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.

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!"


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!
