Life Without Sugar? Sweet (VIDEO)

“Hi Lisa, right before the quote you mention above, I said that 10 teaspoons was the USDA recommendation, just to give viewers a reference point. (I also alluded to the relationship between the sugar lobby and the USDA.)”

LisaLisa1234 on Nov 3, 2010 at 13:14:26

“Yes, I saw the part about the sugar lobby & I loved that you said it. :)

That's why it was just a quibble--semantics more than anything.

But I should have started with the statement that I really liked the video & what you're working toward. :)”

“Congrats and thank you for the comment.

I'm not sure what my current BMI is because I have not had it measured in awhile. That said, I've lost about 10 pounds since I went sugar free. (Most of it in the first 2 months). That was a super benefit, but I was careful when I started not to measure my success by weight. I wanted the other benefits even more (less inflammation, less energy/mood swings, etc).”

“Two weeks ago on the show's FB page, I posted how frustrated I was that at checkout, Walgreens' cashiers pitch you on adding M&Ms or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to your purchase. That is definitely one way to insure they will have life-long prescription drug users. I talked the local manager about it and he said it embarrassed him, but that the orders come down 'from above'.”

“Agreed. This also keeps farmers in a game they can never win. And, that corn is also used as feed for livestock...since they were not meant to eat corn (it burns a hole in their stomachs), they have to be pumped with antibiotics to stay upright. This affects not only the meat we eat, but the groundwater as well. Then we wonder why antibiotic resistance is so rampant. I thought the documentary "King Corn" did a great job of exposing this issue.”

“Joanna's description during our interview of the early charm factor was chilling. In particular, how attentively they 'listen' to you at first. It feels amazing. But you later realize, this attention was all about mining data to be used against you at a future time. (Finding your deepest insecurities, vulnerabilities, old boyfriends, etc).”

ColumbiaPatricia on Oct 6, 2010 at 12:21:56

“So true. It also makes it hard to start a new relationship. You wonder if he/she is being nice for real or mining information? I just give myself more time to know the person and yes, I do some background investigation. It certainly is complicated.”

“I actually address the male side in my monologue and Joanna and I do touch on it just a bit in her interview as well. You can listen to my monologue here:

And you are so right...it happens a lot to men as well. Unfortunately, I know too many guys in this situation which is why I felt the need to point it out on air. Thank you for your comment.”

“Bringing the abuse out of the shadows is crucial to recovery, IMO. Both sexes need to be willing to release the scourge of being in the abusive situtation. Talking about the experience with caring people or in therapy can help someone realize the most important thing is getting their spirit healthy again.
To me, the worst scenario is to go on being trapped in the situation, be it physically, mentally or both. In that case, the abuser always wins, because they still have control.
Thank you for bringing the interview with Joanna Hunter to HP-F&F.”

naschkatze on Oct 6, 2010 at 11:09:38

“While men are sometimes the victims of abuse, the physical disparities between men and women make me think the overwhelming number of abuse cases are male on female. I am an older woman, and hopefully things are not the same today, but we were always prodded by our mothers and other women to "find a man". Many women have been pushed into abusive relationships because of this thinking. Of course, we are talking about heterosexual relationships here, but I would imagine male on male, female on female abusive relationships exist too.”

“I recently interviewed Maria Rodale who argued that we can feed the planet, but ONLY by going organic. Conventional farming is destroying the soil. Her book is "Organic Manifesto" and is an excellent read. Here is the link to her interview: http://www.thekathleenshow.com/2010/05/14/maria-rodale/

“Thanks Marc. We're still recording at the old studio (very cool historic place where Nirvana and others recorded). But we're on borrowed time there...studio was supposed to close its doors a couple months back. I could use a little of your magic if we decide to build out our own place. When I'm in LA next, I'd love to record at your studio...”

“I've personally experienced your point in terms of selling out for practicality. And I've witnessed your point in those who went the creative route without using one ounce of common sense or care for self-sufficiency. Amen to daily attention...there is no 'now I'm there' with this stuff. On a separate note, I am seeing more and more that the answer partly lies in living simply. When you're not slave to the credit card companies and banks, you have more room for freedom and creativity and choice...while still being self-sufficient and responsible.”

“I remember when in Maui I visited Hana, a small rural unindustrialized, rainforest area. There were more retired CEO's then I have ever seen anywhere else, all bare foot with backpacks. They had completely been worn out from practicality, and didn't want anything else to do with it like ever again.”

“These are two super important points. For me, 'quitting' the things that are not central to my own element has been one of the most critical things I've done. I used to feel strangely obligated to take every speaking gig, every interview, every request that came my way. The more I started saying no or using a better filter, the more things started opening up for me. And I love your second point. Whatever we are doing, for whatever reason (financial or other), we should be doing our very best...with that will come a sense of pride and opportunity and confidence. (And creates less chance for major regrets.) This point is also beautifully made in the book "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz.”

“I like Dr. Martin's advice to just minimize exposure where we can. Since this interview, I have been much more consistent with using my headset and keeping my kids off the cell phone, etc. Also, the simple things like moving the radio alarm clock, etc. I'd rather know than not know the potential risks, but you're right...it's impossible to avoid them completely. EMFs are part of life right now.”

“Hey Travis, I wanted to get back to you regarding your comment on using a filter with your physician.

As I am sitting before them, I always remind myself that they are human (not Gods) basically making their best educated guess--which may or may not be accurate. I also constantly remind myself to think about the sources of their information/decisions...medical schools that don't focus on nutrition or a holistic approach, "evidence based medicine" in the form of studies and via medical journals bought and paid for by pharma and device advertising. This may sound cynical, but it's not. It's just a reality that I accept and fully consider before agreeing to treatment. From this vantage point, I feel like I can make an empowered decision.

I'd be curious to know what other people use for filters.”

“Clynton, I couldn't get your link to work. I tried a pair of the Vibram's on last weekend, but they did not have my size.

For the past month or so I have been walking around barefoot in my house and in my yard...it feels amazing (feeling the grass and earth again makes me feel like a kid). Previously, the older I got the more often I was wearing shoes (from the moment I stepped out of bed until I crawled back in at night.) I had somehow gotten the idea in my head that I needed to protect my aging feet.

I agree with you that it is super important to go slow. Right now I am running about a mile or two up on my toes (with shoes)...to start strengthening my feet.”

“You nailed it. I'm learning to tune in more...the answers are usually right under our noses. I find it interesting how much weight we (including me) put into a doctor's diagnosis when he/she only sees us for 5-10 minutes. Did you read Trisha Torrey's book called "You Bet Your Life? The Ten Mistakes Every Patient Makes"? Excellent book and speaks exactly to your comment.”

“Hey Lynn, I have been wrestling with this same clothes issue. The older I get the more I can see the folly of the fashion cycles...what was in 3 months ago is so out today. Things will change just enough with hemlines, etc to make you feel like what you're wearing is inadequate. Trying to keep up was costing me my future retirement and my sanity. I actually wrote a whole book chapter on this topic...(sitting in my desk drawer doing no damn good). And like you, I'm going to wear my running shoes until those stinkers are falling off my feet. Ha!”

“Travis, regarding marketing in a different way, I'm with you. But here's another thought...if produce a truly superior and meaningful product, you don’t need to market based on fear.

I saw this all the time in the pharmaceutical industry. The drugs with the biggest ad budgets were the "me too" products that just wanted to grab a piece of market share (anti-depressants, cholesterol drugs, etc). They needed lots of advertising (mostly fear based) because they added no real value to the marketplace. The few drugs that truly were a break through didn't need all the hype. Overall I think the problems surrounding marketing are directly related to the tremendous amounts of crap we are producing and then have to try to sell.

The game is changing a bit with social media…we as consumers have much more power to share the good stuff and ignore the rest.

More on the dr’s advice in a bit…”

“In the book, there was also a big message that we, as humans, are not here to judge. Which is exactly the opposite message I have received in church and from various evangelist friends. There is so much finger pointing in many of these religious communities...against gays, Harry Potter, Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama (I have received lectures and emails about the evil of each of these), that the overall message of love gets entirely lost. The Shack brings us back to the good stuff.”
