Questions for Kim about Weight Loss & a Ketogenic Diet

Kim’s Bio: background and health history

What are the basics of the ketogenic diet and the difference between keto and paleo?

Why is it so controversial?

Who should not do a ketogenic diet?

 What are the biggest challenges for people while on it? Common mistakes?

 What are some improvements people report after doing it for a while?

Should people stay on it as a maintenance plan? How long can someone stay on it?

Listener Questions

Micheal:  I’ve lost 112 pounds on keto-paleo, down from 260lbs, but still have about 10lbs around my mid section that is very stubborn. Any suggestions for getting rid of the last ten pounds?

Linda:  I would like to know more about the 2 week menu and recipes in her ebook. I am thinking about buying the ebook, but am looking for an easy to follow, good meal plan. I’ve been paleo with occasional raw dairy for a year and would like to try the ketogenic diet for health reasons.

Gina:  Is it as complicated as it seems?

Bonnie: What, if any, sweetener did she allow herself? When I followed a keto diet in the past, I used Splenda, Xylitol, Stevia and Erythritol (I was also combining keto with anti-candida diet) for an occasional treat to help me stay on track. Now, those sweeteners don’t appeal to me (with the exception of Stevia, on occasion) but I know that I will need an occasional treat (special occasions and such) to stay on track.

Tony: It would be good to hear what she has to say about health issues by going keto. I have a friend that freaks out every time I tell her I want to go keto, she reckons it will damage my already dodgey kidneys big time!!

Pamela: I’ve done low carb ketogenic diets in the past w/ great results; however, as I got older they seemed less effective. I do paleo to feel healthy but I really am *stuck* at a healthy size 14 unless I do tons of exercise & weight training which, as a single FT working mom, I just have time to do. So my question is this… do we need to count calories as we get older to have the same effects on a ketogenic diet? I’m in my 40s, fairly active (hiking / walking, hit the gym a couple times / week) & not menopausal. Thanks!

Facebook Fan: Do we really have to measure our ketones level to follow this diet? Can we know we are in ketones without that?

Bonnie: Any suggestions for the keto bad breath?

Kim’s book, Kick the Weight with Keto, offers excellent guidelines on how to lose weight with a ketogenic diet. Her book covers the following:

  • what a keto diet is, and how it differs from ketoacidosis
  • how to lose weight steadily with real food
  • how to exercise without feeling tired
  • what to eat to get into ketosis, and how to STAY in ketosis
  • how to measure your ketosis levels accurately so that you know you’re on the right track
  • how to cook, plan meals and shop for your new keto lifestyle
  • recipes and meal plans!

PodCast 14: Cholesterol Clarity with Jimmy Moore

We were honored to welcome Jimmy Moore who wrote a new book all about uncovering the misinformation surrounding fear around cholesterol and the mainstream medical establishment. He interviewed 30 of the top health experts in the field of cholesterol research and co-authored with Dr. Eric Westman to help bring out the real truth about heart disease and saturated fat. We also got to ask him about the connection between inflammation, cholesterol and diabetes.
jmmymoore

His new blockbuster: Cholesterol Clarity

CholesterolClarityFINALCover_zps8dce419e

Listen here:

Questions for Jimmy:

 How did this fear of cholesterol come about?

What is difference between the science and what the mainstream medical industry believes?

What are some of the most common misconceptions about cholesterol?

Which tests to ask your doctor for?

  • Nmr liporofile
  • Fasting glucose
  • triglycerides
  • C-reactive protein

How could a person communicate with his/her doctor about not wanting to go on statins?

What if a person has been doing paleo with no changes to their numbers (low HDL & high LDL) and thyroid isn’t the problem?

When would your numbers indicate a problem? How high would total cholesterol/LDL have to be to worry?

What is the correlation between diabetes and heart disease?

What are some lifestyle modifications people can make to get their docs off their back?

 What is your opinion about the current cholesterol treatments?

How is your book different from the other books on the topic?

Who is your intended audience? Who will this book help?

Reader Questions:

Judy Yes, why is the mainstream medical community soo slow to change treatment protocols for heart disease? It seems we have the information and they don’t. I have a friend who wouldn’t dare eat eggs and butter or coconut oil but eats bread with fake butter substitute? Because that’s what the cardiology specialists in Canada tell him to do… I don’t understand.

Lori Would like to know natural ways to decrease hereditary high cholesterol. MD has me on a statin at 50! No matter what herb I suggested, my MD said no significant decrease.

Maria My mom has high cholesterol levels and diabetes and was given medicines like Ascord to lower it. I have two questions:

What are some other more natural ways of lowering the cholesterol level? She was told by the doctor to eat low-fat or fat-free products only, but I read a recent post that those are the most unhealthy choices. Is there a connection between high cholesterol and diabetes? Both these issues were discovered at the same time for my mom.

What, if any, supplements do you find help people with autoimmune?

What is your philosophy about starches/carbs on the Autoimmune protocol?

How does someone get in the mindset of following an autoimmune protocol, above and beyond regular paleo?

Listener Question:

How does autoimmunity affect fertility? And should we avoid certain foods which are touted as fertility foods (specifically egg yolks, butter and raw milk) if we have an autoimmune condition but are hoping to conceive?

Get Sarah’s New Book all about how to institute the Autoimmune protocol.

PODCAST 9: EMOTIONAL/BINGE EATING WITH EFT EXPERT BRITTANY WATKINS

Listen here.


Podcast Powered By Podbean

Or listen in iTunes (and please leave us a review!)

I think this is my favorite podcast so far. This is a subject near and dear to my heart, as I have many clients who struggle with emotional and binge eating, and I have too in the past.
Image-1A little background on my story: I was a really thin kid growing up, but then I discovered candy. I remember sneaking it into my room, or sneaking downstairs to steal cookies from the cookie jar. My mom and dad both had major a sweet tooth, so there was always candy, cookies, ice cream and chocolate cake around. My parents were divorced, so when I would visit my dad on the weekends, we made those visits all about food– McDonald’s (I was so excited when I finally was able to finish both my Big Mac AND my large fries) and Baskin Robbins for 2 scoops of ice cream– Mississippi Mud and Chocolate Chip. I started to gain weight, so my parents put me on a diet. I remember counting fat grams starting at age 9. I was told I was fat. That devastated me. But I was still obsessed with sugar and candy and hungry all the time, so I would steal it and hide it in my room and stuff myself silly. In high school, this turned into binge-purge behavior and finally just straight up restriction. I was also riding and competing horses competitively and was very concerned about being in shape. By age 15, I was underweight and very pleased with how restricting food earned me a lot of attention. But it didn’t last. I struggled with keeping my weight down all through college, somehow successfully, through beer and late night taco and pizza binges. But I always turned to food, and especially sugar, for comfort.

I tried everything to lose more weight after college– going vegan, starving myself, throwing up, doing cleanses, juice fasts– even though I wasn’t even overweight at that point, just obsessed with being thin, thinking somehow that was the magic bullet that would make my life perfect. If only I could be thin, I would be happy, successful, prettier. Then I got into the pattern of starving myself during the week and bingeing on alcohol, pizza, and ice cream on the weekends. Finally I got my hands on Julia Ross’s The Diet Cure, and it really changed the way I thought about food. I learned that it was more than willpower– there are underlying physiological issues that go along with food cravings, addiction, bingeing, the need for control. Around this time I went back to school for an advanced degree in holistic nutrition and it all fell into place. Along with a lot of therapy along the way ;)

I empathize deeply with women out there struggling with the binge and restriction cycle. It’s a very complex issue, but please understand it goes much deeper than willpower. I hope you’ll get as much out of this podcast with Brittany as I did.

Questions we asked Brittany:

What is EFT and what is it good for?

What does EFT do in the body, and how does it work?

Can EFT help with addiction or alcoholism?

How does emotional eating begin?

How can you stop emotional eating in the moment of a binge?

How can EFT help with stress?

How do food choices and diet come into play with emotional eating?

How does exercise come into play (exercise addiction)?

Can you ever eat your trigger foods again?
