Plants get their energy from sunlight. And humans get theirs from food.
There was no overlap.
The abundant energy from the sun was thought to be pretty much useless for us mammals. Plants got it all to themselves. And we got to eat the plants, of course.
But is it really that simple?
Well, according to research out of Columbia University Medical Center, there is a considerable possibility that animals (including humans) may be “solar powered”.
In other words, when we consume green vegetables, the chlorophyll metabolites appear to enter the mitochondria, where they work together with sunlight to supercharge energy production in our cells.
Maybe THAT explains the energy boost we get from juicing, drinking more green smoothies, and pumping up our green veggie consumption.
It’s definitely possible. And the science is beginning to back it up!
On today’s episode of Underground Wellness Radio, Sayer Ji — Depression Sessions presenter and founder of GreenMedInfo — reveals a new paradigm in human energy production that will make you think twice about skipping your veggies.
Fascinating stuff, for sure.

You can be a vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, fruitarian, or … whatever.
As long as you’re eating real food, I’m happy.
Because wasting my time and energy arguing over food is something I gave up a long, long time ago.
But … when a guest comes on my podcast paying homage to The China Study and pointing the finger at meat consumption for our heart disease epidemic, I have no choice but to speak up.
Respectfully, of course.
On this week’s episode of Underground Wellness Radio, author and fellow podcaster Rich Roll stops by to share his incredible story of overcoming alcoholism and food addiction to become not only a staunch vegan, but one of the fittest people on the planet.
This is certainly one of the more candid discussions we’ve ever had on the podcast.
The logical solution is to eat even less and exercise even more. But that won’t fix it. Never has, never will.
Nor will it fix those “stubborn problem areas” that don’t seem to budge. Lower body fat and arm jiggle, for women. Love handles and belly/chest fat in men.
Like Father Time, your metabolism never loses. Unless…
In today’s episode of Underground Wellness Radio, our friend Dr. Jade Teta, co-author of Lose Weight Here, reveals how you can work WITH your metabolism to lose weight permanently and target those problem areas.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
* Why alternating between periods of “eating less, exercising less” and “eating more, exercising more” sidesteps the starvation signals that slow down your metabolism.
* Beta receptors and alpha receptors. The science behind stubborn fat cells. (And what to do about them!)
* The male 6-pack abs formula: (P + V) x (Sl + IE)
* Specific supplements for targeting lower-body fat in women.
