hey guys today we’re going to be talking about seven steps or seven secrets to lose weight fast and Jordan weight loss just isn’t about looking good it’s about feeling good and transforming your health as well so we’re going to talk about the best essential oils herbs vitamins supplements foods and natural treatments that can help you lose weight fast I remember Jordan when I first got into fitness I went to University of Kentucky and started learning as a personal trainer then I ate this diet that every morning I would do egg whites and oatmeal for lunch I would do chicken breast and broccoli and brown rice and for an actual Eid like five mils a day and I was just always hungry and I was just miserable I got the plur I’m like I cannot keep up the diet thing anymore and so today we’re going to talk about eating real food and still losing weight it’s funny we’re learning things about each other on the air so I just realized that on the last program that we both had ADHD as children and now I realize that when I to was a personal trainer in college I went to Florida State University afraid to say that after this week’s bashing vomit at the hands of Louisville but uh so in addition I consumed a diet that was as high carb and low fat as possible because in the 90s the early 90s the fat-free craze was everywhere all I did was feel tired and weak all the time but I kept doing it because I was told this is the right thing to do so if you’ve ever been in a diet whether it’s vegan food combining macrobiotic whether it’s balancing just that or the other and it made you miserable and you got the opposite effect let us know about it alright here we go let’s jump into secret number one we’re going to unveil number one secret to lose weight and to lose it fast Jordan let’s talk about and most people probably have never heard of this what’s the water cure well the water cure has been applied for thousands of years in different iterations but what I’m talking about is the specific information on using water to lose weight and here’s the tip and it’s so simple and it’s so free it’s ridiculous so consume filtered water and every time you’re hungry every time you go to the fridge every time you go to the pantry drink eight ounces of water and people say well is it cold water is it warm water I know you’re very interested in sort of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine they will tell you room-temperature waters best but some people say colds but eight ounces of water whenever you’re hungry and I guarantee you if you remember you’re hungry you’ll eat less now the water cure has much more to it but the water cure for weight loss drink eight ounces of water every time you’re hungry and when you reach for the cupboard reach for the pantry I would even put Josh a sticky note on the fridge or the pantry that says drink eight ounces of water I guarantee you you will eat less food now Jordan talking about our old Fitness days you know what what I you what I remember I used to do and what a lot of people used to do is carry around you know a big gallon jug in the gym and drink all the you know I used to remember I would try and drink at least a gallon a day and I was have to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes drink so much water but there’s no doubt about it drinking more water helps keep you more full helps cleanse your system and can absolutely help you lose weight so what I’d recommend is taking your bodyweight and drinking at least half of that an ounces of water daily if not equal to so get a lot of water I love carrying around big stainless steel clean canteens or swell bottles drinking those throughout the day especially loading up on water between your meals so Jordan let’s jump into step number two here and herbs I’ll share a couple of my favorite herbs for weight loss and have Jordan take is and we actually didn’t even discuss the herb so I hope I don’t take yours but I probably well at least a couple so one of my favorite herbs for weight loss of course is going to be an herb called cinnamon you know cinnamon is great for something called GTF it’s glucose tolerance factor and listen this is big if you’re a person who part of the reason you can’t you can’t lose weight on a diet is because of cravings it’s like you’re always having these cravings all the time cinnamon is fantastic and what I do Jordan is I love adding you know a little bit of cinnamon typically of everything to everything but I do about a teaspoon in a smoothie for breakfast in fact I even made a Israeli dish this weekend yeah there you go I did actually some ground sirloin added a little bit of cinnamon there and did some parsley and onion in things it was fantastic so cinnamon great for your blood glucose levels and another one of my favorites is holy basil you know holy basil also known as Tulsi it’s known as an adaptogenic herb and one of the reasons why I believe it’s so beneficial for weight loss is because it also helps in balancing out cortisol levels when that hormone cortisol gets high it can also affect insulin and other hormones in the body causes emotional stress and not only does it help you lose weight Jordan it helps relieve stress help support organ function and there’s a lot of other herbs we can touch on here but I’ll hand it off to you and make you more I didn’t take mine just to be very clear the herbs that I’m going to mention to you function in two specific ways number one you want to trigger fat burning with thermogenic or hot hot peppers are the way to go jalapenos cayenne and various chili peppers are great so think hot peppers are not only high in vitamin C but they help to stimulate thermogenesis which means generation of heat so fat burning will be triggered by consuming hot peppers and Josh you talked about hormones a moment ago when it comes to weight loss a lot of hormones are involved insulin and glucagon so when you’re talking about insulin management cinnamon as Josh mentioned is amazing and if you consume one teaspoon of cinnamon a day you are in line with all the clinical research absolutely amazing you can also make a cinnamon tea or decoction or just eat the cinnamon chips they’re so so good if you get bulk cinnamon herbs though a lot of people think that stress is dessert spelled backwards well actually it is but folks think about it we eat when we’re upset we eat to celebrate everything somehow gets back to cookies and cream doesn’t it but ashwagandha in tea form supplement form and pretty much any form helps reduce cortisol which helps reduce belly fat helps you sleep better helps you look better ashwagandha is the quintessential anti or adaptogenic herb it is known as winter cherry and it’s one of the big three herbs in India joining turmeric and holy basil or Tulsi so what we talked about just a recap cinnamon we talked about which is wonderful for blood sugar and glucagon we talked about hot peppers we talked about ashwagandha and then you added another one in there holy basil so those four are awesome tea form powder is a spice supplement form those will help you begin to lose weight by generating internal heat and reducing cortisol as well as insulin is that right there we could stop the show and you’ll already be on track to lose weight yeah absolutely we’re going to jump into step 3 here in just one second but I want to mention this what Jordan mentioned with Austral ganda is so big because there’s a lot of people Jordan today who are trying to lose weight by doing a lot of different you know a lot of different supplements and pills sometimes even medications the reason why ash or gun is so effective is it really works with your hormones and your thyroid a lot of people today I do too hypothyroidism Hashimoto’s disease that’s part of the reason why they’re gaining weight and their medical clinical studies showing ashwagandha supports t3 levels t4 and especially TSH or thyroid stimulating hormone it is key to lose weight especially when if it’s caused by cortisol and different hormone levels here as well let’s jump into step number three essential oil number one we touched on the herb cinnamon essential oil contains a compound called cinnamaldehyde which has actually been shown in clinical trials to help balance blood sugar Jordan fact a recent study out of the Mayo Clinic did a study on cinnamaldehyde or cinnamon extract which is high in cinnamaldehyde and found that it was very effective in actually treating diabetics in fact it was one of the most effective treatments they had found for for diabetes I got to tell you when it comes to essential oils and herbs it’s hard to beat turmeric and cinnamon so yeah probably my number two favorite herb and the oils amazing I use it on my toothpaste every day I just put some cinnamon on it it’s absolutely great sin essential oil not just inhaled but take a few drops everyday because the cinnamon oil differs from the cinnamon extract which is a water extract a hot water extract where a tea does not give you what the essential oil gives you so when we talked about herbs the cinnamon herb is different than the cinnamon essential oil you need both so take a few drops a day you’ll be very glad that you did and it tastes really really yummy when you buy a cinnamon essential oil make sure the oil is certified organic and labeled as a dietary supplement for internal use and next ginger as you mentioned ginger is good for so many folks but it really is good for weight loss and cardiovascular health also helping with inflammation now people have been talking about your fat being another organ and then now they’re saying that your microbiome is another organ so that means we’ve got some extra organs to take up and perhaps the most important so ginger essential oil again that’s different than ginger extract the spice will have some oils but not as much ginger essential oil is great it’s mildly thermogenic it’s a cardio tonic and it’s an anti-inflammatory pretty awesome absolutely yeah ginger one of the reasons I love it as well as it helps warm your system absolutely in Chinese medicine it’s great for digestion is jordans talking about another oil I don’t have on the list but I think is fantastic for weight loss is actually black pepper essential oil black pepper Jordan mentioned earlier of the hot peppers that he had talked about really warming your system so black pepper oil is great but probably my favorite essential oil for fat loss is grapefruit oil and their studies Jordan on people actually smelling grapefruit oil and it actually helping your body produce enzymes that break down body fat and especially reduce cravings is a big thing and also grapefruit is great for blood sugar so think about it if you’re sitting there and you’ve got diabetes or metabolic syndrome your blood sugar will be improved what does your doctor tell you if you lose some weight so I recommend every day a combination of cinnamon essential oil ginger essential oil and grapefruit drops of each in juice or in water warm or cold three times a day that’s a lot but it’s very worth it so two drops of each of the three essential oils two to three times a day right before meals is a great way to do it or on an empty stomach I think you’re going to have great results now when you’re using grapefruit anything make sure that there’s not any interactions with your medications because one of the reasons grapefruit works it does alter your detoxification enzymes system yeah but in this case it’ll help you as long as you’re not on medications that can be let’s just say problematic what happens with grapefruit it extends the half-life or shortens the breakdown of a medication it stays in your system longer which is why you need to be careful if there’s any drug interactions between grapefruit and your medicine awesome absolutely great let’s step into and we can touch on other oils here there’s things like holy basil oil I think lavender and chamomile oil can be great for reducing stress which in fact will help weight loss you know Jordan a lot of people hold on to body weight in fact there’s a study on this because they’re not sleeping enough yes I was going to get into this this is the number eight secret we don’t have here but there’s been research that shows that sleeping more as you eat less they did a study where people slept four hours a night so it wasn’t no sleep four hours a night for an extended period of time and they all had greater sugar cravings maybe harm cravings the next day so getting sleep not only to write them out but at the right time is critical but so is coconut there we go I’ve heard the fads you’ve heard the let’s say gigantic claims we were the very first folks to bring extra virgin coconut oil or virgin coconut oil to health food stores all the way back in 2004 maybe 2003 and back then the coconut diet craze was just hitting but coconuts great for the thyroid so if you want to replace your fat go for an oil change with coconut oil two to four tablespoons a day cook with it in smoothies eat it off the spoon you can massage it use it as a carrier oil in fact would be awesome Josh’s take a tablespoon of coconut oil drop some of these essential oils and put it in your mouth and actually let it sort of dissolve that could replace putting those essential oils and that’d be a pretty cool yeah to do yeah I’ll mention a couple other great thoughts here by Jordan one you know you could do all pulling with it there’s another great thing and then also here another thing is you could sort of make your own net now I’ve seen Jordan people do natural cellulite rubs early on mixing coconut oil with sin with with grapefruit and ginger specifically rubbing it in an area I think can be beneficial as well but coconut oil Jordan one of the reasons why we both know it’s so effective for fat loss is it can change those medium trent chain triglycerides which your body actually has to go through a lot shorter process to burn for energy versus other fats and so this is why reason I think a lot of triathlons triathletes actually consume it before workout even during workouts my cousin who’s a triathlete here in Tennessee he actually does a mixture of coconut oil raw honey and sea salt loading fat loading before he does his Ironman triathlons and again it’s the old spaghetti dinners doesn’t it oh yeah there you go so again coconut oil so beneficial for fat loss okay what do we have next collagen now here’s something that’s interesting and you may be somebody who’s been on these yo-yo diets and often what I hear is I lost water weight but I look older have you heard that before where she loses weight or if they lose a lot of weight they have all this extra weak skin collagen not only in my opinion can help you lose weight because it sort of swells in the gut yep and it helps to delay gastric emptying etc I actually think that it helps you look better along the way because it strengthens your connective tissue oh yeah so if you are interested in losing weight and looking better this is basically a look your best for your twenty thirty or forty year high school reunion collagen is a great protein source for you not only to lose weight but to look better at the same time you don’t want to lose weight and look older I know people that have had various gas Drix surgeries and they lose weight but sometimes they look worse yeah that there ashin they’re sort of you know just not healthy looking skin wise collagen would be a huge help if you’re somebody who’s had bariatric surgery yeah I absolutely agree and a few other just important notes about collagen one I mentioned cellulite earlier I think one of the reasons is people start to lose weight and their skin starts to sag or cellulite build up there are some critical things missing number one is collagen as you’re saying we know prolene and glycine are so crucial for that collagen matrix and tightening and toning up your skin also we know that collagen is critical because it’s high it’s protein it’s amino acids and if somebody is going to lose weight Jordan I typically put them on a diet that is high in protein fiber and healthy fats you know clues skip doing a lot of the starches and a lot of the sugars and really load up on fiber healthy fat and protein during a diet I think it’s critical in college and there are many different types of collagen I know we love to collagen type 1 type 2 type 3 type 5 and type 10 collagen type 2 specifically is very very good for your gut health who know type 1 and 3 your helps tone and tighten your skin so we recommend doing it you know I love doing recipes with a collagen powder doing a collagen protein a couple scoops in a smoothie every single morning me with some flax meal some coconut oil or coconut milk really doing that thermogenic metabolism boosting smoothie first thing in the morning and then also the number one food that’s high in collagen jordan is what bone broth or alternately eating the parts of the animal that we typically ignore we talked about how the crispy organic chicken skin is a good source of hyaluronic acid doesn’t have to be crispy but it tastes much better and even the fat that comes from bone broth which we call sort of bone broth omegas is awesome so that fat that my grandmother called schmaltz save it it’s really good but collagen is a great protein source because it does not contribute to kidney and liver toxicity it’s used differently due to its amino acid makeup yeah so people that are consuming hundreds of grams away protein pea protein egg protein rice protein you’ve got to detoxify that collagen actually helps to detoxify collagen might be the best weight loss protein yeah absolutely and this is something hey if you know somebody who’s really big into fitness maybe working out a lot I think they need to know this information Jordan is most of them are actually consuming too many forms of animal protein and plant-based protein and not enough collagen and bone broth and things like that on a daily basis that really support their joints their connective tissue their gut health their skin it is critical collagen beneficial for so many things what is burst fitting really what is the general category where we go that we would call that in the literature that makes burst fit successful because get this folks cardio is out I know that aerobics was real popular there’s some good benefits but don’t you see people that run marathons and do aerobics and you’re wondering like Europe you’re a marathon runner like yeah you’re into exercise they don’t look good what’s the reason and what should people be doing no matter what level of fitness they’re at you know I’m a big believer in burst training but here’s the absolute truth join you know I did triathlons for years and it really if you if you start doing long distance triathlons I’m talking about sport but the you know the Sprint’s but the longer distance and marathon running you start getting frail you start getting weak it just I really member it’s apt my strength as you know and so one of the things they’re finding is that can increase cortisol over time and if cortisol stays high over time it can be known as your aging hormone you can actually age faster because of all of the oxidative stress on your body versus burst training and burst training is exercising like a sprinter rather than a marathon runner and so if you typically would go out and just run and do a jog or get on the treadmill go one steady pace instead you’re getting on a treadmill or I typically instead do this on something like a spin bike and I’ll go really hard for 30 seconds and then easy for 30 seconds and really hard and so you’re doing intervals of Sprint’s and resting and the incredible thing Jordan is they’ve done studies in fact there was a great study done in Wales and they actually found that they actually did the study on spin bikes they’re saying the whales that sprinted when they were spinning or much in better shape than the one exactly these wells were really fit they were trim so now you’re gonna come tree Wales and they actually did they did a study on a spin bike and they had people do 20 minutes of interval training versus 40 minutes of straight steady hard cardio on a spin bike the incredible thing was after the 10-week study the group that exercised half the amount of time the 20 minutes that did the burst training lost three times more body fat than the other group and get this the cyclists because they are cyclists they actually improved in long-distance cycling by not practicing for their event isn’t it amazing I used to say would you rather look like a sprinter or a marathon runner – the whole small speedo thing that’s not attractive on men regardless but that’s pretty amazing because if you look at someone like a Usain Bolt oh yeah and some of those guys building they’re in great shape chiseled whereas marathon runners kind of tend to be weak and really thin right and cyclists are the same I used to live at the top cyclists and I thought their arms are this big because they are burning cortisol and they’re burning protein yeah absolutely Jordan you know you look at like this Olympics Allyson Felix I mean just an amazing just beautiful fit woman and you know I think in general if you want to have that really toned body I mean look at that sprinters are built perfectly in a way in terms of their and their fit that’s the other thing – I mean they were made – laughs yes for a long period of time you know I saw a during this last Olympics some of the different athletes and some of the sprinters you look at like Michael Johnson he still looks good he still looks really fit so again this isn’t just about looking at it’s for your long-term health exercising like a sprinter rather than a marathon runner in Jordan I used to I saw a comic once and they said that the doctor said hey if you want to live a long time exercise an hour a day the truth is you can get away with sometimes with exercising an hour a week 20 minutes three times a week with you’re doing burst training the great news is everybody has time for that dude even if you’re travelling if you can’t run you can you can jog for your burst and walk anybody can do it anybody can exercise well what do you do for the exercise if you’ve got bad NEADS here’s what i’d recommend if you have bad knees you can still do burst training number one in the pool you know I love doing swimming workouts and so you may swim hard to one end take a breather and rest swim to another end that’s all right there as Jordan showing off his dance moves were uh right now as well dance knows it good is it good exercise that’s what you’re showing yeah so and I was going to say this as well you know you can also even if you have bad knees oftentimes cycling can be good you’re not going to you’re not going to turn it way up to where it’s really hard to cycle but just just getting on a spin bike and doing it very light intervals where you’re spinning your legs more quickly so I think a spin bike and I think getting in the pool those are great ways to do burst rings so you don’t need to be jumping up and down and impacting your knees and in fact my mom does burst training on a rebounder on a mini trampoline yeah very very great way to do it and again if you’re with you got knee issues you don’t really have to leave the trampoline yeah I can just sort of move up trampoline training is amazing fact we were driving the other day and saw one of those trampoline places for the kids your digestion is better reversing the gravitational pull is very key so you can do this principle of training quickly effectively you will look better support your collagen it’s a great thing but here’s the deal I we said lose weight fast probably the number one tip I could give you and I promise you if you will follow this in three weeks you could lose as much as 10 pounds and it is the simplest and most backward according to the conventional wisdom skip breakfast I know what you heard from Bill Cosby and everyone else growing up breakfast is the most important meal of the day what if I told you it was the least what if I told you that breakfast could be eaten at noon I know Denny says that eat breakfast for breakfast lunch and dinner breakfast means what break fast the bottom line is we eat too long we wake up at 6 we have the wrong thing and we go to sleep at midnight of the wrong thing the amount of time in a day from your first bite to your last depend compared to how much you rest is a big ratio we need to cat so I believe that most people aren’t even hungry for breakfast oh yeah I sorta have to force myself sometimes they say you gotta have cereal you got to have skim milk that’s diabetes in a bowl right yeah guess who developed the breakfast is the most important meal campaign cereal company material companies folks I’m telling you and you might I know what you’re going to ask I have blood sugar issues I need eat six times a day what about throwing the logs on the fire I don’t know who came up with that but you want to know how to lose weight if I were going to be needing to trim down for some reason I would skip breakfast and in fact I would make my first meal as late as it can be say that you have lunch 12:00 1:00 or 2:00 eat for four six or eight hours and then shut off your eating the rest of the time and while you’re not eating here’s the great news consume broth bone broth is one of the best things you can do during the non eating time it’s just about avoiding calories your guts going to be better I promise you if you skip breakfast for three consecutive weeks you will be leaner it’s it works like gravity here’s the other last thing I’ll say you could eat all the same amount of food in a shorter period of time yep and you’ll still lose weight it’s all about hormones yeah Jordan I remember doing this remember years ago when we did the Daniel Fast together and I believe when I was eating I ate at noon three and six and I remember I mean I you know losing a lot of weight I mean pounds yeah 19 pounds and went and gained it all you know went and gained it back over the next few weeks on purpose because I didn’t need to lose it but just to say I mean if you are a person who is interested in intermittent fasting which is a lot of way to do all but it’s an easier way easier way I typically when I’ve done this again I’ve done three meals a day still but I’ve eaten around noon three and six o’clock similar thing and Jordan I’ve noticed for myself I typically don’t start getting really hungry until around 11 o’clock anyways and just hey during the morning load up on water with a little bit of lemon juice or during that time or bone broth during that time and and then then eat lunch initially warm things teas are great too some of these teas we mentioned or water and essential oils here’s the thing you might be asking also I have meetings I have work I don’t want to be tired I did a retrospective study of my own life during my elementary middle school in high school days and what I realized was that every class I had before lunch I had the best grades and the legal problems yeah every class I had after lunch fell asleep yes literally fell asleep in class and they were a little lenient back in the day no ruler to to snap up slap on the desk but I fell asleep and what did I eat for lunch bagels and juice boxes and stuff like that Peter a healthy B levels Little Debbie snack cake all right what we’re not going to mention bran sir I didn’t say lender’s those are totals but folks the deal is if you’re facing a lion out in the wild which no one wants to think about that would you rather face one that’s just eaten or one that has yet to eat if you want to go into a meeting sharp go into a meeting in a fasted State because your brain will start burning fat and ketones we hear about that right I’m telling you folks skip breakfast after a few days you’ll be sharp you’ll be on fire and guess what when your start to get hungry guess what’s happening when you’re fasting you’re burning fat body fat remember you said you had that question about belly fat the best way to burn it is to let your body do the burning I haven’t eaten anything today well I had bone broth and I had tea like we talked about but I sort of getting hungry you’re making me hungry and I’m burning fat right now I’m burn fat I love it Jordan you know one of the things too that I used to teach a class years ago when it was all about how to transform your body from being a car burner into a fat burner and one of the things they found jumping back here to burst training and then combining it with some of these principles they found with burst training when you are doing cardiovascular exercise you are burning fat while you’re working out but your body doesn’t burn fat after you workout the great thing about burst training is your body continues to burn fat for the next 36 hours so even while you’re sleeping the following night your body is still burning fat so as jordan is saying you know also in turning your body into a fat burner getting more healthy fats like coconut oil in your diet is key again skipping breakfast so think about that if you’re getting more fat your diet more protein and more fiber your body stops burning all those carbohydrates or doesn’t have as many to burn so then it says what’s my next form of fuel it’s fat it’s burning it the next night after burst training and then it’s still burning it all the way through breakfast here’s another study that shows because questions are well what about my blood sugar what about my meetings at number three which is how can I exercise if I haven’t eaten well guess what I exercise this morning for two hours when I include my sauna says oh yeah on an empty stomach there’s research that shows when you exercise at an empty stomach you burn more fat you’re not feeding it with a bunch of carbohydrate yeah it’s really awesome folks these seven secrets will get you in the best shape of your life our bra actually asked a question she says my heart doctor says no coconut oil well if you’re out going to a cardiologist who says no coconut oil they’re probably old school because coconut oil is saturated fat there is zero proof by the way that saturated fat causes cardiovascular disease and certainly coconut oil will not raise cholesterol not that that causes Guardian disease but I’m not telling you to go against your doctor but I would tell you to go online and look up the benefits of coconut oil there’s some great sites dr. ray P so many medical doctors Mary Anne eggs she’s a PhD as well but look up benefits of coconut oil find some published research or a medical doctor that recommends it and bring it in to your doctor or find a doctor you go that will be happy to partner with you on your journey to health we are not anti doctor but a doctors not your boss they need to be your partner I absolutely agree Jordan another comment here from Clarissa she says and I love this idea she says I love adding a table or I love adding coconut oil to my green juice on a daily basis in the morning and imagine just imagine this combo greens with bone broth or collagen powder plus coconut oil it’s great about coconut oil or fat in your green juice green juice and veggie juice till contains sugar fat and fiber slow it down so that when I was in Germany they added cream to their carrot juice not only to aid the absorption but to slow day the absorption of carotenoids slow motion of sugars that’s a great tip alright few other questions and comments here Ruthie says this is hilarious to me dr. axe who’s the guy next to you yeah he doesn’t usually give me a proper introduction I’m just the guy here I’m so like the Jim to your Marlon Perkins you know so guys this is uh this is Jordan Rubin Jordan is the author of the makers diet he’s the founder from a founder of Garden of Life and now has a lot of sponsible for everything that he is today that’s good yeah so sorry mr. and mrs. axe I mean other than the parentals so Jordans been a great friend of mine a great friend of mine for years and he is really I believe he’s probably the best supplement formulator in the world in fact when I personally take vitamins and supplements they’re either ones that I’ve created he’s created or where we’ve co-created so really talented there so again Jordan but check out his died a book the makers diet and some of his new supplement brands like ancient nutrition Numa and and some of the others there as well and then some people had some questions and wanted to check some stuff out here so we talked about some of the best herbs here so so you guys can see this Jordan let’s see here another question for you we’ll find let’s see here somebody says Jordan are you still with garden of life that’s a great question and I have left garden of life it’s a company that I founded my baby and a garden of life is now owned by another group and I am doing some really great things as Josh mentioned I started a company called get real nutrition Josh and I started two companies together ancient nutrition and numa and then we’re also partnering on all of this great content in fact we have a brand new book coming out before the end of the year that you’re going to want to check out called essential oils ancient medicine for the modern world and it’ll span a whole book series we’ve got a lot cooking but Josh and I are gonna be doing a lot of things together in the future so look out for that a question here what are your thoughts on maca root that’s a great question I think Maka’s good maca is really a cruciferous vegetables a root it’s got glucosinolates into all three carbonyl it’s really good I do not believe it’s a miracle for weight loss as some people say but it’s a very good food it is yeah you know I sometimes a tablespoon of my smoothie on a regular basis I’m doing a superfood smoothie and it does have some benefits as an adaptogen and it’s sometimes known as I think it’s actually meaning as strength to the stallion and and it’s an Aztec the female ginseng is what people call it yeah it’s it’s a borderline adaptogen so absolutely and then someone says Jordan can you explain ketones to me or or what are your thoughts on ketosis and the ketogenic diet for fat loss absolutely I think if you go on a ketogenic diet it can be really really good now I don’t know about you but it’s difficult for me to stick to I like everyone I love fruit I love sweets and so for me I get the same results by eating a healthy and balanced diet in a short period of time so for me intermittent fasting is the same results as ketogenic ketogenic hard for me to stick with and a lot of people practice a ketogenic diet where they’re eating bacon and a lot of things that I don’t believe are healthy however if you can do it if you can keep your carbs lower than 20 grams a day I don’t like you to eat artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols that if you can do it tiny amount of veggies lots of meat lots of fat I think it can be really really good for you I think a ketogenic if you’ve got rain stuff if you have guts stuff if you want to burn fat keep a keto ketogenic diet can be great but all of these secrets I think can get you the same or better results alright somebody asked can you guys do a quick review of everything you just covered in one minute okay we’re used to doing things in one I’m going to take this side so right the water Kirby maybe I did it you want if you want to lose weight quick drink 8 ounces of water every time you reach for the pantry or the fridge that’s the water cure the herbs hot peppers for thermogenesis they help you burn fat cinnamon for blood sugar holy basil is a good adaptogen and ashwagandha helps reduce cortisol levels essential oils the dr. axe big three cinnamon grapefruit and number three is ginger two drops in liquid two to three times a day or mix it in coconut oil eat it off the spoon and coconut oil two to four tablespoons a day cook with it put it in smoothies rub it on your face take a bath in it coconut oil is really good for your thyroid lots of other things too you got 30 seconds left all right here we go so collagen we know collagen protein is great for tightening up and firming your skin in your tissue so it’s great for that it’s also very high in protein in fact one big scoop of a bone broth powder or collagen powder
