Australian anti-sugar advocate and author David Gillespie is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
As bad as the obesity epidemic has become here in the United States over the past few years, there's one other country in the world where we have met our match: Australia. In the land of kangaroos, meat on the barbie and no worries, there's actually great concern over the weight and health of the people of this great nation. And David Gillespie is on a one-man mission to help people get to the root cause of what is happening in their diets that's making them fat and sick.
David was featured in Episode 219 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" in January 2009 discussing his book Sweet Poison: Why Sugar Is Making Us Fat. Over the past few years he has been staying busy continuing to promote the dangers of consuming fructose, but also recognizes many of the sacred cows about nutrition being promoted by the food and diet industry are just plain wrong. Eat less, move more, cut your saturated fat consumption, eat more polyunsaturated vegetable oils, take loads of supplements--the list goes on and on.
He exposes the risks involved in living this way in his brand new book (not yet available in the US) called Big Fat Lies: How The Diet Industry Is Making You Sick, Fat & Poor. Listen in to today's podcast as Jimmy and David discuss what's wrong with the nutritional advice being given to consumers in Australia and America and what it's going to take to turn it all around.
