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.

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.

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. She runs an active nutrition practice where she helps people get on track with diet and lifestyle. She’s also an author of a number of books, hosts The Sustainable Dish Podcast, and she’s a wife and mother of two. Diana is consulting dietician to several gyms and has worked with pretty much everyone in the Paleo world including Robb Wolf, the folks at Whole 30, and Dr. Kirk Parsley. Last but not least, she’s a staff writer for your fave, Paleo Magazine.

In our conversation we discuss:

  • Diana's trip to Costa Rica and the food she ate there.
  • How Diana and her family “re-entered real life” after a vacation.
  • A day in her family's life on an organic farm.
  • How to combat misinformation about adopting a healthy diet.
  • Why Diana does not portray herself as a Paleo evangelist.
  • Why it is important to start out simple, not with gourmet meals.
  • What it means to identify your trigger foods and how to avoid overeating.
  • The ethical and environmental issues behind bananas.
  • “The dark side of chocolate” and how child slavery is involved.
  • Diana's new book with Robb Wolf.
