Fast This Way with Dave Asprey
Play • 1 hr 17 min

Today on the show we have the Father of Biohacking himself, Dave Asprey. Over twenty-five years ago, Dave found himself overweight, overworked, and an unhealthy entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. He was faced with a choice: improve his health, or live a much shorter life span. That set him on an almost multi-decade journey to not only live, but thrive and share his knowledge with his community. That work lead to him founding Bulletproof 360, a company helping to uncover innovative methods, techniques, and products for enhancing mental and physical performance. Yet it doesn't stop there. He has also written two New York Times bestselling books and is host of the award winning podcast Bulletproof radio. And yes, he is the creator of the global phenomenon Bulletproof Coffee and Bulletproof diet.

In this episode we get into Dave's latest book, Fast This Way: Burn Fat, Heal Inflammation, and Eat Like the High-Performing Human You Were Meant to Be. Some of the topics we over:

  • common myths around fasting
  • how to exercise while fasting
  • how to hack your sleep for increased energy
  • how fasting drives mental clarity and can help you live longer
  • how variation in what we do creates resilience
  • and so much more

Enjoy!

The Power of Movement with Ido Portal
If you follow UFC and Conor McGregor, you already know him as the man who taught Conor how to move like a monkey. But you also might already know him as a world-renowned movement teacher of all disciplines. I’ve never met someone quite like Ido Portal. He is an obsessed student of movement and the body — which means he has also become an incredible teacher. Ido started studying different kinds of movement when he was a kid, got into martial arts, and from there traveled the world for years studying as many disciplines as he could. But he couldn’t find someone who could teach him what he was looking for — how our bodies are built to move and what they are fully capable of. He became the teacher he was looking for, and over the past decade and more, he has developed a world-wide movement culture. Not only has this caught the attention of elite athletes like Conor McGregor, he has also inspired millions of people to move their bodies in new ways through his workshops and social media. I was so impressed with Ido’s wisdom, clarity, and dedication to his craft. I’ve met few teachers like him and I was so inspired to keep moving my body in new ways after this conversation. Get ready to re-define what you think your body is built for in Episode 532. In This Episode, You Will Learn:Why being a good student is a missing art (8:12)Why there is no mastery of movement (11:30)The issue behind pro athletes getting depressed when they retire (26:15)Basic stretches Ido recommends doing daily to improve your body’s functionality (39:06)The most underrated factor in quality of life (40:20)The problem with “working out” (41:25)Why the story you tell yourself is more powerful than reality (1:03:10)How to practice meditation effectively (1:09:45)Why stillness is just as important as movement (1:14:00)Plus much more… Learn more about your ad choices.

EP 3 - Why Valentine's Day Isn't About Love! feat. Dr. Sari van Anders & Will Beischel
Today on the show I’m answering your questions about love - what is it? How do we know when we’re in it? What is the media telling us about love? And, what is the difference between love and lust? My interview with Dr. Sari van Anders and Will Beischel offers an important dialogue on what that difference is and provides an actually useful theory for us to better understand ourselves in the world.

Lessons From 'The Line' Into L&D - with Paul Jocelyn
Working for so long in operational and senior leadership roles prior to a career in Learning & Development will shape anyone’s view of the value of L&D but also its potential. In this episode, this is discussed with Paul Jocelyn who had a 28 year career at Tesco, the first half in stores management and the second half at Head Office. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes we are so focussed upon the goals in the near future, that we fail to recognise the monumental shifts we are a part of. Those of us in a more operational role prior to our joining the L&D world, have a rarer insight into the needs of others, and how learning can be better implemented. L&D itself is changing as the result of the way the working landscape in general has changed. As expectations change, so too must the way in which deliver solutions. The most effective learning always comes from the people who have walked the path before us. We learn far more from experience than we do from a handbook. BEST MOMENTS 'It was much more of a learning organisation that it gives itself credit for' 'Throughout that time it was an organisation that clearly pushed boundaries' 'Being in second place and wanting to overtake was very much part of the psyche early on' 'It was the experience, the3 environment and the challenges, rather than a handbook or a process flow' VALUABLE RESOURC ES The Learning And Development Podcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-learning-development-podcast/id1466927523 ABOUT THE GUEST Paul has more than 25 years of corporate senior leadership experience in Operations, Business Transformation, Marketing, Capability Building and Learning and Development in the UK and internationally.  As a consultant, advisor and speaker Paul works with organisations with the new challenges of:  How do we build a learning business – with the new capabilities and confidence we need to help us adapt and grow in a complex world?

E69: Grace Beverley: How To Build A Multi-Million Pound Empire At 24
Grace is an entrepreneur, brand founder, influencer and Oxford University graduate who defied expectations and took her post-grad journey in an unexpected direction by launching 2 major brands: [We Are] TALA (sustainable, slow fashion activewear label) and fitness app Shreddy.  TALA’s performance since its launch in 2019 shows it to be one of the biggest positive disruptors in the gymwear space both in the UK and overseas. At the core of the brand is a focus on ethical, eco-efficient manufacture practices. The designs are inclusive in terms of size and shape range: Grace has spoken of the importance of personalising your fitness and health journey rather than subscribing to what's most popular or promoted on social media etc.  Grace has remained outspoken on the challenges faced by women in business, even in 2021. A social conscience runs through all three of her companies: up-cycled offcuts and recyclable materials are incorporated into products from TALA while remaining available to consumers at affordable prices.  Grace also used to vlog her daily life with great success, sharing her ups and downs as a 20-something year-old. Longtime subscribers of hers have had the chance to join her on a more personal journey. She however stepped away from vlogging a year ago to pursue her business ventures. Grace launched both Shreddy and TALA within a month of her final university exams. She is frequently discussed by followers for her drive and ability to be able to take on multiple projects at once with tons of enthusiasm.  Shreddy has received widespread press coverage since its launch, and Grace has recently pulled off a major partnership with celeb/influencer Jordyn Woods in LA, as well as collaborations with brands such as KOI footwear (an exclusive line of vegan footwear released in 2019).  - How did you have the confidence to pursue such an uncertain career  - How does it feel being discredited for what you've done?  - Sacrifice of business   - Your mental health - Relationships as a young successful woman - How has being a successful person changed you?   - Your take on working culture  - By stepping back from social media did you let the negativity win?  - What area of business are you best at?  - What area of business are you bad at?  - Instagram  - Any big regrets? - Worries about your book - How do you battle with all your ideas Grace: https://www.instagram.com/gracebeverley/?hl=en Sponsors: https://uk.huel.com/ www.fiverr.com/ceo  My book pre-order:  (UK, US, AUS, NZ Link) - http://hyperurl.co/xenkw2 (EU & Rest of the World Link) https://www.bookdepository.com/Happy-Sexy-Millionaire-Steven-Bartlett/9781529301496?ref=grid-view&qid=1610300058833&sr=1-2

Optimize Your Brain with Science-based Tools | Episode 8
Huberman Lab Podcast Notes Key Takeaways * Achieving plasticity is the first step in optimizing your brain, not the end goal * Leverage periods of natural wakefulness and sleepiness anchored to core biology * The goal is to have energy and focus to pursue and energy and focus to suppress action – not flow state * For learning while alert, the ideal background is quiet or silent * For learning while sleepy or tired: the best scenario is some background noise to trigger autonomic arousal * Eating shifts us toward state of calm; fasting shifts us toward a state of alertness * Creativity has two parts: (1) creative discovery mode – more random, facilitated by relaxed and sleepy states; (2) linear implementation mode – facilitated by alertness * Some tips for more wakefulness everyday: get sunlight exposure first thing in the morning, delay caffeine intake for two hours to give endogenous hormones a chance, drink water upon waking, exercise within the first three hours of waking Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.org In this episode, I describe how to access focused learning bouts, creative states, and the underlying neural circuitry involved. I frame this in the context of our daily 24-hour cycle in order to make it practical, clear and precise about timing. I review the role of fasting, meal timing and specific types of nutrients for promoting certain states of mind. I also review various other tools and biological factors that directly or indirectly gate brain function and that we can control. I answer commonly asked questions about the science of psychedelics, binaural beats, and visualization. Thank you for your interest in science!
