In Episode 75 I sit down with Dr Caldwell Esselsytn Jnr, or 'Essy', to chat about his journey in Medicine & the specifics of the findings from his clinical trials on preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease.

Truly reversing insulin resistance & Type 2 Diabetes with Robby and Cyrus from Mastering Diabetes

In Episode 74 I sit down with Robby & Cyrus from Mastering Diabetes to chat about Diabetes (Type 1, 1a, Pre, and Type 2) and the role that nutrition plays on insulin resistance. We go through the body of scientific literature and explain what causes insulin resistance and how to actually reverse it.
Specifically we cover:Their personal journeys with Type 1 DiabetesPathophysiology of Insulin ResistanceDifference between low carb ketogenic type diets for Insulin Resistance and High Carb Low Fat dietsWhy Keto diets can promote insulin resistance (poorer ability to handle carbohydrates)What truly reversing insulin resistance actually means - specifically the the difference between reversing insulin resistance and managing blood glucose controlCommon diabetic complications and why reversing insulin resistance is so importantNutrition for reversing insulin resistance & diabetic complications (the practical stuff)and so much more
Strap yourselves in this is a long one (2.5 hours) but I guarantee by the end of it you will have learned so much about Diabetes and finally understand the mechanism that causes insulin resistance and how to reverse it and improve health outcomes. Not only is this understanding important for people with Diabetes but really anyone looking to better their health, particularly anyone who is overweight (millions of people have undiagnosed pre diabetes). Insulin resistance is a spectrum and eating to promote optimal glucose tolerance means you will be able to enjoy some of the most healthful food groups in the world associated with longevity.
If you any comments or questions, Robby, Cyrus (@masteringdiabetes) and myself (@plant_proof) would love to hear from you. Please tag us on social media or leave a quick review on iTunes.

Diet, Acne and Bodybuilding with Brian Turner

In Episode 73 I sit down with Brian Turner (a.k.a Brock Lee) and talk about his experience with acne. We delve into the reasons why he is grateful to acne, how his acne improved with dietary changes, bullying, body building, eating a pound of tofu a day for a month and so much more.
I've got to say I have a real soft spot for Brian and there's a fair chance after this episode you will too. His energy is contagious and he really is an absolute breath of fresh air, bringing light moments to an often very dark and negative conversation, in order to spread his message of compassion for all.
Hope you enjoy the listen friends. Remember, one of the best ways that you can explore any of the ideas you hear in this episode is by talking to others about them and where possible applying them to your own life. Or alternatively finding a quiet space to just think by yourself. This is something I regularly practice in my own life after I listen to a podcast or finish a chapter of a book - it's really incredible how much more you walk away with when you take the time to consolidate the new information you've encountered.
If you do, or have any comments, Brian (@brianturnerofficial) and I (@plant_proof) would love to hear from you. Please tag us on social media or leave a quick review on iTunes.

Ex Vegans & their Gut Health issues with Gastroenterologist Dr Will Bulsiewiscz, MD

In Episode 70 I sit down with Gastroenterologist Dr Will Bulsiewicz to talk about Ex Vegans. Specifically we discuss the typical journey of these folks who have bailed on Veganism and the gut health issues they have described. Dr B and I drill down on what is happening with the aim of helping you if you ever find yourself in a similar position.
By way of background this episode was inspired after a handful of Vegan influencers bailed on Veganism and reintroduced animal products back into their diet. One after the other, in what seemed like a 3-6 month period, it became a ripple effect where some of the most prominent influencers jumped on board and also reintroduced animal products into their diet. I listened to all of their stories and noted many similar patterns. I also noted that despite none of them being qualified in Medicine or the field of Nutrition/Dietetics many people in the comments were second guessing their own diet. It became apparent that the size of their following almost made their qualifications irrelevant. I'm all for influencers and I don't think everyone needs a degree to talk about a subject. However, the devil is in the detail of what's being spoken about and with life threatening eating disorders absolutely rife, we need to be careful how certain information is shared and who we, as individuals, go to for qualified information. I realised the vulnerability of these people and the vulnerability of their community, who had unknowingly been getting advice about nutrition from people who were privately going through pretty significant battles with food & their health.
So with that in mind I thought it was really important for me to get a world leading Gastroenterologist on the show to make sense of what's going on here. Its really important to note that the case study we discuss in this is 100% hypothetical. It's the typical journey spoken about by these influencers but isn't specifically about any single person in particular and I think you will see by the way the conversation goes that we both have absolute empathy for anyone struggling with their diet.
To kick things off Dr B and I recap Episode 17 where we did an in-depth conversation on the importance of the microbiome for our overall health. If you haven't listened to that episode I highly recommend you jump back and listen to it - it's the most listened to episode of this show to date.

Forget diet fads, how do the longest living people eat? Featuring Dr Renae Thomas, MD


In Episode 59 I sat down with Dr Renae Thomas, MD who is is a Physician working in Loma Linda California, one of the Blue Zone populations that display incredible longevity and high quality of life. This is a really important podcast - sometimes in nutritional science we can become too reductionist and zoom in on potential mechanisms without appreciating the complexities of human-beings. Observational data from people displaying longevity, happiness and a high quality of life serve as a reminder that sometimes we need to Zoom Out and look to those who are living proof of what it means to be healthy.
If you want to hear from an actual expert (a qualified Medical Doctor) talk about longevity and how to eat to avoid disease then you will love this episode.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
Where Renee grew upHer journey to Medical SchoolWhy she developed an interest in the role of food and medicineWhy it's like working in Loma Linda, CaliforniaWhat the Blue Zones are?Seventh Adventist's and the AHS studies - how vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians and omnivores compare in terms of health outcomes and mortalityTypical clinical patient presentations in this population of Seventh Adventist'sContrasting populations nearby who have different lifestylesThe type of diet that seventh adventists eatRenee's thoughts on the Ketogenic/High fat style diets and whether they are supported by scienceand much much more

Protecting the innocent with Carly Taylor & James Aspey

Kindness is the language the deaf can hear and the blind can see. In Episode 57 I sit down with Carly Taylor & James Aspey to talk about animal activism and talk about the importance of being patient, kind and understanding when communicating the 'vegan' message. For those of you who may be more interested in the health aspects of a plant-based lifestyle, or perhaps see 'vegan's as extreme, I urge you to listen to this conversation - I think it just may give you a different view of veganism.
IN THIS EPISODE WE COVER:Carly's personal story - where she grew up, what life was like, why she transitioned to a plant based diet and why veganism is so important to herCarly's typical day on a plateSupplements Carly takesCarly's idea of Pre-VegansStrategy for talking to others about the ethics of veganismHuman Rights, Mental Health, Animal Health/Rights and Planetary HealthThe idea of 'humane' slaughter, organic, free-range, cage-free etcPackaging of animal products on shelf & marketing anglesFuelling yourself on plants in 2019 - options for everyone (junk food versus whole food)Importance of the Lifestyle Medicine Doctor's encouraging plant based nutritionA plethora of resources to refer to for more information & inspirationPlans James & Carly have for 2019 and beyondand much much more during this 2.5 hour conversation
*NOTE: although this podcast doesn't go into as much detail about factory farming as my previous podcast with James Aspey when he shared his story, there is still some talk about what happens to animals. So with that in mind, perhaps one parents want to listen to first before deciding if it's ok for their juniors to listen. I personally think there are so many powerful messages in this for our children to hear - whether via directly listening or being given a summary appropriate to their age and personality etc

Why Pop Star Benny Cristovao changed the food on his plate

In Episode 51 I had the absolute privilege of sitting down with European Pop sensation Ben Cristovao or "Benny Cristo" as he goes by.
On surface level Ben is a man with an extreme amount of raw talent and a strong work ethic and steel like determination that allows him to fulfil his potential. But despite his impressive resume of achievements, what left a lasting impression on me from this conversation, is Ben's thought processes and overall state of consciousness. He has an incredible story and where many would be sidetracked by the notoriety of the pop music industry, Ben is using his influence to leave a positive mark on the world.
IN THIS EPISODE WE COVER:Where Ben grew up in Europe and his blood linesWhat his diet was like as a kidHow he got into singingHis achievements as a music artist and athleteThe moment he decided to change what was on his plateTypical foods he eatsSocial media and how he uses it to spark conversations and promote positive change amongst his communityand much much more

How much of your belief system is made up of your own beliefs with show host & creator of Plant Proof Simon Hill

In Episode 50 I sat down with good friend Will Dalton to chat about aspects of my life including what inspired me to transition to a plant based lifestyle and ultimately start Plant Proof. ???????????For those of you who have followed the Plant Proof journey over the past 12 months, and become part of what is a really incredible community that continues to inspire me daily, you will know that I don't actually like to share a whole lot about myself. I've never been one to want to over share on social media but given the growth of Plant Proof I appreciate that many of you will want to get to know me better, and rightly so! ???????????When Will and I sat down we literally started recording with zero format, plans or notes. Everything you hear is completely off the cuff... just how we normally would chat over a coffee after some soft sand lands and a swim at North Bondi. So here it is, a very raw and most likely slightly awkward episode (I much prefer leading the conversation than being asked questions) - I hope it gives you a bit more insight into how I think. Be sure to listen all the way to the end including my outro at the very end of the episode after Will and I finish talking where I offer some more insight into a few things to close out the conversation. ???????????As I mentioned in this episode my commitment is to jump on the other side of the conversation every 50 episodes (Episode 50, 100,150, 200 etc) for as long as the show is around to continue to share more about myself. Of course, you'll get little glimpses every episode too! ???????????Lastly, what can you expect from the Plant Proof podcast in 2019? Well I certainly plan to continue with the show and I am incredibly excited about the calibre of guests I have already recorded future episodes with (look out for episodes with @bennycristro, @ochosystem and @erinireland) and have lined up for the coming months (lots of Doctor's, athletes, nutritionists, parents and even a few movie stars). ???????????I don't want to give away too much other than that I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to be host of the show in 2018 and in 2019 my ongoing aim is to bring each and every one of you more and more value to help inspire & provoke positive thoughts and change in your own lives. Part of this will be changing the format of the show from time to time - for me becoming a better interviewer and getting more creative with the audio experience is incredibly exciting and it's this challenge to better your experience each week that's driving me. ???????????Friends it's been an absolute pleasure sharing information so far. Thanks for inspiring me. Hope you enjoy the episode. If you do I would love to hear from you - shoot me a message on Instagram @plant_proof or tag me in your Instagram story. ????????Reviews are really important: ????????If you enjoyed the episode and have a spare 1-2 minutes please leave a review on iTunes so the Plant Proof podcast ranks higher and becomes more discoverable for other listeners.

Popular Vegan influencer Tess Begg on her journey to Veganism & creating content online

Episode 48 with Tess Begg is perhaps one of my favourite conversations to date. Tess is in her early 20's and isn't afraid to tell it how it is. Her life so far has been anything but rosy and I love the fact she owns these hardships and openly talks about how they led her to where she is now. In this episode Tess speaks candidly about how she navigated her way through through her teenage years and despite having instability at home and getting caught up in the wrong social circles was able to seperate her true values & beliefs from those 'handed' to use by society.???????Specifically we covered:Where Tess grew upWhat family life was like and her childhood dietWhat her teenage and high school years were likeHanging out in the wrong crowdsSmoking and drugsWhy she transitioned to a vegan dietWhat her vegan diet was like initially and how it has changedBlood test resultsSupplements with some specifics around Iron, B12 and IodineWhy Tess creates content for social mediaHow long it takes her to create contentGenerating an income from social mediaHer thoughts on separating social media from her own personal life and 'offline time'Tess' vegan treat businessWhat Tess would like to do in the future???????If you haven't connected with Tess you can find her on Instagram and You Tube - her posts are sure to provide you with further inspiration for the plant based meals you create at home!

Adopting a positive mental attitude with Punk Rocker, Author & Plant Powered Athlete John Joseph

Episode 40 is certainly not for the faint hearted. Legendary punk rocker, author & plant powered athlete, John Joseph, takes us through his life and what it was like to grow up in Manhattan in the 60's, 70's and 80's with no money & little family support while being surrounded by some truly bad influences.
If you do not like swearing or have young kids listening this is not the episode for you. John grew up in some crazy times and did some crazy things to basically stay alive. Despite the colourful language though John has an extremely powerful message and one thing that rang true for me which stood out from our conversation was ?its not what happens to someone in life?its what they do about it?.
In this episode we cover:John's childhood years in ManhattanWhat trouble he got up to as a teenager & how drugs impacted his lifeWhat the punk rock scene was like and how he found himself amongst itWhy he changed his diet to plant basedWhy he joined the Hare Krishna'sHis time in the navyBeing on the run from police and using fake identification so he wasn't caughtThe work he is doing with correctional facilities and inmatesHis memoir and his other two books (Meat is for Pussies & The PMA effect)

Clearing the confusion around saturated fat, cholesterol, paleo & keto with Dr Michelle McMacken

In Episode 37 I sit down for the second time with Dr Michelle McMacken (previous guest on Episode 2) to talk about where the science lies in terms of eating for longevity.
We talk about a plethora of fascinating topics including:
Michelle's project with Bellevue Hospital which is now offering out-patients with chronic disease the option of participating in a plant based food programWhere the science lies in terms of saturated fat & cholesterol and their contributions to diseaseThe particular type of fat & cholesterol we need to be worried about when it comes to atherosclerosis (narrowing of our arteries) and cardiovascular diseaseSources of healthy fatsThe Paleo & Keto diets and where the science sits in terms of these diets being helpful or harmful from a longevity & disease point of viewWhat Type 2 diabetes is and helpful nutritional information for managing and reversing this diseaseand much much more
This is an absolute cracker of an episode, one of my favourites so far in terms of breaking down the science, clearing the confusion and helping us all understand what we should be eating more of and what we should be eating less of. Despite the headlines, the science is very clear and in this episode Michelle offers agenda free insight into exactly what it means. Grab a pen and paper...you're going to want to take notes and more than likely listen 2-3 times!
To connect with Michelle you can find her on Instagram @veg_md- I strongly suggest following her page as she often posts really helpful information directly from the many lifestyle medicine conferences she attends and speaks at.
For extra information from Michelle explaining Cholesterol, LDL-C & HDL-C please read here
As always folks I hope you enjoy the episode and find it thought provoking. I definitely did! If you did enjoy it please share your feedback by leaving a review on iTunes or posting on social media and tagging Michelle and Myself (@plant_proof) (I re share a lot of the feedback posted on my own story).

Dr Michael Greger on how to avoid heart disease with healthy nutrition

Episode 33 of the Plant Proof podcast I sat down with Dr Michael Greger. Dr Greger is widely regarded as one of the top Lifestyle Medicine Doctors in the world that fully understands the role of nutrition in preventing and reversing many of our leading chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, which was the topic of this episode. The fact that cardiovascular disease causes more deaths in Australia and USA (and many other Western Countries) than any other cause of death, combined with the fact that it can be avoided through dietary changes in most cases, makes this episode and underlying message so incredibly important. We were a bit strapped for time on this episode so we dove straight into the nitty gritty but I do plan to catch up with Dr Greger in person in the not to distant future to sit down and record a longer podcast episode dedicated more to his life journey and a broader look at the state Medicine in the United States and how he would like to see things change going forward. In this episode we discuss: Why Dr Greger has a passion for lifestyle medicine?What cardiovascular and coronary artery disease is?The pathophysiology of heart disease - at a tissue level what is it, when does it start and when does it become symptomatic.Who is at risk of developing heart disease (Is it selective or not) and just how big of an issue is this chronic diseaseHow to reduce your chance of developing Heart Disease (or reverse underlying symptoms that already exist) and other chronic illnesses through nutrition, specifically what foods to eat more of and what foods to eat less ofWhats the role of cholesterol lowering drugs like statins (Lipitor) and how do they stack up against dietary changes.What foods raise cholesterol?What foods are great at lowering cholesterol?Ape & Portfolio diets for lowering cholesterolAdvice about cooking oilsHealthy heart sources of fatReversing damage to our arteries and how long it takes after making dietary changesDr Greger's favourite heart healthy breakfast and much much more If you know anyone at all who has cardiovascular disease or any chronic illness and you think they would benefit from hearing Dr Michael Greger please share this episode. I have personally gifted a copy of Dr Greger's book on multiple occasions to people in my life that I know can benefit from better understanding the role that nutrition has on their wellbeing. After all, we all want more quality times full of good health with our family and friends...so passing on this information is so important. If you want to connect with Dr Michael Greger you can do so on Instagram @nutrition_facts_org and online at www.nutritionfacts.org. As we discussed Dr Michael Greger's books "How Not To Diet" along with the "How Not To Diet" cook book are absolutely golden for anyone new to plant based eating that wants further information on eating to prevent disease, specific information on various plant based food groups and of course healthy recipes to get you started on your journey. Hope you enjoy the episode plant friends. Simon
