This episode is all about how you can go about choosing a diet that's right for you. We're all different and what's right for me may not be right for you. Topics include:

  • Why there's no one diet that's best for everybody.

  • 6 major questions to ask yourself before choosing any diet protocol or modality

  • I talk about adaptation periods and compliance as it pertains to different diets. 

  • Then we hop right into the various diets that you'll likely run across these days.The list I go over today includes: keto, primal, paleo, intermittent fasting, OMAD, carnivore, GAPS, vegetarian, vegan, high carb-low fat, the standard American diet, and cleanses.

  • I go over each of these and give you a general overview, the pros and cons, and my overall opinion of the diet. Please note that different diets are used for different things and I view this from a weight loss and health and well-being perspective. So if I say a diet is not efficacious for weight loss, that doesn't mean it's a bad diet.

  • I then talk about what to do if you cheat, slip-up, or make a mistake in your diet. 

  • I throw some serious shade at the Standard American Diet, because it deserves it. 

  • Then I talk about some concepts to consider when choosing a diet. Things like insulin management, insulin sensitivity, leptin and grehlin sensitivity, glucagon, HGH, and testosterone and how these hormones tend to be optimized in low carbohydrate diets. 

  • Then I give you a final diet. It's a no frills approach for those of us that have low discipline, low willpower, who don't want to plan, or track calories, who missed the deadline to start a summer bod diet. There's only 3 rules and you will lose fat. 

  • Then in this week's Call-to-Action we put this knowledge to work. We answer those 6 questions we talked about at the beginning of the episode and we figure out what diet is best for us.
