In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

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

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 3.29.02 PM

Scottish general practitioner, medical research skeptic, and author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is our guest today in Episode 963 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

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

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

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

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

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

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

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

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

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

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

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.49.44 PM

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 975 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.49.44 PM

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 975 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 3.29.02 PM

Scottish general practitioner, medical research skeptic, and author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is our guest today in Episode 963 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 3.29.02 PM

Scottish general practitioner, medical research skeptic, and author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is our guest today in Episode 963 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

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

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

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

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

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

Scottish general practitioner, medical research skeptic, and author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is our guest today in Episode 963 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

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

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

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.49.44 PM

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 975 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

975: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Art Ayers Was Discussing Gut Health Before It Was In Vogue

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 5.49.44 PM

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 975 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has a truly fascinating one featuring Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biologist, gut health specialist, and nutritional health blogger Dr. Art Ayers from the “Cooling Inflammation” blog. Everyday we are learning more and more about the negative impact chronic inflammation has on our bodies and how making even small changes in our diet and exercise routine can bring about big changes to significantly reduce this inflammation. Dr. Ayers has long dove deeply into the inner workings of the importance of gut bacteria even before it became as popular as it is in 2015. Everybody seems to be sharing information about the gut microbiota and things like fecal transplants nowadays, but Dr. Ayers has been all over this topic before it was in vogue.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ayers share his unique perspective on a healthy diet, the “long story” of how he got interested in biology, why his arduous research life led him to a less stressful teaching career, how he came across carbohydrates and inflammation as part of the disease picture, why more people don’t know about what inflammation is, why diet change is the “big fix for health care” that is sorely needed, the “big issue” of agribusiness pushing vegetable oils over saturated fats, how carbohydrate consumption exacerbates inflammation, the benign role of saturated fat in inflammation (why it’s the “safest” food to eat), what are the “safe” saturated fats people should be consuming, his recommended foods to consume on his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why fish oil is a better source of omega-3 fats as flax oil, the “general purpose” aspects of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet, why Vitamin D is a critical part of improving health, how Vitamin D produced in the skin can be compromised, why chronic inflammation can prevent Vitamin D from being properly absorbed, his examination of the relationship between inflammation and most diseases, why fish and a “good steak” are a fantastic meal to combat inflammation, why antioxidants in plants are unimportant, but the other phytonutrients they have are, how we “underestimate” the importance of cultivating gut flora, whether there’s a distinction between eating grass-fed vs. grain-fed meats, why cows have to take antibiotics after they consume a grain-based diet, how antibiotics are a kind of “surgery” that leads to other side effects, what people can do to balance the bacteria in their gut, how the bacteria in milk controls the development of the immune system in babies, the negative implications of using formula over breast milk on infants, how to “easily cure and eliminate” lactose and pretty much any food intolerance, why our super-clean hygiene habits are actually making us sicker, not healthier, why you don’t want to have sterile surfaces and bacteria-free environments, how more people don’t become sick from a food-borne pathogen, the two easy tests that will determine how balanced your gut flora is, why people so readily believe that “clean is better,” the “fecal transplants” that have taken place between obese and lean people, how replacing fecal matter mixed in a blender (EWWW!) can cure disease, the preventative aspect of keep healthcare costs controlled, his dream of seeing a collaboration of bloggers examine the President’s diet daily, the concern with the starch/sugar in the American diet impacting gut flora, and why he states the practice of “medicine is very far from being scientific.” Don’t miss this fascinating LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

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

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 3.29.02 PM

Scottish general practitioner, medical research skeptic, and author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is our guest today in Episode 963 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

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

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

So on Tuesdays, he’s inviting on various guest hosts to fill in for him while he gets some much-needed rest and relaxation. Today he invited on two of his favorite people from the Paleo community in Stefani Ruper from “Paleo For Women”, author of Sexy by Nature: The Whole Foods Solution to Radiant Health, Life-Long Sex Appeal, and Soaring Confidence, and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Noelle Tarr from “Coconuts And Kettlebells” who together host their own amazing iTunes health podcast called The Paleo Women Podcast. Listen in as Stefani and Noelle share a rip-roaring good time discussing weight loss struggles, why what you eat is more important than how much exercise you engage in, their thoughts on skipping breakfast, why some people seem to have naturally “heavier” bodies, and so much more! If you’re not already familiar with the honest, no-holds-barred approach that Stefani and Noelle share on their own podcast, then you’re in for a real treat.

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 3.29.02 PM

Scottish general practitioner, medical research skeptic, and author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is our guest today in Episode 963 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

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

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

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.
