danielvitalisMy friend @noragedgaudas — author, nutritionist and repeat ReWild Yourself Podcast guest — joins me to discuss the essential nutrient that our bodies literally evolved to eat: Fat. In her latest book Primal Fat Burner (coming soon to a bookstore near you!), Nora refutes the popular mainstream belief that saturated fat is the culprit of disease and shares how dietary fat is actually crucial to vibrant physical and mental health.
We cover a lot of ground in this episode as Nora guides us through the ancestral diet we are built for, the nutrients we need to acquire from animal-sourced foods and cultivating a foundational metabolism. We also get into some fascinating side tangents — from ethical issues in the world of natural foods to corporate funding of veganism to alcohol to feminism. Enjoy!
- danielvitalis@nataliefoote wow, means a lot to me. Thank you. As far as the shell, hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org for an address! Thanks! 🎉
- danielvitalis@wellnessballa no, what's the premise?
- danielvitalis@joharrisontattoo love your work, stoked you are joining us
- wellnessballa@danielvitalis That wheat ( or grains) isn't necessarily the problem; problem is our weak digestion that can't break it down properly even though there's evidence that hunter gatherers used to eat wheat ( a grass that covered Africa) much much before agriculture. Also that wheat is to be consumed seasonally in Fall and winter when we have special enzymes to digest it and should be consumed in proper form such as sourdough bread.
- anthonypirroccoLove reading and listening to your work!
- lady_explores@danielvitalis @noragedgaudas are you Lithuanian?
- liveyournatureIncredible episode. I learned so much. As a recovering vegan I've been starting again with food and I'm excited to have a new relationship with animal fats. In the absence of any other wild animal food other than fish, what animals would be good to raise for good fat supply. I could get chickens, goats, sheep. Maybe a cow next year.
- stirringwhimsyJust finished the podcast. Oh wow. I just finished my program in holistic nutrition. If Nora was a guest speaker, jaws would be hanging open. Definitely not topics we discussed! Love it.
- danielvitalis@liveyournature 🙌🏽
- danielvitalis@stirringwhimsy they lean the other way 😏
- danielvitalis@anthonypirrocco thank you 🙏🏾
- danielvitalisThanks @wellnessballa I'm skeptical of this info I must admit, since our wheat has been changed considerably ~ today's wheat was substantially altered through gamma radiation induced genetic mutations in the early days of genetic modification. Even "organic" wheat comes from this lineage. Hunter gatherers would have consumed wild wheat of course, but only those groups in the bio-region it was from. There wheat was substantially lower in gluten, and the gluten we eat today is a novel form of the protein generated through the experimentation I mentioned above. I've eaten Eincorn - a more ancient form of wheat - with good success. Today's wheat doesn't really reflect what the ancestral peoples of that place would have consumed.
- stirringwhimsy@danielvitalis hahaha...yes. I did, too, but then I got sick...and got enlightened. Keep posting amazing things...and no hunting any elephants, right? 🙀😀
- danielvitalis@stirringwhimsy ~ I can't promise anything 🐘🍽😜
- monitamommyWow what an incredible podcast episode! I am blown away by Nora and her knowledge! Can't wait for the book! ❤️
- noragedgaudas@lady_explores 100 percent Lithuanian! ❤
- noragedgaudas@danielvitalis Anytime Daniel. Love you brother! ❤
- noragedgaudas@monitamommy Thanks! 🙏❤️
- denellnawrockiLoved this episode!
- sambmarshI attempted to read 'Primal Body, Primal Mind' around 6 months ago, and didn't get very far into it - the writing style just didn't resonate with me (although the information was totally resonant). I gave up reading it, and felt a little disappointed considering I had heard so much about this book, and @noragedgaudas . This interview totally kindled a love for her and her work - as you said @danielvitalis , her brain is so incredible! Every single point that she made had me laughing in euphoric agreement. We need 'world leaders' (I'm not into hierarchical society, but that's the reality we are living in currently), like you two!
