Episode 157: Dr. Steven Bishop
Play • 1 hr 21 min

Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. We are joined on the show today by Dr. Steven Bishop. He attended UVA School of Medicine and did his residency at VCU where he was the chief resident. He went on to become the Clerkship Director and Associate Chair of education at VCU.

In our discussion today, Dr. Bishop shares the story of his journey away from conventional approaches/thinking to a lifestyle/low-carb approach to treating metabolic disease. In light of the diverse responses of various countries to Covid, we discuss the value of keeping an open mind rather than being dogmatic without having all of the information needed to make an informed decision. We talk about the importance of staying curious as a doctor rather then falling into the rut of giving our patients cookie cutter prescriptions. Finally, we discuss the variety of tragic negative effects of social isolation.

For more information, please see the links below. Thank you for listening!

Dr Sylvia Tara | Why we gain weight and what to do about it! KKP: 239
Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Sylvia Tara. She holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry from The University of California, San Diego, and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She was a healthcare management consultant with McKinsey & Company and has worked for the world's largest biotechnology companies. After an extended battle with fat, Dr. Tara became fascinated with its resiliency and embarked on a mission to better understand it. This book culminated in years of research and interviews with physicians, patients, and leading scientists. The Secret Life of Fat will forever change how you think about this misunderstood organ. Dr. Sylvia Tara is the author of the book, The Secret Life of Fat. This new book brings together historical perspective and cutting-edge research to reveal fat's true identity: an organ critical to our health. In this episode, Dr. Sylvia Tara reveals the inspiration behind her fat research. We usually think fat is simply storing calories. What most people don't know is that fat serves many purposes. Also, there are different types of fats. We dive into everything you need to know about fat, including what's vital about leptin and adiponectin. Later, we discuss the difference between men and women when it comes to fat loss. Plus, we talk about which types of exercises will be critical on your health journey. / E P I S O D E S P ON S O R S PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off. [00:30] About Dr. Sylvia Tara * Sylvia gains weight really easily. Her whole life, she watches people eat whatever they feel like, drink whatever they want, and not gain any weight. * So, Dr. Sylvia decided to understand fat once and for all. * She went on a big expedition to really understand fat. She wanted to know why she would gain fat easier than other people. * The Secret Life of Fat is based on all this research! * We think of fat as storage for calories; however, it’s so much more than that. [02:25] What Is Fat? * Fat is a complex endocrine organ that has multiple functions: * Storing calories. * Producing leptin – which has a great effect on our brains, our bones, and multiple organs. * Creating adiponectin – which has a lot of impact on where our fat is stored. [03:25] What You Need to Know About Leptin * Our fat produces this hormone called leptin. It's the biggest producer of leptin in the body, and fat releases it into the bloodstream. Once leptin goes to the bloodstream, it goes to your brain; it'll tell your brain that you’re overall satisfied. Basically, the brain will know that you are good, there's enough nutrition in the world, and you are okay. * Leptin will also communicate with your muscles. It tells your muscles that it's okay to expend energy because you have enough nutrition. * When we start to lose fat and begin to lose weight, say 10% or more, we reduce the amount of leptin we have. * So, people who've lost 10% or more of their body weight respond enormously to food. * Overall, once you've lost weight, you have to eat less than someone who's at that weight normally. It is why diets don’t work! [07:15] The Role of Adiponectin * Adiponectin is more or less telling fat where to go. * When we have dietary fat, adiponectin will guide the fat in our bloodstream to the right parts of our body. * So there's different kinds of fat, there's white fat. It's right under the skin, it's in your thighs, buttocks, arms, and it's actually the safest places to deposit fat. If you're going to have some fat, those are the places to put it. * There's also visceral fat; it sits underneath the stomach wall. It is the more dangerous fat that's nestled against the internal pancreas organ. * There's brown fat – it burns calories instead of storing calories. * Plus, there is beige fat – it that can turn brown when we exercise. * Overall, adiponectin will help guide the fat you eat and put it into the right place. [09:20] How Exercise Can Help Adiponectin * It’s around 20 hours of jogging a week to get adequate levels of adiponectin. That is when your body will start to shift around where your fat is. * High-intensity interval training will also help raise your levels of adiponectin. * You have to exercise a lot before it starts to affect you. * It's best to work with your diet and do some exercise. Don't rely on exercise alone! [11:10] How To Get More Brown Fat * Brown fat is actually used to create heat. * We have brown fat around our heart; we have it around the clavicle areas and our spines. Having brown fat around those important areas is critical. These areas need to be heated even when we don't have exposure to cold. * Beige fat, which was discovered last decade, is the fat that can turn brown through exercise. * The more you exercise, the more you can increase your levels of brown fat. * Exposure to cold will also increase your brown fat. [13:45] Women Produce 33% More Ghrelin Than Men After Exercise * Women are designed just to have more fat. There are many reasons for this: * Fat produces estrogen. * Fat is linked to our reproducibility. * When women exercise, they have a different reaction than men. Women’s bodies produce ghrelin after exercise, and it's a hormone that's released from your stomach. * If you burn off 600 calories or so, women produce 33% more ghrelin than men. * There's all kinds of dieting tips for women versus men because women are different. [17:30] How Women Can Lose Body Fat * Women have to be really patient, and you have to understand where you are on the spectrum of fat. * Everyone has an individual fat blueprint. * You have to understand your fat, and you have to be really forgiving of yourself. * Another issue with women is that they have something called dichotomous thinking. [22:05] The Role Of How To Use Intermittent Fasting For Fat Loss * Our growth hormone peaks at night. So, fasting during the nighttime will benefit your body because eating mitigates growth hormone levels. * You want growth hormones because it’s a great way to burn fat. * If you sleep adequately, you're increasing your levels of leptin, which means you're going to be a little bit more satiated the next day during fasting. [26:30] Strategies To Keep Insulin At Bay * Fiber will bring down insulin. * Eating higher protein diets, lower carbs, and obviously not a ton of sugar will also help keep insulin at bay. * Fasting enables you to manage insulin, and it helps with insulin sensitivity. [31:35] The Role of Genetics In Fat Storage * To manage your fat, you have to work harder if you're at a genetic disadvantage. * Some people tend to have a much higher appetite because they have a certain variant of the FTO gene. [35:30] How Environmental Factors Affect Fat * The Four P’s: * Pesticides * Plastics * Preservatives * Parabens * Overall, it's important to really watch what you eat and watch what you put on your body. Think about what's really in the food that you eat! [43:45] Testing Your Fat * The best way to test your fat is a CT scan. * Sadly, there is no easier way to find out. [48:20] Correlation Between Stress & Fat * Stress is linked to abdominal fat. * Exercise can be a perfect solution for people to lower their stress levels. AND MUCH MORE!

Part 115 - Dr. Cate Shanahan & Tucker Goodrich on the True Cause of Disease and How We Know This
Today is a special show that I really enjoyed with 2 guests - Dr. Cate Shanahan and Tucker Goodrich. I had Tucker on years ago for episode 20 and he laid out the entire case against seed oils which was very compelling. Dr. Cate has been on twice already (more recently) and is a wealth of knowledge on many, many things, especially the dangers of seed oils and reinforcing the Sapien diet concepts. We cover how people get fat & sick all the way down to the mitochondrial level. We discuss the different players in this process including seed oils (or more specifically excess amounts of omega-6), refined grains, and sugar. We also do my favorite thing and look at all sides of the arguments. We use an article a seed oil supporter wrote as a tool to check in on the studies and claims cited. You won’t want to miss this one! It’s a long one, but we cover a lot, and there’s a bunch of great new info.

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here Show Notes: News topic du jour: Green tea extract only affects markers of oxidative status postprandially: lasting antioxidant effect of flavonoid-free diet* In conclusion, GTE incorporated into meat patties in doses realistic for addition to processed foods only leads to a short-term change in plasma antioxidant capacity and has no long-term effects on oxidation parameters within the blood or urine compartments in smokers or in non-smokers. The study can therefore be seen as a 10 weeks controlled study with dietary depletion of all food antioxidants derived from fruits and vegetables, except for carrots and potatoes. During the depletion we observed a decrease in oxidative damage to proteins, DNA, and lipids, concomitantly with a major reduction in plasma ascorbate and minor changes in other vitamins and in anti- oxidant enzyme activities. We speculate that these seem- ingly positive effects on oxidative status are partly due to depletion of some pro-oxidant compounds co-existing with vitamin C in fruits and vegetables and this underlines the general lack of solid knowledge of the mechanisms by which a diet rich in fruits and vegetables cause a decrease in the risk of chronic diseases. 1. Potassium intake as it relates to Insulin resistance, metabolic disorders and NAFLD [22:41] Deirdre says: Hi Robb, I stumbled upon a couple of journals that state there is a link between hypokalemia and IR, metabolic disorders and NAFLD, of which I have (all of them). I have a difficult time losing weight, even when following healthy eating to a T. I've been tracking my food on myfitnesspal for a month, and upon reflection, I'm not getting NEARLY enough potassium every day. Sodium doesn't seem to be an issue. I salt my food pretty well. I do magnesium soaks once or twice a week. Can you touch on this subject a bit more, and maybe make some recommendations on how to hit that 4700 mg mark for potassium daily? Even with eating a large amount of veggies and protein, it's still a difficult number to hit. Dried herbs like chervil, parsley, basil and tarragon seem to be my best bets, but it's difficult to get 100g of dried herbs in a day. LOL. Thanks, Deidre 1/2lb steak 800mg 1 avocado 1,000mg 1oz nuts 200mg 2. Hormone Replacement Therapy - Good? Bad? [27:22] Marianna says: I'm a 69 YO. I'm a post menopausal female, who a little over a year ago started HRT about 18 months ago. I used bio identical HRT for the first 7 years after menopause then in keeping with recommendations went off it for about 11 years. My goal in retirement is to be as mentally and physically healthy as possible for as long as I possibly can. I'm quite active, exercise daily including cardio and strength training with yoga thrown in. Through IF and low carb eating I've recently lost 25 pounds and am5'6" and 155 lbs. The HRT I 'm using is administered via bio identical pellets every 4th month with oral progesterone taken daily. My decision to go back to HRT was prompted by reading Avrum Blooming's book Estrogen Matters. It was recently reinforced by reading Lisa Mosconi's book The XX Brain. Now finally to my question! Am I doing myself harm or good or just wasting my money (I can afford it) by seeking HRT at my age? As far as noticeable health benefits the main thing I notice is my skin looks a lot better. Effect of menopausal hormone therapy on components of the metabolic syndrome 3. Toenail fungus [31:52] Bradley says: Hello Robb and Nicki, About a year ago the middle toe toenail on my left foot curled on the right side of the toe and I noticed there was fungus under the toenail. There was no pain and did not seem to be a problem. During this past summer, I went to the doctor for my regular annual blood draw and showed the doc the toenail. She said it is just cosmetic and is not an issue unless it spreads. Also, she said the only thing that can be done is take some pills, which she said is very hard on the liver, for several months until it clears, and recommended that I do not take the medication unless the fungus spreads. Then, in October/November, I noticed fungus behind the big toe toenail on my right foot. The toenail on my right foot did not curl, but, it has more of a lumpy feel and I can see the white fungus growth underneath the toenail. I still have zero pain on either foot and not sure if it is even a big concern. However, considering a conventional doctor is reluctant to put me on the medication because of the potential side effects, do you happen to know of anything else that can be done? I have tried the foot baths with tea tree oil and other foot soaks and toenail ointments and they are not working. I have found some docs on the internet recommending special diets for around 6 months or more, but they all vary somewhat (have not attempted yet). Also, found a somewhat fringe treatment by ingesting sugar and turpentine (have not tried this either). Supposedly, the sugar attracts the parasite or fungus or whatever and the turpentine eliminates it and you just shit it all out. Thank you both very much. 4. High BUN: should I be concerned? [39:07] William says: Hi Robb and Nicki, Over 5 years of taking annual bloodwork, I have found that my BUN is consistently high (30-35 mg/dL). I’ve had my own theories as to why, so see if am I on the right track with this line of thinking: 1. I’ve been a daily sauna user for the past 5 years, which could lead to dehydration and elevated urea in the blood. I drink at least a liter of water during and after, and probably an additional 1-2 L around dinner time. Total daily liquids averages 4-5L. I salt my food heavily and take Mg and K supplements, but don’t measure total electrolytes 2. I tend to eat most of my protein at night (100-150g), with a half coming in the form of plant-based protein powders 3. The blood tests are always taken first thing in the morning, so it’s possible I’m still dehydrated from the night’s of sleep, combined with the high protein intake. I don’t normally drink a lot of water upon waking because I don’t feel thirsty, although thanks to LMNT I’m starting to change that :-) My doctor is concerned about my high BUN and an increase in chance to develop gout and kidney damage. He has advised me to reduce my protein intake. However, my avg daily protein is 150g, and as an active 165lb man, that number seems safe and appropriate. Have you looked much into BUN in people on paleo/keto diets with high protein? Are my numbers way out of whack and dangerous? Or is high BUN less of a concern in the context of a clean diet and low systemic inflammation? Could there be something else going on to contribute to this consistently high BUN? Or is it as simple is spreading my protein intake more evenly throughout the day instead of one large bolus at night? Any thoughts and insights you have would be very helpful! Thanks! William 5. Where In The World to Live? [44:24] Keri says: Hi guys! Huge fan since way back in the day. Love the podcast and am grateful for all you do. I have a weird, possibly not typical question, but value your opinions and feel like it’s relevant and something you might have an opinion on. Anyway... My family has been working towards moving to a small, debt-free, self-sufficient farm since 2009. We’re currently ready to start looking to buy. We grew up on farms/ranches and have years of experience. We’re into regenerative agriculture, pasture raised animals etc. We also homeschool all of our kids. My question is: we can move anywhere, considering political climates, taxes, cultural/social environment,…

133: Robb Wolf - Future Trends: Where Health, Nutrition, and More Are Heading
New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author and former research biochemist Robb Wolf comes back on the show to chat about a number of different topics. In his first episode with Dr. Anthony Gustin, Robb discussed topics ranging from electrolyte imbalances to mTOR activation. This episode is similar since it covers several topics but Robb and Dr. Gustin chat about things like the future of the carnivore diet, paleo, and keto, fake meats, regenerative agriculture and more. Robb also shares his views on using health trackers and why he suggests only using these if you have a goal in mind. He also discusses the biggest pitfalls with health trackers and how to avoid them. And, finally, Robb and Dr. Gustin also veer off into other non-health related topics such as censorship, the cancel culture, and some of the problems associated with big tech companies getting involved in our food supply. As mentioned earlier, Robb Wolf is a former research biochemist who dove into the science of fasting and low-carb diets. He also studied the mechanisms at play before writing his two best-selling books Wired to Eat and The Paleo Solution. Fast forward to today and Robb and his wife help people take back their health in their Healthy Rebellion program. When you check out this episode, you’ll learn more about the future of health and nutrition and so much more. Tune in now and enjoy!
