Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

959: Kai Hibbard Says The Biggest Loser Is Publicly Fat Shaming Contestants

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 7.22.22 PM

Board-certified gynecologist, physician-scientist, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried is our guest today in Episode 936 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 7.22.22 PM

Board-certified gynecologist, physician-scientist, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried is our guest today in Episode 936 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting.

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

959: Kai Hibbard Says The Biggest Loser Is Publicly Fat Shaming Contestants

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

936: Dr. Sara Gottfried Offers Controversial Strategies For Resetting Your Hormones

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 7.22.22 PM

Board-certified gynecologist, physician-scientist, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried is our guest today in Episode 936 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

959: Kai Hibbard Says The Biggest Loser Is Publicly Fat Shaming Contestants

Screen Shot 2015-05-10 at 6.13.17 PM

Former Biggest Loser contestant and positive body image advocate Kai Hibbard is our guest today in Episode 959 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

959: Kai Hibbard Says The Biggest Loser Is Publicly Fat Shaming Contestants

Former Biggest Loser contestant and positive body image advocate Kai Hibbard is our guest today in Episode 959 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Screen Shot 2015-04-19 at 4.14.08 PM

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Today we have arguably the most unique episode we’ve ever done in the history of this podcast. While the vast majority of the interviews conducted on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” have featured Jimmy speaking with medical doctors, researchers, nutritional health experts, and more, what you will hear today is something far different than that. Jimmy has been dealing with some inexplicable weight gain over the past couple of years despite having an immaculate low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. This caught the attention of a big fan of this show and a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive. He offered to conduct a battery of functional health tests on Jimmy and our host thought it would be educational to have you eavesdrop in on the analysis of these numbers to give a taste of what kinds of things a functional medicine practitioner looks for and discusses with their clients. Listen in and follow along as Jimmy and Chris have a fascinating one-hour consultation about his latest health numbers.

959: Kai Hibbard Says The Biggest Loser Is Publicly Fat Shaming Contestants

Former Biggest Loser contestant and positive body image advocate Kai Hibbard is our guest today in Episode 959 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

One of the biggest cultural phenomenons over the past decade has been the advent of weight loss reality television shows like The Biggest Loser. The images of morbidly obese contestants running on treadmills and eating healthy are meant to inspire and give hope to a nation of people wanting to lose weight. But for one of the former contestants on the show, what goes on behind-the-scenes of the highly-profitable television show is utterly disgusting. Her name is Kai Hibbard and you might remember her as the runner-up winner in Season 3. But she was so mortified at the way the contestants were treated by the trainers and producers that she decided to speak out against the public fat shaming they not only allowed but encouraged.

Listen in as Jimmy and Kai have a stunning chat about how she never had an issue with her weight growing up, how she was always active although she was getting bigger, how she had never seen The Biggest Loser before she was chosen to be a contestant, how she never let her size get in the way she felt about herself, how being on television taught her to start loathing her body, why she doesn’t think the show is about being an inspiration, the crazy tactics people did to produce weight loss, how they kept putting her face on their products years after she was off the show, the lack of after show aftercare with former contestants, the challenge on her season where she was put on a horse track starting in the livestock stall that she believes was fat shaming by the producers, why shaming people doesn’t work to motivate people, how social media is leading the charge at combatting fat shaming at the grassroots level, her concerns with Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign, why what people eat and how they look are nobody else’s business, how she became very ill on the show and was told to suck it up and exercise anyway, how the product sponsorships pushed low-fat, high-carb Frankenfoods on the contestants, how she eats a real foods-based Paleoish diet, how she has to be careful of too structured eating lest she falls back into the habits she learned on the show, the health issues she dealt with as a result of being on The Biggest Loser, how she never had thyroid issues before being on the show but still deals with it, the weight relapses she has had over the years since being on the show, the self-care choices she made to take care of herself, and the other former contestants that have now come forward to join her speaking out against fat shaming.

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from one of the leading voices in the Paleo community named Diane Sanfilippo from “Balanced Bites” whose book Practical Paleo has been one of the most successful nutritional health books over the past few years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list so many times it’s hard to keep up with it. She shares a lecture on how low-carbers can use a real foods-based Paleo approach to optimize their nutrition. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from nutritional health expert and podcaster Wendy Myers from “Live To 110″ sharing about all the non-diet obesegens in our environment that could be contributing to the extra weight many people are carrying around. If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!
