Remembering Kevin Moore

‘Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show’ Episode 363: Get ‘The Paleolithic Solution’ With Fitness And Health Expert Robb Wolf

Paleolithic eating has come on strong in the past year as evidenced by my recent blog survey showing one in five of my readers follow the Paleo/primal lifestyle change. Thanks to the leadership of people like Dr. Loren Cordain, Art DeVany, Richard Nikoley, Mark Sisson, Nora Gedgaudas, Dr. Kurt Harris and others, the Paleo/primal movement is alive and thriving in 2010. But more than anyone else in the nearly four-year history of my podcast show, none has been requested more than today’s podcast guest!

In Episode 363 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” at long last we are thrilled to welcome fitness and Paleolithic health expert Robb Wolf. Robb has quickly built a reputation as the go-to person for all things Paleo and fitness and shares his amazing wisdom each week on his highly-popular The Paleolithic Solution podcast. He’s in the middle of writing his much-anticipated The Paleolithic Solution set to release in the Fall 2010, but he was gracious enough to give me a full one-hour interview chock full of some incredible low-carb Paleo treats!

Listen to Robb Wolf tell us about his athletic background growing up, how he experienced a significant decline in his health in his mid-20s when he was eating a high-carb, low-fat, vegetarian diet, his mother’s Celiac disease diagnosis got him to thinking about Paleolithic eating, how Google led him to Dr. Cordain and Art DeVany, why he ultimately chose to become an evangelist for the Paleo diet, the sudden rise of Paleo in the low-carb community, his “metabolic derangement” terminology, why he has a problem with The Zone diet, why he believes low-carb is an essential part of a Paleolithic diet, why the creation of his podcast in 2009 was borne out of a desire to lessen his e-mail overload, his upcoming book and how it will be different from all the other Paleo/primal books out there, the influence of Gary Taubes on his work, why intermittent fasting may not be for everyone, his thoughts on saturated fat in a Paleo diet, the role of palmitic acid on leptin and insulin sensitivity, and his thoughts on dairy, nuts and seeds as part of a Paleo diet.

    Thanks, Jimmy, for another really good guest interview.

    It was interesting to hear about Robb’s experience with the results of vegetarianism, which I had not heard before now. I’m sure many of us can relate to his experience.

    Once again, I heard him mention his opinion about palmitic acid, so I did a search at Stephen’s Wholehealthsource blog to see what he has said on the topic.
    Bottom line, there may be room for another view of palmitic acid, since the liver manufactures it in order to maintain blood sugar in the absence of carbohydrate intake. If it wasn’t useful for continuation of the species, I doubt that the process would have been preserved.

    Robb is the best- he is on my iPod and I always need to replay his pcasts several times so I don’t miss a single word. He explains not just barks like other paleo types. He is the real deal.

    • And he’s real. No pretense with Robb Wolf. What you see is what you get.
