Low-Carb Conversations
Low-Carb Conversations features conversations with co-hosts Leah Williamson, Kara Halderman and a variety of voices in the Low-Carb, Paleo and Real Food movements, expressing many different points of view.

But don't worry--they'll both be back with many more fascinating and interesting guest friends in 2015 who will be ready to take on the health headlines each and every Friday.

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!

So many new people are finding this podcast and sharing with us how much they love hearing viewpoints that match up with what they believe regarding all the latest health headlines that are out there in our culture.

14 Things People Probably Do Not Want To Know About Their Favorite Foods

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by a registered dietitian who also happens to be a cattle rancher in Montana named Stacey Hughes from "Hughes Mountain Ranch" as well as a wise-beyond-her-years 19-year old nutritional health blogger named Tess Forneris from "Hold The Grain" who needed to eliminate gluten and grains from her diet after being diagnosed with POTS syndrome, EDS and gastroparesis which was all healed through the power of real food. Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Stacey, and Tess share their thoughts about a new paper from Canadian researchers published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism calling for an end to dietary guidelines recommending removing saturated fat for health reasons, the recent FDA approval of a new weight loss pill called Contrave, a Type 1 diabetic sharing a pessimistic column about what she thinks is the fallacy of being able to control the disease through nutrition, 14 mysterious things food manufacturers are doing to our food supply that we probably don't know about (or want to know about!), a new study explaining why diabetics are more susceptible to cardiovascular issues, the trade-off people coming off of drug addiction make turning to sugar and processed carbohydrates as their new addiction, another one of those "you-can't-cut-out-a-whole-food-group" articles, and an intriguing look at the role hunger plays in your personality and relationships. Plus, don't miss Tess' Breakfast Pizza recipe as well as some nutrition tips from our illustrious panel. Now, you know what to do next--pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are joined by someone who is such a great gabber that he could handle being our only guest friend in an engineer from New York named Gerard Pinzone from "The not-so-dangerous adventures of an autodidact" blog where you will find low-carb ice cream recipes galore.

Plus, don't miss Gerard's EXCLUSIVE low-carb ice cream recipe (he will be sharing on his blog soon) and Cassie fat bombs recipe from Keto Clarity at the end of the show.
