After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Study: Impaired glucose tolerance in low-carbohydrate diet: maybe only a physiological state

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Study: Measuring HDL particles as opposed to HDL cholesterol is a a better indicator of coronary heart disease

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living.

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living.

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Study: Impaired glucose tolerance in low-carbohydrate diet: maybe only a physiological state

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.
