#163 - Jo Guy's Throwback

Jo Guy is a holistic dietitian and certified health coach from Melbourne.

For anyone that wants to be fit, lose weight, or just eat healthy, having the proper nutrition and diet is important. This episode with Jo really helps put emphasis on that thought, and it’s really great to hear these things from someone who is well versed in this particular field.

Jo starts with telling us a little about herself, then proceeds to tell us the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist. She then talks about which nutrients will make a person fat, and the science of the study on nutrition. We then ask her what diet is recommended for someone who wants to lose fat.

Jo talks about the importance of having a holistic approach, then on to what effects a lack of sleep has on losing fat. She then talks about her number one food principle and what you can do during the most important meal of the day: breakfast. She then tells us about her smoothie.

Jo tells us about food and how it can act like a drug. After that, she proceeds to tell us about the nutrients that are needed by high-performance athletes. She also talks about gut health issues. We ask her about what she thinks about the paleo diet for CrossFitters. After that, she talks about how milk can make you bulky, her thoughts on bulking up, and why people crave for sugar. She also shares with us a few meditation practices.

Jo also talks about the ketogenic diet and which diet works for her. She talks about the benefits of this specific diet, as well as the healthiest way of getting on it. Is it recommendable? We ask her. She then shares with us what her most rewarding work is.

Moving on, she talks about the best thing she’s personally done in terms of dieting. We then ask her what’s next for her, then go into our usual series of questions to get to know a little more about Jo.

That about wraps it up, and we hope you enjoy it!

In this episode, we discuss firstly Diane's role models, what kicked off her signup for the one-way mission to Mars and why she made the choice. The conversation goes into the nuances of interplanetary life and the science behind Mars as the top pick for the first space colony.

They also talk about how the government structure will initially work in Mars once it’s actually there. Leadership and politics, ladies and gents!

It gets more interesting as Dianne shares how the initial phases of living will be like on the planet, growing the human population, and how we could potentially harness the natural resources on Mars. She also outlines how food growing systems are to be integrated and what the top food picks are for living extraterrestrial life.

Further, they talk about the possibility of encountering extraterrestrial life and what that potentially means for humanity in general, as well as terraforming Mars.

Towards the end of the conversation, we learn more about Dianne’s methods on biohacking and how she does everything she can to maximize her life.
