  • INFLAMMATION, WEIGHT GAIN AND EXHAUSTION ARE NOT JUST PART OF GETTING OLDER: How to heal with a KETO approach to eating.

    How the Keto Diet Can Help Autoimmune Conditions and Help Women Lose Weight After Age 40.

    Vivica Menegaz is blogger, nutritionist, and well-known ketogenic cookbook author. One of the reasons she loves the ketogenic diet is due to how it let her bounce back from a pre-diabetic state. She didn’t like the advice given by doctors and certainly never accepted her health problems as part of the aging process. She studied nutrition and learned under Dr. Deborah Penner, a person Vivica says pushed her into a career that just happened to be her calling.

    In part 1 of our interview, Vivica joins us to talk about how she embarked on her health and fitness journey and  her many struggles. We also discuss why she became adamant about helping herself and the many lessons she learned from her self-taught experience.

    “It’s your own problems and health challenges that lead you to become an expert in certain things.” Vivica Menegaz

    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    • When she started eating healthier.
    • How research in nutrition led her to the ketogenic diet.
    • How refusing to go the path her mom and grandma took became her stepping stone.
    • Why she’d rather study thyroid and adrenal as her specialty than female hormones.
    • Are women particularly vulnerable to adrenal and thyroid problems?

    About Vivica Menegaz

    From her online bio: Vivica Menegaz is a certified whole-food nutritionist, blogger, published author and one of the leading voices advocating for a food-based approach to healing. Vivica was the first one to use the now popular expression “Keto Paleo” to describe her lifestyle and way of eating.

    She is the founder of the “The Healing Foods Method’ – an 14 week online nutrition program where she works 1-on-1 with clients to turn their health around utilizing a therapeutic ketogenic diet for healing (keto paleo).

    Tracing back to her Italian origins, Vivica is a passionate cook whose love of healing food has been shared with millions through her blog, “The Nourished Caveman.”

    While living in Northern California, pursuing her self-sufficiency dreams and practice of nutrition, Vivica’s life came to a turning point when she discovered she was pre-diabetic. The nourishing Paleo foods she had been advocating we evidently not the whole solution to modern health problems. Fueled by this discovery, Vivica dove into research and found the ketogenic diet. It was love at the first bite.

    Within the first couple of months, her blood glucose levels dropped, she shed excess weight, her brain fog cleared up and her energy levels skyrocketed. After a year of successful keto paleo lifestyle Vivica’s own health journey took another turn as she was now diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism. Again she had to rely on her studies and practical applications to resolve those challenges, and that is how she became the first holistic nutritionist to successfully utilize a ketogenic approach as the foundation to endocrine rebalancing.

    Vivica’s therapeutic approach to food, lifestyle and supplementation, utilizes the healing power of foods and mindset, to address the incapacitating symptoms of many lifestyle-diseases that have plagued our modern lives.

    She has made it her mission to help others reclaim their health and quality of life.

    Vivica is also the author of 3 cookbooks: “The Ultimate Paleo Cookbook” 2015, together with 9 other bloggers, and “The big book of Fat Bombs” in 2016. Her latest book: “The Keto Paleo Kitchen” was released in December 2017. She also authored “The Essential Carnivore Diet Cookbook

    Losing weight or reaching any goal is like a game of poker. You have to have your cards and you play one card at a time.” Heidi Powell
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    • An eating disorder is not always anorexia or bulimia; it’s not being able to find balance with nutrition.

    • Finding balance is everything so take a break on your diet every now and then.
    • Doing everything strategically or slowly will lead to a long-term success specially when it comes to weight loss.

  • Fitting in Health & Fitness – A No BS Solution with Gary Vaynerchuk

    How Gary Vaynerchuk Got In The Best Shape of His Life.

    Gary Vaynerchuk is a man known to build not buildings but businesses. Just after college, he was able to elevate his family’s wine business from being a relatively small $3M to a whopping $60M business in just five years. He currently runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s most popular digital agencies. He’s also an angel investor or an investor who believes in start-ups, and also a venture capitalist with investments on large media companies such as Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. He eventually co-founded VaynerRSE, an investment fund worth $25M.
    In today’s episode, Gary talks about how his views on his health were able to drastically alter the way he thinks about his business and the way he interacts with not just his clients but also friends and family members. He also discusses his opinions on what it takes to get what you want and why he thinks positivity has become a necessity in an increasingly negative world.
    My belief in what people can accomplish in business has grown by my accomplishment around my health.” Gary Vaynerchuk
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    • A two-hour flight changed Gary’s perspective on his health even at the age of 38.
    • Keeping yourself accountable or being accountable to somebody else is a must when it comes to long term health.
    • Age doesn’t have to be a reason why you feel weak or out of breath.
    • There are no shortcuts to health, just the work. It’s the same when it comes to business.
    • Loser mentality is when people hang around other people who just want to complain and not work on a solution.
    • Being good bleeds over but people need to be focused on not crippling themselves living at the standard they can’t live up to.
    • Optimism and positivity is suppressed. Negativity is loud. You need to take that positivity even if people don’t want to hear it.
    • Money, power, fame, it changes nobody. All it does is expose us who they actually are.
    Key Takeaways:
    • You need to know what works for you to achieve the goals other successful people have reached. No need to do it his or her way.
    • Nobody’s going to feel sorry for you. Every winner in your life has zero sympathy for you. Life is harder for some people, life may be harder for you and it needs to change. You can be part of the change by winning and using your money and power to change things.

    Below is the #dailyvee video that captures Gary doing this interview with me. What’s funny– after we ended this recording, the software I was using back then ERASED all of the interview. Luckily since they filmed his day they passed on the audio and truth be told, I had to go back and guess at what my questions were….that was interesting. But either way, it was totally fun reconnecting with my friend and mentor, and a guy who is just the REAL DEAL.
