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.

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

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.

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

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.

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

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.

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

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.

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

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.

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

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.

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

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.

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.
