Paleo Magazine Radio

Living a full, healthy, happy, and long life might be simpler than we think. Merely thinking positively and having an upbeat attitude has huge benefits for health and longevity. Many of us tend to jump straight to the next hyped diet though, forgetting the positive consequences simple pillars like mindset, great sleep, regular exercise, and the avoidance of junk food can have on us. In this episode, we get a chance to listen to the brilliant thinking of Brad Kearns, one of the OGs of the Ancestral Health Movement. He has written books such as The Keto Reset Diet and Keto for...

As gut health grows in the popular imagination, there is a greater and greater need for clear understanding and transparency.

Caroline Beckman, the founder of Nouri, joins us today to talk about her company, what they are doing in the probiotic space and her commitment to helping customers through informative labeling and continued education. We hear from Caroline about her astounding...

Paleo Magazine Radio

Light and eye health are an often-neglected part of our overall wellness. While many of us focus on proper nutrition, exercise, and mental health, we rarely turn attention to the impact that light has on our well-being. This, despite the role that light plays in eye strain, seasonal depression, sleep disorders, sleep function, and sleep hygiene, among many conditions. Our guest today, Andy Mant, is here to shepherd us out of the darkness and into the (safe) light. His company, BLUblox, produces a range of light-blocking glasses. Their evidence-based, research-backed products and information...

PMR #298: How your eyes, breath, and mood impact your your posture, performance, and body mechanics, with Posturepro founder Annette Verpillot show art PMR #298: How your eyes, breath, and mood impact your your posture, performance, and body mechanics, with Posturepro founder Annette Verpillot

Paleo Magazine Radio

Our guest on the show today is Annette Verpillot, Canadian posturologist and founder of Posturepro. Annette is here to blow our minds about the causes of bad posture and give us some simple ways to address them. Posture has been defined as the maintenance of correct tension between flexors and extensors against the pull of gravity. Her perspective on how this balance is maintained looks a lot further than sitting upright though. According to Annette, the brain is actually the main cause of poor posture. It often finds itself processing a faulty sensory input and then responding by misdirecting...

Joining us on this week’s episode is Sabrina Wieser, German-born but New York-based marathon runner and coach who is known online as Running Brina.

On top of being a sub-four marathoner with a massive online following, Sabrina is also very serious about lifting. We are lucky to have her on the show today to talk about - you guessed it - all things...

Paleo Magazine Radio

The approaching holidays bring with them various temptations synonymous with this time of year. Rather than restricting yourself, we think you should indulge! Sensibly, of course. This is because the holidays are about so much more than being regimented about diet and exercise. They are about spending time with people you love. For many of us, it is easy to be disciplined or go off the rails completely, but this holiday season does not have to be either-or. Ashleigh reads Melissa Hartwig’s article, Eat, Drink and Be Merry, where she discusses the three reasons it is not a good idea to begin...

Joining us on this week’s episode is Sabrina Wieser, German-born but New York-based marathon runner and coach who is known online as Running Brina. Growing up in a small hometown meant that Sabrina had never considered running as an option before moving to The States. New York’s flourishing running culture captured her imagination though, and she ended up falling in love with the sport. On top of being a sub-four marathoner with a massive online following, Sabrina is also very serious about lifting.

We are lucky to have her on the show today to talk about - you guessed it - all things running and gymming! She lets us in on how she decided to take both sports so seriously in the first place, and you'll hear about all the dietary and workout logistics involved in making such an aim sustainable. Sabrina tells us about the marathons she has completed across the world, her training community in NYC, her ultra high carb diet, favorite running spots, and the city as a network of bridges, hills, and loops. We also spend a bit of time speaking about her quite unintentional trajectory into being a social media personality, her love of her day job, and why a social media-based career is not for her, even though it sometimes feels like a job anyway. Sabrina is an inspiration and her down to earth attitude about the value of sticking to a goal is infectious, so tune in for a great interview with an incredible human being.

“What I had to figure out was really, ‘Okay. When I’m running, let’s say, five times a week, when do I go to the gym and train legs?’” — @runningbrina [0:17:24.4]

“A runner doesn’t have to look a certain way. They come in all shapes and sizes, ages, and paces, and that’s really the place where I feel most comfortable.” — @runningbrina [0:22:20.1]

“I went to the Dominican Republic with some of my friends who were born there. They took us to Santo Domingo and we ran the Santo Domingo Half. That’s really what we did. We explored the city running. It was amazing.” — @runningbrina [0:54:05.1]
