Nutritionist Monica Reinagel talks openly about low-carb dieting
My history with nutritionists and dietitians while talking about the healthy low-carb lifestyle has not been a very good one. I've had my fair share of run-ins with them here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. Yes, I've had my way of eating poked, prodded, and pranced upon by these self-righteous purveyors of their version of dietary truth for so long I was beginning to wonder if a right-minded thinking nutritionist even existed anymore.
Well, there's at least ONE. :)
In Episode 121 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore", we meet licensed nutritionist Monica Reinagel, M.S., C.N.S. who runs an outstanding diet and health blog called NutritionData. She is also the author of the fabulously original health book called The Inflammation-Free Diet Plan which outlines specific foods that are at the root cause of inflammation in the body. She discusses in her book and in my interview with you why you DON'T want inflammation and what foods you can eat which are least likely to be inflammatory (and it might just surprise you!).

Most nutritionists like to check their brain at the door whenever an honest discussion of livin' la vida low-carb ensues. But not Monica Reinagel. She's honest about what the research is showing regarding low-carb diets and quite frankly it is all over the board. Rather than follow what most of her colleagues do in roundly dismissing low-carb diets as a "dangerous fad" with "no long-term proof" that it is healthy, she instead challenges people to do what will work for them in producing weight loss--even that dastardly low-carb lifestyle if it will produce the results for your weight and health. HOW REFRESHING!!!

Now that you've heard Part 1 of my interview with Monica Reinagel, what did you think? Are you concerned at all about inflammation--arguably one of the hottest health topics being discussed in the medical industry today? Does she make sense with what she's saying or is she just another nutritionist who doesn't get it? You tell me by leaving a comment in the show notes section of Episode 121.
You'll want to listen to Part 2 of my interview with Monica Reinagel on Thursday's edition of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore." She's a really neat woman to talk to and I appreciated her willingness to let me do the interview over again a second time after the file from the first one became corrupted. EEEEK! Monica graciously agreed to do it again.
