In this episode, Tro, Brian, Matt, and Laura talk about the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recent recommendations with regard to children and low-carb diets, the AAP’s recommendations for children with regard to GLP1s and bariatric surgery, the differences between a low-carb diet that treats epilepsy and a low-carb diet tailored to treat metabolic disease, and why simply getting away from processed foods drastically improves health.
