Psychology professor Dr. David Diamond is our guest today in Episode 697 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

David Diamond, Ph.D. was like any other American in dealing with his health. He obediently at the high-carb diet with lots of whole grains while faithfully cutting his fat intake as a means for getting healthy. There was only one problem--his triglycerides were through the roof! This University of South Florida College of Arts and Sciences department faculty member wasn't about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing, so he started researching into what he could do to reduce his soaring triglyceride levels and take off a few extra pounds that had crept on.

That's when he discovered the low-carb lifestyle that would allow him to consume foods like red meat, eggs and butter--and his triglycerides dropped like a rock without medications! He became so passionate about this topic that he created a college class about the lies and distortions we've been told about public health and he was invited to give a lecture about it on campus entitled "How Bad Science and Big Business Created the Obesity Epidemic" and it's gone viral with over 85,000+ views and counting:

Listen in to today's interview as Jimmy and Dr. Diamond talk about his personal health journey, how the vegan diet advocates like Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. John McDougall are incredibly shortsighted in the way they think about the role of nutrition and health and why he doesn't seek out attention or accolades for the work he is doing educating the public. We have a feeling you're gonna REALLY enjoy this one from one of the featured experts in Jimmy's forthcoming August 27, 2013 book release Cholesterol Clarity.

Primal exercise and nutrition expert and former special investigator for the US Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Health and Human Services Gary Collins is our guest today in Episode 696 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

primal-power-methodThere's a lot more corruption going on behind-the-scenes of the food and drug industries than you could even imagine and former special investigator for the US Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Health and Human Services Gary Collins from the "Gary's Health Tips" blog has seen it all. He has seen first-hand how doctors are performing procedures on patients whether they need them or not all for the financial windfall that would come from doing them. It's this kind of criminal action that got Gary interested in the primal/Paleo lifestyle as someone who has always taken good care of his physical fitness. He now realizes that people have to take control of their own health because the medical profession and government may not have your best interests in mind. Listen in as Jimmy and Gary discuss his book Primal Power Method: Unlocking the Ancient Secret to Health as well as more stories from Gary's work in intelligence and as a special agent.

Paleo blogger and author Alison Golden is our guest today in Episode 695 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

guide-to-paleoThere are so many voices in the Paleo community these days telling you what to eat, how to cook and all the wonderful benefits of implementing this hunter-gatherer concept into the modern world. But Alison Golden from the "PaleoNonPaleo" blog understands that the missing element in so many of the Paleo books and blogs out there is real practicality in bringing it all into action. That's why she wrote her book The Modern No-Nonsense Guide to Paleo: Develop Your Skills to Lose Weight, Gain Energy and Take Back Your Health to give assistance to those people who are new to Paleo into making a smooth and simple transition. Listen in as Jimmy and Alison talk about this critically important topic in today's episode.

donal-oneillWe are constantly on the lookout for people who are doing great work on behalf of helping others cut through the morass of information about nutrition and health. Donal O'Neill from "Let Fat Be Thy Medicine" most certainly fits that description. He decided he wanted to make a film highlighting and featuring the great carbohydrate-restriction work of two former LLVLC Show podcast guests Professor Tim Noakes from South Africa and Dr. John Briffa from the UK. The footage for this outstanding new movie called Cereal Killers is already underway and Donal needs YOUR help with his Kickstarter fundraising campaign to get it finished and out there to make an impact on the way we eat. Listen in at the very beginning as Jimmy (who has seen the one-hour of proof of concept footage) and Donal discuss in a brief 10-minute mini-interview why he personally decided to do this project, his self-experiment for the film eating a low-carb, high-fat diet and the hopes and dreams he has for taking the message of this film to a worldwide audience! PLEASE HELP SUPPORT THIS EFFORT!

Belgian Internet and technology entrepreneur Walter De Brouwer is our guest today in Episode 691 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

scandauIf you're old enough to remember watching the original Star Trek television series, then you'll recall that Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy would wave something called a tricorder across the body of someone in sick bay to see what was wrong with them. Did you ever think in your wildest dreams that you might be able to see this kind of technology move out of the realm of science fiction and into reality in your lifetime? Well, believe it or not we're just months away from seeing the world's very first medical tricorder called the Scanadu Scout utilizing the advancements in smartphone technology to bring this to life in the 21st Century.

Walter De Brouwer is the founder and CEO of Scanadu where he is leading a revolution in average, everyday people taking charge of their own health as a preventative measure by using the devices his company is working on. After see his own child deal with a health crisis being hooked up to machine after machine, Walter realized the power that knowing where you stand in your health on a regular basis outside the confines of a hospital or doctor's office is critically important. It's what motivated him to create his new company that he hopes will drive the future innovations in health forward.

Listen in as Jimmy and Walter discuss why this technology is coming at the perfect time, how the winds of change are happening within the way health care is being done, what measurements of health the Scanadu Scout will provide people during the 10-second forehead scan, the rise in the n=1 quantitative-self movement, the development of other technologies that are coming to allow you to test your urine, saliva and blood, and how YOU can get in on the action by supporting their IndieGoGo fundraising campaign for the Scanadu Scout (help them surpass $1 million) by Friday, June 21, 2013!

London, England-based Paleo/primal movement and nutrition specialist and brand new author Darryl Edwards is our guest today in Episode 690 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

paleo-fitnessIn our modern-day society built around convenience and literally being inside all the time, we've seemed to have forgotten about the lost art of play and how important that is to our physical and mental well-being. But Darryl Edwards from "The Fitness Explorer" certainly hasn't. He's educated himself in the importance of moving in the right way and leads some really fun PRIMALity playtime exercise sessions like nothing you've ever seen before--SEE FOR YOURSELF! In fact, Jimmy had the privilege to participate in one of Darryl's movement workshops at the 2013 PaleoFX earlier this year in Austin, Texas. Darryl has released a book about his philosophy on nutrition and exercise called Paleo Fitness: A Primal Training and Nutrition Program to Get Lean, Strong and Healthy and Jimmy enjoys reuniting with Darryl for a fun and engaging conversation in today's episode.

Bestselling low-carb cookbook author Dana Carpender and low-carb industry veteran Andrew Dimino are our guests today in Episode 688 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

[powerpress]

Fat-Fast-Cookbook-cover-560x840When Andrew Dimino started up CarbSmart.com in the late 1990s prior to the explosion in popularity of the low-carb diet in the early 2000s, little did he know the wild journey his company would take starting as an online retailer selling products to help people following a carbohydrate-restricted lifestyle. But about a year ago, he decided to take an incredible risk to the business he had built for over a decade to transition his very popular web site from one of e-commerce to invaluable online low-carb magazine. He joins us today along with the Managing Editor of CarbSmart.com who is a well-known name in the low-carb community--Dana Carpender from "Hold The Toast." Together this dynamic duo manages a team of contributing writers (including our very own Jimmy Moore!) who regularly present loads of free information about low-carb living.

Since Dana is an accomplished low-carb recipe-maker extraordinaire (including her latest book 500 Paleo Recipes), Andrew asked her to write an e-cookbook for people desiring weight loss and to get into nutritional ketosis. That's when they birthed the Fat Fast Cookbook: 50 Easy Recipes To Jump Start Weight Loss with lots of high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb recipes which will be made available in traditional book form soon. Additionally, they recently launched the first and only low-carb magazine for your iPad (other platforms coming soon!) with ambitious plans in the coming months to keep the low-carb revolution going strong. Listen in as Jimmy has a friendly chat with his two good low-carb loving buddies Andrew and Dana talking about this shift in focus that CarbSmart.com has made and how that will help YOU in the years to come make your healthy low-carb lifestyle the best it can be!
