Cardiologist Dr. Rob Thompson Encourages ‘Low Glycemic Load Diet’ To Control Obesity, Heart Disease And Diabetes

Filed under: Health,Publications — @ May 4, 2010

Obesity, heart disease, and diabetes have been on the rise for the past few decades with seemingly no end in sight. It should be obvious to anyone with a brain that whatever we are doing differently now than we did before this astronomical rise began in the 1970s should be corrected immediately. And maybe, just maybe the answer to this issue that baffles the so-called health “experts” and government health agencies could be what we have added into our diet when we pushed for the removal of fat from our diet. Today’s podcast interview guest knows abundantly well why these diseases of modern man exist and has come up with a simple, yet effective solution to correct them.

In Episode 357 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from cardiologist Dr. Rob Thompson, bestselling author of the books The Glycemic Load Diet and the accompanying The Glycemic Load Diet Cookbook with Dana Carpender. His latest release is The Low-Starch Diabetes Solution: Six Steps to Optimal Control of Your Adult-Onset (Type 2) Diabetes that was inspired by Dr. Thompson’s sudden personal diabetes diagnosis.

Listen to him share why dietary fat and cholesterol being a culprit in heart disease has become a joke among his cardiologist colleagues, why high cholesterol is entirely genetic and has nothing to do with your diet, why he supports the use of statin drugs, the difference between glycemic index and glycemic load, how the addition of grains to our food supply introduced more starch to our diets, how grains have added 100 times more glucose from starch than prehistoric man, why glycemic load is all but ignored, why carbohydrates are so heavily promoted (HINT: cha-ching!), why he believes most Americans can easily afford fresh, non-starchy foods, how the glycemic load works in practical application, why the glycemic load of beer is so difficult to measure, why red meat is not the problem with heart disease, obesity and diabetes, the statistics of how cholesterol and fat consumption have dropped while starch has dramatically increased, why dietary fat doesn’t go up when you begin eating low-carb, why portion control is unnecessary on low-carb, his concerns over the sustainability of the Atkins diet, how a lack of activity has contributed to obesity and diabetes, why he wrote a book on the subject of diabetes, his support for the use of Metformin for preventing and treating diabetes, the importance of LDL particle size as the preferred method for measuring cholesterol, how vinegar and walnuts can inhibit starch absorption, why not drinking any liquid with meals can slow the amount of starch your body absorbs, why walking two miles is just as effective as running two miles, how diabetes damages your body through the blood vessels, why blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes all act together to destroy your health, and his highly controversial position on the role of sugar in the diet.
