Confused about carbohydrates? Well you are not alone and learning what good carbohydrates are is the key to a successful healthy diet.

To understand why carbs often get a bad rap, first, we need to be aware of the different types of carbohydrates.  

Why is this important?

Because carbohydrates are our body’s primary source of energy. If you eat healthy carbs, as part of a balanced diet that includes protein and fat, your body will function the way it should. 

If you consume unhealthy carbohydrates, you can develop serious health issues including diabetes, auto-immune disease, and obesity.

In today’s podcast, we break it down. Learn which foods are good carbohydrates and how they contribute to weight loss, normal blood sugar and energy.

We will also learn where all the bad carbohydrates are hidden and which foods to avoid.

Nathan Runkle is an American animal rights advocate. At the ripe old age of fifteen he founded Mercy For Animals

Reared on a farm in rural Ohio, Nathan has a deep connection with farmed animals. His advocacy and his organization is responsible for sparing 22 million animals from cages and mutilation, thanks to corporate policy victories. His organization is also responsible for freeing 31 million animals from cages annually, thanks to new laws promoted by Mercy For Animals. 

Nathan believes that a world in which all animals are treated with kindness and compassion is coming into view. 

Today, we listen to this man’s inspiring story and get his opinion on everything from lab-grown meat to how we can all help animals from inhumane treatment.  

Nathan just released a new book called “Mercy For Animals: One Man’s Quest To Inspire Compassion and Improve the Lives of Farm Animals.”

You can purchase Nathan's book here on Amazon.

New research suggests that when to eat a meal plays a significant role in predicting weight loss or gain.

I am not a big fan of counting calories on a plant-based diet because I believe a healthy vegan diet is a path to lifelong weight control.

But the idea of when to eat your calories could make sense for some people who haven't been able to lose weight on a plant-based diet or have problems sleeping.

Today I share with you a lot of research I have been doing on weight loss and weight gain, and it has been fascinating.

What I have discovered is that that there is a science behind when to eat to lose weight.

Have you ever noticed that you tend to feel energized and drowsy around the same times every day? This is your circadian rhythm at work. Your circadian rhythm is a 24-hour clock that is running in the background of your brain. It is also know as the sleep-wake cycle.

In the last 15 years, there's been a wealth of evidence suggesting that abnormal or impaired circadian rhythms can bring an increased risk for many illnesses including cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, obesity and even emotional dysregulation.

Find out when to eat your meals to maximize weight loss, sleep better and decrease your risk for chronic disease in this podcast.

There is a lot to learn and I hope you enjoy today's conversation.
