Proteinaholic Rebuttal

Proteinaholic Rebuttal
Howard, I applaud you for co-authoring the book Proteinaholic and approaching the Super Human Radio interview with a combination of open-mindedness, thoughtfulness, and skepticism. You were a joy to listen to and I believe that we need more individuals such as yourself promoting the diversity of thought that Proteinaholic brings to light. While the bulk of this letter addresses certain topics that we do not see eye-to-eye on, I want to start by highlighting the numerous points of agreement that were brought up throughout the hour interview. The irony with these, of course, is that they have little to nothing to do with protein. 1)      All humans in the world are the same species and we will therefore have a fundamental dietary pattern that best suits our needs. At the core, this will be a whole-foods, plant-based diet without all the processed crap (can I say that on here?). 2)      The...

Physical activity and death – a potpourri of associations

Physical activity and death – a potpourri of associations
In the U.S., it has been estimated that one-third of adults spend at least 9 waking hours and over two-thirds spend more than 7.5 waking hours being sedentary (SED) every day. In addition, more than two-thirds of adults achieve zero minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). Interestingly enough, one-third of adults are obese and two-thirds are overweight. Coincidence? Not according to research suggesting that both increasing MVPA and reducing SED are required to substantially reduce the risk of obesity. More recently, a wave of publications has appeared in several journals that continue to support the what-should-be-obvious-by-now association between SED and/or MVPA and health. Although all these studies are epidemiological and thus prevent causal inferences, they still provide interesting information and identify associations for future direct testing. First up is the work of Maddison et al from University of Auckland, who sought to characterize typical activity profiles of Americans and determine their...

Lifelong effects of ketogenic diet in mice

Lifelong effects of ketogenic diet in mice
Ketogenic diets (KD) have become a growing interest for weight loss, exercise performance, and health. They are most well-known for their use in the treatment of refractory epilepsy, particularly in children, which dates back to at least the 1920s and is more effective than most epileptic drug treatments. However, there is a concern over and lack of knowledge regarding long-term effects. For instance, a more serious side-effect of KD is growth retardation possibly owed to the very low protein intake, which may resolve via catch-up growth upon diet discontinuation. Given the methodological problems of conducting studies lasting years or decades, it is not that surprising that no research exists regarding long-term effects. However, this knowledge is of clinical importance. Thus, to help further our understanding of the physiologic consequences of KD on systemic health, longevity, and metabolism, Douris et al from the Harvard Medical School compared both the short-term effects of...

What Kind of Cake Will You Choose for Your 100th Birthday?

6972134 SI said something in jest yesterday at the gym that made me take pause and think about how true it really is. I was talking to my good friend and fellow radio and TV personality Tony Vanetti and said to him that I hoped I would be there when he blows out the candles on his 100th year birthday cake because that would mean I would be 117.

I thought about this the rest of the day. We all know that surrounding ourselves with likeminded people when you have a goal is critical to success. And we also know that once someone believes they can do something they usually can do it. And we usually believe we can do something once someone else has done it. Look at how world records are broken! This is the human phenomenon of raising the bar.
