Episode-858- Lierre Keith on The Vegetarian Myth

Lierre Keith Author of The Vegetarian Myth

Lierre Keith Author of The Vegetarian Myth

I first found Lierre Keith on Peak Moment TV being interviewed by Janaia Donaldson.  She is the author of a book highly recommended by Robb Wolf called, “The Vegetarian Myth”.  When I heard her explain many of the roots of why we are told veganism is so good for us I knew I had to bring her on TSP.

The Forward of The Vegetarian Myth explains, “We’ve been told that a vegetarian diet can feed the hungry, honor the animals, and save the planet. Lierre Keith believed in that plant-based diet and spent twenty years as a vegan. But in The Vegetarian Myth, she argues that we’ve been led astray–not by our longings for a just and sustainable world, but by our ignorance.

The truth is that agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet, and more of the same won’t save us. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct, altered the climate, and destroyed the topsoil–the basis of life itself. Keith argues that if we are to save this planet, our food must be an act of profound and abiding repair: it must come from inside living communities, not be imposed across them.

Episode-800- Robb Wolf on Paleo Nutrition and Permaculture

Robb Wolf Collaborating on Another Best Seller!

Robb Wolf, a former research biochemist is the New York Times Best Selling author of  The Paleo Solution – The Original Human Diet.  A student of Prof. Loren Cordain, author of The Paleo Diet, Robb has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world via his top ranked iTunes podcast, book and seminars.

Robb has functioned as a review editor for the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism, is co-founder of the nutrition and athletic training journal, The Performance Menu, co-owner of NorCal Strength & Conditioning, one of the Men’s Health “top 30 gyms in America” and co-owner of Paleo Brands Inc. a paleo food company selling meals and snacks featuring grass fed meat, wild caught fish and all organic ingredients.

Today he joins us to discuss paleo nutrition and the misconceptions in modern nutritional science.  We also discuss his new entry into the world of Permaculture.  Interviewing Robb was like talking to an old friend and more like having a bad ass co-host then a typical guest interview.  I loved learning from him and I loved his openness to learn more about modern agricultural problems as well.

Some of you guys have questioned if this is a real “survival topic”, well friends I have given you 800 episodes now, do me a favor and give this an open minded listen and please listen to my explanation of why this is indeed a survival topic in today’s intro/housekeeping segment.

Episode-763- The Paleo Prepper Mindset

Yesterday I did a post about my 18 month experience of eating mostly paleo and my final 90 days of doing it almost totally hard core.  The responses are mixed, mostly anyone that has tried it is very much in agreement with me, those opposed are mostly rehashing dogma.

So today we are going to discuss this subject, I will clarify myself on a few things (such as exercise) and explain some of the science.  Mostly though I want to share my experience, my results and how as a prepper you address food storage when focusing on a “paleo” lifestyle.

Join me today as I discuss…

  • It isn’t a “diet” in our modern vocabulary
  • It isn’t just meat and fat (my partial list of foods I eat)
  • My epiphany on how to choose what I eat
  • My results
  • Beer and alcohol
  • How I actually “exercise”
  • How our ancestors exercised
  • The many problems with modern exercise
  • The reality that some must exercise in a more conventional way
  • The problem with modern medical “wisdom”
  • Why what you “believe” is irrelevant
  • Why some people are “healthy” on food I consider unhealthy
  • Why I believe fermented foods are ancient
  • Why I believe anthropology over ideology
  • My thoughts on the “Paleo Homestead”
  • Why “low carb recipes” mostly bore me
  • 30 Days and judge it for yourself
