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

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

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

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

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

THE CHOLESTEROL CONUNDRUM AND ROOT CAUSE SOLUTION

http://youtu.be/fuj6nxCDBZ0

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

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

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

THE CHOLESTEROL CONUNDRUM AND ROOT CAUSE SOLUTION

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

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

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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

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

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

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

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 9.18.14 AM

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

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

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

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

THE CHOLESTEROL CONUNDRUM AND ROOT CAUSE SOLUTION

http://youtu.be/fuj6nxCDBZ0

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

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

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

THE CHOLESTEROL CONUNDRUM AND ROOT CAUSE SOLUTION

http://youtu.be/fuj6nxCDBZ0

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

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

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy. This podcast is SOLID GOLD from start to finish, so don’t miss a moment.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

839: George & Tina Pauley Share Their Experience On The 2014 Low-Carb Cruise

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 9.18.14 AM

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

836: Christopher Kelly Busting The Myths About Low-Carb Diets & Athletes

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.07.13 PM

Professional mountain biker, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner and a recent graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our interview guest today in Episode 836 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

One of the common memes put out there mostly in the Paleo community is how low-carb diets are perfect for people who are slothful and don’t do a lot of movement. But they say if you exercise just a little to the very elite level, then you had better be refueling your body with carbohydrates. But this doesn’t make any sense to pro mountain biker Christopher Kelly. After finding health through the nutritional density of a low-carb Paleo diet along with some key lab-driven functional medicine techniques, Christopher now engages in professional mountain bike races at the highest level eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. When he became frustrated by the current state of healthcare offered by conventional medicine, that’s what make him partner up with wife and food scientist Julia as well as a low-carb friendly doctor named Dr. Jamie Busch to form the new practice Nourish Balance Thrive in Berkeley, California.

Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher blow the myth that you absolutely need carbs to perform athletically, why breast feeding for mothers doesn’t require as many carbohydrates as we’ve been told, the lack of evidence that exists supporting the idea that very low-carb, ketogenic diets lead to hypothyroidism, the REAL reason why low thyroid function happens on a low-carb diet, some of the basic problems his clinic is seeing in the food diaries of their clients eating low-carb, and the self-sabotage people make putting so much stress on themselves along with a sleep deficiency that can tee-totally derail your attempts to lose weight and get healthy.
