Are the 30,000 species of organisms in your gut behaving? 

Mine aren't. I came across Dr. Zach Bush in my personal quest to solve my prolonged gut issues. Even a 5-day fast didn't reset me fully. What am I doing wrong? Dr. Zach had a lot to say, including LOTS of surprising information.

What We Talk About:

  • Why gut health is EVERYTHING, but we've still got it wrong...
  • Biodiversity is critical for a healthy gut
  • What's the role of bacteria in our gut health, and what C-sections, antibiotics, and -- ARE YOU SITTING DOWN? -  probiotics are doing to hurt us
  • What does it mean to have an intelligent gut?
  • Why you should let your kids get dirty!!
  • Where most probiotics come from and why they don't work
  • How we can completely transform and repairer guts - no matter where we're starting

Welcome to the third installment of this new weekly feature where I share one thing that I'm loving, one thing I'm not, and one simple, SUPER easy, clean-eating recipe. You can find the first one here, and last week's right here.

the GOOD: Wellness Mama website  

Katie is the "Wellness Mama" - one of my favorite go-to resources for all things natural living and wellness-related. 

the BAD: Teflon and Non-Stick Cookware
  • Teflon sucks. Read my full rant about this toxic household product: "Can Cookware be Toxic?"
  • Want more info? Here's the experts' take: 
  • So, what are your options?
  • What if you have no choice? Maybe you're visiting friends or spending a week in a vacation home. Here are some tips for when you are stuck with the nonstick cookware as your only option:
    • Don't preheat - heat at the lowest temperature possible to cook your food safely.
    • Don't put nonstick cookware in an oven hotter than 400 degrees.
    • Use an exhaust fan over the stove.
    • Keep pet birds out of the kitchen -- the fumes from an overheated pan can kill a bird in seconds. For real. Read the article!
  • Did you know? Skip the self-cleaning function on your oven. It cleans by heating to high temperatures, which can release toxic fumes from non-stick interior oven parts.

the YUMMY: Almost Oatmeal by Paleo Plan

You Need:

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a small pan over medium heat, stirring often until all is thoroughly combined and warm.
  • Try it topped with pears, bananas, fresh or dried berries, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, grated apples, or sliced almonds, and serve it with sausage or eggs for a truly satisfying morning meal.

See the original recipe here, and a TON of other simple recipes from Paleo Plan.

103: She Crushed $130K in Debt Before She Could Lose 130+ Pounds

SHOW NOTES: onairwithella.com/104/ She had to shed $130,000+ in debt before she could shed 130+ pounds.

You've heard my buddy Elizabeth Benton of Primal Potential on the show before, but you have not heard this story. In her own words:

In my late twenties I embarked on a totally different journey. I was determined to get out of debt. Between my husband and I, we had well over $100,000 in student loans and other small, miscellaneous debts – just over $130,000, actually. After reading a Dave Ramsey book, I focused on the goal with unrivaled intensity. We met, and surpassed, our goal in less than 2 years. Little did I know that the process of getting out of debt would teach me everything I needed to know to finally tackle my lifelong weight struggles. It’s true. The crazy parallels between paying off $130,000 and losing over 130 pounds are astonishing. Here’s what getting out of debt taught me about life and extreme weight loss.

This is one of several shows I'll be doing to continue our Life Balance Wheel series in the area of financial health, and it is chock full of information that will help you in many areas of your life balance wheel.

102: Create Your Money Breakthrough - Ryan Yokome

onairwithella.com/102/ How Do We Change Our Beliefs About Money? 

Ryan Yokome says there are typically two beliefs that stop people from making money doing what they love:

  1. The belief that it’s not right to make money from doing what you love. 
  2. The belief that this never enough money and you have to be careful with what you have.

How do you change these beliefs? We're talking all about it in today's episode. This is one of several shows I'll be doing to continue our Life Balance Wheel series in the area of financial health. 

What We Talk About:
  • What meaning are you associating with money?
  • How does your mindset affect your ability to attract money to you?
  • What's your money story? How to create a more empowering belief.
  • The evolution: Surviving --> Saving --> Serving 
  • Follow along! Click Here to Download the Life Balance Wheel Worksheet
    • How to complete the worksheet: score each area as where you are today. The goal is not to have a high score everywhere. It's simply a tool to evaluate where you're strongest, and which areas you want to focus on next.

GET THE NOTES: Onairwithella.com/101

Welcome to the second installment of this new weekly feature where I share one thing that I'm loving, one thing I'm not, and one simple, easy, clean recipe. 

 the GOOD: Liquid Multivitamins from Mary Ruth Organics
  • Mary Ruth Organics Premium Supplements – I was introduced to Mary Ruth Organics by a listener, and on a whim decided to try out both the morning and evening liquid vitamins. (I try to get most of my vitamins from REAL FOOD - especially after this interview with Gary Collins! - but I know I'm lacking in magnesium, vitamins D and B).
  • I started these about 3 months ago, and judging by my fingernails and hair, there’s something to this (they’re growing like crazy!).
  • I’m now on monthly auto-ship (saves 10%), and I find this far easier than pill-popping for some reason. Get a one month supply for $39.95 per bottle, or auto-ship and save a bit more. It comes to about $2.40 a day, and I am a total convert.
the BAD: Air Fresheners, Fragrances & Diffusers  the YUMMY: Spaghetti Squash Frittata

You Need:

  • 1 small spaghetti squash (need ~2 cups shredded)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup organic kale or spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced (or another veggie)
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano (or spices you like!)
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Bake the spaghetti squash: Wash and slice the squash in half (length-wise) and place cut sides face down onto a baking sheet with some water in the bottom of it. Roast about 25-30 minutes at 350F (until tender). When done, shred the insides with a fork into a bowl and set aside.   *I do this in advance and keep in fridge until I'm ready to make something!
  • Sauté your chopped onion, mushrooms, etc - add the greens last and don't overcook
  • Crack the eggs into the bowl with the squash and mix in the spices
  • Stir in the veggies and then pour the mixture into the sauté pan, cover and cook over medium heat for about 8 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.

BONUS! 5-minute version: I will often shortcut this recipe for a simple, SUPER easy dish with pre-cooked squash. Simply scoop some squash in a bowl and stir in 2 eggs and S&P. Cook as you would an omelet. Makes a big, fluffy, easy egg dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

More great ideas for spaghetti squash:

What is the Truth About YOU?

Aaron Anastasi continues a theme we started with Bonnie Kelly in episode 088, and that we continue with under the Life Balance Wheel Series that we began in episode 082. Aaron wrote a killer guide to turning down our voices of limitation to "turn up the volume of our success."

088: Uncovering the Core Beliefs that Wreak Havoc in Your Life - Bonnie Kelly

Author, speaker, coach Bonnie Kelly joins us to talk about Personal Development as we continue the Life Balance Wheel Series that we began in episode 082. She's helping us understand (so we can dismantle) those negative core beliefs that are shaping our view of the world and how we operate within it.

In This Episode: 

  • The power our subconscious mind has on our daily decision making
  • How our negative core beliefs are formed in early childhood and then validated through the years by supporting "evidence"
  • Once we adopt a belief, we habitually look for proof to support it...so we act in ways that confirm that belief 
  • For transformation, you must find the source of the issue, weaken its supporting evidence and dismantle it at its core...and, it IS possible
  • Bonnie shares her own story of true transformation

This is the first episode in our new series that we kicked off in episode 082. Elizabeth Benton, creator of Primal Potential is helping us master a mindset for lasting change.

  • So many people want change, sometimes even DESPERATELY, but they can't/won't do the work over the long term. What does Elizabeth suggest to break this pattern?
  • DO LESS, WIN FASTER.
  • What about people who are really struggling with past failures? How did Elizabeth stop beating herself up over the past?
  • FAILURE IS THE BEST TEACHER.
  • Download the Failure & Lessons Worksheet that I created for us 
  • "My life used to be ___ and now it is ___. I was doing great before, but now it's all turned upside down and I don't know what to do and have fallen so far ... "

080: the Pill, Your Fertility & Natural Birth Control

The birth control pill is convenient, prolific and utterly pervasive. It's even touted as the cure for much that ails us. The Pill is taken by millions of women at some stage in their lives, and few of us realize that it is not without long term side effects. Clear links have been established between hormonal contraceptives and health dangers, including infertility. It's time to get the facts, and to educate ourselves so that we're making informed decisions. In this episode, Jane Bennett shares some of her extensive research, and empowers us to take back control over our health and choices.

071: A Different View on Ending Binge Eating Forever w/ Jill Coleman

Is Moderation Possible?

Ok, I struggle with this, I really do. To me, abstinence from some foods does seem so much easier than moderating my intake - especially with trigger foods like sugar, nut butters and other items on my list. But, sometimes my "food rules" send me spiraling into what today's guest calls the "What the Hell" effect. It looks something like this:

- "I'm hungry" or "I want something to eat" (there's a difference!)- "I can't eat THAT, because it's not on my 'good' list"- "I'll eat this, this and this instead."- "Dammit, I still want THAT."- I eat that.- "I'm terrible. What a failure. I think I'll eat something since I'm already a total loss."- REPEAT.

069: Ask Ella - Fiber Supplements, Cooked vs Raw Veggies, Expectations for Yourself & Family Sabotage

You asked, I answered...get the show notes at onairwithella.com/069-ask-ella/

1. Fiber supplements: There are a lot on the market and most seem like they are full of chemicals. Do you know of any that are easily added to a smoothie or coffee and beneficial? [Submitted by Heidi]

2. Are we killing and denaturing our vegetables when we cook them? Raw foodies will say you're killing your food. I'm a huge fan of juicing and want to get the most out of my food as possible. [Submitted by Aileen]

3. Can you discuss how to eat healthy when other people bring unhealthy foods into the house? I do the grocery shopping, but that doesn't stop my husband from bringing in tempting foods that I don't want to eat. Plus there's all the candy the grandparents load my kids with every holiday except Columbus Day. I hide it in the kitchen cabinet (out of sight, out of mind - for them, not me). [Submitted by "Sara"]

4. How do you develop the patience with yourself to keep working hard if you know you will never see the end result? In the pool, in the classroom, in my job, the harder I work, the sooner I see results. It's a different story when it comes to being your best self. [Submitted by Erica]

066: Confidence, Courage & Kicking More A** - Andrea Owen [RE-BROADCAST]

Being Fearless is B.S. 

"For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought could make me happy. Perfectionism, the need for control, and people pleasing ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out. The day I started living my life authentically, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life truly began and had immense meaning.

Today I make no apologies for who I am. I write about and talk about my own struggles with disordered eating, relationships, alcohol and all the other messy things that happen in real life." - Andrea Owen

What we talk about in this show:

•What drove Andrea to change/improve in the face of challenges that shut many people down?

•What is Andrea’s mission and purpose now?

•Managing our inner critic

•Control, isolation and perfectionism

•“Being Fearless is BS” – what is real  courage?

•"The way to gain confidence is by practicing courage" (read Andrea’s post here)

•Social media and the comparison trap

052: The Dorito Effect - Food Addiction, Flavor & the Most Compelling Lie Ever Told

"Processed food doesn’t contain the food that it is pretending to be." - Mark Schatzker

In his most recent book The Dorito Effect, best-selling author and food journalist Mark Schatker says "the cause of our food problem will not be found in individual nutrients." Rather, it's flavor, and its impact on human behavior (namely, eating), that has changed dramatically and led us so very far away from nutritional wisdom to our current blazing path toward obesity, diabetes and chronic disease. He's talking to us about how this underestimated component is demonstrated perfectly in what he's dubbed "the Dorito effect."

"Modern food may be the most compelling lie ever told." 

What We Talk About:
  • How the Dorito became the metaphor for modern food 
  • Why we won't solve our eating problem until we understand the role of flavor and human behavior
  • Food addiction is not fun. How even rats can come to rely on their next "hit."
  • "Natural flavor" = artificial flavorings, and they're in your pantry, your fridge, your freezer and nearly ever restaurant in existence 
  • What manufacturers to do everything from packaged foods to plain chicken breasts to cigarettes so that you'll crave them more (it's not pretty)
  • The role artificial flavors play in metabolic confusion...and weight gain
  • Why is this even a problem? Why we eat far more than we need to and what to do about it
  • So, what's the solution?

"Nothing tastes like what it is anymore.

Everything tastes like what we want it to be."

• If I fast 16 or 20 hrs everyday, but eat all my calories in 1 or 2 big meals, will my stomach get big (vs eating smaller morals more frequently)?

• Do you always drink bulletproof coffee and does it replace breakfast?  

• My husband works night shift - what would be the best way for him to eat to ensure his insulin levels aren't spiked and his energy levels are maintained, and basically how can I help him get healthier?

• Where do we draw the line? With all the clean eating and detoxing media messages, there seems to be a universal statement: "Eliminate processed foods." But what does that mean?  Are all packaged foods bad?

037: Gretchen Rubin - Mastering Habits for Life

SHOW NOTES!  Find all resources mentioned at http://www.onairwithella.com/037-gretchen-rubin-habits

 

Why can some people just wake up one day and decide to change their lives?

How does someone wake up one day and just quit smoking or quit drinking or stop eating sweets or processed food?

Why do some people struggle with forming habits that actually make them happy?

They know they make them happier, but they still struggle doing them.

Why do so many of us know what to do, but we just aren’t making the changes in our lives?  We know what to do but we just aren’t doing it.

 

How do we actually change?

 

These questions led me on a quest and that quest led me to Gretchen Rubin, the best-selling author, wife and mother of two.

I knew Gretchen already from her previous books; I read The Happiness Project years ago and I thought it was amazing. So when she came out with Better Than Before, her newest book, I picked up it up for myself.

I read Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives and I became a woman obsessed.  I chased Gretchen down. I said, “Oh, I know you’re on every television channel in the world. I know you’re at the top of iTunes with your own podcast.  I know that you are in extreme demand right now by every media outlet known to man, but could you maybe come talk to us? Because I believe you can change everybody’s lives who listens to this show that we do together.”

And guess what? Gretchen didn’t hesitate, and she said yes.  This show today is about how we actually create lasting change in our lives, and I hope that it is of as much value to you as my conversation with Gretchen was to me.  Let me know – 

What is one habit are you trying to break?

What is one habit you are trying to create?

030: Chronic Inflammation & How to Feel 25 Years Old - Dr. Amy Shah

I believe that the nutrition and health messages we get from mainstream medicine are ALL wrong. - Amy Shah, M.D.

Dr. Amy Shah contacted me and asked if she could come on the show. Here's what she said:

"I am a double board certified medical doctor with one of the most successful practices in the country in Allergy/Immunology. I have trained at places like Harvard and Columbia. But about a year ago, I felt I needed more - I need to follow my calling into wellness and mind body medicine. Since then I started www.amyshahmd.com.

I think we all need to think bigger in healthcare! Let’s use the power of nutrition and the wisdom of Eastern principles, and bring it together with the amazing technological advances of the modern day.

Let’s solve the problems of inflammation (such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, obesity, etc), and hormone imbalances TOGETHER."

She got my attention.

We talk about this disconnect between traditional Western medicine and the wellness movement, and a whole lot more. 

Including:

- Chronic inflammation - what is it and why should we care?

- How to feel 25 years old again - and for much longer

- Why the food of 50-75 years ago isn't comparable to the same foods today

- What foods are naturally healing to the body

- What supplements will Dr. Amy take, and why she prefers to "eat her vitamins"

This bonus episode is about shutting down mindless eating and stopping cravings in their tracks. Most cravings only lasts between 5 and 20 minutes, so implement any of these tips and override that overeating autopilo (click to expand)

 

What to Consume Instead: 

1. BCAAs – Branch Chain Amino Acids - read about how they work to reduce cravings by decreasing your appetite, keeping your blood sugar steady, and reducing cortsiol levels here, or you can really geek out here.  

2. L-Glutamine (amino acid supplement) - Many people swear by this supplement as a cravings killer. I like it because it's good for my gut, too.  This blog does a good job of explaining the science and includes references to the data.

3. Soluble fiber – I like mixing acacia fiber in a glass of water (you can also add to a smoothie) - here's why. Note: don't overdo it or it will clog you up!

4. Cocoa - go for unsweetened cacao powder and make a hot chocolate (just mix with warmed almond milk) or a delicious, super simple dessert like avocado pudding or any of these suggestions inspired by the Paleo community.

 

BONUS: The team over at Metabolic Effect recently launched a new product called Craving Cocoa that combines a lot of these ingredients (BCAA, fiber and cacao) all in one great mix! Get it here.

5. Dark chocolate – I like 85% and higher, but make sure the cacao content is at least over 70%. 

6. Fizzy water - I like seltzer/mineral water with lemon or lime added. Drink this first, then decide if you need the thing you were craving. 

7. Replacement treats - sometimes these will work to shut down those cravings. Pay attention to what works for you:

016: Eat More, Exercise Less. Jonathan Bailor on The Calorie Myth

"You will never heal your body by starving it."        - Jonathan Bailor

You first heard me mention Jonathan Bailor’s name on episode 005 with Carrie Brown where we sang his praises and the praises of his book, The Calorie Myth. One of the reasons I’m such a fan is that encountering Jonathan’s work was one of the early and major steps in my wellness journey. Jonathan’s work, along with Carrie's recipes, truly helped me move from a diet-mindset to a conscious eating lifestyle.

Today he's sharing some of his findings with us in an effort to move us away from calorie-counting and toward a lifestyle that works.

015: Confidence, Courage & Kicking More Ass - Andrea Owen

On Confidence, Courage and Kicking Ass. 

You need to listen to this one. Twice.

Andrea Owen is a Certified Life Coach and author of 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS-Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve. She is also the creator of the Your Kick Ass Life blog and podcast. 

In her own words:

"For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought could make me happy. Perfectionism, the need for control, and people pleasing ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out. The day I started living my life authentically, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life truly began and had immense meaning.

Today I make no apologies for who I am. I write about and talk about my own struggles with disordered eating, relationships, alcohol and all the other messy things that happen in real life."

What we talk about in this show:

•What drove Andrea to change/improve in the face of challenges that shut many people down?

•What is Andrea’s mission and purpose now?

•Managing our inner critic

•Control, isolation and perfectionism

•“Being Fearless is BS” – what is real  courage?

•"The way to gain confidence is by practicing courage" (read Andrea’s post here)

014: Former Marine, Now Civilized Caveman: the Evolution of George Bryant

George Bryant is the New York Times Best-Selling author of The Paleo Kitchen, and creator of the wildly popular paleo food blog Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations (2 million hits a month!). 

But life wasn't always so rosy for George.

After spending the first 20-something years of his life in a constant battle with his weight, hiding an eating disorder and suffering multiple physical traumas (including nearly losing both legs while on deployment in Somalia as a US Marine), George took matters into his own hands and began his own wellness journey.

After 12 years of service as a Marine, George now works fulltime creating delicious Paleo recipes, while hoping to change as many lives for the better by making real food recipes simple and tasty. He’s also a professional family man and author.

Listen in for the story of George's challenges, triumph, and continued work in progress.

013: How to Travel without Trashing Your Health [BONUS]

This episode was inspired by many of my peers, colleagues and the Ella “Fellas” and “Bellas” – many of whom have asked for healthy travel tips.

I typically make 2-3 trips per month, which adds up to dozens of flights per year. It can take a toll. As I have racked up some miles over the years, I have picked up some tips and tricks for reducing the stress on my body, the self-sabotage that can accompany travel, and some “preventative measures” that help keep me sane, fed and (relatively healthy) on the road.

Whether you travel once a year or weekly, I promise there will be some tips here that you haven't heard. 

Let me know your best tips for travel on the On Air with Ella Facebook page, and find links to every resource mentioned in this episode at www.onairwithella.com!

012: Vani Hari, Food Babe: Fear Mongerer or Voice of the People?

012: Vani Hari, Food Babe: Fear Mongerer or Voice of the People?

Vani makes her living making food companies angry. She challenges them on the chemicals they use to make manufactured food more addictive, longer-lasting and as cheap as possible to produce. And she’s not quiet about it.

Is she alarmist? Unabashedly, yes. Her headlines are notoriously, um, cloying at times. (Did you catch the infamous “Do You Eat Beaver Butt?” post?)  ...And it would be easy to write her off as an obnoxious headline-grabber who is just looking to generate a following by making big companies like Kraft, Starbucks, Kellogg, and General Mills look bad. Except, isn’t there something backward here? 

Vani Hari receives death threats on a regular basis because she is telling the world what food manufacturers opt to put in our food supply. Huh?

What’s wrong with this picture?

From her site:

Back when Congress gave the FDA authority over food additives (in 1958), there were about 800 additives. Today, the number of known ingredients has swelled to more than 10,000 and continues to grow. Even the FDA’s Deputy Commissioner, Michael Taylor, recently said: “We simply do not have the information to vouch for the safety of many of these chemicals… we do have questions about whether we can do what people expect of us”. - Washington Post

Additional resource: “Food additives on the rise as FDA scrutiny wanes” - Washington Post

Well, maybe that isn't as scary as it sounds, because apparently new food ingredients are commonly approved by the manufacturer themselves, and not by the FDA. So, that's helpful, right?  [What the ???]

So, what does this mean to you?

Why should you care?

Here are a few reasons:- hyperactive children- asthma- diabetes- cancer- eczema- digestive disease- premature aging- obesity- lethargy…are all on the rise. Like, WAY. ON. THE. RISE. And, according to some experts, 70% of the average American diet now comes from processed food

Interestingly, a research review of 172 clinical studies published in the Journal of American Clinical Nutrition concluded that "virtually all chronic diseases are partially caused by our modern diet of engineered foods."

Related? You decide.

And isn't that the point?

Do you have to like the Food Babe? Nope. Do you maybe want to listen to the information that she’s making public, then decide for yourself whether you opt in or out of the chemical s&^% storm that makes up the majority of processed foods?

Uh, yeah. Please do. And, if you’re not a little riled up after hearing this episode, then you weren’t listening.

009: Hal Elrod Asks, Do You Want a Life by Design or a Life by Default?

Hal Elrod is a #1 bestselling author, international Keynote Speaker, one of America’s top success coaches, ultra-marathon runner, grateful husband and proud father of two. All of this after being hit head on by a drunk driver at age 20 and found dead by EMS at the scene.

Despite being clinically dead for six minutes (!!), in a coma for six days with 11 broken bones, and being told he may never walk again, Hal defied the logic of doctors and the temptations to be a victim, and he bounced back to prove that ALL of us are capable of overcoming extraordinary adversity to create extraordinary results in our personal and professional lives.

But guess what... the accident and his recovery were NOT the biggest hurdle that he faced. That was still to come.

Listen in as Hal shares his wild ride with us, the lessons he learned, and the one practice that he started that became a revolution.

005: SANE Carrie Brown: Diets are Stupid & Calorie Counting Doesn't Work

This episode is for anyone who has ever struggled with yo-yo dieting, wondered why counting calories didn’t work, or thought they could never cook for themselves – and, anyone who wants to hear the story behind the woman behind The Sane Show ☺

Carrie Brown made treats for the Queen of England and taught me how to cook. As cookbook author, photographer, blogger and co-host of the wildly successful podcast The Sane Show with Jonathan Bailor, Carrie is a master at making healthy eating a reality for those of us who are less talented in the kitchen. She learned from personal experience that diets don’t work, and she is ready to explain why and what to do instead! Spoiler alert: she wants you to eat more, but better, and exercise less, but smarter.

In this episode, I drill Carrie on how she went from a world-renowned pastry chef (making treats for the Queen of England!) to restaurant blogger, to advocate and voice-of-the-people for the *SANE lifestyle.

Things We Talk About…

- How Carrie gained weight, felt like a total hypocrite as a food blogger, and the circumstances that transformed her life

- Carrie’s personal experience with how frustrating and unsustainable the “calories in, calories out” methodology is

- The difference between losing weight and burning fat

- Ella’s revelation 2 years ago that cooking is easy if Carrie’s helping you. (If Ella can do it, you can, too!)

- How your bathroom scale is measuring the wrong thing

- How your body will regulate itself – so you can stop trying to control it

- Diets are stupid. Period.

- How to add / hide / cram loads of veggies to your diet without even realizing it

 

What Does *SANE Eating Mean, Anyway? 

*SANE is an acronym for determining how healthful a food is for us. In short, *SANE foods are very high quality, healthful foods and inSANE foods are low quality, unhealthful foods. *SANE eating means focusing on nutrient-dense foods containing water, protein, fiber, and whole-food fats. It generally means avoiding sugar of all kinds, grains, highly processed oils, many fruits, and starchy foods.

002: American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez: On Defeating Obstacles & Mastering Our Inner Ninja

Abel Gonzalez had to overcome a great many obstacles before he got anywhere near the American Ninja Warrior course.

American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez talks to us about mastering our inner Ninja first, how he's conquering life's obstacles and living his purpose to help others along the way.

“I had to start doing some self examination – who am I ? what am I doing?  

 Abel tells us:

  • How he left a great paying job in the oil industry to take a risk - waited in line for FIVE days - and ended up making history on NBC
  • What is was like going from “indestructible” to falling apart due to rheumatoid arthritis
  • What finally helped him overcome abandonment, anger and some pretty tough circumstances 
  • What “normal" people can do to train like a ninja (no gym required)
  • His two secrets for getting stronger as he gets older

 Listen in on this Ninja’s inner game. This is one seriously motivating dude. 

 “You have to appreciate life. You’re here for a reason... You’re given an opportunity. A circumstance, yes, but an opportunity."

As Abel tells it: #WEAREALLABEL.

001: Joe Cross was Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Did you see the movie Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead? 20 million people did, and helped Joe Cross start a revolution.

Joe is a man truly living his purpose. He left his successful career in finance and directed his entrepreneurial efforts to bringing his message to the world. I had the pleasure of interviewing Joe (writer, producer, star of both films) upon the release of the sequel (cleverly known as “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2”) where we find out what happens AFTER he fasted for 60 days on nothing but juice, lost more than 80 pounds, and healed himself from the disease that plagued him for years.

Spoiler alert: things got harder.

In this episode Joe Cross tells us:

  • What happened after he lost more than 80 pounds and stopped filming Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 
  • Whether just adding juice to our diet is helpful (vs “Just Juice” fasting)
  • Common mistakes people make when trying juicing
  • The best time to juice, and when not to
  • Why on Earth he fasted for 60 days, filmed it…and then made Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2
  • What’s hard for him about staying healthy and what he does about it
  • His favorite juice recipe 
  • How to "reboot"
  • And, how to find juice near you!

  • Biodiversity is critical for a healthy gut

  • What does it mean to have an intelligent gut?
  • Why you should let your kids get dirty!!

SHOW NOTES: onairwithella.com/104/

Welcome to the third installment of this new weekly feature where I share one thing that I'm loving, one thing I'm not, and one simple, SUPER easy, clean-eating recipe. You can find the first one here, and last week's right here.

the GOOD: Wellness Mama website  

Katie is the "Wellness Mama" - one of my favorite go-to resources for all things natural living and wellness-related. 

the BAD: Teflon and Non-Stick Cookware
  • Teflon sucks. Read my full rant about this toxic household product: "Can Cookware be Toxic?"
  • Want more info? Here's the experts' take: 
  • So, what are your options?
  • What if you have no choice? Maybe you're visiting friends or spending a week in a vacation home. Here are some tips for when you are stuck with the nonstick cookware as your only option:
    • Don't preheat - heat at the lowest temperature possible to cook your food safely.
    • Don't put nonstick cookware in an oven hotter than 400 degrees.
    • Use an exhaust fan over the stove.
    • Keep pet birds out of the kitchen -- the fumes from an overheated pan can kill a bird in seconds. For real. Read the article!
  • Did you know? Skip the self-cleaning function on your oven. It cleans by heating to high temperatures, which can release toxic fumes from non-stick interior oven parts.

the YUMMY: Almost Oatmeal by Paleo Plan

You Need:

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a small pan over medium heat, stirring often until all is thoroughly combined and warm.
  • Try it topped with pears, bananas, fresh or dried berries, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, grated apples, or sliced almonds, and serve it with sausage or eggs for a truly satisfying morning meal.

See the original recipe here, and a TON of other simple recipes from Paleo Plan.

103: She Crushed $130K in Debt Before She Could Lose 130+ Pounds

SHOW NOTES: onairwithella.com/104/ She had to shed $130,000+ in debt before she could shed 130+ pounds.

You've heard my buddy Elizabeth Benton of Primal Potential on the show before, but you have not heard this story. In her own words:

In my late twenties I embarked on a totally different journey. I was determined to get out of debt. Between my husband and I, we had well over $100,000 in student loans and other small, miscellaneous debts – just over $130,000, actually. After reading a Dave Ramsey book, I focused on the goal with unrivaled intensity. We met, and surpassed, our goal in less than 2 years. Little did I know that the process of getting out of debt would teach me everything I needed to know to finally tackle my lifelong weight struggles. It’s true. The crazy parallels between paying off $130,000 and losing over 130 pounds are astonishing. Here’s what getting out of debt taught me about life and extreme weight loss.

This is one of several shows I'll be doing to continue our Life Balance Wheel series in the area of financial health, and it is chock full of information that will help you in many areas of your life balance wheel.

102: Create Your Money Breakthrough - Ryan Yokome

onairwithella.com/102/ How Do We Change Our Beliefs About Money? 

Ryan Yokome says there are typically two beliefs that stop people from making money doing what they love:

  1. The belief that it’s not right to make money from doing what you love. 
  2. The belief that this never enough money and you have to be careful with what you have.

How do you change these beliefs? We're talking all about it in today's episode. This is one of several shows I'll be doing to continue our Life Balance Wheel series in the area of financial health. 

What We Talk About:
  • What meaning are you associating with money?
  • How does your mindset affect your ability to attract money to you?
  • What's your money story? How to create a more empowering belief.
  • The evolution: Surviving --> Saving --> Serving 
  • Follow along! Click Here to Download the Life Balance Wheel Worksheet

GET THE NOTES: Onairwithella.com/101

Welcome to the second installment of this new weekly feature where I share one thing that I'm loving, one thing I'm not, and one simple, easy, clean recipe. 

 the GOOD: Liquid Multivitamins from Mary Ruth Organics
  • Mary Ruth Organics Premium Supplements – I was introduced to Mary Ruth Organics by a listener, and on a whim decided to try out both the morning and evening liquid vitamins. (I try to get most of my vitamins from REAL FOOD - especially after this interview with Gary Collins! - but I know I'm lacking in magnesium, vitamins D and B).
  • I started these about 3 months ago, and judging by my fingernails and hair, there’s something to this (they’re growing like crazy!).
  • I’m now on monthly auto-ship (saves 10%), and I find this far easier than pill-popping for some reason. Get a one month supply for $39.95 per bottle, or auto-ship and save a bit more. It comes to about $2.40 a day, and I am a total convert.
the BAD: Air Fresheners, Fragrances & Diffusers  the YUMMY: Spaghetti Squash Frittata

You Need:

  • 1 small spaghetti squash (need ~2 cups shredded)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup organic kale or spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced (or another veggie)
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano (or spices you like!)
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Bake the spaghetti squash: Wash and slice the squash in half (length-wise) and place cut sides face down onto a baking sheet with some water in the bottom of it. Roast about 25-30 minutes at 350F (until tender). When done, shred the insides with a fork into a bowl and set aside.   *I do this in advance and keep in fridge until I'm ready to make something!
  • Sauté your chopped onion, mushrooms, etc - add the greens last and don't overcook
  • Crack the eggs into the bowl with the squash and mix in the spices
  • Stir in the veggies and then pour the mixture into the sauté pan, cover and cook over medium heat for about 8 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.

BONUS! 5-minute version: I will often shortcut this recipe for a simple, SUPER easy dish with pre-cooked squash. Simply scoop some squash in a bowl and stir in 2 eggs and S&P. Cook as you would an omelet. Makes a big, fluffy, easy egg dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

What is the Truth About YOU?

Aaron Anastasi continues a theme we started with Bonnie Kelly in episode 088, and that we continue with under the Life Balance Wheel Series that we began in episode 082. Aaron wrote a killer guide to turning down our voices of limitation to "turn up the volume of our success." His new book, The Voice of Your Dreams was really eye-opening for me, and he and I dive deep into some of his core principles in this episode.

088: Uncovering the Core Beliefs that Wreak Havoc in Your Life - Bonnie Kelly

Author, speaker, coach Bonnie Kelly joins us to talk about Personal Development as we continue the Life Balance Wheel Series that we began in episode 082. She's helping us understand (so we can dismantle) those negative core beliefs that are shaping our view of the world and how we operate within it.

In This Episode: 

  • The power our subconscious mind has on our daily decision making
  • How our negative core beliefs are formed in early childhood and then validated through the years by supporting "evidence"
  • Once we adopt a belief, we habitually look for proof to support it...so we act in ways that confirm that belief 
  • For transformation, you must find the source of the issue, weaken its supporting evidence and dismantle it at its core...and, it IS possible
  • Bonnie shares her own story of true transformation

It's not a SKILL set, it's MINDSET. 

This is the first episode in our new series that we kicked off in episode 082. Elizabeth Benton, creator of Primal Potential is helping us master a mindset for lasting change. 

In This Episode: 
  • Mindset is never neutral. It's either working for you or against you.
  • "I know what to do but I just can't do it. What is my problem?"
  • So many people want change, sometimes even DESPERATELY, but they can't/won't do the work over the long term. What does Elizabeth suggest to break this pattern?
  • DO LESS, WIN FASTER.
  • What about people who are really struggling with past failures? How did Elizabeth stop beating herself up over the past?
  • FAILURE IS THE BEST TEACHER.
  • Download the Failure & Lessons Worksheet that I created for us 
  • "My life used to be ___ and now it is ___. I was doing great before, but now it's all turned upside down and I don't know what to do and have fallen so far ... "

080: the Pill, Your Fertility & Natural Birth Control

The birth control pill is convenient, prolific and utterly pervasive. It's even touted as the cure for much that ails us. The Pill is taken by millions of women at some stage in their lives, and few of us realize that it is not without long term side effects. Clear links have been established between hormonal contraceptives and health dangers, including infertility. It's time to get the facts, and to educate ourselves so that we're making informed decisions. In this episode, Jane Bennett shares some of her extensive research, and empowers us to take back control over our health and choices.

[show notes: onairwithella.com/079-jenna-elfman]

In This Episode:
  • Jenna spills the secret to her successful 26-year relationship and the simple truths she learned about making her husband Bodhi happy 
  • How has Jenna kept her sanity, her confidence and her centeredness within the Hollywood culture?
  • Jenna's 6 pillars of self care, including her take on:
    • sleep
    • alcohol
    • vitamins. supplements
    • hormonal balance
    • movement
  • Jenna's struggle with Hashimoto's and what she's doing to manage it

071: A Different View on Ending Binge Eating Forever w/ Jill Coleman

Is Moderation Possible?

Ok, I struggle with this, I really do. To me, abstinence from some foods does seem so much easier than moderating my intake - especially with trigger foods like sugar, nut butters and other items on my list. But, sometimes my "food rules" send me spiraling into what today's guest calls the "What the Hell" effect. It looks something like this:

- "I'm hungry" or "I want something to eat" (there's a difference!)- "I can't eat THAT, because it's not on my 'good' list"- "I'll eat this, this and this instead."- "Dammit, I still want THAT."- I eat that.- "I'm terrible. What a failure. I think I'll eat something since I'm already a total loss."- REPEAT.

Have you ever been there? Jill Coleman has, and today she's telling us how she got off the merry-go-round of deprivation, food rules, cravings, binges and all the noise and found a place of balance.

You asked, I answered...get the show notes at onairwithella.com/069-ask-ella/

1. Fiber supplements: There are a lot on the market and most seem like they are full of chemicals. Do you know of any that are easily added to a smoothie or coffee and beneficial? [Submitted by Heidi]

2. Are we killing and denaturing our vegetables when we cook them? Raw foodies will say you're killing your food. I'm a huge fan of juicing and want to get the most out of my food as possible. [Submitted by Aileen]

3. Can you discuss how to eat healthy when other people bring unhealthy foods into the house? I do the grocery shopping, but that doesn't stop my husband from bringing in tempting foods that I don't want to eat. Plus there's all the candy the grandparents load my kids with every holiday except Columbus Day. I hide it in the kitchen cabinet (out of sight, out of mind - for them, not me). [Submitted by "Sara"]

4. How do you develop the patience with yourself to keep working hard if you know you will never see the end result? In the pool, in the classroom, in my job, the harder I work, the sooner I see results. It's a different story when it comes to being your best self. [Submitted by Erica]

066: Confidence, Courage & Kicking More A** - Andrea Owen [RE-BROADCAST]

Being Fearless is B.S. 

"For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought could make me happy. Perfectionism, the need for control, and people pleasing ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out. The day I started living my life authentically, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life truly began and had immense meaning.

Today I make no apologies for who I am. I write about and talk about my own struggles with disordered eating, relationships, alcohol and all the other messy things that happen in real life." - Andrea Owen

What we talk about in this show:

•What drove Andrea to change/improve in the face of challenges that shut many people down?

•What is Andrea’s mission and purpose now?

•Managing our inner critic

•Control, isolation and perfectionism

•“Being Fearless is BS” – what is real  courage?

•"The way to gain confidence is by practicing courage" (read Andrea’s post here)

•Social media and the comparison trap

50:23

052: The Dorito Effect - Food Addiction, Flavor & the Most Compelling Lie Ever Told

"Processed food doesn’t contain the food that it is pretending to be." - Mark Schatzker

In his most recent book The Dorito Effect, best-selling author and food journalist Mark Schatker says "the cause of our food problem will not be found in individual nutrients." Rather, it's flavor, and its impact on human behavior (namely, eating), that has changed dramatically and led us so very far away from nutritional wisdom to our current blazing path toward obesity, diabetes and chronic disease. He's talking to us about how this underestimated component is demonstrated perfectly in what he's dubbed "the Dorito effect."

"Modern food may be the most compelling lie ever told." 

What We Talk About:
  • How the Dorito became the metaphor for modern food 
  • Why we won't solve our eating problem until we understand the role of flavor and human behavior
  • Food addiction is not fun. How even rats can come to rely on their next "hit."
  • "Natural flavor" = artificial flavorings, and they're in your pantry, your fridge, your freezer and nearly ever restaurant in existence 
  • What manufacturers to do everything from packaged foods to plain chicken breasts to cigarettes so that you'll crave them more (it's not pretty)
  • The role artificial flavors play in metabolic confusion...and weight gain
  • Why is this even a problem? Why we eat far more than we need to and what to do about it
  • So, what's the solution?

"Nothing tastes like what it is anymore.

Everything tastes like what we want it to be."

037: Gretchen Rubin - Mastering Habits for Life

SHOW NOTES!  Find all resources mentioned at http://www.onairwithella.com/037-gretchen-rubin-habits

 

Why can some people just wake up one day and decide to change their lives?

How does someone wake up one day and just quit smoking or quit drinking or stop eating sweets or processed food?

Why do some people struggle with forming habits that actually make them happy?

They know they make them happier, but they still struggle doing them.

Why do so many of us know what to do, but we just aren’t making the changes in our lives?  We know what to do but we just aren’t doing it.

 

How do we actually change?

 

These questions led me on a quest and that quest led me to Gretchen Rubin, the best-selling author, wife and mother of two.

I knew Gretchen already from her previous books; I read The Happiness Project years ago and I thought it was amazing. So when she came out with Better Than Before, her newest book, I picked up it up for myself.

I read Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives and I became a woman obsessed.  I chased Gretchen down. I said, “Oh, I know you’re on every television channel in the world. I know you’re at the top of iTunes with your own podcast.  I know that you are in extreme demand right now by every media outlet known to man, but could you maybe come talk to us? Because I believe you can change everybody’s lives who listens to this show that we do together.”

And guess what? Gretchen didn’t hesitate, and she said yes.  This show today is about how we actually create lasting change in our lives, and I hope that it is of as much value to you as my conversation with Gretchen was to me.  Let me know – 

What is one habit are you trying to break?

What is one habit you are trying to create?

035: Food Obsession & Disordered Eating with Madelyn Moon

onairwithella.com "I had the 'perfect' body and nowhere to take it." At a very young age, Maddy became obsessed with how food and exercise could make her look.

She developed a lifestyle, a body and an obsession that (in her own words) took the place of relationships, mental health, relationships, sleep, food, her menstrual cycle, relationships, a healthy metabolism, happiness, RELATIONSHIPS, and anything else that is truly important in life. 

In this Episode
  • Understanding how the messages we get from our families and as children can drive us...and sometimes need to be reprogrammed
  • What happened when Maddy entered the fitness industry, became a fitness model and had "everything she ever wanted" - and was miserable
  • The impact of food obsession and disordered eating on Maddy's life, body and relationships
  • How the need for control, attention, validation and acceptance can lead us away from our true selves
  • So you have the perfect body, now what?
  • Where Maddy’s confidence comes from now

How do we experience more intimacy, joy, communication and shared experiences with those people closest to us?

He worked on the nation's largest research project on marital success and parenting, and he currently hosts a podcast with his partner Kamala Chambers where they interview top relationship experts to learn more about creating positive, healthy, lasting love connections.

030: Chronic Inflammation & How to Feel 25 Years Old - Dr. Amy Shah

I believe that the nutrition and health messages we get from mainstream medicine are ALL wrong. - Amy Shah, M.D.

Dr. Amy Shah contacted me and asked if she could come on the show. Here's what she said:

"I am a double board certified medical doctor with one of the most successful practices in the country in Allergy/Immunology. I have trained at places like Harvard and Columbia. But about a year ago, I felt I needed more - I need to follow my calling into wellness and mind body medicine. Since then I started www.amyshahmd.com.

I think we all need to think bigger in healthcare! Let’s use the power of nutrition and the wisdom of Eastern principles, and bring it together with the amazing technological advances of the modern day.

Let’s solve the problems of inflammation (such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, obesity, etc), and hormone imbalances TOGETHER."

She got my attention.

We talk about this disconnect between traditional Western medicine and the wellness movement, and a whole lot more. 

Including:

- Chronic inflammation - what is it and why should we care?

- How to feel 25 years old again - and for much longer

- Why the food of 50-75 years ago isn't comparable to the same foods today

- What foods are naturally healing to the body

- What supplements will Dr. Amy take, and why she prefers to "eat her vitamins"

This time of year, there's a lot of garbage out there about "Detoxing" and "Cleansing."

This bonus episode is about shutting down mindless eating and stopping cravings in their tracks. Most cravings only lasts between 5 and 20 minutes, so implement any of these tips and override that overeating autopilo (click to expand)

 

What to Consume Instead: 

1. BCAAs – Branch Chain Amino Acids - read about how they work to reduce cravings by decreasing your appetite, keeping your blood sugar steady, and reducing cortsiol levels here, or you can really geek out here.  

2. L-Glutamine (amino acid supplement) - Many people swear by this supplement as a cravings killer. I like it because it's good for my gut, too.  This blog does a good job of explaining the science and includes references to the data.

3. Soluble fiber – I like mixing acacia fiber in a glass of water (you can also add to a smoothie) - here's why. Note: don't overdo it or it will clog you up!

4. Cocoa - go for unsweetened cacao powder and make a hot chocolate (just mix with warmed almond milk) or a delicious, super simple dessert like avocado pudding or any of these suggestions inspired by the Paleo community.

 

BONUS: The team over at Metabolic Effect recently launched a new product called Craving Cocoa that combines a lot of these ingredients (BCAA, fiber and cacao) all in one great mix! Get it here.

5. Dark chocolate – I like 85% and higher, but make sure the cacao content is at least over 70%. 

6. Fizzy water - I like seltzer/mineral water with lemon or lime added. Drink this first, then decide if you need the thing you were craving. 

7. Replacement treats - sometimes these will work to shut down those cravings. Pay attention to what works for you:

"You will never heal your body by starving it."        - Jonathan Bailor

You first heard me mention Jonathan Bailor’s name on episode 005 with Carrie Brown where we sang his praises and the praises of his book, The Calorie Myth. One of the reasons I’m such a fan is that encountering Jonathan’s work was one of the early and major steps in my wellness journey. Jonathan’s work, along with Carrie's recipes, truly helped me move from a diet-mindset to a conscious eating lifestyle.

Today he's sharing some of his findings with us in an effort to move us away from calorie-counting and toward a lifestyle that works.

Andrea Owen is a Certified Life Coach and author of 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS-Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve. She is also the creator of the Your Kick Ass Life blog and podcast. 

In her own words:

"For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought could make me happy. Perfectionism, the need for control, and people pleasing ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out. The day I started living my life authentically, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life truly began and had immense meaning.

Today I make no apologies for who I am. I write about and talk about my own struggles with disordered eating, relationships, alcohol and all the other messy things that happen in real life."

What we talk about in this show:

•What drove Andrea to change/improve in the face of challenges that shut many people down?

•What is Andrea’s mission and purpose now?

•Managing our inner critic

•Control, isolation and perfectionism

•“Being Fearless is BS” – what is real  courage?

•"The way to gain confidence is by practicing courage" (read Andrea’s post here)

013: How to Travel without Trashing Your Health [BONUS]

This episode was inspired by many of my peers, colleagues and the Ella “Fellas” and “Bellas” – many of whom have asked for healthy travel tips.

I typically make 2-3 trips per month, which adds up to dozens of flights per year. It can take a toll. As I have racked up some miles over the years, I have picked up some tips and tricks for reducing the stress on my body, the self-sabotage that can accompany travel, and some “preventative measures” that help keep me sane, fed and (relatively healthy) on the road.

Whether you travel once a year or weekly, I promise there will be some tips here that you haven't heard.

26:00
2017-10-07 20:50:47 UTC 26:00
012: Vani Hari, Food Babe: Fear Mongerer or Voice of the People?

Vani makes her living making food companies angry. She challenges them on the chemicals they use to make manufactured food more addictive, longer-lasting and as cheap as possible to produce. And she’s not quiet about it.

Is she alarmist? Unabashedly, yes. Her headlines are notoriously, um, cloying at times. (Did you catch the infamous “Do You Eat Beaver Butt?” post?)  ...And it would be easy to write her off as an obnoxious headline-grabber who is just looking to generate a following by making big companies like Kraft, Starbucks, Kellogg, and General Mills look bad. Except, isn’t there something backward here? 

Vani Hari receives death threats on a regular basis because she is telling the world what food manufacturers opt to put in our food supply. Huh?

What’s wrong with this picture?

From her site:

Back when Congress gave the FDA authority over food additives (in 1958), there were about 800 additives. Today, the number of known ingredients has swelled to more than 10,000 and continues to grow. Even the FDA’s Deputy Commissioner, Michael Taylor, recently said: “We simply do not have the information to vouch for the safety of many of these chemicals… we do have questions about whether we can do what people expect of us”. - Washington Post

Additional resource: “Food additives on the rise as FDA scrutiny wanes” - Washington Post

Well, maybe that isn't as scary as it sounds, because apparently new food ingredients are commonly approved by the manufacturer themselves, and not by the FDA. So, that's helpful, right?  [What the ???]

So, what does this mean to you?

Why should you care?

Here are a few reasons:- hyperactive children- asthma- diabetes- cancer- eczema- digestive disease- premature aging- obesity- lethargy…are all on the rise. Like, WAY. ON. THE. RISE. And, according to some experts, 70% of the average American diet now comes from processed food

Interestingly, a research review of 172 clinical studies published in the Journal of American Clinical Nutrition concluded that "virtually all chronic diseases are partially caused by our modern diet of engineered foods."

Related? You decide.

And isn't that the point?

Do you have to like the Food Babe? Nope. Do you maybe want to listen to the information that she’s making public, then decide for yourself whether you opt in or out of the chemical s&^% storm that makes up the majority of processed foods?

Uh, yeah. Please do. And, if you’re not a little riled up after hearing this episode, then you weren’t listening.

Hal Elrod is a #1 bestselling author, international Keynote Speaker, one of America’s top success coaches, ultra-marathon runner, grateful husband and proud father of two. All of this after being hit head on by a drunk driver at age 20 and found dead by EMS at the scene.

Despite being clinically dead for six minutes (!!), in a coma for six days with 11 broken bones, and being told he may never walk again, Hal defied the logic of doctors and the temptations to be a victim, and he bounced back to prove that ALL of us are capable of overcoming extraordinary adversity to create extraordinary results in our personal and professional lives.

But guess what... the accident and his recovery were NOT the biggest hurdle that he faced. That was still to come.

Listen in as Hal shares his wild ride with us, the lessons he learned, and the one practice that he started that became a revolution.

008: No Time is No Excuse - Neen James

Neen James wants you to create more moments in life that matter.

Meet my rocking Aussie friend, Neen James. Neen is a professional speaker and leadership expert who teaches people how to achieve twice as much in half the time, so they can create more significant moments in life that matter. 

I wanted Neen to join us because - without fail - the number one excuse I hear (and make) from people (myself) when it comes to why they (we) are not meeting their (our) wellness goals is...

“I don’t have time” 

Whether it’s no time to cook real food, sleep, move your body, or anything other form of self-care, everyone can say – and can mean it! – “I don’t have time.” So, what’s the cure? Listen in and we’ll share that and more.

What we talk about:

  • Neen’s mantra on leading an Ah-Mazing life
  • How the little things we do have the greatest impact
  • Your plan to conquer the world and manage your life in just 15 minutes!

005: SANE Carrie Brown: Diets are Stupid & Calorie Counting Doesn't Work

This episode is for anyone who has ever struggled with yo-yo dieting, wondered why counting calories didn’t work, or thought they could never cook for themselves – and, anyone who wants to hear the story behind the woman behind The Sane Show ☺

Carrie Brown made treats for the Queen of England and taught me how to cook. As cookbook author, photographer, blogger and co-host of the wildly successful podcast The Sane Show with Jonathan Bailor, Carrie is a master at making healthy eating a reality for those of us who are less talented in the kitchen. She learned from personal experience that diets don’t work, and she is ready to explain why and what to do instead! Spoiler alert: she wants you to eat more, but better, and exercise less, but smarter.

In this episode, I drill Carrie on how she went from a world-renowned pastry chef (making treats for the Queen of England!) to restaurant blogger, to advocate and voice-of-the-people for the *SANE lifestyle.

Things We Talk About…

- How Carrie gained weight, felt like a total hypocrite as a food blogger, and the circumstances that transformed her life

- Carrie’s personal experience with how frustrating and unsustainable the “calories in, calories out” methodology is

- The difference between losing weight and burning fat

- Ella’s revelation 2 years ago that cooking is easy if Carrie’s helping you. (If Ella can do it, you can, too!)

- How your bathroom scale is measuring the wrong thing

- How your body will regulate itself – so you can stop trying to control it

- Diets are stupid. Period.

- How to add / hide / cram loads of veggies to your diet without even realizing it

 

What Does *SANE Eating Mean, Anyway? 

*SANE is an acronym for determining how healthful a food is for us. In short, *SANE foods are very high quality, healthful foods and inSANE foods are low quality, unhealthful foods. *SANE eating means focusing on nutrient-dense foods containing water, protein, fiber, and whole-food fats. It generally means avoiding sugar of all kinds, grains, highly processed oils, many fruits, and starchy foods.

002: American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez: On Defeating Obstacles & Mastering Our Inner Ninja

Abel Gonzalez had to overcome a great many obstacles before he got anywhere near the American Ninja Warrior course.

American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez talks to us about mastering our inner Ninja first, how he's conquering life's obstacles and living his purpose to help others along the way.

“I had to start doing some self examination – who am I ? what am I doing?  

 Abel tells us:

  • How he left a great paying job in the oil industry to take a risk - waited in line for FIVE days - and ended up making history on NBC
  • What is was like going from “indestructible” to falling apart due to rheumatoid arthritis
  • What finally helped him overcome abandonment, anger and some pretty tough circumstances 
  • What “normal" people can do to train like a ninja (no gym required)
  • His two secrets for getting stronger as he gets older

 Listen in on this Ninja’s inner game. This is one seriously motivating dude. 

 “You have to appreciate life. You’re here for a reason... You’re given an opportunity. A circumstance, yes, but an opportunity."

As Abel tells it: #WEAREALLABEL.

001: Joe Cross was Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Did you see the movie Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead? 20 million people did, and helped Joe Cross start a revolution.

Joe is a man truly living his purpose. He left his successful career in finance and directed his entrepreneurial efforts to bringing his message to the world. I had the pleasure of interviewing Joe (writer, producer, star of both films) upon the release of the sequel (cleverly known as “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2”) where we find out what happens AFTER he fasted for 60 days on nothing but juice, lost more than 80 pounds, and healed himself from the disease that plagued him for years.

Spoiler alert: things got harder.

In this episode Joe Cross tells us:

  • What happened after he lost more than 80 pounds and stopped filming Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 
  • Whether just adding juice to our diet is helpful (vs “Just Juice” fasting)
  • Common mistakes people make when trying juicing
  • The best time to juice, and when not to
  • Why on Earth he fasted for 60 days, filmed it…and then made Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2
  • What’s hard for him about staying healthy and what he does about it
  • His favorite juice recipe 
  • How to "reboot"
  • And, how to find juice near you!

To me, wellness also includes taking preventative action to make sure that you’re being smart, staying safe and avoiding harm. To that end, I reached out to Chief Self-Defense Instructor for W.I.S.E., Maryam Aziz, to ask her how we can avoid putting ourselves at risk and what to do if we find ourselves in a threatening situation.

Are the 30,000 species of organisms in your gut behaving? 

Mine aren't. I came across Dr. Zach Bush in my personal quest to solve my prolonged gut issues. Even a 5-day fast didn't reset me fully. What am I doing wrong? Dr. Zach had a lot to say, including LOTS of surprising information.

What We Talk About:

  • Why gut health is EVERYTHING, but we've still got it wrong...
  • Biodiversity is critical for a healthy gut
  • What's the role of bacteria in our gut health, and what C-sections, antibiotics, and -- ARE YOU SITTING DOWN? -  probiotics are doing to hurt us
  • What does it mean to have an intelligent gut?
  • Why you should let your kids get dirty!!
  • Where most probiotics come from and why they don't work

Welcome to the third installment of this new weekly feature where I share one thing that I'm loving, one thing I'm not, and one simple, SUPER easy, clean-eating recipe. You can find the first one here, and last week's right here.

the GOOD: Wellness Mama website  

Katie is the "Wellness Mama" - one of my favorite go-to resources for all things natural living and wellness-related. 

the BAD: Teflon and Non-Stick Cookware
  • Teflon sucks. Read my full rant about this toxic household product: "Can Cookware be Toxic?"
  • Want more info? Here's the experts' take: 
  • So, what are your options?
  • What if you have no choice? Maybe you're visiting friends or spending a week in a vacation home. Here are some tips for when you are stuck with the nonstick cookware as your only option:
    • Don't preheat - heat at the lowest temperature possible to cook your food safely.
    • Don't put nonstick cookware in an oven hotter than 400 degrees.
    • Use an exhaust fan over the stove.
    • Keep pet birds out of the kitchen -- the fumes from an overheated pan can kill a bird in seconds. For real. Read the article!
  • Did you know? Skip the self-cleaning function on your oven. It cleans by heating to high temperatures, which can release toxic fumes from non-stick interior oven parts.

the YUMMY: Almost Oatmeal by Paleo Plan

You Need:

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a small pan over medium heat, stirring often until all is thoroughly combined and warm.
  • Try it topped with pears, bananas, fresh or dried berries, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, grated apples, or sliced almonds, and serve it with sausage or eggs for a truly satisfying morning meal.

See the original recipe here, and a TON of other simple recipes from Paleo Plan.

103: She Crushed $130K in Debt Before She Could Lose 130+ Pounds

SHOW NOTES: onairwithella.com/104/ She had to shed $130,000+ in debt before she could shed 130+ pounds.

You've heard my buddy Elizabeth Benton of Primal Potential on the show before, but you have not heard this story. In her own words:

In my late twenties I embarked on a totally different journey. I was determined to get out of debt. Between my husband and I, we had well over $100,000 in student loans and other small, miscellaneous debts – just over $130,000, actually. After reading a Dave Ramsey book, I focused on the goal with unrivaled intensity. We met, and surpassed, our goal in less than 2 years. Little did I know that the process of getting out of debt would teach me everything I needed to know to finally tackle my lifelong weight struggles. It’s true. The crazy parallels between paying off $130,000 and losing over 130 pounds are astonishing. Here’s what getting out of debt taught me about life and extreme weight loss.

This is one of several shows I'll be doing to continue our Life Balance Wheel series in the area of financial health, and it is chock full of information that will help you in many areas of your life balance wheel.

102: Create Your Money Breakthrough - Ryan Yokome

onairwithella.com/102/ How Do We Change Our Beliefs About Money? 

Ryan Yokome says there are typically two beliefs that stop people from making money doing what they love:

  1. The belief that it’s not right to make money from doing what you love. 
  2. The belief that this never enough money and you have to be careful with what you have.

How do you change these beliefs? We're talking all about it in today's episode. This is one of several shows I'll be doing to continue our Life Balance Wheel series in the area of financial health. 

What We Talk About:
  • What meaning are you associating with money?
  • How does your mindset affect your ability to attract money to you?
  • What's your money story? How to create a more empowering belief.
  • The evolution: Surviving --> Saving --> Serving 
  • Follow along! Click Here to Download the Life Balance Wheel Worksheet

GET THE NOTES: Onairwithella.com/101

Welcome to the second installment of this new weekly feature where I share one thing that I'm loving, one thing I'm not, and one simple, easy, clean recipe. 

 the GOOD: Liquid Multivitamins from Mary Ruth Organics
  • Mary Ruth Organics Premium Supplements – I was introduced to Mary Ruth Organics by a listener, and on a whim decided to try out both the morning and evening liquid vitamins. (I try to get most of my vitamins from REAL FOOD - especially after this interview with Gary Collins! - but I know I'm lacking in magnesium, vitamins D and B).
  • I started these about 3 months ago, and judging by my fingernails and hair, there’s something to this (they’re growing like crazy!).
  • I’m now on monthly auto-ship (saves 10%), and I find this far easier than pill-popping for some reason. Get a one month supply for $39.95 per bottle, or auto-ship and save a bit more. It comes to about $2.40 a day, and I am a total convert.
the BAD: Air Fresheners, Fragrances & Diffusers  the YUMMY: Spaghetti Squash Frittata

You Need:

  • 1 small spaghetti squash (need ~2 cups shredded)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup organic kale or spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced (or another veggie)
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano (or spices you like!)
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Bake the spaghetti squash: Wash and slice the squash in half (length-wise) and place cut sides face down onto a baking sheet with some water in the bottom of it. Roast about 25-30 minutes at 350F (until tender). When done, shred the insides with a fork into a bowl and set aside.   *I do this in advance and keep in fridge until I'm ready to make something!
  • Sauté your chopped onion, mushrooms, etc - add the greens last and don't overcook
  • Crack the eggs into the bowl with the squash and mix in the spices
  • Stir in the veggies and then pour the mixture into the sauté pan, cover and cook over medium heat for about 8 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.

BONUS! 5-minute version: I will often shortcut this recipe for a simple, SUPER easy dish with pre-cooked squash. Simply scoop some squash in a bowl and stir in 2 eggs and S&P. Cook as you would an omelet. Makes a big, fluffy, easy egg dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

091: Turn Your Dream Into Reality (Really.) with Aaron Anastasi

What is the Truth About YOU?

Aaron Anastasi continues a theme we started with Bonnie Kelly in episode 088, and that we continue with under the Life Balance Wheel Series that we began in episode 082. Aaron wrote a killer guide to turning down our voices of limitation to "turn up the volume of our success." His new book, The Voice of Your Dreams was really eye-opening for me, and he and I dive deep into some of his core principles in this episode.

088: Uncovering the Core Beliefs that Wreak Havoc in Your Life - Bonnie Kelly

Author, speaker, coach Bonnie Kelly joins us to talk about Personal Development as we continue the Life Balance Wheel Series that we began in episode 082. She's helping us understand (so we can dismantle) those negative core beliefs that are shaping our view of the world and how we operate within it.

In This Episode: 

  • The power our subconscious mind has on our daily decision making
  • How our negative core beliefs are formed in early childhood and then validated through the years by supporting "evidence"
  • Once we adopt a belief, we habitually look for proof to support it...so we act in ways that confirm that belief 
  • For transformation, you must find the source of the issue, weaken its supporting evidence and dismantle it at its core...and, it IS possible
  • Bonnie shares her own story of true transformation

This is the first episode in our new series that we kicked off in episode 082. Elizabeth Benton, creator of Primal Potential is helping us master a mindset for lasting change. 

In This Episode: 
  • Mindset is never neutral. It's either working for you or against you.
  • "I know what to do but I just can't do it. What is my problem?"
  • So many people want change, sometimes even DESPERATELY, but they can't/won't do the work over the long term. What does Elizabeth suggest to break this pattern?
  • DO LESS, WIN FASTER.
  • What about people who are really struggling with past failures? How did Elizabeth stop beating herself up over the past?
  • FAILURE IS THE BEST TEACHER.
  • Download the Failure & Lessons Worksheet that I created for us 
  • "My life used to be ___ and now it is ___. I was doing great before, but now it's all turned upside down and I don't know what to do and have fallen so far ... "

080: the Pill, Your Fertility & Natural Birth Control

The birth control pill is convenient, prolific and utterly pervasive. It's even touted as the cure for much that ails us. The Pill is taken by millions of women at some stage in their lives, and few of us realize that it is not without long term side effects. Clear links have been established between hormonal contraceptives and health dangers, including infertility. It's time to get the facts, and to educate ourselves so that we're making informed decisions. In this episode, Jane Bennett shares some of her extensive research, and empowers us to take back control over our health and choices.

071: A Different View on Ending Binge Eating Forever w/ Jill Coleman

Is Moderation Possible?

Ok, I struggle with this, I really do. To me, abstinence from some foods does seem so much easier than moderating my intake - especially with trigger foods like sugar, nut butters and other items on my list. But, sometimes my "food rules" send me spiraling into what today's guest calls the "What the Hell" effect. It looks something like this:

- "I'm hungry" or "I want something to eat" (there's a difference!)- "I can't eat THAT, because it's not on my 'good' list"- "I'll eat this, this and this instead."- "Dammit, I still want THAT."- I eat that.- "I'm terrible. What a failure. I think I'll eat something since I'm already a total loss."- REPEAT.

Have you ever been there? Jill Coleman has, and today she's telling us how she got off the merry-go-round of deprivation, food rules, cravings, binges and all the noise and found a place of balance.

1. Fiber supplements: There are a lot on the market and most seem like they are full of chemicals. Do you know of any that are easily added to a smoothie or coffee and beneficial? [Submitted by Heidi]

2. Are we killing and denaturing our vegetables when we cook them? Raw foodies will say you're killing your food. I'm a huge fan of juicing and want to get the most out of my food as possible. [Submitted by Aileen]

3. Can you discuss how to eat healthy when other people bring unhealthy foods into the house? I do the grocery shopping, but that doesn't stop my husband from bringing in tempting foods that I don't want to eat. Plus there's all the candy the grandparents load my kids with every holiday except Columbus Day. I hide it in the kitchen cabinet (out of sight, out of mind - for them, not me). [Submitted by "Sara"]

4. How do you develop the patience with yourself to keep working hard if you know you will never see the end result? In the pool, in the classroom, in my job, the harder I work, the sooner I see results. It's a different story when it comes to being your best self. [Submitted by Erica]

066: Confidence, Courage & Kicking More A** - Andrea Owen [RE-BROADCAST]

Being Fearless is B.S. 

"For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought could make me happy. Perfectionism, the need for control, and people pleasing ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out. The day I started living my life authentically, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life truly began and had immense meaning.

Today I make no apologies for who I am. I write about and talk about my own struggles with disordered eating, relationships, alcohol and all the other messy things that happen in real life." - Andrea Owen

What we talk about in this show:

•What drove Andrea to change/improve in the face of challenges that shut many people down?

•What is Andrea’s mission and purpose now?

•Managing our inner critic

•Control, isolation and perfectionism

•“Being Fearless is BS” – what is real  courage?

•"The way to gain confidence is by practicing courage" (read Andrea’s post here)

•Social media and the comparison trap

Many moons ago, I issued a challenge: will you interview me? Long-time listener Gigi accepted. Listen to her ask me the questions that she compiled from you, plus some that she threw in. We get a little silly, a little emotional, and, as always, we have a lot of fun.

What We Talk About 
  • How do I eat "mostly-vegetarian-paleo-ish?"
  • What is my story? What successes and failures led me to where I am right now?
  • Which episodes from 2015 are the most impactful for me?

052: The Dorito Effect - Food Addiction, Flavor & the Most Compelling Lie Ever Told

052: The Dorito Effect - Food Addiction, Flavor & the Most Compelling Lie Ever Told

"Processed food doesn’t contain the food that it is pretending to be." - Mark Schatzker

In his most recent book The Dorito Effect, best-selling author and food journalist Mark Schatker says "the cause of our food problem will not be found in individual nutrients." Rather, it's flavor, and its impact on human behavior (namely, eating), that has changed dramatically and led us so very far away from nutritional wisdom to our current blazing path toward obesity, diabetes and chronic disease. He's talking to us about how this underestimated component is demonstrated perfectly in what he's dubbed "the Dorito effect."

"Modern food may be the most compelling lie ever told." 

What We Talk About:
  • How the Dorito became the metaphor for modern food 
  • Why we won't solve our eating problem until we understand the role of flavor and human behavior
  • Food addiction is not fun. How even rats can come to rely on their next "hit."
  • "Natural flavor" = artificial flavorings, and they're in your pantry, your fridge, your freezer and nearly ever restaurant in existence 
  • What manufacturers to do everything from packaged foods to plain chicken breasts to cigarettes so that you'll crave them more (it's not pretty)
  • The role artificial flavors play in metabolic confusion...and weight gain
  • Why is this even a problem? Why we eat far more than we need to and what to do about it
  • So, what's the solution?

"Nothing tastes like what it is anymore.

Everything tastes like what we want it to be."

037: Gretchen Rubin - Mastering Habits for Life

SHOW NOTES!  Find all resources mentioned at http://www.onairwithella.com/037-gretchen-rubin-habits

 

Why can some people just wake up one day and decide to change their lives?

How does someone wake up one day and just quit smoking or quit drinking or stop eating sweets or processed food?

Why do some people struggle with forming habits that actually make them happy?

They know they make them happier, but they still struggle doing them.

Why do so many of us know what to do, but we just aren’t making the changes in our lives?  We know what to do but we just aren’t doing it.

 

How do we actually change?

 

These questions led me on a quest and that quest led me to Gretchen Rubin, the best-selling author, wife and mother of two.

I knew Gretchen already from her previous books; I read The Happiness Project years ago and I thought it was amazing. So when she came out with Better Than Before, her newest book, I picked up it up for myself.

I read Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives and I became a woman obsessed.  I chased Gretchen down. I said, “Oh, I know you’re on every television channel in the world. I know you’re at the top of iTunes with your own podcast.  I know that you are in extreme demand right now by every media outlet known to man, but could you maybe come talk to us? Because I believe you can change everybody’s lives who listens to this show that we do together.”

And guess what? Gretchen didn’t hesitate, and she said yes.  This show today is about how we actually create lasting change in our lives, and I hope that it is of as much value to you as my conversation with Gretchen was to me.  Let me know – 

What is one habit are you trying to break?

What is one habit you are trying to create?

onairwithella.com "I had the 'perfect' body and nowhere to take it." At a very young age, Maddy became obsessed with how food and exercise could make her look.

In this Episode
  • Understanding how the messages we get from our families and as children can drive us...and sometimes need to be reprogrammed
  • What happened when Maddy entered the fitness industry, became a fitness model and had "everything she ever wanted" - and was miserable
  • The impact of food obsession and disordered eating on Maddy's life, body and relationships
  • How the need for control, attention, validation and acceptance can lead us away from our true selves
  • So you have the perfect body, now what?
  • Where Maddy’s confidence comes from now

I think we all need to think bigger in healthcare! Let’s use the power of nutrition and the wisdom of Eastern principles, and bring it together with the amazing technological advances of the modern day.

Let’s solve the problems of inflammation (such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, obesity, etc), and hormone imbalances TOGETHER."

She got my attention.

We talk about this disconnect between traditional Western medicine and the wellness movement, and a whole lot more. 

Including:

- Chronic inflammation - what is it and why should we care?

- How to feel 25 years old again - and for much longer

- Why the food of 50-75 years ago isn't comparable to the same foods today

- What foods are naturally healing to the body

- What supplements will Dr. Amy take, and why she prefers to "eat her vitamins"

023: The Dos & Don't of Detoxing - with Dr. Jillian Teta

This time of year, there's a lot of garbage out there about "Detoxing" and "Cleansing."

This bonus episode is about shutting down mindless eating and stopping cravings in their tracks. Most cravings only lasts between 5 and 20 minutes, so implement any of these tips and override that overeating autopilo (click to expand)

 

What to Consume Instead: 

1. BCAAs – Branch Chain Amino Acids - read about how they work to reduce cravings by decreasing your appetite, keeping your blood sugar steady, and reducing cortsiol levels here, or you can really geek out here.  

2. L-Glutamine (amino acid supplement) - Many people swear by this supplement as a cravings killer. I like it because it's good for my gut, too.  This blog does a good job of explaining the science and includes references to the data.

3. Soluble fiber – I like mixing acacia fiber in a glass of water (you can also add to a smoothie) - here's why. Note: don't overdo it or it will clog you up!

4. Cocoa - go for unsweetened cacao powder and make a hot chocolate (just mix with warmed almond milk) or a delicious, super simple dessert like avocado pudding or any of these suggestions inspired by the Paleo community.

 

BONUS: The team over at Metabolic Effect recently launched a new product called Craving Cocoa that combines a lot of these ingredients (BCAA, fiber and cacao) all in one great mix! Get it here.

5. Dark chocolate – I like 85% and higher, but make sure the cacao content is at least over 70%. 

6. Fizzy water - I like seltzer/mineral water with lemon or lime added. Drink this first, then decide if you need the thing you were craving. 

7. Replacement treats - sometimes these will work to shut down those cravings. Pay attention to what works for you:

"You will never heal your body by starving it."        - Jonathan Bailor

You first heard me mention Jonathan Bailor’s name on episode 005 with Carrie Brown where we sang his praises and the praises of his book, The Calorie Myth. One of the reasons I’m such a fan is that encountering Jonathan’s work was one of the early and major steps in my wellness journey. Jonathan’s work, along with Carrie's recipes, truly helped me move from a diet-mindset to a conscious eating lifestyle.

Today he's sharing some of his findings with us in an effort to move us away from calorie-counting and toward a lifestyle that works.

Andrea Owen is a Certified Life Coach and author of 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS-Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve. She is also the creator of the Your Kick Ass Life blog and podcast. 

In her own words:

"For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought could make me happy. Perfectionism, the need for control, and people pleasing ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out. The day I started living my life authentically, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life truly began and had immense meaning.

Today I make no apologies for who I am. I write about and talk about my own struggles with disordered eating, relationships, alcohol and all the other messy things that happen in real life."

What we talk about in this show:

•What drove Andrea to change/improve in the face of challenges that shut many people down?

•What is Andrea’s mission and purpose now?

•Managing our inner critic

•Control, isolation and perfectionism

•“Being Fearless is BS” – what is real  courage?

•"The way to gain confidence is by practicing courage" (read Andrea’s post here)

013: How to Travel without Trashing Your Health [BONUS]

This episode was inspired by many of my peers, colleagues and the Ella “Fellas” and “Bellas” – many of whom have asked for healthy travel tips.

I typically make 2-3 trips per month, which adds up to dozens of flights per year. It can take a toll. As I have racked up some miles over the years, I have picked up some tips and tricks for reducing the stress on my body, the self-sabotage that can accompany travel, and some “preventative measures” that help keep me sane, fed and (relatively healthy) on the road.

Whether you travel once a year or weekly, I promise there will be some tips here that you haven't heard.

26:00
2017-12-15 02:07:06 UTC 26:00
012: Vani Hari, Food Babe: Fear Mongerer or Voice of the People?

Vani makes her living making food companies angry. She challenges them on the chemicals they use to make manufactured food more addictive, longer-lasting and as cheap as possible to produce. And she’s not quiet about it.

Is she alarmist? Unabashedly, yes. Her headlines are notoriously, um, cloying at times. (Did you catch the infamous “Do You Eat Beaver Butt?” post?)  ...And it would be easy to write her off as an obnoxious headline-grabber who is just looking to generate a following by making big companies like Kraft, Starbucks, Kellogg, and General Mills look bad. Except, isn’t there something backward here? 

Vani Hari receives death threats on a regular basis because she is telling the world what food manufacturers opt to put in our food supply. Huh?

What’s wrong with this picture?

From her site:

Back when Congress gave the FDA authority over food additives (in 1958), there were about 800 additives. Today, the number of known ingredients has swelled to more than 10,000 and continues to grow. Even the FDA’s Deputy Commissioner, Michael Taylor, recently said: “We simply do not have the information to vouch for the safety of many of these chemicals… we do have questions about whether we can do what people expect of us”. - Washington Post

Additional resource: “Food additives on the rise as FDA scrutiny wanes” - Washington Post

Well, maybe that isn't as scary as it sounds, because apparently new food ingredients are commonly approved by the manufacturer themselves, and not by the FDA. So, that's helpful, right?  [What the ???]

So, what does this mean to you?

Why should you care?

Here are a few reasons:- hyperactive children- asthma- diabetes- cancer- eczema- digestive disease- premature aging- obesity- lethargy…are all on the rise. Like, WAY. ON. THE. RISE. And, according to some experts, 70% of the average American diet now comes from processed food

Interestingly, a research review of 172 clinical studies published in the Journal of American Clinical Nutrition concluded that "virtually all chronic diseases are partially caused by our modern diet of engineered foods."

Related? You decide.

And isn't that the point?

Do you have to like the Food Babe? Nope. Do you maybe want to listen to the information that she’s making public, then decide for yourself whether you opt in or out of the chemical s&^% storm that makes up the majority of processed foods?

Uh, yeah. Please do. And, if you’re not a little riled up after hearing this episode, then you weren’t listening.

Hal Elrod is a #1 bestselling author, international Keynote Speaker, one of America’s top success coaches, ultra-marathon runner, grateful husband and proud father of two. All of this after being hit head on by a drunk driver at age 20 and found dead by EMS at the scene.

Despite being clinically dead for six minutes (!!), in a coma for six days with 11 broken bones, and being told he may never walk again, Hal defied the logic of doctors and the temptations to be a victim, and he bounced back to prove that ALL of us are capable of overcoming extraordinary adversity to create extraordinary results in our personal and professional lives.

But guess what... the accident and his recovery were NOT the biggest hurdle that he faced. That was still to come.

Listen in as Hal shares his wild ride with us, the lessons he learned, and the one practice that he started that became a revolution.

008: No Time is No Excuse - Neen James

Neen James wants you to create more moments in life that matter.

Meet my rocking Aussie friend, Neen James. Neen is a professional speaker and leadership expert who teaches people how to achieve twice as much in half the time, so they can create more significant moments in life that matter. 

I wanted Neen to join us because - without fail - the number one excuse I hear (and make) from people (myself) when it comes to why they (we) are not meeting their (our) wellness goals is...

“I don’t have time” 

Whether it’s no time to cook real food, sleep, move your body, or anything other form of self-care, everyone can say – and can mean it! – “I don’t have time.” So, what’s the cure? Listen in and we’ll share that and more.

What we talk about:

005: SANE Carrie Brown: Diets are Stupid & Calorie Counting Doesn't Work

This episode is for anyone who has ever struggled with yo-yo dieting, wondered why counting calories didn’t work, or thought they could never cook for themselves – and, anyone who wants to hear the story behind the woman behind The Sane Show ☺

Carrie Brown made treats for the Queen of England and taught me how to cook. As cookbook author, photographer, blogger and co-host of the wildly successful podcast The Sane Show with Jonathan Bailor, Carrie is a master at making healthy eating a reality for those of us who are less talented in the kitchen. She learned from personal experience that diets don’t work, and she is ready to explain why and what to do instead! Spoiler alert: she wants you to eat more, but better, and exercise less, but smarter.

In this episode, I drill Carrie on how she went from a world-renowned pastry chef (making treats for the Queen of England!) to restaurant blogger, to advocate and voice-of-the-people for the *SANE lifestyle.

Things We Talk About…

- How Carrie gained weight, felt like a total hypocrite as a food blogger, and the circumstances that transformed her life

- Carrie’s personal experience with how frustrating and unsustainable the “calories in, calories out” methodology is

- The difference between losing weight and burning fat

- Ella’s revelation 2 years ago that cooking is easy if Carrie’s helping you. (If Ella can do it, you can, too!)

- How your bathroom scale is measuring the wrong thing

- How your body will regulate itself – so you can stop trying to control it

- Diets are stupid. Period.

- How to add / hide / cram loads of veggies to your diet without even realizing it

 

What Does *SANE Eating Mean, Anyway? 

*SANE is an acronym for determining how healthful a food is for us. In short, *SANE foods are very high quality, healthful foods and inSANE foods are low quality, unhealthful foods. *SANE eating means focusing on nutrient-dense foods containing water, protein, fiber, and whole-food fats. It generally means avoiding sugar of all kinds, grains, highly processed oils, many fruits, and starchy foods.

002: American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez: On Defeating Obstacles & Mastering Our Inner Ninja

Abel Gonzalez had to overcome a great many obstacles before he got anywhere near the American Ninja Warrior course.

American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez talks to us about mastering our inner Ninja first, how he's conquering life's obstacles and living his purpose to help others along the way.

“I had to start doing some self examination – who am I ? what am I doing?  

 Abel tells us:

  • How he left a great paying job in the oil industry to take a risk - waited in line for FIVE days - and ended up making history on NBC
  • What is was like going from “indestructible” to falling apart due to rheumatoid arthritis
  • What finally helped him overcome abandonment, anger and some pretty tough circumstances 
  • What “normal" people can do to train like a ninja (no gym required)
  • His two secrets for getting stronger as he gets older

 Listen in on this Ninja’s inner game. This is one seriously motivating dude. 

 “You have to appreciate life. You’re here for a reason... You’re given an opportunity. A circumstance, yes, but an opportunity."

As Abel tells it: #WEAREALLABEL.

001: Joe Cross was Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Did you see the movie Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead? 20 million people did, and helped Joe Cross start a revolution.

Joe is a man truly living his purpose. He left his successful career in finance and directed his entrepreneurial efforts to bringing his message to the world. I had the pleasure of interviewing Joe (writer, producer, star of both films) upon the release of the sequel (cleverly known as “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2”) where we find out what happens AFTER he fasted for 60 days on nothing but juice, lost more than 80 pounds, and healed himself from the disease that plagued him for years.

Spoiler alert: things got harder.

In this episode Joe Cross tells us:

  • What happened after he lost more than 80 pounds and stopped filming Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 
  • Whether just adding juice to our diet is helpful (vs “Just Juice” fasting)
  • Common mistakes people make when trying juicing
  • The best time to juice, and when not to
  • Why on Earth he fasted for 60 days, filmed it…and then made Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2
  • What’s hard for him about staying healthy and what he does about it
  • His favorite juice recipe 
  • How to "reboot"
  • And, how to find juice near you!
