Video: Interactive Workshop Featuring Dr. Steve Phinney at November 2016 Low Carb Down Under Conference
This month's video presentation features Dr. Steve Phinney, a renowned researcher with expertise in very-low-carb, ketogenic diets and co-author of one of my favorite books: The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living. I consider myself very fortunate to have met and talked with Dr. Phinney several times, in addition to hearing him speak at conferences. Here is a recent workshop recorded in Sydney, Australia, in which he provides guidance on personalizing your low-carb lifestyle for weight loss and overall health.
