: Episode 997 – Dr. Tro Kalayjian, DO, joins Vinnie this Friday to discuss his NSNG story, starting at 350 lbs, med school nutrition education, hunger and satiety, and more!
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS
- Tro is a doctor
- Ivy League med guy
- Used to have to tell people to lose weight
- He, however, was 350 lbs himself
- A little over 5’11”
- Always a hard conversation for both parties
- Shame on both sides
- His colleagues were the most judgmental
- He didn’t know how he ended up so heavy
- He is a low carb guy
- Has had great NSNG success himself
- Has lost over 145 lbs!!!
- Specialties in obesity, diabetes, nutrition
- Tro did med school, 3 years of training for internal medicine
- In the whole of med school, they maybe spent a week on nutrition education
- WHILE they’re learning a bunch of other things
- On average, med schools only spend 25 hours of nutrition
- Nothing compared to anything else
- They spend 500 hours covering most other subjects in med school
- The nutrition consultations that he did give, he’d say “cut sugar and fat, go see a nutritionist”, and that was it
- Like throwing gas at a fire
- If a doctor with the best, very extensive, education can’t figure out why HE is fat, that’s a problem
HUNGER AND SATIETY
- Hunger is the missing link in nutrition
- Tro would eat and eat and never be full
- Really, only low carb people talk and analyze hunger, which is great
- This is a hormonal thing
- Grelin and leptin control your hunger
- Many people get fat because they eat because they’re always hungry!
- Sugars and certain oils mess with satiety
- Hence, more sugar you get, you’ll get hungrier
- Gum chewing releases hormones and opens up your stomach and you’ll want to eat more
- Our livers are not sophisticated enough to tell the difference between real and fake sugar
- Diet soft drinks are BAD!
- Hopefully more people will get on the low carb wagon and consider the importance of these hormones
- Dietitians and nutritionists are the first step
