All things Self-Optimisation! A deep dive Podcast, digging into practical ways to optimise your wellness, body and mind. Helping you #BeYourBest ~Steve Katasi.

    Plateauing, Suffering & Reinvention ~Freddie Bennett

    Plateauing, Suffering & Reinvention ~Freddie Bennett

    Freddie Bennett has a fascinating story of highs, all the trappings, tragic loss, devastating lows, and being utterly let down by the traditional "Self Help" industry. Funtime Freddie somehow escaped his downward spiral of drugs and alcohol to becoming a modern day Forest Gump with his endurance pursuits and has truly found his "second mountain".


    This is a discussion of plateauing on your first mountain - your first main chapter in life. A discussion of reinvention and the catalyst of change. A discussion of taking psychological value from pushing your body to unthinkable extremes. A discussion of finding your centre and your drive, when all the traditional signals don't move you.


    This episode is for everyone who is succeeding at some level in life, and yet life is without meaning and fulfilment. It's for those that know there is more to life and more to themselves than is currently being expressed, but they just can't put their finger on what is broken, missing or wrong.


    Plus, Freddie is captivating with his self depreciation, humour, Funtime Freddie antics and brutal honesty.

    Robb Wolf - Challenging the Globalist Food Agenda

    Robb Wolf - Challenging the Globalist Food Agenda

    Robb Wolf, the world-renowned nutrition and health expert - known for his bestselling books, top-ranked Podcast, and lectures - joins us to unpack the complexity of deciding what and how to feed the human population.


    Robb with his former career as a research biochemist, a curious mind, complex problem solving skills and strong debating capability, is wired to getting scientific and deep on big macro issues. He’s known for his direct approach and ability to distill and synthesise information to make the complicated stuff easier to understand.


    So, in this episode we take a run at discussing a complicated, thorny and ideologically charged topic - the globalist and technocratic propaganda around food production, food technology, and dietary choices.


    This discussion cannot be condensed into a social media soundbite - it needs searching questions, deep reflections, and a deep awareness of the multi-layered complex web of nutrition and ecology.

    Shattering Health Paradigms with Meat-Based Nutrition ~Judy Cho

    Shattering Health Paradigms with Meat-Based Nutrition ~Judy Cho

    Judy Cho is a nutritional therapy practitioner, nutritional author, and prolific producer of evidence-based nutritional content online. This intelligent women values family, bio-individual health, honest science, and a return to clean ancestrally-consistent nutritional choices. She's comfortable with complexity, but delivers compelling simplicity.


    The evidence, science, observations and her own personal experience has landed her on a meat-based diet, with her Instagram and Book focusing on what she calls a Carnivore Diet.


    Be prepared in this episode for your nutritional paradigms to be challenged, if not shattered!


    In this episode we unpack Judy's 12 year commitment to a plant-based way of eating, and the mental health and disordered eating issues she grappled with throughout - just thinking she was broken and weak. We dig into these issues, the therapy and medication approaches offered - all the while having our failing diet praised by doctors.


    We talk about Judy's leap into the unknown and scary - dropping the plants and going completely meat-based - i.e. a Carnivore Diet - and why after three years she is such a strong advocate for this way of eating. Being completely healed of her mental health and disordered eating battles, Judy helps us understand why scientifically  she is now thriving.


    We define what she was eating before, and what exactly is involved in her Carnivore diet. We explore diabetes, gut issues, sugar addiction, hormonal and neurotransmitter issues, brain energy dysfunction,  and why a carnivore diet can be a powerful tool to heal chronic deficiency and inflammation.


    We touch on traditional nutritional wisdom, the problems with modern plants and our consumption patterns, and the role of meat and plants in the human diet. And loads loads more....


     


    FYI: This episode makes up a comprehensive and diverse collection of great interviews where we challenge the modern nutritional norms with this idea more meat and less plants s likely a healthier outcome for humans. If after this you want to dig deeper, check out the other episodes in this series of nutrient dense optimal nutrition below.

    Ivor Cummins: The COVID struggle between Honesty vs Hysteria

    Ivor Cummins: The COVID struggle between Honesty vs Hysteria

    Ivor Cummins joins us for a part 3 in early Jan 2021 on the COVID response and narrative - this time with a stronger emphasis on the human struggle and emotions associated with being cognitively and societally isolated.


    This episode is more of a thinking and emphasising discussion, whilst still keeping a firm hand on the technical aspects that people need to hear. Philosophical, empathic, principles and emotional connection.


    This is a side of Ivor that people don't see as much. His passion for history, his warrior-like strength of character, and his capacity to emphasise with those that are struggling with being a lone wolf  in this fight of honesty vs hysteria.


    I suspect a lot of people will be able to relate to the struggles discussed here, and may well find strength and/or acceptance in being part of this much needed discussion.


    We chat about how Ivor is coping, where he finds his motivation and strength, how he manages his bias, and the painful reality for many with of being ostracised. Not just problems - we also touch on some sound advice on how to navigate this time.


    We talk about some country COVID specifics and do a big deep dive into the UK winter resurgence / second wave situation. Did Ivor get it wrong? What data and signals do we need to track? How would Ivor characterise what we are seeing?


    The UK Hospital Pressure. The UK Variant. The multitude of WHO pivots and why they are commitment to illogical positions such as Case Definition and Death Cert guidance? 


    Lastly but perhaps most importantly - what would a cunning Govt do to engineer out of the hysteria and claim victory in the next few months by gaming nature?


    It's THE covid conversation you'd love to have, if you could find someone on the same wavelength, a deep thinker, and who is intensely researched on the science and politics.

    Essential COVID Science ~Dr. Clare Craig (UK Pathologist)

    Essential COVID Science ~Dr. Clare Craig (UK Pathologist)

    Dr. Clare Craig, an experienced 20 year pathologist veteran within and outside of the NHS, joins us on 30th Dec to talk about a number of key COVID scientific matters that have been significantly been misrepresented in 2020.


    Expect to hear us cover Asymptomatic Transmission, Case Definition, SAGE, PCR Testing, Lateral Flow Testing, Excess Deaths, Hospital Pressures, the New Variant, False Positives, Herd Immunity, Immunity Metrics, Interesting Alternative Surveillance and much more. Full show notes listed below. 


    Clare has worked not only with the NHS, but also on the important 100,000 Genome Project and AI cancer diagnostics, and given her specialism is incredibly familiar with testing and diagnostics.


    With this experience and her advanced scientific faculties, she is able to interpret the science in ways most cannot. As such, whilst she recognises the viral pressure in 2020, she is highly sceptical with the approaches being taken nationally and globally. 


    This episode is a synthesis of the most important scientific questions AdapNation has received regarding the COVID UK response in recent weeks. We cover a great deal, and should provide essential context and scientific insight to the whole nation - no matter your beliefs and position regarding the govt actions. 


    It’s a long interview due to the breadth of topics, the need to answer them with sufficient depth, and this unique situation to get such an expert speak at length to our many scientific curiosities. As a top tip, try listening at 1.5x speed - it’s sounds good and condenses the listening time. 


    ESSENTIAL LISTENING for all. Please share to your friends and family to widen and expand our public understanding of the actual science regarding COVID.

    Dr. Malcolm Kendrick on COVID, Vaccine Trials & Junk Medical Science

    Dr. Malcolm Kendrick on COVID, Vaccine Trials & Junk Medical Science

    Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, long standing NHS GP, Hospital doctor, and Heart Disease Specialist brings his deep-thinking scientific and critical mind to the topic of COVID, Vaccines and the state of medical scientific research. 


    This was recorded on 8th December 2020 - what Matt Hancock pegged as V-Day (the first day COVID vaccines were administered globally). 


    Malcolm is a master in dissecting medical data and clinical trials, as well as identifying broader trends in health and medicine that seem to be resisted by the medical establishment. He’s authored some critical books on Cholesterol, Heart Disease and the process of doctoring data by pharmaceutical companies. 


    With a popular medical blog, a sought-after speaker, and an advocate for developing metabolic health with low carb real food diet formats, Dr Kendrick brings a well respected and well-known voice across the medical and nutritional communities - in part for his refreshing non-consensus thinking across some aspects of medicine. 


    Given Malcolm’s clinical experience with COVID Patients, his exposure to people with low cardio metabolic health, and his comfort in calling out issues with medicine and medical research, his voice desperately needs to be heard across the population.  


    We dig deep into the manipulation of clinical data for profit or policy gain - be it the COVID data, vaccine trial data, or the general approach to medical research funded by big pharmaceuticals. We get into the COVID Vaccine Clinical trials, the death of science in 2020, and the concerns ahead for science unless drastic action is taken. And lots more…

Lets get to the point ,

Calm and informative

Which is what we need right now

Conspiracy Clickbait

I originally wrote a positive review about these podcasts. However, they have become progressively more paranoid, narrow minded and niche. Steve has descended into a fantasy land where eating mainly meat is great for the environment, people that choose to be vegan are idiots that have been hoodwinked by big business and the Corona virus is a global, new world order conspiracy.
I’m sure a small number of people will love his contrary views but if you are here for scientifically thought through health news - avoid.

Great listen

Really enjoy your podcasts. The most recent one with Ivor Cummins was brilliant( as were the Dr Claire Craig and Dr Malcolm Kendrick). I thought your questions with Ivor were absolute genius as it resulted in a really productive and helpful conversation. I particularly liked it when you touched on the point where people might be on a different page from family members.In fact your questions are well thought out and always seem to get the best from your guests. It’s really refreshing and uplifting.
