Dr. Will Cole joins the Decoding Superhuman podcast to discuss the problems with a vegetarian or vegan diet and how to get the benefits of a plant-based diet through being Ketotarian.
I spent my mid to late teens to my mid to late 20s being a vegan. It was the conventional vegan diet. It was higher carbohydrates, lower fat.So sprouted grains and soaked you know beans and lentils and legumes. That is by and large where I got my calories. It was better than the standard American diet. But just because something's better doesn't mean it's optimal. Over that time period. I slowly not overnight started seeing digestive issue is and inflammatory problems and fatigue.

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that.
