After bidding a fond farewell to his amazing co-host since the very beginning of this podcast last week, Jimmy is back in Episode 57 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends a brand new co-host we’re sure you’re gonna love. You might recall just a few months back hearing Cassie Bjork in Episode 50. Well, she likes to go by the moniker Dietitian Cassie and she’s an RD who truly gets it when it comes to low-carbohydrate nutrition. Her work with clients at a local hospital in the Minneapolis, MN area gives her the perfect perspective on diet and health. Plus she’s a huge fitness fanatic too which will give her a well-rounded base for opinions on the various health headlines of the day. We’re excited to have Cassie joining us for the first time today and we’d love to hear your feedback about her. As always, if you are enjoying what you hear on this podcast and want to help us stay on the air, then consider making a donation of any amount towards doing that. Jimmy and Cassie are super-excited about this next chapter in the “Low-Carb Conversations” story and appreciate having you along for the ride.

We’ve got two fabulous friends helping us welcome our new co-host Dietitian Cassie this week with Brooks Rembert from the “JB Primal” blog and Michael O’Neill from the “Ketopia” blog. Tune in to today’s show to hear our panel discuss whether food shortages will make us all vegetarians, if giving statins to everyone over the age of 50 is a good idea or not (what do you think?!), the utter and dismal failure of calorie restriction, what’s REALLY true about calories, why people need to be paying more attention to the buggers in their gut, the business decision by the Boston Market to cut salt in their restaurants and why whole wheat sales have taken such a nosedive lately (can’t be because of this book, could it?). And don’t miss Brooks and Michael during the recipe time going off on a rant about the need for recipes–INSTANT CLASSIC! Cassie does a spectacular job in her podcast debut and we’re so glad to have her next to Jimmy as a co-host. So, as always, pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk about it!

  • Wow. What a great time that was, Jimmy! Thanks for the opportunity! It was an incredible pleasure to meet Brooks and to be there for Dietician Cassie’s inaugural episode!

    I’d like to offer one quick correction to something I said: During our discussion I mentioned that Iowa sits above the Ogallala aquifer. I knew I was misspeaking as it was coming out, but didn’t have a chance to wrap back around to clarify this. My point still stands: Yes the Ogallala aquifer is being depleted faster than it can be replenished, and yes that’s the aquifer that many grain-belt states use for water…but it is not, in fact, the aquifer underneath Iowa (which has a mix of other alluvial and bedrock aquifers).

    It turns out it’s not easy to speak extemporaneously without error. I have a new appreciation for just how good you are, Jimmy!

      • Well, you know how it is, Jimmy. If I don’t point out my errors, my wife surely will. 😛
