In Episode 66 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” we’re back refreshed and ready to take on the new year today with our first new episode of 2013! My lovely co-host Dietitian Cassie and I are back in our rightful place jibber-jabbering with our Paleo and low-carb online friends about the various health headlines of the day. We’re all about sharing opinions here and you’ll get a healthy dose of ’em in this podcast!

THANK YOU for your support!

We’re rip-roaring ready to go with an engaging hour-long conversation for you today as Cassie and I welcome two more of our wonderful health blogging friends Todd Dosenberry from the “Primal Toad” blog and Kaila Prins from the “In My Skinny Jeans” blog. Listen in to hear us talk about a study claiming eating red meat will shave a half-hour off of your life and taking a statin drug will add it back, another study claiming the secret to weight loss really is all about cutting your fat intake, coming to a store near you–FRANKENFISH, a new study showing how statin drugs lead to MORE atherosclerosis, research demonstrating that overweight teens actually eat less calories than their thinner counterparts, why it’s tricky to try to label what “junk food” is, an Australian journalist’s journey to giving up sugar and why it’s important to keep your nutritional choices from becoming like a religion. And we’ve got two fabulous low-carb recipes to share with you from Todd (a coconut egg nog smoothie recipe) and Kaila (yummy Brussels sprouts) at the end of today’s show, so don’t you miss it! Now, you know what to do–pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

  • Just Lowering Fat Intake Can Shed Pounds, Study Finds
  • Who is sponsoring these studies saying this stuff?

  • Who decides what is junk food and what is not
  • Dietitians all have different ways of helping clients
  • Society can’t come to an agreement what “junk” means
  • Sweet nothings
  • Most culprit calories and carbs come from sugar
  • The day in the first week of going sugar-free is pretty funny
  • It takes a lot more than a week to become “sugar sober”
