Top-ranked health podcaster, corporate wellness coach, and author Shawn Stevenson is our guest today in Episode 915 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Most people who get into the health community tend to find their way to improved nutrition and lifestyle choices as a direct result of some physical ailment they or someone they love have personally experienced. And that certainly describes bestselling author and podcaster Shawn Stevenson who was told by conventional medicine in his early twenties that there was nothing they could do about what was described as an “incurable” spinal condition known as degenerative disc disease. This didn't sit well with Shawn and that began him on his own search for self-discovery about what was happening to his body and health which helped him heal his body and ignite within him a love and desire to help others.

Listen in as Jimmy and Shawn share about the behind-the-scenes of health podcasting, why a low-carb diet is perhaps the optimal nutritional approach for most people, the road to health that he traveled, the link between sleep and health, why we crave carbs when we've been sleep deprived, how weight gain is directly attributed to poor sleep quality, and so much more.

Functional medicine practitioner, autoimmune disease expert, and author Dr. Amy Myers is our guest today in Episode 914 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Autoimmune disease in America is a lot more prevalent than mainstream medicine knows how to effectively deal with. Here are some sobering statistics on the estimated 50 million people currently dealing with autoimmunity in the United States--Graves' disease: 10 million; 
Psoriasis: 7.5 million; 
Fibromyalgia: 5 million
; Lupus: 3.5 million; 
Celiac disease: 3 million
; Hashimoto's thyroiditis: 3 million
; Rheumatoid arthritis: 1.3 million
; Chronic fatigue syndrome: 1 million; 
Crohn's disease: 700,000
; Ulcerative colitis: 700,000
; Multiple Sclerosis: 250,000 to 350,000; 
Scleroderma: 300,000
; and Diabetes type 1: 25,000 to 50,000. If you ask the Medical Director of the Austin, Texas-based functional medicine center Ultrahealth named Dr. Amy Myers, MD (listen to Jimmy's interview with her in Episode 692), she'll say these numbers are grossly underreported. And she'd know having seen and treated thousands of patients in her medical career and now she's ready to bring her Myers Way program to the masses. Her brand new book The Autoimmune Solution: Prevent and Reverse the Full Spectrum of Inflammatory Symptoms and Diseases explains in great detail how to deal properly with chronic autoimmune conditions with the power of the Paleo nutritional approach. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Myers look more closely at this highly misunderstood, but completely treatable set of diseases through changes in diet, environment, and stress levels.

UK-based personal trainer, health activist, podcaster, and author Sam Feltham is our guest today in Episode 913 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

There are so many people attempting to communicate to frustrated dieters what it takes to lose weight and get fit.

That's why you should try to rely on people you trust like personal trainer and health activist Sam Feltham from "Smash The Fat" in the UK. You've heard him on his top-ranked "Smash The Fat" iTunes health podcast and he's been a guest on this podcast a couple of times before, including in Episode 739 where he shared about his calories experiments that became the basis for his brand new book entitled Slimology: The Relatively Simple Science Of Slimming. Listen in as Jimmy and Sam discuss the contents of his book on slimming (not sliming!).

Australian celebrity TV chef, low-carb, high-fat Paleo diet advocate, and bestselling cookbook author Pete Evans is our guest today in Episode 912 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that's exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today's interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they've ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well. Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about the challenge and opportunity that comes with bringing a real foods-based LCHF-infused Paleo diet to the masses.

Nutritionist, lecturer, and author Dr. Kaayla Daniel is our guest today in Episode 911 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

As the real food movement continues to gather steam into the mainstream of our culture, more and more people are becoming curious about and interested in adding bone broth to their diet perhaps for the first time in their entire lives. But because this is such a new thing for so many people who have never attempted to use it before, there may be questions about how to prepare and incorporate it into your meals. That's one reason why Dr. Kaayla "The Naught Nutritionist" Daniel, Vice-President of The Weston A. Price Foundation, has joined forces with WAPF President Sally Fallon Morrell to pen a brand new book all about this subject entitled Nourishing Broth: An Old-Fashioned Remedy for the Modern World.

DR. KAAYLA DANIEL'S AHS14 LECTURE AT BERKELEY

Bone Broth and Health: A Look at the Science

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Daniel share about why bone broth is so mysterious to many people, some of the benefits of consuming broth on a regular basis, the macronutrient makeup of bone broth, simple steps to make the most nourishing broth possible, and more! If you have been wanting to try to make broth at home and weren't quite sure how to go about doing that, then listen to Dr. Daniel share her insights in today's podcast. ENJOY!

Fitness author, athlete, and coach Nate Miyaki is our guest today in Episode 910 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

 

 

Whenever someone challenges the idea that there are concerns about the consumption of carbohydrates on health, Jimmy likes to talk to them to find out why. So when Jimmy saw a book on Amazon by a personal training and nutrition consultant named Nate Miyaki recently, he knew he had to have him on the show for an interview. Nate has an educational background in kinesiology, is a Certified Specialist in Sports Nutrition (ISSA), a Certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition (ISSA), and a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE). He has been in practice helping clients for the past 15 years working with professional athletes, models and busy working professionals wanting to look better and get healthy.

The name of his brand new book that made it appear he was not an advocate of low-carb diets is called The Truth about Carbs: How to Eat Just the Right Amount of Carbs to Slash Fat, Look Great Naked, & Live Lean Year-Round. Listen in as Jimmy and Nate share about diet specificity and matching the program that is right for a person's individual needs, the difference between health goals and performance/physique goals, why he is no fan of dietary dogma, his philosophy of discovering the right diet structure to make your plan as practical, functional, and sustainable as possible, and a whole lot more! Nate may have a slice of bread on the front cover of his book, but you'll quickly learn he's no fan of THAT kind of carbohydrate.

Clinical professor of internal medicine, researcher, progressive MS overcomer, and author Dr. Terry Wahls is our guest today in Episode 909 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

We are constantly talking about the need for more research of the low-carb, Paleo, and ketogenic diets as a means for demonstrating the viability of these real food-based nutritional approaches in treating chronic disease. And that's precisely what a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa and a staff physician at the Iowa City Veterans Affairs Hospital named Dr. Terry Wahls (listen to Jimmy's previous interviews with her in Episode 533Episode 637Episode 797, and Episode 860) is doing. After overcoming a chronic progressive neurological disorder called secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years, she has been on a mission to sharing with the entire world how nutrition and lifestyle changes can make a real difference in MS patients.

In 2014, she found great success with the hardback version of her book about her Paleo protocol and is back in 2015 with the paperback version of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles. Listen in to hear Dr. Wahls and Jimmy talk about the latest research she is conducting using various nutritional therapies, what's happening in the world of research publishing, the direct impact her work is having on the National MS Society, the unique opportunity she had to speak about her work to mainstream MS professionals, and so much more! If you're looking to see someone making a real difference in both the research and public world, then don't miss hearing from Dr. Terry Wahls.
