For Episode 416 of The Paleo Solution Podcast we have guest Dr. Michael Rose. Dr. Rose is a prolific evolutionary biologist whose work on aging has transformed the field. Evolution has described the field of aging research as “after Rose,” thanks to his influential book Evolutionary Biology of Aging. In 1997, Rose was awarded the Busse Research Prize by the World Congress of Gerontology. In 2004, he published a technical summary of his work on the postponement of aging, Methuselah Flies, followed in 2005 by a popular book on the topic, The Long Tomorrow. His most recent book, with L.D. Mueller and C.L. Rauser, is Does Aging Stop? He has more than 300 publications, and has given hundreds of scientific talks around the world. He is currently a Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine.
This was a super interesting episode. We talked about evolutionary changes in diet, how young people may be more adapted to agricultural diets, how that changes with age, and how your background and ancestry can affect how you handle agricultural diets and foods as well. I definitely recommend giving this one a listen.

Here we are with Q&A #12 with Robb and Nicki for Episode 413 of The Paleo Solution Podcast!
Don't forget to send in your own podcast question to use here: https://robbwolf.com/contact/submit-a-question-for-the-podcast/
1. [1:36] Keto for children
Hey Robb! I’ve read a few studies and heard people talking about Keto diets helping children with epilepsy and behavioral disorders. But I’m wondering if it’s healthy for all children? I want to raise my child healthy and I don’t feel comfortable feeding him processed foods, sugar, and grains like baby cereals and junk foods. How do I know if I’m feeding him the right amount of fats, protein and carbs?
I love your podcast and would love to hear your thoughts on this!
2. [9:27] Am I 'carb adapted'
I have recently finished reading Wired to Eat and shortly after began testing many of the foods on the list. The majority (outside of oatmeal at 123 mg) have come back surprisingly low at <100 mg. I have even went as far to test sour dough bread and cinnamon toast crunch just to see the effect which also came in <100. About 6 months ago I sent some blood off to test what 'my ideal macros' should be and it came back 40/40/20 c/p/f which I automatically thought was a farce given this sort or split is classic 'bodybuilder' macro split amd seemed gimmicky. However post testing my own blood myself, I am starting to think maybe it was accurate. I am 35 and have always been a bit carbaphobic - so my question to you is 1) is it possible, or have you seen this sort of reaction with others who are able to eat carbs without a spike in blood sugar? 2) what does this tell us (good, bad, indifferent) and 3) I would really like to experiment with a keto reset for 2-3 months/year given I feel there are great longevity aspects - however if my body handles carbs well - would you suggest a high fat/keto protocol for benefits?
Thanks for all that you out out there.
3. [14:17] nicotine affect on ketosis levels
So i've been on the "keto" diet for almost 3 months now, my carb intake is between 15 and 20 grams of carbs per day with around 1500-1700 calories overall and im consuming around 130-150g of protein a day. My daily blood ketone level is between a .4 and .7
I CHEW almost religiously, could there be an affect on my blood ketone level with the nicotine from my chewing, or even enough to keep me at such a low level of ketosis?
4. [17:00] Lifting vs Jiu-Jitsu
After many years of "Bro-Splits" and curls I finally got into heavy compound lifting about a year ago and have run 5x5 type beginner programs and recently more intermediate templates as well. I really enjoy lifting and currently hit the squats, deads and Bench 3X a week (cardio 1 or 2 days in between)
I really want to start Jiu Jitsu though. I've been interested in it for the longest time, and I finally need to just get my ass on the mat and do it. Is once a week "enough" for Jiu Jitsu? I have a feeling I'll get into it and want to do more, but I also don't really want to slow down on the lifting and there's only so many hrs in the day (Running a family business during the day and trying to get a little health coaching biz going at night! www.supersimian.co.za for people in South Africa Yes! One of your 6 fans is in South Africa :D ).
What would you recommend for someone wanting to get started?
5. [21:26] Low Appetite on Paleo
Jai (female) says:
Hi Robb & Nicki!
I have a question regarding having a naturally low appetite. Growing up, I remember having a pretty inconsistent appetite compared to my peers and family. I was a competitive athlete up through sophmore year of college and I felt like that really drove my appetite. For most of my life, I had a low (but normal) BMI, which slowly crept to an overweight BMI in the last few years. I developed some poor eating habits in my 20's and struggled with depression which led to a 30 lb weight gain. I've dabbled in Paleo for a long time, but about 2 months ago I really dove in after reading Wired to Eat and experiencing some scary health symptoms (fatigue, orthostasis, parathesias in my legs and fingers, blurry vision). Since eliminating grains, dairy and soy, I have noticed that I am rarely hungry. I counted calories/macros for a few days to see where I am at and I hover around 1600 calories (food detailed below if you need it). I am 5'5", 150 (after a 15lb weight loss!) and moderately sedentary. I'm a nursing student, so I move around a lot at clincals, but spend much of the day sitting to study. I rock climb 2-3 days a week, and walk 2-3 days also. I plan to add 1-2 days of lifting as well. My concern is that I may be undernourishing myself. Is this something I should worry about? Is it possible for some people to just need fewer calories? Is this something I shouldn't worry about until I get to a lower weight? I don't feel like I am underreating. I have a lot of energy. My skin looks great. I've put on more muscle. Depression has disappeared and anxiety is back to a manageable level. IBS is much improved also. I have sphincter of oddi dysfunction too, which gets a little frisky when I have too much fat, but it's drastically improved since cutting out dairy.
Thank you so much for the work that you do! I have had amazing results and the workbook for Wired to Eat really kept me motivated. I've already roped 3 friends into reading the book and trying the lifestyle mods. One of the biggest changes I have made is socializing more, and I don't know that I would have ever done that without your book. I'm much happier and healthier. Thank you!
Breakfast: usually 2 eggs, handful of berries, and some sliced carrots, if I am hungry enough (skip breakfast 2-3 days per week bc I am not hungry until later in the day)
(sometimes) Snack: epic bar and baby food pouch (pureed fruit & veggies)
Lunch: Chicken or fish with another handful of berries or maybe some melon. & a veggie, like asparagus or greens
Dinner: some type of red meat and 1/4-1/2 sweet potato.
Primarily focus on getting protein in because it's easiest for me to digest.
6. [28:20] Mechanism behind foods that lower blood glucose
The Great Dane says:
Hey Robb and Nicki,
People talk and write about foods (or supplements) that help lower blood glucose. As i understand it, some of it has to do with the activation of glut-4 transporters (e.g. When taking Alpha lipoic acid). This should make your muskels more insuline sensitive and thereby lower blood glucose (might not be exactly what happens). But what about stuff like cinnamon, vinegar and lemon juice? Is it the same mechanisms or is it sinply because they tell the pancreas to produce insuline. After hearing Peter Attia on The Tim Ferriss show several years ago, one of my goals have been to keep insulin low. I want to use as many hacks as i can to keep blood glucose low, but i don't want it to be low because of insuline secretion. Is there anything to this? Or am i good to go with the hacks?

What is your take on a recent Men's Health article promoting the Nordic diet, and it's focus on rapeseed (canola) oil? The article touts the benefits of this oil, but it has been on my naughty list!
In other news, one of my treats always has to be potato chips, and I often look for variations. One such is the brand Boulder Canyon, which uses avocado oil in the frying process. Do these chips offer me any solace, or does the high heat from the deep frying end up spoiling all the goodness that avocado oil has to offer?

5. [26:07] Keto and lifting
6. [28:12] Overtraining question
I’m a marathon runner , and just enjoy working out for personal health . I work a full time job as a machinist . For 12 hours 4 days a week I’m constantly on my feet, constantly lifting heavy metal parts 75+ pounds . Im worried that if I’m doing all of this heavy lifting and moving everyday that I may not be benefiting from any workouts because of the lack of rest my body gets due to work. I’ve recently adopted the paleo diet hoping that eating right will help. But I still worry it may not be good enough . I dropped my workouts down to only 2 days a week. Focusing primarily on core workouts and the big 3. Dead lifts, bench press, and squats. Then I also run 3 times a week.
I hope to hear back , love your podcasts. It’s all I listen to while I’m at work !

And don't forget to submit your own questions for the podcast here: https://robbwolf.com/contact/submit-a-question-for-the-podcast/
1. [3:41] Fasting and silent reflux
After about 8 months of keto, i discovered i have silent reflux. I was baffled, as i have never had any problems like this before. I tried everything, the supplements, raising the bed, eliminating foods, and nothing helped. Then, we went on an 8 day cruise, and my reflux wa gone! It dawned on me that i was eating three meals a day, instead of my usual two within a six hour window. I have continued to eat three meals a day, since returning home, and still no reflux! My problem is that my fasting blood sugar is higher than it was while i was fasting. It's not terrible, but i am noticing a bit worse vision while it is higher. I am normally in the 70s or 80s, and now am regularly in the 90s.
What is your thought on a possible correlation between fasting and silent reflux? I am a healthy weight, don't drink, don't smoke, and don't even drink coffee. I started fasting about a year ago, so that wasn't anything new. I likely had reflux for awhile before i realized it. Another side note, like Robb, i was also on a form of tetracyclene for many years as a teenager. Is SIBO something i should consider as a cause of the reflux after that much antibiotic use?
Sorry this is so long, i just felt some of the details were necessary! I really appreciate everything you do, and i can honestly say you have tremendously impacted our entire family's health!
2. [9:52] Keto protocol for lower belly fat / excess skin?
I'm loving the return of the Q&A -- and especially the addition of Nicki (now I can get my girlfriend to listen without her feeling like I'm jamming my male-centric "unorthodox" health podcast down her throat -- no offense Robb, but now she can relate).
I've been Keto for a while, loved the tips from the MasterClass and recently finished the Ketogains bootcamp, with Luis -- both lead to a big transformation, 22 percent body fat down to 13 percent and still going. Only lost about 4 lbs, but put on a bunch of lean muscle.
Here's my question -- most of my fat is held in my lower belly flab. I've never been this lean, but I've also never been super fat. Nor did I lose a bunch of weight really fast -- point being, I'm not sure if I'm dealing with excess fat or skin, but I don't care cause it's flabby.
Plainly put, how can I get rid of this?
I swear at one point, I heard you (Robb) talking about a ketogenic diet with limited protein and prolonged fasting for obese people that have lost a lot of weight and have excess skin -- even in place of skin surgery...
I am curious could this approach possibly be a good protocol for getting rid of last amounts of skin/flab/fat once one has achieved a desired body comp -- for example if I get to single digit body fat and still have the flab, could I bump up my fat macros and reduce protein?
If so, what might those macros and the protocol look like?
Basically, I want to look like the shredded, and tight, animal that is always timidly posting shirtless selfies to the dasrobbwolf instagram account... You know, the "Writer" that killed an Elk with a stick on I, Caveman... I'll have what he's having...
Anyways, love what you all do. You've been the pioneers of a revolution and helped a lot of people.
Keep up the great work.

5. [26:25] Avoiding sunburn during excessive sun exposure at work
GOALS: Avoid skin damage, gain as much benefit from outdoor working as possible.
Hi Robb and Nikki,
Really enjoying the q&a format, here's my input..
I travel a lot for work, in the coming months I'll be travelling to some fairly hot, sunny countries: Mexico, Chile, Pakistan.
My work involves me being outdoors at sports stadiums for full days on end with very little shelter and due to my Northern European genetics I don't do well with intense sun exposure in the short term. However having previously lived in Australia for a year I adapted well, being able to moderate my exposure, and within a few months was able to spend hours outside without burning.
I would like to avoid using sunscreen where possible and enjoy the full benefits of the sun on my skin during my working days, as such how can I pre-condition my body to tolerate these intense bursts of sun exposure when I live in a predominantly cloudy, cold country? I'm thinking vitamin d supplementation, possible intelligent use of UV tanning beds? Any dietary tweaks worth considering?
Thanks in advance, kind regards
James - hope there's no flies in here!

It's time for Q&A #5 with Robb and Nicki for Episode 397 of the podcast.
1. [3:30] Are vegetables out to kill us?
I love the new format of the podcast, and really enjoy the episodes that leave the health sphere just a little. The episode about self-defense was a great listen!
This question is really aimed to help you get rid of your pesky listeners - especially those that you've convinced to eat a meat and veggie diet. After the zero-carb episode with Dr. Shawn Baker, I decided to give carnivorousness shot. Some greasy used car salesman keeps telling me to try it and see how I look, feel and perform, so I figured might as well.
To my surprise, I didn't develop horrendous constipation, gastrointestinal distress, or even scurvy. In fact, I felt pretty damn good.
After a couple of weeks I started looking at re-introducing some higher fat foods into my diet, like avocado. In seeing who else has been down this road, I found that others stay with a carnivore diet avoid avocados, coconut, and other fatty fruits and veggies because of the high salicylate count.
Holy smokes, now I've got another thing to worry about! I have no history, signs or symptoms or salicylate intolerance, so I'm wondering if salicylate intolerance is limited to only those who exhibit intolerance to salicylate, or can modern day marvels make others intolerant to salicylate as well? Yes, I'm trying to kid, but honestly I never knew how much gluten was dragging me down until I avoided it.
At the end of the episode with Dr. Shawn Baker, he talks about how eating fruits is likely better than eating vegetables. Ignoring the fact that avocado is a fruit, is this the strategy you would take?
I know I can introduce it and see how I feel. That strategy falls apart a little when the placebo effect is strong - getting objective measurements is pretty challenging at this point. And researching this feels like I'm hitting some dogmatic areas of the internet.
What are your thoughts?
Side note: I signed up for the Keto Masterclass a while ago. I've been struggling with Keto for a couple of years - I seem to respond well to the ~70-100g carb range, getting down to 30g never worked. Well, going carnivore really helped with this! The meals I was eating lined up perfectly with the ketogains macro calculator. Not sure how many would buy into it, but this could be another tool in the keto toolkit.
2. [9:14] Storage kit in case of emergency
Some (or many??) years ago there was an article/blogpost (or maybe a podcast) on the website about which (paleo/keto) foods, drinks and other stuff you need to have in storage in case of an emergency. I can't find it anymore. Do you have this somewhere? (or maybe some idea for a podcast?? :-) )
Looking forward to hear from you.

4. [18:19] Maintaining a healthy gut after antibiotics
Also, I know this is long so feel free to shorten it however you need.
Thanks for everything you do and know that you are making a huge impact on peoples lives out here in the real world. Peace.
5. [23:24] Pork, Shellfish and Organ meats
Huge fan of your work and appreciate the science behind the 'what' when it comes to eating and training to optimize health. My question is this: what food choices, workout tweaks or other possible naturopathic supplements might I look into as I navigate the epic joy that is menopause?
Brief history for you: I stair-stepped into Paleo beginning about five years ago now (at around age 45), though I've been dairy free since my 30s. Since dipping into Keto about a year and a half ago and experimenting with macros, I think I've found my nutrition "sweet spot": around 50 grams of carbs (berries, chocolate, sweet potato), 90ish grams of protein (animal mostly, some plant proteins) and the rest from fats (coconut oils, animal fats, avocado, etc)...I'm 52, 5' 5 1/2" tall, 131 pounds and 17% body fat (per my last InBody reading)...I weight train 3-4 times a week (at least two of those super heavy), walk and garden a few days a week, run or do stair sprints every 7-10 days. Since I switched from a super low-fat, high carb, grain based diet, my HDL has risen, my triglycerides plummeted (from over 125 to 43!), my total cholesterol is improved and my fasted blood sugar is in the upper 70s, low 80s. My weight dropped from 150 and has been the same within a pound of two for five years running now...
And then: menopause. My sleeping has gone to hell with night sweats and I've had all sorts of weird food reactions since going off birth control for good four months ago. Doctor's suggestion of going off, then back on the pill a year ago seemed to do a number on my gut and I became a mess. So I went back off the pill four months ago and did my own AIP protocol and think I found the culprits (almonds and nightshades). My gut issues are much improved and I'm trying some Black Cohosh and using Clary Sage for the hot flashes with mixed results.
So, my question: I want to be back to feeling 110% all of the time (not a big ask, I don't think), but this menopause nonsense is getting on my last nerve. Anything I can do that doesn't include artificial HRT? My insurance doesn't cover functional medicine, naturopathy or acupuncture, but I am hoping to change insurance.
Thanks for any help or insight!

1. (4:07) What do you eat?
2. (11:02) Keto counting
I’ve been following your stuff for ages. I’ve got both of your books. I worked out with a personal trainer who turned me on to Paleo and you nearly 10 years ago. I lost 145 pounds and have mostly kept it off. Every now and then I get into the almond flour baked goods and fruit and put on a few pounds. Then I regain my sanity and desire to feel great and I make better choices and drop the weight.
I’ve been considering Keto for a while just to see if I can drop a little more of the weight and feel even better. But here’s my hesitation, and it’s going to sound like an excuse, because it is. BUT I spent a whole lot of my life counting calories, counting fat grams, counting carbs....counting, counting, counting and being hungry. And I think the reason Paleo has worked so well for me is that I eat healthy, delicious food. When I am in the zone and not eating treats (which I always make myself) and I eat slowly and mindfully, I do really well. I have tons of energy and, although I could lose more weight for sure, I’m ok where I am weight-wise. I worry that Keto will put me back in that headspace of counting and worrying and making myself crazy over choices.
If anybody is going to help me over that, it’s you, though! So maybe I should just take the plunge into your Masterclass?
3. (17:18) What is considered health on the low end of the glucose spectrum when in ketosis?
4. (21:41) electrolytes
5. (24:51) BODYBUILDING FOR TEENS
6. (28:38) does my genetics mean I can't buy a smoker???

We're back with another Q&A episode (yes, we're going to be doing these regularly)!
If you have a question for a future episode, submit them here https://robbwolf.com/contact/submit-a-question-for-the-podcast/
1. (3:00) Low Carb and Low Testosterone
Any ideas as to why when I switched to low carb, my SHBG shot up, and, of course, my Free Testosterone went down...not good! I heard a podcast between Asprey and D'Agostino a while back and Dave mentioned that he was seeing that in a small percentage of clients, but did not know why? Hence...any thoughts you can provide would be helpful.
Stay the course...!!!
2. (5:30) Can visceral fat go away without procedures?
My question is it possible for that visceral belly fat to go away or get smaller through my current course of action? Or is that only possible through outside tools and resources like cool sculpting? I realize that sounds pretty vain, but again, it's a big change for my body and I am not loving it at all.
3. (14:01) Keto diet and raised triglycerides
Huge fan of everything you do! I know you are super busy, but when you get a chance could you expand on keto and triglycerides? I am a 24-year-old male, 5'10 180 and about 15% body fat, very committed to weightlifting, yoga, nutrition, and fitness in general. I just got back a blood test and I had a raised triglycerides levels, about 220. I was wondering if I can do anything to lower this or if this is even bad. Anything will help, and I will be looking forward to your response.
Excited about your upcoming content and everything you do!
4. (17:51) Fasting
5. (23:11) Women and Keto
There’s lots of flys in here Tony reference:
6. (27:53) Fasting (answered with next question together in one)
What is allowed during a period of fasting? Clear broth, coffee, lemon water, and tea, just water, or some combination?
7. (27:53) Intermittent fasting and coffee with coconut oil/milk (answered along with previous question)
Does it take me out of fasting mode and, if so, how quickly will I go back into fasting mode assuming I don't eat anything? Blood ketone tests show that my ketones increase by quite a lot after drinking coffee this way but is it having a negative impact on weight loss because my body is burning the fat in the coconut oil/milk rather than in my body?
There are many conflicting reports and opinions (most mainly about BPC) and I can't find a definitive answer.
I found this site today which is the first one I've seen explained this way.
What's your take on it?
My main goal is improved health (as measured by improved sleep and improved cognition) which I'm hoping will translate into weight loss of around another 12kg's (lost 5kg's through keto since mid January '18).

You asked for it, and we delivered. We're back with a Q&A episode!
If you have a question for a future episode, submit them here https://robbwolf.com/contact/submit-a-question-for-the-podcast/
1. (4:41) Ketosis and Carbohydrate timing
Hi Robb. I don't know if this will reach you, but while listening to your podcast and reading your first book, a hundred questions pop into my head. This is one of them. I thought about asking my doctor, but I knew a blank stare and a sweaty forehead would be his answer. So here goes: Does frequency of carb intake play a role in disrupting ketosis? For example, if I am going to eat 150 grams in total of carbohydrates today, will eating all 150 grams of carbs at the same meal knock me out of ketosis for an EQUAL amount of time as eating 15 grams every hour for 10 hours?* My theory is eating 15 grams of carbs an hour for 10 hours will be just enough to keep a person out of ketosis for a longer period of time than eating all 150 grams in one meal while carb-fasting for the rest of the day. I could be wrong, but that's why I'm asking the master. Thank you in advance for any time you can dedicate to the this question. Have a great day.
*Lets assume we are talking about starchy carbohydrates (rice, potatoes, etc.), not leafy green vegetables or other low glycemic vegetables.
Links: Meal frequency and timing in health and disease-PNAS
2. (9:34) Genetics and Keto
Robb mentioned in the Paleo(f)x keto interview that he had some genetics (SNPs) that perhaps made Keto not a great diet for him, yet he gets around it somewhat with some supplementation including with Carnitine. I dabble in Keto and have made lots of progress with my health as a result. I plan to sign up for the Master Class too. I have done genetic testing already with 23 and me. I wonder if Robb could tell me the SNPs to look for to see what kind of genetic fit Keto is for me. I have a feeling I will find out in the Master Class, but would love to hear what Robb has to say or perhaps there is a link to an article or podcast that would do the trick.
Found my fitness genetic interpretation:
FTO gene is called fat mass and obesity-associated protein because it is the gene that is the major genetic risk factor for obesity. This particular genotype, rs17817449(G;T), is associated with a 1.3-fold increased obesity risk. Saturated fat may have a negative effect on blood glucose and insulin levels and increases type 2 diabetes risk in individuals with this genotype.
All sat’d fats the same?? NO.
No one asks why this is:
Sat’d fats increase endotoxemia to some degree:
1-LPS binding protein
2-Multiple hepatic cells and receptors, including LDL-receptor
3-Small, dense lipoproteins work better for this!!
In total, this FTO mutation is overall beneficial in dealing with endotoxemia dn infection. Consistent with other SNP’s I have (celiac potential, mild iron accretion). Shows direct influence of adaptations to agriculture. DAIRY really increases this for me.
3. (16:51) Familial history of cancer and the Ketogenic diet for prevention
When I look back into my family history, a boatload of people have had various forms of cancer. We've run the gamut of colon cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, etc... I've listened to quite a few podcasts with Dominic D'Agostino in regards to the ketogenic diet as a tool in the toolbox for combating cancer and lessening the effects of Chemo. I've also heard on various podcasts the use of periodic multi-day fasts to help expunge faulty cells from the body in hopes for cancer prevention. I've been looking into these methods of cancer prevention and wanted your two cents on the matter. I'm 32 years old, 6'2", 180lbs. I'm an endurance athlete/run coach and compete in races from 5k-100 miles. If, in your opinion, these are good tools in regards to helping keep cancer at bay, at what age should I start implementing them? How would I go about balancing a ketogenic diet and being an endurance athlete w/out completely frying my adrenals? I'm not necessarily against reassessing my performance goals to include goals of health and longevity. It's not like I'm being paid to be an upper-midpack runner.
Thanks for all that you do! Really looking forward to the new book

4. (24:25) Fasting impact on weight training
when doing longer fasts like 5-7 day should one stop weight training altogether or keep thing business as usual?
5. (26:32) Cycling the carbs: is it supposed to suck
Kate the Great says:
Hey guys, huge fan of the podcast, although I'm only a hundred-some episodes in and trying to catch up. Scroll down for the actual question.
I eat Paleo (duh- how could anyone listen to 100+ hours of Robb Wolf and not eat that way), which means no grains, dairy, legumes, or sugar. I'm also well on my way to converting the metabolically-resistant trifecta of my Baby Boomer mother and father and my Hot Cheeto-loving fiancé-- which seems to be the Holy Grail of Paleo living.
I actually "discovered" Paleo when my fiancé and I did a month-long no-sugar challenge. Part of the protocol involved eliminating grains and dairy before adding it back in, and I noticed how much better I felt when ate things besides grain, dairy, and sugar. Turns out there is a name for it. I shortly transitioned into low-carb Paleo, around 50g-65g/day, because I got healthier and felt better simply eating meat, fish, eggs, sardines, avocado and coconut, and low-starch vegetables.
On low-carb Paleo, I started absolutely shredding weight and dropping body fat. 16% to 12% body fat in two weeks- which was very alarming. My body adapts pretty quickly to whatever is thrown at it, and I tend to gain muscle and drop fat easily, but this was definitely unprecedented. After seeing that weight loss, listening through the podcast, and choosing to add in a few more weekly sessions of BJJ and Muay Thai, I figured it would be prudent to add in some high-carb days.
Here's the curve ball: I'm a cop who works the road, but with a balling swing-shift schedule. 4 days on/4 days off, 1:30 PM to 1:00 AM (and we get paid an hour a day to workout). From what I hear, shift work is the devil, but I haven't had any problems with it. Yet.
I started adding in a high-carb (200g) day every 8 days- it falls on my first day off. Carbs come from corn chips or tortillas at a Mexican restaurant, homemade coconut flour pancakes with banana and blueberries, and tons of raw vegetables (like a party-tray of dipping veggies with no dip).
Here's the problem: on high carb days, I feel like BUTT. Bloating, fatigue, rapid heart rate, inability to focus my eyes or even keep them open, crashing and sleeping 14 hours that night, confusion, extreme thirst, muscle cramping, headaches, stuffy nose, and mental fog. On the following day, I am sluggish to wake up, but fine by the afternoon, and absolutely slay workouts. I'm talking adding 20 lbs to previous weeks' lifts, or able to go for hours nonstop in the ring. I love what the high-carb days do for me, but I hate them in the moment.
This crash doesn't seem normal or healthy, and I can't figure out what it's coming from. Is it (1) a possible gluten exposure/cross-contamination? (2) a downer after four days of high-adrenaline work? (3) entirely too much fiber? (4) a combination of all the above? And am I giving myself the diabetes? What is the reason for this crash; is it a necessary part of carb-cycling, and how do I make it stop? I would go back to all low-carb, but I want to stave off further weight loss and pre-empt a hormonal clusterf*ck with the high-intensity workouts, high-stress job, and low-carb.
Trading Card Stats:
+27 YO female
+5'10" 150 lbs., 13% body fat (walked myself down from 200 lbs and 20% body fat as an SEC hammer thrower 5 years ago)
+Literally perfect lab blood work
+BJJ, Muay Thai, long walks on the beach and candlelight dinners during my four days off (no but really, lots of walking with the martial arts those days)
+Olympic lifting and power lifting (working off Rusin's FHT program right now, but historically have designed my own) and running (sprints or middle distance no greater than 3 miles) on work days
+roughly 150g protein, 100g fat, 50g carbs on low carb days; 150g protein, 20-30g fat, 200g carbs on high-carb days
+supplement with Carlson's fish oil, Natural Calm most nights; adaptogenic herbs or tea PRN after a high-stress work day (get shot at or crash the car, etc.)
+7 hours of sleep on work nights, 9 hours of sleep on off nights
+Hormonal girl stuff is fine.
+Health, longevity, mitigate a stressful job
+Maintain excellent PT scores (1.5 mile run, 1-minute pushups, 1-minute sit-ups, 300 meter sprint)
+SWAT tryouts in a year: involves a 24-hour physical endurance and shooting test with 80 lbs. of gear
+Continue to improve in martial arts so I don't get my narrow Paleo butt handed to me on the street by some dude who eats 7-11 hot dogs.
Huge thanks to you and the team. Don't get any ideas or anything, but I can't believe all this is free. Love and support from VA.
6. (31:20) Weight loss--How much is too much?
About a month ago, I began the sugar elimination Paleo Meal plan. I needed to lose a lot of weight. I have spinal stenosis, severe lumbar arthritis and in the right hip. high blood pressure, prediabetes, Hashimoto's disease, lactose and gluten intolerant, etc. I take medication for the high blood pressure and the Hashimoto's disease. I've been going to the gym for 18 months---working on various muscle groups and doing cardio. I lost NOTHING, but my muscles did firm up---so I lost inches. My doctor and physical therapist were both nagging me to change something to get the weight off. I met with a friend of mine who has a company called: Verri Well. She advised me to do the sugar elimination plan (meat, veggies and fruit each meal). and see how it goes. I did. Within 4 days, the chronic pain I had in my lumbar spine and right hip disappeared. I continued eating meals based on the plan and going to the gym or walking everyday. At the end of a month, I went to my doctor's office for a check in. I lost 35 lbs in the first month. My doctor freaked out saying that it was dangerous for my organs what I was doing. I needed to slow down the weight loss and put peanut butter, bananas back in my diet and lose the citrus fruits. Well, I'm not going to do that because I feel it would hinder my progress. I like the way I'm feeling. My doctor added that my heart and kidneys would not be able to take the rapid weight loss. So, I am asking you for a general opinion. If I am working out everyday, and sticking to a paleo meal plan---Is a weight loss of 35 lbs for the first month unheard of or dangerous for my organs (starting weight was 280lbs)??? If so, what should the amount of pounds be for weight loss? Or does it even matter? I can see my doctor's position if I was anorexic or bulimic. But that is not the case at all. Thank you for reading. I really need your help with this.
