KDP Ep 022: Burning Fat, Not Sugar with Dr. Ted Naiman

*This episode originally aired on 5/14/18

Welcome back KD Tribe! Today we have a very special guest and personal hero of Dr. Matt’s: Dr. Ted Naiman!

Dr. Theodore Naiman is a board-certified Family Medicine physician and has devoted much of his career to the study of diet and exercise and their relationship to health. He has used these diet and exercise techniques to treat thousands of patients. He has seen miraculous health transformations, which can literally cure metabolic diseases (diabetes for example) and autoimmune diseases (such as IBS). He feels an obligation to help as many people as possible find their path to optimum health.

In this episode we discuss:

How he went from vegetarian to low carb.

Why the insulin hypothesis theory of obesity is starting to crumble

How insulin resistance is actually a consequence of overfilling your fat stores

Why Dr. Naiman moved away from ordering tons of tests for his patients and now focuses on the low hanging fruit.

Why his advice always goes back to diet and exercise

Why resistance training is optimal for body recomposition

Why a gym membership isn’t a necessity for strength training

Why you need to focus on what you CAN have on low carb, not what you can’t.

Why protein should be a protein set for the individual person

What is the theory of protein leverage satiety?

How you can still get fat even when being strict keto

How long should Dr. Matt keep up his “high” protein keto cut?

Why Dr. Naiman considers himself of a “gluconeogenic” diet

Should Dr. Matt be concerned when his blood sugar dips (ie hypoglycemia) on this aggressive cut?

KDP Ep 021: Optimising Nutrition and Shifting Paradigms with Marty Kendall

*This episode originally aired on 5/7/18

Welcome back KD Tribe! Today we have our first recurring guest, Marty Kendall from Optimising Nutrition. If you remember, Marty was the very first guest on the show. It only made sense that going into episode 21 that we would circle back with Marty. If you have noticed, this show focuses on whole foods and nutrient density, and we believe wholeheartedly in what Marty is doing with his tool the Nutrient Optimiser.

Marty is an engineer whose interest in nutrition was spawned out of necessity trying to better manage his wife’s Type 1 diabetes as well as his own family history of type 2 diabetes and obesity.

In early 2015 he started blogging at OptimisingNutrition.com. He tries to provide clarity around many of the confusing and conflicting issues in nutrition, often using a quantitative approach.

While his blog posts can sometimes go deep on a topic, he has also worked to develop a shortlist of optimal foods to suit different goals by balancing the sometimes-competing parameters of nutrient density, insulin load and energy density.

His most recent project is the Nutrient Optimiser which consolidates his thinking into an automated system that reviews a person’s current diet to provide a shortlist of recommended foods to provide the nutrients they are not getting enough of while supporting their goals, whether they be diabetes control, weight loss, bodybuilding or athletic performance.

In this episode we cover:

Optimal blood sugar and ketones for nutritional ketosis

Why you shouldn’t chase high ketone levels if your goal is fat loss

Why insulin isn’t the devil that we’ve made it out to be

Why you may be overweight but not necessarily insulin resistant

Why “Personal Fat Threshold” is important and why you should care

If you are limiting calories, why you should focus on nutrient dense foods

Why your adipose tissue is actually a protective mechanism

The role of protein in the diet, and why we shouldn’t fear it in keto

Why hormones matter and why calories still matter.

Why tracking blood ketones becomes a waste of money for most people.

*This episode originally published on 4/30/18

Hello KD Tribe! Welcome back to episode 20 of the Ketodontist Podcast. In today’s show Dr. Matt will be talking about context in keto and paleo, and why it matters. Too many people are making blanket statements and are forgetting a little thing called nuance. Dr. Matt also gives an update o week 2 of his 12 week “higher protein” keto cut. Topics covered in this episode are:

Why terms like “low, medium, and high” are useless without context

How people can consume over 100 grams of carbs and still be keto

Why protein should be a target

Why it’s ok to be hungry when trying to lose weight.

Why you should leverage fat intake according to what your goal is.

Why you should focus on nutrient density first and foremost.

Hello KD Tribe! Welcome back to episode 19 of the Ketodontist Podcast.

KDP Ep 017: Ketone Supplements- Worth it or nah?

*This episode originally aired 3/19/18

Welcome back to episode 17 of the Ketodontist Podcast. In today’s show Dr. Matt will be giving his $0.02 on a topic that we get a lot of questions about: Ketone supplements, also known as exogenous ketones. As someone who has used these for weeks and months in the past, Dr. Matt is going to give you his honest opinion and share the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Note: We found a GREAT blog post by Virta Health that is very much inline with this episode that we found after it the show was recorded. So while it’s not mentioned in the episode, we wanted to link it in the show notes.

We hope you enjoy this brutally honest episode on a very controversial topic.

KDP Episode 015: What is Sustainable?

*This episode originally aired on 2/12/18

Today’s show is all about a very important topic that just isn’t being talked about enough: the topic of sustainability. There is a lot of fear mongering going on that is anti-meat, stating that is ruining both our health and our environment. This episode is to cut through that misinformation and help clear the air.

Be sure to check out the resources I mention in the show that go into sustainability and regenerative agriculture.

KDP Ep 014: Getting Back to Basics

*This episode originally aired on 2/5/18

We’re back! After taking a long holiday I was chomping at the bit to get back to talking with you beautiful people. In today’s episode we’re going to the basics.

The amount of misinformation, hype, and infighting in the nutrition world seems to be multiplying daily. We need to take a step back, take a deep breath, and start looking at the foundation of proper nutrition.

In this episode I’m going to get back to explaining what I consider the “proper” way of doing keto, and why we shouldn’t be dogmatic about it.

I also rant a bit on why both calories and hormones matter, and why just like with most things in life, the truth is somewhere in the middle.

KDP Episode 013: Keto Masterclass with Robb Wolf

*This episode originally published on 12/11/17

Greetings Ketodontist tribe! We have a HUGE show today. Today we have none other than top ranked podcaster, world class level coach, and two time New York Times bestselling author Robb Wolf. Robb is one the founding fathers of the Paleo movement and getting that diet and lifestyle off the ground. I am both humbled and honored for him to be a guest on the show to talk about his newest endeavor, his Keto Masterclass.

In this episode we discuss:

Why the “Paleo guy” would create an education course on Keto
Why we shouldn’t be dogmatic in our dietary views
Why keto should be seen as a tool, and not a one-size-fits-all fix
How there are plenty of other ways to be in ketosis other than a high fat diet
Why he created a mixed media masterclass to teach keto, rather than write another book.
Why he wants to triage who keto is NOT right for
Why he gravitated toward the Ketogains approach to keto
Why foundations like sleep, stress reduction, movement, and mindset are critical to your success when going keto.
Why ketosis may or may not have been the natural state of our ancestors
Why each person needs an individualized approach
And much more!
