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!

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.

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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!

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.

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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!

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.

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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!

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.

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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!

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.

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees.

Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

987: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephanie Seneff On Low-Carb Diets, Cholesterol And Obesity

Nutritional health research scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 987 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

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!

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.

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again.

While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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!

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.

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!
