Its amazing how much things have changed.
When I went to my doctor in 2010-2012 .. he did not approve of my diet one bit - gave me a bunch of literature and wanted to send me to a dietitian to get "educated"
I started diet again a few weeks ago and went in today to get my first baseline series of tests done .. "What diet are you doing?" "Keto .. Atkins .. whatever its being called these days" ... "Excellent - very effective if you stick with it - very healthy" .. exact same doctor as from 2010/2012. LOL!
Funny how we were the "arrogant" ones back then ...
Yeah .. I can't recall what test it was for .. but he said if I'm in Keto I don't need to do the fast .. I was surprised that not only his attitude changed but he was more familiar with the specifics of it ...
As for docs, the "Im superior" attitude becomes ingrainec rather auickly. When I worked at a research facility where dozens of MD/PhDs congegated in the summer months, only a rare few were not so opinionated. I can think of three, total. They thrived on competition and running. Somewhere their innate humanity had been drummed out.
Our family physician was a cool guy. The kind my mothet often invited over for dinner. She never invited any of the docs mentioned above.
