Primal Blueprint Podcast (general)

Host Brad Kearns welcomes Tania back for a third show, on the heels of two fabulous shows covering the launch of Tania’s book and the massive amount of interesting content inside. This time, Brad and Tania have a more breezy chat about assorted health topics, and you will pull out some great nuggets to get you focused on optimizing your diet and lifestyle, and navigating through the unhealthy forces of hectic modern life filled with too much digital stimulation and too little nutrition.

Topics covered include: the dangers of consuming refined vegetable oils, the health benefits of consuming organ meats, especially grass-fed organ meats (including Tania affinity for “scrambled brains”), and pasture-raised chicken and eggs. How to limit kids screen time, concerns about EMF exposure (such as the new 5G cellular network) and LED lights. She also covers the importance of sun exposure to improve digestion and reduce cancer risk, as well as the benefits of drinking wine with meals to enhance the social experience.

Switch the B.S. meter to the "on" position and listen to the wise and powerful Dr. Cate Shanahan address many myths and misconceptions about keto, and other ancestral health practices on this hard-hitting show. Brad has avoided caffeine his whole life so he won't "fry his adrenals." Dr. Cate calls BS. How about eating in the evening--makes you store fat, right? Probably doesn't matter that much. Can you generate ketones on a super high carb diet? Yes you actually can, says Cate. It's all about long periods of fasting or eating in a caloric deficit.
 
Cate gives us some sneak previews from her fabulous new book, The Fat Burn Fix, that will land in 2020 (hold your breath until then, this is bound to be a masterpiece follow up to her landmark mega-bestseller Deep Nutrition. This book was originally self-published in 2009 and helped spur the explosive growth of the primal/paleo movement. In it, Dr. Catepresented her trademarked "Four Pillars of the Human Diet"

Oh yeah, you know those headaches that happen during a busy, sugar crash burnout day? This pattern can become a serious matter whereby you suffer from frequent mini-strokes when your brain is deprived of oxygen due to overconsumption of carbs and the brains over-reliance on sugar. Prominent author Dr. David Perlmutter calls Alzheimer’s “Type III diabetes” due to the close association between insulin resistance and cognitive decline. Good news shared by Dr. Cate is you can reverse early brain problems and stroke risk by transitioning to a more nutrient-dense, lower sugar, and especially keto-friendly diet. This is no funny business, as Dr. Cate offers the stat the typical western diet derives 66 percent of total calories from the big three main most offensive modern foods: sugars, grains, and refined vegetable oils. Dr. Cate is not afraid to call out entities like Harvard University for aggressively promoting nutrient-deficient diets for decades, spurred by corporate influences and the almighty dollar. This is highly disturbing, and greatly inspiring to take matters of health into your own hands.

Host Brad Kearns addresses some of the common misconceptions and misinterpretations of the ketogenic diet, instead of describing how to do it right and enjoy lasting benefits. This is a syndicated presentation of a Facebook Live event. Join the Keto Reset Facebook Group for more Facebook live events

Most importantly, Brad relates a message from Dr. Cate Shanahan (author of Deep Nutrition and future podcast guest) that ketone production is triggered by the burning stored body fat, not ingested fat. Dang son, trip out on that revelation, for it will turn lots of the keto hype on its ear! When you eat any meal, or even snack on your keto approved treats, you essentially shut off ketone production. This negates the premise of the bacon and butter diet and the fetishes for high-fat coffee in the morning and fat bombs for snacks and treats. This is a little oversimplified, but it's helpful to reframe your perspective about keto to associated it with fasting, eating in a compressed time window, and eating in caloric deficit if you are looking to lose excess body fat. 
 
We talk about people having difficulty reducing excess body fat and the importance of following the multi-step Keto Reset Diet approach, where you start with 21-Day Metabolism Reset, enter a fine-tuning period, and finally conduct a focused 6-week period of nutritional ketosis. Fun questions come in from the Facebook crowd to keep the show lively.

Keto is the crazy fad diet of today, and with this excitement comes an excess of hype, misinformation, and a flawed approach. Host Brad Kearns talks about how to do keto the right way, with particular attention to doing the necessary prep work to develop metabolic fitness before you commence your first formal foray into nutritional ketosis. You'll learn why a regimented approach might be too stressful, and that the concept of refeeds and accordant strategies might be best addressed with Brian McAndrew's simple suggestion to not worry about it, because "life will give you refeeds." You'll learn how to stick it out if things get a little difficult early into keto, and how the most profound benefits are enjoyed when you complete a minimum six-week period of strict nutritional ketosis. You'll also learn about Brian's pre-existing commitment to keto that overrides any potential application of will power or decision fatigue on a day-to-day basis. Commit to a simple strategy where you choose from a list of approved foods and don't consider any outside options. Enjoy this informative show that will help you succeed with keto!

I’m not a big app guy, instead preferring to keep a loose running tally of how I’m eating, training, and living, but my understanding is that kids these days love smartphone apps. Besides, I often forget that not everyone lives and breathes this stuff. Not everyone geeks out over all the minutiae and maintains an extensive database of keto and Primal-related errata in their heads.

So today, I’m giving you a list of the top 9 keto (and keto-relevant) apps.
