Kamal Ravikant On Why Self-Love Is Everything
I've got nothing but love for stories of personal metamorphosis, perhaps the most predominant theme of this show.The underdog everyman meets unforeseen obstacles. Brought to his knees, he's compelled to seek deep within. Meeting fate, strength is somehow found in a mystical power greater than himself. He leverages it to evolve into something greater and more authentic. Emerging self-actualized, he then shares his newfound strength, wisdom and experience for the benefit of others.We call it the hero’s journey.Archetypal and totemic, it’s a most powerful narrative that unites, connecting withsomething indelible and universal within us all.Over the years, I’ve hosted many flavors of physical triumph. From Olympic medalists to arctic explorers, I celebrate the arc of the athletic warrior.But life’s greatest passage isn’t physical. It’s not free-soloing El Capitan, crossing Antarctica, or running ultramarathons in Patagonia.Our most challenging voyage is learning how to love oursel...

Rick Johnson, M.D.: Fructose—The common link in high blood pressure, insulin resistance, T2D, & obesity?
In this episode, Rick Johnson, Professor of Nephrology at the University of Colorado, explains how his research into the causes of blood pressure resulted in a change of research direction to focus more on how fructose has such profound metabolic effects. Rick discusses the relationship between salt and high blood pressure, provides a masterclass into uric acid, and expertly reveals the mechanisms and pathways by which sugar (specifically fructose) can profoundly impact metabolic health. From there, he explains how he applies this information to real life patients, as well as touches on some of the most promising ideas around pharmacotherapy that are being developed in response to the epidemics of fatty liver, insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity.

Lady Gaga also shares her greatest spiritual awakening. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Paul Grewal, M.D.: Treating metabolic disease and strategies for long-term health
In this episode, Paul Grewal, internal medicine physician and co-author of Genius Foods, discusses what has got him so focused on lifestyle changes for metabolic health which was partly brought on by his own experience of losing almost 100 pounds at two points in his life. Paul and Peter discuss how the results from a NuSI-funded study has impacted their feelings about the supposed “metabolic advantage” of a low-carb diet. Paul then makes the case for what he calls the “active poisoning” of the American food supply, defines his five phenotypes of obesity manifestation, as well as lays out his nutritional and training approach with his patients (as well as himself personally). Overall, this discussion is a treasure trove of topics from endocrinology, insulin resistance, caloric restriction, fasting, exercise, causes of obesity, LDL and heart disease, and much more.

Can a low-carb diet cause waking up in the middle of the night?
Question: "I keep waking up in the middle of the night and stay awake for hours. Would low carb make it worse?" It definitely could. Your brain will consume 120 grams of carbohydrate every day, just your brain. There's got to be another 30 grams or so that would be used no matter what obligately by red blood cells, certain cells in the testes, the kidney, and the lens of the eye. Then the rest of your body — if you're eating not a ketogenic diet, the rest of your body is not really trying to burn fat, so it's going to burn through carbohydrate. Your liver stores about 90 grams of carbohydrate to be able to stabilize your blood sugar between meals, and overnight is the biggest time where it has to do that because overnight is the longest period of time that you go without meals. If you add that up, you're looking at like 250 grams of carbohydrate a day — and remember we haven't gotten to high-intensity exercise yet. Now, if you go on a ketogenic diet, what happens? Well, your brain...
The Carnivore Debate Part 2 | Mastering Nutrition #70
In part 2 of The Carnivore Debate, we cover the philosophy of the carnivore diet and the potential pitfalls of carnivore and keto. The research that Dr. Saladino and I discussed with each other before this debate is listed in the show notes -- there are five pages of references! Here’s what we debated: What exactly is a carnivore diet? Is a 90% meat diet a carnivore diet, a carnivore diet you cheat on, a carnivore-ish diet, or just a meat-heavy omnivorous diet? And why definitions absolutely matter. Is the carnivore diet ancestral? What can we learn from present-day hunter-gatherers, the archeological record, and our evolutionary history as revealed by our genes? Who is the carnivore diet for? To what extent do carnivore and keto overlap? What are the benefits of keto and how broadly applicable are they? What are the potential harms of keto? In particular: acid-base balance thyroid, stress, and sex hormones oxidative stress and glycation sports performance We agree we need to cycle...

The community revolted. 1. Calcium [14:05] Erica says Hi Robb! I first want to say thank you so much for the wealth of knowledge you share. Your book,The Paleo Solution, helped me get off Enbrel which I was taking for 13 years for Rheumatoid Arthritis. I’ve been medication and symptom free for a year just by following a Paleo/keto diet and I don’t ever plan on going back to my old life of processed foods, joint pain, and weekly injections of Enbrel. However, I am concerned about my calcium intake. Dairy and beans flare up my arthritis symptoms and I don’t digest leafy greens well at all. I know sardines are a good source of calcium, but I just can’t stomach them. (Seriously, my husband is not even allowed to kiss me after he has eaten sardines )Do you have any suggestions of ways I can get calcium in my diet? I’ve heard bone meal is a good source but I don’t know exactly how to add that to my diet in an appealing way and I’m not finding much on the internet. Thank you so much for your time! 2. Coconut/Avocado Oil Potato Chips [17:18] Gordon says: You have mentioned Potato chips made with avocado/coconut oil but never really gave a thumbs up or down as too if these chips are ok to have ( for me everyday, i have a hard time with anything besides meat and rice). Am i plowing too many calories/carbs down? Any thoughts? 56 yr old male....workout 2/3 times a week ...physical job but recently put on weight in my midsection ...i eat about 4/5 bags a week... All around good guy and overworked father 3. Booze, Keto and Gut Health [20:21] Matt says: Any chance you can devote some time on the show to discuss alcohol? I am amazed at how little information is available as to it's effect on keto, weight loss, and muscle gain. Here's an example. My wife and I split a bottle of wine every night, start it with dinner and finish it off in the next few hours. The effect of this on sleep is a whole different topic :) .... what is the wine doing to my ketogenic state and ability to lose weight? Is the outcome different if it's two shots of tequila? The wine we drink is always dry (no residual sugar present) Last question. I'm a wine-maker and have always wondered about the effect of the preservative that I use in wine. Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) is added to wine immediately after fermentation is complete. I continually maintain a ratio of 100-150ppm (legal limit is 350ppm) until bottling to prevent bad stuff from growing.
