In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has audio from someone who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone from “30 Bananas A Day” and his famous YouTube channel. What’s interesting is Jimmy attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you’ve ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has a flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That’s what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).


Jimmy met Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia last year

Listen in as Jimmy and Harley discuss the health problems he dealt with growing up, what a high-carb raw vegan diet looks like, why 70-minute daily exercise isn’t enough, why he thinks some people gain weight when they eat carbs, his assertion that there are no low-carb Paleo success stories and his challenge to prove it works, the purpose of his arrogant style in presenting his message, why he believes everyone should be vegan and how to succeed at it, how he prevents hunger on his vegan diet, why he thinks people should be eating at least 30 bananas a day, why he’s no fan of calorie-counting, how ketones play a role in fueling his body on his cycling race days, how he views exercise as the stimulant for eating more food, where we agree the most on the subject of nutrition, why he prefers fruit and fruit juices over any other food, why he doesn’t believe there are ketogenic athletes, why he thinks it’s not a big deal that vegans need to supplement with Vitamin B12, why raw veganism hasn’t caught on as much as he would like and whether it can be sustainable, and whether consuming animal foods is ever appropriate for people to eat. If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews Jimmy has ever conducted in the history of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

697: Dr. David Diamond Responds To McDougall’s Starch-Based Society Claims

Psychology professor Dr. David Diamond is our guest today in Episode 697 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Play

David Diamond, Ph.D. was like any other American in dealing with his health. He obediently ate the high-carb diet with lots of whole grains while faithfully cutting his fat intake as a means for getting healthy. There was only one problem–his triglycerides were through the roof! This University of South Florida College of Arts and Sciences department faculty member wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing, so he started researching into what he could do to reduce his soaring triglyceride levels and take off a few extra pounds that had crept on.

That’s when he discovered the low-carb lifestyle that would allow him to consume foods like red meat, eggs and butter–and his triglycerides dropped like a rock without medications! He became so passionate about this topic that he created a college class about the lies and distortions we’ve been told about public health and he was invited to give a lecture about it on campus entitled “How Bad Science and Big Business Created the Obesity Epidemic” and it’s gone viral with over 85,000+ views and counting:


http://youtu.be/3vr-c8GeT34

Listen in to today’s interview as Jimmy and Dr. Diamond talk about his personal health journey, how the vegan diet advocates like Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. John McDougall are incredibly shortsighted in the way they think about the role of nutrition and health and why he doesn’t seek out attention or accolades for the work he is doing educating the public. We have a feeling you’re gonna REALLY enjoy this one from one of the featured experts in Jimmy’s forthcoming August 27, 2013 book release Cholesterol Clarity.

686: Dr. John McDougall Explains Why Everyone Should Be Eating Starchy Carbs

Play

After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!

621: 26-Year Vegan John Nicholson Shares How Meat Fixed His Health

mugshot_46_original

Former vegan and UK-based author John Nicholson is our guest today in Episode 621 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Play

Veganism has become so entrenched in our society as the epitome of “healthy living” that so many people buy into it fully without understanding the hidden consequences of eating this way. Just ask John Nicholson who committed over half of his life to vegetarianism and ultimately to being a vegan for 18 of those years until he began noticing a rather precipitous decline in his health while gaining weight. It wasn’t until his 32-year life partner Dawn, who had been there with John from the time he first embraced plant-based eating, suggested they start eating meat again to regain their health that he made the fateful decision to consume animal products again for the first time in 26 years.

Their switch from a low-fat vegan diet to a high-fat meat-based diet was aided in part by the influence of a former vegan named Lierre Keith and her groundbreaking book exposing the dangers of vegetarian/vegan diets called The Vegetarian Myth (listen to my interview with Lierre in Episode 334 here). John experienced such a quick and dramatic improvement in so many aspects of his health once he added meat back into his diet again that he began on a mission to tell as many people as he could about how animal-based foods saved his health and life. He published a fantastic book about his experience in 2012 called The Meat Fix: How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me! that he hopes will influence other disillusioned vegans who desperately need to put some meat back into their diet again.

There was only one problem–his triglycerides were through the roof! This University of South Florida College of Arts and Sciences department faculty member wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing, so he started researching into what he could do to reduce his soaring triglyceride levels and take off a few extra pounds that had crept on.

That’s when he discovered the low-carb lifestyle that would allow him to consume foods like red meat, eggs and butter–and his triglycerides dropped like a rock without medications! He became so passionate about this topic that he created a college class about the lies and distortions we’ve been told about public health and he was invited to give a lecture about it on campus entitled “How Bad Science and Big Business Created the Obesity Epidemic” and it’s gone viral with over 85,000+ views and counting:

Outspoken vegan physician and author Dr. John McDougall is our guest today in Episode 686 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Play

After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!

621: 26-Year Vegan John Nicholson Shares How Meat Fixed His Health

mugshot_46_original

Former vegan and UK-based author John Nicholson is our guest today in Episode 621 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Play

Veganism has become so entrenched in our society as the epitome of “healthy living” that so many people buy into it fully without understanding the hidden consequences of eating this way. Just ask John Nicholson who committed over half of his life to vegetarianism and ultimately to being a vegan for 18 of those years until he began noticing a rather precipitous decline in his health while gaining weight. It wasn’t until his 32-year life partner Dawn, who had been there with John from the time he first embraced plant-based eating, suggested they start eating meat again to regain their health that he made the fateful decision to consume animal products again for the first time in 26 years.

Their switch from a low-fat vegan diet to a high-fat meat-based diet was aided in part by the influence of a former vegan named Lierre Keith and her groundbreaking book exposing the dangers of vegetarian/vegan diets called The Vegetarian Myth (listen to my interview with Lierre in Episode 334 here). John experienced such a quick and dramatic improvement in so many aspects of his health once he added meat back into his diet again that he began on a mission to tell as many people as he could about how animal-based foods saved his health and life. He published a fantastic book about his experience in 2012 called The Meat Fix: How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me! that he hopes will influence other disillusioned vegans who desperately need to put some meat back into their diet again.

981: LLVLC Classic – Harley Johnstone aka Durianrider On Why He’s A Raw Vegan

Screen Shot 2015-07-10 at 6.59.51 AM

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has audio from someone who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone from “30 Bananas A Day” and his famous YouTube channel. What’s interesting is Jimmy attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you’ve ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has a flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That’s what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).


Jimmy met Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia last year

Listen in as Jimmy and Harley discuss the health problems he dealt with growing up, what a high-carb raw vegan diet looks like, why 70-minute daily exercise isn’t enough, why he thinks some people gain weight when they eat carbs, his assertion that there are no low-carb Paleo success stories and his challenge to prove it works, the purpose of his arrogant style in presenting his message, why he believes everyone should be vegan and how to succeed at it, how he prevents hunger on his vegan diet, why he thinks people should be eating at least 30 bananas a day, why he’s no fan of calorie-counting, how ketones play a role in fueling his body on his cycling race days, how he views exercise as the stimulant for eating more food, where we agree the most on the subject of nutrition, why he prefers fruit and fruit juices over any other food, why he doesn’t believe there are ketogenic athletes, why he thinks it’s not a big deal that vegans need to supplement with Vitamin B12, why raw veganism hasn’t caught on as much as he would like and whether it can be sustainable, and whether consuming animal foods is ever appropriate for people to eat. If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews Jimmy has ever conducted in the history of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Livestock rancher, environmental lawyer, sustainable food advocate, and author Nicolette Hahn Niman is our guest today in Episode 955 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

It wasn’t until his 32-year life partner Dawn, who had been there with John from the time he first embraced plant-based eating, suggested they start eating meat again to regain their health that he made the fateful decision to consume animal products again for the first time in 26 years.

Their switch from a low-fat vegan diet to a high-fat meat-based diet was aided in part by the influence of a former vegan named Lierre Keith and her groundbreaking book exposing the dangers of vegetarian/vegan diets called The Vegetarian Myth (listen to my interview with Lierre in Episode 334 here). John experienced such a quick and dramatic improvement in so many aspects of his health once he added meat back into his diet again that he began on a mission to tell as many people as he could about how animal-based foods saved his health and life. He published a fantastic book about his experience in 2012 called The Meat Fix: How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me! that he hopes will influence other disillusioned vegans who desperately need to put some meat back into their diet again.

981: LLVLC Classic – Harley Johnstone aka Durianrider On Why He’s A Raw Vegan

Screen Shot 2015-07-10 at 6.59.51 AM

Raw vegan activist and cyclist Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 981 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has audio from someone who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone from “30 Bananas A Day” and his famous YouTube channel. What’s interesting is Jimmy attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you’ve ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has a flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That’s what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).


Jimmy met Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia last year

Listen in as Jimmy and Harley discuss the health problems he dealt with growing up, what a high-carb raw vegan diet looks like, why 70-minute daily exercise isn’t enough, why he thinks some people gain weight when they eat carbs, his assertion that there are no low-carb Paleo success stories and his challenge to prove it works, the purpose of his arrogant style in presenting his message, why he believes everyone should be vegan and how to succeed at it, how he prevents hunger on his vegan diet, why he thinks people should be eating at least 30 bananas a day, why he’s no fan of calorie-counting, how ketones play a role in fueling his body on his cycling race days, how he views exercise as the stimulant for eating more food, where we agree the most on the subject of nutrition, why he prefers fruit and fruit juices over any other food, why he doesn’t believe there are ketogenic athletes, why he thinks it’s not a big deal that vegans need to supplement with Vitamin B12, why raw veganism hasn’t caught on as much as he would like and whether it can be sustainable, and whether consuming animal foods is ever appropriate for people to eat. If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews Jimmy has ever conducted in the history of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 7.14.49 AM

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

Psychology professor Dr. David Diamond is our guest today in Episode 697 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Play

David Diamond, Ph.D. was like any other American in dealing with his health. He obediently ate the high-carb diet with lots of whole grains while faithfully cutting his fat intake as a means for getting healthy. There was only one problem–his triglycerides were through the roof! This University of South Florida College of Arts and Sciences department faculty member wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing, so he started researching into what he could do to reduce his soaring triglyceride levels and take off a few extra pounds that had crept on.

That’s when he discovered the low-carb lifestyle that would allow him to consume foods like red meat, eggs and butter–and his triglycerides dropped like a rock without medications! He became so passionate about this topic that he created a college class about the lies and distortions we’ve been told about public health and he was invited to give a lecture about it on campus entitled “How Bad Science and Big Business Created the Obesity Epidemic” and it’s gone viral with over 85,000+ views and counting:


http://youtu.be/3vr-c8GeT34

Listen in to today’s interview as Jimmy and Dr. Diamond talk about his personal health journey, how the vegan diet advocates like Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. John McDougall are incredibly shortsighted in the way they think about the role of nutrition and health and why he doesn’t seek out attention or accolades for the work he is doing educating the public. We have a feeling you’re gonna REALLY enjoy this one from one of the featured experts in Jimmy’s forthcoming August 27, 2013 book release Cholesterol Clarity.

Play

After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

697: Dr. David Diamond Responds To McDougall’s Starch-Based Society Claims

Psychology professor Dr. David Diamond is our guest today in Episode 697 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

David Diamond, Ph.D. was like any other American in dealing with his health. He obediently ate the high-carb diet with lots of whole grains while faithfully cutting his fat intake as a means for getting healthy. There was only one problem–his triglycerides were through the roof! This University of South Florida College of Arts and Sciences department faculty member wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing, so he started researching into what he could do to reduce his soaring triglyceride levels and take off a few extra pounds that had crept on.

That’s when he discovered the low-carb lifestyle that would allow him to consume foods like red meat, eggs and butter–and his triglycerides dropped like a rock without medications! He became so passionate about this topic that he created a college class about the lies and distortions we’ve been told about public health and he was invited to give a lecture about it on campus entitled “How Bad Science and Big Business Created the Obesity Epidemic” and it’s gone viral with over 85,000+ views and counting:


http://youtu.be/3vr-c8GeT34

Listen in to today’s interview as Jimmy and Dr. Diamond talk about his personal health journey, how the vegan diet advocates like Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. John McDougall are incredibly shortsighted in the way they think about the role of nutrition and health and why he doesn’t seek out attention or accolades for the work he is doing educating the public. We have a feeling you’re gonna REALLY enjoy this one from one of the featured experts in Jimmy’s forthcoming August 27, 2013 book release Cholesterol Clarity.

After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!

621: 26-Year Vegan John Nicholson Shares How Meat Fixed His Health

mugshot_46_original

Former vegan and UK-based author John Nicholson is our guest today in Episode 621 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Play

Veganism has become so entrenched in our society as the epitome of “healthy living” that so many people buy into it fully without understanding the hidden consequences of eating this way. Just ask John Nicholson who committed over half of his life to vegetarianism and ultimately to being a vegan for 18 of those years until he began noticing a rather precipitous decline in his health while gaining weight. It wasn’t until his 32-year life partner Dawn, who had been there with John from the time he first embraced plant-based eating, suggested they start eating meat again to regain their health that he made the fateful decision to consume animal products again for the first time in 26 years.

Their switch from a low-fat vegan diet to a high-fat meat-based diet was aided in part by the influence of a former vegan named Lierre Keith and her groundbreaking book exposing the dangers of vegetarian/vegan diets called The Vegetarian Myth (listen to my interview with Lierre in Episode 334 here). John experienced such a quick and dramatic improvement in so many aspects of his health once he added meat back into his diet again that he began on a mission to tell as many people as he could about how animal-based foods saved his health and life. He published a fantastic book about his experience in 2012 called The Meat Fix: How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me! that he hopes will influence other disillusioned vegans who desperately need to put some meat back into their diet again.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has audio from someone who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone from “30 Bananas A Day” and his famous YouTube channel. What’s interesting is Jimmy attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you’ve ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has a flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That’s what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).


Jimmy met Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia last year

Listen in as Jimmy and Harley discuss the health problems he dealt with growing up, what a high-carb raw vegan diet looks like, why 70-minute daily exercise isn’t enough, why he thinks some people gain weight when they eat carbs, his assertion that there are no low-carb Paleo success stories and his challenge to prove it works, the purpose of his arrogant style in presenting his message, why he believes everyone should be vegan and how to succeed at it, how he prevents hunger on his vegan diet, why he thinks people should be eating at least 30 bananas a day, why he’s no fan of calorie-counting, how ketones play a role in fueling his body on his cycling race days, how he views exercise as the stimulant for eating more food, where we agree the most on the subject of nutrition, why he prefers fruit and fruit juices over any other food, why he doesn’t believe there are ketogenic athletes, why he thinks it’s not a big deal that vegans need to supplement with Vitamin B12, why raw veganism hasn’t caught on as much as he would like and whether it can be sustainable, and whether consuming animal foods is ever appropriate for people to eat. If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews Jimmy has ever conducted in the history of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

621: 26-Year Vegan John Nicholson Shares How Meat Fixed His Health

mugshot_46_original

Former vegan and UK-based author John Nicholson is our guest today in Episode 621 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Play

Veganism has become so entrenched in our society as the epitome of “healthy living” that so many people buy into it fully without understanding the hidden consequences of eating this way. Just ask John Nicholson who committed over half of his life to vegetarianism and ultimately to being a vegan for 18 of those years until he began noticing a rather precipitous decline in his health while gaining weight. It wasn’t until his 32-year life partner Dawn, who had been there with John from the time he first embraced plant-based eating, suggested they start eating meat again to regain their health that he made the fateful decision to consume animal products again for the first time in 26 years.

Their switch from a low-fat vegan diet to a high-fat meat-based diet was aided in part by the influence of a former vegan named Lierre Keith and her groundbreaking book exposing the dangers of vegetarian/vegan diets called The Vegetarian Myth (listen to my interview with Lierre in Episode 334 here). John experienced such a quick and dramatic improvement in so many aspects of his health once he added meat back into his diet again that he began on a mission to tell as many people as he could about how animal-based foods saved his health and life. He published a fantastic book about his experience in 2012 called The Meat Fix: How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me! that he hopes will influence other disillusioned vegans who desperately need to put some meat back into their diet again.

981: LLVLC Classic – Harley Johnstone aka Durianrider On Why He’s A Raw Vegan

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has audio from someone who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone from “30 Bananas A Day” and his famous YouTube channel. What’s interesting is Jimmy attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you’ve ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has a flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That’s what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).


Jimmy met Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia last year

Listen in as Jimmy and Harley discuss the health problems he dealt with growing up, what a high-carb raw vegan diet looks like, why 70-minute daily exercise isn’t enough, why he thinks some people gain weight when they eat carbs, his assertion that there are no low-carb Paleo success stories and his challenge to prove it works, the purpose of his arrogant style in presenting his message, why he believes everyone should be vegan and how to succeed at it, how he prevents hunger on his vegan diet, why he thinks people should be eating at least 30 bananas a day, why he’s no fan of calorie-counting, how ketones play a role in fueling his body on his cycling race days, how he views exercise as the stimulant for eating more food, where we agree the most on the subject of nutrition, why he prefers fruit and fruit juices over any other food, why he doesn’t believe there are ketogenic athletes, why he thinks it’s not a big deal that vegans need to supplement with Vitamin B12, why raw veganism hasn’t caught on as much as he would like and whether it can be sustainable, and whether consuming animal foods is ever appropriate for people to eat. If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews Jimmy has ever conducted in the history of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 7.14.49 AM

Livestock rancher, environmental lawyer, sustainable food advocate, and author Nicolette Hahn Niman is our guest today in Episode 955 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

Psychology professor Dr. David Diamond is our guest today in Episode 697 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Play

David Diamond, Ph.D. was like any other American in dealing with his health. He obediently ate the high-carb diet with lots of whole grains while faithfully cutting his fat intake as a means for getting healthy. There was only one problem–his triglycerides were through the roof! This University of South Florida College of Arts and Sciences department faculty member wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing, so he started researching into what he could do to reduce his soaring triglyceride levels and take off a few extra pounds that had crept on.

That’s when he discovered the low-carb lifestyle that would allow him to consume foods like red meat, eggs and butter–and his triglycerides dropped like a rock without medications! He became so passionate about this topic that he created a college class about the lies and distortions we’ve been told about public health and he was invited to give a lecture about it on campus entitled “How Bad Science and Big Business Created the Obesity Epidemic” and it’s gone viral with over 85,000+ views and counting:


http://youtu.be/3vr-c8GeT34

Listen in to today’s interview as Jimmy and Dr. Diamond talk about his personal health journey, how the vegan diet advocates like Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. John McDougall are incredibly shortsighted in the way they think about the role of nutrition and health and why he doesn’t seek out attention or accolades for the work he is doing educating the public. We have a feeling you’re gonna REALLY enjoy this one from one of the featured experts in Jimmy’s forthcoming August 27, 2013 book release Cholesterol Clarity.

After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!

If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews Jimmy has ever conducted in the history of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Livestock rancher, environmental lawyer, sustainable food advocate, and author Nicolette Hahn Niman is our guest today in Episode 955 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

697: Dr. David Diamond Responds To McDougall’s Starch-Based Society Claims

Psychology professor Dr. David Diamond is our guest today in Episode 697 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

David Diamond, Ph.D. was like any other American in dealing with his health. He obediently ate the high-carb diet with lots of whole grains while faithfully cutting his fat intake as a means for getting healthy. There was only one problem–his triglycerides were through the roof! This University of South Florida College of Arts and Sciences department faculty member wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing, so he started researching into what he could do to reduce his soaring triglyceride levels and take off a few extra pounds that had crept on.

That’s when he discovered the low-carb lifestyle that would allow him to consume foods like red meat, eggs and butter–and his triglycerides dropped like a rock without medications! He became so passionate about this topic that he created a college class about the lies and distortions we’ve been told about public health and he was invited to give a lecture about it on campus entitled “How Bad Science and Big Business Created the Obesity Epidemic” and it’s gone viral with over 85,000+ views and counting:


http://youtu.be/3vr-c8GeT34

Listen in to today’s interview as Jimmy and Dr. Diamond talk about his personal health journey, how the vegan diet advocates like Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. John McDougall are incredibly shortsighted in the way they think about the role of nutrition and health and why he doesn’t seek out attention or accolades for the work he is doing educating the public. We have a feeling you’re gonna REALLY enjoy this one from one of the featured experts in Jimmy’s forthcoming August 27, 2013 book release Cholesterol Clarity.

686: Dr. John McDougall Explains Why Everyone Should Be Eating Starchy Carbs

Outspoken vegan physician and author Dr. John McDougall is our guest today in Episode 686 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Play

After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!

621: 26-Year Vegan John Nicholson Shares How Meat Fixed His Health

mugshot_46_original

Former vegan and UK-based author John Nicholson is our guest today in Episode 621 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Play

Veganism has become so entrenched in our society as the epitome of “healthy living” that so many people buy into it fully without understanding the hidden consequences of eating this way. Just ask John Nicholson who committed over half of his life to vegetarianism and ultimately to being a vegan for 18 of those years until he began noticing a rather precipitous decline in his health while gaining weight. It wasn’t until his 32-year life partner Dawn, who had been there with John from the time he first embraced plant-based eating, suggested they start eating meat again to regain their health that he made the fateful decision to consume animal products again for the first time in 26 years.

Their switch from a low-fat vegan diet to a high-fat meat-based diet was aided in part by the influence of a former vegan named Lierre Keith and her groundbreaking book exposing the dangers of vegetarian/vegan diets called The Vegetarian Myth (listen to my interview with Lierre in Episode 334 here). John experienced such a quick and dramatic improvement in so many aspects of his health once he added meat back into his diet again that he began on a mission to tell as many people as he could about how animal-based foods saved his health and life. He published a fantastic book about his experience in 2012 called The Meat Fix: How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me! that he hopes will influence other disillusioned vegans who desperately need to put some meat back into their diet again.

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he’s airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has audio from someone who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone from “30 Bananas A Day” and his famous YouTube channel. What’s interesting is Jimmy attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you’ve ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has a flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That’s what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).


Jimmy met Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia last year

After months of being away from this podcast while writing the manuscript to his forthcoming August 27, 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, our host Jimmy Moore is back in his rightful place again interviewing the top names in the world of diet, fitness and health. Jimmy wanted to make sure his first episode back was a memorable one and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be one of the most-listened to interviews he’s ever done. We wanted to find someone who would be intriguing, engaging and even a bit controversial to get Jimmy back into the fray again. BOY DID WE EVER!

TheStarchSolution_250x325 Dr. John McDougall, author of The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!, is arguably the most famous proponent of a starch-based vegan diet in the world and graciously accepted Jimmy’s invitation to appear on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Since Jimmy has had respectful and cordial conversations with other vegan advocates such as Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Neal Barnard in the past, he was more than pleased to hear what Dr. McDougall had to share regarding his nutritional philosophies. Unfortunately, somebody forgot to send Dr. McDougall the memo that Jimmy Moore’s a nice guy.

This episode is an instant classic that you will find extremely entertaining for a variety of reasons. Whether you are Paleo, low-carb, vegan or vegetarian, something tells us you won’t be able to resist listening from start to finish and then wanting to go back and listen again and again! While Jimmy attempted to remain civil in discussing nutrition with Dr. McDougall, it quickly became apparent that Dr. McDougall was more interested in disparaging and mocking our host for being overweight and unhealthy despite the fact that he weighs less and is healthier today than he has ever been in his entire adult life. Hold on to your hats as you listen to this one, folks, because it’s a wild and bumpy ride! ENJOY!

621: 26-Year Vegan John Nicholson Shares How Meat Fixed His Health

Former vegan and UK-based author John Nicholson is our guest today in Episode 621 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Veganism has become so entrenched in our society as the epitome of “healthy living” that so many people buy into it fully without understanding the hidden consequences of eating this way. Just ask John Nicholson who committed over half of his life to vegetarianism and ultimately to being a vegan for 18 of those years until he began noticing a rather precipitous decline in his health while gaining weight. It wasn’t until his 32-year life partner Dawn, who had been there with John from the time he first embraced plant-based eating, suggested they start eating meat again to regain their health that he made the fateful decision to consume animal products again for the first time in 26 years.

Their switch from a low-fat vegan diet to a high-fat meat-based diet was aided in part by the influence of a former vegan named Lierre Keith and her groundbreaking book exposing the dangers of vegetarian/vegan diets called The Vegetarian Myth (listen to my interview with Lierre in Episode 334 here). John experienced such a quick and dramatic improvement in so many aspects of his health once he added meat back into his diet again that he began on a mission to tell as many people as he could about how animal-based foods saved his health and life. He published a fantastic book about his experience in 2012 called The Meat Fix: How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me! that he hopes will influence other disillusioned vegans who desperately need to put some meat back into their diet again.
