Keto: Lindsay Taylor, Ph.D., Co-Author of Keto Passport

Keto Passport is a fabulous new international cookbook written by Lindsay with Layla McGowan. This dynamic duo also co-authored the Keto Reset Instapot CookbookKeto Passport offers an opportunity to bust loose from the confines and staleness of ketogenic eating, where you feel like all you can eat is meat and vegetables. 

Keto Passport takes you across the entire globe with fabulous cultural recipes, including traditional favorites that were carefully modified to remain keto friendly. Lindsay, a social psychologist, says people get bored, stifled, or frustrated with the keto guidelines, and that keeping things from getting stale and less enjoyable is essential for continued adherence to admittedly tight dietary parameters. Layla brings in her Korean and German heritage to the project, sharing familial meals passed down verbally for generations right into this cookbook. The pair also curated many familiar cultural favorites that happen to be keto.

Lindsay also weaves in some excellent health insights for how to do keto the right way, and to understand how to navigate the various recommendations and approaches to keto. One item of interest is how insulin ain’t all bad. In fact, Lindsay explains that pulsatile insulin spikes are desirable. Insulin allows you to replenish cellular energy but not suffer from the inflammatory effects and compromised fat burning of chronically excessive insulin production.

Endurance: Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, Part 1

Host Brad Kearns talks about transforming once and for all away from the high-stress, mileage obsessed approach to an evolved approach that makes recovery the central focus of your training instead of suffering and enduring. And by the way endurance athletes, its time to turn off the endurance gene off the race course and quit enduring crappy jobs and toxic relationship dynamics. Be good to yourself and honor the importance of balancing stress and rest. If you experience a slight disturbance in immune function, don't train at all! Avoid black hole workouts and be okay with lowering your heart rate way below MAF, you still get an awesome training effect. Brad talks about his recent experiences with overdoing his beloved Speedgolf and experiencing burnout and getting less consistent with cardio workouts to allow for more energy allocation to explosive workouts, which is the topic of part 2 of this important show

Keto: Dr. Lindsay Taylor on Silly Six-Packs And Going By Feel Instead of Appearance

Host Brad Kearns and Dr. Lindsay finally capture some of the magic that happens during their random off-mic conversations. Yep, Brad pushed the record button and Lindsay immediately throws out some profound philosophical and psychological questions to ponder. Is body composition a worthwhile goal, or are we placing too much importance on how we look instead of how we feel? The intuitive eating/body positivity movement has tremendous merit, but do we engage in too many rationalizations and self-defeating behaviors as life gets easier and easier? 

Striving for balance is important, but what if you really want the six-pack? Is it you that wants it, or is it society telling you to want it? It’s undisputable that it’s better to be in control of your destiny than to succumb to manipulative social media programming, and excess body fat is often a symptom of lifestyle flaws that are compromising your happiness, health, fitness, and longevity. Its important to reach some basic fitness and health standards to avoid the pain and suffering of aging.
