Barton Scott | How to replenish electrolytes and minerals on the keto diet KKP: 226
Today, I am blessed to have here with me, Founder of Upgraded Formulas and a Chemical Engineer, Barton Scott. Barton always had sharp cognitive function, but he began to suffer memory loss and mental fatigue. How could this be, at such an early age? To make matters worse, tragedy struck at the same time, when he unfortunately lost his mother. After taking many supplements during this time frame, nothing was working. Faced with adversity and looming health issues, this is when he decided that he must pursue solutions. He grew frustrated with how mineral supplements lacked effectiveness and absorption into the body rendering most products in the market useless. He set out to fix the problem, using his background in Chemical Engineering and experience as a nutritionist, he was able to identify the issues with the current offerings and applied a solution based on sound science. Through research, and many trials and errors, he realized if you could get mineral particles small enough to absorb into our cells, that was going to be the winning formula for effectiveness. That's where he applied nanotechnology to minerals, and developed a solution that makes the minerals we sell today completely bioavailable - the impact of which we can see during our testing protocols. It was then that he set out to create what today is Upgraded Formulas, founded with maximum bioavailability and measurable absorption to ensure you are getting results. In this episode, Barton Scott opens the show explaining the inspiration behind his company, Upgraded Formulas. Unfortunately, typical supplements and our food isn’t enough to get all of our minerals. Barton came up with a better way: highly-effective dietary supplements that are absorbed better by the body than any other products. Plus, Barton created a hair test that is ideal for determining your heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiencies. Tune in as we talk about the importance of testing, which minerals will be helpful with keto, and Barton speaks about his 11-day water fast. Check out his products here: For a discount: (use code: ketokamp) / / E P I S O D E S P ON S O R S PureForm Omega Plant Based Oils (Best Alternative to Fish Oil): Use ben4 for $4.00 off. ☕️ Purity Coffee: http//, use ketokamp at checkout for 10% off [00:25] About Barton Scott * Faced with severe health issues, Barton realized that he needed to develop a solution that makes minerals absorb into the body. * Minerals and heavy metals are a critical thing to focus on to optimize health. * Every day, Barton would take 600 mg of magnesium every day – unfortunately, he just wasn’t absorbing the minerals. * Barton created a new category of supplementation called Nano Minerals to increase healthspan, focus, sleep quality and slow down accelerated aging. * His mission is to support you by creating, highly-effective dietary supplements that are absorbed better by the body than any other products. [10:20] Getting All Of Our Minerals From Food * Unfortunately, our food isn’t enough to get all of our minerals. * We all have some level of gut disfunction. So, we shouldn’t be surprised that our guts are not efficient systems. * The environment is not perfect either in terms of efficiency. * As life goes on, we have less and less nutrition in our food. Topsoil is depleted; therefore, there are fewer nutrients in our foods. [13:10] About Barton’s Hair Testing Kit * Say goodbye to blood draws and urine tests. You don’t need to go to the doctor anymore to take care of your body properly. * They test for key minerals, heavy metals, and understanding your metabolism. * The kit is super easy to use; you collect the hair sample, send it in, then you receive fast test results! * Get the hair test kit: For a discount: (use code: ketokamp) [20:30] Keto, Fasting, And Your Mineral Levels * When people are fasting poorly, their mineral levels are going to be low. * People are trying so hard to be healthy, but they just aren’t seeing results. * The perfect diet and fasting will not get you well; instead, it’s just part of the equation. * When you are eating a high-carb diet, you retain a lot of water weight. On keto, you will release a lot of excess water weight. * If you don’t have a plan in place, you might get brain fog, short-term memory loss, and other issues. [23:30] Test, Don’t Guess * When starting keto, Barton says you should test instead of guessing what you need to do. * People will take one test, then make some changes and not understand why it’s not working. * That’s why it’s essential to have a consultation with an expert. * Another mistake people make is not taking another test after making changes. * You have to know what’s happening in the body before you make effective changes. [28:45] Upgraded Formulas That Will Help On Your Keto Journey * Magnesium and potassium are two supplements that will help on your keto journey. Take magnesium whenever you feel anxious or stressed. Most people will take two capsules before bed. * Upgraded Magnesium: * Upgraded Potassium: * Upgraded Iodine is another supplement that everyone needs. * Upgraded Iodine: * Upgraded Sugar Support will help with those sugar cravings. Barton will take this supplement in his water throughout the day. * Upgraded Sugar Support: * For a discount: (use code: ketokamp) [36:15] About Barton’s 11-Day Water Fast * Barton took his Upgraded Magnesium and Upgraded Potassium during the fast. * He felt amazing and got loads of work done during the fast. * If you do a 7-day fast once a year, it will cut your risk of cancer by ninety-five percent. * During the fast, Barton would sip black coffee as needed but tried not to drink too much. * Anytime we are stressed, we burn through minerals faster; so too much coffee may do harm. * Barton salts water daily for his fast too.

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.

126: Shawn Stevenson - Surprising Factors that Impact Your Metabolism, Health, and Weight
Whether you’re struggling with your health, weight, and metabolism, or you’re simply looking to improve all three, author and long-time podcaster of The Model Health Show, Shawn Stevenson, has some incredible insight to share in this episode. That’s because Shawn dives into factors that most people aren’t addressing and shows why these could be contributing to why you’re not feeling and looking your best. Shawn discusses topics such as hypothalamic inflammation, epicaloric influences, and how calories are digested based on the state of your gut microbiome. You’ll also hear how brain inflammation, calorie counting, and your mindset could be negatively impacting your health and metabolism and what you can do about them. In addition, Shawn also touches on how out-of-whack hormones could be at fault, why the food you eat affects other aspects of health, and what destroys your metabolism. Shawn didn’t start out as the epitome of health. At age 20, he was told that he had the spine of an 80 year old man and he was fitted with a back brace and told to go on bedrest. It was at this point he decided to take his health into his own hands by diving into studies to see what he could uncover and ultimately change. He radically revamped everything he was doing and completely turned around his health. Now he shares his principles in his best-selling books, Sleep Smarter and Eat Smarter, and on his podcast The Model Health Show. You’ll get a glimpse into some of his top health tenets when you tune into this episode with Dr. Anthony Gustin and you’ll learn more about the factors that most people don’t realize have such a huge impact on health, metabolism, and weight.

How to Develop Coping Resilience and Mental Toughness
These days it’s easy to find yourself feeling tense or anxious. If social distancing and the threat of a global pandemic aren’t enough, just add a dose of political mayhem or a strained relationship and you’ve got a recipe for stress. What I’ve learned from performance psychologist Simon Marshall is that your brain and nervous system manage everything about you, including your ability to cope and overcome the difficulties of life. In this podcast, Simon and I are discussing some cutting edge ways to master your nervous system and manage stressful moments. Simon shares some evidence-based techniques that involve breathing, vocalization, and eye movement, to manage stress and help you avoid limbic system overwhelm. And as powerful as these practices are, I know they are just a few of the tools Simon has in his performance coaching arsenal. If you enjoy this podcast, I hope you’ll consider joining us in the upcoming Coping Resilience and Mental Toughness Workshop, with Simon and world champion triathlete Lesley Paterson. The workshop content is approximately five hours of prerecorded video and is largely self-paced, along with four 30-minute live group coaching sessions with Simon and Les to answer questions and help you navigate real-world situations.
