Ohhh man we have a special one today, everyone. I didn’t want to release this as a podcast but hey, why not? I had some of the superheroes of meat eating in one film studio, so I had to take advantage of this opportunity to let everyone hear the audio version.
You’ll see this on the big screen - in Food Lies and maybe even other places someday. We shot it in our production studio which belongs to my Sapien.org business partner who is producing Food Lies with me. To set the scene a bit, it’s a large warehouse and we were sitting in the middle on director chairs with 3 cameras filming.
We hit 7 main topics based around meat. We started off high level for a general audience to ease in - why should meat be included as a part of a healthy diet? We went all the way into details of a carnivore diet and should it be nose to tail or just steak and eggs? We also talked about how much plant food we should include in our diet. I always include some - and Mark Sisson used to recommend including a lot - seems like things are changing though...
So I definitely agree with the nose to tail meat-eating approach - so much so that I named my grass finished meat company after it. We have grass finished beef, buffalo, and lamb, as well as pasture raised pork and chicken. Our pork and chicken has been tested in an independent lab and has one of the best omega 6 to omega 3 ratios around. It’s around 1.5 to 1 which is amazing! Most conventionally raised pork is 20:1 and conventionally raised chicken about 24:1. You can see the results on NoseToTail.org and also place an order. It’s shipped out to all 48 contiguous US states each week on Monday and Tuesday. We also have ground beef, buffalo, and pork with organ meats mixed in. You get liver, heart, kidney, and spleen all grass finished and all mixed in so you barely taste it.

We’re in the final days of filming for Food Lies. People keep asking me when it will be released and unfortunately I don’t know. We’ve been editing it for months and keep finding great new experts and stories to add. The world is changing by the day as well and it’s hard to find a cutoff for what content to include in the film. Do we include the news that there’s glyphosate in the Beyond Meat burgers? What about Miki Ben-Dor’s latest study on human evolution and meat eating? Anyway, it’s close to being finished but we still need to do a ton of graphics to illustrate all of these points and make these big concepts easier to understand - so it will take some time.
We just got back from an incredible film tour in Calgary, Toronto, and Ottawa. Some awesome farmers and ranchers doing some great things for the land, the animals, and dispelling vegan propaganda. So much of the land on earth just isn't suitable for crops, yet works perfectly for cattle and other ruminant animals. Anti-meat activists are so clueless when it comes to this, it’s a real shame.
We’re about to head out for the very last shoots in San Diego July 24th-27th based around the Low Carb USA conference. Some great doctors will be in town that we’ll be getting in the film. Come say hi - I’ll be at the conference a bit.
We’ll also have our Meat-Up there on Wednesday July 24th in downtown san diego with Dr. Paul Saladino and ex-vegan turned carnivore Alyse Parker from the last episode. RSVP at http://NoseToTail.org/event
Can’t wait to see everyone there! Now here’s the mighty meaty men themselves - Mark Sisson, Dr. Paul Saladino, and Dr. Shawn Baker.
