Highlights from this Episode

  • Jonathan starts out by answering the question “How did we get it so wrong for so long?” talking about the idea of calorie counting and the “Eat less, exercise more” philosophy
  • Jonathan explains a few of the analogies in his book that really drive home some of the major concepts that are fundamentally different than what most of us have been taught, like:
    • Our bodies are like a clogged drain
    • Sugar is basically the new cigarette
    • The SANE solution (which is his solution for helping us eat more and exercise less!)
  • Jonathan helps us understand why the concept of preaching moderation, especially in recommended guidelines is so wrong.  You wouldn’t suggest someone smoke in moderation, or simply smoke smaller cigarettes, would you?!
  • Jonathan shares with us the keys to eating smarter, SANE foods, and why they create a much more efficient environment in your body that will help you burn more fat, feel much better, and ultimately play a much better game of golf!
