Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are stoked to have two more fabulous guest friends from the low-carb blogging world joining them today in Singapore-based low-carb, high-fat fan Ilona Kasza from the “Big Fat Blog” and 22-year old real food-based low-carber and college student David Pickholtz from the “My Low Carb College Kitchen” blog. Listen in at the beginning as this foursome take on a brand new “Secret Headline” feature that Jimmy and Cassie decided to start doing each week to get a spontaneous reaction from their guest friends. This is the graphic that got the conversation going–Dr. Oz’s 500-Calorie Fast Food Meals:

You’re not going to want to miss the response to this! Listen in as Jimmy, Cassie, Ilona and David opine on the health headlines, including how researchers try to extrapolate information about high-fat diets on humans from a study on mice, the absurdity of a new research study claiming offering donuts as an incentive for exercising is a good thing, why the interpretation of what constitutes a “quality” diet is important when the subject is pancreatic cancer, whether sugar should have a warning label attached to it or not, new research showing drinking coffee and cutting carbohydrates in your diet can reduce endometrial cancer, the rising online doctor visit trend for cost savings, and so much more! We always have a great time on this show, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about it!

    “Doctor” Oz ought to have his medical license revoked!

    That Chipotle commercial is awesome! You guys seemed to analyzed and interpret only the message. But in terms of artistic creativity, production value, things like that it’s one of the better short animations I’ve seen.

      I agree, it was VERY well done from a production standpoint.

    We love to suggest government intervention with dietary policies. (I’m talking about adding warning labels to sugar.) But I think there are a couple of problems.

    First there is disagreement about whether sugar is bad for you or not. I understand that the disagreement comes from bogus, paid for, research from big agriculture. But government intervention means someone in government is making the decision. What if they aren’t reading the same research we are? (This is the same government that gave us the food pyramid after all.)

    Second, we like to bring up the governments campaign against cigarettes as the model for having the government help us getting people eating healthily. But remember that there was an earlier and much more aggressive government campaign against alcohol that didn’t turn out so well.

    I think the answer for spreading the word about good nutrition can be gleaned from the failure of prohibition however. I contend that Mothers Against Drunk Driving is much more effective at reducing alcohol intake than the government ever was with prohibition. What we need are grass roots based civilian movements. Something like the Westin Price foundation. (Who unfortunately have strayed from reservation in recent years.)

    • LLVLCBlog

      I’m definitely AGAINST the government being involved in this. They can stay the heck out of my life and I’ll be just fine. But they don’t need to be suppressing information from the public to make an informed decision.
