This week, we’re talking about digestive health with an expert who has had more than her fair share of digestive health challenges. Aglaée Jacob is a registered dietician and nutritionist with more than 12 years’ experience. She is the author of Digestive Health With Real Food, and she has suffered from IBS, CEBO, and PCOS. In addition to that, she overcame nearly two decades of disordered eating, poor body image and binge eating disorder. She has a lot of experience and has done a lot of hard work in her past. She’s now passionate about helping people who are struggling with these health issues—especially helping women heal their relationship with food and their bodies—and that’s where the book came from. In this episode, we touch on an array of fascinating topics linked to digestive health. Everything from stomach acid, to cleansing waves, to probiotics and prebiotics, to the seven different types of poop you can have! But one of the key takeaways from this episode is around mindfulness of your food, of the eating process, and of your body. Aglaée also shows us where to start, how to start, and how to effectively implement an elimination diet, and she tells us why this process is so important for anyone with gut health issues. So take a listen to this episode, and remember to chew your food!

On this week’s episode, we welcome Jeff Warren, meditation teacher and co-author of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics. Being human takes practice, as someone wise once said. We all know that life isn’t easy, and sometimes just existing doesn’t come as naturally to us as we would like it to. But the truth is we could all use a little help when it comes to practicing being human, and meditation is a tool that is becoming more and more useful for people from all walks of life. But let’s say you’re like Jeff was before he got into meditation and think it’s all a bit hippy-woo-woo, or you just simply struggle to do it. Well, Jeff is here to show us that meditation doesn’t have to be someone sitting and staring at a candle for two hours. In this episode, Jeff offers honest and accessible advice about mindfulness and meditation and shows us how to incorporate these deliberate practices into our daily lives.

Today on the show, I am speaking with newly minted doctor Ryan Lowery—the president and co-founder at the Applied Science and Performance Institute and the coauthor of The Ketogenic Bible. Let’s be honest, what’s up with people eating bacon smothered in grilled cheese and calling it Keto? Is that what Keto is for most people today, and if so, why do we need this diet? You’ve been hearing it and seeing it and probably even smelling it everywhere, right? Keto-keto-keto! In this episode, don't skim the surface of something that’s trending, but rather dig deep into the science of this lifestyle and diet to see whether it’s all it’s cracked up to be. We sink our teeth into controversial Keto questions and topics, including Keto from an ancestral perspective, fat adaption, Carnivore Keto, intermittent fasting and Exogenous Ketones, and so much more. 

We also attempt to tackle the big protein versus carbs conundrum and discover why Keto is anything but a short-term fix for your health. Despite “Bible” being a pretty dogmatic word in the book’s title, Ryan is anything but dogmatic. Ryan acknowledges that different diets work for different people, especially when it comes to being fat adapted, and that even Keto looks different for different people. So, is Keto all bacon smothered in grilled cheese like we see on Instagram? Or is there more to it that that? By the end of this episode, you will have been introduced to a whole new world of Keto, and you'll see that it is so much more than that. If you’ve been on the Keto fence for a while, this episode is packed with knowledge that will expand your horizons. 

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Find out how The Ketogenic Bible started out as a passion project in 2002.
  • Should Keto be a life-long lifestyle and nutrition program or only temporary?
  • Find out more about following Keto from an ancestral perspective.
  • The importance of being metabolically flexible and fat adapted.
  • Ryan shares the best ways to become more insulin sensitive.
  • The big Keto question: Is protein more controversial than carbs?
  • What happens when fats don’t keep you full (like everyone says they should)?
  • Ryan shares his thoughts on Carnivore Keto and who it might work for.
  • It’s not all bacon and melted cheese: Why there are many other ways to do Keto.
  • A general day for Ryan in terms of eating and working out.
  • Eating for performance versus eating for performance and longevity.
  • Find out why Ryan wants to see Ketogenic therapies being used in contact sports.
  • Discover why Ryan believes that carbs should be viewed as a tool rather than the devil.
  • Who does chloric restriction and intermittent fasting work for? Ryan’s views.
  • Fasting during the day versus at night and why Ryan recommends the latter.
  • Exogenous Ketones: Why they were invented and the purpose they serve.
  • Ryan’s advice for starting Keto—and for those about to give up!
  • And much more!

On this week’s episode we welcome Dr. Becky Campbell, the author of The 30-Day Thyroid Reset Plan. Dr. Campbell talks to us all about her book and her holistic philosophy towards health and wellness. She explains the importance of the thyroid gland and how deeply it affects our physical and mental health. Until recently, the thyroid has not been given a lot of attention from the medical community, and it still seems to be emerging as something that is accepted as a huge determinant for human health. Dr. Campbell explains some of the reasons for this and also covers how her own health issues led her on a journey of discovery that ended with her a becoming a functional health practitioner. She takes us through the symptoms of unhealthy thyroid activity and explains the differences in how this can manifest. Our guest gives us some insight into Hashimoto’s disease and then offers some basic strategies for preparing and repairing these issues. This interview serves as a great introduction to her book, which we at Paleo Magazine Radio highly recommend!

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Dr. Campbell’s background and early interest in health.
  • How her own health problems led her to discover functional medicine.
  • An introduction to the thyroid and its functions in our bodies.
  • Conventional medical thyroid testing and what it is typically missing.
  • Signs and symptoms that mean you should go for thyroid testing.   
  • Some of the reasons thyroid dysfunction occurs.
  • The strange gender bias of thyroid patients that Dr. Campbell experiences.
  • Differences between hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
  • Dr. Campbell explains Hashimoto’s disease and its common triggers.
  • The problem with treating thyroid symptoms instead of the underlying issues.
  • Common lifestyle factors that contribute to the state of our thyroid function.
  • Dr. Campbell’s meal plan and the dietary side of thyroid health.
  • A quick cheat sheet of healthy and unhealthy foods for the thyroid.
  • The timeline of turning your body around to healthy thyroid function.
  • A few last thoughts on holistic health and managing stress.
  • And much more!
