LCKL 067 – Biohacks 101 Series – Fasting – How Fasting Impacts Fat Loss…

One of the greatest benefits associated with fasting is that of fat loss. If you are wanting to learn the ins and outs of how fasting will actually help you lose weight, then this episode is for you.

SHOWNOTES

This episode covers 4 top reasons why fasting can help with fat loss.

TRANSCRIPT
Reason #1 - Increases Human Growth HormoneReason #2 - Increases LipolysisReason #3 - Increases CatecholaminesReason #4 - Increases Ketosis Related Fat BurningOther Reasons
  • Studies have shown that fasting can increase the level of human growth hormone secretion substantially.

Relevant Studies

  • Study #1 – Kerndt et al published a study in 1982 showing that after a patient underwent a 40 day fast, not only did his glucose and insulin go way down, but his human growth hormone went from 0.73 to 9.86 which is a massive 1250% increase. This study showed that a shorter 5 day fast gives a 300% increase. That is still a remarkable increase.
  • Study #2 – Hartman et al showed that there was a 500% increase in Human Growth Hormone in only a 2 day fast.
  • Other studies have shown that people were able to increase their growth hormone by 1300% in Women and 2000% in Men in only 24 hours.

Benefits of HGH in Relation to Weight Loss

  • Promotes more muscle growth. More Muscle, more fat loss.
  • Increases Energy Production.
  • Improves Quality of the Heart and the Kidneys.
  • Builds Stronger Bones.
  • Increases Breakdown of Stored Fats.
  • Increases Use of Fats for Energy.
  • Counteracts the Action of Insulin. I.e Moves sugar out of the cells.

But Won’t Fasting Inhibit Athletic Performance and Stop Me Exercising?

  • Actually, no it will not.
  • An increase in noradrenalin during fasting will give you more energy to train harder.
  • Elevated HGH increases muscle mass and makes workout recovery easier.
  • Fasting does not burn muscle and actually may help build it faster.Studies have shown that fasting can increase the level of human growth hormone secretion substantially.
  • Releases Stored Triglycerides from body fat so it can be stored for energy.
  • Most tissues in the body are able to use fatty acids for fuel. The only parts of the body that now require glucose is the brain and the red blood cells.
  • To do this, the triglycerides will be broken down into glycerol and 3 fatty acids. The glycerol portion will be sent to the liver where it will be turned into glucose by gluconeogenesis. This very small amount of glucose will be used to fuel the parts of the brain that require it, the red blood cells and the renal medulla.
  • When insulin is high, the process of lipolysis is low and fat burning is almost impossible.
  • Also known as Adrenaline and Noradrenaline.
  • When released from the brain it directly switches on fat cells, cranking the fat breakdown at an amplified rate.
  • It is also important for maintaining energy levels whilst fasting. In fact a study by Zauner C et al showed that four days of fasting skyrockets your norepinephrine to 117% of what it was.
  • On top of this noradrenaline has been shown to decrease appetite.
  • Two ways that you can increase your norepinephrine is through fasting and through HIIT workouts.
  • Helps shift from sugar burning to fat burning.
  • In a study published by Zauner C et al they showed that over a 4 day fast they increased the production of beta hydroxy butyrate from 182.7 umol/L to a whopping 4781.6 umol/L which is a whopping 2527% difference.
  • By end of 24 hours you have burnt more fat than a day of eating.
  • The more days you fast the more keto adapted you are and the more fat you will burn.

Within the course, there are 2 more reasons why fasting can help with Weight Loss, including its impact on insulin sensitivity and also its impact on hormone sensitive lipase. Remember that as I find more information that I think could benefit the course I will add it most likely in the resources part of that lecture so make sure you keep an eye on it. The good news is too that once you have purchased the course you get it for a lifetime – even all the updates.

Now If you are wanting to get the shownotes to this episode or to any of the episodes in the Biohacks – Fasting segment they are available within the course. I put a lot of time and effort into producing this Water Fasting course so I can’t possibly give away all of the information for free.

LCKL 059 – Copper – The Secret Anti-Ageing, Fat Loss Nutrient

Although Copper is something we think is bad for us, it is actually a trace mineral that is required for many different reasons, one of which is because it is involved in so many enzymatic actions that our body would not function without it. It is one mineral that should not necessarily be supplemented but which should come from our diet. Check out the episode to see the details.

SHOWNOTES

TRANSCRIPT
What is Copper?Deficiency SymptomsCauses of DeficiencyPopulations Most Likely To Be DeficientKetogenic Sources of CopperBenefitsDosagesSide Effects and Precautions
  • Copper is an essential trace mineral that is absolutely necessary for survival.
  • The majority of the copper in the body is found in the liver, brain, heart, kidneys and skeletal muscle.
  • Being a trace mineral only very small amounts are required and although small amounts are beneficial, large amounts are detrimental.
  • Low Body Temperature;
  • Brittle Bones;
  • Dilated Veins;
  • Low White Blood Cell Count;
  • Uneven Heartbeat;
  • Low Resistance to Infections;
  • Birth Defects;
  • Low Pigmentation;
  • Thyroid Disorders;
  • Stunted Growth;
  • Lethargy;
  • Paleness;
  • Bleeding under the skin.
  • Copper Deficiency is relatively rare but can occur in a number of situations.
  • When over 50mg/day of supplemental zinc is taken for extended periods of time.
  • Very high levels of Vitamin C supplementation over an extended period of time.
  • Infants drinking cows milk as opposed to formula, especially premature infants, infants with prolonged diarrhea, infants and children recovering from malnutrition.
  • Individuals with malabsorption syndromes, such as celiac disease, sprue, short bowel syndrome.
  • Cystic Fibrosis patients may be at an increased risk also.
  • Leafy Green Vegetables;
  • Mushrooms;
  • Oysters;
  • Nuts;
  • Seeds;
  • Liver; and
  • Seafood.

Arthritis

  • It has anti-inflammatory effects on the body and it assists in reducing the symptoms of arthritis.

Growth

  • Copper is essential for normal growth and health.
  • It is helpful in the protection of the skeletal, nervous and cardiovascular system.
  • With a copper deficiency, the normal growth of organs and tissues, as well as proper oxygenation from ample red blood cells would be impossible.

Pigmentation of Hair and Eyes

  • Copper is a vital component of melanin, which will impart coloration of skin, hair and eyes.
  • Tyrosinase is an enzyme that is derived from copper and it is required for the melanocytes to produce melanin.
  • It also helps to maintain the coloration of your eyes and keep them beautiful.

Connective Tissues

  • Plays a significant role in the synthesis of haemoglobin, myelin, melanin and collagen.
  • It helps to protect the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerves.
  • Involved in the production of elastin which helps keep the skin flexible.

Brain Stimulation

  • Copper is absolutely essential for optimal cognitive function, as well as neurodevelopment and growth.
  • However, too much copper in the brain can do the complete opposite and lead to neural degeneration.

Enzymatic Action

  • Copper is an essential cofactor for many different enzymatic actions in the body and therefore without it our function would not function properly.

Improves Skin and Hair Health

  • Dermatologists say that copper is awesome as a skin care treatment due to the fact that it helps to fight wrinkles and treat scars.
  • It has also been found to help with hair loss due to it being a cofactor for healthy skin and hair follicle health.

Increases Energy

  • Copper is essential for the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the energy system throughout the body.

Inhibition of Bacteria

  • Studies have actually shown that copper may destroy or inhibit the growth of bacterial strains like E-Coli, as well as boost the immune system to fight off the bacteria.

Thyroid Health

  • Copper is one nutrient that is important for healthy thyroid function.
  • It will stimulate the thyroid whilst also protecting the body against too much thyroxine in the blood.
  • If you are taking zinc supplementation for hypothyroidism be aware that excess zinc supplements depletes your body of copper, leading to a copper deficiency.

Production of Red Blood Cells

  • 4 Copper Containing enzymes known as multi copper oxidases have the capacity to oxidise ferrous iron to ferric iron.
  • Ferric iron can be loaded onto the protein transferrin for transport to the site of red blood cell formation.
  • Anemia is a clinical sign of copper deficiency and as iron has been found to accumulate in the livers of copper dependent animals this may indicate that copper is required for iron transport to the bone marrow for red blood cell formation.

Immune Health

  • Because of the important role neutrophils play in the immune system to fight off infection and because a deficiency in copper can lead to neutropenia (deficiency in white blood cells) it is important to make sure that your copper levels are adequate.

Lowers Cholesterol Levels

  • Studies have shown that copper can actually reduce LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol, therefore reducing your risk of it later on in life.

Increases Fat Burning and Weight Loss

  • One surprising benefit of copper is that of stimulating fat burning.
  • Studies have found that copper basically keeps your body in fat burning mode while you are at rest. They believe that copper actually blocks the “off switch” for fat burning.
  • A study was done at the University of California which took a group of mice with Wilsons Disease (genetic condition causing accumulation of copper in the liver). They found that the mice with the extra copper in their livers had lower than normal fat levels compared to the control group. The mice with the lowest amount of copper in their fatty tissues had more fatty deposits.

The RDA for copper is 900 mcg for both adolescents and adults. Supplementation is not considered necessary as you can get the majority of what you need from your nutrition.

  • The balance of zinc and copper is incredibly important. For instance, some studies have shown that the right amount of copper can stop tumor growth but too much copper can increase the growth.
  • Copper is very slow to metabolize so you can build an overabundance of it if you are not careful.
  • Safe levels of copper are between 1.5 and 3 mg per day for adults and no more than 2.5 mg for children.
  • If you accidentally take too much copper you may experience the following symptoms:
    • Palpitations;
    • Stomach Disorders;
    • Low Fertility; and
    • Sexual Dysfunction.

If you take way too much then you may deal with damage to the kidneys, liver, reproductive organs and brain.

LCKL 055 – The Power of Alpha Lipoic Acid to Modulate Blood Sugar Levels and Increase Fat Loss

Are you dealing with Type 2 Diabetes or Severe Insulin Resistance? Are you curious about how antioxidants work? If so, then Alpha Lipoic Acid may be just what you are looking for. This amazing supplement is not only a fantastic antioxidant, but it also works to Lower Blood Sugars, Improve Type 2 Diabetes, Improve Cardiovascular Health, Improve Eye Health, Improve Nervous System and the Brain, as well as help with Fat Loss…

SHOWNOTES
  • What is Alpha Lipoic Acid and why do we require more of it as we get older?
  • What are Antioxidants?
  • What is Oxidation?
  • How do different antioxidants differ?
  • How does Alpha Lipoic Acid work as an antioxidant?
  • How does Alpha Lipoic Acid work to Lower Blood Sugars and Improve Type 2 Diabetes?
  • How does Alpha Lipoic Acid help with Cardiovascular Issues?
  • How does Alpha Lipoic Acid help with the Eyes?
  • How does Alpha Lipoic Acid help with the Nervous System and the Brain?
  • How does Alpha Lipoic Acid help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
  • How does Alpha Lipoic Acid help with Fat Loss?
  • What food sources are rich in Alpha Lipoic Acid?
  • What dosages of Alpha Lipoic Acid Should I have Per Day?
  • What are the Side Effects of taking Alpha Lipoic Acid regularly?
  • What precautions should I take when taking Alpha Lipoic Acid?
TRANSCRIPT
What is Alpha Lipoic AcidWhat are AntioxidantsBenefitsSourcesDosagesSide Effects
  • ALA or Alpha Lipoic Acid is a natural compound that is made in the body.
  • It is incredibly important and serves many vital functions at the cellular level, such as energy production.
  • As we age, the amount of ALA that we produce naturally decreases and therefore can induce greater free radical damage.
  • Before we go into the benefits of this supplement let me first explain what oxidation is and what antioxidants can do for you.
  • Oxidants are free radicals that you may find in the environment and they are also produced within your body under stressful situations or in the presence of pollution, cigarettes or alcohol.
  • Your body will create oxidant to help fend off microbes and viruses. However, if you have too many of them, they can cause serious damage and even contribute to certain cancers as well as heart disease.
  • So, does that means you should have unlimited amounts of supplemental antioxidants? The answer is a resounding no. If you take too many antioxidants in supplemental form then you turn off your bodies own production of antioxidants like glutathione. This means that when you stop taking the supplements you will not be able to produce the internal antioxidants like you should.
  • It is very important that you just make sure you consume a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables, spices, herbs and grass fed / pasture raised animals and you will possibly get the majority of the antioxidants you need and then you can just possibly add in 1 or 2 other sources.
  • What’s interesting is because of the different structures of different antioxidants they tend to provide benefits to different parts of the body:
    • Beta Carotene – Beneficial to eye health;
    • Lycopene – Beneficial for prostate health;
    • Flavonoids – Beneficial for heart health;
    • Proanthocyanidins – Beneficial for urinary tract health; and
    • Astaxanthin – Possibly the most potent antioxidant out there which is why I wrote a book on it entitled Healing with Astaxanthin, which is available both on my website and via Amazon.
      • It is particularly beneficial for protecting the skin against skin cancers.
      • Both Astaxanthin and Spirulina has been found to enhance both non specific and specific immune system and protect cell membranes and cellular DNA from mutation.

It is a Potent Antioxidant

  • It is an antioxidant that protects against damage to the body’s cells.
  • One of the main dangers of Diabetes is oxidative stress and the production of free radicals. The higher your blood glucose levels, the higher the amount of oxidative stress.
  • It is a very special antioxidant because it can act in both water and fat soluble domains in the cells and tissues. Therefore, it is easily absorbed and transported into many organs and systems throughout the body, such as the brain, liver and nerves.
  • This differs from other antioxidants such as:
    • Vitamin C – Only water soluble, therefore is not able to penetrate the lipid wall of the cell membranes very easily.
    • Vitamin E – Only fat soluble so you require sufficient amount of fats in your diet to be able to use properly.
  • Lipoic acid is so great that it even helps to regenerate vitamins C and E. It also helps to amplify the positive effects of other antioxidants such as glutathione and Coenzyme Q10.
  • On top of this, it teams up with the B Vitamins to support energy production in the body by converting the components of food into stored energy for future use. It helps to protect the mitochondria from being damaged and therefore makes energy production much more efficient.

Lowers Blood Sugar Levels and Improves Diabetes

  • Studies have shown that ALA may help reduce symptoms of peripheral neuropathy/nerve damage caused by diabetes. Although research has been done on use of intravenous ALA for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy, not as much research has been done on oral use.
  • It has also been shown to enhance the body’s ability to use its own insulin to lower blood sugar in people with T2D.
  • Lipoic Acid is so good that it has been found to work at improving Diabetes in only 4 weeks of supplementation.
  • Early studies have also shown that just 5 weeks of lipoic acid supplementation of 600-1800mg daily significantly improves stabbing pain, burning pain and numbness of the feet.

Improves Cardiovascular Health

  • Studies have shown that Lipoic Acid alongside Acetyl L Carnitine is incredibly beneficial for the cardiovascular system, especially Coronary Artery Disease.
  • It has been shown to be effective for reducing blood pressure

Improves Eye Health

  • Lipoic Acid has been found to help with cataracts due to its ability to protect against oxidative stress in the eye.
  • Studies have also shown it to be beneficial for protecting against glaucoma. This study had patients take either 75mg of lipoic acid daily for 2 months or 150mg of lipoic acid daily for 1 month.
  • Finally, research has shown it to be effective at protecting against retinitis pigmentosa which is quite a serious eye disease that can lead to serious vision loss. At present there is no medical treatment for that so the fact that it can be helped naturally is awesome.

Improves Nervous System

  • Lipoic Acid is an amazing nutrient, as I said before, because it can pass readily into the brain and reach all parts of the nerve cell.
  • Studies have shown that it may be effective for reducing brain damage after a stroke and that although it was an animal study, they lasted for 3 times as long as those that didn’t take the lipoic acid.
  • Lipoic Acid may also protect against AD by increasing the production of acetylcholine in the brain, which is often deficient in Alzheimers patients.
  • Headaches and Migraines may also be a thing of the past if you are taking Alpha Lipoic Acid supplements. Studies have shown that taking 600mg of ALA per day for 3 months results in decreased intensity and frequency of migraines.

Reduces Pain from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • A study in the Journal of Hand Surgery by Boriani F et al found that postoperative administration of ALA after median nerve decompression may result in a lower incidence of pillar pain from carpal tunnel syndrome.

Improves Fat Loss

  • If you are looking at reducing body fat then Alpha Lipoic Acid may be something you would be interested in.
  • A very recent study that was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology took 103 subjects and were randomised to receive either placebo or ALA (1200mg/day) for a period of 8 weeks. They tested them for body weight, changes in waist circumference, BMI, Lipid Profile and Plasma Leptin Levels.
  • Although no significant differences were noted in cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, HDL levels there was some mild weight loss accompanied by a reduction in waist circumference.
  • Dark, Green Leafy Vegetables.
  • Beef.
  • Organ Meats.
  • Studies have shown dosages ranging from 300 to 1800mg per day.
  • It is a good idea to also supplement with Biotin and B Complex for optimal benefits.
  • Very rare and mild, such as skin rash.
  • Ensure you see a practitioner if you take insulin or other medications to lower blood sugars. Supplementation can enhance the effects of the drugs, leading to hypoglycaemia.
  • Studies have not been done on pregnant women or nursing mothers and therefore definitely consult a practitioner first.

LCKL 027 – Dangers of Dehydration and the Importance of Water

Are you drinking sufficient water? Are you chronically dehydrated? If you are suffering from dry skin, headaches or excessive weight gain then it is likely you may be dehydrated… You need to remember that we lose a lot of water through perspiration, urination, respiration and other bodily processes and therefore if we don’t replace this water we can experience a lot of serious side effects.

In this episode you will discover:

RESEARCH

Study #1

In this study they placed a group of inactive and abdominally obese men together and instructed them to perform 3 bouts of aerobic treadmill exercise at low or high intensity for a period of a week. They found that adiponectin levels were elevated following both low and high intensity exercise and remained elevated even after resting for 30 minutes. What’s even better is they found that it remained elevated for 2-3 days after performing the final exercise session.

Study #2

In this study they placed 26 overweight males on an exercise program consisting of aerobic exercise 4-5 days per week for 40 minutes per session over a period of 10 weeks. They found that adiponectin levels rose by 260% after 2-3 bouts of exercise.

Study #3

In this study they set out to evaluate the effect of resistance training on adiponectin and insulin resistance in overweight girls. Twenty girls were instructed to carry out circuit resistance training for 12 weeks, at 3 sessions per week. They found that this training caused a significant increase in adiponectin levels and a concurrent decrease in insulin resistance.

RESEARCH

Low dose growth hormone treatment with diet restriction accelerates body fat loss, exerts anabolic effect and improves growth hormone secretory dysfunction in obese adults”, Hormone Research, 1999.

  • In this study they set out to investigate the effects of growth hormone treatment and dietary restriction on lipolytic and anabolic actions, as well as the consequent changes in insulin and GH secretion in obesity.
  • This study was composed of 24 obese subjects who were fed a diet of 25 calories per kg of ideal body weight with 1.2g of protein per kg daily.
  • They were treated with either human growth hormone or placebo.
  • The trial went for 12 weeks and was randomized, double blind and placebo controlled.
  • Growth hormone treatment caused a 1.6 fold increase in the body weight lost as fat and a greater loss of visceral fat than placebo.
  • In the placebo group, the hypocaloric diet created a loss in lean body mass with a negative nitrogen balance, whereas the growth hormone group resulted in an increase in lean body mass with a positive nitrogen balance.
  • Growth hormone injections resulted in a 1.6 fold increase in IGF-1, even though they were hypocaloric.
  • Growth hormone treatment did not induce a further increase in insulin levels during an oral glucose tolerance test but it did significantly decrease free fatty acid levels.
  • This study concluded that in obese subjects given a hypocaloric diet, growth hormone accelerates fat loss, exerts anabolic effects and improves growth hormone secretion.
