The LLVLC Show (Episode 735): Monica Fernandez Taking Paleo To Spanish-Speaking World

TENDERGRASS FARMS GRASS-FED/PASTURED MEATS:

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

In Episode 735 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we’ve got a great show for you featuring a physics PhD and Spanish Paleo blogger named Monica Fernandez. You know, we’ve become a bit spoiled in the Paleo and low-carb communities in recent years as more and more resources have become available for us to learn from and and expand our knowledge about these healthy lifestyle changes. But have you stopped to think about the people who don’t speak English as their first language? While there are some, the significant void of an extensive amount of books, blogs and other sources of quality information about primal, Paleo, Weston A. Price, low-carb, real food diets in the Spanish language presents a genuine challenge in reaching those in the Spanish-speaking world. This didn’t sit too well with a PhD in Physics named Monica Fernandez who became exposed to the Weston A. Price Foundation, Paleo and low-carb message when she worked in the United States for the past few years.

But when Monica returned to her home country of Spain, she has been doing her part to bridge the gap between all the great nutritional health information she learned in English and translating it into Spanish on her “Blog Disidente” blog. Listen to me and Monica talk about how she began questioning her doctors after watching her cholesterol levels rise while eating a low-fat diet, the side effects she experienced taking medications to deal with her Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), how a high-fat diet that eliminated grains and sugars healed her body, the work she did while she was living in the United States, some of her personal Paleo, low-carb, real food heroes, why she feels so passionate about bringing the Paleo message to the Spanish-speaking world, her equal passion for bringing non-toxic farming practices to the agricultural community (through Regenerative Agriculture), who her dream interviews would be, the kind of response she has seen so far to her translated information, and much, MUCH more!

Here are some great Spanish-speaking Paleo, real food blogs:

  • “La Mierda De Vaca” (Cow Poop!)
  • “Eva Muerde La Manzana”
  • “Salud Rebelde”
  • “Cocina Y Palabra”
  • “Fitness Revolucionario”
  • “Escucha Tu Cuerpo”
  • “Estilo Paleo”
  • “Esto No Es Comida”
  • “Hoy Comemos Juntos”
  • “Paleolítico en Londres”

    The LLVLC Show (Episode 734): Maria Emmerich Teaching The Art Of Healthy Low-Carb, High-Fat Cooking

    TENDERGRASS FARMS GRASS-FED/PASTURED MEATS:

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

    In Episode 734 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we’ve got a nutritional wellness expert and low-carb, high-fat cookbook author named Maria Emmerich joining us for a great show! There’s been an increased interest in low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diets in recent years as the science continues to demonstrate great health benefits from being in a state of nutritional ketosis. This has sparked a growing interest from so many who are trying this way of eating to have recipes that are both delicious and easy that fit within this template. That’s something that Maria Emmerich from the “Maria Mind Body Health” blog (listen to my interviews with her in Episode 376 and “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” Episode 16) specializes in doing and she does it very well. In fact, she has a brand new book in 2013 that is perfect for low-carb, high-fat followers called The Art of Healthy Eating: Grain Free Low Carb Reinvented: Slow Cooker. Listen in as me and Maria talk about how far too many people look at low-carb as simply a means for weight loss, all the health improvements that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet, why attempting to do a low-carb diet on your own leads to common problems (i.e. too much protein, not enough salt, magnesium and protein), what makes people quit low-carb prematurely, and more! Maria is a great friend of the show and we are happy to have her back again today for another interview.

    7 Reasons Low-Carbers Should Avoid The Atkins Chocolate Peanut Candies

    Sometimes it is hard to believe how long it has been since I started on my personal nutritional journey to better health that quite literally saved me from the ravages of morbid obesity and chronic health issues that would have no doubt led to my early demise. But in just over a couple of months from now, I’ll celebrate the 10-year anniversary of starting on the Atkins diet that began back on January 1, 2004. The shifts in thinking I have experienced in regards to food, nutrition, and healthy eating over the past decade have been monumental as I continually strive to get better and better in the choices I make about what I put in my body. It’s never been about perfection, but pursuit of what works best for me to manage both my weight and my health.

    It all started with an awareness of the importance of controlling refined carbohydrates in the form of sugar and white flour after reading Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution that my dear mother-in-law bought me for Christmas in 2003 (I was a bit insulted at the time, but now I’m VERY grateful for this fortuitous gift). I didn’t get to weigh 410 pounds and on three prescription medications at the age of 32 for nothing. So getting my carb intake dialed in to my personal tolerance level was the logical first step.

    But it didn’t stop there. Thanks to the great work of people like Dr. William Davis and his sensational runaway New York Times bestselling book Wheat Belly, I quickly realized it’s not just the refined carbohydrates causing harm. There are major problems with modern-day grains and especially wheat that are directly related to raising insulin levels. This leads to increases in body fat and inflammation levels taking you down the road to diabetes, heart disease and worse.

    Turning to the subject of fats, gaining an understanding of the problems with vegetable (seed) oils as explained in books like Toxic Oil by Australian consumer health advocate David Gillespie helped educate me on the right kinds of fats to include on a healthy low-carb lifestyle (and many low-carbers are consuming these in “legal” products such as mayonnaise and salad dressings that are generally LOADED with inferior soybean oil). And speaking of fat, it was Jennifer McLagan‘s book Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient that began to shape and mold my thinking in the direction of consuming MORE of the right kind of fats in my diet to optimize my health.

    Then after I read The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance by esteemed low-carb researchers Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek last year that sparked my very successful nutritional ketosis n=1 experiment, I finally understood just how important it is to consume adequate amounts of the right kind of fats (saturated and monounsaturated) in conjunction with carbohydrate intake to my personal tolerance as well as finding my protein threshold to stave off gluconeogenesis. It’s been layered learning on all of this as I’ve added on fresh new knowledge year after year of eating this way.

    Of course, I’d be completely remiss if I didn’t give a HUGE shout-out to my multitude of amazing friends in the Paleo community for helping those of us in the low-carb community put the focus back on food quality and eating real, whole foods as the primary source of nutrition in our diets. Although many were already adopting many of the great grass-fed, pastured, organic foods on their own, it seems the increased awareness of these things talked about in the world of Paleo has spilled over into the mindset of so many of us low-carbers, myself included beginning in 2011. If I start naming names, I’m gonna leave people off who deserve to be listed. You know who you are (and THANK YOU for educating us all!).

    I think it has been far too easy for people on the Atkins diet to fall prey to looking for “low-carb” marketing gimmicks (like pasta and bread) because we’ve grown up in a society centered around processed convenience foods. We have justified it in our minds that as long as it says “low-carb” right there on the packaging that it must be good regardless of the ingredients. Believe me, that was my mode of thinking too back in 2004 when I was first finding success on the Atkins diet. But I wish someone had told me the truth about these products from companies like Atkins Nutritionals to save me from the heartache and pain of weight struggles despite doing what I thought was a good low-carb plan.

    When the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins sold his namsake company over a decade ago, I don’t think he had any idea just how much they would bastardize his good name for the sake of profiteering off of innocent people attempting to shift their diet away from sugary, starchy, grain-based carbohydrates. And yet that’s exactly what they have done. Let’s just get one thing straight: all these products from Atkins Nutritionals are most certainly NOT an appropriate part of a well-formulated version of the Atkins diet. Period. I won’t get into all the details on the basic flaws in every single product that Atkins Nutritionals is putting out there for consumers, but I would like to zero in on their latest one that debuted last week to explain why it infuriates me to no end. Have you seen their new Atkins Endulge Chocolate Peanut Candies? These are supposed to be the Atkins knockoff version of Peanut M&M’s and I’m sure the creators of this product are very proud of themselves for making a legal “low-carb” version of a long forbidden item on the Atkins diet.

    You’ve gotta read this list of ingredients in this:

    Also, don’t miss the nutritional information label on this:

    Okay, so here are 7 reasons low-carbers should AVOID this product in their diet:


    1. 17g carbohydrates

    Before you start talking about “net carbs” (believe me, I used to argue this point as well), I have a stark reality check–that’s nothing more than a marketing term meant to sell more products. As you can see from the image to the left, this product claims to have just 1g net carb per serving right there on the front packaging. So it must be true or they couldn’t put it on there, right? Well, technically they are allowed to say that because of the assumption that the sugar alcohols and fiber can be subtracted from the total carbohydrates. Unfortunately, I fell for that lie far too many times and paid the consequences for it when my weight loss stopped and I even began gaining weight. If you can handle 17g of carbohydrates in your personal carbohydrate tolerance level and choose to consume this product, then more power to ya. But before you do, be aware of the #2 reason to avoid these…

    2. Maltitol

    Oh, where do I start with this one? If you’re going to pick a sugar alcohol to consume, the LAST one you would ever choose is maltitol. It’s a highly inferior and cheap sugar alcohol (compared to erythritol and xylitol, for example) which is why all these companies that make sugar-free products love it so much. They have been putting this stuff in diabetic candies and low-carb products for years despite the fact that it leads to some rather nasty and disturbing effects on the stomach and digestive system. If you never want to experience the pain and gas that this causes, then you might not want to consume this product. And there’s growing consensus that these sugar alcohols like maltitol are not freebies on their blood sugar and insulin impact. That’s one of the major traps that people who eat the Atkins diet without regard to food quality fall for that leads them down the path to frustration. I did back in the day and I’m trying to save others from being victimized by the marketing.

    3. Peanuts

    Well, as much as people who eat low-carb would like to think that peanuts are an ideal option to be consuming on their diet change, there’s just one problem–peanuts are not a nut, they’re a legume from the bean family. The problem with peanuts is they contain a protein called lectin that causes them to be super difficult to digest. When you eat peanuts, this problem with digestion can lead to a immune response that then promotes systemic inflammation in the body. Not good. But that’s not all that’s wrong with the peanuts used in this product. Did you see the oil they use to roast them in…

    4. Corn oil

    With all we have learned about how unhealthy these vegetable (seed) oils are in recent years, it’s unbelievable that the Atkins Nutritionals company would be so oblivious to the problems associated with the omega-6 fats. In Cholesterol Clarity, we identified carbohydrates and vegetable oils as the two primary things that increased the level of inflammation in the body. If the purpose of a low-carb diet like Atkins is to lower inflammation levels (and it is), then why in the world would you EVER put an inflammatory corn oil in a product designed for a low-carber to eat? This is insanity at its very worst.

    5. Soy lecithin

    Another major shift in my thinking about nutrition over the years has been in regards to soy. After reading The Whole Soy Story by Dr. Kaayla Daniel, I quickly became up-to-speed about why soy should not be a part of anyone’s low-carb lifestyle change. Read this for just a few of the reasons why. Furthermore, soy is the most genetically-modified crop put in our food supply on the planet! You’re better off just avoiding anything that contains soy in any form, including the ubiquitous soy lecithin that is used as a bonding agent to keep all the ingredients in the chocolate intact. And it’s dirt cheap which is why virtually everything processed includes it.

    6. Fake food colorings

    Did you see that list of food colorings at the end of the ingredients list? Titanium Dioxide Color, Yellow 5 Lake, Red 40 Lake, Blue 1 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Yellow 6–this all sounds like something from a bad science fiction experiment, but it’s as real as real gets. How do you think they got all those “candies” to be so brightly colored? It’s these fake food colorings that people think are completely innocuous to their health. And yet you might want to read this to learn a bit more about these ingredients used to artificially color that low-carb product you think you need in your diet. See, it’s not just about the carbohydrates people. There’s so much more to pay attention to and be aware of regarding the foods you are consuming.

    7. Processed food-like product

    Last but not least, lest anyone forgets the biggest reason why a low-carber should be avoiding these new Atkins Chocolate Peanut Candies–IT’S NOT REAL FOOD! At best, you can describe these as a processed food-like product that resemble something familiar from your sugar-addicted, high-carb eating days. But now that you are choosing to improve your weight and health by lowering carbohydrate intake, there are so many better choices for nourishing your body than this. As someone who was severely addicted to sugar, I never truly recovered from that until I gave up processed foods of all kinds. Trading heavily processed high-carb M&M’s for heavily processed “low-carb” M&M’s wanna-be products created with the worst ingredients possible is no way to live your low-carb life. Get off this kind of stuff, consume real whole foods as much as possible, and make anything like this an infrequent or NEVER part of your diet. You’ll be glad you did.

    Here’s the bottom line: Be discerning about what you allow in your mouth. Stick to real food as much as you can. Don’t fall for the “net effective carbs” marketing scheme–this is a scam people. Buyer beware! Don’t fall for this just because it has the Atkins name on the packaging. I want you to succeed on your low-carb lifestyle so you don’t become the next victim of thinking you’re doing low-carb well when you’re really not. If you do choose to eat this kind of product, then make it as infrequent a “treat” as you possibly can because in the end it will do you more harm than good. Be well my friends!

    Jimmy Moore’s October 7, 2013 Appearance On ‘The 700 Club’

    I’m excited to share with you a very cool opportunity I had to tape a segment for an internationally-televised appearance on the “The 700 Club” set to air on Monday, October 7, 2013 (check local listings to find out when it airs in your area). This program garners millions of listeners globally every weekday and the programming is geared towards providing information for Christians (which I am one). I shared about the five-hour taping experience last month for this 5-minute segment that is set to air within the first 15 minutes of the show entitled “Eat Fats, Cut Carbs to Reclaim Your Skinny Self.” The CBN News Medical Reporter Lorie Johnson (you can follow her on Twitter and Facebook) has already done a positive story on low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets and their relationship to cancer previously HERE in case you missed it.

    We discussed my low-carb success story, the struggles I had with morbid obesity, the improvements I saw in my health consuming a low-carb, high-fat diet, why carbohydrates are the culprit in obesity and chronic diseases many suffer with, the intense fear of saturated fat that keeps people mired in poor health, details about the information on cholesterol and heart health Dr. Eric Westman and I shared in our new book Cholesterol Clarity, helping others find a low-carb friendly physician to help them in their health journey, how to justify making a low-carb, high-fat diet a permanent and healthy lifestyle choice, and other nuggets of truth that I’m happy to get out there to a whole new audience of people who desperately need to hear this information now more than ever before!

    After you watch the segment, I’d love to hear your feedback about it in the comments section below. And if you found “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” after seeing me on “The 700 Club,” welcome to the blog and say hello or any any questions you may have for me. In case you didn’t see the segment on television, here it is to view:


    http://youtu.be/lN5Ik_oE7xs

    10-7-13 UPDATE: If you watched the full segment with commentary afterwards on television today to the very end, then you probably heard “The 700 Club” host Pat Robertson say some things about a low-carb, high-fat diet approach warning people about it. His primary concern seemed to be centered around the subject of gout and the resulting joint pain that he says would be caused by not eating enough carbohydrates in your diet. For more information responding to this topic, check out this post on Tim Ferriss’ “Four Hour Workweek” blog featuring the “missing chapter” on gout from Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories book as well as what Mark Sisson from the “Mark’s Daily Apple” blog shares on this subject. If the gout issue is what the concern is rather than high cholesterol and clogged arteries from eating a high-fat diet, then I’d say all in all it makes this segment awesome. I trust people to make their own judgment about what’s best for them and their health. What did YOU think?

    ATLCX (Episode 48): James Clear | All Things Intermittent Fasting (IF 101)

    LOW-CARB PASTABILITIES FROM QUEST NUTRITION

    In Episode 48 of “Jimmy Moore Presents: Ask The Low-Carb Experts,” we’ve got an engaging conversation with a nutritional habits and intermittent fasting (IF) expert named James Clear answering questions about the highly misunderstood concept of IF. If you just mention the word “fasting” to the man on the street, the reaction you’ll get from most of them would probably fall somewhere between completely scoffing at the idea to the sheer terror at the realization of going without food for more than a few hours or just dismissing it outright. This concept of fasting even on an intermittent basis, as has become popularized in the Paleo community in recent years, is certainly a highly controversial strategy that could very well be the last piece of the puzzle in optimizing your weight and health issues. Is intermittent fasting (aka IF) the right way to go for everyone, especially for women who seem to have more difficulty with this? Is there anyone who absolutely shouldn’t IF or even those who must do it for therapeutic purposes? And how long and how often should these fasting periods be done to get the most benefit out of them? These are just some of the questions we explored further with a nutritional habits expert named James Clear (listen to my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast with him in Episode 705) in Episode 48 of “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” where we answered YOUR questions on “All Things Intermittent Fasting (IF 101).”

    Here are some of the questions we addressed in this episode:

    RENEE ASKS: I have long heard that women in general don’t have great results from intermittent fasting. I’m wondering whether you agree with this, why it happens, and if this applies to post-menopausal women? I am a post-menopausal female and naturally IF more days than not. What effect does IF have on women’s and men’s hormones?

    KARL ASKS: I have been doing Intermittent Fasting for the past few weeks eating meals between 12-8pm. Do you have any suggestions about how I can make sure I get enough food in my body during that 8-hour window? I feel like I’m eating way too few calories.

    I do have a cup of coffee with about two teaspoons of heavy cream in the mornings. Does that coffee and/or cream make any difference in the effects of an intermittent fast? Should I add a tablespoon of coconut oil or MCT oil to make it better? Or should I be going that entire 16 hours without any calories consumed to technically do an IF?

    JANIE ASKS: I skip breakfast just about every single day as I’m just not hungry in the mornings. Sometimes I’ll have decaffeinated coffee with a tablespoon of heavy cream but I wonder if that officially breaks my fast. I see people in the Paleo community having multiple tablespoons of fat in their coffee yet they say that they are still fasting! I am pretty sure a 900-calorie cup of coffee is NOT fasting, right? Is there a calorie level that I can consume in my coffee that keeps my intermittent fasting going?

    JASON ASKS: How important is it to eat as soon as possible after a fasted workout? I enjoy my post-workout fat/protein shake but I could just as easily go without it as I am rarely hungry after a workout. Am I harming recovery and/or muscle growth if I just wait until lunch to eat after my morning workout?

    Is there a known physiological benefit to forcing a 24 hour fast? What are the health reasons to do periodic fasts during the week?

    JENNY ASKS: I’ve been eating low-carb, high-fat for 3 months now and incorporated a 24-hour fast, two days a week for the last month. I also try to mini-fast for 17 hours between my meals everyday. When does the timer begin for fasting: as soon as I put my fork down or about 3 hours later when I’ve digested my last meal?

    One issue I am having is that I want to take my vitamins everyday, especially on fasting days, but I can’t keep them down on an empty stomach. Is there any type of food that I can eat to stay in a fasted state but is substantial enough to let me take my vitamins? I tried almond butter and was able to keep the pills down but it was not the best option for me. Would a pure fast be even more beneficial than a multivitamin?

    DAMON ASKS: Assuming proper caloric load and macronutrient breakdown compliance, what could be the reasons for not getting results as far as fat loss goes when engaging in regular periods of intermittent fasting?

    Are there any disadvantages to doing resistance training in a fasted state in the morning if you don’t eat until later in the day?

    DEB ASKS: I’m a 48-year old woman and changed my exercise to mainly weight-training and short bouts of high intensity interval training with lots of walking, but was eating low-calorie/low-carb/Paleo for part of the time and doing IF for most of that time frame. I check my muscle progress by doing hydrostatic weighing and I was told I’m losing muscle because I train in a fasted state. Does the kind of exercise matter when doing it fasted? What should I be doing and what should I avoid if I exercise in a fasted state?

    GEZ ASKS: I’m a 44-year old man and have lost 70 pounds following a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. Intermittent fasting 16-18 hours daily and high intensity eccentric exercise for 30 minutes once a week helped me shed the final 14 pounds. My question is I’m finding it difficult to lose the remaining fat around my waist and lower back. Should I change the length of my intermittent fast to longer periods of time between meals? I’ve also considered adding in a high-carb day once a week in the vein of Keifer’s Carb Nite Solution ketogenic cycling system. Any thoughts?

    MICKEY ASKS: I have been fasting quite regularly and eat one meal in the evening around 1500-2000 calories a day. I don’t really get hungry at all during the day. My concern is whether or not I am prone to losing too much muscle mass doing this? Is it possible to overdo it when you are fasting?
