Move from carb confusion to carb confidence! Overwhelmed by the avalanche of information out there about diets and health?

But what if you can’t imagine life without fruit or bread? Why won’t someone just make all this diet stuff simple? They have! Eric Westman, MD, has over twenty years of experience as an internal medicine doctor and obesity medicine specialist. He’s helped patients at his Keto Medicine Clinic at Duke University lose over 26,000 pounds and reverse conditions like type 2 diabetes, PCOS, high blood pressure, and more.
