With so much uncertainty in the scientific literature about the level of importance we should be giving to blood cholesterol, sadly that leaves patients with doubt about what they should be doing in their diet and lifestyle to mitigate their risk for cardiovascular disease. Even with the major advancements in technology from companies like Liposcience, makers of the NMR Lipoprofile particle size test, the science is still not settled on this topic. That’s why a senior software engineer, business developer, and low-carb, high-fat diet self-experimenter named Dave Feldman decided to take matters into his own hands by conducting a series of experiments eating various amounts of fat and other such factors to see what impact it would play on his lipid panel. The results he has seen doing several dozen NMR Lipoprofile tests has been nothing short of remarkable as you will hear in today’s interview. Dave set up a website for all the world to view his meticulous data (what else would you expect from an engineer?) at CholesterolCode.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dave dive deeply into what Dave refers to as the Dietary Fat Inversion theory, why the more fat he consumed the lower his LDL cholesterol went, how eating more fat leads to higher cholesterol in some hyper-responders, the direct correlation between fat intake and cholesterol levels, his Twin Diet Experiment that is currently underway with another hyper-responder, why he’s not afraid is the stated risks of high cholesterol with heart disease, why the lack of actual damage to blood vessels makes cholesterol levels irrelevant, and Jimmy’s challenge to do a fasting experiment together (that will likely happen in October/November 2016). Dave is a highly intelligent guy who understands this stuff better than most doctors and might be on to one of the biggest breakthroughs in cholesterol we’ve seen in a very long time.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

881: Dr. Eric Thorn And Marylou VanHintum Using Low-Carb Diets To Optimize Health

Cardiologist Dr. Eric Thorn and registered nurse Marylou Van Hintum are our interview guests today in Episode 881 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the most exciting developments that has been happening within the medical community over the past few years is a growing tide of healthcare providers who have become frustrated by the failure of the traditional model for medicine and are willing to look outside the box in treating their patients through nutrition and lifestyle modalities as the first option rather than so quickly turning to a prescription medication. Today’s podcast interview guests certainly fit that mold. They are an Arlington, Virginia-based cardiologist and obesity medicine physician named Dr. Eric Thorn and a real food-based registered nurse named Marylou VanHintum. Together they joined forces to open the Center for Cardio-Metabolic Health and Weight Loss in September 2012 providing medically-supervised, nutritional rehabilitation to treat metabolic syndrome, promote weight loss, reduce risk for heart disease, and improve overall quality of life. The nutritional plan they incorporated with their patients is a low-carb, high-fat diet with real, whole foods that help heal the damage that has accumulated over years, even decades, and the patients receive personalized follow-up to help them with their specific individualized needs to lose weight and get healthy.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Dr. Thorn, and Marylou share about how they came to low-carb nutrition from within the traditional medical establishment, how they came to realize how low-carb nutrition could be used as a powerful tool for promoting optimal health, why weight loss isn’t really the primary focus of their work with patients, how a cardiologist is able to talk about eating high-fat foods like bacon without getting ostracized by his colleagues, the impact of stress on your health during transitional periods in our lives (as Dr. Thorn and Marylou are currently going through parting ways but continuing their work with patients), and a whole lot more! Jimmy met these two at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) meeting a couple of years ago and this was such an intriguing discussion about the future of health and the intricate role nutrition will have to play in patient health in the coming years.
