I often receive emails asking me where people can learn about the science behind low-carbohydrate diets and where to learn more about how to best manage diabetes, heart disease and metabolic syndrome.
The first place I send them is to the Nutrition and Metabolism Society's website which includes information from the top diabetes and low-carb researchers in the world.
Here is their Mission Statement:
The Metabolism Society is dedicated to addressing the problems of obesity, diabetes & cardiovascular disease through public awareness and education. The Society believes specifically that the therapeutic potential of carbohydrate-restricted diets for the treatment of these diseases is under-investigated and under-utilized. The Society seeks to support research in this area. Our mission is to improve current nutritional guidelines and to see that sound scientific information is provided for the public.
On this site, you can learn everything you didn't know about the world of low-carb research, how to attend a meeting focused on low-carb science, how to locate a professional that specializes in low-carb nutrition, and the big one.... is fat really that bad?
You can also join the society and receive up-to-date newsletters and mailings about the research and progress in this area.
I hope you enjoy this resource as much as I do.
