Dr. Lindberg received his medical degree in 1985 from university of Athens. From 1986 until 1990, he was a research associate at the Hormone Laboratory at Aker University Hospital in Oslo, Norway, where he focused on insulin resistance and diabetes. He then worked at their Department Of Internal Medicine. Between 1991 and 1998 he worked in both emergency medicine and his sub-specialties within Internal Medicine at Norway’s Lovisenberg Diakon Hospital. For several short periods during this time, he also served as Ship's Physician for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Royal Viking Line, Royal Cruise Line and Crystal Cruises.
From 1996 until 1998, Dr. Lindberg was a Post-graduate Research Fellow at the Department of Endocrinology, University of California in San Diego and the VA Medical Center in La Jolla, California. His research during this time focused on insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity and was conducted under the guidance of Professor Robert R. Henry
Dr. Lindberg was also engaged by the Røde Kors Klinikk (Red Cross Clinic) from 1992 until 2000. From March 1999 until February 2000, he worked part time at the Norwegian Institute of Aviation Medicine. As a certified Specialist in Aviation Medicine, Dr. Lindberg is authorized to conduct medical examinations of aviation personnel (pilots, flight attendants, etc).
Early in 1999, Dr. Lindberg founded Weight In Balance (Vekt i Balanse), the first, and still the only, clinic in Norway specializing in the treatment of severe obesity. In 2001, he published his first book, Naturlig slank (Lose Weight and Feel Great with the Iso-Glycemic Diet) which has been translated into Swedish, Finnish, Greek and English. A year later, he published a cook book containing recipes as well as guidelines for how to achieve and maintain a balanced diet. In 2003, he published a booklet listing the glycemic index and glycemic load of approximately 200 foods. This booklet also explains the basic theory of how to stay slim and healthy by using the iso-glycemic diet.
Dr. Lindberg's practice focuses primarily on the diagnosis and treatment of internal medical and hormonal disorders such as diabetes, obesity, thyroid di
sorders, cardiovascular and lipid disorders.
Dr. Lindberg has also developed a selection of low-glycemic products that offer alternatives which not only are easy and accessible but also taste good.
What is Dr. Lindberg’s Isoglycemic Greek Mediterranean Lifestyle Concept?
A simple, delicious, well balanced slow-carb/good-fat, Mediterranean inspired new approach to eating, exercise and lifestyle designed to keep you healthier, biologically younger and naturally slim.
The evidence is out there: lifestyle disorders such as obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance/syndrome X and cardiovascular disease; chronic inflammatory diseases such as asthma or rheumatic illnesses; female infertility; cancer – all have a great deal to do with the kind of food we eat.
In his lectures on board, Dr Fedon Alexander Lindberg, who runs four state-of-the-art metabolic clinics in Norway, offering patients multidisciplinary prevention and treatment for these degenerative disorders, shows you how to change your lifestyle so you can control your weight, your blood sugar and improve your overall health. He shows you what foods are compatible with human evolutionary history and how food affects hormones, metabolism and health.
Returning to his Greek roots, he advocates a modern, revised and updated version of the traditional Mediterranean diet, a well balanced sensible ‘slow carb- good fat’ approach, based on eating natural foods and keeping a close eye among others on the Glycemic Index and the Glycemic Load. Lecture topics include ”The modern Mediterranean Diet and balanced blood sugar- Key to good health?”, “Fats that kill and fats that heal” and “Heart Healthy, Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory foods”.
His methods are from the cutting edge of scientific research and his recipes are at the most delicious end of the ‘Mediterranean diet’ spectrum. Listen, understand, eat and enjoy the healthy life!
