Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more! There’s a plethora of invaluable information in this podcast that can help you if you blog, podcast, do YouTube videos, or have a social media presence sharing about healthy Paleo or low-carb living!

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

846: Will White Envisions Where The Paleo Diet Will Be In 25 Years

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 7.32.43 PM

Iraq war veteran, standup comedian, and Paleo visionary Will White is our interview guest today in Episode 846 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

This is an awesome conversation!

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

846: Will White Envisions Where The Paleo Diet Will Be In 25 Years

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 7.32.43 PM

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more! There’s a plethora of invaluable information in this podcast that can help you if you blog, podcast, do YouTube videos, or have a social media presence sharing about healthy Paleo or low-carb living!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

This is an awesome conversation!

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more!

When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more! There’s a plethora of invaluable information in this podcast that can help you if you blog, podcast, do YouTube videos, or have a social media presence sharing about healthy Paleo or low-carb living!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

846: Will White Envisions Where The Paleo Diet Will Be In 25 Years

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 7.32.43 PM

Iraq war veteran, standup comedian, and Paleo visionary Will White is our interview guest today in Episode 846 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more! There’s a plethora of invaluable information in this podcast that can help you if you blog, podcast, do YouTube videos, or have a social media presence sharing about healthy Paleo or low-carb living!

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

846: Will White Envisions Where The Paleo Diet Will Be In 25 Years

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 7.32.43 PM

Iraq war veteran, standup comedian, and Paleo visionary Will White is our interview guest today in Episode 846 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

846: Will White Envisions Where The Paleo Diet Will Be In 25 Years

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 7.32.43 PM

Iraq war veteran, standup comedian, and Paleo visionary Will White is our interview guest today in Episode 846 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

This is an awesome conversation!

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

846: Will White Envisions Where The Paleo Diet Will Be In 25 Years

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 7.32.43 PM

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Every successful movement needs visionaries who can assess the current trends and make educated predictions about what will happen in the future. That’s the role that Denver, CO-based Paleo advocate Will White from “Caveman Cafeteria” has taken on in the Paleo community seeing how to make this lifestyle sustainable from a business perspective to help the message remain relevant to the masses who need to hear about it. You might recall his Kickstarter campaign to open the first Paleo food stand in Denver in 2013 and now he’s turned to focusing on his very successful Paleo meal delivery service along with offering Paleo nutrition coaching from his company’s in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly.

Listen to Jimmy and Will have quite the eclectic conversation about a wide variety of subjects, including how he got interested in fitness and eventually finding Crossfit, his Kickstarter campaign to start a Paleo food truck and catering business in Denver, Colorado, why a food truck is a good business model “if you’re not very good at math,” the incredible difficulty of making a profitable business as a Paleo restaurant, why he believes a healthy Paleo meal delivery service is the future moneymaking business opportunity, the success of a similar meal delivery service called The Fresh Diet, why he chose the term “caveman” in his business name instead of Paleo or ancestral, his in-house nutritionist Heather Kelly from “OPENutrition” who promotes Paleo nutrition to customers, his #FeedARevolution passion he lives by, why average, everyday people aren’t as conscious of the issue of food sustainability, how close we are to the “vertical farming” concept being a reality, why people need to stop relying on the government to do things for us, how Paleo convinced him that we are self-sufficient as individuals and don’t need help, the problem with giving doctors an incentive to promote drugs, Robb Wolf’s work with the first responders in Reno, Nevada, the new marijuana edibles brand he’s developing called Low Carb High, and more. Will is a bit eccentric and some might say just a little crazy. But we could use more forward-thinking people like him to bring Paleo to the forefront of mainstream thinking.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the interview guests we invite on to the podcast have something to contribute in the realm of diet, fitness and health. But today we wanted to shift gears slightly by inviting on a Tampa, FL-based lawyer named Brent C.J. Britton who specializes in intellectual property and helping keep start-up companies legal. As a fan of the Paleo diet personally, Brent is committed to helping Paleo bloggers, podcasters and other content producers protect the content they are producing to prevent others from stealing it. He’s written a beginner’s guide to this topic entitled Ownability: How Intellectual Property Works and shares some of the insights from his book in today’s show.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more! There’s a plethora of invaluable information in this podcast that can help you if you blog, podcast, do YouTube videos, or have a social media presence sharing about healthy Paleo or low-carb living!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Brent discuss how he blogs as the “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer,” his background in computer science that turned to the law, his friend Joe Salama introduced him to Paleo in 2011 with “astounding results,” why he’s not bothered by the criticisms of the “caveman” imagery, what Paleo and low-carb content makers can do to protect their intellectual property (and why it may not be a big deal), why people feel comfortable taking content from the Internet, any content redistribution needs proper attribution, what you can do if someone takes your content and reposts it on their website, how to deal with someone overtly stealing content online and selling them as e-books (if they are profiting from it, then they are ripe for being sued), the case of Steve Cooksey who got sued for giving dietary advice, how people blogging in the Paleo or low-carb community should be careful with the disclaimer they display on their page to avoid legal ramifications, why using the phrase “no copyright intended” is meaningless, if you get something from a company at no charge then you must disclose that information, the CMP.LY disclosure that I use with my sponsors, the interesting way people view the Internet (it’s taboo to make money on it in the eyes of many people), how it doesn’t cost you a dime to access the LLVLC content, why incorporating as a business is vitally important, why grabbing the URL and form an LLC doesn’t give you the trademark to any particular name, the importance of “get it in writing,” the controversy over who owns the trademark to “The Paleo Diet” (Dr. Loren Cordain holds it), how “The Paleo Diet” was more distinctive in the past but not as much now, if you want to create a unique name with “Paleo” then use more words, and so much more! There’s a plethora of invaluable information in this podcast that can help you if you blog, podcast, do YouTube videos, or have a social media presence sharing about healthy Paleo or low-carb living!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!
