This week’s guest is the adventurous Stephen Le, author of 100 Years of Food. This conversation is jam-packed with incredible anecdotes from Stephen’s many travels to foreign countries, including the most memorable meals he has had. Stephen tells us all about hitchhiking through Malaysia, blending in with the locals, eating insects and fermented shark, and about the chili-loving dogs in Mexico. We get serious about the dangers of eating too much of the same vegetable, how the agricultural revolution affected our nutrition, and what we can do today to combat obesity. Stephen shares what he has learned about the impact of different climates on our health, including what he has discovered about the complicated balance between too little and too much sun exposure. He gives us helpful information about knowing how much sunlight each skin type requires, why we might need more parasites around, and why our red meat intake should increase as we get older. Tune in to hear this exhilarating conversation!

“When you actually dive deeper into what is this unease that people are increasingly feeling about technology, it’s not as much about the technology as you would think.” — Cal Newport [0:09:03.5]

“This is a big reason why people today feel uneasy if they can't really put their finger on it.” — Cal Newport [0:14:22.8]

“It's a combination of things you step away from completely, plus things that you have very clear specifications for how you're supposed to use it, that gets you as close as possible to not using it.” — Cal Newport [0:51:07.3]

This episode is a relatively quick one and has no guests, but we promise it is still filled with useful information packaged in a small, digestible format.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • The link between Paleo and TMAO (trimethylamine N-oxide).
  • What TMAO is and how TMAO levels are determined.
  • Two primary reasons why TMAO and animal proteins are not a concern.
  • TMAO’s U-shaped association with mortality.
  • The poor correlation between TMAO and heart disease.
  • The effects of TMAO in fish—should you be concerned?
  • The best way to implement a Paleo diet.
  • Why feeding the microbiome is critical to health.
  • Getting enough fiber on a low-carbohydrate diet.
  • And so much more!

Tweetables:

“Correlation, we must always remember, does not equal causation.” — @paleomagazine [0:09:30.1]

“It’s not the beef in the burger that’s the problem. The problem is the white bun, the fries cooked in hydrogenated oils, and the sugar-sweetened soda likely to come with the beef.” — @paleomagazine [0:14:34.1]
