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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Jimmy has hand-selected all of the fantastic guest hosts
you’ve been hearing over the past few months while he’s been away writing his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. And today we have one of his favorite fellow health podcasters filling in for him in the velvet-voiced Angelo Coppola from the “Latest in Paleo” podcast and the “Humans Are Not Broken” blog. Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media. He also draws from a recent article written by Denise Minger to share what could be much more useful advice for longevity and extending life than this so-called study.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Jimmy has hand-selected all of the fantastic guest hosts
you’ve been hearing over the past few months while he’s been away writing his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet.

Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media. He also draws from a recent article written by Denise Minger to share what could be much more useful advice for longevity and extending life than this so-called study.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Jimmy has hand-selected all of the fantastic guest hosts
you’ve been hearing over the past few months while he’s been away writing his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. And today we have one of his favorite fellow health podcasters filling in for him in the velvet-voiced Angelo Coppola from the “Latest in Paleo” podcast and the “Humans Are Not Broken” blog. Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media. He also draws from a recent article written by Denise Minger to share what could be much more useful advice for longevity and extending life than this so-called study.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Jimmy has hand-selected all of the fantastic guest hosts
you’ve been hearing over the past few months while he’s been away writing his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. And today we have one of his favorite fellow health podcasters filling in for him in the velvet-voiced Angelo Coppola from the “Latest in Paleo” podcast and the “Humans Are Not Broken” blog. Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media. He also draws from a recent article written by Denise Minger to share what could be much more useful advice for longevity and extending life than this so-called study.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Jimmy has hand-selected all of the fantastic guest hosts
you’ve been hearing over the past few months while he’s been away writing his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. And today we have one of his favorite fellow health podcasters filling in for him in the velvet-voiced Angelo Coppola from the “Latest in Paleo” podcast and the “Humans Are Not Broken” blog. Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media. He also draws from a recent article written by Denise Minger to share what could be much more useful advice for longevity and extending life than this so-called study.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Jimmy has hand-selected all of the fantastic guest hosts
you’ve been hearing over the past few months while he’s been away writing his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. And today we have one of his favorite fellow health podcasters filling in for him in the velvet-voiced Angelo Coppola from the “Latest in Paleo” podcast and the “Humans Are Not Broken” blog. Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media. He also draws from a recent article written by Denise Minger to share what could be much more useful advice for longevity and extending life than this so-called study.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:


http://youtu.be/r8ezchj4wO8
Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!

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!

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

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 8.05.07 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Jimmy has hand-selected all of the fantastic guest hosts
you’ve been hearing over the past few months while he’s been away writing his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet. And today we have one of his favorite fellow health podcasters filling in for him in the velvet-voiced Angelo Coppola from the “Latest in Paleo” podcast and the “Humans Are Not Broken” blog. Listen in as he deconstructs the recent study that made headlines around the world declaring, “Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking.” Angelo invites on a British nutritional health specialist named Zoe Harcombe to join him for an interview where they dive much deeper into this study than what was done in the mainstream media. He also draws from a recent article written by Denise Minger to share what could be much more useful advice for longevity and extending life than this so-called study.

798: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Nancy Appleton Has Been Warning About Sugar For Decades

N-Appleton

Anti-sugar advocate and bestselling author Dr. Nancy Appleton, PhD is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 798 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A transformation has been happening in recent years regarding the way we look at sugar and its impact on our health. Thanks to people like Dr. Robert Lustig and his viral Internet lecture “Sugar: The Bitter Truth (with 4.5+ million views!), New York Times journalist Gary Taubes writing about how toxic sugar is as well as the manipulation of this fact by The Sugar Association, and New York Times bestselling author Diane Sanfilippo encouraging people to do a 21-day sugar detox, a bright light is shining down on all the negative health effects of consuming this sweet white stuff. In fact, the prestigious World Health Organization (WHO) announced in 2014 that only 5% of your daily calories should come from sugar and families around the world are conducting their own sugar-free challenges to see how well they can cope without this part of their diet they thought they could never live without. All of this has to bring a big smile to the face of today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode guest Dr. Nancy Appleton who wrote a bestselling book about this very subject called Lick the Sugar Habit–IN 1988 (when Jimmy was just a sophomore in high school)!

Dr. Appleton was anti-sugar before being anti-sugar was cool. But she certainly blazed a trail with her great work penning several more books about the health effects of sugar, including Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction and Killer Colas: The Hard Truth About Soft Drinks. And she’s also created a DVD film called Sweet Suicide sharing about how sugar has so easily penetrated our culture and the consequences of that. Here’s a 6-minute clip of this documentary:

Listen in to today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode interview as Jimmy and Dr. Appleton discuss why cutting out allergy-inducing foods is critical to health, whether giving up sugar cold turkey is better than doing it gradually, why consuming whole fruits is much better for your health than drinking fruit juice, the incredibly addictive nature of sugar, and so much more! Sugar is at the forefront of the health discussion in 2014 and we owe a great deal of gratitude to people like Dr. Nancy Appleton for banging this drum again and again for decades until the message finally sunk in.

797: Guest Host Dr. Terry Wahls Shares How Ketogenic Paleo Healed Her From MS

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.22.27 PM

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our special guest host in Episode 797 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

What a delightful guest host we have for you today in the truly remarkable Dr. Terry Wahls, MD who has developed an integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions after overcoming a relapsing, remitting progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000 that had her taking chemotherapy and confined to a tilt-reclined wheelchair to now thriving thanks to some basic nutritional changes she made based on Paleo and low-carb diet principles (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with Dr. Wahls to hear her full story in Episode 533 and Episode 637).

Needless to say, Dr. Wahls’ inspiring story quickly gained overnight fame, especially after her November 2011 “Minding Your Mitochondria” TEDx video went viral and now has in excess of 1.6 million views on YouTube and counting. This caught the attention of a publisher who asked her to write a book about the therapy she has been using personally and researching for other multiple sclerosis sufferers called The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Wahls is interviewed by a University of Iowa master’s degree student named Brooke Blazevich (e-mail her at brooke-blazevich@uiowa.edu) who has a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Western Illinois University. Ever since she heard about the story of Dr. Wahls overcoming MS, Brooke has become a big fan of her work to help others dealing with various autoimmune issues that could be improved through the implementation of a nutrient-rich diet. Listen in as Brooke and Dr. Wahls share her story, how and why she designed her diet with 3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced) levels to choose from, how this diet takes the idea of “healthy eating” to a new level, the rhyme and reason of Dr. Wahls Food Pyramid, the recipes, grocery lists, and cooking tips that are shared in her book, and more.

Here are the key points discussed during this podcast:
- The importance of food as medicine
- Overview of symptoms and number of people affected by MS
- Why mitochondria are essential to people with MS
- Brief overview of what the Wahls Protocol is
- Review of ketosis
- Challenge of achieving both ketosis and a nutrient dense diet
- How nutrient-dense ketogenic diets heal the brain

This is one of the most awe-inspiring podcasts we’ve ever aired and one you won’t soon forget! ENJOY!
