Podcast 021: Paleo and Primal Blueprint with Tim Popp
Tim Popp joins us to discuss lifestyle changes that he has made incorporating both Paleo diet and the Primal Blueprint into his life. The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson is a great book about reprogramming your genes through diet. Tim shares with us some of the research and information about the benefits of taking out grains and sugar in your diet and finding the diet that works best for you.
He also discussed one of the side effects of eating grains is the phytic acid that is in grains. This binds up the vitamin and minerals in our body and limits all the physiological reactions.
Another important fact that he shared is the importance of good fats for energy. We are conditioned to think that a larger percentage of carbs are needed for energy but fat is a more efficient energy source for our body. Large amounts of carbs and starches push insulin production that triggers your body to store fat. Blood sugar regulation is such an important part of health, wellness, and appetite.
Thanks so much Tim for sharing all your information with us.
