I usually make a point of reading, watching or listening to everything from Dr Paul Mason as he has an enviable knack of explaining metabolism in a way that non – experts can understand. However, I had avoided this podcast for a while as it has been unfortunately labelled as an ‘ultimate carnivore’ podcast, which for me, is a little too extreme as a dietary approach. I certainly won’t judge a book by its cover or podcast by its title in future as this interview is packed with really useful information including: understanding blood test results, what an elevated ALT means, why HBA1c is a perfect measure of metabolic health, what LDL to look for, osteoporosis and calcium, vegan diets, animal welfare…the list goes on and on for an info packed hour and twenty four minutes with only a tiny reference to the carnivore diet.
I would much rather watch this Wizard Of Oz this Christmas.
