He has been in practice helping clients for the past 15 years working with professional athletes, models and busy working professionals wanting to look better and get healthy.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person’s individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

883: Dr. Kirk Parsley Implores People To Put The Proper Emphasis Back On Sleep

Former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley is our interview guest today in Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

DR. KIRK PARSLEY’S IMPASSIONED TEDX TALK ON SLEEP

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

Former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley is our interview guest today in Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

Whenever someone challenges the idea that there are concerns about the consumption of carbohydrates on health, Jimmy likes to talk to them to find out why.

Nate has an educational background in kinesiology, is a Certified Specialist in Sports Nutrition (ISSA), a Certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition (ISSA), and a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE). He has been in practice helping clients for the past 15 years working with professional athletes, models and busy working professionals wanting to look better and get healthy.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person’s individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more!

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

DR. KIRK PARSLEY’S IMPASSIONED TEDX TALK ON SLEEP

America’s biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person’s individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

You’ve heard him on his top-ranked “Smash The Fat” iTunes health podcast and he’s been a guest on this podcast a couple of times before, including in Episode 739 where he shared about his calories experiments that became the basis for his brand new book entitled Slimology: The Relatively Simple Science Of Slimming. Listen in as Jimmy and Sam discuss the contents of his book on slimming (not sliming!).

He has been in practice helping clients for the past 15 years working with professional athletes, models and busy working professionals wanting to look better and get healthy.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person’s individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more! Nate may have a slice of bread on the front cover of his book, but you’ll quickly learn he’s no fan of THAT kind of carbohydrate.

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

Former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley is our interview guest today in Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person’s individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more!

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

DR. KIRK PARSLEY’S IMPASSIONED TEDX TALK ON SLEEP

America’s biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

Whenever someone challenges the idea that there are concerns about the consumption of carbohydrates on health, Jimmy likes to talk to them to find out why.

Nate has an educational background in kinesiology, is a Certified Specialist in Sports Nutrition (ISSA), a Certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition (ISSA), and a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE). He has been in practice helping clients for the past 15 years working with professional athletes, models and busy working professionals wanting to look better and get healthy.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person’s individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more! Nate may have a slice of bread on the front cover of his book, but you’ll quickly learn he’s no fan of THAT kind of carbohydrate.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

Whenever someone challenges the idea that there are concerns about the consumption of carbohydrates on health, Jimmy likes to talk to them to find out why. So when Jimmy saw a book on Amazon by a personal training and nutrition consultant named Nate Miyaki recently, he knew he had to have him on the show for an interview. Nate has an educational background in kinesiology, is a Certified Specialist in Sports Nutrition (ISSA), a Certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition (ISSA), and a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE). He has been in practice helping clients for the past 15 years working with professional athletes, models and busy working professionals wanting to look better and get healthy.

The name of his brand new book that made it appear he was not an advocate of low-carb diets is called The Truth about Carbs: How to Eat Just the Right Amount of Carbs to Slash Fat, Look Great Naked, & Live Lean Year-Round. Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person’s individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more! Nate may have a slice of bread on the front cover of his book, but you’ll quickly learn he’s no fan of THAT kind of carbohydrate.

It’s always great to have returning interview guests who are making a real difference in the health of people. And that certainly describes three-time New York Times bestselling author, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with her in Episode 631 and Episode 377). Her books have made a difference in the lives of so many people who have embraced the healthy living principles she shares, including famous people like Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Taj George, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicole Eggert, Tracie Thoms, and “Superman” Brandon Routh. And now she’s back in 2015 with a brand new book that is already making a difference. It’s called JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet: Drop 7 Hidden Sugars, Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks and is designed to help people struggling with an inability to lose weight because of a food intolerance.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and JJ talk about why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how nobody is talking about testing your blood sugar, why the green juices and “healthy” wheat bread people are consuming is having a huge sugar impact, how fructose and glycemic load tell the story on how you respond to foods, why low-fat/no-fat almost always means more sugar, using her sugar impact quiz as a tool, how sugar is aging you, why it’s “insane” to be eating every 2-3 hours, how the calorie hypothesis has ruined the health of so many people, the best/worst 10 lists of each macronutrient in her book, how starch is hit or miss about whether it is a hidden sugar or not, why she describes how she eats as “Paleo Plus,” there’s a junk food version of virtually every diet, her crystal-clear writing style that is in-your-face, sugar is the #1 drug of choice, why she’s a fan of tapering off vs. cold turkey approach to reducing sugar impact, how quickly the cravings disappear when you remove the foods stoking the cravings, and why you don’t need to focus on your weight. JJ Virgin is a voice of reason on health that you need to be listening to. ENJOY!

883: Dr. Kirk Parsley Implores People To Put The Proper Emphasis Back On Sleep

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 7.30.21 AM

Former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley is our interview guest today in Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!
