And we’re at it again with Q&A #11 with Robb and Nicki for Episode 412 of The Paleo Solution Podcast!

Show Notes:

1. [2:27] Valter Longo’s Longevity Diet
Wayne says:
What’s your take on Longo’s view that protein should be limited because it raises IGF-1? He says that none of the populations that have the largest percentages of centenarians consume much protein. I understand that IGF-1 has a beneficial anabolic effect but high levels have been linked to cancer and other chronic diseases. Can you give us your views on this?

2. [14:30] OMAD
Eric says:
Hi Robb,
Just wondering what your opinion of eating OMAD? And is it beneficial to still eat keto while doing it?

3. [18:18] Sun screen
Duey says:
What are your thoughts on sun screen.

What draw backs are there to using it?

What’s the risk of skin cancer if you progressively build up sun exposure and don’t burn.

4. [24:25] Pulling and eccentric exercise only
Patrick says:
Hi Robb and Nicky. First I just wanted to say  thank you for everything that you wrote and said over the years. You and others like Mark Sisson helped me lose over a hundred pounds and keeping it of since 2013.
My question : is there any counter indication of doing only pulling exercise or eccentric ? I suffered rotator cuff injuries couple years ago and no matter how careful I am everytime I tried to do heavy push exercise, even not so heavy, the pain comes back.
My only goal at this point is to maintain as much lean body mass as I can so I can grow old and farm coconuts with my great great grand kids
Thanks alot again for everything

5. [28:00] Water retention during Luteal phase
Angel says:
Hi Robb and Nicki,
I love the Q&A episodes! I find them very informative. I just started reading Wired to Eat and its such an enjoyable read! Your sense of humor keeps me engaged, unlike many other nutrition books that read like text books. A little about me: I just turned 40, 5’4”, 133 lbs and metabolically healthy. My goal is to lower my body fat to 20% (currently 24%). I started with the keto diet over a year ago, and initially was able to lose weight. But I find it quite difficult to adhere to, and the sugar/carb restrictions triggered many binge eating episodes that I never experienced before keto. Now I’ve relaxed on the carb restrictions by allowing myself to eat fruits and starchy vegetables and my cravings are more under control (fingers crossed).
However I still face another hurdle in my fat loss journey , namely PMS cravings and water retention. I retain so much water during my luteal phase I can’t even fit into clothes that are normally loose fitting. Logically I would lower  carbs and increase fat to reduce water retention, but the the problem with that is I also crave sugar (mainly chocolate) and carbs (pretzels). I also find it hard to fast during PMS (I normally do 16:8 IF) as I feel more hungry. I always gain weight during luteal phase, which practically undo all my previous efforts. Do you have any suggestions on what to do during luteal phase? Do we eat more carbs or more fat? Any supplements? Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Angel

How Fat Babies Develop Healthy Adult Brains

What’s not to love about a fat baby? Bouncy, bonny babies are adorable. But that little cherub wasn’t born chubby just to trigger the human bonding process. Without that full-body cushion of subcutaneous fat, the risk of damage to the rapidly developing brain would be severe. The fat-free option would be a high-risk strategy at any age, but especially for babies. Humans are the only land mammals born fat. Even…

Depression: In the First or the Second Brain?

Episode 410 – Robb and Nicki Q&A #10

And we’re back with Q&A #10 with Robb and Nicki for Episode 410 of The Paleo Solution Podcast.

Don’t forget to send in your own podcast question to use here: https://robbwolf.com/contact/submit-a-question-for-the-podcast/

Show Notes:

1. [2:14] Calcium

Holly says:
Hi Robb – love your work. I’m wondering what your thoughts are on getting adequate calcium when doing a ketogenic diet for fat loss. I’m following the Ketogains macros and am a smallish female (125 pounds at 5’3) so my calorie count is quite low. I don’t tolerate dairy very well and there is only so much spinach one can eat in a day. I do eat canned salmon with bones but not every day.  Seeds are too caloric when fat loss is the goal and I’m a bit concerned about supplements (Chris kresser has indicated calcium can end up in the wrong spot ex arteries). What about bone meal as a supplement?  Other ideas?

2. [5:40] Asthma

Jenny says:
Do you have any suggestions on how to treat or eliminate asthma caused by allergies, such as allergies to pollens and grass – not to food?  Thank you.

3. [8:57] Mixing high cholesterol, and high fat foods with fruit, corn, and potatoes

Justin says:
Hi Robb!

My girlfriend is Paleo, moderate carbs and high fat diet. I am wondering if she could be damaging her health when she eats steak with corn, fruit, potatos, or sugar of any kind.
Can you elaborate on mixing those kinds of carbs with high fat, high  Cholesteryl meat and on the glycation process?  Will this cause   Atherosclerosis?  And if not, what causes atherosclerosis?

Thanks Robb!  I love the podcast!

4. [13:11] CBD Oil

Brad says:
What are your thoughts on the efficacy of CBD oil? If I wanted to try some what would I look for in a specific brand? I have noticed a wide variety of price ranges so how can one determine the quality of an oil?

Thanks,

Brad Hasse

5. (Question Skipped)

6. [16:03] Fatty acid profile for grades of beef

Lee says:
I’ve read articles (most of which had ties to the cattle industry) talking of the improved fatty acid profile as the grade of beef goes up from select, choice, to prime particularly for fatty cuts like brisket.  Is this really significant?  When I’m going to smoke a brisket (that I rub in olive oil and eat while sipping green tea) I usually trim most of the hard external fat and am really only dealing with the subcutaneous fat.  I think the take away from grass-fed vs grain fed is that yes grass is better but it’s only in the margin (same amount of Omega-6 but more Omega-3 for grass-fed and the absolute amount of omega-6 is what’s important in the presence of sufficient omega-3 i.e. improving the ratio by taking lots of fish oil doesn’t offset the high omega-6 load).  I’m guessing this probably the case with the higher grades of beef relative to the lower the grades.  However, the higher grades are definitely more tasty.  Any insights”

Thanks,

Lee Heifner
