After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!
