Then Versus Now: An Evolution of Sports Nutrition. by Lori Russell, MS RD CSSD. March 5, 2019. No Comments.

Nutrition advice has come a long way and it continues to evolve. While dietary advice can be traced back to Hippocrates and Plato, a medical definition for the study of nutrition ‘dietetics’ wasn’t formed until 1839, and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans weren’t published until. THEN: Years ago, athletes didn’t overthink their diets. They ate whatever calories were available. Attention was paid more to how much the athlete consumed and not what nutrition it offered.

NOW: There is currently a huge divide when it comes to the best general diet for today’s athlete; meat versus no meat, carbs versus keto. Despite the divide, athletes understand nutrition is individualized and specific to. Nutrition is increasingly recognized as a key component of optimal sporting performance, with both the science and practice of sports nutrition developing rapidly.1 Recent studies have found that a planned scientific nutritional strategy (consisting of fluid, carbohydrate, sodium, and caffeine) compared with a self-chosen nutritional strategy helped nonelite runners complete a marathon run. Dariush Mozaffarian and colleagues describe how the history of modern nutrition science has shaped current thinking Although food and nutrition have been studied for centuries, modern nutritional science is surprisingly young. The first vitamin was isolated and chemically defined in 1926, less than 100 years ago, ushering in a half century of discovery focused on single nutrient deficiency.

Within the last half century, our food has drastically changed. Things we eat now are not the same as they once were. What happened? How has our nutrition.

“Evolution Nutrition stands out, by far, as the most user friendly, innovative, and efficient software program on the market. Thank you for bringing this valuable tool to the health & fitness industry!!”* Samantha W. Revolutionary Living. Food Then and Now: How Nutrition Has Changed Perhaps you’ve had a grandparent or older relative give you the “in my day ” story about how they walked 5 miles uphill to school in the snow, shoeless and fighting off saber-toothed tigers.

Meats, dairy and sweeteners provide smaller shares of our daily caloric intake than they did four decades ago; then again, so do fruits and vegetables (7.9% in 2010 versus 9.2% in 1970). Most of the fats we consume are in the form of vegetable oils: soybean, corn, canola and other oils used as ingredients or in which foods are cooked. This section provides an overview of the related areas between sport and health. An introduction to the role of sport in enhancing physical and mental well-being is provided.

A number of key themes related to sport and health are then explored in more detail: The health benefits of sport and physical activity; Sport, physical activity and risk. Then, a year later, in 1893 cast iron rims were used. Open ended nylon nets were approved for use in 1912.

This was a major milestone for basketball since the free falling ball after a made basket dramatically increased tempo and scoring of the game.

Girls almost never appeared playing organized sports, but beginning in the 1920s, advertisers embraced the image of boys playing baseball and football to promote a range of foods, from soups to peanut butter, from bananas to margarine.

  • No, bcos our society became more rely on technology and much less depending on physical demands unless we can boast up their potential as much as possible.

  • Sorry Mr. Epstein but in your Owens/Bolt comparison you completely forgot and left out the timing methods. Owens time was hand timed and prone to human error. Bolt was fully automatic timing (FAT), not prone to human error. So Owens even though on dirt and cinders with dig holes for blocks would not be within a step of Usain Bolt. Owens ran 10.3 but with hand timing you would have to add 0.24 to his time to convert it to FAT making it 10.54. That is almost a full second behind Bolt. The concessions for surfaces and blocks are speculative at best because no one knows what the actual difference is.

  • I just try to eat some salad and veggies every day, some meat maybe 2x a week, not much sugar and refined carbs, a little fruit now and then, and hope that some day our endless verbal sparring about this matter will become settled science.

  • Exemplary. One of the best TED talks. Mr Epstein could also have mentioned three times the population now compared to the era of Owens and Bannister. That inevitably increases the likelihood of more extreme body types, and individuals with exceptional natural abilities.
    (If only music showed the same improvement in quality from such a growth in population!)

  • notes

    Jesse Owens finished 14 feet behind Usain Bolt, but he ran on cinder tracks which stole 1.5% of your energy, and had to dig his own starting block with a trowel!

    when you look at 100M freestyle record times, steady downward decline punctuated by large drops, due to
    -form improvements (the flip turn)
    -technology improvements (pool gutters to reduce waves, frictionless full-body swimsuits)

    in 1920s, experts thought average body types were best for any sport; back then, high jumpers and shot putters had the same body type, now shot putters are inches taller and tens of pounds heavier; more specialization

    one out of six 7’-tall American men between ages 20-40 are in the NBA right now

    average NBA player is 6’7” with wingspan of 7’ (average human is 1:1 ratio)

    over last 30 years, average gymnast has shrunk from 5’3” to 4’9”

    in Kenya, the Kalenjins are the elite runners, they’re only 17% of the Kenyan population but vast majority of its elite runners
    the Kalenjin have really long, thin legs for efficient cooling and energy usage
    sidenote: a RadioLab episode also talked about how they have unusual ceremonies to build pain tolerance and to require running under extreme pain

    performance improvements have come from: changing technology, changing genes, and changing mindset

    we now realize humans are the perfect ultra-endurance athletes because we have:
    -long legs and big butt muscles for running
    -bare skin for efficient cooling
    -we can twist our torsos while looking straight ahead

  • No thats a myth atheltes arnt getting better, theyre getting worse over all, the only stand out modern athletes are usain bolt, michael phelps and zion williamson, thats literally it. If you could take all the old school guys and put them in their prime then throw them into sports today they would dominate these so called better athletes, jordan would kill lebron any day of the week, tyson and ali would make the heavywieght divison of boxing today look like a joke, hank aron would humilate every other batter in baseball, no defensive would be able to stop jerry rice, if royce gracie and a few other guys who fought in the beginings of the ufc today and you took away the rules and made it an anything goes kinda fight like the orginal ufc they would tear them up as well. Im just so tired of these notions where new is better when its just not true society and everything in it is going backwards if you didnt notice. Theres a reason for the saying they dont make them like they used to

  • track runner today using old equipment and track would lose easy. used to perfect conditions… jim thorps shoes got stolen. had two different size shoes and won the race.. had to find them before the race run over to start… they tried to recreate his training and super college athlete almost drowned trying to cross the river. after that he ran up mountain. climbed tress, ran back. swam back across the river.. ran with horses as well on the mountain.. fun facts..

  • He didn’t include in the swimming portion that the super suits developed in 2008 are band now but people are still managing to break some of the records they set as people are managing to outperform with less advantage.

  • This is really applicable to the discussion in basketball circles about how athletes from Michael Jordan’s era (i.e., mid-80s to late 90s) are somehow so much more inferior athletically to today’s basketball players. It’s completely bogus.

  • 8:44 that stat is wrong and has been debunked many times. The guy who published the article on this just completely used the wrong numbers. He based his entire article on the fact that the CDC lists around 70 people in the US as being 7 feet and there being 13 NBA players who are 7 feet. But NBA players aren’t measured barefoot whereas people at the doctor are. In the NBA players are measured in shoes which typically add 1.25-1.75 inches to their height, so you basically have to deduct one inch and a half of those 13 NBA players. And by doing so Roy Hibbert is the only american 7 footer in the NBA. At least 4 years when I did my research on this. So going by this the chance of an american 7 footer you meet on the street being an NBA player is not 17% but rather 2%

  • I saw a video once that asks a similar question in boxing, a sport that is less objective than hard numbers you get from sports like track and filed.

    In that case, putting aside the heavyweight division, in the lower weight classes many people don’t consider past fighters in the all time great lists because younger people nowadays have no desire to watch black and white fight footages.

  • I just loved Alyssa Crittenden talk, what she says is important for nutrition research in the present, it is not just about meat vs tubers, but about many other factors that are important to take into account: other important foods in diet (honey, fermented foods, different species of plants), behavior around foods, teamwork, tools, seasonality, even gender! i just looooveddd the talk, thankssss

  • All.of these insulin resistance talks harp on carbs but which is worse, refined sugar or carbs? Or do they both have the same effect once they enter your digestive system?

  • This is really well presented and has some super interesting facts and stats. He could have easily included climbing as a sport that has benefited enormously from technological innovation. Imagine Alex Honnold trying to solo El Cap without chalk or proper rubberized climbing shoes.. Or even the modern emergence of climbing gyms that make intense training (on specially designed walls and holds) available to so many people who dont have sufficient rock near by. This speaker’s body type analysis was fascinating. Check out Adam Ondra’s video where he analyzes the best body type for climbing, including his own. And its not what you think! A huge arm span/reach or “ape index” may seem advantageous for a climber but there is a significant loss of leverage and strength. Ondra’s I believe is only 1cm..!

  • Not since all the juicing stopped.
    IAAF under Sebastian Coe quietly buried the idea that most records are held by people on ped.
    You can look it up, they were debating resetting all the records and starting from scratch.

  • This video was hands down the best, most informative, most engaging Ted talk I have ever watched, this man is an amazing speaker and that PowerPoint was just wow.

  • I am at the start of presentation but what about hydrogenated and trans-fats? Now reached the part where it is mentioned. I have an opinion that take a fast food meal say pizza where you have the carb base, fat(usually from homogenised milk) then the tomato sauce (A single serve of tomato sauce is around 15ml (roughly three teaspoons of tomato sauce) and generally equates to 1 teaspoon of sugar (glucose and fructose).”To add to the sweetness of the tomatoes, a lot of sauce brands requires fructose corn syrup, which is not only bad for the gut, but also can lead to increased insulin levels and weight gain). Add to that then you add a sugar, fructose laden drink and these food fuel sources added a recipe for disaster as the brain and body are trying to deal with them at the same time. Then there’s McDeath’s, I mean McDonald’s and the likes. (and the hidden additives that are deliberately added to cause addiction to the foods).

  • @ 11.00 They based the dietary advice on what food is readily available for 7.5 billion people.
    It’s not Steak and it’s not Duck ��

  • Omg what an incredible video I love this man to the point I have just started carnivor and I already see big difference mostly when I do a wee…my urine is bright and no smell have been the complete opposite ALL MY LIFE i am over the moon..no craving no bloating no wind no tiredness just bouncing with energy and my mood is so much better thank you so do much for doing this video

  • Great Video!! However, I’d like to point out that the image placed under Eddy Merckx name is misleading. He completed the hour record on a track bike with drop bars, not a bike with mud guards and flat bars. Additionally, modern challengers of the hour record are allowed to use far more aerodynamic bike frames and aero bars.

  • Low Fat Diets such as Pritikin and Ornish have been shown to reverse heart disease, KETOs do not have any evidence it reverses heart disease. Drinking 4 oz of Olive Oil a day is not healthy.

  • Unfortunately a countrywoman of Tim Noakes, a scientist, said there is not enough healthy food on the planet to feed the population. There is not enough refrigeration in the supply chain from farmer to consumer to handle the food unless it is processed and preserved.

    There would be an outcry if it was proposed the cull the herd! Euthanasia is fought at every step of the way. Wars are unpopular. Sterilisation and birth control is fought tooth and nail by religions and cultures. So the population is kept in unhealthy animation for the profit of the big pharmaceutical, medical and food industries. Most drugs don’t cure but preserve unhealthy beings for big pharmaceutical doesn’t want you to be cured or die. This plays into the hands of the conspiracy of the medical industry and food industry. They continue to make profits. It also reduces the fight in the populace so they don’t threaten the status quo of politicians.

    Those who follow Tim Noakes are blessed as they will live longer healthier lives consuming the rare resources of grass fed meat and green leafy vegetables.

  • Human’s have needed running, and being well conditioned, for thousands upon thousands of years. Of course we’re not going to get much faster in such a short period of time.
    However, in the past, PURE WEIGHT/MASS didn’t really give a evolutionary advantage, especially once you consider how much EFFORT is required to gain and maintain that weight. Hence, this is why the sports in which RAW SIZE is very valuable (American Football) you see the average weight / size has just BALLOONED up over the last 30 years.
    In 1985, there was ONE 300LB player in the NFL. Now, the average O-Lineman is probably about 315LB’s.
    All this means one-thing: if the trait was IMPORTANT in our evolution, “gains” will be snail-slow. If it was something not required for evolution, gains will be fast.

  • Sorry great video but it really pissed me off when he was talking about the 100m in the superior metric measurement then said 14 ft in context to the 100m. Can we please just destroy the imperial unit of measurement once and for all?

  • He didn’t include in the swimming portion that the super suits developed in 2008 are band now but people are still managing to break some of the records they set as people are managing to outperform with less advantage.

  • One small factor he forgot to include is “money”
    Athletes have become an [income generation stream] for corporations. Lucrative sponsorship deals made between athletes and a brand, is another factor or subconscious pressure for athletes across all sports, in breaking records!

  • I was never very interested in what Tim Noakes had to say because people beleived him when he was wrong so why should they believe him now. Well! this video has changed my mind and may change yours. It is my turn to oppologise to Prof. Noakes for not taking the time before to listen to what he had to say. Many people are now talking about low carbohydrate diet and insulin resistance but the way he says in a way that anyone can understand is what sets him apart (in my opinion).

  • Big pharmacy is making a load of money for keeping the masses fat and sick so they can make money, there is no money for them if we are cured and not needing their insulin or metformin and other diabetes meds that are always in the commercials are big moneymakers hello people wake the f#$& up!

  • Epstein’s trying WAY to hard to convince us… he’s definitely hiding something. He needs to change his name if he expects anyone to trust him

  • Great talks…thanks…Shouldn’t we eat some fruits and vegetables to keep the microbriome happy?.would those be counted in the 25 gram per day grams allowance?

  • Sad that people want to be deceived by the belief in evaluation. It takes more to believe the lie. Than to believe in creation. Those are ape skeletons.

  • As a 15 Year Medical Doctor I’m disgusted with anyone who leads patients away from pharmaceuticals and towards a reduced swelling way of life

  • I think this stuff is fascinating, and for understanding our history it’s important to know and study. BUT…I would argue that what our ancestors ate doesn’t necessarily have bearing on what we SHOULD eat now. 10,000+ years ago, food availability was a much bigger problem than it is for most people now, and so when a food source was available it didn’t matter what it was, we just ate it and we ate as much as we could. But now, we have plenty of food, and if anything, dietary excess is our problem. In addition, I think the science points a specific way in terms of the best diet for both health and longevity. So while our ancestors might have eaten lots of wild game (maybe not) and fish, etc…, I’m not sure that matters now because we know that a diet too high in processed food and too high in animal foods (especially dairy) is unhealthful and leads to a host of metabolic disease. Also note that even while they ate animal foods, they didn’t use dairy (I know, someone will contradict that). Dairy is probably the worst offender for making people sick and diseased.

  • 16:45 These graphs are misleading. In fact, insulin resistant people require MORE carbs to gain weight. They don’t balloon up by eating the same as everyone else. Severely resistant people will actually LOSE weight despite massive carb intake, without supplemental insulin. Insulin resistance means their bodies are bad at storing sugar, so most of it is simply urinated out. (They better change their diet radically, to avoid rapid destruction of their vascular and nervous systems!)
    Also, lowering carb intake can improve insulin resistance. One is not simply stuck to an IR curve as he describes.

  • I’m soo happy I came to see this video. I see the light. After all these years I feared fat and I never lost weight. Since I followed this advice I’m losing weight and feeling great.im just beginning and now I know.omg Epic Win.

  • Your lecture will open eyes of those who are currently on refined carbs diet but doesn’t holds good to those who are on whole food plant based CHO rich diet!! Please review the literature before asking the Nobel laureate to return his pride!!

  • I just have to say that I’m floored on how long this video has been available and only around 500,000 views. Life saving information and there are 10 times as many views on a cute cat video. The knowledge and evidence is out there. Now it’s up to the individual to make the decision for longevity. I have already incorporated low almost eliminated carbs and have had remarkable effects.

  • So technology makes stuff easier great. We need to make the competition setting more realistic, there is no paved road in the jungle. An undefeated track runner under no conditions in their favor is more impressive than a champion with the same controlled conditions. Unfair but it shows they can overcome any circumstance to be at the top.

  • What a great presentation, I’d love to here his analysis on how Tom Brady has won two Super Bowls at the age of 39 yrs and older? (He has played in 9 Super Bowls and won 6 to date.) What are the collective benefits that give him this edge? (FYI If you don’t know football please refrain from blasting me, since deflate-gate finally came down to a “one ball scenario”, (and true football fans know about the Goodell issue), which is nothing compared to how Eli Manning prepared his footballs for play, full Eli interview/story was published in the NYT).

  • I’m so glad I watched this video. When I told others about my weight loss using Intermittent Fasting and low carbs, many knowledgeable people attacked my actions telling me it’s a mistake. Now I understand that I was up against 60 years of misinformation and poor science.

  • My anecdotal evidence is this: I’ve been fighting my weight for a couple of decades. I’d change my diet and lost 10#, only to gain it back again within a couple of months. I was constantly and consistently getting fatter, no matter what I did. Last December, I weighed 260#. Then I discovered Dr. Jason Fung and started on a Keto diet with as much intermittent fasting as I can do. Within 2 months, I had lost 40#. Today, I’m down to 210#. My blood work looks GREAT. I feeling great with a lot more energy. I “fell off the wagon” for a few weeks during an extremely stressful move from Oregon to Arizona and didn’t gain even a pound. For me, Keto and IF is a miracle.

    My wife has diabetes. She started the same time I did. Today, her A1C is down to 5.0. She hasn’t lost a lot of weight yet because her system was much more compromised than mine was, but she IS losing weight at a rate of about 1# a week. She has a severe back issue that she is getting addressed soon and, hopefully, being more mobile will accelerate her weight loss quite a bit. Keto and IF has been a godsend to her as well. We are both far better off now that we’ve found out HOW TO EAT PROPERLY.

  • What happend?, he asked. Answer: Doping, more money, more scientific approach to training and nutrition, easier access to knowledge.

  • Why doesn’t the canine ever get credited and mentioned for helping man? We seem to be elitist as humans. By taming canines to work alongside us, we were able to herd and hunt more efficiently. My Belgian Shepherd hunts in my almost acre backyard and gets rabbits and squirrels no problem! He will drop them at my feet on command or leave it by my door, yuk! If I had him in prehistoric times, I’d be eating well! Lol. It’s just a reminder how canines improve our lives. They are pack animals who hunt in groups too! Why do we humans always take full credit for being where we are as far as industrialization and farming? Not to mention horses, but honorable mention to them as well, haha

  • Thank you for an excellent talk. Dr Richard Bernstein, in his hugely important book “Dr Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution”, talks about what he calls The Big Fat Lie! He reccommends a carbohydrate intake of 6g for breakfast, 9g for lunch, and 9g for dinner: all the carb is from low GI vegetables. He is able to achieve normal blood sugars for his patients; quite a few complications can be reversed by means of this.

  • To be honest this is the best lecture on sport I have ever heard. I always thought like this, but I was never able to give as many examples. All of them are the simple laws of physics, but there’s too much buzz about the athletes as THE REAL FIGHTERS AND THE REAL WINNERS therefore I was shy to speak. There’s definitely a great significance of this lecture more for those people who are no winners at all but they know the value of sport and practice it all the time. They are always under some pressure of those “tough guys”=”champions”=”winners” I always looks at as jokes)))) I practice sport for all my life and I’m 49 now and this lecture lets me laugh at them even more. G-d gave you the body so run, but don’t tell me that since you run faster you exert yourself more, you are kind more of the human. You have the better physics))))))))))))))

  • I saw a video once that asks a similar question in boxing, a sport that is less objective than hard numbers you get from sports like track and filed.

    In that case, putting aside the heavyweight division, in the lower weight classes many people don’t consider past fighters in the all time great lists because younger people nowadays have no desire to watch black and white fight footages.

  • This post is several years old, so hoping you still can respond to questions. You mentioned that for insulin resistant individuals, to lose weight you have to get below 25 grams of carbs. Does that included counting non starchy carbs? Many proponents of keto/low carb say not to count non starchy carbs (salad greens, etc.) in the carb count so I remain confused on this issue.

  • Sorry Mr. Epstein but in your Owens/Bolt comparison you completely forgot and left out the timing methods. Owens time was hand timed and prone to human error. Bolt was fully automatic timing (FAT), not prone to human error. So Owens even though on dirt and cinders with dig holes for blocks would not be within a step of Usain Bolt. Owens ran 10.3 but with hand timing you would have to add 0.24 to his time to convert it to FAT making it 10.54. That is almost a full second behind Bolt. The concessions for surfaces and blocks are speculative at best because no one knows what the actual difference is.

  • Some years ago, I had my gall bladder removed. Now I find out that it is the result of a low fat diet. Thank you, United States government.

  • I cant get down with all that meat, im just not buying into the hype. I’m not saying that meat is bad for you, I just dont think you need that much of it, I eat about 3 ounces twice a week and plant based the rest of the week, my body handles that very well.

  • track runner today using old equipment and track would lose easy. used to perfect conditions… jim thorps shoes got stolen. had two different size shoes and won the race.. had to find them before the race run over to start… they tried to recreate his training and super college athlete almost drowned trying to cross the river. after that he ran up mountain. climbed tress, ran back. swam back across the river.. ran with horses as well on the mountain.. fun facts..

  • Tldr: humans haven’t gotten better.

    Humans had three issues that they fixed:
    1. They didn’t know what body types were most efficient for what sports.
    2. They didn’t know how far we can push ourselves. Once one daring person achieves a feat, others who might be better suited will know its possible. It’s a lot less challenging to attempt something when you know that it is possible since it’s been done before
    3: we train and eat better than people did in the past

  • Check out powerliftingsquat supersuits, bench shirts, super wraps, lots of liberal officiating. Compare the powerlifting of the 60s and 70s to TRUE raw unassisted with the same strictness of officiating and the lifts today that look like they have nearly doubled are suddenly back down to about 10%-20% improvement. And in a few cases no improvement at all. Then take into account that there are now midgets in the lighter classes who only have to lift a deadlift 5 inches, etc…..

  • Exemplary. One of the best TED talks. Mr Epstein could also have mentioned three times the population now compared to the era of Owens and Bannister. That inevitably increases the likelihood of more extreme body types, and individuals with exceptional natural abilities.
    (If only music showed the same improvement in quality from such a growth in population!)

  • Ok, so what do I eat? I’ve given up grain, sugar, anything processed meaning in a bottle, can, jar or transformed from farm to table. I gained twenty pounds last month and I am Keto.

  • So technology makes stuff easier great. We need to make the competition setting more realistic, there is no paved road in the jungle. An undefeated track runner under no conditions in their favor is more impressive than a champion with the same controlled conditions. Unfair but it shows they can overcome any circumstance to be at the top.

    What I don’t understand is this extremely alternative view from the folks at Mastering Diabetes.
    Please check this: https://youtu.be/DWiiEIh2e_8.
    They are promoting a high carb diet and showcasing 100 years of studies that improve insulin sensitivity by following a high carb plant-based diet.
    I am flabbergasted. Can anyone explain this, please? Thanks

  • No thats a myth atheltes arnt getting better, theyre getting worse over all, the only stand out modern athletes are usain bolt, michael phelps and zion williamson, thats literally it. If you could take all the old school guys and put them in their prime then throw them into sports today they would dominate these so called better athletes, jordan would kill lebron any day of the week, tyson and ali would make the heavywieght divison of boxing today look like a joke, hank aron would humilate every other batter in baseball, no defensive would be able to stop jerry rice, if royce gracie and a few other guys who fought in the beginings of the ufc today and you took away the rules and made it an anything goes kinda fight like the orginal ufc they would tear them up as well. Im just so tired of these notions where new is better when its just not true society and everything in it is going backwards if you didnt notice. Theres a reason for the saying they dont make them like they used to

  • The neaderthals (who had larger brain cavities than primitive humans from africa and even modern humans) and the denisovans beg to differ about that 200 breeding pairs on the whole of the planet hypothesis. But as the Professor says, ‘that’s another story’, where the out of africa theory of human evolution is completely dismantled and left behind. Nevertheless, i’m sure the rest of the talk based around his specialisation is far more satisfying as far as new paradigms of understanding are concerned. So no offense meant of course.

  • It’s not just about weight loss and insulin. We all have seen data showing that fat intake is directly proportional to cancer risk. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwEmgV8Wdg at 48 minutes.

  • How pitiful that so many continue to buy into the con of the myth of evolution. The Millennial generation—as the dumbest, weakest, and overall least impressive generation yet produced—totally destroys the myth of evolution.

  • I will NEVER understand people in the comments who are filled with knowledge after a few google searches, and a few videos. This man done years upon years upon YEARS of research, he has dedicated his life toward it, and unlike A LOT of Dr’s and “experts” out there, he is extremely pedantic and precise with his work. I trust him with my life.

    I was vegan nearly 2 years, and Prof. Tim Noakes shed the light upon my life.

  • Just what we needed to see, right now! Eating lots of meat and dairy, seems to be working for us (I grew up near-Vegan Vegetarian, as did my parents), but this convinces me that we need to take it even farther. NO more pasta NO more bread NO more navel oranges before bedtime NO more cooked vegetables (I suppose this means no more spinach-smothered steamed steaks), and NO more fruits, except lemons and the very darkest berries. Booze and sugar have been verboten in our homes, for generations, but I see that there are plenty of other refinements which can be made. I suppose that even raw carrots are out…

  • There was an Academic Seth Roberts (UC Berkeley) who ate a stick of butter (about 110g) per day for a year, he claimed butter made his brain function better. He died of a sudden heart attack while mountain biking aged 60. Butter worsens TC/HDL ratio and also medium length triglycerides if consumed in large amounts. One or two teaspoons per day is ok the body can handle that amount. I love butter as much as anyone but you should not eat it in large quantities, in the same way you should not eat sugar in large amounts.

  • What happend?, he asked. Answer: Doping, more money, more scientific approach to training and nutrition, easier access to knowledge.

  • but it is not an explanation, why so many US citizens are effected. e.g. in France you also traditionally eat quit some sweet stuff, still the people dont tend to develop problems that much.

  • Not since all the juicing stopped.
    IAAF under Sebastian Coe quietly buried the idea that most records are held by people on ped.
    You can look it up, they were debating resetting all the records and starting from scratch.

  • Amazing the number of comments here by religious wingnuts getting upset about evolution. Evolution is a fact. The theory evolution developed to explain the fact of evolution ie random mutations and natural selection, both explains the fact of evolution and makes successful testable predictions.

    Relevance here? Only that for most of hominid history, at least the last 2 million years, our diets have included a lot of meat and at best tiny quantities of grains. Ancient Middle East religious cults of early agrarian societies idolised grains and soon assumed that human history started with Man The Farmer. The First Man and Woman, cast out of Eden to grow food. This attitude is baked into our grain fetish. Its baked into the view of modern hunter gatherers as “degenerate agriculturalists” who lapsed, rather than the strong and healthy humans living closer to the pattern we evolved on… Hence the attitude that such people were primitive heathens. Modern adherents of bronze age cults have to lie to themselves on a daily basis. Get over it.

  • I use to have a difficult time losing weight. Now, if I want to lose weight I know exactly how to do it. I simply go on a 3-day water fast (72 hours) and then I keep my daily carb intake under 20 grams. This method obliterates any weight loss plateaus. Exercise doesn’t make you lose weight your diet does.

  • This video was hands down the best, most informative, most engaging Ted talk I have ever watched, this man is an amazing speaker and that PowerPoint was just wow.

  • What a great presentation, I’d love to here his analysis on how Tom Brady has won two Super Bowls at the age of 39 yrs and older? (He has played in 9 Super Bowls and won 6 to date.) What are the collective benefits that give him this edge? (FYI If you don’t know football please refrain from blasting me, since deflate-gate finally came down to a “one ball scenario”, (and true football fans know about the Goodell issue), which is nothing compared to how Eli Manning prepared his footballs for play, full Eli interview/story was published in the NYT).

  • I was not even heavy, a 62 kg male and even I lost a few kg after stopping carbs. the meat and dairy just cleaned my body and took the less quality flesh away. I feel overall better since and my depression got cured! remember to eat lots of fat like butter and raw milk to help with flushing out in the bathroom becuz you either need fiber for that or fat.

  • Great Video!! However, I’d like to point out that the image placed under Eddy Merckx name is misleading. He completed the hour record on a track bike with drop bars, not a bike with mud guards and flat bars. Additionally, modern challengers of the hour record are allowed to use far more aerodynamic bike frames and aero bars.

  • My great grandmother lived to 104 yr years old…She had never been in a Hospital and I dont think she ever went to a doctor until she was 102 Yrs old. I’m pretty sure that was her first time of ever getting sick enough to and that was just old age. One thing I thought was funny was she used snuff…lol. I think the only health thing she ever did was to stay away from Doctors 😉

  • No matter how brilliant he is in some ways it compromises any respect I have for him that he believes unproven theories of “science”, such as “evolution”. He regains it with the ability to admit he was wrong. Few can or will.

  • This is really applicable to the discussion in basketball circles about how athletes from Michael Jordan’s era (i.e., mid-80s to late 90s) are somehow so much more inferior athletically to today’s basketball players. It’s completely bogus.

  • Thank you so much for your science. But please cut back on the theory of evolution. To call it a theory gives it too much credibility. It’s not science-based. Also keep in mind that skinny fat is not healthy either. It comes with many health issues as well. I’m not a doctor but I’ve been skinny fat for 65 years and it wasn’t fun. I also cured most of my health issues on a carnivore diet. I originally started with fresh dairy products. Fresh meaning unprocessed. What I’ve noticed about switching to beef is that you don’t have to eat as often and shopping is much easier.

  • “Health” occurs when we stop eating carbs such as vegetable and fruits. We need to eat fat to protect our arteries and heart and lots of protein to turn on the cancer genes. It is important we cull society to prevent over-population so lets all eat extra cows, pigs, chickens and sheep, In addition, we should start consuming cats and dogs too,

  • I’m eat a NO FAT unrestricted carb diet, I eat starches not processed sugar, I eat a plant based diet and I am completely healthy in every way, if you eat animal protein you will get heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease and cancer. Tim Noakes is a fool, he got diabetes from animal protein not fat. The worldwide diabetes epidemic is from eating animal protein.

    For every research on diet you will find the opposite in seconds, no matter the diet.

  • Low-carb will give you peripheral insulin resistance too. It’s just that no one cares because it happens without compensatory hyperinsulinemia. But yeah, if you’re on low-carb and decide to try a different diet don’t be surprised when your blood glucose spikes like crazy after the first meal. It’ll go back to normal once your muscles realize they can grab glucose out of your blood without depriving your brain.

  • One thing to study diet and health in living humans, that’s science, quite another to claim bone fragments “millions of years apart” are “related”, that’s supposition and quackery.

  • Why doesn’t the canine ever get credited and mentioned for helping man? We seem to be elitist as humans. By taming canines to work alongside us, we were able to herd and hunt more efficiently. My Belgian Shepherd hunts in my almost acre backyard and gets rabbits and squirrels no problem! He will drop them at my feet on command or leave it by my door, yuk! If I had him in prehistoric times, I’d be eating well! Lol. It’s just a reminder how canines improve our lives. They are pack animals who hunt in groups too! Why do we humans always take full credit for being where we are as far as industrialization and farming? Not to mention horses, but honorable mention to them as well, haha

  • We still have to ask what causes the insulin resistance in the first place. Once you have it, Noakes seems to be right all the way. But why are we getting it? My money for now is on the linoleic acid overload of the modern seed oil diet.

  • It’s not a brain disease, it’s a disease of the second brain, the gut. When you have microbiota that needs sugar to stay alive, it adds messages to the real brain that it needs sugar. And cravings when it doesn’t get it.

  • I don’t understand the role of insulin resistance in the role of obesity. Excess carbs and sugar creates glucose in the blood stream, which simulates insulin, which stores that in the fat cells. But what is the role of insulin resistance? You can’t breakdown the glucose, which is stored straight into fat? Can anyone explain what I don’t understand? Thank you. Great lecture.

  • How does this explain the Indians and Chinese, who are not obese or insulin resistant, all eating rice? They should all be insulin resistant, but it’s the Americans who are, who eat more meat and fat? Noakes, who was an athete, eating high carb, developed diabetes, so it’s not accounted for by high exercise, even with high carbs. High exercise was NOT enough for Noakes and other folks.

  • I believe Australopithecus was something like a chimpanzee and nothing like a human. But I can still appreciate the science without bowing down to the theory of evolution.

  • I think this stuff is fascinating, and for understanding our history it’s important to know and study. BUT…I would argue that what our ancestors ate doesn’t necessarily have bearing on what we SHOULD eat now. 10,000+ years ago, food availability was a much bigger problem than it is for most people now, and so when a food source was available it didn’t matter what it was, we just ate it and we ate as much as we could. But now, we have plenty of food, and if anything, dietary excess is our problem. In addition, I think the science points a specific way in terms of the best diet for both health and longevity. So while our ancestors might have eaten lots of wild game (maybe not) and fish, etc…, I’m not sure that matters now because we know that a diet too high in processed food and too high in animal foods (especially dairy) is unhealthful and leads to a host of metabolic disease. Also note that even while they ate animal foods, they didn’t use dairy (I know, someone will contradict that). Dairy is probably the worst offender for making people sick and diseased.

  • I’m confused. At @ 34:14 Professor Noakes says Brown and Goldstein said that “The more LDL there is in the blood, the more rapidly atherosclerosis develops.” and then Prof. Noakes says all cardiologists will tell you that is garbage and for Brown and Goldstein to hand back their Nobel prize. Is it because now the cardiologists know that LDL isn’t a reliable indicator or at all based on the study in 2014? The one Prof. Noakes presented at @ 32:47. Thank you very much for anyone who might be able to clear this up for me.:) This is a great video:)

  • I just loved Alyssa Crittenden talk, what she says is important for nutrition research in the present, it is not just about meat vs tubers, but about many other factors that are important to take into account: other important foods in diet (honey, fermented foods, different species of plants), behavior around foods, teamwork, tools, seasonality, even gender! i just looooveddd the talk, thankssss
