Konstantin Monastyrsky is a European-educated[clarification needed] pharmacist, a former award-winning computer programmer and software entrepreneur, and a well-known Russian American medical writer, lecturer, and radio talk show host, and the author of four books about health and nutrition.
In 1978, he emigrated to the United States. From 1985 to 1991, he worked at two Wall Street firms: at First Boston Corporation as a senior systems analyst and at Goldman Sachs & Co as a technology consultant to Dr. Fischer Black, the co-author of the Nobel Prize-winning Black–Scholes theory of options trading. Between 1991 and 1998, he was the president of Okna.com ("Windows" in Russian), a software company.
Monastyrsky wrote two Russian language books, entitled Functional Nutrition: the Foundation of Absolute Health and Longevity and Reversing Metabolic Syndrome: How Carbohydrates Ruin Your Health and Wealth, and What You Can Do To Reverse the Onslaught of Metabolic Syndrome.
Monastyrsky released his first English language book, entitled Fiber Menace: the Truth About the Leading Role of Fiber in Diet Failure, Constipation, Hemorrhoids, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease and Colon Cancer in 2005. His work has been widely viewed as inappropriate and misleading by the scientific community due to a lack of evidence to support his claims.
