There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 7.22.22 PM

Board-certified gynecologist, physician-scientist, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried is our guest today in Episode 936 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Abel discuss his influence on Jimmy in getting a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 7.22.22 PM

Board-certified gynecologist, physician-scientist, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried is our guest today in Episode 936 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!
