The LLVLC Show (Episode 984): LLVLC Classic – Dr. Travis Einertson Puts His Cat Patients On Catkins Diet

HAVE YOU TRIED THE NEW QUEST PROTEIN POWDERS?

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship

In Episode 984 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have a fabulous interview with a veterinarian with an interest in low-carb nutrition named Dr. Travis Einertson as our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives. In the months of June and July, I’ve been taking some time away from my regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, I’ve been airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today I have an exciting interview with a Rochester, Minnesota-based veterinarian named Dr. Travis Einertson from the Heritage Pet Hospital who is a huge fan of the low-carb lifestyle. As a specialist working with his obese and diabetic feline patients, Dr. Einertson has devised a nutritional plan he describes as the “Catkins” diet that has worked to stunning success in his feline patients! If you’re a pet lover–especially dogs and cats–then you need to listen to this engaging conversation.

“How could we have been so wrong on treating animals with diabetes for all these years.” — Dr. Travis Einertson

Listen in as Dr. Einertson and I discuss why he became a veterinarian, how much nutrition was taught in his training, how he discovered low-carb diets to treat the diabetes in his cat patients, the canned food-based “Catkins” diet he developed that minimizes the need for insulin, how he was vehemently opposed to the Atkins diet previously before his personal success using it, the frustration with most traditional dry cat food products, Binky’s Page for tips with your cats, ways to test your cat’s blood sugar levels (use this video to see how it’s done), how drinking and urination patterns can indicate diabetes in cats, why a fructosamine test is better than A1c in cats, why he thinks water is an important macronutrient, his thoughts on an all-raw diet for cats, how adding in coconut oil can benefit your pets, and whether the “Catkins” diet is being used by his colleagues. If you’re a pet lover, then you’re gonna enjoy this LLVLC Show Classic episode today!

The LLVLC Show (Episode 982): Darryl Edwards Explains The Most Common Paleo Terms From A To Z

WORLD’S 1ST REUSABLE BREATH KETONE ANALYZER

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship

In Episode 982 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have an international speaker, certified personal trainer, nutritional therapist, and bestselling author named Darryl Edwards as our guest today. Whenever you bring up exercise to most people in our modern society, it doesn’t conjure up positive thoughts. But for Darryl Edwards from “The Fitness Explorer” (listen to my previous interview with him in Episode 690), he believes it’s time to put the spirit of fun and play back into movement again. That’s why he has completely transformed his own health and life committing himself to helping people around the world make Primal Play a priority in their health routine. Darryl has a brand new book called Paleo from A to Z: A reference guide to better health through nutrition and lifestyle. How to eat, live and thrive as nature intended that is sure to be a go-to resource to use when listening to health podcasts or seeking to learn more about the most common words and phrases used in the Paleo community.

“I had a very short-term view on my mortality when I thought I only had a few moments left on this planet.” — Darryl Edwards

Listen in as Darryl and I talk about how the “Z” in his book title should be pronounced “zed,” his story to radically changing his health and lifestyle, how his doctor attempted to put him on a bunch of prescription medications for the rest of his life, how Dr. Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet positively influenced him, the importance of 7-7-05 in his life when terrorists attacked London, what his diet looked like when he was an investment banker back in the day, what symptoms he had that showed he was in poor health (TOFI-thin on the outside, but fat on the inside), how he shifted his diet with real food that provided sustenance and health, his pursuit of finding exercise that would be fun that turned into his Primal Play concept, Jimmy’s experience doing Darryl’s movement workshops at PaleoFX, the feeling of being picked last and how nobody should be left behind, the uniqueness of Darryl’s new book, why he wanted to provide un-opinionated “bite-sized responses” to key terms used in Paleo, his upcoming “HEALTH Unplugged” UK Paleo conference in London, England on October 31-November 1, 2015, and his idea for writing a book on traveling hacks.

In Episode 981 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have a raw vegan activist and cyclist named Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone as our special guest today in this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives. In the months of June and July, I’ve been taking some time away from my regular podcast schedule. So on Wednesdays, I’m airing older LLVLC Show Classic episodes that are no longer on iTunes. And today I have audio from someone who is arguably one of the most famous high-carb raw vegan activists on the Internet today. His name is Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone from “30 Bananas A Day” and his famous YouTube channel. What’s interesting is I attempted to get the Adelaide, Australia-based vegan activist on his show about eight times before they were finally able to nail it down. And if you’ve ever seen his YouTube videos, then you know Durianrider has quite the flair for being dramatic, bombastic, and totally in-your-face. That’s what we expected in the interview, but he was actually quite cordial and respectful of our host (unlike what happened with vegan physician Dr. John McDougall).

“If you are vegan and get hungry, then your standards drop. It’s always better to eat more than to undereat so you don’t fall into temptation for the junk.” — Harley “Durianrider” Johnstone


I got to meet Durianrider in Adelaide, Australia in 2014

Listen in as Harley and I discuss the health problems he dealt with growing up, what a high-carb raw vegan diet looks like, why 70-minute daily exercise isn’t enough, why he thinks some people gain weight when they eat carbs, his assertion that there are no low-carb Paleo success stories and his challenge to prove it works, the purpose of his arrogant style in presenting his message, why he believes everyone should be vegan and how to succeed at it, how he prevents hunger on his vegan diet, why he thinks people should be eating at least 30 bananas a day, why he’s no fan of calorie-counting, how ketones play a role in fueling his body on his cycling race days, how he views exercise as the stimulant for eating more food, where we agree the most on the subject of nutrition, why he prefers fruit and fruit juices over any other food, why he doesn’t believe there are ketogenic athletes, why he thinks it’s not a big deal that vegans need to supplement with Vitamin B12, why raw veganism hasn’t caught on as much as he would like and whether it can be sustainable, and whether consuming animal foods is ever appropriate for people to eat. If you missed this one, then brace yourself for one of the most entertaining and controversial interviews I have ever conducted in the history of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” ENJOY!
