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

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

We’ve got a special doubleheader podcast for you today with two great interviews you’ll enjoy hearing. The first one features a Swedish engineer named Michel Lundell who was diagnosed with epilepsy and discovered the ketogenic diet as a means for controlling his seizures. But when we became disappointed with blood and urine ketone testing, Michel started investigating breath ketones and invented the world’s first commercially available breath ketone analyzer he calls Ketonix. Hear him share about this amazing new device that is perfect for people doing nutritional ketosis. Then in the main interview, we’ve got an author, designer, health enthusiast, and voiceover artist named Leslie Klenke who was given an opportunity by Mark Sison’s Primal Blueprint Publishing to write a book for teenaged girls called Paleo Girl: Take a Leap.

825: Dr. Richard Maurer Offers Up Six Steps To A Healthy Metabolism

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.13 PM

Naturopathic doctor, integrative medicine specialist, and author Dr. Richard Maurer is our interview guest today in Episode 825 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the so-called health “experts” have attempted to communicate the message that a proper diet is merely a game a math–eat less calories and exercise more to create an energy deficit to magically lose weight and get your health in order. But naturopathic physician and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Richard Maurer says this doesn’t jive with what he has seen treating patients dealing with obesity and chronic health problems. That’s why he created a six-step plan for knowing where you stand in your health in his 2014 book entitled The Blood Code: Unlock the Secrets of Your Metabolism. Jimmy met Dr. Maurer at the recent Paleo(f)x conference in Austin, Texas earlier this year and discovered he uses low-carb Paleo lifestyle principles to help heal the bodies of his patients.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Maurer discuss why he chose the naturopathic route to medicine over becoming a traditional medical doctor, why blood testing is so critically important to tracking your progress in your health, the role skin-fold calipers play in assessing your health, the connection between insulin resistance, high insulin levels and hypothyroidism in modern diseases, determining the right mix of macronutrients that are right for you, various lifestyle habits that can impact your health, and so much more! Dr. Maurer abundantly understands what it takes to heal your metabolism once it’s been broken and he shares all about it in today’s episode.

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

Endurance sports writer, certified sports nutritionist, and author Matt Fitzgerald is our interview guest today in Episode 824 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

825: Dr. Richard Maurer Offers Up Six Steps To A Healthy Metabolism

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.13 PM

Naturopathic doctor, integrative medicine specialist, and author Dr. Richard Maurer is our interview guest today in Episode 825 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the so-called health “experts” have attempted to communicate the message that a proper diet is merely a game a math–eat less calories and exercise more to create an energy deficit to magically lose weight and get your health in order. But naturopathic physician and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Richard Maurer says this doesn’t jive with what he has seen treating patients dealing with obesity and chronic health problems. That’s why he created a six-step plan for knowing where you stand in your health in his 2014 book entitled The Blood Code: Unlock the Secrets of Your Metabolism. Jimmy met Dr. Maurer at the recent Paleo(f)x conference in Austin, Texas earlier this year and discovered he uses low-carb Paleo lifestyle principles to help heal the bodies of his patients.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Maurer discuss why he chose the naturopathic route to medicine over becoming a traditional medical doctor, why blood testing is so critically important to tracking your progress in your health, the role skin-fold calipers play in assessing your health, the connection between insulin resistance, high insulin levels and hypothyroidism in modern diseases, determining the right mix of macronutrients that are right for you, various lifestyle habits that can impact your health, and so much more! Dr. Maurer abundantly understands what it takes to heal your metabolism once it’s been broken and he shares all about it in today’s episode.

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

Endurance sports writer, certified sports nutritionist, and author Matt Fitzgerald is our interview guest today in Episode 824 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Hear him share about this amazing new device that is perfect for people doing nutritional ketosis. Then in the main interview, we’ve got an author, designer, health enthusiast, and voiceover artist named Leslie Klenke who was given an opportunity by Mark Sison’s Primal Blueprint Publishing to write a book for teenaged girls called Paleo Girl: Take a Leap.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

We’ve got a special doubleheader podcast for you today with two great interviews you’ll enjoy hearing. The first one features a Swedish engineer named Michel Lundell who was diagnosed with epilepsy and discovered the ketogenic diet as a means for controlling his seizures. But when we became disappointed with blood and urine ketone testing, Michel started investigating breath ketones and invented the world’s first commercially available breath ketone analyzer he calls Ketonix. Hear him share about this amazing new device that is perfect for people doing nutritional ketosis. Then in the main interview, we’ve got an author, designer, health enthusiast, and voiceover artist named Leslie Klenke who was given an opportunity by Mark Sison’s Primal Blueprint Publishing to write a book for teenaged girls called Paleo Girl: Take a Leap.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the so-called health “experts” have attempted to communicate the message that a proper diet is merely a game a math–eat less calories and exercise more to create an energy deficit to magically lose weight and get your health in order. But naturopathic physician and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Richard Maurer says this doesn’t jive with what he has seen treating patients dealing with obesity and chronic health problems. That’s why he created a six-step plan for knowing where you stand in your health in his 2014 book entitled The Blood Code: Unlock the Secrets of Your Metabolism. Jimmy met Dr. Maurer at the recent Paleo(f)x conference in Austin, Texas earlier this year and discovered he uses low-carb Paleo lifestyle principles to help heal the bodies of his patients.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Maurer discuss why he chose the naturopathic route to medicine over becoming a traditional medical doctor, why blood testing is so critically important to tracking your progress in your health, the role skin-fold calipers play in assessing your health, the connection between insulin resistance, high insulin levels and hypothyroidism in modern diseases, determining the right mix of macronutrients that are right for you, various lifestyle habits that can impact your health, and so much more! Dr. Maurer abundantly understands what it takes to heal your metabolism once it’s been broken and he shares all about it in today’s episode.

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

Endurance sports writer, certified sports nutritionist, and author Matt Fitzgerald is our interview guest today in Episode 824 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

Endurance sports writer, certified sports nutritionist, and author Matt Fitzgerald is our interview guest today in Episode 824 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

We’ve got a special doubleheader podcast for you today with two great interviews you’ll enjoy hearing. The first one features a Swedish engineer named Michel Lundell who was diagnosed with epilepsy and discovered the ketogenic diet as a means for controlling his seizures. But when we became disappointed with blood and urine ketone testing, Michel started investigating breath ketones and invented the world’s first commercially available breath ketone analyzer he calls Ketonix. Hear him share about this amazing new device that is perfect for people doing nutritional ketosis. Then in the main interview, we’ve got an author, designer, health enthusiast, and voiceover artist named Leslie Klenke who was given an opportunity by Mark Sison’s Primal Blueprint Publishing to write a book for teenaged girls called Paleo Girl: Take a Leap. Empower Yourself. Be Awesome! Listen in to hear Jimmy and Leslie talk all about this exciting new book that has been sorely needed in the community.

825: Dr. Richard Maurer Offers Up Six Steps To A Healthy Metabolism

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.13 PM

Naturopathic doctor, integrative medicine specialist, and author Dr. Richard Maurer is our interview guest today in Episode 825 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the so-called health “experts” have attempted to communicate the message that a proper diet is merely a game a math–eat less calories and exercise more to create an energy deficit to magically lose weight and get your health in order. But naturopathic physician and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Richard Maurer says this doesn’t jive with what he has seen treating patients dealing with obesity and chronic health problems. That’s why he created a six-step plan for knowing where you stand in your health in his 2014 book entitled The Blood Code: Unlock the Secrets of Your Metabolism. Jimmy met Dr. Maurer at the recent Paleo(f)x conference in Austin, Texas earlier this year and discovered he uses low-carb Paleo lifestyle principles to help heal the bodies of his patients.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Maurer discuss why he chose the naturopathic route to medicine over becoming a traditional medical doctor, why blood testing is so critically important to tracking your progress in your health, the role skin-fold calipers play in assessing your health, the connection between insulin resistance, high insulin levels and hypothyroidism in modern diseases, determining the right mix of macronutrients that are right for you, various lifestyle habits that can impact your health, and so much more! Dr. Maurer abundantly understands what it takes to heal your metabolism once it’s been broken and he shares all about it in today’s episode.

He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

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

We’ve got a special doubleheader podcast for you today with two great interviews you’ll enjoy hearing. The first one features a Swedish engineer named Michel Lundell who was diagnosed with epilepsy and discovered the ketogenic diet as a means for controlling his seizures. But when we became disappointed with blood and urine ketone testing, Michel started investigating breath ketones and invented the world’s first commercially available breath ketone analyzer he calls Ketonix. Hear him share about this amazing new device that is perfect for people doing nutritional ketosis. Then in the main interview, we’ve got an author, designer, health enthusiast, and voiceover artist named Leslie Klenke who was given an opportunity by Mark Sison’s Primal Blueprint Publishing to write a book for teenaged girls called Paleo Girl: Take a Leap. Empower Yourself. Be Awesome! Listen in to hear Jimmy and Leslie talk all about this exciting new book that has been sorely needed in the community.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the so-called health “experts” have attempted to communicate the message that a proper diet is merely a game a math–eat less calories and exercise more to create an energy deficit to magically lose weight and get your health in order. But naturopathic physician and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Richard Maurer says this doesn’t jive with what he has seen treating patients dealing with obesity and chronic health problems. That’s why he created a six-step plan for knowing where you stand in your health in his 2014 book entitled The Blood Code: Unlock the Secrets of Your Metabolism. Jimmy met Dr. Maurer at the recent Paleo(f)x conference in Austin, Texas earlier this year and discovered he uses low-carb Paleo lifestyle principles to help heal the bodies of his patients.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Maurer discuss why he chose the naturopathic route to medicine over becoming a traditional medical doctor, why blood testing is so critically important to tracking your progress in your health, the role skin-fold calipers play in assessing your health, the connection between insulin resistance, high insulin levels and hypothyroidism in modern diseases, determining the right mix of macronutrients that are right for you, various lifestyle habits that can impact your health, and so much more! Dr. Maurer abundantly understands what it takes to heal your metabolism once it’s been broken and he shares all about it in today’s episode.

824: Why Matt Fitzgerald Describes Paleo And Low-Carb Diets As ‘Cults’

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.51 PM

Endurance sports writer, certified sports nutritionist, and author Matt Fitzgerald is our interview guest today in Episode 824 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

With the rise in popularity of the concept of dieting from every angle, including Paleo and low-carb, there is growing skepticism by some people about whether any of them are viable requiring what they think is the unnecessary restriction of some food, ingredient, or macronutrient. This is something that concerned endurance sports writer and certified sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald so much that he decided to address what he describes as the failure of the “one-size-fits-all” nutritional approach in his provocatively-titled 2014 book Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US. This book has already been quite controversial in the health community which is why Jimmy wanted to speak with Matt about the premise of his new book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Matt have an engaging conversation about how the diet industry has gotten it all wrong, the belief that every diet is predicated on being the “single right way” to health, why the most prudent approach is the one that is customized to the individual (the philosophy that Jimmy has long held about diet–find the proven plan that works for you and do it for the rest of your life making appropriate tweaks along the way), why nutritional science is pretty much bogus, how even the Paleo and low-carb diet can be wrongly promoted as the only way, how an agnostic belief in diet may or may not necessarily be a good idea, how to customize the diet plan that will work for you, and so much more. This was one of the most engaging interviews Jimmy has had in a while which always makes for great podcasting. ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Ketonix breath ketone analyzer inventor Michel Lundell and author, designer, health enthusiast, and voiceover artist Leslie Klenke are our interview guests today in Episode 835 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve got a special doubleheader podcast for you today with two great interviews you’ll enjoy hearing. The first one features a Swedish engineer named Michel Lundell who was diagnosed with epilepsy and discovered the ketogenic diet as a means for controlling his seizures. But when we became disappointed with blood and urine ketone testing, Michel started investigating breath ketones and invented the world’s first commercially available breath ketone analyzer he calls Ketonix. Hear him share about this amazing new device that is perfect for people doing nutritional ketosis. Then in the main interview, we’ve got an author, designer, health enthusiast, and voiceover artist named Leslie Klenke who was given an opportunity by Mark Sison’s Primal Blueprint Publishing to write a book for teenaged girls called Paleo Girl: Take a Leap. Empower Yourself. Be Awesome! Listen in to hear Jimmy and Leslie talk all about this exciting new book that has been sorely needed in the community.

825: Dr. Richard Maurer Offers Up Six Steps To A Healthy Metabolism

Screen Shot 2014-06-01 at 6.19.13 PM

Naturopathic doctor, integrative medicine specialist, and author Dr. Richard Maurer is our interview guest today in Episode 825 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Most of the so-called health “experts” have attempted to communicate the message that a proper diet is merely a game a math–eat less calories and exercise more to create an energy deficit to magically lose weight and get your health in order. But naturopathic physician and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Richard Maurer says this doesn’t jive with what he has seen treating patients dealing with obesity and chronic health problems. That’s why he created a six-step plan for knowing where you stand in your health in his 2014 book entitled The Blood Code: Unlock the Secrets of Your Metabolism. Jimmy met Dr. Maurer at the recent Paleo(f)x conference in Austin, Texas earlier this year and discovered he uses low-carb Paleo lifestyle principles to help heal the bodies of his patients.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Maurer discuss why he chose the naturopathic route to medicine over becoming a traditional medical doctor, why blood testing is so critically important to tracking your progress in your health, the role skin-fold calipers play in assessing your health, the connection between insulin resistance, high insulin levels and hypothyroidism in modern diseases, determining the right mix of macronutrients that are right for you, various lifestyle habits that can impact your health, and so much more! Dr. Maurer abundantly understands what it takes to heal your metabolism once it’s been broken and he shares all about it in today’s episode.
