He is also the host of The Canteen Podcast and co-author of the cookbook, Paleo Canteen: Low Carb On A Budget.

Dr. Rachel Brown is a Consultant Psychiatrist in the UK who specializes in metabolic health. She graduated from Edinburgh University in 2003 and has worked in the field of psychiatry since 2004. She is a Nutrition Network Advisor and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner. She also holds a Master degree in Medical Laws and Ethics and is involved in ongoing research into ketogenic diets and mental disorder. Dr. Brown is an advocate for therapeutic carbohydrate restriction and dietary modification to address underlying metabolic dysfunction and gut dysbiosis as underlying causes of mental disorder, as well as other lifestyle measures for optimising health.

In this conversation, Brian, Ally, and Dr. Rachel talk about Ally’s mental health journey, Dr. Rachel’s personal health journey, Ally and Dr. Rachel’s health coaching, metabolic psychiatry, sugar addiction, the mechanistic and emotional aspects behind a poor diet, meditation for anxiety and self-understanding, the mental component of successfully dieting, diet tailoring, the benefits of exercise for mental health and metabolic health, and Ally’s recent experiment with fast food.
