    South African-born Dr Simon Johnson is a knee and shoulder orthopaedic surgeon in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand who actively promotes low-carb, high-healthy-fat (LCHF) diets to his patients to boost health and prevent disease. Dr Johnson has limited his practice to knee and shoulder surgery because he believes that a limited scope of practice is the best way to deliver repeatable high-quality service. His special interests lie in uni-compartmental (or partial) knee replacements and arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery and nutrition as a powerful preventative measure. He recognises the role that obesity plays in his patients and says that the condition often precludes being able to operate on them. He believes that official dietary guidelines need a complete overhaul because people want to follow rules and comply. “Even if the rules are wrong and onsensical, they will still follow them – and that applies to doctors, too,” he says. As an active member of the New Zealand Orthopaedic Training Committee, he participates regularly in the education and training of orthopaedic registrars. Dr Johnson graduated as a medical doctor from the University of the Witwatersrand Wits university where also specialised in orthopaedic surgery and later completed his training training in England.

    Canadian Isabelle Couture is a low-carb, keto coach at Ceto-Solutions, based in Quebec. For most of her life, Isabelle followed “expert” advice to be slim and healthy, both on the nutritional and athletic side. Despite all her efforts, she became morbidly obese and severely depressed. In 2017, with her scientific background in microbiology and immunology, she decided to do her own research into optimum nutrition for health and weight loss. She came across compelling scientific evidence for benefits of low-carb, high-healthy-fat (LCHF) and ketogenic diets and changed her eating habits to go with the evidence. She quickly lost weight, has maintained the weight loss, weaned herself off all drugs and no longer has symptoms of depression. Her goal now is to help others who want to regain control of their lives and health, one meal at a time. Isabelle trained as a low-carb, keto coach at Ceto-solutions, affiliated with Dr Evelyne Bourdua-Roy.

    Dr Peter J Jensen MD is a full-time hospitalist and physician in Columbia, Mississippi, who supports the science for low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) and ketogenic therapies to treat and prevent serious life-threatening, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Dr Jensen says that the conventional theory of the cause of coronary artery disease has been driven by the so-called “Diet-Heart Hypothesis” that is based on flawed research. The problem with the diet-heart hypothesis, he says, is that not only does intake of saturated fat, which can raise total cholesterol, but also raises HDL or good cholesterol, not correlate with heart disease, but that blood cholesterol itself doesn’t correlate with heart disease either.The prime cause of the development of atherosclerotic vascular lesions, Dr Jensen says, is more likely the effect of high insulin levels which are the prime characteristic of metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. For more information, you can call 267-521-1949, email Dr Jensen on pjj@pjensenmd.com or visit his website: Peter J Jensen MD (pjensenmd.com).
