#101 Are You Being the Change?
We have lost some very important people to us over the last few months. Losing someone important seems to result in self-reflection. Over the last several weeks we have, again, asked ourselves if we are the change we want to see in the world. In today’s episode we are chatting about that topic. It’s a good question to ask. Am I being the change? Our book Carnivore Diet Cookbook: 6 Weeks of Meal Plans and Recipes to Reset and Achieve Optimal Health is going on sale May 11, 2021! We will keep you up to date on information about pre-orders! We are so excited to share this with you guys! We have a free recipe for you that was not included in our cookbook!

#100 Where We’ve Been and How to Start Anything
It’s been a while. During the holiday season life took a severe turn and I (Melody) lost one of the most important people in my life. We appreciate your patience as we took a very long hiatus to allow me to get my self together, finish writing a book, grieve, and just have some time uncoupled from a few extra activities…like this podcast. Sometimes you have to let things go and just regroup. That’s exactly what we have done. Thank you so much for being here. Our first time back in the podcaster seat may be a little bumpy. We had several computer challenges while recording this. But that’s life right! We hope to rekindle our relationship with you my friend. As always, we are candidly sharing our journey with you. Our mistakes, our failures, our victories, our challenges, and our successes. Eat Fat and Prosper! Steve and Melody

#98 Get Off the Hamster Wheel
Every holiday season we hear the stories from friends, clients. and even our own personal experiences, about getting stuck in a rut on the proverbial hamster wheel. How do we stay on plan during this time of year? Especially this year, because 2020 has been a real challenge! With gyms being closed for some and stay at home orders that can even interfere with outdoor activity it’s difficult to get on a program and make it stick. The holidays are a time when it’s easy to get derailed in our dietary strategy too! How can we make sure that one off-plan day doesn’t turn into an off-plan month, or two? Check out the website we mention to find Raw Milk in your state: RealMilk.com We hope everyone of you enjoys your Thanksgiving holiday! Meet us back here next week! Eat Fat and Prosper!

#96 Carnivore, Dairy and Dawn Phenomenon
We are back to posting episodes each Monday! This has been such a strange time in the world and we need some consistency. We are hitting a few topics that continually come up within conversations with clients today. Can I have dairy? What should I test my Blood Glucose? Why is my Blood Glucose high in the morning? How to best take advantage of the “Dawn Phenomenon” I mentioned an article that contains a study associated with the consumption of dairy and viruses. Specifically respiratory viruses. Here it is for you to read and see what you think. Immune Benefits of Whey Protein Please keep in mind when reading this article that what is found in natural raw unprocessed milk is the preferred choice for us. Get a KetoMojo! Knowing this information is so helpful! We mention Dr. Ben Bikman’s book Why We Get Sick on several occasions. Please check out his Instagram and get the book for yourself! You won’t regret it.

#95 We’re Back on High Fat Keto
It’s been a while! How are you guys? We appreciate all the inquiries about the podcast during our hiatus. It has been a strange year for us all. Let’s just talk about how much fat we are eating! That’s much more fun. If you don’t already follow us on Instagram head over to our page and check out our Instagram Stories. That’s where I’m posting daily about ketone and blood glucose readings (using my KetoMojo) along with over sharing about food and workouts. You’ll get a high fat daily dose of The TK on IG! Melody’s Ketone and Blood Glucose taken on KetoMojo from 1 October 2020 A higher fat keto diet has proved to be very helpful for athletic performance. That’s something we chat about on today’s episode. I love doing CrossFit style workouts and my workouts have been fairly demanding lately. This way of eating has not only helped keep my energy level high, it has also allowed me to recover extremely quickly and get good restorative sleep. We mention Dr. Benjamin Bikman a few times in this episode. If you don’t follow him, check out his Instagram here. Until next time.

#91 Eating for Health vs Eating for Weight Loss
Weight Loss is one of the top concerns my clients put down on their intake paperwork. But when I look at the paperwork I typically find a myriad of health issues. Some are actually very serious. But weight loss is the number one concern. Is that wrong? No it’s not wrong. But this may be the wrong focus. We all want to be healthy. But in all honesty we REALLY want to see a certain number on the scale or we want to fit in a certain pair of jeans right! Today we are talking about how we shifted our focus and what we try to focus on. We also chat about how we manage mindset and what we do when we have moments of disappointment. If you identify with what we are saying let us know by leaving a review on iTunes. We appreciate the feedback. Our goal is to share our journey with as many people as possible in hopes to help someone else. If you follow us regularly you know we are well over the age of 40 (we are almost 50!) and while much of our content is ageless, we do focus primarily on our peer group…you know who you are! You’re in my world now Grandma! Be sure and follow us on Instagram by clicking the Instagram Icon. We are accepting new clients.

#89 Should You Be Fasting So Much?
Don’t get me wrong. Fasting is a beneficial tool in the war on Metabolic Disease and other health related issues. But it isn’t always prudent for everyone to do it consistently for long periods of time. I’m not talking about planned extended fasts that are designed to reset the immune system. I’m talking about continuous Intermittent Fasting. That’s one of our main topics today. Should you be fasting so damn much? We know this is a difficult time in all of our lives and we appreciate you stopping and taking the time to chat with us via social media and listening to this podcast. We really are better when we are together. #alonetogether To set up your 15 minute Complimentary Consultation just go to our website: The Tactical Kitchen Eat Fat and Prosper Steve and Melody

#88 Metabolic Flexibility During Coronavirus Quarantine
This has been a surreal few weeks guys! Today Steve and I wanted to just show up and chat with you about some of our experiences during this Covid19 quarantine. Much of the world’s population have been instructed to stay in their homes and most non essential businesses are closed. Yet many others who are essential workers are giving everything they have to take care of the sick during this crisis, or to keep the country stocked up on toilet paper. Seriously who knew toilet paper would be this big a deal?!? We know we all have a part to play during this time. If your part is to simply do nothing that comes with its own type of stress. How do you handle the next 30+ days? Today we are talking about a few of our strategies to work through the next 30 days. We have also experimented with some metabolic flexibility in the last couple of weeks. It’s interesting how being keto for so long has afforded us a measure of metabolic flexibility that we did not have before. The most important plan we have is to laugh every day! Share with us what you plan to do for the next 30+days. eat fat and prosper Steve and Melody Check out the Episode on Type 2 Muscle Fiber here! Are you looking for nutritional support and coaching? We are currently taking new clients. Go to TheTacticalKitchen.com to set up your 15 Minute Complimentary Consultation. In this call we will find out if our services meet your needs. Just a quick piece of information we found out after recording: KetoCon 2020 has sadly been postponed until June 2021. If you purchased tickets they will automatically be transferred to the June 2021 dates. We hope that you all stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in Austin at KetoCon 2021!

#84 Is Dietary Variety Necessary
We are chatting today about the push for dietary diversity and if it’s actually something that’s necessary for optimal health. Do you need a rainbow of variety from around the globe to actually be healthy? Does our gut microbiome need bananas from Guatemala and Mango from the Caribbean or South America? How about depending on Kale for gut health if you live in North Dakota in the winter? Let’s peel this topic back like a Vidalia Onion from Vidalia, Georgia and see what happens.
