The Model Health Show: Nutrition | Exercise | Fitness | Health | Lifestyle

Keeping up with the Joneses is not just reserved for material objects. Today, more than ever, keeping up with the Joneses means measuring up with your body and physical appearance as well.

For decades, if you wanted to fit in with the fitness “in” crowd, slim and lean was the standard. Think, Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, Brad Pitt in Fight Club, and Robin Givens in Boomerang. No rolls, no back fat, no thick thunder thighs were welcome. In fact, having too much thickness just might make other people uncomfortable. All the while, ultra-slim models can prance around essentially naked, and no one bats an eye.

Now, just to be clear, being super slim and lean is not the problem. That’s absolutely awesome for some people! But, who decided that that was the definition of what healthy looks like?

What we’ve come to accept as the ideal picture of health has led to a lot of body dysmorphia, and a subtle to strong belief that we’re just not good enough.

You may eat healthy most of the time, workout consistently, get plenty of sleep, and even meditate occasionally. But, because your body doesn’t look like “their” body, you just don’t realize how amazing you actually are.

Today, I want to make a change in the way that we view health and fitness. And to help make that change possible, I brought on one of the very best people making a stand to show that health and fitness has a lot of beautiful variety. Lita Lewis is my special guest, and she’s here to share her incredible story and show you how she’s been inspiring a fitness movement by being authentically herself. Enjoy!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why comparing ourselves to other people inherently negates our own value.
  • One of the few medicinal herbs that is proven to increase stamina.
  • How Lita Lewis won a medal at the Olympics at an unbelievably young age.

  • How Lita was finally able to embrace her body (curves, muscles, and all).
  • What sparked Lita’s mission of self-love and body acceptance (and created a huge social media platform).
  • How our impatient, “now, now, now” culture can set us up for failure.
  • Why we should learn to fail fast.
  • A powerful exercise that you can use to help you make it through tough times.

Since the beginning of humanity, I’m sure there’s been a fascination with the accumulation of a lot of “stuff”. There were probably a bunch of cave-people who had way too many animal skins and rocks hanging around just for the sake of showing off to the cave-folks in their neighborhood (this is basically the premise of every episode of The Flintstones by the way).

It’s probably a hard-wired psychological game that if you have the most stuff, you win. But the sad reality is that this accumulation gene is still alive and well within us today. As a result, there’s been a tidal wave of folks jumping to the complete other of the spectrum to become minimalist (in revolt of our typical hoarding nature). But, as with most things, there’s actually a much more balanced middle ground that you can find happiness. But, it starts with you finding out just how much the clutter in your life matters.

Seriously, this information blew me away! I had no idea how much organization in our lives could affect our food choices, our motivation in life, and our overall success. Today’s guest helps break this stuff down in a way that makes sense, and I promise that you’re going to experience ah-ha moments left and right!

Our guest in this powerhouse episode is New York Times bestselling author Chalene Johnson. She’s an icon in the fitness industry (she literally revolutionized at-home fitness with her record-breaking workout DVDs), a dedicated wife and mother, and an absolute in the world of business, personal development, and entrepreneurship. If anyone had permission to clutter-up their life, it was her. But she found that the clutter was controlling her and holding her back. Now she’s on a mission to show you just how much the clutter is affecting you, and how to efficiently and effectively de-clutter your life.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • The truth about vitamin C (it doesn’t work like you think it does!).
  • Why spending time NOT working is a big part of our health.
  • How dieting can get associated to being unhappy.
  • Why it’s critical to decide what’s most important to you.
  • Why you shouldn’t start a new diet until you get your environment de-cluttered.
  • How clutter is a psychological obstacle in our lives.
  • The shocking way that clutter can affect your food choices.
  • How tidiness in your home impacts your levels of motivation.
  • Why everything you’re exposed to requires you to make a decision (this is huge!).
  • Why hiding your clutter (aka getting clutter out of your sight) is actually a great temporary solution.
  • The belief we have about time that causes us to create clutter.
  • Powerful tips to effectively de-clutter your life.
  • Why everything needs a home.
  • The secret of do it NOW.
  • How simply paying attention to how you feel can help you to de-clutter your life.
  • Why you should never leave a room empty-handed.
  • Why it’s actually ok to be messy (you just need a good pre- and post-game routine).
  • The interesting connection between tidiness and success.
  • How clutter is linked to a scarcity mindset.
  • How to deal with sentimental objects that are cluttering your space (this is important!).
  • Why de-cluttering makes room in your life for new and better things.
  • Why guilt might be the reason that you hang on to things.
  • How to use The Four Bin Method to transform your home.
  • A great gift you can give your kids by simply tidying up one thing in their room each day.
  • How to recruit your family to keep your home safe, clean, and organized.

Have you ever avoided posts on social media just so that you don’t see any spoilers for a movie or tv show you were looking forward to seeing? And have you accidentally seen too much anyway… and you try to lie and tell yourself that you didn’t see what you saw?

I’ve literally closed my eyes and blocked my ears when movie trailers have come on television just so that I can keep the goodies in a movie a secret to myself. Maybe childish… but maybe I’ll end up enjoying the movie more than you. ;)

We live in the age of spoilers. And a “spoiler alert” is common courtesy. It used to be a big spoiler when I would share with patients and attendees at live events that their fear of dietary fat is not actually the boogie man it was made out to be. Today, the vast majority of folks who are at least semi-interested in health and fitness know that fats are a crucial part of human wellness. But… SPOILER ALERT! Not all fats are good for you. And some (that could easily pass as some of the good guys), are really deadly villains in disguise waiting to end your stint in the movie called life.

In this episode, we have on New York Times bestselling author of the hit book Genius Foods, Max Lugavere. Max has an awesome story, and a pretty unique experience that makes him well suited for investigating the plot behind the battle of healthy fats versus deadly fats. We’re about to cover that and a whole lot more. So, click play, then lights, camera, action!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why paying attention to your brain health is more important than ever.
  • Which type of fuel burns cleaner in your body.
  • The heartbreaking experience that drove Max Lugavere to become an expert in nutrition and brain health.
  • What journalists and scientists have in common.
  • The shocking results that the FINGER Study revealed about improving brain function as we age.
  • Which two carotenoids have been found to improve visual processing speed.
  • What Genius Foods are.
  • Why more health-conscious people tend to get less variety in their diet it (this is ironic!).
  • Which category of food can make your brain 11 years younger on average.
  • Why it’s important to eat your salad with some healthy fats.
  • Which food source of dietary fat has the greatest amount of evidence proving its benefits for human health.
  • The difference between polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and saturated fats.
  • Which dietary fat can support your body’s use of ketones.
  • How polyunsaturated fat extracts can potentially impact your neurotransmitters in a negative way.
  • Why oleic acid (which is found in olive oil) is critical for our cells.
  • How finding good olive is like finding good weed.
  • What amyloid plaque in the brain might indicate.
  • How DHA plays an important role for your brain.
  • Why vegan sources of omega 3’s might not be a viable source of nutrition for humans.
  • Why you need to be mindful of the omega 3 to omega 6 ratio in your diet.
  • Why plants need exposure to stress to provide us with the most benefit.
  • The interesting impact that fish oil has on the brain.
  • Why avocados are a seriously healthy, genius food.
  • Why vegetable oil is not vegetable oil (wait, what?).
  • How ketone production in the body can be misleading.
  • How anthocyanins influence human health (and what special food you can find them).
  • What the colors of foods actually indicate.
  • Why egg yolks can be considered nature’s multivitamin.
  • Whether or not eggs are bad for your cholesterol.
  • How to prepare your eggs to get the most benefit from them.
  • Why creatinine is essential for your muscles AND your brain.

Have you ever let fear stop you from doing something that you really wanted to do? Fear of rejection? Fear of failure? Fear of what other people might think? Well, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Fear is often used as a tactic to control people. The media at large today, for example, utilizes fear to direct people’s beliefs and opinions about the world. Many of them sensationalized, and blatantly not true on many levels. But we accept them anyway, because fear is a very primal thing we’re driven by.

Fear can be used to control others, but the most unsuspecting and pervasive use of fear, is the fear we use to control ourselves.

Fear is a valuable evolutionary feedback system that helps to keep us safe. The problem with fear, however, is that it has not evolved with the times. Today we have literally millions more data inputs to be fearful about than our ancestors had. The sheer amount of things we have to be worried about can be overwhelming. Not to mention when the big choices come up in life (what career to choose, who to partner with, who to marry, whether or not to name your kid a direction — North West is super original, right?), stack it all together, and it can all be a bit much.

The big point to get is that fear is going to be a normal part of your daily life, and that’s okay! Our incredible guest today is going to share with you how to work with that fear, and accomplish some of the important things that you were born to do.

I didn’t choose the words “born to do” lightly. Whether you believe in destiny or not, you most definitely have a unique path in life that no one will ever replicate. You also have unique gifts that only you possess. Uncovering what your gifts are can be life-transforming to say the least. And in this episode, we’re going to deconstruct how to discover your innate gifts too.

It’s a big promise, but there are few people on the planet who know how to address these things like today’s guest CJ Quinney can. When you hear his story, you’ll know exactly what I mean. The tips, tools, and insights from this episode will be valuable to you for a lifetime. So, click play, listen in, and let’s take things to another level!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why your choice of mayo could down-regulate our friendship.
  • The surprising benefits of chia seeds.
  • Why CJ got a Masters degree and then proceeded to quit his job (even though he didn’t have any money).
  • How a message can be transcendent and impact people of different paths.
  • One of the initial steps CJ and team took in taking their content from relative obscurity to being an international brand reaching millions EACH DAY.
  • How to endure difficult circumstances and stay focused on your goal.
  • Why consistency is ridiculously underrated.
  • Why there’s two types of people when it comes to fear.
  • Why success is always relative (this is huge!).
  • How to find out what your unique gift is.
  • Why excellence attracts excellence.
  • What the catalyst was behind CJ’s 100-pound weight loss.
  • How developing character is the key to a rich life.

There’s hardly anywhere you can go in our modern society and not get your hands on a cold, fizzy soda pop. Whether you call it a soda, soda pop, pop, or just a plain old Coke, they’re as much a part of our world as reality tv, smartphones, and tiny dogs.

Fun fact, in certain parts of the U.S., millions of people refer to ALL types of soda as a Coke. In southern states like Alabama and Mississippi, when someone says, “Grab me a Coke”, the common reply would be, “What kind?”. And when you hear the Coke-wanting person reply with, “A Sprite”, don’t get confused and give them the side-eye.

Sodas seem to have been a part of our culture for a very long time. But, where did it all begin? Today we’ll be exploring the humble beginnings of the world of soda, and I guarantee it’s going to eye-opening (and maybe even a little trippy).

In this episode you'll discover:

  • When the first soft drinks in history made their appearance.
  • What a soft drink actually is.
  • How carbonated water became popularized.

Is our ability to endure tough circumstances, whether it’s in sports performance, in our careers, or in our relationships, designated to the strength of our mind?

One of my favorite definitions of the word diet is “habitual nourishment”. We can unknowingly develop tunnel vision and think that food is our only source of nourishment. True, food is a huge part, but our diet consists of far more than what we are putting in our bodies.

Our movement practices, our exposure to healthy environments (with adequate fresh air and sunlight), the influence from the relationships in our lives, and several other factors play a key role in our habitual nourishment. To attain true, sustainable health as a human being, all of these areas need to be addressed intelligently. And no one knows that better than today’s guest, Dr. Kelly Starrett.

Kelly is a doctor of physical therapy, world-class coach, thought leader, and New York Times bestselling author. He’s having a tremendous impact in our world by being an advocate for a culture of movement. The way we move can tell a lot about us as an individual, and the improvement in our movement diet can directly enhance every area of our lives. On today’s episode, we’ll be covering some of the crucial components of a healthy movement diet, plus important insights to help us recover from injuries faster and, more importantly, prevent them in the first place.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why you generally don’t see wild animals pulling a hammy.
  • How we tend identify the best athlete in the room.
  • Why movement is skill-based.
  • Why humans are extraordinary at compensation.
  • What posture really means.
  • What the central governor is.
  • Where the word mobility comes from and what it entails.
  • Why practice does NOT make perfect.
  • What it means to have a physical practice.
  • How changes in your environment can sensitize your tissues.
  • Predictive lifestyle factors for increased risk of injury.

Being in the health & fitness field for over a decade and a half, I’ve been fortunate to see some big shifts happening. There’s been huge shifts in our society's overreliance on processed, convenience foods (my idea of healthy when I first began my career was a lean cuisine microwave dinner… hey, it was low fat!). There’s been shifts in our awareness of the need for daily movement (not just conventional “exercise”). There has also been a tremendous shift in the way that physicians are treating their patients.

In the last decade, we’ve seen an explosion in integrative medicine, functional medicine, holistic medicine, and the like. These are, in general terms, approaches that take into consideration more of the patient’s lifestyle, and seek to find ways to remove the root cause of their health struggles, and not just treat symptoms with drugs or surgery. Everything in medicine has its place, but a shockingly large number of ailments that conventional medicine fails to resolve can be improved substantially with strategic lifestyle changes.

Diseases, in many ways, don’t just happen. The vast majority of us arrive in life with a pretty clean slate, and healthy, functioning genes. But then, seemingly out of nowhere... something life-altering shows up.

It may be in the form of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, or hundreds of other conditions. Suddenly, it appears. And we’re often at a loss to figure out why. But, that why is where the best doctors today work their magic. In fact, our guest on this powerhouse new episode has proof that he can teach you How To Make Disease Disappear. Today’s guest is Dr. Rangan Chatterjee. He’s a bestselling author and star of the hit BBC One show Doctor in the House, and, most importantly, he’s a physician that get real results for his patients. That’s why I made it a must to share him with you today. So, it’s time to focus in, take good notes, take action, and enjoy!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Whether or not conventional treatments for chronic illnesses are actually effective.
  • How someone can transform from Mr. Bean into Jason Bourne.
  • How a health crisis with Dr. Chatterjee’s family transformed his life and his medical practice.
  • The missing nutrient that your body needs to assimilate and use calcium.
  • How your skin complexion influences your need for sunlight.
  • The real reason why conventional medicine has largely failed in reversing chronic illnesses.
  • Why diabetes is an environmental disease.
  • What the threshold effect is.
  • The surprising array of factors that can cause insulin resistance.
  • Why you shouldn’t be chasing the perfect diet.
  • What a cortisol steal is.
  • The dangerous relationship between cortisol and inflammation.
  • Which elevated biomarker can make antidepressants ineffective.
  • Why it’s essential to have “me-time” each day (doctor’s orders!).
  • How Dr. Chatterjee’s patient reduced her symptoms of Crohn’s disease by 50 percent without changing her diet.
  • Why the excessive use of social media could be related to depression.
  • Why the future of medicine is a shift away from medicalizing people’s symptoms and, instead, caring for the whole person.
