Have you ever stopped to wonder why some people are able to fully latch on to a lifestyle change to produce amazing results in their weight and health while others seems to lack that internal fire and motivation to make it happen for themselves? What is the difference between those who succeed and those who remain mired in the mediocrity of their current habits? This is something that is not really talked about a lot in the Paleo, primal, and low-carb communities and yet Roseville, California-based clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau, PhD identifies this as the “vital missing ingredient” in the ability of the health community to bring about real paradigm-shifting change on a massive scale. As a certified yoga teacher who integrates specific mind-body techniques from her training as a psychotherapist, Melissa has found those principles can help people make the changes they sincerely desire to make which she has outlined in her new book The Yoga of Food: Wellness from the Inside Out.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Melissa dig deeper into why certain people change but most people don’t, her own healing that took place using a Paleo diet, the deep attachment she felt to foods and why she was reluctant to shift her eating to a better way, why the Paleo community needs to do more than pay lip service to meditation and lifestyle, why any lasting change needs to happen in the mind before it happens in the body, the courage it takes to question your conditioning towards eating a certain way, why we all need a crisis in our lives to wake us up to change, the negative role anxiety plays on our lifestyle and eating habits, why people have a hard time giving up their so-called “comfort foods,” how Paleo and yoga can work in unison, why so many people who are into yoga eat a vegan diet, the intimidation factor of the online health community to people in the modern food culture, how to make the message of change more palatable to the general public, and a whole lot more. This conversation gets pretty deep at moments, but it’s something we definitely need to be talking a whole lot more about as the health message we are promoting becomes more and more mainstream.

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 7.58.03 AM

Retired family medicine physician Dr. Ken Peters and his enthusiastic wife Peggy Holloway are our interview guests today in Episode 885 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

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!).

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

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!).

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

887: Melissa Grabau Says Paleo Has A Vital Missing Ingredient For Lasting Success

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 6.45.33 AM

Licensed clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau is our interview guest today in Episode 887 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Have you ever stopped to wonder why some people are able to fully latch on to a lifestyle change to produce amazing results in their weight and health while others seems to lack that internal fire and motivation to make it happen for themselves? What is the difference between those who succeed and those who remain mired in the mediocrity of their current habits? This is something that is not really talked about a lot in the Paleo, primal, and low-carb communities and yet Roseville, California-based clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau, PhD identifies this as the “vital missing ingredient” in the ability of the health community to bring about real paradigm-shifting change on a massive scale. As a certified yoga teacher who integrates specific mind-body techniques from her training as a psychotherapist, Melissa has found those principles can help people make the changes they sincerely desire to make which she has outlined in her new book The Yoga of Food: Wellness from the Inside Out.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Melissa dig deeper into why certain people change but most people don’t, her own healing that took place using a Paleo diet, the deep attachment she felt to foods and why she was reluctant to shift her eating to a better way, why the Paleo community needs to do more than pay lip service to meditation and lifestyle, why any lasting change needs to happen in the mind before it happens in the body, the courage it takes to question your conditioning towards eating a certain way, why we all need a crisis in our lives to wake us up to change, the negative role anxiety plays on our lifestyle and eating habits, why people have a hard time giving up their so-called “comfort foods,” how Paleo and yoga can work in unison, why so many people who are into yoga eat a vegan diet, the intimidation factor of the online health community to people in the modern food culture, how to make the message of change more palatable to the general public, and a whole lot more. This conversation gets pretty deep at moments, but it’s something we definitely need to be talking a whole lot more about as the health message we are promoting becomes more and more mainstream.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

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!).

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

887: Melissa Grabau Says Paleo Has A Vital Missing Ingredient For Lasting Success

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 6.45.33 AM

Licensed clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau is our interview guest today in Episode 887 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Have you ever stopped to wonder why some people are able to fully latch on to a lifestyle change to produce amazing results in their weight and health while others seems to lack that internal fire and motivation to make it happen for themselves? What is the difference between those who succeed and those who remain mired in the mediocrity of their current habits? This is something that is not really talked about a lot in the Paleo, primal, and low-carb communities and yet Roseville, California-based clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau, PhD identifies this as the “vital missing ingredient” in the ability of the health community to bring about real paradigm-shifting change on a massive scale. As a certified yoga teacher who integrates specific mind-body techniques from her training as a psychotherapist, Melissa has found those principles can help people make the changes they sincerely desire to make which she has outlined in her new book The Yoga of Food: Wellness from the Inside Out.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Melissa dig deeper into why certain people change but most people don’t, her own healing that took place using a Paleo diet, the deep attachment she felt to foods and why she was reluctant to shift her eating to a better way, why the Paleo community needs to do more than pay lip service to meditation and lifestyle, why any lasting change needs to happen in the mind before it happens in the body, the courage it takes to question your conditioning towards eating a certain way, why we all need a crisis in our lives to wake us up to change, the negative role anxiety plays on our lifestyle and eating habits, why people have a hard time giving up their so-called “comfort foods,” how Paleo and yoga can work in unison, why so many people who are into yoga eat a vegan diet, the intimidation factor of the online health community to people in the modern food culture, how to make the message of change more palatable to the general public, and a whole lot more. This conversation gets pretty deep at moments, but it’s something we definitely need to be talking a whole lot more about as the health message we are promoting becomes more and more mainstream.

885: Dr. Ken Peters And Peggy Holloway Are Active Seniors On Fire For Keto

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 7.58.03 AM

Retired family medicine physician Dr. Ken Peters and his enthusiastic wife Peggy Holloway are our interview guests today in Episode 885 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review).

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!).

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

887: Melissa Grabau Says Paleo Has A Vital Missing Ingredient For Lasting Success

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 6.45.33 AM

Licensed clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau is our interview guest today in Episode 887 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Have you ever stopped to wonder why some people are able to fully latch on to a lifestyle change to produce amazing results in their weight and health while others seems to lack that internal fire and motivation to make it happen for themselves? What is the difference between those who succeed and those who remain mired in the mediocrity of their current habits? This is something that is not really talked about a lot in the Paleo, primal, and low-carb communities and yet Roseville, California-based clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau, PhD identifies this as the “vital missing ingredient” in the ability of the health community to bring about real paradigm-shifting change on a massive scale. As a certified yoga teacher who integrates specific mind-body techniques from her training as a psychotherapist, Melissa has found those principles can help people make the changes they sincerely desire to make which she has outlined in her new book The Yoga of Food: Wellness from the Inside Out.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Melissa dig deeper into why certain people change but most people don’t, her own healing that took place using a Paleo diet, the deep attachment she felt to foods and why she was reluctant to shift her eating to a better way, why the Paleo community needs to do more than pay lip service to meditation and lifestyle, why any lasting change needs to happen in the mind before it happens in the body, the courage it takes to question your conditioning towards eating a certain way, why we all need a crisis in our lives to wake us up to change, the negative role anxiety plays on our lifestyle and eating habits, why people have a hard time giving up their so-called “comfort foods,” how Paleo and yoga can work in unison, why so many people who are into yoga eat a vegan diet, the intimidation factor of the online health community to people in the modern food culture, how to make the message of change more palatable to the general public, and a whole lot more. This conversation gets pretty deep at moments, but it’s something we definitely need to be talking a whole lot more about as the health message we are promoting becomes more and more mainstream.

885: Dr. Ken Peters And Peggy Holloway Are Active Seniors On Fire For Keto

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 7.58.03 AM

Retired family medicine physician Dr. Ken Peters and his enthusiastic wife Peggy Holloway are our interview guests today in Episode 885 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

887: Melissa Grabau Says Paleo Has A Vital Missing Ingredient For Lasting Success

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 6.45.33 AM

Licensed clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau is our interview guest today in Episode 887 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Have you ever stopped to wonder why some people are able to fully latch on to a lifestyle change to produce amazing results in their weight and health while others seems to lack that internal fire and motivation to make it happen for themselves? What is the difference between those who succeed and those who remain mired in the mediocrity of their current habits? This is something that is not really talked about a lot in the Paleo, primal, and low-carb communities and yet Roseville, California-based clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau, PhD identifies this as the “vital missing ingredient” in the ability of the health community to bring about real paradigm-shifting change on a massive scale. As a certified yoga teacher who integrates specific mind-body techniques from her training as a psychotherapist, Melissa has found those principles can help people make the changes they sincerely desire to make which she has outlined in her new book The Yoga of Food: Wellness from the Inside Out.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Melissa dig deeper into why certain people change but most people don’t, her own healing that took place using a Paleo diet, the deep attachment she felt to foods and why she was reluctant to shift her eating to a better way, why the Paleo community needs to do more than pay lip service to meditation and lifestyle, why any lasting change needs to happen in the mind before it happens in the body, the courage it takes to question your conditioning towards eating a certain way, why we all need a crisis in our lives to wake us up to change, the negative role anxiety plays on our lifestyle and eating habits, why people have a hard time giving up their so-called “comfort foods,” how Paleo and yoga can work in unison, why so many people who are into yoga eat a vegan diet, the intimidation factor of the online health community to people in the modern food culture, how to make the message of change more palatable to the general public, and a whole lot more. This conversation gets pretty deep at moments, but it’s something we definitely need to be talking a whole lot more about as the health message we are promoting becomes more and more mainstream.

885: Dr. Ken Peters And Peggy Holloway Are Active Seniors On Fire For Keto

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 7.58.03 AM

Retired family medicine physician Dr. Ken Peters and his enthusiastic wife Peggy Holloway are our interview guests today in Episode 885 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

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!).

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Melissa dig deeper into why certain people change but most people don’t, her own healing that took place using a Paleo diet, the deep attachment she felt to foods and why she was reluctant to shift her eating to a better way, why the Paleo community needs to do more than pay lip service to meditation and lifestyle, why any lasting change needs to happen in the mind before it happens in the body, the courage it takes to question your conditioning towards eating a certain way, why we all need a crisis in our lives to wake us up to change, the negative role anxiety plays on our lifestyle and eating habits, why people have a hard time giving up their so-called “comfort foods,” how Paleo and yoga can work in unison, why so many people who are into yoga eat a vegan diet, the intimidation factor of the online health community to people in the modern food culture, how to make the message of change more palatable to the general public, and a whole lot more. This conversation gets pretty deep at moments, but it’s something we definitely need to be talking a whole lot more about as the health message we are promoting becomes more and more mainstream.

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 7.58.03 AM

Retired family medicine physician Dr. Ken Peters and his enthusiastic wife Peggy Holloway are our interview guests today in Episode 885 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today’s interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors–Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61–who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can’t shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

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!).

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

887: Melissa Grabau Says Paleo Has A Vital Missing Ingredient For Lasting Success

Have you ever stopped to wonder why some people are able to fully latch on to a lifestyle change to produce amazing results in their weight and health while others seems to lack that internal fire and motivation to make it happen for themselves?

After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy’s Friday podcast “Low-Carb Conversations” in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you’ve got it! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

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!).

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

887: Melissa Grabau Says Paleo Has A Vital Missing Ingredient For Lasting Success

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 6.45.33 AM

Licensed clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau is our interview guest today in Episode 887 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Have you ever stopped to wonder why some people are able to fully latch on to a lifestyle change to produce amazing results in their weight and health while others seems to lack that internal fire and motivation to make it happen for themselves? What is the difference between those who succeed and those who remain mired in the mediocrity of their current habits? This is something that is not really talked about a lot in the Paleo, primal, and low-carb communities and yet Roseville, California-based clinical psychologist Melissa Grabau, PhD identifies this as the “vital missing ingredient” in the ability of the health community to bring about real paradigm-shifting change on a massive scale. As a certified yoga teacher who integrates specific mind-body techniques from her training as a psychotherapist, Melissa has found those principles can help people make the changes they sincerely desire to make which she has outlined in her new book The Yoga of Food: Wellness from the Inside Out.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Melissa dig deeper into why certain people change but most people don’t, her own healing that took place using a Paleo diet, the deep attachment she felt to foods and why she was reluctant to shift her eating to a better way, why the Paleo community needs to do more than pay lip service to meditation and lifestyle, why any lasting change needs to happen in the mind before it happens in the body, the courage it takes to question your conditioning towards eating a certain way, why we all need a crisis in our lives to wake us up to change, the negative role anxiety plays on our lifestyle and eating habits, why people have a hard time giving up their so-called “comfort foods,” how Paleo and yoga can work in unison, why so many people who are into yoga eat a vegan diet, the intimidation factor of the online health community to people in the modern food culture, how to make the message of change more palatable to the general public, and a whole lot more. This conversation gets pretty deep at moments, but it’s something we definitely need to be talking a whole lot more about as the health message we are promoting becomes more and more mainstream.

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together?
