This week welcome to the show Patricia Daly. She is a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist (BA Hons, dipNT, mBANT, mNTOI) based in Dublin, Ireland. Following her cancer diagnosis, she left her corporate career and started studying nutrition, specialising in the area of Integrative Cancer Care. As a Swiss native, she regularly attends training courses in Switzerland/ Germany, including at the renowned Tumor Biology Center in Freiburg, Germany.
Questions we ask in this episode:
This week, we are doing it with the fantastic Patricia Daly. This was a topic I was very excited to get into. I don’t want to give away too much for the show, because Patricia’s going to go into in great detail. In a nutshell, she was diagnosed with eye cancer at the age of 28, I think; correct me if I’m wrong, I apologize in advance.
[00:01:00] Essentially, she felt she was exercising, doing all the right things anyway, and it came as quite a surprise to her. Then after that, she started to take power into her own hands, essentially. Then started adjusting her diet; was then re-diagnosed again after two more years, and the cancer had come back more aggressively. She’s clearly a very strong-willed person, and she continued to research and investigate cancer. She’s doing remarkably well and she now shares her journey and story with you.
[00:01:30] You can check out her website, patriciadaly.com, where she’s got a heap of information there. She’s also got a brand new book out called The Ketogenic Kitchen, which is fantastic and I highly recommend you checking it out … from a dietary perspective anyway.
[00:02:00] We get into this fascinating journey, what’s she’s learned, how she’s changed her life. In fact, and how we can apply it to ourselves as well. I have no doubt you are going to enjoy today’s show. As always, if you’re listening to this through us iTunes, just hit that subscribe button, five star us.

[00:02:30] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook as always. Hey, Stu.
Our fantastic guest today is Patricia Daly. Patricia, welcome to the show.
Patricia: Yeah, hi. It’s brilliant to be here. I’m delighted to be asked to come on your show, it’s great.
[00:03:00] Look, I’m very excited; I’m very excited about your show and your own personal journey and story. I just believe it’s going to inspire and help so many others, because it’s such a fascinating topic as well. Before we get into that, Patricia, I’m going to ask you a quick question. That was basically, “If somebody stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?”
I would say I’m a nutritional therapist. That’s usually sort of the most neutral form. If I absolutely don’t want to talk about … That’s the thing, as soon as you say you’re a nutritional therapist, people just jump on it and they actually want advice on what to have for breakfast.

An in-betweener episode. You ask the questions and we chat about them on the show.
Got a question you want Guy & Stu to cover on the show? Email email@example.com
Topics covered this week:
I train at a very high intensity (crossfit) twice a day, I eat very clean (Paleo) I've lost a few kilos over time I had a dexter scan & im 10% body fat with really strong bone density so I'm really happy with my condition but would like to put on a few kilos but my health is so important I'm very strict so can't do it by rubbish food, I do keep Greek yogurt & cheese in my diet just to keep some weight on, can I eat a lot more clean food to help with this with out it being harmful to my health is there a supplement u can suggest I'm taking Whey at the moment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated thank u so much.
Hey guys! To quickly introduce myself, i am a 19 year old, living in the Western Suburbs of Victoria, Australia. I am an avid runner, usually running around 90km a week, with the addition of indispensable gym sessions (twice a week). In addition I am currently studying a Bachelor of exercise science, towards the pursuit of a Physiotherapy career, accompanied by a major interest in the overall wellbeing of an individual, cognitively and nutritionally. With all that saying, I was hoping you guys could advise me on some of your \"non-negotiable\'s\" which you deem absolute paramount, or at least helpful to a daily life. Ranging from the use of small nutritional tips (ie. ACV with lemon) to practising the use of visualisation (and how so). I really do believe the overall wellbeing of an individual is being bypassed by many today, and i really want to start ensuring i am ticking as many boxes as possible in order to fulfil my potential, and simply live a stress free, happy life. Thank you! any advice would be greatly appreciated, with that in mind; i also listen to your podcasts weekly on my way to uni! love them so keep it up! Conor :)

This week welcome to the show Dr. Kieron Rooney. He is a researcher in Metabolic Biochemistry from University of Sydney. Kieron’s research portfolio has included both human and small animal studies investigating the role of diet and physical activity on parameters of fuel storage and utilisation as they pertain to dysregulated metabolic states such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Kieron is a fun, down to earth guy who gives us an incite to what is going in the world of nutritional study from an academic perspective. So if you are wondering why there could be so much disagreement out there on the world of nutrition, then watch this as Kieron sheds some light on what’s really going on.
Questions we ask in the episode
Today, we’re cutting through the confusion and connecting with a seriously global health and wellness leader and his name is Dr. Kieron Rooney. We welcome him back to the show today to discuss another fantastic topic which is fat adaption and oxidization because Kieron has actually been putting a study together and he’s actively doing it at the moment, which in a nutshell, he’s going to be wanting to know how we can best utilize fat to be burnt through exercise.
[00:01:00] We were very happy to get Kieron on today. We’ll get into all sorts of topics including recovery, exercise intensity, where does fat adaptation sit within all of it including low carb, building muscle mass. It’s all in there and it was a fascinating journey. Now, Kieron has a wealth of knowledge and I would definitely say you probably need to listen to this podcast a couple of times to truly grasp some of the concept Kieron is talking about. If you do get it, it will play a big role in the way you actually think about your training, your timing and the foods you eat as well moving forward, which is fantastic.
[00:01:30] Now, Kieron as well is actively looking for volunteers in Sydney as we speak. If you do volunteer your time, you’re going to require about three hours and from it, you’re going to get a free health assessment and they’re going to do some fitness test on you as well and even take some blood markets so then they can use this as part of a big study Kieron is doing in terms of how well you’re actually utilizing fat in the body as fuel while exercising.
[00:02:00] If you are keen to do that, you can drop Kieron an email, so it’s firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s email@example.com. What you can do is well, just do a Google search for him. You can come back to our website, type in Kieron, this will come up. All the information is going to be there for you so if that’s something you’re interested in, I highly recommend you check it out. I’m going to participate in January myself. Without further ado, let’s get onto the show. Enjoy. Hi. This is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stu as always. Hey Stu. Good morning.
Hello mate. Good morning.
[00:02:30] Our fantastic guest today who we welcome back to the show is Dr. Kieron Rooney. Kieron, welcome back mate.
Good morning. Thanks Guy, thanks Stu. Glad to be here.
Oh man, looking forward to it. The last episode became very, very popular and looking forward to the pearls of wisdom you’re going to share with us today for us and our listeners as well. Just to kick-start the show buddy and the fact that some people might not have listened to the last show, so we’re keeping it to our shoulder, but if someone stopped you in the middle of the street and said, “What do you do for a living mate?” what would you say?
I guess I should start with what I get paid to do which is I’m an academic at the University of Sydney and there, I am a course director for the Bachelor of Exercise, Physiology degree. I do research into sugar metabolism. At the moment, we’re looking at sugar withdrawal. That’s our aim for the next three years but also sugar regulation from a public health perspective as well.

This week welcome to the show Katy Bowman. She is a biomechanist, movement ecologist and author of books on natural movement, human development and diseases of captivity. In this show, she introduces a new concept called movement-based lifestyle. It is one that keeps all of you moving—from your arms and legs to your microbiome—gives you large doses of “Vitamin Nature,” and “Vitamin Community.” It is the addition of movement back into life.
Katy Bowman, M.S. has earned an international reputation for achieving unprecedented results in reducing pain, increasing bone density, improving metabolic health, and solving pelvic floor mysteries. She is the founder and director of the Restorative Exercise Institute, a large organization and online training program that teaches the biomechanical model of preventative medicine to health professionals and laypeople worldwide. The author of Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief: The New Science of Healthy Feet (2011), Alignment Matters: The First Five Years of Katy Says (2013), and Move Your DNA (coming Fall, 2014), Katy’s writing explore the relationship between cultural habits, movement, and disease. She is the creator and talent of the Aligned and Well DVD series and blogs regularly at Katy Says.
Questions we ask in this episode:
This week we're doing it with the awesome Katie Bowman. Now, if you're not familiar with Katie, she is a Bio-mechanist, by training, and she is a serious wealth of information. An awesome lady, and a very passionate, and I thoroughly enjoyed this interview today. She is the author of 7 books and we got her on the podcast today to chat about a new book, "Movement Matters," and I will say this much about the interview, it has really continued to get me thinking about how I spend my day, and essentially on whether I'm moving or not, you know, and obviously, you know, I'm here now from a stand up desk. That's what I'm doing, recording this from, but what Katie was really stressing and getting across today is to actually look at the way we're actually not moving at all and stillness.
[00:01:30] Me in the standing desk, yes it is a solution from sitting down, but I can still remain still standing, which might not necessarily be helping the cause, and that's just got me thinking about that after the podcast anyway. I am going to be looking at Katie's work much more closely and how I bring more movement into my day. It's one thing I'm very passionate about, because ultimately what Katie will explain today is movement and exercise are 2 different things from a technical standpoint too.
[00:02:30] We've got some phenomenal guests lined up over the next 2 months as well, which I'm very excited about, but ultimately as well we want to make sure that we're providing in value and content for you guys to listen to, as well as myself, cause you know, there's nothing that pleases me more than being able to reach out to some of these people and get them all, and be able to spend an hour with them and chat to them, and pick their brains really, and share across the channels.
[00:03:00] Yeah, please let us know if there is anyone in particular that ... Or the type of content we do, and cause we're exploring all avenues, because you might know I'm very passionate about meditation, but we're bringing in movement, and then, you know, mindset and obviously the health aspects as well. Yeah, let us know from that and of course, if you listen to this on a regular basis and you're not subscribed to our iTunes channel, we'd love it if you are. Just hit the subscribe button. 5 star it, if you think we're worth it. It really just helps rankings.
[00:03:30] I ask every week. I'll continue to ask, purely because it just helps drive this message out there more and more, and leave an honest review. We read them all. We do read them out now and then on the podcast. I'm not set up for it now. I completely forgot, because I was going to read one out, but I'll do it in the next episode. Anyway, let's go over to Katie Bowman, and all your support is greatly appreciated guys. Enjoy.
Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stewart Cook. Hey Stewart?
Our lovely guest today is Katie Bowman. Katie welcome to the show.
Hey, thanks for having me.
[00:04:00] Fantastic. You know it's interesting Katie. Your name kept coming up on our podcast, sort of over the last 6 to 9 months, with different interviews, and I thought, "Wow. I've got to check this Katie out," and I looked on to your website, and I saw, "A day in the life of Katie Bowman," this great big blog post, and I thought that was absolutely fantastic, so I was hooked from that point on, and then obviously researched you, and you've currently come on today, so yeah, appreciate it mate. Thank you.
Oh very well.
[00:04:30] The first question is, just to ... Because I'm pretty sure we'll be exposing you to a new audience as well, if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?
Well in one word I'm a Bio-mechanist, you know, career wise I'm a Bio-mechanist, but then that word usually requires lots of other words to explain what it is, but it's someone who studies the mechanical nature of living phenomenon.
Anything that's living Bio, so whether it's plants or animals or all of it together and mechanics, Newtonian Physics, pressure, forces, friction, but what are the mechanics of living systems, you know, living systems have rules, and everything living falls under the laws of the physical universe and what does that mean for how they work. That's what a Biomechanist is interested in, and then I personally studied human mechanics, you know, was my university training.
