Listener Q&A: What To Do About Cold Hands & Feet...28:10

Jason asks: Hey, Ben.  I'm 46 years old and I've got cold hands. They get worse in the winter time, but they're cool in the summer. Probably I'm thinking Raynaud's, but I don't want to claim that. I'm open to any feedback you have on maybe how to make it better, fix - physiology, neurology supplements, testing, breath work, etc. I'm open to all of it. Any help is much appreciated.

What's The Best Pre-Workout Formula?...38:37

Preston asks:What's up Ben Preston here, long time listener, constant applier of everything you talk about on podcasts and in Boundless. But when it comes right down to it, I'm still wanting to take a scoop of pre-workout (powder) dump it in the mixer, shake it up and go wrap it out with the bros at the gym. So what's the deal with pre-workout powder and how much stimulant should I be intaking on a daily basis. I'm going to the gym every day, but I'm using pre-workout three, four times a week. Love to hear your thoughts.

In my response, I recommend:  Should Teens Fast?...46:20

Rama asks: Hey, Ben, my name is Rama. I am 16 years old and I am curious how much fasting and intermittent fasting would you recommend for a teenager like me to avoid or even improve my running performance and also how much is too much exercise for my health. Thank you very much. Love you, Ben.

How to Control Your Blood Sugar & Spike Your Energy – Levels Health with Dave Asprey : 797
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is an engineer with expertise in metabolic dysfunction. Josh Clemente co-founded Levels Health, a company that has designed a biowearable continuous glucose monitoring device. The idea of using blood glucose, which is a marker for how much of the most common energy is available in the blood right now and how good is your body at regulating it, is a real-time feedback thing. It's really powerful. When he was working at SpaceX, he discovered his metabolic dysfunction and high glucose levels were making him feel like garbage. He read about continuous glucose monitoring, and shortly thereafter found out he was borderline pre-diabetic, despite being a CrossFit trainer at the time and having a healthy diet. Over 120 million people in the U. S. have prediabetes or diabetes, and most American adults don’t know even they’re prediabetic. Most people don’t know their glucose levels unless they find out at an annual doctor’s appointment. Using Levels technology, we can change that. “If our population isn't resilient enough to have an immune system that can fight viral infections because it is frankly undermined or hampered by insulin resistance and all of the byproducts thereof, we won't ever get there,” Josh says. “So, it is incumbent on each individual person, and I think also on society in general, to improve our metabolic health and therefore the resilience of our entire population.” Continuous glucose monitoring is crossing a barrier in health monitoring because it’s going below the skin “to an invisible metric that we otherwise wouldn't have access to” Josh explains. Biowearables is a brand-new space. Our conversation walks you through how the Levels app works, the urban myths behind “heart healthy” foods, and how tracking your glucose levels can get you better in tune with what your body really needs.  “The data set is a means to changing the future of metabolic health by driving large scale research and helping us to understand how people are living, what is improving outcomes, and where the opportunity is to remove the biggest offenders for worse health,” Josh says. “The Levels app was developed for the management of diabetes,” he continues. “But we're showing that the opportunity to ultimately give people the empowerment and their health and wellness before they have something go wrong is here to stay.” Enjoy!

Dr. Caroline Leaf: Neuroplasticity and How Your Thoughts Can Influence Your DNA
What is a thought? Where are our thoughts located? What weight do our thoughts have?  In this episode of the Align Podcast, Dr. Caroline Leaf and I discuss what defines the concept of thoughts and how exactly they affect our body and our DNA. In fact, the human brain is capable to identify toxic and negative thoughts and treat them as foreign invaders, similar to how our bodies react to foreign invaders that attack our immune system. Plus, Dr. Leaf shares with us a proven 5 step process that is designed to help us overcome trauma, depression, anxiety, and more.  Dr. Caroline Leaf is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist, specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology. She has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. Dr. Leaf is also the bestselling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and many more.   What we discuss: 02:02: What is a thought?

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” -Alice Walker Over the past year, a lot has changed. Many of us have had to pivot our work situations, how we educate our children, and how we connect with our loved ones. Some folks have struggled to make ends meet and lost access to important outlets like gyms and therapists. Even worse, some people have experienced loss. Pandemic fatigue has set in, leaving many people feeling exhausted, burnt out, and pushed to their limits.

The Best of Muscle For Life: Mind Pump Interview, Ultimate Fitness Plan For Women, and Principles
I’ve recorded hundreds of episodes of Muscle for Life on a huge variety of things related to health, fitness, and lifestyle, ranging from the basics of diet and exercise like energy and macronutrient balance and progressive overload and training frequency and volume to fads like the ketogenic and carnivore diet and collagen protein to more unfamiliar territories like body weight set point and fasted cardio. Some episodes resonate with my crowd more than others, but all of them contain at least a few key takeaways that just about anyone can benefit from (that’s what I tell myself at least). And as cool as that is, it poses a problem for you, my dear listener: Ain’t nobody got time for that. Well okay, some people do make the time to listen to most or even all of my podcasts, but my wizbang analytics tell me that while many listeners tune in on a regular basis, they don’t catch every installment of Muscle for Life and thus miss out on insights that could help them get a little better inside and outside the gym. People have also been saying they’d like me to do more shorter, multi-topic episodes, like my Q&As. And so I got an idea: how about a “best of” series of podcasts that contains a few of the most practical and compelling ideas, tips, and moments from my most popular episodes? This way, people who are new to the show can quickly determine if it’s for them or not, and those who enjoy what I’m doing but don’t have the time or inclination to listen to all of my stuff can still benefit from the discussions and find new episodes to listen to. So, in this installment of The Best of Muscle for Life, you’ll be hearing hand-picked morsels from three episodes: _My Interview on Mind Pump Media_ _(Originally published August 23rd, 2017)_ _The Ultimate Fitness Plan for Women_ _(Originally published November 21st, 2018)_ _Book Club: My Top 5 Takeaways from Principles by Ray Dalio_ _(Originally published October 8th, 2018)_ And we’ll be starting with number one, My Interview on Mind Pump Media 5:51 - My Interview on Mind Pump Media 14:28 - The Ultimate Fitness Plan for Women 23:19 - Book Club: My Top 5 Takeaways from Principles by Ray Dalio Mentioned on The Show: Legion VIP One-on-One Coaching: _https://buylegion.com/vip__ _ _https://anchor.fm/muscleforlife/episodes/My-Interview-on-Mind-Pump-Media-eei637_ _https://legionathletics.com/fitness-plan-women-podcast/_ _https://legionathletics.com/principles-book-review/_ --- Want free workout and meal plans?

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.

Fringe Supplement Stacks You've Never Heard Of, The Best Nootropic Combinations, The Latest Keto Support Compounds, Supplements That Act Like "Exercise In A Bottle" & Much More With Shawn Wells
bengreenfieldfitness.com/energyformula If there's anything people say they want more of these days...it's energy. The world around us continually requires more from us while we give less and less thought to our long-term health. This distracted and overwhelmed mindset has landed us squarely in survival mode, depriving us of the necessary steps to create lasting, sustained energy. The truth is most of us are so exhausted and don't know how to find the energy to live our best lives. My friend Shawn Wells just put the finishing touches on his new book The ENERGY Formula: Six Life Changing Ingredients to Unleash Your Limitless Potential... ...which covers keto, Paleo, biohacking, stoicism, supplements, CBD, nootropics, MCTs, infrared saunas, cold plunges, how to create a sleep fortress, circadian rhythm, and much more. With about 60 full-color diagrams and over 100 scientific citations, Shawn gives you the knowledge you will not find anywhere else, including "Formulator's Corners" in every chapter that cover doses, brands, and forms of supplements you need to be taking as well as "Resource Hacks" that tell you the products, devices, apps, and more to use. Developed by biochemist, dietitian, sports nutritionist, and formulation scientist Shawn Wells after surviving a series of torturous health battles, this pivotal and groundbreaking book is the product of meticulous and persistent research to find solutions to his personal and painful experiences—paired with two decades of legitimate clinical and scientific expertise. Shawn previously joined me on the podcast episode "The Nitty-Gritty Underground World of Supplement Ingredients, Sports Nutrition Frankenfuels, Illegally Laced Compounds & More.," and he's been studying up on plenty more since that show, so prepare for a wild ride on today's podcast. Shawn, who is an MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN, is a leading nutritional biochemist and expert on health optimization. He has formulated over 500 supplements, foods, beverages, and cosmeceuticals, has patented 10 novel ingredients, and is now known as the Ingredientologist—the scientist of ingredients. Formerly a chief clinical dietitian with over a decade of clinical experience, he has counseled thousands of people on natural health solutions such as keto, paleo, fasting, and supplements. He has also personally overcome various health issues including Epstein-Barr virus, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, depression, insomnia, obesity, and a pituitary tumor. As a world-renowned thought leader on mitochondrial health, he has been paid to speak on five different continents. His insights have been prominently featured in documentaries, nationally syndicated radio programs, and regularly on morning television. Shawn's expertise can help any health-conscious individual to better manage stress and experience higher performance and more energy through utilizing his practical research-backed solutions.

Optimize Your Brain with Science-based Tools | Episode 8
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!
