Play • 1 hr 2 min

Welcome to the Siim Land Podcast. My name is Siim Land and today we talk with Alex Tarnava. Alex is the founder and CEO of DrinkHRW, which is a company that sells molecular hydrogen tablets.

Molecular hydrogen is one of the most potent antioxidants in nature and it has a lot of health benefits. As Alex and I will discuss in this episode, molecular hydrogen is like a hormesis molecule that will either lower inflammation or stimulate the nervous system depending on what is needed. I like to drink it in the morning and it feels great for relieving inflammation or tiredness.

This episode is brought to you by KAATSU Training. KAATSU bands incorporate blood flow moderation training that tricks the body into thinking it lifts much heavier weights than it actually is. When traditional weight lifting requires you to reach 70-80% of your 1 repetition maximum to stimulate muscle hypertrophy, then KAATSU achieves that effect only at 20-30%. So, it’s perfect for treating injuries or used when you don’t have access to heavyweights.

Research about KAATSU bands also shows it lowers blood pressure, speeds up recovery from injuries, releases stem cells, builds muscle, burns fat and prevents age-related muscle loss. PLUS, you can travel with them easily and still get a good workout on the road. If you want to try out the KAATSU Cycle bands, then use the code SIIM for a 10% Discount at kaatsu-global.com! That’s kaatsu-global.com and the 10% code is SIIM.

Brian Sanders - Filmmaker of Food Lies & Health Coach
Part 113 - Ben Pakulski on How to Overcome Your Genetics (and Past), the Most Efficient Way to Build Muscle, and How to Eat
Welcome back everyone! I’m Brian Sanders and this is Peak Human - the podcast where you start back at episode 1! I met Ben at our Toronto MeatUp in 2019 and really like him - maybe it’s because he eats pretty similar to how I do - 2 Sapien meals per day of mostly animal foods and low anti-nutrient plant foods on the side. Seriously though he’s really great and has an awesome mindset on pretty much everything. Goes way beyond building muscle - which is important for absolutely everyone listening. It’s not about being a bodybuilder and we don’t talk much about that - it’s about effectively doing some kind of workout to carry some lean muscle mass which everyone needs and will benefit them as they age. His info is legit - I already have been getting a better workout since we recorded this episode last week. I took some of his advice and went slower, stayed under control and focused on the muscles I was trying to work and was sore the next for the first time. Gyms are still closed in LA so all I have is my living room yet I was still able to train my muscles hard in my little 15 min routine I do. We actually talk way more about the mental side to diet, health, and living a meaningful life. This really was a great episode that touched on so many important topics that haven't been explored with previous guests.

Keto Savage Robert Sikes | This is how you build muscle on the keto diet KKP: 227
Today, I am blessed to have here with me a lifetime natural competitive bodybuilder, Robert Orion Sikes. Robert started Keto Savage to help motivate and educate others about the importance of following your passions and getting the results you want. Robert wakes up early, he works his A@$ off, and he sees results. Robert is no different than you; any success he has experienced this far is attainable for anybody willing to put in the work. We live in an era where everything is automatic, everything is superficial, and everything is expected for nothing. That life does not create greatness; it destroys it. The Keto Savage site will empower those who crave intensity, dedication, discipline, hard work, and sacrifice. In this episode, Robert Orion Sikes reveals the inspiration behind his brand, Keto Savage. As one of the first keto bodybuilders, Robert knew he needed to document his journey. Robert has been in ketosis for six years; he explains how he stays so disciplined. When you love what you do, it’s easy to say disciplined. So, learn how to love keto foods and to do amazing things for your body. Tune in as we speak about Robert’s Keto Brick, how to break a plateau, and we talk about big tech censorship. / / E P I S O D E S P ON S O R S PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): http://www.purelifescience.com Use ben4 for $4.00 off. ☕️ Purity Coffee: http//:www.ketokampcoffee.com, use ketokamp at checkout for 10% off [00:30] About Robert Orion Sikes * As a bodybuilder, Robert was shredded, but he sacrificed his health. * He developed eating disorders that left him in a dark place. * Plus, Robert fell into a deep debt; he got depressed and suicidal. * So, Robert tried keto. His cravings went away, and he felt much better. * Everyone at the gym would tell Robert that he couldn’t get big on carbs. However, Robert went fully keto, and he still competed as a bodybuilder. Robert has looked back since. [05:45] How Robert Will Stay Disciplined * The secret to Robert’s discipline is loving the process. * You can’t become a bodybuilder overnight; it takes years and years of weightlifting. * The more you work at something, the better you get. * Bodybuilding involves an obsessive amount of discipline. As long as you embrace it, then you will find success. [07:45] What To Know When Starting Keto * Know your “why” and understand what drives you. * Also, knowing your “why” will help if you have a long-term view of what you want to accomplish. That way, you’ll be excited about what you do every single day. * Getting healthy isn’t a good enough “why.” Instead, your “why” should be about the people in your life. You owe it to your family to stay healthy. [11:50] About The Keto Brick * The Keto Brick sold out in two minutes. * The bricks are great for backpacking, hunting, and running. The brick is 1,000 calories with 90 grams of fat. * Every ingredient has the purpose of optimizing your performance. * The momentum and support for Robert’s Keto Bricks keep coming. * Keto products should not have seed oils or any sweeteners. * If there are more protein and carbs than fat, then that isn’t keto. * Get Keto Bricks: https://www.ketobrick.com [19:15] Building Muscle On Keto * If you are implementing progressive overload and increasing your training, you will build muscle in the context of being in a caloric surplus. * Fuel your growth through adequate calories. * Within eight days, Robert will hit each muscle group twice. * Robert doesn’t do a ton of cardio. He likes to run as a meditative type of exercise. * If you’re doing cardio, do it after your strength training. Use it as a cool down rather than a warmup. [24:00] How To Break A Plateau * Many women chronically undereat. Their metabolic baseline has been so down-regulated that there’s not much room for them to improve. * So, women need to upregulate their metabolism. * Trying a calorie surplus will help upregulate your metabolism. * When you have a calorie surplus, that doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you want. * Having a cheat meal will have negative psychological effects. Instead, focus on desiring things that will improve your wellbeing. * Keto flexing will help your good cells get stronger. [33:20] About Big Tech Censorship * Robert is doubling-down on his own website. * He is revamping the entire website so big tech will not censor his macro content. * That way, he won’t have to rely on social platforms to be his end-all be-all.

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here Show Notes: News topic du jour: Immunological memory to SARS-CoV-2 assessed for up to 8 months after infection POWERPOINT 1. Ketosis and Perimenopause [21:47] Tammy says: I have been practicing a keto diet leaning toward carnivore for 3+ months. I've been struggling to stay in ketosis (daily blood testing), and have been unable to identify the reasons for my sometimes dramatic swings in glucose and ketone numbers. I do have "bad food decision" days, but the numbers don't seem to correlate. I'm middle aged and believe I am perimenopausal. Could the hormone fluctuations be cause my ketosis struggles? Side note: I'm working with a Naturopath to keep my nutrition focused. Thank you for your time and information! Tammy 2. Eating Liver [25:55] Valérie says: Hey Robb and Nicki! First I have to say I am so glad to be part of THR. Thanks for all the work you do & content you provide. Here's a bit of background info before I ask my questions: I I have been trying to incorporate more organs in my diet because with all the info out there, it seems like the way to go for optimal health. I also cannot tolerate many veggies (I eat mostly beef, fish, eggs, kimchi, beets, carrots, kefir, some sweet potatoes and honey on occasion) so I worry that I am not getting all the nutrients I need with such a limited array of food choices. I have added bone marrow (which I tolerate well) and liver. Liver, however, does not sit well with me: every time I eat it I feel sick afterwards (not necessarily nauseous, but just an overall feeling of being unwell) and it lasts a few hours. First question: what could be causing this? Second: Is liver all the hype it's been touted out to be? Can I still reach optimal health without incorporating it into my diet.. what do you two suggest? Thanks a million! :-) 3. Protein, Calories, and the Missing Link [31:23] Lindsey: Hi Nicki and Robb! Love the podcast and the resources on the website. Thanks for providing logical and fair information for people to tap into. Also, Robb--I love it when you use the term "noodling" and am trying to bring it into the everyday vocabulary of my college students (they don't think it's "cool" enough yet.) Quick background info--37 year old female, 5'5", 168lbs, around 34% BF, extremely familiar with Paleo and Keto (even did Paleo-Zone back when it was cool). Strength training 2-3 times a week, HIITs 1-2 times a week, walking every day. Saw Robb speak in Flagstaff, Arizona back in 2008, believe it or not. About a year ago, I became desperate because I wasn't losing fat despite my strict adherence to Paleo. I thought maybe a coach could help me figure out "the key" to whatever I was missing. I decided to grab a Layne Norton coach (low fat, high carb, high protein) who kept lowering my calories and upping my cardio, and wouldn't allow strength training. Even he was surprised at my almost non-existent rate of loss. I ended the program at 1100 calories and about 5lbs lost....which was great, but horribly unsustainable. My body only began losing a tiny bit once I was at or below the 1200 calorie mark. I felt like poop. I've since gained that weight back and have been doing the Paleo/keto lifestyle. I feel better and stronger, but I am uncomfortable with the fat accumulation. I feel like I'm back at square one and none the better for it. My question centers on fat loss and its relationship to protein and overall calories. You've both said that oftentimes the key to fat loss is protein intake (1g per pound of body weight). However, If my body only loses at very low calorie 1000-1200 a day, but I need to eat 150g of protein a day, that doesn't leave much room for anything else. What am I missing here? Why is my body so hell-bent on keeping that body fat? I was told by the former coach that I may just need to suffer at low calorie/high protein until I reach my goals, but I don't think it should be this difficult or I should have to run my body into the ground to fit into my jeans again. I'm not trying to be a swimsuit competitor, just want to be a bit leaner and stronger while seeing steady fat loss improvements. Don't even care about the number on the scale. Quick note--I've been out of that LN program for about 9 months. I haven't been eating like an asshat and have tried several times to lose fat and keep my calories down, but all I seem to do is gain. I'm a wee bit frustrated because the fat used to fall off when I while eating Paleo between 25-35 years old. Thanks for your considerations! 4. Hair Loss and Sleep Issues on Keto [40:03] Bre says: Hi Robb and Nicki, I absolutely LOVE your podcast. I credit you both to literally changing my health and the health of my family. I found your podcast when I was in a very desperate health place. Through your advice and books, I have found healing, vitality, and freedom. Thank you so much! I pray you keep doing what you are doing for a very long time. Some quick context before asking my two questions: I am a 43 year old female. 5 foot 4, and 150 lbs. I am moderatley active - walk a few miles a day, weightlift a few times a week. But I do work at a desk all day as well. I had thyroid cancer and a full thyroidectomy 10 years ago. I have taken synthroid and cytomel since. My endocrinologist aims to keep my TSH pretty suppressed to keep risk of returning cancer low, so he has kept me between a .1 - 1.0 for the last ten years. Before finding the Keto/Carnivore diet a year ago, I felt like I was dying and not a single doctor could help me. Turns out, I was just a hormonal storm with insulin resistance/leptin resistance, etc. For the last year, I have strictly followed a clean Keto diet, mostly consisting of eggs, beef, ground turkey, bone broth, and greek yogurt with the occasional salad or some berries. My macros are consistently: 70 g protein, 50 g fat, 10 g carbs. (after a decade of eating around 1200 calories (non-keto), I have needed to keep my total calories at or around 900-1000 in order to lose. If I go any higher, I just don't lose. I am 5lbs away from hitting my 50lb weight loss goal! But most importantly, I feel amazing for the first time since having my thyroid out. My skin is great, my energy is off the charts, I no longer have GI issues, and my moods and cycles have stabilized. Overall, I feel like a million bucks (except for two little issues) My questions are: 1) - my sleep sucks. I sleep super light, feel like I can never get into a deep sleep, and wake up several times a night, often not being able to fall back asleep. Up until going Keto, I had never suffered with sleep issues. I take NED's sleep CBD, do blue light blocking glasses at night, no screen time, etc. I have a great bed and make my room pitch black (also use Blueblox's sleep mask). No matter what I do, I just can't sleep deep. I am desperate to sleep deep and through the night again, help! 2) - my hair is falling out at concerning speed. Also something I feel has been triggered by my diet. I take Perfect Keto's Collagen, and I take Biotomizer's magnesium, zinc, and vitamin b complex. Is there anything else I can add in to the supplement mix to help with this? I should mention, because sleep and hair loss can be thryoid level issues, I did just get my levels checked. They are right where they have always been for the last few years (except free T3 was a little lower than normal). Here's my results from last week: TSH: .2 Free T4: 1.16 Free T3: 2.75 Fasting Blood Sugar: 77 Can you help? Like I said, I am desperate to sleep again. Thank you! Bre 5.

This episode is about Electrolytes, Water Retention, Protein & Ketones on Keto and Carnivore with Dr. Angela Stanton. Part 2 of 2 episodes, with part 1 out Monday of this week. "I am a migraine expert by default because I have been a migraine sufferer since my childhood. My doctorate is in a field of neuroscience that incorporates several specialties with the focus on neurotransmitters associated with decision-making. Economic games and heavy mathematics are used in this field of research. My official degree is doctorate in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience. This field is referred to as Neuroeconomics. I now study how the brain and nutrition interrelate. I specifically focus on migraine as a channelopathy, where electrolyte imbalance induced by glucose sensitivity and carbs intolerance is causing havoc. My latest book “Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: A Complete Guide. How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicines” is available in paperback and e-book all over the world (https://www.amazon.com/Fighting-Migraine-Epidemic-Migraines-Medicines-ebook/dp/B076BZG2V3). I am currently working on a ketosis book (the various ways of eating, such as carnivore, ketogenic, and even the low carbs high fat, that can get a person into ketosis) that is custom tailored to migraineurs, because their reaction to nutrition is so different from others and because they need so different electrolytes.

Ben Got COVID (& What He Did About It), How To Fix Issues With Your Brain, The "God Cap" For Neurofeedback, Do Home Neurofeedback Devices Work & More With Dr. Andrew Hill.
bengreenfieldfitness.com/peakbrainpodcast Special Announcement: In the beginning of this episode, I describe how I got COVID and what I did about it. Enjoy!       Back in 2017, I visited the Peak Brain Institute in Los Angeles, California for a special type of advanced brain scan and brain mapping system called a quantified electroencephalography, or "QEEG", and I was shocked at what they discovered in my brain.     Dr. Andrew Hill, my guest on today's show, oversaw the entire mapping protocol. Dr. Hill, a UCLA trained cognitive neuroscientist, lecturer, discovered what he described as some pretty severe patterns of excess stressful beta waves, excess theta waves, and excess delta waves in my brain.     What's that mean, exactly? Basically, it suggests that I had some history of concussions and traumatic brain injury (which I indeed have had, in everything from football to mountain biking to kickboxing), as well as built-up deficits of attention, increased distractibility, limited sleep potential and less-than-optimal cognitive performance from life, travel, toxins, head injuries and beyond.     Two months after the scan, I hopped on a plane back to LA, and ventured back into the Peak Brain Institute for three days of intensive training to fix my brain, returning to Spokane with a briefcase packed with a laptop, electrodes, conducting gel, and everything I needed to use neurofeedback to fix my brain. The next three months I trained for 30 minutes every other day using a style of neurofeedback I can best describe as "meditation on steroids". Mostly, my protocol involved flying a spaceship with my mind. Each time my brain subconsciously shifted into brainwave patterns considered to be unfavorable, the spaceship would stop flying and the music generated by the neurofeedback software would fade away, very much like a cognitive "slap on the wrist".     So how exactly does neurofeedback work? Technically, it's a non-invasive form of what is known in the medical industry as "central nervous system biofeedback". It trains the brain to develop new resources by encouraging certain areas to raise or lower the amplitude and ratios of particular brainwaves. To a very large extent, and unlike peripheral biofeedback such as practicing a physical exercise like a handstand, neurofeedback is an entirely non-voluntary process in which you are shaping the brain giving the brain feedback only when it's doing certain things. Professional clinicians report that about 90% of users notice a significant positive impact from this style of training, and it can be used for everything from decreasing anxiety and stress to inducing faster sleep onset to even resetting tolerance to marijuana and alcohol.     Neurofeedback training simply involves the placement of electrodes on the scalp, which produces a signal then picked up by an EEG amplifier. These signals are fed into software that then sends back to the user some form of visual and/or auditory "feedback" or reward. This reward stimulus is given when the brain produces desired brainwave changes in amplitude or frequency.     Unlike many books and magazines would have you to believe, this type of protocol is slightly risky, and not just something you download a free neurofeedback app to do. Neurofeedback is a powerful tool and every brain is different, so the single most crucial aspect of neurofeedback training is selecting the proper protocol. Although the QEEG provides crucial information about one person's brain, the training plan itself needs to be adaptive and iterative, based upon how someone responds to the training, which is why it's important to have the entire testing and training process overseen by a neurofeedback practitioner. Heck, when I did my three months of training with the Peak Brain Institute, Dr. Hill and I were text and email buddies nearly every day.     Neurofeedback can produce side...

In the early 90s, Noakes teamed up with Morné du Plessis to drive the founding of the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA). The Institute was built to provide a facility that would primarily fund research in sports performance. The application of this research would provide sports personnel of all disciplines with the means to improve. Noakes and du Plessis also wanted to use it as a platform to build public interest in the country’s top sports people and build state pride. Prof Noakes has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He has been cited more than 19 000 times in scientific literature, has an H-index of 71 and has been rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa for a second 5-year term. He has won numerous awards over the years and made himself available on many editorial boards. He has a passion for running and is still active, running half marathons when he can. He is a devoted husband, father and grandfather and now, in his retirement, is enjoying spending more time with his family.
