Joe Rogan Experience #1120 – Ben Greenfield

Notes chronologically:

  • 35 Mins: Traumatic brain injury (Ketones, DHA, hyperbaric O2, stem cells, PEMF)
  • 40 Mins: Fasting for stem cell production (~16 hours is where it kicks in).
  • 44:50 Mins: Protein cycling (meatless Monday, fish/eggs only meats).Mark Sisson talks very briefly about protein cycling here.
    From ‘The Primal Blueprint’:

    “As you learned already, you need an average of 0.7 to one gram of protein per pound (.33 to .5 grams per kilo) of lean body weight per day to repair, build, and/or maintain lean muscle mass effectively and to adequately support numerous other metabolic functions dependent upon dietary protein”Lentils have become a really nice dish since starting this meatless day thing.. I was all over the shop going by numbers only to try to work out macronutrients – the importance of being attuned to the body is key, which is difficult when there’s a bunch of noise and you can’t hear the signal (enter #GutRight).

  • 59 Mins: Cooking Steak perfectly.
  • 1:13 Mins: Shouldn’t take vitamin E/C post workout
  • 1:14 Mins: Cold immersion post workout to lower core temp for deep sleep (if working out within 3 hrs before sleep), importance of good sleep.
  • ~1:20 fasted aerobic workout tips for fat metabolism.. + tips
  • ~somewhere: need to eat leafy greens with high fat meats.
  • ~1:30 Morning keto, afternoon carbs post workout. Anti ageing effects of blueberry and cacao relating to NAD
  • 1:48 Coffee enemas (coffee for me =  roller-coaster straight to anxiety)

So much good stuff

BJJ Monday

Porah.

Darren came up to me after my second roll specifically and said great rolling, after I rolled with Chris.

pass Z guard.

grab 2 on 1 grip on their arm, grab their wrist and elbow.

Sprawl flattening their knee.

weight through their hip and shin prevents them from re-guarding.

if you’re low you’ll need to climb their body to pass their ankle

hooked ankle , foot to butt and fold your foot over theirs to allow the guard pass

Salt rampage

I did a search for salt in the iTunes podcast store. Partially motivated by reading on my latest heavy metal protocol, but also because of cramps tied to salts as identified by my BJJ coach. Just had  > a teaspoon of dissolved Celtic sea salt in a Powerade bottle, feeling better…. Another mineral to obsess about 🙂

From the protocol: “If you are having a hay-fever attack, try the salt and a glass of water. Make sure and look at the second hand of a clock. Because you will want to take note in how many seconds it takes to work.”

Feels good in my lungs too… hmmm..!!!!!

In my head this feels a little Wim Hoff’y like a cellular cleaning in my brain…
“The body needs the Chloride from salt to detoxify, to make the right amount of HCL in the stomach for digestion, to clean neurons”

This all feels a little synchronistic
