Who do you want to speak at AHS 2013?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 30, 2012 at 5:07 AM

  1. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride
  2. Sally Fallon

There's not enough focus on female figureheads in the health/alternative medicine field.

Blog, write a book or in some way inform people of your passion in a way that can help them and maybe you'll be on somebody's AHS speaking wish list one day too Matt. These people I want to see speak are adding to the field in a real way though, not just passing classes and memorizing facts. See gettingstronger.org, cholesterol-and-health.com, youtube matt lalonde, or go to jackkruse.com and check out brain gut 6, 12 and 13.

I do think there's value in other people's prespectives. Hell, I have a PhD in chemistry, and have nearly finished my PhD from PubMed, can I get a speaking gig? ;)

Well obviously I don't want them to talk about the same things , lol. I want mat lalonde to discuss safe starches, jack kruse to discuss body composition and hormones, Todd Becker to talk about the opponent process theory of motivation and Chris masterjohn to talk about cholesterol as it relates to muscle mass and cognitive abilities. Roth asked for a wish list I didn't realize I'd be getting grilled on my instinctual opinion...

Invite the best minds on the desired topic. Who are the top minds in hunter-gatherer anthropology dealing specifically with diet? Invite them. Bring on the dietitians/doctors who have experience using paleo in a clinical settings. etc...

There has to be a point of having an annual meeting. If the same folks are going to talk about the same stuff, there's little need for a symposium, just have them produce a monologue for YouTube. Some overlap of speakers and topics is inevitable, but should be avoided. There's a shitton of topics that haven't be talked about.

I agree with a caveat: it is not WHAT folks would like to see discussed, it is about WHAT the speakers actually have to offer. Not all speakers are created equal.

Exactly, hence phd organic chemist mat lalonde, neurosurgeon Jack Kruse, chemical engineer from Brown Todd Becker and phd chris masterjohn. Bringing the ideas of food, exercise, activities and philosophy together to create ones' perfect self. Obviously this isn't an exclusive list, there are others I wouldn't mind adding, but more is NOT necessarily better. There are a bunch of crack-pot bro-science theorists out there. Quantity necessarily pales in comparison to quality in this situation. For example, obama was different than bush, corn oil is different than butter and newer, are they better?

Not sure if a chimp's diet is close to a hunter-gatherer diet. They are two different species. But I think there is a lack of anthropological research when it comes to Paleo movement.

There's not one true way to do paleo... more voices, more viewpoints, paleo is largely undiscovered. There's something to be said for having the leaders of paleo there (Wolf, Sisson, Cordain, etc...), but think there's room for new faces/ideas.

I agree with Stephen, starch > fruit, which for some inexplicable reason GAPS approves fruit despite the fact that a large percentage of Europeans have fructose malabsorption and many outright fructose intolerance.

@Matt I disagree that new perspectives are what's needed. What's needed are results and people who can deliver them. There's an infinite number of ways to hit a golf ball but only one that's gonna be a whole in 1. I'll take quality over quantity any day.

I play poker with an anthropologist who studies diet. I don't know what his positions are actually, I think he's done field work with chimps, probably a little too pre-human to be paleo. If I know one personally, I'm sure there are dozens of others studying the right stuff!

I agree though that if you're going to eat carbs then starch is where you should get it. Especially compared to the other source of carbs found naturally in nature, Fructose.

Never been one for personalities (particularly because there are a number personalities in paleo that don't bring anything new to the table). I'm more interested in what folks would like to see discussed.

I want to see someone talk about nutrient synergies.

I want to see someone talk about diagnosing/misdiagnosing nutrient deficiencies.

I want to see someone talk about body composition as it relates to aging in modern society.

Those are just a core idea to for someone to take and refine, but any topic that covers these in some way will get me to watch.

and Daphne Miller

I actually think that I learned more eye-opening info from those three than from male figureheads. Not sure why - maybe they had a more holistic approach?

Yesterday I watched Gary Taubes. There are so many flaws in his thinking - it is amazing. Does he even know that he is focused on the wrong thing, I wonder?

Are there any speakers that actually study hunter-gatherer societies, live with them and observe them interacting with their environment? I would be very interested in learning about that.
