Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

THE CHOLESTEROL CONUNDRUM AND ROOT CAUSE SOLUTION

http://youtu.be/fuj6nxCDBZ0

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

THE CHOLESTEROL CONUNDRUM AND ROOT CAUSE SOLUTION

http://youtu.be/fuj6nxCDBZ0

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

http://youtu.be/xrsHqIKtXNw

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

845: Eve Schaub Challenged Her Family To Give Up Sugar For A Year

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

Writer and author Eve Schaub is our interview guest today in Episode 845 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig gave his now-infamous “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” lecture in July 2009 to a small group of mostly medical school students and laypeople at the University of California-San Francisco, little did he know that millions of people would be touched and inspired around the world by that talk through the power of the Internet. One of those people was a writer named Eve Schaub who watched Dr. Lustig’s video and immediately laid down a daunting challenge to her husband and two young daughters–let’s give up added sugar in our diet for a period of one year to see what would happen. Eve shares all about the incredible results of that experiment in a new book entitled Year of No Sugar: A Memoir.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Eve talk about how Dr. Lustig’s talk “lit my brain on fire” about the problems with sugar, how she found Dr. Lustig’s video on a friend’s Facebook wall, all the strange places in our life that sugar shows up as an ingredient, we vilified the wrong thing (dietary fat) and replaced it with the real problem in health (sugar), the anti-sugar message is starting to penetrate into the culture more, how David Gillespie and Dr. Lustig were invaluable resources to her during her year of no sugar in 2011, why she thinks Dr. Lustig’s 90-minute medical lecture has nearly 5 million views, how they went cold turkey giving up added sugar beginning on January 1, 2011, the logistics of finding foods to eat was the hardest part, how food manufacturers try to hide sugar by breaking it up into various ingredients, why the new “added sugars” on the nutrition label is a mixed bag, using the word “sugar” can get confusing very fast to people, for the purposes of their experiment they removed the added fructose in the food they consumed, they wanted to see how hard it would be and whether it could be possible to do this painlessly, because they still ate carbohydrates the effects of removing sugar were less dramatic, the once-a-month sugary food they allowed themselves, how they lost their desire for these sugary desserts within nine months, how her 6-year old and 11-year old daughters handled giving up added sugar for a year (they burst out into tears when they were told about it), how people are trying so hard to do the right things for their health, whether they continued to eat no sugar added foods once 2011 was over, the key to getting away from sugar is to start cooking more, the mistakes they made when they first started doing this, whether they added any artificial or even natural sweeteners to get sweetness, the tiny sesame seed cookies she tried to recreate at home that she had to throw out, how they were all pretty healthy when they began this, what should get people to start taking sugar more seriously, how Halloween went for the girls in 2011, why her girls are very happy eating less sugar because it “became normal,” the “nutritional advice disease” that people get frustrated with that leads them to do nothing, and more! ENJOY!

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

SUGAR AS A PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF METABOLIC SYNDROME

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

830: Brent Pottenger And Karen Phelps Give The Lowdown On AHS14 At Berkeley

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.06.25 PM

Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) co-founder Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist Karen Phelps are our interview guests today in Episode 830 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

As the popularity of the Paleo lifestyle has gained prominence in recent years, it shouldn’t be surprising that these people would want to gather together to learn about the latest scientific evidence supporting this way of eating. Plus, since Paleo is about great-tasting food and healthy living, the fellowship of the people involved in it having the opportunity to hang out, work out, and eat out together is something that must be fulfilled. Since 2011, that’s exactly what the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) has done. It started at University of California-Los Angeles that year, then went to Harvard in 2012, and Atlanta in 2013. This year’s event will take place August 7-9, 2014 at the University of California-Berkeley and REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Today we have AHS co-founder and fourth-year medical school student Brent Pottenger and AHS public relations specialist and Paleo blogger Karen Phelps sharing about what they have in store for #AHS14 at Berkeley.

Listen in as Jimmy, Brent and Karen dive into the details about AHS, whether the stereotype of AHS as a more academic (TRANSLATED: “stuffy”) setting is valid, the attempt at “storming the academic ivory tower” that has worked well, whether they have pursued getting CME accreditation for AHS, what AHS does very well and how it attracts people from all walks of life from around the world, the very “interesting” talks they have lined up for 2014, the poster, movement sessions, and panels (including a “top secret” one being announced soon) that are planned, the special BONUS day of lectures on August 10th honoring the late Seth Roberts, the “good-looking nerds” that attend this event, the two parallel rooms as well as movement sessions this year, videos of the talks will be posted on the Internet (hopefully!) afterwards, why if you want to miss a talk or two to meet up with people to build relationships, why they choose to focus on the “ancestral” community rather than Paleo, the “journal-type” recap idea they have for the AHS talks, how AHS is for anyone (even low-carbers) interested in being healthy, and so much more. If you’ve been thinking about coming to AHS14, listen to this podcast to hear plenty of reasons why YOU should be there.
