PEP 80: Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss: 3 Ways Intermittent Fasting Can Help You Lose Weight
While intermittent fasting has gained mainstream popularity over the last 10 years, it's something that is ingrained in our DNA since the beginning of time.

While it was a survival mechanism in hunter-gatherer times, we can use it as a THRIVAL mechanism modern day.

PEP 76: My Father's Story: Regaining Perspective & Remaining Grateful
Growing up, my father was my best friend. We did everything together. He coached all of my sport's teams, I delivered newspapers with him in the morning, and I even skipped high school prom to stay home with him and watch a movie. About 3 years ago, my father suffered his third stroke; this one, a brain stem stroke, leaving him fully paralyzed. In addition to being fully paralyzed, he requires a feeding tube to be fed and is unable to talk. While many people would become depressed in a similar situation, my father flipped the script. My father began to appreciate the little things in life that most of us take for granted, providing an model example of fatherhood and husbandry. In this episode, I share my father's story in hopes that we can all become more grateful for the little things in life. At the end of the day, the little things are actually the big things.

PEP 75: How to Optimize Fertility & Master Your Cycles
Did you know that being on hormonal birth control can alter who you are attracted to? Interestingly, hormonal birth control can alter your attractions and nudge you to be more attracted to people with similar genetics to you. From an ancestral health perspective, this is not good. From a survival point a view, we are naturally designed to be attracted to people with genes that are more different from us in order to diversify the genes of our offspring and increase the resilience to sickness of our children. Hormonal contraceptives can also leave you more prone to depression, low libido, anxiety, and weight gain by altering the delicate balance of your hormones (namely estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone). In episode 75 of the Primal Example Podcast, Joe interviews reproductive health practitioner Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, author of The Fifth Vital Sign. Lisa shares: Why the menstrual cycle should be viewed as the fifth vital sign Warning signs of an unhealthy period The long term effects of hormonal birth control How hormonal birth control alters our sexual attractions The top foods to increase fertility Foods to avoid to increase fertility Links: Lisa's book The Fifth Vital Sign Joe's talk on xenoestrogens at the Habits to Thrive health summit (FREE ACCESS TO THE FULL SUMMIT)
