Today, I am lucky to have here with me Prof. Brian Peskin, a world-leading scientist specializing in parent EFAs — termed PEOs — and their direct relationship to cardiovascular disease, cancer, and wound care (both traumatic and chronic).


Brian has always had one goal – to help people — regardless of personal sacrifice. But despite his integrity, Brian has suffered a lot of criticism and even slander as a reward for his hard work.

Brian is not alone. Many other health researchers have also spoken the truth and were chastised for it.


Brian’s great genius is “connecting the dots” between established sciences that usually remain separated, and coupling his findings with real-life results. He combines theory with practicality in a very unique way. Even though Brian does not always take credit for the science he has studied – he is often only the messenger of the information already published in leading medical textbooks and medical journals — he has also been called a “quack.


Brian attended the world’s leading engineering institution, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he studied highly complex mathematics, engineering and physics, along with probability and statistics. He has also studied biochemistry and physiology. Brian’s various fields of study give him a unique systems perspective when applied to health and nutrition. Electrical engineering is an exact science.


In this episode, Brian and I talk about what inspired him to start scientifically looking at how foods affect our bodies. First, Brian reveals how his wife developed type 1 diabetes. Plus, Brian explains why we need to stop eating four to six times a day and the fact that we cannot physically overeat fat. He also describes the reasons why we should never consume fish oil. Tune in!

[10:10] About Brian’s Wife

  • Brian’s wife developed type 1 diabetes.
  • Brian picked up a book to figure out what to do. He believes nobody, only science.
  • Science says one thing, and society is doing the opposite. Brian says more people need to be writing the science.


[12:50] You Never Build on the Past in Medicine  

  • In medicine, you don’t look into the past – it doesn’t exist; it all starts today. Medicine is looking at studies, not science. Studies are open to misinterpretation.
  • Ask your doctor what the metabolic pathway that causes your health issue is. Pathways are science. If your doctor doesn’t know the pathway, then don’t believe a word they say.
  • Brian uses science to talk about food.


[17:30] Solving Type 1 Diabetes  

  • Brian could not bring back a pancreas.
  • Stop eating 4-6 times a day; we are not meant to be a goat.
  • People who don’t know what they are talking about are putting others on an awful path.
  • The diabetes epidemic has to stop.


[19:45] Stop Eating Every 2-3 Hours

  • Brian has no idea why people think they need to eat every 2-3 hours.
  • Carbs are sugars. You get just as much fat eating complex carbohydrates.
  • The pancreas does not store insulin very well. If you eat six times a day, you blow your insulin reserve. The pancreas doesn’t know how to react to you eating so frequently.
  • Eating every two to three hours came from the food industry.
  • How much sugar is in your bloodstream? Less than a teaspoon. Brian double checked, and it still came back to one teaspoon. This is why exercise became a second job for some people, to burn off all the access sugar we are intaking.


[24:30] One Teaspoon of Sugar

  • If you eat carbs, you’ll be using the sugar when you exercise. However, you would rather your body burn the fat (unless you are running a marathon).
  • Most people quit their training program because it doesn’t work, and they are being told the wrong thing from their trainer.


[25:30] What Time to Cycle in Carbs

  • Early morning is the best time to eat carbs. You don’t want to eat carbs at night because your blood sugar will stay high all night.
  • For every ounce of carbohydrates you eat, you will need three ounces of water.
  • If you eat the carbs at night, most likely, you are not doing that much activity.
  • Make sure the carbs are good, get the bang for your buck.
  • You can add carbs later in the day if you are going to stay active. If you eat carbs and you feel horrible, you’ve overeaten.


[32:20] Eating Too Many Carbs

  • Your body wants it back to normal, so it needs to get the sugars out of the body.
  • Exercise your body to get rid of the sugar, or burn it by starving.
  • Brian says he doesn’t want to store it to begin with.


[34:00] Eating Fats and Protein to Excess

  • Brian says you can’t overeat fat because your body physically won’t let you.
  • Your appetite will eventually go away, and you will no longer want to eat anything else.
  • To get no carbohydrates is virtually impossible. If you eat just fats and proteins, none of that protein is going to fat.
  • 58% of a steak is water after it’s cooked. 70% of that steak is burned up in digestion. Most people don’t know this and have never seen it in writing.


[36:30] Eating Steak with Ketchup

  • You’ve introduced carbohydrates when adding ketchup to steak.
  • You can have some carbs; you don’t need zero. For instance, if you want to have a sandwich, have one slice of bread.
  • Carbohydrates are very cheap and inexpensive. Fats, proteins, and cheeses are expensive.


[38:00] How to Gain Fat Faster

  • Fat does nothing on its own.
  • Minimizing carbs is always the answer. The average person can be just fine with minimum carbs.
  • Do not have a high carb meal after a fast. The smartest thing you can do is a steak coming off of a fast. Do not eat anything with carbohydrates.


[42:00] Never Use Vegetable Oil or Fish Oil

  • Smoke 2 packs a day for 28 years, how many people will develop lung cancer? 16% of people will develop lung cancer.
  • If you give processed oil to people, most people will develop heart conditions.
  • Fish oil goes rancid immediately. Dermatologists don’t have a clue why skin cancer rates aren’t going down. Sometimes, dermatologists will even prescribe fish oil to their patients to clear acne.
  • Fish oil destroys your immune system. Brian doesn’t even know what to say.
  • The most pristine fish oil in the world, in moderation, is still wrong. Fish oil doesn’t help anything; it fails at everything!


[52:40] Organic Supplements  

  • Organic isn’t better because of more vitamins; it’s because they lack a negative.
  • Many supplements will have carcinogens in them. If we take carcinogens over a long period of time, we will end up with severe health problems.
  • You want more Omega-6 in your supplements.


[57:15] Diet is More Important Than Exercise

  • You don’t want your appetite going through the roof.
  • With carbohydrates, you can’t exercise enough. You don’t start burning fat right away. At the tail end of a workout is when we will start burning fat.
