Rank #1: Mark Sisson's Keto For Life: A Comprehensive Approach To Living Long and Living Awesome

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #3: Dr. Paul Saladino And The Carnivore Diet With Mark Sisson

Podcast cover
Read more

Host Mark Sisson welcomes carnivore diet expert Dr. Paul Saladino for a wide-ranging conversation centered upon the exciting new carnivore diet movement. Paul is a psychiatrist and functional medicine physician who has become a leading authority and promoter of carnivore-style eating. Paul talks about his background of western medical training, his approach of practicing "root cause medicine," and his discovery of incredible results from carnivore in himself, his patients, and many enthusiasts. 

  Mark and Paul get deep into the science of how eating what we have always believed to be a healthy plant-based diet can actually result in nutrient deficiency (especially vegan and vegetarian), autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. Dr. Paul explains how coffee and tea can also deliver net negative results, especially in sensitive people. You will emerge with an excellent understanding of the premise behind carnivore beyond the knee-jerk reaction that this strategy is unfounded or even dangerous. Open your mind and learn about the radical concept that plant foods may not be necessary, and may even be harming your health.     YOUTUBE:  https://youtu.be/W_ARV4RN1aw

Rank #5: 10 Awesome New Fitness Trends

Podcast cover
Read more
Host Brad Kearns talks you through a top-10 list of fitness trends that are simply awesome! It starts with Brad's favorite recommendation to maintain the passion and competitive intensity throughout life and then being smart and strategic with your training decisions. Today, there are many fantastic breakthroughs in fitness philosophy and strategy that emphasize stress-rest balance, recovery, and mobility instead of just the "no pain, no gain" emphasis of the old days. This list of ideas will be easy for you to implement into your daily routine and gain huge benefits for minimal time investment. Here's a quick look at the list the Brad details for you: Conduct plenty of flexibility/mobility drills per Kelly Starrett; conduct HIRT workouts in favor of HIIT per Dr. Craig Marker; emphasize Breakthrough Workouts per Mark Sisson (exciting new idea Mark's been talkin' 'bout since '88!); increase the severity of your stress/rest fluctuation per Brad Kearns (easier easy workouts!); exercise some restraint at your hardest workouts per Dr. Phil Maffetone: try micro-workouts during your busy day; conduct Rebound Workouts to recover faster, and understand HRV completely, both per Joel Jamieson; fast after difficult workouts (really!) per Dude Spellings; listen to the whole show per Brian "WholeDood" McAndrew. This could be one of the best podcast episodes of the decade because this stuff really works and it's do-able for all fitness enthusiasts!

Brian Gryn: Intermittent Fasting

Podcast cover

Brian is a personal trainer and scratch golfer from Chicago who has had some great success with intermittent fasting for both himself and his clients. He was initially inspired when he became frustrated by his inability to achieve the same results in the gym at age 38 as he did at 28 - imagine that! He started with the simple strategy of pushing his breakfast back an hour at a time until he was able to comfortably adjust to eating his first meal at around noon. Consequently, Brian typically ends up eating only two meals a day. Brian and Brad discuss an assortment of common sense tips to make fasting work for you, in particular: Be strict with your exercise so you don’t have decision fatigue and will power needed every day to stick with your plan; move around and keep busy during your fasting periods to make time fly by faster; clean up your diet so you can minimize glucose spikes and insulin crashes; make sure your dietary practices are a smooth fit into your busy life. 

Brian offers the memorable quote that muscles are made in the gym but that six-pack abs are made from diet. Another key benefit of adhering to some sort of fasting protocol is that you develop a greater appreciation for natural hunger and satiety sensations, and gain a greater sense of control in your life than when you have to rely on food for your energy, mood, and cognition. Enjoy numerous simple, common-sense insights that will get you psyched to try and succeed with Intermittent Fasting!

Dr. Ron goes beyond our obsession with germs and masks to describe how the health of our immune systems can greatly improve our chances of resisting the virus. He explains that your level of aerobic conditioning and whether or not you have inflammatory visceral fat will determine how your body responds to exposure from the virus.   If you need some motivation to get in shape, and also to get outdoors into sunlight to make some Vitamin D, your ability to resist Covid-19 is a pretty strong incentive. You will love Dr. Ron's positive attitude about our ability to beat this pandemic, and how we could emerge with many positive changes in the way we work (no more morning commute traffic?!) and the way medicine is practiced.

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.

His scientific mind combined with a holistic integrative perspective, makes him a skilled practitioner who therapeutically synthesizes optimal healing modalities for each individual.

Elle Russ chats with Helen Marshall - a certified Primal Health Coach & founder of the grain free food range Primal Alternative.  Helen hosts the Primal Alternative Podcast on the Wellness Couch which is the number one ranked health and wellness podcast station in Australia.  She is a Motivational Speaker on grass roots community centric change, overcoming limiting beliefs and creating an exceptional life.

Faced with a health crisis which included chronic nausea, constipation, insomnia, physical pain, headaches, brain fog, depression, anxiety and phobias, Helen returned to a diet of plants and animals to reclaim her health.  She ditched grains, sugar and seed oils and embraced sunshine, sleep, nature and connection. Helen got certified as a Primal Health Coach to let other women know that they were not on their own on their health journey and that they too could reclaim their health and change their life just with some diet and lifestyle tweaks and community behind them. But she got kick back, Helen’s clients told her that going grain free was hard – they were time-poor and found themselves falling off the wagon.  People found it hard to go without pizza, bread, cookies and lolly pops. So Helen offered to create a range of Primal Alternatives to the foods people love to make going grain free easy.

Helen was told that her products were life changing and she felt compelled to get the range to the whole of Australia but the thought of factories didn’t light her up and besides – she didn’t have any capital. Helen was inspired to share her successful baking business so that other women with a passion for clean living could start their own home business, doing what they love and make a difference in their community. The Primalista Baking License launched on Boxing Day 2016 and to date over 100 incredible women have said yes to this opportunity.  Primal Alternative now has an online store and over 150 stockists across Australia. In 2017 Quirky Cooking collaborated with Primal Alternative to bring a ready made version of their Life Changing Dough to the community. In 2018 Primal Alternative collaborated with Chef Pete Evans to bring a lunch box friendly No Nut Hemp Bread and in 2019 the No Nut Hemp Wrap. Before ditching the rat race, was a Fitness Instructor and Personal trainer then a Business Manager for a leading recruitment company in the city.  Helen has worked with women all of her life listening to their desires around health, work and lifestyle and has combined those skills to bring her greatest contribution yet – the Primalista Baking License.

Helen lives on 100 acres of wilderness in Albany, Western Australia with her husband Mike and their children Sam & Milly. She likes pilates, massage, coffee with her bestie, sunbathing, meditation, walks in nature and champagne in the spa.

Host Brad Kearns welcomes another podcast host to the show for a 'getting real" conversation about the habitual overtraining patterns of Type-A, highly motivated, goal-oriented fitness enthusiasts. This show was syndicated on Connie's podcast called the Fit Farming Food Mom. Connie is a Certified Nutritionist, ISSA certified personal trainer, competitive bodybuilder, Dental Assistant, hobby farmer in Idaho and mother of two young kids. She does it all!! But she had to learn the hard way that pushing too hard in training leads to setbacks instead of success. Brad kicks off the show with a challenge statement to athletes listening: "What are you all about, what is your true purpose for pursuing your fitness goals?" If you are trying to burn off nervous energy, escape from other stresses in life, or feed your ego, it's better to acknowledge it than behave in a manner that's different than your stated goals. When you can be honest with yourself, and release the attachment of your self-esteem from the results of your endeavors, you open yourself up for personal growth and performance breakthroughs.
