It seems like everywhere you turn, you hear someone talking about the ketogenic diet.

Some people claim that the ketogenic has helped them lose 100 pounds in a year, that it is a cure for cancer, or that it can help treat Alzheimer's disease. Others claim that keto is dangerous and unproven.

So which is true?

In episode 5 of Primal Example short sodes, Erica and Joe break down what THE RESEARCH shows about ketogenic diets, debunk some common keto myths, and share their personal experiences with ketogenic diets.

According to recent surveys, US adults are having less sex than ever. Nearly 1/4 people claim that they haven't had sex AT ALL in the past year.

With sex frequency (with a loving partner) being a predictor of healthspan and lifespan, it's important that we understand the factors at play here.

The most shocking part of this research is that MOST of the adults that reported not having sex in the last year were 20 something year old men.

In this bonus episode of The Primal Example Podcast, we discuss some of the reasons why people are having less sex than ever.

Did you know that being on hormonal birth control can alter who you are attracted to?

Interestingly, hormonal birth control can alter your attractions and nudge you to be more attracted to people with similar genetics to you. From an ancestral health perspective, this is not good.

From a survival point a view, we are naturally designed to be attracted to people with genes that are more different from us in order to diversify the genes of our offspring and increase the resilience to sickness of our children.

Hormonal contraceptives can also leave you more prone to depression, low libido, anxiety, and weight gain by altering the delicate balance of your hormones (namely estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone).

In episode 75 of the Primal Example Podcast, Joe interviews reproductive health practitioner Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, author of The Fifth Vital Sign.

Lisa shares:

  • Why the menstrual cycle should be viewed as the fifth vital sign
  • Warning signs of an unhealthy period
  • The long term effects of hormonal birth control
  • How hormonal birth control alters our sexual attractions
  • The top foods to increase fertility
  • Foods to avoid to increase fertility

While we at Primal Example have a reputation of being vegan haters, that is far from the truth. While we don't feel like veganism promotes optimal health for most people, we recognize that a properly formulated vegan diet can provide a myriad of health benefits.

While there are plenty of upsides to following a vegan diet, there are also some downsides.

In episode 4 of Primal Example Short Sodes, Joe & Erica discuss the upsides, downsides, and myths surrounding a vegan approach.

Enjoy!
