WTF #120 | Amanda Radke - Eat Beef Save The Planet

Episode #120 Today I have on an amazing guest that the carnivore community will love! Amanda Radke is a fifth generation rancher from Mitchell, S.D., who has dedicated her career to serving as a voice for the nation’s beef producers. She recently received attention from the media when her article response to Ellen DeGeneres’ post “Be neat. Eat less meat.” went viral with more than 10,000 shares on Facebook. Amanda explains that today’s consumer wants to know more about where their food comes from, but they aren’t getting their information from farmers and ranchers; they are getting their information from the loud voices of animal welfare activists, environmentalist zealots, biased media reporters, healthcare practitioners with plant-based agendas and celebrity influencers. As a professional in the cattle industry, Amanda is doing everything it takes to properly educate people and show consumers the other side of the story.  Enjoy The Show! Takeaways Every diet has some sort of animal death and suffering whether you’re eating steaks or eating salads. In this episode of What The Fat, Amanda and I dive deep into the misconceptions surrounding the beef industry.

#97 - Dr. Ryan Lowery | My Thoughts On Fasting

Episode #97 Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding fasting, so I wanted to share my thoughts. Whether you're fasting to get into a deeper state of ketosis, experience Autophagy, for spiritual reasons, or to build up resiliency to food, there’s no right or wrong way to fast. It is hard to define what constitutes a fast because it is completely dependent on your end goal. Fasting has many great benefits and at the end of the day its about context and what you are trying to accomplish.    Enjoy the show! Takeaways Does coffee break a fast? Exogenous ketones? Sweeteners? Water? How long should I fast? What time of day?  Fasting can be hard to define and there is no one answer to these questions. At the end of the day it comes down to what is your goal and what are you trying to accomplish by fasting. In this episode on What The Fat, I address some of the most common questions I get asked about fasting and how to avoid some of the most common pitfalls.

Tweetables “It all comes back to - what is the goal?” “One of the biggest benefits of fasting is understanding that food does not control me” “It’s about context and the intent about what you are trying to accomplish with the fast” “Am I just wanting something?

#86 - Tom Naughton | If I'd Known This My Whole Life Would've Been Different

Episode #86 Tom Naughton believes “you’ve been fed a load of bologna.” The Fat Head director began filming his movie as a comedic response to the national phenomenon Supersize Me, but soon realized how everything he thought he knew about nutrition was wrong. Extensive research and interviews with medical professionals inspired Tom to change his way of living. He and his kids moved out of L.A. and started a sustainable farm to supply their new low-carb way of life. Today on What The Fat, Dr. Ryan Lowery interviews Tom on his health-journey, the inspiration behind Fat Head, and his latest piece of work: Fat Head Kids. Enjoy the show! Takeaways There is no one-size-fits-all diet, but we do know the current U.S. government low-fat diet recommendation is wildly misleading. Research paper after research paper have proven that high-fat diets are not linked to obesity or heart disease; however, these ideas are still taught to many Americans. It is this lack of true knowledge on diet and health that has lead to the overconsumption of sugar and increased incidence of obesity and obesity-related illnesses.

We aim to keep them [the children] on a good diet most of the time and it’s working.” “I think I’ve given them the tools to make the smart decisions and they are kids. They aren’t always going to make the smart decision, but heck I’m a 60-year-old-man and I don’t always make the smart decision.” “Once you know what certain foods do to you, it becomes increasingly difficult to make the bad decision and do it on purpose, because you know what you’re doing to yourself.” “I don’t want the U.S. government or any other organization declaring here is the one diet for everyone, because there’s no such thing as the one diet that’s correct for everyone.” “If you can’t explain this to a 6th-grader, you don’t really know it.” If you like today’s episode, subscribe on Apple Podcasts at What The Fat and leave us a 5-star, positive review.

Episode #85 Are you someone who uses the excuse of “I don’t have time”? If so, listen to this episode now and shift your perspective.

Everyone has 24 hours in a day. It is what you allocate those hours to that become a priority.” “Stop yourself and letting others from using the excuse of I don’t have time.

Just do not waste any more time. People think we have so much time and we don’t… we can die” “Never be afraid to give” “Write yourself a eulogy. See what you think people would say about you right now. What do you want them to say about you? Then start from there and say, ‘how do I create that.’” “You’ve got to learn everyday… learn about the things you are passionate about every day.

#63 - Victoria Field | From Optimizing Physique to Optimizing Health

Happy Halloween WTF fans! As a self-proclaimed “carb-monster”, IFBB pro-bodybuilder Victoria Field probably would have never imagined the day she was an advocate for the low-carb lifestyle. However, when her dog began experiencing seizures, she found the key to not only saving her beloved pet but also transforming her own health. Now, she travels the world and educates millions on the science-backed evidence supporting the ketogenic diet. In this episode of What the Fat, Dr. Ryan Lowery interviews Victoria Field on her journey and her passion for health and fitness, while gaining insight on the revolution, future, and pitfalls of the ketogenic industry. Enjoy the show! Takeaways The love and concern for Victoria Field’s dog may have led her to keto, but it’s the remarkable health benefits that have kept her a part of this community. It’s that kind of passion that has led to the growth of the ketogenic world and education of thousands. However, you don’t have to be a pro-bodybuilder or have an epileptic dog to understand and promote the health effects of the ketogenic diet on not only humans but pets as well.

It’s going to take time for your body to adapt” “It’s not just a weight loss fad. It’s something that’s been around for 100 years… allowing us to build an accurate evidence-based conversation how it might actually be able to help not just epileptic patients, but cancer, diabetes, ALS and all of these other things that plague us as a society today and really start to bring to light the power of nutrition” “Now more than ever people are starting to realize: I need to be my own advocate. “
