The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 255: Live Show Part 1

  • Intro (0:00)
  • Welcome to the live show (:40)
  • How this show is different from our normal shows
    • There's a live audience (duh!)
    • We are in the same room
    • We don't have notes, which is really unusual for Sarah!
  • Sarah's family is visiting Stacy's for the holiday weekend
    • The road trip was tiring for Sarah's family
    • Yesterday they took all the kids from the National Mall to all the national memorials
    • Sarah's kids are dual citizens, and there's a great tie-in with what they're learning in school
  • Finn and Adele say "hi" to the audience
  • Laurel's Question: should she introduce her toddler to wheat given her family's history with Celiac disease?
    • Sarah says there's some scientific evidence for the idea of introducing Top 8 Allergen Foods before weaning to reduce overt reactions

      • This might work because of the positive effects of antibodies from breast milk and its gut protecting benefits
    • Once you've missed that window, other things that affect a reaction are gut health, stress (maybe not for toddlers), sleep, activity
    • If you're doing all the things to promote a healthy lifestyle and gut health, there's a higher probability you won't see a reaction
    • In that case, it might help you feel a little more at ease in case your child is accidentally exposed to the allergen
    • Stacy and Matt went through this with their youngest, who was never exposed to allergens intentionally, and had a good experience with his preschool even when he was accidentally exposed to wheat because his immune system is so strong from years of a healthy gut and great lifestyle choices
    • Sarah's youngest has a stronger reaction to dairy than to gluten, and she's tested raw, A2 milk with her (her tonsils swelled up in 5 minutes and stayed swollen for months, so that was a no-go as a cross-contamination exposure)
      • Interestingly, we think the tonsils are an early-detection system for food antigens we don't deal well with
      • Upwards of 50% of kids awaiting tonsillectomies will see a reduction in swelling when they go dairy-free. Sarah's thinking is the other 50% are probably just dealing with another type of food sensitivity.
    • Unfortunately, sometimes the challenge part of reintroductions can yield tricky reactions. We just have to plan for different outcomes
    • Stacy says try not to worry too much about what your children will choose for themselves when they get older
  • Can you develop Celiac if you're never exposed to Gluten?
    • Sarah says it's a Chicken 'n Egg situation: we can't test if there's no exposure, but we can't know if you were never going to develop it either way
    • If you have the predisposition, immune dysregulation, but are missing the trigger, you can't actually develop without it. Stacy asks, "what about Gluten cross-reactivity?"
      • In the case of Celiac, it's not actually antibody driven. The damage to the intestine is driven by the zonulin response. Sarah hasn't seen any papers indicating Celiac can be triggered by rice or corn, for example, likely because kids living without any gluten exposure is a fairly new concept
      • Also no evidence (to Sarah's knowledge) of a zonulin response to a different protein, other than gluten
    • Basically, comes down to the idea that you can't get a positive Celiac test result without exposure. False negatives are common
  • Amy's question: what's the optimal time to start solids, given that he has some symptoms of eczema which would indicate problems with gut health?
    • Usually, 6 months is the standard, as gut becomes mature enough for solids around this time
    • There's also evidence that introducing solids actually drives the maturation of the gut
    • There really isn't a way to know whether your baby's gut is mature or not
    • You could also start with a little sauerkraut juice, sips of broth to help prepare the gut for solids
    • The other signs you're looking for are tongue thrusts, baby's interest in solids, not spitting things out, baby is sitting up straight — these are all signs used in baby-led weaning
    • Stacy and Matt called this the "lazy" approach to parenting, but it's actually very instinctual and closer to the attachment parenting style

The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 253: Coconut Oil Controversy

  • Intro (0:00)
  • News and Views (0:40)
  • CONTROVERSY IN PALEO!? Coconut oil isn't heart healthy?!
    • A news story has swept through the paleo community saying that perhaps coconut oil isn't healthy to eat.
    • See news stories like here. This is based on a report from the American Heart Association, which is always changing its ideas on fats.
    • First off, this study says nothing about topical use, and we put it on everything!
    • Coconut oil is a unique plant fat because it is 60% saturated fat, but different from animal saturated fats in that it is a medium chain triglycerides. For example, lauric acid, which is only a little longer than the health healthy fatty acids.
    • Saturated fats are the easiest to use for energy. Medium chain only need one step to produce energy as well.
    • See Sarah's post on saturated fat: It can be healthy, but you can overdo it!
    • Hunter-gatherers tended to have 13% of calories as saturated fat, which is a normal omnivorous diet without going out of your way to eat fat.
    • Study compared oleic fatty acid fats versus coconut oil and found that some people had an increase in LDL, HDL and total cholesterol. But only some!
    • This is due to a gene that makes some people more susceptible to fat causing cholesterol and LDL increase. This is called APOE4.
    • These people should stick to a 20-30% fat intake for heart health. We still need fat for cell health, brain health, gut health, etc!
    • Of course some studies of coconut oil find no change in heart health with coconut oil.
    • The end result of these studies don't offset all the benefits of coconut oil. It's anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, cell health, immune health, gut health etc.
    • And remember: eating vegetables and seafood, Vitamin D, sleep, exercise and stress reduction are all better ways to improve heart health!
    • And 60% of calories from fat is the threshold where we see cardiovascular health problems.

The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 252: How Do I Lose Weight With My Restrictions Without Going Low Carb?

  • Intro (0:00)
  • News and Views (0:40)
    • Do you have summer adjustment issues? Sarah does!
    • Sarah is trying to finish her books and give her kids attention.
    • Meanwhile, Stacy is managing her time with adding working out back into her schedule.
    • Stacy had a run in with a notorious troll. She was told she has to lose weight before she works out to minimize injury.
    • That's complete nonsense! Sarah agrees! Stacy turned it into an opportunity to talk about communication. We call this kind of person a "self-help troll".
    • Sarah had a similar experience when she went on antibiotics for pneumonia recently, despite us saying that there's definitely a time and a place for medicine!
    • But people who are concern trolling are "D words"
    • Sarah has been doing a series on healthy weight loss on her blog. Check it out!
    • Sarah does a lot of research on this! She knows what she's talking about! But so many people tangentially related to paleo are selling you bad advice with extreme recommendations and bad science. This stuff can destroy hormones, endocrine systems, and metabolism!
    • Remember: Movement is essentially for health at any size! So much of science agrees!
    • Anyone with an internet connection can post something, so figure out why people are saying what they are saying!
    • You can love and respect yourself AND desire to lose weight!
  • Question from Jen: "Since I know you and Sarah have both lost weight, I wanted to ask for some suggestions. I lost weight going Paleo a few years ago, around 55 pounds. I have more than 100 to lose but those 55 were amazing. Problem was I also losing my hair. I added back potatoes, rice & more carbs and the hair loss stopped but the weight loss stopped too. (I've since read about low carb and thyroid issues - I have Hashis). But even adding carbs, I gained nothing back - just stayed the same. Went through a major life stressor a couple years ago and gained it all back plus some. I want to attempt to get it off again but I'm at a loss as to what to do. I've read Sarah lost most of her weight low carb but I'm so afraid to do that again. I'm not trying to get skinny, but I want to feel more functional again. It's super hard to follow most weight loss blogs since I already can't eat gluten or oats or much dairy or too many raw veggies or nightshades... lol! Any direction or advice you may have would be super appreciated."
    • Low carb does not have a metabolic advantage: it just tricks you into eating less!
    • Actually that's the same as paleo. On average, people are eating about 400 calories less per day
    • While it's not as simple as calories in/calories out, calories do matter for weight loss!
    • Weight loss can have negative effects while you're doing it. Often there is nutrient deficiencies (which can stop your fat burning!)
    • Exercise burns calories and increases metabolic rate! Very good
    • Sleep loss will cause you to overeat and messes with hormones
    • Stress will also cause you to hold on to weight.
    • Taken all these factors together and you are left with a paleo template!
    • Healthy weight loss is slow!
    • Hyper palatable foods are a problem: They override your satiety sensations and make you want more!
    • Sarah recommends eating veggies to compensate!
    • Denise Minger reminded us that eating fat and refined carbohydrates leads to weight gain.
    • Stacy has mindsets that she has from low carb weight loss that she is trying to break. Like drinking bulletproof coffee in the morning.
    • Sort through your food habits to see what you can fix for weight loss.
    • Use an app to track your eating habits as a food journal to see where your extra calories are coming from! Try Chronometer or MyFitnessPal.
    • Snacking tends to be the biggest issue, especially with lack of sleep.
    • Are you getting enough fiber and proteins? Are you getting enough nutrients? What's going on?
    • If you can, get a body composition measurement to see what's going on. Get your basal metabolic rate to see where your calorie requirements are.
    • Also, don't sit down to a plate of only carbs. Pair them with other foods or right before bed.
    • Starchy vegetables can probably be your only source of carbs plus some fruit
    • See Sarah's posts on weight loss here.
    • Being thin is not the same thing as being healthy. And losing weight is not the same as getting healthy.
    • Losing excess weight is a side effect of getting healthy. Being overweight is only a symptom.

The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 251: Transitioning Out of Depression

  • Intro (0:00)
  • News and Views (0:40)
    • Go see Wonder Woman! It's awesome! Buy the soundtrack!
    • Stacy and Sarah talk comic book movies?! What dorks! I approve
    • How you didn't miss the video podcast last week!
    • For more on Sarah's bedtime protocol, see her book Go To Bed!
    • Today is an update on Stacy's health and mental recovery.
    • Stacy had a devastating back injury detailed in podcast form here.
    • She's also had some intense emotional blows in the past year including losing her brother-in-law and best friend Andrew
    • She went on mediations, specifically an SSRI, which helps with eating disorders, which seemed to be coming back when she was depressed.
    • Unfortunately it was disrupting her sleep! She also had an issue with mindless eating as well.
    • So she switched to an SNRI, but she didn't feel any different. But she found that she felt okay, so she went off her medication.
    • Sarah recommends looking at conventional medicine the same way we look at foods: see the pros and cons
    • These medicines work by effecting neurotransmitters and and keeping the happy ones in circulation longer.
    • In addition to SNRI and SSRI, there's also NDRI
    • Treating chronic depression is a long term thing on these drugs: 6 months - 2 years. And discontinuing use is a tapering off process.
    • Stacy knew she didn't need the medication because of how well she was able to deal with the selling of her house.
    • Stacy and Sarah both recommend positive thinking and focusing on positivity to see you through.
    • Stacy references the tragic story of Oprah endorsing The Secret and then having someone declare that she would use The Secret to fight cancer. This person later died. Of cancer.
    • Stacy also did 45 days of super clean eating except for one occasion. This helped her very much. Plus she added collagen and veggies
    • Big recommendation for Dr Sarah Ballantyne's Vital Veggies Blend from Vital Proteins!
    • Remember: medication is never a failure, but there are ways to help yourself recover from mood disorders
      • Sleep
      • Exercise (and exercise outside is better than exercise indoors)
      • Omega-3s (EPA and DHA, from fish and shellfish and some grass fed meat)
      • Vitamin D
      • B Vitamin deficiencies: folate, B9, especially.
      • If you're not methylating properly because of a MTHFR mutation or otherwise, you'll build up homocysteine in the blood. Make sure you're B Vitamin sufficient, especially in B6, B9, and B12! Stacy takes the Vital Protein Liver Pills.
      • Zinc is important as well. Some 70% are not sufficient in it. Shellfish and liver are the most plentiful in it and it is used in neurotransmitters.
      • Amino acids: tyrosine and phenylalanine (precursor for norepinephrine), methionine (precursor for SAMe), glycine (reduces signs of schizophrenia) and taurine (reduces bipolar)
    • More organ meat and more seafood to treat mental disorders!
    • Remember the link between gut health and mental health! Our bacteria friends can help our brains!

The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 249: Paleo FX 2017 Recap!

  • Intro (0:00)
  • News and Views (0:40)
    • Welcome back from Texas, Sarah! Sorry you lost your voice! Sarah always tries to take it easy after travel because it hits her hard.
    • We counted wrong. This is 249, not 250. But next week will be special!
    • Sarah is back from Paleo FX, our favorite paleo event! We love meeting people, talking to people and finding interesting stories.
    • Weekly reminder that Paleo Principles is coming soon!
    • Stacy couldn't make it this year because we had so much going on this year, including selling our house!
    • This year Paleo FX wasn't about "carbs" or other controversies, but on getting back to the anthropological roots, it seemed.
    • Sarah feels like she didn't have to defend science as a concept this year like she has in the past. Remember: science is a process for finding truth, not a monolithic set of ideas.
    • The idea of Paleo FX is paleo as implemented into practice. So getting into minutiae seems silly.
    • Sarah's talk was about what we know from scientific reaseach about reducing disease risk. She thought it was well received.
    • Paleo FX did seem to be focusing on synthesizing modern and evolutionary biology.
    • Several talks focused on lifestyle factors like sleep. Sarah liked hearing about it from Dan Pardi and Dr. Kirk Parsley
    • Next year, Paleo FX is rebranding to Health FX, a controversial decision!
    • Sarah and Stacy think this is part of a greater movement to make paleo idea more mainstream and associated with just good health.
    • Just make sure that your conference doesn't suddenly become full of angry vegans!
    • Some things that Sarah loved:
    • Stacy was happy to see that Aimee Rose, who she met through Strongman has been at Paleo FX two years in a row!
    • Paleo FX has a service called Paleo FX TV which allows you to see all the talks from the history of Paleo FX as a subscription service.
    • Next week is episode 250! Exciting!

The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 248: Eczema, Kids, and Paleo

  • Intro (0:00)
  • News and Views (0:40)
    • We're back! Thanks for joining us!
    • For the record, this is episode 248. Episode 249 will be in two weeks. They ARE bad at episode math!
    • And we've never missed a single week!
    • Stacy tells a story about letting go when people act crazy at you for silly reasons. So if you're not happy with our podcast, that's totally fine!
    • Sarah is done with all of Paleo Principles now! Only editing now! Still coming out September 5th! And look out for the audiobook too!
    • Today's topic is about Eczema in kids and how do you get your kid to accept healing food choices.
  • Question (14:32): "I am a mom of four boys, two of whom have eczema. My 11 year old is really struggling lately. He has had eczema for years but it is getting worse. He has discoloration on his arms due to the eczema and since July has had recurring skin infections. The doctors (pediatrician and dermatologist) have no other suggestions besides creams and oral antibiotics. I asked about tips for trying an elimination diet, or further testing for food sensitivities and was told that diet doesn't make much of a difference (which I don't believe). Do you have suggestions on how to proceed? Should we start with an elimination diet/paleo or should he have further medical testing? Or testing for food sensitivities? He had basic allergy testing a few years ago that was negative. We use natural skin care and cleaning products. He also has a history of being on antibiotics quite a bit in the past--frequent ear infections and ear tubes as an infant, then 8 or more bouts of strep throat about 4 years ago. He has been on oral antibiotics three times since July for the skin infection, and another time we waited to fill a prescription and just used an prescription antibiotic ointment that helped for the most part. I hate for him to be on antibiotics again but he showed me tonight that he has some spots that are severe and look infected again. I am desperate for some advice! I am working on going paleo myself, but am not 100% at this time. Any suggestions on how to help the family get on board? I recently found your podcast and keep hearing about the paleo family toolkit but it seems that it isn't available anymore. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!"
    • Stacy's son Finn had eczema. We approached this by doing it as a family, not just him alone. We often do family "junk food resets" that we commit to for a certain amount of time. Stacy recommends clean paleo eating for 2 weeks to 30 days commitment.
    • Focus on non-food celebrations or activities. Stacy used to do family games instead of desserts.
    • An elimination diet will be key for these issues. Symptoms seem to be a gut dysbiosis
    • Eczema is hard to draw a link to a food sensitivities. Remember sensitivity is different from an allergy because no antibodies are formed.
    • Food intolerances and food allergies are linked to eczema, but not necessarily sensitivities, but ditching the top 8 allergenic foods is a recommendation for eczema for years.
    • Sarah actually cleared her own eczema with paleo
    • Eczema is thought to be a barrier abnormality in the skin that is allowing bad things into the skin. "Leaky skin"
    • Sarah reminds you not to feel shame about taking antibiotics, though frequent use can harm the gut microbiome. There's a link between gut health with skin health
    • Key nutrients for skin barrier health are Retinoic acid (Vitamin A) and Vitamin D. Get those checked! The supplement with Vitamin D3 if below 30 and retest!
    • Some 70% are deficient in Vitamin D and 57% are deficient in Vitamin A!
    • Also, zinc is good for skin health
    • Make sure you get protein, especially the amino acid Glycine (found in collagen and gelatin in good amounts! Try Vital Protein!), Arginine, and Glutamine
    • Look at your diet to determine if your diet is sufficient for a healthy skin barrier. Make sure you're getting plenty of fruits and veggies as well.
    • See if you can sneak in more nutrition into the diet (maybe ground organ meats into other ground meat)
    • Stacy says to remind kids that elimination diet isn't necessarily forever. You may be able to reintroduce foods later on.
    • And your child will get used to it, especially when they notice that eating certain things causes them issues.
    • Sarah recommends a procedure to getting closer to elimination (Try Real Life Paleo!) and adding veggies and Omega-3s (from seafood, especially or fish oil) as you move towards it.
    • Fish oil by itself can improve gut microbiome in only two weeks!
    • Also, eat raw ferments like pickles and sauerkraut, kombucha, water kefir, etc. as well to get the big diversity of bacteria. There could be up to 650 strains in these foods as opposed to 20 strains in supplements! Remember: the live stuff, not the pasteurized.
    • Yogurt might be good as well, but dairy is often linked to skin issues.
    • Check into nightshades because that's also often a trigger (tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, etc.)
    • Skin care products:
    • Look into better cleaning products as well like detergents and other cleaners that will be gentler.
  • Rate and Review us! Goodbye!

Ep. 247: How Do I Weigh Quality and Budget in Dairy Products?

In this episode, Stacy and Sarah answer a question about dairy. What if you find grass-fed dairy to be prohibitively expensive? Could you still eat it if it was conventional in a regular milk bag?

The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 247: How Do I Weigh Quality and Budget in Dairy Products?

  • Intro (0:00)
  • News and Views (0:40)
    • Welcome back everyone!
    • Stacy has sold her house, for real, y'all! But now she has to buy a new one or else the family will be homeless! (Not really, but it can feel like that!)
    • Hopefully, she'll get a new house soon!
    • Meanwhile, Paleo Principles is almost done and turned in!
    • Think of it as The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook smashed together, but more about general paleo than autoimmune. Get it in September!
    • Sarah is just going to Just Keep Swimming until she's done! And maybe Just Survive Somehow (CW: clips are from The Walking Dead) as well
    • Sarah is also going to record her own abridged audiobook! How cool is that! Stacy recommends the audiobook for Liz Wolfe's Eat the Yolks.
    • Stacy's Pukka Cinnamon Licorice Tea!
    • Today's show and question is about weighing quality and budget. How do you choose between them?
  • Question (11:24): "I have a question about dairy- I follow AIP and have been able to reintroduce some foods. One of them is butter. Living in Canada we unfortunately don't have access to grass fed butter as readily as the US. This means that it is very hard to find any grassfed butter or dairy products and when I do, at a rare specialty health food store, grass fed dairy products are VERY expensive and very much out of our budget, even though we have set a large budget for high quality, nutrient dense foods. I have been eating butter regularly since being pregnant, and only buy Canada Grade A quality butter with cream and sea salt as the ingredients. I tolerate this well and seem to be craving this throughout my recent pregnancy. Is consuming this butter still a wise choice? In terms of other dairy products that I would like to eventually try and reintroduce what should I look for? Especially when grassfed is not an option...do the same principles apply in terms of grassfed vs conventional beef? Should I be purchasing homogenized or skim milk for my husband who does well with dairy? Should we aim to consume dairy on a less frequent basis and buy the more expensive cheeses (still not perfect or grassfed) from the deli section of the grocery store that have less added ingredients, rather than the classics large brick of brand name cheese? Any information would be greatly appreciated!!"
    • Remember: Paleo isn't a religion. Focus on anti-inflammatory foods that are high quality and nutrition. If you're adding these kinds of periphery foods, it's you won't be kicked from the club if you don't eat grass-fed dairy. Do what works best for you.
    • Look into local farmers in your area if possible and get a relationship with a direct source.
    • Sarah says that many cattle in this area of Canada are pastured, but are supplemented with grains. So they're better than grain fed, but not entirely grass-fed.
    • Dairy is a food you need to weigh if it works for you. It's a good source of vitamins and minerals, and great fats. But it's much better if it's pastured because the good stuff is in the fat.
    • Sensitivity to milk is high. For instance, the occurrence of lactose intolerance can be as high as 90% in some populations of people of Asian or African descent. Allergy rate is 4-6%.
    • They tested people with IBS symptoms and found that many people found relief when they eliminated dairy. Intolerance to dairy is super high!
    • People are always talking about foods as yes or no foods, but sometimes there is a maybe food. This is where individuality comes in. Some people will tolerate something like dairy better than others. For example, Sarah and her family don't eat dairy hardly at all because they don't tolerate it well, but Stacy does eat it.
    • Sarah recommends not drinking skim. You won't get the value that comes from the milk fat!
    • So if you are happy with how well you tolerate dairy, then don't feel guilty about it!
    • Stacy wants you to make a distinction between foods that make you feel good and foods that don't make you feel too terrible.
    • For example, Stacy figured out why she thought she couldn't eat eggs: because she was eating them alone and her lack of gallbladder made it hard for her to eat that much fat with nothing else.
    • Take an appraisal of your diet like Stacy does. Figure out what's making you feel your best! Then eat that.
    • You will tolerate things better if you are eating a nutrient dense diet, with vegetables and ample sleep and low stress. Everything works together and if things fall apart, you will start reacting to more things!
    • Paleo doesn't have to break the bank. Making just the basic choices will get you so far, even if you can't do grass-fed, organic, etc.

The Paleo View (TPV), Episode 246: How to Preserve Yourself Through Chaotic Times

  • Intro (0:00)
  • News and Views (0:40)
    • Stacy has had a crazy week so we're recording short and late!
    • Stacy sold her house, then the buys backed out, then she sold it again! Meanwhile, she aggravated her back when removing her clothes!
    • Stacy is feeling better now, especially since she's learned how to treat back injury flare ups. See Episode 204 for more on that!
    • Stacy has been documenting her recovery on her Instagram Stories, if you want more!
    • Now Sarah is in crunch time on her manuscript for Paleo Principles! She's just about to turn it in and is working really hard!
    • She still has a few recipes and all the meal plans left to do. And those are difficult for her!
    • How are they managing through this chaos and how can you support yourself too?
      • Stacy starts every morning with a Vital Proteins Veggie Blend Smoothie (created by Sarah!) instead of coffee.
      • Sarah has a non-negotiable bedtime for herself so that she preserves her sleep amounts (10:30 pm for her).
      • Sarah also never skips her workouts because they fill her with energy.
      • Stacy actively keeps the "sugar monster" at bay. While it may seem like sugar will help you, it won't! Instead, she eats peanut butter and Licorice and Cinnamon tea with cream.
      • Sarah also substitutes her sugar cravings with healthier options. She often goes to fruit, like frozen grapes or mangoes.
      • Sarah also goes for 85% or more dark chocolate. This will satisfy her sugar craving, but she's careful. If she indulges in a "real" treat, then the 85% chocolate will seem bitter and not satisfying by comparison.
      • Sarah also ups her protein content of her meals to keep her eating habits in check.
      • Sarah makes sure she has great quality time with her family every day. She makes sure she is present for these moments as well. When she returns to work after this family time, she's recharged.
      • Stacy does as well, but she focuses on touching and physical closeness as well. This goes for animals as well!
      • Stacy is learning to accept situations as they are and stop trying to control the uncontrollable. Do what you can to change things for the positive, but recognize where your powers end. Hey, there's a reason every culture has a version of the Serenity Prayer!
    • We hope you found inspiration in our strategies. Share what works for you with us!
    • Oh and because it is Wesley's birthday on Saturday, May 6th, Stacy has been paleo for 7 years! She hasn't done many things longer than that, so I guess this might be here to stay!
