Step 1 is about coming to terms with the FACT this this thing is controlling you, you don’t control it. It’s a power statement that actually gives people their control back vs the addiction to/of whatever having that control. It’s a powerful statement to say I am powerless over this and I need help to regain control of my life. There’s a significant difference between emotions, behaviors and substances, so you have to keep it in context. We can’t never eat again, but I can certain work my program and never use again.

Rank #2: 116 – Self-leadership

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 30:09) In this episode we offer a summary of the nature of internal critical parts via the Internal Family Systems perspective. They can be viewed from the standpoint of managing exiled wounded aspects of us that got overwhelmed or harmed a long time ago. In turn, when others are critical of us and our behaviors, it’s yet another reflection of unprocessed wounded aspects in their selves. Cultivating a perspective of kindness and compassion towards even critical parts can help transform costly patterns; and this entails a process of unblending from one’s triggered defenses, so one can observe one’s internal processes in a conscious and empathetic way. This tends to naturally cultivate the “eight Cs” of self-leadership: calmness; curiosity; clarity; compassion; confidence; creativity; courage; and, connectedness. As we attune to our inner processes, we can manifest more of who we really are, the true and loving essence of ourselves.

Rank #3: 76 – The nature of self-control

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 22:42)

In this show we discuss the process of staying focused on your healthy lifestyle choices. It’s not a matter of using either sheer will power or “tricks” to stay on track with your dietary goals. Having a “Zen-like focus” isn’t as important as getting in touch with your feelings and needs, so that you can develop strategies for a healthy lifestyle that doesn’t conflict with your long-term goals. Instead of applying duct tape and sitting on your hands, it’s important to deal with subconscious conflict, which may be hindering you from becoming at peace with your choices and feeling good about yourself. Introspection and self-work are key!

Podcast cover

(duration 17:12)

In this show we discuss the latest mainstream acknowledgement of what we’ve been saying all along: excess carbs (i.e., high insulin levels) have bad health effects, not saturated fat. We also explore The Belly Fat Cure, a book by Jorge Cruise, fitness guru and nutrition coach. He’s brought a message that’s quite similar to ours into the mainstream (even on Oprah), which is great, but we have our caveats and explain why our unique focus on the psychological side of weight loss, fitness, and nutrition is so important!

Rank #5: 119 – Liberation from shame pathways

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 43:57) We’re finally back in the saddle (apologies for the delay!). As we’ve let the show age like a fine primal wine, we share news that Kevin is departing and that Wes will continue solo (sometimes w/ guests) for at least the next year. In this episode we explore parts of a couple informative books on nutrition (links below), including detrimental aspects of “vegetable oils,” aka, industrial seed oils, as well as current findings on oxidized omega 3s. Then we finish our series on the experience and beliefs about shame, in which we note once again that it’s unhelpful for win/win interactions with self and others—since shame is the opposite of self-esteem. We cover the following related components from the inner liberation process, which is featured on http://radicalcompassion.com:
-Self-acceptance: Accepting oneself with unconditional caring.
-Reconnecting to self and recovering from reactivity: Reactivity is internal resistance to what is. Recovery is letting go of that resistance. Reconnecting to self is being with one’s own experience with presence and compassion.
-Honest self-expression: Owning one’s experience and having the willingness to express authentically without blame or criticism.
-Responding to others’ reactivity: Responding rather than reacting to others who are caught up in intense separating emotions.
-Openness to feedback: Receiving other’s perspective about our actions with equanimity and centeredness.
-Cultivating vitality: Tuning in to oneself to support balanced self-care; cultivating the energy to serve life.
As noted below, we also went on a few tangents in this concluding show as a duo, including the ill effects of a society that tends to disfavor political freedom and, thus, self-responsibility.

Endogenous membrane lipid peroxidation results in altered membrane fluidity, transport, and cell signalling [8] which also may be an important disease mechanism.”

Instead of getting discouraged and continuing the cycle of yo-yo dieting, stay determined and focus on your long-term health goals

Sometimes, you’ll have to tweak your eating regimen in order to maintain your weight loss process; plateaus happen

You’re always just one meal away from getting back in the weight loss zone!

The “fat fast diet” consists of a thousand calories per day, with 90 percent fat and 10 percent protein; it burns fat off the quickest, but it’s certainly not something to do for very long, as it will lead to malnutrition.

The induction phase of the Atkins diet (usually lasting a couple weeks) consists of less than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day

There are vast differences between benign dietary ketosis and ketoacidosis, only the latter of which is harmful
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ketoacidosis

It’s important to not let negative thoughts define you…
http://www.lowcarblindsey.com/_blog/blog/post/Words_are_Powerful!/

Focus on the things that you feel are positive about yourself and use them to strengthen your self-concept

Look to support groups on the Internet to learn new things, overcome difficulties, and help motivate you

Practicing self-acceptance helps you come to terms with your feelings about your self-image; own your feelings about how you look, in order to recognize your true beauty

Rank #8: 79 – Entering The Zone with Dr. Barry Sears, part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 31:15)

This is the first half of our interview with Barry Sears, PhD, in which we discuss the nature of eicosanoids and in particular arachidonic acid in relation to metabolic health and overall health. Excessive carbohydrate consumption (which is terribly easy to do in our culture) coupled with excess omega 6 fatty acid consumption (and minimal omega 3 fatty acid consumption) tend to lead to chronic inflammation and disease states. The ratio of (long chain) arachidonic acid to (long chain) eicosapentaenoic should be around 1 to 2, but in most individuals it’s much higher, which is due primarily to unhealthy diets—diets not fashioned for our genes. Massive changes in our nutrient intake from our Paleolithic origins can deleteriously affect our levels of hormones, especially the hormones that control the inflammation process. Even if you’re thin, it’s still important to eat foods (and macronutrient ratios) that don’t contribute to insulin resistance and lipotoxicity.

Rank #11: 81 – Snipping the string of yo-yo dieting

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 26:24)In this episode we discuss the nature of gaining weight back and yo-yo diets. We cover a CBT study wherein subjects were not able to minimize post-treatment weight gain. We attribute this not to the therapeutic treatment per se, but rather to the uncertain nutritional regimen of the participants of the study (involving the caloric theory of weight loss); if you don’t know what will be healthy or unhealthy to eat in terms of various macronutrients, then you’re at a major disadvantage. Additionally, self-knowledge via sentence completion exercises and becoming fluent in nonviolent communication will enable you to form an intimate and empathetic relationship with yourself, which is key to making healthy choices and experiencing happiness for the long term. Oh, and steer clear of the pervasive sweet poison. ;)

Rank #13: 80 – Entering The Zone with Dr. Barry Sears, part 2

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 26:13)

In the second half of our interview with Barry Sears, PhD, we begin by discussing the nature of “anti-nutrients,” such as lectins and phytates found primarily in grains and legumes; best to steer clear of them, at least as staples. Everything you eat will have a hormonal and inflammatory consequence. Regarding consumption of omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), adjust based on your level of inflammation–as evidenced by your arachidonic acid to EPA ratio (SIP, or Silent Inflammation Profile)–which will typically mean consuming between 6 and 10 grams of omega 3s per day. Saturated fats aren’t really the villain that the mainstream “experts” have claimed they are; omega 6 fatty acids are more inflammatory. Having a consistent balance of macronutrients is key, consuming more fat (“high octane fuel”), adequate protein, and fewer carbs than typical. Antioxidant supplements tend not to have much empirical support, although polyphenols (found in fruits and veggies) have important health benefits. It’s vital to reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates (flour and sugar or high fructose corn syrup-based products) as well as omega 6 fatty acids, while increasing your intake of omega 3s. And of course calorie restriction tends to increase longevity as well. It’s never too late to get in the zone; you’re only one meal away, after all.

Rank #14: 27 – The practice of living consciously

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 18:29)

It’s crucial to turn the searchlight of consciousness inward

Not acting on what one sees and knows is not living consciously

Most human beings are unfortunately sleep-walking through their existence

Noticing and confronting impulses and seeing and correcting mistakes are vital conscious practices

Paying attention to new information includes the possibility for growth

Having an active mind is central to living consciously

Our genes are adapted to a paleolithic lifestyle, in which high carb eating was practically nowhere in sight

The process of living consciously leads to making the best choices

Having an earnest intention to be conscious is key to self-esteem and living the good life

Others may discourage you from living consciously, but you are ultimately responsible for lowering your awareness

It’s important to pay attention to what you’re doing when you particularly like yourself and when you don’t

Rank #15: 98 – Choices to be healthy

Podcast cover

(duration 24:29)In this episode we discuss keeping healthy during such candy-laden times as Halloween. Dark chocolate and coconut shavings “toasted” in either butter or coconut oil are great alternatives. Since we live in a culture that doesn’t wholeheartedly embrace healthy lifestyles, it can be challenging to navigate social relations. Once again, nonviolent communication, which entails connecting with feelings and needs, really assists in this process with both self and others. A good nutritional rule of thumb is to aim for less than a hundred grams of carbs per day for optimal health–and make sure you get enough sound sleep! It turns out that you can eat Primal on the cheap; if you have a tight budget, it’s not necessary to get “grass-fed” meat or “organic” this or that in order to eat Primal and dramatically improve your health.

Self-acceptance is something you do: the refusal to be in an adversarial relationship with yourself

The Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Branden http://www.nathanielbranden.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_23&products_id=35

It’s important to be present to the reality of your behavior, paying attention to internal signals

Accepting doesn’t necessarily mean liking, enjoying, or condoning; denial leaves you stuck, whereas acceptance allows you to move on

Showing compassion for yourself is important; really feeling your feelings is crucial

Surrendering to the reality of what is, to your awareness, is the crux of self-acceptance

Self-acceptance basically means coming to terms with your emotions

If self-acceptance feels impossible, then accept your resistance, or if needed, accept your resistance to accepting your resistance

Acceptance of what is, is the precondition for change

Rank #17: 39 – Healthy confidence and optimal lifestyle eating

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 23:27)

We discuss a mix of things in this show, starting with my recent experience with food poisoning (wasn’t pretty) and Kevin’s July 4th holiday foodstuff experiences. Confidence comes with being aligned with what’s healthy and good for you and being able to achieve your values in life. And confidence in how you look ought to be a reflection of doing what’s healthy for your body (unlike what the endeavoring-to-be-1000-pounds woman believes). Basically, everyone can be physically fit and healthy. A couple listener questions involved, first, why low carb/high fat/adequate protein eating is good for you, no matter if you already are your perfect weight (based on the insulin factor), in addition to some pitfalls with grains and potentially with dairy and, second, the relative merits of the grain-like seed quinoa. Also, Dr. Weil comes clean and admits that saturated fat is ok and that carbs are detrimental, giving a strong nod to the keen investigational research of science writer Gary Taubes.

In this episode we explore the fifth pillar of self-esteem, which is about intention, goal-setting, and productive achievement

The Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Branden http://www.nathanielbranden.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_23&products_id=35

You don’t want to leave any significant part of your life to chance! Live and act by intention

It’s important assess your goals and your progress, and then keep reassessing in order to stay on track

Ernestine Shepherd, a fit-body inspiration in her 70s!

http://abcnews.go.com/us/video/elderly-weightlifter-10481362&tab=9482931&section=4765066

Having sub-purposes and sub-action-plans is part of the process of goal-fulfillment

There are no shortcuts to self-esteem and a fit body

Being disciplined in the right ways is key to health and fitness

The internal process of setting goals and achieving them is what truly enables achievement–and ensures self-esteem

You are not here to live up to others’ expectations

Living purposefully is about living happily, which includes setting reachable goals and having realistic expectations about yourself

Rank #19: 73 – Complaining effectively with psychologist Guy Winch, part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

(duration 41:43)
This is the first half of our interview with psychologist Guy Winch, author of a new book titled, “The Squeaky Wheel: Complaining the Right Way to Get Results, Improve Your Relationships and Enhance Self-Esteem.” We explore the various psychological aspects of complaining. Going on rants and venting to others who aren’t in a position to resolve our complaints may be emotionally useful at times, yet they and things like “complaints choirs” tend to fall short of effective complaining.

Attitudes of helplessness, hopelessness, and pessimism practically guarantee ineffective complaining, while thinking optimistically, and especially addressing the proper person, practically guarantee getting your complaints resolved. Being persistent and methodical helps a great deal in the complaining process too. Excessive complaining, however ineffective, tends to reflect a victimized mindset that reinforces itself and fosters feelings of disempowerment and defeat. Hostility, blaming, and criticism usually generate defensiveness in the other person and represent ineffective complaining–whereas showing empathy, understanding the other person’s context, as well as reframing your own emotional state, represent effective complaining. To be continued next week…

(duration 24:35)

In this show we discuss an eclectic mix of topics, starting with the best way to eat Mexican food and what sort of carb-to-protein ratio is optimal. Kevin offers a great hmfb salad (patent pending;) that includes grass-fed beef. We cover the problems with various carbs, not eating an adequate breakfast or greens, or being properly hydrated. Black tea has its health benefits too. Finally, we cover a couple listener emails dealing with the deleterious nature of grains and particular exercise equipment to maintain strength and fitness, as well as my ingenious method for eating blueberries with almond butter (gleaned from a chimp technique:).
