After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues). Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

933: Dr. Richard Feinman Says The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution Underway

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues). Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

933: Dr. Richard Feinman Says The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution Underway

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares. DON’T MISS IT! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues). Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues). Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

933: Dr. Richard Feinman Says The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution Underway

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues). Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal.

Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

933: Dr. Richard Feinman Says The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution Underway

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues).

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues). Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

933: Dr. Richard Feinman Says The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution Underway

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares.

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

So many people are walking through life completely exhausted both physically and mentally these days and they can’t quite understand what is going on. When they go see their doctor about their symptoms, most medical professionals are completely oblivious to what is happening to their patients and generally only prescribe medications to help them relax. This unfortunately only masks the real issue at hand–their adrenals are all out of whack. This is something a naturopathic medical doctor named Dr. Alan Christianson sees as a far too common scenario driving patients to crave more carbohydrates in the afternoon and feeling completely drained on a nearly daily basis. His solution to this is outlined in his New York Times bestselling book The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Christianson dig deeper into why fixing your adrenals and resetting them is so important, how he went from a “nerdy fat kid” to turning to health, his epilepsy related to having cerebral palsy, why he instinctively cut out sugars and breads at age 12, how obesity is impacting even animals now where calories are monitored, how Jimmy put his obese cat on the Catkins diet as shared by Dr. Travis Einertson in Episode 498, the many factors involved in weight gain (it’s more than just diet), how people can determine if their adrenals are the problem or not, how mainstream medicine doesn’t give credence to the importance of adrenal function, the online Adrenal Quiz you can take to see where YOU stand in your adrenal health, all the various ways to test cortisol and adrenal hormone levels, how belly fat is a huge indication that adrenals are out of whack, how our bodies go into a “famine” response, the duplicate meanings of stress that both apply to most people with adrenal dysfunction, how quickly cortisol levels can become normalized if they are off the charts, how our bodies are “programmed” to gain weight, how shifting your carbohydrate intake to the evening (small amounts) can help improve your cortisol levels, the “gentle, appropriate amount of insulin” to help normalize your cortisol levels, how healthy dietary fats play a role in adrenal function, whether there is any clinical research supporting his strategy for improving adrenal health, how light exposure can have a direct impact on your adrenals, the common vernacular people have about their adrenals being “crashed,” the basic breathing, prayer and meditation that can help make the biggest difference in your adrenal health, and how supplements can help with adrenal function (but there are many different kinds for various adrenal issues). Today’s interview with Dr. Christianson might just wake you up to discovering a problem you’ve been dealing with that you never knew you had!

In the past few years, we have seen a major resurgence in the low-carb, high-fat message rising up in popularity around the world. In countries like Sweden, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and more, carbohydrate restriction has become the basis of a societal paradigm shift that has been going on in the research world for more than a decade. It’s as if we’re now seeing a second low-carbohydrate revolution underway as a biochemistry professor from SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York named Dr. Richard Feinman puts it. He’s laid the case for this bold proclamation in his new book The World Turned Upside Down: The Second Low-Carbohydrate Revolution.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Feinman exchange ideas about how to unravel the years of flawed science that have kept the low-fat, high-carb diet afloat, how writing about nutrition involves not just science but politics too, how the field of nutrition has very low standards for evidence, the gold standard for anything you’re trying to prove is the one that answers the question, the problem with confounding factors in diet research, when the first low-carb revolution happened in the early 2000’s, results of the Gary Foster low-carb trial and why the methodology wasn’t good, how Dr. Christopher Gardner’s low-carb study compared, whether we will ever see a genuine ketogenic diet used in research studies, why the burden of proof is on the low-fat diet to provide the evidence, why there’s no controversy about low-carb diets in the science, how not all revolutions necessarily turn out well, why George Washington is on the front cover of his book, how to insure the second low-carb revolution is a success, why he believes the government have to be a part of the solution (although they’re inept at giving advice), his American football analogy of the quarterback with insulin in metabolism, what’s happening with the respected researchers at Harvard Medical, how the red meat studies are incredibly misguided, the “Bill Gates walking into a bar” confounding statistical variation, the “seventh egg” story about the absurdity of health conclusions from nutritional choices, showing benefit for one year does not mean you’ll fall apart in two years, and how the Journal of N=1 would be an incredible medical journal. A fascinating conversation you WON’T want to miss!

An historic international event took place last month from February 19-22, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa when a gathering of 17 of the world’s biggest experts on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets gathered for a first-of-its-kind four-day medical conference called The Old Mutual Health Convention. Our host Jimmy Moore was asked to participate and he was privileged to help bring these speakers together for event organizer Karen Thomson from “Sugar Free Karen.” And one of the attendees who was reporting live on social media from the conference was a nutritionist named Emily Maguire from the “Low Carb Genesis” blog. These three share their thoughts about this incredible event that will be made available online very soon and is heading to London and Washington, DC over the next year.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Karen, and Emily talk about how this event came about, the strong leadership Professor Tim Noakes is providing the LCHF movement in South Africa, the dream-turned-reality to put this conference on, how half of the medical professionals in attendance weren’t necessarily supporters of low-carb, high-fat at the beginning, highlights of the most memorable speakers, the amazing low-carb food served at the conference, the unveiling of an online event coming soon, plans for future conferences in the UK and USA, and so much more. History was made in South Africa and it’s only just the beginning of some exciting times coming in the next few years.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares.

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.
