807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We continue on with the great lectures from the recent 2013 Low Carb Down Under Seminar Series that took place in Melbourne, Australia in November 2013 featuring compelling presentations from many of the leading voices on the subject of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diets in the South Pacific. With gratitude to Dr. Rod Tayler (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him in Episode 578) for granting exclusive access to these invaluable talks, we are excited to be sharing these with you to kick off the new year the right way. Jimmy and Christine are so excited that they’ll be returning to Australia and New Zealand later this year for the 2014 Low Carb Down Under Tour–check LowCarbDownUnder.com.au in the coming months for full details.

Here’s the air date schedule (with links to ones already aired):

Today’s featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with “healthy” whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here’s the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:

Then you’ll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.

Today’s featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with “healthy” whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here’s the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:

Then you’ll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

With gratitude to Dr. Rod Tayler (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him in Episode 578) for granting exclusive access to these invaluable talks, we are excited to be sharing these with you to kick off the new year the right way. Jimmy and Christine are so excited that they’ll be returning to Australia and New Zealand later this year for the 2014 Low Carb Down Under Tour–check LowCarbDownUnder.com.au in the coming months for full details.

Today’s featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with “healthy” whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here’s the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:

Then you’ll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community.

He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

Today’s featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with “healthy” whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here’s the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:

Then you’ll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more.

He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

Jimmy and Christine are so excited that they’ll be returning to Australia and New Zealand later this year for the 2014 Low Carb Down Under Tour–check LowCarbDownUnder.com.au in the coming months for full details.

Today’s featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with “healthy” whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here’s the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:

Then you’ll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

With gratitude to Dr. Rod Tayler (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him in Episode 578) for granting exclusive access to these invaluable talks, we are excited to be sharing these with you to kick off the new year the right way. Jimmy and Christine are so excited that they’ll be returning to Australia and New Zealand later this year for the 2014 Low Carb Down Under Tour–check LowCarbDownUnder.com.au in the coming months for full details.

Today’s featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with “healthy” whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here’s the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:

Then you’ll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We continue on with the great lectures from the recent 2013 Low Carb Down Under Seminar Series that took place in Melbourne, Australia in November 2013 featuring compelling presentations from many of the leading voices on the subject of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diets in the South Pacific. With gratitude to Dr. Rod Tayler (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him in Episode 578) for granting exclusive access to these invaluable talks, we are excited to be sharing these with you to kick off the new year the right way. Jimmy and Christine are so excited that they’ll be returning to Australia and New Zealand later this year for the 2014 Low Carb Down Under Tour–check LowCarbDownUnder.com.au in the coming months for full details.

Here’s the air date schedule (with links to ones already aired):

EPISODE 761: David Gillespie on 1-2-14
EPISODE 762: Damon Gameau and Dr. Gary Fettke on 1-3-14

Today’s featured lectures are with Dr. Troy Stapleton, a 42-year old radiologist who learned in October 2012 that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and he started the standard diabetic dietary recommendations (low-fat diet with “healthy” whole grain intake) for two months after his diagnosis. After that failed him, he did some extensive research and switched over to a very low-carbohydrate diet in December 2012 with remarkable success. Listen to hear his personal journey and the science behind the LCHF approach. Here’s the video footage of this presentation from the 2013 Low-Carb Down Under Seminar Series:

Then you’ll hear from Dr. Zeeshan Arain, a Melbourne-based General Practitioner and current team doctor for the Melbourne Demons AFL team. His initial interest in nutrition and metabolism began several years ago when he was increasingly frustrated at being overweight despite eating a low-fat diet and exercising regularly. He has become a staunch advocator of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition in the prevention of disease, weight loss and optimum quality of life. His presentation shares about his experience using nutritional ketosis with a variety of health benefits including weight loss, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 9.25.05 PM

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.
