Absolutely stunning podcast Jimmy !!

Have sent the links to my DH's office - he has been on the "heart healthy diet " for years now and I make no headway trying to discourage that ,being totally against his cardio's suggestions .
Maybe he will "hear " this wonderful interview .
I also have his book and found it just amazing .
Thanks so much !!!

I was impressed with the interview too Jimmy. His book just went into my cart on Amazon and I can't wait to read it. What an open-minded guy - he did a full 180 in his beliefs and then researched independently to confirm what he learned. I'm not sure I'll agree with his stress on green leafy vegetables but I'm open to considering his findings.

Yeah, I have a hard time with his 90% raw food diet, but I'm happy to hear his openness too. A lot of doctors could learn from this very wise man's example.

Really enjoyed this podcast. Jimmy, had you ever heard about the skin-tag connection to heart disease? We had never. Bill has heart condition and has been attended by 4 different cardiologists. They have never even mentioned anything about what they think he should or should not eat.
He is not overweight. But, when he has been hospitialized, they send up meals full of sugar and starch. He has talked to the nutritionalist and asked what are they doing? They don't get it.

It's good that Dr. Gundry is open to low-carb, especially considering that he is one of the countries leading cardiologists, but he stated several blanket statements as if they are facts that are really debatable. The fact that he made several blanket statements as facts, that are debatable makes it hard for me to really respect his nutrition theory.

For instance, that people can obtain enough protein from eating raw green leafy vegetables to build bones is a blanket statement. Raw leafy green vegetables are not complete proteins. If you are going to tell people that they can get all their protein from vegetable sources, then you need to talk about the need to eat a complimentary food: to make sure that their body receives all the essential amino acids.

Furthermore, I have issue with people supporting a raw vegan diet. I know that he recommends 10% animal/insect protein, but I wouldn't support a raw vegan diet without discussing the flaws in eating a raw vegan diet. I know that people can be on a healthy raw vegan diet. My cousin is. Yet, until he meet with a nutritionist, he was getting too thin. A raw vegan diet needs to be carefully monitored for complementary proteins and enough calories. Now my cousin is on a healthy raw diet. He eats a lot of cabbage, nuts and mushroom salads. In addition, it's easier for your body to obtain all the nutrients from cooked vegetables. I have to reduce the amount of magnesium I take if I cook my spinach and almonds. I'm short magnesium, but even I can't take a 1000mg if I've had cooked spinach and almonds.

In addition, I'm not sure about 80% cocoa and red wine being healthy. I'm not sure the evidence is in on those two. Cocoa and red wine are the new hot foods to recommend, but I haven't seen any long term or really large group studies that show that they are beneficial. Even 80% cocoa has a fair number of carbs. (I think 10 per serving.) The acid in red wine hurts my tummy. It would be great for weight loss. If I drank 2 glasses of red wine for breakfest, I'd be in too much pain to consume anything else for the rest of the day.

And Fiber. I think we've covered that issue enough on this web site. Yet, I will say eating unreal amounts of fiber for my IBS with constipation never stopped me from being hungry. At one point I was getting 300% of the RDA for fiber. I was still hungry. Only meat with some fat on it solves my hunger issues.

Dr. Gundry comes across as a low carb doctor that wants to distance himself from Dr. Atkins. Instead he aspires to be supported by the alternative medicine/organic product movement. I think this desire to be supported by the alternative medicine/organic product movement may bias some of his thinking.

The only thing I know for sure, is that carbs are bad. What our ancestors ate is debatable. We're not gorillas. We don't have the time to eat raw leafy green vegetables all day like a gorilla. And who knows, maybe our ancestors could have been a strong and powerful tribe like the Masai if they had more than 10% of their diet coming from animal/insect sources.

What I like about Dr. Gundry is that he is willing to go against the tide. The" Heart Healthy " diet of his peers. The one that espouses low fat, high carb. The fact that that diet is sooo unhealthy, packed with sugar, white flour and can lead to diabetes is well documented. And yet, most all the heart-treatment folks push this diet. Orange juice, oatmeal, bread, skim milk, cereal, A/S, low fat cheese, lean protein with no skin, no oils, etc. The Biggest Loser Diet.

I don't know about eating so much raw vegs either. I don't know if we need vegs or not. There seems to be one corner that says no vegs and another saying to eat lots of LC vegs. Some saying cooked vegs, some saying raw. Some saying heavy protein, some saying limited protein. Some saying you can't eat too much fat, others saying limit the fat. Some saying calories don't count, others say they do. Some eat frankenfoods, others don't. Some eat once per day, some eat all day long. Some eat fiber, some say no need for fiber.

We have more questions than answers. I am very interested in all opinions and studies.

What got my attention is the case study he mentioned of the patient who was too ill for surgery with all his arteries clogged. Then the patient started taking supplements and REVERSED his blockages. I want to know more about that.

Interesting podcast to say the least.

I had never heard the thing about skin tags before, Mona. And I have several on my body. EEEEK! But it was a great conversation starter for people to talk about health.

Traveler, I agree there were some areas of disagreement about what Dr. Gundry said. But he made some rather incredible statements and analogies during the interview.

While I didn't agree with all his statements especially - Atkins being just ok to start out with and his small amounts of animal protein/fats - high raw veggies, I was heartened at the blasting of the so called "heart healthy " diets so long implemented by the medical community .

I see it as a step in the right direction and maybe someday a cardiologist/ medical group will do a "study" .

I am hoping that my DH actually agree with Gundry's point of view to at least get him away from the dangerous "heart healthy " diet plan . A step in the right direction for him .

Unfortunately change comes very slowly - if at all .

I was very pleased to be able to listen to part 2 of the interview yesterday! I'm somewhat hesitant about the raw food thing as well but, what I want to ask is Does anyone know what he says about Atkin's in his book? If you read the Amazon reviews of his book, Dr. Gundry's Diet Evolution, a reviewer made the comment - "Thank You Dr. Gundry for clearing up the confusion about the Atkin's Diet. I was a follower of that diet for many years and have been battling my weight the whole time."

That peaked my interest.

I still have several skin tags on my body and it has me concerned in light of what Dr. Gundry said in my interview.

Danielle, I don't recall Dr. Gundry specifically naming the Atkins diet in his book, but I'll skim back through it again...in my interview he noted that he lost some weight, but gained it back on Atkins.

He was easy to listen to. Not so much a "know it all", but reflected his personal curiosity. That is a good doctor...one who continues to learn and is willing to change his way of thinking.

I don't think I would be satisfied eating that high a % of raw foods. I think the magnesium at night makes sense. We seem to suffer from lack of good quality sleep.

Women with PCOS often suffer from skin tags. And the root of PCOS is hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance so it makes sense.

Luckily I haven't had to deal with that symptom.

It's so true, Mona! I wish more doctors thought like Dr. Gundry with an open mind. I too couldn't do that much raw food...I'd go batty! I took my magnesium at night and it works like a charm.

What do you think about what Dr. Gundry had to say? Share your thoughts here.

Hi Jimmy...I bought the book on Friday after hearing pt 1 &2 of your interview. I've read through a lot of the book, and I think it is a good eating plan...but I am concerned about the fat content...it does not allow for any butter, coconut oil, mayo, etc...just olive oil, canola, flaxseed, etc. Also, the doctor says that "studies show that up to 50 percent of the weight loss on Atkins in the first six months is muscle, which is why you regain weight so rapidly after you stop dieting." Also, as you go through the 3 phases, you decrease the amount of animal protein...to rely mostly on vegetable protein...so after what I've learned from Dr.Atkins...that scares me. I sometimes think I read and listen to too many opinions...because I often end up not knowing what to eat at all...!

It's a matter of doing what's right for YOU and your body. It can get overwhelming hearing all this information, but I don't think we're meant to do EVERYTHING by EVERYBODY. Choose those one or two thoughts that impact you the most and do them. In the end, we'll all be healthier because of it.
