39 New Paleo, Low-Carb & Health Blogs For November 2012

As I’m typing this blog post for you today, I’m doing it in Franklin, Tennessee in the early hours of the day sitting on the couch of my buddy Tom Naughton from the “FAT HEAD” blog. Christine and I are taking this week away to enjoy some good times and fellowship with Tom and his lovely wife Chareva along with their two gorgeous little girls. We consider the Naughtons our family and just enjoy hanging out together, talking about “stuff” (believe it or not, it’s NOT all about nutrition!) and taking it a few games of friendly competition of disc golf, aka frisbee golf, on his family farm he purchased last year.

When we came for a visit back in early July, Tom introduced this game to me and I immediately became hooked (obsessed!). I wasn’t very good in the week I was here when the temperatures were a scorching 100+ degrees every single day, although my learning curve was probably a lot quicker than Tom expected. By the final day of my visit, I was actually able to TIE Master Naughton and resolved at that very moment to come back again and kick his hiney upon my return this week. Here’s a video that Tom posted on YouTube of our first “FAT HEAD Open” in July:

So we’ll be getting in lots of rounds of disc golf in the coming days and will post a video of how things went in the space below (wanna take odds on who’s gonna win–Jimmy or Tom?):

Get updates on how the games are going in this blog post.

Tom noted my weight loss since he saw me last. Back in July, I think I had lost about 25 pounds at that point. I’m down a little more than that now. The end of this week will be the conclusion of another 30-day cycle in my n=1 experiment of nutritional ketosis. Read my latest update of Day 121-150 if you haven’t been following along with what I’ve been doing. This has been such a phenomenal experience for me (and more than just the weight loss) and I look forward to sharing more of what I’ve learned in my next blog post after I return home to South Carolina late this weekend.

Next Monday, Christine and I will be traveling just about an hour or so up the road to the Concord, NC-based Vitality Medical Wellness Institute to see former podcast guests Dr. Jeffrey Galvin and Jesse Stillwell. After my inspiring interview with them in Episode 604 back in August, Dr. Galvin offered to run a DEXA scan on me to see how this nutritional ketosis experiment I was conducting was actually working to change my body composition for the better by reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle. I really wish I had done this BEFORE I started the experiment, but oh well. My first scan was back on September 13th where I got a baseline of sorts for where I stood with my DEXA. Dr. Galvin invited me to come back two months later on November 13th to see what changes have happened to the DEXA. I’m getting those results by Monday afternoon and if I can squeeze in time to write about them before my big trip I will.

But you may have already heard that I’m preparing for one of the most exciting adventures of my entire life–A 3-WEEK TREK ACROSS EASTERN AUSTRALIA! After we returned from the Low-Carb Cruise this year where several Aussies joined us for the fun and festivities (SIGN UP NOW for the 2013 event featuring Robb Wolf, Dr. Mary Vernon, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, Tom Naughton, this dude named Jimmy Moore and many more which is selling out quickly!), a couple of them contacted me about coming to their country to do a speaking tour they’ve dubbed “Low Carb Down Under.” Rod Tayler and Jamie Hayes are the convenors of this 5-city event that has sold hundreds of tickets so far. Since they are 14 hours ahead of us, it will be interesting getting acclimated to the difference when our flight arrives in Melbourne at 9:00AM local time next Thursday (that’ll be 7:00PM body clock time the night before–EEEK!). We are super-stoked about this and cannot wait to connect with all of our amazing low-carb, Paleo and primal friends. There’s still room for YOU if you’re interested in being a part of this historic gathering of the best of the best nutritional minds in the land of Oz. Here’s a flyer about the event for you to learn more about it:

As you can see, I’m going to be quite busy for me over this next month. But busy is good (keeps me out of trouble!). I will still be providing regular updates on what’s happening in my world along with periodic sharing of health headlines that interest me on both my Twitter and Facebook pages. I’d love to have you follow me on Twitter or “Like” my FB fan page if you’re so inclined. As I like to do when I will be away for a period of time, I want to share a list of 39 incredible new Paleo, low-carb and health blogs you probably need to know about if you are interested in living an optimally healthy lifestyle. If you like what you see at any of these blogs, then don’t hesitate to leave them a nice comment, write an e-mail to the blog author, and bookmark their blog to visit again soon. In case you missed any of my previous blog listings, I’ve got them all listed for you here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

    Looking forward to seeing you in Sydney Jimmy! My family and I are flying over for the weekend to hear you and the other guests speak. We’ll see you in Adelaide a few days later too.

    • LLVLCBlog

      Can’t wait to see you, Claire!

    Hey I stumbled across this blog while googling carbohydrate addiction. It led me to an article you wrote about Jessica Biel. In the article you recommend increasing fat intake:

    “consume plenty of healthy fats naturally found in cuts of beef and fish, butter, coconut oil, full-fat cheese, cream”

    How should one do this if dairy is a problem for their system? I can’t take dairy, no butter, cheese or cream. So should I just enjoy lots of meat and coconut oil? Thanks in advance.

    • LLVLCBlog

      Definitely coconut foods, fish, almonds, macadamia nut products, full fat meats.
