1. Fasting: Minimum Hours? [2:08]
Really appreciate all the work you are doing. You are a huge inspiration to me and hopefully one day, I'll be able to make as big a difference as you have in people's lives.
Just a quick question, what's the minimum number of hours someone should fast if they just want to maintain good health? I typically fast about 12 hours and I have heard you mention that its a good fasting duration in one of your podcasts. Is this enough if I just want good metabolic health?
2. Alcohol While Paleo? [4:30]
I’ve noticed that some nutrition experts detour from their mission of nutritional health seemingly to promote the ingestion of certain alcoholic beverages. In your opinion, why is this done since according to the WHO alcohol is a known carcinogen sometimes leading to esophageal, stomach, breast cancer, etc. Apparently there is “no safe amount” to avoid its’ effects so why is it promoted?
3. Former Smokers: Can Paleo Reverse Damage? [10:02]
Thank you for your wonderful contributions to our collective (and personal) health. Your teachings left a lasting, highly beneficial imprint on by health and on by wellbeing. A part of that was quitting smoking. As a former smoker, what can I do now to minimize the risks of cancer? Since there are millions of former smokers in the U.S. alone, your answers will certainly appeal to a large audience. Thank you so much. All the best
4. Gymnastics Training For Jiu Jitsu? [13:17]
I'm excited that my gym finally got gymnastics rings.
Do you have any free resources for beginners you would recommend? My primary sport is jiu jitsu.
Straight arm strength in particular is tough to come by. Trying to find progressions for those.
Also, I’m curious as to what you like to do for neck and wrist conditioning. Mine are always creaky from grappling.
5. Oil Roasted Almonds [16:36]
First I wanted to say thank you for all the valuable info you provide. You are one of the few voices I fully trust because you always follow the evidence and are willing to change your mindset if the evidence leads you somewhere new.
With that, I have heard you say on the podcast that you eat a lot of blue diamond smokehouse almonds (I love those) and it got me wondering. I have tended to avoid them in favor of the blue diamond almonds that are roasted without any added oil, because the smokehouse say that they may be roasted in canola or other vegetable oil. I was curious your thoughts on this. I tend to totally avoid vegetable/canola oil whenever possible, but I assume the amount of oil you are actually ingesting with these almonds would be low. What are your thoughts? If everything is dialed in and you’re feeling good, do you not worry about the minimal amount you’d be getting from this? Or have you seen evidence that it takes more than this little bit of oil that the almonds would be roasted with to really create a problem?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
