226: Surprising foods that flip your “fat switch”
When it comes to “why” and “how” losing weight can be so darn hard most people have more questions than answers.
So I brought on a very special guest, who’s been on the cutting edge of obesity research for more than a decade.
He’s Dr. Richard Johnson, physician, clinical scientist, and author of the book “Nature Wants Us To Be Fat – The Surprising Science Behind Why We Gain Weight and How We Can Prevent and Reverse It”.
Dr. Johnson explains why we believe the solution to obesity is as simple as “flipping a switch”. We also break down exactly how and WHY certain foods trigger weight gain, and how YOU can turn your body into a fat burning machine.
On this episode you’ll learn:
- The REAL reason most people struggle to lose fat (nature doesn’t want you to! (9:00)
- The foods that activate your body’s “fat-storing switch” to turn your body into a fat-burning machine (and the foods to stay away from) (10:15)
- Why most people struggle to turn off their “fat-switch” – and how it’s contributing to major health issues (this goes WAY beyond obesity) (16:35)
- Why sugar alone is not the main culprit behind weight gain – and the surprising diet that can actually accelerate the storage of fat (20:55)
- The popular “kiddie drink” that can completely DEPLETE your energy levels (it’s even worse than soda) (35:39)
- Why THIS is more important than calorie counting when it comes to weight loss (39:45)
- Why high-carb diets are making you HUNGRY(and why starch is just as bad as sugar) (42:25)
