The greatest nemesis in any given diet plan is hunger. When you are hungry, then your body starts to scream at you to feed it more food by giving you clues like hunger pangs, fatigue, and other such symptoms. But a Harvard-based pediatric endocrinologist, medical school professor, and nutritional health researcher named Dr. David Ludwig (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 403) from DrDavidLudwig.com would argue that it’s not necessarily the overeating that has made us all fat–instead, it’s getting fat that makes us overeat. This is why we are constantly fighting the desire to consume more and more to try to satisfy that persistent physical cue to eat. It’s the premise of Dr. Ludwig’s brand new New York Times bestselling Always Hungry?: Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ludwig talk about the methods that help children helps adults too, Dr. Ludwig’s 2012 “calorie is not a calorie” JAMA study, the difference in energy expenditure and weight changes with low-carb vs. low-fat diets, why an isocaloric meal comparison will produce the same weight loss results in the short term, why continuing to cut calories is problematic, the power of hunger signals and why they should not be ignored, Dr. Ludwig’s 2004 fast-acting carbs Lancet study, how the process of getting fat makes you overeat, why insulin is the Miracle Grow for fat cells, why having hunger as a good thing is a “cultural delusion,” whether continuous exposure to refined carbohydrates can make you more sensitive to all carbs, why diet order matters in the effect on your metabolism, the three phases of his plan, the modifications in the plan for people with carb sensitivity, why some people may not see results on his plan, why his plan is not a ketogenic diet, how he works backwards from his approach to Atkins to ketogenic, and how ketones are a very clean fuel for the body.

An out of control appetite is the nemesis of many would-be dieters with high hopes for losing weight and improving their health. But for Dr. Bert Herring, MD from BertHerring.com, he understands why people overeat and is now seeking to help patients correct this problem. Dr. Herring is best known for his book on intermittent fasting entitled The Fast-5 Diet and the Fast-5 Lifestyle (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 503). But in his latest book AC: The Power of Appetite Correction, Dr. Herring gives practical guidelines based on conversations with his “Fast-5ers” for correcting the appetite disorder that is leading to overconsumption of food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Herring talk about why he wanted to write a follow-up book to his Fast-5 program, why eating in such a way to turn down appetite is key, the tools he created to help correct the appetite, the hormones involved in appetite and why they’re not as important as you might think, how cortisol can bring on intense hunger, how stress raises cortisol which increases insulin that can make you hungry, why you should expend a little work into making your food to respect the process, how he uses the acronym AC to adjust the thermostat of your body, his thoughts on extended fasts up to 3 days long, why each person needs to customize the fast that works for them, the “dark stigma” that still exists with fasting, why he’s not a fan of fasts longer than a few days without medical supervision, when he believes it’s possible to go “too far” in your fasting efforts, nature’s natural mechanisms to control appetite in the animal kingdom, the intense pull of food advertising, how our bodies are like the Stone Age even though our culture is not, and how we the consumers are the “product” of the television commercials.

NOTE: We apologize for the moments of “noise” during the interview. Andrew used the internal microphone on his computer and he nervously slid it around as he was talking. His story was much too powerful not to share even with these sounds.

The use of ketogenic diets in the treatment of various kinds of cancers has been a hot subject within research circles for the past few years. But it’s the compelling personal stories of individuals with cancer who are in desperate circumstances feeling helpless by the conventional treatment of chemotherapy and other cancer drugs who finally find success in nutritional therapy that makes this worth taking a closer look. Last week we shared the inspiring story of an eye cancer survivor from Dublin, Ireland named Patricia Daly who implemented a ketogenic diet to help her body heal. And today we have an even more miraculous ketogenic cancer success story in a man from London, England named Andrew Scarborough from the “My Brain Cancer Story” blog who was diagnosed with an incurable brain cancer along with epilepsy. But Andrew didn’t let that stop him from researching the metabolic theory of cancer to keep his grim diagnosis at bay.

Listen in as Jimmy and Andrew talk about his graduate schooling in nutrition where he learned about ketogenic diets, the migraines he started dealing with during his master’s training, how doctors dismissed his headaches as stress-induced pain, the progression of his symptoms that first took his speech away, gave him “crushing headaches,” involuntary spasms and pressure in his head, intense pain, and then a life-threatening grand mal seizure causing him to pass out, the slightly larger than a golf ball tumor they found in his brain, why doctors didn’t immediately think it was cancer, the moment they told him that his cancer was incurable, how the doctors missing it put him at greater risk, how long they told him he had to live, how he had already actively took his carbs down and seeking to be in ketosis to control his epilepsy, how Professor Thomas Seyfried‘s book Cancer As A Metabolic Disease helped him understand ketogenic diets for cancer, the side effects he felt taking the medications and chemotherapy before he went full-on ketogenic, why he sees his epilepsy as a blessing, his preference for a non-traditional ketogenic diet, the problem he experiences with the salicylates in plant-based foods, why he is concerned about his IGF-1 levels, the micronutrients that leech out when you take epilepsy medications (including B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin D), the major shifts he made in his diet that are typical of most ketogenic diets, how he made up for the micronutrients he was missing from not eating plant matter, how he got quality organ meats and animal fats from grass-fed animals cheaply, how his neurologists were “flabbergasted” by his success in beating his brain cancer, a typical day of eating for his cancer-fighting ketogenic diet, the hyperbaric chamber therapy he is now using to help continue the healing of his brain, the Ketopet therapy for dogs with cancer funded by Quest Nutrition, the therapeutic level of blood ketones for cancer treatment, whether he uses exogenous sources of ketones, how 90 percent of his diet is fat from mostly fatty insects like wax worms, why he prefers to eat the worms raw now, the fasting protocols he has engaged in since his cancer diagnosis, and his JustGiving fundraising page for brain cancer research.

Our host Jimmy Moore has been in the midst of a fasting experiment in the month of January (see all the details of this N=1 experiment in his daily Periscope updates at JimmyScopes.com). Prior to beginning this fast, he decided to drive two hours up I-85 from Spartanburg, South Carolina to Concord, North Carolina to see an emergency medicine and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Jeffrey Galvin, MD from Vitality Medical Wellness Institute (you may remember hearing Dr. Galvin back in Episode 604) to get a DEXA scan as a means for determining the baseline level of body fat and lean muscle mass. As Jimmy was doing a Periscope video of his DEXA scan (see below), a spontaneous interview with Dr. Galvin commenced that ran the gamut on a wide variety of health topics that was just too compelling not to share with you the listeners of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!


https://vimeo.com/150435615

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Galvin discuss the results of Jimmy’s DEXA scan measuring body fat and lean muscle mass, how much a DEXA scan costs and where you can get one done, why he believes Jimmy will lose a lot of muscle on his January fast, his concerns with low-protein liquid diets, why he doesn’t care about what a patient’s weight is, how mainstream medicine is starting to get the diet and lifestyle connection to disease, why mainstream medicine is currently failing at helping their patients get better, the lack of knowledge about the importance of thyroid health, why Metformin may be the first life-extension drug, the electrolytes concern he has about an extended fast, whether you can sense an arrhythmia coming on, how people can find doctors like him in their area, how he tries to determine what his patients want in their health goals, why his “normal” ranges on health tests is radically different from conventional levels, how lifestyle is the stool he seeks to optimize for his patients, why he’s not a perfectionist for his patients to be 100% strict, how you can’t get ketoacidosis eating a low-carb, kegogenic diet, and the connection between dementia/Alzheimer’s disease (Type 3 diabetes) and insulin resistance. This was quite the compelling interview that we knew you’d love to hear!
