Do you want to simplify your life? Whether you are a minimalist or just someone who is looking for a simpler life, your diet could be a good place to start. A healthy diet does not have to be complicated. In fact, when we switched to an animal-based diet, we knew that we were simplifying the way we eat, but we had no idea how much an animal-based dietwould simplify our lives. In this podcast episode, we talk about the ways in which animal-based eating has helped us simplify our lives. You don't want to miss it. Intro song credit: Crystals VIP by From The Dust | https://soundcloud.com/ftdmusicMusic promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.comCreative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported Licensehttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US

I interviewed my husband, Jonathan about his carnivore diet experiment he did this year. Jonathan's been following an animal-based diet for the past three years and followed a strict carnivore diet for 75 days at the beginning of this year as part of the 75 Hard challenge. He has done a few 30-day carnivore challenges in the past, but this was the longest period of time he stuck to a strict carnivore diet. If you want to learn more about following an animal-based diet and eating like a carnivore, check out this podcast episode. It was really fun to interview Jonathan and I hope you have fun listening to it while learning a thing or two.Intro song credit: Crystals VIP by From The Dust | https://soundcloud.com/ftdmusicMusic promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.comCreative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported Licensehttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US

We watched Sacred Cow! In a world where veganism is on the rise and more and more people are making false claims that if we stop eating meat, we can save the environment, society needs this documentary. It was made by incredible people like Diana Rodgers, James Connolly and Robb Wolf. And guess what? The legendary Nick Offerman even narrates the film! We highly recommend you watch it when it comes out. Spoilers alert. In the Sacred Cow documentary, they discuss very important topics, such as:Claims that cancer and obesity are caused by red meat consumptionHumans don’t need to consume animal products to be healthy. The impact of raising livestock on the environment versus mono-crop agricultureThe ethics of eating animalsDesertificationRegenerative agricultureWhy you shouldn't eat that beyond meat burger (we recommend going animal-based instead). This is not even the full tip of the iceberg. If you're into animal-based eating and want to learn more about regenerative agriculture, watch Sacred Cow as soon as you can!Want to buy us a steak?

We've been following an animal-based diet for quite a while now. Jonathan has been carnivore for the most part and only recently added some other foods to his diet as an experiment. My love of dark chocolate made me choose a carnivore-ish diet from the start. In this podcast episode, we talk about our current animal-based/carnivore-ish diets, some of the benefits we're getting from being animal-based, as well as what a carnivore-ish diet looks like. Hope you enjoy the podcast and we really hope you'll give an animal-based diet a try.Want to buy us a steak?

Have you heard about the Health At Every Size (HAES) or even just the Fat Acceptance movements? As a couple of people obsessed with health and wellness, we decided to do a podcast episode in which we discuss our thoughts and opinions on the movements.In the episode, we discuss things, such as:Can you really be healthy at every size?Does the health at every size movement apply to people who are anorexic?Binge eating disorder.How the children of parents who are part of the fat acceptance movement are affected.How the Health at Every Size Movement can be problematic for doctors.Ignoring science in order to not hurt people's feelings.This was quite a fascinating topic to discuss. We probably could have spoken for a few hours on the topic, but perhaps we will do another podcast about the fat acceptance, HAES, and body positivity movements in future episodes.

This podcast episode is especially exciting because I got my period back for the first time in a year and a half! I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and losing your period is actually quite common if you have this condition. Even though I was told I needed hormonal birth control in order to get my period back, I still managed to get mine back naturally. In this episode of the Hart of Health, we talk about what we think helped me get my period back. I did not have to gain weight like a lot of women do who might struggle with Hypothalamic Amenorrhea, but you can lose your period for many reasons. Personally, I think managing stress was a big factor in my own amenorrhea story. Will do another podcast about my hormonal struggles with PCOS in the future.Hope you enjoy the podcast!Want to buy us a steak?

This podcast episode is a little serious. While we believe that governments are doing what they think is best to reduce the number of deaths from the Coronavirus (Covid-19), we cannot ignore the implication of putting an entire country on lockdown.In this podcast episode, we discuss various negative effects that we have observed and predict will happen, such as an increase in suicide rates, loneliness, weight gain due to overeating or eating out of boredom, people not being able to get the healthcare they need for other treatments, etc. We also discuss the financial implications of so many businesses not being able to operate. The views we express are merely our opinions on the subject matter. Want to buy us a steak?

On this podcast episode, we talk about following the carnivore diet as an elimination diet and to treat medical conditions, and we also talk about how Jonathan is feeling after a month of being on a strict carnivore diet.Have you tried an elimination diet yet? If you haven't tried it, we highly recommend an animal-based or carnivore diet. And if you have tried an elimination diet, but it was full of potentially toxic plant foods,  then try an animal-based one! There's no rule that says you cannot try more than one elimination diet to see which foods are best for you and which you should avoid instead.Want to buy us a steak?
