444: Overcoming Excuses For Good

The most dangerous excuses are true. The reason they keep winning out over your goals & intentions might be because you realize they are true so you don’t fight against them. You equate “true” and “right”. Just because something is true doesn’t mean it’s the most true thing or the only true thing. We’ve got to stop making assumptions & choosing the most convenient truth. When it comes to making choices & pursuing our goals, we often don’t tell ourselves the whole truth. We don’t even...


443: What You Need To Know About Beans

Earlier in the week I got an email asking, "Why aren't beans paleo?" It's a great question & one we're diving into in today's episode. We'll talk about macronutrients - are beans really a good source of protein? Do they have a lot of carbs? We'll talk about micronutrients - can your body actually absorb & utilize the iron & zinc you see listed on the nutrition label? We'll also talk about other components in beans and how they interact with our bodies at the cellular level. If you're...


442: Think Big, Go Small

Our lives are busy. We all have a lot going on. And, unfortunately, that often means we aren't achieving our most important goals. When we aren't intentional about the highest priorities in our lives, we can easily become victims of our circumstances, feeling that there isn't enough time or energy to do what we should be doing. That needs to change. That can change. Creating change doesn't require that your life be stress free and your days be wide open. It just requires that we not...


441: Why You Are Stuck

At times, we all feel stuck. Or unhappy. Or both. In today's episode I'm talking about the danger of participating in our own problems instead of participating in the solutions. When we complain, blame, rehash the past, gossip, explain & justify, we are participating in the problem, not the solution. When we participate in the problem, our energy, attention, time & effort are going to proving that we are right and that our struggle is real instead of going towards getting it right,...


440: Clearing Up Conflicting Nutrition Advice

I know how frustrating & confusing it can be to hear conflicting information about what you should eat and why.

In today's episode I want to help you clear through the confusion and find your best approach to health, fat loss, energy, longevity and your best, healthiest life. I've tackled this topic on a few other podcasts which are linked below under "Resources". I hope you enjoy the...


439: 4 New Ways To Win When Eating Out

For most people, eating out is a struggle when they're trying to lose weight. Maybe you feel like your options are limited or if you make a "healthy" choice, you're making a sacrifice and won't enjoy it. Sure, we all know that we could get a salad or a burger without the bun and if that's the extent of the options we think we have, of course we feel limited! There are so many other creative ways to enjoy eating out, love your food and feel great after you eat it! Today's episode is a...


438: Simplify

We are so used to overthinking, overconsuming, overanalyzing and coming up with long term strategic plans that we've forgotten how to simplify. I had a listener email me recently saying that she wants to stop dieting. She wants to get healthy. She doesn't want to over-restrict or count anything, she just wants to eat more real food and less processed foods. Then she said, "I have no idea where to start". That is evidence of how far we've strayed from simplicity. Where she starts is,...


437: Needs Of The Body Or Needs Of The Mind?

So much good stuff in today's episode! Resources Breakfast...


436: Transforming Your Mental Operating System

Let's stop fighting against ourselves & relying on discipline and willpower to create change. I believe that one of the most simple things we can do to make change easier and dramatically accelerate our rate of progress is: ask better questions. Tim Ferriss says that if you want uncommon results, ask uncommonly clear questions. Tony Robbins says that the quality of your life depends on the quality of the questions you ask yourself. I'll add to that "and the honesty with which you answer...


435: EB Answers 'Tribe of Mentors' Questions

In his new book, Tribe of Mentors, Tim Ferriss asks 11 questions of some of the brightest minds & top performers in the world. The book is a collection of their answers.

433: When To Choose "Better"

Have you ever fallen into the trap of "better"? You know, when your choices aren't your best but you keep justifying them because they are better than what you used to choose? You're still eating ice cream every night, you aren't making progress, but you feel justified because it's better than your past binges? I am all for the pursuit of better...until it becomes the trap of better. I'm all for the pursuit of "better" until it keeps you from identifying and acting upon your best. The...


432: How Your Microbiome Can Help You Burn More Fat

We have more bacterial cells and bacterial genes in our bodies than we do human cells and human genes. Our microbiome influences every single aspect of our health. It has a tremendous influence over our metabolisms, hunger, appetite, fat storage and fat burning. If we aren't being intentional about optimizing our microbiome, chances are that it's not working in our favor, or, a best, not working for us as well as it could. In today's episode we're talking about tactics and strategies to...


431: Motivational Minisode

The first rule of holes is: stop digging. Today's episode is a motivational minisode to help you in those moments when you feel stuck or you find yourself making a series of choices you don't feel good about it. It could be a small moment, like mindlessly grabbing handfuls of Goldfish, or a chain of moments over a day, weekend or week. This episode will be a great tool to help you implement a simple re-direct and stop digging deeper into a hole you don't want to...


430: Slowing Down To Speed Up

I caught myself making a big mistake in my approach to creating an improvement in my life. While my mistake was in the gym, it's a mistake I see most people making in the way they approach losing weight or improving their food choices. This mistake, which I describe in detail in today's show, is choosing intensity before establishing stamina. While this can absolutely happen in the gym, it's just as common in our food choices. Choosing intensity over stamina means choosing the intense...

426: Discipline Equals Freedom

I read a lot. Multiple books each week. Within the Primal Potential Masters Club we have a monthly book club where we read, discuss and implement the strategies within many of my all time favorite books. Every once in a while I do a book club episode on the podcast and share ideas from a book I've recently enjoyed. Today we're talking about Discipline Equals Freedom Field Manual by Jocko Willink. Though I don't know him, I have an immeasurable amount of respect & admiration for him & his...


425: Creating Balance With Food & Life
