Fasting VS Dieting (calorie restriction): Health Benefits Depend on Fasting Window, New Study Finds

It’s common knowledge that calorie restriction is a validated strategy to extend lifespan and delay the onset of age-associated diseases. But there’s a new wrinkle that’s muddied the waters of this calorie restriction (CR) research, which, needless to say, has up to now been derived mainly from studies conducted in rodents (animal models).

Obesity , Leptin & Risk of Autoimmunity: a Problem in Achieving Herd Immunity

Scientists find lean subjects made protective antibodies after infection while obese subjects did not make protective antibodies—they made maladaptive autoantibodies instead. Researchers speculate that leptin plays a role in skewing the immune response toward autoimmunity after infection. Here's the details!

REF: Ekblom-Bak, E., et al. (2021). Cardiorespiratory fitness and lifestyle on severe COVID-19 risk in 279,455 adults: a case control study. International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, 1–16.

02:30 Physical inactivity is associated with a 32% increased risk for being hospitalized from SARS COVI2. 10% of COVID hospitalizations were linked to physical inactivity alone.

03:30 People who were physically inactive in the 2 years leading up to COVID 19 outbreak, had a significantly higher chance of being hospitalized, admitted to the ICU and dying from COVID 19, compared with those who reported 150 cumulative minutes of exercise over the course of a week.

04:45 25 to 30% of skinny people are metabolically obese, with fat in and around their organs. It is ectopic fat deposition. Visceral fat is independently corelated with increased risk of many diseases and poor outcomes with COVID 19.

05:26 Visceral adiposity is associated with severe COVID 19. Subcutaneous fat was not.

08:00 Many of our immune cells are susceptible to cellular senescence, irreversible growth arrest. Senescent cells release biologic pheromones, attracting other cells to become senescent. Senescent cells accumulate during ageing and accelerate ageing.  

11:55 The COVID 19 death rate reported in the Sweden study was .03%, even with open schools and no mask mandates.

12:49 People who contracted COVID 19 in Sweden generally had higher BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure and increased numbers of underlying health conditions.  They were often daily smokers, had lower VO2 max scores, and less favorable exercise patterns compared to those who did not become ill.

13:38 Being overweight was associated with a 2-fold increased odds, and being obese or severely obese was associated with a 3-fold increased odds of having a severe COVID case, compared with those with normal waist circumference.

14:16 Underlying health conditions had the greatest increase in odds, 1.88 for one diagnosis, up to a 4.55 greater increased odds with those with 4 to 5 chronic diseases.

14:41 High psychologic stress was associated with a 1.36% increased in odds of severe COVID. Daily smoking increased odds for severe outcomes .6%.

15:00 There are strong associations of several lifestyle related risk factors, including cardiorespiratory fitness, being overweight or obese, perceived stress and high blood pressure with severe COVID 19.

03:10 Rigidly structured nutrition is not sustainable.
05:00 We take nutrition advice from people with extreme physiques.
07:02 We do not have a weight loss issue. We have a problem keeping weight off.
14:10 Resistance training is a superior form of exercise for fat loss, heart health, and insulin resistance.
14:50 Resistance training stopped the progression of beta amyloid plaques that cause Alzheimer’s, according to an Australian study.
17:40 Resistance training is using resistance specifically to build strength and muscle.
19:00 Running is a skill that needs practice and instruction.
20:05 Resistance training is all about form and technique.
24:30 The calorie burn during exercise is not very important in cardio because your body prioritizes energy conservation and efficiency.
26:00 Roughly half of the weight you lose with cardio, is muscle.
27:01 Strength training creates a less efficient, faster metabolism.
29:32 Weight lost through resistance training is body fat.
30:30 All you need is two days a week of resistance training to bring strength, tone and a faster metabolism.
32:30 Muscle memory: Building muscle the first time may take a while. Losing that muscle is slow. Regaining it is much faster than the initial buildup.
44:20 Gross motor movement compound exercises are most effective for building muscle.
45:50 Your central nervous system controls how your muscles fire, your strength and stability.
48:10 Proprioception, knowing where you are in space, increases with resistance training.
51:00 Resistance training elicits immediate and long-term hormonal responses.
51:35 Resistance training is the only pro-tissue form of exercise.
53:35 Resistance training reliably increases androgen receptors in men and women.
55:55 Low testosterone increases cancer risk, increases risk of heart disease, increases Alzheimer’s and dementia risk, decreases quality of life.
56:48 The average 25-year-old male today has the testosterone levels of the average 60-year-old in 1980.
57:00 A 20-year-old male today have the grip strength of a 60-year-old in 1980.
57:50 Grip strength can predict all-cause mortality better than any other single metric.
01:05:30 Pushing yourself to maximum performance is counter longevity.
01:07:00 A low protein diet generally reduces longevity.
01:09:55 Obese people have weaker bones, less muscle and more bodyfat.

Low Carb VS Low Calorie Dieting: What’s Best Way to Lose Fat, Scientists Explain

When it comes to weight loss, there's two primary models to explain the best strategy: The carbohydrates-insulin model and the calorie imbalance, also known as the CICO model. In this show we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these models and how to best approach fat loss.

01:35 Physicians are taught that weight loss is only triggered by caloric restriction. It is the traditional energy balance model.

02:00 The traditional energy balance model does not consider your circadian rhythm or phenotypes, like those of us who over-excrete insulin, have epigenetic factors, or have adaptive thermogenesis.

02:20 Cyclical dieting down regulates your resting metabolic rate, adaptive thermogenesis.

03:20 The carbohydrate/insulin model of obesity is centered around insulin. Hyperpalatable ultra-processed high glycemic foods increase the energy circulating in your blood, causing a compensatory hyperinsulinemic physiologic state. This causes a decrease in the amount of nutrients in your bloodstream after you eat. Your blood energy reduces to levels below before you ate, causing hunger and over-eating at the next meal.

05:35 Cellular semi-starvation: In a high sugar/high insulin state, fat cells accumulate energy intended for the now insulin resistant muscles, they undergo lipogenesis, storing lots of energy. Therefore, there is a lack of energy in the bloodstream. Your brain believes that your critical tissues are starving.

06:40 Hormones surge in this state of cellular semi-starvation; there is a surge of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol.

07:10 In drugs that increase insulin, insulin signaling caused fat gain of up to 5 pounds in a 2-month period.

07:35 The energy balance model considers all calories as metabolically equal.

08:05 Hyperpalatable ultra-processed high glycemic foods lend themselves to overconsumption and hormone alteration.

08:20 Energy intake is regulated by insulin, hunger satiety cues from the brain, leptin, ghrelin, and habits. A few nights of poor sleep increases hunger.

09:00 The more lean muscle mass you have, the more you increase your resting metabolic rate.

10:00 Insulin is pleiotropic, meaning it does many different things within your body.

13:50 Biggest Loser 6 year follow up study revealed that many participants continued to gain wait after their participation in the program’s rapid weight loss. When they regained their weight, their resting metabolic rates were depressed lower than when they started.

15:45 The energy balance model works best for young fitness competitors and bodybuilders.

16:40 A high glycemic diet increases levels of glucose in the blood, causing alterations in gut hormones and the insulin to glucagon ratio.

17:10 To get into a fat burning physiologic state, you need low glucose, low insulin and elevated glucagon. The insulin to glucagon ratio helps to unlock stored fat, increases your liver’s synthesis of ketones, and helps your white fat behave more like brown fat, increasing your resting metabolic rate.

20:00 Weight centered approaches to weight loss does not lead to lasting improvements in muscle mass or cardio-respiratory or favorable changes in overall health risk.

20:43 Sustainable changes are made when focusing on improving fitness, strength, muscle mass, sleep quality, HRV lead, independent of weight loss.

21:00 Physically fit people, no matter their weight, have a significant reduction in all-cause mortality compared to unfit individuals of the same body weight category.

22:34 Weightlifting and interval training are better ways to reduce all-cause mortality and risk for severe COVID, improve cardio-respiratory fitness and better way to help with fat loss.

26:20 Eating less causes adaptive thermogenesis. Instead, you could practice time restricted feeding and eat higher quality food.

00:54 Your mitochondria play an important role in your body’s innate immune system mounting an antiviral immune response.
01:20 Lifestyle interventions impact the health and function of your mitochondria. Mitochondria are powerful in preventing several diseases, including infectious disease. These include fatty liver disease, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases and even cancer.
02:18 Mitochondria are intracellular organelles. They are responsible for making energy (ATP) for your cells.
03:40 If you have poor mitochondrial health, your cells do not have sufficient energy, and you may have insulin resistance, fatigue, or brain fog. It may mean that you will not release sufficient antiviral peptides when you are exposed to a pathogen.
05:00 Physical activity is protective against death, hospitalization, and severe disease.
05:24 Mitochondria are important for liver health, brain health and metabolic health.
06:55 Beneficial affects of regular physical activity on immune function are at least partly mediated by mitochondrial fitness. Low mitochondrial fitness and low cardiorespiratory fitness may be important risk factors for COVID 19.
07:30 Poor mitochondrial health may be a link between established risk factors like age, underlying health conditions like obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic disease.
07:43 Physical activity or targeted pharmacological intervention that increase mitochondrial capacities likely increase mitochondrial function and may enhance innate immunity. Taking berberine or metformin prior to exposure has been shown to reduce risk for severe outcomes in COVID. Metformin is more protective in women than in men.
09:11 Individuals with poor cardiorespiratory fitness have increased risk for severe disease, hospitalization, requirement for being on a ventilator and death.
09:42 Low physical activity is linked with contracting COVID 19 and poor outcomes.
10:25 Mitochondria are critically involved in antiviral host responses.

01:50 Increased expression of innate immune system activation is found with obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension, and other chronic inflammatory diseases.
02:55 Overweight individuals tend to have a higher viral load.
03:10 Natural killer cells deal with pathogens, bacteria, and viruses and cytokines released by natural killer cells, help to signal your adaptive immune system.
04:00 Natural killer cells are important in preventing cancer.
04:15 Vitamin D and exercise are major determinants of natural killer cell activity.
04:40 Age, gender, vitamin D and exercise are associated with immune function determined by natural killer cell activity.
04:45 Age was a determining factor for low natural killer cell activity in men, but not women.
05:10 Sufficient levels of vitamin D reduced risk of low natural killer cell activity in men.
05:30 Exercise reduced risk of low natural killer cells in women and in both men and women over the age of 60.
05:45 A natural killer cell assay is not commercially available here in the US.
07:30 Decreased natural killer cell function in immunologically normal elderly is associated with increased risk for severe infections and mortality in general.
07:40 Natural killer cells may play a critical role in the early immune response.
08:20 An exhausted innate immune system can become depleted with a severe infection.
10:20 Medium to high intensity exercise decreased the risk for very low natural killer cell activity in women.
11:50 The vitamin D level sweet spot appears to be between 40 and 60 nanograms/ml.
13:25 Low natural killer cell activity in women did not seem be impacted by age as much as with men.
13:55 The size of your thymus gland and the amount of T cells that you produce decline (immunosenescence) as you age. Natural killer cells may compensate for this.
14:40 Over-exercise is associated with greater odds of low natural killer cell activity.
15:30 Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency were associated with increased susceptibility to COVID-19
17:00 Immune system assays are expensive. You can triangulate looking at things like white blood cell count, C-reactive protein.
20:45 Each 1 unit increase in BMI, reflected a 12% increase in the risk for severe COVID-19.

378 Kids Have Died from COVID: Correction to Yesterday's Podcast

I misspoke in yesterday’s podcast when saying there’s been, “126 cumulative COVID-19 deaths in children.”

There’s actually been 378 cumulative deaths in children, as of August 12, 2021 in the USA. Very sorry about that.

This brings the case death rate down to 0.01%. (And 0% in some states as not every state has recorded a C*19 death in a child yet.)

The estimated number of children under the age of 19 in the USA is estimated to be around ~ 75,000,000.

Interestingly, during this same time period over 540,918 children have died from other causes. (As of August 12th, 2021.)

So COVID-19 represents 0.07% of all childhood deaths.

Sorry for the confusion.

More about today's show:

After a 24-hour fast, serotonin was increased in appetite regulatory regions in lean but not obese subjects.

Researchers did further analysis and found that fasting-related shifts in insulin and fatty acids were responsible for much of this shift in brain chemicals in the lean subjects.

Here are a few key takeaways from this video:

-Serotonin plays an important role in appetite signaling
-Eating earlier in the day may support higher levels of serotonin and thus better appetite control
-Obese individuals may need to pair exercise with their fasting regimes to gain the most benefit

05:35 Obese study subjects had significantly higher levels of poor-quality muscle, which was independently associated with an increased risk of metabolic syndrome.
05:50 Muscle Fatness/Obesity/Bone Loss is osteosarcopenic obesity.
09:30 Lifting to failure means that you cannot do another.
10:44 With intense exercise, muscle was able to signal white adipose tissue via an extra-cellular vesical, causing increased sensitization to catecholamine stimulation of lipolysis.
11:48 Lipolysis is the release of energy.
12:30 The more muscle you have, the higher your resting metabolic rate.
12:55 Pushing your muscles to failure can directly enhance your fat cell’s ability to release stored energy.
13:00 Fat oxidation occurs within the mitochondria within muscle tissue and liver.
13:30 Many fat lipids are recycled. This recycling declines as you become more insulin resistant.

Dr. Ben Lynch on Gene Variants that Impact Your Mood, Memory and Gut Health

Dr. Ben Lynch discusses more about histamine, gut health and why gallbladder issues are so common and tips to optimize. We also look at gene testing and why considering clusters of interrelated genes and their associated networks instead of myopically focusing on one good or bad gene variant is much more useful for determining your health weaknesses and strengths.

Link to Books and Full Notes: https://bit.ly/3B8reeE

Key Takeaways:

06:23 Genetic testing identifies a potential susceptibility to health and mental health complications. It is one of many tools.
06:50 Dirty Genes book is full of quizzes which identifies genetic issues without doing genetic testing.
07:45 Lifestyle habits are passed down through generations, so issues may not be caused by genes.
08:35 Less than 5% of cancers are heritable. Only 1% of Parkinson’s is genetic.
09:25 Conventional medicine using pharmacological interventions are by force. Naturopathic and functional medicine is nurture and restorative, with an appreciation for the biochemical network.
10:50 Look at genes in a wholistic way. There are about 18,000 genes in our bodies.
12:10 A single variant is minuscule compared to the other 18,000 genes communicating. And there are many other variables that make studying a single variant complicated. For example, is the study subject sleeping in a hot or cold room, mouth breathing, has a sleep partner snoring, and loaded with stress? It appears as though epigenetics overrides the majority of other provocations.
13:40 You must look at the research with a wholistic view. Look at many studies.
14:35 You do not need genetic testing. Listen to how your body is feeling and give those areas in need more love, attention, and protection.
16:12 Some genes are highly influenced by epigenetics and others are not. Sometimes is it a matter of workload for the gene.
18:00 If you have the MTHFR variant, you are less likely to die from malaria. You may have a reduced ability to methylate folate, but methylfolate can be found in leafy green vegetables and animal livers.
20:40 At some point, mutated genes helped your ancestors survive. Our genes are adapting to our new environment, and we are passing this on to our kids.
23:20 Dr. Lynch had to choose 7 genes out of 18,000 for the book. He chose MTHFR because it effects the entire genome. Two glutathione genes were chosen because oxidative stress effects the entire genome.
24:00 CMT and MAOA were chosen for their impact upon brain function.
24:30 DAO works on histamine metabolism in the gut, which can cause leaky gut.
25:00 PEMT: Solid cell membranes create cell membranes and create storage for histamine and your neurotransmitters. This phosphatidyl choline synthesizing gene highly polymorphic.
26:45 Nitric oxide is important for emergent heart issues.
26:50 By focusing on supporting these 7 genes, you are positively influencing all of your genes.
28:45 Phosphatidyl choline keeps your bile from being thick and sludgy. You need 10 parts phosphatidyl choline to one part cholesterol to have your bile flow.
30:23 If you are an obese woman in your 40s and still fertile, you will struggle with a gallbladder issue, especially if you have a PEMT variant. The primary stone in the gallbladder is formed from cholesterol. It stems from fatty liver.
32:44 The phosphatidyl choline supplement is used to improve bile flow, but since it is a lipid, it cannot be fully absorbed to improve bile flow. With PEMT variant, reduce consumption of fats and reduce the workload on that gene.
33:45 Visceral manipulation is a near instant fix for bile flow. It is massage to compress your liver. You will have an amazing bowel movement. Support with herbs that stimulate bile flow and production, like glycine, taurine, bitter herbs, ginger, and artichoke. Then supplement with phosphatidyl choline.
36:00 There is data about bile acids and dysfunctional bile acid signatures in the brain and heart.
36:50 Bile has antimicrobial properties. Taking ox bile at meals to help with fat metabolization. Ox bile taken between meals gets into your small intestine to kill off overgrowth bacteria. Maybe take it with a little charcoal. Bacteria release gasses and compounds that cause issue when they die and break open. Binding these is important.
38:28 Acid reflux is bile coming through a leaky pyloric sphincter.
39:10 The StrateGene test for neurotransmitters looks at the reduction, transport, binding to the receptor and the synthesis/metabolism of key neurotransmitters.
41:20 Pesticides slow the HTR1B gene. They bind to the serotonin receptor.
42:00 The metabolism of neurotransmitters can be fast, typical or slow. Many medications target the reuptake of neurotransmitters to keep it in the brain, rather than have it reabsorbed.
43:00 Many of us who take SSRIs get no effect because they have no or too little serotonin in the brain for the medication to work with.
43:30 5-HTP is a primary precursor to serotonin. The DEC gene converts 5-HTP to serotonin, uses vitamin B-6.
48:20 Sleep is associated with serotonin. Serotonin is converted to your melatonin. Taking supplemental melatonin may mean that serotonin is still in your brain, producing a “wired and tired” feeling.
50:55 Adderall and Ritalin are addictive amphetamines. Amphetamines block the reuptake of dopamine. Harm can be done with higher doses of amphetamines when we already have a slow ability to remove dopamine from the brain.
53:50 Medications can be useful as an intermittent intervention. Many times, non-pharmaceutical interventions can be used strategically with genetic testing.
55:05 Ritalin is toxic to the brain because it keeps so much dopamine in the brain, making dopamine quinone. Three toxic compounds are produced when you break down dopamine.
58:40 We think that Parkinson’s is a low dopamine state, so patients are prescribed L-dopa. L-dopa may have been the reason their brain was toxic to begin with from a messed up MTHFR.
59:15 Supplementing with dopamine hastens the destruction of the Parkinson’s brain. Parkinson’s is a damaged state due to a pro-oxidative environment in the brain, possibly due to more elevated dopamine or a trapping of some of the toxic metabolites of dopamine in the brain.
01:01:17 Quinones are highly reactive and hard to calm and neutralize. Glutathione does not neutralize a reactive quinone. PQQ is helpful. Carnosine is also helpful and rapidly metabolized by carnosinase and converted into histamine and histidine. N-acetyl carnosine keeps carnosine in circulation longer. It is protective of the brain and is also used in eye drops for cataracts.
01:05:20 Eye health/function is an indicator of brain health. Your eyes contain the most mitochondria per density of any organ or body part. Eyes use a lot of oxygen and requires a lot of glutathione and other antioxidants for support.

New Report: Common Health Conditions Linked with High Risk for COVID-19: Anxiety, Obesity, Blood Pressure and More

New data from 4.8 million hospitalizations finding 94.9% of COVID-19 patients had very common, yet largely preventable, underlying health conditions, including:

-High blood pressure
-Lipid imbalances (commonly caused by insulin resistance)

Data from 4.8 million hospital visits debunk the media's constant lie that 'perfectly healthy people are dropping like flies' from the virus.

We review new data collected from 800 US hospitals and 4.8 million medical records from March 2020 to March 2021. The report found that of 540,000 hospitalized for C*19, only 27,000 (5.5%) did not have a chronic health condition.

Over 513,000 of the 540,000 (94.9%) hospitalized for C*19 had at least one chronic health condition; some had as many as 10 or more. (Needless to say a super majority of these conditions reported with high frequencies are created by people's own nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices: insulin resistance, obesity, mental health issues and more.)

The presence of two or more underlying conditions increases the odds of death nearly 2 fold compared to those with none; 10 or more conditions increases odds of death by nearly 4 fold.

What's even worse--considering the constant media fear mongering--anxiety was found to be the second strongest predictor of death, after obesity. This is after adjusting for age and other variables.

Let’s use this new report to nudge our friends to start making better nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices.

We then discuss how to avoid the common meal-timing mistake many make when Intermittent Fasting or eating OMAD, adding more evidence to the idea that we should start feeding earlier in the day and start our fast in the early evening.

Time Stamps: 

07:50 Periodization is the organized structure to your training.
09:15 Your workout program should respect your goals.
11:10 Changing up your modality can accelerate weight loss during the adaptation to that modality.
11:35 The overload principle is where you do more than you did previously: weight, weight lifted over time or weight lifted in a session.
12:40 The gas principle is your general adaptation syndrome, which can lead to maladaptation.
13:10 Four to 6 weeks is time to make changes/variations.
14:10 Hypertrophy is the building of the muscle. Strength is when we ask the muscle to express more force.
17:30 Your recovery is more difficult if you are always redlining during your workout.
20:10 Powerlifting focuses on the glutes. Glutes stabilize the pelvis and helps keep the spine in a neutral position.
21:55 Strong lats and glutes are important for injury prevention and performance.
23:05 Hamstrings help stabilize the pelvis.
27:40 Raw lifting does not use clothing or other accessories that assists with the lift (geared). Raw and geared are separated in competition.
31:00 You can improve your pullup strength with bands.
31:47 Bands accommodate resistance. They are a great way to offload and assist in the bottom portion of the pullup movement.
36:10 Isometrics have been shown to have a pain-relieving effect.
37:00 Yielding isometrics is holding the weight for a period of time before completing the whole rep. Overcoming isometrics is like pushing the bar into an immoveable object.
37:40 Sticking point is where the bar or movement slows down the most, showing where you are weakest in your range of motion.
38:15 Tempo is when you pause where you are weakest or just before where you are weakest.
41:25 A similar movement pattern with fast movement, twitching, can potentiate a lot of type 2 muscle fibers and recruit bigger motor units.
42:05 Failure in lifting is your body giving you feedback and inhibit the muscle from producing force as a way to protect it.
50:20 Bands and suspending weights adds variables that require building of stability. Chains can be used for hypertrophy or strength..
54:00 Increasing the weight as you get stronger, begs you to put more force into the movement.
54:50 Power can be developed with a wide range of intensities.
55:30 Chains for workout are usually ¾ inch or 5/8 inch in 5- or 6-foot chunks. You can layer lighter chains, but you can order online.
59:30 With the Kabuki Kratos flywheel training system, the harder you pull or push (moving the flywheel), the harder it pulls back on you.
01:04:50 Kettlebells are a versatile tool.

01:01:03 Greg did a 10 day fast to start the year. It kicked his butt.

01:06:25 Once you realize that you can fast for days at a time, you don’t mind missing a meal.

01:08:35 A study of people asthma found that doing 12 days of alternate weekday fasting cut the need for asthma medicines.

01:10:05 To compliment alternate day fasting, athletic people would be advised to eat high protein (keto/carnivore).

01:10:55 Our ancestors ate locally seasonal and we could too.

01:11:42 What your long-ago ancestors ate influences the efficacy of your diet.

01:14:05 Refined carbs and the combination of refined carbs with fat are not found in nature.

01:18:50 Big food wants us to believe in the power of calories rather than carbohydrates. 01:22:40 Masking to prevent viral spread in non-healthcare settings does not have strong support data.

01:24:41 It is healthy to question everything. Who is paying the expert?

01:25:45 Schools have your child for 6 hours a day and exert a great influence.

01:29:14 The majority of people who go through gender reassignment at a young age regret it later.

01:36:06 Cold thermogenesis is a good stress that favorably affects the immune system. It causes mitochondria within your fat cells to enrich.

01:38:29 Try to stay in the cold shower as long as you can. Listen to your body. Make a cold shower part of your routine.

01:52:03 You should be taping your mouth to enhance your sleep. Some experts say that you should tape your mouth during exercise.

-----------------------------------------Show Notes--------------------------------------


00:00 Intro


04:00 Intermittent fasting is a good solution for stubborn fat. 04:15 Your diet has to work for you for the long run: psychologically, biologically and sociologically.

06:38 Fat is a complex endocrine organ, like the thyroid and adrenal glands.

06:56 Fat produces critical hormones that your body depends upon, like leptin.

07:03 When you lose fat you get lower levels of leptin, which binds with your hypothalamus and your skeletal muscle.

07:55 When skeletal muscle notices less leptin, it burns fewer calories.

09:48 Your genetics may cause you to have to work harder to keep off or lose weight.

10:15 Viruses, age, gender and hormones impact weight. Our fat busting hormones decline with age.

14:00 How your body responds to a food is individual.

14:50 Prolonged overnight fasting prolongs the effects of fat buster, growth hormone.

15:12 With intermittent fasting you get more glucagon, more leptin (so you feel more satiated), and more willpower for making better choices.

16:35 Staying low calorie all day never gives you a sense of satisfaction, leading to increased failure of diet.

19:14 Subcutaneous fat is under your skin. Visceral fat, under the stomach wall, leads to problems with the immune system, diabetes, and heart disease. Brown fat burns calories during cold exposure and beige fat that can turn into brown.

19:42 Visceral fat cells become hypoxic, sending signals of duress and your immune system responds with inflammation, which interferes with insulin signaling.

20:50 Fat releases adiponectin which guides the fat you eat and the fat you release to the right places in your body; to be stores as subcutaneous rather than visceral.

21:22 Sumo wrestlers have subcutaneous fat, not visceral. They exercise 6 – 7 hours per day, releasing higher levels of adiponectin.

22:13 About 2 hours of aerobic activity per day can move your fat to the right areas.

23:30 To see if you have visceral fat, lay on your back and a paunch on your stomach stays there, that is visceral fat. 25:35 Ancestral famines create a thrifty genotype which causes you to hold fat for later.

29:30 Viruses can make animals fat. Some cross into humans. 38:10 You need to be in the right mindset to lose weight.

40:50 HIIT in the evening while fasting busts through weight loss plateaus for Dr. Tara.

41:25 Temptation bundling: Bring something pleasurable into your workout to enhance your ability to create a habit.

43:48 A habit is more reliable than willpower. Reducing the number of decisions you make during the day reduces decision fatigue.

44:16 Successful dieters can get back on their diet the next day. Perfect isn’t the goal.

06:25 Sleep disorders expedite ageing, even in children.
07:40 Sleep disorders are an endocrinologic disorder.
12:20 Pantothenic acid is made only by your microbiome.
12:50 Sleep apnea and insomnia are characterized by poor body chemistry for sleep.
13:25 We have 4 complicated linked sleep switches.
14:52 Vitamin D feeds the gut bugs that make B vitamins and the vagus nerve directly connects our gut bugs to our brains.
18:10 Dr. Stasha Gominak sees sleep apnea, requiring c-pap is an end stage disease.
20:20 Every night the tongue sends feedback signals directing growth to the brain.
21:15 When the mouth is open during sleep, the jaw and the rest of the face will not develop normally.
22:00 The chemistry of the brain plays a part in sleep disordered children.
29:40 Vitamins don’t fix people. You need to be asleep to apply them to repair.
36:40 B Vitamins play a huge role in our sleep.
37:40 B vitamins come from gut bugs, not your food.
42:30 The 8 B vitamins are created as an 8-pack in specific ratios.
46:00 B5 paralyzes us for sleep.
52:20 Children who develop autism have an abnormal immune system and microbiome and are deficient in acetylcholine and endocannabinoids.
55:50 Normal sleep is needed to improve the functioning of an autistic child.
01:11:13 If you have autoimmune disease, each immunization risks flaring the condition.
01:23:49 Acetylcholine is responsible for our ability to concentrate during the day and responsible for our ability to enter sleep, stay in sleep and get paralyzed in sleep.
01:27:40 Acetylcholine is a major player in the parasympathetic nervous system/rest and digest.
01:30:02 Improper heartrate variability means that your sympathetic nervous system is in overdrive.
01:32:36 Acetylcholine, not only acts like a neurotransmitter, it acts as an anti-inflammatory hormone.
01:35:08 Some scientist believe that ADD, as well as autism, is a disease of acetylcholine deficiency.
01:38:00 Your microbiome makes your serotonin, using vitamin D and pyridoxine.
01:41:10 Vitamin D2 is not the same as vitamin D3.
01:44:00 A vitamin D blood level of between 60 – 80 is optimal for a sleep disordered person.
01:44:50 The accurate vitamin D testing method is the LCMS.
01:54:37 Vitamin D works directly upon the pituitary.
01:55:40 1,25-OH is directly linked to the repair of DNA damage resulting from UVB light hitting the skin.
01:56:30 Each hormone in your body is designed to have a unique affect on each organ that has that receptor.
01:59:00 Dr. Gominak has a workbook on her website for you to use.
