In Episode 1198 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we present to you an interview with nutritional science researcher and fatty acid expert Dr. Alvin Berger as our interview guest featured today. With all the proliferation of information about the positive role fats play in our diet (especially in the context of a reduced-carbohydrate intake), it can sometimes get overwhelming trying to figure out what fats to consume and how much. As so many of you know, all fats are not created equal and some are better than others at giving you the benefits you are looking for. This is something a PhD in Lipid and Nutritional Biochemistry who also has some post-doctoral experience in lipid signaling molecular biology named Dr. Alvin Berger is abundantly aware of. He’s been researching this subject for the past three decades and has seen his fair share of games being played to bamboozle an unsuspecting general public, including with the much-beloved ketogenic fat so many of us use known as MCT oil. This is why he created a company that makes what is arguably the best quality MCT oil on the market today called KetoMCT. As you will quickly hear when you listen to him today, Dr. Berger has a keen ability to analyze research data to generate clear, concise reports and presentations for lay, business, and scientific audiences and he has been a featured published expert on signaling and nutritional aspects of lipids, with a broad knowledge of whole body metabolism and current trends in nutrition research and product development. You’re gonna love this interview if you have any interest in MCT oil at all.

“The doctors for my Type 1 diabetic son said you have to let him eat whatever he wants because we don’t want to stress him out having to worry about (insulin) injections for his diabetes and his diet.” — Dr. Alvin Berger
