Episode Highlights:

(07:21) Here you are trying to eat well, and you're choosing nourishing food, and your grocery bill is $150 or $200, and you're thinking "wow it's expensive to eat well" but it feels like that because all of that money is getting spent all at one time.

When you're just spending a little bit here and there on takeout food, it doesn't seem like all that much, but it's actually a lot. When you go to the grocery store and buy all your food all at once, it just SEEMS like a lot more, but it's actually a lot less.

(09:48) There are big savings to eating whole foods in terms of time and money spent trying to diagnose and treat diseases that are caused by processed food. For example, many people struggle with digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome and reflux disorder … These are a direct result of all the processed crap that we tend to eat. You just can't eat processed takeout food all the time and have a healthy digestive system.

(11:34) There's no question that insulin resistance and diabetes are caused by processed food. One of my colleagues told a group of Obesity Medicine specialists one time: “Let's call a spade a spade: diabetes is ‘processed food disease.’” So the truth is, a processed food diet may seem to be cheap and convenient, especially when you see these $1 or $3 menu items at McDonald's as an example, but it's actually a very expensive diet and it costs a lot in terms of what it does to our bodies and to our mental health.
