Real Health Conversations
Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by Holly Jean Mullen, FNTP and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition and health science, expressing many different points of view.

Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Certified Personal Trainer Noelle Tarr, Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and Licensed Acupuncturist Jamie Koonce and ketogenic diet specialist Stephanie Person join our host Jimmy Moore today in Episode 166 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"


After being gone since September from this listener-supported podcast dedicated to sharing cutting-edge news and educated views on the latest in the world of health, we are back with a whole lot of changes happening. The most significant change is our longtime and beloved cohost Dietitian Cassie has decided to move on as she has become quite busy in her Healthy Simple Life business as of late. We are so proud of Cassie and wish her well in the next chapter of her life (she'll be back one last time as a guest friend on January 8, 2016). With the absence of a cohost for veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore, we decided to let YOU the listeners help us find a brand new cohost to join Jimmy on Fridays beginning in 2016.

Over the next three weeks, we will be conducting a Low-Carb Conversations cohost contest featuring nine incredible candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds in the low-carb, ketogenic, Paleo, and the real food movement. We'll feature three contestants per week for the first three weeks of December and the winners of those three episodes will return for one more final showdown on Friday, January 1, 2016 where you and your fellow listeners will decide who you want to be the brand new cohost. Sound like fun? We can't wait to watch all of this unfold in the coming weeks.

Here are the first three contestants we have for you in this week's episode with Jimmy's Periscope video feature on each of them:

CONTESTANT #1 - Noelle Tarr from
CONTESTANT #2 - Jamie Koonce from Energized.Life
CONTESTANT #3 - Stephanie Person from

In today's episode, Jimmy, Noelle, Jamie, and Stephanie discuss the fine line between eating clean and becoming orthorexic, the rise in cash-only concierge healthcare from doctors fed up with the system, a survey of vegetarians who admit they eat meat when they get drunk, a columnist's claim that Paleo didn't work for her, the addition of real butter to the McDonald's Egg McMuffin and what that means, and whether a new mother nearly died from eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet. Don't miss the closing statements from each of the contestants where they share why they should be Jimmy's new cohost. VOTE HERE NOW!
