Vani Hari The Food Babe Shares Dirt That the Food Industry Doesn’t Want You To Know (& Book Giveaway)

Vani Hari The Food Babe

Did you know that food companies have additives in their food to make them more addictive and to make you feel less full, all while ruining your health?

And did you know that the United States (in particular) still uses ingredients that Europe and the European Union banned several decades ago for health reasons?

Today I bring on a special guest: Vani Hari, The Food Babe, to talk to us about how the food industry manipulates us, and what we can do about it.

Vani has been featured in virtually every major news outlet, including The New York Times, Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, USA Today, and CNN.

She also has a book that was JUST released today called The Food Babe Way – which is all about avoiding food toxins making you sick and gain weight, and the critical health habits to regain your health.

AND I’ll be giving away two copies of the book, contest details below the interview video.

  3. I actually saw this book on Amazon for pre-order a few days ago and added it to my wish list. I’m aware that the European equivalent of our FDA have put so many restrictions on what goes into their food. I respect that they have a high quality of living and am shocked with what companies are allowed to do to the food we eat here in our country. I’m not in the best of health and its not fair that people who are trying to eat healthy (or not) still have to suffer the effects of chemicals that are damaging our bodies. I want this book to reference what toxins are going into our bodies. I want to know what foods are safe and what aren’t. I love eating organic and to truly know whats going into your body, its best to grow your own garden but I do not have a green thumb so educating myself is the next best thing!

    1. Love it Kelly- and I agree. We honestly don’t know the long term effects of some food additives, while others have been well studied.

      1. Wow, this is amazing information. For the most part I stay away from most processed foods, as well as fast food. This presentation has made me think of how I may be adding poisons to my body when I do eat some of these “easy” foods. Thanks for this post!

  4. “Why do you really want this book and how are you hoping it’ll help you live a healthier, better life?”

    Why? I’m scared…actually, I’m terrified. I want to be empowered, not scared. I have Fibromyalgia; a rare version of Psoriatic Arthritis; and Spondyloarthropathy. I have serious endocrine issues; my blood pressure is rising and no doctor has yet to determine why. I keep getting put on more and more medications. I want to solve most of my problems as naturally as possible, not fill my body with more and more drugs. No matter what I do or try, my health just keeps getting worse; I keep losing more and more hope. My journey has also been made more difficult by being on a financial Job-esque disaster/emergency rollercoaster for 15+ months now. One example: 4 dog surgeries in 13 months. I need an angel right now. I need a guide. I need a gift. I need hope. Thank you for considering me. Thank you for sharing this book with us.

  5. I have been trying to get pregnant for a while and while waiting for it to happen, I have been researching healthy habits, especially in eating. I never had trouble with my weight and I feel this has made me very unaware of food and exercise issues. Moving to the US (from Bulgaria, which is now in the EU) has also made me see a big difference in friends’ health – some conditions improve, others worsen after moving here. This all makes me very curious as to what effect food, exercise, and other lifestyle habits have on a person’s health and overall well-being. I believe this book is a good source of information on this quest 🙂

  6. Great interview! Love Vani’s down to earth, real life attitude, courage and drive. I am passionate about health and have a constant desire to learn more. The food industry is one area where I haven’t done much digging and I can see I have a lot to learn. Just like you, Vani is big on accountability. She reminds us that ultimately we have control about what we choose to eat. I look forward to reading her book and learning more about the food industries “tricks”, food additives, chemicals and ingredients in the foods I eat. That interview alone leaves me wanting to cook more and eat out less! Thanks for sharing it with us.

    1. Hi Jasmine !

      “The food industry is one area where I haven’t done much digging and I can see I have a lot to learn” You’re right, and to be honest, me too! It’s a little be surprising (and quite scary).

  7. This video interview was inspirational and empowering. I meant to only skim through it after I parked my car at the gym, but found Vani’s story so down-to-earth and interesting, I listened to the whole interview on my phone, finishing most of it as I walked to my yoga class.

    I am a mom of twin 6 year olds and face the issues of fast food/convenience – as it inevitably impacts my kids at school (i.e.: school breakfast program, snack food sales and the LAUSD school system meals or other kids sharing chips, etc). Even though my kids eat mostly my least processed, heart-healthy, home-prepared meals/snacks. They have sampled from the “dark side” and I have to admit there or things they quite like (i.e. gold fish crackers for one). lol!

    I don’t even know how to begin to tackle the food system that supports meals for the schools. Everything is processed, packaged food which is reheated if necessary (so no real kitchen), bananas are often green, and the apples are red delicious – the untasty ones – and there are always highly processed chips, cookies or coffee cakes. I cringe at all the junk, chemicals, sodium and excess of sugars.

    So while I know this book may help others more than I, I really admire what Vani is doing. I would love to place her book on my shelf next to those of my fellow dietitian/nutritionists, not only for my own inspiration, but also as an example to recommend to my clients.

      Lauren – I feel your frustration here. My dad was a chef at a school and he was very into health – and constantly complained about the complete and utter crap the schools would feed their kids. Chicken nuggets and ice cream. And they wondered why kids can’t concentrate and why we have a childhood diabetes epidemic?

  8. Ineed this book so that i can teach myself and others around of the things that are hidden from us and to know the damages we do to our body by having these things

  9. I bought this book after seeing your post. Even though I knew the “evils” of processed food, I didn’t realize the full extent, and sometimes allowed myself something like Chik-Fil-A since I rarely go there. Boy, I don’t even want to eat this “food” occasionally anymore. This book has helped with that determination. I was driving into work one morning, and thought about getting my crew some snacks from Starbucks. I was in the parking lot, and remembered what Vani said about pretty much any processed food, and decided it wasn’t worth it and left. I’m so glad I did and I felt so much better for not getting that junk food (even if it was for my co-workers). Great book! I hope it’s a turning point for the food industry in this country.
