  • Опубликовано: 1 дек 2017
  • When your health is a top priority, trying to make sense of all the information on nutrition can be quite confusing.In this talk, Dr. Mike Israetel summarizes the scientific findings on diet and health and lays out the simple rules of diet design that can be used by nearly everyone to get the most out of their health without the confusion and contradiction of typical diet advice. Dr. Mike Israetel holds a PhD in Sport Physiology and is currently the Head Science Consultant for Renaissance Periodiization. Mike was formerly a professor of Exercise and Sport Science in the School of Public Health at Temple University in Philadelphia, where he taught several courses, including Nutrition for Public Health, Advanced Sports Nutrition, and Exercise, Nutrition and Behavior. He has worked as a consultant on sports nutrition to the U.S. Olympic Training Site in Johnson City, TN and has been an invited speaker at numerous scientific and performance/health conferences, including nutritional seminars at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY. A co-founder of Renaissance Periodization, Mike has coached numerous athletes and busy professionals in both diet and weight training. Originally from Moscow, Russia, Mike is a competitive bodybuilder and Brazilian JiuJitsu grappler. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Which is a sign of drugs. And to OP , Mike in podcasts with ReviveStronger calls his supplements "special supplements". He's semi open about it.

    I love how if you look at "the most thorough and scientific" advice on any one topic, the conclusion is underwhelming. How much should you eat... til you're pretty much full. How much water should you drink... til you're not thirsty. How much should you sleep... til you're not tired. How much should you lift... a moderate amount. How heavy should you lift... moderately heavy. Etc.... You will find that the truth ends up being intuitive, and the most impressive doctors and sports doctors will just confirm intuition, and tell you that you basically never needed to watch this video or any video on these topics, the answers are common sense and not extreme.

    I am afraid his sources are either paid by big corporations or cherry picked to support old “science”. Show me a calorie under a microscope. I want to see this so-called evidence. Where is the calorie receptor in the cell? There’s not one. The body is a complex chemical reaction. It requires various parts to make it go. It’s not quite as simple as “calories in, calories out.” But yes, starve yourself, and you lose weight... it’s just some ways of doing it are easier on the body than others.

    • Gary Flores
      Gary Flores 3 месяца назад

      +Spoder Gibbs But like you said , imagine if he had normal testosterone levels he would be even better physically. Maybe he is genetically gifted and surpassed his limiting test levels But I still don't know why it's so low. Do you think the meat has to do with it?

    • Spoder Gibbs
      Spoder Gibbs 3 месяца назад

      Gary Flores ..brah I dunno, does it matter. He broke the rowing record for 500m for 50yr old division. He did it in 1min 14. The absolute record is 1min 10 by a 30yr old. Who cares what his test is. He’s 4 seconds off being an all time world record holder competing with guys 20yrs younger.

    • Gary Flores
      Gary Flores 3 месяца назад

      +Spoder Gibbs But why is it low? Why isn't it at a normal range for his age?

    • Spoder Gibbs
      Spoder Gibbs 3 месяца назад

      Gary Flores ..are you cooked? Let’s suggest he has the Test of a 70yr old man..does he look like a frail 70Yr old man, does he train like one. His test is on the low side...but does that biological marker mean anything.. apparently Baker didn’t get the memo.. cause he’s phucking 51 and pulling 405 for 20 reps. Imagine if his Test was high.

  • Sunny Harris

    Scientific? possibly in his research but he only provided poor strawman counter arguments. What about autophagy, hyperinsulinemia from chronic glucose uptake, chronic mTOR stimulation?...

    • Joe Gilmore
      Joe Gilmore 7 месяцев назад +2

      He didn't go into anything you've presented, so why ask about it? I'm sure if you contacted him, he would be more than happy to explain his take on it. However - chronic conditions you're discussing are based on personal lifestyle (in the majority) if im not mistaken, and Dr Israetel was discussing nutritional preferences in regards to a scientific definition of 'healthy.' Not specific conditions with a wide array of variables.

      He already said you should be eating 70% good food and 30% junk food. If you eat 70% of your calories from decent food... then multivitamins will be useless for you. If you eat pizza and cheeseburgers for 90% of your total calories... then yeah... maybe a multivitamin might help a little.

    Good talk. My issue is that isn’t even “what has the most evidence” not a very good heuristic since there is enormous funding bias to show certain outcomes therefore it’s always going to be biased until there is a larger body of high quality science for all dietary approaches?
