Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

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.

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

You might be wondering why Jimmy has invited on the founder and owner of Rivendell Bicycle Works named Grant Petersen who wrote what is widely considered “the bible for bicycle riders” called Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike. What does this have to do with nutrition and health? Well, after years of believing in the high-carb message for athletes, Grant educated himself on all the latest science about why fat isn’t the enemy in our health. Now he’s taken all of this newly-acquired knowledge and put it into book form with Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit. It’s a plain language food and fitness guide that shares the truth about low-carb, high-fat diets that buck the trend of conventional wisdom. It contains 100 short and funny essays that explain the basic concepts of LCHF in introductory terms that anyone can understand. Listen in to Grant and Jimmy have a fabulous conversation about his new book that also includes nourishing recipes, workouts, and solid information for anyone interested in healthy low-carb living.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

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.

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

You might be wondering why Jimmy has invited on the founder and owner of Rivendell Bicycle Works named Grant Petersen who wrote what is widely considered “the bible for bicycle riders” called Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike. What does this have to do with nutrition and health? Well, after years of believing in the high-carb message for athletes, Grant educated himself on all the latest science about why fat isn’t the enemy in our health. Now he’s taken all of this newly-acquired knowledge and put it into book form with Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit. It’s a plain language food and fitness guide that shares the truth about low-carb, high-fat diets that buck the trend of conventional wisdom. It contains 100 short and funny essays that explain the basic concepts of LCHF in introductory terms that anyone can understand. Listen in to Grant and Jimmy have a fabulous conversation about his new book that also includes nourishing recipes, workouts, and solid information for anyone interested in healthy low-carb living.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

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.

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

You might be wondering why Jimmy has invited on the founder and owner of Rivendell Bicycle Works named Grant Petersen who wrote what is widely considered “the bible for bicycle riders” called Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike. What does this have to do with nutrition and health? Well, after years of believing in the high-carb message for athletes, Grant educated himself on all the latest science about why fat isn’t the enemy in our health. Now he’s taken all of this newly-acquired knowledge and put it into book form with Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit. It’s a plain language food and fitness guide that shares the truth about low-carb, high-fat diets that buck the trend of conventional wisdom. It contains 100 short and funny essays that explain the basic concepts of LCHF in introductory terms that anyone can understand. Listen in to Grant and Jimmy have a fabulous conversation about his new book that also includes nourishing recipes, workouts, and solid information for anyone interested in healthy low-carb living.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment).

And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

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.

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.

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

You might be wondering why Jimmy has invited on the founder and owner of Rivendell Bicycle Works named Grant Petersen who wrote what is widely considered “the bible for bicycle riders” called Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike. What does this have to do with nutrition and health? Well, after years of believing in the high-carb message for athletes, Grant educated himself on all the latest science about why fat isn’t the enemy in our health. Now he’s taken all of this newly-acquired knowledge and put it into book form with Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit. It’s a plain language food and fitness guide that shares the truth about low-carb, high-fat diets that buck the trend of conventional wisdom. It contains 100 short and funny essays that explain the basic concepts of LCHF in introductory terms that anyone can understand. Listen in to Grant and Jimmy have a fabulous conversation about his new book that also includes nourishing recipes, workouts, and solid information for anyone interested in healthy low-carb living.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

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.

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

You might be wondering why Jimmy has invited on the founder and owner of Rivendell Bicycle Works named Grant Petersen who wrote what is widely considered “the bible for bicycle riders” called Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike. What does this have to do with nutrition and health? Well, after years of believing in the high-carb message for athletes, Grant educated himself on all the latest science about why fat isn’t the enemy in our health. Now he’s taken all of this newly-acquired knowledge and put it into book form with Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit. It’s a plain language food and fitness guide that shares the truth about low-carb, high-fat diets that buck the trend of conventional wisdom. It contains 100 short and funny essays that explain the basic concepts of LCHF in introductory terms that anyone can understand. Listen in to Grant and Jimmy have a fabulous conversation about his new book that also includes nourishing recipes, workouts, and solid information for anyone interested in healthy low-carb living.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

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.

You might be wondering why Jimmy has invited on the founder and owner of Rivendell Bicycle Works named Grant Petersen who wrote what is widely considered “the bible for bicycle riders” called Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike. What does this have to do with nutrition and health? Well, after years of believing in the high-carb message for athletes, Grant educated himself on all the latest science about why fat isn’t the enemy in our health. Now he’s taken all of this newly-acquired knowledge and put it into book form with Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit. It’s a plain language food and fitness guide that shares the truth about low-carb, high-fat diets that buck the trend of conventional wisdom. It contains 100 short and funny essays that explain the basic concepts of LCHF in introductory terms that anyone can understand. Listen in to Grant and Jimmy have a fabulous conversation about his new book that also includes nourishing recipes, workouts, and solid information for anyone interested in healthy low-carb living.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

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.

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a very special treat for you in #1 New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss from what was called The Four Hour Workweek blog when this interview first aired (now it’s called The Tim Ferriss Experiment). While Tim was already well respected when Jimmy first interviewed him many years ago thanks to the success of his runaway bestselling books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he’s risen to even greater heights ever since with his own television show and podcast. And with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2015, he’s now committed to a full-fledged ketogenic nutritional approach in his pursuit of properly managing the disease (Jimmy is attempting to book him for another interview to discuss it). Listen in as Jimmy and Tim discuss slow-carb nutrition, thermogenic weight loss, the influence of Gary Taubes, and so much more in this LLVLC Classic episode!

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.

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

You might be wondering why Jimmy has invited on the founder and owner of Rivendell Bicycle Works named Grant Petersen who wrote what is widely considered “the bible for bicycle riders” called Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike. What does this have to do with nutrition and health? Well, after years of believing in the high-carb message for athletes, Grant educated himself on all the latest science about why fat isn’t the enemy in our health. Now he’s taken all of this newly-acquired knowledge and put it into book form with Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit. It’s a plain language food and fitness guide that shares the truth about low-carb, high-fat diets that buck the trend of conventional wisdom. It contains 100 short and funny essays that explain the basic concepts of LCHF in introductory terms that anyone can understand. Listen in to Grant and Jimmy have a fabulous conversation about his new book that also includes nourishing recipes, workouts, and solid information for anyone interested in healthy low-carb living.
