This show is a bunch of little snippets, so if you guys aren’t quite familiar with us on social media, that’s what we do. We’re all over social media. We do lives, we do reels, we do stories, we do posts, and we’ve been doing that for years. That’s kind of how we have grown our business, fortunately, and Reels is kind of the thing right now.

Everyone’s doing reels, so we got to do reels too. So obviously how social media works, they push the algorithms to do the kind of things that they want you to do for whatever reason. I think honestly tiktok’s blown up, so everyone’s kind of copying.

But at any rate, what I’ve done here is, we’ve put together 30 to 60 second clips we grabbed them from social media and we threw them together in a show. I think they’re pretty good clips. You may disagree, but I thought, why not throw those together in a show podcast audio format only so you guys can listen.

So you’re going to hear a bunch of different clips and they’ll be splitters in between, so you’ll know that there’s different topics. But my take on random topics that are going on, not just health and wellness, but around the world as well, because some things just don’t make sense. At any rate, I hope you enjoy!

Instead of focusing on ensuring cleaner and more regulated products for the public's well-being, he speculates that larger control and influence, coupled with the pressure exerted by the pharmaceutical industry, may be the underlying driving forces. The potential loss of access to supplements and other health products that have positively impacted the lives of many deeply troubles Drew, who believes that this move could severely limit consumer choice and ultimately harm personal health.

With heartfelt sincerity, Drew shares his personal experiences and the testimonials he receives regularly, attesting to the positive impact his supplements and educational content have had on people's lives. The possibility of losing the ability to provide such support weighs heavily on him, and he questions whether this type of intervention aligns with the principles of a free country.

As the episode unfolds, Drew highlights the immense efforts he and his family have dedicated to building their business and making a difference in the lives of others. However, the threat of the proposed bill jeopardizes their livelihood and prompts them to contemplate extreme measures, such as leaving the country to start anew. The urgency of the situation fuels their determination to take action and fight for their rights, as well as the rights of other small businesses in similar predicaments.

Drawing upon the strength of community and the power of collective action, Drew urges listeners to join the cause. He firmly believes in the strength of numbers and encourages individuals to use their voices, whether by making phone calls, writing letters, or sharing informational flyers. Every act, no matter how small, could contribute to making a difference and protecting businesses like his that have positively impacted the lives of many.

In this emotionally charged episode, Drew emphasizes the significance of taking a stand, even if it means facing challenges and uncertainties. With unwavering determination, he asserts that he will continue fighting for his family, their business, and the health and well-being of all those who have supported them throughout the years.

This show is a bunch of little snippets, so if you guys aren’t quite familiar with us on social media, that’s what we do. We’re all over social media. We do lives, we do reels, we do stories, we do posts, and we’ve been doing that for years. That’s kind of how we have grown our business, fortunately, and Reels is kind of the thing right now.

Everyone’s doing reels, so we got to do reels too. So obviously how social media works, they push the algorithms to do the kind of things that they want you to do for whatever reason. I think honestly tiktok’s blown up, so everyone’s kind of copying.

But at any rate, what I’ve done here is, we’ve put together 30 to 60 second clips we grabbed them from social media and we threw them together in a show. I think they’re pretty good clips. You may disagree, but I thought, why not throw those together in a show podcast audio format only so you guys can listen.

So you’re going to hear a bunch of different clips and they’ll be splitters in between, so you’ll know that there’s different topics. But my take on random topics that are going on, not just health and wellness, but around the world as well, because some things just don’t make sense. At any rate, I hope you enjoy!

Drew begins by expressing gratitude for the loyal listeners and the global reach of the show. He then explains that the episode's content was taken from one of his Facebook Live sessions, highlighting his recent acquisition of a new microphone for improved audio quality.

The majority of the show's audience consists of busy moms, and Drew addresses their common concern of not seeing desired fitness outcomes. He explains that emotional investment is crucial for achieving results, and one key factor influencing emotional investment is financial investment. Drew emphasizes that the abundance of free fitness content online often leads people to undervalue it. Many individuals have only dabbled in fitness, trying occasional workouts or seeking advice from friends and family, without committing to a structured program or hiring a coach.

Drew emphasizes the importance of commitment and investment in achieving fitness goals. He recounts personal experiences where he provided programs to friends and family at no cost, resulting in little effort and zero results due to the lack of financial and emotional investment. Drawing parallels to top athletes, successful businesspeople, and skilled speakers, Drew highlights that the best performers in any field have coaches guiding and supporting them. He introduces the concept of "leveling up," where increased investment correlates with greater results and improvement.

In closing, Drew encourages listeners to engage with the show's content and visit the Facebook page to express their appreciation. Exploring Mind and Body promises an insightful and engaging discussion on what it takes to elevate one's fitness game and overcome the challenges faced by busy moms.

A few decades after Max J. Friedman's parents died, his grandson asked to know more about Friedman’s parents, a pair of Holocaust survivors who met in a Swedish refugee camp and came to America to start over. Friedman realized he knew very little of who his parents really were, especially about their lives before they met one another. They never spoke of their lives before the Holocaust and very little even about the Holocaust years. He was determined to find out and ended up discovering, after a five-year, multi-nation search, who they really were – and who he had become as a result.

“My parents had a marriage that existed out of death and despair,” says Max Friedman, 72, a resident of Larchmont, New York, and the author of Painful Joy: A Holocaust Family Memoir.

“They were each married when World War II broke out in Poland. Their entire families were murdered, including my mom’s first husband and my father’s first wife, and their two young daughters. My parents found each other after they had lost everything – but all was not love and happiness for them as they struggled to move beyond their lives as victims.”

World War II killed, injured, displaced, and destroyed well over 100 million people, including the lives of six million Jews during the Holocaust. But the suffering for those Holocaust survivors did not end with the war’s conclusion nor did it evade the next generation. Friedman, too, is a survivor, and his book reveals a powerful, poignant, and insightful story.
 
“This book is about two people who survive the unsurvivable and then, wounded in too many ways, find love, but not redemption, discover hope, but not without suffering greatly, and search for peace, but too often in all the wrong places,” says Friedman. “It seeks to unravel their lives and answer questions: What were their lives like before the Holocaust? Who and what could they have become? How indeed did they survive when so few came out the other side? These universal questions rarely have simple answers, if any at all. Painful Joy explores what was and what might have been and in so doing, seeks to restore the humanity of those who lost too much to bear.”

Painful Joy represents five years of intensive research in the U.S., Poland, Sweden, Israel and Germany, seeking to unearth the real-life stories of two people in order to discover their roots, recreate their lives and times and uncover both their remarkable journeys and painful secrets. Part memoir, part genealogical mystery and part history, the book is an absorbing, heartwarming and, at times, heartbreaking tale as readers accompany the author on his extraordinary exploration of the complicated relationship between two Holocaust survivors who meet in Sweden after their liberation from the notorious Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, relocated to America, and experience the "painful joy" of a love too often touched by death, pain, and anguish.

Today we're focusing on supplements to improve your performance in your workouts.

So this is going to be a fun one. We want to jump on here and offer some value and some information. So usually, I mean, in the in the more recent past, we did a bunch of exciting live product launches and we thought, why not do a show and just offer some information and instead of our getting excited about new product, instead we should talk about the products that we do have and how they can help in this particular way to improve your workout performance. Yes.

And a lot of times we get people who write in or ask us questions about, I have lots of your supplements, but how should I take them or when should I take them? So that's what we're going to go over today as well, is when to take your supplements and how how to take your supplements as well.

I'm going to talk about the history of gyms, which could be a bit boring for some, but I'm only going to touch on that for a moment.

I'm going to tell you why gyms don't conventionally work for the average person, although there is a very small amount of a very small percentage of people that a gym could actually work for.

 And then I'm going to tell you what you need instead to see the results you're looking for.

Today we're talking about how to find time to work out. I know this is a burning question. We hear it all the time. This is actually one of the biggest objections when it comes to working out.

I'm going to teach you, or at least give you some new ideas, and we're going to have a great conversation around making fitness a priority, not spending hours in the gym.

Because nobody wants to do that anyways, unless maybe you're a bodybuilder or something, but I'm certainly not. At any rate, we got so much coming up all about how to see results and not spend hours in the gym.

Most people don’t consider the health benefits when it comes to veggies, which is exactly what this category is. Just before this section I did talk about vegetables but let’s offer a slightly different angle to help you understand the importance here.

The reason we call it the forgotten macronutrient is because many people actually and literally forget about it. What’s for dinner, ‘steak and potatoes’. What about a roast, or even ‘fried chicken’, and how about a ‘fish and chips’.

Those are all staples in the SAD (Standard (North) American Diet). When is veggies listed, almost never likely because it makes kids and adults skin crawl all the same

Most likely because many didn’t grow up with veggies being a staple in their diet. Most people don’t know how to buy, prepare, or even store vegetables. Lucky for you, if you didn’t learn that growing up, you’ll be going through this program to teach you exactly that.

As of more recently a plant based diet has been gaining positive exposure and momentum in the field of health. It’s hard to pass by all the documented research, scientific evidence and case studies especially those that are now medication free after living a mostly plant based diet.

No it’s not for everyone, and even though I live a plant based diet I still enjoy meat or animal products once in awhile. Which is why you’ll see meat scattered throughout the meal plan. Not nearly as much as most would like. But remember to come in with an open and see what happens.

Some people have never even considered less meat in the diet. And some people have never even tried a supper meal without meat. My reply to that is, how do you know how you’ll feel without having meat in your diet if you never try?

You may just feel better than you ever have! But let me come back to meat in that ‘protein section’.

In my opinion most veggies are good for you. Of course we could talk most about spraying veggies with chemicals and growing specific seeds which I briefly mentioned in the GMO section. Which I recommend you stay away, like soy and corn.

After we eliminate GMO foods, the next step you may consider is eating organic fruits and veggies. Now let me mention I understand the health benefits of buying organic, but I also understand not everyone can buy organic all the time.

For those people that want to try some organic food to get started I’d recommend buying organic when it comes to the dirty dozen. What are the dirty dozen, they are the most heavily sprayed fruits and vegetables.

Protein is probably the most difficult macronutrient to discuss simply because we all grew up a certain way and to try and change the thought process is extremely difficult.

I’m not trying to change your thought process here, more so, I’m trying to show you that it doesn’t always have to be a certain way simply because that’s what you know.

We can get protein from different sources other than from meat or animal sources. But first let me explain the levels of protein and how I suggest we choose.

When it comes to most food, I like to take the utilization approach. So when it comes to these foods let’s talk about how our bodies process them.
In this order I’d suggest considering what ‘proteins’ you’ll add to each meal to make sure you have a complete macronutrients profile.


Eggs
Fish
Chicken
Turkey
Red Meat

 

Ok so from the list above we can see how I suggest we make our choices and in this case that’s from top to bottom and here is why.

Eggs, especially egg whites, process very quickly in the body which is a good thing. I know it may sound like I’m contradicting myself because I just talked about how we want slow digesting carbs in the last section. But carbs and proteins digest differently.

You want protein that is easier to digest but carbs that have fibre to slow digestion which actually helps with the entire process. If everything processes too quickly (like a sugar) then we don’t let our intestines, stomach acid and internal organs do their job.

Let’s say for example you have a meat (quick digesting), washed down with a glass of milk (again quick digestion) with a sweet potato which we now know is a simple or quick digesting carb, then we miss out on many different stages that the body can help with to improve digestion. This is a big issue with how we eat and how we live.

On top of that, in the evening we usually have this giant meal that isn’t easy to digest and we sit and watch tv the rest of the night. Instead of going for an evening walk to help that food digest in your body. And don’t get me started on alcohol right after a meal like that, right before bed no less and we wonder why we can’t sleep at night.

Back to the topic at hand. We have eggs at the top of the list, then a close second is fish. Remember that if you’re going to have fish, I’d suggest buying wild and avoiding farmed fish at all costs. Don’t eat fish from a can and make sure you’re taking your chlorella tabs before and or after any time you eat fish.

Chicken and turkey are also closely linked, have similar properties and are easier to digest which is why you’ll see this in the meal plan as well.

And finally growing up in Alberta, Canada it’s difficult to say, eat less red meat. But the truth is, it’s often found hard to digest, not because of the meal alone, but because of the type of meat, the size, how frequently it’s consumed and what is eaten with it

So if you’re going to have a steak try to find grass fed; enjoy a sweet potato instead of a white potato and have a good portion of veggies with. Make sure the veggies take up more of the plate than any other nutrient and try not marinate that steak in toxic flavours or sauces.

You can have a clean healthy steak once in a while and not feel guilty about it. And that’s now.

Plant Based Protein

Many people don’t know that you can get enough protein from plants. That goes back to how earlier I talked about when asked ‘what’s for dinner?’ The answer was often meat, like, ‘roast is for dinner’, for example.

All it is, is misinformation, it’s the simple fact that we’ve been misinformed but there’s nothing wrong with that. No one should feel guilty, I’m not trying to ridicule anyone regardless of beliefs, understanding or how most of us were raised in North America.

The health industry is often changing, we find new science, research and case studies all the time. Personally I think this is exciting! If nothing ever changed I’d say it would be a pretty boring industry to be in.

Many people live very healthy lives and haven’t touched meat in years. But where do they get their protein from? This question comes up more than I could explain. Let’s take Spirulina for example. Did you know spirulina has more protein than steak – cup for cup?

Crazy right?! How could a little tab of algae (more on this later) contain that much protein? I mean sure, most people aren’t going to have a cup of spirulina tabs or powder but I’m just using it as an example to let you know there are plenty of plants jam packed with protein.

Take hemp seeds for example, these little seeds are a complete protein which means they contain all of the amino acids that you would find in meat.

Hemp seeds are also high in healthy fats which means it could double as a protein and fat at the same time.

Then we have quinoa, which is in the same superfood category as hemp seeds. Quinoa is also a complete protein and a complex carb which means you get a good amount of both macronutrients (carbs and protein) by enjoying a serving of quinoa.

Then we could look at the combination of celery and cucumber, which also makes a complete protein and is detoxing as well. And then there’s the example of beans and rice. Try whole grain rice with the bean combination to make a complete protein.
The list goes on, there are many examples I can come up with to show you that you can get plenty of protein from plants alone. Am I saying you’ll get enough protein from having a green smoothie once a day?

No I’m not, I believe in balance, which is why I’m talking about all the macronutrients here. Enjoy a green smoothie in the morning like we recommend. Maybe you’ll have spirulina tabs throughout the day.

And why not enjoy a quinoa salad, with spinach, hemp seeds, avocado and your favourite veggies like the monster salad listed below.

And what about a protein smoothie once a day, that’s also jam packed with nutrients to improve digestion, increase energy and give you a protein boost that so many people are worried about?

Now that’s a great way to get all your nutrients and have a balance of macronutrients. I really feel like we miss out on vital nutrients (vitamins and minerals) our bodies need by not consuming all the macronutrients as often as possible in a single meal.

So what happens if we don’t get all the macronutrients and we miss out on vitamins our bodies need.

We could be craving throughout the day which is why we head straight to the pantry after work (because our body lacks nutrients),
We could run into a health issue for lack of nutrients. For example a lack of iron could cause anemia, which isn’t a good thing. Side note, algae has tons of iron if this is an issue for you.


And finally we’re forced to use pharmaceuticals which is many cases cause side effects which only equals more meds.

Carbohydrates often get a bad wrap because of the new diets out there where people try to avoid carbs all together. It’s extremely difficult to avoid carbs all together. Which makes restrictive diets that request few or no carbs at all seemingly impossible to follow.

Think about it, we have carbs in the morning for toast, oatmeal, french toast, or pancakes (which is usually created with a wheat product).

Then we often have a sandwich for lunch or a roll with a side salad. And it’s no different when it comes to supper. Which often includes pasta or pizza night, baked potatoes or another type of roll.

Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t do that. I’ll explain shortly that I believe carbs are a good thing if you pick the right ones and consume them in moderation.

You may have noticed as I explained the SAD includes carbs in every meal and not the best ones. We carb load almost every single day, and I didn’t even include fast food in that example.

It’s no one why as a society we’re overweight, we lack energy, we’re on multiple medications and on top of all that we in large part blame carbs because of it.

Carbs can actually be a good thing. They offer energy, they prevent you from being hungry and we know when we’re hungry we don’t make the best food choices. And they offer an abundance of vitamins and minerals as well.

Again, the problem is choosing the right type of carbs. So let’s talk about which ones those are, but first let’s talk about which to avoid.

Will eating fat make me fat? This question comes up quite frequently. The haunting fear that eating fats will put fat on your body. This myth simply isn’t true. I can assure you that eating fats will not make you fat!

There are a number of things that contribute to weight gain such as: eating low quality food like substances, overeating, lack of sleep and STRESS.

Eating proper portions of healthy fats will not cause weight gain.

In fact, healthy fats fuel our bodies and give us energy. Fats are one of the contributors to a well balanced whole foods diet along with plant based protein, healthy carbs and fiber.

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.

This show is a bunch of little snippets, so if you guys aren’t quite familiar with us on social media, that’s what we do. We’re all over social media. We do lives, we do reels, we do stories, we do posts, and we’ve been doing that for years. That’s kind of how we have grown our business, fortunately, and Reels is kind of the thing right now.

Everyone’s doing reels, so we got to do reels too. So obviously how social media works, they push the algorithms to do the kind of things that they want you to do for whatever reason. I think honestly tiktok’s blown up, so everyone’s kind of copying.

But at any rate, what I’ve done here is, we’ve put together 30 to 60 second clips we grabbed them from social media and we threw them together in a show. I think they’re pretty good clips. You may disagree, but I thought, why not throw those together in a show podcast audio format only so you guys can listen.

So you’re going to hear a bunch of different clips and they’ll be splitters in between, so you’ll know that there’s different topics. But my take on random topics that are going on, not just health and wellness, but around the world as well, because some things just don’t make sense. At any rate, I hope you enjoy!

In most cases we set goals without having a real plan only because we think we're supposed to. It's the New Year and we heard we're supposed to set goals, so we don't but don't exactly know how.

We need to start with achievable goals first and build a sustainable plan that will last, instead of jumping in with two feet having no idea why or what we're doing.

Working together is important, even if you're used to doing these things on your own. There's a reason this hasn't worked in the past, most likely because you've tried to do it on your own.

Find a community, find a support group and you'll quickly find out how important it is.

Consider other goals as well. In most cases people only set wellness goals, but what about financial for example, what about adventure. Do something you're not used to, think outside the box and you'll be all the better for it!
