Creativity has the capacity to surprise you. If you're washing dishes the same old way for the 365th time this year, there's not much learning going on there but if you shift your attention - let's say you're in a zen monastery and there washing has a different significance; it's about being present with each dish and with the task at hand. Even if washing dishes doesn't seem like a meditative experience, it is in that context. - Gay Hendricks     : A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well....

  • Other common sources of brain fog including immunogenic foods such as eggs for Robb in his case.

  • Everyday food products to help you keep your sodium levels normal if you feel a dip in energy and brain fog including chicken bouillon cubes, pickle juice, and olives.
  • Why we tend to be scared of sodium because we so often associate it with processed foods.

  • Why there really is no beneficial difference in the source of sodium you consume whether that is sea salt or refined table salt.
  • Why iodine was first introduced to foods like salt because in the early 1900s people suffered goiters due to living more interior and not consuming fish as often.

Power Quotes From The Show

 

The Dangers Of Low Electrolyte Levels

 

"Somewhere along the line hydration became synonymous with water but it is not. If you look in a textbook of medical physiology, hydration is water and electrolytes in specific ratios. If you just add water you end up in a hyponatremic state; a low sodium state and this explains things like hand swelling. Most people are familiar with experiencing their hands swelling up when they go hiking and they drink lots of water, they're sweating like crazy, and they're swelling up because virtually nobody supplements with sodium...

...When our sodium levels are low, we will tend to get edema and this is when our hands, feet, and brain will also swell. This is what kills people when they over hydrate with only water like in hazing events or while training for and running in marathons. The next time you go hiking, drink pickle juice or LMNT, and notice how you don't swell." - Robb Wolf

 

Why Sodium Is So Important When You Sweat

 

"When we sweat, we mainly excrete sodium. We don't really excrete potassium or magnesium; there's a little bit but it's orders of magnitude different. So, in that high sweat scenario: a sauna, exercise, ruck marching; stuff like that - you need to mainly focus on sodium. Over the course of a month yes we need sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphates, bicarbonates - all of the electrolytes but in that time course of a hard, physical event or sauna, the main problem is the rapid and significant loss of sodium. So, that is another reason why you really have to target that." - Robb Wolf

 

Achieving Stable Sodium Levels Pre, Peri, and Post Workout

 
 

"Adequate post training or post stress sodium dramatically enhances recovery and there are a ton of mechanisms for why but one of the things that adequate sodium levels effect is cortisol release because it's less of a stress. If the body is getting adequate sodium, it's signalling the body that it's okay and it has enough nutrient resources to be able to recover. So pre workout sodium intake is really important depending on the duration of the event and then on the recovery side we also need adequate sodium and electrolytes....

...During the workout, sipping a drink like LMNT that will keep you well hydrated. When I was trying to do training like this ten plus years ago I would just be absolutely crushed after a workout and I think it was because I wasn't properly addressing my electrolyte levels like I am today. This pre, peri, and then post supplementation is really important to be on point if you want to optimize the whole workout experience." - Robb Wolf
