Real Food for Athletes – You Can’t Outrun a Bad Diet

Mark Cucuzzella, MD

Mark Cucuzzella, MD reviews the current state of the obesity and diabetes pandemic as it relates to public health as well as to the field of podiatry. Type two diabetes was once felt to be an irreversible chronic condition but now we know that with nutritional interventions especially a low carbohydrate real food approach that this condition can be placed into remission. For athletics and endurance sport, there is also a great value for adapting the body to be able to utilize fat as fuel especially for those recreational athletes prone to metabolic syndrome, obesity, and type two diabetes.
