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.

Board Certified Health Coach and Functional Diagnostic Practitioner Maria Claps, Registered Holistic Nutritionist Meg Doll and Registered, Licensed Dietitian Brianna Elliot join our host Jimmy Moore today in Episode 168 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"


We're so excited to be back and rolling with this weekly listener-supported podcast again taking a look through the various headlines in the world of health. If you haven't been paying attention since the show returned, there are some changes happening with the podcast. 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.

In the month of December, we have been 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've featured three contestants per week the past two weeks and have three more for you today where you get to vote for your favorite contestant. The winners of those three semifinal episodes will return for one last 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 see who you want to become my brand new cohost beginning on Friday, January 8, 2016.

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

CONTESTANT #1 - Maria Claps from
CONTESTANT #2 - Meg Doll from
CONTESTANT #3 - Brianna Elliot from

to vote for your favorite contestant in Round 3
Voting will end on Tuesday, December 22, 2015!

In today's episode, Jimmy, Maria, Meg, and Brianna share their thoughts on a new study that finds Type 2 diabetes is reversed by losing pancreas fat, NFL football star Tom Brady's comments about the negative health effects of sugar, the end of a controversial research group funded by Coke, the claim that juice is a gateway drug to soda, a study claiming an animal-based low-carb diet can raise the risk of Type 2 diabetes, and the huge paradigm shift that is happening in the modern diet.
