#55: Lamorna Hollingsworth on Women’s Nutrition, Weight Management & Modern-Day Body & Health Battles

December 11, 2018

Lamorna offers a refreshing and highly relatable perspective to the needs and struggles many ladies face when it comes to getting in shape and being healthy. 

Whilst men and women are equal in every measure, and can achieve pretty much all the same things, the tone of discussion, coaching and support is often different when helping ladies achieve their health and body goals. The logical, metrics-based, obsessive nature that men can often express when they get into the training and nutrition isn’t always what women want to hear, or get motivation from. In actual fact, for many women, this can have the opposite effect. Definitely not always - but quite often. So having a female voice, a female leader, offering guidance and relatability to the AdapNation female audience is a welcome break from time to time. I’m sure you’ll agree ladies! 😉

 

Lamorna is Personal Trainer, highly-accredited Nutritionist and an online coach exclusively for women. She’s got a great back story, is incredibly empathetic and practical to her real-world female clients, and has establish value-first business online with her courses, programmes and facebook community. We had a great conversation, and it was truly refreshing to provide a female voice of authority onto the podcast. 

 

Here’s what we cover in this Episode:

 

Intro Into Lamorna Hollingsworth:

▪︎ The unlikely transition from IT to falling in love with being a Fitness Professional

▪︎ Dealing with depression and self-worth issues after her surprise forced and politically-charged redundancy

▪︎ Changing her life by stepping into the Boxing Ring!

▪︎ Taking that bold step to become a personal trainer and nutritionist, and finding her true passion.

 

Observation, Needs and Struggles for todays Women:

1️⃣ The goal is always to lose weight, but sometimes dressed up as something else

2️⃣ Struggles with subconscious hard-wired food habits and lifestyle choices 

3️⃣ The Eat Less Move More mantra is quite often misunderstood or abused

4️⃣ Dealing with the mass of myths, opinions and contradictions in regards to weight loss and health

5️⃣ The psychological aspect is often left unaddressed, leading to regression

6️⃣ Struggles with body confidence, and setting unrealistic dieting goals that can be crushing

7️⃣ The need for black and white diet rules and wanting to be 10 out of 10 in one step

8️⃣ Breaking habits versus changing habits, and the incremental improvement mindset

9️⃣ Dealing with the issue of willpower by use of planning ahead

🔟 How to have a social life but still commit to losing weight

#54: Tom O’Bryan - Causes Behind The Explosion of Autoimmune & Brain Diseases, & How To Take Back Control

December 4, 2018

In a world where the new “normal" is a pretty sad state of affairs, there is an alarming increase in diseases, cancers, cognitive decline, obesity and general decline in quality of life and health.

Fortunately there are leaders in the functional medical space that are looking at the WHOLE system. Not just the heart, or brain, or liver, or stomach -  but EVERYTHING. The interplay between the entire body, and it’s response to our environment, lifestyle, food and mindset.

 

Dr Tom O’Bryan is one of those global leaders.  

A holistic practitioner who has dedicated his life and work to understanding the sequence of events through time, your body, and environment that is causing people a myriad of disease, unease and dysfunction. He has helped 10’s of thousands of people, and is extending that help through his books, online presence and talks.

Tom has authored two best-selling books on this subject. The first being the Autoimmune Fix, that includes an Anti-Inflammatory Diet Reset that I have personally done with my family. The second, and most recent, called You Can Fix Your Brain, extends the concepts by looking specifically on the impact our food, environment and lifestyle have on our brain health. 

 

Here’s what Dr Tom O’Bryan shares in this jam-packed 1h Episode:

 

1️⃣ The startling evidence that supports the need for a Paradigm Shifting Moment in how we look at human health and disease

2️⃣ How in just 1 hour a week over the course of a year you can transform your health and cognitive capabilities

3️⃣ The issues with Phthalates from Plastics, heavy metals and food toxins have on our lives

4️⃣ The worrying statistics related to Child health, intelligence and mental issues as a result of inheriting toxic overload from their mothers

5️⃣ Explaining how the immune system fights toxins with antibodies, but is not equipped for the volume of modern day toxins 

6️⃣ The direct link between chronic toxin exposure and autoimmune conditions such as Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, Alzheimers, Vitiligo, MS, Psoriasis, and how it takes decades to materialise into symptoms 

7️⃣ How an inflammatory lifestyle effects everybody in different ways, dependant on your weak link - i.e. your genetic vulnerabilities.

8️⃣ The difference between healthy antibody production for cell turnover and elevated antibodies that destroy more tissue than can be recreated

9️⃣ A great walkthrough on the onset and symptoms of Hashimoto's Disease and Hypothyroidism

🔟 How you Immune system elegantly remembers how to respond to toxins such as Gluten, for life, but the damaging consequence of this memory

#53: Addressing Joint or Muscular Pain & Elliot Hulse’s Meditation Camp

November 27, 2018

Muscular, tendon or joint pain can be so restrictive and uncomfortable, and can often lead us to believing we are ageing and/or broken. That it’s a fact of life that needs accepting, or something like surgery is needed.

However, a huge percentage of body pain is reversible, and is a message that there is some dysfunction or imbalance in the body that needs addressing. Work out the root cause, do some corrective strength and mobility work, and much more often than expected, you can return to full and pain free function. 

If you want to know more, this is the episode for you. 

Here’s what we cover in this Episode:

 

Part 1 - Elliot Hulse Grounding Camp / Dynamic Meditation:

▪︎ The transition over the years of Elliot - From beast mode Yo Elliot to Spiritual Guru

▪︎ Dynamic meditation - letting go of your ego, and breathing into ‘your balls'

▪︎ Bryn’s experience of letting go, meeting his man-crush, and whether he is a spiritual convert

▪︎ Being at the right place and time of your life to explore your spirit

 

Part 2 - Understanding & Addressing Body Aches & Pain (28:40 onwards):

1️⃣ What is the message physical Pain is giving us?

2️⃣ What is Phantom Pain, and does it mean there is something wrong?

3️⃣ The main general culprits for joint pain?

4️⃣ Chasing pain around the body vs understanding the root cause

5️⃣ Examples of common knee, Back & Hip Pain issues

6️⃣ The two most valuable tools to address muscular/joint pain

#50: Bryn’s Exposé: His Semi-Private Gym, Authority Issues, Developing Masculinity, 2018 Struggles/Growth & Raw Personal Feedback

November 13, 2018

When’s the last time you've asked for really honest and raw feedback, from someone who knows you well? About your strengths, your weaknesses, and the things they don’t like so much?

When’s the last time you reflected on how you are showing up, and whether you are truly happy with how you handle yourself today? 

These are tough questions, and it takes courage to be exposed to some home truths. But these home truths could catapult you into a new exciting part of your life, where you become version 2.0.

 

Well, that’s the conversation Bryn Jenkins had today - ON AIR! It took balls, he wasn’t looking forward to it, but I think it was both therapeutic and liberating for Bryn, as he now sees what he needs to go do, to become the man that lights him up inside.

 

This is what we talk about:

 

Bryn HUUUUUGE News!

▪︎ He’s picked up the keys today...

▪︎ Starting a new wave of training within the UK fitness industry

▪︎ What is Semi-Private Training, the setup and the value to the people

 

Bryn’s Exposé (25mins onwards):

1️⃣ Reflecting on the amount of change and growth in 2018 personally

2️⃣ Struggling with being vulnerability, and wanting everyone to like him

3️⃣ Getting sick of being Mr. Nice Guy and lacking the respect of others

4️⃣ The struggle with proactively dealing with confrontation

5️⃣ Being the butt of other peoples jokes. Enough’s enough

6️⃣ Struggling to get voice heard in a group

7️⃣ How becoming a husband has starting the ball of change rolling

8️⃣ At a crossroad - exchanging Comfort for Discomfort, to help advance his future

9️⃣ What does he think his Wife’s Dad, his Best Mate, and his ‘Enemies’ would say of Bryn? Good and bad?

 

Bryn’s Opportunity For Growth:

▪︎ Ready to rebrand - Bryn 2.0. What that sounds like

▪︎ Starting to find the real Bryn. Accepting it, loving it, and refining it

▪︎ Becoming a Man. Owning his masculinity. How?

▪︎ How to think about commanding more respect, have more authority, and not always wanting to please

 

Correction: Didn’t mean two and half a men. Meant to be Three Men and A Baby, and referring to Tom Selleck!

#49: Are Wearable Devices & Health Tracking Tech Worth It, & Steve’s Magic Tech Experience in Disney World!

November 6, 2018

Is it worth considering a wearable device such as a watch or ring, or get into the data and insights from these health-related monitoring and tracking applications?

That’s what we get into in this episode, as we explore the impact wearable tech and tracking apps have had on Steve’s training, wellness, nutrition and day-to-day life over the last couple of years, and the potential of for this space over the coming years. The reality is, people have, and can continue to manage their lives, health and body shape without tech, data and added complexity. That said, does this new technology help you achieve your goals faster, more precisely and inform you in ways your basic intuition cannot?

This conversation actually flowed naturally from discussing Steve’s most recent family trip to Disney World - the experience, the magic, the logistics, the service and… the technology. 

 

Here’s what we discuss:

 

Disney World (first 25mins):

▪︎ How Steve surprised the girls fo the trip

▪︎ The art, science and logistics of created ‘Magic'

▪︎ Incredible highlights of Harry Potter World, Toy Story Land & Pandora

▪︎ How the cutting edge technology of wearables, apps and sensors transformed the experience...

 

The Scoop On Wearable & Health Tracking Technology (25:30 mins onwards):

1️⃣ Smart Watches - are they just a fad and gimmick? Do they make a positive difference?

2️⃣ Steve’s unease of walking away from beautifully crafted wrist watches

3️⃣ What do you end up really using these wearables for, day to day?

4️⃣ Are they accurate on calories, heart rate, distance etc, and does it matter?

5️⃣ Are wearable building up intuition and awareness, or are they making us ‘dumb’ to common sense?

6️⃣ Where is the wearable space going - Rings, Microbiome Testing, Glucose Monitoring, the nirvana dashboard...

7️⃣ How your heritage and DNA combined with this new tech could have answers to personalised optimal nutrition

#48: Michelle’s Experience Bulking to Fix Her Metabolism & Recompose Her Body Shape

October 30, 2018

She’s back again, after popular demand! Michelle Katasi joins this podcast to have an open an honest discussion about her experience of recently going on a ‘Bulk’ - a mild calorie surplus whilst progressively overloading with Weight Training. 

It’s a controversial approach that is met with huge initial resistance, as the mere idea of purposely eating more calories than you need for a woman goes against all the media and social conditioning related to having a ‘good' body. 

However, there comes a point in time for ladies where the downward spiral of Eat Less Move More stops working, or worse, can make you ill. And, if you get inspired by some of those #Instafit influencer female physiques, the truth is many have packed up a reasonable amount of muscle over the years to achieve the look. 

 

So, as Michelle has followed the Break-The-Mould Body Plan as well as the AUG-18 LADIES #HyperWorkouts over the last 10 weeks, it’s time to let you guys into the truth. Has it been great, ok, or a waste of time? Has she balled out of control from a weight perspective, or is she in a good place?

 

Michelle covers:

1️⃣ Why she felt compelled to start a Bulk

2️⃣ Her apprehensive feelings before starting

3️⃣ The specifics of Nutrition and Training plan she followed

4️⃣ Progress she made in the gym

5️⃣ Her approach to driving accountability and pressure to progress

6️⃣ How specifically her body changed during the process 

7️⃣ How she felt during and towards the end - both physically and emotionally

8️⃣ How the subsequent Cut (calorie deficit) is going

9️⃣ Where her head is at regarding he experience, and whether it has changed her approach/outlook to managing her body shape going forward

#46: Our Go-To Health & Fitness Apps, & the iPhone’s ‘Screen Time’ to Manage Usage

October 16, 2018

The rapid advancement of usable everyday technology can be so liberating and enabling, and at the same time be so destructive when it comes to productivity and happiness.  

Specifically, as we talk about Smart Phones, use and dependancy is spiralling out of control. That said, if you are mindful and leverage the latest features and apps, you can pull out so much goodness from your phone whilst controlling your use. That’s the essence of our discussion today. 

 

First part of our chat talks about the latest release of iOS with an insightful and powerful feature called Screen Time. We chat about how this release allows for greater insight and management of your tech use as well as your kids. We delve into the eye opening stats of Steve’s phone use (eek), and how he intends to help curb the inevitable trend of his young kids getting addicted to their tech. Let’s face it, most of us are using our phone's as a crutch to run, operate and distract our lives. We’re truly addicted. Features like this help highlight the issue and give us tools to manage our use. 👍

 

For the Second Partof the Podcast (at ~20mins in), we get into our Go-To Health & Fitness Apps we use frequently, that you too may want to look at. We’ve broken the Apps down into Four Categories:

 

1️⃣ Food Apps- Nutrition, Diet Management & Food Inspiration

2️⃣ Training Apps- Programmes, Workout Tracking, Accountability, Running, HIIT Training etc

3️⃣ Rest Apps- Guided Meditation, Sleep Tracking, Device Use Management

4️⃣ Overall Stats, Dashboards & Other Apps- Apple’s Health App, Apple’s Screen Time etc

 

Lastly, we chat about our Tech Wish List (at ~58mins in) - where we’d like to see technology go to make things even better, faster and easier to use smart tech to advance our health, fitness and wellness.
