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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

As the growth of the Paleo movement has risen at an astronomical rate over the past few years, it’s difficult to ignore the things that have contributed to this–a string of New York Times bestselling books, a passionate and enthusiastic group of bloggers and podcasters, and a singular annual event that takes place in Austin, Texas called Paleo f(x). And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence. Keith and Michelle Norris were inspired to bring together the passionate members of the community to fellowship, learn, and have fun with each other in beautiful Austin, Texas. And the April 24-26, 2015 event is set to be bigger and better than any of the previous events they’ve ever done!

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Type 1 diabetic and grain-free, ketogenic business owner Katie Coleman is our guest today in Episode 928 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE.

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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

As the growth of the Paleo movement has risen at an astronomical rate over the past few years, it’s difficult to ignore the things that have contributed to this–a string of New York Times bestselling books, a passionate and enthusiastic group of bloggers and podcasters, and a singular annual event that takes place in Austin, Texas called Paleo f(x). And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence. Keith and Michelle Norris were inspired to bring together the passionate members of the community to fellowship, learn, and have fun with each other in beautiful Austin, Texas. And the April 24-26, 2015 event is set to be bigger and better than any of the previous events they’ve ever done!

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE.

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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

As the growth of the Paleo movement has risen at an astronomical rate over the past few years, it’s difficult to ignore the things that have contributed to this–a string of New York Times bestselling books, a passionate and enthusiastic group of bloggers and podcasters, and a singular annual event that takes place in Austin, Texas called Paleo f(x). And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence. Keith and Michelle Norris were inspired to bring together the passionate members of the community to fellowship, learn, and have fun with each other in beautiful Austin, Texas. And the April 24-26, 2015 event is set to be bigger and better than any of the previous events they’ve ever done!

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE.

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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

As the growth of the Paleo movement has risen at an astronomical rate over the past few years, it’s difficult to ignore the things that have contributed to this–a string of New York Times bestselling books, a passionate and enthusiastic group of bloggers and podcasters, and a singular annual event that takes place in Austin, Texas called Paleo f(x). And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence. Keith and Michelle Norris were inspired to bring together the passionate members of the community to fellowship, learn, and have fun with each other in beautiful Austin, Texas. And the April 24-26, 2015 event is set to be bigger and better than any of the previous events they’ve ever done!

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE.

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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

As the growth of the Paleo movement has risen at an astronomical rate over the past few years, it’s difficult to ignore the things that have contributed to this–a string of New York Times bestselling books, a passionate and enthusiastic group of bloggers and podcasters, and a singular annual event that takes place in Austin, Texas called Paleo f(x). And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence. Keith and Michelle Norris were inspired to bring together the passionate members of the community to fellowship, learn, and have fun with each other in beautiful Austin, Texas. And the April 24-26, 2015 event is set to be bigger and better than any of the previous events they’ve ever done!

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE.

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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

As the growth of the Paleo movement has risen at an astronomical rate over the past few years, it’s difficult to ignore the things that have contributed to this–a string of New York Times bestselling books, a passionate and enthusiastic group of bloggers and podcasters, and a singular annual event that takes place in Austin, Texas called Paleo f(x). And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence. Keith and Michelle Norris were inspired to bring together the passionate members of the community to fellowship, learn, and have fun with each other in beautiful Austin, Texas. And the April 24-26, 2015 event is set to be bigger and better than any of the previous events they’ve ever done!

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE.

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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

As the growth of the Paleo movement has risen at an astronomical rate over the past few years, it’s difficult to ignore the things that have contributed to this–a string of New York Times bestselling books, a passionate and enthusiastic group of bloggers and podcasters, and a singular annual event that takes place in Austin, Texas called Paleo f(x). And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence. Keith and Michelle Norris were inspired to bring together the passionate members of the community to fellowship, learn, and have fun with each other in beautiful Austin, Texas. And the April 24-26, 2015 event is set to be bigger and better than any of the previous events they’ve ever done!

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE.

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!

932: Jason Seib And Sarah Fragoso Break Away From Paleo With The Jassa Method

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 7.09.08 PM

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib and bestselling Paleo cookbook author and fitness coach Sarah Fragoso are our guests today in Episode 932 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Frustration has been building amongst some people in the Paleo community who are deeply concerned that the term “Paleo” has been overtaken by something that doesn’t represent what it really means as the popularity has increased in the mainstream. Two of the loudest and more well-known voices of dissent–Jason Seib and Sarah Fragoso–have decided to use less of the “P” word by forming their own concept known as JassaFIT. Both are successful personal trainers who realize healthy living takes more than exercise, but the right kind of nutrition, adequate sleep, and controlled stress levels. And they’ve outlined all of their wisdom on these issues in a great new e-book you’ll learn about in today’s show called The JASSA Method: How To Achieve Everlasting Fat Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jason, and Sarah share the details about their exciting new program, why neither of them have to be in the gym training clients (but why they still do!), why every aspect of your lifestyle matters in your success, the way stress unravels all the good your are doing in your diet and fitness, how it’s easier to tell clients how to manage stress than do it, her magic words for calming herself when she gets stressed, how Sarah tries to infuse joy into her daily life, how we got so messed up that we need to put it back together again, how modern society doesn’t even come close to the life of our ancestors, why getting healthy is “not an overnight fix,” why most people can’t and don’t stick to any given diet (we’re asking the wrong question), the distinction between weight loss and fat loss, why Sarah is considered “overweight” according to BMI, how the flawed calories hypothesis has crept its way into the Paleo community, the role insulin resistance plays in health and the consequences for people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes, how people want to know exactly what to do in their diet and health pursuits, why our brains aren’t wired for long-term goal setting, and so much more!

And for the founders of this extraordinary gathering of the best of the best in the Paleo community will tell you, they’re just as surprised at how quickly their event has risen to such prominence.

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Type 1 diabetic and grain-free, ketogenic business owner Katie Coleman is our guest today in Episode 928 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s featured audio lecture is from a pair of professors at Austin College in Sherman, Texas where they are teaching evolutionary principles of nutrition with their students. They are Dr. Kerry Brock and Dr. George Diggs who co-wrote a book entitled The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet that they now use as a textbook with their students sharing about the low-carb, high-fat diet of our ancestors. This is a really fascinating presentation you’re sure to enjoy! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!
