TMHS 242: 6 Crucial Keys To Long-Term Fitness & The Science Of Motivation

When you understand motivation, you finally take the training wheels off on your ride to success. If you can actually hone in on why we do the things that we do, there’s no limit to what you can achieve. Without motivation, even the smallest tasks feel gargantuan. But, with motivation, there comes an overflow of focus and energy that puts conquering great feats on automatic. We’ve all done it. There’s something we say we want to accomplish… something with our fitness, our career, our...

TMHS 241: Eliminating Your Body's Unwanted Waste & Taking The Taboo Out Of Poo - With Bobby Edwards

The well known phrase “you are what you eat” isn’t entirely accurate. This is because everything you eat doesn’t become “you”. And thank goodness for that! A lot of what you eat doesn’t make the cut as far as building materials, and it has to be eliminated. If that eliminatory process is hindered in any way, trouble starts brewing fast. Your digestion, assimilation, and elimination is the very foundation of your health. Yet, the elimination factor isn’t talked about nearly enough today. Poo...

TMHS 240: Happiness Vs. Pleasure And The Hacking Of The American Mind - With Dr. Robert Lustig

Do you remember the scene in the movie The Matrix where the main character Neo wakes up from his incubated sleep covered in pink goo? It wasn’t the goo that was alarming (strangely enough) it was the fact that he woke up to a very different reality than the one he believed in. He thought that his decisions were his own, he thought that he was free to choose his beliefs and path in life, and he thought that he was free. The truth was that it was all an illusion, and his mind had been hacked...

TMHS 239: Everyday Enlightenment And Getting Stronger Through Change - With Dan Millman

How often do you read good fiction books? There was a stretch of maybe half a decade where I, although an avid reader, avoided reading any fiction because I believed that it was not productive. I read countless nutrition books, books on fitness, books on personal development, and more. They all contained a lot of facts and theories (which were great) but I was missing on something really special for my life. Luckily, a few years back after the poking and prodding or several people, I...

TMHS 238: The Science Of Cravings: Serotonin, Dopamine, And Cheetos

The word “craving” has a lot of meanings in our language. To sum it all up, it can range from a small internal whisper, to a deep, burning desire for something. We can crave achievement, love, drugs, food, and so much more. In fact, cravings are at an all-time high today. There are more things than ever to crave, more access to them, and more things designed to keep you coming back. Today we’re going to dissect what cravings actually are. You’re going to understand the science of cravings...

TMHS 237: Emotional Intelligence And Developing Altered Traits - With Dr. Daniel Goleman

For many of us, we believe that our past = our future. We often carry a subconscious belief that no matter what we do, things will always be just more of the same. Even as we grow older, there’s a tendency to replay just slightly different versions of the same year over and over again. But, as Robin Sharma said, we want to catch ourselves in the act of this craziness and, “don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.” So, how do we actually break the mold and change the course...

TMHS 236: UNDEFEATED: Strengthen Your Body, Mind, And Confidence - With Laila Ali

I love the quote from Marianne Williamson that says, “With confidence, you can reach truly amazing heights; without confidence, even the simplest accomplishments are beyond your grasp.” How much does confidence really play into our lives? Well, if we take a step back we can see that confidence plays a major role in ALL of the decisions we make. Humans don’t act without an underlying sense of confidence. We have confidence in simple things like our ability to walk out our front door and...

TMHS 235: Epigenetics And The Biology Of Belief - With Dr. Bruce Lipton

I remember watching a lecture from Dr. Bruce Lipton along with my wife and mother-in-law many years ago. After it was over, I saw the tears rolling down my mother-in-laws face as she was overwhelmed with emotion. You see, she had been helping people from all walks of life to better themselves mind, body, and spirit for decades. I’d never meet anyone who was as loved and admired as her before, and I was always intrigued by the love that came from everyone’s mouth when they spoke of...

TMHS 234: Increase Your Sense Of Value And Stop Postponing Happiness - With Guest Lisa Nichols

Scientist believe that approximately 50 percent of our happiness is genetically predetermined, while 10 percent is due to life circumstances, and 40 percent is the result of our own personal outlook. Whether or not you believe in genetic determinism, none of us can argue that our personal outlook (and in many ways our life circumstances) are within the power of our own hands to change. Why, then, is happiness at a deficit today? With so much connection and so much opportunity, why has...

TMHS 233: If It Fits Your Macros & The Dangers Of Gluten-Free RELOADED

You can gain just as much weight eating gluten-free cupcakes as you do eating gluten-filled cupcakes. We don’t want the latest marketing trend to be the demise of your health and fitness goals. Though many gluten-free efforts mean well, as with anything, marketers can really mess things up. They’ll take a good wholesome idea and you turn it into a tactic. Gluten-free options came into play to enable folks with gluten sensitivities to still enjoy some of their favorite comfort foods. Then...

TMHS 232: Brain Hacks For Faster Learning, Boosting Your Retention, And Eliminating Mental Fatigue - With Jim Kwik

You’ve probably been hearing the news about WMDs from the media for many years. In fact, the media itself is often a WMD (Weapon of Mass Distraction). Today we are living in the time of the greatest distraction known to man. We’ve gained some prominence over acquiring food and water, most folks have a roof over their head, and meeting potential mates can be as easy as swiping right on your phone. But all of this newfound free time has opened up blackhole of time to kill, and now we have an...

TMHS 231: Morning Routines That Supercharge Your Fat Loss, Health, And Productivity

Why not start your body off each day in a fat-burning state? It’s as easy as drinking a glass of water… and here’s why. A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that drinking just 17 ounces of water can increase your metabolic rate by up to 30%. Wait, what?! So, this whole drinking water to lose fat thing actually works? In short, yes. But the real gold is in the details. The researchers in the study found that the total thermogenic response...

TMHS 230: Body Checks, Financial Fitness, And How To Be Age-Proof - With Dr. Michael Roizen

You’ve probably heard the statement before that “health is wealth”. But what does that mean exactly? I believe that it’s a statement summarizing the fact that when you have your health, you have possibility. With good health you have the clarity, the vitality, and the energy to submit your will in life, and do the things that make your life worth living. Without good health, everything in life can seem exponentially harder. And I know this from firsthand experience. It’s so much harder...

TMHS 229: The Myth Of Fat-Burning Foods & Why Stress Makes Us Fat - With Dr. Jade Teta

You’ve seen the headlines… Ads telling you to just “Eat these 5 fat burning foods” and you’ll be able to achieve miraculous things. You’ll drop 10 pounds in two weeks, lose several inches off your waist, and even get your own reality show on VH1. Ok, I added the last one in, but you get the picture. If eating certain fat-burning foods could cure our body fat problems, then why are we not seeing an epidemic of fit people flooding the streets? If there were fat-burning foods that really did...

TMHS 228: How To Create An Environment That Supports Your Greatness

People, places, things, and ideas… This doesn’t just describe what a noun is… this also describes what your destiny will be. These are the things that make up your environment at any given time. And these are the things that inherently influence your thoughts, feelings, and actions. If you want to adjust the thoughts you carry, the feelings you experience, or the actions you take, you must meticulously look to your environment. I love the quote that says, “You are a product of your...

TMHS 227: The Pros And Cons Of Coconut Oil + 20 Ways To Use Coconut Oil For Wellness

The next Watergate… the next Covfefe… the next New World Order is… coconut oil? It’s remarkable how foods go in and out of fashion. A similar thing has happened with eggs. For centuries folks were eating whole eggs because, well, that’s how they come. Then saturated fat and cholesterol were villainized, and the egg yolks got the boot. Suddenly we were forced to endure the not-quite-right taste of egg white omelets. Then, years later, whole eggs are vindicated, and they are back on the...

TMHS 225: Paying Off Sleep-Debt, The Truth About Naps, And Sleep Tips For Parents

When the going gets tough, the tough take a nap. That’s how it goes, right? More and more today, napping is being considered acceptable by societal standards. There was a time when being caught “sleeping on the job” was frowned upon. Now, today, innovative companies like Google actually encourage their employees to nap if they feel the desire to. The results?... Higher employee work output, higher levels of job satisfaction, and lower levels of stress. Can a good nap do all of that?...

TMHS 224: Unconventional Exercise And Creating An Alpha Brain - With Aubrey Marcus

There are many paths to our fitness goals. Some will get you there faster than others. And some will get you there so overly yolked that you look like crossfitting, keto eating Hulk Hogan. Having 24 inch pythons like Hulk Hogan probably isn’t the goal for everyone. But getting to our body composition and fitness goals injury-free is. We’ve become strangely trapped in our linear movements in exercise today. Press with both arms in one direction with equal weight (i.e. bench press), squat...

Right now we have instant information at our fingertips. The answers to almost any question you can ask (including important questions like “Why do they keep remaking Spider-man?”) are just seconds away. We have an abundance of food for billions of people (I have some issues with this, but let me not digress)....
