‘Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show’ Episode 329: Alan Watson Notes High-Fat, Low-Carb Combats The ‘Cereal Kil

Posted Jan 28 2010 3:50pm

Alan Watson says there are unintended consequences to low-fat diets

We all sincerely believe that the low-carb message is vitally important for the future of health in America and worldwide. And livin’ la vida low-carb is summarily dismissed as extreme, faddish, and for some unfathomable reason labeled as unhealthy. Meanwhile, millions of people are engaged in controlling their carbohydrate intake, losing weight, feeling fantastic, and getting healthier than they ever thought possible. Today’s podcast interview guest discovered for himself just how healthy low-carb diets really are after seeing the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in a debate with a famous low-fat diet guru.

In Episode 329 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Alan “Al” Watson, author of Cereal Killer as well as 21 Days to a Healthy Heart: Eat Your Way to Heart Health. He is a big believer in revealing the truth about the real dangers of consuming high-carb foods and their detrimental effect on obesity and disease. Now he is a very strong proponent of a high-fat, low-carb nutritional approach and sharing what he has learned with everyone he can.

Listen to Alan Watson share about his start in a nutritional supplement company, his fateful attendance of a debate between Dr. Atkins and a well-known low-fat diet expert, how his customers got him thinking about the healthiest diet, the folly of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines, the idiocy of promoting high-fructose corn syrup as “healthy,” the diabetes pandemic, why people still don’t get the connection between diet and health, the story of his letter to the editor and television show criticizing General Mills got censored, why cholesterol concerns are nonsense, why he wrote the new book to wake up the message more palatable, the low-carb conversion of Dr. Andrew Weil, a possible rally in Washington, DC to bring attention to low-carb science, the craziness of cutting dietary cholesterol, and whether he sees hope for the future of nutrition. It’s good to have someone like Alan Watson on the low-carb side because he is focused on spreading the word!

GOOD NEWS! For those of you who have been e-mailing me about accessing past podcast interviews, we are excited to let you know they are back online again. Shortly after our 200th episode in mid-2009, we had a complete server meltdown at our podcast web site and have since reposted most of our back episodes. But a few have still missing and some even lack the proper show notes. Due to popular public demand, we are now making available the audio of the episodes we haven’t yet had a chance to formally republish. This “Archive” section is where you can get them until we are able to republish these episodes. Once they are reposted, the audio link to the MP3 will be removed from the “Archive” page and become searchable via the search box near the top of each page. Thank you for all of your wonderful support of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show!”
