Obesity is a complicated problem and the solution may lie in a multi-prong approach. We look at what the science tells us about obesity, how various properties of foods can impact consumption, discuss the Carbohydrate Insulin Hypothesis and understand how the brain and body responds to an obesogenic environment.


Stephan J. Guyenet, PhD is a former neuroscience and obesity researcher and author of the book The Hungry Brain: Outsmarting the Instincts That Make Us Overeat, which was named one of the best books of 2017 by Publishers Weekly. His research has been cited more than 2,000 times by his scientific peers. His writing and speaking focus on the brain circuits that regulate eating behavior and body fatness, and how we can work with them to sustainably manage our waistlines.

Heart disease is the number one killer in United States and with most major heart attacks happening in people with normal cholesterol(1), it's about time we figure out what exactly causes heart disease and troubleshoot the underlying issues. We may have been on a wild goose chase for the last few decades, further defended and propagated by documentaries and health associations, and it potentially costed us lives of millions of people globally.

Bio: Ivor Cummins BE(Chem) CEng MIEI completed a Chemical Engineering degree in 1990. He has since spent over 25 years in corporate technical leadership and management positions. Ivor’s particular specialty is leading teams in complex problem-solving scenarios. Several years ago Ivor encountered a complex technical challenge in his personal life. Receiving poor blood test results, he was unable to get solutions via the doctors consulted. He thus embarked on an intense period of biochemical research into the science of human metabolism. Within eight weeks he had resolved and optimized all of his blood test metrics. Also, he had shed 30lbs of bodyfat with relative ease. In the following years he continued his research on the many “root causes” of modern disease, from “cholesterol” through to insulin resistance. He has also given many public talks and chaired interviews with various health experts. These are available on his YouTube channel at: His blog other content is available at

Why are we becoming insulin resistant and obese? Why is the health and food industry failing? Where did this madness begin? And above all, what happens when you challenge the dietary advice that doesn't work?

Bio: Dr Gary Fettke is an Orthopaedic Surgeon practising in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. He has a major interest in the preventative medicine and encourages his patients to lose weight before undergoing surgery. Although his speciality is surgery, Gary believes it is much better to help people avoid surgery if at all possible by taking preventative measures, which often involve altering the diet.

In recent years Gary has focussed on the role of diet in the development of diabetes, obesity and cancer. He has been speaking out on the combined role of sugar, fructose, refined carbohydrates and polyunsaturated oils linking together to be behind inflammation and modern disease.

He has incurred the wrath of regulatory bodies for his stand on public health, but he and his wife, Belinda, remain active defending the benefits of low carb healthy fat living.

Knowing all about healthy diet and nutrition is one thing but how do you take all that you learn and apply it to yourself and your own family, especially when it comes to raising your children in a healthy way? This podcast talks about incorporating routines, training and a healthy diet into your family as a whole.

Bio: Danny and Maura Vega are Miami natives who now reside in Tampa, Florida. Danny was the starting runningback for his high school football team and led the county in rushing yards. He went on to receive his bachelor's degree from Columbia University in 2004, where he was a member of the football team. After college, he pursued his Master's of Science at the University of Florida, where he worked with the national championship men's basketball team, women's basketball, tennis and golf. He then went on to become the Strength and Conditioning coordinator for VCU basketball, helping the Rams win the 2007 conference championship.

Maura had a passion for dance since she was a young girl. She is classically trained in ballet, jazz, and contemporary. After high school she found herself struggling with her weight, and spent the next several years restricting food and even went as far as trying out a plant based diet for the sole purpose of "being skinny." A ketogenic lifestyle has not only freed her of her disordered eating, but she has also found relief from severe postpartum depression and anxiety.

These days, Maura and Danny can be found spending most of their time with their two boys. They have a unique way of thinking when it comes to children, and how to raise them. They unschool both of their boys who are also now following a ketogenic diet. Both boys have found relief from allergies and autoimmune issues with a ketogenic diet. They hope to inspire and change the way we see and treat children, and also how we feed them.

Bio: Dr. Carrie Diulus is one of just a handful of board certified female orthopedic spine surgeons in the United States. She practices “patient-centered” medicine rather than the traditional “disease-centered” model. She starts by identifying all of the factors that influence a patient’s health. This understanding is then combined with state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgical and medical care including complementary and nutritional approaches to develop an individualized program for each patient’s unique needs.

How do I lost weight on a Ketogenic Diet? Do I need to measure ketones or fast? The Ketogenic Diet has so many claims! It's time to draw the line between what is healthy and what's obsessive and potentially dangerous while using an evidence-based skepticism.   Bio: Tyler Cartwright has a fascination with learning, reading, and self-improvement as a person. It's truly a bit of an obsession for him - with a personal library which currently clocks in at just north of 2300 books! At his heaviest he weighed in at 505 lbs, and set out on a journey of self-discovery and leveraged his love of learning with his backgound in science to arrive at a ketogenic diet as a tool for his weight loss. After over a decade of eating a ketogenic diet, and having lost 295 pounds, he has helped to move the Ketogains community forward as one of the most successful communities of contextualized thought on the use of a ketogenic diet and the applications for fat loss, sports performance, and how to help people transform their lives.
