Today, I am blessed to have Robb Wolf, a former research biochemist and the 2X New York Times/WSJ Best Selling author of The Paleo Solution and Wired To Eat. Robb has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world via his top ranked iTunes podcast, books and seminars.

Robb has functioned as a review editor for the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism (Biomed Central) and as a consultant for the Naval Special Warfare Resiliency program. He serves on the board of Directors/Advisors for: Specialty Health Inc, The Chickasaw Nation’s “Unconquered Life” initiative and a number of innovative start ups with a focus on health and sustainability.

Robb holds a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and is a former California State Powerlifting Champion (565 lb. Squat, 345 lb. Bench, 565 lb. Dead Lift) and a 6-0 amateur kickboxer. Wolf has provided seminars in nutrition and strength & conditioning to a number of entities including NASA, Naval Special Warfare, the Canadian Light Infantry and the United States Marine Corps.

In this episode, Robb Wolf talks about what inspired him to get started in the health space and the inspiration behind his three best-selling books. If you’re having difficulty adjusting to a keto lifestyle, Robb explains what could be happening. First and foremost, you need to make sure your electrolytes are up to par; that’s why Robb created LMNT, an electrolyte drink mix with everything you need. Tune in as we chat about the 7-day carb test, genius chip scientists, and the benefits of time-restricted eating.

[00:40] How Robb Wolf Started On His Health Journey and Writing Three Books

  • Robb’s mom had a lot of health problems. He had this sneaky suspicion that better food and exercise could lead to better outcomes.
  • So, Robb was interested in health at an early age.
  • He was a California State powerlifting champion and got into Thai boxing and jujitsu pretty early on.
  • It led to an undergrad in biochemistry, and then he was looking at either medical school or the research track.
  • In college, Robb was experimenting with his diet. He was tinkering with a low-fat, high-carb vegan diet. Robb ended up making himself very sick.
  • On his vegan diet, Robb was on a blood sugar roller coaster all the time, he had all these gut issues, and his depression was in pretty rough shape.
  • Eventually, he changed over to a paleo diet, and it saved his life.

[08:30] Spoiler Alert: Not Everyone Knows What They Are Talking About on The Internet

  • If you’re new to eating a raw diet or keto, you need to know the basics.
  • Paleo, keto, and carnivore all revolve around protein.
  • Providing nuance can be confusing when starting a new lifestyle.
  • It’s valuable to look at a variety of different people when finding advice on the internet.
  • Learn from people who have had success in their lifestyle and are flexible.
  • Remember, when starting a new lifestyle, it should be simple.

[14:45] Are You Having A Hard Time With Keto? Robb Wolf Explains Why

  • A lot of the problems that people experience is just inadequate sodium intake.
  • If you keep your electrolytes up, you can often subside cravings.
  • Keto can be a train wreck if you are a high-intensity athlete.
  • On hard training days, you may or may remain in ketosis despite eating 200 grams of carbohydrate per day.

[19:40] It’s Critical To Keep Your Electrolytes Up To Help With Sugar Cravings

  • You need adequate sodium. Otherwise, you may suffer from lethargy and fatigue.
  • If you are fairly active and live in a hot, humid environment, your base level of sodium intake needs to be higher than what you probably think.
  • If you’re eating a minimally processed diet, then a lot of your food doesn’t come with salt.
  • You need to add salt to your diet or make sure salt is included in your foods.
  • If you have an electrolyte imbalance, it can feel like you’re hungover.

[22:35] Drink LMNT: A Tasty Electrolyte Drink Mix With Everything You Need

  • They are perfectly suited to folks following a keto, low-carb, or paleo diet.
  • The mixes contain an ideal ratio:
    • 1000 mg sodium
    • 200 mg potassium
    • 60 mg magnesium

[27:15] Are You Overdoing It With Electrolytes? Here’s What You Need To Know

  • The first and most common thing if people really overdo electrolytes is disaster pants.
  • If you’re attached to the bathroom, then you might be overdoing it on electrolytes.
  • The Japanese culture has traditionally consumed ten to fifteen grams of sodium per day as part of their diet.
  • The average intake in the United States is recommended to be below two grams of sodium.
  • Sodium isn’t a potentially dangerous element to the diet.
  • Overall, keto reduces blood pressure in most people, and fasting reduces blood pressure in everyone.

[30:55] Scientists Masterfully Crafted Chips To Make Them Hyperpalatable

  • There's this new product called the Dorito Roulette. All of the Doritos are hot, but they vary in heat.
  • Some of them are mildly hot, medium, and then one random chip that will burn your face off hot.
  • The scientists understand palate fatigue and novelty at a super high level.
  • How do you get people to eat more food? Well, you need some sort of randomness of exposure. Also, you need an anticipated but unpredictable, intense experience.
  • Smart scientists understand how the brain works, and they're using it against us to make a big profit.

[36:30] Robb Wolf Talks About His 7-Day Carb Test

[41:55] Should You Try Time-Restricted Eating? What Are The Benefits?

  • Time-restricted eating can be a wonderful tool for inducing calorie control.
  • Some people will respond well to eating anything between 10 am and 5 pm. Eventually, they’ll start to get healthier and make better food choices.
  • We all know that somebody who exercises and eats healthy is shockingly healthier than an obese sedentary individual.
  • Robb is not sold that a lean and healthy individual can gain a lot of benefits from fasting.
