My Notes: Two caveats: (1) Some language from the host (if children are around) and (2) I’m not into the few spiritualism aspects discussed in the beginning; I believe prayer (to the true and living God), bible reading, and biblical meditation can be far more impacting when it comes to long-term changes, than trying to be ‘one with the universe, etc.’ However, I still believe that the overall gist of this interview is incredibly beneficial from a scientific and overall health-improvement point of view. There is a lot of very interesting, detailed information on things like: alpha fetoprotein, the wide benefits of ketones/being in ketosis, parasympathetic tone & heart rate variability, the carnivore diet, etc. BTW, contrary to the title, he isn’t supporting starvation, but rather fasting (think ‘starving yourself of unnecessary food or amounts of food’ rather than starving yourself of the food, or amounts of food, that will actually benefit you in both the short and long-term).
