Do you have trouble keeping your resolutions? Do you have difficulty setting goals and keeping them for yourself? Gretchen Rubin came up with the four tendencies, which is a personality type that explains why some people are better at meeting goals than others. She created a quiz that is centered around one important question, which is how do you react to expectations. The response to the squares can tell you many things about yourself. I can help you to understand your own behavior and the behavior of others.

#107 AJ Jacobs | How Games, Puzzles, and Other Mind-Benders Improve Our Brains and Ourselves

SuperPsyched with Dr. Adam Dorsay

Puzzles have a long history and are loved by millions of people worldwide. The New York Times crossword alone attracts 20 million people daily. And puzzles come in multiple forms: jigsaws, mazes, manipulable objects like Rubik's Cubes, and even puzzles that require teams like escape rooms and scavenger hunts. Why do we love puzzles? Can they make us smarter? If so, how? Can they improve our mental or physical well-being? And might there even be a case for them making us better people? These and so many other questions will be answered by my most delightful guest, journalist, lecturer, and, my friend, New York Times best-selling author, AJ Jacobs (https://ajjacobs.com/)! AJ captured my attention nearly 20 years ago when I read his first major book, The Know-it-All, in which he put himself through one of his many self-imposed challenges. That time he read the entire 33,000-page Encyclopedia Britannica in one year and wrote about his insights. Subsequently, as a human guinea pig, he has put himself through many experiments including one in which he lived according to the rules of the bible outlined in The Year of Living Biblically. As a result of these experiments, he has become one of the most curious, open-minded, and creative thinkers I have ever met. What's more, he has the gift being able to write intellectually stimulating and simultaneously hilarious material! His latest book just dropped and is called The Puzzler: One Man's Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, from Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life. I absolutely loved it! In it, AJ went deep into more than a dozen different types of puzzles learning their history, and writing about the challenges and insights he encountered. AJ has been consistently lauded by literary critics, thought leaders, comedians, and people from all walks of life. Gretchen Rubin, the author of The Happiness Project, described her experience reading the book in words that resonated with me, saying “Even though I've never attempted the New York Times crossword puzzle or solved the Rubik's Cube, I couldn't put down The Puzzler.” This is AJ's second visit to the SuperPsyched podcast, and I am over-the-moon delighted to host him and for you, my listener, to be the beneficiary of this extraordinary man's heart and brain. So, listen in as AJ and I have a lively conversation about becoming smarter and, possibly, better people through puzzling. Get The Puzzler here: https://tinyurl.com/mt23vzar

The pandemic placed a spotlight on employee wellbeing.  Many employees have been under increased stress and duress over the last two years.  In survey after survey, employers are sharing that they are altering their benefits programs to include services that move beyond traditional physical and mental health and into total wellbeing.    As with any market shift, there are players including new market entrants ready to fill in the gaps.  One such player is SoulBeing which offers complementary and alternative medicine services through a network of providers.  Their belief is that the divide between tradition and complementary medicine is closing and that many people, including providers and consumers alike, are focused on integrative medicine.   With us today to dive deeper into integrative medicine is Colleen Kavanagh, CEO of SoulBeing.  Colleen will share SoulBeing's vision and how it is creating momentum around the need for integrated medicine.  Prior to joining SoulBeing, Colleen spent 9 years working in GE's healthcare division.   Show notes:  Favorite Books: The Blue Zones By Dan Buettner  The Blue Zones Kitchen by Dan Buettner, Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin, Atomic Habits by James Clear.    Favorite Podcasts:  B-Time with Beth Bierbower, The Meditative Story Podcast, Willis Towers Watson Cure for the Common Co.

Part of the biggest problem of these processed foods is that they're sold to you as health foods so you don't think that they're bad for you but they are, right? Some people who have poor health are very overweight and they know it but they're like, 'Yeah but I love Popeye's and I eat fried chicken all the time and that's my thing.' That wasn't the case with my parents. Like them, you think that you're doing the right thing by following the government's food pyramid but you're not and the nutrition changes you can make are actually pretty simple and straightforward. - Brian Sanders Are You Stressed Out Lately?

Is your body crying out for new nutrition but you're not sure why?

Shop the BEST Organic Snacks at PaleoValley Save 15% with the code 'JOSH' PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented. Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year. The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients. Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy. PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier. Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended... on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s. Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight. Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on. Listen To Episode 440 As Brian Sanders Uncovers: [1:30] Why the Food Pyramid is a Lie BREATHE: Breath and Wellness Program Brian Sanders Food Lies Film Sapien Peak Human Podcast Nose to Tail How Brian shifted his career from being a mechanical engineer to filmmaking and interviewing health experts. Brian's close friendship with his fellow filmmaker, Jay Hanamura, who he's known since his younger years in school. His childhood growing up in Hawaii and the health journeys both he and his parents experienced. Why his family followed the government's food pyramid guidelines including cereals, pastas, and dairy for years. The struggle he went through when he lost both of his parents (dad to cancer and mom to Alzheimer's in their late 60s, early 70s) when he was 30 years old and how that has impacted his wellness journey. Brian's realization that his parents had several signs of chronic disease yet no one told them. How following the food pyramid impacted his parents' poor health signs including undiagnosed pre-diabetes. The frustration he felt at the loss of his parents because they were doing the "right things" like not going to McDonald's and cooking at home with the Food Pyramid guidelines. Why the 'Dad Bod' actually isn't a fun thing and it's a sign that you are insulin resistant. 112 Mark Sisson The huge problem we're facing in the US as processed foods are being sold to us as health foods. Slow health benefits Brian began to see as his body's composition and day-to-day health extremely changed when he took out the most processed parts of his diet. [17:00] Intuitive Food Signals Chris Masterjohn PhD 357 Robb Wolf | Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat Diana Rogers, RD Joe Rogan: Diana Rogers and Robb Wolf | The Corporatization of Food How you can tune into your intuitive food signals and follow the right nutrition to keep you healthy. The war that has been created around being vegan or eating red meat and what we should actually be talking about now. How removing oils, sugars, and flour can help turn your natural intuitive food signals back online. The unfair demonization of meat for so long when the real enemy is processed food. What questions you should be asking yourself if a brand or someone claims that a food is "heart healthy" or a superfood. How the media is always playing with us by dividing people or swaying our thoughts and opinions. Our body's production of leptin and ghrelin plus what signs we need to look out for to know if they're balanced or not. His take on calories and why he doesn't agree that we should tell people to just eat less. The fact that all calories are not the same like that which comes from carbs and fat compared to protein. Why you have to be careful about losing weight because it could also mean that you're losing muscle. The fact that you have to be careful if you're not eating enough protein (like if you go on a juice fast) because you could be losing muscle. [25:30] How to Eat to Burn Body Fat The importance of knowing that to lose fat, you have to ask yourself, "How am I going to know to be full so I can eat less energy and still be full?" How to figure out how much protein and nutrients your body needs to survive and then eat less energy so that your body can burn fat. Why people who eat a vegan diet are not getting all the protein and nutrients they need and their body begins to deteriorate because of it. Which foods you should consider adding to your diet so that they keep you full and also give you the right protein and nutrients that your body needs. Dr. Ted Naiman How to break down satiety per calorie for your body with the example of eating a piece of steak vs a bag of Doritos chips. The Dorito Effect by Mark Schatzker Exploring the food psychology behind why humans just can't stop eating processed foods like chips. How hyper-palatable foods like Doritos trick the human body into thinking it's getting nutrients but it really isn't. [32:00] Food Psychology: Shift Your Mindset & Behaviors What first steps someone can take if they want to begin to lose weight. The importance of understanding what kind of eater you are and whether you're able to abstain or moderate what and how much you eat. 129 Gretchen Rubin How Josh's body has changed since Novah was born. What Brian did to get away from mindless snacking by first realizing it's a bad habit and then allowing that habit to morph into his identity. Why health goals and eating habits will be different for everyone and some approaches will work better for your individual needs than someone else. 362 Zach Bush MD: Saving The Soil, Saving Humanity 365 Dr. Paul Saladino | Your Guide To The Carnivore Diet: The Myths of Eating Meat & Plants Why we need more protein as a nation and he believes that doing this will help us lose more weight and be much healthier. The increase in obesity that we started seeing in the USA in 1980 when the nutrition guidelines and food pyramid were first introduced and how it's been increasing ever since. Why we overeat processed foods because our body needs to reach a certain amount of protein intake vs eating a very high protein food in a smaller portion. [43:00] Secrets of the Food Industry Breaking down how businesses make profit with packaged processed foods compared to high protein foods like real meat. How his business, Nose to Tail, operates and how expensive it is just to keep up with the food production. The importance of looking at who actually funds all of these food companies such as this one on pasta which is funded by Barilla. Barilla's message to America: Pasta is healthy The toxicity of cancel culture that we're seeing today in our society. How you can break the habit of eating the same foods you did when you were an adolescent. [51:00] The Mission of Sapien About Sapien and his mission to help people become peak human. Why he wants Sapien to become the 'Apple' company of health and wellness. The lifestyle choices you make from where you live to where you shop for food and how that impacts your wellness journey. Why Brian has found himself spending less money on food now especially since he has cut snacking out of the picture or a Starbucks run or going out to eat. How we can shift the way we see food and value good quality sources for their health benefits. Food purchasing habits in the USA compared to other countries and why we don't value quality foods enough. How Brian's health transformation has helped him save money in other ways since he hasn't had to go to the doctor or paid medical bills in years. [59:30] Navigating Your New Healthy Identity What you can do once you decide to shift and build a new healthy identity for yourself. The negative consequences of referring to going off track with your diet as a "cheat day." Why it's okay to go out to eat every now and then and you shouldn't beat yourself up about it. The power in seeing going out to eat with friends sometimes and having a good time as a celebration; not the start of a shame spiral. How the flour from ancestral grains such as in Italy compares to the refined flour we have in the USA. Sourdough - Bill Schindler's The differences between real cheese and fake, sliced American Kraft cheese. Why food like the different kinds of carbs can be confusing and we have to realize there is a difference such as when you compare bread to a sweet potato. The truth about vegetable oil and why they're really just seed oils. Why all of the good oils are actually fruits: olives, avocados, and coconuts besides animal fats. How It's Made - Canola Oil Our history with consuming omega 6 fats and why traditionally humans never used to eat as much of them as they do now. Dr. Chris Knobbe Breaking down what happens to the body when we eat too many omega 6 fats. [1:12:30] Eat What Your Great-Grandmother Ate Why ancestral diets work because they're what got us here today. The fact that humans never had chronic disease until the 1900s. Sorry vegans! Australian study finds eating MEAT correlates to a longer life expectancy The incessant push against meat in the media and by big food companies and pharmaceuticals who can profit from it when it is actually good for us and fine to consume. Why it is possible for us to eat better; we just have to make the choice to change our lifestyles and shift what we use our money for each day. Brian's definition of wellness and why you cannot cheat nature. Power Quotes From The Show You Can't Cheat Nature "People are looking for a hack or to cheat nature; you can cheat nature in other ways like flying a plane but you cannot cheat your way to better health. You can't just take a pill that will make you feel like you slept for 8 hours when you really only did 3 hours. It doesn't work like that - just the same, something like fake Beyond Meat is never going to be as good as real meat." - Brian Sanders The First Step of Your New Health Identity "You have to value your wellness first to really begin to navigate your new health identity. You need to understand how valuable what you eat is and that if you do this, you will have long-term health. That is step 1. If you know enough about this, you study it and believe it enough to say to yourself, 'I will not die of Alzheimer's or cancer or heart disease and I want to live as long as I can, I need to eat better.' Then you've set in motion your desire to eat more whole foods and get rid of anything with sugar, flour, and seed oils." - Brian Sanders The Unfair Demonization of Meat "Let's not get stuck in a food camp and sometimes we're actually fighting the wrong battle. Take meat for example; it has been unfairly demonized for so long but the real enemy is processed foods: sugar, flour, and seed oils make up about 80% of the grocery store in different versions put together with different flavorings and combinations. When we look at food instincts and intuitive eating; what did we eat for all of history? We didn't have the sugar, flour, and seed oils - we had the meat and we were eating fish, eggs, and any other fruits and vegetables that we could find and that's it; it's the simplest diet ever. - Brian Sanders Links From Today's Show  Sapien Peak Human Podcast Nose to Tail 112 Mark Sisson Chris Masterjohn PhD 357 Robb Wolf | Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat Diana Rogers, RD Joe Rogan: Diana Rogers and Robb Wolf | The Corporatization of Food Dr. Ted Naiman The Dorito Effect by Mark Schatzker 129 Gretchen Rubin 362 Zach Bush MD: Saving The Soil, Saving Humanity 365 Dr. Paul Saladino | Your Guide To The Carnivore Diet: The Myths of Eating Meat & Plants Barilla's message to America: Pasta is healthy Sourdough - Bill Schindler's How It's Made - Canola Oil Dr. Chris Knobbe Patreon | Peak Human Shop the Wellness Force Store breathwork.io Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Seeking Health - Save 10% with the code 'JOSH' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Botanic Tonics – Save 40% when you use the code ‘WELLNESS40' Essential Oil Wizardry: Save 10% with the code 'WELLNESSFORCE' Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Brian Sanders Instagram Twitter Food Lies Film Instagram Facebook YouTube About Brian Sanders Brian Sanders quit his job and dedicated his life to studying health and nutrition. He is trying his best to be unbiased and to simplify the conflicting advice out there and distill down concepts into something anyone can understand. Brian is not a doctor or nutritionist. He is a mechanical engineer and he lost both of his parents to chronic disease and has set off on his own path for the last 4 years to study this topic and make sure he doesn't fall to the same fate. His role is the curator, the communicator. He has interviewed over 100 of the top scientists, doctors, nutritionists, fitness experts, and other health professionals and has come to find some simple truths that he'd like to share. A lot of this will be presented in the feature length documentary called Food Lies, but it's not all about the film. He is spreading this information to the public anyway he can. Not only has he created the Peak Human podcast, he posts daily ideas and information on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and soon to he'll be doing more videos on youtube. The bigger goal is to change the way we do healthcare. That's why he started the parent company of these projects called SAPIEN (http://sapien.org). They are building technology to help doctors, health coaches, and patients communicate more effectively and reverse chronic diseases.
