Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast.
Nick Norwitz completed a PhD in neuro-metabolism at Oxford University in just two years and is now pursuing on MD at Harvard University. His research expertise is ketosis and brain aging; however, he has published scientific papers on topics ranging from neuroscience to heart disease to gastrointestinal health to genetics to bone health to diabetes.
Tucker Goodrich started out as a very successful technology executive on Wall Street and a largely self-taught computer scientist and systems engineer. But after getting sick, he became insisted in nutrition research and was able to discover the solution to his health problems. He put all of his chronic disease issues into remission. Since then he has been an avid researcher and writer in the field of nutrition—especially on the topic of seed oils.
In this conversation, Brian, Tucker, and Nick talk about omega-3 and omega-6 PUFAS, the historical usage of industrial and non-industrial seed oils in the human diet, the sugar-spiking effects of seed oils versus the effects of olive and coconut oil, the manufacturing process of avocado oil, the higher oxidation levels in seed oils versus other oils, animal toxicology studies on various seed oils, to what extent keto diets are successful for weight loss because of PUFA reduction, wether supplementing with fish oils is a good idea or not, which foods you can safely avoid in general, the croissant diet, and the P:E diet.
