Last week I wrote an article talking about how 50% of articles written are 100% bullshit. I didn’t mention in that article how many studies are also crap. I have heard about half the studies are also skewed to prove a product. One of my clients is a pediatrician who studied this exact topic while getting her PhD. When I asked her what percentage of studies are false, all she said was, "A lot." and chuckled.

Heat up the body with your choice of method. If you`re using a cardio machine the intensity should be low and you should have a sweat going for at least a couple minutes before your done. Then I like mobilization to increase the range of motion. Mobilization is a form of dynamic stretching. Never do static stretching before an activity; static stretching (holding stretches) is good for a cool down after your workout.
There is a ketogenic summit going on right now and I highly recommend everyone has a listen here. It seems like every doctor is writing a book on how fat is good for you and all the benefits of eating good fats. Then there’s the doctors writing books on how carbohydrates and sugars are causing all kinds of problems for people. The word is getting out slowly, but a lot of people are stuck on the stigma that fat is bad. I hope those people can get a paradigm shift with this summit.

I didn’t have time to write an article this week. I know I’m a slacker. However, I want to refer you to an article on bodybuilding.com. I send this to every new client because I want them to know how to eat before during and after a workout. I wrote an article on that already, but here’s an article on what to have during your workout. I hope you enjoy it.
Oxidants are highly unstable compounds because they are missing an electron. They steal an electron from their neighbor, but now the neighbor needs an electron, so it steals one from its neighbor, and so on. When this happens in the body it is called oxidative stress and it’s very damaging to our cells if it’s not stopped.
How do we get the oxidants in the first place?
20 years ago Dr. Jeffrey Smith went to a lecture. A genetic engineer was talking about how they are about to genetically engineer the food supply. This engineer was intimately familiar with the technology and he said that the technology wasn’t ready for production. He said it was completely dangerous for those who eat it and for the environment. Dr. Jeffrey Smith has been trying to eliminate GMOs ever since.
Stress can be explained using the scenario where we are walking from our igloo and we see a giant polar bear growling at us. The heart rate increases, blood pressure goes up, blood vessels expand, muscles are being fed energy from fuels that are being made from stored fats, the respiratory drive goes up, we sweat to keep us cool because we’re about to exert ourselves, the blood thickens to clot faster than normal, we produce inflammatory chemicals to activate our immune cells to start mobilizing for tissue repair, the attention centre in the brain lights up; it’s a massive change in our system. It’s all designed to deal with a clearly perceived environmental threat. Have you seen that Leonardo Dicaprio movie "The Revenant"? This type of thing used to happen.
The Microbiome Summit was last weekend and 33 doctors got together to talk about the bacteria of the body.

The doctors say the bacteria is our greatest allies against disease and illness
