    New Study Explains Why LDL Cholesterol Goes Up For Some Eating Low-Carb

    New Study Explains Why LDL Cholesterol Goes Up For Some Eating Low-Carb

    Join Jimmy today for a brand new Jimmy Makes Science Simple as he tackles the often misunderstand concept of why LDL cholesterol goes up for some people when they start eating low-carb.
     
    “Is high LDL-C cholesterol harmful in lean mass hyper-responders?”
     - Jimmy Moore
    In this episode, Jimmy features a study that was published in the November 2021 issue of the journal Current Developments in Nutrition entitled “Elevated LDL-Cholesterol with a Carbohydrate-restricted Diet: Evidence for a ‘Lean Mass Hyper-responder’ Phenotype’.” One of the contributing researchers on this paper is Dr. David Ludwig along with Dr. Nicholas Norwitz, Adrian Soto-Mota, Dr. Tro Kalayjian, and science-minded layperson Dave Feldman who was the one who came up with the lean mass hyper-responders hypothesis with low-carb diets that noticed the pattern of excessively high LDL-C levels despite high HDL-C, low triglycerides, and low BMI. It’s a truly fascinating paper for those of you who have experienced significant elevations in your LDL cholesterol despite spectacular numbers across the board in the rest of your lipid panel. Get the full details on this study in today’s episode!

    Kat Owens Combats The Lie That The Bible Pushes Plant-Based Eating

    Kat Owens Combats The Lie That The Bible Pushes Plant-Based Eating

    Join Jimmy today as he welcomes Kat Owens to talk about combating the lie that the Bible pushes plant-based eating.
    “I recommend to people to look into buying meat in bulk. I buy half a cow at a time.”
     - Kat Owens
     
    In this episode, Jimmy chats with his friend and Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner named Kat Owens (@low.carb.with.kat). As a low-carb animal foods fan and FNTP, it would be easy to chat with Kat about the finer points of nutrient density, digestion, and the endocrine system. But she wanted to talk about an interesting topic, especially for people of faith–does the Bible recommend consuming a plant-based diet as the ideal way to eat? This has been a common belief that Biblical eating is closer to vegetarian and vegan than it is keto and carnivore. Is this true? Tune in to hear Kat’s take on this controversial subject!

    Ludwig Carnivore Diet Study Shows Health Benefits And High Satisfaction

    Ludwig Carnivore Diet Study Shows Health Benefits And High Satisfaction

    Join Jimmy today for a brand new Jimmy Makes Science Simple as he tackles the Ludwig Carnivore Diet Study.
    “The problem is that they started using insulin to treat not only type-1 diabetes, but also type-2 diabetes.”
     - Jimmy Moore

    In this episode, Jimmy features a study that was published in the November 2021 issue of the journal Current Developments in Nutrition entitled “Behavioral Characteristics and Self-Reported Health Status among 2029 Adults Consuming a ‘Carnivore Diet’.” One of the contributing researchers on this paper is Dr. David Ludwig who has been pumping out quite a few positive studies on ketogenic and carnivore diets over the past few years. They wanted to know what impact an animal foods-based diet is having on people who choose to eat that way in terms of their health and satisfaction among 2029 study participants. Don’t miss Jimmy’s full breakdown of this study and why it’s good news for fans of keto and carnivore diets!

    Kira Kellerman Rebelliously Pushes Back Against Failed Medical Advice

    Kira Kellerman Rebelliously Pushes Back Against Failed Medical Advice

    On today’s episode of the LLVLC Show, Jimmy welcomes Kira Kellerman to talk about pushing back against failed medical advice.
    “I’m really glad I had the courage to say F. O. to all the doctors who didn’t help me get better!”
    - Kira Kellerman
    In this episode, Jimmy talks to a good friend of his named Kira Kellerman (@kirochka13s) who went through the wringer and back with the medical system when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2008. After getting progressively worse and worse and developing other conditions like eczema and obesity, Kira was told by her doctors that she would have to live like this taking increasing amounts of medications for the rest of her life. But that wasn’t the life she wanted and she grabbed back control of her own health in 2018 trying the keto diet and then shifting over into a carnivore diet where she is now thriving in her health. Don’t miss this inspiring message of hope from a brave and rebellious woman willing to push back against failed medical advice.

    AHA Harvard Study Distorts Stroke Risk From Fat Consumption

    AHA Harvard Study Distorts Stroke Risk From Fat Consumption

    “Can you remember everything you ate over the last year, two years, FOUR YEARS? The average person has no idea.”
     - Jimmy Moore
     
    In this episode, Jimmy kicks off the new year by doing one of his favorite things–breaking down a new study in nutritional health. This one was presented at the American Heart Association’s 2021 Scientific Sessions in November and it’s a doozy with a radical claim. According to this so-called study, the researcher say that consuming non-dairy animal fat will increase your risk of stroke by 16% and that choosing vegetable fat sources (aka seed oils like canola, soybean, and corn oil) will lower your risk of stroke by 12%. Tune in to hear Jimmy expose the major flaws in this research and why it’s actually just a big yawner. Got a new study you want Jimmy to feature on a future podcast? Email him the link to livinlowcarbman@charter.net.

Real

Jimmy, I love how you don’t mind at all showing the human downfalls and temptations as well as the successes of our food choices. Your shows are informative and fun to listen to. I have enjoyed every episode and come away inspired.

Great podcast

Great long running podcast. But Jimmy, the expression is “one fell swoop”, not “one swell foop.” 😆 I cringe every time I hear it.
Keep up the great content!

Here’s the problem

Guys - the problem with the keto diet and lack of uptake is simple: the RIDICULOUS emphasis on fat consumption. It us simply unnecessary. Fat bombs were the death of keto as soon as it was morphed from Atkins. This, and the fact that most people go to conventional MDs who do not endorse this way if eating. Period.
