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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

839: George & Tina Pauley Share Their Experience On The 2014 Low-Carb Cruise

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 9.18.14 AM

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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!

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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

839: George & Tina Pauley Share Their Experience On The 2014 Low-Carb Cruise

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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!

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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

839: George & Tina Pauley Share Their Experience On The 2014 Low-Carb Cruise

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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!

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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

839: George & Tina Pauley Share Their Experience On The 2014 Low-Carb Cruise

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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!

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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

839: George & Tina Pauley Share Their Experience On The 2014 Low-Carb Cruise

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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!

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!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

839: George & Tina Pauley Share Their Experience On The 2014 Low-Carb Cruise

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 9.18.14 AM

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).
