  1. Change happens, but so impressed to see you step back in on Engineer and Last Aid Station. It’s all such a balance and feels so uphill sometimes. Keep it up Ben!
    Proud to support you always,
    Jeff Schoeny

    1. Thanks Jeff. I appreciate the support.

  2. Ben, like many of the shows, especially Engineer’s Corner, and I realize it’s your show and you can do what you want, but can you please tone down the paleolithic diet bashing? Not every follower advocates regularly eating the almond/coconut flour Paleo treats. Also, some of us engage in intermittent fasting. In fact, there are research papers reporting that intermittent fasting is beneficial and activates epigenetic pathways that are not activated otherwise. Fasting isn’t as bad as you’re making it out to be, especially when you eat nutrient dense, satiating food. We evolved with fasting and it has its purpose.

    1. I’m not making fasting out to be bad. I’ve mentioned several times in the past that I’m a fan. Also, I am all for those who are doing it because it makes them feel better. Emails recently included. I’m not big on the crowd who is doing it to fit in and eat the treats you noted.

      1. OK, thanks for the clarification. To me, the tone sounded negative. Sorry if I misinterpreted it.

  3. Further, I’ll stand by my thought that the paled is more about the intermittent fasting and body going through its natural process than an intense focus on ketones. My whole point in this last episode was that.

    1. Agreed. Paleo does not necessary mean you are entering ketosis. Some Paleo diets are higher in carbs than others. Plus with high protein intake there is always the possibility of gluconeogenesis.
