Phenomenal Fiber with Dr. Pamela Fergusson, RD, Ph.D

Welcome back to Fiber February, where we’re talking all things fiber, gut health, and epic dumps to spread awareness about the importance of this nutrient, of which deficiency is a widespread epidemic. This week we’re thrilled to bring Pamela Fergusson to the podcast to talk about fiber and plant-based eating from the perspective of a true plant-based nutrition expert. Pamela is a registered dietician and holds a PhD in nutrition, and lives and works with clients in Toronto, Canada. She’s also worked in the field of nutrition all over the planet, including UNICEF and the World Food Program. She’s a mom of 4, an athlete, and fellow fiber fanatic.

We have a great conversation ranging from her background in nutrition, the role of fiber in the diet and where to get it, can you have too much fiber, how to manage bloating and gas when transitioning to a plant-based diet, and more. We’re confident you’ll learn a thing or two about fabulous fiber.

Nutrition Research 101 with Micaela Karlsen

100 EPISODES! THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF THIS CRAZY JOURNEY!

Because TFF is so dedicated to science and approaching nutrition and lifestyle through an evidence-based lens, understanding and utilizing scientific research is absolutely essential to what we do. It’s also critical for maintaining reason and the anti-dogmatic and non judgmental perspective we believe in, and is integral to many of our episodes. We understand not everyone has training in things like statistics, study design, and interpreting research findings to make educated and practical decisions about health and nutrition, so we felt compelled to bring on an expert to help aid you in understanding this stuff better. It is our responsibility and duty as science educators to make a more science literate community. We want you to become badass #science warriors.

Today’s guest is perfect to aid us in this mission. Micaela Karlsen is in the final stages of her PhD at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, specializing in Nutritional Epidemiology. She holds a Masters of Science and Public Health from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a Bachelors in Psychology from Cornell.

Damn.

Micaela also co-launched the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, which is now known as the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, contributing to the creation and launch of the Plant-Based Nutrition Certification Course that is part of the center. She serves on the Expert and Medical Advisory Board for the International Plant-Based Nutrition Healthcare Conference and the board of directors for the Plant Based Prevention of Disease Conference. To top it all off, she founded the exceptional site plantbasedresearch.org, an online database of peer-reviewed, scientific research and other resources relevant to plant-based nutrition, as well as Habits of Health.

She recently wrote a book titled “A Plant Based Life” which is a strategic guide to practical plant-based living. Most importantly, however, she just finished teaching Jackson’s latest graduate school course, called “Nutrition Practice for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention”. We’re seriously honored to have her on the show.

Think of this episode as an undergraduate level lecture on the basics of scientific research as it applies to nutrition science. We discuss study design, pros and cons of meta-analysis, the process of reading and analyzing research papers, wading through and having a critical eye about health news in the media, and more. It will answer questions many of you have sent in regarding things like what makes a good study? What is a p-value? It was awesome, and will likely teach you a thing or two about thinking more like a scientist and help you as you learn more about nutrition.

Let us know what you think about the episode, and if you’d like us to bring Micaela back on for round 2, and go into more depth or go through more specific studies. We think this is a super important topic to share because it’s such a critical component to science literacy and understanding how to make conclusions about diet and lifestyle. Thanks for listening!

Slip Into Our Genes: Analyzing Ancestry and Genetic Polymorphisms

Listen on Google Play MusicWe’ve both been big fans of Dr. Rhonda Patrick’s nutrition science podcast, Found My Fitness, for some time now. She’s insanely intelligent, and brings on guests from all spectrums of science. One of Dr. Patrick’s fascinations is genetics, and how specific variations within individual genes affect our disease risk and nutrient absorption and how that affects our healthspan, known as genetic polymorphisms. Of course, only about 20% of our general chronic disease risk is due to genes alone, and the other 80% or so is due to lifestyle (so things like diet, relationships, environment, and exercise). However, we believe it’s important to learn about and experiment on ourselves, and do whatever we possibly can to reduce the risk of dying from otherwise preventable means. And thrive as humans, maximizing our potential.

So, in true TFF fashion, we nerded out.

A few weeks ago, we each decided to take the basic 23andme ancestry test (pay $100, spit in a tube, send tube to lab for analysis) to sequence our genome. You can then take the raw genetic data and put it through a special software created by Dr. Patrick that looks at the various polymorphisms of relevance. We thought it would be a cool episode to discuss each of our results and what they mean, and just like we love to do, zoom in to zoom out. We discuss each of our ancestry data and the results of our genetic polymorphism testing in detail, and then have a more general conversation about how to interpret these findings.

We aren’t geneticists or doctors, and aren’t affiliated or sponsored by 23andMe or Dr. Patrick. We just think science is cool and learning about ourselves in a different way is also cool. Cool?

Hope you guys and gals enjoy the show!

-Jackson and Aaron

How To Survive Thanksgiving

Listen on Google Play MusicLet’s face it. Thanksgiving is a pretty tough holiday to navigate for us on vegan/plant-based diets. With family coming together and often being the outsider when it comes to diet on the holiday focused on gluttony of eating animal products and other unhealthy foods, it can be intimidating to maintain your routine and confidence. It doesn’t have to be this way, though. This week on the show, we discuss our best tips for overcoming mainly the social struggles of Thanksgiving for the plant-based person, but also touch on the food side and our advice for navigating the Thanksgiving holiday (but it applies to any holiday as well for the most part).

As controversial and gluttonous as Thanksgiving can be, it’s incredibly important to remember the underlying theme, which is to be grateful and thankful for the amazing things we have. To spend time with family and break bread together, sharing stories and laughter. We are grateful for you. For your support, your time, and your shared passion to make the world a better place, so thank you! Keep doing your thing, set an example, and be chill this Thursday. Happy holidays, y’all!

-Aaron and Jackson

The Cycling-Fueled Spiritual Quest of Jackson Foster

Listen on Google Play MusicJackson Foster is on an epic cycling-fueled spiritual quest from Alaska to South America (and beyond). After taking the plunge as a full on minimalist digital nomad, Jackson has simplified his life to the bare necessities — carrying everything he owns and needs on his touring bike, including his entire vlogging setup. Yep, he’s daily vlogging his experience from the road, sharing the insane beauty of his journey and the people he’s met. As a result, he’s had a lot of time to think and reflect, and has a lot of amazing stories and spiritual philosophies to share.

I caught up with Jackson for the second time on this show while he was in Oregon, on his way south from Alaska. We talk about his bike setup, crazy stories from the road, what he’s been eating to fuel himself, and then get deep on greater philosophy and spirituality as it relates to things like “do epic shit” and lifestyle design. It was one of the best conversations we’ve had, so really excited to share it with you. Be sure to follow Jackson’s adventure over on his YouTube channel, Plantriotic.

-Jackson


I will be in Los Angeles for the upcoming Circle V event and co-hosting a run/yoga/food/nutrition talk in Santa Monica/Venice this Sunday, November 19th. Hope to see you there!

Cycling 101: Gear, Mechanics, Training, and Nutrition

Listen on Google Play MusicI have been riding road bikes for half of my time on this planet. It’s so deeply intertwined with my day to day life that it’s almost second nature to me. It has brought so many amazing experiences and relationships from riding the highest paved road in North America to riding with my friends Gruff and Ian in the Alps, and I want you to experience that sensation in your own life. We recently did a podcast about exercise and redefining our relationship to it, and discussed how we want to go more in depth on specific sports that we have expertise with. From the gear to nutrition, I felt like it would be helpful for everyone interested in the sport of cycling to hear more specifics on how to do it – a sort of Cycling 101 class. For beginners and experts alike, there’s a ton of great information in here, as well as a special surprise from Vegan Athletic Apparel ;). I covered a lot, and hope it’s helpful! If I missed anything you were hoping I’d cover, please shoot me an email to tfflifestyle@gmail.com, and be sure to hop in the Thought For Food Club Facebook group to continue the conversation.

Aaron is taking the rest of November off of the podcast to recharge, disconnect, and focus on his family, so the podcast will be much more boring. He’ll be back though!

Interested in the oh-so sexy and functionally high-quality Vegan Athletic Apparel? They have offered up listeners of this podcast 15% off your order through December 31st by using discount code “TFF” at checkout. Their new winter line is absolutely EPIC, and I can confidently say that this is my favorite kit I’ve worn. Snatch up this deal, folks. Visit www.veganathleticapparel.com to learn more.

I will be in Los Angeles from November 17th-27th and will most likely be bringing my bike. If you’re in the area, let’s play bikes. I will also be at Circle V on the 18th so hope to see you there! 

Alrighty. Let’s go for a ride.

-Jackson

Paul Shapiro on the Status of Animal Welfare in 2017 and the Power of the Clean Meat Revolution



Listen on Google Play MusicThere exists a grand order of elite animal rights advocates that have quite literally been changing the game for how animals, from chickens to wolves, are treated in this world. Like the Justice League for animals, these plant-based superheroes often work behind the scenes on changing policy or technology, creating a powerful ripple effect that has improved the lives of billions of animals in recent years. You might have heard my conversation with Nathan Runkle, founder of Mercy For Animals, who is one of these heroes. And today, I’m beyond excited to bring another animal rights superhero to your ears, the one, the only, Paul Shapiro.  

Paul is the vice president of policy at the Humane Society of the United States, one of the organizations leading the way to a better future for animals through animal rescue, care, protection, and advocacy. Paul focuses on shifting the political landscape towards advancing animal welfare in this country. He began his career for animals in high school, becoming vegan after learning about the way industrially farmed animals were treated, and founded the animal advocacy organization Compassion Over Killing. While there, he took part in innumerable actions and campaigns to improve the lives of animals. In 2005, he started with the Humane Society of the US as head of farm animal protection, and was integral in reducing battery cages, gestation crates, and veal crates in a variety of settings and states. Paul has authored a forthcoming book on the clean meat movement coming out in January 2018, and is an inductee into the animal rights hall of fame. Hashtag legend.

Paul and I sat down for this conversation the evening before he delivered a powerful talk at TEDx Sun Valley on how we are better than how we treat animals. We talked about how his early days as an activist have led to the work he does now, the current state of animal welfare policy, effective altruism, and of course, clean meat technology and what that means for saving animals. It was incredibly inspiring to hang out with Paul and his girlfriend Toni Okamoto (who was also recently on the podcast!) in Idaho for a couple of days. I’m honored to call these two friends and to bring you their wisdom, and hope this conversation with Paul gives you the hope and energy to join us in improving the lives of animals. We must take action. We must make a difference. Go follow Paul on Twitter @PaulHShapiro and definitely be sure to stay tuned for the release of his upcoming book. If you’re a regular listener of the podcast, you probably think I sound like a broken record when it comes to my thoughts and feelings about plant-based and clean meat technologies, but honestly I can’t stress their importance and potential for changing the world enough.


Our friends over at Plant Positive Running have an awesome new cookbook out for anyone new to the plant-based lifestyle and specifically for endurance athletes and runners. They are generous enough to offer listeners of the pod a special discount. Visit plantpositiverunning.com/cookbook and use the code EPICDUMPS to receive 40% off! And to be clear, this isn’t a paid advertisement and we aren’t getting anything in return for this offer, just helping out our fellow plant-powered athletes up in northern Idaho spread the message of eating more plants. Check ’em out!

What’s The Deal With Fasting?



Listen on Google Play MusicIntermittent fasting. Water fasting. Time restricted eating. Juice cleanses. Many of us have heard about these things, often knocking them as fads or extreme ways of living. However, there seems to be a lot of buzz lately about the benefits of fasting. So what does the science say? Well, you’re in the right place.

After hearing about the evidence behind time restricted feeding or intermittent fasting on Dr. Rhonda Patrick’s podcast and elsewhere, Aaron decided to try it out for himself. Alongside a regular sauna routine combined with an overall healthy, whole foods plant-based diet, he has seen profound benefits. From sleep quality to endurance gains, we’ve both felt the positive effects of eating our food within a 9 or 10 hour window during the day. But how does this actually work? What’s happening metabolically and physiologically to stimulate these effects? In true TFF What’s The Deal fashion, we set off to find out.

It’s been quite some time since we recorded a WTD episode, and that’s due to the immense amount of research and time it requires. With Aaron’s new kid on the block, changing jobs and moving, along with Jackson’s travel and school schedule, we simply didn’t have a ton of time to focus on this. But it’s definitely worth the wait; we covered everything from how fasting can potentially prevent disease at the cellular level, to how we feel it should be implemented in a practical fashion in everyday life. We zoom in to zoom out, and discuss this through an objective and evidence-based approach, so we hope you learn something new! It’s a bit of a longer episode, so hang in there, take a break if needed, and enjoy.

-Jackson and Aaron

Optimizing Epic Dump Frequency, Lowering Resting Heart Rate With Diet, and More! | Q&A 010

 

Listen on Google Play MusicLet’s face it. We love answering questions. We don’t claim to know everything, but we’re obsessed with trying to parse out some truths in science, nutrition, exercise, and beyond. This is why we started this podcast. And Q&A’s have always been an integral goal to helping us help the world. So behold! Q&A #10. We have started getting more questions than we can answer at one time, so we apologize if yours didn’t make the cut. We really appreciate everyone that provided questions, and we hope we answered them without being too obnoxious. There’s a lot of great stuff in here, including:

  • best foods and practices for preventing and managing osteoporosis and arthritis
  • how many epic dumps per day is optimal, and what foods lead to the most epic of the dumps?
  • how to talk to young kids about plant-based lifestyles
  • how did we get into exercise?
  • lots more!

Any relevant information or links will be linked below. We hope this episode helps you in some way, and makes you think of other questions to ask! If you want to ask a question, leave a comment on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), in our Facebook group, or by sending us an email to tfflifestyle@gmail.com. Bathe yourself in knowledge, nerds.

Thank you for listening, now go eat some plants.

-Jackson and Aaron
