The above was written by pharmacist, Mr. Sean McKelvey, CEO of the Institute for Personalized Therapeutic Nutrition
The MetabolicHealth Program is founded on the belief that the over-consumption of fructose, simple sugars and refined carbohydrates has lead to a state of insulin resistance in a large subset of the Canadian population.
Through teaching patients how to decrease fructose, simple sugar and total daily carbohydrate intake, the MetabolicHealth Program helps patients walk the path of recovery from the diseases of insulin resistance including type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Obtaining and maintaining a healthy weight and metabolism is simple: don't do carbs.

A QUICK CHAT TOOL FOR EPISODIC CARE APPOINTMENTS
MetabolicHealth Minute FAQ for Healthcare Providers:
1. What evidence is there to support the use of the MetabolicHealth Minute Tool in my practice?
2. How was the tool developed?
3. How effective is this intervention?
4. How should I use this tool?
I pose the above questions because I think that every evidence based healthcare provider should ask them. This tool is the summation of my effort to prescribe low carb quickly in the setting of episodic care. The tool was developed and refined through literature review and hundreds of patient interviews. The MetabolicHealth Minute has NOT been studied in clinical research and is NOT prospectively validated. In my experience, it is highly effective. Yet, at this point, each provider must determine that for him or herself. I recommend that this tool be used at the first point of contact with a patient with obesity and/or diabetes. It would be quite helpful if the prescriber of the MetabolicHealth Minute also recommended a cookbook or receipe website to provide the motivated patient with ideas about 'what to eat'.
Please see HOW TO PRESCRIBE LOW CARB for detailed instructions on how I prescribe low carb in my busy office practice.
