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.

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]
