The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

963: Dr. Malcolm Kendrick Sorts Out Medical Advice From Medical Nonsense

The current state of nutritional health research is in shambles. With all the medical advice that’s being given to patients that seems to go back and forth saying one thing is for you one day and then turning right around and stating that same thing is suddenly bad for you, what is a patient to believe? For a Scottish general practitioner named Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, he’s been observing the games that are played with the research and stands up against the way Big Medicine is manipulating the studies towards things that make the most money and not necessarily the actions that will improve the health of patients. Dr. Kendrick has released a new book about this subject entitled Doctoring Data: How to sort out medical advice from medical nonsense.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Kendrick discuss his skepticism about how the state of scientific research is a “crock,” why the bad science has been so successful at penetrating the culture, how old ideas tend to die very hard, the simple narrative that makes people understand (even if it’s wrong), how it’s so difficult for the layperson to decipher the good from the bad science, why new researchers should challenge and look for scientific dogma to discredit it, the huge problem with how research is all treated equally, we’re designed to eat mostly animals but the popular notion is that plants should be first, it’s enormously time-consuming getting bogged down by bad data, how the Dietary Guidelines are the epitome of the ramifications of bad science, the continuing problem with laypeople still being scared of cholesterol levels and turning to statins, the problems with low cholesterol levels, statins will be found to be the greatest medical disaster in the history of medicine, when you criticize the system you’re accused of being a scaremonger, if you ate no cholesterol in your diet then your body would naturally make it, the problem with cancer screening and the harm it is causing, patients like to think they are being protected by getting screened, and how patients can determine the nonsense from the valid information for their health.

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

964: Dr. Richard Jacoby Examines The Role Of Sugar In Permanent Nerve Damage

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 7.18.24 AM

Peripheral nerve surgeon and author Dr. Richard Jacoby is our guest today in Episode 964 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

The current state of nutritional health research is in shambles.

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

963: Dr. Malcolm Kendrick Sorts Out Medical Advice From Medical Nonsense

The current state of nutritional health research is in shambles. With all the medical advice that’s being given to patients that seems to go back and forth saying one thing is for you one day and then turning right around and stating that same thing is suddenly bad for you, what is a patient to believe? For a Scottish general practitioner named Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, he’s been observing the games that are played with the research and stands up against the way Big Medicine is manipulating the studies towards things that make the most money and not necessarily the actions that will improve the health of patients. Dr. Kendrick has released a new book about this subject entitled Doctoring Data: How to sort out medical advice from medical nonsense.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Kendrick discuss his skepticism about how the state of scientific research is a “crock,” why the bad science has been so successful at penetrating the culture, how old ideas tend to die very hard, the simple narrative that makes people understand (even if it’s wrong), how it’s so difficult for the layperson to decipher the good from the bad science, why new researchers should challenge and look for scientific dogma to discredit it, the huge problem with how research is all treated equally, we’re designed to eat mostly animals but the popular notion is that plants should be first, it’s enormously time-consuming getting bogged down by bad data, how the Dietary Guidelines are the epitome of the ramifications of bad science, the continuing problem with laypeople still being scared of cholesterol levels and turning to statins, the problems with low cholesterol levels, statins will be found to be the greatest medical disaster in the history of medicine, when you criticize the system you’re accused of being a scaremonger, if you ate no cholesterol in your diet then your body would naturally make it, the problem with cancer screening and the harm it is causing, patients like to think they are being protected by getting screened, and how patients can determine the nonsense from the valid information for their health.

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

Dr. Holick is a world-renowned Vitamin D expert and addresses a wide variety of topics in this special episode, including whether D2 or D3 is better, if Vitamin D is a vitamin or a hormone, what the proper dosage of Vitamin D should be, the good vs. bad brands of Vitamin D, what healthy blood levels of Vitamin D should be, whether you can get enough Vitamin D from food alone, and why in some areas being in the sun just isn’t enough. If you’re curious about Vitamin D and want to learn more about it, then you won’t want to miss this incredible LLVLC Show Classic episode featuring Jimmy’s interview with Dr. Michael Holick!

For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

963: Dr. Malcolm Kendrick Sorts Out Medical Advice From Medical Nonsense

The current state of nutritional health research is in shambles. With all the medical advice that’s being given to patients that seems to go back and forth saying one thing is for you one day and then turning right around and stating that same thing is suddenly bad for you, what is a patient to believe? For a Scottish general practitioner named Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, he’s been observing the games that are played with the research and stands up against the way Big Medicine is manipulating the studies towards things that make the most money and not necessarily the actions that will improve the health of patients. Dr. Kendrick has released a new book about this subject entitled Doctoring Data: How to sort out medical advice from medical nonsense.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Kendrick discuss his skepticism about how the state of scientific research is a “crock,” why the bad science has been so successful at penetrating the culture, how old ideas tend to die very hard, the simple narrative that makes people understand (even if it’s wrong), how it’s so difficult for the layperson to decipher the good from the bad science, why new researchers should challenge and look for scientific dogma to discredit it, the huge problem with how research is all treated equally, we’re designed to eat mostly animals but the popular notion is that plants should be first, it’s enormously time-consuming getting bogged down by bad data, how the Dietary Guidelines are the epitome of the ramifications of bad science, the continuing problem with laypeople still being scared of cholesterol levels and turning to statins, the problems with low cholesterol levels, statins will be found to be the greatest medical disaster in the history of medicine, when you criticize the system you’re accused of being a scaremonger, if you ate no cholesterol in your diet then your body would naturally make it, the problem with cancer screening and the harm it is causing, patients like to think they are being protected by getting screened, and how patients can determine the nonsense from the valid information for their health.

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

964: Dr. Richard Jacoby Examines The Role Of Sugar In Permanent Nerve Damage

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 7.18.24 AM

Peripheral nerve surgeon and author Dr. Richard Jacoby is our guest today in Episode 964 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

The current state of nutritional health research is in shambles.

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

963: Dr. Malcolm Kendrick Sorts Out Medical Advice From Medical Nonsense

The current state of nutritional health research is in shambles. With all the medical advice that’s being given to patients that seems to go back and forth saying one thing is for you one day and then turning right around and stating that same thing is suddenly bad for you, what is a patient to believe? For a Scottish general practitioner named Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, he’s been observing the games that are played with the research and stands up against the way Big Medicine is manipulating the studies towards things that make the most money and not necessarily the actions that will improve the health of patients. Dr. Kendrick has released a new book about this subject entitled Doctoring Data: How to sort out medical advice from medical nonsense.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Kendrick discuss his skepticism about how the state of scientific research is a “crock,” why the bad science has been so successful at penetrating the culture, how old ideas tend to die very hard, the simple narrative that makes people understand (even if it’s wrong), how it’s so difficult for the layperson to decipher the good from the bad science, why new researchers should challenge and look for scientific dogma to discredit it, the huge problem with how research is all treated equally, we’re designed to eat mostly animals but the popular notion is that plants should be first, it’s enormously time-consuming getting bogged down by bad data, how the Dietary Guidelines are the epitome of the ramifications of bad science, the continuing problem with laypeople still being scared of cholesterol levels and turning to statins, the problems with low cholesterol levels, statins will be found to be the greatest medical disaster in the history of medicine, when you criticize the system you’re accused of being a scaremonger, if you ate no cholesterol in your diet then your body would naturally make it, the problem with cancer screening and the harm it is causing, patients like to think they are being protected by getting screened, and how patients can determine the nonsense from the valid information for their health.

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. Today he has a fabulous conversation for you featuring a Boston University-based researcher named Dr. Michael Holick who wrote a book a few years back entitled The Vitamin D Solution: A 3-Step Strategy to Cure Our Most Common Health Problem outlining the incredible health benefits that come from proper Vitamin D levels. Dr. Holick is a world-renowned Vitamin D expert and addresses a wide variety of topics in this special episode, including whether D2 or D3 is better, if Vitamin D is a vitamin or a hormone, what the proper dosage of Vitamin D should be, the good vs. bad brands of Vitamin D, what healthy blood levels of Vitamin D should be, whether you can get enough Vitamin D from food alone, and why in some areas being in the sun just isn’t enough. If you’re curious about Vitamin D and want to learn more about it, then you won’t want to miss this incredible LLVLC Show Classic episode featuring Jimmy’s interview with Dr. Michael Holick!
