Chasing nutrient density all over the world | Brian Sanders

Brian Sanders is like my nutrient density brother from another mother.  

We spoke recently about a range of our favourite topics for his podcast, and he was telling me all about his trip to Tanzania to visit the Masia and Hadza people.  

I thought it would be fun to get him on to hear more of his travel stories to understand more about our nutritional heritage.

We got to discuss:

  • Why are you so fascinated by nutrient density that you would travel across the world to see how these people live and eat?
  • Why did you want to go to Tanzania?  How did you organise a trip to visit a Masai tribe?  I imagine this is not something just anyone can do.  
  • What is the weirdest food you ate?
  • Were you worried about hygiene or getting sick?  
  • How are these people differ in terms of health, mood, vitality?  
  • Would you want to live in Tanzania and eat like this all the time?  
  • How can we implement these observations in our modern context?  
  • What foods would you tell someone to avoid to improve their health?  
  • How does nutrient density cut across all locations and dietary dogma?  
  • How is their environment changing?   How long do you think they will be living like they did 100 years ago?  
  • What are the implications for humans if we keep on our current nutritional trajectory?
