It all started on October 23, 2006 when our host Jimmy Moore first stepped behind the microphone of this podcast to begin a historic journey that has now taken him into podcasting infamy. At the encouragement and behest of his longtime producer Kevin Kennedy-Spaien from Disc Of Light Media, Jimmy began doing this podcast as a means for communicating rants on various subjects and then quickly morphing into an interview-based podcasting that has become the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today featuring a virtual who’s who in the diet, fitness, and health community.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kevin take a walk through memory lane at how the show humbly began through the urging of Kevin, some of the more intriguing and interesting guests we’ve had on over the years, and the lasting impact the podcast has had on the lives of the millions of people who have listened. Plus, don’t miss the personal messages from 42 former guests and friends of the show who wanted to help commemorate this historic 1000th episode milestone.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

997: Attorney Tony Martinez Pushing LCHF Through Public Policy And The Law

Screen Shot 2015-08-23 at 6.46.24 PM

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.
