Rank #1: The Complete Guide to Fasting: How To Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting.
https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/fasting Thousands of books have been written about the latest and greatest diets that will help people lose weight and improve health. But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven’t thought about—yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting. Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it’s an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. Dr. Fung earned his medical degree at the University of Toronto, where he also completed his internal medicine residency before heading to the University of California, Los Angeles, for his fellowship in nephrology. He currently practices as a kidney specialist in Toronto. He is the chief of the department of medicine at Scarborough General Hospital. In addition to clinical medicine, he is also on the board of directors of Low Carb Diabetes Association and the scientific editor of the Journal of Insulin Resistance. During the course of treating thousands of patients, it became clear to Dr. Fung that the epidemic of type 2 diabetes and obesity was getting worse. The prevailing dietary recommendations to reduce dietary fat and calories were clearly ineffective. He founded the Intensive Dietary Management Program to provide a unique treatment focus for type 2 diabetes and obesity: rather than focusing on medications, this clinic focuses on dietary changes that are simple yet effective. In , he has teamed up with international bestselling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it’s so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Why Jason and Ben have different takes on whether or not to eat breakfast...[8:25] -The five different physiological stages of fasting...[16:45] -Why growth hormone actually goes up, not down, when you fast, and how the body uses this mechanism to maintain muscle...[30:15] -Why fasting doesn't actually decrease your metabolic rate or cause you to go into to starvation mode...[33:20] -What kind of scenario would actually cause your metabolic rate to decrease with calorie restriction...[37:10] -Why most of the Biggest Loser contestants actually regained their weight after the show...[44:35] -The reason hunger gradually disappears during a fast...[49:55] -The shocking things that happen to your body when you do an extended fast...[56:35] -What refeeding syndrome is...[63:00] -And much more...

Rank #2: The Plant Paradox: Are Lectins *Really* That Harmful Or Is Dr. Steven Gundry Wrong?.
https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/gundry Grains of all kinds, especially whole grain wheat. Corn. Tomatoes. Potatoes. Beans and legumes, particularly soy. Just about all nuts, especially cashews and peanuts. Zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant and pickles. And yes, even our dear friend the avocado. Each of these foods has one thing in common - a food component that today's podcast guest, , claims may responsible for some of the world's most pressing health issues, from obesity to heart disease. In Dr. Gundry's new book , he highlights exactly what that foood component is. Dr. Gundry is a renowned cardiologist, New York Times best-selling author and medical researcher. During his 40-year career in medicine, he has performed over 10,000 heart surgeries and developed multiple life-saving medical technologies, including patenting nine cardiac surgery devices. He is a cum laude graduate of Yale University with special honors in Human Biological and Social Evolution. After graduating Alpha Omega Alpha from the Medical College of Georgia School of Medicine, Dr. Gundry completed residencies in General Surgery and Thoracic Surgery at the University of Michigan and served as a Clinical Associate at the National Institutes of Health. There, he invented devices that reverse the cell death seen in acute heart attacks; variations of these devices subsequently became the Gundry™ Retrograde Cardioplegia Cannula. It has become the world’s most widely used device of its kind to protect the heart from damage during open-heart surgery. After completing a fellowship in congenital heart surgery at The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, in London, Dr. Gundry was recruited as Professor and Chairman of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Loma Linda University Medical Center. There, he and his partner, Leonard Bailey, pioneered infant and pediatric heart transplantation. Together, they have performed more such transplants than any other surgeons in the world. During his tenure at Loma Linda, Dr. Gundry pioneered the field of xenotransplantation, the study of how the genes of one species react to the transplanted heart of a foreign species. He was one of the original twenty investigators of the first FDA-approved implantable left ventricular assist device (a kind of artificial heart). Dr. Gundry is also the inventor of the Gundry Ministernomy, the widely used minimally invasive approach to aortic- or mitral-valve repair, the Gundry Lateral Tunnel, a “living” tissue that can rebuild parts of the heart in children with severe congenital heart malformations; and the Skoosh™ venous cannula, the most widely used cannula in minimally invasive heart operations. One of the fathers of robotic surgery, as a consultant to Computer Motion (now Intuitive Surgical), Dr. Gundry received early FDA approval to use robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery for coronary artery-bypass and mitral-valve operations. He holds patents on devices for connecting blood vessels and coronary artery bypasses without sutures, as well as for repairing the mitral valve without the need for sutures or a heart-lung machine. He has served on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Artificial Internal Organs (ASIAO), and was a founding board member and treasurer of the International Society of Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS). He recently completed two successive elected terms as President of the Board of Directors of the American Heart Association, Desert Division. Dr. Gundry has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the American College of Cardiology, the American Surgical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the College of Chest Physicians. He is a member of numerous other surgical and medical societies. He is also the author of more than three hundred articles, chapters, and abstracts in peer-reviewed journals on surgical, immunology, genetic, nutrition, and lipid investigations. He has operated in more than thirty countries, including charitable missions to China, India, and Zimbabwe. Inspired by the stunning reversal of coronary artery disease in an “inoperable” patient, using a combination of dietary changes and nutriceutical supplements, in 2001, Dr. Gundry changed the path of his career. An obese, chronic “diet” failure himself, he adapted his undergraduate Yale University thesis to design a diet based on evolutionary genetic coding, which enabled him to reverse his own medical problems. In the process, he effortlessly lost 70 pounds. The equally astonishing results from following what he came to call Diet Evolution in several of his staff led Dr. Gundry to accept a position in Palm Springs where he could devote his efforts to disease reversal. No longer satisfied with repairing the damage of chronic diseases, since 2002, Dr. Gundry founded and has served as Medical Director of The International Heart and Lung Institute in Palm Springs, California, which serves patients referred from across the nation. He is also Founder and Director of The Center for Restorative Medicine, part of the Institute. Its mission is to prevent and reverse the chronic diseases of “ageing” with diet and nutriceutical interventions, using surgical intervention for heart and vascular disease as a last resort. During today's discussion with Dr. Gundry, you'll discover: -What exactly a lectin is, and why plants have them...[6:56] -What happens to the gut upon consumption of lectins, and whether there's any research behind it...[9:25 ] -The common (and uncommon) sources of lectins that most people eat...[20:35] -How a lectin is different than gluten...[21:35 & 30:10] -Whether our ancestors ate plants and lectins...[31:10 & 44:50] -Why Steven is such a fan of eating fruit that’s in season, or fruit that is unripened...[36:45] -Why Steven thinks it is that so many of the Blue Zones in Dan Buettner's longevity book had a propensity for eating legumes, yet still lived long...[48:45] -Simple hacks you can use to reduce lectins in common foods like tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, apple, rice, etc...[39:55, 43:25 & 55:50] -And much more!

In this episode, Dr. Iñigo San Millán, Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, explains the crucial role of mitochondrial function in everything from metabolic health to elite exercise performance. Iñigo provides a masterclass into the many different energy system pathways, the various fuel sources (including the misunderstood lactate), the six zones of exercise training, and the parameters he uses to measure metabolic health. Additionally, he highlights the power of zone 2 training in its ability to act as a powerful diagnostic tool, and perhaps more importantly as a treatment for mitochondrial and metabolic dysfunction. We discuss: Iñigo’s background in sports and decision to focus on education [7:15]; Explaining the various energy systems and fuels used during exercise [14:45]; Iñigo qualifies energy systems into six training zones [26:00]; Lactate is an important fuel source [33:00]; Zone 2 training—physiologic characteristics, fuel sources, lactate, and the transition into zone 3 [40:30]; Using blood lactate levels (and zone-2 threshold) to assess mitochondrial function [47:00]; Accessing mitochondrial function by looking at one’s ability to utilize fat as fuel (with an RQ test) [55:00]; Athletes vs. metabolically ill patients—mitochondria, fat oxidation, muscle glycogen capacity, “fat droplets”, and more [1:00:00]; Physiologic characteristics of zone 3, zone 4, and the lactate threshold [1:20:00]; Fueling exercise—dietary implications on glycolytic function [1:30:30]; Relationship between exercise and insulin sensitivity (and what we can learn from studying patients with type 1 diabetes) [1:46:30]; Metformin’s impact on mitochondrial function, lactate production, and how this affects the benefits of exercise [2:04:15]; Raising awareness for risk of “double diabetes” [2:15:00]; How to dose zone 2 training, and balancing exercise with nutrition [2:18:00]; Proposed explanation of the Warburg Effect: Role of lactate in carcinogenesis [2:27:00]; Doping in cycling, and the trend towards altitude training [2:39:15] and; More.

Rank #2: #59 - Jason Fung, M.D.: Fasting as a potent antidote to obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and the many symptoms of metabolic illness.
In this episode, Jason Fung, nephrologist and best-selling author, shares his experiences utilizing an individualized approach to fasting to successfully treat thousands of overweight, metabolically ill, and diabetic patients, and why being a doctor who specializes in kidney disease gives him a unique insight into early indications of metabolic disease. We also have a great discussion on insulin resistance where Jason makes the case that we should actually think of hyperinsulinemia as the underlying problem. We also discuss the difference between time-restricted feeding, intermittent fasting, and dietary restriction (e.g., low-carb) and how they can be used to attack the root cause of T2D, metabolic syndrome, and obesity. We also have a fascinating discussion about the limitations of evidence-based medicine which leads to a conversation where we compare and contrast the scientific disciplines of medicine and biology to theoretical physics. We discuss: Comparing scientific disciplines: Medicine and biology versus physics [7:25]; The limitations of evidence-based medicine [12:30]; Early signs of metabolic disease: How specializing kidney disease gives Jason a unique insight into early indications of illness [20:50] Insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, and the overflow paradigm [29:30]; Why the common treatments for type 2 diabetes seem to make things worse [42:30]; How hyperinsulinemia (not insulin resistance) drives metabolic syndrome [53:15]; Insulin and weight gain, and using fasting to empty the cells of glucose [59:30]; The two step process of developing type 2 diabetes and how they are both manifestations of hyperinsulinemia [1:03:15]; NAFLD and hyperinsulinemia: A vicious cycle [1:08:30]; Are the features and symptoms of diabetes actually protective?

Rank #1: #107: The Scariest Navy SEAL I've Ever Met...And What He Taught Me.
Jocko Willink (@jockowillink) is one of the scariest human beings imaginable. He is a lean 230 pounds. He is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert who used to tap out 20 Navy SEALs per workout. He is a legend in the Special Operations world. His eyes look through you more than at you. He rarely does interviews, if ever. But a few weeks ago, Jocko ended up staying at my house and we had a caffeinated mind meld. Here's some background... Jocko enlisted in the Navy after high school and spent 20 years in the SEAL Teams, first as an enlisted SEAL operator and then as a SEAL officer. During his second tour in Iraq, he led SEAL Task Unit Bruiser in the Battle of Ramadi--some of the toughest and sustained combat in the SEAL Teams since Vietnam. Under his leadership, Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the entire war in Iraq and helped bring stability to Ramadi. Jocko was awarded the Bronze Star and a Silver Star. Upon returning to the United States, Jocko served as the Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams, designing and implementing some of the most challenging and realistic combat training in the world. So why is Jocko opening up? Well, in part, we have mutual friends. Second, he is the co-author of an incredible new book — Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win -- which I've been loving. Trust me. Buy it. This is his first mainstream interview and one you won't want to miss. Show notes and links for this episode can be found at www.fourhourworkweek.com/podcast.

Rank #2: #124: Jamie Foxx on Workout Routines, Success Habits, and Untold Hollywood Stories.
This episode is one of my favorite I've ever done. Jamie Foxx (@iamjamiefoxx) is an Academy Award-winning actor, a Grammy Award-winning musician, and a famous standup and improv comedian. He is, without a doubt, the most consummate performer and entertainer I have ever met. In the 2.5 hours we spent together in his home studio, he blew my mind. We cover a TON in this wide-ranging episode, including many never-before-heard stories. Here's just a tiny sample of what you'll hear: Jamie's workout routine Jamie's origin story -- how he used $400 to match a $1,000,000 party thrown by Puff Daddy; building up his network with Kanye, Jay Z, and Pharrell; expanding his fan base; and bombing horribly at the beginning. What he learned during the magic of In Living Color Jamie playing live music throughout our interview. Impersonations (and lessons learned from many of the following) -- Quincy Jones, Ed Sheeran, Ray Charles, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Cosby, Doc Rivers, Kermit the Frog, Sammy Davis, Jr., LeBron James, Bill Clinton, Tamara Rawitt, Shawn Wayans, Jim Carrey, Oprah Winfrey, Norman Lear, Mike Tyson, and others. The key skills Jamie learned from his grandmother. Jamie's parenting style. And much, much more...

Rank #1: TMHS 073: Hydration And Water Masterclass - Best Water Filter, Best Bottled Water, And Critical Water Facts.
There's a Slovakian proverb that says, "Pure water is the world’s first and foremost medicine." Water is at the very basis of human health and longevity. Far more valuable than food, going without adequate hydration sets in motion a ticking time bomb of physical depression and symptoms of disease. You may be shocked to find that water has been clinically documented to improve everything from diabetes, to high blood pressure, to arthritis pain, and everything in between. But how can water be this effective? It's just... well, water, isn't it? Today you're going to learn the truth about the significant impact that water has on your health. You're going to learn about the various methods of treating water, where they succeed, and where they come up incontrovertibly short. In this masterclass on water and hydration, you're going to find out how water actually gets into your cells in the first place, and how mismanaging this process can leave you more sick and thirsty than you can imagine. Most importantly, this masterclass is meant for you to be able to share it with the people you care about. They have the right to know what's coming out of their faucet. But, the sad truth is, only a fraction of the population really knows. Henry David Thoreau said, "I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man." In today's world, the wise individuals are not just drinking water, but the right kind of water. In this episode you'll discover: How your body's hydration levels affect your energy. What water actually is (this may shock you!) What roles water plays in your body (from DNA maintenance to waste removal). Why spinal discs are difficult to get hydrated. How your brain controls the water balance in your body. The shocking number of people who are chronically dehydrated. Why thirsty people eat more. How dehydration impacts your ability to burn fat. How eating carbohydrates influences your water weight. What aquaporins are and why they are critical to hydration. What shocking pharmaceutical drugs are found in drinking water. How prescription drugs are ending up in our water supply. Why chlorine is used to treat public water (and its potential side effects). What the hidden dangers of fluoride are (this is critical to know and share!) Why many bottled waters are no better than tap water. How plastic water bottles could be impacting your hormones. The surprising facts about Brita water filters. What the pros and cons of water distillation are. What purified water really means. How a water ionizer works to create alkaline water (this may be the biggest surprise of all!) Why the pH of water can be changed by mineral content or electricity. How a reverse osmosis system works. What the benefits of well water are (and some issues to look out for). Why the right spring water could be the ideal drinking water for you. The top 4 sources for the best water possible. Which three companies provide great spring water in a glass water bottle. The 5 different ways to supercharge your water.

Rank #2: TMHS 047: If You Want A Great Exercise Program For Fat Loss, Try This!.
In this episode of The Model Health Show we're sharing exercise secrets for a better body and better health. When it comes to exercise programs, there isn't really much new under the sun. Whatever's popular has usually been here before in some form or fashion. P90-X, Bootcamps, Supersets, drop sets, 300 different types of yoga, pilates, sprint training, cross fit, and countless other exercise approaches claim to be the best thing ever, but really apply many of the same principles. Just about every form of exercise will provide incredible value if utilized in the right way. But how can we take the best pieces from these things, and put them together to get the greatest benefit in the shortest amount of time? Let me introduce you to Hybrid Training. This form of exercise will give you the most bang for your buck. Not just for the sake of body image and burning fat (which it will definitely do that), but for the sake of staying youthful longer, having better biomarkers of health, and building a functional, fit body. Have a look a what you're going to learn today, and remember to grab your bonus workout template after listening to the show! In this episode you'll discover: Why the majority of exercise programs are really the same (just packaged differently). What hybrid training is and why it's more effective than other training strategies. How many different muscle fiber types there really are. Which muscle fibers you need to focus on for the biggest results. What muscle fiber recruitment is. Why muscle is actually CRITICAL to staying younger longer. Why your body is more likely to retain fat when doing conventional "cardio" exercise. How some forms of exercise compliment certain body types and not others. What my exclusive Hybrid Training Program is (get the template right here). How to warm-up before exercise in the smartest way possible. How a heavy weight lifting set affects your hormones. The truth about getting 6-pack abs or a flat stomach faster. Hands down, the #1 exercise for eliminating body fat.

Rank #1: Navy SEAL David Goggins Is The Toughest Athlete On Earth — Thoughts On Mindset, The 40% Rule & Why Purpose Always Trumps Motivation.
“When you think you're done, you're only at 40% of your total potential.”David GogginsThis week's guest is incontrovertibly the most inspirational person I have ever met — a man that will catapult you into 2017 with the inspiration and tools to chase huge dreams, shatter limits, and actualize your best, most authentic self.Often referred to as the toughest athlete on the planet, David Goggins (@davidgoggins) is the only member of the US Armed Forces to complete SEAL training (including THREE Hell Weeks), the U.S. Army Ranger School (where he graduated as Enlisted Honor Man) and Air Force tactical air controller training.But David is perhaps best known for his superhuman feats of strength and ultra-endurance.After several of his friends died in a 2005 helicopter crash while deployed in Afghanistan, David honored their memory by tackling the 10 most difficult endurance challenges on Earth to raise funds and awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides college scholarships and grants to the children of fallen special ops soldiers.Hence began a most unexpected yet remarkably storied athletic career as one of the world's most accomplished endurance athletes. Highlights include:* 2013: world record for most pullups in a 24 hour period (4,030);* 2007: 3rd place — Badwater 135 – a 135 mile ultramarathon across Death Valley widely considered to be the world’s most difficult foot race;* 2006: 2nd place — Ultraman World Championships, a double-ironman distance race widely considered to be the world's most difficult triathlon;* 2007: 1st place — 48-Hour National Championship endurance foot race, where he ran 203.5 miles, beating the previous record by 20 miles; and* 2007 – 2016 — additional top finishes at dozens of the world's most grueling endurance races, including The HURT 100, Leadville 100, Western States & more.But perhaps David’s greatest accomplishment is that throughout his life, he has faced and overcome a concatenation of seemingly insurmountable obstacles to become the man he is today – obstacles like asthma, sickle cell anemia, psychological and physical abuse, obesity, academic struggles, and even a congenital heart defect that often left him competing — and winning — on a mere fraction of his actual physical capabilities.In addition to being one of the most remarkable people I have ever met, David has had a profound impact on me personally. It was his singular example that ignited my passion for ultra-endurance and fueled the self-belief required to pursue a new life. In truth, I’m not sure I would have achieved my athletic and life goals had he not blazed the path before me. I simply cannot ever repay the debt of gratitude I have for this man.One of the most powerful podcasts I have ever produced, this a conversation about the primacy of purpose to cultivate your inner voice. It's about passion and self-accountability. It's about the limiting beliefs that hold us back and the importance of mindset to overcome them. And it's about the embrace of suffering as a crucible for growth and self-knowledge.But ultimately, this is a conversation about what it means to be truly alive.Welcome to 2017 people. It's time to check your excuses at the door. It's time to stop talking yourselves out of being great. It's time to get comfortable being uncomfortable. It's time to wake up. Because your life is not some future event. Your life is now.Peace + Plants,P.S. – If you enjoy this podcast and can't get enough of Goggins,
Rank #2: You Can’t Hurt David Goggins: Going Beyond Motivation & Why Mindset Is Everything.
“You have to go to war with yourself before you can find peace”David GogginsI can think of no better guest to usher in 2019 than the mighty one himself.Incontrovertibly the most inspirational person I have ever met, today David Goggins returns for his second turn on the podcast — a conversation that will catapult you into the new year with the tools and hard truth you need to chase huge dreams, shatter personal limits and transform your life wholesale.Often referred to as the hardest man alive, David is the only member of the US Armed Forces to complete SEAL training (including three Hell Weeks), the U.S. Army Ranger School (where he graduated as Enlisted Honor Man) and Air Force Tactical Air Controller Training.But David is perhaps best known for his superhuman feats of strength and ultra-endurance.After several of his friends died in a 2005 helicopter crash while deployed in Afghanistan, David honored their memory by tackling the most difficult endurance challenges on Earth to raise funds and awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides college scholarships and grants to the children of fallen special ops soldiers.Hence began a most unexpected yet remarkably storied athletic career as one of the world's most accomplished endurance athletes. Highlights include:* 2005: ran 100 miles in under 24 hours on no training;* 2013: world record for most pullups in a 24 hour period (4,030);* 2007: 3rd place — Badwater 135 – a 135 mile ultramarathon across Death Valley widely considered to be the world’s most difficult foot race;* 2006: 2nd place — Ultraman World Championships, a double-ironman distance race widely considered to be the world's most difficult triathlon;* 2007: 1st place — 48-Hour National Championship endurance foot race, where he ran 203.5 miles, beating the previous record by 20 miles; and* 2007 – 2016 — additional top finishes at dozens of the world's most grueling endurance races, including The HURT 100, Leadville 100, Western States & more.But David’s greatest accomplishment isn't athletic. It's self-mastery.From day one, David has faced a concatenation of seemingly insurmountable obstacles – poverty, psychological and physical abuse, obesity, learning disabilities, asthma, sickle cell anemia, and even a congenital heart defect that often left him competing — and winning — on a mere fraction of his actual physical capabilities. It's a scenario that would have buried the best of us. And yet, against all odds, David conquered them all, and ultimately found a way out.It's the story of a man who transformed pain into obsession and, phoenix-like, rose from a state of utter desperation to take complete ownership of his life and total command of his mind to manifest a most extraordinary life.David's implausible journey is laid bare in his recently released memoir, Can't Hurt Me* — one of the most honest, powerful and impactful stories of hardship, redemption and personal perseverance I have ever read. Certain books instruct. Others inspire. But it's the rare read that holds the potential to reframe your sense of personal capability and completely change your life. This book does just that — a statement I don't make lightly. I highly suggest
