Today is a very special episode as I welcome on the show the man who started it all and began teaching us all that sugar was the culprit to our health problems – Dr. Robert Lustig!

In this episode:

  • How he stumbled into realizing sugar was the root of our health epidemic
  • What does it mean to be healthy?
  • What is metabolic health and how to know if you’re metabolically healthy
  • Why ultra-processed food/sugar is NOT FOOD
  • The problem with seed oils and omega 6
  • Cholesterol explained
  • What we can do to create massive change in our food supply and health!
  • More!

Robert H. Lustig, M.D., M.S.L. is Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, and Member of the Institute for Health Policy Studies at UCSF. Dr. Lustig is a neuroendocrinologist, with expertise in metabolism, obesity, and nutrition. He is one of the leaders of the current “anti-sugar” movement that is changing the food industry. He has dedicated his retirement from clinical medicine to help to fix the food supply any way he can, to reduce human suffering and to salvage the environment. 

Dr. Lustig graduated from MIT in 1976, and received his M.D. from Cornell University Medical College in 1980. He also received his Masters of Studies in Law (MSL) degree at University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 2013. He is the author of the popular books Fat Chance (2012), The Hacking of the American Mind (2017), and Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine (2021). 

He is the Chief Science Officer of the non-profit Eat REAL, he is on the Advisory Boards of the UC Davis Innovation Institute for Food and Health, the Center for Humane Technology, Simplex Health, Levels Health, and ReadOut Health, and he is the Chief Medical Officer of BioLumen Technologies, Foogal, Perfact, and Kalin Health.
