Remembering Kevin Moore

Jimmy Moore’s Guest Podcast Schedule – Week Of March 18, 2013

I’m super-excited about heading down to Austin, Texas next week for the sophomore edition of PaleoFX featuring so many of my fellow low-carb and Paleo friends like Robb Wolf, Mat Lalonde, Sarah Fragoso, Nora Gedgaudas, Chris Kresser, Diane Sanfilippo, Sean Croxton, Dr. Cate Shanahan, Abel James, Dr. Emily Deans, Roger Dickerman, Charles & Julie Mayfield, Dr. Colin Champ, Dan Pardi, Amy Kubal, Dr. Lauren Noel, Diana Rodgers, Karen Pendergrass, George Bryant, Tony Federico, Stefani Ruper, Stacy Toth, the incredible PaleoFX organizers Keith and Michelle Norris and so many more. See the full speaker list here, the schedule of topics that will be addressed and the fitness workshops that will be available to the people attending. I’ll be moderating three panels and a speaker on two other panels (one of which will be talking about the benefits of being on a ketogenic diet). If you still haven’t signed up to go, then you can REGISTER NOW or enter to win a full access pass to PaleoFX from FastPaleo.com here.

As if writing a book isn’t challenging enough right now, I’ve decided to do another one-week fasting experiment all this week to see how I do in a fully keto-adapted state as part of my nutritional ketosis n=1 experiment. I started at 7PM on Saturday night and hope to make it a full week to this Saturday night. When I did this a couple of years ago it was a challenge since I was simply eating low-carb and not necessarily being in a state of ketosis (my NK testing has shown there is a BIG difference). As I’m writing this, I’m coming up on 48 hours without any food at all. Interestingly, my hunger has been very well-controlled although I am finally starting to feel that gnawing in my stomach. I’m testing my blood sugar, blood ketones and weight every hour on the waking hour all week long and will publish those results for you soon. If at any point my blood sugar dips too low, I’ll end the experiment immediately. So far, the lowest my blood sugar has gone is 70 and I felt completely fine. Blood ketones levels are predictably rising the longer I fast and I fully expect them to go up over 5.0 millimolar before this week is over. It will be another fascinating bit of data to share about my NK journey. Stay tuned!

It’s another fantastic week of podcasting for you to enjoy this week! As usual on Mondays while I’ve been away writing my book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?, I’ve got a special guest host for my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast featuring the hosting debut of Tom Naughton who does an outstanding job along with his family sharing how he and his wife Chareva feed their two beautiful little girls. On Wednesday we’ll have another great LLVLC Show Classic episode and then “Low-Carb Conversations” on Friday. ENJOY another fabulous week of low-carb podcasting!

MARCH 20, 2013: Listen to LLVLC Classic Episode 665 With Dr. Keith Berkowitz

New York City-based physician Dr. Keith Berkowitz from the Center For Balanced Health is our guest today in this LLVLC Classic interview in Episode 665 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.” Back in 2008, I was dealing with a strange phenomena seeing my blood sugar levels DROP after eating a low-carb meal. After I started blogging about this issue, soon thereafter I was contacted by Dr. Berkowitz who used to work in the complementary medical clinic run by the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins. Dr. Berkowitz informed me that this was a condition known as reactive hypoglycemia and is an inconvenient issue that some people on a low-carb diet have to deal with. It was such an intriguing issue that I invited Dr. Berkowitz on my podcast. The response to that episode was so overwhelming that Dr. Berkowitz came back on again to answer listener questions on this topic. And now for the first time, you’ll get to hear those interviews all in one episode. Listen in as Dr. Berkowitz and I speak extensively on every angle of the topic of reactive hypoglycemia. Don’t miss this very special LLVLC Classic episode on a topic that is still relevant for today’s low-carbers.

    Jimmy, out of curiosity, are you still exercising during this fast?

    • LLVLCBlog

      No, not this time. I tried that last time and it made it a lot more difficult.

      • bjjcaveman

        what made it difficult? did it just get you too tired? or was it the lightheadedness?

        • LLVLCBlog

          I missed my post-workout meal. Felt it too.

  • Kelly Schumann

    Do you worry about your ketones going too high? And what would be too high?
    I’ve been letting my hunger be my guide but today the ketones are 4.2. Not sure what is too high.
    Love all of your experiments! Does this one have a goal or is it to just see what happens?

    • LLVLCBlog

      Great question Kelly. No, I’m not worried at all. When I was in my first 6 months of doing this, I regularly saw readings of 4-5 with a high of 6.4. Type 1 diabetics need to be concerned when blood ketones go above 10.0 millimolar. My ketones have predictably risen while doing this and I’m keeping a close eye on them and my blood sugar throughout this process. My goal? I want to see how we’ll I can do in an extended fast. So far, so good.

    • Nick Mailer

      If you are not a type one diabetic, there is a ceiling above which your ketones won’t go. This is because your body produces a small squirt of insulin which slows and then stops the production before your blood becomes acidotic. The reason type 1 people have a problem is that their pancreas cannot produce insulin, so this moderating influence never comes into play.

  • I loved this guest podcast with Tom Naughton! Tom is always so entertaining. Great info for me and my kids, too.

    • LLVLCBlog

      Tom is a PRO!
