    Byron Katie: Second Guessing Your Thoughts, Avoiding the Uncomfortable, and Creating Your Own Reality

    Do you ever question your own thoughts?


    In this episode of the Complete Human podcast, we discuss what it means to be free, how someone can know if they are suffering from their thoughts, what is the cause of all suffering, why is it our natural instinct to avoid uncomfortable feelings, and if self-questioning can ever be taken too far.


    Bryon also walks us through what the four questions that can change your life. She shows you exactly how to identify and question any thought that would keep you from that freedom.


    Byron Katie is a well known author, speaker and the founder of The Work. The Work is used to help individuals question their stressful or uncomfortable thoughts.

    How Tracking Your Continuous Glucose Levels is the Key to Understanding Your Health and Nutrition with Dr. Taylor Sittler from Levels

    How Tracking Your Continuous Glucose Levels is the Key to Understanding Your Health and Nutrition with Dr. Taylor Sittler from Levels

    Do you know what your continuous glucose levels are? Most people don’t, so don’t feel bad! But, did you know keeping track of your glucose levels can reveal many important things about your daily diet and habits? It is possible and that’s why we are going to dive into in this episode of the Complete Human podcast.


    How we do this is through were a Continuous Glucose Monitor. While many people think of these monitors for those with diabetes exclusively, they have become more mainstream and are now used by those who are serious about understanding what’s going on within their body and how what they are eating and doing daily is effecting their overall health. 


    One of the things we've been talking about for years is the value of diagnostic testing. While there's no singular test out there to really quantify true metabolic health, there are certain things that we can look at time and time again as kind of precursors to metabolic dysfunction, mitochondrial dysfunction, and insulin resistance. One of those is a continuous glucose monitor.


    We have both been wearing our levels, which is a Continuous Glucose Monitor that attaches to an app. By wearing this, we've been able to actually not only track our glucose on a consistent basis, but also look at the data as it pertains to certain food activity.


    So in this particular episode, we have the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Taylor Sittler, who's the head of research and development over at Levels and we really get into the weeds on metabolic health, what is contributing to metabolic dysfunction, and how we can overcome and avoid these issues through measuring and understanding our glucose levels.
    Levels is currently running a closed beta program with a waitlist of over 160,000 people. If you'd like to skip that line and participate in their early access program today, click here:  levels.link/COMPLETEHUMAN

    Regenerative Farming: How Cows Can Save the World and Your Health

    Regenerative Farming: How Cows Can Save the World and Your Health

    What the heck is regenerative farming? Why the heck should you prioritize regenerative farmed meat? These are the two questions we discuss in-depth in this episode of the Complete Human podcast.
    Personally, we are fed up with people believing cows are bad for your health and the earth. We are fed up with people believing vegan is the way. And, we are fed up by people being under-educated when it comes to the meat they are/aren’t eating. 
    In this episode, we not only give you a clear explanation of what regenerative agriculture is, but we also debunk counting myths and explain why regenerative farming is the key to saving humans and the planet. 
    What we discuss:
    7:00 - Why regenerative farming is returning to the way Mother Earth intended 
    11:00 - Water scarcity 
    13:00 - Sequestering carbon 
    15:00 - Nutrient density
    18:00 - Is Grass-fed/Pasture Raised the same?
    19:30 - Why there is no space on this earth for conventional meat
    23:00 - How do you shop for regenerative meat?

    Are Plants Toxic? A Healthy Debate on The Carnivore Diet w/ Dr. Paul Saladino

    Are Plants Toxic? A Healthy Debate on The Carnivore Diet w/ Dr. Paul Saladino

    Are we supposed to be vegans or carnivores? Dr. Paul Saladino has a very unique answer to that question.
    Since the dawn of time, the food chain has been divided into two very distinct groups – carnivores and herbivores. The herbivores ate the plants and the carnivores ate the herbivores. We were really able to see this distinction in the dinosaurs over 65 million years ago. The dinosaurs died out, eventually paving the way for man, the pesky little hybrid of a creature who consumed both plant and animal. The study of man’s diet through the ages is a topic of much debate in scientific circles. Did we flourish as meat eaters or are we meant to be herbivores. Outside of the scientific debate, there is a cultural clash between those who oppose eating animals, and those that believe that our greatest path to health lies in consuming meat.
    In this episode of The Complete Human Podcast, Janna and Evan discuss the Carnivore Diet with Dr. Paul Saladino, author of the Carnivore Code. Dr. Saladino discusses man’s origins as hunters, and how eating animals made us human. He discusses in great detail plant toxins of all types, where they are found, and how to avoid these toxins.
    Dr. Saladino brings a very unique position to the conversation of dietary supplements and why some may be doing more harm than good.

    Girl Scout Cookies: Do They Do More Harm Than Good?

    Girl Scout Cookies: Do They Do More Harm Than Good?

    Let’s discuss the most beloved cookie in the world: The Girl Scouts Cookie. Many of us just buy this cookie because a little girl is too cute to say no to. But, have you ever stopped to think about what Girl Scout cookies are doing to the environment, the effects they have on your health, and where that money is actually going?

    Evan and Janna didn’t record this episode to exclusively dump on Girl Scouts, rather they did so so to open up a dialogue on a topic that is rarely discussed. With anything we are buying, it’s imperative to our health and planet to question its effects.

    What we discuss:
    How Girl Scout cookies affect our metabolic health
    The ingredients of Girl Scout cookies
    Why do we want to avoid palm oil for a better planet
    Is selling Girl Scout cookies actually promoting entrepreneurship?
    How much money are Girl Scouts making on cookies each year?
    Where does the money go to?
    What are some better alternatives for the Girl Scouts to sell?

    Galahad Clark: What Shoes are Doing to Your Feet + Why Barefoot is Better

    Galahad Clark: What Shoes are Doing to Your Feet + Why Barefoot is Better

    Did you know that 70% of our brain’s information about movement comes from our feet? So, it follows that healthy feet come with a healthy mind. 
    But a lot of what we do every day kills our feet, such as strutting in tight-fitting cushioned modern shoes!
    In this episode of Complete Human, Vivobarefoot Founder Galahad Clark joins Janna and Evan to discuss everything you need to know about foot health and the evolutionary benefits of barefoot walking (and running). Galahad also details how modern shoes, which he blatantly calls “foot coffins,” affect muscle development in kids and disrupt the brain-foot sensory feedback. We dig deep into the fascinating science behind Vivobarefoot’s technology, too! And then we end the episode telling why reconnecting your body with nature and your soul starts with letting your soles touch the ground.
    Galahad Clark is a seventh-generation descendent of the Clark family dynasty and founder of Vivobarefoot. This London-based footwear company features ultra-thin puncture resistance soles that let your feet do the natural thing. 
    What we discuss:
    3:50 - On continuing his family's shoemaking legacy
    7:00 - Why he almost went bankrupt & how Vivobarefoot came to life
    11:00 - Why modern shoes are considered "foot coffins"
    14:20 - The brain-foot connection + how cushioned shoes could lead to degenerative diseases
    24:00 - The sad truth about the shoe industry & his quest to making a difference
    32:00 - How tight-fitting shoes affect posture & children's natural movement 
    38:00 - What your squat form reveals about your foot health
    42:00 - All about Vivobarefoot

Dan Your Real Estate Man ,

Dense useable information

I like this podcast because it delivers a dense amount of usable information on health and fitness. Topics covered do not follow the typical trends and will give you moments of “mind-blown”. Knowing the science in a more easy to understand and comedic format makes this podcast a routine listen.

CrossFit Mesa ,

Dynamic duo

Evan’s breath of knowledge and Janna’s ability to ask the questions the bring the every day person in to the conversation with their guests is perfect.

Together the two of them make the show entertaining, educational and easy to take action on the things that will make a difference for my over health. I especially appreciate Evan’s commitment to add at least one dad joke per episode!

somethinchicclt ,

I’ve learned so much!

Janna and Evan make a great team…so not surprised that their podcast is incredibly educational and leaves me wanting to learn more! I also love how they are not afraid to challenge their guests which leads to a deeper conversation and not just another podcast. My personal favorite was their interview with Lisa Wimberger.
