You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

Periodontist and primal nutrition practitioner Dr. Alvin Danenberg is our interview guest today in Episode 884 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In the context of ancestral health, a lot of focus tends to be on weight loss, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. But there are enthusiasts all across the broad spectrum of the medical profession who are taking the principles of low-carb, Paleo, primal and real food directly to their patients to help them improve the aspects of their health related to their field of expertise. That’s exactly what a South Carolina-based nutritional periodontist named Dr. Alvin Danenberg is now doing for his patients after discovering the ancestral lifestyle in early 2013. He has received advanced training in ancestral nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in 2013, become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in July 2014, and in September 2014 he became a Certified Primal Blueprint Expert (Mark Sisson’s new certification program he shared about in Episode 873).

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Danenberg discuss how he got excited about dental and gum health back in the early 1970s, he practiced traditionally for 35 years until learning about the laser-based LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) protocol, why the laser treatment wasn’t the total answer for his patients, the nutritional course where he learned about ancestral health, why he shifted from being a traditional periodontist to using more modern methods for treating gum disease, his wife Sue didn’t support what he was doing but was willing to give it a chance, how his life shifted to being more primal thanks to the work of Mark Sisson, how he never heard of the work of Dr. Weston A. Price in any of his formal medical education, how he convinces his patients that tooth and gum health are related directly to their nutrition, many chronic health issues begin in dental and gum health, his work healing the gut health of his patients to improve their gum health, the results of the clinical study he has designed using real food-based, nutrient-dense supplements to see what happens to gum disease, why the C-Reactive Protein (the key inflammation marker) didn’t improve in the patients in the study, his collaboration with former podcast guest Ramiel Nagel, whether his study has been accepted to any medical journals, the self-professed limitations of his study, the company who wants him to do a study for them, and why you don’t need a commercial toothpaste to brush your teeth.

883: Dr. Kirk Parsley Implores People To Put The Proper Emphasis Back On Sleep

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 7.30.21 AM

Former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley is our interview guest today in Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

882: Ray Audette Was Paleo With ‘Neanderthin’ When Paleo Wasn’t Cool

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.46.33 AM

A legendary founding member of the modern Paleo movement Ray Audette is our interview guest today in Episode 882 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When you think about the Paleo movement these days, so many great names come to mind–Robb Wolf, Mark Sisson, Sarah Fragoso, Nora Gedgaudas, and more. But two decades ago, there were very few people sharing about how our ancestors ate and lived in pursuing and maintaining optimal health. It was the very infancy of the modern Paleolithic diet advocacy with names like Dr. Boyd Eaton, Dr. Mike Eades, and Dr. Loren Cordain. But one man who helped merge the message of Paleo with low-carb, high-fat diets was a self-professed “computer nerd” named Ray Audette who researched and studied the Paleo lifestyle to help him with his own health issues which all got considerably better once he made the switch over to a concept he refers to in the title of his book about it called Neanderthin: Eat Like a Caveman to Achieve a Lean, Strong, Healthy Body. This is now considered a classic Paleo book and the Kindle version is now available with new information if you have never read it before.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ray discuss how he was talking about Paleo long ago, how his Type 2 diabetes diagnosis turned him to nutrition to heal his body, the ten commandments of his program (5 do eats, 5 don’t eats), how he sold 10,000 copies of his self-published book before a major publisher picked it up, how his book is more for the masses compared to Dr. Eaton’s book, the focus on his diet being a high-fat diet vs. Dr. Cordain’s original lean proteins thinking, why orangutans get into ketosis for six months out of the year, Paleo simply means eating what a primate eats, why he thinks Paleo has made such a huge comeback in recent years, how he was talking about high-fat diets (with the late Dr. Mary Enig) when it wasn’t even close to being accepted, how traditional cultures have done quite well without starchy foods, the problem with acrylamide and carcinogens, how the conventional wisdom on nutrition and fitness seems to have run its course, why eating a low-carb Paleo diet isn’t as profitable as a grain-based diet, how we’ve long known the connection between grains and cancer, how the low-fat diet has been proven as a hoax (if you’re doctor is telling you to cut your fat, you need to call your attorney!), we’ve long known of the therapeutic effects of ketogenic diets and cancer, why it’s problematic on your brain health to own cats, how Dr. Mike Eades mentioned Ray’s book in Protein Power, why he has decided to make a comeback of sorts after all the new voices have been on the scene, how healthy his son is today after his wife was pregnant with him when Ray was writing his book two decades ago, and so much more! Ray is one-of-a-kind and you’ll find that out very quickly in today’s interview.

881: Dr. Eric Thorn And Marylou VanHintum Using Low-Carb Diets To Optimize Health

Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 3.47.15 PM

Cardiologist Dr. Eric Thorn and registered nurse Marylou Van Hintum are our interview guests today in Episode 881 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the most exciting developments that has been happening within the medical community over the past few years is a growing tide of healthcare providers who have become frustrated by the failure of the traditional model for medicine and are willing to look outside the box in treating their patients through nutrition and lifestyle modalities as the first option rather than so quickly turning to a prescription medication. Today’s podcast interview guests certainly fit that mold. They are an Arlington, Virginia-based cardiologist and obesity medicine physician named Dr. Eric Thorn and a real food-based registered nurse named Marylou VanHintum. Together they joined forces to open the Center for Cardio-Metabolic Health and Weight Loss in September 2012 providing medically-supervised, nutritional rehabilitation to treat metabolic syndrome, promote weight loss, reduce risk for heart disease, and improve overall quality of life. The nutritional plan they incorporated with their patients is a low-carb, high-fat diet with real, whole foods that help heal the damage that has accumulated over years, even decades, and the patients receive personalized follow-up to help them with their specific individualized needs to lose weight and get healthy.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Dr. Thorn, and Marylou share about how they came to low-carb nutrition from within the traditional medical establishment, how they came to realize how low-carb nutrition could be used as a powerful tool for promoting optimal health, why weight loss isn’t really the primary focus of their work with patients, how a cardiologist is able to talk about eating high-fat foods like bacon without getting ostracized by his colleagues, the impact of stress on your health during transitional periods in our lives (as Dr. Thorn and Marylou are currently going through parting ways but continuing their work with patients), and a whole lot more! Jimmy met these two at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) meeting a couple of years ago and this was such an intriguing discussion about the future of health and the intricate role nutrition will have to play in patient health in the coming years.
