Host Brad Kearns welcomes Dr. Greg Kelly, a naturopathic doctor, and expert in nutrition and anti-aging.
Dr. Greg is the founder of Neurohacker Collective. In this episode, you’ll learn about some cutting-edge longevity research to target senescent cells and help repair them before they become cancerous. Supplements like the popular anti-inflammatory quercetin and mushroom extracts have been proven effective, as has daily time-restricted feeding and occasional longer fasting periods. Dr. Kelly also discusses how important circadian rhythm is to health and longevity, and some ideas for how to optimize the various hormonal and metabolic functions that are tied to circadian rhythm. Hint: Don’t eat after 10 pm, because your stomach starts to produce high levels of acid to detoxify what is supposed to be an empty stomach. Regarding weight loss, Dr. Kelly provides a memorable insight about crash dieting, where the body reacts with a “body fat overshoot” aka “diet-induced lipolysis” to gain weight back quickly and often worse than where you started. Dr. Greg offers some great practical tips to spur fat loss the right way, such as increased daily movement and better sleep. Another cool tip is to track morning and evening body temperature, as Dr. Kelly notes that more variation in daily temperature is a sign of youthful functional age.

Host Brad Kearns goes deep into the fascinating world of the nose-to-tail carnivore diet with leading expert Dr. Paul Saladino. If you’ve heard of this emerging dietary strategy and don’t know what to think, Dr. Paul presents an extremely compelling and scientifically validated case for emphasizing nutrient-dense animal foods in your diet. Regarding the plant foods that we have long been told to make a dietary centerpiece, Dr. Paul proposes that the natural toxins contained in all plants may be compromising your health without you knowing it. If you have any form of nagging autoimmune or inflammatory conditions that aren’t responding to traditional treatment, consider a test period of exclusion of all plant foods to give your digestive system and potential leaky gut condition and chance to heal. Dr. Paul is the author of the bestseller The Carnivore Code. Learn more at CarnivoreMD.com

Beyond the need to observe the “180 minus age” in heartbeats per minute, the efficiency of our delivery of oxygen to working muscles is also relevant. Ryan explains how improving our CO2 tolerance can improve oxygen delivery, making workouts less stressful and improving performance.
