POWERPOINT

1. Ketosis and Perimenopause  [21:47]

Tammy says:

I have been practicing a keto diet leaning toward carnivore for 3+ months. I've been struggling to stay in ketosis (daily blood testing), and have been unable to identify the reasons for my sometimes dramatic swings in glucose and ketone numbers.  I do have "bad food decision" days, but the numbers don't seem to correlate.  I'm middle aged and believe I am perimenopausal.  Could the hormone fluctuations be cause my ketosis struggles?

Side note: I'm working with a Naturopath to keep my nutrition focused.

Thank you for your time and information!

2. Eating Liver  [25:55]

Valérie says:

Hey Robb and Nicki!

First I have to say I am so glad to be part of THR. Thanks for all the work you do & content you provide. Here's a bit of background info before I ask my questions: I I have been trying to incorporate more organs in my diet because with all the info out there, it seems like the way to go for optimal health. I also cannot tolerate many veggies (I eat mostly beef, fish, eggs, kimchi, beets, carrots, kefir, some sweet potatoes and honey on occasion) so I worry that I am not getting all the nutrients I need with such a limited array of food choices. I have added bone marrow (which I tolerate well) and liver. Liver, however, does not sit well with me: every time I eat it I feel sick afterwards (not necessarily nauseous, but just an overall feeling of being unwell) and it lasts a few hours. First question: what could be causing this? Second: Is liver all the hype it's been touted out to be? Can I still reach optimal health without incorporating it into my diet.. what do you two suggest? Thanks a million! :-)

3. Protein, Calories, and the Missing Link  [31:23]

Lindsey:

Hi Nicki and Robb! Love the podcast and the resources on the website. Thanks for providing logical and fair information for people to tap into. Also, Robb--I love it when you use the term "noodling" and am trying to bring it into the everyday vocabulary of my college students (they don't think it's "cool" enough yet.)

Quick background info--37 year old female, 5'5", 168lbs, around 34% BF, extremely familiar with Paleo and Keto (even did Paleo-Zone back when it was cool). Strength training 2-3 times a week, HIITs 1-2 times a week, walking every day. Saw Robb speak in Flagstaff, Arizona back in 2008, believe it or not.

About a year ago, I became desperate because I wasn't losing fat despite my strict adherence to Paleo. I thought maybe a coach could help me figure out "the key" to whatever I was missing. I decided to grab a Layne Norton coach (low fat, high carb, high protein) who kept lowering my calories and upping my cardio, and wouldn't allow strength training. Even he was surprised at my almost non-existent rate of loss. I ended the program at 1100 calories and about 5lbs lost....which was great, but horribly unsustainable. My body only began losing a tiny bit once I was at or below the 1200 calorie mark. I felt like poop. I've since gained that weight back and have been doing the Paleo/keto lifestyle. I feel better and stronger, but I am uncomfortable with the fat accumulation. I feel like I'm back at square one and none the better for it.

My question centers on fat loss and its relationship to protein and overall calories. You've both said that oftentimes the key to fat loss is protein intake (1g per pound of body weight). However, If my body only loses at very low calorie 1000-1200 a day, but I need to eat 150g of protein a day, that doesn't leave much room for anything else. What am I missing here? Why is my body so hell-bent on keeping that body fat? I was told by the former coach that I may just need to suffer at low calorie/high protein until I reach my goals, but I don't think it should be this difficult or I should have to run my body into the ground to fit into my jeans again. I'm not trying to be a swimsuit competitor, just want to be a bit leaner and stronger while seeing steady fat loss improvements. Don't even care about the number on the scale.

Quick note--I've been out of that LN program for about 9 months. I haven't been eating like an asshat and have tried several times to lose fat and keep my calories down, but all I seem to do is gain. I'm a wee bit frustrated because the fat used to fall off when I while eating Paleo between 25-35 years old. Thanks for your considerations!

4. Hair Loss and Sleep Issues on Keto  [40:03]

Bre says:

Hi Robb and Nicki, I absolutely LOVE your podcast. I credit you both to literally changing my health and the health of my family. I found your podcast when I was in a very desperate health place. Through your advice and books, I have found healing, vitality, and freedom. Thank you so much! I pray you keep doing what you are doing for a very long time.

Some quick context before asking my two questions:

I am a 43 year old female. 5 foot 4, and 150 lbs. I am moderatley active - walk a few miles a day, weightlift a few times a week. But I do work at a desk all day as well.

I had thyroid cancer and a full thyroidectomy 10 years ago. I have taken synthroid and cytomel since. My endocrinologist aims to keep my TSH pretty suppressed to keep risk of returning cancer low, so he has kept me between a  .1 - 1.0 for the last ten years.

Before finding the Keto/Carnivore diet a year ago, I felt like I was dying and not a single doctor could help me. Turns out, I was just a hormonal storm with insulin resistance/leptin resistance, etc. For the last year, I have strictly followed a clean Keto diet, mostly consisting of eggs, beef, ground turkey, bone broth, and greek yogurt with the occasional salad or some berries. My macros are consistently: 70 g protein,  50 g fat, 10 g carbs. (after a decade of eating around 1200 calories (non-keto), I have needed to keep my total calories at or around 900-1000 in order to lose. If I go any higher, I just don't lose.

I am 5lbs away from hitting my 50lb weight loss goal! But most importantly, I feel amazing for the first time since having my thyroid out. My skin is great, my energy is off the charts, I no longer have GI issues, and my moods and cycles have stabilized. Overall, I feel like a million bucks (except for two little issues)

My questions are:

1) - my sleep sucks. I sleep super light, feel like I can never get into a deep sleep, and wake up several times a night, often not being able to fall back asleep. Up until going Keto, I had never suffered with sleep issues. I take NED's sleep CBD, do blue light blocking glasses at night, no screen time, etc. I have a great bed and make my room pitch black (also use Blueblox's sleep mask). No matter what I do, I just can't sleep deep. I am desperate to sleep deep and through the night again, help!

2) - my hair is falling out at concerning speed. Also something I feel has been triggered by my diet. I take Perfect Keto's Collagen, and I take Biotomizer's magnesium, zinc, and vitamin b complex. Is there anything else I can add in to the supplement mix to help with this?

I should mention, because sleep and hair loss can be thryoid level issues, I did just get my levels checked. They are right where they have always been for the last few years (except free T3 was a little lower than normal).

Here's my results from last week:

TSH: .2

Free T4: 1.16

Free T3: 2.75

Fasting Blood Sugar: 77

Can you help? Like I said, I am desperate to sleep again. Thank you!

5. Carnitine and Red Meat Argument with a Doctor  [45:45]

Haley says:

Hey Robb and Nicki,

Thanks for all the awesome information you put out there, I have listening for several years now. Started when I was in school to become a dietitian and glad I did to realize that a lot of the info being taught and pushed on us was unfortunately out dated. Now I am currently working in a community health center where I work closely with the doctors who send me referrals and unfortunately sometimes feel as though I have to work within the box of their nutrition beliefs. The other day I was discussing the Impossible burger with one of the doctors. I argued against it saying it was just processed food and I would MUCH rather someone eat the real thing and actually get some real nutrition from it. He felt differently arguing that red meat was one of the worst things you could eat because of the carnitine. Unfortunately he didn't really seem open to a discussion about it as he was set ins beliefs but I was curious what some of the points you would maybe make to convince him red meat is not the poison he is convinced it is.

Thanks!

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.

How To Turn A Glass Of Water Into A Pharmaceutical, Supplement, Remedy & "Information Carrier" Using The Science Of Infopathy.
bengreenfieldfitness.com/anton I've talked in the past about the use of inaudible sound waves to elicit specific brain wave and neurotransmitter responses, specifically with a device called the "Apollo," which I discuss in this podcast. I've also been exploring the use of magnetic waves to elicit certain neurotransmitter responses, via a device called a "Hapbee," which can simulate chemicals such as caffeine, nicotine, melatonin, MDMA, etc. to elicit a physiological response without the actual intake of supplements, pharmaceuticals, or any other compounds or medicines. I'll be doing a podcast on this device soon. And finally, I've now been experimenting with a so-called "Infopathy" device (use code BENG10 for 10% off any of their devices), which "imprints" water, or your body, with frequencies of everything from St. John's Wort to coffee to Viagra to anything else you want from their literal hundreds of "infoceutical" options. It's so fascinating that I just had to get the inventor on the show! Anton Fedorenko, the creator of the Infopathy devices, received his BASc in applied physics and mathematics and MASc in innovation and high technologies from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in Russia. For 10 years, Anton has been involved with several water-related projects wherein he not only conducted fundamental research but also developed water-related products and web-based platforms. From 2013 to 2017, he was a member of the organizing committee for the annual Water Conference on the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of Water. In 2018, Anton founded Ash*Nu Technologies Inc. and is currently developing two platforms: Infopathy and AquaPsy. Infopathy allows users to transfer infoceuticals (ICs) for health, cosmetic, veterinary, and gardening purposes anytime, anywhere. AquaPsy takes consciousness research to a whole new level. Through AquaPsy, people from around the world can be connected remotely to water-based sensors, which can detect and evaluate influences caused by non-local mind effects. Both these platforms help one rediscover themselves from the quantum view. During this discussion, you'll discover: -Infopathy defined...9:05 An online platform where people can download signals recorded from various substances Use properties for medications without actual substances Naturopaths have used this practice for years First publication on the topic was in 1922 (how metals affect blood vessels in rabbits) Memory of water is a term associated with infopathy Why Water, Sunlight, Grounding & Relationships Are The Keys To Your Health & How To Feed, Clean & Protect Your Body Forever: An Interview With Ben Greenfield's Father Gary Greenfield. Similar, but not the same as homeopathy Article: What Are Infoceuticals? Infoceutical FAQs -Quantum Electro Dynamic (QED) theory applied to everyday life...13:30 Video on the QED theory Should water be consumed immediately after being treated? Consume within 3 days Avoid exposure to WiFi or cell phones Miron glass to protect herbs and nutrients from radiation 1 tsp of salt added into the water to increases the efficacy of infopathy (mineralized water is more stable) IC Pad for charging water (use code BENG10 to save 10%) -Mixing many ingredients into treated water...18:30 A "complex" is a mix of several ingredients into one water Suggestions for complexes in order to get the desired result Public complexes are created by practitioners via a peer-reviewed process Running a new infoceutical on top of an existing one will override the old one -The wearable that allows you to transmit infoceuticals...22:30 IC Hummer wearable device, that can also be used on water (use code BENG10 to save 10%) If you don't have the IC Pad, wrap the Hummer around the water and get the same effect IC Pad is slightly faster than the Hummer and also contains herbs The IC Hummer can be attached to the body...

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: The Best Sources, Benefits, and How To Get Enough
It would be hard to find any health practitioner - traditional, functional, or otherwise - who doesn’t acknowledge the importance of consuming omega-3 fatty acids. Supplements in the form of fish oil or krill oil are widely recommended and consumed, and come with claims of cardiovascular disease prevention, cognitive benefits, and anti-inflammatory properties. But is it really a good idea to get your omega-3s in a gel cap rather than from food? And do they really do everything the media would have you believe? On this podcast, NBT Scientific Director Megan Hall and I discuss omega-3 fatty acids: what they are, what they’re good for, and the best ways to get them. Megan outlines the different types of omega-3 and explains why some are better than others. She also explains why some health claims are overblown, and why buying fish oil supplements may not be the best health strategy.

Dr Jeff Matheson | Why the quality of your fats on keto matter! KKP: 237
Today, I am blessed to have here with me for the THIRD time Dr. Jeff Matheson. He is the co-founder of an all-natural migraine and headache centre, which promotes a non-narcotic approach to pain and headache management. Plus, Dr. Jeff Matheson is the co-founder and medical director of Pure Life Science. Dr. Jeff Matheson successfully practiced medicine in emergency departments across Canada and internationally, from Ontario, Newfoundland, and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. He later was appointed Medical Director of Med-EmergInc in 1998, a company dedicated to staffing underserved hospitals in Canada. Dr. Matheson has traveled extensively throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and South East Asia and well as Oceania. According to Dr. Matheson, “traveling is the best education!” Dr. Matheson is an enthusiastic believer, as well as being immersed in other cultures. Similarly, if one does not listen to patients, one won’t hear what is necessary to understand the patient’s problem, i.e., the patient’s “culture.” It is with this ability to listen and empathize with the patients that Dr. Matheson allows an accurate diagnosis and develop sustainable solutions, optimizing health, and patient outcomes. If a solution cannot be determined, resources will be dedicated, through the involvement of alternative care specialists, ascertaining the best possible treatment for the patient by trying to treat causes, not just manage symptoms. In this episode, Dr. Jeff Matheson dives straight into how our body will produce energy through our cell membranes. If someone lacks energy, they usually think they have a hormone problem, meaning they need to take more hormones. However, that's not the case. Dr. Jeff Matheson explains how our hormones require a delicate balance; adding exogenous hormones will push our bodies out of balance. Instead, think about making different nutritional decisions to fix any hormone irregularities. Later, we discuss why keto and fasting are great for our cells and why fish oils aren't so great for them. Tune in as we chat all about Pure Life Omegas. * Pure Form Omega: https://purelifescience.com/products/pure-form-omega-natural (Use code: Ben4) * Pure Form Omega Liquid: https://purelifescience.com/products/pure-form-omega-liquid (Use code: Ben3) [01:15] How Our Body Will Produce Energy * We're made up of about 70 trillion cells. * Our body is great at communication, not only within each organ but between organs. All this communication is done through the cell membranes. * The cell membrane is the basic divide between the outside world and the inside world – that’s where the fundamental communication takes place. * All hormonal issues boil down to unhealthy cell membranes. [03:45] Hormones Aren’t That Simple * Hormones need a delicate balance. If you start adding exogenous hormones into the system, you're going to push that system out of balance. * How adding exogenous hormones into your body will affect you later on down the road is really difficult to predict. * The whole hormonal cascade is extremely complex. * When people correct their underlying nutritional issues, usually within six to nine months, they should be able to come off all exogenous hormones. [06:25] Bad Things That Develop In Our Cells * The problem that will affect people first is mitochondrial issues. The mitochondria is a very high-energy place, it's supposed to produce lots of energy, but it can be screwed up fairly easily. The first thing that people feel is fatigue - that's that mitochondria sort of breaking down. * Later down the road, genetic issues will show up, and that’s when you start getting cancers. [09:15] Why Your Supplements Might Not Be Working * If you have an unhealthy cell membrane, things can't get in. * On average, the cell membrane is 50% fat. If you have abnormal fats in that cell membrane, that membrane becomes more like plastic. When you put plastic wrap on something, not a lot of stuff gets through. * So, you won't be able to get good things in very efficiently, and you won't be able to get the bad things out very efficiently. It's only a matter of time in that kind of situation until you have a total cell breakdown. [14:30] How Keto & Fasting Help Support The Cell Membrane * The brain is about 70% fat – it operates on keto about seven to eleven times more efficiently than on carbohydrates. * Fat-based energy production is way more efficient. * Every single one of our ancestors did keto because their environment forced them into it. * Once you achieve metabolic freedom and flexibility, your body can actually manufacture glucose from the fat and from protein. [18:20] Is Omega-6 Bad For You? * Omega-6 isn’t bad for you; processed omega-6 is bad for you. * Omega-6 has the same oxygen-binding capacity as hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is also intimately bound to the cell membrane; so, they work well together. * After people take the proper amount of omega-6, they feel better. Plus, they will be able to feel it fast. [21:10] The Issue With Fish Oil * Fish oil is high in EPA and DHA. They're what we call unsaturated are much more unstable. * Not only is fish oil too unstable for us, it's not really needed in very large quantities. * As it turns out, the brain only uses about seven and a half milligrams per day of EPA and DHA. * People on a high dose of fish oil will have a problem with nose bleeds – it’s an obvious example of fluidity. * If you overload yourself with fish oil, the mitochondria is only half as efficient as it should be. [34:55] Is Eating Fish Bad Too? * You can certainly eat fish. When you cook it, you're destroying the fats anyways. * It's the deepwater fish that are higher in EPA and DHA. * Fish have a lot of good nutrition in it unless it's been contaminated with heavy metals and stuff. In Japan, where they eat mostly raw fish, they do have higher rates of hemorrhagic strokes. * Fish that have fewer heavy metals are ones with a fast turnover like sardines. Tuna is a bad one because tuna will eat a lot of other fish and is lower on the food chain. [39:45] About Pure Form * Pure Form Omega® Natural is an organic, plant-based, fish-free, cold-pressed, source of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids. * It has been processed in a way that retains all the functions of the fat. * It is a proprietary formulation made up of primrose oil, sunflower seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, and organic extra virgin coconut oil. These are all excellent sources of essential omega-6, along with organic flaxseed oil for essential omega-3, to obtain what we consider the ideal omega 3-6 combination. [45:25] Good vs. Bad Sunflower Oil * If you look at the average sunflower oil, even organic sunflower oil that's on the shelf, it's not cold-pressed. Heat and oxygen are bad for fats. * When you do cold pressure, you actually lose about 20% of the oil. * You can put a processed oil on the shelf for years; it'll look the same. [51:20] Hangover Prevention * Since the brain is 70% fat, you put all the good fats in the brain, you don't get headaches. * Just another reason to love Pure Form Omega®. * However, most people will feel a little tired the next day because alcohol disturbs your sleep pattern. Luckily, you won't have the headache and all the other stuff that accompanies those hangovers. AND MUCH MORE!

What should someone with FH eat if they also have prediabetes? | Masterjohn Q&A Files #208
Question: What should someone with FH eat if they also have prediabetes? So first of all, it's a separable component of the diet so you need a low-saturated fat, low-cholesterol diet without necessarily eating a low-fat diet. Then second of all, the effect of that on blood lipids is dependent on the healthfulness of your insulin pathway. And so over time, that's something where you can play the balance between those two things and as you improve your blood glucose handling, you can fit in more carbohydrates to have a fuller dietary effect. For managing blood glucose, and I don't think it's a good idea to condemn all carbohydrates as a means of managing that. I think the best thing would be to get a continuous glucose monitor or a regular glucose monitor. If you're using a regular glucose monitor, use 30 minute, one hour, two hour, three hour, four hour time intervals after a meal and collect a baseline before a meal and look at how do different starches that you don't have an immunological response to... so you don't have to test grains because you don't tolerate them, but other foods that are rich in starches, whether it's carrots, or potatoes, or sweet potatoes, or whatever it is.
