End Your Cholesterol Confusion
The video lessons are presented by Eric Westman, MD, MHS.
Dr. Westman is an internationally renowned authority and educator on the science and practical applications of low-carb and ketogenic diets. For the past 20 years, his clinic at Duke University has been a sought-after destination for both patients and physicians who want to understand and implement the low-carb ketogenic diet to treat chronic illness. He is highly regarded for his research, having spearheaded some of the first clinical trials in the U.S. on low-carb eating patterns. He is an internal medicine physician and board certified in obesity medicine. He is a past president of the Obesity Medicine Association and is a New York Times best-selling author. He is the clinical director of Adapt Your Life® Academy.
Not at all. This is not a low-carb course or a keto course. It is a cholesterol course. Dr. Westman does address cholesterol-related issues that are of unique concern to individuals following low-carb diets but this is a very small part of the course. End Your Cholesterol Confusion is intended to provide education about cholesterol and cardiovascular disease to anyone, regardless of the type of diet they follow.
End Your Cholesterol Confusion is suitable for laypeople and professionals alike. The course presents high-level science and physiology in a down-to-earth manner that delivers actionable education and information for both patients and providers.
