‘Bloggeranza Week’ Interview: ‘Free The Animal’ By Richard Nikoley

Filed under: Health — @ April 7, 2010

We’re in the second day of my first-ever “Bloggeranza” featuring the best and brightest bloggers on the subject of low-carb, diet, health, and weight loss. Yesterday we heard from Matt Stone from “180 Degree Health” and today we have someone who is just about opposite as he can be. In Episode 347 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are excited to welcome an uber-fan of the podcast and primal living blogger named Richard Nikoley whose “Free The Animal” blog is one of the hottest health blogs online.

Listen to Richard talk about his personal weight struggle doing everything the right way, how he virtually lowered his high blood pressure overnight, the indelible influence of Art DeVany, his amazing 60-pound weight loss, what makes his blog different from other low-carb/Paleo blogs, why he’s backing away from dropping “f” bombs in his blog posts, the sudden explosion of traffic at his blog, the international press he’s getting, his infamous post on his decision to stop using soap and how it catapulted his blog traffic into the stratosphere, his passion to write a book about his experience, why he speaks so openly about the problems people in the low-carb/Paleo community have, the story behind choosing the name “Free The Animal” for his blog (he originally wanted “Feed The Animal” but the URL wasn’t available), what he eats and shares in his “food porn” pics on his blog, the growing importance of iodine for proper thyroid function, why grass-fed meats are preferred nutritionally but not necessary if you can’t afford it, the quality difference between grass-fed and grain-fed meat, cooking with the Eades’ Sous Vide Supreme, how he keeps himself motivated, why he’s not a total purist about food, the influence he’s had on improving his family’s health, why intermittent fasting and exercise was such an instrumental part of his success, and why he seems to be in such a rage all the time.

Click here to be enthralled by what you hear from a passionate man like Richard Nikoley because he’s just a regular guy who is doing some pretty extraordinary things for health.
