Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us
, interviewing the luminaries of behavioral science.
Low-carb pioneers Dr. Michael Eades and Dr. Mary Dan Eades are my guests this week. Since the 1980s, they have been behind evidence-based ways to eat, and have helped thousands and thousands of people drop pounds without starving themselves.
They have long understood that it is carbohydrates—sugar, flour, starchy vegetables like potatoes, apple juice—that cause the insulin secretion that puts on fat.
On the show, we'll talk about how to maintain a way of eating, and debunk a lot of widely held myths about diet—myths many doctors still cling to.
