Primal Blueprint Podcast

Host Brad Kearns goes deep into the fascinating world of the nose-to-tail carnivore diet with leading expert Dr. Paul Saladino. If you’ve heard of this emerging dietary strategy and don’t know what to think, Dr. Paul presents an extremely compelling and scientifically validated case for emphasizing nutrient-dense animal foods in your diet. Regarding the plant foods that we have long been told to make a dietary centerpiece, Dr. Paul proposes that the natural toxins contained in all plants may be compromising your health without you knowing it. If you have any form of nagging autoimmune or inflammatory conditions that aren’t responding to traditional treatment, consider a test period of exclusion of all plant foods to give your digestive system and potential leaky gut condition and chance to heal. Dr. Paul is the author of the bestseller The Carnivore Code. Learn more at CarnivoreMD.com

Host Brad Kearns welcomes Primal Health Coach Ryan Baxter to the show to discuss the importance of intentional breathing as it relates to minimizing workout (and life) stress and optimizing fat burning. Ryan discusses the important role breathing plays in whether we burn carbs or fat during aerobic workouts.

Beyond the need to observe the “180 minus age” in heartbeats per minute, the efficiency of our delivery of oxygen to working muscles is also relevant. Ryan explains how improving our CO2 tolerance can improve oxygen delivery, making workouts less stressful and improving performance. The less CO2 you can tolerate the quicker you are going to want to exhale it from your body—that’s why we default to shallow, panting, inefficient breaths - not only during workouts but also at rest.

This stimulates sympathetic (fight or flight) nervous system function while nose breathing stimulates parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system function. The greater you can tolerate C02 the slower you will be able to exhale it. You’ll learn how to dabble in the popular practice of nose breathing both at rest and during workouts. Try the shiftadapt test (linked below) to see how well you tolerate CO2 now and track improvement over time.
