I recently did an interview with Seth Yoder, who has a master's degree in nutrition science and writes the blog The Science of Nutrition. Seth caught my attention recently with his withering review of The Big Fat Surprise, the latest book to claim that ideological/incompetent scientists and public policy makers got the science of nutrition backward and we should all be eating low-carb, high-fat, high-meat diets. I was impressed by how deeply Seth dug into the reference list, and how well he picked up on subtle but troubling misrepresentations of the evidence.
Last week, Seth and I got together at a local brewpub to do an interview. We were joined by Carrie Dennett, an MPH/RDN who has a nutrition blog and writes for the Seattle Times. I'd probably do a lot more interviews if I could ride my bike to them and have my interviewer buy me a drink.
Speaking of drinks, by the end of the interview I had a little buzz-- you might hear it in my voice if you listen closely. As usual, I had plenty to say about body fat regulation, food reward, and other topics, with plenty of side trips to discuss particularly fascinating studies. Also, the word of the day was 'compelling'.
Enjoy the interview!
