Stress expert and retired NASA Life Sciences Division Director Dr. Joan Vernikos is our guest today in Episode 606 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

After a highly successful career serving at NASA from 1993-2003 as both a researcher and administrator, Dr. Vernikos has been committed to bringing her vast amount of knowledge and experiences to the health of the general public. Working with astronauts for many years and helping them deal with the stresses of a job that keeps them at zero gravity for long periods of time has given her a unique perspective on an aspect of healthy living that many people don't have on their radar screen. Dr. Vernikos has written a book about it called Sitting Kills, Moving Heals: How Everyday Movement Will Prevent Pain, Illness, and Early Death - and Exercise Alone Won't that will probably have you avoiding sitting as much as you possibly can after you hear this interview today! Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Vernikos talk about what's wrong with sitting for long periods of time and the health impact of being deliberate about including movement into every aspect of your daily life.

Empowered patient advocate Rocky Angelucci is our guest today in Episode 605 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

With a name like Rocky, you'd expect to see a man who is the picture of health and vitality. That definitely describes the life of Rocky Angelucci these days, but it hasn't always been that way. Not long ago, he had to deal with a very serious heart condition -- an atrial fibrillation -- that led him on a two-year journey to discover the truth about healthy low-carb Paleo living. Along the way, Rocky was exposed to Tom Naughton's FAT HEAD documentary and the rest is now history.

After finding the truth and getting his health back, Rocky is now incredibly passionate about spreading the good science supporting healthy nutrition and is doing that brilliantly through his 2012 book Don't Die Early: The Life You Save Can Be Your Own. Listen in to today's interview as Jimmy and Rocky discuss how this man who was on the brink of death is now giving hope for others to get healthy again too!

Former 538-pound man Jesse Stilwell and Paleo physician Dr. Jeffrey Galvin are our guests today in Episode 604 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Get ready to be inspired in your low-carb Paleo lifestyle today as you hear from a man who once weighed in excess of 500+ pounds and was able to take the weight off and get his life back for good! His name is Jesse Stillwell from the "Food Is For Fuel" and what a tale he shares with us during this interview. Because of his morbid obesity, Jesse developed a severe case of agoraphobia that led him to become a shut-in playing video games for 16 hours a day and no job which paralyzed his efforts to shed the pounds and get healthy for many years. But once he discovered the powerful, life-changing low-carb Paleo way of eating, the best was yet to come for him. And he went on to lose an extraordinary amount of weight off of his body--280 pounds!

After such an incredible turnaround came to this man who once believed he was destined by his genetics to be fat for his entire life, he then set out to help others who are struggling with their own need and desire to lose weight and be healthy. At first he thought he should do that by becoming a personal trainer. But when Dr. Jeffrey Galvin from the Concord, NC-based Vitality Medical Wellness Institute heard about Jesse's story, he had something bigger in mind for him. Dr. Galvin decided to give Jesse a job in January 2012 as a health and wellness advocate to provide nutrition advice and inspiration to their patients. This former agoraphobic shut-in is now doing public speaking events and one-on-one counseling to others who are in the kind of seemingly helpless, hopeless situation he found himself in.

Listen to this encouraging podcast to hear Jesse and Dr. Galvin share with Jimmy what life was like before, how low-carb Paleo swooped in to rescue Jesse's life and how these two are taking the message to the people of North Carolina to make REAL change happen for those who so desperately need it! If you need a good pick-me-up about why this way of eating is needed for such a time as this, then don't you dare miss this interview.

Former KETO Foods low-carb food company founder and president Arne Bey is our guest today in Episode 602 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

If you've been eating a low-carb diet for at least the past six or seven years, then no doubt you remember the low-carb food company called KETO Foods. At one point back in the heyday of the low-carb food marketing trend, the company well-known for its quality low-carb shakes and other such foods was valued somewhere around $300-400 million dollars. But a series of factors (aside from the death of Dr. Atkins in 2003 and the decline in interest in low-carb food products) contributed to seeing this industry leader crumble and fall from grace leading to bankruptcy and shutting its doors for good. Learn more about the background of this story by reading this column by Arne Bey about how KETO got startedthis Star-Ledger column on the demise of KETO Foods and my May 2006 blog interview with the former product development director for KETO Foods Pete Maletto about what really happened to KETO.

Then take a listen to what the founder and president of what was once one of the largest low-carb food companies in the world shared with Jimmy about what he believes happened to a once thriving company that was forced into bankruptcy and closing its doors for good. If you ever wanted to know what happened to KETO, get the full scoop from the man who was at the helm when it all went down. Plus, don't miss what Arne Bey has to say about the current state of low-carb, the opportunities for quality food products and where he sees this trend heading in the years to come. ENJOY!

Wellness coach, certified nutrition educator and bona fide magnesium expert Morley Robbins is our guest today in Episode 602 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

We all know there are benefits to getting adequate amount of vitamin and minerals into our diets through both the foods we eat as well as added supplementation. However, many people neglect the importance of certain critical micronutrients that they need in their bodies to function as optimally healthy as possible. That's a message that Morley "Magnesium Man" Robbins is seeking to convey to the public regarding the subject of magnesium. While Vitamin D and Vitamin C get most of the headlines these days when it comes to their importance on human health, Morley makes the argument that magnesium deserves a place at the table of discussion within the context of gaining health. Listen in as Jimmy and Morley talk about this lesser-known but incredibly important nutrient that everyone needs to be more aware of getting adequate amounts of in their diet. ENJOY!

When this podcast featuring a man who lost weight and got his health back thanks to low-carb living started in earnest in Episode 1 back on October 23, 2006, little did we know what an incredible impact it would have on the lives of literally tens of thousands of people! But six years later, "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" podcast has grown to become one of the most reliable go-to resources for information about low-carb, Paleo, primal, real food nutrition, fitness and health.

One of the prizes this year was the chance to co-host this podcast with the guest of your choice for Episode 600. That winner was a guy named Nick Peterson who Jimmy met on the 2011 Low-Carb Cruise. When Nick was asked who he'd like to be a part of this podcast he would be hosting, he didn't hesitate--Tom Naughton of FAT HEAD fame! What?! Are you sure? Yep, that's who he wanted and what an excellent it was as you will hear during this celebratory show.

Paleo fitness expert from Philly Roger Dickerman and low-carb physician Dr. Colin Champ are our guests today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

It's no secret we're a little bit biased towards podcasting, especially those pertaining to health. And in case you hadn't noticed lately, there are a whole lot of really good ones popping up supporting the idea of a Paleo, primal, low-carb, real foods-based lifestyle change. AWESOME! In fact, Jimmy shared on his blog in April 2012 that one out of every four of the Top 50 Fitness & Nutrition health podcasts on iTunes were Paleo/low-carb friendly. YES!

It seems every month we get another new podcast to enjoy and one that recently caught Jimmy's attention was a podcast featuring a personal trainer with a Paleo nutrition affinity and a medical doctor who has been highly interested in low-carb diets for a very long time. They are Roger Dickerman and Dr. Colin Champ and they're the co-hosts of the superb new iTunes health podcast called "Relentless Roger & The Caveman Doctor." If you want to hear some outstanding information about your health in a non-threatening manner that's easy to understand, then this is the podcast for you to add to your arsenal. Listen in today as Jimmy speaks with Roger and Dr. Champ about how they met in their hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, what made them want to start a new podcast talking about Paleo and low-carb and what they hope to accomplish doing this weekly podcast.

Paleo nutrition consultant and author Diane Sanfilippo is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

audio

Paleo has become the big buzzword in nutrition over the past few years and for good reason--the concept of eating real, whole foods like our ancestors did that are nourishing for your body as a means for attaining optimal health is resonating with people. Thanks to the incredible leadership of stalwarts like Robb WolfMark SissonDallas & Melissa Hartwig and many more, the message is getting out further and further into the nutritional mainstream. Now it's time to add one more name to that prestigious list of Paleo powerhouses--Diana Sanfilippo.

You've first heard Diane on this podcast in early 2011 talking about her awesome work at "Balanced Bites" and then again earlier this year with Liz Wolfe, the co-host of her uber-popular iTunes Fitness & Health show "The Balanced Bites Podcast." But now she's back with what is arguably her greatest contribution to the world of health to date--her Victory Belt publishing debut entitled Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle. Listen in as Jimmy and Diane share an in-depth conversation about what is unique about this new book, the specific people who she hopes will be helped by the information she shares and her hopes and dreams for the book that go beyond sales and New York Times bestselling status (although that'd be nice, too!).
