Today I'm talking about an interesting industry. I'm talking about personal training. And I got the idea because I threw up a reel on social media and I had some interesting conversations. 

I like to have these conversations just to see what people think and a lot of people haven't really thought about it. But the fact of the matter is that personal training is a failing industry. 

And I give reasons why and we'll talk about it throughout the show. But some people were offended, of course, and some people didn't really believe it, and then others were in agreement. And that's okay. 

Everyone's allowed to share their own opinion. Everyone is allowed and should have their own opinion. So I'm going to tell you my angle and what I believe is going to be the future of personal training and why it doesn't work for either side, the trainer or the individual. And then what you can do instead.

We’re got another new show coming at you this week and we’re talking about hypnosis.

We’re changing this show up just a bit, and combing two guest interviews from Dr. Anbar and Mandy Barbee.

We thought it would be fun to combine two similar topics as we talk about healing through hypnosis.

Mandy Barbee, MA Economics & CCHT, founder of Palladium Mind, is a transformation and healing expert who has helped hundreds of clients across the globe to overcome anxiousness and thrive in business, health, and life.

Ran D. Anbar, MD, FAAP, is board certified in both pediatric pulmonology and general pediatrics, offering hypnosis and counseling services at Center Point Medicine in La Jolla, California, and Syracuse, New York. Dr. Anbar is also a past president, fellow and approved consultant of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. 

And these guests are the perfect guys to bring that all together.

Today's show is all about the giant controversy of electric cars. Is this something that we should even be talking about? Yes, it is. Because we got to raise awareness around what's going on in the world today and how there is so much segregation. We got to come together. We have to stop the madness. 

It is absolutely bonkers how over the last couple of years, I censor most of my words on social media because they shadow ban everything if you bring up the word COVID. But it's the last couple COVID years that's created such separation sets, such segregation, it's absolutely madness and it has to end. I'm telling you, people are allowed to have different opinions. They're allowed to have different ideas. They're allowed to take different actions. We're allowed to create the life of our own personal dreams. And that should be without the cost of disapproving parents, friends, family, neighbors or viewers. Who cares what they think, you gotta do what's right for you.

Today I'm talking about the adventures of a first time beekeeper. And guess who that beekeeper is? It's me. I always wanted bees, and I don't even know why. But this year I took the leap and started my own bee hive. I was going to say beekeeping business... Not really. It's just a hobby. But I got my own bees.

There's a whole lot to do with getting honey. I always wanted my own honey, and I wanted my own bees. And I made that happen this year. And I'm getting through it. I feel like the more you learn about bees, the less you know, it is entirely complex. I'm going to share my experience with you as a first time beekeeper.

When it comes to macronutrients it always interests how most people are obsessed with one of the macronutrients. You’ll often hear someone say, “I need to get protein, I don’t have enough protein, where do you get your protein from?”

Then you have the fats people won’t touch because they think fats, regardless of what kind will actually make them gain weight (which certainly isn’t the case as you’ll read in the fats section below).

And then there’s the carbs people who are afraid of them, heard bad things about them, won’t touch them, try every carb depletion diet there is and wonder why they don’t have any energy throughout the day.

I should mention I’m not against any type of eating, as you’ll read shortly, I teach this way because I live this way and I feel that everyone should do what’s best for them.

However I also feel people remove important nutrients from their diet because of misinformation, lack of information or because a celebrity tried it to lose weight or because the local news did a story on it and it looked like a great idea.

Let me explain the balance of macronutrients that I like to live by.

The 4 macronutrients include: healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, protein and what we call the hidden macronutrients which are antioxidants/fibre.

It’s my belief that you need every macronutrient to live a healthy lifestyle and to have a well rounded balanced nutritional intake. You’ll notice each macronutrient has a different reason to consume it with various health benefits.

We are well aware there are many different philosophies when it comes to nutrition and food consumption. I teach how I live, and as I’ve progressed over the years, with improved digestion, more energy and feeling fantastic even after my age continues to go up (unfortunately), I’m feeling better and better as I continue to live this way.

And to each their own, there shouldn’t be one way to learn, one way to eat or one way to live. Everyone has to do what’s best for them. Not everyone is going to live in one single cookie cutter format of eating.

However I can tell you that over the years I’ve seen incredible results from teaching this way, which reinforces that I’m on the right track, which inspires me to continue down this path and continue to teach more people how to live a healthy lifestyle in this manner.
