    Hello my friends, we’re back at it with another super interesting episode. I’m Brian Sanders and I’m creating the much anticipated Food Lies film. You can follow along with the progress as well as get daily valuable content on the latest health info, pertinent studies, nutrition news, and my diagrams and graphics making sense of the complicated and conflicting world of nutrition. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook and join the now 100K people who are staying tuned into the latest and greatest info. Just search any of those platforms for “Food Lies” and you’ll find me.
    Today I’m talking to Rob Tuncks who’s an Australian farmer and former telecommunication company owner. He sold his business, retired at 30, and now produces grass fed lamb as well as other plant and animal food products. He has very insightful experiences with food systems and the morals we have placed upon them because he has experience growing both plant and animal foods he is acutely aware of the vast amount of deaths required to grow the staple crops so much of the world relies on. He also studies food systems on a world scale to investigate the enormous caloric need to feed 7.7 billion people and how we can accomplish that.
    We’ve been talking for many months about some of these issues and I think there’s so many challenging and important questions that need to be answered here. Some of his views are a bit hard to swallow. Some are necessary to acknowledge and address. Some make our broken food system make much more sense. He also could very well be wrong about some of these things. I think there’s some great solutions using holistic farming methods using plants and animals together. Humans are pretty intelligent and adaptable when we have to be.
    Instead of my usual announcements, I’m just going to encourage people to go to http://sapien.org to discover all the great things we have going on. No matter where you are on your health journey, we have resources and free things to help you on your way. We also have a link there for the Nose to Tail grass fed and finished meat. This is my company, I’m not promoting someone else’s service. Everything we’re doing at Sapien and Nose to Tail is created by us and for the specific purpose of getting humans healthier. We have the Tribe there with the special features, the Sapien Program, and more info about the Food Lies film as well. Just go to http://sapien.org and get everything there. 
    I want to thank the community for being great and pushing this all forward. I love hearing your stories of success, so keep sending them in. Keep sharing this podcast and writing the reviews. And keep up your healthy living. Let’s grow old together. Enough out of me, please enjoy this interesting interview with my Australian pal, Rob Tuncks.

    Part 93 - Dr. Mindy Pelz on the Ultimate Superpower: Immune Health and How to Increase it w/ Food, Fasting, and the Gut Microbiome

    Hey everyone, welcome back. I have a great one this week. Dr. Mindy and I had a really fun discussion while she also dispensed a lot of useful info. We covered the science and benefits of fasting in great detail along with all kinds of tips and tricks for pulling short and long fasts off successfully. We also talk about how healthy periods of time spent not eating are. This should not be considered fasting - it should just be normal. What’s not normal is eating from when you wake up until you go to sleep. We covered a lot on the gut microbiome and immune health as well. You’re going to love her.
    Dr. Mindy Pelz is empowering people all over the world to believe in their body’s own healing abilities through fasting, diet variation, removing chemicals from the body, and so much more. Dr. Mindy is a recognized leader in the alternative health world and is the founder of Family Life Wellness, her local clinic that is made to speed up healing and maximize performance. She is also the founder of the Reset Academy, a private group where she and her team help people implement the principals of fasting, keto, and diet variation into their daily lives. She is the host of one of the leading science podcasts, The Resetter Podcast, and the author of three best-selling books, The Menopause Reset, The Reset Factor, and The Reset Kitchen. She also has a great youtube channel.
    Alright, so the announcements for this week are simple. We have the Sapien Tribe lifetime memberships available for a bit longer at the deeply discounted rate. This community is all about building relationships with likeminded people who are going to help you with your diet & lifestyle practices. I know it’s not alway easy to live like a homo sapien in this modern world so we have a virtual community of people and resources to help you do so. We also have the bonus episodes of this podcast, extended show notes, Zoom calls with Dr. Gary and I, and more. Check it out at http://sapien.org
    If you're serious about losing a significant amount of weight or fixing health programs you can join our Sapien Program. We have some special rates for that as well as we get it going. You can find out more at http://sapien.org and also get the free Sapien Food Guide there. It breaks down the Sapien diet principles and provides a super easy to use visual meal guide and shopping guide. Get that for free at http://sapien.org
    Get your grass fed and finished meat delivered to you from http://nosetotail.org We have a ranch in Texas sending out top quality nose to tail meat, organs, and even marrow and broth bones. Please share this podcast with a friend and give it a review in the podcast app or iTunes. Make sure to start back at episode 1 if you haven't been listening from the beginning, people have been calling this a free college course on nutrition. I’d have to agree - I’ve had over 90 of the world’s top nutrition, human evolution, and environmental doctors and scientists on the show and can’t tell you how much valuable information is in these episodes.
    Please enjoy another great one with Dr. Mindy!

    Part 92 - Glenn Livingston, PhD on Binge Eating, the Reptilian Brain, and Mastering Your Relationship with Food

    Hi friends, thanks for joining me for another episode of Peak Human, I’m Brian Sanders and I’m creating the much anticipated Food Lies film. You can follow along with the progress as well as get daily valuable content on the latest health info, pertinent studies, nutrition news, and my diagrams and graphics making sense of the complicated and conflicting world of nutrition. Which really should be quite simple if we used some common sense, knowledge of human evolution and our ancestors, and meld that with the new science that’s coming out daily. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook and join the now 100K people who are staying tuned into the latest and greatest info. Just search any of those platforms for “Food Lies” and you’ll find me.
    Today I’m talking to Dr. Glenn Livingston who’s a clinical psychologist, food addiction specialist, and even worked for the food industry for many years giving him an inside look at their shady practices. He was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. You may have seen his (or his company's)  previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, and many other major media outlets  You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio. 
    Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
    I really enjoyed this conversation because I’ve had countless guests covering what we should eat and why, but there’s an entirely other side of the story that's rarely addressed: what happens when you have all the right knowledge but eat the wrong foods or go on binges anyway? This really may be half the battle (or more) for a lot of people. Please make sure to listen carefully to this one as there’s a lot of practical and actionable info he gives out.
    If you’d like more help with what to eat, why, and maybe most importantly how to stick to the plan, please look into our new Sapien Program at http://Sapien.org we’ve got our program led by Dr. Gary and our lead health coach and myself that will help change your life. We’ve got your back. You can get the free Sapien Food Guide there if you just want to get started on your own.
    We also have some lifetime memberships left for the Sapien Tribe. There’s a lot of exclusive perks for our members including our zoom calls with Dr. Gary, Coach Becker, and myself. All of this is at http://sapien.org
    Lastly, we’ve got the grass fed and finished beef and buffalo and high omega 3 pork and chicken at http://nosetotail.org That’s delivered to your door in the 48 contiguous states. Our best selling and unique product is the Primal ground beef with liver, heart, kidney, and spleen mixed in. It’s a great way to get the most nutrient dense and delicious meat into that body of yours. Regular ground beef tastes watered down after you’ve tried this stuff. That’s at http://nosetotail.org
    Let’s get onto the show. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for reviewing it on the podcast app. And most of all, thanks for listening and being healthy and awesome people. I love interacting with everyone on Instagram and social media and there really is something special about the community we’re creating together. Hope everyone enjoys this one with Dr. Glenn.

    Part 91 - Briana Pobiner, PhD on Meat-Eating Throughout Human History

    Hey there everyone, I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend. Los Angeles tried to cancel it by closing all the beaches, the one place that would assumably be safe to spend some time outdoors with friends and family and soak up some vitamin D, so I spent some time in beautiful San Diego where people enjoyed the independence and freedom America fought for.
    Today I’m talking to Dr. Briana Pobiner who is a paleoanthropologist and works at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural HIstory and put together the Hall of Human Origins. Her research centers on the evolution of human diet (with a focus on meat-eating), but has included topics as diverse as chimpanzee carnivory and cannibalism in the Cook islands. She has done fieldwork in modern ecosystems, conducted excavations, and studied fossil collections in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Indonesia, and Romania and has published many scientific papers on these topics. Additionally, she serves as an Associate Research Professor of Anthropology at the George Washington University. For more info see https://naturalhistory.si.edu/staff/briana-pobiner
    We go through the entire history of human meat-eating starting with when we split off from our ancestors 6-7 million years ago. We even get into chimp hunting and meat-eating as well. If you are a member of the Sapien Tribe you’ll get the bonus part of the episode where we cover cannibalism. Pretty wild stuff here.
    We still have some lifetime memberships available at a deep discount. This is funding all the content we are making at sapien.org that will only increase in the future. We are completely community powered and I’d like to keep it that way.
    If you are ready to lose some serious weight you can also find out about our new Sapien Program at http://sapien.org We are offering a 10 week program that will change your life. We have all the materials and information to educate you, as well as health coaches to guide you in your journey. The info is all out there, but we have done the work to make it simple and actionable and keep you accountable. We have a special price for the program for a limited time. You can find out more at http://sapien.org and grab our free Sapien Food Guide there as well.
    Of course there’s always the grass fed and finished meat at http://nosetotail.org and you can help us out by giving this podcast a review on itunes or the podcast app and sharing it with family and friends. Like I always say, I’d strongly recommend going back and starting with episode one or working backwards to the beginning. Now please enjoy this episode with Dr. Briana Pobiner.

    Part 90 - Aviaja Hauptmann, PhD on Traditional Inuit Animal-Based Diets & Fighting the Plant-Based Agenda That’s Killing Her People

    Part 90 - Aviaja Hauptmann, PhD on Traditional Inuit Animal-Based Diets & Fighting the Plant-Based Agenda That’s Killing Her People

    Well hello again Sapien people. I’m really excited about this episode. I feel like I’ve found another gem from the far reaches of the globe. Aviaja is of Inuit descent and was born in Greenland where she continues to do her research. Her work revolves around the 98% animal-based diets of the native people there. SHe also is a public speaker and activist for the preservation of their native animal-based diet which is being jeopardized by anti-meat activists and plant-based ideals of the government recommendations. They are trying to get people to eat industrialized plant-based foods that have to be shipped into their country instead of eating their natural diet.
    She’s a microbiologist with a Ph.D. in microbial ecology and bioinformatics. She’s been researching the microbiology of Greenland and the broader Arctic through large amounts of DNA sequencing data, also called metagenomics. She’s particularly interested in studying traditional Greenlandic foods eaten by the inuit.
    We get into all kinds of interesting topics, especially around fermented foods, which are mostly animal foods in her culture. You’ll want to make sure to stick around for this entire interview.
    A few quick announcements - get the free Sapien Food guide on the new http://sapien.org site. It’s like a cheat sheet to being healthy for life. It breaks down the Sapien principles and gives a visual guide of what to eat. 
    You can also learn about our Sapien Program there if you’re ready to make some serious changes in your life. Our program educates you on how to be healthy for life and lose weight in the process. It’s backed by Dr. Gary and our health coaching team. You can join us in our clinic Evolve Healthcare in Los Angeles or anywhere in the world. That’s at http://sapien.org
    You can also join the tribe there. This is for people who already have sorted out their health but are looking for more and to be part of the special community we’re growing. We just had a private Zoom call last week where Dr. Gary and I answered member questions live. It was really great and we record these and share them to the tribe after as well. We have a limited number of lifetime memberships available at a deep discount at http://sapien.org
    That’s it! You can always get the grass finished meat from our ranch in Texas delivered to your door at http://nosetotail.org and please share this podcast with family and friends and give it a review. Really appreciate all of you - here’s Aviaja Hauptmann.

    Part 89 - Dr. Brian Lenzkes on The Future of Medicine, Aligning Incentives, and Fixing the Broken Healthcare (Sickcare) System

    Hello everyone, we’re here with another fresh episode of Peak Human, hot off the press. I’ve been recording these each week and posting them within a few days to make sure they’re current and relevant. For those of you who are new to the show, I’m Brian Sanders and I’m creating the Food Lies film which we are trying to finish by the end of the year. We got slowed down a bit due to the current state of the world, but are actively working on it daily. 
    I also work with an internal medicine physician, Dr. Gary Shlifer here in Los Angeles where we treat patients with diet & lifestyle instead of rushing to medications. In fact, our goal is to remove as many medications as possible which we successfully do across the board. We have just launched the Sapien Program where people can radically change their life with our physician supervised diet & lifestyle program that includes, videos, written materials, visual resources, and health coaching. You can learn more about it and get the free Sapien Food Guide at http://Sapien.org Anyone in the world can take part in this program if they are serious about losing weight and dedicating themselves to a change. We’re all about making it fun, delicious, sustainable, and enjoyable. This isn’t about counting calories, being hungry, or needing tons of will-power.
    We also have the Sapien Tribe for people who have already made diet & lifestyle changes and are looking to further their knowledge and keep themselves motivated, accountable, and up to date on new info. It’s an amazing group of people that help each other grow. We also have a ton of perks like our private members area, private Zoom community meetings, extended show notes of the podcast, and unlisted video resources on meal prep and exercise routines. You can also find out about this and join at http://sapien.org
    Get in on the ground floor of this community and be a founding member for life with a deep discount on a lifetime membership. We are running out of these limited spots. We’re building something special together.
    Brian Lenzkes is an internal medicine doctor in San Diego. Dr. Lenzkes received a BS in Biology from UC Irvine, and an MD from USC Medical School. He practices root cause medicine and has moved away from the standard insurance-based medical system to a Direct Primary Care model to better serve his patients. He also speaks around the country on the benefits of diet & lifestyle-based medicine. 
    We speak today on the future of medicine. Not only does this of course rely on root cause medicine and diet & lifestyle intervention, but aligned incentives, new technology, and a collaborative model. This includes wearable technology such as CGM or continuous glucose monitors, smart blood pressure cuffs, smart scales, and more. Things will really make sense concerning our current nightmare of a healthcare system after listening to this episode.Once again please go to the new version of http://sapien.org to get the free Sapien Food Guide, learn about http://NoseToTail.org grass finished meat delivery service from our ranch in Texas, and to join the Sapien Tribe. Thanks so much for supporting this podcast with a review and sharing it with friends and family! Now here’s my friend, Dr. Brian Lenzkes.
