Dr. Steve Parker is a leading medical expert on the Mediterranean diet. After completing his medical training, he entered the private practice of office-based internal medicine in Austin, TX, then Pensacola, FL. For 17 years, Dr. Parker worked in small medical offices, including three sole proprietorship practices that he started from scratch. During that span he also co-founded an osteoporosis center.
In 2008, his first book, The Advanced Mediterranean Diet: Lose Weight, Feel Better, Live Longer, was published by Vanguard Press. The book has a chapter on adaptation of the AdvancedMediterranean Diet for people with type 2 diabetes, but it is not a comprehensive approach to nutritional issues affecting people with diabetes.
His latest book, “Conquer Diabetes and Prediabetes: The Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet,” was published in 2011. It’s a comprehensive adaptation of the Mediterranean diet for people with diabetes, prediabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
His current research interest is the Paleolithic diet as a treatment for diabetes.
