Dietmar and Elizabeth Gann

Dietmar Gann, M.D., a Tucson cardiologist, presents The Diet of Hope, a nonsurgical, rapid weight loss program to fight obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease with a low carb, low sugar diet.

The featured speaker for the January 15 health lecture, The Diet of Hope, is Tucson cardiologist, Dietmar Gann, M.D. During this presentation, Dr. Gann will speak about the relationship of diet and disease. Dr. Gann and his wife, Elizabeth, a clinical nutritionist, have developed a weight management and nutrition program that can help prevent and eliminate heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. Dr. Gann’s lecture will highlight the most important dietary considerations to help you feel better, live longer and prevent significant health problems.

Dr. Gann recently retired from his cardiology practice to specialize in a dietary approach to help prevent cardiac and metabolic disease. For the last six years, the Ganns have treated overweight patients that have the associated risks of hypertension, heart disease and diabetes. The Diet of Hope is a low carbohydrate, portion controlled diet that has helped to transform lives because of the significant results achieved with the program. These benefits include weight loss with clinical reductions of triglycerides, cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure. This dietary program has also achieved a corresponding decreased clinical need for prescription medications.

Dr. Gann has published a study in the American Journal of Cardiology related to 38 of his patients with proven coronary heart disease. The study established that the Diet of Hope is very successful in the treatment of heart and metabolic disease. Dr. Gann is confident that this dietary program is better than other weight loss programs. Elizabeth Gann states, “We educate our patients in proper eating and portion control. No artificial food is used, no appetite suppressing drugs are needed and the food is simple, nutritious and easy to prepare.”

Even if you don’t need to lose weight, you will enjoy hearing Dr. Dietmar and Elizabeth Gann’s views on the relationship of diet and disease. You will be impressed with the significant positive impact that a low sugar/low carbohydrate diet can have on your health.
