Sit back, relax with a kale juice and enjoy this week’s episode!

GMOs as safe as conventional food, beneficial for farmers — scientists

 

Quarter of millennials have absolutely no interest in cookery

 

 

This week on Low Carb Conversations, Diana Rodgers shares information her new documentary called, “Kale Vs. Cow: The Case for Better Meat". Kale Vs. Cow is the brainchild of Diana Rodgers of Sustainable Dish, a real food dietician living on a working organic farm. The film focuses on the most vilified of farm animals, the cow, ultimately making the case that eliminating animals from our food system will cause more harm than good.  Contrary to popular media messages that demonize beef, well-managed cattle are one of our best chances at improving soil health and sequestering carbon. Red meat is also a superfood, rich in high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals. Red meat is not the enemy.

Diana needs your help! Support Kale vs. Cow’s crowdfunding campaign here!

 

Diana, Kara and Leah discuss an article where by a conference in the Philippines stated that GMO's where in fact, safe.  What do you think?  Then they discuss an article about Millennial's and how they just don't seem to see the need to cook these days.  Do you fall in that category?

And do you have a beef with our secret health headline?

It's Not Your Fault — Junk Food is Twice as Distracting as Healthy Food

 

This week on Low Carb Conversations Dr. Glenn Livingston and Rachel Peterson are here to share their health perspectives! Dr. Glenn Livingston is the Author of Never Binge Again (#1 on Kindle for Eating Disorders). As part of his own journey from obesity, 'exercise bulemia' and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food, Dr Livingston created a unique and unorthodox methodology for helping people to change the mindset behind the behaviors. With it, he helps restore free will, empowering people out from under feeling enslaved to certain foods and triggers.

Rachel Peterson is a Primal Health Coach and lifestyle blogger from Austin, Tx. She’s passionate about thyroid and autoimmune health, loves dreaming up healthy delicious recipes and wants to lend support to others going through their own health journeys. Check out her blog! 

Rachel, Glenn, Leah and Kara discuss a new study connecting eating disorders to autoimmune disease. So what came first: autoimmunity or the eating disorder? Listen to the gusts discuss their opinions! The second article is a study showing we are hard wired to seek out high-calorie junk food from survival instincts. But how do they advise dealing with that? Moderation. See what Glenn and Rachel have to say about that on this week's episode!

And remember our secret health headline!

Sit back, relax and listen with some avocado toast while Leah and Kara talk with health experts on the latest health headlines!

The totally unsexy path to healthy eating (and why we’re not following it)

 

Someone has gone and invented diet avocados

 

Learn more about Robyn's amazing turn around from guttate psoriasis through functional nutrition and Lisa's bio-individual approach to her thriving practice in Los Angeles.

Lisa, Robyn, Kara and Leah discuss an article surrounding moderation, that proposes moderation is the true key to health and success. But with so many different views on what eating "moderately" means, how can that be true? The main points from the article are: extreme diets create all or nothing mentality and unhealthy relationships with food easily persuade audiences. Lisa and Robyn break it all down, and discuss if moderation is truly the answer.

Ready for low fat avocados? Leah reads a shocking health headline about new avocados being sold in Spain that have 30% fat. What?! If you're thinking what we're thinking, head on over and listen to the response.

The 15 foods scientists claim will ward off hunger pangs and keep your diet on track

Melanie talks about how keto gave her her life back, and eventually went on to start Keto Academy with the one and only Jimmy Moore!

Leah, Kara, Melanie and Mandy first discuss a headline related to finances to physical health. Mandy gives examples of how addressing the cause of your stress can resolve the physical symptoms in your life; and gives tangible tips to getting your finances on track. Melanie talks about how she sees stress related illness in her practice all the time and ways to deflect the stress.

Leah then reads a conflicting article about which foods are best for warding off hunger. The article pushes that amino acids from animal protein provide the most satiating affect, yet recommends a plant based diet simultaneously. See what they had to say about that one!

Natalee explains a past of depression, miscarriage, corporate burnout and an Autoimmune condition Arthritis Ankylosing Spondylitis where she was told her spine would fuse and her eventual fate could possibly be a wheelchair. One day she became inspired to take life into her own hands through diet, exercise and mindset and never looked back.

Kara, Leah, Jessica and Natalee discuss that scandal in the paleo world that is Pete Evans new documentary, "The Magic Pill." Doctors absolutely slammed Evans for saying switching to a real foods diet can aid in treating chronic health conditions. Evan's talks about how grains effect the gut and a ketogenic diet can be beneficial for seizure patients. Unfortunately, the Australian Medical Association found this utterly insulting. Are they being too harsh, or is there validity to Evans' claims? Transitioning into the second article was based around sleep. A new study shows that poor sleep can increase obesity and being overweight. Jessica and Natalee dissect just how vital sleep can be for our metabolism and over all health. You don't want to miss it!
