Guest Bio: Vani Hari, "The Food Babe"
Named as one of the Most Influential People on the Internet by Time Magazine, Vani Hari is a food activist, New York Times best selling author of The Food Babe Way and co-founder of Truvani. For most of her life, Vani ate whatever she wanted - candy, soda, fast food, processed food - until her typical American diet landed her where that diet typically does, in a hospital. Despite her successful career in corporate consulting, Hari decided that health had to become a priority. Her newfound goal drove her to investigate what is really in our food, how it is grown and what chemicals are used in its production. The more she learned, the more she changed and the better she felt.

Encouraged by her friends and family, Hari started a blog called foodbabe.com in 2011. It quickly became a massive vehicle for change. Foodbabe.com has led campaigns against food giants like Kraft, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Subway and General Mills that attracted more than 500,000 signatures and led to the removal of several controversial ingredients used by these companies. Through corporate activism, petitions, and social media campaigns, Hari and her Food Babe Army have become one of the most powerful populist forces in the health and food industries. Her drive to change the food system inspired the creation of her new company called Truvani, where she produces real food without added chemicals, products without toxins, and labels without lies. Hari has been profiled in the New York Times and USA Today, and has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors and NPR. Vani lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband Finley and daughter Harley.

Feeding You Lies: How to Unravel the Food Industry's Playbook and Reclaim Your Health
All the contradictory information we receive in terms of diet and nutrition makes it almost impossible to know what we should (and should not) be eating.

Worse, just like the tobacco industry lied to us about the dangers of cigarettes, the same untruths, cover-ups, and deceptive practices are occurring in the food industry.

In her book, Feeding You Lies: How to Unravel the Food Industry's Playbook and Reclaim Your Health, Vani Hari, aka The Food Babe, blows the lid off the lies we've been fed about the food we eat--lies about its nutrient value, effects on our health, label information, and even the very science we base our food choices on.

A blueprint for living your life without preservatives, artificial sweeteners, additives, food dyes, or fillers, and guide to eating foods that truly nourish you and support your health, Feeding You Lies is the first step on a new path of truth in eating--and a journey to your best health ever.

Listen as Vani joins Dr. Friedman to share insights from the book and clear the confusion on what to eat.
