LCC (Episode 47): Dr. Joe Leonardi And Tara Grant Dig Into The Disconnect Between Medical Care And Chronic Disease


NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 47 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” we have an awesome line-up for you today with two more fabulous friends. It’s a pleasure to welcome a couple of amazing weight loss success stories in chiropractor Dr. Joe Leonardi from “Fat Then Fit Now” (listen to my interview with him in Episode 252 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show”) and stay-at-home-mom Tara Grant from the “Primal Girl” blog! I enjoyed being away at the Nutrition & Metabolism Society Symposium in Denver last week, but wanted to sneak one more episode into the schedule before taking off the month of May for the Low-Carb Cruise and just some time off (five days a week of podcasting since the beginning of the year is relentless). And we’re still missing our co-host Mindy Noxon Iannotti who should be better by the time we come back with brand new episodes beginning in June. But we’ve got a great show to share with you today featuring commentary from Joe and Tara on whether high-fructose corn syrup is really bad for you or not (this isn’t a trick question), what role sugary soda plays in the obesity epidemic, an honest discussion of the disconnect between medical care and common chronic diseases, and a surprising call for cutting carbs in school lunches happening in Australia. It’s a fantastic episode with some yummy recipes (including a Cauliflower Pizza Crust from Tara) at the end. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk.

Listen to Dr. Joe Leonardi and Tara Grant share with us today:

  • Joe’s transformation on a low-carb diet
  • His recent emphasis more on fitness and motivational speaking
  • Tara’s focus on “eating properly” started on low-carb in 2002
  • She switched to Paleo because of the food quality improvements
  • Her fitness is when she “dead lifts” her children
  • The TV appearance she had about Paleo in San Francisco
  • “Is High Fructose Corn Syrup Really Bad for You?”
  • Agribusiness has a lot of green ($$$) that influences the culture
  • Joe’s video: High Fructose Corn Syrup Is Bad
  • At the end of the day, it’s sugar and it’s not good for us
  • Take a bite of baker’s chocolate and you’ll see how sugar influences
  • The taste of chocolate can change as you get off of sugar
  • Peggy Emch’s column on fructose malabsorption
  • “Sugary soda increases risky fat deposits”
  • This is “common sense” to us, but not necessarily to general public
  • Energy drinks have trumped sodas as one of the worst beverages
  • The new Pepsi Next beverage with less HFCS, but still high in HFCS
  • Artificial sweeteners can also wreak havoc on weight control
  • “The Disconnect or why modern medicine not effectively treating chronic disease”
  • Doctors just don’t see the nutritional component in disease
  • Treating symptoms rather than getting to the root of the problem
  • Why Dr. Joe has changed his practice to treat his patients better
  • “Call for kids to curb carbs with their school lunches”
  • We need some “thunder from down under” to influence us
  • The military has to use the U.S. Dietary Guidelines
  • Tara’s blog post about military base childcare school lunches
  • All the organizations impacted by the Dietary Guidelines
  • Tara said she told them her child is allergic to wheat and dairy
  • All things are political and that includes nutrition and health
  • The size difference in organics and Agribusiness apples are stark
  • Joe’s Chicken Artichoke Spinach recipe
  • Tara’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe
