Tackling type 2 diabetes - Peter Brukner

This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Dr Peter Brukner, one of the OGs in the low carbohydrate space. They discuss how he was influenced by Professor Tim Noakes to do something about his own health when we realised he was no longer the fit, metabolically healthy man he was, and was challenged to do something about it. His own success with improving his metabolic markers then got him interested in the wider application of the approach for fat loss, improving blood sugar control and reversing symptoms of Type 2 diabetes led Dr Brukner to broaden his practice to one that educated and informed on the power of low carbohydrate diets for chronic disease. This has lead to him authoring a book (Fat Lot of Good) and setting up a not for profit organisation (Sugar by Half) and a new diabetes reversal programme, Defeat Diabetes. 

Peter Brukner is a specialist sports and exercise physician whose most recent position has been Australian cricket team doctor for the past five years.
