‘Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show’ Episode 323: The Best Of 2009 ‘Encore Week’ Interview With Nora Ged

Posted Jan 08 2010 3:50pm

Special THANKS to our sponsor for today’s episode of “Encore Week”:

Nora Gedgaudas rounds out the best of 2009 “Encore Week” podcasts

What a week it has been with “Encore Week” highlighting brand new interviews with five of your favorite podcast interview guests from 2009. I’ve been privileged to bring you these exciting new interviews all this week featuring YOUR questions for these amazing experts in the world of low-carb diet and health. In case you missed them, be sure to check out my “Encore Week” interviews with Dr. Richard Bernstein, Mark Sisson, Julia Ross, and Sally Fallon. Last but certainly not least, we have one more podcast interview with the final of the best guests on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore” from 2009.

In Episode 323 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are excited to have Nora Gedgaudas back with us again. She is the author of Primal Body-Primal Mind and the host of the online VoiceAmerica radio show Primal Body-Primal Mind. Although she was just on my show in October 2009, Nora made a huge impact on my listeners who were intrigued by what they heard by this guest who espouses a Paleolithic way of eating.

In this interview, you’ll hear Nora Gedgaudas talk about why moderating protein is important for longevity, why more protein for women who are pregant is good for you, why we usually don’t have enough acid in our bodies, why carbivores have to relearn how to eat protein and fat, why a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb diet is ideal, why doing low-carb and low-fat at the same time is a mistake, why eating sugar is like using kindling to warm your house, why limiting fat is much more dangerous than eating fat, why vitamin deficiency is from a lack of fat in your diet, why vitamin D cannot be absorbed without dietary fat, why autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s is running rampant, how the glycemic index/glycemic load factors in to healthy eating, why honey and agave syrup are still just as bad as sugar, whether a ketogenic diet is necessary for weight loss, what role exercise plays in lung capacity, the benefits of using kettle bells for interval training, how you can get people to understand they have a problem with the way they are eating, and how to knock out your desire for consuming sweet foods. As you will quickly hear in this podcast, Nora is extremely articulate and knowledgeable about the subject matter she talks about and we’re grateful for her willingness to share her expertise with us during “Encore Week.”
