[PODCAST] #344: Solving the Health and Fitness Puzzle (with Kevin Geary)

Play

My second collaboration with Kevin Geary, integrative health coach and founder of RebootedBody.com. Our discussion is built around two emails I received from listeners, each facing different challenges in their quests for health and fitness.

WARM-UP:
-The origins of RebootYourKids.com

EMAILS DISCUSSED:

#1: I was listening to your podcast about procrastination and you mentioned your diet. You said that you ate a lot of garbage and came up with excuses on why it is you can't or don't eat well. This resonates with me so much! I was wondering if you had any advice on getting the ball rolling with dietary changes. As someone who is an incredibly picky eater and doesn't know the first thing about what the human body needs, the task of eating well seems overwhelming.

#2: I was introduced to the Low Carb/Bulletproof Diet via your show. I believe you were chatting with either Wes Bertrand or Richard and Tony about the diet - and how following it had given you more energy and an overall improvement in health. Without any further study or research, I decided to give the diet a try - that being a diet consisting of: no wheat, pasta, grains; very few fruits; lots of grass-fed beef & butter, organic chicken, vegetables, coconut oil, and saturated fats.

One year and six months later, my health was in egregious condition. I developed a thyroid condition that resulted in bulging eyes; I developed frontal bossing (enlarged, protruding forehead); I developed TMJ and tongue thrust, which has resulted in slower speech. I also was suffering from both physical and mental lassitude - terrible brain fog, terrible fitness. What I listed above is just what is coming to mind at the moment; there is more, but I think that will do for now.

My question to you is this: Assuming that you are still following the diet, how do you feel? Have you noticed any changes in your appearance: bulging eyes, frontal bossing, tooth decay, etc? Would you say that you are in better health since adhering to the Low Carb lifestyle?

I'd really like to hear from you, and I hope I'm not being too snoopy. There is so much more I'd like to say, but I don't want to flood you with a tomb of haphazard thoughts.

  1. Hey Brett, great show. I presently practice a cyclic ketogenic lifestyle and found the research of John Kiefer to be insightful, but somewhat incendiary to the hardcore Paleo-diet advocates.Of course, I am not classifying you as one of those people.

    This video link is mainly focused on women’s health and fitness but the presentation does touch on human nutrition and fitness as a whole.

    The sleep stuff was so depressing. I NEVER feel like I have enough energy, no matter how well I sleep. (Although some exercise in the morning does seem to help a lot.) But the reality is that by the time my first child started sleeping all night, I was pregnant with the second. And now it’s been 6 years since I’ve regularly gotten enough sleep.

    All good information, though. 🙂 Thank you.

    Superb episode!! Really enjoyed that one.

    Call it Synchronicity, cuz I just finished reading this short e-book (50pgs) called “Becoming Bulletproof”
    And it was strictly on how movement is important, gaining mobility, and a few tricks to use to get started and keep at it.

    Here’s the amazon link for the book ( i think you can Google it and find a free PDF)

    Thanks

  4. This was a great show and I learned a lot. I would like to know more about why sleep is so important.
