(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.

(duration 23:43) The seventh and last inner critic we discuss is the inner controller, which tries to control various impulses and choices that might lead to ill effects, although it lacks trust in one’s biological drives and desires. The inner controller tends to use harsh strictures and even shaming tactics, which are indicative of developmental trauma that hasn’t been effectively processed. Raising awareness of this critic’s childhood origins assists in challenging the assumption that one is flawed and can’t do kind and caring things for oneself. Various domination systems that undermine self-reliance, choice, trust, and self-responsibility can be challenged as well. We need to orient towards compassionate understanding in order to heal parts such as this, which entails reflecting on unmet needs from tragic strategies.

(duration 18:39) This time we discuss the kind of inner critic known as the taskmaster, which tries to keep one from being considered mediocre or lazy. It fears failure and thus pushes more and more, and it becomes a lot to live up to, sacrificing needs for ease, comfort, relaxation, inner peace, as well as humor. Finding healthy balance in achieving things is key. We need to understanding the genesis of the taskmaster in childhood, when parents might’ve distrusted one’s own decision-making process, bossed one around, and sent messages about being “less-than,” or unworthy. We need to be aware of these developmental aspects of how our need for self-esteem can go unmet, as well as how to heal by gaining a new perspective about our capability and worthiness for happiness. Developing a contemplative and self-empathetic mind set can give rise to the saying, “Don’t just do something. Sit there.” :)

(duration 19:45) In this episode we delve into the nature of the inner critic called the molder, which is formed early on in our minds, attempting to keep us from being abandoned, punished, shamed and shunned. The rules of authoritarian systems (be they in families, religions, schools, or governments) coupled with the punishment model tend to perpetuate the molder within us. Being a rebel or a free spirit can be a reaction to the molder’s injunctions about conforming to societal standards. Contradictions about the self are common in our culture. So, coming to terms with our true nature, which entails embracing our enlightened self-interest and needs-fulfillment, is vital to the processes of individuation and independent self-expression. This thereby fosters more integrated ways of being with ourselves and others, based on standards that don’t conflict with our true nature.

(duration 18:42) In this episode we cover the nature of the inner critic identified as the destroyer. We can tragically internalize severe judgments against our self-worth early in life, in family and cultural systems. And this can lead to self-destructive behaviors and nihilism, as well as actions destructive of others and property. Internally, we can be engaged in a battle with the destroyer in an attempt to quell it, which can contribute to cycles of conflict with self and others. In contrast, when we shift to a perspective to empathy, understanding, and love, we can compassionately connect with the wounds of the past and work to resolve the self-esteem deficit of this inner critic. The following sentence stems might be helpful (try to provide 6-8 endings)…

If I were motivated by a belief that it’s safe to exist…
If I believe that it’s safer to exist than not to exist…
If I can honor my self-worth, even when a part of me doesn’t want to…
As I learn to understand the part of me that doesn’t honor myself…

(duration 20:35) In this episode we explore the nature of the underminer, a major aspect of inner critic that directly diminishes self-confidence and self-respect, detracting from a sense of efficacy and worth. Self-trust gets undermined in the process too, and this is fostered by various domination systems, which question our worthiness, don’t honor our choices, and detract from our inner well-being. Children in families and schools tend to internalize these detrimental processes. Being able to tolerate judgment or failure becomes much more difficult, since the underminer views oneself as “less than,” or not good enough. All this tends to be rooted in shame, which undermines one’s capabilities for growth and joyful, purposeful action.

Taking action-oriented steps to achieve objectives can counter the underminer’s influence. The falsehood in its messages about self can be recognized and understood as not helpful. Early experiences that undermined self-esteem need not be perpetuated in adulthood. They can be reflected on with compassion, leading to much healthier integrations about oneself.

(duration 23:07) In this episode we delve into the nature of the guilt-tripper, the kind of inner critic that tends to say such things as “You should have done that, instead of this!” or “You shouldn’t have done that—what were you thinking!” This internalized aspect of conditional parenting seeks to keep us informed about how our choices and actions don’t live up to certain expectations or demands. Guilt, which involves moralistic judgment, relates to shame as well: The guilt-oriented notion that one did something “wrong” or “bad” lends itself to thinking of oneself as “wrong” or “bad,” for why would a “good” person do such a “bad” thing?

Nonviolent, or compassionate, communication educates us that blaming and shaming take us away from genuine feelings of remorse or regret, which can be constructively processed via helpful strategies that make amends and restore sacrificed needs. Being aware of new choices in the present assists in taking more life-enriching actions. Unfortunately, domination systems in our culture (such as the legal system) train us to think in terms of guilt or innocence, with punishments and rewards doled out accordingly. In this process we can lose an important sense of freedom. So, developing a compassionate, empathetic understanding of the distrustful roots of the guilt-tripper can help us heal this part. Here are a few sentence stems to provide 6-10 endings for:

If I were to feel free around food, I might…
If it turns out that I don’t have to guilt-trip myself in order to nourish my mind and body…
If I can grow out of this guilt-tripping dynamic, I might…
If blaming and shaming are tragic expressions of unmet needs…

(duration 15:24) As we explore various “inner critics,” we’re basically identifying parts that represent aspects of unhealed developmental trauma. In this episode we cover the voice of the perfectionist, which sets oftentimes unreasonable standards and expectations that don’t allow us to live freely with creative ease and peace of mind. Even though doing something “perfectly” is seen in our culture as doing the absolute best, this can overlook unhealthy emotional aspects, such as undue stress, anxiety, self-judgment, and of course the aftermath of diminished self-worth when expectations aren’t met.

Our self-worth need not depend on the “perfection” of our various life processes. Commonly, empathy and attunement to self-worth get overlooked by parents and other “authority” figures and, then, by ourselves when we internalize their critical judgments. The notion of perfect functioning as human beings means to honor our fallible nature. To honor our processes of making mistakes and correcting them means that they become less of a big deal, which reflects self-acceptance and self-trust. Here are a few sentence stems to provide 6-10 endings for:

If I can strive to do my best without being perfect, I might…
If I didn’t have to be perfect, I might…
Perfection to me means…

(duration 19:27) This is the beginning of our series about the “inner critic,” wherein we delve into the various facets of this internal dialogue, which essentially lacks self-acceptance, self-compassion, and self-love. Different kinds of inner critic have been distinguished based on their patterns. Understanding their nature in relation to the nature of the self assists in gaining a healthy perspective. We explore those categorized by therapist Jay Early, who noted seven types: perfectionist; guilt-tripper; underminer; destroyer; molder; taskmaster; and, inner controller. Of course, there are developmental reasons for these critics, even though they come with sizable costs, which we’ll comprehend in upcoming episodes.

(duration 23:33) We return from an extended summer hiatus to discuss the nature of unconditional love and unconditional self-love. The internal dialogue with ourselves needs explicit attention and understanding, in order to become more integrated and loving. What does it mean to put conditions on love, and what does forgiveness mean—and how does this relate to self-love? Imagine a world in which children’s self-worth is unconditionally accepted, which means that their persons are honored for who they truly are, without judgment of good or bad, or right or wrong. Now, imagine having your child-self treated with unconditional love. This is a process you can cultivate within yourself, so that you learn to treat yourself with kindness and compassion.

In this episode we discuss the nature of habits and how we can formulate enriching strategies that can last a lifetime.

This entails learning how to meet needs without the usual costs or sacrifices.

This is our third and last part in our series covering the mental aspects that lead to life transformations. We’ll be exploring much more of these aspects in our new course called Burn Fat For Life.

hmfbpostpicIn this final episode (yes, we’re ending at the century mark), we share some of our stories abroad, such as coconuts and natural pedestrian movement in Vietnam. ;) We cover some of the highlights over the past few years, as well as some typical flawed messages from the mainstream, such as the DASH diet. Salt is not really the demon that we’ve been advised to avoid, but a rather important mineral for healthy functioning–same goes for fat; the widespread fat phobia (or phat fobia;) is terribly unfortunate. Self-knowledge via self-esteem principles and the process of connecting with feelings and needs (nonviolent communication) will enable you to really improve your health and enrich your life. Thanks for listening and for being part of our journey. Best wishes to you all, and make sure to follow your bliss. =)

(duration 36:57)itunes_podcast_iconSylviaEBCIn this show we talk with nonviolent communication (NVC) trainer Sylvia about her book and experiences helping individuals relate to themselves and others in life-enriching ways. Instead of playing the blame game (which can become never-ending), NVC focuses on the quality of the connection in order to empathize and get needs met. Sometimes food can be used as a strategy to try to fulfill some other need (yet to be discovered). Mindfulness brings choice, a vital need. It’s helpful to connect compassionately with your inner voice(s) (especially your “inner critic”), so you can overcome costly strategies. In the face of demands (both inner- and outer-), we sometimes try to meet our need for autonomy in tragic ways. This presents an opportunity to bring more awareness to your inner dialogue, be best friends with yourself, and embrace better strategies.

(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.

Then, we discuss how to “chew the juice,” based on Kev’s visit to a vegan/raw food meeting. While you can definitely get lots of extra micronutrients from veggies (whether juiced or not), you also need fats and animal proteins for optimal health. Olive oil is great for salads, btw. Lastly, we explore some important research on self-compassion especially regarding weight loss. Self-esteem is an overarching need that entails self-acceptance and self-compassion. If we don’t think and feel well of ourselves, it makes our decisions, among other things, much more difficult. Stay tuned for our new self-acceptance course!

(duration 41:55)With our guest Ashley Tudor, we explore the ins and outs of the splendid root known as the sweet potato, often called “yams” in grocery stores (which is a misnomer because yam is actually a different, much less nutritious species and a tuber not a root). Sweet potatoes are a helpful addition to an athlete’s dietary regimen, offering extra carbs for training without the extra fructose that comes with fruit. And contrary to popular opinion, grains are not great. It’s important to beware the harmful effects of overtraining, as well as of extra carbs, even if they’re from sweet potatoes. Benign dietary ketosis (burning fat exclusively) is fine, though as in any regimen, it’s important to pay attention to your body’s signals. Sweet potatoes can be cooked and consumed in lots of ways, not just baked (check out Ashley’s book for recipes:). It helps to quantify yourself in terms of getting baseline readings and optimizing your health; e.g., a glucometer can be a useful addition. Also, treat your body well in terms of reducing stress and maintaining a good sleep cycle.

(duration 25:21)In this show we delve into the process of binging on carbs, as noted in a recent study. In an all-too-common practice, people reach for the carbs to deal with their hunger and cravings, rather than relying on healthy fat as their main energy source. The key is to keep yourself satiated with various fats such as coconut and palm and olive oils, all sorts of nuts and butters, instead of sugars and grains. Veggies and fruits are an important compliment to your fats and protein. We also discussed the nature of the “perfect” body and optimal health. Rather than pursue some unrealistic standard of perfection, have a standard based on the reality of your ideal body fat percentage and a happy mindset. Self-acceptance is key.

(duration 29:58)In this show we discuss a trip to the grocery store, providing some insights regarding such things as coconut milk, meats, and peanut butter. As far as vegetables go, studies have shown that they’ve declined in micronutrient content over the last few decades. So, don’t skimp on them and preferably look for slightly healthier versions at farmers’ markets. In the grand scheme of weight loss, though, nearly any veggies will be beneficial (as opposed to processed foods), and there’s more need to focus on less carbs and healthy fats. More nutrients can be gotten from many vegetables when they are cooked (e.g., steamed, boiled, or microwaved).

We discuss Kevin’s return to cool SoCal from hot and humid Asia. Apparently, traveling in developing countries can be a way to lose weight, whether or not one wants to! Lots of heat, walking, and small portions can take their toll. So, getting more protein and fat (and some carbs from sweet potatoes), as well as strength training, is now on Kev’s agenda. Both weight gain and weight loss can entail self-acceptance and self-image issues. Using a feeding tube (as in the case of the “K-E Diet”) as a substitute for psychological understanding can of course be costly. Caloric restriction (w/ optimal nutrition) might have anti-aging and health benefits, yet this needs to be balanced with overall well-being and a pleasurable life. Probably our best bet for extending our life-spans involves bio-tech innovations that target the main factors in aging, such as what Aubrey de Grey proposes (http://sens.org).

In this show, we discuss the fine art of eating healthily while traveling abroad. Kevin relates his ongoing experiences in southeast Asia, where there’s hot food and hot climate! He’s noticed lots of junk food and soda that people are consuming, especially tourists. The widespread consumption of rice is probably the least harmful grain, although there’s not much nutrition in it–just extra carbs (aka, cheap filler). Coconut is once again a very healthy choice (especially the oil and milk in curry), as opposed to oh-so sweet banana pancakes! Walking and pushups and other resistance training are helpful to stay in shape while on the go.

(duration 26:26)In this show (sans Kev) I cover various questions from podcast listeners and our responses to them. Some take-aways: Go for full-fat coconut milk; If you cut your carb intake, you’re doing your body a world of good; although you can live without carbs but some are still useful to consume via fruits and veggies; isocaloric studies demonstrate that insulin secretion–not calories–is the main factor in fat gain, maintenance, and loss; when cooking your food (especially with fat) avoid using really high heat, as it can cause formation of harmful compounds; fat is your friend for meeting your health and energy needs; when you feel impatient about your weight loss process, or encounter others who frown upon your lifestyle changes, it’s helpful to use nonviolent communication to address feelings and needs and develop more life-enriching strategies. :)

In this show we discuss our experience at an LAfuturists meeting, where Aubrey de Grey gave a presentation on strategies for engineering negligible senescence and the necessary steps to achieving longevity escape velocity. Basically, much more funding of research is needed. Then, we also cover a pretty thorough article in the msm about why Americans are overweight. Excess carbs, especially in the forms of sugar/corn syrup and grain/flour-based products, are the main culprit. Will power only works for so long, so the key is to make lasting mental and lifestyle changes.

This show we cover a mix of things, starting with the stats on long-lived people in Japan. It turns out that many centenarians and super centenarians might not be alive! We share our thoughts about the aging process and maximizing one’s potential. Some Japanese relatives seem to be working the governmental welfare system. Speaking of “the system,” we cover some of the USDA’s newest guidelines for school lunches. Contrary to dietary dogma, dairy without fat is less healthy than dairy with fat. Consumption of dairy products may or may not be advisable; it varies across individuals (e.g., those lactose intolerant). Keep in mind that milk contains more carbs as well. Lastly, we cover a report about two rat/mouse studies showing that high-fat chow led to hypothalamic inflammation. Yet another example of research that unfortunately bolsters fat-phobia in our culture. See the purportedly non-inflammatory rat chow link below if you’re curious about its ingredients.

We finish our discussion with Sonia about increased longevity, starting with innovation via the benefits of free market dynamics. We also explore various ways to get involved in the anti-aging movement, including the do-it-yourself bio-community. Strategies for Engineering Negligible Senescence is a main organization involved in solving the problem of aging. Will humans be able to not only stop the aging process, but also reverse the damage that aging has wrought? Maybe, and repair of various damage looks promising, given advances in stem cell research, gene therapy, nanomedicine, etc. Various costly mythologies in our culture, which take our focus off individual flourishing, will eventually give way to a more life-enriching, wondrous, and prosperous future for ourselves and humanity in general.

(duration 27:19)In this episode we discuss the book “100 Plus: How the Coming Age of Longevity Will Change Everything, From Careers and Relationships to Family and Faith” with its author, Sonia Arrison. Humans are constantly using technology to change their lives, and this includes extending our lifespans and healthspans. How long would you like to live? This is the question for each of us, as innovation continues. Unfortunately, humans have typically sold themselves short in the realm of longevity. Advances in computers and their application in bioinformatics (e.g., in genomics and proteomics) will continue to prove invaluable in the quest to understand and finally deal with aging. Stem cell and nanomedical technologies will prove key as well. Extended lifespans won’t necessarily mean unsustainable populations and destroyed ecosystems, because humans can be quite resourceful beings. :)

(duration 31:25)In this show we discuss the nature of the controversy about carb consumption among Paleo-style eaters in relation to health and longevity. Some have challenged the idea that Paleo is low-carb as well as the claim that insulin (via excess carbs) is the main culprit in fat gain. So, we explore the nature of insulin once again to dispel the myths surrounding macronutrient calories. The bottom line is that eating fewer grams of carbs per day–thus secreting less insulin–will have positive effects on your fat-burning as well as your long term heath. Perhaps the main misunderstanding, about for instance Gary Taubes’ insulin and fat loss claims, stems from the fact that excess carbs are necessary for fat accumulation, but sometimes not sufficient (depending on your genes). Rigorous scientific investigation is a difficult process, and confirmation bias tends to be an easy process, unfortunately. Keeping tabs on your blood readings is important, especially if you plan on doing an n=1 study on yourself. Needless to say, we’re not in favor of eating 30 bananas a day, or 20 mangos!

After discussing a recent cruise and the nature of the foods onboard, we delve into the parallel needs for self-responsibility and independent thinking in the realms of nutrition and political philosophy. Being major advocates of freedom, we discuss the nature of “government,” particularly its inherent rights-violating and propagandistic ways, which don’t serve the interests of individuals. The corporate food and nutrition industries tend to use the coercive tools of government to promote their own agendas, which aren’t so healthy for individuals either. Fortunately, health care will eventually be based on self-reliance and free market services, not a top-down, hierarchical system at odds with personal choice, property rights, and prosperity. Same goes for children’s education, where intrinsic motivation (rather than external control) is essential for growth and flourishing. Speaking of which, be sure to check out the upcoming PaleoFX Theory to Practice Symposium.

(duration 20:35)In this episode we start off discussing chocolate and then examine the nutritional nature of the lawsuit against Nutella. The typical “breakfast foods” that are promoted and consumed tend to have an overabundance of carbohydrates, especially in the form of grains and sugars (such as fruit juices). Nuts and at least 70% dark chocolate rock! The 2011 CrossFit Games were a tour de force in high intensity routines; simply amazing, yet we need to be wary of the high cortisol levels downside. Short, high intensity workouts are great, but overtraining isn’t conducive to health and longevity. Finally, congratulations to low-carber interviewer extraordinaire Jimmy Moore, who celebrated his 500th podcast episode last September.

(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. ;)

(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.

(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.

This episode we discuss briefly the film Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead and the costly perspective of “living the good life” while having an unhealthy lifestyle. We don’t need to just roll the genetic (and environmental) dice in relation to health and fitness; we can take informed steps in the realm of nutrition and lifestyle in order to maximize our health and longevity. The 2011 Ancestral Health Symposium at UCLA brought together many individuals who are dedicated to human vitality and the knowledge and practices of how to ensure it. The loss of muscle mass over time (sarcopenia) can be counteracted through weight or resistance training, which can be performed up to your last year (or week) of life!

In this episode Kevin addresses a couple listener emails dealing with implementing the healthy mind fit body lifestyle. Communicating feelings and needs in a compassionate way will help get your and others’ needs met and resolve conflicts. Nutrition needs to be given priority over particular types of exercise in order to achieve fat loss, and of course “chronic cardio” is our least favorite form of training. Strength training is a great complement to your lower carb, higher fat and protein eating regimen. Try to check out this summer’s Ancestral Health Symposium in LA!

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!

In this show we delve into a couple listener questions regarding the transition to a healthier dietary lifestyle. What do you with your carb/junk food “cravings”? The main task involves viewing your feelings and food choices as part of your psychology, and thus within your control. For one, it’s important to find alternatives that are both healthier and just as tasty as your not-so-healthy food choices. Second, we recommend a couple powerful psychological methods (nonviolent communication and sentence completion exercises) to reorient your way of dealing with food, which will help you come to better terms with your own emotions and choices.

Our new bonus program, Defeat Your Cheat Days, entails effectively dealing with psychological patterns and altering habits acquired since childhood for meeting your needs; and this entails developing compassion for your child-self and becoming your own best friend. The 5-day sentence completion program will help you acquire the self-knowledge and motivation needed for optimal functioning in this realm. We provide more details in our email newsletter (http://freefitnessaudio.com) as well as at http://getyourperfectweight.com

74 – Complaining effectively with psychologist Guy Winch, part 2 http://healthymindfitbody.com/2011/06/20/74-complaining-effectively-with-psychologist-guy-winch-part-2/ Mon, 20 Jun 2011 17:31:29 +0000 http://healthymindfitbody.com/?p=1698 http://healthymindfitbody.com/2011/06/20/74-complaining-effectively-with-psychologist-guy-winch-part-2/#comments http://healthymindfitbody.com/2011/06/20/74-complaining-effectively-with-psychologist-guy-winch-part-2/feed/ 2 (duration 34:20) This is the second 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... (duration 34:20)

This is the second 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 start off by discussing effective complaining, which includes the components of the “complaint sandwich.” This includes the ear-opener, the content, and the digestive. Starting with something pleasant is important, because it creates a genuine connection. The content of the complaint should be only about one specific incident, without any criticism (no global assessments or impugning of character). The digestive entails a request that invokes resolution in a positive way, thus maintaining the connection.

Research shows that men need to focus on maintaining eye contact and women need to match the communication flow, so that more effective complaining can happen between couples. Constant complaining entails a theme of victimization, as the person seeks sympathy. Criticism (such as accusations, generalizations, and character slams) can be dealt with effectively, i.e., turned into valid complaints, by not taking things personally, and instead focusing on specifics that can be resolved. Parents need to step off the “demand/withdraw Merry-go-round” with their tweens/teens, by maintaining a flow of mutual interest and sharing, coupled with complaint sandwiches. Taking charge of getting your needs met through effective complaining enables your health and wellness and fosters better interactions in your personal life and in the marketplace.

(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…

This show we covered some listener emails. The first dealt with the topic of fiber; do we need it and can we get enough in our diet. Adequate amounts of insoluble and soluble fiber can be found vegetables (such as broccoli and cauliflower), fruits (such as berries), and nuts. Another listener related vast improvements in many aspects of her health and a renewed zest for staying fit (having stepped off the calorie-counting and exercise deadmill). The last email noted the junk food ills of the public school system; a lack of nutrients and an overabundance of carbs don’t help kids’ physical and mental conditions. Thanks for writing, everyone! Stay tuned for an upcoming helpful addition to our hmfb package as well as another interview for the next show.

(duration 23:53)This is part two of our two-part interview with author Diana Spechler, author of Skinny, her latest novel. We pick up our discussion regarding body image issues, particularly being dissociated from certain feelings and disconnected from the process of binging. Increasing your awareness is a necessary but not sufficient condition for moderating your eating. Having nutritional knowledge is vital, as is motivation to treat your body as your temple. We also discuss some letters “To fat people” in the book. Becoming comfortable with being overweight yet being advised to exercise more and eat the same foods that made you overweight (just smaller portions) indeed reflect our confusing food culture. Secreting less insulin by eating fewer grams of carbs daily enables your fat stores to be metabolized. Hunger and desire oftentimes pose motivation challenges, in which issues of control and self-control arise.

This is part one of our two-part interview with author Diana Spechler, author of Skinny, her latest novel. We begin by discussing the nature of body image issues. As we noted a couple shows ago, various psychological patterns can be found on bodyconfession.com, one of Diana’s sites. Mental inertia can be self-sabotaging, of course, so self-acceptance (owning various disowned parts of yourself) is key to understanding where you are and getting to where you want to be. Intergenerational transfer of eating patterns from parents (and extended family) to children is common, and one solution is to stock your shelves with healthy choices. “Fat camps” seem to be quick fixes and typically offer programs that are based on calorie-counting rather than a healthy mental perspective on foods and taking into account the insulin factor in weight gain/loss. Articulating and understanding our emotions is another key to developing a healthy self-concept and beneficial eating habits.

In this episode we explore the topic of sex, specifically its health benefits, both physically and mentally. Hormones such as oxytocin and DHEA are fostered in the process. Immune and longevity benefits are also noted. It’s important that sex be integrated with the mental side of things for optimal benefits to be derived. Sharing your sexuality with someone you value can bring about the fulfillment of other needs, such as romantic love. Thus, psychological visibility (reflecting your values) becomes a main factor in seeing sex as spectacular and an important component of the happiness of which you are worthy. Sex can evoke powerful emotions, of course, which can result in cultural mores proscribing and prohibiting its expression (and even discussion), which doesn’t help kids understand and develop a healthy view of human sexuality. Going low-carb/Paleo may augment your sex drive, as will fitness/strength training.

(duration 26:17)

In this show we discuss  various psychological patterns in body image issues found on bodyconfession.com, a new site by Diana Spechler, whom we’ll be interviewing in a few weeks about her upcoming novel. Body image is affected adversely by comparison contests in your mind. Self-acceptance–i.e., owning those disowned parts of yourself–is key, as is correct nutritional and fitness information. For instance, cravings for sweets can be dealt with by eating a piece of dark chocolate or healthy fruit and even adding stevia, rather than eating cupcakes (or name your high-carb poison). To cultivate trust in being able to treat your body well is to also honor your self-worth, actualizing your potential as an expressive, joyful, and playful person. Also, if you examine your feelings as stemming from unmet needs, you can devise life-enriching strategies to get all your needs met. Ultimately, “Nothing tastes as good as feeling good about yourself.” :)

(duration 32:21)In this episode we explore the nature of the interview with Gary Taubes on The Dr. Oz show, set up on account of Taubes’ latest book, Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. While Dr. Oz tends to promote the mainstream dogma about diet and exercise, Taubes was able to provide the evidence-based viewpoint that he writes about in his informative books and articles. Ultimately, being invested in the nutritional status quo can foster straw-man arguments that keep one locked in a position that’s not so life-enriching. Making health and fitness changes need not be a threat to one’s self-worth, but rather a new opportunity for self-growth and for helping others.

(duration 24:12)This show we start out with a discussion of natural movement from my recent hiking experiences, and then we delve into an article by SciAm about behaviors that do and don’t contribute to weight loss. It’s important to find foods that are tasty substitutes for the not-so-healthy foods we typically grew up eating; that way, counterproductive “cheat days” become less attractive. As far as making your healthy changes stick, getting support from others can be helpful, yet the task of developing more inner awareness is always an individual affair. And this entails resolving emotional conflicts and aligning your present behaviors with your long-term goals. Once again, optimal health is achieved through the mind/body integration process.

In this show we discuss some of my new experiences in the Land Down Under and then touch on the six pillars of self-esteem by psychologist Nathaniel Branden. We address some of the six pillars, particularly in relation to a listener’s email, which shares her healthy mind fit body experiences amidst a culture that is not so inclined to health and fitness. Ultimately, the best way to inspire others is to present an example of optimal functioning to others and thus pique their interest about the process of achieving a healthy mind and fit body.

In this show we discuss the nature of the HCG diet, why it’s a fad and what the scientific research says. Rather than going the quick-fix route, which in this case entails eating only 500 calories a day, go for what’s really healthy for you in the long term. You can’t go wrong with Paleo (no grains, legumes, and dairy), but any significant reduction in carb consumption (and corresponding increase in fat consumption) will have positive effects on fat loss and your blood readings. What’s beneficial for you (not excess carbs) should be in line with your long term values of health, vitality, and longevity.

(duration 28:59)

We address the psychological topic of dealing with mental and behavioral changes, especially in relation to those who don’t want to give up their favorite comfort foods, which are typically some form of unhealthy carbs. We explore our newsletter post covering this topic, as well as a listener’s response to it, who relates her stories about dealing with the unhealthy eating habits of her patients and co-workers at a hospital. We read some choice quotes from a motivational book titled As A Man Thinketh by James Allen, which was written over a hundred years ago. Become a “master gardener” of your own mind; understand your own power to change your life course and make firm commitments to lifestyle changes. Also, it’s extremely helpful to compassionately connect with feelings and needs in relation to making changes. For instance, when someone is feeling fearful or reticent or dismissive of a healthy message, acknowledge those feelings and understand various unmet needs that might give rise to them, via nonviolent communication. This will tend to dissolve antagonism and place the focus on what truly matters, which is adopting life-enriching strategies to get one’s needs met.

In this show we explore the facets of Sarah’s transition to Paleo nutrition, her upcoming book, and her focus on health and fitness while maintaining a busy lifestyle and family with three boys. Motivation is key, especially determining what you’re going for (or what you’re chasing), putting your goals into perspective; just showing up for a workout may be a good goal initially. And, for those concerned with getting the family on board with Paleo foods, with the various Paleo recipes that Sarah presents, kids will leave very few left-overs! It’s vital to keep your priorities in line to ensure a happy life as well as practicing honesty with yourself and others. Also, restaurant eating can be done selectively, though not recommended for everyday healthy eating. Btw, the ultimate Paleo kitchen instrument is the pressure cooker! Don’t forget that you can choose from myriad herbs and spices for your tasty dishes.

In this show, we relate the recent injuries and hospitalization of our close friends and discuss the nature of hospitalization, things to watch out for–such as superbugs–and things to try to avoid, such as CT scans, physical exams, circumcision, C-sections, and antibiotics (unless your life depends on them, of course). In turn, your focus on optimal mental and physical functioning is key for a happy and long life–hopefully a greatly extended one! Getting the impediments of government out of the way will enable much more innovation and accountability in health care and medical research. Oh, and eggs–with yolks–are great to eat (don’t accept the cholesterol myth).

In this show, we explore some expert opinions from the mainstream about the ills of carbs, which indicate that the high-carb/low-fat diet dogma is starting to be dispelled. Yet the notion that there are “good” and “bad” carbs still persists, such as whole grains (allegedly good) and refined grains (allegedly bad). Actually, lower amounts of carbs from fruits and veggies are much more nutritious than carbs from grains, breads and cereals (not to mention from sweets). Artificial sweeteners are better than sugary sweeteners, but beware habitually consuming “candy cigarettes.” Make sure not to overdo the carbs with dried fruit too.

In this second half of our discussion of the role insulin plays in fat storage, we cover the last two posts on the weightology.net blog that dispute insulin’s role. Guest Stephanie Murphy again joins us to explore some more of the biochemistry involved, including cell glucose channels and receptors. One of the main controversies seems to be whether insulin is mostly inhibitory or excitatory in nature; we side with the latter, i.e., that insulin is mostly a fat storage hormone (resulting from excess carb consumption). Additionally, insulin adversely affects blood lipid levels, among other systemic issues. Trying to lose weight in the way most “authorities” in the mainstream recommend (low fat/ high carb) is an uphill battle, physically (hormonally) and psychologically. We again conclude that relatively high insulin secretion is detrimental not only to body fat accumulation (for most people), but also to overall health and longevity.

In this show, guest and friend Stephanie Murphy joins us to address a series of posts on the weightology.net blog that dispute the insulin factor in weight management. Stephanie’s academic background is in biochemistry and she’s currently in the midst of her MD/PhD program at Dartmouth. In this first half of our discussion, we explore the nature of insulin and glucose metabolism. Contrary to weightology.net’s claims, relatively high insulin secretion is detrimental not only to body fat accumulation (for most people), but also to overall health and longevity. A high carb eating regimen causes relatively more insulin secretion, which tends to suppress the immune system and contribute to a cascade of hormonal changes involving inflammation–thus, a higher risk of chronic diseases.

In this show, we address some of the myths surrounding foods and eating during the holiday season. From gaining weight to so-called food “comas,” the primary culprit is over-doing the carbs, not simply the portion sizes. Beware the marshmallow toppings and all the other sweets, which can really throw off your carbs-to-protein and fat ratios. As during the rest of the year, you want to be burning fat for energy, not carbs. Eating mindfully is one major key to this process, particularly in social situations with not-so-encouraging or knowledgeable influences. Being an independent thinker is crucial in this age of all kinds of dogmatism.

In this show, we follow up with last week’s episode discussing the junk food diet and calories. We also explore excessive calorie consumption in relation to Adam, the host of Man v. Food on the Travel Channel. Needless to say, “getting the t-shirt” takes a toll on the body. Did paleo humans eat low-carb? By today’s SAD (Standard American Diet) standards, yes, even though some ate moderate carb diets (~40% of calories). So, should we go on a snack-food diet in order to prove it’s bad effects? We conclude no, as we address a listener’s points, one of which was for us to increase our caloric intake to see if we’d gain body fat and adversely affect blood readings. Fortunately, such studies have been done (clinical and controlled, not just anecdotal), showing the beneficial effects of what Atkins noted as “metabolic advantage.” In other words, as long as your insulin secretion remains low (as a result of eating low carb), increasing fat intake will typically not cause increases in body fat. The same can’t be said for most people who increase their carb intake, since those extra carbs will tend to be stored as fat and kept there, courtesy of insulin.

In this show, we discuss the controversy over the so-called junk food (or twinkie or snack-cake) diet done by Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University. What looms large in this news item is the calorie theory of weight loss, which has been invalidated by the clinical and empirical evidence, yet it continues to be promoted as the primary way to understand weight loss. We suspect Haub lost weight and his blood lipid profiles improved because he lowered his carbohydrate intake, not because he lowered his caloric intake per se. (As science journalist Gary Taubes noted in his very well-researched book Good Calories Bad Calories, the hormone insulin is the main factor in obesity and weight loss.) Also, it’s vital to note that Haub’s health could have been improved considerably more by eating in a low-carb/paleo/primal way, thus lowering his blood insulin levels, than by consuming junk food. So, should we go on a snack-food diet in order to prove it’s bad effects? ;) While we don’t recommend it for anyone who’s concerned about their health, at some point better nutritional information will generate a demand for better food choices in the marketplace.

(duration 39:26)

In this episode, Kevin interviews fitness enthusiast and trainer Keith Norris, and they discuss the motivational aspects of peak performance and many of the finer points of maintaining a fit body and healthy lifestyle. For example, in order to ensure that you get your workouts, train in the morning or schedule an appointed time, which you’ll be less likely to let slide. Keith’s idea of “Physical Culture high life” entails realizing and experiencing the positive mental components and mind/body integration benefits of physical training, such as high intensity interval workouts. The ability to focus and the ability to apply intensity are two keys to fitness psychology (“brief, brutal, and basic,” as Keith says). Learning to “listen to your body” is also an important aspect of your overall wellness. Our knowledge of exercise science is ever-expanding, and implementing reasonable rules of thumb instead of meticulously calculating things helps to keep everything in perspective and serve your well-being. You are “an experiment of one,” so make sure to question “authorities” and be the scientist of your own body.

In this show we discuss a couple news items dealing with what paleolithic humans ate and what this means for low-carb eating, or not. Regardless of what group ate what particular foods, in the weight loss journey it’s key to recognize the role that insulin plays in fat storage. We also address an email concerning the nature of carbs and endurance training, as well as potential difficulties in gaining support for the low-carb lifestyle from those close to us. In the process of resolving disputes about diet and food, “nonviolent communication” strategies are amazingly beneficial, which focus on feelings and needs and win/win scenarios that ensure that everyone’s needs get met.

In this show we discuss the nature of having “rigid” rules for eating. Is there a downside to eating healthily all the time? Further, are there any upsides to not caring much about what you’re consuming? We explore whether healthy eating might become an “obsession” for some and why some view it as pathological. What matters, of course, is what foods you focus on as staples, so there is no need to be overly strict. Your relationship to things that aren’t so healthy, such as “junk food,” also needs attention. Clearly, having the right nutritional info is key in this process, which will help you become more in harmony with your food choices, and they’ll come more naturally. Also, the psychological process of overcoming habits that aren’t so healthy and that may be causing disruption in your life is crucial–so that you can be at peace with yourself.

In this show we discuss weight scales, heart monitors, and robots that are being used in the health community. Should we turn to technology to help us with our weight loss or fitness goals? Well, it’s important to measure body fat on occasion rather than stepping on the scale frequently. And unless you’re super competitive, heart rate monitors cater to the misguided fitness notion of chronic cardio; instead, do more natural movements, strength training, and high intensity bursts of exercise, such as sprints. Beware the “cheat day” cycle and focus on healthy replacements. The future might look bright for AI software that can assist people mentally and physically. Now, what does it take to maintain the healthy mind fit body lifestyle? We explore they psychological side of this issue via a comment on our last podcast. Self-acceptance is key, as is self-awareness of subconscious thoughts and feelings, in order to become more integrated and focused on your own integrity with healthy processes.

(duration 16:30)

In this show we discuss a motivated listener’s weight loss objectives and once again determine that “counting calories” is ill-advised, and that keeping your daily carb consumption under a hundred grams is a good rule of thumb. After setting goals, it’s important to focus on the process and not get oriented towards bad habits (such as stepping on the scale every day). Once you’ve transitioned to a new eating lifestyle and you’re eating properly, your body is going to adjust and lose its excess body fat. We address three problematic beliefs. If you believe you have “Too much weight to lose!” then the practice of self-acceptance is key. Only by fully accepting your condition right now will you be able to move on to where you want to be. If you believe you have to “Give up favorite foods” then it’s important to realize that those unhealthy foods can be gradually replaced with new healthy favorites that are aligned with your weight loss goals. And introspection is crucial to living free of self-conflict. Finally, if you believe “Who’s to know what’s good to eat, so what’s the point?” then you need to embrace the practice of self-responsibility and objectivity in order to stay healthy.

In this episode we begin with more paleo banter and its challenges (especially on the road), Kevin’s exercise regimen, including a hand-on collision with a turtle. We address one listener’s solitary journey of weight loss, amidst those who seemingly don’t care, as well as his question about who to trust…how does one know for certain whose ideas are correct when it comes to diet and nutrition? How can one tell a crackpot from a legitimate expert in these matters? Basically, it’s important to strive for objectivity, by looking at the evidence and paying attention to the carb/insulin factor, as articulated by numerous researchers and practitioners. Once you have the proper knowledge, mind set, and motivation, you can then lead by example and encourage others to live optimally as well.

In this show we interview Richard Nikoley, whose blog promotes “expressing our primal genes for lean health, vitality, and attractiveness.” Understanding our nature as “rational animals” entails living as individuals who can make the wisest choices for ourselves, based on evolutionary fitness insights. Low-carb higher fat and adequate protein eating is a great start, and a paleo regimen just takes this to its logical conclusion. High intensity, brief workouts are great (chronic cardio, not). Being overweight is indicative of a broken metabolism, not bad genes. Intermittent fasting has positive health benefits. Probiotics (good bacteria) can be acquired in all sorts of natural ways, which don’t involve yogurt (ditch the anti-bacterial soap!). You have bare hands, so give bare feet a try.

In this shorter show we cover the challenges of being an olympian and the nature of self-identification, followed by a critique of a mainstream article on losing weight. Again, the calorie theory of weight loss rears it’s ugly head. We once again note the insulin factor in fat gain and storage. I share my yummy new paleo-ish drink: half coconut milk and half almond milk. It’s important to overcome your carb addiction, which entails resolving inner conflicts.

In this show, Kevin shares his recent natural movement experiences in Austin with Erwan for a day (and I share my unnatural movement experience on the ranch;). It’s important to understand the mental side of natural movement and conditioning in general; be focused and mindful, so as to excel and avoid injuries. Kevin has been taking advantage of some nutritious Paleokits by Steve Liberati, whom he interviewed (at the end of this show). We answer a couple listener emails, one concerning eating paleo-ish and shopping paleo or low carb, and the other concerning the issue of cholesterol and our recommendations.

(duration: 36:05)

In this inspiring interview, we explore with Erwan the nature of practical and adaptive movement that enables truly excelling in health and fitness, as well as an ethics of contributing to the well-being of others (an emphasis on collaboration rather than competition). MovNat brings about feelings of personal empowerment, confidence, freedom and efficiency. The more mindful we are of the possibilities of our bodies, the less prone we’ll be to “the Zoo human syndrome,” in which people don’t really engage with nature and with natural movement that challenges one’s mind and body. Combined with a paleo eating lifestyle, MovNat ensures an ideal physique, among other fine things. As Erwan wisely noted, “We can’t brush aside millions of years of evolution.” Simply put, natural movement is about being “strong, healthy, happy and free.”

Join us in our continuing discussion about childhood eating and the best methods of parenting (feel free to comment below the show notes). Promoting reason, respect, and rational self-interest is key to great eating habits. The quest for good nutritional knowledge must be engaged in by both adults and kids, as a partnership. It’s important not to enable bad eating habits, which entails living with integrity and practicing self-responsibility, which is in line with wanting the best for kids. Oh, and dates are ok carbs (like fruit in general), but should be consumed in moderation to minimize insulin levels.

In this show we offer further answers to questions by listeners, this time dealing with persuading others, particularly children, about healthy mind fit body lifestyle choices. Ultimately, it’s about respect and understanding, rather than battles of the wills or controlling others’ behavior, such as prohibiting consumption of “forbidden” foods, which at base denies personal responsibility. As we noted in the last episode, much of the time people’s eating decisions stem from how they were treated as children as well as their knowledge (or lack thereof) about food. So, parents need to adopt a healthy lifestyle that models good eating and provides rational guidance for kids, encouraging their own self-responsible choices.

In this second half of our interview with Robb Wolf, author of upcoming book The Paleo Solution, we discuss the potential ills of legumes, such as beans, peas, and peanut butter. Similar to grains, they have some inflammatory properties (but your individual results may vary). Another point covered was: given the plethora of bad foods out there, it’s important for adults to take responsibility and ensure the availability of good foods in their households. Keeping it simple is the key (e.g., protein, veggies, and fat), rather than making it more complex and difficult for yourself (no need for food journaling, for instance). Turns out, pretty much every human does well by removing grains, legumes, and dairy from their diet; then, it’s just a matter of adjusting the macronutrients as needed. Ultimately, the healthy mind fit body lifestyle will provide you the foundation from which you can fine-tune your health…and maybe even go full-on paleo at some point!

This show is the first part of our two-part interview with Robb Wolf, a paleo-oriented strength and conditioning coach with a biochemistry background. He offers his insights about the paleo eating regimen and the problems with modern diets. We ask him about his own evolution to the paleo lifestyle, from sick vegetarian, to lower carb, to paleo (dairy, grain, and legume free). We explore the potential drawbacks of eating dairy and grains based on the effects of gluten, lectin and other particular proteins, such as developing “leaky gut” and various autoimmune problems.

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 show Kevin finishes interviewing Dr. James Carlson, who provides us with a wealth of biochemistry knowledge and experiences with patients (and fellow physicians) concerning the ills of the typical dietary (and thus drug) prescription by most health care “authorities”–as well as the vast benefits of eating the proper foods (lower carb and higher fat) to ensure health and longevity. Carbohydrates do affect moods, and people unfortunately can become addicted to them and experience withdrawal symptoms. Insulin secretion needs to be minimized (via low carb foods) for achieving your optimal body fat percentage and ensure overall health.

(duration: 35:41)

In this show Kevin interviews Dr. James Carlson, who provides us with a wealth of biochemistry knowledge and experiences with patients (and fellow physicians) concerning the ills of the typical dietary (and thus drug) prescription by most health care “authorities”–as well as the vast benefits of eating the proper foods to ensure health and longevity. His book “Genocide: How Your Doctor’s Dietary Ignorance May Kill You!!!” explores these issues in fine detail, including the four myths: eating fat makes you fat;. eating cholesterol causes heart disease; calories are important; exercise is needed to lose weight. In actuality, a low carb, higher fat and adequate protein eating regimen is preferred for humans. Unfortunately, medical doctors were never taught this, and they tend not to care about the truth in this vital matter; a paradigm shift in med school needs to take place.

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:).

Stay tuned for next week’s interview with Dr. James Carlson!

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!

The Body Mass Index (BMI) and weight scales are not the best indicators of body fat percentage, which reflects the carb/insulin factor

http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/childhood-obesity-pediatric-weight-management-clinic/story?id=10650793

Parents are responsible for the kinds of foods kids eat; they shop for groceries and stock the shelves at home

http://abcnews.go.com/nightline/video/baby-battle-bulge-10672649

It’s important to focus on the macronutrient amounts when ensuring the health of kids; low carb and higher fat is better

Parents need to lead by example and educate kids about healthy eating–and model the eating of good foods

Most of the cause of obesity (whether child or adult) revolves around nutrition, not exercise

It’s very important to check in with kids’ feelings in relation to their eating habits (and have discussions about their cravings)

In this show we explore the nature of health and fitness training from an expert’s perspective

Josef’s fitness blog and site
http://josefbrandenburg.com/
http://thebodyyouwant.com

Aerobic exercise is not all it’s cracked up to be, and it might be making you hungrier and thus causing binge eating

Weight and high intensity shorter training is better for health and fitness than lots of endurance exercising

Try to avoid all those crappy carbs, such as lots of bread, grains, and cereals

The priority should be minimizing your insulin secretion, even though e.g. high quality meats are better than not so much

You can’t take at face value the results of studies reported by the mainstream media

Falsehoods are still being promoted in nutrition textbooks!

You don’t have to starve yourself and suffer in order to lose weight; just change the types of food you’re eating

Putting fat people on treadmills doesn’t really help them lose their extra fat

Personal trainer certifications aren’t good ways to judge knowledge and competence

Isolation exercises can fall short when it comes to overall fitness and “toning” muscles

Using calipers to measure bodyfat isn’t very reliable; a measuring tape can be a useful device, though

Governmental “officials” have no business telling you what and how to eat (even though they continue to intervene)

We explore the sixth and final pillar of self esteem: integrity, a congruence between your beliefs and behaviors

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

Super slow workouts can be quick and effective

It’s critical to sketch out your values explicitly

You can’t hide mistakes and missteps from yourself

The “Do as I say, not as I do” injunction is the ultimate example of defaulting on integrity

Hypocrisy is self invalidating

Your thoughts and values should be aligned with reality

Most people don’t grow up with good messages of integrity (or self-esteem in general) from adults

A condensed way of phrasing objective morality:
“Live consciously, take responsibility for your choices and actions, respect the rights of others, and follow own bliss.” N.B.

Ignorance is not really bliss in these important matters

Beware the misguided “authorities” who seek to use the force of law to control your choices and your life

Embrace the principle of reciprocal causation–by doing things that increase your self-esteem, you’re manifesting increased self-esteem

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

In this episode we explore the fourth pillar of self-esteem, which essentially means saying “yes” when you want to say “yes” and saying “no” when you want to say “no”

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

Being assertive means respectfully honoring yourself; it doesn’t mean being aggressive or belligerent

There’s the “take-away” and then there’s the “follow-through,” which requires acts of self-assertiveness

Self-assertiveness means actualizing your values and goals, bringing them into reality

To assert your healthy desires in the midst of a group (or family) environment requires potentially bold acts of self-assertiveness

You are not here on Earth to live up to someone else’s expectations

Curiosity goes hand in hand with assertiveness

On the nutrition side of athletics, it’s helpful to train lower and race higher in terms of carb consumption; keep fat as your main energy source while training

Warm-ups are not for wimps! It’s always wise to ease into a series of sprints, for instance

Microwave oven cooking is quick and easy, and healthy

Try to avoid eating foods cooked at high heat; lower temp cooking lessons potential carcinogens and free radicals

Self-responsibility is the third pillar of self-esteem

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 shift from saying “I have to…” to “I choose to…”; taking responsibility for your choices is key

It’s unfortunately easy to accept the status quo, even though you can alter it; so, a self-responsible action plan is vital

Being happier is a main outcome of living more responsibly

No one is coming to our rescue; we must thrive as independent and healthy beings

Kids do well with low-carb, paleolithic style eating, rather than with all the junk foods that Americans are used to

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

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

“Chronic cardio” is the typical prescription for the misguided high-carb/low-fat diet

Having the proper nutritional information is the biggest key to your health and fitness

Our cravings can change based on our mindset and emotional perspective

Paleolithic humans had different lifestyles depending on where they lived and their access to various foods

Nuts are great, regardless of how many of them paleolithic humans ate

Blood tests are a good indicator of whether you’ve been eating properly

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

Self-esteem is a combined sum of self-efficacy and self-respect

Feeling that you’re worthy of happiness is basically a subconscious issue

Much of our bodies run on autopilot, but our minds set the course based on our ideas and feelings

Being aware and being honest with yourself assist in living with a higher level of consciousness, responsibility, and integrity

Artificial, no calorie, sweeteners don’t really affect insulin levels, but they may induce carbohydrate cravings (catering to one’s “sweet tooth”)

Mark’s mission is to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness.

High endurance racing is not very healthy and detracts from longevity, because it requires higher insulin and stress hormone secretion

Shorter, high intensity workouts will benefit your body in the right way and leave you energized

Combining evolutionary biology with modern genetic science identifies the signals that turn on the right genes and turn off the bad ones

The Primal Blueprint is a comprehensive lifestyle plan, not merely a paleo eating regimen

Saturated fat is not to be feared at all (so long as it’s not coupled with lots of carbs!)

Grains ought not be the foundation of your diet, contrary to popular belief

The high-carb/low-fat diet creates problems for which the “solutions” (lots of cardio) create further problems

Our genes depend on various environmental signals

Self-acceptance is key to achieving your optimal weight

Paleolithic humans never got obese like today, and they ate sporadically (or intermittent fasting, which fosters cellular repair)

The good aspect of calorie restriction is reduction of insulin secretion

Fruits today are not what paleolithic humans had access to; rarely did they find more than a 100 grams of carbs to consume

Corn is not good to feed to cattle or humans!

It’s critical to take responsibility for one’s own health, instead of rely on “authorities”

It’s possible to train your body to derive 30% or more of calories from fat during an endurance race

Grains are cheap source of calories that readily convert to glucose (and thus fat) and they are a poor source of micronutrients

Paleolithic humans didn’t have access to all the carbs that we do today
…they’re not good for us, because our genes aren’t adapted to them

Short, intense exercise is preferable to long, intense (or even slightly less intense) exercise; and going barefoot is good!

Cavemen who walk among us by Katie Engelhart http://www2.macleans.ca/2010/02/26/cavemen-who-walk-among-us/

It’s hard to find healthy carb substitutes, aka low-carb breads and cereals and sweets
…such foods should only be occasional supplements to your healthy eating lifestyle

http://healthymindfitbody.com/2010/02/26/guilt-free-brownies/

Ultimately, it’s important to know why you crave high-carb foods, and that requires introspection

Jimmy joined us to explore his own health and nutrition journey as well as the wisdom of the low-carb lifestyle

And blog
http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/

Anybody can lose weight, so what matters is maintaining a healthy nutrition lifestyle for the long term

Sometimes carb substitutes with quality ingredients can assist in making your low-carb lifestyle satisfying

Low cholesterol is not necessarily healthy, and high triglycerides are not healthy either–both induced from high carb/low fat eating

Living the low-carb life is actually pretty simple, once you grasp the essentials of it

Blood tests are important to get baseline readings and to monitor your health progress

For instance, the NMR lipoprofile test and the VAP (Vertical Auto Profile) test are good ones

Vitamin D test (25 Hydroxy) is also important
more good info at http://www.grassrootshealth.net/

SIP (Silent Inflammation Profile) test is another test to consider

In addition to blood glucose testing, the A1C (glycated hemoglobin) test is useful for determining your (3-month) average blood glucose levels

Proper nutrition and diet is a great start, but psychological/emotional issues also need to be addressed during one’s journey to a healthy mind fit body

Regarding resistance training, try starting out with weight machines rather than the free weights; and, try a super-slow workout if you’re pressed for time!

While there is some disagreement over the details of what’s good for people, the essentials are pretty well understood in the low-carb community

Check out Jimmy’s new book, which has a wealth of insights and stories of his journey to the truth in health and nutrition:

Health Hype by John Stossel
http://www.libertyforall.net/?p=3837

Eating high sugar foods doesn’t necessarily induce hyperactivity; but beware the blood sugar swings

Lots of carbs require lots of insulin, which can lead to lots of unhealthy issues

Lower blood sugar typically leads to feeling in a slump and induces more carb cravings

Most kids are able to burn off excess carbs, even though such an eating regimen isn’t healthy

Foods also contain water; just make sure you’re adequately hydrated throughout the day

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

Why Do You Continue to Eat When You’re Full? by Joseph Mercola http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig5/mercola29.1.html

If you get stressed out from lack of sleep, you’ll have a harder time coping with cravings

Ghrelin and leptin are factors in satiety and appetite, but the mental factors are more important and have greater effect

Sentence completion exercises are extremely useful for coming to terms with one’s motivations and subconscious thoughts and feelings

The key is to remedy self-conflict, so that you can achieve your goals and have a healthy, happy life!

It’s important to pay attention to the eating contexts that you’re putting yourself in, but ultimately you choose what to eat

Famous article by Gary Taubes:
What If It’s All Been A Big Fat Lie?

In order to achieve your ideal weight, there’s no need to focus mainly on brain chemistry and supplements to supposedly alter it

Instead, examine your choices from a psychological perspective

5 techniques for busting cravings (from Jonny Bowden’s book _Living The Low Carb Life_)…

1) eat fat and protein every few hours
2) avoid any junk carbs (including lots of complex carbs)
3) never let yourself become famished; carry protein/fat snacks
4) get enough sleep!
5) learn to recognize the emotional triggers for cravings…

The practices of self-acceptance and self-healing are vital to the process of becoming integrated without persistent self-conflict

Fast food may not be healthy, but most food people buy in the grocery store isn’t too healthy either

Compared to paleolithic humans, we have way more access to carbs

Though self-responsibility is key, we’ve all been given a lot of bad information, such as that fat is bad and abundant carbs are ok

Unfortunately, most journalists are sympathetic to regulation and taxation, which CSPI promotes, in a vain attempt to control people’s choices and supposedly make the world a better place

The so-called lipid hypothesis, that eating fat raises cholesterol and causes cardiovascular disease, was flawed from the start

Rather than being objective, science is often controlled by those versed in politics; thus, a small group of people in power can have a detrimental influence on the eating habits of an entire country

Without the FDA and USDA (and their special interests), companies would have to compete in the marketplace for ensuring safe products for their customers

Cheese fried in coconut oil is not bad for you; it’s actually beneficial!

Most vegetable oils are not healthy for humans

Since fats are delicious, it’s not hard to convince kids to eat them :)

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad science out there, and bad reporting on it; confirmation bias is prevalent

Passing laws doesn’t educate people; coercive, one-size-fits-all edicts don’t support self-responbility and respect individual choices

It’s always better to eat the whole fruit than to drink the juice (which is concentrated carbs)

Saturated fat is not bad

For some odd reason, the myth of bad saturated fat persists in the minds of many so-called nutrition experts

These experts know what they’re talking about regarding fat and cholesterol…
http://www.fathead-movie.com/index.php/meet-the-experts/

Vegetable oils are to be mostly avoided (except for olive oil)

The CSPI (Center for Science in the Public Interest) has contributed to lots of nutritional misinformation

Fish oil is better than flaxseed oil for omega 3s

Different carbs all get converted into sugar, which requires insulin, which enables fat accumulation and fat storage

Grain-based carbs are to be eaten only in moderation
