Marion Hauser And Nicole Baird Make Metabolic Typing Fun With Animals

Filed under: Health — @ April 13, 2010

I think more than anything else, people are looking for practicality in their pursuit of health and they’re not at all interested in the diet wars that seem to pervade our culture. They don’t care about low-carb vs. low-fat, meat-eating vs. veganism, or any of the things that the media tends to latch on to when it comes to weight loss and healthy living. Instead, they want to know what to eat to maximize their own personal health and realize there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all way of eating. Today’s podcast guests know abundantly well the truth in that statement.

In Episode 351 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are happy to welcome Oak Park, IL-based registered dietitian Marion Hauser and Certified Holistic Fitness Practitioner Nicole Baird, authors of a unique diet book entitled The Hauser Diet: A Fresh Look At Healthy Living! Marion and Nicole bring a fun analogy to nutrition by assigning a specific animal to particular ways of eating, including LION (high protein), OTTER (modified high protein), BEAR (half protein, half carbs), MONKEY (low fat), and GIRAFFE (vegetarian). Listen to them talk about how Marion became disillusioned by the conventional low-fat wisdom when her patients didn’t get better, the way Nicole met the Hausers ten years ago when she needed to make some personal nutritional changes, why consuming fresh, real foods is best, how our government got to have such a monolithic view of diet, what Marion thinks about Dr. Atkins and his diet, why calories in/calories out is not the answer, how you can determine which animal you are, the importance of pH balance, why they describe the Lion diet as “high protein” instead of high fat, the individualized nature of diets, how the 2010 Dietary Guidelines could fall within The Hauser Diet principles, why it’s important to move away from “sweet” tastes and more towards savory, how to get people to break their addiction to sweet-tasting foods, the plethora of recipes included in the book, the story behind The Hauser Diet iPhone app, and their work with prolotherapy.
