• 102. The Metabolism Makeover | Small Changes for Big Results w/ Lisa Swanson

    In this episode of "Too Young To Be Old," Diane Gilman, the queen of jeans, sits down with nutrition expert Lisa Swanson to discuss the intricacies of metabolism, how it affects our bodies, and practical steps to manage it effectively.

    Meet Your Metabolism

    Lisa Swanson emphasizes the importance of understanding and meeting your metabolism where it currently stands. This involves tracking your current food intake without making any immediate changes. By observing how your current diet affects your weight and overall well-being, you can begin to understand the relationship between your eating habits and your metabolism.

    The Role of Tracking

    Tracking what you eat is crucial. Lisa explains that it's not just about counting calories but about recognizing how the food you consume impacts your weight and health. This step is essential in identifying whether your current diet is causing weight gain, loss, or maintenance and understanding the associated signs and symptoms.

    Balancing Your Diet

    Once you have a clear picture of your current eating habits and their effects, the next step is to balance your diet. Lisa discusses how she helps clients like Diane, who might be under-eating, by gradually increasing their caloric intake in a way that supports their metabolism. She stresses that a sudden jump in calories can lead to weight gain, so it's important to make adjustments that align with what your metabolism needs.

    Understanding Caloric Needs

    Lisa provides insights into how she determines the appropriate caloric intake for her clients. She mentions that while some nutritionists might find her methods unconventional, her approach is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual's metabolism. For instance, someone under-eating at 800 calories a day might need a gradual increase to 1100 calories to boost their metabolism without overwhelming it.

    A beige trench coat is Diane's go-to piece for London. It's versatile, breathable, and can be worn both on and off the plane. She recommends an unlined trench coat made of cotton canvas for its slim body effect and compatibility with various outfits. Diane suggests packing two pairs of leggings, one in tan and one in black, and a graphic print trench coat. She plans to alter a wrap dress into a tunic to wear over leggings, which she finds perfect for giving speeches or casual outings. Crew neck tanks, primarily cotton but some rayon, are a must for easy washing and quick drying. Diane also packs turtlenecks in black and ivory, which look great under a trench coat and paired with a classic status scarf.

    Accessories and Footwear

    Two statement scarves, one emphasizing black and ivory and another with shades of brown, add a touch of elegance. Diane's travel bag from Anya Hindmarch, with multiple compartments for easy access, and a gold metallic clutch for evenings, complete her accessory list. Diane recommends a status gold horse bit loafer and a fashionable sneaker. For a sophisticated urban look, she suggests the Adidas sneaker or a two-tone canvas sneaker from Toteme.

    Fashion Tips for Urban Travel

    Diane highlights the importance of looking stylish and polished in urban environments like London, Paris, Milan, and Zurich. She suggests packing a structured blazer, preferably in beige, and wearing classic European outfits that mix and match easily. Diane's approach to travel fashion is all about practicality without sacrificing style. She emphasizes the need for pieces that are easy to pack, versatile, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

  • 90. Reduce Pain and Age Better with Cupping, Red Light Therapy, Acupuncture, and Cryotherapy

    Empower yourself to take control of your aging and wellness with Dr. Tom Ingegno, the host of the Irreverent Health podcast and a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. He discusses various modalities including cupping, red light therapy, acupuncture, and cryotherapy, shedding light on their efficacy in helping people to age comfortably without pain.

    In this enlightening episode, Tom and Diane encourage listeners to embrace holistic approaches to wellness, empower themselves through education, and collaborate with their bodies to maintain optimal health and vitality at every stage of life.

    Exploring Ancient Remedies: Cupping and Its Origins

    Dr. Ingegno enlightens listeners on the ancient practice of cupping, a therapy whose origins are so widespread across the civilized world that its precise beginnings remain a mystery. They delve into how cupping can effectively alleviate inflammation and address a myriad of ailments, offering a holistic approach to wellness.

    Red Light Therapy: A Modern Miracle Cure

    Comparing red light therapy to acupuncture, Dr. Ingegno draws parallels in their mechanisms within the body. Backed by 40 years of clinical research, red light therapy emerges as a potential miracle cure, with Diane sharing her personal transformative experience with its benefits. Tom highlights the inclusivity of East Asian medicine and its integration of successful elements from various medical traditions.

    Dr. Ingegno explains how red light therapy operates within the body, talking about the profound impact it has on cellular function. 

    Hyperbaric Chambers and Exercise with Oxygen Therapy 

    Tom and Diane discuss the benefits of hyperbaric chambers and a new therapy Tom introduced in his practice called exercise with oxygen therapy. It introduces even more oxygen into the bloodstream in less time than a home hyperbaric chamber. 

    Embracing Cryotherapy: The Cold Chamber Solution

    Next, they talk about cryotherapy. It is a relatively recent innovation originating in Japan in 1978. Dr. Ingegno says it helps reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and cleanses the blood. Despite its chilly nature, cryotherapy offers a dry environment that ensures safety while delivering therapeutic benefits.

    Aging Well: Bridging Hospital Healthcare with Holistic Wellness


    Delving into the gap between hospital healthcare and holistic wellness, Diane queries why these remarkable healing modalities aren’t more widely encouraged within medical institutions. Dr. Ingegno attributes this disparity to the medical system's focus on treating illness rather than preventing it, underscoring the importance of bridging the gap between conventional medicine and holistic approaches.

    Revolutionizing Wellness: Nutrition and Lifestyle

    Reflecting on the state of modern wellness, Dr. Ingegno expresses concern over society's departure from fundamental wellness practices such as adequate sleep, balanced nutrition, and regular physical activity. Diane echoes these sentiments, citing research linking processed food diets to adverse health outcomes, and discussing the detrimental effects of industrial meat production on consumer health.

    Empowerment Through Education: Making Holistic Therapies Accessible

    Recognizing that access to alternative therapies is often a privilege, Dr. Ingegno emphasizes the importance of education and empowerment in promoting wellness. His efforts to make cupping more accessible through his book underscore the potential for individuals to take charge of their health and well-being as they age.

    Discover some of the questions we should all be asking about ourselves as we age in this week’s Too Young To Be Old, as host Diane Gilman talks about learning to love the aging process with life coach and author, Kwavi Agbeyegbe. The answers might change how you see yourself, and the way we view aging!

    Discovering Your Path

    Kwavi, author of “50 Questions to Answer When You Turn 50,” shares her insights on how women can embrace their age without shame. She and Diane discuss Kwavi’s top five questions from her book. How would you live if you knew you had a year to live? What would you stop doing? What would you start doing? Kwavi explains how the answers can encourage women to live life to the fullest.

    Embracing Change

    Kwavi chats with Diane about the hesitation that many women have in asking questions about themselves as they age. She stresses the importance of accepting the change and confronting uncomfortable truths, and how these can lead to a happier life. 

    Redefining Aging

    Cultural Perspectives

    Kwavi contrasts the celebration of older women in Nigerian culture with the ageism prevalent in American society. She talks about the power older women have to redefine societal norms around aging, rather than having to accept them. 

    Community and Support

    Diane and Kwavi discuss the lack of support and community for women as they age, particularly in navigating health and happiness. They encourage women regardless of their age to work together to advocate for their rights.

    Seizing Opportunities

    Kwavi encourages women to pursue their passions. She shares her own experience of becoming Miss Georgia in her 50s, which only happened because she embraced her opportunities for happiness and fulfillment.
