Podcast of Dr. Eric Westman discussing the New Atkins for a New You book

Writing the post below about sodium and Dr. Westman’s recommendations prompted me to listen again to a podcast from Jimmy Moore’s site.

Episode 338 contains a very long, extensive interview with Dr. Eric Westman  regarding the book I mention below, The New Atkins for a New You, and including a lot of discussion of his own extensive clinical experience and the scientific underpinnings for the recommendations in the book.  By the way, he credits Dr. Phinney for developing the understanding of the increased need for sodium (salt) intake when eating very low carb.

  1. Hi. I picked up your website from Jimmy Moore’s New Paleo, Low-Carb & Health Blogs list for May 2012. I run a low carb/paleo blog and want to welcome you to the neighborhood! Jimmy has been a great help to me and if I can help you, just let me know. I have a news channel which links out to the latest news from bloggers (see below), so if you have some low carb or paleo news you’d like me to consider, please let me know by email.
    Put “news” someplace in your email title so I won’t miss it please! My main site is http://CravingSugar.net and the news channel is http://CravingSugar.net/news/
    Thanks and hope to hear from you…

    • Hi Joe, Thanks for visiting. Sorry for the delay in responding. I was away and found it much more difficult to keep up with things than I anticipated, then caught a nasty virus on the plane ride home.
