Description

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Peak HUman podcast, I’m Brian Sanders and I hope everyone is doing well and eating a Sapien diet and living that Sapien lifestyle. I guess I’ll clarify what that is. Many people are already doing it without realizing it - I’m just trying to give it a name. It’s really just what seems to be the natural human diet. It’s a framework and isn’t the same for everyone and changes based on many factors such as where you live to where you are in your life or health journey. It’s based on whole foods, ancestral principles and food preparation techniques. It focuses on the best, most bioavailable, nutrient dense nutrition which is from animal foods. It incorporates the least toxic plant foods. It’s not carnivore, keto, paleo, or Whole 30 but has elements of these. I hate to have labels but none of the other dietary labels fit what I believe is a pretty basic framework for human nutrition. The lifestyle component is big as well and includes all the natural ways humans have always stayed healhty like getting outdoors and adequate sun, sleep, a form of movement, and so on. 

This is such a cool episode because Dr. Van Vliet’s research is a brilliant intersection of 2 topics that should be near and dear to the hearts of everyone listening - how animals are raised affects the nutrient profile of the meat and how this in turn affects human health. He uses cutting edge science to go beyond the 3 macros, or 13 vitamins & minerals listed on nutrition labels, to up to 70,000 secondary compounds found in food. He also is working on a much-anticipated study (maybe only to me and those listening) which is randomized controlled and looks at red meat in the context of a healthy diet! How cool is that! This is what we’ve all wanted for so long. Compare eating red meat in the context of a whole foods diet compared to eating it with a bunch of processed foods that would be thought of as a Standard American Diet.

Get ready to meet your new best friend in the nutrition research field. I’m so glad Dr. Van Vliet is doing this research and that he spent a solid 90 minutes with me exploring much of it. Get ready for a good one!
