Know When to Break the Rules—Part II
Ladies and gentlemen, you may now sleep peacefully at night. The much-anticipated sequel to my previous post, “Know When to Break the Rules—Part I,” has arrived! Last time we focused on the rules of fashion—what to wear (or not) to an audition. But now I would like to move on to the audition itself. From monologue selection to its execution, creating the perfect audition package can be a source of endless agonizing. As I’m sure anyone with the barest amount of training can attest, there are endless rules that dictate the choosing, pairing and performing of audition pieces. This is perfectly understandable. When you have two minutes or less to leave the impression on which your future job depends, you want to proceed with care. And then there are times when you want to carefully flout procedure.
Sometimes it’s hard to even get past this stage. While sorting through plays and anthologies, the voices chatter away: “too overdone, too narrative, too recent, too old, doesn’t show my type, not enough range,” and on, and on, and on. The danger is that if you only listen to the voices telling you what not to do, you won’t end up doing anything of note. The thing to remember is that most of these “rules” are general guidelines translated for the purpose of education, designed to apply to diverse groups of actors in any situation. But once you are working professionally, you have to start making decisions that apply specifically to the kind of actor you are, and the kind of career you want to have. For example, I am currently working in Atlanta, which does a lot of family-friendly theatre. A lot of my training cautioned to shy away from narrative monologues (typified by a character relating an experience or telling a personal story). But observation taught me that certain narrative pieces play into the kind of tone that has been popular in new works frequently featured in the Atlanta theatre scene over the past couple years. So while auditioning here, I will sometimes break the rules and choose narrative pieces, even pieces that include direct address, because my location is a factor I need to take into account when moving forward professionally.

Today: Audition Techniques
Will’s 2nd half guest is:
Wendy McPhail, CNC, FDN, NBCCT
CNC – Certified Nutritional Consultant. I provide education in nutrition for the individual seeking to regain their health as well as group seminars for parents and their children on health issues. Proper nutrition in the school age years can reinforce lifelong eating habits that contribute to a student’s overall well being. This will help them to grow and learn to their fullest potential, and then go on to lead a long, healthy life. I provide an introduction to the human body and to factors that prevent illness and promote or damage health.
Did you know that this generation of young people is the first that is forecast to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents? 1 in 3 or 4 children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes at some point in their lifetime. The prevalence of overweight children among 6-11 year olds has doubled in the past 20 years and tripled for teens.
Adopting healthy behavior can have lifelong consequences. The goal of this education is not only to increase the parent’s health knowledge, but to create healthy behavior in the children of those parents. Health Education is most effective if parents are involved.
FDN – Functional Diagnostic Nutrition. Certification to utilize lab testing through Biohealth Diagnostics. FDN does not diagnose or treat specific diseases. Instead it explores the underlying causes of health challenges. Because symptoms are the last thing to be revealed in a disease process, usually function has been lost for some time. Symptoms are physical manifestations of a problem far deeper than most doctors are willing to look for. Like the tip of an iceberg, symptoms are a signal that there is dysfunction lying beneath the surface. When treatment is pills or surgeries to eradicate symptoms, the root cause is never discovered and dealt with. Health concerns can be managed and resolved with functional lab testing and integrative approaches to treatment.
NBCCT – Nationally Board Certified Colon Therapist through I-ACT (International Association for Colon Therapy). Colon Therapy is a wonderful adjunct to any health improvement plan, and is an excellent therapy for those in chronic states of ill health.

HIDDEN EVERYDAY SUGARS IN OUR DIETS AND WEIGHT GAIN
Conventional advice has focused on low-fat diets for weight loss and heart disease prevention, but again and again, researchers are now confirming that refined carbohydrates from sugars and grains is the primary culprit behind skyrocketing obesity rates, along with related diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Historical data also clearly shows that when indigenous cultures abandon their traditional diets for a Western style diet high in sugar and flour, they inevitably begin to suffer these health problems, even though they have been virtually nonexistent in their culture before.
The emphasis on low-fat diets has likely contributed to the obesity epidemic in the US by promoting overconsumption of sugars and grains. Most people don’t realize that they are getting a lot of sugar daily from refined grains in their diet, such as breakfast cereals, breads, bagels, waffles and so-forth. These quickly break down to sugar, which raises your insulin levels and causes insulin resistance. Its important to remember that insulin resistance is the number one underlying factor of nearly every chronic disease known to man, including heart disease.
Your body produces insulin to keep your blood sugar at the appropriate level. Any meal or snack high in grain and sugar carbohydrates typically generates a rapid rise in blood glucose. To compensate for this your pancreas secretes insulin into your bloodstream, which lowers your blood sugar to keep you from dying. Consuming a diet consistently high in sugar and grains will cause your body over time to be “sensitized” to insulin and requires more and more of it to get the job done. Eventually, you become insulin resistant, and then diabetic.
If you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or are overweight, it is highly likely that you are eating too many grains – yes, even unrefined whole grains – as this is the most common culprit causing your insulin level to become abnormal. When your insulin levels rise due to an excess of carbohydrates, they send your body a hormonal message telling it to store fat while holding on to the fat that is already there. So not only will excess carbohydrates (which quickly convert to sugar) make you overweight, they will effectively hamper your weight loss efforts too.
If you want to shed excess pounds or maintain an ideal weight, you must severely restrict carbohydrates (sugars, fructose and grains) and increase healthy fat consumption. Sugars and refined carbohydrates do not create a feeling of fullness –also called satiety. High quality fats do this. It seems counter-intuitive to eat more healthy fat to lose weight, but this is how the body works. Sugars and grains create a chronic feeling of hunger, and desire to eat more. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to shift your diet away from processed foods toward a diet of whole (preferably organic) foods. Avoid boxed (even “organic” boxed) products, and instead choose the base ingredients for your meal.
Eat whole, unprocessed, nutrient-dense, nourishing foods. Prioritize grass fed and pastured meats and eggs, wild-caught seafood, and vegetables. Enjoy fruit and fermented/sprouted nuts and seeds in moderation.
Avoid foods that harm which cause body-wide systemic inflammation, destroying our guts, or derailing our natural metabolic processes. Abstain from toxic, pro-inflammatory foods like gluten-containing grains, legumes, sugar, and the laboratory-concocted GMO Frankenfoods found in the middle aisles of your neighborhood supermarket.
