For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

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

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

986: Jimmy Moore And Maria Emmerich Make Real Food Focus Of The Ketogenic Cookbook

Screen Shot 2015-07-25 at 1.53.20 PM

Bestselling author, blogger and podcaster Jimmy Moore and ketogenic nutrition expert and author Maria Emmerich are our guests today in Episode 986 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

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

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

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

986: Jimmy Moore And Maria Emmerich Make Real Food Focus Of The Ketogenic Cookbook

Screen Shot 2015-07-25 at 1.53.20 PM

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

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

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

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

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

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

978: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Emily Deans On The Impact Of Low-Carb Paleo On Mental Health

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 7.48.57 PM

Board-certified certified adult psychiatrist Dr. Emily Deans is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 978 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

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

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

986: Jimmy Moore And Maria Emmerich Make Real Food Focus Of The Ketogenic Cookbook

Screen Shot 2015-07-25 at 1.53.20 PM

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

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

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

986: Jimmy Moore And Maria Emmerich Make Real Food Focus Of The Ketogenic Cookbook

Screen Shot 2015-07-25 at 1.53.20 PM

Bestselling author, blogger and podcaster Jimmy Moore and ketogenic nutrition expert and author Maria Emmerich are our guests today in Episode 986 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.


Paleo from A to Z Book Trailer

Listen in as Jimmy and Darryl talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.
