Welcome to Episode 38 of the Dr. Mike Show!

Today are are going to get into my top 5 mind hacks for better eating (and living). The mental aspect of nutrition is often the limited factor in our success. Is our mind helping or hurting us do the things that we need to do each day in order to reach out goals?

In this episode I share with you 5 of my goto mental strategies for winning the hand to hand combat that is daily healthy living. We talk about 2 strategies I swiped and remixed from meditation pioneer Jn Kabat-Zinn, how to avoid the trap of needing to find a consistent rhythm for your diet, and how commitment to ONE (that's right, just one) healthy habit can be the thing that pushes you forward towards your goals.

Welcome to Episode 37 of the Dr. Mike Show.

This week I’ve put together for you some of my favorite snippets from season 1 of my other show - Friday Fuel Up.

Friday Fuel Up was created so that I could pull nutrition and performance secrets from some of the world’s best. In these highlights you’ll hear from

-Professional skier and mountain biker KC Deane about how he melds goals into actions. didn’t have access to my office to record an episode

-The head of nutrition for the LA Rams, Joey Blake on how he unlocks the power of nutrition in his NFL athletes (and how you can do it too)

-Legendary outdoorsman and snowboarder Jeremy Jones on his method for building and maintaining a high level of fitness.

-Olympic Champion Triathletes (and Brothers), Alistair and Jonny Brownlee on the difference between theory and practice for when it comes to recovering from competitions and training.

-Former NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly on one of his inspirations for his record setting 341 consecutive days in space. -Windboarding legend, Robbie Nash on how he became on of the best in the world while being allergic to setting goals.

-Jordan Mazur, the Director of Nutrition: San Francisco 49ers, on the nutrition strategies that he uses with NFL players that you can put into play in your life too.

Doing all these interviews was one of my highlights of the past year and I hope that you get as much out of them as I did. You can see all the episodes from Season 1 at the American Pistachio Growers (americanpistachios.org) website.

Welcome to Episode 36 of the Dr. Mike Show!

Today I discuss a long overdue and highly requested topic - youth nutrition. What should you do to optimize your kids nutrition? More importantly HOW should you go about doing it.

This episode is full of everything:

- A little science, like energy density

- A little human behavior, like the role of modeling in food choices

- A little trickery, like how to hide vegetables in your kids’ meals

- A little humor, like my 11yo’s views on the role of beans in global warming.

We kick the episode off with a sad/funny email I got from a PR person trying to pitch me a misguided article/interview about protein - you’ll want to listen to this :)

Welcome to Episode 35 of the Dr. Mike Show!

We also look at plant based protein powders and how they compare to whey/casein based protein powders plus my personal recommendation on what proteins you should eat.

Welcome to Episode 31 of the Dr. Mike Show!

There seem to be so many “superfoods” and “must eat” foods out there that if you ate all of them, you’d spend all your time eating and you’d eat way to many calories. If you only looked in magazines and online to get your nutrition inspiration, you would think that infinite variety of “superfoods” is essential for good health.

The truth is that research shows, people eat generally the same 20 or so foods on a regular basis. Some daily and some weekly. I think that it is important to have a core number of foods that you eat day in and day. These foods need to be nutritious but also deliver a unique nutritional punch that you can’t get else where.

In this episode I share with you the foods that I make sure I eat every single day.

Welcome to Episode 30 of the Dr. Mike Show!

One of the hardest things to do when it comes to nutrition is to “listen to our bodies.” What make this so hard is that there are a myriad of signals related to hunger, fullness, and our drive to eat that we don’t consciously register or know about.

In this episode I reflect on an incredible conversation that I once had with Dr. Barbara Roll (link to PSU profile) where we discuss feelings of satiety, how you can maximize them to curb excess calorie consumption, and what people are missing out on when it comes to eating and fullness.

Welcome to Episode 29 of the Dr. Mike Show!

Our body’s and behaviors have memories. Oftentimes when we want to make a change with our nutrition or activity, we have the urge to start from scratch. Throw everything out and replace it with a completely new diet or workout plan. This is a mistake! By doing this you are ignoring valuable and personal insights to unlocking long term changes.

In this episode I show you how to deploy the “Look-Back Method” which will help you avoid making this mistake while also giving you a leg up on accelerating and sustaining change.

Welcome to Episode 28 of the Dr. Mike Show!

One of the most powerful tools that we have for changing our nutrition, habits, and body is looking at our current behaviors and improving on them. It is so tempting liquid everything that we are doing in order to adopt the “newest secret” in nutrition. This makes solidifying long term changes in our diet very difficult as we are essentially starting everything from scratch.

Instead, we are better served to look at our current nutrition habits, see what is working and what needs work. I call this the Diet Audit and it will fast track your long term success with your nutrition plan.

In this episode of the Dr. Mike Show I walk you through exactly how to go through the Diet Audit process.
