much Patricia thanks for saying you love learning Abdul what’s going on my friend so let’s talk a little bit about protein I’m going to jump back in back and forth and say thank you to people because I know with these live broadcasts you know people will hop on then people will jump off and I want to make sure that people that are coming on this broadcast get a chance to hear me say thank you so thank you all for saying congratulations and one last time before I get into the topic at hand please go ahead and hit that thumbs up button give this video a big ol thumbs up and also share and invite some people all right so I do want to talk a little bit today about protein the reason I want to talk about protein is you all know my stance is a little bit different from the normal fitness industry person I don’t come at you from the angle of constantly be taking protein powder they don’t come at you from the angle of just you know blood and guts in the gym all the time I come at it from science to come at it from realism and I come at it from solid nutrition so let me explain what I have to say about protein and then I’m going to turn it over to questions but I do want you to continue commenting letting me know where you’re watching from keeping the comments coming in because that engagement that helps us out here on YouTube so one of the things that has bothered me in the fitness industry is it the fact that we’re constantly told we need to be consuming one gram per pound of body weight in terms of protein one gram of protein per pound of body weight why does that bother me what bothers me simply because there’s not a whole lot of science to back that up and you guys know me I’m always about the research I’m always about the science so I took my team and we dug deep into this we dug really deep we spent about a week and a half just diving into this about okay well how much protein do we really need I know because I’ve tested my urea nitrogen levels I’ve tested my nitrogen levels I know how much protein I need but I’m a different guy I’m not the same as everyone else I want to see some real studies so what we looked at was one particular study it mind you I’m going to have a more formal video come out on this but it’s a good topic to talk about this one study took a look at individuals I can’t remember I think it was 65 individuals and what they did is they took one group of people and they gave them 0.62 grams of protein for four weeks okay 0.62 grams per pound of bodyweight for four weeks okay and then someone says who’s that behind me there’s no mind me that’s my window those are blinds okay so one group had 0.6 two grams of protein per pound of body weight and the other group had 1.19 grams per pound of body weight well of course at the end of four weeks what they wanted to study was how much did this person these people lose in terms of muscle mass and how much strength did they potentially lose well guess what guys absolutely no change between the two no change no change in strength no change in mass and that’s pretty darn impressive so what they ultimately concluded the author concluded and ended up going on later to publish found that basically around 0.7 to 0.75 is really the tolerable upper limit before you’re really going to start seeing diminishing returns after that you don’t start getting as much benefit with your protein anymore and this is contrary to what popular belief is and contrary to what the fitness industry will constantly tell you guys if you can make sure you keep the comments coming if you’re just joining in make sure you comment where you’re watching from if you haven’t already please hit that thumbs up button it helps me out a lot and it shows and tells me that I’m doing some good content so I really appreciate that and you need to invite some people so Mary you ask if 0.6 is adequate in my opinion it’s definitely adequate this study showed that it was adequate but a lot of people might be saying well Thomas this was only a four we study you know what about some longer-term studies well I’ve got an answer for you because we took a dive a little bit deeper there’s even a meta-analysis that looked at it even further but this next study was a three-month study okay in this three-month study not only looked at body composition change strength muscle mass but they also looked at hormone changes okay this study was a little bit different what this study looked at was one group of people consumes 0.7 grams of protein sorry 0.7 grams of protein per pound of body weight and the next group looked kind of tongue-twister today the next group consumed a little over one gram per pound of body weight they did this one for three months okay what they found in this study again was no change not only no change in strength not only no change in body composition but no change in even hormonal state pretty darn fascinating so what does this all mean I mean okay we know now that maybe protein isn’t as much as it’s cracked up to be it’s not as amazing as we all think it is but it all still comes down to that wonderful thing called nitrogen balance okay and the nice thing about nitrogen balance is simply the fact that if you consume enough protein you’re in what is called a positive nitrogen balance positive nitrogen balance means you have enough protein in your system to prevent you from losing muscle and even potentially building some muscle at that point now a negative nitrogen balance means that you have not enough protein in your system compared to what you need that means you’re burning muscle okay that means your catabolized you’re breaking down tissue you don’t want to be there people that are sick people that have cancer they are usually in a negative nitrogen balance so that’s what we don’t want now in neutral nitrogen balance that’s going to be where you aren’t even okay where you’re taking in just enough protein to maintain what you’ve got and potentially add a little bit of size or at least recover that’s exactly where we want to be now there’s ways that we can measure this when you consume a lot of protein and you were to use a nitrogen test strip which you can get you use the nitrogen test strip you urinate on it and it will essentially tell you you have enough nitrogen you if you have too much nitrogen in your urine that means you’re consuming way too much protein if you have low levels of nitrogen means you need to increase it you can cross-reference that with how much you’re taking in not saying you go home and you do this but what I’m saying it’s given me a good test litmus test so to speak to be able to determine if it’s something that will actually work and if it’s something that will tell me how much protein I’ve really consumed and if it reads it and if I’m going to lose size it will at least tell you based on how much protein you consume how much your excreting and how much you’re using so I’ve done this kind of myself and what I found was very very interesting I found that I was in a positive nitrogen balance guys just so that you know I’m about 190 pounds okay I was finding that I could consume just over 100 grams of protein in still being a positive nitrogen balance and I’m a fairly heavily muscled guy so I thought that was very intriguing and I considered a you know the fact that okay maybe I’m in a different state maybe I’m not training as heavily right now so let me go ahead and try this again so what did I do I went out and I tried it again two months later when I was on a heavier training phase okay when I was lifting a little bit heavier and you was breaking down muscle tissue well the only thing that changed was about 10 grams of protein more that I needed so now I went into about a hundred and ten hundred fifteen grams protein that was required to maintain a positive nitrogen balance so I thought that was pretty darn intriguing okay now that’s just one you know personal study that’s my own kind of thing well let’s talk about the health side of things now if you’re consuming a lot of protein you are doing a fair bit of damage to your body and what I mean by that is simply the fact that high level of free radicals okay I mean it really does have an impact on your body okay I’m a muscular guy right okay I I eat protein I’m not going to lie alright but I’m also a realist and when I look at things and I see that the high levels of protein consumption do lead to high levels of blood urea nitrogen levels which is a clear indicator of kidney stress and dehydration I’m kind of led to believe that I may not want to consume as much protein as I you know led to believe I should be so the fitness industry will tell us we need to be consuming a lot while the fitness industry doesn’t really care what happens to our pancreas the fitness industry doesn’t really care about what happens to our kidneys I do and I’m sure you do and we want to be doing this for a long time now the interesting thing is dehydration comes into play dehydration simply because protein is technically a diuretic has a diuretic effect on the body so when that happened you end up putting strain on your kidneys and that’s when you plug your e’en nitrogen levels elevate when your blood your nitrogen levels elevate it means your kidneys are working a little bit harder or a lot harder depending on how much and that’s not good on your body how do we know there’s a direct correlation with protein in that well there’s multiple studies there too one in particular was kind of interesting because it took 150 pound individuals took three of them three 150 pound individuals that were endurance athletes okay so these are any people that aren’t even training that heavily they gave one group 68 grams of protein they gave the nother one 123 grams they gave another one 246 well guess what the ones that consumed more protein and high levels of blood urea nitrogen levels and chronically high levels of dehydration throughout the period while they’re consuming that much protein we all know what too much protein or I’m sorry what a little bit of dehydration can do in terms of your actual muscle building so well it’s going to hurt that if you don’t have enough water if you’re not hydrated the cells don’t volumize you don’t build muscle you don’t burn fat it doesn’t happen nearly as smoothly as it should so that’s just a little bit of help for you okay so now the question comes into play about ketosis because a lot of people are asking about ketosis so if you are talking about how much protein you should take in and the ketogenic state then you’re dealing with a couple other factors now you have to monitor what’s called gluconeogenesis okay gluconeogenesis is where if you consume too much protein it actually kicks you out of ketosis that’s not important okay I’m sorry that’s extremely important sorry I was reading a comment as that came in that’s extremely important if you have too many grams of protein your body will convert that into carbohydrates and it will kick you out of ketosis other than videos on that before so I don’t want to go into a whole lot of detail I’m going to pause for one second and say thank you again because I’ve got a lot of people joining in here and this is an opportunity for me to talk to a lot of people live and say thank you thank you to the moon and back for helping me reach 100,000 subscribers and blue past eight yesterday I don’t know how much I can express what that means to me by the way someone asks hundred ninety pounds with I’ll tell I’m five nine and a half five ten not very tall I mean I can’t express how much it means to get to a hundred thousand drivers that may not seem like a lot to some because there’s some out there that have a million but the fact that I’ve gone up almost a hundred thousand subscribers in like a year and a half I’m very very pleased with and I could not do it without you guys so this is a sincere sincere thing like to seriously say thank you because you guys on YouTube are and I mean no disrespect to my facebook followers because I have a lot of people that follow me on Facebook and on YouTube so zero disrespect to them but I will say my YouTube crowd is the most committed loyal honest group of people that I’ve had the pleasure of serving content to you guys are so loyal you watch my videos you comment you are always driving me forward pushing me forward you are you’re arguing with me when I’m wrong which is cool because I’ve been wrong in a couple videos up side of the wrong studies and you guys call me out politely which is so freakin awesome that you guys can do it cordially so I just I mean like I’m beside myself we reached a hundred thousand I was in my office I shared it with my office and I wish I had a little bill or siren that could have gone off and and we’re gonna make this awesome we’re gonna absolutely just crush this together and you guys are I just owe you a lot so thank you guys thank you so much make sure you guys keep on commenting where you’re watching from so that I can say hello to you and personally shout you out if I get a chance someone says I need to host a two-week retreat I would love to that would be awesome I don’t know if I can find two weeks off though who’s going to shoot all the videos right so Dylan you’re welcome man says thanks protein shake Toronto Canada in the house we’ve got watching in New York City what’s going on New York City a lot of people asked him a protein isolate or concentrate isolate is one you want to go for it’s just like the name implies whey protein isolate is protein that’s been isolated away from the way okay so whey protein concentrate still has all the lactose it still has all the milk solids it still has all the stuff you don’t really want okay it even has some casein eight blends the kasenyi blends that are still left over in the way that don’t always get extracted or extrapolated through the process ends up being very very bad they contain something called B C m7 what B C m7 is it contains something called a two or a one casein eight which is a type of protein that is very very very very dangerous for the body and that’s why you see a lot of proteins now we’re switching over to a two so we want whey protein isolate is not dairy-free whey protein isolate simply means that it is the whey protein that has been isolated away from the west of the way so and someone’s asking me to forecast these live events the part part is I can’t always I post a video and say what time I’m going to go live like that although I would love to it would be really really helpful I just can’t always cuz sometimes I go live impromptu but I will start keeping that in mind and guys if you can make sure you please hit that thumbs up button we’ve got a lot of people on this broadcast but not everyone’s hitting that thumbs up button so please please please hit that like button it’s going to tell YouTube that I’m creating good content and super super good it gets things out there what’s up Biloxi Biloxi Mississippi we’ve got plant-based proteins are not what you would recommend I’m a huge fan of P protein believe it or not pure P protein is amazing so totally not bad at all what are your thoughts on the idea that higher quality approaches such as beef or whey causes accelerated aging that’s a good question the thing is calories in general ladies and gentlemen will totally cause an effect on Aging you know that I’m big on fasting I’ve done a lot of videos on fasting and I’m a huge fan of it the thing with fasting is the reason it’s good is simply because you’re taking down that metabolic stress every time you consume something whether it’s protein whether it’s carbohydrate whether it’s fat there is a metabolic process that occurs that metabolic process causes free radicals it’s kind of like first grade health right every time there’s free radicals and those are bad but people don’t always realize is every time we eat we’re causing that so that’s why fasting is doing such an amazing thing for so many people’s bodies because it’s taking down the load the frequency of which we are susceptible is that’s why I’m a big fan of it I don’t fast every day I fast 1 2 3 days a week depending on how I feel I I came out of ketosis yesterday it was planned so I fast today it feels great I had carbs in my system my glycogen levels are restored so I figured it’s a great data fast I actually feel on top of the world when I fast and it’s mainly because your body is actually getting a chance to recover for a little bit you’re resetting your abuse and you’re actually really give your chance a body a chance to recover how does that tie back to the aging question because every time you eat something you are essentially increasing those levels of free radicals that do trigger inflammation they do trigger C reactive protein levels they do trigger leukotriene they do trigger tumor necrosis factor they do trigger all these things all these lucre trains b6 all they’ve got let’s say we’ve got interleukin 6 elevates in or look at eight elevates all these things that we don’t really want in chronic levels so as I’m going to turn it back over to some questions what is a healthy testosterone level and how do you measure at someone asset for a forty-year-old it’s a good question so I’ll answer that really quick that I would say you know for that age group if you can be you know 600 you’re in a good range I think 600 is a nice healthy range it’s not too high it’s not too low you start getting below 400 you’re starting to get into a little bit of from low levels you may want to monitor being candy says can’t wait for me to come out with a book you know I’ve been working on a book for a while it’s something I don’t have a whole lot of time to sit down and write but it’s a great idea and great question I’m going to come out with it here pretty soon hopefully in the next year and a half or so if you’re fasting for a few days and it’s known your body interest ketosis during that timeframe you want to keep the ketosis right up to the fess can you jump right into keto that’s a tremendous question and you said it so eloquently yeah you totally can so there’s no reason why you can’t it’s just a particular transition the way that you want to go from fasting into ketosis is going to be by actually breaking your fast still with a tiny bit of carbs okay still like one rice cake just like 78 grams of carbs all that’s going to do is it’s going to spike your insulin for just a second okay that’s going to be very very important shout out to kinder Lee there you go someone really wants me to do that kinder lee what’s going on so if we break that fast with a little bit of an insulin spike it’s going to at least get us in a position where we can break the fast immediately not maybe have this crazy blood sugar drop later on after you break your fast with some proteins and fats so then 30 40 minutes later then you want to start incorporating your fats you want to start incorporating your proteins and then go right into ketosis you’re totally fine guys if you’re just joining in make sure you comment let me know where you’re watching from someone asked if I believe in using exhaustion of ketones to apt after a cheat cheat date so here’s my thoughts on exogenously tones I feel like so much as I should try to get scheduled an interview with Gary Vaynerchuk I probably should you know I actually have some context I could reach them so that wouldn’t be too bad exogenous ketones let’s talk about those for a second the thing with a dot exogenous ketones is they’re ketones their artificial ketones so if you just had a cheap meal you have glucose in your system okay you have carbs already circulating so if you go into exhaustion is ketones then think about what’s happening you just give your body two fuel sources and it has to preferentially pick one so it’s either going to use the glucose that’s already around because you just had a cheap meal in which case the beta-hydroxybutyrate exogenous ketone salts are going to be considered waste food right they’re not going to be used right which means I don’t know what they’re going to do the liver has to metabolize them again has to excrete them but the other alternative is what if your body preferentially wants to run on the beta-hydroxybutyrate and you have glucose floating through your system well then that glucose is going to cycle right on through and go through de novo lipid Genesis and restored as fat does that make sense so we’re basically talking about if we use exogenous ketones while we have glucose and glycogen stores hi we could ultimately end up restoring that glycogen it’s fat so I’m not a big fan of using exhaustion as ketones to try to get back into ketosis I am a fan of using exhaust ketones when you’re already deep into ketosis that’ll help you out a lot because then you can cows yeah you get a little mental clarity out of it you ever wonder how I could articulate so well in my videos yeah exhaustion is ketones helped me out a little bit which ones do I use I use simple ones that are straight beta-hydroxybutyrate because I’m not a big fan of all these multi-level marketing schemes that are out there with the exhaustion is ketones because I feel like they quite honestly they put a bad taste in everybody’s mouth Adam hey guys let me show you something first of all a lot of my team has already left the office slackers right check these out so I was at Costco and this is where one of my editors sits but these are these are so cool I was supposed to check this out like check this out how about that okay I want my I want everyone that’s at my office to be able going up just stand up so now I can say here and she was sitting down earlier I got another one back there so stand up desks all the way around right super cool and then when I’m in my office okay then I’ve got one of my other editors sits here so where a lot of the magic happens okay and then I get the old one I get the one that’s a stand up desk that’s manual but anyway I just I wanted to show you guys this is where the magic happens okay this is where a lot of the videos get edited I’m after hours right now so everybody’s kind of out and about then here’s the here’s the break room okay we basically got a little Keurig nothing fancy right okay microwave but nobody uses because I’m want to get upset with them if anyone ever uses the microwave anyway we’ve also got little Timmy here just giving you a quick office tour this is my pup Timmy you’ve seen him in some of my videos he’s a good man he’s always around so everyone everyone that likes dogs go ahead and say hi to Timmy just so that we can say hello I know you guys are watching no you guys are paying attention I saw the engagement just went up when I did a little office tour so I’m glad you guys like that I’m glad you guys like seeing seeing the office seeing what I’m doing up everyone saying hi Timmy say hi Timmy say hi back guys if you like Timmy make sure that you hit that thumbs up button make sure that you get some good engagement going you guys are so awesome I know the video is kind of crooked right now I’m sorry about that yeah you guys are awesome thank you guys everyone’s saying hi to Timmy and Timmy’s off my lap so you guys mr. Rosner you guys are saying some funny things what’s the best thing to eat before you sleep best thing to eat before you sleep if your depends if you’re in ketosis you want to use something high in magnesium so you generally want to have like some some almonds something like that sorry this is coming across crooked right now I hold a little gimbal for my phone and it’s like making it a thing crooked yeah he’s camera shy so if you’re not in ketosis having some carbs before you go to bed is actually a good thing I’ve done videos on that how having carbs and increases levels of serotonin which therefore helps the absorption of tryptophan tryptophan helps the conversion melatonin which is really really good what about eggs before bed I’m not a big fan of eggs before bed mainly because the sulfur in them can blow you and can inhibit digestion a little bit throughout the night time which is not a big fan of they’re also fairly hard to digest believe it or not they’re really really good for you but they’re hard to digest and that means that you are not giving your body the chance it needs to actually recover if I use pre-workout what kind do I recommend I usually make my own so I usually if I’m going to make a pre-workout I’ll use a little bit of beta alanine a little bit of caffeine or let’s have it with some coffee then I’ll use a little bit of that beta alanine excuse me then I use arginine that’s really it don’t need much in it I am big fan of Thea cream th ei crie it is a dopaminergic effect it is an adenosine receptor so it does affect our how do I say this it is adenosine a genic so it does affect the adenosine receptors which means it occupies the adenosine receptor the same way caffeine does except there’s no crash so Thea queen is awesome and I hope that that kind of makes some sense what else to say there is a company named shear strength labs you’ve probably seen some of my videos for them I do videos for them now and then I actually do endorse them because a lot of their products are good so in terms of pre-made pre-workout that’s a good one too your strength labs someone has said they missed a bunch of this it’s going to be available and also the topic in terms of protein in general the actual are you having too much or are you having too little I have a full produced fully edited video that’s going to go live here probably next week on this the same topic that I’m talking about right now just in more depth so you guys will see that someone asked if I like Chinese food and I do like Chinese food but I don’t really get the chance to have it much I will say that one of my favorite cheat meals however is Thai food drunken noodles are awesome if you guys have ever had pad thai obviously pad thai has some things in it that you know aren’t real good you’re combining a lot of carbs with a high amount of fat from the peanuts so not the best thing for a cheat meal spiking the insulin with some fat equals me not doing too good right but drunken noodles if you’ve ever had those are unreal they’re lower fat they’re the wide rice noodles still no gluten in them now Here I am talking about like food that’s not good for you but it’s really really good in terms of having a cheat meal so it’s probably one of my favorites how do I feel about caffeine and theanine um you know I’ll be completely honest I’m a humble guy Oh me realistic I don’t know a whole lot about the world that the combination of caffeine Athena and I know you know obviously a lot of pre workouts do that I just don’t know what the really interaction is there so that’s a good idea for a video though among crew good or bad Munford it’s good it is a sugar alcohol it is a you know does technically affect your body that way which means if you’re prone to digestive issues you might find you end up having a little bit of some digestive upset but anyway guys I want to make sure we’ve got a lot of people that keep on joining in people leave coming coming on can you make sure you hit that thumbs up button for me I really want to get this video up to like 500 thumbs up time I end it so if you can just do me a huge favor hit that like button hit the thumbs up button and also continue to comment where you’re watching from Dillon black says jump noodles are the best so he’s definitely had them protein levels on a cut they don’t change that’s the thing they don’t change at all Oh Ali has some nice words to say okay well that’s cool what’s going on in Winnipeg Manitoba what’s going on time runner what’s going on Nolan question how do it correctly I come out of Quito for a photo shoot that’s a good question everybody’s going to respond different when you come out of ketosis for a photo shoot you typically want to make sure that you’re keeping your water very very high okay you want to make sure that you’re not depleting your water at all when you go into that shoot so even if you are normally going to cut water you don’t want to you want to make sure that you’re drinking a lot of water slowly incorporating carbs so anyway so guys it’s awesome looks like we have some haters on this one some guys that don’t like me so that’s cool it’s always nice to do a live broadcast and face everyone head-on so it’s a perfect time for me to say guys if you don’t like my content you don’t like my stuff the Internet’s a big place go follow someone else go watch someone else it’s all good so thank you guys I appreciate it a lot of people that are already standing up on their stuff it’s awesome so do I drink beer no I’m not a big beer drinker at all in fact doesn’t really do much for me at all keto ice cream I did see a recipe for keto ice cream using coconut cream at one point so Patricia asked me to talk about microwaves and food believe it or not the studies actually that microwaves don’t affect food that much believe it or not it’s not as bad as people think what ends up actually being worse is the actual radiation if you’re standing close to a microwave what the effect on food it does neutralize some of the nutrients and it does actually kill off some of the B vitamins things like that so that’s a problem but whatever yes I have to say you guys are awesome like I mentioned one for one second that I’ve got a hater on here and you guys just like go to that for me I have the most awesome group of subscribers I could ever imagine you guys are super awesome what’s my thoughts on uncured bacon Younker bacon is good to go I’m sorry low-power mode there I’m not a super super seasoned person on uncured bacon I know the process and how it works and how our body handles it a little bit differently I use on cured bacon and ketosis so you’re all good there electrolytes for a cramp generally Jennifer the electrolyte issue is more of an issue with and it’s more of an issue with magnesium more than anything and a lot of times electrolyte drinks and things like that they end up having just a lot of potassium a lot of sodium magnesium is more expensive so a lot of times the electrolyte drinks and stuff like that don’t have a lot of magnesium and will testosterone make your hair thicker generally yeah it can so anyway guys I’ll probably start wrapping this up here in just a minute but I do want everyone gosh you guys are awesome we’ve got people asking about cooked or uncooked veggies that’s a long video and I have one that I created for that I’m going to post it up live here pretty soon but I will say when it comes to veggies don’t shy away from the frozen veggies because the frozen veggies believe it or not they are frozen at the peak of harvest when they contain the most nutrients they’re also frozen right after they’re picked which means they don’t have time to oxidize they don’t have time to oxidize they’re going to be more nutritiously dense and they’re going to be a lot healthier for you and easier to digest so that will help you out right then and there guys one last round make sure you comment where you’re watching from and then that way we can just say hello to everybody yeah oli really doesn’t like me I’m sorry Olli I’m really really sorry so I’m glad you’re still hanging out though New York City in the house what’s going on protein of a keto protein ice cream that sounds like a good idea keto and pregnancy I will answer that since you guys might know that my wife pregnant right now we are five months pregnant we’ve got a baby due in October little boy and we are stoked is can’t wait I don’t know if you guys do know that I talk about on Facebook I don’t talk about on YouTube all the time so got the baby on the way we’ve been monitoring a lot of that putting that on Facebook on how the bait how Amber’s doing how she’s eating and stuff like that it’s awesome so I will tell you ketosis during pregnancy is not the most recommended thing simply because it’s not investigated a lot yet and why would you want to risk that you know ketosis and life ketosis and day in and day out that’s all studied and read in and understood and referenced but ketosis in pregnancy is a whole new world and do we really want to try that because the problem is is a lot of the the fetal development the brain development does depend on some glucose we have to remember that even though we are convincing our bodies to utilize fats for fuel that our bodies are utilizing glucose as a primary source right now just through the phases of evolution anyway like right now at this particular point in time we predominantly use glucose does that change I mean does 300 years ago were we consuming as much refined sugar where we more glucose dominant no we were probably used to running on fats but right now we need to know how to utilize carbs for fuel at least somewhat so it’s important so my wife has made the decision that she’s out of ketosis while she’s pregnant and then she’s going to go back to ketosis when she’s breastfeeding so hopefully that answers that question you guys are so amazing a lot of questions coming in about BCAAs I think probably because of that ketosis BCAA video that I did so I’ll have to do a whole separate video on that so you say amber needs a lifestyle channel she totally does I keep telling her that so that’s a good idea I’ll get an honor about that I need to start getting her on some more videos if you guys want more well actually while I’m doing this real quick bill Lawrence says TMI I don’t know if you’re talking TMI about my my wife being pregnant but sorry if it’s TMI it’s TMI but it’s my life and I’m sharing it with you guys if you guys have ideas for videos really quick please just post them while I’m here because I can see them a lot of people are saying they want to see me start doing vlogs and stuff I’m cool with doing that I might start doing that here pretty soon but I only want to make sure that I’m getting the education out that I want to get out and once the subscriber base is really big really really huge maybe it’s 500 thousand or so that’s when I feel comfortable saying all right I’m going to do some more blogs and blogs and I’m going to start getting out there and and doing this kind of stuff showing you what I eat in a day showing you that kind of stuff that makes sense you know so give me some ideas okay so more videos for women hormones and stuff like that it’s a great idea for minted proteins bone broth I’m trying to get some ideas in terms of videos here so guys what do you want to see I’ve got some cool ones coming up just so you know I’ve got one on Garcinia because dr. oz did a piece on Garcinia that I thought was really interesting how to pick canes it’s a good one the the dawn phenomena that’s pretty interesting and high glucose in the morning I’ve actually found that that’s really intriguing I don’t know I want to do a full video on that but I do need to talk about that at some point cheeto ice cream a lot of people talking about that video on inulin so I’m eating like the prebiotic fiber totally adaptogens great idea sorry some of those dr. axe is better than this all right I’m sorry that literally literally made me laugh out loud so thank you well good thing that dr. axe is a friend of mine so that’s cool so I’m literally cracking up because of all these comments that are coming and you guys are hilarious CLA that’s a great idea substitute for breads that’s a super super good one yeah thank you guys thank you guys it is awesome that Amber’s pregnant so I’m super happy there yeah it sounds like this all I got is commenting as having some serious issues and dr. axe is a super good guy you notice a lot of the content that I do parallels what he does we talked about a lot of the same things so leaky gut great idea to physiology of the addiction to bread and sugar that’s really good I did a video on the addictiveness of sugar actually already it’s on my channel if you scroll back a couple months it’s really really good it’s got some awesome stuff on there I don’t know if you know this but sugar gram for gram is more addictive than many street drugs gram for gram okay not not literally but gram for gram in terms of how it affects the body it’s more addictive than many street drugs same thing with Dairy Dairy that a1 beta casein it that BC m7 is actually more addictive than heroin gram for gram it’s like 2 to 3 times more addictive than heroin gram for gram very addictive stuff that’s why people when they consume dairy when they consume cheese and stuff like that they feel like they need more they get literally hooked on it it’s a big thing Marko’s carbs at night are good if you’re not in ketosis guys one last round I know I keep saying this I do have to jump off I’ve got to hop on a couple phone calls here I’ve got to end up finishing up some stuff I’ve got to edit a couple videos with my team so I’ve got to talk with one of my other editors that’s home working on something right now that
