    Dr. Peter Foley, MBBS, MRCGP : Low Carb Approach

    Post by Jan1 on Sat Nov 11 2017, 10:50

    Dr. Peter Foley is a third generation family medicine doctor, based in Bristol, U.K. He discovered the low-carb approach when he was studying for his MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine, alongside his General Practice specialty training programme.

    A keen sportsman and low-carb cook, he has developed a lifestyle medicine approach which he uses in his daily practice. He is currently researching the impact of a low-carb approach against current standard dietary advice in a pre-diabetic population, which he hopes will award him with an MSc degree. He has enjoyed great success with a variety of patients in his practice and aims to develop his own LCHF clinic in the near future.

    Peter also has an Instagram profile @drpeterjfoley where he posts his own low-carb meals, personal experiences and also shares patient success stories.

    The problem with low-fat products


    Dr Peter Foley explained the problem with low-fat products so well in a tweet ...

    A great example of the dangers of ‘low-fat’ or ‘fat-free’ food… 60 g sugar PER POT… equivalent to 15 teaspoons of sugar. Patients thinking that they are ‘doing the right thing’ but in fact unintentionally compounding the problem.

    People think they are making a better choice when they pick the low-fat product, but are unaware that they are swapping benign natural fat for harmful sugar.
