Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. Sean O’Mara is a Performance and Longevity MD/Researcher, Speaker, and 2016 NSF Grant Recipient. He is founder and operator of MedCon Wellness—a medical practice dedicated to reversing & preventing chronic disease. Dr. O’Mara is determined to do more than simply treating disease symptoms, and, by innovatively exploiting both science and nature along with proprietary technology, he achieves amazing results with his patients.
In our discussion, we talk about Dr. O’Mara’s personal experience with and discovery of the low carb/high fat way of eating, the structure of a hypothetical, future health care system built to serve a healthy population rather than a diseased population, financial conflicts of interest in the current insurance model of health care, why visceral fat works so well as a metric for measuring metabolic health, the relationship between visceral fat loss and insulin resistance, the relationship between the microbiome and metabolic health, and foods that help build a healthy microbiome.
Additionally, we converse about processed keto replacement foods that contain sugar alcohols and pre-biotic fibers and their effect on the gut microbiome, why visceral fat is a better marker than subcutaneous fat, high intensity exercise, the difference between exercise and activity, how to determine what is the right diet for you, how fermentation effects foods high in carbohydrates and makes them better food sources for humans, and a look at Dr. O’Mara’s personal diet.
