Most diets are really just guessing games. Even though a diet might claim to be the ultimate solution for health and weight loss, chances are they fail most people. And there’s a big (simple) reason why.

Since the beginning of history, humans have tried to eat everything. If you can get some of it in your mouth, somebody has tried to eat it. Sometimes it made them feel good. Sometimes it made them keel over and die. Most importantly, someone was there to document the results as time has gone on, and the foundational human diet was born.

For many years now, I often sit back and wonder what humans were really designed to eat, and if there’s really any “perfect food” for us. That question has driven me to keep searching, to keep experimenting, and to even roll the dice with my own food choices a time or fifty.

I’m so over taking courageous crap shoots with health now-a-days. I’ve settled in comfortably knowing that I can look back on the wisdom of our ancestors and know exactly what while help me be the healthiest, fittest version of myself.

This is why I love Dr. Cate Shanahan’s work so much. She has truly encapsulated what the human diet looks like. Her seminal work Deep Nutrition takes us all into the intersecting realms of our ancestral diet and what our genes truly expect from us. Today she is gracing us with her wisdom on The Model Health Show, and I’m truly honored to share her with you!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why analyzing healthy people is the missing link in today’s medicine.
  • How Dr. Shanahan began advising the Los Angeles Lakers.
  • What The Human Diet is.
  • What the 4 Pillars of World Cuisine are.
  • Why people generally think that fresh foods refer only to plants.
  • The 3 types of enzymes you need.
  • Why fermented foods are a coordinated effort to make.
  • How our senses were once used for safely testing.
  • Which food compound has been found to be drawn to your joints.
  • Which important nutrient helps hold our cells together.
  • What the closest vegetable equivalent to bone broth would be.
  • How eating organ meats were intertwined in our evolution.
  • How to incorporate more movement and family involvement in food preparation.
  • What commonly overlooked influences can affect your genetic expression.
  • The shocking truth about how vegetable oils impact your body.
  • How to upgrade your oils and fats for better health.

The word “fat” can drum up a whole lot of uncomfortable emotions. Whether it’s fat in our food or fat on our bodies, there’s a pervasive fear around fat that makes many of us turn our heads and run.

Is this a logical fear? Well, sure it is! Especially if you’re under the impression that fat in our food and fat on our bodies are the same thing. Rationality would tell you to just steer clear of fat, and a fit, healthy body will be your grand prize. There’s just one tiny, little problem…

Millions of people have avoided dietary fat with ninja-like covert precision, yet collectively we’ve seen our society’s rates of obesity and body-fat related illness skyrocket. Was the fat in our diets the problem all along? Or was there something else happening behind the scenes?

To answer your fat-related questions we have on one of the top Functional Medicine Physicians on the planet, Mark Hyman, MD.

Dr. Hyman has been a true pioneer in the field of health and wellness, and he has ten #1 New York Times bestselling books to prove it. He walks his talk, and today he’s here to share some of the most important information regarding your nutrition choices that you’ll ever hear. So, tune in, take good notes, and enjoy!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Dr. Hyman’s surprising story that led him to practice medicine.
  • Why most of today’s physicians are not trained in preventative healthcare.
  • Where the controversial belief that dietary fat is bad for our health stems from.
  • How today’s fear of fat is also a language issue.
  • What’s at the root of health issues like diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity.
  • What some of the biggest benefits of dietary fats are.
  • The impact that dietary fat has on insulin.
  • Where to find nutritious fats with the most historical usage.
  • Critical insights about the potential dangers of vegetable oils.
  • Important tips for buying and storing olive oil.
  • How dietary fats impact brain health.

You’ve probably heard the saying “mind over matter” before... but what the heck does that even mean?

Well, to put it simply… the thoughts and beliefs that we carry determine the actions that we take in our lives. Your mind is strong enough to move the rest of your “matter”, and that’s why your mindset matters so much.

Today you’re going to learn some important decisions that you get to make in determining how your mind (and thus your body) works. It’s You vs. You in the only competition that really counts… the competition for real estate in that beautiful mind of yours! The space in your mind that determines your approach to life is up for grabs, and you get to choose. Will it be an empowering mindset that helps to put more success on automatic in your life? Or will it be a disempowering mindset that holds you back and keeps you from reaching your potential? You and I both know which one you will choose, and it all starts now by pressing play and taking action!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why our psychology is more important that our mechanics.
  • How short-term losses can make us give up.
  • Why changing your mindset (and actions) happens instantly.
  • Why instant gratification can be a killer of success.
  • The difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.
  • How certain inflammatory words cause many people to retreat.
  • Why sameness is one of the biggest obstacles to improving your results.
  • What obstacles and turbulence have to do with achieving greatness.
  • A quick solution to protect yourself from excuses.
  • The difference between self-confidence and others-confidence.
  • How to have tenacity in the face of opposition.

  • The shocking amount of toxic chemicals that are released into our environment.
  • Why female egg production is different from what was once believed.
