Listener Questions:

 

04:23 - Q: A couple of my friends have been talking about trying the “Amazing Gallbladder and Liver Flush” and I wanted to see if you were familiar with this, and if it was something that you recommend?

  • Brandy in New Hampshire

 

07:00 - Q: I really enjoyed your podcast with Dr Gittleman and am so excited she is coming back on the show! On the last episode, she talked about not being a big fan of kombucha, but didn’t elaborate too much. I was thrown off by this because kombucha seems to be all the rage in my healthy circles. Could you talk some more about pros and cons of kombucha, and what I should be looking out for?

  • Lauren in North Carolina

 

13:20 - Q: With it being the New Year, a lot of my friends are talking about resolutions, and some of them are trying to give up coffee. Some of them say the problem with their coffee is everything that they add to it, while others say that they’ve heard caffeine ages you. One friend simply said she doesn’t want to depend on coffee to get through her day. I can give up a lot of things if I need to, but coffee would be really hard for me! What is your opinion on the pros and cons of coffee? I either drink it black, or with a little cream.

  • Tricia in Vienna

 

18:11 - Q: I live right behind a police station, and recently received a letter that some heavy metals were found on site and in the water. The letter recommended that all residents with a ½ mile radius have their ground water well tested for contaminates, and said that the City Health and Public Works Department will come out and test this for free. None of my neighbors seem to be freaking out about this, but I am. Have you heard of something like this before? I have scheduled my appointment, which is a few weeks out. In the meantime, should I be avoiding my water? Drinking it, showering in it, etc. And there are the what if’s after the Health Department comes out…if they say the water is safe, should I continue business as usual, and if it is not safe, what should I do? HELP!

  • Courtney in Virginia Beach

 

 

21:04 - Q: My mom had gallbladder issues in her 40s, and had to have it removed after a lot of pain and complications. I want to do things that promote good gallbladder health so that I can keep mine as long as possible. What kinds of foods should I be eating or avoiding, and are there any supplements that you recommend?

  • Tracie in Winston Salem

 

22:55 - Anonymous Question

 

23:55 - Q: I deal with hypothyroidism, and have recently been learning how that is related to my bile and gallbladder. It’s all so confusing, I am trying to figure out if my gallbladder is causing thyroid issues or my thyroid is causing my gallbladder issues, but I keep hearing people talk about how I need to create healthy bile! Can you talk about how these two are related (the thyroid and the gallbladder), and the role of bile?

  • Rose in Destin

 

27:16 - Q: I recently heard a doctor on another podcast talking about olive oil. He said it is the best thing ever for us, and that we can’t get enough of it, that we should be putting it on everything that we eat! I was wondering if you agree with this, first of all, and also, if there is such thing as too much healthy fats. Will the hurt my gallbladder?

  • Kim in Ohio

 

30:53 - Q: I tried to give blood today, and the nurse on the bloodmobile told me that my iron was too low. This is the first I’ve heard of this being an issue for me! What are some things I can do to improve my iron?

-Lexi in Norfolk

 

32:10 - Q: I eat really healthy, work out 5x week, have been doing Intermittent Fasting in about a 6 hour window, but I am still really tired! Everything seems to be fine except my Ferratin levels are low, while my iron is normal. What is the difference in iron levels and Ferratin levels, and could this be what is making me tired?

  • Sarah in Providence

 

40:44 - Q: My thyroid is getting a little better since I’ve been fasting, but my numbers still aren’t back to normal.  My doctor has said that I am low in iodine, and that I can get iodine in dairy. But I thought dairy wasn’t good for my thyroid? I am so tired of this conflicting information! What can I do to raise my iodine levels and should I be eating dairy?

  • Becky in New York

 

43:24 - Q: I have been really trying to follow the 80/20 principle and have cleaned up my diet a lot, even getting rid of dairy and gluten but my Psoriasis and eczema are still out of control. Do you have any other tips I can try?

#74 How to counteract a Gluten Attack, How to fix gut health, and is Alkaline water really good for you? With Autumn Smith!

January 25, 2019

Welcome back to the Waist Away Podcast! Today’s guest is the cofounder of  Paleo Valley, which is an INCREDIBLE online resource, with a ton of helpful information, and a line of incredible products that she helped create. She is also one of the cohosts of the Optimize Paleo Podcast, which has become one of my favorites to listen to. Please welcome Autumn Smith!

Video version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is_z5WprLns&feature=youtu.be

Check out Autumn's online store: https://paleovalley.com/ (use the promo code 'autumn10' to get 10% off her products!!)

 

SPEAKER QUESTIONS:

Q1 - 02:28

I know you had some frustrations with the “healthy” foods that were on the market and all of their crazy ingredients, which just drives me crazy too! So you created a bunch of your own. How did your Paleovalley product line come to be?

Q2 - 09:02

When we were preparing for this interview, you told me that one of the things you are really passionate about is educating people on micronutrient deficiency, which can rear its head in everything from dandruff to weight gain and high blood pressure. It can really lead to some serious issues, and for some people, it’s not even on their radar! Can you talk a little about this?

Q3 - 11:44

Another thing that you are passionate about is functional testing, which is something I know so many of our listeners would be interested in because so many people want to know what the heck is wrong with them, or why they aren’t feeling 100%. There are so many different options out there, to check your gut, hormones, antibodies, and a bunch of other stuff. What have you learned about functional testing, and what has your experience been with it?

Q4 - 15:22 

Before we get started with Listener Questions, I want to ask you something that I ask all my guests…walk us through a day in the life of Autumn, what and when do you eat on a typical day? Or just tell us what you ate yesterday for example?

 

LISTENER QUESTIONS: 

Q1 - 21:25

I was at one of my favorite local restaurants last week, and requested my sandwich on a gluten free bun, but I immediately felt horrible afterwards. My stomach was in knots, and I just felt so icky the rest of the day. I figure that they accidentally gave me regular bread, which has happened before. Next time this happens (which hopefully it won’t), what should I do to counteract this gluten attack?

  • Carol in Arkansas

Q2 - 25:19 

I developed a really bad staph infection and had no choice but to take an antibiotic, which I ABSOLULTELY hate to do! I was scared and didn’t want it to spread. Anyways, I am done with the antibiotic, my staph infection is gone, and now I want to get my gut back in order! What can I do to get my gut health in check after wrecking it with antibiotics?

  • Pamela in Forest, Virginia

Q3 - 27:00

My friend has been obsessed with Alkaline water lately, she swears by it! I saw it for sale by the gallon at my local juice bar the other day and asked the cashier about it. She said I should start with a level 7, because if I started with a level 10, I could become violently ill and get a migraine, since I am not used to alkaline water. It struck me as odd that any sort of water could make me sick! Then I remembered something you said on your podcast about how you aren’t a fan of it, but I couldn’t remember why. What is your opinion on alkaline water, and why?

  • Mariah in New Mexico

Q4 - 30:51

I recently started eating Paleo, and am really enjoying the energy I am feeling during the day, but I have had the hardest time sleeping! I’ve also noticed that when I do sleep, I have really odd/vivid dreams. I was reading online that this is common for people who cut out sugar. Why is this? Will I go back to normal soon?

  • Karen in Northern VA

Q5 - 37:03 

My questions is that my scale has not moved, and I have not lost inches. But I looked at my Christmas photos, and I look visibly smaller. My arms and even legs look more trim. How is it possible to look thinner, but the scale and measurements haven’t changed? Love your podcast, I listen every day at work!

  • Lauri from Sparks, Nevada

Q6 - 42:31

So.. I know at some point, I gotta give up cheese.. Ive always loved cheese! All of a sudden however, I have been tasting the salt immensely in the cheese.😣😣 I did pray recently to the Lord to change my taste buds to the foods he wants me to eat. I like you did, have HYPOTHYROIDISM. I know the Lord is calling me to a natural way of eating. So.. In paleo, I saw raw dairy cheese as acceptable.. So in my case, what should I do?

  • Rosario

#71 - Is Salt Good or Bad, Highlighter Diarrhea, and can You Be Keto and Intermittent Fast at the Same Time?? w/Best Selling Author Jimmy Moore

January 11, 2019

Today’s guest is the host of the La Vida Low Carb podcast, which I appeared on recently and had a BLAST! He is also the co- host of Keto Talk with Dr Will Cole, and the author of several books including Keto Clarity and Cholesterol Clarity, and the Complete Guide to Fasting, which he co-authored with Dr Jason Fung…it is one of my favorites! His most recent project is “Real Food Keto”, which he wrote with his wife, Christine. I am sooo excited to have them both on the show today! Please welcome Jimmy and Christine Moore.

Video Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2gsKCuzvR4

Jimmy's Website: http://www.livinlavidalowcarb.com

 

 STARTING QUESTIONS:

For our listeners that don’t know you, tell us about both of your personal journeys, how long have you been Livin La Vida Low Carb, and what caused you to start on this journey? You’ve been “Keto” long before Keto was a popular thing, early 2000’s right?

In your new book, Real Food Keto, you talk about focusing on whole foods, which is something a lot of Keto people don’t talk abo. Tell us about what makes your book different from the other books written about the keto diet?

Everyone knows about the Keto diet as it pertains to weight loss, but your book digs into so many other topics like digestion and detoxification. Tell us some more about these other benefits that aren’t spoken of as much in Keto Circles?

Another cool thing about the book is that it has a bunch of recipes! Did you help develop these? Which are some of your favorites in the book?

What would you say some of the most common misconceptions about the Keto Diet are, and how do you combat them?

Let’s talk about Intermittent Fasting. I find that a lot of Keto people have been able to easily transition into Intermittent Fasting, and vice versa. How are the two related?

Before we get started with Listener Questions, I want to ask you a question I ask every guest, walk us through a day in the life of Jimmy and Christine. What do you eat on any given day, take yesterday for example? What time do you usually eat your first meal, last meal, etc.

As I talked about, you have a lot going on between your podcasts, books, Youtube, etc. What is the best one stop shop that our listeners can follow you to keep posted on all that you are doing? Also, you need to tell the listeners about your Low Carb cruise which sounds like a ton of fun!

Listener Questions:

Q1 - 10:44

I was talking about the Keto diet with my girl friend the other day and she told me she was doing something called the Modified Keto diet which is a lot less restrictive. Are you familiar with this, and can you please explain it? Is this something that you recommend?

-Samantha in New Jersey

Q2 - 15:14

I have been consistently intermittent fasting for a year now, typically in a 6 hour eating window each day. The longest I’ve ever fasted is 24 hours. I want to push myself to a longer fast, but want to be safe in doing so. What are some good ways to ease into longer fasts? What is the longest amount of time that it is safe to water fast?

-Cynthia in Myrtle Beach

Q3 -  31:35

High Cholesterol runs in my family, and the last time I had bloodwork done, my LDL was slightly elevated. Of course, the doc wanted to put me on medication but I am not ready to do that. What can I do to try to reverse this naturally? I am 40 years old, about 20 lb overweight.

-Tracie in Fort Worth

Q4 -  24:53

I read something the other day about the Keto diet treating fatty liver disease. I found this to be insane since the Keto diet is a high fat diet. This really got me thinking how counter cultural this diet can seem. For example, there are some people who think I should limit the amount of red meat, and steaks, while they are a staple of the Keto diet. In the simplest way, how do you describe the benefits of a high fat diet to people who just don’t get it?

  • Anonymous

Q5 - 29:30

I am in my first week of Keto and having severe aches in my arms and legs. I haven’t been doing anything out of the ordinary as far as workouts, so I can’t help but wonder if this was related to my diet change? I started googling and saw that this is common when transitioning to Keto, and one reason I read was that my salt levels could be low? My whole life I’ve been trying to limit my salt, I’ve heard its especially bad for women and weight loss. Now I am hearing that I should be adding more salt to my food and even into my water to avoid these aches. Is this true? And if so, why?

-Toni in New York

Q6 - 32:19

Can you help me settle the keto alcohol debate once and for all? I am told that things like whiskey and vodka don’t contain carbs, so to my understanding, if I drink them with soda water or something like Diet Pepsi or crystal light, it should be a carb free drink? So why do some people say you can’t drink alcohol and stay in Ketosis? I’ve cut out wine and beer, and felt this was a good alternative. Also, along these lines, I’ve been told that flavored vodkas don’t have carbs in them, but can’t understand how this is true. Something about the sugar being cooked out? How can I cut loose and still cut my weight at the same time?

-Jennifer in Lancaster

Q7 - 35:06

I started the keto diet and the first two days I had the worst stomach cramps on bright yellow diarrhea. I’ve never seen it this color before. It was the color of a highlighter. I went back to normal eventually, but it was still alarming. Have you ever heard of this and what is the cause?

Speaker Questions

Q1 - 09:54

I get a lot of questions about Ketosis- how can someone tell when they are in ketosis, how long does it usually take people to get into ketosis, and can one little slip up, like a cookie or something throw you right out of ketosis? Can you talk a little about the state of Ketosis?

Q2 - 12:25

A big piece of this book, and the Keto Reset is Intermittent Fasting, which is of course what we got started talking about on this show. Will you explain how Keto and Intermittent Fasting go hand in hand? What are the hours that you personally eat and fast each day?

 

Listener Questions

Q1 - 20:11

I ate Keto for almost a year and several months ago I fell off the wagon and have had the hardest time getting back into it. I have a couple good days and then I fall off again. I miss how I feel in Ketosis and really want to get back to it, not only was I losing weight, but I felt GREAT! Do you have any tips to get me back in the zone?

  • Julie in Rock Hill

 

Q2 - 24:53

Since I struggle with Autoimmune issues, I always assumed gluten was just about the worst thing, but I could eat, but lately I realize that it’s dairy that is really affecting me. I’ve noticed that when I have dairy it just makes me so tired and I feel awful. I don’t want to completely deprive myself and binge out. I’ve heard that sheep and goat dairy are the best forms of dairy that I should focus on. What are your thoughts on dairy, and if I were to have just a little, what are some of the best sources?

  • Lisa in Greenville

 

Q3 - 26:47

I’ve heard nightmare stories about starting the Keto diet, including the Keto Flu, and everything else from bad breath, constipation, to low sex drive. I want to get started, but all of these horror stories kind of freak me out. What are some things I can do to make the transition smoother?

  • Jamie in Virginia Beach

 

Q4 - 32:40 

What are some of your favorite keto sweet treats? I am not a huge sweet person but sometimes I just want a little bite of something. One thing I enjoy is a spoon or two of whipped cream, which is only about 1 carb per TBSP, but I know the chemicals in it are not good for me. What are some better alternatives?

  • Kyle in Arizona

 

Q5 - 34:37

I’ve lost about 60 pounds over the past year following Intermittent Fasting and the Keto diet. I have about 15 lbs left to go (20 would be nice), and those last few lbs are just so stubborn? I am doing the same thing I’ve been doing, just so stalled! What should I do?

  • Joanne in Idaho

 

Q6 - 38:06

Is there a difference in the Keto diet, versus Atkins and South Beach? My friends try to tell me they are the same thing with a different name, but I feel like Atkins and South Beach are focused more on low carbs and include a lot more artificial ingredients like their bars and frozen meals. What are some other differences?

SPEAKER QUESTIONS

I was browsing your website and saw that you interned with Dr Kalish, who was a previous guest on our show, and someone that I am a huge fan of! Tell us how you got started in this field?

One of the first times I heard you was on the Candida Summit with Evan Brand. Candida is something we talk about a lot on the show, and recently we’ve received a few questions about Small Intenstin Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBL) which has a lot of the same symptoms of Candida. How can we know the difference in the two?

Your website is awesome, you have a ton of resources, so I want to make sure our listeners can find you at justinhealth.com. Tell us about what else you offer, how can we get in touch with you, and what kind of consults do you provide?

Before we get started with listener questions, something I always like to ask our guests is to walk us through a typical day in your life. What did you eat yesterday? Our podcast started out talking about Intermittent Fasting, is this something that you do? When do you typically eat?

 

LISTENER QUESTIONS

Q1 - 07:43

I’ve been eating 90% clean and sticking with a 6 hour eating window consistently. I haven’t been drinking alcohol very much, but I have several Christmas parties in the next couple weeks and I want to cut loose, but not ruin the good results I am seeing. When I have a couple glasses of wine here and there I can’t believe how puffy it makes me feel almost immediately! What are some of the “better” drinks I should order? And what is your opinion on drinking in general when I am working towards a healthy lifestyle?

  • Kate in Kansas City

 

Q2 - 10:56

You’ve touched on Red light therapy in previous podcasts, and I feel like it is popping up everywhere! My local tanning salon has a red light therapy chamber, and another friend of mine just ordered a single bulb that she hangs above her face. Do you think there is really something to this, or is it just another fad?

  • Amy in TX

 

Q3 - 12:28

Q4 - 14:00

I was having some terrible pain in my knee when I worked out, so I went to the doctor and he told me I am developing arthritis in my right knee. I always thought arthritis affected older people with an unhealthy lifestyle and was really disappointed to hear this. I don’t want to completely stop working out all together, but I also don’t want to make it worse. What should I be doing to remain active, but also to prevent this from worsening? Also, what is the difference in rheumatoid arthritis and what I am experiencing? Could my knee issue develop into rheumatoid arthritis in other places in my body?

  • Rachel in Nevada

 

Q5 - 17:43 

A couple podcasts back, your guest mentioned that I should be pooping one time for every time that I eat. I am typically eating two hours per day in a 6 hour eating window, but I am lucky to poop one time per day, at the MOST! What are some things that I can be doing to get more regular movements, and should I really be concerned with going two times per day?

  • Anonymous

 

Q6 - 20:19

I used to get migraines as a teenager, a couple times a year…really bad ones that made me vomit. I didn’t have them for over ten years, but in the past 6 months, I’ve had atleast 6 of them. They are so bad that I can’t function, or do anything besides lay there and wait for them to pass, I can’t even sleep. I went to the doctor to get checked out and they can’t find anything wrong with me that would explain them coming back. What could have caused them to disappear and come back suddenly? I am paranoid that something is really wrong, and I can’t afford to miss out on anymore work or life.

  • Tina in South Carolina

 

Q7 - 23:20 

My husband had a check up, and found out that he had high levels of ferritin. This was the first time I ever heard of this. I understand it is somehow related to iron but I am struggling to understand the connection and the difference. Is this something he should be concerned with?

  • Crystal in Augusta

 

Q8 - 24:28

Lately my periods have been really really strong and I went to the doctor recently and found out that my iron levels are low, and my estrogen levels are high. I’ve tried taking iron supplements but they all seem to make me really constipated. How can I address these iron issues without being constipated! Are there other supplements you recommend, or foods I should focus on? I have a blood drive coming up at my work and I am really hesitant to give blood until I can get my iron under control. A friend told me that when you give blood it encourages your body to make more, but she is not a doctor, and I want to be sure I am taking all the right steps.

  • Veronica in Buffalo

 

Q9 - 27:55

 

Q10 - 30:41

I’ve always struggled with getting my water in each day. I heard once that I should be drinking half my body weight in ounces of water. Usually I start off my day really slow, and find myself chugging towards the end of the day to get it all in. The other day, my trainer told me that chugging isn’t good because my body doesn’t absorb the water as well that way. He said that I should sip on it and even move it around in my mouth. This is the first time I’ve ever heard anything like this. Is there any truth behind it? Is it pointless to drink water if I am chugging it down?

#68 - Build Your Body From The Outside In, Pooping After Every Meal, and How to NOT Crave Sugar w/Wade Lightheart

December 21, 2018

Today’s guest is a 3 Time Canadian Natural Bodybuilding Champion, an author, and a huge advocate for natural nutrition and training methods. He’s the president of  BiOptimizers , a company that helps to fix gut health, AND the host of the Awesome Health Podcast. It is such an honor to have Wade Lightheart on the show today!

Video Version: https://youtu.be/M57BPWkEtbc

Wade Lightheart's Website: http://www.wadelightheart.net/

Speaker Questions

You’re the first bodybuilding champion we’ve had on the show, tell us how you got started in the world of Bodybuilding?

How did you transition into the world of gut health and digestion, is this something you suffered with personally, did you see a lot of other bodybuilders struggling with this?

So what all do you offer through Bioptimizers? I was browsing the site and the Gluten Guardian caught my eye because my body does not handle gluten well and I know many of our listeners struggle with this too. But it’s more than the supplements, you offer courses and so many resources.

You talk openly about being vegetarian, what caused you to make this decision, and what changes have you noticed in your body since you made the switch?

You are also a fan of Intermittent Fasting, how long have you been doing this, and what is your daily eating window like? What kind of feedback from the body-building community did you get when you started talking about fasting?

Before we get started with listener questions, I always like to ask my guests “what did you eat yesterday?” Walk us through a day in your life.

 

Listener Questions:

Q1: 24:26

My friend recently purchased a Kangen water system and is a HUGE fan. Not only does she drink it, but she told me about adjusting different PH levels for things like soaking vegetables, treating moles on her skin, showering, etc. I know it is quite the investment, and I am wondering about the science behind how this works, and is it worth the money, or in her head? She tells me it’s not just about the PH, but also the ionization that breaks the water molecules down.

-Amy in Virginia Beach

Q2: 30:21

I’ve been researching proteolytic enzymes because I have heard they can be so good for the inflammation that I deal with, as well as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Is it safe to take these while I am doing my longer 24-48 hour fasts? Also, are there any particular brands that you recommend? What are some foods that I can eat which are natural sources of these powerful enzymes?

-Clare in Nevada

 

Q3: 35:38

I had a sinus infection that just wouldn’t go away, and my doctor insisted on putting me on an antibiotic. I hate taking an antibiotic and really didn’t want to do this but it did help me clear up. What can I do/take to get my gut back to normal after the antibiotics infiltrated my system?

-Carter in Gainesville

 

Q4: 37:32

This is so gross, but something I am so curious about! I recently read something in Women’s Health about different poop colors revealing different health issues, or areas of concern. Is this really true? If so, what should I be looking out for? What are some signs of a really good, healthy poop?

-Anonymous

 

Q5: 39:35

I recently saw an article about Round Up pesticide being traced to cancer, which is scary. I buy about 90% organic produce, but on your podcast the other day, I heard that even some produce from a farmers market could have pesticides on it! How can I know that what I am buying is safe, and how do you recommend that I wash my produce in order to be extra sure?

Laura in Western Branch

 

Q6: 41:39

This question is so controversial, literally every person/expert says something completely different, same with every article/book that I read on the subject. What is the healthy number of times to go to the bathroom per day or per week? I hear so many people say they go every day, and that is just not the case for me, I am lucky to go 3x week. I feel fine, I don’t have any symptoms that lead me to believe I have gut issues otherwise. Is everyone different?

James' Website: http://jimlavalle.com/

Facebook Giveaway: https://www.facebook.com/TheChantelRayWay/videos/1867221096722585/

Starting Questions:

 James, we just did a very broad overview of everything you’ve done over the past 40 years, what have you been passionate about in 2018, and what are you looking forward to next year?

I want to talk about one of your books, “Cracking the Metabolic Code”…you talk about healing things like cancer, diabetes, and depression in a really natural way, with 9 Keys to Optimal Health, can you tell us a little about this and maybe share a couple of the keys?

I’ve heard you talk some about fasting, and you talk about how you recommend eating within a certain schedule for several days per week, then at least two days per week you do a longer fast. What is your personal fasting schedule, and what do you say to people who ask what the ideal fasting schedule would be?

You’ve also mentioned the Fasting Mimicking diet, which we talked about with a different guest a couple weeks ago. Can you expand on what you recommend as the Fasting Mimicking Diet, and explain again how it works?

Before I get started on listener questions, I always like to ask my guests, what did you eat yesterday? Walk us through a day in your life?

Listener Questions:

Q1 - 22:05

I recently had some blood work done to see why I wasn’t feeling normal and my Doctor told me that my blood work showed some Hepatitis B. She said that the Hepatitis B is not active currently, but that it was active in my system at one point. I am trying to figure out what caused this. How recent would I have to have had it in order for it to appear in my blood work? And what are some of the most common foods that cause it? Could this be part of the reason I don’t feel my liver is functioning correctly, even though it apparently is no longer active?

-Angela in Northern Va

Q2 - 24:05

I’ve always considered myself a hot natured person, even If everyone else around me is comfortable, I am usually hot and clammy. One of my best friends is the complete opposite, she is ALWAYS cold. Is this just the way we were wired, or is being way too hot or way too cold a sign of something deeper? We are both in our 30’s and to our knowledge, don’t have any major health issues. Should we look into this?

* Pati in Greenville

Q3 - 25:29

 

I have two questions. I am relatively new to fasting, and I'm breaking out with a rash and I did some research. Supposedly it is because of the less income of caloric intake. Please tell me if this is temporary or are there steps ill need to take? I decided to just "take a break" for a few days. This rash hurts.

Also, When I am in my fasting window, does a splash of lemon in my water break my fast?

-Rosario

Q4 - 27:26

My father had Type 2 Diabetes, and I watched him experiment with every medication, blood thinners, insulin, anything that his Doctor said would help. I am 25 now and pay really close attention to my health and my blood sugar. Apparently, everything looks good now, but I know it can be hereditary. I don’t want to be a slave to medicine like my dad was. What are some things I can start doing now that are preventative, and if I do become diabetic, what is the best way to treat Type 2 naturally?

* Brian in Alabama

Q5 - 33:55

I have been doing Intermittent Fasting for about 3-4 months and have been doing great, trying to eat clean, while allowing myself the occasional splurge so I am not deprived. However, the past few weeks have been so hard for me! I always get so stressed around Christmas time, between holiday events, budgeting for all of the gifts, family drama, it is really affecting me this year especially. Some people starve themselves when they are stressed, but I tend to overeat. I don’t want to spend my whole December like this, and carry it into the winter, which is always a blue time for me. Do you have any advice?

-Anonymous

Q6 - 36:39

My bloodwork came back showing that I have very low Vitamin D. I wasn’t surprised considering this is called the Sunshine Vitamin, and it is cold and December! I never thought of Vitamin D as being super important or talked about, what are some of the functions that are affected by it? And since it’s not realistic for me to lay in the sun, what are the best sources for me to increase my Vitamin D levels naturally? Do you recommend tanning beds or red light therapy?

-Dawn in Oregon

You may recognize him from the Dr Oz show, where he is a frequent member of the medical advisory board. Not only is he is an expert on nutrition and national healing, but he is quite the athlete!

STARTER QUESTIONS

- You’ve been doing this for 25 years, how did you get started in the world of medicine and nutrition? What are some of the biggest changed you’ve seen in the general public’s perception and mindset over the 25 years?

- You talk a lot about the Nutritarian Diet, and even created a food pyramid for it which I think is incredible, it looks very different from the classic food pyramid. It’s all about eating foods that have a high proportion of nutrients to calories. What are some of your favorite foods that fit this proportion? Are there any foods that you think we’d be surprised to hear make the list, or foods that are on your best or worst list?

- Your latest book is called “The End of Dieting” and I just LOVE this title and this concept, because I think fad diets are the worst! Tell us a little more about the book?

- In the book, you talk about food addicts, how can someone know if they are a food addict, and what are some of the things you recommend to them?

- You wrote a book called “Fasting and Eating for Health”, before Intermittent Fasting became widely known. What are some of the conditions you’ve seen healed or improved over your career by fasting? Personally, what is your typical eating and fasting schedule?

- Before we get to listener questions, I want to tell everyone that they have got to check out your website because there are so many resources, you have a shop with member deals, a Vitamin Advisor, tons of recipes, and of course info about all your books and your events. It’s drfurman.com.

- I know you are really passionate about your Eat to Live retreat, I saw your brochure for it and it looks INCREDIBLE! Tell our listeners all about it, and your other retreats, which are all over the world!.

 

Listener Questions

Q1 - 29:23

My Doctor told me that my cholesterol is not ideal. He is trying to get me to take a medication, but I want that to be the last resort, I want to try to lower my cholesterol naturally first. I am 50 years old, and I am in my ideal weight range. What can I do to attempt to lower this without medication?

* Jeff in Florida

Q2 - 31:05

I suffer from psoriasis, which has always been uncomfortable for me, but I am really freaking out now because I am getting married in six months. It is worst on my face and is very noticeable. Probably like everyone who suffers, my flare-ups seem to be completely unpredictable, which of course means there is a chance I could flare up on my wedding day- especially because I will most likely be stressed. Is there anything I can do to help control/prevent a possible flare-up on that day? I will try LITERALLY anything!!!!!!

* Kim in Baltimore

Q3 - 34:44

Thanks to your encouragement, I just finished a 5-day water fast about a week ago! Unfortunately, I felt like total crap for the last three days, it was almost unbearable. The good news is that since I finished the fast, I have noticed a lot of improvement in my joint pain that I deal with every day, and I think psoriasis in my forehead is clearing up. To me, that makes the fast worth it, and I do want to try again. Do you have any tips to make the water fast a little more bearable? And what amount of time do you recommend water fasting, what would be the shortest amount of time I could fast to see these benefits, and what is the longest amount of time that you recommend water fasting?

* -Parker in Virginia Beach

Q4 - 36:17 I asked my local farmer's market if indeed their produce is organic...they said no. But isn't all farmer's market produce organic due to the fact the produce is picked and brought straight to the market?

-Rosario

Q5 - 37:22 My daughters both do the Keto diet and have a lot of success with it, they are always bugging me to jump on the bandwagon. My hesitation is that I had my gallbladder removed a couple years ago and when I did, my doctor told me to avoid fatty foods. From my understanding of the Keto diet, for it to be successful, you have to eat a lot of healthy fats, which concerns me. What do you recommend for people who are interested in this diet but have no gallbladder? I am worried if I try the low carb without high fats that I will be hungry all the time and won’t see the results.

* Patty in Tennessee

Q6 - 39:39

I have a lingering cold/cough that won’t go away. I’ve had it for almost a month now! I’ve tried Vitamin C, Echinacea, all kinds of Essential Oils, basically every natural remedy I can think of, and nothing is working! I’ve hesitated to go to the Doctor because I don’t want to take an antibiotic. How do I know when it is time to go? Do you have any other natural remedy recommendations that I should try?

* Michelle in Columbus

#65 How to do cardio without a treadmill, what is the Fasting Mimicking diet, and what exercises are good for shaping your legs and butt? With Jill Brown!

December 3, 2018

Today’s guest is a Los Angeles based Fitness Professional with 25 years of experience teaching and training, having worked at all of LA’s most prestigious studios and fitness facilities.

She’s transformed thousands of lives through fitness and healthy lifestyle changes, and it is an honor to have her on today’s show, please welcome Jill Brown!

Jill Brown's Website: http://www.jillbrownfitness.com/site/ 

Listen on YouTube: https://youtu.be/1JRBnAyAaOk

 

 STARTER QUESTIONS:

- Tell us about yourself, how and when did you develop a passion for fitness, and helping others meet their goals?

- Before we move to listener questions, I always like to ask our guests what they eat. This podcast started off talking about Intermittent Fasting, which I know that you are a fan of. What kind of eating pattern do you follow, and what kinds of foods do you eat? Are there any foods/food groups that you eliminate or limit while in your eating window?

- A LOT of people in the fitness industry talk about eating a ton of small meals throughout the day, cramming food in when you aren’t really hungry, what do you say to these people in regards to fasting?

 

LISTENER QUESTIONS:

Q1 - 12:19

I HATE, HATE, HATE cardio! I’ve tried everything, downloading podcasts, watching TV shows, anything to pass time on the treadmill or elliptical and am just bored out of my mind. I’m not really a group exercise person either. I really love lifting weights and strength training, but everyone says I need to get that cardio in. What are some good forms of exercise to get my heart rate up that don’t involve 30 min on a piece of cardio equipment?

- Cassie in Kentucky

 

Q2 - 16:26

A couple episodes back, your guest briefly mentioned the Fasting Mimicking Diet, which was brand new to me. I thought it was an odd concept because the whole benefit of fasting seems to be depriving your body of food to give your digestive system time to rest, and your body time to heal. Can you talk more about how this works, and is there a certain system that you purchase or follow?

- Serena in Virginia Beach

 

Q3 - 21:41

I have Arthritis in one of my knees, and my doctor told me that walking on an incline is one of the worst exercises I can do for it, which I always loved to do because it makes a difference in my butt and legs. Squats and lunges with weights can be painful, and I just hate pushing it, because my knee hurts so bad the next day. I do enjoy spin classes, which don’t bother my knee, but because of my schedule and the schedule at my gym, I can’t do this every day.  What are some other workouts that are really good for shaping my legs and butt but don’t put so much strain on the knee? And how do I find the balance of pushing through the pain and listening to my body?

-Alice in Greenville

 

Q4 - 24:29

I am going to Europe for 3 weeks, which is a real dream come true! I know that we will be doing a LOT of eating, and drinking. I figure this is a once in a life time opportunity, and I want to experience it all, but I also don’t want to come home 20 lbs heavier lol! We are crashing at a couple Air BnBs, so I don’t have the option of a hotel gym. In addition to the walking around we will be doing, what are some simple exercises/routines that I can do with minimal equipment?

-Melissa in Northern VA

 

Q5 - 27:05

Recently I’ve had some severe pain in my left shoulder. It came after an intense upper body day. I’ve gone to the orthopedist before for something similar, but with my knee, they said that I should rest, listen to my body, not overdo it, etc. I didn’t want to pay to go to the Doctor to hear the same thing about my shoulder, so I’ve put it off. My question is how can I tell the difference in soreness, and something being wrong? How long should I wait to go? I am 40, so nothing works quite like it used to, and I don’t want to run to the Doc every time I have an ache. Also, I would love your input on general soreness. I once had a trainer tell me that in order to build muscle, I need to be sore. Sometimes, after an intense leg day, I am so sore I can hardly walk, and I feel my legs buckling. Is it true that I need to get this sore in order for my workouts to be effective? Finally, what are your tips for sore muscle relief?

-Tara in Pittsburg

 

Q6 - 29:39 

I am a really busy working mom…my husband travels for work and is gone 75% of the time, and between sports, after school program, and lack of childcare, the only real time I can get to workout is an evening, when I go for a power walk and bring my kids with me on their bikes. I enjoy this because we are spending time together and I am burning some calories, but I want to kick it up a notch. What can I do to intensify these walks a bit?

-Heather in Chesapeake

#64 - Meal Prep Tips, How to NOT Eat When Bored, Why You’re Not Losing Weight at the Gym w/ Jessie Conley

November 26, 2018

Today’s guest is the host of the “Life Fueled by Faith” a health and weight loss podcast for Christian women, which I absolutely love to listen to! She’s a certified health and weight loss coach and is making a huge impact on so many women through her courses and coaching. It’s an honor to have her on the show, please welcome Jessie Conley!

Jesse Connley's Website: https://www.jessieconley.com/

Listen on YouTube: https://youtu.be/SQDbBAidECY

 

 STARTER QUESTIONS:

- Tell us a little about yourself and how you became so passionate about helping other women, I know that everything changed for you when you had your children, as it did for me. A lot of women can relate to that!

- You are a big advocate for intermittent fasting, what is your daily eating schedule like?

- What kinds of foods do you eat, is there anything that is off limits for you?

- You are really outspoken about your faith, which I really respect! How has your relationship with God impacted your view of yourself, your body, and diet and exercise?

- Before we get to listener questions, tell us about some of the courses you offer, I know you offer one about emotional eating, and about intermittent fasting, what else do you provide?

 

LISTENER QUESTIONS:

Q1 - 16:18 

I have a four-year-old daughter and recently gave birth to a son about 6 months ago. When I had my daughter, I was in my 20s and the weight literally fell off, but I am 31 now and it is completely different. I’ve tried cutting out sugar and carbs, but even that isn’t working. I hear you talking a lot about Intermittent Fasting on the podcast and want to try it, but I see a lot of mixed reviews for moms that are breastfeeding. What is your opinion on IF and breastfeeding?

-Mary in Dayton

Q2 - 19:46

You’ve mentioned before that one of the benefits of Intermittent Fasting is less meal prep- which I absolutely love! I typically eat one meal a day, which is dinner. By the time I get off work and pick up my kids from daycare, it’s almost 6 pm and I really don’t feel like cooking! But it is so important to me that my family sits down and eats dinner together like I did when I was growing up. Do you have any good meal prep tips to share so that I spend less time in the kitchen in the evening, but don’t settle for unhealthy, convenient foods?

I loved your podcast about emotional eating! I took your online quiz and determined that I am a stress eater, which didn’t surprise me one bit. I love to go through the drive-through at the end of a stressful day. I have been really mindful about finding other outlets for my stress, and have been doing a lot better. The area I still struggle with is my bored eating, mostly at night when I am hanging out at home. I just can’t stop grazing! Do you have any tips to help with this?

I am really frustrated because I have been working out with a trainer 3x a week for the past two months, and am not seeing results. The first month, I didn’t lose any weight but I was kind of prepared for that because I heard it was normal. However, I just had my month 2 weigh in and the scale has only budged a pound! Do you think I am not doing the right kinds of exercises with my trainer? What kind of exercise do you recommend? As for my eating, I am sticking to a 6-hour eating window each day, and trying to stay under 1600 calories. Am I eating too much in my window? HELP!

I’ve been married for about a year now. As soon as I got married I determined that I was not going to be that person who let herself go once she landed a guy! Around that time I started Intermittent Fasting. Most days I eat in about a 6-hour window, sometimes I eat One Meal A Day. This sounds weird, but I’ve noticed lately it is taking a toll on my relationship! My husband works crazy hours, and our time to connect is in the evenings. One of our favorite things to do is go out and have dinner, or make something really yummy at home and enjoys it together with wine. Typically, this didn’t happen till 8 or 9. Now that I am limiting my eating window, I can’t do this anymore…esp on days I eat one meal a day, there’s no way in heck I can wait til 8p. My husband mentioned the other day that he misses this. I love fasting and don’t want to sacrifice my health but I also don’t want my marriage to suffer. What do you recommend?
