After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

Australian general practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Zeeshan Arain is our interview guest today in a series of exclusive podcasts featuring the various experts from Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity in Episode 847 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more!

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

Screen Shot 2014-07-27 at 8.55.41 PM

Australian general practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Zeeshan Arain is our interview guest today in a series of exclusive podcasts featuring the various experts from Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity in Episode 847 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

Screen Shot 2014-07-27 at 8.55.41 PM

Australian general practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Zeeshan Arain is our interview guest today in a series of exclusive podcasts featuring the various experts from Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity in Episode 847 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 2.48.22 PM

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

Screen Shot 2014-07-27 at 8.55.41 PM

Australian general practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Zeeshan Arain is our interview guest today in a series of exclusive podcasts featuring the various experts from Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity in Episode 847 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

Australian general practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Zeeshan Arain is our interview guest today in a series of exclusive podcasts featuring the various experts from Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity in Episode 847 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

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

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 9.18.14 AM

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

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

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

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 9.18.14 AM

A husband-wife team who were in attendance on the 7th Annual Low-Carb Cruise in 2014 named George & Tina Pauley are our interview guests today in Episode 839 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The year 2014 marked the seventh annual Low-Carb Cruise event that Jimmy helps lead and it attracts people from all around the world to come hear the guest speakers, enjoy the company of fellow low-carb and Paleo enthusiasts, and visit some of the most exotic places on Earth while relaxing on a cruise. For Chandler, Arizona-based couple and LLVLC Show super fans George and Tina Pauley, this was their very first Low-Carb Cruise but they made the most of it. Software engineers by day and low-carb-success-stories-turned-nutrition-evangelists the rest of the time, these two are pretty hilarious as you will quickly hear in their conversation with Jimmy.

Listen in as Jimmy, George and Tina all recollect on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise, their foray into low-carb dieting for different reasons, Tina’s bout with necrotizing fasciitis (aka “flesh eating bacteria”), how they became patients of low-carb/Paleo physician Dr. Rocky Patel, the amazing camaraderie of the people who attended this event, why they changed their minds about not sticking to low-carb on the cruise, the incredible access to the guest speakers who attended, the education that took place outside of the conference times, butter with your food and no bread really does happen on the Low-Carb Cruise, the ease of staying low-carb on a cruise, free rum on the Virgin Islands, and lots of silliness all along the way! You can tell these three got along quite well on that big boat in the ocean and they’re looking forward to doing it all again in 2015 (DETAILS COMING SOON!).

834: Sarah Wilson Takes A Stealth Approach To Taking Paleo To The Mainstream

Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 9.35.54 PM

Australian journalist and New York Times bestselling author Sarah Wilson is our interview guest today in Episode 834 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Although Paleo and low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) have become more readily accepted in our culture in recent years, there is still a large segment of the population who have never even heard of these concepts because they’re still stuck on the concepts that your body needs carbohydrates and that dietary fat will make you fat and clog your arteries. But some proponents of these lifestyle changes have taken a more stealth approach to getting the message out by simply describing the basic tenets of these programs as healthy without overtly giving them a name. For the popular Australian blogger and New York Times bestselling author of the book I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook named Sarah Wilson, she believes this is a much more prudent way to get people on the right track with their health goals.

Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about her autoimmune issues that were exacerbated by her high-carb diet, stressed body and overexercising lifestyle, when she “crashed” she needed to “get creative” to restore her health, the various experiments that she tried to get better that included giving up sugar for two weeks, the massive improvements she saw when she greatly reduced her sugar intake, her commitment was at a “low level” and yet she still saw benefits, how she is “modulating” her disease with nutritional changes, why labeling the diet she is doing isn’t as important to her, the focus she places on positive nutritional choices rather than what you can’t eat, how “going gently” can be a very effective way for people to change, although she’s very much in the camp of low-carb and Paleo her approach is to reach the masses, how she approaches sharing about the impact of carbohydrates on health with people, how her popular book actually started as a blog post and a column, her chat with Gary Taubes about sugar, why most of the “sugar-free” cookbooks aren’t that great, the two sweeteners she thinks are the best, why health experts love agave syrup as a healthy alternative sweetener, the state of Australian nutritional health policy, how sugar is hidden on the nutritional label, the real food culture that is abundant in Australia, what it would be like for Sarah to visit the Southern United States, the Paleo restaurants located in Sydney and throughout Australia, and more. This is one of the most influential global voices in the real food movement and we’re pleased to share her work with you today.

832: Hank Garner Speaks Sincerely Of His Struggles After Low-Carb Success

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.27.13 PM

Former low-carb blogger and podcaster Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 832 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb community is growing so fast thanks to the efforts of the hard-working people whose lives have been changed by this way of eating. So many low-carb success stories go on to become active on social media, in the blogosphere, and even in the health podcasting world. And it wasn’t that long ago in 2011 when >Hank Garner was one such story (listen to Jimmy’s interview with Hank in Episode 487) with an incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.

But then it happened.

It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.

Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.

847: Dr. Zeeshan Arain – KETO CLARITY Expert Interview

Screen Shot 2014-07-27 at 8.55.41 PM

Australian general practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Zeeshan Arain is our interview guest today in a series of exclusive podcasts featuring the various experts from Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity in Episode 847 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending most of the past year researching, writing, and editing the manuscript to his book about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, our host Jimmy Moore has completed that project and is ready to unleash it on the world. It’s called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and features Jimmy’s coauthor internist and Duke University low-carb diet researcher Dr. Eric Westman as well as 22 of the world’s best experts on ketogenic diets. If you were a fan of the format of their 2013 bestselling book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, then you won’t be disappointed in this new book as it is written in the same easy-to-understand language with frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes from the featured experts as well as “Doctor’s Note” entries from Dr. Westman. In the next few weeks, we will be featuring BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS (these aren’t the same interviews Jimmy conducted with them for the book) about ketosis and health with many of these experts for you to enjoy!

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a general practitioner down in Melbourne, Australia named Dr. Zeeshan Arain, who is also the team doctor for the Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League. He has a particular interest in the role of nutrition and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and obesity. After trying nutritional ketosis and finding good results with it beginning in 2012, Dr. Arain has now personally treated hundreds of patients using a well-formulated low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet to manage a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, hypertension, epilepsy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s a frequent lecturer on this topic (listen to a rebroadcast of Dr. Arain’s lectures in Episode 818 and Episode 760) and is in the process of developing a research study on the therapeutic effects of ketones. We’re just getting started with these exciting new interviews we’ll be sharing in the coming weeks about the health benefits of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet featuring the various experts in Keto Clarity.
