  1. Thanks for another great interview!
    I've watched and listened to several of Dr. DiNicolantonio's interviews, but this one's got lots of exclusive information not covered from other podcasts. Just superb!

  2. Mike.. don't you carry a high quality fish oil? I think I should try some 🤔

  3. Love you’re channel!

  4. My doctor told me less salt because I got a kidney stone . No idea who to listen to

  5. Wow this interview was really packed with awesome info.. really gonna have to look into his books and try to digest all this information

  6. thanks Guys, Brilliant info, great discussion, now have to buy book – also a big fan of Dr. Cate Shanahan …

  7. 30 minutes in had to take a brain absorption break!

  8. Thanks to both of you for this informative vid. I’ll be increasing my fish oil to 3grams of Epa/Dha immediately! 💯🔥

  9. Does cake, cookies, brownies, ice cream and pizza make me fat?…

  10. This was one of my favorite Interviews

  11. Great interview! Learned so much. I’m excited to implement some of the strategies. I take collagen everyday but I’m. It sure what brand would have the least contaminants. I would like to know what brand of collagen Dr. James takes. Thanks! Looking forward to more amazing content. Great job Mike!

  12. Grateful for the content but too complicated for the layman and now i'm scared everything is going to kill me!!

  13. Is MCT bad for a fatty liver?

  14. Why would you try selling keto bars with 12 carbs!

  15. Thanks for the great long-form intelligent interview.. High resolution information.. I'll be watching for the new book

  16. Oh my goodness!! This dude knows his stuff!👍 and not that i know he knows lol….🤣 it all sounds like 1.21 jiggawatts into the flux capacitor at 88 miles/hr

  17. Given the advocacy of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, what about light or extra light olive oil?
    Does Extra Light Olive Oil have the same benefits as the Extra Virgin Olive Oil?
    My experience is the smoking point for extra virgin olive oil is a lower temperature than the extra light olive oil and thus with extra light olive oil I find my kitchen more pleasent due to less smoke.

  18. What about algae oil? Starting to see this more in stores and curious if there is any research behind it for potential health benefits.

  19. So full of knowledge, thank you so much

  20. Wow, what a talk. Inspired me to buy the book. Lots of great info. Thanks again Mike for presenting this to us and Dr James thanks for sharing. Cheers 🙂

  21. Great interview !! one I am rewinding several times, so much information!

  22. Fantastic information a genius. I have your book with Dr Fug " Longevity solution " but didn't know you before! Then I heard you talking about your book _ which I have!!!! I only knew Jason Fung. Thank you for this incredible information, a pity you have no book on diabetes . I use insulin but am slim.

  23. I thought salt was neutral not acidic?

  24. I can't get past the crooked lamp shade…. Great discussion though!

  25. Wow very knowledgeable., thanks for sharing .

  26. Also, talking about paleo as if you were there saying things like we used to follow animals to salt licks is interesting theorizing, but it also illustrates one of the biggest issues with the paleo community, they make crap up as they go.

  27. The grass fed vs grass fed grass finished beef argument is weak at best. Its marketing mostly, the nutrition difference is not significant enough to warrant the additional cost. Benefits can easily be surpassed with quality lower priced beef and a couple affordable supplements and/or including other foods in your diet, that you should be consuming anyway that supply omega 3, A, E, K etc. This is the real debate that I think should be had.

  28. Great info – he really likes the x virg. Olive oil. – point taken. (so does Dr. Guindry)

  29. So often do take 3-4 grams omega-3 / krill oil?
