The greatest nemesis in any given diet plan is hunger. When you are hungry, then your body starts to scream at you to feed it more food by giving you clues like hunger pangs, fatigue, and other such symptoms. But a Harvard-based pediatric endocrinologist, medical school professor, and nutritional health researcher named Dr. David Ludwig (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 403) from DrDavidLudwig.com would argue that it’s not necessarily the overeating that has made us all fat–instead, it’s getting fat that makes us overeat. This is why we are constantly fighting the desire to consume more and more to try to satisfy that persistent physical cue to eat. It’s the premise of Dr. Ludwig’s brand new New York Times bestselling Always Hungry?: Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ludwig talk about the methods that help children helps adults too, Dr. Ludwig’s 2012 “calorie is not a calorie” JAMA study, the difference in energy expenditure and weight changes with low-carb vs. low-fat diets, why an isocaloric meal comparison will produce the same weight loss results in the short term, why continuing to cut calories is problematic, the power of hunger signals and why they should not be ignored, Dr. Ludwig’s 2004 fast-acting carbs Lancet study, how the process of getting fat makes you overeat, why insulin is the Miracle Grow for fat cells, why having hunger as a good thing is a “cultural delusion,” whether continuous exposure to refined carbohydrates can make you more sensitive to all carbs, why diet order matters in the effect on your metabolism, the three phases of his plan, the modifications in the plan for people with carb sensitivity, why some people may not see results on his plan, why his plan is not a ketogenic diet, how he works backwards from his approach to Atkins to ketogenic, and how ketones are a very clean fuel for the body.

1065: Nina Teicholz Periscope Interview On The Final 2015 Dietary Guidelines

Every five years, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) convenes a panel of experts on nutrition and health called the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee to determine the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and they recently announced the latest version in force now through 2020. We’ve been following these guidelines closely hoping they would make major shifts away from the same old failed conventional wisdom that has plagued us since 1980. And when I interviewed investigative journalist Nina Teicholz, author of the New York Times bestselling book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet, about the potential changes in April 2015, she was hopeful that things would be different this time around. But in this exclusive Periscope interview (see all his daily Periscope videos at JimmyScopes.com) our host Jimmy Moore recently conducted with Nina, she shares the full details on what was put into the Dietary Guidelines.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nina talk about whether the Scientific Advisory Committee for the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are based on the latest science, the heavy influence on our culture of these guidelines, Nina’s British Medical Journal article The scientific report guiding the US dietary guidelines: is it scientific?, why they completely ignored the literature supporting the low-carbohydrate diet, the tremendous backlash she got for her BMJ article, the tiny changes that have been made to the new guidelines (limiting added sugars, alcohol and caffeine are now okay, soy milk is now recommended, and the drop on the caps on dietary cholesterol), the new look at dietary patterns instead of macronutrients (although all the science is on macros), why the low-fat diet is dead and nobody knows it, how the actual recommendations are virtually identical what they were back in 2005, Nina’s non-profit group Nutrition Coalition, the National Academy of Medicine review requirements before the 2020 Dietary Guidelines, whether the guidelines will ever get away from the government reigns, the congressional hearing that happened last Fall over these guidelines, why the guidelines are still relevant despite the criticism about them, and the legal strong-arming that is happening against low-carb diets and dietary fat.

Our host Jimmy Moore has been in the midst of a fasting experiment in the month of January (see all the details of this N=1 experiment in his daily Periscope updates at JimmyScopes.com). Prior to beginning this fast, he decided to drive two hours up I-85 from Spartanburg, South Carolina to Concord, North Carolina to see an emergency medicine and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Jeffrey Galvin, MD from Vitality Medical Wellness Institute (you may remember hearing Dr. Galvin back in Episode 604) to get a DEXA scan as a means for determining the baseline level of body fat and lean muscle mass. As Jimmy was doing a Periscope video of his DEXA scan (see below), a spontaneous interview with Dr. Galvin commenced that ran the gamut on a wide variety of health topics that was just too compelling not to share with you the listeners of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!


https://vimeo.com/150435615

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Galvin discuss the results of Jimmy’s DEXA scan measuring body fat and lean muscle mass, how much a DEXA scan costs and where you can get one done, why he believes Jimmy will lose a lot of muscle on his January fast, his concerns with low-protein liquid diets, why he doesn’t care about what a patient’s weight is, how mainstream medicine is starting to get the diet and lifestyle connection to disease, why mainstream medicine is currently failing at helping their patients get better, the lack of knowledge about the importance of thyroid health, why Metformin may be the first life-extension drug, the electrolytes concern he has about an extended fast, whether you can sense an arrhythmia coming on, how people can find doctors like him in their area, how he tries to determine what his patients want in their health goals, why his “normal” ranges on health tests is radically different from conventional levels, how lifestyle is the stool he seeks to optimize for his patients, why he’s not a perfectionist for his patients to be 100% strict, how you can’t get ketoacidosis eating a low-carb, kegogenic diet, and the connection between dementia/Alzheimer’s disease (Type 3 diabetes) and insulin resistance. This was quite the compelling interview that we knew you’d love to hear!

1060: Professor Grant Schofield Asks What The Fat Is Going On In Nutrition

Auckland, New Zealand-based professor of public health, researcher, and author Professor Grant Schofield is our interview guest today in Episode 1060 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Fat is making a pretty major comeback of sorts over the past couple of years as more and more people are finally realizing we’ve been sold a big fat lie about how harmful it is to our health. And for a respected PhD public health academic for the past two decades hailing from Auckland, New Zealand known as “The Fat Professor,” the time is now to take this message to the masses in a big way. His name is Professor Grant Schofield from ProfGrant.com and he has authored a brand new whimsically-titled book on this subject entitled What the Fat?: Fat’s IN: Sugar’s OUT Practical guide and recipes (learn more about it at WhatTheFatBook.com).

Listen in as Jimmy and Grant talk about how the subtitle of Cholesterol Clarity inspired the title of his book, why he never intended to get involved in nutritional health, how he used to believe that health was all about exercise, why he believes the calories in/calories out hypothesis is “ridiculous,” how exercise performance is enhanced on a low-carb, high-fat diet, how Professor Tim Noakes in South Africa has been such an inspiration, the cognitive dissonance he and others in the exercise world had about nutrition, the sketchy world of nutritional health research, the health star rating system being used in Australia and New Zealand (demonizing butter still while pushing flavored milk as healthy), how the latest New Zealand Dietary Guidelines specifically target low-carb, Paleo, and intermittent fasting as being too dangerous for people to do, why it’s a no-brainer to remove carbohydrates as part of a healthy diet for diabetes and obesity, whether the fight to make change happen is worth it, the healthy living principles that should go along with LCHF, why we need to let kids get back to being kids again with play, how even adults forget about the importance of playing, and the importance of people doing more N=1 experiments to progress the message forward. This is a critically important interview you’ll want to listen to and share.
