Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science. 

Dietary researcher Dr. Jeff Volek lays out the science behind why you should declare your independence from dietary carbohydrates -- sugar, flour, starchy vegetables like potatoes, apple juice -- that cause the insulin secretion that puts on fat. Not only that, he explains why eating enough fat -- the right kind of fat -- is essential to getting and staying healthy.

Dr. Michael Eades calls Dr. Volek's book (co-authored with Dr. Stephen Phinney)  "the best low-carb book in print."

Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

Please buy my science-based and funny book, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck." Buying a new (not used!) copy supports my work on this show and it makes a crackling-great gift.
