I sympathize with those who don’t really listen to many of my podcast interviews anymore, since in so many since way back, I get asked the same questions and respond largely the same way.
I wanted this one, with Adam Smith, Prymal Radio, to be different and I think we achieved that. One way to look at it is an accounting how wrong I think I’ve been about so much over the years. I also had my Fitbit on while I was pacing the house on Skype, via my phone, and I walked 5,000 steps during the interview (I’d told Adam 4,000, but it turned out it was 5 once I manually synched).
Here’s the main points.
[10:00] There is such a thing as essential carbohydrates
[14:40] The Japanese people are waiting to see what happens to the American children as they grow up on GMO foods.
[20:35] A lot of autoimmune diseases are linked to gut health.
[24:40] Richard talks about FitBit
[36:30] Probiotics has helped with Richard’s gut health, but he often finds himself hungry with no appetite.
[40:10] Read the ingredient list. Keep food simple.
[41:30] What are some of the common mistakes people do when trying to lose weight?
[53:50] Cultures who live the longest eat plenty of carbohydrates.
[56:10] People initially feel good when they eat a low carb diet, but then afterwards it catches up with them.
