In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Type 1 diabetic and grain-free, ketogenic business owner Katie Coleman is our guest today in Episode 928 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her “obsessed” with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer’s disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We’ve always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

944: Zach Bitter Is An Ultramarathon World Champion Fueled By LCHF

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it’s a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy’s featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you’ve never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet!

Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about their highly-anticipated new book, how the collaboration on this cookbook happened after the runaway success of Keto Clarity in 2014, why a ketogenic diet seems complex to people, why some people are so super-sensitive to carbohydrates that they have to be careful even with lemon juice and spaghetti squash, why they used the word Paleo in the subtitle of their book, how almond flour can prevent ketosis, the cookbook is huge (nearly 400 pages!), how their spouses (Craig and Christine) were involved in this book, the abundance of treats that were included in the book, how the vegetarian recipes and meal plans are the most ketogenic in the book, there’s even a keto bread recipe in the book, how she had to take photos for the cookbook with snow on the ground, how the publisher wanted to put a sandwich on the front cover, the gorgeous front cover that was created by Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from The Primal Palate, the front matter material that is new information that wasn’t included in Jimmy’s Keto Clarity and Maria’s Keto-Adapted, how ketones are very normal, how Maria’s little boys eat ketogenic, how kid-friendly these recipes are, how she left the avocado off of one of her recipe photos, the meal plans provided in the back of the book for various conditions, her slow cooker recipes throughout the book, the recipe index with a little picture of the recipe with the name of the recipe and page number next to it, why there is a real food emphasis in this book, how people are surprised by how easy it is to make things like mayo, how the inferior omega-6 fats don’t satisfy like saturated fats, the three New York Times bestselling authors who endorsed the book on the back cover, and how Costco Canada is carrying the book in all their stores.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the “Evolutionary Psychiatry” blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she’s one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the “woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine,” the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It’s another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t want to miss.

There’s this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he’s a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA’s 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss how we was always active growing up, why ultra running became appealing to him, his old 60-70% carbohydrate endurance diet prior to discovering LCHF, the negative things he noticed in his health, including sleep, water retention, and gut health issues, the positive changes he saw when he shifted to a more ketogenic approach, what his keto-adaptation period was like, how he was used to running in a fasted state during his training prior to going full-on ketogenic, how his macronutrient ratio shifted from pre-LCHF to now, how he never really ate a lot of bread in his diet, what he says to people who believe a high-carb, grain-free approach would give him good results, why he loves using coconut-based products as his primary source of fat, the perception that people think he’s eating meat non-stop (but he doesn’t because it’s too much protein), his testing at Dr. Jeff Volek’s lab helping him fine-tune his diet, how your macronutrient intake will likely change the longer your body becomes used to being fat-adapted, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, how improving his sleep and other lifestyle factors helped improve his performance, how his cholesterol markers all markedly improved eating LCHF, how much his inflammation levels have come done, what race day looks like for him in his diet, the wasp extract from the VESPA Power Products company that he uses for endurance over long distances (a ketone booster!), why he doesn’t really use much gels during races anymore, the banana chips cooked in coconut oil that help him keep good fats and a bit of carbohydrates for fuel, whether he’s ever used other exogenous sources of ketones like ketone esters, how to find the right balance of fat and carbohydrates that enable an endurance athlete to compete well, why running faster races like a 5k doesn’t necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won’t want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.06.20 AM

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.
