March 29, 2019
Today’s guest is Amanda Montalvo, an Integrative Dietitian and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. You may know her from her website yournontoxiclife.com, which has a TON of resources. I was introduced to Amanda’s work by Autumn Smith, who we had on the podcast last month. She recommended Amanda and said “You’ve got to get her on the show!” I just loved Autumn and as I was browsing Amanda’s website and preparing for this interview I said to myself “I think I found a new best friend!” She is passionate about helping frustrating women balance their hormones, and boost their energy through detox. I am just so excited and honored to have her on the show today! Welcome, Amanda! Video Version - https://youtu.be/tRR8taY_0k4 Amanda's Website - https://yournontoxiclife.com/  STARTER QUESTIONS: Walk us through your health journey- I know the past 5 years have been really transformational for you. What have you learned about your body? Most of our listeners are women, and I hear from so many of them who are so frustrated with “the pill” and how it makes them feel. But they also don’t want to get pregnant, or maybe they’ve been told by their gynecologist that they need the pill in order to keep a regular period. What do you tell these women, and where should they start? Another key piece that you talk about in your health journey is liver health and detox. This has been something I have been really interested in lately because so much ties back to our livers! How did you begin to heal your liver? Do you believe that everyone needs a liver detox? I know a lot of people associate their liver with alcohol and might be thinking “well, I am not a heavy drinker, so my liver is probably good”. What are some hidden signs of liver issues that people may be overlooking just because they assume their liver is fine?  What if someone was a heavy drinker, I know a lot of people drink heavily in their 20’s or in college, is it possible to reverse some of this damage with detox?  For a lot of women, we start going all natural with our food, and then maybe our house hold products…make up is usually the last thing we transition. You have an awesome line of skin and beauty products on your site. Can you talk about the importance of using these natural products? What ingredients should our listeners be looking for in a product that is “bad”?  Let’s talk about your website, your blog is a wealth of information, and we just talked about the beauty products, but I know that you have a lot of other things going on. You offer coaching, cosmetic consults, and help with detox! Give us a run down on everything you have going on and where we can follow you?   Listener Questions: Q1 - 23:53 I feel like I am a podcast junkie and every time I turn around someone talks about this symptom or that symptom and I am like “OMG I have that!” And then I hear about a new supplement that’s out there and I say “Oh I need to take that” so I add a new supplement to my repertoire. Now I am starting to wonder if I am overloading my liver with all of these supplements. Do you think I am overloading it? I am wondering if I should stop all my supplements for a little while and detox, maybe just take some CBD oil? If you think this is a good idea, to take a little break or a detox, how long should I do it? * Jenna in Hampton   Q2 - 26:54 I love this podcast! I feel like you answer so many of my questions that I haven’t even asked! Lately I have been really listening to my body and I feel like my thyroid is somehow connected to my digestion. I can’t figure out quite how, but say I do a three day smoothie detox, I will feel like my thyroid is just in overload, but working really well. Another time, I may eat a big meal, with starches, my body just doesn’t digest the food and I feel like my thyroid is off. Something like a simple meat and veggies is usually fine! Is this all in my mind, or do you think my thyroid is somehow tied to my digestion? * Laura in Minnesota   Q3 - 29:02 I am all about the detox, and I know you are too! Lately I have been looking at gallbladder flushes, which is something new. I am not aware of gall bladder issues, but I know it is tied to so many different things. Same with the liver. Should I flush my gall bladder and liver? And if so, what do you recommend? Dr Google told me about a liver flush, but it had mixed reviews, some really bad and some good. What do you recommend? * Danielle in Redmond   Q4 - 33:54 Literally every podcast that I listen to and everyone that I follow on Instagram has been talking about dry brushing so I ordered it on Amazon, and I am in LOVE! I’ve only been using it a week, but I just love the way it feels, it is so revitalizing! But the main reasons I got it are because I heard it helps with cellulite, and of course for my lymphatic system. Do you believe that this is true and proven, or do you think it’s all in my head? How does brushing your skin work to benefit your lymphatic system and cellulite? * Ally in Virginia Beach   Q5 - 36:04 I really enjoy your podcast! You always bring the best guests, and I can’t wait to hear from Amanda Montalvo because my skin really needs some help. I do intermittent fasting and eat in a 6 hour window on most days, but sometimes I will do longer fasts, from 24 hours to 3 days. When I do these long fasts, my skin is EXCELLENT! It is so perfect. But as soon as I start eating again, I notice everything from my psoriasis, to my exczema and acne, coming back with a vengeance. I eat really clean for the most part, I would say about 90/10 Paleo, but it’s still not good enough, nothing compares to fasting. Unfortunately, I can’t fast forever! Do you think my skin issues are tied to digestion? And if I am already eating clean, what can I do to improve my skin besides never eating again? * Pat in Florida   Q6 - 38:11 I am 28 years old, and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for the past two years. We have tried everything (NATURAL) under the sun, it seems. One of my friends told me about Seed Cycling, saying that it can help, she has a friend of a friend that did it and got pregnant. I have never heard of it before, and I am always a little hesitant of trying something just because it worked for a friend of a friend. Is this something that you recommend? And can you talk about how it works? * Anonymous   --------------------------------------- To learn more about the principles of intermittent fasting, purchase Chantel's book, Waist Away: The Chantel Ray Way NOW by visiting http://amzn.to/2CVmTgs YouTube Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCteFjiVaY6n0SOAixcyZbWA Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TheChantelRayWay     Things we love: https://chantelrayway.com/things-i-love-2/  Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheChantelRayWay   ***As always, this podcast is not designed to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any condition and is for information purposes only.

Video version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI9eI-SlFtU&feature=youtu.be   Dr O'Bryan's website: https://thedr.com/   LISTENER QUESTIONS:  Q1 - 31:27 A few months back, I tested with my Doctor and found out that I am gluten intolerant, so I’ve been really careful to eat gluten free. I had my husband and son tested as well, and they don’t appear to be intolerant. I didn’t really make any changes to their diets, but now I am starting to wonder, Should I be limiting their gluten as well? I have some friends who eat gluten free, but they aren’t gluten intolerant…should we all be avoiding gluten like the plague? I get such mixed messages. Heather in Lubbock, TX   Q2 - 35:05  I stopped breast feeding my daughter around 11 months old, and now she is 4. She drinks organic whole milk about twice a day and loves it, she asks for it if I forget to give it to her. But now I am reading that kids shouldn’t drink milk past a certain age. I know so many people are concerned about dairy, and I personally drink almond milk, but my daughter wants the real thing. What is your opinion on cows milk for children? Is there an age that we should stop serving it to them? Jamie in Knoxville   Q3 - 40:15  I have read a lot about the benefits of sauna for Arthritis, and have been going to the sauna at my gym every day after workout. But now everyone is talking about INFRARED saunas. What is the difference in the benefits of a traditional sauna like I have at my gym and an infrared sauna? Do I need to track down an infrared, or will the standard sauna at my gym do the trick? Helen in Fairfax   Q4 - 43:25 What is your opinion on Autoimmune disease and working out? I am diagnosed with Lupus and my doctor is always telling me things like I should be listening to my body and taking it easy when I am in a flare up. But I’ve noticed that when I work out, even when I am feeling awful, I do feel a little bit better overall afterwards. The only problem is after I workout, I puff up like a blow fish. Why is my body puffing up after a workout? And does this mean I should be taking it easy? I don’t want my life to stop because I don’t feel well. Amy in St Pete   Q5 - 47:55  I always wear toe nail polish and get regular pedicures. I took the polish off myself a couple of weeks ago and noticed that my nails were extremely yellow and overall unhealthy looking. I decided to leave the polish off for a few weeks to let them breathe, and they haven’t improved! A lot of things that I read online point to autoimmune issues, and some scary things like liver problems.  But I also know that it can be simple like some sort of deficiency. Is this something I should be concerned with? What can I do to improve my nail health, and to consider the root cause?

Today’s guest is Dr. Guillermo Ruiz. He is passionate about advancing naturopathic practices with an evidence-based medicine approach for issues like Auto-Immune Disorders, Hormone Balance, Thyroid Disease, Heavy Metal Toxicity, and infectious disease. He practices medicine at Integrative Health in Scottsdale, Arizona, with Dr. Alan Christianson, who many of you have probably heard of. He also hosts a podcast called “30/30 Health” where he interviews the most influential personalities in the health movement. It’s such an honor to have him with us today! Youtube Version: https://youtu.be/JtGfCzrJwoA Dr. Ruiz Site: www.3030strong.com/  Starter Questions: Tell us about yourself, how did you get your start in medicine, and where did you find your passion for naturopathic practice? One of the things I know you are really passionate about is research, what is one of the projects that you have going on right now that you are really excited about? I first head of you through your work with Paleo FX, and we have a lot of listeners who eat Paleo, or mostly Paleo, because of different auto-immune and hormonal issues. Is the Paleo diet something that you are passionate about for everyone, or are you on more of a case by case basis with that, depending on their issues? Before we get to listener questions, tell me about your diet, I always like to ask my guest to walk my listeners through a day in the life. What did you eat yesterday, and when did you eat? Yesterday was the Super Bowl so that could affect your answer! Listener Questions: Q1 - 21:49 I am always trying to figure out what is wrong with me LOL! My thyroid is functioning a lot better- I’ve been eating 95% Paleo, and also fasting in about a 6-hour window. But I am still feeling some of the symptoms that I attributed to my thyroid issues, like being constantly tired and constantly cold. My most recent bloodwork showed my iron as being really low, and borderline anemic. Do you think this could be at the root of my issues?  And if so, what are some of the best ways to improve my iron levels? - Shannon in Northern Virginia Q2 - 29:18 Q: I have had three Urinary Tract Infections in the past 6 months. I have been seeing someone new and heard that can cause the infections, which made the first one explainable. But they keep coming back! Is there such a thing as chronic UTIs? Or am I doing something horrible to my body that could be causing them? I feel like I am spending the majority of my life going to the bathroom, or in pain! - Anonymous Q3 - 34:21 Q: Everywhere I turn, I am hearing about celery juicing! I remember you talking about it a few months ago, and since then, it has become such a trend! Can you talk some more about the benefits of celery juice, a vegetable that I thought until recently, was mostly water! Also, I can’t stand the taste of the juice, but I don’t mind eating it.  Will I get the same effects if I eat celery instead of drinking it/? - Madeline in Chesapeake Q4 - 42:18 Q: My friend had me give myself an at home iodine test to check my levels, where I applied something to my skin, and it soaked up all the iodine, which meant my levels were low. Iodine is something that has never been on my radar as something I need to be concerned with, and now I am like “great that’s one more thing”! Why has my doctor never talked about this, and is this something I should be worried about? What is the function of Iodine, and what are some ways I should get more of it? The most obvious is iodized salt, but there are so many mixed reviews on salt these days! - Melissa in Fresno   Closing: Where can our listeners follow your work, and check out your podcast? --------------------------------------- To learn more about the principles of intermittent fasting, purchase Chantel's book, Waist Away: The Chantel Ray Way NOW by visiting http://amzn.to/2CVmTgs YouTube Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCteFjiVaY6n0SOAixcyZbWA Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TheChantelRayWay     Things we love: https://chantelrayway.com/things-i-love-2/  Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheChantelRayWay   ***As always, this podcast is not designed to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any condition and is for information purposes only.

Today’s guest is president of the Intensive Dietary Management Program, which she founded with her partner Dr. Jason Fung, who I am sure you are all familiar with.  She coaches clients all over the world, teaching them the principles that allowed her to lose 60 pounds herself and maintain that healthy lifestyle. It’s such an honor to have her on the show today, please welcome Megan Ramos! Video Version: https://youtu.be/c9W1EHdiaVc Megan's Website: https://idmprogram.com/ STARTER QUESTIONS: Tell us a little about your health journey? through all of my interviews, I have found a common theme that most people have a huge personal “Why” for what they do. How did IDM come to be? From what I understand, it started small and has just BLOWN up! You guys offer a great community, both on Facebook, and Live Q and As and different forums, as well as individualized coaching. Can you tell us more about everything that IDM offers? I know that personally, you tend to follow the Ketogenic diet for the most part, with a few cheats here and there. I don’t follow the Keto diet, but it seems like there are a lot of Intermittent Fasting fans out there who also eat Ketogenic. How do these two go hand in hand? People ask me all the time if you can be in Ketosis without eating Keto. A question that I like to ask every guest, is what is a day in the life of Megan like? Can you tell us what you eat from the time you wake up until you go to bed at night? What hours do you eat and fast, etc? Take yesterday for example. Today, I want to do something a little different. Our podcast started out talking about Intermittent Fasting, and it is really the backbone of the show, though we have guests that come on and talk about all kinds of things like Thyroids, Hormones, Gut Health, etc. But today I really want to get back to the basics of Intermittent Fasting and have you debunk 5 of the Most Common Intermittent Fasting Myths that we hear all the time. So I’m going to share the myths, and you will respond to them. Ready? MYTHS: Myth #1- 25:50 - Intermittent fasting will cause my metabolism to slow down because my body will think it’s starving. Myth #2- 28:20 - Intermittent fasting is bad for my blood sugar. If I don’t eat sugar every couple hours, I will see my blood sugar drop and I will pass out and feel week.  Myth #3- 30:10 - When I am following Intermittent fasting, I can eat whatever I want and as much as I want, as long as it is in my eating window. Myth #4- 31:36 - It is not safe to workout while Intermittent fasting. I need to eat carbs and sugar before working out.   Listener Questions: Q1 - 40:04 I was listening to a doctor on another podcast recently who mentioned that he does Intermittent Fasting for half of the year, every year, from January-June. He did not really give his reasoning why but said he had been doing this for many years. This was the first I heard of a regimen like this, and I am assuming since he was a Dr that there was some reason for it. Do you know of any benefits to intense Intermittent Fasting for a short portion of the year, and “normal” eating for the rest of the year? Joyce in Colorado Q2 - 43:00 I love your show but I feel like I’ve listened to different people, and different people recommend different supplements and I love all the different people, but I keep adding different supplements every time I listen to a new show. I’m up to 14 different ones and I think this is too much and out of control with too many supplements. How many is too many, and is there 1 that I should be taking for sure, and how can I dial this number down. Judy Calgary Q3 - 50:04 I have been doing the Keto diet for the past couple months, and since then I have joined several Facebook groups of people who are doing the same. I have noticed several comments when people are talking about a specific food item or recipe, where they will say “Such and such is low carb, but it’s not keto”, or some people will refer to their personal diets like low carb but not keto. Can you explain the difference in the low carb diet and the Keto Diet? -Tarryn in Bedford Q4 - 53:06 I have been consistent with Intermittent Fasting for 3 months now, and I can’t believe the results I am seeing! Not only in my weight loss, but with my mental clarity and energy. 6 days a week, I eat in a 6-hour window, typically from noon to 6 pm. The only exception to my eating window is my morning coffee. I have found some flavored Keurig cups that don’t appear to have any calories or sugar, but the ingredients say: “Coffee and other natural flavors”. I am not someone who likes to ask questions that I can easily find on Google, but I have literally spent hours trying to find an answer for this online, and haven’t come to any conclusions! It’s not just one Keurig cup brand either, I notice a trend in these “other natural flavors” with no explanation. Will these flavors break my fast, and hurt my weight loss, even if they appear to be calorie free? Jenna in Connecticut Q5 - 54:47 I recently started working out with a new trainer, who is insistent that I eat 4-5 small meals a day. I try to explain to him that this way of thinking is extremely old school, that our body doesn’t need to eat all day long, but the problem is that he is in shape and the expert, and I am someone with a lot of weight left to lose. From everything I’ve learned from this podcast and in your book, I truly believe I shouldn’t be feeding my body all day long, and that I need to give it time to rest and digest! Not only that, but I don’t have time to be prepping and shopping and eating that many meals each day. How should I explain this to him in a way that he will respect and accept? I want his help with my workouts but simply don’t agree with this way of thinking. Heather in Virginia Q6 - 58:08 If I want to do a longer fast, let’s say 5 full days. There’s no way I can do it without green juice, lemon in my water, or cream in my coffee. Are you ok with this?

Welcome back to the Waist Away podcast! Today’s guest is a new friend of the show. Chantel met him when she appeared on his podcast a few weeks ago, the Million Pound Mission. He is on a mission to help others lose a collective one million pounds. He also runs a boot camp, a university, and he does coaching because he is passionate about helping people. It’s an honor to have Adam Schaeuble on the show today! Adam's website: https://www.transformationcoach.me/about-adam-schaeuble video version: https://youtu.be/P967FR38tXk    Listener Questions:    I have never had a problem with losing weight, I am able to cut weight anytime I need to by modifying my diet and exercise. My problem has always been with maintaining my weight. As soon as I hit my weight loss goals, I let my foot off the gas, and slowly gain it back. What advice do you have to help make my weight loss last?  - Shawn in Tampa   Q2 - 21:47 I’ve been trying to be more mindful of my sugar consumption and applying the two bite rule, not having more than three bites of anything super sweet. I want to know if I should be applying the same rule to fruit? It seems like everyone is so divided on this topic, some people say I should eat as many fruits and veggies as I crave, while others say I need to eliminate or severely limit my fruit intake. What’s your opinion on this?  - Jerry in Harrisonburg   Q3 - 24:28 In your book, you talk about not depriving yourself of the foods that you love, and how you allow yourself to eat what you’re craving on occasion. My problem is that I can’t stop once I start. If I am craving chicken nuggets from Chick Fil A, just 5 won’t do it…I will eat and eat 20 nuggets. For this reason, I rarely allow myself to indulge. I wish I could just have a couple nuggets, for example, and be satisfied! Do you have any tips to help me stop? I need to find the balance between deprivation and binging!  - Anonymous   Q4 - 29:15 I have been doing Intermittent Fasting and steadily losing weight for almost a year now. I am super close to my goal weight. During this year, I haven’t really done much exercise, but at the beginning of the year, I started working out consistently. I  am really loving the workouts, they make me feel great! But the problem is I have noticed that the scale is stalling. Where I was consistently losing weight every month, I have been stuck for almost a month now! I am burning calories, and sticking to a 6 hour window 5 days a week, and a 2 hour window two days a week. Recently, my friend told me that maybe I am not losing weight since I am gaining muscle with my workouts. Do you think this is the case? I always remember hearing that muscle weighs more than fat. Is this really true? When will I start to see the scale drop again?  - Heather in Chesapeake   Q5 - 32:57 On my journey to cut back on sugar, I have come across some sugar substitutes that I really like. My favorite one is Swerve. I know that Aspartame is really horrible for you, but I am wondering your opinion on Swerve? What is your opinion on things like Coconut sugar and monk fruit?  - Angela in Mckinney, TX   Q6 - 35:56 I have a bunch of friends doing the Whole 30 this month and posting about it. I am shocked how things like potatoes and corn are encouraged in this plan, and appear to be unlimited! I know that these things have a lot of carbs in them, and even corn is really closer to being a grain than a vegetable. If these things are prepared naturally (obviously not deep fried LOL), should I be concerned with my intake? Also, what is your opinion on Whole 30?  - Lauren in Chesapeake   Q7 - 38:59 I want to get your opinion on cheat meals. I seem to get mixed reviews! Some people tell me they are awesome to give a little shock to your metabolism and help satisfy whatever you are craving, and some people tell me that they are not good. What do you think? My personal issue with cheat meals tends to be that often they can turn into a cheat day, then a cheat weekend! LOL.  - Paris in Northern VA   Q8 - 43:20 I LOVE INTERMITTENT FASTING! I have been eating from 12-6 each day and have lost almost 20 lbs in just 3 months! The weight was coming off steadily, but now is starting to stall. The one thing I do enjoy during my fasting hours is a Sugar Free Coffee Syrup. I assumed it was fine since there is no sugar and very few calories, but have been reading up a little on how sometimes these artificial sugars can trick the body into believing they are real sugar and causing the insulin to rise. Should I completely avoid this while I am on the fast? I love having this every morning, it really helps me power through the fast!  - Courtney in FL   --------------------------------------- To learn more about the principles of intermittent fasting, purchase Chantel's book, Waist Away: The Chantel Ray Way NOW by visiting http://amzn.to/2CVmTgs YouTube Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCteFjiVaY6n0SOAixcyZbWA Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TheChantelRayWay     Things we love: https://chantelrayway.com/things-i-love-2/  Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheChantelRayWay   ***As always, this podcast is not designed to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any condition and is for information purposes only.

It's a stool that sits around your toilet and lifts up your knees so you're sitting like a caveman when you poop. She said this is the way nature intended us to poop, lol. I have never heard of this before and what is the truth behind it? Do you agree with it?  - Joann in Virginia Beach.   Q2 - 39:47 I've tried everything natural to help me go, and it seems like everything works for a short amount of time and then all of the sudden it stops working. I've tried Senna Tea, Aloe Lax, Smooth Move just to name a few. Why is it that they seem to work and then all of the sudden stop? Do you have any recommendations for something else to either drink or take as a supplement to help me go?  - Natalie in Alabama   Q3 - 41:39 I listened to your podcast about floating poop and I went to my doctor and he said that floating poop isn't that big of a deal. It was thought to be for a little while but that's a less popular idea now. He said it has to do with the amount of fat that you are eating, but I shouldn't be concerned. By the way, this was a general doctor, not a specialist. I feel like I'm just getting mixed messages about this because after your podcast I got the idea that it was a bad thing. I've been reading online a lot of stuff that talks about the foods that we eat that cause gas that makes the floating poop. I was surprised because some healthy things that were listed were apples, honey and prunes. What is the deal? Is it good or bad or doesn't matter?  - Anonymous   Q4 - 47:11 I want to have a stool test done to see what's going on and find out if my liver and gut are normal. What is the best kit I could buy to help me dive into those issues but won't cost me an arm and a leg? Something that is reliable. Also, can you just do a blood test for this or is stool better?  - Angela in Myrtle Beach   Q5 - 49:42 I have this problem where every time I'm in a car and airplane, somewhere that I know it's really inconvenient to go to the bathroom I have to go. Even if I'm driving to church or work locally, I have to leave 15 minutes early just in case I have to stop at a gas station and go to the bathroom. What is my problem and how do I get back to living my life?  - Courtney in Fluvana.   Q6 - 51:37  . Do you think CBD oil helps with constipation? It's been helping me with pain in joints, but does it help or hurt with constipation?  - Jennifer in New Hampshire    --------------------------------------- To learn more about the principles of intermittent fasting, purchase Chantel's book, Waist Away: The Chantel Ray Way NOW by visiting http://amzn.to/2CVmTgs YouTube Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCteFjiVaY6n0SOAixcyZbWA Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TheChantelRayWay     Things we love: https://chantelrayway.com/things-i-love-2/  Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheChantelRayWay   ***As always, this podcast is not designed to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any condition and is for information purposes only.

She is an award-winning nutritionist and New York Times Best Selling Author of over 30 books on health and nutrition including diet, detox, women’s health, perimenopause, menopause, beauty, and the environment. SELF Magazine recognized her as one of the Top 10 Notable Nutritionists in the United States, and she’s known as the First Lady of Nutrition. It is such an honor to have her on the show again! Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman's Website: https://annlouise.com/ Bile Builder: https://unikeyhealth.com/products/bile-builder Video Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCls4yWhREc&feature=youtu.be   Listener Questions:   04:23 - Q: A couple of my friends have been talking about trying the “Amazing Gallbladder and Liver Flush” and I wanted to see if you were familiar with this, and if it was something that you recommend? Brandy in New Hampshire   07:00 - Q: I really enjoyed your podcast with Dr Gittleman and am so excited she is coming back on the show! On the last episode, she talked about not being a big fan of kombucha, but didn’t elaborate too much. I was thrown off by this because kombucha seems to be all the rage in my healthy circles. Could you talk some more about pros and cons of kombucha, and what I should be looking out for? Lauren in North Carolina   13:20 - Q: With it being the New Year, a lot of my friends are talking about resolutions, and some of them are trying to give up coffee. Some of them say the problem with their coffee is everything that they add to it, while others say that they’ve heard caffeine ages you. One friend simply said she doesn’t want to depend on coffee to get through her day. I can give up a lot of things if I need to, but coffee would be really hard for me! What is your opinion on the pros and cons of coffee? I either drink it black, or with a little cream. Tricia in Vienna   18:11 - Q: I live right behind a police station, and recently received a letter that some heavy metals were found on site and in the water. The letter recommended that all residents with a ½ mile radius have their ground water well tested for contaminates, and said that the City Health and Public Works Department will come out and test this for free. None of my neighbors seem to be freaking out about this, but I am. Have you heard of something like this before? I have scheduled my appointment, which is a few weeks out. In the meantime, should I be avoiding my water? Drinking it, showering in it, etc. And there are the what if’s after the Health Department comes out…if they say the water is safe, should I continue business as usual, and if it is not safe, what should I do? HELP! Courtney in Virginia Beach     21:04 - Q: My mom had gallbladder issues in her 40s, and had to have it removed after a lot of pain and complications. I want to do things that promote good gallbladder health so that I can keep mine as long as possible. What kinds of foods should I be eating or avoiding, and are there any supplements that you recommend? Tracie in Winston Salem   22:55 - Anonymous Question   23:55 - Q: I deal with hypothyroidism, and have recently been learning how that is related to my bile and gallbladder. It’s all so confusing, I am trying to figure out if my gallbladder is causing thyroid issues or my thyroid is causing my gallbladder issues, but I keep hearing people talk about how I need to create healthy bile! Can you talk about how these two are related (the thyroid and the gallbladder), and the role of bile? Rose in Destin   27:16 - Q: I recently heard a doctor on another podcast talking about olive oil. He said it is the best thing ever for us, and that we can’t get enough of it, that we should be putting it on everything that we eat! I was wondering if you agree with this, first of all, and also, if there is such thing as too much healthy fats. Will the hurt my gallbladder? Kim in Ohio   30:53 - Q: I tried to give blood today, and the nurse on the bloodmobile told me that my iron was too low. This is the first I’ve heard of this being an issue for me! What are some things I can do to improve my iron? -Lexi in Norfolk   32:10 - Q: I eat really healthy, work out 5x week, have been doing Intermittent Fasting in about a 6 hour window, but I am still really tired! Everything seems to be fine except my Ferratin levels are low, while my iron is normal. What is the difference in iron levels and Ferratin levels, and could this be what is making me tired? Sarah in Providence   40:44 - Q: My thyroid is getting a little better since I’ve been fasting, but my numbers still aren’t back to normal.  My doctor has said that I am low in iodine, and that I can get iodine in dairy. But I thought dairy wasn’t good for my thyroid? I am so tired of this conflicting information! What can I do to raise my iodine levels and should I be eating dairy? Becky in New York   43:24 - Q: I have been really trying to follow the 80/20 principle and have cleaned up my diet a lot, even getting rid of dairy and gluten but my Psoriasis and eczema are still out of control. Do you have any other tips I can try?  - Anonymous   --------------------------------------- To learn more about the principles of intermittent fasting, purchase Chantel's book, Waist Away: The Chantel Ray Way NOW by visiting http://amzn.to/2CVmTgs YouTube Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCteFjiVaY6n0SOAixcyZbWA Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TheChantelRayWay     Things we love: https://chantelrayway.com/things-i-love-2/  Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheChantelRayWay   ***As always, this podcast is not designed to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any condition and is for information purposes only.

Welcome back to the Waist Away Podcast! Today’s guest is the cofounder of  Paleo Valley, which is an INCREDIBLE online resource, with a ton of helpful information, and a line of incredible products that she helped create. She is also one of the cohosts of the Optimize Paleo Podcast, which has become one of my favorites to listen to. Please welcome Autumn Smith! Video version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is_z5WprLns&feature=youtu.be Check out Autumn's online store: https://paleovalley.com/ (use the promo code 'autumn10' to get 10% off her products!!)   SPEAKER QUESTIONS: Q1 - 02:28 I know you had some frustrations with the “healthy” foods that were on the market and all of their crazy ingredients, which just drives me crazy too! So you created a bunch of your own. How did your Paleovalley product line come to be? Q2 - 09:02 When we were preparing for this interview, you told me that one of the things you are really passionate about is educating people on micronutrient deficiency, which can rear its head in everything from dandruff to weight gain and high blood pressure. It can really lead to some serious issues, and for some people, it’s not even on their radar! Can you talk a little about this? Q3 - 11:44 Another thing that you are passionate about is functional testing, which is something I know so many of our listeners would be interested in because so many people want to know what the heck is wrong with them, or why they aren’t feeling 100%. There are so many different options out there, to check your gut, hormones, antibodies, and a bunch of other stuff. What have you learned about functional testing, and what has your experience been with it? Q4 - 15:22  Before we get started with Listener Questions, I want to ask you something that I ask all my guests…walk us through a day in the life of Autumn, what and when do you eat on a typical day? Or just tell us what you ate yesterday for example?   LISTENER QUESTIONS:  Q1 - 21:25 I was at one of my favorite local restaurants last week, and requested my sandwich on a gluten free bun, but I immediately felt horrible afterwards. My stomach was in knots, and I just felt so icky the rest of the day. I figure that they accidentally gave me regular bread, which has happened before. Next time this happens (which hopefully it won’t), what should I do to counteract this gluten attack? Carol in Arkansas Q2 - 25:19  I developed a really bad staph infection and had no choice but to take an antibiotic, which I ABSOLULTELY hate to do! I was scared and didn’t want it to spread. Anyways, I am done with the antibiotic, my staph infection is gone, and now I want to get my gut back in order! What can I do to get my gut health in check after wrecking it with antibiotics? Pamela in Forest, Virginia Q3 - 27:00 My friend has been obsessed with Alkaline water lately, she swears by it! I saw it for sale by the gallon at my local juice bar the other day and asked the cashier about it. She said I should start with a level 7, because if I started with a level 10, I could become violently ill and get a migraine, since I am not used to alkaline water. It struck me as odd that any sort of water could make me sick! Then I remembered something you said on your podcast about how you aren’t a fan of it, but I couldn’t remember why. What is your opinion on alkaline water, and why? Mariah in New Mexico Q4 - 30:51 I recently started eating Paleo, and am really enjoying the energy I am feeling during the day, but I have had the hardest time sleeping! I’ve also noticed that when I do sleep, I have really odd/vivid dreams. I was reading online that this is common for people who cut out sugar. Why is this? Will I go back to normal soon? Karen in Northern VA Q5 - 37:03  My questions is that my scale has not moved, and I have not lost inches. But I looked at my Christmas photos, and I look visibly smaller. My arms and even legs look more trim. How is it possible to look thinner, but the scale and measurements haven’t changed? Love your podcast, I listen every day at work! Lauri from Sparks, Nevada Q6 - 42:31 So.. I know at some point, I gotta give up cheese.. Ive always loved cheese! All of a sudden however, I have been tasting the salt immensely in the cheese.😣😣 I did pray recently to the Lord to change my taste buds to the foods he wants me to eat. I like you did, have HYPOTHYROIDISM. I know the Lord is calling me to a natural way of eating. So.. In paleo, I saw raw dairy cheese as acceptable.. So in my case, what should I do?

Today’s guest is the host of the La Vida Low Carb podcast, which I appeared on recently and had a BLAST! He is also the co- host of Keto Talk with Dr Will Cole, and the author of several books including Keto Clarity and Cholesterol Clarity, and the Complete Guide to Fasting, which he co-authored with Dr Jason Fung…it is one of my favorites! His most recent project is “Real Food Keto”, which he wrote with his wife, Christine. I am sooo excited to have them both on the show today! Please welcome Jimmy and Christine Moore. Video Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2gsKCuzvR4 Jimmy's Website: http://www.livinlavidalowcarb.com    STARTING QUESTIONS: For our listeners that don’t know you, tell us about both of your personal journeys, how long have you been Livin La Vida Low Carb, and what caused you to start on this journey? You’ve been “Keto” long before Keto was a popular thing, early 2000’s right? In your new book, Real Food Keto, you talk about focusing on whole foods, which is something a lot of Keto people don’t talk abo. Tell us about what makes your book different from the other books written about the keto diet? Everyone knows about the Keto diet as it pertains to weight loss, but your book digs into so many other topics like digestion and detoxification. Tell us some more about these other benefits that aren’t spoken of as much in Keto Circles? Another cool thing about the book is that it has a bunch of recipes! Did you help develop these? Which are some of your favorites in the book? What would you say some of the most common misconceptions about the Keto Diet are, and how do you combat them? Let’s talk about Intermittent Fasting. I find that a lot of Keto people have been able to easily transition into Intermittent Fasting, and vice versa. How are the two related? Before we get started with Listener Questions, I want to ask you a question I ask every guest, walk us through a day in the life of Jimmy and Christine. What do you eat on any given day, take yesterday for example? What time do you usually eat your first meal, last meal, etc. As I talked about, you have a lot going on between your podcasts, books, Youtube, etc. What is the best one stop shop that our listeners can follow you to keep posted on all that you are doing? Also, you need to tell the listeners about your Low Carb cruise which sounds like a ton of fun! Listener Questions: Q1 - 10:44 I was talking about the Keto diet with my girl friend the other day and she told me she was doing something called the Modified Keto diet which is a lot less restrictive. Are you familiar with this, and can you please explain it? Is this something that you recommend? -Samantha in New Jersey Q2 - 15:14 I have been consistently intermittent fasting for a year now, typically in a 6 hour eating window each day. The longest I’ve ever fasted is 24 hours. I want to push myself to a longer fast, but want to be safe in doing so. What are some good ways to ease into longer fasts? What is the longest amount of time that it is safe to water fast? -Cynthia in Myrtle Beach Q3 -  31:35 High Cholesterol runs in my family, and the last time I had bloodwork done, my LDL was slightly elevated. Of course, the doc wanted to put me on medication but I am not ready to do that. What can I do to try to reverse this naturally? I am 40 years old, about 20 lb overweight. -Tracie in Fort Worth Q4 -  24:53 I read something the other day about the Keto diet treating fatty liver disease. I found this to be insane since the Keto diet is a high fat diet. This really got me thinking how counter cultural this diet can seem. For example, there are some people who think I should limit the amount of red meat, and steaks, while they are a staple of the Keto diet. In the simplest way, how do you describe the benefits of a high fat diet to people who just don’t get it? Anonymous Q5 - 29:30 I am in my first week of Keto and having severe aches in my arms and legs. I haven’t been doing anything out of the ordinary as far as workouts, so I can’t help but wonder if this was related to my diet change? I started googling and saw that this is common when transitioning to Keto, and one reason I read was that my salt levels could be low? My whole life I’ve been trying to limit my salt, I’ve heard its especially bad for women and weight loss. Now I am hearing that I should be adding more salt to my food and even into my water to avoid these aches. Is this true? And if so, why? -Toni in New York Q6 - 32:19 Can you help me settle the keto alcohol debate once and for all? I am told that things like whiskey and vodka don’t contain carbs, so to my understanding, if I drink them with soda water or something like Diet Pepsi or crystal light, it should be a carb free drink? So why do some people say you can’t drink alcohol and stay in Ketosis? I’ve cut out wine and beer, and felt this was a good alternative. Also, along these lines, I’ve been told that flavored vodkas don’t have carbs in them, but can’t understand how this is true. Something about the sugar being cooked out? How can I cut loose and still cut my weight at the same time? -Jennifer in Lancaster Q7 - 35:06 I started the keto diet and the first two days I had the worst stomach cramps on bright yellow diarrhea. I’ve never seen it this color before. It was the color of a highlighter. I went back to normal eventually, but it was still alarming. Have you ever heard of this and what is the cause? -Anonymous

In this episode we talk to Brad Kearns! He is the Co-Author of “Keto Reset Diet” which was a New York Times Bestseller. He also works with Mark Sisson to promote the Primal Blueprint lifestyle with books, seminars, retreats ,and online courses. He also hosts two podcasts, the “Get Over Yourself” Podcast and the “Primal Endurance” podcast. He’s a triathlete, and fun fact, in 2018, he TWICE broke the Guiness World Record for the fastest single hole of golf ever played. It’s such an honor to have him on the show! Video version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKUH57eZLiQ&feature=youtu.be  Brad Kearns website: https://www.bradkearns.com/   Speaker Questions Q1 - 09:54 I get a lot of questions about Ketosis- how can someone tell when they are in ketosis, how long does it usually take people to get into ketosis, and can one little slip up, like a cookie or something throw you right out of ketosis? Can you talk a little about the state of Ketosis? Q2 - 12:25 A big piece of this book, and the Keto Reset is Intermittent Fasting, which is of course what we got started talking about on this show. Will you explain how Keto and Intermittent Fasting go hand in hand? What are the hours that you personally eat and fast each day?   Listener Questions Q1 - 20:11 I ate Keto for almost a year and several months ago I fell off the wagon and have had the hardest time getting back into it. I have a couple good days and then I fall off again. I miss how I feel in Ketosis and really want to get back to it, not only was I losing weight, but I felt GREAT! Do you have any tips to get me back in the zone? Julie in Rock Hill   Q2 - 24:53 Since I struggle with Autoimmune issues, I always assumed gluten was just about the worst thing, but I could eat, but lately I realize that it’s dairy that is really affecting me. I’ve noticed that when I have dairy it just makes me so tired and I feel awful. I don’t want to completely deprive myself and binge out. I’ve heard that sheep and goat dairy are the best forms of dairy that I should focus on. What are your thoughts on dairy, and if I were to have just a little, what are some of the best sources? Lisa in Greenville   Q3 - 26:47 I’ve heard nightmare stories about starting the Keto diet, including the Keto Flu, and everything else from bad breath, constipation, to low sex drive. I want to get started, but all of these horror stories kind of freak me out. What are some things I can do to make the transition smoother? Jamie in Virginia Beach   Q4 - 32:40  What are some of your favorite keto sweet treats? I am not a huge sweet person but sometimes I just want a little bite of something. One thing I enjoy is a spoon or two of whipped cream, which is only about 1 carb per TBSP, but I know the chemicals in it are not good for me. What are some better alternatives? Kyle in Arizona   Q5 - 34:37 I’ve lost about 60 pounds over the past year following Intermittent Fasting and the Keto diet. I have about 15 lbs left to go (20 would be nice), and those last few lbs are just so stubborn? I am doing the same thing I’ve been doing, just so stalled! What should I do? Joanne in Idaho   Q6 - 38:06 Is there a difference in the Keto diet, versus Atkins and South Beach? My friends try to tell me they are the same thing with a different name, but I feel like Atkins and South Beach are focused more on low carbs and include a lot more artificial ingredients like their bars and frozen meals. What are some other differences?

Today's guest is the host of “Just In Health” podcast and runs the Just In Health Wellness Clinic and consults patients all over via Skype. He works with everyone from athletes who are trying to increase their performance to people struggling with auto immune issues and chronic illness. It is such an honor to have Dr Justin Marchegiani on the show today!  Video Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jiAVnbD0pk Dr. Marchegiani's Website: https://justinhealth.com/   SPEAKER QUESTIONS I was browsing your website and saw that you interned with Dr Kalish, who was a previous guest on our show, and someone that I am a huge fan of! Tell us how you got started in this field? One of the first times I heard you was on the Candida Summit with Evan Brand. Candida is something we talk about a lot on the show, and recently we’ve received a few questions about Small Intenstin Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBL) which has a lot of the same symptoms of Candida. How can we know the difference in the two? Your website is awesome, you have a ton of resources, so I want to make sure our listeners can find you at justinhealth.com. Tell us about what else you offer, how can we get in touch with you, and what kind of consults do you provide? Before we get started with listener questions, something I always like to ask our guests is to walk us through a typical day in your life. What did you eat yesterday? Our podcast started out talking about Intermittent Fasting, is this something that you do? When do you typically eat?   LISTENER QUESTIONS Q1 - 07:43 I’ve been eating 90% clean and sticking with a 6 hour eating window consistently. I haven’t been drinking alcohol very much, but I have several Christmas parties in the next couple weeks and I want to cut loose, but not ruin the good results I am seeing. When I have a couple glasses of wine here and there I can’t believe how puffy it makes me feel almost immediately! What are some of the “better” drinks I should order? And what is your opinion on drinking in general when I am working towards a healthy lifestyle? Kate in Kansas City   Q2 - 10:56 You’ve touched on Red light therapy in previous podcasts, and I feel like it is popping up everywhere! My local tanning salon has a red light therapy chamber, and another friend of mine just ordered a single bulb that she hangs above her face. Do you think there is really something to this, or is it just another fad? Amy in TX   Q3 - 12:28 Q4 - 14:00 I was having some terrible pain in my knee when I worked out, so I went to the doctor and he told me I am developing arthritis in my right knee. I always thought arthritis affected older people with an unhealthy lifestyle and was really disappointed to hear this. I don’t want to completely stop working out all together, but I also don’t want to make it worse. What should I be doing to remain active, but also to prevent this from worsening? Also, what is the difference in rheumatoid arthritis and what I am experiencing? Could my knee issue develop into rheumatoid arthritis in other places in my body? Rachel in Nevada   Q5 - 17:43  A couple podcasts back, your guest mentioned that I should be pooping one time for every time that I eat. I am typically eating two hours per day in a 6 hour eating window, but I am lucky to poop one time per day, at the MOST! What are some things that I can be doing to get more regular movements, and should I really be concerned with going two times per day? Anonymous   Q6 - 20:19 I used to get migraines as a teenager, a couple times a year…really bad ones that made me vomit. I didn’t have them for over ten years, but in the past 6 months, I’ve had atleast 6 of them. They are so bad that I can’t function, or do anything besides lay there and wait for them to pass, I can’t even sleep. I went to the doctor to get checked out and they can’t find anything wrong with me that would explain them coming back. What could have caused them to disappear and come back suddenly? I am paranoid that something is really wrong, and I can’t afford to miss out on anymore work or life. Tina in South Carolina   Q7 - 23:20  My husband had a check up, and found out that he had high levels of ferritin. This was the first time I ever heard of this. I understand it is somehow related to iron but I am struggling to understand the connection and the difference. Is this something he should be concerned with? Crystal in Augusta   Q8 - 24:28 Lately my periods have been really really strong and I went to the doctor recently and found out that my iron levels are low, and my estrogen levels are high. I’ve tried taking iron supplements but they all seem to make me really constipated. How can I address these iron issues without being constipated! Are there other supplements you recommend, or foods I should focus on? I have a blood drive coming up at my work and I am really hesitant to give blood until I can get my iron under control. A friend told me that when you give blood it encourages your body to make more, but she is not a doctor, and I want to be sure I am taking all the right steps. Veronica in Buffalo   Q9 - 27:55   Q10 - 30:41 I’ve always struggled with getting my water in each day. I heard once that I should be drinking half my body weight in ounces of water. Usually I start off my day really slow, and find myself chugging towards the end of the day to get it all in. The other day, my trainer told me that chugging isn’t good because my body doesn’t absorb the water as well that way. He said that I should sip on it and even move it around in my mouth. This is the first time I’ve ever heard anything like this. Is there any truth behind it? Is it pointless to drink water if I am chugging it down?

Today’s guest is a 3 Time Canadian Natural Bodybuilding Champion, an author, and a huge advocate for natural nutrition and training methods. He’s the president of  BiOptimizers , a company that helps to fix gut health, AND the host of the Awesome Health Podcast. It is such an honor to have Wade Lightheart on the show today! Video Version: https://youtu.be/M57BPWkEtbc Wade Lightheart's Website: http://www.wadelightheart.net/ Speaker Questions You’re the first bodybuilding champion we’ve had on the show, tell us how you got started in the world of Bodybuilding? How did you transition into the world of gut health and digestion, is this something you suffered with personally, did you see a lot of other bodybuilders struggling with this? So what all do you offer through Bioptimizers? I was browsing the site and the Gluten Guardian caught my eye because my body does not handle gluten well and I know many of our listeners struggle with this too. But it’s more than the supplements, you offer courses and so many resources. You talk openly about being vegetarian, what caused you to make this decision, and what changes have you noticed in your body since you made the switch? You are also a fan of Intermittent Fasting, how long have you been doing this, and what is your daily eating window like? What kind of feedback from the body-building community did you get when you started talking about fasting? Before we get started with listener questions, I always like to ask my guests “what did you eat yesterday?” Walk us through a day in your life.   Listener Questions: Q1: 24:26 My friend recently purchased a Kangen water system and is a HUGE fan. Not only does she drink it, but she told me about adjusting different PH levels for things like soaking vegetables, treating moles on her skin, showering, etc. I know it is quite the investment, and I am wondering about the science behind how this works, and is it worth the money, or in her head? She tells me it’s not just about the PH, but also the ionization that breaks the water molecules down. -Amy in Virginia Beach Q2: 30:21 I’ve been researching proteolytic enzymes because I have heard they can be so good for the inflammation that I deal with, as well as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Is it safe to take these while I am doing my longer 24-48 hour fasts? Also, are there any particular brands that you recommend? What are some foods that I can eat which are natural sources of these powerful enzymes? -Clare in Nevada   Q3: 35:38 I had a sinus infection that just wouldn’t go away, and my doctor insisted on putting me on an antibiotic. I hate taking an antibiotic and really didn’t want to do this but it did help me clear up. What can I do/take to get my gut back to normal after the antibiotics infiltrated my system? -Carter in Gainesville   Q4: 37:32 This is so gross, but something I am so curious about! I recently read something in Women’s Health about different poop colors revealing different health issues, or areas of concern. Is this really true? If so, what should I be looking out for? What are some signs of a really good, healthy poop? -Anonymous   Q5: 39:35 I recently saw an article about Round Up pesticide being traced to cancer, which is scary. I buy about 90% organic produce, but on your podcast the other day, I heard that even some produce from a farmers market could have pesticides on it! How can I know that what I am buying is safe, and how do you recommend that I wash my produce in order to be extra sure? Laura in Western Branch   Q6: 41:39 This question is so controversial, literally every person/expert says something completely different, same with every article/book that I read on the subject. What is the healthy number of times to go to the bathroom per day or per week? I hear so many people say they go every day, and that is just not the case for me, I am lucky to go 3x week. I feel fine, I don’t have any symptoms that lead me to believe I have gut issues otherwise. Is everyone different? -Rebecca in North Carolina ---------------------------------------- To learn more about the principles of intermittent fasting, purchase Chantel's book, Waist Away: The Chantel Ray Way NOW by visiting http://amzn.to/2CVmTgs YouTube Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCteFjiVaY6n0SOAixcyZbWA Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TheChantelRayWay     Things we love: https://chantelrayway.com/things-i-love-2/  Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheChantelRayWay  ***As always, this podcast is not designed to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any condition and is for information purposes only.
