In Episode 409 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Evelyn Parham, a mostly raw foods vegan blogger who is putting herself out there providing information about diet and health. I went to high school and college with Evelyn and knew her long before I was active in the low-carb world and ages before she went vegan/vegetarian. We took different paths to health and both of us are now committed to providing information to our respective audiences. Listen to Evelyn talk about why she chose the raw foods vegan path to health, the elimination diet she pursued to help with some female issues she was dealing with, why she isn’t hung up on being a purist vegan where she never has meat, how she listens to her body and admits that it’s hard to get the proper amount of fat and protein from a raw foods vegan diet, her weight loss experience on a vegan diet, the fibroid tumors she was dealing with that required her to make dietary changes (removing the dairy and red meat), the role of sugar in her diet, her experiment with going 100% raw vegan for a period of time, why she doesn’t know her lipid panel and other key blood work, the gestational diabetes she dealt with during her pregnancy, why she started a blog to become a guru about a plant-based diet, why she isn’t monopolistic in her thinking about health, why she believes meat isn’t necessarily the best choice for your health, the physical response to trying a meatless diet, why consuming starchy carbs can make you constipated, her health-related YouTube videos, how she befriended a low-carb blogger named Michelle, why she is about helping people find their path to health even if it’s not vegan, her exposure to the work of Dr. Weston A. Price, and her once-in-a-while podcast show.
