This podcast topic is a big interest for me personally as I’ve been looking into the research on intermittent fasting (and caloric restriction in general) for longevity and health; but we also talk alot about body composition and fat loss here too, so if intermittent or fasting in general is of interest to you, you’ll really enjoy this episode.

 

Here are some of the things we talked about: 

·      How fasting is a ‘good’ stressor that helps the cells in our body

·      The difference between fasting and starvation 

·      Fat loss and fasting – metabolic and hormonal benefits 

·      If coffee or supplements okay to have during a fasting period

·      How to make yourself a fat burning machine

·      Autophagy for health span

Michael Anthony (Unbroken) is a best-selling author, speaker and coach who helps trauma survivors get out of the vortex to become the hero of their own story. 

 

Michael is an advocate for adult survivors of child abuse and has been called the “Tony Robbins of Trauma” and spends his time helping other survivors get out of The Vortex to become the hero of their own story and take their live back.

 

Michael hosts both The Michael Unbroken and Think Unbroken Podcasts and blogs weekly at www.ThinkUnbroken.com

 

This podcast needs to come with a warning. 

 

Michael had a horrific childhood and there will be content in here that is difficult to listen to. I also share some of my darker life moments in this episode (things I’ve never previously discussed online) so this was a difficult episode to press publish on personally. However, these podcasts tend to be the ones that have life changing impact for those that need it, so I’ve felt the fear and pressed publish anyways (raw and unedited). 

 

I hope it helps those who need it most. 

 

Here are some of the things we talked about: 

 

·     Michael’s horrific childhood and how to heal yourself from trauma 

·      Removing your need for external validation. 

·      What to do if you have toxic parents (or loved ones)

·      How to release trauma from your body 

·      How trauma is stored in the body 

·      Understanding the nervous system response after trauma

·      And much more

On top of saying a big thank you to this months podcast sponsor LetsGetChecked - I've also linked a 30% OFF all orders code at the bottom of the email. 

LetsGetChecked have been doing my blood work for years and I highly recommend them if you are looking for a discreet way to check your bloods and/or want to track the data (if you geek out on stuff like that like I do)

Here are some of the things you can privately check with their home testing:

  • Testosterone or estrogen levels (to make sure sex drive is healthy and firing as it should be)
  • Thyroid function (to identify the presence of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism)
  • Cortisol (to check if stress is chronically elevated- something that holds a lot of people back on their weight loss goals in particular)
  • Vitamin D (I check this religiously every winter and supplement back the difference)
  • B12 Ievels (especially important if following a plant based or vegan diet) 
  • Sexual health (thankfully, not my area any more.. but where was this discreet service when I was in college? lol)
  • And much more. 

Links for each of the above are here:
Testosterone - http://trylgc.com/briankeane
Thyroid - https://trylgc.com/briankeanethyroid
Cortisol - https://trylgc.com/BrianKeanCortisol
Vitamin - https://trylgc.com/briankeanevitamin
STD testing -  http://trylgc.com/BrianKeaneSTD

If you’re looking for discreet home testing that tracks your results and something a little bit more cost effective than going to your GP for blood work (which I also recommend doing at least once a year if you decideLetsGetChecked isn’t for you) - then head over the website and enter code KEANE30 for 30% off all orders. 

Although getting your blood work is such an incredible tool and I couldn’t recommend it more to understand what’s going on with your body, it can be costly, so hopefully the code helps.

Dean is an Athlete and a legend in the sport of ultrarunning.

 

He is also a two-time New York Times bestselling author and the author or the great new book A Runner’s High.

 

Dean was named by TIME magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world for pushing his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Among his many accomplishments, he has run 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days. He’s run across Death Valley in the middle of summer, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole.

 

His list of competitive achievements includes winning the World’s Toughest Footrace, the Badwater Ultramarathon, and winning the 4 Deserts Challenge, racing in the hottest, driest, windiest and coldest places on earth.

 

This is our round 2 of the podcast, Dean also appeared on episode 182: Getting Comfortable Being Unconformable in 2018. In today’s show we talk all things ultra-running and mindset for this long overdue episode. 

 

Here are some of the things we talked about: 

 

  •     Developing the mindset of embracing the suck and silencing the voice that tells you to quit
  •     Why you are the sum totals of all your habits and how to create new ones
  •     Why endurance never sleeps and running an ultra is simple, all you have to do is not stop 

The importance of mindset growing pains – until you go over the edge, you don’t know how far the edge is  

  •     Why the struggle aftermath is important– “that is is most difficult to endure is the most satisfying to reminisce”
  •     Using forward projection to avoid quitting when things get really hard
  •     The game changing advice Dean offered me when I first got into ultra-running 
  •     And much more

Dr. Kozlowski is an entrepreneurial Functional Medicine doctor who trained at the centers of Drs. Mark Hyman, Deepak Chopra, and Susan Blum.

 

He began applying Functional Medicine principles while working with under-served populations in Chicago during his family medicine residency. 

 

Dr. Kozlowski uses a broad array of tools to find the source of the body's dysfunction. He takes the time to listen to his patients and plots their history on a timeline, considering what makes them unique and co-creating with them an individualized care plan. 

His recently published book Unfunc Your Gut encapsulates his collaborative, patient-first healthcare approach—in true research-based, conversational style, it offers a blend of medical insight and the experiential wisdom of his own healing journey through addiction recovery.

Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s podcast: 

 

  • What exactly is ‘functional medicine’
  • The most important lifestyle and diet changes you can make to heal your gut once and for all
  • How to do an food elimination diet correctly – the 21 day protocols and tracking journal
  • Food sensitives and why they are so common 
  • Leaky gut causes and how to fix it
  • How a mental, emotional, and spiritual connection to the food you eat influences your health
  • And much more

Luke is a British Olympic gold medalist, commonwealth champion and former professional boxer. 

 

As an amateur, he won gold at the 2008 European Championships, silver at the 2011 World Championships, and gold at the 2012 Olympic games in London, all in the bantamweight division.

 

He also challenged twice for lightweight world titles. In July of this year, he retired from professional boxing — nine years after winning Olympic gold at the London Games. 

 

Today’s podcast is a fascinating deep dive into what it takes to develop that champion mindset. Luke is so incredibly down to earth and humble and there is so much to be taken from this podcast even if you’re not fan of boxing or sport in general. 

 

Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s podcast: 

 

  •     Finding your passion in life (whatever that is) 
  •     Advice to his younger self and what you need to do to stay on the right path
  •     What he would have done if he hadn’t been a professional boxer 
  •     Winning the Olympic gold medal at London 2012
  •     The mindset shift from amateur to pro 
  •     His relationships with social media as a professional boxer 
  •     The power of enjoying the moment 
  •     His toughest fight (physically, mentally and emotionally) 
  •     The importance of your inner circle and surrounding yourself with the right people.

Amanda is PN1 certified nutrition coach, weight loss specialist and award-winning radio personality and podcaster.

 

In January 2012, she made a New Year’s resolution to stop dieting and to start making the best decision in every moment. She resolved to just do the best she could, to stop forcing herself to eat vegetables she hated, and to stop paying for gym memberships she’d never use. Slow steps, small goals, and a lot of determination helped her to lose over 100 pounds and keep it off.

 

She is living proof that dedication, passion, and strength can be ignited in anyone. Her positive messages of health and wellness are regularly promoted on the radio, on her podcast, and throughout social media, where audiences are always eager to hear more about her weekly meal prep process, daily fitness workouts, and her fun-loving outlook on life. 

 

Amanda is not only lively and personable, she shows others how it is possible to change their lives, break old habits, and even have fun while doing it. 

 

I was on Amanda’s show a few weeks ago and absolutely loved her energy (and story) so I’m delighted she could join me for this podcast.

 

This is a must listen for anyone on a weight loss journey or for those who feel too confused and/or overwhelmed by the amount of conflicting weight loss advice out there. 

 

Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s episode. 

 

  •     How she lost 100lbs by walking more and just making a few dietary changes
  •     How that transitioned from walking to finding a new love for strength training and running
  •     How to beat the feeling of overwhelm when you have so much weight to lose
  •     How she used to binge eat to the point of pain and how she overcame it
  •     The sad reality of losing friendships a weight loss journey 
  •     And much more.
