Podcast #289:
The #1 Life Lesson I Ever Learned.

From impossible to the possible

Quick story for ya.

It was the Spring of 1996 — freshman year of college.

I was hanging out in front of the dorm with my roommate and one of his fraternity brothers, complaining about about my professors and a brutal round of midterm exams coming up.

You see, exams were just two weeks away and according to my syllabi I had 4 (yes, four) midterms scheduled on one day.

Back to back to back to back.

I went on and on criticizing my professors, each of whom seemed to act like their class was the ONLY class I was taking.

They were setting me up to fail.

It wasn’t fair!

Then, when my 10-minute grumble finally came to an end, the frat bro looked at me and said this:

Podcast 247: Holistic Digestion with Andrea Nakayama

Unknown-1by Sean Croxton

Sorry!

I’m a week behind on show notes. My bad.



Last week, I took a trip to the Bay Area and to Portland to film presentations for my upcoming project, The Second Opinion Series Volume One: The Thyroid Sessions.

I got to hang out with really cool peeps like Chris Kresser, Dr. Dan Kalish, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Nora Gedgaudas, and last week’s podcast guest Andrea Nakayama. 

Stay tuned for more info!


Andrea is crazy smart and she’s the master of “backing it up” — in other words, peeling back the layers and getting to the root cause of health challenges.



On last week’s show, she and I chatted about one of my favorite topics, digestion.



Because anything having to do with poop is a-okay on my book! :)

Here’s what you’ll learn…

The Podcast About Scientific Fat Loss Facts and Stuff…

by Sean Croxton

It doesn’t work.

I wonder at what point will we collective realize that the calories-in/calories-out approach to weight loss is a ginormous FAIL.

Consider this for a moment. According to last Thursday’s UW Radio guest Jonathan Bailor, people who quit smoking cold turkey have a 5.5% chance of success. Meanwhile, losing fat long-term by eating less and exercising more has a success rate of 4.6%.

Ouch.

In other words, the odds of losing weight and keeping it off are worse than if you quit a highly-addictive substance with zero assistance, treatment, or strategy.

Good luck on that 1200-calorie diet and endless treadmill program!

In fact, both factors — the low-cal diet and chronic cardio — are sealing the deal on your eventual rebound weight gain, as they create hormonal turmoil — and malnutrition — within the body.

And fat loss has a whole LOT more to do with hormones than it has to do with calories.

That’s what Mr. Bailor — a former frustrated personal trainer like myself — found while spending ten years of his life hanging out with top researchers and reviewing over 11,000 articles and more than 10,000 pages of fat loss research.

He found the facts.

Fortunately for us, he wrote them all down in a way that just about all of us can comprehend in his mind-blowing book The Smarter Science of Slim.
