140: Butter? Steak? Go for it – but pay attention to THIS

by | Feb 22, 2021 | 1 comment

If you’re anything like my patients, you’re probably pretty confused about all the nutrition advice out there.

And when it comes to diets — forget about it. Should you go vegan? What about the carnivore diet? Maybe you’re keto curious…

Well, my guest today is the perfect person to help sort all this out. 

He’s Dr. Mark Hyman, multiple New York Times best-selling author, Head of Strategy and Innovation at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, and host of the Doctor’s Farmacy Podcast. 

And he’s just written a brand new book called The Pegan Diet: 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World.

On today’s episode, you’re going to discuss the TRUTH about meat, what the food pyramid should REALLY look like, and the shocking shortcomings of the vegan diet.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What the paleo and vegan diets have in common — and it’s a LOT more than you think (2:30)
  • The one “good bug” you need to help “patch up” a leaky guy (and maybe even increase your lifespan!) (6:20)
  • Why eating THIS type of meat is like drinking a cup of green tea! (10:55)
  • What happens when vegetarians and meat eaters shop at the same store (the results are pretty surprising) (13:40)
  • The single most important rule for eating any type of meat (15:30)
  • Why butter is BACK on the menu (but only THIS type) (17:35)
  • What many vegan diets get WRONG (and how to fix without eating animal products) (20:15)
  • How the health of your microbiome is actually connected to the health of our environment (25:05)
  • Why even “innocuous” foods can sometimes trigger a massive autoimmune response (32:30)
