03:15 Protein, just as a refresher, again contains four calories per gram, so if you 10 grams of protein, you get roughly 40 calories from it and proteins are made up of amino acids, of which there’s essential, nonessential and what we call semi essential, essential amino acids. You have to get in your diet, a nonessential amino acids your body can make from other amino acids. And then similarly essential amino acids, probably the most well known ones called Glutamine. Glutamine is a primary, amino acid in the muscles. And if you’re a weight lifter, heavy exerciser construction worker, heavy worker of some sort, then Glutamine becomes semi-essential because you burned it all up. Your livers very quick to tell your biceps to give up its Glutamine so it can turn it into sugar to feed your brain.
10:33 Kidney damage. Poor bone health, increased cancer risk and heart disease. Those are the big four protein arguers
16:05 my recommendation is all one to one point two gram per pound. Because you’re not in kidney failure. So the RDA recommended dietary allowances for protein is .8g per kilo. So it’s a very small amount compared to what we usually suggest in the world of fitness, weight loss, recovery, etc.
19:22 general recommendation is you want to drink constantly while exercising. And then while you’re up and awake, try to take a good swig of water every 15 minutes and it seems following osmolality studies in your urine, which we do hear that that is an adequate amount. You’re not dehydrated, you’re not over hydrated. And really that’s all your body needs. Now, some people like to drink more drinking cold water, loge changes your appetite. Some people feel better when they drink more water. So again, that’s back to that individualization of health. Do what’s best for you, but at the very least, I suggest that drink of water every 15 minutes while awake. The simplest way to do it.
28:59 I take a pen and I put it on my forearm and run it up my forearm into my mouth and then pretend I’ve never lift the pen as I go through that whole tube called the gut until I come out the other side. And that’s just to emphasize that that tube is outside your body and because of that, your immune system, 80 percent of your immune system and lymphatic tissue surrounds that too.
31:20 Your body, if your gut is functioning well, these sugars, fats, and amino acids are being absorbed and your immune system leaves them alone. They say, “oh yeah, that’s supposed to be here. That’s feeding me.” When the gut gets broken down, and again, I’ve said this and I’ll say it again, the number one reason for gut breakdown is high cortisol levels, so stress. Then your entire tube doesn’t work as well because the salivary enzymes, the pancreatic enzymes, the bile, the way the stomach churns, or let’s say you’re taking a bunch of antacids because you have reflect. So now you don’t break down protein at all, so larger than amino acid proteins called Peptides. So you have amino acids and Peptides, that whole Proteins, these Peptides that aren’t broken down into their individual amino acid constituents slip across that leaky gut into the immune system and the immune system sees it and goes, “wait a minute, I don’t recognize that protein that is a foreigner” and it, because it’s not been trained in Thymus bootcamp that that is okay, it attacks it. Well, just like any good military, if you have an enemy, you don’t just attack, you build up a full army to attack it.
37:32 If you take the same probiotic more than a month, it will start taking over your system and you’re not better anymore.
47:30 fasting is so good for your body. It resets so many things. It improves insulin sensitivity is start in all tissues. The 16 hour marks kind of questioned some, most people’s authority say five or six hours, and your insulin sensitivity is increased in your liver and your muscles.
51:40 No matter what the blood sugar will do, if you’re not eating will stimulate the sympathetic nervous system to fire your body goes into holy shit mode and you have a rapid heart rate. You’re anxious, you’re sweating, you’re nauseous, your dizzy because your body’s telling you to eat. The problem with that is it’s very hard to distinguish, is it truly low blood sugar or is it a Sympathomimetic response from elevated insulin? That being said, if it is the former, if it is true Hypoglycemia, intermittent fasting is probably not a good idea because your blood sugar will drop too low and you will not feel good. If it’s the other, if it’s more of a sympathy, my medic or sympathetic nervous system response to higher insulin levels, then the treatments on the insulin levels using cinnamon, using berberine, using a few supplements like that are using branched chain amino acids in powder form and drinking them throughout your fast, rather than eating, we’ll all keep insulin at bay and you won’t have those symptoms.
57:49 The different types of quito runs, the intermittent fasting or DET dieting, the isonutrients, whatnot, to help you figure out where you, one, function best. Two, maintain fat loss or fat percentage to best. Three, maintain your lean mass the best. Four, your quality of life’s good. Use those dieting techniques to figure out what you need to do the rest of your life.
Well, I hope you got some great information from that podcast on protein and gut health. Go to my website, drwilley.com. If you have any questions, want to email me. If you’re interested in setting up a similar webinar type, we do the zoom platform, setting up your webinar with your friends, families, colleagues, whatnot, or we just sit and talk. I’ll take any question you can throw at me in the health, fitness, exercise, nutrition, autoimmune disease, preventative medicine. You name it. I love it. Bring it on. We can have a great time. If you’re interested, go to my website, shoot me an email and I’ll have some information sent to you.
