A few weeks ago as a new pet owner, I took my new puppy Charlie to the vet and inquired about the perfect diet for my new puppy.

“Almost all vets feed their pups Purina and other kibble,” my vet said.

“What about raw dog food? That’s what we’ve been giving her?” I replied.

Well, raw dog food can contain bacteria that can be an issue.” said the vet.

And so we switched to a high quality kibble.

Within just a few days we noticed a profound difference in our Charlie girl.

  • She was tired.
  • She was whining.
  • She wanted to go outside 6 times an hour to go to the bathroom.

She just wasn’t herself.

So to get to the bottom of whether or not raw dog food really was dangerous or beneficial, asked the founder of Raw Dog Food, DeDe Murcer Moffett, to break it down for us.

Turns out, there is TONS of controversy when it comes to how to nourish our puppies and I think you’ll be surprised (and definitely entertained) by what she has to say.

Here are some of the awesome topics we cover:

  • Why puppies began eating kibble (this will surprise you!)
  • Why it is clear that dogs eat meat
  • The one macronutrient that most dogs DON’T need (but most dog food is made from!)
  • Why many vets recommend kibble
  • The amino acid that dogs need to thrive
  • Whether or not we need to be worried about bacteria on a raw food diet
  • Why mixing raw and kibble is not a great idea (whoops!)
  • How to find a truly holistic vet
  • How DeDe knows her pups diet is supporting her gut health
  • How to test your puppy’s microbiome
  • The famous study that shows us exactly what our pets need to thrive
  • How to find high quality, properly sourced raw food
  • Why organic isn’t always the best way to go
  • How to cut your raw dog food costs dramatically
  • How to get your vet on board with raw dog food
  • Dogs that should not consume raw dog food
  • How to get her raw dog food feeding guide for free
  • And much more!

The ketogenic diet can be a powerful tool for weight loss, craving reduction, brain health and perhaps even longevity.

For example - did you know that consuming the wrong type of oils has been shown to cause inflammation in your body for over 100 days after!?

It sounds crazy but it’s true, so if you want all the juicy details on how to reduce inflammation, optimize hormone levels (listen up, keto ladies!), detox and how to avoid the #1 reason people fail on the keto diet, tune in to this week’s incredible podcast with the founder of Keto Kamp, Ben Azadi!

Here are a few of the other gems you’re in for...

  • What you need to know if you don’t have a gallbladder
  • The most inflammatory keto approved foods in the world
  • The TRUE cost of french fries (this will shock you!)

  • How to know if dairy works for you
  • The best fats for keto
  • How to avoid the keto flu
  • 3 ways to break through a keto plateau
  • How you should measure success with keto (spoiler alert: it’s NOT the scale)

Fasting is easily one of the most powerful dietary strategies we have today.

Research has shown it can improve weight loss, detoxification, brain function, and promote longevity. It’s also been shown to decrease side effects of chemotherapy, reduce the risk of cancer in animal models, and I’ve even noticed it improves my mood dramatically.

BUT, there are many things you need to know before you jump in if you want to succeed.

The longest fast on record, for example, was 382 days completed by a Scottich man named Angus Barbieri. He lived on soda, vitamins, water, and coffee and lost 276 pounds.

Obviously, that is not where you begin.

(He was monitored by his doctors the whole time - do NOT try this at home!)

In this podcast, you'll learn how you can still eat everyday and reap the benefits with the advanced (yet practical) strategies from best selling author, Siim Land.

Here are some of the gems you’re in for...

The many benefits of fasting
How you can lose fat without eating less
How to age more gracefully
How to trigger more autophagy
How to know when to stop fasting
The best type of coffee to consume while fasting
A perfect beverage to kick autophagy into overdrive
The difference between time restricted eating and fasting
What you need to take on 3-5 day fasts
Why he’s not a fan of long term fasts
The perfect food to break a fast
The best time to fast during the day
Strategies for improved sleep
Where to begin!
And so much more.
