Why is insulin so important for us to control and why does a ketogenic diet help so many people? Professor Ben Bikman has been studying these questions in his lab at BYU for years and he is one of the foremost authorities on the subject. As you will see in this interview, he is also passionate about this topic. He describes the roles of insulin and glucagon, how protein intake affects them, the role of ketones as a metabolic actor, and of course the practical aspects of living low carb while being a father, a husband and a researcher.

Life changes can be hard. No question about that. But they don't always have to be. Sometimes you just need a little hope to get you started. Jen Unwin has decades of experience helping people change their ways to improve their lives. More recently, she has focused her attention to helping people succeed instituting low carb lifestyles. Know what to eat is one thing. Implementing it and sticking with it is an entirely different issue that involves our psyche and emotions as much as our glucose and insulin. Jen helps us see the challenges and potential solutions most of us face as we embark of our quest for healthy life changes.

Dr. Ken Berry wants us all to be aware that much of what our doctors say may be a lie. Maybe not an outright malicious lie, but much of what "we" believe in medicine can be traced back to word-of-mouth teachings without a scientific basis. In his book, "Lies My Doctor Told Me" he uncovers the most common of these misconceptions. He also shares his story how he learned the power of a ketogenic diet and how that has revolutionized his ability to help his patients. Dr. Berry has an open and honest approach and pulls no punches. That's one reason why he is always informative and entertaining!

They tried to silence him simply for trying to help his patients eat better and improve their health. Fortunately they failed. Now Dr. Fettke, along with his wife Belinda, has made it his mission to uncover the truth behind the anti-meat establishment and much of what he has discovered is shocking. He continues to work as an orthopdeic surgeon, but he sees a better way to helping those who are obese or suffer from diabetes- LCHF. Or as he calls it, real food nutrition. He is outspoken, witty and a true low carb hero.

It's no secret that health and nutrition is a polarizing topic with experts frequently disagreeing on the best path and the best evidence. Dr. Spencer Nadolsky is a bit of an anomaly as he openly wants to explore low carb nutrition, low fat nutrition, multiple forms of exercise, and use it all to help his individual patients. He is board certified in family medicine, obesity medicine, and is about to start his preventive medicine fellowship, It's clear his mission is to help people improve their health and improve their lives, and he believes we don't have to agree on one way to do it. He also has a particular interest in lipids and how they apply to low carb lifestyles, and is spearheading an effort to learn as much as we can about the unique physiology of Lean Mass Hyper Responders. I hope you will appreciate his approach, his willingness to defy being in a specific "camp" of practice, and his goal of helping us all improve our health.
