How Foods are Harming Your Kids – Steven Gundry, M.D. – #649

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Steven Gundry is back on the show with new research about how food is affecting our kids.

He’s a renowned heart surgeon, celebrity doctor, and medical researcher with a focus on curing modern diseases via dietary changes. You may know him from his New York Times best-selling books, “The Plant Paradox” and “The Longevity Paradox.” You can listen to Bulletproof Radio episodes #417 and #604 for more information on those topics.

In his latest book, “The Plant Paradox Family Cookbook: 80 One-Pot Recipes to Nourish Your Family Using Your Instant Pot, Slow Cooker or Sheet Pan,” Dr. Gundry revisits his foundational approach and expands it to include the latest nutritional science for kids. He also offers families practical tools for transitioning to the Plant Paradox lifestyle.

As busy and often tired parents with a multitude of responsibilities, we may say to ourselves that it’s ok to grab fast food or order take out. “Well, it’s not okay,” says Dr. Gundry. “The studies show the sooner we start our kids eating properly, the sooner you set them up for a lifetime of successful health.”

Listen on to learn more about the brain-gut-behavior connection and find out ways to protect your kids’ microbiome.

9 Intermittent Fasting Podcast Episodes That Will Help You Get Started

  • Fasting has been a part of almost every human culture for centuries — sometimes for spiritual reasons, other times because there wasn’t enough food to feed everyone every day.
  • Intermittent fasting is when you restrict food every day for a period, and eat your food for the day during a shortened window of time.
  • Intermittent fasting results vary, but people report more energy, a clearer mind, immune benefits, better sleep, and more
  • Here are 8 podcast episodes to get you on the right track with intermittent fasting.

Fasting may seem like it’s on trend at the moment, but it’s nothing new. Fasting has been a part of almost every human culture for centuries — sometimes for spiritual reasons, other times because there wasn’t enough food to feed everyone every day.

Intermittent fasting is when you restrict food every day for a period, and eat your food for the day during a shortened window of time. For example, you’ll take 18 hours off of eating and take in all of your calories for the day in a 6-hour window in the afternoon to evening.

You’ve heard about the amazing benefits — more energy, a clearer mind, reduced disease risk, better sleep. Over the past five years, various guests, from world-class athletes to biochemists to innovative physicians have talked to Dave on the Bulletproof Radio podcast about their experience with intermittent fasting. Their reasons for getting started are as varied as their backgrounds. Ahead, learn more about why you need intermittent fasting in your life, and what you can expect from adopting the practice.

Naomi Whittel, author of “Glow15: A Science Based Plan to Lose Weight, Revitalize Your Skin and Invigorate Your Life”

Listen on iTunes

As a pre-teen, the life stage when young girls become hyper-aware of appearance, Naomi Whittel had a few autoimmune conditions that outwardly affected her skin. Like many people with chronic conditions, Whittel experienced frustration of treatment failures followed by eventual success with natural remedies.

Whittel grew up on a biodynamic farm with parents who favored natural wellness, so her life experience primed Whittel to make a career of natural wellness. She started a successful supplements company, sold it to one of the largest supplements companies in the game, and became CEO of that company. She eventually developed the Glow 15 program, an inside-out skincare program based on autophagy – giving your cells the chance to clean out waste and repair themselves for youthful, glowing skin. Much like the Bulletproof Diet, Whittel recommends intermittent fasting and protein fasting to stay youthful inside and out.

Mark Mattson, Ph.D.

Listen on iTunes

Vegan meat offers a kill-free source of protein -- but is it healthy? Here’s a look at why plant-based meat might not be better for you (or the environment).Dr. Mark Mattson has been intermittent fasting since before it was cool. For years, he has studied the effects of intermittent fasting and exercise to find out how the brain adapts to mild stressors like fasting and exercise. In this interview, he talks with Dave about what’s happening in your body during a fast, how to choose your fasting period, and what he eats to maximize his own fasting benefits.

Brad Pilon

Listen on iTunes

Brad Pilon did his graduate work on the effects of short-term fasting and human health. After spending years in the bodybuilding industry, where it is common practice to eat every three hours and mainline protein to prevent your muscles from shrinking, Pilon found that fasting gives you an edge no matter what your health or physique goals are. Dave and Brad discuss old ways of thinking and how research and real-world evidence shatter conventional bodybuilding myths.

Mark Sisson

Listen on iTunes 

In this episode of the Bulletproof Radio podcast, Dave and Mark Sisson, author of “The Primal Blueprint” and “The Keto Reset Diet” talk metabolic flexibility — the idea that you know what works for you and you do that most of the time, and you change it up every now and again. Whether you spend some amount of time in ketosis, do an extended fast a few times a year, burn fat for a while, burn glucose for a few days… each period of doing something different teaches your body how to use what’s available. That leads to resilience, which is the best state your body can be in — the state where youadapt to whatever life throws your way.

Wim Hof

Listen on iTunes

Best known for plodding through the Himalayas in shorts, Wim Hof is the ultimate example of a resilient human. Using a method of breathing he developed by self-experimentation, he competes in athletic events in extreme conditions without showing the physiological changes that people typically exhibit, like drop in core temperature. He credits intermittent fasting as part of his formula that allows him to access his autonomic nervous system (the system that regulates the things you don’t think about, like heart rate and body temperature) at will, which allows him to persist no matter what he’s up against.

Dr. Joseph Mercola

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Joseph Mercola, DO, explains that if you take care of your insulin resistance, it snowballs and you resolve a lot of health problems since a lot of issues stem from improper insulin signaling. He talks about intermittent fasting as part of the larger goal of improving your insulin sensitivity.

Dr. Sylvia Tara

Listen on iTunes

Dr. Sylvia Tara, PhD dives deep into one of the most misunderstood and demonized nutrients in the human diet, fat. She says that the key to losing weight is understanding the complexities of fat and making it work for you, not against you. Dr. Tara explains how intermittent fasting helps keep your insulin stable so that you lose weight, and she points out special considerations for the differences in the way women store and use fat.

Dr. Jason Fung and Jimmy Moore

Listen on iTunes

If you want a comprehensive overview of the benefits of fasting, give this episode of Bulletproof Radio a listen. Dr. Jason Fung and author Jimmy Moore go deep into the science behind fasting, what’s happening with your hormones and in your cells when you fast, and the amazing results you can experience for yourself.

Toxic Mold, Intermittent Fasting & Vegan vs Low Carb

Dr. Amy Shah

Listen on iTunes

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Amy Shah explains the snags that women often run into with intermittent fasting. Women’s hormones are more sensitive than men’s, so there are steps women can take to get all the benefits of intermittent fasting without the hormone fluctuations and stress on the adrenals. As a bonus, she gets into tips and tricks on how to get kids to choose healthy foods on their own.

Humans are built to fast. You get the signal to eat early in your fast, and later on, you start producing ketones for energy and you don’t feel the need to eat for a while.

That point is when the magic happens. Your cells get a break from digestion and pulling energy out of food, and switch to cleaning, maintenance and repair mode. The result is youthful, healthy cells that make your whole body work more efficiently. There are different ways to do it — the key to success with fasting is to find the right way for you.

Altered States of Sex – Layla Martin – #651

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I have a fascinating guest who teaches people the tools and techniques required to experience pleasurable sex. Women’s Health Magazine calls her, “the Headmistress of Pleasure,” and Cosmopolitan calls her a “Sexpert Extraordinaire.”

Layla Martin studied human sexuality and human biology at Stanford and then spent a decade learning from Tantric masters in the jungles of Asia. She combines modern science with the effective practices of Tantra to inspire people to heal trauma or shame and fully awaken their sexuality.

“Humans need access to these mystical states of awareness,” she says. “It’s not something just privileged or woo-woo or something for yoga class; it’s something that people need to be operating at the highest level of neurological health.”

As the founder of the Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality, Layla teaches people how to experience more epic sex and legendary love through her trademarked VITA™ Method. She has a potent approach to up-leveling sex and life, and she shares her practices on her YouTube channel, which has nearly 90 million views to date.

So, if you’re ready to upgrade your sex life, listen on for this and more of Layla’s advice: “Being connected to your body, understanding your energy system and having an ability to feel heightened sensations all contribute to being excellent in bed.”

Rethinking Strength with Intelligent Muscle Training – Ben Pakulski – #652

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking with Ben Pakulski in person at Alpha Labs. Ben is a retired professional bodybuilder and former Mr. Canada who now educates people all around the globe on the benefits of an intelligent and holistic approach to muscle building and its effect on thriving health, longevity, upgraded consciousness, self-confidence and an overall positive outlook on life.

He also hosts the podcast “Muscle Intelligence” and is the creator of the best-selling muscle-building program MI40.

You can change. I think that’s the big messaging behind what I do is I want to empower people to change their body and change their mind, and realize that no matter what it is in this world, you can do it. You just haven’t figured out the steps yet.”

Ben uses a unique mindset-based approach to muscle-building. Listen on to learn about all the benefits of muscle, how to maximize your results in a healthy way, and the role of mindfulness in gaining muscle.

Mastering Brain Waves and Creating Mind Bridges – Dawson Church – #653

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m at the Beverly Hilton in L.A. with my good friend Dawson Church, Ph.D. Today we’re going to dive into brain wave—what they are, why their frequencies are important and what they do in various emotional states, from stress to meditation.

You’ll find out how brain growth is influenced by “the power of our behavior, of our beliefs, of our practices, of our spiritual practices, of our emotional states on our brains,” Dawson says. “We are reshaping our brains with every thought we think, with every emotion we feel, with every meditation session we do.”

Some background you should know about Dawson: He’s an expert tapper—not of the dancing kind, but rather the emotional freedom technique kind. (EFT for short.) He’s also been on Bulletproof Radio before. In episode 474, we talked about all things tapping and he led me through an EFT session on that podcast. He has conducted dozens of clinical trials and founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare to promote groundbreaking new treatments. He’s studied the effects of meditation on the brain and tapping as a technique to help people heal from physical, emotional and mental challenges.

As an award-winning author and researcher, his book “The Genie in Your Genes” linked emotions and genetics. His follow-up book, “Mind to Matter” examined the science of peak mental states. We discuss his forthcoming book, “Bliss Brain,” and the surprising science of the brain he discovered in his research and study of brain waves.

“One of the big mysteries of neuroscience for decades was that the brain activity doesn’t fluctuate by more than 5% up or down, day or night,” he says. “When you relax, your brain doesn’t relax. Your brain activity just stays at the same high level.” … “When you’re not doing a task, the brain sees all this unused spare capacity and it says, “Great. Let’s grab this.” And it grabs it to such a consistent degree that we call that the default mode network.”

Listen on to learn more about brain activity and the fascinating way it bridges your consciousness.

*This episode contains a mini session guided by Dawson that is a allows you to quickly access an altered state of consciousness.

Do Less to Get More – Kate Northrup – #654

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m taking with Kate Northrup. As an entrepreneur, best-selling author, speaker, activist and mother, she has built a multimedia digital company by doing less and working fewer hours—all while raising two small kids.

In her newest book, “Do Less: A Revolutionary Approach to Time and Energy Management for Busy Moms,” she says a resounding no to the addiction of busyness and debunks the myth that personal worth equals productivity.

“We might be doing things just because we’re upholding some standards that if we really were to check in with our hearts and souls, they’re not actually bringing us joy,” she says. “So, I believe things need to either bring us results or bring us joy. If they don’t bring us results or joy, they have no business in our lives.”

I’m excited to talk to Kate about how she balances practical data with the important soul work to manage her business, her energy and her life. I’m especially intrigued with how she manages to “bend time.”

Unite Mind & Body to Achieve Health & Healing – Dr. Andrew Weil – #656

This episode of Bulletproof Radio was recorded live with Dr. Andrew Weil at True Food Kitchen in Phoenix, Arizona.

Dr. Weil is an internationally known pioneer and leader in integrative medicine. He is a recognized expert for his views on living a healthy lifestyle, his philosophy of healthy aging, and his critique of the future of medicine and health care.

“I am absolutely convinced that the mind and body are one thing, they’re not separable,” he says. “And that one of the greatest limitations of modern medicine is that it sees the mind and body as separate. And if it recognizes the mind at all, it doesn’t admit that it can influence the body.”

A Harvard-trained medical doctor, he is the founder and director of the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. The Center is the leading effort in the world to develop a comprehensive curriculum in integrative medicine. He champions the use of medicinal plants and alternative medicine, as well as the reform of medical education.

Dr. Weil also is a clinical professor of medicine and a professor of Public Health at the University of Arizona and the author of more than a dozen books on health, wellness and optimal living.

Fast Fitness! 40 Seconds, 3 Times a Week – Lance Dalleck, Ph.D. – #657

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Lance Dalleck, Ph.D., a professor of Exercise and Sport Science at Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado.

Lance’s research validates the science behind CAR.O.L. FIT AI, a game-changing exercise bike that delivers peak fitness in just 40 seconds. And you don’t even have to break a sweat.

He shares some interesting findings that support the effectiveness of high-intensity interval training on the CAR.O.L. bike, an AI-powered, interactive exercise bike with self-learning algorithms. CAR.O.L. stands for CARdiovascular Optimization Logic. You may remember that I talked with the CAR.O.L. FIT AI co-founders on episode #615 of Bulletproof Radio about how to hack your cardiovascular system with the CAR.O.L.

“With a 20-second sprint, you’re increasing your energy demand above rest substantially,” Lance says. “That’s a severe disruption to your homeostasis. And as a result of that, you’re putting in motion a variety of upregulation of metabolic pathways that allow you to provide energy that will regenerate ATP so that you can keep sprinting for 20 seconds. And the research is pretty clear that we’ve identified that minimum time that turns on these pathways, 20 seconds, two bouts a day, and that’s sufficient.”

Lance teaches in both the Exercise and Sport Science and High-Altitude Exercise Physiology programs. He researches primary and secondary prevention of chronic diseases through evidence-based interventions like exercise and nutrition and quantifies the energy expenditure of outdoor and non-traditional types of physical activity. His research into CAR.O.L. culminated in a paper published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: “Reduced Exertion High-Intensity Interval Training is More Effective at Improving Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Cardiometabolic Health than Traditional Moderate-Intensity Continuous Training.”

Lance has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, delivered 30 conference proceedings, and written 10 book chapters. He is on the Scientific Advisory Panel for the American Council on Exercise.

Women, Hormones and DNA – Genetic Estrogen Hacking with Mansoor Mohammed, Ph.D. – #658

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a scientist and entrepreneur in the field of genomics who is regarded as one of the most innovative leaders in the emerging personalized medicine and lifestyle genomics space.

Mansoor Mohammed, Ph.D., president and chief scientific officer of The DNA Company, is considered to be a pioneer in medical genomics. He’s a classically trained molecular immunologist who has received academic and industry awards, published numerous papers, and holds patents in the general fields of molecular diagnostics and genomics research.

“Functional genomics is about understanding the DNA behaves in every definition like a language,” Mansoor says. “It has vocabulary, i.e., the genes. But it also has grammar, sentence structure, syntax, nuances. You’ve got to be able to read genetic structure at the holistic level.”

Listen on to learn more about how advancements across the exciting field of functional genomics are influencing personalized medicine and how The DNA Company is approaching female hormone health.

“We’ve chosen female health as our primary initial focus, and more specifically, taking a functional genomics’ view of the mechanisms that drive hormone health in women,” Mansoor says.
