You know the episodes of CSI or Criminal Minds where the crossover happens? One minute you’re in Vegas, the next thing you know the crew are headed to Miami to link up with the spinoff team? This edition of Ken On Food is a little like that.
Since November 2019, I’ve been working with the Urban Gym team on UR Podcast. Each month we speak to great names in the world of business, sport, wellness, coaching, fitness – people from all walks of life, all with a story to share.
The latest edition of the podcast, recorded over the May Bank Holiday weekend, has a strong food focus, so we’re sharing it here as well.
In this edition of Ken On Food you’ll hear myself and Urban Gym’s Andy Murphy chat with plant-based consultant gastroenterologist Dr. Alan Desmond on the ins and outs of a whole food plant-based diet.
By that, I mean the kind of diet and approach to nutrition that means getting the calories and macros you need from fresh fruit, vegetables, legumes, grains – no junk food, no processed food, no meats, fish or dairy. We look at what the plant-based approach entails and marry it up with medical data in relation to gut health.

If you, or someone you know, suffers with IBD, IBS, Crohn’s Disease or other digestive issues, you may find this a really helpful listen.
It’s the kind of conversation that could have gone on for another hour so we may have a catchup down the line.
