Episode 040: Alan Flanagan, The Nutritional Advocate


Episode Notes

Alan Flanagan is a passionate advocate for science-based nutrition and communicating nutritional science. He has very clear views in a host of areas that could completely change how you think about nutrition: he lingers on the middle class fetish around carbs and fat; the need to change energy availability in the environment and food culture; the role of mandatory regulation on public health; and he jumps into one of his big passions on how nutritional science needs to engage on its own terms with the evidence and not get pulled into an RCT model that is inherently not applicable to food. Oh, and he’s also a lawyer: he knows how to structure an argument. Enjoy.

Episode 039: Lifestyle Medicine with Dr John Sykes

Episode Notes

Dr John Sykes is a GP and a Trustee and Director with the British Society for Lifestyle Medicine. We talk about the lifestyle medicine movement, nutrition, healthy lifestyles, and how we can try to ensure that lifestyle change is not simply a middle class aspiration that worsens health inequalities. We range across a lot of different areas that are all about lifestyle medicine: physical activity and finding the right movement for you; HIIT and the evidence; fad diets and polarised views; orthorexia, Instagram; and how to help people change through motivational interviewing.

John emphasises the importance of an evidence-based approach to lifestyle medicine in areas and he explains how it can have wider ‘upstream’ benefits to help across all societal groups.
