“This Is What Happens to Your Brain and Body When You Check Your Phone Before Bed”

sleep

Here’s a cool short video on the potential problems with checking your phone before bed. It can mess up your sleep – and sleep is supremely important for your mental performance and for your health.

Personally I cheat a bit. I regularly read books on my smartphone as I’m getting ready for sleep. But I use the Kindle app with black background and white text. Plus I minimize the brightness of the screen and text. I can still comfortably read in a pitch dark room, but there’s a minimal amount of light and I tend to get sleepy and fall asleep pretty fast.

Low-Carb Performance

Can you exercise without eating lots of carbs? Can a smart low-carb diet even IMPROVE some aspects of your physical performance, lowering your excess weight while increasing your fat-burning and your endurance?

These ideas used to be heresy, but now there are athletes out there proving that it works – in some cases completely destroying their competition. Athletes are now breaking records, doing what was once considered impossible.

Professor Stephen Phinney have been researching and testing these ideas for a long time. I recently sat down with him for this interview. In it, Professor Phinney discusses the basics behind low-carb performance, who can benefit the most from it – and how to do it right.

You can watch the first 12 minutes above.

More knowledge

There’s an 18-minute second part to the interview, where Professor Phinney goes through many more practical tips and answers common questions. This second part is on the membership pages (free one month trial).

How to Get Free from Food Addiction

Are you addicted to sweets, chocolate, ice cream, sandwiches or something else? Do you have a hard time controlling your thoughts of these kinds of food? Do you want to free yourself from the addiction? Then watch this video.

LCHF for Type 1 Diabetes?

Woman Checking Blood Sugar Level At Home

Lots of people realize that LCHF works wonders for type 2 diabetes. But what about type 1 diabetes?

This is a completely different kind of disease, and yet many people find that the same LCHF diet works really well for type 1 diabetes too, dramatically lowering insulin requirements and allowing a much more stable and easily controlled blood sugar. And it actually makes perfect sense.

We interviewed two people with type 1 diabetes on the recent cruise who have revolutionized their health eating LCHF. These interviews will be posted as soon as they are edited. We’re also going to write much more on the topic later.

If you’re interested in reading more right away check out this new blog post by Dr. Jason Fung: LCHF for Type 1 Diabetes. Or read my earlier posts on it.

The Big Fat Surprise

Does butter, meat and cheese belong in a healthy diet? And if so, how come we’ve been told the opposite for decades?

Here’s my recent interview with NYT bestselling author Nina Teicholz. Her book “The Big Fat Surprise” was called one of the best books of last year by publications like The Economist and The Wall Street Journal.

It’s a fascinating story. You can watch the first six minutes of our interview above.

Full Interview and More

If you want to watch the full longer interview – and a follow-up interview on the unintended and unfortunate dangers of new vegetable oils – they’re available on the membership site (free trial one month).

Watch the Movie That Exposes the Cholesterol Cover-Up

Is high cholesterol the main cause of heart disease? Are cholesterol-lowering drugs miracle drugs, nearly free of side-effects, that the majority of the adult population needs to take every day?

This movie exposes the exaggerations and the grossly misleading marketing of daily medications to people who don’t need them. That is, most people who take cholesterol-lowering drugs without having heart disease. That’s when the risk of bad side effects (that are silenced) usually outweighs the benefit.

There’s another problem: total focus on cholesterol is profitable for the pharmaceutical industry, but it sucks energy from all other effective lifestyle changes to prevent heart disease. Real health is not to be found in a bottle of pills.

Statin Nation

The movie Statin Nation does a good job of providing information about the cholesterol cover-up. We are now able to stream the movie online for our members (free trial available).

You can watch the trailer above. Watch the full movie here: Statin Nation (for members).
