If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today.

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

997: Attorney Tony Martinez Pushing LCHF Through Public Policy And The Law

Screen Shot 2015-08-23 at 6.46.24 PM

Attorney-at-law and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet advocate Tony Martinez is our guest today in Episode 997 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

If the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message is ever going to break through into the mainstream in a big way, it very well may take some major paradigm shifts in public policy and law. That’s the passionate desire of an attorney named Tony Martinez whose life was changed after working as a legal consultant with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins and appearing on his popular radio show in the 1990’s. After suffering a heart attack and being diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic, Tony knew he needed to get serious about his health by embracing the ketogenic lifestyle in earnest. His A1c has dropped from 7 to 5.5 and his cardiologist said his heart health has completely turned around.

Listen in as Jimmy and Tony talk about how he legally consulted Dr. Atkins in the 1990’s, how he used to appear on Dr. Atkins’ radio show in New York City, how Dr. Atkins coined the term “diabesity” and got the attention of the Health & Human Services Secretary before Dr. Atkins’ untimely death, how “classy” Dr. Atkins was with a very strong character, how Dr. Atkins helped reverse his diabetes and heart disease by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, how watching Cereal Killers and reading my two books last year gave him the confidence to go ketogenic, the frustration with doctors who don’t give low-carb the proper credence, how the system is still set up for disease and obesity failure, why insurance companies aren’t more pro-low-carb, how an insurance company called Old Mutual Health sponsored an LCHF event in South Africa earlier this year, how your metabolism can become so deranged to the point that you have to cut your carbs well below the recommended levels, what could be done from a class action lawsuit level, how the Internet has helped push along the message, why getting this information translated into other languages is sorely needed, how Cuba is fascinated by the low-carb message as big lovers of pork, how it’s going to take courage from patients and medical professionals alike to change, how “the dark side of human nature” makes it difficult to change, and why sugar is the starting point in pushing for change.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

DR. JACOB WILSON ANSWERS BURNING KETO QUESTIONS

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.
