In Episode 686 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” my return to podcasting starts off with a bang as we welcome an outspoken and opinionated vegan physician and author named Dr. John McDougall. He has been promoting the gospel of starch-based eating for decades as he believes the historical evidence proves this is the diet man has evolved on while the addition of meat, dairy and oils are the primary reasons why obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic health issues of the day run rampant.
This was probably the most challenging interview I’ve ever done speaking with the author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good! because of Dr. McDougall’s unwillingness to engage in the healthy debate of ideas. Instead, this interview turned into a personal ambush against me attempting to mock my current weight and health. Somebody forgot to tell Dr. McDougall about my tremendous success doing a high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb nutritional ketosis n=1 experiment over the past year that has me at the lowest weight I have ever been in my adult life! It quickly became apparent that the facts are of little concern to him.
Considering I’ve interviewed other big-name vegan advocates before such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard, I fully intended to treat Dr. McDougall with the same respect and civility that I do with all of my invited podcast guests. That’s why it was disappointing when Dr. McDougall decided to turn hostile, shutting down any discussion that he didn’t want to engage in (i.e. he didn’t want to hear anything about the negative impact refined carbohydrates have played on the metabolic health of modern people) and personally lodging attacks against me. What I found most ironic was how he continued to cite me as an example of why people shouldn’t do low-carb, but then says I’m merely “a study of one” when I share how good my weight and health are. Too funny!
As you will quickly discover when you start listening, this episode will be an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells me you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! I guess I knew what I was getting myself into interviewing someone like Dr. John McDougall, but he certainly didn’t back away from his hard-nosed positions on what he believes is the proper diet and why high-fat, low-carb diets are so “dangerous” for people to follow. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!
