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?
