804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

    • A Paleo or primal diet may be deficient in a number of minerals, vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins

    • Folate is high in green vegetables, tropical fruits and citrus fruits – citrus is overall a rockstar food because of how nutrient it is
    • Magnesium is not the easiest nutrient to get, as we primarily get it through large portions of dark leafy greens, which doesn’t happen to be a prominent food in most folks diets
    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 7.49.43 PM

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

786: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Deborah Snyder And Dr. Eric Kossoff On Keto For Epilepsy

Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 2.25.19 PM

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

786: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Deborah Snyder And Dr. Eric Kossoff On Keto For Epilepsy

Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 2.25.19 PM

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

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

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

    • 3 Phase Paleo was the first of the Paleo Parent books where they talked about their three phase approach to not only removing certain foods, but on replacing the foods you are removing with nutrient dense ones instead
    • The Paleo Approach is another excellent resource that focuses on the ‘adding in’ and how beneficial this approach is to your health and wellbeing
    • Stacy reflected on how her diet and lifestyle evolved over time, and what happened that led her to her current food philosophy

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

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

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

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!

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

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

786: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Deborah Snyder And Dr. Eric Kossoff On Keto For Epilepsy

Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 2.25.19 PM

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

    • However, Stacy points out that chocolate has magnesium
    • Bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, figs and a lot of dried fruits are high in magnesium
    • Eat your vegetables, and your liver, and your citrus fruit, and your bone broth, and render your own lard from pasture raised pigs when you feel ready (Beyond Bacon can teach you how to easily do this)
  • 41:00 – Closing Thoughts
    • If there is one thing you should do from what you learned on this week’s show, Sarah suggests that folks work on adding micronutrient mindfulness to their actions
    • Simply have the topic of nutrient density on your radar and start to think through your choices from that standpoint
    • And don’t worry right now about whether or not it is tasty, there are many ways to hide these foods and to trick your palate so that you can warm up to it slowly
    • Stacy’s tip is to be prepared – it is when you will eat your best and with mindful decisions
      • What do I need to do this week to make sure I am getting seafood?
        • Green vegetables?
        • Broth, organ meat, or whatever you are looking to try?
  • 48:11 – Closing
      • It has been awesome joining this week’s show as guest hosts!
      • If you enjoyed Sarah and Stacy’s guest show – be sure to find them at The Paleo View, The Paleo Mom, and the Paleo Parents

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!

804: LLVLC Classic – Drs. Mike & Mary Dan Eades Share Where Low-Carb Is Going

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

  • 0:00 – Welcome to Livin’ La Vida Low Carb with your guest hosts Stacy and Sarah!
    • This is Stacy and Sarah’s second time guest hosting on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast – check out the first episode here

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 8.13.32 PM

Bariatric physicians and New York Times bestselling authors Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades are our guests today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 804 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode, we go back in time to the first time Jimmy ever met Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades, authors of the bestselling book Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health-in Just Weeks!, at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) conference in Phoenix, Arizona several years ago. He asked the dynamic low-carb duo for an interview during the conference and they graciously accepted his invitation.

Listen in as they share about why belly fat is harder to burn as you get older and what to do about it, which is better to consume between fat and protein, why the “slow-burn” weight lifting technique may be better for you than traditional resistance training methods, some of the more absurd dietary delusions espoused by vegan proponents like Dr. Dean Ornish, the bias that exists from people when looking at the latest scientific studies on nutrition, Dr. Mike’s response to the brouhaha that arose between him and Anthony Colpo, and the tortuous yet effective intermittent fasting concept. This podcast was so chock full of a goldmine of content that we hope you enjoy from our archives.

Then we’ll also share Jimmy’s follow-up interview with the Eades when they released their book The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle: The Simple Plan to Flatten Your Belly Fast! Listen in for details about this low-carb plan born out of necessity when they started their own television show to help those people in the middle of life who need a bit of belly-flattening that works. This is an LLVLC Show Classic episode for the history books! ENJOY!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 4.33.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 7.49.43 PM

Teenage real food blogger and author Joshua Weissman is our special guest host in Episode 791 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today’s special guest host has never done a podcast before. But we couldn’t resist inviting an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular Paleo recipe blog called Slim Palate. His name is Joshua Weissman and at the age of 18 he has published his first book with Victory Belt Publishing entitled The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Joshua began to struggle with weight problems and his health quickly began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him which led to being physically and verbally harassed at school–resulting in frequent bouts of depression. Needless to say, being the “fat kid” was no fun at all.

Joshua Weissman Before & After Photos
Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua started doing his own extensive research and discovered the power that comes from eating fresh, whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose over 100 pounds of weight without sacrificing flavor. Today, he is fit and happy while sharing his affinity for food and cooking with his blog readers who flock to check out his unforgettable recipes. He’s become a rising star in the Paleo and real food communities for his love and appreciation for using real whole foods and grass-fed and pastured meats sourced locally. Joshua feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from.

Listen in as Joshua shares his amazing weight loss success story firsthand, why he came up with his “Slim Palate” blog and brand new book, the disconnect that exists in our culture regarding real food, how we can help people become reconnected to their food again, and so much more. Joshua Weissman is wise beyond his years and has the ability to reach the younger generation with the power of the real food message. Enjoy this special presentation that is sure to be the first of many more from this young man in the coming years.

Physician and ketogenic diet advocate for epilepsy Dr. Deborah Snyder and low-carb, ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Eric Kossoff are our guests today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 786 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means while Jimmy has been away writing his next book, Keto Clarity. We’ve enjoyed featuring these LLVLC Show Classic episodes from deep within our golden archives of hundreds of health-enriching conversations Jimmy has had with various people over the years. Today we have a special double-feature for you on the topic of ketogenic diets and epilepsy. The first interview features Dr. Deborah Snyder, author of Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet, whose son Bryce was cured of epilepsy after going on a two-year stint following a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Although ketosis has long been known as an effective therapy for controlling seizures, it’s people like Dr. Snyder and the work of The Charlie Foundation who have helped to promote this cutting-edge, science-based treatment and the positive effects it is having on epileptic children.

Then in the second interview, we have a legendary epilepsy specialist and Johns Hopkins researcher named Dr. Eric Kossoff, author of Ketogenic Diets: Treatments For Epilepsy And Other Disorders. Do not miss this exciting chat that Jimmy had with Dr. Kossoff about his “modified Atkins diet” as a treatment for epilepsy. Listen in as they discuss other illnesses that could stand to benefit from a ketogenic diet, how to make a 5 grams of carbs daily diet work for a kid, and so much more!
