Remember what it was like when you were 20 years old? Diet and exercise wasn't a thing. If you worked out for a few days or stopped eating cheese burgers for a week, you'd drop ten pounds.

We don't believe there's only one way to achieving the body you want. We do believe in creating a lifestyle that allows you to have the best of both worlds...eating delicious food and being healthy at the same time. It is possible. Just listen to our show and you'll see! If you have questions you'd like us to answer on our show or via email, feel free to contact Rob.

"The key component to success in the physical competition world and often to health and transcending disease states are all related to your digestion. How well you can assimilate and utilize the food that you're eating; no matter what it is and how well you can eliminate any waste that will prevent it from growing bad bacteria in the gut. That's the bottom line; you have to get your digestion figured out." - Wade Lightheart

On this week's episode of the Open Sky Fitness Podcast, we had 3-time All Natural National Bodybuilding Champion, Advisor to the American Anti-Cancer Institute, Director of Education at BiOptimizers Nutrition, Founder of the Prosperity & Health Alliance, and Enagic Master Trainer, Wade Lightheart, join us on the show. Wade is also a vegetarian and author of several best-selling books including Staying Alive in a Toxic World and The Wealthy Backpacker.

In this episode, Wade and I had an amazing discussion about how he came to be an All Natural National Bodybuilding Champion, how he dramatically transformed his health with meditation and becoming a vegetarian, plus all about optimizing your digestion with digestive enzymes and probiotics.

Specifically, you'll hear us discuss:

  • Life-changing events that led him to become interested in bodybuilding and exercise physiology.
  • How he discovered meditation and became a vegetarian bodybuilder.
  • Why natural bodybuilding essentially saved him from his party lifestyle.
  • His experience earning a spot to compete in the Mr. Universe Championships.
  • Whether or not a person can be a bodybuilder and be healthy at the same time.
  • What the journey was like to train as a vegetarian bodybuilder.
  • Why high quality cultured, digestive enzymes and probiotics are a great start for improving your gut health.

 

"We live in a culture that worships athletes and athletes have extremely high levels of fitness relative to their sport, but that doesn't necessarily that they're healthy. Fitness is a component of health, but it's not the total picture. So, as I discovered in the world of bodybuilding, you can be both fit and very unhealthy." - Wade Lightheart

Jay recently launched TRTRevolution.com and the TRT Revolution Podcast which promise to be the definitive resources for all things Testosterone, Anti-Aging and Life Optimization. Jay along with his mentor Jim Brown consult with aging men and women and soon will be offering a unique line of supplements (Optimized Life Nutrition) essential for living a hormonally balanced life.

Rob and Jay had a deep discussion about why men can experience a loss of the testosterone hormone, what are the symptoms, and how to replace the hormone with therapy. To prepare for this interview, Rob even took a blood work test, a Pre TRT Wellness Panel, to see where his hormones were at and how healthy he is.

CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK: THINK ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE AT IN YOUR LIFE

Life can get incredibly busy and not only are we trying to juggle everything going on in our lives, but sometimes other people's lives too. Friends, family members, and co-workers may all need us at one point in their lives to help them out. And it's great to help them out however and whenever you can, but are you paying enough attention to yourself?

This week, try to stop for a moment and take a close look at everything that is going on in your life. Your family, your career, and you goals. Are you spending enough time on what you want to accomplish? Maybe you don't spend enough time on you or if everything becomes too much, you just push everything aside to give yourself space and a moment to breathe.

Pay attention to everything that you have going on in your life and ask yourself if it's too much to handle. Maybe you have too much going on right now or too many goals that you're facing. If something is too much to handle, it's okay to back off and come back to it later when you're ready for it.

Likewise, what are some tips that you can share with all of us when you're juggling too much at once? Send us an email, voicemail, Facebook message, Twitter tweet etc. How do you handle stress and taking on different projects at once?

This week, Devon and I are talking about cell phones as well as other forms of technology such as microwaves and how they can affect our health. Since the use of cell phones and other electronic devices are still relevantly new, there isn’t a lot of concrete information out there, but there have been studies with results that both favor and warn against the use of cell phones.
 
In these studies that we looked at, none were conducted on children; only adults. However, it’s believed that children are the most susceptible to the harmful effects of radiation from cell phone and wifi use.
 
In this episode, you’ll discover:
  • How cell phone use can affect our health.
  • Why California and other states are issuing warnings about cell phone use and presenting new bills.
  • How cell phones and non-ionizing electromagnetic waves work and can affect the body.
  • How long it might take to see clear side effects.

Now that it’s the new year, we’re all coming out fresh with goals and ideas for ourselves and how we’re going to make this year great. We feel like we have it all.

But once we hit mid January, our fiery will and inspiration has been lost. Why is that so? How can we be so excited about a goal or idea and then it’s gone from our minds?

Health and wellness is a journey that can’t be completed in 2 weeks. There is no end and we have to constantly work towards bettering ourselves.

As you listen to this podcast, Rob shares his own struggles with finding himself on his health journey and he’s not done yet either. Discovering good nutrition and creating habits to exercise through out the week takes time and motivation.

We can’t give up on our health goals so easily. We need to discover our inner confidence if we want long-term results.

On this week's episode, Devon and I are discussing how friendships shape our lives and can either help or hurt our health because after all, we're a product of our social circle. Our past friends have helped create who we are today and our current friends will help develop us into the person that we will become tomorrow.

The best way to become the person you aim to be is to change your environment including the people that you spend the most time with. That doesn't mean you have to stop being friends with someone close to you, but you might want to re-evaluate that friendship and see if that person is either helping you or preventing you from reaching your goals.

In this episode, we'll go over:

  • The benefits of having friends
  • How friends impact your mental and physical health
  • Where to find new people to spend time with
  • How to cultivate a friendship with someone new

  • The health care industry today and why we’re currently on our own to prevent ourselves from getting sick.

Today's hot topic for this week's episode is adrenal fatigue. After a member of the Open Sky Fitness Facebook Group asked about it and how we can deal with it over the holidays.

The basic reason why we even experience adrenal fatigue is because we're all stressed out all the time. Stressed out by 8-10 hour jobs, raising families, being on our cell phones and constantly in communication with other people. Life used to be so much simpler when we didn't have so much stimulation from computers and cell phones.

Today we'll go over:

  • What adrenal fatigue really is and why we experience it.
  • Symptoms of adrenal fatigue
  • The science behind adrenal fatigue and what it has to do with our cortisol and sex hormone levels.
  • How light exposure including blue light from technology affects our cortisol levels.
  • Why hypothalamus pituitary adrenal access (HPA access) is actually a better name than adrenal fatigue.
  • How we can heal our minds and bodies through fitness, nutrition, and recovery

With Thanksgiving coming up this week and the rest of the year-end holidays well on their way, Devon and I are sharing our best tips on how to create a positive experience for yourself this holiday season.

When it's been awhile since we've been around our families, all of these different feelings of stress and anxiety can bubble up within ourselves. This can make it extremely difficult to be positive, eat healthy, and connect with who we are as a person.

All-American discus thrower, strength coach, author, and instructor, Dan John, shares why life, fitness, and success can be simple, but not easy. There is not immediate, over-night success that comes in the form of a pill. There is no secret to having it all. Rather, real results come from hard work, patience, and determination over the length of time.

Dan John has written for various publications such as T-Nation and Men's Fitness. He is the author of many books including Never Let Go, Mass Made Simple, Can You Go? and Now What?

Together, we had a fascinating conversation about fitness, nutrition, and living life with a plan.  I learned so much from talking to Dan and I hope you do too.

Devon and I were recently inspired by a friend of ours to talk about the importance of taking vacations for the sake of our health and relationships. After hearing from a friend that he hadn't taken a decent vacation in about 6 years and was experiencing anxiety attacks due to stressful events, we want to share with you all how you can take a well-deserved (short or long vacation), all of the awesome benefits, and why you shouldn't feel afraid to treat yourself to a little bit of TLC and R & R.

Leaving for vacation at least once a year is good, but a person's health can really be affected if they don't go on vacation for several years.

Creating Structure for Your Schedule

 

"As an entrepreneur or a stay-at home parent, nothing gets done unless you plan it so why should your health and fitness be any different? - Rob Dionne

 

On today's episode, Devon and I are tackling the big question:

How can you create a structure for your day when you work for yourself or have a crazy schedule?

When we were children, our entire day was planned for once from the moment we woke up to when we had bedtime. As adults, it can be difficult to follow a set routine.

From entrepreneurs to  stay-at-home parents to everyone else in between with crazy schedules, we're giving our top 11 tips on how to bring more structure to your life so that your health and fitness can improve and thrive. How can a structured lifestyle improve your day? By having a set plan, you can free up time so that you can focus on the important factors in your life.

Our 11 ways to create structure for a crazy schedule are:

  1. Getting 1 to 2 hours for yourself in the morning
  2. Deciding what your main priorities are
  3. Eat the frog: Complete your biggest task for the day
  4. Rest and recovery
  5. Drink more water
  6. Get enough hours of sleep
  7. Ask for help when you need it
  8. Cut some things loose and make space
  9. Planning  is everything
  10. Listen to your body
  11. Don't self-medicate with caffeine when you need a pick-me-up

 

If you ever need extra help to improve your lifestyle to make time for you and your health, you can always turn to Devon and I or join our Open Sky Fitness Podcast group to connect with other people who are in the same scenario as you.

BONUS! Get Rob's Open Sky Fitness Recipe at the end of this blog post!

 

Q&A with Yourself

To get started on creating your own structured schedule to focus on health and fitness, you have to get to know yourself a little bit better. Asking yourself the following questions can give you some perspective:

  • Where are you now?
  • Are you making healthy decisions for you and if so, where did you learn them?
  • Did you learn it by yourself or from your parents and observing their schedules?
  • Are you following a similar structure to what your parents have or are you changing it to match your own?

 

Focus on Health and Fitness

 

"It's been proven that if you work out in the morning, you can think more clearly for the rest of the day. Not only that, but it's really satisfying to know that you've done your exercise for the day." - Devon and Rob Dionne

 

This might be easier to do if you don't have any kids, but try to take the first 1-2 hours out of your day to focus on you. Use that time to prepare and make sure you have all that you need:

  • Have Breakfast
  • Pack Food
  • Meditation
  • Workout
  • Bring gym clothes for later

Don't start your day by putting out fires i.e. checking your phone,  sending emails, or wasting time on Facebook.

If you exercise in the morning, not only will it help energize you, but you'll also be able to get it out of the way before doing anything else. That in itself will  help you feel good about yourself . Next, you can focus on other important tasks at hand.

 

Setting Priorities

 

"How can you set a good example for your kids on how to take care of themselves if you can't even take care of yourself." - Devon Dionne

 

Get a better perspective on something by taking a break. Go out for a walk and take your mind off of things. Don't pressure yourself when you don't feel like you have enough time to really do what you need to do. Plan your day out to give yourself a break.

If you going to have a good priority, you have to ask yourself, "What you want and why do you want it? Why is it so important to you?"

 

"For mental clarity, sleep should be number one on your list." - Rob Dionne

 

The Open Sky Fitness Coffee

Start your day off on the right foot with some coffee that will last you all morning so that you don't feel like you need to keep drinking more and more of it to stay energized.

Each morning, I blend the following ingredients with a blender such as the Magic Bullet or Nutri Bullet.

Rob's Open Sky Fitness Coffee Recipe:

  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Cups Coffee

How Metabolism Works

 

"Your metabolism is designed to regulate your body weight. It's a really healthy design and overall, metabolism doesn't affect your weight loss or gain. It can, but it's not the biggest factor when it comes to weight loss or gain." - Devon Dionne

 

This week's episode is all about metabolism and how it affects our ability to lose weight. Many people believe that we can burn calories and get fit based on the old-fashioned energy in, energy out model. However, there's so much more to living a healthy lifestyle than just that and metabolism plays a huge part in it.

Each person has their own metabolism based on many factors:

  • Genetic makeup
  • Hormones
  • Sleep
  • Diet
  • Food processing of thermogenesis
  • Exercise
  • Stress
  • Gut bacteria

Metabolism Myths

General thoughts on metabolism: Weight loss = energy in - energy out

There are many metabolism myths out there such as:

  • "I think I have a broken metabolism."
  • "You can't change your metabolic rate."
  • "Eating at night slows down your metabolism."
  • "Low-calorie diets can jump start your metabolism."
  • "Your metabolism is fixed for life whether that's good or bad."

If you eat less and move more, you'll be fine, but why are you hitting a plateau if that's true? There are so many other factors involved in metabolism and weight loss or gain.

 

"This is the problem with getting hooked on counting calories. You have two people standing next to each other and they could be exactly the same weight, body type, height - everything! They could even consume the same amount of calories, but because of multiple different factors like gut bacteria or genetics, that will define how much calories they can actually absorb and utilize." - Rob Dionne

 

The Truth About

Resting Metabolic Rate

 

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) or resting metabolic rate (RMR) is how your body converts energy and food at rest.

The amount of calories that we absorb depends on what food we eat. If we eat whole foods that are unprocessed, we'll absorb less than if we were to eat processed foods.

The USDA is able to have a 20-25% range of amount of calories they put on the nutrition labels. So, it's easy to be way off on how much we're actually consuming every day. We could be eating 20% more or less than what's actually stated on the label.

Several factors can mess with our resting metabolic rate such as:

  • Body mass weight
  • Body composition: How much is fat, muscle, and bone plus your muscle requires more energy to stabilize and sustain.
  • Aging: As you age, you tend to lose muscle mass.
  • Gender: Men typically burn more than women.
  • Hormones: Thyroid, low testosterone, insulin & insulin resistance.
  • Caffeine and nicotine can increase RMR but only if you take them all day can it be bad for you. Anything that speeds up your heart rate will affect your metabolism, but it's not a healthy choice.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs - speed based drugs can increase metabolism. Can completely decrease the RMR and there can be other side effects.
  • Stress and negative feelings can affect RMR and cortisol levels

 

Increase Your Metabolic Rate

 

"When you eat protein, it takes your body 20-30% of the calories that you just consumed to digest the food. That's why it's so important to pay attention to the nutrition density of the foods that you're eating because your body will process whole-wheat bread differently than white, processed bread." - Rob Dionne

 

There are many different methods we can use to increase our metabolic rate:

  • Fitness
  • Gut bacteria
  • Nutrition and portion size
  • NEAT: Non- Exercise Activity Thermogensis
  • Sleep and relaxation
  • Socialize

Fitness and Building Muscle

Adding muscle can increase your rate for long-term because it changes your body composition. Muscle burns more than fat when the body is resting. So the more muscle mass you put on, the more muscle you'll burn.

Cardio helps to burn a lot of calories in the moment, but it doesn't affect the metabolic rate in the long-term. A ton of cardio can actually stress out the body by changing your cortisol levels which keeps fat on and it burns muscle mass. A little bit of cardio can be beneficial but too much causes issues for the long-term.

Spend a couple of days a week weight training or include it into your weekly circuit workout at the gym if you add some cardio. 

Create a Healthy Microbiome

Our gut bacteria is also important factor as far as our ability to digest food and absorb nutrients. Depending on the type and amount of gut bacteria that we have in our microbiomes, we can absorb more or less food.

Nutrition and Portion Sizes

When you lose a lot of weight, your metabolism slows down and could stay that way for a long time or for live. Rather than focusing on low-calorie diets and intense cardio training that will burn both fat AND muscle mass, focus on portion sizes and eating whole foods such as protein. Don't even pay attention to nutrition labels or calories.

Just focus on eating good portions of whole foods like meat, vegetables, fruit, and healthy grains. The more whole the food is, the more energy your body needs to consume and process the food.

Non- Exercise Activity Thermogensis

Non- Exercise Activity Thermogensis aka NEAT happens if you're fidgety and need to stand all day, pace, or walk around a lot all day because you simply can't stay still. Do you walk around a lot for work? Different jobs can affect this. If you're walking around all day, you're going to burn more calories compared to someone who has a desk job or sits on the couch all day.

If you sit all day at a desk job, then you're not able to access your NEAT. Get up to go for a walk a couple of times a day or get a stand-up desk. 

Relax and Socialize

Sleep is recovery and healing for the body. It's better to sleep more than only sleep for 4 hours and get up early to go workout. Make sure you're giving your body and mind plenty of rest throughout the week.

On the other hand, sociliazing can also boost your body as well as positive thinking. In return, this can help your metabolism as well. Go spend time with friends and family to further help you unwind and relax. Pets like a dog can also be great because then you'll have something to look after and take care of 24/7 who'll give you attention in return.
