Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast’s Journal Club.

Dr. Matt Calkins is an emergency medicine resident who loves studying the science of longevity, the optimization of all phases of health, and applying his knowledge to physician and patient wellness. Matt earned his M.D. from the University of Florida and holds a B.Sc. in physics.

In this conversation, Tro and Matt talk about the conclusions, parameters, and methods of the DIETFITS study, what can be reasonably concluded from this study and what cannot, some of the weaknesses in the design of the study, conflicts of interest with the lead author of the study, the findings of a recent re-analysis of the DIETFITS study, and some important distinctions between what can be learned from clinical trials and what is observed in clinical practice.
