    191: Interview with Dr. Simopoulos Part 1

    191: Interview with Dr. Simopoulos Part 1

    We often use the expression in research, medicine and science that we 'stand on the shoulders of  giants' which is to mean that all of what we know today was because of those bold doctors, scientists, that did the work that we now accept as true. What isn't often added is that those 'Giants', the pioneers were publicly ridiculed, and disagreed with for years before their work became appreciated. And often when their research and discoveries were accepted it was in silence, without public acknowledgement.

    Here is Dr. Artemis Simopoulos who, in my view is one of those 'giants' of medicine and research, and as well as a student Aristotle ... some 2,500 years later. Enjoy this brilliant mind of  a person whose work, truth,  is finally being recognized globally by the World Health Organization, UNESCO, to name a few institutions that know a 'Giant' when they see one.

    190: Prequel to an Interview with Dr. Simopoulos

    I was lucky to be able to talk to Dr. Artemis Simopoulos about her life's work on essential fatty acids and genetics. She has been the foundation for much of what we know about the importance of omega 3, and the omega 6: 3 ratio and why that is so important.

    She her works, of over 365 scientific papers, and having edited over 50 books in her field is evidence of her overwhelming work she has done over the last 50 years. From arguing with Senator George McGovern  in the 1970s over what was to become the Nutritional Guidelines for nearly all western countries, to ushering in the era of precision personal medicine through genomic analysis. 

    This podcast is about the importance of her work, and how the World Health Organization and UNESCO is working with her today on making sure her work will be a 'corner stone' for their future nutritional and dietary recommendations.

    189: Why a Protein Sparing Fast Transforms People's Health Dramatically

    189: Why a Protein Sparing Fast Transforms People's Health Dramatically

    If you have had the privilege of ever seeing someone transform their physical appearance by doing a protein sparing modified fast, then you will be wondering, as I am. How can that be possible. 

    I talk about why and what happens to those people.

    What if they were finally getting the amount of protein they required, or was it due to all the things they were no longer consuming that were bad for them and their metabolism? 

    Kind of both ... but how is that.

    188: The Secret to Weight Loss On Low Carb

    188: The Secret to Weight Loss On Low Carb

    Today we’re talking about the secret to losing weight correctly. Or the reasons why people tend to fail on what they think of as a ketogenic diet.

    The popular (mis)perception of keto

    We hear a lot about keto currently, and the popular perception is that there are many experts out there who can tell us what to do. The truth, however, is that there is no accountability to the definition of what keto is. About 90% of all the information comes from marketers who have never done keto before, and what they think they know about it is probably wrong.  

    The definition of keto

    Ketosis gets gauged by measuring your ketones with a keto meter. So the definition of what keto is can only be determined by whether or not you are in ketosis while you are on it.

    The start of the ketogenic diet

    The ketogenic diet started in 1925. The term ketogenic diet was coined in around 1921 by William Wilder in response to the previous decades of fasting for diabetes and other conditions. 

    The term ‘ketogenic diet’

    The ketogenic diet was used strictly for epilepsy, mostly for pediatric epilepsy. The term ‘ketogenic diet’ came about because it is a diet that causes people to produce ketones that occur when people are fasting.

    A new application

    In the past, the ketogenic diet was only about epilepsy, so the application of keto to diabetes or weight loss is very new. Certain things need to be put in place for you to achieve success with it, and for your body to make the necessary changes.

    No studies 

    Using keto for weight loss is very new, and there are no studies to prove that keto is effective for weight loss.

    The common-sense approach

    The common-sense approach to keto and weight loss lies in gaining a deeper understanding of how various foods affect the body.

    Losing weight

    To effectively lose weight, you have to move away from carbs. And you have to be kind to your body while doing that, so you cannot do it quickly. It has to be a gradual process.

    The secret

    The secret of losing weight on the ketogenic diet is tracking. Education is also vital.

    The 1800s

    If you look at menus from the 1800s, you will see that they are 90% protein, with very few vegetables.

    Misinformation about what you should be eating

    There is not much data available currently to inform people about what they should be eating. And a lot of the available information is misinforming people. 

    Facebook groups 

    Within Facebook groups, there is migration and an evolution towards a low carbohydrate (and eventually no carbohydrates) and a higher protein diet. 


    You cannot overeat protein, in the whole food sense, by itself as you could with carbohydrates, because you would get too full.


    When dealing with the categories of the macros of fat, carbohydrate, and protein as whole food areas, you have to remove the grains and root vegetables from the carbohydrate category. Not because they are unhealthy, but rather because they have very high sugar content.

    Changing your diet in stages

    If you want to lose weight, your body needs to adapt to a high protein and a low or no carbohydrate diet. That means that you have to change your diet slowly, in various stages.


    The secret to losing weight with a keto diet lies in tracking your diet, educating yourself, being prepared to make changes, and having a structure.

    187: The 5 Things That Metabolically Block People from Achieving the Results They Seek With Keto

    187: The 5 Things That Metabolically Block People from Achieving the Results They Seek With Keto

    For some, this is the long a waited topic, conversation, that many feel represents their experience most accurately.  It's for the people who have endured the often unnecessary work of getting started with the Ketogenic diet only to have it become a thoroughly frustrating time and effort. For others, this might be too ‘granular’ in terms of talking about the specific variables required to create a successful outcome. For me it has become a realization in my ‘quest’ of how to have Keto work for everyone (barring specific medical conditions). The realization is that living in a progressively more unhealthy world we have to think about what it takes to be truely healthy in a different light.  

    Please join me in this quick review of some of the main obstacles to achieving great results with the Ketogenic lifestyle. I’m sure some of this will apply to your situation.

    186: What Would I Do Differently If I Started Keto Today

    It’s been at least 6 years since we began our journey on the Ketogenic diet. Learned a lot that I didn’t know when we started and the technology has most certainly changed as well. Put both of those together and it is an entirely different world in which to start Keto. I think you’ll get some insight bits of actionable recommendations when you listen to the story.

Amazing science deep dive

I love how Dr Goldkamp dogs down to the science behind how living a ketogenic lifestyle benefits the body and mind.

Not a very nice guy

I listened to one episode and that was enough. Throughout it he was calling others who don’t do keto his way idiots. He made fun of people who drink protein shakes and those who eat high fat. Really!? You can’t get your point across without being condescending and name calling? Also, I was more confused on keto after listening to him then before. He starts out saying too much protein spikes blood sugar just like carbs, by the end he was saying people need more protein and less fat. I never did learn the “Secret” he professed he knew.
