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.

Health blogger and medical school student Kris Gunnars and corporate registered dietitian Paul Krieger join our co-hosts Dietitian Cassie and Jimmy Moore today in this special cholesterol-focused Episode 87 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

It's been a little while since we've been on the air, but we're back with a bang today here on "Low-Carb Conversations" celebrating the long-awaited release of Jimmy's brand new book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? (also available in Kindle e-book) with a special edition of the show dedicated solely to health headlines that deal with the subject of cholesterol. And in addition to our fabulous co-hosts Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie, we are pleased to welcome two highly-qualified guests to take on such a complex topic--returning guest friend and medical school student Kris Gunnars from the "Authority Nutrition" blog and registered dietitian Paul Kriegler from "Lifetime WeightLoss." Listen to them take on these cholesterol health headlines along with Jimmy and Dietitian Cassie, including why cholesterol and saturated fat are not the enemy, the role of statin medications in the treatment of cholesterol, the shocking information about cholesterol communicated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in a 2013 pamphlet, the new knowledge we have about cholesterol, former President George W. Bush's recent blocked artery story, Paul's column on the real deal on lipids, Kris' column on cholesterol and nutrition myths that pervade our culture and more! So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

Because we are a listener-supported show, we need the donations of listeners like YOU to help keep it going. While we've been gone, we appreciate all the fabulous donations sent in by our faithful listeners, including Shaun, Nicole, Kenneth, Patricia, Kim, Carol, David, Barbara, Margaret, Nancy, John, Kari, Elaine, Karen, Philip, Regina, Nadine, Wendy, Greg, Linda, Penny, Gillian, Janice, Sheila and Jeff! THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! 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. If you've been positively impacted by "Low-Carb Conversations," then consider making a donation of ANY size to help us stay on the air. 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 is greatly appreciated.
