Sometimes you just gotta laugh at the mess we find ourselves in. While skyrocketing rates are no laughing matter, some of the reasons (and excuses) given for how and why we got this way can certainly be comical. CalorieLab.com health writer Bob Wieder knows a thing or two about obesity and being funny and decided to combine these two passions in a Kindle e-book on the subject entitled 115 Reasons Why It’s Not Your Fault If You’re Fat: Justifications, Rationalizations, Excuses, and Extenuating Circumstances for the Not Exactly Thin. As you might imagine, anything and everything is on the table in this book pointing the finger at your mom, biology, family, school, where you live, other fat people, society, lifestyle choices, your job, the auto industry, chemical industry, food and beverage industry, government, God, and whoever else we can find to blame. Listen in as Jimmy and Bob explore some of the more intriguing reasons why you became fat and the state of obesity in modern times.

When your life has been radically changed through a shift to a healthy Paleo/low-carb way of eating, then you can’t help but want to share this good news with everyone you come into contact with. And while most people tend to start blogs, make YouTube videos, record podcasts or other conventional methods for educating others about this nutritional plan, it’s quickly obvious that Shelby Malaterre, Bob Montgomery and June Sinclair are not most people. Wanna know how they are being champions for the Paleo/low-carb lifestyle? FOOD TRUCKS! No kidding, they’ve created food trucks where they live to educate the people in their neighborhoods about how to eat delicious and nutritious meals without all the carbage.

Shelby Malaterre runs the “Caveman Truck” in the Indianapolis, Indiana area with his unique “Pal Leo” caveman character plastered along the side of his food truck. Bob Montgomery and June Sinclair are the masterminds behind the “Not So Fast!” Food Truck in the San Diego, California area putting the focus on quality fresh local foods to nourish the bodies of the fortunate customers who get to frequent their business. It’s a novel idea and there are less than a dozen Paleo/low-carb food trucks currently in the United States. But these enthusiastic Paleo food truck owners are hoping that they are on the ground floor of an incredible trend that is sure to take America by storm. Listen in to Jimmy’s fun conversation with these innovators looking to make a difference for the sake of Paleo/low-carb living!

268: Food Marketing Expert Hank Cardello Explains How Manufacturers Are Making You ‘Stuffed’!

Play

Hello and welcome back to The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Today Jimmy shares his interview with Hank Cardello, a former insider in the world of food commerce who had a change of heart after a brush with cancer in the 1990s. These days Hank wants everyone to know what food brands, restaurants and grocery stores are really thinking about when developing marketing schemes and new products. It may not be a conspiracy against consumers, but it can be a messy business with much room for improvement.

While talking about Hank’s book called Stuffed, Jimmy does set the record straight on a point or two, such as Cardello’s assertion that only calories are important to labels, but Jimmy clearly enjoyed the book and asks the author to relate and expand on many of the insider insights shared within.

226: Tom Naughton’s ‘FAT HEAD’ Turns The Tables On ‘Supersize Me’

Play

Hello and welcome back to your favorite health and nutrition podcast The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore! Today, Jimmy talks with and proudly introduces you to a documentarian (and comedian) named Tom Naughton.

Tom has a real beef with Morgan Spurlock, the infamous creator of Supersize Me. As you may recall, Spurlock’s claim to fame made the assertion that fast food specifically from McDonald’s is leading the U.S. into an obesity epidemic by offering unhealthy, addictive food and pushing larger and larger food servings. In contrast, though, Tom Naughton’s response documentary, FAT HEAD, claims that this is “a load of bologna!”

We hear from Tom in today’s interview about some of the key themes of FAT HEAD: namely that it shows that obesity is NOT an epidemic, is overdiagnosed, is not a disease and is not a death sentence. Further, with the help of some key low-carb consultants Dr. Mike Eades and Gary Taubes, he shows that it is very possible to lose weight AND improve your health markers on a purely fast food diet by simply applying some common sense and avoiding insulin triggering menu items.
