Best Plant-Based Proteins
If we want to be at our healthiest, we must know which components are important and answer the question, “Are plant proteins better than meat proteins?” If one chooses to eat stricly plant proteins, i.e. being a vegan, what are the healthiest plant based proteins?
If you're wanting to stop eating meat and consume your proteins from plants, you'll certainly find numerous bits of information that seem to conflict one another in your initial science and health research. . This is especially true when it comes to eating meat and choosing not to include meat in your diet. .
Hydration From Foods
Did you know that water can be eaten? When it comes to whole foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, within it, there is water that can be eaten.
The author of the book “The science of cell Water” wrote that the water you drink “will go right through you,” and take any nutrition with it. Hydration is about the water you preserve and it's no longer about the amount of water you drink.

Why Traditional Diets Are Better
Are non western diets better than what we in the United States eat? Is the key to better health found in more traditional diets from around the world.
If we are to answer that question, we should begin to look at whether non-westernized diets have better gut health than American diets. It seems most non-westernized diets (using that term as a way of eating rather than weight-loss) regularly consume a large amount of non-processed foods. Now, these unprocessed foods are naturally fermented and act as natural probiotics, which is done through fermentation and uses microorganisms and yeast to convert the sugars in the foods into natural occurring carbon dioxide and beneficial lactic acid, which, of course, protects the foods from spoiling and can add some health and taste benefits to it as well.
Does A Diet Have To Be Diverse?
It shouldn't be surprising to know what you eat affects mood. In fact it regulates behavior. But how does it compare with global vs. american diets?
There has been some promising research that has indicated once people take probiotics, their perceived anxiety, how they view and handle pressure, and their intellectual outlook can be enhanced, compared with those who don't include probiotics of their diets. But there have been different studies comparing various non-US diets like the Mediterranean diet and the Japanese diet to a typical SAD diet. Standard American diet.

Nutrition And Insulin
How to be proactive about your health. That seems to be how society is heading, or maybe it's not. We should be looking at our health outside the box.
I'd like to discuss nutrition, and really bio hacking nutrition, and how the key to your long term success will be built upon three things. Foods bring people together, it's the source of pleasure. It also serves as the foundation that really can build on anything else that makes this body run.

Does Will Power Affect Your Cravings?
Did you know in most instances, cravings are simply just a blood sugar issue and ultimately a mind game your brain plays on your body? If you have enough will power, will it really stop food cravings? Ultimately, there is a huge difference between craving certain foods and actual hunger.
Today I'm going to be talking about hunger. How do you know when you're really hungry or if it's just your mind playing tricks on you. I'm going to give you a fun way to figure that out, but if you're thirsty, generally most instances, you'll pretty much drink whatever is available, Coke, tea, water, kombucha.

These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
