Rank #1: The Application of Intermittent Fasting in Medicine ft. Jason Fung || Episode 61

Podcast cover
Read more

Intermittent fasting activates many biological pathways in the human body, namely autophagy, ketosis, and cellular repair. These effects could be just what many patients need to reverse diabetes and overcome obesity, and forward-thinking doctors have taken note.

One such doctor is Dr. Jason Fung, who is a pioneer of intermittent fasting in the clinical setting. He returns to the program after first appearing 2 years ago, and we both agree that we have seen the practice soar to popularity, in both culture and medicine, during that time. 

We discuss the similarities of the end goals of intermittent fasting and the ketogenic diet, the hacks one can use during a fast and when they should use them, and how fasting can be the cure for the underlying root cause of Type 2 diabetes.

Rank #3: #152 - Eat More Fat? Eat Less Carbs? The Priority is PROTEIN (P:E Diet) · Dr. Ted Naiman

Podcast cover
Read more

With over 100,000 patient interactions and two decades of experience as a board-certified Family Medicine physician, Dr. Ted Naiman continues to accumulate a wide spectrum of knowledge regarding nutrition, fitness, and the keys to optimal human health.

Most recently, Dr. Naiman collated his work into his book: 'The P:E Diet'. He makes it clear that he does not follow specific diet dogma (keto, paleo, carnivore, vegan, etc), but that his P:E Diet (protein vs. energy) explains the success of every successful diet out there.

In an excerpt in the book, Dr. Naiman states...

"What EXACTLY were the differences between the diet and exercise of these healthy elites versus those plagued by chronic disease? Gradually I came to the realization that the principles at work were unbelievably simple, and equally simple to implement. The rules for diet were so basic that I couldn’t believe I hadn’t realized them earlier. Target nutrient density—mostly just protein and minerals—while minimizing toxins, including the energy toxicity of exceeding your carbohydrate and fat storage."

Host Geoff Woo and Dr. Naiman discuss the delicate balance of metabolic substrates, why protein should be the building block for an energy-dense diet, the preferred intermittent fasting & time-restricted feeding schedule, the state of the carnivore community, the potential flaws of the popular 'carbohydrate insulin hypothesis', and accessible tips for bodyweight training / weight loss.

Rank #4: Intermittent Fasting When Stressed & Understanding Blood Sugar Spikes · #118 ft. Dr. Molly Maloof

Podcast cover
Read more

Feeling stressed out? Your metabolism may be sharing the burden.

This episode, featuring returning favorite Dr. Molly Maloof, revolves around stress.

An essential facet of human function, how we perceive and respond to the stressors in our lives is key for our well-being. It’s not all simply in your mind, and even if the source of a stress IS mental, there can be physical and metabolic downstream effects.

Intermittent fasting is an example of direct physical and metabolic stress. Yes, while we are huge advocates of fasting & its many benefits, it is important to understand this nuance.

That teases out a question...should you still fast if you’re under heavy stress?

Speaking from personal experience, Dr. Maloof provides interesting insight into when it may be time to take a stress break from fasting. In addition, Geoff & Dr. Maloof chat about nutritional periodization to train your metabolism, continuous glucose monitoring and how to interpret different glucose spikes, and the importance of mitochondrial function.

HVMN's Geoffrey Woo (CEO) & Dr. Brianna Stubbs (Research Lead) watch respond to a recent video posted by Marc Lobliner (Tiger Fitness). The video was titled "Intermittent Fasting is a HOAX - Studies Are In!".

If you've been keeping up with the recent emergence of more biohackers and athletes looking to optimize their performance and health by utilizing ketones, you know that the research behind this fuel source has been increasing steadily. As the data grows thanks to the hard work of talented and intelligent researchers, so does the proof of the benefits brought by being in ketosis. 

One such talented researcher in the space is Dominic D'Agostino, who's primary focus is developing and testing metabolic-based therapies, including ketogenic diets, ketone esters, ketone supplements and metabolic-based drugs. Dominic, in true biohacker form, often performs various n=1 tests on himself with ketone supplements, namely ketone salts and esters. As Geoff digs into Dominic's lifestyle as a ketone researcher and his scientific findings, Dominic drops countless nuggets of knowledge regarding the science and research behind ketones. Not only has ketones showed improvements in cognitive and physical performance, but Dominic is also on the cutting-edge of researching the potential anti-anxiety properties of the fuel source!

Dr. Lori Shemek is a pioneer in creating global awareness of low-level inflammation and how it is responsible for most illness, disease, faster aging and weight gain. She has been sending out the message about inflammation long before it was a buzz word.

Dr. Shemek has uncovered the pathway to the core cause of weight: inflamed fat cells that not only promote unwanted excess weight gain and belly fat, but poor health as well.

In this episode, Dr. Shemek and Geoff discuss:

  • Markers of inflammation and the different types of inflammation (low level vs. high level)
  • How insulin resistance and mitochondrial health relates to inflammation
  • Pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory foods

Rank #9: Fasting for Longevity ft. Peter Bowes || Ep. 44

Podcast cover
Read more

We all know a healthy diet is essential for all aspects of health, but what if we can further hack our lifespans by controlling our feeding windows? You can...it's called intermittent fasting! If the direction current science is heading is any indication, taking charge of when to eat means taking charge of many levers in your biology that can lead to a long, healthy life. 

Episode 44 features Peter Bowes, a BBC reporter and host of the LLAMA Podcast. One of the earliest supporters of HVMN's foray into intermittent fasting, Peter shares our core value of creating an open forum for the community to support and become educated. Peter has always had a foundational interest in longevity, spurring him to experiment with various practices and connect with thought-leaders around the world. The experimentation will never end, but it's safe to say that Peter, like many biohackers, found intermittent fasting to be a biohack he will implement for the rest of his life.  

Geoffrey Woo and Peter discuss the biological mechanisms of fasting (such as lowering IGF-1 levels, a hormone that has been linked to cancer when it reaches higher levels), the difference between working towards a long health-span vs. a long life-span, ponder how to keep that "spark" in you alive as you age, and answer questions from the community.

Podcast cover

When it comes to intermittent fasting, the most common question from beginners who struggle with the hunger is: “What can you drink during your fast?"

A fasting purist would answer with nothing but water. A more relaxed faster may point you to a cup of black coffee, tea, or bone broth.

Let's face it: Intermittent fasting can be tough...especially for a newbie!

What can one drink to help get them through a fast without "breaking" it?

In this podcast clip, Dr. Jason Fung details why he believes green tea & ketone esters could be an effective "fasting" hack.

Whether it's through diet, exercise, nootropics, or cutting-edge biotechnology, there’s tons of levers we can pull to improve our health and performance. Siim Land, a biohacker and high-performance coach, has been experimenting with these levers much of his life, recently sharing his knowledge and experiments through his Youtube channel. While he has dabbled in many biohacks, his bread and butter interventions (or should we say just butter) are following the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting.

What do keto and IF have in common? One of the main end goals of the two interventions is ketosis - a physiological state in which ketones are being burned as fuel.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • The intuitive “feeling” of ketosis and how you may not need to rely on ketone monitors all the time as you become more experienced
  • What changes in biomarkers like IGF-1 might mean when eating high-fat
  • What is okay to consume when following keto or intermittent fasting

Podcast cover

Geoff sits down and has a 1:1 conversation with Professor Thomas Seyfried, a renowned and controversial researcher who authored "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease". 

Cancer has generally been considered a genetic disease since its inception, but Professor Seyfried fights against that view and argues that it is a metabolic disease. Encouraging doctors to look into metabolic treatments as the first method to combat cancer cells, Seyfried may have a point. Metabolic treatments include caloric restriction, fasting, and ketogenic diets...all of which Seyfried speculates have the ability to help the body and kill off cancer cells. There are certain bodies of research showing that cancer cells thrive on sugars and amino acids, which metabolic therapies have the potential to control. Could cancer truly be a metabolic disease?

#165 - A Plant-Based Diet Approach to a Healthy Heart & More · Dr. Joel Kahn (America's Healthy Heart Doc)

Podcast cover
Read more

It's no secret that the H.V.M.N. Podcast regularly features interviews from some of the top carnivore diet proponents out there. To name a few, our episodes with Mikhaila Peterson, Dr. Paul Saladino, Dr. Shawn Baker, and Ironman World Champion Pete Jacobs have all clearly struck a chord with our community.

As an evidence-based podcast, we believe it is only fair to provide a platform that presents a different perspective in the "diet wars". Specifically, we have yet to have an in-depth discussion about plant-based diets and the science associated with a nutritional intervention many are increasingly adopting.

Dr. Joel Kahn, known as "America's Healthy Heart Doc", has been a plant-based cardiologist for many years and treated thousands of acute heart attacks during his career. If there is a single point both sides (whether you're a hardcore carnivore or vegetarian) can agree on, it's that poor nutrition is a core cause of a number of chronic diseases - which traditional standard of care is still slowly coming to grips with. Instead of treating sickness and symptoms, Dr. Kahn now actively works to prevent (and reverse) disease, through a holistic lifestyle that incorporates nutrition, exercise, and the application of cutting-edge therapies.

In Episode 165 of the H.V.M.N. Podcast, Geoff and Dr. Kahn discuss:

· How Dr. Kahn first got into cardiology and what led him to commit to a plant-based diet. History of the rise of highly-processed foods, nuances of corporate-funded research, and experimenting with a plant-based keto diet.

· The complicated ecosystem of fats, triglycerides, lipids, and lipoproteins in heart health. How should one think about cholesterol levels given all these factors?

· Dr. Valter Longo's "Fast Mimicking Diet" - Why go on a calorie-restricted diet that mimics fasting than actually intermittent fasting?

#163 - When Do Ketone Esters Work Best? Making Sense of Conflicting Data on Exogenous Ketones · Research Roundup

Podcast cover
Read more

"Exogenous ketosis impacts neither performance nor muscle glycogen breakdown in prolonged endurance exercise".

This is the title of a recent study on exogenous ketones impact on performance, and published by Professor Peter Hespel in The Journal of Applied Physiology.

However, previous seminal research, including a study from Prof. Hespel and published in the same journal, found results that were strikingly different.

"Ketone ester supplementation blunts overreaching symptoms during endurance training overload".

One of the key findings of that study was that ketone ester intake following exercise markedly blunts the development of physiological symptoms indicating overreaching, and at the same time significantly enhances endurance exercise performance.

A finding from this new study comes to the conclusion that ketone ester consumption during a simulated cycling race does not cause glycogen sparing, nor does it affect all-out performance.

How does one make sense of conflicting (or even neutral) data?

Geoffrey Woo and Dr. Latt Mansor (Research Lead at HVMN), are here in an episode of Research Roundup to break all this science down and provide clarity on when exogenous ketones work best, and where further research is needed (which seems to almost always be the case, right everyone? 😉).

#162 - The Sapien Diet: Adopting Ancestral Principles, Avoiding Food Lies, & Modern Nutrition Science · Brian Sanders (@Peak Human)

Podcast cover
Read more

"That's how [Game Changers] made a whole film, they cherry-picked their data...I'd love to make a film that couldn't be debunked. That's my whole goal."

Nutrient density, millions of years of human evolution, and modern nutrition science is the framework for the "Sapien Diet". Not to be mistaken as a trendy "one size fits all" diet, but a set of guidelines and principles Brian Sanders believes how the modern human should eat.

Brian Sanders, who is the host of the Peak Human Podcast & filmmaker behind the upcoming Food Lies Film, has collated a variety of perspectives on optimal nutrition and performance throughout his health journey and research. Although Brian is of the mind that nutrition lies on a spectrum and should be personalized for an individual, his Sapien Diet framework largely revolves around eating a single constant: Animal-based foods, while avoiding the obvious: Highly-processed and refined foods.

The recent demonization of meat is somewhat of an oddity, given that it has historically been directly tied to the advance of human evolution. With plant-based diets on the rise, the opposite camp of the "diet wars" (carnivores) have been resistant to the mainstream popularization of plant-based nutrition.

Who is right? Who is wrong?

Geoffrey Woo & Brian Sanders have an informative discussion on the spectrum of nutrition, the dangers of falling too deep into microscopic research, and why the current science & historical nature of animal-based nutrition trumps a plant-based diet.

#160 - Modern Leadership: We Need Communication, Transparency, and Empathy...NOW

Podcast cover
Read more

Less than half a year into 2020, we've experienced global, tectonic shifts that are still being felt now. It's time for modern leadership.

Common attributes of leadership, such as assertiveness and charisma, are simply no longer enough in the current climate. As society becomes more connected and multi-faceted, our leaders must evolve as well.

Communication, transparency, and empathy. Geoffrey Woo, founder of H.V.M.N., strongly believes these are traits essential for effective leadership. A leader that listens, a leader that unites. This is an element that has largely been lacking during these times of crises...this is what must be fixed.

The H.V.M.N. Podcast will be donating all of the ad revenue we receive during the month of June to Talent x Opportunity (TxO) fund, a fund designed to invest in underrepresented and underserved founders. We hope that the leaders of the next generation will build a healthy future for all of humanity.

#159 - Blood Glucose Regulation: A Guide to Glycemic Index, Continuous Glucose Monitoring, & Intermittent Fasting · Kara Collier, RDN

Podcast cover
Read more

Kara Collier, the Director of Nutrition at Nutrisense, is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Nutrition Support Clinician who specializes in glucose control and metabolism.

Kara, drawn to the power of continuous glucose monitors (CGM's), has meticulously experimented with various foods and the impact they would have on her blood glucose levels. By having real-time data tracked over years on a spreadsheet, CGM's have been indispensable tool that has helped (& continues to!) fine-tune her diet.

With her previous experience working in traditional hospital institutions and becoming fed up with the shortcomings of standard care (recalling regular instances where metabolically-impaired patients were given soda & highly processed foods), Kara knew that truly personalized nutrition was the future - and she is working tirelessly to spread the message.

For example, the effects of intermittent fasting between men and women seem to differ in substantial ways that are recently coming into light. Geoff & Kara dive into the nuances of that much-requested topic, low-carb and ketogenic diets, quality of food, and more in this podcast episode!

Could Exercise Decrease Immune System Function & Increase Infection Risk? · Research Roundup

Podcast cover
Read more

Multiple studies have shown that moderate exercise is beneficial for the immune system, especially for the elderly and those with chronic diseases. This is a fairly common and widely-accepted understanding.

However, there is another school of thought warning that too much exercise can actually decrease immune system function and increase risk of infections.

In a time where many of us are looking to boost our immune system, could too much (i.e. strenuous) exercise actually be doing more harm than good?

Dr. Latt Mansor (Research Lead at H.V.M.N.) dives into a recent paper that explores this very question, in which two groups of scientists debate the impact of exercise has on immunity.

#157 - Coronavirus Crisis Finally Reveals Metabolic Dysfunction as the True Pandemic? · Dr. Paul Saladino

Podcast cover
Read more

"Absolutely there are diets that can protect you against coronavirus. The health of an individual at a metabolic level is...everything."

Dr. Paul Saladino is the leading authority on the science and application of the carnivore diet. He has used this diet to reverse autoimmunity, chronic inflammation and mental health issues in hundreds of patients, many of whom had been told their conditions were untreatable.

Since the beginning of the global COVID-19 crisis, Dr. Saladino has been boldly voicing his opinions on how various countries implemented their lockdown policies and why the best, science-driven way to protect yourself begins with the root cause of so many diseases in the first place...

The state of your metabolic health.

According to this study (https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/10.1089/met.2018.0105), only 12% of Americans are considered metabolically healthy. While there has not been formal random controlled trials published just yet, there is a strong case to be made with existing and emerging correlating data / science suggesting that the state of one's metabolic health is an essential factor when faced with the virus.

In this in-depth podcast interview, Geoff Woo & Dr. Paul Saladino discuss the timeline of the coronavirus, how skewed messaging is being pushed by the media, his evolved guidance for the carnivore diet and how insulin resistance is linked to immune system function, and even delve into some fascinating hypotheses that put the coronavirus' actual danger to human health into question.

#156 - Apolo Ohno (8x Olympic Medalist) Reveals His Mental Hacks for Success

Podcast cover
Read more

Apolo Anton Ohno has a remarkable track record as an athlete, becoming the most decorated American Olympian at the Winter Olympics and inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame. Post-sport career (& post "Dancing With the Stars" fame, as we're sure some are aware), Apolo continues to blaze new paths for himself and dedicates much of his time empowering others to reach their own goals.

In this podcast interview, Apolo firmly states that he was at a factual, physiological disadvantage during his short track speed skating competitions when compared to his competitors.

So, how did Apolo come out so frequently on top? What was he doing differently? How did he win 8 Olympic medals?

As much as he was training his body for peak physical performance, he was also training his mind...if not even harder than his body.

Pushing his mental game to the absolute limit, sharpening it, and continuously channeling it (all the way from training to race day) was his secret weapon. His mind was the key to success.

The mental resilience and competitive edge he built up during his athletic career were never lost. Apolo, with unwavering discipline, continually adapts that performance mindset to support ongoing personal and professional growth. From following a cyclical keto diet to intermittent fasting, Apolo stays on top of both his mental and physical game.

#155 - Intermittent Fasting During Quarantine & Effects on Immune System - Should You Do It?

Podcast cover
Read more

Could intermittent fasting or time restricted eating help you stay safe from the coronavirus? Is it a good idea to put the human body under metabolic "stress", when many are already faced with a particularly stressful time?

It's not a simple "Yes" or "No" answer.

In this podcast, Geoffrey Woo & Dr. Latt Mansor explore the existing scientific literature behind intermittent fasting and dive deep into a recently published study, which showed that healthy participants actually boosted their immune system through 30 days of consecutive fasting. Extrapolating data from both this study and others, they come to their own conclusions and offer their best guidance to how one should think about intermittent fasting during the COVID-19 crisis.

#153 - Running Through Hell: Enduring Ultrarunning & Boosting Mental Health · Lisa Tamati

Podcast cover
Read more

Lisa Tamati is a professional ultra endurance athlete who has crushed some of the toughest endurance events in the world, such as the grueling Badwater Ultramarathon held in Death Valley. Lisa became the first woman from New Zealand to complete this infamous race.

Lisa’s adventures have taken her far and wide, including a harrowing expedition through the Libyan Desert that nearly killed her. Despite having over 140 ultramarathons under her belt and achieving various accomplishments, Lisa has also struggled with her mental health - battling with her self esteem, body image, depression, fear, and anxiety.

Ultrarunning forced Lisa to learn how to sharpen her mental health and push her physical limits even through traumatic events.

In this interview, Lisa goes into great detail about how both her athletic & general life experiences (both positive & negative) made her become the woman she is today. When her mother had an aneurism and fell critically ill, she was unresponsive to the doctors’ standard of healthcare. Lisa then took matters into her own hands and saved her mother’s life through a self-researched protocol that incorporated hyperbaric oxygen therapy, targeted nutrition, nootropics, and more.

After 4 years, Lisa’s mother is now healthy - regaining her cognition, peripheral vision, and driver’s license. Lisa has ran through hell & back, and dedicates much of her time now motivating and training others become the best they can be.

Keto / Low-Carb Diets & Ketone Esters REVERSE Brain Aging...But Glucose Accelerates It · Research Roundup

Podcast cover
Read more

Brain aging is inevitable, but not uniform; every brain ages differently. Are there lifestyle and nutritional interventions we can follow to reduce the rate of decline?

A recent study found that those who followed a ketogenic and low-carb diet did indeed see positive results that we can attribute to preventing (perhaps even reversing) cognitive decline as they age. Fascinatingly, even those who followed a standard American diet found that simply ingesting an exogenous ketone ester (H.V.M.N. Ketone Ester) resulted in similar, positive neurological effects.

This study, led by Lilianne R. Mujica-Parodi, PhD, and published in PNAS, is titled "Diet modulates brain network stability, a biomarker for brain aging, in young adults". When interviewed about her findings, she is quoted:

"...as people get older, their brains start to lose the ability to metabolize glucose efficiently, causing neurons to slowly starve, and brain networks to destabilize. Thus, we tested whether giving the brain a more efficient fuel source, in the form of ketones, either by following a low-carb diet or drinking ketone supplements, could provide the brain with greater energy. Even in younger individuals, this added energy further stabilized brain networks.”

In this episode of Research Roundup: Dr. Latt Mansor, H.V.M.N. Research Lead, walks us through the methods, results, and analyses formulated from these experiments.

#152 - Eat More Fat? Eat Less Carbs? The Priority is PROTEIN (P:E Diet) · Dr. Ted Naiman

Podcast cover
Read more

With over 100,000 patient interactions and two decades of experience as a board-certified Family Medicine physician, Dr. Ted Naiman continues to accumulate a wide spectrum of knowledge regarding nutrition, fitness, and the keys to optimal human health.

Most recently, Dr. Naiman collated his work into his book: 'The P:E Diet'. He makes it clear that he does not follow specific diet dogma (keto, paleo, carnivore, vegan, etc), but that his P:E Diet (protein vs. energy) explains the success of every successful diet out there.

In an excerpt in the book, Dr. Naiman states...

"What EXACTLY were the differences between the diet and exercise of these healthy elites versus those plagued by chronic disease? Gradually I came to the realization that the principles at work were unbelievably simple, and equally simple to implement. The rules for diet were so basic that I couldn’t believe I hadn’t realized them earlier. Target nutrient density—mostly just protein and minerals—while minimizing toxins, including the energy toxicity of exceeding your carbohydrate and fat storage."

Host Geoff Woo and Dr. Naiman discuss the delicate balance of metabolic substrates, why protein should be the building block for an energy-dense diet, the preferred intermittent fasting & time-restricted feeding schedule, the state of the carnivore community, the potential flaws of the popular 'carbohydrate insulin hypothesis', and accessible tips for bodyweight training / weight loss.

In recent months, uncertainty has been at the forefront of many of our minds.

With the rapid developments regarding the ongoing COVID-19 virus and global lockdowns, it's only natural to feel uneasy and anxious about the current situation.

While much of this is out of our own control, Geoffrey Woo strongly advises that we'd be remiss to not take this time to take a step back and improve ourselves.

Of course, we must do our part to "flatten the curve" for the greater good, but we can also make our individual curves in self-development continue to move up in a positive direction.

1. Establish, transition, and commit to new routines.

2. Remain physically isolated, but not socially isolated.

3. Be proactive when possible, not reactive.

p.s. Wash your hands :)

To follow your "gut", it's essential to have a healthy gut in the first place. Most still shudder at the thought of bacteria flowing around in their body, but probiotics / prebiotics play a hugely important role in the health of your microbiome.

Kombucha is a fairly recent and accessible beverage that introduces healthy bacteria into your diet.

In this episode, we welcome Vanessa Dew, the co-founder of Health-Ade Kombucha.

Geoff & Vanessa discuss the following and much more:

  • How is kombucha brewed and why exactly is it healthy
  • Building the fast-growing kombucha brand from scratch
  • The future of kombucha and why the category is growing so quickly...could it catch up to the likes of "big soda"?
