Croissant Diet, Theory of Obesity and Raising Low PUFA Pigs
In this episode we explore some new theories of obesity and the croissant diet with Brad Marshall. His background is in molecular biology, food history, a stint at the culinary institute and butchering which gives him a unique perspective and the ability to decipher complex scientific concepts about how our bodies process fats and store energy. Brad posits the reason we get fat is mitochondrial dysfunction from too much polyunsaturated fat in the diet. He has been testing this theory on himself and others in the biohacking community.

I have Brad Marshall, who, as you heard in his bio, is a very much a Renaissance man. So welcome, Brad. How are you doing? Brad Marshall: Thank you. Thanks for having me. Cheryl McColgan: Yeah. So you have been making the rounds lately because you have this diet. You sort of created the somewhat controversial, but I love the name of it, 'cause I've always been a big fan of French food, and that is The Croissant Diet. So maybe you could tell us a little bit about your background, how you came to start experimenting with this stuff and how you got interested in The Croissant Diet part. The Croissant Diet and French Paradox Brad Marshall: Sure. And so my... Well, my background dietarily is I've been keto a lot of my life, but I also went to the French Culinary Institute back in the late '90s, I guess, in New York City. And so, as I've been a keto adult, and knowing that that works and seeing that it helps people, I've had to struggle knowing that at the same time, the traditional French diet where they're combining starch with butter, seems to be keeping people thin as well. And I'm a food historian, and I love looking at the dietary history of people in New York State who were mostly dairy farmers back in the day. And looking at people in New York City, even into the '50s and '60s, when you look at those old photos, you can see that everybody is... Almost everyone is universally slim. And not even that they're not fat, but they're really skinny. And you can look at menus of the day and food trends and USDA data, and everyone was combining starch and butter and meat and potatoes, and they stay lean. And then something changed and people started to get fat. And so my thought is that, what changed?

Brad Marshall: And so I started reading the blog Hyperlipid. I gained weight, I was working, I wasn't... I was working a lot, running a farm and a butcher shop, and I wasn't paying very close attention to my diet 'cause I was overwhelmed and I was eating restaurant food and whatever, so I gained weight. And I wanted to turn it around, so I went back and started reading Hyperlipid again. I also have a genetic molecular biology degree, really, from Cornell so I understand a lot of the science of it. And so I was reading his blog,

Whole Family Diet Change for Weight Loss and Autism
In this episode, Katie and I chat about how she transitioned her entire family to a lower carb lifestyle. She shares about the difference in her own life as well as how cutting out sugar affected her son who has autism, keto and autism just go together. Katie talks about how there is keto substitute for almost anything, whether cheat days are worth it and how she's made keto her lifestyle. We actually recorded this episode almost a year ago so some of the comments might be slightly dated but all of the content is still completely relevant. We both agree sticking to keto for several months in the beginning is critical to success and allows you more freedom later. She also has some great thoughts on when/how/whether you should cheat or go off plan. Katie has some great tips as well about introducing kids to reading labels and how to get your kids on board with a different lifestyle. Our best tip is to lead by example and let kids see the choices you're making without being super dogmatic. Just plant the seed!

Cheryl McColgan: Hi, everyone. Welcome back to The Heal Nourish Grow Podcast. Today, I am joined by Dr. Meg Mill, and I'm really excited to share her knowledge with you because she focuses a lot on headaches, which is something I know a lot of people in this audience struggle with. So, welcome, Dr. Mill. Can you just give us some of your background, how you... Before you get to how you got into this work, you were originally, I believe, a pharmacist, so maybe you could kinda tell us about your progression of moving into functional medicine. Dr. Meg Mill: Yes, absolutely, thank you so much for having me here. I spent almost 20 years actually practicing as a clinical pharmacist before I made my way into functional medicine, and I kind of have two tracks of how I ended up in this space, and one was a personal journey and the other one was just from experience with patients. So I just... Over the years of working with people, we're seeing people, I would say, survive rather than thrive, I would see people coming in with more and more medications and just really still not feeling their best. And although there's a really wonderful purpose for medications, it's not the answer for everything. And when you're not looking into some of the root causes, people were getting more and more sick while kind of piling up and getting side effects and other things from medications. Dr. Meg Mill: And in the same vein, I actually had spent years with IBS and had been jumping around to different gastroenterologists and getting to them like, "Oh, you're fine, but... " And I did not feel fine by any means. And so I was looking for other answers and just found through that journey and my own personal experience, was able to find function medicine and heal myself and then go on to change career paths and go back and get certifications to practice. And I do see... It's amazing the difference you can see for people when you're looking into the root cause, so many things can be fixed and healed that way. Cheryl McColgan: Yeah, that is a real frustration in western medicine, and it's certainly something that in the... I'm very involved in the keto low-carb space and biohacking stuff, and it's certainly a conversation that we have quite often in the community about, why don't we address the root cause more often? So as you moved away from pharmacy into functional medicine, can you describe a little bit the training there, how it differs maybe from our traditional medical track and how it more focuses on this root cause? What sort of things did you learn about in order to help people discover that?

Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices
Jack Bobo is a food futurist and the Author of Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices. In this episode we talk about the psychology of eating, some of the factors and habits that drive food choices and issues regarding our food system and sustainability.

Cheryl McColgan Hey everyone, welcome back to The Heal Nourish Grow podcast. Today, I am joined by Jack Bobo, he is the author of  "Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices." I'm really excited to have him here. As you heard on his bio, he has such an interesting background with food and policy and psychology. So you know I'm interested in that because that's my background as well. So anyway, welcome Jack, if can you tell us a little bit about your book and how you got into all this, that would be wonderful? Obesity Epidemic in America Jack Bobo Great, well, thank you, thank you for having me on this show. Really excited and delighted to be here. Well, the book really came out of this question that I kept asking myself, how can it be at a moment in time when we know more about health and nutrition than we ever have in the history of the planet, we've never been more obese? As I'm sure you talk about all the time, 42 percent of Americans are obese, 75 percent are overweight or obese, the number is going to 50 percent if we don't change that trajectory. And so, the book was sort of my effort to look into how have things changed over time, looking at the psychology of food choices, how our brains and environment are driving the choices we have, and really what would it take to reshape our and redesign our food environment to make healthy choices the easy choice? Because I certainly don't feel like we should be struggling as hard as we are to be healthy. I mean, our grandparents, they were cooking with lard for goodness sake, [chuckle] and yet none of them were obese, so, clearly lots of things have changed. And how do we get back to that point where we can enjoy the food we eat, not feel so stressed about it? Cheryl McColgan And when you were doing your deep dive into that for the book, what was it that you kind of found, Was there a predominant answer, did you find it to be a number of co-factors, what has surprised you the most after looking into this a little bit more? Jack Bobo Well, I think as all of these things, it's complicated, and it's not one thing, it's a thousand things. And often when we're looking at new diets and other things, we're looking for something to fix the problem. And it isn't one thing, you know, it's each decision we make, how things are packaged, the food and the environment we're living in, but let me just give you one example. If we went back to the 1960s, there's a guy named David Wallerstein, who's sort of the guy who invented super sized portions. He was working for a movie theater chain, and his job was to get people to eat more popcorn, you know, things at the concession stand. And he tried everything, two for one deals and he just couldn't get people to go back for a second bag,

Hey everyone, welcome back to the Heal Nourish Grow Podcast. Today we're going to discuss how to get started on keto. We're getting close to the beginning of a new year and what happens every single year is people set New Year's resolutions. Quite often, that revolves around getting healthier in some way, or losing weight, or changing habits. So I wanted to give this to you as a resource so if you're not doing keto or low carb yet, you'll hae some more information on why it might be something to try, some of the benefits, some of the things that it can do for you. If you already are low carb or keto, you might start getting questions at the beginning of the new year from your friend that might want to lose a couple of pounds or change some of their habits. They might ask you how they should get started and quite often, that is a difficult position to be in because you can tell them sort of how you do it or how you think that they should approach it, but sometimes it's just easier to hear these things from somebody else. So I thought I would just give you this resource so that you have it and share it with anybody that's interested in starting to live a lower carb lifestyle. This will give them a good idea of how to get started on keto. How to Get into Ketosis Quickly So I've talked about this subject multiple times in the past and getting started on keto really comes down to  wo ways to approach it. There is the "Rip It Off Like a Band-Aid" and go all in approach. With this method you start really restricting your carbohydrates very strongly from the very beginning. This is how to get into ketosis quickly. Although I might argue there is no real reason to get into ketosis quickly, this is one way to do it. Then there's a more gentle approach and that is really the approach that I recommend. Getting into ketosis with this approach means going lower carb in a slow manner. It gives your body more time to adjust. It gives you time to adjust your mindset and it gives you time to make some changes in your household. For example, planning what types of foods you'll have in the house. Those are the two approaches to getting into ketosis. Either one you choose, you'll get into ketosis eventually and the difference is really only a couple of days to a week. The end game is to go lower carb.  Most people would be so much better off if they just got rid of as many processed foods as possible and started eating more whole foods. If that still included up to 100 carbs a day, that would still be a much,

Meal Prep Tips for Weight Loss and Maintenance
Rich Howard first started meal prepping in high school when he had special dietary needs as a wrestler. He continued his keto meal prep habit into college and has opted for keto meal prep or high protein versions at times depending on his goals. As a busy father and grad student, he continues to meal prep to save tie and money while eating healthy.

I'm really excited to share my guest with you, today. His name is Rich, and he runs a site all about meal prep, and it's really interesting how he got into that. I thought it would be great to chat with him going into the new year, because I know a lot of you are gonna be working on your diets and wondering what you can do to stay on track. So Rich is going to help us out with that today. So welcome, and tell everybody a little bit about sort of your background and how you got to be interested in meal prepping. Rich Howard: Yeah, thank you, Cheryl, it's great to be here. Yeah, my name is Rich. I have been meal prepping for as long as I've been cooking. I grew up in Austin, Texas, and I wrestled in high school, that was my high school sport. One of the weird things about wrestling is that you have to have weight classes, and so as a high school kid, I was having to diet and eat my own food, and so really, it just started out of necessity. My mom didn't wanna cook separate food for me every night, and I don't blame her at all. And so, if the family is having spaghetti, then I would get on the grill and make chicken and rice. Meal Prep Saves Time and Money, Less Cooking Rich Howard: And after doing that several times, I realized quickly, I don't like cooking all that much at the time, and I don't have time, with studying and sports and practices and having to bring food to school that was on track with the diet, so I just started making all my own food. And I had some particular kind of food dietary needs at the time that I couldn't really even... I couldn't even buy food from restaurants really or from grocery stores. So for wrestling, I'd have my water weight down, and so I basically had a no-sodium diet. And if you've ever cooked or tracked sodium, anything you eat from anywhere is really high. And so out of necessity, I just started meal prepping. Rich Howard: I would cook a bunch of food on Sunday nights for the school week as a Sophomore and Junior in high school, and that's really where I got started. And then, really, I just kind of continued since then. In college, I would... It is the same kind of deal, I wanted to save money and wanted to eat healthy. And so, I would cook a bunch of food on the weekend and eat it in between class and during the week and for dinner, just to save money and time for studying and all that. And then... It's become one of those weird hobbies/life hacks, that has helped me even since college. So for the last five and a half years, I've been in grad school and working as a pastor full-time and have my own busi...

Benefits of Fasting
The benefits of fasting for health are numerous. In this episode, I give the the background for why I'm so committed to extended fasting for autophagy and health. Basically the short version is I have so much cancer in my family and my own previous history with multiple surgeries for tumors (you can read more about that here if you're interested). This is why I'm so committed to this health protocol in an effort to stay as disease free as possible. Extended fasting is a very powerful practice that has multiple benefits. After I tell you more about my history and background with fasting, I read my in depth article about fasting. It goes into more detail about the benefits of fasting for health. It's a longer one so I figured it might be more convenient for you to be able to listen to it in audio form. The intro for this episode is below. Watch on YouTube.

I'm your host, Cheryl McColgan. And if you haven't been around my content before, this will be a new topic for you, but if you have been around for a while, this is something that you've heard me talk about many, many times in the past, and that is the topic of fasting. So before we get into the rest of the show today, I just wanna share with you some of my personal reasons why for fasting, so that you know where I'm coming from, and that you know why I'm so passionate about it, because it's a topic that I quite often speak about at keto summits and in other education. So I just wanna share with you my background. Why it's so important to me.

Benefits of Fasting for Health So about six, seven years ago or probably seven years ago now, my dad was diagnosed with blood cancer, and actually prior to that he had had thyroid cancer, and my whole family has a whole bunch of cancer. Both sides of the family. Breast cancer, colon cancer all kinds of things. Probably some of this is due to living in the South and maybe not having the best health habits, but it certainly, there is a genetic component to cancer, and so I started digging around and doing some research, and this is kind of a lot how I got to come to the whole keto and low carb space as well. But while I was digging around, I ended up finding some information, I was probably typing into Google cancer and cancer prevention, and I ended up finding an article about the 2016 Nobel Prize for autophagy, and I pulled this up so that I could say his name properly because I could never quite get it, but it's Yoshinori Ohsumi. And so in 2016, he won the Nobel Prize for autophagy. Well, what autophagy is, what they discovered is it's your body's cellular clean up process, and basically you can think of autophagy on a continuum, it's kind of happening all the time in your body, but when it's happening most strongly is when you're not consuming any food, so aka fasting. And that's really how I was introduced to the idea of autophagy. Meanwhile,

Managing Type One Diabetes With Keto
In this episode Courtney and I discuss living with type one diabetes. She is extremely active and involved in bodybuilding, which has made managing her type one diabetes more difficult. However, through a keto diet she is more easily able to manage her type one diabetes and keep her A1C down. Keto and diabetes just go together! More and more evidence is coming out that using a low carb diet to manage diabetes works amazingly well and quickly. She gives some of her best advice for starting keto whether you have diabetes or not. Watch the interview on YouTube.

I'm joined here today by Courtney. Courtney is a wonderful lady that I have been following for a while on Instagram, and she utilizes the keto lifestyle to help manage her type one diabetes. Welcome Courtney. Courtney Lillich Hi. Thank you. Cheryl McColgan Thanks for joining me. If you can maybe just start out by... obviously, if people are listening to this on the audio version, I read your bio, and so they already know a little bit about you. But can you say in your own words a little bit about your background and how you came to start eating in this way. Diabetes and Keto: Improving A1C in Type One Diabetic Courtney Lillich So, I'm type one diabetic and I've been insulin dependent since I was three, now I'm 38, so it's been quite a while. And because I'm very active, I do bodybuilding and boxing, all kinds of workouts and exercises, that sounds great like, "Oh, you're gonna be so healthy." But it's hard to manage the blood sugar levels, they go up and down, up and down, and so my doctor, my endocrinologist has always had a hard time with me in particular, my A1C levels haven't been great. And then I also have a coach for my body building competitions. And I did competitions probably for four or five years, and then my body just was like, "Okay, I'm done, I'm done with it for a while." So I still... I kept... I still have the coach, and my body just wasn't responding to the usual diet and workout regimen that typical bodybuilders use, like the carbs, and the diabetes I think it's part of that too. So he just said, probably in 2019, I hadn't even really heard of keto before. I've heard of it, but in my head it was like, "Oh, all you do is eat almonds and butter and fat, just bad stuff like that." And I was like, "I would never wanna do that ever." Courtney Lillich But then he mentioned it and he said, "Hey, you've heard of keto, let's... We should just try it out." And I read more about it, and it's not a... Like I said, it's not a typical bodybuilders diet, so I said, "Why not, let's just try it, and then I realized it was good for blood sugars and I just... It was really hard to switch over, but I'm super focused and dedicated if I'm trying to do something. I was on it for a year and it helped my blood sugar levels, and I was able to lose some weight on it, and yeah, that's how I fell into it. Cheryl McColgan That's awesome. Well, so just to give some people background. Maybe some people listening to this aren't as... I think everybody at this point is pretty familiar with Type two diabetes, which is an adult-onset process, usually brought on by poor metabolic health and sometimes as a result of years of abusing your body with a lot of processed foods and a lot ...

Breaking Sugar Addiction By Getting to the Root Cause with Danielle Daem
Danielle realized she had sugar addiction through an awakening she had several years ago when she went through a detox in the middle of the Columbian jungle. As she withdrew from sugar, she experienced a period of feeling very ill. She continued on without sugar and after a few weeks realized she no longer had cravings like she did before and sugar no longer had the same hold over her. Her path to breaking sugar addiction had begun. Through this experience, she became passionate about nourishing her body properly as a means to avoid the chronic diseases so prevalent in her family. She spent the next two years figuring out her version of a sugar-free, whole foods diet. She now works as a nutrition coach to help others break their sugar addiction and find greater health. Her personal motivation never included weight loss but rather finding health and preventing future disease through a better diet. One of the great tools she discusses is asking yourself "why" at least three more times when you find your surface-level reason for wanting to lose weight or change your diet. This process allows people to get closer to the root of their food addiction. Breaking sugar addiction may require asking these why questions repeatedly over time.

Strategies to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
In this episode, we'll talk about the temptation to eat in a different way during the holidays. Whether you decide to eat foods you normally do or not during the holiday season, it's important to go into the holidays with a plan that matches your goals. We'll address holiday weight gain and some strategies to combat it. Of course, getting sugar and carb cravings under control by changing the way you eat will also make weight maintenance much easier!

Hope you're having a wonderful day. I am Cheryl, as you know, if you've been listening to the podcast for a while, and if you haven't, welcome to the Heal Nourish Grow podcast where we talk about all things health, wellness, low-carb nutrition and things to help you improve your life at least a little bit every single day. And what I wanted to chat with you about today is how not to gain weight during the holidays. [chuckle] So every year, around this time, we start to indulge a little bit more, myself included, and that can be a time with family and friends that's so wonderful. And so many of us, with what has been going on in the world in the last almost two years now, is a time to really celebrate and enjoy ourselves, and quite often in many cultures, at least in the American culture for sure, that revolves around food and around alcohol and around cookies and indulgences in all sorts of things that you might not eat on a regular basis, especially if you're trying to live a healthier lifestyle. So Because as you know, my background and training is in psychology and addiction studies. I wanted to share with you some ideas and some strategies about how to... I'm gonna put this in air quotes, for those of you that aren't watching the video. So if you're listening on audio, this is air quotes, "stay on track during the holidays". I kind of don't like that phrase because it insinuates that you're not kind of mindfully making decisions all the time. And that is definitely part of what we're gonna talk about today. So I think you can approach the holidays in two ways. So number one, if you're in maintenance mode, you can stay the course and stay at maintenance calories, stay with your same activities during the holidays as much as possible, and maybe plan for over-indulgences, and we'll talk a little bit about that in a short amount of time here. And the other strategy is, if you are in weight loss mode for the holidays, that's fine too, but it's gonna require a little bit more dedication and planning than usual. Strategies to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain So there's a few ways that we can approach that as well. So first of all, you know how we say, "What's your goal?" So determine what your goal is during the holidays: Do you want to, number one, maintain your weight or avoid holiday weight gain, do you want, two, continue trying to lose weight, if that's your goal; or number three, do you not mind if you gain,

Cheryl McColgan: Hi everyone. Today, I'm sitting here with Todd White, and I am so excited to speak to him because I have heard him interviewed multiple times in the past, and I have absolutely adored his product for years. You guys know, you've heard me talk about Dry Farm Wines 1000 times. I've done the experiment with drinking it and staying in ketosis, which is on my YouTube channel, so now I get to chat with the man that made this all happen. So welcome, Todd. Todd White: Thanks, it's great to be here. I'm looking forward to having a talk today about everything, low carb, keto, fasting, and sugar free wine. Cheryl McColgan: Yeah, I'm super excited. We were chatting a little bit before we actually started recording and I was excited to learn that you are as big a proponent of fasting as I am. But for now, why don't you maybe introduce yourself a little bit, tell people a little bit about your health background, how you came to this lifestyle and wanting to really lower your chemical load in your body, which is part of the way that Dry Farm Wines came to be. So if you can just talk a little bit about your background and how you got to where you are now. Old School Biohacking Todd White: Yeah, so my journey started more than 20 years ago. Before biohacking was a term, I was a biohacker, as you were one who was experimenting with dieting. So biohacking is a confusing term, some people don't know what it means. I define it as the art and science of how we structure our behavior to have a positive impact or outcome on our neurological and biological outcome.

Healing Autoimmunity By Adding More Healthy Real Food Fats with Jen Fisch
I am talking all things keto with Jen Fisch, creative director, blogger, mom, and author. You may know Jen from the online space as Keto in The City, where she shares easy and low carb recipes on Instagram, her blog, as well as in her books. Tune in to hear about Jen’s health journey and how her keto lifestyle began. Jen was diagnosed with two different autoimmune diseases that were fighting her body from the inside out. She then began searching for an anti-inflammatory diet. What started off with Atkins and low sugar and ended up being keto. Once she started eating better quality foods, she realized her sleep improved. It’s really trial and error with keto, and not all "keto snacks" are good snacks which we talk a lot about today. Finding what ingredients and whole foods work best for your own body is what's important. From sugars to bone broth and packaged keto foods, Jen shares her history with what worked for her body and what didn’t. Again, everyone is so different! We also talk about transition foods, hidden ingredients, and preferred sweeteners, as well as plants. All of these topics and more in this episode. Did you enjoy today’s show?

Cheryl McColgan: Welcome, everyone. I'm here with Jen of Keto in The City. Thanks for joining us today, Jen. Jen Fisch: Yeah, super excited, great to talk to you. Cheryl McColgan: Me too. So part of the show, and since you're one of the very first interviews on the Heal Nourish Grow podcast, one of my goals is to really just share with people practical tips and knowledge, and you've been now living the keto lifestyle for quite a while and have experimented with many styles of eating over the years, similar to me. So if you could just maybe tell everybody first, how you got into keto, and a little bit about your history and background with that. Battling Autoimmune Diseases Jen Fisch: Yeah, sure. So yeah, it has been a long story of trying to figure out what works. But basically, over 20 years ago, I came down with two autoimmune disorders within six months of each other. So psoriasis first and then psoriatic arthritis six months later. And so I struggled with that for many years. Eventually, I went to a doctor who was an MD, but who was actually an acupuncture doctor, and he was the first one that recommended I cut sugar out of my diet. Before that, I had never even thought about the connection between the food that I was eating and how I was feeling, and none of my other doctors had ever mentioned it. So that is what turned the light on for me. That was about 15 years ago and I started on Atkins from there because that was popular at the time. I remember going straight from that appointment to a bookstore, just sat on the ground of the bookstore,

Jimmy shares his personal weight loss and health journey with us, which is so inspiring! He lost almost 200 pounds by starting with Atkins, later going keto and to his latest way of eating which is more of a keto/carnivore approach. You will learn a lot as we go over topics of fasting and how it is so important when trying to reduce inflammation in the body. We also talk about biohacking therapies like ice baths, red light therapy and the importance of looking inward to heal the body from past traumas. Rest is also so important.

Could you share with people a little bit about that and kind of how you got to where you are now? Eating the Standard American and Low-Fat Diets Jimmy Moore:  Oh yeah.  I was eating a low-fat diet before finding low carbs. And I think that we all do that. We all kind of default, when you need to get healthy, when you need to lose weight, what you did, you cut back, right? We all heard that message our whole lives. And if that works for you, you're doing that and over and over and over again. I think what draws people back to it is the reinforcement, when you do that and then you do lose some weight. You feel somewhat better. I would argue because you get rid of the junk in you feel a little better. For me, I had tried all those things and I had been successful up down, up, down, up, down, up down with low-fat diets. And in fact, in 1999, you mentioned family health problems. My brother had a series of heart attacks and one week, so four years older than me, my brother, Kevin. In 1999, he had a heart attack, he was in the hospital for some routine checkup and had a  heart attack while it was in the hospital. Thank God, because it probably would have died had he not been there. Then later, he'd have another heart attack, on and on and on. He died at the age of 41, but when he had the heart attacks and again, that was a wake-up call for me and I lost a bunch of weight. And at the end of about nine months,

Cheryl McColgan:  Welcome. So Gigi, I've read your bio obviously, but can you just share with people in your own words, how you came to this way of eating and some of a little bit of your past? I think you have some really interesting, things that you have done leading up to some health issues that you had, where you had to change the way that you ate. Gigi Ashworth: Uh, do you have like 15 hours? I don't think people wanna listen that long, but anyway. So when I was around 14 years old, I actually was at a boarding school for snowboarding. I used to competitively snowboard back in the day. Whoa. And now I'm like, oh, don't get me here in the mountains beause it's too cold! Anyways, so when I was doing that, I was exerting a lot of energy, and I started to really focus on how I was feeling and I wasn't feeling good. It's really funny how when you start to do a lot of physical activity, you take note of how your body feels, even at the young age of 14. I thought, there's something off, there's something not right here. How Gigi Discovered the Keto Diet I did physical activity before I was on the track team and all that kind of stuff. But I guess I just didn't really care, pay attention or I was like to you into wanting be popular. So when I was in boarding school, I was complaining to my mom about it, who actually has been doing the keto diet for the last 30 years or so. Yeah. She's been doing it for a long time as a doctor and she always wanted to be a nutritionist, but her father was like, no, you're gonna be an OBGYN. So that's what she wound up doing. Anyways, I was complaining to my mom and she sent me book that didn't have a book jacket or anything on it. And she was like, hey, just read this book.

And second of all, she's really focused on making sure that your hormones stay in balance while you're on keto, which can be a particular problem for us, ladies. So welcome, Dr. Stephanie Estima. Could you just tell us some of your background, how you found the low carb diet, how you got into it and your interest in this subject?  Keto for Brain Health Dr. Stephanie Estima: So I have been, you know, for most of my career, very interested in brain health and brain metabolism, and the ketogenic diet was something that I came across maybe for, well maybe five or six years ago now in terms of some of the benefits that it can have for cognition, for mood, for sleep. I started implementing it in my practice. That was when I still when I had a brick-and-mortar practice and it had a profound result in my patients. So it's something that I've always been very, very cognizant towards is this idea of how can we change some of the things in our life, whether that's nutrition or movement or supplementation or stress reduction as a way to level our brain health in some way. The ketogenic diet, I'm sure we'll talk about it today and I'm sure you've talked about this on the podcast before. It's one of those protocols that is very, very efficient for reducing inflammation in the brain, for helping with clarity of thought, helping with sleep and all the things that are important when we're thinking about long-term brain aging and brain health.  Cheryl McColgan: I'm so glad that you brought up that subject because it's also part of my background.

We bought this house and this is actually a gun safe, which we have no use for. So over the pandemic, it became the perfect little podcast studio because my office is actually right next to my husband's upstairs and he's on the phone all day talking and I do a lot of writing. So I had to figure out different places in the house to go to do the things that I need to do.  But anyway, that is not why you came here today, right? You're thinking Heal Nourish Grow podcast, the description intrigued me, how can I learn? What can I do? What is this all about?

With Netflix and Amazon Prime and all those streaming services. We're used to being able to have a lot of episodes on demand. So I wanted to start with a few so that you get a sense of what...

To be clear, I want to take the research, help explain it and break it down into bite-sized chunks you can incorporate into a keto lifestyle that is practical and sustainable! If you're not ready to go fully keto, you'll at least be getting other great health information and how reducing carbs is healthier and can help you reach your goals. This show has several fun segments and will continue to evolve over time. My goal is to make it the best keto podcast out there, so I’d love your feedback.
