Dr. Gundry answers helpful questions from his viewers about diet and health. In today's episode, Dr. Gundry answers the question: "What is the Impact of Sugar and Olive Oil"

Chances are you could benefit from incorporating more olive oil into your diet. Not only is it delicious and versatile, but it can go a long way in supporting your health.
Turns out, a rather large batch of research suggests that the traditional dietary habits of those living in and around the Mediterranean (where olive oil is a main food staple) experience fewer incidences of chronic health concerns. So, does this gap in wellness have anything to do with olive oil consumption? Time will tell. Now is the time to ask how olive oil might be able to support your overall health, specifically, the health of your arteries.

    Dear Dr. Gundry.. your voice is sooo soothing and calming to listen to, while you try to teach us how to be healthy! Thank you for always looking out for us!!

  • Lita Collazzo says:

    I consume lots of olive oil everyday, but I have also heard that avocado oil is very good for you. Can you elaborate more on avocado oil, and possibly give a comparison of the two of them? thank you

  • Rowan Adler says:

    Thanks Dr G, and don’t forget the other question about cooking with Olive oil which you mentioned (in another interview you did) isn’t as evil as once thought, based on the fact that the oxidation level is different to the smoke point. Thanks as always!!! Rowan

  • Roberto Peraza says:

    One thing Americans got wrong about how we Mediterranean consume olive oil is that actually we use as daily basis regular refined olive oil for cooking, deep frying and just virgin olive oil when its served on salads or any other food that doesn’t require cooking. So yes we got x2 bottles at home and no, we don’t only consume virgin olive oil, it’s a cost effective thing. Virgin olive oil is not a cheap thing.

  • Dimitris starantzis says:

    What about the prickly pear fruit ? (it is fruit of a cactus)
    Here in Greece it can be found in the summer in the super markets. It seems to have very little sugar and seeds like the passion fruit.

  • Amazing Philippines says:

    Interesting. Walnuts and extra virgin oil olive oil are a big part of my diet also.

  • Nikos Stamatiou says:

    Thank you for all the work you do.
    I’m Greek and I eat around 5lt of olive oil a month, probably a bit less in winter. I don’t eat grain and eat close to zero sugar for years. If you see my salad you’ll think I use the vegetables to eat my oil, rather than use the oil to eat my vegetables. I also don’t eat meat for the last 40 years, but I never gave up fish, I eat fish or seafood an average of 1,5 times a week. I’m 59, I remember I got an antibiotic one time in 1995 (Ospen, for tensils’ infection, streptococus) that’s that. Blood pressure doctors think is low (10-6.5) because they envy it.

  • Anna Sue Slowliving mom says:

    This is great to know. I have started consuming lots of olive oil since I got on an Italian kick. Now, I have been putting it into my Cajun food since I’m a Cajun girl lol. I am loving it. Lots and lots of it! My daughter is most likely going to be named Giada, and if you know you know lollllll.

  • Joe says:

    That’s hilarious. I chop up hard boiled eggs and drown them in olive oil making a soup. It’s delicious and I always assumed someone else in the world knew about this tasty meal
