#61 How Do Actors Keep Themselves in Shape with Keto - William Shewfelt

Ever seen these famous actors with great physiques and bodies? Well, they do work hard for their roles but at the same time they're kinda putting in more effort than is necessary.

William Shewfelt starred the Red Ranger in the Power Rangers Ninja Steel TV series and he's in an amazing shape. Guess what, he's not enslaving himself at the gym for hours doing cardio or eating dry chicken breast and broccoli. Instead, he's doing the ketogenic diet with one meal a day and looks better than most of his peers.

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. I'm your host Siim Land and our guest is William Shewfelt. He's a young and uprising actor who's involved with fitness, motivating people, speaking, social media, and acting on screen.

#60 Lessons About Optimal Recovery with the OURA Team

July 10, 2018

Are you feeling stressed out, taxed to the max, too busy, slightly brain fogged, fatigued, or even depressed? 
Chances are you're under-recovered and suffering from mild adrenal exhaustion.

I like to think of myself as a high performer - I get a lot of things done and I'm very productive with my day.
However, I also like to think of myself as a high performing recoverer - I value recovery and relaxation because I know it's so important

In this episode of the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast, I'm your host Siim Land but I'm also the one being interviewed. It's a very interesting conversation with the OURA Ring team about peak performance and optimal recovery.

#54 Biohacking the Ketogenic Diet with John Limansky MD

June 5, 2018

What happens if you eat a high protein diet? Will you get diabetes, or build lean muscle while burning fat?

Why are most doctors fat and they're giving bad advice to people about nutrition and health?

Given how many people are already diabetic and how many more are soon to become one, it's safe to say that modern mainstream medicine needs to go through some serious paradigm shifts and changes in the dietary recommendations. Fortunately, there are some healthcare practitioners who go against the grain and actually deliver positive results to their patients.

That's the topic of today's Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. I'm your host Siim Land and our guest is the biohacking MD John Limansky. John is a board-certified physician of internal medicine who’s worked with hundreds of patients who suffer from disease, pain, and other health issues. His approach focuses on nutrition and he’s a big proponent of the ketogenic diet.

 Timestamps:

  • Why mainstream medicine hasn't caught up with what's actually a healthy diet 04:20
  • What are common characteristics of good nutrition 11:40
  • John's High Protein Experiment with Jimmy Moore 16:30
  • John's thoughts on intermittent fasting 29:50
  • Is it necessary to combine fasting with keto 38:30
  • The problem with mainstream medicine and the individual's health 52:10

#52 Ketosis and Exercise Performance (SCIENCE EXPLAINED)

May 30, 2018

Since the 1960s it was thought that a high carbohydrate diet maintained physical performance and muscle glycogen by preventing muscle glycogen depletion induced fatigue.

I.E. You need carbs before the workout to give yourself energy, during the workout to not bonk, after the workout to recover from the exertion, and at any other time of the day as well because otherwise you’ll hit the wall and go into starvation modeHowever, this can be misinterpreted and taken out of context.

Can you train hard on the ketogenic diet?
How does ketosis affect performance?
Will my muscles dissolve into a big chunk of wobbly jello if I don’t eat carbs after working out?
This and many more in this episode of the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast.
I'm your host Siim Land and we're going to delve into the science of ketogenic exercise performance.
