Taking all the science in the world of food and nutrition, how do we now create better food companies and tools that would focus on human health rather than be another catastrophe for humanity? Bio: In early 2015 Marty started blogging at OptimisingNutrition.com. He tries to provide clarity around many of the confusing and conflicting issues in nutrition, often using a quantitative approach. While his blog posts can sometimes go deep on a topic, he has also worked to develop a shortlist of optimal foods to suit different goals by balancing the sometimes-competing parameters of nutrient density, insulin load and energy density. His most recent project is the Nutrient Optimiser which consolidates his thinking into an automated system that reviews a person's current diet to provide a shortlist of recommended foods to provide the nutrients they are not getting enough of while supporting their goals Time Stamps: 0:18 – Product Announcement & Amazon Sale 6:15 – The Colosseum of Optimising Nutrition 8:15 – How type 2 diabetes evolved and began 12:07 – Blood test results on carnivore diet 17:07 – Nutrient dilution in agriculture 19:14 – Building a better food company for the future 22:10 - Signs you are diabetic 27:27 – Any evidence on nutrient driven satiety? 30:07 – How is research carried out in food and health industry? 33:00 – Complete transparency in business infrastructures 37:02 – How does a dummy learn about nutrition 41:30 – Dealing with dogmatic intellectuals 43:28 – High fat, low protein and fat loss? 47:22 – Are benefits of keto from elimination or because of ketones? 54:14 – How do I know my diet works? 55:30 – Fat loss stall while still in energy deficit 57:40 – The positives and negatives of bulletproof coffee 1:00:00 – What drives you? 1:05:21 – Food tolerances and intolerances 1:11:11 – Bioavailability of foods 1:12:08 – What Would Marty Kendall Do?

Back in 2016, Danny Vega was a carb-fueled powerlifter. He ate and trained according to conventional wisdom, but he started to notice he didn’t feel his best. After his cheat days turned into cheat weekends and his health began to suffer, he decided to ditch conventional advice and try a ketogenic diet. But he didn’t go at it alone. He and his wife Maura wanted to adopt a healthier lifestyle as a family, so they began teaching their two sons about nutrition, keto, and healthy habits. Danny’s children had always been homeschooled, so he and his wife were used to giving them a hands-on education. It was no different when it came to nutrition. They gradually worked their way from drive-thru meals and Wendy’s hamburger patties to healthy amounts of meat and low carb veggies. Getting healthier as a family is challenging, especially when eating out and buying processed snacks is much more convenient. Danny and Maura learned a lot along the way, and that’s why in today’s episode I’m sitting down with Danny to talk about their journey. Danny is a powerlifter, father, and co-host of The Ketogenic Athlete podcast. He received his Masters of Science in Human Performance from the University of Florida and he’s a former Strength and Conditioning coach. In our chat, we dive into how to teach children about food, how to get your family on board with healthy habits, how Danny trains now that he’s fat-adapted, and a lot more. We go over: How Danny first discovered the ketogenic diet How Danny felt after starting a keto diet as a powerlifter Everything he and his wife did to gradually improve their sons’ diets The problem with kids’ menus Why children should be eating the same foods as healthy adults How modern diets contribute to insulin resistance in children Why it’s important that children reset their hunger and palate when transitioning to eating real food Why changing a kid’s palate is difficult — and how to make it happen Why hyperpalatable foods are problematic How Danny’s kids eat now Why you should avoid forcing vegetables on children Why Danny and his wife homeschool their kids How to find social groups for homeschooled children How to teach your kids about movement Why Danny and his wife don’t put screen limitations on their children What the Montessori teaching method is The multiple problems with traditional education Why tailored education matters How Danny and Maura teach their children about money management, entrepreneurship, and building character Why Danny went carnivore What SuperStarch is and how it can help fat-adapted powerlifters The new training style Danny is following
You've all heard about the Ketogenic Diet. In this podcast we talk about some of the finer details of what constitutes a Ketogenic Diet and how it works.

When we were developing our Energy Pods, we wanted to know how various types of fats changed the composition of the product itself and how they would impact the body in the long run. In this podcast, we look at heart disease, obesity, cancer and various chronic condition and how Omega 6 fatty acids and various fats impact humans and animals. It also explains why we preferably use Ghee & MCT Oil which are saturated fats in all our products.

🔴BIO: Danny and Maura Vega are Miami natives who now reside in Tampa, Florida. Danny was the starting runningback for his high school football team and led the county in rushing yards. He went on to receive his bachelor's degree from Columbia University in 2004, where he was a member of the football team. After college, he pursued his Master's of Science at the University of Florida, where he worked with the national championship men's basketball team, women's basketball, tennis and golf. He then went on to become the Strength and Conditioning coordinator for VCU basketball, helping the Rams win the 2007 conference championship.
Maura had a passion for dance since she was a young girl. She is classically trained in ballet, jazz, and contemporary. After high school she found herself struggling with her weight, and spent the next several years restricting food and even went as far as trying out a plant based diet for the sole purpose of "being skinny." A ketogenic lifestyle has not only freed her of her disordered eating, but she has also found relief from severe postpartum depression and anxiety.
These days, Maura and Danny can be found spending most of their time with their two boys. They have a unique way of thinking when it comes to children, and how to raise them. They unschool both of their boys who are also now following a ketogenic diet. Both boys have found relief from allergies and autoimmune issues with a ketogenic diet. They hope to inspire and change the way we see and treat children, and also how we feed them.
