Host Brad Kearns talks about his first failed attempt at keto (lasted 3 weeks doing really great, then a bomb-out at the Burbank Airport snack shop!), and how you can ensure that you are well-prepared for keto before struggling, suffering and backsliding. If you’re nervous about your metabolic fitness and whether you can handle the rigor of a ketogenic eating period, realize that any effort you make in the direction of fat- and keto-adaptation will improve your metabolic fitness and progress you closer to your goal of being a fat burning beast and further away from the disastrous state of carbohydrate dependency that the civilized world lives in.

Learning from your mistakes and detours, you will have heightened awareness of your behavior patterns. Then, you can build more natural, healthy resolve to stay keto-aligned in the future. Absorb the lessons offered, accept that you’re not perfect, let it go, and brandish your weapon once again by engaging in an intermittent fast, a fasted workout, and a sustained pattern of high fat, moderate protein, low-carb succession meals.

Elle Russ chats with Anthony G. Jay, Ph.D. about his new book Estrogeneration: How Estrogenics Are Making You, Fat, Sick, and Infertile. It was in college where Anthony began researching inhibitors of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and after college, Dr. Jay began working in an Alzheimer’s disease lab in Boston for the U.S. Veteran’s Affairs. Ultimately earning his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, he began researching different types of fats and cholesterol. Today, Dr. Jay continues to lead the AJ Consulting Company, which he founded in 2010, where he predominantly analyzes DNA for high performing individuals. Dr. Jay has other upcoming books as part of this book series called “Chagrin & Tonic” and a YouTube channel under that name, all focused on simplifying important scientific ideas.

Host Brad Kearns talks about the methodical process outlined in The Keto Reset Diet and the Keto Reset multimedia online course, where you progress steadily away from carbohydrate dependency and toward fat- and keto-adaptation without the struggling, suffering, and backsliding that typically occurs when you fail to do your homework or follow an ill-conceived approach. This overview shows covers the 21-Day Metabolism Reset, where you ditch grains, sugars, and refined vegetable oils in favor of primal-approved foods, integrate the lifestyle elements of exercise (move more frequently, avoid chronic patterns), sleep (avoid excess artificial light and digital stimulation after dark), and stress management

If you look at the latest stats, you might assume there’s no cognitive health crisis. The overall number of dementia cases are going up, but that’s because the aging population is growing. Older folks are living longer than ever before, so there are more people around who can develop dementia. Dementia and Alzheimer’s rates are dropping in the Western world. Politicians, those archetypical paragons of cognitive aptitude, are hanging around in office longer than ever. Technology, science, and other fields that require large amounts of cognitive ability are progressing.

But broad trends and large numbers are just statistics. However reassuring they are to public policy analysts, they mean nothing to the individual suffering from cognitive decline. They’re too abstract. Your grandpa no longer knowing who you are? That’s real. You, personally, don’t want to lose your cognitive abilities as you age. You, personally, don’t want to see the people you love get Alzheimer’s. Individual cases matter to those individuals and their loved ones. And it’s still happening more than it should.

Elle Russ chats with Ken Berry, MD, about his new book Lies My Doctor Told Me. Have your doctors lied to you? Chances are they have, and most likely unknowingly. If you've been misled by bad medical advice your health will suffer. It is time you discover the truth. Medical research is expanding so quickly that only the most dedicated doctors can keep up with it all. Is your doctor that dedicated? Lies My Doctor Told Me reveals the truth behind the lies told by well-meaning doctors. Whether it's recommending a low-fat diet, or warning you to avoid the sun, these medical lies can cause really harm to your health. Does your doctor still recommend that you avoid cholesterol and eat lots of whole-grains? What about a paleo diet or ketogenic diet, have they been mentioned in an office visit? So much of the nutrition and lifestyle advice doctors give is just plain wrong, and that can be dangerous. This book will help you sort through the medical myths and the outright lies, and begin to develop a health partnership with your doctor.

Dr. Berry has been practicing Family Medicine in rural Tennessee for over a decade. He is board certified in Family Medicine, and was recently awarded the degree of Fellow by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Having seen over 20,000 patients of all ages over his career, he is uniquely qualified to advise on both acute and chronic diseases. Dr. Berry has focused of chronic disease caused by the Standard American Diet and Lifestyle, and has made it his mission to turn the tide on the epidemic of Type 2 Diabetes, chronic inflammation and dementia.

The book is an ancient technology whose importance has only increased in modern times. With a book, you gain access to another person’s mind or life experiences. That’s hard to beat. People who aren’t reading are really selling themselves short and missing out on an enjoyable pastime as well as a leg up on the competition.

Here are some fantastic books to dig into this coming year. Most of them are new and deal with health, fitness, and nutrition. Others are about history, productivity, or self-improvement. Some are just fun reads. They’re some of my recent (or long-time) favorites and all great options for people looking to read more this coming year.

Sure, this post comes right on the heels of Cyber Monday…but is there ever a perfect time for a message like this? Yes, I run a business, but I still don’t mind kicking the cultural hornet’s nest. Some things don’t change.

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t contradiction. Here I am doing my own holiday shopping today (don’t tell Carrie)—and offering my own deals to those who are interested. The holidays—with all the shopping and parties and prep—are fun. No doubt. Simultaneously, I know financial stress takes a major toll this time of year, and it doesn’t have to be that way.

Mark Sisson chats with Jacques DeVore about his book Bicycling Maximum Overload for Cyclists - a radical strength-based training program aimed at increasing cycling speed, athletic longevity, and overall health in half the training time. Rather than improving endurance by riding longer distances, you’ll learn how to do it by reducing your riding time and adding heavy strength and power training. Traditionally cyclists and endurance athletes have avoided strength and power training, believing that the extra muscle weight will slow them down, but authors Jacques DeVore and Roy M. Wallack show that exactly the opposite is true.

The Maximum Overload program uses weightlifting to create sustainable power and improved speed while drastically reducing training time and eliminating the dreaded deterioration that often occurs during the second half of a ride. A 40-minute Maximum Overload workout, done once or twice a week, can replace a long day in the saddle and lead to even better results. This comprehensive program includes unique takes on diet, interval training, hard and easy training, and sustainable power. Backed by the most trusted authority in the sport, Bicycling Maximum Overload for Cyclists is a book that no cyclist should be without.

Jacques DeVore is the founder of the Sirens & Titans Fitness Training Centers in West Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, and licensed as an expert USA Cycling Coach. DeVore is the creator of the Maximum Overload training plan. DeVore has successfully trained hundreds of cyclists and triathletes with this program, including pro rider Dave Zabriskie. He lives in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, CA. Roy M. Wallack is a fitness columnist at the Los Angeles Times, has freelanced for Outside, Men's Journal, Bicycling, Runner's World, and Competitor, among other publications. He the author of seven books including Bike for Life, The Traveling Cyclist, and Barefoot Running Step-by-Step. Wallack is also an endurance athlete and has competed in some of the most difficult athletic challenges on earth including the 750-mile Paris-Brest-Paris ride, and the Badwater Ultramarathon across California’s Death Valley. He lives in Irvine, CA.

For most of my life, Thanksgiving was spared the overt commercialization of the other holidays. Christmas has the gifts, Halloween the candy and costumes, Valentine’s the chocolates, roses, jewelry, and guilt—perfect avenues for commercial interests. But Thanksgiving genuinely felt different, as if it was only about getting together with friends and relatives over a crispy-skinned bird and offering gratitude for what we had and who was still with us.

These days, commercialization has crashed the party. You’ve got Black Friday. Then Small Business Saturday. Then Cyber Monday. (Giving Tuesday I can get behind.) The “Black Friday” deals on Amazon started going last week and should continue well past the holiday.
