Jamie Kern Lima | Just Watch Me
Jamie Kern Lima thought she’d spend her life in the world of broadcast TV, where after graduating, she began working her way up as a journalist, then eventually news anchor where a bright career was laid out in front of her. Then, the camera started picking up a genetic skin condition that she struggled to hide and threatened to derail what she’d worked for. That experience set in motion a quest that eventually led her out of broadcast journalism and into the world of entrepreneurship where she’d eventually found IT Cosmetics, a company she started in her living room and would eventually sell to L’Oreal for $1.2 Billion, becoming the first female CEO in L’Oreal’s 100+ year history.  Her journey, though, was anything but smooth, with years of 100+ hour weeks, living hand-to-mouth, miles of no’s and countless dark nights of the soul and even a single moment that would either shut the company down or launch them into the stratosphere, which by the way, it did. Jamie is passionate about inspiring and mentoring entrepreneurs, building businesses, making a difference in the lives of women and girls and giving back in a big way. Her book, Believe IT: How to Go from Underestimated to Unstoppable (https://amzn.to/3uqLXak), shares her story and many of the big insights she’s now sharing with aspiring creators and founders.

Initial signs of depression and anxiety can manifest through minor issues like losing your nerves about your in-laws or getting angry for no reason at all. But what if there is a way to fight depression with the food you eat? What might surprise you: Your current diet might be the source of your anxiety and depression. Your mood is directly impacted by what you eat. With the proper evidence-based nutrition, it is possible to take control of anxiety, boost your mood and live a life full of joy. In this episode of Health Theory, Tom Bilyeu is joined by Nutritional Psychiatrist, Men’s Health advisor, and author Drew Ramsey to discuss such matters and more as they explore the current state of depression. They also explain why nutrition is the easiest way of influencing depression positively and uncover a psychological lever to reduce your anxiety. Furthermore they disclose the way your anxiety is influenced by the foods you eat, which foods you should avoid and finally why you shouldn´t lose hope if you currently struggle with mental illness.   PRE-ORDER DR. RAMSEY'S BOOK: https://amzn.to/2ZRDTBq   SHOW NOTES: The current state of depression. [01:05] Why nutrition is the easiest way of influencing depression positively. [1:25] A psychological lever to reduce your anxiety. [2:41] How your anxiety is influenced by the food you eat and the food that causes Tom anxiety. [3:36] What creates lasting change, and how to lead with kindness to change behavior. [6:44] Why most diets fail. [8:40] The food basics almost every Nutritional Psychiatrist agrees on and why they matter. [9:25] Drew reveals the things that are NOT part of every good diet. [12:03] One thing Tom and Drew disagree on. [14:29] Why knowing where your food comes from can help you cure loneliness. [19:11] The big benefits of eating seafood and the top 3 kinds of seafood to beat depression. [24:40] How Omega 3 fats in seafood work like snipers in your immune system. [28:00] Drew´s on being vegan and which fats are bad for you. [30:25] What you should rather do than buying expensive tests and supplements. [33:35] How moving away from New York to a farm improved the mental health of Drew. [34:34] Why you shouldn´t lose hope if you currently struggle with mental illness. [42:29]     QUOTES: “It´s an epidemic. Everything is going up. Depression is up...Recently showing male depression is up 60-70% over the last 12 months.” [1:05] “They found that the risk of depression during quarantine, if your nutrition is bad, went up over 1000%.“ [1:55] “There are foods that people need to cut out of their diet. Diets need to change drastically…” [7:15] “All good diets are lacking ultra-processed foods. The reason I think they´re evil because of the way they increase inflammation.” [12:12]   “We did a research study where we said: When we look at all the literature, what are the top nutrients that are most important for brain health and helping depression? Twelve nutrients stand out. So we asked ourselves: What foods have the most of these 12 nutrients? Aside from plants, 3 of the top 5 foods were seafood.” [26:00]   “I have treated people with every type of mental illness, and it´s actually what gives me hope. It´s what gives me strength and resilience. I have seen people who have it so hard with what happens in their minds, and to see them just do amazing things: Start companies, have families, whatever it is, makes me very hopeful.“ [42:57]   FOLLOW DR.
