‘Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show’ Episode 229: Dr. Larry McCleary Says Our Brains Function Best On Low-Carb Diet
Posted Feb 19 2009 6:30pm
America’s leading low-carb brain health expert, Dr. Larry McCleary
One of the emerging areas of health that people are beginning to pay more attention to in recent years involve neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, for example. In fact, some have even gone so far as to refer to these brain health concerns as “Type 3″ diabetes since many of these conditions are due to excessive glucose and insulin. My podcast interview guest today has devoted his life to treating brain health metabolically by implementing a nutritional plan of action to produce the preferred fuel for brains to function at optimal level.
In Episode 229 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” it’s such a pleasure to welcome Dr. Larry McCleary, author of The Brain Trust Program, to discuss the undeniable connection between carbohydrate consumption and neurological diseases. Dr. McCleary gets into the specifics of the negative impact carbohydrates have on neurological health, discusses what it takes to maintain a healthy brain, explains why brains prefer ketone bodies for fuel, the supplements that you should be taking for brain health, and how a low-carbohydrate diet can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, aka “Type 3” diabetes. If you or someone in your family is dealing with sort of brain disease or disorder, then you owe it to yourself to listen to this 60-minute podcast interview with America’s leading authority on brain health.

The podcast schedule next week looks fantastic starting with T.S. Wiley on Monday. She wrote a rather compelling book on sleep and the weight loss connection entitled Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar, and Survival. If you’re one of those people who thinks you get plenty of sleep to function properly during the day, then you might be surprised by what you hear in this interview. Then on Thursday, we’ll hear from Tanya Attebery who wrote an autobiographical teen fiction novel called Fat-Haters’ Club to share what it was like transforming from the picked on fat kid into one of the most vocal critics of her “fat” classmates. It’s an encouraging message of hope for those who are looking to overcome the demons that have plagued obese kids long into their adulthood. That’s all coming up next week on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.”

Keep in mind I’m constantly requesting and recording interviews and am currently about three months ahead of what you are hearing now. If I haven’t interviewed your favorite guest yet, then it likely means I am still negotiating with them on a compatible date or our interview is scheduled in the next couple of months.
