Mark Sisson and Brad Kearns discuss the long-awaited release of their new book, Keto For Life, a comprehensive owner's manual to pursue the ultimate goal of healthspan--living long and living awesome every step of the way. This discussion is also available in video format on YouTube. Enjoy a bit of everything in this free wheeling conversation. Mark reveals that he nearly refused the project since he was not walking his talk in his own life!

You'll learn that Living Awesome encompasses the Four Pillars of Longevity detailed in the book: Metabolic Flexibility, Movement and Physical Fitness, Mental Flexibility, and Rest & Recovery.

Rank #2: Keto: Introduction to Keto And How to Do It Right

Podcast cover
Read more

Host Brad Kearns starts from the beginning with a big picture presentation of the what, why, and how of the ketogenic diet. You’ll learn why its so important to health and longevity, including the benefits for disease protection, improved cognitive function, , reduced inflammation and oxidative stress (these represent the essence of disease and accelerated aging), and the rapid and efficient removal of excess body fat. Keto is the red-hot dietary trend of the day, but it’s important to understand how to do it correctly and avoid the very common backsliding and burnout that occurs from a rushed approach or ill-advised approach. Brad talks you through the multi-step process detailed in the Mark Sisson with Brad Kearns New York Times bestseller, The Keto Reset Diet. This show is deeply informative and illuminating, but always in plain talk so you can grasp the concepts with needing heavy prior knowledge. If you are thinking about keto, this show will give you the essential tools to succeed without the nonsense of the keto flu that some people describe as inevitable.

Rank #3: Keto: Choosing Carbs Wisely (especially kombucha and chocolate)

Podcast cover
Read more

Host Brad Kearns talks about carbs and keto, clearing up some misconceptions and focusing in on an assortment of food categories to help you strategize and stay aligned with ketogenic eating guidelines. First, we must recognize that keto is best promoted by fasting/starvation—this is our genetically programmed response. Keto is not about stuffing your face with fat throughout the day. When it comes to carbs, we can enjoy abundant vegetable intake, emphasizing above-ground, leafy green veggies and cruciferous vegetables. And while colorful fruits and starchy tuber vegetables have many nutritional benefits, we want to sideline these when doing strict keto stints. 

We also cover how to choose the highest quality dark chocolate, habituating to the highest possible cacao percentage. You’ll get inspired to make your own kombucha (all you need is a friend with a SCOBY, and some sweet black tea), and watch out for the overly-sugared store-bought kombucha. Other categories include non-dairy milks, nuts, seeds, and their derivative butters, and packaged snacks that have ‘paleo/keto’ designation on them

Rank #4: Dr. Paul Saladino And The Carnivore Diet With Mark Sisson

Podcast cover
Read more

Host Mark Sisson welcomes carnivore diet expert Dr. Paul Saladino for a wide-ranging conversation centered upon the exciting new carnivore diet movement. Paul is a psychiatrist and functional medicine physician who has become a leading authority and promoter of carnivore-style eating. Paul talks about his background of western medical training, his approach of practicing "root cause medicine," and his discovery of incredible results from carnivore in himself, his patients, and many enthusiasts. 

  Mark and Paul get deep into the science of how eating what we have always believed to be a healthy plant-based diet can actually result in nutrient deficiency (especially vegan and vegetarian), autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. Dr. Paul explains how coffee and tea can also deliver net negative results, especially in sensitive people. You will emerge with an excellent understanding of the premise behind carnivore beyond the knee-jerk reaction that this strategy is unfounded or even dangerous. Open your mind and learn about the radical concept that plant foods may not be necessary, and may even be harming your health.     YOUTUBE:  https://youtu.be/W_ARV4RN1aw

Rank #5: Keto: Sharon Brown – Benefits Of Bone Broth

Podcast cover
Read more

Host Brad Kearns talks to Sharon Brown, Founder and CEO of Bonafide Provisions, makers of the number one selling frozen bone broth in America. We will learn all about the amazing amino acids present in bone broth that support gut health, deliver a collagen boost for healthy skin and nails, and help rebuild broken down connective tissue. Sharon will detail how to make bone broth at home in the correct manner, how to discern what is quality and what is crap at the story, and how bone broth helped her child go from sickly and ADHD diagnosed to a live of robust health.

If you are eating a keto-aligned diet, you have narrowed your food options and consequently must be more vigilant to include the most nutrient dense food possible within keto guidelines. This will address the knee-jerk criticism against keto as the "bacon and butter diet" that raises health objections. As Dr. Cate Shanahan details in her bestselling book, Deep Nutrition, bone broth is one of the centerpieces of the ancestral diet that has been largely ignored and neglected in our modern diet.  This show will cover how to shop for quality products and how to make your own at home. Enjoy the show and learn more about Sharon at bonafideprovisions.com

Rank #6: Keto: Dr. Cate Shanahan: How to Become Cancer-Proof!

Podcast cover
Read more

Dr. Cate Shanahan, the author of Deep Nutrition and Food Rules, pulls no punches when discussing how our conventional view of screening and treating cancer could be ill-advised. Referencing the work of Dr. Thomas Seyfried, Cate explains that cancer is actually a metabolic disease, rather than a genetic disease. This implies that instead of aggressive chemo and radiation treatment to attack cancer at the genetic level, the dietary modification could be the most effective strategy. This aligns with Warburg Effect principle, which suggests cancer cells feed preferentially on glucose, at a rate greater than regular cells. The idea is that starving cancer cells of glucose with fasting and ketogenic eating patterns makes it possible to shrink tumors and heal. Cate tackles the big C question, our biggest fear: What would you do if you were diagnosed with cancer tomorrow? Cate says she would get to business with fasting and ketogenic eating, and head off to Turkey, yes Turkey!, to participate in cutting edge insulin therapy. While it might be unsettling to rethink the template strategy of cancer-fighting, Cate's commentary can help you reflect further about how your thoughts, beliefs, and food choices affect your overall health. Enjoy this discussion with one of the great leaders of the ancestral health movement, and be sure to read Deep Nutrition to learn the hows and whys about choosing the most nutritious foods that your genes expect for optimum health.

It starts with Brad's favorite recommendation to maintain the passion and competitive intensity throughout life and then being smart and strategic with your training decisions.

Originally from Zanesville, Ohio, Dr. Riser began his work in alternative medicine through his award-winning Undergraduate Thesis study on Bacteriophage Therapy of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) as a preferred treatment method over traditional antibiotics.

While attending graduate school, Dr. Riser’s passion for alternative medicine developed after the passing of his grandmother, mother, and father in a two-year span.  He watched as conventional medicine treatment with drug therapy and a lack of nutritional guidance continued time and time again to fail his family members and ultimately led to untimely deaths.  It was at this time that he redirected his efforts toward Functional Medicine education.

In 2017, Dr. Riser founded Functional Health Center of the Carolinas, a highly regarded Functional Medicine clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina. It has quickly become one of the most sought after “Chronic Disease Reversal” clinics in the region.

As the Clinic Director, the focus of Dr. Riser’s practice is primarily Functional Medicine treatment of Type II Diabetes, Thyroid Disorders, Cognitive Decline, and Autoimmune disease. Dr. Riser has made it a priority to help the Carolina region combat a devastatingly high incidence of chronic disease and obesity through Functional Medicine, Paleo, and nutraceutical interventions.

With just slight modifications to the wording and by being more specific, these resolutions can become more powerful, more effective, and more true to our nature and our actual desires.

‘Tis the season for consumption.

Cookies, cakes, and pies abound. Feasts happen on a regular basis. Candy is given and received as gifts. And there are parties immeasurable—at work, with family, with friends—where calorie-dense, rewarding food is handed out, like, well, candy. The holiday season is a practice in overeating, and it can be very hard to avoid. You may not want to even avoid it; there’s something to be said for letting loose now and again on special occasions, especially when holiday cheer is in the air.

But what happens to your body when you overeat? And what can you do about it?

Elle Russ chats with Dr. Erin Fall Haskell (“Dr. Erin”) about overcoming and dealing with trauma. Dr. Erin is the creator and host of Good Morning LaLa Land.  She has been featured on the cover of magazines, radio, and ‘as seen on’ NBC, CBS, FOX, and ABC. She is the author of Awakening: A 40-Day Guide to Unleashing Your Spiritual Powers, Life’s Purpose, and Manifesting Your Dreams! Her mission is to awaken a billion people globally to their divinity while teaching them how to reprogram their subconscious, align with their personal truth and universal laws, and create a daily spiritual practice.

Dr. Erin mentors people one-on-one on a body, mind, and spiritual level. She believes that when someone awakens, they naturally have a gift and message to bring to the world. After many years of working with a wide range of clients; from top celebrities to single mothers, her programs are now available to everyone. Dr. Erin believes that the route to happiness and fulfillment is not just knowing the truth, but living the truth!

“There are moments in life when something happens, life alters, and your entire perception transforms instantaneously.” For Dr. Erin, that moment was 22 years ago when she was holding her stillborn son in her arms, just after giving birth to him. “Tears were streaming down my face as I looked at his beautiful body and realized his body was still there, but he wasn’t. I realized he wasn’t his body; he is a spiritual being. One can conceptually understand that we are not these bodies, but I got it on an entirely different level, my entire world crumbled, delivering me to spiritual revelation.” This sent her on an intense spiritual quest traveling around the world, discovering truths, and learning how to live and embody the truths that had been revealed.

14 Scenarios When Fasting Might Be Your Best Approach

Podcast cover
Read more

There’s a ton of talk about intermittent fasting in the ancestral heath sphere for general health and wellness as well as weight loss, but little indication of specific applications for the practice. Anytime you attempt a “radical” health practice like not eating, it helps to have a good reason to do it. That will not only give you something to aim for, but it will ensure you actually have a physiological justification for your experiment. Never go in blind.

What are some of the specific scenarios and conditions where fasting makes the most sense?

8 Things We Can Learn From the Carnivore Movement

Podcast cover
Read more

A few years ago, I wrote a post describing all the things that avowed Primal eaters can learn from plant-based or even vegan dieters. Sure, we’re diametrically opposed on the role of animal foods in human health, but there are still relevant takeaways.

Carnivores are much closer to Primal eaters on the dietary spectrum, The Primal Blueprint posits that animal foods—meat, fish, fowl, shellfish, eggs, and dairy—represent the most nutrient-dense, most crucial component of the human diet. Carnivore takes that and runs with it, to its logical conclusion: Animal foods are so nutrient-dense and so important that we should eat them to the exclusion of everything else.

I don’t exactly agree, but I see where they’re coming from. And there’s a lot we can learn from the carnivore movement. I’ve got 8 takeaways today.

Host Brad Kearns gets deep into the world of ketone supplements with scientist Chris Irvin from Perfect Keto. Chris and Perfect Keto founder Dr. Anthony Gustin recently published a book called The Keto Answers Book, filled with 268 thoughtful answers to the most common questions about the ketogenic diet and ketone supplements. Chris talks about the good and the bad arising from the explosion in popularity of keto, and has an interesting take on the best use of ketone supplements. Chris mentions their effectiveness for times when you need enhanced brain function. You'll hear about possible reasons for lower than expected blood ketone readings and the surprising suggestion that you should not measure ketones first thing in the morning due to something called the "dawn effect," where you have naturally elevated glucose and low ketones upon awakening.
