We’ve come to our final Friday episode for a few weeks while our hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie (as well as our podcast producer Kevin Kennedy-Spaien) set sail on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise. The health headlines never stop even when we are away, so we’ll keep a close eye out for the ones that warrant our attention and promise to get to the best of the best (or worst of the worst!) when we return in mid-June.

In today’s episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by Kiersten Peterson from the “Vibrant Life Army Wife” blog who authored an incredible ebook entitled Butter Your Broth. Listen to Jimmy and Cassie banter a bit at the beginning about Jimmy’s new Apple Watch with all the health features it has and Olive Garden’s new Breadstick sandwiches introduced in an effort to boost sluggish sales.


Here’s What Eating Nothing But McDonalds for 10 Days Does to Your Gut Bacteria
Listen in as Jimmy, Cassie, and Kiersten give their thoughts on how quickly gut health changes can happen on a fast food diet, why childhood obesity has become a concern for national security, why the FDA wants to go after natural health product makers, another study showing the connection between Alzheimer’s and diabetes, five dubious carbohydrates that are supposed to help with weight loss, the rise in the scientific interest of n=1 experiments, the impact of switching to an all-organic diet, and the powerful effects of fructose that make you choose it over a monetary reward. Plus don’t miss Kiersten’s Anti-Inflammatory Bone Broth recipe from Butter Your Broth to help end this episode. So it’s time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

NOTE: There will be no Low-Carb Conversations podcasts the next few weeks as Jimmy and Cassie are on the Low-Carb Cruise. We’ll return with brand new episodes on Friday, June 12, 2015.

    Regarding the last headline:

    Since fructose doesn’t get processed the same way as glucose, the increased hunger effect can’t be explained with the same blood glucose argument. The explanation that makes the most sense to me was given by Dr Richard Johnson at Low Carb NZ 2014, ‘The Story Behind the Fat Switch’. https://youtu.be/F1afyKN18S0
    He explained that during the end stage of starvation, when muscle cells are broken down, a byproduct from the DNA and RNA breakdown is uric acid. This he claims is what signals to the brain to seek food, YOU ARE STARVING TO DEATH!

    Dr Robert Lustig in Sugar The Bitter Truth, https://youtu.be/dBnniua6-oM
    points out uric acid is a byproduct of fructose metabolism – due to phosphate being taken from ATP. I recall that for each fructose molecule consumed, there is a uric acid molecule produced. This also raises blood pressure.

    Maybe they should bypass the fructose and just inject uric acid to do the same kind of test?
