Filed under: Health — @ June 12, 2009

PODCAST UPDATE: Well, despite the fact that I’ve been hammering away at all the exciting changes that are happening at my podcast show right now, there have been numerous e-mail inquiries from listeners this week asking me where the new episodes on iTunes are. Well, I’ve got GOOD NEWS–you can access them on iTunes by simply subscribing to the new podcast web site feed for “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.” Please click on the feed link to get all the new shows as they come out on Mondays and Thursdays and we appreciate your patience during this transitionary period of moving the old episodes over to the new podcast web site. We hope to have all this fixed in the near future. THANK YOU!

Weston A. Price Foundation Founder and President Sally Fallon

There are some really genuine leaders out there on the front lines in the high-fat, low-carb movement and I’ve always been an admirer of the work so many people out there are doing on behalf of this healthy way of eating. With all the endless negativity about fat and even saturated fat that still exists to this day, it’s nice to have voices of truth who can articulate why the continued fat-phobia is really much ado about nothing. Today we have one of the most renowned names in the field of high-fat nutrition today.

In Episode 261 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Sally Fallon who serves as the Founder and President of The Weston A. Price Foundation as she discusses the work she is doing promoting traditional high-fat eating. You may have seen her amazing books co-written with Dr. Mary Enig entitled Eat Fat, Lose Fat and the 1999 classic high-fat cookbook Nourishing Traditions. Listen to today’s interview to find out what Sally shares about who Weston Price was, why high-fat eating is superior, the startling continued success of her first book, what she thinks Gary Taubes left out of his classic 2007 release Good Calories, Bad Calories, what would make the Atkins diet even better, the best sources of fats to consume, why modern vegetable oils are poor choices for fats, the story behind how she met the great Dr. Mary Enig, and her unique take on some of the common objections to high-fat, low-carb living. This is one fabulous interview that I’ve been anxious to share with you. Soak it up for all it’s worth!
