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:
Christina: Hi Dr. Cabral. What do you think about eating for your blood type? I’ve been reading the book “Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type” and find it particularly interesting. Any comments or thoughts on this?
Ryan: Hello, I have been wondering if you know anything about the approximate ratio of black pepper to turmeric is needed to get the benefits of the bioperine? I don’t want to get too much into the micro here but also would like to know practically if a tiny grind from the shaker is enough or if larger amounts are needed? Thanks in advance.
Cindy: Dr Cabral, I listened to Episode 760 on killing viruses. It talks about the need to ramp up your immune system, however, I have an autoimmune thyroid,(Hashimotos) and was told to avoid things that ramp up my immune system, because the immune system has already gone rogue, and it could cause the body to attack itself even more. For instance, I read to avoid echinacea and Holy Basil. Can you clear this up because I certainly would like to support immune system without causing issues with my autoimmunity. I listen all the time, so thanks for your help on this issue. Cindy
Liz: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for putting so much time and effort into your podcasts; it’s clear that you have a drive and a need to help people help themselves! I’ve learned a lot over the past couple of years. My question is, what do you think of fucoxanthin supplements to aid in fat loss? I haven’t been able to find a lot of information on it, but what I have seen seems promising. It’s hard to find though, and I question the quality of the supplements I have been able to find. Is fucoxanthin legit? And if so how do I find a source I can trust? Thank you!
Bob: Hi Dr. Cabral. Love the podcast and your unbias approach to everything you cover. I know you have a lot of content on Intermittent Fasting so I apologize if my question has already been addressed, but I’m wondering what breaks a fast when doing Intermittent Fasting? I’ll start my morning w/ some organic non-caffeinated herbal tea (typically some Roasted Dandelion Root or Rose Hips & Hibiscus by Traditional Medicinals, or Lemon Ginger plus Probiotics by Bigelow). Would that break my fast? Also curious about supplements. Would taking a supplement pill first thing in the morning or right before bed break a fast?
Crystal: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am 25 and have struggled with my weight my entire life. When I was in high school, I got very slim but then gained over 100 pounds between ages 19-20. I was then diagnosed at 20 with PCOS which has resulted in chronic dry eye syndrome and hypothyroidism. I went vegan shortly after I was diagnosed for ethical and health reasons. I was able to lose the majority of the weight, but in the past year have put a lot back on. Even with listening to your previous podcasts on PCOS, doing slow weighted workouts and steady cardio with balanced, high-protein meals, the weight does not want to shed. I’m at a loss for what to do and was wondering if you could recommend a certain diet/protocol? I want to mention that because I’m vegan and aiming to eat higher protein meals, I often use faux meats to meet my macro goals. I sway towards cleaner products, but many have PUFAs, which I know you say causes inflammation. Could this be a reason I’m not losing weight? Do I have to give these up to reach my goals? What are some better protein sources for vegans besides beans, tofu, and tempeh? Thank you so much! I so value your work and expertise, and am so grateful for your podcast and deep care for peoples’ health!
