Dr. Chanh Tran Tien

Dr. Chanh Tran Tien is an award-winning graduate of the Faculty of Medicine in Paris, France. He began his occupation as a general practitioner and sports physician.

Early on in his career, Dr. Tran Tien became interested in nutrition and obesity issues. At the time, the only option was low-calorie, "balanced" diets. Without renouncing the notion of energy balance, Dr. Tran Tien highlighted the key roles played by insulin and pancreatic dysfunction in relation to obesity issues by focusing his career and research on nutrition with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity problems.

Twenty years ago, issues such as Syndrome X and Polymetabolic Syndrome were not commonly referenced. However, Dr. Tran Tien understood that numerous pathologies were strongly associated with being overweight. He concluded that weight loss is essential for treating such illnesses as Type II Diabetes, Hypertension, Dyslipidemia (cholesterol and triglycerides), sleep apnea, acid reflux disease and more. Referencing protein diet studies by Dr. Blackburn at Harvard in the 1970s and utilizing the latest research on protein diets, Dr. Tran Tien developed a new protocol that was safer and easier for his patients.

In addition to this very rigorous scientific approach, Dr. Tran Tien also emphasized the psychological aspect and human dimension of weight issues. He has written three books on dieting and weight issues and now spends his time consulting patients at his clinic in Paris and giving lectures in various countries, particularly in North America.
