What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

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.

961: Christopher Kelly Analyzes Latest Functional Health Tests For Jimmy Moore

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.

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

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.

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

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.

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.

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.

970: Dr. Carlos Jordan Bringing Low-Carb To The Spanish-Speaking Population

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 6.52.26 PM

A board certified internal medicine physician with a focus on low-carb diets in treating obesity and diabetes named Dr. Carlos Jordan is our guest today in Episode 970 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The low-carb, high-fat message has been gaining lots of momentum around the world in recent years in places like Sweden, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. But one of the challenges of spreading the message of healthy nutrition to more of the world is having resources in the major languages. For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

For a medical doctor from Bolivia, the lack of information for the Spanish-speaking population was greatly concerning. That’s what motivated internal medicine and obesity medicine physician Dr. Carlos Jordan to take it upon himself to create an new iTunes app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso) in Spanish to give good information to people who speak Spanish.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Jordan discuss how his grandmother got him interested in medicine, his high-carb nutritional background as a tennis player, why he turned to obesity medicine being a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians where he met Dr. Eric Westman, why real food and low-carb are equally important, what his patients thought about his transition to low-carb nutrition, how he increases compliance to going low-carb, how the fixation on low-fat that has made treating diabetes more difficult, why insulin is not the answer to Type 2 diabetes, what his fellow medical professionals think about what he’s doing with his patients, how his patients mostly have some form of metabolic disease, his new 99-cent Spanish language health app called an Interactive Guide To Lose Weight (Guia interactiva para bajar de peso), why he decided to make an app instead of a book or other resource, and what the response has been like from patients so far.

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.

976: Mark Schatzker Says Improving Health Starts With Making Real Food Tasty

Freelance magazine writer, columnist, and author Mark Schatzker is our guest today in Episode 976 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

What if we’ve been addressing the obesity and chronic health epidemics all wrong by putting all the focus on calories? This is a question that award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker (listen to Jimmy’s 2010 interview with him in Episode 402) has been investigating for several years and it comes down to this–flavor! Our bodies are hard-wired to be attracted to great-tasting foods because historically these have been the ones with the most nutrition in them. Mark has written a new book about this entitled The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor that details his investigation into how the flavor has been removed from food for decades through genetic manipulation and questionable farming practices.

Listen in as Jimmy and Mark discuss how he’s been “following the flavor trail” since writing his Steak book, how it shocked him that a grass-fed steak tasted the best, a cow gets their nutrients through flavor, how talking about fat and sugar are the wrong direction in discussion nutrition, the consumer is deeply confused by the nutritional claims put on food packaging, making food more abundant and more cheap has stripped real food of its flavor, we’re wired for deliciousness through great food, the reason he called his book The Dorito Effect, we have mastered the art of synthetic flavors, flavor is the language of nutrition, people live in a fake food environment and don’t know what real food is supposed to taste like, how easy it is to down 1200 calories at fast food and still be hungry, real food is satisfying where you eat it and you’re done, the goat study that explains the importance of the connection between flavor and micronutrients, of the hundreds of flavor profiles most people only turn to 20 of them, one of the best indicators of junk food is anything with synthetic flavorings, why “natural flavors” is an utterly meaningless term, consumers still exert a lot of power and can reject the engineered foods, the problem with the tradeoff between quantity and quality, it is possible to get real food that tastes good by sacrificing yield for quality, there’s nothing better than growing your own garden full of food, and how making real food tasting good again will make it more desirable.
