035 – Hot Topics, Volume 4 (with Maria Emmerich)

Maria Emmerich is the author of several books in the realm of low-carb and ketogenic diets. Despite being active in sports as a child, she was always on the heavy side of the scale. At the time, she thought nothing of it, thinking perhaps that’s just how she was supposed to look like. She then studied science and nutrition which resulted to her questioning the American diet we’re all so familiar with. She has since strived to spread what she learned through authoring books and multiple interviews with experts across the internet.

Today, Maria talks about the ketogenic diet, her take on true fasting, why she likes to cook with crock pots, and the link between estrogenic foods and fiber.

He’s able to balance maintaining multiple websites, writing books, and hosting podcasts and still have enough time for his family.

Jimmy tried a lot of fad diets that only made his life miserable. It wasn’t until his mother-in-law gave him Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution in January 2004 that he began to fully grasp the idea of what was keeping him from losing weight. He has since become one of the most popular names in the low-carb diet industry.

Today, Jimmy tells us his story, his many challenges, the events in his life that made him want to change, and the many advances in the ketogenic diet.
