Thanks for checking out the Weekly Learning Roundup. These bite-sized, weekly posts are designed to give you a quick hit of interesting learnings and articles I came across this week.
It’s a motley assortment of tips, resources, and links that will hopefully give you a bit of inspiration for the upcoming week. Enjoy!
What I’m reading —
How to Find Your Ideal Carb Intake by Bulletproof
For anyone contemplating a keto or low-carb diet, this is a helpful article as a starting point. If you get started on a keto-style diet, the key will be to make sure you track your daily macronutrients to see where your carb consumption lands.
Books, documentaries, or podcast episodes I’m enjoying —
Exploring Smart Drugs, Fasting, and Fat Loss — Dr. Rhonda Patrick from The Tim Ferriss Show
This is a true masterclass in health, nutrition, and biohacking. Dr. Rhonda Patrick jam packs 2.5 hours with knowledge on heat/cold exposure, supplementation, time-restricted eating, anti-aging strategies, inflammation, and so much more. It’s a little overwhelming for anyone just getting to understand nutrition but for those who are looking to take their health to the next level with the latest science, this is a must listen.
A quote that’s inspiring me —
When you let go of the belief that you should or need to know who you are, what happens to confusion? Suddenly it is gone. When you fully accept that you don’t know, you actually enter a state of peace and clarity that is closer to who you truly are than thought could ever be. Defining yourself through thought is limiting yourself.
— Eckhart Tolle
“ah-ha!” thought of the week —
The importance of magnesium in my diet.
Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems in the body. Key biochemical reactions like protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation require adequate amounts of magnesium. Most adults are deficient in magnesium so it’s important to consume a lot of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, and cauliflower to make sure you don’t become magnesium deficient. I’ve been getting better sleep and higher energy during the day recently after adding 450g of magnesium citrate into my daily supplementation.
