    Dr Lori Shemek |How Inflammation Is KILLING YOU, Causing Weight Gain, & Ways To REDUCE IT TODAY! KKP: 432

    Today, I am grateful to have here with me, a pioneer in creating global awareness of low-level inflammation and how it is the underlying cause of most illness, disease, faster aging and weight gain, Dr. Lori Shemek. She has been sending out the message about inflammation long before it was a buzz word. Dr. Lori has uncovered the pathway to the core cause of weight: inflamed fat cells that not only promote unwanted excess weight gain and belly fat, but poor health as well. Lori Shemek is a Nutrition and Weight Loss expert, a best-selling author and specializes in weight loss resistance. She has helped many people to once and for all.. lose the weight and feel better fast. She shows people how to spot sneaky foods that create weight gain, to kick sugar addiction to the curb, and shift from eating the wrong foods to the exact foods that burn fat. Dr. Shemek is an award-winning, bestselling author of How To Fight FATflammation!; The Ketogenic Key; Beginner's Guide to Intermittent Fasting and Fire-Up Your Fat Burn!  She is a leading health and weight loss expert and also known as “The Inflammation Terminator.”  She has made it her mission to help clients lose weight and educate the public on the toxic effects of certain foods and lifestyle choices and how they create inflammation in the body resulting in weight gain. She is a leading authority on inflammation and its role in weight loss, preventing disease and optimizing health. The Huffington Post has recognized Dr. Shemek twice as one of the Top 16 Health and Fitness Experts, alongside such names as Dr. Oz and David Zinczenko, author of Eat This, Not That. The Huffington Post has also recognized her as one of the Top 35 Diet and Nutrition Experts. In this episode, Dr. Lori opens the show diving into her story. Dr. Lori's mom died at a young age from bad health. So, Dr. Lori made it her mission to help people make healthier choices. Dr. Lori chooses to focus on inflammation because you can prevent so many diseases and health issues if you can decrease your inflammation. Plus, reducing your inflammation will most likely result in weight loss. Also, Dr. Lori explores the best foods for keeping your inflammation down and reveals why you should avoid unstable fats. Tune in as we talk magnesium, carb cycling, and which type of lab tests you should order.

Text me +1 (786) 364-5002 [02:15] About Dr. Lori Shemek Lori's mom had a lot of health conditions. Her lifestyle choices drastically affected her life. She smoked cigarettes, was obese, had a horrible diet, and was under a lot of chronic stress. Unfortunately, her mom died at 36. Dr. Lori made it her mission to help people in the health realm. Lori created her own company to help people with their health. Many people feel like they don't have a choice when it comes to their health. However, that's far from the truth. 80% is a choice – we can change our gene expression.  [08:20] Why Dr. Lori Focuses on Inflammation Lori would read about inflammation at school – she realized that it was the key. If you can decrease your inflammation, then you can prevent so many diseases, ill-health, and weight gain. It is extremely beneficial to understand that inflammation is the reason for many health issues. [09:20] The Differences Between Acute Inflammation and Silent Inflammation We have three types of inflammation: Acute: we know the inflammation is there because it's uncomfortable, and it hurts. It's a cut on your finger, the terrible head cold, and the sprained ankle. This inflammation is great because it tells you that something is wrong with your body. Silent: the name suggests danger. It's silent; you don't know it's there. 75% of our country has silent inflammation, and they don't even know it. It's the core cause of illness, disease, faster aging, and weight gain. Fatflammation: fat cell inflammation is silent inflammation in the fat cells. The types of foods most Americans are eating is creating a body that is producing inflammatory molecules. When the fat cell gets bloated, it expands. The fat cell won't be happy. When the fat cell is not happy, it will act like it's sick or infected. Unfortunately, doctors will put a band-aid on chronic inflammation. [15:15] Foods For Inflammation Keto is an anti-inflammatory diet. Foods that will stop inflammation are things like omega-3. The critical foods for keto: Wild, fatty fish Seafood Berries Green tea The keto choices that we have are usually anti-inflammatory [17:15] The Problem With Consuming Unstable Fats on Keto Our cell membrane is thin, but it's essential for optimal health. The health of our cell membrane will determine your overall health. It allows nutrients to come in and out. The membrane is made of fat. Corn oil, vegetable oil, soil oil, canola oil, safflower oil, cottonseed oil are highly processed and highly refined. The body does not know what to do with these processed oils. The cell membrane uses fats that you're eating. So if you're eating vegetable oils, those fats will become your cell membrane. [21:40] The Relationship Between The Cell Membranes and The Mitochondria   The mitochondria are everywhere – they are crucial because they generate ATP, which is the energy that our cell needs to survive. Stop eating the types of foods that are ruining the cell membrane. Then, ensure that you have enough magnesium. Magnesium is crucial for your optimal health and weight. The mitochondria starts sending out signals of distress to your body. Then, your body will begin to inflame within the cell. Until we intervene and make healthier choices, then the inflammation will continue. [25:55] The Importance of Magnesium When you eat low carb, you are emitting a lot of fluids. With that fluid comes a lot of precious minerals like magnesium. Lori says that people should take magnesium as a supplement. Lori will take magnesium threonate. There are many types of magnesium. You can use a supplement that has nine different types of magnesium. If you're overweight, you are going to need more magnesium. If you have foggy thinking, then you're going to need more. 600 mg is excellent. [30:00] Getting In and Out of Ketosis When we go in and out of ketosis, we teach our bodies how to be metabolically flexible. Depending on what works for you, ramp up your carb intake one or two days a week. However, if you're losing weight, then stay strict on the keto diet. When the weight starts to fall off, your body will be able to handle the carbohydrates. Otherwise, you won't be prepared for carbs. [32:35] Benefits From Fasting Health is about ketosis. If you don't want to do the ketogenic diet, then fasting will provide ketosis. Lori will do 14-16 hours of fasting each day. During fasting, your body will reset. If you have insulin resistance, intermittent fasting is a fantastic way to repair your body. [39:15] About Dr. Lori's Favorite Lab Tests Test your vitamin D. If you have a low vitamin D level, then you have an inflammation problem. Your vitamin D levels should be at 70 or higher. CRP value is important; the lower, the better. 1 or 2 is ideal. Test your glucose. Even the healthiest keto foods might not agree with you. Use a glucose monitor to determine what will raise your glucose. AND MUCH MORE!

    Dr Latt Mansor | The Benefits of The Ketogenic Diet go Beyond Weight Loss, Exogenous Ketones Bio-Hacks & More! KKP: 431

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Latt Mansor. He holds a PhD in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics from the University of Oxford. Dr. Mansor also holds an MA (Columbia University) and BS (University of Nottingham) in Biotechnology. Latt brings over a decade of experience spanning academic research, health technology, and pharmaceuticals. As H.V.M.N.'s Research Lead, he oversees the scientific development and clinical applications for all H.V.M.N. products. In this episode, Dr. Mansor speaks about the inspiration behind his career in the health industry, which eventually led to his role as H.V.M.N.'s Research Lead. Dr. Mansor explains why 88% of Americans are metabolically inflexible and how it's related to elevated blood glucose and chronic inflammation. Then, Dr. Mansor talks about the importance of stress on the body and how to find the “sweet spot” when it comes to weight lifting and other hormetic stressors. Tune in as we chat about exogenous ketones, improving sleep quality, and how Ketone-IQ can help your recovery.   Download my free keto grocery shopping list: http://www.ketokampblueprint.com Get Keto Flex on Audible for Free (New Customers Only): https://adbl.co/36d6A24 Get Keto Flex on Audible here for current customers: https://adbl.co/3699lBm / / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  Paleo Valley beef sticks, apple cider vinegar complex, organ meat complex & more.

His father passed away from a stroke, and his brother passed away from a heart attack. Growing up, Dr. Mansor was overweight. During his undergrad, Dr. Mansor learned about physiology and metabolism. Plus, during college, Dr. Mansor started to exercise and actually enjoyed exercise for the first time in his life. With all this knowledge, Dr. Mansor realized he could be healthy without worrying about the diseases his family members suffered from.  [10:35] Why Are 88% of American Adults Metabolically Inflexible?  Your nerves have a higher risk of getting damaged when there is a constant increase in elevated glucose in the blood. Your body knows something is wrong with increased glucose, which triggers chronic inflammation. Metabolism is all about balance and moderation.  Every enzyme has a specific temperature range at which it's optimal.  When you activate inflammation constantly, there are bound to be adverse side effects.  [15:35] Life Is All About Challenges and Growth - Use Trial and Error To Find Your Sweet Spot  Life is all about giving yourself a challenge, adapting, learning, and growing. Next time you face the same challenge, you can tackle it in a much more efficient way.  It can be difficult to find the sweet spot when you are challenging yourself. Dr. Mansor uses a trial and error approach when it comes to knowing his sweet spot while exercising.  Your body will adapt. People want instant change; however, you need to give your body time to change.  [22:40] You Need To Train Your Body To Respond To Certain Conditions Effectively and Optimally  Metabolic inflexibility is your body's inability to switch from burning glucose to burning fat. When there is dysfunction, there is bound to be a deficiency, and there is bound to be wasted energy. Everyone thinks cortisol is the bad guy; however, you need cortisol to function.  The goal is not to shut down whatever is related to chronic disease. Instead, you want to train your body to respond to specific conditions effectively and optimally.  [30:20] Exogenous Ketones Are a Source of Energy and Can Help Lower Your Hunger Hormones Ketones are fuel for you to create energy.  There are still calories with exogenous ketones.  You won't lose weight if you have too many calories and are not exercising.  Ghrelin is the hunger hormone. Ketones can help lower that hunger hormone. [36:05] Exogenous Ketones Are Useful For Getting Back Into Ketosis  If you are following a ketogenic diet, you may not need exogenous ketones. However, do you have a hard time getting back into ketosis? If you fall out of ketosis, exogenous ketones can be a helpful way for you to get back into ketosis. Exogenous ketones are also a great tool to use before exercising.  [43:20] The Brain Doesn't Metabolize Glucose As Efficiently After A Traumatic Brain Injury  Dr. Mansor researched how ketones can be a therapeutic intervention to treat traumatic brain injury. Within 48 hours, studies show hypermetabolism of glucose after trauma.  Some researchers think the body wants glucose for energy to repair.  Ketones can help give the brain another option to produce energy.  For some reason, the brain doesn't metabolize glucose as efficiently after a traumatic brain injury.  [55:55] Ketone-IQ Is A Useful Biohack To Improve Your Sleep and Recover Faster  A dose of ketones after a workout and a dose of ketones before sleep can be helpful for recovery.  Plus, ketones before sleep can improve sleep quality.  Ketone-IQ has been proven to support energy, focus, and endurance. Do not take ketones more than half an hour before bed.  Instead, take ketones right before you go to sleep.  AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode:  Check out H.V.M.N.: https://hvmn.me/ketokamp (use code: “KETOKAMP”) Follow Latt Mansor LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lattmansor/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/lattmansor Follow H.V.M.N.

The whole goal is to get Food Lies on Netflix.  Food Lies is all about the sordid history of our dietary guidelines, what we should be eating, and how to do it sustainably.  [15:20] Are Cows Really Causing The Climate Crisis?  There's always been methane coming from ruminant animals. Methane from animals is part of the natural system.  There's a huge diversion going on. 95% of emission problems are from other industries.  The fossil fuel industry extracts carbon from deep into the ground.  Big industry is controlling the narrative around methane and cows.  [23:30] All Animals Require Protein: What Happens When You're Not Getting Enough Building Blocks  All animals acquire food to get a certain amount of protein. If animals don't have enough protein in their food, they have to eat more food to get enough protein. The protein of the population has dropped dramatically. When you drop protein, you have to eat more calories as a result.  Protein isn't the answer for everything; you also have to consider nutrient density. [31:30] How Much Protein Should You Be Eating Every Single Day?  Eat a gram per pound of body weight or lean body mass. There isn't a downside to eating this much protein.  If you have a severe kidney problem, there's a chance you'll have issues with too much protein.  You'll have a problem if you're eating high protein and highly processed foods.  If your ideal weight is 130 pounds, consume 130 grams of protein.  [37:10] Does Eating Red Meat Cause Cancer? No, The Problem Is Processed Foods  Why is there a worldwide agenda against meat? Epidemiology can't show causation; it can only show correlation.  A famous study says that red meat causes cancer. However, it has a lot more to do with eating processed foods with processed meats. If you're eating a hot dog, you're eating a bun. If you're eating a steak, you're probably not eating a bun.  [40:45] Processed Food Companies Are Behind The Vegan Agenda  A massive conglomeration of worldwide processed food companies is pushing the vegan agenda.  The countries that eat little meat have 30-40% child malnutrition and stunted growth.  There's barely any profit margin in milk, eggs, fish, and fresh foods. That's why the vegan agenda is so popular because big companies can make huge profit margins on their products.  AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode:  Check out Sapien: https://www.sapien.org Food Lies: https://www.foodlies.org Nose to Tail: https://nosetotail.org/ KetoCon: https://www.ketocon.org/ketocon-2022/ (use code “KETOKAMP”) Follow Brian Sanders Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FoodLiesOrg/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/foodliesorg Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/food.lies/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/foodlies Get Keto Flex on Audible for Free (New Customers Only): https://adbl.co/36d6A24 Get Keto Flex on Audible here for current customers: https://adbl.co/3699lBm / / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  Paleo Valley beef sticks, apple cider vinegar complex, organ meat complex & more.

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me the President and CEO of AJ Consulting Company, Dr. Anthony Jay. Dr. Jay earned a B.A. with a double major in Biology and Theology from Ave Maria University in Naples, Florida, where he researched HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) inhibitors. This is a repeat episode which originally aired on April 19th 2021. After college, he continued to work with virus (lentivirus) in the context of Alzheimer's disease for the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs. Next, Dr. Jay earned his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Boston University School of Medicine, researching fats, hormones, and cholesterol. Dr. Jay has also worked for 3 years as a scientific researcher at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, researching stem cells, epigenetics, and infrared light. Currently, in addition to leading AJCCo, Dr. Jay is a bestselling author of Estrogeneration. Did you know that the water from our faucet is full of birth control? In this episode, Dr. Jay reveals how he found his passion for artificial estrogens. Then, we jump into the importance of getting sunshine every single day. Not only are there loads of mental health benefits, but the UV will help break up toxins under your skin. Then, Dr. Jay talks about cholesterol and all-cause mortality, optimal vitamin D levels, and sunscreen problems.

Text me +1 (786) 364-5002 [00:20] About Dr. Jay + His Interest In Artificial Estrogens Jay got interested in artificial estrogens way back in college. In college, they told him the water from the faucet was full of birth control. It opened up an entire can of worms. Jay started to recognize fake estrogen chemicals all over the place. So, he compiled a top ten list of these daily exposures and wrote the book You can get the book here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MRAFYZL/benazadi-20  [03:10] The Benefits of Getting Sunshine Every Single Day There are a lot of interesting genetic risks that are dependent on sunshine and basically fixed by getting out in the sun. Sunshine will help increase your body's metabolism. The sun will also help break down toxin removal. Laser removal of tattoos is literally zapping heavy metals. Those heavy metals are in big enough chunks that your immune system cannot clear them. Sunshine will zap the large chunks of heavy metals. Even if you don't have tattoos, the UV will help you break up toxins from under your skin. Jay's favorite benefit is that it increases your body's natural production of melanotan. Plus, sunshine will help combat seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Watch the video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Y-1fsJbd0A [12:25] An Intriguing Study! Total Cholesterol And All-Cause Mortality There's a study called: Total cholesterol and all-cause mortality by sex and age: a prospective cohort study among 12.8 million adults. You can check it out here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-38461-y The research is very clear about optimal levels for total cholesterol. When you get above 200 on your cholesterol, doctors will tell you that you need statins as soon as possible. Jay takes the prescriptions and then throws them out. However, if your blood sugar's above 85, fasted, that's a threefold higher risk of heart disease. Anything above 85 is not considered optimal. Americans will come in at 95, and a cardiologist will ignore that. [16:30] The Optimal Ranges For Your Vitamin D Levels 30 – 70 or 30 – 100 are optimal ranges. The average American is at 30. As soon as you get below 50, you see associations with health issues. For instance, people will suffer from gut issues, chronic fatigue, and depression with those levels. If you are at 200, there is some risk of calcifying your arteries. Keep it between 50 and 100 for optimization. Getting in the sun will bump your levels up to 70 or 80. [19:50] The Issues With Sunscreen - How Safe Is Sunscreen? The main ingredient is oxybenzone. It's a manmade chemical, and it acts like estrogen in your body. You do not want to rub it on your skin. After one application of sunscreen, oxybenzone levels were above the government's safety levels even one week later. The government limits are absurd, anyway! Estrogen chemicals don't kill the cells because they act like estrogen. It will do a lot of weird things to the cell instead. Zinc is an excellent alternative for sunscreen. Check out the products that Dr. Jay uses: https://www.ajconsultingcompany.com/whatiuse.html [24:25] Dr. Jay's Favorite Ways To Optimize Your Immune System   The best way to optimize your immune system is to sleep. Most people are sleep-deprived. Jay will get an hour and a half of deep sleep and an hour and a half of REM sleep. In college, Dr. Jay would sleep three hours a night. He would brag about it! Infrared lights will help you sleep way better. Also, the colder the bedroom, the deeper sleep you will get. Intermittent fasting will also help with your immune system. That way, your cells can take out the trash. Sunshine is another way to improve your immune system. Don't forget to get your skin in the sun – take those shirts off! [36:45] Why You Might Want To Think Twice About The Covid Vaccines When researchers do all these studies for pharmaceutical companies and come out with a drug, they don't actually have to release that study. When someone has an adverse reaction to a drug, the company has to release the study. With vaccines, the companies do not have to release the studies. So, the general public has not been able to see the vaccine study. We cannot see the study on the vaccine; that's a red flag. Also, this vaccine is very experimental. If the chemicals in these vaccines were in cleaning products, we wouldn't use them. [42:20] Unfortunately, The Vaccines Could Be Manipulating Your Epigenetics These vaccines could be messing with our epigenetics. There's a cool epigenetic study where they actually use electricity and zap rats every time they smell cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms smell good, but the zap gave them an aversion to the blossoms. The offspring of the rats would have a fear response to cherry blossoms. Epigenetics is super powerful.   [45:30] Covid-19 In America: It's Time To Wake The [BLEEP] Up! The only positive lining in this whole Covid thing is it's woken a lot of people up to how much shenanigans goes on behind the scenes. Sadly, scientists are manipulating data. You pick your own peer reviewers – it is easily manipulated. You saw the same thing with the manipulation of Covid numbers. People should have the freedom to get the vaccines, and they should have the freedom not to get the vaccine. We should never blindly accept anything that comes out of pharmaceutical companies. [51:50] How Well Do Face Masks Even Work? Herd Immunity For The Win! If you wear the wrong type of face masks, it can disperse the droplets even more. N95 mask will help people with autoimmune conditions. In fact, they should give them away to those people. Everyone else should not wear masks. We want herd immunity! Herd immunity works, and it's successful. AND MUCH MORE!

[05:45] How to increase your ketone levels [13:20] What to do if you aren't losing weight on a ketogenic diet [17:50] Ways to gain weight when following a ketogenic lifestyle [24:25] Don't forget about bile: how to support the liver [36:50] Does eating zero-calorie foods mess up fasting?

How to increase your ketone levels What to do if you aren't losing weight on a ketogenic diet Ways to gain weight when following a ketogenic lifestyle Don't forget about bile: how to support the liver Does eating zero-calorie foods mess up fasting? Should I Do Keto If I Don't Want To Lose Weight? Yes, you should do keto even if you don't want to lose weight. Keto is excellent for your brain and cognitive performance; keto helps you be productive and resilient. In fact, ketones can cross the blood-brain barrier and give you an alternative fuel source. If you're never making ketones, you deprive your cells of 50% of your body's fuel source. In addition, keto is great for longevity, anti-aging, and lowering inflammation in the body. It's a great tool whether you want to lose weight or not. Many people come to keto primarily to lose weight. However, they stick with keto because they love the other health benefits they see from the lifestyle. I Can't Get My Ketones Above .5, What Am I Doing Wrong? First, you're not doing anything wrong. Maybe you can change your approach. When it comes to ketones, higher doesn't necessarily mean better. You don't want high glucose, so why would you want high ketones? .5 is great! That means you are burning fat instead of sugar - congratulations! However, if you want to raise your ketones, fasting is a great way to get those numbers up. Also, MCT oil has been proven to raise ketone production. Add MCT oil to your coffee or tea. Lastly, about 30% of MCT is in goat and sheep dairy. Overall, it's important to remember that you should pay attention to how you're feeling rather than what your ketone levels are. What Should I Do If I'm In Ketosis, But I'm Not Losing Weight? Weight loss is a worthy goal; you should want to get healthy by reaching your goal weight. However, the human body doesn't always prioritize weight loss. In fact, losing weight is against our basic survival instinct. The body needs to get healthy and optimize its hormones first; as a result of these two things, the weight will come off. If you're struggling with weight loss, you should put your scale away. Now it's time to focus on the non-scale victories. Are your energy levels improving? How is your skin complexion? Are your clothes fitting better? Start taking pictures! The number on the scale is a liar because the scale will fluctuate for so many reasons. All in all, pay attention to how you're feeling and looking rather than the number on the scale. Can You Gain Weight By Doing The Ketogenic Diet? Yes, you can gain weight by doing the ketogenic diet. If you prioritize your protein on a keto approach and have a caloric surplus, most likely, you will gain weight. Increasing your calories is going to help put you in a growth place. Some ketogenic bodybuilders put on tons of muscles. You have to be strategic regarding proteins, calories, weightlifting, and quality sleep. If you want to gain weight, you can definitely make it happen on a ketogenic diet. While on the other hand, will you gain weight if that's not your goal? Yes, it can happen. If you're overeating fat, then you can gain weight. Remember, your body can get fat from dietary fat or the fat on your body. How Can We Support The Liver? Symptoms are such a blessing and a gift from the body. A symptom means something is going on that we need to explore. Symptoms are trying to tell you something and may be telling you to support the liver. The liver produces bile. Bile is needed for detoxification and breaking down fats. When you're increasing your healthy fats, but your liver is sluggish, you can't produce the proper bile flow to break down the fats. Sluggish bile is one of the reasons why people will feel worse when they try the keto diet. Apple cider vinegar is terrific for liver and fat loss. Coffee, arugula, dandelion greens, dandelion teas, lemons, and limes are great ways to support the liver as well.

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Sylvia Tara. She holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry from The University of California, San Diego, and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. This episode originally aired on March 1st 2021. She was a healthcare management consultant with McKinsey & Company and has worked for the world's largest biotechnology companies. After an extended battle with fat, Dr. Tara became fascinated with its resiliency and embarked on a mission to better understand it. This book culminated in years of research and interviews with physicians, patients, and leading scientists. The Secret Life of Fat will forever change how you think about this misunderstood organ. Dr. Sylvia Tara is the author of the book, The Secret Life of Fat. This new book brings together historical perspective and cutting-edge research to reveal fat's true identity: an organ critical to our health. In this episode, Dr. Sylvia Tara reveals the inspiration behind her fat research. We usually think fat is simply storing calories. What most people don't know is that fat serves many purposes. Also, there are different types of fats. We dive into everything you need to know about fat, including what's vital about leptin and adiponectin. Later, we discuss the difference between men and women when it comes to fat loss. Plus, we talk about which types of exercises will be critical on your health journey.  Get Dr Sylvia Tara's Secret Life of Fat book here: https://amzn.to/3n2HSqn / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off. [00:30] About Dr. Sylvia Tara Sylvia gains weight really easily. Her whole life, she watches people eat whatever they feel like, drink whatever they want, and not gain any weight. So, Dr. Sylvia decided to understand fat once and for all. She went on a big expedition to really understand fat. She wanted to know why she would gain fat easier than other people. The Secret Life of Fat is based on all this research! We think of fat as storage for calories; however, it's so much more than that. [02:25] What Is Fat? Fat is a complex endocrine organ that has multiple functions: Storing calories. Producing leptin – which has a great effect on our brains, our bones, and multiple organs. Creating adiponectin – which has a lot of impact on where our fat is stored. [03:25] What You Need to Know About Leptin Our fat produces this hormone called leptin. It's the biggest producer of leptin in the body, and fat releases it into the bloodstream. Once leptin goes to the bloodstream, it goes to your brain; it'll tell your brain that you're overall satisfied. Basically, the brain will know that you are good, there's enough nutrition in the world, and you are okay. Leptin will also communicate with your muscles. It tells your muscles that it's okay to expend energy because you have enough nutrition. When we start to lose fat and begin to lose weight, say 10% or more, we reduce the amount of leptin we have. So, people who've lost 10% or more of their body weight respond enormously to food. Overall, once you've lost weight, you have to eat less than someone who's at that weight normally. It is why diets don't work! [07:15] The Role of Adiponectin Adiponectin is more or less telling fat where to go. When we have dietary fat, adiponectin will guide the fat in our bloodstream to the right parts of our body. So there's different kinds of fat, there's white fat. It's right under the skin, it's in your thighs, buttocks, arms, and it's actually the safest places to deposit fat. If you're going to have some fat, those are the places to put it. There's also visceral fat; it sits underneath the stomach wall. It is the more dangerous fat that's nestled against the internal pancreas organ. There's brown fat – it burns calories instead of storing calories. Plus, there is beige fat – it that can turn brown when we exercise. Overall, adiponectin will help guide the fat you eat and put it into the right place.  [09:20] How Exercise Can Help Adiponectin     It's around 20 hours of jogging a week to get adequate levels of adiponectin. That is when your body will start to shift around where your fat is. High-intensity interval training will also help raise your levels of adiponectin. You have to exercise a lot before it starts to affect you. It's best to work with your diet and do some exercise. Don't rely on exercise alone! [11:10] How To Get More Brown Fat Brown fat is actually used to create heat. We have brown fat around our heart; we have it around the clavicle areas and our spines. Having brown fat around those important areas is critical. These areas need to be heated even when we don't have exposure to cold. Beige fat, which was discovered last decade, is the fat that can turn brown through exercise. The more you exercise, the more you can increase your levels of brown fat. Exposure to cold will also increase your brown fat. [13:45] Women Produce 33% More Ghrelin Than Men After Exercise Women are designed just to have more fat. There are many reasons for this: Fat produces estrogen. Fat is linked to our reproducibility. When women exercise, they have a different reaction than men. Women's bodies produce ghrelin after exercise, and it's a hormone that's released from your stomach. If you burn off 600 calories or so, women produce 33% more ghrelin than men. There's all kinds of dieting tips for women versus men because women are different. [17:30] How Women Can Lose Body Fat Women have to be really patient, and you have to understand where you are on the spectrum of fat. Everyone has an individual fat blueprint. You have to understand your fat, and you have to be really forgiving of yourself. Another issue with women is that they have something called dichotomous thinking. [22:05] The Role Of How To Use Intermittent Fasting For Fat Loss Our growth hormone peaks at night. So, fasting during the nighttime will benefit your body because eating mitigates growth hormone levels. You want growth hormones because it's a great way to burn fat. If you sleep adequately, you're increasing your levels of leptin, which means you're going to be a little bit more satiated the next day during fasting. [26:30] Strategies To Keep Insulin At Bay Fiber will bring down insulin. Eating higher protein diets, lower carbs, and obviously not a ton of sugar will also help keep insulin at bay. Fasting enables you to manage insulin, and it helps with insulin sensitivity. [31:35] The Role of Genetics In Fat Storage To manage your fat, you have to work harder if you're at a genetic disadvantage. Some people tend to have a much higher appetite because they have a certain variant of the FTO gene. [35:30] How Environmental Factors Affect Fat The Four P's: Pesticides Plastics Preservatives Parabens Overall, it's important to really watch what you eat and watch what you put on your body. Think about what's really in the food that you eat! [43:45] Testing Your Fat The best way to test your fat is a CT scan. Sadly, there is no easier way to find out.  [48:20] Correlation Between Stress & Fat Stress is linked to abdominal fat. Exercise can be a perfect solution for people to lower their stress levels.

After reversing his illnesses and transforming his physical and emotional well-being via a ketogenic lifestyle, Richard was dedicated to helping transform the health and lives of others by providing support and supplements. In this episode, Richard discusses his past health problems, including obesity, diabetes, fatigue, depression, and anxiety. He reveals how keto transformed his well-being and life. Then, Richard dives into why cholesterol isn't the enemy and how you can determine if your cholesterol profile is actually damaged or not. Richard digs deep into insulin and leptin and how to optimize these hormones. Tune in as we chat about the problem with insulin resistance and a simple test to tell if you are insulin resistant.

The worst part of Richard's health was his anxiety; he wouldn't be able to leave his house, car, or office. Richard never felt good enough to be around other people. Eventually, Richard realized that bread made his belly swell. So, he gave it up. Within 30 days of ditching bread, Richard lost 28 pounds. Starting keto has completely changed Richard's life; luckily, every factor of his life has improved. [26:20] Cholesterol Isn't The Enemy; In Fact, Cholesterol is Essential For Health Cholesterol is essential for life. It's imperative for cell formation, cell communication, nutrient absorption, nutrient transportation, and hormone production. The brain and the myelin sheath are made of cholesterol. Lacking cholesterol would be detrimental to your health. There is a massive miscommunication when it comes to cholesterol. LDL is proactive; it heals the body and repairs it. The two main contributing factors to heart disease are grains and seed oils. Seed oils do not help lower cholesterol. Reducing carbohydrates and seed oils is the best way to have healthy LDL. [35:00] Is Your Cholesterol Profile Damaged? Richard Explains Where Your Markers Should Be There's a simple way to see whether your cholesterol profile is damaged. Triglycerides are one of the most significant factors; aim for less than 0.5%. HDL should be greater than 1.5. The triglyceride to HDL ratio should be below one. You're in good shape if your cholesterol profile is around these markers. Remember, cholesterol is essential for life; every cell in the body is made of cholesterol. [39:45] You Can't Store Fat Without Insulin From Carbohydrates, Sugars, and Seed Oils We can't store fat without insulin. Insulin is secreted by the pancreas when we consume carbohydrates. Many people will eat carbs before going to the gym to have the energy to burn fat. However, when insulin is elevated, it tells the body to store fat. Eating carbs will make it almost impossible for us to burn fat for fuel. Insulin puts a biological lock on our fat stores and prevents them from leaving. Carbohydrates and sugars will increase insulin. Seed oils will also impact insulin; they cause insulin resistance. [42:40] The Foods You Eat Could Be Blocking Your Ability To Feel Full Leptin is a satiety hormone. It tells us that we have eaten and that we are full. Seed oils will block leptin. If you aren't feeling full, you will consume more food. Grains are high in lectins; they cause five times more fat storage than insulin. Lectins in grains will also block leptin. [49:55] Richard Reveals A Simple Test To Tell If You're Insulin Resistant As a world, we are insulin resistant. In fact, 95% of people are insulin resistant. Diabetes will start with food choices that began ten to fifteen years prior. There's a simple way to test if you suffer from insulin resistance. You have insulin resistance if you have an overhang over your pants, belt, or skirt. Restrict carbohydrates, and you will see a reduction in insulin levels. You don't need a myriad of medications to solve insulin resistance. AND MUCH MORE!

It is the overwhelming presence of toxins, unresolved emotional trauma, EMFs, etc., that breakdown the body's ability to fight cancer and eventually leads to the growth of a tumor and a cancer diagnosis.* Get Keto Flex on Audible for Free (New Customers Only): https://adbl.co/36d6A24 Get Keto Flex on Audible here for current customers: https://adbl.co/3699lBm / / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off.

However, she realized that prescriptions would treat her patients and not fix them. Because of the collateral damage from DES, Dr. Connealy has always been focusing on her health. She has had a lot of medical interventions as a result of DES. Doctors are not teaching and informing patients that what you eat matters. The single determinant of health is what is on your fork. “We need to start educating the world on how to take care of themselves.” -Dr. Connealy [10:00] The Truth About Cancer For the last five years, Dr. Connealy has asked every patient about the first thing they have done since being diagnosed with cancer. 100% of patients said they changed their eating habits. Sugar and food are addictions. Unfortunately, people don't want to be strict with their eating program. Everyone grows up with cereal, so people tend to continue to do what we have always done. “The foundation of progress is discipline.” -Dr. Connealy The only way people make is a change is through pain. People know they are eating poorly, but they think that they can get away with it. “We are living in a nation of illness today.” -Dr. Connealy [17:05] How Long A Cancer Diagnosis Will Take Cancer starts with just one erroneous cell. The cell will begin to replicate itself. When the cancer cell becomes a tumor, that cell is ten years old. That means you had nine years of opportunity to check to see if you have cancer. With the technology that we have today, we know with a high accuracy rate if people have cancer. It is so much easier to prevent the illness from occurring. It does not necessarily take a symptom to know that you have cancer. Some people feel great and still get cancer. If you have a symptom, get checked by a conventionally trained doctor who knows modern medicine. [22:55] The Survival Rate For Chemotherapy The survival rate for chemotherapy is two percent. This statistic is for the people that don't change any sort of lifestyle. If you change your lifestyle, there will be a different percentage. “It's not a good idea to give bad statistics.” -Dr. Connealy We have to take everything that we know all over the world and collaborate to find the best non-toxic therapies to help every human being. [24:30] Testing To Determine Cancer Risk Connealy doesn't assume that 25-year-olds are healthy. There are too many 25-year-olds with cancer. Check your chemistry panel. 50% of the population has a condition called fatty liver. There's a 50% chance that the liver is elevated. Dr. Connealy is not concerned about cholesterol; it's the least of our problems. Make sure to get a thyroid blood test. If you have low thyroid, then you are at a higher risk for cancer. A hemoglobin A1c is a reflection of your sugar over 90 days. You want your DHEA levels optimal. hCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. This hormone can be a useful marker for women. Don't use one indicator. Look at the big picture. [33:45] Why You Are Vitamin D Deficient   There is so much going on environmentally that we are not absorbing vitamin D. Even people who play beach volleyball in California are vitamin D deficient. There are two supplements that everyone should take: vitamin D and oils. [41:30] About The Relationship Between Cancer and Sugar Cancer cells eat sugar. A PET scan is proof that cancer cells eat sugar. Some cancers eat more sugar, while other cancers eat less. Sugar is a massive problem; it is our enemy. The key to health is not to eat sugar. When you eat sugar, you are feeding potential cancer cells. Cancer cells have many markers. Most patients already know about this relationship between cancer and sugar. However, they usually just copy the traditions that they grew up with. People need to learn to be mindful of their actions. [46:30] The Benefits of a Keto Lifestyle With Fasting Getting off sugar is the most significant benefit of a keto lifestyle. Connealy suggests that people should fast when they are overweight. The least expensive thing you can do is fast. Fasting has been around for thousands of years. After fasting, many patients will see improvements in their tumors. Calorie restriction is the only way to slow down aging. Everything you breathe, eat, and drink will go through your body. Then, your body will rest and regenerate. Any kind of fasting is a good idea. [56:45] The Problems With Emotional Conflict and EMFs The time you are created, the first seven years are critical for emotional development. Emotional trauma is the number one thing that will cause disease. None of us know how to do self-reflection. Going to therapy was the best thing that Dr. Connealy did in her entire life. She is still learning and still practicing how to be an emotionally balanced person. Everyone has something going on in their life. Scientists are forewarning all of our governments about the dangers of EMFs. Every cell in our body can receive and transmit energy. As a result, we are receiving the energy fields from EMFs. EMFs are powerfully infecting our DNA. Unfortunately, there is no escaping it. The best thing you can do is to sleep in an electrical free bedroom. AND MUCH MORE!

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me Amanda Nighbert. She is a registered dietitian specializing in weight loss nutrition, a fitness enthusiast, and a working mom of two.  This is a repeat episode from September 2021.  Amanda is passionate about motivating, supporting, and educating people to meet their wellness goals. She has worked in weight loss for the past 19 years, helping thousands of people reach their wellness goals. Amanda is so excited to have the opportunity to work with even more people via her online programs.  She is an avid reader and feels that the science behind weight loss, diet, and nutrition is constantly changing. This rapid change can create confusion and frustration with the average person trying to be successful at weight loss. Amanda's goal is to bring the latest, cutting-edge strategies and techniques to her clients in the most concise and educational manner.   Amanda is a strong believer that dieting is temporary, something you start and stop. Therefore it is more important to focus on lifestyle changes to see long-term weight loss success truly. Amanda's goal is to teach her clients simple yet effective lifestyle changes they can make and easily sustain to see lasting results. Success does not have to be about perfection but rather more consistency. She believes in implementing strategies that work in the real world, with real people who lead real, hectic, and often crazy lives. First, Amanda speaks about why eating a fat-free diet doesn't work and how following that trend almost landed her on statins. Then, Amanda dives into the number one reason why dieters will always fail. We also talk about why intermittent fasting is excellent for weight loss. Eating before bedtime can be ruining your progress; so, Amanda gives tips on how to curb your late-night eating habits. Tune in as we chat about the importance of metabolic flexibility and why you're not losing weight from the advice of your registered dietician.

She ate low-fat, whole grains, and no eggs.  Her weight was healthy. Yet, her cholesterol was over 300.  The doctor prescribed Amanda statins at the age of 32. Instead, Amanda wanted to try and fix the problem on her own.  So Amanda read the book The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won't Prevent Heart Disease-and the Statin-Free Plan That Will. You can find a copy here: https://www.amazon.com/Great-Cholesterol-Myth-Disease-Statin-Free/dp/1592335217/benazadi-20 She realized that reducing inflammation would improve her numbers. After six months, she got her numbers under 200.  [07:35] The Number One Reason Why Dieters Fail The number one reason why people fail is the all-or-nothing mindset. We feel like we have to be perfect to make progress.  How to break your all-or-nothing mindset: Practice progress over perfection. Learn the power of resetting immediately. Always do something.  When someone can't do it all, then they choose to do nothing. Instead of trying to do it all, pick one thing to focus on for the week to come.  [14:00] Intermittent Fasting and Why Amanda Loves It For Weight Loss  Breakfast is not actually the most important meal of the day. It took Amanda ten years of being a dietitian to realize that.  There are actual physiological processes in the body that help us thrive in a fasted state.  It's effortless to be an intuitive eater. Time-restricted eating is not a diet. It's not about what you eat. Instead, it's all about when you eat.  Amanda loves intermittent fasting because it's flexible. You don't have to fast every single day.  Lastly, fasting is free, and it doesn't cost you any money!  [18:00] Fasting Before Bed: Tips To Stop Your Late Night Eating Habits  Drink herbal tea in the evening. Non-caloric beverages are also okay to drink before bed. You can also adjust your eating window.  If you prefer to eat more in the evening, then eat less in the morning.  Start with a 12 hour fast, then ease your way into a 16 hour fast.  [20:20] We Eat Way Too Much! Eat Until You're Full and Lose Weight For some reason, people want to graze all day long. The reason you are eating all day long is that you're not eating to fullness.  You can eat 700 calories during one meal and still lose weight.  People are scared of calories, fats, and carbs. At mealtimes, we are significantly undereating, which leads to more snacking.  Sadly, people are eating every hour and a half.  Finding six healthy things to eat throughout the day is impossible. Usually, the first three things you eat are healthy; then, the last three are not. Instead, we need to eat solid meals and stop snacking.  [24:30] Metabolic Inflexibility Is A Key Risk Factor For Covid-19 During Covid, the conversation should be focused on metabolic health. If we had true metabolic health, Covid wouldn't be such an issue. 88% of Americans are metabolically inflexible and unhealthy.  We should get outside and get vitamin D. Also, Americans need quality protein, healthy fats, and to go outside and walk.  Everyone's health has deteriorated significantly. We are now way more prone to any type of disease and virus. [28:00] Why You're Not Losing Weight From Your Registered Dietician  You're not losing weight because you are sitting all day long.  Sitting is the new smoking!  Taking a walk after a meal will result in lower blood sugar. That's the power of activity. When we eat and lay around, our blood sugar response will be much greater.  Another reason you aren't losing weight is that you are focusing on calories instead of macros.  Losing weight is all about blood sugar regulation. Carbs digest rapidly, so they leave you wanting more.  [40:20] Should You Avoid Carbohydrates For The Rest of Your Life?  The only right way to keto is to cycle. It's not healthy to be in ketosis forever. If you're fat-adapted, you will be able to curb your cravings. Plus, you'll be able to eat carbs and still feel fine.  People need to have an understanding of what a good carb level is for them. [44:20] Do You Need Electrolyte Supplementation On A Keto Diet? Electrolytes are your missing link. There's a huge power of sodium, potassium, and magnesium.  Without adequate hydration, you can't metabolize fat. Thirst and hunger are similar signals.  If you don't have enough sodium, potassium, and magnesium, you will feel weak and hangry.    AND MUCH MORE!

    Today we have Dr. Benjamin Bikman on the Keto Kamp Podcast. Dr. Bikman is a biomedical scientist, professor, and expert on insulin resistance. Dr. Benjamin Bikman studies diabetes and obesity, and much of what he focuses on is a seemingly obscure condition called insulin resistance. But it's, in fact, not very obscure at all. Half of all adults in the U.S. have insulin resistance. That means you could have it too, and you don't know it. What is insulin resistance? Why did Dr. Benjamin Bikman devote his career to studying something like this? Well, insulin resistance is essentially two things. First of all, some cells in your body aren't responding very well to the hormone insulin. Second, you have more insulin than you did before, a condition called hyperinsulinemia. Insulin resistance is at the root of virtually every chronic disease. If we go through the chronic diseases that are killing us today, things like Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's Disease, and certain cancers, what they all have in common is insulin resistance. To varying degrees, insulin resistance is either causing the problem or making it worse. Purchase all 7 challenge recordings! Special pricing: http://www.ketochallengerecordings.com  Who Can You Trust When It Comes To Experts In The Health Space?  If the person we're seeking to learn from uses derogatory language when speaking about those with whom they disagree, that is the sign of a petty person. Experts should have discussions politely and respectfully and acknowledge that there is room for disagreement. There ought to be a degree of skepticism that we apply to every authority. We should challenge that authority to some degree. There are people with Ph.D. degrees who we shouldn't trust. Overall, we should always be on our own journey to understand what is accurate and true.  A Basic Understanding of Ketosis  Ketosis is the state where blood ketones are elevated, but pH is normal. Every human has some amount of ketones, even if it's below the detection level on commonly used devices. When you're in ketosis, you will have a detectable level of ketones on a moderately used device and yet pH is not changing. Ketones have the potential to make the body more acidic. When someone's in ketosis, the amount of hydrogens coming off the ketone is relatively modest. Within the blood, there are numerous buffering mechanisms. That way, your body will defend its pH range. Overall, ketones are fat-burning products; when insulin is low, the body will burn fat at a high rate.  Ketones Are Energetic Molecules; Plus, Ketones Are Signaling Molecules Ketones are energetic molecules roughly similar to the calories you get from glucose. Plus, ketones are signaling molecules. If a ketone is being used as a fuel, it will come to a cell. Then the ketone will get shuttled into the cell through an MCT (monocarboxylate transporter). When the mitochondria have a lot of pressure to be burning molecules, they get the signal that they need more mitochondria. Fatty acids can have the same effect. When a cell is burning a lot of fatty acids for fuel, it will start stimulating mitochondrial biogenesis.  Why The Laws of Thermodynamics Are Misleading Regarding Weight Loss People are producing ketones and breathing out ketones, and urinating them out. Remember, ketones have a caloric value. Calories matter, but don't worry about them. Let the calories take care of themselves. Invoking the laws of thermodynamics in nutrition and human metabolism was one of the greatest tragedies in the history of human-relevant science. It absolutely misled us and made us demonize fat and embrace carbohydrates. Hormones matter at least as much as calories because hormones tell the body's cells what to do with the available calories.  The Problems With Metabolic Syndrome and Insulin Resistance  Metabolic syndrome used to be called insulin resistance syndrome. Insulin resistance is the single most common problem in the US and abroad. Plus, insulin resistance is relevant to virtually every chronic disease. Covid has only made metabolic problems worse. Luckily, keto and intermittent fasting can help lower insulin. Remember, there is no insulin resistance without elevated insulin. Lowering insulin is a perfect way to help the body become more sensitive to it. If no nutrients are coming into the blood, insulin starts running out of nutrients in the blood that it can store away. So, insulin comes down when nutrients aren't coming into the blood. Fasting is the best way to lower your insulin and reverse metabolic syndrome.  What We Talked About: [23:55] Who can you trust when it comes to experts in the health space?  [26:30] A basic understanding of ketosis   [34:40] Ketones are energetic molecules; plus, ketones are signaling molecules  [44:00] Why the laws of thermodynamics are misleading regarding weight loss  [49:00] The problems with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance  [1:06:15] Question and Answers  [1:18:15] Tip of The Day From Alina [1:23:15] The biggest takeaways from Dr. Ben Bikman  [1:26:15] Homework assignment for session 3   Resources From This Episode:  Text “CHALLENGE” to (786) 364-5002 The Keto Starter Kit: www.ketokampstarter.com VIP experience: www.ketokampvip.com Share on social media with the hashtag #KETOKAMPCHALLENGE Follow me on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thebenazadi LMNT: https://drinklmnt.com/ Keto-Mojo: http://ketokampmachine.com/ HLTH Code: https://ketokampshake.com/ (use code “ketokamp”) Kettle & Fire: https://www.kettleandfire.com/ (use code “ketokamp”) Why We Get Sick: https://www.amazon.com/Why-We-Get-Sick-Disease_and/dp/194883698X/benazadi-20 Dr. Bikman on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/benbikmanphd/ Dr. Bikman on Twitter: https://twitter.com/BenBikmanPhD Follow Keto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Get Keto Flex: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08YFM83DD/benazadi-20 *Some Links Are Affiliates* // F O L L O W ▸ instagram | @thebenazadi | http://bit.ly/2B1NXKW ▸ facebook | /thebenazadi | http://bit.ly/2BVvvW6 ▸ twitter | @thebenazadi http://bit.ly/2USE0so ▸clubhouse | @thebenazadi Disclaimer: This podcast is for information purposes only.

Social media is so superficial that it's challenging to post anything meaningful.  Instead, we should be falling in love with the right kind of media. Social media is making people anxious and bummed out.  [16:10] If You Want To Grow A Brand, You Need To Have A Podcast  If you want to create content for the rest of your life, start a podcast.  The problem with podcasting is oversaturation. Eventually, there will be more podcasts than there are listeners.  A podcast is something that you own. Whereas your TikTok channel isn't something that you own. This will be critical as we look toward the future of the decentralization of media. [19:45] How You Can Apply Keto Flexing To Your Life  Many people think that going hard is better. However, it's all about finding balance.  If you want to build muscle, then insulin is not your enemy, and neither is glucose. Whether you like it or not, you'll go back to eating carbs for one reason or another.  Being able to store carbs on the shelf is really important. You need to learn how to use and store all the different macronutrients, including carbs.  Remember, you can't eat 350 grams of processed carbs a day and expect to see results.  [27:00] Why Abel Loves Intermittent Fasting and How It Helps With Mental Strength  Abel loves how simple fasting is.  Fasting can mentally and spiritually build strength.  There are many ways to approach fasting. Abel got into fasting by pushing breakfast until later in the day.  We are taught that the more you eat, the more strength you build. However, Abel had to overcome that type of thinking.  Eventually, Abel started eating one meal a day.  Abel recommends reading The Warrior Diet: Switch on Your Biological Powerhouse For High Energy, Explosive Strength, and a Leaner, Harder Body: https://www.amazon.com/Warrior-Diet-Biological-Powerhouse-Explosive/dp/1583942009/benazadi-20. [33:35] Why Feasting Is Just As Important As Fasting   What we put in our bodies matters. Your eating can result in massive deficiencies or a relative abundance of multiple nutrients.  You can approach health in a way that is creative and fun.  Feasting is a way to nourish your body in a nutrient-dense way.  Try and make feasting as enjoyable and as high-quality as you possibly can.  [37:45] Waking Up In The Morning Is A Special Time To Reframe Your Thinking  Waking up in the morning is a sacred time. You should protect the brain state right after you wake up.  When Abel wakes up in the morning, he practices some self-defense against technology. Give yourself as much time before you jump on your phone, social media, or the news.  Write down your dreams when you wake up. This creative process is critical for reframing your day and your mind.  [41:55] The Inspiration Behind Wild Superfoods and Their Dietary Supplements Many people aren't going to go to the store all the time to buy high-quality proteins and high-quality greens.  Plus, having something that is shelf-stable in your home is a total game-changer for your health.  Also, shelf-stable proteins are great for camping, hiking, and emergencies.  That's one of the many reasons why Abel created Wild Superfoods.

    Melissa Bolona | How Bone Broth Can Improve Health, Fight Aging, and Boost Beauty KKP: 415

    Play Episode Listen Later May 27, 2022 58:51

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me Melissa Boloña. After finding herself in an unexpected wellness rut, actress and model Melissa Boloña turned to her sister for advice. The answer was simple: bone broth.  Melissa noticed an immediate difference ranging from better gut health and fewer cravings to beautiful, glowing skin. The problem? She couldn't find any local spots with tasty or convenient options. She then spent over six months testing out recipes in her own kitchen to create the flavorful and shelf-stable products you now know, Beauty & the Broth's gut-healthy broth concentrates. Rich in naturally-occurring collagen and made with convenience in mind— just for you. Now she's drinking two cups daily and doing all she can to spread the word about this whole-body, total-beauty elixir in a cup. Melissa spent years in front of the camera as a model and actress, gracing magazine covers and starring in more than 20 films. She's worked with the world's best makeup artists and sampled every top beauty product there is, yet still credits bone broth as her #1 beauty secret. After falling in love with broth and wishing there were more local spots to grab a mug of it, Melissa knew this was the business she had always wanted to create. In this episode, Melissa opens up about the struggles with her health including symptoms like constipation, IBS, brain fog, inflammation, and anxiety. Then, Melissa does a deep dive into bone broth and how it has helped her immensely in reversing all of her symptoms. Plus, bone broth has been a total game changer for her fine lines and wrinkles. Tune in as we chat all about Melissa's bone broth products, Beauty and the Broth, and what you can look forward to in the future from her company.  Keto Challenge Recordings - Special Offer: https://kka.mykajabi.com/offers/UxThDWSJ/checkout  Get Keto Flex on Audible for Free (New Customers Only): https://adbl.co/36d6A24 Get Keto Flex on Audible here for current customers: https://adbl.co/3699lBm / / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off.

Eventually, on an x-ray, they found out Melissa was so backed up with stool.  The doctors put her on laxatives and antidepressants.  Now, Melissa is passionate about health and researching what exactly is going on in the gut.  Melissa suffered from constipation, IBS, brain fog, inflammation, and anxiety even after high school.  [09:40] Melissa Reveals Her Favorite Benefits From Drinking Bone Broth   Melissa had no idea that brain fog was related to gut health.  Another great benefit of bone broth is collagen. The collagen in bone broth truly helped Melissa with fine lines and wrinkles. After a workout, Melissa gets super hungry and wants to eat everything in sight. Luckily, bone broth fills us with amino acids and essential nutrients. Plus, it curbs cravings, so it makes you feel very satisfied.  Also, bone broth gives you natural energy during the daytime and helps you sleep at night.  [15:00] Why You Should Try The Bone Broth From Beauty and the Broth   Beauty and the Broth: https://thebeautyandthebroth.com/ Her broths are shelf-stable, have no preservatives, and are in a concentrated format.  Because the broths are concentrated, you get the most potent and condensed down product.  All you need is eight ounces of hot water to make your broth.  [20:10] How Beauty and the Broth Is The Ultimate Cooking Hack  There are so many uses for beauty and broth. You can use the broths as a marinade, seasoning, or soup base.  Sometimes Melissa will marinate shrimp or vegetables with bone broth.  You can also pour it on leftovers to keep things from tasting dry.  [21:55] How Often Should You Be Drinking Bone Broth?   You should have at least one cup of bone broth a day.  Try doing this for at least the first two or three weeks.  Melissa saw the benefits of bone broth in just two weeks.  Once you start seeing the benefits, you can drink it around three times a week.  Remember, bone broth will not break your fast.  [28:30] What You Can Look Forward To For The Future of Beauty and the Broth This summer, Melissa is launching Beauty in the Bark, a bone broth for dogs.  Melissa samples all of the broths because they are human grade. Plus, they are working on a turkey recipe to launch for this holiday season.  Ultimately Melissa wants to get into skincare and use bone broth as a base.  The collagen in bone broth is smaller than those in face cream; it's perfect!  AND MUCH MORE!

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me Eric Reynolds. He uses a meat-based carnivore diet with minimal herbs and spices to recover from PTSD and drop the last of his extra body weight.  Eric was a cop with the Boynton Beach Police Department near West Palm when he got shot in the foot by an armed bank robber they were chasing, and he ended up killing the suspect in the process.  The whole incident left him in a pretty bad way, and he started to display many signs of PTSD.  He discovered the keto diet, and not only did his health improve drastically and all the excess weight melt away, but he found peace and tranquillity began to return to his life, and his symptoms of PTSD start to fade. He has since retired from the force and is now committed to helping other police officers get their health back and help them deal with similar problems to his.  He has established an organization called Keto-Five-0. In this episode, Eric opens up about the shooting that changed his life while working at the Boynton Beach Police Department. As a cop, Eric was overweight, unhealthy, and experiencing signs of PTSD. After learning about a ketogenic lifestyle, Eric lost weight, increased his energy levels, and improved brain function. Tune in as Eric speaks about the inpsprition behind his Keto Five-O resources and how he helps improve the lives of active and retired police officers.

When Eric found the car, he got into a car chase.  After the car got into a crash, the suspect started shooting; Eric was shot, and the suspect was killed.  Down the road, Eric started to show signs of PTSD.  As a cop, Eric was unhealthy and overweight. Most of the time, cops are eating fast food.  [17:55] How Eric Learned About Keto and What Happened When He Tried The Carnivore Diet  After the shooting, Eric had a rough time getting back into the swing of things.  Eventually, Eric cut out beer and sweets to try and lose weight. He lost ten pounds.  Eric met someone who lost fifty pounds by doing keto.  The first resource Eric went to was Ketogenic.com: https://ketogenic.com/ Keto resources helped Eric with meal prep; he was down another eight pounds in two weeks.  By following a carnivore diet, Eric got his weight down to 176 and could actually see his abs.  [23:30] How Eric Became The Keto Five-O Guy and His Passion For Nutrition At work, Eric would get a lot of questions about how he lost so much weight. So, Eric would refer people to The Magic Pill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6duhSjYyj0k Then, some of Eric's peers started to lose weight themselves. Eventually, Eric started a Facebook Group. You can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ketofiveo/. Doctors were pushing statins on Eric, which is one of the reasons why he started to study and do research.  He loves helping people get off medicines and find the best nutrition plan possible.  [26:50] How Eric's Health Improved When He Started To Lose Weight With Keto  You have to feed the brain.  When Eric started to lose weight, his energy levels improved, and his brain fog disappeared.  For the first time in a long time, Eric wasn't as sore or inflamed.  Most cops die before they get to enjoy their pension. Unfortunately, many cops die of heart attacks or develop diabetes.  Overall, when you lose weight, you feel good, you're happier, and you may live longer.  [38:00] Cops and Campers: Improving The Lives of Active and Retired Police Officers  After doing 23andMe, Eric found out he had a brother that was also a cop living in Florida.  He was a cop two hours away in Orlando.  Eric's brother was a year and a half older.  During the pandemic, Eric and his family traveled in a camper.  Eric filmed a short documentary called Cops & Cabins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZmGaMZzvck. [47:40] Remember That Keto Is Not A Diet, It's A Lifestyle  Stick with keto.

They are angry because they're hungry.  Unfortunately, many calorie counters have an interest in punching someone who disagrees with them. These people will punch with their keyboards.  While some vegans are so vehement because of some type of trauma they experienced.  Then, keto people believe they can't have any carbs.  People are doing anything they can think of to drive a wedge.  We need a group of people who are willing to be curious and experiment.   [10:10] Dave Loves Banning Trolls on Social Media Who Are Angry About Fasting  Dave has taught 70,000 people how to do intermittent fasting for free.  Check out the Fast This Way Challenge: https://daveasprey.com/fast-this-way-challenge/. People can go twenty-four hours without being hungry.  Dave bans people from his social media channels who are shrill, angry, and tiny-minded. When you ban angry people, you will be left with a peaceful space for inquiry and curiosity.  [13:10] Stop Consuming Omega-6 Oils! Two Years Later, Your Body Will Recover  There are things you do that make you weak, and things you do make you strong. The first thing you need to do is stop eating omega-6 oils: canola, soy, and corn.  Your cell membrane is actually a whole bunch of tiny droplets of fat. It changes composition based on what you eat. Once you cut the oils out and two years have gone by, half of your cell membranes will have turned over and been made out of more stable, healthier fats. If you put butter and MCT in your coffee, you won't need as much of it after two years.  [18:25] Dave Gives Recommendations For Eating Out At Restaurants While Traveling  When eating at a restaurant, you must assume your food is being cooked in vegetable oil.  Dave is known for carrying grass-fed butter in his bag and whipping it out at restaurants.  When you travel, bring protein powder and amino acid powder.  When you're out at a restaurant, you won't have to worry about what to eat.  You can go 24 hours without eating, and you have protein powder if you need it.  Dave eats a lot of sushi; it's clean food.  [26:15] Dave Gives His Thoughts on Fish Oil and Why You Should Never Overdo It You don't want too much fish oil. There's plenty of evidence that small doses of fish oil are good for you.  Dave takes a gram a day. He weighs about 230 and is around 12% body fat. If you're pregnant, you need to dose DHA heavily. Your body will store DHA in your butt and your thighs. It will preferentially donate that DHA to your baby. Remember, large doses of DHA are inflammatory, and your body can't handle it.   [34:00] It's Time To Cut Out Artificial Flavors and Remember That All Plants Are Not Your Friends We underestimate what glyphosate contamination and things like food colorings, dyes, and artificial flavors do to our brain and hunger hormones. You need to cut out artificial flavors and dyes.  Plants are not all your friends.  If you go outside and just take a bite of the first plant you see, you'll probably die or at least get hospitalized; plants are inherently toxic to us. Oxalic acid from kale and raw spinach is a major cause of kidney stones and gout.  Remember, different people have different sensitivities.  [38:35] Junk Light Is Impacting Your Health - Get TrueDark For Better Sleep The circadian clock that tells all your organs to work together simultaneously is set primarily by light.  That's why Dave created TrueDark: Get True Dark glasses here: https://amzn.to/3NobA4g TrueDark wearers experience better concentration and deeper sleep when wearing their patented lenses.  His glasses will help with sleep quality, increased sleep length, increased focused performance, and decreased eye fatigue. [47:50] About Danger Coffee and The Importance of Remineralizing Your Body Everyone needs more trace minerals.  Regular coffee depletes your body of minerals and electrolytes, making you feel tired.  While on the other hand, Danger Coffee remineralizes your body with more than 50 trace minerals, nutrients, and electrolytes.

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me Matty Lansdown. As a scientist and nutrition consultant with a passion for sharing the truth, Matty started on Facebook Live ranting about Food Is Medicine and Nutritional Therapies, which soon moved to seminars, retreats, and conferences in front of thousands and is now accompanied by his growing podcast called “How To NOT Get Sick And Die.” The aim has always been: to have people feel like they're in control of their health and empowered to take the necessary action! After ten years of study, research, and experimentation, Matty has worked to become a prolific voice in the health, nutrition, and diet space, including food is medicine, body detoxification, energy optimization, and weight loss.  To empower individuals to live their best life Matty deliver this scientific training through stories and metaphors that allow you to live a highly energetic life, increase your productivity, lose a few kilos in the process and do the things you used to without having to stare at the number on the scales. In this episode, Matty opens up the show by explaining what he learned from working at a cancer hospital. For one, Matty learned that lifestyle choices cause around 95% of cancers. That is one of the reasons why he is so passionate about nutrition, so Matty reveals why diet culture doesn't work and how you can slowly begin to change your lifestyle. Tune in as we chat about awakening people to the power of government, ways to celebrate your wins, and how to enjoy your food guilt-free.

At university, Matty lived on beer, rice, pasta, and bread. Eventually, Matty got a job at a cancer hospital.  Matty learned that the World Health Organization said that 90 to 95% of cancers are due to diet, lifestyle, and tobacco.  At the time, only 5% of cancers were genetic.  Unfortunately, much of society doesn't believe that lifestyle choices cause cancer. [17:50] Why Diet Culture Doesn't Work and How To Do “One Tweak A Week” Some people have been on forty diets, and they are in a more unhealthy state than when they first began their journey.  You can't solve deep problems during an eight-week course.  Matty says, “one tweak a week.” If you jump too far out of your comfort zone, your nervous system will think it's unsafe and dangerous.  When you do one tweak a week, your new lifestyle will get built slowly over time. While on the other hand, when you go on a diet, you are supposed to do everything all at once.  [26:05] Making Long-Lasting Changes That Are Meaningful and Sustainable  Most people want everything to happen tomorrow; however, you need the maturity to understand that it is impossible. You will trick yourself into failing if you think everything will change tomorrow. If you do too much too fast, you will wear yourself out.  There is not enough space in 24 hours to live an unsustainable transformation. Make your tweak meaningful, but not too significant or too much change at one time.  [33:15] How Covid Is Awakening People To The Power of The Media and The Government  Melbourne is the most locked-down city on the planet.  It has been a lonely and challenging time in Melbourne. Matty noticed that Netflix had photoshopped masks onto their thumbnails during the pandemic.  Covid is awakening people to the power of the media and the fact that the news is a PR agency for the government.  Now, people are thinking about what belief systems have been embedded in their subconscious.  [37:00] Forming Your Own Identity By Challenging Your Ideas and Belief Systems Perpetually challenging the ideas in your head is a healthy way to start forming your own identity. We meet and eat with our friends and families, so we have the same relationships around food as we do with our loved ones.  Is your relationship with food one that you have, or is it one that has been embedded in you?  Anything is possible once you take control of your belief systems and your own decisions. [42:00] The Reason You Should Permit Yourself To Enjoy Something Guilt-Free Sometimes you can give yourself permission to enjoy chocolate and birthday cake. Once you finish the chocolate, you should return to the way you existed before. Remember, you don't have to fall off the bandwagon and beat yourself up.  Foods that you enjoy don't have to be eradicated forever.  If you choose to eat something unhealthy, make sure to have love and respect for yourself still.  [48:10] Accountability and Celebrations Are Essential For Your Journey  Have people in your life to keep you accountable for celebrations. It's too easy to focus on the negative.  Instead, you need someone to remind you to celebrate.  If you don't have time to enjoy the process, then what's the point? When you celebrate small things, they become big things.  AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode:  Check out Matty's Website: https://mattylansdown.com How To Not Get Sick And Die: https://player.whooshkaa.com/shows/how-to-not-get-sick-and-die Follow Matty Lansdown Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mattylansdown YouTube: ​​https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCztErJj0TNFzFl2dK7uHDSw LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/matty-lansdown-0bb76b61/ Intermittent Fasting for Optimal Health: https://www.facebook.com/groups/intermittentfastingforoptimalhealth/ Join the Busy Mum's Facebook Group: https://mattylansdown.com/BusyMothersFBgroup Join the Keto Kamp Academy: https://ketokampacademy.com/7-day-trial-a Watch Keto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Get Keto Flex on Audible for Free (New Customers Only): https://adbl.co/36d6A24 Get Keto Flex on Audible here for current customers: https://adbl.co/3699lBm / / E P I S O D E   S P ON S O R S  PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off.

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me the Founder of The Energy Blueprint, Ari Whitten. He is an energy and fatigue specialist who focuses on taking an evidence-based approach to energy enhancement,  a nutrition, exercise, and natural health expert, and a #1 best-selling author.  He has been studying nutrition and holistic health for over two decades. He has a Bachelor of Science from San Diego State University in Kinesiology (specializing in fitness, nutrition, and health). He also has a background in exercise physiology and fitness and holds two advanced certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist. In addition, he recently completed the three years of coursework for his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, an education which rounds out all aspects – nutrition, fitness, and psychology – of his approach to optimal health. Ari is a tireless researcher who has obsessively devoted the last 20 years of his life to the pursuit of being on the cutting edge of the science of health and energy enhancement. For the last six years, he's been working with many of the top scientists and physicians on the planet to develop the most comprehensive program in the world on the science of overcoming fatigue and increasing energy — The Energy Blueprint. In this episode, Ari first speaks about his Epstein Barr Virus diagnosis and how that took him down a rabbit hole of energy optimization. One way to improve chronic fatigue is by growing more mitochondria; Ari explains how this is possible. Then, Ari dives into melatonin and tips for fixing a circadian rhythm disruption. Tune in as we chat about the importance of hormetic stressors, Eat For Energy, and Ari's products from The Energy Blueprint.  Purchase Ari's new book Eat For Energy here: https://bit.ly/3Fka6VB Free 7 Day Keto Challenge May 9th 2022.

Unfortunately, Ari got very sick with Epstein Barr Virus and mononucleosis in his mid-twenties. He lost about thirty-five pounds in the span of a month; he couldn't eat because the back of his throat was so swollen.  Ari was left with chronic fatigue; it shifted his entire life.  So, Ari started to focus on the world of energy optimization; he became obsessed with energy science. Conventional medical doctors had no information to offer Ari.  After doing research, Ari found that science actually does not support the idea that adrenal fatigue is a significant cause of chronic fatigue. Well, Ari realized that no one truly understands what is causing fatigue.  [08:45] The Key To Overcoming Fatigue Is Growing More Mitochondria  Finding ways to grow more mitochondria and strengthen your mitochondria is a massive key to the puzzle of overcoming fatigue.  The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell.  We are taught to think of mitochondria as these mindless energy generators. Something you may not know is the mitochondria have a dual role beyond energy production, which is just as important as their role in energy production.  The mitochondria also help with energy regulation.  Your energy levels are a function of the degree to which your mitochondria decide if you're safe or if you're under attack.  [17:50] Hormetic Stressors Will Make Your Mitochondria Bigger and Stronger  Hormetic stress is how a transient metabolic stressor works to stimulate beneficial adaptations that ultimately increase resilience and resistance in the face of a broad range of other stressors.  Basically, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.  By exposing yourself to moderate stressors within your body's capacity, you make your body more robust and more resistant.  Hormetic stressors are vital for challenging our mitochondria and stimulating them in a way that makes them bigger and stronger. [27:30] Is Your Body Under Attack? Your Brain Will Create Sickness Behavior When cells are under attack, they shift all their resources to defense mode.  Cells will go into defense mode to protect themselves. They also go into defense mode as an evolutionary adaptive mechanism to help the body's energy and resources be redirected towards defending against the threat. When we have lots of immune activation and elevated levels of inflammatory cytokines, the brain responds by also creating sickness behavior, which includes fatigue. When your brain creates sickness behavior, it protects you from over-expending energy and depleting resources.  [42:40] The Importance of Melatonin: What You Need To Know You get 50 to 70 percent suppression of melatonin secretion by the brain in the evenings due to simply being in a typical home under standard indoor home lighting.  Melatonin is a vital hormone for protecting your mitochondria and protecting your brain's neurons.  If you're chronically suppressing melatonin at the cellular level, you will have chronic melatonin deficiency.  Sadly, melatonin doesn't get the respect that it deserves.  [1:05:15] Ari Is Hypersensitive To Melatonin Supplements - Are You?  Ari is hypersensitive to melatonin if he takes it in supplement form. After polling his audience, about 25% of people are sensitive to melatonin.  People who take melatonin for a significant time will sleep poorly after coming off of it. It will take people a few days for sleep to normalize without taking melatonin.  AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode:  Check out The Energy Blueprint: https://theenergyblueprint.com Follow Ari Whitten & The Energy Blueprint  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theenergyblueprint/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/theenergyblueprint/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnQo6oCvS6YuvaablyMT_sw Twitter: https://twitter.com/ari_whitten Eat for Energy: How to Beat Fatigue, Supercharge Your Mitochondria, and Unlock All-Day Energy: Purchase Ari's new book Eat For Energy here: https://bit.ly/3Fka6VB Ari's Books: https://www.amazon.com/Ari-Whitten/e/B00K9VPNY8/benazadi-20 Email for gifts: Ari@theenergyblueprint.com The Energy Blueprint Store: https://store.theenergyblueprint.com/# Listen to The Energy Blueprint: https://theenergyblueprint.com/podcast/ Join the Keto Kamp Academy: https://ketokampacademy.com/7-day-trial-a Watch Keto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Watch Keto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Free 7 Day Keto Challenge May 9th 2022.

People with high uric acid levels have an increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's.  There's a relationship between these diseases and uric acid.  Uric acid directly leads to insulin resistance.  [19:30] Your Body Is Retaining Uric Acid As A Survival Mechanism   We tend to retain uric acid. Our uric acid levels can be higher as a survival mechanism, thanks to our primate ancestors. We don't hibernate for six months. Therefore, we don't need to be storing this fat for the winter that never comes.  88% of American adults are metabolically unhealthy. Getting Covid is associated with a 40 to 60% increased risk of type two diabetes. Individuals with higher uric acid levels have a higher risk of dying from Covid.  [25:10] Your Body Can't Handle More Than Five Grams of Fructose At A Time Your body can handle some fructose, about five grams at a time.  When your body is presented with high levels of fructose, it overwhelms what the body can do.  When fructose is delivered in the context of fiber, it slows the absorption. So, it's better to eat an apple than drink apple juice.  Vitamin C aids in uric acid excretion.  The most common way to overdo fructose consumption is by drinking fruit juice.  A 12-ounce glass of orange juice might have 30 grams of sugar. There's no way the body will be able to deal with that appropriately.  [35:30] Tart Cherries As A Remedy For Gout and Lowering Uric Acid Levels  Tart cherries have been researched for decades. Originally, tart cherries have been looked upon as a remedy for gout.  It has been noted that people who ate cherries would have fewer gout flare-ups.  Tart cherries are pretty darn effective in lowering uric acid levels.  [36:40] The Health Benefits of Drinking Coffee  Drinking coffee is associated with a dramatically lowered risk of Alzheimer's. Coffee is also associated with lower uric acid levels.  Plus, coffee reduces inflammation, upregulates antioxidant function, and improves detoxification in the body.  Also, coffee helps us grow new brain cells, no matter our age.  [41:45] The Relationship Between Animal-Based Protein and The Role of Uric Acid Fiber is so essential for human health. Most of Dr. Perlmutter's food is plant-based.  Regarding our uric acid story, certain meats or animal products are worse than others. Organ meats, sardines, anchovies, and scallops can raise your uric acid levels.  The most significant issues for uric acid are fructose, purines, and alcohol.  [48:20] Should I Follow A Ketogenic Lifestyle If I Have Gout Attacks?  The most significant player in gout is fructose.  When you research how to fix gout, there will be no talk about removing sugar or fructose from your diet.  The human requirement for sugar in our diets is zero grams per day.  We subsidize the growth of corn from which high fructose corn syrup comes from. We are supporting the diseases that are sucking up our healthcare resources. Diseases are significant money makers for the healthcare industry.  It's time we start thinking about prevention.  [52:25] What Role Does Mental-Emotional Stress Play With Uric Acid Levels? When we are experiencing stress, our ability to make rational, forward-thinking decisions is compromised. When your decision-making is compromised, you won't be making good lifestyle choices.  Therefore, under stress, you will eat more foods that have sugar.  Eventually, you will raise uric acid levels and feed the flame of poor metabolic health. It is time to make better decisions by lowering your stress levels.  AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode:  Check out Dr. David Perlmutter's Website: https://www.drperlmutter.com/ Follow Dr. Perlmutter  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavidPerlmutterMd Twitter: https://twitter.com/davidperlmutter YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/DavidPerlmutterMD Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/davidperlmutter/ Get Dr. Perlmutter's Books: https://www.drperlmutter.com/learn/books/ Grain Brain: https://www.amazon.com/Grain-Brain-Surprising-Sugar-Your-Killers/dp/0316485136/benazadi-20 Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid―The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health: Uric Acid testing device: https://amzn.to/3yjeP8Q https://www.amazon.com/Drop-Acid-Surprising-Controlling-Extraordinary/dp/0316315397/benazadi-20 Join the Keto Kamp Academy: https://ketokampacademy.com/7-day-trial-a Watch Keto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Free 7 Day Keto Challenge May 9th 2022.

    Today, I am blessed to have here with me Patrick K. Porter, Ph.D. He is an award-winning author, educator, consultant, entrepreneur, and speaker. With 20 years of experience operating the largest self-help franchise in the world, he has become a highly sought-after expert within the personal improvement industry, having sold over 3 million of his self-help products worldwide. Dr. Porter has been on the cutting edge of brainwave entrainment technology for 32 years. He was a co-developer of the MC2, the first personal light & sound brain training machine, voted “Best New Gadget of the Year” at the 1989 Consumer Electronics Show.  And his team was voted the “Best New Health APP” at 2019 Consumer Electronic Show.    He is the author of the award-winning bestseller, Awaken the Genius, Mind Technology for the 21st Century, which was awarded “Best How-To Book of 1994” by the North American Book Dealers Exchange.  Awaken the Genius is translated into four languages, and more than 150,000 copies have been sold globally.  He is also the author of Discover the Language of the Mind and Thrive in Overdrive, How to Navigate Your Overloaded Lifestyle, among others. In this episode, Dr. Porter speaks about how meditation helped him excel in both sports and academics as a child. Then, we dive into the importance of getting out in the sun and enjoying nature as much as possible. Dr. Porter explains how consistent stress can actually shrink your brain. Tune in as we dive into BrainTap, and Dr. Porter reveals how BrainTap will help you build neuroplasticity, overcome psychological phobias, improve HRV, and get better sleep.  15 day free trial with BrainTap: https://braintap.com/15-day-gift/#a_aid=2204BEAZ&a_bid=1e303721 Free 7 Day Keto Challenge May 9th 2022.

Eventually, he began to visualize his grades.  Where you feed energy will expand.  [09:00] How Going Out In Nature and Enjoying The Sun Will Benefit Your Health  Our brain loves patterns.  If you're used to watching the news every night, the subconscious will incorporate it into your dreams.  Our body needs the earth. Dr. Porter recommends checking out Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever!: https://www.amazon.com/Earthing-Most-Important-Health-Discovery/dp/1591202833/benazadi-20. All of our cells get power from the sun. There are more mitochondria in your eyes than in other places in the body.  Your body will interact with the garden, trees, grass, and the Earth.  Nature will work in making your brain well, not the news.  [21:30] Cortisol and Adrenaline Hijack the Brain; Plus, Stress Shrinks The Brain  We're either in our thriving brain, or we're in our surviving brain. There is no middle ground.  If you have a hard time with PTSD, you will be in survival mode all the time.  Our brains don't know how to flip the switch. We need ways to recover; you can't just keep going and going.  One stressful year shrinks the brain three-quarters of an inch.  Our subconscious controls 95% of our biology.  [29:10] About BrainTap: The Mobile App and Wearable Headset Build Your Brain Fitness  15 day free trial with BrainTap: https://braintap.com/15-day-gift/#a_aid=2204BEAZ&a_bid=1e303721   With BrainTap, you start to turn on neurotransmitters' production, which happens in the gut.  During a BrainTap, you're bathing in this biological soup in the proper physiological state. Everything that happens to you happens through you.  Light brings energy to the brain.  Our ears take 25,000 pieces of information every second, and your eyes are actually 30% of your hearing.  The retinal flashing will keep your brain awake during BrainTap.  [35:35] To Build Neuroplasticity, You Need To Challenge The Brain  BrainTap will stress the brain, but it's fun stress.  When listening to one voice, you can still listen to your internal dialogue. The brain only processes first attention. If your first attention is on your internal dialogue, it doesn't matter what someone else says.  With BrainTap, there will be a voice in the right ear. Then, they do the same thing with the left ear. After three minutes, your brain will synchronize.  In order to build that neuroplasticity, you need to challenge the brain.  [41:30] How BrainTap Will Help You Overcome Psychological Fears   An allergy is a phobic response to the immune system. During fear, we are overproducing white marker cells. Psychological fear is creating physiological destruction to our bodies. Your psychology affects your immune system, and your biggest brain is in your gut.  BrainTap will get your gut, heart, and brain to communicate.  Overall, BrainTap will provide your mind and body with all the benefits of meditation without the disciplined effort. [47:35] Improving Your HRV and Getting Better Sleep With BrainTap  When you use BrainTap, you are going to see your HRV skyrocket.  If you're always in sympathetic drive, you will never have a good heart rate variability.  Getting good sleep is all about unwinding the sensory perception.  If you are struggling with sleep, getting more parasympathetic will be essential.  Two biohacks are free: sleeping and drinking good water.  AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode:  Check out Dr. Patrick Porter's Website: https://drpatrickporter.com Follow Dr. Patrick Porter Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DrPatrickPorter/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/PatrickPorter Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drpatrickporter/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/drpatrickporter Awaken the Genius: Mind Technology for the 21st Century: https://www.amazon.com/Awaken-Genius-Mind-Technology-Century/dp/0963761188/benazadi-20 Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever!: https://www.amazon.com/Earthing-Most-Important-Health-Discovery/dp/1591202833/benazadi-20 15 day free trial with BrainTap: https://braintap.com/15-day-gift/#a_aid=2204BEAZ&a_bid=1e303721 Join the Keto Kamp Academy: https://ketokampacademy.com/7-day-trial-a Watch Keto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Free 7 Day Keto Challenge May 9th 2022.

Kali decided to do her own research, take control of her health, and be her advocate. Kali found out about her stage 4 cancer two months after having a baby.  It all started during Covid; Kali had chest pain and difficulty breathing. After going to the emergency room, the doctors found a tumor the size of an orange.  The tumor had ruptured, causing immense pain.  Eventually, Kali had her diaphragm removed and replaced with mesh. Plus, the doctors stripped her pleural lining and took a little bit of her right lung.  [14:30] Owen Speaks About His Story and Also Getting Diagnosed With Stage 4 Cancer Owen had a grapefruit-sized tumor in his chest.  He had surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Later, Owen shrunk his tumor 30% by fasting and eating a plant-based keto diet.  Through lifestyle changes, Owen was in a therapeutic process, changing his body's chemistry to eat cancer while awake and thriving.  Eventually, Owen was diagnosed with stage four cancer.  The doctors told Owen that there was no hope; every single scan got worse. Owen was told he would only live two to five more years.  Down the road, Owen read the book How To Starve Cancer; it changed his life. Get the book here: https://www.amazon.com/How-Starve-Cancer-Jane-McLelland/dp/0951951734/benazadi-20 [27:00] Surround Yourself With Survivors and People Who Believe In Your Recovery Is your goal to use the doctor's medicine, or is your goal to overcome your disease?  Owen's doctors told them there was no chance. So, why would he do what the doctors told him to do? Instead, Owen wanted to follow people who believed he could overcome his diagnosis.  Instead, you should find a community of survivors, not statistics from doctors. When you surround yourself with survivors, you will be in a healthier place.  [28:15] Resources To Learn From On Your Journey To Recovery  Owen and Kali learned a lot from Dr. Nasha. Check out her work here: https://www.drnasha.com Also, get the book The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: https://www.amazon.com/Metabolic-Approach-Cancer-Integrating-Bio-Individualized/dp/1603586865/benazadi-20 After surgery, Kali had high inflammation. Kali started following the keto diet and fasting; her inflammation went down tremendously.  Owen recommends listening to Radical Remission: https://www.amazon.com/Radical-Remission-Surviving-Cancer-Against/dp/0062268740/benazadi-20 Something that Owen learned is that different cancers react to proteins differently.  [36:15] Be Careful With CT Scans - They Will Increase Your Secondary Risks  Getting two and a half CT scans per year dramatically increases your chance of secondary cancers. Owen brought this up to his doctor; she said he wouldn't live that long anyway.  When you test fasting and keto, you have to get a scan and see what it did; you have to be strategic.  Remember, whenever you get a scan, you are increasing secondary risks.  Owen says that you should get an MRI; that way, you don't get any radiation.  When you fast, you'll be in deep autophagy. You have to know why you are doing these things.  Owen recommends Rayus: https://rayusradiology.com. [43:00] The Journey To Metabolic Flexibility Will Be Challenging - Remember Your ‘Why'  Kali is metabolically flexible.  Metabolic flexibility is complex, and it is not an easy path to navigate.  Finding health is a journey that you have to change all the time. If you're struggling to commit to keto, just remember how good you feel when you do it.  Overall, your body can heal itself, and you can live a long and healthy life.  AND MUCH MORE!   Resources from this episode:  Heal With Cancer: https://www.healwithcancer.com Beat Cancer With Me: https://shor.by/CfvH Follow Beat Cancer With Me  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/beatcancerwithme/ Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/owensjourneytoremission Twitter: https://twitter.com/owenvideo YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEgk0lDf8rD15YbK2TJ19Cw Follow Heal With Cancer Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/healwithcancer/ How To Starve Cancer: https://www.amazon.com/How-Starve-Cancer-Jane-McLelland/dp/0951951734/benazadi-20 Dr. Nasha: https://www.drnasha.com The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: https://www.amazon.com/Metabolic-Approach-Cancer-Integrating-Bio-Individualized/dp/1603586865/benazadi-20 Radical Remission: https://www.amazon.com/Radical-Remission-Surviving-Cancer-Against/dp/0062268740/benazadi-20 Rayus: https://rayusradiology.com Join the Keto Kamp Academy: https://ketokampacademy.com/7-day-trial-a Watch Keto Kamp on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUh_MOM621MvpW_HLtfkLyQ Free 7 Day Keto Challenge May 9th 2022.
