There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

942: Dr. Shauna Young Is Erasing Autism Through The No Harm Foundation

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!
