Freelance magazine writer, columnist, and author Mark Schatzker is our guest today in Episode 976 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

What if we've been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy's 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this--flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.
