For episode 38, Dave and Mike are joined by Dr. Deirdre Tobias, an obesity and nutritional epidemiologist at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. She received her doctorate and postdoctoral training at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Her research focuses on the role of diet and lifestyle for obesity and its major chronic diseases, including gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes, and has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals including the New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of the American Medical Association. She contributes to the development and analyses of healthful dietary patterns, metabolomics, and nutrition epidemiologic methods, and is co-Instructor of Nutritional Epidemiology at the Harvard.. Dr. Tobias was appointed the Academic Editor for the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2019.

The discussion in today’s episode revolves around Dr. Tobias’ work as an epidemiologist. We discuss the difficulties that can arise in nutritional epidemiology, and what makes a good epidemiological study. From there, we discuss further how to appraise studies as a clinician. She also brings forth her wealth of knowledge on risk reduction and management for diabetes, her thoughts on the GI Index and other confounding variables, and the role of ultra-processed foods in diet induced weight gain. We finish the discussion by talking about physical activity as an intervention to reduce the risk of developing gestational diabetes in pregnant populations.
