    What is a species appropriate human diet? In this week's episode of The Fundamental Health podcast Nick Bare interviews me and we dive deep into many of my nutritional ideas that buck the norm…. Meat and organs are the best foods for humans on the planet… They don't cause cancer, and can be raised in ways that nourish the ecosystems and the environment… Contrary to what we have been told, vegetables are not entirely benign and come with many plant defense chemicals…. For many people, eliminating vegetables (leaves, stems, roots, seeds) improves gut issues, mood, skin issues, sleep, and body composition… The least toxic part of plants are fruit, the sugars found within these in a food matrix do not cause insulin resistance/ metabolic dysfunction… Honey is sought around the world and has many benefits… For those who tolerate dairy, raw milk and cheese are also incredibly nutritious… Organs, meat, fruit, honey- this is a #carnivoreish diet aka an #animalbased diet.  Welcome to #theremembering    Time Stamps: 0:09:50 Podcast begins 0:12:00 Recounting my need for new food framework  0:21:35 Going all-in with the carnivore diet 0:23:34 The big keto fallacy 0:26:55 The value of carbohydrates in the human diet 0:34:57 Issues with long-term keto, gas, glucose, and insulin 0:41:17 My experience going raw vegan 0:42:46 How I approach fruit, honey, and the plant toxicity spectrum  0:46:39 What is fruit.. really? 0:47:22 How I structure my daily meals 0:55:05 The power of organ meats 1:07:45 Food quality and tracking calories 1:09:20 Gut health, vegetables, and plant-based diets 1:18:42 Butyrate, short chain fatty acids, and fiber 1:21:53 This diet is more than bacon, steak, and eggs 1:27:13 The importance of eating meat fat 1:38:15 Issues that I have seen patients come in with and how diet can improve those issues 1:43:30 My take on 'The Gamechangers' film 1:57:39 The first step I take with new patients 2:00:08 Linoleic acid and what type of meat I eat 2:05:00 How do I eat out? 2:11:36 Roam ranch and soil regeneration  2:13:19 Big takeaways from this episode   Sponsors: Heart & Soil: www.heartandsoil.co  White Oak Pastures: www.Whiteoakpastures.com, use code: CarnivoreMD for 10% off your first order The Cold Plunge: TheColdPlunge.com, use code CarnivoreMD for $111 off your cold plunge Joovv: www.joovv.com/paul and get an exclusive discount on the generation 3.0 devices

    Can meat be part of a "sustainable" diet?

    Play Episode Listen Later Nov 5, 2021 25:19


    Short answer, yes.    All conversations about sustainability must take into account the nutritional value of the foods they recommend, as well as the long term effects on ecosystems with producing those foods.   Plant foods, especially grains like corn, soy, etc. fail miserably on both of these counts.    It's time to tell it like it really is. Well-raised beef is one of the MOST sustainable foods to include in your diet and monocrop plant foods are the LEAST sustainable foods you can possibly eat,    #theremembering 

    Cholesterol on an Animal Based Diet, with Dave Feldman

    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 be 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 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.  Time Stamps: 0:09:20 Podcast begins with Dave Feldman 0:09:45 Responding to the common question: "I feel so good on Animal-Based, but my cholesterol is sky high.
