Host Brad Kearns talks about introducing brief, explosive, high intensity workouts into your training schedule to prompt quick and dramatic improvements in your performance at all levels of intensity, even ultra endurance. When you become competent at sprinting, you reduce perceived exertion and improve metabolic function at all lower levels of intensity. However, you gotta do this stuff right or you will fry your brain and body with ammonia toxicity and cellular destruction. The end of the show gets really sciency so you can learn why the ideal duration for sprinting is just 10-20 seconds--breakthrough concepts from Dr. Craig Marker and his landmark article titled "HIIT versus HIRT." You'll learn why prolonged interval sessions with performance attrition and cumulative fatigue are more destructive and less effective than HIRT--High Intensity Repeat Training. Brief, explosive efforts coupled with "luxurious rest intervals' (Pavel Tsatsouline of Strong Endurance). If you want to get faster very quickly, you best listen to this show and make some important revisions changes to your current training patterns.

Brad and Brian are back! Primal video and audio master Brian McAndrew comes to the other side of the mic and gets deep into it with Brad Kearns on all matters of keto, carnivore, and the optimal balance between discipline and enjoying life. The pair discuss the surging popularity of carnivore, wondering about the carni argument that plants might be difficult to digest. They discuss the incidental benefits of keto and carnivore, providing structure, focus, and minimizing decision fatigue and the tendency to get an inch and take a mile. On that note, Brad cops to some recent popcorn binge behavior, and reflects on whether we might gain deeper enjoying from our eating when putting in some restrictions. Brian says keto is “easier” because you can skip meals comfortably—possibly the opposite logic of the SAD eater. As we get more and more sophisticated with dietary strategies, Brian wonders if we might be motivated by FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) instead of a true opportunity to enhance health and well being. This show flows into stuff that’s not usually covered in the informational-heavy programs and will really get you thinking. For example, if you were told that eating only salmon eggs for the rest of your life would deliver a 20% boost in peak performance and longevity, would you make that devils bargain?

Elle Russ chats with Integrative Physician Gary E. Foresman MD about coronary artery disease (CAD) screening, statin drugs, cholesterol, and when and how you should get tested.
In 1994 when Dr. Foresman opened a private practice, he quickly became dissatisfied with the inability of established Western medical treatments to effectively treat many of his patients. Dr. Foresman began investigating alternative therapies and has since expanded his training in many systems of healing—not just through meditation and stress management, but also using botanical, orthomolecular and functional medicine systems. His scientific mind combined with a holistic integrative perspective, makes him a skilled practitioner who therapeutically synthesizes optimal healing modalities for each individual.
Dr. Foresman ranked among the top in the nation on his Internal Medicine Board Exams and has some of the most comprehensive Internal Medicine training to be found - including serving as a Clinical Professor who trained other physicians at a University Medical Center.
In-depth commentary on thyroid dysfunction by Dr. Gary Foresman can be found in The Paleo Thyroid Solution written by Elle Russ.

Keto Passport is a fabulous new international cookbook written by Lindsay with Layla McGowan. This dynamic duo also co-authored the Keto Reset Instapot Cookbook. Keto Passport offers an opportunity to bust loose from the confines and staleness of ketogenic eating, where you feel like all you can eat is meat and vegetables.
Keto Passport takes you across the entire globe with fabulous cultural recipes, including traditional favorites that were carefully modified to remain keto friendly. Lindsay, a social psychologist, says people get bored, stifled, or frustrated with the keto guidelines, and that keeping things from getting stale and less enjoyable is essential for continued adherence to admittedly tight dietary parameters. Layla brings in her Korean and German heritage to the project, sharing familial meals passed down verbally for generations right into this cookbook. The pair also curated many familiar cultural favorites that happen to be keto.
Lindsay also weaves in some excellent health insights for how to do keto the right way, and to understand how to navigate the various recommendations and approaches to keto. One item of interest is how insulin ain’t all bad. In fact, Lindsay explains that pulsatile insulin spikes are desirable. Insulin allows you to replenish cellular energy but not suffer from the inflammatory effects and compromised fat burning of chronically excessive insulin production. Consequently, Lindsay and Brad echo the advice from the all-knowing Dr. Cate Shanahan, who strongly recommends against snacking between meals. When you eat any sort of food (yes, even a fat bomb!), you shut off ketone production and fat metabolism and trigger insulin release. It’s also good to give your digestive system a break, both from a maximum daily eating window (12 hours, per the work of Dr. Satchin Panda), and from the snacking habit. However, Lindsay cautions against restrictive dietary patterns if you have adrenal, thyroid, or eating disorder history.
Keto Passport features recipes under 15g of carbs, usually under 10g. While dairy has become a centerpiece of keto to add to fat percentages, many object to heavy dairy intake, so Keto Passport offers plenty of variety to give you a dairy-free experience. There are a great assortment of recipes, from elaborate gourmet preparations to quick primers on how to make your own kimchi or sauerkraut or srihacha sauce. Get your copy of Keto Passport on amazon or wherever great books are sold. It’s a really fun read with a beautiful layout that will inspire you to try some exciting new dishes!!

Host Brad Kearns talks about transforming once and for all away from the high-stress, mileage obsessed approach to an evolved approach that makes recovery the central focus of your training instead of suffering and enduring. And by the way endurance athletes, its time to turn off the endurance gene off the race course and quit enduring crappy jobs and toxic relationship dynamics. Be good to yourself and honor the importance of balancing stress and rest. If you experience a slight disturbance in immune function, don't train at all! Avoid black hole workouts and be okay with lowering your heart rate way below MAF, you still get an awesome training effect. Brad talks about his recent experiences with overdoing his beloved Speedgolf and experiencing burnout and getting less consistent with cardio workouts to allow for more energy allocation to explosive workouts, which is the topic of part 2 of this important show

Host Brad Kearns and Dr. Lindsay finally capture some of the magic that happens during their random off-mic conversations. Yep, Brad pushed the record button and Lindsay immediately throws out some profound philosophical and psychological questions to ponder. Is body composition a worthwhile goal, or are we placing too much importance on how we look instead of how we feel? The intuitive eating/body positivity movement has tremendous merit, but do we engage in too many rationalizations and self-defeating behaviors as life gets easier and easier?
Striving for balance is important, but what if you really want the six-pack? Is it you that wants it, or is it society telling you to want it? It’s undisputable that it’s better to be in control of your destiny than to succumb to manipulative social media programming, and excess body fat is often a symptom of lifestyle flaws that are compromising your happiness, health, fitness, and longevity. Its important to reach some basic fitness and health standards to avoid the pain and suffering of aging. These are other topics will hit you hard and really get you thinking about your goals and priorities. Lindsay says, “Maybe the best goal is to care about how you feel, instead of how you look.”

Host Brad Kearns gets personal discussing his varying commitment to keto and how loosening the purse strings here and there can become a slippery slope. When you relax standards like limiting food intake to a compressed eating window or allowing occasional indulgences for non-keto foods like popcorn, will power and decision fatigue enter back into the mix. Framingham Study data indicate that the lifestyle behaviors of your "clusters," the people who spend the most time with, is contagious up to three degrees. Obesity is contagious, as is maintaining a healthy body composition. Keto is contagious to your friend, as well as your friend's friend! This impresses the importance of accountability and group support to pursue goals together.
Finally, Brad describes the dangers of a rushed approach to keto, where jumping into a dietary transformation before you are metabolically healthy and fat-adapted can cause big trouble; namely, an overstimulation of the fight or flight response leading to burnout and regression. If you want to drop excess body fat, first you must become metabolically healthy (heal leaky gut), then become fat-adapted. If you have to eat a lot of fat out of the gate, that's fine. Then you can transition to skipping meals and burning off excess body fat. This is a great show to get you motivated on some of the social and motivational factors behind succeeding with keto. Even Brad's morning cold plunging gets a cameo!
