GMOs as safe as conventional food, beneficial for farmers — scientists


Quarter of millennials have absolutely no interest in cookery



This week on Low Carb Conversations, Diana Rodgers shares information her new documentary called, “Kale Vs. Cow: The Case for Better Meat". Kale Vs. Cow is the brainchild of Diana Rodgers of Sustainable Dish, a real food dietician living on a working organic farm. The film focuses on the most vilified of farm animals, the cow, ultimately making the case that eliminating animals from our food system will cause more harm than good.  Contrary to popular media messages that demonize beef, well-managed cattle are one of our best chances at improving soil health and sequestering carbon. Red meat is also a superfood, rich in high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals. Red meat is not the enemy.

Diana needs your help! Support Kale vs. Cow’s crowdfunding campaign here!


Diana, Kara and Leah discuss an article where by a conference in the Philippines stated that GMO's where in fact, safe.  What do you think?  Then they discuss an article about Millennial's and how they just don't seem to see the need to cook these days.  Do you fall in that category?

And do you have a beef with our secret health headline?

It's Not Your Fault — Junk Food is Twice as Distracting as Healthy Food


This week on Low Carb Conversations Dr. Glenn Livingston and Rachel Peterson are here to share their health perspectives! Dr. Glenn Livingston is the Author of Never Binge Again (#1 on Kindle for Eating Disorders).

With it, he helps restore free will, empowering people out from under feeling enslaved to certain foods and triggers.

Rachel Peterson is a Primal Health Coach and lifestyle blogger from Austin, Tx. She’s passionate about thyroid and autoimmune health, loves dreaming up healthy delicious recipes and wants to lend support to others going through their own health journeys. Check out her blog! 

Rachel, Glenn, Leah and Kara discuss a new study connecting eating disorders to autoimmune disease. So what came first: autoimmunity or the eating disorder? Listen to the gusts discuss their opinions! The second article is a study showing we are hard wired to seek out high-calorie junk food from survival instincts. But how do they advise dealing with that? Moderation. See what Glenn and Rachel have to say about that on this week's episode!
