Judy Cho is a nutritional therapy practitioner, nutritional author, and prolific producer of evidence-based nutritional content online. This intelligent women values family, bio-individual health, honest science, and a return to clean ancestrally-consistent nutritional choices. She’s comfortable with complexity, but delivers compelling simplicity.

The evidence, science, observations and her own personal experience has landed her on a meat-based diet, with her Instagram and Book focusing on what she calls a Carnivore Diet.

Be prepared in this episode for your nutritional paradigms to be challenged, if not shattered!

In this episode we unpack Judy’s 12 year commitment to a plant-based way of eating, and the mental health and disordered eating issues she grappled with throughout – just thinking she was broken and weak. We dig into these issues, the therapy and medication approaches offered – all the while having our failing diet praised by doctors.

We talk about Judy’s leap into the unknown and scary – dropping the plants and going completely meat-based – i.e. a Carnivore Diet – and why after three years she is such a strong advocate for this way of eating. Being completely healed of her mental health and disordered eating battles, Judy helps us understand why scientifically  she is now thriving.

We define what she was eating before, and what exactly is involved in her carnivore diet. We explore diabetes, gut issues, sugar addiction, hormonal and neurotransmitter issues, brain energy dysfunction,  and why a carnivore diet can be a powerful tool to heal chronic deficiency and inflammation.

We touch on traditional nutritional wisdom, the problems with modern plants and our consumption patterns, and the role of meat and plants in the human diet. And loads loads more….
