Primal Blueprint Podcast

A big problem with New Year’s resolutions is not something intrinsic to the practice of resolving to make positive changes in the coming year—these can be beneficial forces in a person’s life—but with the way we word our resolutions. Word choice determines everything. Words mean things. The words we use determine everything that follows. With just slight modifications to the wording and by being more specific, these resolutions can become more powerful, more effective, and more true to our nature and our actual desires.

How would I rewrite eight common New Year’s resolutions?

Mark Sisson and Brad Kearns discuss the long-awaited release of their new book, Keto For Life, a comprehensive owner's manual to pursue the ultimate goal of healthspan--living long and living awesome every step of the way. This discussion is also available in video format on YouTube. Enjoy a bit of everything in this free wheeling conversation. Mark reveals that he nearly refused the project since he was not walking his talk in his own life! And how focusing in on the book project helped him recalibrate and hone his most treasured skill of pivoting. Mark makes the assertion that longevity requires more than just dialing in diet, exercise, and sleep. You'll learn that Living Awesome encompasses the Four Pillars of Longevity detailed in the book: Metabolic Flexibility, Movement and Physical Fitness, Mental Flexibility, and Rest & Recovery. Mental Flexibility entails the ability to pivot in the face of life's challenges and changes, avoid the disease state of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), and prioritize meaningful interpersonal connections over hyperconnectivity. Learn why there are literally three relevant ages instead of just your chronological age, and why biological and psychological age are vastly more important than your calendar years. This is a great chance to connect with #listentothesisson as he walks you through his most comprehensive book to date! Visit KetoReset.com for details about the book and an incredible advance purchase bonus offer.

‘Tis the season for consumption.

Cookies, cakes, and pies abound. Feasts happen on a regular basis. Candy is given and received as gifts. And there are parties immeasurable—at work, with family, with friends—where calorie-dense, rewarding food is handed out, like, well, candy. The holiday season is a practice in overeating, and it can be very hard to avoid. You may not want to even avoid it; there’s something to be said for letting loose now and again on special occasions, especially when holiday cheer is in the air.

But what happens to your body when you overeat? And what can you do about it?

A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about how to read scientific research papers. That covered what to do. Today I’m going to tell you what NOT to do as a consumer of research studies.

The following are bad practices that can cause you to misinterpret research findings, dismiss valid research, or apply scientific findings incorrectly in your own life.

Elle Russ chats with Dr. Erin Fall Haskell (“Dr. Erin”) about overcoming and dealing with trauma. Dr. Erin is the creator and host of Good Morning LaLa Land.  She has been featured on the cover of magazines, radio, and ‘as seen on’ NBC, CBS, FOX, and ABC. She is the author of Awakening: A 40-Day Guide to Unleashing Your Spiritual Powers, Life’s Purpose, and Manifesting Your Dreams! Her mission is to awaken a billion people globally to their divinity while teaching them how to reprogram their subconscious, align with their personal truth and universal laws, and create a daily spiritual practice.

Dr. Erin mentors people one-on-one on a body, mind, and spiritual level. She believes that when someone awakens, they naturally have a gift and message to bring to the world. After many years of working with a wide range of clients; from top celebrities to single mothers, her programs are now available to everyone. Dr. Erin believes that the route to happiness and fulfillment is not just knowing the truth, but living the truth!

 

“There are moments in life when something happens, life alters, and your entire perception transforms instantaneously.” For Dr. Erin, that moment was 22 years ago when she was holding her stillborn son in her arms, just after giving birth to him. “Tears were streaming down my face as I looked at his beautiful body and realized his body was still there, but he wasn’t. I realized he wasn’t his body; he is a spiritual being. One can conceptually understand that we are not these bodies, but I got it on an entirely different level, my entire world crumbled, delivering me to spiritual revelation.” This sent her on an intense spiritual quest traveling around the world, discovering truths, and learning how to live and embody the truths that had been revealed.

There’s a ton of talk about intermittent fasting in the ancestral heath sphere for general health and wellness as well as weight loss, but little indication of specific applications for the practice. Anytime you attempt a “radical” health practice like not eating, it helps to have a good reason to do it. That will not only give you something to aim for, but it will ensure you actually have a physiological justification for your experiment. Never go in blind.

What are some of the specific scenarios and conditions where fasting makes the most sense?

A few years ago, I wrote a post describing all the things that avowed Primal eaters can learn from plant-based or even vegan dieters. Sure, we’re diametrically opposed on the role of animal foods in human health, but there are still relevant takeaways.

Carnivores are much closer to Primal eaters on the dietary spectrum, The Primal Blueprint posits that animal foods—meat, fish, fowl, shellfish, eggs, and dairy—represent the most nutrient-dense, most crucial component of the human diet. Carnivore takes that and runs with it, to its logical conclusion: Animal foods are so nutrient-dense and so important that we should eat them to the exclusion of everything else.

I don’t exactly agree, but I see where they’re coming from. And there’s a lot we can learn from the carnivore movement. I’ve got 8 takeaways today.
