Today’s DOC TALK:
Even 15 minutes of exercise can significantly enhance your metabolism and help you lose those extra pounds. Short sessions of movement, especially interval training that involves some sort of cross training types of movements, can help prevent weight gain and even result in healthy weight loss – Dr Michael Brown. ￼
15 minutes of exercise, a simple eating plan that works for you, breathing correctly for 3-6 minutes per day, and ending your showers with cold water will in essence perform miracles in these areas:
- Enhancing your metabolism and thus helping with healthy weight loss
- Improve the function of your lymphatic system which can enhance detoxification
- Balance your endocrine system improving blood sugar and insulin levels
- Strengthen and optimize your immune system
- Elevate your serotonin and other neurotransmitters resulting in a better mood, increased energy, and happier, more joyful attitude towards life
MIX UP WHAT YOU DO!
- With regards to exercise – change things up and do what you love: walk one time, ride a bike another, hike, lift weights, use an elliptical machine… just mix it up so that more muscle groups and body systems are involved.
- Dr Brown’s philosophy – just get out and move – do things you love to do whether its walking, hiking, running, biking, tennis, racketball, golf, weight lifting, snowboard, ski, yoga, pilates, etc
- BREATHE… Check out the Wim Hof Method and learn how to use simple breathing techniques and a structured, therapeutic exposure to cold (via cold showering) to optimize health, metabolism, immune system function, and overall well-being.

PICK A HEALTHIER WAY OF EATING THAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU!
- There is NO “one way of eating” that is right for everyone. You have to find what works best for you, your body, your beliefs, and your lifestyle.
- Consider a Mediterranean diet – healthy fats, more fish, lean animal proteins, mild to moderate red wine consumption, fruits & veggies – this is the most studied diet in the world and is a very healthy way of eating
- Are you a MEAT EATER? For those of you who are – consider the CARNIVORE CODE diet by Paul Saladino, MD – this way of eating is also a very healthy option for many!
- Also – check out Jame’s Smith book – NOT A DIET BOOK – this is a no nonsense guide to eating and exercising that works!
Download the Wim Hof App from the App Store – do his 30 day challenge that incorporates breathing, push ups, and cold showering. It will change your life SIGNIFICANTLY for the BETTER on almost EVERY LEVEL!
- Get your heart rate to go up and down during your workout session. For example, if you are walking, maybe walk at at pace you can carry on a conversation for the first three minutes then walk at a pace for a minute or two that is fast enough that it is tough to carry on a conversation then alternate back and forth this way for 15 – 30 minutes.
- You can do this with walking, running, hiking, biking, weight lifting, etc. Just get your heart rate to go up and down.
- Add in a healthy “way of eating” and you will REALLY lose that unwanted weight!
