Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

827: Terry Shanahan Shares Real Food Paleo Principles With Professional Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 3.53.08 PM

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

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!

After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

827: Terry Shanahan Shares Real Food Paleo Principles With Professional Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 3.53.08 PM

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

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!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

827: Terry Shanahan Shares Real Food Paleo Principles With Professional Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 3.53.08 PM

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

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!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries.

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

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!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

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!

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

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.

That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

827: Terry Shanahan Shares Real Food Paleo Principles With Professional Athletes

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

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 in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

827: Terry Shanahan Shares Real Food Paleo Principles With Professional Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 3.53.08 PM

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

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!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.
