KEVIN: After we go to the grocery store, and we see all these low fats, no fats, web carb, every thing that you just simply mentioned, , what is the coverage?

PHOENIX: Oh, steer clear of them. Avoid as a result of… this is the factor once more. Yeah, it isn’t, which I am so stunned that there is a lot of them nonetheless on the cabinets. I am such… I am simply nonetheless so fascinated once I go to the grocery retailer to see what they’re perpetuating on the trusting shopper. And so many customers, with all due respect, they do not have the time to do what I did to analysis some stuff. They wish to belief what the meals producers are telling them. So, they placed on the label, “It is fat-free.” For many who imagine it is … fats, then they are going to seize it. They usually’re in all probability going to eat it in extra as a result of they suppose, “Effectively, it is no fats.” And it is the identical factor with the web carb and influence carb. It is all BS, if I could say.

KEVIN: Yeah, certain.

PHOENIX: As a result of something that has disclaimed that, there may be some type of label trickery behind it. I inform my purchasers, “Look, do they ever put that on a pleasant tomato or a pleasant piece of fruit?” No. As a result of their aim is, on these meals, is to actually, I imply, how does the meals enterprise keep in enterprise? They do it by promoting their meals. And the way they ensure they promote it and make us a loyal devoted buyer? They’d should get us addicted. And the way do they get us addicted? By hiding sugar and below every kind of names. So, for these meals, once more, it isn’t about consuming good wholesome fats. I am not speaking about trans fat that you just discover within the processed potato chips and crackers and stuff like that. I am speaking about good wholesome fats. So, it’s about consuming these good wholesome fat and staying away from all of the misleading labeling that comes below the low fats, , web carb and influence carb merchandise.

One other fantasy. I talked about it in nice element within the ebook, that’s, it’s important to eat good, wholesome fats, and with good wholesome fats comes good wholesome ldl cholesterol. So, eggs, the entire eggs.

PHOENIX: However another wholesome fat are olive oil, additional virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, flaxseed oil, nuts and seeds, unsalted please with none of these smoked, , and salty issues. Avocados, natural mayonnaise, recent white cheeses, your mozzarella, feta and goat. These are all great good wholesome fats. And naturally, in your fishes, , like salmon and issues like that you will have the well being, I have a look at it extra as a protein supply, however you additionally get good sources of fats in that as effectively.

KEVIN: A-ha. What about fish oils and flaxseed oils, are these good as effectively?

PHOENIX: Completely, on your Omega-Three and the 6’s and issues like that, I like to recommend, , in my ebook I do give a listing of, I do chapters of, only one chapter of wonderful low GI carbohydrates.

PHOENIX: After which a listing of meals that anyone would discover in my home on any given day and that may be a listing of all sorts of whether or not good wholesome fat, low GI carbs, totally different meals for, totally different fish on your Omega-Three’s and issues like that. So… I’ve had many individuals who say, “Oh, you’ll want to write a recipe ebook.” However it was extra essential for me to provide the instruments to folks to show them how t to suppose for themselves as a result of that may take you a lifetime versus, who lives off a cookbook? I imply, it isn’t going to occur.

KEVIN: Yeah. May you give us a snapshot of a few of the issues which can be in your own home proper now?

PHOENIX: Oh, certain. I simply … hey now, no, it is … This morning, I had three eggs with mozzarella cheese…

KEVIN: A-ha.

PHOENIX: I all the time have, I’ve about two dozen eggs, I am going by way of about two dozen eggs every week they usually’re a fantastic snack as effectively for individuals who say, “Oh, I do not know what I am going to have for snack.” Boil some eggs, they make for a fantastic snack.

KEVIN: A-ha.

PHOENIX: I’ve some uncooked almonds, I make my very own path combine, I normally have an assortment of almonds, macadamias, walnuts, I combine these collectively and make my very own path combine.

KEVIN: Oh, nice.

PHOENIX: I’ve recent whipping cream that I put in my decaf inexperienced tea, which I’ve sitting proper right here topped with a little bit cinnamon, completely great, higher than any latte.

KEVIN: So, recent whipped cream, you imply, simply straight from the farm, or…

PHOENIX: Sure. Recent whipped cream which, , not the spray cream, however the recent, actual, entire whipping cream.

KEVIN: A-ha.

PHOENIX: And why? As a result of it is, regardless that I attempt to restrict my consumption of any cow merchandise, it’s a good wholesome supply of fats and it has zero carbs which suggests zero sugar. So…

KEVIN: Bought you.

PHOENIX: …it isn’t concerning the fat-free milk or the skimmed milk which, once more, is a carb and as a liquid carb, it’ll have an effect on your blood sugar stage much more dramatically. So for me, it is entire whipping cream.

KEVIN: And will you clarify that a little bit extra? I believe lots of people do not realize…

PHOENIX: The liquid carb?

KEVIN: …that milk, dairy, lactose is a sugar and that there are carbs.

PHOENIX: Effectively, no, precisely, Kevin, and the factor is 2 similar to the fruit. After I inform folks, “Oh”, I imply, the fruit juice, they go, “Oh, you are telling us that it isn’t wholesome?” I mentioned, “No, no, no. It is the way you devour these carbs.” As a result of fruit has fructose, which is fruit sugar.

KEVIN: A-ha.

PHOENIX: Milk has lactose, which is milk sugar. And so, when you have got, not solely is it a carb, however because the fruit juice and the milk, you should have a liquid carb. And as a liquid carb, you’ll have an effect on the blood sugar stage far more dramatically. Why? As a result of it is nothing greater than liquid. It’ll go a lot faster into the bloodstream. It has nothing, the physique would not should take time to interrupt it down.

KEVIN: A-ha.

PHOENIX: So, which is why I like to recommend, after all, I need you to eat fruit. There are higher fruits than others and mine, once I’m actually working with purchasers who’ve an extra insulin gauge which is the place that weight you carry round your midsection which is probably the most dangerous to your well being, it’s about your decrease GI fruits, which, for me, the berries. I extremely advocate any of the berries. However once more, eat them of their pure state. Do not take them in a juice type. One solely has to take a look at any bottle. If you go into the grocery retailer, Kevin, you may choose up any bottle, have a look at all of the fruit juices which can be marketed, simply learn the panel. Take a look at how a lot sugar is in there and have a look at what number of servings are in there. There may be typically wonderful, at the very least thirty, if not sixty to eighty grams of sugar in a type of juice merchandise. So once more, it is about taking your carbs of their pure type. The fruits and issues like that, in order that the physique has its means to interrupt down the fiber which is able to assist decrease the blood sugar responses going to be brought on by it.

KEVIN: So, these juices, whenever you have a look at them within the grocery retailer that say one hundred percent juice?
