Dr. Èvelyne Bourdua-Roy
Speaker at the Low Carb Universe 2019
I have been a family doctor based in Contrecoeur, Quebec, in a cooperative medical clinic since I graduated from Université de Montréal in 2015. I have special interest in reversing chronic health problems related to lifestyle, such as type 2 diabetes and obesity, with therapeutic nutrition (low carbohydrate diets, ketogenic diet, intermittent and prolonged fasting) and other lifestyle measures. In January 2017, I founded Clinique Reversa to help patients reverse their lifestyle-related chronic conditions with diet, with the help of a multidisciplinary team.
I have trained with Dr. Jason Fung, author of the books Obesity Code and Diabetes Code, and his team, at Intensive Dietary Management, in Scarborough, Ontario. I am certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine. I co-authored the book Eat Fat to Lose Weight, published in January 2018 in French, which has become a huge bestseller in the province of Quebec. I have also blogged for DietDoctor, the most prestigious website on low carb and keto diets. I presented on chronic pain and diet at the international conference Low Carb Breckenridge, in 2018, and frequently gives presentations to doctors and the general public in Quebec.
