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…
Let’s get started!
Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) This podcast is my favourite thing of the day.. I listen to it while preparing my lemon water and smoothie in the morning :) Which brings me to my question(/-s).. I usually make a huge smoothie with everything you can think of (frozen berries, leafy greens, protein powder and then lots of herbs and spices, mushroom powders, ginger & turmeric root, etc. It comes out pretty big so I started freezing half of it for the days I don’t have the time to make it.. does freezing & then defrosting destroy all the good benefits of all these ingredients which are blended together? My second question about it is, even though I eat quite a big bowl of it, I still feel quite hungry and shaky after it.. like I don’t have energy in my muscles to do any real movement or exercise.. that feeling sometimes stays with me for most of the day or until I eat something solid (which usually makes me feel bloated or uncomfortable in the stomach).. is this weird, considering I do use healthy fats and proteins and carbs in the smoothie (and it’s a really big amount of it)? Thank you so much for your answers and everything you do.. much love to you, your family and everyone in this community..
Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) One more smoothie related question: I usually eat an apple after my smoothie.. is that ok or should I eat an apple before the smoothie? And how much time before or after? I usually also have some DRIED berries every day (blueberries, cranberries, goji berries, etc.) I remember you’ve said dried fruit isn’t the best, but I’m not sure why.. is it the same for dried berries? Thank you so much.. again :)
Anonymous: Hi, dr. Cabral! I’ve been a listener for a year and a half now and enjoy all the different types of shows you do. Since you are really into Ayurveda and spirituality of sorts, I was wondering if you have heard of Human Design yet? It is a holistic self-knowledge system combining astrology, the I Ching, Kabbalah and Vedic philosophy. It would be really interesting if you would do an episode about it or maybe even an interview with an expert on it.. I’ve only heard about it last Christmas but since then met lots of people that found great help in knowing themselves better through it, alleviating conditioning by society and overall starting to accept themselves better because of understanding oneself. Including me. Hope you find it interesting. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.
Darren: Good day Dr. Cabral. I got excited when I saw CNN with the news headline "Eating fat can lower stroke risk, study says, as long as it's the right kind" https://edition.cnn.com/2021/11/09/health/fat-stroke-risk-wellness/index.html but got disappointed as the article went on. The American Heart Association director & senior scientist went on to promote liquid vegetable oils corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, which are high in polyunsaturated fatty acids, and monosaturated like canola oil. How does one tell their family, coworkers, clients and friends to stay away from those plant based oils when the AHA, of all people, are promoting them?
Darren: Hey Dr. Cabral. I've been wondering, do you still maintain your weekly fast since you've embarked on the muscle gaining journey or do you put it on hold to attain that current goal? Also have you noticed any drastic pros or drawbacks since you began? Keep up great work.
Anonymous: What's the reason for accelerated heart rate after meals? No change in diet. All the same. I've started experiencing heart palpitations and accelerated heart rate and sometimes even twitches after my meals. Even with smoothies. It happens the moment I put something in my stomach. Really weird.
