"Most inland there. This it's a very you can't just we can't ask that is such a nuance challenging. There is theoretically if you have. An estrogen receptor positive cancer. You know but minimally processed soy is always going to be better for you like tofu and etta mommy and things like that. Then all i definitely would not be doing this protein shakes and bars and all that stuff if you concerned about i just think those highly processed foods aren't good for anybody. The less processed things are the better. But right it's it's you know when they look populations like in asia that eat a lot of soy not processed bars actual soy. They have not been associated with higher incidence of breast cancer. All right so that was a loaded question. It was the end. It's okay. I'm sorry okay so you're looking for. I could sit here and talk to you for hours. And while i'll have you back because like i one hundred more questions for you. But in the meantime how do people find you if they want to know.

"Has a ring with oxygen on it and folded is very unique. Because it's a very small molecular weight compound but it's able to hold a lot of oxygen and also trace minerals and it's able to deliver them directly to the south so it's able because of its size to pass through the cell membrane and basically microsd yoursel with all the important minerals and electrolytes that your mitochondria and everything else needs to function optimally. So this is truly it's from the from the is from its produced over thousands of years from microbial degradation of organic matter. That's a really big way of saying you know. Bugs are digesting plants. Dead plants essentially But it's like it to me. What's so interesting about it. Is it really can help compensate for the deterioration in soil quality that we've seen in this country so having something like that is so nutrient dense. It's a very because it holds so much oxygen to it's very very powerful antioxidant and it's also a strong key later so it can actually pull toxins out of the cell so you know vote antioxidant so help the cell with all the oxidative stress and that it's under but also removing some of the toxic byproducts of metabolism and different things so it has a really unique one two punch to it plus research has shown that it actually helps support the flora. And your microbiomes. Really hot right now. Every polyphenol can actually function as a pre biotic. And i talked about this in. My book is live long that all spices and herbs are considered prebiotic. Prebiotics are actually even more important than probiotics in terms. Because what people don't understand is that probiotics don't actually colonize your digestive system. They actually passed through and caused changes to the genetics of the bacteria in your gut. So they're not actually people think. Oh i'm taking this probiotic and it's like i don't know what they think but it's not actually not actually sorry siri. It's not actually a hearing to your got. While inducing changes in the flora that already exist in your and prebiotics do. Even more effectively would be a prebiotics. Give us an exhaust most foods with fiber not. Not all fibers are prebiotics but all products are considered name. Some of the state names. I mean you know. I mean the big ones are like they always talk about jerusalem. Artichoke is being one of the most powerful sources. I don't even know what that. I love the jerusalem. I do all my god. They're artichoke hearts malicious. Yeah anything i mean. There's any component of all the polyphenyls. I mean beans. Anything with fiber in it is probably going to have some degree of biotic fiber okay and then the watching trae biotic so also but isn't probiotic very specific to who you are like everyone's taking these pro by probiotics depend on what kind of bacteria or good bacteria bad bacteria have in your body so so there's two answers to that question. Number one is the probe. There is something called strain specificity to probiotics so not all probiotic strains do the same thing now and so they function like there are some that support digestive health. There's some that support immune function. There's some that support vaginal house. There are some that support. That are good for antibiotic associated. Diarrhea see dealer something like that. So first of all. there's strain specificity. So you can't just oh just taking a probiotic and it's going to be fine. You have to know what you're taking it if you're not just if you're taking it for something specific The second thing is yes. We have a tremendous amount of and this is the second part of precision nutrition. That i personally am not as focused on. Because i find that genetics more exciting and interesting. But there's a lot of prolific researchers in the united states where there's a tremendous amount of diversity in the got and a from one person to another based on environments based on genetics based on exposures based on illnesses. You can have changes in your microbial. Kind of the overriding term. So it's a complicated area but it is very individualized. You can be pretty certain that you know if you're eating a balanced diet rich in fiber any fiber foods so nuts and seeds and fruits and vegetables. I don't think unlike. I i do disagree with a lot of dieticians and doctors. I don't think you have to have whole grains to be healthy. I think there's a lot of things that whole grains are associated with. But i'm not convinced that just having nuts and seeds and vegetables and fruit can't be equally effective in terms of the what people are tribute benefits of whole grain. So i'm a little country and in that way because the traditional dietitians are like a whole grains are a part of any diet. I don't need a lotta brains. I beans when i can for fiber sweet potatoes nuts and seeds. i don't i. Don't i feel like i gained weight very easily when i eat too many grains whether their whole rather just nuts though i i gain weight very easily from eating too many grains but i also gain weight from nuts. Because how do you eat like a little palm. Yeah to i. Did you know fortunate now. Now now when you hear this something i by the hundred gallery. I know i have those two and then at eight seven packs do so. Here's what i tell patients and my plastic food models. Because i literally show patients in the office which you have to understand about nuts is is a concept called energy density okay so calorie density so nuts are a very energy dense food because they have no water whatsoever. So what i tell. My patients is never eaten. Nuts alone always combine them with the high volume food. A water based food or fiber based food or better yet both so that you get the volume so sit tidier. Fullness is based on two will multiple different things but actual physical distension of the stomach is one of them. So if you i always tell people this is one of the fundamental things that i do for nutrition. Weight loss is helping people with the energy density of their diet and always combining so. I would never have you eat nuts alone. I eat nuts an apple or nuts and carrots or nuts and yogurt or nuts. Never nuts alone. Because it's too calorie. Dense is not make you full enough fast enough to account for the calories. That's well thank you for saying that because that's my problem so it was like oh eat nuts eaten eat. Don't eat so much fruit. So that's what happened. I bought a bunch of these boxes of these hundred calorie bags and the entire box. Which was i. Think ten thousand calories just a in maybe three and a half minutes because it's fast over three and a half minutes well that's a whole nother conversation eating. There's a whole other my past. But i mean the thing about that is they're delicious and they're very salty so or even need to raleigh elite that enough ask but they're like chips to me. Yeah because it's like the crunchiness now do you still. This has been of course talked about in your book also everywhere almonds almonds and walnuts. Is there any other nuts or seed. That just is equally or better. I was like walnuts. I don't like the flavor i mean. They say there are a rich source. Omega three fatty foods but there are different type of three fatty acid than you get from fish so i don't think you need walnuts. Pistachios are incredible. There's a lot of good research and if you think about health think about color so the green is tasha. It tells you that that has a different type of antioxidant. There's been some great research done on pistachios. Chia seeds trump. All of them. If there's the but not for taste. I put them in yogurt bay with them. I put them in pancakes for my kids. They are high in protein. And your kids eat those tricks and they figure it out pretty quick. What do you mean how they figure out. A flexi mike. Yes they look. And you can note telling you i kid you not. I would try to make i make the shakes make pancakes and they tried to trick them with putting a flaxseed or the and.

It's it's amazing and it's also platt based so there's no excuses it's never too late or too early to start taking e we go to life dot com slash habits and use code habits to save thirty percent off your first purchase take advantage of this limited time offer today. That's e we life dot com. I w i l i s e dot com slash habits code habits for thirty percent off your first purchase. These statements have not been evaluated. By the food and drug administration. This product is not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease. Is it possible like you know how you when you're working out or you can you can plateau because you're doing the same exercises over and over and you're right it doesn't change can you also food plateau like if you're eating the same foods day in day out without any variety. Does your body get acclimated to that and therefore not really kind of shift or change. Well so i'm not. There's the short answer is first all you should have variety just to have a balanced nutritious depends on what you're eating healthy right yet. You know a couple of other doctors were. I think we're talking about this because if you eat something too much you end up having it. You're not you become allergic but you can. Your body can become. What does the word your doctor. I i. i'm not sure that that's actually been established scientific. So that's not. I mean that that happens in the same thing or they if you're trying to lose weight and you're doing that yes i do. Believe the body can become acclimated but and the thing that we ordered not. Just wait and i'm talking. They can plateau in the weight. But in general like you bought it becomes so acclimated to the same food. You're not giving it any variety. Is there any kind of downfall for that. Not that i'm aware of medically and frankly. Most people eat a pretty narrow range of foods at the end of the day. I know for me. I have almonds every day. I fame or whatever mc protein bar. Every morning for breakfast i have. I have a very narrow and and you know what honestly though what the research does show is. That having less choices is better. Because i read a study once you have over you make over two hundred food and beverage related decisions every single day if you're somebody that doesn't know a lot about or struggles with their weight. What are the odds that you're going to make the right decision over two hundred times you even people don't know as much as i do about. I've been doing this for twenty years. And i still make the best decisions i make. I bring up this point. Because i've been eating the same breakfast every single day for probably like twenty years and people give me a heart dot everyone but people give me a hard time about it. Because i'm so regimented great. I'm glad to hear it. Because i just don't want to think about it right. It literally not think about what a meeting for breakfast. Wanna have the same thing where my brain can focus on other things and not make those mistakes. I don't want like veer to to a pancake. Feel i know. I'm gonna feel i know. I know exactly how my blood sugar energy levels respond. If i go you know. It's amazing to me if i go out for brunch or something like that and change things up in the morning. It screws up my entire percent either. Same way it in you know so no. There is no scientific reason why your body would adapt or become allergic. It's the food is broken down into basic neutral. I'll tell you because. I used to love green beans and eat them all the time and then like i have like i do have like. Xm a- and so. I went to see an allergy specialist. And he said that now. This was years ago that maybe you had like wasn't allergic to it. Like you know when you take those allergy tests and your intolerance. That's the word i was looking for. Thank you that. Maybe it was. Because i was eating so many green beans and so many of this that my body is become intolerant. So that's why. I was kind of like i don't think so but cannot that. That's why that whole conversation. Angels in food tolerance based on and this is an area of medicine that is more considered integrative you could have for example if you have inflammation that causes you know and i don't like to use the term leaky gut but it's the easiest way of explaining it because it's not really as you know it's a hot topic too hot topic but so if you think about your gut that one of the things the role is is kind of like a net and it needs to keep all the bad things out right so inflammation can help kind of loosen the natter or make an excuse so that You know different food components could potentially be absorbed in trigger some sort of reaction. Like you're in. It can manifest in the skin could memphis and the god it can manifest so but but with green me. I mean i would think of that more with like proteins. What is actually the protein in grains exactly. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Good when everything been things. The more i have studied nutrition over the past twenty two years the more i know the more i realize we don't know so you know i thought i knew everything. Fifteen years ago. now. I never say never. Could it be true. Absolutely it could be true. Is there any evidence that i know of scientifically now. Well thank you but the problem is too much information. I mean knowledge is power. I got it but too much. Information becomes extremely confusing. So then let's start with the trends of issuance conflicting. And that's what a lot of it is. If you're following a social media influence or this person that person pop you know you you have to be cognizant of who your sources are right and to stay with those because to appoint when we and i'm a big believer in this you know diet is going to work if you cut a pepper. You pick a few things from this diet. You pick a few things from that diet and you combine them. You combine them all together. Nothing's going to work. But on that point would you believe what do you think about intermittent fasting about ketogenic diets. Like what is your take on on those forms of i. Actually the the obesity meeting last year did an entire symposium on intermittent fasting and. They presented all the latest data. And i think. I've been interviewed on this a lot. I think. Intermittent fasting is legit. I think it is you know. First of all it's been done for thousands of years and in places all over the world but from a health standpoint so particularly for people who are pre diabetic it may have some unique benefits. The problem with intermittent fasting is that to do it correctly. The eating window needs to be ten to six. It know if you're doing the sixteen eight fasting regiment where you eat for eight hours and faster sixteen and there was actually a study presented at obesity. Week that if you move that window to twelve to eight instead and you eat later that actually it's worse for you. So you know one of the things that here's here's a sign for somebody who is not a nutrition expert. Really if they say calories in calories out and it's just that simple of an equation then they don't actually know the latest science because we know that calories later in the evening are actually metabolize differently. They have a different impact on your metabolism. So they count more so you know. It's as simple as calories in but so the eating window for intermittent fasting the correct one that all research has been done showing the beneficial effects Particularly with prediabetes heart disease is ten. Am to six pm. So i think that's a viable approach. It's just hard for people not to eat. After i mean people are bored. They're letting down the relaxing for the day so my patients that are really trying to do that. They can have tea at night. This is where i bring in kind of the flavored. Teas that herbals. That's not going to keep them awake. The key genyk diet. I'm actually very good friends with one of the main guys Stephen finney. i've known for twenty years. He and dr. Jeff are like the big kito guys. They've been doing this for over twenty years. Because i met him in a previous life when i was with a startup doing breath diagnostics. And we were looking at looking at key. Towns in the breath through infrared spectrometer. I'm doing that right now. The new company. Yeah have you thought of this thing you breathe into it and it tells you you're matab. Let's different that's different. And i have one of those machines. My office by the way that measures resting metabolic rate through yes. Ceo two anyways. So how'd you like that machine. Yeah i think it's interesting. You have to do it correctly. I don't know which hand-held you're doing is probably not as accurate but But it's still randomly afterwards so i'll report back on that one. I kind become more of even on so with the keita. Genyk diet listen there is. There's no question that it's effective for weight loss there. There's really no question about it. My issue is a. I don't think it's livable long-term and there's healthier ways of doing it. And i also have very very significant concerns about the long term impact twenty years of having so much high fat red meat on the incidents of colon cancer. Because that's something that we know. I mean this pretty clear. Lack of fiber and excess red meat particularly process red meat but can really lead to call and cancer. So i have. And i'm not convinced yet that it's not deleterious to the heart right it just an now. If you lose weight the benefits of weight loss in terms of cholesterol. It may be a wash but just there are a. It's an interesting approach. I think you can do a healthier ketogenic diet more. I mean of integrating more things like avocado and olive oil. And that's great. But i do have concerns about having a lot of high-fat animal protein over a twenty year duration. And if they tell me if kito experts say well how can you back that up. I can't because guess what twenty year cancer nutrition studies are almost impossible to do so. I will never be able to tell you for sure because how do you. How do you follow what somebody eads over twenty years. I can't even keep track for a week. I forget what i ate yesterday. So these that's one of the challenges with nutrition research. So you know. I think if you want to use it as a kick start to a diet plan if you wanna do you know. I think that can work. I like to see a healthier kito possible but in terms of a longterm diet for health. It's not at the top of my list. Would be the understatement. How bill carb cycling right so just of kinda. Mix up your your body's normally accustomed to so you eat whatever where you're doing and then one day a week you're really doing like high carb. I actually really liked that concept. I do and that's something that i do find that patients in terms of weight loss. They do if they're having the same macro nutrient ratio every single day. You know becomes acclimated to some extent. But it's also i think it just it also helps with compliance because did makes things more interesting. You can change things. I'm so against. Psychologically if i know that on saturday i'm going to have whatever sweet potato fries. My favorite car. i don't. i'm not a bread person or pasta. Sweet potato fries. Forget about it. So you know but if i mentally know that i'm gonna have that you don't have the deprivation mentality and feel like you and there was actually a really successful book as promoting other people's books smoothest dietitian wrote a book called the fast metabolism diet where she changed which she did. I mean she position at differently but basically she was changing up the macro every day. So one day you would do no car about my protein. One day ms moore mediterranean which is more balanced and. I think it's very. It's very very common fitness space. I mean we people. Do we talk with us all the time that book. There's a lot of people who do that because it does it. Just shocks your system from doing the same thing over and over again. Just tell when you work out. You don't want to do the same thing. Over and over gated body becomes acclimated. I think that has definitely the macro has more legs than the actual foods causing some like. Give me an allergy to green. Means doesn't make sense to me but you know we're we're not cars you can't put in the same amount of gas than ninety-three whatever gas and go the same distance single day. So you know. Having and i do feel like the human body is not designed to lose weight. We are evolutionary created to hold onto. Wait so you do have to kind of trick your body a little bit because it especially for women especially for women of childbearing age because our genetic everything is designed for us to hold fat so we can carry a baby during the famine like there's ever going to be a famine again but in some hard right there are but so it's not an evolutionary favorable trait to be naturally skinny when it comes to genetic so i think tricking your body. I love. I love the idea of of carb cycling. You know changing things up and doing different things on different days than i also talked to patients a lot about fuelling. Your workouts like people forget. That food is fuels. So how am. I going to fuel your body to help you. Perform best and optimize the body composition changes from whatever workout. You do and so that. I think that's a really great point that people can and even if you don't hire somebody a professional play around with it and but carbs fuel so if you're doing the long cardio you're doing a spinning class. You need carbs. You protect your muscle to be utilized as a fuel source unless you're fully carbon adapted because you're kito and that's different right flexible with the other metabolic. Yeah metabolic flexibility. Is that big. A new marker that are healthier you know. Don't have insulin resistance which is tied to inflammation which can be reused by spices. We're tying back exactly all these. The gas volvo. Exactly well actually. What do you know about solvit so we both are fans of this water the okay which is allied health benefits. It has the gasset. You're the doctor. Are those benefits. Yeah folded acid is before. I was turned onto this brand. I had never heard of it to be quite honest with you. And i have heard of most things nutrition but i immediately called my colleague. Who's the head of human nutrition at ucla. And i you know. She's an md ph so she's got an extra degree on me. So i defer to her but and she you know she said of course. I know fava gasset. It's been used in traditional chinese medicine for thousands of years. So then i started looking into it and and what the company even in realized is that full of acid is actually ah polyphenyls and there are thousands of papers on the bench and it just means the biochemical structure so it.

"So sad. They eat emotional eating. They eat to relieve stress. They were you know. There's people in this country have a very unhealthy relationship with food. So you know. I think you one thing i don't think is that you can just biohacking yourself. I know you have a lot of those types of people on the show. But i really believe that you. There's a huge amount of data that needs to be considered an indoor for an individual level. So somebody can't just go do the test on themselves and try to figure out what's going to work for them. They really have to work with somebody. Who can factor in all the variables and because genetics is hard because just because you have a genetic variant doesn't mean you have the condition. There's a component of genetics called penetration. You know the penetration of genes. How clinically relevant. They really aren't and so we're not there yet in knowing everything about it so but the company that i work with you could definitely there actually canadian company neutrino next but you know finding a qualified healthcare practitioner to help you navigate that but there is the specialty of obesity medicine for people. That are really struggling. You know it may be something. I a lot of my patients who are pre diabetic or who have hashimoto's disease autoimmune diseases.

And i still make the best decisions i make. I bring up this point. Because i've been eating the same breakfast every single day for probably like twenty years and people give me a heart dot everyone but people give me a hard time about it. Because i'm so regimented great. I'm glad to hear it. Because i just don't want to think about it right. It literally not think about what a meeting for breakfast. Wanna have the same thing where my brain can focus on other things and not make those mistakes. I don't want like veer to to a pancake. Feel i know. I'm gonna feel i know. I know exactly how my blood sugar energy levels respond. If i go you know. It's amazing to me if i go out for brunch or something like that and change things up in the morning. It screws up my entire percent either. Same way it in you.

"And that's looking at the getting back to how the subconscious and conscious works getting through. That gatekeeper of everybody says thank you or sincerely or whatnot zone. Mind with me thoughtful. And you potentially noticed that it's capital b. e. and then all lower case for thoughtful and so the b. e. is behavioral economics. It's a little hint at wasn't there. And then the thoughtfulness and same with the logo. It's not very obvious that the smoke on the rocket is a brain at first. You know it's like these little easter egg moments where you can then see and have that thought essentially if like wow if she put this much thought into that there must be more here and people are kind of looking for that just as you go. And i'm all about creating curiosity and asking good questions and not just accepting what's there and so it all really hints back at that which is a big theme of the brand and the show in the work that i do. Yeah and it's like the arrow in the fedex logo once you see it you'll never unsee it right. Yes absolutely so. The podcast is the brainy business. Podcast right correct. Yes so for those who want to listen to that like you said. It's really an extension of the kinds of things we're talking about today and the kinds of things it'll be in your book but You have you know fascinating guests where you get to go in all kinds of direction. So i certainly recommend that people seek out brainy business podcast What's your website for people who want to check out and learn more about you. The website is the brain business dot com. And the podcast is there. You can also find it on all the Wherever you listen to podcasts and The book is there on the website and everything and it's a mix of For the podcast. He said there's interviews but also a lot of those solo episodes. It was just me talking for the first eighty episodes of the show and explaining concepts and things so Yeah and then. You can find me on all the socials as the brady biz. The is e of one thing. I'm about then since you did somebody podcast episodes where it was. Just you talking and then of course you do a lot of interviews now. I'm sure you do a little bit of both. What are you find kind of performance. Wise what do you find that your audience is most interested in and do they gravitate toward kind of the subject matter expertise. You talking on something or do they gravitate more toward interviews or it. Does it really just kind of depend. It can depend their some interviews that do really well dan rallies was one that had some you know capturing attention on their In a couple of weeks stephen. Mr covey's going to be a guest. And i think that where there's a big name that people are familiar with can make a difference because a lot of the listenership there so there are more episodes that are just me and people are coming there to hear the way that i talk about a concept i think that those solo episodes tend to do well and i want to learn about game theory. So i'm just gonna listen to that one episode But the ones that actually do. The best are the these company analysis at the sewed. So i have an episode right talk about starbucks. The paper economics of starbucks of costco of disney of peleton. Nj saying you know. These are what i see when i look at the brand things that make them successful..

"Another thing i'm really curious about with regards to you is your really just the way you've put your whole brand together. You are bold and colorful and fun and energetic and those are not adjectives that are often tied to behavioral science behavioral economics social psychology heart of it is. I'm sure your natural personality coming out. But how much have you deliberately crafted your brand to. Maybe be the antithesis of what the common stigma might be in the field that you work. I appreciate you noting it and Being able to tell that there's some authenticity to it versus kind of thing myself feels very authentic so There were some very intentional things. So like my brand colors. The brainy business purple and i have a purple brain. I can see him. He's a character for me. He's got glasses on over here in my office But very much when i was picking out the My logo and the show. Art for the podcast. So it's it's very cartoon looking rocket and then the Like smoke underneath is shaped like a brain. And that's got this kind of squishy font for the brady business where it looks like folds in the brain things like that. I wanted to be because most people that i'm looking to be targeting that it's not academia that i know i want people to know it doesn't look or sound boring like a lecture that you don't want to listen to you. You're looking for podcast that if you search behavioral economics and then you see this fun looking logo you think. That sounds interesting right. I'm gonna go check that out and if the things that it's next to our very rigid and and stodgy that it helps to stand out again. That's priming people for what to expect. When they click on end that i click of saying. I'm going to try this. One is the most important thing. Because i know where the show. It's very much like you hearing me talking now. This is it. This is what you get from the show and like clients. When i work with them. I mean very much conversational space and so then you start to listen and see that. They're spun stories and You can laugh along with whatever's happening then you're going to want to stay. So there is a lot of thoughtfulness that goes into it and actually end every episode and my email signature is to be thoughtful. Which is also very intentional but You know putting in that extra little bit of time to think about something can make a really big impact for businesses and brands. And just very that we do. Yeah well and it's a powder interrupt to. I've i noticed that signature on your email and it made me stop for a minute. Now you know. I looked at analytically. I found a curious which for me is just where my brain goes like. Oh that's interesting. I know that's deliberate. And then i started thinking what impact is going to have on other people when they see it. But it's also anything that can interrupt that pattern of what people are doing kind of on autopilot all day long right right well..

"Hey we found this. Isn't that cool. We found this that cool. Like isn't this amazing. But no here's how you would use that yourself. And so that's what my podcast does. And then translating that into the book it starts by talking about how the brain works at separated into four parts. So how the brain works. Some things that you wanna know as we move forward mar two introduces sixteen concepts that i think are some of the most important ones for businesses in general able to us and each one has its own chapter and say so in the chapter about framing you learn about it how it works some great examples and then an appliance section. So you can look at using it and then it will say when you get to part three like you're going to see this again. Framing comes up in chapter twenty two twenty three twenty five whatever so then when you read in the how to start combining these concepts together and actually using them in part three in your own experiments. You'll read a story about something that some practitioners have done or examples of people using behavioral economics in their businesses. And then they'll say concepts you saw here include framing priming anchoring and these are their chapters. So it's kind of like a reference book and very much intended that you can really use it and it's also going to be having an extra pdf workbook with more ways to apply it. That couldn't fit in there. That will be available in free on my website. Clearly you've put a lot of thought into the design of it so many most books really you know you read them from start to finish and then they do sit on a shelf because there's really no practical way to go back and use it and the fact that you're not only referring forward as people are reading but then you're summarizing and taking them back when you go through examples it sounds like the kind of fame it can just live and breathe on their desk in when you're really trying to solve a sticky problem..

"It is a great quote from failure in sunshine is saying so choosing where you place putting carrots. eye level is a nudge. Banning junk food is not when you make it. That people don't have a choice and they aren't able to get something that they would want otherwise. That is no longer a nudge that things the difference and the other piece of nudging. That's very important is what's called choice architecture and so it's also very very important to note even if you don't think about it in advance the way you are presenting information to people you are always a choice architect whether you think about it or not and so materially you are just inadvertently nudging people toward a choice. That's not good for you. Your business or for them in the long run because you didn't think about it whereas if you take the time to know that you know this option for investing in retirement is going to be the best choice and so i'm going to make it look immunise show that it can be the best choice for people and you have some intention. It can really help everyone. And that's the way that. I like to approach it with that era of like. Let's all do good in the positive intent right. Yeah do no evil one of my recent guests. Baron has a very simple line. I don't think it's his original quote but it always resonates with me where he always says. Don't make people wrong right. Nobody wants to be wrong. So when you're creating these these nudges it's not about making them wrong and trying to get them to do the right thing because nobody wants to be ranked wrong. I think that's a pitfall that the also have to be really careful that right absolutely. The brain is very biased toward thinking. It's smarter better faster than everyone else. Including who we were five minutes ago and nipple will vary much rebel against being told that they are bad or wrong or dumb in the past. Mrs..

"They'll pick one desert over the other. It's that they'll be just as happy with carrots if they're nudged in that way by making that what's what's most available to them right well and if you think about anyone who ever has had a picky eater in the world you know so where you make it so the meal looks like a face or something fun. They're more likely to want to eat it. That's a framing aspect in the way that you presented makes it look more gluing exciting To step into another side of this my four year old. She hates the idea of having her hair. Put up and when you start to ask she's no. I don't want that like do you want your hair. No and then i say. Do you want an elsa braid as the next statement says. Oh yeah right. I don't want my hair up. But i totally wanted alphabrain. Let's do it right. So she frame makes a big difference. And if i can point out on the cereal as you were saying and i talk about this in my book is that the placement matters but retailers can actually. They'll often pay more for lower shelf placement for those sugary cereals. That are targeted toward children. And if you look the way that the characters their eyes are looking is very specific so on a cereal that has some sort of a Somebody on the box like the wheaties box right. Why and more likely you have that character. That person is working straight on because it's targeted at the adults and it's going to be higher up. The cartoon mascots are often looking down because they're trying to make eye contact with children. And when you have that connection personal association with the brand it increases the trust factor and the likelihood that people are gonna buy and everything that we're talking about here of course. It's first and foremost in the context of business. That's the audience that you generally speak to. And that's listening but in my own life and and in talking with people like you..

"I know how to do this can do that can do that. And then when there's something weird it'll let your conscious brain step up and do something. So that is very important to say because the subconscious is making these decisions based on those rules of thumb the way that things impact the subconscious can impact a choice that it is going to make and a great study that was done on this is looking at. They had people in a room. They were working together on a cooperative task. In half of the cases there was a briefcase in sight and the other half. There was a backpack that was insight and nobody noticed it. As is the way that these typically work on a conscious level at uneven trigger anything but those in the briefcase room where much more likely to be combative And to be retaining and kind of aggressive with the team members whereas those in the backpack room were more likely to be cooperative and work better together. And you just think about. The associations are Brains have with those sorts of concepts people who held an iced coffee versus a hot coffee rated people that they talk to or learned about later as being more cold and difficult just really weird literal associations that we don't think should happen and so that is cramming In in context. If you think about the word choice you have a few. Were doing a survey. Let's say or the way you phrase the question if you put out an image in an ad that has that iced coffee in it just happens to be holding a cold drink but you're not thinking about what it's doing to prime that experience someone is having it can really have a big impact without realizing it and can shift everything. So that's priming. That's essentially how that works together when you're asking about is nudges. And this is based on some really foundational research in the field of behavioral science and behavioral economics. Which was done by richard and son stein and looking at how you encourage someone to make a choice..

That sounds really curious right so it was looking at getting people to save more like i said and done in africa and they were looking at all. These different nudges to help people to save which included You'd get a text as if it was from one of your children or something that said thanks so much for caring enough about my future to save mom and they also had These other behavioral nudges within may tested. I think twelve different things including matching funds. So if you save ten whatever currency will give you more and they threw in this extra thing of a gold coin that had numbers around the edge. Villas for twenty four weeks and so for each week that you save you just scratch the edge of the coin To show that you did it gets a little game occasion in there and things like that And what they found is the gold coin outperformed every intervention they did including and it did better on its own than even when it had matching funds associated with it which is really fascinating and so what. I ended up doing for my research. Experiment was with a financial institution In oregon and we sent out refrigerator magnets that had the scratch. If you saved pentag- old stuff around the edge that you could say yes. I united states this week. It's like yeah you but you also know you write your goal on it but it's priming new when you're walking through the kitchen and you think. Oh yeah. i want to save money. Oh yeah i have this goal. It's constantly reminding you of that intention. And so we found with those who had the magnet saved more and they had better reviews back financial issues..

Natasha Romanoff gets the origin story she deserves in Black Widow trailer
"This time will move who move back to the Marvel Marvel universe because so many things happened in the marvel universe. You know it's just constant news coming out of there and this is that there is a first trailer for black widow. The Solo Film. I saw on facebook today. One of my friends posted a reference to this and I think his comment was about damn time so at least one person who is excited for this. Let's see so Natasha. Romanoff off black widow is getting her own. Solo movie. Black widow is set after the events of captain. America's civil war just to put it in the timeline for for marvel movies stories etc.. It's a time when all where all the vendors had to do some self reflection on what being a superhero really meant meant and one that put a Natasha Romanoff into a crisis of self reflection as Scarlett Johansson explained in an interview with Vanity Fair. Are we just wrapped black widow like two weeks ago or something like that. So it's very fresh in my mind and I don't have the total perspective on it yet. It's a film film about self forgiveness and it's a film about family. I think in life we sort of come of age many times. And you have these kind of moments where you're in a transitional phase and then you move sort of beyond it and I think in the black widow standalone film. I think the character is at when we find her a moment of real crisis and throughout the film by facing herself a lot of ways and a lot of things that make her her she actually kind of comes through that crisis on the other side and we start to be able to reset set where she's a more grounded self possessed person so that's her journey. Well I hope anyway again. That was a quote from a Scarlett Johansson in an interview with Vanity Fair hints of that journey are seen in the trailer on Natasha Tells Yelena below who is played by Flori- pugh. We have unfinished business. We have to go back to where it all started and for black widow part of going back to back as putting together a team that not only consists of Yelena but Melina Astakhov played by Rachel Vice and Alexei Shostakovich Known as the Red Guardian David played by David Harbored Harbor. Excuse me and the trailer also gives us our first look at the film's Big Bad than Torius taskmaster and So there is that first glimpse an black widow will be opening. May I twenty twenty so you do have a few more months to wait although twenty twenty is right around the corner. It's crazy. How fast this year went by just moosh? I'm pretty sure that New Year's was like a week ago. Last New Year's it just feels like it was crazy fast. Are you excited for the new. Black widow. STANDALONE on film. Are you intrigued to find out. What Natasha's journey is going to look like and how this team is going to interact And where this is going to take black widow in her character arc. Although you're kind of backtracking in time which can be a you know you gotta got to keep it all straight in your head. So hopefully you're you're better at that at that than I am. I said before I definitely need a marvel universe for dummies thing. We need a very detailed synopsis of everything to Keep It all straight
