Nature Wants You To Be Fat with Richard Johnson

Here’s a question for you – why do we get fat? As Americans we’ve gotten heavier over the past century, and disease rates have skyrocketed. There have been many theories: We’re eating too much fat. Too many carbs. An excess of sugar. Is it our lifestyle or our diet that’s to blame?

Or could there be a single common cause that explains the sharp increase in not only obesity, but conditions as disparate as heart
disease, cancer, and dementia? My guest today reveals the surprising science behind why we gain weight and how we can prevent – and reverse – it.

My guest today is Dr. Richard Johnson. Dr. Johnson is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado and is a clinician, educator, and researcher. For more than 20 years, he has led research on the cause of obesity and diabetes, with especial interest in the role of sugar (especially fructose). His research has been highly cited, published in top medical journals, and supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health. He is the author of The Sugar Fix and The Fat Switch. His latest work is a book titled: Nature Wants Us To Be Fat and contains state-of-the art discoveries on the cause of obesity potential cures.

Join us today as Dr. Johnson takes us on the fascinating journey of research and discovery as he explains why nature wants us to be fat, as well as how we can prevent – and reverse – obesity.
