Anger Is a Kind of Madness
Play • 3 min

"They didn’t have the studies to back it up, but they knew.

Anger makes you dumber. It makes you a worse leader, a worse decision-maker."

Ryan tells us precisely why anger is so irrational on today's Daily Stoic Podcast.

BJ Fogg | Biggest Myth About Habits & 2 Strategies to Decreasing Screentime
In today’s episode, we cover the breaking and creation of habits with BJ Fogg. BJ founded the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University and teaches industry innovators how human behavior works.   There are plenty of misconceptions floating around the internet surrounding making and breaking habits, so what is the biggest one, what does the science actually say about habit formation, and what can you start doing today to break those bad habits you’re feeling stuck with?   What to Listen For What is Behavior Design and how can you use it to become the best version of yourself? What is the Tiny Habits method and how can we implement it now to start creating long lasting habits? Why is it important to start implementing a new habit by making it as easy as possible? What is the biggest myth about habit formation? Why can habit trackers be detrimental to healthy habit development? What is the secret to promoting positive behavioral changes in your kids? What is the difference between habit and compliance and why is one detrimental in the long run? Why are positive emotions so significant in the creation of new habits and how can we use that knowledge to build better habits faster? What are the 3 phases to getting rid of unwanted habits? What 2 strategies can you use to reduce your weekly screentime and be more present in social situations?   Habit formation is not as simple as just doing something for a specific number of days. Many of us know there are things we only had to try once or twice before we started doing them everyday because it only took one or two times to recognize how good doing those things made us feel. Because we as humans don’t fully incorporate behavioral changes unless we want to, we must recognize and feel the positive impacts a new behavioral change will have in order to solidify it.    A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.

New Research Says Fasting Beats Cutting Calories – Leonie Heilbronn, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 781
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m joined by Australian researcher Leonie Heilbronn, Ph.D.. Her fasting research looks at the biological pathways that support reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Leonie leads the Obesity and Metabolism group based within the Lifelong Health Theme at South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute at Adelaide University in Adelaide, Australia. Today, I have her on to talk about her studies on fasting, many of which show more specific results than what we’ve seen in this field before. She looks at intermittent fasting, time restricted eating, calorie restriction and more.  In a particular study on women, Leoni says, “We did see that the intermittent fasting group lost a little bit more weight than the caloric restriction group, and they had better improvements in their health.” There were other positive results like reductions in diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers.  Fasting isn’t one-size-fits-all, so I asked Leonie a lot of questions about her research, such as: * How does the food you eat during intermittent fasting affect the fast itself?  * What food works for some people and not others and how does that influence the effectiveness of your fast?  * How do intermittent fasting and caloric restriction compare?  * When should you eat your daily protein and carbs?  * Should you consume black coffee during your fast?  * How does time-restrictive eating affect your lifespan? How do people respond in fasting studies? “For some people, it takes them a little while to get used to fasting and then some people just maybe never get used to it,” she says.  How do people respond in time restrictive eating studies? “I think time restrictive eating is great because you don’t really have to change everything that you’re eating and you’re still going to have some really good effects,” she says. “But I think if you started to have bad behaviors because of time pressure, then you’re not going to see the improvement that we’d hope to see.” Leonie breaks down her research in in simple terms, so no matter what your familiarity with fasting might be, you’ll find a fascinating entry point.  Enjoy!

#144 - Phil Maffetone: Optimizing health and performance through maximal aerobic function
Phil Maffetone is an author, health practitioner, and coach with decades of experience helping everyone from amateurs to world-class athletes optimize their health and performance. In this episode, Phil explains the importance of developing the aerobic system, defines maximum aerobic function (MAF), and explains how to determine your MAF heart rate. He then demonstrates how to integrate that into a training protocol which is designed to help people move faster at a sub maximum heart rate and increase fat utilization as the primary source of fuel—emphasizing the importance of nutrition on one's capacity to oxidize fat. Phil also extracts training insights from the amazing feats of world-class marathoners, explores the impact of a low-carb diet on one’s capacity for high intensity exercise and anaerobic performance, and explains the downstream effects of being “overfat.” We discuss: * Phil’s background in running, and training insights from a six-day race (2:30); * The difference between being “fit” and being “healthy” (11:00); * Defining the aerobic and anaerobic systems, and why VO2 max doesn’t predict performance (18:15); * Defining maximum aerobic function (MAF), determining your MAF heart rate with Phil’s 180 Formula, and why a strong aerobic system is crucial to health and performance (24:00); * Using the MAF test to track and improve your aerobic fitness (37:30); * How increasing your sub-max pace at a given heart rate can increase your maximum pace (40:00); * The impact of nutrition on one’s ability to use fat as fuel while exercising (43:00); * Phil’s nutritional approach with patients, the concept of “carbohydrate intolerance” (51:45); * Assessing the impact of a low-carb diet on high intensity exercise and anaerobic performance (58:00); * Extracting insights from world-class marathoners (1:04:45); * How being “overfat” affects health and performance, and ways to decrease excess body fat (1:13:30); and * More.

Tom Bilyeu: Passion is for Wimps!
On this episode we take a hard look at why “follow your passion” might be terrible advise, and we’ll discover what will make you more powerful and impactful than simply following your passion. We all know that Entrepreneurs are the new rock stars of the Millennial generation. But you’ve heard me say many times that I believe that entrepreneurship, business and leadership are about something far greater than money, or even being the next entrepreneurial unicorn. It’s about purpose. A successful business can, if you are in touch with your purpose, become a way for you to positively impact the world. Our guest today Tom Bilyeu is the co-founder of 2014 Inc 500 company Quest Nutrition — a unicorn startup valued at over $1 billion — and he’s the co-founder and host of “Impact Theory”. Tom’s mission is the creation of empowering media-based IP and the acceleration of mission-based businesses. Tom is Driven to help people develop the skills they need to improve themselves and the world, Tom is intent on using commerce to address the dual pandemics of physical and mental mal-nourishment. Tom regularly inspires audiences of entrepreneurs, change makers, and thought leaders at some of the most prestigious conferences and seminars around the world, including Abundance 360, A-fest, and Freedom Fast Lane.
