Today I'm answering YOUR questions! I really see this as OUR show and one of my primary objectives is to give you want you need. I want to help you overcome your challenges and excuses. I want to help you make progress towards your goals. One of the ways I can do that is by addressing what's on your mind and what's going on in your life.

In today's episode, I'm answering questions you've sent in, including:

  • How do you stay motivated after you've made considerable progess?
  • What are your fears?
  • Do you need to eat every 2-3 hours to maintain blood sugar?
  • I really struggle with moderation. Is it possible to change that mindset or is that just the way I am?
  • Do you ever have a bad day? What does that look like?
  • What are your personal tools for persevering in a negative environment?

Don't miss this episode! Make sure to let me know if you have questions!

"Let food be thy medicine & medicine be thy food"

~ Hippocrates

Today we're taking a look at another food that can deliver medicinal benefis. Brazil nuts, largely because of their high selenium content, have a huge impact on thyroid health & inflammation. Beyond that, they can improve sperm production & motility, increase HDL cholesterol and combat depression!

Guess what? Brazil nuts aren't actually nuts! They are seeds from a larger nut. I had no idea!! The nut looks a lot like a coconut and inside are encapsulated seeds - the things we consider brazil nuts!

Tune in to hear who should eat some brazil nuts, who shouldn't, what you want to look for when you're buying them and how many is too many!

I don't watch much television but I really enjoy Showtime's Billions.

On a recent episode, Wendy Rhoades, an in-house psychiatrist for a prominent hedge fund, is counseling a one of the firm's executives.

The executive is struggling because the firm profited from a major disaster. It was a moral struggle and a question of right and wrong.

Wendy was clear & direct. She said, when you're here, "mind the truth that makes you money".

I paused the show and wrote it down.

We find ourselves in all sorts of true moments. We want the cookies. A second glass of wine would taste amazing. We're tired. All true, right?

There are truths that take us in all directions. Truths that keep is where we are. Truths that move us forward. Truths that take us further from our goals.

In today's episode we're riffing off that idea from Billions: mind the truth that moves you forward.

Want to know how to eat carbs without getting fat? Today's episode is all about what happens when you eat carbs and strategies for eating them in a way that reduces the chances they'll be converted to & stored as fat. Plus, we'll talk about the common mistakes that create an internal environment where even small amounts of carbs you consume are converted to & stored as fat.

Carbs aren't bad. That's just not true. The flip side of that is that they are not an essential fuel source, despite what you might have heard. They are, however, quite yummy and can be enjoyed in a way that doesn't lead to weight gain. We're clearing all this up in today's episode so don't miss it!

Do you ever read something that makes you immediately level up your actions or effort? I sure do and I love it when that happens!

I'm no longer intrigued by things that sound nice. I'm only intrigued by things I can act on immediately. I'm intrigued by things that help me improve what I do & how I act. My mind is full of ideas. I think we need to know less but do more. 

Today's episode is about something that moved me to action and immediately increased my effort. It's an Instagram post from CrossFit athlete Dan Bailey. After injury and surgery, here's what he had to say: 

"Currently a little over 3 weeks out from surgery after rupturing my quad tendon. Still pretty swollen but it’s getting better every week.

Progress isn’t measured in lbs and kilos but centimeters of knee flexion and reduction in swelling (that and setting a goal to bench 4 wheels). Everyday starts with a POD attitude (performance on demand @tosh.crookedbutterfly) meaning, this is the best your going to feel today, even though your knee looks like a softball, that doesn’t really matter, performance is still demanded, so what can you do mentally, physically and spiritually to increase your work capacity? I’d be lying if I said this is what happens everyday but it’s what I shoot for."

What can you do mentally, physically & spiritually to increase your work capacity?

This challenged me and made my day better. Today's episode will do the same for you. Take a listen!

If you want to change your body, you have to change your mind. Your thoughts and perspectives drive your choices & too many people are trying to white-knuckle improved choices without making the adjustment that truly drives change: changing your mind. In today's episode we're talking about making a shift away from a serious detractor from success: searching for solutions outside yourself. It's a distraction and your journey becomes about everything and everyone other than YOU.

We're tackling a whole bunch of topics including:

  • Why eating every few hours isn't needed to "keep your metabolism going"
