Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. We are joined on the show today by Dr. Steven Bishop. He attended UVA School of Medicine and did his residency at VCU where he was the chief resident. He went on to become the Clerkship Director and Associate Chair of education at VCU.

In our discussion today, Dr. Bishop shares the story of his journey away from conventional approaches/thinking to a lifestyle/low-carb approach to treating metabolic disease. In light of the diverse responses of various countries to Covid, we discuss the value of keeping an open mind rather than being dogmatic without having all of the information needed to make an informed decision. We talk about the importance of staying curious as a doctor rather then falling into the rut of giving our patients cookie cutter prescriptions. Finally, we discuss the variety of tragic negative effects of social isolation.
