The LLVLC Show (Episode 455): ‘Body By Design’ Author Kris Gethin And Lew Bender Explains Diet Genetic Testing

Posted Mar 14 2011 4:31pm



In Episode 455 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we give you two-for-the-price-of-one podcasting today beginning with certified personal trainer and nutritionist Kris Gethin who has written a book entitled Body By Design: The Complete 12-Week Plan to Transform Your Body Forever to help people achieve their fitness goals as he has done through his very popular web site as well as his BodySpace fitness community site. He doesn’t necessarily come at achieving this with a low-carb lifestyle change, but it’s always interesting to hear what motivates people to get excited about being fit and healthy. Kris Gethin will certainly do that as you will hear in today’s interview!

Listen to Kris Gethin share about what he does to transform clients in 12 weeks:

  • His weight problem and back pain that led him into bodybuilding
  • How he became affiliated with
  • Why he focuses on motivation over information
  • Which is more important: exercise or diet?
  • The four pillars of power he advocates
  • Why radical accountability forever is so important to success
  • His FLOW chart concept for reaching your fitness goals
  • How you can be prepared for the obstacles that will come
  • Examples of the success stories he includes in his book
  • The “pay it forward” mentality that kicks in with success
  • Whether cardio exercise is an important fitness activity and why
  • Why quality workouts are more important than quantity
  • What he thinks about intermittent fasting
  • The make-up of the diet he is recommending to clients
  • Whether someone can choose a plan with more fat and less carbs
  • Why people have such a hard time keeping the success once they reach it
  • The exercise illustrations he put in the back of Body By Design

    In the second interview, we’ll hear from Lew Bender who is the CEO of a genetic testing company called Interleukin Genetics whose test is available from Inherent Health which uses DNA to figure out which diet and exercise plan is right for the individual. It’s an intriguing concept since so many of us who found low-carb were frustrated by the failure of the monolithic low-fat, low-calorie nutritional plans. But what happened when I took this test to see what it said would be the right diet and exercise plan for me? Hmmmm…tune in to find out!

    Listen to Lew Bender share more about his unique diet genetics test:

  • How he became interested in the subject of diet genetics
  • The low-carb connection with Interleukin Genetics
  • Why finding the right diet for you is the key to being successful
  • Whether diet genetics is the missing element in diet comparison studies
  • The other collaborations they are doing with researchers using their technology
  • What the process is like when you receive your kit and mail it in
  • How they determine the right diet and exercise plan from the DNA sample
  • The three diet and two exercise categories they put people into
  • Whether it’s possible to reprogram the genes you’ve been given
  • What the science says about DNA testing for customized diet and exercise plans
  • If there’s been anyone who has gotten tested and the results were wrong
  • His concerns about someone trying to follow a very low-fat or low-carb diet
  • How his company tries to help people comply with their specific diet plan
  • The statistical difference between fat trimmers vs. carbohydrate cutters
  • What you get from the report showing you the results of your test
  • A personal consultation with a genetics expert to answer any questions you have
  • Whether he is marketing this test to physicians and what they think about it
  • How someone can get this diet genetics testing done for themselves

    Coming up on Thursday, I’ve got an unexpected treat to share with you. As you know, an interview with Gary Taubes aired on The Dr. Oz Show last week that put low-carb living in an unfavorable light. Dr. Oz used his bully pulpit and creative editing to try to put Gary in an unenviable position of explaining why he advocates for cutting carbohydrate consumption while increasing fat, especially saturated fat, intake for the sake of health. He shared with me that much of what he said had been cut out of the final version that aired and that he wishes there was a way he could set the record straight about what happened. I’m giving Gary that opportunity at the beginning of Thursday’s podcast so you can hear directly from the horse’s mouth exactly what happened, the mood of the audience, why he refused to take the cholesterol test on air, and so much more! If you were miffed about how that show made low-carb look, then you will DEFINITELY want to listen to this exclusive follow-up interview. Then we’ll have my scheduled interview with Ben Hewitt about his fascinating book The Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local Food detailing the story of how real food saved the small town of Hardwick, Vermont. This is one podcast you will NOT want to miss!
