Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

841: Dr. Joe Leonardi Explains What To Do When You Have An Obesity Relapse

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.06.45 PM

Chiropractor, blogger and author Dr. Joe Leonardi is our interview guest today in Episode 841 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

For some reason or another, talking about weight relapse within the low-carb, Paleo, or overall health communities is looked upon as taboo. The thinking goes that if this way of eating is working so well for you, then why would you ever gain weight back again after finding success? Some even assume that either the diet isn’t working right or the person just stopped doing the plan when they’re actually doing all the right things. We recently featured an interview with Hank Garner about this very subject and today we’ve got another great low-carb success story who experienced some weight regain. His name is Dr. Joe Leonardi (listen to Jimmy’s interview with him way back in Episode 252), a Kingston, Pennsylvania-based chiropractor who famously lost 100+ pounds on a low-carb lifestyle change and was on fire sharing with others about how they could radically alter the future of their weight and health, too.

But then it happened. A stressful part of life started getting in the way along with some unforeseen circumstances that led Dr. Leonardi right back to gaining weight again. He’s shared some of the lessons he garnered from that experience in his new book Sometimes The Bastard Returns: A True Life Account Of Obesity Relapse (read Jimmy’s review). Listen in as Jimmy and Joe have a rather frank conversation about gaining weight after being successful at taking it off, the intense addiction to carbohydrates that continually pull you away from eating well, how he has become less arrogant than he was before, why you need to be more aware of the challenge of falling back into bad habits again, counting “net” carbs is bogus and you have to count all carbs to be honest, why he disagrees with Dr. Lustig’s premise, how he’s heartbroken over people who have had gastric bypass surgery as the miracle for their weight problem, the absolute need for consistency in your routine to prevent relapse from taking hold, the technique he uses about putting his problems in a psychological box, you can’t overcome the ill effects of stress, the difference between having a positive vs. negative attitude about things in your life, and a whole lot more.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

838: Dr. Justin Marchegiani Is Demonstrating The Future Of Effective Healthcare

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

Holistic health practitioner and chiropractor Dr. Justin Marchegiani is our interview guest today in Episode 838 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Imagine for a moment that you’ve prepared yourself for a promising career in the field of medicine by taking the traditional route of medical school to learn about the latest developments in surgical and pharmaceutical protocols for making people well. But then you observe first-hand what this model of health looks like up close and personal and you realize the tremendous shortcomings this has to offer people in regards to real solutions to their greatest health concerns. That’s exactly what happened to Dr. Justin Marchegiani who decided his time and energy would be much better spent helping people reverse the effects of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

He got doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine and now practices in San Francisco, California area at the Just In Health Wellness Clinic. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Marchegiani talk about this journey to holistic medicine, why being a holistic doctor helps his patients get better through nutrition and lifestyle rather than medicine and surgeries, the common problems he is seeing in patients such as thyroid hormone imbalances, female hormone imbalances, and chronic infections, what he does to get to the root cause of these issues, how a low-carb diet fits within the nutritional protocol for improving the health of most of his patients, his own battle with an autoimmune thyroid issue and the research that led him to, why some people struggle even eating a low-carb and/or Paleo diet, the massive impact that stress plays on your health, and so much more! Dr. Marchegiani has lived it and is now helping his patients get well without the need for drugs. This is the future of healthcare and the prudent medical professionals are moving to a template like the one Dr. Marchegiani is using.

837: Ashley Tudor Is ‘Perfecting Paleo’ By Bringing In The Self-Testing Element

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

Author, health innovator, hunter, explorer, and quantified selfer Ashley Tudor is our interview guest today in Episode 837 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been happening with nutritional health in recent years, then you’ll already there are two movements that have run along parallel paths in terms of their popularity. One is Paleo which was the #1 diet search term in 2013. But the other one is the quantified self movement with the whole idea of people conducting their own n=1 experiments to see what happens to them when they make changes to some aspect of their diet and lifestyle. Our host Jimmy Moore did this in 2012-2013 with his nutritional ketosis experiment. But if you ask Paleo enthusiast and quantified self-experimenter Ashley Tudor about this, she’d say self-testing is the way you make Paleo work best for you and she’s outlined how and why in her new Victory Belt Publishing book entitled Perfecting Paleo: Personalize Your Diet Rules: Ancient Wisdom Meets Self-Testing.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ashley discuss why she is a big believer in hunting, how to make quality meats more affordable to the masses, her travels to other countries and her observations about the food culture there, the various experiments she did on herself in her pursuit of perfecting Paleo (including a stint into nutritional ketosis), and so much more. Ashley is a vibrant and articulate representative in the Paleo community that not near enough people know about. Soak in what she has to say in today’s episode.
