Protecting Your NEST with Dr. Tony Hampton

Jul 24, 2020

Welcome to Protecting Your Nest. Dr. Ken Berry, author of Lies My Doctor Told Me, is a practicing physician in a rural town in Tennessee. For over a decade, he’s been fighting the epidemics of Obesity, Insulin Resistance, and Type 2 Diabetes one patient at a time. See the links below for more information on his book or to see Dr. Berry’s website and social media accounts.

The discussion opens with the question, “what constitutes the real human diet?” Is there a proper human diet? That is, is there a general nutritional spectrum that humans must eat within in order to stay in optimal health? In discussing this topic, the related findings of paleo-anthropology are brought to bear.

Next, the discussion turns to the origin of the food pyramid and the USDA dietary guidelines. What forces were involved in shaping these highly influential governmental recommendations? Who decided that eating saturated fat is unhealthy? These questions are talked about in depth.

Other topics discussed in this episode include carbohydrate withdrawal, food addiction, the keto flu, salt, hyperinsulinemia, and fiber.
