Katie: Whats up, 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 if you happen to haven’t tried them but. And we’ve dry shampoo as effectively. You’ll be able to try all of that at wellnesse.com. That’s wellness with an E on the top.

And this episode, I’m going to deal with a bunch of generally requested questions. In reality, 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 could be much more environment friendly if I simply jumped in right here and answered them in real-time as a podcast episode. I obtained numerous questions associated to protein consumption. And numerous these are follow-ups to a weblog put up I lately printed about my weight reduction during the last couple of years and the way protein was a giant a part of this equation for me. I’ll guarantee that put up is linked within the present notes. However the quick model is that I discovered I used to be really not consuming sufficient energy. And a part of I feel when my physique was having bother reducing weight, apart from 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 internal mental-emotional work that I did that I talked about intimately in Episode 309, which I may also hyperlink to, however then I additionally needed to make a acutely 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 intention for about 120 grams of protein per day. Sometimes, I don’t do the identical factor on daily basis. 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 intention to get a minimum of 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 in addition one thing that previous podcast visitor, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, talks about as an necessary hormonal signaling mechanism for ladies. I’ll guarantee that we hyperlink to her podcast as effectively. 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 also be tied to muscle, our predictors of longevity and have lowered threat of all types of well being issues. So protein, a minimum of for me, has been an important part. I obtained numerous questions associated to how do I eat sufficient protein? I’ve experimented loads with this. And I’ve a number of issues that appeared to actually assist. I take aminos from Kion fairly typically. It’s like a liquid or powder that you just add to water. And that’s an entire amino complement. And that appears to actually 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 most likely heard me earlier than discuss issues like sardines, that are one in all my go-to’s for positive. A number of days per week, my lunch, together with in the present day, was sardines, with salad in entrance of you guys. I can really present you that’s what my lunch appears to be like like numerous days as a result of it’s cheap and excessive protein.

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

Considerably associated to this, I obtained numerous comply with up questions, together with one, are you able to talk about 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 cope with the psychological and emotional features earlier than I might drop some weight. Despite the fact that I used to be, in accordance by the ebook, doing numerous the suitable eating regimen, and dietary supplements, and way of life issues, I feel my physique was continually in a state of stress till I handled these underlying trauma components. And I feel, from a scientific standpoint, my physique was largely in sympathetic nervous system. So for anybody not conversant in these phrases, sympathetic could be like battle or flight, when your physique is in a state of affairs the place it thinks it wants to reply and have the ability to battle, or flee, or freeze. And through these varieties of conditions, the physique doesn’t have to digest or be fertile or make hormones as a result of it’s centered on getting via a direct disaster. However once we get in a sample of that and exist in that sympathetic state on a regular basis, it will possibly trigger issues over the long-term. So, alternately, parasympathetic is the other when your physique is in a state of relaxation, and digest, and calm. And numerous us simply don’t encounter that state sufficient in fashionable life. And there’s numerous causes for that. Definitely, it may be acute stress, or trauma, or psychological, or emotional stress.

However typically, issues that we might not understand as stress, per se, are making a stress response within the physique. So it could be the incorrect sort of sunshine on the incorrect time of day. It could be an excessive amount of or too little meals or dangerous substances in our meals or in our surroundings. It could be a meals that we’re illiberal to. The physique can understand stress in numerous alternative ways. And so moving into parasympathetic requires, typically pinpointing these components and figuring them out. And identical to different features of well being, I feel they’re very, very a lot is a customized side right here. I want I might simply give a guidelines. However sadly, I don’t suppose there’s 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 eating regimen, all of these issues, and determining what’s gonna work. For me, a number of the components which can be most useful are addressing mild. So getting exterior as quickly as attainable after waking up and spending even simply half-hour within the mild exterior. So interacting with mild, not via a window. It may be below a porch or pergola, however simply outdoor with out something between your eyeballs and the sunshine. And that helps get cortisol and melatonin rhythms within the appropriate ranges on the proper time of day, which is a vital signaling mechanism for hormones all through the remainder of the day. There’s additionally numerous 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 effectively. However principally, he makes a very robust case, that whilst you can grow to be malnourished if you happen to don’t get sufficient meals, you may grow to be what he calls mal-illuminated from not getting sufficient mild. And lots of people are present in that state in the present day.

And so he makes a case for why we want noon solar for a few of those self same causes of necessary hormone signaling and the entire issues our physique wants to take care of optimum well being. So mild is a giant one which comes into play there and that was actually useful for me. I additionally discovered after I was within the therapeutic part, that train was really counterproductive or a minimum of sure varieties of train as a result of till I used to be capable of relax that stress response, my physique perceived train as one other sort of stress. So I centered on light motion versus train throughout that point and centered rather more on relaxation, and restoration, and rebuilding my physique versus making an attempt to train to drop some weight. 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 mates fairly a bit or light swimming. However I actually spent numerous time simply within the sauna, which is numerous 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 acutely aware effort to undo a few of that stress and injury.

Let’s see, we would contact on that somewhat bit extra in a short while. There are additionally numerous questions I discussed in passing, that I don’t do something on daily basis and that I skip taking dietary supplements on the weekend. And the rationale for that, I first was given this recommendation by a physician 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 all the time 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 on daily basis. So, after I get requested, “What do you’re taking nowadays?” It actually will depend on 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 to be. I’m hesitant to present a guidelines as a result of I’ve figured this out via taking a look at my genes and thru numerous experimentation. And I feel it’s extremely individualized. So, under no circumstances do I feel what has labored for me is gonna be the suitable 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 mentioned, I began by wanting actually in-depth at my genes a few years in the past after I realized that none of those methods I used to be making an attempt from different individuals gave the impression to be fully working. And I feel I’m a really huge believer really, that we are able to be taught one thing from each individual we encounter, from each state of affairs we encounter. And from all of those consultants who’ve completed a lot analysis and research, 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 the best way to apply that and which elements 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 effectively. They usually offer you an virtually 100-page report in regards to the dietary features of your genes, some useful dietary supplements, some way of life components. And that was a very useful place to begin. That was how I realized issues, as an illustration, like, that, I’m largely fast-twitch muscle dominant, and that I do a lot 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 really a number of types of choline. And people made a giant 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 increased than common protein demand and that I don’t do effectively with saturated fats,
which is attention-grabbing, as a result of I’ve had a put up for years about the advantages of saturated fats. And I do nonetheless imagine that saturated fats was unfairly vilified, and that, on the whole, it’s completely not dangerous. However I additionally now suppose there are numerous genetic variants there and that some individuals want roughly saturated fats. And I personally do higher with retaining 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 numerous variation there. Once more, the protein part ended up being a very huge factor for me. I feel all of us do want sufficient 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 retaining monitor of all of the issues I did day by day to have the ability to pinpoint what was serving to and what wasn’t, was additionally a giant half. So I’ve experimented with numerous alternative 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 charge 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 somewhat bit extra element particular, particularly to nutrient timing and dietary supplements. And if I can ever get that totally found out, I’ll share that as effectively.

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 components are gonna be. However I do suppose it’s necessary to not get tailored to something and to present our physique a variety of inputs and to not give it the identical factor on daily basis. There appears to be an rising tendency to get increasingly dogmatic on issues like eating regimen 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 mentioned, 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 a minimum of, personally, I need my physique to have the ability to deal with days after I eat excessive carb, days after I eat no-carb, days after I work out loads, days after I don’t work out in any respect. I need my physique to have the ability to deal with all of that. So my objective 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 on daily basis. So most likely at some point 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 a minimum of one or two days per week, I’ll do virtually 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 have to downshift by metabolism. However I like to simply maintain my physique guessing. After which to trace and see what’s working extra time. The end result there’s that I’m now definitively consuming much more energy, much more energy than I used to be after I was making an attempt to drop some weight years in the past. And I’ve misplaced weight rather more simply. And I’m now understanding fueling my physique versus depriving it.

I’ve additionally discovered as I’ve elevated my exercises lately that I’ve to eat 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 might be nights the place I eat two huge candy potatoes to replenish after a very onerous exercise. And I feel on the finish of the day, listening to our our bodies is actually, actually necessary. And that’s the individualized part.

On that be aware, I’ve obtained numerous questions as effectively about my present exercise routine. To preface this, I wanna be sure 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 really a very necessary 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 mentioned, 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 children as they get more and more energetic and I’ve youngsters, they usually’re eager to pole vault, and we’re doing rather more energetic household actions. So, this has been a more recent side that I’m very a lot simply studying. My background is just not in health, and I don’t declare to be an knowledgeable on this in any respect, which is why I’m really tagging together with some native athletes. So via the pole vaulting my children are doing, we’ve met some native athletes who’re coaching for the Olympics. And it’s been actually enjoyable to look at and be taught from them. The concept of coaching versus train as a result of they’re not simply making an attempt to create a sure power output per day to take care of a sure weight or one thing like that.

They’re coaching towards a objective. So that they’re making an attempt to extend velocity and muscle. And so I made a decision to affix them on this 12 months’s athletic principally monitor and subject coaching program, and be taught from them as we go. So there are completely different phases of this and each two to a few weeks, we go into a unique part of coaching. So we went via one known 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 numerous distance operating 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 numerous issues like operating that may be onerous 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 known as contralateral actions, which if you concentrate on the phrase, it means, like, transferring alternating sides of the physique. And I discovered that actually helped my stability and coordination fairly a bit. And so there have been elements 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 mass. 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 might. And that was supposed to assist with, once more, that glycogen cycle and in addition with explosive energy from what I perceive. Like I mentioned, I’m nonetheless studying as I am going and certainly not an knowledgeable on this, and I’ll share increasingly on social media as I am going via it.

The half that’s been actually placing to me to date is how quickly the physique adapts. It’s completely unbelievable. These exercises that appear actually troublesome the primary time we do them, by the top of a two week cycle, don’t actually appear that onerous in any respect. And I’ve by no means gotten to look at my physique athletically adapt so shortly or really see muscle tone occur. So it’s been actually enjoyable to, once more, have that focus of coaching versus figuring out 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 after I’m capable of do it. And shortly may also be hopefully tackling my worry of being the other way up as a result of that tends to be an necessary a part of pole vaulting as effectively.

So a number of questions on concierge medication and the physician I exploit. I’ll put this hyperlink within the present notes as effectively at wellnessmama.fm for any of you listening. However I exploit a service known as SteadyMD, which is a concierge medical apply out there 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 in addition in emergency conditions via cellphone or video chat. They usually have a pediatric possibility as effectively. So I’ve this and I exploit this for my entire household. Really, I used to be gonna present you, however it’s obtained all my children names in it. However I exploit this for my entire household and have channel on this app for every of my children. And so you might add footage. They’ll do your exams with digital otoscopes. It’s been completely unbelievable for our household.

And since they’re all the time on name, I’ve been capable of get labs to those docs, to get suggestions on labs via my physician, to get recommendation after I was petering out of thyroid meds, and simply to all the time have a physician who is aware of my historical past, who’s capable of reply inside 24 hours has been unbelievable.

A number of questions on egg-free breakfast concepts. Okay. So somewhat 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 eat 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 inventive about breakfast. And I get numerous questions on this. Sadly, within the U.S., breakfast typically 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 vital signaling mechanism for hormones. However if you’re avoiding the eggs, that will get tougher. So my recommendation right here, my soapbox is, we have to cease considering 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 effectively. So, I like to recommend leftovers as a very simple low-stress breakfast or
simply creating stir-fries and soups such as you would for every other meal. In fact, if you happen to might tolerate eggs, these are an important protein supply as effectively. 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 obtained 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 uninterested in me saying this, however I feel it’s very individualized. I do suppose there’s an irritation part. So I feel for anybody with any autoimmune illness, it’s gonna be determining your components of decreasing that irritation to let your physique get well. However the physique’s pure state is to be wholesome. So it’s form of about I discovered getting out of our personal method to get well. I did use the AIP eating regimen for some time at first. And I feel that was useful in decreasing irritation. I additionally suppose that addressing trauma and coping with the internal stuff was actually enormous key for me with irritation that hopefully won’t be an element for everyone. I hope that most individuals don’t must work via that like I did. But when that may be a issue, I feel it’s an necessary one, to coping with any form of continual illness. And I additionally do suppose there’s an enormous individualized part right here as effectively. A number of sources will inform you that premenopausal girls shouldn’t quick or intermittent quick. A number of sources will inform you that individuals with thyroid issues shouldn’t quick or intermittent quick. And I feel for some individuals, that recommendation is essential and really true. I really adopted that recommendation for lots of years. However via experimentation, I’ve discovered and taking a look at my genes, I do nice with fasting and with intermittent fasting in numerous varieties. 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 liable for determining these components which can be going to be most useful for us.

I do apply some type of time-restricted consuming virtually on daily basis. But in addition all of us do, except 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 do 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 threat 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 8 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 commonly 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 pretty much 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 eating regimen. That is an space I’m positively not an knowledgeable 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, maintain a watch out for that quickly. Definitely, that is gaining recognition proper now. I do know that there’s a scientific research within the works that they’re engaged on funding for proper now. And it appears to be very useful for lots of people, a minimum of within the short-term, which is sensible as a result of it will possibly doubtlessly actually drastically assist scale back irritation and provides the physique a break and in addition improve protein, which I discussed already, I feel is a vital signaling mechanism for hormones. That mentioned, even Dr. Saladino, after I interviewed him, mentioned he doesn’t know that very strict carnivore eating regimen is gonna be useful for ladies for the long-term. So, once more, I feel we are able to be taught one thing from each strategy. I feel it’s an incredible device that to have within the toolkit, particularly for short-term that it will possibly 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 effectively. 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 data than I might share in a single podcast. Isabella Wentz has a ebook about root explanation for Hashimoto’s. And he or she was a giant a part of me determining these puzzle items for myself. I’m very, very huge fan of her work. And I feel she has numerous 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 place to begin.

A number of complement associated questions as effectively. Like I mentioned, I’ll share some generalities within the present notes at wellnessmama.fm of issues I take repeatedly or comparatively typically. However I don’t take something on daily basis. And I’ll simply put some common notes in there as effectively, 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 numerous 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 examine along with your physician. I don’t suppose you may take these if you happen to’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 day by day for the nootropic and mind advantages. These I discovered actually helped with power and focus, and don’t intervene 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 more practical. So, you guys know this and I’ve written about it loads earlier than, however optimize your sleep setting and optimize your sleep high quality, monitor it if you could, however begin there as a result of that’s gonna make your eating regimen more practical, It’s gonna make dietary supplements more practical.
