Cardiologist and low-carb weight loss instructor Dr. Lowell Gerber is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Just a few short years ago, Dr. Lowell Gerber was still mired in conventional wisdom regarding the role nutrition plays in health, especially heart health. But something kept bothering him about a treatment that seemed too heavily focused on prescribing more and more drug therapies like statins and less interested in getting to the root causes of the issue to begin with. That's when he came across the work of a fellow physician from Lawrence, Kansas named Dr. Mary Vernon and her Innovative Metabolic Solutions program teaching medical professionals about the basics of using carbohydrate-restriction therapeutically with patients to help them with obesity, diabetes and many other chronic diseases. Dr. Gerber has been a sponge soaking in all of this information and has rekindled his passion and love for making patients healthier than ever before. Jimmy discusses all of the changes that have happened since Dr. Gerber found livin' la vida low-carb in past few years and what his big plans are to continue educating others about this healthy nutritional approach!

David Csonka says he is committed to "unlocking human potential, the natural way" as he puts it on his popular blog about barefoot running, fitness, lifestyle, nutrition and physiology called "Naturally Engineered." He is a big believer in the human body's extraordinary resilience and adaptability to virtually anything we challenge it to do. From freaky science project junk foods that dominate American food culture to the backwards obsession of our society to ignore the freedom of being barefoot vs. wearing shoes for athletics, you'll find yourself nodding in agreement with a lot of what you hear today during Jimmy's interview with David Csonka!

Holistic psychiatrist and certified GAPS practitioner Dr. Judy Tsafrir is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Dr. Tsafrir is one of the most enthusiastic fans of the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) protocol as outlined by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. Jimmy has been working on getting an interview with Dr. Campbell-McBride for a while (and he's still pursuing it!), but he found Dr. Tsafrir's dedication to and implementation of these principles in her own practice as a great reason to have her come on the show to talk about it.

The focus of this nutritional plan for treating a wide variety of mental disorders like autism, depression, mood disorders, psychotic disorders, learning disabilities, dyslexia, dyspraxia and more is on the consumption of real, whole foods that restore gut health to bring everything into proper balance again in the body. As you can imagine, Dr. Tsafrir is a great fan of traditional diets as espoused by The Weston A. Price Foundation, the evolutionary principles of the Paleo diet, and a healthy high-fat (especially saturated fat), moderate protein, low-carb diet for the best health you can possibly attain. Her ultimate goal is to heal all of her patients through the therapeutic use of natural dietary and detoxification steps. She's doing just that through her medical practice in Newton, Massachusetts!

Nephrologist and advanced glycation end products researcher Dr. Jaime Uribarri discusses "The AGE-less Way" program he developed today on The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore!

Dr. Uribarri has long studied the impact of advanced glycation end products (aka AGEs) and their negative impact on health, including diabetes, heart disease and kidney disease. It's one of the reasons why he developed what he describes as "a practical program that gives you control over your health" known as "The AGE-less Way." You'll quickly find this isn't just another weight loss gimmick, but rather a method for restoring your body to the health it was meant to have. Some of the concepts Dr. Uribarri shared during this interview will be quite controversial to those of us in the low-carb and Paleo communities, including why he believes animal fats INCREASE AGEs which then leads to proteins sticking together that leads to atheroschlerosis. You know Jimmy will have a thing or two to say about this during this fascinating conversation.

PLUS: If you have not yet tried the brand new Natural line of Quest Bars that Jimmy Moore played a part in developing sweetened with a unique blend of erythritol and stevia to keep this power-packed low-carb protein bar made with 100% all-natural ingredients, then you are missing out on a real bona fide treat. The new bars come in five exciting new flavors, including Cinnamon Roll, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coconut Cashew, Lemon Cream Pie (Jimmy's favorite!) and Strawberry Cheesecake. Of course, the Original line of Quest Bars is still 99.6% all-natural (with just a tinge of maltodextrin-free sucralose) with the flavors Peanut Butter & Jelly, Vanilla Almond Crunch, Peanut Butter Supreme, Mixed Berry Bliss, Chocolate Brownie and Apple Pie. There are so many to choose from, then hardest decision will be figuring out which ones to try first. They also have sampler packs of both the Natural and Original Quest Bars for you to taste them all for yourself! And don't forget, if you haven't tried Quest Bars and want TWO FREE BARS, you can get those by CLICKING HERE (and be sure to mention you heard about Quest Bars on "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" and they'll prioritize your order).

Health blogger, YouTuber and podcaster Sean Croxton is back on The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore today to share about his brand new explosive e-book entitled The Dark Side Of Fat Loss!

It's been a little while since Jimmy has spoken with Sean on his podcast, but the wait was so worth it. Over the past few years, Sean has made the successful transition from his excellent and informative YouTube video series to one of the hottest health podcasts on iTunes called "Underground Wellness Online Radio," featuring some of the top guests in health, fitness and nutrition dropping some mad "truth bombs" as Sean would say. The result of all these amazing interviews was the opportunity to pull out some key nuggets worth sharing with others in an e-book (and possibly soon a paper version of the book, too). Listen in as Jimmy and Sean talk about what it takes to make fat loss happen...direct from the "dark side."

PLUS: THANK YOU for supporting our sponsor Low-Carb LifeShotz which is an amazing all-natural nutrition drink supplement packed with the best ingredients to improve your health. We are grateful to have them be a part of spreading "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" to YOU!
