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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
– Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
– Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
– Review of ketosis
– Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
– How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS

879: Mike Sheridan Bucking The Common Wisdom On Diet And Fitness

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
– Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
– Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
– Review of ketosis
– Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
– How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS

879: Mike Sheridan Bucking The Common Wisdom On Diet And Fitness

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
– Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
– Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
– Review of ketosis
– Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
– How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS

879: Mike Sheridan Bucking The Common Wisdom On Diet And Fitness

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
– Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
– Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
– Review of ketosis
– Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
– How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS

879: Mike Sheridan Bucking The Common Wisdom On Diet And Fitness

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
– The importance of food as medicine
– Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
– Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
– Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
– Review of ketosis
– Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
– How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

879: Mike Sheridan Bucking The Common Wisdom On Diet And Fitness

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.
