Under Attack: The Evolution of Ancestral Nutrition – Nora Gedgaudas : 594

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dave is live at PaleoFX with Nora Gedgaudas, an internationally acclaimed keto and ancestrally based nutrition specialist and author who has dedicated her career to combating “diseases of civilization,” such as cancer, metabolic disorders, mood disorders, and cognitive decline.

Known as one of the early adopters of the low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet, Nora combines extensive research with evolutionary physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutrition, and chronic and degenerative disease for mind-body health and longevity. 

  • On Digestion: “Our digestive system is far more similar to carnivores than it is herbivores,” Nora says. “We don't have a fermented base digestive system. Only 20% of our digestive system is devoted to fermentation. We have a hydrochloric acid base digestive system. We are designed to derive nutrients from animals that have synthesized these nutrients for us. We don't have any possible means of optimizing the extraction of nutrients from plants.”


Frustrated with what she’s seen happening within the paleo and ketogenic movements, she created her own term: Primalgenic®. Her newest work is based on 12 pillars, in which she’s combined more than two decades of knowledge of our ancestral roots and modern science to create an optimized nutritional approach to health and well-being.

  • On Carbs: “None of us are really designed to handle high amounts of carbohydrates,” Nora says. “We're just not. There's no scientifically established human dietary requirement for carbohydrate.”


Nora’s combined areas of expertise include being a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, a board-certified Holistic Nutrition consultant, a board-certified clinical Neurofeedback Specialist, and a Certified Gluten Practitioner. She maintains a private practice in Portland, Oregon.

  • On Wellness: “I've worked with suffering people for over two decades now,” Nora says. “So much of it is unnecessary. And I think people are being victimized by misinformation and disinformation and predatory advertising and all kinds of crap. I'm really, really committed to making sure that people get good information that can make a measurable difference in the way that they feel and function in this world.”


From food label laws to interstratified fat to “settled” science and angry vegans, you don’t want to miss this episode. (And don’t miss Nora’s guest column, on the Bulletproof Blog.}
