Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging

      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing

    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging

      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it

  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

807: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Robert Lustig Gives Us The Bitter Truth About Sugar

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 8.21.34 PM

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

803: Guest Hosts Sarah Ballantyne and Stacy Toth Offer Up ‘The Paleo Approach’

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

Former research scientist, blogger, podcaster, and author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD and blogger, podcaster, and author Stacy Toth are our special guest co-hosts in Episode 803 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here
    • More on Stacy
      • Lost over 100 pounds, and has maintained that weight-loss through diet and lifestyle
      • In the last year she has developed a passion for lifting heavy things and most recently won her first ever competition, a Strongman Competition
      • She has three boys and a wonderful stay-at-home husband to help her keep everything a float
      • Everyone in the family eats a paleo diet
      • Matt and Stacy are authors of Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon, the e-book 3 Phase Paleo, and the upcoming Real Life Paleo
    • More on Sarah
      • She has a PhD in Medical Biophysics and use to do medical research before becoming a stay-at-home mom
      • Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom was largely influenced by her health, as she was struggling with obesity
      • She has also lost and maintained and an over 100 pound weight-loss
      • Previously, Sarah also was struggling with a number of autoimmune diseases, which led her to the paleo diet and to start blogging
      • Her first book The Paleo Approach was released in January – it is a science and guidebook that explains the principles of a paleo diet and the extra mile that someone with an immune or autoimmune issue needs to go to regulate their immune system with diet
      • The companion cookbook, The Paleo Approach Cookbook, will be released in August
      • Stacy notes that Sarah is also a Canadian
  • 4:33 – Stacy and Sarah’s Stance on Paleo
    • Both Stacy and Sarah define themselves as nutrient seekers, which is how they define what they are interested in consuming without putting a specific label on it
    • Overtime both of their diets have evolved into this model, and they have each gained an interest in consuming the foods that are the most nutrient dense in an enjoyable way
    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy
    • Sarah shared her health journey and what led her to seek out a nutrient dense approach to living, specifically what inspired her to think about her diet differently
    • Stacy and Sarah chatted about organ meat and their recommendation for consuming organ meat at least twice a week
    • Sarah points out that many people have mental blocks around organ meat, and both Stacy and Sarah had to learn to like organ meat (check out both The Paleo Mom’s recipe index and Paleo Parent’s index for recipes that disguise organ meats)
  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins
    • Sarah points out that she looks at her nutrient goals over the course of the week, and why zinc intake is one of her main focuses, which she likes to incorporate through canned oysters, but shellfish in general will provide you with zinc
    • Red meat, like organ meat, leafy greens, especially spinach, and some nuts and seeds are also high in zinc
    • Sarah shared on why zinc is such an important mineral and how it impacts functions within the body
    • Stacy’s boys really like clams and they go with the canned kind, which makes it an affordable option
    • Specifically for Stacy, she focuses on incorporating bone broth, which is rich in glycine and many others minerals
    • Offal and shellfish are both synergistically rich in vitamins A, D and K2
    • Liver is so rich in nutrients that you could consume it once a week and meet your vitamin A needs
    • Consuming A, D and K2 are absolutely critical for bone health, dental health, and connective tissue and joint health
    • Vitamin E is another nutrient that many are deficient in, which comes primarily from green vegetables and nuts and seeds
    • Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, and folate is a B vitamin
    • Folic acid is not efficiently absorbed and it is better for our bodies to simply have folate instead
    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents
      • Thank you everyone!

Neuroendocrinologist, anti-sugar crusader, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 807 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest is someone who initially told Jimmy Moore he didn’t want to be on the podcast when he was asked. But thanks to Jimmy’s fellow health podcaster Sean Croxton from “Underground Wellness” who told University of California San Francisco professor of pediatrics Dr. Robert Lustig that Jimmy’s show is open-minded and honest in his interviews, he agreed to be on this podcast. At the time, his infamous viral YouTube video lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” was all the rage. In 2014, that video is still going strong at 6.5+ million views and counting. And the conversations Jimmy had was such a hit that he was back for another interview soon thereafter before the release of his bestselling books Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lustig discuss why he thinks a total “low-carb” approach misses the boat, why the vagus (or pneumogastric) nerve and insulin metabolism are forcing us to store more fat and be less active, the results of his studies that show fructose is metabolized more like alcohol than glucose, and therefore contributes to liver damage, and a whole lot more. These back-to-back interviews aired long before the world knew who Dr. Robert Lustig was, so enjoy this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with the man himself.

We’ve got an outstanding pair of guest hosts who know their way around a health podcast as the co-hosts of their very own successful iTunes health podcast called “The Paleo View.” They are Dr. Sarah Ballantyne from “The Paleo Mom” blog and Stacy Toth from “Paleo Parents” and they are both self-professed nutrient-seekers. These two lovely ladies share their inspirational stories, both of them losing and maintaining over 100-pound weight loss, battling with autoimmune diseases, and arriving at the realization that the key to their health was a focus on eating the most nutrient-dense foods possible.

Listen in as Sarah and Stacy discuss the extensive research Sarah did for her brand new Victory Belt Publishing book The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body that helped her realize the key role that nutrient-deficiency plays in all chronic disease, what micronutrients are most deficient in theAmerican diet, how a standard Paleo, low-carb, or primal diet might be deficient in these key nutrients, especially vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and folate, and why it’s better to seek whole food sources of nutrients instead of supplements. You won’t want to miss what Sarah and Stacy have to share to help you become a nutrient-seeker, too.

  • 21:48 – Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Counteract
    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins

    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

801: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Stephan Guyenet Challenging Nutritional Norms

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

Neurobiologist, obesity researcher, author and lecturer Dr. Stephan Guyenet, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 801 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we’re so happy to present to you one of the great unsung heroes in the Paleo community in University of Washington neurobiologist and nutritional health expert Dr. Stephan Guyenet from the “Whole Health Source” blog. He has been one of the leading voices of the science supporting the consumption of healthy fats and traditional Paleolithic types of diets. Since the original airing of this interview with Jimmy, Dr. Guyenet has become most famous for promoting the idea of “food reward” in obesity and in 2013 joined forces with Dan Pardi from “Dan’s Plan” on a weight and health effort called the Ideal Weight Program.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Guyenet discuss how and why he got interested in the subject of health, where he sees the Paleo and low-carb movement going in the future, his thinking about the perception of sugar versus fat in American culture, how MSG mimics sugar in the body, why grains respond different in some people than others, why grinding, soaking, and fermenting grains is so important if you are going to consume them, why eating a 100% whole grain bread is unnatural, why the calorie theory is not as relevant to body fat regulation as we’ve been led to believe, how your body will defend a “set point” where it wants to keep your body weight at, the role of leptin resistance in growing fat mass, producing hunger, and slowing calorie-burning, why insulin is not as critical as leptin, the positive role of gut flora and bacteria in the body, why the polymer oligofructose (a form of inulin) promotes fat loss, the exercise component in fat loss and a healthy lifestyle, why sprints and circuit training is most effective for increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing body fat, the impact of Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories, the distinction between a heart attack, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, the rise and fall in cigarette smoking correlating with heart disease, the public confusion about what living healthy is all about, and so much more. As you can tell from this LLVLC Show Classic interview, Dr. Stephan Guyenet is a very intelligent voice of reason in the pursuit of weight loss and optimizing health.
