Hello, and welcome to Protecting Your Nest with Dr. Tony Hampton. Dr. Tony has been practicing medicine as a board-certified family medicine doctor for over 22 years. He is also board-certified in obesity medicine and, as part of his commitment to life-long learning and personal growth, is currently working on a masters degree in Nutrition and Functional Medicine at the University of Western States. Dr. Tony is currently practicing medicine at Advocate Aurora Healthcare System in Illinois and has previously served as Medical Director of the Advocate Operating System to address social determinants of health in at-risk patient populations.
In this episode, Dr. Tony explains the NEST and ROPE acronyms he uses to help instruct his patients and teach people about nutrition and general health. Food can be either a medicine or a poison depending on what you eat. In general, we need to avoid three types of food: starchy vegetables, sugar, and grains. In tandem with this explanation, Dr Tony discusses basic concepts and offers introductory advice on fasting, nutrition, hydration, exercise, metabolic disease, microbiology, sleep, and many more topics.
