10 & 2 Q: Does Dietary Cholesterol Affect Blood Cholesterol?

Whole textbooks have been written on the topic of cholesterol and lipoproteins, yet it’s not uncommon to see folks on the interwebz reduce this complex subject to something that appears simpler than a recipe for boiling water.

Few appreciate that there is a massive amount of information related to the biochemistry, metabolism, and immunology of these critical molecules. Should one desire to be just a bit conversant on the topic there is a lot of material to cover.

That said, there are still so many unanswered questions…this video is a very brief attempt to provide a bit of context and hopefully a sense that if folks are providing a sound bite and calling it a day, they have perhaps not put in much time understanding this topic.

If you’re on or have dabbled with a low-carb diet—paleo or ketogenic for example—you may have noticed some symptoms of what’s commonly called the ‘keto flu.’

What’s happening in your body to cause these effects when going low carb? How can you fix it? Is sodium the knight in shining armor? Is adding extra salt to your meals enough or do you need to supplement?

In that quick 10 and 2 video I’ll go over electrolytes and why sodium is SO important.

Lighting the Spark with Food: 11 Paleo Aphrodisiacs

Before the advent of Valentine’s Day, romantic dinners by candlelight, and libido-boosting supplements, ancient cultures turned to the one aspect of life they knew they could rely on when it comes to lighting the spark of arousal: food. These key foods, referred to as aphrodisiacs, have been used for thousands of years in rituals, rites, and pre-wedding appetizers to nudge the body and mind toward a heightened state of arousal.…

10 and 2 Qs: How to decide if you should fast, drink bulletproof coffee, go keto, or do any other diet or lifestyle protocol

One of the most common questions I get is: “Should I try XYZ health diet or protocol?”

And while, yes, most of the time, the dietary intervention in question can be a great tool, that doesn’t mean it’s going to transform you into a glowing vision of health.

In this video I share my advice to people when deciding whether or not that given dietary intervention is right for them:

10 & 2 Qs: Go Keto With Cool Whip & Peanut Butter ??!

Have you heard the latest? You can go keto just by eating cool whip and peanut butter! ….

Honestly, folks. Some days I open the internets and immediately want to crawl into a hole.

Keto is insanely popular right now…and for good reason.

100s of thousands of people are transforming their lives with this way of eating.

But at the same time, the hype and misleading claims are astonishing… Watch this video for my real take… 

If you can’t tell if a claim is “real” or a parody, things have gone to a bad, bad place. For example, this peanut butter and cool whip idea… HINT: NO, eating processed, calorically dense “food” is not the way to reach your goals.

And the sad thing is there are actually people selling keto programs who are recommending this (and people who believe them and buy!). Oh and they’re telling people to skip the all-natural stuff and eat Skippy PB, no less! Have you noticed these overhyped claims too?
