Episode 100: Dr. Tim Noakes

2020-04-0601:10:233

For our one-hundredth episode we have a very special guest joining us—Dr. Tim Noakes. Dr. Noakes has had a profound impact on the low-carb movement, having helped to pave the way for doctors and nutritionists by standing firm against the tide of dangerous conventional notions about health in South Africa. Facing severe opposition from the medical establishment, Dr. Noakes ultimately succeeded in defending the legitimacy of his position. In this episode, we discuss his journey and talk about metabolic health, COVID-19, and the Noakes Foundation. Thanks for listening along for one-hundred episodes!

Today we are joined by Forage Agronomist and Ruminant Nutritionist, Dr. Peter Ballerstedt. His main message for us today is simply this: there is no sustainable food system without ruminant animal agriculture. Ruminant animals (like cows), have gotten a bad rap (from an environmental and a dietary perspective) for a long time, but Dr. Ballerstedt is here to show us the facts—and those facts run quite contrary to the popular perspective. We discuss no-till farming, cover crops, and the importance of soil health, all the while making connections between these agricultural topics and human health/general well-being. We also discuss the contention that, from a food-ethics perspective, the lowest possible amount of organisms are harmed by human agriculture (all things considered) when people eat large herbivores.   Contact Info:   Dr. Peter Ballerstedt Website: http://grassbasedhealth.blogspot.com/ Twitter and Instagram: @grassbased Facebook: Grass Based Health Dr. Brian Lenzkes: Website: http://www.lowcarbadvisor.com/ Dr. Tro Kalayjian: Website: https://www.doctortro.com/
We are so excited to have Dr. Cate Shanahan back on the show to talk about her brand new book, The Fatburn Fix. The central message of the book is this: your body’s ability to burn its own body fat is the most important aspect of your metabolism and your health in general! If your body is not burning your body fat, then you are headed toward disease. Dr. Shanahan explains how not burning your body fat is the precursor to many, many ailments. We discuss the horrible effects of seed oils on the body and offer suggestions for alternative, clean burning fat sources.  Contact Info: Dr. Cate Shanahan: Book: The Fatburn Fix Book Website: https://fatburnfix.com/ Cate’s Website: https://drcate.com/ Diet Doctor CME: https://www.dietdoctor.com/cme Dr. Brian Lenzkes: Website: http://www.lowcarbadvisor.com/ Dr. Tro Kalayjian:  Website: https://www.doctortro.com/
We are joined today by martial arts expert and overall inspiring guy, Kyoshi Thomas Clifford. We invited him on today to share some wisdom related to living intentionally and successfully through the current COVID-19 pandemic. We cover the importance of providing yourself and your children with structure in the midst of what is, for many people, a less-structured time. In such a time we ought to lead by example—be a victor, not a victim. Now is the time to stay strong, not just for yourself but for your community. To distill the message down to a single phrase, Kyoshi is telling us to persevere in personal responsibility in all aspects of life. We talk more specifically about persevering in the fight for good health. We have a golden opportunity right now to start developing some disciplines. Will you come out of this situation healthier, happier, and better than before, or will you retreat from discipline and be self-indulgent? We talk about all kinds of strategies for kicking addictions as well. Thanks for tuning in!

In this episode, Nadia also tells us more of the story of her journey--beginning with her work as a medical director in Mozambique and what she learned there about the connection between fertility and low-carb dieting. We discuss the power and simplicity of lifestyle intervention in the treatment of PCOS, diabetes, and many other diseases. We discuss “dopamine fasting” as it relates to those struggling with becoming free from sugar and carbohydrate addiction. We also talk about how one can use fasting aids effectively. Over the course of this episode, the message is continually this: eat foods that lowers your insulin and do not eat foods that raise it!

We are joined on the podcast today by Dr. Gary Shlifer and Brian Sanders. These two have been doing some amazing, groundbreaking things in the world of nutrition.

Much of our discussion centers around formulating an in depth answer to the question, “what are the elements of the real human diet?” Additionally, we talk about the history of disease treatment—examining how methodologies for the treatment of diabetes and other diseases have come in and out of prominence over the years.

Today we are joined by Dr. Gurpreet Padda, a man of great learning and with a great interest in metabolic health and nutrition. He became interested in metabolic health when he noticed that, woking in adult pain at the time, 91% of his patients were overweight. Through observation and experimentation, he noticed that metabolic inflammation was at the epicenter of pain, addiction, and obesity. Ever since that realization, he has continued to work toward sharing his findings and increasing his understanding of the issue. His work led him ultimately to understand that social isolation is an extremely significant factor in addiction/overeating. We also discuss in detail the metabolic impact of various foods, the importance of insulin as a marker for disease, and the importance of achieving satiety in the process of recovering from food addiction.

What an awesome podcast. It fires me up to try and spread the word as much as I can. I was diagnosed as diabetic last summer, and now it is reversed. I am not a medical professional, but I want to help with the message. I will be sharing this with a neurologist appointment in July, the person who diagnosed my diabetic state. My hope is that I can just get his attention enough to even check out Dr. Noakes, Fung, Lenzkes and Kalajian. Hopefully medicine will look at Diabetes the way they have this world pandemic virus and start taking it seriously.
