We want to thank all the amazing Foster dads that gave us some of their time to enlighten and inform us about foster care and their journeys.

#044. Christopher Gardner, PhD: on the intersection of taste, health, environmental sustainability + social justice

Northstar Unplugged

Christopher Gardner is a nutrition scientist and Professor of Medicine. For 28 years at Stanford he has studied what to consume and to avoid for optimal health, and how best to motivate individuals to achieve healthy dietary behaviors. Some of the dozens of human nutrition intervention trials he has conducted include studies of garlic, omega-3 fats, soy phytoestrogens and antioxidants. Among his most cited studies are the A TO Z (2007) and the DIETFITS (2018) weight loss diet trials. His ongoing trials involve examining the impact of dietary changes (e.g., alternative meat, ketogenic diet) on the gut microbiome and inflammation/immune function. Current research interests include collaborating with chefs and dining operators as research partners in an effort to identify strategies to optimize the intersection of taste, health, environmental sustainability and social justice in institutional food settings (e.g., universities, hospitals, worksites). Professor Gardner teaches several food and nutrition classes at Stanford, including an on-line Nutrition Science course recently launched through the Stanford Center for Health Education.

1680: Digging Deeper Into The Major Flaws In Dr. Christopher Gardner’s Beyond Meat SWAP-MEAT Study

The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore

In Episode 1680 of Jimmy Rants on the LLVLC Show, we take an honest look at the SWAP-MEAT Study. “They even admit that they got skewed results due to the way they conducted the study.”  - Jimmy Moore A new study published in the August 11, 2020 edition of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition claims that consuming at least two servings of plant-based meat a day will lower your cardiovascular risk factors as compared with the same amount of red meat. The 16-week randomized crossover study funded by the Beyond Meat company was conducted by Stanford researcher Dr. Christopher Gardner and his team. ⁣ ⁣ But there are some major flaws in this study that I can’t let slip by. In this episode of JIMMY RANTS on The LLVLC Show, I pour over the study design and results of this research finding major flaws that bring into question why this ever got published to begin with.

SNR #223: Prof. Christopher Gardner - DIETFITS Trial 2018: Low-Fat vs Low-Carb Weight Loss Diets and Effect of Genotype and Insulin Secretion

Sigma Nutrition Radio

Prof. Gardner is the Director of Nutrition Studies at the Stanford Prevention Research Center and a professor of medicine at Stanford University. He received his PhD in Nutritional Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley in 1993. His postgraduate training included a postdoctoral fellowship in cardiovascular disease epidemiology at Stanford. Dr. Gardner is passionate about two central questions that keep him up at night and get him to jump out of bed most mornings. The first of these is: What can people eat and drink (or avoid/limit) to optimize their health? Dr. Gardner has recently shifted much of his energies to a second and more challenging question: What forces and factors can successfully motivate people to improve their food and beverage choice behaviors? Study Discussed: Gardner et al., 2018 – Effect of Low-Fat vs Low-Carbohydrate Diet on 12-Month Weight Loss in Overweight Adults and the Association With Genotype Pattern or Insulin Secretion: The DIETFITS Randomized Clinical Trial

1311: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Christopher Gardner Legitimizes Low-Carb Nutrition In Research

The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore

Associate professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center and diet researcher Dr. Christopher Gardner is our guest today in Episode 1311 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Landmark nutritional research was conducted by Dr. Christopher Gardner and published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association in March 2007 called A TO Z: A Comparative Weight Loss Study. In that study, this devout vegetarian advocate (for moral reasons) found that the Atkins low-carb diet produced more weight loss and better health improvements than the low-fat Ornish, moderate-carb Zone or standard American LEARN diet. This was obviously big news in the low-carb community at the time and Dr. Gardner went on the lecture circuit to discuss his study results, including a May 2008 lecture at the Stanford School of Medicine posted on YouTube called The Battle of the Diets: Is Anyone Winning (At Losing?). It’s been a few years since that historical JAMA study sent shock waves through the medical community. What’s been going on with Dr. Gardner’s continued research into this subject and how has his point of view changed regarding diet and health over the past five years? Listen in today as Jimmy has a rather candid conversation with this top nutritional researcher about the continuing ramifications resulting from his positive low-carb diet study.
