Nutritional health research scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 987 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

AUDIO

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore has been taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he decided to air some of his favorite older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today we have the last one before he returns to his normal podcasting schedule next week and it's a great one featuring a Senior Research Scientist in the Computer Science and Artficial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute For Technology (MIT) named Stephanie Seneff (who was one of Jimmy's featured experts in his 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity). Dr. Seneff has long been sounding the alarm on the detrimental role of carbohydrates in our diet and how it has led to rampant obesity and chronic disease. If you've never heard her before, then you are in for a real treat. Since the original airing of this interview, Dr. Seneff has gone on to sound the alarm on the role GMOs and glyphosphate in products like RoundUp are having on the prevalence of the development autism in children (watch the video below).

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Seneff discuss how she became interested in nutrition as an MIT researcher, how her daughter-in-law getting put on statins got her "obsessed" with looking into this topic, the published research she has had in prominent medical journals, how sugar radically damages small LDL particle, how to get the low-carb, high-fat message out to the masses, the tactics used by pharmaceutical companies to drum of fear about cholesterol, the intricate role carbohydrates play in Alzheimer's disease (aka Type 3 diabetes), four rising health issues connected to having low LDL cholesterol, why she believes nobody should ever take a statin drug, why eating fructose is sure to lead to stored body fat, the health consequences of having a chronic deficiency in dietary fat, vitamin D, calcium and sulfur, what has happened to health as a result of demonizing cholesterol and sunbathing, why you want to be taking vitamin D sulfate and not vitamin D2 prescribed by your doctor, and so much more! We've always been impressed by the information shared by Dr. Seneff and this was our first experience that you will quickly see why this became an LLVLC Show Classic episode. ENJOY!

Bestselling author, blogger and podcaster Jimmy Moore and ketogenic nutrition expert and author Maria Emmerich are our guests today in Episode 986 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

For many years, there have been cookbooks available to help low-carb dieters spruce up their meal selection and add in a little variety to the mix. But with the increased attention given to ketogenic diets that are low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat over the past few years, the demand for recipes that fit this has been very high while the selection of cookbooks that meet this demand has been next to nil. Until now. Our host Jimmy Moore, author of the 2014 bestselling book on ketogenic diets entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, has joined forces with one of his fellow keto troubadours in wellness expert Maria Emmerich from MariaNutrition.com and author of the 2013 bestseller Keto-Adapted: Your Guide to Accelerated Weight Loss and Healthy Healing to create what is sure to be the go-to cookbook for people following the ketogenic diet! Listen in as Jimmy and Maria discuss the details about what is surely one of the most highly-anticipated new books of 2015 that releases TODAY!

Functional medicine practitioner Dr. Michael Ruscio is our guest today in Episode 985 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

There's been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It's been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called "safe starches" and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don't sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio have quite the discussion about this controversial but timely topic.

Veterinarian with an interest in low-carb nutrition Dr. Travis Einertson is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 984 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he's airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has an exciting interview with a Rochester, Minnesota-based veterinarian named Dr. Travis Einertson from the Heritage Pet Hospital who is a huge fan of the low-carb lifestyle. As a specialist working with his obese and diabetic feline patients, Dr. Einertson has devised a nutritional plan he describes as the “Catkins” diet that has worked to stunning success in his feline patients! If you’re a pet lover--especially dogs and cat--then you need to listen to this engaging conversation.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Einertson discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based "Catkins" diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky's Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat's blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it's done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the "Catkins" diet is being used by his colleagues. If you're a pet lover, then you're gonna enjoy this LLVLC Show Classic episode today!

Raw vegan activist and cyclist Harley "Durianrider" Johnstone is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 981 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he's airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has audio from who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley "Durianrider" Johnstone from "30 Bananas A Day" and his famous YouTube channel. What's interesting is Jimmy attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you've ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has a flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That's what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).


Jimmy met Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia last year

Listen in as Jimmy and Harley discuss the health problems he dealt with growing up, what a high-carb raw vegan diet looks like, why 70-minute daily exercise isn't enough, why he thinks some people gain weight when they eat carbs, his assertion that there are no low-carb Paleo success stories and his challenge to prove it works, the purpose of his arrogant style in presenting his message, why he believes everyone should be vegan and how to succeed at it, how he prevents hunger on his vegan diet, why he thinks people should be eating at least 30 bananas a day, why he's no fan of calorie-counting, how ketones play a role in fueling his body on his cycling race days, how he views exercise as the stimulant for eating more food, where we agree the most on the subject of nutrition, why he prefers fruit and fruit juices over any other food, why he doesn't believe there are ketogenic athletes, why he thinks it's not a big deal that vegans need to supplement with Vitamin B12, why raw veganism hasn't caught on as much as he would like and whether it can be sustainable, and whether consuming animal foods is ever appropriate for people to eat. If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews Jimmy has ever conducted in the history of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show." ENJOY!

Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist Dr. Will Cole is our guest today in Episode 979 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

It seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That's why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That's the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburg area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the wayFunctional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you're fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won't want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.

Board-certified certified adult psychiatrist Dr. Emily Deans is our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 978 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

In the months of June and July, our host Jimmy Moore is taking some time away from his regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, he's airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today he has one of his friends from the Paleo and ancestral health community named Dr. Emily Deans from the "Evolutionary Psychiatry" blog. She is a Boston, Massachusetts-based psychiatrist who uses Paleolithic nutritional principles to help her patients find the help they need with their mental and chronic physical ailments and regularly speaks at events like the Ancestral Health Symposium (in fact, she's one of the featured speakers at the inaugural international AHS event happening in 2015 in New Zealand this Fall). Dr. Deans is considered one of the leading voices of reason regarding health online, especially with her active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Deans talk about how vanity led her to finding a nutrition approach to lose weight, the influence of Gary Taubes and John Durant on turning her to Paleo, why she says there are pieces of the Atkins diet that don’t work, the reservations she has about a strict vegan diet on mental health, how she was able to lose weight and improve health with low-carb Paleo, why she read Good Calories Bad Calories after watching Stephen Colbert, how the low-fat, plant-based diet has never really been proven by science, why she feels the tide has been turning over the past year against low-fat diets, why psychiatrists tend to be more open to Paleo/low-carb than other medical fields, how mental illness has increased since our diet changed to low-fat, the four elements of a healthy diet for brain health, how the mitochondria function better on ketones than “high-octane” glucose, what the biggest culprit is in poor mental health, why consuming “fat-rich foods” are usually the most nutritious, a typical day in the life of her “moderate-carb Paleo” diet, why white rice and white potatoes are included in her diet now, why she doesn’t count calories as part of her nutritional plan, the unintended consequences of lowering cholesterol numbers too much, why she believes psychiatry is the "woo woo bastard stepchild of medicine," the many great like-minded friends she’s met by being connected online, her family members who still deny the dietary connection to their diabetes, and how she got the writing gig at Psychology Today. It's another great LLVLC Show Classic episode you won't want to miss.
