Crosby Tailor is a low carb dessert chef, wellness expert, and fitness model with an incredible intuition for nutrition, exercise, and self experimentation. He returns to the show (check out his last appearance here) to discuss, dissect, and mythbust current dietary trends including the carnivore diet, veganism, the ketogenic (keto) diet, and fruitarianism.
What you'll learn from this episode:
What the carnivore diet is, what research suggests about its health benefits, and my informed guess about why this extreme diet might actually be working.
The ins and outs of veganism and how to approach such a diet in a way that minimizes the chances of digestive mishaps.
If you need to attain perpetual ketosis for the ketogenic diet to work.
Crosby's daily routine that helps him hover around eight percent body fat while maintaining high performance in the gym.
How you might determine which diet is right for you.
And much more!
