Since 2012 Ivor has been intensively researching the root causes of modern chronic disease. A particular focus has been on cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. He shares his research insights at public speaking engagements around the world, revealing the key nutritional and lifestyle interventions which will deliver excellent health and personal productivity. He has recently presented at the British Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR) and also at the Irish National Institute of Preventative Cardiology (NIPC) annual conferences.
Ivor’s 2018 book “Eat Rich, Live Long” (co-authored with preventative medicine expert Jeffry Gerber MD, FAAFP), details the conclusions of their shared research: https://www.amazon.com/Eat-Rich-Live-Long-Mastering/dp/1628602732/

Keto diet is lower carb and more fat than low-carb. Keto might be needed for people with more severe conditions.
Ivor differs in that his advice is to not add more fat in to get keto, but skip meals instead.
We evolved from scavengers and hunters. We even ate the meat-eaters.
Pharma and farmer fears are that people will not want their processed foods and meds.
Eat your fat in the food. A high-protein diet is not ideal. Eat to satiety. One meal a day.
Have a cured hard sausage, cheese, or a tin of sardines on hand to satisfy urges to eat.
They can’t find anything against meat, but they desperately want to. So desperate they’re playing up alpha-gal allergies to meat from tick bites.
Supplemental fiber is not needed. Is a stand-in for processed food. Fiber can’t add anything. Study showing fiber actually makes constipation worse.
Mega-surveillance enabled by 5G.
Omega-3, EPA, DHA and fish oil? Easily oxidize. Good to eat them in small fish like sardines, which is a highly healthful food source.
Neanderthals never learned to fish, but homo sapiens did, giving them a survival advantage.
Meat and 2 veg was classic nutritional advice.
Can good fats help Alzheimer’s? Yes, but the problem is what we had eaten over the years. Processed fats exploded over 100 years ago. Some Alzheimer’s is Type 3 Diabetes. ¾ of our food is ultraprocessed and essentially poison.
Do we need fruit? Modern fruits are bred for high sugar. Probably little need other than for Vitamin C. But organ meats are a source of Vitamin C.
Cream doesn’t have milk proteins and is naturally sweet.
Very low carb eater has low insulin. When they do a oral glucose tolerance test, need to prep with added carbs for several weeks beforehand.
If we have no carbohydrate, ketones take over, and liver creates sugar by gluconeogenesis. Higher glucagon stores. We can pump out more than 10 times the insulin needed if fed sugar. Brain switched to 70% fueled by ketones. The heart loves ketones.
Body adapts to low glucose states. Experiment on fasted subjects showed blood glucose in teens with no ill effects.
Mental sharpness enhanced by high ketone levels in the brain. Hunger taken away, but a good brain for hunting.
Dr. Jason Fung is a fasting master. One meal a day is fine. Each pound of body fat is 2 days worth of calories. When food goes short, the body starts sparing every calorie. Burns fat as slowly as possible. Pseudo-euphoria after 3 or 4 days without food will enhance meditation.
Listener with stiffness and joint in muscles. Try carnivore. Stages of adaptation needed.
Is it possible to get dessicated organ meats to fulfill need for organs? Can get capsules of a freeze-dried organ combination from grass fed sheep in New Zealand. Product is Organ Ultra from X-TendLife.com. Coupon code IVOR15 for 15% off first order. Ivor is a technical advisor for the company.
Listener not pooping enough on a carnivore diet. Might need more magnesium. Take after a big meal.
Are eating plants problematic? For some. Meat, fish, eggs are safe. Added vegetables can be a mineral source.
Need to eat gristle and collagen from meat, not just the muscle meat.
Grass-finished beef not significantly different from grain-finished. Eating any meat is better than eating grains.
Butter, eggs, organ meats can substitute for lack of fat in food. Avoid seed oils.
Dogs are scavengers, but best food is beef. “As fit as a butcher’s dog”. Cats are obligate carnivores.
