Low-Carb Conversations
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.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

 

This week Holly and Leah are back for a Co-Host Episode. Recently, Holly was astonished by the health advice random strangers were giving people on social media forums. It got us thinking whether Social media is an appropriate place to a) Ask such health questions and b) try the advice given from strangers. Where should one go to ask such questions if Social Media is not the place?

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

In this episode, Leah chats with Neuropsychiatrist and Author of the new book, The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond, by Dr. Louann Brizendine.

Dr Brizendine shares newly emerging information about women in the second half of life: during midlife, women’s brains are actually reshaped and “upgraded” in a way that creates new power, a bracing clarity, and a laser-like sense of purpose. Dr. Brizendine calls this process The Upgrade and argues that, if a woman knows how to step into her power and own her Upgrade, the second half of her life can be the better half.

Listen in as Leah and Dr Brizendine chat about the Transition (the period of time leading to The Upgrade). Dr Brizendine shares her research on tips on making The Transition to the Upgrade a better experience through mindset, nutrition, exercise, sleep and more. Dr Brizendine wishes for women experiencing this transition to experience more joy and serenity in their lives.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

 

In this episode, Holly Jean and Leah review their favorite moments from most recent previous episodes.

Breathing, digestion, and stress management go hand-in-hand! This week’s article is a look at how belly breathing could be the key to better digestion. Deep belly breathing can actually massage the contents of the gut helping move food through the body for better elimination. Tune in to hear more about this and tips on a non cost method that is essential to life!

When we activate the diaphragm with breath, it creates a gentle massaging action for internal organs like the intestines and stomach. In doing so, it can reduce abdominal pain, urgency, bloating, and constipation.

Diaphragmatic breathing, or deep breathing, does not take much more effort than standard breathing and is one of the best things you can do to help with digestion.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

In this episode, Holly Jean and Leah chat with Katie Beecher, Internationally known Medical and Emotional Intuitive and Licensed Professional Counselor with over 30 years of experience. Katie’s mission is to help as many people as possible connect to their intuitions, find unconditional love and self acceptance.

Katie has a new book out called, Heal from Within: A Guidebook to Intuitive Wellness, and she shares how to connect to your intuition to help guide and identify your physical and emotional key health issues. Using the chakras as a framework, Katie describes how we should make friends with illness instead of seeing it as enemy = the body is always trying to communicate with us and symptoms are its language.

This episode provides practical action items and key tips for connecting and understanding your body. We wrap up with a conversation about medical gaslighting and why people are often told there is nothing wrong with them. Gaslighting further complicates and compounds the lack of body wisdom and intuition, which further disconnects people from listening to their bodies and inner voice.

In this episode, Holly Jean and Leah chat with The Ketogenic Pharmacist Brian O’Halloran. Brian is a pharmacist of 20+ years and a Certified Ketogenic Nutrition Specialist. Often times, people think of their local pharmacist as a person who just fills prescriptions. Brian busts that myth and lets us know just how important, even critical, pharmacists are in the medical industry.

Brian is a bit of rogue pharmacist and wants to see his patients less by educating people about diet and lifestyle changes that can help them ditch the prescriptions all together. In this informative and interesting chat, we talk about:

  • Precautions when starting Low Carb/Keto diet if you are on medications
  • How to deal with Keto Flu
  • Why you must talk to your doctor about dietary changes and when you might want to find a new doctor

Connect with Brian on Instagram: @theketogenicpharmacist

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

In this episode, Leah and Holly Jean discuss contributing factors of autoimmune disease. For decades, doctors and researchers believed that autoimmune conditions were genetic, or hereditary, and even a normal side effect of the aging process. But as conditions are rising at alarming rates and the age of diagnosis is getting younger and younger, researchers are asking questions and exploring the reasons for autoimmune onset.

We take a look at nutrition and lifestyle factors in this episode and discuss whether or not the western diet is to blame. If nutrition and diet play a role in developing autoimmune disease, is it possible to use therapeutic diets to reverse symptoms and diagnosis? We explore all this and more, in this episode!

Welcome to a New Year. We are starting the year with Leah and Holly discussing a new article on the Body Positivity Movement and an article that suggests that the messaging of the movement is not always positive in terms of health results.

We all can agree that one should love the body they have, regardless the flaws we perceive it to have. But the messaging is getting messy when it comes to self love and acceptance and undisputed health facts. In this episode, Leah and Holly break down the pros and cons of body positivity.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our guest this week is the leading authority on Nutrition and Human metabolism Dr. Cate Shanahan. A board-certified Family Physician with over 20 years of clinical experience, and NY Times bestselling author of The FatBurn Fix, Deep Nutrition and Food Rules, her expertise is fixing the underlying problems that cause metabolic damage and inflammation, leading to autoimmunity, weight gain, diabetes, cancer and accelerated aging processes.

Dr. Cate discusses her philosophy on Nutrition and how it is more about what you should eat rather than what you should not. From her own experience with a mysterious illness, she learned, first hand, exactly how much she was not taught in medical school when it comes to health and nutrition. When she radically changed her diet, she started to recover. After years of study, she discovered a terrifying truth: Almost all of us live in a kind of medical experiment that feeds Big Agriculture and the Hospital and Health Insurance systems, who all benefit the sicker we get.

Did you know 60% of most diets are devoid of nutrition and full of toxins? You can not make healthy cells without nutrients and, on top of that, toxins deplete our nutrient stores even further. Dr. Cate talks about how lack of nutrition and consumption of toxins not only leads us down a disease pathway, but also expedites the aging process. She discusses her formula for anti-aging as well as what oils to cook with and what happens when you eat rancid fats.

Be sure to visit the resources link below – Dr. Cate has included some helpful downloads for our listeners, including The FatBurn Factor worksheet, which includes a self-assessment quiz, Hypoglycemia Assessment Worksheet, Snacking Assessment Worksheet, and Hunger Assessment Worksheet.

These resources are a useful introduction to the kinds of tools Dr. Cate uses in her own practice and that she built into the programs described in Deep Nutrition and The FATBURN Fix. By reading those books, you’ll be able to best exploit these tools to improve your metabolism and track its improvement.
You’ll be benefitting from the same strategies and techniques she has used to naturally optimize the health and performance of some of the top athletes in the world and thousands of patients who thought they would never be free of prescriptions.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

There is so much to consider when buying a new home – location, quality of local schools, number of bedrooms, structurally sound, investment potential, proximity to amenities – But what factors do people need to consider when moving, in regards to their health? Here to talk about just that, our guest this week is holistic-minded realtor and healthy move expert, Cristina Cappelli.

Cristina is an in-demand, sought after realtor who has made a name for herself by specializing in niche-market real estate for the health-conscious buyer. Cristina is educated and well-researched when it comes to Making Healthy Moves! Cell towers, superfund sites, access to healthy food and quality health practitioners, non-toxic landscaping, proximity to nature trails, etc., nothing is out of scope of consideration for her clients.

Health starts at home, it only makes sense that you consider health when buying a home or moving into your next home.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our guest this week is fellow FNTP Debbie Potts – Debbie is NASM Trainer, Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, health detective, athlete, and fellow podcaster.

In this episode, Debbie shares her insights and personal experiences as we discuss how low-carb and high-fat diets impact athletic performance, especially when it comes to endurance athletes.

Keeping with the athletic theme, we move on to talking about when and how to eat to fuel a workout. With so much “general” advice out there, we talk about the importance of bio-individuality and how listening to your body is the only way to find out the “right” way for you and your body needs.

This episode is for the occasional exerciser and the gym rat alike. Enjoy!

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our Guest this week is Dr Ken Berry. Dr Ken is a Board Certified Family Physician and Fellow in The American Academy of Family Physicians. He has  been practicing Family Medicine in rural Tennessee for over a decade, and has seen over 20,000 patients in his career so far. You might know him from his popular You Tube channel where he has videos about  low-carb/ketogenic/carnivore diets, intermittent fasting, thyroid health, hormone optimization and much more. He says he has declared all-out war on the epidemics of hyperinsulinemia, diabetes and obesity currently hurting our world, and hurting your health.

Dr. Berry leads us in a common sense discussion about health and the lies we are told by health care professionals. His personal transformation from a doctor who didn’t know any better when it came to nutrition, to his current role as a proper human diet nutrition advocate gives us insight and understanding into the reasons we are unhealthy as a nation and globally.

If you’ve been curious about intermittent fasting for weight loss or for skin health, you’ll want to hear this chat. The bottom line, insulin is a growth hormone! When insulin is present, things are growing – whether it’s your waistline or skin cells, it all stems from too much insulin or, chronic hyperinsulinemia. Listen in for Dr. Berry’s tips on how to get started with reducing insulin with intermittent fasting and meal spacing.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our guest today is Temple Stewart of The Ketogenic Nutritionist. Temple is a registered dietitian helping women lose weight with a ketogenic approach.

Dietician and Keto don’t normally go together but Temple shares her success with Keto and how the keto diet helped her reverse PCOS and improve fertility. Temple now helps other women improve their health, in sometimes hopeless situations, by using a therapeutic keto approach.

Our first article brings about an interesting discussion on the continuing rise in obesity and how the concerning issue is much deeper than any diet paradigm or as simple as the flawed calories in, calories out weight loss model. We then debunk a biased and un-researched article that refers to keto as a “disease promoting disaster”.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Have you been thinking about your health lately?

Perhaps it’s been weighing on your mind to put more focus on your health? Finally get “back on track” and take your nutrition and exercise seriously?

The very idea of changing your diet and hitting the gym can be daunting. Especially if you feel like you have a long way to go to reach your goals or if your schedule is already packed and you just don’t have time. 

No matter where you are, we are all sold the same lie –  that nutrition is complicated and that health is time consuming and difficult to achieve. Lies!! Achieving vibrant health is really quite simple. Industry has just over complicated it. 

It is not HARD to be healthy. Your body WANTS to be in good health. 

EVERYTHING YOUR BODY DOES IS TO KEEP YOU ALIVE- that is its main objective! 

All we have to do is not cause interference and give it the support it needs. 

This episode is Holly Jean’s masterclass “Building Resilience: Take Control of Your Health & Boost Immunity” 

In this episode, Holly shares the secrets to the FOUR RINGS OF HEALTH.

These aren’t really secrets, but it is information that you will not hear about on the news – it is information that is intentionally hidden from you. The news won’t teach you how to listen to your body or how to understand that symptoms have a root cause. The news won’t tell you that you already have everything you need to become your best, healthiest self. The television wants to scare you into believing that health comes from a pill or syringe or some trendy diet – I simply want to show you another way – a better way – a more effective way.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

We are back with our monthly Cohost Episode where we discuss guests from the past month:

#436 with Abby Durlewanger, House of Keto, #437 with Lucia Hawley, and #438 with Stephanie Reiter.

Then we have fun discussion common nutrition myths that are still taught in schools. We revisit the calories in, calories out model and ask the question, does too much protein cause kidney failure? Do you need to consume dairy to get enough calcium? Is the age-old advice that breakfast is the most important meal of the day accurate?

Tune in to listen to our discussion around all of these and more!

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our guest today is Stephanie Reiter, FNTP and Special Education Teacher. Stephanie joins us to share her personal insights and experiences in working with children in a school setting, witnessing, first hand, the impact of nutrition on attention and behavior.

Our conversation briefly takes the audience through the evolution of feeding children, starting 3000 years ago to modern times. How have school lunches changed since the turn of the 20th century? Is there room for improvement?

This is a timely back-to-school discussion that may get you thinking, and possibly inspire you to advocacy for change.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our guest today is Abby Durlewanger from House of Keto. Abby started keto in 2017 and had huge success and went on to inspire others including her own family. Abby motives others through her social media platform House of Keto showing delicious foods she is making, running challenges and more.

Abby shares her health journey and reveals how her experience with keto became the gift she wanted to give back to the world, including her own family. After years of trying low fat and low calorie diets, she came to discover that keto was the answer for her and the path that also allowed her to overcome food addiction and begin healing childhood trauma.

Once she learned about keto, and about how true health is achieved through proper nutrition, she could not continue to feed her family in a way she no longer believed in. She feeds herself, and her family, a proper human diet and she believes the negative press and comments provide the perfect opportunity to educate and inspire.

Episode 434

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our guest today is Dr. Don Clum, a chiropractor and specialist in advanced metabolic nutrition. Dr. Clum has a cutting edge, integrative programs for insulin resistance specifically focusing on diabetes, diabetes prevention, metabolic syndrome, weight loss resistance, obesity, and cardiometabolic issues.

Don is a bit of a health rebel in the way he challenges the narrative and standard of care in his field and brings light, through first hand experience, to how the medical profession generally mishandles metabolic syndrome and related illnesses.

This episode has so much in it – eating windows, meal times and how the majority of people who practice intermittent fasting are doing so incorrectly in terms of metabolic health. We cover weight loss, blood sugar management, the importance of variance in routines for a thriving body.

We close out the episode Don talking about how to simplify autophagy to reap the benefits of cellular regeneration.

Episode 431

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the podcast Leah and Holly Jean are back with another Cohost Episode. They recap their favorite moments of the last 3 episodes before reviewing the latest health news.

First up Holly and Leah review an article about Doctors and why they might not be the best person to discuss nutrition with and they look at the pros and cons to this as well as suggest other practitioners who might be a better fit. Both Ladies agree gone are the days when you would only consult with your Doctor and having a team of practitioners to work with in their expert areas for your different needs is a wonderful approach.

They then review an article on managing food cravings. What is the difference between a food craving and a food wanting? Can food cravings be resolved with these simple suggestions? Are there any other methods you would add to the list of 12 that help you manage food cravings? Tune in to hear this and more!

This episode with Keith will surely provide insight and thought to this question, especially if you have not yet considered the way humans build their own cages. We discuss the power of questioning and the importance of learning how to use discernment and think critically when it comes to your health.

What came first, the emotion or the gut microbiome response? How does fear impact our brains and health? Keith shares his Seven Pillars for being an optimized human and how we can live free in a world that tries to keep us trapped within “the system”. Resilience is key but anti-fragility is ideal!

The show finishes off with gratitude, looking at the blessings of the past year.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast Leah and Holly Jean are recapping the latest episodes:

424: Reducing Inflammation with a Low Carb Diet, Jeanne David
425: Are you Hydrated with Cait Crowell from What Cait Ate
426: Is Low Carb on the Menu when you are Expecting with Lily Nichols RDN
When it comes to diet, there are no shortages of types to choose from! No wonder it can be confusing when it comes to trying to decide the best way to eat for your health and for your health goals. In this episode Leah and Holly review an article that does a great job at adding to the noise and confusion when it comes to eating styles and diets. Listen in as they discuss 12 Diets You Should Never Try – what do you think makes the list? Holly and Leah review clear the noise, correct some misleading advice, and their thoughts on this list of some popular, some absurd, diet trends.

The ladies then discuss a new article out as to whether our Paleo Ancestors actually ate more carbs – but were carbs the same back then as they are now? Tune in to find this and more.

Episode 424

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

On this episode we are joined by Jeanne David, Founder and CEO of Outer Aisle Gourmet. Jeanne initially created her cauliflower-based sandwich thins and pizza crusts to help her family remove processed carbs and sugars from their diet, while still enjoying comfort food classics like pizza and tacos.

Jeanne is passionate about bringing a low carb, grain and gluten-free bread alternative to those looking to improve health and maximize longevity by reducing chronic, systemic inflammation caused by overconsumption of processed carbohydrates and excess sugar. As a product of the “low fat” diet generation, Jeanne had an eye opening interaction with a life insurance actuary who referred to her generation as one that will “live short and die long”. It was then that she began to learn how inflammation plays is an underlying factor that plays a role in the 5 leading diseases – diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.

Research suggests that taking out refined, blood sugar spiking carbs like white bread and soda is good, but replacing them with fiber- and antioxidant-rich vegetables is even better. Outer Aisle Gourmet to the rescue – Toss the bread, use Cauliflower Instead!

Episode 421

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

In this episode, Leah and Holly Jean enjoy a down to earth discussion with Jenn Kautsch. Jenn is the founder of SoberSis, a like-minded community of women who are renegotiating their relationship with alcohol w/o labels, shame, judgment or rules. Jenn supports women through practical tools and connection while breaking the wine o’clock habit and she does not hold back in this episode – we talk about all the feels, the mixed emotions, the tips and the tricks!

Between 2019 into 2020, reports of women binge drinking rose amid the pandemic. Now many of those women, particularly mothers, say they’re reevaluating their relationship with alcohol in hopes to put an end to the, potentially dangerous, trend.

We’ve all seen the memes floating around – joking about how “mommy needs her juice”, and while it may start as all fun and games, many women are discovering that the ritual of unwinding and relaxing with a drink turns into a slippery slope of needing a drink to cope with stress. If you have been questioning your relationship with alcohol, or curious about breaking free from that detox-to-retox cycle, this is the episode for you!

Episode 412

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Amber and Holly speak with Tracee Gluhaich – certified health coach, personal trainer, energy & breathwork practitioner, author of No Fricken Weigh, and founder of the non-profit Healthy Hope.

In this episode:

Tracee shares how her unsuccessful history trying to sustain dieting with the calories-in-calories-out model led her learning the hard way that health is more than just food and a healthy lifestyle is key to long term success. Her simple, results oriented training programs focus on teaching clients how to design their ideal fit and healthy life by crowding out the noise. Empowerment comes first from boundaries.

TheHealthyHope.org is the non-profit organization Tracee started after being touched and inspired by a long-term client who lost her husband. Together, they realized that widowed spouses need support and community that can bond in the gym and the kitchen.

Read the story about the amazing and inspiring Willie Murphy here.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Leah and Holly are joined by Courtney Bursich from Organic Blondie. Courtney is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, AADP Board Certified Holistic Health Coach, and passionate health hacker who focuses on optimizing female hormones and taking an individualized approach to healing.

Courtney shares what hormonal imbalances are and how she sees them commonly manifest in her clients. She shares how estrogen dominance/androgen dominance are among the common.

She also shares that “women’s cycles and fertility are a vital sign. When we are always fighting our body, it ends up rebelling against us and our treatments rather than taking the time to slow down and try to figure it out. Certain medications and interventions may be necessary in some cases, but maybe not, and at what cost?”

What foods and natural alternatives are helpful in hormonal imbalance.

And where does Ayurveda – An ancient Indian tradition fit into our modern lifestyles.

Episode 408

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Leah and Holly take a journey with Jonathan Shane, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner at The Keto Road.

In this episode:

Jonathan shares his transformation health journey and struggles with weight and body dysmorphia.

Leah and Jonathan chat about what lead Jonathan to study as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.

Find out more about the Nutritional Therapy Association here for USA classes and here for Australia classes. Enrollment for February closes soon!

Holly Jean and John discuss the latest controversy over Cosmopolitan magazine and the cover photo featuring obese women with the caption “this is healthy”. The magazine has come under criticism, being accused of glamorizing obesity, for being irresponsible for displaying obesity as the picture of health during a time where a global pandemic is disproportionately affecting people with obesity and metabolic disorders more adversely. Then there is an outrage in response to the criticism from the body positivity and the body love movement. Holly Jean and Jonathan discuss the valid opinions and arguments on both sides of these discussions and how conversation is opening a lot of doors to understanding and dissecting a complicated topic.

Jonathan shares his proven success formula he uses to help clients:

The ROAD method

R – Remove O – Observe A – Action D – Discipline

Episode 402

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Carlee Hayes is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and the Lead Dietitian at NutriSense, a company that leverages continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology and data to prevent disease and improve health span. With an extensive background in nutrition counseling, weight management, and metabolic health, Carlee is on a mission to stop preventable disease and help people live their healthiest lives.

Conversations around blood sugar dysregulation and blood sugar balancing are important because blood sugar affects all aspects of human physiology. Inflammation and disrupted hormones caused by high blood sugar directly contribute to specific diseases and conditions, including diabetes, PCOS, leaky gut, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer.

What factors are most important in weight loss – calorie restriction or blood sugar regulation?

In this episode we explore that question with with Carlee. We also acknowledge that there is shift happening in health and nutrition, towards a more functional, bio-individual approach and how only YOUR body can tell you what is best for YOUR health. Using a CGM is one way to give yourself health clarity in health, removing some of the guess work that comes with lack of data.

If you’ve ever wondered, how many carbs can YOUR body handle eating before spiking blood glucose? How your workouts impact your blood sugar? Your blood sugar patterns during fasting windows? A CGM can provide you with the data to answer those questions.

When you sign up with Nutrisense, all plans include complimentary dietitian support. Data can be tricky so the Nutrisense dietitians are trained to work with you to help you understand the results. No matter with dietary lifestyle you follow, a CGM can help you meet your health goals with real time, real life DATA support.

Episode 399

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Leah and Amber chat with Marty Kendall from Optimising Nutrition. If you are a long time listener then you will recognize Marty’s name as he has been on the podcast a few times – even as a Co-Host!

Marty discusses his new project: Data-Driven Fasting. DDF revolves around the concept of using your Blood Glucose as a fuel gauge. You just wait until your Blood Glucose level is below your personalised trigger so you know you actually need to refuel. As you chase a lower pre-meal blood sugar trigger, the fat loss follows.

  • Join DDF to receive a 145-page manual and baselining sheet.
  • The next challenge starts November 21, 2020 or  January 2,  2021.  

Marty has a new book called Big Fat Keto Lies  which is a compilation of his learnings from his adventures in low carb and keto land.  Designed to help people who might have stalled on their journey, Marty busts some lies in the Keto world by explaining common misconceptions like why eating too fat much might not be a good thing.

In this episode we look at two lies:

  •  #7 Fasting for longer is better
  •  #9 Calories Don’t count

Is fasting for longer hours better for you? Do you think Calories don’t count? Tune in to hear this and more.

Episode 398

This week on the Low Carb Conversations Podcast Amber and Holly Jean chat with Kiran Krishnan, microbiologist and co-founder of Microbiome Labs. Kiran has a background in research and has been at the forefront of designing clinical trials for the supplement industry. His company, Microbiome Labs, is dedicated to continued research on the microbiome, as well as providing research based probiotics and other supplements to practitioners. He also has a lot of great videos on YouTube if you want to go on a deep dive!

In this episode we talk with Kiran about the importance of a balanced and healthy microbiome (gut bugs!) and how that relates to our immune system and ability to fight off all forms of pathogens from viruses and bacteria to other bugs. We also talk about the connection between gut health and gut microbiome and how that impacts the oral and skin microbiome. Science is just scratching the surface of the human microbiome and how probiotics and other support can help with overall health and wellness. This is a great episode to come back to as a reminder of how much our gut health impacts the rest of the body.

Episode 396

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

On this episode Leah, Holly Jean, and Amber catch up and recap the amazing guests we’ve had on over the last month.

Then the discussion shifts to the importance of self care and what it means to them. Self-care is a popular buzz word, but what do people really think when they think of taking time for self-care. Or, perhaps a better question is, how many people make an effort to actually prioritize self-care?

On this episode our hosts explore the expectations and realities of what self-care looks like. They also share their personal tips for self care. Here is a hint: Self-care is not just an act of luxury, taking bubble baths, or pampering yourself.  Tune in to find out how to find rest and restoration in daily activities and practices – no day spa necessary.

Articles Discussed:

  • Why your self-care isn’t working
    • “Self-care is just one fraction of the broader concept of self-love. Self-love includes, but is not limited to, recognizing your self-worth, being kind toward yourself, and fostering your self-growth throughout the course of your life. If your self-care strategies are not sticking, it may be because you are lacking the foundation of self-love.”
  • It’s time to redefine self-care
    • “Self-care is anything your future self will thank your present self for doing”

Ready to show yourself some self-love this fall? Join Holly Jean in her annual group cleanse, REVIVE: GI Reset.

The Fall 2020 GI-RESET is perfectly timed to support the circadian rhythms of your body and the naturally occurring processes of seasonal detoxification.

The REVIVE GI Reset program runs from Monday November 2 – Monday November 23. The focus is on gut healing and supporting seasonal detoxification.

This is the SELF Care RESET!

With the option to choose from different levels of participation, this is an accessible, online program designed to benefit anyone looking to make time for self-care, get back on track with nutrition, kick cravings, reduce inflammation, and provide an opportunity to revive and repair their bodies from the inside out.

Low-Carb Conversations Ep. 393 with Justin Nault


This week on the Low Carb Conversations Podcast Amber and Holly Jean chat with Justin Nault, the Founder and CEO of Clovis, a health & wellness brand dedicated to building communities of like-minded individuals looking to build a healthy life together. He is also a Certified Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach, host of The Clovis Culture Podcast, musician and inventor of the popular line of superfood powders, “The Perfect Paleo Powder.”
In this episode we talk with Justin about how the invention of an infant feeding tube formula was the catalyst for his company and passion for educating people about the importance of nutrition within families. We then break down a couple of articles. The first article sounds great at first glance, but then becomes a real teachable moment into the importance of ancestral foods and our own discernment skills! We also talk about how Covid has increased our family meals together and allowed for more opportunities to have great discussions about healthful food choices.

The discussion then turns to what has happened to the discussion on food? On social media we see prominent players in the nutrition world digging into deeper even somewhat complicated topics around food and often forgetting the simple things such as the positive impact of drinking water or eating real food.

And even though we have more access to more knowledge about nutrition than ever before our Millennial generation is becoming sicker. The ladies discuss why this might be and then look at making positive choices with the knowledge we have.

Episode 389

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

Our Guest today is Elyse Comerford – Integrative Nutritionist and Certified GAPS Practitioner, Holistic Health Coach, Exercise Scientist, Keynote Speaker, Mentor, and most importantly, a mother!

In today’s episode Elyse shares her health journey with Leah and Holly Jean and does some myth busting on some misconceptions about the GAPS diet. It’s not as big and scary as some people would like to you believe. Spoiler alert: the benefits diet pros can outweigh the cons; the truth lies in the context of bio-individuality and unique healing needs.

The conversation also gets personal as we discuss the pressure of motherhood and our experiences with mom shaming. We think you will enjoy hearing about the importance of self care and the relationships we cultivate to support us in nourishing our bodies and souls.

We wrap up this episode with a chat about how nutrition has changed over the last three decades, including probiotics and the microbiome, whole food diets, omega 3 fatty acids, and the rise of nutrition information in the age of the internet.

What is the GAPS diet and why one expert says she wouldn’t recommend it under any circumstances

This week on the podcast Leah and Amber are back again and chatting with Doug Smith, Co-Founder & CEO of Paleo Pro & True Nutrition. True Nutrition allows fully customizable dietary supplement and food powders. Paleo Pro  is committed to making purposeful and delicious ‘real-food’ paleo powders using only the highest quality ingredients available.

We discuss why Doug founded Paleo Pro and True Nutrition and  the importance of bio individual nutrition. He experienced first hand many health issues with friends and family arising from poor nutrition. Doug shares his thoughts on mono crops such as corn, wheat and soy and their impact on our health and the economy. We love his philosophy on getting back to nature and eating real food. So many people are disconnected from where their food comes from these days and Doug wants people to start connecting back to the source, read labels, and empower yourself with knowledge! Next we look at the Neanderthal diet – is this closely related to the Carnivore diet of today before finishing up with a new plant based protein- fermented wood. Would you drink a fermented wood protein shake?
