 65 Dairy, It STILL Does a Body Good


Dr. Greg Miller is the Chief Science Officer for the National Dairy Council. I wanted to interview him because I had several questions about the health benefits of dairy, such as: Should you drink raw milk, is milk helpful for weight loss, is milk good for athletes, should a person drink whole or non-fat milk, and what about yogurt and cheese?

These questions, and more, were answered in this 30 minute interview. He is, as you can imagine, in favor of dairy products, but he gives scientific reasons why the various forms of dairy products are a low cost, high nutrition food, that most people find appealing.

63 A Woman's Side of Weightlifting [w/ Bridget Raach]

In this episode, "B-Rock" tells us the importance of weight training, or working against resistance, in general and especially for women. The 2 pound dumbell curls in front of the mirror are useless. Women need to lift weight, or work against resistance, as much as men do. They need to work against a resistance that is harder than they are used to. And, they need to sweat.

Bridget Raach will talk about Crossfit, and what she thinks of it as a sport, Olympic weightlifting and her recent experience with the  ICECP.

52 GABA Deficiency [insomnia, anxiety, weight gain]

In this episode, clinical, holistic nutritionist, Beverly Meyer explains the importance of having a proper level of the neurotransmitter gamma aminobuyteric acid (GABA). She explains that this important, but little known, neurotransmitter balances out our fight or flight system to allow us to calm down, relax, rest and recover. A lack of which will cause sleep problems, anxiety, weight gain (or the failure to lose weight), and several other problems that you may not be relating to stress. GABA balances out stress.

Listen as Beverly tells us how to spot the signs, symptoms and what to do about it.
