The LLVLC Show (Episode 648): Aglaee Jacob The Paleo Dietitian Encourages Real Food Nutrition


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

In Episode 648 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we’re proud to share with you another fantastic Paleo-based registered dietitian and naturopathic medical school student named Aglaee Jacob. Conventional nutritional wisdom abounds abundantly amongst the majority of today’s primary educators about what constitutes a healthy menu plan–that would be registered dietitians, aka RDs. Unfortunately, for most in that profession their definition of what “healthy” means usually ends up being a diet that is low in fat and calories, high in “healthy whole grains” and heavy on the pro-inflammatory omega-6-rich vegetable oil fats. But for Aglaee Jacob “The Paleo Dietitian”, she’s part of a brand new breed of RDs who are willing to stand up for what the science is saying regarding good nutrition and it bears little resemblance to the typical stuff you hear about from traditional RDs regarding the relationship between food and health.

Aglaee was traditionally-trained in dietetics, but quickly lost her enthusiasm for it after years of failing to see the results with her clients that she thought they should. But after going through her own personal health struggles and realizing the power of the therapeutic use of Paleo nutrition and lifestyle strategies for herself, it rekindled her passion for helping improve the health of her clients. She’s the author of the April 15, 2013 release of the book Digestive Health with REAL Food: A Practical Guide to an Anti-Inflammatory, Nutrient Dense Diet for IBS & Other Digestive Issues dedicated to the subject of gut health. Listen in as Aglaee and I discuss the work she does and why she’s spreading the message on behalf of a lower-carb, higher-fat Paleo into the mainstream of registered dietitians. Let today’s podcast interview encourage you that a nutritional revolution based on real whole foods from a Paleo/low-carb perspective is happening behind-the-scenes.

Listen to Aglaee Jacob share real food health solutions:

  • Nutrition seemed to be a good way to do that
  • She was a diabetes educator for mostly Type 2’s
  • Nutrition can be very powerful for diabetics
  • But she had to follow the Canadian guidelines
  • She was having to recommend 75g carbs per meal
  • These recommendations were “not that helpful”
  • Blood sugar issues continued and she felt jaded

  • The book is almost 400 pages on digestive health
  • It’s not all scientific, but “down-to-Earth” info
  • The publisher is the guy behind The Paleo Magazine
  • She also writes for Cain Credicott in his publication
  • Whether it seems weird that we emphasize “real food”
  • Nowadays, people are confused about what real food is
  • For example, they think whole grains are real food
  • What she thinks about Paleo and low-carb “disconnect”
  • There’s a “big overlap” between the two messages
  • Even Paleo dieters are eating a much lower-carb diet
  • There are a lot of factors that go into determining diet
  • IBS, obesity, blood sugar issues need lower-carb diet
  • Diets should evolve over time, “tweak it” along the way
  • My testing of sweet potatoes in 2012 that wasn’t good
  • Her e-book on eating out and traveling on Paleo
  • You want to enjoy yourself when you are away

    Coming up this Thursday in Episode 36 of the “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” podcast, we have a very important topic of discussion for people on a low-carb diet. If you ask a typical RD about the role of hunger in your diet, then you’ll likely hear it’s a positive sign of success in your weight loss efforts. But Paul Jaminet, author of the newly-revised Perfect Health Diet: Regain Health and Lose Weight by Eating the Way You Were Meant to Eat, would beg to differ. He explains in his book that hunger is actually a tell-tale sign of malnutrition that needs to be addressed and not something to be glorified or honored as something good for you. But far too many people still feel this strange connection to being hungry on a diet which is why Paul Jaminet is joining us to look at the role of hunger and satiety on a weight loss diet. Start getting me your questions NOW about the role of hunger and satiety on a good weight loss diet for me to ask Paul Jaminet 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.
