#70: Hack Your Thanksgiving

Hack Your Thanksgiving

This is episode 70 of Evil Sugar Radio. We’re covering a variety of topics in current events and listener questions. This week, we’re going to talk about biohacking, autoimmune diseases, and a couple of new documentaries about sugar.

A couple of weeks ago, we asked a question about the expert complex and had a great discussion. This week, we want you to give us your thoughts on this:

What is the #1 thing that annoys you online/social media regarding the fitness/diet industry? How can we (you and us) understand the problem better and provide better solutions?

    Thanks for your comments on weight loss “apps” diverting technology efforts from real human needs and problems. I have a dumbphone because I feel like smart phones are nothing but unnecessary distractions, so I don’t have access to most of these “apps.” I don’t think my health or quality of life are lacking for that…quite the opposite, actually. I can have a meal with a friend without staring at my phone the whole time. And I can work out and eat without staring at my phone, as well.

  2. Where is that calc you were talking about?

    Oh loved this show! It’s odd, I still AM a holistic health counselor and integrative health specialist but I LOVE you because I preach pretty much these same ideals. “I Quit Sugar” is one of my most HATED books ever! I tell my clients to EAT their ice cream if they want to heal their thyroid!! Love this podcast! Keep it up!
