Ray Peat's most Controversial & Interesting Theories on Health | Rejuvenate Podcast Ep. 26

by Krissy Hawkes & Elwin Robinson

"CICO (calories in calories out) is nonsense. The mere existence of the thyroid disproves it."
"Sugar is the only Superfood"
"All Unsaturated Fats are Unhealthy"
"Healthy gut microbiome is rubbish, there's no such thing"
"Hormone supplementation is required to reach normal levels just 50 years ago"
"Healthy gut microbiome is rubbish, there's no such thing"
"Hard liquor is healthier than beer"
"Salads & vegetables are not health foods"
"Coffee, chocolate, sugar, ice cream are "addictive" because they're good for you"

Dr Ray Peat, a professor who specialized in hormones, had some controversial theories. It's easy to dismiss him if you've never read his work, but does he have a point?

As Dr Peat becomes more well known, embraced by other popular health gurus, Elwin Robinson and Krissy Hawkes discuss if some of his most controversial ideas actually had merit?

The Fiber Menace

The Rejuvenate podcast is dedicated to looking at the real root causes of premature aging, and what we can do to 'turn back the clock' and feel younger and healthier again.
Each episode will focus on a different area of health.

To begin with, episodes will be quite broad and just an overview of a big subject, then later the plan is to go more in depth, both with our hosts, and also guests, on more specific issues and give a comprehensive plan for each.
