This page is especially dedicated to all you Low Carb Skeptics out there! Yes, a few years back, I was one of you!
In here is a curated list of science researchers, advocates and influencers who have one thing in common: steadfastly pushing the message that metabolic health is attainable using the proper perspective in nutrition - by putting trust in nature and scientific evidence first, and not with any kind of industry propaganda or dogma.
With big thanks to these scientists, researchers, fellow colleagues in the medical profession who have stood up for ethical medical practice and evidence-based medicine despite getting persecuted and ostracized (especially Dr. Tim Noakes and Dr. Gary Fettke), as well as all the other advocates/adherents/influencers of the "proper human diet" from non-medical fields (including Gary Taubes, Nina Teicholz and Dave Feldman) who have been steadfast in holding their ground for the sake of science and the truth - I have awakened from my deep slumber and now I know more about those lies that I was taught in medical school. With all their help, I had to go back to the previous lessons and "researches" I've been taught and learn to critically RETHINK, in the process thereby unlearning what I needed to UNLEARN, and relearning what I had to RELEARN from my basic medical education.
Like Dr. Tim Noakes, I had to learn to humble myself into accepting the fact that through all those years, based on the "best medical practice" that I've been taught in nutritional science, I've been duped and I was actually giving the wrong dietary and lifestyle advise to my patients. And to all my past patients, my sincere apologies. If only I knew better!
And that's how I got to where I am right now.

Dr. Ken Berry, MD is a Family Medicine Specialist in Camden, TN and has over 20 years of experience in the medical field. He graduated from University Of Tennessee Health Science Center College Of Medicine medical school in 2000. He is affiliated with medical facilities such as Camden General Hospital and Henry County Medical Center.
Dr. Berry is the author of the bestseller 'Lies My Doctor Told Me' which exposes myths and misleading health advice from well-meaning doctors, such as avoiding fat. He also has a very popular youtube channel. Dr. Berry’s own health dramatically improved when he embraced a ketogenic diet.
Dr. Dominic D’Agostino is an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. He is also a Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC).
The main focus of his lab over the last 10 years has been understanding the anticonvulsant and neuroprotective mechanism of the ketogenic diet and ketone metabolite supplementation. The shift in brain metabolism (from glucose to ketones) reduces neuronal hyperexcitability, oxidative stress and enhances brain metabolism. This approach can be used to treat a wide variety of pathologies linked pathophysiologically to metabolic dysregulation, including cancer.
Dr. Michael R. Eades received his BSCE degree in Civil Engineering from California Polytechnic University (Cal Poly), Pomona, California and his MD from the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences (UAMS).
After completing training in General Surgery as UAMS, Dr. Eades (along with his wife) founded Medi-Stat Medical Clinics, a chain of general family medicine outpatient care centers in central Arkansas, where he practiced general family medicine for over a decade.

Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt is a Swedish medical doctor based in Karlstad who specialises in family medicine He is primarily interested in how food and lifestyle can improve a patient's health and reduce their medication needs.
In 2007, Dr. Eenfeldt started the blog “Kostdoktorn” – a Swedish word that means “Diet Doctor”. The goal was to make it simple for anyone to learn about low carb, high fat nutrition and discuss their results. It rapidly became the most popular health blog in Sweden and one of the most popular blogs in all categories.
In the spring of 2011 the English version of the Diet Doctor blog was launched. It was not immediately popular and for several years it mostly contained translated articles from the Swedish site. Slowly, things started to gather momentum. Income from book sales and frequent lecturing allowed Dr. Eenfeldt to gather a small team of co-workers and the website began to grow in popularity worldwide.
DietDoctor.com now has over 2 million visits per month and still receives no money from industry, offers no products for sale and contains no ads. It is funded entirely by paid subscribers with the goal of spreading the word about outdated nutritional information and to push for a food revolution.
