“Low-Carb Conversations” is a health podcast unlike any other you have ever heard before. It’s a show that airs on Fridays and takes a critical look at all the latest health headlines and features personal commentary from people who comprise the low-carb and Paleo communities. These special guest “friends” help round out a panel of opinion-makers who share thought-provoking insights and analysis on the news of the day through the lens of healthy low-carb living. Let’s meet the co-hosts of the show:
I’m Kara Halderman, born and raised a Texas gal turned nutrition nut. All my life I was fed the standard American Diet, and boy did it show. As an infant I caught persistent strep throat; as a teen a gnarly case of mono almost kicked me out of high school; and I popped antibiotics like candy. My favorite foods were bread, mac & cheese, chicken nuggets and all things sugar. Getting older, problems escalated. I developed 30 ulcers in my small intestine that completely withdrew me from social life, family life and even college. At 19 I moved back home from University to live with my parents, saw doctor after doctor and prayed for an answer. After failed attempts by the medical field, I stumbled upon the paleo diet. Within 3 months adopting this lifestyle and working with a naturopathic doctor, I was on the road to serious recovery.
Fast forwards three years later, I’m now 21 and feeling more alive than ever! My true passion is educating young folks just like me about proper nutrition, because feeling sick is NOT normal. This approach led me to the Nutritional Therapy Association where I will graduate in June 2017 as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and begin my own practice. Aside from school and the podcast I run a paleo food blog and work alongside Austin’s first paleo inspired restaurant.
