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 an exciting interview with a Rochester, Minnesota-based veterinarian named Dr. Travis Einertson from the Heritage Pet Hospital who is a huge fan of the low-carb lifestyle.

If you’re a pet lover–especially dogs and cats–then you need to listen to this engaging conversation.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Einertson discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based “Catkins” diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky’s Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat’s blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it’s done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the “Catkins” diet is being used by his colleagues. If you’re a pet lover, then you’re gonna enjoy this LLVLC Show Classic episode today!

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

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

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.

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

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.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Einertson discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based “Catkins” diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky’s Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat’s blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it’s done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the “Catkins” diet is being used by his colleagues.

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!

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.

If you’re a pet lover–especially dogs and cats–then you need to listen to this engaging conversation.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Einertson discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based “Catkins” diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky’s Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat’s blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it’s done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the “Catkins” diet is being used by his colleagues.

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

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.

If you’re a pet lover–especially dogs and cats–then you need to listen to this engaging conversation.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Einertson discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based “Catkins” diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky’s Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat’s blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it’s done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the “Catkins” diet is being used by his colleagues.

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

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!

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

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!

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.

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

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.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Einertson discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based “Catkins” diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky’s Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat’s blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it’s done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the “Catkins” diet is being used by his colleagues.

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.

And today he has an exciting interview with a Rochester, Minnesota-based veterinarian named Dr. Travis Einertson from the Heritage Pet Hospital who is a huge fan of the low-carb lifestyle.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Einertson discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based “Catkins” diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky’s Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat’s blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it’s done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the “Catkins” diet is being used by his colleagues.

976: Mark Schatzker Says Improving Health Starts With Making Real Food Tasty

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.
