EP298: Transforming Self Sabotage for Sustainable Weight Loss with Marc David
Intellectually understanding which foods are health supportive is not always enough to yield sustainable dietary change. Why? Because most of us fall victim to self sabotage. In fact, almost 95% of those who lose weight gain it all back within one year which is why in today’s podcast Eating Psychology Expert and best-selling author, Marc David, we break down how and why we self sabotage and how to transform that tendency. Here’s what you’ll learn… The cause of self sabotage How to overcome self sabotage The simple strategy to prevent binge eating The 8 eating archetypes and how to work with them for sustainable weight loss Common toxic nutritional beliefs (and how to overcome them) The little-known cause of weight loss resistance The best way to approach weight loss Why weighing yourself daily can be an issue How can we become “embodied” and why it’s beneficial How to redefine your relationship with food How to reduce your dependency on food as a sole source of pleasure And so much more! I completed Marc’s Eating Psychology Program back in 2012 and it was life changing and I sincerely hope this conversation is as impactful for you as his program was for me.

EP297: Myths and Truths about Heart Disease with Dr. Stephen Hussey
We’ve all heard dietary saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease - but what you might not know - is that the evidence for this belief is not as foolproof as we’ve been led to believe. And given that heart disease is still America’s #1 kill responsible for almost 700,000 deaths per year - understanding what you can do to prevent it is paramount. In this week’s podcast with the author of Understanding The Heart: Surprising Insights Into The Evolutionary Origins Of Heart Disease - And Why It Matters, Dr. Hussey, we explore 3 little-known (and preventable) causes of heart-based issues and the common misunderstandings keep us stuck. Dr. Hussey provides invaluable insights given his clinical experience and admitted obsession with the heart, but also because he experienced a heart attack and the shortcomings of current systems and strategies personally in 2020. This conversation was truly fascinating and I hope you walk away feeling as surprised and informed as I did. :) Here are some of my favorite takeaways: The link between intense exercise and heart attacks The best test for preventing heart attacks The biggest misconception around heart disease Why heart attacks occur without a blockage The #1 risk factor for heart disease The food most of us are eating that may be linked to heart disease Why collagen is important for the heart Lifestyle tips for heart disease prevention Why the sauna is especially heart healthy The supplement that can prevent clots as well as medications The animal-based nutrients that protect the heart The link between heart and dental health And so much more!

Children born to moms with poorly controlled blood sugar during pregnancy have a 6-19x increased risk of diabetes or obesity.

EP292: The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting with Cynthia Thurlow
One of the tools I’ve found most helpful for people during the holiday season is intermittent fasting (IF). IF is a powerful practice that requires you eat during certain windows of time and fast the rest of the time. In other words, you don’t have to change what you eat - just when. And its benefits include… Fat burning Reduced heart disease risk Improved memory Reduced caloric intake The best part? It’s free, flexible and simple and you can still reap the benefits even if you don’t eat perfectly. (which is why it’s one of my favorite holiday tools!) To learn all about IF and its beautiful benefits check out this week’s podcast with nurse practitioner and international speaker, Cynthia Thurlow. Here are some of the fascinating takeaways… The benefits of intermittent fasting Cynthia’s morning routine How intermittent fasting affects hormones How to reduce your risk of reproductive cancers The morning drink that improves IF’s benefits The supplements you can take while fasting Fasting benefits for mental health How to reduce cravings during fasting Why fasting might be hard for you (and how to make it easier!)

EP291: Healing Food Sensitivities with Steven Wright
The incidence of food reactions (allergies, intolerances, sensitivities) is on the rise. But what many people don't know is that it is possible to heal certain types of food reactions. (Celiac Disease and food allergies, being a notable exception:) When my son was younger he reacted to several foods like wheat, corn, dairy and sometimes even chocolate. And while the elimination diet did help us manage his symptoms - avoiding so many foods was stressful, especially as he started going to school. Thankfully, my dear friend Steven Wright (engineer, gut expert and founder of Healthy Gut) helped me heal my son’s food sensitivities from the root. Today, my son can essentially eat all foods except for those that contain gluten. This change was so miraculous for our family, that I invited Steven on to the podcast this week so that he can teach you all how to heal food sensitivities from the root. Here are some of the fascinating tidbits we cover: What causes food sensitivities? The difference between food sensitivities and food allergies 3 little known reasons the incidence of food reaction is rising Why PPIs can be dangerous Why stomach acid is not the enemy The most common food reactions 3 issues that underlie food sensitivities The incredible importance of short chain fatty acid (and how to find them) Why food elimination diets are not enough The 4 steps for healing food reactions The best supplements for healing food sensitivities How to prevent food allergies and sensitivities in kids And so much more!

EP290: How to Fast Like A Girl with Mindy Pelz
Did you know that, as a woman, your cholesterol and blood sugar levels will be higher at certain times of your menstrual cycle? Which can not only affect how you feel and what you should eat, but may also affect whether or not you’re prescribed medication. Women are also stronger, smarter and calmer during certain periods of the cycle, and should eat more carbs and avoid fasting at other times. Sadly, because most health-based research has been based on men, most women never understand these important nuances. Which is why in today’s podcast with bestselling author, keynote speaker, nutrition and functional health and fasting expert, Dr. Mindy Pelz, we talk all about why women MUST approach their health differently and how to customize your diet and lifestyle to leverage your hormone-centric advantages. Here are some of the fascinating takeaways: How cholesterol levels change during your cycle Why glucose levels are higher at certain times in your cycle Is higher cholesterol dangerous for women? A little-known underlying cause of high cholesterol in women The negative impact of statins on the brain What women MUST know to fully understand their health When you are the strongest and most capable during your cycle When to eat more carbs during your cycle The hormone that protects your brain What to eat at different parts of your cycle What a hormone feast is and how to do it When you should always avoid alcohol The 4 components of a fasting lifestyle When to do a carnivore diet and when to eat more veggies When to use the sauna, red light and cold therapy during your cycle Hyperbaric oxygen and its utility for healing hormones And so much more!

EP286: Seed Oils: History, Science and Negative Health Impacts with Tucker Goodrich
Today many of us understand that processed foods, excess carbohydrates, and gluten (for certain individuals) may contribute to ill health. But what is not as well known is that omnipresent seed oils (cottonseed, corn, soy, canola, etc.) may also be playing an important role in weight gain and disease. Seed oils are thought to be heart-healthy because they lower cholesterol, but clinical trials have also revealed that replacing saturated fats with seed oils may have deleterious health consequences. Tune in for all the juicy details and why upgrading your cooking oils may be one of the best dietary changes you can make with expert, Tucker Goodrich! Here are some of the fascinating tidbits we cover: The difference between seed oils and fruit oils What makes seed oils fragile and dangerous The 2 ways seed oils cause obesity The problem with seed oils for children and nursing moms How to tell if a seed oil has gone rancid The type of cancer you can get from frying seed oils The most fattening foods in the American diet Why Tucker believes seed oil research is deceptive The two mechanisms by which seed oils cause obesity How seed oils give us the munchies Why seed oils may be more dangerous than excess carbs Which is worse in animal trials: trans fat or seed oils?

EP285: The Most Nutrient-Dense Foods in the World & The Dangers of Micronutrient Deficiency with Ty Beal
Approximately 1 out of 3 women of reproductive age in America are suffering from a nutrient deficiency that can lead to fatigue, immune dysfunction, rapid aging and an increased risk of disease. And while we’re often told a plant-based diet is the best diet for health - Dr. Beal, the guest of this week’s podcast and a global nutrition researcher, found that animal foods (organ meats specifically) are actually the richest sources of nutrients that most people are deficient in. His research also found that refined grains, which most Americans consume copious amounts of, are the least nutrient dense. Which is clearly one reason nutrient deficiencies are rampant even in developed countries. Tune into this week’s podcast to learn: ✔︎ The nutrients many of us are deficient in ✔︎ The prevalence, consequences and causes of nutrient deficiency ✔︎ The most nutrient-dense foods in the world ✔︎ Why fortified nutrients are different than whole food versions ✔︎ The problems with most nutrient density rating systems (Food Compass) ✔︎ The dangers of vegan diets for kids ✔︎ And so much more!

EP282: Carbohydrates, Vegetable Oils and the Silencing of Dr. Fettke
In 2014 Dr. Gary Fettke, an orthopedic surgeon in Tasmania, was reported to the medical board for suggesting his diabetic patients reduce their sugar intake despite sound scientific evidence and clinical experience to support his recommendations.

EP281: Why We Vilify Meat and the Truth About Our Nation’s Dietary Guidelines with Belinda Fettke
We’ve all heard the misguided message that meat consumption is killing us, but what you might not know is that these beliefs originated from religion, rather than good science or historical evidence. In fact, Dr. John Harvey Kellog originally created cereal as a meat alternative because he believed it would reduce sexual desires in kids. Not to mention there has never been a truly vegan culture. Which is why in this week’s podcast with researcher Belinda Fettke we delve into the surprising origins of our nation’s Dietary Guidelines and the war on meat. Belinda’s husband, Dr. Gary Fettke, an orthopedic surgeon in Australia, was reported to the medical board in 2014 for recommending his diabetic patients reduce the sugar in their diet. This attack prompted Belinda to dig into WHY the science on the benefits of low carbohydrate diets was being ignored. What she found was that it wasn’t really about science at all. Tune in now to learn all about the surprising origins of our war on meat and share this podcast with anyone you think needs to hear it! Here are some of the fun facts you’ll learn about… Why the first meat alternative was created Why “plant-based” does not equal healthy The role of religion in our nation’s dietary guidelines Who was behind the attacks on Dr. Fettke The flaws in the Eat Lancet report The relationship between the Coke and religion The vested interests in the “eat less exercise more” message And much more!

EP280: Eating Psychology & Breaking the Dieting Cycle with Marc David

EP279: The Dangers of Glyphosate with Dr. Stephanie Seneff
We’ve all heard about the controversy surrounding glyphosate, Roundup’s main ingredient. In 2015 The International Agency for Research on Cancer concluded glyphosate may possibly cause cancer in humans. Thousands of lawsuits have also been filed against Bayer, the maker of Roundup, and in 2018 a groundskeeper, diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, was awarded $289 million. Yet, the EPA and FDA deem glyphosate safe, which is why it can still be found in our food and many paleo staples. Thankfully, Dr. Stephanie Seneff Ph.D., a senior research scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, author, and glyphosate expert is on this week’s podcast to cut through the controversy. We discuss the research regarding glyphosate’s safety, how glyphosate exerts its toxic effects, foods most often contaminated with glyphosate (I think this will surprise you!), and what we can do to help our body detoxify. You do NOT want to miss this episode! Here are some of the other interesting tidbits we’ll cover… Simples ways to detox glyphosate The most common foods contaminated with glyphosate The link between glyphosate, autism and neurodegenerative disease How glyphosate affects gut microbes and immune health How glyphosate affects mental health How glyphosate affects sleep The link between reproductive issues and glyphosate The link between vitamin D deficiency and glyphosate Why collagen is particularly vulnerable to glyphosate’s destruction The animal products most often tainted with glyphosate The difference between non-GMO and organic Simple ways to improve immune health 3 ways you to reduce glyphosate in food and community And so much more!

EP278: The Nutritional Differences in Conventional vs. Pastured Meat with Fred Provenza
A recent human trial demonstrated that eating wild meat (kangaroo) caused lower levels of post-meal inflammation than eating conventionally-raised beef. In other words, how the animal was raised may have affected the level of inflammation in the body after eating it. When people ate wild meat they had lower levels of inflammation and when they ate meat raised in confinement, they had higher levels of inflammation. And while we don’t yet know exactly why this happened, Dr. Fred Provenza, acclaimed author, professor and researcher believes it may have a lot to do with underrated, yet powerful nutrients called secondary compounds. In fact, though you don’t hear much about them, secondary compounds have been shown to… Reduce inflammation Provide antioxidant protection Protect against cancer Improve mood Reduce the risk of diabetes Help control appetite And so much more! Most importantly, the levels of secondary compounds change dramatically in meat depending upon what the animal ate and how it was raised. Tune in to this week’s fascinating podcast with Dr. Provenza to learn about the little-known, yet important, differences in grass-fed and conventionally raised meats and what it means for your health.
