Brian Sanders created the “Peak Human” podcast to investigate what the optimum human diet looks like, and his podcast explores the science and history of human nutrition. Each episode features a guest (i.e. doctors, farmers, filmmakers, athletes, researchers) who shares their expertise, health stories, and lifestyle choices. Sanders does not shy from controversy, for he often challenges his guests and maintains a mostly unbiased point of view. His mission is to promote what he calls the “Sapien framework,” and he encourages people to eat nutrient-dense foods.
“Peak Human” is an excellent resource for learning about nutrition, and it covers a variety of topics such as sustainable farming, chronic disease, ancestral diets, exclusion diets, and athletic performance. Sanders does not promote or align himself with a specific way of eating (like the vegan, carnivore, or keto diet). He avoids a dogmatic food approach and evaluates these diets’ strengths and weaknesses. His message is clear: eat full-fat, low-carb, whole foods that are satiating and energizing.
Because he interviews such a wide variety of people, you will hear numerous perspectives about nutrition. Tune into this podcast each week to challenge your beliefs and learn something new.
