Description: Elle Russ chats with Jeff Scot Philips – a nutritionist, professional speaker, and the author of BIG FAT FOOD FRAUD. In his early twenties he founded the company Fit Food, a food delivery company that sold healthy meals to gyms, weight loss centers, and grocery stores. He then co-founded a food manufacturing business, producing and private labeling meals for other companies and brands. Topics discussed in this episode: ”Edutising”: how food companies disguise advertising as education, and why consumers shouldn’t trust anything they see in the news. How food companies turned gluten-free, among other trends, into a scam and why health food can be worse for people than junk food. The various ways food companies manipulate nutrition facts and ingredients, why they do it, and how to look out for it. Working with the USDA / FDA, and how lethargic, and sometimes harmful, they are (e.g. making food companies put sugar –breads, pastas, etc. — in frozen dinners), and how the FDA told Jeff that unless his food starts making people sick, they didn’t want to regulate him. Why the FDA’s new food labels (2018) will be even worse for consumers than they are now.
