The Genius Life 64: Secrets of the Carnivore Diet Revealed | Paul Saladino, MD

Paul Saladino, MD is a licensed physician and functional medicine expert who currently advocates for and consumes a "carnivore," or all-meat, diet, and he is the host of the Fundamental Health podcast.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Why the carnivore diet is generating such buzz, the scientific reasoning behind its claimed benefits, who it can potentially benefit, and how to execute this diet properly.

  • Why Dr. Saladino believes the associations between plant consumption and longevity is weak science.

  • The plants likely in your kitchen right now that are the most toxic, according to Dr. Saladino -- including one I routinely eat.

  • Why, despite eating a ton of red meat, unhealthy iron accumulation isn't a concern for Dr. Saladino.

  • Why Dr. Saladino doesn't believe you need fiber for good digestion or healthy microbiome.

  • And much more!
