The LLVLC Show (Episode 550): Jill Escher Tells Sugar Addicts To Say ‘Farewell, Club Permachub’


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

In Episode 550 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we welcome a sugar addiction awareness activist named Jill Escher who wrote a life-changing book entitled Farewell, Club Perma-Chub: A Sugar Addict’s Guide to Easy Weight Loss (which she gave me the great pleasure and privilege to write the foreword to).

Jill writes regularly about anything and everything related to the topic of sugar on “The Sugar Slayer Blog” as well as at her fabulous resource for the research and educational information about sugar and sugar addiction at EndSugarAddiction.com.

It didn’t take long for me to realize that Jill totally understands that sugar and refined carbohydrates are a big problem with obesity and chronic disease in the United States and that something desperately needs to be done about it sooner rather than later. That’s why she wrote her fantastic book and is passionate about everything she does which you will hear all about in today’s interview!

Listen to Jill Escher talk about overcoming sugar addiction:

  • How she “just happened into” nutrition and sugar addiction
  • She thought sugar cravings were just a normal part of life
  • Her friend who told her about Overeater’s Anonymous
  • The “transformative moment” when a man at OA shared his story
  • All the changes that happened to her when she cut sugar
  • Why she created the web site EndSugarAddiction.com
  • How she still eats “a little bit of sugar” now, but not much
  • What Paleo has taught her about proper nutrition
  • People are oblivious to the “drug” that sugar has become
  • The reason why sugar is so incredibly addictive
  • Combatting the “natural” claim about sugar
  • “Sugar Withdrawals Caused Man To Break Into Convenience Store”
  • Sugar is a “slow poison” that will destroy your health
  • Why it’s not the taste, it’s the “buzz” from eating sugar
  • The tapes that play in our head and messages pushed on us
  • Her disappointment with the American Heart Association on sugar
  • Pushing sugar for breakfast sets up for “the insulin roller coaster”
  • How having the term “diabetes” isn’t helpful to anyone
  • Why we should change it to “sugar and starch poisoning syndrome”
  • Her frustration watching The Dr. Oz Show on television
  • “Michelle Obama and USDA reveal new school lunch nutrition standards”
  • The lack of doctor understanding between sugar and disease
  • The clinicians and researchers she interviewed for her book
  • Sugar is culturally accepted because the damage isn’t immediate
  • Physicians “blame their patients” for lacking willpower and control
  • When people become responsible for their sugar addiction
  • Drew Carey lost weight on a low-carb, low-fat diet
  • Acknowledging addiction puts the onus on the individual
  • It’s a “myth” that weight loss is hard to accomplish
  • People fail on a low-carb/low-sugar diet when they don’t eat fat
  • Fat is the antidote to sugar addiction (Got cravings? Eat fat!)
  • Doctors need to start prescribing podcasts and not drugs
  • The “information deficit disorder” regarding nutritional info
  • Why she thinks I deserve an “honorary doctorate” for my work
  • Why she focused the title of her book on weight loss
  • She stopped weighing herself because “it freaks me out”
  • Her “happy fat” that is protecting her and will always be there
  • We still live in a culture that is so fat-obsessed and fat-phobic
  • How her doctor says she’s very healthy despite her high-fat diet
  • All of the proceeds from the book go to autism charities
