Food marketing and misguided dietary guidelines play a large role in the food choices we make. These foods are frequently devoid of nutritional value and, even worse, they are addictive and keep you going back for more. Our bodies are built and maintained by what we put in our mouths; we literally are what we eat. Unfortunately, that means the majority of people in our country are made of ultra-processed food-like substances that create disease.
In today’s episode, I talk with Nina Teicholz, Michael Moss, and Vani Hari on the influence of food marketing and why the US government’s dietary guidelines may not be so healthy after all.
Nina Teicholz is a science journalist and author of the New York Times bestseller The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat, and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet, which upended the conventional wisdom on dietary fat—especially saturated fat—and spurred a new conversation about whether these fats in fact cause heart disease.
Michael Moss, a New York Times investigative reporter turned food-focused journalist, Pulitzer Prize winner for Explanatory Reporting, and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us, as well as the book Hooked: Food and Free Will, focused around food and addiction.
Vani Hari is the revolutionary food activist behind foodbabe.com, cofounder of organic food brand Truvani, New York Times best selling author of The Food Babe Way and Feeding You Lies. She has led campaigns against food giants like Kraft, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Subway, and General Mills that attracted more than 500,000 signatures and led to the removal of several controversial ingredients used by these companies.
