Low-Carb Conversations (Episode 38): Ash Sierra & Whitney Ross On High-Fat Research & UK Fat-Cutting Campaign


NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 38 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” my co-host Mindy Noxon Iannotti and I have yet another fun-filled chit-chat session with two more of our awesome friends in the low-carb/Paleo community. Paleo and yogilicious blogger Ash Sierra from the “PALE(y)Ogini” blog and MS overcomer Whitney Ross from the “Nutrisclerosis” blog help us rock the podcast today with some nutritional bombs in response to several recent health headlines making news. Listen to us discuss a study that claims eating a high-fat diet leads to brain injury (and what one of the study authors Stephan Guyenet had to say about this portrayal of his research) as well as a new campaign in the UK called “Change4Life” dedicated to promoting ways to cut the fat out of your diet. Uhhhh, no thanks! Plus we’ll have our favorite part of the show where we share some delicious, mouthwatering low-carb recipes and more fun than you can shake a stick at. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about it on the Virtual Porch where we have a gabfest about all things low-carb! Join in on the conversation with us.
