Thank you so much for helping us make this podcast a weekly excursion into what's right and what's wrong about the current state of nutrition, fitness and health by taking a closer look at the various health headlines that are making news. It can feel lonely out there when you think your low-carb or Paleo lifestyle isn't accepted by anyone in your circle of friends and family, so we try to fill in that gap by providing this show as a solace of comfort, encouragement and reassurance that you are on the right path to being optimally well even when the rest of the world thinks you're nuts for eating this way.

THIS WEEK'S SECRET HEADLINE (our brand new SH segment)

Burger King launching lower-calorie french fry called 'Satisfries'

Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are joined this week by two outstanding guest friends. They are ketogenic lifestyle coach Freda Mooncotch from the "Defying Age With Food" blog and a San Diego, CA-based naturopathic physician named Dr. Kelly Austin from "Prime Wellness." Listen in as these four share their thoughts and opinions about the idiocy of the new "Satisfries" product from Burger King (and why they are NOT a healthier version of French fries for people to consume), the age-old debate of whether the quantity of calories matters more than the quality of calories, how Dunkin Donuts is attempting to make their famous high-carb offerings better for those with gluten sensitivity, the end of the world-famous Rice Diet center in North Carolina because of the rise in popularity of low-carb diets, the growing trend that more and more families are skipping the bread with their evening meals prepared at home, a much-needed debate of ideas from Harvard health experts about why obesity rates continue to go up and up, and a whole lot more! We've got some gabbers on here today, so be sure to soak it all in. It's time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk about it!

Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are stoked to have two more fabulous guest friends from the low-carb blogging world joining them today in Singapore-based low-carb, high-fat fan Ilona Kasza from the "Big Fat Blog" and 22-year old real food-based low-carber and college student David Pickholtz from the "My Low Carb College Kitchen" blog.

Dr. Oz's 500-Calorie Fast Food Meals

You're not going to want to miss the response to this! Listen in as Jimmy, Cassie, Ilona and David opine on the health headlines, including how researchers try to extrapolate information about high-fat diets on humans from a study on mice, the absurdity of a new research study claiming offering donuts as an incentive for exercising is a good thing, why the interpretation of what constitutes a "quality" diet is important when the subject is pancreatic cancer, whether sugar should have a warning label attached to it or not, new research showing drinking coffee and cutting carbohydrates in your diet can reduce endometrial cancer, the rising online doctor visit trend for cost savings, and so much more!

Paleo, gluten-free, low-carb blogger Carol Lovett and professional chef and health blogger Camille Macres join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in Episode 90 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

It just feels right having this show back on the air again over the past few weeks dissecting all the latest health headlines out there in the mainstream world to see what kind of messages they are communicating with an unsuspecting public. Yes, we are the great exception to the rule when it comes to reading through the typical editorializing that goes on even in the midst of reporting on scientific studies on diet and health. Make no mistake about it, conventional wisdom on these subjects still rules the day--but we're getting closer and closer to making the messages we communicate on this podcast a part of the debate of ideas...and that's exciting stuff! We need podcasts like "Low-Carb Conversations" to solidify in the minds of listeners what to think about these critical issues that are important to attaining a healthy lifestyle so that they can keep sharing this alternative information to the people within their circle of friends and family who need to hear it the most.

No matter how much you know and believe in the concepts of healthy low-carb, Paleo living, it's nice to have a place of solace, encouragement and reinforcement to help you in this journey. If you'd like to see that continue, then won't you consider making a donation to help us continue to provide a weekly critical look at the health headlines that dominate our modern-day culture. We've been incredibly grateful for the support that so many of you have given us in the past couple of months, but we have tens of thousands more listeners who could help us keep going strong in the months and years to come if most of you shared a very modest donation as little as $5 to carry on. If you like the show and want to keep hearing more of it, isn't it worth a small seed of investment now to reap big dividends in changed lives down the road? CLICK HERE if you want to help us make that dream a reality. THANK YOU FOR YOU SUPPORT!

Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie are thrilled to welcome in a dynamic couple of beautiful peeps to join them in the studio today (it's "Jimmy and the babes"!), including Paleo, gluten-free, low-carb blogger Carol Lovett from the "Ditch The Wheat" blog (author of the Paleo-friendly e-cookbook Indulge: 70 Grain-Free Desserts) as well as professional chef and health blogger Camille Macres from the "Recipe Rx" blog (author of the creatively-titled Paleogasm: 150 Grain, Dairy and Sugar-free Recipes That Will Leave You Totally Satisfied and Begging for More). Listen in as they take on some fascinating health topics, including the sudden rise in Type 2 diabetes that has hit 114 million people in the (rice-loving!) country of China, a confused health advocacy specialist on the subject of carbohydrates, a critical blog post of Paleo, low-carb and primal living with specific digs at Mark Sisson and several others from the ancestral community, a recent paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that calls for an end to the diet debates (wishful thinking!), a mainstream column knocking the health halo off of smoothies and fruit juice (FINALLY!), the absurdity of the cholesterol-lowering food products that are marketed to consumers these days, and so much more! This is a fun episode today that we KNOW you're gonna love, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

CAMILLE'S BLAT OMELET WITH GARLIC AIOLI RECIPE

Serves 2

BLAT, if you’re not familiar, stands for BACON-LETTUCE-AVOCADO-TOMATO, and is typically an upgrade to the famous BLT sandwich. Here’s my take using eggs, glorious eggs! This is the best low-carb breakfast on the block.

6 eggs
1/4 cup chopped green onions
Butter, for cooking eggs
6 slices applewood smoked bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
2 avocados, diced small
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Spike or other seasoned salt
1 cup arugula
2 tablespoons Balsamic Reduction (Trader Joe’s and some other markets carry a Balsamic Glaze if you want to skip this step)

Heat a 9-10 inch skillet on medium-high heat. Add about a teaspoon of butter. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Add half of the eggs to the hot pan and sprinkle with green onion, salt, and pepper. Turn to low and cover, allowing the steam to cook the top of the egg. You can get crazy and try to flip it, but you risk breaking it. Toss avocado, tomatoes, and arugula with lemon and seasoned salt. When top cooked, remove from pan and add bacon, and salad. Fold over, slice in half, drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve with a dollop of aioli.

Health blogger and medical school student Kris Gunnars and corporate registered dietitian Paul Krieger join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in this special cholesterol-focused Episode 87 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

It's been a little while since we've been on the air, but we're back with a bang today here on "Low-Carb Conversations" celebrating the long-awaited release of Jimmy's brand new book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? (also available in Kindle e-book) with a special edition of the show dedicated solely to health headlines that deal with the subject of cholesterol. And in addition to our fabulous co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie, we are pleased to welcome two highly-qualified guests to take on such a complex topic--returning guest friend and medical school student Kris Gunnars from the "Authority Nutrition" blog and registered dietitian Paul Kriegler from "Lifetime WeightLoss." Listen to them take on these cholesterol health headlines along with Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie, including why cholesterol and saturated fat are not the enemy, the role of statin medications in the treatment of cholesterol, the shocking information about cholesterol communicated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in a 2013 pamphlet, the new knowledge we have about cholesterol, former President George W.

Weight loss and health blogger Justin "Dez" Dessonville and registered dietitian/real foodie Mary Trenda join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in Episode 86 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

AUDIO

After taking off last week for the Independence Day holiday, we're back today with what could quite possibly be our final episode of "Low-Carb Conversations." Because we are a listener-supported show, we need the donations of listeners like YOU to help keep it going. While a lot of people are loving the weekly look at the health headlines of the day from a real food, low-carb, Paleo outlook we provide on this podcast, the reality is we're not getting the financial support we need to keep this show on the air as often as we'd like. To that end, we'll be taking the next few weeks off to see if interest begins to pick up enough for us to return to the air in August. If not, then this will sadly be the final episode. Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie DEFINITELY want the show to stay alive and continue providing a sane voice of reason in response to the absurdity that tends to happen with health headlines. CLICK HERE if you want to keep hearing "Low-Carb Conversations" in the months and years to come! Your donation of ANY amount is greatly appreciated.

Today we are pleased to welcome an inspiring weight loss success story in Justin Dessonville from the "I Am Dez" blog and registered dietitian and real food advocate Mary Trenda from the "Considering You" blog to chime in with Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie on the various headlines making news in the world of health, including what's behind the new proclamation from the so-called health "experts" that omega-6-rich vegetable oils are healthy, why triglycerides are a much bigger deal than total cholesterol in heart disease, a closer look at why carbohydrates are a culprit in disease, a new study showing the Atkins diet produces the best long-term weight loss success, how marketing foods as "healthy" has actually led to even more obesity and disease, the paradoxical use of high-fat foods in an effective weight loss plan, a public health professor's one-week low-carb diet experiment and so much more! Now it's time (perhaps for the final time) to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

Laura's Sauced Pork Chops
Over medium-high heat, place pork chops seasoned with salt and pepper in skillet and cook about 4 minutes each side depending on thickness. Make sure skillet is hot so you can get a good sear. When they're mostly done, remove and cover or put in warm oven.

De-glaze the pan with chicken stock, bone broth, or white wine and scrape up all the bits at the bottom of the pan. Reduce to a simmer and whisk about 1 1/2-2 Tbs of Dijon mustard into about 1/3 cup of heavy cream and then dump that into the pan. The sauce will thicken up in a minute or two and just pour it on top of the meat and steamed veggies.
