This episode is all about reclaiming your right to radical health, strength, and vitality with the carnivore diet.
Dr. Paul Saladino is the leading authority on the science and application of the carnivore diet. He has used this diet to reverse autoimmunity, chronic inflammation and mental health issues in hundreds of patients, many of whom had been told their conditions were untreatable.
In this podcast, we cover:
- About the improvements you’ll see on an animal-based diet
- The one thing you need to do in order to lose weight
- Why it’s important to step out of ketosis for women
- How to start at tier one of the carnivore diet
- Understanding the toxicity levels in most fruits and vegetables
- Why you might be experiencing constipation or diarrhea on the carnivore diet
- The reasons you should be eating more organ meat
The two most prominent improvements people will see on an animal-based diet are weight loss and improved autoimmune conditions. Weight loss is happening when you reduce linoleic acid. This acid is found in most plant oils. When ditching it, people will lose weight. If we eat lots of linoleic acids, our body thinks we need to hold onto that weight. Carbohydrates don’t cause diabetes; it’s the linoleic acid. Instead, we need to focus on animal fats – it will tell our bodies to get thin.
If you’re looking to lose weight, there’s only one thing you need to do: cut out the vegetable oils religiously. Also, cut out everything that has vegetable oils in them. Many olive oils and avocados are also cut with vegetable oil – make sure you know that the oils you use are pure. Plus, pigs and chickens are fed the wrong types of things. Instead, ensure you are eating ruminant (beef, bison, and lamb) meat.
There are versions of an animal-based diet that include carbohydrates. For women, low-carb doesn’t work all of the time. Women’s hormones will shift when they go low-carb. However, if women are afraid of cyclic changes with low-carb, there are ways to do animal-based with some carbohydrates. Especially for women, it’s essential to step out of ketosis. Dr. Paul will include honey during the day – it gives him a lot of flexibility for metabolic movement.
When you think of a plant in the ground, it is highly protected. Seeds and nuts will cause a lot of distress in the body. They contain digestive enzyme inhibitors, lectins, and high amounts of phytic acid. Instead, Dr. Paul says it’s okay to eat fruits like avocados, olives, squash, berries, and cucumbers. These are great for tier one of the carnivore diet.
If you’re going to do a carnivore diet of only fat and protein with no carbohydrates, most people will eat lean meat. Eating lean meat is a great way to get constipated. Dr. Paul says you do not need fiber to poop! Actually, fiber does not improve constipation. There is a famous study where a zero fiber diet did the best at resolving constipation. If you believe you need fiber to poop, it’s not supported by medical literature.
Also, many people say the carnivore diet will give them diarrhea. If this is the case, Dr. Paul says to add more fiber through avocado, olives, and squash. Give your small intestines some time to adjust, and your colons will adapt. Plus, Dr. Paul says it’s time to think about eating more organ meat in order to get enough riboflavin, an essential B vitamin. Eating nose to tail is ethically the right thing to do. Preferably, get fresh organs. If you are not able to get them, Dr. Paul sells Heart & Soil Supplements.
Stay tuned as Dr. Paul speaks about being metabolic unwell during COVID and why eating meat is an ethical way of life.
Dr. Paul’s message for the world is to eat like your ancestors not like your doctor.
