July 9th: The Science of Low Carb Diets: Reversing Diabetes and Enhancing Sports Performance


RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/242218906544616/

We are pleased to welcome Stephen Phinney, MD, PhD to present at Mountain Minds Monday: The science of low carb diets: reversing diabetes and enhancing sports performance

While low carbohydrate and ketogenic diets have recently gained popularity, problems with proper formulation and adherence have overshadowed the scientifically-supported improvements shown for both health and sports performance.

Dr. Stephen Phinney, MD, PhD, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer at Virta Health, will explain how when well-formulated ketogenic diets are combined with virtual continuous care, compliance is high and the risks and expense associated with type 2 diabetes can be reduced.

He’ll also discuss how the research supports the use of the ketogenic diet for ultra-endurance competitive athletes who do not thrive on the traditional carbohydrate-loading approach to the sport.

Dr. Phinney has spent 40 years studying diet and exercise, has published over 80 papers and 4 books. He received his MD from Stanford University, PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry from MIT, and did post-doctoral training at the University of Vermont and at Harvard.

Mountain Minds Monday will be held on Monday, July 9th from 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. Pizza and salad is available and we use a pay-what-you-can model ($5 minimum). Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking.
