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

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

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

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

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

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

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

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

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

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

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

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

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

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

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

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

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

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

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

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

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

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health.

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

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

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

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

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

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

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

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

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

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

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

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

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

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

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

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

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

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

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

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

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

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

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

One of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases of our day is Alzheimer’s disease. Within research circles, this condition is widely known as “Type 3 diabetes” because of the blood sugar and insulin connection to the disease. For a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition named Amy Berger, she has been very interested in the indelible relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and nutrition. What she discovered was how a real foods-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is the key to controlling high insulin levels that are leading to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. She’s written a compelling new e-book about this subject entitled The Alzheimer’s Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition And Lifestyle Strategy To Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss And Cognitive Decline and Amy and Jimmy dig deeply into this topic in today’s episode!

Listen in as Jimmy and Amy talk about how she followed all the typical nutrition advice and wasn’t seeing results, why the low-carb message doesn’t get more traction despite the overwhelming science supporting it, how scary it is to start eating more fat after years of fat-phobia, what got her interested in the subject of Alzheimer’s disease, how she made the connection between insulin, glucose, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, former podcast guest Dr. Larry McCleary called Alzheimer’s Type 3 diabetes many years ago, the mechanism about how Alzheimer’s disease develops and progresses with a high-carb diet, the ApoE 4 genotype makes you more susceptible to getting Alzheimer’s disease with a poor carb-rich diet, doctors think people with Alzheimer’s need to keep the brain active and take drugs, the drugs created to remove the amyloid plaque that doesn’t fix Alzheimer’s, why younger people are getting early onset Alzheimer’s now, how we’ve been scared away from consuming the very foods that could protect the brain, the very gradual development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the statin drugs and prescription antacids are a huge problem in neurodegenerative disease development, the story of Dr. Mary Newport treating her husband with early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why a real foods-based low-carb diet is the best way to do this, and the non-diet ways you can improve your brain health.

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