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 this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

Ketogenic diet athlete, health podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Ben Greenfield is our interview guest today in Episode 826 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In the world of exercise performance and fitness competition, conventional wisdom says to eat lots of carbohydrates prior to a competition to fuel your body and to push your body to the extreme limits. This has never made sense to an Ironman triathlete named Ben Greenfield who is the host of the uber-popular “Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast. Fans of Ben will know he has a knack for providing some incredible practical, alternative information for the “weekend warrior” athlete as well as the professional, elite athlete. He’s now put together details about his philosophy in a very thick new Victory Belt Publishing book that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list entitled Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Ben talk about all the bonus book pages he offers readers on his website, why he decided to write this book, the five parts he addresses in the book including fitness, recovery, nutrition, lifestyle, and the brain, why he didn’t include other categories in the book, tricks and tips to recover faster from workouts, how to know with great accuracy whether or not your body has recovered yet, how to determine what the right mix of carbohydrate, protein, and fat are right for the individual, time-saving tips to keep your life as stress-free as possible, and a whole lot more. These two guys only barely scratch the surface of all that you get from this spectacular new book, so listen and enjoy and then go get your own copy of Beyond Training.

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 7.12.10 PM

Registered, Licensed Dietitian, health coach, blogger and podcaster Cassie Bjork is our special guest host interviewing Paleo blogger and author Michelle Tam in Episode 806 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

Listen in as Jimmy and Ben talk about all the bonus book pages he offers readers on his website, why he decided to write this book, the five parts he addresses in the book including fitness, recovery, nutrition, lifestyle, and the brain, why he didn’t include other categories in the book, tricks and tips to recover faster from workouts, how to know with great accuracy whether or not your body has recovered yet, how to determine what the right mix of carbohydrate, protein, and fat are right for the individual, time-saving tips to keep your life as stress-free as possible, and a whole lot more. These two guys only barely scratch the surface of all that you get from this spectacular new book, so listen and enjoy and then go get your own copy of Beyond Training.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

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 AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In the world of exercise performance and fitness competition, conventional wisdom says to eat lots of carbohydrates prior to a competition to fuel your body and to push your body to the extreme limits. This has never made sense to an Ironman triathlete named Ben Greenfield who is the host of the uber-popular “Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast. Fans of Ben will know he has a knack for providing some incredible practical, alternative information for the “weekend warrior” athlete as well as the professional, elite athlete. He’s now put together details about his philosophy in a very thick new Victory Belt Publishing book that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list entitled Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Ben talk about all the bonus book pages he offers readers on his website, why he decided to write this book, the five parts he addresses in the book including fitness, recovery, nutrition, lifestyle, and the brain, why he didn’t include other categories in the book, tricks and tips to recover faster from workouts, how to know with great accuracy whether or not your body has recovered yet, how to determine what the right mix of carbohydrate, protein, and fat are right for the individual, time-saving tips to keep your life as stress-free as possible, and a whole lot more. These two guys only barely scratch the surface of all that you get from this spectacular new book, so listen and enjoy and then go get your own copy of Beyond Training.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio.

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food.

Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

Functional nutrition consultant and certified CrossFit coach Terry Shanahan is our interview guest today in Episode 827 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

In the world of exercise performance and fitness competition, conventional wisdom says to eat lots of carbohydrates prior to a competition to fuel your body and to push your body to the extreme limits.

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many great people (some who are unknown to the rest of the health community) who are working in their own spheres of influence to share the message of a low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diet approach to getting healthy. One such proponent of these nutritional principles is nutrition and fitness expert Terry Shanahan from “The Shanahan Plan” who has personally used this approach himself to overcome chronic illness. Now he’s using that experience along with knowledge of how powerful nutrition can be in the lives of others to teach them through online courses simplified down into three-day chunks about how to transition over to more of a Paleo-style diet. It’s called The Paleo Transition and is being used by people desiring weight loss, those wanting improved athletic performance, and even those who have unexplained health challenges they want to try to figure out. Terry has an in with the professional sports world successfully telling them about the real food-based plan he talks about in his courses, including the star of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks named Kyle Korver.

Jimmy first heard about Terry’s work with a local chain of grocery stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area called Wohlner’s where they now have a section of their store dedicated to Paleo products and a full deli lunch that serves Paleo-friendly meals. Seriously! Terry has even managed to get a catering company to start offering Paleo options for clients that want healthier choices. Not too shabby for someone who at the age of 24 thought he was going to be dead because of an undiagnosed autoimmune/food sensitivity issue. Listen in to this incredible interview Jimmy conducted with someone you should be hearing a lot more about in the years to come.

In the world of exercise performance and fitness competition, conventional wisdom says to eat lots of carbohydrates prior to a competition to fuel your body and to push your body to the extreme limits. This has never made sense to an Ironman triathlete named Ben Greenfield who is the host of the uber-popular “Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast. Fans of Ben will know he has a knack for providing some incredible practical, alternative information for the “weekend warrior” athlete as well as the professional, elite athlete. He’s now put together details about his philosophy in a very thick new Victory Belt Publishing book that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list entitled Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Ben talk about all the bonus book pages he offers readers on his website, why he decided to write this book, the five parts he addresses in the book including fitness, recovery, nutrition, lifestyle, and the brain, why he didn’t include other categories in the book, tricks and tips to recover faster from workouts, how to know with great accuracy whether or not your body has recovered yet, how to determine what the right mix of carbohydrate, protein, and fat are right for the individual, time-saving tips to keep your life as stress-free as possible, and a whole lot more. These two guys only barely scratch the surface of all that you get from this spectacular new book, so listen and enjoy and then go get your own copy of Beyond Training.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.

In the world of exercise performance and fitness competition, conventional wisdom says to eat lots of carbohydrates prior to a competition to fuel your body and to push your body to the extreme limits. This has never made sense to an Ironman triathlete named Ben Greenfield who is the host of the uber-popular “Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast. Fans of Ben will know he has a knack for providing some incredible practical, alternative information for the “weekend warrior” athlete as well as the professional, elite athlete. He’s now put together details about his philosophy in a very thick new Victory Belt Publishing book that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list entitled Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Ben talk about all the bonus book pages he offers readers on his website, why he decided to write this book, the five parts he addresses in the book including fitness, recovery, nutrition, lifestyle, and the brain, why he didn’t include other categories in the book, tricks and tips to recover faster from workouts, how to know with great accuracy whether or not your body has recovered yet, how to determine what the right mix of carbohydrate, protein, and fat are right for the individual, time-saving tips to keep your life as stress-free as possible, and a whole lot more. These two guys only barely scratch the surface of all that you get from this spectacular new book, so listen and enjoy and then go get your own copy of Beyond Training.

806: Guest Host Cassie Bjork Interviews Michelle Tam From ‘Nom Nom Paleo’

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 7.12.10 PM

Registered, Licensed Dietitian, health coach, blogger and podcaster Cassie Bjork is our special guest host interviewing Paleo blogger and author Michelle Tam in Episode 806 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we’ve got a guest host that may be familiar to fans of Jimmy Moore’s podcast. She is Cassie Bjork from “Dietitian Cassie” and serves as Jimmy’s co-host on his Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends.” She is incredibly passionate about exposing people to healthy nutrition with real food. Through her work as Dietitian Cassie, she focuses on debunking rumors, diet myths and fads while teaching clients how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any lifestyle. Cassie is an ardent believer in using real food for optimal health and performance and strives to live a balanced lifestyle while helping others do the same.

Cassie invited on Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Michelle Tam from “Nom Nom Paleo.” In partnership with her husband, Henry Fong, Michelle developed the top-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad app as well as their new book. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found working graveyard shifts as a hospital pharmacist, chasing her two young sons around the house, or passed out cold (yes, she’s got quite the quirky sense of humor, but that’s why we love her!).

Listen in as Cassie and Michelle discuss how she balances the many important roles in her life, how she prioritizes each of those duties to stay sane through the busyness, what she feeds her kids in their school lunches, how she transitioned her kids to embrace and love the Paleo diet, the importance of being realistic and listening to your body, the critical impact of exercise on health, not falling for “Paleo Perfectionism,” her recommendations for stress management to prevent stress eating, and how the idea of treats fits into a Paleo template. And don’t miss hearing Michelle shares her kitchen staples and what she does when she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. This is a fun episode with two amazingly spectacular leaders in the Paleo/real food community.
