It’s time for another Q&A!

Today we’re talking about the Carnivore Scores food ranking chart and the tradeoff between nutrition and plant reactivity, as well as environmental hormesis (like going from cold temperatures to hot) vs plant hormesis. You’ll learn why we don’t need polyphenols and oxalates, and I also touch on the usefulness of doing a 30-day carnivore experiment and the adding back less offensive plant foods (click here for the Carnivore Scores chart to see which plant foods are included on the list). I also talk about the importance of doing “rebound workouts” and why recovery should be the centerpiece of one’s training program. We wrap up with a discussion about inspiring your family to improve their sleep habits by actually walking your talk and setting the example for them.


Brad talks about Usain Bolt as an example of questioning genes vs. training, environment, etc. in creating the talent of a fine athlete. [01:38]

Forward thinking leaders in fitness advocate a kinder, gentler approach to training. [04:39]

Recovery is a major emphasis. Often you are not aware of how tired you are after a workout. [06:02]

It is always important to tone everything down. You need to limit your heart rate to 180 minus your age. Get a heart monitor if you are doing extreme workouts. [10:06]

Having extreme fitness goals could be at the expense of your health and longevity. [17:25]

Casey asks why the carnivore diet on Brad’s published chart includes nuts and chocolate which are oxalates. [19:30]

It is a good idea to try the carnivore diet for 30 days and see what you can learn about your body. You then gradually add back the foods that you want. [30:12]

Stanley Johnson is asking about sleep routines for his family. Sleep needs actually vary according to the time of year. [33:13]
