Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our guest today in Episode 951 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Every five years, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) convenes a panel of experts on nutrition and health called the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee to determine the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. But for investigative journalist Nina Teicholz, author of the New York Times bestselling book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet, she's concerned that that general public is not being told about the incremental move towards a vegan diet. Listen in as Jimmy and Nina discuss the latest disturbing developments with the Dietary Guidelines.

Yoga teacher, chef, blogger, and author Jenni Hulet is our guest today in Episode 950 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

The gateway into finding Paleo for most people is as a direct result of dealing with some form of chronic health problem. For Jenni Hulet from "The Urban Poser" blog, her life was turned upside down in 2010 when she went from being an active mother, yoga teacher, and chef to being unable to get out of bed because of uncontrollable pain and muscle spasms. After months of unproductive doctor visits going through the conventional medicine route, she began to fear that all her creative pursuits were over and that she would have to resign herself to a life of pain management. Eventually, a doctor was able to identify an emerging autoimmune condition that, though devastating, could be fully recovered through changes in her nutrition and lifestyle. Jenni was diagnosed as severely gluten and casein intolerant and was put on a strict diet and supplement regimen to heal her ravaged body.

The process of facing down her worst fears and walking a lengthy path of recovery inspired a new expression for Jenni’s passion: to bring beauty, flavor, and freedom to those struggling with the fear and difficulty of living with health restrictions. It was out of this vision that her blog was born which perfectly marries her culinary skills and love of beautiful, celebratory food with her compassion for the suffering. Jenni was given the opportunity write a book in 2015 about her amazing story and the baking recipes she loves sharing with her readers called My Paleo Patisserie: An Artisan Approach to Grain Free Baking. Listen in as Jimmy and Jenni have a great conversation about her story to Paleo, why she feels Paleo treats are perfectly fine in the right circumstance, how her blog was originally about yoga and veganism, and so much more!

A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Board Certified Family Practitioner, and Board Certified Medical Bariatrician utilizing low-carb ketogenic diets with patients named Dr. Adam Nally is our guest today in Episode 948 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Finding a good doctor who understands the key role that nutrition plays in their patient's health can be extremely challenging nowadays. Since most medical professionals are lucky if they've had just a few hours to two weeks worth of education on the role diet plays in health during their medical school training, many don't know how to adequately help their patients dealing with chronic health problems like diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cholesterol and weight management. These topics are all a passionate focus of attention by a Surprise, Arizona-based family medicine practitioner named Dr. Adam Nally from Nally Family Practice. He blogs about how he routinely uses a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to help his patients maximize their health where all other forms of traditional medicine has failed. He blogs at DocMuscles.com and is one of the strongest medical proponents of ketogenic diets you'll ever hear.

Dr. Nally was invited by our host Jimmy Moore to be one of the featured speakers on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise which we shared on this podcast a couple of months back. But the video and audio footage with Dr. Nally became corrupted and unusable. To remedy that, Jimmy invited Dr. Nally to come on the podcast today for a fresh interview that we know you're gonna love. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Nally have a fascinating chat about the role ketogenic diets play in improving health.

Nutritional consultant, radio personality, public speaker, and author Pam Killeen is our guest today in Episode 947 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Modern society has grown increasingly more and more messed up in terms of human sexuality in recent decades and the trend line is quite disturbing to nutrition and natural health proponent Pam Killeen (listen to her back in Episode 435). In her three decades of working with clients, Pam has noticed such a huge increase in infertility impotence, erectile dysfunction, PMS, hot flashes, miscarriages, birth defects, and other signs of a disturbance in human survival that she's concerned that the future of mankind may be heading for extinction. It's a controversial subject matter to be sure and she's outlined her reasons for thinking this way in her engaging new book entitled Survival of the Unfittest: How Wisdom Will Save Humans from Falling into Extinction.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pam discuss why we're seeing problems with sexuality today, why libido-enhancing prescription pills aren't the answer to sexual woes, how the proliferation of online pornography has corrupted human relationships, the ramifications of decades of poor nutrition on the second or third generations of children that have followed, the serious concerns of being a vegetarian, the estrogen-mimicking chemicals that are wreaking havoc on sexual health, her own battle with chronic fatigue that she overcame and is now able to help others (especially our youth) beat it as well, and why the subject of sex is so taboo no book publisher would even touch her book. This is an incredibly important topic to discuss even if it is uncomfortable for some. Listen in and find out what we can do to survive this sexual decline.

Ontario, Canada-based nephrologist, weight loss, and diabetes health expert Dr. Jason Fung is our guest today in Episode 945 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He's from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He's a big believer that it's not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung go into detail about how diabetes is being treated and what we can do to bring about real change. Don't miss this compelling conversation!

Ketogenic ultra marathon runner Zach Bitter is our guest today in Episode 944 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

There's this common perception in the athletic world that in order to fuel your exercise performance, you must load up on high amounts of carbohydrates. But in recent years, a new trend has emerged where long-distance runners are turning to a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet to give them a longer, more steady source of energy during their races. We previously shared an interview with Western States 100-mile Endurance Run record holder Timothy Allen Olson in 2013 discussing how switching to an LCHF approach improved his race-day symptoms and endurance issues. Today we present another ultra marathon runner named Zach Bitter who has competed in 24 events and holds the 12 Hour World Record, 100 mile American Record, and 200k American Record. Additionally, he's a two time National Champion (50 mile road 2012, and 100k road 2014) as well as a member of USA's 2014 100k World Championship Team, which won gold in Doha, Qatar and placed 6th overall.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Zach discuss his old diet prior to discovering LCHF, his work with Dr. Jeff Volek fine-tuning his diet, the wide variability of carbohydrate intake according to the individual, why running faster races like a 5k doesn't necessarily mean needing higher carb consumption, and a whole lot more. If you are someone interested in the relationship between low-carb nutrition and endurance races, then you won't want to miss what Zach has to share in this interview.

Naturopath and autism specialist Dr. Shauna Young is our guest today in Episode 942 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

 

 

Interests: About 15 seconds after I started posting on social media about the book, someone came on and said “Nothing will cure autism. It’s here to stay”. This is the mindset that has to be reversed! To that end, I put together some talking points.

I cannot stress how important it is that people understand that this is not a “theory” that could happen. These case studies have ALREADY happened.

In order to do that, I think we should focus on the case studies. Maybe pick a few of your favorites and we can discuss them in more depth. Also see the chapter on “Setting the bar”. That has proved to be a very powerful image.

The Protocol has for years and WILL CONTINUE TO BE available for free download at noharmfoundation.org The book of course goes more into depth, but the Protocol is still there for free. However PLEASE ask that people leave a donation (even a dollar!) if they download the Protocol. If we had a dollar for every download we’ve had we would be in much better shape to help more people, as it has been downloaded more than 10,000 times in over 70 countries.

Stress that I am not in private practice right now, as I thought it was more important at this time to spread the word about this Protocol. They can send questions through the NoHarm Foundation (that I am medical director of) but the book should answer 99% of their questions. Once we have some funding through NoHarm we can answer more questions, but for now it is a small unpaid staff.

We have a video on YouTube that chronicles a child I worked with called “Dr. Shauna Young’s television appearance on EcoSense”. Go to YouTube and search for “Assertive Wellness” to get to our channel.

To hear more podcasts and other info about this Protocol, they can go to drshaunayoung.com
