Interview with Sally Krumdiack, Women’s MMA Champion, on Low-Carb

I first met Sally on the 2012 Low-Carb Cruise. Like me, she came in early for each of the educational sessions so she could sit on the first row. We ended up sitting next to each other for most of the sessions.

I noticed that she was intensely focused on each speaker. I didn’t actually speak with her at any length during that cruise, but I did learn that she was a women’s MMA fighter, and was very well-ranked. Continue reading

An Interview With Scott Merritt: Farming the Pastured/Grass-Fed Way

One of the folks that I had the privilege of chatting with while I was on the May 2013 Low-Carb Cruise was Scott Merritt, who discovered low-carb about 6 years ago.

I had the great pleasure of interviewing Dave Asprey, The Bulletproof Excutive, on the 2013 Low-Carb Cruise. Dave very graciously agreed to come to my cabin after the Monday session to chat on camera, even though he was pressed for time (his children were booked for a custom teddy bear construction activity, so we had only about 30 minutes to set up and get it done). We got a good 20 minutes of recording, and covered a remarkable amount of ground. Continue reading

Aluminum Toxicity from Antiperspirant?

When I saw Jimmy Moore just before the Low-Carb Cruise, I was surprised to see that he was sporting a burr haircut.
