Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 7.12.10 PM

Registered, Licensed Dietitian, health coach, blogger and podcaster Cassie Bjork is our special guest host interviewing Paleo blogger and author Michelle Tam in Episode 806 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

786: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Deborah Snyder And Dr. Eric Kossoff On Keto For Epilepsy

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

786: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Deborah Snyder And Dr. Eric Kossoff On Keto For Epilepsy

Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 2.25.19 PM

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally.

Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 7.12.10 PM

Registered, Licensed Dietitian, health coach, blogger and podcaster Cassie Bjork is our special guest host interviewing Paleo blogger and author Michelle Tam in Episode 806 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

786: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Deborah Snyder And Dr. Eric Kossoff On Keto For Epilepsy

Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 2.25.19 PM

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!
