The LLVLC Show (Episode 858): Dr. Bill Wilson – KETO CLARITY Expert Interview

TRY THE QUEST NUTRITION LINE OF LOW-CARB PRODUCTS

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

In Episode 858 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have an outstanding nutrition-minded family physician named Dr. Bill Wilson as our interview guest today in a series of exclusive podcasts featuring the various experts from my new book Keto Clarity. Are you enjoying these BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS featuring most of the 22 featured experts in my book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet? It’s been great hearing the feedback from listeners who appreciate all the information from these leading authorities in the world on the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic nutritional approach who provided the frequent “Moment Of Clarity” quotes sprinkled throughout the book. And we’re excited to keep bringing you more of these in the next few weeks.

Today’s Keto Clarity expert interview is with a Boston, Massachusetts-based family physician who focuses on optimizing brain health as a means for improving his patients’ overall health named Dr. Bill Wilson. He has had over three decades worth of experience seeing thousands of patients and has come to the conclusion that developing strategies for helping his patients improve their metabolic and brain health through nutrition is the way to go. Dr. Wilson works in a hospital and is a frequent lecturer and prolific blogger on issues related to health. He is one of the few medical doctors in the world who discovered the indelible connection between the modern diet filled with heavily-processed, carbohydrate-based foods and a condition he describes as Carbohydrate-Associated Reversible Brain syndrome (aka CARB syndrome).

Using this as his template for most of the chronic diseases people are dealing with today, Dr. Wilson is improving the health and brain function of his patients with simple and safe solutions. Listen in as me and Dr. Wilson delve deeply into the role a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet plays in combating CARB syndrome. The Keto Clarity expert interviews keep getting better and better, so tune in next week for even more.

Philly.com Columnist Totally Misrepresents The Low-Carb, Ketogenic Diet

If you follow my work on a regular basis, then you already know that we try to address and respond to the latest health headlines on my Friday podcast called “Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends” featuring my co-host Dietitian Cassie and two guest friends from the low-carb and Paleo communities. So many times we see articles in the mainstream media and want to give our own unique perspective on them since oftentimes the columnist gets it so wrong that the truth deserves a chance to be heard. But when I saw this column on Philly.com written by their Sports Medicine & Fitness Editor named Kelly O’Shea this week, I had to respond on Facebook to all the blatant misinformation she was putting out there about the low-carb, ketogenic diet. But as I was countering all the misinformation in Kelly’s column entitled “Why it’s a bad idea to cut out food groups for weight loss,” I knew I needed to share this with my blog readers to further expose the major flaws in what she shared.

Read the article for yourself and you’ll quickly see what I’m talking about. She’s all over the place in this column making it difficult to know where to begin responding to this one. Let’s look at each of her primary claims about low-carb diets one at a time and my response to them:

CLAIM: Low-carb diets eliminate entire food groups.

Isn’t it funny how people like Kelly make this claim about low-carb diets, but they NEVER say anything like this about low-fat or vegetarian diets? Hmmmm. But I digress. No, all carbs are not removed when you eat this way. Just the cruddy ones like sugar, starch and grains–especially the highly-refined versions of all of these. It’s not a “no-carb” diet as we still enjoy non-starchy and green leafy vegetables, berries, and other such real food-based carbs. They are merely limited to their individual impact on a person’s blood sugar levels. This is why finding your carbohydrate tolerance level is the first step in becoming ketogenic.

CLAIM: Your brain and muscles NEED carbs to function.

If you are fueling your body as a sugar-burner, then she is ABSOLUTELY 100% correct. But when you choose to make the switch over to burning fat and ketones as your primary fuel source, then you don’t need that obligatory 130g of carbs a day to make your brain happy. Instead, you eat a high amount of saturated and monounsaturated fats, moderated amounts of protein to your individual threshold levels, and limited carbs to your personal tolerance to offer your brain all the amazing health effects that come from being in a state of nutritional ketosis. The same goes for the energy in your body–it is fueled quite well on ketones. To claim there is any inherent “need” for carbohydrates is a major error for someone who purports to have expertise in writing about nutrition.

CLAIM: You’re at risk for nutritional deficiencies eating low-carb.

Not if you are consuming healthy low-carb veggies and organ meats in your diet to give you all the micronutrition you’ll need. And what nutrients do whole grains offer that you can’t get in a well-formulated low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet? The crickets are chirping loudly.

CLAIM: Ketosis is an unhealthy metabolic state that leads to a build-up of ketones that lead to headaches, nausea and bad breath.

Hoo boy, oh the nonsense of this one. In a word–NO. If you’ve read my book Keto Clarity then you know what a farce this objection is. Ketosis is a very natural state for the body to be in shifting from burning sugar as the primary fuel source to burning fat as the primary fuel source. There’s nothing “unhealthy” about it and you could argue it’s actually one of the best possible metabolic states you could be in to optimize your health. All of those so-called side effects of ketosis that Kelly blathers on about are a result of failing to drinking enough water and get enough electrolytes back into your diet early on, including salt, potassium and magnesium, which become depleted as your body dumps the excess stored glucose in your body. Getting fully keto-adapted within a few days to several weeks depending on the individual will provide you with incredible energy and mental clarity like you’ve never experienced before. That’s the power of ketosis that these people never seem to grasp.

CLAIM: Don’t do a low-carb diet for more than six months.

Okay, I’ll bite. So if I eat low-carb for six months and get healthier as a result of doing that, then how am I supposed to eat after that to keep the improvements in my weight and health that a low-carb diet gave me? Anyone? I’ll stick with my long-held mantra of “find what works for you and do it for the rest of your life.”

CLAIM: You need to eat 45-65% of your calories from carbohydrates.

Now that would be extremely idiotic for someone like me to do who is metabolically broken from years of poor nutritional choices prior to beginning on a healthy low-carb lifestyle. Limiting my carbohydrate intake to less than 5% of my total calories has given me the most robust health I’ve ever experienced in my entire life, so why would I do that? If I NEED as many carbs as Kelly claims I do, then how am I thriving at significantly lower levels of carbohydrate intake? Why is this question never addressed by those who are opposed to low-carb living? It cuts to the heart of the matter.

CLAIM: Losing weight is all about calories in, calories out.

Ahhhhh, there it is. I wondered when the “c” word was going to come into the picture. That’s what they are holding on to for dear life, but you and I know the hormonal impact of food on our bodies is so much more accurate at determining what diet is right for us. And as long as our insulin and leptin are kept at optimized levels as a result of following a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then I don’t worry about my calories. It’s time to slay the calories dragon and get keto-adapted!

Don’t miss reading the comments to this article that further educate Kelly O’Shea about where she got it wrong on so many levels. And feel free to drop her a tweet about this column to share your thoughts on what she shared and copy in @Phillydotcom requesting a follow-up with accurate information about a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Always refuse to accept this kind of nonsense in the media and stand up for what you know is the truth. The public deserves to hear this message loud and clear.

KETO CLARITY Update: Barnes & Noble Promotion August 12-26, 2014

Since the August 5, 2014 release of my brand new book with Dr. Eric Westman called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet, my life can accurately be described as a glorious chaotic whirlwind adventure. If you’ve sent me an e-mail, I’m still working through all of those as we speak. They tripled in number as soon as the book came out and I’ve been doing my best to keep up with them. I promise to respond to each one as soon as I can. THANK YOU for your patience.

Keto Clarity rose to #76 (WOW!) in ALL books on Amazon.com during the release week and catapulted to the #1 nutritional health book in Australia, Canada, and the United States. While it sold extremely well on Amazon, it just barely missed hitting the BIG weekly “Advice, How-To, & Miscellaneous” category on the New York Times bestsellers list by a hair (I’ve since learned that the first week of sales on Amazon are discounted slightly in consideration for this prestigious distinction and that brick and mortar sales in stores like Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and Costco are weighed heavier by the algorithm used at the New York Times for developing that list). Keto Clarity still has a very good chance of hitting that weekly list and seems destined to hit the monthly “Food and Fitness” category when that one is updated again in the first week of September. I will certainly let you know if and when that happens. THANK YOU guys so much for making this book an overwhelming success so far and the best is still yet to come!

I’m so grateful to each of you who lives near one of the 17 Costco locations carrying Keto Clarity right now as a test market to see if they will bring it in to ALL of their locations across the United States and even Canada. I don’t know how it’s done so far. But if you haven’t gotten your copy of my new book yet and you want to help me out, getting it from one of these Costco locations will be a HUGE help.

Several people have written to me stating they went to their local Barnes & Noble store to get my book only to find out it was not in stock. If you ask the store manager about it and request the book, then they definitely have it in stock at their warehouse. Especially if this book hits the New York Times bestsellers list soon, you’ll see it on store shelves very quickly. I noticed my local Barnes & Noble store in Spartanburg, South Carolina had four copies in stock when I visited there earlier this week.

Speaking of Barnes & Noble, because of the out-of-the-gate success of Keto Clarity, they are currently featuring my book on their New Releases table for their 70 largest stores from August 12-August 26, 2014. What a great opportunity to get the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic message in front of an audience of people who could stand to improve their health with this therapeutic approach. Here’s the full list of the stores participating in this promotion if you live in any of these areas:

Getting your copy of Keto Clarity from a bookstore like this helps me out so much and I’d love to see some photos of the display in your local B&N if you could take a picture of it and/or a selfie with you in it with your smartphone. Send those to me at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. Can’t wait to see it!

Last but not least, I’m still hearing from so many of you wondering where in the world the Audible audiobook for Keto Clarity is. Believe me, I’d LOVE to have it out there for you guys right now and my publisher is working diligently to make that happen sooner than later. But there was another error that Amazon just let us know about this week in the upload that will take a few more days to resolve and then re-upload again. Their process is to get it up within two weeks of the upload. If we get that new file sent to them by early next week, then we’re looking at the audiobook releasing near the beginning of September. I sincerely apologize for the delay in that since I know so many of you are looking forward to listening to the book read by me. It’ll be worth the wait, I promise. Coming soon!

In case you’ve missed any of my recent appearances on a variety of podcasts and radio shows lately, check ‘em all out on my Keto Clarity Media Page. And don’t miss this FREE sample chapter of the Introduction as well as the FREE audiobook sample of Chapter 1 if you want to get a vibe for what the book is like. I’m working with my publisher on more book signing events, so check my LIVE Events Calendar often for new ones being added. I can’t say it enough, but THANKS SO MUCH for supporting my new book and making it a success that goes beyond my wildest expectations. You guys ROCK!

Don’t forget to leave a review of the book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and on iTunes!
