Episode 12: BCAAs
If you’ve ever stepped foot in a supplement store or a gym, I can probably safely assume that someone’s tried to sell you a BCAA supplement. But why? Why are they everywhere? Do you need it? What does the acronym even STAND for? I’ll explain the acronym, their function, where to find them, and how to use them. In less than 15 minutes. You’re welcome. Click me for show notes!

Episode 10: The Blood Type Diet
In his book “Eat Right For Your Type” some doctor claims that you need to eat different foods based on your blood type. It has sold over 7 million copies worldwide AND the title contains an internal rhyme so the allure is real. BUT is the science behind his claims real? Do we have a rich body of scientific literature supporting this proposition? Are books like this subject to peer review before being published? (no) This is quite possibly the shortest episode I will ever record, leaving you plenty of time to, I don’t know, share a screenshot of the podcast on social media and/or leave a review or something… Click me for show notes!

Episode 9: MSG
Monosodium L-Glutamate (or MSG for those short on time) is responsible for providing the umami flavour found in most tasty foods. Umami means “essence of deliciousness” in Japanese and, quite frankly. I couldn’t have put it better myself. But what sort of impact does this “essence of deliciousness” have on your health? Is it worth the cost of admission? Are you a rodent? Click me for show notes!

Episode 5: Sugar
As we ALL know, sugar is the worst thing we can possibly put in our bodies. It is literally poison. Worse than hard drugs. Leading cause of obesity, death and taxes. Or maybe... you should have a listen 🙂 Click me for show notes!

Episode 4: Food Sensitivity Tests
It's time we talk food sensitivity tests! Although I kind of give the game away at the beginning of the episode, make sure you listen to the whole thing so you can hear me just barely pronouncing "immunoglobulin" far too many times. Click me for show notes!

Episode 3: Red Meat
This episode covers red meat consumption, arguably the most confusing, misrepresented topic in nutrition. It's not black and white, so you're just going to have to listen to the whole thing. Sorry. Click me for show notes!

Episode 1: The Alkaline Diet
My favourite thing to talk about just so happens to be topical right now thanks to the BS that is COVID-19, so I figured I'd strike while the iron is hot. This episode will give you the background of the diet, the proposed mechanisms and my (scientific) standpoint. Enjoy! Click me for show notes!
