Joe Rogan & Robb Wolf

By Geoff Griffiths @mmatraining1980

I’m paraphrasing here, so please check the podcast if you get time

Robb says that he uses the sauna for recovery after BJJ and it makes a massive difference.

He uses ice baths occasionally, but doesn’t find the same benefits in terms of recovery as he does with saunas.

The sugar industry back in the 1950s bribed scientists to blame saturated fat for heart disease etc.

Sugar is now regarded by nearly all nutritionists as terrible for health. See article here.

Sugar with saturated fat, is still regarded as , really, really bad for you.

Palmitic acid can be produced if you eat so much carbohydrate that all the muscle glycogen stores and liver glycogen stores are full. Palmitic acid can cause insulin resistance (i.e. diabetes). Study here.

Intermittent fasting still may be slightly ‘speculative’ but in theory it’s a good way to make your body utilise fat stores and experience  a small increase in ketones – thus avoiding palmitic acid production.

Information from a different podcast – it takes around 2 weeks to become ‘ketone-adapted’. You will feel pretty bad for the first 2 weeks of dropping down to less than 50g of carbs per day.

Robb has around 100g of carbs to fuel BJJ sessions. (see/listen to 1hour 25 minutes into the podcast)

Robb has MCTs with caveman coffee, peanut butter and either soya lecithin or sunflower lecithin

The Paleo community don’t really like peanuts – legumes do have some immunogenic properties i.e. they can influence the immune system, thanks to the anti-predation chemicals that are in them. If you have any gut/stomach issues, then avoid too many.
