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 trap of better is what we are talking about today! Don't miss it!

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 minimize damage and maximize benefits.

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 create.

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 approach without first building consistent basics. That might be a Whole 30 right from your standard American diet, or going from indulging too frequently to strict keto - but we jump to the intense approach hoping for faster results without realizing that we haven't laid a solid foundation for change. Then, we bail. We get frustrated or can't sustain the extent of the change and we give up.

Our ambition exceeded our preparation. Our motivation is greater than our stamina. We might have the desire to create big changes but we need to slow down, establish a solid foundation and making gradual changes that last instead of massive changes that don't.

In today's episode I'm talking about how and where we most often make this mistake and sharing some ideas of how you can establish that stamina for change before dipping your toes in the waters of intensity.

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 philosophies.

Jocko was a Navy Seal & commander of the most decorated special operations unit of the war in Iraq.

Since retiring from military service, he has become a successful business man & coach who lives to practice what he preaches.

From my perspective, Jocko Willink embodies mental toughness, achievement, bravery & self-discipline. I'm excited to share some of his ideas with you.

If you are looking for a swift kick in the pants, buy the book and more importantly, live the ideas within it.

Enjoy today's book club episode!

The other day in my Daily Stoic Journal I answered the following question:

If I lived today as if it were my last, what would I do?

At first, I copped out. I wrote out all the things I'd do & then all the reasons why I couldn't do them. I mean, I have to work! I have responsibilities.

Then, I caught myself and said: within the framework of my current reality, what can I do?

Instead of focusing on what I would do but can't, what are the things I should do & can?

One of those things I said I'd do if it was my last day on earth is record a final message for my Primal Potential family. 

So, though this is not the last Primal Potential podcast, I wanted to record it as though it was. These are all the things I'd want you to know if it was my last day on earth.

  • How to handle "backsliding" after seeing some progress
  • How to stop a downward spiral
  • What benefits you can expect from adding more fat to your diet
  • Unseen ways you're holding yourself back
