I assumed being interviewed for Ketogeek would entail talking mostly about ketogenic diets, but that was not the case at all. We mostly talked about more advanced fitness topics and how to interpret scientific literature (with concrete examples, don’t worry).
12:11 – How to understand a scientific paper
15:54 – Who are “Intermediatories”, “synthesizers” and “revolutionaries”

20:10 – Uncertainty of nutrition science & how you can tell if a nutrition study is bunk
30:58 – What is the optimal protein intake for strength trainees?
33:16 – Pros and cons of nitrogen balance and measuring muscle protein synthesis
36:47 – Does food processing impact the thermic effect of food?
39:40 – Why it’s not really correct to talk about ‘protein intake’
42:44 – Factors that drive maximum protein synthesis
47:21 – Why does it seem like you lose muscles so quickly when you take a break from gym?
50:45 – Protein intake, gluconeogenesis and nutritional ketosis
54:31 – Discussion about food satiety & why protein is not more satiating than carbs and fats
1:07:09 – Why consuming liquid calories isn’t a smart idea
1:10:49 – How to gather correct information from studies that have conflict of interest
1:18:18 – Why don’t all of the extra calories you eat turn immediately into stored fat?
