Dr. Mike Roussell knows the nutrition game. On top of being a nutrition expert, Mike is also an author of several books as well as a nutrition adviser for Men’s Health and Shape magazines. He believes in the idea of what he calls the “Psychology of Nutrition” or the mental aspect of eating and dieting. He actually did a research on the eating behaviors of ordinary people, ordinary being people who aren’t really into the whole health and fitness mindset yet. He found out the hardest part of maintaining a diet was not planning or crafting the right nutrition plan rather it was the doing of the nutrition that people find most difficult.

Today, Mike talks about the idea behind the Psychology of Nutrition, the difference between physiological and hedonic hunger, and what food logistics is. He describes the Rate Limiting step of nutrition as well as why he thinks people have a misguided focus on their wellness.

 

"The psychology of nutrition is an extremely interesting and untapped area of food and nutrition.” Dr. Mike Roussell

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Tracking nutrition in whatever detail you want is fine.
  • People are too obsessed with how many calories they eat that they lack sleep and not exercise. This makes counting calories not matter.
  • Mike describes the Rate Limiting Step of nutrition by comparing it to when you overeat, but you focus on work to rest ratio when the focus should be on the “overeating” part. People need to focus on what's limiting them, what's holding them back.
  • People base their decision on food based on level of wholesomeness instead of nutrition.
  • A lot of gluten-free foods aren't really all that much healthier.
  • Pay attention to hunger and stop eating in front of a screen. It will make you focus on the food you're eating and will help you satiate faster.
  • Physiological hunger is when the body has a need for calories and nutritional sustenance. Reward driven or Hedonic hunger is when your body doesn't need any calories, but you eat because it makes you feel better.
  • Food logistics is knowing how you get the right meals for you at the right times during the day, every day.
  • Good food isn't just going to magically appear in front of you unless you prepare it first.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • To be successful in nutrition there has to be some gray. There is no "just" in nutrition.
  • People need to listen to their body's signals which we just don't do as much as we should.
  • Pre-planning your meals will make your nutrition more about execution and not figuring out.

Betina Gozo is a Nike Master Trainer who approaches fitness from a holistic and long term perspective. She got started into fitness way back in high school, when she was simply someone who enjoyed dancing and joining any event related to dancing. As a dancer, she saw herself as a fit woman capable of a lot of physical activities most people find difficult. At least until her friend took her to a bootcamp class which served as a wake-up call to her actual level of fitness.

Instead of letting that experience scare her, Betina sought to take that boot camp class as a challenge. She got stronger, she knew more about what it means to be fit, and ultimately realized she wanted to make other people feel great too, so she pursued a career in personal training. She currently serves as an independent contractor for a variety of commercial modeling campaigns and a full-time personal trainer to her many clients.

Betina joins us to discuss what it means to be fit in a holistic manner. She gives insight on the importance of stretching and mobility and why mobility exercises can vastly improve your workout performance. She also dives in on why muscles get tight and why most people think Yoga and mobility are the same thing.

 

"Holistic training is all about just incorporating other things and not just doing the same thing every single day.” Betina Gozo

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Her muscle-string analogy on muscle tightness and stretching.
  • The difference a personal trainer can do for your training.
  • Is mobility defined differently from Yoga?
  • Should you foam roll before or after you train and why?
  • Common injuries her clients don't see coming.
  • How she teachs her clients to look at fitness from a long term perspective?

 

Mentioned in this episode:

 

Key Takeaways:

  • The more you train, the tighter are your muscles going to get, so you need mobility.
  • Focus on loosening tight muscles rather than making loose muscles, looser.

Keri Gans’ became a dietitian after she realized working in the fashion industry didn’t give her a sense of passion. She believed that looking good on the outside is nothing if you’re breaking down on the inside. Her philosophy in general nutrition is simple: she just doesn’t believe in good or bad foods. She does believe there are foods out there that can be better for you, and in foods that we should consume more of.

Keri’s belief is the principle behind her successful book The Small Change Diet where she challenges the all-or-nothing approach to current diet trends and tells her audience that there shouldn’t be any “shoulds” when it comes to being healthy. She believes there is a place for every food in a well-balanced diet, and deprivation is definitely not in her category.

Keri joins us today to discuss her concept of what a good diet really is, why she hates the term “cheat meals,” the importance of motivation, and what she normally tells people when they ask her for diet advice.

 

" With healthy eating, believe it or not, it also means not always eating healthy.” Keri Gans

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What interested her in pursuing a healthy lifestyle?
  • Why she thinks there shouldn't be any "shoulds" when it comes to diet and exercise.
  • The importance of how you feel when you do something good for your body.
  • Why Keri doesn't provide "meal plans" to clients.
  • The importance of building a healthy lifestyle gradually.
  • Why having a personal motivation is necessary to try to improve your health.
  • Her dietary recommendations for most people to get started.
  • Why Keri doesn't like the term "cheat meal"
  • What she tells people when they ask her if they should go on a specific diet.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • It's crazy to totally eliminate a certain food from your diet. What’s not crazy is having a normal relationship with food.
  • You can't outrun a bad diet, that's something that cannot happen.

Robyn Openshaw is popularly known as the Green Smoothie Girl because of how she helped popularized the concept of green smoothies more than a decade ago. Robyn is an accomplished author of over 15 books, a former psychotherapist, a university professor, and a single mom to four children. She now strives to teach a lifestyle that isn’t just merely about having a healthy diet, but a lifestyle that allows you to become filled with positive energy and high vibrational frequencies.

The topic of vibrational frequencies may seem “woo-woo,” but Robyn is confident in the fundamentals of the research and how simple dietary changes can help prove this rather novel concept of health and wellness. In fact, four years after she learned what vibrational frequencies were all about, everything she learned in grad school and during her early practice were deficient.

Robyn joins me to discuss her new book, the concept of vibrational frequencies, what convinced her to believe in the concept, and quick and easy tips on how to increase your vibrational frequencies right now.

 

"A substance of a higher frequency can cause a substance of a lower frequency to increase.” - Robyn Openshaw

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What drove her to write her new book?
  • How to measure electromagnetic vibrational frequencies.
  • Assessing your food choices according to their vibrational frequencies.
  • How does detoxifying and vibrational frequencies relate to one another?
  • Foods high and low in vibrations.
  • How do you make a green smoothie last for more than a day?

 

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Greens are the highest vibration food available to us.
  • There are quantum reasons to drink green smoothies.
  • Green smoothies fit into any lifestyle.
  • As Einstein said, everything in life is vibration.

Adam Bornstein is probably the most “zen” guest we’ve ever had in the show. He’s the epitome of what being calm and chill is all about, but interestingly enough, he wasn’t like this when he got into fitness. Like many others, Adam’s first fitness experience is related to doing sports activities in school and he always had a fondness for basketball. Unfortunately, Adam incurred back injuries twice: The first one was treated poorly, and the other took a year and a half to treat.

Perhaps it was fate, but Adam says his second therapist was the one who urged him to get back into a fit lifestyle. He would endure physically demanding tasks, but he figured it was a lot better than just remaining injury prone and living a sedentary lifestyle forever. He has since had a curiosity for the human body, which is what made him who he is today.

Adam joins us to share his insight on what fitness really means. He talks about the current state of the fitness industry, and why many are joining and more are quitting. He also talks about the kind of successes we should look for in our fitness program and why it’s alright to not be in tip top shape all the time.

 

" It's not about the six pack abs or the big muscles. Those are a byproduct of doing things the right way.” Adam Bornstein

 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Is there enough focus on developing a personalized way of fitness in the industry?
  • The psychological aspect of making an effective workout program.
  • How we should view our successes in terms of workout results.
  • Huge mindset shifts Adam has to work on with his clients.
  • Why the human body is not guaranteed to be in top shape all the time.
  • Why the successes you want to see may not be the ones you should be focusing on.
  • Why it's important to find a way to do things you find difficult or impossible to do.
  • His go-to desserts for indulgence

 

Key Takeaways:

  • There's nothing wrong with wanting to look better. The problem is, when those goals become the primary focus it becomes hard to stick to it.
  • If you keep in mind the type of people that you're trying to help, there's always going to be someone who wants to listen or read because you're not creating something that is hypothetical.
