I can’t complain about my existence in modern culture. My life is great. I have a loving family. My kids are happy and successful. My wife is a friend and lover and confidante and partner. Business is good and interesting. I care about what I’m doing. Every day is meaningful—and unburdened by concerns around mental well-being. Depression isn’t an issue for me.

One of the more exciting developments over the past few years has been the explosion in population genetics research. People are a diverse lot, and even though we’re all people who essentially want the same things out of life (and we’re working with the same basic machinery), there’s a lot of wiggle room. It’s not just information for curiosity’s sake. The information researchers are uncovering about human ancestry can have real ramifications for how said humans should eat.

In today’s show, host Lindsay Taylor talks to Shawn Mynar, NTP, a holistic nutritionist whom you might know as the host of the popular podcast The Keto For Women Show. Shawn is an expert on helping women heal and achieve optimal health through a ketogenic diet and supportive lifestyle modifications. While Shawn’s practice focuses on helping women navigate the world of keto, the information in today’s show will be relevant to everyone! Some of the topics they cover include:

Who benefits from keto? What are the various motivations of the women with whom Shawn works to go keto?

 

Tips for making the transition to keto as smooth as possible. How do we set ourselves up for success? Are there things that women in particular might want to consider?

 

Are there “rules” for keto that we should all be following? How do you achieve “food freedom” or metabolic flexibility?

 

When it is better to try to heal yourself before making any major dietary changes, versus using dietary changes to heal yourself?

 

Analysis paralysis is real! What can people do to get going even if they feel overwhelmed by the transition to keto?

 

How does Shawn help people find the optimal number of calories to eat, the correct macros for their specific needs, etc.? Intuitive eating is the ultimate goal, but how do we get there, especially for people who have a history of yoyo dieting or people whose metabolisms aren’t otherwise healthy to start?

How does Shawn help her clients develop a mindset that leads to success?

Most people learn about ancestral health through books and blogs, which makes sense—Primal folks tend to be big readers, and the complexity and depth and constant evolution of the knowledge almost requires the written word for proper transmission. But a well-produced, beautiful film with great content has a unique effect on viewers. The combination of video and audio are more convincing than prose to our lizard brains, making documentaries a great vehicle for the introduction of a radically new idea. Skilled creators in the paleo space have taken note, producing some excellent ancestral health documentaries.
