Epilepsy researcher Detlev Boison and low-carb physician Dr. Fred Pescatore are our guests today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Detlev Boison is the lead researcher on a study examining the underlying reasons why a ketogenic diet (high-fat, low-carb) is such an effective means of controlling epilepsy and the resulting seizures. Today he joins us for a quick last-minute interview we weren’t sure we’d get before today’s episode–but it’s cutting-edge stuff we know you’ll love and appreciate! Jimmy and Detlev discuss the new published study, its applicability to human physiology, protein pathology and so much more!

Then in the main interview today, Jimmy invites an old friend of his who’s never been on the podcast before–the great Dr. Fred Pescatore. Jimmy and Dr. Pescatore talk about his years at the Atkins Center working with the late Dr. Robert C. Atkins, the state of low-carb science in 2011, the denial of science by medical schools and many other timely topics! This is a fabulous episode you won’t want to miss!
