Peak Human - Unbiased Nutrition Info for Optimum Health, Fitness & Living

Jul 5, 2018

Today we have the mighty Dom D’Agostino who is at the forefront of the science behind why low carb diets work and specifically the more extreme form of a low carb diet you’ve probably heard a lot about lately - the ketogenic diet. It can be used therapeutically with the help of doctors to treat and reverse diseases like type 2 diabetes and epilepsy. It can also help the everyday person lose a lot of weight if done correctly. It’s not a fad diet - although it currently could be considered a fad just because technically it is very popular right now and might get less popular in the future. It is however quite the opposite as our ancestors have likely been eating in a similar way for millions of years depending on the geography, time of year, and current world climate.

I’d like to apologize for not checking the audio while I recorded - there was a effects knob on my old school mixer I use that got turned on and it put some sort of concert hall echo effect on my voice.

The indiegogo campaign is going well - thanks for the support. Again - I’m not trying to make any money off this film (and I surely won’t), just break even and fund the rest of post production. So watch the trailer and preorder copy to support us.
