An Interview With My Good Friend and Colleague, Dr. Christiane Northrup About Her New Book, Goddesses Never Age

FL: What prompted you to write Goddesses Never Age?

CN: Like my earlier books, Women’s Bodies Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause, I wrote Goddesses Never Age after a fairly long period of introspection, action, and research. The material for Goddesses Never Age was born out of the ashes of my divorce at midlife, and my subsequent desire to reinvent myself. At the time I was confronted with the cultural belief that my best years were behind me, and that women over the age of 50 aren’t as desirable or attractive. I realize this all sounds melodramatic, but I was concerned that I would never find love, that I would be alone forever.

Interview with Kathie Swift About Her New Book “The Swift Diet”

Dr. L: It seems like every month brings us the latest, greatest diet book. Why contribute to the glut?

Kathie: Believe me, I’m as tired of these magic formula for losing weight as anybody: “eat this number of calories or this ratio of carbs/fats/protein for Phase 1, then for Phase 2…” Almost nobody can follow these formulas for very long. Writing The Swift Diet was for me a chance to celebrate the importance of healthy whole foods, especially vegetables, fruits and legumes. I’m translating the nutritional science onto the plate.

Interview with Jimmy Moore About His New Book “Keto Clarity”

Dr L: What is Ketosis?

Jimmy Moore: Put simply, ketosis is a metabolic state that happens when you consume a customized low-carb, moderate-protein, high-fat diet that causes your body to switch from using glucose as its primary source of fuel to running mostly on ketones and fatty acids. Ketones themselves are produced when the body burns fat, and they’re used as an alternative fuel source when glucose isn’t available. In other words, your body changes from being a sugar-burner to a fat-burner. It’s a completely normal and natural state that happens within a few days to a few weeks in most people who reduce their carbohydrate intake, moderate their protein consumption, and consume dietary fat, especially saturated fat, to satiety.

A Patient Story: Autoimmunity, Inflammation and the Be Well Cleanse

By changing her diet and adding in some key supplements, she was able to reduce the severity of her symptoms, see improvement in her bloodwork, and have her inflammatory markers return to normal values. Here is her story:

Conversation with Jonathan Bailor on Protein

Dr L: Is Protein Heart Healthy?

Jonathan: The Journal of the American Medical Association reviewed a whopping 147 studies on diet’s impact on health and found zero correlation between meat consumption and cardiovascular disease. [1] Further, distinguished researcher Dr. Halton at Harvard University found: “Exchange protein for carbohydrates [eating protein in place of carbs] has been shown to improve blood lipids [cholesterol], and in epidemiologic [observational] studies, higher protein diets have been associated with lower blood pressure and reduced risk of coronary heart disease.”

THE BIG FAT SURPRISE
Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. A Conversation with Nina Teicholz

A Conversation with investigative journalist, Nina Teicholz, author of THE BIG FAT SURPRISE: Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

I love this book for many reasons, the most important being, that in it, Nina reveals the unthinkable: that everything we thought we knew about dietary fats is wrong. Combining scientific rigor with riveting storytelling, she argues that more, not less fat—including the saturated fats in meat, dairy and eggs—is what leads to better health and weight loss.
