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.

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]

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]

What you put on your body is pretty important too and, like your food, it's important to make smart, educated decisions about the products you choose to help support your skin health.

She uses free-trade ingredients and even Tallow from grass fed cows from her own farm, so it is a pretty cool story. On today’s show we are going to talk about what it’s like to start a farm with with no experience, and start your own natural skin care company, also with no experience. 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.
