    How The Food You Eat Boosts Your Mood & Mental Health (and the Connection Your Gut Health Plays) with Dr. Uma Naidoo

    How The Food You Eat Boosts Your Mood & Mental Health (and the Connection Your Gut Health Plays) with Dr. Uma Naidoo

    I am delighted to have Dr. Uma Naidoo joining me on the podcast today! Dr. Naidoo is an awarded board-certified psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School, professional chef, nutrition specialist, and author of the recently released This is Your Brain on Food: An Indispensable Guide to the Surprising Foods that Fight Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and More. She was featured in the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, Harvard Health Press, Goop, and many others. Dr. Naidoo has a special interest in the impact of food on mood and other mental health conditions. 
    There were several strong influences in Dr. Naidoo’s early life. She grew up in a loving, nurturing home with a large extended South Asian family. Rather than going to pre-school, she decided to stay at home with her maternal grandmother, who was a wonderful cook. Dr. Naidoo used to help her grandmother pick fresh vegetables from the garden and prepare meals, and her grandparents taught her meditation and yoga. Her mother was a medical student, and she had many aunts and uncles who were physicians, so there was a lot of talk about science and nutrition in their home. 
    In this episode, Dr. Naidoo talks about food and lifestyle choices that can boost your mood and improve mental and emotional health. Tune in today to hear our fascinating conversation! 
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

    Dr. Naidoo’s background and her journey from medical school to becoming a chef and a nutrition-focused psychiatrist.

    What caused Dr. Naidoo to have an “aha” moment.

    The connection between gut health and mental health.

    Foods that tend to create the most problems with mental health.

    Foods that can positively impact brain health.

    Are We Eating From A Toxic Food System? Tackling Issues within the American Food Industry with Robyn O'Brien

    Are We Eating From A Toxic Food System? Tackling Issues within the American Food Industry with Robyn O'Brien

    I am honored to be interviewing Robyn O’Brien today! Robyn is a globally recognized voice in the food industry and has been called “food’s Erin Brockovich” by The New York Times. Her TEDx talk (based on her book, The Unhealthy Truth) exposes the shortcomings of our food system and has been viewed millions of times. It has influenced policy, legislation, and product formulation. For the last fifteen years, Robyn has advised CEOs and executives at multinational CPG companies, startups, and farm organizations. Robyn is the co-founder and managing director at rePlant Capital, a financial services firm ambitiously determined to reverse climate change through the deployment of a series of proprietary funds focused on U.S. farmers and their transition to regenerative and organic agriculture.
    It can be hard for those who want to make real change in our broken systems to initiate change or know where to begin. Robyn O’Brien doesn’t just make noise about problems. She builds solutions and encourages her audiences to participate by identifying their skills and experiences to leverage them as entry points for systems change. In Robyn’s story, capital is an entry point for catalytic change. If biodiversity is resiliency on the farm, Robyn deeply believes that diversity is resiliency in governance. 
    In this episode, Robyn explains how rePlant Capital is pioneering climate solutions by tackling soil health through a model of agricultural financing that no one else is providing. She also speaks to the importance of diverse governance and leadership in addressing these existential food, health, and climate issues.  
    I am very grateful to Robyn for writing her book because it has profoundly impacted the trajectory of everything I am doing right now! Stay tuned for more!
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

    Robyn shares her background.

    Robyn's motivation for investigating how our food gets produced.

    The additives in our food that drive allergies and food sensitivities.

    Some of the shocking facts that Robyn discovered about food allergies and American children.

    How Robyn realized that she had to use love and gratitude rather than fear when sharing her knowledge.

    The issues with the American food industry.

    Robyn talks about rePlant Capital.

    The difference between the conventional farm-debt industry and regenerative farming practices.

    Why we should never be afraid of starting small.

    The differences between various types of soil composition.

    Why water security is as critical as food security and national security.

    The importance of diversity.

    What you need to be concerned about regarding GMOs.

    Why we are seeing an escalated rate of allergies in our children.

    The importance of transparency in the food industry.

    How Was Jimmy Moore Able To Make The Biggest Transformation? The Pivots That Helped Him Reach His Goals with Jimmy Moore

    How Was Jimmy Moore Able To Make The Biggest Transformation? The Pivots That Helped Him Reach His Goals with Jimmy Moore

    I am delighted to welcome the notorious Jimmy Moore as my guest for today’s show! Jimmy is a bestselling author, a writer, and the host of the Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb (LLVLC) Show. 
    Jimmy has had an impact on the trajectory of my learning journey. I initially connected with him around intermittent fasting when I read a book he co-authored with Dr. Jason Fung called The Complete Guide to Fasting. I later read his books, Keto Clarity and Cholesterol Clarity, both of which I highly recommend! 
    Jimmy has been around for quite some time. He was very productive with creating podcasts at a time when there were very few people doing that in the keto space. In this episode, Jimmy and I have a frank and transparent conversation about childhood influences, how he pivoted from being an English Poly/Psy major to learning about the ketogenic lifestyle and the Atkins Diet, and later becoming an author. Stay tuned to hear our thought-provoking discussion!
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

    How trauma molded Jimmy into who he is today.

    Jimmy shares his education and career journey.

    What prompted Jimmy to start learning about nutrition?

    The truth about LDL and some of the more common misconceptions about cholesterol.

    Some of the common keto mistakes people tend to make.

    Why some of the narratives on social media are changing.

    The benefits of using a CGM.
