  • Today is a special show that I really enjoyed with 2 guests - Dr. Cate Shanahan and Tucker Goodrich. I had Tucker on years ago for episode 20 and he laid out the entire case against seed oils which was very compelling. Dr. Cate has been on twice already (more recently) and is a wealth of knowledge on many, many things, especially the dangers of seed oils and reinforcing the Sapien diet concepts.

    We cover how people get fat & sick all the way down to the mitochondrial level. We discuss the different players in this process including seed oils (or more specifically excess amounts of omega-6), refined grains, and sugar.

    We also do my favorite thing and look at all sides of the arguments. We use an article a seed oil supporter wrote as a tool to check in on the studies and claims cited. You won’t want to miss this one! It’s a long one, but we cover a lot, and there’s a bunch of great new info.

    This podcast is made possible by my company Nose to Tail where we offer nutrient dense, whole foods delivered to you.

  • We jump in the weeds pretty quick but it gets better as it goes on. This is an interesting one with a scientist who’s studying mice and looking at how different fats affect disease. Kyle was on a mission to find “the perfect diet.” He was raw vegan and moved to raw meat and organs. He thinks a big problem is the high PUFAs in our diet and unnatural iron from fortified grains. He also has some ideas for people who have been on very low carb or carnivore diets and have problems like being cold, waking up in the night, women losing their period, or thyroid problems. Please listen to this one with an open mind!

    Kyle J. Mamounis, has a doctoral degree in nutritional science from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey USA. He is currently a researcher at University of Central Florida in Orlando. His primary research interest is investigating the effects of fatty acids on energy balance regulation. He maintains a science blog with posts on his research interests, reviews of science magazine articles and general cellular physiology at www.nutricrinology.com

  • Welcome back everyone! I’m Brian Sanders and this is Peak Human - the podcast where you start back at episode 1!

    I met Ben at our Toronto MeatUp in 2019 and really like him - maybe it’s because he eats pretty similar to how I do - 2 Sapien meals per day of mostly animal foods and low anti-nutrient plant foods on the side. Seriously though he’s really great and has an awesome mindset on pretty much everything. Goes way beyond building muscle - which is important for absolutely everyone listening. It’s not about being a bodybuilder and we don’t talk much about that - it’s about effectively doing some kind of workout to carry some lean muscle mass which everyone needs and will benefit them as they age.

    His info is legit - I already have been getting a better workout since we recorded this episode last week. I took some of his advice and went slower, stayed under control and focused on the muscles I was trying to work and was sore the next for the first time. Gyms are still closed in LA so all I have is my living room yet I was still able to train my muscles hard in my little 15 min routine I do.

    We actually talk way more about the mental side to diet, health, and living a meaningful life. This really was a great episode that touched on so many important topics that haven't been explored with previous guests.

  • Welcome back to show everyone, I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope everyone is starting back at episode 1 to make sure to catch all the great info. This is supposed to be an audio series on health & nutrition as well as lifestyle and it unfolds live over the past 112 episodes. I don’t have sponsors so I don’t have any other motivations to do this podcast other than to provide valuable information that I believe in. Each guest is purposefully picked and researched and adds another piece to the endless puzzle of human health.

    Today I’m talking with my friend Judy Cho who I’ve been following for a long time on Instagram and has done a great job of providing people with easy to understand animal-based health information. She is a nutritional therapy practitioner and the author of Carnivore Cure. Judy holds a Psychology and Communications degree from the University of California, Berkeley. Judy has a holistic health private practice and works with clients by focusing on the root cause for an array of health challenges. Together, they work to create individualized solutions that are sustainable for the long term.

    She lives in Austin and will be part of our growing Sapien community there. We start off with some mask and covid talk, so I want to put out a trigger warning for sensitive viewers who don’t want to hear differing opinions than the ones on mainstream media. For the first time that I’m aware of a guest talks about vaccines. I don’t like to touch the subject but it was nice to hear some thoughts on this from someone who’s balanced and considers both sides.

  • This interview has been a long time coming. I’ve always loved everything Robb has been doing over the years. He’s been doing great work in this space far before I had a clue about health. It was a treat to dive deep with him on a variety of topics including censorship, the importance of the free share of ideas, germ vs. terrain theories, carnivore, protein & lifespan, seafood & human development, seed oils, electrolytes, and a lot more. It’s a very different episode than any of his recent interviews so I definitely wouldn’t miss this one!

    Everyone listening should already know who he is, but it doesn’t hurt to read over a quick bio:

    Robb Wolf, a former research biochemist is the 2X New York Times/WSJ Best Selling author of The Paleo Solution and Wired To Eat. Robb has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world via his top ranked iTunes podcast, books and seminars. He is the co-creator of the Sacred Cow film and book as well.

    Robb has functioned as a review editor for the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism (Biomed Central) and as a consultant for the Naval Special Warfare Resiliency program. He serves on the board of Directors/Advisors for: Specialty Health Inc, The Chickasaw Nation’s “Unconquered Life” initiative and a number of innovative start ups with a focus on health and sustainability.

  • Hello, hello everyone, it’s time for another great guest on the Peak Human podcast. I’m Brian Sanders the founder of Sapien.org, NoseToTail.org, and creator of the Food Lies film that I continue to work on daily while I do these podcasts and post daily on social media. You can check out clips from the Food Lies film interviews and other presentations I’ve done on the Food Lies youtube channel.

    Today I’m talking to the great Michael Crawford, PhD. He is a storied researcher and has contributed a lot to our knowledge on brain development, human evolution, and marine foods high in DHA. I think the meat crowd needs to rally behind seafood a bit more and recognize its unique nutrients. He’s a sharp guy for an older fella and there’s a lot to learn in this one!

    Dr. Michael Crawford is a professor and researcher at the Imperial College of London. He is part of the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Metabolism, Digestion, and Reproduction. He is the Director of the Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition, Founder Trustee of The Mother and Child Foundation and The Little Foundation. His research focuses on (i) the biological reason why docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) has been so unique in neural signaling for the past 500-600 million years of evolution (ii) application of the knowledge to prevent and treat neurodevelopmental disorder.

    To date we have organised 22 international conferences on nutrition, brain development and mental health. He also has an impressive list of publications I’ll link to in the show notes.

So far I’ve turned them all down so I can remain independent from any outside interests. I have my own beneficial products and services we offer at Http://Sapien.org and http://nosetotail.org to support the show, the film, myself, and my great team. I make a lot less money this way, but it’s a lot more satisfying to not have to rely on anyone else or promote any other products. However, it only works if people support Sapien and Nose to Tail. Luckily we have amazing things to offer. Sapien is the health platform I’ve built with my business partner Dr. Gary. We have a practice in Woodland Hills, CA as well as an online program anyone in the world can join if they’re serious about weight loss and disease reversal using diet and lifestyle. You can find out more about the program at http://Sapien.org You can also get the free Sapien Food guide there. Another thing we’ve got going is the Sapien Tribe. We have a growing community of people who are living this lifestyle and dominating life. I know that sounds pretty bro-ey, but it’s what is happening. People have gone from a life of mediocrity or even ill-health to being in top shape, reversing their chronic disease, having great body composition, and not getting sick anymore! Tribe members also get all the extras like the bonus episodes of this podcast, the extended show notes, the private members area, and special access and live Zoom calls with Dr. Gary and me.

I don’t know of anyone else getting all these organs mixed in like we do. I think it’s the best and tastiest way to eat the fresh organs to get the ultimate in nutrient dense, bioavailable nutrition. We also have high omega 3, low omega 6 pork and chicken. We feed them a special gluten free, non-GMO feed that makes their meat and fat very low in PUFAs.

  • Hello beautiful people, welcome back. This episode is a special one and I won’t do a whole intro. I’ll just let you know there’s 3 different interviews starting with one of the original grass fed, grass finished ranchers in America who I partnered with to do Nose to Tail. He called in on the phone and the sound quality wasn’t great, but his story and information are spot-on. Really great stuff from a 76 year old rancher who really knows health and is living proof of what happens when you eat meat in a healthy way.

    He’s really into the Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio and keeping the ratio near 1 to 1 like we would have ancestrally. He’s been onto this about 20 years before anyone else. This is really awesome stuff.

    The next interview starts 19 minutes in and is with my South African business partner Gary I make the Nose to Tail biltong with. This is the traditionally made South African beef product that is kind of like jerky but a lot better. It is air-dried for 7 days instead of dehydrated at high heat in a matter of hours like jerky. We also don’t use any sugar or other preservatives or curing agents. We use all the good fat instead of trimming it off like other people do. We’re developing a dried sausage version with liver and heart. It will be the first of its kind in the world!

    The final interview 39 minutes in is with Tommy who makes the regeneratively grown beef tallow body care products. He makes them all by hand and uses nothing but a few natural ingredients. He’ll talk about the origins of beef tallow as soap throughout human history and why using animal fat on your animal body is so beneficial.

    Really interesting stuff here with all 3 interviews that you won’t hear elsewhere. Without further ado, let’s jump in.

  • We’re back for season 8 of the podcast. I took an unannounced break to work on the Food Lies film and make sure I’m getting top quality episodes and guests. I really don’t want to just crank these out each week just for the sake of having an episode to release. I am constantly reading books, watching lectures, reading scientific papers, and previously going to conferences to seek out the best guests the world has to offer. Our guest today, Mary Ruddick, is just that.

    She is a nutritionist, teacher, and author of books and online educational programs. People come to Mary to resolve their otherwise impossible health conditions. She teaches them tools they can implement to rebuild their own immune systems, nervous systems, holobiome, and microbiome and once again take control of their health.

    Mary specializes in rebalancing the microbiome by addressing nutritional and epigenetic aspects that underlie various physical and mental health disorders. She is a specialist in the fields of autoimmunity, histamine intolerance (MCAD), mental disorders, and nervous system disorders that include dysautonomia, seizure disorders, and autism.

    She’s been a nutrition professor, she’s travelled the world living with and observing other cultures and native-living tribes, she’s worked for big organizations teaching them about diet and lifestyles for disease prevention, she’s miraculously cured her own ailments that had her bed-bound for years and years, and so much more. I’ve been talking to her for months and am ready to call her the Sherlock Holmes of Health. She’s the real deal so I really hope you listen to this episode in entirety. We even have a part 2 coming out next week.

    So I hope everyone got a chance to catch up on the back catalogue of episodes during this little break. I’m so happy to hear all the great life transformations taking place, especially when people go back to listen from episode 1.

    Alright, so another reason I don’t need to crank out episodes each week is I don’t have any sponsors. So far I’ve turned them all down so I can remain independent from any outside interests. I have my own beneficial products and services we offer at Http://Sapien.org and http://nosetotail.org to support the show, the film, myself, and my great team. I make a lot less money this way, but it’s a lot more satisfying to not have to rely on anyone else or promote any other products.

    However, it only works if people support Sapien and Nose to Tail. Luckily we have amazing things to offer. Sapien is the health platform I’ve built with my business partner Dr. Gary. We have a practice in Woodland Hills, CA as well as an online program anyone in the world can join if they’re serious about weight loss and disease reversal using diet and lifestyle. You can find out more about the program at http://Sapien.org You can also get the free Sapien Food guide there.

    Another thing we’ve got going is the Sapien Tribe. We have a growing community of people who are living this lifestyle and dominating life. I know that sounds pretty bro-ey, but it’s what is happening. People have gone from a life of mediocrity or even ill-health to being in top shape, reversing their chronic disease, having great body composition, and not getting sick anymore! Tribe members also get all the extras like the bonus episodes of this podcast, the extended show notes, the private members area, and special access and live Zoom calls with Dr. Gary and me. You can find that at http://sapien.org as well.

    You can also get the Nose to Tail meats at http://nosetotail.org where we ship grass finished, ethically and sustainably raised beef, buffalo, pork, and chicken to your door. It’s all raised in Texas and ships out each week to the 48 contiguous states. Our specialty products include ground beef with liver, heart, kidney, and spleen mixed in. I don’t know of anyone else getting all these organs mixed in like we do. I think it’s the best and tastiest way to eat the fresh organs to get the ultimate in nutrient dense, bioavailable nutrition. We also have high omega 3, low omega 6 pork and chicken. We feed them a special gluten free, non-GMO feed that makes their meat and fat very low in PUFAs. I can go on forever about how great this stuff is, but just check it out for yourself at http://nosetotail.org

    I can’t wait to share the new whole food products we’re developing that will be out soon. Follow @eatnosetotail on Instagram or Twitter for updates. We’ve got some exciting stuff coming. You can also follow me on any platform if you search for Food Lies. I’m putting out all kinds of info each week and we have some good discussions going on there. Youtube as well. A bunch of great videos to check out.

    So that’s all for now. Thanks for listening and sharing this show and any of the other content. Please give this podcast a review in the podcast app or on iTunes. Check out Sapien.org and NoseToTail.org and most importantly listen to this great info from the nutrition genius, Mary Ruddick!
