Welcome to The Just Fuel Show where Dr. Mike Roussell and Kaisa Keranen discuss all things nutrition-related. We both come from very different backgrounds, with very different perspectives, but we shared the same goal of helping people become happier, healthier human beings. We will not engage in any conversation about weight loss. Topics are strictly around how to best fuel your body for optimum health and performance. 🍗🥒🍓
Ep 12 // Goal Setting
33:24New year new you? F🤬CK THAT!Check out today’s episode to hear all about what Dr. Mike and I think about goal setting. This was the last show of the year and it was one of my favorites. I am so thankful for you Dr. Mike and I can’t wait to be beck at it with you in the new year! 🙌
Ep 11 // Rapid Fire Nutrition Q&A
28:19We spent today’s episode answering all of YOUR questions and it was FIRE! 🔥 Questions ranged from, do we need to be taking apple cider vinegar every morning to should we be exercising fasted? SO much info was packed into these 30 mins, I highly suggest taking a minute to tune in!
Ep 10 // Processed Foods
32:13“Learn to count chemicals not calories!”The topic of today’s show was all about processed foods! An average American’s diet consists of over 50% processed food! And considering that industry designs their food to be cheap, convenient and addicting, that’s not surprising.Not only did Dr. Mike break down the different types of processed foods, he also explained what types of things we should be looking for, as not all processed foods need to labeled as “bad.”
Ep 9 // Stress
29:06This morning I asked Dr. Mike if we could switch things up last minute and talk about managing stress because to keep it 💯 I am NOT managing right now.I think this might have been our best discussion to date. Maybe it’s because I really needed some advice & guidance right now or maybe it’s because Dr. Mike was just on 🔥 (as usual). But either way, I highly suggest tuning into this episode if you are finding yourself stressed to the max and needing new ways to chilllllll out and take care of yourself. 🖤
Ep 8 // Eat More Veggies
32:08On today’s episode @mikerousselldiscussed all the ways he upgrades everyday meals to make that more nutritious! Like adding protein powder to his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or replacing mayo w/ plain Greek yogurt!So many takeaways from today’s episode, definitely suggest tuning into check them all out!
Ep 7 // Whole 30
37:38On today’s episode we put Dr. Mike on the spot about a few things! 1, what are his top carbs (top 2 favorites starches and top 2 favorite veggies) then we went into supplements! What are the top supplements everyone could benefit from! I was super surprised by one of his answers! Check out the episode to find out what it was... 😏
Ep 6 // Paleo
29:27Today’s episode might have been our best one yet! 🔥We started w/ a discussion around the Paleo diet and wound up diving more into human behavior and our desire to stick within confined boundaries. The mic 🎤 was dropped when @mikeroussell said, “you don’t get bonus points for sticking to ‘the plan’ and not nourishing yourself.”✅ Our goal for the next two weeks is to take a look at our lives and question a few things...— What are we doing because we THINK we should be?Whether it’s a diet, a habit or just some routine thing you always do, question it! Is it actually helping you or are you doing it just because you think you should?It’s not just food that nourishes us. It’s relationships, habits, experience and SO much more. Just as Dr. Mike mentioned, we don’t get bonus points in life for sticking to anything because we think we should, especially when that thing is not longer (or never was!) nourishing us.
Ep 5 // Intermitent Fasting
28:47This has been a requested topic for quite some time so I was pumped to dive into it today w/ @mikeroussell 🙌 This is a must watch for anyone that’s curious about what IF is and if it’s right for you!Dr. Mike, THANK YOU yet again for such an informative discussion! SO appreciate your knowledge and love learning from you each week! 🙌 And major shoutout to @getvitahustle for setting up this platform and continuing to support these conversations! 🙏💙
Ep 4 // Veganism
28:24On today’s episode we discussed all things vegan! 🌱 Every episode I learn from @mikeroussell but this specific quote today hit me hard! It’s SO important to ask ourselves this question when we are thinking about participating in any type of food restrictions...🔑 🔑 🔑 “Are you following a vegan diet because you think it will make you healthier or do you really just need to add more vegetables into your meals?”🔑 🔑 🔑 That question is true for SO many things! Ask yourself why you are putting restrictions on the foods you eat and see if maybe there’s another way to go about it.And just FYI, I’m NOT against veganism! I’m all for anything anybody wants to do BUT I’m always going to question someone’s WHY behind it (just the same that I question myself on a daily basis!).Side note, if you are vegan and looking for a vegan protein powder, you have to try @getvitahustle vanilla! They have 🍫 too but the vanilla mixed with their reds & greens powder tastes like a 🍓 shake!! SO good!
Ep 3 // Yoyo Dieting
38:11Another great episode w/ Dr. Mike & @getvitahustle 💪 Today we continued the conversation around diets. This is a topic I feel strongly about and it was super informative to learn about how these fads/trends negatively effects our body. THANK YOU @mikeroussell🙏 We appreciate you coming in and sharing your knowledge with us!
