About Low Carb USA™

Low Carb USA™ is an organization focused on dietary education and support by hosting scientific conferences, providing online coaching and mentoring, and legislative efforts. Low Carb USA™, founded in 2015, hosts educational public conferences at which scientists and doctors present their latest research findings into nutrition and the low-carb lifestyle. Online coaching and mentoring forums are offered to help people learn how to adopt this lifestyle and change their lives.  A new initiative is also underway to support a unified coalition of communities advocating science based nutrition advice to influence the USDA to modify dietary guidelines using evidence-based research. For this effort, Low Carb USA™ is joining forces with journalist Nina Teicholz, author of the best-selling book The Big Fat Surprise and the Nutrition Coalition.



Doug Reynolds, CEO

By my early 30’s, I had run almost a hundred marathons and ultras and could eat pretty much anything I liked.  As I approached 40, however, I noticed I was putting on a little weight each year and, no matter how hard I trained, I was not able to get the weight off again.  In the end I was constantly injured and hating running, and life itself.

When I was first introduced to the concept of the Ketogenic / Banting lifestyle, I could not believe that an athlete could function without carbohydrates.  However, I am an engineer at heart and I started reading all the research and I found it made total sense.  It explained all the issues I was having, including the things I struggled with back when I was running well.

So I decided to give it a go.  I had learned about the ‘Keto-Flu’ during my research so I was expecting that towards the end of the first week.  The adaptation seemed to last about 10 days and after that the results were spectacular.  My weight started coming down and running became easier and more enjoyable each day.

I am back down to the weight I was when I was 30, my recovery after training is better than it has ever been, my sore knees and other aches and pains have cleared up and I am no longer experiencing any respiratory issues.

I am now committed to helping to reverse the current consensus on diet here in the US and around the world.  The consequences of the governmental dietary policies introduced in 1977 have been catastrophic and it’s time we all took a stand!

Pam Devine, Operations:

I turned 47 last fall, and am super excited that I’ve found something that works to help me lose the weight that I’ve put on since turning 40 which, no matter what I did, I couldn’t lose.  I seemed to work out more than many of the people I encountered during my work day, and was getting super frustrated with my failure to keep it under control.  I’ve also found peace of mind, feeling totally satiated and more focused than I’ve ever been!

I have a passion for helping people, and have over 40 years’ experience in service based environments including customer, employee, or marketing team support in either a healthcare diagnostic setting, hospital, doctors’ office, retail, and the corporate arena.  It is always find pleasure in making an experience easier, and more worthwhile.

I also have extensive experience with hosting events and overseeing the day to day operations of a large organization.  Now I’ll be doing it for something I’m really passionate about too!

With our commitment to put on events to share all the latest research with our growing community and with our coaching program we will be able to ‘Turn Consensus On It’s Head!!  Won’t you join us and help make strides, one meal at a time, towards halting the catastrophic rise in obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic diseases that we’ve seen since 1977.
