Before we get into today’s main interview, I wanted to share about an exciting new research endeavor that YOU should be a part of. It’s called The American Gut Project and it’s the world’s LARGEST open-source, community driven effort to characterize the microbial diversity of the American public. In a brief conversation with me at the beginning of today’s episode, Human Food Project Founder Jeff Leach shares about why it’s important to learn more about the microbes in your gut, his desire for a wide diversity in stool samples from Paleo, low-carbers, vegans and even SAD diet eaters, the need to raise $400,000 to pay for the expenses of conducing this research and the differences that will be seen between gut biota with people in various places around the world. This is a critically important project that I sincerely hope all of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast listeners will participate in, so CLICK HERE to join me and Christine in finding out what’s in your gut!
Listen to Jeff Leach talk about his research project:
In Episode 642 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are pleased to tell you about an ultramarathon runner and low-carb endurance athlete named Timothy Allen Olson. We’ve often heard within the context of endurance athletics that you must be consuming copious amounts of carbohydrates in your diet in order to adequately fuel your performance. But what would happen if an athlete decided to shift his training from being a sugar-burner to a fat-burner using ketones for fuel instead? That’s what Timothy Allen Oson from the “Sole To Soul Rhythm” blog decided to put to the test after experiencing stomach pain during his races.
After coming in a disappointing sixth place in the 2011 Western States 100-mile Endurance Run when he went through an excruciating stretch of running that had him stop to go to the bathroom over 20 times towards the end of the race, Tim knew he needed to make a change in his training diet. So he not only cut out the gluten from his meals, but also most of the carbohydrates which helped him experience some remarkable improvements in the stomach pain as well as in how he felt during his training. When the 2012 Western States 100 rolled around in June 2012, Tim was ready to take on this challenge of running such a long race in a mostly-ketogenic state. What happened? Well, Tim not only came in first place to win the race, but he did it in a record time of 14:46:44–21 minutes faster than the previous course best!
Watch this video of Tim Olson’s 2012 Western States 100 win:
Listen in as Tim and I talk about how he has always had a passion for running, the interest he got in learning more about nutritional performance due to his own physical challenges, why “carb-loading” is still so popular amongst his fellow endurance athletes, why he chooses to eat a high-fat, low-carb diet to be in a ketogenic state, his historic win at the 2012 Western States 100 ultramarathon, how a late-race challenge from one of his fellow competitors pushed him to finish strong, what he did to avoid “bonking” during the race, his new sponsors giving him the freedom to race in places like New Zealand in 2013 and so much more. You’ve probably heard about this ketogenic diet marathon runner before. Now hear directly from the man himself in his own words in today’s interview.

After a two-month absence, we’re back this week with Episode 34 of the “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” podcast. One of the biggest criticisms of the low-carb diet over the years is that it sacrifices choosing the best quality foods in favor of the simple process of cutting carbohydrates. But in 2013, that’s not the reality of what most of us low-carbers are actually doing. The challenge that we face as carb-conscious consumers is in balancing our desire to control the amount of carbohydrates we consume with the need to obtain the most nutrition out of the foods we eat. That’s where our guest experts Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton come into play. In 2013, they’re back with a brand new book releasing on February 26th entitled Rich Food Poor Food: The Ultimate Grocery Purchasing System (GPS) that serves as a virtual guide for how to go shopping without getting confused by slick marketing by food companies. Start getting me your questions NOW regarding the importance of food quality on a low-carb diet for me to ask Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton by e-mailing them to AskTheLowCarbExperts@gmail.com no later than 3PM ET on the day the podcast airs. You can also ask your question LIVE on my show by calling (712) 432-0900 or Skype the show for FREE by calling the username freeconferencing.7124320900.
