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!
Conventional 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.
