In Episode 745 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we’ve got a fascinating Paleo blogger joining us for a fun conversation about health named J. Stanton. There are a lot of really smart people in the Paleo and low-carb communities who have so much amazing information to share about nutrition and health despite not having any credentials after their name. It’s not a prerequisite to have an MD, PhD, RD or any other “D” after your name to speak intelligently on the the most important topics within the context of a healthy lifestyle. Thank goodness that’s true because we’d never get to experience some of the most unique and fascinating people like J. Stanton from GNOLLS.ORG. After he wrote The Gnoll Credo outlining many of the principles he had learned on his own, Stanton found like-minded people and ideas in the Paleo community and began imparting the lessons he has learned along the way about things like metabolic flexibility, hunger, calories and more through his popular web site.

Listen in as J. Stanton and I dig deeper into these invaluable topics, including how he figured out many of the Paleo principles on his own, his background in computer science and not nutrition, where the “gnolls” terminology came from, the concept of metabolic flexibility and the importance of it, why you should be able to switch back and forth between burning glucose and fat for energy at will, why insulin resistance and obesity are not the same thing, the role of genetics and epigenetics play in this state of metabolic disturbance, why people shouldn’t blame genetics for their health woes and give up, the reason a ketogenic diet would not be a good idea for someone like him, why people tend to fail on their low-carb lifestyle, why so many people are chronically hungry, why hunger seems to be a prerequisite to succeeding at weight loss, how the body gets hungry for specific nutritional things, the most interesting question is why we can’t stop eating, the four things that are driving hunger the most, the reality of the concept of “empty calories,” why protein is critical to be consumed every single day, which macronutrient is most satiating–fat or protein?, why calories count but not all the same, why theory is not as important as the reality of what happens, and so much more!

It’s our final episode of 2013 for our LIVE podcast coming up later this week on Thursday night beginning at 7PM ET for Episode 52 of “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” taking on the neglected but very important topic “All Things Fermented (Fermentation 101).” With the increased interest and popularity of the Paleo lifestyle in recent years, so many people with chronic health and weight issues are discovering the power of an ancestral nutrition and fitness program. But many of these Paleo newbies are neglecting a key aspect of Paleo that is critical in light of all the emerging science we are seeing on having a robust and healthy gut microbiota. This is something holistic health coach Jill Ciciarelli from “First Comes Health” has noticed as well and is seeking to educate others about the vital importance of fermenting food for health. That’s what we’ll be addressing in Episode 52 of “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” this week when we take on the topic “All Things Fermented (Fermentation 101).” Here’s your chance to speak directly with the expert to ask YOUR questions.
