Everything essential in there. Good work.
🌹 I was able to reverse my Tmau (body odor ) and hormonal Acne naturally with gluten free diet and herbal home remedies from DR.UWENBOHERBLHOME youtube page.. my foul odor is completely gone, I can now work around people. I suggest everyone #DRUWENBOHERBALHOME.❤❤❤
Doesn't kombucha have too much sugar?
I do love this but I really wish the part about alcohol wasn't so easy breezy – alcohol is literal poison that has no benefits other than pleasure, which is fine, but one alcohol free day a week is dodgy territory in my opinion. It should be if anything one alcohol day per week or no alcohol at all. Alcohol disrupts sleep (William Porter's book covers this) even one glass. It is also full of sugar, as well as being highly addictive. The alcohol free movement is gaining such momentum as people understand how bad it is for you, and society as a whole. I am three years alcohol free and I feel the best I have ever felt in my life, I feel my soul is much happier.
One topic that I've never heard dr Spector talk about is the amount of daily proteins to get through our diet. While the FDA recommends 0,8g/Kg body weight, experts are now recommending twice as much, based on recent studies on how to avoid sarcopenia. A low daily protein consumption, and/or lack of resistance training, has been proven to lead almost certainty to a significant loss of muscle mass, regardless of the general health status and body weight. Without a sufficient daily protein intake AND resistance training, weight loss is going to be in average 70% fat, and 30% lean mass, which is very bad news even if you manage to get your weight under control. As much as I appreciate what you guys are doing at Zoe, I suspect that the diet and lifestyle that dr Spector is advocating, with low consumption of meat and fish, and aerobic exercise instead of resistance training, may not be an ideal one, when it comes to maintaining an ideal level of strength and lean mass.
The most sensible and enjoyable talk I've heard in a long time; as the owner of Italian restaurants, I smiled when you talked about the warm bread in restaurants, we make our own and customers can't resist it. Thanks Tim and Johnathan.
Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
I love meat and I love cheese for how much flavour a tiny amount adds to meals.
Not terribly impressed here. How about antibodies attacking the thyroid? Mine have gone up and I have been told No Gluten! The numbers are determined by my blood tests, but no other symptoms are evident. I joined the ZOE study and now wonder about that decision. This discussion seems one sided and condescending.
Hi, and very many thanks to everyone at ZOE for a thought-provoking and interesting 2022. Looking forward to seeing what 2023 has to offer. I've been enjoying many of the Podcasts and two of Tim's excellent books, and am now on day 75 of my reporting for the IF study. I discovered fasting via Dr Jason Fung's work back in Feb 2020, so have been a convert for a while, and it is part of my day to day lifestyle now – and for evermore!
I wanted to throw a couple of thoughts into the mix, possibly for ZOE's expert contemplation. I took part in a wonderful online course on fascia, pain and ageing a couple of months ago with the expert Tom Myers (of Anatomy Trains fame). One of many things I found fascinating is that apparently the fascia system has its own microbiome, about which pretty well nothing is really known yet. Given that the fascia is everywhere in the body, and is the richest source of information the brain has, with its own communication system, could there be any linkup with the gut microbiome, with combined impacts on our health?
Secondly, through my work as a Pilates instructor for nearly 20 years, I have become increasingly convinced of the health impact of how people breath – how poor breathing can damage health and how optimal breathing can promote good health. There are widespread effects on blood chemistry, hormones, etc. Could this also interact with the effects of diet and gut microbiome?
You must be sponsored by Coca-Cola and kelloggs. Plants are not human food. We can not live on them, and we are much healthier when we don't eat any. Roots and decorative plants are starvation foods. And humans can easily go a month or 2 without eating anything. If you are planning on hibernating for the winter, by all means, fatten up in the fall with squash and berries. But in a prosperous industrialized country, there is no reason for people to eat plants of any kind. Humans eating plants, is destroying their health and the environment.
I have the book – and have even read it! However, it was great to have this chapter narrated by Tim, thank you. I am on the Zoe programme (daughter joining in March), and I am finding it fascinating. Love cooking and experimenting with food and this has given me the impetus to do more of it.
I have nut sensitivity and pulses give me ibs . I feel better for good quality meat. But I’m mostly veg based . But got sick going vegan. Especially as most protein vegan wise comes from nuts. Plus fake vegan milk and cheese is rank
Yes to green cabbage, pointed, sweet heart and savoy. If you have to watch your weight it can be used instead of pasta or rice.
Thanks. Pinhead oats looks like a cheaper alternaive tp steel cut oats – probably worth paying the extra for organic. I don't like the taste boilng gives milk so I make my porrige with water, after it's cooled I add a little double cream.
When you put something in your child’s mouth, ask yourself if you would feed this to your dog…. If not, then why would you give this to your child?
Xxxx Whooohooo.. Where can i büy the book??? Up a big mountain in Turkiye…A ha ha ha happy new year to us all…lol.
I have been contributing to to ZOE app for over 2 years…. this sounds like an advert.. and I will stop watching.. sorry!
It really is difficult to take Tim's work seriously as an evidence based scientist when he wilfully ignores the science on things like statins. Wise up Tim. You've already proved your earlier self wrong on some many things why do you continue to believe that the pharmaceutical industry is there to make us better when you've just woke up to what the food industry does to us?
Interesting…I have less of a glucose spike with bread. Most spike with potato, rice, and pasta…in that order. Also, I discovered that the gluten-free French buckwheat crepe “galette” gives me little to no spike. Surprisingly, fruits are my nemesis. Even berries, which I love. 😢
My philosophy on food is 'start with a knife' – if you are having to chop ingredients up then you are on the right lines.
If you start with chapter 11, I guess you might as well throw in the towel, eh?
But seriously though, why did professor Spector abandon the vegan diet when people like Dr Michael Greger, Dr Joel Khan, Dr John McCullough, Dr Rick Esselstyn and others have shown through the meta evidence, that it is the most beneficial diet of all?
P.S. Better to gain insight than weight, right? 😀
How much money did Tony Blair give you?
Bought "Spoon Fed", and bought the core Zoe product, but not buying this book. Very interested to listen to this; liking, but not buying! 😘
I agree kombucha is a good alcohol substitue (can't stand Fanta).
Loved hearing an audio book chapter. Many thanks.
All OK for ," pots of Dosh"boringly told , he didnt mention vast amounts of Glysophates( Round up) on lots of farm greens, even organic, are swamped in it , especially Oats, not Removable by washing.. B12 very hard to obtain with out Red meats chicken or fish, my zoe predict ?? Eat like your mum or dad did , less is more ..
Thank you Johnathan, Tim & Team ZOE for another great podcast : and the pertinent seasonal prompt after all the “festive” binge eating.
Back to a sensible diet tomorrow 😉
Looking forward to all the exciting discoveries to be unearthed by Sarah Berry and her team in 2023.
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL.
Brilliant Thankyou Zoe x good start and advice for now and moving into 2023
When is the Zoe program likely to be available in Australia/New Zealand if ever? You are so extremely slow in rolling it out everywhere, no point publicising it if the waiting list is tens of thousands long (as noted in your website) and you are so very slow to making it become available outside the UK. I have used US based genetic health programs with no issues, and they have prompt return with reports. Not at all inspiring, you need to lift your game to be a prominent player in this field.
if I grind flax seeds and add to brown rice with vinegar will it dull the sugar spike as with all carbs bread mix and the like
