00:00 Intro


04:00 Intermittent fasting is a good solution for stubborn fat. 04:15 Your diet has to work for you for the long run: psychologically, biologically and sociologically.

06:38 Fat is a complex endocrine organ, like the thyroid and adrenal glands.

06:56 Fat produces critical hormones that your body depends upon, like leptin.

07:03 When you lose fat you get lower levels of leptin, which binds with your hypothalamus and your skeletal muscle.

07:55 When skeletal muscle notices less leptin, it burns fewer calories.

09:48 Your genetics may cause you to have to work harder to keep off or lose weight.

10:15 Viruses, age, gender and hormones impact weight. Our fat busting hormones decline with age.

14:00 How your body responds to a food is individual.

14:50 Prolonged overnight fasting prolongs the effects of fat buster, growth hormone.

15:12 With intermittent fasting you get more glucagon, more leptin (so you feel more satiated), and more willpower for making better choices.

16:35 Staying low calorie all day never gives you a sense of satisfaction, leading to increased failure of diet.

19:14 Subcutaneous fat is under your skin. Visceral fat, under the stomach wall, leads to problems with the immune system, diabetes, and heart disease. Brown fat burns calories during cold exposure and beige fat that can turn into brown.

19:42 Visceral fat cells become hypoxic, sending signals of duress and your immune system responds with inflammation, which interferes with insulin signaling.

20:50 Fat releases adiponectin which guides the fat you eat and the fat you release to the right places in your body; to be stores as subcutaneous rather than visceral.

21:22 Sumo wrestlers have subcutaneous fat, not visceral. They exercise 6 – 7 hours per day, releasing higher levels of adiponectin.

22:13 About 2 hours of aerobic activity per day can move your fat to the right areas.

23:30 To see if you have visceral fat, lay on your back and a paunch on your stomach stays there, that is visceral fat. 25:35 Ancestral famines create a thrifty genotype which causes you to hold fat for later.

29:30 Viruses can make animals fat. Some cross into humans. 38:10 You need to be in the right mindset to lose weight.

40:50 HIIT in the evening while fasting busts through weight loss plateaus for Dr. Tara.

41:25 Temptation bundling: Bring something pleasurable into your workout to enhance your ability to create a habit.

43:48 A habit is more reliable than willpower. Reducing the number of decisions you make during the day reduces decision fatigue.

44:16 Successful dieters can get back on their diet the next day. Perfect isn’t the goal.

12:50 Sleep apnea and insomnia are characterized by poor body chemistry for sleep.
13:25 We have 4 complicated linked sleep switches.
14:52 Vitamin D feeds the gut bugs that make B vitamins and the vagus nerve directly connects our gut bugs to our brains.
18:10 Dr. Stasha Gominak sees sleep apnea, requiring c-pap is an end stage disease.
20:20 Every night the tongue sends feedback signals directing growth to the brain.
21:15 When the mouth is open during sleep, the jaw and the rest of the face will not develop normally.
22:00 The chemistry of the brain plays a part in sleep disordered children.
29:40 Vitamins don’t fix people. You need to be asleep to apply them to repair.
36:40 B Vitamins play a huge role in our sleep.
37:40 B vitamins come from gut bugs, not your food.
42:30 The 8 B vitamins are created as an 8-pack in specific ratios.

55:50 Normal sleep is needed to improve the functioning of an autistic child.
01:11:13 If you have autoimmune disease, each immunization risks flaring the condition.
01:23:49 Acetylcholine is responsible for our ability to concentrate during the day and responsible for our ability to enter sleep, stay in sleep and get paralyzed in sleep.
01:27:40 Acetylcholine is a major player in the parasympathetic nervous system/rest and digest.
01:30:02 Improper heartrate variability means that your sympathetic nervous system is in overdrive.
01:32:36 Acetylcholine, not only acts like a neurotransmitter, it acts as an anti-inflammatory hormone.
01:35:08 Some scientist believe that ADD, as well as autism, is a disease of acetylcholine deficiency.
01:38:00 Your microbiome makes your serotonin, using vitamin D and pyridoxine.
01:41:10 Vitamin D2 is not the same as vitamin D3.
01:44:00 A vitamin D blood level of between 60 – 80 is optimal for a sleep disordered person.
01:44:50 The accurate vitamin D testing method is the LCMS.
01:54:37 Vitamin D works directly upon the pituitary.
01:55:40 1,25-OH is directly linked to the repair of DNA damage resulting from UVB light hitting the skin.
01:56:30 Each hormone in your body is designed to have a unique affect on each organ that has that receptor.
01:59:00 Dr. Gominak has a workbook on her website for you to use.
