    Unlock the Keto Code (Without Actually Going Keto) and Turbo-Charge Your Metabolism - with Dr Steven Gundry

    Unlock the Keto Code (Without Actually Going Keto) and Turbo-Charge Your Metabolism - with Dr Steven Gundry

    Dr Steven R. Gundry is an American physician and low-carbohydrate diet author, most famous for his book 'Unlocking the Keto Code'. He is also the founder of Gundry MD, dedicated to dramatically improving human health, happiness, and longevity through his unique vision of diet and nutrition.

    Dr Steven joins Angela to talk about mitochondrial uncoupling, specifically how you can eat certain foods designed to turbo-charge your metabolism, effectively wasting calories, enabling you to support energy and vitality while supporting fat loss at the same time.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    There must be a mechanism by where mitochondria protect themselves. The best example of this is to see it as a kind of pressure cooker, where if the pressure reaches a certain point it explodes. This is prevented by a pressure valve, which is the same method used by mitochondria.
    Ketones are often misrepresented as some kind of miracle fuel for the body that is desired by every part of physical form. But this is not true.
    Free fatty acids go to the liver, and the liver converts them to ketones, which are very small acids that can get through the blood and be used as a fuel. This explains why, if you're hungry, you make ketones.
    The polyphenol compounds were designed by plants to protect their mitochondria from sun damage. Polyphenols that we eat are very poorly absorbed, but we're beginning to see that they are the most important prebiotic for our gut bacteria.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'It's virtually impossible to get kids or adults to avoid carbohydrates for any length of time'

    'Ketones are touted as some kind of miraculous fuel'

    'These are consequences of that thermonuclear reaction - that coupling'

    'Gut bacteria, in turn, make these compounds much more bio-available'

    Bitesize Biohack: Protein, Collagen, Muscle & Metabolic Health with Dr Gabrielle Lyon

    Bitesize Biohack: Protein, Collagen, Muscle & Metabolic Health with Dr Gabrielle Lyon

    Angela revisits her interview with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon to tell you how much protein you need to gain muscle and how much protein is needed to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. She explains whether you can do this on a vegan or vegetarian diet. Then, goes on to explain the role collagen plays and how it affects your tissue.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    A healthy gut biome can make enough essential amino acids.
    You need to strategize your eating philosophy to fit in with the demands your body is under e.g. if you want to get lean again after a pregnancy you are going to have to eat differently than when you were pregnant.
    Have a structured training plan that hits each body part twice a week. You can train fast, but you do need to refuel too.
    Collagen does not do a lot for muscle, but it is still very beneficial in other ways. But you have to get the dose right. How to do this is explained in the podcast.

    Cannabis, CBD and Resilience - with Dr Dani Gordon

    Cannabis, CBD and Resilience - with Dr Dani Gordon

    Dr Dani Gordon is a world-leading expert in CBD and medical cannabis, and joins Angela for a thought-provoking discussion about their benefits, when is the right time to use more stimulating forms of breath work, how to optimise your own wellbeing practices, as well as her authored works on the subject of CBD and resilience.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Resilience is the metric which shows us how well we bounce back from challenge. For people who are well in the first place, resilience can still be used to "bounce forward" - a building block for even more resilience.
    Hemp CBD does not work as a sleep aid. In fact it can have the opposite effect, making people far more alert and awake.
    Like anything else, if a substance is abused then it can hurt resilience instead of helping to build it. The key is to be aware and not let it overtake you.
    There is evidence that legalising cannabis does not lead to an increase in misuse by the younger generation. This is something of a myth.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'It's about health and wellbeing resilience'

    'We want to make people who are well already, bounce forward'

    'It can wake up some of the parts of the brain involved with keeping us awake and alert'

    'You actually need more stress to build resilience'

    Bitesize Biohacks: Glucose, Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Flexibility and Your Microbiome with Dr Will Bulsiewicz

    Bitesize Biohacks: Glucose, Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Flexibility and Your Microbiome with Dr Will Bulsiewicz

    Angela revisits her interview with Dr Will Bulsiewicz, and his vital messaging regarding glucose levels, and why keeping a keen eye on flattening the curve is important, as well as making sure that we have good insulin sensitivity.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    The mechanisms of gaining free fat are through obesity, and also through our dietary intake.
    The microbiome is related the way that we process our food, and is a part of establishing what our blood sugar is after a meal, and also what our blood fat is.
    Even though we are genetically similar to family members, and live in the same environment, we sometimes share only around 35% of the same microbes.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'The microbiome is centrally involved in this equation'

    'Many of the studies come from research that we have done'

    'There's no one size fits all when it comes to nutrition'

    The Science of Manifestation - How to Use Neuroplasticity and Universal Laws to Create the Life You Want - with Dr Tara Swart

    The Science of Manifestation - How to Use Neuroplasticity and Universal Laws to Create the Life You Want - with Dr Tara Swart

    Often we are searching for a way to connect the mind to the body in order to realise our full potential, and no one knows more about how to achieve this, than this week’s guest, Dr Tara Swart, the Chief Science Officer at Heights, pioneers of the Heights Smart Supplement, designed to boost brainpower and allow you take control of your health.

    Dr Swart discusses the female brain and the unique challenges faced each day, as well as how we can optimise for a healthy brain, manage longevity and manifest your best life.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Men’s brains are also affected by the arrival of babies. Their oxytocin levels increase due to bonding, and testosterone levels decrease simultaneously, and even more so if the baby sleeps in the bedroom alongside the parents.
    Your brain can grow and change at any age, any stage and any mindset. This scientific truth is neuroplasticity, and is the foundational element behind manifestation.
    Women are proven to get more dementia than men, and while it is hard to prove why, schools of thought believe that it may be due to the diminishing sleep levels that occur during child-rearing.
    Negative impacts from the perimenopause period in life can occur, but they aren’t necessarily a prerequisite. We should not assume that the effects are mandatory and must never tell ourselves that we can expect negative degradation when it arrives. It’s not always the case.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘The science that underlies manifestation is neuroplasticity’

    ‘Women do get dementia more than men’

    ‘Breaking everything down into bite-sized chunks is a very important part of building in micro-habits that make your brain work better’

    ‘Positive expectancy is definitely the thing. It also helps to build resilience’

    Bitesize Biohacks: Yoga, Mindfulness and The Female Brain with Dr Tara Swart

    Bitesize Biohacks: Yoga, Mindfulness and The Female Brain with Dr Tara Swart

    In a very special preview of a soon-to-come conversation with Dr Tara Swart, she explains about the effects of sleep, the incredible potential of the female brain, and why we should think of yoga as a mindfulness practice.

    Hear the full episode this Friday, 20th January 2023!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Periods can be associated with lots of emotional dis-regulation which has to be learned to overcome during a crucial time in life.
    One night's bad sleep can lead to IQ being lowered by 10% each day. Several nights' sleep missed can lead to the mental equivalent of being drunk.
    Women get more dementia than men, and this has been tentatively attributed to less sleep during the child-rearing phase. It's more likely connected to the fact that women live longer.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'There are lots more ups and downs than there are for men'

    'It hit me how much there is going on for the female brain'

    'You really need to be in bed for seven to nine hours'

When it comes to women’s health Angela is by far the most impactful podcast I have found to date. Her knowledge of female biology is paralleled only by her dedication to helping women live their best, most optimized lives. Through her insights as well as those of the incredible guests she brings on the show, I am seeing dramatic improvements in my performance, my recovery, body composition and even my mindset. This is a must listen for any woman who wants to look and FEEL her best, inside and out.
