As I’m working with my publisher polishing off the final elements of my August 27, 2013 release of Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? it’s gonna be an intense back-and-forth process that will require 100% of my attention all month along. I’ll be sporadic at best with time for blogging for the rest of this month. When that book is completed and ready to be published, then I’ll be back. My goal right now is to return to my regular podcasting schedule beginning again on Monday, June 3, 2013 with brand new interviews and the return of “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” and “Low-Carb Conversations.” Check out the guest hosts and Classic interviews I’ll be sharing with you in the month of May 2013:
Hollywood trainer Vinnie Tortorich and his podcasting sidekick and voice over talent extraordinaire Anna Vocino, co-hosts of the “Angriest Trainer” podcast, are this week’s guest co-hosts for Episode 676 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Vinnie appeared as a guest on this show in Episode 651 earlier this year and both he and Anna have a ton of experience running their own fabulous low-carb/health podcast. Vinnie, aside from being America’s Angriest Personal Trainer, is also a trainer-to-the-stars who has appeared (twice!) on Oprah. His co-host Anna is a successful comedian and actress having appeared on The Office, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Children’s Hospital and multiple episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live! She’s also a highly-sought after vocal talent in video games and commercials. Listen in as this dynamic duo explains why Vinnie’s so angry, and why maybe you should be too!

Listen in as Tony hosts a fabulous episode featuring “The next generation of Paleo” featuring three inspiring guests who are active in the Paleo movement and are all under the age of 25! Stefani Ruper is the voice behind Paleo For Women and has relied on a combination of Paleo living and natural medicine to correct her health. Todd Dosenberry from Primal Toad discovered Paleo via Mark Sisson at the tender age of 21 in 2010 and he’s been living the life ever since. Finally, 17-year old Joshua Weissman from Slim Palate managed to not only lose 100 pounds on a Paleo diet, but to also escape from an adolescence filled with bullying. Listen in as these four share loads of wisdom beyond their years that should make you very proud for the future of this movement in the decades to come.
Milwaukee, WI-based cardiologist and perennial New York Times bestselling author Dr. William Davis is our guest today in this LLVLC Classic in Episode 679 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” We’re super excited to bring you a pair of great interviews with Dr. William Davis long BEFORE he wrote his blockbuster book that he’s now most famous for called Wheat Belly. In case you weren’t a listener way back when these interviews first aired, you may not realize that even before Wheat Belly came on the scene, Dr. Davis was popular enough to be selected as one of the show’s top five guests of the year, returning for our annual “Encore Week” episodes as one of the best of the best from that year. We knew then that Dr. Davis was destined for greatness and it all started right here on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Don’t miss this fantastic LLVLC Classic episode where Dr. Davis reveals his thoughts on cholesterol, heart disease and why he advocates for getting a heart scan as a means for determining your true heart health risks!
Guest co-hosts stand-up comedian Dan French, registered dietitian Amy Kubal and moonshine expert Corben Thomas from The Health And Comedy Show podcast bring their own unique style of podcasting to Episode 680 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Dan French is a fantastically talented stand-up comedian, speaker, writer, and teacher, whose unique career includes being twice nominated for Emmys as a late night comedy writer while also having a Ph.D. in Rhetoric. He lost over 100 pounds on the Paleo diet and now infuses the Paleo message into his comedy routine called “The Comedian’s Diet.” Amy Kubal from “Fuel as Rx” is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian specializing in the Paleo Diet and performance nutrition. She holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition from Colorado State University. Corben Thomas from “Paleo Life 365″ is a “regular Joe” who spent a long time going through just about every major diet plan until he discovered Mark’s Daily Apple and settled into the Paleo lifestyle which he continues to enjoy to this day! Listen in as these three extremely funny folks take us all on a spin through the world of health and fitness with a decidedly skewed (and sometimes whacked out!) perspective. I just happen to be a BIG FAN of their “Health And Comedy Show” podcast and think you will enjoy them too.
Nourishing Traditions author and founder of The Weston A. Price Foundation Sally Fallon is our guest today for this LLVLC Classic in Episode 681 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Sally has had a lifelong interest in the subject of nutrition which began in the early 1970s when she read the book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by a dentist named Dr. Weston A. Price. That book was so eye-opening for her that she eventually created a foundation based on the work that he did and even wrote a fabulous bestselling book about the traditional food principles in Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats. These days Sally and The Weston A. Price Foundation advocate for eating (and in some cases legalizing) healthy, natural foods and she is one of the leading voices in the real food movement that is going strong today. Listen in to this LLVLC Classic interview where Jimmy and Sally take on topics as diverse as real raw milk, prison food, animals killed in the raising of grains and vegetables and so much more!
Triathlete and host of the Ben Greenfield Fitness podcast Ben Greenfield is joined by his Canadian sidekick Brock Skywalker as our special guest hosts in today’s episode of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore! Ben Greenfield is considered by some to be the Internet’s premier free source of information on exercise, nutrition, weight loss, triathlons and wellness. Today he and his “Ben Greenfield Fitness” podcast sidekick Brock Skywalker have been kind enough to fill in while I’m resting up from the recent Low-Carb Cruise, shipping off a my book to his publisher and preparing to return to podcasting at the beginning of June! Ben is taking calls from listeners in this episode and has some highly controversial things to say about very low-carb diets that induce ketosis. In light of my phenomenal results from my one-year nutritional ketosis experiment, this ought to be interesting. Also, you won’t want to miss hearing when Ben sets his apartment ablaze mid-show–see if you can find when! There’s a lot to this episode, so don’t you miss a single second.
Physician and low-carb diabetes advocate Dr. Richard Bernstein is our guest today for this LLVLC Classic Episode 681 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” In this repeat of one of our all-time favorite interview guests, the great Dr. Richard Bernstein discusses the struggles he’s gone through to overcome inertia and avarice on the part of the American Diabetes Association, drug manufacturers and many others in the status quo who maintain that diabetics should not even attempt to regulate their blood sugar through diet and merely rely on drug therapy as their sole means for controlling their disease. Dr. Bernstein thinks that is nonsense as you will hear him passionately share with Jimmy in this pair of LLVLC Classic interviews. He is the author of a fantastic book that should be a part of every low-carb library called Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution: The Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars and we cannot recommend it highly enough to those dealing with some form of blood sugar health issue. Some of what you will hear will be shocking to say the least, but Dr. Bernstein remains cautiously optimistic about the future prospects of low-carb diabetes care. If you or someone you know has diabetes, then you can learn a lot from this man who has lived with Type 1 diabetes for over six decades and counting.
Guest host Clark Danger from The Paleohacks Podcast interviews Paleo intermittent fasting advocate Brad Pilon in today’s episode of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore! Clark is a 21-year old college student in Seattle, Washington, but he has crammed a lot of living into those 21 years! In addition to his studies, he is also a drummer, a volunteer for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization, the fabulous host of the new “Paleohacks Podcast” as well as a fitness blogger at ClarkDanger.com. Long-time listeners of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” will remember I interviewed IF specialist Brad Pilon in Episode 596, but Clark brings his own unique perspective in his interview. Brad is the author of Eat Stop Eat and The Zen Of Nutrition and is a former Research & Development Manager at one of the world’s foremost nutritional supplement manufacturers. He is a keen advocate of intermittent fasting, but has a broad interest in the science of nutrition as you will hear in this special guest hosting podcast interview he did with Clark Danger!
Nutritional Psychologist and author Julia Ross is our guest today for this LLVLC Classic Episode 685 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” In today’s final LLVLC Classic episode before I return next week, we share a couple of fantastic interviews he did with Julia Ross, nutritional psychologist, eating disorder specialist and the author of The Diet Cure and The Mood Cure. Julia believes that by following the advice in her books or by consulting with her at her practice, virtually anyone can overcome carbohydrate addiction in just a matter of days with a simple dietary intervention. Listen in and enjoy one of our favorite “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” interview guests of all-time!
I return to podcasting again on Monday, June 3, 2013
