First of all I want to welcome and thank those of you who recently joined my Healthy Discoveries Fan Page on Facebook. I occasionally post pictures, videos and updates, but my published blog posts are what I link most frequently to this facebook page.
I usually write 2-4 blog posts a month.
My intention with my blog is to connect you to healthy people, products, ideas, books, events and places. I have been blogging for 2.5 years. Some posts I have written during that time period include; transfats, dealing with weight loss plateaus and people like my friend Jo, who overcame a traumatic brain injury.
Sometimes I write about my own life, for example; my struggle with hypothyroidism, a great business trip turned weekend get-away to Seattle, my thoughts on running my own business and some insights I gained while climbing my first 14’er.
In other words, under the umbrella of the Healthy Discoveries Blog, you get a little bit of everything- meaning whatever is on my mind at the time.
So thank you again for joining my page, it means a lot and I appreciate knowing that you’re out there reading once I hit the publish key! I also welcome your comments on my blog or facebook so please don’t be shy.
And now onto today’s Healthy Discovery:
People often ask me which websites and on-line resources I recommend for reliable health information?
To be honest, those sites are few and far between.
But The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Podcast is one of those rare gems on the Internet that provides top-notch health information. Jimmy Moore interviews the best of the best in the health industry. You can download any and all of his podcasts to your computer or iPod for FREE!
Jimmy believes (as do I) in a low sugar, low grain diet, hence the name – The Low-Carb Show. But don’t be turned off by that name if you don’t subscribe to that diet philosophy (although you may want to listen to some of his interviews with doctors about the negative effects of wheat gluten).
Nonetheless, scroll through Jimmy’s podcast archives (he’s been recording his interviews with top experts, doctors and authors since 2006) you’ll find a treasure chest of cutting edge health and nutrition information.
These are some of my favorite interviews:
Dr. Uffe Ravnskov – The Cholesterol Myth
Dr. Nancy Appleton – Lick The Sugar Habit
Lierre Keith – The Vegetarian Myth
Julia Ross – The Mood Cure
Dr. Richard Bernstein – The Diabetes Solution
Gary Taubes – Good Calories, Bad Calories
Dr. Bruce Fife – The Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
Dr. Jonny Bowden – Finding The Diet That’s Right For You
Mark Sisson – The Primal Blueprint
Sally Fallon – President of the Weston A. Price Foundation
James LaValle – Cracking The Metabolic Code
I admit these are many of my nutritional hero’s. I have read their books and heard most of them speak at medical conferences over the years; that’s why I’m so excited that Jimmy interviews them for the public to download.
Information is power and I think these podcasts are excellent resources to help individuals create optimal health. I encourage you to listen and learn. You’ll gain practical tips that will improve your energy, mood, weight and overall health!
