In the second interview, we’ll hear from Lew Bender who is the CEO of a genetic testing company called Interleukin Genetics whose test is available from Inherent Health which uses DNA to figure out which diet and exercise plan is right for the individual. It’s an intriguing concept since so many of us who found low-carb were frustrated by the failure of the monolithic low-fat, low-calorie nutritional plans. But what happened when I took this test to see what it said would be the right diet and exercise plan for me? Hmmmm…tune in to find out!

Coming up on Thursday, I’ve got an unexpected treat to share with you. As you know, an interview with Gary Taubes aired on The Dr. Oz Show last week that put low-carb living in an unfavorable light. Dr. Oz used his bully pulpit and creative editing to try to put Gary in an unenviable position of explaining why he advocates for cutting carbohydrate consumption while increasing fat, especially saturated fat, intake for the sake of health. He shared with me that much of what he said had been cut out of the final version that aired and that he wishes there was a way he could set the record straight about what happened. I’m giving Gary that opportunity at the beginning of Thursday’s podcast so you can hear directly from the horse’s mouth exactly what happened, the mood of the audience, why he refused to take the cholesterol test on air, and so much more! If you were miffed about how that show made low-carb look, then you will DEFINITELY want to listen to this exclusive follow-up interview. Then we’ll have my scheduled interview with Ben Hewitt about his fascinating book The Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local Food detailing the story of how real food saved the small town of Hardwick, Vermont. This is one podcast you will NOT want to miss!
