LCC (Episode 65): Kelly McCausey And Lynn Terry Discuss Why Diabetics Probably Shouldn’t Eat Beans


CLICK HERE to donate and keep this show going! THANK YOU for your support!

In Episode 65 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” we present to you our final show of 2012 as I take the next two months off from podcasting. But before we go on sabbatical, my co-host Dietitian Cassie and I along with our two guest friends chime in with more opinions on the latest and greatest health headlines to give their unique low-carb perspective on them. After today we’ll be gone until January 2013, but we will come back refreshed and ready to roll again in the new year with many more new low-carb and Paleo bloggers. We are a LISTENER-SUPPORTED podcast and appreciate all the fantastic donations that so many of you have provided us. If you enjoy what you hear on “Low-Carb Conversations” and want to help us out, then you can make a donation to keep us on the air over the next year.

We’re loaded with an awesome hour-long conversation for you today as me and Dietitian Cassie welcome two fellow low-carb podcasters with opinions to spare. They are Kelly McCausey from the “Low Carb Mom” blog and Lynn Terry from the “Traveling Low Carb” blog who are the co-hosts of a brand new podcast called the “90 Day Low Carb Challenge.” Listen in as we talk about some dubious “signs” you’ll live to be 100 years old, vegan Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s nonsensical nutritional advice for being healthy, whether beans are a good option for controlling diabetes, how new research shows moderate weight loss does very little to lower heart disease risk in people with diabetes, whether heavy statin drug use can actually lead to greater vascular calcification and whether obsessing over your exercise routine is doing more harm than good. Plus, don’t miss the recipe time at the end of today’s episode. It’s our final episode of the year and we invite you to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

Listen to Kelly McCausey and Lynn Terry share their experiences:

  • I found a headline that I couldn’t wait until 2013 to share
  • German doctors remove 28-kg tumour from woman
  • A 62-pound tumor that doctors thought was obesity
  • They thought she wasn’t eating less, exercising more
  • Removing the tumor made her normal weight instantly
  • This 60-year old woman has to be ticked off about this
  • Some people have bodies that aren’t cooperating with them
  • The low-fat, exercise-until-you-drop advice that stinks
