It’s time to blow the barn doors off of this COVID-19 mainstream hysteria, anti-science and fear-inducing messaging. Enough’s enough, it’s time to bring in the real science, data and truth to this discussion. It’s time to #FlattenTheFear. Recorded 29th May 2020. 

 

To do so, we have the brilliant Irish engineering mind Ivor Cummins on the mics, who will stop you in your tracks with the avalanche of logic, scientific analysis, and damning conclusions from experts all around the globe. 

 

Ivor Cummins, who spent 30 years managing large-scale complex medical engineering projects, has dedicated the last eight years to the science of nutrition and health. Through his tireless efforts online, at talks, producing movies, and leading charities, he is helping people worldwide reclaim their health through simple dietary interventions. 

 

As the COVID-19 Pandemic hit in January, he quickly dropped his diet and heart health advocation to commit all his engineering and biology brainpower to better understand the crisis, and how we as people and governments should be responding. Diving into the data and science, he’s been on mission to counter the mainstream fear-based hysteria with the more tempered reality. 

 

Ivor has quickly become a leading mind globally in best understanding the dynamics of this virus and its health impact across the world. 

 

This is not about conspiracies. It’s 100% about the science, data and evidence. If you want to be honestly brought up to speed on the realities of COVID-19, and how you should be thinking and feeling about the risks, this is an absolute MUST-LISTEN. 

 

Don’t just listen - share this evidence-based episode to those in your life you care about. They deserve the truth too. Unless we change the public sentiment, we’ll have our civil liberties suppressed for an awfully long time...

Dr. Cate Shanahan, author of Deep Nutrition, joins us today to talk about the ill effects of PUFA’s, caring for your Connective Tissue, pre and post natal nutrition, and how nutrition effects beauty. 

 

Cate knocked me sideways with her seminal book Deep Nutrition, that introduces you to ideas in nature and human physiology that makes so much sense, but you don’t hear about. 

 

She’s a board certified US Family physician specialising in resolving diet-driven conditions such as obesity, diabetes, chronic fatigue and autoimmune conditions. She has built nutritional programs for LA Lakers and other NBA teams across the US for optimal performance and wellness. 

 

Dr Cate has taken on the David vs Goliath war against Polyunsaturated Fats (PUFA’s), otherwise known as Seed and Vegetable Oils, for their deleterious effects on the human body. We get into why she is so passionate about this fight. 

 

As part of your understanding of what great nutritional health looks like, this episode with Cate is a must-listen, alongside her books listed below.

Kris Gethin - world renowned ‘Biohacker’ and former natural Pro Bodybuilder joins us for a fascinating insight into what the edge of self-optimisation and optimising wellness looks like. 

 

Biohacking is a term that is growing in popularity, but still very much a niche idea. In health and wellness circles, it’s an expression of health optimisation with techniques, technology, supplements, nature and medical procedures. 

 

Biohackers can often be considered obsessive, over prioritising the minutia, and over investing into quantification and tech. There is sometimes a sense of wanting to live forever by playing god with technical innovations. But, this is an unfair representation. 

 

Kris Gethin is a shining example of someone who deeply understands wellness and longevity, and invests appropriately for his life priorities and income. Kris is a fellow podcaster, personal trainer, wellness enthusiast, author, and owner of a supplement line and gym academies. 

 

Get an insight into how Kris’ mind works as it relates to optimising health and biohacking, his journey from bodybuilding to optimised wellness, and his fringe biohacking experiments. Most importantly, learn about his most accessible and highest priority biohacks that we should all consider.

Mark Rippetoe, world-renowned strength & conditioning coach and authority joins us to tackle the matter of Strength Training as you get older, especially after 50 years old. 

 

64 year old Mark, wrote the book on Strength Training - literally! His books, including Starting Strength, is considered the bible in the weight training world, and forms the bedrock on which all other reputable programming is based off of. Mark is an ex-powerlifter, gym owner, and runs strength seminars year round. 

 

As a man who still trains heavy, and has personally coached tens of thousands of older folk who found lifting later in life, his understanding of the aged physiology is unparalleled. 

 

In this episode, in true Rip style, Mark delivers science and frankness. He helps you understand the importance of strength training as you age, what limitations need to be managed, and specifically how to train. He challenges the avoidance of weight training with running and cycling, testosterone issues and the difference between exercise and training. 

 

Plus loads more! This is a great episode full of training and health wisdom. Enjoy!

This gets interesting! Bryn Jenkins joins us again, this time remotely, to explore and reflect on and how Fixed and Growth Mindsets manifest in the weal world, and how it’s unlikely you posses just one or the other. 

 

Perhaps over popularised now, many people are quick to label themselves as having a growth mindset - because they are taking some risks and learning. But, are they really growth minded? 

 

What started off as a discussion to define the two mindsets and then showcase our individual shifts from fixed to growth, became a conversation with more questions than answers. Our fixed mindset tendencies started to shine through… 

 

This is an important conversation, with lots of definition and education, but made real by exposing the multi dimensional realities of being human. Hopefully these stories and insights resonate, and also offer some inspiration.

Bryan Gohl educates us on the whole-body benefits of Red Light Therapy  - a promising and scientifically validated technology that is quickly becoming a staple within the daily regimes of wellness enthusiasts. 

 

At its essence, Red Light Therapy looks to replicate some of the powerful human benefits of sun exposure, in a shorter more intense session that fits into our busy modern lifestyles. We are, after all, photosensitive beings that are regulated by the daily rhythm of sunlight. 

 

We instinctively know we feel mentally and physically when it’s sunny and we’re outside. Bryan, biohacker and founder of Red Light Rising, helps us understand the biological mechanisms for why this is, and how Red light Therapy leverages these same mechanisms. 

 

This episode explores Bryan’s personal wellness journey, including the profound impact his counter culture dietary choices have had on his health and wellness. He shares how he found Red Light Therapy, and what motivated him to start a company in this space. 

 

From there, we get into the science and evolutionary logic behind the mechanisms and benefits of sunlight, red light and infrared. We get into the details, whilst making it very practical in terms of how to integrate Red Light Therapy into your life. 

 

For those that want the most out of life, getting clued up on Red Light Therapy just makes sense. It’s the true expression of self-optimisation.

Gain a unique emotional and personal insight into living with a significant mental health disorder, with Psychologist, mental health advocate, and public speaker Jeremiah Osei-Tutu. 

 

Recorded 1st April 2020 - We are within a deep and profound crisis - the Coronavirus global pandemic. Modern life has stopped, as we know it. We’re adapting to a very different way of living. 

 

Emotions are high. It’s an incredibly testing time psychologically. We need tools, perspectives and emotional guidance on how to navigate the darkness of this crisis - to protect our mental and physical wellbeing.

 

For some, this time could be particularly vulnerable and scary. To help see this situation through the eyes of those with mental health disorders, Jeremiah Osei-Tutu offers his unique perspective as sufferer of Schizophrenia and a Psychologist.

 

This episode lets you in to the dark reality of serious mental health issues. You may relate to some degree to the emotional struggles of life. Most importantly, it exposes the powerful mechanisms to not only cope, but to also robustly thrive in spite of mental disorders. 

 

The interview naturally takes on two halves. Firstly, Jeremiah bravely lets us into his world and shares his debilitating mental health journey. The second half switches to the COVID-19 Pandemic, covering the looming mental health issues and ways to combat those real risks.

AdapNation Food Diary - 100’s of Tasty Healthy Meal Ideas, that are focussed on helping you thrive 

20-year ex Vegan and acclaimed author Lierre Keith, joins us to expose the ugly truths about veganism and plant agriculture that we never hear.

 

Lierre breaks down the flawed and misunderstood moral, political and nutritional world views that are so popular in vegan, vegetarian and plant-based advocacy. 

 

This is not a witch hunt. Lierre cares so deeply about causing least harm, harmonising with nature and replenishing our looted soils. She makes the claim that the most passionate about nature and sustainability, are unfortunately the most naive regarding our modern plant-heavy food supply. 

 

This is why we did this episode. To empathetically speak to the devout Vegans, Vegetarians, and those seriously considering a plant-based diet for ethical, sustainable and nutritional reasons. There is no judgement, just adult knowledge to supplement people's passion. 

 

Pro-Vegan messaging can strike a chord in quick soundbites. Rebutting these soundbites requires deep dialog and understanding. Lierre’s emotional and jarring book The Vegetarian Myth does exactly that from a moral, political and nutritional perspective. 

 

We try our best to represent the key elements of her book within this unavoidably long Podcast interview. It’s worth committing the time. We all need to level set on some ugly truths if we are to find sustainable and nourishing ways to exist.

Dr Jaime Seeman, aka Doctor Fit and Fabulous, who specialises in female health, joins us today for a scientific and personal discussion on why she strongly advocates for an animal-based low carb lifestyle. It’s a fun and informative interview!

 

Jaime is a OBGYN from Nebraska, who has seen tremendous physical and wellness results personally over the last 3 years by embracing a ketogenic lifestyle. 

 

In actual fact, it’s when she transitioned to a Carnivore(ish) diet the benefits in health, body composition and mental capability really took off. As well as her career online. 

 

Jaime does a great job of representing women in the male-dominated cross section of Keto, Carnivore, Bodybuilding and Functional Practioners. She offers a compelling and exciting insight for other women to explore, and is debunking many long held nutritional beliefs. 

 

In this episode, we get into Dr. Jaime Seeman’s personal journey, what she sees clinically, and her certainty behind advocating women to try out Low Carb, Keto and Carnivore style diets. We touch on some hot topics for many women around the globe, including pregnancy, hypothyroidism, post pregnancy, failed glucose tests, menstrual cycles cravings, concerns with plant-based and/or low fat diets, and much more.

Kelly Starrett, global mobility and movement extraordinaire, joins us for an incredibly insightful discussion on the significance of taking control of our body function, range of motion, position and recovery. 

 

Kelly is the author of the awesome book - Becoming A Supple Leopard, the creator and star of the world-famous MobilityWOD (now called The Ready State), as well as being a regarded author of four books on mobility and biomechanics, and a physio therapist and coach to elite athletes. 

 

Kelly started San Fran CrossFit - the 21st CrossFit opened worldwide, as well s being a high level water sports athlete in his own right. As such, has the unique exposure to training mechanics, athletes, the role of physio work, and the role that environment and lifestyle play in performance and pain. 

 

This episode is both introspective, informative, technical AND… relatable. It’s must-listen for most people, even though at times it might get a little too geeky for some. There’s power in being your own body mechanic. It’s worth investing in this area of your life.

This episode will shock you! We have Rebekah Farmer on the show today, who is bravely sharing her lifelong struggle with her body, mind and gut rebelling against her very existence.

 

You name it, Rebekah has had it… it is truly unfathomable just how much biological abuse she endured over 15+ years.

 

Degenerative Disc, Insomnia, Depression, OCD, ADHD, Anxiety, chronic Acne, Osteopenia. Asthma, hives, IBS, IBD, Coeliac, chronic Lyme disease, Hashimotos, Colitis, Addisons, chronic C. Diff, Diverticulitis, Ulcerative Colitis, Scleroderma, Slow Transit Colon, and more! Can you even imagine?!

 

Rebekah has battled with a systemic emergency for almost all her own life, with crippling pain, emotional trauma, medicated up to her eyeballs, and a body seemingly giving up on her. She was incredibly uncomfortable within her own skin, could not function normally, and weighed as little as 79lbs as a fully grown woman.

 

Fast forward to today, and Rebekah is completely off all meds. Almost every condition and symptom has disappeared. She is happy, strong, highly functioning and thriving. How?! Keto made a huge difference to her need for medication, but it was the Carnivore Diet that has had the most profound impact in her quality of life and health.

 

Sounds crazy right? I know. But, it sounds the same as Mikhaila Peterson's road to recovery on an all-meat diet. As well as 1000’s and growing cases online (such as MeatRX) of miraculous recoveries from modern diseases by taking this extreme and seemingly drastic course of action.

 

You’ll want to hear Rebakah’s story. Painful, encouraging… and truly fascinating.

Mattias Ribbing, aka Grand Master of Memory, joins us for a fascinating part two on short term memory, productivity and focus.

 

Mattias held the Swedish Memory Champion title for three years in a row, and was internationally named the Grandmaster of Memory. Competing in memory sports, he would do things such as quickly memorising 1060 random digits without a mistake!

 

Mattias laid out the key tenants to great memory in episode #115: Boost Your Memory & Learning Skills ~Mattias Ribbing, Memory Champion.

 

In this episode, Matthias leans in on strengthening you short term memory, improving focus, productivity hacks, and the negative consequences of the technology explosion on our brain and our performance.

Logan Sneed went from a high school athlete to becoming grade IV terminal brain tumour cancer patient overnight. He had a Glioblastoma the size of an egg in his brain!

He was informed that survival was improbable, and at best his life would be permanently altered with his hopes and dreams ripped away from him. He would likely never be able to talk and hear again. 

Luckily, Logan’s story has been remarkable, and we get to hear it today on this podcast interview. Logan demonstrates relentless drive, unshakable hope, persistent actions to get the right outcome, and a full on commitment to live his best life post surgery. 

Part of Logan’s recovery story is finding the Ketogenic lifestyle four years ago, and how his vitality, cognition and capability seems to have been significantly amplified since brain surgery. 

Logan is a young and already successful fitness entrepreneur, a beacon of hope and courage, and most recently an author of book that retells his story called Thank You Cancer.

Here's something VERY different!

 

Listen to this cinematic podcast episode (audio version of this video) where Steve explains his story and the motivation behind everything we do at AdapNation, including the creation of the unique #BeYourBest Self-Optimisation Journey.

 

As a fan of the AdapNation Podcast, the underlying message here should resonate deeply. We're all on this journey of self-discovery and self-optimisation together!

 

I (Steve) love exploring these ideas, having incredible guests on the show, and being able to share incredible insights with you all. Most importantly, your responses and support fills me with a sense of purpose and passion that I didn't think I'd feel. Thank you.

 

Normal service resumes next week. Some awesome guests discussion recorded and ready for your listening pleasure. ☺️

Negative Funks and Harmful Rumination - I’m not immune to these toxic states and thoughts, even when I know better!

I (Steve) keep my guard low on this show generally, and have no issue exposing my struggles and weaknesses for us all to learn from. But, there’s being open and relaxed, and then there is being truly transparent. Completely letting your guard down, and letting the raw and ugly truth come out.  

In this episode with Bryn Jenkins, this is exactly what I did. It was like therapy - a session on the ‘Dr Jenkins’ couch! 

I wanted to air this chat, because we all want to show the world that we’ve got our shit together. To downplay the negative and ugly aspects of our personality and behaviours. But, here’s the thing - we can’t complete avoid periods of negative mindsets. Not even self-optimising Mr #BeYourBest! 

We can’t always be happy, even though that’s the dream - the societal expectation. Being unhappy is seen as a failure, yet in spite of many low moments, people achieve the most incredible lives. What gives? 

What I think you’ll find interesting in this chat was the on-the-mic realisation that I am likely deficient in some Psychological Nutrients. And that, there is a of Self-Sabotage in all of us.  

I know better - mentally, academically and through personal experience, and yet I allow myself to to brew negativity and harmful non-productive thoughts from time to time. January 2020 tested me, and for no obvious reason...

Keto Muscle Building guru Danny Vega joins us for a part two on Keto, but this time the focus is on maximally building muscle whilst on a ketogenic diet.

Danny first joined us on the show in Episode 108, where we laid down the Keto knowledge, definitions and life benefits from taking a low carb and nose-to-tail approach to nutrition. In this episode, we decided to get really curious and specific as it relates to performance and muscle growth.  

For as long as there have been bodybuilding bros and athletes, there has been a strong emphasis on consuming a lot of carbs to fuel performance and to get bigger and stronger. Therefore, the natural response to a Keto Diet is that it will be suboptimal for athletic and bodybuilding goals. 

Is this a true statement? Are carbs essential to maximise progress? Can you build appreciable muscle on a low carb or Keto diet? What sacrifices are you making in doing so? 

These are important questions, as is the question about how to intelligently introduce carbs into a low carb diet and still maintain ketosis and fat adaptation when you have very specific training goals. And, what performance issues can you expect as you transition into a ketogenic or low carb lifestyle?

Danny helps answer these questions with detail, relatability and non-dogmatically - offering us all some great Keto muscle building intelligence. Some of which will surely surprise many listeners.  

This episode is great for everyone, whether you are in a low carb diet or not, as we cover many physiologic response to our diets and the effects that has on our training and muscle development. 

 Enjoy!

Mattias Ribbing, aka Grand Master of Memory, walks us through his most powerful techniques and concepts behind developing a strong memory, that in turn optimises learning and super charges our ability to understand. 

Mattias held the Swedish Memory Champion title for three years in a role, and was internationally named the Grandmaster of Memory. Competing in memory sports, he would do things such as quickly memorising 1060 random digits without a mistake! 

Today, however, Mattias is the author of four books and a renowned speaker. His focus is no longer on spectacular feats of memory, but instead helping children and adults massively improve their ability to learn through engineering understanding and remembering through visualisation.

Memory is so much more than an ability to reel off some facts, remember someones name, or recite a phone number. Memory is the cornerstone of human experience, and a stronger memory will enrich your life. From learning new things and developing new ideas to vividly recalling past experiences and designing your best life based on your acquired wisdom.

So, if you wish you could remember more of what you read or listened to - both the main ideas as well as the details, then this episode is a must! If you want to develop your expertise, make maths easier, and generally remember more of your life, then Mattias offers some incredible yet simple insights into how great minds do it.
