The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

990: Dr. Sarah Hallberg Bringing Low-Carb Nutrition To The Medical Forefront

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!
