We like to stay on top of what’s happening in the low-carb community and bring to you breaking news when it happens. And today we begin the podcast with a shocking turn of events that took place on Friday, January 27, 2011 when a group of dietitians began investigating Steve Cooksey’s low-carb diabetes blog called Diabetes Warrior because they claim he is giving nutritional counseling services to his readers without a license. As a formerly obese man who was taking insulin and medications to help control his diabetes, Steve no longer has to do that since finding healthy high-fat, low-carb living. This apparently has not sat well with these RDs in North Carolina who would like nothing more than to silence his First Amendment rights to free speech. This could be a HUGE opportunity to spread the low-carb message if this story gets some major media attention and we’ll be following it closely as it unfolds. Here’s a YouTube video of my 9-minute conversation with Steve Cooksey which airs in today’s episode:
Next up we hear from someone who addresses an issue I hear about quite a bit: “How can you eat a low-carb/Paleo/primal lifestyle on a budget?” Well, never fear because Carolyn Rush is here offering up a fabulous new e-book for all of you penny pinchers out there with her brand new resource called Primal Tightwad. Endorsed by former podcast guest Nora Gedgaudas who wrote Primal Body, Primal Mind, this is sure to help so many people who struggle to find a balance between consuming nourishing foods that keep them healthy without causing major damage to their pocketbooks! Carolyn wrote this book on the prodding of Nora although she thought everyone knew about this stuff. Obviously not–and now we have a great way to eat well and still have change left over.
