Transcript Jason: [0:00] Welcome to the Jason and Scot show this is episode 281 being recorded on Thursday November 18 20 21. I'm your host Jason retailgeek Goldberg and as usual I'm here with your co-host Scott Wingo. Scot: [0:16] Hey Jason and welcome back Jason Scott show listeners. Jason as you and the listeners know I am a huge scene in b.c. junkie and you can't turn on CNBC Durning Earth during earning Seasons without seeing Mark mahaney he is one of the top internet analyst. He was actually on recently talking about the artist previously known as Facebook meta Mark has a new book out called quote-unquote Nothing But net and is joining us tonight give listeners an early peek of what is sure to be the best seller in the bookmark covers some of our favorite companies including Amazon Apple Facebook / meta Google Netflix Twitter and Uber Mark welcome to the show. Mark: [0:56] Thanks for having me on guys. Jason: [0:58] Mark we are thrilled the chat with you is you know Scott is a huge Amazon fan boy so I anytime he gets a chance to talk Amazon he's excited. And I'm super excited because after tonight show I'm going to be smart enough to get rich like you and Scott so that's pretty pretty exciting for me. But before we jump into all that we always like to give listeners a little bit of a feel for our guests background and in your case I know I think you're officially the the oldest analysts on Wall Street is that true. Mark: [1:29] Well that's the oldest and longest lasting internet analyst on Wall Street but I don't look the part so how about we do that yes I've been covering Internet stock since 1998 do a series of bank said I started, working with this tremendous analysts her name was Mary Meeker her name is Mary Meeker and started the first Friday I was on Wall Street I got a call from the CFO of this tiny little online auction company that sold Pez dispensers and was looking to see whether any banks would be interested in their IPO that company was eBay so I wasn't there at the beginning of the internet but I was there pretty close to the beginning of the commercial for the public market to internet and it's been a fascinating ride and I thought there were a lot of lessons I could draw both from the successes the market and failures in the market and my personal successes and failures as a stock picker. Scot: [2:20] Cool what's so name some of the firm's so in my recollection you've probably worked at six firms like how many firms have you worked out over or that career. Mark: [2:30] Yeah now I don't want you to think I you know I jump around too much but I started off at Morgan Stanley also worked at Citibank Royal Bank of Canada. A small boot wonderful Boutique called American Technology research and I'm currently at evercore isi but I've been doing nothing but net. Hence the title of the book that's been my email tagline or always online is one of those two it's been my email tagline for 25 years but nothing but net and that's just doing my best to try to stay ahead of these internet stocks the early ones the the eBay's the Amazons the Yahoo excite if you might remember them infoseek. And then and then AOL and then and then later on some of the more Dynamic ones came out ended up with names like uber including most recently one you talked about Warby Parker so it's been a fascinating span and arguably one of the most dynamic. Parts of Wall Street I guess if you were working as an analyst on Wall Street. Or portfolio manager portfolio manager if you could have picked two sectors to be a part of to track over the last 25 years one of them has to have been the internet just how explosive it's been a been plenty of – explosions in there but there's been some wonderful wealth creation the other sector would probably be software just just too wonderful Industries I got lucky I was I was part of the internet. Scot: [3:49] Yeah I'm glad you didn't pick Mall Focus treats that would have been a bad choice. So you know as Jason mentioned there's kind of this auspicious title that you have of the oldest I would say wisest and most longest lasting internet unless. Tell us about some of the as you reflect in the book is kind of got some really good stories and you've been kind of on the front row seat of a lot of cool stuff maybe tell us what was your worst pick and best pick in the span of the career there. Mark: [4:22] Well I had a sale on Google it close to its IPO I was brought on to CNBC show and told by none other than Jim Jim Cramer that I was an analyst with a three-egg omelette on my face because of my cell phone call he was right I was wrong so you know one doesn't pretend one doesn't tend to forget moments like that on public television being told that you know you're pretty much an ass. But it does happen you know there are axes and then there are you know others and so I made plenty of mistakes I had to buy on Blue Apron although the lessons from that turned out to be different than I thought I got the call wrong but the lessons were different than I thought I kind of dissect that a little bit in the book. So those are some of my some of my worst calls I think my to my three best calls have frankly been sticking with a buy on Amazon for pretty much the last 15 years Netflix for the last 12 years and Priceline and now now booking for. [5:18] For a solid 12 years both Netflix of all three of those were really decades-long S&P 500 Best in Class stocks for a variety of different reasons and in the book I try to call out what were those reasons what were the what's that what's the pattern recognition so that you know we as investors can find the next Netflix and the next Amazon doesn't mean and Amazon and Netflix can't perform well from here but what are the things you can see in common that can help you as a stock picker you know kind of see ahead what really kind of started a lot of the the insights the idea of the book was this wonderful book that was written in 1980 called that one up on wall by Peter Lynch kind of a Bible or primer for anybody really looking to invest invest in the market with some wonderful advice and I really had any wrote it based on some wonderful examples of successful stocks and companies of his generation and I thought somebody needed to write one about our generation and you know these phenomenal money-making we know wealth-creating stocks that have. [6:19] That have soared the charts top the charts over the last 20 10 5 and even two years that have been dramatic dramatic winners from the covid crisis to I try to keep it long term in duration and frankly that's one of the big lessons I have in my book is. Is you know long-term I've found stocks do follow fundamentals they just do companies get bigger more Revenue more profits their stocks go higher almost always that's the case if you're a patient long-term investor so you can make money just investing you don't need to day trade and I think that was the last thing that really inspired me to write this book there about 15 million new. [6:53] Trading accounts that have opened up over the last two years you know the mean Traders the Robin Hood accounts and I just wanted to step back and say look you can have very good returns in the markets by buying high quality companies especially Tech and growth companies you don't have to day trade you can sleep better at night I got plenty of examples of companies that created wonderful. Shareholder returns over time and their stories you can take your time and really understand and stick with and anyway that's it this is this book is a little bit of little bit of personal Memoir but really more of a history of the Great. Companies and the ones that failed and then what are the lessons you can draw to apply going forwards. Jason: [7:32] Got it so I know it's not in your coverage area but you would have a buy on GameStop is that what you're saying no. I Nostalgia requires me to ask though I am staring right now at a pets.com. Puppet still in the box that's like sort of a Memento I have on my on my desk like we're you covering like those guys at the at the. Dot-com boom. Mark: [8:00] No no I didn't but I refer to that in the book and I make this I draw the comparison you know pets.com and smoke you know pets.com went public with trailing 12 month month revenues of 5 million I don't know if you heard that right five million dollars. [8:16] Trailing 12 months they had been an operating company for under two years I mean how that thing got out you know in hindsight is is is pretty shocking but wait a second go you know go forward 15 years and what came out. To e.com chewy.com went public with 3 billion in trailing sales and you knows the same sort of basic value proposition to Consumers it's just that the market was a lot bigger it allowed for a lot more scale and a bunch of other things came out o like cell phones smartphones cloud computing which allowed companies to scale up at much lower costs and so the markets really were proved out at that you know the time of pets.com there were three unknowns is there really an internet Market are there really good management teams and other really good business models today the first question is emphatically yes they are huge Market opportunities and they've been proven in in the Internet space advertising retail entertainment a lot of different ways you can cut it and there's some business models have generated enormous amounts of free cash flow and then there are yes of course there's always a few select excellent management teams who find that right combination it can be it's proven to be a great path to making money in stocks and chewy has been a stock that I've really liked since its IPO even though it's the next pets.com and that's the cynicism that people be placed in front of it when they went public. This was a very different puppy. Jason: [9:39] Yeah it does it seems like timing it seems obvious but timing is such a big. Part of all that you referenced Peter Lynch and I know you know there's. There's all the old Netflix stuff I actually started my career at Blockbuster entertainment and so in my in my industry everyone makes fun of Blockbuster that we got Netflix stand and all those sorts of things and I always have to point out. You know we sold Blockbuster for 18 billion dollars in 1995 like five years before Netflix was invented. Then it was a good business with a good exit you know every every business has it it's it's moment and it's time and you know the the railroads aren't the investment that they once were either. Mark: [10:28] Netflix is a fascinating story so let me let me let me jump to it a little bit you know one of the things the punchline of I asked people if you're going to remember one thing for my book I hope you'll still buy it but if you're going to remember one thing from my book it's dhq it's not DQ That's Dairy Queen dhq is dislocated high-quality companies and. You know time you mentioned timing I was thinking in terms of stock timing I thought those were your going to take us I think it's very hard to the time stocks but you know you can clearly see when stocks are dislocated I either traded off twenty Thirty forty percent so that's usually you know time if you think it's high quality asset and it dislocates them they all dislocate from time to time even the best highest quality names. That's when you can kind of Step In add the positions by the stock knowing that you in a way mitigated some of the valuation risk as investors your tries an investor you're trying to do two things mitigate valuation risk and mitigate fundamentals risk you know the chance that Revenue falls off a cliff margins get crushed the way you mitigate that fundamentals. Risk is to focus on companies with large Tam's excellent management teams great product Innovation and superb customer value prop and Netflix screen so well for me on those four things I'll just take this off super quickly if you don't mind. [11:42] The industry Vision so let's see Reed Hastings invented or started Netflix back in 1997 Netflix the name itself sort of implies that somehow we're going to be doing some streaming thing and this is a 1997 when it would have taken you four hours to download the first five minutes of Terminator like there was no streaming Market there but yet. [12:02] That was the premise of the company in 10 years later you know you look at the first initial interviews with Reed Hastings I mean this is where he was going to take the company all along so I was just giving him kudos for industry vision and the fact that he was willing to cannibalize his existing DVD business first dreaming business very few entrepreneurs can do that so management you know checks My Box customer value proposition the best way to tell whether a customer a company has a great value proposition is do they have pricing power will do people love it so much that they'll pay more for starting in 2014 Netflix started increasing pricing just about every other year and there's some ads accelerated that's a compelling that's evidence of compelling value proposition third is this product Innovation and you know they just don't have a lot of things not just streaming but there's a lot of these little tweaks that the side like binge watching you know kudos to Netflix for just rolling out new series all at once I mean practically invented binge-watching and of course you know they sort of invented the streaming thing or the people who founded music really did that but but Reed comes in a close close second on that and then you know I'm finally in terms of Tam's large Tam's total addressable markets. [13:13] You can add it up a couple of different ways but you know home entertainment video consumption it's it's a couple of hundred billion dollars in total you know Market opportunity and then who knows these things come along like smartphones and all of a sudden the majority of usage is on smartphones that tells you that these markets could be a lot bigger than we traditionally thought just like Spotify blew out the market for what really could be music advertising revenue and music subscription Revenue Netflix is did the same thing with me with Video subscription Revenue they blew up the tan they made it a lot bigger so that's right you know I love that story about the stories about Netflix I gave him a tremendous amount of Kudos I think the sometimes people under appreciate just because it's kind of a singular company just you know video video streaming I think they I think they don't get enough credit for what they've done and what they could still do because I think there's still one more one more trick up Reed Hastings sleeve and I think it's gaming and he's reached they've received such so much skepticism about this pivot or missing expansion in the gaming but you know management team to figured out dvd-by-mail streaming original content International expansion mount give them the benefit of the doubt that they can figure out an Innovative new way. To deliver gaming and therefore further increase their value proposition you'd want to stick with a company like that I stick with the stock like that. Scot: [14:34] Ever kind of a random question let's say there was I'll pick something at random a company that was Reinventing Car Care and making it mobile and digital would you call that a dhq. Mark: [14:45] I think that yes yes absolutely. Scot: [14:51] All right leading the witness. I do have to give you Kudos because in the Netflix section you do have a Star Wars reference you talk about the Disney death star which is which is appropriate because they now own the Death Star it's got a part of there is one of their IPs. Mark: [15:09] But by the way that was you know there were a couple of Netflix there's a rocky stock Rocky stock here that's right that's a that's a rocky stock for you it's had there were two times they miss Subs because of uncertainty over the price increases and they got some pushback it was an obvious that they had pricing power but they proved it over time and then they've got this great competitor risk with Disney and I think what the market missed on that this is just kind of leaving aside the book of just talking about stock picks is you know people are going to sign up for multiple streaming services now not now not five six or seven but they'll sign up for two or three if there's original content and they have original content I mean there's some things you will you have to sign up for Disney Plus for if you if people are like use God and you know dramatic. [15:52] Star Wars fans of course you can sign up for Disney plus but you know there's because its original content if you want to watch squid game there's one and one only place you can go for that and you know there's going to be another squid game or you know another show that just kind of breaks through the site-geist and by the way that's where Netflix is so I'll leave Netflix aside but I'm so struck by is this company shapes the Zeitgeist whether they can cause a run on chess board sales worldwide with the Queens Gambit a year ago where they can cause more people start studying Korean on Duolingo a language app which I actually like is the stock because they can you know they've introduced this show squid games like when a company reaches the Zeitgeist when they when they become almost like a lucky lexicon like they become a verb like I'm gonna google that or you know it's the Uber of this that or that you know that's that's something special and those are usually stocks that have gotten very long runways. Scot: [16:44] Yeah and I'm here in North Carolina and we have all these MBA we have all these universities and I was actually speaking earlier this week at MBA class over at Duke. And you know I have this whole little joke track that I do where I talk about my first company was profitable and I learned I could never raise VC because get the TV season that's a your profit we don't invest in property companies so yeah I often joke that I've been doing it wrong and ever since then I haven't made a dime. And I kind of thought it was those funny because you kind of. The internet sector was kind of early before SAS where and you point this out where there's kind of you know what we learned is there is an investor that loves Revenue growth and in a way that the opposite side of that coin is it can actually hurt you if you start to make profits maybe share with listeners that that you know probably many of them come from traditional businesses where that sounds nonsensical maybe maybe explain kind of what happened there. Mark: [17:41] Well I want to be I want to be on to get nuanced here which is you know I that chapter that says the most important thing out there is revenue revenue revenue you know for tech stocks and growth stock. But of course earnings and free cash flow matter it's that sometimes the public market is a lot longer term focused than people give it credit for Netflix is a great example that also is Amazon. I mean those those businesses had if you look at near-term valuation PE metrics price to free cash flow there's no way you would have bought those stocks. But what I think long-term growth investors realized is there's this you know when these get these assets that can grow their Top Line twenty to thirty percent Plus. From scale for multiple years like that can that creates an enormous amount of value over time and it's so rare I came up with something of a 20% rule you know it's one to two percent of the S&P 500 that can consistently grow at from scale their Top Line 20% which is like five times faster or six times faster than Global GDP growth so it's rare for good reasons but those companies dramatically outperformed the market because they're rare and it's not like growth and scale solve everything but geez they solve a lot of things I've yet to see it's got you know you go way back on this I'm sure you had these comments like Amazon will never turn a profit my first year on the street. [19:04] There's a person who's not one of the most influential investors out there put his finger in my chest. And said you know Amazon will never be profitable and you know I guess he must have been writing he was so smart but he was wrong because he didn't realize just what how powerful Amazon could be as it's scaled over time I mean you generate billions and billions in revenue and you can you can run over a lot of your fixed costs as long as you're not selling dollars for 95 cents you know if you're you know if you're selling them for a dollar and two cents and then you get scale against your fixed cost yeah scale will solve just about anything and I look at what happened with Amazon and I've looked at more much more recently its bring it up to up to date to Uber Uber just printed its first free cash flow quarter ever even though it's Rideshare businesses like down 40% since Pre-K covid levels how the heck did they do that because it took a lot of costs out of the business and then they had this delivery business that really scaled so look earnings matter it's just that when we look at tech stocks and growth stocks you know especially early on is IPOs they rarely go public. As profitable businesses the question you have to answer yourself is can they be profitable long-term are there companies that are already you know similar business models that are already are that's one way or their segments of the business that are already profitable. [20:19] Is there a reason that scale can't drive profitability for the company and the fourth what I call profitability Action question that detail this in a book is yo Are there specific steps steps that the management team can take to bring the product the company to profitability so I've yet to see a company. [20:36] And I'm sure there are some but I've yet to see one that hit the public markets that couldn't scale itself to profitability now some blew up. Well you know that's because they couldn't hit the enough scale so that's that's kind of my answer to the question of yes of course earnings and free cash flow matter at the end of the day that's what they're going to be valued on but just watch these companies that they really execute well they can take what looks like really aggressive valuations and overtime those valuations can turn awfully awfully attractive and a lot of times the stock wealth creation goes from point A to point B it doesn't start at point B. Jason: [21:10] Yeah the you know it's you mentioned then the Netflix. Effect on the cultural zygous fun fun stat on Queen's gamut it drove the sale of millions of chessboard and caused hundreds of people to start playing chess. I do one of the things that comes out strongest in in the book to me and that you alluded to upfront is sort of the difference between trading and investing. You know I always have people come up to me and they're like hey you know a lot about these retail companies what's a good investment and I'm like. I have no idea can you can you talk a little bit about sort of what you mean by sort of fundamental investing versus trading. Mark: [21:56] Well I sum it all up in the pithy expression don't play quarters I find playing quarters is almost a Fool's game the number of times I get questions you know what should I buy for the quarter and for little sophisticated institutional investors that could be I've got a position in. [22:15] Amazon or Google or Twitter and you know do I should I be you know heading into the position prior to earnings or you know facing back and adding to it more afterwards okay that's a different setup but if you're just playing a company for that quarter pop the problem is quarterly earnings reactions there's two things that drive them. Fundamentals great get the fundamentals right that it's expectations so the quarter trades are really about expectations you may get the quarter right you may be right that Nvidia or Roblox are going to have super strong quarters because I see how many of my friends kids are all over Roblox you maybe well right on that but you have to know you know what the market is actually expecting and numbers can go Revenue can accelerate but if the bar is higher than that then you're going to see these stocks trade off it happens a lot so I just unless you're unless you're a pro less you're in day in and day out. You know working working these stocks and really have a sense of where the expectations are. I think it's just a Fool's game to play play stocks just four quarters instead you know you want to stick with stocks for the you know you want to find an asset that you think is going to be. [23:29] Materially bigger in two to three years down the road and you think it's high quality based on some of the screens I threw out then stick with that name and don't try to play around the quarters and it's in fact sometimes you can use weakness or strength around the quarter to adjust your position but don't use it too initiator close out a position at the then you fall trap to these expectations game that is very hard to participate in if you're just a regular you know retail investor and you can make just as much money just staying invested in some of these great assets. Jason: [23:59] That is great advice and it's I certainly resonate with the sticking with the Investments I am curious though on the other end of that on the really long Horizon you mentioned you've you've been had a buy on Amazon for like 15 years. Wait. Like are you going to have a buying them for the next 15 years is that how I mean like does there come a point when they achieve their potential and you have to start worrying about them getting on the other side of the Hill. Mark: [24:26] Yeah I think you can I think you can one look for the fundamental towel and so I'm going to I'm going to spin over to another stock I talked about in the book Priceline. Which is actually the single best performing S&P 500 stock for like a 10 year period 2005 to 2015 phenomenal stock travel name everybody knows it William Shatner excetera although they're real secret sauce with what they did in European markets but. But that's a company that you know sustained premium growth like they were growing their bookings in the revenue 40 percent year over year for years and years and years and years and that's what powered that that that stock and when it stopped materially ah performed Market was when the growth rate decelerate it below 20%. [25:10] And so I don't want to you know create a hard and fast rule but I do feel strongly about this twenty percent rule 20 percent you know we're close to it you know don't don't Nick me at 19.8% you know could close to twenty percent is unusual rare growth. [25:23] And the markets usually pay up for that and when you see a company over time either because of Miss execution it happens or Market maturity and their growth rates you know kind of slide below 20% then that's when you reconsider your position that's a simplistic rule as a lot of caveats to that when I see with Amazon here is despite the size of this business I think they're still growing 20% for the next five years so in that if that's the case. [25:48] You know the simple rule of thumb is companies that can grow like. They can I like to see stocks that can double in in three years in order to do that you kind of have to do you know 20 to 25 percent earnings growth that's what a Maps out too. And you know you can double a stock in 3 years your handily beating the market in almost all time periods. And so when I see what it'll change my opinion really on Amazon is if I believe that this company is going to go X growth it's going to go you know well below 20 percent Revenue growth I just don't see that in the next couple of years given how much growth they have in retail in NE ws and cloud computing and in some of these really newer areas that I'm really interested in whether they really can crack the code on groceries and they can that's a large opportunity and business supplies Industrial Supplies I think that's a very underappreciated part of Amazon's business so I don't see myself changing my opinion on Amazon although you don't want things that we talked about this earlier that I love to see your founder LED companies that's no longer the case with with Amazon so that's you know at some level I've got slightly less conviction than the in the by case but I'm going to stick with it as long as the numbers prove out right and long as I can see this path that's consistent 20% Revenue. Scot: [26:59] Yeah and this is kind of breaking out of the book thing but since you brought up Amazon it wouldn't be a Jason Scott show if we didn't kind of double click on that what did any thoughts on the Q2 and Q3 earnings feels like they're slowing down a bit and feeling some of the labor and see what we call Supply pain on the show are you are you getting nervous about it or you think it's just a little one of their little kind of investment phases. Mark: [27:23] I called the six billion dollar kitchen sink that's how much lower their guidance was for operating income in the December quarter then then what the street was looking for like she was looking for close to eight billion and they guided to billions six billion dollar kitchen sink and they threw it all in there wage inflation you know you right you drive that route 95 on the east coast and you'll see Amazon Amazon is hiring Billboards up and down the East Coast Seaboard I did it recently so yeah they're aggressively hiring at higher wages that's impacting their margins there still some covid related cost shipping they're just not able to a sufficiently source and bring in product and so they have to bring in product into the the ports that aren't optimized for their distribution Network so just a lot of. [28:14] Positive blowing up now the question you have to ask yourself as an investor is are those are those cost increases elective structural discretionary temporary it's kind of like which of those are they the more that you can make a determination that the cost bikes are temporary the more you stick with the name if you think there's something structurally changed about Amazon okay that's different I don't think there's anything structurally changed about Amazon and certainly not its competitive position and then the last thing what I really like to see. [28:44] Frankly is this company. I mean the level of investment this company is making its distribution Network you know you talked about Facebook earlier they're dumping 10 billion into the metaverse which I think there's a there there but I don't know Amazon is dumping billions and billions into its own Logistics Network like they're doubling down on their core competency you bet I'll stick with that and what they're going to what's going to come out of that is even faster and faster delivery and they're going to prove out this concept what I call shipping elasticity the faster you ship the more that people are going to use you in a more of their of the more of their wallet and per-share you're going to Amazon's going to get so we're going to actually going to Super up one day delivery and then they're going to Super up super same day delivery and I think they'll be able to just grab more and more and offer more and more products to people so I like those kind of investment initiatives so I think a lot of that margin pressure by the way it was really due to these kind of elective investments in the infrastructure they added more distribution capacity the last two years than Walmart has in its history. That's how aggressive Amazon is being an eye you know my guess is that third we're going to see dramatic market share gains from Amazon in the next 12 months so I like those companies that kind of really lean in bendin and the double down on our core competency that's what the Amazon is doing now. Scot: [30:00] Yeah. The Press is making a lot of noise around Shopify versus Amazon and Shopify is kind of amplifying that with they're arming the rebels and everything. Jason Connor makes our I won't say his thing but he's not a believer in that I think it's kind of interesting in there's definitely no love lost between the company's what what's your take on that is that a real battle or is that just kind of genda by to kind of raise awareness for Shopify. Mark: [30:26] You have a quick point of view on that Scott. Scot: [30:29] I think Shopify becomes a Marketplace adjacent thinks that's crazy Jason what do you what I'll let you state your own opinion. Jason: [30:38] Yeah I mean I think Shopify is a phenomenal company and a good executor so I'm not throwing rocks at Shopify. They're to me they're not a competitor to Amazon they don't acquire customers they have no traffic there there. Piece of infrastructure and a great valuable piece of infrastructure but a piece of infrastructure. Doesn't draw any customers in so I call these people that are like oh man they're like Amazon they have all this aggregated gmv and they could sell ads to it and they can you know recruit more sellers because they have this this audience and all these things will they don't have any of those things they don't have a single b2c marketer. In their company and I would argue that's that's been one of Amazon's Court competencies is they've they use the flywheel to build this this huge audience that they get to sell all the. Their goods and services to so I just I don't think. They compete in any in any meaningful way and I think if Shopify were to try to become a true b2c company like Amazon. It would just be a phenomenal pivot it would be you know. Can't you know obviously they have the resources to fund trying for it but I'm not sure that's the best move for them. Mark: [31:57] Yeah I don't so I Do cover Shopify I've been really impressed with them I don't know them as well as I know Amazon but I've been super impressed. With them and terms of the product development and they are just providing more and more services to small Merchants so I think there's an are now bigger than eBay in terms of GM vo but I can never there's not enough disclosure to figure out so where's that GM D coming because I think some of that probably does come through eBay so a little bit of double counting that goes on in there but it's really impressive what they've pulled together whether they can actually aggregate demand in a way that Amazon has I think that's I think that's unlikely I think that's a very hard thing to do it's possible they do have a shop app I just, yeah I guess that's the action question we often ask ourselves do you think you're going to use the shop app to shop. [32:45] I don't think so I don't think people are going to do that but you know if they can get enough people to do that boy they will have really they will have some really circled it that you know because they got the infrastructure okay they're talking about building out fulfillment and doing fulfillment for people and spending a billion dollars on it sorry my friends you're gonna have to spend a heck of a lot more than a billion if you if you really want to you know compete. Because the bar is getting higher it's not getting lower it's getting higher in terms of funeral the speed of delivery eBay learn this the hard way and so shockfights Memphis spend a lot more than that so anyway there's a lot of wonderful things about Shopify and I don't know whether if you listening to slammed on by if you think they can build up an aggregate an audience I don't think they can so does it make doesn't make it a slam dunk by it's it's you know it's a deep three point shot put it that way. And you're not Steph Curry. Jason: [33:41] I think we're going back to the basketball references in the book. Yeah it you know I tend to agree I'm not I don't think the shop app you know has attracted an audience that uses it for shopping yet it's a shipping trapping tracking app at the moment. But the it is funny like there are lots of companies that facilitate huge amounts of gmv so I think of like. Excuse me and Akamai is a. Is a CDN that's that used by almost every retailer to help help sell stuff right and so if you said well what's the CD the gmv of Akamai well it's bigger than Amazons. Um but that doesn't mean that Akamai can compete with Amazon so yeah I don't know. [34:28] I do want to go back to Amazon earnings just briefly because I you know I think a lot of the Slowdown is kind of a covid blip and I don't know if you ever think of it this way but. They're there their times in history when. It feels like the external factors aren't a big influence and and you know some companies perform really well and other companies struggle so you know there could be a year when you see Home Depot doing really well and lows struggling and you say. There's something special about Home Depot that I might be interested in investing in at the moment it feels like the external environment for retail is having a. [35:07] Sort of a consistent effect on everyone right and so you look at the industry average is you look at all of them is on Spears and they all have sort of the same shape of deceleration. That Amazon has so it's to me it's hard to attribute that to some. Some fundamental flaw in Amazon but there is one thing I noticed this quarter that it was interesting and I wanted to get your opinion about because I know as an investor you like seeing companies that have pricing power. And you know of course Amazon famously raise the price of prime a while back and seems like that was wildly successful this quarter. They've raised the price for grocery delivery there now charging ten dollar delivery fees even for Prime members. And then this week we saw that they made a pretty substantial increase to the cost of f ba which is you know the fundamental service used by almost all marketplace hours and they they just raise the price of that by like five percent and I'm curious do you look at that as a good sign that hey. They have pricing power and they're doing so well that they can command those prices or to me it's a potential warning sign because I feel like Amazon is so. Zealous an advocate of the flywheel in the flywheel is all about driving costs down to get scale up I just was surprised to see some of these like price increases in in you know. Especially grocery which isn't super mature yet. Mark: [36:33] Well I'm not sure really of the answer to your question Jason it's a it's a it's a really good thoughtful question on the on the groceries I think they raised it because the unit economics were just not working for them in terms of grocery delivery that's that's my guess they also you know yet to have that get to really crack the code on the grocery business and so I sort of see that as they tried it and it just can't right size the economics of they got to charge more for it so I read that kind of negatively what did the raising fees to sellers. But my guess is it's a mixture of things but it's largely driven that my guess is that this largely driven off of Just Rising. [37:17] You know Rising infrastructure costs have been rising shipping costs I mean Rising the two costs that they called out specifically on the earnings call my recall is correct is our steel costs because of all of that dish construction they're doing with their fulfillment centers and trucking services and so my guess is that they've they're doing is not necessarily the right size the economics is I think the economics are working but because they want to try to keep their unit economics relatively intact. And that's sort of the way I think they thought about the raising the price of prime it wasn't they did it because they could. It's they did because they sort of had to like the costs are rising it's just that what I found interesting in terms of pricing power is van acceleration in in Prime ads you know post that price increase like that and so does Netflix to me Netflix is essentially raise fees use the fees to you know generate more Revenue by more content is like a flywheel that they've worked with their make the service more bringing more users allows them to get a little bit raised money just a little bit more so it's not so much raising fees to extract excess profits it's raising fees to further accelerate growth and the value proposition is strong enough that they can do that and not lose customers that's that's that that there's this is subtle nuance and maybe it's too salty but but I think it's an important it's important difference it's not it's no it's raising pricing not to raise margins it's raising pricing to fuel growth. [38:46] And when you so either way it's good I happen to think you you want to the the better one is the latter one is a more impressive the latter one is more impressive because you're raising pricing just to Goose your margins you know you just put a Target on your back. Scot: [39:03] Reading the book made me nostalgic and maybe we'll do a little bit of a lightning round but one of the companies you wrote about that I kind of forgot about and those interesting was Zulily I remember when they came on the scene and we were all like. They were all blown away by how fast they could just get product up right they had this thing where they could. They could have most of those kids so they'd get like all these little kid models in there and throw some clothes on them take a picture and then like changed outfit take another so they could do something like you know thousand different products an hour or something. What's your recollection on Zulily. Mark: [39:40] She really is that was one of my calls that didn't work and. So I and I learned some lessons from that I think to me the lesson I drew a to do with value proposition they had wonderful cohort disclosure in their S1 when they went public I mean it was truly impressive. And you know the they also raise kind of an analytical question because the first it's not too dissimilar to stitch fix today the first three or four million customers were extremely happy the question is. Were there another three to four million customers that could be extremely happy and the problem that Zulily faced is that it customer value proposition had one major flaw which is that you couldn't return product if you didn't like it they didn't they didn't accept returns oh I'm sorry there were two problems and there was no Speedy Delivery you know you could get stuff in seven days and 20 days. That was good for the first day of the first three to four million customers who are fine with that you break into the mainstream and you mean I can't return something if I don't like it you mean I gotta wait how many days until I get something like that ended up. [40:45] And it was very hard being the survey you really had to go with gut instinct on that to realize in advance that they were going to hit a wall in their growth. Geez when you saw what happened to their growth rate when they went public it was Triple digits six quarters later they were doing 10 percent Revenue growth they hit the wall because the value proposition. Wasn't strong enough and then they end up going going private that to me was kind of a lesson which is you know the. [41:10] Growth was impressive but that value proposition if it's not if they hadn't they didn't have it nailed down and you knew from the beginning I knew from the beginning what the two Falls were I just I didn't know when it would hit them and hit them earlier than I thought so you know it gives us another reason to really focus on how compelling do you think this value proposition is how many you know will that can the can a customer base double given the existing value prop. And that's one of the big lessons if I spin it a little bit I mean that's to me is and Scott you look through this entire history like you know the first decade of the internet the king of online retail wasn't Amazon it was eBay and they had like six times seven times the market cap of Amazon that's completely changed and why is it change and I think in part it's because of the value prop I mean Amazon just beat him on price selection and convenience year in and year out and that really mattered but a more recent example in my book. [42:02] In literally and figuratively is doordash and GrubHub and that's example many people will will know but grub have that great business model wonderful investor Centric business model High margins and doordash had this you know generating tons of losses but they had the better value prop because they had more restaurants selection and the end of the day that they want and they were able to scale up and generate serve reasonable profits over time that was the case where my quick tag line is you know customer-centric companies. Beat investor Centric companies most of the time in market cap and market share Amazon versus eBay, GrubHub versus doordash those two examples really drilled that less than to me. Jason: [42:48] Yeah I've been fighting those companies because you know there. They're like increasingly overlapping with a lot of my Commerce clients and like you know a big. A big sort of disruption and commerce right now is all these ultra-fast delivery services and you know it seems pretty clear that doordash and Uber are both gonna want to play directly in that space so it seems like some of those those sectors are on a collision course to chase that Tam. Mark: [43:15] I think you're right Jason I also think Amazon I mean you're talking about logistics like that's Amazon's competency so whether you need to. Whether you're going to vertically integrate and do that or whether you going to do that virtually you know Foo you know a gig economy Network. I don't know which which is going to work better long-term but yeah and you know it's going to raise the bar and make it more and more expensive for anybody to operate in that in that segment I have a bias that Amazon in the end wins that but it's big enough of a market it's so early stage that you can have multiple winners for the next five years I don't know that you can have multiple winners for the next 10 years. Jason: [43:56] Yeah there was a funny question in the Amazon earnings call someone asked about ultra-fast delivery in the CFO kind of I thought brilliantly threw some shade on it he's like. He said something to the effect of we like where we are and ultrafast like we have one hour delivery on about 178,000 skews right now and we're you know we're going to continue to scale that and I don't know how many people follow this but all of the competitors in this space are are desperately trying to figure out how to do one hour delivery for like 7000 skus. So so like they're you know they definitely are gonna be able to leverage the infrastructure there and I'm sure they're making some big investments in that space too. Another area that's that's been kind of interesting lately and I know you've been following this little bit is obviously there are all these privacy changes and the depreciation of the third-party cookies and especially the IDF a you know mobile privacy changes. That Apple has instituted and that obviously had a pretty pronounced impact on the value of some companies like Snap recently A View you have a opinion there is that. Is that a blip or is that a systemic change. Mark: [45:08] I think it's a big pothole in the road. But it's not there but the but the it's a big pothole in the road but it's not a bridge that it's not a collapsed bridge that get that mountain out. Yeah so poor that hey yes. Yes it is yeah that's it that's pretty I mean that's a big pothole that idea Fay allowed Facebook to offer amazing attribution to millions and millions and millions of businesses and now that's gone and and and to their credit to Facebook's credit they warned about it for a year two snaps discredit they didn't warn about it ever and so that's why their stock went off you know 22 decline 25 percent whereas Facebook stock even the numbers came in weaker than expected you know kind of fell off to the 3% and by the way then is traded up above where it was at earnings time so what I mean very intrigued by is I think it will be a son of that idea of a. [46:12] You know child of idea say I like I think there's so much at stake here both from the advertising platforms like Facebook you know and Google's to some extent a little bit and Snapchat but also for you know the millions of marketers out there who you don't you were able to thank thanks to Facebook use of people's privacy data you know from right or wrong I mean that's what that's what they they did I mean this help Merchants really know which of their campaigns worked and allow them to you know run creative and that creative could be automatically you know a be tested abcdefgh like 8 times 8 different ways in which ever those creatives work best. You could actually beat successful one of them then you can just pivot all of the dollars behind that one campaign you know campaign h for campaign be your campaign e.e. and that's just a wonderful way to help these small businesses you know really succeed and that's been taken away now you know there's I think there's first a little bit of shock shoot I can't get the attribution I had I'm going to pull a my marketing dollars but marketers got a market. [47:13] And I think you're going to see those dollars come back and my guess is that Facebook and other companies are going to find some way to do. Better targeting they may not quite get to idea that a type of levels but they were going to be able to do some sort of audience targeting they also have a lot of first-party data but they'll be able to do it in a way that doesn't that you know respect people's privacy and yeah you'll see those dollars come back so that's why I referred to as a pothole I it's a big pothole it's but it's not that it's not a bridge that just collapsed you know you're going to be you can they can they got stuck in that pothole more than anybody else but you know the cranes there whatever they're getting a tow trucks they're they're getting out of it they got to do some nobody work they'll fix the car and it'll be back on the road in part because they've got the talent to do it but in part because there are millions of small businesses that are given to going to give them the incentive to do it because they'll get those marketing dollars back once they figure out some of the idea that a. Jason: [48:09] Yeah I always like to remind people that are like The Skys Falling on the advertising industry that you know. It wasn't very long ago that we had much worse targeting than than we have in digital even with idea of a I mean targeting used to be deciding which publication you were going to print your ad in. And they still got a lot of money in the advertising industry so like I kind of suspect that that marketers are going to figure out you know the best ways to invest their money even if it maybe isn't quite as. As real-time as people got used to for a short while. Mark: [48:42] I think you're right Jason. Scot: [48:45] So Mark you in the book you recap kind of this awesome 25-year career and you know one of the things I've learned is if you're in the game of making predictions you know that it's kind of humbling but then you kind of slowly but surely get better at it right you never get to kind of you know a hundred percent but over time you get better and like like for example you learned the lesson of. The companies that are customer focused to do better than investor focused think founder based in that kind of as you as you take those backward 25-year learnings and project them forward what are some of the things that you get excited about looking out the next five or ten years. Mark: [49:23] Well in terms of Trends even the next year or two I think whoever solves. Marketing attribution is going to be worth a lot more in two years than they are today just because there's so many businesses so many marketers that will pay for that. So I you know so that's that's kind of a debt that whoever whoever fills in the pothole that's going to be a very valuable company it's going to be a lot more valuable to years and it is today my guess is that there's gonna be Facebook so I'm interested in that then there's thing this thing called The Medic verse which I don't know this is just virtual reality just renamed do a Google Trends search on metaverse just watch that just spiked up in the last love so you know you kudos to the person who came up with that idea may be excited maybe Jason or Scott maybe was you I. Jason: [50:09] It's just a rebranded second life. Mark: [50:12] Okay and. But but you know the fact that it was two things that kind of struck me there's some pretty big companies throwing a lot of big money at metaverse you know Facebook Microsoft there's a bunch of others and then there's this Roblox generation people young people who are perfectly comfortable living in the meta verse in virtual reality and. [50:38] You know participating in concerts safely and you know and shopping and communicating and entertaining and learning. [50:49] And learning through the metaverse and so you know we knows 8 18 year olds you know get out into the real world you know they're going to be perfectly comfortable in the meadow verse maybe not the way you know not the way that we will naturally be but you know though they'll help us figure it out and so so I'm really intrigued by the metaverse I think it is going to take 5 to 10 years because that to really develop and I'm trying to trying to figure it out who the big winners are but but I'm very intrigued by that. [51:18] Yeah I'm also got one of those oculist you know I've gotten two different versions Generations the it's the iterations of the Oculus Rift and you know i-i've always it's kind of like when I first saw the Kindle you know the first Kindle I ever got was pretty darn kludgy but you know I just love the idea that you could just download any book on the your kludgy device will you know whenever you whenever you were in a Wi-Fi area and and I and you and you just saw how that device got better and better each iteration and so I just think about that with these with these virtual reality headsets I mean they're clumpy their clunky their kludgy it's kind of embarrassing to be have a picture of you taking them but you know just you can imagine already know how much they've improved over the last couple of years and just think ahead is it possible the next five to seven years it's going to be just it's going to be like putting on a pair of sunglasses I think that's what we should be thinking about if you can easily put on a pair of sunglasses and and enter the metaverse and have you know share a virtual you know in presence experience that sounds but that sounds odd or not but you can do that, I think a lot of people will do that and you know the education the work applications around that so I'm very intrigued by that. Jason: [52:28] So you're saying that that could be chewy.com to Google Glasses pets.com. Mark: [52:36] Yes yes I love that yes I hadn't thought about that way yeah and by the way I've got my Google Glass here you know I'm. Got that I got that early version I got the Amazon Fire Phone you know but just be the the early failures sometimes see these I mean they're kind of in the right direction I don't know exactly what there's a there's a backstory to Google Glass that we only partially know but anyway they have the concept is there and and you know the big iterations that these products do get better and as they get better easier cheaper lighter cooler you know like Main Street cooler not Silicon Valley cooler then then markets can appear. Scot: [53:17] I think that's something the three of us have in common I think the three of us are probably the only people that ordered and probably still own an Amazon Fire Phone. Jeff Ellis. Mark: [53:29] And I've Got My Socks.com puppet to it's in my office I put the hits I got it as a warning. Scot: [53:31] I have one of those too yeah we all I guess we all have one of those too. Jason: [53:36] That that puppet ended up being the most valuable asset from pets.com sidenote like I don't know if you followed it but there was there was there was a whole intellectual property fight with Triumph the comedy dog and all that stuff yeah. Unattended value unintended value creation. Scot: [53:53] Mark were you you know we've used up about an hour of your time we really appreciate you coming on the show to tell us about the book when's it come out where can people find it do you do you want them to order from that Seattle bookstore that we've been chatting about. Mark: [54:09] So yeah and thanks Scott Jason I've always enjoyed listening to your show I did tell you it beginning I your analysis recently all birds and Warby Parker I took the heart because I initiated Warby Parker as an analyst but I after after I've seen what your thoughts were on it. So thanks for having me on the show and to talk about the book nothing but Net 10 Timeless stock-picking lessons from one of wall Street's top Tech analyst I just like to nothing but net on a big Hoops fan. And my kids are hoops and that's been my email pack lines there's a lot of meaning for me in that that title it is available wherever fine literature is sold it is available on Amazon it's the it's a top bestseller now and in the business category so I've been I've been just it was just a it was a labor of love for me and throw like a chance to talk with both of you about it because you've lived through the sister just as much as I have and it's fascinating the lessons we can draw from. Jason: [55:01] Well Mark is been entirely our privilege and it's a great sign that you know just halfway through your career you had enough material for an amazing book so I can't wait to read the the sequel after the next half. Mark: [55:13] All right I will talk with will do it again in 25 years. Jason: [55:18] I'm booking it right now. Scot: [55:20] Bring our sock puppet are and pets.com puppets in our Amazon Fire Phone. Mark: [55:24] That's. Jason: [55:25] Yeah everyone else will be living in the metaverse at that point in no one's going to get it but it's cool. But Mark really appreciated your time and until next time happy commercing!

Welcome to the show.   Dr. Lori  02:04 Who's that professional? She sounds really cool. Like, who was she talking about? Like, well, we are professionals time to time I'm like, no. That's right   Roy Barker  02:15 No, no, I've been on those shows before where they introduce you. And I'm like, Okay, let's stop here, because it's only going to go downhill. Well, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to be with us. Really appreciate it. We're excited. Tell us a little bit about how you got here. I mean, you've got a lot going on, but you know, is helping people. Did you grow up wanting to be a professional that helped people? Or did you kind of take the long and winding road into this?   Dr. Lori  02:46 I guess I've always been I mean, I've always been very compassionate. And without knowing the word, empathic, you know, I didn't realize that till I got older. Originally, it was all animal based. So I wanted to be a vet, you know, and I love being around animals. And then I guess it was really in college. That's when you know, I mean, I took the I took, I took the four year plan, but I didn't know what the heck I was going to do. So I just kept switching my major and my brother, my might, I only have a two siblings, I have a brother and a sister, my brother and they're both much older than I and my brother was a chiropractor, he still is, and I really resonated a lot with that I knew I just I knew I didn't fit in the mainstream. And I definitely didn't want to just dispense drugs and stuff to people I just always believed in the power that made the body can heal the body. And so I opted to go into that. And then it was my transition over the year. So I've been a chiropractor for over 22 years. Wow. And I know I was like 10 when I graduated. Yeah. And so, um, and then, you know, I mean, it was great. And I and I did when I was first two years it was you know, it was great. I liked it, but I wasn't in love with it. And then I decided to you know, add something to my income. So I started teaching and I was teaching post secondary like anatomy and physiology classes pathology and and that's what I realized that what I was meant to do like and and I was a speaker since chiropractic school because they taught us to teach, you know, wellness and teach your patient so I definitely hit got bit with the bug, you know, the freaking bug. And so I knew I liked that but then teaching I was like wow, this is this is what I'm definitely passionate about. And I'm very good at you know, so I did that for years and almost two decades teaching. And then but a few years back I hit a really low point in my life. I had had depression since I was about 15 when I look back at is probably about since about 15 and had one major depressive episode but was not prepared for the major depressive episode we're going to have just about almost six years ago, and it was so bad. It was six months long, three weeks for suicidal and Oh, wow, I, when I finally started to come out of it, and I said, Okay, you know what I don't, I got to figure this out because I got to fix myself because all these years all these things, I was a kid. I never felt right. I never felt like I was myself. And then I started to really deep dive into like, the personal development. And it was at that point, when I started to really feel better. I said, Okay, I want to teach this. And so then, you know, you go on to the next phase, you're like, well, who does that? Oh, coaches, so you know, that you get certified to be a coach and, and it's evolved from that. So I love working with people like I love humans, I love animals, too. I actually love all creatures, and but humans, just we have so much potential. And so I look back at all the years that I wasted, because I just couldn't get out of my own way. So that got me to where I am today. And I love like, I'm so passionate about helping people, especially those that are really stuck. And especially those that deal with like depression and anxiety, which we have a hell a lot about that like, like the amount that we have. Now, with everything that's happened over the last year. It's just, I mean, before that it was already epidemic. Now it's even worse.   Roy Barker  06:18 Yeah, and I'm concerned a little bit. You know, we don't have to belabor that point. But, you know, we thought we would see, I guess some things happen in the beginning, but I think the government stepped in and provided some funding, which helped people you know, at least have shelter and eat and all these other programs. But now that the extra unemployment is going away, a lot of these rent, and utility. I don't say abatement because they weren't abatement they were more just kicking the can down the road. But a lot of these programs are ending. A lot of people are being forced to go back to work after they've enjoyed working from home for a year. So I mean, it's not working at all. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So there's just a lot of things coming together all at once. And I, you know, kind of makes me wonder, you know, what is this going to look like going through these next few months, and we've already you know, we're in the Dallas Fort Worth area. And we've already seen to me what I consider an exponential rise in crime and violent crime and things that people are doing. So anyway, I think everybody seems to be stressed and at their wit's end, and there's so many great things that we can do to help ourselves both mentally and physically.   Dr. Lori  07:34 Oh, for sure. I think I think the biggest challenge was that there were many people, not everyone, and not the majority, but many people that took last year as a moment to to breathe, and to slow down and assess things. And it was and it's those individuals who have done the have had the most success. Right? They realize that okay, this is not exactly we don't know, but to say that we'll be back on track. You know, remember, in the beginning of March, they were like, oh, we'll be back on track by the summer. And most people that were really thinking about it, we're on now it's not Yeah, it's gonna be like, probably about a year and a half. So I'll prepare for it, I'll make the shifts, I'll do what I need to do. Know, and knowing that even when that's up, then we have to shift again. So those people, I don't want to call them enlightened people, but I think they just took they just were more aware. They had the best time, versus the individuals who just wrote it and said, Oh, I can't work, okay, then the government's going to help me, oh, and I'm going to be home. And I and, and instead of like bettering themselves, and I'm not blaming, you know, the person, you know, you only know what, you know, I mean, that's, that's the reality, it's, but at the same time, that is a little bit of an excuse, because we are living in an age where you can find anything out, you can learn anything, and there was so much online, I mean, there was so much available, there were so many free courses, there was so many different things. So I, I feel like in some ways that we as humans didn't step up as much as we could have, you know, like, we people gained weight during COVID. You know, they ate like, you know, like, offley audio, and we just sort of, and I say we, because that was me in the beginning, like it was this did get overwhelming for me, but then I just like, Okay, that's enough. And you know, and actually lost 40 pounds in COVID, you know, during COVID. So, that's, that's awesome. I'm telling you, it's like, wow, you know, so, um, but it's but it for the rest. It was just sort of, you know, and then they come out and now they're like, Oh, my God, what am I going to do? I don't want to go back to work. I don't want this. I don't want that. But they sort of didn't prepare themselves. And, you know, so my hope is that for those of us that really kind of had a good mindset going in, and throughout that because I believe in Jay and I believe in the collective consciousness, you know, and we need to put that out there. We need to for those of us that that decided to start new projects and did really well in 2020. put that out there out there for all these other people that are floundering, and say you can do this, like you can do this, you just, you know, everything, as Marie Forleo says, everything is figured out double, you know, because because it is, you know, we have that ability, where that's what we have these fabulous brains for that reason.   Roy Barker  10:29 Well, and most people say they put on the COVID-19. And I said, Well, I'm an overachiever, I did the COVID 38. So no, oh, well, good for you. But, you know, we were out well, I'll speak for myself. But let Terry, I'll let her speak for her. But, you know, I think I was one of the lucky unenlightened ones that didn't really know what to expect. But it was such an opportunity for us to slow down. And I think after a couple months into it, we were like, we really needed to slow down as this, you know, everybody is out fast paced running here and running there. And, you know, now we've kind of made a pretty big switch is, you know, we're enjoying being home, we figured out things, you know, we have enough to do to keep 10 people busy around here. So it's never, it's never a shortage of something. But you know, getting out more in the back. I think Terry is, you know, when it's a long story we'll get into but you know, when she moved out here, a few years ago, it was like, she's not the Pioneer Woman, but you know, she's adopted, you know, she's got her herd of deer and some turkeys and other wildlife that she's taking care of now, I just got a herd of deer and squirrels, raccoons, wild turkeys weird. So, you know, that's our thing is, you know, we wake up in the morning and say, you know, we kind of laughingly call on customers, we say how many customers we have out that our customer down at the cornfield. So anyway, you know, we were I think we were lucky because like you said, I think and we were lucky to because we were able to continue working, it didn't really disrupt a lot of things, except the slowing down part, which I'm very thankful for. Yes. It's just nice to be able to take a breath and not always feel like you have to be somewhere else.   Terry  12:17 Yeah, and we took a lot of time to take took that time to work on our eating habits and different ways that we could eat to age better, as well as trying to lose a few pounds, you know, and it's trial and error, of course along the way. But, you know, just trying to figure out, I used to eat everything and anything and was grown up, I went when I grew up, it was on junk, junk food, you know, Chuck, dad would buy 12 bags, big grocery sacks full of Halloween candy, and we might give one away if we were lucky. The rest of it, he ate probably, you know, nine or 10. And we ate the other one. But we had to fight for it. You know, we just lived on peanut butter and chocolate. I'm telling you. And it was not a good. It wasn't I mean, it was good then but you know, you get older you start putting on the pounds, you don't even realize that it's happening. And and next thing you know, you're 56 and you're like what? Wait, oh, yeah. Oh, man, that just came out.   Dr. Lori  13:31 And you get diagnosed with something too. And then you sometimes have the audacity to go How did that happen? Well, you know, because we were taught to be detached like that, though. We're taught that, you know, I mean, how many times have you heard it's like, oh, you know, one minute, they're saying you kids really shouldn't eat this much sugar, Baba blah, and especially we're all around the same age. So it's like we that really wasn't, you know, they say, Oh, you know, the kids really shouldn't eat that much sugar, but it didn't matter. They push it now with more statistics, but the you know, back in the day, and even now it's like, well, you know, you could get away with it as your you know, you're gonna have to change when you get a little older, you can eat that way anymore. Don't   Terry  14:10 worry about it. Now, what   Dr. Lori  14:12 habits are habits and if they're instill that a young age, you know that it's funny, I hear this story a lot from people I hear, you know, because I talked to people about their, the their habits that were forged since they were younger, and especially with eating and I didn't I wasn't raised that way. I was actually my mother had very limited we were very limited on our sweet. A truly like we were not allowed to have sugar cereals. We were you know, we got ice cream every so often. And I look back and I'm like, wow, that's ungrateful. Like I ate a lot of vegetables ate a lot of fruits, you know, but it was when I got older and I was on my own. I was like, Oh, I could buy this myself. You know, and that's and so sometimes we it's not even that you're raised that way. It's just no matter what. It's one Once you get the taste for it, it's it's a drug, it's especially sugar, you know, and so you get it in there and you're like, I feel really good after I ate this. Why is that? You know, you know, of course you don't ask why that is you just say, Oh, this, I gotta have the more correct, right, you don't realize that it's literally your chemicals being released in your brain that are saying, No, no, no, you want, this is really good stuff to have, you know. And so we tend to be forced into the change. You know, it's when you get the, the doctor says to you, oh, you know, you're, you know, you're pre diabetic, or, you know, your blood pressure is up there, and we're gonna put you on meds. And what's scaring me nowadays, is that the generation behind us are not as scared about the meds, though, like, our generation was probably the first generation to hit their 40s and 50s. And be told you need to go on meds. And we were like, what do you got to be kidding me, you know, like that my parents didn't go on meds till they were in their 60s, you know, like that. And then we're like pushing pull fighting a little bit. But I mean, I've seen over the years, the generations behind us, you know, they're, they're getting on meds in their 20s. And they're not even on just one med. And so for them to say the doctor said, Well, now you didn't need to be on this. But alright. It is what it is not realizing that just some changes in your diet is could be a big game changer. You know? Well, I   Roy Barker  16:29 think you're, you know, what, you talked about habits. And I don't think there's some data out there that proves this. But, you know, like my generation, we had a couple fast food places. I mean, we live in a pretty big town, there were a couple fast food, places that I knew about that, you know, on a Friday night, or Saturday was kind of a treat to go get a hamburger. Right now, they're on every corner and you go down, you know, we have like, restaurant rows here, where there'll be one street with nothing but fast food restaurants. And the surprising thing is, I noticed this when my kids were gone. But you could drive by at nine o'clock at night. And there were car loads of families that were just now going through eaten, you know, drive through stuff at nine o'clock at night. And it It surprised me, but I've heard sense about this study, that's just saying that, you know, because of that they were raised in fast food drive restaurants that they have, there are a lot of issues with these, you know, with the younger generation that 20 to 30 year old group now because of that,   Dr. Lori  17:31 yeah. Oh, for sure. And it's not, you know, that we always talk like, we always hear this about the fast food places, the fast food places. But even even beyond that piece, you know, they Some people say oh, no, but I don't we don't we don't go to fast foods. You know, we go food shopping. But if you're buying packaged food that goes into the microwave, and it's just, it's already made, and it's it's the same thing. It's the same exact thing. And so it I think it's a false, like sense of whatever, that they feel a little bit better, like, Oh, I'm not, you know, I'm not going out to the fast food restaurant. But you know, so I go to the food store. And again, it's all convenience, you know, our convenience of killing off, you know, I mean, listen, who was out, like, think about when we were kids who was out at nine o'clock at night, with their parents going to eat? We were already like in bed, you know, whether you're going to sleep or not, you're like, No, we ate at like dinner time. And remember back in the day, like the TV used to go off at a certain time like that. And they or they used to have the commercial. It's 10 o'clock. Do you know where your children? Are you ever that way? So it's like, but now it's like parents just, it's like, their kids are up late. They're out. I mean, okay, I could see I'm a little guilty with this with my kids. Like, my kids are definitely blue. The bedtime, you know, I used to go to bed really early, but my kids go to bed a little bit later than I did. But I like you said you're out at night and 910 o'clock at night you have a family out, just getting ready to eat or shopping at Walmart or whatever, you know, and and I'm in my head going is late for these kids to be out like what is this doing to their sleep schedule their you know, their their chemical balances. I mean, all this stuff, but it's become so accepted. Yeah, you know, so it's, it's and then that all ties in so if you if you're not getting the sleep you want and you're and your body's stressed out, you crave the credit your foods, because that's just the way I mean, you crave the carbs, you crave the and the process stuff. And so it's like all that sets up.   Roy Barker  19:36 And even when my kids were small, you know, we had we lived in a small town at that time. So we were very structured dinner at five or six o'clock kids in bed by eight or 830. I couldn't imagine trying to get a child out of bed in the morning to go to school that didn't go to bed till 11 or 12 o'clock at night. I mean, it was a fight with two that were getting plenty of sleep that we'd have to call the SWAT team and Do not   Terry  20:02 go when.   Roy Barker  20:03 But you're right. And that's what I noticed about me is sleep deprivation starts the trigger of, I don't feel good anyway. Now I need I think if I, for some reason, it's that I want to eat something to get a little burst of energy, well, then you have to keep doing it, you know, you get a little high than he get the valley. It's such a bad cycle to get into, because that's where then I don't feel like getting out and exercising or moving. And to me, it's, I've begun to see that that is like the beginning of the end for me when things go wrong.   Dr. Lori  20:41 Yeah. And it takes the it takes the awareness to stop it, you know, say, Okay, yeah, this isn't good. And this isn't, you know, and we're, when we talk about I mean, you know, everybody these days talks about habits like, Oh, well, this habit and this habit, and I don't think people even still really know how severe bad habits can be habits are not we're not just talking about the brain like subconsciously not thinking about we were saying that it's also it's a physical habit. You know, it's not just about that you're craving something, your body physically, it's just like they talked about with smoking, you know, for some odd reason, we always understand that with smoking, we're like, oh, well, there's the chemical addiction. There's the emotional psychological victim of there's a physical ditch and holding the cigarette in your hand. Well, it's the same thing with food. It's like holding a soda cup in your hand slipping through the straw. It's, it's having a bag of chips sitting down next to you, while you're, you know, watching TV. And your body is literally physically come accustomed to the fact that when you sit and watch this show, you're usually munching on this. And so even if you try your best, and you say, Okay, I'm not eating this anymore, and I'm not gonna eat past this hour, you plop down and put that TV show on, you're sitting in the same exact seats that you normally do. And all of a sudden, you wonder why 10 minutes, and you say to yourself, I'm not even hungry, this is fabulous. This is great, I'm gonna feel good. And then 10 minutes later, your body's like, Where's the chit? Like, all sudden, you're hungry? And you're like, wait, but this just doesn't make sense. I was just, I thought about it, I'm full. Now, why am I wanting to eat the chips, because that is the whole package. And you've trained and we train our brain, and inevitably, our body to do it, you know. And again, it's all about awareness, you have to become a conscious majority of your day. And it's like, we're only like, conscious about 5% of our day, right? So so in order to change it, you have to be conscious, a lot more, and it's exhausting. It really is, you know. And so in the beginning, some people are really gung ho about it, but that's why we lose the momentum. And that's why we, we, we fall off the wagon, so to speak, because we just we lose it as we, the more fatigued we get. So that's why in the morning, everybody's so perfect. Like, people get up in the morning, like, I'm not eating this today, I'm good. And you're good all day. And then as the day goes on, you hit the afternoon, and then all of a sudden, you're starting to feel it, it's a little harder, it's a little hard to say no to this, and then by a certain point, that's why sometimes I would say to my clients don't eat, you're not going to eat past this time anyway. But if you find that you're getting hungry, and you cannot, you know, like you're it's really becoming overwhelming. Go to bed, like go to bed. And and if they're like, well, I don't want to go to bed at like nine o'clock at night and blah, blah. I'm like, why not? Why got too much work to do. But if you're working and staying up on your computer, and you feel like you want to munch on something, then just say, you know what, I'm just gonna finish my work tomorrow, get up earlier, tomorrow, get up earlier, go to bed now. And then you won't feel so guilty because you didn't eat before you went to bed. And how many times do we even when we're hired? It's not even that we're actually hungry. We it's funny, we get cravings that we want to eat, like we're quote, hungry when we're tired. And when we're thirsty. Sometimes thirst is what we're what we're like, we're, we're dehydrated.   Roy Barker  24:10 Yeah. And I'm like, I'm dehydrated all the time, because I don't like water. And, you know, talking about habits. You know, I was in the habit of always having a Coca Cola in my hand. The It's been a while but one day, I mindlessly wandered over to the cabinet. And they were chickpeas. So it wasn't totally bad. But you know, I had my hand in there before. I told Terry I'm I already knew he was yes. And no, we're not really wasn't even given it a thought. You know, luckily I stopped but the other night we had a good dinner, little vegetables with a little piece of meat. It was awesome. It was the right size. And then about an hour later I'm like, Oh, I can sure use a snack and she's like, Well, are you hungry again? And I stopped the dawn. I'm like no, my belly felt all full but I felt it in my chest and I don't know why it just kind of like a sinking feeling up there. But, you know, if you really stop and be mindful about where is this feeling coming from? Like, then it's like, No, I'm not hungry at all. And I was able to push through I wasn't happy about it but right. Habit because, you know, I, prior to Terry, you know, that was my thing is, you know, I would have all this bad night eating, you know, I'd sit in front of the TV and eat some popcorn, I have to admit, I'd get in the car at 10 o'clock at night and drive up to the little quick stop place. Maybe they have nachos or ice cream, just a little snack just to kind of pick me up. And I'm like, you know, like what you said, now thinking back and let me just go to bed because that's all I was really doing. was fighting sleep for a fifth, correct?   Dr. Lori  25:49 Yeah. And why? Like, why do we, you know, and what you were saying about? Uh, it's you do, it's like before you know it, you're eating it. And then your brain catches up and you go, what am I doing wrong? And but the interesting thing is, for those out there listening, it's like once it is it's you have to be you have to be mindful, you cannot mindlessly do it. Because mindlessness does go subconscious. And you're just you're on autopilot. So if you're changing the habit, you force it, you force it, you're forced to have to think about it. But interestingly, the once you do it, and it, it catches, you also want to make sure that you honor yourself with saying, When thought when you're presented with the item that you use to eat or drink or whatever, and you have no desire for it, you have to honor yourself and celebrate it. You know, like I was thinking about this the other day, you know, I could not remember the last time I had soda. And I was a big soda drinker. I mean, I wasn't like I didn't have it all the time in the house. I did. I didn't actually the cool part is I never bought it for my house. But I did go out a lot. Like I'd be on my way back from work and I'd stop you know, in the kids and blah, blah, blah. And so it was had soda soda soda and, and soda was like sprite was my beer. When I would do yard work was the people like are sweating, they drink their beer over sprite was my thing. So we're like, oh, you're going to run out to this lunch to go get us something at me, you know this and give me sprite? So as we were talking about it the other day, and I'm like, yeah, you know, I haven't had soda in and I stopped for a second I said, like, I don't even remember the last time I had, so it must be like six years, you know, like six years. And I, I really loved saying it. Like I loved saying and I was like, I have not had it in six years. Like this is really, really cool. You know, and again, I didn't have that big of an addiction to it. But to be able to say that and, and it's whatever, you know, if we do happen to go out to eat, you know, whether it is a good food fast, you know, we'd say that or the or, or just a restaurant, you know, I never asked for that, you know, like, it's it's the it's always Water, water, water, you know, and don't think twice about it anymore, you know. And so I I'm happy about me and I still, you know, there's still pieces that I do struggle with that I have to be very ridiculously mindful of not eating. But I'm so glad that there's certain pieces that I've let go and it's so nice. It's so nice to not even think about it.   Roy Barker  28:24 And that I've cut way down. I mean, years ago, it was worse. But that soda just, you know, I guess it's I don't think it's really all as harmless as what they make it out to be. You know, I've heard none at all that this store is dying. Yeah, yeah, that's nice. And eventually your body. It's getting some kind of a glucose out of it. So it uses that. But anyway, that's been tough. And also thinking about other triggers. Like we did a lot of soul searching on ice cream, because that is my thing. I mean, I can eat ice cream, breakfast, lunch and dinner. I don't need anything else. It's got, you know, it's all the food, all the food groups all rolled into one. But, you know, we started talking about efficiency. Well, it's like I told somebody one time like aspirin, it's just frozen cereal. But we trace this back about why it's such a big thing. And it's interesting that my two grandfather's and my dad. It's like whenever we had a celebration, that is that was the go to like I'd go over to my grandparents and be you know, it's just a little thing. You know, I'd be out there helping him push the lawnmower around, around or whatever and we put in a good day's work. Let's go get an ice cream. So one grandpa took me up to the drugstore. And then the other one. They had a dairy queen right up at the corner of their screen in a busy street. So let's show up the Dairy Queen. We need a break and then dad same way You know, it'd be at his work come with him even into my teenage years and he had always come out and stopped me and like, let's go get an ice cream. So there's a little dq down down the road from him. And it's so vivid, my memory of setting in that dq. With him the jukebox, this will give away some age, but there's like a Van Morrison song playing. I mean, I can see it just like it happened this morning. So anyway, I think that also, maybe there's a lot of the emotional stuff that's tied to anything is that, you know, that was good time spent with, you know, my loved ones for sure. But it was also reward for a job well done. So there's a lot more to it than, you know, just,   Terry  30:45 you were sad. And all that.   Dr. Lori  30:47 Yeah. That's what makes it so challenging. When people are, you know, like, it's, it's, it's so easy to say, oh, we're gonna switch to a clean diet, and we're not going to eat processed anymore, and we're not going to have sugar anymore, and we're not going to take in dairy anymore. and blah, blah, blah. And it is, you know, on paper, on paper, it's so easy, but, but when what when you start to I mean, listen, I grew up Italian. So like, I mean, I remember vividly going to my grandmother's, every other weekend, the whole entire family would pile into her split level house. And we would have multiple courses. And inevitably, you'd always have the macaroni That's what you call that and the sauce and the meatballs and the sausages and then they take out the pastries after and the espresso and, and to me, it's you know, it's like any most Italians will tell you that Italian Americans especially that, that it's it was always around food and, and there was always a joyful moment. And so, you know, I'll even to this day, I mean, I don't eat pasta anymore. But I'll To this day, like when somebody does have pasta, that's what I think of like, I think of Oh, you know, grandma's house. And, and you know, when the one thing I will say this, though, is that, you know, when we were all younger, not that I'm making an excuse for it, but when we were all younger, the quality was much better. So like if you were eating the pastas, and if you were eating the ice creams, it was so different than it was now even the sugar was different, it was still addictive, it was still not good. But But now the the amount of chemicals that they put in these things and the flavoring and it's just, it's we are so not just addicted, chemically but and physically but but it's it's actually carrying us off, like we're the this is not good stuff anymore. And, and it and it's it's like you know, it bothers me because we focus so much on not that we shouldn't you know, like this whole thing with, with what happened last year in the virus, it's but we have to really step up and look at the bigger picture here that we you know, our bodies are really, really powerful, we can really ward off a lot of stuff. But the more hips we ate, the less effective we become. And so, you know, I was always taught from a young age, you know, outside in, you know, the boy, whatever would do the power that made the body heals the body and your body is the ability to heal. And but you it's just like a car, you put lousy gas in the car, the car's not gonna last as long you know, and, and when we continuously put lousy stuff in and actually there's been research that shows us that generations of lousy food, have it have made the diabetes and the heart disease more prevalent in a younger age. So what they the renewer researchers saying that Okay, so my you know, the the those that were born in the set, you know, in the 70s in the 60s, you're one you were like one generation of the junk like that, that's when it kind of started it was it was starting a little early for that but that's when it really started but if you had kids and then your kids had the junk and then your kids had the junk they're really setting themselves up for some really because they didn't even get you know, the the start they didn't even get the base work and it's and they're believing that genetically we're also passing on these corrupt gene. You know, like it's almost like passing on files or going to computer and passing in these on you know, and and when we look at it that way, boy that's really scary. But that's that's very bothersome to me especially   Terry  34:33 now that you said that. I mean I have two daughters and one of them the older one is eating. She She eats a lot better than than the younger one. The young ones still, you know trying to go in through the fast food grab and whatever's packaged fast, quick because she's on the go on the go on the go. And then not that my older ones not but she takes more time in is more conscious of her decisions, to eat whole foods more at Whole Foods, and she knows, you know what's good for her. And that's funny that you scientists now realize that I think they said that.   Roy Barker  35:15 Yeah, the other thing I think you mentioned was garbage in, garbage out. And that's one thing while we have started this, thinking more about it, because you know, we're getting into this the age where there's really no going back, and there's not a lot of time to adjust and make changes. And so I think, you know, the, what we carry into our older age is going to determine, you know, how well we age and we don't, we always say, we don't want to outlive our wellness. And so that's what's got us really not tearing me, I'll say me, you know, it's got what me is got thinking about, you know, you have to really put the Think about what we're putting in, we should eat, to live not live to eat. Another revelation that I had is we went up to our little favorite restaurant and we had some chips in a margarita. And after we got through, I'm like, Well, why did we even go up there? We could have ate, you know, we could have ate or drank at home, we went up there for the experience, I could have had the same experience with Terry sit down patio with a glass of water, and no chips. And so, again, I'm not great at this, but I'm trying to rethink this about it, what it does, it's not about what you're eating as much as the company you're with, and the spot that you're in, that we can enjoy that and still eat good food.   Dr. Lori  36:36 That's and that's what makes it so complicated. There's no easy answer, like I love when they make quotes, you know, because I mean, I do have a, quote, weight loss program that I offer. And, you know, you always hear Oh, diets don't work. And I love to argue that point. I'm like, Listen, if they didn't people, people lose weight when they're on a diet they do. But what you need to say is that they're not sustainable. And that's true, you know, we know that. So it's like, so don't say they don't work they do. I mean, otherwise, people wouldn't be using them because people lose weight on them all the time. But it's, um, we just, we're so hell bent on, you know, Oh, I got to lose the weight. Because, you know, for Vanity Fair, but and that's fine. That's fine. I think over the years, what we've done, though, is that, you know, my parents generation, they just, they just wanted to live long, you know, it's like, because, because back then their parents didn't live long. So it's like, so they, they were like, We just, we just want to live to a certain age. So instead of dying and 60, we want to be able to live to be 80. Okay, and so that when they got their wish, you know, people were living that long. You know, I mean, my Actually, my grandmother lived, she was almost 107. You know, sorry, I'm sorry, take that back. We wait, I think that back 97. But all our faculties like, she wasn't even on medication. And so So, but now it's like, okay, that's not just enough anymore. You know, I mean, I said, I think right before we got started, how old my kids are and like, so my kids are, you know, 2717 and seven. I'm 5151 and a half actually, you know, so you do the calculations. And I when my youngest one graduates high school, because I just had one the graduated high school in June. But when my youngest graduated high school, I don't want people to go up to her and say, Oh, is this your grandmother? You know, actually, what I want them to say is, Oh, is this your sister, you know, like, that's what I want. And so I so now it's okay, I it's not good enough, just for me to live long. I want to, I want to enjoy every moment of my life, and be active and participating and not be a burden on my children and or society I want to so that means that I have to do what it takes for me, you know, I it's we're we're always looking outward, oh, if I don't, if I don't look young, I'll go to the plastic surgeon. Or I'll get this procedure done or something. If I if I don't feel good, I'm going to go and get you know, gastric bypass if I'm too overweight, because I don't work. Nobody wants put in the work. You know, and you never had a problem put in the work getting this way. Like that's the funny part because it was enjoyable, you know? But you're like, Okay, you can't expect nothing to happen. Again, it's the same thing that I've said before. It's like people are shocked when the doctor says, Oh, you have to go on medication for this or that. You know, I remember years ago, my you know, my ex his family has a history of heart disease and diabetes, you know, and, and he's always been overweight, and I was overweight as well. But luckily for me, the overweight didn't go to any type of morbidity, but he was in his late 30s. And he comes home and he was all bad. He goes, You never believe what the doctor said to me. And I'm like, what he goes, I have to go on high blood pressure meds. My blood pressure is elevated. I'm like, You got to be kidding me. And he's like, he said, lose the weight. Because you're fat, lose weight and you want to go on the medic, the medication. He's like, could you believe he said That's me and I started laughing. I'm not good. I'm glad he said that to you. Because you because you are like you are and we're afraid of the F word. And God forbid, we say that f word we don't we don't want the doctors get in trouble for saying it. Oh, man, I'm sensitive. And this is what I say. nobody's saying you don't look beautiful, everybody looks beautiful the way they are, I don't care. I don't care how big how small they are. It's not about that. It's about your health, right. And if body fat equals disease, which it does, that increases your risk of certain diseases, and you lose the ones that are really common in this country. If excess body fat increases your risk, then get rid of the excess body fat, right? And then you won't be you don't have to worry about going on meds, you don't have to be sick or whatever, you know, his mother just passed away. She was only by she was 72. And she had she had diabetes for years. And she died in October. And because she had been in the hospital, the whole entire summer since the summer she was in the hospital, because of the advanced stage of her diabetes, and her kidneys started shutting down. And, and I actually, I was surprised that she lasted as long as she did, you know, because she was in and out of the hospital for last four years. So, to me that's not quality. That's not that's not okay. Like I want, you know, if my kids want to if my grandkids someday, you know, Sue and want to be climbing up on the, you know, the the playscape outside, I'm going to be climbing on there with them. You know, I don't I don't want to be saying oh my god, my back hurts. I can't do that. You know? So it's a choice. It's a choice. And it's and I'm not saying it's an easy choice. You know, it's there are those moments where you're like, Cookie looks really good. You know? And it's like, and then you say, Okay, well, if I haven't had the cookie, you know why I haven't eaten this poorly in a while. Can I have it? You know, bless those people who are avid, I mean, I gotta tell you like that are clean dieters 100%. Every single day. I'll admit it, that's not me. I you know, it's, I would say 96% of the time. I am. But there's always those moments, and, but I go in with an awareness knowing Okay, I know that if I eat this, or I drink this, there's probably gonna be consequences to pay, and I'm gonna just, I'm gonna have to live with that. And then I'm gonna have to take it easy. And not do that again for a while. barring a   Terry  42:28 death sentence from your physician. How you get going, how do you keep going? What's the sustainability secret? Help me, Laurie. Help me to call you baby. I'm gonna call you baby for baby. That sounds good.   Dr. Lori  42:44 So first off, you have to want to that's the number one like you can't nobody can ever talk you into doing anything unless you really want to, like if you if there's the want there. And and so you're right. It's usually we do get that done sentence. That's what gives us the push, or some people not even anymore. Some people just don't even care. They're like, I don't whatever. But it's you have to you have to have your wants. So you have to think of it emotionally, mentally, physically, physiologically, like, Okay, how am I feeling? I want my How do I look? You know, throw it all in there the login when people say, well, it's not about vanity, listen, it is for me, it was you know, like, I'm, I'm 51 I want to not just lose the weight because it's better for my health. I want to look damn good. Like, I want to, you know, I want to I want to be, I mean, it's not like I didn't feel sexy, being overweight, but I feel a lot sexier that I lost 40 pounds, I gotta tell you, you know, it's a heck of a lot more fun buying clothes. So you just have to say, okay, just let's go through the whole thing. The more emotional connection you put, the more meaning you put to it, the more successful you'll be. Okay, so then you say, all right, so emotionally, mentally, and physically in Visio, I'm connected, I want to do this. But your body will fight. You know, your subconscious brain will kick in. This is what you saw. And this was funny, because I did some training with Dr. Joe dispenza. And I highly rated he's fabulous. And, and, and he felt it so remarkably well and so easy. It is what he says. He says, You have two conversations with the subconscious and the conscious, you know, and the body is attached to the subconscious. That's the autopilot body does everything you know, that's why you just grab, you know, the food and you just put in your mouth before you thought about it. Right. So this, this is what the body does. The body says, Oh, you want to change? Alright, I'll, you know, I'll humor you for now. You know, that's fine. We'll change we'll get up in the morning at 5am we'll go workout and I don't really like it, but we'll do it. Because in the back of the body's going it'll give them a week. You know, that'd be Yeah, you know, and, and then we'll we'll we'll get our way. And that's exactly what happens. Because every day it gets a little harder and a little harder and a little harder. And then when we get into it. So if you say I'm going to get up at 5am and I'm gonna go work out and I'm going to meditate and I'm going to do all these things and then they learn goes off you go, I'm gonna hit the snooze for five minutes. Then somebody goes, yes, we're already winning. Like we're already winning the app. We got the snooze and tomorrow be longer snooze. And then then tomorrow, we'll just say, Well, I won't do it tomorrow. today. I'll take a break. I did so well, that and then and then the body goes against Yes. Because here's the deal. It's not that the body doesn't like you. The body's just following what you told it to do all those years ago. The body's saying, well, you said we didn't have to get up. You said we didn't have to exercise. You said you didn't mind looking like this. You said you'd like to eating this stuff? Why are you changing now? So when somebody pulls out the numbers I love and they pull the numbers and they go, Oh, it takes 90 days to break a habit. Oh, it takes there's if you Google is there's like, so many days, this is the real this is what it takes. It takes anywhere between a week and a year to break a habit. Wow, some are easier than others. It just depends. But the point is, is that when you get the resistance, and this is answering your question, Terry, the once you do get started, you need accountability. You need people to help you be accountable. You can't do it alone. It's just it food is addictive. But it's also necessary, we need to eat it, you know, it's like an alcoholic alcoholic has people to back them up, they have a sponsor, they have they don't have to have it in the house. But how do you tell that to somebody who you have to have food in the house. Like you can't just leave the food out and go, I'm not buying any of those anymore, you know, but so you need you need multiple accountability partners, you need somebody that's that's going to be able to answer the phone in the middle of the night. And or if you get up really early, or if I'm going through this. And you can't just rely on one sponsor like, quote, sponsor for you. So you have to, you have to go in and announce to everybody around you. This is what I want, I want to eat this way. Now I want to look this way, I want to weigh this, I want to have this amount of body fat. The reason you have to tell them all that is because they're also very used to you as you are, and it's uncomfortable for them for you to change. So if all of a sudden, like especially mother's wedding, you're not eating this, you know, it's like an insult like me, that's the mentality now what do you do about you eat more? And I don't want it I'm watching my Well, what are you talking about? You know, so you have to also announce it to them and say, I really, really need your support on that. So so and if you can't be there to support me, just don't don't dangle it in front of me. You know, don't enable me. So it's a lot of conversation, a lot of communication, a lot of writing things down. And it's everything to redirect redirect your mind so that you don't do it notes everywhere. Don't eat this. Don't eat this. Don't buy this, you know. And like that that mindlessness   Roy Barker  47:49 that Be mindful about it. Yeah, it's hard. You just got to slow down. Because I'm so that way, you know, you wake up or not wake up. But you know, you kind of come to like, Oh, I just ate this whole bagel stuff I wasn't supposed to eat. And you're so right on the habits that, you know, you have the best of intentions, but it just takes time. It takes sometimes a lot of time and a lot of effort and a lot of willpower.   Terry  48:15 Well, and when we talk to you the first time I have Joe dispenza this book that you have listed what it is even the habits, breaking the habit of being yourself. Yeah, I can't even think it's sitting right there on my nightstand. What a great, fabulous. It is. I mean, you know, it's good. I'm not finished with it, but I have it there and I've started it and and I am expecting great things. And I will share it with Roy. But I do share I mean, you know, he'll be reading something else. And I'll be Hey, you're saying this and he's like I'm trying to read. But he you know, we've heard his name thrown around a lot. So there's something to what is coming out of his mouth and from his pen.   Dr. Lori  49:01 He is and I recommend it to your your audience. And to both of you. It's the three the there's the three amigos they're called it's Dr. Joe dispenza. It's Dr. Bruce Lipton. And it's Gregg Braden. And Gregg Braden is more of the spiritual but it's still the mindset just like Joe's talks about Joe was more of those science meditation guy and then Dr. Bruce lips Lipton is the epi genetic sky. And he's the one talking about how you can literally rewrite your genes and you know you we all have these we all have the markers, the quote, I love when when doctors say stuff like that, oh, we have the marker you you're gonna you have a family history of diabetes and heart disease. So you have the genetics for it. So you're gonna get it. And it's like so what epigenetics and this is the total science you know, this epi genetic says they're there, but something turns them on. And once they're turned on, then Then the disease process, wolves will start. And if you can turn them on, then you should be able to turn them off. And the way we turn them on is through our lifestyle. It's our eating, it's our stress level, that's our lack of sleep. And after, that's why most kids are born, you know, they're not born or they don't develop diabetes. And when I say that, we're talking about type two diabetes, we're talking about adult onset. They know they're not born with that, if they're going to be born born with or get diabetes, when they're children. It's type one, and it's a different entity, but we're talking about they don't they are born with atherosclerosis, and they don't develop it at five, you know, this is years of living our life, you know, it's a lifestyle. So, so when you look at a newborn, and you look at or a three year olds, and if you look at that kid and say, Oh, well, you have the genetics for that. So, you know, Michael, put you on the meds now, or, you know, something stupid like that, but, but the reason we can prevent it, or why is it that people have a heart attack? And that's their wake up call. And then they massively change their, their, their diet, and they start exercising, they start running. And next, you know, they're running, they've slimmed down. They're off their meds. And they're running marathons. Like what How is that possible? Because that's the way the body works. We can reverse things with it unless we get so so bad. Right? But it's that's why then some people just give up on they'll say ads too late. It's never too late. Again, it's about you know, it's the expression. If, if it's important to you, you'll find a way If not, you'll find an excuse, right, and that and that's what it is.   Terry  51:41 So true. That is so true. Oh,   Roy Barker  51:44 I was gonna ask you. I know, we've talked about a lot of things. And we're getting short on time. But can you talk about your seven core pillars of alignment? Or? Yes? And no, what we'll have to do is get you to come back on we could talk about that.   Dr. Lori  51:59 Yeah, no, I'll talk really quick about them. So it's seven, it's, it's when you're looking at aligning with your like, being in living the healthy life living an abundant life. If you if you don't address all these things, then there will always be something missing, you'll always be off, you'll be misaligned in that way. So what it is, is it's your mental, being, your emotional being, your physical being, your physiological being mean, and how you function. You're about how your body functions, your spiritual being, and your social being, and then your financial being. And, you know, you could be in the greatest health and in the best shape, and you eat well and you meditate, but your finances stink, that's going to add stress. And that's going to prevent you from doing the things that you want to do. And that's going to take its toll and so, so when you when you work on every single one of those pieces, that's when that's, that's how you're going to live an abundant life. And, and we're not saying that you you have to have all these things, and you know, all these tangible items, it's just a matter of just what's important to you. So when you're you and you have to define each of those for yourself, but work towards all of them, you know, so and then they do come and steps. That's why that's why it's it's interesting, when people lose a lot of weight. You know, they'll get divorced sometimes because they've transformed their body, but they also transform their their themselves. And, and they don't know why they're like, I don't know why, like, I don't want to be with this person anymore, that my my significant other doesn't want to be with me anymore. Because I lost the weight. But don't worry, they'll get meaner because they get angry, they get so angry that they didn't do this sooner, or they're just different. Or they're it's also the same reason why people fail at it and gain the weight back because the weight loss the physical change, and the physiological change. Their mental and emotional states weren't prepared for it. Interesting like when somebody wins the lotto, you know, when they win the lottery, they The reason they a lot of them loses like it's really crazy statistic, it's like 85% who win the lottery are right back to where they were within a five to 10 year mark or something like that. Because they didn't change their mindset. They didn't there was an a mental emotional connection to the lack of money or the maybe not lack but the the middle class or whatever they were class they were in, that they couldn't fit into the all of a sudden I have all this money, and they couldn't make it happen. So that's, that's where that came up with and that really came up. It's not like I mean, there's all types you'll hear for there's four things or six things or that but this was really specific to what I noticed about my growth and and it does align with other what other people say but that's just my those are the seven and you can do all of those things. But if if you don't have the social element It's a moot point if you so any one of them, if they're not, if you don't feel like completely aligned or authentic, you know, that's the other piece of that you're aligning with your authentic self. So if you don't feel that that's you're resonating with each of those pillars for who you are in a positive way, then you'll need the work like you know, and it doesn't matter who you get the work from, it's just you got to do the work, you know?   Terry  55:28 Well, and you said you said also we you also have a victor fat wellness program, I wanted you to talk about a little bit about that too. On a note work   Dr. Lori  55:40 time time. Crunch. It's it's a six week program. And it's it's based off the the chirothin weight loss program, which is a chiropractic program. It's only   Roy Barker  55:55 Oh, no. Can you still hear me? Can you hear me?   Terry  56:14 Okay, sorry about that.   Roy Barker  56:16 went away at the chiropractic chirothin   Terry  56:19 carrier.   Dr. Lori  56:20 So the chirothin program is a it's a it's a six week weight loss program marketed specifically to chiropractors. And it's, it's a combination of supplements and eating have like a eating protocol, you know, intermittent fasting, cutting certain things out elimination protocol, so certain foods, you don't eat you. And minimal exercise. Like there's there's specific exercises that you do. But what I added to mine, that's why quality, like the fat program is that it I added to the coaching piece, because, you know, you can get people to go on this. But listen, I went on it the first time and I cheated myself. So it's like, the so I'm like, I can't get to be accountable here. You know, I'm supposed to be the doc, you know. So I did it, wipe package it one day, and I said, I'm gonna just put some group coaching sessions with it, and I'm gonna go on it myself with the group. And that's how I lost the 40 pounds. And I did it from like, mid June to the beginning of November, November, I lost 40 pounds. But, um, and it's, it's great, you know, and it's really, it's marketed as a weight loss program, but it's a it's really an anti inflammatory elimination protocol, you know, and then you just sort of eat that from that point going forward. And I mean, you feel fabulous after I mean, the weight loss is like a side effect that we say it's but but I have people getting off meds, lowering meds. You know, having been diagnosed with autoimmune diseases, where it's either went into remission, or their symptoms are a lot less. So. I mean, in the end, that's what it's really all about.   Roy Barker  58:01 Wow. All right. Well, we're gonna get you to promise to come back and see us there's so much more we could talk for hours, we know that, you know, you have a fun place to go to. And have to watch but better be careful what I eat and drink there. So I have to go to a party.   Terry  58:18 Yeah, that's kind of a downer after you've had your discussion with us. And yeah.   Roy Barker  58:23 So what is a habit or a tool, what's something that you do every day in your life that you feel adds a lot of value professional or personal.   Dr. Lori  58:33 I live I am a mindfulness practice person. I'm, that's, that's what I do. I don't if I if I don't do it in the morning, which I my intention is always to do something like a meditation breathing, you know, manifesting, I will do it throughout the day. But gratitude is probably the biggest piece for me. I really through all throughout my day, different times, I will talk, you know, think about what I'm grateful for, say it out loud, something comes up and I'm like, wow, I'm really grateful for this, you know, and it's it's such a game changer. And you know, even even when it's a bad situation, and what about you know, what, what can I learn from this what, so I'm going to be grateful for this piece. And I always feel worse when I don't do it. Like if I notice that I'm in a bad mood. I have to think back and go when was last time I said, you know, maybe it was like in the morning and it's like all day. Okay, that's it, then what am i grateful for right now? I'm really grateful. I'm like, I'm grateful for moments like this to be able to speak and share my knowledge, you know?   Roy Barker  59:37 Well, we were grateful that you took time out of your day to be here too. We are and I think that is awesome. You know, we no matter how bad things are, there's usually somebody that's got things a lot worse than we'll ever know. So just being thankful for being able to have some sunshine in our day or whatever, you know, other positive things are going on. Sometimes just to live through a day is granted. Do that dude. All right, Dr. Laurie will tell everybody you know, who do you like to work with how you can help them? And of course, how can they reach out and get a hold of you?   Dr. Lori  1:00:12 So you could reach out to me I have a website, Dr. Laurie Monaco calm. I'm also on Facebook and LinkedIn for the same under the same name Dr. Laurie Monaco, Instagram, I am the badass Buta one. And let's see Tick tock, the badass Buddha and I also have YouTube I view to channel Viva coffee cola chain, Dr. Laurie Monaco, I work with I really love working especially with people who are really new new coaching that have never really coached before that are have that idea that they're really not worth it, or they they're stuck or they have depression or anxiety. I do work with men and women, I guess I tend to work with women more so. But that's not that just just the way it is sometimes. And I do work with teens and younger, but I think vast majority of my people are like in their 20s and up. But it's it's for people that really, you know, I'm I'm a cheerleader. I'm I'm in your face. I'm you know, I but I'm also your biggest fan like I you know that and that's, I think, you know, I met I balanced between loving and and pushing without enabling. And so for anybody who feels like they just think maybe they can't work with a coach that's so hardcore, or, you know, is is too regimented. I'm regimented, but I have a whole way of like my regimen. So but it works. It works really well. So,   Terry  1:01:45 okay, the BB regimen.   Roy Barker  1:01:47 Yes, the DB DB. All right, we all reach out to Dr. Lori, see how she can help you.

See all the Healthcast at https://www.biobalancehealth.com/healthcast-blog/ Last week we talked about obesity as the biggest risk to both individual health and to the overall health of Americans.  This is not fat shaming…this is a fact!    Americans are inundated with advertising which literally makes them hungry for foods that make them fat, which then makes them hungry for more high calories food….we are being fooled into eating what is killing us! I think the epidemic of Obesity in the US is caused by the following:   Fast food, Junk Food Sugared and Diet soft drinks Excessive Alcohol intake (and high calorie mixers they are served in) Lack of physical movement Lack of exercise: TV, driving, video games, Mental vs Physical labor Sugar substitutes that cause obesity (Splenda (yellow) Saccharin (pink) Equal (blue) Stress   Fast food= High calories + High Carbohydrates= Weight gain The only time I have fast food is when I am traveling by car.  This summer, I took note of all the calories/carbs in the fast food we were stopping for which made me horrified at the possible total daily calories one meal can generate.  By driving I am not exercising so basically, I am fatter when I get somewhere than when I started….next year I'm packing my food!  The basal metabolic rate = the number of calories you burn in a day if you aren't working out and exercising is generally less than 2,000 calories, and the shorter you are the fewer calories you need. Your weight doesn't increase the number of calories you need unless your weight is from muscle.  Fat doesn't burn any calories, only muscle does!!  This means that if you eat 2,000 calories per day and sit at your job you will stay the same weight.  If you eat more you gain if you eat less you lose. But a calorie isn't a calorie…in other words all calories aren't equal.  Even though fat contains more calories per oz than protein or carbohydrates, carbohydrates impair your ability to burn calories by making you insulin resistant…carbohydrates are more damaging to your weight loss than any other food and fast food is full of them!   Here is what I found out about fast food. Big Mac = 540 calories Burger King Large Fries = 434 calories Chick Filet Chicken sandwich = 430 cal Chick Filet sandwich = 440 calories Chipolte Burrito-Carne = 570 calories Dairy Queen ½ lb. grilled burger with cheese = 800 calories Dairy Queen brownie batter Blizzard, medium = 880 calories KFC Fried Chicken one Chicken breast = 360 calories McDonald's French Fries large = 510 calories (all carb and fat) Panera/STL Bread Co asiago cheese bagel = 320 calories (all carb) Pizza Hut meat lover's 1- slice = 410 calories (who eats just one slice?) Taco Bell soft Taco = 180 cal each  Coffee Calories:  Coffee at Starbucks is really just drinking dessert! Coffee black any size = 0 calories Starbucks Café mocha Vente = 280 calories Starbucks Café mocha vente = 330 calories The Point: Cooking at home with olive oil and other polyunsaturated oils with low carb contents is more conducive to weight loss than eating fast food….No surprise! Soft Drinks Soda is just eating a bowl of corn syrup with carbonation---It is deadly because it readjusts your insulin, by increasing your insulin to cause insulin resistance.  Insulin resistance is the problem when it comes to weight loss as adults…and some children.  These drinks should be removed from the American diet…they provide no nutrition, and they cause obesity. Obesity can only be treated by and avoided by consciously eating a healthy diet without fast and junk food, without soda and simple sugars.  The other side of this is that Americans must sit less and exercise and walk more. Know how many calories you can eat and minimize carbohydrates.  If we eat it, big business will continue to sell junk and fast food.  We have been a bad example to the rest of the world by exporting all the fast-food franchises to other countries. We must take the lead in following healthy patterns that provide profit for companies that make healthy food and drink instead of the food and drink of obesity and the addiction to sugar!

Balanced For Life Program, Eat and Live Cleaner From the Inside Out Featuring Sherry Diamond It's so important to strive for balance in life. This is from eating in general, to what you eat, when you eat, how much you move, sleep, drink water, and much more. Combine this with living clean, eating clean, and using clean products we can certainly improve our health and our outlook on life. Living from the inside out certainly has its benefits. About Sherry At age 64, I found myself waking up two to three times a night, and in a “brain fog” in the morning. I had bumps under my skin, and not feeling at my full potential. When I went for my annual medical checkup, my doctor informed me I was “knocking on the diabetic door” and needed to change the way I was eating. Since I am terrified of needles, I knew I needed to pay attention. I couldn't imagine having to give myself injections of insulin every day. Around this same time, my brother started teaching me about bacteria, how it forms in our bodies, and that it eventually causes high blood pressure and diabetes, as well as the negative effects it has on people with autoimmune diseases. This resonated with me because I have had Hashimoto's Disease (a thyroid problem) for 27 years.  I immediately started to eat cleaner, and honestly, after about 10 days, I already was feeling so much better and sleeping better too! By the time I lost the first 40 lbs., I could feel “the shift” in my brain for the first time in my life. I could picture what I would look like when I reached my goal weight. For the first time in my life, my brain and my body were becoming friends. I started feeling good from the inside out. This is when I began researching cleaner products for my personal use and at home. In the Stay Balanced 4 Life program, I will share all of these products and the information I've learned about them with you. I am not paid for any endorsements of these products.   The best part of reaching my goal weight is that I feel healthier at age 67 than I did at 47. I have more energy, more confidence and I'm moving through life at my full potential now. Once my brain and my body became friends, there was no stopping me. I finally gave the 232 lb. me a permanent eviction notice and she is never allowed back in my house again! This program is individually designed for your unique needs to help you feel better from the inside out.  www.balance4life.com www.feedingfatty.com   Full Transcript Below Balanced For Life Program, Eat and Live Cleaner From the Inside Out Featuring Sherry Diamond Sun, 7/11 2:08PM • 47:52 SUMMARY KEYWORDS eat, people, day, food, ice cream, life, roy, sherry, sleep, bad, journey, thyroid, drink, doctor, diabetes, margarita, noticed, good, night, sit SPEAKERS Sherry, Terry, Roy Barker   Roy Barker  00:00 Hello, and welcome to another episode of Feeding Fatty. I'm your host growing and I'm Terry,of course we are the podcast journaling chronicling our journey to health and wellness that can consist of, you know, our diet, what we eat, not necessarily a diet and then also exercise in movement, which is imperative for us, we do not move enough. And then also, you know, our mindset and being able to sustain our changes, we really have to get our minds right and wrap it around. So you know, and we also talk about our journey a lot and some different things like diabetes, which I struggle with. And then we also have professionals in the field on And today, we are glad to have Sherry Diamond with us, Terry, I'm gonna let you introduce Sherry.   Terry  00:00 Sherry Diamond is an entrepreneur and a coach for her program balance for life. She teaches others how to live from the inside out and not the outside in how to eat cleaner and use cleaner products, no matter their age or ailments. She developed the program three years ago, after much research and lost 103 pounds. She is 67 years young and does not take a lot of medication. And Sherry, I'm gonna let you talk to us a little bit about your journey. Three, almost four years ago, how you started out and and why you ended up where you are today. And how you did that.   Sherry  00:00 Well, hi Roy and Terry, it's so fun to be with you. I was so looking forward to today, because we've talked a few times. And you know, you guys resonate with me. So it's so fun to be here with you today.   Roy Barker  01:43 Thank you for that. Thanks for your day. Yeah.   Sherry  01:46 So my journey has been, you know, as I've told you, I come from a Jewish family where food is everything. It's like our life. And how I was socialized as a child really is what got me to be a yo yo diameter and be overweight is it most of my life, but really, as an adult in my 40s and 50s is when I think I was really at my worst. Um, and it's funny, because when I look back now how I was socialized as a kid, you know, if we were all together with our family, and everybody was eating or having ice cream, and it was a party, perfect, eat whatever you want, but come home from school and put your hand in the cookie jar. And my mom or my grandma would say, Yeah, I don't think you should be eating that. You might be getting a little too fat. And they said those words to me when I was a kid. Oh, by the time I got older, you know, I didn't know if I was supposed to eat the food, hide the food or what I was supposed to do with the food. And a lot of times I suffered in silence, but not terrible. Because I have to say, being overweight never stop me from anything like I dated. I got married, you know, men like me. It wasn't like people looked at me like I was a horrible, obese person. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, it didn't affect me that way. But when I was 64, he went to the doctor. And she told me that I was knocking on the diabetic door. And up until that point, and still now the only medication I take is for my thyroid because I have I have hypothyroidism. And that's the only pill I take. And I'm grateful for it. So I thought you know what, if I'm knocking on the diabetic door, I'm terrified of needles, I am not going to take insulin. So I better start looking at what's going on with food. And honestly before that, maybe a couple years before that I had a bad rotator cuff. And it was I was in terrible pain. And they didn't know if I was going to have to have my shoulder operated on but I did it. And I started researching foods that were going to help heal my shoulder and it was all about antioxidants. Because antioxidants are just you know everything blueberries, strawberries, all the dark berries, they're great for us. You know, spin is everything that has antioxidants, it's one of the best things you can eat. So I started doing that. And I learned that certain foods I was eating especially with too much sugar are terrible if you have problems with your joints or anything like that, and everything that causes inflammation. So I went on this journey and my actually my brother's the one that started me on the journey and started talking to me about eating cleaner and plant based and different things. And I did and I lost 103 pounds. I'll never get fat again and I tell everybody that I killed that fat girl I buried her and I watched her die and she's ever allowed back here again.   Roy Barker  04:42 Yeah, what a good feeling and you know, talking about the family not in this isn't placing blame but, you know, we kind of I grew up in that same situation, but it was more of the emotional eating like, you know, if you came home and had a bad day, it's like, oh, no, well, let's have something to eat that'll fix you up or it's like You know the celebration like yay things were awesome for you Let's celebrate and I know I kind of have a an addiction to ice cream and I love ice cream could eat, you know, just a ton of it all I can eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner. And you know, we've kind of talked a lot about it and I think I figured it out is that you know, whenever I would be with my grandparents, or my dad whenever I would work with them in the summer, like either helping them on their job or maybe just mowing the yard for them. You know, both of my grandpa's would be like, Hey, you know we've worked hard enough today let's go down to one of them went to the Dairy Queen and one of them went to the drugstore. Let's go get an ice cream and then you know, I   Terry  05:41 think back back when drugstores used to have ice cream. Cover wagon days. Sorry. Yeah, no, I   Roy Barker  05:48 mean, you know, like with my dad when I would go to work with him in the summer I can remember vividly setting in the Dairy Queen with the jukebox playing a Van Morrison song, you know, eating an ice cream sundae taking an afternoon break from you know, being out working hard. So, you know, when you think back about that, you know, that's, I think it's partly the ice cream. That's good. But it's that relationship. It's the happy times. It's just, you know, so much wrapped up in the emotion of it. No,   Sherry  06:16 you know what, right? I knew there's a reason I liked you. I came from a family where my dad, my dad literally could sit down after dinner and eat a bowl or to have ice cream and lay down on the couch and take a nap. Right. And ice cream was like, I love ice cream. And up until probably I can't believe I'm going to admit this, but I will is that up until maybe 10 years ago, eight years ago, it was no problem to sit down and eat a pint of Haagen dazs peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. It was delightful. But guess what all but all we were all we're doing. We're just stuffing everything that we're not dealing with down in the form of food and happiness. And we're calling it something else. And that's really what it is.   Roy Barker  07:06 Yeah, yeah. And I can say that was one of my bad parenting skills was you know, because we would go out we get the kids one of those, that the pots like that, of course, I would come home and eat mine before they even get the spoon out of the drawer. You know, and they were like normal eating people. So they might take a few spoonfuls out and be like, Oh, I'm gonna save this for later, may put it in a freezer, well, then when they get sent to bed and I get hungry at night, you know, I'd go in there and scrounge around and eat one of theirs, you know, then they get up all hacked off the next morning and my daughter she finally caught on. And so she'd start buying flavors that do I didn't like and wouldn't go in there and eat. Yeah. So anyway, you know, I think, I think our you know, it's, I don't, like I said, I'm not placing blame, but I think it's just patterns that we have grown up with in our lives that, you know, some of us have probably taken to the extremes and don't do well with and so, you know, that's part of what I'm trying to do is, you know, the ice cream has to go. But you know, it's funny, even now To this day, you know, sometimes when I you know, I'll be out working in the backyard, and I'll come in like, Oh, you know what, why don't we go get an ice cream, you know, goes to the store. That's just my go to thing. So.   Sherry  08:24 Right. But what's funny about what you just said about let's have ice cream, and about blaming, I never blamed anybody. Because honestly, when you sit and you look back at why you do the things you do, it all comes from a place of love. Because our parents, our parents didn't know any better. That's what they did. So they taught us what they knew. But for some of us like me, it was you can eat it when we say you can but then there's other times when you can't, because you're getting a little too chubby. Yeah, yeah. You know, but I will say that the ice cream. You're right, right. It has to go.   Roy Barker  09:02 Yeah, yeah. Yeah, it's gone. It's hard, but Terry's good about helping me with that for sure.   Terry  09:09 Oh my gosh, I try not to have any snacky anything. You know, it's hard. You have to have snacks. You just have to have good smell. I know. She means Ron. Yeah, I just mean Yeah, the the bad stuff.   Sherry  09:24 I'm gonna send you a recipe that's delicious. For dark chocolate peanut butter cups. And they're made with almond butter and they taste the next best thing to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. And that can take place of the ice cream.   Terry  09:39 Okay, I want that. I want that because I am a peanut butter chocolate person when you're talking about the Haagen dazs peanut butter chocolate that was mine. That was my go to   Sherry  09:50 write in fact, when I make them which I don't very often but I make them when I feel like I need something sweet because I eat dark chocolate. Yeah, and um When I make it, it makes like 24 or 30 pieces, and I will eat two or three at a time. And I can't do that. So I give most of it away to my neighbor or a friend. And then I keep like five pieces. So I eat it once in a while, because it'll keep for a month.   Roy Barker  10:15 Right? Okay, good. So when you when you decided to make the change, you know, I understand the points that led up to it. So what are some things that you did? I guess, you know, in the first few days, or first few weeks, what are some of those initial steps that you took that you've been able to stick with?   Sherry  10:35 Well, I would say a lot of it was that mentally, I made a decision. Because I realized that you know, as much as we don't want to admit it, situations that I've been in, or people I've been around, or relationships, whatever it is, that aren't really good for me. There's people that are trying to enable us, you know, and being around the food police. And I noticed that it was around food police, if you like, are you supposed to be eating that? Well, meanwhile, they shouldn't be eating it either. And you don't I mean, if they're saying to me, sure, they're watching me what I'm doing. And I decided I wasn't going to tell anybody what I'm doing, I'm just going to do it. Because then you don't have to listen to anything anybody has to say because it doesn't matter. But what's interesting is, then when you start to change, some people don't like the change that you're making. So they're not supportive. And I made a decision that I'm the only one to be going forward in my life around people that are supportive of me, that are my cheerleaders that want me to do better in life. And if I make a mistake, they're going to say to me, you know what, here's where you missteps. But I'm still your friend, and I love you. And that's the kind of people I want around in my life going forward, not the NACA people who are creating all this negative energy and Oh, woe is me. And, you know, because they don't want, they don't want to change or no, they should they try to make me feel bad. Because I did know, this isn't about this isn't about anything else. I did the work. And that's it. And I and I never say to anybody else ever when I go anywhere, and anybody who knows me will attest to it. I never say to people, you know, you shouldn't be eating that. That's not good for you. I never say that. Because people have to live my mother used to always tell me you have to live and let live. Right. And whatever you do, you do Just don't tell me what I should be doing. Because obviously what I'm doing is working.   Roy Barker  12:36 That's right. Yeah, no, it's it's become a lot more important, not only in this journey, but in a lot of things, a lot of other things that we're going through, it's just, you know, you got to stay in your own lane, run your own race and right you can't and I think you know, in business we talk about you are the some parts financially and in your career, but were the people you surround yourself the five people you surround yourself with, you know, that their average income as well as is and but I think it's the same in this wellness journey as well. We have to really protect ourselves from all this negative influx that others can tend to get to you. And it's it's okay to be selfish and say, You know what, we just don't want to be around, we can still love you. We can still like you. But we don't have to be around that constant barrage of negative. And, you know, I understand that. Because sometimes I take it as a backhanded passive aggressive, like, Oh, well, you know, I know that you're eating a certain way. So we cook this or, you know, what can you eat on your certain D and I'm like, you know, there's really no certain deal. It's just, you know, for us, we're not on anybody's plan or anything, we're just trying to eat healthy, trying to do more, you know, plant base, not that we've cut out all meat or fish or whatever, we still have it if we want it in a good combination. But instead of making the meat the focal point of the meal, you know, more the plants the focal point of the meal and then a little bit of protein But anyway, it's not. I   Sherry  14:17 guess, it's not about the meat in it. I eat grass fed beef. I eat fish. I just don't eat chicken because it's a preference. I don't eat turkey. I eat omega three eggs. So you can still you see that's the misconception. plant based means you can't have anything that's meat or fish. No, you can. But you see the people that are saying that to you, boy, they're going I know I shouldn't be eating this. But let's make it about you. Right. Right. Good for you that you don't respond.   Roy Barker  14:49 Yeah, I mean, I just have to say look, this, it's we're just on a path of our own environment. To be honest, if I want a piece of chocolate cake, I'm going to sit down and eat one Should I eat one? And do I choose not to try very hard? Yes, the past that stuff up. But you know, I think the point that we tell ourselves are try to tell ourselves, you can't do something. You know, some of us are strong willed enough to say, I will show you that I can eat not only one piece of that cake I can play.   Terry  15:20 Oh my gosh, you tell me I can't do something I'm doing.   Sherry  15:24 Yeah, I understand that. I'm a rebel child, when you know every time you tell me. No, no, it's been my favorite words. since I was three years old. All you have to do is tell me No. And inside. I'm going really?   Terry  15:36 Show You heard me too. I so do that. Oh, my gosh.   Roy Barker  15:42 Oh, go ahead. No, I was gonna go ahead.   Terry  15:45 Oh, no, I just wanted to talk. Okay, so you said that you are you? You have hashimotos? Is that correct? Correct.   Sherry  15:53 Sorry, I'm hyperthyroidism. My thyroid doesn't move. Really?   Terry  15:58 Yeah, that's this the same as me, you know, I I have been taking, let's see, when was I diagnosed probably 2020 to 25 years ago with that. And I, I do like you I did, I'd lost about three or four years ago, I lost about 8590 pounds. Wow, I just quit taking every medication I was on. And the separate was one of them. But I did end up going back on it because because my blood work showed that I need to and I fluctuated you know, five to 10 pounds here and there more. But I've tried to balance like Roy's type two diabetes with my hyperthyroid his and his hypertension, you know, trying to incorporate everything all in one meal for you know, to address those certain situations. It can you do that? Do you have to address every thing? No, currently can it all? It all can kind of be the same thing? Do you have any words of wisdom for that? Because?   Sherry  17:19 And the answer is yes. Yes. And yes. There. It's one program for everything. Okay. Okay. So for me, I can't get off my thyroid medicine. The only thing that's happened to me which is good, is I you know, that's my goal is to get off of it. But I don't think I really ever will because I should have taken it when I was a kid. But our our doctor told my mom when I was a preteen and going through puberty, that No, it's just baby fat, and she'll grow out of it. We don't need to test your thyroid and my mom listened to him. And I didn't get diagnosed until I was almost I was 4041. My hair was falling out and I didn't have any energy. And I was sleeping at five o'clock in the afternoon. So I went to the doctor and found out that my thyroid completely shut down. And I started taking medicine. So I've been taking it for 27 years. But I am going to tell you that hypothyroidism, any kind of thyroid, autoimmune, any autoimmune disease, it doesn't matter what it is high blood pressure, diabetes, anything that you take any medication for, other than maybe an occasional aspirin is all about the food. And this is like you know what, we've talked about a million times about food being medicine. I used to go Oh, yeah, I'm so sick of hearing food is medicine. And guess what? I was such now. Now I'm almost like a hypocrite because no, really because food is medicine. Like what was wrong with me? I wasn't I didn't need I wasn't ready to listen. But you too, and everybody in the world that wants to eat better. All you have to do. There are certain foods that I teach you in my course you just have to let go of and everybody thinks this is a horrible thing. Like people say to me, does that mean I can eat cottage cheese every day with canned pears for lunch? That's right, you can't. So if that's so terrible to give up? Because you're going to swap it with food that's going to not only keep you full longer, it's going to take away your cravings. Yes, just give me one week to show you. And I promise you everybody feels better. My primary care physician   Terry  19:34 is on my program. That's amazing. When I read that, oh my gosh. How did that transpire? Me You went in   Sherry  19:41 and I inspired her because because I'm the one she's the one that told me I was knocking on the diabetic door.   Terry  19:48 And then,   Sherry  19:49 you know, and every year I come back and she's like, Oh my god, and then when I came back a few years ago, she's like Sherry, you are like an inspiration. She only needs Lose maybe eight pounds. But she told me she's got a lot of belly fat. It's because she's stressed out and all kinds of other things. And then she's not eating good. So she's she said, I need to be on your program because I know you know what you're talking about. And I need to listen to you. I was like,   Terry  20:16 I was floored. That is a great, Oh, my gosh, you can't get a better endorsement than that.   Sherry  20:23 Yeah, and she doesn't have she's not on any social media. So I can't get her to do a testimonial. But right now she's going through some personal things. So you know, the only thing that I have is I have her permission, but I don't really want to do it is to show her email that says, I need to be on your program. I'm bloated. And you know, and she gave me permission to talk about it. But I don't really like to put people's business out there. You know what I mean?   Terry  20:51 Yeah. Right. Yeah.   Roy Barker  20:55 Also, what are some other long term things or, you know, as we start through this journey, you know, I know that we we start down one path and like us, you know, we've made not major shifts, but we just, you know, we try to shift a little bit to make things work out for us. So, what are some other things that you've done for yourself?   Sherry  21:19 So one of the things that I think everybody needs to do, you know, one of the reasons I put together my plan is people would say to me, Wow, you look so good. You probably, you know, feel like on top of the world, and honestly, the best part of losing 103 pounds is no lie. When I look in the mirror, I go, yeah, you look good. But I'm not I'm not the type of person that goes, Oh, yeah, you're like all that and a bag of chips? I really No, really, I'm not like that. The thing that's so rewarding for me is that I have never felt healthier. Because one of the things that I that happen is people were saying to me, you know, I'm so busy. I'm so busy, I can't do this, I can't do that. And I thought, Wait a minute, this is why everybody's running around with their chicken with their heads like a chicken. Okay, what's the same chicken with their heads? Thank you. Oh, my gosh. And I said, It's not easy if it was easy with people do it. So I made it so easy that if a six year old in your house can read my food list, anybody can do it, I made it so easy. That was a and b, I realized that people have to make time, you can't get up and work 14 hours and take care of kids and do this and do that you have to take an hour a day, you have to go for a walk, you have to do some kind of exercise. Because once you start eating better, doing better, thinking better and moving a little better, your brain becomes clear. And you think better, right? And the next thing you know, everything in life is skipping along and all of a sudden, you go Wow, I've never been this happy with this much energy on top of the world I could do, there isn't anything I can't do. And that's how I feel. So you have to do   Terry  23:10 a little bit of everything. And sleep is a huge component as well, I'm you   Roy Barker  23:17 should have we should have just muted or when I had the chance,   Terry  23:21 oh my god, he can stay up till you know, one two o'clock in the morning. Because he has to get so many things done on his list. But then he'll just be so exhausted, he'll come to bed, you know, and of course, he's a dude. So he falls asleep at the drop of a hat. You know, as soon as his head hits the pillow, he's out. And then, you know, then then a few hours later, he's up again, trying, you know, and I know, well, I have issues with it too. But Sleep Sleep is just such an important component of being able to complete, complete the whole picture, you know?   Sherry  24:01 Well, I am gonna say you're absolutely correct, Terry, but I understand why.   Terry  24:07 Sorry. Well, I   Sherry  24:08 understand how Roy is because I used to be like that. I was like that at a time in my life. Where it was like one more thing and one more thing. And one more thing. And before I knew it when I was in my late 40s. I was suffering from sleep deprivation. Because I was going going going I was telling people Oh yeah, I can get away with four hours of sleep. No. And then when you cut out all the noise around you, and you try to go to sleep and you start eating cleaner, you get tired. You go to sleep, I sleep seven hours a night, sometimes eight, and I never I hardly ever wake up I sleep like a child.   Roy Barker  24:50 Yeah, and it's to me sleep. And I know this and you know Terry's jokingly given me a hard time because I know this sleep is a bad term. For me, because when I wake up in the morning a little bit tired, then I want to eat more all day or, you know, at 10 o'clock at night when I've got a few more things I want to do, like if I just have that snack, so it to me, it sets off really bad eating habits. And I trade it. I've said this before, I think on an earlier episode, but I traded in my bigger, well known watch fitness watch. And I just didn't like it because I didn't use the bells and whistles on it went back to the Fitbit. And they have got a really good sleep score component. And I actually hit an 83 last Wednesday night, I was so excited because usually not that good. But anyway, I've really tried to start monitoring all of this, because we there's an old saying in business, you know, we can't change what we don't monitor. And I think that's good for us in health, the sleep, the steps, the blood sugar, you know, all of these different things that we may know about that we need to monitor because you know, when I have some really bad sleep scores, my next days are not that good, because I'm tired. The brain fog eating worse than I don't want to exercise because I'm tired. And I've eaten but it's just   Sherry  26:14 And can I just say one other thing for you, Roy, because you do have diabetes, that not sleeping produces more cortisol, the cortisol in your produces belly fat. And when you have diabetes, it's not good. So you're producing more cortisol by not sleeping good. And that's why the brain fog and everything else I know about the brain fog, when I remember, when I was in my like, late 40s, early 50s. I was working for a big telecommunications company. And I was working 1012 hours a day at home, working, working, working. And then I would go out at night with my friends and eat pasta. And I get up in the morning. And I felt like I was in a coma from food. But it's a food coma. Right. And so you really need you should be careful, because that is a that is a key that's going to be key with you along with food.   Roy Barker  27:14 Yeah, and I noticed the last month has been terrible. We've just been assaulted by ones and zeros of the world, the digital stress that we've been through has been crazy. But you know, I had very little sleep. And I noticed that my blood sugar was extremely high. And extremely pro long time I was having trouble controlling it. But it's funny, because that night, you know, last week when I finally there was a couple nights in a row that I was pretty close to being in the 80s my blood sugar was way down, it was much more easier to manage. So definitely saw that for sure. And in the food coma, you know, like ours around here is going to the Mexican food restaurant with the chips. And the Margarita is they have a lot of these flavored ones, they have this syrup. That's just very, very sweet. And so what I would notice is the next morning when I would wake up, you know, sometimes it'd be till like 10 o'clock, my head would be so clogged up. I think I have a food allergy too, because I could actually, you know, it's just like a some kind of allergy that my head would be so stopped up till 10 or 11 in the morning before I can finally get out from under that.   Sherry  28:31 Well listen, nobody loves chips and salsa and some beers better than the other Not anymore. But you could still go out and drink and have fun. You just can't drink margaritas. Right? What you drink tequila?   Roy Barker  28:49 Well, that's what we talked about, you know, it's been a month or so ago. We maybe as a table it was it was May 5, we went up to the local restaurant and we were eating had a margarita too and came home the next day felt bad. And I just told Terry, I'm like, okay, here's the thing. We went up there for socialization for me and you to, for me and her to sit and talk. We didn't need the chips or the Margarita, you know, why can't this is the thing for me. I'm not saying everybody but for me, why can I realize that? It's fun to go up there and sit on the patio and enjoy. I could do that with a glass of water glass of tea and eating a piece of grilled chicken or a taco salad, you know, make healthier choices, be in the same atmosphere and have just as much fun. It just doesn't sound that much fun.   Sherry  29:38 But it is but you're absolutely right. Because I go out and I go out to eat and I go out with my friends. And you know one of the things that we'll say about alcohol is that depending on how long you've been drinking, you get to be a certain age and I noticed this when I was starting to eat cleaner, that drinking a beer was horrible and doing different things. And so I stopped doing it. And the only thing, the only alcohol that I like to drink, I like to drink champagne, and I like to drink tequila, and champagne, you can only have one glass. So I cut that out. Because if I can't have at least two, sometimes three, then it's not a celebration. Right? And so now I just drink, I could sit by tequila for a couple hours, and I'm good. But when I feel like going out and drinking, you know, which isn't very often, I'll have more than one. But that's it, because then I know how I need to eat during the day. So I don't have to worry about the scale. And and I never do because you don't have to count calories on my program, you just have to eat clean in you know, certain times of the day. That's all it's so easy. I mean, it's so easy.   Roy Barker  30:53 Yeah, and people don't think about the caloric content. I'm not a big drinker. Anyway, we may go out once in a while and have one but, you know, I referenced this as a friend that she had had the lap band put on and we used to my high school class used to meet every Thursday night, you know, we just have a little get together. And she had had the lap band in, she got to where she started gaining weight. But what I noticed was that these little get together, she you know, she might have three or four of these margaritas. And so I asked the guy one time, not in front of her one trying to embarrass her, but I asked the guy, what's the caloric content of those things? never really thought about it? About 12 to 1500. So, you know, or somebody that was assuming, you know, 4500 calories, just in drinks alone in one evening. And so, you know, we don't think about our I don't never really thought about the impact of things like that.   Sherry  31:52 Yeah, it does have an impact. And as you get older, you can't I mean, for me, I rarely drink. Um, and I don't feel like it because it feels different now that my body feels so healthy. It actually gets in the way.   Terry  32:09 Oh, yeah. That That makes a lot of sense. Well, and, and really, it's not too late, ever to start.   Sherry  32:19 This thing, nobody knows that better than me. You know, I started in my 60s. And everything fantastic in my life, including my program, and my business partner, Karen and working with her and everything we're doing together, this is going to be when everybody's retiring and hanging out, I'm doing exactly the opposite. I'm going to be working and having the best next five to seven years in my life. And then I'm good. And you found something that you love to do. And some people it takes a lifetime to do or they never find that balance, you know, to do something that they love. And to make a living at it. No. Well, I always knew I'd wind up here, I just didn't know when it really because my whole life when when I this is why I teach people about living your life from the inside out. When I look around me now and this isn't a bad thing. And I'm not saying anything bad about anyone. So I want to make it very clear. But for me personally, when everybody was chasing the marrying the richest guy and having the most money and having the cars that everybody says oh, look what you can afford. That stuff is all nice look, I like nice things like everybody else, but I wasn't chasing it. I was chasing happiness and being myself and being who I am. And you know, I moved away from home when I was young, and all that stuff. I just wanted to be on the journey of me. And here I am at 67 and I'm the best I'm standing in the best legs I have ever been in and doing exactly what I love and want to do for the rest of my life. And I I couldn't be happier.   Roy Barker  34:06 Now that's awesome. It's an awesome thing to remember sometimes when we ask ourselves but why if the Why is just the money or the fame or the fortune probably need to rethink that when you because you know when you get to a certain age like like I am you start realizing it's the relationships it's the time you know, like yesterday. I hope that told the story once I hope it's not repeating myself if I am you can stop me but you know we had a taping that canceled yesterday afternoon so we loaded up the dogs and just went for a walk and it was the best thing you know, we haven't done that in for ever. But you know, try it. I guess this last week you know making a resurgence and thinking about us more our health and doing those but instead of us saying hey, let's go eat somewhere was like, let's go for a walk somewhere. And it was a much better decision for us.   Sherry  34:58 Well, yeah, and you change the person of your brain. I'm going to tell you every single day, every single day I fit it in, whether it's morning, afternoon, the evening, it doesn't matter. I take my headphones and plug them into my phone, and I go for an hour to a two hour walk every day and listen to music and think and read, it just resets your brain and you think about all kinds of things. instead of staying up half the night, go for a walk and listen to music or just sit down and meditate or go sit outside in the backyard and lay in the grass, you know, anything, just something that's completely different. And you'll see how your perspective and everything changes. Right? Exactly.   Terry  35:41 Yeah, that's that's really important. And meditation, you know, we've been getting into meditation a lot more. Well, this year for sure. But that helps so much. And I gotta tell you, I I love to listen to loud music with my headphones. But I love to scream, sing and I try not to do it to Roy but every once in a while I'll blurt something out. off key for sure. But I just love to scream sing and my you know, if I'm in my car, I'm like, I'm cranking it up. And that release. Oh, there's nothing like it. It's awesome.   Sherry  36:18 I love it. I do that to me. That's all I do. I just blast the music and let's go right.   Terry  36:24 That'd be fun. And somebody walk in, you know, scream sing. I'm gonna have to try that one. I'll do it with Roy. That'll be fun. We'll get some good looks.   Sherry  36:33 Well, two guys, you don't live closer. I would go walk with you every day. Hey,   Terry  36:37 I come out that way. I'm calling you. Alright, let's go. Okay.   Roy Barker  36:41 So before we start wrapping up, the one thing y'all are talking about I was interested in is the thyroid issue. Are there certain things that are good bad that you have to watch for that? Or is that just something that medication is really all you can do for it.   Sherry  36:59 Um, now, for me, when I was when I thought I was doing when I was trying to lose weight, you know, and maybe yo yo dieting, I noticed that I was eating certain foods. And even though I was losing weight, my belly was so fat. And I still had that belly fat, which is, you know, like we talked about before, that creates illnesses. That's where the illnesses start, you know, in your, in your gut. And so for me, the medicine is very important. But the foods that for sure, you have to cut out you have to cut out sugar, and you have to cut out wheat. I don't care if the doctor tells you because you're diabetic, you should eat oatmeal or a piece of wheat toast for breakfast. I'm going to tell you don't do it. Okay. I mean, those kinds of things, you know, anything White is horrible when you have diabetes, it's horrible. It's horrible for all of us. Because there's a saying, if it's white, it's not right.   Terry  37:56 Yeah, I've heard that. Right. I mean, all the starches, all the everything.   Sherry  38:03 And it's not about keto. And it's not about calories. And it's not, it's about only one thing, and I can't give away all the tea. But I am going to tell you that it's the one thing that's on my food list that you can't it's left out of every single food. And that's the key to having a healthy inside so that you can live from the inside out. Right. Okay.   Terry  38:27 Okay. Yeah. And well, I was gonna say, and I had heard about the wheat as well. And then the sugar and the sugar. Yeah, the white everything white. Yeah, we had had,   Roy Barker  38:39 I don't want to know that. No, I just anyone interrupt but the we had an eye doctor on. And he was saying, and I don't know that you'd have to go listen to the episode because there's a lot of probably doctor terms in there. But something about he cut out the wheat and everything in the dairy in the morning. And he started having him a smoothie that you know, was based on kale or spinach and some other things, you know, maybe some berries in the right quantity. But there's a there's another score that you get for your eyes. And, you know, he said that this improved their score by not having that wheat in the morning for breakfast, that it was really detrimental. And him and his wife took whatever they took this test together and scored like what 10 or 11 Yeah, and I think he said most people were down like six or seven or eight. But anyway, you know, there's a lot of other besides just the weight and how we feel there's a lot of other implications to other functions of our body that go along with this food as well.   Sherry  39:49 Exactly. And you know what i what the doctor said. I'm sure all of it is true, because the things that you swap out the foods that you swap out for, you know, Like a piece of toast, or the oatmeal or the cereal with milk, you'd be surprised. Just within, you know, a short time you can tell the difference. As time goes on, it's very apparent when you're eating cleaner foods.   Roy Barker  40:16 Yeah, and then the, a couple more things, we don't have to elaborate on it. But we've also learned that, you know, so much of our health starts in our gut, even our brain health, and that, you know, we've got to be sure and take care of that with what we're putting in. And, you know, that gets us back to the original thing that we, you know, you brought up was that food is medicine. And it really is, if we eat the right things in the right quantities, we can make ourselves so much more healthier.   Sherry  40:46 Absolutely. I mean, absolutely. Because, you know, it's like what you said earlier, Roy, about the way you eat when you don't sleep good. And then you have this food, food fog, like brain fog, because you grab the wrong snack or you did something because you get a rush for a few minutes, and then it goes away. But when you're eating clean all the time, you stay fuller longer, and you don't get that kind of rush like you do from sugar, the rush you get is that you can actually feel the food. Like you can feel it in yourself. It feels so good. And you start craving good food, right? Instead of the bad food. And that's the best part was like now going and eating ice cream. It I look at it and I go I can't believe I ever did this. Like why would What? What I want to eat this. It's not even, it doesn't even appeal to me anymore.   Roy Barker  41:45 I'm getting there. Not quite. I'm almost there. We don't go near near as much. So I can be glad when I would be hard standing in front of it. But I'll be glad that day when I can have the strength to stand in front of and say I'm not having that.   Sherry  41:59 Well, if it doesn't come through the door and you don't put it in the freezer, you can eat it.   Roy Barker  42:05 Well, yeah.   Terry  42:06 I'm this doctor. Yeah. I mean, not sta lk. Er, although no. But I am the pantry Stalker and the fridge stalker. So yeah.   Sherry  42:17 Well, you're, you're, you're doing a good job. But I think that you need to just let it sit in the freezer in the grocery store for somebody else.   Terry  42:29 My advice away that   Roy Barker  42:33 All right. Well, Sherry, thanks so much for taking time out of your day to be with us. Before we get away a couple questions. First off, what is something that you do in your daily life professional or personal, just a habit or a tool that you may use something that adds a lot of value?   Sherry  42:51 Well, one of the things I do every day when I wake up is, you know, I don't meditate in the traditional way of meditating. But I get up and I sit without my phone on or anything for 10 minutes. And I just think about today is going to be a good day. And I'm grateful for everything, you know, and I do that. But then the other thing that I do is, I you know, and I've really been doing it my whole life is I get up and I'm ready for another day. And let's go and it's not going to be perfect. But let's have a good day. And let's just keep moving forward and being positive. Because if we're positive and we help other people get to where they want to go, then life is is terrific. You know, I think your attitude is really everything. Right? And move your body every day.   Roy Barker  43:34 Yes, walk. Yeah, that's important. And that's something you know, especially through the pandemic, just being feeling like not feeling like I am blessed that I enjoy what I do. But that can be a curse, because I can sit here for extremely long periods of time, you know, not get up and move. But another great thing about this Fitbit is it's got a 250 step an hour reminder. So, you know, every hour, I get up, make sure I get you know, just walking around the house, just make sure I get my 250 in, right. It's it's nice because it compounds and at the end of the day, you know, I've got 2500 steps. So if we go walk in, or go to the gym, or whatever we do, you know, I've already got a pretty good, you know, start on trying to get to my numbers every day. So yeah,   Terry  44:26 anyway, and a small step. That's what we've been finding out. I mean, every day more and more. It's it's beat into us that the small steps, it's all about the small steps.   Sherry  44:37 Yeah, just put one foot in front of the other every day and be happy. And whatever it is that you really, really want. You really have to ask yourself, what do you really want because if you really want it bad enough, then you're going to do it. But how bad do you want to see and that's the thing I had to ask myself how bad did I want it? I want it bad enough that I needed to change and that's that The key word is change.   Roy Barker  45:02 Alright, Sherry. Well, thanks again, tell everybody who do you like to work with? How can you help them? And of course, how can they reach out and get a hold of you.   45:11 So I want to work with anybody and everybody, anybody who is struggling in any area of their life, especially if it relates to food, you can go to our website, it's www.balanced organically.com.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Saturday, October 9, and Sunday, October 10. This weekend could be the last one in a while with highs in the 80s, as temperatures are looking to be dropping significantly in the week to come.  According to the National Weather Service, clouds will gradually increase as the day goes on Saturday, with a high near 80 degrees. Despite the cloud cover, there will be no rain projected for the Iowa vs. Penn State game. There will be some rain predicted for Sunday, with a 20 percent chance of showers, increasing to 40 percent overnight into Monday. When not raining, it should be mostly cloudy on Sunday with a high near 82 degrees. A judge Friday extended his order preventing Iowa officials from enforcing a law that bans local school districts from implementing mask requirements until a federal lawsuit challenging the law can be heard. U.S. District Judge Robert Pratt previously had issued a temporary restraining order preventing Gov. Kim Reynolds and Department of Education Director Ann Lebo from enforcing the law that Reynolds signed in May. The order entered Friday issues a preliminary injunction that continues to prohibit the state from enforcing the law until the court case can be decided. Gov. Kim Reynolds on Friday pledged again to fight against the ruling. At least two dozen Iowa school districts have implemented mask requirements since Pratt's initial order Sept. 13. Eastern Iowa's two largest school districts — Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, representing more than 30,000 students — last month reinstated a mask mandate for students, staff and visitors. With football season in full swing, Iowa sports betting nearly doubled in September, with wagers exceeding $210 million, giving the state a half million-dollar payout. The https://www.thegazette.com/government-politics/iowa-september-sports-betting-soars-to-210-million-in-september/www.irgc.iowa.gov (Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission) reported Friday that the sports betting handle increased 94 percent from $108.4 million in August. The surge was fueled, in part, by the betting on the annual Cy-Hawk football game as well as a full slate of college and National Football League games. The September numbers broke Iowa's single-month record of $161.4 million set during college basketball's March Madness, according to the commission's monthly report. A bail bondsman and the man he was trying to take into custody were injured Friday evening in Cedar Rapids as the bondsman shot the man who struck a bondsman with his car. Police were called at 4:48 p.m. Friday to the Dairy Queen at Wilson Avenue and Bowling Street SW for the report that someone had been shot. There they learned that two bail bondsmen had attempted to take Richard Dean Hamilton, Jr., 40, into custody, as he was wanted on failure to appear warrants related to drug charges, police said. During this attempt, one of the bail bondsmen shot Hamilton, although police did not say why this happened or who did the shooting. Also unclear as of this recording was what happened when Hamilton attempted to escape, as one of the bondsman was struck by a vehicle as he drove away. Hamilton was later located by officers assigned to the PCAT team at a residence in the 2200 block of D St. SW. Both Hamilton and the bondsman were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Originally Aired: October 20, 2020 Do you consider "Dairy Queen" both a soft serve chain, and a perfect descriptor of your relationship to cheese? If so, I'm about to give you some tough love in honor of #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth. @DrKristiFunk, one of the world's leading experts in Breast cancer research and prevention, says that dairy is one of the worst cancer fuels we can be putting in our body. Yep, and the CONNECTION between our dairy-obsessed culture and the motives of our very government will make your jaw drop. But it's not ALL bad news. Dr. Funk has some amazing milk alternatives, like soy, almond, and cashew, and says that ONE of those alternatives literally causes cancer cells to commit suicide! Which milk option? You'll have to tune into see.Tag your cheese obsessed friend below, because they HAVE to hear the truth! And make sure you subscribe on YouTube for the full show! (Link in Bio!)

Kyle and Ethan attempt the One Chip Challenge and then sing to Em and her husband in Spanish, using a Worship Song Generator and Google Translate on a subscriber dare since they'll do just about anything for money. The song is entitled Bombardeo de Amor Ardiente. They talk about the weird news of the week like what the Department of Homeland Security sees as a terror threat now, a bank robber who needs to pay for handwriting lessons, and a man who yeets himself over to Dairy Queen in a helicopter. Also they find out you shouldn't bite snakes or play with handgun laser sights. The Mattel company failed to impress with its Tokyo Olympics Barbie lineup and apparently chugging a 2-liter of soda can land you with a world record. Kyle and Ethan then talk to documentary filmmaker Phelim McAleer about his new project, My Son Hunter. As usual, there is glorious hate mail and even more fun in the subscriber-exclusive lounge.
