#134 Matthew McConaughey on How To Be More You
Play • 1 hr 37 min

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing.

When I started these podcasts, back in January 2018, my aim was to connect with people who had new and exciting views on how we can feel better and get more out of life. Little did I know that would lead me to today’s episode, where I chat to one of the world’s most famous Hollywood actors.

Matthew McConaughey might not immediately spring to mind as a self-help guru. Yet for his 2014 Oscar acceptance speech he memorably shared some of the tenets by which he lives his life and to which he owes his success. And Matthew now shares his wisdom in his new book, ‘Greenlights: Raucous stories and outlaw wisdom’, which has already become a bestseller all over the globe. Based on the journals he’s kept since he was a teenager, it’s part autobiography, part guide to living – and 100 per cent inspiration.

I was so pleased to learn Matthew wanted to come on the podcast and was prepared to give me 90 minutes of his time, something almost unheard of in stars of his magnitude. But as you’ll hear in this episode, Matthew isn’t your typical movie star.

Authenticity is very important to Matthew, as is his quest to, in his words, “Be more me.” And that starts with eliminating what is not you. In Matthew’s own life, key examples include his decision to leave law school and become an actor, and later to turn down vast sums of money to leave the rom-com genre behind. Whilst he acknowledges the financial privilege that allowed him to take these risks, his lesson is about being true to yourself and your values, which is relevant for all of us. He says we should make sure we are feeding our soul account as well as our bank account, investing spiritually as well as financially.

We cover so many topics during this entertaining chat, from our favourite U2 album to the current state of society as well as the incredible value of journaling. Whilst Matthew’s approach isn’t to give advice, there’s plenty of wisdom in the colourful stories and examples from his life that he shares. The beautiful thing about living, he says, is that you’re the author of your life’s story. So be cool to your future self. That’s some pretty awesome A-list advice I think we can all benefit from.

#86 Nutrition Science Series (Part 1 of 3) Why Everything About Nutrition Could Be Wrong with Professor Tim Spector
Is everything we have been told about nutrition wrong? And have we questioned prevailing dietary dogma enough? Are we asking the right questions in nutrition science and if not, how do we rectify it? Professor Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at Kings College London and honorary consultant Physician at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals is my guest this week and we dive into these questions and more. He is the lead researcher behind the world’s biggest citizen science health project – the Covid Symptom study app. This free tool has been used by more than 4 million people in the UK, US, and Sweden. The app identified new symptoms of the disease and risk factors as well as monitoring its progress to warn health authorities.  He has published four popular books- including the best-selling Diet Myth and more recently, Spoon-Fed, a Sunday Times bestseller that I think is absolutely fantastic. On the show today we talk about: * Why the calorie in calorie out dogma is entirely flawed * Why salt may not be the prime suspect * The approach to pesticides we should take * Artificially sweetened beverages * Practical suggestions for how to live healthier * What the future of personalised nutrition could hold Check out The Doctor's Kitchen website for full show notes and social media links for this episode   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Is grass-fed beef good for our planet?
In* Episode 116* I sit down with *Environmental Researcher Nicholas Carter* to talk further about grass-fed beef and planetary health. *Specifically we cover:* 1 - Results from a new peer-reviewed study on White Oaks Pasture, a farm that for years has claimed their beef is carbon negative. 2 - The importance of rewilding for cooling our planet 3 - How changing the foods we eat can help free up land to be rewilded and protect existing forests 4 - The GHG footprint of our food - how important is transport in this conversation? Beef versus Avocado as an example. 5 - The UK's Regenuary movement and some of their claims 6 - and much more *Resources:* * John Hokpkins University study published in 2020 which combined data from 140 countries and identified the single greatest way for someone to lower the GHG footprint of their diet was by adopting a vegan diet. Next best was a vegan diet with insects and molluscs and then a two-thirds vegan diet (2 vegan meals and snacks a day with one meal containing animal products). * You want to reduce the carbon footprint of your food? Focus on what you eat, not whether your food is local. Article by Hannah Ritchie * Author of White Oaks Pastures study acknowledging that their beef is NOT carbon negative and such claims are false. *My Book:* My book is coming out early 2021 published with Penguin - I cannot wait to share with you.

Ep. 5: Doug Evans - The Sprout Wizard
Doug Evans is the Sprout Wizard. After decades of living, eating, and working to excess and burn-out, Doug Evans had his "come to plants" moment. In 1999, he literally went from eating a greasy, fatty duck in New York's Chinatown, to eating a raw vegan diet overnight. This personal galileo moment came as he considered his devastating family history of western disease that included heart attacks, stroke, and diabetes. Was he destined to this same fate, or could he break the cycle? He chose to break the cycle "cold cucumber," and has since set his sights on exploring and sharing the world's most nutritious superfoods. In April 2020, Doug Evans released The Sprout Book: Tap into the Power of the World's Most Nutritious Food. Almost instantly, everyone started talking about the simplicity and fun of sprouting your own foods. I’m sure many of you had the same questions I had. Aren't sprouts the hippy-dippy garnish you throw on a salad or in a wrap? Is it complicated, time-consuming, and expensive? And, really, how nutritious can sprouts be? Well, as you’ll hear today, this conversation opened my eyes to the possibilities of sprouts. They aren’t just an afterthought to add flavor or crunch. They are powerhouses of nutrition and the best part is that you can begin sprouting right away on your kitchen countertop with just a few seeds, water, and a mason jar. Get the whole family involved in this beautiful nature experiment and learn how to sprout a new hobby with life-long benefits for everyone Episode and PLANTSTRONG Resources: * The Sprout Book: Tap into the Power of the Planet's Most Nutritious Food * Join our Mystery Valentines Day Dinner with Chef's Garden - All the Ingredients Delivered Directly to Your Door. * PLANTSTRONG Foods - Pizza Crust is Back in Stock * PLANTSTRONG Meal Planner - Discover the easy way to eat PLANTSTRONG * Theme Music for Episode Sprouting Companies Mentioned By Doug: Sproutman True Leaf Market

Feels Good Man! Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini On The Controversial Meme That Changed The World
In a spark of creativity, cartoonist Matt Furie created an innocent, loving frog he named Pepe. What came next is so insane, it literally bent reality. Filmmakers Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini wanted to understand how this sweet and relatively obscure indie comic book character morphed into an infamous symbol of hate—and a meme that changed the world. The result is Feels Good Man—a filmmaking triumph and one of the best documentaries I’ve seen in years. Premiering at last year’s Sundance, where it picked up the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Emerging Filmmaker, it’s the surreal story of Pepe The Frog. How it migrated across the internet, evolving into an unwitting avatar of chaos and a lever for radicalization. It’s about its creator Matt Furie’s efforts to reclaim his creation. And Pepe’s slow transmogrification back into a hieroglyph of positivity. But beneath the surface, Feels Good Man is about artistic agency. It’s about the journey from passivity to participation. A sociological excavation of how culture spreads from mind to mind, it’s also an archeological dig into the indelible power of an idea. How a meme adopted by a regressive internet subculture spilled into the real world, shifted the political landscape, and ultimately tipped a presidential election. The film is an absolute must-see. I wanted to know more. So today Arthur and Giorgio take us behind the looking glass on Pepe’s Frankenstein-meets-Alice-In-Wonderland journey. This is a conversation about the complicated relationship between internet culture and the real world. It’s about the strange relationship between comic book artists, arch druids, data scientists, intellectual property lawyers, and alt-right mouthpieces. It’s about memetics—how memes drive cultural evolution in parallel with how genes influence human evolution. And, in this case, how one meme was perniciously coopted to democratize electoral engagement, enervating passive supporters into active participants. But more than anything, this is about the war between cynicism and hope. And why, to coin Matt Furie, you gotta go hardcore happy. The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. I don’t understand why everyone isn’t talking about this movie and the ideas it presents. This conversation is my attempt to change that.

#190: The Goddess’ Guide to Hormonal Health with Dr. Stephanie Estima
A woman’s hormonal landscape changes dramatically throughout her life. Because of this unique biology, understanding her menstrual cycle and its rhythm can be incredibly useful for optimizing productivity, weight, sex drive, energy, and mood.  On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Dr. Stephanie Estima, an expert in female metabolism and body composition. She is a doctor of chiropractic with a special interest in functional neurology, brain metabolism, and the specific application of the ketogenic diet and fasting to female physiology. She is particularly focused on distilling strategies in nutritional proxies, movement, posture, and mindset to actualize human potential, healthspan, longevity, and achievement.   In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Estima talk about how women are often divorced from their body, frustrated, and come to the conclusion that their health efforts are not being realized because there is something "wrong with them.” They discuss how to eat and work out in a way that honors a woman’s natural cycle in her reproductive years. They also talk about how chronic stress affects women differently than men, the importance of listening to your body, and why loving yourself is one of the most radical things you can do. In this episode, we dive into:   -The pandemic and chronic stress (1:34)  -Dr. Estima’s health journey (5:33)  -What is a “Betty” and where the term came from (14:05)  -The big mistake women make when it comes to their hormonal health (21:46)  -How the accumulation of low-grade stress impacts metabolic health (25:23)   -How training and competing in a figure competition impacted Dr. Estima’s health (29:36)  -Self-esteem and reclaiming your power (39:00)  -The importance of listening to your body and attuning to your symptoms (47:01)  -The Estima Method (49:30) -A case study from Dr. Estima’s private practice (1:02:32)  -Where to learn more about Dr. Estima (1:12:05) For more on Dr. Stephanie Estima you can follow her on Instagram @Dr.Stephanie.Estima, on Facebook @BetterWithDrStephanie, on YouTube @DrStephanieEstima, and through her website https://hellobetty.club/.

Body Image, Self-Love and Disordered Eating with Women’s Psychologist, Dr Libby Quinn
This week, I welcome back women’s health expert, Dr Libby Quinn, who is making her 2nd appearance on the Leanne Ward Nutrition Podcast. Dr Libby is a clinical psychologist and founder of The Women’s Psychology Clinic, a boutique therapy space for women in northern NSW. Dr Libby draws on her 8 years of university training that includes a bachelor of psychological science (with honours) and a doctorate in clinical psychology. Dr Libby has, for 10 years, worked solely in private practice to assist women of all ages to live a more vibrant life. If you haven’t heard the original episode Dr Libby and I did together (season 1, episode 24), please go back and listen to that first. That episode was all about mastering your inner mean girl and is a great foundation to build from. You’ll be able to find it by scrolling back through my podcast episodes. On this week’s episode, we start by tackling the beast that is body image. In this age of social media where we see “perfect” bodies everywhere, how do we learn to stop comparing ourselves and love the skin were in? We then discuss ‘body love’ & ‘body acceptance’ and how to deal with our ever changing bodies as we age, have children or manage chronic health diseases. I get Dr Libby to weigh in on health extremes, e.g. what happens when the obsession with body image goes too far, how we know when we need to seek professional help and how to conquer the “I’m not good enough story” we tell ourselves. Please follow Dr Libby on her Instagram, the @thewomenspsychologist and you can touch base with her on her website.

#59 Fatal Conveniences™: Lip Balm & Chapsticks: A Vicious Cycle of Dry Lips
Are you among the nearly 66% of the population that uses lip balm or chapstick every day? If you are, you may actually be drying your lips out more instead of moisturizing them. Although you think you’re doing something good for your skin, you’re contributing to a vicious cycle of dry lips. Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health, and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Americans spend $200 Million on Lip Balm and Chapstick every year. You probably have some lip balm within arm’s reach right now. You can find tubes of lip balm in every bathroom, nightstand, kitchen junk drawer, purse and jacket pocket of pretty much every American household. We’ve been obsessively buying this stuff for almost a century. We think it helps moisturize the sensitive skin on and around our lips, but does it? The truth is, layering waxy substances on your lips creates a moisture barrier. So although they may feel soft and moisturized, you’re preventing your body’s natural process of shedding dead skin and creating new, healthy cells. Then when your lip balm or chapstick wears off, your lips feel dry, and you apply more. This essentially stops your lips from regenerating new skin. You need to let those lips breathe! But hey, I know certain conditions call for some sort of protection or healing for your lips. But you need to be aware of which ingredients are going to do more damage than good. I’ll give you some healthy, safe alternatives, as well as tips for things you can do to keep your lips moisturized naturally. So, ditch that Cherry ChapStick, guys, and listen up. Other info in this episode: * The history of lip balm * The history of ChapStick * The Lipsmackers campaign to invade pre-teen purses * Lazy Lips * The dangers of menthols and cooling agents on your lips * The danger of parabens * What to use on your lips instead * How to avoid dry lips in the first place Links & Resources: Axiology Blog: What’s in a Color?

Raised by Rhythm | Ellen Harper
Ellen Harper has been around the folk music scene her whole life. Her mother, Dorothy Chase performed and taught banjo and guitar at Hecht House in the 1950s in Boston with Bess Lomax Hawes and her dad, Charles Chase repaired any and all instruments that came his way. Ellen learned to play, perform and teach guitar and other folk instruments at her mother’s knee and eventually, the family moved west to Claremont, California where they create the iconic Folk Music Center that became a hub for all the biggest names in folk, from Dylan to Joan Baez, Pete Seeger and so many other lesser-known, yet equally important players.  Ellen’s kids grew up in that same place, surrounded by those same people and, in fact, one son Ben Harper, caught the music bug and has since become an acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in his own right. In 2000 Ellen participated in Ben’s documentary Pleasure and Pain filmed by iconic rock photographer, Danny Clinch, whose also been a guest on the podcast. That led to them to collaborate on an album. Childhood Home.

Get Fit, Don’t Quit: Kelsey Wells’ No Fail Formula for Mind-Body Strength
If you’re a little slow off the mark - or not as fired up as usual about your workouts this year - well, that’s not exactly surprising, all things considered. But you don’t need us to tell you that regular exercise - what with all it’s mood-elevating, energy-stabilising powers is one thing that will help get you through this turbo bleak midwinter, like little else. So, how do you jumpstart a fitness regimen that’s going to support you - in mind and body - through this wild time and beyond? In today’s episode we’ve got one of the world’s most loved, lauded and refreshingly real trainers answering this question. Kelsey Wells rose to prominence in fitness circles as a power trainer on the Kayla Itsines-founded SWEAT app, and continues to share her practical yet compassionate approach to strength-based training with her near three million-strong community of followers. However, she’s been on a real journey where exercise is concerned - growing up, she never saw herself falling for workouts, and it was only after a spell of poor mental health drove her to begin taking care of her body that she truly fell in love with fitness. In today’s episode, Kelsey discusses her journey from exercise refusenik to global fitness star, as well as sharing the fitness and mindset fundamentals you need to start - or reinvigorate - a fitness journey. She answers: how do you get started; when should you train; for how long?; what mix of workouts will get you strong without adding too much bulk; what gym equipment is actually worth it - and, above all, how do you keep going? Join Kelsey on Instagram: @kelseywells Join Morgan on Instagram: @morganfargo Join Women’s Health UK on Instagram: @womenshealthuk Topics  - How Kelsey Wells fell in love with fitness - Why exercise can help boost mental health - Kelsey's mind-body strength philosophy - How to begin or reinvigorate a fitness journey, and stay motivated!
