The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore

Jul 10, 2019

Keto researcher Dr. James McCarter is our special interview guest on Episode 1527 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.

Dr. James McCarter is an experienced executive and researcher with a track-record of success in early-stage life-science technology companies. Most recently, he led research and clinical operations for San Francisco-based Virta Health, a tech-enabled nationwide medical provider that delivers the first clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes without medications or surgery. Dr. McCarter directed the Virta – Indiana University Health clinical trial proving reversal of diabetes with medically supervised nutritional ketosis resulting in changes to the American Diabetes Association standards of care and consensus statement on nutrition in 2019.


Listen in today as Jimmy and Dr. McCarter dig into the exciting results of the Virta Health study, how this study changed the thinking of the American Diabetes Association, the profound effects that his group saw with participants from year one to year two, how this information is helping to bring keto to the mainstream, and much more.

“This way of eating should pay health dividends in the long run by allowing people to scale back and possibly remove their dependence on diabetes medicines.”

— Dr. James McCarter
