    Podcast Summary

    • Harnessing the Power of Epigenetics: Taking Control of Your GenesOur genes may play a role in our health, but by making positive lifestyle changes, we can regulate our gene expression and improve our well-being.

      Our genes may predispose us to certain health conditions, but they don't determine our destiny. The field of epigenetics reveals that our genes can be regulated and influenced by our lifestyle, environment, and thoughts. This means that we have the power to control our gene expression by making positive changes in our behavior. Factors such as the food we eat, the exercise we engage in, the stress we experience, and the toxins we're exposed to can all affect how our genes are regulated. Understanding and harnessing the power of epigenetics can help us improve our health and even potentially reverse the effects of aging. So, don't blame your genes for health issues in your family; focus on making healthy choices to positively impact your gene expression and overall well-being.

    • Taking Control of Our Genes through Lifestyle ChoicesOur genes may make us more susceptible to certain conditions, but by making positive lifestyle choices, we can regulate our gene expression and improve our overall health and well-being.

      Our genes do play a role in our health, but they are not the sole determinants. We have control over how our genes are expressed through our lifestyle choices. This is evident in Mark Hyman's example of his father who lived a long and healthy life despite having a genetic predisposition to heart disease. By living a different lifestyle - eating well, exercising, and practicing good mental health - he was able to regulate his gene expression and avoid the same fate as his siblings. It's important to recognize that while genetics may make us more susceptible to certain conditions, it doesn't mean we're destined to experience them. Our environment, including the food we eat, our physical activity, and our mindset, plays a significant role in our overall health and well-being. So, instead of feeling helpless, we can take charge of our health and make positive changes that can positively impact our genetic expression.

    • The Influence of Genetics and Lifestyle on Obesity and Metabolic HealthWhile genetics can contribute to obesity, lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise have a significant impact on overall health, emphasizing the importance of making healthy choices to improve well-being.

      Our genetics play a role in our predisposition to obesity and poor metabolic health, but they don't solely determine our fate. A comprehensive study found that even if you have all the genes associated with obesity, they would only account for about 22 pounds of weight gain. The dramatic increase in obesity rates cannot be solely attributed to genetics. Certain ethnic groups, like native Americans, Pacific Islanders, and people from the Middle East, may be at higher risk due to genetically predisposed carbohydrate intolerance. However, it is important to understand that we can still modify our health outcomes through lifestyle choices. By eating and exercising in harmony with our genetics, we can regain control and improve our overall health. Our genetics may load the gun, but the environment pulls the trigger.

    • The impact of diet and lifestyle changes on the health of the Pima Indians.Environmental factors and lifestyle choices have a significant influence on weight gain and overall health, highlighting the importance of making conscious dietary choices and maintaining an active lifestyle.

      The Pima Indians' health decline can be attributed to their shift in diet and lifestyle. Historically, they consumed a diet of unprocessed and whole foods, which kept them fit and healthy. However, the introduction of processed foods like white flour, white sugar, and trans fats by the white population drastically affected their health. The Pimas, who once had a metabolism perfectly adapted to their desert environment, now suffer from high rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. This highlights the importance of environment and lifestyle choices in weight gain and overall health. It also emphasizes that while genetics may play a role, it does not guarantee the development of these diseases.

    • Understanding the Genetics and Science Behind Food AddictionBy understanding our genetics and utilizing scientific methods, it is possible to overcome food and sugar addiction. Personalized approaches to diet and lifestyle are necessary for success in breaking these addictive cycles.

      Our genetics play a significant role in our response to food and pleasure. Some individuals may require more dopamine to feel pleasure, leading to potential overeating or addiction. Sugar, in particular, can be highly addictive as it stimulates dopamine receptors in the brain, similar to substances like cocaine or heroin. The science behind food addiction is alarming, but it is possible to reset our biology and overcome food and sugar addiction through a targeted approach. Willpower alone is not enough; it requires understanding our genetics and using scientific methods to personalize our diet and lifestyle. Additionally, even seemingly identical foods can have different effects on our body, with fast-acting carbohydrates leading to negative metabolic responses.

    • The Impact of Food on Our Brain's Addiction Control CenterEach person's response to diet is unique, so experimenting with our own biology is essential. Generally, a diet higher in good fats and lower in starchy carbs and sugar can lead to weight loss and improved metabolic markers.

      Our addiction control center in the brain, the nucleus accumbens, can be hijacked by certain foods, leading to overconsumption and weight gain. Research has shown that the constant availability of sugary and processed foods, combined with the pleasure derived from eating them, can create a cycle of addiction. However, it's important to note that not everyone responds to the same diet. We are all unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Understanding and experimenting with our own biology is key. Generally, a diet higher in good fats and lower in starchy carbohydrates and sugar seems to be beneficial for most individuals. This approach has shown positive results in weight loss, improved metabolic markers, and overall health.

    • Personalizing Our Diet for Optimal Health and Weight ManagementCustomizing our diet based on individual needs, paying attention to how we feel, and tracking our progress can help us achieve better health and weight management.

      Personalizing our diet is crucial for optimal health and weight management. Mark Hyman emphasizes the importance of reducing starchy and refined carbohydrates while focusing on whole foods. He suggests adjusting our diet based on individual needs, whether that means increasing or decreasing fat or carbohydrate intake. By paying attention to how we feel and regularly monitoring our scale and lab tests, we can determine what works best for us. Hyman also highlights the significance of tracking our progress and recommends utilizing platforms like Function Health to track labs and data at an affordable price. Additionally, he emphasizes that what may work for someone else may not work for us, emphasizing the need to personalize our approach to nutrition. Finally, Hyman provides seven simple strategies for achieving a well-regulated metabolic state and losing weight, including eating real food, non-starchy veggies, quality protein, and healthy fats.

    • Managing diet, stress, and sleep for optimal health and weightMaking dietary and lifestyle changes, supplementing with key nutrients, managing stress, and prioritizing sleep and exercise are crucial for overall health and weight management.

      Making dietary and lifestyle changes can greatly impact your overall health and weight. Cutting down on carbohydrates and increasing healthy fats like avocados and nuts can support your metabolism. However, it's important to avoid combining unhealthy carbs with fats, as this can be detrimental. Processed sugars, refined carbohydrates, and alcohol should also be limited or avoided completely. Supplementing with key nutrients like multivitamins, vitamin D, fish oil, magnesium, and probiotics can help balance blood sugar levels and address nutritional deficiencies. Managing stress through practices like yoga, meditation, and deep breathing is crucial, as stress can negatively affect weight and overall well-being. Prioritizing quality sleep and engaging in regular exercise are additional important factors for maintaining good health.

    • The power of exercise for overall health.Exercise is essential for overall health, regardless of genetics. It plays a crucial role in building muscle, improving cardiovascular fitness, and regulating insulin levels. Incorporating the right type of exercise into your lifestyle can positively influence gene expression and improve overall health. So, focus on lifestyle changes rather than worrying about your genes.

      Exercise is crucial for overall health, regardless of genetics. It is not enough to simply exercise and expect your weight to change if you have a bad diet. However, exercise plays a critical role in building muscle, improving cardiovascular fitness, and regulating insulin levels. Even a 30-minute walk after dinner can have a significant impact on blood sugar regulation and reducing disease risk. To achieve optimal health, it is important to engage in various forms of exercise, such as high-intensity interval training and strength training. By incorporating the right kind of exercise into your lifestyle, along with proper nutrition, sleep, and positive thoughts, you can positively influence gene expression and improve overall health. So, stop worrying about your genes and start focusing on the power of lifestyle changes.

    Sugar - Is it Meant for Human Consumption? An Interview with Dr. Jody Stanislaw

    Sugar - Is it Meant for Human Consumption? An Interview with Dr. Jody Stanislaw

    Dr. Jody Stanislaw is a licensed Naturopath (N.D.) with Type 1 Diabetes. 

    She has devoted much of her life and her medical practice to finding out - through research and experience - effective ways to heal the ravages of sugar, and how to return blood sugar to its healthy, balanced state. 

    Because the ravages of chronic high blood sugar include, and are not limited to: 

    - heart disease
    - kidney failure
    - strokes
    - gangrene 
    - blindness 
    - limb amputation 
    - violent behavior

    .... and more. But even before that, way before that, unstable blood sugar can cause many seemingly silent yet debilitating symptoms -such as chronic tiredness, lack of motivation, and mood issues. 

    In her TEDx talk - which has received over half a million views in 8 months - Dr. Jody explains how chronic sugar consumption affects the body over time - even if we don't feel its effects. 

    She explains the actual process as it occurs in the pancreas, and how sugar affects the finite store of beta cells that we come into this world with - and can't live without. 

    She shares some stunning facts and statistics - such as the fact that chronic sugar consumption creates as much damage to the brain as as abuse done in childhood. And the fact that, if we keep eating sugar at this rate, within a few decades, 1 in 3 people will have Type 2 diabetes. 

    And, perhaps most stunningly, that so many of the maladies affecting us today can be eliminated simply by eating less sugar. 

    We talk about these and other facts on our show today. But we also delve into Dr. Jody's own history with binge eating, and talk about the piece of advice her aunt Mary (a therapist) gave her when her struggles were at their worst. 

    Jody reminds us that, because of the highly addictive property of sugar, for many the proposition of cutting it out entirely in one go is impossible. She discusses how she works with clients in this position, and also shares an approach she uses for working with the emotions that tend to accompany binge eating, sugar addiction and food addiction.  

    This is a gentle, compassionate approach she introduces even before making any changes to the diet. 

    I love Dr. Jody's holistic approach to the large-looming dilemma of food addiction and sugar addiction worldwide, and hope you will too.

    The Hidden Addiction We Face with Dr Garth Davis MD

    We are all recovering from something. Despite popular belief, alcohol and drugs aren’t the only addictions many people struggle with. Addiction can come in many different forms and sometimes that can be in the form of unhealthy eating. Our guest this week is dedicated to helping people learn the right foods and behaviors that can lead to a healthy and happy life. 

    This week, we are talking with Garth Davis, MD, as we discuss obesity in America and how we can recover from unhealthy eating.

    Garth Davis, MD, is the medical director of the Davis Clinic at the Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, and starred on the hit TLC show Big Medicine. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a Fellow of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Dr. Davis also competes in marathons and Ironman triathlons and is the author of The Experts Guide to Weight Loss Surgery and Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession With Meat Is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It.
