Episode 38: Trans Fats and the Magic Pill

038: Trans Fats and The Magic Pill Released: June 28, 2018 Abby is back! Join her and Anne as they discuss the news about the banning of trans fats from the US food supply and the documentary The Magic Pill. Before we go any further into our show notes for this episode: apologies for the sound quality in this episode. We moved on piece of furniture in the room where we record and apparently that turned the room into a bottomless chasm. We learned our lesson and will be back to former quality in our next episode, which will be in early August. We are taking July off for the summer. News Artificial trans fats are officially banned from supermarkets and restaurants in the US. Three years ago, food producers were given a June 18, 2018 deadline to remove trans fats from their products. Since then, 98% of trans fats have been removed. They have been linked to a myriad of health woes including diabetes and heart disease. Will America as a whole see a decline in this chronic illnesses like ...

Episode 38: Trans Fats and the Magic Pill

Episode 037: Insulin, AMPK and mTOR

037: Insulin, AMPK, and mTOR Released: June 14, 2018 News The Express UK had a story recently on a recommendation made by the Arthritis Foundation that people stop using vegetable oils. Industrially produced vegetable oils, such as corn, afflower, sunflow, soy, and canola oils, contain large amounts of omega-6 oils. While omega-6 oils are necessary for our bodies, the American diet tends to involve way more omega-6 fats than we need, to the point that they can interfere with the proper functionality of our bodies and, in some cases, may promote cancer. Rather, the Arthritis Foundation recommends people swap their liquid oils to healthier olive oil. As proponents of low-carb, high-fat eating, we also recommend coconut oil, avocado oil, butter, or bacon grease. Insulin, AMPK, and mTOR Adam has been reading a lot of Dr. Jason Fung's work lately, and took the time in this episode to give a brief overview of insulin, AMPK, and mTOR. Insulin is a hormone produced in our bodies when we inc...

Episode 36: Italian Food

036: Italian Food Released: May 31, 2018 Adam and Anne chat about different ways you can still enjoy Italian food, either at home or in a restaurant, and keept it LCHF. News But first, our news for the week: CNN reports that childhood obesity is on the rise in Mediterranean countries. As the local diet shifts to include more sugars processed foods and activity levels decline, childhood obesity is spreading through several Mediterranean coutries. We're watching what happens as a traditional diet loses ground to the modern, processed food diet in real time, and the results are not encouraging. Italian Foods You can still enjoy Italian foods when you're eating a low-carb, high-fat diet. First, you need to rethink what it means to eat Italian food--it's not just massive bowls of pasta. In Italy, the pasta is a small course that's not meant to fill you up. Focus on the antipasti (appetizers) that generally include meats, cheese, and veggies, and the secondi course, which usually involves...

Episode 34: Campfire Foods

034: Campfire Foods Released: May 10, 2018 How can your family navigate the memory-making campfire without turning it into a massive sugar bomb? The LCHF Family taste-tested and tinkered with a meal's worth or recipes and came up with a meal that involves cooking on sticks, big flavor, and--yes--dessert.

Episode 33: Mastering the Meat Counter

033: Mastering the Meat Counter. Released: May 3, 2018 Adam and Anne chat about the new documentary about low-carb, high fat diets that Vinnie Tortorich will be crowdsourcing. To stay up to date on information about its progress, text NSNG to 228-28. Adam was a butcher for a few years and shares what he knows about various cuts of meat and how to make sure you're getting the best you can afford. This episode is jam packed with information for those of you (like Anne) who have always felt less than prepared to pick the best meats. When picking steaks, you want to look for the whitish lines and specks inside the muscle tissue. This is called "marbling" and is actually fat inside the muscle. The more fat, the more tender and flavorful the steak will be. The bone in a T-bone steak is actually a vertebrea shaped like a plus sign that has been cut in half vertically. As you pick a T-bone steak, think of the meat on either side of the bone as forming two quadrants. The larger quadrant is t...

LCHF Ideas for Passover and Easter

A Word of Wisdom

029: A Word of Wisdom. Released: March 15, 2018 In this episode, Anne takes on the most asked question LCHF Family has received so far. But first, what is the best option when you really need to eat and your only option is McDonald's? Anne played with their online nutritional calculator and came up with the following: Best lunch or dinner: A Grand Big Mac with no bun, Big Mac sauce or cheese (300 calories, 23 grams of fat, 2 grams of carbs, and 25 grams of protein) eaten with or on a dry Side Salad (15 calories, 0 grams of fat, 3 grams of carbs, and 1 gram of protein). Best Breakfast Option: If you are NSNG, opt for one or more Egg McMuffins with no muffin or cheese (110 calories, 7 grams of fat, 1 gram of carbs, and 10 grams of protein each). If you are just generally eating low carb, high fat, get the Big BReakfast with no biscuit or hash browns (340 calories, 29 grams of fat, 2 grams of carbs, 19 grams of protein). Curious why you shouldn't opt for chicken or a salad? Wondering a...
