Biochemistry professor, researcher, and author Dr. Richard Feinman Is our guest in episode 1328 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show".
The low-carb, high-fat message is a force to be reckoned with around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution. In this special LLVLC Classic edition, we bring you an interview that Jimmy conducted with Dr. Feinman, as well as a special episode of Ask The Low-Carb Experts.
Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb studycompared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!
