Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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.

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

795: LLVLC Classic – Low-Carb Weight & Health Expert Dr. Eric Westman

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 9.25.05 PM

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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.

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Study: Impaired glucose tolerance in low-carbohydrate diet: maybe only a physiological state

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Links mentioned in the response:
Study: Measuring HDL particles as opposed to HDL cholesterol is a a better indicator of coronary heart disease

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

795: LLVLC Classic – Low-Carb Weight & Health Expert Dr. Eric Westman

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 9.25.05 PM

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed.

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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.

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned.

Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

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.

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Study: Impaired glucose tolerance in low-carbohydrate diet: maybe only a physiological state
Gluten-free, raw, unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

795: LLVLC Classic – Low-Carb Weight & Health Expert Dr. Eric Westman

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 9.25.05 PM

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health.

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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.

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

795: LLVLC Classic – Low-Carb Weight & Health Expert Dr. Eric Westman

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 9.25.05 PM

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health.

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Study: Measuring HDL particles as opposed to HDL cholesterol is a a better indicator of coronary heart disease

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health.

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

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.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

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.

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

795: LLVLC Classic – Low-Carb Weight & Health Expert Dr. Eric Westman

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 9.25.05 PM

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

810: LLVLC Classic – Jackie Eberstein Carrying On The Legacy Of Dr. Atkins

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 3.58.01 AM

Registered nurse and Atkins low-carb diet expert Jackie Eberstein is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 810 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After Jimmy lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, one of the first people he “met” online was a registered nurse named Jackie Eberstein from “Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition” and co-author of the book Atkins Diabetes Revolution: The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes who had the distinct privilege and honor to work alongside the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City for nearly three decades. Fans of the annual Low-Carb Cruise will know and love Jackie as she has been the only keynote speaker to give a lecture annually at this event since they started doing an on-board conference back in 2009. Her knowledge and experience about anything and everything regarding the Atkins diet is unmatched and it’s our distinct privilege to share you with you this very special LLVLC Show Classic episode with some remarkable audio of this great woman.

Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Jackie in the first interview about some listener-submitted questions, funny memories she has about how she first met Dr. Atkins (when she thought he was a “quack”), her years of working with patients using low-carb diets, the impact of nutrition on fatty liver disease, the role of supplements on the Atkins diet, how diabetes could be helped immensely by a controlled-carbohydrate nutritional approach, how inflammation brought on by carbohydrate consumption is often ignored in chronic disease, the most common criticisms of low-carb diets, how to combat metabolic syndrome, and what she has been doing to carry on the legacy of Dr. Atkins. Then in the second interview, Jackie is back again to debunk all the latest attempts to discredit the Atkins diet with some amazing responses to the most common myths thrown around out there about healthy low-carb living. If you haven’t already, it’s time to fall in love with the incredible work of Jackie Eberstein in this LLVLC Show Classic episode!

799: Guest Host Angelo Coppola Dissects Recent ‘Meat As Bad As Smoking’ Study

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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.

796: Guest Host Ben Greenfield On Gaining Muscle On A Ketogenic Diet And More

Ben-Greenfield-Fitness

Coach, author, speaker, ex-bodybuilder, Ironman triathlete, and fitness and health podcaster Ben Greenfield is our special guest host in Episode 796 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve pulled out the big guns for today’s show with a highly-qualified special guest host. He is Ben Greenfield from the top-ranked “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” iTunes podcast where he is joined by his affable co-host Brock Skywalker. Ben is releasing his debut book from Victory Belt Publishing called Beyond Training: Mastering Endurance, Health & Life on April 15, 2014 all about how to overcome common health-related training issues while optimizing your workouts so you can look, feel, and perform like a champion.

Ben and Brock fill in for our host Jimmy Moore today (who is in the editing process of his August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet) by doing it in their familiar question and answer style of “The Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast. Here are the topics discussed in today’s show:

Should You Eat Before A Long Workout?

Robert: I’m a wild land firefighter and for training we do these extremely hard complete ass kicking hikes loaded down with gear that seriously take everything i got and you can not fall out. I’m trying to switch to being more of a fat burner than a sugar burner but I don’t have time to go keto before fire season. I read an article on your website saying the day prior to something hardcore you can carb up. My question is the night before the hike should I carb up before bed but eat any carbs in the morning before the hike? Or just protein and fat. I would love to use these hikes to train my body to burn fat, and am wondering if eating carbs right before it will keep my body trained on relying on carbs. No matter what though falling out of the hike is not an option. Please let me know your thoughts.

Getting Off A Ketogenic Diet Safely

Bill: Wants some tips on transitioning away from a ketogenic diet for competition. He is 57 and on a low carb diet (hybrid of bulletproof and meatless paleo). He is concentrating this race season on shorter distances (sprints and olympic triathlon) and and would like to return to the carb intensive nutrition he used to be on for heavy competition. Is this an either or situation? Does he have to give up all sources of healthy fats if he wants to eat more fast burning carbs? How should he balance the ratios of introducing carbs and reducing fat?

Can HDL Be Too High?

Suzanne: She wants to know when HDL could be too high and become a cause for concern. She is 40, fairly active, 120lbs, 5′ 5″, 14-16% body fat, and eats a paleo diet. She is working with a health practitioner that is inline with her paleo lifestyle. Recently her blood panel came back and the doc was concerned. HDL 200, Total Cholesterol 341, Triglycerids 40, LDL 131, CRP .2, Vit D is low at 28. Do you have any insite on that and how you would address her overly HDL levels. Doc is suggesting cutting her saturated fat intake. What are you thoughts on that.

David: He just looked at your lab reports and saw your “astronomically high” HDL readings. How do you get those readings so high? David is Paleo, low-carb and has been for about two years. He weight trains and does sprints and has never had a reading over 90. He wants to know how you do it!

Is distilled water healthy?

Luke: He heard a doctor say something on Jimmy Moore’s show about doing an annual 7-10 day fast where you drink only distilled water. He said that this is a good way to flush out toxins and prevent certain types of cancer. Luke is a triathlete and trains almost year round. If he was to do a fast like this, would it really damage his muscle and power? Perhaps even damage his health. Do you recommend this type of thing at all?

Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet

Tanner: He listened to the Paleocon speech by Ameer Rosic on Ketogenic Diets. He said that Ketogenic diets may not be great for athletes and people who are trying to gain muscle and strength because of the IGF response. Can you shed some light on how these hormones effect each other. Cortisol, insulin, HGH and IGF1 any help and info on the relationship between ketogenic diets and muscle growth.

795: LLVLC Classic – Low-Carb Weight & Health Expert Dr. Eric Westman

Screen Shot 2014-03-17 at 9.25.05 PM

Duke University low-carb researcher and practitioner Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 795 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

We’ve had on a lot of great guests over the years on this podcast as Jimmy has connected with so many fantastic medical doctors, researchers, authors and more. And today’s LLVLC Show Classic episode features someone who falls into all of those categories and more. He’s an internist from Durham, North Carolina named Dr. Eric Westman and he certainly needs no introduction to the low-carb community. Dr. Westman is arguably the #1 low-carb diet expert in the world today publishing dozens of research papers on the positive health benefits of carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diets. He’s the current President of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) for 2014-2015 and was one of the coauthors on the 2010 New York Times bestselling book The New Atkins For A New You. These days he is helping patients with obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions with a low-carb, high-fat diet.

DR. WESTMAN’S LOW-CARB PATIENT EDUCATION CLASS

http://youtu.be/dSLf4bzAyOM
Long before he was on the front cover of Woman’s World Magazine in January 2014, giving lectures on The Low-Carb Cruise, or coauthoring the books Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity with our host Jimmy Moore, he was sharing his thoughts about the role of low-carb diets in health on this show. Listen in as you’ll hear back-to-back interviews with Dr. Westman. First up is one of Jimmy’s very first interviews ever from many years ago when he attended an ASBP conference with Dr. Westman and a bunch of obesity medicine doctors in Nashville, Tennessee. Then we’ll hear all about the latest version of the Atkins diet that Dr. Westman collaborated with Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek on in 2010. This was the beginning of the messaging of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet in earnest that has become increasingly popular in the years that have followed. If you’re not familiar with the great work of Dr. Eric Westman, meet the man at the heart of promoting the latest low-carb science.
