In today's episode, our co-hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie are pleased to have two amazing guest friends from the low-carb blogging community in Ellie Lance from the "LCHF America" blog and Debbie Prim from the "Confused and Gassy" blog. Listen in to hear Jimmy, Cassie, Ellie, and Debbie share their input about some of the latest health headlines, including an op-ed about a vegan diet for heart health from the next president of the American College of Cardiology, why junk food is purposely running rampant in your kid's school lunches, an exciting new paper published in the journal Nutrition from a group of researchers and medical doctors pushing for a low-carb diet to be the first option for treating Type 2 diabetes, whether the Paleo diet has some "dirty laundry" to deal with, the impact that food plays on your mood, why consuming dietary fat doesn't make you fat, and how a professional athlete has optimized his exercise performance through a low-carb Paleo diet. We've got so much to share with you today, so pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!
