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.

Cholesterol gets a bad rap everywhere. Poor bugger actually has quite a role to play and we decided to figure that out! Get ready to geek out on this two part fireside chat with Dave Feldman & Siobhan Huggins from Cholesterol Code!

Dave Feldman Bio: Dave Feldman is a senior software engineer and entrepreneur. He began working with programming and system engineering at a very young age and has always enjoyed learning new mechanistic patterns and concepts.

After starting a low carb diet, Dave found his cholesterol numbers increased considerably. He then began reverse engineering the lipid system through self-experimentation and testing, finding it was very dynamic and fluid. He has now demonstrated this multiple times by moving his cholesterol up and down substantially in a matter of days. Siobhan Huggins Bio: After meeting Dave Feldman at Ketofest 2017, Siobhan's passion for lipidology was ignited and she was driven to research all she could in a mad attempt to figure out how lipids were involved in the immune system and chronic diseases. She has since written 2 articles that have been published on cholesterolcode.com  -  on plaque development and LDL modification - with many more posts planned. 

Sio has been keto for 15 months in which time she has lost over 65 pounds, reversed her hypertension and stopped her blood sugars from going out of control. 

Although later to the game than most, Siobhan has dedicated herself to decoding the mysteries​ of cholesterol and is just getting started.

One of the biggest questions is, 'Is meat and animal agriculture sustainable?' A snap judgment based on mainstream media projection would probably be 'Not really' but that's called dogma. It's always good to explore all sides of the arguments and this two part episode delves into the sustainability aspect of animal agriculture while taking a closer look at certain health and nutritional claims of plants and animals.

1:01:33 – Should I buy organic, grass fed or conventional meat?

1:06:39 – Myths created against saturated fat and animal agriculture

1:10:25 – Does cattle destroy the planet by greenhouse emission?

Bio: Peter has extensive experience in forage agriculture. He was the forage extension specialist at Oregon State University from 1986 until 1992. He is currently the Forage Product Manager at Barenbrug USA. His experience led him to study human diet and health. What he’s learned doesn’t agree with low-fat-is-heart-healthy dietary advice we’ ve been given for more than 50 years. This understanding, combined with his forage background, has strengthened his interest in THE truly sustainable agriculture – the production of ruminant animal products! His knowledge, enthusiasm, and speaking style will provide an entertaining and informative presentation.

Keto or fat adaptation has its advantages and weaknesses. In this podcast, we get into the nitty gritty of athletic performance and talk about how we can potentially and strategically use carbs, proteins and fats both to improve body composition and enhance performance. 

Bio: 

In short, Peter started his journey about 3 years ago following NSNG(No Sugar No Grain), fell to the dark side and started following the "Eat loads of extra fat, Fear Protein" groups. He then came back to develop the facebook group to support the science of low carb at The Fat Adapted Athlete.

His starting weight was 275 lbs when he got fed up. He had always a fit person (Cop in the USAF, Martial artist from the age of 5, l lived in an Aikido school for a bit/UshiDeshi, avid weight lifter) but eventually at 46 and 275 lbs, he decided to go low carb and train for a marathon. That turned into running 40-60 miles a week/2000+ miles a year and he dropped to 199. Currently he is at 215-220 lbs and aspiring to reach his goal to lean out at 205 lbs.

Gary Wilson's talk, "The Great Porn Experiment" has changed lives of many men and has brought into attention some of the underlying challenges of our modern world. With erectile dysfunction rates skyrocketing in men under age 40, it was about time we started to look at the science and evidence behind these scary numbers. What's fascinating is how there is overlap in various addictive patterns and at Ketogeek we wanted to better understand how the brain works while potentially interpolating the findings into other lifestyle choices and addictive activities.

Bio: Gary Wilson is author of Your Brain on Porn: Internet Pornography and the Emerging Science of Addiction and presenter of the popular TEDx talk ‘The Great Porn Experiment,’ which has been viewed more than 9 million times, and translated into 18 languages. He hosts the website ‘Your Brain On Porn’, which was created for those seeking to understand and reverse compulsive porn use: http://yourbrainonporn.com. He taught anatomy and physiology for years and has long been interested in the neurochemistry of addiction, mating and bonding. In 2015 the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health presented Wilson with its Media Award for outstanding media contributions and public education on pornography addiction. In 2016, Wilson coauthored an academic paper with 7 US Navy doctors entitled, “Is Internet Pornography Causing Sexual Dysfunctions? A Review with Clinical Reports” and another journal article entitled, “Eliminate Chronic Internet Pornography Use to Reveal Its Effects.”

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. There ongoing work has uncovered the vested interests and ideologies shaping nutritional guidelines at an international level.

This is a VERY loaded podcast in which we talk about combining minimally invasive surgical and medical care with nutrition to Carrie's journey with Type 1 Diabetes and her decision to pursue a plant-based ketogenic diet and then discuss the viability of plant based diets when it comes to achieving dietary and therapeutic goals.

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.
