It's ticking. I think that means it's working. I should probably mute my computer here. 

What's up, everybody? My name is Justin Nault. I'm back for week number two of Facebook live, "Ask Me Anything." 


We're going to hit this again, and I learned some things last week about myself. Thanks for your feedback. 

A couple of things I talk fast as sh**. I talk fast. I give you a lot of information all at once, and I apologize for that. I've been deep down the rabbit hole on this nutrition and fitness mindset wellness space for so long. I forget that there's a lot of things that seem like common knowledge to me. Like, "Oh, everybody knows this." You know, but they don't. A lot of these things that I'm talking about are the first time people hear these things, and they kind of need a minute to process. 


What I found last week was a lot of the follow-up questions. Basically, asking me more questions on the same thing I said in the first episode. Apparently, when you do your first episode and tell people that fruit can kill you or cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease. Lectins and many healthy vegetables are terrible for you. Dairy will kill you. Then you let them know that there is actual paleo-friendly wine. You break their brain, and they freak out. They start writing you more questions to elaborate on the things that you said. 


Just like last week, we'll get the first things out of the way. Here's what we're gonna do. If you're looking at this Facebook live on the Clovis culture page, you can click the share button and click share now, and it will share it directly to your timeline. You can share this video so that all your friends can watch it. We can broadcast at the same time. The more people that will share, the better it's going to be. Click the like button or the little happy face or the love thing, whatever you want to do. We'll get this out of the way if this is the first time you're seeing this. 

My name is Justin Nault. I'm a Certified Nutritional Therapist, Certified Specialist in Sports Nutrition. I am the founder of a company called The Clovis Culture. I invented a line of nutritional products called The Perfect Paleo Powder. This is a weekly Q and A session that I'm going to do. It's an "Ask Me Anything." I take questions throughout the week, and at the end, we'll do a live Q and A. In the beginning, I'll probably hit like two or three topics. I've selected two or three topics leading up to this episode that was the most popular questions I got. For the first episode, the most popular questions I got were asking for clarification on some of the things I talked about last week. I'll dive into those briefly. 

I'll hit a couple of new topics on top of that. Depending on how much time we have, I don't know if I'll go an hour. The last time it was an hour. Thank you guys so much for watching. Thank you so much for sharing. I think we're at 6,000 views right now, which is just nuts. This was kind of a bit of an experiment I did. I said, "I will see how this goes." 6,000 years later, a boatload of shares and a zillion comments. It's been fantastic. Thank you, guys. I love you so much for that. That's amazing. This is like a dream for me. Let's dive into further explanations from last week. 


The big questions that I got were more about lectins. I talked about lectins, and it was the first time some people have heard that term.  

We're going to talk about lectins. We are going to talk about dairy. I'm basically going to give you a crash course on dairy today because dairy is insanely misunderstood. Nobody really knows. Is it good for you? Is it bad for you? Well, it turns out it's both, as in most foods, it's the same with meat. Is meat good for you? Is meat bad for you? It depends on where the meat comes from dairy. It depends on where the dairy comes from.

Another thing we'll talk about is pre-workout; that's why I have this awesome Clovis shirt on. No big deal, just stretching. But yeah, so red is for our pre-workout. We have a pre-workout supplement in the line of the perfect paleo powder. I'm gonna talk about why I created a pre-workout supplement. I mentioned that last week that pre-workouts are some of the most dangerous supplements on planet earth. 

They're just terrible for you. Most of them, except for ours. I'll explain why that is. Shameless promotion there. I might touch on the lifestyle a little bit because I think I got some people with the lifestyle thing. I really just hit a lot on self-discipline, which is really what it is. It's simply a choice. We have some new topics. The biggest questions I got were about alcohol. How alcohol affects this whole weight loss journey? I'll just talk about it. What alcohol does the body, and how it affects fat loss? Then we'll talk about meal prep. A lot of people need to meal prep because they have nine to five jobs and that kind of thing. You know, families, it can be really tricky. We're going to touch on those. I also want to talk about why some people lose fat faster than others, and why there are people who can lose 20 pounds in two weeks. I've seen time and time again or people that lose zero pounds in two weeks and then four weeks later lose 20 pounds. Why is that? When they're following the same protocol? 


We'll talk about all those things. As I said, let me try to slow it down just a little bit. I won't go so crazy. I drank a lot of coffee, and I had some alpha brain today from Onnit. That's some good sh**. 


Step one. Let's get into lectins. I touched on lectins and leaky gut syndrome. That's exactly what lectins do; they cause leaky gut. But before we get there, I want to explain what lectins are. Lectins are proteins. They're larger proteins. 


Real quick lesson: You share about 99% of your DNA with every living thing on planet earth. I'm going to repeat that again. You share about 99% of your DNA with every living thing on earth. 

When you look outside, you see a tree and that tree is basically you. That tree has DNA, and you have DNA. That tree has ribosomes, and you have ribosomes. You can read each other's DNA. Literally, it's insane. So the building blocks of life are called amino acids. Everything is made up of amino acids. That's when you talk about branch chain amino acids or amino acid profiles and vegetables versus meat. When vegetarian says, "Well, they're all complete proteins". In vegetables, complete protein means it includes all essential and non-essential amino acids. Amino acids, tiny little proteins, and they pieced together like Legos. Now they build together, literally, just like Legos to form proteins. So amino acids collect like Legos, build proteins, proteins get bigger, collect like Legos, bigger, bigger, bigger, and they build all your tissues. They develop your muscle tissue, your hair, your skin, your organs, your bone. This is all tissue. It's all made up of amino acids. 

Lectins are just one type of protein, and the most famous is gluten. Gluten is a lectin. Gluten is a protein, and you're talking about people with celiac disease. They avoid gluten, and gluten-free became this huge trend because you can lose weight and a gluten-free diet. Unless you start eating boxed gluten-free garbage. Don't do that. Gluten is the most famous. It gets all the terrible rap, but there are a lot of lectins that are every bit as damaging as gluten, if not more damaging. What a lectin does is it looks just like a normal protein. A normal protein that your body would allow through the lining of the gut and into the bloodstream to help fuel yourselves and build more tissue. Right? It has a really hard time telling the difference. 

Lectins are proteins found in plants, and it's actually found in some animal products as well. But there are lectins in plants that are the most damaging. They are weapons for the plant. If you're a plant and you're sitting there, and basically everything that walks by you wants to eat you. What's your defence mechanism if you don't have one? Well, all living things have defence mechanisms, every single one. They protect themselves in extraordinary ways. Certain seeds get a Fox to eat them. The fox will carry it three miles, and suddenly, it will get really sick. It will throw this thing up at the foot of a tree. That tree goes into the soil, and the seed absorbs the root's soil and feeds the tree. It's really insane. There are so many vegetables that have these tools; they're weapons to protect themselves. 


I'll give you an example. 

The Acacia Bush 

If you have a line of Acacia bushes set up and a giraffe starts eating one. Then goes down the line, eating, they will send chemical messages to each other. To the point whereby the time the giraffe gets to that last plant, that plant is very bitter, and it doesn't want to eat it. This is how these species survive, and it's their only defence mechanism. Lectins are weapons. They are meant to harm you, and that's what they want to do. They're cellular disruptors. They affect your immune system and your sympathetic, parasympathetic nervous system. They just disrupt communication between your neurons. It's really crazy. Lectins are awful for you. But one of the main things they do is causing inflammation in the gut, and they take this lining of your gut. They just kind of sneak in, undetected, as if they're a normal protein. Your body doesn't know the difference until it's too late. Now you get these lectins that are in your bloodstream. Once they're in your bloodstream, and the body realizes, "Oh." It almost scans it a barcode, "boop, that's not supposed to be here. Call the troops." 


It literally manifests an army like a response to the site of this intruder and tries to destroy the intruder. Now, what's the problem with this? The lectin looks a lot like healthy proteins that would help you build tissues. So the body attacks itself. It can't tell the difference between the bad lectin protein and the normal healthy protein. It starts attacking itself. This is the definition of an autoimmune response. Autoimmune is the body attacking itself because there is something in the system that shouldn't be there. It's messing things up. It's like a computer virus. You slip a virus into a new computer, undetected. The next thing you know, you can wipe out the whole system. 


People are eating these foods that are very high in lectins. Now, I'm talking about vegetables, but what we need to get to is the idea of healthy whole grain, right? Healthy whole grains. I don't even like using the words. I'll just need to do rabbit ears every time. Healthy whole grains and healthy beans. Black beans and legumes and all this. They're the biggest offenders of lectins. They literally are not fit for human consumption. They're just not. The science on this is irrefutable; unless you prepare them in a way like for beans, you could soak beans overnight night in cold water, hot water. Whatever you want to do, soak them overnight and then cook them at very high temperatures. You'll get most of the lectins out. Now the bean becomes edible. I don't know about you, but that seems like a lot of work to me, so I just don't eat beans. 


That's kind of a crash course on lectins, but with the healthy whole grains, again, I'm gonna keep doing this because I just don't eat whole grains. There are three main types of really bad lectins. Whole grains contain all three, some vegetables contain one, some fruits contain one or two. These healthy whole grains contain all three of the most damaging lectins. They shred the lining of your gut. They cause leaky gut and cause autoimmune disease. That's why you'll have somebody who's like, "I've had eczema my entire life. My dermatologist gives me steroid injections."

You pull a person off grains for a month, and their eczema goes away, and they're freaking out; why? Because they're stopping you on an immune response right from happening. That's what lectins are, and that's just kind of a quick rundown. 


I had a question, and I think Jackie asked me about the raw food movement. I'm pretty sure that was Jackie. There are a lot of people that are advocating this raw food diet, and I get it. It's totally cool. I like the idea because they're talking about whole, unprocessed foods. Whole, unprocessed foods are the only thing you can and eat raw to be healthy. I had a cousin who did a raw food diet for a while. The problem with the raw food diet is cooking methods really help with lectins. They really, really do. A lot of these lectins can be cooked out of food. 

You know, raw kale, not awesome for you. Cooked kale, wonderful for you. As I said, beans prepared incorrectly; you shouldn't even eat it. Beans that have been soaked and cooked at high temperatures and removed lectin are probably pretty safe. They're probably a good source of complex carbohydrates and fiber. The raw diet is it's a little bit misguided if you asked me. Again, it's hard. I don't want to put it down just because it's so much better than a standard Western diet. If you're going from, you know, fast food and Chinese takeout to a raw diet, I'm all about that. Do it, stick with it, you know? But that's the problem that I really see with the raw diet is just, you're going to get a ton of lectins. A ton of lectins in fruit. The raw diet, all about fruit. 

It's like the same with the alkaline diet. People talk about the alkaline diet and it's very difficult to affect the acidity of your blood. They test the alkaline diet using pee strips, which is insane because that is a waste product. It's not measuring what's in your blood at all, but that's a whole different story. But fruit, fructose, a ton of sugar, a ton of carbohydrates, a ton of lectins. This is where the raw diet kind of gets things wrong a little bit. So that's basically a breakdown of what lectins are. They're proteins that sneak into your body unannounced. They're not supposed to be there. They cause leaky gut. They cause autoimmune disease, and they cause severe problems. The biggest offenders for lectins are healthy whole grains (they're not healthy at all!). Whole grains, legumes are terrible. Uh, fruits are pretty nasty. Anything with seeds, anything with seeds, is technically considered a fruit. 

A lot of vegetables and nightshades. Nightshades are really bad for this. Nightshades, literally meaning darker, you know, peppers and that kind of thing. Peppers, tomatoes, all those loaded with lectins. Nightshades are the worst offenders. Whole grains, beans, nightshades, if you're having issues like acne or eczema or arthritis or fibromyalgia, all these inflammatory diseases, they're autoimmune diseases. You can solve them pretty quickly through lifestyle changes. That's the straight scoop on lectins. 


The other thing that people want to clarification on last week was dairy. I mentioned dairy kind of briefly, but I don't remember how deep I went in with dairy. There are a lot of people that say dairy is healthy. There are a lot of people that say dairy will kill you. I'm on the "kill you" side of the fence, but with a caveat. There is healthy dairy, and there's a very unhealthy dairy that is basically like poison. This all happened from evolution. About 2000 years ago, there was a gene expression that occurred in cows. There's a normal casein protein. Casein is a milk protein. There's casein a2 that what's most cows produce, and it's actually what most Eastern European cows created, right? They have casein a2, and there's this weird genetic change in certain breeds of cows that made them start producing casein a1. Now they're segregated as you have dairy, that's casein a1, and you have dairy casein a2. 


Casein a1 contains a casein lectin protein in the casein a1. So we go back to lectins from lesson number one that we just talked about. There's also a lectin that contains casein a1 milk protein. Now, this is a particularly scary lectin because this attacks your pancreas. 

If you don't know what the pancreas does, it is in charge of insulin production. Insulin is the magic word in what? Type two diabetes. So you have this lectin protein that contains casein a1 dairy that can attack your pancreas and literally call as type two diabetes. The funny thing is if you're lactose intolerant and you move to Europe, you probably won't struggle with dairy. You really won't. It's primarily a2 cows out there. Now, Americans do mostly feedlot stuff, and all the feedlot cattle dairy is casein a1. You really, really want to avoid it. It's straight-up poison. I talked about dairy like the Kerrygold with grass-fed butter. I'm a big fan of them. Now, this comes from cows in Ireland. They are a2 cows, and the butter creation process removes most of the casein anyway. It removes most of the casein and lactose. Lactose intolerant people usually are okay with something like grass-fed butter. 


To be clear, you can get casein a2 dairy, whole foods from Turnip Truck here in Nashville, and at Trader Joe's, places like that where you can find a2 dairy. If you have a problem with dairy, there are so many people that I've got their diet clean. I don't get this, but I've gotten their diet clean, and they have eczema or something. They still have an autoimmune response. They do not want to give up dairy cheese or cheese. It's always cheese, man. People love cheese, and they love their milk. They don't want to give it up. I get it. 


The other thing that I suggest to them is if you can't find a2 dairy, you want to try to hunt down dairy that's from goat's milk or sheep's milk. Nothing drives me crazier than when I say to switch from cows to goat milk or sheep milk, and people go, "Ewww, that's gross. I'm don't want to have goat milk. That's gross." Have you ever seen a cow udder, really? Like in real life, have you ever seen a cow udder? Yeah. It's gross. Milk is milk, right? It really doesn't taste different. If I give you goat cheese or sheep cheese next to cow or whatever, you're not going to move the difference. It's not a big deal. That's the biggest thing you can do if you don't want to give up dairy, try giving up dairy. Try to give it up for like 30 days. Really just do away with it. 

If you absolutely love it, and want to keep your dairy, then go with a2 dairy. If you can hunt it down, it's probably not going to be at like a Kroger or something like that. It's probably going to be at a health food grocer where you can find a2 dairy, goats milk, sheep's milk, grass-fed butter, Kerrygold. As I said, Kerrygold also makes cheese, so there is such a thing as grass-fed cheese. Those are cheese from grass-fed cows. Kerrygold cheeses are delicious. It's probably my favorite cheese that I've ever had. You can hunt down Kerrygold cheese, Kerrygold butter, a2 dairy, goat's milk, sheep's milk dairy. I'd like to say the other thing because I just dropped a lot of things about Kerrygold and stuff like that. 


I've also set up a page. My website is I'm going to do these AMAs every week, and then the next day, a blog post will go up. It's going to have the video embedded even if you don't have a Facebook. A lot of people got pissed at me because they're like, "Dude, I don't have Facebook, and I heard you're doing these things." I'm like, okay, cool. So I embedded it on this blog post, so you can watch it without a Facebook account. I'm going to put timestamps so you can see like, "Oh, we talked about intermittent fasting at 20 minutes, and you can check that out". I'm going to have links to all the resources that I named throughout the video. So if I name a book, or a brand or a name Kerrygold butter, right? I'll give you a link to that. 


That's a crash course on lectins and dairy. I know the dairy thing is kind of tricky. I just wanted to explain it the best way that I could. Maybe go back and listen to that a couple of times once this video is posted. It's very important. It really, really is. It's one of the worst offenders for food sensitivities in America today, and people don't want to give it up. I don't understand that mindset; if something's making you sick, just be done with it. 


The other thing that people wanted clarification on talked about lectins talked about dairy. Number three, the reason why I'm wearing this amazing red shirt is that we're going to talk about pre-workout supplements. Pre-workout supplements are awful. You shouldn't use them unless they're mine. I don't care what that sounds like. 

Don't use a pre-workout unless it's mine or it's a cup of black coffee. Those are your options for pre-workouts, seriously. Try your old pre-workout for a day; the next day, you try my pre-workout. If you don't like it better, just hit me up on Facebook. Whatever. I'll give you your money back. I will give you double your money back if you don't like it better than my pre-workout. I'm telling you right now, it's that much of a difference. Let's talk about why pre-workouts are so, so scary. In my work as a nutritional therapist, I kept getting this question over and over because I recommend a ton of products. I know a boatload about supplements. There are many fantastic brands of supplements that aren't my brand that I absolutely love, and I think everybody should be taking them. There are fantastic out there. 


Pre-workouts, there are no fantastic products out there until I launched this one. The issue with pre-workouts is the whole point is to get you jacked, to get you so hyped up, that you can muscle your way through a workout that you can't normally do. Then I get people who have been doing CrossFit for three years, and they come to talk to me. If they're driving to the gym and forgot their pre-workout at home, they like they have a panic attack. They say, "how am I going to get this workout? I'm gonna get this workout." And they're like, I don't have my pre-workout, and they get in their own head. It's like cigarettes, man. They get an addiction to pre-workout, or there are all these memes floating around on Instagram of like faces of people just like, "Oh, what happens when the pre-workout kicks in?" They're going crazy because I will tell you the ingredients that make you feel that crazy jitter, crazy, whatever. 


What's you're asking for is putting yourself in a mindset that is asking for injury. There is nothing I hate more than injuries in fitness. Are you getting paid for your fitness? No, you're not getting paid. Don't hurt yourself, dummy. It is not worth it. That's one of the things that I don't understand about specific methodologies of fitness. Why are you willing to hurt yourself? Pre-workout is a quick way to get injured because you will run in there like Arnold Schwarzenegger in commando. You just start kicking stuff and throwing weights around like you're a 200-pound bad-ass. It's just not smart, right? 

We'll talk about some of the most dangerous ingredients in pre-workouts. 

  1. Aspartame.

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener. Aspartame is famous for a diet Coke, Coke, zero diet Pepsi, any diet soda drink that you find is containing aspartame. Aspartame is horrendous. Aspartame destroys your gut microbiome, which by the way, is where most of your serotonin is made. It has been linked directly with depression. It's been linked directly with Alzheimer's disease. It is a neurological disruptor, and this thing is terrible. It attacks your nervous system. Aspartame will napalm your gut microbiome, crush your serotonin production, and will destroy brain function. You're going to have brain fog. It's just terrible for you. And here's a crazy statistic. If you take all the foods, we talked about dairy, lectins, grains. We've already talked about all this stuff, right? If a human being eats food and they have an adverse reaction to that food. Let's say it's so negative that they have to go to the hospital. 75% of all negative food reactions in this country are a result of aspartame. Okay? 75% of all negative food reactions are a result of that aspartame. This is still legally allowed for human consumption. It's staggering. Aspartame number one, first and foremost, if you pick up a pre-workout supplement and there's aspartame in it, get rid of it. If you look at your pre-workout in your house and it has aspartame in it, and you think you don't want to waste that money. You'll say, "I'm just going to finish this pre-workout." No, just throw it in the garbage. I will buy you a new one, literally. Aspartame, the first one you want to watch out for.


Number two, and, conveniently, I'm wearing a shirt. 

  1. Artificial dyes and colorings.

You'll see a lot of branch chain amino acids do this. Many pre-workout supplements do this where their ingredients are Red 45, blue 42, red 47. It sounds like Peyton Manning calling out plays or something. It's like, what the hell? What are all these red dyes? What is this sh**? Why is this in my pre-workout supplement? We don't even know what they are. They're just synthetic chemicals that are neurological disruptors and nervous system disruptors. That's another reason why you feel so anxious, jitter, crazy because it's affecting your sympathetic nervous system. 


You want to avoid aspartame, any artificial colorings, right? 

The third one, these are referred to as DMAAs, I believe. 

  1. Amphetamines 

But they're really just amphetamines. What you have to look out for is they're labelled in a lot of different ways. They're a ton of amphetamines, think methamphetamine, right? You don't probably don't want to do methamphetamine. You probably just don't want to have amphetamines in your system, but you have to be careful how they're labelled, which brings me to another thing. This has been taught a lot. A of health people talk about this, like personal trainers and stuff. If you can't pronounce something that's on a label, you probably shouldn't be putting it in your body. That's the same thing with these amphetamines. Just for fun, I wrote down a couple of amphetamines that are notoriously in pre-workout supplements. I'm going to try to read them to you. This is how bad it is. All right. Let me see here. Pre-workouts; amphetamines. I wrote it under amphetamines: methyl, Hixon, a mine, methyl Hexham and methyl. Methylhexanamine. I think I got it right. See, solid, right? Insane. 

Next one. Die. Methyl, lamb. Malema Nene, dimethyl Loma lamb Mean doc. This is insane, right? Why would you put that in your body? Let's just start there. If you're looking at a word and you're trying to sound it out the best that you can. Like your third-grade teacher taught you how to: when you learn how to read, and you just can't do it, like I just failed. Don't put it in your body. Period. That's insane. I don't care if your CrossFit coach with 12 pack abs was like, "This is my pre-workout. I take C4. You do it too." That guy's a dummy. Don't listen to that guy. Don't put it in your body. Poison, poison, poison, poison, throw it away. Okay?


So you talked about aspartame, amphetamines, dyes. The other big offender is caffeine. 


Now to be clear, I don't have a problem with caffeine. 

  1. Caffeine

I think coffee is a superfood. It's one of the healthiest foods we have. In fact, almost all of the antioxidants in the American diet come from chocolate and coffee. Literally, I eat dark chocolate every day. I drink coffee every single day. Now, notice I'm not saying I get a double shot of mocha, caramel latte, white chocolate frappe, a bull****. I don't buy that. You can get black coffee, drink as much as you want of it. Literally, some studies show five to six cups a day actually have a ton of health benefits and dark chocolate. Anything over 80% cacao, dark chocolate is a superfood, loaded with any oxidants loaded with fiber. To be clear, I don't have a problem with caffeine, right? Caffeine isn't the issue. The problem is when you take 500 milligrams of caffeine, and you take powdered synthetic caffeine. And you say, "we're going to throw 500 milligrams. This person's going to feel so jacked. They think they're Superman, and they can jump off a building." 


It's just not smart. I said, you're going to go, and you're going to get injured. You're going to be jittery. Your hand-eye coordination is going to be jacked. Your sympathetic nervous system is through the roof. That's the real issue. Caffeine, I don't have a problem with. I have a problem when you're talking 200, 300, 400, 500 milligrams, right? You can't have that stuff in your system. You're going to start causing problems, especially when it's not from whole foods. 


Let me talk to you about my pre-workout for a second. Mine does contain caffeine. It has 150 milligrams of caffeine from ground whole coffee beans. We take whole coffee beans, grind them into a powder and give you 150 milligrams of caffeine. 

To give you an example. 

A regular cup of coffee from Starbucks has 380 milligrams of caffeine on average. Between pike roast or blonde roast or whatever, you're looking at 380 milligrams of caffeine per cup of Starbucks coffee on average. I have 150 per serving, and it's from whole coffee beans, right? It's less than half of a cup of coffee. You don't need all the other nonsense. You don't need to spike yourself to be all of a sudden, you hoke out. You just don't want to do that. Okay? 


Now, the other problematic ingredient is something called Yohimbine. 

  1. Yohimbine

If you were ever a teenage boy reading muscle and fitness magazine or men's health, you probably have heard of Yohimbine. Why? Because Yohimbine is an Eastern herb that is used to treat erectile dysfunction. That's the main thing in Chinese medicine. Now, all these pre-workout supplements were like, "Oh, this increases blood flow." That's the idea, right? Increased blood flow. They take this Yohimbine, and they load it into these pre-workout supplements. 


To be clear, all these ingredients that I've talked about, these products pulled from the shelves. They're products that get banned. They get banned from GNC. They get banned from vitamin shop. You'll see a new pre-workout pop up that everybody loves, "Oh my God, this is insane. I had the best work out of my life. This is incredible." Three months later, it's gone, and you can't find it anywhere. It was probably amphetamines, Yohimbine, or an unhealthy amount of caffeine. 


That's the fifth ingredient that we get to, Yohimbine Bay. Yohimbine is such a serious blood flow activator that you can have a stroke if you take too much of it. You could have a stroke; you can have a heart attack. I have already talked about the sympathetic nervous system. Yohimbine is probably the biggest offender for this. Yohimbine, caffeine, and amphetamines. It's a deadly dose. These freaking pre-workouts, I can't believe they get sold, right? You're going to spike your sympathetic nervous system. 


The sympathetic nervous system is your fight or flight, right? That's if somebody comes up and punches you in the face, your sympathetic nervous system is going to go through the roof. Your body's going to decide real quick what it needs to do to survive. This is a stressful situation. Your sympathetic nervous system reacts to stress. If your sympathetic nervous system is spiked, you're stressed. The parasympathetic nervous system is your digest and rest. This is why I named my product digest and rest. One of the perfect paleo powders is called digest and rest. It is for people to heal, right? 


Parasympathetic nervous system - digest and rest. 

Sympathetic nervous system - when you talk about amphetamines, caffeine, or Yohimbine, you are spiking the sympathetic nervous system. 


Your fight or flight is going to be on all the time. This is where things like roid rage happen. People talk about roid rage like, "Oh my God, my boyfriend lives weights. And he keeps punching holes in the wall. I don't know why." He probably doesn't even take steroids. He's just taking a freaking crappy pre-workout. All of a sudden, his sympathetic nervous system is through the roof as if you just get out of a war zone. He gets home, and you left your clothes on the floor, and he's like, "dynamite" and punches a hole in the wall. You're like, "Hey, dummy stopped taking C4 pre-workout." It's terrible for you. 


Those are the five ingredients: 


Dyes and colorings, 





These are the five most problematic that I see in pre-workouts. There's a ton of other ones in pre-workout, but those are the most troublesome that I see. 


Quick rundown. My pre-workout doesn't use any of those, except for caffeine. As I said, we have less than half a cup of Starbucks coffee in our pre-workout. 150 milligrams of caffeine from whole ground coffee beans. Then we also use six grams of branched chain amino acids. Acids are the building blocks of life. These branch chain amino acids are the ones that can most readily be used for energy. That can be burned for energy almost instantaneously. The branch chain amino acids will help you get through your workout because it's giving you another source of energy. You get a tiny little smooth feeling from your 150 milligrams of caffeine. Then we take vitamin B3, also known as niacin. We give you 125% of your daily dose based on RDA, the regular daily dose of B3. You get 50% of all your other B vitamins. It's essentially a B vitamin complex, a minimal dose of caffeine, less than half a cup of coffee, six grams of branched chain, amino acids. Then you have our beef collagen peptide. You have 10 grams of protein in there as well. It's a fantastic product. 


We have a comparison page. I'll still show you guys a link to this, but we have infographics on how we compare to other competitors. It's just a list of what we include and what they include. It's staggering. I can't even compare the two; it's my product and my bias. Yes. But is this still factual? Yes, 100%. I promise you a money-back guarantee. You can try it. That's how our pre-workout differs from other pre-workouts. These are the topics we touched on last time, lectins, dairy, and pre-workouts. 


Now I just wanted to elaborate on those, and we're already 33 minutes. These things fly by, man. I need to remember that we're going to do this every week because I get on here, and I want to just brain dump and tell you everything that I know, but I'd keep you here for decades. 


Let's talk about new topics. This is another Jackie one. 

"Jackie, you're the best."  


We are going to talk about meal prep. Jackie, let's touch on that because many people are very busy. They have kids, they have nine to five jobs. Thankfully I don't know what a nine to five is. I've never been there, but I'd imagine it's pretty difficult. I try to help people as much as I can, having never been in that scenario where I have to take food to an office place or something like that or decide what to have for lunch every day. 


Let's talk about meal prep, right? Cooking methods. First and foremost, meal prep tends to mean the same thing among all Americans. I don't get it. Meal prep is always broccoli and chicken, and a lot of times, rice. Broccoli, chicken, rice meal prep. I don't get it. Just the rice, ditch the chicken. Chicken is even worse than feedlot cattle. It's like one chicken breast can have the same amount of estrogen as five birth control pills. They're really raised terribly unless you can get pasture-raised chickens. Meaning, you're going to have to go to a farm to get the actual pasture-raised meat. You have to go to a farm where you know the farmer. Chicken lean protein, you're not getting healthy fats. Stick with grass-fed beef, wild-caught salmon, things like that. 


Let's just talk about that first and foremost. What meat should you be prepping? A wild-caught fish of any kind. I'm a huge fan. Grass-fed beef, go ahead and do it. If you can get pastured chickens, go ahead and get pastured chickens. Taking food with you in terms of snacks. I'm talking about macadamia nuts, pecans, avocados. Avocados can be a little tough to eat sometimes in public. Unless, if you don't mind people looking at you eating an avocado. 


Those are the things you can bring with you. When you're meal prepping, let's say you're doing grass-fed beef or doing salmon. I don't recommend the approach of this seven-day thing. Sometimes you'll see these bodybuilding people on Instagram or whatever, and they take a picture. It's a sprawling picture of their kitchen table. They have 21 Tupperware containers lined up. They're like meal prep for the week. Don't do that, man. I get that it's making things convenient. But by Friday, Saturday, you're, you're eating very questionable food at that point. You really are. Whether you have it in the refrigerator or not, that's getting a little hairy. I don't think that I would trust that outside of three days. 


I wouldn't do meal prep more than like two or three days. You're talking maybe two pounds of grass-fed beef or something like that. Or two pounds worth of wild-caught salmon and a few pounds of broccoli. You know, something like that, stick with complex carbohydrates. You can make some sweet potatoes, you know, maybe, bake a sweet potato for minutes. Then when you're at work, bake another two and a half for three minutes. I cook with cast iron. I love cast iron. I cook everything on cast iron. I sear a lot of meat. There are many health people who tell you not to sear your meats because it causes carcinogens or whatever. Maybe that's a vice of mine. I don't know. It's grass-fed beef, so if I cook it too much, whatever, I can live with that. 


I also bake with cast iron. Sometimes it's really nice to heat up your cast iron and throw two pounds of grass-fed beef in a cast iron. You could cook it at a low temperature if you want to, maybe two 225 in the oven. You are going to have to microwave this stuff, right? If you go to the office place or something and you need to microwave it, you don't want to be cooking all the nutrients out of it. You're just slightly undercooking everything. I prefer cast iron, but stainless steel is also a good option. What you want to be careful about is a lot of non-stick pans. Non-stick pans are a great invention, but unfortunately, they use many toxic chemicals leaching into your food. You don't really want to use non-stick pans. 


I would use stainless steel, or I would use cast iron. If you're worried about sticking, I would recommend avocado oil. It is the best option for cooking because it has a smoke point of like 500 degrees. 


Let me give you an example like unrefined coconut oil. I think it has a smoke point of like 300. If you heat it up too high, it's going to smoke on you. It'll smoke out your kitchen, you know? It'll pop and snap at you, ruin your clothes and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Avocado oil, cast iron or stainless steel, bake at a low temperature or serious stuff. That's totally fine too. Steam your vegetables. Always steam your vegetables. Get a steam basket and steam them in a pot—a little bit of boiling water at the bottom. Don't use steam fresh bags. 


So like I talked about, I have an article on my website that I'll link to called Your Microwave is Killing You. Just kidding. I went down the rabbit hole on microwave technology one day and just really, really wanted to get this figured out. Our microwave is terrible for you because I was reheating my coffee. My coffee gets cold while I'm answering emails or something. I would heat it for 35 seconds. I'm like, "Oh, am I melting my brain?" Now I never suggest cooking with a microwave. This is what I discovered, and that's the conclusion of the article. If you're reheating your coffee for 30 seconds, not a big deal. If you cook some food beforehand and you want to heat it up at work so you can eat it, not a big deal, but don't cook in the microwave. 


It's not the microwave that's dangerous. It's what you cook things in. If you take a steam fresh plastic bag, I don't care what Mr Green giant tells you that it is a healthy bag. He's full of sh**, right? If you're steaming your vegetables in a plastic bag, you're eating plastic. Don't eat plastic. Pyrex glass dishes, glass Tupperware, that's what you want. Anything you are reheating in or storing in must be glass; get glass. 


Question: What about freezing ahead of time instead of staying them in the fridge? 

Answer: Yeah. Yeah. If you want to freeze, that's totally cool. That's another option. If you want it to meal prep for like a week. And you wanted to maybe have three of them in the fridge or two days worth in the fridge. You know, on the second day, you pull out two more days, and you let them frost in the fridge or whatever, then you reheat them in the microwave. That's great. That's a great idea. Yeah, I like that. 

Excellent question. Thanks for touching on that. The other thing with meal prep is simplicity. I have another article that's called Simplicity: Why can paleo be so overwhelming? I'm going to put that in the show notes. I'm going to make a show notes page for this episode tomorrow. AI wrote this simplicity article because this is where it gets weird. I have a section of my webpage called "The Perfect Palette". The Perfect Palette is our paleo recipe. Now what you will notice is there's not a single recipe on there that would take you more than five minutes to create, literally. This is what I’ll talk about in the simplicity thing. There's something I call paleo overwhelm. 

I'm just deciding that I create terms now; that's what I do. So one of my terms is paleo overwhelmed. What is paleo overwhelm? A lot of times, you say you're going to go paleo, and you're going through the grocery store. You have this list that you printed out. If you guys, anybody who wants an approved foods list, I'll put it on the show notes too. I made my own approved foods list that I think is the best one. So if you're going through the grocery store, a lot of times, you're in sections of the grocery store you've never even been in. This is new to you. It's a little overwhelming. You're like, "Whoa, I don't know what these foods are. What's a pasture-raised egg versus a free-range egg. What is this?" Little overwhelming, right? Then you get home, and you realize I have to cook all my own meals for myself because you can't really go grab a quick bite. It's not just healthy, right?


Now, I have to cook all my own meals, and I haven't really cooked that much in my life. Overwhelm number two, grocery lists, 


Overwhelm number one - grocery lists 

Overwhelm number two - I have to cook. 

Overwhelm number three - I have to cook for myself, better, get a recipe.

Then you Google, you're making the biggest mistake of your life. You Google paleo recipes. You were hit in the face with 50 million different recipes that are like, you need organic nutmeg and thyme, and you need almond flour. And now you need a little bit of flaxseed, and you need orange zest, and you need a lemon peel. And you're like, "what the hell is this? Are you kidding me?" And then anytime I look at a paleo recipe, it's like prep time is 35 minutes and cooking time is 44 minute. Go to hell, dude. I'm not using your recipe because nobody has time for that. That's insane, right? 


Paleo recipe discovery and paleo recipe cookbooks are among the fastest ways to fail because people decide if I'm going to be paleo. Every meal I do has to be a paleo recipe. It is a huge problem. Why would you do that to yourself? You don't have time for that. I cook three meals a day for myself, and it takes me a total of 30 minutes. There's not a single meal I make for myself that takes more than 10 minutes. Unless I'm hosting, if I'm having my family over for Sunday dinner or something, sure. I might go all out and make paleo desserts and do all that. I might take the time to do that. But if I'm just trying to eat and live a healthy lifestyle, I don't have time for hour-long recipes. I'm not going to do that, right? 


Keep it simple. The simpler you can make these recipes, the better. For example, in the article, I was like, "Hey, here's a recipe for paleo breakfast. Throw some eggs in a pan. Mix them around a little bit till they're fluffy. You're done now. Paleo dinner, steam some broccoli, throw some meat in the pan, stir it around a little bit till it's not pink anymore. You're done." That's your meal, done. That's it. You can use whatever seasonings you want. You can't use whatever marinades or anything you want. That gets tricky. I'll give you secrets: oregano, basil, sea salt, rosemary and coconut aminos. I'll give you a link to coconut aminos. Coconut aminos are the greatest thing in the history of the world. I use them for everything. Coconut aminos, rosemary, oregano, basil, sea salt. That's all you need to cook anything for the rest of your life. 

Cook some eggs, throw a bit of kale in there. Similarly, the kale on the pan, toss the eggs on top of that, then mix it around. Throw some sauerkraut in there if you want to get crazy. Just keep it very simple. None of these meals should take you more than 10 minutes. If you go out and say, "I'm going to go paleo", and you buy yourself a paleo cookbook, you're going to be in trouble. You're going to get real tired of following instructions and following these recipes; just learn it. What I call single ingredient foods, right? 


Grass-fed beef, broccoli, eggs,. Just take single ingredient foods, throw them in a pan and mix them around. Throw some seasoning on there and see what you like. Just experiment a little bit. This should be fun. It should be fun and should be quick. You're trying to fuel your body in a healthy, sustainable way. 


Question: Black Pepper?

Answer: Yeah, sure. Go for black pepper. Black pepper is actually a bio nutrient meaning it can actually help you absorb nutrients better. Black pepper for certain things is excellent. Black pepper on eggs. Awesome. Black pepper on the meat. Awesome. Yeah. Black pepper is totally cool. 


When I say any seasoning, you can literally use any seasoning you want except for seasoning blends. If you go say, wait, Justin said any seasoning, and then you grab McCormick mixed grill, master, whatever. There are three different types of sugar in there. Now you're in trouble, you know? Again, single ingredients. Buy oregano, basil, black pepper, or rosemary. Don't get a blend that throws maltodextrin and sucrose and all these other stuff in there. Read the ingredients and labels. Get single ingredient seasonings, and you're going to be okay, and then coconut aminos, my favorite thing in the world. 


Meal prep was another question we had. We touched on glass Tupperware. Only use the microwave for reheating. Don't cook in the microwave. 


The other big one, this is a fan favorite, right? Alcohol. Where does alcohol stand in the grand scheme of these things? I went through this last week. This is a giant bar that I have. That's awesome. You have Ben cumin. What did I say? That's a single ingredient; use that. You're fine. So this is my bar, right? And alcohol, alcohol is a big deal, right? I've been a musician for 15 years. I got a heavy history with alcohol, right? Everybody wants to know how alcohol affects this stuff. If I put you on a protocol. Let's say the only beverages you can drink are green tea, black coffee and water because that's my protocol, right? Those are the only beverages that you can drink. Two weeks in, you're doing great, and then you have a company Christmas party. You have three glasses of wine and a shot of Jack Daniels, and you think that you've ruined everything. You haven't ruined everything. 


I need to take a two-pronged approach to this because you have to decide what you're looking for. 


One, alcohol is a toxin. It's always going to be a toxin, most notably, a neurotoxin. Alcohol will cause brain fog. Alcohol will not make you fat. Now let me be clear on this. Beer is not alcohol; Jack and Coke is not alcohol. You see what I'm saying? These have added ingredients that are not alcohol. I'm talking about distilled alcohol, vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey. These things will not make you fat. It doesn't work that way. So, but you have to drink them by themselves, that's the thing. 


Now they are a neurotoxin. It will give you brain fog. You might feel crappy the next day, but you're not going to ruin your fat loss. The only time when this is a little bit different is that toxins are stored in fat, okay? I'll jump there in a second, but alcohol is always going to be a toxin. If your only goal is to lose fat, it's really not going to mess things up for you. Two drinks, three drinks, whatever. Don't go out and have 10 because your body's just not going to work correctly. You are poisoning your body. It's not going to work as efficiently as it should at anything. Fat-burning, muscle building, focus or any of these things are going to be hurt by these toxins. All right? 


Alcohol is a toxin; get that through your head. That's very important. Anytime you make that decision, it's definitely going to be a little bit of a problem. On the fat side of this, don't worry about it making you fat. What makes you fat is Coca-Cola, tonic water. I hate that tonic water is called tonic water. Why? Just call it sugar. It is just sugar, right? You have two options. When you're in a bar or a restaurant, you can mix vodka, gin, tequila, or whiskey with two things, water or soda water. That is it! You don't get Granity, don't get simple syrup, don't get lime juice because you don't know what that lime juice is actually is. Ask for a lime wedge; that's cool. Those are your only options: water, soda water, and straight liquor. I'm not talking flavoured liquor either. When I tell you you can drink vodka, don't get whipped cream flavoured vodka and tell me, "Well, Justin, I drink vodka and got fat." No, you didn't drink vodka; you drank some other sh**, you know? Distilled liquor is really not a big deal. 

The other company that I brought up last week, a friend of mine, Todd White and dry farm wines, right? I even took this out, right? This is a dry farm wine. Dry farm wines are imported from European vineyards. In America, we have much less regulation on what goes into the wine. There are 76 known carcinogens. These are cancer-causing agents that are allowed in American wine and are not permitted in European wine. This is why a company like dry farm wines is so valuable because they're giving you lines that are free from all these toxins that you usually have to worry about. They have less alcohol, less sugar, so for all dry farm wines, one glass is less than a gram of sugar. 

A typical American wine, even a dry red wine, will have about four grams of sugar per glass. Little less alcohol, slightly less sugar is much better for you. That's just an option because I know people love wine. I don't want to take one away from people. I love wine, and I have a subscription for dry farm wines. They're great. So that's an option. 


You have the wines, and you have straight liquor, a lot of good Jenn tequila whiskey. If you're at home, the other thing you remember is if you're having a party or something we talked about this last week is LaCroix Zevia. These are all options for you for mixers. If you're at home, do it. You know, vodka LaCroix is excellent. You can make a Jack and ZB. It's going to taste just like a Jack and Coke. It's going to be delicious, right? But you're not killing yourself with it. You can do these things. It's just when you're out and about in a bar or something, really soda water or water. Those are really your only two options. 


Alcohol by itself is not going to make you fat. I want to touch on this toxins thing because before we run out of time here. What happens is sometimes I'll get a client that I'll put on the same protocol as the next client. One client in two weeks loses 20 pounds. Another client in two weeks loses three pounds, and they've gone well, "Justin, you're full of sh**. This doesn't work right." And I'm going, "okay, just stick with me here. Please just stick with me here." I'm asking for that reason. I'm asking you to do that. I'm asking you to trust me because there's a trigger point for everyone. I was explaining this to a really close friend of mine this past week. Where this trigger point comes from is how unhealthy your body was internally before you started this process. I went over this last week. 


If you're obese, I don't care what you look like naked. I don't care about a bikini. I don't care about six-pack abs. I care how healthy you are on the inside. I care how long you're going to live. If you're obese, you're ill, your body is ill. You have to think of it like an illness that you need to cure, right? Everybody's going to take a different length of time for this illness to heal. Let me tell you one of the crazy reasons why that is. Let's say you're a heavy, heavy drinker, and you eat a lot of fast food, and you have high visceral fat. So there's subcutaneous fat. Like if I go like this and try to try to grab fat, right? This is subcutaneous fat that's outside of my muscle. It's a muscle and then fat after that, right? If I have a big beer belly, you'll see many of them call them beer belly for a reason. A lot of old men will be skinny. They might look like this up top. Then they just had this belly, and the belly is rock solid, right? That is visceral fat because the fat is behind their muscles; it's underneath their muscles. This is the most dangerous type of fat because it surrounds your organs. It can literally suffocate your organs. Here's how this goes even deeper. This is crazy to think about. As I said, alcohol is a toxin. 

If you're a heavy drinker, you have a lot of toxins in your system. Do you know where toxins are stored? Toxins are stored in your fat cells. Toxins are fat-soluble. This is what we talked about with dairy, as well. That's why you don't want to drink dairy from feedlot cattle because you're getting hormones, antibiotics, whatever pesticides they ate. All this sh** is trapped in those fat cells, right? When you're drinking the fat, you're getting what you eat. You are what you eat. What the cows eat is going in your system, right? 


The same thing works with humans. If you have a 20-year history of drinking every night and eating fast food and eating fried foods, and you have all these toxins stored in your system, here's what your body does. The fat works as a safety mechanism. As long as the fat grabs these toxins and holds them. They're not in your bloodstream. Think about that. They're inside the fat cell. They're not inside your bloodstream because your fat cell draws things in from the bloodstream, right? Now you have these toxins stored in your fat. If you're an obese person and you were ill, you really had poor habits. Then you have a lot of toxins stored in your fat and get this. When I switch you to a low carb diet, and your body wants to start burning fat for fuel, your body knows. Your body is so intelligent that it knows there are toxins stored in the fat. It tries desperately to hold onto the fat. Why? Because when it burns the fat, those toxins now get released into your bloodstream. How crazy is that? 


And your body is going, "Well, we're sick. We're not that good at detoxing." If I burn this fat and get hit in the face with many toxins, I'm not really good at getting those out of my system. This is another part of the keto flu. When people go really low carb, and they feel like a complete dog sh**. Some people feel like dog sh** for three days or seven days; they had more toxins in their system. They were literally flushing their body with toxins. As they burst, these little fat cells start burning these fat cells. They're releasing toxins in their systems that have been stored there because toxins are fat-soluble. This trigger point comes at a different time for everyone. If you're two weeks in or something and you're having trouble, you're like, "I lost three pounds. I lost five pounds." There's a reason your body is storing fat, and we just need to stick with the program because you get to a point where it has to burn fat when it runs out of glucose. 


The only option is to die or burn fat. I promise the body will go, "Screw it. Let's release some toxins as we burn this fat. So we don't die." It's going to do that, but you have to just be patient. Another reason why I say people don't try keto, low carb. They don't stick with it for long enough because the trigger point is different for everybody. You might get lucky. You might drop 20 pounds in two weeks. Now, if you're 400 pounds, you're probably gonna lose 20 pounds in two weeks. If you're 155 pounds and you're trying to lose your last five pounds of fat just so your app show or something might not happen in two weeks, man. We have to stick with this thing. You have to stick it up, you know? 


Here's what we'll do. We'll go into that. I wanted to talk about all these things we touched on a lot today, and let's do a quick Q and A. I've got a few minutes left. Ben, no, I don't mind Stevia. I've researched this pretty extensively. Stevia can get a little bit wonky if you talk about it in really, really high doses. I mean really high doses. Like if you have a Stevia dropper and you're just doing three, four droppers full of Stevia and everything you drink, you might have a problem. It slightly mimics estrogen. It actually looks a lot like estrogen molecularly, so you can run into some hormonal issues. It can be a hormone disruptor. 


First things first, if you enjoyed this so far, everything we talked about. 

Click the like button and click the happy face; click the love button, share it with your page. Please shower me with all the love I needed for my ego. If you have any questions, there's a few of you in here right now. If you have any questions, just start posting them. I'm going to start saying bye here in a couple minutes. 


Let's see if we have any questions. I'll give you guys a minute to think about questions. We'll go over stuff that we hit today. We hit on lectins. We hit on dairy. We hit on pre-workouts. We hit on alcohol. We hit on meal prep. We hit on Tupperware. We hit on microwaves. That's a lot of stuff. Well, we'll probably call it for this session. Again, I'm going to make blog posts of all these. It's going to embed the video. It'd be on the Clovis culture website. I will share it in the comment sections of this video. 


Let's say you commented as Ben did. You'll probably get a notification that I've commented on the video. When that webpage is ready, we'll embed the Facebook post, so you can watch it even without a Facebook account. If you share that link, you can share it with your friends. Even if they don't have Facebook, they can watch it. Weekly cast, it's every Wednesday, 6:00 PM central. Now, this is only episode number two; it's been great. I'm going to keep doing this as long as you guys keep giving me questions all throughout the week. Just pepper me with questions. If I don't respond to you, please don't feel bad. That's the whole reason I did this. I was just getting bombarded with too many questions. 

This is a way for me to manage that. I can take the most popular questions from the week, and I can do this kind of format of two to three topics. Then I can do a live Q and A. As of right now, it's going to be every Wednesday, 6:00 PM central. Depending on how crazy the questions get, maybe we'll add one and do two a week or something like that. As of right now, we're gonna do the one a week, Wednesday, 6:00 PM. 


Let's go like another minute here and see if you guys have any other questions. Thank you. I really appreciate that. Thank you is really. I love doing this. It makes me very, very happy, and I appreciate you guys allowing me to do it. I hope we can continue to do it. Keep the questions coming all throughout the week, and I'll continue to give info. 

I'm also going to drink this dry farm wines, which you guys should totally do too. Find some. Thank you so much. This is a weekly "Ask me anything" Facebook lab number two with the Clovis culture. This is Justine Nault, excess protein. All right. Let's hit this real quick. 

No, not for you. Well, Ben, I know you, you work out a lot, right? So excess protein is only an issue if you're really sedentary and like literally you have a day job where you sit around all day. Then you come home and sit on the couch and watch Netflix; excess protein can be a problem, but it's very, very, very difficult to overdo protein. Unless if you're really trying to make a rapid fat loss, you can run into it if you're sedentary, but I mean, you'd have to be eating a lot of protein. 


All right. So thank you guys very much. Again, my name is Justin Nault. I own the Clovis culture, and I created the perfect paleo powder line of nutritional supplements. Check it out We have t-shirts for sale Clovis culture. We have sample packs for sale. If you have any questions about products or anything, hit me up. ,

Let me know what you like about the format. If you think I'm doing an excellent job of this or not. Let me know what I can change. I want to get better. I want to give you guys the most information I can in the most easily digestible way so that you really enjoy it. That you really walk away feeling like you've learned something. This is all about you guys. That is my core value with Clovis impact the lives of as many human beings as possible, literally. Impact lives of human beings for the better; that's all I care about. You guys are letting me do that. And for that, I thank you very, very much. Until next week, Wednesday 6:00 PM. Thank you guys so much for being here. Appreciate it.
