Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!
This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!
Check out today's questions:
Mo: Hi Dr Cabral, Mo here again. I just wanted to start off by telling you that I do not think you have any clue how much of an impact you have made in my immediate family & the world. You are one of my idols and I am so grateful for having been introduced to you. Thank you for all you do, it is truly needed in the world, especially these days!In regards to my question, this is something that has been confusing me for nearly a decade and no-one has been able to give me a proper answer. I have used multiple smart watches to calculate my BMR and have counted my macros numerous times of my life and cant seem to understand how this works for my body. I am 6'3, 185-190lbs, typically around a 4-8% B/F, Pitta-Vatta, do 3 days a week full body interval training, 2 days light cardio. I average about 3800 calories burned on light days and 4500 on full body training days however I cant seem to eat more than 2500 calories unless I do a cheat/flex meal. How is it that my body can burn more calories nearly every single day of the week than it takes in and I am not catabolic? I feel absolutely amazing (especially since following a lot of your protocols and daily routines). I'm not trying to put on muscle or get any bigger, but just curious what your thoughts are. Thank you thank you thank you!
Imogen: Hi there!Thank you for everything you do! I am currently reading your book and am learning so much.What is your opinion on camels milk? I searched it up on your podcast but there were no results. Would it be similar to goats milk or would you avoid it like cows dairy. (I have never tried it though so not sure what it taste like)
James: Hi Mentor Cabral. I have messaged you a few times during my bodybuilding bulk and cut. Thanks for your previous advice. I am currently in my cutting phase and my question is........... Once I come out of my cutting phase, I obviously want to retain all the muscle I have built for as long as possible, basically the remainder of my life. My predicament though, is that I do not want to constantly worry about if I have consumed 0.8-1g of protein per lb of body weight, and I don't want to worry about eating at a maintenance everyday. Will my body adjust to this new found muscle, and will I retain my muscle naturally just through regular strength training and just eating intuitively? Or, will I still have to make sure I am eating at a maintenance and getting lots of protein? I'll be around 200lbs at the end of my cut so It's quite a lot of protein and calories I need to be at maintenance, and I would rather just eat how I feel like. Obviously I know I cannot starve myself, or eat 30g of protein and expect to retain my muscle I have built up this year, but I just wondered if you had any tips on how to retain my muscle without being so anal about my calories and macronutrient ratios?
Sam: Hi Dr Cabral, I take the daily foundational protocol level 3 but have also added some triphala. Do you think it's a bad idea to take triphala everyday?
Bettina: Dear Stephen CabralThank you for your great podcast and for sharing all your knowledge, I truly appreciate it.I have a question regarding smoothies with frozen berries. The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration advice that all frozen berries are cooked at high heat for one minute before consuming. This is because of a possible link between Hepatitis A and smoothies with frozen berries. I drink smoothies everyday with frozen berries so I would love to know what your thoughts are on this?Best regards Bettina
Larissa: Hi Dr. Cabral! I'm an IHP and am so grateful for all of your guidance and everything you you do for the community! I have a couple questions: 1. What are your thoughts on Taurine. Do you feel this is something that Vegans should supplement with after fine tuning foundational things first using data from the Big Five Labs? 2. What are your thoughts on Magnesium Threonate compared to other forms of Magnesium. Many people feel this is an exceptional form for people with Anxiety & Depression because it can more easily cross the blood brain barrier. Thank you for sharing all of your wisdom & experience!
