We are super proud of having come this far, and also madly thankful to all our listeners for their constant support. This show has had 1.1 million downloads to date, so knowing how many people love it makes all the effort we put in totally worth it. In celebration of such an epic moment, it seemed fitting to bring you a tribute episode today, a show which brings together some of the most memorable and insightful conversations we have had so far. Joining us, you will get a chance to hear the best of our interviews with Dr. Ron Ehrlich, Beth Lipton, Erwan Le Corre, Dr. Dom D’Agostino, Cal Newport, and Stephen Le.

Our two special guests in today’s episode are Danny and Maura Vega who run the Fat Fueled Family, which is their personal brand that does coaching work around nutrition, fitness, parenting, education, and mindset. One of the main things that we talk about in the interview is Danny and Maura’s journey with varying diets over the years, and how they have tweaked and personalized different ones to find something that works. Maura started out as a vegetarian and the couple talk about how they progressed through stages of paleo, whole foods, keto, meat-based paleo, and a lower carb whole foods approach too.

Another big topic in this episode and one which is quite unusual for the show is Danny and Maura’s approach to parenting. We talk about how our guests’ fluctuating positions on diets trickled down into those of their kids and about how ultimately the children were given the power to make their own choices about food. The whole philosophy of allowing kids to make their own decisions is a big principle in Danny and Maura’s approach to parenting more broadly in fact. We speak about how conventional schooling and disciplinarian practices don't fly with our guests, and how they are doing things differently to instill a love of learning and a sense of agency in their offspring. Anybody interested in the varying versions of keto and paleo, or about non-conventional parenting practices would love this edition of the show.

Our guest on the show today is Annette Verpillot, Canadian posturologist and founder of Posturepro. Annette is here to blow our minds about the causes of bad posture and give us some simple ways to address them. Posture has been defined as the maintenance of correct tension between flexors and extensors against the pull of gravity. Her perspective on how this balance is maintained looks a lot further than sitting upright though. According to Annette, the brain is actually the main cause of poor posture. It often finds itself processing a faulty sensory input and then responding by misdirecting the muscles. From the moment we are born, there might be imbalances in how we crawl or position our tongues. These issues go on to generate painful knock-on effects that most people live their whole lives with. Even our eyes or the way we sleep could cause improper movements that have posture-related effects. Luckily, many of these problems are reversible though. We get into all of this and more with Annette today in what proves to be a highly information-packed episode. Make sure you grab a pen before tuning in.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Understanding posture as a bodily ‘global awareness’ and the body’s response to gravity.
  • A description of optimal posture and how to know when it has not been achieved.
  • How to use signals given by pain, bodily planar views, and clothing to diagnose bad posture.
  • Whether athletes or sedentary folks experience pain from posture more acutely.
  • Annette’s ideas about the brain being the first cause of poor posture.
  • Links between DNA-based movement patterns and many bodily systems.
  • How the brain, posture, and biomechanics are connected.
  • Causes for bad posture in young children such as crawling wrong or walking too early.
  • The centrality of the tongue in causing teeth, speech, and posture problems.
  • Correct tongue posture and how to maintain it as an adult using red dots and a gum guard.
  • Connections between sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, posture, and calmness.
  • How eye health, and specifically focus-related issues, can affect perception and posture.
  • Eye exercises for rectifying diverging or hypo-converging eyes.
  • The error in perceiving the body as segmented in light of the centrality of the brain.
  • A promising realization that many bodily ailments taken as incurable can actually be cured.
  • Details about Annette’s consultation process involving few visits and simple exercises.
  • The role feet play in posture, and tools Annette uses to cure flat feet such as insoles.
  • Effects of jaw clenching and poorly tracking eyes on the body during REM sleep.
  • Tips from Annette for pain sufferers: do her TED Talk eye exercises and stimulate your feet.

“The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons defines posture as being the right amount of tension between flexors and extensors, which basically allows us as human to be able to stand upright and be able to fight gravity efficiently.” — @posture_pro [0:06:44.3]

“A brain imbalance leads to a postural imbalance. A postural imbalance creates a muscular imbalance, and this in turn creates biomechanical constraints. You cannot have this problem without having in conjunction a digestive, or even immune system problem.” — @posture_pro [0:20:31.1]

“We live in an era where we've cut the body into different parts and then we've created professions to address these specific pieces. We've neglected the fact that the body is a whole.” — @posture_pro [0:38:56.5]

Joining us on this week’s episode is Sabrina Wieser, German-born but New York-based marathon runner and coach who is known online as Running Brina. Growing up in a small hometown meant that Sabrina had never considered running as an option before moving to The States. New York’s flourishing running culture captured her imagination though, and she ended up falling in love with the sport. On top of being a sub-four marathoner with a massive online following, Sabrina is also very serious about lifting.

We are lucky to have her on the show today to talk about - you guessed it - all things running and gymming! She lets us in on how she decided to take both sports so seriously in the first place, and you'll hear about all the dietary and workout logistics involved in making such an aim sustainable. Sabrina tells us about the marathons she has completed across the world, her training community in NYC, her ultra high carb diet, favorite running spots, and the city as a network of bridges, hills, and loops. We also spend a bit of time speaking about her quite unintentional trajectory into being a social media personality, her love of her day job, and why a social media-based career is not for her, even though it sometimes feels like a job anyway. Sabrina is an inspiration and her down to earth attitude about the value of sticking to a goal is infectious, so tune in for a great interview with an incredible human being.

  • Sabrina’s relationship and eventual obsession with running after moving to NYC.
  • Reasons why Sabrina didn’t run much in Germany due to the size of her hometown.
  • Training, conditions, and how Sabrina ran two sub-four marathons in Berlin and New York.
  • An interesting detail about Sabrina: that she lifts in addition to being a serious runner.
  • Reasons Sabrina began gymming: she believed losing weight equated to running faster.
  • What went into the diets and schedules enabling Sabrina to run and gym simultaneously.
  • Distance preferences and the pros and cons of running as well as gymming.
  • Sabrina’s running community and how she feels running is a form of meditation.
  • Eating schedules, food obsessions, and how Sabrina found her perfect diet.
  • Recovery practices such as getting good sleep, stretching, and ‘recovery runs’.
  • How Sabrina got so huge on Instagram and her thoughts on social as a career.
  • In-depth descriptions of the heavy carb-loaded meals Sabrina eats before races.
  • The horrors of using gels to keep carbs up during races.
  • Plans for running longer races but not ones involving nine loops around Central Park.
  • Why hill training is great on treadmills but running is generally better outdoors.
  • Sabrina’s favorite running spots in NYC and the upcoming races she has planned.
  • The joy of using running as a way of exploring new places.

 

Tweetables:

“What I had to figure out was really, ‘Okay. When I’m running, let’s say, five times a week, when do I go to the gym and train legs?’” — @runningbrina [0:17:24.4]

“A runner doesn’t have to look a certain way. They come in all shapes and sizes, ages, and paces, and that’s really the place where I feel most comfortable.” — @runningbrina [0:22:20.1]

“I went to the Dominican Republic with some of my friends who were born there. They took us to Santo Domingo and we ran the Santo Domingo Half. That’s really what we did. We explored the city running. It was amazing.” — @runningbrina [0:54:05.1]
