Paleo Solution Podcast with Robb Wolf, ep. 285

I had the pleasure of appearing with Robb Wolf on episode 285 of the Paleo Solution Podcast. Talking with Robb is always a blast, and I hope you enjoy our discussion as much as I did.

We talked a bit about the Perfect Health Retreat. The October 2015 retreat is currently sold out, but we are accepting reservations for the next retreat, April 30-May 7, 2016. Reservations placed by December 31 will receive 2015 prices. Deposits can be applied to any future retreat, not just next May, so you don’t have to be certain of your schedule to reserve. As you’ll hear in the podcast, Robb is thinking about coming next May; if he does the chance to meet him would be an added attraction.

To learn about the retreat, visit the web pages under the Perfect Health Retreat tab, starting here. To reserve a room or for more information, please contact Paul Jaminet at

  1. I have Hashimotos and would really appreciate if you could point me to more info about the things you spoke with Robb about concerning Hashimotos and avoiding red meat. Thanks so much.

  2. Hi, Paul, I followed the link that you provided to Ron above and read with great interest about the correlation between Hashimoto’s and mammalian meat. My husband was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s about 7 years ago and has had a full thyroidectomy. This was due to cancer they also found, but the pathologists also found Hashimoto’s when they did the pathology on his thyroid gland. Both sides had Hashi’s. We were told that he will always be considered “hypothyroid” due to the way they are dosing his Synthroid (175 mcg.) so should I use your advice for the last commenter on the link article and follow the PHD with more fish and birds? BTW could this also be part of the so called French paradox since they tend to eat more fish and fowl especially duck? Thanks so much for your site and for all you and Shou Ching do to educate and inform.

  3. One more thing. The surgeon told my husband that he would try to leave his parathyroid but when the surgery was over with, there remained some confusion whether or not he was left with one or two parathyroids. So they have him supplementing with calcium. He likes cheese but isn’t crazy about it and we don’t drink milk as a rule. Cutting out/down dairy is advised with the Neu… antibody so where do we go if we assume that he can’t process calcium now. If this sounds like confusion then I am confused!!

  4. One scientist I respect along with the two of you is Ronald Krausse, as he seems dedicated to following the science rather than some ideology. While mostly his views overlap with yours, he thinks that while eating meat is ok on special occasions, a steady diet puts you at risk for cardiovascular problems, though he says he doesn’t know what the mechanism is. Consecuently I’ve been eating more fish, and not much meat. Any thoughts?

    • Eating fish rather than mammalian meat is very well supported. It has a better mix of amino acids, better fatty acids (low omega-6), and is less likely to induce autoimmunity.

      Avoiding meat to become a vegetarian would be a mistake.

  5. Hi Paul,
    So if you eat spicy food or drink alcohol, either are antimicrobial for the small intestine. But spicy food and alcohol showed no benefit over just eating spicy food. Did I understand that correctly? Thanks.
