Brilliant show! Thanks for putting it all together, Dave and Sibhon – I am really benefiting from this series. I have shared many of David Diamond’s presentations with friends and family – this is a great discussion to add to my list of shareable resources.

I love how strident he is regarding “processed”
and “whole” foods. These meaningless terms
are bandied about in the LCHF/keto community
to the detriment of understanding the issues.

Dave/Siobhan. Any chance of you making transcripts of these interviews? There is a ton of good information in them that would be easier to re-find in a text format.
