1599: Is It Possible That Eating Low-Carb Keto Is Too Healthy And Extreme?

Today we have a special JIMMY RANTS on The LLVLC Show for you. The failure of mainstream medical, nutrition, and health experts to give people practical and effective advice on how they need to eat in order to live optimally healthy has driven people to see out answers on their own. From Atkins to primal, Paleo to Whole30, fasting to keto…real people are discovering their path to weight loss and genuine healing in their body is coming from a diet and lifestyle that is far different from what they’ve always been told is good. Now, there’s a move by the nutritional health establishment to push back on these alternative plans by labeling them as “extreme” and the adherents to them as pushing themselves to become “too healthy” that it’s become unhealthy. Read this Boston Globe story below for more. Is our obsession with healthy eating out of control?: https://www.bostonglobe.com/magazine/2019/01/10/the-dark-side-dietary-dogma/tysBcIb3M2qwn42obPOmQI/story.html The notion that eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is somehow “too healthy” and “extreme” is completely laughable to health podcaster and international bestselling author of KETO CLARITY Jimmy Moore who says drinking double-digit cans of Coca-Cola, eating whole boxes of Little Debbie snack cakes, and consuming fast food everyday (all of which he did before he found keto) was the REAL extreme diet. Watch to hear Jimmy share passionately about how his healthier choices are far better than the truly extreme nonsense that was his nutrition when he was eating the Standard American Diet in this video.

1380: Dr. Jason Fung Progresses From Unlocking The Obesity Code To Diabetes In Latest Book

Toronto, Ontario-based nephrologist, clinical fasting expert, and international bestselling author Dr. Jason Fung is our guest today in Episode 1380 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”  Dr. Jason Fung forever changed the way we think about obesity with his best-selling book, The Obesity Code. Now he has set out to do the same for type 2 diabetes with his brand new release The Diabetes Code. Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease—a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease. The only way to treat type 2 diabetes effectively, he argues, is proper dieting and intermittent fasting—not medication. Listen in today as Jimmy talks to Dr. Fung about his new book about diabetes, his tips for reversing diabetes, what the medical establishment gets wrong about this disease, why treatments with insulin are actually making the problem worse, the role of diet and fasting in treating diabetes, and much more.

1582: Best Of, Dr. Jason Fung Says Controlling Insulin Is The Key To Unlocking The Obesity Code

While Jimmy is gone on a much needed and deserved sabbatical for six months to rest and recuperate, we will be bringing you the best of the best from the vast archive of shows that Jimmy has accumulated over the last 15 years. We also will be airing shows from his wildly popular JIMMY RANTS live show that originated on Instagram Live and now resides at JimmyRants.com. Paid advertisement “The problem is that you can’t really go up on protein alone so if you eat less fat you must go up on carbohydrate.” – Dr. Jason Fung Paid advertisement Weight loss is so incredibly hard as anyone who has tried to make it happen can attest. Part of the problem is the way we have been treating obesity and Type 2 diabetes is almost entirely wrong. Weight gain and the development of obesity is controlled by the hormone insulin and the insulin resistance that is created from chronically elevated levels of insulin. This is something a Toronto, Ontario-based nephrologist and author named Dr. Jason Fung from IntensiveDietaryManagement.com recognized a very long time ago in treating his patients dealing with the frustration of stubborn pounds that refuse to come off. Now he has outlined the principles he uses with his own patients in a provocative new book entitled The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung discuss the concepts in his latest book while previewing their upcoming joint collaboration on the subject of fasting in late 2016 called Fasting Clarity: The Definitive Guide to Healing Your Body Through Intermittent and Extended Fasting.

Be sure to bookmark JimmyRants.com as dig through all of the content there during Jimmy’s time away. Paid advertisement “There are some incredible people out there who should be sharing what they are learning along their journey.” Jimmy Moore Health and weight loss marketing hinges on the crafty illusion that how a person looks on the outside with thin bodies, six-pack abs, and sex appeal determines the veracity of any given diet plan. If the people promoting a specific diet look good, then the assumption is that it is a way of eating worth doing to shed some pounds and make you healthier. But health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore says this kind of imagery is merely a facade and doesn’t tell the whole story when it comes to a healthy nutrition plan like keto because people who eat this way start at various stages in life that can make it easier or more difficult depending on the circumstance. Paid advertisement Listen today as Jimmy, who openly discusses having extra weight on his body as a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet advocate, shares why the perception that only people with perfect Adonis bodies are allowed to talk about nutritional ketosis is completely insane in this episode.

We believed that fat was the problem with obesity, but biology is not so straight forward.” Dr. Mark Hyman Paid advertisement The role of dietary fat as part of a healthy nutritional health plan is undergoing a massive shift over the past few years. All the most current research is showing that the fears most people have had about real food-based fats being a contributing factor in obesity, heart disease, and diabetes is simply not true. Now one of the biggest names in the world of health is standing up in support of a high-fat diet. His name is Dr. Mark Hyman from DrHyman.com and he is one of the most recognized media doctors for his work as the Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine and founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center. Dr. Hyman has authored a string of bestselling books and now he’s back in 2016 with what is arguably his most important book yet entitled Eat Fat, Get Thin: Why the Fat We Eat Is the Key to Sustained Weight Loss and Vibrant Health. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hyman discuss why fat isn’t harmful to health, why foods like eggs, butter, nuts, avocados, and coconut are actually very healthy, why low-fat diets have been such a disaster for health, why this was a difficult but much-needed book for him to write, how meat fits into a healthy diet, and a whole lot more!

1595: Are We Eating Too Many Unhealthy Foods Or Not Enough Healthy Ones?

“Vegetable oils are anything but good for you! These raise inflammation more than anything except carbohydrates.” – Jimmy Moore We all know people who make some pretty bad choices in their diet that will eventually catch up to them in their health. From sugary soda, fast food, and refined carbohydrates like sugar and grains, what you eat matters. Now, though, a new study claims what you are NOT eating probably matters even more. Read more in the CNN story below. What we aren’t eating is killing us, global study finds: https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/03/health/diet-global-deaths-study/index.html Their idea of what’s considered “healthy,” though, is far from it according to health podcaster and international bestselling author of KETO CLARITY Jimmy Moore. He says the study’s conclusion that eating too much salt, not enough whole grains, and not enough fruit were the leading reasons for disease and death is just silly without any solid evidence to support it. Listen to hear Jimmy share more about the major flaws in this new study that was funded by vegan billionaire Bill Gates in this episode.
