3 Question Interview with Dr. William Davis

On October 18, 2022, CarbSmart’s Dana Carpender interviewed William Davis, MD for her “3 Questions with” series.

Dr William Davis is a prolific writer and expert health care professional. He is the New York Times #1 bestselling author of the Wheat Belly series including his latest book, Super Gut. He is known for his advocating of some basic principles of nutrition and efforts to address common nutrient deficiencies caused by the consumption of wheat products and the disruption of the human microbiome.

Dr. Davis spent an informative hour talking with CarbSmart’s managing editor Dana Carpender. Read Dana’s review of Wheat Belly and Super Gut.

Question 1

If people were unsure about the effects of a particular food on their blood sugar, they should take their blood sugar measurement an hour after eating it, and if their blood glucose was over 120 mg/dL they should never eat that food again. Is that still your feeling or have you modified that in any way?

Question 2:

You have long advocated a low-carbohydrate diet but have said you’re against a keto diet, at least as currently practiced. Since I have been in a mild state of ketosis for most of the past twenty-seven years, I’m curious as to why.

Question 3:

Do you have any idea what the carb count of the Super Gut yogurt recipe you discuss in your Super Gut book is?

Bonus Question 4:

Do you know of a particular species of bacteria that increases levels of dopamine?
