    Episode #355: Going Keto Green with Dr. Anna Cabeca

    Episode #355: Going Keto Green with Dr. Anna Cabeca

    Today I am excited to dive deep in to KETO GREEN with Dr. Anna Cabeca!  I love to talk about stress and hormones - and correlate with fat loss, performance and longevity!  Especially for us female athletes!
    Learn more about Keto Green book here - available 5.5.20
    Who is Dr. Anna Cabeca- purpose, passion and mission Key hormones Signs and symptoms of low/high Test and not guess Let’s talk hormones and aging… how we can optimize fat loss, performance and longevity with balancing our hormones Explain the difference between the "conventional" keto diet and my Keto-Green diet designed just for women over 40. Conventional ketogenic diet is low in carbs, high in fats and moderate in protein - this diet burns fat very efficiently, but there are some side effects like fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, body aches, headaches, and mood swings. Decreased bone health Decreased lean muscle mass Increased pain and inflammation Increased risk of disease Disrupted hormonal cycles The foods you eat on a conventional keto diet are way too acidic — and that can eventually lead to even worse health consequences like... Talk about pH balance, optimal levels, and purpose – why alkaline vs. acidic?  Balance Dive into your 16-day eating plan inside Keto-Green 16 focuses on eating more ALKALINE (the opposite of ACIDIC) plant-based fats like avocado, nuts and olive oil. Benefits for women- and men Why 16 days and what do we do after… maintenance or is this a jumpstart to start new lifestyle habits?

    Episode #354: Dude Spelling and Primal Reboot with Debbie Potts

    Episode #354: Dude Spelling and Primal Reboot with Debbie Potts

    Today Debbie chats about low carb athlete transformational and health coaching stories with Dude Spellings.
    Dude is a lifelong health and wellness enthusiast and amateur athlete.  Before a brief cross country season in college, Dude was a 2x state champion in the mile, the two mile, and the mile relay. After his first marathon, Dude became interested in Ultramarathons and his endurance career peaked in 2006 when he ran 16 ultramarathons in one year.  Dude has also done some fairly extreme self-supported distance challenges, including two double crossings of the grand canyon, and a 143 mile 3 day adventure in the High Sierra in California.  He has also summited the 3rd highest peak in North America, and many smaller mountains.
    Like many people in today’s society, by mid-life Dude found himself drifting away from being active as the pursuits of career and family consumed so much time and attention.  By 2012, Dude was 50 lbs overweight with aches and pains all over, culminating in a back injury that left him debilitated on the floor, unable to move.
    The injured back was a wake up call that led Dude on a personal journey back to health and wellness. He lost 50 lbs, started running again, placed 3rd in the Speedgolf World Championships, and earned a Health Coaching certification from the Primal Health Coach Institute.
    Dude now coaches people how to regain their health after a lifetime of office work and modern lifestyle that keeps us sedentary, indoors, and eating processed foods.  Dude has made the journey himself and has tremendous passion for people who find it difficult to extract themselves from the modern traps that keep us unhealthy.  His mission is to find these people and guide them back to health and vitality.

Great Podcast - LCHF for the Whole Athlete and Person

Great Podcast that covers being Low Carb with a view to the whole athlest and person. I appreciate the balance when speaking on LCHF as often the subject is offered up as back and white but since we are all different univerdal principles apply but the application often differs. For a podcast on my listen to regularly.
