Robb Wolf - Part 2

Robb Wolf is the author of the New York Times Best Seller The Paleo Solution, the very book that has since made him a popular figure in the health and fitness world. When he’s not writing new books, he’s practicing mixed martial arts, coaches athletes, and conducts seminars in nutrition and strength to both small groups of people and large entities.
Today, Robb gives us his thoughts on why the ketogenic diet – as effective as it is – is not the best diet out there, how his new book connects with his other books, and why people should always be critical on a way a diet is making them feel or perform.

Inadequate social connection, love and intimacy is as impactful on our health as a pack a day smoking habit.” Robb Wolf

In this episode, you’ll learn:

The Paleo diet is the foundation of Robb’s 30-day reset.
The paleo lifestyle template changed medicine and nutrition forever.
The ketogenic diet is effective and makes a lot of people feel great and perform better but it's just part of the many tools in a huge toolbox just like fasting.
Ketogenic diets may not be as effective especially when it comes to athletes or bodybuilders due to its low-carb nature.
A good diet should help improve your biomarkers. If they don't, then there's a different approach for you, there's something out there that will work.
Sleep deprivation causes insulin resistance. If your job requires you to stay up at night until morning, something low carb or ketogenic in nature is your best bet.
Type A people shouldn't do intermittent fasting because fasting stresses your system and being Type A means your system is most likely stressed. On the other hand, the laidback worker, could benefit from intermittent fasting.

Key Takeaways:

You can't not produce a book thru mainstream publishers and not have some sort of a weight loss element to it.
A good diet should help improve your biomarkers. If they don't, then there's a different approach for you, there's something out there that will work.
