She began researching preventative medicine. She became aware of misconceptions and misinformation regarding human nutrition in the mainstream media and medical community as important driving forces in increasing modern day lifestyle diseases.

    Dr Rimas V Janušonis is a family medicine physician in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the US and uses low-carb diet therapies in his practice at ThedaCare Physicians-Oshkosh. Dr Janušonis speaks from personal experience of the benefit. He struggled with his weight throughout his life, aggravated by the stress of medical school and residency. He had tried the conventional advice to  “eat less and move more” that “is routinely taught as gospel truth” in his profession without success. After routine lab work showed that he had developed metabolic syndrome, that was the “wake-up call he needed” to change his lifestyle and eating habits. He did further reading and research and fully implemented carbohydrate restriction. His metabolic syndrome resolved, he lost weight and has kept it off. It’s still work in progress, he says, but at least he knows he will be around to see his kids (and grandkids) grow up. Results have been so good and sustainable that he felt rejuvenated in his desire to help patients lose weight, improve their health and cardiovascular status, better control their diabetes and even put it into remission.
