[Podcast] Ep33: “Rich Food, Poor Food” pt1

“Micronutrient defficiency is the most widespread and dangerous health condition of the 21st century.” – Jayson Calton

In this episode I have a fantastic conversation with micronutrient specialists Mira & Jayson Calton who are also the authors of my #1 book recommendation “Rich Food, Poor Food.” We had a marathon 2 hour conversation about the science of nutrition, and specifically how important micronutrients are to our overall health. We talk about:

Macronutrients (fats, carbs, proteins)

Micronutrients (essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids)

The toxicity in our current food supply and why were are micronutrient defficient (and yes, you are too)

Why the food pyramid is backwards and how it strips us of micronutrients

How there is a micronutrient solution to whatever health ailment you are suffering

How much the science of nutrition has changed in the last 20 years

What specifics things are micronutrient depleters

Why calories in vs. calories out just doesn’t work but why calories still matter

The pitfalls of thinking “calories don’t matter”

The science behind high fat, low carb diets and how to do them properly
