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.

Isn't it crazy that we're even talking about this? But I mean how many times have we said that to ourselves?

In this clip I'm going to talk about some very difficult subjects. Most in which people shy away from.

They are too hard to think about, too hard to understand, even fathom.

Why could this be happening, who in their right mind would actually want this?

Is this actually even possible?

I'm also going to bring on some experts in their own rights to talk about their experiences, what has happened to them, how they see this all unfolding and what's happening right in front of our own eyes.

All in which most turn a blind eye too. We'd prefer to think everything is fine, everything will go back to 'normal' and nothing bad will happen to any of us.

This show will upset a lot of people I'm sure. But I'm not here to argue or debate. Everyone has the right to their own opinion, every one should have the right to voice the own opinion - something that the powers to be are trying very hard to take away.

And finally we should all have the right to our own choices over our own bodies, again which is being harder and harder to do in this world of madness.

Agree or disagree, I'm entitled to my own voice, just as you are.

Regardless, thank you for listening, and thank you for respecting my opinion whether you agree or not.

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.

It's back to school time which means it's time to get back on track!

As a nutrition and fitness company most people think our busiest time of year is in Jan, which isn't the case.

Our busiest time of year is Sept. And that's because of the long summers of BBQ, not working and eating whatever we like.

No judgement here, that's just how it works. Then when the kids go back to school, regular work hours come about and everyone is looking to get back into their routines, we hear from most sharing how little they did over the summer.

So it's time to get back on track and all that starts with a plan.

We need to decide what is that we want, then we plan on how we're going to do that.

Planning workouts is essential to getting back on track. And meal planning, along with grocery shopping, knowing what meals you're going to plan in advance is all so important.

If you need some help planning workouts and meals we can certainly help with this.

If you don't have a professional helping, there's nothing wrong with making your own.

It's the time it takes that deter most people from doing it themselves. So if you're not going to do it yourself or if you don't have time to do it, it would be a good idea to find a trusted professional.

Christal grew up in a small farming community in Southern Saskatchewan. As an avid athlete with her share of injuries, she had little assistance from the medical profession available to her in her small town so decided to study Athletic Therapy at Mount Royal College. She wanted not only to understand what was wrong and how to recover but how to prevent injuries in the first place.

Through college she was able to continue with her athletics; both as a competitor and as a therapist. She was a gold medalist Badminton player at MRC and she was able to be on the sidelines of many of her favorite sports (including football, hockey, baseball and volleyball) as well as sports she had little experience with (such as field hockey, basketball and judo) throughout university.

After completing her Athletic Therapy diploma from MRC and her Kinesiology degree at the U of C, she continued to work with hockey in both the Alberta Junior Hockey League, Heritage Junior B Hockey League and the Women’s Western Hockey League. She worked in private practice as an AT until requiring knee surgery (an injury sustained at playing hockey) which introduced her to the world of insurance where she worked for a number of years.

Working as a rehabilitation specialist she recognized a challenge in the insurance and medical fields. There was a group of people in pain for which there is no apparent reason discoverable in today's traditional diagnostic tests or imaging. According to medicine and the insurance world, nothing was wrong with them.

Christal had learned what she could in the insurance world and was anxious to get back into helping people directly in a clinical setting. After losing her mom to Cancer and her grandmother 6 months later, she learned life was just too short not to be doing what you were meant to do. But the question remained on how to help the population with unexplained pain – she needed to find a solution.

After research into various educational options she found osteopathic manual therapy. A method to understand in more detail the anatomy of the human body and how all parts were interrelated. A method to understand WHY people had pain. She started her osteopathic studies in 2006 at the Canadian College of Osteopathy Vancouver Campus (now called the Canadian School of Osteopathy Manual Practice). She returned to private practice in 2007.

Christal graduated after completing her thesis on vestibular disturbances in the post concussed active population. She continues to be a certified Athletic Therapist and has continued post graduate studies in endocranial spasm work, psycho-neuro-endocrine-immunology, emotional work within the fluids, mechanical link, neuro-kinetic therapy, and energetic work through the medicine wheel.

In January 2019 she opened Take Flight Osteopathic Wellness with the goal of bringing hope to people who feared they’d have to live with the pain for the rest of their lives.

Take Flights Mission is To help you, your performance and Life Take Flight.

It always strikes me as odd when you see someone working out like a bodybuilder who doesn't want to be a bodybuilder. If you want to look like a bodybuilder or if you want to compete in a fitness competition, sure you workout a certain way.
 
But if you want to look lean and strong, you work out differently. Or if you want to increase the strength of your heart, maybe you have heart Dis-Ease in your family. They you don't stand and lift heavy weights, you do more cardio exercises.
 
More weights and less reps = more mass. Less weight and more reps equal leaner muscles. The you have body weight exercises, yoga, pilates and more!
 
There's all kinds of different ways to be fit, health and active. Be sure you're choosing the right way that aligns with the body type you're looking for.

Hard gainers is a real thing, and it's a real struggle. Most people don't know about hard gainers because much of the world is surrounded by people trying to lose weight. So what's a hard gainer? It's someone who has trouble keeping weight on, including muscle mass. Particularly important to men, athletes but exclusively. Men and women in all walks of life struggle with being a hard gaining, but again are downplayed by so many trying to lose weight.

So when we talk about the struggles around gaining weight, most people shrug it off or don't think much of it. But it's a real problem. Calling someone 'fat' to an obese person, is no different than calling someone 'scrawny' to a skinny person. It's hurtful and can stay with people their entire lives. In this show we talk about hard gainers, what it's like to be this type of person and what you can do about it.

How to Beat the Heat is something we all consider during the hot summer months...or something we all should consider.

Sun burns are not just detrimental to our health in short term but in longer term as well.

It always surprises me when I see people flaunting their sun burns like it's something to be proud of.

What I'm most proud of is when I get through an entire summer without getting burned, now that's a real challenge!

Consider non toxic sunscreen and even wear long sleeves when it's extremely hot outside.

Dr. Aaron Hartman is a Board-Certified Family Medicine Practitioner and clinical researcher who advocates for and practices functional medicine, an integrative approach to conventional and alternative medicine. Aaron guides individuals to restore their health and hope, using science-backed solutions, so they can live the vibrant life they were made for.

Aaron’s own journey with Functional Medicine started with his first daughter, who he and his wife took in as a foster child, then adopted. Due to her cerebral palsy and countless dietary issues, the Hartmans went to specialist after specialist, but even as a physician, Dr. Hartman felt let down and confused. His daughter’s health struggles forced him to confront an uncomfortable realization: Our current healthcare system doesn’t have all the answers. Aaron’s wife, a brilliant--and very stubborn--occupational therapist refused to give up hope. She ultimately pointed him towards functional medicine, and their daughter thrived.

The human body is infinitely complex, and functional medicine caters to this complexity. Dr. Hartman listens to his patients’ whole health stories then helps them apply data-driven solutions to start healing. In short, he looks at clients’ home, environment, diet, daily habits, and health history, and then teaches solutions instead of just treating symptoms.

When it comes to reliability there is two forms I specifically address in this show.

Being reliable for yourself is the first one. So many people put themselves last and never consider running on an empty cup.

The more you have filled the more you can offer to others. But if you aren't reliable, if you never show up for yourself, then you don't have much to give.

It's important to show up for yourself. It could be a workout you are showing up for, it could be meal planning, etc.

Regardless of what it is, you need to show up for yourself. In fact, some people always show up for others but never for themselves.

And then there's the other kind of reliable when it comes to finding those people that are reliable, that are always there when they say they will.

We all know those types of people that are flakey and rarely show up when they say they will.

You know that type of person that says they'll come and everyone takes bets on that person showing up?

Don't be that person. Do what you say and say what you'll do.

It's important on many different levels to be someone that can be counted on to show up when it's expected.

There are tons and tons of Benefits to Cold Water Therapy.

In fact it's been shown beneficial to improve your healthy in numerous different ways.

I've done cold water challenges myself for 10 days, for 30 days, in the middle of summer, even in winter and through research and experience this is what I've found.

Cold water therapy is good to improve circulation, offering your body the ability to better be able to warm and cool itself.

Cold water therapy helps ignite your collagen in your face which could offer less wrinkles.

Considering a 3 min cold shower can improve your circulation, decrease pain caused by inflammation and even wake you up to start your day more efficiently like Tony Robbins.

There are many different forms of cold water therapy

You may consider starting with just 10 seconds. And working your way to a 30 second shower.

Those that are more extreme maybe sit in an ice bath for up to 15 minutes or even try a polar dip!

Again there is many different forms and many different benefits you can experience through cold water therapy.

Saving water may be of interest to you, less dry skin if you live in a dry climate or have hard water.

Regardless of what you think it's certainly worth trying out to see what benefits you may find from Cold Water Therapy.

It's challenging to live positive in chaos. I mean many people feel like the world is upside down, that their lives are. Many people only see chaos so how can we find the positives in a situation like this? Let's talk about it.

We have to understand our environment is either contributing to the chaos or bringing us back into a positive state of mind, positive state of being.

So surrounding yourselves with positive people is essential.

Paying attention to what you're watching, saying and thinking is also helpful.

Creating healthy habits and healthy routines is also important.

Exercise is the #1 way to reduce stress, so creating a healthy workout routine is important.

And food is no different, what we eat creates more stress or less stress.

So having an overall healthy lifestyle lifestyle is a great way to find positivity in chaos.

How to turn your wants into achievements is the burning question. I mean how do we go after what it is we really want, and why?

The very simple answer is motivation. People often tell me 'I lack motivation'. So how do we find this motivation?

How is it we can actually go after what we want and see results?

We need a system, we need accountability, we need to find a way to make it happen.

And throughout this show I explain exactly how you do that.

Decide what it is you want, no one can do this for you. After that you come up with a plan, a coach, some accountability.

Then you move into taking actions steps, rewards and celebrations all the way up until you turn your want into an achievement.

It's a dangerous mindset to be in the quick fix mind frame.

I recently heard someone say, you grow a business as quickly as possible so you call sell it because organic growth takes too long.

This is that instant results mind frame that I'm talking about.

When you're looking for instant you're often disappointed.

In most cases great results take time, effort and patience.

This could be true for fitness goals, nutrition, weight loss, etc.

It doesn't matter much what it is, patience matters. Putting in the work matters.

Being in it for the long haul and understanding these things take time.

Fats are either causing inflammation or preventing inflammation.

Especially when it comes to oils. There are many rancid oils on the shelves that actually cause inflammation.

Which includes trans fats which is more directly your deep fried foods, fries, wings, onion rings, etc.

It would be a very good idea to understand the chronic pain in your body stems from inflammation caused by low quality fats which include trans fat.

For a product to be labeled 'oilive oil' the actual quantity of oilive oil can and is over very low. I'm talking about 2,3 or 4%.

So what's in the rest of the 'olive oil'? Usually cheap, rancid and or low quality oils that act as fillers so the profit margins increase and companies and make more money off each sale.

MCT oil is basically extracted from coconut oil.

Within those extractions there are a number of different oils.

Which include, C6, C8, C10 and C12.

The most beneficial MCT oil is C8 which is Caprylic Acid. This is basically brain fuel. It helps with digestion, it gives you energy and it improves your cognitive function as well.

Regardless, we all have routines and specific ways we get up in the morning, go to work, drive home, etc.

Nelson Tressler is the Founder and CEO of IGotSmarter, a program created to support and motivate people to achieve their goals. For the past 25 years, goal achievement and personal development have been Nelson’s passion; but his true obsession was awakened several years ago as he began the development of IGotSmarter. 

 

The principles, philosophies, and accountability intricately built into every aspect of the App have not happened by chance. It is a program comprised of a lifetime of study and determination to succeed not only financially and professionally, but in every area of life. 

 

Nelson’s passion for helping others overcome obstacles in their way came about through the difficult circumstances of his childhood. His story reads like something out of a work of fiction, but it is Nelson’s reality. Rather than using his tragic story as an excuse, he has used it to motivate himself and to help others overcome their own struggles. 

 

One of his favorite quotes is, “Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.” It is his vision to make this world a better place one person and one inspiring goal at a time. He believes goals not only change the current generation, they also change the generations that follow.

I love tea, I always have. But I think I'm more in love with the health benefits than anything else.

Personally I enjoy a nice green tea in the morning. More recently I've been enjoying the combination of green tea and puh er tea because of the unlimited health benefits that combo has to offer.

Tea has been used for thousands of years to help many different issues in health and to improve healing.

Maybe that's what I enjoy most about it.

It's also important to understand there is a proper way to prepare tea which I feel gets lost in the shuffle.

Take green tea for example. You can actually steep it twice for example to get rid of 75% of the caffeine.

You also only want to steep it for around 3 mins, steeping for too long will cause it to be bitter.

And then you don't want to let the green tea to sit too long before you drink it.

I've found the longer it sits the more bitter it gets.

Those are just a few tips to enjoying a cup of green tea.

But tune in and learn and laugh and enjoy more benefits and conversation about tea!

It's important to understand how to read ingredients. We hear all the time how long it takes to grocery shop if you're always reading ingredients.

First of all, it's worth noting that once you start to recognize brand names and where to go in the grocery store, it'll take a much shorter time to go.

But if you look at the first few ingredients that'll give you a good inclination if it's a good product or not.

If the first 3 ingredients have sugar in them, put the product down and move on.

In the product has tons of ingredients, in most cases words that you're not able to read or pronounce. Put the product down and move on.

We should be able to easily understand exactly what's in each product that we're putting in your bodies.

Practice, read, have patience and before long you'll be a pro at reading ingredients!

Sugars all process a differently in our bodies.

We suggest avoiding refined white sugar as much as possible because it is synthetic. This means our bodies recognize it as a toxin and do not know how to process it. It’s stored in our body and leads to weight gain, aches and pains and all kinds of mayhem.

Refined Sugar is very harmful for our health. It’s very addicting which means it can cause withdrawals, headaches and highs and lows in energy levels.

Our bodies can recognize and process Natural occurring sugar like honey, maple syrup and fresh fruit.

This doesn’t mean we should have unlimited amounts of natural sugar. We still need to watch our intake but our bodies will know how to utilize it and it won’t cause nasty health problems.

Let's talk about Why New Years Resolutions Don't Work
 
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!

Even though the holidays is supposed to be the most joyous time of year, it can certainly be the most stressful. So we put together a check list for you to follow, to help you keep your stress levels low at this time of year.
 
 
Exercise is the #1 way to reduce stress!
 
Unfortunately it seems as though exercise is the first to go when we're stressed out. Do yourself a favour, get to exercising to prevent too much stress, and when that stress arrives, don't miss out on any of your workouts.
 
 
Breathing Exercises
 
This is another great way to reduce stress. There are many different ways to practice breathing. The easiest one is, breathe in for a count of 5, hold for a count of 5 and breathe out for a count of 5.
 
Try this cycle 10 times around and watch that stress melt away!
 
 
Reduce Alcohol Consumption
 
Easier said than done especially during the holidays. We're not saying don't drink at all. What we're saying is, you don't have to over indulge every night. You don't have to have an alcoholic beverage every time you watch a movie, wrap presents (or open them ;)), or every time you visit family.
 
Many people don't know alcohol contributes to stress, anxiety and depression. So skip the booze blues this year and try a different type of beverage.
 
 
Create Healthy Habits
 
More people than we know create unhealthy habits at this time of year. So why not flip the script and start creating healthy habits. It'll make starting out in the New Year that much easier!
 
Create healthy habits like some of the exercises on this list to reduce your holiday stress.
 
 
Add quality foods to your diet
 
I know that we'd rather not think about better nutrition at this time of the year. We want the appetizers and pie's and drinks. But we should really consider adding quality foods to our diet.
 
Quality foods will help reduce stress, they will help heal your body and they'll even put you in a better mood, especially when things are a bit more stressful during the holidays.

On this episode of Exploring Mind and Body we're going to talk about Self Care During the Holidays.

Self care during the holidays is so important. In fact it could be the most important time of the year.

We have appetizers, and family and finances, all in which could stress us out. So we have to continue to take care of ourselves especially at the most stressful time of year.

A. Believe that you're worth it

Believe that you're worth it because you are. You deserve to be strong and healthy all year long, especially at this time of year!

B. Affirmations

We love affirmations as constant reminders of who are, and or who you want to become. Help yourself have that belief in yourself by continually reminding yourself using affirmations.

C. Make a plan

If you fail to plan you plan to fail. Have a workout plan, have a nutrition plan, take all the thinking out of it. Make sure you have a plan that you can stick to and find a professional to do it for you if you're not sure how.

D. Make yourself a priority

Remember that you deserve this. So make yourself a priority. We make everyone else in our lives a priority and we put ourselves last. Put yourself at the top of the list and you'll have more to give.

E. Make time for yourself

We all have the same hours in the day, it's not that we don't have time, it's more so that we don't make the time it takes to get our workouts in, or to meal plan and prep.

Make that time because you deserve it!

Choosing Better Ingredients is a way of life, it really is. Choose better quality isn't just about ingredients, it's what you choose on a regular basis.

Let's take ingredients first. The better ingredients you put in your body, the better your body will feel, the better your body feels the more confidence you'll have. And the more confidence you have the better you'll be able to perform your day to day tasks.

Consider feeling energized, having mental clarity; how about being in more control of your mood and emotions.

It all starts with choosing better, for your body, for your life.

If you choose better quality ingredients, you tend to make better choices in your life.

Choose better to whom you hang out with, choose better to what you do with your personal time, choose a better environment.

Fermented foods is without question, one of the best ways to improve digestion.

Some of my favourite fermented foods include: Kombucha, Sauerkraut, Kimchi and Miso.

I choose to make homemade kombucha but there is some great local businesses that produce their own, which in my opinion would be better than a mass produced product.

If you are purchasing Sauerkraut make sure it's raw and needs to be stored in the fridge.

Kimchi is my favourite of all of these and again I choose to make my own. Pay attention to the store bought kimchi products, many are packed with toxins that won't do your digestive system any good.

And last on my list is Soy products. In most cases I choose to avoid soy. Unless they are fermented. You can find health benefits from both Miso and Tempeh.

All the best in your search for improving your digestion!

It's so important to understand what we put on our body ultimately goes in our bodies.

Our skin is our biggest organ and we need to treat it right. The problem is, no one wants to hear this information.

Who wants to spend extra money on products, and have to read all the ingredients each time you buy.

Not many, I mean I certainly don't. But it's necessary to know exactly what goes in your body, what it does to your body and it's affecting our health.

In this show I talk about a few things we should stay away from when it comes to cosmetics or the toxins in your bathroom.

I hope you enjoy the show and I hope it's eye opening to some.

You can find more details in my book called Detoxify Yourself which is what I'm referencing throughout this show.

Oscar Smith has a lifelong dedication to fitness as a lifestyle. Oscar has personally mastered multiple disciplines to develop a specialized training system for total body transformation. His fitness services are offered at his chic Tribeca personal training gym, O-D Studio. His level of experience and expertise has made him one of the most sought-out trainers in NYC.

With athletic experiences on his high school football and track and field teams, Smith went on to major in physical education and minor in business, and receive his master’s degree in kinesiology and biomechanics.


During college, he also become a level two all-around gymnast. With over 25 years of experience, Oscar’s notable accomplishments range in scope.

Oscar is a Certified Personal Trainer [ISSA-International Sports and
Science Association], Certified Flexibility Technician, Gymnastics Coach [USGF- United States Federation of Gymnastics], Kinesiology and Biomechanics Specialist (movement of the muscles and tendons), Senior Ocean Lifeguard and Ocean Rescuer (diver), USLA Competitor [United States Lifesaving Association], six-time tri-athlete (30-mile bike ride, six-mile run, one-mile swim), and a New York City Marathon participant. He was also a grade 3 ocean beach lifeguard and member of the lifeguard
completion team, travelling to compete in worldwide events.

Smith started his personal training gym, O-D Studio in 2003, before anyone knew what a personal training gym was. He had a simple vision: to create somewhere where people could work out with a one-on-one trainer, where people didn’t pay for the use of a building, but for the use of a trainer. What he didn’t realize in creating his vision is that his gym would come to attract celebrities, because they could work out without the prying

Jack Stafford is a British singer-songwriter renowned for his thought-provoking lyrics. He is on a mission to use his songs to serve others and help people overcome the manipulative, materialistic message that is distorting modern society. Jack’s new album Deeper is a series of self-help songs that will help people get perspective on the current Corona crisis. The songs are inspired by his own life experiences and mental struggles. Jack previously lived a toyboy lifestyle in Amsterdam, working as a copywriter, musician, and fashion designer. However, this led to burnout and breakdown, so Jack set off on a bicycle tour through 45 countries as a nomadic troubadour, playing over 700 house concerts in return for a place to sleep.

Jack grew through all these experiences, countless self-help books and podcasts, and Vipassana meditation. As a documentary songwriter and modern-day troubadour, he writes non-fictional songs with a goal of instructing, educating, or maintaining a historical record.

Jack lives in seclusion in southern Italy. When not making music, he is an Ayurvedic Practitioner, meditation teacher, Acroyoga dilettante, permaculture gardener, touring cyclist, founder of Copywriter Collective, student of metaphysics and Italian representative of The Aetherius Society.

My name is Caroline Collins, some may call me CC, and I originally am from the countryside of western Massachusetts.

After being physically attacked and fearing my life 10 years ago, I realized I knew nothing about how to use my body to protect myself. I sought after a martial art and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu found me. After completing my Master’s in Science Education, I moved out to California from Massachusetts to train with the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitor and world champion athlete, Cobrinha, and simultaneously start my career in my other passion: nutrition science education. My aim was to teach people how to live healthier and happier in their bodies through conscious existence and natural nutrition.

After five years of teaching, serving as a teaching fellow for the National Science Foundation, I left my job as the science department chair in LAUSD, to train and compete Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu full-time and to start a health food business that provides natural nutrition to athletes. That small business brought me to larger current business and the full-time athletic pursuit brought me to now, teaching fitness through applied, scientific, and strategic knowledge. I also design and create nutrition programs for clients, with various needs and lifestyles.

My goal is for my clients to feel beautiful and look beautiful with confidence, strength, and technique.

Along with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I have been training Capoeira for 6 years, an Afro-Brazilian Martial Arts. I also have trained Yoga for 17 years, Snowboarding for over 20 years, and just overall athlete.

Accomplishments:
World Ranked Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt

May times we don't consider what our personal environment is like. We don't consider cleaning it up, or we don't think about why our life feels like it's a disaster.

All the while, our desk is cluttered, our car had garbage on the floor, we don't have dedicated rooms to do anything.

In this show I talk about how to organize our life for success. How to do the little things that'll make a big difference.

What are we surrounding ourselves with, what do we see and hear. We are we hanging out with and how to make a change in our lives.

Few people think about actually finding success, in fact few plan for in. In this show I'd like to argue more people actually plan for failure instead of success. Many people are just trying to get by, or hang on. Instead of actually thriving. What does success look like to you?

How have you planned for it, how will you handle it? What steps have you taken to make sure you don't fall back to the same place that you were before you found success? In this show I bring up a topic that may not be thought of often. I hope it gives you a different perspective on how to hold on to that success and even find more!

He is the Founder of Ra Optics, a company that makes products to help people minimize the negative sides of our modern technologies and lifestyle so that they can fully enjoy their lives.

Matt’s passion for enlightening others came out of his own experience with health issues as a child. Since suffering from health issues as a child, he has since tested many allopathic drugs, “alternative” treatments, and diets, ultimately coming to find that the science of mitochondrial medicine is the first to have clearly proven that the cause of all “chronic” disease is mitochondrial dysfunction, the first cause of which is artificial light frequencies altering biologic cycles.

He is currently focused on research in the field of photobiology, the scientific study of the beneficial and harmful interactions of light on living organisms.

I'm an award-winning author, speaker, teacher, technologist, and feminist. My long-time practice of meditation and mindfulness informs my view of the mixed-up roles of men and women. 

There are many paths to transformation and change. One of the most critical changes is for people who identify as females to understand and live their vast, core power. People who identify as men must reawaken and revive their innate ability to imbue profound, resonant love into their lives and world. I teach meditation and mindfulness to help people log into these core qualities.

I’ve authored three books: 

- The Power of the Loving Man (to be released on March 17, 2020)

- Women, Meditation, and Power

- American Buddhist Rebel: The Story of Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz (winner of four literary awards; U.S. Best Books--2, The Eric Hoffer Award, and the Benjamin Franklin Award)

Additional book and audiobook projects are underway. Through my company, Skye Pearl, I focus on creating truthful and powerful global communications through various forms of media.

I especially want to reach out to: 

- Women and men who desire to learn more about meditation, 

- Parents who want to raise sons who respect women and girls who respect themselves, and

- Young, college-age women who are ready to come in to and claim their power.

I am a Director of The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism. I lead the grant category titled “Women in Buddhism.” Over the past decade, we’ve awarded grants to over 150 Buddhist organizations, most of whom are involved in social movements including teaching meditation and mindfulness at schools, prisons, military veteran facilities, homeless shelters, hospitals, city streets, and youth organizations.

I began my career as a freelance journalist and soon segued into Hollywood public relations, landing A-list clients in a number of entertainment sectors. Intrigued by the field of computer science, I left public relations in the 90s to take in-depth training in computer science. I was soon managing multi-million dollar IT projects for top Wall Street firms. Throughout my working life, I have taught and practiced meditation and mindfulness and observed first-hand the urgent need for upending gender norms to achieve world balance.

DiVecchio has made media headlines such as Good Morning America, The New York Post, Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness for helping his client win the largest weight loss prop bet to date of $1.2 million dollars. This professional poker player shed seventy pounds after his high stakes poker buddies bet him $1.2 million to get from 33% body to below 10% body fat in six months. Chris has also been featured on KTLA Morning News to talk about his book The 5x2 Method Revealing the Power of Your Senses. 
 
Chris DiVecchio brings an innovative approach to health and fitness with a unique blend of self-development transformation training. With over 20 years of experience, DiVecchio has trained everyone from athletes to models to people just trying to find time to fit in a workout. The majority of his clientele consists of high-level executives who have spent their lives building their wealth and success at the expense of their health and wellness and are now truly dedicated to balancing both.
 
As a fitness trainer and lifestyle specialist, Chris understands the importance of maintaining that balance which is why his programs are custom-designed to integrate into each individual’s lifestyle.  For many, it can often feel like an interruption.  DiVecchio believes that fitness and lifestyle do not need to live separately which is why he works intently with each client to customize a program that brings these two worlds together seamlessly and with sustainability. Between work, marriage, kids and social activities, it’s easy for people to get lost and wake up one day wondering what happened? When did I stop caring about my health? 

DiVecchio’s philosophy of 1 v.s. 23 suggests that the 1 hour a day you workout is important but it’s the choices you make with the other 23 hours of your day that have a much greater impact on the quality of your overall health and happiness. He uses a three-fold approach that focuses on nutrition, training and vitamin supplementation to target what he calls preventative health & wellness.  The key component of his program is accountability coaching. He takes the time to properly educate each client while honing their skills with time management and stress management to show just how easy it is to eliminate the excuses and get results.

My name is Kyle Flynn, I am the Owner of The Blueprint LA which is a Group Training Facility built on Culture, Community and Connection. I was born and raised in the City of Torrance and am the middle child of 3 boys. Growing up I participated in every sport under the sun and loved to compete. I was never a good student so I focused my energy on sports, being active and escaping from the classroom.
 
When I was in High School I excelled in Football and ended up earning a Scholarship to the University of Arizona State to play for the Sun Devils. Unfortunately, I found myself in some trouble and ended up going to LA Harbor College to play Football at the Junior College level. After a year and a half at Harbor College I was able to earn a scholarship to play Football at San Jose State University to play for the Spartans. 
 
My Training Career started after I was finished in San Jose and moved home. I came home and was dead broke, found a local gym and asked if I could start training there. At the time I was living out of a 1983 Chevy Blazer and didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. I spent many nights sleeping in my car and eating off the Taco Bell Dollar Menu with the Tip money I earned from giving away Free Personal Training sessions to get my name out into the Community.
 
I slowly caught some momentum and started to realize more and more that my purpose in life was to empower other people and connect them to their passion and purpose through fitness. I grew my Personal Training business into a group training business over the course of 3 years and decided it was a good idea to open up a Training Facility. In 2015 The Blueprint LA was established and I was officially a business owner with zero plan, zero experience and zero guidance. It was the best decision I have ever made. 
 
We struggled tremendously our first 2 years and I contemplated closing our doors because we only had 7 members and I was losing a lot of money every month. Instead of throwing in the towel I decided to buy out my partner and go all in. Second best decision I have made.
 
Over the past 3 years we have transformed hundreds of peoples lives and provided this community with a sanctuary of Empowerment, Passion and Positivity. Over the past year we have expanded from 3000 to 9000sq ft and are training a community of 350 people. I am planning to start hosting workshops for Gym Owners/Trainers that are looking to get in this space that need a guide. During my years of struggle it wasn't until I reached out for help that I saw the light.

It’s not easy to talk about Change, most people don’t want to hear anything about it at all. No one said embracing change is easy. It can be a challenge at the best of times. But there are so many benefits to change, if we’d only accept what new changes has to offer.
 
First of all it’s worth noting that most resistance to change is centered around fear. We fear the unknown which is mostly why we don’t want to deal with change. As creatures of habit we like consistency in our lives. It’s much easier to deal with things we know are going to happen in day to day life.
 
Once we get passed the fear of change we then can look at the spice of life which is variety! Trying new things, having an open mind, will show us new results and growth in our life in many different areas.

There’s a couple things we should know about our muscles when it comes to muscle memory, recovery and seeing results. Muscle memory is when our muscles conform to over and over repetition. If we do enough reps of something or do something enough times our body will do it without thinking about it. 
 
When it comes to muscle confusion we want to do keep our body guessing and avoiding this particular muscle memory so we can continue to see results. 
 
To avoid plateau's which means we aren’t seeing results anymore we need to continue to change up workouts, try new things, new exercises and movements. We can also increase reps and decrease weight, or reduce reps and increase weight.
 
There’s many things we can do to create muscle confusion and changing up workouts by doing just that. Keeping changing it up so you can continue to see results!

The 4 Agreements is one of my favourite books. It offers incredibly life lessons that we could all use to live by that will without question improve our quality of life.

In this episode Drew shares his perspective on each agreement and how they've changed his life for the better in different ways.

Starting with the first agreement: Be Impeccable with your word. It's just want you say but what you think about yourself and others.

Agreement number 2: Don't take anything personally. A difficult task without question but one that can be improved on over time and practice.

The Third agreement is, don't make any assumption. We have no idea what other people are going through in their lives. It's always a good idea to avoid making assumptions.

And finally the fourth agreement: Always do your best. Without question, how you do one thing is how you do everything. So strive to do your best no matter what it is that you're doing.

There is a proven and repeatable path to success and in this show that's exactly what Drew teaches you how to do. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. You don't have to start from scratch, if there's something you want to achieve someone has done it before or someone has done something similar in another industry.

All you have to do is follow the path to success that is clearly paved for you. In this show we'll go over just a few simple steps to help you get there.

For example the very first thing you need to do is decide what it is you want. Sounds too simply, no? The fact is, you won't be able to follow any other steps if you don't have the first one down.

After you decide you come up with a plan, after the plan you find an accountability partner, mentor and or coach.

From there we need to follow the path, stick with the plan and what may be the most challenging, we need patience. We need to give our plan time to develop which almost always takes longer than expected.

Growing up, Dr. Mozingo never knew the value of his childhood education until he began his pursuit of becoming a chiropractor at Palmer College of Chiropractic. There he learned how the human body works, and he applied his childhood education to understand how food plays an important role in keeping the body working at its best. 

Dr. Mozingo wrote his first book, The Weight Is Over, to help people understand the inner-workings of the human body and to help them take control of their own health. With great detail and reader-friendly analogies, The Weight Is Over takes the reader on a journey to build an understanding of how their health came apart, and how they can put it back together.
