Dr. Donald Miller, cardiac surgeon and low-carb advocate, is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Cab Show with Jimmy Moore.

Today’s guest shares his thoughts on the medical community’s poor acceptance of the validity of low-carb science and how he has the opportunity to teach young doctors and interns what he has come to realize about this healthy way of eating. Inspired by Sally Fallon of the Weston A. Price Foundation, Dr. Miller shares his experience of going from a solid Ornish Diet supporter to a dyed-in-the-wool advocate for the kind of medicine called for by people like Dr. Atkins, Gary Taubes and the modern carbohydrate-restriction movement.

Melissa McEwen, Paleo blogger from Hunt.Gather.Love is our guest in today’s Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.

Today Jimmy chats with an extraordinary young lady from New York City named Melissa McEwen. Why is she so remarkable? Because she is a hunter/gathering Paleo dieter who thrives in an urban location. Say what?!

That’s right, she works with a meat CSA and goes out to the more remote suburbs where there are still family-run farms to buy her produce and livestock. Listen in for her offbeat and admirable existence as she forges (and forages) her own path to low-carb, Paleo fitness!

Also, remember to support our amazing sponsor, QuestBars, who want to give YOU two free samples! Listen in to find out how!

Sally Pacholok, RN, co-author of Could It Be B12? is today’s guest on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore. Welcome back!


Sally Pacholok is a registered nurse who suffered from Vitamin B12 deficiency. Once she got to the bottom of her own diagnosis, she decided to help others, because B12 deficiency is often not diagnosed or misdiagnosed. Some disorders commonly blamed where low B12 is actually to blame include multiple sclerosis, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, depression, diabetic neuropathy, and many others. Listen in for a wealth of info on this shamefully under-diagnosed condition, including why you should NEVER start taking Vitamin B12 without first getting a serum B12 blood test.
