Remembering Kevin Moore

The LLVLC Show (Episode 624): Low-Carb Paleo Nutritionist And Blogger Wendy Schwartz


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

In Episode 624 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are excited to bring to you a low-carb Paleo nutritional health advocate and blogger named Wendy Schwartz to share about the great work she is doing at her “Go Paleo!” blog. Wendy is a graduate of New York University and holds both a Bachelor’s and a Master’ Degree in Food and Nutrition.

During her early career, she worked at both Mt. Sinai Hospital and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, but realized clinical nutrition research was not for her. These days, Wendy is a member of the Nutritional Therapy Association and speaks publicly throughout the greater Tampa Bay, Florida area as an expert Low-Carb Paleo Nutritionist. She provides educational supermarket shopping tours (which she’s currently writing an e-book about) to help consumers learn how to eat Paleo-styled while avoiding the pitfalls of misleading food labeling and advertising. Having her own challenges with food, Wendy is keenly aware of the impact that nutrition can have on personal health. Listen in as she and I have a delightful conversation about what living a healthy low-carb Paleo lifestyle looks like in real life.

Listen to Wendy Schwartz talk about her love for Paleo living:

  • The sleeve of Ritz crackers she’d “run into the kitchen for”
  • She wanted to discover how to be “slim” instead of healthy
  • She wanted to call NYU to get her money back for her degree
  • Her research into the low-carb and Paleo lifestyle
  • When she ate low-carb, she ate the low-carb garbage products
  • This led her to look into Paleo in 2010 after health got worse
  • She read Mark Sisson‘s Primal Blueprint to discover more
  • The nutritional ketosis experiment that I’ve been doing
  • The “big food companies” behind the so-called low-carb foods
  • You need to stick to real food as much as possible
  • Her n=1 of moderating protein intake to help her
  • Nora Gedgaudas has long pushed for lower intake of protein
  • She suspects consuming high protein is “a load on the system”
  • How she gets “a little bored” eating high-fat, low-carb
  • What she currently eats in her high-fat, low-carb diet
  • She can’t keep fruit in her house except lemons/limes
  • The pastured-raised pork belly she recently discovered
  • She doesn’t eat any starches at all and hasn’t for years
  • She went from a sweet tooth to a “fat tooth”
  • She can’t overeat on fat…except for nuts
  • I tend to get hungry when I eat nuts, so I avoid it
  • When she ate once a day, she’d be “full all day long”
  • Her morning blood sugar levels were somewhat elevated
  • She’s now eating several times daily, not counting calories
  • Ever since she started Slow Burn, she looks really good
  • Listen to my ATLCX podcast with Fred Hahn
  • She can eat even when she’s not hungry–psychological?
  • When she checked her blood ketones, “hormones kicked in”
  • They got up to 4.0 mmoL when eating once daily
  • Now they’re “a little lower” eating several times a day
  • The almond butter she says “is not good for me” to eat
  • My blood sugar was “all over” during nutritional ketosis
  • But it eventually leveled out to 70s and 80s
  • On weight lifting days, I’m eating at least twice with protein
  • You don’t want to defeat the purpose of lifting weights
  • Nutritional ketosis is “the next level” of low-carb living
  • Not everyone needs to be as restrictive as others
  • Her hunger levels too high from high blood sugar
  • When you’re in nutritional ketosis, you tend to stay there
  • She can tell by her appetite if she’s in “heavy ketosis”
  • Once a week she’ll test her blood ketones to see where she is
  • You can “feel it” when your blood ketones aren’t high enough
  • How Paleo helped her IBS even without going low-carb
  • Foods high in FODMAPs can be problematic for health
  • How “bacterial overgrowth” can cause issues for some people
  • Why avocados and asparagus lead to problems for a few
  • Listen to Diane Sanfilippo on The LLVLC Show podcast
  • Her goal to ‘attract the community that is not yet Paleo”
  • Her Master’s thesis was on food labeling/advertising
  • The soy and fruit beverage commercial that repulsed her
  • People really struggle with menu suggestions about what to eat
  • Eating fish for breakfast is no big deal in other countries
  • The “kindred spirit” she’s found in her local Tampa, FL area
  • Your healthy food plan is actually LESS expensive than before
  • Her upcoming e-book will address what foods are better to get
  • Her recent blog column on her concerns about buying nuts
  • Potato starch doesn’t belong in turkey or seed oils in nuts
  • You can actually taste the “rancid” bad oils in nuts
  • The word to look for is “dry roasted” for no oils in them
  • If you don’t see dry roasted, it’s probably got bad oils
  • The food companies don’t care about health, just making a buck
  • Her e-book will be available in 2013 sometime
  • Her hope to do an annual update to give people latest info
  • Their idea to “do an app” with the supermarket buying guide
  • Her desire to write a paper book with these concepts, too
  • This is her “passion” and she wants to make change happen

    JOIN US ON THE “ASK THE LOW-CARB EXPERTS” PODCAST THIS WEEK: Coming up in Episode 30 of “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 7PM ET, we’ll have a Brooklyn, NY-based SUNY Downstate biochemistry professor and the founder of The Nutrition & Metabolism Society named Dr. Richard Feinman joining us to talk about the hot topic “Getting Low-Carb To Join The Scientific Mainstream.” In recent years, we’ve seen a lot of momentum happening within the scientific realm towards carbohydrate restriction that could quite possibly be the beginning of the next low-carb revolution. There’s a plethora of quality research being conducted out there on carbohydrate-restricted diets on a variety of fronts from metabolic syndrome to epilepsy to cancer. But unfortunately these research projects for the most part are not being funded by major funding sources like the National Institutes for Health or other key sources. So how do we get low-carb to join the scientific mainstream so that more investigation can be done into the veracity of this way of eating? That’s what we’ll be exploring in this week’s show. Start getting me your questions NOW regarding getting the low-carb research into the scientific mainstream for me to ask Dr. Richard Feinman by e-mailing them to AskTheLowCarbExperts@gmail.com no later than 3PM ET on the date the podcast airs.
