  • In this week's podcast, we discuss hormonal birth control and all the problems that come along with taking the pill. The pill is one of the most over prescribed drugs in today’s world and half the women who are prescribed the pill, don't take it for birth control. They take it to manage hormonal issues for example acne and menstrual problems. The biggest complication with this is that it is only temporarily masking the issues causing the acne and menstrual problems instead of fixing the root of it. Those symptoms are likely to come back once you stop taking the pill and could come back even worse then before. 

    Hormonal birth control has many side effects and those side effects don't stop after you discontinue the pill. It has been shown that the pill can increase your odds of having a leaky gut which in itself increases your risk of developing an autoimmune disorder. This is one of the reasons woman are ten times more likely to develop autoimmune disorders over men. It’s been shown to negatively effect your thyroid too, which can drastically slow down your metabolism leading to weight gain. 

    We finish our conversation with recommendations on more natural non-hormonal forms of birth control, as well as some nutritional advice that can make getting off the pill become more smoothly. To learn more about the pill and how it really effects the female body, listen to this week's podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how to choose the best protein powder and whether or not you should take one.

    The vast majority of people don't consume enough protein throughout the day. The minimum amount of protein someone, who performs any sort of exercise, should be consuming (regardless of being male or female) is 1g of protein per pound of body weight. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you should try and eat 200 grams of protein per day. That is enough protein to support muscle health and the full development of muscle mass.

    Women are usually afraid to consume protein powder since they've heard that it will make them bulky and gain "too much" muscle. This isn't true! Protein powder can and should be taken by women without the fear that it will change their physique in an undesirable way. 

    Consuming enough protein everyday can be extremely difficult for some people. If you're active and find that you can't eat enough, then you should really consider taking a protein powder. The highest quality protein powders are animal based. The gold standard is whey protein. Whey protein should be the first choice for anyone looking for a protein powder. Plant based protein powders are usually contaminated with high levels of heavy metals. They aren't bioavailable and don't contain every amino acid needed to fully support your muscles.

    To learn more about why animal based protein powders are the best, how, and when to consume protein powder, listen to this week's podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss a training technique called blood flow restriction. This technique involves tying a tourniquet around one of your limbs to partially block arterial flow from the heart and completely block venous return to the heart. 

    The technique is short and sweet. It's designed to maximize the stress on your muscles to induce growth in a short period of time. One monster set consisting of 30 reps followed by 3 sets of 15 reps separated by a 30 second break (all while the tourniquet is still wrapped on your limb) is all you need to experience the benefits of this training style. 

    What are some of the benefits? Increased muscle size and strength, as well as decreased soreness, allowing you to train your muscles more frequently throughout the week.

    There's no worry of increased chances for injury, as this has been studied and BFR has been found to be safe and effective. 

    To learn more about BFR and all its benefits, listen to this week's podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss ways to optimize your immune system. With the global Covid-19 pandemic, people are more concerned than ever about having a strong immune system. Luckily for you, we discuss ways in which you can prime your immune system to be as strong as possible. 

    The best way to ensure you have a healthy immune system is to ensure you have a diet that is high in two essential nutrients: Zinc and Vitamin D. Zinc and Vitamin D both play a huge role in keeping our immune system healthy. The best source for these nutrients are going to be animal sources. Beef is an excellent source of bioavailable zinc, and lard or cod liver oil are great sources of Vitamin D. 

    Another strategy to keep your immune system healthy is to maintain low blood sugar values. High blood sugar compromises our immune system and makes it weaker. Therefore, following a low carb diet that excludes grains and simple sugars will allow your immune system to stay strong all year round. To learn about more ways to optimize your immune system, listen to this week's podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how and why we age and ways to increase your lifespan. There are various theories out there that try and explain how and why we age. Such theories include the telomere theory and the free radical theory, however, we believe that the mitochondrial theory of aging is the best theory to date that explains how and why we get old and accumulate cellular damage leading to degenerative diseases as we get older.

    This theory focuses on the free radicals generated via the electron transport chain in the mitochondria and their role in aging. They serve as a signal for the overall health of the cell, informing the mitochondria if the cell is functioning properly or not. 

    There are ways to extend your life naturally and the biggest factor is going to be a healthy diet that contains all the nutrients that your mitochondria need to perform optimally. This would be an animal based diet that is high in all vitamins and minerals that our mitochondria needs. 

    To learn more about the mitochondrial theory of aging, listen to this week's podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we continue our series on the ketogenic diet and the various conditions it can help with. This week we focus on epilepsy, which is a condition that causes individuals to suffer from seizures. Without proper management, this disease can prevent people from living normal lives; they can't drive a car, they can't keep a job. It is debilitating. 

    About 1/3 of all epilepsy cases are considered refractory, meaning they don't respond to medication. For these people, the ketogenic diet is usually the only viable option to have relief from their symptoms. 

    The ketogenic diet affects epilepsy in numerous ways, but at its core, it revolves around getting your blood glucose down, decreasing the excitability capacity of your brain, as well as increasing the seizure threshold.

    To learn more about how a low carb ketogenic diet can help manage epilepsy, listen to this week's podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how the ketogenic diet can help prevent you from getting Alzheimer's disease (AD). AD is a common, progressive, neurodegenerative disease that primarily affects older people in their 70’s and 80’s.

    People suffering from AD have gross structural changes in their brains, such as loss of neurons in the hippocampus area of the brain. That's the area of the brain that plays a major role in memory and learning. 

    The cause of AD has been the subject of debate. The current favored model is the amyloid cascade hypothesis, which proposes that peptides generated from the amyloid precursor protein are the causative factor, and reducing the generation or accumulation of these peptides will treat the disease. This theory revolves around the build up of this amyloid plaque in the brain; the more amyloid plaque in the brain, the higher your chances of getting AD. You can think of this almost like plaque build up on your teeth. The more plaque on your teeth, the higher chances you have of getting cavities.

    Alzheimer's disease is the major cause of age-related cognitive decline, with approximately 5.4 million Americans affected and 30 million affected globally. 

    There are no effective drugs out there; billions of dollars has been spent on research and there’s nothing to show for it. 

    We want to look at how AD can be better managed on a low carb, ketogenic diet. We truly believe in the power of food as medicine. The ketogenic diet is the optimal human diet that gives your body the best chance to heal from all of life's traumas. To learn more about AD and how a low carb diet can help you better manage it, listen to this week's podcast. Link's to studies mentioned available on website.

  • In this week's podcast, we continue our conversation on how the ketogenic diet can be used to help prevent you from getting cancer.Cancer is a disease that affects us all in some way or another, so I believe it is very important for people to understand how cancer really works and why going on a low carb diet is one of the best things you can do to help you avoid ever getting it. Right now there are two competing theories on how we should view cancer: the gene theory, which focuses on damage to DNA and how that effects the cell cycle, and the metabolic theory, which focuses on the dysfunctional metabolism of cancer cells.I truly believe the metabolic theory of cancer is correct. The gene theory has taken charge of most of the research and development of a cure for the past 40 years and nothing has come of it. We are no closer today to a cure than we were 40 years ago and that’s because we’re viewing cancer through the wrong lens.If we were to focus on cancer through the lens of the metabolic theory, it would become very clear that cancer is a disease of dysfunctional metabolism. More specifically, damage done to our mitochondria sets the stage for a series of events that make our cells rely more and more on glycolysis and activates the genetic pathways that result in the cell becoming immortal. Cancer cells have dysfunctional mitochondria that prevents them from efficiently metabolizing fatty acids and ketone bodies. This forces them to rely on sugar for the majority of their energy. This sets the stage for cancer. When cancer cells increase their capability to burn glucose, called the retrograde response, they also turn on genes that prevent cancer cells from dying. Now the cells rely heavily on sugar for fuel and won’t die. This is cancer!The best way to avoid this from happening to you is to limit the amount of fuel these cancer cells have access to; this is the ketogenic diet. This low carb diet sets the stage that prevents cancer from ever developing. To learn more about how the ketogenic diet can help prevent cancer, listen to this week’s podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how the ketogenic diet can put autoimmune conditions in remission. 

    Autoimmune disorders come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from type 1 diabetes to ulcerative colitis, resulting in many different symptoms, but they all have the same root cause: leaky gut. Damage to the intestinal wall allows undigested food particles to enter our blood supply that can eventually lead to an immune response. Our immune system recognizes these undigested food particles as foreign invaders and tries to eliminate them. This is the proper response. However, overtime the immune system can become hyperactive and mistake our own cells as one of these foreign invaders, known as cellular mimicry, and it will start to attack our own cells as if they're not supposed to be there. This is what happens when you develop an autoimmune disease. 

    None of this would happen if the intestinal barrier remained intact and strong. So what's the quickest way to destroy our gut? Eating foods that are rich in lectins such as gluten from wheat. Gluten activates a protein called zonulin,  which breaks down the tight gap junctions between our intestinal cells and allows particles to get past them. So removing these toxic foods is a must if you want to heal your gut. 

    Luckily, all foods that are very high in gluten are not allowed on the ketogenic diet. Foods like oatmeal and bread. Therefore, a properly formulated ketogenic diet will give your GI tract time to heal. Once that happens, your body can finally start fighting back against the autoimmune condition. To learn more about how the ketogenic diet can help put autoimmune conditions in remission, listen to this week's podcast. Links to studies mentioned available on website.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how the ketogenic diet can help cure gout. Gout is a build up of uric acid in the blood. Once uric acid gets too a high enough point in the blood, it precipitates out into the soft tissues throughout our body, usually in the hands and feet. The classic spot is the big toe! This can be extremely painful and debilitating for people suffering a gout flair up. 

    It's common knowledge amongst physicians that gout is caused by uric acid. But where does uric acid come from? It comes from something called purines. There are multiple sources of purines, however, this has caused many doctors to blame purines from protein-rich foods like red meat for gout flair ups, causing them to recommend a low purine diet for the management of gout. This is not a good recommendation or method to lower uric acid in the blood! Research shows that a diet low in purines is ineffective at lowering uric acid levels. Uric acid gets elevated to a harmful point when our kidneys stop excreting adequate amounts of uric acid. What's the signal telling our kidneys to reabsorb uric acid instead of excreting it? Insulin! Our kidneys can excrete a lot of uric acid when they don't get the cue from insulin to reabsorb it. 

    Insulin is the hormone that gets elevated when you eat carbohydrates. Chronically elevated insulin, called hyperinsulinemia, and insulin resistance are the true drivers of gout, not protein-rich foods! To learn why insulin drives gout, not meat, listen to this week's podcast. Links to studies mentioned available on website.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how the ketogenic diet can improve heart health. The current heart healthy diet promoted by the American Heart Association is a low fat, high carb diet. This diet couldn't be farther from "heart healthy" if it tried. A truly heart healthy diet provides adequate amounts of fat for the heart to use as fuel. A well formulated ketogenic diet is high in saturated fat which is the heart's preferred fuel source. The heart is our bodies' hardest working organ. It pumps blood 24/7 365 for our entire lives. So it's crucial that it receives enough energy to do this job properly. The best and most efficient way to produce ATP, which is the fuel source used by our cells, is oxidative phosphorylation inside our mitochondria. Fat is only burned in this fashion inside the mitochondria. So it makes sense that the heart loves fat so much. To learn more about why a high fat ketogenic diet is heart healthy, listen to this week's podcast. Links to studies mentioned on website.

  • In this week's podcast, we continue our conversation on diabetes and how a low carb diet can help put diabetes in remission. 

    I first wanted to clarify the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. A type 1 diabetic no longer produces insulin but a type 2 diabetic continues to produce insulin but their body no longer properly responds to insulin.

    Someone with type 1 diabetes will always have to take some insulin but it can be better managed on a ketogenic diet. However, someone with type 2 diabetes has a great chance of getting off insulin and completely reversing their diabetes if they follow a ketogenic diet long enough. 

    The current standard of care for diabetes is to give diabetics insulin, which is extremely stupid! Type 2 diabetes is a disease of too much insulin, therefore, you will never cure this disease by giving someone more insulin. Years of eating too many carbohydrates paired with fat will cause a person's pancreas to become dysfunctional, leading to diabetes. The alpha cells in the pancreas that produce glucagon no longer listen to the normal suppressive effects insulin has on endogenous glucose production.

    Normally, when you eat carbohydrates, your body breaks down the carbohydrates into glucose, elevating blood sugar levels. This is normal, and occurs for everyone. However, in a diabetic, their livers will produce glucose via gluconeogenesis, on top of the ingested carbohydrates. This is the vicious cycle of diabetes and results in chronically elevated blood sugars. 

    To learn more about diabetes and how a low carb diet can help reverse it, listen to this week's podcast. Links to studies mentioned available on website.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how the ketogenic diet can reverse diabetes. Despite what traditional medical professionals tell you, diabetes doesn't have to be a chronic lifelong condition. It can be reversed. 

    Low carb intervention can reverse diabetes because at its core, diabetes is a disease of too much fat accumulation. Years of bad eating, meaning pairing high carb and high fat meals together, lead to an accumulation of fat in cells in places like our liver, pancreas and muscles. This is called ectopic fat. Once this occurs, your body is no longer able to maintain a healthy blood sugar value and your blood sugar goes sky high. 

    The trick to reversing diabetes is to get the fat out of these tissues that don't want it. The best way to do that is to go low carb. Switching to a ketogenic diet will lower your blood insulin levels and give your body the opportunity to mobilize the fat out of your internal organs and burn it for fuel. Once this occurs, your cells will slowly start to become more sensitive to insulin and you will officially be on the road to recovery!

    To learn more about how a ketogenic diet can reverse diabetes, listen to this week's podcast Link to studies mentioned available on website.

  • In this week's podcast, we continue our conversation on therapeutic aspects of the ketogenic diet. More specifically, how the ketogenic diet affects the NADH/NAD ratio. What's that you might ask?

    Well, NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It's a cofactor found in every cell in our body and is a pivotal player in numerous reactions throughout our entire body.

    We focused on the role of NAD as it pertains to the proteins called sirtuins. Sirtuins are a group of proteins that control how old or young our cells are. When they're active, they're able to perform a process called deacetylation, which is very important within our cells. Removing acetyl groups from proteins allows them to be acted upon and puts them in their "active" form, meaning they're now able to do work.

    One of these proteins is histone. Histones are a group of proteins that our DNA wraps itself around for protection. When they have an acetyl group on them, our DNA is unwound and unprotected. However, in the presence of NAD, sirtuins are capable of removing that acetyl group, allowing our DNA to wrap back around the histones for protection. This is just one of the ways sirtuins keep our cells young.

    A high carb diet depletes the body of NAD, which limits the ability of sirtuins to do their job. A ketogenic diet regenerates NAD, giving sirtuins the tools they need to perform optimally. To learn more, listen to this week's podcast.

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss the problems with relying on carbs as your primary fuel source. Compared to fat, carbs are simply too dirty as a fuel source to rely on every day. Topic of the podcast starts at the 7-minute mark.

    Carbohydrates have to first be pre-processed in the cytosol of our cell to pyruvate before they can enter our mitochondria for aerobic respiration. This pre-processing produces potent toxins in our body, like methylglyoxal.

    Methylglyoxal is a potent glycating agent that damages our DNA and mitochondria. This toxic compound is responsible for most of the ailments associated with diabetes like high blood pressure and poor wound healing.

    The amount of carbs we eat directly increase the amount of methylglyoxal in our bodies and leads to more cellular damage. So a high carb diet is damaging in this way.

    Ingesting fat has none of these pitfalls. Fats don't cause glycation and don't need to be pre-processed before entering our mitochondria. They can be directly taken into our mitochondria by L-Carnitine. This is one of the reasons that relying on fat for your primary fuel source is better. To learn more about the benefits of fat, listen to this week's podcast. Link to studies mentioned on website.

  • In this week’s podcast, we interview Travis Statham. Travis is a huge advocate of the carnivore diet and has a deep knowledge of the history and science behind it. With that in mind, we brought him on to talk about humans being classified as facultative carnivores instead of a strictly omnivorous species. A facultative carnivore is defined as a species that thrives optimally on a meat based diet. The definition isn’t concerned about what humans can eat, but rather about what humans should eat and were designed to eat.

    The are many reasons why humans should be classified as facultative carnivores which include, but are not limited to:

    Stomach Structure and pH
    GI Tract
    Anatomy

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how to do the keto diet properly. There's a lot of misinformation on the internet about the ketogenic diet, including promoting various highly processed foods as keto-approved. That's what prompted us to do this episode. 

    The foundation of a properly formulated ketogenic diet is a reduction of dietary carbohydrates. Ideally, you would keep your total daily carbs to 30 grams or less a day. Some proponents of the keto diet do not count carbs from green leafy vegetables or fiber, however, we believe you should still count these sources towards your daily carb count. At the end of the day, they still contribute to the amount of glucose you're taking in.  

    You want to ensure the bulk of your calories come from fat. This is going to be your primary fuel source. Ideally, you would get both your fat and dietary protein from natural whole foods. Something like a ribeye steak would be a perfect keto meal. Steak is an awesome source of protein as well as fatty acids. 

    Can you eat steak or bacon and eggs everyday on the keto diet? Yes! This makes it way more sustainable than most people think. No one ever gets sick of bacon and eggs.

    To learn more about some keto approved meals and ways to do keto right, listen to this week's podcast!

  • In this week's podcast, we discuss how the keto diet affects the performance of athletes.

    It is stated often that you need carbohydrates to perform optimally in competition, that you need carbs to perform explosive style movements. 

    This isn't inherently wrong, however, what is wrong is the idea that you need to consume carbohydrates to achieve this state. You don't need to consume any carbohydrates in your diet to contain adequate amounts of stored sugar in our muscles in the form of glycogen.

    It has been shown that low carb athletes have just as much glycogen, which is glucose stored in muscle, as high-carb athletes. This means they suffer no ill effects from their low carb diet on competition day. 

    An advantage that these fat-adapted athletes have, however, is that they better burn fat for fuel over athletes that rely on carbohydrates for their main energy source. This means they can perform harder for longer without burning out.

    To find out more about the benefits of the keto diet for athletes, check out this week's podcast.
