The Dark Side of Fast Food Industry

7/22/2024
In this podcast, we’re going to talk about some of the fast food industry’s secrets that can keep you wanting more but are detrimental to your health. The average American consumes between 2 and 3 fast food meals per week, which adds up to 150 to 200 meals per year. Even if you order value meals or make choices from the dollar menu, most people spend around $1500 to $2000 per year on fast food. The fast food industry uses all sorts of marketing tactics to keep you wanting more. Mcdonald’s uses yellow and red, which stimulate impulsivity, increase serotonin, and even encourage you to eat faster. The fast food industry also targets children, hence the playgrounds and happy meals at fast food restaurants. They use upselling techniques by offering fries or a combo, which can increase profits by more than 22%. Prices containing the number 9 can increase the likelihood of making a purchase! McDonald’s is one of the largest beef buyers in the U.S. They use low-quality factory-farmed beef fattened with grains and treated with antibiotics. Fast food meals also contain poor-quality ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, corn oil, soy oil, corn flour, corn starch, and fillers like maltodextrin. These ingredients are highly processed and highly inflammatory. Although fast food may seem cheaper and more convenient in the short term, it can cause massive health consequences in the long term.

7 Foods to Avoid

7/22/2024
Today, I’m going to tell you about 7 foods to avoid, along with some healthy alternatives. 1. Liquid sugar Soda, juice, and high-sugar beverages deplete your body's vitamin and mineral reserves and contribute to insulin resistance. If you like soda, try Zevia zero-sugar soda instead! 2. Processed cheese Pasteurized cheese products can’t be called cheese if they contain less than 51% cheese. Processed cheeses typically contain skim milk, canola oil, milk protein concentrate, modified food starch, whey protein, maltodextrin, preservatives, and salt. Choose real cheese instead! 3. Protein bars Many protein bars are worse than candy bars! They’re often made with soy protein isolates and casein, and can contain 30 to 47 grams of sugar per bar! This number doesn’t include the starches, which are also sugar. Protein bars are usually sweetened with highly processed sweeteners such as rice syrup, corn syrup, and tapioca syrup. Some are sweetened with sucralose, an artificial sweetener made from a chlorine compound. Try boiled eggs, cheese, and meat jerky for quick protein. 4. Seed oil mayonnaise Almost every mayo available lists soy oil as its first ingredient. Soy oil is a seed oil that’s highly processed using solvents like hexane. It’s high in omega-6s, which can be highly inflammatory. Look for mayo that is made with avocado oil and zero seed oils. Chosen Foods mayo and Primal Kitchen mayo are much better options. 5. Sweetened, flavored yogurt Seventy percent of the yogurt people buy is sweetened, flavored yogurt. This yogurt contains more sugar per ounce than ice cream! It also contains artificial colorings and flavorings. Opt for plain whole-fat grass-fed yogurt from A2 protein cows. For an even better option, try whole-fat kefir from grass-fed cows, sheep, or goats. 6. Soy protein Soy protein is a cheap, heavily processed protein found in many foods. It negatively affects your gut and liver. Opt for whole protein sources such as meat, eggs, fish, and seafood. 7. Modified starches Starches are chains of sugars, often used as fillers. Starches cause a more significant spike in blood sugar than sugar! Consume natural starch from butternut squash, beets, plantains, and purple potatoes.

ZERO Sugar Foods Hide TONS of Sugar

7/20/2024
Today, I’m going to tell you the truth about sugar and the effects of sugar. Doctors and large agencies like the Sugar Association have recently denied that sugar consumption could be dangerous for your health or that it could have any implications for your cardiovascular system. A similar tactic has been used by tobacco companies before they admitted that cigarettes were deadly. The average person consumes 23 teaspoons of sugar daily, but could they also be consuming hidden sugars? Hidden sugars are found in products that claim to contain zero sugars. Many ultra-processed foods, such as chips, Cheez-Its, and Goldfish, contain no sugar but are full of starches. Starches have a higher glycemic index than sugar, so they can cause a more significant blood sugar spike. Heavily processed starches are not like the starch you’d find in a potato or rice. Starches like maltodextrin, modified food starch, or modified corn starch can harm your blood sugar and health. If you include starch in a person’s daily sugar consumption, the average person consumes around 75 teaspoons of sugar each day! High-sugar diets cause you to deplete your nutrient stores until they are gone. Sugar also causes oxidative damage without the antioxidants to protect you, ultimately leading to chronic conditions, including diabetes, Alzheimer’s, inflammation, and skin problems. Processed foods are often fortified because they are so devoid of nutrients. Synthetic vitamins sprayed onto processed foods are not an alternative to whole foods! Stop eating sugar and eliminate starches from your diet. This can reverse the cycle of disease, lower blood sugar, and reverse a fatty liver. Your body will also be able to burn its own fat through ketosis. Ketones are a much better fuel for the heart than glucose.

What Happens if You STOP Using Your Cell Phone Before Bed for 14 Days

7/19/2024
Let's talk about how to fix your sleep. The majority of the population uses their phones before bed. Cell phones and other mobile devices expose you to blue light, which powerfully suppresses melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep. If your melatonin is too low, you’ll have difficulty getting to sleep. Just a minute and a half of blue light exposure before bed can reduce melatonin. Blue light blockers or blue light glasses can help reduce blue light exposure. EMF stands for electromagnetic fields. It is invisible radiation that affects the whole body. It damages communication signals within the cells and may increase the risk of cancer. Trifield measures electromagnetic fields and radio frequencies. It can be helpful to use this device to measure in the areas where you spend a lot of time. EMF exposure can affect your sleep quality and how deep you sleep. This will affect how you feel the next day. Alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine interfere with melatonin. Stress before bed and temperatures above 75 degrees Fahrenheit can also affect sleep quality. Poor sleep can affect your energy level, productivity, cognitive function, focus, concentration, and creativity. Surprisingly, poor sleep can cause blood sugar problems and increase your risk for type 2 diabetes, dementia, and depression. If you want to improve sleep quality, try using blue light blockers that work and talk on speakerphone. 10% OFF TriField EMF Meter Here: 🛒 https://drbrg.co/TriField-EMF-Meter - (10% Discount will be applied after you add to cart) Blue Light Filter and Eye Protection Software Link: 🛒 https://drbrg.co/Iristech-bluelightfilter Blue Light Filter Glasses: 🛒 https://drbrg.co/Amber-Lense-Safety-Glasses

How Grocery Stores TRICK US!!

7/17/2024
Today, I’m going to tell you how supermarkets get you to spend more money and control your food shopping experience. The majority of grocery store profits are not from markups on products! Around 50% to 75% of grocery store profit is from real estate, known as slotting fees. Food companies or brands spend money to have their products placed in prime locations in the grocery store. Companies want their products in “the golden zone,” right at your eye level. This can lead to 8 times more product sales! Grocery stores use numerous marketing tactics to control your food shopping experience, such as manipulating grocery store layout, artificial smells, and floor texture to slow you down. Supermarkets will place high-priced items near low-priced items and use color marketing tactics to their advantage. They also use social proof, such as retail tricks like “best seller” or “customer favorite,” to boost sales. The cereal aisle is the most profitable aisle! Around 16% of the total sales of a grocery store are purchased from the front of the store! It’s no coincidence that candy lines the checkout aisle. Labels are also very tricky, and similar marketing tactics are employed! Just because a product is labeled “natural” or “organic” doesn’t mean it’s not filled with sugar and starch. To combat these supermarket tactics, avoid grocery shopping with kids or if you’re hungry and tired. Write a list and stick to it! Shop the perimeter of the grocery store, and don’t go into the junk food aisles.

VITAMIN D IS WORTHLESS

7/15/2024
Today, I’m going to share some important information about vitamin D. The VITAL study, which involved 26,000 people, concluded that vitamin D supplementation is essentially worthless. The study found that vitamin D supplementation did not reduce the risk of cancer, major cardiovascular events, stroke, or cardiovascular death. In this study, they used the same trial protocols used in drug trials. One group received vitamin D, and the other received a placebo. We naturally have vitamin D in our systems from our diet and the sun, but no baseline vitamin D was determined in this study. Everyone in the study, including the placebo group, was permitted to take up to 800 IU of vitamin D per day. Furthermore, the VITAL study measured vitamin D in the blood, which is the inactive form. This is the reservoir of vitamin D that supports the skeletal system and calcium regulation, but this was not tested for. Vitamin D is involved in another system that supports the immune system, prevents cancer, is anti-inflammatory, prevents diabetes, and prevents dementia. The active form of vitamin D found in the cells is not measurable in the blood. The VITAL study claimed to give the study group a high dose of vitamin D, but they only used 2,000 IU! Dr. Hollis mentions a Townsend letter that references 6 papers that show the promising benefits of vitamin D: • Decreases autoimmune disease by 22% • Decreases the incidence of advanced cancer • The more vitamin D in your blood, the lower the risk of cancer • Reduces autism • Reduces asthma • Decreases adverse outcomes in pregnancy Although the VITAL study essentially deemed vitamin D as worthless, there’s plenty of research showing that vitamin D can reduce breast cancer, tooth decay, depression, skin disorders, prostate cancer, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and colon cancer. Research has also shown the surprising benefits of sunlight—the best source of vitamin D. Sun exposure can significantly reduce your risk of breast cancer, decrease blood pressure, and increase serotonin by up to 80%. DATA: https://www.townsendletter.com/e-lett...

Vitamin D Deficiency DESPITE Normal Blood Levels

7/14/2024
Please join me in welcoming Professor Bruce Hollis! Professor Hollis’ research has provided a new understanding of the importance of vitamin D and its full range of functions. Vitamin D has been understood as an essential nutrient for skeletal integrity and maintaining blood calcium levels. As microbiology and research developed, researchers found that many cells that had nothing to do with the skeleton could respond to vitamin D, including cancer and immune cells. Vitamin D exists in different forms inside the body. When you take a supplement or sunlight hits your skin, you’re dealing with the inactive form of vitamin D. It is then turned into a compound called 25-hydroxy vitamin D, the intermediate form of vitamin D that stays in the blood for weeks. This form is picked up in blood tests but isn’t easily accessible by the tissues that might need it. The final form of vitamin D is one of the most potent hormones, 125 di-hydroxy vitamin D. Vitamin D is converted into the active form in the kidney but can also be converted inside the cells. The vast majority of studies substantiating our information on vitamin D in the U.S. have several problems and have produced inaccurate results. There is also no agreed-upon range on “normal” vitamin D levels. Professor Hollis has conducted research and has seen significant results using vitamin D to prevent birth complications in women in Iran, in patients with low-grade prostate cancer, and in lactation. He also explains the importance of magnesium, a key cofactor for vitamin D metabolism. Professor Hollis wants people to understand that few physicians recommend or acknowledge the benefits of vitamin D because national organizations have yet to properly understand and recognize them.

The Most Powerful Group behind What You Eat

7/13/2024
Today, we're going to talk about the most powerful group in the food industry—the four companies control 90% of the grain trade. This includes products made from corn, soy, wheat, sugar, and rice, which comprise about 68% of the average person’s calories in the United States. The 4 following companies are the middleman between farmers and food corporations: 1. Archer Daniels Midland 2. Bunge 3. Cargill 4. Louis Dreyfus There is a lot of corruption in the food industry. Many “junk food brands” also own organic and natural brands, pet food, and vitamin and supplement companies. Starches, sugars, and seed oils are the main ingredients in almost all ultra-processed foods. The sugar is used to keep you wanting more, seed oils are repurposed waste, and starches are a chain of sugars used as a filler. Starches cause more of an insulin spike than sugar. Sugar has a glycemic index of 65 compared to 185 for maltodextrin! Fillers and starches can cause major health problems. The market follows the demand, so what you choose to buy is important! If you stop buying these products, you decrease the demand.

ICE CREAM Can Be HEALTHY?!

7/12/2024
Today, I’m going to tell you about the healthiest ice cream and the worst ice cream! The worst ice cream for your health is Ben & Jerry’s! It contains cream, liquid sugar, skim milk, more sugar, brown sugar, soybean oil, and tapioca flour. There are 49 carbs per serving, with 3 servings in a single pint! That’s around 35 teaspoons of sugar! Breyers ice cream contains 21 grams of carbs and 18 grams of sugar per serving. Breyers uses high fructose corn syrup instead of cane sugar. Breyers vanilla ice cream is a step up from the other flavors. It contains milk, cream, sugar, xanthan gum, and natural flavors. Breyers Carb Smart ice cream is their low-carb ice cream option. It contains maltitol syrup, which can cause gastrointestinal problems. It also contains soluble corn fiber and sucralose, a chlorine-based sweetener. Haagen-Dazs is a better option. It contains cream, skim milk, egg yolk, cane sugar, and natural flavoring with 14 teaspoons of sugar compared to 35. Keto ice cream contains cream, water, egg yolk, erythritol, strawberries, and soluble corn fiber. One pint contains 30 grams of sugar alcohol, which can create digestive issues. Rebel ice cream contains 0 grams of sugar per pint. It contains cream, erythritol, egg yolk, chicory root fiber, milk protein isolate, carob gum, and monk fruit. This is a good option! Simple Truth frozen dairy dessert doesn't contain 10% milkfat, so it cannot be called ice cream. It contains inulin, allulose, maltitol, erythritol, milk protein concentrate, coconut oil, guar gum, monk fruit, and stevia. Around 30% of this dessert is fiber, and it contains 39 grams of sugar alcohol! Don't choose an ice cream just because it says it’s keto-friendly. Check the ingredients! The healthiest ice cream is homemade ice cream. To make a truly keto-friendly ice cream you'll use allulose as the sweetener. Honey is also a good option, but it won’t be 100% keto-friendly. Homemade ice cream recipe: 1 cup organic grass-fed heavy cream 2 pasture-raised, organic egg yolks 3 tbsp powdered allulose or 1 tbsp honey 1 pinch of sea salt 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract ½ cup pecans or walnuts (optional) Directions: Blend the ingredients and freeze for 4 to 5 hours. Alternatively, you can add all ingredients to an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Enjoy your healthy ice cream!

The Worst Ingredient in the World: Interview with Dr. Chris Knobbe

7/8/2024
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Chris Knobbe! Dr. Knobbe is an ophthalmologist who has been working on seed oil research for the past 13 years. His research investigates industrial seed oils and their connection to obesity, diabetes, and almost all the chronic diseases that plague us today. Sugar consumption levels did not change much between 1922 and 1987; however, obesity increased by 600%! During this time frame, vegetable oil consumption went from 78 calories per person per day to 497 calories, respectively! The average American gets around ⅓ of their calories from seed oils. In 1890, diabetes was incredibly rare, affecting around 0.0028% of the population. By 2016, 13% of the population had diabetes. How do seed oils contribute to diabetes? Simply put, seed oils drive mitochondrial dysfunction, inhibiting the body's ability to burn fuel properly. Seed oils are rich in omega-6 fatty acids that accumulate in our body fat, cell membranes, and mitochondrial membranes. These polyunsaturated fats cause oxidation and inflammation in the body. They are also nutrient deficient. When you consume nutrient-deficient foods like seed oils or sugar, your body has to pull from nutrient reserves, creating deficiencies. Cottonseed oil was the first seed oil introduced into the food supply. It was initially manufactured as machine oil and lamp oil. It was also used as fertilizer and cattle feed. The goal was to make money and outsell butter and lard, and the manufacturers were very successful. By 2010, the average American consumed 80 grams of seed oils daily. One of the easiest ways to eliminate seed oils from your diet is to stop purchasing food with a label! Focus on whole foods like meat, eggs, dairy, and produce, and avoid processed foods.

7 Stupid Health Mistakes

7/7/2024
1. Accepting the wrong health advice as fact Just because someone is a doctor doesn’t mean you should trust them blindly. 2. Depending on protein powder for protein Protein powder is incomplete compared to animal protein. It doesn’t offer the vitamins and minerals needed to stay healthy. 3. Treating symptoms and ignoring the cause This is the main problem with the medical system. Healthcare practitioners prescribe medication to fix a problem instead of addressing the root cause. This is especially problematic when treating chronic disease because if you get off of the medication, the problem does not go away. 4. Focusing on salt reduction to reduce high blood pressure Instead of focusing on salt reduction, which will cause weakness and other problems, focus on increasing potassium. Potassium keeps your arteries healthy and flexible. 5. Choosing unsaturated fats over saturated fats Unsaturated fats like seed oils are highly refined and are in almost every ultra-processed food. Avoid them! 6. Avoiding red meat Humans have been eating red meat throughout history. It’s rich in vitamins and minerals and should be included in a healthy diet. 7. Only reading nutrition labels Nutrition facts can be confusing and misleading. You have to read the ingredients! Look for sugar, hidden sugars, seed oils, and starches. Starches are worse on your blood sugar than actual sugar. Many products that contain starches have 0 sugars listed in the nutrition facts.

Dry Fasting Causes 3X More Fat Loss

7/6/2024
Today, I’m going to share some of the amazing benefits of dry fasting and water fasting. There are over 50 genes that protect us from famine and drought and produce many health benefits. Fasting can help you lose weight, burn fat, and live longer. It helps improve cardiovascular health and can improve your blood sugars. A study involving birds compared birds who ate food and drank water, birds who only drank water, and birds who were essentially dry fasting as they flew across the desert. The group of dry-fasting birds generated 6 times more water than the group of birds that drank water! The dry-fasting birds also burned more fat. When fat is burned with oxygen from the air, it turns into water. The idea that we need massive amounts of water was developed from a campaign that terrified us of dehydration! You don’t need to overdo it with water; you just need to drink when you’re thirsty. Dry fasting is a useful tool for weight loss, but you want to ensure you do it correctly for the most fasting benefits. Follow a low-carb diet for a while before trying dry fasting. Once your body is adapted to fat burning, you’ll find that fasting is much easier. Try water fasting before attempting dry fasting. If you’re water fasting, you can consume water, electrolytes, supplements, and sea salt. If you’re dry fasting, you don’t consume anything. One day of dry fasting is equal to three days of water fasting! Dry fasting turns off digestion and allows the kidneys time to rest, allowing your body to switch into repair mode. After your fast, begin eating gradually. Kefir and bone broth are good choices to break your fast.

I Had NO Idea This Spiked Blood Sugar

7/5/2024
Justin Richard has collected a wealth of information using a continuous glucose monitor to experiment with different foods and their effect on his blood sugar. He explains how monitoring your glucose can help you stay healthy, too! Justin has a family history of type 2 diabetes, so he wanted to learn more about insulin resistance to prevent the same fate. He noticed his energy levels diminishing in his late 40s, especially after eating certain foods, so he began using a CGM (continuous glucose monitor) to investigate. When he first experimented with the CGM, Justin followed his typical diet, which consisted of many highly processed foods. These foods elevated his blood sugar, and it remained elevated for quite some time. Anytime you eat, especially carbs, your blood sugar rises. Depending on the type of food, you'll experience either a slight or dramatic rise. Justin was surprised by the effect white flour, bread, and whole wheat bread had on his blood sugar. He explains that there is a minimal difference between white bread and whole wheat products when it comes to blood sugar. Ezekiel bread has the lowest impact on Justin’s blood sugar. Justin explains that stress and lack of sleep significantly increase his fasting blood glucose. Eating close to bedtime leaves his blood sugar high for 6 to 7 hours. Justin recommends eating carbs with protein, fat, and fiber. This slows down the rate of digestion, lowering the blood sugar spike after eating. Apple cider vinegar mixed in water also slows digestion and significantly lowers a blood sugar spike. Justin suggests these tips to eliminate bad food choices and bad eating habits: 1. Don’t go to the grocery store hungry 2. Say no to junk food at the grocery store 3. Go for a walk after a large meal 4. Don’t consume sweets after a meal or when you wake up Justin uses a Signos continuous glucose monitoring device and highly recommends it!

REAL Reason You’re Not Losing Weight

7/1/2024
Today, I’m going to share some of the not-so-common reasons why you might be struggling to lose weight. Insulin is at the heart of a slow metabolism. Insulin is triggered by sugar and other foods that act as sugar in the body. Ultra-processed foods like chips and Cheez-Its have 0 sugars but contain carbs with very little fiber. They also contain starches—strings of sugars connected together. Starches act like sugar in the body, but worse! They are higher on the glycemic index, so they cause a higher blood sugar spike than sugar. Seed oils can also cause problems with insulin, affecting weight loss. Stress and lack of sleep can also affect weight loss. So, how do you fix an insulin problem? •Reduce sugar and starch consumption •Stop snacking •Exercise •Get more sleep It takes 24-48 hours to get into ketosis. If you have a glass of wine one night and then just one piece of bread the next, you are not going to be in ketosis. Sometimes, your eating plan is working, and you just don’t know it yet. If your hunger is gone and your energy levels are high, your diet is working; you just need to give it more time. Overtraining, poor sleep quality, and certain medications can also interfere with weight loss. The following natural solutions can help reduce insulin and boost weight loss: •Berberine •Apple cider vinegar (ACV)–1 tablespoon in a glass of water •Vitamin D–10,000 IU or a half hour of sunlight daily •Healthy Keto diet with intermittent fasting Once you’ve adjusted to 16-hour fasting and an 8-hour eating window, try switching to an 18-hour fasting window with a 6-hour eating window. You can even work up to 23 hours of fasting with a 1-hour eating window to boost weight loss. Dry fasting can also speed up weight loss. Don’t eat or drink anything from sunrise to sunset for 12 hours of dry fasting.

Milk Can Kill You?!

6/30/2024
Many people believe that raw milk is the number one cause of pathogens in dairy, but is it the raw milk itself causing the problem, or is it contaminated milk? It's important to remember that just because something is pasteurized doesn't automatically make it safe. It's also important to understand that E. coli is not just found in raw milk but can be present in pasteurized milk, too. In fact, we all have E. coli bacteria in our gut right now, which helps with digestion. The problem arises when certain strains of E. coli become pathogenic due to unsanitary conditions on the farm where the milk is produced. This is why knowing where you're getting your dairy products from is crucial, and ensuring that the farm follows strict hygiene protocols. If proper precautions are taken and the farm is clean, raw milk can be a beneficial option. One of the main benefits of consuming raw milk and raw milk cheese is that they contain enzymes that aid digestion. For example, lactase helps break down lactose (milk sugar) making it easier to digest for those intolerant to lactose. Raw dairy products also contain probiotic-friendly bacteria that support our immune system and gut health. Research has shown that children who consume raw milk have lower incidences of asthma, allergies, ear infections, and respiratory infections than those who consume pasteurized milk. Choosing high-quality raw dairy products from grass-fed cows also provides additional benefits, such as higher levels of essential minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which can aid in weight loss and have anti-inflammatory effects. Of course, it's important to research and purchase grass-fed raw dairy products from a reputable source that prioritizes cleanliness.

Eat This For HASHIMOTO'S (Slow Thyroid)

6/28/2024
Today, I’m going to tell you why two Brazil nuts each day may help with hypothyroid conditions. Most hypothyroid conditions are really Hashimoto’s disease, which is an autoimmune condition. 14 million people are diagnosed with Hashimoto’s each year in the US alone. Hashimoto’s puts you at risk for developing other types of autoimmune disease. Selenium is a trace mineral needed in very small amounts. It’s involved in over 25 different genes related to antioxidants. It also has potent anti-inflammatory effects. Selenium-rich foods include seafood, shellfish, organ meats, and Brazil nuts. Brazil nuts have the highest concentrations of selenium. Two Brazil nuts each day give you 200 mcg of selenium. Several randomized controlled trials found that selenium reduces the antibodies that attack the thyroid. When thyroid-stimulating hormone increases, it does not connect with the thyroid, leading to a hypothyroid condition. Selenium can also help with this condition. If you have Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, lots of hydrogen peroxide is generated. Selenium helps to neutralize hydrogen peroxide. Selenium helps control the T helper cells, which orchestrate your immune response. It also feeds the T-reg cells, which help prevent autoimmune diseases. Your brain, immune system, and reproductive system depend heavily on selenium, so sometimes, there’s not much left for the thyroid to function correctly. This may lead to Hashimoto’s symptoms, which include feeling tired, cold, weight gain, hair loss, and brittle hair. Try eating two to four Brazil nuts daily to support your thyroid gland's health. Don’t do more than that because it’s possible to overdo it with selenium. In addition to selenium, ensure you’re getting enough sunlight or consume high doses of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 can help regulate an overactive immune system.

6 Ways to RUIN Your Fasting Benefits

6/24/2024
In this podcast, I’m going to tell you how to fast correctly for the most fasting benefits without any negative side effects. Fasting CAN help you live longer! Fasting activates longevity genes, which reduce inflammation and help improve conditions like diabetes and prediabetes. They also protect the cells against disease. Avoid making these 6 fasting mistakes that can destroy your results. 1. Fasting for too long There are 2 types of fasting: intermittent fasting and prolonged fasting. Pay attention to how you feel when fasting. If you don't feel well, the fasting pattern is not right for you. You have to build up to a prolonged fast, and you don’t have to do OMAD to get fasting benefits. 2. Not getting enough dietary protein The type and amount of protein in your diet are very important. Animal protein is the best! Red meat, eggs, lamb, fish, seafood, and organic pasture-raised chicken are the best sources of dietary protein. When you do OMAD, your body becomes more efficient, and the requirement for protein decreases. 3. Avoiding cholesterol You need cholesterol, especially when fasting.

6 DEVASTATING Vitamin Deficiencies

6/23/2024
Today, we’ll discuss the importance of nutritional deficiencies. In modern medicine, many health problems are labeled “idiopathic” when they actually stem from nutritional deficiency. These 6 devastating health conditions can be the result of nutritional deficiencies. 1. Neurasthenia This is a condition in which your nervous system and brain are depleted, causing fatigue and mood problems. Vitamin B3 in the form of niacin can help with this problem. Try taking 500 mg for 3 days, gradually increasing to 1000 mg daily. Also, make sure you follow a healthy diet! 2. Tourette syndrome Tourette syndrome is characterized by sudden involuntary movements and verbal outbursts. It may also be the result of a vitamin B3 deficiency. Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, is a potential solution for Tourette syndrome symptoms. Try taking 500 to 1000 mg of niacinamide per day. 3. Persecutory delusions Persecutory delusions consist of various mental symptoms caused by a nutritional deficiency. Feeling that you will be harmed or mistreated, apathy, disorganized thoughts, lack of clarity, lack of focus, and hallucinations are the most common symptoms of this condition. Persecutory delusions may be caused by a vitamin B12 deficiency. 4. Restless legs syndrome This condition is characterized by the urge to move your legs, especially when sleeping. This is either caused by a vitamin B1 deficiency or an iron deficiency. If you have an iron deficiency, your palms, inner eyelids, and nail beds will likely be pale. 5. Panic, anxiety, worry These symptoms are typically worse when you’re going to bed. Constant panic, anxiety, and worry are often caused by a vitamin B1 deficiency, which is usually caused by consuming too many carbs. 6. Sensation of impending doom This is a mental problem that makes you feel like something bad is going to happen. It can be caused by a vitamin D3 deficiency. Try taking 20,000 IU of vitamin D3 every day for a few months.

Skin issues 7. Low back pain or muscle pain Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for overall health. It’s essential to make sure you’re getting enough. Unless you’re taking vitamin D or are getting plenty of sunshine every 24 hours—you’re likely vitamin D deficient. We also have to consider the factors that hinder vitamin D levels, such as: • Obesity • Insulin resistance • Diabetes • Lack of sun exposure • Lack of vitamin D in the diet • Aging Consider taking 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily. If you’re worried about vitamin D toxicity, keep in mind that if you go out in the sun for only 30 to 45 minutes, you’re getting about 20,000 IU of vitamin D, so 10,000 IU is not much for your body to handle. You should also get plenty of magnesium, zinc, vitamin K2, and boron when you take vitamin D.
