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.

We're so happy to be back at it again in Episode 48 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends with our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and the prodigal child Mindy Noxon Iannotti back in her rightful place on the show after being gone since March. And we've also got some MAJOR changes to tell you about with the podcast. You'll immediately notice we no longer have any sponsorship ads at the beginning of the podcast. That's because beginning right now, we are totally listener-supported. Yep, we are focused on bringing a show dedicated to you, for you and about your healthy low-carb lifestyle. If you like what you hear, then we'd appreciate your financial support to help us keep this show on the air. We appreciate all of our faithful listeners and encourage you to make your contributions so we can keep the fun going: DONATE HERE!

In this special extended one-hour show (let us know if you like the longer episode or not), we feature a husband-wife team named Tom Nikkola and Vanessa Romero who joined us on the recent May 2012 Low-Carb Cruise. We were so impressed with them that we just knew they had to be on the podcast to talk about the health headlines of the day. Tom is the Director of Nutrition & Weight Management at Lifetime Fitness and his wife Vanessa blogs at "Healthy Living How To." Listen to their inspiring stories of low-carb success and then as they opine with Jimmy and Mindy about whether exercise is harmful, if exercise is equal to diet in terms of diabetes management, the idea that there's no such thing as cardio exercise, a new study proclaiming low-carb diets are good for the kidneys and if Dr. Atkins is to blame for confusion over carbs. Plus, don't miss Vanessa's mouthwatering melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate coconut cups recipe at the end. Get ready for a fun ride in today's super-sized, but oh-so-healthy episode of "Low-Carb Conversations!"
