The LLVLC Show (Episode 708): Bill Lagakos Defends The Reputation Of The Poor, Misunderstood Calorie


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

Joe tweet In Episode 708 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are pleased to welcome in a nutritional biochemist and author named Bill Lagakos for a fabulous interview about calories. But before we get into today’s featured interview, I wanted to share a quick conversation with one of my Twitter followers named Joe Anastasi who shockingly shared last week that he felt like he had to switch away from his high-fat, low-carb diet to a high-carb, low-fat diet so his cholesterol numbers would fall into the “preferred rate” range to get the life insurance coverage he needs to take care of his family. Needless to say, Joe is not happy about doing this, but he feels like he had no other choice. Listen in and Joe and I talk about this critical topic and we invite YOUR input and personal experience about dealing with getting life and health insurance for those of us who consume a Paleo/low-carb eating plan that may make our cholesterol numbers look outside the range of acceptable to these insurance providers.

ScreenShot2013-08-04at61310PM_zps29451976 In today’s featured interview, we’ve got a rising star in the low-carb and Paleo communities with a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry and Physiology and a researcher into issues such as obesity, inflammation, and insulin resistance named Dr. William “Bill” Lagakos, PhD from the “Calories Proper” blog. There’s been a lot of debate in recent years about the role calories play in nutrition which is what led Bill to write a simple little book entitled The Poor, Misunderstood Calorie to educate people on this subject that has been used to justify the promotion of a low-fat, high-carb diet. Check out this awesome conversation between me and Bill about the distinction between the definition of a calorie biochemically vs. nutritionally, the importance of the quality of calories consumed, the vital role that fats play in the diet, and so much more! The calorie apologists are gonna hate what Bill Lagakos has to share in this interview. Tune in to hear his defense of the reputation of the poor, misunderstood calorie. And don’t miss his upcoming appearance on the LIVE “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” podcast on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 7PM ET taking on the topic “All Things Calories (Calories 201).”
