    #128 Why We Make Bad Food Choices with Jack Bobo

    #128 Why We Make Bad Food Choices with Jack Bobo

    How does our food environment dictate our health? Well, as it turns out it’s incredibly important! Can you believe that in the 1950s and 60s, Americans had comparable obesity levels to the Europeans? What shifted their diets, and ultimately their waistlines, is a number of factors including public policy on nutrition, but also the food environment including portion sizing and the sheer number of choices involved in food consumption.
    Jack Bobo is the author of ‘Why smart people make bad food choices.’ He is also the CEO of Futurity, a food foresight company that advises companies, foundations and governments on emerging food trends and consumer attitudes and behaviors related to the future of food. 
    Recognized by Scientific American in 2015 as one of the 100 most influential people in biotechnology, Jack is a global thought leader and previously served as the Chief Communications Officer and Senior Vice President for Global Policy and Government Affairs at Intrexon Corporation. Prior to joining Intrexon Jack worked at the U.S. Department of State for thirteen years as a senior advisor for global food policy.

    Today we’ll talk about

    Information overload in the grocery aislesHow decision fatigue affects your ability to eat wellWhy what you believe to be eating can have a powerful physiological effectChoice ArchitectureDesigning a deliberate foodscape that delivers health outcomes.And what we can learn from the infamous Google canteens that could be applied to the outside world

    #78 The Keto Series (Part 1 of 2): What is the Ketogenic Diet, with Sue Wood

    #78 The Keto Series (Part 1 of 2): What is the Ketogenic Diet, with Sue Wood

    Susan Wood has worked as a UK registered dietitian for over 35 years, predominantly in the NHS, treating a wide range of paediatric and adult conditions. In 2008, the referral of one young adult for the dietary management of drug resistant epilepsy sparked her interest in ketogenic diet therapy (KDT) and since then she has been pioneering the development of adult treatment protocols in the UK and raising the awareness of dietitians and adult neurologists to the potential that KDT can offer to adults. 
    In 2009 she started to work alongside the Matthews Friends Charity offering support to adults and their neurology teams seeking treatment. Sue continues to oversee the treatment of adults & children with drug resistant epilepsy and mentors NHS teams keen to explore KDT use in adults. She has recently co-authored reports on; the brain tumour patient experience of the use of KDT and the first international recommendations for the management of adults treated with ketogenic diet therapies. She is a member of the UK based Ketogenic Dietitians Research Network (KDRN) and a visiting lecturer at Surrey University.
    In today’s pod we talk about:
    What the ketogenic diet entailsThe history of KD therapyMyths and misinformation about the ketogenic diet The therapeutic utility of KD in epilepsy, cancer and metabolic disordersThe mechanism of KDThe biochemical changes that the ketogenic fuel-switch offersFrom the plate to the petri dish, we need more understandingThe adverse effects of KDThe future of researchPatient resources and support networks

    BONUS EPISODE: Bread and Bliss with Roly Allen

    BONUS EPISODE: Bread and Bliss with Roly Allen

    Have you noticed the sourdough trend sweep through the globe during lockdown? 
    People have developed a new love of home cooking and slowed down sourdough is top of the menu. But Roly Allen’s story started before the pandemic. 
    After an exhausting couple of decades spent working, commuting, travelling and raising two children, Roly Allen baked his first sourdough loaf in his mid 40s because he’d been made redundant and needed a healthy pursuit while he got back on his feet. 
    On the pod today Roly talks me through the process of baking and how sourdough saved his life.  
    We chat about many things on the pod today but I highly encourage you to try a sourdough bake yourself. If not for the health of your body, then for the mindfulness benefits that bread baking can have.
    And do check out Roly's book - 'How to Raise A Loaf' - it's super interesting and full of great advice and hints and tips for baking bread
    And do check out The Doctor's Kitchen website where Roly has shared a 'Working Day Sourdough' recipe and we have all other show notes and social media links

    #79 The Keto Series (Part 2 of 2), How Keto Saved My Child with Alex Ash

    #79 The Keto Series (Part 2 of 2), How Keto Saved My Child with Alex Ash

     A slightly different podcast episode today to give an authentic human experience of what effect a ketogenic diet could have in certain circumstances - we’re talking with Alex Ash, a colleague of one of my best friends in America, who reached out to me a while ago wanting to share his personal experience with the use of a Ketogenic diet for his son’s medical condition.
    Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a severe form of childhood epilepsy with multiple types of seizures and as you’ll hear, Alex and his partners experience has not been a straight forward one in the slightest.
    For any of you listening with children, with or without a chronic condition, I just want to say from the outset that this episode could be triggering so I would exercise some caution if you do not want to listen. 
    Alex’s story has a positive ending but I understand this is not the case for a lot of people struggling with epilepsy and many other conditions. As a medical doctor I witness the daily battle many parents and carers have to endure for the sake of their loved ones.
    As always, none of the information spoken about on today’s podcast is taken to be medical advice, always speak with your practitioner about changes to medication, dietary or supplement regimen. 
    And there are a few explanations for how the keto diet may yield an effect offered by Alex that are not technically accurate, but for the purposes of this special podcast I’ve chosen to completely unedit our conversation. If you’re interested in the more nuanced opinion of a practitioner I would listen to the previous podcast with Sue Wood that I've linked here for you.
    I hope you enjoy listening to Alex tell Jachin’s story, it’s certainly hit home a lot of truths to me.

I love these podcasts and look forward to the weekly emails sent. I have just purchased the the pain free mind-set book recommended in the last podcast, for my son whose a young community nurse. I’m sure he’ll find it as fascinating as I did listening about it.
