In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we’ve already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it’s possible we’ve only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he’s seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He’s written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how he fell into the “exercise and eat what you want” crowd in the 1970’s, why it was never fat but sugar that was always the problem, why it’s the inflammatory response that sugar is causing the most harm, how every nerve in the body is impacted negatively by sugar, sugar is so addictive that fat-based foods don’t taste good, the increased interest in the sugar message, the older medical professionals are stuck in their dogma, the technique he likes to use to help with sugar cravings, why people go to Starbucks to get their sugar not their caffeine, the various phases of nerve damage, why you should divide the total carbohydrates by 4 to get the teaspoons of sugar in any given food, the food companies that make addictive products are owned by the tobacco companies, his green/yellow/red test for determining how good a food is, why NFL players have a 40% greater prevalence of ALS (because of their poor nutrition and neck trauma), how the loss of smell (not memory) is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease, the preconception connection to autism, the role the insulin pathway plays in nerve damage, how glucose and Vitamin C are regulated by insulin, why artificial sugars are as harmful as sugar, how he gets his patients to embrace fat and give up the carbs, why a fat-based diet is so satiating and enjoyable, how a ketogenic diet is the key to living healthy and preventing cancer, and why you eat fruit after the winter to gain weight (and you will!). This is one fascinating conversation you don’t want to miss.

963: Dr. Malcolm Kendrick Sorts Out Medical Advice From Medical Nonsense

Scottish general practitioner, medical research skeptic, and author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is our guest today in Episode 963 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

The current state of nutritional health research is in shambles. With all the medical advice that’s being given to patients that seems to go back and forth saying one thing is for you one day and then turning right around and stating that same thing is suddenly bad for you, what is a patient to believe? For a Scottish general practitioner named Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, he’s been observing the games that are played with the research and stands up against the way Big Medicine is manipulating the studies towards things that make the most money and not necessarily the actions that will improve the health of patients. Dr. Kendrick has released a new book about this subject entitled Doctoring Data: How to sort out medical advice from medical nonsense.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Kendrick discuss his skepticism about how the state of scientific research is a “crock,” why the bad science has been so successful at penetrating the culture, how old ideas tend to die very hard, the simple narrative that makes people understand (even if it’s wrong), how it’s so difficult for the layperson to decipher the good from the bad science, why new researchers should challenge and look for scientific dogma to discredit it, the huge problem with how research is all treated equally, we’re designed to eat mostly animals but the popular notion is that plants should be first, it’s enormously time-consuming getting bogged down by bad data, how the Dietary Guidelines are the epitome of the ramifications of bad science, the continuing problem with laypeople still being scared of cholesterol levels and turning to statins, the problems with low cholesterol levels, statins will be found to be the greatest medical disaster in the history of medicine, when you criticize the system you’re accused of being a scaremonger, if you ate no cholesterol in your diet then your body would naturally make it, the problem with cancer screening and the harm it is causing, patients like to think they are being protected by getting screened, and how patients can determine the nonsense from the valid information for their health.

Gestational diabetes has become more and more commonplace in modern society with the rise in insulin resistance that manifests itself once a woman becomes pregnant. This is something that doesn’t surprise a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified LEAP Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor named Lily Nichols from The Pilates Nutritionist. Her nutrient-dense, whole foods low-carb approach has helped her patients dealing with this scary situation during pregnancy overcome the major issues at hand. Lily has written a new book about this subject entitled Real Food for Gestational Diabetes: An Effective Alternative to the Conventional Nutrition Approach and it’s the very first time a whole food-based, lower carb diet has been recommended for managing gestational diabetes.

Listen in as Jimmy and Lily talk about why a low-carb diet needs to come from real food, what got her interested in nutrition when she was in high school (cooking school or become a dietitian?), how Pilates has been integrated into her message, how she knew the education she was getting in dietetics was bogus, what got her interested in the subject of gestational diabetes, why most gestational diabetes patients don’t do well on the diet therapy given, why the “random number” of 175 grams of carbohydrates per day is recommended for women with gestational diabetes, how they purposely want to keep pregnant women out of ketosis, why pregnancy naturally induces a state of ketosis, how some women can spill urine ketones even eating 175 grams of carbohydrates, gestational diabetes is carbohydrate intolerance by definition, why some women are more susceptible to gestational diabetes than others, how 50-70% of patients with gestational diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes after birth within 5-10 years, how screening for A1c in the first trimester can catch gestational diabetes, how many gestational diabetes patients go back to eating poorly again after they have their baby, the underlying insulin resistance that doesn’t go away but can be managed with lifestyle, why most doctors aren’t screening for or worried about prediabetes, the horrific low-fat, high-carb traditional gestational diabetes diet, and we’re setting up kids to have excessive insulin production even before they’re born.

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

960: Gretchen Rubin Offers Strategies For Shifting Your Habits From Bad To Good

Screen Shot 2015-05-10 at 6.13.40 PM

Habit-building specialist, popular podcaster, and perennial New York Times bestselling author Gretchen Rubin is our guest today in Episode 960 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Breaking bad habits and behaviors can seem like an impossible thing to do because the pull to keep doing the same things you are used to doing is so incredibly strong. But for a former clerk for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor-turned-writer named Gretchen Rubin, bringing about change is all about creating new good habits that are much more desirable while making your old bad habits into something you just don’t have any desire to do anymore. If you’ve never heard of Gretchen before, she’s a pretty big deal in the publishing world selling over two million copies of her books worldwide in more than thirty languages. Her 2009 classic book The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun was a runaway New York Times hit and now she’s back with her much-anticipated follow-up release (which has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list) called Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives. She’s also got an extremely popular self-help iTunes podcast entitled Happier with Gretchen Rubin that’s worth checking out.

Listen in as Jimmy and Gretchen talk about why she left the legal system to become a writer, why she wanted to write clear and succinct ideas unlike the legalese she used to use, whether she’s been surprised by her overwhelming publishing success, how bad habits breed more bad habits, nutrition is one of the biggest challenges for eating more healthfully, people think habits change incrementally, her support for low-carb living ever since reading Gary Taubes’ 2010 book Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It, the huge health effects she saw eating low-carb, why it’s so difficult to make changes in your habits when you know something is good for you to do, the loopholes we use to excuse our bad habits, the convenience vs. inconvenience strategy for changing your habits, my previous interview with Dr. Brian Wansink in Episode 279, anything that seems impure turns people off, how the “buzziness” of cravings goes away if you resist it and abstain, some people who are really tempted do better to have none, if someone can moderate with no issues then they can have a little and be satisfied, the evil office donut bringer, the delicious, satisfying foods you get to eat on a low-carb diet makes it easier to change your habits, planning helps keep you in control, her friend’s “pie” story, why it’s good to fail small not big and to show compassion towards yourself when you fall, why having a finish line goal can actually be detrimental to permanent habit-changing, how people who get within 5-10 pounds of their weight loss goal tend to stop and drift away, the health changes she’s seen in her 70-something year old father since he switched to low-carb, her “Four Tendencies” quiz, her podcast with her and her sister cleaning up her sister’s closet, how cleaning up the clutter as “The Fly Lady Marla Cilley recommends helps improve your habits, and a whole lot more!
