086: Why to stop keto (at least for now)

by | Mar 23, 2020 | 6 comments

Food is medicine — and my guest today is living proof.

In 2000, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and within a few years, she was confined to a wheelchair.

But instead of just relying on conventional medicine, she radically transformed her diet. Within a year, she’d ditched the wheelchair — and the cane — and was back on her beloved bicycle.

She’s Dr. Terry Wahls, a professor at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, a bestselling author, and one of the foremost experts on the power of nutrition to reverse autoimmune disease.

On today’s show, Dr. Wahls and I are going to tackle hot topics like the keto diet and intermittent fasting, discuss whether fruit is really all it’s cracked up to be, and discuss why gluten-free doesn’t always mean there’s no gluten at all.

Don’t miss this one!

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How to get the benefits of keto WITHOUT the restrictive diet (7:00)
  • The stem cell technique that can help you age “backward” like Benjamin Button (and it WON’T require $15,000 treatments) (11:00)
  • One surprising food you’re probably eating every day (and maybe even every meal) that’s actually spiking your blood sugar (13:45)
  • Why eating a pound of this so-called “superfood” every week may seriously damage your digestive health (17:45)
  • When it’s actually a good idea to eat NOTHING but meat (19:20)
  • Why our ancestors probably skipped breakfast (and maybe even lunch!) — and what that meant for their waistlines (29:15)
  • How the fruits we eat are VERY different from the fruits our ancestors ate (and why it matters) (34:15)
  • How these common diet “cheats” can have a MAJOR negative impact on your health (40:00)
  • Should you actually avoid eating leafy greens? The answer is YES — but only under these circumstances… (47:05)
