Low-carb diets can be highly effective for weight loss, but they may have drawbacks.

 

Without the addition of sufficient protein and incorporating weight training, they could potentially impact your metabolism negatively, leading to a decrease in metabolic rate.

 

On today’s show, I’ll discuss how to prevent this issue and provide insights on achieving a balanced ratio of low-carb and protein for optimal weight loss benefits.

 

Tune in to today’s #CabralConcept 2861 to explore the importance of finding the right carb-to-protein balance when trying to lose weight on a low-carb diet. Enjoy the show, and feel free to share your thoughts!

Many people are unaware that there is a specific disorder that can significantly affect many individuals dealing with ADD, ADHD, depression, alcoholism, schizophrenia, Aspergers, autism, Tourettes, OCD, and various other mood-based disorders.

 

Today, I want to shed light on this imbalance, as it is often overlooked by conventional medicine but holds immense importance in order to heal.

 

Tune in to today’s #CabralConcept 2860 as we discuss what “pyrrole disorder” is, how it manifests in the body, and a simple dietary fix you can implement to rebalance the body. Enjoy the show and please feel free to share your thoughts!

I believe you can attain any goal you set your mind to. 

 

The challenge, in my opinion, is that many people desire instant success and overlook the fact that we must navigate through various stages to reach our desired destination. 

 

On today's #CabralConcept 2859, I want to discuss your current position in life, strategies for improvement, and how you can start climbing the ladder of success to achieve your goals. Enjoy the show and feel free to share your thoughts!

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!

I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…

 

Julia: Hi Dr Cabral, I looked into past podcast episodes and couldn't find the information I was looking for. What is your opinion on IV iron infusions using Ferric carboxymaltose? My iron and ferritin levels have been low for years and my doctor recommended it to me. Thank you

 

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I hope you and your family are doing well.. My question is about seasoning the cast iron pan.. we found lots of videos on HOW to do it (they differ but all in all I guess you need to bake the oil into it many times in the oven) but which oil to use? Some say flaxseed, because of its polymerisation properties, others say of course not flax because it becomes toxic when heated.. some say olive oil, others are strongly against it.. so we need your help! ;) You are our favourite source of information! How would you do it? And please don’t say lard, because I’m plant-based.. If you could explain the whole procedure that you think is best, that would be a bonus :) Thank you so much, and a great day to everyone !

 

Anonymous: Hello I have a question about EMFs in the bedroom… We live in a house with different flats… the main wifi router in in the staircase, underneath our bedroom and it’s for all tenants… we also have a built in fridge on the other side of the bedroom wall… how can we protect our bedroom from these EMFs? Also, there’s a cupboard for food storage touching the fridge from the side… is that also bad for the food that’s inside that cupboard? Thank you

 

Kelsi: hi dr. cabral, thanks for all you do! i get colonics monthly and just wanted to get your opinion on the frequency. is that okay/safe to do?

 

Autumn: Hi, Dr. Cabral. I hope you can help. Is time restricted feeding beneficial in slowing progression of chronic kidney disease? I & two of my 3 children have just recently tested positive for the non-sex linked Alport syndrome. I already practice the IF 16:8 protocol, but wonder if a weekly 24-hour fast might be beneficial. I've listened to your podcasts on kidney health. Good stuff! My most recent labs (UA and blood) have come back clean for the first time since I was 12. (no protein, blood, leukocytes). For the last 2 years I've been practicing whole food nutrition, intermittent fasting, 3 days of strength training & 2 days of HIIT. My body's responding well. I'm curious how IF factors in. *FYI 137 pound female. 5' 7". Macro intake @ 2200 cal/day with a 45/25/30 (carbs/protein/fat) split

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: 

 

Anonymous:  Hi, dr. C. I live in Europe so it’s difficult to get your DNS powder because of expensive shipping.. so my smoothies are full of berries, apples, bananas, avocado, steamed/cooked veggies (peas, broccoli, carrot, etc.) and herbs and spices.. I don’t add any extra protein powders, hopefully the veggies, especially peas provide enough? But lately I’ve been more into oatmeal with blueberries & raspberries, a mashed banana, some bee pollen and a steamed apple.. sometimes some papaya gets in there too.. then I add A LOT of hemp seeds, probably at least 3 heaping tablespoons of it - is that too much & is it enough in terms of protein intake? I have a huge bowl of it, mostly it’s the fruit and hempseeds with just a little bit of oatmeal.. But I don’t think that breakfast keeps me full for long (neither does the smoothie) and after I get hungry, it’s so fast that I start shaking & need to eat something straight away.. I even got hot flashes and dizzy two weeks ago instead of just getting hungry.. What am I doing wrong and how would you correct it? I guess it also has something to do with me not eating breakfast soon after I wake up? I drink a litre of lemon water (is that too much ?) and then do some tinctures so it takes me a while before I get to eat breakfast.. Thank you so much for your help, have a great day

 

Anonymous: Hello… I’ve been listening to your podcasts and wondering, what is the best way to eat fruit and when? I find it a bit confusing… Should it be before anything else or does that spike your blood sugar? If protein should be a part of every meal, but fruit eaten on its own… doesn’t make sense? In a smoothie it can be mixed with everything else, but what if you just enjoy eating a lot of fruit on its own? What time of the day, when, considering other meals, etc..? Thank you

 

Alexandra: Hi Dr. Cabral, I'm an IHP Level 2 and very grateful for all the work you've done and the information you've provided. I've had a lot of equilife lab testing done. I've come back high in heavy metals - mercury (0.110) and aluminum (0.79). I've gone through a heavy metal detox and am actively continuing to detox through sauna and Epsom salt baths. My concern is that I'm a 28 y.o. female and have very bad pelvic pain that used to occur only before menstruation. It now occurs at other times of the month and has become quite limiting. I've been referred to a GYN surgeon who would like me to have exploratory surgery to address possible endometriosis. I know there must be another natural way to address the root cause of this. I prefer to avoid surgery. I would love any recommendations you have.

 

Colleen: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. Every time you do, it helps me in some way no matter the subject, and I'm sure the same is true for many others as well. I had a question about walking after a meal. If someone has weak digestion, would it be better to walk after eating or to rest and let the blood flow to the stomach? I'd think it'd be best to rest, but everywhere I turn, it seems the advice is that the best thing to do is walk after a meal to help with digestion. If so, how long should someone wait after a meal to go for a walk without getting out of the relaxed PNS state. (On ep. 1639 you mentioned 10-20 mins after a meal, just checking if that still applies if you have very weak digestion). Thank you again, hope this makes sense.

 

Ali: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am currently in the process of becoming IHP level 1 & 2 certified and am so grateful for all the resources and education you provide through these courses. After learning about all the conditions and disorders we are able to help with diet, nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle changes, I was wondering if you have done any research on Narcolepsy and natural alternatives that could help. I am 25 years old and was diagnosed with Narcolepsy when I was 20. I am on the highest dosage of stimulants you can be just to get through the day feeling 'normal'. I am terrified of the long term effects this will have myself and others with Narcolepsy. Thanks in advance for even answering this question, have a wonderful rest of your week!
