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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

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.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!
