In Episode 387 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from certified nutritionist Jolene Park from a corporate wellness consulting company called Healthy Discoveries dedicated to helping employees learn how to be healthier, more productive workers. Listen to Jolene talk about how she merged her love for communications and nutrition, the influence of Dr. Loren Cordain , Dr. Mike Eades , and Dr. Jonny Bowden on her thinking about diet and health, why she confidently bucks the trend of her colleagues in the nutrition industry, the reaction she gets from her clients to promoting a high-fat, low-carb message for health, how she breaks the cultural health paradigms with the employees she teaches, the way she makes learning about nutrition concepts fun, why consumers buy into the health marketing claims on food packaging, why she felt like there was a health consulting void existed in corporate wellness, her “big break” with a Fortune 500 company, the concept of the “wellness wheel,” what she is teaching people about health that is most important, why she doesn’t believe in the “cookie-cutter” approach to diet, what the biggest problems she is seeing with her clients, the most invaluable health book she promotes to her clients, her focus on “hunter-gatherer” whole food Paleolithic eating, why she gave up eating gluten although she doesn’t have Celiac disease, the influence that growing up on a cattle farm had on her as well as The Weston A. Price Foundation, and why she’s not a fan of soy. Get excited that there are nutritionists out there like Jolene Park out there who are promoting the right ideas regarding healthy living to corporate employees from coast to coast.

Learn more about the work Jolene is doing by visiting HealthyDiscoveries.com , her accompanying blog , her YouTube channel , her Facebook page , and her Twitter page . Coming up next week, we’ve got two outstanding interviews to share with you. On Monday, we’ll hear from UK-based nutritional anthropologist Geoff Bond , author of Deadly Harvest: The Intimate Relationship Between Our Health and Our Food (read my review of this book), who looks at the historical perspective of diet. Although he understands the principle of limiting grains in the traditional diet, Bond believes saturated fat is not a part of the equation. Nevertheless, I think you’ll find what he has to say very complementary to your low-carb education. Then on Thursday, we’ll have the most knowledgable person on the Atkins diet in the world–registered nurse Jackie Eberstein . She worked for nearly three decades with the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in his complementary medicine practice in New York City and tons of experience and knowledge about what controlled-carbohydrate living is all about. We’ll chit-chat about some of the most pressing questions people have about this way of eating. That’s all coming up next week on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
