30:58 - During his trial and error with different diets, what did he learn? When he observed a stagnation in the new diet he would start “revenge” eating. Weight loss goals are achieved when you are happy and respect yourself, not when you reach the weight the books are telling you.
Eating in “windows,” and eating what you enjoy. Apoptosis is dying cells; we’re taking those old cells away.

Different qualities in food, how can it nourish us. Insulin is the fat-storing hormone. Replacing fat-in-food with sugars-in-food. Importance of grass-fed cows. How much protein is enough?

Using blood tests to get inspired to get serious with the diet? The education part is so very important. Inspired by doctors Jason Fung, and Mark Hyman, as well as motivational speaker Tony Robbins.
Salt is a very important nutrient.
1:26:23 - Many people feel they are guinea pigs for doctors and scientists. 
Look at diabetics and the promotion of medications in stead of nutritional counseling. When it comes to your health don’t play the odds.
Laughter is good for your health, as is practice of “Gratitude.” The more grateful you are the better you start feeling. The more you focus on it the more you get it; the more your health growths. 
1:33:39 - Billy Joe wants to interview at least 100 people ( and he invites interested listeners to go to his Facebook/Meta site 100 Pound Fat Loss Forum
Doing intermittent fasting PLUS the extra 1-day fast every week will help to shrink the extra skin as well. This is also for health reasons, not just for vanity. 
When we live with better health, we will have inner peace. This will help all our relationships.
