In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

967: Amy Berger Examines The Ketogenic Antidote To Alzheimer’s Disease

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 6.57.37 PM

Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger is our guest today in Episode 967 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

967: Amy Berger Examines The Ketogenic Antidote To Alzheimer’s Disease

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 6.57.37 PM

Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger is our guest today in Episode 967 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.49.44 PM

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 975 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Play

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it).

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.49.44 PM

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 975 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it).

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

967: Amy Berger Examines The Ketogenic Antidote To Alzheimer’s Disease

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 6.57.37 PM

Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger is our guest today in Episode 967 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

967: Amy Berger Examines The Ketogenic Antidote To Alzheimer’s Disease

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 6.57.37 PM

Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger is our guest today in Episode 967 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.49.44 PM

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 975 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.
