    The Impactful Vegan, Robert Cheeke

    The Impactful Vegan, Robert Cheeke

    Robert Cheeke, author of The Impactful Vegan, discusses the importance of focusing on effectiveness rather than passion. He argues that passion alone does not guarantee impact or success, and that it is more important to identify and utilize one's skills and talents. He also emphasizes the power of influencing others to become vegan and the ripple effect it can have. Robert shares his personal journey of becoming vegan and the conflicts he faced within his family. Despite the differences, he highlights the importance of understanding and supporting each other's choices. The conversation covers various topics related to veganism and animal advocacy. The first theme discussed is the desire to see a shift from animal agriculture to plant crops for sustainability and profitability.

    Dr. Alan Goldhamer: Can Fasting Save Your Life?

    Dr. Alan Goldhamer: Can Fasting Save Your Life?

    Dr. Alan Goldhamer, founder and director of the TrueNorth Health Center, discusses the benefits of fasting for achieving and maintaining good health. He explains that fasting can help with weight loss, detoxification, reducing inflammation, and improving cardiovascular health. Fasting mimicking diets, such as the keto diet, may have some similar effects to fasting but are not as effective in the long term. Dr. Goldhamer emphasizes the importance of supervised fasting and proper refeeding to avoid complications like refeeding syndrome. He also discusses the challenges of motivating people to maintain a healthy lifestyle after fasting.

    Paul Shapiro of The Better Meat Co. Discusses Clean Meat

    Paul Shapiro of The Better Meat Co. Discusses Clean Meat

    Paul Shapiro, CEO of the Better Meat Co, shares his journey from becoming a vegan to creating a healthier form of meat. He discusses the limitations of traditional animal agriculture and the need for alternative proteins. Shapiro explores the three types of meat alternatives: lab-grown meat, plant-based meat, and mycoprotein. He highlights the advantages of mycoprotein, which is high in protein, fiber, and nutrients, and has a meat-like texture. The goal is to recreate the meat experience for people in ways that are healthier for them, better for the planet, and reduce animal suffering.
