    Episode 337: Dr. Robert Lustig

    Episode 337: Dr. Robert Lustig

    Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. Robert Lustig is Professor of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Lustig has become a leading public health authority on the impact sugar has on fueling the diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome epidemics, and on addressing changes in the food environment to reverse these chronic diseases. He is also the author of many popular and influential books on the topics of nutrition and metabolic health (see links below). His qualifications, education, and full list of accomplishments are too extensive to list in their entirety here (see link below for his full bio).
    In this episode, Tro, Brian, and Rob talk about how Rob first discovered that fructose was so unhealthy, why suppressing insulin is key to metabolic health, why Western people in general are still opposed to or wary of the message that ‘sugar is bad’, why whole food diets are the ideal for human health, reasons why fiber in the diet is beneficial, why processed food may be a necessary evil in our modern food landscape and how we can make ultra-processed foods healthier in light of that possibility, the basic principles of making ultra-processed food healthier and what makes food healthy for humans in general, mitochondrial toxins (what they are, and where they come from), and the amygdala’s role in psychiatric disease.

    Episode 336: Dr. Paul Kolodzik

    Episode 336: Dr. Paul Kolodzik

    Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. Paul Kolodzik is a double board-certified emergency and metabolic-health physician with thirty years of experience. As a private-practice metabolic MD, Dr. Kolodzik has used continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) to help thousands of patients lose weight and prevent and reverse disease. In his first book, The Continuous Glucose Monitoring Revolution, Dr. Kolodzik presents a comprehensive program for metabolic-health success using CGM. He is also the Medical Director and Owner of Metabolic MD and is a founding member of the Society of Metabolic Health Physicians. In addition to holding a B.S. in Molecular Biology from Notre Dame and a Doctor of Medicine from Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, he has a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Dallas.
    In this episode, Tro and Paul talk about how the medical landscape and, specifically, the diabetes treatment landscape is changing, why CGMs are a huge part of this change in the landscape, why CGMs are so effective for weight-loss and diabetes reversal, how the changing landscape is a movement toward the democratization of health, whether the term ‘reversed’ is appropriate when speaking of diabetes and metabolic disease, a few key problems in the standard Western healthcare education model, and the benefits of smaller private medical practices that are owned by doctors.

    Episode 335: Grace Price

    Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Grace Price is an 18 year old who has spent the past two years chasing after a cure for cancer. This chase led her ultimately to write, edit, produce, and direct the documentary film, Cancer: A Food-Borne Illness. The film follows Grace across the country as she searches for the lifestyle factors that are putting people at high risk for cancer. It turns out that one of the best ways to prevent cancer is simple: avoid sugar.
    In this episode, Brian and Grace talk about how Grace first became interested in nutrition and cancer prevention, how AI can be implemented in educational settings for more efficient learning, the importance of keeping an open mind and staying unbiased in the pursuit of truth, how to effectively promote the message of good nutrition, processed food and mental health issues, Grace’s future plans with regard to cancer-prevention research and filmmaking.

Excellent podcast!

Be sure to check out Episode 335 with Grace Price! All of the episodes I have listened to have been phenomenal, but something about 335 hit different, as the kids say. Thank you Doctors for an amazing podcast! I am finally a follower. Time to catch up some episodes!

All

Thanks for the Laura interview, she sounded like soo many people I know. She is right people have to be ready to open their mind to the science, but once they do it , it gives us hope. The more we learn from these podcasts the more people will get help. You are doing the right thing.
