Primal Potential

The Primal Potential Podcast is about transformation, not information. So many of us KNOW what we need to do to achieve our goals but we aren't DOING it. There's a continuous gap between our INTENTIONS and our ACTIONS. Primal Potential is a TOOL to help you create massive change in your life and ENJOY the journey!

Fact: We all get older.

Myth: Getting older means increased body fat, decreased energy, memory issues, joint pain and chronic illness.

You can age well. You can get or stay lean. You can maintain energy and cognitive function.


Fact: We all have genes.

Myth: Genes determine how you age.

We can control the expression of our genes. We can turn gene expression on or off, up or down, by the way we eat, sleep, move and stress.


It's been a long time since we've done a book review episode but that's exactly what we're doing today! I highly recommend Dr. Sara Gottfried's newest book: Younger.

I'll be sharing some of the highlights from the book along with what changes I'll be making in my own life as a result of reading it.

I'm not immune to temptation or moments of apathy. I absolutely have moments, days and even weeks where I think thoughts like, "Who cares? What's the point?"

I absolutely have moments (and days) when I want to eat all the things that aren't nailed down.

I'm not different from most people in that regard. However, I might be a little different in how I respond to them.

In today's episode, I'm sharing a simple and powerful strategy I use to win the hard moments in my life.

If you struggle with temptation, apathy or mentally checking out, this is a great episode for you!

I hope everyone listens to this episode! My friend: once you go beyond the wonderful age of 30, you will lose muscle mass unless you intentionally and consistently work to maintain or increase it.

This rate of muscle loss can range from 3-8% per decade! Think about that! You could have 16% less muscle mass by the age of 50!

Why does this matter?

Contrary to popular belief, this isn't just a cosmetic issue related to body composition. It's not just about strength, balance and mobility.

We need to take action to prevent muscle loss and faciliate muscle building in order to stay healthy, prevent diabetes, have a healthy metabolism and much, more more.

Sarcopenia, or age-related muscle wasting, is both reversible and preventable. Today we will explore the systemic impact of sarcopenia on your health and discuss what you can do about it! Don't miss this episode!

What's your bliss point? That's the conversation I want to have with you as we go into the holiday season.

For me, feeling amazing during the holidays has as much to do with my mindset as it does to do with my choices. Probably even more. I used to go into the holidays with a ton of anxiety. I was worried about the food that would be available. I worried about overeating and I worried about restriction and missing out.

It didn't work. I wasn't happy. I wasn't enjoying myself.

Now, I think about my bliss point. The intersection of enjoyment and feeling amazing.

This is actually a common marketing term!

A bliss point is the amount of consumption that maximizes a customer's satisfaction for a particular good or service. For example, the bliss point of ice cream might be one small bowl and the bliss point for travel might be one trip a month. A customer who exceeds their bliss point may feel stressed, unsatisfied or regretful. Bliss point is purely related to a customer's needs and wants as opposed to budget. It has implications for product design, customer experience, diversification and pricing. (Simplicable.com)

As you go into a holiday, a family meal or even a weekend or evening out - what is the intersection of feeling great about your choices and fully enjoying yourself?

This week, my whole perspective changed. I won't sugar coat it: I've been stressed out. I'm been anxious. I've been indulging thoughts of fear and worry. Then, something really powerful and unexpected it happened. It blew my mind and I think it will really floor you, too. It changed my whole perspective and I hope I never, ever forget this lesson!

If you've been stressed, worried, anxious or unsure, please don't miss this episode!

I love when you ask questions and suggest topics for the podcast. You know why? Because that's the whole point of the Primal Potential podcast! The entire goal is to help you help yourself! This is your podcast and my sole objective is to help you help yourself live a happier, healthier life! If you have questions or are struggling, be sure to let me know so we can begin to work through them on the show!

Just the other day on Instagram, I asked what questions or topics you'd like to hear about on the podcast. A ton of of you submitted questions and I've divided them into two episodes.

In episode 534 we talked about binge eating, the holidays, travel and resisting negativity. Today, we're taking a hard right turn. I'm answering your questions about starting a business, overcoming procrastination, recovering from workouts and, though seemingly random, what's behind acid reflux and what (surprising) thing you can do to make it better.

Too many of us stay busy doing things that don't really matter. We live in a self-created vortex of tasks and work, rarely pausing to consider:

  • Is this necessary?
  • Is it working?
  • Is it improving my life?
  • Is the return on this worth the time and energy it requires?

I read something the other day that I'm certain will improve my relationships, my work-life and my health. Not surprisingly, it wasn't about relationships or health; it was about real estate.

When rennovating homes, most people spend money where it doesn't need to be spent. They aren't disciplined in how they deploy their funds. To counteract this tendency, they're taught to break down potential home improvements into the following categories:

  1. Necessary and increases value
  2. Unnecessary and increases value
  3. Necessary and does not increase value
  4. Unnecessary and does not increase value

In today's episode of the podcast, we're talking about the application of this practice to our task lists, our communication and our goals.

I hope you enjoy it!

If I challenged you to complete a broad jump - to leap forward as far as you can - where would you place your feet before jumping? If your feet are spread too wide, you lose power. You can't initate a powerful leap if your feet are spread wider than your hips. Similarly, you can't jump as far if your feet are too close together. It's pretty common for fitness coaches and trainers to correct someone's stance. If your feet aren't in the right place, you can't perform well.

The same thing is true in life. Your power stance, in life, isn't about where you put your feet but rather where you put your attention. If your attention is on the past or the future, you're losing power to take full advantage of the moment you're in.

If you want to immediately become a more powerful change agent in your own life, listen to today's episode.
