378: Dr. Robert Lustig From ‘Sugar: The Bitter Truth’


Hello and welcome back to The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Today’s guest is the now infamous viral YouTube Internet sensation Dr. Robert Lustig–a neuroendocrinologist who originally declined to be interviewed for this show because he said he didn’t believe in the low-carb lifestyle. Dr. Lustig, professor of pediatrics at The University of California San Francisco and featured lecturer in the video “Sugar: The Bitter Truth, finally agreed to be interviewed on the subject of fructose as it relates to health and obesity and why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat. You’ll also discover why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to bank fat and be less active. Furthermore, his studies show that fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage.
