Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Low Carb Conversations Podcast Amber and Holly Jean chat with fitness and weight loss coach, Zane Griggs. Zane can be found on his website, as well as Instagram and YouTube. He is also author of the book Low Carb Lifestyle & Weight Loss Made Simple and has a popular podcast, Hunger Hunt Feast where he explores practical applications to achieving optimal health and work and life success.

In this episode we talk with Zane about the adverse health impacts of industrialized seed and vegetable oils, or what Zane labels the “Hateful Eight”. We learn so much about heavy chemical processing and oxidation that happens to these oil and how it impacts health. We continue our conversation by talking about the increase in high fructose corn syrup and fructose in the Standard American Diet and how it is leading to unprecedented rates of metabolic disorders, diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, heart disease, abnormal cholesterol, and high blood pressure. There are also a couple of very informative tangents about juicing and alcohol!
