EP 157 - Does Insulin Make You Gain Weight? Causes and management for diabetics
Insulin therapy, a treatment for diabetes, can cause unwanted weight gain.
This episode will cover the link between diabetes, insulin, and gaining weight, as well as how to manage and minimize weight gain.
Insulin is a natural hormone produced in the pancreas. When we eat, our pancreas releases insulin to help our bodies produce energy from sugars. Insulin is a vital part of metabolism. Without it, your body would cease to function.
Weight gain is a common symptom of diabetes.
Compared with people who do not have diabetes, young adults with type-1 diabetes have a higher risk of becoming overweight or obese. To wit, according to World Health Organization estimates (2003), 90 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are either overweight or obese.
Establishing healthy lifestyle habits can help people:
reduce excess body weight,
manage diabetes symptoms, and even
reverse pre-diabetes and insulin resistance.

EP 156 - Choosing Healthy Fats | Heart Health, Brain Health, and Fat Loss
In today’s episode we’ll cover everything you need to know about dietary fats, including how to make healthier choices without sacrificing taste.
By understanding the difference between good and bad fats and how to include more healthy fat in our diets, we can improve our mood, boost our energy and well-being, and even lose unwanted body fat, easier.
Monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats are known as the “good fats” because they are good for your heart, your cholesterol, and your overall health. These fats can help to:
Lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Lower bad LDL cholesterol levels, while increasing good HDL.
Prevent abnormal heart rhythms.
Lower triglycerides associated with heart disease and fight inflammation.
Lower blood pressure.
Prevent atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries).
Food sources include:
Olives and olive oil
Raw Nuts and nuts oils: almonds, walnuts, macadamia, pecans
Raw Seeds and seed oils: Sunflower, sesame, pumpkin seeds, Flaxseed
Fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines) and fish oil
Soybean and safflower oil
Artificial trans fats are considered dangerous. This is the worst type of fat since it not only raises bad LDL cholesterol but also lowers good HDL levels. Artificial trans fats can also create inflammation, are linked to heart disease, stroke, and other chronic conditions and contribute to insulin resistance. Aim to eliminate it from your diet.
Primary sources of Trans fat include:
Commercially-baked pastries, cookies, doughnuts, muffins, cakes, pizza dough
Packaged snack (crackers, microwave popcorn, chips)
margarine and vegetable shortening
Deep Fried foods (French fries, fried chicken, chicken nuggets, breaded fish)
Anything containing hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, even if it claims to be “trans fat-free”
Saturated fat. While not as harmful as trans fat, saturated fat can raise bad LDL cholesterol and too much can negatively impact heart health, so it’s best limited in our diets as well.
Primary sources of Saturated fat include:
Red meat (beef, lamb, pork)
Whole-fat dairy products (milk, cream, cheese)
Tropical oils such as coconut and palm oil

EP 153 - A Tale of Two Gyms | Choosing the right gym for you
Those of you who have moved, after years living in one city, will feel my pain. Moving requires change in key relationships, like finding a new barber (ouch), baby sitters, and so many other new spaces.
I’ve recently been “gym shopping,” which for me is similar to finding a new church to call home.
Here's a glimpse into my experience, what I chose and what I learned.

EP 152 - Addressing ADHD with Dr. Ericka Goodwin
Dealing with ADHD can be incredibly frustrating. Both on the part of the parent, as well as the child suffering from the impairment.
My guest in this episode is Dr. Ericka Goodwin, board certified psychiatrist and Eating For Abs student. I asked Ericka to join me to discuss her incredible children's book, "How Amari Learned to Love School Again," as well to help me understand the impact of ADHD on children and the family as a whole.
I shared my own experience, and got a great understanding of the variety of treatments for ADHD, the difference between the types of medications, and the many treatment options which include therapy, medications, and school (and at home) accommodations.
This is a great episode to share with your family.
