‘Bloggeranza Week’ Interview With Dave Dixon From ‘The Spark Of Reason’

Filed under: Health — @ April 9, 2010

It’s the second to last day of “Bloggeranza Week” and I’ll be sad to see it come to an end. But we’ll be coming back with “Bloggeranza Week 2″ in late June. More on that tomorrow. In the meantime, if you missed any of my previous interviews, be sure to listen to Matt Stone, Richard Nikoley, and Kelly The Kitchen Kop. In Episode 349 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are pleased to have with us Dave Dixon from “The Spark Of Reason” blog, a physics PhD who got so fed up with the politics of the research world that he turned to doing his own independent study of nutrition and health. That’s the reason why he writes about topics like saturated fat, low-carb diets, and their relationship to disease and health. Listen to Dave talk about the cognitive dissonance that has to happen when you go low-carb, why human condition has kept people from wanting to embrace the truth, the continuing impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories and his upcoming new consumer-friendly book, why “healthy whole grains” and “artery-clogging saturated fat” have become part of our nutritional lexicon, the role the Internet is playing and will continue to play in educating the next generation about healthy living, how a healthy body regulates its own metabolism to regulate health, why obesity isn’t about a lack of self-control but possibly could be an underlying physical problem, why weight and health issues are less about psychology and more about biology, how cigarette and carbohydrate addiction use exactly the same mechanism in the brain, why the majority of the population needs to be eating low-carb, the unmistakable relationship of a disturbed metabolism on health conditions like cancer, why his own doctor is one of the unhealthiest people he’s ever met, and what the common person can do to discern the truth.

Click here to hear how we got a little scientific in this interview, but Dave Dixon made it all fantastically easy-to-understand and embrace. ENJOY!
