IS THIS WOMAN QUALIFIED TO BE BELGIUM'S HEALTH MINISTER?

Is she too fat to be a Health Minister?

In today's special extended final-show-of-2014 episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by another one of Cassie's all-star clients Jean Burke (she doesn't have a website or social media to connect with her) as well as a Vancouver, Washington-based nutritional therapy practitioner named Daniele Della Valle from "Skinny Girl Eats Fat" who is a bona fide foodie who had to overcome some nagging food sensitivity and digestive issues that were plaguing her health thanks to a low-carb, high-fat diet.

BRITA'S CREATIVE NEW SUGAR BUILDINGS AD

Brita's "Sugar Buildings" Ad

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Jean and Daniele give their thoughts and opinions about whether the nearly 300-pound new Health Minister of Belgium is the right choice for that position, why The Chocolate Milk Diet is probably a very bad idea, the supposed list of eight carbs that you should be eating, push back from some scientists about the recent pro-fat studies, a new marketing ad from Brita pointing to the shocking sugar content in sugary soda, why hearkening back to the lifestyle habits of our grandparents could fix food allergies, whether cooking, cooling and then reheating pasta turns it into a resistant starch, an insightful op-ed column from the incredible Kelly Coffey (gotta get her on as a guest friend in 2015!) about the way we perceive ourselves in this weight and health journey, and a column that asks whether we should all be eating more fat in our diet. This special extended episode of the podcast ends with some great health tips from our guest friends. So, for one last time in 2014, pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

ARE SAVVY CONSUMERS FORCING FOOD COMPANIES TO CHANGE?

Controversial Ingredient To Be Removed From Silk Beverages

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie welcome two extraordinary guest friends to help them opine on the health headlines today, including a Type 1 diabetics who uses a real foods-based ketogenic Paleo nutritional approach to control her disease named Katie Coleman from the "Keep It Real Food Co." and Dr. Jim Small from "The PaleoPathologist" who is a medical pathologist and a former professor who discovered the personal health benefits that come from of a low-carb Paleo lifestyle change. At the beginning of today's episode, Jimmy asked Cassie to explain what she means by her "PFC Balanced" philosophy in response to quite a few concerned e-mails he has received from listeners who were confused about how that fits within a low-carb or Paleo diet. During today's episode, we also shared about Cassie's new video series which you can see a sample of below:

CASSIE'S FABULOUS NEW PFC CLUB EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS:

Update on the PFC Club!

Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Katie and Dr. Jim talk about the Silk Beverage company making the decision to remove the carrageenan from their products after consumers demanded it, the implications of that 15-ton "fatberg" that was removed from the London sewer recently, the wisdom of the marketing strategy being used by Olive Garden promoting 7 weeks of unlimited pasta for $100, the impact of consuming Ramen noodles on heart disease, diabetes, and stroke risk, the foolish decision by Eggland's Best to lower the fat and calories in their eggs by feeding the chickens a vegetarian diet, why school lunches in France are far superior to the ones provided to American kids, and an innovative new treatment modality one hospital is using feeding their patients real food grown from a garden on the hospital property. And don't miss Katie's Cauliflower Mac & Cheese as well as Dr. Jim's Breakfast Frittata and cast iron skillet cleaning tip at the end of the show.

Registered dietitian and Paleo diet health podcaster Kelsey Marksteiner and low-carb, high-fat weight loss success story and YouTube video star Bob Briggs join our hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie today in Episode 126 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

When Dietitian Cassie first joined this podcast as a guest friend way back in Episode 50, who knew that someday she would not only be a part of the history of "Low-Carb Conversations," but would play such an integral role in its growth and success? It's been almost exactly two years since she took over as co-host from Mindy Noxon Iannotti to join Jimmy Moore each week looking at the health headlines and she has done such an amazing job in her role that she warrants being a part of the name of the show, too. This is the big announcement we said we were going to make today and here it is: the name of this podcast is changing to "Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore, Dietitian Cassie & Friends!"

Cassie so deserves that equal billing with Jimmy for developing into one of the most knowledgeable, skilled health podcasters online today. We are all so proud of what she brings to this podcast through the education she has had in nutrition and the experience of working with thousands of clients to make them healthier than they could have ever imagined through her PFC balanced approach to diet. CONGRATULATIONS Dietitian Cassie and we look forward to hearing from you for many more years to come. We are a listener-supported podcast, so CLICK HERE if you want to hear Cassie and Jimmy continue to bring you new episodes of this weekly podcast. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

These are exciting times for those of us who believe in the healthy low-carb lifestyle.

We've been chronicling all of these changes here on this podcast providing you with weekly updates on all that's happening in the wonderful world of health. It remains our passionate desire to give you quality news and views from some of the leading voices in the Paleo and low-carb community each and every Friday, so won't you join us in keeping this mission alive and well? CLICK HERE and make a donation to this listener-supported podcast so we can continue to do this for many more years to come.

Coke Confronts Its Big Fat Problem

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by two truly amazing guest friends who actually both found Paleo through the Whole30 in a San Francisco Bay Area Certified Nutrition Consultant with a fascinating story of overcoming alcohol and smoking addiction named Susan McCauley at "Evolve Nutrition" and an amateur triathlete who was diagnosed with a debilitating condition called "Glycogen Storage Disease Type V" (also known as McArdle's Disease) and discovered the amazing health benefits that come from eating a ketogenic Paleo diet named Dane DeValcourt (Dane's story is featured in Jimmy's new book Keto Clarity). Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Susan, and Dane give their thoughts about that new low-carb vs. low-fat diet study funded by the National Institutes of Health that published this week, why there is danger to your health when you don't consume ENOUGH salt in your diet, the desperation by companies like Coca-Cola to revive their brand that has been built on sugary sodas, another vascular surgeon coming out in opposition to statin medications, an op-ed from a frustrated chef who doesn't think customers should be making so many menu substitutions without a disease requiring it, a registered dietitian (and it's not Cassie!) sharing why saturated fats and cholesterol are not harmful to consume, and why school districts are making the decision to drop the new federal "healthy" school lunch guidelines because they're just not working. Plus, don't miss Susan's amazingly ketogenic-friendly Rosemary Thyme Butter recipe and Dane's high-fat tip at the end of the show. It's time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

- RECIPE: Vivica's Supercharged Mineral Chicken Broth

Merlin's Stupidly Easy Spicy Mayonnaise
1 whole egg
3/4 cup Avocado Oil
1 tbsp Frank's Red Hot sauce (get the original, all of the new variants have crappy additives in them. the original is just cayenne peppers, vinegar, water, salt and garlic)

Crack the egg into a glass bowl, add the oil and hot sauce. Place a stick or immersion blender directly over the egg yolk. Blend on High. When you see the emulsion coming out from the sides of the blender, stir it around to incorporate the oil and hot sauce. See? Stupidly Easy!

Here's a YouTube video of Merlin's wife Lindsay showing the method:
