In late February 2015, an historic conference took place in Cape Town, South Africa featuring 16 of the world’s foremost authorities on the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, including our host Jimmy Moore. Organized by Professor Tim Noakes and Karen Thomson, this was one of the world’s first events featuring the leading experts on LCHF all under one roof. We’ll be airing the audio from this event through early July and you can access the video content including the slides of these talks HERE. In case you missed the previous lectures we aired, listen to them at the official podcast website. In today’s episode, we hear from a Toronto, ON-based nephrologist and author named Dr. Jason Fung from IntensiveDietaryManagement.com who shares a lecture called “Insulin toxicity and how to treat Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.” Don’t miss these lectures from this incredible once-in-a-lifetime event last year!

1086: Dr. Jason Fung Says Controlling Insulin Is The Key To Unlocking The Obesity Code

Weight loss is so incredibly hard as anyone who has tried to make it happen can attest. Part of the problem is the way we have been treating obesity and Type 2 diabetes is almost entirely wrong. Weight gain and the development of obesity is controlled by the hormone insulin and the insulin resistance that is created from chronically elevated levels of insulin. This is something a Toronto, Ontario-based nephrologist and author named Dr. Jason Fung from IntensiveDietaryManagement.com recognized a very long time ago in treating his patients dealing with the frustration of stubborn pounds that refuse to come off. Now he has outlined the principles he uses with his own patients in a provocative new book entitled The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung discuss the concepts in his latest book while previewing their upcoming joint collaboration on the subject of fasting in late 2016 called Fasting Clarity: The Definitive Guide to Healing Your Body Through Intermittent and Extended Fasting.

1067: Dr. Bert Herring Arms You With The Power Of Appetite Correction

An out of control appetite is the nemesis of many would-be dieters with high hopes for losing weight and improving their health. But for Dr. Bert Herring, MD from BertHerring.com, he understands why people overeat and is now seeking to help patients correct this problem. Dr. Herring is best known for his book on intermittent fasting entitled The Fast-5 Diet and the Fast-5 Lifestyle (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 503). But in his latest book AC: The Power of Appetite Correction, Dr. Herring gives practical guidelines based on conversations with his “Fast-5ers” for correcting the appetite disorder that is leading to overconsumption of food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Herring talk about why he wanted to write a follow-up book to his Fast-5 program, why eating in such a way to turn down appetite is key, the tools he created to help correct the appetite, the hormones involved in appetite and why they’re not as important as you might think, how cortisol can bring on intense hunger, how stress raises cortisol which increases insulin that can make you hungry, why you should expend a little work into making your food to respect the process, how he uses the acronym AC to adjust the thermostat of your body, his thoughts on extended fasts up to 3 days long, why each person needs to customize the fast that works for them, the “dark stigma” that still exists with fasting, why he’s not a fan of fasts longer than a few days without medical supervision, when he believes it’s possible to go “too far” in your fasting efforts, nature’s natural mechanisms to control appetite in the animal kingdom, the intense pull of food advertising, how our bodies are like the Stone Age even though our culture is not, and how we the consumers are the “product” of the television commercials.

1064: Andrew Scarborough Overcomes Incurable Brain Cancer With Custom Keto

NOTE: We apologize for the moments of “noise” during the interview. Andrew used the internal microphone on his computer and he nervously slid it around as he was talking. His story was much too powerful not to share even with these sounds.

The use of ketogenic diets in the treatment of various kinds of cancers has been a hot subject within research circles for the past few years. But it’s the compelling personal stories of individuals with cancer who are in desperate circumstances feeling helpless by the conventional treatment of chemotherapy and other cancer drugs who finally find success in nutritional therapy that makes this worth taking a closer look. Last week we shared the inspiring story of an eye cancer survivor from Dublin, Ireland named Patricia Daly who implemented a ketogenic diet to help her body heal. And today we have an even more miraculous ketogenic cancer success story in a man from London, England named Andrew Scarborough from the “My Brain Cancer Story” blog who was diagnosed with an incurable brain cancer along with epilepsy. But Andrew didn’t let that stop him from researching the metabolic theory of cancer to keep his grim diagnosis at bay.

Listen in as Jimmy and Andrew talk about his graduate schooling in nutrition where he learned about ketogenic diets, the migraines he started dealing with during his master’s training, how doctors dismissed his headaches as stress-induced pain, the progression of his symptoms that first took his speech away, gave him “crushing headaches,” involuntary spasms and pressure in his head, intense pain, and then a life-threatening grand mal seizure causing him to pass out, the slightly larger than a golf ball tumor they found in his brain, why doctors didn’t immediately think it was cancer, the moment they told him that his cancer was incurable, how the doctors missing it put him at greater risk, how long they told him he had to live, how he had already actively took his carbs down and seeking to be in ketosis to control his epilepsy, how Professor Thomas Seyfried‘s book Cancer As A Metabolic Disease helped him understand ketogenic diets for cancer, the side effects he felt taking the medications and chemotherapy before he went full-on ketogenic, why he sees his epilepsy as a blessing, his preference for a non-traditional ketogenic diet, the problem he experiences with the salicylates in plant-based foods, why he is concerned about his IGF-1 levels, the micronutrients that leech out when you take epilepsy medications (including B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin D), the major shifts he made in his diet that are typical of most ketogenic diets, how he made up for the micronutrients he was missing from not eating plant matter, how he got quality organ meats and animal fats from grass-fed animals cheaply, how his neurologists were “flabbergasted” by his success in beating his brain cancer, a typical day of eating for his cancer-fighting ketogenic diet, the hyperbaric chamber therapy he is now using to help continue the healing of his brain, the Ketopet therapy for dogs with cancer funded by Quest Nutrition, the therapeutic level of blood ketones for cancer treatment, whether he uses exogenous sources of ketones, how 90 percent of his diet is fat from mostly fatty insects like wax worms, why he prefers to eat the worms raw now, the fasting protocols he has engaged in since his cancer diagnosis, and his JustGiving fundraising page for brain cancer research.
