With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means–it’s time for yet another LLVLC Show Classic episode featuring some amazing audio from many moons ago on this podcast. This is the special feature we’re running here while Jimmy Moore is away writing over the next few months on his next book Keto Clarity set for release on August 5, 2014. Today’s very special guest is one of the most highly-respected names in the traditional health community. He is Chris Masterjohn, PhD from Cholesterol-And-Health.com and he has been out there for many years representing the nutritional edicts of The Weston A. Price Foundation (and Dr. Price’s classic health book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration) and the health benefits that come from consuming the foods that were commonplace in traditional cultures. He is one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject of cholesterol (which is why Jimmy quoted him extensively throughout Cholesterol Clarity) and is now working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign studying interactions between vitamins A, D, and K. Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode to hear how skilled he is at communicating some truly incredible information about a very difficult topic. Marvel at the wonder of this whiz kid who will be making contributions that will make us healthier for many years to come!

When you think about the “biggie” people who helped build momentum for and grow this alternative nutritional health community that falls under the umbrella of low-carb, Paleo, primal, ancestral, Weston A. Price Foundation, and real food living, only a handful of names readily come to mind–Dr. Robert Atkins, Robb Wolf, Dr. Art DeVany, Dr. Loren Cordain, Sally Fallon Morrell and many more. But in today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’ve got one of the most intriguing, prolifically knowledgeable, and perhaps the one person who provides real world practicality for making this lifestyle change stick. He is, of course, none other than the great Mark Sisson from “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog. He’s the author of the #1 Amazon.com bestselling book that outlines the basic premise of what he teaches about diet and health entitled The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy and has released many others in the years that have followed. Listen in to this incredible triple-header worth of interviews from deep within our archives to the very first time Jimmy ever interviewed Mark who was promoting a “primal” concept with his Grok character, the debut release of his Primal Blueprint book, and his invitation back on the show for another interview as part of Encore Week.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means–it’s time for yet another LLVLC Show Classic episode featuring some amazing audio from many moons ago on this podcast. This is the special feature we’re running here while Jimmy Moore is away writing over the next few months on his next book Keto Clarity set for release on August 5, 2014. Today’s very special guest is one of the most highly-respected names in the traditional health community. He is Chris Masterjohn, PhD from Cholesterol-And-Health.com and he has been out there for many years representing the nutritional edicts of The Weston A. Price Foundation (and Dr. Price’s classic health book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration) and the health benefits that come from consuming the foods that were commonplace in traditional cultures. He is one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject of cholesterol (which is why Jimmy quoted him extensively throughout Cholesterol Clarity) and is now working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign studying interactions between vitamins A, D, and K. Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode to hear how skilled he is at communicating some truly incredible information about a very difficult topic. Marvel at the wonder of this whiz kid who will be making contributions that will make us healthier for many years to come!

When you think about the “biggie” people who helped build momentum for and grow this alternative nutritional health community that falls under the umbrella of low-carb, Paleo, primal, ancestral, Weston A. Price Foundation, and real food living, only a handful of names readily come to mind–Dr. Robert Atkins, Robb Wolf, Dr. Art DeVany, Dr. Loren Cordain, Sally Fallon Morrell and many more. But in today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’ve got one of the most intriguing, prolifically knowledgeable, and perhaps the one person who provides real world practicality for making this lifestyle change stick. He is, of course, none other than the great Mark Sisson from “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog. He’s the author of the #1 Amazon.com bestselling book that outlines the basic premise of what he teaches about diet and health entitled The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy and has released many others in the years that have followed. Listen in to this incredible triple-header worth of interviews from deep within our archives to the very first time Jimmy ever interviewed Mark who was promoting a “primal” concept with his Grok character, the debut release of his Primal Blueprint book, and his invitation back on the show for another interview as part of Encore Week. Strap in tight today because we’ve got a marathon episode to share with you from one of the best of the best in the world of health!

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

When you think about the “biggie” people who helped build momentum for and grow this alternative nutritional health community that falls under the umbrella of low-carb, Paleo, primal, ancestral, Weston A. Price Foundation, and real food living, only a handful of names readily come to mind–Dr. Robert Atkins, Robb Wolf, Dr. Art DeVany, Dr. Loren Cordain, Sally Fallon Morrell and many more. But in today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’ve got one of the most intriguing, prolifically knowledgeable, and perhaps the one person who provides real world practicality for making this lifestyle change stick. He is, of course, none other than the great Mark Sisson from “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog. He’s the author of the #1 Amazon.com bestselling book that outlines the basic premise of what he teaches about diet and health entitled The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy and has released many others in the years that have followed. Listen in to this incredible triple-header worth of interviews from deep within our archives to the very first time Jimmy ever interviewed Mark who was promoting a “primal” concept with his Grok character, the debut release of his Primal Blueprint book, and his invitation back on the show for another interview as part of Encore Week. Strap in tight today because we’ve got a marathon episode to share with you from one of the best of the best in the world of health!

Listen in to hear Jimmy’s first exposure to the work Nora has been doing and continues to do so well to this day.

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

And today we feature two outstanding back-to-back interviews with one of the leading voices in the Paleo, primal and low-carb movement in Portland, OR-based board-certified nutritional consultant and board-certified clinical neurofeedback specialist Nora Gedgaudas from “Primal Body-Primal Mind”, author of the seminal nutritional health book Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life. Listen in to hear Jimmy’s first exposure to the work Nora has been doing and continues to do so well to this day.

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means–it’s time for yet another LLVLC Show Classic episode featuring some amazing audio from many moons ago on this podcast. This is the special feature we’re running here while Jimmy Moore is away writing over the next few months on his next book Keto Clarity set for release on August 5, 2014. Today’s very special guest is one of the most highly-respected names in the traditional health community. He is Chris Masterjohn, PhD from Cholesterol-And-Health.com and he has been out there for many years representing the nutritional edicts of The Weston A. Price Foundation (and Dr. Price’s classic health book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration) and the health benefits that come from consuming the foods that were commonplace in traditional cultures. He is one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject of cholesterol (which is why Jimmy quoted him extensively throughout Cholesterol Clarity) and is now working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign studying interactions between vitamins A, D, and K. Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode to hear how skilled he is at communicating some truly incredible information about a very difficult topic. Marvel at the wonder of this whiz kid who will be making contributions that will make us healthier for many years to come!

When you think about the “biggie” people who helped build momentum for and grow this alternative nutritional health community that falls under the umbrella of low-carb, Paleo, primal, ancestral, Weston A. Price Foundation, and real food living, only a handful of names readily come to mind–Dr. Robert Atkins, Robb Wolf, Dr. Art DeVany, Dr. Loren Cordain, Sally Fallon Morrell and many more. But in today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’ve got one of the most intriguing, prolifically knowledgeable, and perhaps the one person who provides real world practicality for making this lifestyle change stick. He is, of course, none other than the great Mark Sisson from “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog. He’s the author of the #1 Amazon.com bestselling book that outlines the basic premise of what he teaches about diet and health entitled The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy and has released many others in the years that have followed. Listen in to this incredible triple-header worth of interviews from deep within our archives to the very first time Jimmy ever interviewed Mark who was promoting a “primal” concept with his Grok character, the debut release of his Primal Blueprint book, and his invitation back on the show for another interview as part of Encore Week. Strap in tight today because we’ve got a marathon episode to share with you from one of the best of the best in the world of health!

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means–it’s time for yet another LLVLC Show Classic episode featuring some amazing audio from many moons ago on this podcast. This is the special feature we’re running here while Jimmy Moore is away writing over the next few months on his next book Keto Clarity set for release on August 5, 2014. Today’s very special guest is one of the most highly-respected names in the traditional health community. He is Chris Masterjohn, PhD from Cholesterol-And-Health.com and he has been out there for many years representing the nutritional edicts of The Weston A. Price Foundation (and Dr. Price’s classic health book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration) and the health benefits that come from consuming the foods that were commonplace in traditional cultures. He is one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject of cholesterol (which is why Jimmy quoted him extensively throughout Cholesterol Clarity) and is now working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign studying interactions between vitamins A, D, and K. Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode to hear how skilled he is at communicating some truly incredible information about a very difficult topic. Marvel at the wonder of this whiz kid who will be making contributions that will make us healthier for many years to come!

When you think about the “biggie” people who helped build momentum for and grow this alternative nutritional health community that falls under the umbrella of low-carb, Paleo, primal, ancestral, Weston A. Price Foundation, and real food living, only a handful of names readily come to mind–Dr. Robert Atkins, Robb Wolf, Dr. Art DeVany, Dr. Loren Cordain, Sally Fallon Morrell and many more. But in today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’ve got one of the most intriguing, prolifically knowledgeable, and perhaps the one person who provides real world practicality for making this lifestyle change stick. He is, of course, none other than the great Mark Sisson from “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog. He’s the author of the #1 Amazon.com bestselling book that outlines the basic premise of what he teaches about diet and health entitled The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy and has released many others in the years that have followed. Listen in to this incredible triple-header worth of interviews from deep within our archives to the very first time Jimmy ever interviewed Mark who was promoting a “primal” concept with his Grok character, the debut release of his Primal Blueprint book, and his invitation back on the show for another interview as part of Encore Week. Strap in tight today because we’ve got a marathon episode to share with you from one of the best of the best in the world of health!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means–it’s time for yet another LLVLC Show Classic episode featuring some amazing audio from many moons ago on this podcast. This is the special feature we’re running here while Jimmy Moore is away writing over the next few months on his next book Keto Clarity set for release on August 5, 2014. Today’s very special guest is one of the most highly-respected names in the traditional health community. He is Chris Masterjohn, PhD from Cholesterol-And-Health.com and he has been out there for many years representing the nutritional edicts of The Weston A. Price Foundation (and Dr. Price’s classic health book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration) and the health benefits that come from consuming the foods that were commonplace in traditional cultures. He is one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject of cholesterol (which is why Jimmy quoted him extensively throughout Cholesterol Clarity) and is now working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign studying interactions between vitamins A, D, and K. Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode to hear how skilled he is at communicating some truly incredible information about a very difficult topic. Marvel at the wonder of this whiz kid who will be making contributions that will make us healthier for many years to come!

When you think about the “biggie” people who helped build momentum for and grow this alternative nutritional health community that falls under the umbrella of low-carb, Paleo, primal, ancestral, Weston A. Price Foundation, and real food living, only a handful of names readily come to mind–Dr. Robert Atkins, Robb Wolf, Dr. Art DeVany, Dr. Loren Cordain, Sally Fallon Morrell and many more. But in today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’ve got one of the most intriguing, prolifically knowledgeable, and perhaps the one person who provides real world practicality for making this lifestyle change stick. He is, of course, none other than the great Mark Sisson from “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog. He’s the author of the #1 Amazon.com bestselling book that outlines the basic premise of what he teaches about diet and health entitled The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy and has released many others in the years that have followed. Listen in to this incredible triple-header worth of interviews from deep within our archives to the very first time Jimmy ever interviewed Mark who was promoting a “primal” concept with his Grok character, the debut release of his Primal Blueprint book, and his invitation back on the show for another interview as part of Encore Week. Strap in tight today because we’ve got a marathon episode to share with you from one of the best of the best in the world of health!

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

When you think about the “biggie” people who helped build momentum for and grow this alternative nutritional health community that falls under the umbrella of low-carb, Paleo, primal, ancestral, Weston A. Price Foundation, and real food living, only a handful of names readily come to mind–Dr. Robert Atkins, Robb Wolf, Dr. Art DeVany, Dr. Loren Cordain, Sally Fallon Morrell and many more. But in today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’ve got one of the most intriguing, prolifically knowledgeable, and perhaps the one person who provides real world practicality for making this lifestyle change stick. He is, of course, none other than the great Mark Sisson from “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog. He’s the author of the #1 Amazon.com bestselling book that outlines the basic premise of what he teaches about diet and health entitled The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy and has released many others in the years that have followed. Listen in to this incredible triple-header worth of interviews from deep within our archives to the very first time Jimmy ever interviewed Mark who was promoting a “primal” concept with his Grok character, the debut release of his Primal Blueprint book, and his invitation back on the show for another interview as part of Encore Week.

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

Endurance sports writer, certified sports nutritionist, and author Matt Fitzgerald is our interview guest today in Episode 824 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.
