It’s been a true privilege to bring you this podcast and we are incredibly grateful for all of your wonderful love and support for us. THANK YOU for keeping the message of the healthy low-carb lifestyle alive!

Today we have Keri Rogers from the “Yogi Wellness Journey” blog and Jolene Park from the “Healthy Discoveries” blog here with us to talk about several interesting health headlines, including that recent insane egg yolks are as bad as cigarettes study, two new “fair-inspired” Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the latest 2012 obesity rates from the Centers For Disease Control (it’s not a pretty picture!), new obesity education initiatives for kids (focused on low-fat diets), running a marathon in a keto-adapted state eating fat instead of carb-loading and local advocacy for animal foods. We have some great opinion-makers with us today in Keri, Jolene, Mindy and I talking about these topics along with some super yummy low-carb recipes at the end. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about it!

Listen to Keri Rogers and Jolene Park give their take on the health headlines:

  • My latest update on my n=1 of nutritional ketosis
  • It’s amazing how keenly interested people are in my experiment
  • Don’t try to mimic what I’m doing because you may not get same results
  • A special THANK YOU to all of our listeners who have given us donations
  • Keri lives in the town over from me in Greenville, South Carolina
  • She’s a yoga enthusiast, nutritionist and wellness educator
  • In high school she dealt with a lot of eating disorders, craved carbs
  • In her 20’s, she “broke that habit” and looked into nutrition and yoga
  • When she wanted to be a dietitian, she didn’t like the low-fat bent
  • Her carbohydrate cravings came back last year and learned more about low-carb
  • It’s admirable for those dietitians who “stomach” the nutrition education
  • Her clients are responding well to the low-carb and yoga therapies
  • Listen to Jolene Park in Episode 387 of The LLVLC Show podcast
  • Jolene grew up on a farm in Colorado and was around whole food as the norm
  • They had “a lot of home-cooked meals” and become interested in nutrition
  • The binge-eating as an emotional response during college
  • In her 20s, she attended nutrition conferences and wanted to study nutrition
  • She got her nutrition certification and got a communications degree too
  • The exposure she had to the work of Paleo legend Dr. Loren Cordain
  • Dr. Mike Eades and Dr. Jonny Bowden helped her understand the low-carb diet
  • Low-carb from then on had been the foundation of her education
  • Paleo/low-carb is solid, “the science is there” for people to embrace
  • She now does on-site corporate wellness classes at big companies
  • She uses “whole foods” instead of Paleo or low-carb because of stigma
  • Online she uses Paleo and low-carb quite abundantly in her writings
  • She’s been weight stable for most of her adult life eating gluten-free
  • When she eats sugar and starch she feels “puffy” and unhealthy
  • Employers now offering incentives to employees to get fit and healthy
  • The bottom line and productivity of employees is impacted by health
  • When she first started her classes, it was looked at as a “luxury”
  • Nowadays, it’s not a luxury but something they “have to do it”
  • Egg Yolk Consumption Almost as Bad as Smoking When It Comes to Atherosclerosis, Study Suggests
  • There was an “insane” amount of coverage of this study in the mainstream
  • This is “just a headline to scare people” and Mindy is “sick of these”
  • It’s an observational study that is “unfortunate” with correlations
  • People “don’t know what to do” because of headlines like this one
  • Can we just stop demonizing whole foods like eggs? Worry about crap food
  • They were concerned about consuming three eggs a week–I eat 3+ per day!
  • Are they talking about Egg McMuffins or pastured eggs cooked in coconut oil?
  • The study was about self-reporting what they ate and it’s hard to remember
  • Egg yolk consumption, carotid plaque & bad science by Zoe Harcombe
  • People don’t look to see if the study is well designed
  • What else were the people eating along with the eggs (carbs anyone?)
  • The people who were eating more eggs actually had the lowest cholesterol
  • They blamed the egg yolks and not the egg whites
  • What the heck is “egg yolk years” anyway?
  • Eating Egg Yolks as Bad as Smoking? by Bill Barrington
  • Krispy Kreme Introduces Fair-Inspired Doughnuts
  • Cotton Candy and Caramel Apple-flavored doughnuts coming August 30th
  • What are in the Oreos, Slurpees and doughnuts? Nobody ever knows!
  • It just sounds “disgusting” having doughnuts like these
  • Jolene Googled the ingredients list and couldn’t find what’s in it
  • I’d love to see the chemical listing of what’s in these doughnuts
  • I used to think this was food and could throw down on something like this
  • Mindy said if she craves a doughnut, it’s certainly not gonna be blue!
  • Krispy Kreme is also making some fair-inspired drinks as well
  • Mississippi has highest obesity rate; Colorado has lowest
  • Colorado has been the best for many years, but it’s still not a good trend
  • There’s so much room for improvement but we need the right answers given out
  • We are seemingly oblivious to why we’ve gotten into this mess to begin with
  • Do the worsening obesity statistics give us an “in” to sharing low-carb?
  • The article doesn’t ever really say why obesity is what it is
  • There are no answers given and it’s simply posing the question
  • They’re leaving it to the so-called health “experts” to interpret this
  • Latest Adult Obesity Facts from the Centers For Disease Control
  • AMA supports requiring obesity education for kids
  • This sounds like a really good idea, but AMA is all about low-fat, high-carb
  • They would encourage doctors to volunteer their time to teach school kids
  • But most doctors don’t know much at all about nutrition for adults or kids
  • At the end of the day, is this really gonna help? Not likely
  • Keri working with esteemed Greenville, SC public school on healthy eating
  • These nutritional education efforts will be a part of the math class
  • There’s a huge need to have more quality nutrition taught in schools
  • But the dietitians talk about whole grains and low-fat diets–UGH!
  • Education and awareness can solve this issue but it has to be correct info
  • There are grassroots efforts already in place to educate properly
  • Check out Chef Ann Cooper: Renegade Lunch Lady
  • Cooper is “making great strides” in Boulder, Colorado in public schools
  • Teaching kids to learn how to cook food from scratch with real foods
  • It doesn’t do any good to teach about nutrition if school lunches are crappy
  • Be aware that 1st-12th graders are going to be taught about nutrition by AMA
  • Parents need to be targeted with this information to reinforce at home
  • It would be great at lower-income schools to learn better shopping habits
  • Running a Marathon? Load Up on Fat
  • Carb-loading only makes you “more and more and more hungry”
  • Hunger is “just a distraction” when you’re trying to exercise
  • Doing yoga when you’re hungry is probably not a good idea
  • Most people think carbs are the only source of energy, but how about fat?
  • It’s a fun discovery for people when they realize fat is fuel
  • Fat can reduce inflammation in the body which is great for runners
  • It makes sense to fuel your running on fat when you’re fat-adapted
  • Watch Dr. Jeff Volek’s 2012 Low-Carb Cruise Lecture
  • It’s great to see fat-adaptation for performance is getting in the mainstream
  • This could get people to read The Art & Science Of Low-Carb Performance
  • Local experts advocate for meat-based proteins
  • To be scared of animal-based fats is a travesty
  • It’s interesting that fat is being vindicated and carbs are the real culprit
  • Dr. Robert Lustig’s appearance on CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes” on sugar dangers
  • There are “glimmers of light” that shine through showing low-carb is awesome
  • Keri’s Homemade Grass-fed Ginger Beef Jerky
  • How she discovered this recipe by accident while teaching a yoga class

    • Ken and I went out early to cycle this morning. No breakfast, just coffee with heavy cream. We biked for 75 miles before deciding to stop for brunch along the trail, even though neither of us felt hungry or lacking energy. We just thought it would be nice to rest our backsides and replenish our water supply, so we had steak and eggs with extra salt and butter. Then we finished our ride – I completed 100 miles (my first “century). The amazing thing is how strong and energetic we felt and although the food was great, we really didn’t “need it.” The previous day, I had my usual egg yolks and salt pork for breakfast, worked a long day coaching singers, then went out to dinner at 7:30 (we actually rarely eat out, so two days in a row is unusual). We ate at a locavore, “natural foods” restaurant that actually was featuring real foie gras – which I had with a cheese board of high fat cheeses. I didn’t have my usual veggies yesterday, but apparently what I ate fueled me for 75 miles today! I defy any carbo-loaders to be able to do what we did today – especially since Ken is 70 and I am 59!
