Paul Saladino is the leading authority on the science and application of the carnivore diet. He is board-certified in psychiatry and completed his residency at the University of Washington. He attended medical school at the University of Arizona where he worked with Dr. Andrew Weil focusing on integrative medicine and nutritional biochemistry. His new incredible book called the "Carnivore Code” just came out last month and has been climbing towards a best seller— it may already be by the time this comes out. Paul is a lot of fun, he’s super charismatic, full of energy and passionate about living what he calls, “a radical life” through movement, spending time in nature & cultivating mindfulness.
This conversation is science-heavy people— so be ready.
We get down on so much insightful information such as:
Pauls backstory + how he arrived at the Carnivore diet
His experience doing a Vegan diet
His hypothesis behind proposed issues in digesting meat
Why being intentional with your diet is so important
Why it’s so important to regard the history of meat-eating and it’s valuable play to optimizing our health and longevity
Why having an ACIDIC stomach is essential for healthy digestion and health overall
The ESSENTIAL mineral we need to support optimal acidity
The difference between the BIO-AVAILABILITY in plant foods vs animal foods
Some of the anti-nutrients that plants possess
What does the Carnivore entail + The different degrees of eating a Carnivore diet
His hypothesis on why he believes plants are “fall back foods”
How the indigenous around the world detoxify plants before eating them
How eating meat helped our brains to develop
How to CORRECTLY eat a Carnivore diet for optimal health
Who is the Carnivore diet for?
The flaw with Epidemiology studies “
How to SPEND your calories in your health’s best interest
Your microbiome on a Carnivore diet and the lack of fiber in it
Polyphenols what are they? What is their play on our health?
And so much more.
One thing I love about having a podcast that is geared to optimize your Self-Development, Life Performance + Health, is having the opportunity to bring on real experts like Paul, who can speak with evidence-based information on subjects in health/wellness that could be really valuable to our optimization.
In my opinion, to continue our growth + to accelerate our greatest performance in life, its important to keep an open mind so that we can invite new information that may be useful to our process. It’s like Bruce Lee says: “Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own.”
There are so many people who are thriving on the Carnivore diet so my goal with this episode to give you the most scientific based information on this diet through Paul’s expertise in this area as it may be useful to you. I will say moving forward on all health/diet talks- this is episode is meant to educate not to prescribe- that’s for your doctor only.
I genuinely loved this talk with Paul and think you will too, regardless of your diet preferences.
