Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them.

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well.

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them.

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts.

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them.

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

945: Dr. Jason Fung Exposes Two Big Lies And How To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Ontario, Canada-based nephrologist, weight loss, and diabetes health expert Dr. Jason Fung is our guest today in Episode 945 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them.

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from a woman who understands the therapeutic power of the ketogenic diet named Maria Emmerich from “Maria Mind Body Health” who shares her talk about why getting into ketosis can help put you back on the right track in your weight and health. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from our host Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” who shares an entire lecture on all the various ketone bodies that are produced when you eat a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet and how to test for each of them. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!
