I recently did an interview with Registered Dietitian and author Brenda Davis…

In the interview we started talking about a study that she was a part of on the Marshall Islands.

The people of the Marshall Islands have been ravaged by diabetes. During the study, they put together an eating program for the native people and some amazing things happened.

You can listen in here…

Your question of the day: What is the weirdest thing you ever ate for breakfast?

He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    Fascinating interview. You’d have to have a pretty high blood sugar level for it to drop 100-200 points though. I didn’t even think it was possible for levels to get that high. I wonder what the levels are in the US.

    Cardboard pizza and Icecream. When I was a teanager we went to seminary in the morning before school and sometimes we would have activities. One was a breakfast event they serverds yucky cheep 8in mini pizza and ice cream. Teach good eating habbits wasn’t one of the lessons ;/

  3. Beth says:

    Frootloops with Pepsi instead of milk – we were camping, so I made do with what was available. It tasted way too sugary, but I ate it anyway. Ah, my teenage years 😉

  4. Tara Burner says:

    Oreganol I know a lot of people in the US who have diabetes and their blood sugar is in 300-500+ marks(most dr’s monitoring equipment only goes to 500 so many go ‘off the chart’ sadly) So, for them dropping 100-200 would be ideal!

    as far as weirdest food for breakfast…I can’t remember anything weird that I’ve had for breakfast… lol

    macaroni and cheese, with kabalsa.

    very inspiring interview. thank you for spreading the word.

    happy trails. =)

    Probably the weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten for breakfast is packaged cereal and pasteurized milk. I prefer green smoothies for breakfast now (seems strange to some, I know, but I really like them), along with plenty of healthy fat (2-3 tbs raw organic cashew or almond butter, or virgin coconut butter or oil). Keeps me satisfied and energized!

  7. Isabelle says:

    2 things that I simply cannot get my head around:
    1) that some people of this planet have no agricultural habits and don’t know how to grow or find their own food
    2) that some people of this planet have no cultural food habits…like Italian, French, Chinese, Thai or whatever cuisine – you would think that nourishing the body would be instinctual…
    How can anyone think eating doughnuts and coffee is nourishing?
    I just don’t get it!

  8. Sue says:

    I used to have things like baked bean sandwiches for breakfast.

  9. Marianne says:

    Fascinating. Brenda sounds like a truly lovely woman too…I actually already have her Becoming Vegan book on my shelf from years back, was a great help!!
    OH and THANK YOU Kev and Ann – I learnt sooooo much lately because…Dr Christiane Northrup’s book fell out the post last week, thank you immensely for the tip off it couldn’t have been better timed:-)))xxxx
    ps jacket potato with butter, black pepper and of course BROWN SAUCE mmm hehehe

    fermented stinky tofu 🙂 (when i was in china)

  11. Velda says:

    Very intersting interview …. thank you. My Dad has diabeties, but he will not change his eating life-style. Boggles the mind!! The weirdest thing I have ver had for breakfast? One time, I had some very good left-over potato salad. It look really good, so I put a little flour in it, put some butter in an iron skillet, and fried the potato salad. Actually, it was quite good 🙂

  12. Anne says:

    The weirdest thing I had for breakfast was this very sticky rice with pork fat in the middle of it which was served on the streets in Vietnam. I insisted on eating on the streets while I stayed for a month in Hanoi and ate some truly weird things and since I didn’t speak vietnamese I usually didn’t know what I was eating until I had it at least once.

    Another time someone showed me what looked like an egg (boiled) so I agreed to it and it was prepared in a bowl with some seasoning and when I chewed into it there were some hard crunchy bits and I found out that trung vit Long was actually fertilised duck egg embryo. A delicacy over there.

    I am so sad to hear about the Solomon Islands and their importation of the US’s throw-aways and high fructose corn syrup. Sadly these “trade-offs” are a part of doing trade deals with America. I live in New Zealand and we’re currently fighting with our own government who are negotiating a trade agreement with the US … and guess what: we have to ban stevia and are required to import HFC as part of our trade deal. As a beekeeper, I have also been saddened to hear that beekeepers in the US are feeding their bees with HFC. Is there anyone out there who has a modicum of intelligence – money-making machines are not going to cure the planet – we’re ending up with huge imbalances due to the greed of lobby groups and conglomerates. This is the new slavery/colonialism. Wakey wakey everybody!!

  14. Dee says:

    What happened to the video? I don’t get videos for any of the other downloaded episodes either.

  15. Tamikko says:

    fascinating interview guys. The weirdest thing I’ve eaten is probably left over dinner. However sugary cereals or those powdered donuts with the jelly in them in probably the worst.
    My mom would open a box and we’d all have 2 🙁
    Just disgusting!!!

  16. AmandaS says:

    Weird breakfasts:
    1) Cut up fruit only – that was super weird the first time after being used to ‘normal’ breakfasts.
    2) Making and eating my own natto (fermented cooked soy beans with a packet of premade natto in a thermos – so easy!)
    3) Small chunks of raw, defrosted, biodynamic liver (marinated in lemon juice for two hours to remove minimal toxins and for flavour, then cut up and frozen for 2 weeks to kill possible parasites). Vit B 12 me up!
    3) Once I tried raw really fresh fish

    Wow, I have progressively become weirder…

    I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 3 years ago, and have watched my blood sugar levels slowly increase. 8 days ago, I woke up to a blood sugar level of 278 mg/dl and realized something needed to change. I’d just watched the “30 Days Raw” documentary, so I went 100% raw that very day (O.K.–I did have one last cup of coffee). This morning, my blood sugar level was 126–a drop of over 150 mg/dl! I feel better than I’ve felt for 15 years, chronic eczema has cleared, no longer need reading glasses, and the continuous dizziness and the continued dizziness, drowsiness and lethargy I’ve felt for years is gone. I love the food I’m eating, haven’t been hungry and have lost 16 pounds. I’m so amazed at this change in just 8 days, and intend to keep it up. Even my wife and son are noticing a difference and are expressing an interest in eating more healthy meals.
