It’s Thursday and that means another action-packed episode of the realest talk on the internet–Real Talk with Jimmy Moore and Dr. Will Cole. Today we bring you a special presentation we call the Methylationcast!
“Methylation happens about a billion times every second in the body, but we still don’t understand the totality of it, not even close.”

Your genetics influence almost every aspect of your health. Everything from your weight, mood, hormones, and immune system can be traced back to your DNA. As humans we want to know as much about ourselves as possible and because of this the demand for direct-to-consumer genetic testing has grown. For only $100 you can get a kit delivered right to your house for you to send in and get a complete summary of your genetics and ancestry. You can identify distant cousins around the world and conclude what percentage Neanderthal you are because really, who doesn’t want to know that?!
As a functional medicine practitioner Dr. Cole is less concerned with your particular ethnic heritage and more with what role genetics play in your health and how knowing your DNA can make you aware of your risk factors for certain illnesses. But are these tests really worth it or just an easy way for the health industry to make a few dollars? Let’s find out by first looking at the two most popular tests:

It’s Thursday and that means another action-packed episode of the realest talk on the internet–Real Talk with Jimmy Moore and Dr. Will Cole. Today ask an important question: How can all the various camps in nutrition work together?
“Atkins is the granddaddy of them all and set the stage for all of these to come along.”– Jimmy Moore
“My top patient base include engineers, nurses, and teachers; people that love data and spreadsheets.”– Dr. Will Cole
If you are health-minded for very long, you have probably watched the progression and evolution of nutrition. With the advent of the Atkins Diet in the 1970s, Dr. Atkins brought to the mainstream the idea that we should question the status quo of nutrition education. He showed us that carbohydrates were doing us more harm than good. Along the way we have seen other variations on this same way of thinking that brought us the Paleo way of eating, Whole 30, Keto, and now Carnivore.
Listen in today as Jimmy and Will have a fascinating conversation and bring you some real-world information on how to incorporate the best of all these protocols and get the benefits they all bring to your health.
