Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR THAT SUGAR FILM

That Sugar Film – Official Trailer
Ever since Dr. Robert Lustig’s famous Sugar: The Bitter Truth hit YouTube in 2009 going viral with nearly 6 million views, a bright light has been shining on the detrimental role sugar is playing in most chronic health problems people deal with today. For an Australian actor and filmmaker named Damon Gameau, who gave up sugar to impress his girlfriend, he knew the time was right to do something dramatic to illustrate just how deeply entrenched sugar has become in our food supply–even the so-called “healthy” foods. That’s when he decided to go on a 60-day sugar diet using these health foods to create a highly-entertaining, hilarious, and eye-opening documentary called That Sugar Film which has already become the all-time highest-grossing documentary in Australia just months after it released. The film made it’s momentous American debut in U.S. theaters on July 31, 2015.

Listen in as Jimmy and Damon share about how he thought of the audience as he was making this film, how he got interested in being involved in nutrition using his acting/filmmaking skills, how his girlfriend got him to greatly reduce his sugar intake and the health benefits that gave him, why he wanted to do a 60-day sugar experiment to cut through the noise of both sides of the sugar debate, the humor and playfulness that was infused perfectly into this film, why he didn’t do the multiple, rapid-fire expert after expert in the film, why they stayed away from sensationalists in the film, how the sugar companies need to be held more responsible for their health claims, how the film has gotten people to throw away most of their pantry, the high sugar content of the “healthy” foods people consume, how we’ll someday see the advertisements using famous people pushing sugar as odd like we do cigarettes today, his visit to America and how easy it was to get plenty of sugar in his diet, the disgusting marketing of fruit juice, why cutting sugar isn’t just about weight loss, how the word “organic” has lost all meaning, how eating real food is the best way to avoid these sugars, how his partner got concerned with his health towards the end of the 60-day period, how going back to his healthy diet turned his health back around again after his sugar experiment, the difficulty in changing back to healthy again, why this matters for the children who are our future, how the growing awareness of the negative effects of sugar is getting people to give it up, The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation charity his film is supporting, and the kid in Kentucky who rotted all his teeth drinking Mountain Dew.

964: Dr. Richard Jacoby Examines The Role Of Sugar In Permanent Nerve Damage

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

That Sugar Film – Official Trailer
Ever since Dr. Robert Lustig’s famous Sugar: The Bitter Truth hit YouTube in 2009 going viral with nearly 6 million views, a bright light has been shining on the detrimental role sugar is playing in most chronic health problems people deal with today. For an Australian actor and filmmaker named Damon Gameau, who gave up sugar to impress his girlfriend, he knew the time was right to do something dramatic to illustrate just how deeply entrenched sugar has become in our food supply–even the so-called “healthy” foods. That’s when he decided to go on a 60-day sugar diet using these health foods to create a highly-entertaining, hilarious, and eye-opening documentary called That Sugar Film which has already become the all-time highest-grossing documentary in Australia just months after it released. The film made it’s momentous American debut in U.S. theaters on July 31, 2015.

Listen in as Jimmy and Damon share about how he thought of the audience as he was making this film, how he got interested in being involved in nutrition using his acting/filmmaking skills, how his girlfriend got him to greatly reduce his sugar intake and the health benefits that gave him, why he wanted to do a 60-day sugar experiment to cut through the noise of both sides of the sugar debate, the humor and playfulness that was infused perfectly into this film, why he didn’t do the multiple, rapid-fire expert after expert in the film, why they stayed away from sensationalists in the film, how the sugar companies need to be held more responsible for their health claims, how the film has gotten people to throw away most of their pantry, the high sugar content of the “healthy” foods people consume, how we’ll someday see the advertisements using famous people pushing sugar as odd like we do cigarettes today, his visit to America and how easy it was to get plenty of sugar in his diet, the disgusting marketing of fruit juice, why cutting sugar isn’t just about weight loss, how the word “organic” has lost all meaning, how eating real food is the best way to avoid these sugars, how his partner got concerned with his health towards the end of the 60-day period, how going back to his healthy diet turned his health back around again after his sugar experiment, the difficulty in changing back to healthy again, why this matters for the children who are our future, how the growing awareness of the negative effects of sugar is getting people to give it up, The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation charity his film is supporting, and the kid in Kentucky who rotted all his teeth drinking Mountain Dew.

964: Dr. Richard Jacoby Examines The Role Of Sugar In Permanent Nerve Damage

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health.

Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge.

964: Dr. Richard Jacoby Examines The Role Of Sugar In Permanent Nerve Damage

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR THAT SUGAR FILM

That Sugar Film – Official Trailer
Ever since Dr. Robert Lustig’s famous Sugar: The Bitter Truth hit YouTube in 2009 going viral with nearly 6 million views, a bright light has been shining on the detrimental role sugar is playing in most chronic health problems people deal with today. For an Australian actor and filmmaker named Damon Gameau, who gave up sugar to impress his girlfriend, he knew the time was right to do something dramatic to illustrate just how deeply entrenched sugar has become in our food supply–even the so-called “healthy” foods. That’s when he decided to go on a 60-day sugar diet using these health foods to create a highly-entertaining, hilarious, and eye-opening documentary called That Sugar Film which has already become the all-time highest-grossing documentary in Australia just months after it released. The film made it’s momentous American debut in U.S. theaters on July 31, 2015.

THE HILARIOUS THAT SUGAR SONG MUSIC VIDEO

That Sugar Song – Official Music Video

Listen in as Jimmy and Damon share about how he thought of the audience as he was making this film, how he got interested in being involved in nutrition using his acting/filmmaking skills, how his girlfriend got him to greatly reduce his sugar intake and the health benefits that gave him, why he wanted to do a 60-day sugar experiment to cut through the noise of both sides of the sugar debate, the humor and playfulness that was infused perfectly into this film, why he didn’t do the multiple, rapid-fire expert after expert in the film, why they stayed away from sensationalists in the film, how the sugar companies need to be held more responsible for their health claims, how the film has gotten people to throw away most of their pantry, the high sugar content of the “healthy” foods people consume, how we’ll someday see the advertisements using famous people pushing sugar as odd like we do cigarettes today, his visit to America and how easy it was to get plenty of sugar in his diet, the disgusting marketing of fruit juice, why cutting sugar isn’t just about weight loss, how the word “organic” has lost all meaning, how eating real food is the best way to avoid these sugars, how his partner got concerned with his health towards the end of the 60-day period, how going back to his healthy diet turned his health back around again after his sugar experiment, the difficulty in changing back to healthy again, why this matters for the children who are our future, how the growing awareness of the negative effects of sugar is getting people to give it up, The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation charity his film is supporting, and the kid in Kentucky who rotted all his teeth drinking Mountain Dew.

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR THAT SUGAR FILM

That Sugar Film – Official Trailer
Ever since Dr. Robert Lustig’s famous Sugar: The Bitter Truth hit YouTube in 2009 going viral with nearly 6 million views, a bright light has been shining on the detrimental role sugar is playing in most chronic health problems people deal with today. For an Australian actor and filmmaker named Damon Gameau, who gave up sugar to impress his girlfriend, he knew the time was right to do something dramatic to illustrate just how deeply entrenched sugar has become in our food supply–even the so-called “healthy” foods. That’s when he decided to go on a 60-day sugar diet using these health foods to create a highly-entertaining, hilarious, and eye-opening documentary called That Sugar Film which has already become the all-time highest-grossing documentary in Australia just months after it released. The film made it’s momentous American debut in U.S. theaters on July 31, 2015.

THE HILARIOUS THAT SUGAR SONG MUSIC VIDEO

That Sugar Song – Official Music Video

Listen in as Jimmy and Damon share about how he thought of the audience as he was making this film, how he got interested in being involved in nutrition using his acting/filmmaking skills, how his girlfriend got him to greatly reduce his sugar intake and the health benefits that gave him, why he wanted to do a 60-day sugar experiment to cut through the noise of both sides of the sugar debate, the humor and playfulness that was infused perfectly into this film, why he didn’t do the multiple, rapid-fire expert after expert in the film, why they stayed away from sensationalists in the film, how the sugar companies need to be held more responsible for their health claims, how the film has gotten people to throw away most of their pantry, the high sugar content of the “healthy” foods people consume, how we’ll someday see the advertisements using famous people pushing sugar as odd like we do cigarettes today, his visit to America and how easy it was to get plenty of sugar in his diet, the disgusting marketing of fruit juice, why cutting sugar isn’t just about weight loss, how the word “organic” has lost all meaning, how eating real food is the best way to avoid these sugars, how his partner got concerned with his health towards the end of the 60-day period, how going back to his healthy diet turned his health back around again after his sugar experiment, the difficulty in changing back to healthy again, why this matters for the children who are our future, how the growing awareness of the negative effects of sugar is getting people to give it up, The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation charity his film is supporting, and the kid in Kentucky who rotted all his teeth drinking Mountain Dew.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR THAT SUGAR FILM

That Sugar Film – Official Trailer
Ever since Dr. Robert Lustig’s famous Sugar: The Bitter Truth hit YouTube in 2009 going viral with nearly 6 million views, a bright light has been shining on the detrimental role sugar is playing in most chronic health problems people deal with today. For an Australian actor and filmmaker named Damon Gameau, who gave up sugar to impress his girlfriend, he knew the time was right to do something dramatic to illustrate just how deeply entrenched sugar has become in our food supply–even the so-called “healthy” foods. That’s when he decided to go on a 60-day sugar diet using these health foods to create a highly-entertaining, hilarious, and eye-opening documentary called That Sugar Film which has already become the all-time highest-grossing documentary in Australia just months after it released. The film made it’s momentous American debut in U.S. theaters on July 31, 2015.

THE HILARIOUS THAT SUGAR SONG MUSIC VIDEO

That Sugar Song – Official Music Video

Listen in as Jimmy and Damon share about how he thought of the audience as he was making this film, how he got interested in being involved in nutrition using his acting/filmmaking skills, how his girlfriend got him to greatly reduce his sugar intake and the health benefits that gave him, why he wanted to do a 60-day sugar experiment to cut through the noise of both sides of the sugar debate, the humor and playfulness that was infused perfectly into this film, why he didn’t do the multiple, rapid-fire expert after expert in the film, why they stayed away from sensationalists in the film, how the sugar companies need to be held more responsible for their health claims, how the film has gotten people to throw away most of their pantry, the high sugar content of the “healthy” foods people consume, how we’ll someday see the advertisements using famous people pushing sugar as odd like we do cigarettes today, his visit to America and how easy it was to get plenty of sugar in his diet, the disgusting marketing of fruit juice, why cutting sugar isn’t just about weight loss, how the word “organic” has lost all meaning, how eating real food is the best way to avoid these sugars, how his partner got concerned with his health towards the end of the 60-day period, how going back to his healthy diet turned his health back around again after his sugar experiment, the difficulty in changing back to healthy again, why this matters for the children who are our future, how the growing awareness of the negative effects of sugar is getting people to give it up, The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation charity his film is supporting, and the kid in Kentucky who rotted all his teeth drinking Mountain Dew.

OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR THAT SUGAR FILM

That Sugar Film – Official Trailer
Ever since Dr. Robert Lustig’s famous Sugar: The Bitter Truth hit YouTube in 2009 going viral with nearly 6 million views, a bright light has been shining on the detrimental role sugar is playing in most chronic health problems people deal with today. For an Australian actor and filmmaker named Damon Gameau, who gave up sugar to impress his girlfriend, he knew the time was right to do something dramatic to illustrate just how deeply entrenched sugar has become in our food supply–even the so-called “healthy” foods. That’s when he decided to go on a 60-day sugar diet using these health foods to create a highly-entertaining, hilarious, and eye-opening documentary called That Sugar Film which has already become the all-time highest-grossing documentary in Australia just months after it released. The film made it’s momentous American debut in U.S. theaters on July 31, 2015.

Listen in as Jimmy and Damon share about how he thought of the audience as he was making this film, how he got interested in being involved in nutrition using his acting/filmmaking skills, how his girlfriend got him to greatly reduce his sugar intake and the health benefits that gave him, why he wanted to do a 60-day sugar experiment to cut through the noise of both sides of the sugar debate, the humor and playfulness that was infused perfectly into this film, why he didn’t do the multiple, rapid-fire expert after expert in the film, why they stayed away from sensationalists in the film, how the sugar companies need to be held more responsible for their health claims, how the film has gotten people to throw away most of their pantry, the high sugar content of the “healthy” foods people consume, how we’ll someday see the advertisements using famous people pushing sugar as odd like we do cigarettes today, his visit to America and how easy it was to get plenty of sugar in his diet, the disgusting marketing of fruit juice, why cutting sugar isn’t just about weight loss, how the word “organic” has lost all meaning, how eating real food is the best way to avoid these sugars, how his partner got concerned with his health towards the end of the 60-day period, how going back to his healthy diet turned his health back around again after his sugar experiment, the difficulty in changing back to healthy again, why this matters for the children who are our future, how the growing awareness of the negative effects of sugar is getting people to give it up, The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation charity his film is supporting, and the kid in Kentucky who rotted all his teeth drinking Mountain Dew.

964: Dr. Richard Jacoby Examines The Role Of Sugar In Permanent Nerve Damage

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 7.18.24 AM

Peripheral nerve surgeon and author Dr. Richard Jacoby is our guest today in Episode 964 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health.

That’s when he decided to go on a 60-day sugar diet using these health foods to create a highly-entertaining, hilarious, and eye-opening documentary called That Sugar Film which has already become the all-time highest-grossing documentary in Australia just months after it released. The film made it’s momentous American debut in U.S. theaters on July 31, 2015.

Listen in as Jimmy and Damon share about how he thought of the audience as he was making this film, how he got interested in being involved in nutrition using his acting/filmmaking skills, how his girlfriend got him to greatly reduce his sugar intake and the health benefits that gave him, why he wanted to do a 60-day sugar experiment to cut through the noise of both sides of the sugar debate, the humor and playfulness that was infused perfectly into this film, why he didn’t do the multiple, rapid-fire expert after expert in the film, why they stayed away from sensationalists in the film, how the sugar companies need to be held more responsible for their health claims, how the film has gotten people to throw away most of their pantry, the high sugar content of the “healthy” foods people consume, how we’ll someday see the advertisements using famous people pushing sugar as odd like we do cigarettes today, his visit to America and how easy it was to get plenty of sugar in his diet, the disgusting marketing of fruit juice, why cutting sugar isn’t just about weight loss, how the word “organic” has lost all meaning, how eating real food is the best way to avoid these sugars, how his partner got concerned with his health towards the end of the 60-day period, how going back to his healthy diet turned his health back around again after his sugar experiment, the difficulty in changing back to healthy again, why this matters for the children who are our future, how the growing awareness of the negative effects of sugar is getting people to give it up, The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation charity his film is supporting, and the kid in Kentucky who rotted all his teeth drinking Mountain Dew.

964: Dr. Richard Jacoby Examines The Role Of Sugar In Permanent Nerve Damage

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.
