Episodes

  • Today’s episode features Mark Schatzker who just released his new book: The End of Craving. Back on episode 69, we discussed another one of his amazing books: The Dorito Effect. While many people are arguing about the calories or macronutrients in diets, Mark focuses on the experience of eating – the enjoyment and flavor of food. This episode is packed with mind-blowing bits of information on obesity, cravings, weight loss, brain science, and the history of our food system. Mark Schatzker is the author of three books: Steak, The Dorito Effect, and The End of Craving. A former feature writer for Conde Nast Traveler, his work has been published in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Best American Travel Writing and Annual Review of Psychology. He is the writer in residence at the Modern Diet and Physiology Research Center, which is based at Yale University. He lives in Toronto.

  • Today’s guest is Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who is the creator of the GAPS diet. The GAPS diet aims to solve an array of health conditions and chronic diseases by healing the gut. She has helped millions of people through her GAPS nutritional protocols and she shares a lot of her wisdom with us in this jam-packed episode! We discuss the gut-brain connection, processed foods, glyphosate, children’s diets, modern dairy, and much more!

    Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride holds a degree in Medicine and Postgraduate degrees in both Neurology and Human Nutrition. In her clinic in Cambridge she specialized in nutrition for children and adults with behavioral and learning disabilities, and adults with digestive and immune system disorders.

    Dr. Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998. As a parent of a child diagnosed with learning disabilities, she was acutely aware of the difficulties facing other parents like her, and she has devoted much of her time to helping these families. She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults to overcome their disabilities, and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field.

    She believes that the link between learning disabilities, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute, and the results of her work have supported her position on this subject. In her clinic, parents discuss all aspects of their child’s condition, confident in the knowledge that they are not only talking to a professional but to a parent who has lived their experience. Her deep understanding of the challenges they face puts her advice in a class of its own.

  • In this episode, I sat down with Kate Deering and Dr. Jamie Seeman for a fun discussion on nutrition and our metabolism. This was a great, civilized conversation between two people who have different approaches to nutrition. They both agree on a lot, including the importance of eating real foods, especially animal products, and avoiding highly processed foods like seed oils. They both have a great deal of experience in the department of women’s health and the effects of lifestyle on hormonal health.

    Kate Deering is a respected personal trainer and holistic nutritional, exercise, and lifestyle coach. With more than 20 years experience in the health and fitness industry, she prides herself on her out-of-the-box methods that support metabolic health and improve health and body function. Kate has committed her life to finding the answers to optimal health, a high metabolism, and true happiness. Her own journey to health and happiness became the foundation of her teachings and helped her understand why health is not established with dieting and over-exercising but with self-love and an increase in cellular metabolism—usually achieved with eating more and working out less.

    She is the author of the book: How to heal your metabolism and on instagram @katedeeringfitness

  • Bobby leads development and communications for the Savory Institute - a global non-profit facilitating the large-scale regeneration of the world’s grasslands to address the root cause of food, water, and climate security. Since 2009, the Savory Institute has influenced management on over 39 million acres of desertifying grassland through its global network of 50 regional Hubs that train and equip farmers, ranchers, and pastoralist communities to utilize the land-regenerating potential of Holistic Management within their cultural and ecological context.

    Savory’s new Land to Market program and Ecological Outcome Verification protocol connect verified regenerative supply to philosophically-aligned industries, bringing awareness and accessibility to products whose ecological footprint are a net positive for the planet.

  • Hey friends, thanks for tuning into Peak Human. I’m Brian Sanders, the creator of the much-anticipated Food Lies film. Things are going well with the post production so thank you for your continued support on Indiegogo and your patience. My guest today is Dr. Stephanie Seneff who has been studying the effects of glyphosate for almost 10 years now. She has put together TONS of science about why it’s bad for you and the environment, even though it’s marketed as safe. Of course Monsanto has led you and regulators to believe this. The tricky part here is that it supposedly doesn’t affect human cells, but it does affect all the billions of bacteria in your microbiome and the soil biome. She’ll get into all the details in this episode so listen on, my friend!

    Stephanie Seneff, PhD is a senior research scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. Her new book, Toxic Legacy, explores the harmful effects of the herbicide glyphosate on our health and the environment. Her book is backed by shocking evidence that points the finger at glyphosate as being responsible for many debilitating chronic diseases. While at MIT, she received four degrees: a bachelor's degree in biophysics as well as a M.S., E.E, and a PhD in electrical engineering and computer science. She has also written dozens of peer-reviewed papers on the effects of drugs, nutritional deficiencies, toxic chemicals, and diet on our health.

  • We actually are filming a bit more for the Food Lies documentary in a few weeks at a great ranch in Oklahoma. I can’t stress enough the lengths we are going to to make this the absolute best film possible. We need a mic-dropper, jaw-dropper, kale shake dropping film. ANything less won’t work. It won’t reach the mainstream. It won’t reach Joe Cheeto out in Ohio. It won’t reach the vegan in the coffee shop with the soy latte in Santa Monica.

    It won’t reach the hilarious jokesters at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health with their comical EAT Lancet funded diet for planetary health with more added sugar and 3x the seed oils than meat. Well it probably will never reach those bought and paid for fake scientists anyway. But we are going to make it that good where someone there might watch it and realize they’re living a lie and will quit their Kellogg’s and Coca-cola funded position.

  • Hello, everyone! Thanks for sharing this podcast and giving it a review on the podcast app or itunes. I’m Brian Sanders and I’ll encourage you to also work your way back and listen to all these episodes of Peak Human or start back at episode 1. I’d additionally encourage you to check out http://NoseToTail.org to check out our grass finished meats, tallow-based body care products, and more.

    Today I’m talking to Dr. Pran Yoganathan who is a Gastroenterologist and Gastrointestinal endoscopist based in Sydney. He aims to empower his patients to embark on a journey of self-healing using the philosophy of “let food be thy medicine”.

    Dr. Pran has a special interest in conditions such as Gastro-oesophageal Reflux (GORD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and abdominal bloating. He takes a very thorough approach to resolve these issues using dietary manipulation In conjunction with an accredited highly qualified dietician rather than resorting to long-term medications.

    We talk about many of the main chronic diseases we face today on the worldwide scale and how gut health and your diet contribute to these. Anyone with a stomach and/or who eats food should find interest in this episode. Hopefully both. We talk about animal vs. plant based diets, meat and cancer, how the human gut evolved, the necessity (or lack thereof) of fiber, protein amount, meal timing, GERD and heartburn, gout, personal fat threshold, height of populations in relation to their diet, and much more.

    You’ll like this episode if you’re a fan of meat. You’ll also like the aforementioned http://NoseToTail.org if you like meat and hopefully you enjoyed this silky smooth transition into some brief words about my company. This is how I have turned down all advertisers to this podcast. I’d rather steer clear of even the possibility of “strings attached” as they say. The one foundational belief I have in health and nutrition is around the ethical and sustainable production of animal foods and the inclusion of these in your diet. I work with many great producers here in the United States to produce and ship top quality food and body care products straight to you with no middle man. You can find all of our offerings at http://NoseToTail.org I’ll make a deal with you so I don’t bore listeners who already know about them. I’ll get straight to the episode if you promise to just check out the site for 2 minutes. You will? OK thanks, just hit the pause button and we’ll get straight into this episode with Dr. Pran Yoganathan.

  • Welcome back, friends! I’m Brian Sanders and this is the Peak Human podcast. I’m also the owner of NoseToTail.org where you can get all kinds of properly raised meats and the creator of the Food Lies film. We continue to work on the film daily and are just as desperate to finish it and get out to the world as you are. I know it’s taking longer than expected, but we are making something truly special and there are a lot of factors we’re dealing with. It will be worth it, trust me.

    This episode today is very special and a long time in the making. I got the top 2 audience favorites on one podcast. This nutrition stuff is so complex, it’s never enough to get one side of the story so I thought I could at least get 2. I try to stay out of giving my opinions in this one. Perhaps 3 would be a crowd. We talk about so many interesting topics such as the carbohydrate-insulin model of obesity, the alternatives to this. The personal fat threshold, the insulin model of disease which is separate from how one becomes overweight. Satiety and how it fits into this. The processing of foods and how it plays in. Basal insulin vs. bolus. THe satiety vs. calorie theory.

    Also the big PUFA debate - are they as bad as they’re made out to be? I think they are, but these 2 don’t seem to think there’s anything uniquely problematic with them other than they supply empty calories and we eat way too much of them. So they do think you should cut them out. I try to not interject much. I’m not trying to insert myself too much into these discussions. I have all kinds of guests on with differing opinions to expose people to all the angles of this complex nutrition world. I think something particularly with these guys and PUFAs, especially omega 6, is that they haven’t spent the time to really dig into these details enough. They have busy lives and are focused on other areas of health. Just an idea.

    Really we’re looking at the mystery of what goes on with food we eat and it's role in disease and/or obesity (which are independent of each other). Everyone should be interested in this to some extent. Maybe not to the level of a 90 minute podcast into some of the small details, but these are important questions that need to be answered.

    Dr. Ted Naiman is a board-certified Family Medicine physician in the department of Primary Care at a leading major medical center in Seattle. His research and medical practice are focused on the practical implementation of diet and exercise for health optimization. He has an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering and utilizes engineering principles when dealing with complex systems such as human health and nutrition.

    Dr. Ben Bikman is a researcher and professor specializing in metabolic function, insulin resistance, and the drivers of metabolic disorders. He has a PhD in bioenergetics, he did a postdoctoral fellowship with the Duke National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders, and he’s currently exploring the contrasting roles of insulin and ketones as key drivers of metabolic function.

  • Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Peak HUman podcast, I’m Brian Sanders and I hope everyone is doing well and eating a Sapien diet and living that Sapien lifestyle. I guess I’ll clarify what that is. Many people are already doing it without realizing it - I’m just trying to give it a name. It’s really just what seems to be the natural human diet. It’s a framework and isn’t the same for everyone and changes based on many factors such as where you live to where you are in your life or health journey. It’s based on whole foods, ancestral principles and food preparation techniques. It focuses on the best, most bioavailable, nutrient dense nutrition which is from animal foods. It incorporates the least toxic plant foods. It’s not carnivore, keto, paleo, or Whole 30 but has elements of these. I hate to have labels but none of the other dietary labels fit what I believe is a pretty basic framework for human nutrition. The lifestyle component is big as well and includes all the natural ways humans have always stayed healhty like getting outdoors and adequate sun, sleep, a form of movement, and so on.

    This is such a cool episode because Dr. Van Vliet’s research is a brilliant intersection of 2 topics that should be near and dear to the hearts of everyone listening - how animals are raised affects the nutrient profile of the meat and how this in turn affects human health. He uses cutting edge science to go beyond the 3 macros, or 13 vitamins & minerals listed on nutrition labels, to up to 70,000 secondary compounds found in food. He also is working on a much-anticipated study (maybe only to me and those listening) which is randomized controlled and looks at red meat in the context of a healthy diet! How cool is that! This is what we’ve all wanted for so long. Compare eating red meat in the context of a whole foods diet compared to eating it with a bunch of processed foods that would be thought of as a Standard American Diet.

    Get ready to meet your new best friend in the nutrition research field. I’m so glad Dr. Van Vliet is doing this research and that he spent a solid 90 minutes with me exploring much of it. Get ready for a good one!

    Dr. Stephan van Vliet is a human nutrition scientist at the Duke School of Medicine. Dr. van Vliet earned his PhD in Kinesiology and Community Health as an ESPEN Fellow from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received post-doctoral training at the Center for Human Nutrition in the Washington University in St Louis School of Medicine. Dr. van Vliet also holds a Masters in Nutrition Science.
