Bikram Yoga Creep: Does High-Heat Exercise Detox And Slim You?

Is sweaty bikram yoga good for you?

Is sweaty bikram yoga good for you?

You’ve probably heard your yoga instructor, some celebrity, or your next door neighbor wax poetic about the detoxifying and slimming benefits of doing yoga or other exercises in extremely hot, humid, and unventilated environments.

All that sweat carries toxins out of the body and leads to quicker fat loss, the story goes.

This belief has become so popular that something I refer to as “bikram creep,” has taken hold in the yoga and general fitness world, and now completely unrelated activities are being done at 90 to 110 °F.

But is there any truth to this?

In episode 26 of the Raw Food Health Podcast I talk about Bikram Yoga Creep and the physiological side of doing exercise in hot environments.

Mike Vlasaty

We know raw foodists excel at endurance sports, but what about about strength training?

When Mike Vlasaty went raw, he decided to concentrate on weight lifting and bodyweight exercises to see if he could really get strong and gain a lot of muscle while eating a raw vegan diet.

In the Raw Food Health Podcast Episode 25 we talk to Mike about how that experiment worked out, what he eats, if he’s concerned about protein, and many other topics.

I also talk about whether or not a healthy low fat raw vegan diet is appropriate for everyone.

Show Notes

1) Mike’s Fruit And Strength Youtube Page.
2) What Ants Can Teach You About Health/Systems Theory
3) AGE formation And fructose

How Cinnamon, Peppers, Herbs, And Spices Can Harm You

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Think cinnamon, turmeric, peppers, and the dozens of flavor-enhancing foods, spices, and herbs raw foodists sometimes employ are healthy because they’re raw?

In episode 23 of the Raw Food Health Podcast we talk about why many “healthy” foods have a downside that creates the drug-like effect doctors, ayurvedic and Chinese medicine practitioners, and naturopaths like to praise.

I also interview Phillip Cuccerre, the Business Development Manager for the Carmelita banana brand. I ask him why his company’s bananas seem to taste better than the average cavendish you get in the United States.

Show Notes:

1) Garlic Article
2) Onion Article
3) Cinnamon Article
4) Escaping Diabetes Email Answer
