We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

788: Guest Hosts ‘The Primal Shift’ Podcast Gang Seek Out Ancestral Purpose

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 7.09.14 PM

Australian Paleo health podcasters Crystal Fieldhouse, Jo Fitton, and Charby Ibrahim are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 788 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

Australian Paleo health podcasters Crystal Fieldhouse, Jo Fitton, and Charby Ibrahim are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 788 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

790: Guest Host Evan Brand From ‘Not Just Paleo’ On Reconnecting To Nature

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 7.43.53 PM

Holistic health coach and Paleo podcaster Evan Brand is our special guest host in Episode 790 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Jimmy Moore is staying super-busy while he is away from the podcast right now writing the manuscript to his August 5, 2014 book
Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. It’s currently with the editors at Victory Belt for a series of edits over the next couple of months. Plus, the audiobook version spoken by Jimmy himself of his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers is completely finished and has been submitted to Audible. It is scheduled to be available for purchase within the next two week and we’ll let you know as soon as it is. We’d like to share a sample chapter with you on the podcast, so start thinking about which chapter you’d like for us to air. More details about this soon!

Today’s guest host is a great fellow health podcaster in Evan Brand from “Not Just Paleo” and his Top 25 iTunes Fitness & Nutrition “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan has always looked at Paleo not as a diet or a set of rules, but rather a mindset that shifts us away from the unhealthy habits of our modern lives. And while changing your food is an important aspect, there are other lifestyle choices that are just as critical to becoming optimally healthy. Listen in as Evan shares his experience working in the woods, whether our lack of experiencing nature is leading to so much unhappiness, some simple steps for reconnecting to nature again, why we seem to stress ourselves out so much, how using essential oils can literally benefit anyone, why even a city slicker can experience a life-changing event simply by going on a camping trip, how you should be cautious with the self-professed know-it-all health gurus, and why you should regularly tune in to his “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan Brand is a name you will hear in the greater health community for many more years to come!

Jimmy Moore is staying super-busy while he is away from the podcast right now writing the manuscript to his August 5, 2014 book
Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. It’s currently with the editors at Victory Belt for a series of edits over the next couple of months. Plus, the audiobook version spoken by Jimmy himself of his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers is completely finished and has been submitted to Audible. It is scheduled to be available for purchase within the next two week and we’ll let you know as soon as it is.

Today’s guest host is a great fellow health podcaster in Evan Brand from “Not Just Paleo” and his Top 25 iTunes Fitness & Nutrition “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan has always looked at Paleo not as a diet or a set of rules, but rather a mindset that shifts us away from the unhealthy habits of our modern lives. And while changing your food is an important aspect, there are other lifestyle choices that are just as critical to becoming optimally healthy. Listen in as Evan shares his experience working in the woods, whether our lack of experiencing nature is leading to so much unhappiness, some simple steps for reconnecting to nature again, why we seem to stress ourselves out so much, how using essential oils can literally benefit anyone, why even a city slicker can experience a life-changing event simply by going on a camping trip, how you should be cautious with the self-professed know-it-all health gurus, and why you should regularly tune in to his “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan Brand is a name you will hear in the greater health community for many more years to come!

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 7.09.14 PM

Australian Paleo health podcasters Crystal Fieldhouse, Jo Fitton, and Charby Ibrahim are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 788 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Links mentioned in the response:
Study: Measuring HDL particles as opposed to HDL cholesterol is a a better indicator of coronary heart disease
Upgraded MCT Oil

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 7.49.43 PM

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

He is the great Robb Wolf and affectionately referred to as “baby Jesus.” Robb has firmly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the health conversation over the past few years with the release of his New York Times bestselling book The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet and an extremely popular Top 5 iTunes Health podcast called “The Paleo Solution.” He moved from Chico, California to Reno, Nevada to begin working with first responders there to help them get their health back in line to perform their duties to serve and protect in their community by shifting their diet to a low-carb Paleo way of life. But long before all of that happened, we had Robb Wolf on this podcast talking about his basic philosophy regarding nutrition, fitness, and health like only he can. Listen in as we share two incredible interviews with this highly influential and respected leader from the world of Paleo.

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 7.49.43 PM

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Listen in as Evan shares his experience working in the woods, whether our lack of experiencing nature is leading to so much unhappiness, some simple steps for reconnecting to nature again, why we seem to stress ourselves out so much, how using essential oils can literally benefit anyone, why even a city slicker can experience a life-changing event simply by going on a camping trip, how you should be cautious with the self-professed know-it-all health gurus, and why you should regularly tune in to his “Not Just Paleo” podcast.

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Study: Impaired glucose tolerance in low-carbohydrate diet: maybe only a physiological state
Gluten-free, raw, unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Links mentioned in the response:
Study: Measuring HDL particles as opposed to HDL cholesterol is a a better indicator of coronary heart disease
Upgraded MCT Oil
23andme genetic testing

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Trace liquid minerals
Sea salt

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Listen in as Evan shares his experience working in the woods, whether our lack of experiencing nature is leading to so much unhappiness, some simple steps for reconnecting to nature again, why we seem to stress ourselves out so much, how using essential oils can literally benefit anyone, why even a city slicker can experience a life-changing event simply by going on a camping trip, how you should be cautious with the self-professed know-it-all health gurus, and why you should regularly tune in to his “Not Just Paleo” podcast.

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)

Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned.

Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round.

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

788: Guest Hosts ‘The Primal Shift’ Podcast Gang Seek Out Ancestral Purpose

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 7.09.14 PM

Australian Paleo health podcasters Crystal Fieldhouse, Jo Fitton, and Charby Ibrahim are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 788 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 7.09.14 PM

Australian Paleo health podcasters Crystal Fieldhouse, Jo Fitton, and Charby Ibrahim are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 788 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

790: Guest Host Evan Brand From ‘Not Just Paleo’ On Reconnecting To Nature

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 7.43.53 PM

Holistic health coach and Paleo podcaster Evan Brand is our special guest host in Episode 790 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Jimmy Moore is staying super-busy while he is away from the podcast right now writing the manuscript to his August 5, 2014 book
Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. It’s currently with the editors at Victory Belt for a series of edits over the next couple of months. Plus, the audiobook version spoken by Jimmy himself of his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers is completely finished and has been submitted to Audible. It is scheduled to be available for purchase within the next two week and we’ll let you know as soon as it is. We’d like to share a sample chapter with you on the podcast, so start thinking about which chapter you’d like for us to air. More details about this soon!

Today’s guest host is a great fellow health podcaster in Evan Brand from “Not Just Paleo” and his Top 25 iTunes Fitness & Nutrition “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan has always looked at Paleo not as a diet or a set of rules, but rather a mindset that shifts us away from the unhealthy habits of our modern lives. And while changing your food is an important aspect, there are other lifestyle choices that are just as critical to becoming optimally healthy. Listen in as Evan shares his experience working in the woods, whether our lack of experiencing nature is leading to so much unhappiness, some simple steps for reconnecting to nature again, why we seem to stress ourselves out so much, how using essential oils can literally benefit anyone, why even a city slicker can experience a life-changing event simply by going on a camping trip, how you should be cautious with the self-professed know-it-all health gurus, and why you should regularly tune in to his “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan Brand is a name you will hear in the greater health community for many more years to come!

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 7.09.14 PM

Australian Paleo health podcasters Crystal Fieldhouse, Jo Fitton, and Charby Ibrahim are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 788 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Study: Impaired glucose tolerance in low-carbohydrate diet: maybe only a physiological state
Gluten-free, raw, unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Links mentioned in the response:
Study: Measuring HDL particles as opposed to HDL cholesterol is a a better indicator of coronary heart disease
Upgraded MCT Oil

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message.

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode is with arguably the most famous name in the Paleo community. He is the great Robb Wolf and affectionately referred to as “baby Jesus.” Robb has firmly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the health conversation over the past few years with the release of his New York Times bestselling book The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet and an extremely popular Top 5 iTunes Health podcast called “The Paleo Solution.” He moved from Chico, California to Reno, Nevada to begin working with first responders there to help them get their health back in line to perform their duties to serve and protect in their community by shifting their diet to a low-carb Paleo way of life. But long before all of that happened, we had Robb Wolf on this podcast talking about his basic philosophy regarding nutrition, fitness, and health like only he can. Listen in as we share two incredible interviews with this highly influential and respected leader from the world of Paleo.

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Holistic health coach and Paleo podcaster Evan Brand is our special guest host in Episode 790 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Jimmy Moore is staying super-busy while he is away from the podcast right now writing the manuscript to his August 5, 2014 book
Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. It’s currently with the editors at Victory Belt for a series of edits over the next couple of months. Plus, the audiobook version spoken by Jimmy himself of his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers is completely finished and has been submitted to Audible. It is scheduled to be available for purchase within the next two week and we’ll let you know as soon as it is. We’d like to share a sample chapter with you on the podcast, so start thinking about which chapter you’d like for us to air. More details about this soon!

Today’s guest host is a great fellow health podcaster in Evan Brand from “Not Just Paleo” and his Top 25 iTunes Fitness & Nutrition “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan has always looked at Paleo not as a diet or a set of rules, but rather a mindset that shifts us away from the unhealthy habits of our modern lives. And while changing your food is an important aspect, there are other lifestyle choices that are just as critical to becoming optimally healthy. Listen in as Evan shares his experience working in the woods, whether our lack of experiencing nature is leading to so much unhappiness, some simple steps for reconnecting to nature again, why we seem to stress ourselves out so much, how using essential oils can literally benefit anyone, why even a city slicker can experience a life-changing event simply by going on a camping trip, how you should be cautious with the self-professed know-it-all health gurus, and why you should regularly tune in to his “Not Just Paleo” podcast. Evan Brand is a name you will hear in the greater health community for many more years to come!

788: Guest Hosts ‘The Primal Shift’ Podcast Gang Seek Out Ancestral Purpose

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 7.09.14 PM

Australian Paleo health podcasters Crystal Fieldhouse, Jo Fitton, and Charby Ibrahim are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 788 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When Jimmy was invited to come to Australia in November 2012 for the “Low Carb Down Under” speaking tour, he had the great privilege of meeting so many amazing people there. Two of those people were Crystal Fieldhouse from the “Eat Sleep Move” blog and Jo Fitton from the “Eating Well Out” blog and they dreamed at the time about starting their own Paleo, primal, real food-based podcast. Jimmy encouraged them to just do it and in 2014 that podcast is now a reality as “The Primal Shift: Primal Living in the Modern World” is rolling along on iTunes with Crystal, Jo, and Charby Ibrahim from “The Ancestral Body” blog at the helm. This incredible Aussie trio likes to focus on what they call “a collection of lifestyle shifts that form a well-rounded healthy existence.”


7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax)
What Crystal, Jo, and Charby attempt to do is help people more closely examine their current lifestyles to compare them with what our ancestors would have experienced–heck, even from the way our grandparents lived. Modern technology has put our lives on steroids and given us more stress than ever before. It’s everything people can do just to keep our heads above water. Needless to say, this can take a toll on our health, our happiness, our relationships, energy levels, and our quality of life. While diet and exercise are what gets most of the attention in reclaiming our health, there are a few vital pieces of the puzzle. Listen in as “The Primal Shift” podcast gang offers up their 7 Key Primal Shifts (Eat, Detox, Sleep, Think, Move, Play and Relax) that are all equally important elements of the healthy living puzzle. It’s an unforgettable podcast that could quite possibly change your life forever!
