Hollywood personal trainer and health podcaster Vinnie Tortorich is our guest today in Episode 651 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

It seems like there's another new face popping up on the health scene every single week as more and more people are becoming enlightened to the message of healthy low-carb nutrition. The science supporting a ketogenic diet as a means for optimizing your weight, health and exercise performance is compelling and is capturing the attention of people from every angle of the overall wellness community. That's what hooked a personal trainer named Vinnie Tortorich who has become so infuriated by the blatant lies we have been told about what a healthy diet and exercise routine looks like that he decided to start a podcast taking on the moniker of "America's Angriest Trainer."

Vinnie, along with his lovely co-host Anna Vovich, pump out some fantastic information about nutrition, healthy living and some irreverent yet poignant commentary on the absolute craziness that is the world we live in these days. Listen in as Jimmy and Vinnie talk about his work with Hollywood stars like Howie Mandel, his extensive background in fitness and exercise, why he turned to podcasting to start spreading the right messages about health, the battle he fought with leukemia and his exciting new project with noted author and TV movie producer Dean Lorey that he expects to make a major impact. If you like "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" and want just a little bit more (with some colorful language thrown in from time to time for good measure), then check out Vinnie's podcast and listen to him in today's interview!

Cancer survivor and ketogenic diet health proponent Elaine Cantin is our guest in Episode 650 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Cantin Ketogenic Diet on The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb ShowWhen Elaine Cantin received the devastating diagnosis that she had breast cancer, her doctors wanted to put her on an aggressive treatment of chemotherapy to deal with it. But this didn't sound good to her at all after watching many of her own family members go down this same road with little success. When Elaine's tumor continued to grow in size, her doctors insisted on emergency surgery and radiation treatments. But she had been already been learning about the ketogenic diet for epilepsy and began implementing her own modified version of this nutritional plan. Within weeks, her tumor shrunk and shrunk until it completely disappeared. Her oncologist was stunned and declared her cancer-free.

After seeing the tremendous success her ketogenic diet had curing her breast cancer, Elaine decided to start using her diet on her son with Type 1 diabetes to see if they could reduce his dependence on insulin. When he sticks with the diet, his blood sugars remain stable without the need for taking insulin. Elaine has documented all of the information she has learned about her version of the ketogenic diet in her book The Cantin Ketogenic Diet: For Cancer, Type I Diabetes & Other Ailments which she talks with Jimmy about in today's interview.

Paleo success story and stand-up comedian Dan French is our guest in Episode 649 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

As the low-carb and Paleo lifestyle principles continue to be implemented by real people from a variety of backgrounds, it's inevitable that those people will use their talents to spread the word to others about the life-changing impact this way of eating and living has afforded them. That's exactly what Austin, TX-based funnyman Dan French did when he shed 125 pounds off of his body with the Paleo diet. After obtaining his Ph.D. in the subject of Rhetoric (yes, that's a real degree!), Dr. Dan French used his Emmy Award nominated comedy-writing talents (working with the likes of David Letterman, George Lopez, Wanda Sykes and Dennis Miller, for example) to create "The Comedian's Diet" where he not only provides audiences with gut-wrenching laughs but also a healthy dose of nutritional truths!

Listen in as Jimmy and Dan talk about his eclectic career background working in comedy, the extraordinary story of how Paleo radically changed his life forever and how he is combining his comedy talents and his Paleo awakening experience to take the message to the masses. Plus, don't miss hearing about an exciting brand new health podcast Dan will be doing with a hilarious Paleo RD named Amy Kubal coming THIS WEEK to iTunes!

Registered dietitian and naturopathic medical school student Aglaee Jacob is our guest in Episode 648 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Digestive Health by Agalee JacobConventional nutritional wisdom abounds abundantly amongst the majority of today's primary educators about what constitutes a healthy menu plan--registered dietitians, aka RDs. Unfortunately, their definition of what "healthy" means usually ends up being a diet that is low in fat and calories, high in "healthy whole grains" and heavy on some pro-inflammatory omega-6-rich vegetable oil fats. But for Aglaee Jacob "The Paleo Dietitian", she's part of a brand new generation of RDs who are willing to stand up for what the science is saying regarding good nutrition and it bears little resemblance to the typical stuff you hear about the relationship between food and health.

Aglaee was traditionally-trained in dietetics, but quickly lost her enthusiasm for it after years of failing to see the results with her clients that she thought they should. But after going through her own personal health struggles and realizing the power of the therapeutic use of Paleo nutrition and lifestyle strategies for herself, it rekindled her passion for helping improve the health of her clients. She's the author of the April 15, 2013 release of the book Digestive Health with REAL Food: A Practical Guide to an Anti-Inflammatory, Nutrient Dense Diet for IBS & Other Digestive Issues dedicated to the subject of gut health. Listen in as Jimmy and Aglaee discuss the work she does and why she's spreading the message on behalf of a lower-carb, higher-fat Paleo into the mainstream of registered dietitians. Let today's podcast interview encourage you that a nutritional revolution is happening behind-the-scenes.

Chinese Medicine Practitioner, acupuncturist and natural fertility educator Nat Kringoudas is our guest in Episode 647 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Fertilise Yourself by Nat KringoudisSo many people these days are dealing with fertility issues now more than ever before. According to the latest statistics from the U.S. Centers For Disease Control, over 7.4 million women ages 15-44 have attempted to use some kind of alternative therapy to get pregnant such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and the numbers just keep getting worse and worse. And a natural fertility specialist in Melbourne, Australia named Nat Kringoudis thinks she knows why and it has a lot to do with our nutritionally corrupt modern-day diet that is loaded with excessive carbohydrates and not enough healthy fats and proteins.

Nat has written a fantastic e-book on this subject outlining her basic philosophy for eating and living for fertility called Fertilise Yourself loaded with tips and tricks for becoming well and maximizing your chances for getting pregnant naturally. Listen in as Jimmy and Nat talk about how eating for your fertility is actually the optimal way for improving your health. This Aussie has plenty of fantastic information to share to rekindle that dream of having a baby. ENJOY!

Australian chiropractor, wellness expert and health podcaster Dr. Brett Hill is our guest today in Episode 644 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

DavidGillespieSweetPoisonQuitPlanUKVersionBefore sharing today's primary podcast interview, we first wanted to bring to you a very quick mini-interview with a Brisbane, Australia-based man named David Gillespie (listen to my previous interviews with David in Episode 219 and Episode 592) who has some exciting news to share with our listeners. For those of you who are unfamiliar with David's work in the land of Oz, he's basically the Gary Taubes or Dr. Robert Lustig in that country championing the cause of sugar-free living as a means for optimizing weight and health. Jimmy got to witness this celebrity first-hand during his recent "Low Carb Down Under" speaking tour through Australia in November 2012 listening to David speak and hearing story after story from people who said they came into the healthy low-carb and Paleo community after reading one of David's books. But the Aussies can't have him all to themselves--the rest of the world to be exposed to his great work, too! That's why David has decided to release a brand new British Kindle e-book (that is also available in the United States) called The Sweet Poison Quit Plan (UK Edition). This book is specifically for people who know they need to give up sugar but aren't sure exactly how to go about doing it practically. Listen in as Jimmy and David talk about why this resource is sorely needed now more than ever!

Dr. Brett Hill's book How To Eat An ElephantIn our main interview today, we travel from Brisbane down to Adelaide, Australia where we meet up with a fascinating chiropractor with a unique bent on helping people live as optimally healthy as they possibly can named Dr. Brett Hill. He is one of the three fabulous co-hosts of the #1 ranked health podcast in Australia called "The Wellness Guys" and is giving his patients and anyone else willing to listen some practical advice on what healthy living principles look like with his new book How To Eat An Elephant: Simple solutions for lifelong energy and vitality. Dr. Hill realized a long time ago that in order to make changes that last forever you have to start "one bite-sized chunk at a time." Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hill discuss many of the 97 recommendations he shares about in this book. Start munching on that pachyderm!

British low-carb nutrition advocate and obesity expert Zoe Harcombe returns as our guest today in Episode 643 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

We've been told by the so-called health "experts" that the reason why so many people are dealing with a weight problem is because they eat too much and don't exercise enough. This notion has been repeated so often that it has just become generally accepted as fact without anyone ever looking into whether it's actually true or not. That's why we invited back Zoe Harcombe (listen to my previous interview with her in Episode 427) to share about her brand new 2013 book revealing the truth about why weight gain happens (and it has very little to calories). It's called Why Do You Overeat? When All You Want Is To Be Slim and it pulls the curtain back on the conventional wisdom that continues to plague those who are desperately seeking a way to lose weight and get healthy for good. Listen in as Jimmy and Zoe have another delightful conversation about the reality of obesity and how low-carb living can help reverse it.

Ultramarathon runner and low-carb endurance athlete Timothy Allen Olson is our guest today in Episode 642 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

We've often heard within the context of endurance athletics that you must be consuming copious amounts of carbohydrates in your diet in order to adequately fuel your performance. But what would happen if an athlete decided to shift his training from being a sugar-burner to a fat-burner using ketones for fuel instead? That's what marathon runner Timothy Allen Oson from the "Sole To Soul Rhythm" blog decided to put to the test after experiencing stomach pain during his races. We'll talk with him more about this in the primary interview in today's podcast.

But first, we wanted to share about an exciting new research endeavor that we think YOU should be a part of. It's called The American Gut Project and it's the world's LARGEST open-source, community driven effort to characterize the microbial diversity of the American public. In a brief conversation with Jimmy, Human Food Project Founder Jeff Leach shares about why it's important to learn more about the microbes in your gut, his desire for a wide diversity in stool samples from Paleo, low-carbers, vegans and even SAD diet eaters, the need to raise $400,000 to pay for the expenses of conducing this research and the differences that will be seen between gut biota with people in various places around the world. This is a critically important project that we hope all of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" podcast listeners will participate in, so CLICK HERE to join Jimmy and Christine in finding out what's in your gut!

After coming in sixth place in the 2011 Western States 100-mile Endurance Run when he went through an excruciating stretch of running that had him stop to go to the bathroom over 20 times towards the end of the race, Timothy knew he needed to make a change. So he cut the gluten and then most of the carbohydrates out of his diet that helped him experience some remarkable improvements in the stomach pain as well as in his training. When the 2012 Western States 100 rolled around in June 2012, Timothy was ready to take on this challenge of running such a long race in a mostly-ketogenic state. What happened? Well, Tim not only came in first place to win the race, but he did it in a record time of 14:46:44--21 minutes faster than the previous course best!

Watch this video of Timothy Olson's 2012 Western States 100 win:

http://vimeo.com/45046731

Listen in as Jimmy and Timothy talk about how he has always had a passion for running, the interest he got in learning more about nutritional performance due to his own physical challenges, why "carb-loading" is still so popular amongst his fellow endurance athletes, why he chooses to eat a high-fat, low-carb diet to be in a ketogenic state, his historic win at the 2012 Western States 100 ultramarathon, how a late-race challenge from one of his fellow competitors pushed him to finish strong, what he did to avoid "bonking" during the race, his new sponsors giving him the freedom to race in places like New Zealand in 2013 and so much more. You've heard about this ketogenic diet marathon runner, now hear directly from the man himself in his own words in today's interview.
