The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show (Episode 1221): Dr. Cate Shanahan Digs Deep Into The Nutrition Science Of Traditional Diets:

In Episode 1221 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we bring you an interview with LA Lakers PRO Nutrition program director and author of Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food Dr. Cate Shanahan as our interview guest featured today. Cate Shanahan M.D has over two decades of clinical experience and expertise in genetic and biochemical research, and specializes in helping patients to reverse metabolic disease and reshape their bodies. She is a board-certified family physician who trained in biochemistry and genetics at Cornell University before attending Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. For ten years, Dr. Shanahan practiced medicine in Hawaii, where she studied ethnobotany and the culinary habits of her healthiest patients. She currently serves as the Director of the Los Angeles Lakers PRO Nutrition Program and in March 2017 will be working in Newtown, CT. Dr. Shanahan’s new book Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food shows us how the campaign against saturated fat initiated sweeping dietary changes that affect our gene expression and replication. Dr. Cate illustrates how the modern diet has affected our health over the past few generations, delving into the science behind altered expression of our DNA, our predisposition to disease, even our physical appearance. She lays out the essential elements all traditional diets share in common, a road map in the form of traditional recipes, showing you your clearest path back to optimal health.

“A lot of doctors feel that change will be grass-roots instead of hearing from Harvard or from the government.” – Dr. Cate Shanahan

The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show (Episode 1220): Victoria Adelus Is On a Quest To Make Quality Keto Foods Accessible:

Victoria Adelus is the Program Director for Epigenix Foundation, a 501(c)(3) founded by the CEO of Quest, involved in studying the epigenetic impact of nutritional interventions on human disease and performance. With more than 12 years of experience in the fitness and nutrition industry and after receiving guidance from KetoPet Sanctuary (a program of Epigenix) to help reduce her dog’s seizures, Victoria became interested in the deep science of the Ketogenic Diet. Victoria joined Epigenix when the non-profit started several human pilot studies, and over the last year she’s helped more than 50 cancer patients with a ketogenic approach. Victoria is also the head of special projects at Quest. She started her career as a TV News and Health Reporter, while running a large online training and nutrition business. Victoria is also a former professional athlete in the international federation of bodybuilding and fitness.

Quest Keto meals were created in 2016 with a sole purpose of supporting the patients who participated in Epigenix Foundation’s pilot studies focused on the ketogenic diet and its impact on cancer. As some of the studies came to an end, many of the Foundation’s patients wanted to continue the diet and use Quest Keto meals as a tool in their everyday life. The product was then launched to the public to help people take the guesswork out of measuring their macros, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of a deliciously ketogenic diet with ease. From ketogenic cinnamon rolls to flatbreads, you can find it all at!

“The ketogenic diet is the future of nutrition. The things we’ve seen in our trials are mind-blowing.” – Victoria Adelus

A very talented professional Aussie artist named Chris drew this amazing pic that in his own words "portray(s) the message of our distant relatives that if we return to our roots of nutritional consumption we may as a society have a fighting chance to cure Western disease." He's hoping that this help "bring a little awareness to help people understand the importance of nutrition" as it relates to chronic diseases such as cancer. This drawing from the Brisbane, Australia-based artist depicts a cancer cell sitting on top of a big pile of sugar to demonstrate "the relationship between sugar (carbs) and one of the most influential diseases to effect man kind ever in CANCER." Interestingly, the original artwork is 30X22 inches using a scribbling technique that took a total of 53 hours to complete. Wow! Follow Chris on Instagram at

I LOVE getting comments like this new iTunes review of my Thursday podcast called Keto Talk because it demonstrates how incredibly ignorant some people are about everything involved with making health podcasting happen. I've been at this for over a decade now with my flagship and longest-running one called The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show along with my former shows Ask The Low-Carb Experts and Low-Carb Conversations as well as my brand new Fasting Talk podcast that debuted last month.

But with the lightning success of my Keto Talk podcast cohosted with Dr. Adam Nally over this past year and even Fasting Talk with Dr. Jason Fung and Megan Ramos, the unsolicited advice on how to make them better has poured in. I've said it often and I'll say it again--if you think you can do a better podcast than me, then have at it! Let's see what you come up with. You just might see it's not as easy as you think it is to be compelling and engaging with an audience.

There are those who think a podcast should just be information, information, information. Just the facts, ma'am, and nothing else. If you want that style of audio, then go listen to NPR. But to stand out amongst the plethora of options on the nutritional health podcasting scene, you need to be different and that's what I do on all of my shows, especially Keto Talk--have a little fun (with silliness sprinkled in from time to time), offer up entertainment that makes you laugh, and provide the proper environment for learning new information that can apply to your healthy ketogenic lifestyle. That's my goal every single time I stand behind that microphone and I'm more passionately energized to do that now than I was when I started podcasting way back in 2006. This little secret sauce of success is what has given my podcasts longevity over the years.

Obviously somebody likes my style because Keto Talk is one of the Top 25-ranked Fitness & Nutrition podcasts (along with LLVLC Show and Fasting Talk). I hate to break it to you M'aap, but I'm not changing my style just for you or anyone else who might agree with you. I'm always gonna be me and I don't apologize for that. If you don't like how I do podcasts, then move on with your life. You won't hurt my feelings in any way and you'll be much happier somewhere else. But for the hundreds of thousands of people who DO like what I do on my shows that air five days a week, they will continue to reap the incredible benefits of the high-quality low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet stuff we bring them consistently week after week, year after year.

Finally, I agree that Dr. Nally is a bona fide superstar and could easily have a show to himself if he chose to do it (although, truth be told, I do all of the recording, planning, preparation of questions, post-production audio work, and more to take that off of him because of his narrow window of availability he has for doing the show--so a Doc Muscles solo podcast would likely never happen). The fact is we complement each other on Keto Talk with his clinical experience and massive knowledge combined with my patient experience and real world keto living. And since that's not changing anytime soon, I guess you'll need to put up with my "childish," "negative," "useless" and "annoying" input or move on with your life to another show. Either way, the show will continue to thrive with or without you.
