Course Description

What is the difference between a balanced diet and a perfect diet? In this lecture, we will discuss the physiologic response to different macronutrients in carnivores (from muscles to mitochondria) and the reason we use different macronutrients and food-based micronutrient balance in a pet food recipe. We will look at what science and clinical data say about fasting and random feeding, and its effects on mitochondrial function and overall health.

Things to Learn

Details on diversity and variety, ingredients, moisture appropriateness, variety, sourcing, freshness, texture, amount, timing, and ancestral satisfaction will be addressed. Finally, attendees will learn how to recognize and support the healthy and essential variations in microbe populations and protective skin and GI substances, and to recognize excesses and deficiencies that cause issues. Practical tips on how to keep the biome healthy will also be discussed.
