Katie: Hiya, and welcome to the “Wellness Mama Podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com and wellnesse.com, which is my new line of private care merchandise, like hair care, shampoo, and conditioner, toothpaste, and hand sanitizer for those who haven’t tried them but. And we have now dry shampoo as nicely. You may try all of that at wellnesse.com. That’s wellness with an E on the tip.

And this episode, I’m going to deal with a bunch of generally requested questions. In actual fact, these are all reader-submitted questions from a current Instagram put up. And I used to be answering a bunch of them on social media and realized it is perhaps much more environment friendly if I simply jumped in right here and answered them in real-time as a podcast episode. I acquired a whole lot of questions associated to protein consumption. And a whole lot of these are follow-ups to a weblog put up I not too long ago printed about my weight reduction during the last couple of years and the way protein was an enormous a part of this equation for me. I’ll be sure that put up is linked within the present notes. However the brief model is that I discovered I used to be truly not consuming sufficient energy. And a part of I feel when my physique was having hassle dropping pounds, except for the trauma side was that I used to be undernourished. And so, for me, fixing that was very a lot two-part. There was the interior mental-emotional work that I did that I talked about intimately in Episode 309, which I can even hyperlink to, however then I additionally needed to make a aware shift away from deprivation and weight-reduction plan, and into nourishing my physique and consuming sufficient meals.

And for me, a key right here particularly was consuming sufficient protein. And now most days, I goal for about 120 grams of protein per day. Usually, I don’t do the identical factor daily. However most days, I eat three meals inside a seven to eight-hour window. So I eat each three-and-a-half to 4 hours throughout that window. And I goal to get no less than 40 grams of protein per meal. And that is one thing I did and began doing instinctively after listening to my physique in the course of the weight reduction and likewise one thing that previous podcast visitor, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, talks about as an essential hormonal signaling mechanism for girls. I’ll be sure that we hyperlink to her podcast as nicely. She actually explains in depth why we want protein and why not getting sufficient can have hormonal penalties. And we all know additionally as we age, issues like lean muscle mass and grip energy, which can be tied to muscle, our predictors of longevity and have diminished danger of every kind of well being issues. So protein, no less than for me, has been an important element. I acquired a whole lot of questions associated to how do I devour sufficient protein? I’ve experimented so much with this. And I’ve a number of issues that appeared to essentially assist. I take aminos from Kion fairly usually. It’s like a liquid or powder that you just add to water. And that’s an entire amino complement. And that appears to essentially profit my pores and skin and I observed a distinction in my exercises. However I additionally simply attempt to get sufficient actual food-based protein at each meal. You’ve in all probability heard me earlier than speak about issues like sardines, that are one among my go-to’s for positive. A number of days per week, my lunch, together with right this moment, was sardines, with salad in entrance of you guys. I can truly present you that’s what my lunch appears like a whole lot of days as a result of it’s cheap and excessive protein.

And I’ll goal for about 40 grams of protein that manner. Different meals for the household, I’ll usually make a whole lot of stir-fries or gradual cooker meals which can be centered on protein after which add in a whole lot of greens. So I’m not consuming by any means keto or carnivore or low carb. I eat carbs a whole lot of days too, particularly exercise days with a spotlight of metabolic flexibility. However getting sufficient protein most days does appear to essentially be a key for me for each weight reduction, and gaining muscle, and for hormones, and sleep high quality.

Considerably associated to this, I acquired a whole lot of observe up questions, together with one, are you able to focus on extra about getting your self within the parasympathetic state? So, this was one other key for me, and I feel actually tied into the trauma side and why I needed to take care of the psychological and emotional features earlier than I may drop some pounds. Although I used to be, in accordance by the e-book, doing a whole lot of the proper weight loss program, and dietary supplements, and way of life issues, I feel my physique was consistently in a state of stress till I handled these underlying trauma elements. And I feel, from a scientific standpoint, my physique was largely in sympathetic nervous system. So for anybody not acquainted with these phrases, sympathetic could be like combat or flight, when your physique is in a scenario the place it thinks it wants to reply and have the ability to combat, or flee, or freeze. And through these sorts of conditions, the physique doesn’t must digest or be fertile or make hormones as a result of it’s centered on getting via an instantaneous disaster. However after we get in a sample of that and exist in that sympathetic state on a regular basis, it may trigger issues over the long-term. So, alternately, parasympathetic is the alternative when your physique is in a state of relaxation, and digest, and calm. And a whole lot of us simply don’t encounter that state sufficient in fashionable life. And there’s a whole lot of causes for that. Actually, it may be acute stress, or trauma, or psychological, or emotional stress.

However usually, issues that we could not understand as stress, per se, are making a stress response within the physique. So it is perhaps the incorrect sort of sunshine on the incorrect time of day. It is perhaps an excessive amount of or too little meals or dangerous substances in our meals or in the environment. It is perhaps a meals that we’re illiberal to. The physique can understand stress in a whole lot of other ways. And so entering into parasympathetic requires, usually pinpointing these elements and figuring them out. And similar to different features of well being, I feel they’re very, very a lot is a personalised side right here. I want I may simply give a guidelines. However sadly, I don’t suppose there may be one which applies to everybody. I feel there’s quite a lot of experimentation that comes into play right here. And I feel it requires addressing issues like stress ranges, like our respiratory, our sleep, our mild patterns, our weight loss program, all of these issues, and determining what’s gonna work. For me, among the elements which can be most useful are addressing mild. So getting exterior as quickly as attainable after waking up and spending even simply 30 minutes within the mild exterior. So interacting with mild, not via a window. It may be below a porch or pergola, however simply outside with out something between your eyeballs and the sunshine. And that helps get cortisol and melatonin rhythms within the right ranges on the proper time of day, which is a crucial signaling mechanism for hormones all through the remainder of the day. There’s additionally a whole lot of proof about noon mild and the way that impacts hormones. And Ari Whitten defined this actually, very well in a current podcast we did. I’ll hyperlink to that one as nicely. However principally, he makes a very sturdy case, that whilst you can develop into malnourished for those who don’t get sufficient meals, you possibly can develop into what he calls mal-illuminated from not getting sufficient mild. And lots of people are current in that state right this moment.

And so he makes a case for why we want noon solar for a few of those self same causes of essential hormone signaling and all the issues our physique wants to keep up optimum well being. So mild is an enormous one which comes into play there and that was actually useful for me. I additionally discovered once I was within the therapeutic part, that train was truly counterproductive or no less than sure sorts of train as a result of till I used to be in a position to relax that stress response, my physique perceived train as one other sort of stress. So I centered on mild motion versus train throughout that point and centered way more on relaxation, and restoration, and rebuilding my physique versus attempting to train to drop some pounds. And through my intensive weight reduction part, I actually didn’t do what could be thought-about formal train in any respect. I did stroll with pals fairly a bit or mild swimming. However I actually spent a whole lot of time simply within the sauna, which is a whole lot of the identical advantages as train, but additionally helps the physique get into that parasympathetic state and simply resting, recovering, sleeping, nourishing my physique, making a aware effort to undo a few of that stress and harm.

Let’s see, we’d contact on that a bit bit extra in a short time. There are additionally a whole lot of questions I discussed in passing, that I don’t do something daily and that I skip taking dietary supplements on the weekend. And the explanation for that, I first was given this recommendation by a health care provider named Dr. Petra in Switzerland at a clinic I studied at there. And her reasoning was that you just don’t ever need the physique to get fully used to any singular enter, together with a complement since you don’t need it to at all times assume that it’s gonna get one thing exogenously, particularly if it’s one thing your physique can create by itself. So her recommendation was simply skip dietary supplements on the weekend, which I do. However I additionally fluctuate my dietary supplements daily. So, once I get requested, “What do you’re taking lately?” It actually depends upon the day.

I’ll attempt to comparatively quickly spotlight on social media, only for per week, what a few of these completely different days of dietary supplements appear like. I’m hesitant to present a guidelines as a result of I’ve figured this out via my genes and thru a whole lot of experimentation. And I feel it’s extremely individualized. So, under no circumstances do I feel what has labored for me is gonna be the proper factor for you. And I don’t need anybody to simply attempt to apply a guidelines. I feel, on the finish of the day, we’re all our personal major healthcare supplier. And optimum well being is present in experimentation and determining what’s gonna work finest.

And that stated, I began by trying actually in-depth at my genes a few years in the past once I realized that none of those methods I used to be attempting from different individuals gave the impression to be fully working. And I feel I’m a really massive believer truly, that we will study one thing from each particular person we encounter, from each scenario we encounter. And from all of those consultants who’ve accomplished a lot analysis and examine, I feel there’s one thing to be realized from all of them. However on the finish of the day, I feel we’re accountable individually for determining how one can apply that and which components are gonna be most useful for every of us. So, I did a deep dive into my genes. I used diet genome, which I’ll hyperlink within the present notes as nicely. They usually provide you with an nearly 100-page report concerning the dietary features of your genes, some useful dietary supplements, some way of life elements. And that was a very useful start line. That was how I realized issues, as an illustration, like, that, I’m largely fast-twitch muscle dominant, and that I do significantly better with energy coaching and sprinting versus any sort of endurance cardio. That’s additionally the place I realized, as an illustration, I’ve many genes that make me naturally want extra choline and I additionally I’m illiberal to eggs. So, optimizing for that was completely life-changing for me, however may not be useful for everybody throughout the board in any respect.

I do take phosphatidylcholine, which was evening and day distinction. I take truly a number of types of choline. And people made an enormous distinction for me. That received’t be the case for everybody. I wanted sure B nutritional vitamins. And I feel there’s gonna be variation with these. I additionally watched my vitamin D ranges very fastidiously after getting that check, after which realized I had a a lot greater than common protein demand and that I don’t do nicely with saturated fats,
which is fascinating, as a result of I’ve had a put up for years about the advantages of saturated fats. And I do nonetheless consider that saturated fats was unfairly vilified, and that, typically, it’s completely not dangerous. However I additionally now suppose there are a whole lot of genetic variants there and that some individuals want roughly saturated fats. And I personally do higher with holding my fats consumption low to start with and my saturated fats consumption extraordinarily low. And that’s not gonna be the case for everyone. So I feel there’s a whole lot of variation there. Once more, the protein element ended up being a very massive factor for me. I feel all of us do want enough protein, however I feel the precise quantity varies very a lot from individual to individual. So beginning with Genex was actually useful to me, after which holding monitor of all of the issues I did every day to have the ability to pinpoint what was serving to and what wasn’t, was additionally an enormous half. So I’ve experimented with a whole lot of other ways to try this. I have a tendency to return to the Oura ring, which mine is charging proper now. However I might usually be carrying the aura ring, and it tracks sleep and issues like coronary heart price variability, restoration, exercise, and I can put notes in there about issues like sauna use and which dietary supplements I take in order that I can pinpoint patterns over time. I’ve additionally been engaged on an algorithm that does that in a bit bit extra element particular, particularly to nutrient timing and dietary supplements. And if I can ever get that absolutely found out, I’ll share that as nicely.

However all that to say, on the finish of the day, I feel it’s extraordinarily individualized and we every have to determine on our personal what these elements are gonna be. However I do suppose it’s essential to not get tailored to something and to present our physique a variety of inputs and to not give it the identical factor daily. There appears to be an growing tendency to get an increasing number of dogmatic on issues like weight loss program and dietary supplements, whether or not that be individuals turning into more and more dogmatic with keto, or carnivore, or plant-based. And like I stated, I feel there’s one thing to be realized from each a type of approaches, however I feel our our bodies had been designed to have metabolic flexibility and to have the ability to deal with a variety of inputs. And no less than, personally, I need my physique to have the ability to deal with days once I eat excessive carb, days once I eat no-carb, days once I work out so much, days once I don’t work out in any respect. I need my physique to have the ability to deal with all of that. So my aim is metabolic flexibility and that’s why I don’t do something each single day.

From a dietary perspective, protein might be my most constant, frequent dietary factor that I do. However I additionally don’t even do the identical nutrient timing or calorie consumption daily. So in all probability in the future per week, I’ll quick and never eat in any respect. Different days, I’ll eat in a seven to eight-hour window. After which no less than one or two days per week, I’ll do nearly like a feast day. I’d eat extra energy, particularly on exercise days, extra energy, extra protein, extra fats, extra carbs, and in an extended window to sign the physique that there’s nonetheless an abundance of meals. It doesn’t must downshift by metabolism. However I like to simply preserve my physique guessing. After which to trace and see what’s working extra time. The end result there may be that I’m now definitively consuming much more energy, much more energy than I used to be once I was attempting to drop some pounds years in the past. And I’ve misplaced weight way more simply. And I’m now understanding fueling my physique versus depriving it.

I’ve additionally discovered as I’ve elevated my exercises not too long ago that I’ve to devour sufficient energy. I’m not fasting practically as a lot and I’m listening to my physique on how a lot protein it wants and particularly how a lot carbs it wants. And so there will probably be nights the place I eat two massive candy potatoes to replenish after a very exhausting exercise. And I feel on the finish of the day, listening to our our bodies is basically, actually essential. And that’s the individualized element.

On that be aware, I’ve acquired a whole lot of questions as nicely about my present exercise routine. To preface this, I wanna make sure that I say, once more, throughout my intensive therapeutic part of Hashimoto’s and my intensive weight reduction part, I didn’t train in any respect. I rested and I moved very gently however I didn’t train. And I feel this was truly a very essential a part of that therapeutic for me as a result of it gave my physique time to get well. So I don’t advise the intensive exercises for anyone in that therapeutic part. And I don’t suppose it might have been useful to me then. That stated, now that my physique has reached, like, I’ve lowered my irritation, I’ve recovered from Hashimoto’s and I’ve reached my weight reduction objectives, I wished so as to add exercises again in with the intention of accelerating muscle and actually for enjoyable to have the ability to sustain with my youngsters as they get more and more lively and I’ve youngsters, they usually’re desirous to pole vault, and we’re doing way more lively household actions. So, this has been a more moderen side that I’m very a lot simply studying. My background is just not in health, and I don’t declare to be an professional on this in any respect, which is why I’m truly tagging together with some native athletes. So via the pole vaulting my youngsters are doing, we have now met some native athletes who’re coaching for the Olympics. And it’s been actually enjoyable to observe and study from them. The thought of coaching versus train as a result of they’re not simply attempting to create a sure power output per day to keep up a sure weight or one thing like that.

They’re coaching towards a aim. So that they’re attempting to extend pace and muscle. And so I made a decision to hitch them on this yr’s athletic principally monitor and discipline coaching program, and study from them as we go. So there are completely different phases of this and each two to 3 weeks, we go into a unique part of coaching. So we went via one referred to as, there was like an cardio part. We did a contralateral coaching with our mouths taped shut. So we needed to concentrate on nostril respiratory. And that was designed to extend endurance and cardio capability with out a whole lot of distance working or something like that. And from what I perceive, that program was created for monitor athletes who weren’t runners, so possibly throwers or I suppose like shotput, individuals like that, to extend their cardio base with out having to do a whole lot of issues like working that may be exhausting on the joints. And I observed a drastic improve in my cardio capability and talent, my lung capability from that part. We additionally with that did issues referred to as contralateral actions, which if you concentrate on the phrase, it means, like, shifting alternating sides of the physique. And I discovered that basically helped my stability and coordination fairly a bit. And so there have been components of that that had been on Monday, Wednesday, Fridays, after which there have been alternating issues on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays throughout that part. We simply accomplished the glycolytic part, which was designed to, for my understanding, improve or enhance that glycogen cycle with muscle tissues. So this one was enjoyable as a result of we alternated issues like isometric maintain, holding light-weight actions for 30 seconds for one spherical. After which the subsequent spherical doing the identical actions, however oscillating the weights as quickly as we may. And that was supposed to assist with, once more, that glycogen cycle and likewise with explosive energy from what I perceive. Like I stated, I’m nonetheless studying as I am going and not at all an professional on this, and I’ll share an increasing number of on social media as I am going via it.

The half that’s been actually placing to me up to now is how quickly the physique adapts. It’s completely unimaginable. These exercises that appear actually troublesome the primary time we do them, by the tip of a two week cycle, don’t actually appear that tough in any respect. And I’ve by no means gotten to observe my physique athletically adapt so rapidly or truly see muscle tone occur. So it’s been actually enjoyable to, once more, have that focus of coaching versus understanding and see the modifications in my physique. And we’ll be doing this via… I feel February or March is the coaching cycle. So I’m excited to proceed and see what that appears like over time. I’ll say I’m additionally for the primary time in my grownup life, very near having the ability to do pull-ups and chin-ups, which is tremendous thrilling. And I’ll positively be posting that on social media once I’m in a position to do it. And shortly can even be hopefully tackling my worry of being the other way up as a result of that tends to be an essential a part of pole vaulting as nicely.

So a number of questions on concierge medication and the physician I take advantage of. I’ll put this hyperlink within the present notes as nicely at wellnessmama.fm for any of you listening. However I take advantage of a service referred to as SteadyMD, which is a concierge medical follow accessible in all 50 states. And you’ve got 24/7 entry to your physician that is aware of your medical historical past via an app and likewise in emergency conditions via telephone or video chat. They usually have a pediatric possibility as nicely. So I’ve this and I take advantage of this for my complete household. Truly, I used to be gonna present you, but it surely’s acquired all my youngsters names in it. However I take advantage of this for my complete household and have channel on this app for every of my youngsters. And so you might add footage. They will do your exams with digital otoscopes. It’s been completely unimaginable for our household.

And since they’re at all times on name, I’ve been in a position to get labs to those docs, to get suggestions on labs via my physician, to get recommendation once I was really fizzling out of thyroid meds, and simply to at all times have a health care provider who is aware of my historical past, who’s in a position to reply inside 24 hours has been unimaginable.

A number of questions on egg-free breakfast concepts. Okay. So a bit little bit of a soapbox about this one. I’m nonetheless illiberal to eggs. I’m engaged on this, however I’ve had this intolerance for a very long time. So I’m not tremendous hopeful I’m gonna overcome it. However I proper now don’t devour eggs. Like I discussed, I do have the next than common genetic want for choline. So it’s one thing I complement with since egg yolks could be probably the most simple supply of pure choline.
However eggs are additionally quite common breakfast thought. And so with out eggs, I needed to get artistic about breakfast. And I get a whole lot of questions on this. Sadly, within the U.S., breakfast usually tends to be both simply eggs or excessive carb. And metabolically neither of these issues are literally very useful. The eggs will be as a result of getting protein within the morning is a crucial signaling mechanism for hormones. However if you’re avoiding the eggs, that will get harder. So my recommendation right here, my soapbox is, we have to cease pondering of meals as separate and several types of meals for several types of meals. The meals that we eat for lunch and dinner will be completely nice breakfast meals as nicely. So, I like to recommend leftovers as an easy low-stress breakfast or
simply creating stir-fries and soups such as you would for another meal. After all, for those who may tolerate eggs, these are an important protein supply as nicely. However I discover that protein and veggies are nice for any meal, together with breakfast.

A number of Hashimoto’s associated questions, particularly associated to fasting with Hashimoto’s and to how I acquired my Hashimoto’s in remission. I’ll hyperlink to some posts that I’ve written about this. Once more, the caveat, you’re gonna get bored with me saying this, however I feel it’s very individualized. I do suppose there’s an irritation element. So I feel for anybody with any autoimmune illness, it’s gonna be determining your elements of decreasing that irritation to let your physique get well. However the physique’s pure state is to be wholesome. So it’s sort of about I discovered getting out of our personal option to get well. I did use the AIP weight loss program for some time to start with. And I feel that was useful in decreasing irritation. I additionally suppose that addressing trauma and coping with the interior stuff was actually enormous key for me with irritation that hopefully is not going to be an element for everyone. I hope that most individuals don’t need to work via that like I did. But when that may be a issue, I feel it’s an essential one, to coping with any sort of power illness. And I additionally do suppose there’s an enormous individualized element right here as nicely. A variety of sources will inform you that premenopausal girls mustn’t quick or intermittent quick. A variety of sources will inform you that individuals with thyroid issues mustn’t quick or intermittent quick. And I feel for some individuals, that recommendation is essential and really true. I truly adopted that recommendation for lots of years. However via experimentation, I’ve discovered and my genes, I do nice with fasting and with intermittent fasting in varied types. However I don’t suppose that’s true for everybody. So, once more, it goes again to we’re every our personal major healthcare supplier and we’re every answerable for determining these elements which can be going to be most useful for us.

I do follow some type of time-restricted consuming nearly daily. But in addition all of us do, until you’re consuming whilst you’re sleeping. We’re all consuming inside a sure feeding window and we’re not consuming whereas we’re sleeping. So, everyone practices some type of intermittent fasting. It’s simply the size that we try this and the variation. There’s some superb researchers like Dr. Sasha Panda, who concentrate on analysis on time-restricted consuming. They usually have discovered, as an illustration, fairly drastic reductions in most cancers danger in sufferers who practiced time-restricted consuming repeatedly, which implies consuming in a shortened window, which could possibly be a 12-hour window, not that much-shortened window. It could possibly be Eight to 10-hour window. And there’s gonna be variations there for everyone. I don’t suppose it’s as clear lower. Any individual requested, “I’ve Hashimoto’s and I intermittent quick 16, 8,” which implies fasting for 16 hours and consuming inside an 8-hour window, which is usually what I do. They requested, “Is that this not good?” And I don’t suppose it’s as easy. I feel only a few issues in life and in well being are easy nearly as good versus unhealthy. I feel it’s experimentation and personalization. It’s been very useful for me. I don’t suppose that’s gonna be true throughout the board.

A number of questions on carnivore weight loss program. That is an space I’m positively not an professional and I don’t even have very a lot first-hand expertise. I did simply interview Paul Saladino. And I’ll hyperlink to that within the present notes if it has aired. If not, preserve a watch out for that quickly. Actually, that is gaining reputation proper now. I do know that there’s a medical examine within the works that they’re engaged on funding for proper now. And it appears to be very useful for lots of people, no less than within the short-term, which is smart as a result of it may doubtlessly actually drastically assist scale back irritation and provides the physique a break and likewise improve protein, which I discussed already, I feel is a crucial signaling mechanism for hormones. That stated, even Dr. Saladino, once I interviewed him, stated he doesn’t know that very strict carnivore weight loss program is gonna be helpful for girls for the long-term. So, once more, I feel we will study one thing from each strategy. I feel it’s an incredible instrument that to have within the toolkit, particularly for short-term that it may assist some individuals. However on the finish of the day, I feel we every have to determine what’s going to work for us.

A number of different very particular thyroid-related questions on testing and ranges. I’ll put my posts that go extra into depth within the present notes as nicely. However some assets I like to recommend for that, Dr. Alan Christianson, and Dr. Isabella Wentz, each have web sites and books with much more in-depth info than I may share in a single podcast. Isabella Wentz has a e-book about root reason behind Hashimoto’s. And he or she was an enormous a part of me determining these puzzle items for myself. I’m very, very massive fan of her work. And I feel she has a whole lot of that very same mindset of serving to individuals every establish their very own root causes versus giving a prescriptive system. And so I feel that’s a very useful start line.

A number of complement associated questions as nicely. Like I stated, I’ll share some generalities within the present notes at wellnessmama.fm of issues I take repeatedly or comparatively usually. However I don’t take something daily. And I’ll simply put some normal notes in there as nicely, making notes to myself whereas I do that. One other factor I’ve been experimenting on the be aware of dietary supplements with is nootropic stacks, simply to, like, for focus of power and a whole lot of new initiatives on my plate proper now. And a few issues I can share with you guys fairly quickly. Once more, I don’t suppose these are useful for everybody. Undoubtedly verify together with your physician. I don’t suppose you possibly can take these for those who’re pregnant or breastfeeding, however I’ve been actually having fun with a mixture of ALA and Alpha-GPC, and a few others that I alternate every day for the nootropic and mind advantages. These I discovered actually helped with power and focus, and don’t intrude with my sleep. So I’ll put some notes about that within the present notes. However these additionally, my genes are particularly receptive to. I don’t suppose they’re gonna be nice for everyone.

Any individual requested, “What stress-relieving strategies have you ever discovered probably the most impactful?” I’ll say, “I feel, all of it begins with sleep.” I feel sleep makes every little thing else we do within the identify of well being simpler.
