The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family? When it comes to purchasing a cow from a local farmer, there are certain things to look out for to know if they are doing things the right way. That’s why we invited on a grass-fed cattle rancher from Braintree, Massachusetts named Joanie Walker from Walker Farm at Whorltleberry Hill. She knows the games that many farmers try to play with consumers pretending to provide quality meats for them to eat and is here today to provide her expert tips for buying grass-fed beef.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

992: Jared Stone Discovers The Power Of Real Food During The Year Of The Cow

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.
