KDP Episode 019: Getting the Skinny On Protein

*This episode originally aired on 4/22/18

Hello KD Tribe! Welcome back to episode 19 of the Ketodontist Podcast. In today’s show Dr. Matt will be talking about “high protein” version of keto, as well as the 12 week challenge that he is currently going through. You may have other folks having ill effects eating protein in their ketogenic diets. Let’s see how Dr. Matt does, not only for one week, but for TWELVE WEEKS!

Do we need to be concerned about “too high of protein” in a ketogenic diet?

Do we need to go full carnivore?

Do calories matter?

Which is better for body recomposition: cardio or weight training?

We hope you enjoy this episode and we also hope you continue to follow Dr. Matt over the next 12 weeks as he reports back on his own “high protein” experiment.

Hello again KD Tribe! Today we have our first episode really going into the oral-systemic link and we do so by interviewing Dr. Tom Larkin of POW Hygiene. Dr. Larkin was one of the first people I connected with when I first started going down this path of complete body wellness, and it was so fun to reconnect with him and talk about the science, the screening, and the treatment of oral infections and how that contributes to our overall health. I hope you enjoy today’s epidsode!

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.

Last week it was reported that a 3 year old girl has been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. This is the track we’re on folks, and it’s not a good one.

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.

*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!

Ketodontist Podcast- Episode 11: Keto Mythbusting with Tyler Cartwright of Ketogains (Part 1)

 

 

*This episode originally published on 10/24/17

Welcome to Episode 11 of the Ketodontist Podcast!  SUPER excited for our guest today.  His name is Tyler Cartwright.  He is leads the group KetoGains alongside previous show guest Luis Villasenor. This is part 1 of 2.

Tyler has a fascination with learning, reading, and self-improvement as a person.  It’s truly a bit of an obsession for him – with a personal library which currently clocks in at just north of 2300 books!  At his heaviest he weighed in at 505 lbs, and set out on a journey of self-discovery and leveraged his love of learning with his backgound in science to arrive at a ketogenic diet as a tool for his weight loss.  After over a decade of eating a ketogenic diet, and having lost 295 pounds, he has helped to move the Ketogains community forward as one of the most successful communities of contextualized thought on the use of a ketogenic diet and the applications for fat loss, sports performance, and how to help people transform their lives.  The Ketogains clients have lost in excess of 20,000 in the last 18 months, and countless lives have been changed because of his insight, common-sense, and practical applications to diet, health, training, and living.

In this episode we discuss:
How Tyler has lost almost 300 lbs over the last decade.

Tyler’s past struggles with his weight.

How Atkins was a great start for him, and how his nutrition has evolved from there.

How he met Luis and how they ended up collaborating for KetoGains.

How Keto seems to attract Questioners and Rebels (ie Gretchen Ruben’s The Four Tendencies)

Why people get so hostile or defensive when discussing nutrition.

Why “Lazy” Keto works, until it doesn’t.

Why there is almost no such thing as “unprocessed” food anymore.

Why extended fasting may not be a great idea for some folks.

And more!
