Good episode? Give it some love!
We like the idea of doing something that’s scientific.

We want to know that the choices we make to lose weight, gain muscle, and live longer are based on good evidence.

Unfortunately, the "science" that's presented in the media and elsewhere is often misleading, irrelevant, or untrue. It's easy to be confused.

You might not have a Ph.D. in research science and maybe you don’t have time to read research papers every day. However, you can still become fitter, healthier, leaner, and happier by taking a few minutes to learn what to look for in a scientific paper or news report. 

In this podcast, you’re going to learn how to critically evaluate research as it's presented in the media and in the academic literature. Evelyn Kocur, also known as “Carb Sane," comes on the show to teach you what to look for in a scientific study and how to avoid being fooled by yourself and others when evaluating research. After mastering the concepts in this podcast, you'll be able to interpret, understand, and use (or decide not to use) the health science information you see online and elsewhere.
