Dr. Ted Naiman graduated from the Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 1997. He is a board-certified family medicine physician who practices at the Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Naiman first learned about low-carb diets when he was an intern and heard about it from a patient who reversed the ill effect of his Type 2 diabetes with the Atkins diet.
At medical school, Dr. Naiman ignored the discouragement from his instructors and started researching the macronutrients and the impact they have on health. What he discovered about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets astounded him and he’s been recommending them to his patients ever since.
