by | Oct 19, 2020 | 0 comments

Giving up your favorite food is HARD!

So just imagine what it’s like to try quitting your favorite foods — while still cooking them in your restaurant every day.

Well, that’s exactly what happened to my guest today, star chef Seamus Mullen

Over 10 years ago, Seamus was diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis that made it almost impossible to work without medication. But after dramatically changing his diet and lifestyle, Seamus is now almost completely free of RA. 

On today’s episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast, Seamus and I will talk about his incredible health transformation, the tricks he learned to get healthy and stay healthy, and the best way to ask for a substitution at your favorite restaurant. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How you can actually “catch” an autoimmune disease (7:30)
  • What LeBron James can teach YOU about nutrition (9:15)
  • Why feeling uncomfortable after eating is NOT normal (10:45)
  • How medicinal side effects can sometimes be WORSE than the disease (17:00)
  • Why the first step to getting better… is simply giving yourself THIS advice (21:10)
  • My number one rule for deciding what food to eat (26:30)
  • Why pasta in Italy is easier to digest than pasta at home (it’s NOT what you think) (28:45)
  • The biggest reason why it’s so hard for chefs to stay healthy (30:30)
  • How to ask for a restaurant substitution (advice from a pro chef) (32:15)
  • Why THIS common oral hygiene product could actually be raising your blood pressure (34:30)
