Louisiana Eats: Keto, Carbs & Cocktails


Whether your dietary concerns are based on weight loss, muscle gain, or heart health, there's so much information and professional advice out there that it's hard to know who to believe or what to eat. On this week's show, we hear from the experts on everything from the current diet du jour, keto, to omega-3 supplements.

Internal medicine physician Mignonne Mary of the Remedy Room explains why she has been teaching keto since she first began her practice, and why she believes combining the diet with intermittent fasting may help reduce inflammation in the body.

Nina Teicholz spent nine years researching her international bestseller The Big Fat Surprise, which advocates a diet of meat, cheese, dairy, and eggs. She helps us trace the story of how dietary fat was scapegoated as the source of America's health problems. We also hear from The Omega Principle author Paul Greenberg, who made some surprising discoveries when investigating the highly popular omega-3 supplement.

Finally, how can you have a cocktail lounge when there's not a drop of alcohol involved? To answer that question, we meet Lorelei Bandrovschi, founder and owner of Listen Bar in New York City. Listen Bar is one of a growing number of a booze-free bars popping up across the country that's mixing up the way people are thinking about drinking.
