EFR 430: The Wild Diet and Creating Healthy Traditions with with Abel James

Rewind 10 SecondsPlayFast Forward

A jump from the field of audio to health, nutrition, and fitness, wouldn't land perfectly when taken overnight. How then did Abel James, the man of the show today, get his mind and body dedicated to teaching and practising good health and nutrition? Join Chase on this episode of the Ever Forward Radio as he interviews Abel ‘Fat-Burning Man’ James, who is a number one best-selling author, a top-10 app developer, musician, radio talk show host, celebrity coach and entrepreneur. He is also the host of the podcast, ‘The Fat-Burning Man Show’, which is at the top of the charts in many countries around the world.

In the era of exhaustive diets and fitness regimes, listening and understanding what your body really needs can be difficult but not impossible. We need to get rid of the things we do not use and focus on that which needs to be prioritized.

"I need to keto harder" or "I need to diet harder" are only rants to trick or force yourself into doing things to please others.

This is where being like a kid can help. Children enjoy doing things and do it for the fun of the process and learning through it. What's more, they are invisibly rewarded for it later on in their lives. Something which doesn't give you immediate rewards, could have something better in store for your future.

Practise healthy eating. Cutting out completely on the carbs or the proteins could just not go well with your body. Abel has on the episode, said that he stresses on the need to replace the term "fruits and vegetables" with "vegetables and fruits". Do you see why he does that? You need to reverse the priority you give to the two!

Focus your energy in the right direction and invest in those that are good for you.    

Tune in to the complete episode for some amazing tips on healthy eating, exercise and living a life you love!

Higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids: Not only does grass fed beef contain much higher levels of omega-3s than conventional beef, it also contains an ideal ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids which is vital in helping control and reduce inflammation.

Elevated levels of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): 100% grass fed beef is one of the best sources of CLA. CLA exerts potent antioxidant activity. Studies have documented CLA’s ability to prevent diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

More vitamins and minerals: 100% grass fed beef contains more calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, beta-carotene and iron than grain-fed beef.It also has higher levels of B vitamins – specifically (thiamin (B1) and riboflavin (B2), as well as the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. These fat soluble vitamins enhance mineral and protein absorption and are believed to protect against cardiovascular disease.

Elevated concentrations of Glutathione: Glutathione is often called the body's "master antioxidant". It is a very powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body from oxidation and DNA damage.

Good for the environment: Conventionally raised, grain fed beef is indeed terrible for the environment. However, 100% grass fed beef helps to regenerate soil and grasslands which, in turn, helps pull carbon out of the atmosphere and put it back in the soil where it belongs.

The woos and wows of Metabolic Flexibility are no longer a secret! Join Chase on this episode of the Ever Forward Radio as he interviews former research biochemist and two-times New York times best-selling author of The Paleo Solution and Wired to Eat, Robb Wolf. He is also the host of the Healthy Rebellion Radio, a weekly show featuring listener Q and A on all things diet and health, and serves on the board of Directors/Advisors for Specialty Health Inc, The Chickasaw Nation’s “Unconquered Life” initiative and a number of innovative start ups with a focus on health and sustainability.

Robb simplifies anybody's understanding of fitness and health by discussing everything from individual body responses to quantity of carbs taken to a lot of other essentials like maintaining electrolyte balance in the body and having sound sleep. Tune in for you to also get a peek into Robb's personal life and learn from him his extensive understanding of health and fitness!

Rob broke the dogma around KETO diets and dove deeper into individual metabolic flexibilities, catering to people’s nutrition needs suitably. Apparently Robbs wife has great metabolic flexibility and he understands from her how different it could be for every person as he says his physical self 'sucks' at the same.

The fact that some of us are over-doing our fitness practices is also something to take a look at. There's a lot that needs to be thought of other than the social media pleasing and planning!

Listen in as the duo also discuss rehydration, recovery and the function of different electrolytes in the body. You'd be surprised to know that you are totally unlikely to die because of consuming less amount of water and the fact that over-consuming the same could have a disastrous impact on your body. Also, sodium is one constituent you undervalue and demonize. Why? Because over-consumption of sodium could perhaps spare you from life threatening illnesses. But when the same is done with Potassium, another bodily electrolyte, the implications are costlier than you can imagine!

Rob also has a thing with reading and researching topics other than health and nutrition, like economics and physics. It helps him increase the quality of living and growing as a person. And it would sure help you widen your knowledge levels and perhaps give you some time off of your routine work habits!

To conclude, what this episode translates to is simple- metabolic flexibility is real and it’s high time you break the myths around the ‘perfect’ diet because a happy you is a healthy you!

Key Highlights

  • Learn about the 7-day carb test Robb practises with his clients and how it's helped break the dogma around KETO diets for everybody into it.

  • Metabolic Flexibility is laudable and cool. Your sleep could actually improve if you understand that better.

  • Hydration is water plus sodium and not just water.

  • Lowering sodium consumption does not reduce hypertension though the opposite is true. Also know the importance of another major electrolyte- Mg. Around 650 of your body processes revolve around it!

  • For children and adults aged 20-25, declining sleep could mean recovering less everyday. Sleep helps you recover and detox.

  • Past 30, your metabolism takes a predictable trajectory. You need to learn to flatten the curve.

  • Know the diet special drinks at Robb's. Also know why you should avoid beer and sugary drinks at all times.

Proper hydration is critical for optimizing mental and physical performance.

Hydration is not just about drinking enough water - to stay properly hydrated you need to consume adequate electrolytes. They help your nerve impulses fire, regulate fluid balance, help produce energy, and support strong bones.

One article in the Journal of Sport Science reported:

“Vigorous exercise and warm/hot weather induce sweat production, which contains both water and electrolytes. Daily water (4-10 L) and sodium (3500-7000 mg) losses in active athletes during hot weather exposure can induce water and electrolyte deficits…”

When you’re physically active and sweat, replacing lost sodium is essential to feel and perform your best. But tons of folks forget about sodium and drink more water when they feel dehydrated - the more common problem here is drinking too much water, not too little. Overwatering dilutes blood sodium levels, causing a dangerous condition called hyponatremia - which can lead to headaches, muscle cramps, and fatigue.

The takeaway is this: drink to thirst - and don’t forget to replace electrolytes. It’s always one of the first things I stress to a new client. Not only will this help eliminate dehydration symptoms like headaches and muscle cramps, it’s essential for keeping our brain, muscles, and organs functioning properly.

With the humongous growth of technology and our constant need for a better lifestyle, we’ve failed to consider the dangers that lurk behind. You’d be surprised to know that though 5G provides a faster alternative to crawling data services, it is causing a huge exponential increase to your EMF exposure. How do you then adapt to changing times and opt for quality choices? 

Our guest today knows just how to tune your choices to suit the best. Join Chase on the episode as he interviews Juraj Kocar, CEO at Somavedic Technologies.  Somavedic is his dream project for a functional and broadly accessible frequency therapy device meant to harmonize the negative effects of EMF (electromagnetic radiation from cell phones, wifi's, etc). 

If that sounds interesting, know also that Juraj has tips for aiding your hydration with ‘quality’ water. Yes. You get to learn today the two kinds of water- structured and unstructured and how the quality of water you consume can enormously affect your body’s hydration.

The strength of the EMF around us is a billion times higher than it was years ago. Equally intimidating is the fact that our heart and the brain are most vulnerable to its dangers. Not just humans, other beings are equally affected- do you know that plants do not grow when kept in an area where WiFi or such radiations are present?

If the negative impacts of exposing ourselves to wireless radiation is this big, why do companies continue to scale and expand the levels of these? How do we hook ourselves out of the negative catch of technology and how can we create a healthier alternative to those? Tune in for an insightful conversation and get yourself matchless words of wisdom from the wonderful entrepreneur guest.

In a nutshell, this episode would help you make better choices for a healthier living!

 

Key Highlights

  • 5G has not replaced the old 3G/4G. It has another bandwidth and operates at higher frequencies. This also means it needs more towers to operate- increasing our exposure to radiations!

  • Know what wireless transmission has done to our water bodies.

  • Apart from affecting our hearts and brains, these radiations also cause tiredness, lower our immunity and cause fertility loss in men.

  • Learn all about structured and unstructured water and how unstructured water is converted into structured water.

  • How does EMF act internally? It causes the calcium outside our cells to penetrate into the cell, leading to stress.

  • Learn how Somavedic is helping mitigate the harms of EMF.

  • Learn how to choose quality over quantity- be it hydration or sleep.

In this episode of Ever Forward Radio, Chase speaks with Laura Poburan of The Unfiltered Coach and L2 Fitness on why her role as a mentor in the health and wellness space is more relevant in 2021 than it has ever been. After all, people around the world have been forced to reevaluate their priorities throughout the last several months.

On nutrition coaching clients, Laura says, “They’re looking for something so much deeper now. They’ve been forced to look at their lives in a new way. They’ve been forced to take account of everything in their life that they aren’t happy about—everything in life that they’re using food to cope with. They’re ready for a deeper transformation. They’re ready to change who they are as people; not just continue to chase the same arbitrary goals year after year after year.”

Laura views nutrition coaching as a vehicle to access different parts of her clients’ lives—to show them that nutrition is just one small aspect, but one that they can use as a foundation for more powerful, holistic change. She calls our eating patterns “the vehicle into our subconscious” which allows us to see where we are falling into disempowering patterns where we are covering up, or numbing, the things in our lives that we are not happy with. Oftentimes, we use food to do just that, if only because food is so accessible.

"When you’re working with people on their deep-rooted triggers, it’s not your role to solve it, but to guide them along to help them discover how to overcome those challenges themselves."

As the saying goes: A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. This year has placed limiting beliefs on many, or even reinforced limiting beliefs that they already had going into 2020. As much as nutrition coaches may want to swoop in and impose their own beliefs on their clients, they’ll quickly find that this approach will backfire.

Powerful coaches don’t come in to “fix” their clients. Instead, they look to step back and ask questions that raise their clients’ awareness until they are finally ready to receive their lessons. It is only when what you have to say is meaningful to a person that they will act on it.

Follow Laura @laurapoburan

Follow Chase @chase_chewning

Key Highlights

  • Laura shares why “stepping into my zone of genius and creating more space in my life” is her resolution in 2021.

  • 2020 has proven that nutrition coaches need to go beyond their clients’ eating habits and toward their core values as individuals. Laura describes how she utilizes “trigger mapping” to uncover how her clients view the world and therefore know how to help them undergo a transformation around how they view food.

  • The coach-client dynamic has also shifted drastically this past year. Laura shares how she had to adapt to challenges to meet the needs of her clients.

  • Effective coaches drop their ego in order to allow their clients to discover their own issues. The importance of empathy and selfless communication are fleshed out.

  • Laura explains her process for helping coaches define their vision-mission and values and in turn establish an effective approach to guiding their clients to reach their goals.

  • Laura talks about how striving for alignment of the tiniest things is her key to living a life ever forward.

EFR 423: Lead During Chaos Like a Navy SEAL and the 5 Pillars of Success with Thom Shea

Rewind 10 SecondsPlayFast Forward

00:00:00

00:00:00

Chase speaks with Chief Special Warfare Operator Thomas Shea, who discusses his new book Three Simple Things: Leading During Chaos. He draws a parallel between success as an author to success in the military—or, really, success in any endeavor. He refers to this common thread as the monotony of “doing a lot of stupid, simple things that nobody else is willing to do” each and every day The road to success, he says, is “boring”; otherwise, it would not be so elusive to most.

Chase and Thom break the lessons of the book down to the five pillars of health, wealth, relationships, learning, and spirituality. A particular emphasis is put on the spiritual only because it is a rare thing to hear someone in the military discuss this often overlooked dimension of life. In fact, he notes that life begins and ends with the spiritual and refers to our very being as our vessel for making anything that we want to happen, happen.

"If you can un-complicate the shit that’s in your world, you win."

Thom also spends a considerable amount of time speaking on the paramount importance of relationships and how everything simply falls apart without them. Your physical health, your ability to learn, and your financial situation will suffer when your relationship with someone close to you such as your spouse is in dire straits. Thom mentions that he would even kick out members of his SEAL team if he found out that their spouse was cheating on them. “They would get us killed,” he says about those SEALS experiencing the mental and emotional pitfalls of a damaged relationship.

The theme of the monotony of success continues to run through Thom’s best practices for maximizing your health, wealth, and learning capacities. Progress in these areas requires a commitment from you to do the smallest of action steps every single day; nothing more, nothing less. “If you realize it’s stale,” says Thom, “you’re gonna win.”

Follow Thom on Instagram @frogmanout

Follow Chase on Instagram @chase_chewning

Key Highlights

  • Chase and Thom share their thoughts on the “monotony of success” and how anyone can discipline themselves (if they decide to) to endure the day-by-day tasks that will eventually bring their goals to fruition.

  • Thom says that spirituality is “your ability to make ripples across time, space, and distance.” He explains how to use your five senses to activate your spiritual awareness, as well as why he advocates that everyone brush their skin every morning and evening.

  • Thom goes into why the physical, intellectual, and wealth factors of life cannot exist together without relationships.

  • There are three ways to learn:

    1. Learn something new

    2. Get better at something that you’ve already learned

    3. Let yourself dream. Thom dives deep into these three ways and why he describes dreaming as “strategic learning”

  • Asked about the final pillar, wealth, Thom goes into how the other four columns play a role into how much (or how little) compensation you receive in the pursuit of what you value.

  • Thom hearkens back to the SEALs’ saying that “the only easy day was yesterday” as he explains how he lives a life ever forward

In this episode of Ever Forward Radio, Chase speaks with Drew Manning on his second iteration of Fit2Fat2Fit. Drew embarked on another Fit2Fat2Fit journey in 2020, nine years after his first run back in 2011. He reflects on the curiosity that led him to start his experiment almost a decade ago and how it ended up going viral, being featured on shows like Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, The View, and many more before finally becoming a hit TV show on A&E.

Drew’s Fit2Fat2Fit journey gave him a whole new perspective on those who struggle to lose weight or to simply be healthier. He shares how humbled he was during that first experiment and how it nurtured in him something that motivated him to take on this journey one more time: empathy.

“Empathy is something that is lacking in the fitness industry,” he says. “But this world lacks empathy as well.” With all the divisiveness that took place in 2020, Drew thought the time was ripe to relive Fit2Fat2Fit, not just to shine an inspiring light in the midst of all the chaos this year has brought, but also because there are even more opportunities on social media to get eyes on the project now compared to nine years ago.

"Sometimes, I think it takes something crazy to catch people’s attention and motivate them in a different and unique way that they haven’t ever experienced before."

Drew’s ultimate goal is to bring more empathy to the industry and to society as a whole. He says: “I feel like doing it a second time can really disrupt the industry by showing that it’s more of a mental and emotional journey for people who struggle with weight loss.”

Follow Drew on Instagram @fit2fat2fit

Follow Chase on Instagram @chase_chewning

Key Highlights
  • Drew explains how he prepared his family, mentally and emotionally, for his 2020 Fit2Fat2Fit journey, and why this second run is harder than the first.

  • With the intention of making this journey more educational the second time around, Drew decided to regularly track his biomarkers (ex. heart rate, blood sugar, etc.). He goes into the thought process behind his decision.

  • It was obviously much riskier in 2020 for Drew to let himself become as unhealthy as he let himself be. He shares how he set safety precautions for himself amid COVID season.

  • Why did Drew decide on this particular outlandish, risky gesture as his vehicle for disrupting the fitness industry?

  • Drew’s advice for someone who is unhealthy to take their first step in the right direction.

Mindset is essentially who we are. What we think, why we think and how we think define our daily wellbeing. They are of such importance that science and researches are constantly coming up with new information about the way our brain functions. But, what can we do to shift our mindset once we see a negative pattern happening? In which way we can impact and influence our behavior to match the positive life we know we can live? In this episode, Robyn Downs discusses some of the most important actions we can take to start feeling good.

You will also learn about habit changing and the reasons why is easier to change ourselves than to expect different outcomes, how you can set goals for the next year in a more sustainable and attainable way (that actually works), and what are the 3 non-changing brain patterns that we need to be aware of in order to uncomplicate life and instigate success. Our ways of thinking end up being just little pieces that we, as rational individuals, must gather to solve the whole puzzle.

Proper hydration requires water and electrolytes, especially for active folks who sweat a ton. Often electrolytes are forgotten.

  • Drinking too much water - not too little - is the biggest problem for these folks: overwatering leads to low salt levels in the blood (a condition known as hyponatremia - which causes unpleasant symptoms like headaches, muscle cramps, and fatigue).

  • Properly balancing electrolytes can lead to increased endurance, performance, and recovery.

Main message: drink to thirst, not beyond, and make sure to replace electrolytes lost through sweat, especially sodium.

  • For low-carb or fasting - electrolytes are key for relieving hunger, cramps, headaches, tiredness, and dizziness.

  • Sugar, artificial ingredients, coloring, etc is unhealthy and unneeded when hydrating (there’s none in LMNT).

EFR 419: Community, Relationships, and Pivots: A Year in Review with May Yazdi Chewning

2020 year-in-review... relationship style! My wife and I look back at lessons learned over the past twelve months. See, for us, 2020 began as a year with a ton of potential, until about mid-February when practically the whole world came to a grinding halt. Career-wise, we continued to work towards a ton of growth, especially May who finally graduated this year to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. What was highlighted for us above all, though, is how our relationship was tempered by the challenges and uncertainties and came out stronger than ever in spite of it all. Join us as we do a deep dive into the life-changing benefits of what a great support system feels like and why you need to nurture yours today.

Listen in as we share how optimism and a willingness to pivot helped us thrive the past year, the power of having a tight network of family and peers to guide us through tough times, and our plea for others to engage with their community more going into 2021.

  • You never know what someone’s going through; so you making one nice comment could totally change the trajectory of where their life was going to go. ~May

  • If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that anything is possible. ~Chase

  • If you’re not coming out of this year with some sort of game plan for change for the betterment of yourself and humanity, you’re doing something wrong. ~May
