Dietary Options for Preventing a Heart Attack High Fiber
"Hello listeners, this menopause Taylor bringing you the state of Minnesota and the world today, and as you know, I talked to you about all things having to do with menopause, and one of the most important things is heart attacks. So I've been giving you podcast on nothing but heart attacks for quite a while. So we're kind of in the middle of the unit and we're in the part of the unit where I give you all the management options for preventing heart attack, and so this talk today is on your dietary options for preventing heart attack in the category just one category of dietary options high fiber. Now you see. The. Reason. This is important is because you've heard about fiber over and over again, you actually probably hear low fat high fiber all the time but. Even though you hear about that most people still do all the wrong things when they attempt to eat a low fat high fiber diet, and that is because you have very little guidance you know the food industry does everything possible to deceive you. And there isn't just any good health education out there to empower you with the knowledge you need. So what I do in my podcast, my youtube videos and all my educational resources. Is I'll get down to specifics I want you to know all the INS and outs of making dietary choices that will meet your goals. So let's talk about fiber. Now. If you're sitting there thinking, you already know all about fiber I will be happy to wade your bed with you. You're probably going to be shocked out of your Gourd with what you learn today. So listen to this podcast even if you think you know everything. Now. Why Back Win I gave you a great big long list of risk factors for heart attack and. These risk factors are so important and focusing on them is critical and a lot of the risk factors have to do with lowering the fat in your Diet. But this podcast is about lowering. Your risk for a heart attack by raising the fiber in your diet, and there isn't a specific respect or specifically devoted to fiber in the list of risk factors. For prevent for a heart attack but it actually is in quoted in one of the risk factors, but it's hidden. The risk factor that has to do with fiber most importantly is diabetes but the others all. have to the had to a fiber actually. The ones that have to a too. So High Lousy, ldl your low a healthy HDL, your total cholesterol, hdl ratio, high triglycerides, high home, assisting, and diabetes. They all have something to do with fiber and the key. Is that you're for all of these factors by increasing the fiber in your. Diet. So let's just delve into fiber and you know I always started beginning. So I'm going to start with the definition of fiber. Fiber is also as bulk or roughage. By definition fiber. Is the structural part of a plant. You know here's an analogy. Animals have a skeleton. The skeleton is what enables an animal to stand upright. Well Beiber is the skeleton of a planet. So fiber is what enables a plan to GROW UPRIGHT Now. When you eat me. Do you eat skeleton. NOPE but when you eat a plant you do. And that's a good thing because the fiber office offers huge benefits, your body can't digest skeleton of an animal and it can't digest the fiber of a plan either. But the fact that you can't digest fiber is the very reason it so been official one of the biggest problems with fiber is that it's fraught with all these misconceptions. Most people tend to think of it as being important for purposes of making your bowel movements rejoinder. So fiber is marketing mostly to elderly people. that. Alone makes young people think they don't need fiber, but everyone needs fiber and most people need a lot more fiber than they get. So I'll teach you what you need to know about fiber. The very first benefit. Of Fiber is that it makes you feel full. Well if you feel full, that's you're getting eat a lot less and that's why some people think of fiber as bulk it is bulk. The critical feature of fiber is that it must be whole grain. Whole Grain meads at the five burr around the entire starch grain. You'll to form a kernel. It's not cracked crushed or adulterated. Anyway. The colonel is tough. It's like a kernel of popcorn before you puppet. Okay Ah. Cornel. Popcorn is hard if we a- Colonel Popcorn, will you just it know it'll go through your entire digestive tract whole it's the whole kernel, the whole brain. So the KEA fiber is to always eat the whole great, and that's because the second benefit of fiber comes from the whole grain. Now, the problem. Is that the food industry has found every possible way to fool you they write whole grain, all sorts of foods that do not contain whole grain. In. Fact, there are criteria for what the food industry is allowed to label whole grain and would you believe that not one of them requires that the grade behold? that. Foods that this whole grades as the second or third ingredient knit hat as little as one percent. All right. So when you're buying foods always look at the ingredients it the very very first ingredient is not specifically whole grain quotes old rain then it is not whole brain. and. That brings us to the third benefit of fiber. If it is whole grain. It speeds up the transit time of food traveling through your digestive. Trim. Remember in the last podcast taught you about transit time transit time is the time it takes food to go from your mouth to your toilet. The. Faster. The transit time the more back food helps prevent heart attack. And more fiber you eat the fest your transit time. That's why companies market fiber old folks to keep the regular make sense doesn't it? For. The fourth? Benefit. Of. Fiber. You already know that you don't digest or absorb fiber, but you do digest and absorb all the other kinds of nutrients you eat and the place where you absorb everything is your small intestine. So. What happens is that farmer travels to your small intestine quickly but instead state near to get absorbed like everything else it keeps traveling onto your margin tested and what's it reaches your large intestine there are. Other nutrients around. But. There are blocks of back tiered. Your large intestine contains trillions of them and win the fiber arrives at your large intestine, the bacteria. A day. Now that sound like a bad thing but it is. It's a very good thing. Fiber is what you're good. Gut Bacteria and love, and it's what you're bad. Gut Bacteria hate. So the fiber makes the good bacteria proliferate and the bad bacteria disappear and the end result is that you get gas. Now everybody hates gets but. Gas Is your friend gas is very healthy. You Want Gas I. Think about it. What kinds of foods give you. The healthiest ones. For vegetables, beans, nuts, and seeds they all you gas. I often say the better, your diet, the more you fart. My friends just shake their heads enrolled, roll their eyes when I think things like that but it's the truth. UNHEALTHY, your your diet, the more you far. Okay, here's the fifth benefit of fiber. It delays the absorption of fat. Now, don't make the mistake of confusing absorption time of nutrients in your bloodstream with the transit time of food through your digestive track. The two are completely different things. You want snow absorption of nutrients into your bloodstream so that your liver doesn't get bombarded with too much all at one time. You especially once snow absorption of fat, which is very hard on your never. But you want fast transit of food through your digestive tract so that it doesn't have time to leave behind waste products. You see I like to think of it. As the difference between A. Waste Product Spelled W. A. S. T.. And a waste product spelled W. A. S. t. e.. Fact is W. A.. S. T. prime it ends up around your waist. Fiber is a waste W. A. S. T.. It isn't absorbed ended excellence your body. Or here's another way to think of it. It's fat or Fart. You can eat foods that turn into fat or you can eat foods that turn into farts. That is bad. Parts are good. Joan ask me how I come with these. My mind works in very strange ways, and if that helps you learn than I have each. And now for the sixth benefit of fiber. Previously, I've taught you how to read a nutrition label and way back. In of my early videos, I. Actually. Did a color coded nutrition label, and if you go to my youtube channel that was video number, one, hundred eighteen and you really ought to look at it because it's a really easy way to learn how to read nutrition labels. And if you look at it interesting label, you'll see a carbohydrate section. and. When you look at the carbohydrates section, you'll see that there are two components to carbohydrates. There's fiber and their sugar. Fiber is good and sugar is back. So you want a lot of fiber and only a little sugar. And the key is to realize that you want the fiber to balance a sugar. So let's go back to basics. Think about fresh. Fruit. Fresh fruit, sweet it succulent. And that sweetness is sugar. So why is good for you? Having a sugar is back for you why is fruit good for you? Because of the fiber cement fiber balances to sugar. That's the BIG TICKET ITEM RIGHT THERE Naturally occurring sugars that are balanced by naturally occurring for fiber do not have the harmful effects than other sugars half. So whenever you look at a nutrition label, you want to be a tim to the ratio. Between the fiber and the sugar. Previous lab referred to this as the five to one room. And the five to one rule is where you look at the number of grams of total carbohydrates on the nutrition label? And then you look at the number of grams of fiber. And what you do divide the total carbohydrate. By the fiber. If the number is five or less by it. If the number is more than five. Put it back on the ship. So if you have a total carbohydrate of twenty and your fiber is only two that's ten. Put it back on the shell. But if you have a total carbohydrate of twenty and the fiber is five. That's four. Twenty five is four by that one. Remember your total carbohydrate consists of only two things, fiber and sugar, which means that all the carbohydrates that are not fiber are sugar. Okay. So the goal is for the fiber to dominate the grams of carbohydrate. You want a high fiber high number for fiber and you want to low number four, the sugar. If the fiber balances the sugar in a five to one ratio the food will decrease your risk of a heart attack. If the number you get when you divide the total carbohydrates by fiber is greater than five, the food will not decrease your risk of heart attack. See I'd like to give you these useful little tips that you can use just anywhere. Head now this into a specific type of vitamin of item. There are so many trends and fads that lead you astray and I like to address them when we are on a topic or they're appropriate. I'm one of the fads that is rampant. These days is juicy. There's this craze over juice. There's all the people selling juice. Who would have you believe that juicing is helping me and they tell you that you get all the nutrients you need when you juice and unfortunately you probably believe them. So now there are all sorts of juicing restaurants, juice bars, juice products, juice juice add there's freshly squeezed juice everybody's using. Well I'm sorry to have to break the news, but juicing destroys all the benefits of the original fruit or vegetable. Why because when you go back to the? Total carbohydrate. Divided by By fiber fiber is going to be zero. So if your total carbohydrate is thirty and your fiber zero, it means that all thirty rams are sugar you totally discard all the fiber juice. You removed the part that balances the sugar and you're left with nothing but sugar. Believe it or not. There is more sugar in juice than there is in a soft drink. One hundred percent fruit juice contains one point, eight grams of fructose per ounce. Soda, up contains one point, seven grams of Tokes for. And he doesn't matter if a fruit was organic or homegrown or all those things that everyone uses to justify. Fruit is different. What should turn any fruit into juice? You have erased all the fiber and all the benefits. So if you drink any kind of juice considerate. Desert. It's not nutritious. The vitamins juice do not outweigh the sugar content. Now. Closer related to juicy. What about smoothies? That's the other craze Throw some fruit into a blender at some ice or yogurt and blend away way at once again, I hate to be the one to tell you but smoothies destroy the fiber to now not completely. But to a certain degree toe degree that makes it important for you to know that you have not. You have not same benefit as if you'd eaten the fruit whole, the problem is that the shearing action of the blender blades. Destroys the fiber it doesn't make disappear, but it destroys the fact that it's fiber stores the skeleton, the sugar of the fiber is absorbed as if there were never any fiber at all. So like juicing smoothies constitute, dessert? So I say just keep it simple. Just eat the whole fruit. It's a lot like whole. Great. When you have ness with either one, you forfeit the benefits. And Lost podcast. I gave you the best and worst diets for revenue heart attack with regard to fat and I'm going to do the same thing right now with regard to fiber, and again, I'm going to tell you the worst diets verse. The. Absolute. Worst kind of Diet for preventing a heart attack with regard to fiber is any diet limits your fiber So once gate, any diet that involves eating a lot of animal products is absolutely awful for preventing a heart attack. These including Atkins Diet and the Kito died. The best diets many a heart attack are those that involve eating a bunch of fiber in other words, plants. So those diets include the Orange Diet, the low glycemic index diet and South Beach Diet. You see how it all comes back to the same old thing again at a game. So. Basically, what you've learned here is that fibers your friend. It can significantly reduce your risk of heart attack and the problem is that almost everything you hear about fiber is wrong. And I. Hope you can see how logical the truth is. I actually you're feeling a bit duped by the Food Industry and society right now. But now that you know how beneficial fiber is, you can make a huge difference in your risk for heart attack. So, here's a summary of the ways in which fiber lowers your risk of heart attack. It makes you feel full faster. Number two. The whole rain does not digested. Number three speeds up the transit time of food traveling through your intestines. Number four, it increases the beneficial bacteria in your gut. Number, five, it delays the absorption of fat and number six balances, the sugar and fruits and vegetables. So. Do you see how? We each of these podcasts. I just build WanNa step at a time and I teach you everything you need to know to really understand. How to use this information Are you saying that I don't say this is good for you and this is bad for you. D see how everything makes sense and. that. When you learn in this manner, not only learning in an an illogical order to where one thing connects to the neck to one. The first one thing connects to the next next thing I teach you. You connect all those dots. How logical everything is What I find problematic is we live in a day and age where people don't get an education all they get a sound bite to get a sound bite about this and a sound about that. You never stopped to think about how logical anything is and you never really connect the dots on various things and you're left with very little or no knowledge and many times as in the case juicing you do everything wrong because you never learn why what you heard as a soundbite was totally illogical and will never serve your needs well. So I try to make sure everything makes perfect. Perfect Sense. I love finding ways to make sure things make sense. And what you? Learn the truth. You see the truth always make sense. I don't have an angle or product or anything on pushing on you just want you to know the facts what you do with them is entirely up to you. I. Just want you to have an adequate education so that you're not gonNA fall prey to fads and scams and things that are going on all around you all the time and everybody else is doing them and that makes you think well, Gosh, maybe I should do it too i. want you understand the logic and when you start seeing how lot of what people are doing these days does make any sense at all.

Apple Watch Which One Should You Buy?
"Sponsored by Dashing Apple Watch is different. There's no air version or pro version no mini we know Max not really. You don't Spec one based on storage size or memory size number of cameras or number. Of course there is simply to display sizes small and large and and a variety of different materials from aluminum to ceramic steel titanium. And if an Apple Watch series five is just too much for you. There's an apple. Watch series three to get you. We started so you choose your size you choose your material and then you're often pairing with your bands right well. Yeah but there's still a lot to unpack even even those simple sounding choices so whether you're still waiting to pick up your first or next Apple Watch or you've just gotten a new one. You're wondering if you should exchange it for a slightly different model. So let's just break it all down I ritchie and this is vector as usual. I'm only skimming the details here so far. Deeper dives check out my in-depth reviews links in the description. But here's your cheese. If you just want an apple watch you can use to do all the Apple Watch things including health and fitness music and communications home kitten apple pay and you want a little bit extra for the same price. Get the apple. Watch Nike Plus Series Five starting at three ninety nine. If you want all of those those things but really don't want the extra Nike plus things then get the standard aluminum applewhite series five starting at the same three nine. If that's simply too much money to pay and you can make do with a slightly smaller screen and without fall detection and then get the Apple Watch series three starting at one thousand nine if durability really matters to you and when you want something stronger than aluminum ion exchange glass then get the stainless steel and Sapphire Apple. Watch series five starting at six ninety nine if you're really intimate cereals and and you want the very latest with the same your ability to steal but lighter then you want the titanium and Sapphire Apple wife series five starting at seven ninety nine. If you're into extra your Fancy Watch you watch watches and you like your materials even higher end and with the cleanest of clean looks. Then you want the ceramic and Sapphire applewhite series five starting at twelve ninety nine or if you're into luxury leather and it's the strap and the exclusive matching faces that matter to you the most then you want the steel and Sapphire Apple Watch series five with one of several bands starting at twelve forty nine. Now let's talk sizes the Apple Watch series five comes in forty and forty four millimeters and the Apple Watch series three comes in thirty eight and forty two millimeters. The cases themselves are similar sizes but the series five has smaller vessels to make room for the bigger screen. Now the differences might not sound like very much but four millimeters out of forty millimeters is one tenth of the apple watches dimensions the rounded. Tangere shape of the Apple Watch also makes it harder to compare directly with your average round watch but in the traditional watch world. Neither of the apple watches. We considered overly white or high not Schwarzenegger style. At least there's no oh difference when it comes to the thickness of the two sizes a series three or series five from screen down to heart rate sensor. They're all the same thickness. There is still some gender bias when it comes to apple's apple's bands unfortunately some of them including the modern buckle an air mess double tour are only available for the smaller case size others including the leather loop and on the air mass deployment are only available in the bigger case. Is You can still use any band with any case but the smaller ones will have some of the groove empty on the bigger cases and the bigger the ones will stick out slightly on the smaller cases. Not a deal breaker for everyone but definitely something. Everyone should consider all this to say if you have tiny risks you'll probably prefer the smaller watch giant wrist. The bigger watch in between you can consider both sizes depending on whether you prefer a smaller lighter watch or a slightly heavier one with a bigger screen gene. That's why apple has two sizes after all and why both sizes come with otherwise identical features. There are a few different ways to think about the different Apple Watch. Materials first first and foremost is price like I said at the beginning. The aluminum in ion exchange glass starts at one thousand nine for this series three and three ninety nine for this series five you could also get this series series five and stainless steel and Sapphire Crystal for six ninety nine titanium for seven ninety nine or ceramic for twelve ninety. Nine which is yeah quite the range but you can totally only pay for the look you want. You can also think about weight. Some people really like light watches they can barely feel others like really heavy watches. They can totally feel it's it's a personal preference. The absolute lightest is the aluminum series. Three which starts at around Twenty six point seven grams for the thirty millimeter then the aluminum series five at thirty eight point eight grams for people who want heavier watches. The heaviest you can get is a stainless steel series five which shoots up to forty point six grams in between the ceramic drops. It's back down to thirty nine. Point seven grams titanium to thirty five point one grams. Lastly there's durability the aluminum ion exchange apple watches which include the Nike Aversions are the softest both the cases and the screen scratch more easily than any other model. Of course they cost at least as well so even if you don't take the most care of them you you can replace them once or twice for the price of a single more expensive material. The ceramic versions have Sapphire Crystal screens. So they don't scratch some people worry about them. Falling shattering shattering but apple has done a lot to mitigate against that the absolute toughest versions are the stainless steel and titanium especially with the black diamond like carbon DLC coatings those are the most durable including the Sapphire crystal screens. I had a black steel series zero since launch and every time I thought it was scratched it turned out simply taken a chunk. GotTa something else instead so pick. What's important to you? Price weight durability whatever combination of those factors matters the most to you again. It's all the same hardware where features including digital crown and heart rate monitor and they all run the same watch. Os software including health and fitness and notifications and communications. So they all give you the the same killer feature convenience which also happens to be dash lanes killer feature.

How to Pick a Milk When Your Baby Turns 1
"And parents will say well. I'm looking for alternative to cow's milk and the relic almond milk. Which in theory sounds great. Except if you look at the protein contents of all the milk there's almost nothing in there. It's not the same as feeding her baby cows milk. Hey there i'm katie. Ferraro registered dietitian college nutritional professor and mama. Seven specializing in baby led weaning. Here on the baby led weaning. Made easy podcast. I help us to repel all of the noise and nonsense about feeding leaving you with the competence and knowledge. You need to give your baby a safe. Start to solid. Foods using baby led weaning. Hey guys welcome back talking today about milk and exactly. How do you pick a milk when your baby turns one. 'cause you might have heard. The things changed a little bit at around the first year. Mark in that babies no longer need to be drinking formula. And if you're breastfeeding which is great. You do that as long as you and baby are comfortable but it's definitely time to transition to cow's milk in addition to that so how do you make that change. That's what we're talking about in today's episode. Now before we get started. I always like to begin. The episodes with a baby led weaning tip of the day and this tip today is do not replace formula or breastmilk with fluid. Cow's milk until the baby turns one but it is totally fine to include. Cow's milk protein foods like yogurt and cheese and even milk uses an ingredient in different recipes. That you might be making prior to that and say. I was really confused by that as a new mom was like wait a minute. I know you don't give cow's milk to babies till their one but you need to introduce cow's milk as a protein. How do you feed cow's milk if you're not supposed to be feeding cow's milk so if you're confused about any of the cow's milk stuff i want you to go back and listen to a really early episode in the podcast was episode thirteen. It's called milk protein. How to introduce your baby to this potentially allergenic food. It will talk you through how you can do the cow's milk protein before your baby should be drinking fluid cow's milk but what we're talking about today something i don't normally talk about. I generally stop talking about infant nutrition when your baby turns twelve months but it worked with a lot of families who are like. Hey i did your hundred first foods program. I baby tried all the allergenic foods were like jamming on led weaning. I just wanna know what to look out for when baby turns one so we're going to be focusing on that today. If you guys are interested in learning more about that hundred first foods approach to starting solids with baby led weaning. I've got a free workshop. Called baby led weaning for beginners. It's all about how to get your baby to eat one hundred different foods before turning one without you having to spoon feed pure as or by pouches. You can sign up for this week's workshop times by going to the show notes for this episode. Bmw podcast dot com forward slash. Seventy-nine everyone on that free workshop gets a copy of my one hundred first foods list and you can get your baby well on his or her way trying hundred different foods. Before turning one with the info you learn on that workshop but what about what your baby drinks. That's what we're focusing on today now. A couple of quick tips about milk when it comes to transitioning to cow's milk i recommend making the change at round the twelve month. Mark all of the major health bodies. Say it's totally fine to move to cow's milk at a brown one year of age. I tend not to do it like right on the first birthday. There's a lot of stuff going on but in the weeks. Oh following the first birthday. I will make that transition to cow's milk and what we look to feed is whole milk or full-fat. Sometimes you hear a called vitamin d. Cow's milk and vitamin d milk. It's a little bit of a misnomer because in the united states at least by law all fluid. Cow's milk has to be fortified with the same amount of vitamin d. So there's no more vitamin d in whole milk than you would find in reduced fat or low fat milk but the key with the different fat contents is we don't serve reduced or low fat or nonfat milk products till babies until they're at least two. They need the fat for. They're still developing brains. So you look for whole milk so not reduced fat. Not low fat not nonfat. We make that switch to cow's milk so if your baby is allergic to cow's milk protein newly diagnosed. Cow's milk protein. Allergy of course would do to avoid that but as long as your baby is not allergic to cow's milk. There's no reason why you can't feed it sometimes. Parents are asking lots of questions about different. Cow's milk alternatives again. If there's not allergy there's no reason to avoid cow's milk when you do feed cow's milk you wanted to whole milk. Cow's milk now. One area where i see a lot of parents making mistakes is that they tend to overfeed milk and i know this happened in my own family. I have a sister-in-law. Who said you know. I went in for the check up at fifteen months. My daughter had really gained a lot of weight in berkeley. I thought she was a good eater but turns out when we did a little bit more of a deep dive. She was drinking like between thirty six. And forty eight ounces of milk a day that a twelve ounce now gene sippy cups that they were filling up three and four times a day and when we realized i said to my sister-in-law. Oh my gosh. That's literally twice as much as she should be drinking. My sister-in-law said. But you know i thought milk was a healthy. Food was fine for kids to have as much as they want. And it's just a reminder that too much of a good thing is not a good thing milk while it is a nutrient dense source of calories and protein vitamin a vitamin d calcium at cetera. It's not the perfect food and we cannot feed it freely in the sense that babies toddlers drink too much of it and when i see families struggling with feeding and toddler hood you know. There's some degree of picky eating that sets in the first year of life. But but i'll see declines in intake and parents alike. Wow i really feel like my toddler should be eating more than this. It tends to be from two things either. The baby is drinking too much milk or the milk is too close to the meal or the babies being pumped full of snacks. We've talked a lot about snacks on the podcast. But i really don't advocate for snacks prior to one and even after that i say use snacks judiciously and be empowered to say no to snacks. As a way to help your child feels of hunger and be hungry at mealtime. But don't let them up on milk either. There's plenty of children who are perfectly healthy. Who drink very little amounts of milk get their calcium brother-in-law's replaces they're getting their fluids from water and other high water content foods but just be aware of the number of ounces that your child drinks with regard to milk and i normally don't encourage parents to get really nitty gritty nitpicky about the numbers but just eyeball hamilton faces of milk a day. Your child is drinking and in the second year of life. The ap american academy of pediatrics recommends feeding somewhere between sixteen to twenty four ounces. I will routinely work with families whose babies and toddlers are drinking way more than twenty four ounces. So i personally like to keep in my own experience. My own seven children between somewhere between sixteen to twenty ounces of cow's milk in the second year of life it's perfectly fine for babies to drink less but anytime they're drinking more you're running the risk of that child drinking too much milk. At which point there will be over full from milk and then not as inclined to eat at mealtime. We also know in the research shows us that intakes of cow's milk above thirty two ounces per day predispose a to iron deficiency and as wonderful as milk is it doesn't contain iron and we don't want it to displace or cause the child to be full and then not eat other iron containing foods. Now let's talk a little bit about what not to feed when it comes to melt for families that are looking for milk alternative. Let's say the baby does have a cow's milk protein allergy though sometimes say okay. Women look to almond milk or soy milk. When it comes to milk alternatives you need to be cognizant of the fact that many of them contain added sugars so it is important to read labels. Parents say oh. My child loves vanilla soy milk. Of course they love analysis milk because it's basically like white chocolate milk because it's got a ton of added sugar in the vanilla. Flavoring is sugary. So we don't want any added sugars for babies until after age to and even then we need to keep it to a very minimum in. Most children eat significantly more added sugar than they should in. Its sneaks into the diet in places like soy milk or almond milk or p milk or whatever it is if it has added sugars so do read your labels look for zero grams of added. Sugar also take into consideration that like for example almond milk. They are not nutritionally quivalent to cow's milk one of the reasons why we feed our toddlers. Cow's milk at starting around age one is because it is a good source of protein or certainly other sources of protein. The baby's eating. But if you look at almond milk in a cup of cow's milk there's eight grams of protein but in a cup of almond milk. There's one or two grams of protein and people think well almonds are high protein food so almond milk would be but no through the processing of almonds into almond milk. Much of the protein is removed. And what's left doesn't have very much protein in it so again unless the child has the diagnosed. Cow's milk protein allergy. There's really no reason to start down the road of looking for a cow's milk alternative. If you do need to do that you wanna make sure that it does not have added sugar and look for something. That's equivalent as far as protein goes to cow's milk and i think plain soy milk as long as it's calcium vitamin d. Fortified is the best alternative. Now a couple of other things that changed around the one year mark as we want to think about transitioning the baby off of the bottle and this is news to a lot of parents will be walking with a two year old drinking out of a bottle. We definitely don't want that okay. The general rule of thumb is somewhere between twelve and fifteen months of age to try to win your baby off the bottle. We know that delayed bottle uses associated with delayed speech development. Right 'cause you're working on all these feeding milestones with the speech milestones are coming next as well so i've always given myself a little bit of a grace period again. There's a lot going on at the twelve month mark. You've got to have that birthday party. We're working on some other things. But by fifteen months of age. I definitely do try to have baby off the bottle. So it's just something to be thinking about and if you're like okay well they'd go off of the bottle. Then what do they drink out of. We really recommend that you go directly from the breast or bottle to an open cup and if this is all news to you i want you know you certainly can skip the sippy cup. One of the most downloaded episodes of this podcast is an interview. I did with my good friend and colleague don winkelmann. She's a pediatric swallowing expert. This episode it's called six reasons to skip the sippy cup with don winkelmann. You can find that at be l. w. podcasts dot com forward slash forty. Check that out for some more advice on how you can get your baby off of the bottle again. Something to be thinking about in the twelve fifteen month mark but remembering the babies don't just magically wake up on their twelve month birthday and know how to drink sixteen to twenty ounces of cow's milk out of an open cup we need to use the waning period as the opportunity to practice drinking out of the open cup and our goal is at baby drink out of an open cup by his self herself albeit with minimal spillage by about the time the baby turns one taste of start that open cup training early and often get. Your baby transitioned to cow's milk whole milk. Cow's milk if you have to do a cow's milk alternative because of cow's milk protein allergy. Look for no sugar options. Look for whole milk option equivalence. Those would be those alternatives that are fortified with calcium and vitamin d. So i know you guys get worried when your baby turns one that. There's all these things that you need to do differently and the reality is there's really not but one of the major changes is that we do take baby from breast milk and or formula and move them to cow's milk of course if you're breastfeeding continue to do so for as long as you and baby are comfortable or enjoy the experience but for the feeders. I know you guys want to be done at the one year mark you can definitely make that transition to cow's milk and i wanted to include that one of the ways i recommend making the transition as you can definitely go cold turkey like right from the formula or breastmilk to cow's milk if you want but what i'll do on my baby's first birthday is i'll start doing half cow's milk and half formula or breastmilk or a combination thereof so. I'll do half half basically until i run out of breast milk or i run out of formula at which point if i'm done pumping no more pump in of the breast built. If i'm done by formula. No more binded the formula. It usually takes a few days to run out. And then i'll move the baby directly to callous milk whole milk. Cow's milk trying to keep it somewhere between sixteen to twenty four ounces the day but also knowing that some babies do very well with less than that amount you really do just one avoid going over that amount because babies you drink too much milk we know it then negatively impacts the amount in their ability to eat food at mealtime because they're just not feeling hungry but also keep in mind it could be displacing other important foods that contain nutrients that as much as we love milk. Milk just doesn't provide so. I hope you guys found this episode helpful on how to pick a milk when your baby turns one for all the links related to this episode.

Number three, zero three zero. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff. I'm Lauren Boko bomb. And today we're talking about balloons helium balloons that have escaped the clutches of their human captors to float far beyond the mortal realms straight up into the Infinity of the stars. Well, not really. I hate to burst your well balloon, but that's not what balloons do when they're released. They burst blamed the composition of our atmosphere, helium balloons float because they're buoyant in the air. Like a beach ball is buoyant in water balloons. Don't fly the air around them, sinks, pushing them upward. That's because helium ways just zero point one, eight grams per liter, nitrogen and oxygen which together make up about ninety nine percent of the air. We breathe way one point, two, five grams and one point four, three grams per liter respectively and okay. Most helium balloons these days aren't filled with one hundred percent. Pure helium depending on the company selling it about twenty percent may be regular old air to help keep costs. Down and preserve the global helium supply. But as long as the weight of the balloon plus the helium mixture inside of it equals less than the weight of the air around it. It'll keep on moving up. However, nitrogen and oxygen aren't distributed evenly from sea level to outer space. Earth's gravity holds air close to the surface, the higher up you go, the thinner, aka less massive. The air gets just five miles up. There are only one third as many nitrogen oxygen atoms around you, ten miles up there only one tenth as many. So a helium mixture balloon wouldn't keep floating forever because eventually it would be heavier than the air around it. It'll stop when it hits a point of equilibrium. However, however, as evidenced by the lack of a thick layer of party balloons up in the sky, that's not how the story ends for free to balloon enter atmospheric pressure since the elements that make up our air supply hug the surface and thin out at increasing altitudes, the pressure that the Eric. Starts on objects, also drops and increase in Yalta toots, lower atmospheric pressure. Outside means the gases inside a balloon will want to expand how much that balloon can expand. Depends on what the balloon is made of latex rubber is pretty common and can stretch a lot a Mylar, which is a trade name for a type of stretched polyester that's strengthened with a film of evaporated metal does not stretch. So how long the balloon lasts before bursting depends on the material and how much helium mixture is in there a half full balloon will last longer also since latex is porous, a bit of helium mixture will constantly seep out the balloons walls, possibly giving it a little bit more time. And finally how the balloon pops will depend on the temperature of the air around it that temperature will decrease as the balloon rises through the troposphere. This is the lowest layer of earth's atmosphere extending four to twelve miles above the surface at the top, the troposphere temperatures reach negative sixty degrees. Fearing. Height, that's about negative fifty one celsius latex and Mylar both become brittle around negative forty degrees Fahrenheit or celsius. So if they make it up that far, the lose their ability to expand and they won't pup they'll shatter. So when and how balloons burst depends on three things. What the balloon is made of how much gases inside and the temperature around them.

I on top of all i host these podcasts shows so definitely not complaining not at all but just case you guys are wondering like Should go like you know drink. Some hot tea yes. I'm getting entering some hot tea after. I'm recording this episode. But anyway let's dive into what we're here to discuss. We're gonna be talking about soy. Soy products is considered healthy unhealthy. Good or bad. There's a lot of mixed reviews up there and a lot of people say different things. Soy and just soy products in general is arguably one of the most controversial nutrition topics. And i wanna i date kind of my personal feelings towards soy in just my opinions based on how my personal body has reacted to consuming soy products. So me myself. And i i try my hardest to avoid soy okay only because a really a messes with my skin. Okay so i'm already oily. Acne prone and soy products contain hormones in it. And i already have a huge hormonal imbalance going on so when i throw soy products into the mix it rarely makes my skin flare up. I get like really bad Cystic acne like nobody. No and how. I really know this and like can actually pinpoint like yes. My skin is flaring up because of soy is back a couple of months ago when i went vegan for like eight or not months Eight weeks. I was consuming a lot of temp bay. More importantly consuming a lot of tofu like a lot a lot of tofu to obviously make up for not consuming any seafood or not consuming. Any meet now in prescott -tarian by back then. I was eight purely vegan. So i was like what am i gonna use for my protein source so i bought a lot of tempe but i was really eating a lot of Soymeal i would get soy's sausage. I would buy tofu's so just. I was just consuming a lot of soy to make up for my protein source and in turn i was getting like super super bad Skim flare ups on my forehead. Especially and i like never Break out on forehead that bad you know And when. I went to my dermatologist aestheticians. She says that my skin's probably flaring up really bad. Because i'm consuming a lot of soy and it's just like messing up my chemical balance my hormonal balance. And she suggested that. I cut out the tofu in i did and within a week. My skin was better a lot better. Actually i wasn't getting those horrendous like assisting acne on my forehead so me personally i try to avoid it as they can because my body just doesn't respond well to it so again. This is just my personal experience. These are my personal feelings of you. Know how i feel toward soy-product. So i'm very like get them away from me but on one hand you know it's rich in nutrients and diets containing a appear to be linked to health benefits such as lower blood. Sugar levels improved. Heart held fewer menopause symptoms and perhaps even a lower risk of certain cancers yet on the other hand. Were like i kinda stand more by you know people are concerned about the healthfulness of soy rich diets. For instance some fear that eating too much soy may increase the risk of breast cancer thyroid function or have feminizing effects and men to name a few and so on today's episode. We're going to be reviewing the latest scientific evidence to determine whether soy is more likely to have positive or more likely to have negative effects on your health. Okay so let's begin. Kind of what. The positives as big went the positives With it being that soy contains various nutrients okay. Soy beans are naturally rich in protein and contain all the essential amino acids your body needs. They're also bridge implant fats fiber and several important vitamins minerals and beneficial plant compounds. Various soybean derived products exist. Here's a comparison of the nutrient content of several popular options per three. And a half ounce or one hundred gram Portions of soybeans so or of just soy products in general. All right so let's begin with just soybeans so four. One hundred grams of soybeans is hundred and seventy calories eighteen grams of protein. Nine grams of fat eight grams of carbs three grams of sugar as six grams of fiber so the nutrient content of soybeans per one hundred grand portions is pretty decent now. Let's look for tofu. So a hundred grams of of hundred grand portion of tofu is around. One hundred and forty four calories seventeen grams of protein nine grams of fat three grams of carbs. No sugar and two grams of fiber. Now let's take a look at tempe. A hundred grand. Portion of tempe is one hundred and ninety five calories twenty grams of protein so relatively high eleven grams of fat eight grams of carbs. No sugar and no fiber now. Let's take a look dema which is honestly one of my favorites On a c. That's one of the very few soy products. I can't cut out. Because i love it and salad. I love it and polka bowls. So eddie. mommy one hundred portion one hundred and twenty-one calories twelve grams of protein five grams of fat nine grams of carbs. Two grams of sugar and five grams of fiber. Now let's look at soy yogurt per one hundred grand portions soy yogurt around ninety four calories four grams of protein two grams of fat sixteen grams of carbs. One gram of sugar and less than a gram of fiber and lastly milk. Which i think is one of the more popular soy options. Pull consume so soy milk. One hundred grand portion is around forty three calories three grams of protein. One gram of fat five grams of carbs. Four grams of sugar and less than a gram of fiber. So that's again per one hundred grand portions for these particular products. So you guys. We're gonna come to very brief break and when we come back we're going to talk about the posits a consuming. Soy you want to be healthier yet. You just don't know what do all these shows telling you this and that but nothing seems to work will listen close. Golden state media concept's has got something great for the health and wellness podcast dedicated to workout trend. Healthy eating habits. Diane everything about healthy living. Join us in our banters as we help you not just live life to the fullest. Live it to the healthiest. What's up guys. Welcome back to gs mc health and wellness podcast. So right before the break. We gave you the breakdown on some of the more popular soy products per one hundred grand portions and basically breaking down its nutrient content so sewri does have a pretty good nutrient content and in addition to their vitamin and mineral content soybeans or a natural source of polyphenols which is a type of ox antioxidant. That may help. Protect your body against cell damage and conditions like heart disease. Soybeans are especially rich in ice. Afl avalon's a subclass of polyphenols referred to as fido estrogens due to their ability to attach to and activate estrogen receptors in your body. Soy i sa- flow. Vince are believed to be one of the main reasons. Behind the many perpetrate health benefits of soy based foods boiled soybeans contain ninety two one hundred thirty four milligrams of issa flagstones per three point. Five ounces depending on the variety due to their similarity in structure soy i so flown are often believed to mimic the hormone estrogen. However research suggests the soy eissa flames defer from in many ways with each having unique on the human body so in summary soy am foods derived from are typically rich in protein fiber vitamins minerals and antioxidants they also contain soy esa loans. Which are believed to offer of variety of health benefits. Soy rich diets have been linked to a few potential health benefits with the first being. That may help. Lower cholesterol levels came so several studies suggest that diets rich in soy foods may help lower. Ldl which is bad cholesterol and raise hdl which is good cholesterol. For instance one recent review suggests that a median intake of twenty five grams of protein per day may help reduce total and ldl bad cholesterol levels by around three percent. However the authors believed that in practice reductions may be larger people eat soy protein instead of animal protein however more research is needed to confirm this. Another reviews adjusts that soy rich diets may help reduce total and ldl bad cholesterol levels. By two to three percent. They may also raise hdl good cholesterol. By three percent reduced triglycerides levels by around four percent currently people with existing risk factors for heart disease such as high cholesterol obesity or type two diabetes appear to be among those who benefit most from soy rich diets in addition minimally processed soy foods such as soybeans tofu tempe and amami appeared to improve cholesterol levels. More than processed soy products and supplements it also may help protect heart health diets rich in legumes including soy may. Help lower your risk of heart disease. It appears that soy eissa flow. Wtn's may help reduce inflammation and blood vessels and improve their elasticity to factors believed to protect the heart of your health. A recent review for their links soy rich diets to a twenty and sixteen percent lower risk of stroke and heart disease respectively additional research suggests the diets rich. Soy foods may reduce your risk of dying from heart disease by up to fifteen percent it also may lower blood pressure. Soybeans 'em foods made from them are generally ridge and argenine and amino acid believed to help regulate blood pressure levels. Soybeans are also rich eissa flow. Wtn's another compound believed to offer blood pressure lowering benefits in one. Study eating half a cup or forty. Three grams of soy nuts daily was found to reduce diastolic. blood pressure. The bottom number of a blood pressure reading by around eight percent in some but not all women other studies linked daily intakes of sixty five one hundred fifty three milligrams of soy eissa flatulence to blood pressure reductions of three to six millimeters h. g. m. people with high blood pressure however it's unclear whether these small blood pressure lowering benefits apply to people with normal and elevated blood pressure levels. Some studies suggest both may benefit while other suggests. Only people with high blood pressure would experience this effect clearly. More research is needed on this topic. But for the time being the blood pressure lowering effects of soy if any appear to be very small another health benefit of soy is that it may also lower blood sugar one for few including seventeen randomized control studies. The gold standard in research suggests that soy asa flames may help slightly reduce blood sugar and insulin levels in menopausal women. Soy asif lavin's may also help. Lower insulin resistance a condition which sells no longer respond to insulin. Normally over time insulin resistance can result in high blood sugar levels and lead to type two diabetes. In addition there is some evidence that soy protein supplements may help slightly lower blood sugar and insulin. Levels and people with type two diabetes or metabolic syndrome metabolic syndrome refers to a cluster of conditions including high blood sugar cholesterol levels blood pressure and domino fat. That together tend to increase a person's risk of type two diabetes heart disease and stroke however these results aren't unanimous and several studies have failed to find a strong link between soy foods and blood. Sugar control and healthy people and those with type two diabetes therefore more studies are needed before strong conclusions can be made another great benefit of soy is may improve fertility. Well it may be grave. You're actually trying to get pregnant right so some research suggests that women eating soy rich diets may benefit from improved fertility in one study women with high intakes of soy. Eissa flynn's where one point three to one point eight times more likely to give birth following fertility treatments than those with lower soy eissa flavin intakes however men may not experience the same fertility-boosting benefits in another study. Soy foods were found to offer some protection against the effects of bisphenol a bpa found in some plastics believed to reduce artillery. However these findings in support of benefits for fertility are universal for instance. One review suggests that ingesting one hundred milligrams of soy esa flow ovens per day may reduce ovarian function and reproductive hormone levels too important fertility factors moreover and other review suggests that women consuming more than forty milligrams of soy asa fluid per day may be thirteen percent more likely to experience for issues than those with intakes below ten milligrams per day however most studies to date report that diets containing ten to twenty five milligrams and perhaps even up to fifty milligrams of soy eissa flow. Wtn's per day as part of a very diet do not seem to have any harmful effects on ovulation or fertility. These amounts of soy eissa flow vans are equivalent to around one to four servings of soy foods per day. So you guys were going into very brief break and when we come back. I'm gonna keep on giving ya the positives of consuming soy tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts. Nell listen close and here this out. Perceive there's a podcast network that covers just about everything that you've been searching. The golden state media concepts podcast network is here. I'll less than our podcast bliss with endless hours of podcast cupboards news sports music fashion looking entertainment fantasy football and so much more stop flirted around and go straight out to the golden state media concepts podcast network guaranteed to build that podcast is whatever it may be visit us at. Www dot gs mc podcast dot com. Follow us on facebook and twitter and download us on itunes soundcloud and google play. What's up y'all welcome back to gmc health and wellness podcasts. So where's an keep diving into ri- so what are the more You know why are people more inclined to consuming soy products. Right so again. We mentioned that soy products may improve fertility. It may lower blood sugar. It may lower blood pressure. It may help protect heart health and may help lower cholesterol levels. In addition to all of that m may also improve or may reduce menopausal symptoms. So as we've mentioned soy is rich and iso- flow wtn's a class of compounds also referred to as fido estrogens or plant estrogens due to their ability to bind to estrogen receptors in the body during menopause. A woman's estrogen levels naturally decrease resulting in unpleasant symptoms such as fatigue Vaginal dryness and hot flashes by binding to estrogen receptors. In the body. Soy eyesafe loans are believed to help somewhat reduce the severity of the symptoms. For instance research suggests that soy eissa fluence may help reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes. Soy ice afl ovens also appear to relieve the fatigue joint pain depression irritability anxiety and vaginal dryness experience during menopause and or the lear's leading up to it however not all studies report the same benefits therefore more research is needed before drying solid conclusions. In addition soy products may also improve bone health. The low estrogen levels experience during menopause may cause calcium to leach from the bones. The resulting bona's may cause postmenopausal women to develop week emperor bones. A condition known as osteoporosis. Some evidence suggests that intakes of forty to one hundred and ten milligrams of soy eissa flow ovens per day may reduce bone loss and improve markers of bone health and menopausal women. However more research is needed to confirm these findings to put this into perspective. This would be the equivalent of eating around five to fifteen and a half bounces of tofu or third to a cup of cooked soybeans. Also soya products may reduce the risk of breast cancer diets rich and soy have also been linked to a lower risk of certain cancers for instance one recent review of twelve studies suggest that women with high soy intakes prior to receiving a cancer diagnosis may be at a sixteen percent and lower risk of dying from the condition compared with those with the lowest intakes high. Soy and takes pre impose diagnosis may also reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence and postmenopausal women by to twenty eight percent. However this study suggests that pre-menopausal women may not experience the same benefit on the other hand. Another study suggests that both pre and post menopausal women eating soy rich diets may benefit from twenty seven percent lower risk of cancer however the protective benefits of soy were only observed in asian women while western women appeared to experience little benefit based on these studies. A proportion of women eating soy rich diets may benefit from a lower risk of breast cancer. Still more studies are needed to determine which women may benefit the most also. Lastly as well. I now been giving a lot of positives. Soy may reduce the risk of other types of cancer. Soy rich diets may also help. Lower the risk other types of cancer for instance study suggest that high intakes of soy eissa flow. Wtn's may reduce the risk of endometrial cancer by around nine percent. Nineteen percent sorry. In addition some studies have linked soy rich diets to a seven percent lower risk of digestive tract cancers an eight to twelve percent lower risk of colon and collect rel cancers especially in women on the other hand men. Eating cyber diets may benefit from a lower risk of prostate cancer. Finally one recent review of twenty three studies linked diets rich and soy food's twelve twelve percent and lower risk of dying from cancer particularly cancer of the stomach large intestines and lungs so to summarize all of the main key points. I just said soy rich diets may improve heart health and lower blood pressure blood sugar and cholesterol levels. They also improve fertility reduced symptoms of menopause and protect against earn cancers however. More research is needed so with all that being. Say noah sounds like. I gave you a lot of positives. And there's a lot of health scientific evidence of soit being healthy and providing. You know all of these amazing health benefits so why are wire people concern about soy soybeans and foods derived from them have been part of the human diet for centuries nevertheless some people worry about including soy in their diet due to the following areas of concern. Okay so i'm just going to listen mom. Some areas of concern are estrogen mimicking effects. Cancer risk thyroid function feminizing effects and men danger to babies. gmo's anti nutrients and digestive issues. So let's begin with the first concern here was which is estrogen mimicking effects. Soy i so flovent are often thought to mimic the female reproductive hormone estrogen in k. And all they're similar in structure to this hormone. Soy is so flow vents have weaker and slightly different effects. Then estrogen and then cancer. Risk another very common concern. Some people believe that soy ice afl ovens may raise the risk of breast or endometrial cancer yet. Most studies find no negative in some cases they may even offer some protection against certain cancers like i mentioned earlier then we have the thyroid function right test tube in animal. Studies suggest that some compounds found in soy may reduce. I would gland function yet. Human studies find little to no negative effects especially in humans with healthy thyroid function. Then we got feminizing effects in matt. This is a big wine gray. Some worry that is flow. Wtn's may reduce the production of the male hormone testosterone. However shimin studies find a weak link between the two then. We got danger to babies some fear that soy formula may negatively affect brain sexual thyroid or immune development yet studies typically failed to observe any long-term negative effects of soy formula and healthy full term babies. Then we got. Gmo's soybeans are often genetically modified okay and gmo. Soy may contain fewer nutrients and more urbicide residues than conventional or gimmicks sawyer more research about the long term health effects of gmo. Soy is needed. Then we got the anti nutrients soy beans contain compounds. That may lower the abilities. The body's ability to absorb the vitamins and minerals contain soaking sprouting. Fermenting and cooking are ways to reduce these anti nutrient levels and soy and then last lead last concert here digestive issues. Animal studies suggest that the anti nutrients and soy may reduce the guts barrier function possibly resulting in inflammation and digestive issues however. More studies are needed to confirm this. See you guys are working in county very brief break when we come back more about soy and concerns people have the gmc life than happiness. Podcast takes you on a journey of exploration. We'll discuss tried. And true methods alongside the latest trends of how to best live your life to its fullest and happiest from psychology to meditation science to self help books.

Podcast on itunes stitcher soundcloud. Who will play or anywhere you find. Podcasts just tie. Jesse see in the search bar. What's up y'all welcome back to gs mc health and wellness podcasts. So in the previous segment we discussed some of the More popular more discuss concerns regard. See why people are Hesitant about consuming soy products and again i'll just very quickly reviews some of those concerns So people you know. They're concerned about estrogen. Mimicking affects cancer risk thyroid function feminizing effects and men danger to babies. Gmo's anti nutrients in digestive issues. Keep in mind that while these concerns common few of them are supported by sound science moreover when negative effects have been observed. They often followed the consumption of very large amounts of soy. Okay so if you eat it once in a while here and there you know you consume soy milk one week or whatever. It's not going to lead to these. Negative facts k. It's really of you. Consume very large amounts of it. For instance men who reported experiencing feminizing effects from soy consumed amounts up to nine times larger than the average intake of men with soy rich diets. Although possible it would be difficult for most people to eat that much soy each day. So they were eating nine times than the average intake. Okay so to conclude here. You guys the concerns that i just listed are commonly cited when it comes to soy and generally few are supported by strong science and more research is needed to confirm the remaining so with that being said. I do want to point out and emphasize that not all soy based food are the same right. It's worth mentioning that not all. Soy foods are equally nutritious or beneficial. Which i think goes to say for about almost any item you eat. Generally the less processed food is the more vitamins minerals and beneficial compounds. It may contain on the other hand. The more processed food is the more salt sugar fat and unnecessary tibbs and fillers likely contains. That's why minimally processed soy foods such as soybeans tofu tempe at amami and unsweetened soy milk and yogurt are considered superior to soy based protein powders mock meats energy bars or sweetened. Soy milk and yogurts and again this goes for like any type. Any category of food like we've been told tama ganda to stay away from processed foods to try to eat whole nutritious minimally processed. That's really like the best. Healthiest way to go. minimally processed. soy foods may also offer benefits beyond those Associated with their nutrient content for instance the appear more effective are reducing blood sugar or cholesterol levels than process soy based foods or supplements in addition fermented soy foods. Such as soya sauce. Tempe me so and nado are often considered more beneficial than non-fermented soy products. And that's because for men tation reduce some of the anti nutrients naturally found in foods and this cannot improve your body's ability to absorb the nutrients found in soy cooking sprouting and soaking or additional preparation techniques that can help reduce the anti nutrient content of soy foods and enhance their digest ability so to summarize minimally processed soy foods such as soybeans tofu. tampa bay. Ah demain may and unsweetened soy milk and yogurts are considered superior to highly process wants and above all fermented. Soy foods may offer additional benefits. So here's the bottom line you guys. With soy soybeans itself are rich in nutrients and beneficial plant compounds diets. Rich and minimally processed foods may offer various health benefits including improved heart. Health fewer menopause symptoms and a lower risk of certain cancers. However some worry about potential downsides including its gmo genetically modified content Possible estrogen like effects and long term influence on growth digestion sexual maturation thyroid health and breast cancer risk. Currently few of these concerns are backed by strong science however more research is needed those wishing to include soy in their diet would benefit from picking minimally processed foods over highly processed Once which again goes to say for anything food base not just soy. So i think i gave you all the main points of sore like as healthy is it not and i think we can conclude here that it does offer you know a lot of nutrient value and health benefits. However you just have to be careful that you don't over consume and that you you know. Just keep your portions and control and try to choose. A soy products are minimally processed. I think that's going to be the safest route to take And kind of switching gears. Here i wanna talk about. Why tampa bay is incredibly healthy and nutritious and a great source of protein out there so like i mentioned in the very beginning of the episode. I went plant based for about eight weeks. And i did really well actually. I'm pretty part of myself. I was able to keep up with the style of diet Although i did miss my seafood so that is why. I am officially pesca. Tearing been as pesca in for like the last two months but tampa bay was one that i was eating a lot while being plant based so i i want to dive more into what is tampa bay Because i'm sure like if you eat me. I don't know attempt as never tried it. When i first bought the package was like that looks like brain. My now i know my mother anyway. So for those of you don't know what tempus tempe is a fermented soy products popular vegetarian and vegan. Meat replacement However vegetarian or not. It can be a nutritious addition to your diet okay. So it's high. In protein probiotics and a wide array of vitamins and minerals temp is a versatile ingredient. That comes with a variety of health benefits. So we're going to cut into a very brief break and when we come back i'm going to show with the guys and take a deeper look at the many advantages of tempe still search of that one true love on the limbo in this crazy world of dating marriage relationships. Well listen to the golden state media concepts relationship. Podcast your one-stop podcast for everything about relationships. Hey guys welcome back to gs mc health and wellness podcast. We are now entering defines segment of today's show and we're gonna be uncovering and taking a deeper look at tempe what is tampa bay. And why. I don't know maybe you should added into your diet. Tempa is for sure on one of the Healthier soy option. So of your are looking to add soya into your diet or veer. One who's concerned about consuming. Soy temp is going to be a safe route. Okay so tempe for those. Who don't know is a traditional food. Made from soybeans. The have been ferment. -ted are broken down by microorganisms following. Ferman tation the soybeans are pressed into a compact cake that is commonly consumed vegetarian source of protein. A usually comes like an a block. And that's what it means by cake. It's like a block okay similar to tofu. In addition to soybeans tempe may also be made from other being varieties. We were mixture of soybeans and meat and wheat. Tempe has a dry and firm but chewy texture on a slightly nutty taste it can be steamed sauteed or baked and it's often marinated to add more flavor much like meatless sources of protein such as tofu and seton tampa bay is a popular choice among vegans and vegetarians because it's packed with nutrients so again tempe is typically made up of fermented soybeans. And or we. It can be prepared in a variety of different ways and his high in nutrients making a popular vegetarian source of protein. So tempe is rich and many nutrients We kind of went over it. In the beginning of the podcast. I'm just going to refresh your mind right now. So tampa boasts an impressive nutrient profile. It is high in protein vitamins and minerals but lo and sodium and carbs. Eight three ounce or eighty four gram serving of tempe contains these nutrients hundred sixty two calories fifteen grams of protein. Nine grams of fat nine grams of carbs nine milligrams of sodium twelve percent of the recommended daily intake for iron nine percent of the rdi for calcium eighteen percent of the rdi for viable flam twelve percent of the rdi for nia seen eighteen percent of the rdi for magnesium twenty one percent of the rdi for phosphorus and lastly fifty fifty four percent of the rdi for janis because it is more compact products tempe provides more protein than some other vegetarian alternatives for example three ounces of tofu contained six grams of protein or about forty percent of the protein in the same amount of tempe. Tempe is also a good dairy free source of calcium. One cup of tempe contains about two thirds of the calcium fanned in one cup of home milk. So that was very specific to really show you guys and break down the nutrient profile of temp. So like i said it contains prebiotics fermentation as a process that involves a breaking down of sugars by bacteria and yeast through fermentation. The finnick acid found and soybeans is broken down helping to improve digestion and absorption unpasteurized fermented foods may contain probiotics or are beneficial bacteria that may provide health benefits when in however tempe s fermented using a fungus and is usually cooked before eating. Additionally commercial products are patriot is for these reasons. It contains minimal amount of bacteria however tempests seems to be rich and prebiotics types of fiber that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in your digestive system studies have found that prebiotics increase the formation of short chain fatty acids in the colon. These include boutroue with the primary source of energy for the cells that line. Your colon evidence suggests probiotic supplements caused beneficial changes in the gut microbiome to bacteria that reside in your digestive system. Although studies have provided mixed results some have linked prebiotic intake with increased tool frequency reduce inflammation an improved memory. It's also high in protein to keep you full. Sue provides the feeling of tatum. Tempe is high in protein so again. One cup provides thirty one grams of protein. Some study suggests that a protein rich diet may stimulate thermo genesis leading to an increase metabolism. And helping your body burn more calories after each meal. A diet high in protein can also aid and appetite control by increasing fullness and decreasing hunger one study found the high protein source knacks improved appetite. Setyawati and die equality compared to high fat snacks. Additionally research shows that soy protein can be just as effective as meat based protein when it comes to take control and a two thousand fourteen study. Twenty men replace on a high protein diet that included either soy based or meat based protein. After two weeks. They found that both diets lead to weight loss. A decrease in hunger and an increase in fullness with no significant difference between the two protein sources also may reduce cholesterol levels. Tempe is traditionally made from soybeans which contain natural plant compounds called eissa flatulence. Soy isoflurane phones have been associated with reduce cholesterol levels. When review looked eleven studies and found that sawyer is afl ovens were able to significantly decrease both total and ldl cholesterol another study looked at the effects of soy protein on cholesterol levels and triglycerides forty. Two participants were fed a diet containing either soy protein or animal protein over a six week period compared to animal pro team. Soy protein decrease. ldl cholesterol by five point seven percent and total cholesterol by four point. Four percent also decrease triglycerides by thirteen point three percent. Though most available research focuses on the effects of soy ice afl avalon's and soy protein on blood cholesterol. One study dead focus specifically on tampa a. Two thousand thirteen animal study examined. The effects of nutrient enriched soy bean tempe on mice with liver damage. It found that tempe had a protective effect on the lever and was able to reverse damage to liver cells. Additionally tempe cause a decrease in both cholesterol and triglycerides levels it could also decrease date of stress studies. Show that soy beans also possess antioxidant properties. M reduce oxidative stress anti-oxidants work by neutralizing free radicals items that are highly unstable and could contribute to the development of chronic disease. The accumulation of harmful free radicals has been linked to many diseases including diabetes heart disease and cancer. Numerous studies have shown the isoflurane flavorings could reduce markers of oxidative stress. By increasing axe antioxidant activity in the body. Other studies have found that supplementing with soy is flat. Flatlands may have a favorable fact on several diseases associated with oxidative stress. For example one animal studies showed that soybean sa- flagstones decrease blood sugar levels and brought with diabetes another study used data from six thousand households in japan and found that intake products was associated with a decreased risk of death from heart disease and stomach cancer campaign as should be beneficial compared to other sweet products. One study compared the ice of flow ovens and soybeans to the eissa flatulence in tempe and found that temping had greater antioxidant activity. In addition temp can promote bone health. Tempe is a good source of calcium. A mineral that is responsible for keeping bones strong and dense adequate calcium. Intake may prevent development of osteoporosis. Which is a condition that is associated with bone loss and porous bones and one study forty. Elderly women increase their calcium intake through diet or supplements for two years increasing calcium intake decreased bone loss and preserve bone density compared to control groups. Another study looked at thirty seven women and showed increasing dc terry calcium intake by six hundred ten milligrams per day to prevent related bone loss. Other studies show the increase in calcium intake could help increase bone growth and density and children and teenagers. Though dairy products are the most common sources of calcium studies. Show that the calcium in tempe well absorbed as a calcium in milk making it an excellent option for increasing calcium intake. So with that being said. I do have a little disclaimer here. Tempe may not be for everyone. And here's why tempe along with other fermented soy products is generally considered to be safe for most people however some individuals may want to consider limiting their intake of tempe. Those with the soy allergy should avoid tempe. Altogether eating tempe may trigger an allergic response for those allergic to soy which could include symptoms like hives swelling or difficulty breathing additionally soybeans or considered a goi trajan a substance that can interfere with thyroid function though studies show. That soy intake has little to no effect on thyroid function. Those with impaired thyroid function may wanna keep intake in moderation. So here's the bottom line. You guys regarding so are temporary. Tempe is a nutrient dense product. Soy-product with a high amount of protein as well as various vitamins and minerals it may decrease cholesterol levels oxidative stress and appetite. While improving bone health tempi also contained prebiotics which may improve digestive health and reduce inflammation nevertheless those with a soy allergy or pared thyroid function should limit their intake of tampa and other soy based products yet for most tampa bay is a versatile nutritious food that can be an excellent addition to the diet and again. It's not just exclusive to vegans and vegetarians. This is is a great option for anyone who's just trying to switch up. their protein. Sores are for anyone is just trying to be a little more vegan conscious trying to limit their meat and take tempe is a great alternative meat alternative. So you guys. That's basically gonna wrap up.

405: How Hard Do You Need To Train For Muscle Gain?, Keto Muscle Building, Protecting Yourself From Pesticides & Much More!
"In this episode of the Ben Greenfield Fitness podcast. How hard performance nutrition Dan Phillips have the flu around me now I mean you get one of these every single week why a slight fat and muscle damage really you know it's like fricken massage and it it does dump some inflammation and some you know right after this it's always the next day I mean I get wonderful massages job magnetic field table so it kind of opens and closes your your cell channels a two and a half hours last night so that's probably why feel this morning and I'm assuming that does not use their feet at least one point during the massage is indeed I've got we have a lot of good questions it's been a little while since he made a little Q. and A. Podcast baby together I thought your equipment last time we were supposed to do one of these he's here we are so what do you think should we talk about some of the different studies and research that caught my attention gene muscle loss muscle hypertrophy Cetera he recently published a pretty good article article because I think a lot of people including myself at one point or another have been led old appreciable amounts of muscle and it turns out that there are a few key aspects to consider but first of all the current evidence if you look at all the different studies muscle size as if you train to true muscle failure so first of all there's no train muscle failure you can slow down post exercise recovery by an additional when you look at the fact that you don't need to do it to put on muscle size anyways and a few other takeaways were that training muscle failure can be more relevant when training is up to twenty five pound rubber dumbbells then in that case if you using lightweight you're may be a little bit more of a priority if you're using light loads hundred bodyweight squats the failure but if a barbell loaded up with a hefty amount of way which is important too because of course anytime you're training to muscle failure you you know that's not to say that those are the best things to train on but if you're new to exercise let's say a leg curl or bicep curl or tricep extension or one of those type joint exercises to failure and for the multi joint exercises like let's say a lap whole down tide joint or single joint so those are just a few of the takeaways but I the important to go a little closer to failure and then for single joint exercises better one to two extra days See I just go for as many except muscle tears I did actually bodybuilding pretty rough and I actually saw one dude seen attending roll up after being torn other than the biceps or yeah down they kill as it's another common yeah I remember that it was it was indeed he had a Hematoma and ended up like exploding speaking of building muscle here's another interesting Study that I thought I yeah exactly the frenemies now what this one looked and what are also known as PG see one Alpha pathways which are wonderful for things pathways that would be responsible for muscle growth now at the with the the idea behind that being that might not be Kito Sus per se a what they did find were were few interesting takeaways from this one first of all protein synthesis exceeding muscle protein breakdown in somebody who say like weightlifting USCIS for muscle hypertrophy on high fat diet even in the absence of a lot of our protein to build muscle and so you know whereas I've always said at seven two zero point eight grams per pound range if you're on a Ketogenic Diet you and you don't get a lot of added benefit once you exceed about zero point eight grams per pound and Zengin take but if you're following Kito Diet and zero point seventy zero point eight grams per pound Beta hydroxybutyrate compounds that increase which is something that can actually increase lifespan but may also accelerate it'd be a little bit lower would be to supplement with like these kitone esters afrest on a lower carbohydrate diet that wasn't stimulating these these 'em tour pathway Circuito esters that you'd find made by companies like hp man or kitone eight your muscle repair and recovery so that that's another thing to consider another interesting takeaway from the article was this idea of the carbohydrates spare a little bit of glycogen during exercise meaning that you you in the absence of a lot of carbohydrates it'd be creating which allows for a lot of these awesome nb an ATP that's like a one two combo that the research goes back might be a good idea to further accelerate the amount of glycogen sparing that you get largely until you add adequate protein and then you consider so I've had some like broke conversations with people whether it be in the gym or doing functional fitness also afraid of this whole or activation I feel like there's kind of myths that precinct protein like your noting yeah so for that the key is Shiite eat zero point eight grams per pound of protein but have for example a twelve to sixteen that I wanted to bring up and that was ways that we can induce autophagy idea behind this is that a tofte g may you know have a tumor suppressive I know that it participates in hormesis which is kind of the ways that that sells adapt you the type of Tofte g that you get from say fasting or you know last week was entitled Coffee Induces actually it wasn't last week and so what this looked into was both caffeinated Pineda and decaffeinated coffee although the caffeinated coffee at a slightly increased effect and so from practical standpoint this would mean like if you are going to do intermittent fasting mm-hmm either caffeinated that'd be preferable but even decaffeinated coffee to evening and so you could kind of accelerated on on both fronts right you could intermittent fast get up in I've but you could also use some of the things that he recommended my podcast with him to accelerate in my pantry and you can just if you mix it all in the same jar just take a couple of teaspoons of this glycemic powder and camel powder and you just blend the it's about a half teaspoon activation and increases autophagy so You know that combined with what you could do is actually increase it using some of these methods like fasting and Coffee Asia in the presence of fasting not just that you drink shipped on a coffee and there you go you're you're oh coffee was inducing either way okay but again like since since we know that increase the process even more by consuming coffee in a fasted state or or some you phenol at simulator a caffeine pill would probably be less preferable than these rats I was trying to see you know what I human somewhere between two hundred and four hundred milligrams of coffee or of Kathy Yeah which would be often you know 'cause a Lotta these effects yeah and of course we know Green Tea I don't know my my taste buds are clearly destroyed right I dump so it was about these these explorers in the eighteen hundreds and the paradox saying plants have all these built in natural defense mechanisms therefore we should completely soaking and even Steven Gunnery has his book you know he's like pressure cooker potato if you WanNa de-activate is that you could you could inhibit some of these natural plant defense mechanisms but as a creek in Australia and the local people gave the explores these cakes Oh sounds so yeah what happened was though two of the guys wound up dead because they did not realize that actually it fills you up but then completely starve nutrients and you die and what the local who steps deactivates the thymus but of course the explores didn't know this and they just the little bit more common than than Darb do and that is very very karoo starch based wraps in the US now but the problem is if you take the cassava and you process it properly as a of that deactivate the hydrogen cyanide and with the article goes into is there's a lot of these tribes and indigenous populations they develop these complex rituals do over the course of multiple multiple generations learn how to deactivate grains and seeds and nuts and some of these things that similar to cassava or nor do could ends and manuals for deactivating host of different plant defense mechanisms or he's like here's your chickpea helmets recipe used chick peas and blend with Cook and so you know the takeaway here is for a very long author inherently bad and and you know many cultures have stumbled upon multiple steps to make the consumption there's some people you know like Dr Salvino who had an a podcast who just say well screw it let's Shafir something that can be like the lazy way out right just Yash and meet some organ or maybe some you know Pumpkin puree without the skin in the seeds and you know I certainly use a Diet Soak my keen Wan said it overnight like it does kind of make cooking and food prep back on a solid and sprouts and I thought I just don't know I'm over here the people who did all right well let's let's go ahead and give folks some some sweet discount code answers every single podcast when we talk for example earlier about the Ketogenic Diet they they are top selling product they're complete building blocks is that like steak and eggs in a capsule or a powder they're extremely zero at get kion dot com. I think I recently saw you on Instagram J. in in in the best way possible I mean we're not take those things I am pumped up and so that stuff every hour and it's just a a huge shot in the arm so check out the keenum knows that get new flavors of their wonderful guilt free gluten skin tastes like it tastes like fall and then they also just launched their blueberry extract and a little bit of coconut oils chicory root fiber there's a bunch of protein yeah and they're giving all of our listeners free shipping on cereal they have a one hundred Ode Ben Greenfield will get free shipping so magic spoon dot Com and I is also brought to you by juve these Juve but one of the really cool ways that I've been using the light now that the winner has set recent podcast guest of mine who's a young man who's a real expert in light Matt Miranda Happen but what I've been doing just going to my office you know I I start working my computer flip on these red eight. Am to see the sunrise or on the flip side in the summer you get up at the ungodly hour of four even if you can't get outside and they're also wonderful for things like seasonal affective disorder take it with you anywhere I'm headed to Dubai this weekend they'll be thrown one of my bag for Dubai ah the orioles another one they are basically this new clothing allowed to say something like Lululemon I guess if I am not GonNa get Rach they dry quick they're sustainably made from recycled plastics and these work ticket they look good everybody's GonNa fatness count on these these of your clothes you go to Oh Code Ben Twenty five of your clothing dot com if people haven't tried I'm glad you decided to put pants on the show for for one day it's an audio show you'd Bland's lately I've been lazy and instead of selecting my mushrooms precisely in systematically from Mela a kiss which is really great one for the immune system support begins and that's their ten mushroom blends so it's pretty much everything they called the shield bland all this stuff in your cup of coffee in the morning and then they get a little twist a rose hip in there for the vitamin C. Sigmatic Dot com slash Ben Greenfield it's F. O. U. R. Sigmatic Rounding Nursing and you know walking around in the grass around my house but the problem is even track it inside what do you recommend I do about that and still to be able to get at book and tell them about all the deleterious effects of the great American lawn how much water that it just needs to go and educate his neighbors on the on the benefits of wild plant foraging and the deleterious I mean you know when when it comes to pesticides yeah dermal exposure absorbed in high quantities through the epidermis and than any other part of the body if they wind up on the genitals so a don't go drag your butt the hands and the feet to the higher the temperature is the ambient temperature outside of the higher the temperature shampoos and soaps that are not clean or a lot of parabens delights in them when the skin is hot safety I mean is it's pretty bad in terms deliver that's also I kids shouldn't use alcohol or you know much much lower doses in children and we know glyphosate which is probably the worst that actually stops the normal development in adults it can cause a lot of of gut damage very similarly and there is to be able to use natural sustainable biodynamic farming processes there's lawn cetera dermal exposure is is pretty great too you has been proven over and over again but when it comes to going you know like right now while we're talking Jay I'm grounded I bought one of those grounding Matt's from having without necessarily needing to be outside barefoot which would yup burn and their failure to use them as well I'm younger foot when I'm in my office and standing products from a website like a low em dot com to where you can ground your laptop graduate computer founded conductive lacing system and then copper plugs on the bottom of the sandals they also did you know no matter where you're at there's a stainless steel thread on the bottom of the lace and then a copper doc the five toe socks to wear them with but the earth runners I'm a huge fan of this concept of issue any running shoe and is just basically a conductive strap that allows do but they have this conductive silicone layer on the bottom of the pad so that's a cool cool idea as well so those would be the top two things I is that if you've been exposed to pesticides lactic specifically like some of these fermented cabbages and plants they can actually reduce the damages George maybe a little bit of Sauerkraut sausage and give yourself a little bit of extra handles 'cause they're super minimalist it looked kind of like and of pizza thread coming across the top across the desert wondering why I was able to do that why would it be that some days one of the APPS will say that normally do I've found over the last few weeks that the APPS right both of them that'd be helpful thanks you HR V. and then there's that that APP that I use sometimes in the morning for more precise that you can monitor heart rate variability of a variety of michaels and typically some kind of smoothing algorithm is used for that that out of these devices is called the R. M. SSD which I think main method to measure between beat the heart though the by taking the log of France smoothing mechanism they use one called the S. D. N. N. which is the standard deviation versus say like a an or ring which uses r. m. SSD it's measured so what I mean by that is there are things that how you're actually measuring for example nearly every research study so it's Kinda like weighing yourself using using a body fat scale you'd WanNa make sure ed every single morning in the same state of hydration preferably at the same time of day really the same time each day another thing that can affect our certain foods are far different from measurement measurement and there are a this is a wrist worn measurement all of these are going to give slightly different them so it's not only the algorithm that's used it's the technology or the hardware that's used any type of like cardiac abnormality like for example going to get accurate HIV analysis another thing that can throw the thing that would you know dump a lot of extra tone and into the class that can also affect our and that you're using preferably if you're mixing and matching technologies technologies different algorithms like an Apple Watch is going to be totally different for HR V. versus say the laying you know we'll do five minute measurements during the entire night than smooth those out arrests wave is basically doing like an ekg based heart rate tracer you could you know if there is not as precise getting like you cyrus blood based food allergy during your hr v. and see how you can kind of alter your hr v. using Eric's than just using real time HIV measurements like you know like the or a ring or something like that is this tends to be kind of a passion of mine why do clinically as well but one of the things that I'll fairly null and void and the reason being is because when you look at research on you can't really accurately compare the SDN of two time periods of different links and because norms on sdn based on twenty four hour norms we typically see that someone seventy two milliseconds and that's because when we look at SSD that's actually influence arm SSD nearly as much as sdn in so for instance if you have someone who's a so like for for instance you have people all the time asked me about their own ring deviation of fifteen so I always say you know for me when looking at peak performance or optimization I always more so a lot of people ask about that because they're so confused because they'll look at their apple watch and they'll say well my apple watch the only thing other thing I'll say about this too is that if you really looking at Vegas town or Vega the frequency domains low-frequency ultra low frequency berry low frequency and the frequencies went went again would it be important to look at the frequencies and what situation yet time it correctly which means that you need to take your measurements at the exact exact same time wheat. HR V. APP in the morning and you're modifying your breath work to like get it what's your hr V. is because you're basically you're causing it to go up see where somebody out in their low frequency band and also too I might also look at their at low frequency band when they're about to serve a tennis ball because if there the low frequency band yeah and I think that the important like in nature beat experience experiment with box breathing four seven eight you may also have a very low. Hr V. that you can artificially elevate for a short period of time finished with that breath work but the breath work can be used to induce kind of a temporary you use nature beat to take your hr V. or you glance at your readiness score or your preparedness you want to engage in some active recovery methods then you can measure in real time the APP measure low-frequency score do you like some breath work or anything else and then do something that would induce a pair of sympathetic state again box breathing or a the aura ring because it is taking my HIV when I'm not thinking about it because what I'm thinking practice breath work and the more we practice say like a skill like meditation we can actually eating our HR V. we are on one hand but on the other hand were also helping to train the nervous dominance or just have that balance then we're we're we're really able to do so overall recovery usually ordering cool the rabbit hole but I did recently for those you need like a more basic overview of HR V. I oh five I will link to that linked to this this nature beat APP that Amos J and I think I have a little misunderstanding. I'm hoping you could clear up for math plant paradox diet and mentioned that sometimes you will put clients on this offense mechanisms that you might be avoiding in the plant paradox diet so well like I mentioned we came full circle for back to the plant Paradox Diet Man Shing discussion and of course a big part of his life span book is based on these only active in the presence of NASD which is why the use of N. eighty supplements
Krumbled Foods with founder Keira Rumble
"Welcome to tolkien clean with i rain. I'm your host. I rain fell carney. I'm a mother. Animal lover an entrepreneur and the founder of nourished life australia. Home of clean living.

Thank you in the most beautiful podcast recording room. I've ever baynes. Yes thank you very much. I actually usually do so many podcasts. Because of covid had anyone in person for so long and then. I sort of rearrange rearranged podcast room. And so we've brutal the podcast equipment into the into the land. Thank goodness it's quiet. Okay so we are to talk about crumble your brand. We have so much to talk about how much i am okay. This is really going to upset. A few people he all. I've actually gone vegan. But i still eat crumble. They know how. I can only describe them as a real sweet tooth day are a the most morrish. Yep trait bought guilt free. Yeah can you please explain to me. How do you make something that tyrod good. And it's gooey and a love luck. Say julia mean it's not crumbly. Even it's moist. It's called crumbled. They don't they don't crumble as no crumbs at all. It's very exp- just take me through the product and there's three what in off four take me through all four. Yeah try and help me describe the thais to everybody. That's listening okay. And also the health benefits like what inside it. How how can it be healthy when a tie good. Yeah sorry way came up. I came up with the idea that i needed to completely turn the health food industry on its head. I went through my own weight loss journey. Because i was diagnosed as insulin resistant when i was twenty and i was quite a white but it wasn't about the white house just more about the way that i felt so i didn't realize that all of these healthy products that was turning to we're actually hidden loaded with hidden sugars and i became really frustrated with not being able to find anything that was truly healthy and then i would find something healthy it would taste rubbish and i would be forcing himself eight so i came up with this concept correct health food. That was actually healthy but also just as delicious healthy so in concepts you know creating healthy brand seemed like a great idea and i then combined this for a grab and gar snuck but also supplement says that was combined with. You know what you're taking the morning with the collagen powder is you probiotics getting enough fiber and they're having vitamin c. Which is essential for collagen production and absorption and then having vitamin a. Sorry i went to a food tech. And i've got to nutrition background so we came up with this. These king. gradients approve with anti-aging dot health ingredients but my biggest factor was to make it. Low suga natural put bloody delicious and had you and that's all because when you go to the convenience store or whatever and he just needed something because you have an atan and yet there's nothing there there's literally nothing in all health basel just full of nuts and sugar and whatever. Yeah that just upset you. Tommy and actually. Interestingly enough they do. Because i had one the other day because again always stop starving animals running around on a needed. Something to abel's driving. And i got like a pain up. Bought a ball thing and i got the worst bloating. Indigestion is i don't know what are these might be the protein or something in it that i don agrees they. Everyone's obviously different. Sorry for may. I was getting really triggered by pl- politically roles which are in quite a lot of protein. Baas you know that's things like multahleb which is just really harsh on your stomach. If you have a sensitive stomach so that was really important to put probiotics and probiotics boss you so what is talk to me about pre and probiotics as well because they seem to be in everything these days and doing eight them. What do they actually do. And i guess it's not just about tossing the mean. Something is that they need to be obviously matched with other ingredients to make them work properly. So yeah talk to me about those supreme probiotics essential to have together. I in my opinion. It's prebiotics help fade the good bacteria which is obviously why we put the probiotics in there. So they work basically together. Probiotics are really. You know it's a buzz word at moment. Everything you've got chips that up pro. I mean that's taking it to our. I tasted some pretty tasty. Choose but you can get different strains of probiotics and you can also get probiotics. Actually on shelf stable so without it was really important. Actually have probiotics thought a shelf stable but also get all the way down into your got so a lot of the probiotics die officer news. You ate them. So there's a whole science around different probiotics different abilities. Different spore forming. And it's just to an area that i really wasn't aware of that. My food techie. And he's very passionate about health and he was the one that said. I've got the perfect strain i've got. This is just the perfect combination. And you know. I'll i'll got sick and brighton so important to nurture it and i've been there had so many issues in my life and i think that that's one of the most i didn't lead in with a product forgot benefits but a lot of our feedback from customers is my god has made so so much better off taking them. So that's a really nice. How many can you ate a day. How many how many are you like. What's the recommended amount that you can have sorry. You can have as many as you want but obviously the more you wait more calories you get if feel conscious about that for us. We recommend wanted to die. Okay okay so one of maybe okay. So win win in the morning and whenever you want in the afternoon around three the it's definitely four o'clock pick me up that visa definite but when would you have the first one in the morning sometimes in the morning so this morning i left early. I had a coffee and i grabbed a pd on the way down to say you. And then i have mine just before. I go to bed so i have one in the afternoon one in the not time okay and so we formulated so you the amount of college and we got three thousand eight hundred milligrams of the collagen. Our way advised that you won a day for six weeks and you'll start saying the collagen benefits. Yeah that's that was what i was gonna ask you so you can just have one day and not good right because he collagen works really well overnight have with the regeneration and all that okay and so what kind of benefits without getting lock sales without making any claims or anything but what sort of in general benefits do we get from because it's beef collagen. Yep so what you can't you lose you start making college and don't use them for almost forty five so i know all about this. When did it stop for me. Thirty five slowdown. Collagen stops slows. Down around twenty eight twenty five twenty eight so you start losing the ability to stop producing collagen mall and sorry. The idea of collagen is to talk up the collagen that y'all losing so that's just a very simplified way. There is no vegan source of collagen. We are trying to work on different peptides around the vegan source. But at the moment you just don't get the benefits that you do firms summit something like they've i think collagen is to such an incredible thing for people to be having so way obviously look at the skin benefit. Yes so what are the skin benefits of collagen in general even when we make it ourselves when we're younger hydration. Sorry the biggest thing for me. That i started noticing when i was just playing around with formulations was skin hydration. So he's not saying better skin. Hydration that julie the love that i love that The reduction in the fine lines. So you know obviously more plump and you get the skin and now benefits to. Yes it really interesting because almost up in taking another product internally coal called optima and. I'm really a little bit. Skeptical really about oldies. Because there's a lot of. I mean your products. There's yeah i mean your products really unique in that it. It's actually a great food source. Yes with the added. Benefit of all of these helping so familiar replaces like a chocolate bar and soft which is the best part of it. But other than you'll pd. Bytes there's like hundreds of different powders and potions and stuff like that. I'm going to be skeptical. A battle about the mid annoying to have to take all the time but anyway trona be really diligent with these other these other one and i have to say it's got collagen in it and i have to say i literally am noticing all those things that you said yep so they must be something in an honor how it works when you i guess the stomach acids don't kill it off yes so i think the hair is really interesting thing that we've noticed in our even my boyfriend. He has them every day. he's he could never grow. Beat he can kill me for this. He could never grow. Oh sounds like my kinda man. Deadlock via i'll lock a nas babyface on an automatic. He is growing a beard and it is so thick and he has to go get his haircut all the time. And i think it's a really interesting way to have a look at the way that this collagen the a lot of hype around it but it's it really gets results. It really does. Yeah like i even like. I have really noticed that myself. I can't say that about your part. Because i haven't had one every day you send you. Do you send some boxes to the office and they disavow winning one day. He's like a whole bunch of fox's but like they were eating so quickly that it's really interesting so other sorry. How long did you say wanna die long. Six weeks six weeks. I mean that's very easy to do. Yeah absolutely because it's a food. Food is having an okay. So what does it replies that it replaces chocolate. What else can it replace. Well so the reason why i wanted to be a food product. Was i so much money and time getting probiotics and captials having my powders in the morning. And then if. I used to travel a lot outside of code. And i couldn't take all of these tap full-time job so i know this morning. I've taken b twelve. But i have literally and some grain powders and i've still got six more things to do before i go to bed and but it's very easy for me to grab chocolate bar an eight that at four o'clock on it. Yeah yeah and then. I'd be going and buying these products that had dates. Which were hidden suga with my history of being insulin resistant. I needed to find a lower shirl tentative stopping making my own products at hyman my snacks so the whole thought process. Was you know. I've got tons of friends. That moms that a busy all the time. They want something easy. That just looks off to them but they don't have to worry about it so for me having just replaces that little snack. The you want to have when you're craving sweets or lollies try and have a beauty by you. Go to one eight grams of shogo. The sugar content. When you've got a collagen so you've got a lot of collagen bows out there. That have deitz in them. And so i'm not against deitz by all means. I love a good to get pudding but when you've got a high sugar content and collagen product. You actually don't absorb the collagen. Your body absorbs sugar so it favors the sugar. Absorption rather than the collagen so. That's something that was really important to us. When we're creating the product is so you paying high money for these collagen blah that you would actually be absorbing the collagen. We'll that's not very good isn't nar see that and that what you just said is an alert people. Just do that because it tastes better and people buy but the problem is what gives collagen baas bad. Yeah of people will eat them and say off notice any any difference and there's certain strains of collagen oh not strains but certain forms of collagen so you want something. That is a hydrolyzed collagen with a low molecular white. So your body can start absorbing it quick so if you're just gelatin you not going to get the same results as hydrolyzed collagen. So there's a certain method the why they break down the collagen and things like that. So i think that that's my biggest goal is just to educate you know if you don't want to buy my product that's fine but let me educate you about why you should be buying certain types of collagen. So you're not wasting your money. Actually there is a hydra l- li- he say. Hydrolyzed collagen with That actually like a tape. Gi yet listed one that someone had recommended me years ago when i was asking about it. So that kinda gave me that confidence that it's obviously that taught college. It's the right type. Were a serious taught. That must do something if was able to be listed if it was listed for fine lines or something like that but anyway. I didn't end up finishing that tab again. The reason i didn't finish the top because it's too hot to remember to go and grab the juice and then what are you putting it in an coffee and by the time i've had my six coffees in the morning off riccarton to put my college in the absolutely but you know what i mean. Everyone's busy yeah. You can't have front of mind every day. You know to look after yourself which is a shame. But it's just the way it works so i think that having that convenience everyone's gotta eight. Yeah that's exactly girls. Got eight right okay. So let's so they're the buzz. They're amazing you are an incredible product develop. I think it's probably. I mean it's probably the best way anyone can have their collagen but will move off that now onto let you because Because you are incredible in your own right now. You have got a massive following on instagram. Absolutely massive and i fully. You and i was really sad. Because i've been watching you and i saw that picture that e posted that you come out of hospital actually had no idea. He had a she had a. She got a hospital operations and then still be able to organize nourish off to get their deliveries of these products. And also i'd love to talk to us about what you're going through. Yeah wow if journey. I have had fatility struggles and i've recently been diagnosed with endometriosis. So it all really started january loss. I was i had a hatred topic pregnancy. So it was an ectopic and also viable pregnancy. What does that mean uterus. Agila location pregnancy. Wow so miscarried in my also this is just a trigger warning for anyone that todd facility. Struggles yes. I miscarried and i thought that was it. I'd had two miscarriages before. And i thought that that was sort of you know i came. Maybe we need to start looking into the swim carrying. But i kept on having a lot of pain on my left side when i thought something was wrong and i kept on going up to the hospital like nothing's wrong with schedule. It looks like you've got ceased miscarried. Maybe start to look at mental health. Plans blah blah blah blah blah and. I was just in my god. I knew that something was wrong. You always know yourself to absolutely not you need to scan me. There's something going on. I had shoulder hip pain which apparently is classic to have an topics on topic is a pregnant senior flow paean shoob and i started feeling lightheaded and my partner was meant to be going away to bali. And he's like this. Get you checked out. One more time and i was like yeah i need to go in and get checked out the hospital again to me away and then i said okay. Just let me go to scan. Can places brought me a script for a scan. It was over the weekend. Just something doesn't feel right. And so i went. It wasn't over the weekend. It was light on thursday night. And then on friday or something. I can't remember. And i went in to go get a scan and she's just just wait a minute. Let me just come back and someone else came in. Don't you hate that when that happens. It's like oh my gosh what's going on. And then she's like look. Whiffed is called the hospital. We can get you an ambulance or right up there because my partner was packing i drive. It's probably not that much. Like i've had doctors telling me for a month but nothing's wrong with me so then i went up to the hospital. And they're like kay and it was completely different. They were very worried. So i've got straight you know fast tracked into the emergency ward but then the pain just kept on getting worse. So months went on. So i went home i recovered. I went and saw a psychologist. I've been diagnosed with ptsd. I also have pay. Tsa from childhood trauma whole fun kettle of fish goodness and then it was just. I kept on leaving with chronic pain and so i went to an ivy f specialist. And he's like oh it looks like you. Your uterus is stop to your ovary from surgery. Cheers co what. Do i do this. This sort of solution was just safe. You can fall pregnant. And then it hopefully should resolve this pelvic pain. I couldn't pregnant for months then. I finally went to a surgeon. And he's like okay. Well let's get for surgery and by this time carbon had literally just hit this is. This is where i saw you on instagram. Isn't that that's right okay. Yup yup and i had been living with chronic pain and when you say chronic pain what does that mean yes. I think you've gotta have chronic pain for nine to twelve months for them to cause all so every day you're waking up and do you need to take painkillers. Yep so i was. taking sebei. bay are was taking. So around my period of your. I'd get really really intense. Pain period type pain on my and my back so it'd be taking strong. Painkillers is I beginning a shop pain on one side. I was doing acupuncture to try and relieve it. I was extremely bloated. And what i now know is something's going on during this surgery. That's triggered and assists a so. You didn't have these before. I never have period pain before all white. And even in the surgery nights there's this no indicators was found in january loss g so they would have been able to save this endometriosis of growth. Okay if they had seen in the surgery. So we've it's a bit we'd case and the question marks still out you know. I've never had symptoms of endometriosis. that differently. What you've gone. Yes so i ended up. Finally i was booked into have surgery but then carpet put everything on because i was a category two. I wasn't dying granted. That's fine so we finally got into surgery three months gar and what was meant to be an hour you know simple surgery to unsticking ovary uterus older. That sounds terrible. They found in a matriarch assists riddled throughout my body. So they had to. It was a long surgery to remove it all. And now i look back at it and i can't believe that i was putting out with that pain for so long and i just had no idea and to heavy feel now then look i do. I'm still recovering. But i don't pay have pain and so you'd have to take painkillers everyday. My period i still get quite back pain but they said that that's common for a couple of monica surgery but it's just. I'm really sad that i had to leave that life for so long. And then it really shines light onto this whole misconception about matriarch system by period pain and you know to have a bad painful period. It's not normal. And my first point of coal recommendation would be to go an investigator you know you might have a hormone issue. You might have got issue that might be something underlying but if you go and see alternative therapist or g pay and you still have this. Painful period could be your. You need to get checked out. Lie it's yeah don't put up with k. to have painful periods and it's not okay to be severely. I look six months pregnant for a long time. And i'm still extremely bloated now. It's just not a normal seemed to have leaf lifelock this and so. It's really frustrates me. I think it's it takes the average woman to be diagnosed with an matriarch ten years to be diagnosed because people just i think women just put up with it. We think it's normal and then also we don't talk about it but people don't talk about it we don't know how much pines pain yup and j just on the pill. Yeah going. i would've. That's what they would have said to you right then. You wouldn't have a period. And then i was on the pill for over ten years and then i went off at because i wanted to start. A family and seamlessly came off air. I got my period within twenty eight days Very lot very fine. And then so. That's why i'm like why they must have an auto response to have triggered such trauma in my life constantly being told that it was all in my head makes resources side the fact that some women have to go through life thinking that period pains normal. It's because people say i've got period pine but when we say that it just means we just got a little bit of cramping on day one. We mean we're in pine. So if you're if it's more than that you need to get that checked out pain constantly. And you've gone and explored alternative. Therapies are amazing acupuncturists and true paths which. I know you're all about yeah. It's just opened my eyes up to have you tried acupuncture. I do acupuncture. Oh because i went through a year and a half of acupuncture every week for for the stress actually and also for cosmetic reasons. I'm not gonna lie That i found it the most incredible incredible medical sort of experience i've ever had. Yep i love. I love acupuncture i to stay the most incredible woman and yeah. It's it's really helped me a lot. And how 'bout so where are you now. Then trying to get pregnant and fisher It's front of mind for me. Obviously i really want to have a little baby. Don't know why won't you. When i've got a business a new business launching and i've got this business i if i can get through twelve months of chronic chronic pain nothing out of the bed for some days but still running a business and still being an amazing stockists. I know i can do it. So yeah we. We are exploring. Ivf and other alternative medicine right. Yeah and so. What is the operative process. Have you looked into that. Yeah that process like do you need to take a lot of hormones for that yes sir. It's just amazing. I'm such an advocate for alternative but science is really cool on. Oh totally like absolutely. Yes if if you need science. Take the science. It shouldn't always be your first option. That's all that's why. I wanted to give myself a few months trying after the endometriosis being removed and i've had a few meetings appointments meetings appointments with these doctors. I mean it's pretty rigorous. it's pretty intense. I've got a few friends that have been through. Ivf and they sort of you know my little. Cheer squad on the sideline telling these actually what's going to happen but yeah it's pretty pretty involved now. A lot of hormones. A lot of stimulation of acre travels just law. That is just that incredible. How women We will do anything to get to get pregnant and we will do anything. Armada of to how we will. You just saw me before with my door. Hell we will do anything for. i think. Women are pretty magical people. Yep yep so funny. I had to get thirteen balls of blood taken out. The other day took a fire. My boyfriend's like what are you doing. Just kinda remind march. All the shit storm went through to get to get them. I took a photo of my caesarian on our can't find that anywhere. I'm really disappointed. I've gone through all my way before. Like you know. I find stuff but keeping it because i really wanted to show my little. What what i went through i said mama said brush you tate a look what i went through for you. Brush them and so much over sharing so much personal personal staff as well. And i'm so grateful. So grateful for women like you that do share your journeys because it normalizes so many things and otherwise we internalize and so. How do you decide like how much to to shake. You've got a lot of followers than how do you know what to hold back on an arm and i've been book myself. So how. how do you know when is too much. I don i. It's definitely a fine line. I mean i had two miscarriages before. I started speaking about my pregnancy losses in my pregnancy struggles. And i just. I'm guided by my god. Yeah one day. I wake up and i was like you know what one in four women experience miscarriage. Why don't i say that on social media. They don't just not discussed it's not disgusting. Thank you know it's more and more being spoken about. Which is amazing but i felt so isolated during my first two pregnancy losses. That i knew that sh- something needed to be done. If i had one if i got through to one woman that was going through a pregnancy loss my job done and so i'm just got it by my god. You know there's a lotta. This still got childhood trauma from but i've i don't speak about that because i'm still processing. I still go to therapy every week. It's just part of my life. But i think it's my responsibility to use my platform in a way to encourage women to speak their truth and do you heat from women all the time. Yeah that have just gone through similar things or having pain of lobster pregnancy. it's i get thousands a day a bit. It really breaks my heart and i once i put it out into the universe last year i was bombarded with women and i found it incredibly draining test dot with because you've repricing over is i'm really. I'm processing their trauma. But it's it's now where i've worked through that. And i use it as a tool to strengthen their voice and my voice and most people aren't looking for advice they just want to share this story and that's the most important thing if people stop speaking about it more going to help process this. You know this loss and this grieving process and do you think. That's probably one of the positives of social media. Because i find social media love social media. Oh don't get me wrong. I love being able to share ed products and and and findings. We people you're able to help people through social media. But also when i went through a stage where i really had to follow a lot of people that just made me feel like i was fat and ugly and old and I was literally thinking every day. I kind to get you know. Because i've had obviously no work done very obvious but i keep thinking yeah need to get you know just to get rid of this lawn and then and i'm not good enough and that actually the thing for me that that made since sharing i think that the thing with me and the made my confidence be okay with the way i look and all of those things in the way i speak is because always think all well bug that auditor. Massive business season isn't that crazy so even me right so like being very successful personally like on paper and yes and a lot. I even go through social media in these young. I think god on fat and ugly. I'm just like not good enough. And then a do have to stop and remind myself. That's not good. That is not good at all. And so i dunno identified. You're you're in that space. How do i have a big when it comes to social media if you start feeling bad about yourself or someone doesn't like you up. Yeah and follow all mute them if you can't on follow them so you know pregnancy announcement do trigger me. Oh my gosh. They would riot. That was so a lot of my friends. Just mute them. While i'm going through it. The mute button on instagram heaven but the body image is a huge pace. And tell that for you then because you will sign you going through a little bloating and stuff because you would any person take yellows during my journey in my and obvious is you're going to be putting on white with obvious again when you get pregnant and then it's going to be very hard to still can't get rid of moore stomach so i was really down the other day because my jeans went feeding them and things like that and i had to really pull myself out of this spar because i was on instagram and i saw this beautiful woman who is just given birth and she's literally in a bikini two weeks later just looking like jessica donahue that he is because i've just had to follow and i'm like good on you and empowerment yet but i'm sitting. He got haven't even had a child yet. I'm feel are can't even fit into my pants. But i had to really pull myself out of it because look at what my body is done despite everything in chronic of your health home with they wish they ruptured cube with an topic pregnant. And you drove yourself home and you didn't pull over on the software and that is incredible and so i think it's just about taking a deep breath and on following the toxic people. I don't mean toxic if they're being toxic to you if you're getting these toxic thoughts. Instagram is a very warped view of reality. And i think that it's it's my duty to to portray what real life actually is. And there's some amazing accounts out there that to show. The shit stole three kids on four one of my friends. You know it's just about showing this. Amy torah donahue. Follow very funny shot at me. She's got the most funniest you know. She's very funny but she's just like he's sheet bought beautiful and cd's shape. And so i think it's just about being true to yourself but it's so hard you've just got to be proud of your body and nourish your body through you know food and nutrition and be kind to your body and be kind to yourself and also i think you'll remember that everyone is really unique and we're lucky to be here when you think about how hard it is like to even where you stop from and just to be here is is a miracle and what tom to be alive as well like a no koby aiden has it been a pretty shia but actually looking back up and spending a lot of time on instagram. Actually looking at history and stuff and the like you know when. Paula was hearing all those things and pretty lucky. We are now. You know. it's an quietening credible talk. I imagine being locked up being able to go out and not having net flicks. Yep oh hell right. Yes so. I've binged so much so i'll have run out of podcast. Listen to one of run out of netflix. Shows to watch have you watched yellowstone very good. He's it this. There's a neat. I'm obsessed at the moment with this. I'm listening to a podcast. That's talking about a show in america. I'm going to look at how i can get called love roller but i'm obsessed with like the whole science behind women falling in love with scammers. Oh yeah respondent. really. I'm ninety crime. Duty john it just like i just wanna watch dirtyjohn everyday. Yeah yeah i think it's. Everyone is on their journey. And you've just got to embrace the shit storm that you get thrown at you. sometimes lets. let's talk exercise as well. What do you do for a because i've got. I've always had huge issues with energy levels and fatigue. I've literally spin on. I haven't had to go to the office with our law. I've spent way too much time on the couch purring bed. And so how 'cause you too low impact shortly low impact because you've had surgeries and gun. What do you do. Is it just pilates. Y you've got that a fluid form pilates that you can do. I've got an amazing local studio. That does a lot of integrative sort of pilates I'm a big walker. I've got two sausage dogs that have to walk all the time So yeah i would love to be going and doing a heat class and jumping around and doing boxing at the moment. And i've just got to take it easy. I went and saw an amazing women's physio who doesn't internal physio. Okay tell me about that. Okay so i feel like this is something. Women need to know k. Tell me about the i do. I need to not. does that. mean. I don't have to exercise into it. Teaches you about knowing so a lot of my friends know about it and a lot of my friends. Don't know about it. So i was put onto it for endo so i have a hyperactive. Overactive active pelvic floor muscle. So i'm constantly on because i was constantly in pain so it's called closer usa tainting up. Yes it's literally an internal physio where women are incredibly lucky to be able to have access to your internal muscles through the vagina. Quite literally and those these vcr's out there that specialize in helping to release muscle tension helping to look at prolapse to help it looking at off to give birth and my way of living has completely being turned on. Its head because i'll be sitting in the car driving and to. Oh i'm so tense. And i just have to relax and it's just completely changed my life and just i've noticed i've started turning up on my abs more that i'm actually relaxing and being able to contract and relax and contract and relax. It's just fascinating. Well so you just exercises and you just do them in the call. Yeah to a degree and then it's just going in saying that. The woman that i say she's very much like i only want you to come see me a couple of times so i can teach you how to move on so something like you know you constantly going back. But yeah pope. women's physique pelvic law massage very interesting. Well that sounds really interesting. We'll have to linked to that in the shards mind-blowing. We'll look forward to the person who's having to do that race issue and my shy nights at the office absolutely fascinating and could talk to you all day. Is there anything of gotten to ask you wanted to talk about. I think i've got an exciting business launching. We will be all online with you guys and tell me about that. What can you say about your because this is one thing i'll tell you this is one thing that was entrepreneur. Okay there is. No such thing is just launching a business and then moving on rye. It's like addictive. And so i. Of course you would have more flavors and more products and more businesses. So what can you tell me. Well i have a problem. I was about twelve hours out of surgery recently. And i came up with a business idea. I wrote a business plan. Came up with brand names and concepts and formulations. I have a sick problem. Where i just don't switch off. And that's just cold entrepreneurship. Yup very not launching that yet. But i have gone through my my life after about twenty living with illness and i truly believe that a lot of it's linked to chemicals that we put on bodies. Obviously yes. yeah. And so. I especially going through you know pregnancy losses and going through. Vf certain products. That i can't use. And i wanted to create a brand that focuses on cena and out of beauty and so we have a very exciting brand watching. That's about embracing your your daily ritual by looking osteo yourself taking five minutes out of your day to put your skin on take a deep breath being mindful and just taking that five minutes of to slowing down to really just recharge off yourself and i think that's what women think they want to do and i love to do that but in all reality also busy so it's really about trying to implement this daily ritual. Yeah a lot of brands trying to do that old. But no one deny old yet. No one's nio the an outer beauty as ritual as well as a me time ritual. And so i've seen bits and pieces. That would be so amazing for you just to grab like all of the beats luck. Just do one whole thing. Because that's that is really missing like you can kind of build it yourself. But we don't have time to build it ourselves. Yep and sorry. Habitual beauty will be launching. I don't wanna say date because so back behind summa summa summa. It'll be something. I'm truly passionate about what you put on your skin and what you ate and i've seen firsthand the results that you get from internal beauty and also external beauty. Sorry i'm i'm just really passionate about sharing products that i love and products. That work right. Yes so the fluff year. That goes on. And i've tried ever skin care brand under the sun and there are some incredible brands out there. So it's not about copying them. It's just about finding myron my little spot. Absolutely yes really interesting about that. Because with the organic and the natural beauties especially in skin care. Because you think will hang on. Hasn't been done before but the reality is you think about the mainstream categories and i mean i grew up working at revlon and all oles mainstream brand and that'd be thousands and thousands and thousands of new skin care by brands and competitive. Then all the time so this a huge room still for so many more natural brands out the because i mean we pretty much talk all of them and we could easily do ten times the amount actually so hurry up and bring that out. I can't wait. I'm very indecisive with some branding. will it be. Will it be part of the same umbrella as as beauty bites and like different the way secure rumble is. My name is my business. Name and crumbled. Is you know we want to create these beautiful brands on crumbled. So beauty bought sa- quite a you know it's a a low cost product that you know. I want mass people to try and to change the way that they think about snacking and then habitual beauty. Is you know it's got active ingredients. It's a bit more refined. So you know different brands. I sort of. I want people to wear it and have result yet quickly. It's time to go in to see results. After six months people want to see instant fast results such a busy world that would constantly engaged constantly switched on. We want results. You know fast. So i really wanted to leave that.

It's very broad category of being on nutrition Were trying to help solve this mystery or not even mystery okay. I guess but it sort of seems like a mystery because when you ask one expert so the next there's a Lotta dispute you know one person will say hey you need more vegetables next guy will say hey vegetables. Those aren't even healthy. They're not even digestible. The next person will say. Hey what do you do. Need all me carcinogenic. What's going on your you know? Some people say the CARBS will cause all these problem. Yeah and it gets to be it confuses a lot of right and so some people just Even though they know the answer lies in the middle which is almost always the case they just kind of put put their hands up and say I don't know what's going on so America continues to get To get heavier to get fatter to get t to be more and more Unhealthy I guess you'd say what do you think is the number one thing that we're facing Trying to get over some of that. Do you think it's really. Is it really just the food and I know that you want people to you know. Have the food down and exercise and everything in combination But if you had to kind of pick one or the other do you think the food is probably the main. Yeah Yeah I mean. Of course there's changes in hormonal status because of the high stress lifestyle you know nutrient deficiencies of course thyroid problems. uh-huh environmental toxins definitely affect the body in those ways in terms of optimizing weight. But when it comes to obesity and when it comes to the obesity epidemic we have to start with the obvious the obvious overconsumption of food over consumption of processed foods and that is really really essential. And when you look at different experts we all have our different thing right. Protein is my thing I'm a low carbohydrate person I think animal based proteins are exceptional. You ask another guy and like you said you know you should be eating vegetables or you should be on a vegetarian Vegan Diet. There's something thing to be said for bio individuality and I think that once you find what works for that person it is truly exceptional right so some people have seen do incredibly well on a key tonight so even if you do control calories some people do better on a higher carbohydrate and and some people do better on a lower carbohydrate and really kind of defining what that is right and when a person finds that then it tends to result in Much more advanced health and wellness for that person right and then have you seen this in your practice. Like if you're GONNA and a half the carbohydrates than that maybe Something else has to give somewhere else like so if you have carbohydrates maybe you got to eat less fat and if you don't have the carbohydrates may be have to eat more fat At the end of the day calories count no matter what people say. The calories are metabolized differently. Yes if it comes from protein which has a high thermal fact versus if it comes from fat or if it comes from carbohydrates if that being said if you control for calories people will do better on different macro nutrient breakdown my patients I tend to start them on what people would consider a higher protein diet. I would consider an optimal protein diet. And you know I mean that's kind of where I start them because in my practice I always measure skeletal muscle mass. I always measure body fat. I'm always tracking Blood Glucose levels breath and a whole bunch of other test right. Does the individuality seem to come in the car in the carbohydrates more so than anywhere else like Put most people on on you know. Most people are on the standard American Diet. Were there Eating half of their body weight in grams of protein a day you bump up their protein. You probably kind of almost see instant results and then the carb is probably where you see the. Yes individuality right. I say you adjust their car. You get their DR protein stable. You adjust their carbohydrates and definitely their body composition proves right so yeah so another thing that the protein I'll have you explain it rather What are some things the protein is really doing for somebody? Like what are you know the top two or three things that it's doing for somebody to help them we'll number one. It allows you to maintain in your muscle mass right so we know that you need a certain amount of protein distributed throughout the day to help maintain that muscle mass right and especially as you age. So there's something called hold antibiotic resistance. That happens once puberty ends and as say forties right. You need to have a certain bullets amount which is where that two and a half grams of loose scene. Which is one of the branch chain amino acids from Have that distributed throughout the day in a certain amount and it's really a central And Protein is the foundation addition for everything so really is the black sheep of the macro nutrient family because it has a face. It's incredibly emotional for people straight. So I think it's really skewed the science because when you mix emotion with facts it becomes very challenging. It's an interesting thing because it's the one that gets talked about the least everyone shouting about car. You know high I fat and everyone's GonNa shout about these different things and they're not really talking that much about the protein right but Correct me if I'm wrong. The protein You know it's four calories per program but it doesn't even get a simulated that way correct well it gets a simulated that way when you think about protein you think about it it is it is more more challenging for the body to digest absorb right because you have to get rid of the nitrogen group and with higher protein it increases fatty acid oxidation. There's many many things that protein does help feed immune cells has glued amine. Right you generate arginine for blood pressure so when you kind of get your foundation as with anything anything foundation in life right. I think about things in a dualistic way so you think about life foundation and then you think about the lifestyle foundation so when the foundation is in place in that foundation for almost everybody should be protein. I mean I can't even imagine someone that it's not unless they have a illness. Can we have too much protein routing though 'cause like we've been told long they can only digest so much per serving not so you digest all the protein intake whether there's benefit from going from thirty to seventy no but you digest all of it. And they've done studies up to three grams per kilogram per her body weight profound body weight and they haven't seen any negative effects. I have meals sometimes where I I probably have a hundred hundred grams of protein in the meal. And you're still here. I'm I'm still here until they find the body. Can you handle it unless you have kidney disease or you have some kind of issue where you can't handle the data per teen. There should be no reason what happens is I'm like I. I just think I gotta keep adding protein to everything and then by the time I sit down and actually look at what I'm eating because I'm eating with my eyes rather than like really paying attention to what's going on I'm like Oh my God is by like eighty ninety hundred sitting here in front of me right. Sounds awesome new spray salacious. How much are you eating now? You know I I. I'm very guilty of not counting anything. I don't count anything. How about you do you count stuff? I have an idea and now I'm probably at two hundred grams for the bodybuilding stuff. He wanted me get like three fifty a day and I think I just ended up there. 'cause I eight six times a day and you know got you know. I don't know sixty grams of protein per meal or whatever whatever that math ends up being but somewhere in that neighborhood I messed around with all different kinds of stuff though over the years. You know some of the recommendations from Charles and some recommendations I've gotten from different bodybuilders and stuff I've done you know to You know double my body way in grams approach. I've done five hundred grams of protein. A day I've done all kinds of different things and I like to eat but I don't have a crazy appetite And that'll that'll come and go depending on what. I'm doing the more accurate I am with my food food. Usually my appetite will go up a little bit Probably just because everything I'm eating is healthier my body's probably regulating everything on but better but Yeah normally just probably I probably eat about three hundred grams of protein a day about two fifty or so to forty somewhere not neighborhood so yeah I mean so again. I come from the perspective that if you're going to have calories majority of calories should come from protein whether there's a difference between one point eight grams per kilogram bursts is two point four grams per kilogram to game. You know profound body weight or airport kilogram body weight to generate muscle. I don't know if there's a difference. I mean you could probably get away with one point eight just as well as two point four but probably good to try different things at different times a year and depending on your training and everything else right it's true.

It stands for branch chain amino acids if you are a regular gym goer Then you've probably heard of this term so it's a supplement and i thought what provoked to talk about this specific topic. Today's episode is my sister. I saw her earlier today. She came to visit me at the house and she goes. Oh my god you know like there's a whole bunch of black friday deals going on right now which is crazy that it starting this early. I'm not necessarily mad about it. But i just remember when i was younger. You know being really excited. Thursday night to go with my family to go shopping like six in the morning but now a black friday. You know what open thanksgiving night thanksgiving day. Now they're doing sales even a week in advance so as just kinda crazy to me. How they're just trying to force us to spend all this money a week before the actual black friday right. But anyway before i go onto that long tangent my sister was telling me about the specific This specific brand woman's best and she was like they're having a sale on bbc. A as as a guy about three tubs. And we started going on this conversation about you know the flavors what it does for our bodies and why i actually used to be ca. As and why. I no longer take them so. I'll also let you guys now. Why i personally do not take be as and why i personally do not think they are extremely extremely crucial to your diet. And fitness needs and this goes for any supplement the you decided to take sediment vitamin my feelings towards this category is aw the same. All the way through supplements and vitamins are merely there to help assist you in areas that you're missing or lacking in right so that doesn't mean that they're going to be doing all the work for you. You are able to get all of the essential nutrients and vitamins from food. Okay from food like there's food that contains bc as however. This is for those who already have a well-balanced diet exercise regularly but want extra boost Then that's when supplements can help fill in a void or help boost a certain area of your diet that needs assistance. So that's the disclaimer. I always like to say whenever we do talk about. Supplements supplement are helpful. But they are not needed. Okay that even includes protein powder. And i'm a huge advocate for protein powder I mean i work with the protein company through instagram. So trust me like i promote this up browse will say like if you're able to gain it from food than do so i know myself. I need that extra help. Because i'm not able to get all the is central proteins through just my diet So that's my those are my feelings towards You know not just as but in general supplements as a whole so. Let's now dive a little more into what exactly are branch chain amino acids bc as there are twenty different amino acids guy makeup the thousands of different proteins in the human body. Right so nine of the twenty are considered essential amino acids meaning. They cannot be made by your body. A must be obtained through your diet of the nine essential amino acids three are the branch chain amino acids. bci as which include lucy seem. I salute seen unveiling okay. Branch chain refers to the chemical structure of bc a as which are found in protein rich foods such as eggs meat and dairy products. The are also a popular dietary supplement. Sold primarily an powder form which i think this is what most people are familiar with To be honest. I don't think that many people are fully aware that bc a as can be found in food because we're so used to being sold the supplements and you know powders being thrown in our faces to make everything much more convenient. The powder form is really all that familiar most familiar with right when it comes to. Bca's so in a nutshell. That's what branch chained. I mean acids are now we're going to get into some of the proven benefits of bca's and the first one is increase in muscle growth. And i believe this is actually one of the most popular uses of bbc as is to increase muscle growth nowadays. Everyone's chasing the gains girls are trying to achieve slim thickness small ways. Big legs big booty all that so many of them decided to take. Bci as in order to increase that muscle growing process the bc. A luccin activates earn pathway. In the body the stimulates muscle protein synthesis which in the process of making muscle and one study. People consumed a drink with five point six grams of as after the resistance workout um had twenty two percent greater increase in muscle protein synthesis compared to those who consumed a placebo. Drink that being said. This increase protein synthesis is approximately fifty percent less than what was observed in other studies where people consumed away protein shake containing a similar amount of. Bca's way protein contains all the essential amino acids needed to build muscle therefore while bci as can increase muscle protein synthesis. They can't do so maximally without the other. Essential amino acids such as those found him way protein or other complete protein sources. So like i said in the beginning of this episode. you can't fully rely on. Bci as to help you achieve those gains right. If you are someone who's mangle right now is to achieve muscle growth hypertrophy. Then you're going to achieve that by eating in a calorie surplus and bca's can assist and helping you reach that calorie count right so again. Bc as they can play an important role in building muscle. However your muscles require all the essential amino acids for the best results and they only contain three so this is why you can't solely just rely on wine supplement to do all the work for you right and what just be too easy that way and that would also just take the fun out of your fitness joining your health journey. Like i feel like that's the whole point of like staying healthy and being healthy is like trying different things seeing what works for you. What does not always just a quick fix. Usually quick fixes don't lead to long term sustainable long lasting sustainable Goals so you guys. We're going to very brief break right now and when we come back more here at the jess mc healthfulness podcasts. Are you looking to learn more about the latest trends from the fitness world. Are you confused by all the different trends. That are out there. The gmc fitness podcast is the place for you. The gs mc fitness. Podcast is the place to come for people of all skill and interest levels. Join us as we explore the latest trends in the fitness world. Does that new exercise really work. Should i try yoga. Whatever your question. Chances are good. You'll find an answer on the gmc fitness podcast Was up y'all welcome back to. I'm see health and wellness podcast. We're gonna continue on the conversation of the many benefits of b. c. a. As so we first talked about how the most popular use of vca as is for muscle growth. it's also great for decreasing muscle. Soreness aka dumps delayed onset muscle. Soreness some research suggests bca's as can help decrease muscle soreness after a workout. It's not uncommon to feel sore a day or two after a workout especially if your exercise routine his new this soreness is called delayed onset muscle soreness which develops twelve to twenty-four hours after exercise and can last up to seventy two hours while the exact cause of domes or delayed onset muscle. Soreness is not clearly understood. Researchers believe it's a result of tiny tears and the muscles after exercise. Right the fibers be ca as have been shown to decrease muscle damage which may help reduce the lane and severity of domes. Several studies show that. Bci as decrease protein breakdown during exercise and decreased levels of creating can nas which is an indicator of muscle damage and one study people who supplemented with as before squat exercise experience reduced and muscle fatigue compared to the placebo group. Therefore supplementing with as especially before exercise may speed up recovery. Time because no one wants to be you know. Dealing with muscle soreness more than twenty four hours. Honestly you're dealing with a muscle. Soreness for more than twenty four hours. You probably are not Progressively loading correctly You know not drinking enough water eating enough protein eating and nutrient dense foods on when you don't do all of those things that leads to a longer lasting domes and like i said no one wants to be in pain and feeling sore and tight and stiff for more than a day right after a workout. Like if you're doing it if you're feeling sore after a workout for more than like two days evaluate what it is. You're missing in your routine. So are you drinking enough water. Are you eating enough protein. Are you a getting enough sleep. Sleep is very very important. That's when your body is resting and recovering And in that case that's when bc as can Would be great supplement with bci as which again can decrease muscle soreness by reducing damage in exercise Stressed the muscles. So that's the second proven benefit of a is the third kind of goes hand in hand. With what i was just mentioning about reducing exercise fatigue. Just as as may help decrease muscle soreness from exercise. They may also help reduce exercise induced fatigue. Everyone experiences fatigue and exhaustion from exercise. At some point how quickly you tired depends on several factors including exercise intensity and duration environmental conditions and your nutrition and fitness level. Your muscles use as during exercise causing levels in your blood to decrease when blood levels of bci as decline levels of the essential amino acid tryptophan in your brain increase. In your brain tryptophan is converted to serotonin a brain chemical that is thought to contribute to the development and fatigue during exercise in two studies participants who supplement it would be as improve their mental focus during exercise which is thought to result from fatigue reducing affect of bca's however this decrease in fatigue is unlikely to translate to improvement and exercise performance. So to summarize what. I just said as may be useful in decreasing exercise induced fatigue. But they're unlikely to improve exercise performance. Okay so it's not going to make you run faster jump. Higher dribble better now is just simply there to decrease Exercise induced fatigue number four the fourth grade benefit of as is a helps prevent muscle wasting okay or break down and let me get a little more in depth with what i mean by that. Muscle proteins are constantly broken down. Rebel aka synthesized the balance between muscle. Protein breakdown and synthesis determines the amount of protein in muscle muscle wasting or breakdown occurs when protein breakdown exceeds muscle protein synthesis muscle. Wasting is a sign of malnutrition occurs with chronic infections. Cancer periods of fasting and as a natural part of the aging process in humans. Bca's account for thirty five percent of the essential amino acids found in muscle proteins. The account for forty percent of the total amino acids required by your body. Therefore it's important that the as and other essential amino acid a replaced during times of muscle wasting to halt it or to slow progression. Several studies support the use of the a supplement for inhibiting muscle protein breakdown. This may improve. Health outcomes and quality of living and certain populations such as the elderly and those with wasting diseases like cancer so again taking bc aa supplements can prevent the breakdown of protein in certain populations with muscle wasting the fifth and final benefit of taking bci as that will get into today. Is that a helps. Benefit people with liver disease be as may improve health and people with cirrhosis acrylic disease in which the liver does not function properly. It's estimated that fifty percent of people with cirrhosis will develop hypnotic instant philosophy which is a loss of brain function that occurs when the liver is unable to remove toxins from the blood whilst earned sugars and antibiotics are the mainstays of treatment for hepatitis or hypnotic and philosophy. Bci as may also benefit people suffering from the disease one review of sixteen studies including a hundred twenty seven people with hepatitis. Hep attic as if allopathy found that taking bc a supplement had a beneficial effect on the symptoms and signs of the disease but had no effect on mortality liver. Cirrhosis is also a major risk factor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. The most common form of liver cancer for which a supplements may also be useful. Several studies have shown that taking bc a supplements may offer protection against liver cancer and people with liver. Cirrhosis ask such scientific authorities recommend these supplements as a nutritional intervention for liver disease to prevent complications so to summarize. Bci supplements may improve the health outcomes of people with liver disease while also possibly protecting against liver cancer. So in a nutshell. Those are the fine main points fi main benefits of taking. Bca's branched chain acids right so again. Let me quickly review those in case you missed one The first the most popular use for it is for increasing muscle growth. The second for decreasing muscle soreness aka a dom. the third benefit is to reduce exercise fatigue. The fourth benefit is to prevent muscle wasting such as malnutrition and the fifth benefit. Is that a helps people with liver disease so and again. Those are five main points. of taking c. As the main benefits of this supplement can provide for you. So we're gonna to vary beer break right now and women come back. I'm going to share with you. Guys foods that are high and bc. A we'll be right back. Tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts. Listen close and here this out. See there's a podcast network that covers just about everything that you've been searching.

Follow us on facebook and twitter and download on itunes soundcloud and google. Play doc. Hey guys welcome back to gs mc health and wellness podcast. So we're not gonna be changing gears slightly and going to be talking about foods that are high. Nbc a as are so again. You don't always need to go to the vitamin store and buy the supplement. You're able to supplement with real raw foods. So again i just want to reiterate what exactly are branched chain amino acids so as are some of the twenty amino acids that make a pro team. They're released into your body when protein is broken down and each one serves its own purpose. Bca's are particularly beneficial for muscle growth. Okay and some sources in very general right now include meat and dairy products. But there's a lot more so for all of my vegan vegetarian Pesca -tarian people out there. Do not worry. We got some options so when creating a balanced diet the notion of having to add amino acids to the list of essential vitamins and minerals daunting fortunately according to a study published in the december two thousand eighteen issue of nutrients these amino acids are actually found in any and all foods that contain protein. In fact the average diet likely already provides enough. Pca sources thanks to their presence and many staple foods that contain protein. Some of the most abundant sources include salmon trout sardines poultry turkey breast and ground beef. So i already know thanksgiving's coming up next week. You are getting those as when you are china and into that turkey so that is just wonderful to hear So again those are animal based products if me is not a product usually consume or seafood be ca foods also include dairy products Such as milk yogurt and cheese. A beans lentils nuts grains and tofu and when it comes to meet the leaner the better. I'm sure most of us know this. Because leaner meats have a higher protein content than fattier cuts such as ham. Which i know will be in a lot of your thanksgiving tables next thursday. Similarly low fat dairy products are much better for protein intake than their fattier counterparts and are also more beneficial for health on the whole well animal products usually contain all twenty of the essential amino acids and plant based products may not include this entire group. And you don't have to eat meat to benefit from amino acids okay as long as you eat. A variety of plant based products your body will receive a sufficient amount of amino acids including branch chain amino acids i so. Here's a typical. The recommended dietary allowance of protein is about point. Eight grams per kilogram of weight. So to figure this out you guys are able to use an online protein. Calculator chuck the dietary information featured on food packaging for reassurance regarding her daily and take a vitamins and minerals and right there ill tell you you know if it contains. Loose scene is unveiling which again those are the three main inch essential amino acids that are found. Nbc ace so again. Protein is a hugely beneficial part of any diet but because of its abundance in a variety of foods it is rarely studied in any kind of detail again bc as our president all protein foods and these are great sources of protein that provide a murad of health benefits. Protein provides energy as well supporting your mood and cognitive function. Additionally protein not only helps with muscle growth but also helps build maintain and repair tissues cells and throughout your body so it is integral to everyone not just those were bodybuilders are frequent exercisers branch chain amino acids are particularly crucial and muscle growth because of their role in protein synthesis. However when protein enters a body it is broken down into twenty separate amino acids the all perform individual beneficial roles the three amino acids that make up the branch chain. I mean acids are losing. I salute seed and vaguely like i just mentioned lucienne and is selene. is losing are especially beneficial to muscle strength and growth. But i mean i also have an porn health functions for example the amino acid tripe defend aids and improved mood and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety by helping release serotonin which is a mood. Relating hormone further benefits include maintenance of hart house keeping the immune system strong aiding the respiratory systems over a health increase speed of recovery following exercise and so forth. A high protein diet is beneficial. Not only for its branch chain amino acid content but also for the many other amino acids absorbed following protein breakdown. I really hope you guys are still falling along here. Because i'm not done giving y'all other food sources. That are high nbc. Ace so like i said not only are be. Ca's found in protein supplements but they're also found in foods here so we mentioned about dairy products meat poultry those are the most abundant sources of as sei one. And now give you guys a serving size of each. And how many grams of be ca as comes with each serving size. You guys are able to get a better idea of how much is in each serving so for beef. Three and a half ounces of beef. You're going to be getting around. six point. Eight grams of ace for chicken breasts. Three and a half ounces. Five point eight grams of as way protein powder one scoop five point five grams of bci as same for soy protein powder once scoop five point. Five grams canned tuna three and a half ounces. We'll give you five point. Two grams of bca's salmon which is my personal favourite three and a half ounces of salmon's going to give you around four point nine grams of bci as turkey breasts. Three and a half ounces. Four point six grams. Two eggs will give you three point. Two eight grams of bci. Ace half cup of parmesan cheese. Four point five grams of bci as one cup of one percent milk. Oh give you two point two grams. bc as and lastly half-cup of greek yogurt will give you two grams of ace. So as you're able to tell many protein rich foods such as the ones i listed right now contain already high amounts of be as and if you consume enough protein in your diet be. Caa supplement unlikely to provide additional benefits. And this is really the main reason reason why myself do not take as i no longer take them. They sure do tastes good. I will say that they taste amazing. They're sweet you miss you. Miss a scoop in with water over is and it's really refreshing drink while you're working out like i. I usually take as while. I'm working out. But i just didn't really see how it was benefiting me i didn't really notice any changes within my body or mentally I felt like i was consuming enough through my diet so it was just kind of unnecessary for me to be buying additional pro- A powder when i was getting enough of it in my food film me and again this goes for like any supplement including protein powder protein powder is merely there to assist you to fill the void If you are not consuming enough protein and same thing goes for as and this is what. I was trying to tell my sister i was like. Oh i don't really feel like a does anything for me. Like i don't really need to take it. Like they taste good spent thirty dollars a tub just because something tastes good right so again. That's just my opinion You know of you have differing opinions and mine dot as i a okay. Hey you know each to their own but yeah. That's just my take on bbc. As and why i personally do not Take the supplement. That's not to say or try to minimize the benefits like the benefits are proven signs backed. But just for me for me personally not worth it for myself okay. So anyway we're gonna cut into a very brief break right now when we come back. We're gonna dive more into. Bca's branch chain amino acids explained after this commercial. Break the gsm see life unhappiness. Podcast takes you on a journey of exploration. We'll discuss tried.

You find. Podcasts just tie. Gmc in the search bar pack. What's up you guys. Welcome back to mc health and wellness podcast. So we're gonna dive straight into it. Branched chain amino acids explained as our form of essential amino acid that play a key part in the metabolism of muscle proteins which intern can aid with muscle development and muscle. Growth is mentioned. The three a. Are i salute. Invading loose scene in particular is vital to the stimulation of the molecule. Signaling process that leads to the synthesizing of muscle. Proteins protein synthesis is the biological process of how amino acids become protein. I so loosing works in a very similar way. It is predominantly used in the humane league of muscle tissue and increasing muscle endurance so it is popular among bodybuilders and athletes looking to increase their muscle mass in addition i so losing benefits energy production and helps the body restore itself following strenuous exercise making it ideal for people who are very active valen different is slightly different from its counterparts. There are various assumptions regarding the benefits of its supplementation including treating malnutrition following drug addiction. But more research is needed to confirm these results. Baleen is usually included a multivitamins alongside many other nutrients and should not be taken alone. Single supplementation of any amino acid can lead to an imbalance of nitrogen in the body which can cause a reduction and the effectiveness of metabolism and forced the kidneys to work harder in children. Single amino acid supplementation can stunt their growth and caused difficulties as they age so again just of fair warning here disclaimer. the branch chain acid baleen. Okay should never be used as a supplement and pregnant women or during breastfeeding. This can cause damage to the baby. So it's a big fat. No no stay away from baleen As a single supplementation right so with that we're going to kind of transition into some of the risks. The health risks of branch chain amino acids there are certain risks associated with branched chain amino acids and these ordinarily do not arise from deir dietary intake alone but it is important to be aware of the potential health risks associated with too much of any single amino acid in the body a study published in october two thousand seventeen and the journal on target attempted to a certain a link between bci circulation the body an increased risk of cardio metabolic disease which is a disease relating to the heart in certain diabetic conditions but performing tests on a group of people between ages. Twenty one and one ten. The study found that there was a quantifiable risk associated particularly In adults the risk did not appear as prevalent and the older demographic a further study published in the journal. Gye beatty's in july of two dozen eighteen found that increased levels of bbc a as increases the likelihood of heart failure and cardiovascular disease regardless of the of the subject even though obesity was initially theorized as a cause of the link between bci levels in heart disease however it is important to know that these results are based on serum bci a dietary intake which poses less of a threat due to how the body processes food still. It's important to avoid consuming. An excess of protein. A balanced diet was suppo- That supplies many vitamins and nutrients is key to good health and in my opinion the most sustainable way to do it. So let's now discuss. I think there's one of the most hotly debated topic surrounding bci as And it kind of goes hand in hand with what i talked about my last a monday episode. Three seventy seven about an above the anabolic window. Nutrient timing so a lotta people question wayne should you take. Bca's when is the most optimal time to take this settlement. Okay so right. Now we're going to take a closer look as to when take them. I want the most ideal And we're gonna supply this information with signed space evidence for you for one. Take a supplements. Alright so there's a little research comparing the benefits of taking dcaa's or other protein supplements at one time over another such as before exercise or after only one small preliminary study has compared the effect of taken a bci a supplement before exercise to take an after exercise in the study. Young men took ten grams of as before strengthening exercises for their non dominant arm. They experience less muscle soreness after exercise and lower blood markers of muscle damage than those who took the as after the arm exercise. The only other study available for comparison is the one that gave athletic man. Twenty five grams of protein isolate with which as we mentioned way protein also contains a and in this case twenty five grams. It supplied five point five grams of as Either right before right after the weight lifting workout for ten weeks in this study both groups had the same improvements and body composition and strength based on the available evidence. It's uncertain at this time. That makes a difference whether you take. Bci as before or after weight training bca levels in your blood peak thirty minutes after consuming the supplement but studies have yet to determine the optimal time to take them. Despite the long held theory that you have about forty five to sixty minutes. After exercise to get maximum muscle building benefit from consuming protein research suggests. This window of time may be as wide as five hours after exercise. Furthermore if you've eaten a meal or taking protein supplement one to two hours before exercise the timing of post exercise bc as or other protein supplements may be less important than if you exercise without recently eating such as in the early morning bca supplements are convenient enough that it's simple to consume them shortly before or after a workout feel. It makes a difference for you. So let's discuss be as during workout workout intra workout taking. Bca's during workouts has been studied a little and endurance training such as distance running and cycling when one hundred ninety three men taking part in a marathon were given sixteen grams of as during the event they didn't run any faster than men given a placebo. Additionally research and cyclists has failed to show an improvement and physical performance from taking bca's as during endurance exercise though the supplements may help reduce mental fatigue so all in all research to clarify The optimal time to take as is limited. A may not make much difference whether bc a supplement are taken before or after is and you may not need to time them precisely to support muscle building. All right so with that being said you guys over going into a very brief break right now and when we come back we're going to discuss other factors that may enhance c. A effectiveness will be right back. Are you tired of the same old news. Are you sick of the seemingly endless political spin and negatively the diaz mc. America's still beautiful.

Podcast we are now entering the final segment of today's show. And we're gonna end it with talking about other factors that may enhance effectiveness in a recent review of studies. Scientists found that three factors seem to be important for limiting exercise related muscle damage through bc. A supplements i. You may need to consume daily dose. Elise ninety one milligrams per pound of body weight for example. If you weigh one hundred sixty five pounds you will need to take a dose of at least fifteen grams of as daily second. You need to continue your b. C. a supplement regimen over the long term more than ten days to see significant muscle protective benefits. This also means taking the supplement every day instead of only on days that you exercise third how frequently you take. The supplement may be a factor in other words splitting your total daily dose and to a more doses such as before and after exercise may be beneficial. Lastly keep in mind that you need more than dcaa's to build muscle protein. There are six other essential amino acids you must consume so that your body can make protein does include and other sources of protein in your diet is crucial or is not just relying on bbc. Ace muscle protective benefits of. Bci as laments may be more likely if you take ninety one milligrams per pound of body weight daily including on non exercise days and may also help to split your daily b. c. a supplement. Intake into two or more doses. So here's the bottom line you kyw's bci. A supplements conveniently provide muscle supportive nutrients however scientists question whether these supplements offering advantage over food. Sources research that directly compares the benefits of as over other protein supplements. I one time over. Another is limited. Taking be ca as before or after exercise may be equally effective and providing muscle protection also. You may not need to time them. Precisely to support muscle-building getting an adequate does based on your body weight is essential as well as continuing to take them long term including non exercise days. A right does that make sense. You guys i hope it does And one more thing most people again get plenty of c. as through their diet supplementing a. Bci is unlikely to provide additional benefits. So before you go out and purchase an expensive tub of as I would really sit down and evaluate your diet right. See where you're kind of missing where you need to fill a void where it's necessary for you to Use a supplement. Right like a may not even be as you're missing now it may be really You know oh the nsa protein so just really make sure sit down that you really need this product because you may not and that's how i feel about it right so that's going to wrap up today's here at the gs.

Everyone could listen whatever topic they wanted whenever they wanted and wherever they might be well then dr. That's actually how. I found nutritional weight and wellness really casts. Tell us more. I was in graduate school and i thought well i probably need to be learning more about how people work with nutrition in the real world. And so i i got on i. Tunes and search nutrition and dishing up nutrition was the first thing that popped up after that. You guys were talking about classes and mendota heights and saint. Paul and i realized this company is in my backyard. I have to know more. Let's love it was the same. I was the same. I found the radio show in my first job as a dietitian at a nursing home and i was hooked when i heard it the first time. Well there. that's great so we've found you dr. You know you know when we think back about seventeen years. That's a lot of nutrition shows a whole lot of nutrition information that we shared over the last seventeen years. Know as i kind of think back. When i started dishing up nutrition my goal was to provide nutritional information that someone like. My mother could use to live longer and feel great as she got older. And that's what happened. So i really wanted people to learn and understand the information about lifestyle and nutritional choices that would support their wellbeing in. Oh now seventeen years later. I was thinking about seventeen years ago. All my friends are retiring but not me not yet so during the time of you know we are right now in the high stress time. So what i want to offer up to. People is a different way to think about food and nutrition. You know not. Only how food and nutrition will support your immune function but also your mental health in. It's really a challenge right now our mental health so we need to be eating everything possible to support brain health. I think and a lot of times. I don't think people have even connected that.

Love to share the power of nutrition back when i was completing my master's degree in nutrition. I don't think. I had a clear sense of how many people needed to hear this message and really going back to the basics of eating real food and now fast forward five or six years my husband he still says to me will. You can't pie all workbooks. He says if you're going to read books that they have to be fun books too. So i have a collection of that that i like to keep up on the research and likes to continue to challenge myself shelby. I do the same thing. I have a rotation. I think one of the common denominators with all of the nutritionists and dietitians at nutritional weight and wellness is we love to learn and we loved problem solve now with our show today. We want to help. People understand the relationship between poor blood sugar control and losing some of their memory and even contributing to things like alzheimer's disease. I teach the blood sugar connection day in and day out. I remind my clients. That blood sugar is the most basic biochemical connection to how you feel when your blood sugar levels drop that contributes to more. Cravey's your blood sugar levels directly. Reflect what you're putting in your mouth that's in. I don't know if all people with blood sugar issues like people that with type two diabetes. Connect that that you know. So we've said this before on dishing up nutrition but the food is on the end of your fork changes the inside of your body. It changes how you feel and so to keep it really simple. What you eat affects how you feel really what you're eating affects. The amount of glucose in your blood and your blood sugar level is directly connected to your dietary choices so essentially if you're eating too much sugar or too many processed carbohydrates that's gonna pop your blood sugar up and that high blood sugar contributes to damage that cell damage. But i'm kind of rambling here a little bit getting into it before before i get so wrapped up in this message. I want to introduce you guys to a co worker who is a registered and licensed dietitian nikki during joined the staff at nutritional weight and wellness two years ago. And i want to remind you guys that are nutritionists and dietitians. They're real people too. So the same is true for nikki. Not only is she. Knowledgeable about the field of nutrition. She's fun to work with. I mean when we get to be on our conference calls. I always know her laugh. She's a real person. Nikki has some life experiences that influence how she works with clients it really helps her understand the struggles. People have their own food now before joining nutritional weight and wellness. Nikki was doing nutrition counseling for weight loss surgery so she's worked with clients experiencing out of control cravings. Many of our clients had two hundred or three hundred pounds to lose so as you can tell she is trustworthy and is able to listen to her clients. Nikki has that deeper understanding about memory problems from a car accident about three years or so ago which led to a concussion so you know that she has hand knowledge about the role that nutrition plays in brain health like focus and memory and fatigue so nikki welcomed addition nutrition. Thank you know with a real pleasure to have you on the show today to help us out with this topic on memory. Nikki police tell listeners about your memory problems you know. It's kinda hard to talk about your own issues especially on there. I know you talk about him. I'm an open book. So what's your memory problems which probably came from having a concussion writing. Yeah i wouldn't say so So what helps you as far as when you're eating. What helps you in mood. What he'll what makes it worse. Sugar makes my my memory issues whereas my fatigue worse memory. If you know if you get fatigued your memory suffers. Cognition suffers so I have learned really since starting working at nutritional weight and wellness The importance of keeping my blood sugar balanced for my health and my brain health and function. We just went through halloween. So did the halloween candy or did you stay away from it or did some of that sneak in true time to cuban music so halloween candy is really hard to avoid. When you have a little one. I have a four year old at home so we take our little ghostbuster out. Halloween trick or treating definitely socially distanced. Of course. But i have been avoiding for the most part maybe or two snuck in there. But let me tell you the cravings spike up. Even i have found that even just eating a little piece. A few pieces of halloween candy or small halloween cookie. Maybe from your local grocery store those little pumpkins just scream at you I get brain fog. I get headaches. Those are not fun when you have them daily and they are just you know they're not going away until you get to go to sleep I you know. I forget what i've planned for dinner right. That there are many people including me who suddenly can't remember how to spell a simple word or think of the word in itself and you know why you want walked into the other room. How often has that happened you. Why am i here. Where's my phone. But you're that kind of thing. Yes let's another. What is that we would maybe call those senior moments of the past. But i'm looking at naked not senior. Oh shelby my best friend. Before we go on we really need to take a break You are listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. There are just a couple of days left for you to take advantage of our popular online classes. You can take those in the comfort of your own home and we are offering them to you at a special price with everyone staying home and stained safe. We have added more classes to keep you entertained to help you. Make that connection to your health and when we come back from break we will share some of the names of these popular classes. That you can check out will be right back. Welcome back to dishing up nutrition. We are now offering fifteen different individual online classes at a special price. ten dollars. Each amazing there is still time to take advantage of this great offer. But you must decide pretty soon because the special ends. Monday november thirtieth. So you only have a couple of days to think about this and sign up for a lot of them. They're great classes. I love our ten dollars classes after listening. Today's dishing up nutrition show. Many of you will want to take our breaking the sugar habits class or building a better working memory class which are great topics from today's dishing up nutrition and another great one to take i would highly recommend is why we drink more water because that also plays into blood sugar balance and memory and brain health so because water is seventy five percent or approximately seventy five percent of our brain really is that true seventy five percents rain water s out a little bit more. I think they're literally sloshes. I think right and so most nights that fat our brain is predominantly water so that dehydration. Something that many people who are struggling with memory are are overlooking or maybe not even aware that. That's a connection exactly. So how do people sign up for these classes. Nikki so to sign up for any of the ten dollar classes you go to our website weight and wellness dot com or you can give us a call at six five one six nine nine three four three eight and we will help you. Sign up hilali. Great so nikki. You know. I know that you are experiencing some some side effects from having the concussion. But i don't know if people understand what goes on when we have a concussion. So let's go into this a little bit. What happened in the brain with a concussion. Maybe a fall or you have an auto accident or of fallen ice or you're playing sports and get your head hit So if we look inside your head at your brain you can find that. Your brain is very soft and kind of resembles soft butter or the butter. That's kind of sitting out on your counter. Top and that material is made up of mainly fat like butter butter. We love it but the skull is hard. It's designed to protect the brain. So if you when you fall or you hit your head or experience a blow like from a car accident auto accident or playing sports. That soft like butter material rain bounces around and ultimately hits those sharp bony areas of your skull. Damage occurs inflammation sets in. And now you have a bruised in the brain so that that concussion on the football field or in soccer or hockey game skateboarding or snowboarding accidents or even like you had mentioned a car accident anytime you fall and hit your head. That is setting the stage for more inflammation in the brain exactly. Concussions are not just football injuries. They can happen to anyone anytime. So i've learned a lot about head injuries. And how my concussion has affected my memory and my moods and so much more of my life which we'll talk more about until i personally experienced it though i didn't realize what it meant. And what a head injury could have you know that could a head. Injury could have such a negative impact on your life. And i think you know. I've i've had multiple clients since starting at nutritional weight and wellness that kinda ver- people don't believe them or they don't they don't understand you know family members or friends or even doctors just don't understand what they're going through because you don't look sick. Yeah and. I don't think people have any idea how long it takes to recover. So you've been in this process of recovery for almost three years. Almost you still have some symptoms. Don't show i do in your you know thinking about your symptoms. The probably one of the worst symptom that you might be having I would say headaches and the hige guess give but fatigue is rough and headaches. come from the fatigue. Yeah so listeners. If you've taken a blow to the head or maybe you've been in a car accident. Maybe you need to work with someone like someone who really understands what. You're going through because nikki. I'm sure that you are giving people this. Glimpse of hope you're working full-time you're juggling lots of things your mom you're a friend. You have found ways to take care of your brain and reduce that inflammation. We know that there are lots of you out there The research center. The statistic shows that two million new head injuries occur every year in united states and over. Three hundred fifty thousand military vets have had a traumatic brain injury head. Injuries can be a very serious problem and can cause a wide range of symptoms. Now when i work with clients who have had a concussion or traumatic brain injury. These are the most common and debilitating symptoms. now nikki. You mentioned headaches and fatigue but they also comment on things like dizziness. Brain fog difficulty remembering where they put things even things like iran ability and nausea. They have a hard time with their balance and even difficulty sleeping. Which i i would love to get your take on How this inflammation. Your brain has affected your sleep. Yes i can relate to most of that list that you just shared. Yes because i've had them maybe not all currently right now. Thank goodness I've done a lot of healing. But at one point i've had all of that and in different degrees so sleep was a huge thing for me. Especially in the onset of my concussion. I would get two to four hours of sleep and do that for several weeks. You feel like you're literally going crazy. So sleep is huge for me. So and then the memory goes the brain frogs said san and things. Just you don't heal. We know we sleep. We heal when we sleep right. Since the onset of my concussion. I've experienced many different symptoms like i said Have been really frustrating. That's the one thing that I think we see that in a lot of different conditions Because a lot of these conditions that people come to nutritional weight and wellness for. You can't see them. You know you can't see heart disease. You can't see diabetes So when people have to change things in their life. It's hard to explain. What's kind of interesting nikki. You know when you said people can't see these disabilities or these health problems. Which is so true. But i we work with so many people that have sleep problems to you. Wouldn't know that unless you are asking people questions you don't you know like when you were only getting two to four two four hours sleep a night. I'm people didn't know they didn't. I did and i would frantically. I'm sure i feel like i. Picture myself as a cartoon character with the crazy hair and love big boggy is like i'm getting two hours and you know the doctors like okay. Okay and i'm just like you don't understand and i consider myself a pretty big advocate for my health care and a lot of people aren't they don't know how to be. I have a medical background. So i know the questions to ask. I know what's normal. What's not most of the time. And so so. Yeah i i suffer even daily writing notes. Our client notes. Sometimes i'll forget what i'm writing or have hard time spelling. Something like a senior moment. I'm getting them early. I guess But to i think any client. That's probably listening all the sun. Just say i lost it. Gimme a second. And i have to come back and you know. It's very gracious. My clients are always gracious with that. You know. I'm open with my clients that i've had a concussion and they appreciate the honesty and Knowing that they can be real with me. Because i can be real with them right so you know i think most people understand that like an auto accident or you know and head injury in a football game or something will end up affecting people's memory. Do they really understand that. The memory problem is due to inflammation in their brain. You know i think again. I think most people understand that. When you have a sprained ankle you can see the inflammation but the same thing actually happens in your brain when you have a concussion or you have a fall. It's exactly the same that happens in the brain of someone with alzheimer's disease it's inflammation inflammation inflammation and. It's it's really hard to spot because we can't see swelling in the braid. Well i remember. That's the first thing i learned was. We can do testing but we won't see anything. That's what the doctor said to me. we can. We can scan your brain but you're not going to see it right now. Researchers have clearly demonstrated that inflammation over and over and over is the fenton fundamental process that underlines the development of alzheimer's so it is brain inflammation yup. And what's exciting is. Doctors have now all the ability to actually image. The brain you know and see that inflammation and the In the ways those inflammatory chemicals are an going action in the brain and they can also see the connection between the degree of inflammation to the level of memory loss. I think before we talk about brain inflammation more dr. I think we need to go to our next break. So you are listening to dishing up nutrition. I think most of us agree. That twenty twenty has been a highly stressed filled year for many of us. Eighty percent of people living in the us are struggling with stress. Anxiety and depression. Mental health issues are real concern for many. It is important at this time to support your brain chemicals with quality food especially quality protein so many of our clients are making weekly appointments with their nutritionists and dietitians to have the support. They need through december and january. I'm having a lot of people calling for appointments so if you are interested in knowing appointment call us at six five one six nine nine three four three eight and we'll set it up for you at your convenience and we'll be right back. Welcome back to dishing up nutrition. I wanna share a special. That's going on. We have fifteen percent off on several of our probiotics. Through the end of november. We are offering fifteen percent off on balance acid on this biotic. Seven and biotic duo. We also encourage you to think about your vitamin d levels this time of year especially while we're talking about supplements to address vitamin having your vitamin d. Level checked is so important for your brain health vitamin i just had mine checked. Yup very active in the brain so having an adequate vitamin d. Level is so important for your immune function and for your mental health. And you know nikki. Before we came on this morning you had mentioned as a nutritionist and dietician having that vitamin d. level checked helps us get that individualized j-o-s-e so we know your body needs so we really encourage you to do that. Of course eating real food is the key to good health and then we add in those key supplements for the things that we can't get from food. Let's go back to talking a little bit more about brain inflammation and we know that if you have a fall or you know maybe have a car accident or something like that. You can help brain inflammation but there are other factors that caused brain inflammation and. I think this is the real the key to what happens when people have the beginning of alzheimer's disease right or even serious alzheimer's disease and it's interesting because oftentimes i will have clients coming in that. Maybe they have a family history of alzheimer's disease or you know they're taking care of a mom or a dad or a spouse and they have this fear of developing hammers to seize. they really come to recognize that they think better and do better when they follow an anti inflammatory diet. Which makes sense when we see that inflammation in the brain so here are some interesting facts worldwide. A person is diagnosed with dementia. Every seven seconds. Oh i'm using every seven seconds and more than five million. Americans currently have alzheimer's disease. So seventy five percent or three quarters of adults suffer from memory problems and dr. I know you're not one of them. I hope not at least not on this radio. Show today it's not just adults older adults. Having memory problems young adults and even children are having memory problems. The question that to be addressed is what's the underlying cause of those memory problems because just age doesn't dictate how well our brain works. Yup i agree with that. I think the question is best answered of course by research. We know from research studies that there is a link between developing dementia and the higher blood sugars in your body. Both prediabetes and type two diabetes put you at risk for developing memory problems. I'm afraid that many people don't know what's causes high blood sugar levels in their body. And i'm i don't think people really understand how inflammatory sugar can be and those processes carbs can be louis. It's interesting before when we were talking before you know. I made the comment that. I probably eat to keep my blood. Sugar contrasts you did. Yeah that's such a new idea for people. And i think as we continue to share this real food message. There hopefully are more people that say while. I'm eating to support my blood sugar. And that really is a practical way for us to reduce that mission. So when i'm working with a client who said that they're worried about their memory or you know maybe they're having some of these lapses in memory. I teach them about balanced eating. And for those of you who have listened to dishing up nutrition. You probably know protein vegetables and healthy fats and i kind of think of it. As animal protein colorful carbohydrates permanent predominantly vegetables and those really nourishing. Anti inflammatory fats. So as we think about the carbs specifically i like to keep the number of carbs that these clients eat daily to about one hundred grams or less. The amount of carbohydrates for breakfast should be between twenty five and twenty eight grams. So if we were think about that in practical terms if you were to eat vegetables for breakfast that would be a cup of green beans. And maybe a half a cup of squash for lunch. Edith salad containing twenty five to twenty eight grams of carbohydrates. And really what you're hearing assay. Is that the best and most healing carbs come from vegetables and so i really try to reprogram that carb of message for my clients and i try to change that over. Tha color because when you're thinking about color your naturally gravitating more towards the vegetables and the fruits and the browns like nutritious talking your rainbow but not that the halloween candy. Your rainbow of veggies. Sometimes people say color. Does that mean. I get to eat skills now. When we're thinking about dinner that would be another twenty five to twenty eight grams of carbs. So when you're thinking about snacks it's probably best to kind of keep your snack number of carbohydrates down to about ten ten to fifteen at the most and probably have to snacks at least every day in you know really. Most people are eating too many carbohydrates and sometimes they're eating up to two hundred grams sometimes. Three hundred grams of carbohydrates. So if you wanna avoid type two diabetes. And i think everybody does and also how to avoid alzheimer's disease it's better if you can kind of keep your carb down that level down to about a hundred grams of carbs -oday. It's easy to do that with vegetables. To the carbs are so easy to overeat before the pandemic. When i'd have people over you know when we weren't socially distanced the For a holiday dinner. I would say i need to put something out. You know to kind of munch on why would think chips and salsa. That's easy have you ever noticed how it's hard to stop eating. Just one or two tortilla chips. Yes i have nikki honestly. Can you stop after eating just seven ships. I would say most people listening maybe people in this room to agree that it is difficult to just eat seven so and then close the bag. Put it away. And why is seven chips important. Because seven chips seven chips contain twenty grams of carbs. That's a seven. Yeah that's a fifth of the one hundred grams that we were just talking about. So if you aren't mindful which is easy to be with chips food like that. It's easy to not be mindful about what you're eating Of how much you're eating you can eat your entire day's worth of with only a couple of handfuls of chips so what happens when your guests leaves. What do you do so close up that bag of chips and they're sitting on the counter or maybe you don't even close it up. Maybe it's just sitting out and you're cleaning up after your guests leaves and maybe a few more see. What's the harm right just a few more. Well now you've maybe nibbled on fourteen chips so that baggage chips usually still out on the counter or wrapping it up or maybe it's just in the bowl still while you're cleaning up your after your guest leave and you think you know you may be grabbing a chip here there. you think. what's the harm well. All of a sudden you've nibbled on fourteen chips and then maybe up to twenty one ships and now we've just got sixty grams of carbs including the carbs from the meal. Yes and that's very close to one hundred. Yes and your blood. Sugar goes up above the normal range. And what happens then ladies inflammations. That's an right that blood sugars stirs up inflammation in the bloodstream. So now we're gonna talk a little bit about that biochemistry. But i promise we won't scare you away for some people the more they know the reason why they're going to do something different. The better they can make those changes the more willing they are to make those changes so for example when sugar binds to the proteins and certain. Fats that actually results deformed molecules that don't function well and we look at this in the brain sugar molecules and brain proteins combine to produce harmful new structures. That can lead to degeneration of the brain. So we really see that inflammation damaging the brain. You are listening to dishing up nutrition in our show. Today we talked about the butter like consistency of your brain. Now your brain is actually just a mass of fatty tissue and water so we want wanna keep that brain hydrated most of the brain. Fat is an omega three fatty acid so to reduce brain inflammation. We recommend four thousand to six thousand milligrams of omega three fish oil for other mental health issues like depression obsessive compulsive disorder. Adhd and even low motivation. We recommend a special type of omega three fat called d. h. a. and dha comes from algae we found three hundred to four hundred milligrams of dha fatty acid support brain function. If you have questions for us feel free to call our offices at six five one six nine nine three four three eight or you can submit a question online at weight and wellness dot com. We'll be right back. Welcome back to dishing up. Nutrition for many of our clients. Health insurance covers their cost of nutritional counseling for those private pay clients. We are offering special discounts. At this time. You may want to buy a package visits with one of our nutrition experts for maybe your mother or perhaps it could be a special holiday gift for yourself. There's no better gift than good health. Call us at six five one six nine nine three four three eight and we will help you find the perfect gift so we were talking before a breaks about inflammation of the brain in degeneration of the brain. And we will. I like to put things in terms that people really understand. It's shrinking brain right and when you have a shrinking brain. It can interfere with short term and long term memory. You know the relationship between poor blood sugar control. In alzheimer's disease is so strong that researchers are now calling alzheimer's disease type three diabetes and alzheimer's disease really hits home for me personally. Because i lost my grandmother to alzheimer's this year so i- blood sugar balance and brain. Health is just one of the most important things that i focused on for myself. And hopefully my family around me and my friends around me because it's so critical. Well you know if we stop and think about this. This is one thing that we all have control over. Is our blood sugar balance. We have to kinda start thinking in terms of that. And that's one thing that i think about a lot of times is how am i gonna keep my blood sugar balanced all the time so that i don't have these lows or the highs because i don't want brain inflammation going and i sat probably a new idea. For many people are is that they actually do have power and control over their blood sugar based on what they're eating. Yes i think people have to take on that feeling that they are in charge of their health. Right and and i eat that way. You know you look at the lines by the fast foods now and you go What is really going on. Yes good stuff. Proudly cutting down added. Sugar isn't easy for the first few days and usually is usually really difficult to do. I usually tell my clients. You know you're in for a three day battle of sugar touches your tongue. Knoll that you're going to be battling cravings for the next three days but if you can stay with your cravings for sugar decline when you make the decision to cut out sugar make an appointment with one of us a nutritionist a dietitian. We're here to help direct and support you and we will make it easy. We will find how this can work in your life rather than your life working into this plan. I think it really helps. People have that clear path of not just avoiding the sugar. But now what do i eat. If i'm going to avoid the sugar or avoid the food what can i eat for breakfast and one. Can i eat for lunch. That is going to support my blood sugar and when you have a foggy brain. It's hard to think of that. It's hard to meal plan. Each of us has different levels of sugar addiction and each of us have different amounts of sugar consumption that they can tolerate. We're talking about the dietitian nutritionist. Now but we're also talking about everyone. You may have noticed during these tumultuous times that you are eating much more sugar than ever before. I may have been guilty of this the beginning the very beginning it was kind of crazy time for me and my eating life right when calvin kinda hits and we're shutting down it was. I definitely eat sugar. When i'm stressed i think sugar is a pacifier for people. But when people do cut out or or even cut down on their sugar consumption they find they sleep better they think better and they have less inflammation and magically. They start to lose weight. Oh yes that one see how. We threw that in there gary tops. He's the author of the case against sugar and we've had him on dishing up nutrition before and we're going to have money again. Does it if he allows sugar into his life. It is a slippery slope and then he wants more and more and more sugar. He knows eating a little sugar leads. Twenty more and more and more sugar and i think a lot of people feel that way not everyone for sure but a lot of sounds like mickey. That could be you. Yeah you're getting fashions again when we're working with people. We have a lot of methods and ways to help people get off sugar. It's different for every person. So i have a client. I just started really working with her. So in the past she lost over one hundred pounds. She cleared up her depression. She got married but then a little sugar found its way in in the way came back and the depression came back and she decided once again to take control of her health. So she's now we have six weekly appointments set up to get her through the holidays and to start feeling good for the next year for twenty twenty one. So dr what i hear you saying. She's not waiting until the new year to take charge. You know that's kind of an arbitrary day for people to do something different. That's right that that's a good point shelby. She's taking charge now. The crate news and this may be what is happening with. A lot of people is that she's paid off all of her health insurance deductibles for the year so now these appointments will be basically covered by her health insurance. Great yes she really is back on the road to better health and you know even after one appointment. Her comment was oh. I feel so much better already. And i wasn't perfect but i feel so much better so i can't really perfect work with us. I think we've already learned. I'm definitely not but i. I can totally relate to that. So i'm a huge oprah fan and one of her most well known sayings is what i know for sure will what i know for sure to have a good memory. I need to sleep eight to nine hours in most nights if my son is restless or my husband works lates and I just don't get restful hours of sleep. My rut next day suffer. My memory sufferers. My anxiety suffers My you know my energy sufferers. I'm definitely fatigued so getting eight to nine hours of sleep per night is not always easy but it's critical for my health. I think it is for most people. I mean we know it is for most people I have to make it a priority. I have to always think about it during always think about it. I learned during my snipe. Or i've learned over the years that sleep During sleep my brain de taxes both chemicals that i'm exposed to an environment and also those negative thoughts that i've had maybe throughout the day. Kind of interesting nikki. Yeah when you think about it just just sleeping. Detox is your brain Not only the chemicals but if you're negative your negative science have you ever. I mean think about the people in your life or have you ever woken up a little cranky. I know if. I don't get enough sleep. I'm definitely a cranky pants so we are living in really stressful times. Right now find. Eighteen hours of sleep is the best anti-depressants and anti anxiety drug i can take. Who knew sleep was so valuable. Well i know dr matthew walker author of why we sleep no so much more about the value of sleep and harm And the harm if not getting enough sleep so we always say this. Remember the more we know the better we do for those of you who are struggling with getting more than you know. Maybe only getting four to six hours of sleep a night dr Dr walker's book just might help you get some ideas or we concentrate on it that we have a class on sleep right. Yeah ten dollar class right now. And it's so critical. Well nicki i have to say. I have not had a concussion and i still find that i feel my best when i'm getting eight nine hours of sleep and my husband knows that if the dog in the middle of the night he takes the dog out because it's safer for all of us. Yes if i'm getting a solid. Yes so i would like to recap some key points from our show today just to kind of help you guys make that connection so for a better working memory. Reduce or limit the added shuker another Recap points for better working memory limit the amount of carbs you eat to a hundred grams or less daily so think of this as eating more vegetables know focusing on more vegetables will create it. Make it easier for you to eat less carbs and remember shelby said each your colors and you get a lot of nutrients from vegetables that support your brain health. So here's another one for a better working memory. Eat the right foods to avoid type. Two diabetes and maintain normal blood sugar level. So what does that really mean. It means to eat real food and it means to eat. You know quality protein vegetables and beneficial fat so simple our goal at nutritional weight and wellness is to help each and every person experience better health through eating real food simple yet powerful message.

She's all about the importance of eating animal products and with an emphasis on beef now if you are a stressful blown plant based person vegan. This is probably not going to be episode for you and you might just want to skip to another one but if you're interested in a little bit of the nuances of selecting means like from one when i go to the grocery store i'm always like oh what is like what is finished. Gresh fed what is pasture raised. What does hormone-free antibiotic free mean. She's touching on some of those issues that face us as consumers. So i wanted to have her on to talk about selecting me. An animal products from a sustainability standpoint. And diana's work is unique. She is not your typical dietitian. As i said she kind of described herself as a rogue dietitian and like listen to someone who teaches baby led weaning and a dietitian like in a world where all ever learn about and teach about traditional spoon. Feeding myself could be considered road. I tissues so. I actually really appreciate her perspective as we do. With all topics you take everything with a grain of salt. But i like diana's work because she kinda drives it down to listen. There's three main issues when we're talking about animal foods we're talking about the nutritional benefits of it the environmental impact and then the ethical considerations. So i think you'll kind of hear those messages laced throughout the interview with diana today again this is diana rogers. She's a registered dietitian and. She talks a lot about the case for meat but she always qualifies the case for better meet. Well hello diana. Thank you so much for joining me today on the podcasts. Great to speak with you and so honored to be here. Thanks for inviting me okay. So is a registered dietitian. I am so fascinated by your background. And i know you're registered dietitian as well as wondering if you could just tell our audience a little bit about the work you do and then how you got to be in a position where you are dietitian specializing in this very unique area. Yeah i mean my current. What i'm doing is i have a part time nutrition clinic where i help people i mostly focus on moms That's just who tends to gravitate towards me folks who are looking to either lose weight or fixed gut health. Those are the two specialties and actually lately though during covert i've had a ton of binge eating and stuff like that so it's really interesting to me kind of didn't really work a lot with that population but it's just kind of come out. I think of cove it. So i'm learning more about that. I think it's really interesting. And then the other part of my time just to mix things up a little bit. Is i just finished. Producing and directing film called sacred cow. The case for better meet. And i released the book this passer. So i'm doing a lot around the promotion and advocacy for especially meet the value of meat for women and children worldwide and. Really sort of debunking all of the concerns around meat so it's sort of attacked on three levels and it's really beef that i'm focused on but i'm pro all animals foods. But it's you know we've got the tricia arguments meets gonna cause cancer and heart disease and all of that. We've got the environmental case against me. Cowards are ruining the planet. They take to up too many resources. Why not just eat directly from crops. You know it's inefficient to eat me. And then we have all the ethical concerns of course around me and i address ethics last in the book because i feel that you really have to fully appreciate the nutritional environmental contribution that well raised. Animals can make before we can even talk about whether or not. It's okay to kill beautiful animals to eat them. Because it's you can't just start with that rate and how i got here is a little wind. E i had undiagnosed iliac disease as a child and was extremely malnourished and muscle tone. Basically everything i just went straight through me and i also had a lot of neurological issues from that to just like words swirling around the page kind of almost like dyslexia kind of thing and it wasn't until i was twenty six when i got diagnosed and i couldn't believe that you could be allergic to wheat. I mean i was like that's what people eat you know So really took me by surprise. And i gave up way and it did make a huge difference but i also at the same time still kept waiting my doctor saying. I think i'm diabetic. Like why. I need to eat every hour or two. I was always had my gluten free granola bars on me. All of that stuff. So i've always been interested in like. How do i fix myself. Because gosh if i miss lunch i have like tunnel. Vision asserts sweating in. You know just it was horrible and so i really entered the field of nutrition later in life just to figure out how to fix myself and at that point i then decided to become a dietician with two little kids and at the time it felt really overwhelming but i just decided i really wanted that medical credential. I wanted to be able to take insurance. And i wanted to have some credibility in the space and so having that medical credential of our d really was important to me for while the rating speaking i do and so i just made it my part time job basically to date biochemistry and all these courses that i didn't take undergrad is an art major and so it took me a very long time. It took me about seven years to complete it and it was really rough. Because i was already sold on no processed foods and kind of the real food. Wait life as going through the program and so it was tough for me. And especially when i was working in the hospitals and nursing homes. Where like boost is your only solution for. Everybody is just so depressing. So i'm really happy to be on the other side to have a private practice. Where i can help people who want to learn more about the new tradition and i don't have to necessarily follow guidelines of my boss telling me what to do in a more clinical setting so at the same time as my nutrition interest is unfolding in might mine attrition education until recently i was married to inorganic arbor so i've spent the last eighteen years living on working farms looking at the role of animals in inorganic arm and really understanding. That you can't have a sustainable close loop system of growing food without animals. They're critical to all all food production systems in all nature and so as i was watching this global dialogue sort of unfold about like what diets are best for the planet for human health. Everybody in the space is gravitating towards vegetarian and vegan diets. Or certainly we need to eat less meat right. But there's you know we're eating way too much meat and so i'm really one of the only people that's out there questioning this and you know saying like hold on. Are we really eating too much leads number. One are the studies against meet environmentally. Really accurate and could cattle actually be one of our best tools at mitigating climate change. So you're not your traditional boost. Pushing dietitian is what you're saying no way first of all. I cannot believe that you went back to school to do your dietician credential when you had two kids but i think it's super important because a lot of parents listening to the podcast will like right to me. Be like i'm really interested in nutrition. I think you know the work you do is really cool. I've been interested in this. But i really want to get that credential and it just want you guys to hear that that like if you are passionate about something still matters that you have the appropriate credential behind you and it took us seven years to get your dietician credential. And i'm certainly sure being a died headaches. Educator myself and a precept. Her for the last twenty years. I know that a lot of what you learned in school probably ruffled feathers. And yet you still stuck with it and i think our profession certainly needs more people who are questioning yeah sugar late and boost and ensure is like what a nutritional supplement should be like. I completely hear where you're coming from. And i think it is important to be having this conversation that there's enough work for all dieticians like if you look at a lot of the problems facing our population today. Yeah and you know. It's it's interesting because i keep trying to present it fancy and i'm going to apply again with my book and my film and hopefully we'll get more dieticians to be open to you. Know some of these ideas and the value of animal source foods at least nutritionally because they're not dietitian there dietitians. No i mean in the traditional diabetics curriculum. I mean i know how to make an egg foam. But i don't learn about the difference between grass and grain fed beef like it is incumbent upon there has to be other outlets i guess for dietitians and future dieticians and parents consumers to learn about these topics. I wanted to touch real quick on something you said in the intro and it's kind of about issue of quality over quantity and my mom is actually a registered. Dietitian i grew up with a family like medium size exposure to meet but after college was a peace corps volunteer in nepal so lived in a primarily hindu community who doesn't eat beef at all and then traveled to different parts lived in an area in northeastern apologize. Very close to like the darjeeling area of india but we also had a lot of buddhist families that lived in the same community so occasionally some people around me were eating certain types of meat but mostly not beef and what always struck me was like when there would be a holiday and you would get one ounce of goat meat and it was such a big deal obviously a much more impoverished community in a rural area but they really really valued animal products in a way that i was like if these people walked into a grocery store in the united states and saw like a sixteen ounce porterhouse steak like their head would explode not to mention like. I'm appreciating this. One ounce of meat so much more because the quality and what it signifies is really different in this culture and community whereas sometimes in the united states like you look at your traditional restaurant played in. It's like a massive slab of meat with some white carbs and no vegetables so even though we both agree in the nutritional benefits of meat and for parents tastes and textured cetera for the babies. But would you argue that. There's something about going lower on the quantity in order to assure that you're getting better quality a really interesting question. I kind of looked at. So since nineteen seventy our intake in america of beef has gone way way down so the typical american today it's about two ounces of beef per person two ounces per person per day there's this perception i think that all americans are like sitting down to seventy two ounce a tomahawk steak for dinner. But really what's happened. Is that our intake of processed foods has doubled. our intake of industrially processed oils has gone way up our intake of chicken which is less nutrient dense than read. Me has gone up four hundred percents and so we just kind of shifted. And i think that protein is underrated and i looked closely at the rda for protein at the studies that support the classic rda for protein. The point eight grams of protein per kilogram body weight are based on these nitrogen balance studies which are really flawed. And when i looked at the papers that research what happens when people are fed more than the rda of protein. What i found was that not only people lose weight but when they also combine that with exercise particular weightlifting there. The weight that they lost was fat instead of just overall body weight. So you know there's a lot of diet where you can lose ways but it's really the higher protein diets are the ones where you're losing fat instead of. Just wait and we also know for children. The only randomized controlled trial. That's been done on. Children with more versus less meat. Found that the kids who got more meets. This was done in kenya with school children. Compared to the ones that just got more dairy products or more calories. The ones who got the more meets did better academically behaviorally and physically in all three categories in. So that's where i questioned. Clearly we have a problem in our food system rate with the factory farming and the way animals are treated. And all of that. But i think the real villain here is our consumption of of ultra processed foods and animal source. Protein is really low in calories for what you're getting incredibly a nutrient dense food and also protein is the most satiated macronutrients. So when you increase your intake of me you actually eat less of the other calories. And so i just think that you know more better meet might be. And that's what i'm saying. Essentially as bars quality goes and i completely agree with you with regards to the processed food situation and that's the audience that's listening we're talking about the most shady macro nutrient but for babies. They're just learning how to eat and learning how to listen and respond to their hunger cues and i completely agree with you. That the rda for protein certainly could be updated. But do just want to play. Devil's advocate that people in the developed world you're mentioning some studies in ethiopia and certainly the situation might be different in other parts of the world but you know parents here are not running around with widespread protein deficiency and yet they oftentimes give this undeserved health halo two protein. And they're like my baby needs more protein. It's like whoa. Your baby needs to have a variety of different nutrients and learn how to eat protein. So i was wondering if you could help the parents that are just like learning about protein knowing that okay. We don't need to overdo it with protein. There are other nutrients babies need. But what are some tips that you would have for them if they're selecting proteins that they're going to start feeding their baby. Well the great thing about meat is it's not just protein rate has like really fats to so got all those important fat soluble. Vitamins and animal source. Foods contain almost all of the nutrients. We need when whenever there's a nutrient available in a plant or an animal. It's always more bioavailable and better for the sorry real quick with the exception of carbohydrate the animal products that you're mentioning don't provide carbohydrate micro hydro okay so giving children even like a bone to gnaw on you. Know is like teething. I've seen people do that. You've finished your rib or something that the kids can just kind of work on it. As far as you know which animals proteins are the most nutrient tents. Were looking at seafood off the charts oysters and different fatty fish and then as we move into the terrestrial animals red meat and especially organ meats are going to be the most nutrient dense so at the bottom of the list would be chicken. Which is the most common me that people and there's certainly nothing wrong with chicken but if we're looking at just a hierarchy of nutrient density and what we're getting for the calorie. It's definitely going to be seafood in an organ meats followed by red meat's. Could you talk a little bit about some of the greenwashing marketing terminology. That's out there. That a lot of us myself included fall victim to like. You're at the store. What does hormone. What does free range. I mean i know. We can't run through the tables. What they actually mean but some things that parents who are like just in the grocery store what do you want them to avoid as far as planes on packaging. I guess that doesn't really matter. Yeah i actually. Well we have for folks that are going to watch the movie. Everyone will be directed to a page where we have different offers and one of them is a guide to ethical sourcing so there are so many different labels out there and it can be really confusing. Some of them do mean something and a lot of them. Don't there's a lot out there. i think so. Like grass said is really regulated. All beef is said so. It's really just is across finished and again there's no fda over say on that so there's no one really saying. I mean even meat that was raised in another country but sent here to be. Slaughtered is called product of the usa. Crazy is right now. It's so confusing. If a cow was fed corn it's entire life and then finished with grasp it can call be called grass-fed. Is that correct. Actually it's the other way around. So all cattle star on grass. So there's no cows that are one hundred percent in a factory farm. That's very different though from chicken and pork. There's a lot of benefits to going with red meat over chicken pork because chicken pork are in our industrial system. A hundred percent of their lives. They're indoors eating grains where cattle. Actually they don't do well on a feed lot their whole lives because they are ruminants and so they all start out on a calf cow operation like in montana or someplace grazing with their mobs and then they're either finished on a or finished on grass but again that that grasp finish a lot of people can say grass said but that's true of all knee is grass-fed but most people thought when they said they mean grass finished beef and it does taste a little bit different Tends to be leaner. It doesn't necessarily have to be leaner. I've had amazingly you know. Very fatty grass-fed beef to but in general it's leaner. There is a misconception that is healthier and so a lot of people say oh. Well it's veteran omega threes. Which beef's not a great source of omega three to begin with right and and so that's dietitian. I always just cautioned because a lot of companies will want to me endorse their products. Will you be our nutritionist to talk to the press to talk about the best reasons to eat our product and mike. But i'm not gonna say it's healthier necessarily because it's just so insignificant what about saturated fat for example like i always think as a not super well informed consumer about sustainability like i always thought. Oh if they eat grass and they're raised leaner the saturated fat content of grass. Fed beef is lower but he's a kind of like splitting hairs. A little bit because you can always you know the processes you're taking a fat out any burger draining the fat so like eighty percent versus ninety percent. If you're just gonna drain the fat anyway. You know doesn't really make that much difference. Grass fed and grain finished beef both have about the same ratio of saturated fat two mono unsaturated fat. It's really just looking at those amigas. And what i like to tell people. Is you know if you're looking at a pie. Chart national us in the book in presentations a pie chart it is the skinniest. Little little sliver of omegas versus the saturated monounsaturated and so like two pennies twice as much as one penny. But it doesn't mean you have a lotta money and so you still need to eat eight pounds of grass fed beef to get the same omega threes you can get in three ounces of wild salmon exactly so eat fatty fish for the amiga threes. But also if you're looking at your overall ratio in your diet just switching digressive beef is not gonna make a huge huge difference to your overall health because the best way to fix your omega three to six ratio is don't eat processed food and just eat lots of vegetables in animals for foods and there you go like. That's the best way to reduce inflammation kind of along the same lines as the marketing in the greenwashing in the grocery store. Do you have any tips for parents about like products that are advertised as being hormone free or antibiotic free like that's something i think is also largely misunderstood. And just curious if you have the consumer tips for us. Yes yes yes. Sorry i got down at rabbit hole of I do that sometimes. So thank you for redirecting me so cage. Free eggs for example. I don't really think that that's a great practice. Overall because chickens in a factory farm setting are very stressed out very aggressive The cages actually protect these chickens from pecking at each other and so to put ten thousand chickens. A hen house just in a big long is a really bad idea in so i always recommend that folks try as hard as they can to support local farmers who are doing it at a smaller scale buying directly from them And talking to them about their practices. Try to go visit the farm. You can buy a neat share from them often and look at the farm. It should smell good. The animals should be outdoors at least in the in the growing season. And when i have to go to the grocery store what i look for is pasture raised for eggs and in the case of eggs. There is a massive difference between cafo traditional. Just the cheapo exit. You get no styrofoam containers versus like a brand vital farms or another brand that does past erased and you just mentioned cafo. Could you just explain what that israel quickly sure concentrated animal feeding operation. So that would be. You know there's rules about an animal per square feet that would define exactly the cafo but basically it's you know these factory farms of animals and i have a question because i have seven kids so we buy a lot of stuff like in bulk including ex from costco but then in my inbox. Whatever i get the farm fresh eggs. Like oh my. These are so much better than my husband's like we should get chicken so mike we have seven kids. Who can't get chickens. Why do the farm fresh eggs taste so much. Better is it. it's not. I mean it's not like happier chickens cap. Your is it the feed that they're fed. That's different like literally. The egg yolks looks better and tastes better in farm fresh eggs than the costco ones totally end. They are definitely more nutrient. That's like by far and it has to do with a chicken a mono gastric animal. So what they're eating goes directly into their eggs and their meat versus a cow is a room in it. And so what they're eating is actually broken down by curiouser and then translated into fatty acids that go to feed the cows so it doesn't make as difference basically in beef and chicken as it'd be thin eggs. Excuse me right right. So that's why. Pastured pork and packed pastor chicken and pastured eggs are nutritionally a better it just like a also wild salmon is way healthier which also make a super good point about the difference in taste and parents always asked me. Do i have to buy organic like listen. You do you. And what works for you. But i do you buy organic said i buy what organic products i can afford and does that. I feel taste better. And we're talking about helping. Our babies develop their taste preferences. Like i live in california tomatoes. Taste awful here. I'd buy organic tomatoes because they taste better. Apples tastes when they're organic farm. Fresh egg tastes better into me. Grass-fed beef taste better. But i think we need to also remember the. In addition to the nutrition babies are also developing these flavor preferences and we know that the greatest number of foods and flavours and tastes and textures babies can be exposed to. That's what helps us raise independent eaters and prevent picky eating. I think you're doing your family of service. When you choose the items that do overall taste better. Which is kind of in alignment with what i think. I hear you're saying as well. Yeah i mean. my kids. Taste the difference between grass-fed milk. Typical milk they can taste the difference. Organic milk has been shown to be more trance but more so than than me which is lower in fat. Okay so what about milk you saying that. It is more nutrient dense than conventionally. Brown raised milk. Yeah so there's different nutrients that you can get in milk from grass-fed animals and organic. It's been documented. I've seen many studies on this. Conjugated the lake acid. Which is a really great fatty acid. That's hard to get in. Other places is higher in organic milk. We also have more vitamin a. and d. in gray said milk and it tastes better like my kids really really prefer grass-fed milk to pickle milk. So up in new england we can get people hill and i don't actually drank milk because When i was sick as a kid milk just really didn't work for me. And so now as an adult like drinking milk just seems is just a weird thing to me but anyway i watched my kids drink milk and they discuss all the maple hill. Milk is grass-fed milkman. You can buy at a regular grocery store. Like i don't know that i've ever seen it but maybe never been looking for it actually. Well yeah maybe creamery. As i mentioned is a brand here in new england but there people can look for pasteurized milk out there. But a lot of those other claims like in fortified with omega threes or some of them are just complete sort of nutrient washing or greenwashing. No hormones for example. You know that's also in the case of me. I looked at the differences in gross said versus typical beef and did not find any evidence that the diet the any glyphosate for example or antibiotic or anything actually ended up in the meat so mean itself as nutrient dense. If you can support a local farmer you prefer the taste of grass fed meeting. They're certainly great environmental and ethical reasons to buy graphic me definitely do it but to those moms that are struggling just want to get nutrients into their kids like by. They have coli like that's important. A great source of iron. As well. Which i think a lot of times we forget right and our audience is really familiar with eggs. Because as one of the big eight allergenic foods spend a lot of time talking about. It's one of the earlier allergenic foods that we introduced. But i really appreciate your insight that you're saying looking for pasture raised eggs actual the is a choice that you can make. That might make different or does make a difference environmentally for sure nutritionally. It certainly does. And i think most people would agree that taste wise so this is kind of covering that three pronged approach that you're looking at in your materials. Which is the environmental side of the nutrition side of it then of course the ethical side of it as well now i wanted to ask just from a food safety standpoint because you mention the pasture raised milk. We are talking about feeding between six and twelve month. Old babies parents no not to replace broker formula with fluid. Cow's milk until after the time the baby is one but is perfectly fine to introduce dairy products and we do so with lower sodium ones. That are safe to feed. If you guys have questions about milk protein. Make sure you go. Listen to my podcast episode. It's called protein. How to introduce your baby to this potentially allergenic food on its way back in episode thirteen but that will kind of clear up some of this appearance. You're like wait what it's okay to have milk on but is that pasteurized milk. Is that raw milk. Meaning unpasteurized milk right people especially because i talk fast. I'll say pasteurize they'll set they'll think to rise so those are two different things so milk. I don't it's really tricky. Some people out there that feed raw milk to their kids and you can get it in certain states in some stores. I'm really torn about that one. Because as somebody who's like surf say certified and knows the dangers. I think it can be. It can be sometimes really dangerous if you don't other producer okay. I always like breathing. A huge relief. Because i'm like. I'm going to have to add flavor that i do not endorse the feeding of raw milk to babies just from a. I don't want to get into the process whether or not it changes the nutrition content but just from a food safety standpoint. Are we both on the same page that we don't feed raw milk products to babies way back in the day it was done but way back in the day there were also you know it was a cow. It came straight from the goats tips and even in the poorest forest reaches of rural nepal. Where i was living. No matter how poor you were with. Minimal access to fire what appea- every single family scalded their milk to kill any potential pathogens. And so i really do take. I don't get involved a lot. More political sides of food but really the feeding of raw milk has no nutrition advantage for your babies. It's a safety precaution that you're taking and that you still can make more sustainable choices. But you don't have to put your baby in peril so pasture raise just these animals brass. Okay we're not talking about feeding unpasteurized dairy products we're talking pasture-raised but then there's some odd denies. But that's purely aesthetic right. Just to distribute fat throughout the milk right and so my kids don't love on homogenized milk it can be lumpy because homogenising just means that you're taking those fat particles in your distributing them evenly throughout the melts. Don't have cream on the top with so many people get homogenized like so many rumors get homogenization. Confused with pasteurization. And they're two totally different things with homogenization. Just being an aesthetic preferential thing for the distribution of fat a pasteurization. Is there to help protect you from ingesting harmful pathogens. They're two totally different things but see homogenized and pasteurized milk which at attritional grocery store. All milk homogenized unpasteurized any final for parents. Who are like. I go to the store and i look at the meat i on. There's all these options when they're just trying to pick animal foods for their families like maybe top three tips. If you're at the grocery store shore one is if you're strapped for money in budget is really a problem. I still think that he is going to be the best choice. Nutritionally environmentally unethically. Even if it was feed lot finished. And i go into that more in the book like what about hormones and antibiotics. Is there anything we should be on the lookout for or just ignore totally ignore it's so funny because nuances so not easy. That's good though. I just wanna make sure we're not missing any lake major red flags all that's totally bogus. Animal given. Antibiotics are a huge problem for the environment and for our overall health when it comes to antibiotic resistant bacteria that that can cause sepsis. You know we don't have any more antibiotics on coming out like we just don't in so we need producers to stop just using so many antibiotics in the our food system because they get into the environment in then that causes problem but as far as you know. Will this antibiotic than translate into on. My kid is now full of this weird antibiotic that was given to the animal. No there's a lot of testing done and things are pretty pretty stringent in america. I have had people send me studies showing higher rates of drugs in antibiotics in animals but they were not in the us. And i looked really really deeply at the testing. That's done here in. It is is safe to just you know meat is healthy. Basically in it's important it's really important for child development in so i would go for fatty fish and read me as as the number one Liver if i mean. I got my kids to memorial tentacles. The better for that like they love chicken hearts and squid and octopus and like i was super super adventurous without when they were little and now they're the most amazing eaters and we will go to a brazilian restaurant and they're like more chicken hearts fleece weight. Really you have teenagers. that eat. Chicken hearts So i guess you know like get them. Excited like coke whole fish like on the bone a whole fish in the ovens. They can see that. That actually came from an animal. Because i think also our kids just two removed from the facts that what they're eating was actually a living thing so when they grow up and they realized that they have a problem with it. I think they need to understand that. This animal was living saying we should honor the fact that it died for our health but that there is no that lives forever and everything is just recycled nutrients right like we're just the goes life death decomposition in life like that's just how it works and i think when kids only see the meat coming in plastic packages boneless skinless chicken breasts. It's really you know it really sets them up for being really confused when they get older. And i've just seen a lot of problems. I've read your book sacred cow. How is the movie different. I'm just curious because like this. Podcast episode is going to be coming out just before. The premiere could tell like a little bit about that. Because i know it's kind of like the next prong of your approach to our so we are going to be offering a through my website sacred count on how people can click the link right on the homepage and registered to watch the film for free. We're offering it for one week. Only november twenty second through the thirty s. And then it's going to go away and you be up on the mainstream platform. Starting this winter so later on but i really wanted a chance to just offer it to those kind of in the real food space a little bit earlier since i had so much support from this community. The book sort of equally goes into nutrition environmental ethics The slight three a's book and the film does touch on nutrition and ethics. Pretty strongly but the bulk of the film is the environmental argument. We really went around in circles. Trying to figure out you know is a docu series where we have one episode just on nutrition and one episode just on environment or something but those are expensive to make it a lot of energy for me to raise the money never made a film before and fundraising is definitely not something that was in my skill set. They also don't teach that a dietitian school. Oh my gosh or filmmaking. For that matter. I mean basically now have like a full master's degree documentary filmmaking. So is fun for me. Because as i mentioned my undergrad arts art education actually. So i think my skill is translating science visually and into words and stories that someone without a master's degree can understand relate to and so i have a ton of graphics that i share on instagram on my instagram is at sustainable dish. Indiana tell us where the audience can go to learn more about your work including the movie will link everything up in the show notes for this episode of you guys. Go to podcasts dot com. But we're gonna go to learn more about you sure. Yes oh my website. Sacred cow dot info has info on the book. The books just available anywhere books are sold. The film will be screened for anyone for free. Just enter your email address and we'll send you a link and that again is going to be just november twenty. Second through thirtieth. We actually picked that week. Because it's thanksgiving week and can sometimes those tense conversations at the dinner table about me versus no me and we really asked that question in the film. Are we all really on the same side. And are we arguing about the wrong thing is really beat versus. No me or is it really do. We need a better agricultural system and can find me on instagram at sustainable dish and then my website for kind of overall nutritional nutrition practice is stained dish dot com while guys. I hope you enjoyed that interview with diana rogers. I warned you not your typical dietitian right. I can't say. I agree with one hundred percent of everything diana teaches or is about but i really did appreciate learning a little bit more about some of those nuances. Certainly like when you're at the grocery store like okay. I know that farm fresh eggs taste better. But now i'm gonna make more of an effort to buy them definitely cost more though so there there's always the trade off if you're a member of the outset diane was kinda talking about the three pronged approach to what she teaches which is just taking into consideration when you're selecting animal foods namely meet that. We're looking at okay. What's the nutritional implication here. What is the environmental consideration. And then certainly. What's the ethical consideration. So i'll link up all of the resources that diana talked about on the show notes page for this which you can find at be l. w. podcast dot com forward slash seventy six. Thanks for listening. See you next time.

Hello and welcome to the nutrition. Diva podcast. i'm your host monterey nagel and in this episode. i'm going to answer. The eternal question are being of protein or carbohydrate food. Vegetarians and vegans lean pretty hard on beans as a source of protein. And even those of us who sometimes eat meat but also enjoy plant based meals will often build our meat free meals around some sort of legume and that's because they contain more protein per serving than most other plant foods but the nutritional profile of legumes is very different from animal protein sources eggs meat fish and chicken get anywhere from fifty to ninety five percent of their calories from protein with the rest usually coming from fat leg. Hume's on the other hand only get about a quarter of their calories from protein and the rest is mostly carbohydrate. Soybeans are a bit of an exception being higher in both protein and fat and lowering carbohydrate than other legumes. Peanuts which are technically legumes are another exception. They're even higher in fat than soybeans and lower in protein than most beans. Perhaps because of this peanuts are generally categorized as nuts for the purposes of dietary guidelines despite their botanical classification. So can you get enough protein from beans well. Although we think of beans as being a protein food the truth is that they provide a lot less protein per serving and per calorie than animal proteins. A three ounce serving of cooked chicken breast for example provides about twenty six grams of protein and about one hundred and sixty calories. The standard serving size for beans is a half of cup of cooked beans and that provides just eight grams of protein for around one hundred twenty calories so we would need to eat a lot more beans to get the same amount of protein as we get from meet. It would take two cups of black beans. That's about four hundred and eighty calories to get the same amount of protein as you'd get from three quarters of a cup of chicken breast for example so for every gram of protein and beans. You're also taking in about three grams of carbohydrate and a lot more calories now although beans are relatively high in carbs these are some of the healthiest types of carbs. The carbohydrate portion of beans is a combination of fiber and starch but about half of the starch in beans is actually what we refer to as resistant starch that means it resists digestion and absorption in the small intestine and goes on to function much like fiber in the gut the fiber and the resistant starch in beans feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut. They promote regularity they helped to modulate our blood sugar response to food. They also increase our satiafaction and society after meals helping us feel full with fewer calories. Perhaps that's why people who eat. More beans generally have healthier body weights and lower waist. Circumference beans also contain fido sterols. These are plant compounds that are shaped so similarly to cholesterol that they can occupy the cholesterol receptors in ourselves and regular being consumption is linked with better cholesterol profiles. So beans have a lot going for them. But let's talk about how they fit into your diet because when we build a meal around beans instead of meat which is a great idea. We may need to make some other adjustments to our plates because beans contain both protein and starch. It might make sense to reduce other sources of starch to compensate for that. So if you're having black-eyed peas instead of blackened catfish for dinner. Perhaps you skip the bread or the potatoes. Beans and rice of course are a classic combination in part because of the complementary amino acid profile. But you could have a smaller portion of rice with your beans instead of half a cup of beans and a cup of rice. For example you could switch the proportions on that double up on the beans ordered to bump up the protein and reduce the rice to half a cup and keep in. Mind that if you're trying to match the protein content that you'd get from meet. You may not have as many calories to spend on other foods due to the extra calories that are riding along with that plant to protein. Finally i do need to say just a word about a somewhat notorious aspect of beans and that is gas beans are particularly rich in fermentable carbohydrates and while that makes them a feast for our intestinal. Bc's it can cause us some digestive discomfort in the form of gas or bloating people vary in their sensitivity to these fermentable. Carbs beans are usually avoided in the low fahd map diet for example but those who are not quite as sensitive can often build up their tolerance to those compounds by increasing their being consumption gradually and over the counter enzyme supplements like be no are beans. I'm can also be very helpful in the show notes for today's show.

just search for mark worried about the bad publicity and the potential effect on tourism in not morals local police officers attempted to shift the blame in suggested that mark kilroy had disappeared

progress slow investigators even hired tired of hypnotist see if they could figure out some clues under hypnosis bradley stated that he saw a young hispanic man wearing a blue shirt and with a visible scar across his face talking to mark before he disappeared he said the men walked up to mark and said hey don't i know you from somewhere but none of mark's friends were able to remember the exact time or place mark disappeared investigators knew that if mark had been kidnapped it wasn't for ransom because there's a doctor's had not calls for payment they believed that marks body will likely dumped after he was robbed united states border patrol helicopters and terrain vehicles searched along the rio 'grande river but mark spotty was nowhere to be found during the investigation marks parents headed to the rio grande valley in circulated more than twenty thousand handouts through the region offering a fifteen thousand dollar reward to anyone with information that would help locate their son people from mark kilroy hometown traveled to mexico looking for him handing out flyers and offering a reward to anyone who could provide information as marks friends and family did all they could to track came down uss surtees frustrated by local authorities moving slowly and not sharing enough information began to suspect that marks the doctors had insiders within the ranks of the mexican authorities well the uss had praised the efforts of the mexican federal police working with them on the case they trusted the state and municipal officials on march twenty sixth mercury's case we've highlighted on the tv show show america's most wanted giving the case nationwide notoriety and generating several phone calls with letters and tips but none of the leads were solid a few days later marks parents returned to santa fe where local residents raised money through garage sales and car washes to help the kilroy family continue to search for their song on april first nineteen eighty nine an unexpected breakthrough came agent role morale is headed the thirteen kilometer checkpoint on the serpentine road near santa alina that led to more of the road stop had been implemented in the midst of the human farmland to crack down on smugglers who liked to fear from the road insect their drugs across the nearby rio 'grande a red pickup truck cross international border from texas and sort through the checkpoint they did not throw fortunately one of the federal is recognized the driver as sarah fien hernandez member of the notorious hernandez family these officers remain patient and carefully followed surfing in an unmarked vehicle surfing unwittingly led them to the families ranch and they pulled off at a distance after about thirty minutes watching sarah fain come and go officers moved in to investigate they found traces of marijuana in and around the vehicles on the ranch they expect about what the federal aid did not expect to see a small symon statue with a pear shape face an angry frown staring back at them from the floorboards of a blue chevy suburban benito's new the figure as a leg the trickster god he advised his men to watch the ranch and to gather as much information as they could quickly before beginning to make arrests it was clear but the hernandez family what's up too far more than their regular marijuana smuggling with the help of some local informants arrests were made on april ninth sarah fien his uncle eleo david valdez sergio martinez salinas and the caretaker of the ranch were all taken into custody but none of them seem afraid they were calm and confident as if despite the cubs tightened tinder around their wrists they remained untouchable it was the caretaker who finally identified mark kilroy through a photograph instated but he saw him at the ranch yeah i saw him the caretaker said and then pointed at the shack direct he told officers he had seen mark gilroy on the hernandez this property still handcuffed in the back of a truck investigators were caught off guard why would they kidnapped a tourist and what did have to do with coach statue seen on the phone the federal is attention was fixated upon surfing hernandez surprisingly he started to talk it seems like even as he confessed he believes he would be protected by the man he called adrenal godfather it was next to put reno's witchcraft but he was able to move unheard an unseen before their eyes of law enforcement certainly surfing complete negligence of april first police blockade made sense yes the young men confessed they had killed more liberal specifically he said this marquess chosen at random because padrino ordered his men defined a white anglo mailed to sacrifice surfing had help and yes he continued they had killed many others to seventeen identified adolfo concerns as padrino the leader of the colt but the man was unheard of he said mark kilroy was killed by constanze within the shady blow and that his body was buried at the ranch police need proof on april eleventh they let surfing in the four other suspect back to the ranch where surfing agreed to show them where mark was killed and buried they were shown to the small shack their rear of the property during previous investigations he's had gone unnoticed the moment seventeen opened the shack stores these officers in attendance realized their mistake it reached a death they ordered surfing inside to drag out the mysterious objects that they saw on the floor it was a cold trend inside with a collection of sticks small objects and shapeless score the federal aid could make out a piece of hair nodded to the blood inside the iron pod with the human brain goat's head chicken feet a turtle herbs horseshoe coins mixed with animal blood now convinced they demanded to know where mark was buried surfing pointed to a patch of raised dirt wear thin metal rod portrait did he explained but the wire with attached to mark spinal column so that when the boy's body decayed they would pull the wires through the dirt to retrieve his spine and turn the vertebrae jewelry it would protect and serve explain surfing which made the big in the spot marked by the wire and before long the body of mark kilroy it was then the officers realized how many raised patches of dirt surrounded though that afternoon the suspects were forced at gunpoint spent several hours digging up the grade one smart kill released body had been exceeded the police observes that his legs were missing surfing explained the dnb tations were not a procedure of the ritual but they were done to simplify his burial they found fifteen mutilated bodies on the hernandez farm killed over a period of nine months incidentally they also found over two hundred pounds of marijuana hundred

[Rerun] Accelerated learning, peak performance and living the good life
"Mm-hmm welcome to the psychology podcast where we give you insights into the mind brain behavior in creativity i'm dr scott barry kaufman and in each episode i have a conversation with guest he will stimulate your mind and give you a greater understanding standing up yourself others and the world living hopefully we'll also provide a glimpse into human possibility thanks for listening and enjoy the podcast it's just a quick note that today's episode is going to be a rerun the next season of the psychology podcast will begin and later this year i haven't taken any break in five years of doing this podcast so i thought it was about time to take a step back and think about how it can make us a better experience for you all until then enjoy these episodes from our archives thanks so much for making time i know you're extremely busy but completed deleted we have a mutual friend josh way skin robe known for quite a long time always ask just texting about fifteen minutes ago gosh we'll hotel you're talking to scott kauffman i will i will raise money as greg yeah so you probably get like lots of the same kinds of questions so i thought you know try to take his to another higher level because in some ways we've had different we've had like powell path so i studied the science of high-performance the science of greatness all the stuff mine tire career and you've start you've been in the trenches right you've really been doing this firsthand my i was the last research assistant of simon as an undergraduate graduate and randy palace and i noticed that both of these individuals are people that that you talk about in in your own work yeah joe joe is the rainy pounds just to make sure of getting it right that's the last lecture he's done more i have his book face out in my living room so i see it every day and so cool yeah i took on the usability engineering usability design course at carnegie mellon on okay cool really the great guy and i learned a lot from him yeah so i've been i've been studying out and try to this this ten thousand hours will for quite some time in kind of a similar your way you have and i i just want to point out how it's different from how others are trying to buckets so other people my field have observed the debunk ten thousand our role by saying we'll look look ericsson really demotes the value of talents so that they're missing that part of the picture and arguable no that's not that's not quite the point there the point is you can really go up that learning curve really fast and it's not completely just because of talent it's because of all these other factors of like really knowing how to learn knowing how how you know the the role of inspiration i talk about the role of of active learning strategies and things of that nature and so i read your stuff and i i see a lot of commonalities in the sense that you're saying like look we can really can cut like a eight tenth of the time to learn some stuff in it's not it just because the person's cutting eight tenths just because they're more talented than sonos so i wanted i wanted to directly explicit point that out how i think like you know our perspectives kind of converging are actually different from from the other the ten thousand hour mythbusters if that makes sense yeah data so i'd love to hear some of your own personal experiences like what you think think are maybe some of the main principles that can help rapidly accelerate up the learning curve despite the genes that you're born roads that would or in spite of digital camera to a lot of cases so i think that there are a number of factors and a the atlas of interplay in as you know that there's the inspiration dr intrinsic motivation or reward or punishment extrinsic motivation punishment reward but they're they're in full things that i tend to highlight when i'm trying to explain to people why it's possible to say as i did in my thirties go for not knowing how to swim i couldn't swim one lab to swimming forty laps in a session within a week to ten days in came down to looking at the assumptions assumptions in the infield the so called best practices and then for each of them asking what if i had to eliminate this or what if i did the opposite so so for instance a lot of people think of freestyle swimming i did which is swimming on top of the wire you kate really hard coal to propel yourself through the water the method that ended ended up solving problems is called total immersion and it's flips all of that on its head and reexamines the basic the flawed assumptions that underlie most sunnis structure so they don't kick as louis possible because it's an energy drain energy chasing and the heavy focus on alternating from your right side your left so you're not swimming on your stomach or chest as lot we'll thing you're alternating waiting almost as as in boat or vessel from extended fuselage right to extended fuselage left zimmer's and everything's he's focused on effort minimization they will come in and say all right if you feel like you're spending a lot of effort you're getting a good workout you're doing incorrectly and it was just such an incredible juxtaposition on everything i've been shown in including from some very very high level performers warriors and so that that brings the second point which is the best performers are not always the best teachers and this is particularly true they've been doing sunday they for twenty thirty forty fifty years in some cases because the into same way that if you're irish view that if you take a lot of people listening to this podcast their native english speakers if you had them try to take the test foreign language they would they might plug it because if you ask them you know listen i mean anything in something quick quick quickly their minds they've never actually had consciously sink that they've been doing the i totally fell yeah and and slowly so you wanna look for you or someone you can emulate they don't have to be a teacher say someone who is hated who's made the most progress in a period of say six months or twelve months and surfaced insecure trailer das- there's a woman who recorded as improvement over a year in a one or two minute trailer and you try to reach out to someone like that or a news of a gente young guy from the UK who wanted to try to become the top table tennis ping pong players in the UK in span of the year he recorded the entire process who's going to have more in terms of insight on thai hi turnarounds who's done that or somebody who has been following the textbook for twenty years and i would argue informa- seeking those types of people out at which is very very easy because you can spend a little bit of time google and just search for controversial such-and-such player controversial such and such coach and that will give you the leads that will lead to all sorts of other all sorts of other gold mines and i think that also there's a there's a misunderstanding from a lot of people who say harp on ten thousand hour rule using his excuse not even you try and that is debut learning or skill acquisition is a linear process and so he had an accident cutting it right down degree angles and i don't think of it that way and they must be in in the scientists don't l. options training another thing too busy correct me if i'm talking on my answer a sigma function right so it looks like an s it's been rabbi the liens in an extended so you have this this slow very gradual ascent then this hockey stick was shoots up into the sky and then appointed diminishing returns where it's very slow and that's very slow point is where i think you get that's where a lot of intelligent roared is ball when trying to go from today the number five best cellists in such symphony to the first seat okay that's that's a slog right there i mean you have to put in a ton of time for gene game whereas mine over eagles to just say look it's commonly said you have to spend a lifetime learning language that's complete BS i mean you can become what most people would consider or conversational and fluid in almost any language in my opinion in six months in absolutely i used to consider as bad at languages no just relegated looking at too many times for myself and for people to think otherwise you think trae anyone anyone is a big word i would say the vast majority of people and so my job is to show people how to chop off that first point hartland soup to get to is that hockey state as quickly as possible now they hit that are they invested in we'll know they're going to be functionally fluent and you can get though i think the top five percent in the general operation almost any skill in six to twelve months just seem to do many examples and there are two things that say to that number one a specific learning based on everything i've seen in research have read i think adults can learn languages far faster than children reason that they atypically don't is because they've mortgages and jobs obligations were choice it's a it's a option whether they choose to study you're not and if you take a kid and throw them into kindergarten in different language what choice do they have a and b the allegations so it's more a function of mystics this network hoxha has done some very state researchers but called in other words is little out a little old i think everything i've seen working with tech startups created with a route force's sarajevo getting on my soapbox because i get amped up the second thing is the the second thing is that is very dangerous to focus on average is in exclude the outliers when it comes to examining peak think performance and so they'll say well on average people top by percent sleep next number of hours per night and do this and do this but the average can be very misleading in in the way the you know if if bill gates walks into a bar the average net worth fifty million dollars in that remember reading story by arisen about warren buffett and us being sort of harangued by efficient market theorists who who sailed the markets inc all the information available therefore while blah blah and you say well we'll look mr buffet we don't believe in stock picking if you you had a ten thousand rantings flipping quarters eventually just by sheer chance and probability you would have ten who seemed to be master coin flippers it heads all the time and they would go off and write books about how to flip coins me tons of money doing that and that was intended to kill buffett's argument he said well fine that's true he said but there's one small place in omaha that seems to manufacture these these magical coin flipping ranked tanks over and over nourian you find it concentration julia fashion you should research that and you can find these kind of mutant factories for all sorts of skills i mean whether it's chess us whether it's jujitsu like the school is co owned by mutual friend of ours josh white skin with marcelo garcia ten time champion you can find these batteries tennis they're all out there you just have to try down just wanted to take this moment

become a sponsor so thanks again for your incredible support of the show over the years you know i do the show for you all because i truly love sharing my enthusiasm and love of the mind brain creativity and i really appreciate you joining me on this journey okay now back to the show yes i saw an interview did a while ago can you you've mentioned that you're really interested in the education space and then you made a call you said if anyone you know i wanna talk to mortgage caters wanna be in this world if i can help you at all with that that world that's the world ryan habit you know i'm more than happy to help you because i you know there's so many deep implications for what you're doing for curriculum and teacher training and i'm wondering if you enter that space at all if you ever thought about actually creating like a you know a some sort of like teacher training curriculum that really can help students weren better enjoy learning i i first of all thank you wish the arbor secondly i head literally deeply and there are a few observations i've made a few experiments initiatives sir i focused on so what i realized early on is that i am good at curriculum i am bad at politics and exciting certain aspects of public education the united states are as much a political issue if not more political issue and had a lot to do with paychecks maintain the status quo in ways than it has to do with improving education for for kids or dawson US now that said what i decided to do living silicon valley as i do and having a lot of involvement with tech startups of scientific is on trying to use might platforms armenians lever for a couple of startups that i think are developing solutions that are highly like scale also for instance there's one called dual lingo i was one of the first investors do linger dueling offers free language learning tools and they're very effective yeah and it was co created by co founded by luis von ahn an party mellon who is a science professor and was the creator of recapture so the captured more intelligent hatch fields where you'd have to fields and everyone seeing these though this review not room up and the first one they know the introduce x. y. b. hashtag or whatever and you fill out the next one is actually taken out of a book that has been hard to transcribe the machine can't read and so it was used for transcribing books have this altruistic purdis which is very cool obviously look at the responses to save thousands of lusala same image you answered so do a lingo at this point is is educating more people helping to learn more languages for free than the entire us political assistance at least k through twelve so it's been a very good investment of time and energy so the lateral perch the second is is called no red ink were very interesting the people's check out and it's flown under the radar but it's intended to help teachers inch don't want students to learn english english grammar and a writing more effectively difficult to teach injury time consuming to correct iraq and it's a very slee elegant solution to longstanding problem in kirkland millions and millions and millions of senses is on time now in that has huge implications for other areas of education and expediting the entire process helping to uh-huh automatically create content appeals to the interest of the students they would select amish just be myrtle lakers this this this would help generate content or find content that they're interested in the that's when they write about as opposed to mary chase's bob with the dog or some something like that so i- mostly focused on technology as an exponentially growing into a tool for really scaring doing things effectively at some point i'll probably tackle political issues but quite frankly that's not my not my superpower to impatient undiplomatic title matt i think what you're not in peace to your interesting an interesting combination of traits in one human so so you yeah so you're like i mean i read about array i call creative people messy mind i people have messy minds because they have this ability to inhabit seemingly contradictory traits in one in one thing and they're actually really creative people are really good at quickly switching between different personality dimensions right so you're you said you're impatient but you're you're you're impatient the sense that in you're existential inpatient so this is what i'm seeing is that you're existential impatient doesn't i would call you a patient i would call you essentially impatient you realize you have one life and you you want to maximize this life that you live in and you're you're probably maximizing this life more than probably anyone on this planet right now but you're but at the same time you do have great reflection in the sense that you really follow feedback so you really can take fischbach quickly and use that to do it but i don't see i don't think everyone has the same not everyone's area where they're able to really learn from feedback well what do you think are some of the obstacles blocks mindset blocks they're stopping people from acquiring feedback so well and then moving forward in their skill development not a fair question yeah question i think there are of course different prices of feedbacks self-generated event where for instance your workouts or lead louis measurements an easter to spot trends and associations in you can go oh my god i didn't realize is is i realized a few days ago beating out fewer than thirty grams of carbs per gay for awhile to measure teton concentration in blood but not but if you have for me personally carbohydrate tolerance pooja that has eight grams carbohydrates even and once in two or three days it will it will screw up mind metabolic jackets for like three or four tried the only way i figured that out though is buying tracking and writing things down saw all the first thing would be know thy self in the way you do that is by determining what measurable you're going to follow if you're trying to learn serve you try to learn swimming what are the numbers that you're tracking you can make these up you can also borrow measurements so in swimming i didn't have any measurement insult total gin and had to have this new TV show converse firm entire episode on swimming since already has swim we took someone who couldn't even really go ahead of the water and tried to make to a open ocean long distance swimmer freestyle in three or four days which was very intense but but the the measure their that you use is strokes per lap that tells you how efficient you are so you try go for say thirty strokes per route down to twenty down to fifteen and it's an indicator of energy conservation efficiency agency so similarly you can you can find these minerals choose objectives tracking in terms of accepting feedback for other people you need to find teachers who can give you the why and not just the how says it's very typical for instance i refused to learn alphabet until first grade and i said so by my kindergarten teacher jobs not happy about my mom was even less happy about being has learned the dan alphabet because i tell you so in that didn't work for me so i'm doug in my heels i resisted i think love will have this kind of experience with teachers or coaches physicians thirty where you're like well wait a second no i won't understand why and your seven year old talking to a forty year old they wanna punch face they don't give you anything so it's word weren't find people who are willing to sit down explain the why so josh weights get on to those who don't know his name inspiration for searching for bobby fischer the book end the movie inserted chest prize he so in in the tv episode where i was combining learning chess engine soon saying week which turned turned out to bite off and very injury rich for the digits josh would say he would explain why he's teaching chess in reverse right so instead of starting with openers everyone does he starting with king ponders king to teach deep principles polls in USA in joshua said this big look recreating smaller circles i mean by that is we're taking the micro something jerry small grass right not too many pieces ruling canavan versus king to heat you deep powerful principles right like opposition and and so on sell josh is great explaining why in then you can barrels anyhow if you can bear his training regimen oh you'll yeah well especially if you have to have a certain degree show tolerance for that but the the the why and then but for feedback for me is is really peter drucker the management games business minded writers what gets gets managed and i think that's true so so until you start measuring and it can almost be arbitrary it will affect your behavior remember there's a study done study blanking on on the researchers but they were looking at whether turning the lights up or down in offices increase work productivity and what they found was whatever any change they made improved productivity because people do they're being monitored and yet there we go okay so the author of that good i can thank you i needed to leave soon says very similar by also hello i'm gonna give you a bottle of pills and they're called placebo magic and they're full of you know whatever sawdust months just means jeans on is obviously but it's when i say you're gonna take one of these before every meal chances are probably lose weight because they're forced just as a pet with a patterning trump became more conscious of what they do and that's why you want to lose weight and you're on a diet just take a picture of every meal you have and send it to your fittest friend and our hey we get things from me now diet speak works really well it's a great idea you know i think about positive psychology in meter tendon is not it you know achievement is one part of the pillar perma model you also have positive experience positive emotions and relationships positive relationships are important engagement and meaning being in life all these things are important and so you you hinted that when you talk when you talked about success is not just being achievement but also appreciation i'm all right yet s. i think adopt tells roy nicely with some of the principles of positive psychology i think to live a life of wellbeing not just hedonistic wellbeing which is but really a deeper sense awesome role being there needs to be more than just achievement so it'll it'll be yeah you're a hundred percent i think that i i think that for particularly title personalities linked to pat themselves back for achievement but that's that's almost hardwired as your default i think that's the easy part and the hard part that i've tried to focus on increasingly is it is not my natural instinct or are reflex is to pause and appreciate what you've accomplished or what you've done those things you have in your life the health of your friends family et cetera in a very conscious way because achievement without appreciation on a personal level at least is is pretty pretty close to meaningless and i know money does not fix because it's it's too high maslow's hierarchy of needs money money can only really check off boxes at the lower end and i know people in that hundreds of millions dollars who are miserable and and i think harshly drives allow them to make that much money is is something that prevents them for living in the prisons the present state they're constantly constantly planning for the next big thing the next big thing the next big thing and they always feel like they're losing now this is part of the human condition i mean whether it's band search for meaning victor frankel or looking at a lot of the tackle cons of today of the challenges are the people face similar and so i have the habit of using a five minute journal that isn't technically a journal component that is listing things you are ready for salads branch berry self-help checking it is there's there's there's a lot a lot of data to support this practice in terms of self reported wellbeing and i find it really i mean three minutes in the morning three minutes tonight isn't enough to have a a not just a non trivial but -nificant impact on my quality of life and sense of wellbeing being feeling on rushed which is kind of ultimate luxury in my mind and it's also a reason why we lost loss the i i really feel like it's good operating system for living high stress environment while keeping things in perspective not overly emotionally responding responding to things like reacted animal now do i always get that right now on not all i mean i'm a bowler in china shop most of the time so we all make mistakes but hopefully ah fewer how you define appreciation are you talking about there's all sorts of kinds of appreciation you can appreciate others other other people right you can appreciate the there's lots of different shades of appreciation what do you mean when he used the word when i used to were done so glad you asked these pick you the definition so this this is our to be perfectly frank i think i use it a lot without defining a break clearly think about the context in which i use it successes is not really dangerous where that's early unhappiness also really use the really squirrelly age out the w word yes it will order order for appreciation i think free it is it is simply recognition recognizing valuable now and that would be my attempt my stab at a detonation but then he when i write things down it's literally that and when i write these things down actually got this advice firm from tony robbins who i that guy is a impressive specified says there's a lot of that guy is a shower how has soup yet when he eight when he puts together these lists for himself guinea advice which was you get right down the big things so to speak which are the i'm grateful for the health also of my mom dad i refill four film length but he said i always put it in one day jerry fleeting and seemingly small like the two clouds looking at past the industries as window looking at right now i was like oh there are really smart to train yourself the more observant of tiny details because the small things are the big things do you notice the small things i think that that you can have a feeling of being lost even you're killing it even if your slay dragons hitting ruts so that's that's why i try and think about mindfulness is obviously can be helpful for that right huge lose huge meditation is a dirty word you was for for me for very long gone then start with guided meditations use an athlete head space as or call one the ego sam harris or make it easy rig the game win in the beginning definitely promote your show which is next week and my right is coming out next week yeah yeah launches the twenty eighth tuesday so that's kind of the big day right we'll get this episode immediately i'm very respectful of your time taylor's won't ask you one question the bigger this is an executive producer tower christ on you'd fans so yeah you do something i love so much about your writing is how focuses people in on what it means to live a good life you know i think sitting down with your books gets people all to reflect on their values on their goals on their priorities in just how to live a more philosophically satisfying existence and it's kind of property we were talking about this really tim i'm wondering what would it mean for for you for tim ferriss who lived a good life if you take bird's eye view and and look back and pointed maybe two or three things you've done and just say you know i did i did okay thirty three thirty nine thirty six less so i thought about this in actually truck a seminar that focused on a lot of fluids stuff like aristotle donnellan whatnot but trying to find gula what does that mean and i think for me would come down to this is is going to sound cheesy but it's hard not when you're trying to give in overarching into this but i'd say to chew would have loved to been loved took never stop learning by check those three boxes especially the first third than things will turn out just fine and it's the order or the lugging the act of of loving oh bang others and wrapping gratitude into that all the layers that includes i i think radiates outward end topples alive live domino's in satisfy a lot of needs in alternately enhance his performance all things in the achievement bucket so yeah to love beloved never stop learning bring in in terms of three things i've done man hopefully the next three things i do i suppose but i want to convince people that to get superhuman results all you need is better set of questions and better a better tool kit and just seen hundreds of thousands of examples now where for instance where our body comes out and people like my god that's crazy that's saying i can't do that only that's tim ferriss says why do it in every in every single chapter whether it's the breath holding jump altered duran's fat loss must be any of this though i have reader examples samples that had far outstripped but i've done and that is my goal is to hopefully time leaves planet create thousands or tens of thousands of war of aster will plus lawyers who in turn can be teachers teachers and past that skill set disseminate that more and more people i think that's how you get think that's how you get problem solvers and innovators can really unsolved and creates an interesting thing so that's what i'm aiming for you know one one booking a TV show at the time of it i wish you all the best him in the thanks i hope educators listener messages as much as business leaders do me to meet you man so low we'll grab some wire southern shamal naphtha learning personality fun i'd love that dusty thanks for listening to the psychology podcast cast i hope you enjoyed this episode if you'd like to react in some way to something you heard i encourage

This is not a vice nor should it be considered a site you're discretion is advised. This is especially true on live shows doing now. Chaz gonna tell us about some hearing aids said he uses gary. Thanks yes i have. I pro air stealth elite review so as as most people know you can kinda gas. We talked about these few months ago. Probably four now when they first came out They were nice enough to send me a set for review and you know in the basically they are an electronic hearing protection that is in your ear so it goes in your ear That's pretty much the essentially what they are But we'll get into more later. They're kind of a small lightweight package. you can see one on the video here but it's much better if you go to the actual review and find stuff But you know. I was pretty curious to try these out They have the benefits of like you said the electric sound cancelation. They are an earbud style. they have an attractive price. There like a hundred and fifty nine thousand nine m srp So they are less expensive than some of the one a lot of the others on the market that makes something like this They also have an addition of a bluetooth. Lanyard that comes with them so if you would like to use a bluetooth music or something to that effect Phone calls stuff like that. They have that they actually have quite a few specifications on them. They have a pretty good nor is reduction rating especially when you compare them to others It's twenty eight decibels they are. I p exc- rate six rated so what that means basically as you could drop them in water like a puddle or something. Pick them up. They'll still work of course if you sweat a lot though work in that if you're out pouring down rain they say they're gonna work there too They wait twenty eight grams. so it's not like they really way anything Does come with a neck lanyard besides the bluetooth. So if you drop one out of your ear you don't lose it. Basically is what that amounts to. It's basically some sort of braided cord and it plugs in the same place bluetooth plugs in a tiny little connector on the end and it just plugs right in of course it comes in a nice little carrying case Has a huge number of comparable foam for better noise. Attenuation on the little things on the earbuds or silicone tips and depending on which you prefer as a bunch of these little kind of ear hooks to help hold them in. I actually used the ear hooks. I don't know if you need to. They say it can help. Hold them in. So i figured use everything basically it comes with a bunch of them so you don't have to worry about fitting your ear. The noise cancelation has three different modes or actually to an off. Each earbud has a tiny switch on them. And i'm going to click over here to my my camera so if you're actually watching you can see that it's got a little switch on it and it's kind of hard to see in this camera so never mind. It's good thing as a podcast and you don't have to worry about hearing it But basically the little switch it has zero a one and then two in roman numerals Zero settings off of course so you know or they call it isolation so it's basically just like a normal earplug when you're using that particular setting than the one setting is that what they call awareness and then they have the to setting which is for amplification. Of course we told you about the offsetting. The awareness setting basically allows you to hear surroundings stuff like that but basically it's like what you hear normally it's pretty much the same volume as you hear talking to somebody so it's not amplified or anything but you still are able to hear if somebody yells achard says. Hey what are you doing stuff like that. And then there's the amplification setting and as implied it amplifies. They say five times normal volume and anything about decibel ratings. Five times is not like it's not exactly five times. I mean it may be on this but to me. It sounded more like about two three times louder more like three. But and that's why i figure on the decibel curves. It's five times normal but it's really but either way it's louder so it's easier to hear sounds and of course if there's like a gunshot or something super loud that goes off it it stops the loud sounds and cuts it so you are the hearing safe part works just like electronic earmuffs would When it cuts out sound on either the ice on either the one or two setting the awareness or amplification. It does a great job I didn't have any problems. Like he thinking it didn't work. Well is basically what i was saying. I used them. I've used them quite a bit at like the and stuff like that so they got plenty of us Which made it kinda nights They do however run on battery. Which i i was kind of like an and it's a number ten hearing aid battery so it's super tiny and has got a little door on each one of the earbuds that goes in. He closed the door. And it's good so each. Each battery lasts about eighty hour. And you know that's not too bad so if you were to wear them and say your job you get a couple of weeks worth out of them but the other thing is is like if you want sixty those batteries you can get them on amazon for like fifteen to twenty bucks so basically for twenty bucks you get you can get one hundred days straight of use out of these even though you have to change matters so when you figure it out that way. It doesn't sound as bad as you know. Hey these rechargeable or something like that. They're also a little smaller diameter. because they use the battery and are not rechargeable. Now the bluetooth lanyard is rechargeable. You know they say gives about nine hours a use. of course. It has up down on pair buttons all the normal bluetooth stuff It has these tiny little connectors that you just literally plug into the bottom of the headphone and they snap in and they hold fairly securely but different thing about the with the bluetooth is the actual earbud acts independently. So you if you have an off the bluetooth or sound or anything like that is all controlled by the bluetooth itself so if you turn it on like amplify to hear noise outside it's that particular sound is completely done by the little earbuds themselves. You know that's kind of cool They also have limiter in the somewhere in there. So you can't turn the volume past one hundred ten decibels which i think one hundred and ten is still ear damaging but i guess it's not like some headphones where you can just keep turning them up. So that's that's another good thing about him you know i'll get into how they actually worked for me Like i said they got a lot of range use. They did a really good job of letting my here. My surroundings wall cutting out gunshots from other bet's etc like the battery life worked out good I did notice that when the batteries start to get low. You hear kind of a crackling sound not like wind noise but like a crackling sound and i just learned that. Okay so when. I hear that replace battery and it goes back to normal. So i'm guessing the electronics with low battery. Just don't work as well. Not a big deal. They supposedly have a slight Windshield in them and wind. Meaning air blowing They still picked up quite a bit of wind noise. And they amplify if you're on like the amplified setting a my over the earmuffs pick up no wind noise to sell. It didn't really bother me. It was just something to mention. If you have a lot of wind. You're gonna get wind noise They actually stick out of the your ear. A little farther than i expected them to Just be by design So i was worried about shooting rifles or shotguns with them Like hitting it when you mount a shotgun or something like that. So of course. I went out and tried. It used them for a while with like shotgun mounting and mounting it. Same with rifles. Ar's had zero problems with didn't even hit him at also. I don't think that's a problem. After i after i used them. I realized that they don't stick out enough to cause problems. I actually prefer them over. My electronic muffs especially in hot weather. 'cause they keep your ears and head cooler because over here does get hot and they weren't quite well The principal foam eartips are really comfortable. I warm couple times. Eight plus hours on range like i got there early. Shot like some steel all day and they didn't cause any discomfort. Of course your comfort level may vary depending on everything else so basically go check them out if you're in this kind of market for something like this for hearing protection You know they're easy. The carrying case like three inches by three inches by like an inch thick. So you can pretty much throw him anywhere and use them so we'll get into the firemen cider. Eight key points of course. Their claim to fame in air electronic noise reduction hearing protection target market. People that don't like earmuffs style or just anybody. Wanting any ear hearing protection of course the features and benefits they have a twenty eight decibel noise reduction rating. They are six graded they have that amplification mode awareness mode and is the latest mode. Says they have the windshield. I don't know how well that worked. They are earbuds style. does have the rechargeable bluetooth lanyard You know and it includes all the foam and silicone tips that you need to get them to fit There is some what others are saying in the review. If you want to get there and there are some links to other of us one of them is some site global surfer whatever it is but then there's actually some somebody on pro wear site quick reviews we would put it in what others are saying but they literally wrote her whole reviews so i put that lincoln there just to help it out. You know because it's basically a review price point hundred fifty nine ninety nine from them You can get them on amazon for about one hundred forty six blocks so if you need it now either. Pro ears or amazon are rating the pros. They have good sound reduction. They do come with rechargeable. Bluetooth lanyard Argument of earpieces is great. They are comfortable and the three different sound hearing protection choices. It's not a volume knob like there is on your normal earmuffs electronic ones but it still works very well for what it is The cons is the wind noise the static when the battery gets low. And they're not quite as quiet to me as my regular over ear muffs. Not that. I'm worried about my hearing because they have a good enough noise reduction rating. It's just. I did notice little difference between those two so the score i gave it was seven of the which is good. So do you guys got. I had questions yes. Do they have an automatic shut off on them for when my dumb ass leaves on how to change the batteries. Every single i the range they do. Not so you you have to. You'll have to change the batteries. That's how i luckily my over ear do not match. I don't have to keep stock in tripling. But because i i always figured determine hearing protection office bummer but i guess you know with cam you. That's kind of what i figured that. That was one of the thoughts. I thought it like. Okay they use batteries. At least the batteries are cheap. And even though you live in the boonies but like all the normal like somewhat chain stores around here Have them it's not like you can't literally just go to the store and buy them. You don't have to order amazon. But of course you know. They're more expensive at the stores. Rob tony businesses. Well the thing is is pro is is not a huge company so it really you would be supporting a small business by ordering some of these or they have a bunch of other introduction to so type not like there. Isn't that okay. Well now that the reviews done we can get into the products discussion. I put four things in here tonight because some of them are going to be pretty quick just kind of one of those things first up we have their rossi rio bravo ms rpm on. This one is three hundred one dollars and fifty two cents to ninety nine ninety nine not three hundred but three oh one fifty two. Don't ask me why rossi does stuff like this but this is. This is a lever action. Twenty two it's basically. There are ninety two but they put black polymer furniture on And the rest of it has a black metal polished for finish not and they put some funky weird sights on it just saying now. I don't really care for the plastic but we'll get into that in the second it does have a fifteen round capacity I don't know if to mount magazines are still legal in jersey. But tony is going to tell me one hundred percent. Okay like you said lever action. It has fiber optic sights Fully adjustable does have a cross bolt safety. Eighty two point seven ounces. So what five pounds. Basically somewhere around there. It is an eighteen inch barrel overall length thirty six inches. Essentially now i can understand why some people would want polymer furniture just for the fact that you know would if they get wet and stuff like that i get it. I don't think this furniture is the prettiest in the world. Okay for my opinion is pretty ugly. I do like however that as with most of their stuff it is a straight handle lever action and a straight stock. It doesn't have a pistol grip. Which i think works better for lever actions personally but other than that unlike you know. I don't know what you can get them for well right now amazon but before that you know they were probably to sixty or something looks. And i like i like rossi's it's not lewd. I'm putting the down. I just putting down the plastic furnish I've shots were aussie twenty two. Oh i kind of the sites are kinda. Hokey looking their way huge. I i just don't get huge huge so that that's my thoughts on it but other than that you know. Hey it's something different. Well here's the thing. I was checking it out. Rachi has some smooth stuff but understand when dealing with rousey twenty two at this price point. They cut corners. I guess i mean it's not gonna. I was watching one of the guys and he was trying to be as a generous possible. Talking about the finish. Wasn't that great The sites a big. It has that high Hi viz front sight. They look like they don't even belong on this gun at all. It's like they got remember when while. Not marley mossberg made the modern looking lever actions that series year faintly. Yes okay so they still make it. They used to have a twenty two and it seems i was just on their site and they got rid of it. They don't no longer have the twenty two version of the lever action on their site So it looks like they were trying to do a little modernisation on a lever action but still keep the traditional stock and now you just have stepped in made it just half is ugly as it possibly could be And truthfully is shot out jersey and henry but the henry lever action twenty two comes in like three seventy so for seventy dollars more can have a much better looking shot Rifle but you know it is what it is. But it's more traditional looking and they make good looking stuff pluses here in jersey plus support the diversity shoot. So what can i say yes. This is true. What can you say. I said it already. Henry henry has a better looking than right difference right. Now if you're gonna pay ms rpm on both of them now see my thing. Is this more than likely before you still gonna pay full price for henry before kovic and you probably would have paid about two fifty to sixty for this rossi. But now that everybody's charging ms rpm above you might as well go for the better rifle. If like seventy dollars right. I got you rob zane anything. I'll take their silences now. Yeah so that was the it's your thing. Go for it. You and that. That's the thing. Is you know if i like. Lever action rifles. It's and you know it's just one of those things it's just like. I'm just like you know they're normal. I will say rossi's normal henry. Lebron twenty two. I think. I prefer the the henry but but they make their rossy with wood. And it's like three hundred and forty seven bucks. It's like you're saving forty bucks forty five bucks for plastic furniture and weird sites. And i'm like i would just by the would one so were the handwriting did or the henry. So i'm with you guys. I understand but you know some people might look at this and say. Hey that's kind of cool or by one just for their collection because it's different and it's probably not going to be around for a long time. Those twenty twos from osberg weren't so that was the rossi. Rio bravo the next up Tim knee came out with a sea scorpion trigger. I'm not sure what the put for. Ms rpm it's listed as to twenty seven ninety nine on their site but if you read their description as as ms rpm to forty nine ninety nine so hey it's somewhere in between that but you know i thought sea scorpions pretty popular I thought i'd throw this in here. Because i'm sure it's a pretty decent trigger you know not. Everybody makes stuff for the sea scorpion. So they brought out the trigger Factory pull wait. It's between two and three quarter and three and three quarter pounds. So i'm guessing most of them will probably fall in trading quarter to three and a half bounds. Pull wait i thought that was kinda. You know that's a nice thing does come with their lifetime. Hassle-free warranty it is occurred trigger. Shoe doesn't look like they have like straight one yet. If that's what you like either could trigger a. I'm just going off of news reputation. Price doesn't seem out of the ballpark. Not everybody makes scorpion triggers cell. I thought i'd throw eight here so you guys could go buy one and tell me how nice is. Because i don't have a scorpion. Tony what you don't either. I really don't i would. actually. I actually wouldn't mind owning easy scorpion but i'm not super big nine millimeter rifles. So but i would probably put a trigger on it because you know any better trigger is better okay if someone gave me a rifle i don't take it but right now living in jersey all the cool things that make the scorpions scorpion. I can't really have the folding stock. All that stuff. So i might as well. Just stick with the nine millimeter. Pcc exactly yeah rob sane. I don't have a scorpion. And i don't have any trigger. I can't really speak to either side of this. Okay gotcha yeah. Timmy makes good triggers. If you've got scorpion. And you want a better trigger gopher. that's you know that's kind of cell. That was the. Tim sees corp interior. Like i said some of these are going to be pretty quick next. This is nice. I like this. I mean it's not like we're still super quick on this stuff up. Next mac defense loved it moving along g nineteen mac comp and barrel ms rpm three twenty five so what does is is when you say competent barrel. It's a combo as three hundred twenty five bucks but when you think about it three hundred twenty five bucks for a barrel match grade barrel and compensator. Combo is not a bad price. Jen one through five. Basically they have different options or and you can get two different comp sizes you can get the zane. So it's not called design it's though it's called the stubby and it's a it's a single port call and then and then you could get the the chad which is the half chubb which is three port calm but there is no tony in there. And it's like the stub the have really obese largest pound for pound So basically you can get your choice The the stubby basically allows this to fit in g seventeen holster without any modifications. In of course it's only a single point calm so you know it's not gonna work as well as the three point but hey that's what you get Also does mention that. If you do run the half job you might need to lighten your recoil spring depending on but they are both made with four sixteen are stainless steel barrel. Which isn't p pq black nitrite coded It's a thread list design. And this is where this is where the this really shine. So it is legal in california because it doesn't have threads so it might be legal in jersey because it doesn't have trans- And it's a cop not a flash hider but basically it uses some sort of clip that attach is the compensator to the barrel. And so you don't have to index it. You don't have to do anything but put it on. Put the clip in. You're good to go It is a one in ten. Twist barrel let's see kanter bored muzzle end so that it protects the muzzle. The comp is also black night-ride coded It's a top only designed so all the gases actually directed upward none out to the sides or anything like we said before it is self timed. There's no twisting twisting cops chewing up your frame or set screws to screw it on or anything to that. Effect doesn't include the tools for easy removal and like i said it includes that retention clip. You know dane actually was the one that sent this to us and said about it. And i i was looking at it and i'd like you know that's kind of a cool combination i know. Typically on the polymer eighty g nineteen size. I have i run. I have a separate comp. So i run a threaded barrel and if you stick it in a g seventeen holster sticks out a little bit because it's more like the three report comp on this and it's a nice it it actually makes a nice carry setup you know you get a little extra boost from the comp you know. It doesn't really add any length per se. I mean the length is in your pants. Not not where it. Actually the of the gun shows so. That's a big bonus. That's about all. I have to say about it. So now we'll let zimmer with a larger What is it the half chubb is bigger. I believe that one is set up to make the gun but nineteen the same link as the lead the extra hundred light so it would fly it one or the x flush is like important to you or whatever I actually got to see the prototype of this back. In june a body mine kind of designed it and put it into production with matt defense which mac makes good stuff that are the ones who cut my side It's just very interesting in the. I like the fact that you'll have the time it. Because that's kind of from what i understand. The biggest pain is see people. There comes back out and what rocks at loctite you use. It seems teams come loose and that was what they set out here so i. I think it's neat. I might get one for my gen. Five The only thing with that for june five is the barrel so good on a gen. Fives already the only reason to replace your barrels. If you're gonna run a cop so it's an interesting design the way they just kind of recess. That'll ring in opposite clamp on to go. Yeah it's it's it is kind of a cool little design for it. Tony rob anything. I'm just looking at it as somebody who lives in jersey even though we can't have threaded barrels on innova pistol. It's still just one more thing that you don't have to worry about the timing or anything like that and it still looks cool for the grants and also would gets me. It works through what gen one through four yet in gen five version. I believe yes somebody who has a gen two glock nineteen. It's really cool to find something that works for my god. This is true. this is very true. Well rob nothing. I mean it looks pretty cool. And and like i said you know if you were to buy a match grade barrel or just a threaded barrel. Because you don't have it threaded barrel and then by a cop that some sort of threat comp. You're going to be in the same ballpark price range anyway. You can still take this one off and use it without the competent. You want so there's that you read protector her on or your barrel dylan right now. What makes me question is is Why does it give you the option of buying another spring steel retention clip. Do they come off. Because it's an extra twenty bucks if you wanna get an extra one. I'm thinking problems yet. So yeah i'm i'm figuring comes with a tool to take it off and i'm figuring they just expect people like me to drop it in the grass Because you can also get an extra you can get both sides cops with it if you would like right like as an option so defiance waiting out you lose springs and clips from what i saw back in june held very securely The guy ran it the actually the guy who designed it dress. He ran it through the entire two day course and he had zero problems with it. And that was the prototype so honestly navy you know any bugs. They did find a cool. I mean well you got designed to come off because you can't remove the company. I can take the barrel to clean it right correct. It's so it's a secret so he just you know like or like split splitting likes it comes with the tool to click it on and off But it looked like it was secure. My guest is the option for a second. Rallying is for when you lose the first one. Okay yeah it was just a question about durability. That's all i mean it's kinda like you know if if something like that some small and you can lose it we'll probably wind up blues darn things so so. It's good to have a backup. I couldn't imagine taking a single part of the field because if something happens to the gun and you need to use it you probably get your backup because this is going to be able to do any kind of field servicing of this without tools. Right but yeah. That's probably probably true. So i guess. That was the mac defense mac comp and barrel the next up we have the strike industries modular a are bowl catch. Ms rpm thirty. Four ninety five Seems like strike. Industries just keeps coming out with stuff basically. It's exactly what says it's a modular bolt. Catch pretty much. Works with mil. Spec air lowers probably a lot of bill at ones. But they don't guarantee if it'll work or not it has four so you put this in where your bowl catch goes. And then. It has four different removable and you can change a changeable Actual catches Let's see what are they have. They have a standard size they have an oversized a left extended button and a right button so they extended ones. They'll either got to the left or right. Depending on which way you if you're looking at the side with the bolt catch The oversized one. You know normal Those left and right ones look like they have a little more meat on the bottom to help you lock the bolt back Comes with all the stuff you need. Basically to install it and that pretty much covers the actual boat release. I've thought it was pretty cool because especially if you want something. You're not sure exactly. What kind of bolt release you want. You want something. That's not standard Like you want an oversized one. Well with this is the only thirty five bucks and it comes with your standard and the other three ones so you can try out figure out what you like you know and run it. Basically what it amounts to. I'm sure these guys probably won't have too much to say on it. But i'm sure there's something so hit the fact they get you. Get the options with. I'd seen this with a couple of different manufacturers of like mad releases for pistols where you can put different size paddles on it through seems a similar concept. I've personally never have problem with magazine. Thumb goes up press a button. But hey if you wanna know precisely and you got options for exactly. Yeah i was just actually checking out some of my rifles like right. Now going yeah. It's not a problem. I have with them but i can see you adding a little couple of centuries sary's if you want to your rifle i'm not gonna dog somebody out for doing it. It just better hold up so you better run your gun. There was it who was it. Who said maybe it was. Clint smith said that when you insert the mag garden you gene stone got together and oh look your thumbs right where it needs to end exactly. I'm just here checking it out right now. And i'm like i mean i'm good but hey look everybody's not some old school dork like me. It's like wow boom dot com time. it's loaded. I didn't do almost got it on camera for thirty. Four dollars for entertaining. Party can change it every time you go to a different class for every time you see your friends like hey. I got this new. I got this new release. Oh look i got another new release. You can do wardrobe fans on your gun. I i agree with you guys. I mean the bolt small boat release. I have on my in the state or size of works. Just bloody will fine now i. I'm with you. The i'm going to be the only thing that i can see the big advantage. I can see what this i never have. A problem releasing the bolt. It's when you wanna lock the bolt back without a magazine or with without i mean it having an increased pad on that section i can see might make a little advantage i. I'm not saying i have problems doing it without it. I've just saying a could make it a little easier for some people. I'm not saying no. I'm not saying it's a detriment at all right And yeah if any of them. I just get the one with the larger. That's probably the. That's probably what i would do. So so that was the strike industries. Modular are bolt catch. So we have some listener feedback.

Getting Rich Might Be Easier Than You Think
"Yeah Hi I'm Chris Kepler and welcome to does Assis- happened to you. I'm an actor voice actor audiobook narrator and writer. I love telling sharing stories about the strange experiences. My friends that I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily alien nominees a micro audio book about life and befuddle men just for you our story. This week is from BB. Nicholson who oh you'll find on medium DOT COM and here is getting rich. Might be easier than you think. I'm going to be rich. Don't laugh this is a slam dunk. I don't even need to publish bestseller or start a company. What's more I'll let you in on a secret? You too can avail yourself of this potential windfall. The beginning of my ride to riches occurred in the summer of two thousand thirteen gene on what started out as an ordinary day it ended as an ordinary day to but my assessment of the day as ordinary even even boring goes to show that the least significant activities. The stuff we are tempted to write off as forgettable are the things that catapulted catapult us to unexpected rewards. I remember the day. Well no or maybe not so well but I can reconstruct it. I was in the kitchen feeling those first pangs of hunger that surface when you've already had lunch and it's not time for dinner and you can't focus or do anything much until you've had something to eat. I could have reached for an apple or a banana but my craving was for something salty salty artificially flavored and devoid of all nutritional value. I reached for the giant variety snack. Pack I bought IT COSTCO CUSCO A few weeks earlier. Only to realize with dismay that all the potato chips and Fritos were gone. The only thing left was cheese. He's it's if you haven't figured out where this is going by now. You haven't read today's Wall Street Journal. The story is on page. Eighteen eighteen. Three women are suing. Kellogg's the manufacturer of cheese it because they feel misled and they want justice one the plaintiffs Linda castle purchase cheese. It's approximately three times in two thousand thirteen from Grocer in Torrance California her lawsuit and her pursuit of justice stem from the assumption that her cheeses contain more whole grain than the label would lead one to believe so what you might be thinking who cares if Linda Castle but she sits and believe she was consuming a health food. There's a sucker born every minute. According to P. T. Barnum. But here's the caveat. The cheeses were labeled whole grain and and although the box explains that they contained five to eight grams of whole grain for each twenty nine grams. Serving the plaintiff felt deceived received. Mrs Castle and the other plaintiffs are seeking damages other monetary relief and declaration corey relief. Whatever whatever that means although a federal judge dismissed the case ruling that the whole grains wording was factually correct and the label would neither mislead nor deceive a reasonable consumer the? US Court of appeals has reversed the dismissal. Here's where there I come in and maybe you if you've eaten cheese it anytime in the past eight years the plaintiffs want a class action suit consisting the of anyone in the US or its territories who has bought cheeses eight since two thousand ten. According to The Wall Street Journal there there are thousands possibly millions of people who bought cheese. It's all of whom munched away happily without formal complaint. The more I think about it the better I remember that fateful day when I reach for the cheeses I can still hear the bag. Cellophane Russell smell the cheesy odor. Her Savor the crunchy junk food. Taste my husband probably qualifies for the Class Action Suit to the other day. He fished just a bag of cheez. Its with a two thousand one expiration date from the back of the Pantry. I forget how good these things are. He said digging digging in his fingers dusted with the Telltale Orange Stain. That is the bane of all cheese at eaters. Especially those who sit on white white couches. Maybe white couch owners should sue to forget all the list as you've read about how to get rich you don't need to wake up at five. Am During Gay Spinach Yogurt Green Tea smoothie run eight miles and meditate chanting Prima all before four eight o'clock. After what you begin your workday with a single mindedness and positivity that would put zig ziglar to shame all you have to to do is dig deep and dredge up the memory of that single defining moment when you ate cheese. It's I have done it and you can too leftist. tis lawsuits proceed. Thanks so much for listening. If you enjoyed the story let me know and share it with your friends. Follow me at Kris K. K.

Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet terms apply. Welcome to brain stuff a production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bobo bomb. Here you gene, or gene shoemaker trained, astronauts and founded a new science born on April twenty eighth nineteen twenty eight Schumaker was one of the twentieth. Century's? Great minds, his work on impact craters affected, everything from Nasr's Apollo missions to the dinosaur extinction debate for his contributions to human knowledge, he was awarded the national medal of science by then president George H W Bush in nineteen Ninety-two, but a different honor eluded him shoemaker studied the moon from afar, but he often dreamed of climbing into a spacesuit and walking on its surface. Sadly, he never got the chance Addison's disease crushed his hopes of becoming an astronaut, but in nineteen Ninety-seven some of his ashes were laid to rest near the moon southern poll that made him the first and to date the only person to ever receive a lunar burial. It was a poignant epilogue to the man's career. Schumaker was a geologist by training and craters were one of his great passions. He helped confirm that the famous Barringer crater near flagstaff, Arizona crater that's five hundred seventy feet or one hundred seventy three meters. Deep was made by an asteroid impact. He also championed the hypothesis that another such impact killed last non avian dinosaurs sixty six million years ago and by mapping some of the craters on our moon. He revolutionized our understanding of its geology in nineteen sixty one the United States geological surveys set up an Astra geology research program shoemaker often considered the founding father of Astra geology was chosen to lead. It NASA would enlist his services to shoemaker joined future. Apollo astronaut on field trips to Barringer crater and other sites where he trained them to collect rock samples a perhaps seemingly simple skill set. But one would let them eventually bring home the first moon rocks humans ever saw and thus making all kinds of research possible. His work was instrumental to the discovery of the shoemaker Levy nine comet which struck Jupiter in one thousand nine hundred four one of the comments co-discoverers was Eugene's wife and fellow scientist Carolyn shoemaker cumulatively, gene. And Caroline discovered. One thousand one hundred twenty five asteroids and thirty two comments, but on July eighteenth, nineteen Ninety-seven. The couple was involved in a tragic car accident though Caroline survived. Gene was killed. The very next day shoemakers former student Carolyn Porco, devised a fitting tribute, a planetary scientist at the university of Arizona Porco learned that her mentor was going to be cremated. So she spearheaded an effort to put an ounce. That's twenty eight grams of his ashes aboard NASA lunar prospector spacecraft the cost of sending things into space can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars per pound in terms of time and energy and research. And so although physically small that single ounce is a huge tribute polycarbonate earn capsule was built by Celestis these same company that sent ashes of Star Trek creator, gene Roddenberry into orbit wrapped around shoemakers. Capsule was a brass foil ribbon bearing a picture of the Barringer crater and thematic quote from Romeo and Juliet. And when he shall die take him in cut him out in little stars. And he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun. With the precious cargo in tow, the spacecraft launched at Cape Canaveral Florida on January sixth nineteen ninety eight more than a year later the vessel whose objective had been to hunt for water with deliberately crashed near the lunar. South pole shoemaker's ashes went down with it. Celestis hopes to enter other human remains on the moon at some point. But for the moment, she maker has the place to himself Carolyn shoemaker said in the nineteen ninety eight press release it brings a little closure in a way to our feelings.

Japan This Week for March 1, 2019
"Well, the Japanese government says it won't scrap the relocation of a US military base in Okinawa. Even after it was soundly rejected by the people in a referendum. A ruling party lawmaker has left his party in disgrace and resigned from the legislature amid allegations he raped a woman and his criminal trial is about start. Shoveling snow. It's fun. It's good for you it brings positive vibes from others. Well, that's what they're saying in snowy Fukushima prefecture anyway. There's more child abuse in the news this week. Seems we can't go a week without it will tell you another head-scratching tale coming up. The Japanese space agency successfully landed a craft on an asteroid three hundred million miles from earth looking for clues to the universes origins. And a Tokyo University has delivered the world's smallest healthy baby. Boy, you won't believe this is when you hear it all this plus Japan today. Readers comments and commentary coming up so stick around. Hi, I'm Jeff Richards, and welcome once again to Japan this week, a quick recap of stories we've been following on the Japan today website. It's Friday March first two thousand nineteen. In politics. Our first story Japanese Prime minister Shinzo obey says the controversial relocation of a US military base in Okinawa will not be delayed despite a referendum on February twenty fourth that saw voters. Soundly reject the move Ave said it has been twenty years since Japan and the US agreed to relocate the futon base. And that it cannot be delayed any further now his comments come after seventy two percent of voters rejected the relocation plan in a non binding referendum. They just held the heavy U. S military presence has frustrated local residents for decades with problems ranging from noise and military accidents, like helicopter crashes and ship collisions to crime involving base residents to ease tensions the United States and Japan agreed in nineteen ninety six to move ten from its current heavily populated location to a more remote coastal site at henna co which is being built partly through land reclamation. Which will become Camp Schwab? Opponents of the move want to see the base relocated outside of Okinawa. Arguing responsibility for hosting US troops should be more evenly spread across Japan. Currently most of the US military presence is in Okinawa and down in at two Ye and your Costa in Konaga. Okinawa residents have elected governors opposed to the moving cluding, the current incumbent, Danny Tamaki who actually went on a trip to the United States last year as sort of promotional tour for why the base should be moved Ave said the government would continue holding a dialogue with the Okinawan people to gain their understanding of his decision to move forward with the relocation, well Japan today readers weighed in on that utilize tiny says clearly the majority of the people of okay now are against the new airfield, the Americans and Japanese do not care about the opinion of the Okinawan people, the Americans only want free bases and the Japanese want the Americans anywhere, but the home islands, you borrows view is. This this referendum should have been done decades ago. It should have been a message sent before things got this far along everyone prior to this including Okinawan politicians had their hands out for their cut. They wanted the money and Okinawa couldn't come to any conclusion. The national government has had enough. And look for ten is going to close and the landfill at Schwab will be completed some good points there yet see very divisible subject. There's money involved. There's jobs involved. There's the local residents concerns involved. I don't think we're going to get this thing sorted anytime soon. What do you think you live in Okinawa? Have you been to Okinawa? Are you in the US military stationed here in Japan? What do you think let us know at podcast at Japan today dot com. Well, our next story is out of politics as well. But this one I guess is also crime to a former liberal Democratic Party lawmaker the LDP is the current party in power has tended his resignation to the diet. The diet is the Japanese legislature after facing pressure to do more than just quit the party over allegations that he raped a woman he was dating in December COC tomato a forty six year old three time member of the house of representatives who formerly worked at the Bank of Japan resigned from the LDP last week but criticism has been growing from both the ruling and opposition parties over the scandal. The woman has filed a criminal complaint against about a Ian itchy prefecture alleging that he sexually assaulted her at her home while she was sleeping after a wining and dining session Tamata is also suspected to have taken photos of the woman with his mobile phone while she was naked, the weekly magazine shoe con Boone has announced on its website that it will soon. Report yet another allegation of his alleged sexual misconduct. Now, you need to visit us and stay tuned to Japan today for that story when it's coming out, but gets no sympathy from Japan today readers Duke Leto asks so why is he not sitting in detention awaiting the outcome of the charges or court case, why is he not a risk in tampering with evidence, such as the photos, he allegedly took with his mobile phone, double standards, Japan. I think would do Coletta's referring to here, of course, is Mr Carlos Gon who's currently sitting in detention and has been for a number of months for alleged financial misconduct at Nissan Motor company. Now, Simon Foshan has an answer for Duke Leto while naturally the LDP and their lackeys will be on damage limitation mode to protect themselves friendly judges and prosecutors won't see it as being in the public interest to make the ruling party look bad by subjecting its members to the same kind of treatment other suspects. Get both very valid comments. I guess. There are some perks that come with being a member of the ruling party, but nobody's above the law. And we'll see what happens with the trial. What do you think? Let us know. Your thoughts at podcast at Japan today dot com. In a crime sex in this week. Sadly, we have yet another story of child abuse. That is just as sad. And frankly pathetic as the ones we've reported in recent weeks police in Kagoshima prefecture have arrested a thirty one year old woman on suspicion of abusing her eight-year-old daughter in early February after she threw a TV remote control at her. Police said Saudi Takarno through the remote control at her daughter hitting her beneath the right eye. The girl had a swollen. Right. I am bruise on her face for about a week after the incident her grandfather, then took her to a police station and said he was concerned that she was being abused. Police contacted child welfare authorities who took the girl into protective custody police quoted to Connell as saying she lost her temper and through the remote control. But didn't mean for it to hit her daughter. They never do. Well, it turns out police have said that when the girl was in a nursery school in another city in two thousand twelve. She had burn marks on her body indicating. She may have been abused regularly. Police visited to Connor who told them her daughter had burned herself with a hot iron because kids always play with hot irons to Connell under daughter moved to Kgosi Ma in twenty thirteen in March twenty sixteen when the child was then in preschool staff noticed, what appeared to be burn marks on the girl. Police again question to Connell, but didn't think the situation warranted taking the child into protective custody. Well, let's hear what Japan today readers had say. So Bentley Twenty-eight isn't impressed by the police reflecting on the fact that police questioned to Connell, but didn't think the situation warranted taking the child into protective custody. He or she suggests this is the main reason some of these kids either end up dead or Beuys to the brink of death. If it's a child abuse case dig deep and drill the parents and questioned the kids separately because they might fear the parents absolutely true that and you might recall this from. Our story last week disillusioned says the child welfare authorities have a pretty tough call to decide whether the child should be removed from their parents or parent, of course, the abuses terrible. But the alternative can be just as emotionally distressing for a child. They need to set up more counselling and education services for parents. These parents do not have the emotional stability or education to know how to discipline kids without lashing out at them and callous ways under the current system. The kids are victims either way, damn straight. That's a good point. This woman in this story really needs some counseling this cycle of not being able to properly discipline kids. And then launching them out into adulthood, without the skills to cope is why the cycle keeps continuing. Now. Yokthai comments. Actually, I can understand why they didn't do anything at first. I burn myself a few times as well. When I was a kid and once by my dad by accident, I had my hand near the ashtray and he was trying to put out his cigarette without looking. Some bruises or rather usual when your child? Well, I get that sometimes BRUCE'S are bruises. But when the brought to the attention of teachers or thirties, they should be checked out. What you think leave us comment at podcast at Japan today dot com. Well in national news. We have a story out of Kushima prefecture, which for once doesn't have anything to do with the two thousand eleven earthquake soon NAMI and nuclear disaster while much of the country is just about to spring into cherry blossom season. Other areas are still blanketed with heavy snow and chilly temperatures. Now. I don't know about you. But back in the day. I'm Canadian shoveling snow from the driveways was not a joyous activity. That was something that we had to do. And you know, when my brother and my sisters, and I went out there. Well, that was definitely a chore much like raking leaves or, you know, washing the car, cutting lawn or whatever something you were main to do well in the small town of Nishi is zoo in the snow country of northeastern Fukushima snow shoveling is no longer a chore. Now, it's a fun winter season exercise for young people to burn off calories and gain appreciate. Creation from others while removing snow from Rouf's and streets is commonly regarded as hard labor. Okay. Would call it hard labor. Call them chores. But okay, Mr. editor and organization in the town is encouraging people to see it in a more positive light and enjoy its benefits as a workout. Joe say exercise Joseph Joseph Cise, Josie exercise, something like that. It's a combination of a Japanese word Joe Setsu, which means snow removal and exercise just exercise which kind of doesn't sound like what we're talking about. Takayuki Suzuki forty founded the Japan Joseph exercise association in two thousand fifteen Sawyer I can't say that without laughing. He founded it with local officials and business representatives to promote snow settling as an exercise among young volunteers in the town of Nishii zoo where half of its six thousand residents are aged sixty five or older. So far about four hundred people have taken part in the activity, which is much less than fifty percent. So I think somebody's got to pick up their game there. Anyway, the association advises people that they should take their time to warm up beforehand and cooldown afterward while stressing its benefits such as overcoming an activity to say, the least it also gives effective tips on snow removal without getting injured such as taking down. Snow little by little using shovels and avoiding doing it alone. Because it's so much more fun with others. The association has been expanding its activities and now provides a smartphone app. Which shows how many calories have been burned by users who take part in the exercise, and I am sure that one's gonna fly out of the app store. I mean, I'm downloading it right now. Let's hear from Japan today. Readers to surf well, I have to applaud the idea it's easy to take potshots at it. But if it helps even a little bit. That's a good thing. Snow shoveling is a lot of exercise. But it is also literally backbreaking work. So pre-workout stretching is a good idea. Wonder of this also includes advanced no removal exercise, aka roof, snow removal. Well, you know, I'm no engineer exercise guru, but I think no roof removal is when you just climb up on top of the roof put some of that snow down and hope you don't fall off Kohaku Edis cautions anyone doing it should be warned that if you do use your lower back. It may introduce you to a whole new world pain design a proper roof, and you should only have to climb on it in extreme snow events. We've not had a lot of snow this winter at my place. So I'm a bid out of shoveling practice, and he's probably an engineer to with his complaints about the design of Rouf's. So when you were younger think think back way way back when you were raking, the leaves or shoveling snow or mowing lawns. Did you? Go out. Go from door to door to your neighbors and try to get a little bit of cash from doing that. Kind of stuff, you know, venture out into entrepreneurship, and if so how much money did you make back then I don't just a question that occurs to us. I mean was it a little or a lot to look back on it fondly now. Or was it something that you? Absolutely dreaded to do. Well, we want to hear from you. Let us know let us know let us know at podcast at Japan today dot com. Sorry, I I just had to do that. Well in tech news this week, a Japanese probe, and no we aren't hot talking about proctology here about the size of a large fridge were obviously not talking about proctology. Here was sent to examine an asteroid about three hundred million kilometers from the earth for clues about the original of life and the solar system. Well, it landed successfully last week data from the probe called Haya Busa to showed changes in speed and direction which indicated that he had touched down on the asteroid and was blasting back to its orbiting position. According to officials from the Japan aerospace exploration agency, commonly known as Jaksa the probe fired a bullet into the asteroid to stir up surface matter which would then collect for analysis and send back to earth while actually bring back to earth. The asteroid is thought to contain. Relatively large amounts of organic matter and water from some four point six billion years ago when solar system was born. Now, scientists hope though samples may provide answers to some very fundamental questions about life and the universe, including weather elements from space helped give rise to life here on earth. The high abusive to mission with a price tag of around thirty billion yen, which is about two hundred seventy million US dollars was launched in December twenty fourteen and is scheduled to return to earth with it samples in twenty twenty hopefully just in time for the Olympics. That would be a great splashdown as part of the opening events. Well, congratulations poured in from Japan. Today readers. Crazy Joe calls it wonderful, sending something far far away to something tiny with brilliant delicate precision. And folks, this is all built on science and research that sometimes looks have no practical, applications, the advancement of knowledge. Is just awesome. I hear your enthusiasm. Crazy joe. And I kinda like it brownie ads quite insane that an object can be directed and fully controlled over two hundred eighty million kilometers and then land precisely on a couple of tatami mats and even more. So collect samples and then take the arduous journey back to earth and remain intact. They hope super science, that's right, brownie super science and also let me explain to Tommy mats are small flory mats used here in Japanese houses that are about two and a half to three feet by two and a half to three feet pretty small. I don't know how you can't like that story sending something from right here on earth all the way out to the edge of the solar system and landed on a small asteroid, and then bring it back home safely that is phenomenal. That is of course, unless they're not filming this all on sound stage and took you what do you think? Send us your thoughts. God cast at Japan today dot com. What we finish.

Protein Powder Cons [S2E8]
"Gona any grocery store and you will find protein. Powders premade protein drinks and protein bars. They are everywhere. They're sold gyms most gyms by the way make more money selling protein powder than they do. Selling memberships protein supplements are sold through multilevel marketing schemes. By your friends you would think that. All of the protein products on the shelves are population suffers from mass protein deficiency. But we don't on. Today's show protein supplements. Not only. Are They not needed? But the protein supplement. You take may harm you. My Name is Dr Terry Simpson. And this is culinary medicine where we sort out the crazy from credible about food from source to its effect on your body busting myths and showing evidence where food can be ever see those workout magazine showing muscular people drinking protein shakes and flexing those incredible biceps. They give you the impression that if you drink that shake you could have those six pack abdominal muscles or huge biceps. Oh Yeah but the truth of the matter is adding more protein will not increase your muscle mass or strength. Your body doesn't store protein. So if you eat too much protein your body has several choices of what to do with those extra amino acids. It can break them down further and excrete them in the urine it can convert some to glucose and key tones and some can become fat. Yes fat maybe that low CARB. Diet isn't working. A reason. Protein does not increase muscle bulk. Protein is not a miracle grow for muscles muscles grow because they're used or exercise not because you're consuming extra protein in the nineteen fifties a man by the name of Ervin. Johnson made an egg based protein powder that he sold near the paramount studios in Hollywood. He was a great marketer. And by getting Hollywood folks to buy his drinks. He used the power of celebrity to get the public to purchase his powder. And it worked for a while. You probably haven't heard of him because he was out marketed by one. Joe Whiter Whiter won. The protein powder wars based on the endorsement of a young bodybuilder. That wider had brought to America. His name Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'll be back today. Every grocery store pharmacy and vitamin SHOPPE. You'll see rows of protein bars and protein drinks and powders. Even breakfast cereals are marketing themselves. As having extra protein personal trainers often having no formal training in science or biology but still prescribe unquote supplemental protein without a scientific basis to their clients but there is a very serious and large body of scientific literature looking at the protein requirements of a variety of people from those who have severe illness like burns or trauma to people involved in Athletic Sports. The serious literature doesn't support people. Buying any of those protein supplements the protein that is prescribed for the severely injured in the intensive care unit or burn. It's hospitals are needed and life saving the protein. We give those patients cannot be purchased over the counter. That protein is considered medicine. Not a supplement and medicine is tightly. Regulated and even more tightly manufactured but supplements are not regulated like the medical industry supplements can make vague claims about how their product will affect your health in this case or muscles or weight. Loss Misrepresenting Science and convincing you and yours that this protein supplement will make you strong. Help you lose weight or keep you feeling full in truth. None of those claims are true. As a physician who has weight loss surgery and is certified and culinary medicine the only protein deficiencies and patience. Icy are those who have advanced cancer and those with severe end stage disease like heart disease or infectious diseases like tuberculosis or eight over ninety percent of the protein. Powders the ones that are used to make the supplements come from mainland China even the one's labeled as Vegan organic. And if you think that begin powder is better for you. A recent study showed that many of those protein powders and drinks contain concerning levels of heavy metals such as arsenic cadmium mercury and lent and BPA that ubiquitous chemical found in plastics associated with an increased risk of cancer. These toxic chemicals are stored in your body and accumulate and we'll reach toxic levels with repeated ingestion now the protein powders made from plant protein such as soy peas or hemp are not exempt in fact. They're worse they were found to have higher levels of those toxins and much higher levels than those made from way milk or egg for example. They had twice as much lead. That friend. You're buying the protein powder from the one. Who wants you to sell their product? In their multilevel marketing scheme might be poisoning you. Of course they're slick brochures will say how well they make their product but chances are they simply relabel. A product made in China much protein. Does a person need the world? Health Organization recommends fifty six grams of protein adapted for man and forty eight grams for a woman. Half a chicken breast supplies half the protein you need for a day when tested for protein requirements of strength athletes. Those who are heavy lifters many hours in the gym when they eight hundred twenty six grams of protein a day. They had more than enough to give you an example. That lemon zest Luna Bar. It has nine grams of protein. But you know that. Turkey breast sandwich from subway that has eighteen grams of protein. Your got would prefer that Sandwich. Protein supplements will make you strong. They won't make you thin. They won't give you better help. They may increase your exposure to heavy metals. Which your body will accumulate. Eat real food and if you are wasting muscle see a doctor. It is the sign of an underlying disease. The only ones who benefit from protein supplements are the people selling them on a scale of one to five where five is science and one is a con protein powder. Supplements Bar are one point. Five protein supplements are mostly food con. Thank you for listening to this episode of Culinary Medicine with me Dr Terry Simpson and here comes. The doctor disclaimed.
