Brad and Brian are back! Primal video and audio master Brian McAndrew comes to the other side of the mic and gets deep into it with Brad Kearns on all matters of keto, carnivore, and the optimal balance between discipline and enjoying life. The pair discuss the surging popularity of carnivore, wondering about the carni argument that plants might be difficult to digest. They discuss the incidental benefits of keto and carnivore, providing structure, focus, and minimizing decision fatigue and the tendency to get an inch and take a mile. On that note, Brad cops to some recent popcorn binge behavior, and reflects on whether we might gain deeper enjoying from our eating when putting in some restrictions. Brian says keto is “easier” because you can skip meals comfortably—possibly the opposite logic of the SAD eater. As we get more and more sophisticated with dietary strategies, Brian wonders if we might be motivated by FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) instead of a true opportunity to enhance health and well being. This show flows into stuff that’s not usually covered in the informational-heavy programs and will really get you thinking. For example, if you were told that eating only salmon eggs for the rest of your life would deliver a 20% boost in peak performance and longevity, would you make that devils bargain?
