A reformed fast-food addict and overweight child who understands the challenges, anxiety and depression that come hand-in-hand with looking different from everyone else named David White is our guest today in Episode 1014 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Childhood obesity is a major health crisis that is progressively getting worse and worse. If the next generation doesn't learn how to get this problem under control, then we might be facing insurmountable challenges like we've never seen before. This is why a Aussie CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach Level 3, CHEK Practitioner Level 1, physical therapy student, recovered food addict, and a child who battled illness, obesity and depression for most of his schooling life named David White has decided to become a part of the solution by creating an upcoming online event on October 12-19, 2015 at TheChildObesitySummit.com. David is a strong believer that health and medicine aren't owned by any one person or institute, but by the person who is looking to achieve a health goal. He believes that health is in our DNA and innate wisdom of our bodies, and that the best health practitioners teach people how to be their own doctors. That's why he's gathered these 27 amazing world experts, including our very own Jimmy Moore.

Listen in as Jimmy and David discuss what it was like growing up as an overweight child, why people actually decide to make a change and what it takes to stay on the straight and narrow, how a child's life transformation and weight loss is both similar and different from an adult's, how to encourage your child to transform their life and take positive actions to produce change, and the absolute worst thing you can say to your child to try to encourage them to flourish. This is an engaging and personal conversation that will whet your appetite for The Child Obesity Summit.

Low-carb physician and bestselling author Dr. Eric Westman is our guest today in Episode 1013 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

We live in the golden age of instant information at our fingertips. With the power of the Internet as close as a home computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, now more than ever people are accessing useful data that was once kept silenced. The low-carb, high-fat message has made some major inroads in recent years thanks to the increased science, bestselling books, and major influencers getting the message out in full force. One such advocate is none other than the Director of the Duke Lifestyle Medical Clinic in Durham, North Carolina and Jimmy's coauthor on Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity named Dr. Eric Westman. He's taking his passion for advancing the science into the mainstream to the next level with the brand new Adapt Your Life website.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Westman discuss why the Adapt Your Life website was created, how low-carb diets are based on strong scientific and clinical evidence, how Dr. Westman hopes to take his experience with thousands of patients and multiply it hundreds of times over, why trustworthy and easy to understand information is so sorely needed in nutrition, the world-renowned low-carb experts who are available for people who visit the Adapt Your Life website, the kind of information to the latest studies and information on low-carb living, the frequently asked questions about low-carb that are addressed, why this website is completely free for people to use, and what the next Clarity book they will be writing together.

Paleo blogger and New York Times bestselling cookbook author Russ Crandall is our guest today in Episode 1012 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

One of the most difficult temptations that so many people must face when they go low-carb or Paleo is the desire for their favorite dishes from their favorite restaurants. Unfortunately, these have far too many sugary and grain-based carbohydrates, vegetable oils, and other suspect ingredients to be healthy for you anymore. That's what led a talented home cook named Russ Crandall from "The Domestic Man" blog to recreate these popular recipes and make them Paleo-friendly for people wanting to eat healthier in his brand new New York Times bestselling book Paleo Takeout: Restaurant Favorites Without the Junk. Russ has quite the compelling story about how he suffered from a series of life-threatening illnesses, including a rare autoimmune condition that doctors told him could only be managed with a handful of prescription medications he would have to take daily for the rest of his life. This didn't sit well with him, so he set forth on a journey to fix his health with nutrition by cutting out gluten and consuming nutrient-dense, real, whole foods instead--and his health instantaneously was restored.

Listen in as Jimmy and Russ talk about the physical and emotional toll of his declining health, how Paleo pulled him out of the pits of health calamity into the vibrant man he is today, how his love for cooking led him to want to provide recipes for others on their own healing journey, the exciting plan he had to release an e-book with popular restaurant favorites done Paleo-styled that caught the attention of a major publisher, who he wrote Paleo Takeout for, and his stance on the whole white rice vs. brown rice vs. cauliflower rice controversy. Russ is one of the really good guys in the Paleo community and we think you're gonna love what he has to share in today's interview. ENJOY!

Fat loss specialist, fitness coach, and author Jason Seib is our guest today in Episode 1010 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

While the focus of changing nutritional habits is slowly moving towards doing it for your health, there is still a great need for so many people to find something that will help them lose the undesired fat that is still lurking on their body. Anyone who has battled the bulge for any length of time will tell you how incredibly difficult this task can really be. That's why Portland, Oregon-based fat loss specialist Jason Seib from Clackamas Physical Conditioning decided to create a brand new program to do just that. It's called the AltShift Diet and is an e-book he created outlining the protocol he has used with so many of his clients, including his beautiful wife Sheryl who developed recipes for this plan. Jason has been testing this plan with multiple clients over the past year who have struggled with fat loss and it has worked for everyone he has tried it on so far. Listen in as Jimmy and Jason dive deeper into what's up with this new AltShift Diet protocol.

It's 2015 and the fear of saturated fat is still going strong despite overwhelming evidence showing it is such a healthy part of a nutrient-dense diet. For a dietitian from the UK who specializes in helping people with diabetes named Trudi Deakin, she is sharing this fact with her clients assuring them the negative information about saturated fat on health is just plain wrong.

She's the author of a book about it entitled Eat Fat: A Step by Step Guide to Low-Carb Living and has been getting some amazing mainstream attention for her work, including this Daily Mail column.

Listen in as Jimmy and Trudi talk about the continuing myths about saturated fat that persist, why people erroneously think carbohydrates are essential, how the presence of ketones in the body is not dangerous, what we can do to better educate the public about nutrition and health, the major differences between using nutrition vs. medical management for treating Type 2 diabetes, and so much more.

Cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Hill is our guest today in Episode 1008 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

As much as people look at a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet for weight loss purposes, one of the greatest health benefits of this way of eating are the positive effects it has on brain health. This is something that has become abundantly aware to a UCLA-based cognitive neuroscientist named Dr. Andrew Hill. This his education and experience looking at how the brain operates to help slow down the aging process. Here is the bottom line question he asks about himself virtually daily: Do I really think we can change our brains? Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hill talk about how low-carb, good fats, and ketogenic diets can help people take back control of their brain again.

Hub City Farmer's Market Executive Director Brendan Buttimer is our guest today in Episode 1007 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Perhaps you've noticed in recent years the rise in popularity of farmer's markets all across the United States. As people begin to reject sugar, grains, and unhealthy foods that are typically found in grocery stores, they are turning to the safe haven of their local farmer's market to find fresh, nutrient-dense, real food to provide a healthy alternative to their typical food budget. Our host Jimmy Moore is a strong supporter of his local farmer's market called Hub City Farmer's Market in Spartanburg, South Carolina and he decided to conduct an interview on his Periscope account recently with the Executive Director named Brendan Buttimer (you can watch the footage with the ambience of a typical busy Saturday morning there in the video below). This is the first time (but not the last) that Jimmy has conducted a podcast interview using Periscope. Listen in and enjoy!

Blogger, neuroscientist, and fitness model Chris Walker is our guest today in Episode 1006 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

Imagine for a moment that you're a young man just getting started in your adult life attending university to become a neuroscientist. Your life is so full of vigor, strength, and promise for a great future that's about to begin for you. That was the life that Chris Walker expected when he attended Duke University in Durham, North Carolina in his early 20's--but then he got the fateful diagnosis that no man ever wants to hear. His testosterone level clocked in at the shockingly low 11 ng/dL due to a tumor sitting on his pituitary gland. This set Chris out on a personal journey to find a natural way to boost his testosterone which he was able to raise to 1192 as a result of so many strategies he now outlines on his website TestShock.com. Listen in as Jimmy and Chris talk about this harrowing story with a happy ending.

Medical school professor Dr. Mark Cucuzzella is our guest today in Episode 1005 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

One of the things we've often chronicled on this podcast over the years is the severe lack of nutritional health information taught to the students who are pursuing a degree in medicine. But what if some bold professor at a medical school who has learned about the intricate connection between diet and disease? Well that's exactly what is happening at West Virginia University School of Medicine thanks to the work of a professor of medicine there named Dr. Mark Cucuzzella, MD. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cucuzzella have quite the engaging conversation about how he is changing the next generation of doctor to look at low-carbohydrate nutrition as it relates to health.
