Since then, Chris has been healthy and has reached a healthy weight using a low-carb approach to eating.
We are so happy to have Ivor Cummins, the Fat Emperor, back on the show!

We are joined on the podcast today by Amber O’Hearn. Amber is someone who found success with the low carb diet, and who found even greater success with a carnivore diet.

Facing severe opposition from the medical establishment, Dr. Noakes ultimately succeeded in defending the legitimacy of his position.
Today we are joined by Forage Agronomist and Ruminant Nutritionist, Dr. Peter Ballerstedt. His main message for us today is simply this: there is no sustainable food system without ruminant animal agriculture. Ruminant animals (like cows), have gotten a bad rap (from an environmental and a dietary perspective) for a long time, but Dr. Ballerstedt is here to show us the facts—and those facts run quite contrary to the popular perspective.
We are so excited to have Dr. Cate Shanahan back on the show to talk about her brand new book, The Fatburn Fix.
