Geeky Magic – New Study: Intermittent Fasting Doesn’t Help Weight Loss

If you know me, you know that I believe time-restricted eating—alongside other healthful practices—can be a great way to lose weight and improve metabolic function. 


That’s why, when a new study by Dr. Ethan Weiss was recently published concluding the opposite, I had to dive deeper. Hear about the study, what they found, and what the results mean—and learn why I believe the study ultimately falls short. 


Make sure you get access to the show notes, they are packed with more information, diagrams, and resources for this episode.


For those of you who didn’t catch last week's Geeky Magic, it was about the link between posture and brain health. Listen here. Geeky Magic is a new type of episode I’m adding to the line up to take a step away from the interviews. I’m going to bring you personal insights, FAQ’s, and trending topics in a more condensed, quick, and actionable way.

160: How to Raise Your Energetic Vibration w/ Jay & Monica Campbell
Raising your energetic vibration is something that all women should prioritize throughout their lives. Even if this is something you’ve never thought about before, this episode with Jay and Monica Campbell will enlighten you to the benefits of a high vibe life and give you insight into how to achieve one for yourself. Key Takeaways How to raise your vibration: * Lower your insulin signal * Build muscle * Increase your cardiovascular health/heart rate * Understand the balance between sound body and sound mind About Jay and Monica Campbell A former champion men’s physique competitor and current 4x international best selling author in the optimized health care space, Jay Campbell is a global thought leader on hormones, biohacking, fat loss, and higher consciousness. Jay is a NO-nonsense, authentic, and fully transparent guy (in a day and age when being hyper-masculine is frowned on), and FEARLESS in his servant mission of leading humanity towards full-spectrum optimization of the body-mind, heart, and soul. Since returning from 12 days in The Sacred Valley of Peru, he's experienced a seismic energetic shift manifesting in a profound new focus of raising the collective vibration of humanity so we reach planetary consciousness aka unconditional love. Monica Campbell is the author of Cracking the Fountain of Youth Code: A Woman’s Guide to Being Healthier, Happier, and Empowered for Life. She manifested her perfect love and relationship with Jay into her life and now helps bring fulfillment into other women’s lives. Choosing the Best Version of Yourself What I loved the most about this conversation with Jay and Monica Campbell is Monica’s complete openness about her first marriage and how she raised her own energetic vibration to find Jay. Monica talks about how when her first marriage ended, she turned to a party lifestyle. She thought this would fulfill her, but ultimately, it didn’t, leaving her feeling like something was missing for her. She decided to honor who she truly was inside by learning more about her inner Monica. She knew what qualities she wanted to embody to be the best version of herself and Monica decided to embody them. Jay adds some thoughts regarding how repressed and blocked emotions can impact your overall health. Because blocked emotions can lead to long-term illness, Jay is very intentional about helping others raise their energetic vibration. Raise Your Vibration to Optimize Your Love Creation! Part of this is choosing who you want to be. Jay and Monica talk about how you can intentionally choose the type of person you want to be. And as long as this person is in line with your high vibration being, you will thrive. So how do you raise your vibration? Jay takes us through four ways to start. Lowering your blood insulin level is very important, as is improving your cardiovascular health. He also talks about why building your muscular strength is so important. Finally, Jay provides some insight into understanding the balance you need to achieve between your strong body and your strong mind. He explains that when you work your spiritual and emotional muscles, you raise your energetic vibration. What steps are you taking to raise your energetic vibration? How can you be more present and honoring to yourself? As always, you can ask me anything and let me hear your thoughts in the comments on the episode page.

Just doing it for the general existence of joy and happiness in your life.” [26:42] “We’ve got to understand, as people, as an individual, it’s really up to us to decide how we’re going to show up in the world. When you are in a place of self-acceptance, self-awareness, and self-love, you are able to project that outward and truly make a difference.” [28:21] “The love that you take at an energetic soul level is equal to the love that you make in every lifetime of physical experience.” [36:29] Resources Mentioned Buy Aseir Custom: The Holy-Grail of Anti-Aging Creams.

3 Ways to Make Intermittent Fasting EASIER - Ben Azadi KKP: 206
The number one health search term on Dr Google this year is... Intermittent fasting! For good reason, fasting is one of the most powerful tools in the health shed... ... when it is done right. Most people who practice fasting do not experience the wonderful benefits it has to offer because they simply don't know the rules. There's 3 things you can do to make intermittent fasting easier so you can accelerate fat loss and increase mental clarity. ➡️ Keto Kamp Membership for only $5: The first way to make intermittent fasting easier for you is to build up your fasting muscle by getting keto adapted. When the metabolism has the flexibility to shift from burning through its sugar reserves to tapping into fat stores, this accelerates fat loss and the benefits of fasting. The second way to get better results with fasting is for you to use fasting crutches if you need to. There's certain items you can have during a fast, and still maximize it's benefits. Here are my favorite fasting crutches: * tea * coffee * fats * bone broth The third way to make fasting easier is to break the fast with mostly protein and fat; not carbohydrates and fat. I went live today via my YouTube channel to dig deeper into 3 principles.

#171: All Things Covid: Vitamin D, Masks and More with Chris Kresser
All Things Covid: Vitamin D, Masks and More with Chris Kresser As humans, we often fall into black and white thinking. It can be easy to let the constant waterfall of media information and social snippets wash over us without stopping to think of the full context. In this age of COVID-19, though, it’s more important than ever to pause and look at what the science really has to say. When we slip into confirmation bias and seek out answers that solidify what we already believe, we lose the ability to think critically. Now, more than ever, is the time to change that so we can overcome this pandemic. That’s exactly what Dhru and Chris Kresser talk about on this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast.  Chris Kresser is the CEO of Kresser Institute for Functional & Evolutionary Medicine, the co-director of the California Center for Functional Medicine, the creator of, and the New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Cure. He is known for his in-depth research uncovering myths and misconceptions in modern medicine and providing natural health solutions with proven results. Chris was named one of the 100 most influential people in health and fitness by, and his blog is one of the top-ranked natural health websites in the world. He recently launched Kresser Institute, an organization dedicated to reinventing healthcare and reversing chronic disease by training healthcare practitioners in Functional and Evolutionary Medicine.  In this episode, Dhru and Chris jump into an open conversation about the most pressing COVID topics and what the latest research is showing. Starting with vitamin D, they look at some dramatic results of several studies, with the takeaway being that a majority of COVID patients have been found to have vitamin D deficiency, and those who are vitamin D deficient have higher inflammatory markers and a higher risk of death. They discuss the science behind mask wearing and why it’s a helpful piece of stopping the spread of coronavirus, but only one piece. They also talk about the latest findings of the vaccine trials and what we know, and don’t know.  In this episode, we dive into:  -Vitamin D levels among asymptomatic and critically ill COVID-19 patients and the correlation with inflammatory markers (12:56)  -Randomized control trial of vitamin D (17:26) -Vitamin D testing and supplement recommendations (32:40)  -Why masks are getting so much attention when the data is nuanced (35:28)  -The research on COVID-19 and masks (46:06) -COVID-19 vaccine—what we know and what we don’t know (1:08:14)  -Concerns around the safety of a vaccine when it’s developed so quickly (1:15:37)  -Oxford AstraZeneca phase III vaccine trial and how it differs from Pfizer and Moderna vaccine trials (1:30:42) -Rapid at home COVID testing (1:41:01) -What you can do today to take control of your health (1:49:03)  For more on Chris Kresser, be sure to follow him on Instagram @chriskresser, on Facebook @chriskresserlac, on Twitter @chriskresser, on YouTube @chriskresser, and through his website To learn more about his ADAPT Health Coach Training Program and his ADAPT Practitioner Training Program visit: You can also find his book, The Paleo Cure at Also mentioned in this episode: Vitamin D -   Masks - - -   Vaccines -Dr. Hyman Video: - - -   Testing -   Fluoride -   Alternative Ideas to Lock Downs That Need More Discussion - -Katz COVID Reality Check 21: Left & Right, Right & Wrong, Front & Center For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

Ep. 124 Using Breathing Techniques, Meditation, and Cold Therapy To Stimulate Your Immune System
We are delighted and very excited to have Wim Hof joining us today! Wim is known as The Iceman because he is an extreme athlete who can withstand unbelievably cold temperatures. He has a new book that has recently come out, called The Wim Hof Method: Activate Your Full Human Potential, which has just hit the New York Times Bestseller List. The Wim Hof Method is a combination of cold water exposure, breathing techniques, and meditation. Many of us are feeling overwhelmed with stress right now. Wim explains that we are built to be connected with our stress mechanisms at will to defy any kind of stress. If we don’t go into the stress mechanisms of our brain in the way that nature intended, we leave them unstimulated. Those underdeveloped mechanisms will eventually be unable to work in connection with our will when something truly stressful happens to us. Wim has a lot of wisdom to share, so be sure to stay tuned today to learn about his unique method for coping with stress naturally. IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT: * How we are built to connect with our stress mechanisms at will, to be able to defy any stress. * How the cold quickly connects us with our adaptive powers, thermogenesis, and the deeper parts of our brain. * Connecting with the deeper parts of the brain through the power of your intention. * Why you need to work hard and change your mindset to gain control of * your deeper biological processes. * How breathing techniques, meditation, and cold therapy can stimulate your immune system, change your biochemistry, and heal you. * How to get high on your own supply. * What a typical day looks like for Wim. * Using hormetic stressful exercises to access the RNA. * Using mitochondrial influence to create more energy than you will ever need. * Wim’s new book is The Wim Hof Method: Activate Your Full Human Potential.

Jason Boetcher
In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Jason Boetcher. Jason is a pastor from Kansas City, KS. This episode is brought to you by Green Chef! Green Chef is a USDA certified organic company that makes eating well easy and affordable with plans to fit every lifestyle. Gin’s favorite? The Balanced Living plan. Go to and use promo code ifstories90 to get $90 off. Jason is a Lutheran pastor. He tried many diets over the years, losing 20 pounds with each one. He first heard about IF on the Dr. Oz Show, though he was already familiar with spiritual fasts. Through some research, Jason found Delay, Don't Deny, and the IF Stories Podcast. In January of 2019, he began with a 20:4 protocol, but found he ate too much, and so he switched to 23:1. By the fall of that same year, he had lost 50 pounds, weighing 180 pounds.  But life was about to change. Jason had a persistent cold that would not go away, and one day he found himself unable to breathe while playing soccer. After having a chest x-ray and CT scan, his doctor found an aggressive tumor growing near his esophagus. He was put on steroids and began chemotherapy, which caused Jason to lose his sense of taste for everything...but sugar. He began to eat all day long, which led to a weight gain of 45 pounds.  In March of 2020, the treatments were completed and the tumor was gone! Jason was desperate to get back to IF, but after experiencing some fainting spells, he needed to wait.  By May of 2020, Jason was able to fast again. He is currently 180 pounds, and his ultimate goal is 165 pounds. Jason has cut out sugar and soda, and is following an ADF (Alternate Day Fasting) protocol.  Jason's advice for new IFers: "Be patient and kind to yourself in the beginning. Try longer fasts. The process will work. You might not lose as fast as you'd like, but it will happen."  Get Gin’s books, including her latest New York Times Bestseller, Fast. Feast.
