The Long Forgotten Vitamin K2 (Ep. 10)

Have you ever heard of Vitamin K2? It may be one of the most important vitamins for your development of a healthy body. Unfortunately in the recent past, fat has been demonized. That means everything that comes along with the fat has been rid of in our society. One of those things is Vitamin K2, a fat soluble vitamin. It was first discovered as "Activator X" by Dr. Weston A. Price in the early 20th century. It helps build and maintain proper bone, teeth and heart structure. Without Vitamin K2, you are not able to deposit calcium where it needs to go. Your bones start to deteriorate, and your body will deposit that calcium elsewhere, like your arteries. It is essential that you get proper amounts of this vitamin. You can mainly get it from grass-fed animal products. Grass-fed butter is my favorite, but you can find it in things like beef and cheese. Please take note that the animal had to have been grass-fed for it to have Vitamin K2. Otherwise, you can gain the necessary amounts thr...

Tips, Foods and Tools for Keto (Ep. 9)

Can’t See the Forest for the Trees (Ep. 8)

It seems like there is always some sort of objection to the ketogenic diet. Whether it's heart disease or kidney failure, there is always some fear making way into the minds of people looking to start the diet. While you may not have heard of these objections before, they are bound to come up at some point or another.You should be prepared to understand why the diet is not dangerous.We go over 3 of them in the show: heart disease, thyroid scares, and kidney concerns. Follow each link to our articles (with tons of research references) to learn more about each situation. Heart disease is not a disease of cholesterol. If it was, then we would see problems all over the vascular system - not just in the tiny space of the coronary arteries. Don't be worried that your cholesterol goes up. You will have a healthier heart than most. Your thyroid function will go down. But is that a bad thing? Does that mean your thyroid is hurt? Or maybe it means your body is more efficient with less thyroid...

Cholesterol’s Court Case (Ep. 7)

Cholesterol - a mere bystander and good Samaritan - has been wrongly accused of a crime. It is our job to prove him innocent because, after all, he is innocent. It is time to bring the true offender to trial and see how the evidence stacks up. Cholesterol is not the root problem anymore than a bad grade is the root problem of a failing student. Rather, it is the result of having a deep issue. It is the effects of that deep issue that we see and love to blame. Unfortunately, we have used that reasoning for too long, and it has cost millions of people their health. Cholesterol is there to help soothe your problems, but it gets caught up in other problematic process because of things like oxidation and inflammation. Those are the real issues at hand that we should tackle. As always, subscribe to our show on iTunes and leave us a 5-star review if you like what you heard!

Beware of Fructose (Ep. 6)

What is the thing about sugar that makes it so bad? As you can guess from the title, it is fructose. This simple sugar plays a major role in metabolic disease and addiction. We go over what fructose is, why it is so addictive, why it leads to metabolic instability, and what to do moving forward. If I had to sum everything up into a single sentence, it would be this. Stay away from fructose, and especially keep it from your kids. The kids are the only shot we have at rooting this out of our society. We, as adults, have already become addicted to sugar. We fully accept and embrace it in our society. But the kids haven't experienced that yet. They still have hope, and I truly believe that is how we will get rid of this nasty substance. As Max Planck said, "A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."

Food Addiction & Weight Loss (Ep. 5)

Food is tricky. It's an absolute necessity for our survival, but it can also be the very thing that causes our disease. Unfortunately it also has addictive properties. I know firsthand the kinds of struggles that come about. The refined carbohydrates in our diet cause hormone releasing that resemble neurological pathways fired during drug addiction. Although many people like to pretend this is not a real issue, it is. Food addiction is very real, just like addiction to nicotine is very real. How do we expect to help people with their weight problems or metabolic diseases if we can't acknowledge the struggle as that similar to beating a drug addiction? It makes living a ketogenic life somewhat a nightmare. Thus, it is so important to lay off those kinds of food. Replace those starchy and addictive foods with other kinds that are just as delicious - anything containing whole and natural fats. You don't need to sacrifice taste for health. You just need to stay away from the bad food lo...

The Tricks of Polyunsaturated Fat (Ep. 4)

Polyunsaturated fats have become popular in recent times. Why is that? Large company marketing tricking the world into believing they are better for you. They are supposedly "heart healthy" because they lower cholesterol. Ancel Keys played a key role in the country-wide scare of saturated fats. One category of polyunsaturated fats that is especially troubling is "vegetable oils." They are not really vegetable oils. They are seed oils that require a lot of processing to make. They use that term because it sounds healthier - but I assure you they are not healthier. You should avoid them to the best of your ability. They have a high ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats, which causes inflammation and leads to other health problems. They also form into harmful oxidation products because of their high reactivity. Vegetable oils break down both while your cooking and while they are in your body. Read more about the problems of vegetable oils in addition to this podcast by following the link to...

The Many Faces of Insulin (Ep. 3)

How does insulin play a part in the ketogenic diet? It is actually front and center into allowing your body to go into ketogenesis. Most people think eating fat gets you into ketosis. That is only partially true. The counterpart to that idea is that you need to keep your insulin down. So a high fat diet is not enough - it also needs to be low carb. It is the "low carb" aspect that allows you to generate ketones. Insulin is a hormone in your body used to get glucose into cells. It is also the hormone responsible for storing that glucose when your cells don't want it. It stores the glucose as glycogen in muscles and the liver. When those stores get full, insulin then converts the glucose into fat for further storage. Thus insulin is the energy storage hormone. If we want to go into ketogenesis, then we need to make sure insulin is not around to store our energy. Rather, we want to use up that energy. That's what ketones are. They come about when your body cannot store energy and has t...

The Story of Ketosis (Ep. 2)

There is a lot of hype over "ketosis." Well, what is it exactly? How do we induce it with diet? Those are the questions we hope to answer today. The story of ketosis is both beautiful and sad at the same time. It has been a part of human existence from the beginning. It has saved us from certain death and extinction. But in recent years it has been given a bad rep because of its close association to "ketoacidosis." Nutritional ketosis is good and entirely different from ketoacidosis. Ketosis is an entirely different metabolic state - one that optimizes your health. What is ketosis? It is a metabolic state where you burn fat for energy. But you need to burn that fat in absence of insulin in order to fully induce the ketogenic state. Acetoacetate, acetone, and betahydroxybutyrate are the 3 ketone bodies that your body will use for energy when that happens. These replace glucose as your energy sources. How do you enter ketosis? You need to have little insulin around. That can come from...
