Posted Feb 27 2010 7:39pm

Sugar-shunner Dr. Nancy Appleton dishes on America’s #1 addiction

What could be wrong with something as literally “sweet” and allegedly innocent as sugar? I mean, sugar gives your body energy, tastes good, and gives people a euphoric feeling when consuming it, right? So what could be wrong with consuming this? Well, if you ask today’s podcast interview guest who has been studying the negative health effects of sugar for many decades now, she’d say continuing to eat sugary foods is quite literally committing “suicide.”

In Episode 337 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are so privileged to have the amazing Dr. Nancy Appleton with us to share about her shocking new book entitled Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction . For people who think nothing is wrong with eating sugar, this book will most definitely change your mind and could quite frankly change your life forever. Dr. Appleton is obviously very passionate about this topic as you will hear from her in today’s interview.

Hear her talk about her own personal health problems and frustrations with taking medications for various conditions, how simply removing sugar in her diet vastly improved her health almost immediately, why people are afraid of fat but not sugar, the recent change in nutritional policy regarding sugar at the American Heart Association, the startling rat studies of sugar, why starchy carbohydrates may not be bad when consumed with fat, the difference between glycemic index and glycemic load, 140+ reasons why sugar is ruining your health , the hard facts of soft drink consumption, the Third World influx of sugary soda pop, what sugar-infested foods people consume that they don’t ever realize, why food companies use grams to measure sugar in the foods, how HFCS invaded our food supply, why the sugars sold in health food stores are no better, the different terms for sugar, why agave nectar is horrible for you, the sugar deception in Ensure and Pediasure, what is wrong with maltodextrin, why companies lie about sugar in the products, what can parents do to keep their children from being addicted to sugar, the turning tide of health, why gastric bypass surgery is not the answer, what are healthy alternatives to sugar and why some people need to avoid all things that are “sweet” on the tongue, why fruit juice is just as bad for you as a sugary soda, some fantastic tips for being your sugar addiction, and whether you should give up sugar gradually or cold turkey. This one is chock full of outstanding information you WON’T want to miss.

Oh my gosh, you will NOT want to miss next week’s podcast interviews with two of the world’s leading voices on high-fat, low-carb nutrition. On Monday, we will at long last hear all about the brand new updated version of the Atkins diet called New Atkins for a New You: The Ultimate Diet for Shedding Weight Fast and Feeling Great Forever . As I shared in my review of this new book , it features three of the top researchers on carbohydrate-restricted diets, including Dr. Eric Westman from Duke University who will be my guest. We’ll also have a brief interview at the beginning of the podcast about a new study being conducted on probiotics that will be of interest to those of you who take this vital supplement. Then on Thursday, all the way from Sweden we’ll have the highly-respected cholesterol skeptic Dr. Uffe Ravnskov with us to discuss his provocatively-titled new book Fat And Cholesterol Are Good For You which should turn the heads of those people who still buy into the lie that these are somehow harmful to your health. Listen in to find out why they most decidedly are NOT! This will be one of my favorite weeks of interviews in all of 2010 and I hope you are able to listen to both.

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!”
