Juicing Q & A with Matt Stone

Juicing
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Ahoy, buckaroos- Rob here, emissary from the world wide web, letting you know about more happenings from Mattarino and 180D. Matt recently sat down (electronically) for a question and answer session with Rosie at the Natural Maven to talk about juicing.  Is it good? Is it bad? If you know Matt, you know nothing gets so perfunctory and simplified...

How We Get Fat

chrisfarley
No this is not a book review of Gary Taubes’s Why We Get Fat.  Rather, this is a post about the reality of how people pack on extra weight minus Taubes’s incorrect and shortsighted assessment of biochemistry. A question I get as often, or more often than any other, is “Well then, what does cause people to become fat?”  Believe it or not, this question involves more than just a one-word response,...

10 Inconveniences of a High Metabolism

snorkel
By Matt Stone Having a high metabolism doesn’t come without consequences.  Here are some of the common inconveniences one may notice with a significant rise in metabolic rate… 1)      Menstruation Life was good with a low metabolism.  No time of the month.  But then you raise that metabolism and uh oh, not again.  Freakin’ progesterone production goes up, LH and FSH regulate...

Reducing Serotonin Levels

bim_sunrise
I’m not a fan of exhaustive lists that are meant to cover absolutely every possible way that some miscellaneous biochemical, of which there are a bajillion, are affected by our diet and lifestyle.  Trying to simply research one of them recently, serotonin, has nearly turned my brain into scrambled eggs.  Actually, that’s a terrible metaphor as my brains probably look, taste, and have some...

The Sadder Side of Serotonin

SerotoninSun
Are you sad?  Depressed?  Tired?  Crave them evil #$%#ohydrates?  Well hell son you just need you some serotonin!  Serotonin makes you happy!  Whee!!! The research and cultural status quo on serotonin doesn’t make much sense, and is full of contradiction.  Strangely, everyone seems to be madly in love with serotonin (people even have tattoos celebrating it – I hope they don’t read...

Sarcopenia

best-of-sarcopenia_1
By Matt Stone I’ve been thinking a lot about aging lately.  My grandfather, age 87 and my last living grandparent, ain’t doin’ so hot.  And yes, he’s old.  He’s falling to pieces.  He’s going to eventually die.  I’m not fighting that, and tend to look at whether it happens now or several months or even years from now as pretty inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.  Sure, he’ll miss a...

Stalling the Aging Metabolism

old-man-5
My girlfriend’s daughter just turned 7.  We were eating some food at a restaurant the other day and I watched her eat 2 cheeseburgers, half an order of French fries, a small milkshake, and a few good sips of a soft drink.  I looked up all the nutrition data for her meal, and it totaled, by modest estimates, 1,200 calories.  She weighs a whopping 49 pounds.  That day she consumed over 2,500...

Managing Your Weight Set Point

WeightSetPoint
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Quick heads up folks- Matt recently offered a guest article for Tom Corson-Knowles on the bodyweight set point. It’s a nice introduction to the concept and has some ideas about how to impact it. Plus, the cast of Willow, the Swedish Bikini Team and Alf- oh my! It just went live over on Tom’s site, so head on over and check it out...

Why I Don’t Eat Pork

112bw
By Matt Stone In 2006, my natural contrarian tendencies getting the best of me, I decided that fat, not carbohydrates or protein, was the bestest thing ever.  So I embarked on a diet with roughly 70% of my calories coming from fat.  In all the world’s anti-fat hysteria, they must have missed what is truly the optimal human diet.  Or so I led myself to believe as I watched my abs pop out, my...

Intermittent Feasting, Vegas Style

BellagioBuffet
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer This past week, I had the chance to make a trip out to Las Vegas, and what better place than the buffet capital of the world to document my ongoing experiment in intermittent fasting/feasting. As some of you know, I’ve been working with Chief, learning his methods of health and body recomposition for the last several months.  While I...

Sodium – How to Tame Your Low-Salt Habit

salt
By Matt Stone The Mayo Clinic put out an article entitled “Sodium – How to Tame Your Salt Habit.”  I figured the “180 Degree Mayo Clinic” needed an article about the many powerful benefits of sodium, when you might need more salt, how much you might need, and some foolproof ways to get lots without taking in too much lifeless, depleting water with it. Before we begin, I must point...

Restless Leg Syndrome Breakthrough

yahara
Restless leg syndrome affects millions of people, and seems like a silly and strange diagnosis – almost like a make-believe or phony disorder just to sell more pills or something.  If you peruse the internet you will quickly find that the disorder isn’t understood at all.  The cause is generally unknown, and any theories about what causes it or will make it go away are fine examples of wild...

The McXperiment Results

Back Camera
As discussed in the first post on this topic, my girlfriend and I decided that it might be worth experimenting to see if her daughter, Emily, would have her fixation on McDonald’s relieved by a 3-day McBinge.  Like everything in life, it was both success and failure, with both positive and negative outcomes.  It no doubt provided some very intriguing and thought-provoking results to...

Rethinking Autism

autism
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer The topic of autism came up recently on the  Facebook page, and I thought back to an article I’d read several years ago, The Truth About Autism: Scientists Reconsider What They Think They Know. The radical idea at the time was that autism is not a dysfunction or disorder, but instead an expression of human diversity. And this doesn’t...

Nutrition Minutiae Got Ya Down?

ForestFortheTrees

Free eBook

dietrecovery
The email I get most often is one inquiring about the “free ebook.”  In October of 2011, the free ebook that I used to give away was revised, expanded into a full-length book, and released as Diet Recovery: Restoring Hormonal Health, Metabolism, Mood, and Your Relationship with Food.  There is also now a Diet Recovery 2. This book lays out all of the major concepts regarding the...
