More About the Author
Dr. Parker is a leading medical expert on the Mediterranean diet.
After completing medical training, he entered the private practice of office-based internal medicine in Texas (USA), then Florida (USA). For 17 years, Dr. Parker worked in medical clinics, including three practices he started from scratch. During that span he also co-founded an osteoporosis center.
Since 2001, Dr. Parker has been working as a hospitalist in the Phoenix, Arizona (USA), metropolitan area, diagnosing and treating adult patients in the hospital only.
His award-winning first book,"The Advanced Mediterranean Diet: Lose Weight, Feel Better, Live Longer," was published in late 2007. Since then, he has been an active blogger at the Advanced Mediterranean Diet blog. The second edition of "The Advanced Mediterranean Diet" was released in 2012.
In 2009, Dr. Parker founded the Diabetic Mediterranean Diet Blog as part of a comprehensive adaptation of the healthy Mediterranean diet for people with type 2 diabetes. The first fruit of this labor was the Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet, a very-low-carbohydrate weight-loss plan applicable to people with or without diabetes. The Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet (for diabetics and prediabetics) was released in 2010. Both diets are available free at the Diabetic Mediterranean Diet Blog.
Dr. Parker's second book is "Conquer Diabetes and Prediabetes: The Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet," published in 2011.
His current research interest is application of the Paleolithic diet (aka Stone Age or caveman diet) as a treatment for diabetes.
Dr. Parker's professional goals are to expand the reach of his medical expertise far beyond the narrow confines of the hospital patient's room, and to enhance lives by preventing disease, improving health, and increasing longevity via healthy lifestyle education.
