    My daughter recently told me about the Breaking Bad TV Series and I am slowly working my way through the past 4 seasons on Netflix.  I'll have to admit I enjoy the series but can't help but think about one of my slides in one of my PowerPoint Presentations where I try to make the point that a early death is usually due to us living "Dangerous Lifestyles".  We live Dangerous Physical Lifestyles where we risk violence or accidents and we wreck our bodies and we live Dangerous Metabolic Lifestyles where we wreck our metabolism.  This series is full of examples of both of these kinds of Lifestyles and it's sad to see the characters going through all the misery they bring on themselves. Granted, the main character's lung cancer problem may just be bad luck, but I'm amazed how much trouble he and the others can get in and out of!  There are a lot of lessons here but one to take away is to remember that "In life's great experiment, you are your own Guinea Pig, so take care of the Pig!"  At Inside Outside we've got some good Cooks and Recipes to show you the way!  Make Inside Outside your Drug of Choice!  And, please, don't anyone tell me what is going to happen this 5th and final season.

    Break GOod at Inside Outside!

    Start Here with "The Whole New You Program!"

    Dr. William C. Dement on "Sleep and Optimal Performace"  Google Personal Growth Series


    My Zeo ZQ Score, 120, after 38hrs Sleep Deprivation. 11:13 hrs total sleep, 5:29 REM Sleep (Amazing amount of REM Sleep), woke up once, cat wanted out

    "Sleep, that knits up the ravell'd sleave of care.

    The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,

    balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,

    chief nourisher in life's feast." 

    Shakespeare, MacBeth, Act II.


    Everyone at Inside Outside knows that we emphasize the need for adequate quality sleep for optimal health and performance.  When people ask Dr. Christian what he does for fun his usual reply is "I like to Sleep"!  One of the first books I read about 15 years ago when I was beginning to learn about sleep was written by Dr. William Dement, Founder and Division Chair of the Stanford Sleep Research Center, "The Promise of Sleep".  Dr. Dement has been researching sleep for over 50 years and was the first to describe REM or Rapid EyeI am a Self Quantifier, there, I said it! Movement Sleep and is thought of as the Father of Sleep Medicine.  REM sleep is the type of sleep which occurs when we Dream and Dr. Christian knows he gets a lot of REM sleep from wearing his ZEO Headband each night which transmits wirelessly his sleep architecture to a beside console and then creates a graph which shows details about a nights sleep in the form of a graph called a Hypnogram (see above right).  I regularly review sites related to self monitoring and a favorite site is Quantified Self.  Yes, I'm a Quantified Selfer, there, I said it.  Recently, someone posted a link to a lecture given by Dr. Dement to employees of Google as part of their Google Personal Growth Series. To put it simply "healthy sleep is by far the most important determinant of high level performance and productivity"  Learn More, Check out the YouTube Video of the Month, "Sleep and Optimal Performance", Dr. William Dement.

    Laurie Garrett and "The Survival of Global Health"   Sounds Pretty Important to me!!


    The USA has made lots of promises it can't keep!!Last year Dr. Christian and staff attended a seminar at the UTHSC sponsored by their CenterFunding for Global Health depends on the USA! Everybody else has quit! for Humanities and Ethics.  The speaker was Laurie Garrett,  a journalist and global health expert at the Council on Foreign Relations.  Even for someone like me who has been exposed to medical issues all my adult life, it was a real eye opener.  Laurie has written and spoken extensively about our growing Global Public Health Concerns and the prospects for any meaningful improvement based on the recent downturn in economies worldwide and the recent effect of sequestration on funds needed to continue Global Health Efforts which to a large extent are now dependent on US Funding.   She has completed a 6 Part Series this year updating some of her concerns she wrote about in her 2000 bestseller "Betrayal of Trust, the Collapse of Global Public Health.  See the Graph from Part 2 "The Future of Global Health Funding".   Here are the links to the reports, full of great graphs and information. To use a phrase from NASA "Houston, we have problem".........

    Say it isn't so!  Inside Outside says "Farewell" to Jessica McGhee, Personal Trainer..

    Dr. Christian and Jessica, couldn't be prouder of this young lady!!


    Dr. Christian and Inside Outside wish Personal Trainer Jessica McGhee, our newest Inside Outside Star, best wishes as she  leaves Inside Outside to assume a full time Personal Trainer Position at Gold's Gym in Austin, Texas.  Jessica came to Inside Outside as a Kinesiology Intern in the Fall of 2011.  At the end of her Internship she became a member of the Inside Outside Staff and received training as a Hologic DXA Operator.  While at Inside Outside she was the driving force behind production of our two YouTube Videos and became a member of the 500 Club and the Row Your Own Weight Club. In addition to her strength gains, she had great personal results with her own body composition which her earned the Inside Outside Star for this Newsletter. Ask to see her Six Pack!  Jessica plans to continue to pursue her goal of becoming a Physician Assistant.   She will be missed by me and her many friends at Inside Outside!!

    Since it's inception, an important mission at Inside Outside has been to makeAsk Us!  Inside Outside has helped many San Antonio non-profit organizations!

    a difference in our community.  The best way we have found to do this is to

    make contributions to Non-Profit organizations through silent auctions at their

    annual fund raising events, seminars, health fairs or direct donations.  We would

    consider it an honor for any request for items to be donated or for Dr. Christian to speak to Non-Profit and other organizations/businesses in San Antonio and surrounding cities. Check out our New Community Service Page chronicling Inside Outside's Community Service efforts since 2004!
