On yesterday’s episode of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show,” Jimmy interviewed a man named Peter Defty who is a triathlete coaching ultra-marathon and endurance sports athletes to tap into their body’s natural ability to burn fat for fuel. On today’s show, we keep that conversation going with a great friend of the show, former endurance and Ironman athlete, health blogger, and bestselling author named Mark Sisson from MarksDailyApple.com who knows a thing or two about endurance athletics having competed at a very elite level over three decades ago in distance running, triathlons, and Ironman competitions. When his health began to take a nosedive as a result of his performance-driven dietary choices, Mark began investigating better ways to fuel his body and realized that carbohydrates were the problem not the answer. Now he realizes the mistakes he has made and is passing along this newfound wisdom to the athletes he is helping to compete at a high level with less training, less carbs, and quicker recovery. Mark has outlined it all in his compelling new book that is a must-read for anyone interested in the physiology of how the body moves entitled Primal Endurance: Escape chronic cardio and carbohydrate dependency and become a fat burning beast.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss ultimate frisbee, what he’s hoping to accomplish with this new book on endurance training, why his “chronic cardio” mantra has been misunderstood, why training at a low level of output is better than a high level, why an athlete should avoid the carbohydrate-burning cycle, why gluconeogenesis while racing is “insignificant,” Sisson does ZOOLANDER, why you should feel “refreshed” (not hammered) after a workout, how he used to be all about pain management during races, how athletes like Nell Stephenson has shifted from lean protein Paleo to a high-fat ketogenic approach, why most marathon runners are carrying an extra 25-30 pounds, why the carbs during a race for ketogenic athletes don’t impact insulin or ketosis, the most dramatic turnaround on this has been Professor Tim Noakes, how long it will take for fat-adaptation to be the new normal, the role of ketones (and cycling in and out of making them) in an endurance race, how this concept could extend careers in professional sports, why topping off glycogen stores right before a race gives you an advantage, and why being inconsistent in your training is the key to success.

The failure of the low-fat hypothesis can be tracked back directly to the foods that people have been consuming when they decided to cut the fat in their diet. This includes carbohydrate-rich foods like grains, starches, and sugar–even the sugar contained in fruit. For a Swiss banker and entrepreneur named Romy Dolle from the German language website RomyDolle.com (see the Google Translate of RomyDolle.com in English), she personally has experienced this through abdominal bloat and other negative metabolic effects from consuming the supposedly healthy fruit. It wasn’t until she realized the culprit in her health woes that she was able to overcome her issues and now is helping others learn about how to overcome abdominal stress to begin nourishing their bodies with real food. She’s written a book about this entitled Fruit Belly: A 4-Day Quick Fix To Relieve Bloating Caused By High Carb, High Fruit Diets to creatively outline the strategies for restoring the damage that has been done.

Listen in as Jimmy and Romy have a delightful conversation about how she dealt with digestive issues and bloating in her younger years, how her personal health discovery has led her to helping others get healthy too, the need to get back to real food again, how she discovered fruit and other “healthy foods” were a problem for her to consume, how Tim Ferriss’ book helped her in her continued journey, how difficult it is for her to explain to people why she doesn’t eat fruit, how fruit got lumped together with vegetables as healthy, why she doesn’t tell people to not eat fruit at all, the many ways sugar is hidden on food labels, the major problem with drinking fruit juice, how what she learned about nutrition drives her passion for sharing today, why she named the book with a controversial title, her deep addiction to sugar and bread, what she uses to track success, and how liberating low-carb Paleo frees her from thinking about food anymore.

The American healthcare system has long been viewed as the most advanced and best in the entire world. However, with the passage of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) in 2010, it set into motion some concerning issues that have made a profound impact on insurance companies, doctors, and patients alike. For a South Carolina-based emergency medicine physician named Dr. Doug McGuff (who was last on the podcast way back in March 2009 in Episode 239), he has seen the handwriting on the wall for a while and was asked by primal living advocate Mark Sisson to write a book about this. Teaming up with a world-renowned economist named Robert P. Murphy, PhD, Dr. McGuff has released a controversial book on the state of the history and current state of the healthcare system entitled The Primal Prescription: Surviving The “Sick Care” Sinkhole. If you are concerned about the direction healthcare has taken in the United States, then this is one interview you will not want to miss!

There’s been growing awareness in recent years of the importance of gut health as people seek to improve their overall health by focusing on consuming good bacteria through fermented foods like sauerkraut, kombucha, and kefir. For primal living journalist and researcher Kale Brock, he’s taken his love and passion for this topic to bring probiotic living to the mainstream. As a Health & Exercise coach, the Sydney, Australia-based surfer regularly holds workshops and provides quality content online educating people about this critical subject. In 2015, he penned a brand new book about this entitled The Art of Probiotic Nutrition: Mastering fermented foods for better digestion, weight control, immunity & longevity which we share about with you in today’s interview.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kale share about how he overcame some serious health issues as a teenager with nutrition and lifestyle changes, how he got interested in probiotics and gut health, why proper gut health lays the foundation for robust overall health, why there is mystery surrounding probiotic foods, why healing the gut is so critical, why diet is merely one of a multiplicity of contributors to overall health, and so much more. If you are curious about probiotics, fermented foods, and gut health, then don’t miss hearing what Kale Brock has to share in today’s show!
