In today’s episode of Dana’s Low-Carb For Life! Dana looks at whole foods (notice the lower case letters), and how the store of the same name doesn’t really sell “Whole Foods” for those on an animal-based diet. How can you get more bones, gelatin and organ meats into your diet without the “yuck factor”? Dana has tips! Plus new research on the long term benefits of a Ketogenic diet!

  1. I have become a regular listener to your podcasts & especially enjoyed your show about whole foods. You make some excellent points.

    I was born in England, [65 years ago], and like you, lambs’ kidneys were standard fare in my diet. Also calves’ liver, beef tongue sandwiches, and a favorite – brain on toast for breakfast. Really. LOL

    I don’t eat liver & kidney any more b/c I’ve been told they are garbage pits – not safe to eat. Do you have an opinion about that?

    We do give beef kidney to our dog when we can find it. We have given her a BARF diet for years.

    Keep up the good work. Your delivery is fun to listen to, and the content always interesting/informative.

  2. Just read #17 about whole foods and would like to suggest a way to make liver sausage your self, based on old fashioned chopped liver recipe.
    1. Boil 6 eggs. cut up
    2. Saute large onion in butter.
    3. Saute 1# chicken or beef livers in some more butter.
    4. Using a food processor or stick blender or meat chopper, chop all together.
    5. Add more butter or chicken fat if needed.
    6. Season with garlic, salt, and pepper.
    The finer it is chopped, the more it has texture of liver sausage.

  3. The smart dieter does not wolf down his or her meal and then look for a second or third helping. On the other hand, a dieter does not skip a meal in order to obtain more time for completion of other tasks.Does this sound familiar? This is the typical thing I hear throughout the day. However, the above statements are goals and not really plans on how to accomplish those goals. The plan to accomplish these goals are the typical sticking points in everyone’s diets. I see this with women and their diets more often than men because they want to lose the weight but not gain any muscle.
