Have you ever stopped to think about why you move your body in the way that you do? Probably not. We get into a habit of doing things the way we always do without much thought as to why to sit a certain way, stand putting more weight on one foot over the other, and other subconscious decisions that can directly impact the productivity and comfort of how we live our lives. For a Bend, Oregon-based manual therapist and movement coach named Aaron Alexander from AlignTherapy.com, he describes this body awareness as self-care that warrants our undivided attention to detail so we can move and live the way were were intended. Aaron is a fellow podcaster at the popular Align Therapy iTunes health podcast where he discusses these issues and so much more. Listen in as Jimmy and Aaron have an oftentimes goofy but informative conversations about the power of self-care and the impact it has on our health, what traveling does to your ability to move well, how to keep up great movement practices while traveling internationally, and so much more! This was a fun interview and you can get even more between these two by listening to the special BONUS interview Aaron did with our host Jimmy on his podcast today HERE.

We’ve longed to have something big happen in our culture where the real food, low-carb, high-fat message gets out there in a major way–and it has FINALLY happened in 2016. Perhaps you were able to watch the 8-episode ABC weight loss reality television show called My Diet Is Better Than Yours the past couple of months where popular fitness and nutritional health leaders were teamed up with everyday Americans who needed to lose weight and improve their health. The show was hosted by noted celebrity trainer Shaun T and featured plans such as a food swap program, a juicing regimen, and…an explicitly low-carb, high-fat diet from one of the most recognized names from the Paleo community. His name is Abel James from FatBurningMan.com and the host of the #1 iTunes Fitness & Nutrition podcast The Fat Burning Man Show. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling book called The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Abel about this book in Episode 939) and was able to see great success with his contestant Kurt on the show.


My Diet Is Better Than Yours on ABC-TV
Listen in as Jimmy and Abel talk about this experience, how his contestant Kurt faced some seemingly insurmountable odds to become one of the major contenders on the show, the stunning results he saw in just 14 weeks eating low-carb, high-fat, how eating real foods (especially fat!) helped Kurt tremendously, the flawed format of the show based on weight loss rathe than fat loss, the lack of significant exercise Kurt was able to do while on the show, why strength training is far superior to cardio when burning fat, and more. Whether you were a fan of the show already or if you’re just learning about this for the first time (watch the series on Hulu or other on-demand television streaming services), enjoy this behind-the-scenes glimpse into how low-carb, high-fat got a major push in America in 2016!

Jimmy recently interviewed Abel via Skype on his Periscope channel to talk about the behind-the-scenes of what happened on the show (watch the full JimmyScopes episodes of this interview below):

1071: Mark Sisson Helps Athletes Become A Fat-Burning Beast With Primal Endurance

Former endurance and Ironman athlete, health blogger, and bestselling author Mark Sisson is our interview guest today in Episode 1071 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

On yesterday’s episode of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show,” Jimmy interviewed a man named Peter Defty who is a triathlete coaching ultra-marathon and endurance sports athletes to tap into their body’s natural ability to burn fat for fuel. On today’s show, we keep that conversation going with a great friend of the show, former endurance and Ironman athlete, health blogger, and bestselling author named Mark Sisson from MarksDailyApple.com who knows a thing or two about endurance athletics having competed at a very elite level over three decades ago in distance running, triathlons, and Ironman competitions. When his health began to take a nosedive as a result of his performance-driven dietary choices, Mark began investigating better ways to fuel his body and realized that carbohydrates were the problem not the answer. Now he realizes the mistakes he has made and is passing along this newfound wisdom to the athletes he is helping to compete at a high level with less training, less carbs, and quicker recovery. Mark has outlined it all in his compelling new book that is a must-read for anyone interested in the physiology of how the body moves entitled Primal Endurance: Escape chronic cardio and carbohydrate dependency and become a fat burning beast.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss ultimate frisbee, what he’s hoping to accomplish with this new book on endurance training, why his “chronic cardio” mantra has been misunderstood, why training at a low level of output is better than a high level, why an athlete should avoid the carbohydrate-burning cycle, why gluconeogenesis while racing is “insignificant,” Sisson does ZOOLANDER, why you should feel “refreshed” (not hammered) after a workout, how he used to be all about pain management during races, how athletes like Nell Stephenson has shifted from lean protein Paleo to a high-fat ketogenic approach, why most marathon runners are carrying an extra 25-30 pounds, why the carbs during a race for ketogenic athletes don’t impact insulin or ketosis, the most dramatic turnaround on this has been Professor Tim Noakes, how long it will take for fat-adaptation to be the new normal, the role of ketones (and cycling in and out of making them) in an endurance race, how this concept could extend careers in professional sports, why topping off glycogen stores right before a race gives you an advantage, and why being inconsistent in your training is the key to success.

One of the surprising benefits to a ketogenic diet for a lot of people to discover is how some of the most elite endurance athletes in the world are now using this fat-adapted regimen to give them much more sustainable energy throughout their race. What this means is these athletes are actually eating a lot less of the very thing they were always told was the critical nutritional element in the performance success of their sport–carbohydrates! But for a triathlete and fat-adapted ultra-endurance sports athletics coach named Peter Defty from VESPAPower.com and FatAdaptation.com, he’s long realized the idea of “carbing-up” before a race is based on decades-old flawed science. That’s why he is taking the science of people like ketogenic research legend Dr. Stephen Phinney and training some of the best endurance athletes in the world to record-breaking performances, including Zach Bitter who we interviewed on this podcast back in Episode 944.

Listen in as Jimmy and Peter talk about how he got interested in fat-adaptation when he bonked during a race, how adding in more fat to his diet vastly improved his running, how his allergies improved after cutting the carbs out of his diet, why fat-adaptation hasn’t become more the norm in endurance athletes, the emerging science coming from Dr. Jeff Volek’s FASTER Study, why the carb-loading science has showed positive results, how athletes get away with eating more carbohydrates than the less active population, why athletes are turning to the ketogenic approach to performance, whether you can maximize performance and optimize health at the same time, what the VESPA product is and does, the Optimized Fat Metabolism (OFM) program he uses with athletes to eat low-carb to improve performance, whether a professional sports team would buy into becoming fat-adapted, how Dr. Steve Phinney complimented Peter about his work, whether Tom Brady is tinkering with fat-adaptation, how stress is anti-ketogenic, why he can say things as an empiricist that the researchers can’t say, and what things he is observing that the research needs to be paying attention to. If you want to know about the role of ketosis in exercise performance, then this is the podcast for YOU!
