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

Feb 22, 2022

Listen in today as Jimmy tackles a 2022 study confirming one benefit of a ketogenic way of eating.


“You now have the option of using a low-carb ketogenic diet as an alternative to all the other things your doctor used to use.”

 - Jimmy Moore


In this episode, Jimmy features a study that was published in the January 27, 2022 issue of the Journal of Behavioral Medicine entitled “Depressive symptoms improve over 2 years of type 2 diabetes treatment via a digital continuous remote care intervention focused on carbohydrate restriction.” This research is from Virta Health and features several familiar names in ketogenic research, including Dr. Stephen Phinney, Dr. Sarah Hallberg, Dr. James McCarter, and others. As you may already know, Virta has been in the midst of an ongoing 5-year research looking intently at the impact of a low-carb, ketogenic diet on various parts of health. In this study they conducted a non-randomized, open label study of 262 Type 2 diabetes patients with obesity to see how well they responded to a list of depressive symptom markers with their intentional use of carbohydrate restriction. It’s a fantastic study that shows yet another surprising benefit of being in a healthy state of nutritional ketosis.
