Nutrition Podcast


Healing your gut is no small task…

It involves re-engineering your entire life, everything from the food you eat, to the supplements you take, all the way to how much sleep you get.

But no matter what gut-healing “diet” you’re on, or whatever gut-repair supplements you’re taking, there’s one more critical piece of the puzzle.

And if you don’t incorporate this into your healing journey, you’ll never fully recover.

That tool?

The powerful connection between your gut and your mind.

This is why I’m so excited I got to sit down with my friend, Robyn Youkilis, and chat about this with her.

I love Robyn for her slightly-sassy, no-nonsense tips and her amazing recipes. Plus, she makes this whole healthy living thing look like a total party. (Don’t believe me? Go check out her Instagram – this girl bounces from workouts to TV appearances to Coachella to Turkey, all while having FUN.)

We talked about this ‘missing gut-health tool’ in-depth, including the what, why, and (the seemingly-elusive) how of creating a truly healthy connection with your gut.

Robyn shared the simple, yet effective, lessons that are the core of this missing tool, such as “Breathe,” “Chew,” “Eat,” “Drink,” “Shop,” and “Shed.”

By the end of this podcast, you’ll have specific tips to improve your mind-body connection and change the relationship you have with your gut…

And hopefully incorporate this missing tool along with everything else you’re already doing to heal your gut. [click to continue…]

One time, for 28 days, I drank nothing but protein shakes.

I was following a supposedly AMAZING fitness diet to lose weight. While I did lose some, I gained most of it back within a few months.

I’ve tried almost every “diet” in the world, whether it was back when I was trying to add muscle to play college sports, lose weight when I was 60lbs heavier or fix my health after that.

And I can tell you that after publicly talking about my story and working with people for the last 6 years there’s NO DOUBT in my mind… that our relationship to food must be explored.

Whether you sometimes cheat, fall off the wagon, binge, overeat like I used to do…  or whether you get “stuck” and militant about foods or stress eat like Jordan has in the past… or whether you’re like good friends of mine who’ve starved themselves or purged at times…

I want you to know you’re not crazy nor should you be ashamed.

I do want to encourage you to explore your pattern with food, though – to get curious, fascinated and excited to discover your patterns. Because guess what, everyone has them.

One of the best ways to start is by listening to this very raw podcast where I talk about my patterns with food, where Emily shares her very vulnerable story and Marc helps us all relax into a more solid relationship with it. [click to continue…]

In case you missed it, earlier this week I had my friends from The Sitting Solution, Chad and Brenda Walding, as guest writers on the blog. Actually, you might even already be familiar with them, especially if you read my post from last fall on my struggles with neck and upper back pain.

The truth is, I’ve got 18 years of bad posture and movement that I’m trying to correct. And just like lowering stress, I think getting rid of neck, shoulder and upper back pain is something that needs constant attention. The reality is our western world is currently created to induce stress and to put us humans in unnatural positions.

What I really admire about these two is that they understand that the world isn’t changing anytime soon. And that means we need to shift the conversation to not making it wrong, but what can we do to offset the damage it does to us. I really love how they’re able to break down complex movement patterns  and give everyone some easy to follow, straightforward tips to implement right away – even in your cubicle at the office.

I was blown away by the results I’ve been personally seeing from their work, so I wanted to interview them and get more details.  Whether you’re struggling with chronic pains from sitting in the wrong position all day, or just want to maximize your health and longevity, this podcast is a must listen… [click to continue…]




As I laid out in the first video of the new year, we want to support you in taking action this year. But, there are seeds that must first be planted when starting out on any health journey.

See, we’re making it our mission, more than ever, to produce content that gets your engines firing. And we’re providing you with premium octane fuel to do so…

Because millions of people are just barely running on fumes, for a variety of reasons… a big one being Autoimmune Diseases. And I want you to know that, contrary to popular belief, these diseases are not normal…

Autoimmune Disease is on the rise and affecting millions more each year.

That’s why we’re running this online presentation to raise awareness.

But as Dr. Amy Myers explains in our podcast today, a combination of factors have led most people to believe Autoimmunity is just part of aging and there’s nothing we can do to stop it once it starts…

Well, if you missed this post, I’ve got news for you. Experts are shouting louder and LOUDER from the rooftops: YOU CAN REVERSE AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE!!!

I can’t wait for you to LISTEN to this podcast with Dr. Amy Myers.

The last time we had her on, she blew our minds with her talk on detoxification, toxins and mold

This podcast on Autoimmune Disease is just as powerful. [click to continue…]




You may have heard of Maca before. Many people are supplementing with it to help with infertility and hormone imbalance…

But can it help with gut health?

What if I said the root causes associated with many cases of infertility were inflammation, hormone imbalance, and/or adrenal fatigue?

Sound familiar?

Well, if you’ve followed us for any length of time you already know this, but Steve and I are very particular about the supplements we share with our community. While creating a custom version of a real food diet is definitely at the base of any effective healing plan, many times supplements, proper testing, and working with a skilled practitioner are necessary to take your health to the next level.

When it comes to supplements, we know just how confusing and frustrating it can be to find quality that’s affordable, especially with all of the blanket statements and “magic pill” claims attached to thousands of products.

While we realize that, in most cases, no one supplement is going to be the answer for you, when we come across a game changer we’re inclined to share it with you. After all, one of our core missions is to follow our “time machine rule”, sharing things we wish we could get in a time machine and go back and give ourselves when we were sick.
