Eating only meat. Could this be a serious approach to human nutrition? Are you not going to get goat, cancer or a heart attack by doing this? Dr. Paul Saladino  is literary turning the world of nutrition upside down and seem to question almost everything we have learned until today. He's worldwide, one of the most wanted guest for health-related podcasts and shows. And now he is with us on the Bio360 podcast and I'm going to pick his brain about the carnivore diet and we're hopefully going to go beyond previously asked question about the carnivore diet, plants and nutrition.

  • What is a carnivore diet?
  • There's are least a half dozen diets that claim to be ancestral. What did humans eat over the last 2 million years?
  • Eating meat, especially red meat got a very bad reputation in the last decades. Why did that happen and what are the arguments against it.
  • Lets talk animals:
    • Which nutrients do we find in animals? How is the bioavailability? Which forms of Vitamins do we find in animals vs. plants?
    • Why nose to tail?
    • Do we need fiber to poop?
    • How much fat should we eat and how can we get it. How do you get it?
    • What about rendered fat?
  • How much protein is good for us?
    • Protein activates mTor. Should we be concerned about that?
    • What about ammonia? Isn’t it going through the roof? Isn't it hard on the liver and kidneys? Doesn't it disrupt sleep quality? What are the potential (negative) effects of the fermentation of protein? How is protein digested?
    • How much protein do we need, how much is too much?
  • Lets talk plants
    • How healthy are plants (leafy greens, organic vegetables, tuberous, condiments)
    • What are plant toxins and how harmful are they? (oxalates, phytic acid, alkaloids ect.)
    • What about the much-praised phytonutrients? Do we need them or are they even beneficial?
    • What about the bioavailability of the nutrients in plants (b-vitamins, minerals, Vit. K, Omega 3)
    • Do plants always have a price to pay? Is that a real problem or should we simply vary our plant based diet as much as possible as nature suggests with seasons and a nomadic lifestyle?
  • You focus a lot on micronutrients in the animal like vitamins and minerals. What about biophotons. Others would argue, that we eat light through fresh plants and that dead animals are indeed dead food.
  • What’s the role of the microbiome? Aren´t they microbes creating the nutrients out of fiber and starches, that you say are lacking in the plants?
  • Steven Gundry talks a lot about a bacterial species named Akkermansia. We are supposed to feed this species with a lot of fiber. What do you think about that?
  • Do you see any value in medicinal mushrooms? I know they are not plants. They are loaded with chemical compounds eg. Polysaccharides, like beta D- glucan, Triterpenes, alkaloids. Didn’t we always use them, like Paul Stamets claims?
  • How can something like the Hippocrates Institute be so successful over 40 years, giving plant toxins in huge quantities to the people. Brian Clements heavily promotes wheat grass, when Steven Gundry calls wheatgrass one of the most toxic foods among goji berries and soy on the face of the planet.
  • Is eating high on the food chain still possible in our toxic environment? What about accumulation of toxins in animals and fish?
  • Aren't plants hormetic stressors, that help gene expression for reducing inflammation, longevity and so forth? Just like heat, cold, exercise and fasting? Do our cells need to be stressed mildly to function well?
  • Do you see a need for silicium from nettles and horsetail? Do animal products contain silicium?
  • What about the medicinal use of plants?
  • Is a life without garlic really diserable? What about Coffee?
  • Most important question: Is chocolate toxic?
  • Where can we find you?
