The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Sarah Wilson and Josh Clemente break down the impact of sugar in our diet and how to reduce our dependence on it.

“I don’t have the numbers off the top of my head, but it’s something like, we’re now eating 100 pounds of sugar per year, per person, and previously it was, I think, on the order of 1-3 pounds…it’s essentially two orders of magnitude higher now than it was 150 years ago,” says Josh Clemente, founder of Levels.


In this episode, we talk about the benefits of cutting down, or even completely cutting out sugar from our diet. In this episode you’ll learn about…

- Switching the mindset to “What we could eat,” and other ways to change mindset like treating it as an experiment
- Recalibrating your appetite
- How to improve metabolism and how your body responds to sugar
- Getting energy from healthy fats so we’re not reliant on glucose
- Listen to your body and make better choices from it
