Dr. Kaayla Daniel: Soy Is NOT A Viable Health Food

Filed under: Health — @ August 3, 2010

In Episode 386 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from nutritionist Dr. Kaayla Daniel who promotes herself as “The Naughty Nutritionist” because she debunks many of the most common health myths that exist out there, including the claim that soy is a health food. She’s written a bestselling book on this subject called The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America’s Favorite Health Food to warn people about why eating soy-based foods is not the way to go. Listen to Dr. Daniel share about how she transitioned from a plant-based diet to an omnivorous eating plan thanks to the influence of The Weston A. Price Foundation, the growing new trend of high-fat nutrition education, why animal fat is so vilified, why a low-fat, high-carb diet is more about profit than health, the myths supporting vegetarianism and why they are so misguided and unhealthy, how a raw vegan is ruining their health, the influence of vegetarians like The China Study author Dr. T. Colin Campbell on the discussion regarding animal-based foods, the raw milk debate, why we should support the Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the curiously ironic story behind how she became involved with The Weston A. Price Foundation, how soy became considered a health food, the subtle way soy is being marketed now in light of the negative health consequences that have appeared in published studies, what foods containing soy are people completely unaware of, the response she’s received about The Whole Soy Story, what the deal is with her new moniker “The Naughty Nutritionist,” the infertility issues that are becoming more prominent, and the use of grain-based meats vs. plant-based foods.
