Podcast Interviews

Can’t get enough of me?

If it’s been a while since I’ve published a new post, and you need an “Amy fix,” here’s a comprehensive list of all the podcast interviews I’ve done. Most of them focus on Alzheimer’s disease and my book, The Alzheimer’sAntidote. Others are about low-carb and ketogenic diets in general.


I have my own YouTube channel! My motto there is “Keto without the crazy.”
Click here for a list of all the videos. I cover all things keto, thyroid, insulin, salt, food police, fasting, macros, and more!

In January 2018, I recorded a webinar for the Irish Institute of Nutrition & Health.  It was a bit long -- about two hours, total, but it is the most detailed and informative presentation I’ve ever given.  You can download and save the file here (it’s a very large file), or simply watch it here.  There’s a Q&A for the last approximately 40 minutes. I recommend listening through to the end, because there's some good extra information during that time.

Other Videos

Keto Sense and Nonsense: about keeping low-carb and ketogenic diets simple.  Also a short video, about 25 minutes. (Related blog post: Newto Low Carb? Feeling Lost? “Paralysis by Analysis?” READ THIS.)

Intro to the Personal Fat Threshold Concept: It’s not about the weight! A look at why type 2 diabetes, hypertension, gout, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, PCOS, and other conditions occur in people of all body weights, not just in people who are overweight or obese. Also explains why people who are carrying extra weight sometimes have lower risk for cardiometabolic disease (“the obesity paradox”), as well as why people experience quick and dramatic improvements in type 2 diabetes after bariatric surgery or adopting a low carb/ketogenic diet – long before they’ve lost a substantial amount of weight.  

Videos about Alzheimer’s:

I have presented at several low carb and ketogenic conferences on Alzheimer’s as a metabolic condition – “type 3 diabetes – and the potential therapeutic use of ketogenic diets. Below are links to the videos of selected talks:

KetoCon 2018 – Austin, TX, June 2018
Low Carb Houston 2018 – Houston, TX, October 2018
Keto Salt Lake 2019 – Sandy, UT, April 2019
What I Learned – The Alzheimer's Antidote: Can we prevent Type 3 Diabetes? (An informative & in-depth interview on the metabolic aspects of Alzheimer’s. One of my best!)

Interview with Ivor Cummins (the Fat Emperor) about Alzheimer’s, hyperinsulinemia, insulin-related metabolic disease and more. Watch it here.

In November 2017, I recorded a short video about Alzheimer’s for the Adapt Your Life company. It was only about 21 minutes, so it just scratched the surface of Alzheimer’s as a metabolic illness -- “type 3 diabetes” -- but it’s a good basic intro for someone who wants a short overview.  Watch it here.

Interview with Mike Mutzel, from High Intensity Health, on Alzheimer’s disease and brain insulin resistance.  Lots of good stuff on the metabolic aspects of Alzheimer’s.  Watch it here.

Interview with Tristan Haggard, from Primal Edge Health.  We did some major keto myth-busting!  Lots of good stuff here. (Related blog post – “The Keto Train to CrazyTown.”) *Please note, this was one of the first videos I ever did, and I didn’t realize how dark my setting was.  So the aesthetics weren’t great, but stay for the content!

Interview with keto-oriented endurance cycling coach Stephanie Holbrook.  A brief discussion of Alzheimer's, and then we switched gears to talking about low carb and ketogenic diets in general, plus a lot of other issues I don't normally get asked about on podcasts, such as all the other stuff besides food that affects physical and mental health -- another fun one.  Watch it here.


I am linking directly to the show websites. However, most of these shows can be found on iTunes and other listening/download platforms.

Please note that some shows have long introductions with information and announcements from the host(s), sponsor ads, and witty banter or chit-chat. If you prefer to skip that, you might have to fast-forward a little bit in order to get to the start of the interviews.

I’ve tried to put the interviews I recall being especially informative and educational regarding Alzheimer’s near the top, but there are useful takeaways from all shows: 

Ketovangelist- episode 103: Amy Berger explains how keto can help with Alzheimer’s

Straight Up Paleo Podcast - episode 16: Differences Between Low Carb and Ketogenic Diets, and Why We Shouldn’t Fear Protein. (Note: this interview was not about Alzheimer’s. We covered a lot of fun and controversial issues about low carb & ketogenic diets, but we steered clear of Alzheimer’s here. This one was fun.)

The Paleo Solution Podcast - episode 287: “Nutrition and Alzheimer’s.” (Note: there was some static on my microphone during this show, so it might be difficult to bear with it and listen, but you can still hear me clearly.)

  1. Hi Amy,

    Just a quick note-I listen to Keto for women on a regular basis and I caught your episode recently. Since then, I've been seeking out other podcasts you've been on (really loved the woman you did on Keto Woman) because I love what you have to say and how REAL and level headed you are about keto. I just started a keto lifestyle about 2 months ago (though, I've been relatively low carb/no processed carbs for a while) and your message has been immensely helpful. Keto seems confusing in the beginning and we (especially women/type A women, like myself) tend to get hung up on the details, which causes a little over-analysis paralysis, but I've found people such as yourself have really helped it come together for me.

    Thank you!

    1. Fabulous! :D So glad I've been helpful. For a long time, I wondered what my role was in the low carb/keto community, or if I even *had* a role. Was I saying or doing anything a hundred other people weren't already saying and doing? Recently it occurred to me that yes, I do have a place here, and it's mostly helping people stay CALM about things, and to approach things rationally and with useful education. I've seen too many people become absolutely *neurotic* about food, macros, ketones, and other stuff, and I think a voice of reason and sanity is desperately needed. If that's the role I can fulfill, I think I'm comfortable with that, even if it means I don't have washboard abs and popping biceps like Maria Emmerich. ;-)
