Forty years ago, most nutritionists agreed: fat — especially saturated fat — was the cause of coronary artery disease.

But despite decades of low-fat orthodoxy, people have only become more sick, more obese, and more diabetic. 

Well, my guest today will explain exactly why we lost our way and the nutritional research that proves why fat is NOT your enemy after all. 

Dr. Arthur Agatston is famous for creating the South Beach Diet and today he’s going to explain why his new keto-friendly version may be even MORE beneficial for your health.

He and I are going to discuss the pros and cons of keto, what’s REALLY raising blood sugar levels, and the TRUTH about fruit. 

We’re two “old timers” who are more than happy to talk about where we went wrong in the past and what the latest science says about the keto diet, nutrition, diabetes, and much, much more. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why high cholesterol may NOT be the best indicator of heart disease (and why low-fat diets DON’T work) (2:05)
  • How to burn fat more efficiently on a low-carb diet (and why it takes more than 2 weeks) (5:55)
  • Why THIS habit can raise your blood sugar and keep you from burning fat (7:00)
  • Three ways to bring down high blood sugar levels (and it’s easier than you think) (10:05)
  • How you can get the benefits of keto without following a strict high-fat diet (13:45)
  • The shocking consequence of removing fat from our food (and how it’s actually made us sicker and fatter) (16:25)
  • The #1 fat myth (and the “unhealthy” fat you should actually be eating MORE of) (19:35)
  • Why you should NEVER blame yourself for breaking a diet (23:30)
  • What we’ve gotten all wrong about fruit (and why it could be affecting YOUR health) (29:20)
  • Why it’s hard to be a healthy vegan (33:15)
  • The “heart healthy” oils that are actually like “experimenting with your health” (36:00)
  • The simple cure for keto flu (all you need is a teaspoon, a glass of water, and THIS) (37:30)
  • Why water fasting can actually be dangerous (44:15)
