So many people are finally waking up to all the deliberate marketing games that are being played with consumers at grocery stores to keep them purchasing highly inferior products to consume under the guise of them being healthy (whole grains anyone?). But there is still a lot of work left to be done to help educate unsuspecting consumers who are completely in the dark about the deliberately heavy marketing that is being done to them. That’s why we have a Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) brand and product strategist named Melody Pattison Mehta joining us today to share all about what is going on. She is committed to changing the way supermarkets are doing things now through an initiative outlined at ReinventingTheSupermarket.com.

Melody has long suffered through low-fat, low-calorie diets for many years as she has attempted to get her weight and health under control. That started her on a personal investigation into finding out why which eventually led her to the low-carb, high-fat nutritional approach along with periods of intermittent fasting that at long last ended the decades of frustration she had endured with conventional wisdom. Now Melody has taken her newfound knowledge about diet to what she does with branding to shine a light on the companies doing things well in order to help bring safe, nutritious, ethical and environmentally-friendly change to one the least healthy places in modern society–the supermarket. She is also working on creating The Conscious Shopping List which will be a list that eventually will be able to act as a guide to brands in your region to simplify the often difficult process of making a truly conscious choice. Listen in as Jimmy and Melody have this very important conversation about getting supermarkets up to speed on what consumers actually want in the health-conscious 21st Century.

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.
