Jamie Caporosso – Keto Paleo advantages for Athlete’s and Chasing Ketones

Jamie Caporosso takes us through his low carb journey and explains his personalized nutrition approach using ketogenic principles via a paleo template.

Here’s the latest release from Low Carb Breckenridge 2017 conference.

Jamie graduated from the University of Michigan in 1997 with Bachelor of Science. He has competed in Drug Free Powerlifting since 1989, and has won multiple Local, State, National, and World Platforms in Multiple Powerlifting Federations Raw and Equipped divisions. He is the owner of a gym in the Detroit region and an expert in ketogenic principles, especially with a Paleo-based template.

Jamie is the developer of the App KetoCheck and is currently developing ‘KetoCheck – MyMeal’ as well as the Ketogenic Index and Ketogenic nutritional rating system. He is also currently working to complete the book “KetoPaleo – Optimal Health and Performance Through Exercise and a Natural Human Diet”.

    Can we discuss Jamie’s contention that humans would not
    have consumed dairy? It is disingenuous to always use the
    visual of large ruminants with big antlers to prove that nobody
    would have gone into a herd to suckle. Maybe so, but humans
    killed animals (including large well antlered ones) on massive
    scales. Would not many of the dead have stores of milk that
    would be easily consumed? I doubt that the humans would
    have avoided the sweet, fat laden liquid. As a matter of fact
    I think they would have preferentially consumed it.
    Another issue is that humans developed the gene to make
    lactase. Why would they need this if they were to avoid dairy?
    Yes, they would need it as infants, but adults also have the enzyme
    The large dangerous animal argument forgets that there are many
    animals, such as sheep, goats, dogs, and many others that can
    offer milk products. It is easy to hobble a small animal and that
    is what they did and do. The Masai drink milk from hobbled
    animals. If you think humans are too stupid to hobble or otherwise
    contain animals, how do ants “ranch” aphids? Ants move the
    aphids around to plants and put them to sucking the sap that the
    ants cannot otherwise consume, and then consume the fluid that
    is excreted by the aphids. There are many other examples of
    primitive animals “ranching” other animals for their nutritional
    needs. Surely even primitive humans were at least as adept as an ant.
    There are all kinds of reasons that milk was and is a fine source
    of nutrition and even if it was avoided over 10,000 years ago, that is
    not a reason to avoid it now.

      Hi Bill, Thanks for chiming in. I love when folks do as that means someone is watching. LOL You bring up some good points. I agree with the fact that if they had found it, they probably would have enjoyed it. As a matter of fact you could probably argue that it was starting to work it’s way into the evolutionary picture. What I would struggle with is the small percentage of the planets population that does still produce the enzyme necessary to digest lactose in their adult years. Then that is only one component of dairy that causes issues over time with allergies, natural growth hormones, bioactive proteins, peptides, bovine insulin and Type 1 Diabetes. etc.
      Remember for it to work its way into evolution it has to be by chance genetic mutation. We don’t get to pick a mutation it is completely by chance. Then that mutation has to go checked or unchecked by our environment. Some theories I have read is that the enzyme production is supposed to shut off in all of us by around age 4 but a mutation in a certain population went unchecked. Meaning nothing happened at a world scale to favor the one new species with the mutation over the other. Or at least not early enough in the life cycle to stop reproduction. Like I mentioned above, all the other components of dairy, research is showing to have an affect on our health. Loren Cordain has a lot of great references in the back of his book, Paleo Answer. That I am still working my way through for my book. He is kinda the guru if you are not familiar and brings up some good points. I have been following for a good many years. Also, Since I gave this talk at Breck I have had a lot more Client success dropping Dairy and its only help reinforce, to me anyway, there is something there.
      Thanks for Chiming in. Again, I appreciate it more than you can imagine as I know people took the time to watch me.
