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

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

STORY ABOUT HOW JIMMY AND DR. WESTMAN MET
 

Today’s Keto Clarity interview is with our host Jimmy Moore reunited with his Cholesterol Clarity coauthor Dr. Eric Westman. Dr. Westman is an internist specializing in obesity medicine at the Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic in Durham, North Carolina as well as one of the world’s foremost researchers on the impact of low-carb, ketogenic diets on health. Needless to say, when Jimmy was looking to collaborate with someone on a series of books related to health, Dr. Westman was the obvious first choice. These two writing partners penned the bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? (listen to them talk about that book in Episode 43 of “Ask The Low-Carb Experts”) and they return with a tour de force on ketogenic diets that will become a must-read for anyone interested in discovering more about the benefits of being in a state of ketosis on their health. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Westman share why the information they shared in Keto Clarity is the passion of their hearts.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

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

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!
