https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/examinepodcast I'm a voracious consumer of knowledge. On an average week, I read 3-5 books, listen to 15-20 podcasts, and read several dozen research articles. And one of my secrets to this hyperproductive digestion of information is through the use of services, websites, journals, newsletters and, well, "digests" that disseminate information into readily accessible bite-size pieces that allow me to cut through the clutter and quickly get to the main summaries, takeaways and actionable items from all the content. For example, I'm a huge fan of the book reviews produced by gentleman such as Derek Sivers and James Clear. In addition, I stay up to date with health, medical and science news via the Stone Hearth Newsletters, exercise and nutrition research via the website Suppversity, and, for general life knowledge, I'm a recent subscriber to the Farnham Street blog for staying up-to-date with the best recently published books and articles from around the web. And - for one of the most comprehensive exercise, diet, supplement resources I have ever accessed - I am a frequent visitor to the website Examine and their monthly publication The Examine Research Digest, which is produced by today's podcast guest: Kamal Patel. Kamal is the director of Examine.com, an independent and unbiased encyclopedia on supplementation and nutrition. He is a nutrition researcher with an MPH and MBA from Johns Hopkins University, and is on hiatus from a PhD in nutrition, in which he researched the link between diet and chronic pain. He has published peer-reviewed articles on vitamin D and calcium as well as a variety of clinical research topics, and in today's episode, you'll discover: -How supplement companies and the media manipulate science for their own benefits...[11:38 & 16:30] -Why Kamal thinks the "elimination diet" for nightshades is a hoax...[18:55] -The best way to know if a diet or supplement website is delivering you fake information...[29:35] -The truth about what they really feed lab rats and mice in high-fat diet studies...[31:35] -Why an extremely high percentage of the research released in medical journals is flawed or biased...[35:00] -The best way to quickly review an abstract without reading a full article, and red flags to look out for when reading an abstract...[44:50 & 48:30] -The top three most proven and researched supplements that just about everyone could benefit from...[54:56] -The surprising benefits of daily creatine intake...[61:50] -Why Kamal   doesn't take fish oil, but Ben does, and how genetics should influence supplement intake...[65:35 & 68:35] -The two supplements most people most infatuated with that Kamal thinks have very low credibility...[72:15] -The most beneficial one-two combo stack you can take for daily mental performance...[77:45] -Why you should spread your vegetable intake throughout the day to maximize your nitrate exposure...[80:48] -And much more!
