Join Food For Thought Co-Hosts Peter & Naomi for a conversation with Dr. Kaayla Daniel on practical and fun ways to navigate the Holidays with ease and aplomb so YOU can avoid the minefield of Holiday Crap while enjoying the rich luxurious foods which are actually healthy for you! Lots of practical ideas and strategies including the mental game and approach that is practical and not didactic. This is more of a conceptual guideline conversation than a hard and set meal plan so the listener is equipped with the knowledge, thus power, to come out on top in the New Year!
Join us for an enlightening and fact filled conversation with Peter Ballerstedt PhD on "The Ruminant Revolution!" Counter-intuitive to most of the environmental science in the media, ruminants play a vital role in the eco-system, including carbon sequestration and your own ! This podcast covers the gamet from differences in the digestive tracts of ruminants from other mammals (including humans) to their role in nature, to nutritional facts about ruminant red meat and how they fit into the OFM Program. We also dispense a lot of the polarization when it comes to sourcing red meat to take out the stress and fear most consumers are led to believe about ruminant meats and feeding/grazing practices. Boatloads of "Meaty" information without the fluff or hyperbole, which the listener can use to improve not only their health and well being. All from the people "Leading the Science" on fat adapted health!
Another groundbreaking podcast from the leaders in fat adapted performance. For the past 20 months OFM has been developing and implementing the inoculation of Nitrosomonas eutropa bacteria for a number of natural fat adapted performance enhancements. These include, but are not limited too, improved vasodilation and thermoregulation; two factors which are critical to performance.
Prepare to rethink everything you thought you knew about Cholesterol with this conversation with Dave Feldman. As you will learn cholesterol and cholesterol dynamics are very much a part of Optimizing Fat Metabolism. As Dave explains cholesterol's principle job is that of energy substrate delivery and in a fat adapted athletes we begin to see how this vital element of every cell in our body really works. Learn how VLDL particles may not be so bad after all when the individual is burning "fat as fuel". This is the ground breaking information OFM provides for you, the athlete to achieve that optimal state of health and fitness.
Dr, Daniel returns for a conversation on Thyroid Health. Lots of practical information for maintaining optimal Thyroid Health such as all the various food, environmental and lifestyle factors which can negatively impact the Thyroid. We also get into the basics of function and interaction on a level the average consumer can consume and use to his/her benefit. We look at how an OFM lifestyle can produce the very kind of Thyroid Health people desire. . Another key area of discussion centers around carbohydrate restriction and its impacts on the Thyroid and Thyroid Hormone values.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Marita Wallace PhD who is Post Docing in the Kieth Baar Lab at UC Davis studying muscle hypertrophy using mice/rat models. Her personal story thus personal interest in the Ketogenic Diet prompted a portion of her research to look at the effects of ketosis on muscle hypertrophy and degeneration. Great follow up to Kaayla Daniel's podcast as we learn what the emerging science says about the collagen found in broth!
Join us for a great conversation with Dr. Kaayla Daniel, aka: "The Naughty Nutritionist" on the importance of incorporating bone broth into the diet and how to make it work in the real world. Kaayla also discusses the science and parses out the myth from the reality on this vital food for humans.
Jenny Hart shares her OFM experience and how it has improved her performance and taken her to the next level of not only making the podium as an IM Age Grouper but WINNING her F50-54 AG at IM 70.3 Bintan and even 7th Overall Female!
Nikki Kimball joins us for a candid interview on her OFM Journey from her teenage years as an elite Biathlete to the present! This is a CRITICAL interview for young athletes and parents of athlete, in particular young women. Fat and the ability to metabolize fat is absolutely critical for optimal health and performance but particularly with young women at a critical stage of their life! In the natural scheme of things, young people begin to exert independence during this time but as they exert this independence from their parents they also become particularly impressionable to outside influences to anchor to.....Nikki puts this in perspective in amazing ways!
