Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

America’s biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

877: Dr. Deborah Penner Shifts From Recommending Grains To Ketogenic Diets

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 10.27.58 PM

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

When your work is lauded and endorsed by two such highly respected giants in the health community like Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, and Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, then you must be doing something right. For today’s podcast interview guest Brenda Watson, that must mean she’s doing something VERY right. She has dedicated her career for over 20 years to helping people achieve vibrant, lasting health through improved digestive function. You may have even seen her on several PBS specials educating the public through enthusiastic lectures as she has established herself as one of the foremost authorities in America on optimum nutrition, digestion, and natural detoxification methods. Brenda has written a total of eight previous books related to gut health and will be releasing her latest on October 7, 2014 entitled The Skinny Gut Diet: Balance Your Digestive System for Permanent Weight Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy and Brenda discuss the details of what she shares in her new book on one of the hottest topics in the health community, some of the latest research related to the connection between the microbiome and obesity, why the gut bacteria of lean people and overweight people are so radically different, the intricate role that carbohydrates play in the body turning into sugar ad disrupting the balance gut bacteria, her reaction to the rise in interest in resistant starch and whether she thinks it’s an effective way to feed the gut flora, how people can safely shift the foods they eat to improve the bacterial composition, and so much more. Everyone is keenly interested in this subject of gut health nowadays and Brenda Watson has been at this for nearly two decades researching it and finding what works for her clients. Listen and soak in her wisdom!

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

DR. KIRK PARSLEY’S IMPASSIONED TEDX TALK ON SLEEP

America’s biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

877: Dr. Deborah Penner Shifts From Recommending Grains To Ketogenic Diets

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 10.27.58 PM

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When your work is lauded and endorsed by two such highly respected giants in the health community like Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, and Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, then you must be doing something right. For today’s podcast interview guest Brenda Watson, that must mean she’s doing something VERY right. She has dedicated her career for over 20 years to helping people achieve vibrant, lasting health through improved digestive function. You may have even seen her on several PBS specials educating the public through enthusiastic lectures as she has established herself as one of the foremost authorities in America on optimum nutrition, digestion, and natural detoxification methods. Brenda has written a total of eight previous books related to gut health and will be releasing her latest on October 7, 2014 entitled The Skinny Gut Diet: Balance Your Digestive System for Permanent Weight Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy and Brenda discuss the details of what she shares in her new book on one of the hottest topics in the health community, some of the latest research related to the connection between the microbiome and obesity, why the gut bacteria of lean people and overweight people are so radically different, the intricate role that carbohydrates play in the body turning into sugar ad disrupting the balance gut bacteria, her reaction to the rise in interest in resistant starch and whether she thinks it’s an effective way to feed the gut flora, how people can safely shift the foods they eat to improve the bacterial composition, and so much more. Everyone is keenly interested in this subject of gut health nowadays and Brenda Watson has been at this for nearly two decades researching it and finding what works for her clients. Listen and soak in her wisdom!

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.20.50 PM

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

DR. KIRK PARSLEY’S IMPASSIONED TEDX TALK ON SLEEP

America’s biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

877: Dr. Deborah Penner Shifts From Recommending Grains To Ketogenic Diets

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 10.27.58 PM

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When your work is lauded and endorsed by two such highly respected giants in the health community like Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, and Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, then you must be doing something right. For today’s podcast interview guest Brenda Watson, that must mean she’s doing something VERY right. She has dedicated her career for over 20 years to helping people achieve vibrant, lasting health through improved digestive function. You may have even seen her on several PBS specials educating the public through enthusiastic lectures as she has established herself as one of the foremost authorities in America on optimum nutrition, digestion, and natural detoxification methods. Brenda has written a total of eight previous books related to gut health and will be releasing her latest on October 7, 2014 entitled The Skinny Gut Diet: Balance Your Digestive System for Permanent Weight Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy and Brenda discuss the details of what she shares in her new book on one of the hottest topics in the health community, some of the latest research related to the connection between the microbiome and obesity, why the gut bacteria of lean people and overweight people are so radically different, the intricate role that carbohydrates play in the body turning into sugar ad disrupting the balance gut bacteria, her reaction to the rise in interest in resistant starch and whether she thinks it’s an effective way to feed the gut flora, how people can safely shift the foods they eat to improve the bacterial composition, and so much more. Everyone is keenly interested in this subject of gut health nowadays and Brenda Watson has been at this for nearly two decades researching it and finding what works for her clients. Listen and soak in her wisdom!

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.20.50 PM

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

America’s biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more!

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

877: Dr. Deborah Penner Shifts From Recommending Grains To Ketogenic Diets

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 10.27.58 PM

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

When your work is lauded and endorsed by two such highly respected giants in the health community like Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, and Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, then you must be doing something right. For today’s podcast interview guest Brenda Watson, that must mean she’s doing something VERY right. She has dedicated her career for over 20 years to helping people achieve vibrant, lasting health through improved digestive function. You may have even seen her on several PBS specials educating the public through enthusiastic lectures as she has established herself as one of the foremost authorities in America on optimum nutrition, digestion, and natural detoxification methods. Brenda has written a total of eight previous books related to gut health and will be releasing her latest on October 7, 2014 entitled The Skinny Gut Diet: Balance Your Digestive System for Permanent Weight Loss.

Listen in as Jimmy and Brenda discuss the details of what she shares in her new book on one of the hottest topics in the health community, some of the latest research related to the connection between the microbiome and obesity, why the gut bacteria of lean people and overweight people are so radically different, the intricate role that carbohydrates play in the body turning into sugar ad disrupting the balance gut bacteria, her reaction to the rise in interest in resistant starch and whether she thinks it’s an effective way to feed the gut flora, how people can safely shift the foods they eat to improve the bacterial composition, and so much more. Everyone is keenly interested in this subject of gut health nowadays and Brenda Watson has been at this for nearly two decades researching it and finding what works for her clients. Listen and soak in her wisdom!

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.20.50 PM

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

877: Dr. Deborah Penner Shifts From Recommending Grains To Ketogenic Diets

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 10.27.58 PM

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

When your work is lauded and endorsed by two such highly respected giants in the health community like Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, and Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, then you must be doing something right. For today’s podcast interview guest Brenda Watson, that must mean she’s doing something VERY right. She has dedicated her career for over 20 years to helping people achieve vibrant, lasting health through improved digestive function.

Listen in as Jimmy and Brenda discuss the details of what she shares in her new book on one of the hottest topics in the health community, some of the latest research related to the connection between the microbiome and obesity, why the gut bacteria of lean people and overweight people are so radically different, the intricate role that carbohydrates play in the body turning into sugar ad disrupting the balance gut bacteria, her reaction to the rise in interest in resistant starch and whether she thinks it’s an effective way to feed the gut flora, how people can safely shift the foods they eat to improve the bacterial composition, and so much more.

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.20.50 PM

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

883: Dr. Kirk Parsley Implores People To Put The Proper Emphasis Back On Sleep

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

877: Dr. Deborah Penner Shifts From Recommending Grains To Ketogenic Diets

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 10.27.58 PM

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

When your work is lauded and endorsed by two such highly respected giants in the health community like Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, and Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, then you must be doing something right. For today’s podcast interview guest Brenda Watson, that must mean she’s doing something VERY right. She has dedicated her career for over 20 years to helping people achieve vibrant, lasting health through improved digestive function.

Listen in as Jimmy and Brenda discuss the details of what she shares in her new book on one of the hottest topics in the health community, some of the latest research related to the connection between the microbiome and obesity, why the gut bacteria of lean people and overweight people are so radically different, the intricate role that carbohydrates play in the body turning into sugar ad disrupting the balance gut bacteria, her reaction to the rise in interest in resistant starch and whether she thinks it’s an effective way to feed the gut flora, how people can safely shift the foods they eat to improve the bacterial composition, and so much more.

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.20.50 PM

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

883: Dr. Kirk Parsley Implores People To Put The Proper Emphasis Back On Sleep

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

877: Dr. Deborah Penner Shifts From Recommending Grains To Ketogenic Diets

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 10.27.58 PM

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

When your work is lauded and endorsed by two such highly respected giants in the health community like Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, and Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, then you must be doing something right. For today’s podcast interview guest Brenda Watson, that must mean she’s doing something VERY right. She has dedicated her career for over 20 years to helping people achieve vibrant, lasting health through improved digestive function.

Listen in as Jimmy and Brenda discuss the details of what she shares in her new book on one of the hottest topics in the health community, some of the latest research related to the connection between the microbiome and obesity, why the gut bacteria of lean people and overweight people are so radically different, the intricate role that carbohydrates play in the body turning into sugar ad disrupting the balance gut bacteria, her reaction to the rise in interest in resistant starch and whether she thinks it’s an effective way to feed the gut flora, how people can safely shift the foods they eat to improve the bacterial composition, and so much more.

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.20.50 PM

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.

883: Dr. Kirk Parsley Implores People To Put The Proper Emphasis Back On Sleep

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research–and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn’t sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject. He does this regularly through his Huffington Post columns. Additionally, he’s written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: ‘Common’ Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about how he learned about low-carb as a high school football player, why elite athletes are starting to embrace low-carb and ketogenic diets, how the parents of young student athletes are the major roadblock in making low-carb, high-fat nutritional changes, the challenge he faces trying to buck the trend of the right diet for athletics, the role of saturated fat in the diet in keeping us sated and free from cravings, what it will take to bring about cultural change regarding nutrition, the obsession about calories and fat in our health culture, why carbohydrates really aren’t necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people “overworked and underfed,” and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You’ll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today’s fun and encouraging interview!

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today’s interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50’s, why Whole Foods is in a dispute with her over her new name, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.

868: Dr. Sarah Ballantyne Challenges The Wisdom Of Low-Carb Diets For Women

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.20.50 PM

Medical biophysicist, health blogger and podcaster, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sarah Ballantyne is our interview guest today in Episode 868 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After spending the past few weeks sharing interviews with the various experts featured in Jimmy Moore’s new book Keto Clarity, we’re back to our regular podcast schedule again and we welcome in someone who Jimmy first featured back in Episode 589 when she was just getting her name out there in the Paleo health blogosphere. Her name is Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD who has quite the story to tell about how she got into looking at the role of nutrition as a major player in optimizing health. She spent four years conducting research on innate immunity and inflammation, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom to raise her family. It was during this time at home that Sarah discovered she was dealing with an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition known as Lichen Planus as well as irritable bowel syndrome and allergies and that’s when she turned to the Paleo diet which helped her heal these conditions and set her on the path to becoming the author of two books on the subject: her New York Times bestseller from early 2014 called The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and her brand new companion book of recipes entitled The Paleo Approach Cookbook: A Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul.

WATCH DR. SARAH BALLANTYNE’S #AHS14 LECTURE

“Ancestral Health for Women” – Sarah Ballantyne & Stacy Toth
If you watch the above video from the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) that took place in Berkeley, California in August, then you will see the presentation that instigated Jimmy to invite Sarah on to the show for an interview. During that lecture she conducted with Stacy Toth from the “Paleo Parents” blog, there were claims made about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets that were less-than-flattering about this way of eating. Because we like to have conversations about nutrition and health here at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast, Jimmy invited her on to state her case so that the listeners could then decide whether or not her points were valid. Listen in as Jimmy and Sarah talk about the moment she found out her book hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time, why she released two books in the same year, why she thinks the Paleo message has taken off in recent years, how Paleo has evolved since it first became popularized, why her response to a ketogenic diet is “no, but,” her primary objections for women, especially of childbearing age, to be reducing their carbohydrate intake, her concerns about thyroid and gut health without the use of carbohydrates, the layout of the recipes in her new book, and a whole lot more! Because Jimmy and Sarah are friends, this is a friendly yet super-engaging debate of ideas you won’t want to miss.
