Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

New developments in the world of nutrition are constantly happening as we learn more about more about the interaction between what we eat and how it impacts our bodies. When registered dietitian Seth Bronheim heard the story about a slow-release carbohydrate that doesn’t act like a carbohydrate on blood sugar, he was immediately intrigued. That’s when he came on board as the Director Nutrition for Generation UCAN to promote their unique SuperStarch product and new snack bars endorsed by such luminaries in the low-carb community like Ohio State University researcher Dr. Jeff Volek. So many low-carbers have been asking questions about this product and so we decided to bring Seth on the show to talk about it today.

Listen in as Jimmy and Seth share the story about how this product was developed to help the Generation UCAN creator’s son Jonah deal with a rare metabolic disease where he had to eat every couple of hours to stay alive, the time-release aspect of the carbohydrates in the SuperStarch product, how this product gives your brain and energy levels the perfect amount of energy without blood sugar and insulin spikes, how low-carbers can use Generation UCAN SuperStarch as part of their carbohydrate-restricted diet, the unique use of UCAN products for low-carb athletes, the new Generation UCAN snack bars, and the UCAN For Low Carb Webinar Seth will be leading coming up on Monday, March 16, 2015 from 8-9PM ET.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

New developments in the world of nutrition are constantly happening as we learn more about more about the interaction between what we eat and how it impacts our bodies. When registered dietitian Seth Bronheim heard the story about a slow-release carbohydrate that doesn’t act like a carbohydrate on blood sugar, he was immediately intrigued. That’s when he came on board as the Director Nutrition for Generation UCAN to promote their unique SuperStarch product and new snack bars endorsed by such luminaries in the low-carb community like Ohio State University researcher Dr. Jeff Volek. So many low-carbers have been asking questions about this product and so we decided to bring Seth on the show to talk about it today.

Listen in as Jimmy and Seth share the story about how this product was developed to help the Generation UCAN creator’s son Jonah deal with a rare metabolic disease where he had to eat every couple of hours to stay alive, the time-release aspect of the carbohydrates in the SuperStarch product, how this product gives your brain and energy levels the perfect amount of energy without blood sugar and insulin spikes, how low-carbers can use Generation UCAN SuperStarch as part of their carbohydrate-restricted diet, the unique use of UCAN products for low-carb athletes, the new Generation UCAN snack bars, and the UCAN For Low Carb Webinar Seth will be leading coming up on Monday, March 16, 2015 from 8-9PM ET.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

New developments in the world of nutrition are constantly happening as we learn more about more about the interaction between what we eat and how it impacts our bodies. When registered dietitian Seth Bronheim heard the story about a slow-release carbohydrate that doesn’t act like a carbohydrate on blood sugar, he was immediately intrigued. That’s when he came on board as the Director Nutrition for Generation UCAN to promote their unique SuperStarch product and new snack bars endorsed by such luminaries in the low-carb community like Ohio State University researcher Dr. Jeff Volek. So many low-carbers have been asking questions about this product and so we decided to bring Seth on the show to talk about it today.

Listen in as Jimmy and Seth share the story about how this product was developed to help the Generation UCAN creator’s son Jonah deal with a rare metabolic disease where he had to eat every couple of hours to stay alive, the time-release aspect of the carbohydrates in the SuperStarch product, how this product gives your brain and energy levels the perfect amount of energy without blood sugar and insulin spikes, how low-carbers can use Generation UCAN SuperStarch as part of their carbohydrate-restricted diet, the unique use of UCAN products for low-carb athletes, the new Generation UCAN snack bars, and the UCAN For Low Carb Webinar Seth will be leading coming up on Monday, March 16, 2015 from 8-9PM ET.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

New developments in the world of nutrition are constantly happening as we learn more about more about the interaction between what we eat and how it impacts our bodies. When registered dietitian Seth Bronheim heard the story about a slow-release carbohydrate that doesn’t act like a carbohydrate on blood sugar, he was immediately intrigued. That’s when he came on board as the Director Nutrition for Generation UCAN to promote their unique SuperStarch product and new snack bars endorsed by such luminaries in the low-carb community like Ohio State University researcher Dr. Jeff Volek. So many low-carbers have been asking questions about this product and so we decided to bring Seth on the show to talk about it today.

Listen in as Jimmy and Seth share the story about how this product was developed to help the Generation UCAN creator’s son Jonah deal with a rare metabolic disease where he had to eat every couple of hours to stay alive, the time-release aspect of the carbohydrates in the SuperStarch product, how this product gives your brain and energy levels the perfect amount of energy without blood sugar and insulin spikes, how low-carbers can use Generation UCAN SuperStarch as part of their carbohydrate-restricted diet, the unique use of UCAN products for low-carb athletes, the new Generation UCAN snack bars, and the UCAN For Low Carb Webinar Seth will be leading coming up on Monday, March 16, 2015 from 8-9PM ET.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

New developments in the world of nutrition are constantly happening as we learn more about more about the interaction between what we eat and how it impacts our bodies. When registered dietitian Seth Bronheim heard the story about a slow-release carbohydrate that doesn’t act like a carbohydrate on blood sugar, he was immediately intrigued. That’s when he came on board as the Director Nutrition for Generation UCAN to promote their unique SuperStarch product and new snack bars endorsed by such luminaries in the low-carb community like Ohio State University researcher Dr. Jeff Volek. So many low-carbers have been asking questions about this product and so we decided to bring Seth on the show to talk about it today.

Listen in as Jimmy and Seth share the story about how this product was developed to help the Generation UCAN creator’s son Jonah deal with a rare metabolic disease where he had to eat every couple of hours to stay alive, the time-release aspect of the carbohydrates in the SuperStarch product, how this product gives your brain and energy levels the perfect amount of energy without blood sugar and insulin spikes, how low-carbers can use Generation UCAN SuperStarch as part of their carbohydrate-restricted diet, the unique use of UCAN products for low-carb athletes, the new Generation UCAN snack bars, and the UCAN For Low Carb Webinar Seth will be leading coming up on Monday, March 16, 2015 from 8-9PM ET.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

New developments in the world of nutrition are constantly happening as we learn more about more about the interaction between what we eat and how it impacts our bodies. When registered dietitian Seth Bronheim heard the story about a slow-release carbohydrate that doesn’t act like a carbohydrate on blood sugar, he was immediately intrigued. That’s when he came on board as the Director Nutrition for Generation UCAN to promote their unique SuperStarch product and new snack bars endorsed by such luminaries in the low-carb community like Ohio State University researcher Dr. Jeff Volek. So many low-carbers have been asking questions about this product and so we decided to bring Seth on the show to talk about it today.

Listen in as Jimmy and Seth share the story about how this product was developed to help the Generation UCAN creator’s son Jonah deal with a rare metabolic disease where he had to eat every couple of hours to stay alive, the time-release aspect of the carbohydrates in the SuperStarch product, how this product gives your brain and energy levels the perfect amount of energy without blood sugar and insulin spikes, how low-carbers can use Generation UCAN SuperStarch as part of their carbohydrate-restricted diet, the unique use of UCAN products for low-carb athletes, the new Generation UCAN snack bars, and the UCAN For Low Carb Webinar Seth will be leading coming up on Monday, March 16, 2015 from 8-9PM ET.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

959: Kai Hibbard Says The Biggest Loser Is Publicly Fat Shaming Contestants

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.
