Listen in as Cassie, Aglaee, Kyle, and Julia give their take on the latest health headlines, including the 9 foods an athlete would never eat, the Coca-Cola ad that was banned in the UK for being misleading, the negative implications of consuming gluten on brain health (explained well in the YouTube video "The Truth About Gluten"), how exercise can be used therapeutically to minimize stress in your life, and a wonderful TEDx Youth talk by Dr. Katherine Reid called "UnBlind My Mind: What Are We Eating?" Plus, don't miss Julia sharing two of her sensational recipes--3-Layered Paleo Shepherd’s Pie and Easy Egg McNothin’.

Paleo bloggers Juli Bauer and Julia Colling join our host Dietitian Cassie along with guest co-host and fellow registered dietitian Laura Schoenfeld today in Episode 97 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

 

It's been over three months since our last episode of "Low-Carb Conversations" and we've so missed being here with you discussing and dissecting all the latest health headlines. Jimmy Moore is away writing his next book coming on August 5, 2014 entitled Keto Clarity: Unleash The Health Benefits Of The Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet that is sure to follow in the bestselling footsteps of his 2013 release Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? (the audiobook version will be available within the next few weeks). Just as we did while Jimmy was away last year with his book, we'll be featuring some guest co-hosts filling the chair with Dietitian Cassie over the next few months (except for our epic Episode 100 that you won't want to miss coming up on Friday, February 28, 2014--MORE DETAILS ON THAT SOON!).

Don't forget we are a listener-supported podcast and rely on your donations to keep the episodes coming throughout 2014. We're incredibly thankful for the support of our enthusiastic fans and would be honored to have you join that group who provides us a financial donation if you benefit from this podcast. CLICK HERE for a quick and easy way to send $1, $5, $20 or even $100 towards the costs of making the magic of "Low-Carb Conversations" happen on a weekly basis. THANK YOU FOR YOU SUPPORT!

With Jimmy away, Cassie invited on one of her fellow RDs to join her in today's episode in the amazing Laura Schoenfeld from the "Ancestralize Me" blog and a staff nutritionist at ChrisKresser.com. She and Cassie chatted about this blog post from Laura explaining the flaws in that U.S. News & World Report ranking of diets that released last month as well as a SheKnows news story that quoted Cassie responding to what U.S. News considers a "healthy" diet. When you get two real food RDs this riled up, it must be an important topic of discussion!

Cassie and Laura are joined by two incredible guest friends in Juli Bauer from the "PaleOMG" blog and author of the cookbook OMG. That's Paleo? and Julia Visser from "Jules' Fuel." This fabulous female foursome had a great time sharing their opinions about some recent health headlines, including four reasons why you shouldn't go on a low-carb diet, more commentary on the U.S. News & World Report 2014 diet rankings, the critical role saturated fat should play within the context of a healthy diet, the World Health Organization (WHO) deciding to pull back the curtain on the health impact of sugar, seven practical ways to begin reducing the amount of carbohydrate in your diet, and so much more! Plus, everyone's favorite segment with delicious new low-carb recipes is back at the end of today's show. I know it's been a while, but you know what to do--pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk about it!
