YNP 359: Stay Out of the No Results Zone
You are stronger than you think that you are. I see so many people at the gym training with a resistance that is obviously not challenging for them and working within a repetition range that is NOT difficult. Recently, I took my girlfriend to workout for the first time and it was clear to me that despite working with trainers in the past, she had mostly stayed within the "no results zone". The no results zone is where you have several more repetitions left in the tank, but you stop for no apparent reason. People stay in the no results zone, because they don't know how strong they really are. So they avoid grabbing more weight or continuing to do repetitions to the point of fatigue. Tune in to today's episode as I talk about this concept more and why pushing past the no results zone will have a broad impact on your life.

YNP 356: Revisiting the Organic Food Discussion...What Are The Proven Benefits of Organic over Conventional?
There is a lot of debate around the organic versus conventional food discussion. On one side of the fence many health practitioners strongly suggest that you HAVE to go all organic all of the time to be healthy. While on the other side, other practitioners say there is no benefit to going organic. Just like with everything in nutrition, this discussion is not that simple and it deserves a more lengthy discussion and examination of the evidence. Today on the show, I am going to review some of the research that looks at the differences between organic and conventionally grown foods and give you some practical tips for making decisions about when to go organic and when you might just want to save your money.

YNP 354: Why You Probably Don't Need to Cut Gluten From Your Diet Forever
Honestly, the gluten free craze has gotten out of hand and the information surrounding the negative health effects of gluten consumption is often exaggerated. In the functional medicine space most experts are telling everyone that they need to avoid gluten completely forever because it is going to cause leaky gut and autoimmune disease, but what evidence is this based on? Do you really NEED to avoid gluten to be healthy? Tune in to today's episode of the show to learn more. If you enjoy the podcast, I would really appreciate if you take a minute and leave a rating/review and share the knowledge with others who can benefit from it.
