Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

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

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

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

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

That’s when his mindset changed from traditional medicine to more of a holistic, natural health approach to get to the root problem of health issues rather than simply covering them up with medications.

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

Nutritional health expert and author Dr. Mike Roussell is our interview guest today in Episode 833 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

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

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

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

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

833: Dr. Mike Roussell Extols The Virtues Of A Low-Carb, High-Fat, Ketogenic Diet

Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 7.22.56 PM

Nutritional health expert and author Dr. Mike Roussell is our interview guest today in Episode 833 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

833: Dr. Mike Roussell Extols The Virtues Of A Low-Carb, High-Fat, Ketogenic Diet

Nutritional health expert and author Dr. Mike Roussell is our interview guest today in Episode 833 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

Nutritional health expert and author Dr. Mike Roussell is our interview guest today in Episode 833 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.

842: Sarah Fragoso Honors The Thai Cuisine In Her New Paleo Cookbook

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 9.01.44 PM

Paleo mom blogger, podcaster, and bestselling cookbook author Sarah Fragoso is our interview guest today in Episode 842 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It was about one year ago that we featured a podcast with today’s featured interview guest as she released her debut book in a series of Paleo cookbooks finding inspiration from international cuisines. That first trip was to Italy, but today Sarah Fragoso from “Everyday Paleo” is back sharing about the next stop on her world tour–THAILAND! The new book is called Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine: Authentic Recipes Made Gluten-free and contains some rather interesting recipes and insights into the Thai food and culture.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah joke about co-hosting a podcast together, discuss the interesting challenges she faced while in Thailand (HOLY GUACAMOLE!), the lack of education on quality food ingredients in Thailand, they are inundated with soybean oil and told it’s the healthy fat to use, the “white substance” the locals kept putting on her food, why they cook for convenience rather than health (and being misinformed about what’s good for them), why Americans should care about the food culture of other countries, the restaurants in Thailand are Thai food almost exclusively, the respect they expect for the ingredients used in the Thai cuisine, the challenge of making sauces with Paleo ingredients, her homemade oyster sauce made with real oysters and coconut aminos, how traveling to other countries has given her exposure to new ingredients (stink beans!) she would have never known about, if you find stink beans in America then Sarah will send you a FREE COPY of her book, what she put in her mouth that tasted like something died, the “fishy gut sauce” soup she struggled to get down, her foray into eating scorpion (tastes like shrimp!), how her children dealt with being exposed to the Thai culture, the major cultural differences between America and Thailand, whether she saw people with obesity and diabetes there, why she didn’t want to glaze over the problems that exist in Southeast Asia, how their stress levels are so much lower than Westernized society, how coming back to America from Thailand “took time to adjust” again, how she handled the white rice issue in her book (“Have you had your rice today?” is a common greeting), how you can adapt any of her recipes to your specific nutritional needs, the Deep Fried Pork recipe I loved from her book (Sarah’s favorite street food in Thailand that she ate everyday–it’s “umptuous”), Sarah recommends the Stir Fried Crispy Pork Belly recipe for low-carbers, and so much more! It’s always a delight to share the great work of Sarah Fragoso and today’s podcast is no different. ENJOY!

Screen Shot 2014-07-05 at 10.44.43 AM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 7.10.52 AM

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

We live in exciting times when it comes to health information and it is thanks in part to the people who are active sharing information in the mainstream about nutrition, fitness and lifestyle changes. One of those people is a Pennsylvania-based man with a doctorate of nutrition named Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD who is a passionate advocate for taking complex nutritional concepts and making them palatable to the general public by translating them into practical advice the people can use to lose weight and get health. He’s the author of the Kindle e-book The 6 Pillars of Nutrition – A Simple Diet Solution for Permanent Weight Loss, Better Health, and a Longer Life and a regular contributor to Men’s Health and many other national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. Jimmy found out about Dr. Mike in this April 2014 “Ask The Diet Doctor” column at Shape.com.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Roussell have an engaging conversation about why he decided not to pursue his medical degree, how The Zone Diet by Dr. Barry Sears impacted his views on nutrition, why it makes sense to explore the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet in a healthy lifestyle, why ketogenic diets are still the “black sheep” of nutrition, how the science of low-carb diets is so convincing but completely missed by many, why trying to meet an arbitrary LDL target is “kinda crazy,” why anyone working in nutrition needs a psychology degree, the metabolic benefits that can occur with a step-wise reduction in carbohydrates, why food company influence on nutrition is overblown, why “high-protein” low-carb is a “misnomer,” how there are no negative changes in health that happen with a high-fat diet, how using “carbohydrate restriction” is a better term than “low-carb,” the body is very good at adapting to things, how a very low-carb diet can dehydrate you and mess with your electrolyte balance, the stunning exercise performance he achieved in a ketogenic state, what the DASH diet is and why it’s not what it is claimed to be, why the salt restriction recommendation is silly and impractical, the unintended consequences of having too low sodium, why a plant-based diet is really only about reducing saturated fat, the DASH diet test he did WITH red meat to see what would happen, and so much more.
