Empowering people everywhere to revolutionize their health.

    #49 - Dr. Tro Kalayjian

    #49 - Dr. Tro Kalayjian

    In this interview, we discuss calories in/calories out, the carbohydrate-insulin model, food addiction, and many practical aspects of how and why low-carb works for him and his patients. We also explore the limitations of our knowledge and what does or does not make him a low-carb zealot.

    If you haven't seen the documentary Fat Fiction, I highly recommend that you watch it. It's a well-made, professionally produced film about how the U.S. dietary guidelines created an atmosphere that undoubtedly contributed to our current crisis of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

    But the film also shows us what we can do about it. It provides a message of hope as it follows low-carb doctors and nutritionists, showing how they impact the lives of their patients.

    Documentaries about nutrition are challenging to pull off. The director's decisions are critical: How much detail should be included on each topic? How much science should be highlighted? How much time should be spent on inspirational stories? And how should the film's point of view be balanced?

    Jen and I discuss these topics and more in this engaging interview.

    #47 - Adele Hite, PhD

    In this interview, we dissect the dietary guidelines from an angle many have not heard before, and we delve into topics where myths are widespread such as vegetable oils, gluconeogenesis and more.

    Many people like catchy sound bites. Many like separating the world into "good" and "bad." Not Adele Hite. She has made it her mission to ensure we question dietary dogma, accept nothing at face value, and understand the science behind our beliefs. And, she keeps us focused on the implications of all this, too.

    Warning: listening to this episode may open your eyes to a more careful interpretation of nutrition research!

    #46 - Dom D'Agostino, PhD

    You can't look at the world of ketone research without seeing the impact of Dr. D'Agostino. Dom is the leading authority of how ketogenic diets and exogenous ketones impact brain health and function.

    In this brief interview, we learn about Dom's research interests, and the important details of of how ketones protect the brain and where their clinical potential may lie.

    Although our interview was cut short, Dom packs in a wealth of information about how we can use ketones to maintain brain health.

    The ability to drink your way to elevated ketone blood levels with exogenous ketones has opened a world of research about the impact of ketones on health and athletic performance.

    #44 - Angela Poff, PhD

    Cancer. The word no one wants to hear. A terrifying diagnosis with treatments aptly named "toxic" therapies.

    Dr. Angela Poff is a leading researcher investigating revolutionary, non-toxic metabolic therapies for cancer. Ketones are a leading candidate for that role.

    How do different types of cancer respond to ketones? How do different types of ketones affect cancer cells? The answers to these questions could revolutionize the way we treat one of the most feared and deadly diseases.

    Both ketogenic diets and exogenous ketone therapy show tremendous promise, but the science is still mostly in the pre-clinical stage, meaning non-human studies. Dr. Poff is on the front lines of this important research, helping us make progress toward evidence-based answers.

Refreshing contrast to commercial/product pushing diet industry

Dietdoctor has been a rock on my weight loss journey.
Bret’s podcast has been great. Fascinating, satisfying amount of med depth as well as entertaining to listen to.

The BEST podcast!

This is the BEST podcast. I have a PhD myself but medical language is a language of its own. Bret always breaks down / translates what the doctors are saying so that it's understandable to the layperson. He also asks the questions that I'm thinking and makes sure the information is applicable to daily life. He presents solid information. Production quality is high. I highly recommend! Thank you, Bret!

Balanced, informative interviews of relevant topics

Bret Scher does a really great job of doing balanced, informative interviews. The topics are relevant to a lot of aspects of low carb diet and lifestyle. Although Dr. Scher is a proponent of low carb, he seems completely receptive to exploring and probing competing perspectives - always with science and evidence at the forefront.
