When it comes to figuring out what an optimal diet and lifestyle is for you, it becomes evident that our approach to what is optimal for each of us is radically different, which means we have to let go of the notion that any specific diet is better than the other.
Dr. Jonathan Reisman is not your average ER doctor. He has one of the most unique perspectives on health, diet, and human anatomy influenced by his love of travel and nature. He doesn’t shy away from the unsettling aspects of life, but approaches it all with reverence and curiosity. He’s also the author of The Unseen Body, a fascinating book I highly recommend.
“I’m very skeptical about what doctors have to say about nutrition.” -Jonathan Reisman
In the first part of this 2 part episode, we get deep in the weeds of the ongoing debate between carnivores and vegans. Is one diet better than the other for our optimal health, or is your gut and environment the best indication of what’s best for you?
Unique Perspectives from Jonathan:
“The adaptability of the gastrointestinal tract is important, [...] our gastrointestinal tract does not look like a pure carnivore’s tract, it also doesn't look like a pure herbivore’s tract, so I think we are probably meant to be omnivores.”
“Variability is a really important thing.”
“Nutritional science through headlines is a very bad way to understand what’s good and what’s bad for us.”
