Ben Greenfield Fitness: Diet, Fat Loss and Performance

A Food Industry Expert Reveals The Shocking Truth About "Healthy" Energy Bars, Protein Bars & Paleo Bars (& How To Choose The Right Bar).

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/bar As I described just a few days ago in this comprehensive article "Dirty Little Secrets Of The "Healthy" Energy Bar Industry (& The Shocking Truth About Protein Bars, Paleo Bars & Beyond).", I used to be an energy and "health" bar addict. I'd easily consume 2-3 energy bars an hour on a long bike ride, always have some kind of satiating healthy "Paleo-ish" bar tucked away somewhere during a run or a long road trip or airplane ride, and would typically be munching on some kind of massive, forearm-sized protein bar while wandering out of the gym after weightlifting. No wonder I struggled for years with chronically elevated blood sugar, gut rot, excess protein intake, energy level roller coaster rides and toxins in my blood tests. And no wonder so many other folks who depend on health bars as a staple wind up constantly fighting an uphill battle against weight gain, poor energy levels (ironic, right?), bloating, gas, constipation and more. Why this seeming paradox? Unfortunately, most energy bars are chock full of sugar and starch, which can cause dangerous blood sugar surges and fat formation. And if the sugar gets removed from a bar, it's often replaced with nasty artificial sweeteners that can kill gut bacteria and cause neurotoxicity. Or the bar is packed with so much excess protein that you get ammonia build-up, acidity, insulin spiking and gut issues like bloating, gas and constipation. Finally, from peanuts to soy to whey and beyond, the ingredients of many bars can cause food intolerance reactions, resulting in weight gain, skin, gut and immune system problems and a host of other health issues. Finally, if a bar actually is healthy, it either tastes like cardboard, falls apart in the heat, or is like biting into tree bark in the cold, and simply hasn't been tested "in-the-trenches" by people living hard-charging lives or athletes competing under real conditions that exist outside of some whitewashed food laboratory. And I've only scratched the surface of the issues and the shocking truth about so-called "healthy" energy bars, protein bars, Paleo bars and beyond. In this interview with David Urman, food industry expert, we pull back the curtain on the healthy food industry, and you'll discover the disturbing truth about everything from "natural flavors" to IMO's to processing, preservatives and beyond. So who is David? David graduated UC Berkeley School of Law and practiced law for 10 years, then jumped into the health and nutrition industry, working initially in medical device management and the production of a cutting-edge breath ketone monitor (which I've discussed on previous shows) and eventually the production of ketogenic friendly foods. So he has a unique background in business, food development and nutrition. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How you can measure oxidative stress via a breath test...[13:12] -How David created a research device that can also measure your level of ketosis via your breath...[12:30 & 15:25] -The shocking ingredients of one of the top health bars that remains a favorite of the health-conscious...[20:00] -A notorious, hidden ingredient called "IMO" that is in most bars, and that spikes blood sugar through the roof...[24:50] -The surprising additives in a bar that are allowed to be called "natural flavors"...[29:10] -How you can make a bar shelf stable but with minimal preservatives, and not need to be refrigerated or frozen...[38:20] -How a bar can provide adequate amino acids for recovery without spiking insulin and glucose, or creating mTor, accelerated aging and longevity issues from excess protein...[43:45] -Quinoa's little known cousin "kaniwa", and the surprising list of nutrients, minerals and antioxidants in kaniwa...[48:07] -Why the fats combination of white chia seeds, chocolate liquor, cacao nibs, cocoa butter, cocoa solids, coconut flakes and almonds gives a perfect hedonistic combination of fat and taste...[52:40 & 55:00] -Why organic honey, as a rich source of antioxidants and minerals, offers a slow time-release carbohydrate-based fuel source that actually lowers appetite and increases satiety...[54:07] -How Spanish almonds, cacao nibs and the chia seeds can provide fiber without the addition of IMO's or synthetic starches...[57:38 & 59:30] -How much damage the modern pasteurization and long high-heat cooking process used on bars can destroy the nutrient content of the "superfoods" in the bar...[64:40] -The high-antioxidant capacity of organic honey, almonds, cocoa nibs, kaniwa, chia seeds and chocolate liquor, and how these combined components have very high free radical scavenging capabilities...[68:30] -Why the NatureBite bar that David and Ben developed took over two years to create and test...[71:30] -And much more!

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/daphne Ever since a high school biology teacher informed Daphne Miller that clover produces a hormone similar to human estrogen, she has been fascinated by how our external ecosystem is linked to our internal one. Miller is a practicing family physician, author and Associate Clinical Professor at the University of California San Francisco. For the past fifteen years, her leadership, advocacy, research and writing have focused on the connections between food production, ecology and health. Her writings and profiles can be found in many publications including the Washington Post, the New York Times, Vogue, Orion Magazine, Yes! Magazine, Food and Wine, The Guardian UK and Harvard Medical Magazine and JAMA. She is author of The Jungle Effect: The Healthiest Diets from Around the World, Why They Work and How to Make Them Work for You (HarperCollins 2008) and Farmacology: Total Health from the Ground Up (HarperCollins 2013). Farmacology appears in four languages and was the basis for the award-winning documentary In Search of Balance. Miller is an internationally recognized speaker in the emerging field of planetary health and a leader in the Healthy Parks, Healthy People initiative, an effort spearheaded by the National Parks Service to build linkages between our medical system and our park system. Her 2009 Washington Post article "Take a Hike and Call Me in the Morning" is widely credited with introducing "park prescriptions," a concept that is rapidly gaining traction across the United States. In 2000, Miller founded WholefamilyMD, the first integrative primary care practice in San Francisco. She is a graduate of Brown University where she majored in medical anthropology. She received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and completed a residency and NIH-funded research fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco. She was a Senior Fellow at the Berkeley Food Institute and a Bravewell Fellow at the University of Arizona Program in Integrative Medicine. She serves as an advisor and/or board member to a number of non-profits, including the Institute of the Golden Gate, Education Outside, Mandela Marketplace and the Edible Schoolyard Foundation and Prevention Institute.

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/lullaby Composer Michael Tyrrell first appeared on my website in the podcast episode "Unleashing The Phenomenon Of Using Sound & Music For Performance, Recovery, Healing & More." In that episode, I describe how, at a health summit, someone handed me a book called "The Sound Of Healing", written by Michael - along with a handful of CD's that Michael had recorded. These CD's, called "Wholetones" were described on the cover as music that "heals, repairs, and protects against disease." So, skeptical but curious, I sat down and read the entire Sound Of Healing book, and I began occasionally listening to the CD's while driving, while getting a massage, while sitting in my sauna, etc. Every time I finished a CD, I had such a unique feeling of elation and satisfaction after listening, I downloaded a digital tuning app and retuned my guitar and my ukelele to the "frequencies" Michael described in the book. This may all seem a bit "woo-woo", but it made a huge difference in the ability of a song to make me feel uplifted and full of positive energy as I played it. During that episode with Michael, we discussed why the music and sound you listen to every day is not tuned the right way and can actually be destroying organ function, how sound frequencies affect the human body, water, plants and more, how to "re-tune" music and sound to heal organs and provide therapy to the body, how to combine light and sound to de-stress your body, why digital sound from CD's and mp3's are not as good as analog sound from things like vinyl albums (and what you can do about it if you don't want to buy a vinyl record turntable), the best way to use the sound to heal your body and to target specific organ systems, what Michael thinks about the use of tuning forks as vibrational sound therapy, and how a musician can "re-tune" their instrument to the correct frequency. So who is this guy? Michael is the founder and president of Wholetones, Inc., a healing frequency music project that helps aid health, creativity, productivity and wellbeing. After recording seven songs at different frequency levels, Michael released his album, Wholetones, accompanied by his book titled "Wholetones: The Sound of Healing" in 2014. Passionate about musical healing, Michael travels nationally and internationally as a key-note and motivational speaker on the power of musical therapy. Always connected to music, Michael bought his first guitar at the age of 10, which later lead him to study classical guitar with Joseph Lazarro, a protegee of the "grandfather of the classical guitar,"Andre Segovia. In recent years, Michael has traveled and ministered withChristian singer-songwriter, Jason Upton, and toured and recorded with Rick Pino and Fire Rain ministries. In 1987, Michael worked with Gospel Hall of Famer, Mylon Lefevre, and his band Mylon and Broken Heart, earning him a GMA Dove Award as well as a Grammy award. Michael has been in full time ministry for the last 26 years and has toured and played with many well-known Christian and secular bands. His experience as a youth pastor, worship leader, accomplished musician, producer and itinerant speaker has allowed his personal music frequency project to transcend international borders. Michael currently resides with his wife, Lillian, in Margate, Florida. He just released a brand new set of Wholetones music called "Life, Love & Lullabies". Life, Love & Lullabies is comprised of six beautiful songs, each approximately 30 minutes in length designed to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. I've been playing it for my kids and also for relaxing evenings in my infrared sauna. During today's discussion with Michael, you'll discover: -My sound healing session with a guy named Porungai in Sedona, who had a vibrating sound table and played didgeridoo, gongs, crystal bowls, etc. combined with bodywork...[11:10] -How sound effects the human body and human cells, and what kind of science or research is out there on the effect of sound frequencies on the human body...[18:00] -Why Michael tunes his instruments to the frequency that he does, and why some music is actually damaging to the human body...[24:45] -Why Michael almost fell asleep in the studio while recording "Life, Love & Lullabies", and how it is supposed to affect sleep...[42:20] -The details behind the six pieces in Life, Love & Lullabies, and how each is different...[50:55] -The best way to listen to Michael's tracks (bedside speakers vs. headphones vs. CD player, etc.)...[55:25] -Why Michael designed a specific sound frequency for pets...[61:28] -And much more...

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/biohackingsecrets My guest on today's podcast, Anthony DiClementi, is a bearded, bad-ass, beast of a man who also happens to be one of the deepest wells of biohacking knowledge who I've ever met. He is the founder of BiohackingSecrets.com, a health and wellness company that reaches millions of people each month through their newsletter, videos, books, consulting, and podcast (The Biohacking Secrets Show). He's become famous for both reversing "incurable" diseases (Cancer, MS, neurodegenerative disease) and helping world class athletes achieve new levels of peak performance. After his own two year battle with Lyme Disease in 2011 he began working with people who no other expert or doctor wanted to. Why? Because he refuses to accept conventional wisdom. And he believes in the body's ability to heal itself when it's given the right ingredients. Through his innovative methods, DiClementi has had dramatic success and his clients now report natural, sustained energy all day long without a "crash."He teaches men and women suffering from low energy how to turn back their biological clocks, improve energy production at the cellular level, and feel better than they've felt in years, often decades. In 2016, he released, "The Biohackers Guide To Upgraded Energy & Focus" which is packed with dozens of easy-to-use, innovative methods anyone can apply to rapidly optimize their physical and mental performance. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Why Anthony and his girlfriend got extremely sick after moving to a new apartment in California...[8:35] -Why Anthony uses a PEM device called OndaMed...[14:20] -Why hidden infections like Epstein Barr, Lyme, SIBO, parasites, yeast, candida and mold are aggravated by hidden variables such as WiFi...[20:00] -A special form of laser Anthony used when he had Lyme...[25:40] -How Anthony keeps himself jacked and strong...[32:15] -Why Anthony is not a fan of normal earthing mats and grounding mats...[42:20] -The molecular hydrogen Anthony uses and why...[44:33] -Dangerous fillers in your supplements...[48:18] -Why Anthony is such a big fan of oysters (and why he does a regularly scheduled coffee enema)...[50:00] -An alternative to coffee enemas for people who don't want to use them...[54:25] -And much more...

How To Heal Fascia Faster Piotr says: What would you recommend for recovering from a fascial injury? Would you recommend peptides or something else? In my response, I recommend: -Core Foundation by Eric Goodman -Becoming A Supple Leopard by Kelly Starrett -My article BPC-157 -Flexpulse PEMF -Marcpro EMS -Magnesium lotion Everything You Need To Know About Supercompensation Jen wrote: How far down into the "red" do you allow yourself to go with HRV? As a cyclist, I follow my coach's periodized training program- weekly, monthly, seasonally... (I race crits most weekends from April until July). So often I will have a hard week of workouts where I don't fully recover, followed by a lighter week where I might be recovered the entire week. I don't like how I feel when I see that I am only 21 or 25% recovered, and I worry that I am doing some damage. I don't get sick but I do feel extreme fatigue sometimes, which requires extra recovery methods. I guess I always wonder if this makes me a better athlete, or just increases the need to recover-know what I mean? In my response, I recommend: -NatureBeat HRV -Oura Amino Acids In Supplements Vs. Foods Caleb says: In terms of the recovery benefits, what is the difference between pill amino acids, powder amino acids and naturally taken in amino acids - like food? In my response, I recommend: -Kion Aminos -My podcast on amino acid utilization with Dr. Minkoff -Instagram.com/BenGreenfieldFitness How To Mentally Recover From Hard Training Elaina wrote: I'd really like to delve into understanding the recovery of self-esteem, particularly when placing expectations on oneself to perform and train when the body is ready but the mind throws a load of negatives. As an athlete and as part of a team it was easy to recover quicker as camaraderie and sharing of muscle pain seemed to overcome it psychologically. Now with family commitments and in an industry of helping others it becomes mentally draining to then recover for my next training session. In my response, I recommend: -Book: The Brave Athlete: Calm The F*ck Down Free And Easy Recovery Biohacks Jeff wrote: What are your top 5 free or least expensive recovery musts. In my response, I recommend: -Cold showers (I cite this new study on cold water immersion) -Intermittent fasting -Sun bathing -JOOVV light -Walking barefoot on ground -Earthrunners -Earthpulse -Flexpulse -Deep sleep cycles -NatureCBD -Sleep Remedy -Passionflower Extract -Acupressure Mat -Kava -Blue Light Blockers -SleepStream App (use pink noise) -tDCS (e.g. Halo) Prior to asking your question, do a search in upper right-hand corner of this website for the keywords associated with your question.
