    Part 76 - Pulmonary doctor treating COVID on the front lines in NYC - Dr. Lina Miyakawa

    Part 76 - Pulmonary doctor treating COVID on the front lines in NYC - Dr. Lina Miyakawa

    Hey everyone, we got a special episode here. My friend Dr. Lina Miyakawa is with us today live from New York City. She’s a pulmonary ICU specialist and is treating coronavirus cases in Mt. Sinai hospital in Manhattan.
    She went to NYU for her undergraduate degree, received her medical degree from John A. Burns School of Medicine at University of Hawaii, completed her Internal Medicine residency training at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, affiliated with Stanford University in California and her specialty fellowship training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City.
    Let’s get straight to the episode - I think it’s really interesting to get to hear this inside scoop from someone dealing with this on the front lines. She’s been working nonstop treating patients and spared a few minutes to talk with me. Just to give you an idea of what we’re dealing with, she had to cancel our interview yesterday because she lost another patient. 
    If you’re new to this show make sure to start back at episode 1. I’ve spent the last 2 years finding the brightest minds in the world to interview and people continually report how life changing the information presented has been for them. Here’s Dr. Lina.

    Part 75 - Dr. Aseem Malhotra on Our Absurd Obsession with LDL, Hospitals Required to Serve Junk Food, and Banning Sugar

    Part 75 - Dr. Aseem Malhotra on Our Absurd Obsession with LDL, Hospitals Required to Serve Junk Food, and Banning Sugar

    Hello, hello everyone! I hope everyone is staying safe and properly sequestering themselves in their own homes. The big thing I’m focusing on and I hope other people are as well, is keeping myself healthy and productive. We can make this into a vacation and mess around and eat bread and desserts and get all fat and sassy. Or we can use this time to cook delicious, healthy meals and do home workouts. We can get things done on to-do lists that have been sitting around for months, or we can watch Netflix. I’m having moments of pure unproductivity but I snap out of it and am actually taking care of things that have fallen to the wayside and feel pretty good about it. Hopefully everyone listening is staying motivated and optimistic and making the best of this situation. You certainly have the power to do so - it’s up to you.
    I did this podcast with my new friend Dr. Aseem Malhotra a couple weeks ago and think he has some great info to share. He’s doing some great things out there across the pond. I just posted a video he sent me of him on a news program talking about how important it is to stay metabolically healthy in these crazy times. Underlying metabolic disease such as obesity, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes are huge risk factors with coronavirus. Luckily everyone listening is probably very metabolically healthy or on a journey towards that.
    Dr. Aseem Malhotra is becoming one of the most influential cardiologists in Britain and a world leading expert in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. He is successfully leading the campaign against excessive sugar consumption. The award-winning NHS cardiologist has successfully motivated leading academics, the media and politicians to make sugar reduction a health priority in the UK by publishing commentaries in the BMJ and mainstream media. He also created the film The Big Fat Fix with Donal O’Neil.
    We’ll be putting a limited number of Nose to Tail boxes on http://nosetotail.org thursday. We weren't ready for this rush of orders but got everything shipped out to those who ordered in the past 2 days. We’re ramping things up and should have more and more meat as the weeks roll on.
    The Sapien Program is coming soon so be ready! Make sure you’re subscribed to the newsletter on http://Sapien.org
    Other than that just make sure to rate this show on iTunes or the podcast app, start back at episode 1, share with a friend, and support the show on Patreon. I continually turn down sponsors to the show and am leaving a lot of money on the table. I really want to not have any affiliation with advertisers even if they have good products. I think everyone can agree this would be better. This only works if people support the show. 
    And on that note, let’s get to it. Here’s Dr. Aseem Malhotra

    Part 73 - Alex Leaf, MS, CISSN on Some New Ideas on Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, and the Carnivore Diet

    Part 73 - Alex Leaf, MS, CISSN on Some New Ideas on Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, and the Carnivore Diet

    Hello good people, we have a fun one today covering a lot of things. We covered so much we didn’t even get to all the stuff I initially wanted to talk to Alex about. He had 2 good blog posts on Time Restricted Feeding and why we definitely should not restrict protein for longevity that we unfortunately didn’t get to.
    A little news before we jump in - I joined Low Carb Denver as a speaker at the last minute. People are apparently pretty worried about this Corona Virus thing and some speakers dropped out. I am not worried, especially because of my super robust immune system due to eating a nutrient dense Sapien diet. If there’s anyone else out there with herculean health please join us in Denver this weekend, the flights are cheap. I also may be getting some free conference live streaming codes courtesy of Food Lies film supporter Amanda if you want to reach out to me. You’ll be able to watch all the action from the warm safety of your home.
    Alex Leaf has a masters in nutrition, a teacher for the University of Western States’ Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine master’s program and was a writer and researcher for Examine.com He has a great blog where he breaks down topics simply and cites a bunch of studies to back it up. He’s very into the evidence based approach to nutrition science and has some interesting takes on things.
    This wasn’t a debate, but it could have been. I try to continually bring on people I don’t necessarily agree with to make sure we hear all sides of things and don’t get trapped in one way of thinking. I was pretty agreeable with him in retrospect which is what always seems to happen when I’m hosting a podcast. 
    I realized after he was a proponent of standard diet advice - lean meats & dairy, eggs and fish as well as complex carbs. This is the thing - this can work for people and does fit within the Sapien Framework. Many bodybuilders still do this with success. The vast majority of athletes do this with success. When I was training for the Decathlon last year at UCLA this is what the athletes were doing (for all sports) and yes, they had top professionals using evidence based principles to advise them. The athletes thought I was insane for eating almost no carbs and doing a decathlon. So the story is, yes, you can be ok doing this and you can have whole carb sources (preferably not grains)
    We later get into cholesterol. I don’t mean any disrespect, but Alex is not a cholesterol expert and please don’t take his opinion on LDL as a fact or something I agree on. There’s many guests in the past that have spoken on why LDL is not harmful including Ivor Cummins, Dave Feldman, Dr. Bret Scher, Dr. Paul Saladino, and next week Dr. Aseem Malhotra will be talking about this as well. So again, so I don’t end up in an echo-chamber I heard what Alex had to say. I still don’t think it holds much water. I’ve been reading/listening to Dr. Malcolm Kendrick for quite a while and a great episode just popped up on Paul Saladino’s podcast with him about the real cause of heart disease and how LDL is not the problem. So listen to that one if you want to learn even more. 
    Anyway, there’s a lot of other good stuff in this one so take a listen. If you want to support this podcast and get some amazing grass finished, sustainably raised, beyond organic meat head to http://nosetotail.org and get it delivered to your door. We will be getting the epic beef bacon back in stock next week. We have the high omega 3 pork and chicken that are fed a special diet. We also have the classic true superfood - the primal ground beef with liver, heart, kidney, and spleen mixed in. We have one that’s 30% organ meat where you can taste those delicious nutritious bits and one that’s 5% if you're not quite ready for the big leagues.

    Part 71 - Allan Savory on How to Save the World

    Part 71 - Allan Savory on How to Save the World

    Allan Savory was born in Zimbabwe and educated in South Africa at the University of Natal, BS in Zoology and Botany. In the 1960s he made a significant breakthrough in understanding what was causing the degradation and desertification of the world’s grassland ecosystems and, as a resource management consultant, worked with numerous managers on four continents to develop sustainable solutions.
    In 1992 Savory and his wife, Jody Butterfield, formed a non-profit organization in Zimbabwe, the Africa Centre for Holistic Management, donating a ranch that would serve as a learning site for people all over Africa. In 2009 Savory, Butterfield, and a group of colleagues co-founded the Savory Institute in Boulder, Colorado to serve the world through an international network of entrepreneurial innovators and leaders committed to serving their regions with the highest standards of Holistic Management training and implementation support.
     
    In 2003, Allan Savory received Australia’s International Banksia Award “for the person or organization doing the most for the environment on a global scale,” and in 2010 Savory (and the Africa Centre) received the Buckminster Fuller Institute’s Challenge award for work that has “significant potential to solve humanity’s most pressing problems.” A TED talk Savory gave in 2013 has received over 10.8 million views and in 2014 was voted one of the 50 most intriguing TED talks of all time. The Savory Institute is one of 11 finalists in the Virgin Earth Challenge, a $25 million initiative for the successful commercialization of ways of taking greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere and keeping them out with no countervailing impacts.

    Part 70 - Dr. Tommy Wood on How to Maintain a Healthy Brain and Body Into Old Age & Crush Life in the Present

    Part 70 - Dr. Tommy Wood on How to Maintain a Healthy Brain and Body Into Old Age & Crush Life in the Present

    Holy smokes were coming in strong with season 6. This one with Dr. Tommy Wood is pretty special. We also have the legendary Allan Savory next week. Get ready now by watching his world famous TED talk on YouTube.

     

    Dr. Tommy Wood is a full-time research assistant professor at the University of Washington in the Department of Pediatrics. The majority of his academic work has focused on developing therapies for brain injury in newborn infants. His current research interests include the physiological and metabolic responses to brain injury, as well as developing easily-accessible methods with which to track human health, performance, and longevity. He does this work through academic positions at University of Washington and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition.

     

    Tommy received a bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences and Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge before studying medicine at the University of Oxford. He worked as a junior doctor in central London for two years after medical school, and then moved to Norway to complete a PhD in physiology and neuroscience at the University of Oslo.

     

    Tommy is the former President of the Physicians for Ancestral Health society and has also coached and competed in multiple sports including rowing, CrossFit, powerlifting, and ultra-endurance racing.

     

    He’s got a strong foundation in many areas of health and I think his views are really valuable. Some people get hyper-focused on one or two things - which can be super beneficial and can lead to amazing discoveries. But it could also sometimes cause people to only look at things from one viewpoint or miss the forest for the trees. I love looking at all sides of nutrition and keep trying to evolve my views based on the almost 150 people I’ve talked to so far.

     

    It seems some people just take something that a super smart doctor like Paul Saladino says (who’s a good friend of mine, and I mean no disrespect) and take it as the end all, be all. That’s not going to work well in something as complicated as nutrition. I’ll take his well-informed interpretation of the body of evidence and then go listen to another super smart and experienced doctor who believes in more plant-heavy approaches. And then try to make sense of it all. But I don’t have it all figured out either! I’m just confirming my own biases and gravitating towards ideas that fit my views no matter how hard I try not to. The best I’ve come up with through all this is the Sapien diet. It will be ever-evolving as new information comes to light.

     

    Anyway, just listen to this whole episode, even though it’s long. I think it’s really valuable and Tommy is up there on my Mount Rushmore of people who I am totally in line with like Dr. Ted Naiman.
