Chronic Wasting Disease in Deer and Elk [15:52] Kristi says: Hi Robb and Nicki, I have a new fear just when I am already worried about the future of meat, transportation, the economy, etc. I bought some elk liver from a ranch that sells grass-fed bison, elk, and beef. I went to fry it, and it did not smell the same as bison or beef liver. And while I'm sure that's just how elk liver smells, I started worrying about chronic wasting disease(CWD), which Joe Rogan brought up on the March 2020 episode with the infectious disease epidemiologist, Michael Osterholm. (The episode that in my mind started off the covid pandemic.) I ended up throwing away the elk meat, and then looked into chronic wasting disease more. So far, no known cases have spread to humans as vCJD (variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease), but that was also true of mad cow disease, and I'm sure chronic wasting disease showing up in humans will take longer since way fewer people eat elk or deer. I am in one of the areas of North America where chronic wasting disease is present, and since I bought the meat from a farm, the elk is apparently tested (they send away the heads to get tested), however it says this doesn't guarantee they're free of CWD. Now I think I should just stick to beef/bison, since the downside of Jakob Creutzfeldt disease is so terrible, but I was also thinking if I do this I shouldn't even buy bison or beef from the same farm, since prions are notoriously hard to destroy, and would stick around on the butchering equipment. Do you have any knowledge or insight on this topic? Am I overreacting? Thanks and keep up the great work with the show. 2. Digestion Woes [23:40] Kelly says: Hi Robb and Nicki, hoping you can help me with everyone's favorite topic, poo! I'll cut to the chase. My BMs are a 6-7 on the Bristol stool chart, every day. Usually 3 times per day, and all before 9 am. This has been going on for a few months now. I don't have any stomach pain or bloating, just really liquid poo. My diet is good, I eat mostly red meat, eggs, fruit, white rice, and I don't exclude dairy or gluten because I've never had any sensitivity to it, but maybe that's a good place to start? I do drink alcohol a couple times per week, but haven't noticed a difference when I remove alcohol. I am also a coffee drinker, but I hope that's not the culprit! Just looking for your thoughts on the best place to start, anything I should ask my doctor to run test-wise? I had an IgG test done a couple years ago and that didn't show anything to avoid except things like chia seeds and some random things like that. Thank you both for all you do, me and my hubs listen every week and appreciate your common sense approach to health and recent policy topics. Robb and Nicki for President! 3. Organic? [29:08] Mark says: Hi Robb & Nicki, I've read Wired & Eat & Sacred Cow & drink LMNT (love, chocolate salt in goat milk is a favorite). I've been reading some of the comments from the FarmBabe basically that she now goes out-of-the-way "not" to buy/eat food labeled Organic (she seems not to like StoneyField or at least would like them to stop spreading misinformation) .  I've also read some of her battles with "Bobby" aka FlavCity.  It's hard to sort out if what she's saying is true or if as a non-organic farmer she's biased in any way.  Any insight would be helpful, especially considering current food prices.  I seem to always want to buy Organic, am I wasting my money?

My question… liver seems to be one of the best foods for us. Nutritional density, vitamins, minerals, etc. A ‘superfood'? Anyhoo, I've been wondering why, if the above is true, liver tastes so fucking awful to so many people??

LASIK [17:19] Mark says: Hi Robb and Nikki, On last week's episode Robb mentioned getting LASIK. I don't think I've heard this mentioned on the podcast before. I'm short-sighted (-4.00), and have long been considering LASIK. But, something about it just makes me feel squeamish. Robb, how much research into the procedure did you have to do before getting comfortable with it? Are there any major thoughts/findings from your research worth sharing? And, you being someone who's active and does BJJ, did you consider LASEK (ek) over LASIK (ik), which I've read is often preferred by military personnel/police/boxers/the like (anything high impact). From an article in The Times (UK): "Unlike the most common form of laser eye surgery, Lasik, the operation used on military personnel, Lasek, does not involve slicing a flap in the cornea because there is a slim chance that a hard blow could dislodge the flap. Boxers, police officers and those with a very active lifestyle are also advised to opt for Lasek." How was your recovery – being able to get back into physical activity? Any and all thoughts that might help me overcome my squeamishness would be much appreciated! Mark 2. Returning to fitness after cancer [29:48] Greg says: Hey Robb and Nikki, I have a friend who has just finished an extensive round of chemo treatments. He wants to know what would be the best way to pursue getting back in shape and getting his health in order post-chemo. Are there any specific things he should focus on in terms of diet and exercise? Thanks for everything you do. 3. Essential Tremors [32:25] Sandy says: I have heard you mention several times on Podcasts that you are finding some relief from your essential tremors with lions mane. I would love to do my own experiment to see if this would help me. What form of lions mane would you suggest? What dosage would you shoot for? How long did it take until you saw some relief? All of the drugs I have tried for my tremors gave me side effects that were worse than the tremors themselves. So I had given up. This is the first time in a long time I have felt hopeful.

Kratom [16:30] Anthony says: Hello Rob, I've heard a few of the guys at jiu jitsu talking about Kratom. The reviews online are all over the place, what are your thoughts on Kratom? Thank you 2. "Clean Meat" [25:30] Emily says: Hi! I'm actually brand new to listening to your podcast. A friend who runs a regenerative farm in Virginia (Franchesca's Dawn Farm) wrote about your podcast in a recent newsletter and I had to check it out. I recently read a book called "Clean Meat" about lab created meat (from stem cells) and how this industry (as of the 2016 publishing) is getting ready to boom. I've recently also seen notice of China perfecting a lab meatball that will hit the market shelves by the end of 2022, and FDA approval in 2023 for the US market. While I won't claim to know much, my concern lies with the individuals investing in this research and products that are also buying farm land. Some of these same individuals are also involved in vaccination research and implementation. Their agenda and intentions are concerning at the least. That aside, where can we go to find research on how this lab grown meat actually impacts the body? There's obviously no blood flow in the bath that this is grown in, and my guess is that many of the nutrients are synthetic. The questions that keep rolling around are the impacts on our own cellular growth and reproduction, as well as how our bodies metabolize this stuff. Secondly, the researchers have admitted that they are able to create structures that don't even exist naturally, of course. Any rate, I can't be the only person thinking about this. Would love direction and ideas to learn more. With Gratitude, Emily 3. Vaccine Trust and Supplements [37:52] Hans says: Just finished a recent Cleared Hot podcast in which you were a guest and two questions come to mind 1.) With a lot of concerns and speculation around the Covid vaccine, do you think the publics general "trust" of the vaccine had been more well received had it been offered for free or at cost to governments? Adding the disclaimer that yes, Covid 'could' be bad, but as serious as the problem has been made out to be, we are offering the vaccine not to make money, but to ensure the health and safety of the population. 2.) As an athlete I've experimented with almost every supplement on the market. And after years of experimenting—protein, creatine and salts (LMNT) have become really the only 3 supplements I use regularly. Fish oils, vitamins, brain boosters, etc—I don't really feel it notice a difference. Outside of any real lacking deficiencies, are supplements as a whole really 'that' necessary? Or just really good marketing? Hope these questions find you well.   Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

Yes, worse than monocropping, worse than round up and synthetic fertilizer, pastured meat is, in Monbiot's eyes, the worst. We also looked at a recent Mathew Crawford piece that considers director and Hollywood bigwig, James Cameron's efforts to run organic farms in New Zealand.

Gut microbiome & antibiotics [36:36] Alex says Hi Robb! I've heard you talk about the importance of a healthy gut microbiome and the impact it has on other areas of the body (mental health, etc). I wanted to get your opinion on potential solutions for promoting a healthy gut microbiome in less than ideal circumstances. I have ulcerative colitis and I've had my colon removed as well as some of my small intestine, I have been on antibiotics and steroids daily for about 1.5 years to deal with ongoing inflammation issues. I assume that the antibiotics wipe out any good gut bacteria I have on a daily basis, and I struggle to get any answers from my medical team on what I can do to maintain any sort of good gut bacteria. I've tried probiotics, but assume they're counteracted by the antibiotics. Any suggestions or resources you think may help? Thanks for all you do! Alex Prescribing an antibiotic? Pair it with probiotics Saccharomyces boulardii to Prevent Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea: A Randomized, Double-Masked, Placebo-Controlled Trial 2. Queasy running [48:12] Eric says: Hi Robb - my wife and I are huge fans and she suggested I write to see if you had any thoughts on this. I've been an athlete my entire life and always a runner. Lately I've experienced nausea about a mile into my runs. I'm not running hard, in fact it's really just as I'm getting warmed up. I'm breathing harder, but not like race-hard - if that makes sense. We are huge LMNT fans and I consistently consume at least 6000mg of sodium daily. Particularly in the summer heat. I don't experience this any other time other than when I start to run. If I stop for a few min, the feeling generally passes and I can go on with my run. I've looked at what I'm eating prior to my runs and (1) nothing has really changed, even though this feeling is relatively recent and (2) I don't see anything that I think would make me nauseous. I'm a pretty consistent and clean eater. Could this be an electrolyte issue?? For reference: I'm 5'9” 165lbs, lean/muscular. We eat low carb (my wife follows Dr Bernstein) so I eat similarly but include dairy & berries Would greatly appreciate any thoughts you might have on what could be causing this.

They saw 300% increase in cancer patients over the past year. From around 36,000 new cancer patients to over 120,000 in America   Podcast Questions:   1. Ground meat causing relationship ending gas [21:00] Ryan C. says: Hey Guys, So this is my first question I've ever submitted (going to be doozy) over the years I've listened to this podcast (back through Andy and Greg). I first wanted to say, this podcast and Robb are hugely responsible for me quitting my 9-5 and pursuing my dream career in health and fitness. So thank you endlessly. Now the question regarding my “relationship ending gas”. It hasn't quite ended the relationship yet, but I'm on thin ice if I don't fix it or, maybe even worse, have to stop eating ground meat. Over the past year when I eat ground meat, I've tried beef, bison, turkey, etc. I become extremely gassy, next level, biochemical warfare, shut down a small mall type of next level. It also sometimes happens with just a fatty cut of beef. Now I assumed it was the super fatty stuff, so I cut back, but they still to be on par with each other. Which is basically the tiger woods of farts and sometimes Diarrhea. (This may be your worst question.) Anyway, when I search the internet for “why?”, the good ol' google machine says shit like “stop eating meat you murderer, you'll get ass cancer” or articles on how eating meat is the next AIDS, will destroy the earth, is transphobic, etc. It's crazy and there is no real info I can find. So that is why I'm punishing you guys with this question, I really tried not to. I promise. What do you think this is? A meat allergy, bacterial thing… ass cancer? Help! Help my relationship…   2. Kidney Stones [28:09] Jared says: I'm 42 and relatively healthy, 6'1", 165lbs. I recently had a kidney stone where intense pain started, I went to the ER, and passed the stone all on the same day. My mom has had kidney stones before, but not as young as me. I was drinking 1 LMNT daily but not really doing any physical activity. I just like my water to taste like something. I did find some studies that too much sodium can be associated with kidney stones in some people, but that sounds like a very confounded observation to me. Do you think there is any association? Drinking too much LMNT in absence of physical activity has been associated with sporadic stomach aches for me in the past, so I had recently cut back over the past few months preceding this incident. Also, the doctor said that it could be from not drinking water frequently enough, which I am probably guilty of. The LMNT seems to help reduce the volume of water I drink because it quenches my thirst more than plain water, so maybe it is indirectly related? Anyway, would be happy to hear any thoughts you have.

Your books and podcast have been such a blessing to my health journey. Thank you. I have a question regarding fruit and sugar. I eat clean (no processed carbs / sugar / avoid seed oils) and mainly follow the Paleo path with the exception  of pastured butter / cheese. I also practice daily intermittent fasting with a six hour eating window. I have cut out all added sugar (sweets, soda, etc) but typically have a bowl of organic blueberries, mixed fruit (pineapple, strawberries, etc) with chia seed pudding made with coconut milk after my lunch and dinner. Does the natural sugar in these fruits have a negative effect with regards to inflation and heart disease? Thanks so much for all you do. Justin 2. Jiu Jitsu and Nutrition [19:16] Strawberry (Yes my name is Strawberry) says: Overly exhausted the day after Jiu Jitsu grappling. I know you are a purple belt (which kudos!!) so I'm sure you have some real experience and great suggestions. I believe being this tired, I am not doing something right. In a nut shell I avoid bread and flour (unless my daughter makes cookies) I have a spoon of honey with my matcha or smoothie I avoid big meals first thing in the morning, I break my fast about 10-1030am, I'll have a handful of nuts, a smoothie with collagen (add fruit seldom). I have 2 cups of coffee a day My meals consist of veggies, proteins, and fat.  If there is a carb, its more at dinner time. I get out side as much as possible (an hour or more a day) (With diet, I'm no saint, so I know it's not perfect like above, but that is about 80% of the time) I read before bed (books not screens!) The days I know I'm going to go train, I do eat breakfast and try to fit in some extra food. Training is at night, we're done rolling by 8pm. I'M FREAKING TIRED!   My goal is to be energized and go to class 3 times a week. When I'm tired, I am grumpy, and my husband or kids don't deserve that !! They like an energized happy mama ^_^ Any suggestions? (-Follow up email after asking her some basic questions-) Welp… I don't count calories or carbs. (Maybe that's my problem) I'll have complex carbs at night and especially after training (potato's, pasta, homemade bread). I'll add 1/2 banana or a handful of frozen strawberries to a smoothie during the day. I'll sneak in extra carbs sometimes but not often.    Lunch, will typically be salad/veggie with protein and high fat. (Nuts, with olive oil on salad, etc) I got a free sample of LMNT from Roll Model camp and I'm going to purchase more cause it does help. Last night I had a pack right after class and I feel good today! I worship my sleep. My family picks on me because I think 930pm is late. But on nights I'm training I may not get to sleep til midnight from cooling off! Sadly my gym doesn't have morning classes. The high intensity seems like my body needs to chill out for quite sometime. We got our sauna running (last 2 weeks) and after training I go in there and it helps but not always. I avoid screens cause it does fuck up my sleep but my husband,( his love language is watching shows together) so I'll watch a show with him from time to time after class or weekends. With the summer, the kids home and husband, I'm trying to not always be a “stick in a mud” if you know what I mean?

Dutch Farmer Protest [9:19] Hi Robb and Nicki - First I'm sure you're wondering why I send you guys so much periodic email and don't just join THR. It's nothing against you guys (you're pretty dang awesome), I've been a member in the past and it was lovely, but I find it's too easy to let myself get sucked into the online communities and spend too much time with my phone in front of me. So I join for an occasional challenge or reset and then give a good Irish goodbye for a while. Anyway, something that came across my brain this week that made me furrow my brow. Have you heard about what is going on in the Netherlands? While I've heard gobs about reducing carbon emissions, this is the first I've heard anything about reducing nitrogen emissions and the Dutch government seem keen to force plenty of people to give up their livelihoods and food security to do it: this is the article I saw https://www.politico.eu/article/police-fire-dutch-farmer-protest-nitrogen-emission-cut/ (I found myself immediately cheering on the farmers but am trying to get some more info and perspective). Is nitrogen emission that big of a problem? Or is this just the next thing down the pike from carbon blinders? What gives?  Would love your thoughts. Thanks for the fiesty banter and witty analysis that I love you guys for. Keep on. Cheers, Christin ------------ “The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business,” the government admitted in a statement last month. https://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory/explainer-dutch-farmers-protesting-emissions-85848026 The ruling coalition wants to cut emissions of pollutants, predominantly nitrogen oxide and ammonia, by 50% nationwide by 2030. Ministers call the proposal an “unavoidable transition” that aims to improve air, land and water quality. They warn that farmers will have to adapt or face the prospect of shuttering their businesses. “The honest message ... is that not all farmers can continue their business,” and those who do will likely have to farm differently, the government said in a statement this month as it unveiled emission reduction targets. Livestock produce ammonia in their urine and feces. The government in the past has called on farmers to use feed for their animals that contains less protein as a way of reducing ammonia emissions. The problem is compounded in the Netherlands, which is known for its intensive farming practices, with large numbers of livestock kept on small areas of land.

Glucometer testing ... Puzzling results [15:08] Chris says: Hi Robb, Loved the audiobook thanks. I'm reaching out because I was inspired by your book and started experimenting with a glucometer and wanted to see how different carbs affect my blood sugar. I made some delicious whole wheat bread for the first time in my life and decided that was a perfect way to start my testing journey. However, the strange part is my blood sugar was actually lower 2 hours (3.7 mmol/L) after eating the bread and then began creeping back up after. This is the opposite of what I expected. According to Google, what's happening might be reactive hypoglycemia but I just wanted to know what you thought about this. According to the chapter in your book, it should be good news that my blood sugar is on the lower side after eating whole wheat bread. But something makes me feel like this isn't right. Would love to know your thoughts. Thanks so much!. Chris (Followup response after I replied to his email): I checked at increased intervals and my blood sugar actually peaked at 35 minutes and then was lower after an hour and by 2 hours I was back to my fasting level. I'm guessing the time doesn't matter as much as how high the peak was? Because it reached borderline pre diabetic levels after 35 minutes (138 mg/dl). But since I was back to normal after 2 hours like the book says, does this mean my body reacted favourably? 2. Face rashes when consuming red meat [24:16] John says: Hi Robb. Big fan here. Love your work, so glad you exist in this world. I can not figure our why red meat is giving me rashes on my face/eyes (nowhere else). I'll cut to it. The 2 times I have eaten strict carnivore (90% red meat, high quality) I get itchy burning rashes on my face primarily around my eyes about 3 weeks in. The skin gets very red and inflamed but no oozing, cracking, or bumps and is very sensitive to heat. No major effect on my eyes or vision other than some UV sensitivity on bright days. So far I have tried steroid creams, tea tree oil, ketoconazole cream and shampoo, apple cider vinegar, and ice packs; even had an optometrist diagnose blepharitis and give me an antibiotic gel (no effect). The ketoconazole shampoo (used on my face) was the only somewhat effective treatment... Ultimately, if I cut my red meat back to only 2-4 servings per week this almost completely goes way on its own. Even now, after being off carnivore for 6 weeks, if I have a steak for dinner my eye orbits will be a bit warm and puffy the next day (bison also triggers). I continue to apply the keto shampoo once a week. I am 41, 6'1" 190lbs. Weights and cardio. Sleep is pretty good. Mostly paleo but not many vegetables. Recent comprehensive bloods done, all good. No super crazy stress or anything obvious to point to. In addition, I feel fantastic on the carnivore diet minus the rash. Also, I never had any noticeable reaction to red meat until the first time I did carnivore a few years ago. I contacted Dr. Baker about this on IG a while back and he thought it might be a keto rash but I've never had this rash when eating keto/high-fat for several months at a time. Do you have any ideas? Thank you so much for your time!!! 3. Omega 6 [31:26] Marit says: Hey guy! Love the podcast. Been listening for 8+ years. I'm an RD and thought i had this topic pretty squared away, until I came across this article: https://www.health.harvard.edu/newsletter_article/no-need-to-avoid-healthy-omega-6-fats Can you explain these findings or the studies they are sourcing?

Very low CGM numbers with keto diet [7:47] Krista says: Hi Robb & Nikki! Love all the work you guys are doing!! LOVE Scared Cow!!! I'm a 44 year-old women who started a keto diet in November to combate 15lbs of hormonal weight gain (a really stressful 5 years threw everything off despite eating very clean, working out, prioritizing sleep, etc). I lost about 8lbs right out the gates and a few lbs are still coming off very slowly. At the start of my keto journey I also discovered I have a histamine intolerance (long Covid???) and have modified my diet and done all the things to limit my histamines. My histamines have slowly but surely decreased but still not totally in the clear. With all that being said, I've been using a CGM to look at how my body interperts food for a while now (even before my keto diet) and my sugars have always been low (average around 90) but the numbers did increase with my histamines but now that my histamines are more under control my numbers are back to normal....super steady and never going above 110 unless during workouts. Finally my question....in the last 4 days my cgm numbers have gone super low!!! I'm averaging 65. I still feel completely normal (this is not a new cgm) and am sleeping normal despite it going into the 40's. Nothing has changed in my life or diet My daily macros....1800ish calories 100ish grams of protein, 40ish grams of carbs and the rest fat. I weigh about 135 and all my hormone levels are back to normal (I work with a NaturoPath). My only thought is as my histamines continue to decrease is this my new normal in ketosis or ????? THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! 2. Kids and food [14:33] Sydney says: I'd love to hear your approach to feeding your children at home and outside of the home (with grandparents, vacations, birthday parties, etc.). And how has that changed as they've grown? We've been able to just stick with our preferred food for the most part since they've been so little, but we are encountering more and more occasions where there are things offered that we wouldn't usually let them eat in a million years! And we say no…but it doesn't always sit quite right! Thoughts? Not so much worried about offending others…more so thinning about the ideas and beliefs we are instilling in them around nutrition. 3. Coffee Enemas [24:38] Doug says Robb: I've been a huge fan of yours for years. Thank you for all your content and all you do. I especially appreciate your integrity and truthfulness on all subjects. I have a family member who is trying to cure eczema with an elimination diet. What remains is mostly meat, fish, a limited selection of fruit along with a little bit of white rice. This person is lean, strong and very healthy, but has recently suffered painful outbreaks of eczema. The “guru“ we are following and doing this elimination diet recommends coffee enemas. Unfortunately, despite The enthusiasm of this guru, and many others on the inter-webzs, there is a surprising paucity of information on them out there. The closest thing to a theoretical explanation is that a vein in the colon leads right the liver and the caffeine/coffee stimulates the liver to pump out Lots of bile, with which aids in cleansing and flushing. I know, I know, cleansing and flushing and detoxes are mostly bullshit. But anecdotally, people seem to really love these coffee enemas. What's the truth?

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here News topic du jour: Climate-Change Censorship: Phase Two Podcast Questions: 1. Protein For Kids [21:30] Andrea says: Hello Robb and Nicki, love the podcast and really appreciate the time and effort you guys put into your work for my benefit. My question is, how much protein is appropriate for children at different ages? I ask this because I understand that as an adult I need 1 gram of protein per pound of lean mass, but when I look at the googles for info on kids protein, it says half a gram per pound. This surprised me as I just assumed they would need more because they are growing. The sources I looked at were not where I normally go for my health advice so I am unsure if they are being influenced by the vegan agenda or if I am really feeding my kids too much protein. Any clarification you have would be great. 2. My Mattress Coil Is Transmitting Radio Waves Into My Brain [26:29] Craig says: Hello Robb and Nicki Long time listener from back in the day with Matt, I stuck around like a leach as I had nowhere else to go... One of my wife's health "fill in the blank" people stated that coils in box springs can cause cancer as they magnify the radio waves coming from the outside world, or Mars.  You remember the movie Mars Attacks, it can happen. My background in electronics states that the opposite will happen, it will dampen the waves like a Faraday Cage. So what gives?  Here's the link:  https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/left-sided-cancer-blame-your-bed-and-tv/ Thanks guys!!! (Niki, we can actually hear you now, most of of the time)  Yea!!!! 3. Bioenergetic View of Health [33:58] Tim says: Hey Robb, first just want to mention, I've been a huge fan for years. I've read Wired to Eat and Sacred Cow, have listened to many of your podcasts, and I just love you as a human even though we've never met. I could tell you have a really big heart and you genuinely want to help the world to the best of your ability. To my question: I'm curious about your thoughts on Ray Peat's bioenergetic view of health. Maybe some context for listeners, the bioenergetic view, at a high level, is about increasing energy at the cellular level and decreasing stress, which in turn, would increase your metabolism. Increasing energy/metabolism gives the body more resources to perform all the necessary functions the body needs to perform (i.e. digestion, healing, fighting illness, etc.). To do this, one of the main things he recommends is to eat sugar since that is the most preferred form of fuel that our cells use to convert into energy. The sugars that are generally recommended are simple sugars, like sucrose, which is found in fruit, fruit juice, honey, and white sugar. He recommends these sugars because they are easily absorbable, digestible, and converted into energy. He believes low blood sugar increases stress hormones (like glucagon, adrenalin, and cortisol), increases free fatty acids, and increases tissue breakdown and fat release to provide fuel for the body. This leads to low energy/metabolism/thyroid function and ultimately puts us in a chronically stressed state. He also argues that the problem is not sugar, but everything else that we consume alongside the sugar in our modern diets, particularly PUFAs being the most destructive to our bodies.   Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

I like eating 2 meals a day but after listening to book I'm trying to increase my protein to 180 to 200 grams a day. I'm 6'1 210 lbs. Is it beneficial to eat 90 grams in each meal or is that two much for my body to process correctly for optimal absorption? Should I spread it out? Thanks 2. Putative blood flow issues [15:40] Charles says: Hi Robb and Nicki, long-time listener here. I have been following Robb since I was 18, almost ten years ago! Thank you for your work. Background: 6 feet tall, male, 142 lbs, 28 years old. Lenient paleo diet for almost 10 years supplemented with 0.5-1 packet LMNT daily depending on weather/exercise load, generally great sleep hygiene, devote a lot of effort to getting in the sun every day, weights 2x/week, 45 min bike ride at least 2x/week. Recent blood work came back excellent (just the standard LDL, HDL, Hem A1C, Vit D, thyroid stimulating hormone, hepatic enzymes). I do seem to have issues with circulation though, which I think may be related to the problem I describe below. My extremities go numb easily, and when it's cold I have a few finger tips that lose color/sensitivity for extended periods of time after the others have returned to normal temperature. The problem: My erections have decreased in strength noticeably in the past two years. The problem usually isn't so severe that it prevents sex (though a few times it has), but it certainly decreases its quality for both parties involved on a regular basis. Potentially relevant circumstances surrounding the problem: A little over two years ago (when the problem began) I ended a bad relationship, started a new **amazing** one, moved twice, had a very bad car accident, had a very bad cycling accident, lost my grandmother, helped my mother through a traumatic incident, etc. I'd like to point out that this was Winter-Summer 2020, need I say more? It was a whirlwind of a year. I dealt with it in healthy ways (amping up the exercise and protein consumption) and unhealthy ways (picking up a 1-2 drinks before dinner habit that I've since decreased to just on weekends; this decrease happened 6 months ago). Should I talk to a therapist instead of sending this in to a podcast? Probably, but why not both? I'm hoping you and Nicki might be able to connect some dots I haven't. 3. Functional Dyspepsia [21:36] Cristi says: I love your show and the dynamics between the two of you. I'd love to join "the rebellion" when I can afford it. What do we know in natural health about "functional dyspepsia?" I just had an upper endoscopy to diagnose the cause of a burning sensation in my stomach just under my right ribcage usually right after eating/while eating that seems to respond to an amount of food rather than any particular food. Before this, the gastro had me do a stool test that was negative for H. Pylori. They took biopsies during the upper endo, but the doctor says he doesn't expect to find anything. He said he saw irritation in the stomach lining and it was probably caused by "functional dyspepsia" which was an imbalance of acid in the stomach. He said the causes of this could be different things, including stress (which I admittedly have a lot of, but I do what I can to control it) and that otherwise, causes were unknown, but that I could just take Pepsid! How long? Oh, maybe forever...Needless to say, I'm not doing that. SO, if all I know is that the acid is "imbalanced," how do I balance it? At the risk of making this too much longer, my diet, exercise, and supplement regimen are all along the lines of what paleo-centric gurus recommend, so none of the other causes of this "disfunction" (NSAID use, fried/unhealthy fat foods, alcohol excess) make sense. I'm not celiac, but I don't eat gluten and dairy because they just don't feel great. I'm thinking of continuing to take probiotics and add a functional medicine supplement with aloe, licorice root, marshmallow root, NAD etc. to maybe calm the irritation? My only other thought is that maybe I've been taking too much of a natural allergy supplement that has quercitin (400 mg per two pills) -3 pills twice a day-but I doubt that's it, and after stopping it for five days before this procedure as they required, I really noticed my allergies kicking in. The problem is, I'm 5'5, 118-120, and closer to 118 with what I'm able to eat without feeling discomfort. I have to stop before I'm satisfied completely. I wake up at night hungry, and I can't go back to sleep, and I know 118 is too light for me. I weight train 3X per week, and I'm active all of the other days. I'm a highschool teacher, so I'm not really sedentary, either. I'm pretty low carb with starchy carbs (about a cup of sweet potato or rice) only included at dinner.

Is Sweating More Better or Not? [8:41] BJ says: Robb/Nicki, Long time listener and sharer of all things Robb Wolf.  Your books and podcasts are the easiest to read and listen to.  I appreciate that, being a guy whose biggest hobby is learning/understanding health, but who barely survived Biology 101.  Also, thank you for being open to new ideas and evolving over your career.  It's reassuring to know that you and Nicki are willing to change your stance on an issue regarding a particular food, diet, politics, whatever.  When I read Wired To Eat and was introduced to the term "hyper palatable", a lot of pieces of the puzzle fell into place for me. I'm a 47 year old male, 5'8", 165lbs.  I've eaten all the diets over the years...that include meat.  Never considered vegetarian or vegan.  Been as heavy as 210+.  Pretty good health markers today.  Admittedly, I still pray that one day you'll promote an all pizza and french fry way of eating. Okay, so I've always liked getting in the sauna (not steam room) at the gym.  I believe it provides similar benefits to cold therapy, but cold therapy is...so cold!! I've envied other who guys who would walk in and start sweating immediately (like within a few minutes).  It has always taken me about 10-15 minutes to bead up and start sweating.  I figured it had a little to do with how often they get in, versus me doing it a couple times per week at most. I recently had a sauna built in my home.  I've been getting in it regularly for just a month, and have noticed a significant increase in how quickly I begin to sweat.  Yes, I think I've got my room a bit hotter than at the gym, but not much.  I'm really enjoying it and it feels great but it's got me thinking.  Is sweating "easier" really a positive effect?  Or, am I just convincing myself of this like how people try to believe that eating 6 meals a day is how we're supposed to eat to rev up our metabolism?  That idea (so many daily meals) has never made sense to me...why not leave my car running overnight or while I'm at work so it's good and warmed up when I'm ready to drive again...just doesn't make sense. It's not causing me to sweat all day in normal circumstances.  I don't feel warmer or uncomfortable through the day.  In the mornings, I don't want to take a super hot shower like I always have, but that doesn't seem like a big deal. So, to sweat more or not to sweat more?  Whatcha think? Hoping I didn't leave too much for you to...unpack...before being able to share your thoughts.  Ha!  Best wishes to you and your family. Sincerely, BJ David 2. Celiac or not: is it worth testing to know for sure? [14:03] Becky says: I've been 100% gluten-free for the last year - ever since my DNA consult with Dr. Anthony Jay where I believe his exact words were "avoid gluten like the plague". Prior to that, I was occasionally having gluten when out (never at home) but have been eating a paleo-style diet for the last 5+ years. I've done a little research on the test for celiac which requires you to eat gluten in order to measure the antibodies in the blood. It sounds terrible to make myself sick eating gluten (even as much as I miss some good French bread) in order to confirm or deny whether or not I have celiac disease. However, I am wondering if it is worth it to be tested to confirm if I have it. Besides avoiding gluten, is there anything else I should be aware of or alter in my lifestyle if I confirmed that I have celiac disease? Thank you! 3. Sugar Effects Occurring Generations Later Theory [22:39] John says: Robb, I thought of something yesterday.  If I'm reading the theory correctly, the obesity effects of sugar could take a couple of generations to manifest (i.e. each subsequent generation is affected worse as seen in increasing obesity rates). If that's so, why did the nutritional transition (~10,000 years ago) manifest instantly in height, bones, teeth, disease, etc and then the human race slowly adapted (hemochromatosis, lactose tolerance, amylase increase, etc)? It seems that the sugar generational effects theory is going in reverse of the human adaptation seen in the great nutritional transition.

Fish oil being a PUFA, inflammatory, added to fish oil doesn't make sense to us other than being a carrier oil or to fill a bottle.

My name is Cassandra and I am a 57-year-old woman with lymphocytic colitis, gastritis and intestinal metaplasia. I've been a carnivore for about two years, mostly consuming fatty ribeye with beef tallow . Regardless, my symptoms have flared up considerably. I am also a Personal Trainer of 25 years and work about 60 hours a week. I walk about 15,000 steps a day and lift weights daily for 90 ish minutes. I had done so earlier that day. I have a clear light infrared sauna and I have just gotten up to 150° this past week. Prior to that I've been getting out at 135° -144°. I always use LMNT prior to the sauna, and continue to drink it after the sauna. I only use a quarter to half of the packet as it's too salty otherwise.I use about 10 to 16 ounces of water for half a packet. Yesterday evening I spent about 30 minutes in the hot sauna, and then drank the electrolyte drink afterwards. Because it was late at night I did not notice that I poured the whole packet in before adding water. So as I was drinking the LMNT and the water, it tasted mild as usual but when I got to the bottom a bolus of LMNT swept into my mouth and I swallowed before I could stop it. I didn't think anything of it and went to bed, but a few hours later I was vomiting and severe diarrhea that lasted throughout the night and into this afternoon the next day. I've been tired and weak and unable to work. Did I cause hypernatremia? Thank you for your input.

Credibility without Higher Education [10:57] Ashlyn says: Hi Guys, For the past year I have done a complete 180° as far as diet, exercise, and the way I view the world. I would love to become a dietitian and study the links between diet and autoimmunity (I have MS) but the financial factor of university is too extreme. I want to spread the news of what I believe to friends and family, but how do I gain credibility? I don't want to say “it's true because I watched a YouTube video.” Do you have any advice on how I can find/study credible information and start diving deeper into the world of dietetics? 2. Iron Overload [27:14] Sarah says: Hi Robb and Nicki, Let me start by saying that I truly love your podcast and never get tired of listening to you two! Whether I am in the mood for nutrition science, current news, or just a good conversation, your podcast always ticks all the boxes. I can't think of another podcast where I can get as much information while simultaneously getting a good giggle. So thank you. My question is in regards to iron overload, sometimes referred to as iron dysfunction. Have you heard or read the work of Morley M. Robbins? It is based on the premise that so called iron deficiency anemia is in fact not a deficiency at all, but in fact iron dysfunction which results in an overload of iron in the tissue, subsequently causing all the problems that are often diagnosed as anemia. One of the important points he makes is that we suffer from iron dysfunction because of a lack of bio-available copper, as well as a lack of retinol. I have myself had lower blood iron levels for quite some time, even after incorporating grassfed beef and organs into my diet on a regular basis. I have been eating a (now dairy-inclusive) paleo diet for many years, and recently switched to a more animal-based type diet, and saw massive improvements in energy, but still not optimal, particularly on the first week of my cycle. It would be really cool if you guys did a full episode on iron, iron absorption and the likes, or perhaps you have already done one and I have missed it? If you could comment on the work of Morley Robbins, that would be extremely helpful. Thanks so much, Sarah   Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

Comment on air travel and risk of infection for your reference. [12:23] Marti says: Hi Robb, Just listened to the latest podcast, great stuff that you and Nikki are doing! You had mentioned that there should have been a study done regarding air travel and I believe the main reason there wasn't one done is because from previous tuberculosis studies they already knew the possibility of transmission was very low on airplanes. I can't seem to find the study I wanted to share, but here is a link to get you started on the research if you are so inclined: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20185096/. There is also this: https://www.cdc.gov/tb/topic/populations/travelers/default.htm. If you aren't familiar with TB, it is highly contagious, and the leading infectious disease killer in the world. So, for them to not be concerned about TB patients on airplanes, but concerned about covid, well.......... You see where I am going with this, and as you know the masks are useless. Again, great podcast, cheers! Marti R   2. Kidney stones [14:43] Brian says: Hi Robb and Nicki - I recently had a stone (ow!!) and my tests came back showing high uric acid. My doctor recommended that I cut back dramatically on my (admittedly) high meat consumption and other paleo-friendly foods. Any suggestions for lowering uric acid levels while maintaining current food consumption? I consume minimal alcohol and sugary foods and intermittent fast. Thank you!!   3. Diet and or supplements for sun allergy (photosensitivity) AKA Polymorphous Light Eruption (PMLE)? [18:41] Joe says: Hi Robb and Nicki, Thanks for all of your great content! Do you know of any supplements, food options, or other treatments to help with a sun allergy, also known as photosensitivity and Polymorphous Light Eruption (PMLE)? This article describes the condition pretty well, based on my experience: https://www.health.harvard.edu/a_to_z/sun-allergy-photosensitivity-a-to-z I'm pretty sure I'm now on my third year of PMLE. Last year when it started, I spoke to my doctor on the phone (due to no face-to-face appointments during covid) and sent her a photo and she said it was probably photosensitivity. I was prescribed an antihistamine called fexofenadine (180 mg) which I'm not sure helped either way. I was also referred to a dermatologist but by the time the appointment came through, some months later, it had already cleared up, so I canceled the appointment as there was nothing to see. The red, sore, itchy rash only appears on my face (so far). We've just had our first good week of sun here in the UK and after some time at the beach, I now have it on my face. Last year it went away after about a month and then didn't really come back for the rest of the summer. I had to stay out of the sun a lot for that first month though, which was a pain. I see beta carotene is recommended on some sites as a treatment or preventative but in doses of 180 mg a day. I've seen it on sale at 15 mg doses. Would 180 mg a day be safe (or turn me orange)? From what I've read, photosensitivity or PMLE is potentially a histamine issue. Are there diet changes that could help? I also get hayfever and eczema, which I think are in the same family.

Anthony J Leonardi and Covid/Vaccine Immune Depletion and Reinfection [19:00] Kristi says: Hi Robb and Nicki, Very long time listener. Thank you so much for your show and for dipping into different topics, I love it. My question is, do you know anything about Anthony J Leonardi? He has apparently done a lot of work on and talked about some sort of immune depletion that is caused by both covid and the covid vaccines: called T-cell exhaustion. Something similar to AIDS as far as I currently understand. He has also talked about the "fraud" of the Great Barrington Declaration, I guess because of people getting severe covid reinfections. Although I have a bit of scientific background, the papers linked to me are beyond my knowledge, and the fraud claim is a bit baffling to me. I'm wondering if you have looked into this at all or know anything about either the T-cell exhaustion or the reinfections. https://www.drugtargetreview.com/news/81320/t-cell-exhaustion-may-limit-long-term-immunity-in-covid-19-patients/ https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/sciimmunol.abe4782 https://twitter.com/fitterhappierAJ/status/1514199036319834124?s=20&t=CjqEIQspcmpJBTV3kCTBsw Thanks, Kristi Herlein   2.

Functional Medicine & Where's the Beef? [17:57] Lisa says: I have a double question for the healthy rebellion!  My teenage daughter really doesn't like much meat (I think it's a texture thing she will eat sloppy joes for some reason like a champ as well as fish we catch in the lake) and I'm having a hard time upping her intake.   Is there a decent protein powder I can have her add to her smoothly bowls she's obsessed with while I keep trying the soups and broths you mentioned to another emailer?  The health of our kids is of great concern to me looking at their food choices at school and now that she's mobile and can go buy her own junk. I'd also like to find a functional medicine provider in MN for us but it's daunting whos for real or who's a fake?  My extreme distrust of the main stream medical community as a result of the Vid and my father dying of a massive heart attach after being told he was Soooo Healthy has made it difficult to trust anyone. Thanks Lisa 2. Weight Loss While On Hyperthyroid Medication [26:26] Douglas says: Hi Robb, I am a 56 yr old male recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. My doctor has placed me on methimazole 2.5 mg and my numbers look great. The problem is that since being on the medication my weight has gone from 215 to 240 and I am 6'2" tall. I have read many articles stating that it is hard if not impossible to lose weight while on Methimazole. My PA states it is not the medication, but my thyroid that is piling on the pounds. Do you have any recommendations on what I can do start losing weight? I loved your cleared hot podcast and I look forward to hearing from you. Have a great day. 3. Trouble sleeping with delaying breakfast or eating low carb [29:55] Flannery says: Hi, I'm curious to hear your thoughts on why I have trouble sleeping if I don't eat first thing in the morning or if I decrease the carbs in my diet. I'm often not hungry in the morning, but if I skip breakfast or move my first meal to more than about an hour from when I wake up (usually between 6:30 -7:30) I will have significant trouble falling/staying asleep that night. The same thing happens when I shift my diet to include more fat and less carbohydrate as my primary fuel source. I'm a fairly competent food tracker, so I believe I am keeping my calories and protein the same as I make these changes. I've also tried (per your inspiration) increasing my salt intake by about 2g sodium/day (above just salting food to taste) when I delay my first meal or decrease carbs, but it has not improved my sleep. I don't have a huge need to delay breakfast or shift my diet, but some days higher fat/lower carb just sounds better and I'd like to be able to be more flexible with my diet without losing sleep. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks, Flannery Background: -I'm a 33 y.o. active woman (I have a pretty physical job as a farmer and work out 3-4x weekly either rock climbing or barbell strength training). -I'm fairly lean with a body comp I'm happy with (5 '8'' and 125lbs). -I don't think I'm under-eating calories or protein. When I track I seem to maintain on about 2000-2500 kcal and I love protein, typically averaging about 110-140g/daily mostly from meat and greek yogurt. Usually my diet breaks down to about 25% protein, 45% carbs, 30% fat. -I've been eating my own version of paleo/W.A.Price-ish for about 10 years (I include rice and dairy, I don't eat nuts and seeds.)

I have a question and hoping you can shine some of your light - which I trust immensely as a healthcare provider. I have been doing more research on dementia prevention and the data is very skewed towards the Mediterranean Diet - which increases whole grains and limits fats and proteins.

Yes, same as with Carnivore Aurelius and Paul Saladino, he's been swayed to add fruits and roots to his carnivore/keto approach. But more recently he started posting about his discoveries about sodium and that we should stop adding sodium to our foods, as it will imbalance the potassium:sodium ratio. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Maybe it's not important on a carb-based diet, but on a low-carb/keto/carnivore diet where insulin is low it is more important? The research he refers to is all from carb-based diets. https://www.ketogenicforums.com/t/thoughts-on-farewell-to-paleo-post/3932 Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

In my quest to play super dad into my 40's I have taken to eating a lot of fermented veggies.  For a ton of reasons including flavor, taste, texture and convenience I like to make my own mixes in glass jars.  Lately I have fallen into a beet and green cabbage mix.  I was wondering if the fermented beet/kraut juice packed the same blood flow benefits through the nitrate mechanism claimed by beet supplements? BTW its as really simple and fun process.  Get a jar.  Shred the cabbage and beets with whatever is handy.  Sprinkle in salt.  Pound the mix into a jar after it sits about 30 minutes.  Let time do its thing.  I like a 3 week sit.  If you want it "kruatier" wait longer!  As it sits as long as the mix is below the brine things should turn out pleasant! I also do a kimche style kraut that is bananas! Looking forward to your response and thanks for all you do!

Got an electrolyte question for you though.  Doctor Rick Johnson was recently on Peter Attia's “The Drive” podcast.  They discussed how fructose drives metabolic disease.  Layered in there he says salt can be a really bad player in this too drive up blood pressure. I know there is nuance here but it's beyond my level. We recommend LMNT and electrolytes to our athletes some of which may have metabolic disease and therefore hypertension. Should we be more careful about recommending this?Would love you perspective. Thanks and keep up the Salty Talk!

I'm 70years old 6 ft tall was 202lbs a month ago down to 186lbs now. Thanks very much!! 2. Balancing Blood Sugar During Pregnancy [23:56] Lindsey says: Hi Robb and Nicki, I've learned so much from both of you! I'm 39, 34 weeks pregnant (3rd child) and having blood sugar issues for the first time. A bit of background before pregnancy #3 (I can't help but think all of this may be relevant!): Just before pregnancy, I was at my highest weight at 190 but beginning to lose weight. I have primarily eaten a paleo diet (meat, veggies, no grains, no dairy, my only sugars were occasionally from honey, dates, maple syrup and a very occasional glass of wine) since 2016 with the exception of a short run of stressful family events happening in late 2018, including moving, when our lifestyle sort of took a backseat and wine and fast food intake went up, which is when I gained all of the weight. When I had trouble losing the weight, I saw a functional medicine doc fall 2019 and she did wonders through lab work and FODMAP to help me figure out my hormones were off- high estrogen, high cortisol- I had food intolerances (grains, dairy, sugar, alcohol, and coffee) and my B vitamins were low from malabsorption. Just as I was able to get things back under control, COVID happened. My family tried to maintain our re-established paleo lifestyle and exercised more (we also wondered why this wasn't being shared all over media?!) even through moving again. So, just as I'm beginning to lose weight in 2021, I find out I'm pregnant (yea!). I have felt the absolute best this pregnancy- working out, eating mostly paleo, but adding in whole wheat toast with avocado or nut butter in the morning after eating a protein to add calories (the bread didn't seem to bother me), drinking LMNT on days I work out, etc. I had COVID in January and a stomach bug at the beginning of February and then realized I was dehydrated (drank more LMNT which helped me so much!). Within a week after that, I needed to take my 1-hour glucose test. I could feel I was bombing it the whole hour- my body didn't know what to do with 50 grams of sugar. My blood glucose was 153 from that blood draw (the marker they use here in San Antonio is 140). My doctor wanted me to take the 3-hour glucose test, but I knew fasting and with even more sugar, I was doomed. I asked if I could skip ahead to glucose monitoring. I'm currently on day 3 (numbers below) and here is what I'm curious about: why/how can I have high fasting numbers but normal numbers through the day. Also, on day 3, what are some possible causes of the lower fasting number- was it the potassium in the LMNT? Just drinking more water? Taking out the bread? Not eating dessert like I did the day before (ha)? Are there any other changes y'all recommend? day 1: fasting: 104; after breakfast: 108; after lunch: 113; after dinner: 112   notes: date night- ate 1/3 of a creme brulee day 2: fasting 103; AB: 101; AL 102; AD 114  notes: tried apple cider vinegar in water (1tbsp:1/2 cup) before bed and today I drank LMNT after not drinking it for about 4 days (didn't sound good/couldn't get it down). Felt great after drinking it! day 3: fasting: 88; AB: 114 Sorry this is incredibly long! Thanks for your help.

Hyper palatable perception of normal whole foods Alex says: Really odd case here: A good friend of mine has struggled with binge eating to the point of burping up food for years.  A few years ago at my urging he got tested for sibo(for a collection of other symptoms) and was..very positive.  Now 3 years on he's way better but still doesn't experience palate fatigue with whole food meals unless he restricts to pure carnivore with no seasoning but salt.  What could be going on here? 2. Tired Vegetarian Amerra says: Robb, I am reaching out to you because I have no idea who I should talk to. I have endometriosis and just about 10 years ago read that going vegetarian would help my symptoms. I eased my way in and became a vegetarian. My symptoms did seem to alleviate and initially I felt great. I continued to be a vegetarian. I had two children (2016 & 2018). I understand that being a mom can be tiring however, I'm completely exhausted. I recently stumbled across someone talking about  the lion and the carnivore diets. They stated many of their health issues went into remission. I started researching fatigue and vegetarianism. There seems to be a connection. The problem is, I've been eating this way for so long that the idea of eating meat seriously grosses me out. This is not a moral issue for me or any other connection-just I've eaten this way so long. What do you recommend? Do you have any resources? Are there any health issues in addition to the obvious fatigue that I should get checked for? I would greatly appreciate anything you can share. I did speak with a doctor about this and was evaluated for sleep apnea. The test came back with negative results. After this my doctor stopped following up. Also, to give further information, I am 36 years old. I have no other known health issues. I exercise frequently (although I have a broken back which prevents the type of intense exercise I used to do and love).

Baby's poor digestion [17:18] Taylor says: Hello, Nikki and Robb! I was hoping you may have some advice other than probiotics, since that seems to be the only advice I get on this topic and they don't seem to help. I have a 9 month old baby with a very sensitive digestive system. We did everything "right" when it came to introducing good bacteria: natural home birth, no antibiotics, EBF until introducing solids. I have to cut dairy while breastfeeding because he has a CMPI. Since introducing solids, he is only able to handle meat, eggs, fish, and avacado. Anything else gives him extremely painful gas and he will be up all night screaming. Should I continue to try to introduce new foods or hold off until a certain period of time to let his gut heal/develop? His current daily food intake will look something like this: egg fried in lard, sausage patty, avacado, fish roe, ground beef, chicken thigh, over cooked white potato, and orange slices on the rind so he just gets the juice and no fiber. Thank you for any advice you may have! 2. Beef Liver [21:02 Chris says: Robb, I like to eat beef liver a couple times per week. In the states, I was able to find grass-fed sources, either locally or through US Wellness Meats. However, I recently moved to Okinawa, Japan with the military and haven't found any local sources for grass-Fed or companies that will ship here. The grocery store carries frozen liver slices from Skylark meats, but they're not grass-fed. For that matter, I can't find any information on how Skylark raises their cattle, so presumably it's a large commercial operation. So, am I better off ordering some grass-fed beef liver capsules from a reputable company or do you think the liver from Skylark is okay, albeit suboptimal? 3. Essential Tremor [26:07] Jenny says: Hello, Robb and Nicki - Thank you for providing truthful and unbiased information on health.  I love your podcast and the Healthy Rebellion group. I am a healthy, 50 year old female.  I feel great but I have Essential Tremor.  I also have Celiac Disease.  Interestingly, I only know one other person with Celiac Disease, and he also has Essential Tremor.  Most of the time, my tremor does not bother me too much, and I have learned how to deal with it.  However, there are certain situations I am in once in a while where I would like to be able to reduce the tremor in my hands.  I have to do a pistol qualification course four times a year for my job, and I would love to reduce my tremor before the test.  I am drug tested for work and cannot risk using any CBD products, which is too bad because I have heard they can help with tremors.   I have a few questions for you. 1.) In your research regarding Essential Tremor, have you found a link between people with Celiac Disease also having Essential Tremor? 2.) Do you have any suggestions for reducing tremors before an event as described above? 3.) Is there any hope for completing healing Essential Tremor aka getting rid of it for good? Thank you.

    Make your health an act of rebellion. Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here News topic du jour: Ensuring planetary survival: the centrality of organic carbon in balancing the multifunctional nature of soils "Not only do soils provide 98.7% of the calories consumed by humans, they also provide numerous other functions upon which planetary survivability closely depends. However, our continuously increasing focus on soils for biomass provision (food, fiber, and energy) through intensive agriculture is rapidly degrading soils and diminishing their capacity to deliver other vital functions. These tradeoffs in soil functionality – the increased provision of one function at the expense of other critical planetary functions – are the focus of this review." Podcast Questions: 1. Calorie Restriction While Training Hard [6:58] From Maryann in THR I just got in from my best long run. Ever. It was a 12 mile run: 2 Repeats of 2 miles easy / 4 miles at half marathon pace. I want to thank Ryan Baxter for introducing me to Steph Gaudreau and the concept that too much calorie restriction while training hard is a mistake. My daily calorie intake gradually increased from 1,200 to between 1,400 and 1,800. My performance has improved and my weight / size has stayed the same. It's easy to see how so many female athletes get their heads so screwed up. 2. How To Get Volume of Protein, and The Magic of LMNT [10:01] Dave says: Hi Robb, I'm trying to figure out how to get enough grams of protein in my diet, and it seems almost impossible without massively overeating.   I'm about 210 pounds, and my ideal weight with healthy composition is probably in the 190-200 range.   Depending on who's advice you follow in the paleo/keto/IF/carnivore community I should be getting at least 100g of protein, and possibly as much as 200g by some accounts.   Over the last month I've been tracking macros carefully and eating basically nothing but meat, eggs, cheese, above-ground veggies, and some (good) fat.  But it's rare that I get more than about 80g of protein even when I try, and if I do get much more than that I feel over-full the entire day.   I've made a point of trying to see if I could get 150g of protein, and eating almost nothing but meat, still couldn't do it. Is it actually feasible to meet the recommendations?  The only ways I see to do it are to either drink gobs of whey powder (which would be rather unenjoyable) or workout so much and so intensely that my body would happily double up on calorie intake, which seems rather impractical as a fully-employed 53 year old .  Am I missing something? I'd love to get your perspective on this, and please accept my apologies if you've talked about this on your podcast or other forums-- I'm still catching up on several of them. Also, LMNT is amazing and has changed my life (I truly mean that).  I'm an avid mountain biker, and I use to routinely get cramps, sometimes quite horribly.  I tried everything. The only thing that helped, but only to a degree was using some salt tablets.  But after starting using LMNT this summer, they're completely gone.  It's amazing.  But even more:  I used to also routinely have heart palpitations (not the dangerous kind, but still unnerving), as well as restless leg syndrome.   Both are gone now.  And after I made the connection, I've noticed that if I feel the palpitations or the beginning of restless leg, within 30 minutes of taking LMNT they're gone.  That's happened frequently enough that I'm now sure it's causal.  I've literally never seen or heard anyone make the connection between RLS and salts/electrolytes, but it clearly mattered for me and seems plausible in retrospect given the role of electrolyte deficiency in nervous system and muscular dysfunction.  In any case, THANK YOU!!! Dave (By the way, since writing this a few days ago, the insight I had was that I was adding a fair amount of fat as well, which makes me full, so this week I'm reducing the amount of added fats (e.g., butter, clean Mayo, etc) to see if that makes room for more meat.) 3. Kids and Lockdown [16:56] Jen says: I was listening the new year's podcast re:kid's development and covid lockdowns.I  work in prevention and mental health awareness. The lockdowns have been awful and the lack of shared air community has been devastating on so many. But I worry about the rising cry coming from the education and occupational health sectors regarding "lags" in kid's development during cvid. This lament is (at least in my personal experience)  spawning conversations on how this proves that homeschooling is defunct and school choice shouldn't be an option-obviously parents can't teach their kids anything, right?  "Experts" showing up and telling the rest of the country that the people in an area are too stupid to handle themselves and their kids is a national legacy (Shenandoah Natl Park, the Chicago Projects) . While the detriment of lock downs needs to be explored, I worry about this rallying cry and what exactly it may mean for our kid's over all futures. Just my (crazy) two cents.

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here News topic du jour: Why the Bastardization of the Scientific Method Is so Dangerous One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” ― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark   Podcast Questions:   1. Brain Fog [30:01] Ryan says: Hi Rob, I've been noticing more over the past few years the phenomenon of brain fog. It seems to most often set in after eating breakfast which is a rotation of Eggs, Sausage, and Cheese with the occasional bread and Oatmeal. Plain eggs is the most frequent breakfast. My question is: Are there other foods besides gluten known to cause this fatigue/fogginess (like eggs and dairy) and how long does it typically take to set in? Most mornings when I experience the fogginess it is accompanied by an irritable mood. Important to note that this was never an issue until after high school when my diet changed to include significantly less breads, often going a week or more between consuming glutens and obviously getting older too. Thanks P.S Maybe I see you at Costco sometime.   2. The Next Generation - Veganism [35:32] Janeen says: A topic I do not hear addressed much is that with veganism on the rise, what is going to happen to the children born to vegans?  I have a friend who is an RN and is an internationally certified lactation consultant (or some such title) and she says the babies of vegans are smaller, have lower APGAR scores, do not seem to thrive as well as non-vagan babies. But this type of information never makes it to the news. Those babies were denied so much nutrition while developing, and once born, the mother's breast milk is less than ideal.  Will these kids not be able to reach their full potential despite the lack of nutrients that was in their diets? Our 32 year old daughter has been a vegan for 4 years or so and is about to get married. She believes the vegan line that it is a perfectly fine diet.  I have a degree in anthropology and there has never been a healthy vegan society since we came down from the trees.  My daughter does not believe me.  I am and NTP, all I know about nutrition is wrong, according to her. She feels my course was taught by pro-meat eaters and therefore they had an agenda. What will happen to our society if there are not enough intelligent people left to do be able to make the hard, philosophical decisions that need to made to keep this ship floating?   Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

    Make your health an act of rebellion. Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here News topic du jour:   Dishonesty about masking kids results in insanity To justify masking kids, proponents relied on bio-plausibility, and cited filtration studies, often performed on mannequins. Of course, the physical properties of a mask on a dummy are not the same as asking a child to wear it for prolonged periods of time. If a cloth mask captures 70% of particles or 80%; you still have no idea whether asking a child to wear that fabric mask (and accepting that use will be imperfect) has a net health benefit to that child or others around them. Universities' Covid Policies Defy Science and Reason Parents and students should challenge dogma with data. https://bariweiss.substack.com/p/universities-covid-policies-defy Dr. Marty Makary is a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. At these institutions of higher learning and thousands more, science is supposedly held in the highest esteem. So where is the scientific support for masking outdoors? Where is the scientific support for constantly testing fully vaccinated young people? Where is the support for the confinement of asymptomatic, young people who test positive for a virus to which they are already immune on a campus of other immune people? The data simply do not justify any of it. For the past two years, this country has imposed extensive, and often unnecessary, restrictions on over 54 million school-age children, even though they are the least likely group to suffer serious consequences of a Covid infection. Instead, we have damaged their education, kept them from seeing human faces, and treated them as vectors without a right to a normal childhood. College students are not the only young people we have harmed. A recent Brown University study found that “children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic.” The researchers pointed out that families of lower socioeconomic status were most affected. At the same time, adults have been allowed to socialize barefaced at bars, while children outdoors on playgrounds are still masked. This is nothing short of an abuse of power by adults over a defenseless group. Podcast Questions:   1. Creatine and Kidney Function [23:04] Josh says: Hi Robb and Nikki! Thanks for all you do. The information is so helpful and you are both entertaining to listen to. What is your take on crearine supplements and kidney function? Can creatine supplementation decrease kidney function by increasing creatinine levels or is this just a false indicator as some studies have suggested? https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15273072/ https://pediaa.com/difference-between-creatine-and-creatinine/ 2. Immunity and caloric intake [24:52] Daniel says: Hi team! I have been following your work for years and have been a member of the Healthy Rebellion on and off. Recently I have been eating more calories purposely to put on more weight during a strength phase. However, I have noticed that when I am eating more I am feeling more rundown/get sick more often ie sore throat, etc. When I am not eating as much I typically eat in a smaller feeding window and adhere more towards a higher fat/lower carb lifestyle. When you Google ‘immunity and caloric intake' it literally seems like each clickbait link opposes the other - one says eating less weakens the immune system, the next says the opposite. Do you have any opinion or thoughts on this topic? Are the increased calories causing the body to ‘process more' and therefore create extra work? Or is there no correlation at all and this is just in my head? For context I am 5'10 74 kg eating ~2800 cals/day to add weight with ~160g protein/day. 38 years old.

CBD and testosterone [35:01] Jonathan says: Hello I am a 42 year old male, to the best of my knowledge, in good health. I strength train 4 times a week and am looking to keep my testosterone levels optimal. I have no reason to believe my testosterone levels are not good, but am cautious about taking supplements that have a known negative impacts on testosterone. I am hearing a lot of positive claims for CBD, and believe that you've talked about personally using it. Two that are most prominent is: 1. to reduce inflammation and 2. To reduce anxiety. Do you know what the effects of CBD on testosterone? How does this differ from THC? Thanks! Jonathan https://gaiaguru.co.uk/does-cbd-affect-hormones/#:~:text=CBD%20has%20been%20suggested%20to,break%20testosterone%20down%20(4). "CBD has been suggested to reduce testosterone production by inhibiting the enzyme 17α‐hydroxylase, which makes Testosterone in leydig cells of the testes (4). However, CBD also inhibits specific cytochrome p450 enzymes in the liver which break testosterone down (4)." 2. Omega 6:3 Ratio When Lowering Saturated Fat [38:19] Nathan says: Hi Robb, First discovered your work in 2009 when podcast episodes were still single digits. My lungs had collapsed 14+ times, I had 3 lung surgeries, and long story short: I put a super rare autoimmune disease into remission thanks to you! In an effort to make this message easier to process, I've tried to ask the question first, then included context below if it's helpful. QUESTION: Dr. Cromwell recommended that I try lowering saturated fats to less than 15% of total calories, keep total fat around 60%, retest in a couple months, then chat with him again. Seems like a good next step. I've been mostly eating low-carb paleo + full fat grass fed dairy (keto at times, for mental performance) so I've been getting lots of what I've considered high quality animal fats...but this recommendation has me scratching my head regarding where I should be getting my ~60% of calories from fat from. I'm planning to increase fatty fish like salmon in my diet, but I'm a bit worried about getting omega 6:3 ratios all out of whack if I cut out much of the grass fed beef, grassfed full fat dairy, wild game, etc I've been eating. Egads! Thoughts? ### CONTEXT: After listening to your episode with Dr. William Cromwell, I ordered Cardiometabolic Risk Assessment and just got off a great call with him. Incredible person and amazing work he's doing. Anyway, everything looks good/great except for my cardiovascular risk, which is high (thanks to LDL-C at 174, non-HNL-C at 189, and ApoB at 136). I also have a family history of heart disease at a relatively young age, and though I'm only 34, I've been told that cardiac surgery in the future isn't much of an option on account of the fact that my lung surgeries essentially fused my lungs to my chest wall...so I basically need to just prevent cardiovascular disease in the first place. Given that I tested as highly insulin sensitive on his risk assessment, Cromwell said he'd expect me to do fine with up to 75g of carbs per day (currently doing 40-ish). p.s., my sister is a fishing boat captain and runs the only all-female crew (badasses) up there. If you and the family ever make it up there, we could get you the family discount (free) to go out on the boat and catch hundreds of pounds of incredible fish to bring back! Great for little girls to see women doing such badass work as well! You've made a pretty indescribable impact on my and my family's health over the years, and it's hard to thank you enough! 3. CGM sensor and BJJ [45:40] Jared says: Hey Robb, I'm making 2022 the "year of the data" and plan on spending time monitoring sleep, stress levels, etc with a wearable, testing ketones with finger pricks and tracking my blood glucose with a CGM (for at least a month). Any advice on where to place the sensor and how to secure it while rolling? I'm on the mats 4-6 times per week and I plan on using the Freestyle Libre 2 unless you have a better suggestion so ideally the sensor would stay stuck to me for 14 days. Thanks in advance for the insight and also for being a strong voice of nuanced reason during this covid shitshow.

Fueling for Wildland Firefighters [18:45] James: Hi Robb and Nicki! I am a wildland fire crew leader based in Ontario Canada. I am looking for information on how to best fuel myself and my crew for the sometimes gruelling efforts the job demands. I have listened to some of the other episodes regarding to fuelling for hiking and hunting etc., and while I've gleaned some valuable insight, I am aware that the intensity of the job might require a modified approach. Namely more carbs. We are deployable up to 19 days and usually have relative autonomy in fresh food choices, outside of the first 72 hours in which we have preselected, non parishable options. I personally choose the first 24 hours worth of food. While I do my best to fill our bag with canned fish, nuts, jerky and other sources of protein and fat, a sizeable portion contains candy, chocolate and other sources of quick sugar. In other words junk. For the sake of brevity, here is my question: What do you reccommend for innocuous sources of non-perishable carbs that can be consumed on the go? Thank you guys for all that you do, Wishing you the best, James   4. Offering a cautionary tale for excessive nicotine lozenge/gum consumption [25:46] Jack says: I recently quit using lozenges/gum. I began using it in college about 6 years ago for the stimulant/nootropic effect, not as NRT, as I've never smoked or vaped. I was bought into the idea that sure, it was addictive, but other than that it was basically harmless. So I didn't worry that much as my use became more and more excessive, especially since I wasn't using tobacco or inhaling questionable chemicals from vape liquid. I was consuming probably 30-40mg a day. As far as I can tell that isn't that far off from the initial starting dose for NRT. A day or two after quitting I began to notice drastic improvements in my circulation. My hands and feet were alternately tingly and itchy for a few days. My color vision improved, I suddenly noticed shades of blue/green had much more differentiation. Even just taking a hot shower felt incredible because my skin sensation was so improved. After a few days the dead skin on my feet started to peel, as if I was molting like a snake. And I hope my hair will grow in thicker as well, that is one of the main reasons I'm quitting (besides excessive spending on lozenges). And related to my hair, I do weekly microneedling of my hairline along with a daily compounded topical dutasteride/minoxidil/tretinoin formulation (microneedling and tretinoin both enhance the effect minoxidil). My skin heals a lot easier from the microneedling, and I have much less irritation from the tretinoin. I'm currently not the healthiest otherwise which didn't help matters, since I've gained quite a bit during the pandemic. I'm 27, and my fasting glucose a few months ago was 99, so not "clinically pre-diabetic", however in my opinion is definitely worrying for my age. But I never noticed the ill effects it was causing until I stopped. Interestingly, quitting cold turkey wasn't as difficult as I imagined. I didn't really have cravings, likely because it wasn't really tied to a physical ritual like vaping or smoking. But I could only do it because I had the week off from work. I couldn't focus or really do much besides watch videos and stare at the wall. I was grumpy but it wasn't unmanageable, but after a few days it felt like I had a really bad flu, apparently that can be an acute symptom of withdrawal. I could only sleep for a few hours at a time, so I had to do many short sleeps through the day and night. I hope this helps, I think there may be other people out there like me who are consuming extreme doses of nicotine. I recall there was a guy who wrote in a few months ago who used about the same daily dose of snus. 5. Discussions on Freedom [29:48] Ellen says: Hello! I really enjoyed your recent podcast discussion on freedom and the real dangers we are facing if we continue down this path. Thank you! It seems to me that the government wants us to feel alone, afraid, and to accept that we are the minority in our fight for freedom. By sharing your thoughts, I am reminded that we can make an impact if we stick together. We read a book with our nine year old recently that I thought I might share. It is called The Mysterious Benedict Society. Have you read it? There's also a TV show, modeled after the book, on Disney+. It is incredibly interesting and was filled with content to fuel discussions around freedom, control, courage, bravery, etc. and was a very sobering reminder of the challenges we face today. In the book, the antagonist uses radio signals and cell phone towers to send subliminal messages in order to control the minds of the citizenry. I was curious to know if you've read it or had any thoughts. :) Thank you for all that you do! -Ellen Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here News topic du jour: A Heart-Healthy Way to Eat Aim for an overall healthful dietary pattern, the American Heart Association advises, rather than focusing on “good” or “bad” foods. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/29/well/eat/heart-healthy-diet-foods.html https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/pdf/10.1161/CIR.0000000000001031 "The committee's advice on protein foods, published during the climate talks in Glasgow, was well-timed. Choosing plant-based proteins over animal sources of protein not only has health value for consumers but can help to foster a healthier planet." https://www.performancemenu.com/article/1384/Robbs-Farewell/?mc_cid=46bc74eeea&mc_eid=f235501518 1. Sleeping and eating on a extremely variable schedule [12:35] Jason says: Hello, Long time listener, first time caller. I have listened to your podcasts on adjusting sleeping and eating cycles when changing shifts, as many first responders do. However, I am trying to locate resources and best practices, for a more dramatically changing schedule. I work as a locomotive engineer for a class one railroad. Truly, I am looking for actionable things I can spread to what I believe is an underserved industry. My co-workers and I are often under rested and unprepared, which can lead to poor dietary and lifestyle choices. Our schedule is extremely unpredictable, we may work a night shift, be off for ten hours and head back in for the afternoon shift. Equally as likely to be off long enough to work another night or even the next day. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell ahead of time, as we get either two hours or one and a half hour notice before our shift begins. These shifts often end up being twelve hours long. As such, there are multiple times a week, where I may be up for over twenty-four hours. In these situations, I am unsure how to even attempt to regulate my eating or trying to sleep when I need to but am not tired. I am forty-six year old male 5'11" 210 lbs. I lift four to five times a week, often when I am tired, and try to get some steady state cardio in daily. A live Q&A would definitely be a great addition to all the work you guys already to, I would like to add that I greatly appreciate everything you do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.   2.

Plant Defenses [19:39] wzrdpow says: Are all plant defense mechanisms antithetical to human health or longevity? Thinking in relation to things like turmeric and sulforaphane.   4. Omicron [26:32] Jenni says: Hey, I'm an MPH, and this completely stumping me. Reports on omicron from the field describe it as a lingering cold with no hospitalizations-Quartz article 11/28/21 (https://qz.com/2095354/what-are-the-symptoms-of-the-omicron-variant/amp/). If that's the case, shouldn't we be happy and not locking down. It was a shift to a less catastrophic influenza that ended the last flu pandemic. We didn't vaccine flu out of existence. I know that we don't have all the data (but seriously that's just a mantra now), but if the symptoms are "basic cold", why is WHO and Fauci (last article I read had him making another reference to "the science" and I'm seriously going to vomit) flipping out? Thank you, Jenni https://www.honestlypod.com/podcast/episode/5bfb867a/is-covid-over-and-other-burning-questions-this-thanksgiving   5. Is the Covid response mass formation or hypnosis? Dr. Mattias Desmet [34:00] Joe says: Hi Robb and Nicki, love your work, thanks for all the excellent content. I came across a few interviews with Dr. Mattias Desmet who thinks that the response to covid can be explained by something called mass formation or mass hypnosis. Here are a few links to some interviews with him where he discusses this: https://jermwarfare.com/blog/mattias-desmet (relatively short and to the point) https://www.thestoryofmepodcast.com/dr-mattias-desmet-psychological-crisis-and-mass-formation/ (more of a discussion on the topic) (I've not listened to any other episodes from these podcasts) A written interview: https://dailysceptic.org/interview-with-mattias-desmet-professor-of-clinical-psychology/ Aubrey Marcus has done an interview with him, too, but I haven't listened to it: https://www.aubreymarcus.com/blogs/aubrey-marcus-podcast/why-people-willingly-give-up-their-freedoms-w-prof-mattias-desmet-aubrey-marcus-podcast Does this sound plausible?

Cannot Sleep After Hard Training - JiuJitsu and Weightlifting [21:18] Nick says: After a hard JiuJitsu training class (or weightlifting) I always have trouble falling asleep. I also have trouble eating, too. I think it's my adrenaline from hard rolling. I am competitive and this definitely affects my ability to rest. Practice starts at 6 and usually goes to 730-830. Both days I get insomnia if I train really hard. What can I do to relax my mind and body so I can fall asleep within two hours of training? I know carbohydrates play a role. I try not to eat too much during the day because I get drowsy at my desk job. I usually track macros and I began to up my carb intake to see if it helps the issue - it doesn't. For example. Today I ate 131g carbs from organic purple sweet potatoes. (143g protein from organic grass fed beef). All cooked with EVOO & seasoned liberally with Mediterranean Sea Salt, garlic and pepper.  I trained at 6pm. Got home at 830. I know I need food but I cannot eat so I recently I tried forcing myself a shake made up of 35g grass fed whey, 4 eggs, plenty of fruit and 1/2 cup of oats. I am just ranting because I am suffering from this insomnia right now. I just discovered your product LMNT and instantly bought it after reading your story on the Amazon store website. I thought that an electrolyte in balance could be the issue so I'll find out. I consume a lot of salt but maybe I actually don't. Then I found your Instagram and realized I can ask a question so here I am. Thanks for reading this word salad! I am excited to LMNT and resolve this insomnia! 2. Workout intensity, frequency, duration [28:11] Dan says: Robb, I read the Paleo Solution and have found it to be only the tip of the ice berg compared to the value of your podcasts.  Thank you, great stuff. I am looking for more guidance on workout intensity, duration and frequency for improving body comp. I've been doing a crossfit-type of workout at my club for six months.  They call it "Dynamic" but essentially its the same stuff focusing on stability, power and strength in weekly rotations. I usually get in 3-4 of these workouts a week and sometimes a one hour bike ride (18mph) on off days. The workouts are a full one hour with a "melt down" in the last 10 minutes. I generally burn 700-850 calories during that time, ave HR 70-75% with max HR above 90% (according to Polar HRM).  I'm not sure the instructors understand the concept of stress-induced cortisol release and I want to understand it myself. I am wondering if the length and intensity of these workouts are unnecessary beat downs; and/or if I am doing too many in a week. I started in March, weighed 236 and about 29% body fat (6' 0"). I lost 18 pounds over first 3 months with calorie reduction, higher-carb low fat. I then plateaued for 3 months with no changes in eating or workouts. I've been 100% Paleo for two weeks and the weight appears to be coming off again (down to 212 lbs now). Ideal goal is to get to 185-190 at 10% body fat. I hear you guys talk about "Cross fit beat downs" and working out too frequently; I'm not sure if I am falling into that. I am looking for a better reference of what is an optimal body-comp program in terms of intensity, duration and frequency. Any guidance is appreciated. Thank you for what you do. Dan 3. Collagen and Folic Acid [34:47] Kay says: My SIL, who is involved with a MLM supplement company, said that I should not take collagen supplement daily because it will influence folic acid in my body in a negative way.  She said her supplement is only taken for 10 days out of 30.  I have never heard of this.  Any truth? https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/4417592/ 4. Aging and Abdominal Adipose [38:14] Annette says: Would love to hear your comments on abdominal fat.    I am in good health for 65 yrs old.  Always had a "belly" but I am 116 lbs, 5 ft.    Not fat, but my middle holds 6-8 lbs of fat I know is there.  I have a good dietary intake, exercise 3-4 days weekly, 2 of those days are weight training.   I have good abdominal muscles under the fat I can feel.   Can I ever lose this weight?   I am an ICU nurse with a Masters in Critical Care, and I have my adult NP so I am not without a good background education.      I enjoyed one of your books on Paleo; I feel you are a great educational resource. Please advise. 5. Is "Prepping" The Only Solution? [43:37] Richard says: What steps can a person or family take (other than to be as healthy as possible) to mitigate this situation as best we can?  I look at what is happening in Venezuela, for instance, and wonder what I would do in that situation: an almost complete breakdown of society, with hyper-inflation wiping out saving and making income equally worthless.  Is "prepping" the only solution: lots of weapons, years of stored food/water/gas, a bunker mentality?  I'm not sure that is a viable option of the majority of citizens.  So, what are your thoughts on what the average Joe-citizen can do? https://www.foxfire.org/shop/category/books/ Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

    Make your health an act of rebellion. Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here News topic du jour: Durability of immune responses to the BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine "reports of waning vaccine efficacy, coupled with the emergence of variants of concern that are resistant to antibody neutralization, have raised concerns about the potential lack of durability of immunity to vaccination. We recently reported findings from a comprehensive analysis of innate and adaptive immune responses in 56 healthy volunteers who received two doses of the BNT162b2 vaccination. Here, we analyzed antibody responses to the homologous Wu strain as well as several variants of concern, including the emerging Mu (B.1.621) variant, and T cell responses in a subset of these volunteers at six months (day 210 post-primary vaccination) after the second dose. Our data demonstrate a substantial waning of antibody responses and T cell immunity to SARS-CoV-2 and its variants, at 6 months following the second immunization with the BNT162b2 vaccine. Notably, a significant proportion of vaccinees have neutralizing titers below the detection limit, and suggest a 3rd booster immunization might be warranted to enhance the antibody titers and T cell responses."   1. Low Body Temperature [18:16] John says: Hi, Im trying to figure out if a declining body temp is something I should be focused on. I'm 42 now and a couple years ago I started noticing my daytime temperature was not a consistent 98.6. No big deal I thought until more recently I started having a hell of a time waking up in the morning. After doing some reading on thyroid related issues (which run in my family) I started recording my daily temp. Most days my waking temp is 96.9 - 97.1. During the day it hovers around 97.6. I've done a full suite of thyroid tests multiple times and my Free T3/T4, TSH, Reverse T4, and thyroid antibodies are right where they should be so no obvious issues there. I generally follow a paleo diet but switched to strict keto for a few months this spring and now follow a low carb diet, no gluten. For activity I do have a 40 hr work week at a computer but my spare time involves part time farm work and 2x weekly capoeira classes. When I'm not at the work desk I'm fairly mobile. I'm male, 5'5” and fluctuate between 135-140 lbs. Daily calorie intake is usually around 1500 calories unless I'm burning hard with activity on a given day. Is this just par for the course as we age for some folks? Is my metabolism just slowing down? My energy and muscle mass is still excellent, but I am fascinated with this and wondering if it's anything I should keep paying attention to. Thanks! 2. Long-Term Blood Donation [23:23] Sherry Says: I'm a 61 year old female and a long time listener. I've been donating blood every couple months for several years. My mother had hemochromatosis. I was checked but fortunately do not have it. I know that blood donation helps keep iron levels in check and I like that my body refreshes itself by making new blood. I am wondering though if there's a downside to long-term, ongoing blood donation. I don't want to deplete some limited resource in my bone marrow, or something else like that! Thank you. 3. Wading through Scientific studies [26:32] Paul says: Hi to you both ,question for Rob My question is about the way scientific papers are written and the most effective method you have of screening out junk. I am not a medical professional or scientist. I work in IT and management during which I have developed a skillset around identifying ballshit. Whilst looking through papers in pubmed I find the summaries/ abstracts often very unhelpful or misleading. Then the main body of the paper is often rambling and I frequently find myself skimming details in an attempt to find basic facts about the study which I feel should have been stated clearly at the beginning. Information such as; The purpose of the study; the conclusions (if any); the scientific soundness of those conclusions (eg what kind of test with how many participants, the test cell characteristics and the control cell). Some papers are much better than others. But coming from a business background I am used to information following the following format Title 1 pager (recommendations) Appendix(method ,results,data and caveats) In my experience in business overly obtuse pros often points to deliberate deception or sloppiness. What is your view on this? How do you best navigate scientific papers in your research ? Are there recommendations you have for me so I can be more effective at working through these papers.? Are there services that grade papers with metrics. For example a simple way of filtering those studies without sizeable test cells and control groups. Or do you have any sources you consider to be consistently bad eg specific universities or business etc that you would avoid ? A final question on this topic is In your view what percentage of scientific studies are actually junk? Kind regards Paul Ps Love the show i feel with you both on the mic its very warm an nice, like sitting in front of a fire chatting about health. 4. Sea salt vs Electrolyte [45:30] Matt says: Hey Robb and Nicki. I've been listening to your podcast for a few years now and have definitely enjoyed the new format. Recently I read Sacred Cow, it was by far my favourite book of 2020. I have the paleo solution and wired to eat on my list of books to read at some point this year. To my question. For about a year now in the mornings my wife and I will each put a slice of lemon and 3 big pinches of Celtic sea salt into a big glass of water. Where we really noticed a difference was in the summer heat, when we would sweat. My question is, how is this different then consuming “electrolytes”? Are there any differences that we would notice by taking electrolytes instead of just a good sea salt? I would love to try LMNT one day, but being from Canada doesn't make it as simple. Thank so much for your content. Matt. 5. What's the deal with EMF Filters and Earthing [48:00] Derek says: Hey guys, Love the show. Now straight to my questions. I don't think you have covered this yet, at least not in great detail: 1. What are your thoughts on Earthing? Is this legit? It seems kind of ridiculous and tree-huggerish, but at the same time it has a ring of legitimacy. I've seen different methods recommended - from using grounding mats that you sleep or sit on to just walking around outside barefoot or sleeping on the ground. 2. What about EMF Filters? Again they have some ring of legitimacy, but at the same time seem kooky. Obviously there are waves galore travelling through the air, but is blocking out these waves (if the filters even work) really going to make that much difference? What about just removing electronics from the room. Does that really make that much of a difference? I plan on trying out some of these methods, from the standard remove all electronics from the room, to actually shutting off the breaker for our bedroom, but given that there are so many other factors that could affect how I perceive my sleep quality I thought I would see what you guys think. Without solid research or, at a minimum, convincing anecdotes I am definitely not going to be dropping a few hundred dollars on something like this, but I would really like to know if it actually works.

Peptide uptake orally [12:50] Andreas says: Dear both. First of all thank you both for all that you do. I am very grateful for you weekly courage, «sticking your neck out there», sharing your take on life while crushing main stream «dogma”. Love it, great job – please keep it up. Now, could you please help me understand how all the so called beneficial peptides in animal foods ends up in the human body to deliver any biological function? The human digestion system is very good at breaking down peptide sequences long before they reach their  destination to give any biological function (both spontaneously, non-enzymatically, like stomach acid, and enzymatically by peptidase etc.). Now days, I am experimenting using my chicken eggs as a “delivery vessel” by which I deliver non palatable but highly nutrient dense organ foods to my family indirectly by actively changing the egg nutrient profile(or so I think). The chickens free range and get plenty of sunshine in the summer, eat bugs, greens, wild herbs and berries, while I occasionally feed them organ meats(primarily beef liver and heart), beef tallow etc. They get no plant oils, soy and so on. They love the organ meat and look/act very healthy. I know the fatty acid profile of the eggs will change to a higher percent of for example steric acid (based on research literature), but not sure about the other vitamins, minerals and peptides from their diet actually ends up in the eggs – and so is passed on to my wife and kids. I have no problems eating meats like liver and heart, but they will not touch it, let alone eat it. But they absolutely LOVE my dishes that I preparer from those eggs (like carnivore waffles etc.). But if humans (or chickens) do not absorb many of these nutrients, peptides in a biological active form and increase the nutritional profile of the eggs, well, then the story ends there. A little bit like some expensive skin care products that my wife uses, that proclaim the price I justified with added water soluble vitamins that should be so healthy, but will not ba absorbed unless you eat the damn thing.. Best, Andreas 2. Non-carb processed food, issues? [18:10] Mike says: Hi, can't explain how important you guys have been in my life over the past 12ish years. I've listened to EVERYTHING and implemented SOME (realistically a lot, although I don't really have any health / nutrition / digestive issues so it's more of a favorite-subject/interest of mine than a dire need to make sweeping changes sort of thing). Question: I know ‘processed' foods are worse for us for a number of reasons and that there are different levels of processing (highly processed factory food, steak vs ground meat, blending mainly unprocessed foods to make a smoothie, etc) but my question is, are these processed foods ever better for us than the unprocessed? …or maybe equivalent, mainly when it comes to processed fat/protein. I've wondered for a while, if a quality liverwurst, from USwellness for example, might be an ideal food, despite the baggage it carries along with it ‘processed meat'. THE DEVIL! But let's be realistic here. My understanding of this product is that it's a nose to tail tube of goodness, from a healthy animal, all slapped together, with some spices. All good right? Is there any benefit or detriment to this sort of thing? Does the protein/fat being digested more quickly than if I chewed the component parts individually, really matter?? I know processed sugar becomes a blood sugar issue, but does processed fat/protein have a similar corollary?? Thanks! Side note, I know you always say chew your food and I think this mostly refers to people who have weight control issues and need the chewing/eating/fullness slowdown to moderate their intake. Clearly this is probably one way to answer the above question but is there anything else?? PS: I've often thought of getting a tattoo of the fraction 1/6 somewhere, to signify I was one of six listeners, with the added benefit that nobody else would know why the hell I had it!! Thanks… hopefully this shoots to the healthy rebellion e-mail… couldn't figure out how to ask a question to the new poddy. I joined the rebellion for a month last year and it's great and all but I just realllllllly don't like social media. (It's not you it's me ) 3. Lifting With a Slipped Disk [29:06] Trystan says: Robb and Nicki, Love the podcast! I'll make this short - my wife has had an operation on her back due to a slipped disk, but she's curious to start lifting. What do you guys think? I'm no expert, however it does seem a bit risky. That being said she knows her body and what her back can take more than anyone... Would love to hear your advice on whether lifting with slipped disks could be beneficial or downright dangerous. All the best, and keep up the good work. 4. Cluster Dextrin [40:43] Jackson says: I would love to hear your opinion on this! Thanks 5. Nicotine Adverse Effects? [42:45] Garrett says: Hi Robb & Nikki, 'Been around since the Paleo Solution podcast days, so while I'm not an OG-6 listener, OG-20 is not out of the question. I heard a Q&A episode a while back where a listener asked about the caffeine-nicotine protocol you suggested for special forces, or anyone working odd hours / graveyard shifts to stay moderately alert while still being able to unwind at the end of the day. In a similar vein, on a recent Huberman Lab episode he mentioned the potential benefits of Nicotine in treating Alzheimer's disease. I believe it is universally agreed upon Nicotine is a nootropic / cognitive enhancer. Now to my question - I'm Swedish, and we have quite the 'snus-culture' over there, our spin of dry snuff (tobacco pouches, but without the spitting you see with American dip). I've gravitated towards this as an alternative to drinking, and I should note I've moved to the tobacco free versions containing only nicotine (Zyn is a brand that is making it's ways in the U.S.). However, one can't really drink on the job, whereas the only bad time for some snus is while eating and sleeping, leaving about 16 hours of consumption throughout the day. Is there to your knowledge a 'healthy' range to stay within? In the U.S. they are sold in 3 and 6mg pouches, however the 'good stuff' I can get in Sweden goes all the way up to 20mg. According to a quick Google search, only 10-20% of the content is actually absorbed, meaning the dose "per hit" is up to 4mg. I could be on the high end consuming shy of 50mg per day some days. I've gladly taken in your and Andrew's notes as a compelling argument that I'm functioning better cognitively while staving off Alzheimer's disease, but I have a good feeling there's another side of this story I should heavily consider as for all I know I'm doing damage equivalent to smoking a pack a day, just wrapped in different packaging with different side effects. Appreciate all you do to keep us informed and entertained. -Garrett Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

Calculating How Much Protein For My Bodyweight [19:52] Gloria says: On your last show you talked about having 1 gram of protein for every pound of body weight. Other people say 1 gram for every kg of body weight. Which is it in your opinion? Thanks so much! Keep up the good work. I look forward to your show every week. 2. High Cholesterol and eating more protein [20:56] Kimberly says: Hi Love your show.  I have been listening since the beginning.  Please never stop recording.  In the last couple years (since covid hit)  I have lost 20 lbs.  I have a muscular body type, I am 54 years young , 5'4", weigh 137lbs (post menopausal) workout 5 days a week with crossfit, 1 day Yoga, and walk the dog 2 miles a day.  I attribute the weight loss with eating more protein.  I now eat almost 120 gms a day where before I probably only got 50-70 if that (did not track) . My protein sources are usually chicken , smoked salmon, tuna, turkey, once a week red meat.  I do add pure protein bars (20gms) towards the end of the day when protein levels aren't there yet. I went to the doctor and got bloodwork done and my cholesterol went up. It went from the total 226 to -244, LDL-101 to 131, to HDL-105 to 101, ratio-2.1 to 2.4, Triglycerides-61 to 62 from Sept of 2020 to Sept 2021.  ugh I know I should probably ignore it because my ratio seems great and I feel great.  For some reason its bugging the crap out of me, how can I lose weight and eat more protein and have the numbers go up?  Should I be concerned?  Thanks you both rock. 3. Butyrate and Tributyrin for Gut Health [25:37] Ruby says: Hi Robb!  Long time listener here (yeah! #throwback to Greg days) and current LMNT lover. I came across a supplement that uses a combination of Tributyrin and Vitamin D, and supposedly promotes a healthy gut, aids in healing leaky gut, helps reduce bloating, improves digestion and vitamin absorption, boots immune system etc. etc. etc.  What they say is that Tributyrin has been used in Spain for at least 3 years but is just starting to come to the US.  There are some studies on mice but not a ton in humans yet. I'm just wondering if you've done research on Butyrate/Tributyrin and whether or not you'd suggest experimenting with something like this.  I am mostly paleo for about a decade, but my belly pooches out a ton (granted, I've had 2 kids and I'm working on core function), I haven't had consistent bowel movements in months, and while my stress levels are somewhat high because I'm an entrepreneur, I get 7 hours of sleep a night and do my best to keep myself regulated.  I've tried probiotics, drink kombucha, try to get resistant starches (hate fermented foods unfortunately) and am pretty well versed in diet/health (thanks in large part to you!).  I'm interested in trying out this supplement but very wary of putting anything in my body that is unknown and I can't find much info from people I trust (like you) on this particular topic. So I guess my question is twofold - what do you know about Butyrate/Tributyrin and also, how to decide what is safe to experiment with? Thanks so much for dealing with all the BS out there to provide information to all of us.

Strength/aerobic/flexibility targets after age 50 [33:26] Jen says: Hello Robb and Nicki, I'm currently working as a health coach in a small clinical study to reverse cognitive impairment with “integrative therapy and lifestyle rehabilitation”. Can you point us to any reliable strength, aerobic, and flexibility benchmarks for men and women over 50?  Ideally, the fitness assessment could be done at home without special equipment. It could be useful for participants to develop greater awareness of their relative fitness.  Some seniors feel great about their occasional walks in comparison to their physically-deteriorated, sedentary peers.  But, outside of my health coaching sessions, the doctor will plainly state that just “walking isn't cutting it.” For brain health, it could me most therapeutic for them to engage in complex, cognitively challenging physical activities, such as dance, martial arts, or sports (at an appropriate level), and check to see what supplemental exercise is needed to meet cardio, muscular, and flexibility targets. The fitness assessments I found from the Mayo Clinic https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/fitness/in-depth/fitness/art-20046433 seem questionable in that both men and women at age 65 have the exact same target of 10 classic pushups.  Does the upper body strength differential between the two sexes really disappear by age 65?  I couldn't find an especially good resource for ages 50-90.  For instance, the Fullerton Functional test/Senior Fitness test has arm curls as the best assessment of upper body strength.  The presidents challenge at health.gov has assessments for students but not elders. If people want to be physically functional and free from chronic illness at a ripe old age, shouldn't they have be able to look for what needs attention at age 55, 60, 65, etc?  I'd so appreciate your thoughts! With tons of respect and admiration!! https://moveskill.com/athletic-skill-levels/ 5. Itching after Jiu Jitsu Class [39:47] Ryan says: Hi Robb and Nicki, Big fan of your work! I've been training jiu jitsu (nogi) for about 6 years and absolutely love it… except for the fact that every morning after training I experience uncontrollable itching on my body, predominately my legs, but sometimes all over. I generally train in the evening, so the onset is about 10-12 hours after my session. This has been frustrating to say the least. I've read that this can be a problem for exercisers due to sweat… but that sounds iffy to me, plus I never had an issue with other forms of exercise, just jits. I've tried probiotics and different soap/laundry detergent to no avail. The only thing that semi helps is to shower immediately after the itching begins or sweat it out. Usually subsides after about 30-60 minutes… Any thoughts? Oss! Ryan Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.

Non-marine Omega 3 Sources [14:25] Robert says: Hi Rob and Nicki. I am unable to supplement with fish oil because it severely increases my anxiety and will eventually lead to terrible episodes of panic and OCD. It took me a while to figure out it was the fish oil because you typically only hear about how beneficial it is and all of the positives from supplementation. Because of this I'm worried about getting enough DHA and EPA. I do eat fish about once a week/week and a half. I don't seem to have the same problem when eating fish but I'm sure I'm not eating it enough to replicate the same problem from supplementing fish oil and I also worry about eating high amounts of fish due to contaminants. I've also heard that getting omega 3 from plant sources like flaxseed is insufficient. How can I make sure I'm getting enough DHA and EPA? I'm 33 years old, have been eating low carb for 5 years, lift 4 days a week, I'm very active and fit and a healthy weight. Also any idea why fish oil does this to me? Acetylcholine? 2. How Much (or little) Protein? [18:29] Hilary says: I'm so confused about protein. Many very smart scientist wellness leaders say use it as a condiment and low protein intake = longevity. Others believe in leading with abundant animal protein to create strength and muscle which will = longevity. I'm a fit 63 yr old woman and confused about what science to follow. Thank you! 3. SARMs, peptides, & testosterone boosting herbs [25:52] Jamie says: Ay up Robb and Nicki, Ages ago, I sent you a question about ketogenic diets and TBI which you were gracious enough to answer on THR038. I have upped my salt intake as per your answer to that question and it has helped. In the proceeding time I have been doing more research on TBI and I came across the world leader in its treatment, Dr. Mark Gordon. His protocol centres around dampening down the neuroinflammation in the brain and restoring any hormonal imbalances that occur after a TBI. Although I am not 100%, I am definitely better and I just feel that it's just one or two adjustments that I need to make with the biggest thing, perhaps the only thing holding me back, sleep, or lack of it I should say. I follow Dr. Mark Gordon's recommendation of 100mg of pregnenolone before bed and whilst he reports in his clinical practice that for most people this tidies up their sleep, it hasn't done that for me. Dr Gordon says when this happens he usually prescribes a small dose of progesterone, 5mg, and this usually does the trick. Instead of doing that I wish to try something else as I have come across the world of peptides, some of which I have experimented with. I've tried CJC 1290 with DAC and ipamorelin for growth hormone release as well as BPC-157 for tissue and bone repair for some long-term issues I have had with my joints which has actually helped me a little bit. The CJC1290 and ipamorelin didn't really do much for my sleep but I have found deep sleep-inducing peptide (DSIP) which I have bought but not yet tried. I have also come across SARM's, (selective androgen reuptake modulators) which I haven't tried. They come with some pretty stunning claims to be made on both their benefits and lack of side effects. What is your take on peptides and SARM's? Would their long-term use turn off someone's own endogenous production in the same way that exogenous testosterone does? Instead of SARM's, which I am sceptical of being able to do the job of replenishing the role of testosterone in my brain, I am instead doing clomid, 50mg every third day, and also Dan Huberman's recommendation of using the herbs Fadogia Agrestis and Tongkat Ali to help boost testosterone. Would it be worth cycling these herbs, especially Fadogia, as from my understanding it mimics luteinising hormone? Could this then shut off my own endogenous production of luteinising hormone? Just one final note to make, it's amazing what you can find and then buy on the Internet, especially when using Bitcoin!? Thank you Jamie 4. Muscle Cramping and Salt [35:55] Ben says: Hey Robb and Nicki, Great podcast, I really enjoy and appreciate all you do. I have a question regarding muscle cramping. It is something I have dealt with for essentially my whole life. My father has had problems with hamstring, calf and hand cramping through his life as well. Personally, after harder workouts I notice my hamstrings have a very low threshold to cramp, as well as hands and abs. At night, my gastrocs and peroneals cramp as well. Since starting LMNT and supplementing my own salt to it (~ 6-8g total salt/day) my hamstring, ab, and hand cramps have greatly been improved though my calf cramps still seem to be present. The night time calf cramps fluctuate from 1-2 to 9-10 times/ night requiring I jump out of bed to dorsiflex my foot against the ground to get it to stop. I have tried some "leg cramp" pills from Sprouts which seem to help some but not completely. Sorry for rambling but lastly I have had my DNA run and it states I "wasted salt" and should add more salt to my diet. I am wondering if you think I just need to supplement more salt? (Though at times I feel I put too much in and disaster pants is a real thing) or if there may be something bigger that I should see a functional practitioner for? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you (For reference, Im a 31 year old male, crossfit 5-6 times/ week and am standing in the OR 3-5 times/ week. 6'4"; 225 lbs. Eat paleo) 5. Importance of Grass fed meat [40:02] Paul says: Hi guys I have a question about grass fed meat and the evidence for its importance for it to be grass fed. Eating meat from healthy well fed, free animals intuitively sounds like a good idea for your health. It also fits with the overall philosophy of paleo eating which I use as my guide through these things. However Living in Norway sometimes means that is not possible and I have to get my meat from the supermarket. It  got me wondering about what scientific evidence there is to support the hypothesis that grass fed /organic meat etc is actually better for your health. So my question is what evidence , if any , have found of this in the literature. If there is evidence are there some animals that are better than others to get from supermarket.I notice myself if eat half a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket i can feel pretty rough after that but half a kilo mince I'm just fine- same with any fish.
