Description

Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion: Western medicine isn’t helping people lead better lives. Now that I’ve realized this, I’ve become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you’ll join me on this journey.

Cow farts are killing the planet! Or are they? A Conversation with Peter Ballerstedt, PhD
01:39:38

Peter Ballerstedt earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Georgia and his doctorate at the University of Kentucky.  He was the forage extension specialist at Oregon State University from 1986 to 1992. He currently works in the forage seed industry.

Peter’s personal experience has led him to re-examine human diet and health. What he has learned doesn’t agree with the advice given for the past several decades. This new understanding combined with his forage background has given him an increased passion for the key to true social, economic and ecological sustainability – ruminant animal production systems – the source of butter, red meat, and cheese! 

Peter has spoken at many different events in the US and internationally. Many of his presentations are available on YouTube (http://bit.ly/2JJDJpE). He blogs at “Grass Based Health” (http://bit.ly/2XaRdxv) and Facebook (http://bit.ly/2wsNBes), and posts to twitter and Instagram @GrassBased. Peter and Nancy live in western Oregon with their two dogs Conor and Noni.

Carnivore critiques answered!
01:58:28

I was getting sick of people throwing shade at the carnivore diet with misrepresentations of the facts so I wanted to fight back with an episode in which I answered each and every one of these criticisms in detail. My buddy Nathan joined me for this one and we dug into it with reckless abandon. The links to the original articles are noted below but SelfHacked.com and Chris Kresser were the folks we were responding to!

Why everything you’ve been told about cholesterol is probably wrong! A conversation with Dave Feldman.
02:10:26

If you are interested in lipids, you’ve probably heard of Dave Feldman and his work. If not,  you’ve got some homework to do, and I think you’ll be amazed at what you find. Dave’s work can found at cholesterolcode.com where he details his multiple, meticulous self-experimental projects. Prior to cholesterol adventures Dave was a senior software scientist and an engineer. He brings this “out of the box” thinking to the world of medicine and we are all a better off for it.

 

He began a low-carb, high-fat diet in April 2015 and has since learned everything he could about it with special emphasis on cholesterol. He saw his own lipid numbers spike substantially after going on the diet and spotted a pattern in the lipid system that’s very similar to distributed objects in networks.

 

He’s since learned quite a bit on the subject both through research and experimentation which has revealed some very powerful data (see his Cholesterol Code series Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, and Part V).

As of this writing, his “Extreme Drop” experiment has gotten the most attention (see infographic here, and do-it-yourself page here) where he induced a 73 point drop in my LDL-C and a 1115 point drop in my LDL-P.

 

In this show we discuss Dave’s recent talk at Keto Salt Lake which can be found on YouTube here:

Mark and Chris Bell: Why you should never give up on your dreams and how to be jacked and tan!
01:21:06

If you don't know who the Bell brother's are, you've probably been living under a rock! These are some pretty darn incredible dudes that no quick bio can do justice to but here’s my shot.

Simply put, Mark Bell is basically super human. He calls himself a “meathead millionaire” but don’t let that fool you. He’s invented numerous powerlifting products, most notably the slingshot, which have changed the way people lift large amounts of weight and made him into an icon in that sport. He also founded the largest free (yes you heard that right) gym in the word, in Sacramento, California, where he continues to train on a daily basis. His past powerlifting accomplishments are jaw dropping but the thing I appreciate most about Mark is what a genuine, good human he is. He tells a bit of his story in this episode, you don’t want to miss it.

Chris Bell’s story is equally amazing. Previously addicted to drugs and alcohol, now shredded and lifting huge amounts of weight with two artificial hips whilst eating a 99% carnivorous diet. He’s well know for his much acclaimed film projects including Bigger Stronger,Faster,  Prescription Thugs, and a Leaf of Faith. He’s currently working on a project about human nutrition and the ways we’ve all been led astray.

In this episode we talk about all kinds of cool things including the story of Mark’s invention of the slingshot, why he never gave up on this, Chris’ take on the nose to tail carnivore movement, both of the brother’s experiences with the carnivore diet and where they think the future of food is going.

Please enjoy this conversation with the Brother’s Bell.
