To be exact and the protein coming from both food and supplemental sources the vegans giving a soy protein supplement. While the omnivorous group was given way protein the findings after twelve weeks of identical exercise and protein intake what researchers concluding quote a high protein exclusively plant based diet is not different than a protein matched mixed diet and supporting muscle strength and mass cruel suggesting that protein source does not affect resistance training induced. Adaptations in untrained. Young men. consuming adequate amounts of protein in short plant. Protein is just as good and you can find a lake to that study right now in the episode notes.

"Know up the tension between what we were saying and what the conventional wisdom was. I remember that stake. I remember thinking. Oh this should be good. When i saw the cover because i had read your pieces in science and a recognized. Your name from I think you are on the staff there. You'd written some stuff about physics too. I think but anyway. I remember i recognize your name and i saw the steak and i thought oh this will be good and this is you can challenge. You can't expect as a journalist the challenge in this case in effect. Wow in that article was sixty years of thinking. Now i'm back that up to ninety or a hundred years of conventional wisdom and you'll make the argument that the the research Clinical research establishment the investigators working on this the public health authorities promoting it the dietitians who have learned this in school and are promoting it to their patients and all these people just wrong without expecting people in affectively all of them to disagree with you and if it was a small publication i was writing for then then then they could just ignore me but putting it on the cover. The new york times magazine made it impossible to ignore. I've learned to largely ignore the new york times so i would have been immune to Response i'm leaning in that direction smart surgery and certainly in the fields. I know well it's always a problem. You assume that the fields you don't. They're getting it right but if they're if we can trust the paper record who can we trust and this is another three hour conversation. We probably shouldn't have. It is so gary and michael. Pollen's book the omnivores dilemma. He has a felines in his introduction. About how dr robert atkins brought americans the very welcome news that they could eat more meat and lose weight just so long as they laid off the bread and pasta and michael even mentioned two thousand new york times article. And how you wrote about new study suggesting that the low fat orthodoxy of the nineteen seventies might be wrong and that that made his fat but rather the carbohydrates that we eat and he then wrote about how brendan pastas started disappearing almost overnight from supermarket shelves and restaurant menus as a result of your article. So do you remember that period. And we're curious were you surprised by how the atkins and other low carb approaches like the south beach diet for example suddenly became so popular. Well they had always been popular interesting things but they had always been something you never talked about. I mean atkins book Atkin's diet revolution was at one. Point was the best selling book in history but then it was considered quackery one of the things that i mean the tipping point in that article of mine. And this is what's intriguing using that phrase tipping point malcolm glad while in the new yorker three years earlier had done a piece on obesity. The pima paradox was called beautifully written pieces. Malcolm's always aren't in it. He in effect made fun of diet. Books and fad diets and atkins in particular. And when i came along in two thousand and one that we basically had the same assignment which was to understand the obesity epidemic and malcolm it sided with conventional wisdom. By the time..

"Bad calories was four hundred thousand words unfinished and eventually we published around one hundred and eighty thousand so i knew that there was a lot to unpack. There just has taken me twenty years to do it. And i still have two more books. I wanna write in that new york times article. You questioned the effectiveness of low fat diets. Which the government's dietary guidelines have been consistently recommending since the late nineteen seventies. You highlighter researching your article. That indicated a low carb approach was indeed an effective way for many people to lose weight and generally improve their health overnight. You became one of the nation's number one public health enemies in some circles at least in the minds of many nutritionists and a good chunk of the medical establishment. But you must have sort of expected that kind of pushback when you wrote the article because you were going against sort of the approved a narrative. Did you expect it or was it a surprise to you. I knew it was gonna be the most controversial article. The new york times magazine had run since he ran a piece by a friend of mine on the in utility of recycling. I didn't expect the fierceness of the response that was a little bit like being kicked in the head. On in retrospect i i completely understand that but When i originally the original article for the times magazine. I led with dr david. Ludwig who is young. Obesity pediatric endocrinologist at boston's children hospice associated with harvard. He was treating children with obesity with what he called carbohydrate modified diets and You know low carbohydrate diets rather than low fat diets. And i saw him as a politically correct sort of a way to get into this article where it wouldn't offend anyone and they would say a walk for her young idealistic. Harvard professor is doing the senate something we should take seriously and then down below in the article i discussed the influence of atkins dr robert atkins. Who became famous and wealthy for pushing. You know ketogenic diet and then after i handed in the editor said but we love it but put atkins in the lead and i remember i wrote a lead in which i said if the medical community had a waking up in times square naked kind of nightmare scenario would be that their dietary advice eat less fat was wrong and doing more harm than good and that dr robert atkins and his crazy ketogenic diet was may be right or maybe both and i read this to my wife and i said i love this and they'll never run a word of it. That's causing got a prayer and hell and then i sent it into the editors and they ran it exactly as i wrote it and then they put a porterhouse steak on the cover. This greasy est photo of a stake they could. They could get photographed with pat of butter on a nave and told me later. They picked the greasy swung. They could find to you..

"Down right oftentimes for some people right? They're saying hey, cortisol is jumping up and if you have high court, assaults can increase that reverse t three which is basically an inactive hormone, and so therefore you're going to get more rt three binding the t three receptors. You're not going to get the same t three activity at the cell, and so you can start to have more symptoms, thyroid dysfunction, and so you and I probably have seen that with other people. We've seen it on job tests right, and so, how do you start to address that? With Akito Jank where a low carb lifestyle kind kinda cycling CARBS. Your strategy is working with people with us. Crates let me go back and kind of just walk through the history of Kita, Genyk Diet and how it all started so I am the late eighteen hundreds William banting. He's the one that kind of you know pioneered a lower carbohydrate diet and remember back. In the late eighteen hundreds there were no GMO's everything was organic. Everything came from local farms. It wasn't this massive factory farming scales in all these different things all these pesticides, so the nutrient density was higher. Okay, then we had Dr Robert Atkins cardiologists in the seventies kind of. re-emerging in basically the Ketogenic Diet fell on a lot of things by accident, so by cutting carbohydrates, and really focusing on generating Kito, which are metabolites, fatty acids, Generating Alternative fuel source to glucose, stumbled on a couple of things by cutting out carbohydrates. They cut out a whole bunch of anti in a whole bunch of inflammatory foods by accident. Just because they were hiring carbohydrates, so they cut out grains. They cut out a lot of things that weren't so good A lot of added some things back in accidentally. I mean. If you look at what Atkins, you know promoted for a while spend aspartame. Soy Proteins, not so good, fatty acids. We know today with a Paleo Tampa approach. We really work on the nutrient density. Really work on the fat quality so kind of the Kena Genyk die, accidentally stumbled on some things that tend to drive inflammation tend to. To drive on immunity. Okay, so then today now we've updated that temple, and like you talk about you know some of your articles on refined sugar or artificial sweeteners. Those aren't good. That affects gut bacteria. We talked about earlier. How gut bacteria imbalance and that salt potatoes enzyme is so important for teeth forty-three activation, so we updated that approach some of the studies out there that show lower carbohydrate. Diets actually weakened thyroid hormone. If you go and you break down the composition of the fatty acids they use. You're going to see an excessive amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids that tends to be the driving factor in why some of these studies show. Ketogenic diets make thyroid worse is the excess amount of polyunsaturated, so of course we're emphasizing saturated fats your than than unsaturated fats, so we have our saturated fats coconut oil grasp at me key grasp at butter. All Your Animal Fats Tallow Right Bacon Bat. We have our monounsaturated fats which. which are still great? Avocados are phenomenal. olive oils great. Just don't Cook it, and then we have our polyunsaturated fats, which would be our fish oils, and then, of course you got the more Junkie High Omega. Six flower canot those kind of things, so if we really emphasize the right fatty acids on a hidden agenda Diet, we can really drive and promote healthy thyroid function, but there are times where it may not be enough and we we can go into that next I'll take a breath and give a chance to respond. I mean yeah, absolutely and so a Lotta. Times in and you brought up the topic to a saturated fat, so a lot of people think saturated fats bad, but actually saturated fats, most stable fat. We could put in our body right meaning that it's less prone to oxidation. We know that oxidative stress is a driving factor with inflammation damages, all of our tissues, and so when we put in these polyunsaturated fats like you were talking about quarter, oil sunflower oils, soybean oil, all these types of things the for doing high amounts of that are really even in small amounts, mirrors gonna just cause more oxidation, our body more rusting, whereas saturated fats are real stable so saturated fats less rusting, less oxidation very easy for our body. metabolize just really monounsaturated 's. They're less prone. Prone oxidation as well so those are really the fact that we WANNA be using. It's really why people say you should cook with coconut oil, and you and I we teach. Our patients could coconut oil cooked with grass, Fed, G, grass, fed butter. You know things like that because they're really really stable fats, and that's what we're looking for their stability. We don't want to introduce more things. Crate oxidative stress, nor system like these polyunsaturated fats do and that's really why when you're looking at those studies. For doing high amounts of polyunsaturated fats, we're GONNA. Cause more inflammation our body, even if insulin goes down because of the amount of oxidation that they're causing so as we as we transition. Hey, we want to look at. What factors if somebody's following Akito Janik, diet? We know that in general inflammation is going to go down right. Cause Insulin's going down. Blood sugars more stable, so if inflammation goes down, thyroid health should improve like we should get better. T. forty-three conversion. We should have a better brain. Thyroid communication powder was should get better. t three expression at the cell. What would be some reasons why somebody may not feel as good when they're doing that or at least early on it before they really understand the best strategies of the Ketogenic Diet. What are what are some of the? Reasons why somebody may may struggle with that if they have a thyroid problem Greg questions, let me dovetail on one thing when you talking about the The day of stress wanted just up. Til One thing. Everyone's listening thinking oxidation. What the Hell's oxidation oxidation nothing more than a loss in electrons. You're losing electrons. That's all it is now. What does that mean a real world? Cut An apple open. Leave it on the table. It gets Brown. It's losing electrons. Though the nail outside it gets rusty. It loses electrons okay. What does that do so in your body? Every cell has a lipid. And a half stabilized that lipid bi layer with various antioxidants. So when you do too much, polyunsaturated was cut. What happens is lipid per oxidation in your body has to use anti oxidants, anti loss of electron compounds like vitamin C. and various other nutrients. Curcumin is also there, and that stabilizes that cell membrane so a lot of people they are. They're polling in. They're losing their antioxidant reserves, and these antioxidants are also really important for. For thyroid and adrenal health so imagine you have poor diet. You're not getting a lot of these nutrients in your eating fats that cause your reserves of these nutrients to go lower so now. You've got this major debt because you're. You're paying people on both sides of the fence, and you don't have enough income of nutrients coming in to pay that metabolic debt. Some makes sense. Yep, absolutely makes a lot of sense. That's great example. I just wanted to interrupt this podcast and tell you about these kito cookies that taste incredible I mean. It took this company over a year to formulate this product to ensure that it did not cause your blood sugar to spike your key tones to drop your insulin spike and promote inflammation in the body, which most products most sweet treats. Even low carb treats actually do I've tried so many blow car cookies, and they threw me out of Kito sees, and so these Kito cookies ask are actually formulated with ingredients that are not to impact your blood sugar. In the same way you got things like grass fed, butter, almond, flour, coconut, flour, coconut oil. Egg. it's got a Sushi Gum, which is actually a great biotic.

"Eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two and to start the day yesterday to kick it all off. We had Dr Frank Lippmann, who is a New York Times bestselling author, an integrative physician functional medicine expert. And really, I mean it was almost like a standing ovation. I mean people were responding so well to his discussions about how to stay healthy in today's life, and it was so great that I thought I would bring him on, again here this morning. In case you missed the seminar, because it was sold out. And we'll, we'll definitely going to have again you probably need a bigger venue. That's possible. But it will really was nice that we had it in our research and academic center in downtown many. Oh, good morning. Thanks so much for getting up this morning and being with me on the show this morning. Good morning. Thanks for having me. You were terrific really? I mean, people were, you know, they cut coming up to me afterwards. And you know after you gave the. Talk. I mean, the questions kept coming. I mean we could have been there all day. I think right. Right. A lot of interest. Now in in, you know how to stay healthy all of us as we get older. We want to stay healthy, and as I said yesterday, it's more about e in proving increasing health span, rather than our Las Ben. How do we stay healthy for as long as possible without disease and disability? And I think that's where people are at. And, and I think we can help them. Yeah. You definitely did in one of the things I was out with a friend last night. We were talking about the, you know, the, the diets that people are taking an as you pointed out, so many of them are so bad for you. But the one that you were really focusing on with the intermittent fasting, which really has caught my interest about how people should eat less and fast for a number of hours, even even not even have any breakfast. And which is against something that I always grew up with. I mean, I was told well, you know, you eat breakfast like a king, and, you know, dinner like a pop. But you were saying that you shouldn't even have anything to eat to probably around one o'clock. Maybe you could tell us more about that. Well, I think the idea of, you know. Call it Tom restricted eating Rawda, okay as you'll food in a period. I think is very helpful because I think our buddy responds, positively to, to fostering or not having calories for a for a period. And it you know, I think it's a good idea to do it for probably at least twelve hours. But if you can extend it for in fourteen sixty hours, even better is there's a concept called homies, which means a little bit of stress on the buddy. Ed, Chile is positive exercise is a little bit of stress and it has positive effects, and it's the same thing with not having any calories, you know, not any food in. It's this little bit of stress on the buddy, which stimulates real positive reaction. This is something we know about cooled or tough Aji, which is the buddies clearing mix of the cells itchy clean themselves out. And if you. Strict categories. Are you strict food for a period of time? And it starts off to about fourteen hours in your spiel buddy starts tearing out the debris. You're the cells start clearing the debris, and, you know, we know that basically aging is the lack of the -bility to, to clear out damaged cells. You know, why do we age that ability to, to clear out the Demi cells starts decreasing, so fostering or not eating for shorter period for longer? Periods can be helpful for that sets. It's a really good enti aging tool, but it was actually helps people lose weight. Can you know there's more and more studies coming out hot can actually help you know, reverse or definitely manage type two diabetes. So it has a really positive effect on the buddy says, not only what you eat. But it's when you eat, and you said something earlier about eating breakfast, like a king, you can still eat breakfast like a king, but breakfast doesn't have to be at seven o'clock. It can be eleven o'clock twelve o'clock. Well, I'm going to try I you know, and I also already started doing something differently last night after I worked out in the gym. I took a shower. And yet told me you had mentioned yesterday that you need to shock the body a little bit. It's good for the immune system to sue instead of taking that warm, cozy shower, you know, run the cold water, so. I tried it, and it's not easy col- really cold shower, but I came out, and I felt I felt invigorated I felt with more energy. Yeah. A little she has a positive effect on the body and the other guys in the locker room who's that guy screaming in the shower. It wasn't easy. But I you know, and obviously you practice what you preach because I mean you disclosed your age, which I won't do here on the radio, but, but you, you look, you're very fit, and you look very young, which is also you know, encouraging because, you know, sometimes you see physicians and, you know, they're overweight, and, you know, how, you know, as a physician you, you need to take care of yourself. And that's one of the things I think you pointed out that you also need to, if you're a healer, you, you need to be in good shape, so that you can give a health benefits and take care of others. I see it as you know, survival on to do this can stay on top of my game as we get older. It just becomes harder to, to stay healthy to be fit to be vital. So it just takes more work. Unfortunately, that's the reality of aging Yukon, stop the aging process. But, but how you age can be changed or can be you can adapt. And it's interesting what you were saying, I mean you weren't really focusing some of the other speakers that we've had in the past, and they get into nutrition. They're always focused on plant based diet more vegetables, more fruits, and it's all plant based, but it didn't seem like that was your, your emphasis it was, it was more about the, the fasting and eating of course. You know organic things you you brought up that quite a bit. If you're going to have meat, you said, you even yourself you said, yes, I'll have chicken meat. But it'll be grass-fed. It'll be organic chicken and things that you buy are trying. You do your best that you can, you know, incorporate things into your body that you feel have probably the best. Nutritionist nutritional value, but doesn't always have to be just all plant based is is that is that correct? No one right way to eat some, you know, some people who on a genyk, which is very high. I'm not convinced that I'm not against. Most of my dot is plunked based, but I think. I eat some meat, but we're not eat meat. It's gonna be. Chicken, it's going to be organic chicken and try it eat fish low in mercury. Knowing your sources is, is probably more important and working out what's right for you. If I look at for me personally because I became pre diabetic itching, a lot of fruits, grains. I'd do better on a very low carb diet, and it's harder to be on a low, carb dot eating just plants and I've seen a number it probably hundreds of patients who try just plants and, you know, they should go up because aiding too many grains, and too much fruits, so I don't think that's uncommon. I'm not saying a healthy plant based on healthy too. But I think you need to see what works for you. And, yes, the majority of your food should be plunged, but doesn't have to be plot. Based. Yeah. And then you got into a wonderful discussion about the micro bio, and, you know, the intestinal bacteria and how would destroying the the good bacteria in our body with so many of the antibiotics that we take and how important the the natural bacteria is within our gut. Maybe you can talk a little bit about that for listeners. Right. Understanding we have now the microbiome Mannheim potent is crucial to a health because. Feeding yourself. Eating your gut bacteria. And as I said yesterday, we have more gut bacteria in our gut than we have cells in our body. And there's a whole organ system in got this macro buying this collection of bacteria, which mostly good for us in a playing important functions in the body from how we break down food to supporting. I mean system and these, these bugs in our gut take the five minute breakdown, and, and that feeds them and they have breakdown products these break, you know what these breakdown products often determine our health. I mean, it's a major source of inflammation, it's just be, you know of just saw an article last week that now the anomaly, farm L Joey, you start getting paid and all of your body in many in the in the muscles in the joints, and you get not that found it people. With Farber Mallika have different gut bacteria. They've. Seen. I've seen studies with Parkinson's and the microbiome sir, you, you the health of your Macher by them is key to your health in in my practice. That's what I work with initially trying to correct the microbiome because I'm seeing more and more young people in particular, women who come in with a micro bond that's out of balance, usually because they took too many antibiotics as kids or the dots were terrible, but often, because it took too many antibiotics, as kids with us for a current during tract infections for ethnic for recurrent, sinus infections, you know, we stopped his with too liberal about giving antibiotics and it's caused havoc on out gut because the bugs and not got, you know, antibiotics just kill whatever bugs are sensitive to not make kill the bugs. You wanna to kill him the sinuses or the track kidding? A lot of these good bacteria in our gut. So. We end up with this imbalance in our gut and that. Creates all sorts of problems, seven fifteen in the morning here on campus corner, WABC radio and we're talking with wonderful. Dr Frank Lippmann, who is our guest yesterday at the men's health seminar, and really learned so much from you and some of the other aspects of your talk, and I really love the way that you started your talk about you're growing up in South Africa, and you were exposed to integrative medicine there, and I feel the same way, you know, my career is, is somewhat similar to yours in the fact that I was trained as a traditional physician went to urology, residency everything was allopathic eastern medicine and then had the western medicine and then had the opportunity to work with the late Dr Robert Atkins in early on in my career really kind of just it was enlightening in the sense that I could see patients on one day, treating them with herbs and died. And the other day. If I was up at, you know, Columbia University where I was at the time, you know, treating patients with. With surgery informed, Ceuta calls and, and it really opened my eyes and, and became a more of an integrative type of position purely holistic as you mentioned yesterday. I mean if you have an appendicitis you're not just going to give someone herbs or if they have a broken rib, or broken leg, you're not going to say well just take acupuncture for that. But you do need to be mindful to be open to these things because, as you pointed out, and gave some terrific examples with even with the role of acupuncture, and mindfulness, and.
Sucralose decreases insulin sensitivity in healthy subjects: a randomized controlled trial
"We're on a roll here talking about diabetes. And here's an interesting study back in the day, Dr Atkins. We have to knowledge was a true pioneer in treating diabetes with a low carb diet. He was a student of Banting Banting was a British guy who cured his diabetes and obesity with a very low carb diet that happened in the nineteenth century, and since then they've been studying low carb diets for modifying, overweight, insulin resistance and diabetes. But one of the bones that had to pick. With the late great, Dr Robert Atkins who might who knew personally quite well was that he was permissive of the use of splendor. 'cause he wanted to give his patients to break something. Sweet. Okay. It's synthetic. He wasn't a fan of NutraSweet. It wasn't a fan of saccharin. But the then relatively new sweetener splendor appeared innocuous and didn't seem to create a lot of problems and gave patients a little bit of mouth field of something that was gratifying. A synthetic sugar that could be zero calorie. But here's a concern just raised about sucralose, which is splendid in American journal clinical nutrition. This randomized controlled trial involved healthy subjects, and what they found was that individuals who got a lotta sucralose in this experiment. Showed a significant decrease in insulin sensitivity. So that's called insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is. When the insulin that you make. Is ineffective. It just doesn't work at the cellular level and high levels of insulin tend to suck the fat on prevent weight loss. Encourage weight gain at our pathway to type two diabetes. So the conclusion of the study sucralose may have effects on glucose metabolism and our study compliments findings previously reported and other trials. So there you have it. There is no free ride when it comes to sweeteners at the very least sweeteners will perk. The appetite. For sweet foods, and they may be even the thirty zero calorie. They may be gateway drugs back to sugar, and in the case of sucralose that's early case of NutraSweet NutraSweet seems to disrupt the microbiome in such a way that has metabolic effects and may encourage development of obesity and diabetes. So. Sure. Had he been aware of this. If he were alive today, the Dr Atkins would. Apply correction and renounce splendor as part of his dietary program for treatment of
