Could A Whole Food, Low Fat, Plant Based Diet Be Right For You?


Can you reverse insulin resistance? Is your diet causing insulin resistance?  Does the research behind high fat diets support their benefit for long term health? Where ELSE fat gets stored besides fat cells that you didn’t realize and what the damage this build up can cause.

I am honored today to have Dr Cryus Khambatta PhD Nutritional Biochemistry  a nutrition and fitness coach with a very effective approach for reversing insulin resistance. We dive into many controversial topics about todays latest diet approaches and how they could backfire in the long term, Intermittent fasting and exactly how to execute it for a beginner, the only fats your really need if your main goal is longevity, the actual range  of protein you should eat if extending your years on this planet is a goal an much much more.

I learned a lot and I know you will too.

Enjoy 🙂

My Personal Take On Diets…It Depends on Your Goals

As the war on carbs continues and diet battles rage on all over the wild west of  the internet. I find myself thinking  until the point vomiting about this topic…seriously.

I’ve retired from arguing ANY side of the food/diet battle and now try to  live and coach using what I find works in most scenarios and by whats produced results in large populations.

Results, is where we all need to begin because the simple truth is this.

The specific result your after DICTATES the diet that is best for you. Period.

With that in mind its safe to say that ALL DIETS WORK if the goal.

  • Vegan diet Yup
  • Paleo diet Yup
  • High Carb diet Yup
  • Low Carb Yup
  • Keto Yup
  • Eat shit  Yup
  • Atkins Diet why not
  • South beach, zone, wild etc..

The point of this post is simple the goal of the diet your using dictates whether or not its successful in your eyes. A high protein diet helps build muscle, but it may not be good if you just want to live longer. A vegan diet probably wouldn’t perform very well for someone training for maximum hypertrophy. Your goal dictates your diet strategy and in life your goals change, so I’m a firm believer of adapting your strategy to meet your goals.

My personal approach gets constantly tweaked by the goal and through finding new methods that might help me reach my goal. So I might dabble with a vegan diet, low fat when my goals change or I might go keto for a bit… who knows?! Its dictated by the goal. Period
