In this interview, Jason talks mostly about the ways that our current understanding of obesity, diabetes, fasting, and blood sugar are all a hindrance to actually getting healthier.
##In this interview, Jason talks about:
Why the current way of treating diabetes and related diseases is like pumping gas into the back seat of your car.
Why you need to GET RID of the excess sugar in your body, not just in your blood. It’s all about TOTAL sugar, not just blood sugar.
How eating more times per day can actually cause weight gain and contribute to disease.
Why fasting is one of the best things to add to a keto diet.
When you SHOULDN’T fast.
Diabetes is not a one-way street. You can completely reverse and cure it.
A story about Gino, who was diabetic, was told to exercise and diet, but wasn’t making any progress. Jason tells how Gino started treating the underlying hormonal issues, and as a result, he dropped weight, improved insulin sensitivity, and his diabetes went away.
How most medication and treatment of diabetes simply forces more sugar into your overloaded cells.
Why exercise is generally such a failure for both weight loss and treating illness.
Most of us put energy into our bodies for 18 hours a day and expend it for just 6 hours a day.
Insulin resistance is not just about sugar or carbs. In fact, insulin resistance is driven by a lot more than carbs.
One thing that can significantly increase your insulin sensitivity.
Why eating too many calories is more of an effect than a cause.
The problem and fallacy with the show The Biggest Loser.
How and why one guy fasted several times for 30 days (and why he loves doing it).
