Justifying Pandemic Weight Gain Is Sneaky...Is It Poison Punch?
"I have been seeing this left. And right and also like things that people have been like sending me and all of that kind of stuff. And i feel like i've been seeing it like plastered everywhere like like weight. Gain is totally fine. You were like surviving a pandemic. And i think the reason that this to me feel so poisoned punchy is that not like it's rationalizing or like justifying weight gain right like it's okay like like what if the sentence ended there like it's okay to gain weight period. Yeah i get that. Okay i get that and i think i think like the the reason that we're seeing more and more is like particularly i see like the world is opening up right like summer's here. People are doing more things. Maybe wearing clothes. Like all of those types of things. And i think it was created or like the people who are perpetuating messages. It's like done with the best best of intentions right like it's make people feel comfortable safe like reassurance like all of those types of things but i think like i one of the reasons i wanted to talk about this like it's an example of messaging. That seems normal and and maybe even helpful but there's a lot of a lot of punch punch to it. Let's unpack let us unpack. Well yeah so. I thought it might be interesting to talk about why this messaging feels like punch so like we said like the first thing is like this justification of weight loss right. It's like he needing a reason essentially to like have gained weight so like weight gain is acceptable. If there's an obvious or concrete reason for it i think the first point that makes it punchy kinda like pregnancy. yeah exactly it's like. Oh yeah yeah like. Of course of course gain is like emir care like a human and then there is that emily. But then you have to bounce back pretty quickly because you can't stay a troll. Yes and i feel like i see that. See that so many places to write like people like. Yeah i've gained weight. 'cause i'm taking this medication or like there's just so much there's always trying to like pinpoint a reason. Why when really it's like. Life is meant to ebb and flow. Our bodies are meant to you. Evan flow and change with seasons of life with our life with all the things and so. It's just perpetuating the message. That weight gain is acceptable in certain contexts. And not in
Why You're Not Losing Weight
"Lot of people will be looking for weight loss and probably assuming that if they want to lose weight. It's got to be this militants Routine and the strict diets. What are your thoughts on that type of belief absolutely and i think that's a really common thought prices for a lot of people and i'm here to tell everyone that no you absolutely don't need to militant but we do need to be two things in my experience reaction and that is i calorie deficit and be consistent because most people who try to lose a little bit of white either a not in`eke deficit. So you know the eating really healthy and exercising and that's wonderful but it's still a little bit too much of that body so they're not seeing those sort of results that they would like or they're just not consistent the lung enough because what they're doing is just too strict and you know they're able to do for a couple of weeks Which is honestly you know tightly. No because we don't want to give up favorite foods. So i'm here to tell you that there is absolutely ruined for your favorite foods. Carbohydrates days off the gym. A couple of extra suites. All that is okay can absolutely bid But you know you just need to be consistent over time to get those results which unfortunately a lot of people aren't okapi. And i think that's a really difficult thing about human nature. I mean we talk a lot on this cost about the fact. It's not just down to willpower there. So unfair to say that As a phrase itself. But you you touched on kerry deficits. Let's go. let's go into that because it's not that straightforward i. I think it can be confusing because of course. That's the assumption that you could just eat calories consisting of chocolate and being a deficit. And that's going to help you see the results. Need if you know what i mean. Yeah i think that you know this sort of two schools of thought as you as we mentioned before. I jumped on this podcast with reality new mentioning tiktok and i've been on the uproar maybe about a year now and is a huge push from personal trainers Fitness young people even fifteen. Sixteen year. old to you now have a million below is online. Thanks this we called tiktok you interested in health and fitness and you see the same consistent message if you wanna lose fat being a calorie deficit and that is the messaging. That is all over social media at the moment. And i'm not heeded disagree with it. Ran and juice to say that it's as simple as difficult as

Overcoming Emotional Eating and Ditching Diets With Shari Broder
"I think that's something we sometimes we don't know. Am i hungry. Am i do. I need water. Am i board. Do i need a break. How can we really tune in and figure out if it's a hunger cue verses i need something emotionally or just something else in my life. Yeah well people easily first of all in our culture we don't really think about hunger and eating we don't associate the to. I mean obviously people think i'm hungry. I need to eat something but so many people do so much more than that without you know they eat. Because there's free samples at trader joe's or there's not any more from But you know or because they're at a party or because somebody put candy in the candy bowl. There's so many reasons that people eat. Now that were. They don't even think about whether they're hungry and advertising psycho. You know get a pizza and just call this number. And we don't think about hunger and then on top of that. I it sometimes is hard. Especially if that's been your orientational to just not associate. Eating and hunger is distinguishing between physical hunger. And what. I call head hunger. Which is when your brain's telling you eat something and for a lot of people that's hard. It's hard to distinguish but it really is. Hunger is a physical sensation. And maybe you. And i may experience it differently or not but you really need to get to know it and it's sort of like you have to urinate. Nobody has to tell you just know. It's a feeling right and so you go to the bathroom. Well hunger the same way but people just some people haven't experienced a long time and so they got what it feels like. It makes a lotta sense. Because i think we use food in so many different ways and in this country many of ice have access to food at any time that we think we might want it and so i think a lot of times. It really isn't that question it's just well. It's the time of day that i eat. Yup or you know this thing is happening in my life. I want celebrate.

We're going to up regulate automa- in autophagy is our bodies self eating and healing and cleansing process. It's also going to reduce inflammation and. That's because we know that insulin. This hormone that takes sugar out of the bloodstream and puts it into the cells. Also triggers inflammatory gene pathways ramps up inflammation in our body. When we're not eating. We lower we lower insulin and therefore we lower inflammation. now there's also studies about. How fasting improves the microbiome. It's like in a sense kind of like mowing and weeding your lawn. Right it's regulating your internal microbiome and ten and actually studies are showing that it favors. The development of good healthy microorganisms like ackerman zia recent affiliate which helps produce healthy mucus lining for your gut which helps prevent against the formation of leaky gut. So we get an improvement in the microbiome improvements in the tight junctions and the stability of our gut. We reduce overall inflammation and we also regenerate immune cells so when we have autoimmune conditions or chronic inflammatory conditions.

I've seen on your show that a whole foods plant based diet can help but are there any foods that are more effective than others. Well great question and thank you for asking it because you are not alone. Heart disease is extremely common and high is one of the big drivers of it Let's take the first part of what you said.

What Is Disordered Eating with Melainie Rogers, Founder of Balance Eating Disorder Treatment Center
"Talk about the lay of the land as far as what what you think are see statistically is disordered eating. I think cements people even a label. People don't like their relationship with food with an example. I was at a birthday party this past weekend. The topic of fasting intermittent fasting came up with the folks there and they were talking about man. I just feel so like psychedelic. When i'm like going on my third day of my faustin just like talking about experiences. Connections do it justice A metaphor for our lives in a big part of our lives as well And they asked me like we'll have you ever tried intermittent passing like dude. I was the queen of fasting in the day. And i just. I don't do anymore but it is so commonplace that there's all these a diet chocolate a bit about what you're seeing the doors of. Maybe he will think bad relationship and soon but are not labeling themselves or don't want to label themselves either but they want help with the relationship with food absolutely so you know a lot there and it's so true right econ go anywhere without people telling you about the latest dining whether it's kito or intermittent fasting of course is big thing right now and everyone has an opinion about it and and so what i like to think about is to ask the question. What's going on for that person before. They decided to reach out to try intermittent fasting or try the kito diana whatever unusually. It's because they had distressed about their body image impulsively they white and they may have tried other diets before. And i haven't worked and i say that inverted commas because we know that ninety five percents diets fail. I'll get to that lineup. So i'd like to ask you. What was your relationship with food. And what was your relationship with your body light before you decided to pursue intermittent fasting. What's what's the real motivation around. And usually some ability or attempt to control your white and you calories and in a way that you're looking for that civil
Arsenic in Rice: A Cause for Concern
"We'll how does arson again rice. It gets in rice just through the environment and usually through farming practices. It's it's part of fertilizers and pesticides. So when crops are sprayed with pesticides it gets into the soil and then the plants will uptake the arsenic. So that's how it gets in there. So they pull it from the ground and then it becomes part of part of the rice right and apparently rice to seems to be a crop that absorbs more are snick than may be other things like like millet or buckwheat or wa because the way rice is grown sort of flooded with water and so it just has the ability to take up more arsenic. Well how you can undo that. How much of a problem is it. I mean well it. This has been a problem kind came to light. I'm trying to think of how many years ago. It's been at least five years ago or so and i guess at that time was a topic. I think it came up on a message board that we have on our website. And i think i answered some questions there but i don't think we ever did a podcast on it so But basically it. It's issue because so many products are made with rice. So it's not just the rice that you buy and cook and eat. But it's in things like a brown rice syrup or And that's kind of one of the things that it became a concern for a lot of health foods or sweetened with brown rice syrup and then of course there's baby infant formula. That's rice cereal vegetables and it became a a real big thing with children because arsenic their bodies are much smaller. So it's going to affect them more sure and so. The the exposure to arsenic has become a concern. Because obviously in in very minute swale quantities. It's not harmful but in you know relatively Regular exposure to it it can accumulate accumulate in the body and then becomes toxic. And by the way it's known as a group a carcinogen so what so what that means. It's a it's a carcinogen of concern. It causes

What Are the Warning Signs of Clogged Arteries?
"Abroad are good to see you. My friend how you doing today. I'm doing fantastic. And i'm glad you're here because today's top question a really thought an interesting one and it comes to us from alice and alice says heart disease runs in my family and it wasn't until recently that i stopped eating fried food and a lot of fat. But i'm worried that i might miss the warning signs that i have clogged arteries. Are there any There are some You may not have them But there are some of the classic ones obviously are. The person might have chest pain Which engine And so that the heart muscles just not getting adequate oxygen and after walking if you block the person gets chest pain and then they're equivalent ones where you could get like paints because your legs aren't getting adequate blood flow. Surprisingly enough lower back pain might be in the same category but for a different reason. And that is that. If you're not getting enough of blood supply to your lower back. The discs start to degenerate and so this disease is now thought to be one of the manifestations of arterial disease amazingly enough And less person. Imagine that's quite rare. Researchers have looked at Autopsy studies of young people who are tragically killed in car wrecks or something like that and they found that there are serious artery blockages in kids as young as eighteen. And twenty. where it's because they lost an entire lumbar artery. So the bottom line years this starts early on the classic Canary in the coal mine. the big. Sign that you're gonna artery. Disease is in men in direct. The guy who's forty years old and goes to the doctor fight for viagra. He does not have a performance anxiety. What he's got narrow arteries But that of course doesn't apply to a woman so there are these warning signs. You do see them. Sometimes but for the most part you don't know you can have narrowed arteries and never know it. So that's why.

Breaking Free of the Invisible Cage of Body Obsession With Katie Barbaro
"The things that we internalize our so you know like the most loving well-meaning at mike generous parents ever and still i picked up on these little things where i was like. My mom's only ever told me. I have a perfect like my body's perfect. There's nothing wrong with me. But i see her dieting. And i'm like well there must be something. The grownups aren't telling me and so really kind of unpacking my own story for my own benefit of like. How did i get to wear a got. And i can spoiler alert. Where i got was developing really obsessive food thoughts and body thoughts and you know i basically had an eating disorder without realizing it Which i thought was also important to go into because that's so common. Because of how disordered eating is normalized in the western world and dia culture makes it so that it's not weird. If somebody council their calories and has food at the forefront of their mind and you know it's all these normal things like. I thought that i was like. Oh this is what hot people think about all the time right like there's no reason why people just be like conventionally hot without thinking about and which is hilarious because everbod. It's hot like it's like. Oh you're just an erotic beaten by being it a human body. But that's neither here nor there i mean it is it's here and there a giant so basically nice for me to be able to unpack some this because i'm like. How did this happen. And then eventually. I developed a full-blown what i considered an eating disorder with bulimia and with that even though i had had disordered eating behaviors before that time that was the first thing that for me registered as like. This is not okay Even though it wasn't an overnight fix of course like that's probably one of the biggest tenants of this journey that i went on in the story that i tell it slake. I'm not holding anything. I'm not like oh and then i recovered like there's not. I don't even think the end of the book is like and now i'm perfectly allied okay. This is an evolution of how i relate to myself. And that's what i want to communicate to
The Truth About Water and Hydration
"Water is in everything. Think about a breastfed baby. All their drinking is milk. The body is able to remove the water from the milk. So the baby never gets dehydrated in the same way once. We start eating solid food. Our bodies continue to extract water from everything we consume everything we eat or drink counts so the water in your apple counts the water. That's in the bread that you eat counts. Even coffee counts. Any fluid counts. Look i get. This is a real record. Scratch freeze frame moment for a lot of people but we don't just get the water we need from plain water and if you have one of those days where you just drink coffee all morning and you don't feel great. Maybe you're a little headache key or a little jittery. It's not because you're dehydrated. Maybe you had a little too much coffee or you had it on an empty stike if you like drinking six classes a glasses of water day and your doctor hasn't advised against it. That's probably fine. What i'm saying is that there's nothing medical about this number. We get to make choices about what we put into our body and this is one of those choices if you think about it just using common sense and putting the medicine aside does it seem realistic that we evolve needing to consume that much clean water every day in the span of human history access to clean plentiful. Drinking water is a relatively recent phenomenon and even today in many parts of the world access in clean drinking water. Sadly isn't as easy as walking into your kitchen and filling up glass.

Is it's hidden calories and so when you go to the restaurant and you order fajitas for instance you say if he as healthy i'm just gonna order veggie fajitas and it's going to be on a flower and i'm gonna eat it and it's going to be super healthy but you get it and it's dripping oil. Which is i forget. Maybe it's like one hundred and twenty cows per teaspoon tablespoon of oil. And so you're just going to get extra calories now all of oil and vegetable oils When you compare them against animal. Fats are studies. Show that they're they're healthier. They're healthier for you like when it's a head to head comparison you have your lipid profiles in your body are better when when you're when you're eating oil as compared to an animal fat yet but but there again once again so you're gonna usually when people are switching to a plant may side. They're trying to lose weight and get down back to their eighteen year weight and when you hit a plateau you gotta first thing yet check. Is that oil.
A highlight from #392: Clare Pettinger, PhD, RD Environmentally Sustainable Diets & Food Access
"To be joined by dr claire. Pittenger who is a registered dietitian a public health nutritionists and an experienced educator who is based at the university of plymouth in the uk. Dr passenger publishes research in the public health nutrition field specifically in areas raw to food systems food security and then also sustainable eating or sustainable diets. And that's what we're going to focus in on today given that. She is an advocate for promoting sustainability and then has published on ways that nutrition health professionals can hopefully do that going forward given that to this moment. There's probably not a whole lot of guidance in that area relative to the amount of interest there is in this particular topic and so we're going to dive into some of that throat this discussion and i think there's going to be overlap with previous public health. Nutrition episodes that we've had in the past before so notably weeded one on public health policy for personal responsibility. That was episode three sixty three. We've also had people like professor. Barry popkin professor cream hawks professor martin her all onto talk about varying different topics that all have some degree of overlap to think about how we are consuming food as a general population. Right now and then. What are the steps forward. Both in terms of health but then also as we'll discuss today sustainability and that has in relation to both environmental sustainability. But also things like food security and then also health inequality and so on. So if you like those previous episodes. I think this will be another one that you will really enjoy and get a lot out of the show notes. The episode are going to be over as sigmund attrition dot com slash episode. Three nine two. And there you'll be able to find links to any papers that we may mention throughout this discussion any other relevant information. I will link-ups those previous episodes of the podcast. Just mentioned and you'll also be able to get a transcript to this and previous episodes of sigma nutrition radio and also while you're over on signatures dot com check out some of the other content we have available so for example are written sigma statements which are a comprehensive overview of specific topics within nutrition that tend to be quite confusing or conflicting information on the weekend of set out an evidence base position with supporting at sure they're linked so you can check all that out and then also consider signing up to the weekly newsletter i send out which is the sigma synopsis and you can find that on the website and multiple places just popular email address. And you'll get that since you once a week. So that is it for me for the moment. Let's jump into this conversation with dr clare pittenger so here. We are dr clare pittenger. Thank you so much. For joining on the podcast. It's a pleasure to be here. Donna thank you. Yeah the the pleasure is all mine as a as i mentioned to you. I've been very much looking forward to talking through some of these ideas given the amount of your your work that i've been able to read but before we get into any of my specific questions just for people listening. Can you give a quick overview of your background of your research interests and video about your background. That may be applicable to. What will disgusted. I of course so. I am a registered dietitian and a registered public health nutritionists. I am a lecturer at the university of plymouth. I deliver 'em the public health nutrition aspect to dietetic students nutrition students and occasionally some other students as well so that's my kind of academic role. I'm also actively engaged in my own research on my research it's kind of falls under two headings but they're both very related so i'm very interested in food insecurity and using creative approaches to engage communities and marginal marginal groups especially but most recently my biggest research project but i've recently got funding for relates to the food system and hire the food system fails the people most in need so it kind of aligns my interest in environmentally sustainable diets alongside the need for better food security. So i'm doing a big food system. Transformation project at the moment which is a project but only three months old release was very very new. And that's a project that is around co production of healthy sustainable food systems for disadvantaged communities so that's a very exciting new project that hopefully watch this space for things as they emerge from that project. Amazing yeah. I think that's a perfect way to start where i really wanted to start. This discussion is can. You may be outline to you what you feel.

It's like superfan stan. I think so. I think so. I learned it from where i learned. All things tiktok just fraud. Hey just i. I used it in a sentence and i was like it doesn't taste right this. I'm not using it anymore. What's really interesting is like from my understanding of it. Oh my gosh. My friend actually texted me and she's like i'm i'm a so and so stand and like 'cause i was like telling her this story and i was like she's like wait. Let me just google something. She's like okay appropriate. Use was like god got it got it. You feel old when you need to start like googling with kids are saying you know constantly constantly just half of it. I just feel too stupid using it. So i'm like i'm not using that word in a sentence it just doesn't like it doesn't flow. No i'm trying to think of the millennial weekly recaps and that rod does. I always wanted something new there. There's a but apparently it doesn't mean anything.

Look at me just making making all the connections I think he. I guess like the gen we can start with kind of like the genesis of this episode is like a lot of the messaging that we've been seeing now that we're transitioning from the pandy to the post pandy world and you know how people are talking about that in terms of our bodies and weight and weight loss etc.
A highlight from What Do You Think About a 'Raw Foods, Vegan, Low-Fat, Mostly Fruit, With a Lot of Walking' Plan for Weight Loss?
"Jj virgin. Four time new york times bestselling author celebrity nutrition expert and fitness hall of famer. I've been on a lifelong quest for answers to the toughest health questions. And now i'm sharing what i found with you. Welcome to ask the health expert. Let's go skiing from instagram. Asked what do you think about raw foods vegan low fat so no nuts mostly fruit with a lot of walking for weight loss. I've had great success in the past what we think about that. I think that's a big big No i'll give you all the reasons when we come back. Stay with hades. Jj here and i just got a makeover. Well actually my products did. But i want to. Have you celebrate with me. So i'm doing to make over contest where you can win over three thousand dollars products and time with me to enter go to jj virgin dot com forward slash contest. All right okay. I was honestly trying to think about like gosh. What could i say. Positive here What i can say positive. Here is that i'm sure you're getting a lot of non starchy vegetables. However i have a lot of issues with this diet so and we're gonna pick apart the diet and then you've got the exercise piece And i'd love to see exactly what it is. You're you are eating but it says mostly free. Here's the challenge one to two pieces of fruit a day What you wanna be eating more than that. You're getting the sugar from the fruit. Now remember we'd whole not juiced not dry. Dried fruit is candy. Fruit made into a butter is Like a syrup or a sauce and fruit made introduces a soda. So you get super big when you do that at least when you're eating the whole fruit you're getting all of the fighter nutrients you're getting the fiber but you're not getting protein healthy fats. And here's the crazy thing. You have a raw foods vegan low fat so no nuts diet now. We can't live without protein and we can't live without fat. We can live without cart so you built a diet based on what we can live without and went really low in fat and honestly if you're doing raw food vegan diet your loan protein too so couple different couple things here you need. Protein and protein is going to be the most important thing for weight loss. It's more thermic. And it's more satiated so better for your metabolism more say shading and we can't live without it and you need a to build. Muscled have strong hair nails skin in great bones Plus it's going to help you feel fuller longer. So there's that some foods just need to be cooked. They're better absorbed and some food. You cannot cook cannot eat if you haven't cooked them so going. Totally raw is problematic. You're not gonna be able to eat a big variety of food And then not eating nuts and seeds. Were you could get some your protein your healthy fats challenging too so if i was going to eat a vegan diet i would look at what foods i need to eat cooked things like sweet potato or tsinghua or wild rice because you can't eat them raw. I would look at what foods That i wanted to add in were great sources of healthy fats like chia and freshly on flaxseed and walnuts things weren't going to get some threes. But your diet right here. Is you know. I worry about a diet. Where if you didn't supplement you become nutrient efficient things like b twelve and make threes especially apn dha carnitine taurine And you're not going to be able to get the protein and healthy fats. That you need. For weight-loss protein is your best friend and protein and fat or super important for society for reducing inflammation for improving insulin sensitivity for brain function for mood for grape skin hair nails. And if you're eating mostly fruit you're gonna really hijacked your blood sugar and you know eat too high of a carb diet which will raise your and start to put you at risk for things like hypertension elevated cholesterol cetera. So that's the diet side on. You know the the good thing is hey. We should be eating some non search raw vegetables every single day. That's fantastic eat a great big salad with things like cucumbers and maybe a little bit of red onion and Whatever vegetables you like to have in it. I like some cabbages and some salad. Greens and little bit of red onion and some hearts palms artichokes and things like that. So that's great. Get a good salad in and then look at the things that you can add in that are cooked that actually when you cook the vegetables a little bit and add a little bit of healthy fat. You'll absorb much more of the nutrients because think about your fat soluble vitamins. A d e k in need fat. That's what they that saw. You will means in order to absorb them moving over to the exercise side. I have a four four step process for exercise. The first thing is just to move morris to walk and walking. His great walking after meal is really great for lowering the blood sugar response to the meal But to really change your metabolic rate resistance training cheek because one of the simplest ways you can change your metabolic rate. Assuming you're fired is working. Well is to increase. The amount of muscle on your body helps improve insulin sensitivity. It's the first place you can do it. Right and more muscle requires more energy more work by your body to keep it there so resistance training super qian important here. High intensity interval training an auction debt. Your body has to recover from and then some kind of flexibility in mindfulness. Help your stress hormones. So walking is a great start but it's only a part of the equation all right. Hope that served if you've got questions. I've got answers pop
A highlight from The Dental Diet Book Review
"And morning and welcome to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. We are going to take a little different approach. This morning to our delivery of today's topic to you we're going to do in old fashioned book review on a book that is full of important information and actually on a topic that we've only really ever covered once ever on dishing up nutrition and this topic is about oral health. It's about our teeth about our gums. Are facial structure. Our josh structure are airway formation. And how all of these things are connected to what we eat. It's connected to our nutrition. The information packed book. That we're going to be talking about this. Morning is called the dental diet. It was written by dr steven lin. Who is aboard accredited dentist and an author who practices dentistry down in australia so before we introduce ourselves. I have a couple of questions for the listeners. did you realize that forty. Two percent of kids develop holes in their baby. Teeth so yes. I said that that have that forty. Two percent of kids develop cavities in their baby teeth. And did you know that. Four million kids in the us wear braces because of crooked teeth. And did you know that the number of people who are wearing orthodontics doubled between one thousand nine hundred eighty two and two thousand eight so those are really startling. Statistics dr lynn. Who's the author of the dental diet. Points out that the role of points out the role of food and nutrition plays in tooth decay and why so many people have crooked teeth. It's a book packed with so many little nuggets of information. And let me say this right now. His book goes way beyond just limiting our sugar intake and how sugar can be harmful for oral healthy goes way beyond that and some of those things. We're going to explore this morning to introduce ourselves. My name is leah klein showed. I'm a registered and licensed dietitian and i really have a great interest and understanding the role of food and nutrition. And how that plays out Not only in their dental health and various other places in our body and really. I'm hoping that like the information. That's in dr lind's book. I can use apply in my family's life so that my son doesn't have the same fate that i did with a braces for a couple of years in those teenage years and getting my wisdom teeth out and then joining me. This morning i have another mom with me. Teresa wagner who is a registered and licensed dietitian as well so theresa was one of the most interesting or important pieces of information that you took from this book. Well i thought it really interesting that dental problems or dental disease only started after the industrial revolution. That was a time in our history. When people started eating more processed foods especially white flour and sugar at that same time people began eating less and less real food. So you know. Fossil records show us that ancient egyptians the muzzle lipik counter gatherers indigenous people and tribes throughout the world. Have straight teeth and the absence of dental disease but once the western diet was

"June prime with no space for the discount as so peter. The way will do this. And it's a very conversationalist between all of us all to give you a little background. Well although we're a health and fitness podcasts We we talk about financial health all the time. Yes we had. Peter schiff on here a few months back and so. We've we've had. on here and talk and one of the things that i loved about. I found you on the the walker webcast little over a year ago. So that's that's how. I came across your content and one of the things that that drew me in about. Your content was a lot of times. When i listened to economists. Talk about i. I feel like they're very biased. Or they have an agenda whether they're trying to sell gold or they have a political agenda. And i don't know you can argue or debate that but i feel that you do not come off that way. I feel like you're very non-bias. And so i wanted to introduce you to our audience. Well that's nice of you. Say i i have this funny thing. I'm seventy years old in. My career is typified by democrats convinced. I'm a republican and republicans are convinced. I'm democrat. So i think it goes to what you're saying and i started pride myself on that none of us always succeed being free of whatever but i try and to your physical fitness. You know seventy years old. I did eighty minutes on the stationary bike. This morning lifted weights for an hour. Walk ten miles while we're out pretty good right on pretty good and and you did some work from the chicago school right. So you're like milton friedman fan. If i'm not mistaken milton. Melton was one of my professors back. Down and i did my graduate work there and i stayed on the faculty there. A couple of years and then went to the university of pennsylvania's wharton school of business in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. And i guess i retired from there ten years ago and i sense folk. I had let him in associates which is a financial advisory firm. I started in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy nine and i continued doing that in my boards and my investing might charity. So anybody interested. You go to lenin and associates and you'll see about what we do in our publications and our charity yan and so forth. So i'm not retired but a tired university world now. That's that's awesome. Milton's series free to choose had a huge impact on me and it became a huge fan of economics After that i do wanna ask you to open this up. One big question. I read recently that the majority of of of dollars the the the majority of money That exists got created recently. And i remember what the number was but it was something insane like the when you look at the total amount of money that we have that we've created. It was something like ninety percent of it was made in the last few years number. One is that true and number two. Does that a problem. Could that potentially cause problems for us. So is absolutely true I'm now gonna do numbers off time. I had but as we came to the beginning of the financial crisis in very late. Two thousand eight. The total amount of was called high-powered money are or the money stock. Whatever you wanna call it was an. I'm doing this from memory about eight hundred billion and over the next four or five years. We won julie to huey three joke. Eight hundred billion to about four trillion. That's so big. Jump out all of the history of the united states took it basically from nothing to eight hundred billion and then in a matter of four years it went to four trillion and then What i call queue infinity which has happened with the fed ejections associated with the co vented.

A highlight from Why Has Our Culture Moved Away From Fasting?
"Celebrity nutrition expert and fitness hall of famer. I've been on a lifelong quest for answers to the toughest health questions. And now i'm sharing what i've found with you. Welcome to ask the health expert. Joanne from instagram asks. Fasting has such a long and rich history. Wiser culture moved away from this model of eating hades. Jj and today. I have my buddy dr wilco with me to answer this question. He was named one of the top fifty functional medicine and integrative medicine docs in the nation and he sees patients globally through his virtual clinic. He's also the co host of goop fellas podcast and author of bestselling books catering the implementation spectrum and the new one intuitive fasting. He's also had big peleton host.

Well actually my products did. But i want to. Have you celebrate with me. So i'm doing over contest where you can win over three thousand dollars products programs and time with me to enter. Go to jj burge dot com ford slash contest. Fasting has such a rich long history. It's been used throughout the world over millennia for different reasons obviously from an ancestral health perspective. food wasn't always available so it was something our genes would have adopted to Because brisard estimates that about ninety nine percent of our genetics haven't changed in ten thousand years yet. Our world has changed very dramatically in a very short period of time when you're looking at the the context of the totality of human history. Just of the last one hundred years two hundred years let alone ten thousand years the amount that change. It's happened and we've moved away from periods of fasting because of convenience because of Modernity the comes with many amazing things but it's comes with a massive price tag for many people. In the form of chronic inflammation problems different autoimmune issues mental health issues which our physical health issues that something that i talk a lot about an intuitive fasting. Is that mental. Health is not separate from physical health. Mental health is physical health. Our brain is part of our body. And you can't separate things taking xining depression and fatigue in brain fog with physical health. I mean the we have to look at the neuro inflammatory pathways. That are a part of this. Research shows very clearly. Most cases have these inflammatory components to them. So do we have to look at this wise. They're arise chronic inflammation because of this genetic epigenetics mismatch. This world has changed very dramatically in a short period of time and this evolutionary mismatch is at the heart of Researchers are really exploring is why we have this epidemic rise auto immune issues chronic health problems and brain health issues. So fasting is a way to decrease the chasm between genetics and epigenetics. Our environment foods. We eat the the way that we live our life and our dna so instead of our genetics on dna. Living in a brave new world. More in alignment. Our lifestyle can be more alignment with what we've evolved with years millennia millennia. So that is really what. I'm exploring an intuitive fasting From an ancestral health perspective but also from a spiritual and religious standpoint fasting has been used to even when food was available. So if you look at islam with ramadan or judaism with yom kippur. Tish bob in christianity with lent All of these are fasting times or they started out fasting times but they are still fasting. Time for many people Because there is a stillness and as time to eat and a time to fast and we've lost that connection with their body and the inner stillness in the inner Recalibration that can happen through times of fasting. It's very very powerful. And that's that spiritual side of fasting is something. I'm also exploring. Intuitive fasting is that i call them. Metaphysical meals in the book is when you are doing these flexible. Intermittent fasting windows. What do you do when you monopoly eat. So many people are eating because the board or eating because they're stressed eating because they want to distract themselves or eating because that's what they always do at this time so when you start shifting the window and doing these ebbing flowing flexible fasting does. I wanted to give people something. Do during bath fasting window. So things journaling. Mindfulness meditation getting out in nature syndrome. Yoku the forest bathing. What the japanese in the south koreans are looking at in the scientific literature of meditating through the forest and using nature as a meditation reconnecting ourselves to earth where we came. So it's you know there's such a divorce nature going on modern life. Were divorced from the things. Were a part of so just reconnecting ourselves to our ancestry in many ways reconnecting ourselves with what genetics have adapted to its reconnecting with our inner stillness and quieting that noise. So it's profound thing when you bring in the spiritual. My phone is component to fasting. It is a beautiful thing that is decreasing that chasm again between genetics and epigenetics.

A highlight from Do Stents Work? Part 1
"Gregor today. We look at stents those tiny tubes that doctors insert into a blocked artery to try to keep an open. Did you know that there's demonstrably little or no benefit. They hundreds of thousands of stent procedures performed outside of an emergency setting. Here's our first story. The large national cardiology conferences may the of cardiologists in the entire country. In one place. So hey you're going to have a heart attack. That would seem to be the place to do it. And indeed. that's when the american heart association president had his within hours of his presidential address with so many of the nation's top cardiologists at the conference. Maybe that's a bad time to go into cardiac arrest anywhere else. Though you don't know until you go to the test to their surprise they found substantially lower mortality among those go into cardiac failure cardiac arrest during the big national cardiology meetings. Why is the death rate lower when most of the cardiologists are away. One potential explanation is that the intensity of care maybe lower suggesting the harms of such care make unexpectedly outweigh the benefits. Their results echo paradoxical findings documented during a labor strike by israeli physicians during which were toddy rates. Evidently dramatically fell and it wasn't just one strike. There's been looked at multiple times in all reported. Cases mortality either stayed the same or decreased in for the seven cases mortality dropped as a result of the strike and in three there was no significant change. The fact is that many current medical practices have been found offer no benefit and in fact potential harms even physicians themselves. Estimated that about a fifth of medical care is on necessary. National summit was convened by the joint commission accredits hospitals and the american medical association to identify areas of overuse treatments that provides zero or negligible benefit potentially exposing patients to a risk of form for nothing. The called out five practices for example prescribing antibiotics for viral upper respiratory tract. And i spending a billion dollars prescribing drugs. That don't work. And if anything just make things worse but another overuse practice identified was elected per cutaneous coronary intervention in other words angioplasty and stents just to get everyone on same page before we dive in coronary artery disease number. One killer of men and women involves blockages in the blood. Vessels that supply the heart muscle itself. Low blood flow can lead to a type of chest. Pain called in china or if severe a to a heart attack plant based diet and lifestyle programs have been shown to reverse these blockages by treating the cause of wire arteries are clogging up in the first place but for those unable or unwilling to change their diet is there are drugs that can help as well more invasive treatment such as open heart surgery to try to bypass the blockage or perky tune is coronary intervention. I swim. Doctors insert small balloons or metal tunnels called stint up through large blood. Vessels typically groin and read them all the way up into the heart that way you can get inside the blocked vessels and try to open them up from them open during a heart attack. This can be lifesaving. But hundreds of thousands of these procedures are done every year for stable angina manning on a nonemergency basis which can relieve symptoms but doesn't actually reduce your risk of having or dying from a heart attack in the future however not. Everyone knows that they mistakenly think. The procedure offers more than just symptom relief. I one of the reasons i'm doing. This video series has harbored. Put extender for pain not protection but then one believably. It was discovered that stents may not even help with pain as revealed in this double blind randomized controlled trial way. You can blind people to the active freeman drug trials by giving them a placebo sugar pill but wouldn't you kinda notice if you've got surgery or not whether or not they cut into your growing not if you got shame surgery. Placebo surgery where they cut into everyone. Threat up the catherine at the last moment randomly actually do or do not actually place the actual stent and those who got the fake surgery d just as well as those who got the regular surgery. Wait. there are no benefits to angioplasty and outside of an emergency setting doesn't prevent heart attacks doesn't enable you to live longer and doesn't even help with symptoms and since the procedure carries some risks including death. Maybe stench should be used only by people who are actively having heart attacks but waves so hundreds of thousands of people are getting these operations for nothing. The doctors justified just greed. How did they get patients to sign up. do they. Not tell them the truth and we. Why doesn't it work. I mean you are after all opening up a blocked artery just so many questions which will start addressing next in our next story we look at how most heart attacks are caused by non obstructive blacks that infiltrate the entire coronary artery train angioplasty which when a tiny balloon is inserted into a narrowed coronary artery. Feeding your heart force it to open wider to improve blood flow wasn't put to the test in a randomized controlled trial until nineteen ninety two and it failed to prevent heart attacks and failed to show any survival benefit but they only about them out six months and including people with relatively minor disease. Who maybe just weren't sick enough to benefit enter the mass trial enrolling those with some veer blockages up in their widowmaker. Artery or widow were maker coronary. Artery disease is also the number one killer of women and followed them out for years and there was no difference mortality heart attack. Okay came but there were only about two hundred patients. Maybe the benefit was so subtle that you just needed a greater number of patients to tease out. The effect enter the rita to study randomized more than a thousand patients and they did indeed get a clear difference than the risk of future death and heart attack but it was in the wrong direction. The angioplasty group suffered twice the risk compared to those randomized to four. Go surgery okay. But that was all before. Stengths came into vogue and said just ballooning up the artery how about permanently inserting a stent a metal mesh tube to prop the artery open Surely that's gotta help. Which brings us to mass to and still no benefit okay but that was after just one year still no benefit after five years or even ten years later. The
A highlight from 1577: What to Do When You Are Getting Bored With Your Workouts
"You know one of the worst things about being consistent. I would say about working are actually. This is true for people. Even when they first get started is they. It starts to get a little bit Mundane yeah you start to get a little bored with the same old same old and this is just a challenge. I think you end up running into you especially especially in my experience when you're super consistent when you do it week in and week out at some point start to find yourself going Yeah i'm not as excited as i for us to be in. This can be a problem. It's actually well. This is the reason why we see this with trainers to where they write programming. That's based around creativity and entertainment vs results trying to spice it up. And i remember this and that i so. I have a lot of empathy for the trainers. That are trying to figure this out. Cast a real need. And you're also you're just getting started. You're building your business and you gotta take every client you possibly can and a good portion of them are there for the results but they also want to have fun and enjoy the process and so what you end up finding yourself doing because you know that you can't really speed up the results of sony's one hundred pounds. Use it coach. You know that this going to be a long journey. But in the meantime can i make this fun and enjoyable and then a lot of your focus ends up kind of going in that direction. I think i mean i know. I admit that i went down this path of like the writing the workouts instead of me. Really think about programming razzle valley sir. Juggle that all the time because you know the the tried and true methods are but not a lot of times. It's just not that exciting. I in to take somebody through especially if they have a lot of prerequisites that you have to focus on and corrective type exercises. It's like you almost feel bad as a traitor. May i got so much work to do. But i also wanted to have them. Come back in and be entertained and enjoy the process so you know you sprinkle some stuff in there to to make sure that stays a bit excited. Yes because early trainer version of me was doing the razzle dazzle new thing all the time type of workout. The problem with that. Of course it's you just don't progress as consistently as well. The programming is as effective. When that's all you do now on the flip side constantly being consistent with the basics which is very important but always doing that. After a while you can just find yourself losing a little bit of that that spice that you initially had when you started working out later on i realized that that feeling of god i want to try something different revenue in the same thing or the same types of things now for a while is actually a good opportunity and this is some. It took me a long time to figure out. It was a good opportunity. Because it was something that then would propel me to focus on things to do things that normally. I don't think i would have normally focused on the so like i'll give you guys a good example for a long time. This is one of my earliest stories of of changing things up early. Early days of working out personally. The types of workouts that were promoted everywhere. Didn't matter where you look bodybuilding magazines if you read books on a muscle and this is before. The internet really became a big thing. So we're talking about the the nineties essentially Every single routine was this body parts split type of workout so it was like day one was chest was back and so on and i did that for a long time and at some point i started to find myself. Get a little bit like want to try something different. Like what's going on and it was looking back. It was actually a good thing because what it did is it motivated me to look into the way that old school strongmen and bodybuilders the way that they used to train so i started looking up routines for like eugene san dow in steve reeves. And all you know all these old school strongman and strength athletes and one thing that i noticed was none of them.

A highlight from Moving away from body building and improving body image with Lauren Cadillac
"Dietitian certified intuitive eating counselor and certified personal trainer who owns and operates her own virtual private practice. Lauren is a retired bodybuilder and eating disorder survivor. Who has promised to share a few steps that she took to building a better body. Image after bodybuilding laurin. Alright i have to admit. I did a stocker instagram. Scroll when i was preparing for our episode today. Lauren and i couldn't help but notice that about five or six years ago. You shared an entirely different message on your platform as a registered dietitian. So can you take us back to lawrence circa two thousand fifteen or so and let us know what your body image was like. At that time. I feel like more serpent. Twenty fifteen lousy completely different human being my mentality around and wellbeing and your the way that i talked to myself in myself was completely different than it is. Today i was heavily. Involved in the bodybuilding industry. Especially in two thousand fifteen. I was doing again. Did like five or six shows that year so my whole identity was wrapped up in being a bodybuilder and my message on social media was about fitness and nutrition in a very I guess wait centric lens with my body. Fat percentage in. Here's my six weeks out photos and basically everything that makes me cringe now is who i was You know i was giving it a little bit of what. And i know i get the notifications. Here's opposed to desert years of that. And i'll get these near Hosts and i'll read the caption on them. And they'll say things like learn to love your body even in off season or on the journey and blah blah blah and. I feel like. I just posted back. Because that's what everyone else is posing what i was supposed to be hosting An oar maybe. I really did think i had a positive body image but i think it's only because i fit into this very specific body type. I mean i walk around a builder and I think in our culture. We see that as the pinnacle of health. It looks like you're healthy you. You know you're muscular. And you've got low body fat and people assume that that means that you're you're very healthy and so i think soon that had positive body image but it was definitely all very conditional and there was a lot of fear around it changing so much so that i actually developed alenia. I in my body building years because of that. Fear of my body no longer looking like Yeah and i just want to say that. I appreciate you leaving the old content on your page because i think it just shows that you are a human being like everyone else you know. Most of us even professionals have been impacted by diet culture and on there you can really see the progression and how your relationship with your body has really changed over the years. So i think it's super relatable and you know i think that from diet culture where really sold this message. That positive body image is only about right how we look the size we are what size pants we fit in. You know i like that. You said you were focused on that and so from the outside looking in you know by society standards you did look healthy but you share that you are struggling with an eating disorder at that time and i know because i'm familiar with your message that you really weren't healthy then so if you could you just share for some listeners. Who may not be as familiar with your story. What was really going on at that time with your relationship with food and with your relationship with your body that people couldn't see It's funny because people used to obviously kind of make comments say things fire so dedicated That bob and even at the time. I remember thinking things like no. You don't because look like this. I have to feel terrible. You now and i don't want to act like i walked around severely depressed and terrible one hundred percent of the time you i had happy moments in there were great thing. I'm as well but for the most part. I was stressed out. Because i was always worried about hitting my rose or making sure i have my meals or meal. Prepping having time to go to the store getting my workouts in my workouts were incredibly long enough to see them for sake of german people. But they're very long included cardio at spring training Mike guy gestion was supermax. Set by actually got to get a colonoscopy twenty fifteen because i remember eating some like turkey ground turkey meal i used to be a sale at the time and i used to carry one of those refrigerator bags where you carry the thinking that it's still working with me all day. I remember eating turkey meal As on it eighty for like a weekends rose. And i feel like something about out really must let my stomach in reality was probably the back that had no variety in my diet. I was under eating over exercising. Basically have any sorter But i had to get a colonoscopy had might colitis you know. I was constantly bloated kind of go back and forth. We'd having diarrhea or not being able to go My mood was super up and down mostly down. I was super bowl. Frankie is not a fun person to be around. Anti-social hired collins about all the things that but how all the ways that you can kill bad and that's pretty much stomach mentally feel about visibly. Yeah wow wow. I always say that Worldly validation you know getting compliments from other people can feel good in the moment but when you look at this bigger picture is it worth it you know. Is it really worth to go through that. I mean it sounds like you're going through so many different things and you know disordered eating having eating disorder absolutely can impact your digested digestion. Your health so. I'm happy that you brought that up but yeah just a reminder for everyone listening here yes i do wanna validate that getting you know validation from other people compliments about the way you look. It feels good in the moment. But we have to look at your whole entire relationship with good in your life and how this is impacting your everyday way of living. I mean you know we from seeing lawrence. She looked happy healthy all of the above but on the inside obviously after what she shared it really. It wasn't like that. So was there a time. Lauren was there. Maybe something that happened where you decided it was time to make a change. Yes i went through a pretty
