These are exciting times for those of us who believe in the healthy low-carb lifestyle. The year 2014 has been a banner one for the message of consuming healthy fats, including saturated fats, limiting carbohydrate consumption as a means for optimizing health, and the rise in popularity in the research realm to much more closely examine the use of ketogenic diets in various chronic diseases. We’ve been chronicling all of these changes here on this podcast providing you with weekly updates on all that’s happening in the wonderful world of health. It remains our passionate desire to give you quality news and views from some of the leading voices in the Paleo and low-carb community each and every Friday, so won’t you join us in keeping this mission alive and well?

ARE THE GLORY DAYS OF SUGARY SODA FINALLY COMING TO AN END?

Coke Confronts Its Big Fat Problem

In today’s episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by two truly amazing guest friends who actually both found Paleo through the Whole30 in a San Francisco Bay Area Certified Nutrition Consultant with a fascinating story of overcoming alcohol and smoking addiction named Susan McCauley at “Evolve Nutrition” and an amateur triathlete who was diagnosed with a debilitating condition called “Glycogen Storage Disease Type V” (also known as McArdle’s Disease) and discovered the amazing health benefits that come from eating a ketogenic Paleo diet named Dane DeValcourt (Dane’s story is featured in Jimmy’s new book Keto Clarity). Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Susan, and Dane give their thoughts about that new low-carb vs. low-fat diet study funded by the National Institutes of Health that published this week, why there is danger to your health when you don’t consume ENOUGH salt in your diet, the desperation by companies like Coca-Cola to revive their brand that has been built on sugary sodas, another vascular surgeon coming out in opposition to statin medications, an op-ed from a frustrated chef who doesn’t think customers should be making so many menu substitutions without a disease requiring it, a registered dietitian (and it’s not Cassie!) sharing why saturated fats and cholesterol are not harmful to consume, and why school districts are making the decision to drop the new federal “healthy” school lunch guidelines because they’re just not working. Plus, don’t miss Susan’s amazingly ketogenic-friendly Rosemary Thyme Butter recipe and Dane’s high-fat tip at the end of the show. It’s time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

    My neighbor looks exactly like the picture of Santa (sans the Santa suit and beard) but he doesn’t drink Coke he drinks Pepsi…hmmmm common thread here I think !

    I remember going to a restaurant and choosing low-carb foods and mentioning that i don’t want bread. The waiter had the nerve to say, maybe this is not the right restaurant to come to if your on a “diet”. Well, that restaurant is no longer in business. And now I just tell them I’m “insulin resistant” if I have to explain why I don’t want bread or dessert, which is not a lie. I still eat hamburgers but just tell them to hold the bun and ask for steamed veggies to substitute for fries (Ruby Tuesday’s is great about this and if the server is cooperative, I tip them extra.)
