Fitness Confidential with Vinnie Tortorich

Episode 2212 - BEST OF: On this special edition of the Saturday show, we dusted off episode 256 (from April 2014) when Vinnie Tortorich and Anna Vocino speak to Dr. Tim Noakes and they discuss a wide variety of health topics, from bad studies and good info, low carb, Big Pharma, and more. https://vinnietortorich.com/2022/10/bad-studies-good-info-dr-tim-noakes-episode-2212 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS BAD STUDIES & GOOD INFO Vinnie and Anna start the show with a couple of different stories. (1:30) They both have stories regarding some thievery happening in their areas of Los Angeles. Anna then tells Vinnie about what she witnessed while at an audition. (10:20) Vinnie is still cancer free! A few shout-outs to some "superfans"! Dr. Tim Noakes joins Vinnie and Anna and they start by asking him about confusion in the headlines regarding health topics. (16:00) Many nutritional studies are only based on association, not controlled interventional trials. They also chat about why he's low carb and some of the things that he has discovered for himself. (20:00) Vinnie asks Tim about Harvey and Banting (from 1862)--who they are and why they are important in health history. (26:20) They also chat about what changed in the 1950s, Ancel Keys' studies, and dietary guidelines. Tim mentions the little-known fact about Ancel Keys near the end of his life. (31:30) The conversation then turns to the "China Study" and why it's a good example of bad information. (32:15) This leads to talking about cholesterol and saturated fats and why Total LDL is not a real indicator of heart attack risk. (34:00) They chat about the importance of getting a calcium score. As a result, they also discuss how blood sugar plays a part. They discuss a bit about the question: if we have all the conclusive studies, why aren't changes happening faster? (40:00) Big Pharma plays a huge part by wielding its influence. INSULIN RESISTANCE & SUGAR ADDICTION They then get into insulin resistance: what it is and how it works (or doesn't). (43:30) Diabetes, hypertension, and other illnesses all have insulin resistance in common. (48:00) Sugar addiction is a real thing. Also: why are dietitians resistance to change? They also discuss ketosis, athletic performance, and "sugar trickling." (57:55) The trio discusses dairy, how it may affect weight loss, and what daily vitamins are helpful. (1:03:05)  Anna and Vinnie wrap up the discussion with Tim, then conclude the show with a bit of music and a bunch of superfan shout-outs.

Episode Highlights [03:09] Professor Noakes’ Career Professor Noakes went to medical school before shifting to research and science.  He started writing the Lore of Running for the public, which is currently ongoing with its fifth revision.  Originally a supporter of the high-carbohydrate diet, he realised he was giving the wrong dietary advice after struggling with Type II Diabetes. He lost funding from his university due to this realisation but won the case in court using well-proven science. With his research, he now teaches the proper management of diabetes. [07:50] Against the Food Industry Professor Noakes lost funding from a company in the food industry after he stopped promoting their grain-based diet.  He was sued for his book, Waterlogged, because it went against the sports drink industry.  [12:30] The Pressure from the Academe  Academic mobbing is the pressure to quit your academic work. Professionals such as deans and professors went against Prof Noakes.  Professor Noakes chose research and science because of the toxic environment in the field of medicine. The academic and medical profession is brutal, with long work hours and debt. [15:39] Diet Guidelines Professor Noakes recommends eating based on what humans have evolved to eat. Historically, humans have hunted big animals and turned to agriculture for food. While reasonably healthy, vegetarian diets can be expensive and require highly refined food. He advises eating non-processed and animal-based food. [19:17] The Human’s Digestive Evolution The human diet used to be mainly animal produce. Carbohydrates were only eaten during shortages. It isn’t easy to adapt from an animal-based, high-fat diet to a high-grain diet in a short period.  Gorillas have certain digestive mechanisms that can break down carbohydrates into fat. Humanity’s evolution as hunters resulted in a shorter bowel that is ideal for eating animal produce. [23:47] On Long-Distance Running Running is not a sustainable activity to bring into older age. Orthopedic problems can develop, especially after decades. It is not an ideal long-term activity. [26:22] Weight Control Removing carbohydrates helped Professor Noakes control his weight. He also found amazing benefits from his biweekly CrossFit sessions complemented with running. Now, he has more muscle mass and better flexibility than before.  [30:52] Professor Noakes’ Writing Professor Noakes is rewriting the Lore of Running to debunk myths and misconceptions. He is also working on an article about eating before or after exercise. He recently discovered the reason why carbohydrates are necessary for exercise. Regardless of your diet, avoiding hypoglycemia during exercise is the main goal. [37:05] Preventing Cancer Through Diet The low-carb, high-fat diet is ideal for preventing cancer. Insulin resistance, which can develop from a long-term high-carb diet, underlies most cancers. [40:30] Busting Myths  The central government theory is true. Reduction of exercise performance to reduce lactate and glycogen is a myth. Measuring oxygen consumption and glycogen muscle storage is unimportant. His friend once subscribed to a high-carb diet before switching to low carbs. His running greatly improved. Dave Scott, a well-known athlete, has also seen improvements after changing his diet. [45:39] What to Drink When Running Homeostatic regulation allows you to determine if you need to drink more to keep normal sodium levels. Drinking too much water can cause hyponatremia, which is when your sodium levels drop, causing brain swelling and reduced brain blood flow. A genetic defect causing the oversecretion of hormones can cause you to drink too much. It is best for marathon runners to drink only when they feel thirsty. Dehydration is not a medical condition. Your body can maintain normal levels as long as you drink when needed. 7 Powerful Quotes [17:02] ‘The answer is we got to go back to eating what the Maoris were eating, or the Australian Aborigines. [T]hey were eating fish and other foods from the land.’ — Professor Tim Noakes  [21:34] ‘We’re designed to eat animal produce, which is digested in the small bowel. That's how we evolved, and that allowed us to get our hips to narrow. That allowed us to start running because our knees came closer together; we could run more effectively. And then we became bigger hunters. And that then helped us evolve further.’ — Professor Tim Noakes [26:07] ‘I do a lot of strength work and yoga and things like that to balance things out. I feel a ton healthier — day and night healthy. I can manage my weight much better. I was fatter when I was running the distances.’ — Lisa Tamati [28:26] ‘I do an hour or two twice a week, and it's 40 minutes really odd but really, really odd. Then I came to complement that with some running, but that's what I need. I've bulked up. I've put on five kilograms of muscle at the age of 72. I'm lifting weights that I could never even consider when I was younger.’ — Professor Tim Noakes [29:40] ‘I was having spasms 10 times a day. Then I started doing CrossFit and I worked my way up. Now it’s been years without a single spasm. I do not have back pain and I have a very, very strong core. And I work on the core and I maintain it because the back injury is still there but I don't have any issues.’ — Lisa Tamati [44:41] ‘He wrote to me about four years ago and says to me, “I've just read your book, and I changed my diet.” And he said, “I wish I'd been eating this diet all my life.”’— Professor Tim Noakes [49:28] ‘You don't need to be told when to drink. Your body will tell you when to drink. So you just drink to thirst, and that's absolutely what is the case. You drink to thirst, and you'll be fine.’ — Professor Tim Noakes About Professor Noakes Professor Tim Noakes is an author and researcher focusing on sports and exercise science. Alongside Morné du Plessis, he helped found the Sports Science Institute of South Africa. There, they expanded the limits of research for sports science and encouraged interest in the field.  Professor Noakes’ book, Lore of Running, is often considered the bible of running. His other book, Waterlogged, talks about his research on exercise-associated hyponatremia. Professor Noakes has published over 750 scientific books and articles and has won multiple awards for his contributions to sports science.  Learn more about Professor Tim Noakes by visiting The Noakes Foundation.

Episode 49: Prof. Tim Noakes

Food Junkies Podcast

Dr. Tim Noakes is a South African scientist and an emeritus professor in the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University of Cape Town. He is also a member of the National Research Foundation (South Africa), which lists him as one of their highest-rated members. He has run more than 70 marathons and ultramarathons and is the author of several books on exercise and diet. He is known for his work in sports science and for his support of a low-carbohydrate, high-fat (LCHF) diet, as set out in his books The Real Meal Revolution and Lore of Nutrition: Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs. Noakes is an advocate of a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet, often referred to in South Africa as the "Noakes" or "Banting" diet. Noakes has characterized mainstream dietary advice as "genocide". In February 2014 a registered dietician complained to the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) that Noakes tweeted to a mother that she should wean her baby onto low-carbohydrate, high-fat foods, which he described as real foods. The HPCSA held a hearing about the allegation against Noakes over the next few years. Controversially, on 28 October 2016, the HPSCA incorrectly released a statement announcing that Noakes had been found guilty of misconduct. In a second press release issued over three hours later, the HPSCA apologized for the mistake. Noakes was cleared of misconduct in April 2017. The HPSCA lost its appeal in June 2018. Noakes co-wrote the 2017 book Lore of Nutrition with journalist Marika Sboros. In it, Noakes describes his Damascene conversion to low-carbohydrate dieting, explores how the lipid hypothesis is the "biggest mistake in modern medicine" and details his struggles with the medical establishment. Noakes has written several books detailing his research in sports science and nutrition. A selected bibliography is given below. Lore of Running (1986) Running Injuries: How to Prevent and Overcome Them (1990) Bob Woolmer's Art and Science of Cricket (2008) Challenging Beliefs: Memoirs of a Career (2012) Waterlogged: The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports (2012) The Real Meal Revolution (2014) Raising Superheroes (2015) Lore of Nutrition: Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs, with Marika Sboros (2017) Real Food On Trial: How the diet dictators tried to destroy a top scientist, with Marika Sboros (2019) Today's Episode Dr. Noakes shares his Personal/Professional Story We talk about the Banting Diet Changing one person, one meal at a time Why we need to work on changing doctors Dr. Noakes discusses his legal battle We discuss how research can be biased and manipulated Food Addiction as a legitimate diagnosis How to find accurate information Nutritional science and why it needs to change He answers our question about Volume addiction Signature Question FOLLOW DR.
