In Episode 441 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have quite the philosophical conversation to share with you from Todd Becker from the “Getting Stronger” blog. Todd is a big believer in the philosophy of Hormetism, based on the application of progressive, intermittent stress to overcome challenges and grow stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. Yes, you heard that right–he thinks we should be ADDING more stress to our lives in order to have better overall health. It sounds like that would be counterintuitive to optimal health, but Todd makes a compelling argument for the use of Hormesis as a means for making your health the best it can possibly be.

Listen to Todd Becker share about what first got him interested in low-carb nutrition back in the 1990s, why he thinks the common dietary theories are too narrowly focused, the frustrating trend of seeing so many low-carb dieters stall and even gain weight, what Hormetism is and why it’s so important, how the body adapts to measured amounts of stress, the story about the time he forgot his glasses on vacation and how he improved his eyesight naturally, what he means by the idea of “controlled stress,” why barefoot running is better for you than wearing sneakers, how Hormesis relates to the low-carb/low-insulin diets, why a high-carb diet makes it difficult to shed body fat, the main problem that people run into when they start low-carb diets, the real benefit of a low-carb/low-insulin diet that is missed by too many low-carbers, the benefit of going longer and longer between meals (intermittent fasting), his “Deconditioning Diet,” why you should deliberately expose yourself to pleasurable food smells but not eat the food to lower insulin levels, how we’ve become conditioned by our regular routine and why we shouldn’t eat when we’re hungry, the purpose of using a blood glucose monitor to stabilize blood sugar levels, the personal changes he’s seen in his weight and health doing this concept, the importance of getting the fasting insulin levels as low as possible, what his menus look like, why having an occasional “treat” is a positive part of being successful in your diet, why it’s important to consume carbohydrates sometimes on your low-carb diet, how going too low-carb for too long can make you glucose intolerant, how a cold shower can help with weight loss and depression, why adaptation is so beneficial to your health, and the physiologist side vs. the Paleo/primal/evolutionists in the low-carb community. Todd certainly gives you a lot to think about regarding improving your low-carb lifestyle.
