Low-Carb Conversations features conversations with host Leah Williamson, NTP and a variety of voices in the Low-Carb, Keto, Paleo and Real Food movements, expressing many different points of view.

Jimmy Moore and his new co-host Dietitian Cassie keep the good times rolling in Episode 58 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends with even more stimulating topics for our prestigious panel to bat around ripped straight from the latest health headlines of the day. THANK YOU to so many of you for your encouraging feedback about the addition of Dietitian Cassie as the new co-host of the show. Her registered dietitian credentials certainly make her contributions that much more valuable and we are so grateful to have her on as part of the "Low-Carb Conversations" team now.

We appreciate all of your loving support.

This week is a load of fun as we welcome two truly AMAZING guest friends, including Holly Morello from "The Paleo Blog Of Yay" and George Bryant from the "Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations" blog. They did a spectacular job chiming in with Jimmy and Cassie on a wide variety of hot health topics, including that recent study showing high normal blood sugar levels can make you a pea-brain, the late Michael Clarke Duncan's tragic death from a myocardial infarction in July that took place three years after he began a vegan diet, controversy over Wheat Belly author Dr. William Davis calling wheat a "perfect, chronic poison," the new dietitian trend in grocery store marketing, an update on a Paleo diet blogger's (Steve Cooksey from the "Diabetes Warrior" blog) First Amendment lawsuit against dietitians in North Carolina who wanted to shut him down, a pro-dietary fat column out of Australia (where Jimmy will be doing a three-week speaking tour in November), even more good news for low-carb diets in a recent meta-analysis and an optimistic post by The Nutrition & Metabolism Society's Dr. Richard Feinman blog post on some exciting new evidence that low-carbohydrate nutrition is finally starting to penetrate into mainstream scientific research circles. And don't miss some truly delicious and nutritious recipes shared by Holly and George at the end of the show! You know what to do: pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk about it on the Virtual Porch!

We’ve got a fabulous show in store for you in Episode 49 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends with our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Mindy Noxon Iannotti rockin’ it with two more fabulous low-carb friends. If you missed the BIG NEWS last week that we’ve decided to go to a LISTENER-SUPPORTED format with this podcast, then I wanted to invite you to make a donation to help keep this show on the air. We were blown away by the outpouring of love and financial support after making this announcement last week and we are so grateful to each and every one of our incredible listeners who have told us how much this podcast means to them. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for helping us continue providing new episodes of “Low-Carb Conversations” and we’ve got another spectacular hour-long episode to share with you today!

We feature a Philadelphia, PA-based Paleo fitness expert named Roger Dickerman(who Jimmy met at PaleoFX in March) from Relentless Fitness and the Senior Nutritionist at the UK-based low-carb GoLower company Emily Maguire who works with the incredible low-carb advocate Hannah Sutter who Jimmy has interviewed previously on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” Listen in as our prestigious panel chimes in on the recent sugary soda ban in New York City, a new study that says being obese doesn’t necessarily mean you have heart health risks, a history lesson on how highly-processed omega-6-rich vegetable oils replaced natural animal fats, whether too much Vitamin D can be as problematic as too little, and the notion that once you’ve been fat people will always look at you as being fat. It’s a full slate of interesting topics for you today, so sit back, relax and enjoy the conversation!

NOTE: Apologies for the “rumble” during this podcast. We had a poor Skype connection with one of our guests. THANK YOU for your understanding!
