Getting your diet and exercise routine dialed (Longcuts Part 1) is certainly an essential entry point to leading a long, healthy, happy life. But it’s only a portion of the big picture. Sleep is arguably more important than any other lifestyle practice, because if its compromised than other bets are off. In hectic, high-tech modern life, our stress management skills are in higher demand than any other time in the history of humanity. Finally, relationships are what make the world go round, but we often neglect them in favor of tangible objectives like filling plate with healthy food, filling logbook with impressive workouts, and filling bank account with money. If you are falling short in the areas of sleep, stress management and relationships, your keto goals are doomed. High stress lifestyle circumstances keep you in fight or flight mode, which equates with sugar cravings, carb dependency, and burnout. Let's take a step back from intense keto objectives for a moment and look at healthy lifestyle tips that can support your keto goals. This show will be syndicated on Brad's new podcast, called Get Over Yourself. Check the show out, as Brad covers topics relating to health, peak performance, personal growth, happiness, and longevity, with humor and a little spice!

Switch the B.S. meter to the "on" position and listen to the wise and powerful Dr. Cate Shanahan address many myths and misconceptions about keto, and other ancestral health practices on this hard-hitting show. Brad has avoided caffeine his whole life so he won't "fry his adrenals." Dr. Cate calls BS. How about eating in the evening--makes you store fat, right? Probably doesn't matter that much. Can you generate ketones on a super high carb diet? Yes you actually can, says Cate. It's all about long periods of fasting or eating in a caloric deficit.
Cate gives us some sneak previews from her fabulous new book, The Fat Burn Fix, that will land in 2020 (hold your breath until then, this is bound to be a masterpiece follow up to her landmark mega-bestseller Deep Nutrition. This book was originally self-published in 2009 and helped spur the explosive growth of the primal/paleo movement. In it, Dr. Catepresented her trademarked "Four Pillars of the Human Diet"
Oh yeah, you know those headaches that happen during a busy, sugar crash burnout day? This pattern can become a serious matter whereby you suffer from frequent mini-strokes when your brain is deprived of oxygen due to overconsumption of carbs and the brains over-reliance on sugar. Prominent author Dr. David Perlmutter calls Alzheimer’s “Type III diabetes” due to the close association between insulin resistance and cognitive decline. Good news shared by Dr. Cate is you can reverse early brain problems and stroke risk by transitioning to a more nutrient-dense, lower sugar, and especially keto-friendly diet. This is no funny business, as Dr. Cate offers the stat the typical western diet derives 66 percent of total calories from the big three main most offensive modern foods: sugars, grains, and refined vegetable oils. Dr. Cate is not afraid to call out entities like Harvard University for aggressively promoting nutrient-deficient diets for decades, spurred by corporate influences and the almighty dollar. This is highly disturbing, and greatly inspiring to take matters of health into your own hands.
