117: Could THIS be the ideal way to eat?

by | Oct 5, 2020 | 7 comments

Imagine reversing type 2 diabetes, stopping cancer in its tracks, and adding over a DECADE of healthy living to the average American’s lifespan.

Sounds almost too good to be true.

But as my guest today will explain, you can achieve all of these things with nothing more than FOOD.

Today, I’m joined by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. He’s a New York Times bestselling author, including his new book Eat for Life, and he’s an expert on nutrition and natural healing. 

On today’s episode, he and I are going to discuss the ONE proven way to increase longevity, why it’s actually better to SLOW your metabolism, and whether YOU should try the keto diet.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The one PROVEN way to increase longevity (and it’s NOT what you think) (3:45)
  • Why just 2.4% of Americans are doing THIS right — and why they’re living longer and healthier lives as a result (5:00)
  • How two-thirds of Americans are increasing their risk of death by 700% (9:45)
  • Why your salad should never include THESE oils (13:00)
  • The “anti-cancer” reason why you should STOP cooking your broccoli and start blending it instead (17:35)
  • Why doing THIS right before bed can actually cause you to age faster (20:15)
  • How to reduce inflammation just by cutting back on this one food (25:20)
  • What the carnivore diet has in common with eating Twinkies (29:30)
  • Why the keto diet may NOT be a good long-term health solution (34:45)
  • The one meal you may want to skip — and the one meal you can’t do without (37:30)
  • One type of vegetable you should add to EVERY salad (39:45)
