I LOVE episodes like the one I’ve got in store for you today. Why? Because I get to send flaming arrows into the conventional wisdom that’s keeping you stressed, sick and broke from all the wasted money you’ve likely spent on ineffective “cures”. Today I’m going to share with you the truth about that bad, bad, hormone – the “C-word”– cortisol ….

By the end of this episode, you’ll see why cortisol is actually one of your best allies for staying healthy and fit. But just like anything in excess, too much of it is where problems arise. Let’s dive in ...

Today, we’ll discuss:

- Why people have it all wrong when it comes to cortisol and stress. Here’s what’s actually going on, and why cortisol blockers are a baaaaaaddd idea … (1:39)


- The two different types of stress, and why one is really good, even though it, too, produces cortisol (1:55)


- Understanding “The Fishing Effect” so you can harness your natural cortisol production cycle to manage your insulin levels and, thus, stay focused, lose weight faster and sleep better (I don’t know of any health professional that has made this connection yet) (3:36)


- Do you struggle to wake up in the morning, and can’t get to sleep at night? You could have cortisol flip. Don’t ask your doctor. He likely doesn’t know jack about this. Here’s how to fix it … (4:08)


- A friendly suggestion for how to actively manage your excess stress to avoid excess cortisol (7:30)


- Get a dog. Seriously. Here’s why … (8:58)

A bit about the zebra ...

Not much is more stressful in the moment than getting chased by a massive lion that wants to tear your flesh and snap your bones. If zebras lived under that type of stress around the clock, they’d be the world’s fattest animal. But after a frenzied run, they rest and recover. They don’t live in constant stress. You’re not going to tell me that you ain’t as smart as a zebra, are you?

That’s what I thought. I hope you’ll take the lesson from today’s show and actively apply it to begin reducing excess cortisol and make it’s natural production your strong ally.

If you’re the person who has tried absolutely every diet under the sun, you work out for hours at the gym, but you still can’t drop the weight, this episode is taylor-made for you. While I’m not totally letting you off the hook, know that it’s not entirely your fault–you’ve likely been told all of the wrong ways to go about achieving a healthy body and a healthy weight.

After listening to today’s show, you’ll be further along that 90% of the population as you’ll learn that it’s all interconnected. And we’ll cover some protocols you need to know to get your systems working together. Let’s go!

Today, we’ll discuss:

MINDSET:
- How to measure your daily progress toward your holistic goals using the F5 System (1:28)
- Are you trying to speed up your life or slow things down? How to think about everything you’ve been taught as opposite to find what really matters … (2:13)
- What is underlying in every major religion and how understanding this can improve your relationships and effectiveness (2:44)
SUPPLEMENTS::
- Common sense natural supplements you need to take for fat loss, how much to take and how often … (3:47)
- Eat more–protein–to lose fat. But if you use whey protein know this in order to make it work (5:38)
- Forget about all of this if you’re not getting enough sleep, but for that daily boost, here’s what you need to supplement with to increase your energy (8:52)
- You know how important sleep is–it’s the best diet in the world! Here’s how to get the kind of natural deep sleep that turns your body into the epitome of health (10:38)

More protocols to come ...

Today we covered three of the protocols (Sleep, Energy and Fat Loss), and the supplements for them, that add up to building the healthy and functional body of your dreams. But we’ve only covered half of them.

Next time we’ll get into the remaining protocols and afterward you’ll be set with an encyclopedia-level of knowledge for how to give your body and health the care it needs. Be sure to catch it!

You might be a little confused by today’s title. Especially if you listened to last week’s episode when I told you that the brilliance of the brain and the body is that everything it does is to promote survival first. Yet here I am telling you to stop being a stressed out, survival oriented, human. What gives?

It’s true, your body’s first priority is to survive. And you learned last time that your hormones are the tools that control your body functions and composition for best protection. But stressing out these hormones can have muy malo consequences. That’s why you need to understand what I share with you in this episode.

Today, we’ll discuss:

MINDSET:

  • Why it takes at least 10 years to become an overnight success (2:01)
  • Ho imagining you’re pushing a flywheel and thinking about moment can help you better understand the “10,000 hour” success principle (4:13)

HORMONES AND NERVOUS SYSTEMS:

  • This internal environment is controlling your body composition. You must change this aspect if you want to change your composition (5:37)
  • The two sides of your autonomic nervous system and how to tap into each to both relax and ramp up when necessary, thus finding better hormonal balance (6:18)
  • Which nervous system you need to activate more often to shed fat and activate natural anabolic growth (9:52)
  • The specifics of what stress actually does to release this hormone that packs on the fat like a snowman packs snow (12:33)

You can’t thrive in survival mode …

While it’s undoubtedly a crucial function, operating at such high stress and in your sympathetic nervous system all the time is not how you want to live if you at all care about your looks and long-term health. You must prioritize your rest. If you get nothing else from this episode, take the golden nugget I gave you about your sleep cycles to heart, and you’ll see noticeable changes in no time.

Thanks again for tuning in. If you enjoyed the show, please help me out by leaving a review on iTunes. And don’t forget to follow me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

I’ll be back again next week with more useful stuff to know, but until then …  you’re stronger than you know!

Peace,
