Fundamental Health with Paul Saladino, MD

Jun 2, 2020

The second edition of The Carnivore Code (new cover and index!) is available for pre-order now! release date is August 4th 2020 in ebook, print, and audiobook formats. 

In this episode of the podcast I review my recent CGM (continuous glucose monitor data) from 3 weeks of recording with Kara, a dietician from These guys were kind enough to provide me with CGMs for this experiment but this is not a sponsored episode. I strongly believe that getting a CGM from any company will provide you with tons of data you can leverage in the future toward better health. If you want to check out Nutrisense, the company I used, you can find them at and use CarnivoreMD as a promo code for some $ off your CGM direct to consumer (no prescription needed).
