He enjoys working out and bodybuilding, so he knows first-hand how effective this therapy can be.

Drew and Robb discuss medical technologies, why one diet doesn’t fit all and parenting during the nutritional crisis in the U.S.

John found getting into the ‘Meat Snack’ industry was fairly simple but making real food to nourish people was a bit more challenging. It was a challenge he was willing to accept. When John realized government nutrition labels were a farce, he was determined to get people and food manufacturers involved in DNX’s Declaration of Transparency to educate people of a product's true ingredients, without being deceived by jargon and workarounds.

Nov 30, 2016 01:05:45

Description:

What do you do if you want to find out if a food is healthy? If you are like most Americans, you read the label or do a google search to see what the ingredients are.

This mind blowing podcast comes on the heels of the release of Jeff’s new book, The Big Fat Food Fraud: Confessions of a Health-Food Hustler. In it, he shares an insider's account of the lies and deceptions which exist in the food industry, from bribes to local health inspectors, manipulated food labels, fitness industry influencers who are targeted and even having the VP of Monsanto running the FDA. Knowledge is power. Listening to this episode can help you to take your power back and take control of your health without manipulation.

Take a nice long and deep breath before listening to today’s episode. No, really. Do it! There...isn’t that better?

EP046: Lynn's Daily Routine

Jul 13, 2016 37:06

Description:

This week’s episode focuses on Lynn’s daily routine. It’s not female specific information and in many ways, Lynn’s routine matches pretty closely with Drew’s routine, which he shared last week. Lynn realizes there is so much more to health care than just a number on a scale. While she gets her blood tests done to ensure she’s feeding her body in the way it needs to be fed, she uses her intuition to tell her which foods and exercise she needs daily. And to keep stress from bringing her down, she meditates, reads, journals and laughs each and every day. 

 

Key Takeaways:

[5:32] Habit stacking helps to form Lynn’s daily routine.

[7:50] Lynn reviews her gratitude list and repeats positive affirmations before she gets out of bed every morning. 

[13:17] Laughter is medicine and it changed Lynn’s life.

[14:30] Meditation helps Lynn to focus inward, where true change starts.

[20:14] What do intuitive eating and intuitive exercise mean?

[23:03] Complex carbohydrates like potatoes digest slower than simple carbs like doughnuts.

[26:14] You don’t have to have a structured workout to have a healthy body.

[27:57] Lynn uses reading and journaling as her self-care practice before bed every night.

[31:56] Which supplements does Lynn consume every day?

Jun 14, 2016 48:45

Description:

Drew and Lynn are sharing the story of their lives, their relationship and their divorce in today’s episode. Their wish is that the information helps others make it through the hard decisions they may be facing based on what they have learned along the journey of their marriage. This very open and vulnerable exchange focuses on three important points of encouragement. One is having a long-term vision for your life.

[8:20] Hanging on to a marriage for reasons of pride is just prolonging an unhappy situation.

[11:14] “The decision wasn’t made lightly. We were in hardcore counseling for five years before our divorce.”

[24:56] The 3 things that helped Drew & Lynn maintain a long-term relationship after a divorce.

EP038: It’s Not About the Crunches

May 17, 2016 55:44

Description:

Jason MacKenzie has overcome a hardship that most of us would think impossible to overcome. His human reaction to a devastating event left him lost in a haze of guilt, shame and alcoholism. He used physical fitness as a type of retribution for his dirty deeds and his wife’s suicide as the rationale for letting himself fall apart. It wasn’t until he embraced his vulnerable side that he was able to break free of his addiction and start his spiritual journey. His upcoming world-changing book is for Dads who need to cultivate vulnerability in their lives.

 

Key Takeaways:

[7:19] Jason dealt with the inconsolable mental anguish which was his late wife’s bipolar disorder.

[14:50] Sharing stories about bipolar disorder encourages other people to share their stories, helping to lift their burden.

[18:45] Imagine telling two little girls their mommy went to heaven after their Mommy committed suicide.

[24:39] People will rationalize their drinking problem to themselves and those who love them until the breaking point occurs.

[31:55] Two views of a disorder - How the spouse of an affected person copes and how a person who is struggling copes.

[37:19] Physical fitness was Jason’s anchor during tumultuous times and mental fitness is what got him ripped.

[42:13] It’s not about crunches. It’s about being worthy of being better.

[47:18] Contact information and what to expect from Jason’s book.

EP035: A Positive Body Image Allows Your Inner Beauty to Shine Through

Apr 26, 2016 01:00:07

Description:

Maddy Moon is a 24-year-old female with strong convictions about sharing her message with the world. As a high school student, Maddy was introduced to food documentaries which changed her way of eating. She adopted vegetarianism and rapidly dropped weight. And even though she didn’t need to lose the weight, people started praising her for her new look. She became obsessed with the attention she was getting and decided to work with a trainer to prepare her for a physique competition. She has since realized her value is more than how she looks and she wants to make sure women have the tools to become body positive. She has written two books and her website has become a resource for those who would like to learn from her experiences.

 

Key Takeaways:

[7:54] Maddy shares the beginning of her body obsession and how her eating habits were getting her noticed.

[13:55] Labels are more powerful than we think they are. They can make us a prisoner.

[21:48] Maddy lost herself and her health while preparing for her first physique competition.

EP034: How to Use Posturology and Natural Foods to Train High-Level Athletes

Apr 20, 2016 53:38

Description:

As a former professional ice hockey player and wrestler, Paul Gagné has always had an interest in using the body’s natural systems to obtain peak performance. He currently trains high-level athletes using Posturology, Sports Physiology, and Strength Conditioning along with a Japanese style nutrition and diet regiment. He advises to only take supplements that activate the body’s natural systems, but only if you really need to.

 

Key Takeaways:

[5:24] What exactly is Posturology and what does it have to do with our feet?

[14:39] Eye muscles are an important part of posture. Hand, eye coordination can be stunted by the white light from screens and the proximity of electronic devices.

[20:18] How has Paul’s nutritional philosophy changed over the years due to changes in scientific information?

[28:44] What is the difference in the proper diet of a high-end athlete vs. the average Joe?

[35:08] We should wait for our bodies to tell us when we need food before eating. Most people eat before their bodies have finished processing food.

[38:09] A good supplement activates our body's natural energy system.

[40:59] Bone broth is made from organic bones and it is eaten to reduce inflammation.

[43:53] Protein powders and supplements are overused, wasteful products.
