We all certainly have craving for foods that we like and give us pleasure to eat, but how do these cravings work and how can
It is very serendipitous that the publisher sent me a book titled “Skinny Liver“. I was recently diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease also referred to as (NAFLD). I obviously was really interested in the topic and what author Kristin Kirkpatrick had to say about the symptoms, treatment and nutrition programs to combat the disease.
What is ironic is that NAFLD’s symptoms are not something that you usually feel. As Kristin stated the disease is the silent epidemic. Over 30% of the American population have the disease and many probably don’t even know they have NAFLD. It can be detected through a liver blood panel where they measure AST/ALT. Both of these are great indicators of types of liver disease or damage.
Here are just a few factoids about your liver: 1) 96% water. 2) It is the one of the largest organs. 3) It produces bile for digestion 4) It helps you resist infections. 5) It stores and releases glucose. 5) It produces cholesterol. 6) It is responsible for regular blood clotting. 7) It clears the blood of drugs. Needless to say it is one of the most important organs in our body.
In my interview with Kristin we discuss in depth the NAFLD disease, what causes it and how to change your diet and exercise program to help in reversing the disease. NAFLD has connections to other diseases as well such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease and many others. I highly recommend that you listen to our interview and listen to Kristin about how to treat and hopefully reverse the disease.

We are all aware of the aging baby boomer population–thousands are turning 65 every day, and the numbers of the aging is not going to diminish. The sad statistic is that a hugh portion of this population has the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. People’s cognitive abilities are diminishing at alarming rates, and it has been proven that this can be reversed by our diet.
In my interview with nutritionist Maggie Moon and the author of a new book entitled ” The Mind Diet” we discuss the food to eat and the foods to avoid to help prevent from early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. You will not be surprised to learn that a good portion of the diet is green leafy vegetables and fruits and nuts. That is not to say you can not eat fish, chicken and meat but in much smaller portions that the American diet consumes this protein today.
The Mind Diet has been proven to reduce hypertension and heart disease as well. During our interview Maggie discussed the correct food groups and the foods to avoid. We also get into the menus and recipes that she recommends.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with an expert in the Mind Diet.

As they say you are what you eat, and you really want to pay attention to what Maggie has to say about the Mind Diet.
My good friend Dr. Daniel Friedland MD has written a wonderful book entitled “Leading Well from Within” this book is for anyone who is seeking to leverage the stress in their lives and become a better leader in the process.
I know that many of you reading the blog entry are familiar with “conscious leadership” Daniel provides a platform through his book “Leading Well from Within” that gives the reader an entirely new perspective of what it is like to be a conscious leader. There is a clear correlation between leadership effectiveness and business performance. Daniel states that “to lead well from within you need to ensure you have the best driver in the driver’s seat to meet life’s demands”. To become the best driver you need to understand that how your brain reacts to certain stimuli and conditions, and how you are able to learn to control your response is the secret of being a conscious leader.
The difference between being reactive versus being creative is knowing how to reduce and control your stress and removing your self-doubt, while increasing your inspiration. All of this activity occurs in various areas of your brain, and you can learn how to modulate this through being mindful. “Leading Well from Within” is the guidebook for any leader wanting to improve their responses to circumstances and events that if handled properly could become the turning point to improving their outlook about the situation, and the outlook of all those that depend upon a well centered and focused leader.

I am certain that almost everyone listening to this podcast is interested in better health and nutrition. So what makes the approach that Dallas & Melissa Hartwig authors of the new book ” Whole 30” so much different that all the other diet & nutrition programs?
In my interview with Dallas Hartwig we explore how “Whole30” transforms your life. It is not a diet program or even a quick fix for that matter. The “Whole 30″ program has been carefully designed to change the food you eat, and find out which foods are causing you health challenges.
Dallas and Melissa are focused on good nutrition, detoxing and only having you eat food that work for you. The physical benefits of the Whole30 are profound, 96% of the participants lose weight and improve their body composition without counting or restricting calories. Dallas recommends not stepping on the scale everyday to measure your weight , instead he focuses on how you feel and how you clothes fit as an indicator of success.
Our country is filled with food related disease from high blood pressure to diabetes and most if not all of the conditions can be eliminated through better nutrition, exercise and stress reduction. One of the major causes of theses diseases is inflammation, as Dallas states it is like being a little bit sick all the time. Your food choices can rectify almost all of the associated inflammation, and related illnesses so choose wisely.
I trust you will find my interview with author Dallas Hartwig insightful and filled with useful guidance toward better health. I recommend you check out the Whole30 website by clicking here, and also visit the Whole30 Facebook page by clicking here.
