Nutrition, fitness and intermittent fasting expert Brad Pilon is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Just say the word "fasting" and most people's knees begin to buckle. While the majority of Americans couldn't imagine what it would be like to go without food for more than a few hours, the fact is it can be a lot easier than you think once you start fueling your body correctly. Brad Pilon knows the ins and outs of how this works and why it is so effective at providing not just weight loss, but real fat loss as well. Plus, intermittent fasting is shown to help boost your metabolism, maintain your testosterone levels and put on lean muscle mass.

He outlines the details of this plan for success in improving your health using intermittent fasting in his book Eat Stop Eat: The Ultimate Guide To Intermittent Fasting For Effortless Weight Loss And Lifelong Health. Several years ago Jimmy did a podcast about trying intermittent fasting, but he's since learned to enjoy using this strategy from time to time as a means for optimizing his healthy low-carb lifestyle. Listen in as Jimmy and Brad discuss the finer points of this strategy that intimidates the uninitiated and is the secret weapon of those who seek to maximize their health potential.

Freelance editor and independent science documentary filmmaker Kennon Hulett is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

AUDIO

Jimmy often talks about the need for people to find what they're good at and to use those gifts and talents to promote the right messages about health. And in this day and age when people are more apt to watch a fun documentary film (see how popular my buddy Tom Naughton's film FAT HEAD was for evidence of this) than to read some science-y book on a controversial nutritional subject, it's good to know we have some truly remarkable people working hard behind-the-scenes to produce high-quality video projects that fit the bill.

Enter Kennon Hulett.

This Southern girl excelled in film school graduating with honors in both film making and dramatic writing. She's already directed her first feature film and has been involved in various projects here and there. In late 2011, Kennon decided to start a brand new film company called Falling Whale Films dedicated to making "independent, highly accessible science documentaries" available to the public. Her first big project is called In Defense Of Fat: Rethinking The Bad Science Eating At America's Health. As you can imagine, this documentary will focus on the alternative science that says dietary fat is NOT a culprit in obesity and heart disease.

And Kennon has already got some BIG NAMES in the Paleo/low-carb community lined up, ready-to-go for interviews to be used in her film, including Dr. Robert LustigRobb WolfMark SissonDenise MingerSarah Fragoso and Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt. Listen in as Jimmy and Kennon talk about her ambitious film idea that is so sorely needed now more than ever and how YOU can get involved in helping her make it possible by supporting her Kickstarter page to raise the funds necessary to make this film dream into a reality!

Associate professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center and diet researcher Dr. Christopher Gardner is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Landmark nutritional research was conducted by Dr. Christopher Gardner and published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association in March 2007 called A TO Z: A Comparative Weight Loss Study. In that study, this devout vegetarian advocate (for moral reasons) found that the Atkins low-carb diet produced more weight loss and better health improvements than the low-fat Ornish, moderate-carb Zone or standard American LEARN diet. This was obviously big news in the low-carb community at the time and Dr. Gardner went on the lecture circuit to discuss his study results, including a May 2008 lecture at the Stanford School of Medicine posted on YouTube called The Battle of the Diets: Is Anyone Winning (At Losing?).

It's been a few years since that historical JAMA study sent shock waves through the medical community. What's been going on with Dr. Gardner's continued research into this subject and how has his point of view changed regarding diet and health over the past five years? Listen in today as Jimmy has a rather candid conversation with this top nutritional researcher about the continuing ramifications resulting from his positive low-carb diet study.

Nephrologist and low-carb obesity medicine practitioner Dr. Keith Runyan is our guest today onThe Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

When you train to become a medical doctor, it’s generally understood that you will come out of school with an adept knowledge about anatomy, histology, embryology, physiology, biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics which all directly impact people’s health. But a glaring omission in this educational piece is the subject of nutrition and the indelible connection it plays on chronic diseases and obesity. This is something that Dr. Keith Runyan had to discover for himself beginning in 1996 when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

When he realized he had diabetes, this St. Petersburg, FL-based nephrologist attempted to follow the American Diabetes Association recommended low-fat diet with a dietary intake of 50-60% carbohydrates. He thought he needed to eat this way along with balancing out his diet with insulin use, but his blood sugar control was still too erratic to be considered a success after two years of eating this way. That’s when Dr. Runyan decided to dibble-dabble with the low-carb strategies suggested by former podcast guest Dr. Richard Bernsteinand in 2011 took at serious look at both the Paleo diet and the low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet to bring even better management of his diabetes as well as fueling his newfound passion for participating in triathlons. The results have been phenomenal.

Hypoglycemia has virtually vanished. Triglycerides have dropped. HDL cholesterol has increased. C-reactive protein (marker of inflammation) has plummeted. And Dr. Runyan credits his use of a well-formulated low-carbohydrate nutritional approach for making this happen. He has become so enthusiastic about this way of eating that he is pursuing board certification in obesity medicine later this year. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Runyan discuss this extraordinary story of how one medical professional took back control of his own health and is now committed to helping his patients live a long and healthy low-carb lifestyle, too!

Australian anti-sugar advocate and author David Gillespie is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

As bad as the obesity epidemic has become here in the United States over the past few years, there's one other country in the world where we have met our match: Australia. In the land of kangaroos, meat on the barbie and no worries, there's actually great concern over the weight and health of the people of this great nation. And David Gillespie is on a one-man mission to help people get to the root cause of what is happening in their diets that's making them fat and sick.

David was featured in Episode 219 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" in January 2009 discussing his book Sweet Poison: Why Sugar Is Making Us Fat. Over the past few years he has been staying busy continuing to promote the dangers of consuming fructose, but also recognizes many of the sacred cows about nutrition being promoted by the food and diet industry are just plain wrong. Eat less, move more, cut your saturated fat consumption, eat more polyunsaturated vegetable oils, take loads of supplements--the list goes on and on.

He exposes the risks involved in living this way in his brand new book (not yet available in the US) called Big Fat Lies: How The Diet Industry Is Making You Sick, Fat & Poor. Listen in to today's podcast as Jimmy and David discuss what's wrong with the nutritional advice being given to consumers in Australia and America and what it's going to take to turn it all around.

Fitness coach and author Angela Ross is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Jimmy has long been a proponent of people using a glucometer to measure the true value of how well your nutritional plan is working for you. Even better than the scale, a glucometer whether you are diabetic or not could be the key missing link in reaching your weight and health goals. Fitness coach and former Marine Angela Ross knows abundantly about this and has been sharing this secret with the clients she trains at "The Gym Cellar." She has published an amazing new book on the subject entitled The Glucometer: A Self-Empowering Tool to a Healthy and Lean Body that includes a special 21-day journal with daily challenges to make sure you are on the right path.

Obviously, the plan includes an exercise program, shopping lists, recipes and meal planning to know exactly what you need to do while testing your blood sugar. Not surprisingly, if your glucometer shows higher readings then you will most likely need to lower your carbohydrate intake. Listen in today as Jimmy and Angela get into the nitty gritty of how this easy-to-access blood sugar testing monitor could give you the information you need to become optimally healthy and fit for life!

Trained in naturopathic medicine at the University of Bridgeport’s College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2002, she is abundantly aware that the human body is not a machine that responds well to things like prescription drugs and weird science experiments with our food supply. Zeroing in on real, whole foods that will nourish your body and make it run optimally healthy is the premise of everything she does. In 2003 she founded the Healthy Daes Naturopathic Medical Center in Silver Spring, Maryland and is teaching her patients a new way to look at living healthy! Listen in today as Jimmy chats with Dr. Dae about this wave of the future in medicine.
