Remembering Kevin Moore

The LLVLC Show (Episode 542): Simon Shawcross and Georges Phillips Present ‘The ONE Diet’


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

In Episode 542 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we welcome British weight loss coach and personal trainer Simon Shawcross and hypnotherapist Georges Phillips who are the co-authors of an exciting new book entitled The ONE Diet with a foreword from one of my former podcast interview guests named Dr. Doug McGuff. Simon has been actively helping people attain their weight loss and fitness goals in London, England since 2000 and often shares his love for low-carb nutritional health to his clients, in various seminars, and in his writings on health for several newspapers and magazines. Georges was one of Simon’s clients who got the help he so desperately sought and brought a fresh new perspective on how to improve upon the low-carb lifestyle even more. They collaborated on this new book to merge the nutritional and fitness knowledge that Simon possesses with the mental health experience that Georges brings to the table. These two men are a fine example of finding what works for you and then tweaking it to make it as optimal as it can be. Tune in to today’s episode as we get to the heart of this different look at low-carb living and bringing about meaningful changes that will shift the cultural beliefs on nutrition and health.

      This is the first time I’ve seen a reference to low-fat diets producing “bulimics.” Because my family has experienced such a wide-range of issues from our years of following the low-fat propaganda (my ex-husband was a primary care physician trained in the heyday of the lipid hypothesis and a big fan of Dean Ornish) I am likely to attribute just about any health problem to insulin resistance + excess carbs. I have become convinced that my daughter’s struggle with bulimia was caused by us feeding her on a low-fat diet throughout childhood. By age 16, she weighed 320 pounds. She lost half of that weight through extreme diet and exercise but developed the severe eating disorder along with it. Since she adopted a low-carb/paleo diet, she reports that she no longer feels the urge to binge and purge, and her insomnia and depression have vanished.
      What I wouldn’t give to go back 30 years and save my daughter the pain our misguided attempts brought her. She has the scars physical (surgery to remove excess skin after massive weight loss; they rarely talk about that in the media) and psychological, of course. The same is true for my son who was so “goofy” from ADHD induced by his high carb diet that he was bullied as a child and driven to heavy marijuana use as a teenager to calm his anxieties. His story also has a happy ending as he is a very clean paleo eater at age 23 a certified yoga teacher, and a “mole” at Whole Foods where he gives great low-carb/paleo advice to his customers!
