    #163 - When Do Ketone Esters Work Best? Making Sense of Conflicting Data on Exogenous Ketones · Research Roundup

    "Exogenous ketosis impacts neither performance nor muscle glycogen breakdown in prolonged endurance exercise".

    This is the title of a recent study on exogenous ketones impact on performance, and published by Professor Peter Hespel in The Journal of Applied Physiology.

    However, previous seminal research, including a study from Prof. Hespel himself and published in the same journal, found results that were strikingly different.

    How does one make sense of conflicting (or neutral, at best) data?

    #162 - The Sapien Diet: Adopting Ancestral Principles, Avoiding Food Lies, & Modern Nutrition Science · Brian Sanders (@Peak Human)

    "That's how [Game Changers] made a whole film, they cherry-picked their data...I'd love to make a film that couldn't be debunked. That's my whole goal."

    Nutrient density, millions of years of human evolution, and modern nutrition science is the framework for the "Sapien Diet". Not to be mistaken as a trendy "one size fits all" diet, but a set of guidelines and principles Brian Sanders (of the Peak Human Podcast & Food Lies Film) believes how the modern human should eat.

    #161 - The Man Behind #LancetGate: A Breaking Science Scandal with Global Ramifications · James Todaro, MD

    13 days after publishing a paper on hydroxychloroquine (a potential drug for coronavirus treatment), The Lancet retracted the study due to faulty data.

    In the midst of a global pandemic, studies (that have since been retracted) were used as a basis for the guidelines set by WHO, the CDC, elected officials, and...well, let's hear how deep this rabbit hole leads us from the man who broke the story himself.

    #160 - Modern Leadership: We Need Communication, Transparency, and Empathy...NOW

    Less than half a year into 2020, we've experienced global, tectonic shifts that are still being felt now. It's time for modern leadership.

    Common attributes of leadership, such as assertiveness and charisma, are simply no longer enough in the current climate.

    As society becomes more connected and multi-faceted, our leaders must evolve as well.

    #159 - Blood Glucose Regulation: A Guide to Glycemic Index, Continuous Glucose Monitoring, & Intermittent Fasting · Kara Collier, RDN

    With Kara Collier's (RDN) previous experience working in traditional hospital institutions and becoming fed up with the shortcomings of standard care (recalling regular instances where metabolically-impaired patients were given soda & highly processed foods), Kara knew that truly personalized nutrition was the future - and she is working tirelessly to spread the message.
