56 – Chef AJ and Sharon – Eating and Nutrition – Part 2

This is a continuation of the great and informative conversation I am having with Sharon McRae and Chef AJ on the topic of which foods should we eat and which should we stay away from.

CHEF AJ + SHARON ARE BACK!!!
Dr. Dave had to bring back these two amazing ladies! They are smart and so well educated on THE most healthy options we can chose to nourish ourselves and our families.
 
CHEF AJ’S OVERNIGHT MUESLI
1/2 cup gluten-free oats
2 Tablespoons currants
1 Tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon APPLE pie spice
2 ounces apple juice
2 ounces unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla (optional)
1 fresh apple
 
Place gluten-free oats, currants, chia seeds and apple pie spice into a mixing bowl. Add apple juice and unsweetened almond milk. Add alcohol-free vanilla (optional) if using. Grate fresh apple over the top of the bowl. Mix. Place in refrigerator overnight.

JUICING
Dr. Dave loves juicing vegetables with a bit of fruit like an apple. This is a great snack in your day or a great start to your day.
 
START YOUR DAY WITH WARM LEMON WATER
The first thing you should have in the the morning is warm lemon water to detox your body and flush the fat. Just fill a mug with water and heat it up and add a teaspoon or two of lemon juice. Do this before you eat or drink anything.
 
CHALLENGES EATING OUT
Guess what? You can ask the restaurant to make YOUR food YOUR way. You are paying for it! Do not feel bad asking for things your way. Admittedly, during peak hours it may take longer. Look at the side dishes or the kid’s menu. Often there are some good options in those places. Look at the menu online before you go and plan what you can have in advance.
 
LET’S TALK BREAD
Dr. Dave is gluten-free bread and enjoys a millet based bread. Sharon makes tortillas from corn flour or bread from chick pea flour. Many people still want to enjoy breads. There are good, better, best breads. Chef AJ loves a recipe for potato waffles as her bread. Regular white flour bread is absolutely out! It is not a good option!
 
GLUTEN-FREE
People may not test positive in the gluten blood test. However, many people like Sharon and Dr. Dave are extremely tired after they have anything with gluten in it. So is this an intolerance? Well, who knows, but “food should energize you” says Sharon. Gluten made Sharon and Dr. Dave got so tired they would need a nap after meals with gluten.
 
LISTENER QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION:
Take a listen to today’s show and hear what Dr. Dave, Sharon, and Chef AJ have to say about our listeners questions. They cover hot topics like: cow’s milk, soy milk, eating meat, B12, and what are the most addictive foods to humans!

Quickie – How to Exercise at Home Without a Gym

Today on the Slice Your Age “Quickie,” Dr. Dave teaches you how he works out at home without ever stepping into a gym.

55 – Chef AJ and Sharon – Let’s Get This Eating and Nutrition Thing Right!


Today on Slice Your Age, Dr. Dave has Chef AJ and Sharon McRae as his guests. Chef AJ is an internationally acclaimed author, speaker, nutritionist, and of course… CHEF! Sharon, who you have met before on episode 49 is the founder of Eat Well – Stay Well LLC, a company based in Maryland that coaches people to their best health through nutrition.  This is a must listen episode… perhaps one of the most information packed since the inception of the show. There was actually so much info that there will be a “Part 2” coming next week!

CHICAGO’S VEGAN MANIA
Dr. Dave, Sharon, and Chef AJ will all be at the awesome upcoming Chicago Vegan Mania. We hope you can join them!

“Vegan culture and community have grown rapidly in the last few years. Not long ago, most people had never heard the word vegan. Vegans – people who live compassionately by not eating or wearing animals or products that come from animals – were basically invisible. We did much of our shopping in tiny health food co-ops, and our dining in a few carefully selected restaurants.

Now there are dozens of products with the word vegan gracing the fronts of the packaging in most supermarkets, and vegan options abound in dining establishments all over the place. Celebrities describe how their vegan diets give them their sexy bodies or protect them from heart disease, and the small but burgeoning vegan culture is moving from the fringes to middle America.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in Chicago. Famous as the “hog butcher to the world”, Chicago boasts at least 18 exclusively vegan restaurants (and dozens more vegan-friendly ones), several local vegan food companies, and a rapidly growing community of herbivores.

Chicago VeganMania is a celebration of this dynamic new community. We bring together the vegan restaurants and food companies, leaders and entrepreneurs, doctors and chefs, businesses and organizations, singers and dancers, and we put them in one big place to show them all off to the world.” from the Chicago Vegan Mania website: http://chicagoveganmania.com/about.html

OLIVE OIL – RE-THINK THIS
Sharon would like us to reconsider our use of olive oil. She feels it is too high calorie and not enough nutrients to justify it’s use. You can use water or vegetable broth to marinate or cook your foods and vegetables. She is a health coach and with her many clients that is one of the first things she has remove or replace. Just two tablespoons have 240 calories + it is so highly processed. We do need healthy fats in our diets like avocados and nuts, but not olive oil. Please reconsider any use of olive oil in your life right now. Here is more information about the negative effects of olive oil: https://www.pritikin.com/your-health/healthy-living/eating-right/1103-whats-wrong-with-olive-oil.html Also, here is more info about oil from one of Chef AJ’s favorites Dr. Klaper: http://doctorklaper.com/answers/answers10/

PROCESSED FOODS NEED TO GO!
If you can make it in your kitchen yourself you can have it. “In general, anything that comes in a box, can, jar is processed,” says Chef AJ. We need to focus our lives on whole unprocessed foods. Processing takes things out and adds things that we do not need and actually are harmful. Now there are transition foods that are less processed like diced tomatoes in a jar that have 1-3-5 ingredients that you know what they are and how to pronounce them.

OFF THE SHELF CEREAL GO RAW GRANOLA
Sharon recommends the Go Raw brand as a grab and go cereal that has great all natural and very little processing. She feeds it to her family. And Dr. Dave and Yoko love to add fresh organic berries and fruit to their morning granola. Go Raw’s Granola ingredients are: Organic Buckwheat Oats, Organic Flax Seeds, Organic Raisins and Dates. http://www.goraw.com/p/70/live-granola Chef AJ makes her own granola and muesli and encourages you to make your own batches to eat and even has a video showing you the step-by-step: http://www.eatunprocessed.com/dietitian.html#54

54 – Ruby Roth Takes on Fox News!

Author, teacher, artist, animal rights and vegan activist Ruby Roth, is our guest today!
 
“Featured on CNN, FOX, Today, and other major media outlets, Ruby Roth is the world’s leading author and illustrator of vegan and vegetarian books for children.
 
Vegan since 2003, Roth was teaching art at an elementary school when her students’ fascination with veganism inspired her to write That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals in 2009—the first book of its kind in children’s literature. Vegan Is Love and V Is for Vegan followed. Today, Roth’s books have been translated into multiple languages including German, Italian, Korean, French, Polish, and Slovenian.
 
Roth has received international attention for her sensitive, yet frank advocacy of a vegan diet and lifestyle. Complementing her degrees in art and American Studies, she has researched animal agriculture, health, nutrition, and the benefits of a plant-based diet for over a decade. Roth lives in Los Angeles with her beau and 8-year-old stepdaughter (everyone is vegan).”

 
HOW COME DOCTORS ARE NOT PRESCRIBING VEGANISM INSTEAD OF PILLS?
Ruby responds to Dr. Dave: “The doctors are not studying healthy people and are focused on the sick.” “Veganism is a people’s movement, not from an institution.” It is great to discover how you can live a kinder life not eating or using animals or animals products.
 
VEGANS DRIVE THE HEALTHY CHOICES IN THE FOOD MOVEMENT
Vegans are the leaders in healthy food choices and options. If you are a vegan, lead by example to your circle of family and friends. Everyone has a choice, but many people are wholly unaware how awesome and fantastic and truly good for the planet and earth.
 
BUT AREN’T GRASS FED AND ORGANIC MEATS AND DAIRY GOOD ENOUGH?
“This is truly misleading. There are no purely organic all natural meat sources.” says Ruby. Many of these supposedly healthier options are any better or healthier, but are just packaged and priced higher in a whole or natural store. Listen to Dr. Dave and Ruby talk about this hot topic and controversy on today’s show.
 
RUBY’S CHILDRENS BOOKS – WE DON’T EAT THE ANIMALS
Ruby has gorgeously beautiful children’s books all about how some people don’t eat animals. So she educates and entertains most beautifully kids (and adults) of all ages all about loving animals and how we don’t need a life eating them. She was inspired to create her own books because she could only find talking vegetables or animals that seems to talk down to kidsor be relatable. So with her background in American Studies and Art, she decided to create these books herself and to address real issues like factory farms, the environment, and endangered species. These are amazing and beautiful books!

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – DIET AND CANCER – IS THERE A CONNECTION?
My friend Melinda Cooker has a great book out that I highly recommend is a great health book about the cancer and what you eat connection. You will learn about:
– Some breakthrough advancements in the understanding of cancer and it’s progression.
– Cancers can take many years to grow, but there are ways to stop that growth long before it is ever detected.
– The twenty-one most common types of cancer and the risk factors associated with each one.
– How to protect your family from the horrors of cancer by changing your lifestyle.
– Thirty-three of the most common risk factors for cancer and how they can actually be avoided.
– How to stop cancer before it takes over your life by learning about some positive results from numerous research studies.
– How to start “reprogramming” yourself and making changes in your lifestyle.
http://www.dietcancerconnection.com/
 
BOOK RECOMMENDATION – COCO’S HEALTHY COOKING
Another fantastic book that Dr. Dave and Yoko love, especially now they are on an only plant-based food diet is Coco’s Healthy Cooking.
“More and more research is available about the health benefits of a low-fat, plant-based diet making many people curious about it. However, it does seem like a daunting task to change your diet so drastically. In this book, I have tried to show that you can still enjoy your meals even if you no longer eat meat and dairy by choosing recipes that taste good, yet are made from “real” foods. I love cook books that show pictures of the finished recipe, so I thought that others would enjoy having those pictures as well.” says the author, Melinda Coker.

53 – The Word No Will Change Your Life!

Slice-Your-Age-Podcast
In this episode you will learn how to use the word “NO” more effectively. Once you are able to say “no,” you will discover how your life is transformed into freedom! Our guest is the wonderful Melissa Lierman! Melissa says: “Yes is a dangerous word! Every single time you say YES to something, you are saying NO to something else!”
 
JUST SAY NO
Just saying NO resonates with both Melissa and Dr. Dave because they are on a mission to live an authentic path in life. Saying YES to things you really do not want to do is not being authentic. Listen to how both Melissa and Dr. Dave used to say YES when they didn’t want to at various times in their lives. (Note: I think they are both mostly cured now).
– What do you need to say no to in your life?
– Remember every time you say YES to something you are saying NO to something else!
– Which is more important?
– Are you saying YES to the PTA or overtime at work or a demanding family member at the SACRIFICE of yourself and your own family?
– Are you saying YES too much to your fully capable children and NO to much needed adult time with your spouse or friends/girlfriends?
– Are you feeling stressed out and over obligated and over committed? There are only so many hours in a day and it is YOUR CHOICE how to spend them!
– Are you spending time that is good and healthy for your life? Or are you doing things at the EXPENSE of your life and happiness to make someone else’s life better?
 
WHY SAY NO
“There are only so many hours in the day! These are finite. How do you choose to spend them?” says Melissa. Saying NO will change our life! Start today! “Decide your priorities and this will help you make decisions on what to say yes or no to.” Both Dr. Dave and Melissa make their families their top priority and this is the start of their decision making with their available time in their schedules. Saying NO will change your life.
—> Less stress
—> More productive life
—> Happier life
—> Living for YOU not for others
—> Less guilt
—> More time for you and your life
—> Allow you to achieve your personal goals
 
BOUNDARIES:
– Boundaries help us to continue to love others, even when we say no to them and hold limits when appropriate
– Boundaries are a ‘property line’. Their purpose is to help us know what we are responsible for and what we are not responsible for.
– We are responsible for our own feelings, actions, and behaviors. When we take responsibility for someone else, we keep them in an immature state.
– Boundaries help us gain control of our own lives and fulfill what we were created for – love.
– When we have the proper motivation we experience freedom and responsibility.
 
WAYS TO SAY NO!
#1 NEVER APOLOGIZE!!!
 
“I am unable to commit to this as I have other priorities at the moment.”
 
“Now’s not a good time as I’m in the middle of something. How about we reconnect at X time?”
 
“I’d love to do this, but …”
 
“Let me think about it first and I’ll get back to you.”
 
“This doesn’t meet my needs now but I’ll be sure to keep you in mind.”
 
“I’m not the best person to help on this. Why don’t you try X?”
 
Try saying “I don’t” vs. “I can’t” – don’t is a CHOICE… can’t is a restriction… psychological difference in perception
 
“I’ve really had fun in the past, but I can’t make it this year. That week is already packed for me.”
 
“Wow, that’s an interesting project. I’m really busy with the ABC assignment right now, so let me know if you want me to re-prioritize.” (for the boss giving you another project) Listen to Melissa walk you through a very specific strategy to handle the boss that keeps piling it on!
 
Say… I always… I always workout at 6am… I always have family dinner at 6pm
 
Say… I only… I only eat natural foods with ingredients I can pronounce
 
YOUR ASSIGNMENT:
NOTICE:
Notice over the next month how many times you say yes when you mean no. Keep track during the next month (or week) when this happens. What are the results?
PRACTICE:
Practice scenarios with yourself or loved one where you need to start saying no
START:
Start saying no to small things in your life. Could it be doing your teenager’s laundry? Could it be someone calling last minute?
CONTINUE:
Pause and think of how this will affect YOU and YOUR LIFE. Even tell people that you will have to THINK ABOUT IT and get back to them.
 
WHAT CAN YOU DO RIGHT NOW?
Take a look at the landscape of your week and month and the rest of the year. What have you already said yes to that you know you do not want to do and you wish you did not say yes to? Can you get out of any of these with grace? Will your book club hate you if you don’t go to anymore book club gatherings where the book is never discussed and you did not read the book and do not know half of the group any longer? Other times you need to follow throw on a commitment you did make, but do not re-commit or sign up for more! Make a list and make an exit strategy!
 
CAUTIONARY AND CLOSING:
People in your life may be very shocked and even disturbed if you start saying no to them and YES to yourself. Be prepared for some immediate fall out from friends, so called friends, children, and even spouses. Have the courage to put YOU first and make YOUR life and health a priority. NO is one of the most powerful words… which is why toddlers are first obsessed with it when they learn of it and its power. How did we manage to forget this? It is your life. It is your choice. Don’t be guilted in to doing things by other people to make THEIR lives better! This is your life, your health, and your happiness! Live your life for YOU!

52 – One Year Celebration Show – The Most Important Things You Need to Know to Slice Your Age

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastIt is the one year birthday of Slice Your Age and today’s show is a party as well as a recap of the most important things we have spoken about over the past year. Dr. Dave and Yoko have Sandy on as their guest. Everything seems to come together as they discuss happiness, meditation, eating, sense of community and MUCH MORE. Lots of shout outs to the listeners!

HAPPINESS
“Happiness comes from the inside!” says Yoko. “Some people look happy and like they have a happy perfect life from the outside and really they are not happy on the inside. Happiness is THE most important thing. You must love yourself and think these thoughts in your head and even says them out loud! Everyone wants to be happy. Even those that are happy, want to be happier.”

WORRY ABOUT YOURSELF NOT YOUR NEIGHBORS
“Appreciate and be happy with what you have,” says guest co-host Sandy. “Do not compare yourself to your neighbors. Do not worry about their big house and new cars. You do not know if they can even afford them!  They could be all hopped up on credit cards. You worry about your life and live below your means,” says Dr. Dave.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE
“Connect with people online and offline,” says Sandy. “We are here for you and hang out with us on the podcast or twitter or facebook or send an email!” says Dr. Dave. “We are here to help you,” he says.

HATE YOUR JOB?
“Are you only living for the weekends or vacations? If you are just dreading going to work before you even get there, you need to make a change! No matter what the money you make; it is just not worth it!” says Dr. Dave.

DO YOU NEED TO END A RELATIONSHIP?
“If you tried everything to make a relationship work and you know in your heart that it is time for this to end because there are big important things that will never change.

51 – Finding Time for Exercise / Stress / Food Addiction / More

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastDr. Dave and Yoko do a show today where they answer many listener’s questions. Subjects include finding the time to exercise, food addiction, what to eat late night, stress reduction, how to become a speaker, and more! This is a very cool and informative episode!

YOKO IS BACK FROM JAPAN
Yoko went to Japan to see her most  favorite band, Smap! This band makes her happy Smap is top band and entertainers for past 20+ years in Japan. She saves and plans for flying back to Japan to see this band with her friends. It is a lot of fun from start to finish and it makes her so happy. It all starts with health and happiness. Find  your happy and do more of it! Learn more about Yoko’s beloved Smap: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-19279741.

FINDING TIME TO WORKOUT EACH DAY
Betty from Detroit wants to know how to make myself workout each day. Marsha M. wants to know how to find the time each day to work out because she cannot find it!

Everyone on the planet has the same 24 hours a day. 1 of those hours is only 4% of  your day. Does your health and fitness deserve 4% of your day and life? Think about what you do for one hour’s time. Do you watch television? Is that tv show more important than your health? Can you sit on that exercise bik

Start somewhere! Start with walking just 15 minutes a day on a break or at lunchtime. Start with just 3 days a week. Don’t throw out the whole idea of exercise if you cannot make the time for an hour each day to start. Everyone needs to start somewhere with with working out and getting out of the house and around the block is a start. Maybe you walk while dinner is cooking. Maybe you get home, change out of the those work clothes and go for a walk before transitioning to your home life? Maybe you grab the kids and they walk with you as part of your daily connecting and routine? Find the time on your calendar starting today! Find me 15 minutes today to go for a walk.

WORKING OUT AT THE OFFICE OR AT HOME
Listener Mary Beth wants to know to exercise at her desk during the day. Dr. Dave does many home exercises that can be done at home or work. You can do lunges, squats, pull ups. Dr. Dave has one of those $15 pull up bars in his door. You can do planks which are good for your core. These all can be done in 5 minutes at a time. Get some inexpensive dumbbells and do some arm workouts. If you are mom, your kids love to workout out with you. They can do it with you and count you down doing crunches too! Yoko suggests doing squats while brushing your teeth. Or fold your clothes on the floor and sit and stretch while folding clothes. Dr. Dave loves his standing desk and standing while working. Some people use a big balance ball at their desks instead of a chair to work on their core.  Just find ways to work it in.

FOOD AS DRUG OR ADDICTION
Listener Jane B. wants to know how to deal with a food addiction. Many people use food as a soother for emotional issues. People are using food not to nourish their bodies, but to nourish other parts of them. Many people eat food when they are sad or stressed or bored. Yoko suggests that maybe people are filling holes in their heart with food. Maybe you start with what you are trying to fill with food and get some help with therapy. Why are you eating for non-nourishing reasons?

Now, another thing to consider is that Dr. Dave and Yoko are vegan, plant only eaters now. It takes a whole lot to fill you up on plant only diet. You could eat all the vegetables like crazy and not put on weight. 🙂

HOW DO YOU BECOME A GREAT SPEAKER? WHERE DO YOU BEGIN?
Listener Janetsa R. wants to know how to be a speaker. You have got to start speaking in front of groups. You could join your local toastmasters, which are local groups for people that want to learn how to speak. For more information on Toastmasters International: http://www.toastmasters.org/. You need to figure out your topic(s) and find who would want to listen to you. Speaking is teaching and helping others. What do you have to offer to other people? What is your passion? Then find a small group, find local church group, find club and start talking. Dr. Dave believes in also being well prepared for your topic and outline it and research it. You can practice in the mirror and even record yourself and time yourself how long your talk is. Don’t give up and keep practicing in front of real live people.

WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE THING YOU GET FROM BEING HEALTHY?
Listener Charlotte asks what is the most valuable thing you get from being healthy? Dr. Dave says, “Waking up and enjoying each and every day!” Being healthy allows you to enjoy each day being great. “Being healthy brings you happiness,” says Yoko. “When you are healthy you can do anything you want!” says Yoko. How you spend your time or time with your loved ones is greatly affected by your health. Living your life in health and fit and strong is a whole different life than one that is sick and unhealthy and not able to really live your life.

EATING BEFORE BED
Listener Joe wants to know what to have at night for a snack. He needs to eat some food before bed for medication. Dr. Dave and Yoko do not recommend eating just before bed. Can Joe back up the time and not have it right before bed. Could it be 2 hours before bed? When you do eat before bed it should not be fruit or carbs. It should be something like nuts or almond butter or beans.

HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH STRESS?
Listener Doc Doc Webber wants to know what to do about stress. Life has stress and there is no avoiding it. #1 was to cope with stresses of life is meditation! Listen to Dr. Dave and Yoko put you through a quick meditation on this show!

50 – My Job Sucks / Weight Gain / Juicer vs Blender / More

WHOLE FOOD PLANT BASED DIET
Dr. Dave and Yoko have decided to go completely meat-free and go vegan. They no longer consume any kind of animal products. When you go to plant based whole foods diet: your health will increase, your energy will increase, your weight will go down, your blood pressure will go down.
 
WE DON’T USE ANIMAL PRODUCTS
We do not even use any skin or body products that contain anything animal related. We do not wear leather shoes or belts. Dr. Dave even gave up his leather wallet!
 
ARE YOU IN A JOB YOU HATE?
Dr. Dave has always said if you are not happy in your job, it will cause you stress, affect your health, and spill over to all over areas of your life.  Try to fix the job you are in. Try and make the best of what you have.  If it cannot be fixed or made better; you need to make a change.
 
NO MONEY OR NO CHOICE TO SWITCH JOBS
You always have a choice. Your health and happiness should be a top priority. What can you do outside of your work hours to prepare for a new direction or new career? Do you need to take classes to get updated or different skills?Have  you started a job search to see what is out there? Do you need to downsize your home and your life to afford a different lifestyle where you will be happy?
 
DREADING UPCOMING HOLIDAYS
Listener Tim is already worrying about the upcoming holidays – Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s. He always gains weight during this season – 5-10-15 pounds every year. What can he do? What can you do?
 
This is a lifestyle. It is not about overeating at parties and celebrations and then dieting and starving. You need to control your portions and make good choices. Start with taking the smaller plate and only making one trip to the buffet table. Concentrate on visiting with the people at these events and don’t make it about the food. You could even eat a healthy meal beforehand.
 
For tips and tricks and how to control holiday eating; Listen to this previous episode Dr. Dave recorded: https://www.davidmadow.com/episode-8/

The Salesman in Paragon Sports – Slice Your Age Quickie

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastListen to what the salesman at Paragon Sports in Manhattan was saying to Dr. Dave. It will be a learning and inspirational experience for you! Please do not miss it!

49 – Nutrition / Cancer Prevention / Achieving Optimum Health

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastDr. Dave brings expert guest Sharon McRae on to the show today to talk about how food plays a major role in preventing cancer and other diseases. If you are experiencing ANY health issues at this moment, or are worried about future problems, this is a serious not-to-be-missed episode.

Sharon received her training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®. Her education has equipped her with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and the importance of preventive care. Drawing on her education and experience, Sharon works with clients to help them make the dietary and lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.

In May 2012 Sharon completed additional training to become a Food for Life instructor for PCRM (Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine).  In this role she conducts nutrition and cooking classes designed by physicians and dietitians to teach disease prevention through a plant-based, low fat diet.

SHARON’S JOURNEY TO BE VEGAN
Sharon was always bothered eating animals, even as a child. She eventually was vegetarian. After a series of time in the cancer clinic with family members, Sharon was inspired to no longer eat any animal products. Her whole family was vegetarian at the time of her decision and even they were surprised. Listen to her story on this podcast.

FORKS OVER KNIVES MOVIE
Forks over Knives is a life-changing movie that both Dr. Dave and Sharon have watched and highly recommend.”Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive, but so straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?

Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.” More information: http://www.forksoverknives.com/synopsis/

THE CHINA STUDY BOOK
“In The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” and the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.”
http://www.thechinastudy.com/

UNPROCESSED – VEGAN RECIPE BOOK
When Sharon was transitioning her family from vegetarian to vegan, she really enjoyed the cookbook “Unprocessed” by Chef AJ. “Chef AJ has a unique ability to create healthy foods that taste great. Whether you want to lower your cholesterol, prevent or reverse many common lifestyle diseases, lose weight or just look and feel great, Chef AJ can show you how to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet in ways that are easy, delicious and fun.” More information about this great book: http://www.amazon.com/Unprocessed-achieve-vibrant-health-weight/dp/1456576097

EAT TO LIVE  AND SUPER IMMUNITY BOOKS by DR. FUHRMAN
Sharon was inspired and highly recommends Dr. Fuhrman’s book Eat to Live.

“The more nutrient-dense food you consume, the more you will be satisfied with fewer calories, and the less you will crave fat and high-calorie foods. If you are an adult diabetic, you will likely be insulin-free in no time. If you are on heart medication, your doctor may stop your prescription.”

“Dr. Fuhrman is the father of Nutritarian eating. His health (longevity) equation H = N/C, (healthy life expectancy is proportional to lifetime intake of micronutrient diversity and quantity per calorie) has interested scientists the world over. As an advocate of diets rich in a vast array of plant micronutrients per calorie, his ANDI scoring system (featured in Whole Foods Market), has directed millions of consumers to eat an anti-cancer diet-style.”
Learn more here about Dr. Fuhrman and his books: http://www.drfuhrman.com/ask/default.aspx

MILK ALTERNATIVES
Since Sharon and her family are vegan, they do not drink cow’s milk, So now, Sharon primarily consumes hemp milk and almond milk, You can mix 4 cups of water with 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds in a high power mixer like VitaMix. Sharon also makes almond milk from almond butter.

FOODS TO HELP WITH CANCER PREVENTION
Sharon has researched and studied many foods that have been proven to be preventative against cancer, such as:  Kale, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Bok Choy, Button Mushrooms, Onion, Garlic, Green Tea. You can get more info from http://nutritionfacts.org/about/

48 – Ways to Improve Your Life / Running / In the Car

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastDr. Dave and Yoko recorded this episode in their “car studio” while on the way to the Annapolis Ten Mile Race. It began by talking a bit about the upcoming race, but by the time it ended, they gave you a ton of great health and lifestyle tips as well as MUCH MORE! Learn about morning routines, meditation, race hydration and recovery and more.

10 YEARS AGO YOKO COULDN’T EVEN RUN 1 MILE!
Yoko remembers when she met Dave 10 years ago and she couldn’t even run one mile! They started Yoko from literally the couch to run her first race = the Annapolis 10 mile race! You start one step at a time, one minute at a time, one mile at a time. Just get out that door and get started even walking.

ANYONE FINISHING A RACE IS A TRUE WINNER!
It does not matter how fast your time is! If you finished that race, you are a runner and a winner! Dr. Dave has run year after year. He is not the fastest

MORNING ROUTINE
Every single morning Dr. Dave and Yoko have a morning routine. It may vary during the week or on the weekend or travelling, but they always have a routine. Dr. Dave makes sure he is up 2 hours before he actually has to go anywhere or do anything on a schedule.

One of his morning routines may look like: connecting with his pets (who may or may not have woken him up), meditate, exercise, a nice bath or shower, a cup of tea, a nice healthy breakfast.

MEDITATING IN THE MORNING
While Dr. Dave does daily meditation he focuses on his breathing and says a mantra to keep their mind relaxed. A common yoga mantra that he uses is = when you inhale “SAT” and when you exhale “NAM” and keep repeating.

There is tons of research to prove that people meditate all over the world and they are healthier and live longer! To learn more about meditation, take a look at this article: http://www.yogajournal.com/practice/2223

AVOIDING THE NEWS AND TELEVISION
Dr. Dave and Yoko have stopped watching television, and watching the news reports, and reading the newspaper. There is so much negative energy and stories that can really affect your mind, attitude, and spirit. Take a break from the news for a week or two and see how it changes your day and your life.

HYDRATION FOR LIFE 
You really need to make drinking water a focus of your life until it becomes an unconscious habit! One of our superfans and recent guests Melissa @DigitalGeekGirl fills up a jug of water at the start of the day and drinks from that all day long and drinks it until it is gone. No more counting glasses – just finish the jug no matter what or how! Read this article called 10 Life-Changing Reasons to Drink More Water: http://breakingmuscle.com/health-medicine/10-life-changing-reasons-to-drink-more-water

HYDRATION, ENERGY DRINKS, AND ELECTROLYTE DRINKS FOR RACES
Dr. Dave makes sure that a day or two before the race he really concentrates on drinking water and makes sure he has zero caffeine or alcohol too!

During races he takes Hammer Endurolyte Capsules or gel. Yoko likes the Japanese Pocari Sweat fizzy energy beverage that can be found world-wide.

Note: DURING a race only use what you have been used to using during your training. If you try new and strange things your body is not used to it; this could have bad reactions to your stomach or digestive system!

More info on Pocari Sweat:
http://www.pocarisweat.com.ph/about.aspx

POST-RACE RECOVERY
Continue to hydrate, still replace your electrolytes. Do not stop moving right away. Keep walking around and cool down. Also, Dr. Dave and Yoko take a nice hot bath and get a massage to get that built up lactic acid out of their systems.

JOIN DR. DAVE AND YOKO IN 2015 AT THE BAY TO BREAKERS RACE!
It starts at the San Francisco Bay and takes you through the city right to the Pacific Ocean. It is an amazing and fun 12K race that Dr. Dave and Yoko have done for years!

Then she decided to sign up for her first race.

PUSH THAT FAT OUT
Walking doesn’t do it for weight loss and stress loss. Walking the dog with a cup of coffee doesn’t push the fat and stress out of your body. Fat needs to be pushed out of your body. You need to run, skip rope, or rebound on mini or big trampoline. (this was studied by NASA and referenced in the book “Fat Flush” by Ann Louise Gittleman). The slowest run/jog is better than fat loss than the fastest walk. Many people can maintain their weight with walking, however, if you are on a mission for fat loss you need to run!

BENEFITS AND REWARDS OF CHANGE
You need to recognize the benefits of making a change and acknowledge those. You also need to reward yourself for accomplishing your goals in small and big ways. Maybe you get a calendar on your wall and give yourself a smiley face or star on each day you workout. Maybe after 10 workouts, you reward yourself with a nice pedicure. Maybe after 10 pounds, you get a new pair of jeans. Find your incentives and reward your good behavior.
 
SHE SIGNED UP FOR A 5K AND A MARATHON
Once Melissa could run 10 minutes straight, she signed up for TWO races: a 5k and a Marathon. The 5k was in 30 days and the Marathon was in one year. She always wanted to run a marathon and thought THIS is the time. I want to run a marathon before 40 years old! Well, she researched and looked around and the Detroit Motown Marathon was a year away and just days before her 40th birthday.
 
TRAINING FOR THAT MARATHON
Melissa followed one of the Runner’s World marathon training programs and ran when it said run. She also did weight training, rowing, fitness classes, and biking. Here are a variety of Marathon training programs and schedules: http://www.runnersworld.com/training/marathon-training-plans.
 
RUNNING HER FIRST MARATHON
Be sure to tune and and listen to Melissa and Dr. Dave talk through Melissa’s entire first marathon race and what she expected and what she was surprised by. There were many surprises along the way of finishing this journey of her lifelong goal of running her first marathon. She had just ended her year of separation with her husband and they decided to officially end it and divorce a few days before and just a few days after the race was her 40th birthday. “I needed to run this race for me, to close a chapter, and start a new chapter, start my 2nd half of my life, and a new me.” says Melissa.
 
FIGHT FOR YOU – YOU DESERVE IT!
You deserve an hour a day to make yourself a priority. “Choose your sweat. Sweat 60 minutes a day!” says Melissa. Choose what you like to do and that you will do for 60 minutes and work hard enough to sweat it up good. You can bike, rollerblade, run, take a class or switch it up! Find what kind of sweating makes you happy.
 
FIGHT! FIGHT FOR FITNESS, HEALTH, RELATIONSHIPS
“Fight for the relationship you want, Fight for the health you want, Fight for the fitness you want!” Do not give up! says Melissa. Do not suck it up. Do not give in. If you want date night, set it up, plan it, and grab your spouse and go! If you want to take that tennis class, do it! Your family will survive without you for an hour or two a week. Fight for that daily workout time and me time. You will be able to take care of your family and be a better partner if you have had me time and time to sweat. It will serve everyone better.

46 – Unhappy, Married, Fat, and Very Worried

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastOn today’s show Dr. Dave’s guest Melissa discusses her marriage, and what it did to her life. This episode contains some incredible lessons. Not for the faint of heart. Please listen carefully!

—> Call Dr. Dave on the NEW Phone Voicemail Hotline: 410-429-7190. <—

If you call into our voicemail hotline and we use your question on our show, you will get an *free* and autographed copy of my book: “Impress your world with your body in 7 days”. Leave us a question or comment. Please speak clearly because we may even use your question on one of our episodes of the show.

MELISSA – MOM OF 3, 39, MARRIED, FAT, AND SAD

You will want to tune into this episode! It is a life changer! There is a lot to learn from her story. Are you overweight? Are you in an unhappy relationship or marriage? Are you staying just for the kids? Listen to how Melissa’s life was dumped upside down one afternoon and her life was launched on path she did not expect. Listen how she turned she went from being over 200 pounds, crying every day, and was not living a happy or healthy life.

OCTOBER 2010  MELISSA’S INDUCED MIDLIFE CRISIS

“In October 2010 I found myself in the middle of an unexpected induced mid-life crisis. To me “midlife crisis” means that you cannot live your life another moment as it is. It must change. Sometimes it is your job, your relationship, or everything!”, says Melissa.

HAVE YOU TRIED EVERYTHING?

Dr. Dave has always said that being an unhappy circumstance will affect your entire life and health. You need to try everything to fix it of course, however, at some point you need to face that things may not change. You need to move forward in your life. You need to get unstuck. Sometimes you may need the assistance of a professional to help mitigate the situation and extraction. People are terrified of change and are more scared of the unknown than what they do know even if it is sad, bad, and horrible.

ONE YEAR TO FIND YOUR WAY BACK and JOY RISING

Melissa gave her husband of 14 years and partner of 17 years one year to find his way back to his family and marriage. Melissa sat there in the Oprah show audience as a live tweeter and blogger for a show called “Joy Rising”. She sat there thinking I am feel peace and calm, but I do not feel joy. “I felt stuck… one foot in the past…. on one foot in this intermediary area… not even one foot in the future.”, says Melissa.

STAYING FOR THE KIDS

I hear from so many people that they are “staying for the kids”.  This is a phrase that Melissa said to herself over and over during those last rough years in her marriage. Then at one point, when it all fell apart, she literally thought to herself, “What am I showing my children? A man that does not love me, does not care for me, does not spend time with me. A mom who is crying and sad. A mom who is not making choices for her food and body?” Melissa needed to leave FOR the kids. Melissa needed to show her kids that she deserved to be treated well and be respected and cared for, and to be a good example for her children. She has made her children so proud in so many ways you will hear on today’s show AND next week’s show. “We love this mom so much better! This mom is happy! This mom is fun! This mom is adventurous!” is what Melissa’s kids have said to her.

EMOTIONAL EATING

Is anyone out there an emotional eater? Do you cope with your pain by eating food to sooth yourself? Melissa was soothing her pain with food day in and day out that last year of marriage. “If you see someone overweight and fat, I say they are in pain. Find their pain and heal that. Then you can find their way back to health.” says Melissa. Melissa replaced her pain soothing and emotional eating with a pair of running shoes. She kept a pair at each door and sometimes went out more than once a day.

NO MATTER WHAT SIZE YOU ARE WEAR CLOTHING THAT FIT

“No matter what your size, wear clothing that fits!” says Melissa. No matter what size you are wear clothing that is nice, clean, and fit you properly. “Women, stop wearing big baggy clothing and huge tops that cover your butts! It makes you look bigger!!!” says Melissa.

FOOD, EXERCISE, AND DETERMINATION

“I attacked the food and exercise category the minute I moved into that condo. I was forced into some big changes and my life was turned upside down. So I took a look at everything and made even more changes that were in my control,” says Melissa.

FOOD

I started fresh with an empty pantry, empty cupboards, and empty fridge and freezer. I took this opportunity  to start fresh. There are only healthy foods in the cupboards and fridge. She had fresh fruits ready to go on the kitchen table, fresh cut veggies in the fridge, and great snacks and meals. There were only healthy food options for her and her kids. 90 days of this new program completely overhauled their health and energy levels. Can you do an entire food make-over in your home? Can you just take a big black garbage bag and throw out all the crap?

HEALTHY JUNK FOOD RULE

“We bake weekly as a family with all fresh healthy ingredients, we give away 1/2 to someone, we eat our portion that night, and they save one item for each school lunch that week.” says Melissa. They still enjoy baking, control the ingredients, and limit the quantity and portion.

FOOD HELPS YOU OR HARMS YOU

“You have a choice to consume food that helps you and nourishes you or takes away from you and harms you!” says Melissa. “Healthy eating is one of the most important things you can do for your life!” says Dr. Dave. You are nourished, energized, more vital, better skin and complexion.

CHEATING ON YOUR DIET

Some people in your life do not like change. “People put a lot of pressure on me to just cheat a little with this here and there. I had to tell those people the only cheating I am doing is to myself. I love you and your cake has nothing to do with that.” says Melissa. This is not a diet to follow until you lose some weight and then go back to crappy eating. This is way to live and  lifestyle!

 COME BACK FOR MORE MELISSA + DR. DAVE

Melissa and Dr. Dave had so much to talk about that Dr. Dave invited her back next week. They talked about the emotional side of making changes, the food and nutrition side of making changes, and next week they will talk about the physical side of making changes. This is another one not to be missed. Tune in!

45 – Happiness and Other Important Things in Life!

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastOn today’s show Dr. Dave visits an incredibly important topic – HAPPINESS. He goes fairly deep into how to achieve happiness in your life. Several other very important life changing subjects are discussed as well. Please listen very carefully to the entire episode!
 
 FOOD CHOICES
No matter where you are: a party, a cruise, a vacation, a work event – make healthy choices! Do not make exceptions and think you will make it up or fix it up later. There will always be “special occasions” like birthdays, work events, holidays, weekends, dinner with your friends, dinner at your friends. Do not roller coaster on and off “a diet”. This is not a DIET that is temporary. These are lifestyle choices that are permanent! Don’t “cheat” this once! You will only be cheating yourself and your health and it is just not worth it!
 
PEOPLE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE EVENT OR FOOD
Remember when you are on a vacation or cruise or a family event, that the PEOPLE are more important than the event or the food. It is about connecting with the people in your life. Do not focus on the buffet line or the food table. “Life goes really fast and spend time with the people you love,” says Dr. Dave.
 
EATING FOOD WHEN NOT HOME
It is possible to stick to your lifestyle and healthy choices while traveling and when going to events. If there are absolutely not any healthy choices or choices in your lifestyle plan, then don’t eat what they have. You are not going to die without one meal! Eat beforehand if you know and just focus on connecting with the people at the event. Or eat afterwards. Again, you can survive a couple hours without food. It is so much better to just drink some water or tea, and wait to eat healthy than fill up on crap at an event to be polite or because their are no good choices.
 
Dr. Dave and Yoko recently went on a cruise with their family and let the travel agent and cruise know ahead of time they were vegan and they had not a moment’s worry over their food. They had access to fantastic salads and fresh fruit and many other options. This is your life and your body. Do not eat anything out of obligation or eat bad food because that is all that is at the table. No one is going to arrest you for skipping the dessert table on the buffet line!
 
TAKE A LOOK AT THE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE
Do you need to make some changes? You need people in your lives that are filled with happiness and love. Are you around people in your life filled with negative energy or treat you poorly? If you can make the relationship better, try that first. Talk to them directly about how they are in your life and how it impacts you. You may need to even go to counseling if it is significant person in your life like a partner or spouse.
 
If you have tried everything to make it work and it is not getting better, you need to make a change. It could be a time-out, a separation, even a divorce. This is your life!
 
ARE YOU HAPPY IN YOUR JOB/CAREER?
Do you love what you are doing? You need to change something! If you don’t love what you are doing and your heart, mind, and gut will know even if you are denying it with your mind. This will manifest in your health and could result in disease and digestive problems. I have heard person and after person tell me about their stress and poor health from their careers. I have heard amazing fantastic transformation stories of people changing their entire careers and doing something that makes them happy. Makes them happy to go to work, makes them happy on Mondays and Wednesdays.
 
CHANGE – ACT NOW!
Do not be paralyzed by change. I know it can be scary. I know the familiar can be easier than the unknown. You need to take steps to make change happen now! Don’t set some random future date where you put it off. Take the knowledge and information you have now and have learned from this podcast, and do something now!
 
FORGIVENESS
“Never harbor hatred!” says Dr. Dave. You are causing yourself stress and pain. Negative energy is so harmful! Learn to forgive. You have to let it go. You need to move forward and not get stuck!
 
ARE YOU FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE?
“If  you spend more than you earn, your life will be filled with problems and stress!” says Dr. Dave. If you are making $65,000 a year you should not be spending $70-80,000 and putting things on credit cards or getting loans. You need to be living UNDER your means, not just at what you are making. If you keep spending what you make, life happens to tip you over to debt. If you have a house and car you cannot truly afford, then when you need a home repair or a car repair, you have to put it on a credit card.
 
So many people are making A LOT of money and living outside of and above their means. They are living a lie! You do not need that bigger more expensive house. You need to not have debt, have money in savings, and money in investments for your future and your retirement. Life the life you can truly afford.
 
HAPPINESS AND LOVE
“We all need happiness and love in our lives,” says Dr. Dave. Choose happiness! Make choices focused on happiness. “If you have happiness and love in your lives, good health will follow!”

44 – Superstar Guest Marla Rose – Part 2 – Your Questions

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastOn today’s show we are again honored to have superstar Marla Rose from veganstreet.com for part two. Whether you are a vegan, are aspiring to become one, have a tiny bit of curiosity, or have absolutely no desire, this episode is a VERY important one that could actually be life changing!  You should definitely give it a listen! Marla answers many of your questions!

Dr. Dave Madow asks special guest Marla: “I noticed you are coming up on your 20th anniversary of being a vegan Marla. What are some of the differences or what have you experienced over the past 2 decades?” 

Marla answered: We struggled with getting vegan options even at the local coffeehouse like having soy milk. Now, living in a big city like Chicago definitely made it easier overall than many other places people live. It was a struggle to find places to eat out or even get what you need to cook at home. It is so much easier today and so much more accepted. We are creating change now and more people are open to it and we have more access points and resources at our disposal with the internet to make this happen faster and better than ever.

QUESTION FROM LISTENER MISTY: “What changes happen physically once becoming vegan?”

ANSWER: Marla was vegetarian at age 15 and vegan at age 26, so she did not experience huge physical changes and transformation. Many people see amazing transformations. However, Marla did have really bad psoriasis as a teen. Once she went vegan it went away and never went back. She suspects it was the dairy in her diet as many other people have experienced.

QUESTION FROM CALLER JILL: “How do I  convince 3 teenagers to adapt to a vegan diet?”

ANSWER: Marla would treat a teen like any reasonable adult. She would start with educating them why you think it is a good idea. Dr. Dave recommended maybe having kids connect with the animal side of the picture. There is a strong movie called “Earthlings”. Now neither Marla or Dr. Dave have seen it and it is very disturbing and not for the faint of heart. But maybe the teens would want to see it.  See where they are on the issue and what are their thoughts. Listen to your teens. Dr. Dave says bring your kids to Marla’s VeganMania in Chicago in the fall – details here:  http://chicagoveganmania.com/.

QUESTION FROM CYNTHIA: “I have been vegetarian for 10 years and eat dairy and eggs. Isn’t that enough?”

ANSWER: Marla says that the drive for her veganism vs. vegetarianism is ethics of eating animals and animal products. Eggs and dairy do contribute to a variety of health concerns. You are also ingesting whatever hormones and antibiotics are fed to the animals that produce the milk and eggs. Also, do chickens and cows kept in humane conditions and are treated as disposable commodities. Marla shares some strong information about how these animals are treated and what drives her to be vegan.

QUESTION FROM DR. RICK: “What is the best way to discuss what people will be gaining being vegan?”

ANSWER:  You get all the fruits, all the vegetables, all the grains in wonderful abundance. You also get it completely guilt-free of any harm to animals! Actually many people who are vegans are exposed to far many more vegetables than meat eaters. You will try fruits and vegetables you have never heard of and/or never knew even existed!

QUESTION FROM DR. LAURIE: “I was vegan for short periods of time before like for a month and I ended up very week and tired.”

ANSWER: Marla says that when you initially cut out all the meats and dairy your body needs to adapt and will be detoxing all those chemicals and hormones. Also, many new vegans and old vegans rely heavily on grains, breads, and carbs right away which can slow you down. It is recommended to give it a good 90 day try and see how she feels at the end of 90 days. Also, maybe find a vegan support group that will support you, provide information, and answer your questions as you go along. Also, make a concentrated effort to get your daily required protein in your diet. You will not be able to function efficiently without proper levels of protein.

QUESTION FROM MANY LISTENERS: “Just where do you get your protein in a vegan diet???”

ANSWER:  Listen to the laughter of Marla and Dr. Dave talking about the non-vegans needing fiber in their diets! There are entire rows and aisles at stores devoted to fiber and fiber issues! Nuts, seeds, quinoa, green peas, nuts, nut butters, beans, chickpeas, tempeh, tofu, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and so much more! Here is a great article about great sources of vegan protein: http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.php.

CLOSING WITH MARLA

“Plug into your heart and what you know is right for you, future generations, and the planet.” says Marla.

43 – Superstar Guest Marla Rose Vegan

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastOn today’s show we are honored to have superstar Marla Rose from veganstreet.com. Whether you are a vegan, are aspiring to become one, have a tiny bit of curiosity, or have absolutely no desire, this episode is a VERY important one that could actually be life changing!  You should definitely give it a listen!

Vegetarianism and Veganism has very definite proven health benefits. It also kind, good, and right for the environment, the planet, and the animals.

GUEST MARLA ROSE OF VEGANSTREET.COM
We were thrilled and excited to have 20+ year vegan Marla Rose on the show today! Marla was a vegetarian since age 15 and then in college she got involved activism and feminism and this reinforced her lifestyle choice of vegetarianism. “Every day is profound blessing to be able to experience this and work on a social justice issue, so deep and wide-ranging,” says Marla. Learn more about Marla and veganism at her website: http://www.veganstreet.com.

VEGAN HEALTH BENEFITS
So many people have lost some real significant weight after being a vegan. Additionally, they have found such increased energy levels. Study after study proves people living a better healthier longer life as a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.

HUMANE FOR ANIMALS
There are so few examples of animals truly being treated humanely that are bound for being a part of someone’s meal. We do not need to eat animals to survive or even live a good life. So many people find their life and lifestyles and their connection to the planet so much better after changing to vegan. It creates such a compassionate view on life inside and out. Listen to Marla’s thoughts on treatment of animals on farms that people will end up consuming.

Extremely Important Tip – Your Fourth Quickie With Dr Dave – Workout in the Mornings!

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastYour fourth quickie with Dave! This is a short one where Dr. Dave passes on an important tip about working out. Please do not miss this one!

“Never in my life have I finished a run or a workout and was sorry that I did it. In fact, I was extremely happy that I got in and got it done!” says Dr. Dave. Morning is proven  the absolute best time for a workout. Get your workout done before life gets in the way. Don’t wait for your day to have space or time for a workout. You MAKE time for your workouts. Plan this in your calendar for the week and then plan the rest of your life around those workouts. You are important! Make yourself a priority.

Make it a goal to do the recommended Dr. Dave “Magic 4 Miles”. If you run 4 miles a day your entire life will change. Start where you are and even alternate jogging and walking. Keep at it until you are jogging the whole time. Then go for a goal to get it done in 13-15 minutes average per mile. Wherever you are start there. Strive for progress, not perfect. You will never regret the workout you DID do. You will always regret the workout you did NOT do!. Get out there and do it! I believe in you and know you can do this.

~Dave

 

CRUCIAL Life Advice – Your Third Quickie With Dr Dave – Are You Living Your Best Life?

Slice-Your-Age-PodcastYour third quickie with Dave! This is a quick one where Dr. Dave teaches you some CRUCIAL life advice. Please do not miss this one!

“Live the life you love and don’t be afraid to do things! Do not wait! Go for it! Life moves to fast and we do not know what tomorrow brings!’ says Dr. David Madow. If Dr. Dave had put off things in his life, he would not be happy living the life he is living now. You might be in a dead end relationship or job, but are not doing anything about it. The day to change this is Right Now! Too many of you are putting things off and are afraid of what is on the other side of if  and when that change takes place.

Make it better or make a change. What can you do TODAY to make it better or make a change in your life? Are you living your best life possible and enjoying every single day? Why can’t you take the risk? You can do it! It may not work out and you learn from that and try again in a different way. Don’t stick with things because they are comfortable. Change can be scary and uncomfortable, but this is how you grow and evolve and lead to a life of happiness and authenticity aligned with you are and meant to be.

You get one life to live and make it the best one you possibly can. Do things! Try things! Fail at things! Better to have tried than not tried at all. Stop living in fear of the unknown or in the different or uncomfortable.

~Dave
