Retired family medicine physician Dr. Ken Peters and his enthusiastic wife Peggy Holloway are our interview guests today in Episode 885 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

You know how sometimes you meet a man and wife who were meant to be together? Well, today's interview guests certainly fit within that category in a big way and they have quite the story to tell about how they discovered the powerful effects of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet which helps them run circles around their fellow long-distance biking challenges. They are Omaha, Nebraska-based married couple Dr. Ken Peters and Peggy Holloway. If you have read the success stories chapter in Jimmy latest book Keto Clarity, then you will already know about the fascinating story of these two seniors--Ken is 72 and Peggy is 61--who got on board with nutritional ketosis and now can't shut up about it with anyone and everyone they come across. After Peggy was a guest friend on Jimmy's Friday podcast "Low-Carb Conversations" in Episode 123, several listeners asked for her to be on "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" along with her husband to talk more about how they incorporate keto into their active lifestyle. You asked for it and now you've got it! ENJOY!

Periodontist and primal nutrition practitioner Dr. Alvin Danenberg is our interview guest today in Episode 884 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

In the context of ancestral health, a lot of focus tends to be on weight loss, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. But there are enthusiasts all across the broad spectrum of the medical profession who are taking the principles of low-carb, Paleo, primal and real food directly to their patients to help them improve the aspects of their health related to their field of expertise. That's exactly what a South Carolina-based nutritional periodontist named Dr. Alvin Danenberg is now doing for his patients after discovering the ancestral lifestyle in early 2013.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Danenberg discuss why he shifted from being a traditional periodontist to using more modern methods for treating gum disease, how he uses a laser-based LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) protocol, how he never heard of the work of Dr. Weston A. Price in any of his formal medical education, the role that ancestral nutrition plays in his periodontal practice, the advanced training he's received in ancestral nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in 2013, his completion in July 2014 to become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and in September 2014 becoming a Certified Primal Blueprint Expert (Mark Sisson's new certification program), and the clinical study he has designed using real food supplements to see what happens to gum disease.

Former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist Dr. Kirk Parsley is our interview guest today in Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America's biggest problem.

DR. KIRK PARSLEY'S IMPASSIONED TEDX TALK ON SLEEP

America's biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Parsley discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team, why he bases his lifestyle philosophy for wellness on evolutionary principles, how most chronic health problems of today are completely unnatural and unnecessary, the indelible connection between sleep and hormones, and a whole lot more! You'll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!

A legendary founding member of the modern Paleo movement Ray Audette is our interview guest today in Episode 882 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

When you think about the Paleo movement these days, so many great names come to mind--Robb Wolf, Mark Sisson, Sarah Fragoso, Nora Gedgaudas, and more. But two decades ago, there were very few people sharing about how our ancestors ate and lived in pursuing and maintaining optimal health. It was the very infancy of the modern Paleolithic diet advocacy with names like Dr. Boyd Eaton, Dr. Mike Eades, and Dr. Loren Cordain. But one man who helped merge the message of Paleo with low-carb, high-fat diets was a self-professed "computer nerd" named Ray Audette who researched and studied the Paleo lifestyle to help him with his own health issues which all got considerably better once he made the switch over to a concept he refers to in the title of his book about it called Neanderthin: Eat Like a Caveman to Achieve a Lean, Strong, Healthy Body. This is now considered a classic Paleo book and the Kindle version is now available with new information if you have never read it before. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ray discuss how he was talking about Paleo long ago, why he has decided to make a comeback of sorts after all the new voices have been on the scene, and so much more! Ray is one-of-a-kind and you'll find that out very quickly in today's interview.

Cardiologist Dr. Eric Thorn and registered nurse Marylou Van Hintum are our interview guests today in Episode 881 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

One of the most exciting developments that has been happening within the medical community over the past few years is a growing tide of healthcare providers who have become frustrated by the failure of the traditional model for medicine and are willing to look outside the box in treating their patients through nutrition and lifestyle modalities as the first option rather than so quickly turning to a prescription medication. Today's podcast interview guests certainly fit that mold. They are an Arlington, Virginia-based cardiologist and obesity medicine physician named Dr. Eric Thorn and a real food-based registered nurse named Marylou VanHintum. Together they joined forces to open the Center for Cardio-Metabolic Health and Weight Loss in September 2012 providing medically-supervised, nutritional rehabilitation to treat metabolic syndrome, promote weight loss, reduce risk for heart disease, and improve overall quality of life. The nutritional plan they incorporated with their patients is a low-carb, high-fat diet with real, whole foods that help heal the damage that has accumulated over years, even decades, and the patients receive personalized follow-up to help them with their specific individualized needs to lose weight and get healthy.

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Dr. Thorn, and Marylou share about how they came to low-carb nutrition from within the traditional medical establishment, how they came to realize how low-carb nutrition could be used as a powerful tool for promoting optimal health, why weight loss isn't really the primary focus of their work with patients, how a cardiologist is able to talk about eating high-fat foods like bacon without getting ostracized by his colleagues, the impact of stress on your health during transitional periods in our lives (as Dr. Thorn and Marylou are currently going through parting ways but continuing their work with patients), and a whole lot more! Jimmy met these two at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) meeting a couple of years ago and this was such an intriguing discussion about the future of health and the intricate role nutrition will have to play in patient health in the coming years.

Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and medical bariatrician Dr. Spencer Nadolsky is our interview guest today in Episode 880 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Self-experimentation when it comes to the subject of nutrition and health is an absolute must. The quantified self movement is growing by leaps and bounds because patients are so fed up with the failure of the current model for healthy living being used by conventional medicine that they've grabbed back control of their own health and doing their own n=1 experiments to test how their body responds to any given stimuli. But today's podcast interview guest isn't just some patient--he was traditionally trained in medical school and has been treating patients himself as their medical doctor. His name is Dr. Spencer Nadolsky (listen to his previous interview on the show in Episode 552), an osteopath and obesity medicine specialist in Virginia, who decided to test the controversial dietary waters by shifting his meals over from low-carb to high-carb to see what would happen.

Have your Chocolate and Eat it Too!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Nadolsky discuss his recent bodybuilding show, why counting macronutrients and calories were a critical element in helping him reach his body composition goals while maintaining excellent metabolic health, his foray into wanting to experiment with a high-carb diet to see what would happen, the reaction he received from the low-carb community to his n=1, and a whole lot more. It's an interesting chat about keeping an open mind and never getting too dogmatic about what you believe regarding nutritional health. ENJOY!

Nutrition and personal fitness training expert Mike Sheridan is our interview guest today in Episode 879 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

In this day and age of instant information at your fingertips with the click of a mouse searching the Internet on virtually any topic you want to learn more about, it can be a bit daunting trying to sift through it all to know what to believe about any given subject. The challenge in the world of diet, fitness, and health is the fact that there are so many cultural norms that people simply believe at face value that have never been proven by any research--and yet people buy into them hook, line, and sinker. This doesn't sit well with a nutrition and fitness expert named Mike Sheridan who believes the public deserves to hear the truth about what we REALLY know about nutrition rather than the propaganda that has been put out there in the mainstream of our culture regarding this subject.

To that end, he's written a couple of books that take on the common wisdom on diet and fitness and turn them on their head with Eat Meat And Stop Jogging: 'Common' Advice On How To Get Fit Is Keeping You Fat And Making You Sick and Live It, NOT Diet!: Forget Cardio. Forget Calories. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Mike have an in-depth conversation about the role of fat in the diet, why carbohydrates really aren't necessary for human health, the nonsensical nature of the calories in/calories out message, how people are causing more harm than good engaging in cardio exercise, his passion for helping people realize how easy it is to get and stay fit, why he believes conventional wisdom has people "overworked and underfed," and his driving philosophy to enjoy what he is doing so that it never feels like work. You'll get to hear all of this and a whole lot more in today's fun and encouraging interview!

Biological anthropologist, professor of psychology, and brain health researcher Dr. Aaron Blaisdell is our interview guest today in Episode 878 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

[powerpress]

When Gary Taubes released his seminal nutritional health book Good Calories Bad Calories in 2007, no doubt he couldn't have imagined at the time just how many people from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds would be influenced by his work. One such person who was influenced by Taubes is an associate professor of psychology at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and a participating member of the UCLA Brain Research Institute named Dr. Aaron Blaisdell. You may recognize his name as one of the two co-founders (with Brent Pottenger) of the annual Ancestral Health Symposium Paleo conference and he's been conducting some pretty fascinating research with lab rats in recent years, including this fascinating April 2014 study published in Physiology & Behavior looking at the role a low-fat, junk food diet plays on obesity and cognitive function. In fact, Dr. Blaisdell gave a lecture about his research at the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium (#AHS14) entitled Functional Frivolity: Human Brain Evolution and Play (watch the lecture below).

DR. AARON BLAISDELL'S #AHS14 LECTURE

Functional Frivolity: Human Brain Evolution and Play

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Blaisdell share about how Taubes was a major influence on his interest in nutrition and health, his research using lab mice to examine the mental and brain health impact that diet plays, why he thinks "ancestral" is a more complete term to use to describe the healthy lifestyle currently promoted as "Paleo," where he see the ancestral health message going in the coming years, full details on the results of his latest rat experiments, the development of a new website dedicated to crowd sourcing n=1 experiments all in one place, and so much more! It's a fabulous conversation between two of the leading voices in the ancestral health community.

Chiropractor and real foods-based nutrition practitioner Dr. Deborah Penner is our interview guest today in Episode 877 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

There are so many amazing voices out there trumpeting the cause of real food in helping people improve their health in ways they never thought would be possible without the medications and procedures that modern medicine has said is the inevitable path. And today's interview guest knows this a bit more than most having been raised on a large Mennonite farm with honeybees, oranges, cattle, pigs, sheep and fresh fruits and vegetables from their homemade garden. She is a Chico, CA-based chiropractor and nutritional wellness practitioner named Dr. Deborah Penner from Whole Food Medicine and Chico Creek Wellness And Chiropractic. Jimmy met her in person a couple of months back at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, California where she shared her passion for teaching, preaching, and sharing as much information about a whole foods, low-carb, ketogenic diet with fantastic results. Recently, she has been conducting keto-adaptation food groups with fantastic results, including producing weight loss when people got stuck, resolution of migraine headaches, and diabetics who were taking insulin no longer having to do that anymore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Penner talk about how she was able to find robust health in her mid-50's, how she evolved from recommending whole grains to no grains to high-protein and now ketosis, why all of her patients are given a blood glucose meter and ketone testing sticks to check their progress at home, how quickly changes begin to happen in her patients, some important aspects to getting keto-adapted that nobody talks about, how she helps people with a compromised biliary tract or no gallbladder get into ketosis, why shifting macronutrients alone may or may not be enough, her focus on nutrient-dense, high-fat foods to produce therapeutic ketones, her detox program that helps make adapting to the ketogenic diet easier, and so much more! Dr. Penner is one of the champions of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic living working on the front lines of changing lives one patient at a time.
