Your Pursuit of a Better Body and the Perfect Diet Is Never Going to Make You Happy
"Welcome to the show folks I have today. Actually, an old family friend of mine Doug Wilson, who is the Minister of? Christ. Church in Moscow Idaho, Church that I attended through much of my childhood and also during college and still visit quite frequently whenever I'm down in Moscow Idaho which is only about ninety minutes from from my home in Spokane, and so I've I've known Mr Wilson for quite some time and he actually had a stint in the US Navy for a while. and. Then he attended the same university that I did University of Idaho ever while I got a glorified personal training certification he studied philosophy, and since then went on to do quite a bit notably, he he helped found and now serves on the board of Logo School, the school that my wife attended, which is a classical and Christian K through twelve school down in Donna Moscow he's also the senior fellow of theology at New Saint Andrews. College. In Moscow Idaho, which I would consider to be One of the better liberal arts institutions in the country actually end quite close to the coffee shop that my mom actually runs down in Moscow. Idaho and so I'm familiar with a lot of the students that go to that university as well or or that college as well a he has authored many books Mr Wilson is a prolific author and and his books are fantastic. He has A. Books on marriage on on child rearing on on I absolutely love his his titles on raising boys just because I have twin boys myself some excellent books on Christian Education his son Nathan Wilson. You might also be familiar with as as a as a well-known fiction author and all a link to to all of his books as well as everything else that we talk about if you go to Ben Greenfield fitness, dot com slash Doug, Wilson and. Doug also has about a metric ton of grandkids spread across the planet with what seems to be rapidly increasing frequency, and so he has a he has a lot of a lot of children out there bearing his name as. and so it the the topic that I really wanted to get into today is related to a book that Mr Wilson wrote called confession of a Food Catholic. I'm also going to link to that in the show notes as well because I I really really love to get. Your perspective. In by the way, I seem to be going back and forth between Doug and Mr Wilson, what do you prefer for for the show on Doug is great. All right. That's GonNa that's GonNa shorten the syllables I gotta us. All right. So so doug, you wrote this book called Confessions of a Food Catholic and and I know that you've also done quite bit of thinking about how we tackle this. the this relationship between health and fitness and pursuit of a better body and caring for our bodies and carrying for God's Temple but at the same time. Not kind of a sliding into into a selfish obsession with with our bodies and with health or with longevity or anti-aging at all costs, and this is certainly something that's been a a topic on my mind quite a bit lately and so. the this book confession of Food Catholic that you wrote with you say is dedicated all those at church dinners. I noticed didn't have enough protein on their plates and tried to cover it up by noticing I didn't have enough Greens on mine. Let, let's start here what what is a food Catholic and how would you describe yourself as a food. Catholic. Great. Thanks for having me on. This is a great opportunity afoot. Catholic is someone who believes that all foods are acceptable for us to eat with regard to our spiritual condition. In other words, I cannot put distance between me and God through anything I, put my mouth or I. Can't be put right with God through anything that I eat what I've noticed, and the reason I wrote the book is that many people feel they eat they feel a spiritual guilt either they feel if they eat poorly, if they missed the regimen that they assigned for themselves, it's not like, Oh, I failed to do the extra push up. It's there's a spiritual guilt that many people feel. And what I wanted to do was go to war with that sensation of guilt with regard to what you eat now if someone said yeah. But if someone had a a diet of deep fat fried twinkies and that's all. That's all they ate wouldn't that be bad for them or yeah it'd be bad for them. It'd be bad for their physical wellbeing is not healthy, but they're not corrupting their soul by means of the twinkie. Now, they may be corrupting their soul by means of their lack of discipline but that's a different issue. It's a different category. So we have a tendency to blame when we have a moral failing or. A spiritual shortcoming, we want to blame the stuff instead of addressing the root spiritual issue, which is your relationship to God i. think it's far worse to be fighting with someone over what they you go out to lunch with a friend and you spend the time quarrelling over what they ordered instead of just enjoying the time with your friend, right so so you're saying basically, is that sometimes the the legalism or the Self Righteousness That we get with with a lot of these laws that we set up for our self regarding food whether it's you know I'm going to be gluten free or I'm avoiding carbohydrates or I'm I'm not consuming vegetable oils because those aren't good for my body. What you're saying is that is that what you would care more about is not whether someone eats organic or processed food but why they're actually making those decisions exactly. So if What somebody else eats is frankly none of my business they're the one asked to eat it is their lunch they ordered it e if you want a a meal that's higher in fiber are lower in fiber or you need gluten not there or you maybe earth counter countering you order extra gluten. Right. Fixed. Diluting powder but we actually call that soy sauce. So. So you use this term in the book called the Food Pharisee, which is great. The P. H. O. Food Pharisee. And you describe these food pharisees as those who who would be unwilling to bring their food laws before the Bible to be examined and and said, that's a topic that Christians really need to think through biblically and when you get into this whole concept of a food fairs lifestyle, what I'd love you to do if possible is telling, you told me what you would describe a food Baresi. And then get into some of the issues regarding I. Think you break it down into into five different issues that this food pharisee lifestyle could be described as. So if you bring your food if you. Say Okay I want to compare how I eat to the Bible I to bring my food choices in the Bible. There's good news and bad news well, good news and bad news for the Food Pharisee. The good news is that whatever it is you're eating is fine. That's the good news. The bad news is whatever it is. Your neighbor is eating is also fine and the food pharisee is someone who wants to feel superior. They want to look down on someone who's making sub optimal choices right
Carnivore Diet Myths Debunked
"Is up guys welcome to this solo cast episode think you'd have been Greenfield for the questions which I will be answering in Solo casts episode. As many of you may know I've written the book, the Cardboard Code Rushing the video. You can see there behind me, this podcast will be released the first week of August twenty twenty one the second edition of my book is now live. So if you enjoy information check out the book dot, Carnivore Code Dot Com if you guys are new to this you. Haven't heard me talk to Ben. About the Carnivore Diet to previous podcasts on the Carnivore Diet you may WanNa check out in addition to this. So I was on Ben's podcast in March of Twenty nineteen and then last year or earlier this year when the first edition of the came out, I did the first solo cast on Ben's episode on Ben's show in which I answered some reader questions, not the Carnivore Code and after Ben read the book, He me a list of questions that he had about. The were code and that is what I will be diving into more specifically today on this solo casts episode. As many of you know Ben is a student of this stuff about chemistry. So some of these questions are pretty detailed try and break them down as clearly as I can. There's a lot of good nuance here that I think bring guys a lot of value. If you are more interested in ain't virata your Ordina, I'll give you three minutes summary Now for dive into some of these finer points the. Carnivore Diet is is an idea of an animal based I in contradistinction to plant based sides of today, the feces that I advance in my book the Carnivore Code are twofold in broad terms. The first is the animal foods specifically red meat and ruminant animals have been incorrectly vilified the last seventy years mostly at the by the result or as a result of incorrectly done science based on observational epidemiology. We have answer keys to thank for that. In many ways I've done a great podcast on my show with Natasha. Wrote Big Fat surprise in which we breakdown many of the myths surrounding saturated fat. So I probably will not get into saturated fat in this episode today. But if you want to know why we have such a bad misunderstanding, saturated fat listened to that episode on my podcast, we go into the details of saturated fat why it's actually very healthy for humans approach to get into it a little bit. Today with steering acid later but that is a big big misconception. There are many other misconceptions regarding read me that will cause cancer that will cause heart disease that it was shorten your life. Some of those will address today they are all addressed in my book, but they are all false none of them are supported by real interventional science actual experiments. They are false claims made based on observation deeming allergy. That has been widely misinterpreted and is inherently flawed Ben and I have talked about this in the past on previous shows. So referred of those. So the first of the book, a Carnivore Co is that Red Meat Animal Foods knows detail organ meets, which I want to talk about a lot today are critically important in the human diet. The part of every humans diet if we wish to be healthy and optimal and they should not be shunned based on incorrect science embrace the red meat especially. And know that you need those meeting Oregon's in order to thrive Ben I know is becoming more and more a fan of organ meats. He many nose to tail meals in the past together with the great. Great. Enjoyment in there are many amazing stories of that and let him tell you at some point in the future. The second thesis of the book is the plant foods exist on a toxin spectrum plants are rooted in the ground. They have no defenses other than the toxins they have evolved. This is not really conjecture botanical science. In the Condor Code I discussed multiple studies showing there are thousands and thousands of plant toxins that are present in plants and these can be harming. It's my golden writing. This book is not commit everyone to stop eating all plants. It's to empower you to realize to fold as saying here now that red meat and animal foods are the most nutritious foods on the planet that I mean containing the most bioavailable sources of all the nutrients humans need to thrive and number two that if you're not kicking as much fun as you want, you may be you may be well served by considering the plan foods you're eating on A. Spectrum which also outlined in the book and eliminating the plants that are most toxic that may be harming you in a variety of ways plans make defense chemicals. This is undeniable and again again all out in the book, it's a very comprehensive book over six hundred fifty references, and that is a broad strokes outlook on the way that I think humans really should be eating the first part. Of the book is about evolution we talk about the human brain is talking about the human brain in book at that point, and I talk about how it's gotten very big very quickly over the last two, million years primarily as a result of humans eating meat hunting I'm going to answer some questions been had in regard to this that in this podcast in secondarily I, talk about the fact. that. When we began agriculture are health when south very quickly and there's very good evidence that this is the really the massive change in the nutritional density of our foods accompanied that as we were hunting less and I will talk about that specifically in this podcast because Ben asked a question about that second part of the book is mostly about plant toxins I breakdown individual types of land toxins. I about polyphenyls why I think we've got this all wrong Benon I may respectfully disagree here but I I do make out what I believe is a very strong case for the book and I would love more discussion with this in the future I talk about oxalate electons solicits and I talk about all kinds of things like that. That are harming US isothiocyanates, which I will talk about today. which are things like fourteen in goal trian. and. How these plant compounds can affect for Mona balance that can affect nutrient absorption. They can affect our gut and really wreak havoc in lot of us if we are not aware of how present in our diet they are, how we might detoxify them in house. Some of US might be more specifically sensitive to them than and they can be causing us great harm and suffering the third part of the book is about to bunking. MITTS in the book. I. Talk About. I. Bunk. With me at that assurance, your life that causes cancer that causes heart disease and that you need fiber to poops all that is in the book I won't get into all of that today I could never do that would be a six hour podcast restaurants in there and in the fourth and final part of the book I outline very clear perspective very clear a model for how to eat a diet outlined five tiers. Of the Carnivore Diet, which gives the reader a sense of how to do this that works best for you and they some of them include plants a tier one for Diet includes plants I call it carnivore ish, but it gives you a toxicology spectrum and the foods that I believe are least toxic are included. They are able to be included on a carnivore ish type diet. Ben Himself has often said that he's eating carnivores. Words in his mouth I think that he would agree with this that he's thinking about making the majority of his Diet Animal Foods and organ meats, and then eating the foods, the plant foods that agree with him the most and thinking about the toxicity spectrum of those plants.

Tools For Faster Recovery: Sound Therapy, Vibration Therapy & More - With Guest Ben Greenfield
"Listen have you ever thought about about what the true limits of human potential are are we limited by our physicality limited by our ability to think differently and are we limited by our ability to express health and wellness or our ability to recover quickly from the things that we go through. Well today. You're going to find out out that the human potential is actually boundless. We are boundless individuals. Even our brains capacity to learn to process information. We're only scratching the surface on what we are realizing we're capable of doing. You might have heard the statement that we only use maybe ten percent of our brain. But that's not actually true. We in fact us a hundred percent of our brains every day even were sleeping. They're different parts of our brain that going into overdrive doing a lot of work and even a lot lot of housekeeping but the sad reality is we use one hundred percent of our brain but we don't use it very well we don't use it to one hundred percent of its capacity. And that's one of the things we're GONNA we'll be talking about today is how do we actually improve that amazing organ that's governing our entire life or at our brain is where we're able to actually really see right. We're taking in information we have these optical receptors but we're seeing inside of our incredible brain right so it's like a a a screen inside of our brain. They were really watching these things. It seems like we're seeing taken to the outside world but that visual of our brain is actually towards the back of our brain. That's one thing how we're seeing taking information. Site sounds our senses but also our brain is controlling our metabolism if we talk about the Hypothalamus for example which is Kinda master master gland and our brain it determining in communicating with our thyroid which is regulating our metabolic rate our adrenals which is determining different hormones. Are we in a state of stress where we are potentially breaking down Tissue in our bodies our muscle tissue and turning it into glucose for fuel because because we're running in this hyper sympathetic nervous system so your brain is controlling based on your perception of reality and the awareness of the nutrients we have available in our the system and the list goes on and on is controlling metabolism right and so those are just a couple of aspects are emotion or mood how we feel we have these neurotransmitters and hormones and your hypoth- ou- Mrs Actually the interface of all of those things are neurotrophic transmitters in hormones in determining how we feel and how our cells communicating with each other which is kind of important and so again us understanding and supporting our brain health and also our physicality you know the stuff from the head down what's up there. How can we perform better? How can we increase our rate of recovery? What if we're injured? What can we do to get better faster faster? And so we're GONNA be talking about all of that today. With one of the foremost experts on the planet and his new work is going to talk about and teach you how to become boundless. And he's just going to provide you with a ton of new things that you can have at your disposal throughout your entire life and before we do that. I WanNa give a quick shot. It's one of the things we're going to talk about today which is helping to regulate your sleep and today more than ever humans we're traveling where cloud hopping we are moving around at a pace that our ancestors didn't even know was possible via train plane automobile. All right we can move around and the crazy thing is that your body is always looking for its place in all of this. It's looking for its ability to sync up with the environment. We are hardwired to connect with their environment to circadian rhythm. Your Circadian Rhythm is matching up with the you know the Journal Nocturnal Patterns of the Earth every single day. And when you go when you jump into a different time zone the earth in like your body trying to locate each other to get sinked up again. That's determining win. Your hormones are getting secreted. Certain neural transmitters. Doing their job. Your mobility in your gut. All of that stuff is trying to sink back into a rhythm in so this is why why. I'm a big fan of helping your body to reset when you travel so today. A lot of people are leaning towards reaching reaching towards Melatonin to help them to sleep better. And there's an issue with this. Because according to a study published in the Journal of Biological Rhythms found that faulty timing timing or large doses of Melatonin can cause desensitization of your melatonin receptors. Basically your body. We'll continue to produce Melatonin and you can have melatonin supplements but your ability to actually use. It is going to go down and when that happens we can run into some serious problems problems and so we want to be very judicious and cautious about our use of Melatonin. Now I'm a big fan of Melatonin in spot cases or there is some evidence towards microdosing however in those spot cases especially when travelling changing timezones. That's a great time to utilize melatonin. Oh Tony because it helps your body to sink back up in the Melatonin isn't just about sleep. It's not a sensitive it's about regulating your circadian timing system and so for that I'm big Fan of sub lingual spray under your tongue. Hold that in their high quality earth grown nutrient source of Melatonin. That's something synthetic just because you could buy whatever. Convenience store or pharmacy does not mean that that it's high quality in also. The dose can be problematic. especially if you're taking pills like to find the right dose for you versus a couple of
"ben greenfield" Discussed on Ben Greenfield Fitness
"But it's a blend of tomorrow sack ride's not curcumin. But tomorrow sack rides which I think are better absorbed than cumin and act far more quickly and then it's also got an IRA vedic component called Hari Taki which has some real unique unique joint health benefits for joint function and then the final component that approach the Olympic enzymes and protease enzymes to break down some of the proteins in your bloodstream. mm-hmm after you've exercised the other cool thing about that is it can double up in a pinch as a digestive enzyme kion flex can because if you take it when you consume a protein-rich meal all it can help out with some of the breakdowns of those proteins in so it can be something that you consume before stake as well if you'd like so kion flexes the other component of my recovery protocol. Oh to call. And then the final the final part of me for recovery that would also fall into the performance. Bandwagon is take essential amino acids many people people use Collagen. Many people use Collagen peptides. I think essential amino acids when it comes to maintaining muscle building muscle or assisting with recovery. We are far superior way superior than branch chain Amino Acids which are essentially just a boatload of Lucina Ice Luccin dowling that can create some insulin dysregulation regulation and spike blood. Sugar on a big fan of getting all nine essential amino acids a trip to fan lysine methionine dowling loosing Isola- scene three inning and phenylalanine. Because you've got a lot of neurotransmitter precursors you can sleep better. You can take these even if you're in a fasted state without an insulin spike taking up to maintain muscle for a facet workout. How do I time them? I like to take ten to twenty grams pre or post workout because the research on amino acids show that when you work out with high blood levels of amino acids it is superior in the reason that I take them post workout. If I haven't had a meal prior to my big big hard work out of the day. I know my blood amino acids are not going to be that high. So we'll use something like Kiana minnows to get my blood levels of amino acids high before actually go and do my workout but again the amino acids or something I will time pre or post workout ten to twenty grams and the main things that I use those foreign only muscle recovery but muscle maintenance. They can also be used to reduce appetite cravings That can be used to support cognition because of the neurotransmitter effect. They're also very good for the immune fiction and be immune system system for guts probably. Why it's it's one of our top selling supplements at kion because it's like a shotgun for just about everything so essential amino acids are kind of like the third of my recovery wheel in addition to the fish oil and the flex? Okay so next we turn to to the last two sections supplement for my gut and my sleep so for the gut again. This this is where customization to your unique niks scenario is important. Because I personally if there's one area of my body I have tended have issues with due to everything from you. Know Parasite and yeast and fungus infections from me going all over the globe swimming in dirty water in braces and Thailand India and Vietnam for over a decade. I was doing ironman triathlons and all these dirty dirty bodies of water to just general travel. Airplane toilets airplane bathrooms or airport bathrooms. You know there's just basically a host of issues shoes I get exposed to that. Really do a number of my gut and me being raised on a traditional western Diet. Probably didn't help much either. So what I do for my gut. The first thing I do is I take colostrum every morning Colossians best on an empty stomach. When you take it you should break? Open the capsules or to open the capsules and let them sit in your mouth for for a little while because the enzymes in your mouth will help to make the colostrum or bioavailable and activate a lot of the growth factors in the classroom. That can get then. Go forward and help out your immune Dan System so colostrum is basically going to supply you with cytokines. which are the messengers to help your immune system cells communicate provide you with lactoferrin which assists with iron absorption which is really crucial for athletes? And it's also a very big part of your immune defense system and the healing process for your gut. It's got every Immunoglobulin Bula in it. I I di Di. Gm these are amazing for not only supporting the immune system but also helping the gut. Especially you've had things like leaky gut mold mycotoxin anything like that. IMMUNOGLOBULINS are fantastic for that. And then the final thing find colostrum are poly peptides which which are immune system regulators that encourage the growth of white blood cells. Right so you have a low white blood cell count. This can be helpful and they also help to defend against oxidative stress and support brain health. Colostrum has also been shown like for athletes before they do a workout in the hot weather to reduce gut permeability. That's caused by heavy. Exercise is and it can also improve functions of Gut permeability in in terms of keeping you from having leaky gut in anybody. Okay so I take callosum for my gut the way I do it is. I'll take a dose in the morning and if I'm traveling where I know my immune system is exposed even more salen? I take a dose in the morning and in the evening and colostrum is going to be best again on an empty stomach. Return to the scenario. Don't just pop all your pills with your morning smoothie time say getting the most bang for your buck out of what you do take now the next thing that I do is I take digestive enzymes. I take digestive enzymes with my meals. Not only a because as has an athlete as an exercise enthusiast. I'm eating in many cases. Like four thousand plus calories a day so I need that digestive enzyme support but in this returns to the aging component as you age your ability to be able to digest proteins and fats tends to decrease and so having that support is helpful. I just feel better as far as my the energy levels fatigue my poops digestive function overall. If I'm using digestive enzymes so what I use a stack from the company by optimize irs. I've had yeah these guys on my podcast before and it's very simple. They've won Digestive enzyme formula called Mass Ziming's. That's five different kinds of proteus. I'd take mass anytime consuming protein so anytime I've got a protein-rich meal weather. I'm traveling whether I'm at home. I pop four of these mass symes. Tell me digest proteins. Now if it's a fat rich meal such as my morning smoothie or my lunch with all the sardines and Avocados or anchovies mackerel or hairiness in her. You know some seeds and nuts all these different things that are fat based I also take different supplements from by optimize that was designed to breakdown. Fat and that one's called hold Capex K. A. P. X.. I also have an interview on on that one a link to the show notes Ben Greenfield tennis dot com slash supplements podcast but the CAPEX tax again. That's with fats so again when you have these supplements it's not like you're taking the supplements every single meal. But I'll take the mass of the protein-rich meal and then I'll take the CAPEX with the fat rich meal and if it's something like dinner which a lot of times are a lot of proteins and fats I'll just pop four mass symes than for me. It's two of the CAPEX. That's might dosage so it's four mass and to the Capex the other supplement from by optimizing that I have is called Gluten Guardian which is basically just an enzyme enzyme called pep. Today's pet today breaks down gluten. I don't eat a lot of gluten. I don't do a lot of wheat but when I do even if it's my wife. Slow fermented sour dough bread which admittedly Eh has a lot of the gluten deactivated because that's the fermentation process. Does that breaks down a lot of the gluten and the digestive issues such as fighting acids and trips and those tend to go away. Way If you're firm ending a grain however I go out to eat I go to steakhouses I got business meetings and a lot of times at breadbasket comes out and I'm I'm a human being. I WANNA I wanNA grab that salted butter that they bring out with a sour dough bread or pretzels. Six at the steakhouse and punish a little bit of that. I sometimes want to have like gotTa rap if I'm traveling filled with all sorts of goodness but another rap has gluten in it very simple. I pop four the gluten guardian anytime that I am consuming in gluten and that helps out with the with the gluten component. Okay and again. That's not something you use all the time that's up on my pull out one or two times a week when which would be the time the amount of time that I've actually have gluten okay and then the The the last few things do for my gut is the other thing that I take at least once per day was designed to help to heal the gut from the ravages of glyphosate. Now even though I eat organic there's a lot of glyphosate contamination and Tom Nation in many foods not only organic produce can be contaminated with glyphosate restaurant a lot of times. I don't know. And so there is is this supplement called Ion biomet used to be called restore and they changed their name recently to ion I o n was developed by my friend. Dr Zack Bush. A ton of different research exists on this supplements basically lignite. Lignite acts kind of like colostrum to strengthen the tight junctions and your gut lining but it specifically was designed to help to protect your gut against glyphosate especially if you're in the US and concern about the amount of glyphosate used on the crops over here. There's is when my kids use. Also I take a shot of this at least once a day and it's best timed before meal especially before a meal for what you're concerned about glyphosate that exposure they have little travel versions to liquid and they also have like big old at home bottles that you can keep in your fridge. I use that as well for the gut. The last asked a couple of things I do for the gut would be take a probiotic if I am traveling because I don't eat a lot of fermented foods or at least not as many fermented foods when I travels do at home home. Oh Miami so and Tampa Bay and Natto and Kimchi and Sauerkraut and you know Some homemade yogurt and wonderful forms of probiotics. But when I'm traveling Avelino have as many probiotics are great for the immune system The specific probiotic that I use pomegranate extract in it which is wonderful for helping your gut microbes to produce something something called Euro. Listen a which is a longevity enhancing compound and it also has the L. Root Awry R. E. U. T. R..

What is a Fasting Mimicking Diet and How to Do It
"Basis. Four times a year, you restrict the normal amount of calories that you would eat to forty percent of what you normally eat. So maybe you're doing maybe you're just dropping one meal or for every meal that y- you're eating a little bit less. And you do this for five days on a quarterly basis. I started doing that last year. And I I just have like this Stu that I make with split mung beans and BAAs Matia rice. And it's called it's called Kittery. It's an Indian ayurvedic cleansing, Stu. Dr Longos company. L Neutra sends out these kits called prolonged kits that are all done for you. But I just wanted to make make my own stew. That's easy for me. Put a little coconut yogurt on it. And that's just breakfast lunch and dinner for me for five days in a row. It's almost like a like a seasonal cleaning. So you do that four times a year? And the only other thing that I do is one or two times a month. I try to go from Saturday dinner to Sunday dinner without eating so it's almost a twenty four hour fast. And with those three things twelve six hundred and fast the quarterly five day like modified fast in the twenty four hour fast wanted you times a month.
The good and bad of rapamycin
"Current obsession of the anti-ageing industry is rapamycin in the sixties group of Canadian researchers from Gil university set sail for Easter Island, especially inhabited speck of land two thousand miles off the coast of Chile the team collected hundreds of plant samples thousands of animal specimens and blood and saliva from the nine hundred forty nine residents of the island, but what they found buried in the dirt of Easter Island turned out to be the biggest fine of all us soil based bacteria that mystified scientists for the next fifty years, but is now known to create a special chemical known as rapamycin named after Easter island's native name Rapa Nui a growing body of research now shows that rapamycin can actually extend not just the average lifespan of mice as many drugs have already been shown to do. But also the maximum life span by up to thirty percent. But as with metformin, there's a dark side. To rapamycin part of the way it works by inhibiting excess activation of immune cells via pathway called 'em tour and up regulation of cellular cleanup mechanisms called a tough Aji. Now in addition of the tour pathway activated autocracy can indeed slow ageing and control issues like neurological diseases and genetic disorders, but as an immune system suppressor rapamycin his also able to increase risk of infectious diseases, diabetes and produce side effects, like impaired, wound healing, long talk city, an increased risk of cancer. But in the same way that there are natural compounds that can be used as alternative cement Forman. They're also natural compounds mimic rapamycin is able to do for health and longevity. One example is spurting sperm has been shown to induce similar benefits as rapamycin with no known side effects and also promotes longevity in yeast worms and mice wall sperm. Yes. Sperm is the most concentrated form of sperm being and guys stop in your wives. It also exists in high concentrations in foods, like wheat germ. Dark leafy greens, mushrooms, and smelly firm it to cheeses and of swallowing sperm or eating, stinky cheese. Just isn't your thing. Then you can simply also tap into the benefits of rapamycin by adopting a habit of intermittent fasting or regular periods of mild Cala restriction.

Pros And Cons Of Fasting Before A Workout
"So when they're given a little bit of carbohydrates before workout the little bit of carbohydrate before the workout. And then they go out, and they do the workout and then they fast after workout. They actually burn more fat in men or the opposite men. They don't eat before the workout, and then they eat following the workout. We tend to see a little bit of a difference in the sex response to this. Now, you need to realize this was done in like lean trained individuals. So I would say again a caveat for for a really lean trained female would be that you. May actually want to again, eat something small before a workout. If you fall into that category of lean active female because I have seen some hormonal issues arise, and the cool thing is if you do that. But then you fast after the workout you still see a really good increase in fat oxidation. Some of the studies have been done men versus women are really fascinating. And then finally it takes time. I've talked about this on my podcast before and marxists. In refers to this is being a fat-burning machine or others who referred is becoming fat adapted or Kito adapted. But the fact is that for you to feel really good doing facet exercise sessions and for me to do things like go and do an ironman triathlon. On Kito sus takes about one and a half to two years to actually build adequate might Okon drill density. Fat-burning officiency beta oxidation, it cetera to really start to feel like a champ and be able to perform at the drop of a hat
Everything You Need to Know About Bonking
"Case a few cautions here. One would be bonking. And I already alluded to this. Of course, you can't if you're working for a long period of time completely run out of liver glycogen, and muscle glycogen, and very few people, for example, and this crowd. I'm speaking to now are like professional, ironman, triathletes or professional athlete sometimes election front of pro teams and stuff and I have to warn warn guys. Don't overdo this. You're gonna run out of glycogen. But I find in many cases in the general population who is who's well-fed overly active, a drop in blood levels of amino acids, and the subsequent central nervous system. Fatigue that occurs. When that happens is the number one reason that a ball happens. And so if you find yourself super hungry during a workout and you're like, man, I ate carbs last night. I'm not to caloric depleted them in this fast, and workout and I'm super duper lightheaded. In sluggish you may want to look into whether or not that's just trip to fan crossing the blood brain barrier and making you excessively sleepy in which case, you can use amino acids, actually stave that off. So that's one thing that you can do. But then if you're very active. Want to be aware that you're carbohydrate needs and the importance of that carbohydrate refund in the evening, if you're doing a lot of these facet sessions becomes very important
What does a coffee enema do?
"I promise you that. I would also finish up here with desert so to speak this whole idea of coffee Animas, and I have a whole article on coffee enema, but I get a lot of people ask me about this. I'm going to give you the one. Oh, one in coffee Animas. No, put plenty of links in the show notes for the equipment, you need an article, I wrote on everything, but the idea behind Coffey animus is they have this amazing capacity. To enhance gut parasol SIS gallbladder bile release liberty toxication and their superior to plain water Animas because they have so many more benefits. You've got theobromine the filling PO medic acid caffeine all of these things in coffee travel through the capillary bed of your rectum into your portal vein, and that leads directly to your liver, and when they do that, they dilate blood vessels. They open up the bile ducts, they allow the liver to release bile. And when that happens, it also stimulates an enzyme system in the liver. That increases glutathione your master antioxidant by six hundred to seven hundred percent that glutathione can react with free radicals in the bloodstream, it can render them inert it can enhance both phase one and face to liberty toxication pathways and then face three. These neutralize substance. Get dissolved in the bile released through the bile flow from the liver in the gallbladder pass out through intestinal track. You poop them out that simple. So so here is the one. One on the coffee. I do this once a week on typically on Wednesday mornings a you need a coffee enema kit. Don't get plastic. Get medical grade silicone stainless steel, there's a version Amazon, you can get pulling to the show notes for portability. There's also a special like a what do you call? It glide Amin's glide suppository is like a coffee enema suppository when I'm traveling. I don't carry the Bill buck and everything, but I do with glider, which give me a lot of these same benefits in suppository form. They don't hold a candle to the to the full on coffee enema, but they can do the trick. So you've got your stainless steel bucket. You've got a little clamp that attached to that. With the two that's going to go up your butt. And of course, you want. I shouldn't have to tell this organic coffee. Definitely don't shove pesticides herbicides up your backside.
What Should I Eat?
"Another question that I get of course, is how do you go Kito when you're eating a vegetarian or vegan or plant based diet? So first of all one recommendation is that if you wanna go Kito, and you wanna eat primarily plants. I would highly encourage you to consider branching out if you really want optimize the diet, and to include some things that would not be considered purely plant-based eggs, particularly if you eat eggs, you're gonna get long chain on mega three fatty acids. You're gonna get animal protein, you're gonna get choline which is very important because your liver needs that to be able to metabolize a high intake of fats without running the risk of developing fatty liver disease or compromising overall liver function of vitamin b twelve edge are going to give you a really decent amount of that five of them give you over one hundred percent of the RDA for vitamin b twelve and then retinal to if you can. Get eggs use them and eat them whole the yolks eat the whites everything I realized that might be kind of a cop out for for vegan vegetarian or plant based diet. But if you can do it the next would be that. If you don't have an issue with dairy tried include that in your diet, if you're eating plant based I for ethical reasons, you know, of course, as you know, animals are not gonna die. There are ways that you can harvest dairy sustainably, and you know, I if if you look at a lot of successful vegetarian cultures like India, for example, dairy plays a pretty major role in their diet, yogurts cheeses and milks creams, and it's very possible to fill in a lot of the protein and the nutrient gaps if you do include dairy and healthy dairy like yoga and key for an hard age cheeses, like pet Carino and Gouda and parmigiano in your diet that can be very useful. So if you can try to get. Good natural sources of dairy try to get eggs, especially if you wanna go with a high fat diet eating as a plant based eater. But I understand that many folks reading plant based diet wanna stay strictly vegan, Arkansas, the eggs dairy. So a few of the recommendations that I can give you one would be to take niacin and thiamine take niacin and thiamine because those are also very hard to obtain you'll tend to fly through those a lot more quickly. If you're eating a high fat plant based diet, so you can get niacin from from for example, sunflower seeds. You can get it in supplemental form, you can get it from peanuts. I'm not a huge fan of those as a source for thiamine. You can also get them from sunflower seeds and get him from legume. So if you don't want to many of those food groups, you could just take niacin thiamine as a supplemental source in addition to some of the other supplements, I recommended in general, but if you wanna go high fat as a vegan I would take nine. In thiamine for sure. Another one that I would include is very high amount of L Joe oil because that will get you EPA HI. It's not just L G L. Joel also get a lot of your omega three fatty acids, if if you eat those as

"Twitter handle, Ben Ben Greenfield's. Yeah.

It's a privately held company in Miami called longevity Ron kind of longevity that name that is on Chevron and stuff. Yeah. I like anybody who makes up works. Anyways. What they do is the use stem cells use Mezin, camel stem cells, he's so-called MS's and up until this point. There's been a lot of back and forth about whether these things actually work. So technically MS's are supposed to be involved with regulating, and reducing inflammation, and repairing particularly blood vessels. But they've also got some some good research on them for knee injuries. To all sort of colitis. So they're like little miniature drug delivery factories in a way. That's why a lot of people get these stem, cell injections to repair and regenerate tissue. But there's this whole idea of anti aging, right? Like people saying I want to get like an IV infusion of stem cells as an anti-aging protocol. And whereas a lot of those things I just mentioned do have some evidence behind them for working. There has not yet been up till this point any clinical trials to see stem cells can actually help to, you know, reverse aging so to speak so longevity on actually conducted a trial and a link to it in the show notes.

Is GHB Safe?
"For those. You haven't heard of GHB gamma hydroxy botanic acid originally known as the date rape drug. Be put slip it into drinks to aid with sexual assault. And I in no way endorse anything like that. When it comes to the use of GHB. However, there are there are interesting things about this molecule that. I think make it compelling, and when I go to parties these days where I'm in in Vegas with some my friends at cetera. Many of them are now a shoeing alcohol in favor of you know, marijuana edibles marijuana. Vape pens, small microdosing LSD or suicide Simon. Some cases larger doses. And then also do GHB which will typically have them like a little, you know, like like a little flask. Or, you know, I know some people carry it around like five hour energy bottles things that look like it's not what it is. And that's that's GHB even bodybuilders speak of mass gains that it promotes increase production of growth hormone, human, growth hormone and promote sounder sleep. And it actually is one of the few molecules I've ever been able to find that has been proven to increase deep sleep cycles, dramatically and recovery and growth hormone dramatically during sleep when used in the proper amounts and used correctly without any deleterious side effects. The problem is that it can be very difficult to dose, and it causes this coma like sleep the when mixed with alcohol enhances the depressant effective in more. And so it can quickly lead to unconsciousness and even death. You know, especially if you've vomited or something like that while you're in the coma. And that's one of the reasons that of course, it was used as a date rape drug as well. Because if you don't dose properly, I mean, your heart rate will slow your breath rate will slow your body temperature will decrease in get nausea, and you get coma, and you can't even get death. So, you know, this also though in lighter amounts is something that is used as a party drug. You know, one of one of the the the street names for it is liquid ecstasy liquidity. And so you know, it actually can be one of those things that kind of kind of picks you up a little bit. If you use it in in a little bit more of a party or kind of even like a sex scenario. It's us a lot of times to enhance as well, but in higher amounts definitely something that would be used for sleep. So this is one of those compounds of very similar to some other compounds out there, you know, like CBD, for example, you know, very effective in the treatment of narcolepsy or anxiety or stress and smaller amounts, but then larger amounts can improve sleep structure and really give you a lot of growth hormone release in recovery while you're asleep, and it. Simulates the the brain neurotransmitter gamma immuno be acids. So anybody who's taken like a P H Gabba, which is far easier to get you can buy ph GATT on Amazon, you can kind of get a little bit of a feel for what had feel like to use GHB. If you were to do something like take PH Gabba and have a glass

Hey, folks is Ben greenfield, and as you know, doubt, know if you've been paying attention to my anti-aging in my longevity writings of late, one of the things I've really talked about is this idea of the blue zones in these areas where people live a disproportionately long period of time. One thing that I've talked about in some of the articles that have been writing of late has been this idea that they know why it is they're getting out of bed in the morning, whether it's the believe it's called the the pure davita that the Sardinians wake up with that reason for life or the Iki guy, the Japanese call it this reason that you actually get up in the morning, what your purpose in life is having that purpose. Having that drive having that reason that you actually live appears to be not only incredibly portent for anti-aging and for longevity, but also for happiness. And for meaning in life.
