Professor of medicine and fructose obesity researcher Dr. Richard Johnson is our guest today in Episode 630 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
When Dr. Richard Johnson from the University of Colorado Denver first appeared in Episode 223 of the podcast in January 2009 discussing his book The Sugar Fix where he hypothesized that fructose alone was the root cause behind obesity and chronic disease, Jimmy challenged him about his theory during that interview encouraging him to examine the role of ALL carbohydrates on metabolic health. And so he did. Now Dr. Johnson is back to discuss his newfound support for low-carb nutrition in his brand new 2012 book entitled The Fat Switch published by the great online health advocate Dr. Joseph Mercola. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Johnson discuss what he found when he started researching how carbohydrates respond in the body, what led him to shift his views on the cause of obesity from fructose to all carbohydrates, and what it takes to turn on and off the "fat switch." This is a fantastic conversation you'll enjoy from one of the world's top obesity researchers.
