“I will not be without bone broth. If I’m without everything else, I can live. But bone broth is my go-to.” — @drjoshaxe [0:08:53.1]

“Food is better. Supplements are second best.” — @drjoshaxe [0:08:22.2]

PMR Episode 170 Feature Image


Just like knowing someone’s history can help you understand them better, understanding your DNA can help you better understand your own body’s needs. On today’s show we talk with former Olympic athlete, Craig Pickering. Craig is a former Olympic sprinter and competed in four world championships and the 2008 Olympic Games before switching to bobsleigh and qualifying for the 2014 winter Olympics, making Craig only the eighth British person to be selected for both a summer and winter Olympic Games. There’s no doubt he’s got one heck of a good story and a ton of great insights on human performance to share.

Today Craig heads up another one of his passions called DNAFit. DNAFit uses genetic information to let us know what types of training, food and supplementation will help us maximize our health and athletic performance. We had a chance to take this test and learn all kinds of interesting things and in today’s interview, we get to use our results as an example for how to use this service.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • How Craig became a professional athlete.
  • Why Craig moved from the 100m Olympic sprint to British Bobsleigh.
  • What a bobsleigh is really like, and Craig’s experience.
  • Craig’s injury setback and how he got involved in DNAFit.
  • What DNAFit is and how DNAFit testing works?
  • How DNAFit helped Craig himself.
  • What we discovered using the DNAFit test.
  • Endurance versus power training. Which is best for me?
  • How to navigate your individual injury-risk level.
  • The most common diet recommendations that are given out through DNAFit.
  • What the caffeine gene is.
  • How to reduce trial and error by understanding your DNA.
  • How to quit fickle dieting plans for good!
  • Any much more!

“I had kind of a choice; either get a real job or find somebody else to pay me to do sports.” — @craig100m [0:05:04.1]

“Being in an actual bobsleigh was horrific.” — @craig100m [0:07:15.1]

“If we know what DNA we’ve got, we can change the training and diet we do to best suit our genetic makeup.” — @craig100m [0:10:53.1]

“The biggest issues around DNA testing is that people aren’t aware that you can do it and how valid it is.” — @craig100m [0:15:11.3]

“There is no good news or bad news, just actionable news.” — @craig100m [0:27:02.3]

“Having a better idea, at the start, of what works for you could be massively important.” — @craig100m [0:37:01.4]

PMR Episode 169 Feature Image


On today’s show we're talking to the founder of The New Primal, Jason Burke. Jason started making his own jerky because he needed a healthy option and it went well, and the rest is history. Now he’s offering that healthy option to all of us, at more than 6,000 locations around the US as well as online. This company makes grass fed, grass finished beef jerky as well as marinades, meat sticks and even cute, perfectly proportioned snack mates for the kiddie’s lunch boxes.

This company has helped change the public’s perception of jerky from an aggressive salted and sugared trucker treat that you pick up at the gas station to a healthful, nourishing snack that really anyone can enjoy. In today’s episode, we talk about his product, the growing pains of running a company as well as having a life and a lot more.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Jason's background and how he came to be where he is now.
  • How he continues to differentiate and set himself apart from new jerky companies.
  • What Jason’s jerky recipe consists of.
  • The kid specific products that are available at The New Primal.
  • How Jason has entered new market segments with his healthy jerky.
  • How the packaging is inclusive and not classic meathead kind style.
  • What product is the most popular product from The New Primal.
  • How Jason found and developed a relationship with his suppliers.
  • How the local market is starting to make steps into the direction of grass fed cows.
  • The challenges of sourcing poultry.
  • How he and his family maintain a healthy lifestyle and find a balance.
  • The new products that The New Primal has and what to look out for..
  • And much more!

“Paleo or not, we’re among the cleanest that you’ll get and we don’t skimp on animal welfare practices at all.” — @thenewprimal [0:08:38.1]

This week we’re talking with Laird Hamilton and Gabriel Reece, two of the most high functioning, successful and driven people we have ever met, about their lives together and how they work to establish a lifestyle, routine and community centered around happiness and health. They’re professional athletes. Laird is basically the king of surfing and Gabby is a former professional volleyball player, they’re both business owners and between them, they have their own documentaries, podcasts, books and more.

They run and host a fitness, wellness and recovery program called XPT where they travel to different locales and spend three days eating, surfing, meditating and working out with other likeminded folks. We had a chance to attend one of these experiences last summer—it was an absolutely singular inspiring experience that still informs the choices we make every day. In this interview, we talk about XPT, we talk about their super food company, a new documentary about Laird’s life and we talk about the way they eat, work out and their relationship with each other and with other people in their community.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • What exploration and performance training (XPT) is all about.
  • How Laird and Gabby find the balance between establishing a healthy routine while being able to adapt.
  • How life may seem effortless but it takes a lot of effort.
  • How values, priorities, meditation and having a hovering perspective helps Laird and Gabby maintain perspective on life.
  • Why it’s important to be appreciative in life.
  • How they incorporate family into XPT.
  • Future plans for XPT to evolve and grow.
  • Gabby’s Podcast, The Truth Barrel.
  • Their public life and the sometimes negative publicity that comes with that.
  • What is meant by one partner taking the masculine and the other the feminine.
  • Superfoods and products which are based on whole foods.
  • The Peruvian coffee bean that Laird also offers.
  • Laird and Gabby’s healthy eating habits.
  • The importance of not to putting a lot of stress around your diet.
  • Gabby’s NBC show called Strong.
  • How some people can be born with drive for life.
  • And much more!

“Some of the most profound things happen to be some of the simplest.” — @LairdLife [0:18:33.1]

“The more we can become connected to our intuitions and our instincts the better guided we’ll be.” — @LairdLife [0:36:12.1]

“Well you can’t voyeuristically get in shape. That’s the problem.” — @LairdLife [1:00:30.1]

Crowd Cow is a pretty cool new company that is changing the way we purchase our meat by providing high quality beef in a convenient new format. They use an online system where you can put money on a cow, basically becoming a “steak-holder”, get it? You can purchase as much as you want without having to split a cow with someone else and then find a place to store it all. The grass fed beef comes from small, sustainable, and independent ranches and we can tell you personally that the quality is awesome. It’s delivered frozen straight to your door, in individual sous vide-ready vacuum packs.

The whole process makes getting the best quality beef, the exact cuts you want and the quantities, easier than ever. So we figured this company is something that Paleo listeners or anyone who appreciates a good steak would be interested in. Today we’re talking to Joe Heitzeberg, the CEO of the company, about how he came to the idea and we learn a bit more about the process, about the beef, and about some of the interesting challenges involved in running a company like this.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Crowd Cow and how the company works.
  • The niche market that Crowd Cow serves.
  • The types of beef cuts they provide and where they are sourced from.
  • The different seasonalities of beef cuts that are available.
  • The challenges that they encountered as they brought Crowd Cow to the public.
  • The importance of getting in front of the right customer base.
  • The relationship that Crowd Cow builds with its ranchers.
  • How the team at Crowd Cow built an online community to offer information and resources.

“Any cow standing in a field could be called grass fed.” — @jheitzeb @crowdcowusa [0:14:19.1]

You’ve heard of the term “going off the grid”, but how many of us have actually contemplated doing it? An even fewer number made the necessary steps, truly living off the grid, even temporarily. Gary Collins is one of those rare folks, and he joins us on the podcast today. Gary is the creator of the Primal Power Method, a way to help people make better decisions to improve their health and importantly, simplify their life. The idea of simplifying your life is a topic we touch on a lot in this interview.

Gary is a college professor, health and wellness consultant and public speaker. He has worked in Military Intelligence, the US State Department, the US Department of Health and Human Services, and the US Food and Drug Administration as a special agent. Gary has written books on his own unique take on being healthy, including his latest book, Going Off the Grid. This is a fun podcast and one we know you're going to learn a lot from.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Gary’s company, Primal Power Method.
  • How Gary is teaching others to make life more enjoyable, easier and simpler.
  • How to value your time and be strategic with how much you give away fro free.
  • Gary’s definition of “deflected failure” and how it affects your success rate.
  • Gary’s book Going Off the Grid, and what it really means to live off the grid.
  • Why taking your time is essential for starting on the project of moving off the grid.
  • How Gary adventures around the country, and why he travels “by feel”.
  • Gary’s food and exercise regimen when he is traveling or at home.
  • Progressive steps you can take today to live more “off the grid.”
  • Why Gary believes that the only place to grow is when you are uncomfortable.
  • Why Gary’s purpose with his work is to attract people who are like-minded.

“There comes a point though where you only have so much time in the day.” — Gary Collins @PrimalMethod [0:10:34.1]

“You must take responsibility for yourself first.” — Gary Collins @PrimalMethod [0:11:21.1]

“Two things are eating at American’s fabric of intelligence; it’s social media and it’s stupid TV and their phones.” — Gary Collins @PrimalMethod [0:13:37.1]

“Rushing into an off the grid project is probably the worst possible thing you can do.” — Gary Collins @PrimalMethod [0:27:01.1]

If you are a little bit of a health nut and a little bit of a meat head like we are, then you have probably already heard about pureWOD, a supplement company offering protein powders, pre-workouts, post workouts, and greens that are made with only a few high quality ingredients. pureWOD has recently undergone a rebranding and is now called Equip, which we will get into a bit in our talk today with Dr. Anthony Gustin, who developed the company because he could not find what he was looking for in the market and wanted supplements that were the next best thing to food when food just is not convenient or available.

The company has taken off and he has since started a new one called Perfect Keto, offering exogenous ketone powders for those high-flying, bio-hacking keto folks who need help getting into or staying in ketosis. That’s kind of just the tip of the iceberg for Anthony. He is an authority in health and wellness and does a lot of self-experimentation with fasting, keto, and other stuff for his website and blog. He is very fun to follow on social media for that reason, and he is one of those guys that talking to him makes you feel a little bit lazy, but in a good way because he inspires you to do a little more experimenting and learning on your own.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • What Dr. Anthony does, and why he started his companies.
  • Why our bodies need different sources of protein and macronutrients.
  • The specific products provided by Dr. Anthony’s companies.
  • The biggest hole in the American diet as it pertains to micronutrients.
  • Dr. Anthony’s results of experimenting with fasting.
  • The challenges with a ketogenic diet and how it is very individualized.
  • Why you need to cut your protein intake significantly when doing a keto diet.
  • How exogenous ketones work and how they differentiate from endogenous ketones.
  • His typical day of eating and his preferred workouts on a ketogenic diet.

“Just getting people on the base level of eating real food is a really good place to start.” — @dranthonygustin [0:41:39.1]

PMR Episode 163 Feature Image


This is a special quick edition of the podcast because this week, we are heading to Paleo f(x), a health, nutrition, fitness, and wellness event that focuses on the Paleo lifestyle. It’s a three day event in Austin Texas May 19th to the 21st and it features hundreds of vendors with food, supplements, fitness gear and more, thousands of attendees from all over the place, all kinds of special events, workout opportunities, workshops and educational sessions and it’s a literal who’s who of world class experts in the Paleo community.

To learn a bit more about what we can expect with this year’s show, we managed to get the very busy founders of Paleo f(x), Michelle and Keith Norris to join us today. Keith is one of those few lucky souls who escaped corporate America and and was able to transition full-time into his passion for bettering lives by teaching the art and science of physical culture. Michelle is a former corporate warrior, trained chef, and multi-potentialite. Her personal health issues and struggles with the traditional medical system inspired her to take a new approach in how the world tackles health, wellness, and prosperity.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • The new sessions, presentations, and events lined up for Paleo f(x) 2017.
  • The vendor space and the delicious foods that will be available.
  • The schedule changes and feedback that has been implemented.
  • How Paleo f(x) has grown over the years as more people believed in the movement.
  • The speakers to expect at Paleo f(x) 2017.
  • The one thing that attendees shouldn’t miss about the show at Paleo f(x)
  • The one panel that Keith says is a must-attend event at Paleo f(x).

“One of our missions is to expose people who are just getting started or have new information to put out.” — @KeithNorris [0:13:01.1]

“One of the big things that we have noticed with Paleo f(x) is the social aspect of it.” — Michelle Noris @PaleoFX [0:16:51.1]

It’s girl talk time, or women talk we should say, because today we are talking to Stefani Ruper, the founder of Paleo for Women and the cohost of the Paleo Women Podcast. Stefani has been a main stay in the Paleo world since she started her website talking about her struggles with PCOS and other hormonal issues. She tends to focus less on prescriptive rules and more on ways to love yourself and have a healthy mind and body.

Stefani’s open, she’ll talk about real stuff, even if it’s uncomfortable, like acne, PMS, sexual health, and all the good stuff we really want to hear about, which is why we’re so glad she is on the show today. Stefani is also the author of a book called Sexy by Nature, acknowledging what most of us women already know, that our health and physiology is a bit more complicated than men’s. As such, we need to pay some extra attention to it rather than just following some blanket weight loss plan and hoping that will fix everything.

Today we are going to get into all of that and more and although there is plenty of girl power, anyone can enjoy this podcast because Stefani is just so fun to talk to and makes it easy for everyone to learn something.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • How Stefani was motivated to pursue philosophy studies.
  • The Paleo Women Podcast, and the topics they discuss.
  • Stefani’s tips on how to combat the ever present bodies image issues in our society.
  • The main topics Stefani covers on her blog and how she helps bring women issues to the forefront.
  • Why Stefani has adopted more of a balanced Paleo diet, and her thoughts on legumes and plant estrogens.
  • The ketogenic diet, and why it can be helpful for some, but unnecessary for others.
  • How Stefani prioritizes her sleep and keeps her self-care at the top of her list.
  • What Stefani has to say about what we can all do today to improve our lives.

“I realized that paleo was not going to make me live forever, and nothing will” — @PaleoforWomen [0:27:26.1]

“The future of health is going to be 80% psychological.” — @PaleoforWomen [0:33:03.1]

It turns out that going from working at NASA to launching a very popular collagen company may not be as big a step as you think. Today’s guest is Kurt Seidensticker, the founder of Vital Proteins, one of the biggest companies offering collagen products on the market today and we might be their biggest fans. Their grass fed whey and marine collagen products can make a huge difference in the health of your skin and nails and digestion, even your joints, which is great for those of us who work out a lot.

Collagen seems like a miracle product until you really learn more about it and then it makes a lot of sense why it does all of the great things that it does. But in any case, we’re a little bit obsessed with them. We are talking to Kurt today about the company, why collagen is so great, and he teases us with a bunch of new products that he will be showing at Paleo f(x) this year.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Kurt’s background and how Vital Proteins was started.
  • How Kurt went from being an aerospace engineer for NASA to starting a protein company.
  • The importance of collagen in our diet, and why we may not be getting enough.
  • How collagen is processed, what it is, and the major health benefits it brings.
  • The differences between the Vital Proteins products.
  • What sets Vital Proteins apart from other protein companies in the marketplace.
  • What a day in Kurt’s life looks like.
  • The new products that Vital Proteins will be showcasing at Paleo f(x).

“When you talk about collagen, you talk about a healthy lifestyle.” — Kurt Seidensticker [0:21:31.1]

The Hungry Brain is a new book from Stephan Guyenet, an obesity and neuroscience researcher. In his book, Stephan explains all about the complicated processes of the brain and body that leads us to behave the way we do with regards to eating and food, and how this can be problematic when taken into context with our modern world and our modern diet, which is a situation that’s very different from the world our ancestors lived in and the world in which our brains developed.

This book really resonates, we think, because so many of us feel out of control with our eating and don’t understand why we make the food choices we do or why we act the way we do or look the way we do when we so desperately want things to be different. This book is so important because it helps explain in very specific and scientific, yet clear terms, why our brain does what it does and the ways we can work to combat the very intelligent biological processes that in today’s world can make us fat, sick, and keep us caught in a negative cycle with our eating.

We’re really excited about our talk today with Stephan and think it will make us all feel more informed, more empowered, and more able to tackle what, on the surface, seems like a very simple task — eat well and be healthy — but is actually so much more complicated than we think. We really hope you get as much out of this episode as we did.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • The main goal and learning points of Stephan’s book, The Hungry Brain.
  • What is meant by the terms “sensory specific satiety” and “habituation”.
  • The progressive ratio test and it is used to test your motivational drive.
  • How the hypothalamus regulates body fat and how your set point can change with time.
  • How to transition to a diet that contains less hyper palatable foods.
  • Stephan’s typical diet on a day-to-day basis.
  • How sensory queues trigger the motivational circuits in our brains towards certain foods.
  • His thoughts on the whole abstainer versus moderator debate.
  • The effect that eating at all times of day has on your ability to lose weight.
  • How uncontrolled stress can effect our food intake behaviors.
  • Stephan’s top tips and strategies for tricking the brain to feel fuller on fewer calories.

“There are a lot of brain functions that we are not aware of and not in control of.” — @whsource [0:14:43.1]

“There is no other diet that is better at fattening rodents than palatable human foods.” — @whsource [0:24:30.1]

Is Milk Paleo? Does it matter? Is milk good for you? For those of us willing to eat the flesh and guts of many animals, is it really that much of a stretch to consume dairy products too? These are questions that may be a source of a lot of debate. However, considering a pretty big theme in nutrition these days, even in our ancestral health and nutrition, is about personalizing your diet with foods that make you feel and perform your best, some of you may still be into milk or at least willing to explore your options.

On the podcast today we are talking with Walid from Desert Farms, a company that sells pasture raised grass fed camel products in the US such as milk, meat, and even skin care. He gives us the low down on why camel milk is different and in his opinion, superior to cow’s milk. He talks about how his camels are raised and we also get into the different ways that camel products can be used like in chocolate and beauty products. We also talk about hump fat, so definitely tune to learn all about it.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • How Walid first had the idea to introduce Camel products to the US.
  • What makes camel milk different from cow’s milk and how they are inter-linked.
  • The difference between pasteurized and raw milk, and the fears that consumers face.
  • How hump fat will be their first meat line product.
  • The properties in camel milk that are helping people heal themselves.
  • What is to come for Desert Farms in the near future.

“For everyone that basically has missed their dairy, their real milk, this is a perfect alternative for them.” — @WalidAbdulWahb [0:14:43.1]

“Supplementing camel’s milk on a Paleo or elimination diet helps significantly with people with autoimmunity..” — @WalidAbdulWahb [0:18:02.1]

OUR MISSION
To restore our health, strength and vitality by providing history's healthiest whole food nutrients to the modern world.

We’re talking to Nora Gedgaudas on the podcast today. Many of you are probably already familiar with her name. She is a Paleo expert with a number of bestselling books like Primal Body, Primal Mind and Rethinking Fatigue. Nora is a board certified nutritional consultant and clinical neuro feedback specialist with the practice in Portland, Oregon. She is a speaker and educator with her own podcast as well as being a regular at Paleo f(x). Nora has a new book out called Primal Fat Burner that talks about a fat based ancestral diet that helps you live longer and be leaner and healthier.

Now, while the term ketogenic diet is probably familiar to many of you, this book covers topics that even we did not know. In today’s episode, we get into the biological basis for this type of eating and how it can benefit everyone from high level athletes to those dealing with a whole host of health issues, and everyone in between. Nora schools us on things like how much protein you should actually be eating. Spoiler alert, it’s probably pretty different than you think. So let’s get right into it, and learn more about Nora.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript 

In our conversation we discuss:

  • How Nora discovered a fat rich diet while observing wolves in the tundra.
  • What sparked her to question our modern day diets from observing others.
  • Why some people may need to approach the ketogenic lifestyle differently than others.
  • Why being in a fat based ketogenic diet requires a protein sparing approach.
  • If the ketegenic diet has different implications for women.
  • Why a dependence on glucose is the truly unnatural form of metabolism.
  • Why our inability to eat meat is an indication of how far removed we are from our natural environment.
  • Why there are some vital components that cannot be substituted by a plant-base diet.
  • The strategies that can help you transition gradually into a ketogenic diet.

“The fact of the matter is that a fat based ketogenic approach is extremely protein sparing.” — @NoraGedgaudas [0:16:40.1]

“Ultimately what you want to do, the name of the game is making your own ketones by eliminating carbs.” — @NoraGedgaudas [0:48:29.1]

She uses free-trade ingredients and even Tallow from grass fed cows from her own farm, so it is a pretty cool story.

Finally, we talk about some of Bethany’s Paleo practices, foods, and other healthy products that she’s in to. So stay tuned to learn more about what to put on your skin for better health and wellness.

  • Bethany’s favorite products and tips for staying moisturized.
  • What it means to produce and market a skincare brand towards men.
  • How Bethany practices health and wellness outside of skincare.

“I was just using coconut oil and baking soda on my armpits, and that worked great for me.” — Bethany McDaniel [0:20:56.4]

Everyone’s talking about Four Sigmatic; Time Magazine, Vogue, Forbes, even the New York Times. This super food company’s goal is to popularize medicinal mushrooms by incorporating them in popular products like coffee and hot coco. Basically, they’re nicely tricking us into eating what’s good for us already. Their products launched in the US market in 2015 and are now sold in more than 25 countries.

Today’s interview is with the founder Tero Isokauppila, president of Four Sigmatic. Tero grew up in a farm in Finland where he foraged for mushrooms and learned about natural foods from an early age and he later got a degree in chemistry and a certificate in plant based nutrition from Cornel University. He’s an authority on super foods and natural health and he was chosen as one of the world’s top 50 food activists by the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. So if you’re into food and bio hacking, definitely stay tuned. You’ll never look at mushrooms the same way again.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript 

In our conversation we discuss:

  • The products Four Sigmatic offers and what they do for people.
  • The unique properties of each type of mushroom used in Four Stigmatic’s products.
  • The origins of medicinal mushrooms and their ideal growing environments.
  • Why it is important to understand where your food comes from, even with mushrooms/fungi.
  • What mycotoxins and aflatoxins are and why mushroom companies need to be aware of them.
  • Mushroom allergies, and how you may not be allergic to these medicinal mushrooms.
  • How the way mushrooms are grown can affect how they impact your gut health.
  • Why it is not recommended to take medicinal mushrooms while on antibiotics.
  • What needs to be done in the industry to educate people on the benefits of medical mushrooms.
  • The possible benefits medicinal mushrooms have for treating cancer in patients.
  • The recommended dose for the average person or general cross-fitter.
  • Tero’s suggestion for what product to try first if you are just starting out with mushrooms.

“Medicinal mushrooms are extremophiles so they grow in extreme climates.” —  Tero Isokauppila [0:13:34.8]

“The promise of some compounds in mushrooms having antiviral and anti-tumor properties is very fascinating.” —  Tero Isokauppila  [0:35:24.0]

I think many of us Paleo folks have already learned that one of the biggest challenges in being healthy is that our modern world seems stacked against us and at odds with our biological wiring. Our world, which we are very lucky to inhabit, encourages us to eat processed unhealthy food, encourages us to sit and watch TV rather than walk and play, and to scroll on our phone all night rather than sleep.

The knowledge of this modern world with all its amazing technology and comfort is also the source of much of our current physical and mental challenges, but that isn’t an excuse to let go and be as sedentary and unhealthy as possible. Instead, this information can help to empower us to be mindful of our choices and educate ourselves about better ways to live. Ways that more closely aligned with what makes each of us feel good and healthy. Today on the podcast, Robb Wolf is here to discuss his new book, Wired to Eat. Robb is one of the original leaders of the Paleo movement, he is a former research biochemist, a health expert, and bestselling author of The Paleo Solution.

In today’s episode, we talk about why most diets fail and why another diet is not the answer. We dive into rewiring our bodies, a lot about carbs, and we also get into the ketogenic diet. I also bug him about his own personal training and eating routines. Robb is a ridiculously smart human being and he is also super down to earth and friendly. So I really hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript 

In our conversation we discuss:

  • Robb’s inspiration to write his new book, and how he planned to change lives.
  • How to reframe and change your mindset of guilt-based thinking about food.
  • Why it is important that our human tendencies are rewarded for movement towards favorable outcomes.
  • The carb test and how it can help determine which carbs are best suited for you.
  • The ketogenic diet, the caveats, and who it is best suited for.
  • The use of exogenous ketones and Robb’s thoughts on their use overall.
  • How to seamlessly cater for a family with different eating requirements.
  • His eating and exercise routines, and what they typically look like.

“Continually eating poor food choices could get us sick; it could stick us in an early grave.” — @robbwolf [0:16:50.0]

“You can get buried under data that gives you no actionable insights.” — @robbwolf [0:59:06.0]

The internet is often seen as the cause of and solution to all of life’s problems. Wi-Fi is basically everywhere these days and it is pretty convenient. Most people think it's a good thing, but wireless radiation can also be harmful, especially to young people and those who are sensitive to it. Educating ourselves about the pros and cons of our increasingly wireless world is critical, and today’s guest is going to help us with that.  Alison Main is a freelance writer who focuses on environmental health and illness, wireless radiation, electromagnetic safety, chemical safety, and technology addiction. She’s also a regular contributor to Paleo Magazine. In our chat today, Alison explains exactly what EMF and wireless radiation is and why it can be harmful. She talks about the sneaky ways it can show up in our lives and most importantly, she provides easy ways we can reduce our exposure to wireless radiation right away, while also easing off on that pesky technology addiction that many of us are guilty of. So it’s time to sit back, relax, power down, and listen to our chat with Alison Main.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript 

In our conversation we discuss:

  • How Alison came to study the issues around wireless tech.
  • What EMF is and how to know whether or not you are hyper sensitive to it.
  • Alison's message in her article featured in Paleo Magazine.
  • Why children are more vulnerable to EMF sensitivities.
  • Simple tips to reduce wireless radiation in your home.
  • Why having Wi-Fi everywhere may not be such a good thing.
  • The baby steps you can take to reduce your overall EMF exposure.
  • The “safe” distance to stay from your phone.
  • Tips on how to find a balance between being paranoid or not being aware at all.

Maybe you've struggled with the ethical implications of eating meat. Maybe you found yourself at a loss trying to explain how a Paleo diet complete with animal protein can be healthy and good for the world. Or maybe you’ve just daydreamed about what it would be like to live on a farm with your family, surrounded by delicious fresh food. If you’re nodding your head at any of this, today’s episode is for you. Diana Rodgers is on the podcast today. She is a real food licensed registered dietician and nutritional therapy practitioner living on a working organic farm in the Boston area.

All right Paleo Nation, we've got a new host, Ashleigh VanHouten, on the mic and today's guest is none other than former PMR host, Tony Federico. He has now transitioned into the role of VP of Marketing for Natural Force, an all-natural supplement company. We're going to talk about his new job, the importance of prioritizing, what he has learned during his time talking to so many of the Paleo industry’s best and brightest, and what’s cooking over at Natural Force, the vision they have for the company, as well as some new things that are coming up. Tony also gives some great advice like why falling off your bike, both literally and figuratively, could be a good thing and passes the “podcast torch,” reflecting on some of his best moments and leaving Ashleigh with his final words of wisdom.

In our conversation we discuss:

  • How Paleo Magazine was like a beacon of light in Tony’s transition to the Paleo lifestyle.
  • How Tony got the opportunity to be VP of Marketing for Natural Force.
    Why Natural Force supplements are different and really stand apart.
  • Tony's perspective on whether to supplement or not.
  • What a day in his new work life looks like at Natural Force.
  • Some new developments at Natural Force (and a sneak peak at product launches!)
  • Tony’s opinion on whether the term “Paleo” has hit its peak.
  • Tony's best moments as host of Paleo Magazine Radio.
  • Tony’s final parting words to Ashleigh, as the new host of Paleo Magazine Radio.

Steve Sashen has always been an energetic, athletic, and entrepreneurial guy. In high school he was an all-american sprinter, and while studying film in college, he did stand up comedy on the side. After graduating with his masters in film, he went on to develop word processing software for script-writers that became industry standard.

Steve stayed active throughout his life, trying things like circus acrobatics and competitive jump roping, but nothing really scratched his itch until he rediscovered his passion for running, and specifically sprinting. A friend introduced him to the world of Masters Track and Field, and for a time, he was having the time of his life.

Eventually, a string of devastating injuries forced Steve to pump the brakes, and while searching for a solution he found himself going on a completely bare foot run with the Boulder Colorado barefoot running club. As the miles ticked by, Steve explored the information his shoe-free feet provided, and in doing so, altered his gait and mechanics such that he didn't even realize that he had run farther than he ever had in his life.

That very first barefoot run lit a spark that changed the course of Steve's life forever and on today's Paleo Radio Bite, we discuss how.

It's in your pocket, in your ears, and it's even in the very air you breathe, but we're not talking about a chemical or biological organism, we're talking about EMF.

EMF is an acronym for Electric and Magnetic Fields. Naturally occurring EMF fields are generated by the earth and the sun, and as such, humans have been exposed to these fields since before we were humans. As with many things however, human ingenuity and innovation has led to the development of technologies that are changing the natural EMF environment.

Power lines, cell phones, computers, wifi routers, microwave ovens, and numerous other electronic devices generate evolutionarily novel EMF fields, and the question we must ask is whether or not these new sources of EMF cause long term harm and contribute to disease.

According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, "the few studies that have been conducted on adults show no evidence of a link between EMF exposure and adult cancers, such as leukemia, brain cancer, and breast cancer." They assert that the frequency of EMF emitted by household appliances is "non ionizing" and therefore relatively benign as opposed to the "ionizing" radiation of x-rays and gamma rays that have well documented harmful effects. Despite these assertions however, there are many anecdotal accounts of health issues related to low frequency EMF exposure.

On today's show, we talk to a former Silicon Valley engineer named Jeromy Johnson who experienced a health crisis after wireless "smart" electrical meters were installed below his San Francisco home. Jeromy's "wireless wake up call" has led him to become an electrical health advocate and he believes that managing our exposure to EMF will become an increasingly essential ancestral health strategy.

In our conversation we discuss:

  • The unforeseen consequences of "the internet of things".
  • The symptoms of EMF exposure.
  • The potential long term effects on reproductive health and cancer risk that EMF presents.
  • Tips for reducing your exposure to EMF.
  • Digital detoxes.
  • How to use technology safely.
  • Why he decided to speak up about his experiences with an EMF related illness.
  • What it was like to tell 2000 technology enthusiasts at TEDx that there might be a downside to inundating our environment and our bodies with EMF.

Digestive issues like gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) affect millions of people and cost billions of dollars in lost work and health care expenses each year. 

In the search for relief, afflicted individuals often suffer through invasive colonoscopies, dangerous immune suppressing drugs, and even surgical removal of their colon, but what if the the answer was as simple as only eating potatoes for just a few days?

This might sound ridiculous, but according to Tim Steele, author of The Potato Hack, a short-term mono-diet of plainly cooked potatoes can strengthen your immune system, improve sleep, and even lead to weight loss by feeding beneficial gut bacteria, combating inflammation, and resetting your relationship to food. 

Tim isn't even the first person to make these claims, he got the idea for a potato fast after reading about an 1849 diet prescribed to people who were "living too luxuriously" and who became overweight and "dyspeptic" as a result. More recently, both the magician Penn Jillette, as well as an Australian man named Andrew Taylor, have credited potato fasts for helping them to lose over 100lbs each. 

On today's Paleo Radio Bite, we phone in to Tim at his home in North Pole, Alaska, to find out more about his book The Potato Hack and how the much maligned tuber might be a health food after all.

According to Zevia CEO Paddy Spence, fighting for smarter food options for consumers against large, established competitors is the riskiest career move he ever made, but he's not one to shy away from a fight, or to let fear of failure prevent him from taking a risk.

Growing up with a single mom who struggled to make ends meat, but always made a point to feed her kids the best food she could buy, Paddy knew that he wasn't going to get any handouts and any success he had would come from dedication and hard work.

He studied Greek and Latin in high school and used his unique specialization to get the interest of the college administrators at Harvard where he paid his way by delivering boxes for UPS. After graduating from Harvard Business School with his MBA, he went on to work for companies like Kashi, and Levlad, a personal care manufacturer that makes natural shampoos and soaps. He also founded SPINS, a health and wellness marketing firm.

While working at Levlad, Paddy came across a stevia sweetened soda called Zevia, and was inspired to find out more about the company. He ended up buying the the small startup and has since led Zevia to over $100 million dollars in annual revenue, and that's with products that are artificial color free, artificial flavor free, corn syrup free, GMO free and naturally sweetened. 

On today's show, we are joined by Paddy Spence to discuss his career, his life, and how he's trying to revolutionize the diet soda industry.
