  • TMHS 248: The Power Of Vulnerability And Taking Off Our Masks - With Lewis Howes

    · 01:17:26 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    There’s a Japanese proverb that says, “You have three faces. The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family. The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.” This statement reflects something beautiful, chilling, and very real about how we operate as human beings. We all wear masks. And it’s not a bad thing. We put on masks to accentuate different parts of our character. Sometimes you might put on the mask of a strong leader, while at other times you wear the mask of a humble servant. You might put on the mask of the tough guy or girl to draw a line in the sand and get your point across, while at other times you wear the mask of the vulnerability, letting your guard down to whatever life may bring. We can pick these masks up and put them down. It’s healthy, it’s natural, and it’s embedded in how we connect. But, what happens when a mask gets stuck on? First of all, please know that you’ve definitely had this happen before! For me, I think of Jim Carrey in the movie The Mask. At first this incredible mask gives him superhuman abilities… then, over time, the mask takes over his life. He loses himself, and taking the mask off seems impossible. The danger of getting a mask stuck on is that you can forget that it’s just a mask, and it’s not all of who you are. Today we’re going to dive into some of the most valuable insights you’ll ever come across when it comes to your own inner psychology. New York Times bestselling author Lewis Howes is here to share the goods on how we can instantly cultivate a better relationship with ourselves, our loved ones, and the world at large. Right now is the time to see the true reflection of ourselves so that we can be empowered in our choices, confident in who we really are, and capable of change when we need it. Simply click play, listening deeply, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: What the most important relationship is in your life. Why unwarranted aggression is often a sign of a deeper problem. How vulnerability can open the door for real strength. Why you can still feel unhappy after accomplishing your biggest goals. How sharing your hardships and dark secrets can make people connect with you even more. The shocking rates that men commit homicide and suicide compared to women. How having an “8 Mile moment” can free you from worry about what other people think of you. What women can do to help the men in their life open up, connect, and have better relationships. What the “Stoic Mask” is and how it affects our lives. How our thoughts can lead to devastating illnesses. Why the masks we wear can actually be very helpful in our lives. Why we tend to identify great athletes as great men (even when that might not be the case). How focusing on material things can be inspiring (and how it can backfire). How many of our masks are fitted onto us as kids. Why giving and receiving affection can be tough for many people. How acknowledgement drives many of our decisions. The powerful acknowledgment exercise you can do RIGHT NOW to change lives. * Download The Transcript Items mentioned in this episode include: Organifi.com ⇐ Use the coupon code model for 20% off The School of Greatness - With Guest Lewis Howes Master Your Mindset - With Guest Prince Ea Epigenetics & The Biology Of Belief - With Guest Dr. Bruce Lipton Mind Over Medicine - With Guest Dr. Lissa Rankin School of Greatness Podcast iTunes / Stitcher The Mask Of Masculinity - Get the book right here!

  • TMHS 247: Whole Grain Deception And Getting Undoctored - With William Davis, M.D.

    · 01:08:51 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    With all of our apparent advancements in medicine (screening, drugs, vaccines, surgeries, etc.) you would think that the rates of chronic diseases would be going down. But they’re not. In fact, since many of today’s standard treatments hit the scenes decades ago, disease rates have been on the rise, without any sign of letting up. Somewhere, somehow, conventional medicine missed the mark. It’s the biggest, baddest billion-dollar system in the United States. Yet, millions of people are struggling each day to receive any true health solutions from it. Today’s our opportunity to look at exactly what’s happening inside of our healthcare system, and, most importantly, what we can actually do about it. Dr. William Davis has been there… performing thousands of surgical procedures and seeing the same folks coming in again and again searching for lasting help. Though, all he could do was provide temporary solutions. Through his own health crisis, and searching outside of the failing healthcare system to help his patients, he was able to transform his health along with countless other people. Now, he’s the NY Times bestselling author of one of the most read and highest praised books of the decade. After Wheat Belly hit the shelves, thousands upon thousands of stories began flooding in from people all over the world who were regaining their health from the grips of chronic illness. Diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, obesity, and more, were not only seeing vast improvement, but many people were completely cured (with Wheat Belly to thanks for it). Everything was obviously looking up, but there was one glaring problem… There were also countless stories of patients telling their physician about Wheat Belly and wanting to work to get off their medications or avoid surgery by practicing what they were learning, but their doctor would simply brush them off. “That’s not proven.” “It’s too risky.” “It won’t work for you.” These are some of the things they’d hear. The reality, however, is that the science was proven, it was all far less risky than the drugs or surgery they were facing, and it was working for so many people that, today, it’s literally changed the way our society looks at healthcare. The change is happening, but it may not be happening fast enough. Thankfully, Dr. Davis is back on The Model Health Show today to talk about what it means to be Undoctored, and how to address some of the biggest issues with our healthcare system right now. Several things you are about to learn will probably shock you. But in order to find a solution, we have to know exactly what we’re dealing with. You’re about to receive some huge insights into what it takes to be empowered and successful in your healthcare decisions. Just tune in, take good notes, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: What the #1 expense on our economy is. Why using scare tactics and separatism to get people to be healthy can backfire. Whether or not removing wheat from your diet can cause nutrient deficiencies. What the real enemy of the healthcare system is. Which organizations fund nutrition programs in colleges and medical schools (this is shocking!). Why humans are physiologically unequipped to eat grasses. How conventional wheat products are making millions of people sick and overweight (you need to know this!). How long humans have actually been consuming grains. What anthropologists can tell us about how grains impacted human development. The alarming way that grains are tied to suicide. Why whole grains are better for you than refined grains in some ways and worse in others. How to more accurately track your blood sugar. How doctors are incentivized to prescribe drugs and do unnecessary procedures. Why our access to health resources has grown exponentially. Why you’ll be paying high rates for health insurance even if you’re healthy. Whether or not the movie What The Health is accurate about sugar-related science. What you can do right now to become Undoctored. Items mentioned in this episode include: Foursigmatic.com/model ⇐ Get 15% off your daily health elixirs and coffee!

  • TMHS 244: Immunomodulation, Adaptogens, And Healing Mushrooms - With Tero Isokauppila

    · 01:09:06 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    The future of medicine is really the past of medicine. I know that sounds pretty deep... but hear me out. We have records that at least two thousand years ago, physicians were prescribing medicinal mushrooms to their patients. Viral infection, headache, low libido… you name it. Medicinal mushrooms ranked at the top of the list in effectiveness for most illnesses. Now, here’s the rub. They also prescribed them to patients to help keep from being sick in the first place (not just when they had a problem). It’s a very different model today, where our healthcare practitioners profit only when you are sick. Contrast that with the practitioner of old, who was paid to keep you well. One of these approaches needs more sick people around. The other one is single-focused on doing what it takes to keep you healthy. The irony is that today’s physician is unknowingly prescribing drugs from fungi too. A sizeable percentage of the top pharmaceutical drugs are derived from mushrooms and other fungi (you’ve heard of penicillin, right?). They have been studied and used because they work. The problem with the pharmaceutical model, however, is the rampant occurrence of side effects. They’re obviously not using the thing found in nature as practitioners did in the past. Instead, they isolate, isolate, isolate until it’s just a shadow of it’s former self (and shadows can be pretty creepy as it is). Today we’re going to look at exactly why medicinal mushrooms are so effective that Big Pharma loves them. But, more importantly, we’ll be diving in on the very best mushrooms to utilize to keep you healthy in the first place… without side effects (unless you count being more awesome as a side effect). Tero Isokauppila is back on the show to blow your mind with practical tips, clinically proven data, and even a recipe for chocolate mousse that can help protect you from the common cold and more. Click play, take good notes, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: Why exercise benefits several areas of our lives. The surprising amount of pharmaceutical drugs that utilize fungi. How mushrooms and human DNA are related. What immunomodulation means. Why some substances can act like caffeine for your immune system. What natural killer cells are and how medicinal mushrooms train them. How a food or herb can be classified as an adaptogen. Which medicinal mushroom is amazing for your skin. How medicinal mushrooms are able to create vitamin D like humans do. Which mushroom is best for stress reduction and clinically proven to improve sleep. What the "three treasures" are in Chinese medicine. Which medicinal mushroom features the potent anticancer compound PSK. Why mushrooms are the original worldwide web. Why some mushrooms are actually great for fighting fungal infections. Which mushroom has been found to be effective for supporting weight loss. Whether or not medicinal mushrooms are safe for kids and pregnant mothers. How your respiratory system can be protected with a specific mushroom. Whether or not you should be using medicinal mushrooms in a daily basis. Items mentioned in this episode include: Foursigmatic.com/model ⇐ Get 15% off your daily health elixirs and coffee!

  • TMHS 243: How To Improve Your Digestion WITHOUT Changing Your Diet

    · 01:02:01 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    Digestion might be one of the most miraculous processes in the universe. If you think about it rationally, it’s a really, really strange and powerful phenomenon. Digestion is basically the process of taking something that’s outside of your body, and somehow, someway, it becomes a part of you… From there, the food lives on through you in a different form. You are a walking, talking patchwork quilt of all the things you’ve eaten over the years. Pretty weird, right? But it’s also pretty amazing! Now, when I say the things you’ve eaten over the years, that doesn’t mean that your body is still carrying cells from all of those gluten-free pumpkin muffins you ate over the holidays 2-years ago (oh, that’s just me, huh?). Your body’s cells are being renewed from the nutrients you give it all the time, that’s why there’s always an opportunity to right the ship, and make your body out of awesome stuff. But, the story doesn’t just stop there… There’s a lot more to digestion than the food you eat. Even if you’re deciding to eat healthier food, your investment might be short-changed if you’re not honoring some of the life-changing things you’ll be learning about today. Dr. Jillian Teta, the author of the hit book Natural Solutions for Digestive Health, is back on the show to help us process the little known things that make our digestion tick (beyond the food we eat!). So, if you’re eating a healthy diet but still not seeing the results you want, or if you’re not interested in changing your diet much at all, but still want to feel good and have strong digestive firepower, then this show will deliver the goods. Just click play, take good notes, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: Why the inside of your gut is sort of like a rain forest. What the enteric nervous system is (this is important!). Which important compounds the bacteria and cells in your gut are making for you. Three reasons people need digestive support beyond basic dietary changes. Why eating in your car might be hampering your digestion. Why the pace in which you eat can either enhance or depress your digestive function. The impact that chewing has on your overall digestion. What it means to be an angry eater. The simple science on why social media is so addictive. Why movement = better digestive movement. The importance of establishing a bathroom routine (especially if you need home court advantage!). When and how to take antibiotics (this is crucial!). What to look for when buying probiotics.

But, with motivation, there comes an overflow of focus and energy that puts conquering great feats on automatic. We’ve all done it. There’s something we say we want to accomplish… something with our fitness, our career, our relationship, etc… but our actions don’t really match up to the result we say we want. Maybe we started with ample motivation in the beginning, but it has shriveled up like it’s too cold outside.

  • TMHS 241: Eliminating Your Body's Unwanted Waste & Taking The Taboo Out Of Poo - With Bobby Edwards

    · 00:59:58 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    The well known phrase “you are what you eat” isn’t entirely accurate. This is because everything you eat doesn’t become “you”. And thank goodness for that! A lot of what you eat doesn’t make the cut as far as building materials, and it has to be eliminated. If that eliminatory process is hindered in any way, trouble starts brewing fast. Your digestion, assimilation, and elimination is the very foundation of your health. Yet, the elimination factor isn’t talked about nearly enough today. Poo is taboo, and it’s becoming a big problem. So many chronic illnesses are tied to poor elimination. Obvious things like constipation and hemorrhoids, but also not-so-obvious things like chronic fatigue and cancer. Today we’re covering some of the big issues with conventional methods of poop behavior (this might be the first time that “poop behavior” has been written, by the way), plus one of the most remarkable solutions that’s already helping countless people improve their health. Bobby Edwards is leading the charge in the mission to get folks educated about elimination, and he’s here today to share his family’s story, plus some game-changing insights that can support your health for a lifetime. In this episode you'll discover: What elimination means on a deeper level. Why fats are critical for the “brain” of your cells. Why the Squatty Potty was born out of necessity. How the human bowel is actually designed to prevent unwarranted pooping. Why squatting is the optimal position to completely eliminate waste. Why modern day toilets present a host of potential health issues. How straining on the toilet can be linked to cardiovascular problems. Why there are often books or magazines in modern day bathrooms. What hemorrhoids are (and what causes them). How your pelvic floor works and what happens during prolapse. The shocking rates of diverticulosis and how likely people are to get it. How constipation is intimately linked to colon cancer. Whether or not adding more fiber will help to improve your health. What tends to cause constipation when you travel.

  • TMHS 240: Happiness Vs. Pleasure And The Hacking Of The American Mind - With Dr. Robert Lustig

    · 01:05:40 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    Do you remember the scene in the movie The Matrix where the main character Neo wakes up from his incubated sleep covered in pink goo? It wasn’t the goo that was alarming (strangely enough) it was the fact that he woke up to a very different reality than the one he believed in. He thought that his decisions were his own, he thought that he was free to choose his beliefs and path in life, and he thought that he was free. The truth was that it was all an illusion, and his mind had been hacked by those who saw fit to use him. But hey… that’s just an interesting movie plot isn’t it? Nothing like that could ever happen in real life… right? Today you’re going to hear from neuroendocrinologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Robert Lustig about what he refers to as The Hacking of the American Mind. Now, this hacking isn’t reserved solely for Americans, it’s a phenomenon that’s shared amongst all of the developed nations in the world, and rapidly percolating its way into the undeveloped world as well. Dr. Lustig makes the case that many of the things we’ve accepted as normal are anything but. For example, you may think that you have the freewill to choose the food that you eat, the entertainment you consume, and the beliefs you uphold, but there’s a bigger story behind the scenes. And this story has a lot to do with battle between pleasure and happiness. Now, I used the word battle because, as you’ll discover today, these two things are not synonymous, and they most definitely lead to different outcomes in our lives. In many ways, this is the best time to be alive. Yet, with the changing landscape comes new problems and new challenges to overcome. The faster we become aware of them, the faster we can hop out of the matrix and live life doing all of the cool stuff that we were really born to do. So, with that I'd like to introduce you to the incredible Dr. Robert Lustig! In this episode you'll discover: What the "internet black hole" is. What vanishing calorie density means. Why Dr. Lustig decided to become a neuroendocrinologist. The crucial differences between pleasure and happiness. How addiction happens in the brain. The science behind why it's easier than ever to be unhappy today. Why the stress hormone cortisol is not the bad guy it's been made out to be. How different parts of the brain are influenced by stress. Why addiction and depression are connected. How the American mind is being hacked. The difference between marketing and propaganda (this is important!). The 4 C's for optimizing health and happiness. One key element that social media lacks compared to face to face interaction. Why cell phones are like having a slot machine in your pocket. The truth about exercise and weight loss. Items mentioned in this episode include: Onnit.com/Model

  • TMHS 239: Everyday Enlightenment And Getting Stronger Through Change - With Dan Millman

    · 00:57:03 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    How often do you read good fiction books? There was a stretch of maybe half a decade where I, although an avid reader, avoided reading any fiction because I believed that it was not productive. I read countless nutrition books, books on fitness, books on personal development, and more. They all contained a lot of facts and theories (which were great) but I was missing on something really special for my life. Luckily, a few years back after the poking and prodding or several people, I picked up a book called The Alchemist and it shined a bright light in a part of my mind that I had been neglecting. Little did I know that there was significant research touting the benefits of reading fiction. You can see marked changes in the brain, bolstered creativity, and so much more that the average person isn’t informed about. My rekindled love of fiction eventually led me to one of my favorite authors, Dan Millman, which is why I’m so excited to share this with you today! One of Dan’s books, that I read several years ago, still sits on my nightstand to this day (well, until I picked it up and brought it to the studio with me to record this). Thanks to Dan and other amazing authors, I’ve been able to foster new connections in my mind, paint more vibrant pictures than ever before, and I know it’s helped me to connect and relate with others so much more. If you’re not reading fiction books every now and then, I think this will be very inspirational in you doing so. Whether it’s physical books or audiobooks, storytelling (and story listening) is one of the things that makes us more human, and keeps our minds open to the possibility of everything. Dan is a remarkable person with a remarkable story. So, just click play, listen deeply, and soak it all in. Enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: The surprising benefits that reading fiction has on your brain. Why it’s important to be strong in multiple directions. What luck really is. What inspired Dan to write book that imbues fiction with autobiography. What it means to be a Peaceful Warrior. How paradox exists in all aspects of our lives. Why embracing the concept of change can quickly transform your life. Why comparing yourself to others can lead to suffering and how today’s social media explosion can add even more fuel to the fire. How self-acceptance can be a way to inner peace. Why everything you do matters. How giving up can still lead to success (as long as you do this one key thing!). What Dan does to stay vital and healthy at 71-years old (he’s still doing handstands and somersaults!). Items mentioned in this episode include: Onnit.com/Model

  • TMHS 237: Emotional Intelligence And Developing Altered Traits - With Dr. Daniel Goleman

    · 01:05:45 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    For many of us, we believe that our past = our future. We often carry a subconscious belief that no matter what we do, things will always be just more of the same. Even as we grow older, there’s a tendency to replay just slightly different versions of the same year over and over again. But, as Robin Sharma said, we want to catch ourselves in the act of this craziness and, “don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.” So, how do we actually break the mold and change the course and direction of our lives if we want to? How do we change our experience of life as a whole, and live a life of more health, happiness, and fulfillment? Well, as you’ll discover today, it all intrinsically happens when you alter what’s happening inside of you, not outside of you. When you learn how to alter your traits, you learn how to live an altered reality. You may have lived your life as a victim for some time. You might have felt weak and incapable in a life with so many burdens and obstacles. But by altering your traits, you can (from the inside out) live life with more strength, power, and perseverance than you could’ve ever dreamed possible. That’s because it was the old you who was doing the dreaming, and not the upgraded version of yourself who’s ready and waiting dormant inside each and every cell in your body. Now the questions is: how to we actually develop altered traits? For that, I’d like to introduce you to world renowned psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Daniel Goleman. In this episode you'll discover: The difference between genetic traits and personality traits. How our environment can change our traits. How meditation can influence heart health. What emotional intelligence really means. Which capacity reigns supreme in IQ versus EQ. Whether or not you're emotional intelligence can be changed. What it means to have cognitive control. What mirror neurons are and how they were accidentally discovered. How conventional psychology can fall short in helping people to be healthy and happy. Why meditation is like going to the gym for your brain. What it means to have wholesome traits of being. How having a sense of purpose influences your health and well-being. What mindfulness is. How multitasking affects our performance. The type of meditation that grows your level of compassion. The 3 kinds of empathy. How "olympic level meditators" have brains that are different from the average person. What an amygdala hijack is and why we need to better manage our amygdala today. How meditation influences brain aging. What some of the proven, valuable benefits of meditation are.

  • TMHS 236: UNDEFEATED: Strengthen Your Body, Mind, And Confidence - With Laila Ali

    · 00:54:14 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    I love the quote from Marianne Williamson that says, “With confidence, you can reach truly amazing heights; without confidence, even the simplest accomplishments are beyond your grasp.” How much does confidence really play into our lives? Well, if we take a step back we can see that confidence plays a major role in ALL of the decisions we make. Humans don’t act without an underlying sense of confidence. We have confidence in simple things like our ability to walk out our front door and successfully make it to our job. And we have confidence in bigger things like telling someone you love them for the first time, choosing the right college to attend, or going after the dream career we really want. How much confidence we carry will decide how strongly we approach all these things, or even if we decide do them at all! Here’s the thing… confidence is a learned behavior. Sure, there are outliers that have a genetically higher tolerance for risk, but for the most part, the most confidence people on the planet built that confidence by doing the work. Now, the question is, what does that work actually entail? How can we all build our confidence so that we are showing up better in our work, in our relationships, and in our health practices? To answer that, I decided to bring on one of the most confident people I know. She’s an undefeated world champion, she’s been successful in everything from boxing, to dancing, to hosting network television, to being a mom (which can be the most demanding thing on confidence of all!). She’s here today on The Model Health Show to share her story, and to share how she was able to build her confidence despite meeting adversity around many corners. Just click play, listen in, and enjoy this conversation with the one and only Laila Ali. In this episode you'll discover: How Laila first became interested in boxing (and it’s not what you think!). Why doing work that you love doesn’t really feel like work. The little known outside the ring battles that challenged Laila during her boxing career. Why it can be difficult to uncover what you’re passionate about when you enter a new chapter of your life. What inspired Laila to focus on creating a new career in health & wellness. Why confidence is so important, and how to build it! What Laila’s #1 fear is (yep, it’s the fear that a champion would have!). How valuable failure really is and how it improves our lives. Why Laila doesn’t follow any diet framework 100% (this is important!). Items mentioned in this episode include: Thrive Market Exclusive - 25% off your entire 1st order + free shipping!

  • TMHS 235: Epigenetics And The Biology Of Belief - With Dr. Bruce Lipton

    · 01:24:15 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    I remember watching a lecture from Dr. Bruce Lipton along with my wife and mother-in-law many years ago. After it was over, I saw the tears rolling down my mother-in-laws face as she was overwhelmed with emotion. You see, she had been helping people from all walks of life to better themselves mind, body, and spirit for decades. I’d never meet anyone who was as loved and admired as her before, and I was always intrigued by the love that came from everyone’s mouth when they spoke of her. She endured so much that most people never saw… and all that she went through enabled her to give at a level most people never experienced until they meet her. And, during that lecture from Dr. Lipton, she realized that what she believed all along was true… If you can help people to heal their minds and beliefs, you can help them to heal their bodies. The solution was always inside. That’s how she was able to help herself, and that’s how she was able to help so many others (myself included). Dr. Lipton has a tendency to transform people’s paradigms. As a cellular biologist and leading voice in the field of epigenetics, he’s seen firsthand how our thoughts, feelings, and environment can affect the destiny of the 50 trillion plus cells that make each one of us up. Moreover, he’s brought to light that our 50 trillion plus cells function very much like a community. Everyone has jobs, everyone is affected in one way or another by everyone else, and though we’ve been indoctrinated with the theory of “survival of the fittest”, legitimate health and success is really about cooperation. There’s no function that yourself, as a complete human being, can do that your individual cells cannot do as well. Your cells have reproductive functions, digestive functions, respiration functions, eliminatory functions, and the list goes on. Our cells really are sentient entities that are trying to work together for our good. And, as you’ll discover today, problems arise when the community is led astray by a governing body that’s running the show behind the scenes. It’s not your genes that control your destiny, and it’s not the things that are happening outside of you. It’s the biology of belief. So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to the one and only, Dr. Bruce Lipton! In this episode you'll discover: Which drink is clinically proven to help improve your sleep at night. What genetic determinism means. How conventional medicine can inherently train us to be powerless. How the environment can influence the destiny of a cell. What stem cells can teach us human potential. How your brain creates chemistry to match your feelings and beliefs. The important distinction between correlation and causation. What our genes actually do (this is important!). How the field of epigenetics is transforming health and medicine. The percentage of diseases that are controlled by genes (this will surprise you!). How our beliefs influence chronic diseases like cancer. What the placebo effect really is and how effective placebo treatments are. The fascinating way that certain cellular proteins function like television antennas. Where the actual “brain” of the cell is found (and it’s not where you might think!). How our perception impacts the functions of our cells. The different roles that our conscious and subconscious mind plays. How to switch out and upgrade our subconscious programs.

  • TMHS 234: Increase Your Sense Of Value And Stop Postponing Happiness - With Guest Lisa Nichols

    · 01:34:45 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    Scientist believe that approximately 50 percent of our happiness is genetically predetermined, while 10 percent is due to life circumstances, and 40 percent is the result of our own personal outlook. Whether or not you believe in genetic determinism, none of us can argue that our personal outlook (and in many ways our life circumstances) are within the power of our own hands to change. Why, then, is happiness at a deficit today? With so much connection and so much opportunity, why has happiness become the exception and not the rule? There’s a relatively new field of science focusing on positive psychology and the underpinnings of what creates happiness from us. But nothing compares to the education that we get from someone who’s cracked the code on happiness personally. It’s the stories of success that really speak to hearts, and it’s the real world tools that help us to put what we learn into action. Today you’re going to hear one of the most outstanding stories of how we can achieve happiness and success no matter what our circumstances have looked like. This person is an absolute superstar in so many different domains of personal development. She’s so good at it because she has been through it. I mean, really through it. And by braving her path, she’s figured out a thing or 20 that’s going to make an impact on your life for many years to come. Grateful, honored, and excited to share with you the incredible Lisa Nichols. Enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: Why being broke is easier than being broken. Why we need to welcome the things that makes us decide. What it means to have "gifts wrapped in sandpaper." How to stop postponing your happiness. Three "buckets" we can put our experiences in to bring us more fulfillment and success. How having nothing to hide can free you from a lot of stress (and why the truth is sexy!). How to increase our sense of value within ourselves (this is important!). The life-threatening challenges that led Lisa to make one of the toughest decisions of her life. Why shame can be one of the toughest burdens to carry. How Lisa brings her healthy lifestyle with her (and how she changed the culture for the people around her). Why it's important to serve from your or overflow. How good health spills over into other areas of your life in a positive way. Why it's a MUST to "live like you know it". What simple exercise we can do to help flush out the false things we believe about ourselves.

  • TMHS 233: If It Fits Your Macros & The Dangers Of Gluten-Free RELOADED

    · 00:57:15 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    You can gain just as much weight eating gluten-free cupcakes as you do eating gluten-filled cupcakes. We don’t want the latest marketing trend to be the demise of your health and fitness goals. Though many gluten-free efforts mean well, as with anything, marketers can really mess things up. They’ll take a good wholesome idea and you turn it into a tactic. Gluten-free options came into play to enable folks with gluten sensitivities to still enjoy some of their favorite comfort foods. Then more gluten-free options hit the market to meet the demand of people finding out the big potential downsides of eating gluten. The next thing you know there’s a gluten-free label slapped on everything from soups, to salads, to potato chips, and pizza. I think I even saw someone sipping a gluten-free bottle of water the other day. You’re about to get an in-depth look at the gluten-free phenomenon (and where our initial good intentions may have gotten off track). Plus, we’re covering some of the basics of the If It Fits Your Macros movement that’s hotter than men’s rompers right now. It’s said that many things come into our lives for a reason, a season, of for a lifetime. When it comes to diet and nutrition we have to be able to roll with the punches and identify which thing is which. Today is all about adding more tools to your superhero utility belt to make the best decisions for yourself and the people you care about. Just click play, take good notes, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: Why reviewing something multiple times can be so powerful. The benefits and potential downside of following IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros). The #1 component of any successful diet (this is important!). How the glycemic index of your meal affects your satiety hormones. Why relationships can go sour because of dieting drama. How micronutrient ratios play into satiation and long-term diet success. How a protein-centric breakfast vs. a carb-centric breakfast can affect your body weight. The interesting impact that removing gluten has on non-celiac test subjects. Why wheat is able to affect our brains so easily. What’s actually in wheat that causes many of the health problems seen today. The 6 big reasons why eating gluten-free can be dangerous. How quickly a fast food diet can negatively impact your gut microbiome. Why resistant starch is a critical part of optimal human nutrition.

  • TMHS 232: Brain Hacks For Faster Learning, Boosting Your Retention, And Eliminating Mental Fatigue - With Jim Kwik

    · 01:02:43 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    You’ve probably been hearing the news about WMDs from the media for many years. In fact, the media itself is often a WMD (Weapon of Mass Distraction). Today we are living in the time of the greatest distraction known to man. We’ve gained some prominence over acquiring food and water, most folks have a roof over their head, and meeting potential mates can be as easy as swiping right on your phone. But all of this newfound free time has opened up blackhole of time to kill, and now we have an infinite amount of information to pour into it. Sure dating today is a lot more like Wheel of Fortune than real life (I was always intrigued by those people who guessed just $1 for the price of a washing machine… why not $2? Why not 2???). The problem isn’t the apps and services, or the guessing that we do when we get on our devices. The problem is the sheer amount of data we all have to process each and every day of our lives now. Because of this, most of us have simply outsourced a lot of our thinking to our smartphones. Basic calculations in our head? Nope, I’ve got a calculator for that. Remember my best friend’s new phone number? Nope, we might text or talk all the time, but my phone will remember your number for me - and if I lose my phone, well, I guess I lose you too… it’s been a great ride!. Remembering appointments, managing money, etc. Our phones can do it all. And, in a strange way, our smartphones have now made us dumber. We may not have devolved to the point of our primitive ancestors, but have you seen how entertaining a fidget spinner is now? What reason can you give for it? Seriously! Well, if you’re reading this, fidget spinner fan or not, I know that you’re someone who’s interested in living an amazing life. You would love to be healthy, fit, and happy, and have awesome relationships too. These things require study. And with so much information to go through, how in the world can we ever make the strides we want before we make the transition to the big world wide web in the sky? The solution is simple, yet profound. In today’s world, where information is flying at you a thousand miles an minute, we must retrain our brains to learn in a new and powerful way. We all have an almost unlimited capability to learn, but we must learn how to unlock it. And for that, there’s only one expert I know who fits the bill. The man who companies like Virgin, Nike, Zappos, Fox Movie Studios, and Harvard University bring in to up-level their performance. The man who superstars in entertainment and industry like Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Jim Carrey, and Will Smith call on to help them learn faster and improve their memory. The one and only, Jim Kwik. In this episode you'll discover: The surprising effect that coffee has on your metabolism. Why the all-time favorite method of study called cramming will cause you to fall short. How digital distraction is zapping our brainpower. How our smart devices can actually make us dumber. How much of our memory is determined by genetics. How multitasking compares to being high and sleep deprived. Practical tips to help you avoid wasting too much time on social media when you need to get work done (this can help all of us!). The difference between recognition and recollection. What primacy and recency have to do with learning. How music can influence memory and learning What spaced repetition is and how to use it to boost your brainpower. Why your emotional state has an impact on memory. How your memory is deeply connected to your sense of smell. How important relevance is to memory and learning. The most effective way to take notes (and things you should stop doing immediately!). Items mentioned in this episode include: Onnit.com/Model

  • TMHS 231: Morning Routines That Supercharge Your Fat Loss, Health, And Productivity

    · 01:16:37 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    Why not start your body off each day in a fat-burning state? It’s as easy as drinking a glass of water… and here’s why. A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that drinking just 17 ounces of water can increase your metabolic rate by up to 30%. Wait, what?! So, this whole drinking water to lose fat thing actually works? In short, yes. But the real gold is in the details. The researchers in the study found that the total thermogenic response of drinking the water was a burn off of about 24 Calories. Just to be clear, this does not mean that chug-a-lugging gallons of water each day will have you burning massive amounts of calories. There’s an upper limit to this that easily gets bypassed by overdoing it on the aqua. Just like everything else in life, too much of even a good thing can quickly turn into a bad thing (unless it’s watching Game of Thrones… according to my wife, there’s no such thing as too much). Yet, the upper limit is definitely not the issue for the majority of people. The average person today does not give their body the real hydration it needs. Chronic dehydration goes hand-in-hand with chronic disease, and still it’s disappointedly overlooked in the medical profession. Most people are not giving their body the water-induced thermogenic benefits possible for them because they are missing out on small keys that open big doors of health and wellness. One, it’s water… not juice, not “vitamin water”, not gatorade, snakeade, or turtleade, not soda, not coffee… just WATER. Two, the actual quality of water matters. It matters in how it relates to your tissues. Specifically, the aquaporin channels that get the water from your belly into your cells. For more on that, make sure to check out the Hydration and Water Masterclass episode right after this one. Third, it’s how and when they drink the water. Follow up studies found that drinking 1 - 2 ounces of water had no significant thermogenic effect. Sippy sippin on the water bottle throughout the day just isn’t going to cut it. You need to get in a nice oil change a couple of times a day. Target 16 - 24 ounces to make the magic happen. And, as you’ll discover today, getting that first drink in to start your day has even more advantage, and might be a game-changing cornerstone of a morning routine that transforms your life. Today you’ll learn how a consistent morning routine literally changes your brain and helps to set you up for success. You’ll also learn about morning routines of some of the most successful people on the planet, and real, tangible proof that their success (and having an effective morning routine) is not an accident. Just click play, take good notes, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: How our daily actions determine our ultimate success. Why a morning routine provides you with a valuable sense of certainty. The science of momentum and how it inherently influences our lives. How a consistent morning routine affects our brains. The missing piece when people try to create new positive habits for themselves. Why many of us start our days with high stress. Why it's important to get hydrated as soon as your day begins. The daily ritual that Warren Buffett uses to ensure his continued success. How to train your mind to be more focused and resilient each day. How to give your body a metabolic advantage each day. Why the first food or beverage you have to start your day has a bigger impact on your performance. The best way to ensure you accomplish your biggest goal for the day.

  • TMHS 230: Body Checks, Financial Fitness, And How To Be Age-Proof - With Dr. Michael Roizen

    · 01:07:05 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    You’ve probably heard the statement before that “health is wealth”. But what does that mean exactly? I believe that it’s a statement summarizing the fact that when you have your health, you have possibility. With good health you have the clarity, the vitality, and the energy to submit your will in life, and do the things that make your life worth living. Without good health, everything in life can seem exponentially harder. And I know this from firsthand experience. It’s so much harder to have clarity and direction, there’s a feeling that something is holding you back, and mustering up the energy to do even small things is an enormous task. Health is wealth because it moves you more gracefully out of limited thinking. As our health improves, so does our energy and optimism. You start to feel richer (or, at least, more capable of becoming richer!). Now, what if we flipped the statement around? Wealth is health? Would it still hold up as a fact? Well, our guest today will not only show exactly how our financial health impacts our mental and physical health, but also share some ESSENTIAL strategies to build up your monetary muscles and ensure that you are fiscally fit. Dr. Michael Roizen is the author of eight NY Times bestselling books, he's the Chief Wellness Officer at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, and he's just an all-around incredible human being. I was so excited that he wrote his latest book tying in the deep connection between our health and our finances. With The Model Health Show we want to provide a model for being healthy and happy in every area of our lives. From fitness to finances, from food to family, all of it matters, and all of it makes us who we are. I’m honored to share Dr. Roizen’s wisdom with you here today. Just click play, take good notes, and put these things into action! In this episode you'll discover: Why having a longer lifespan can be a stressor financially. How long the average American born today should expect to live. What being born to splurge means. Some of the surprisingly similar ways that we approach our health and wealth. How healthcare spending by age-range has changed. Important physical metrics to track as you age. How to give yourself a fiscal physical. What 5 financial habits you need to be fiscally fit. How to create a protective financial shield around your family in the case of an emergency (this is a must!). Why your primal programming will eventually beat out your willpower.

  • TMHS 229: The Myth Of Fat-Burning Foods & Why Stress Makes Us Fat - With Dr. Jade Teta

    · 00:58:12 · The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

    You’ve seen the headlines… Ads telling you to just “Eat these 5 fat burning foods” and you’ll be able to achieve miraculous things. You’ll drop 10 pounds in two weeks, lose several inches off your waist, and even get your own reality show on VH1. Ok, I added the last one in, but you get the picture. If eating certain fat-burning foods could cure our body fat problems, then why are we not seeing an epidemic of fit people flooding the streets? If there were fat-burning foods that really did as advertised, they would be in such high demand that people would stand in lines around the block just like they do when the new iPhones come out (but this time it’ll be called “The iPhat”). The reality is, fat-burning foods are a bit of a misnomer. Food (the good, the bad, and the ugly) doesn’t make you burn or store less fat based on the food alone. There are many complex things going on behind the scenes that only a few people can can give us the real skinny on. One of those people is Dr. Jade Teta. And he’s here today to share how certain foods might be mistaken for fat-burning foods, how stress can add to your waistline no matter how good your diet is, plus a whole lot more. Just click play, listen in, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: Important tools to help injury proof your body. Why it's easy to overly focus on exercise and not so much on nutrition. Why there's no such thing as fat-burning foods. How certain foods can appear to have more metabolic benefits than others. What causes us to overeat specific foods. Which factors cause foods to impact people differently. The 4 types of foods that will ensure you're satisfied and nourished. How the properties of water can teach you to create the best nutrition plan for yourself. Why our metabolism is a stress barometer. The #1 stressor that affects our metabolism (this is huge!).
