WHY IS DEAN ORNISH CALLING LOW-CARB A HIGH-PROTEIN DIET?

The Myth Of High-Protein Diets

In today’s episode, Dietitian Cassie and I are joined by Paleo blogger, author, and television show host Camille Macres from “Camille’s Paleo Kitchen” and low-carb, high-fat diet advocate Leanne Vogel from the “Healthful Pursuit” blog as well as YouTube channel. Listen to me and Cassie gab about our talks this week during The Diabetes World Online Summit with Dr. Brian Mowll that continues through March 30, 2015 (with an encore day coming up early next week) and my recent Instagram photos of the crazy food-like products like Food Should Taste Good Gouda chips and All Natural Super Crackers with broccoli.

IS KEVIN BACON THE PERFECT SPOKESMAN FOR EGGS?

Kevin Bacon stars in egg industry campaign

Listen in as Cassie, Camille, Leanne, and I share about Dr. Dean Ornish’s latest attack on the low-carb diet (read Dr. Eades’ rebuttal column), why parents think sugary drinks are healthy, the rationalization for not reducing sugar in your diet for health, a new study that showed a relatively low-carb diet gives a 400-calorie-a-day metabolic advantage over a low-fat diet, the choice of actor Kevin Bacon as the new official spokesperson for eggs, and the decision by McDonald’s to stop using chickens given antibiotics. Plus, don’t miss Leanne’s Flaxseed Cinnamon Bun Muffins, Camille’s favorite Water Kefir recipe (that she forgot about on the show!), and her Power Bars recipe featured in Keto Clarity. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

PLUS, don’t miss Cassie as part of next week’s Love Your Mind, Love Your Body Telesummit.

The LLVLC Show (Episode 939): Abel James Takes Your Diet And Lifestyle Change To The Wild Side

INTRODUCING LOW-CARB, HIGH-FAT PILI NUTS

In Episode 939 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we welcome in a #1 iTunes health podcaster, Paleo coach and author named Abel James as our guest today. There are a few really passionate people involved in the health community who are making a huge difference in the lives of others through their hard work and commitment to helping others improve their weight and health through basic shifts in their nutrition and lifestyle. One of those people is the infectiously joyous man with the golden voice named Abel James. He’s the inspirational man behind the top-ranked iTunes health podcast called “The Fat-Burning Man Show” and popular blogger at FatBurningMan.com. He’s had quite the influence within the Paleo community but he’s taking his message to a wider audience with the April 7, 2015 release of his new book The Wild Diet: Get Back to Your Roots, Burn Fat, and Drop Up to 20 Pounds in 40 Days.

“The Paleo community knows what Paleo is. It’s a great template. But a lot of people are being introduced to Paleo with products that have nothing to do with what Paleo is.” — Abel James

Listen in to hear Abel and I discuss his influence on my decision to get a standing work desk to record podcasts and blog, how he got his e-book picked up by a major publisher called Avery Books, the fun and goofy guest-hosting he and George Bryant did on this podcast, his whirlwind journey traveling around the world (including touring with the Tim McGraw band), the conference he spoke at in Florida talking about how stupid writing a book is that got the attention of a book agent, how incredibly popular his “The Fat-Burning Man Show” iTunes health podcast is, how podcasting has helped open the doors to average people sharing quality information without gatekeepers, how members of The Tim McGraw band are big fans of his show, the album he “accidentally” recorded with the leader of the Tim McGraw band, why he’s purposely stayed away from using the Paleo word (despite the publisher’s urging), how the term Paleo has become overtaken by the marketers distorting what Paleo really means, how we’re eating freaky foods that wouldn’t be recognized by our great-grandmother as food, the Atkins Nutritionals representative who came up to Jimmy in South Africa, why you have to qualify food by calling it “real,” how people have tried to do the right thing for their health and yet they’ve gotten worse, why getting healthy is about more than simply changing your diet (it’s those “boring” lifestyle factors that are even more important), find out what your biological advantages are and use them to your benefit, how his allergy to antibiotics got his mom interested in herbal medicine, his songwriting ability that enables him to create “little bombs” of common sense information, the health halo people have about “healthy whole grains,” the wackiness of the way food-like products are promoted as healthy, the big food company he consulted once who was working on a shelf-stable milk product, stuff that comes out of restaurants or in boxes don’t have any relationship to health, when you eat well your body craves the good stuff with healthy addictions, the various meals he’s been able to enjoy in other cultures that’s unlike American food culture, how people think eating at Subway is healthy, we all have an animalistic side to our humanity that we were meant to embrace, why breakfast is generally the most dangerous meal of the day in traditional American culture, how acting old has been keeping him young, how declaring “technological bankruptcy” for a few weeks opened his eyes to how most of the information is just noise, and why doing the least desirable task at the beginning of your day will make the rest of your day go well. Abel is an incredible communicator of information you’ll LOVE!

The LLVLC Show (Episode 938): Franziska Spritzler Promotes Whole Food Low-Carb For Health & Beauty

GRAIN-FREE REAL FOOD-BASED LOW-CARB SNACKS

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship

In Episode 938 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have a fabulous registered dietitian, low-carb blogger, and author named Franziska Spritzler as our guest today. Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

“If you follow a healthy diet and you take care of yourself, that beauty from within will come out. You can be beautiful at any age.” — Franziska Spritzler

Listen in as Franziska and I share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

The LLVLC Show (Episode 937): Dr. Brian Mowll Hosts The Diabetes World Summit March 23-30, 2015

TRY THE QUEST NUTRITION LINE OF LOW-CARB PRODUCTS

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 937 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have a certified diabetes educator, board-certified chiropractic physician, and IFM certified in functional medicine Dr. Brian Mowll as our guest today. Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including ME. This is such an exciting event that I decided to turn the tables on Dr. Mowll to interview him in a special simulcast interview that airs on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” and during The Diabetes Summit today. Register for FREE here or you can purchase the entire Diabetes World Summit right away.

“The diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes can be the tipping point of people changing their life. But some people bury their head in the sand until they have something serious happen.” — Dr. Brian Mowll

Listen in as Dr. Mowll and I share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

WHY IN THE WORLD IS THE 2015 DGAC PROMOTING REFINED GRAINS?

DGAC 2015: Reducing refined grains could lead to “nutrient deficiency”

Listen in as Cassie, Dr. Anna, Lea, and I share what we think about a major dietitian group promoting processed American cheese as a healthy option for kids, a new study that finds a 46% increased risk of diabetes from taking a cholesterol-lowering statin drug, the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recommending refined grains to prevent nutrient deficiencies, how the sugar industry was deeply involved many decades ago in the research of the health effects of sugar, Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s report on all the ways sugar is hidden in the food supply, and the heart-protective qualities of consuming grass-fed butter. Plus, don’t miss Lea’s Paleo Chocolate Beet Cake recipe and Dr. Anna’s Mighty Maca Green Drink recipe at the end. Let’s do this–pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!
