The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.

Keto FAQ by Dr. Jacob Wilson

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wilson talk about how he grew up playing sports, his early interest in nutrition as it relates to performance and body composition, how the ketogenic diet is nothing new in the bodybuilding world, the “carb up” notion for muscle growth, how going low-carb shifts your primary fuel source to fat, why he wanted to write the Keto FAQ column for Bodybuilding.com, the adaptation period it takes for people to get into ketosis, the three biggest mistakes people make when they are unsuccessful at getting ketogenic, what he thinks about a cyclical ketogenic diet, why the dosage of carbohydrates consumed matters, why the mouse studies of a ketogenic diet isn’t a well-formulated one, how the ketogenic studies on children with epilepsy tend to go too low on protein and contain little fiber, the upcoming studies his lab is doing looking at the connection between the ketogenic diet and gut health, whether there are any issues with women doing a ketogenic diet, and why he’s a big fan of my book Keto Clarity.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

999: Dr. Gerry Mullin Says Balancing Your Gut Flora Is The Key To Optimal Health

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

The rise in popularity of ketogenic diets is undeniable and it’s coming from a variety of angles. From people who are using it to treat a chronic disease to athletes seeking to improve their exercise performance, it seems everyone is interested in the benefits that come from eating a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. For sports psychologist and skeletal muscle physiologist Dr. Jacob Wilson, PhD, professor and director of the strength & sports nutrition laboratory in the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance at the University of Tampa, educating the masses on the proper way to get into a state of nutritional ketosis is critical. One such educational piece he wrote all about keto that was published on the popular BodyBuilding.com website entitled Ketogenic Dieting: Frequently Asked Questions spawned such great interest that Dr. Wilson created this Keto FAQ video to complement it.
