Part 16 - Luis Villasenor on Implementing a Keto Diet & Building MusclePeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Luis is a smart and level-headed guy that doesn't get caught up in a lot of dietary dogma. He has been helping people lose weight and get in better shape for many, many years. He’s the cofounder of an awesome community called Ketogains. You need to google some photos of him to make sure you appreciate the advice he gives. He definitely is proving you can gain muscle on a keto diet even though most people believe you need a ton of carbs to do so. Take a listen and I think you’ll enjoy his simple message, which is definitely not just for people trying to get swole.
I’ve gained muscle on somewhat of a ketogenic diet over past 6 months and just released a video on youtube showing all the details because a lot of people have been asking about it. We also are back on Indiegogo with new “It’s what else you eat, not the meat” shirts and now unisex tank tops. We still need your support to make the Food Lies film happen. My production partner and I are matching every dollar that comes in, but we still have a ways to go to reach the full budget. Thanks so much and enjoy the episode.

Show NotesLuis is the co-founder of KetoGains.com but it’s not all about bodybuilding. It’s more about nutrition and staying fit and many clients are middle aged women. It’s not only low carb all the time, but it’s usually better His story of being chubby as a kid, then skinny as a teen Used a low carb approach to gain muscle after college Fat is a lever His rhyme: Protein is a goal to make you grow, carbs are a limit to stay below, and fat is a fuel so you are not slow Don't chase ketones, chase results You don’t really need to be measuring ketone levels unless you are using keto in a therapeutic context to treat a disease What is the role of protein and how much do you actually need? Gluconeogenesis Just eat nutrient dense foods and don’t worry about counting calories or ketones Your body doesn't know what you are deficient in Can be malnourished and obese at the same time Answer is nutrient dense foods Can’t replace one bad habit with another At some point you have to reduce calories one way or another Our ancestors managed calories naturally Prehistoric fruits were much different in edible mass and lower sugar People thinking baked apple pie with agave is part of a healthy paleo diet Need to change your relationship with food Got no time for keto breads and cheats Food has become and entertainment industry. Scientifically developed to make you eat. Cheesecake exists - it's your job to eat it responsibly Cost is not an excuse - eating healthy can actually be cheaper Can easily eat for $5-7 per day Sardines are cheap, delicious, and super nutrient dense Luis’s best sources of protein and vegetables More efficient metabolism when very fat adapted and eating low carb for a long time Evolutionary perspective on getting the most energy from things we do You can pig out at a bbq and just make it a warrior meal and not have to eat again for 22 hours and you’ll be fine Intermittent fasting and condensed eating windows, or as he calls it “intelligent intermittent fasting” Training fasted is not good for building muscle Appropriate feasting after fasting Gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet Insulin is a nutrient transport signaling hormone Can you lose weight and/or remain thin while building muscle at the same time? What about people new to lifting weights? Compound lifts - multi-joint exercises. Bayesian Bodybuilding Can actually train every muscle group 5 times per week for more gains Training each muscle group separately is known as the “bro split” He has 3 routines that he cycles through, each focusing on a lift, but includes full body Cardio myths It’s way more about diet than exercise Going to failure? “That which cannot be measured, cannot be managed” using apps or notebooks to track weights and routines You need to push yourself each week and constantly be adding weight Preorder the film here: http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production Film site: http://FoodLies.org YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/FoodLies Sapien Movement: http://SapienMovement.com Follow along: http://twitter.com/FoodLiesOrg http://instagram.com/food.lies http://facebook.com/FoodLiesOrg Theme music by https://kylewardmusic.com/
Part 15 - Dr. Georgia Ede on the Shocking Facts of Plant FoodsPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Dr. Georgia Ede is a psychiatrist, researcher, and an advocate of nutrition and diet as an alternative approach to standard medications. She’s also a speaker and writer and although has spent much time working and taking courses at Harvard, she has not fallen into their plant based diet dogma. She, in fact, researchers plants and some of their negative effects in a human diet. It really seems counterintuitive to most, but there is hard science out there about this. People are curing diseases and their depression and anxiety by cutting out certain plant foods.
She’s also an expert on Alzheimer’s and how what we eat affects the onset of this scary disease which we get into a little. We also do some more debunking of studies including the new low carb and longevity study as well as that old WHO study trying to claim red meat causes cancer.
Please listen carefully to this important and eye-opening episode. I really enjoyed my discussion with her and she provides a lot of great information.
We’re in the last 24 hours of the Food Lies Indiegogo campaign so please preorder the film there now to make sure you get it. Backers will receive the film a couple months early and there’s a bunch of other perks you can get as well. You’ll get your name in the credits as a backer of the film as well as options like the “It’s what else you eat, not the meat” t shirt and the special features bonus footage. THanks so much for supporting us in this project. It really is a lot of work and we’re not accepting outside funding - only from people like you. Ok now enjoy the show!

Show notesGeorgia had 2-3 hours of nutritional education over 4 years of medical school and didn’t receive any nutritional education while studying to be a psychiatrist for 4 years Nutritional epidemiology dominates most of the nutritional studies in the world Plant foods contain antinutrients and lack key brain nutrients, Dha, B-12 Refined carbs are mood destabilizers It is possible that chemicals that plants use to protect themselves can exacerbate mental health conditions by entering the bloodstream Plant seeds are the most heavily defended part of plants, have lectins and phytic acid which makes it hard for us to digest them Georgia has recommended an animal based diet as an all natural approach to treating depression Spinach contains iron that we can’t absorb Sugar rushes to the brain which makes it hard for insulin to cross the brain, this is a contributor to alzheimer's phytic acid is considered an anti nutrient, however it also fights cancer and prevents iron overloads in people Vitamins D, E, A, and K are all fat-soluble Two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble Her article in Psychology Today about the The Antioxidant Myth https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/diagnosis-diet/201712/the-antioxidant-myth Pom Wonderful does more harm than good with a huge load of sugar and a few antioxidants that aren't even bioavailable Sulforaphane, curcumin, oxidation, and free radicals Alzheimer’s and type 3 diabetes - it’s all about the insulin! Harvard School of Public Health has a goal to try to find a way to show meat is bad and promote grains as much as possible Epidemiology is the only area of science that has any indication that red meat is bad for you The one study the WHO put out on red meat being bad is based on very poor quality studies and only 2 are clinical trials in humans that don’t really show anything Debunking the new low carb decreases lifespan study Low carb group wasn't even low carb. There’s also way too many variables to make any conclusions THe whole hypothesis that meat would be cancerous is ludicrous in the first place Dr. Walter Willet defends nutritional epidemiology Harvard School of Public Health’s agenda If you eat all plant based diet you’re a healthy hero, if you eat all animal based diet you’re a deranged madman. They’re both extreme and both sides think they are completely correct and all the world’s problems would be solved if everyone went on their diet. http://DiagnosisDiet.com Twitter @GeorgiaEdeMD Preorder the film here: http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production Film site: http://FoodLies.org Podcast site: http://peak-human.com YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/FoodLies Follow along: http://twitter.com/FoodLiesOrg http://instagram.com/food.lies http://facebook.com/FoodLiesOrg Theme music by https://kylewardmusic.com/
Part 14 - Dr. Bret Scher on Debunking Low Carb Studies and Recommending Fat as a CardiologistPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Ok everyone, we’re back early! The Harvard studies and researchers need debunking. Low carb diets reduce lifespan? Coconut oil is pure poison? I’ve had enough of this insanity. Not only is Monsanto funding a lot of their studies, but I think they really believe this vegan stuff and it’s turning them into bad scientists. Good scientists don’t have pre-existing beliefs and they should work to disprove their theories. I think they need some more saturated fat in their diet to help their brains work better. So I got Dr. Bret Scher, who is an intellectual powerhouse to help debunk their nonsense. He’s a cardiologist, a speaker, a podcaster, a scholar, and a gentleman.
So let’s kick off season 2 with a bang. I’ve been planning and searching for guests for the past couple months and have talked to some really interesting people so far. This is going to be good everyone, looking forward to it.
Don’t forget we’re on Indiegogo trying to raise some more money for post-production. We need this movie to look as good as all the information that it provides - so don’t make me try to edit this myself. Let’s rally the troops and make this happen together!
Show NotesIt is hard for the average person to decipher what a scientific study is really saying, therefore people have to rely on news outlets Low-Carb diets can shorten life expectancy study Similar study in 2010, these studies just follow various individuals for many years and see who gets certain medical conditions and look for associations Low-Carb and longevity study looked at low carb diets in which 37% of calories came from carbs, these are not true low carb diets The collected data from this study was drawing associations rather than causations This study includes a paragraph stating how at baseline the individuals on low carb diets tended to smoke more, exercise less, and were a higher percentage at diabetics (they were less healthy from the beginning of the study and the study cannot control these factors) This study only collected data twice and asked participants to fill out a questionnaire based on what they can remember about what they ate over the course of the past several years Senator McGovern’s warnings High fat diet causes diabetes study, mice were force fed crisco and got diabetes Harvard researcher talking about saturated fat in coconut oil https://www.theguardian.com/food/2018/aug/22/coconut-oil-is-pure-poison-says-harvard-professor Minnesota coronary experiment Sydney diet heart study Carrie Diulus LDL responds to injury in the vessel wall LDL to HDL ratio is a far more effective way to measure cholesterol rather than just being frightened by a high LDL Low carb approach is not one size fits all, however all doctors should at least consider it as a potential tool Making it financially viable to actually take care of patients in big healthcare institutions Preorder the film here: http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production Film site: http://FoodLies.org YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/FoodLies Sapien Movement: http://SapienMovement.com Follow along: http://twitter.com/FoodLiesOrg http://instagram.com/food.lies http://facebook.com/FoodLiesOrg Theme music by https://kylewardmusic.com/
Part 13 - Gary Taubes on Nutrition Science; How Much We Know, How Little We KnowPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Today we’re hearing from Gary Taubes who I got a chance to interview for Food Lies a couple months ago when he was in LA. Gary is an investigative science and health journalist who for the past 20 years has been questioning the bad science that’s been done along with the mainstream nutritional wisdom. He’s written some groundbreaking articles in the New York Times and has written multiple best selling books. He’s won various awards for his journalism and is a real authority on nutrition science so it was a treat to hear his musings on all of this. He generously lent me 2 hours of his time so we covered a lot - there’s a ton of links in the show notes. We get into some interesting details at the end so stick around.
This actually will be the last episode of the season. I already have an almost fully booked next season of episodes and have begun interviewing. There will be a a little break because these episodes are a lot of work even if it doesn’t seem like it. I’ll also be busy for a couple weeks on a film tour across the US next week followed by some other filming and editing.
The big news is we are starting a new crowdfunding campaign as of today, this time on Indiegogo. Too many people missed out on pre-ordering the film and have been reaching out to me. You also can’t make a documentary on the $30k we did on Indiegogo. So please support us by searching for Food Lies on Kickstarter.com or clicking through from the show notes. Now here’s Gary.

Part 12 - Peter Ballerstedt on Cows Being Essential to Environmental and Human HealthPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Today we have Peter Ballerstedt who has a Phd in forage production and utilization. He’s also an expert in ruminant nutrition (this means cows, sheep, bison, etc.) He travels around the US and world giving lectures on the necessity and benefits of animal agriculture, for the health of our environment and human nutrition. I love him because he presents facts that go against the mainstream narrative and the animal rights propaganda that is absolutely rampant and taking over the conversation. He’s one of the only voices we have, so appreciate him and listen to his wise words.
You may have noticed I skipped a week putting out episodes - I had to prep for our upcoming film tour and make the Shawn Baker and Ted Naiman videos - check them out on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/c/FoodLies
It’s the last days of the Food Lies film Indiegogo campaign - please pre-order the film. It’s the only way to be sure to be able to get it and share it with family and friends. It could take months to get to Netflix or never even make it there. Who knows. Just know you’ll likely get the film 3 months in advance if you pre-order now on Indiegogo before the campaign ends on August 10th. http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production
I really appreciate all the support so far, we can’t do it without you all. Let’s hear what the leader of the Ruminant Revolution has to say.
Show notesWhat Peter does for a living - forage agronomist Eating beef is not only good for you, it is in fact good for the environment as well. All cows spend the majority of their life on pasture The facts around animal agriculture are skewed and basically the opposite of what the mainstream narrative has led us to believe We’re removed from the entire process of raising animals Very small and well-funded minority of animal rights activists with the loudest voices They claim the majority of the land is used for animal agriculture. The truth is there’s 4 times as much rangeland we can use for cows or other ruminants that can’t be used for crops The vegan rope starts unraveling Wildly exaggerated claims of environmental impact if we ate less meat Let’s look at insulinemia and diabetes Animal agriculture more greenhouse gas emissions than transportation based on a flawed and retracted study Cows aren't alchemists. The CO2 containing compounds they release came from the grass they are which got it's CO2 from the atmosphere. They’re finding it harder and harder to try to claim eating meat is bad for you so they’re trying harder and harder to claim it’s bad for the environment Don’t feel guilty if you’re eating some or all animal products in your diet and restoring your health If you haven't heard of Mikhaila Peterson http://mikhailapeterson.com here’s an articel https://www.healthline.com/health-news/meat-only-diet-eased-autoimmune-disease-symptoms#7 Jordan Peterson talks about his carnivore diet on Joe Rogan’s podcast https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGikB-54Lwk We talk about soil health The role of ruminants in reducing agriculture's carbon footprint in North America http://www.jswconline.org/content/71/2/156.short Climate change and CO2 How the carbon cycle actually works with grasses and grazing cows CO2 helps plants to grow faster The great horse manure crisis of 1894 https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofBritain/Great-Horse-Manure-Crisis-of-1894/ plant protein and micronutrient content is far less than animal equivalent Study with oysters, beans, and corn tortillas showing zinc absorption https://www.researchgate.net/publication/22684528_Studies_on_the_bioavailability_of_zinc_in_man_II_Absorption_of_zinc_from_inorganic_sources We can study the diet and outcomes of animals and make lots of conclusions, but can’t do that for humans “Our animals have never been healthier, and humans have never been sicker” Modern societies are dependent on ruminant animals. We need to meet the growing need for animal protein with the growing population. For an ancient food to cause a modern disease is ludicrous The danger of nitrates and nitrites has been debunked Omega 3 and Omega 6 What’s going on with this carnivore thing? All plant diets = healthy hero. All meat diet = insane person who’s going to die “Diet for a Small Planet” and “Population Bomb” Lab grown meat How’d the margarine experiment go? Can you really replicate all the intricacies of meat? It's not just a protein matrix. Do we trust the makers to even get the ratios of fat/protein correct? Ruminants are part of the lifecycle of grasslands and soil health, we shouldn’t exclude them. Essential for watersheds, carbon cycle - what’s their replacement? We shouldn't put a big portion of our food supply into the hands of one company that gets the patent or a few big companies Where are the nutrients going to come from? They’re starting from a false nutritional premise What about other wealth generation from cows, especially in developing countries What about the energy it would take to cool and produce all this lab grown meat? Same thing that’s going on in the healthcare system - we’re making a medication for each disease instead of treating the root problem Eating beef is beneficial to you and the environment Buy the animal products you can afford to feed yourself and your family and don’t let the other side and their fear-mongering influence you.

Part 11 - Lierre Keith on the Moral, Nutritional, and Environmental Superiority of Eating MeatPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
One of my favorite humans I have never met in person, Lierre Keith, shares a ton of information with us today. We talked for almost 2 hours and could have gone longer. You may recognize her from the Netflix film The Magic Pill - she was a hardcore vegan for 20 years and lived the lifestyle with passion. I won’t give away everything, but she wholeheartedly enjoys animal products now and wrote a book that thoroughly refutes the three major tenets vegans and vegetarians stand on. They claim a plant based diet is better morally, better for the environment, and superior nutritionally. As I know, and you at home probably are aware of by now, the opposite is true on all accounts. We also bring up the Sapien Movement near the end as a way to join together and fight the vegan propaganda, spread the truth, and work to improve the way we do agriculture and human nutrition. The site is live at SapienMovement.com and you can also find the group on Facebook and the twitter and instagram accounts, all under that name. The goal is to “End industrial agriculture and eat ancestrally” - other than that, It’s not defined yet. Join us and help us figure out what we can do to make a difference. As we speak, I’m in San Diego filming with some awesome researchers and doctors. We still really need your help if you haven’t pre-ordered or contributed to the film - it’s called Food Lies and it’s on Indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production Thanks so much to everyone who has supported us so far. Let’s hear from Lierre! Show notes: How she got caught in the vegan ideology Body began to degrade, but she ignored it due to beliefs Blood sugar and insulin problems Not getting enough protein, fat, or cholesterol Honeymoon of phase where veganism works Her spine and joints started falling apart Skin problems, reproductive problems Nasty soy and hormone problems Damaged stomach and can’t produce proper acid Reach out to her at http://lierrekeith.com if you are a vegan and having problems Her book The Vegetarian Myth begins with breakin down the moral argument Where we went wrong with salt https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/08/health/salt-health-effects.html Plants are beginning to become dependant on humans to plant them because they are too big, humans have to clear land Monocropping only takes from land, plants don’t give back and chemicals/fossil fuel is required in large amounts Most vegans don’t understand the negative traits of monocropping The water table has dropped far due to monocropping, oil drilling is used to get to the water Ruminants and grass coevolved Cows should not be fed corn Cows stimulate the growth of grass Bison make mini wetlands with their horns by stabbing land above water E. coli is a result of factory farming and over usage of antibiotics Cowspiracy is not based on real evidence and some of the individuals involved admitted they were wrong It is hard to present facts to groups of individuals who are always convinced that their ideology is correct despite what any evidence points to Grow your own food to reduce carbon footprint Lierre talks about her gardening experience/realization about the cycle of life Many vitamins are only available in animal fat Some individuals need to eat meat because they can’t make the enzyme that converts the vitamin a found in carrots There is not any plant source for vitamin B12, this has caused physical harm to some vegans such as damaged vision or hearing Omega-3’s and omega-6’s get converted into fats USDA used to not even consider soy a food Studies showing higher mortality rates for people using vegetable oils [LINK] Big health organizations have admitted that they have made mistakes when telling us what to eat The govt. is subsidizing the worst food for us, corn, wheat and soy Wheat is addictive 1800 marks the beginning of the fossil fuel age Agriculture requires intensive labor and is resulting in poor nutrition Lierre talks about agriculture during the age of empires to explain some of the negative traits of agriculture that are still relevant today Phytoestrogens in soy are harmful Soy consumption among children contributes to precocious puberty Soy disrupts the hippocampus which can lead to memory problems The Japanese eat soy as a condiment rather than as a protein substitute Quick overview of what Weston Price did Overview of “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration” Vegans have to cheat on their diet to maintain health Discussion about the two different metabolic states humans can exist in Noticed less low fat products when filming B-roll at the store It’s all about information - we know fast food and sugar are bad This Sapien Movement is a real thing.

Part 10 - Unifying Theory of Nutrition ConclusionPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
You may be wondering what happened to that plant based couple I talked to in episode 1… well they haven’t withered away from their poor diet just yet. Just joking it isn’t too bad and they seem to be pretty savvy with not eating a lot of the plant-based trash. You’ll also notice they started eating sardines in this episode, so they should be getting a great boost of nutrition there to keep their bodies in tact. It took us a while to find a time to record again but we finally got a chance to finish up the conversation and get into the environmental aspects as well. I’ll have some more guests talking about this side of things very soon.
So now this is the time when on other podcasts you’d be hearing annoying ads for products you don't care about. Luckily, I’ve chosen to not try to make any money off this podcast even though it’s taken hundreds of hours of work. If you're listening, you probably really care about this topic or are interested to learn more. If you're getting any value from this podcast, please show your support by contributing to the film. It’s called Food Lies and is crowdfunding now on http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production
Show NotesPicked up where we left off with Soy and corn are bad, many vegans don’t know this Impossible burger (vegan burger) has many ingredients that may be bad for us but moreover it requires more energy to get to your fridge - worse for environment than just eating meat All cows spend 2/3 of their lives on pasture There is not a lot wrong with processed meat Contrary to popular belief, hormones are not running through beef People have more levels of estrogen, vegetable oils and soy olis have contributed to this T. Colin Campbell vs. Loren Cordain Protein U shaped curve https://twitter.com/tednaiman/status/978288369011589120 There is a movement trying to say that we don’t need as much protein as we may think we do Food is 4 things, protein, fat, carbs, micronutrients Focus on protein and micronutrients while limiting your energy source to your goals - Unifying Theory You can vote with your wallet by creating a demand for sustainably raised beef when buying the right products When consuming animal products we are not eating what the animal was fed When eating liver you are not eating toxins Both the vegan and carnivore sides are in a business, however the government is more focused on selling corn, wheat, and soy compared to animal products Humans probably evolved switching between low carb and low fat diets in cycles because of not always being able to have access to meat Rotational grazing has many benefits and could be done on a large scale if there is more land, we could get this from land that is used to grow grains and soy for animals and humans We don’t need fiber. Here’s a study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3435786/ The China Study was supposed to be used only as observational studies Tuoli, the native people here ate twice the amount of saturated fat as Americans but are healthier Bacon and N-nitroso compounds https://www.wired.com/2015/10/who-does-bacon-cause-cancer-sort-of-but-not-really/ Alzheimer’s genes and metabolic damage from too many carbs Wrap up - we may have made some headway

We’ve got Amy Berger here to tell us about your noggin and how to keep it working well. She’s got a masters in human nutrition, she’s a certified nutrition specialist and a nutritional therapy practitioner, and an expert on Alzheimer’s disease.
What’s great about her is she’s taken the info from the cutting edge research being done in brain chemistry, metabolic disease, dementia, alzheimer’s, cognitive decline, and a ton more and done all the dirty work to figure it out and package it up so anyone can understand it. It may get detailed at times, but just listen on. I let her do the talking so sit back and be ready to soak up some info.
I’m not going to mention the Food Lies film crowdfunding on Indiegogo this time so let’s just hear from Amy.

Wanted to do an update on the Food Lies film: we’re shooting at low carb USA in San Diego in a couple weeks with Ivor and a couple other doctors, including the preeminent researcher in this field (along with Dr. Steve Phinney) Dr. Jeff Volek who’s studies are actually mentioned a few times in this episode. Really excited about this shoot and our next one at conference in Ohio next month.
Also really excited that we’re 34% funded on Indiegogo - there’s been a huge surge recently so I want to thank everyone who’s been contributing. I want to say the film is happening no matter what. I’ll pay for it myself if I have to. So please support it - there’s a link in the show notes.
This is really important to me. I’m not some rich guy like pete Evans who made The magic Pill. I’m a guy living on some money i saved up so that I could take time off to make this film, just trying to scrape by. My friends think I’m crazy. So tell a friend about it if you can’t contribute yourself or already have. Thanks so much.
Now on to this episode. Ivor Cummins is a sharp Irish gent. He’s a chemical engineer by trade and his specialty is leading teams in complex problem solving scenarios. This background helped him to really dive deep into cholesterol while also being unencumbered by the outdated mainstream views of the substance. He’s gone over 3,000 studies on cholesterol and made some amazing realizations. He now travels around the world speaking on this to help doctors and laypeople understand the new data and updated science.
I did link to some of the graphs he will mention - they’re pretty compelling - here's the link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kES6-ueXSghNuae5Qzh-QzbGwLThwdRs67eF9Qlle-0/edit?usp=sharing
Show NotesGot back from FOOD FOR THOUGHT: THE SCIENCE AND POLITICS OF NUTRITION http://institute.swissre.com/events/food_for_thought_bmj.html Most people have a surface level understanding of cholesterol that is highly misinformed Top experts have moved on from LDL being bad How your cholesterol ratios work and why they’re a better indicator. It always comes back to insulin. There’s more factors beyond insulin in all these chronic diseases Cholesterol is a vital necessity to every cell in your body. It has gotten maligned just because it’s found at the scene of the crime. How did we start believing cholesterol was bad? 1950s explosion of heart disease Ancel keys and the McGovern report Let’s spread the word that saturated fat is bad without a real study - what’s the worst that could happen?

Part 7 - Denise Minger on Questioning Nutrition DogmaPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Denise is a joyful ball of energy and talent. She speaks at conferences, writes books, and is an all around great person. I love her view on things and her balanced approach, but she does lean towards the high carb diet side. But here’s the thing - she advocates eating a lot of nutrient dense animal products, no sugar, grains, or vegetable oils - so a lot to agree with there. I want everyone to hear this to see an opposite approach and see if it might work for you. The Unifying Theory of Nutrition says things can work on both sides - so here’s the other one.
I still think it’s insane to expect people to live like a tribesman in the bolivian wilderness. You’re asking all of America to eat an ultra-clean Vegan diet plus organ meats. To maybe 99% of the population that sounds awful. Like the worst ever.
I didn’t agree on everything but I went along with it. In retrospect I could have challenged her more and I also want to see some studies that actually show this dietary approach works in a scientific setting. I could have brought up more of the points supporting low carb diet showing much better results in clinical trials and on lowering risk factors for heart disease, etc. but I didn’t want to argue and we already yammered on for almost 90 min.
So support the Food Lies film on Indiegogo and let’s hear what Denise is all about!
Show notesFamous for her teardowns of things like the China Study, and vegan propaganda like Forks Over Knives and the book How Not to Die http://deniseminger.com Her story of ruining her health as a vegan Questioning the China Study and blowing over night She always questions dogmatic thinking in the nutrition world From her book “we leave the classroom woefully unequipped with the thinking skills that matter most: how to balance open–mindedness with skepticism, how to identify bias, and how to challenge assumptions – including our own – in a way that’s truly objective.” Ancel keys and the story of how began thinking fat was bad for us The McGovern Report which prescribed America with a low-fat, high-carb diet. Why was meat demonized when it was and still is so highly regarded as prized source of nutrition? Confounding variables with meat-eaters. What are you eating with the meat? Lifestyles are very different for different groups Why did we ever think vegetable oils were good for us? America does not actually eat low fat. Humans can actually do well on a true low fat, whole foods diet How does this other metabolic state work? Big food would ruin things if they got the go-ahead from the government to do low-carb high fat I don’t believe it’s realistic at all to expect people to eat this way in America. You’re asking people to eat a Vegan diet plus organ meats What would you actually be eating on this sort of diet? If you’re vegan or vegetarian this doesn’t work Do vegetables have anti-nutrients or other toxins we should be worried about? Is fiber necessary? Nutrient density and satiety Problem with people eating all the time Killer combo of fat and sugar… it’s irresistible So how do we figure this all out? It’s confusing when 2 totally different paradigms seem to work. Eating whole foods, going back to nature Preorder the film here: http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production Film site: http://FoodLies.org Podcast site: http://Peak-Human.com Youtube: http://youtube.com/c/foodlies Follow along: http://twitter.com/FoodLiesOrg http://instagram.com/food.lies http://facebook.com/FoodLiesOrg Theme music by https://kylewardmusic.com/
Part 6 - Dom D’Agostino on Keto, Carbs, and CancerPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Today we have the mighty Dom D’Agostino who is at the forefront of the science behind why low carb diets work and specifically the more extreme form of a low carb diet you’ve probably heard a lot about lately - the ketogenic diet. It can be used therapeutically with the help of doctors to treat and reverse diseases like type 2 diabetes and epilepsy. It can also help the everyday person lose a lot of weight if done correctly. It’s not a fad diet - although it currently could be considered a fad just because technically it is very popular right now and might get less popular in the future. It is however quite the opposite as our ancestors have likely been eating in a similar way for millions of years depending on the geography, time of year, and current world climate.
I’d like to apologize for not checking the audio while I recorded - there was a effects knob on my old school mixer I use that got turned on and it put some sort of concert hall echo effect on my voice.
The indiegogo campaign is going well - thanks for the support. Again - I’m not trying to make any money off this film (and I surely won’t), just break even and fund the rest of post production. So watch the trailer and preorder copy to support us.

Part 5 - Zoe Harcombe on the Weird and Backwards World of NutritionPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Today I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Zoe Harcombe has a PhD in public health nutrition, she speaks at conferences around the world, she’s wrote many books, and she’s a true gem. She currently lives in rural England and apparently has a great mic and internet connection because she sounded like she was in studio with me. She’s an expert on dietary guidelines (and how unscientific our current ones are), nutrition and obesity.
She’s a prolific writer and has an amazingly informative site that I use frequently and I suggest people check out to learn about this stuff - it’s http://zoeharcombe.com - So let’s hear what she has to say!
Before we start I have to give a shout out to everyone who’s contributed to the Indiegogo campaign, I’m so grateful. We’re extending it 30 more days and I’m sure we’re going to hit our goal if everyone continues to support us by pre-ordering a copy of the Food Lies film.
Show NotesShe used to be vegetarian, but has reformed! Vegetarian bias is rampant Saturated fat is in everything - how is it bad? Our nutrition guidelines are BS Why 5 a day isn't based on anything High nutrition of meat, fish, eggs, dairy and low nutrition of fruit and some veg How you can eat a nutrient complete diet for $5.53/day How cancer is not caused by whole foods like red meat that we’ve been eating for millions of years Big fellas at weddings crushing rice at every meal There’s more myths out there we’ve all just come to believe including bad cholesterol, drinking tons of water, eating tons of fiber The Vegetarian Myth (Lierre Keith - great book http://LierreKeith.com ) all their arguments break down Cows and other ruminants are imperative to a healthy planet and food security Vegan/vegetarian food is raping our planet Allan Savory’s TED talk https://www.ted.com/talks/allan_savory_how_to_green_the_world_s_deserts_and_reverse_climate_change Grass-Fed Nation by Graham Harvey https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28256297-grass-fed-nation No such thing as a heart-healthy grain. But eat what’s in front of you and don’t be a dick. Dr. Perlmutter Grain Brain - read this too, it’s great Basically universally feel better when people come off of refined grains, sugar, and vegetable oils Thermodynamics, fat, and the human body Why calories in doesn't equal calories out Gaining weight while skiing 8 hours a day and eating pasta and me gaining weight while hiking 8 hours a day and eating a bit of rice. Too much exercise hurts weight loss a lot of the time Are things getting better in regards to this info spreading?

Part 4 - Dr. Shawn Baker on Human Evolution, Meat, and Healing Yourself Through DietPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast addFor many this man needs no intro, he’s the savage carnivore orthopedic surgeon who deadlifts 700 something pounds. He’s lighting up Instagram and twitter these days as the unofficial president of the carnivore movement that I’ve just named him. Anyway, he’s a great guy and shares a lot of wisdom in this episode. And no, he doesn't think everyone should be a carnivore and either do I. We need to look at all sides of nutrition and I have Denise Minger coming on soon who I highly respect and has a very opposite view of things… and it’s not veganism… Ok so there’s an interesting series of events unfolding right now as I’m recording and releasing this which begins 5 years ago. You're going to have to listen to the show to hear it. Please support the Food Lies film on Indiegogo - we really need you to complete post-production and the last few interviews. Watch the trailer and preorder a copy here: http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-production
Show notesCaught him for the film interview when he was in town for Joe Rogan’s podcast Toxins are dose-dependent, yet this is not consistent with eating meat Epidemiology in nutrition is very flawed Shawn is sort of the ringleader in the carnivore world and is collecting thousands of success stories from around the world. People treating their diseases by just eating meat Younger and younger people are getting metabolic disease these days Modern carnivore diet is based on millions of years of humans eating meat. It’s actually one of the only foods no humans have an intolerance for. People start it as an elimination diet - if you’re having problems you take away everything but meat and the add foods back in to see how they affect you. Some people never add the foods back in… Until you experiment you don’t know if you could be living much more optimally What’s up with us thinking we need tons of fiber? Your body absorbs basically all of the nutrition from meat… not so much from plants What Doc Baker eats on an average day Eating should be simple and satisfying We’ve created a food system based on endless options and engineered flavors Human skeletons and brains shrank when we invented agriculture and started eating a larger portion of grains in our diet Can too much protein cause a blood sugar rise due to gluconeogenesis? Dealing with vegan hate Vegans are confused on how the circle of life works The vegan diet supports Monsanto and monocropping which ruins the environment. We’re going to start a movement! People need to be more in touch with how food is grown Mixed farming as we’ve done in the past that is sustainable Gabe Brown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfTZ0rnowcc Lab grown meat His blood work and labs after eating only meat for 18 months His experience with the medical system as an orthopedic surgeon What can we do?

Part 3 - Prof. Tim Noakes on Dietary Misconceptions & Finding the TruthPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Today we have Professor Tim Noakes and I gotta say I was so excited to interview such a highly respected and world renowned scientist and researcher.
He has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He has been cited more than 16,000 times in scientific literature and has been rated an A1 scientist for a second 5-year term. He founded the Noakes Foundation which does critical research on these new dietary approaches and helps underserved communities eat better. He’s changing million of people’s lives in South Africa and the world as one of the biggest voices in the low-carb high fat movement.
Please listen to his story because it’s very important. He was in great shape his whole life as an ultra endurance athlete and marathoner yet still developed type 2 diabetes. You can be thin and fit and still be damaging your body with a high carb diet that athletes believe is necessary. So please take a listen to his words of wisdom.

Won’t I die of heart disease if I eat a bunch of saturated fat from red meat? Is cholesterol bad for you? I thought we should all be eating a bunch of heart-healthy grains? Ok but whole grains have to be good for me right? Where’s the evidence that we need a bunch of fiber?

Part 2 - Dr. Ted Naiman on Lifelong HealthPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Our first guest is the great Dr. Ted Naiman. Maybe you know who that is, maybe you don’t…. But I’ll just say, listen to the man. Some of this may be new to people who aren’t total nutrition nerds - but just know it’s the truth. Dr. Naiman might be the most on-point authority on how your metabolism works, how to stay lean and fit, and how to eat optimally.
He has a ton of experience with thousands of patients and sees first hand how different diets affect all different kinds of people.
I’ve learned so much from him and a lot of things clicked into place once I started really understanding his way of thinking about nutrition.
So before we start, just remember that we’re trying to break even on all this by crowdfunding to get the film made. Please pre-order it now on Indiegogo - just search for Food Lies or click here - Thank you!

This episode gives you a complete look at nutrition. Learn what to eat, what not to eat, and why. Learn how basically all chronic diseases come from us moving away from the foods our ancestors ate (you know, the ones free of all chronic diseases). Everything will make a lot more sense after this episode.

Peak Human Podcast PreviewPeak Human - A Food Lies Film Podcast add
Hi Everyone, I’m Brian Sanders, and I’m making a feature length documentary called Food Lies which is about the sordid history of our dietary guidelines, the epidemic of chronic disease and obesity that followed, what the new science is telling us humans should actually be eating, and how to eat that food sustainably.
As I make the film, I’m talking to a bunch of experts who have graciously lent me their time to create this podcast. Actually, you can think of this as a free audio course on nutrition - all without ads. I’m doing this to support the Food Lies film which is now crowdfunding on Indiegogo.com.
Over the next 13 episodes you’ll hear from some of the top experts in their field, specifically chosen to cover all areas of this complicated subject. There’s so much conflicting health information out there, it’s almost impossible to know who and what to believe. I quit my job and have spent the past year researching it from all sides, even veganism, and this audio series provides an overview.
By the end, all the confusion around health and what we should eat should make sense. You’ll learn so much more of the science behind this all, like the real deal with cholesterol and saturated fat, how to prevent cancer and diseases, if carbohydrates can be part of a healthy diet, and how ruminants like cows are essential for the health and future of the soil and environment
The first part of the season includes these amazing doctors, researchers, and journalists:Professor Tim Noakes Dr. Ted Naiman Dr. Zoe Harcombe Gary Taubes Dr. Dom D’Agostino Denise Minger Dr. Shawn Baker Amy Berger Peter Ballerstedt And more to come
There’s so much awesome information in this audio series, I can’t wait to share it with everyone. So please subscribe now wherever you get your podcasts.
You're probably wondering “So who’s this Brian guy?” by now. Well, first of all, I’ve been a filmmaker since middle school. I’ve also built and sold a tech company, worked as a mechanical engineer, and now, I’ve quit my job to devote the rest of my life to this cause. I’ve read dozens of books, watched dozens of films, watched hundreds of lectures and presentations, and listened to over a thousand hours of podcast episodes on this subject.
I’ve looked at all the different approaches and figured out what the common truths are and what’s BS. I now understand the unifying theory of nutrition that pulls together all sides - from Paleo to Vegan. Nobody is really talking about this - everyone is too busy being blinded by their tribe.
I’ve also put this research into practice, and now, at age 35, I’m in the best shape of my life. My vitals and blood work are flawless and I haven’t been sick in 3 years. The same goes for countless family and friends, as well as millions around the world. I’m so excited to share this all with you.
Once again, the film is called Food Lies and we’re crowdfunding now on Indiegogo.com. Please support us and preorder a copy the film. We also have tons of great rewards like the limited edition Real Foods challenge coin. Also don’t forget to subscribe to this podcast as the episodes will be airing soon.
