180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

Stu: This week we welcome Stig Severinsen to the show. He is a Danish freediver. He is a four-time world freediving champion and holder of multiple Guinness World Records. He wrote Træk Vejret – mere energi, mindre stress (2009), published in English in 2010 as Breatheology – The Art of Conscious Breathing.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • How can we improve performance with just our breath?
  • Why do most of us panic to breathe after 15 seconds underwater?
  • Can our breathing patterns improve the way we sleep?
  • I’ve heard you talk about being ‘relaxed in an instance’, how can we achieve this?

 This week I'm excited to welcome an old friend, Stig Severinsen. Stig is a world free diving champion. He holds multiple Guinness World Records for his aquatic exploits and he's an expert, no surprise, on the art of conscious breathing. In this episode we discuss how he's mastered the art of breathing into a practice that allows us to perform better every single day both physically and mentally and how we can become relaxed in an instant, so great technique. I tried it. It works surprisingly well. He's a great guy. His world record attempt will astound you, so please dial, have a listen. Enough rambling from me. Let's get into the show.

Hey guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Stig Severinsen to the show. Good morning, Stig.

Stig

00:01:32 Good morning, sir, and thank you very much.

Stu

00:01:34 Thank you so much for joining us. I think first up before we get into the juicy questions, I would love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about who you are and what you do.

Stig

00:01:46 Well, I'm a very curious person by nature, so to speak. I always loved animals, biology. So even before you got into books and all that, I loved to study nature and catch animals and observe them. So I was kind of born to become a biologist, which I then did 20, 25 odd years later. And then I went into ... Did a PhD study in medicine and so forth, went into more scientific work. But I've always been very curious, and I loved to understand more about the connection between animals, between organs. Now of course with human beings, the organs, the brain, our inner organs, so how can we optimize our health and our performance, sports basically? And how can we use then, what is my big mission in life, breathing techniques to alter to the state of mind? For example, go into the state of flow, into the zone as it's also called. How can we be in a work flow and in a more happy place in life in general? And doing most of that from breathing connected with, of course, positive psychology and the theory of flow.

Stu: This week we welcome Thomas DeLauer. He is an American celebrity trainer, entrepreneur and an author, known for his writings on inflammation inside of the human body. His fitness journey started when he was 12, while studying art history in Italy. After seeing fitness models on magazine covers, Thomas became interested in creating a muscular physique of his own. He quickly developed a passion for exercising.

During his early 20s, Thomas took some time away from the gym to focus on his career as an entrepreneur. During that time, he developed some unhealthy habits and became overweight. He realized he needed to get back into the gym, so he spent several months training hard to get back into shape.

After several months of hard work, Thomas got his old physique back and decided to start a new business that would compliment his love for fitness, so Thomas became a personal trainer. Ever since he made the switch to fitness, he went on to grow his name successfully, and help clients around the world transform their lifestyles.

Questions asked in the episode

Are carbs the enemy or can we use them to our advantage for optimizing health?
Do you think keto is the ‘magic pill’ for weight loss?
- What are your thoughts on ‘looking fit’ vs ‘being healthy’?
- What do you do to ensure that you get the best night’s sleep?
 
 
 Stu

Okay, back to the show. This week I am excited to welcome Thomas DeLauer. Now Thomas is an expert in the world of chronic inflammation. He’s a pioneer in personal transformation. He’s got a great story himself. He’s a host of a very successful and hugely educational YouTube channel as well. So in this episode, this week we discuss the many faces of inflammation. How it’s probably sabotaging your health goals. We discuss looking fit versus being healthy and whether the ketogenic diet is right for you.

So Thomas is a great guy, hugely knowledgeable, and I’m really excited to be able to share this info with you today. Anyway, enough rambling for me. Let’s get back to the show.
[00:01:30] Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Thomas Delauer to the show today. Good morning Thomas. How are you?

Thomas

What is going on? Thanks for having me.

Stu

Good stuff. So look, first up Thomas, for everybody out there, specifically over here as well, that may not be familiar with what you do, I’d love for you to just tell us a little bit about yourself. Why you do what you do as well.

Thomas

Yeah. I’ll give you kind of the 30 second elevator pitch here.

Stu

Great.

Thomas

[00:02:30] So a lot of people that do know me, know me probably from YouTube and Facebook. Just from the plethora of videos I put out there but my main claim to fame was my transformation. I was 280 pounds and working kind of in a corporate healthcare environment. Very unhappy person. Very unhealthy person. I was focused on money and focused on business and focused on career. So I had a big transformation in my life. Now I’m 180 pounds. Been on covers of multiple magazines, T.V., everything like that, so in all harnessing the power of the Ketogenic diet, fasting, and really understanding inflammation. And working closely with a lot of physicians over my career, cause I was in the health care industry. I owned an ancillary lab services company.

So that was really my claim to fame. Harnessing the power of all these doctors that I worked around and utilizing it to really transform my life. Then I realized that I had a gift for articulating more complex scientific subjects and articulating health and physiology and really breaking it down for people. That’s what I do now. I create lots of videos for a living and fortunately help lots of people, or so I think I do.

[00:00:30] Hey, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions. It's here that we connect with the world's best experts in health, wellness and human performance in an attempt to cut through the confusion around what it takes to achieve a long lasting health. Before we get into the show today, you might not know that we make products too. That's right. We're into whole food nutrition, have a range of super foods and natural supplements to help support your day. If you're curious, you want to find out more, jump over to 180nutrition.com.au and take a look. Okay. Back to the show.

[00:01:00] This week I am super excited to welcome Brad Davidson. Now Brad is an author, a performance coach, speaker and presenter and is an expert on the topic of metabolism. Brad wrote his bestselling book "Stark Naked 21-Day Metabolic Reset," which has been the topic of conversation around our office for a while. Now he's a super nice guy. We had a lot of fun in this episode and discussed among many things how so many of us get it wrong when thinking about diet and exercise and how doing less and eating more carbs could lead to better health. Now I guarantee you'll get something out of this interview. I had a blast. Without further ado, let's get into the show.

Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Brad Davidson to the show. Good morning, Brad. How are you?

Brad

Hey. I'm doing great. Thank you. So excited to be on this.

Stu

[00:02:00] We've just been inundated with emails and requests from our audience over here in Australia, they're talking about "The Stark Naked 21-Day Metabolic Reset" book that seems to be causing a little bit of a stir over here as well. I dug deep and just had a little look what's it's all about, who's this about and realized that you really got a really good story to tell. From your story, you've radically changed the way you do things and now you're helping a whole heap of people. I would love, Brad, if you could perhaps just tell us a little bit about yourself, who you are, what you do and perhaps why you do it just to kick start.

Brad

[00:02:30] Yeah. Awesome. First off, I'm a husband, father of three, got my hands full. I'm a speaker now. I travel around the United States, Canada, get international a little bit here and there. Focused on the metabolism. I'm a big fan of energy. That's my thing. I learned early on at 33 that if you lack energy, you lack life. It was interesting because my life, fitness and obsession with extreme fitness and extreme nutrition, I mean just wiped me up. Talk about a curve ball in life. I was obsessed on that. I love to work with people that are burned out, tired, have roadblocks in life. Just kind of lost that zest for life.

[00:03:00] I love to just restart that. I'm a big fan of helping people live a more fulfilled life is the big goal now.
