Plus, I'm also going to give you access to a totally free 28-pg guide to the most effective fat loss strategies! It's usually $97 but between now (December 3rd 2015) and December 31st, you can get it totally free!

We create these busy, detailed plans and then we get lost in the details. Today I simplify it for you!

I say all the time that motivation isn't something that strikes the fortunate. Not at all, in fact. Motivation is something you have to CHOOSE to create EVERY day! Of course, as soon as I say that, the first and most obvious question is "how??" In today's episode we're tackling just that - how to create motivation. I am going to share 11 powerful motivators from my favorite book, Ryan Holiday's The Obstacle Is The Way.
Are protein shakes healthy? Can they help with fat loss? What is the best type of protein? What are the differences between whey, casein, soy and gelatin? Which is best? Should I buy isolate or concentrate? How important is grass fed? What about hormone free? Whoa. So much to consider, right?
In today's episode we'll be tackling all these questions and more!
There is a legit problem that keeps many people from reaching their fat loss and fitness goals. Actually, there are two major problems:
Lying about our options to make ourselves feel better.
I know, that sounds strong. But we're so used to telling ourselves that we're "doing our best" and we don't ever really stop to consider whether or not that's even true. 99% of the time it is not true. Not even close to true.
If you want to make progress, if you want to break out of the cycle of self-sabotage, if you want to bridge the gap between knowing what you need to do and actually doing it, you've got to stop making excuses.

This is probably the single most tactical episode of the Primal Potential podcast to date. If you encounter a recurring problem at work or at home, you know the steps to fix it, right? Typically, you document them. When the problem arises, you follow the steps. If your hot water stops working, you don't freak out about never having hot water again and not knowing what to do. You know the steps. Check the pilot light, etc. But we tend to lack that strategic thinking when it comes to food and fat loss. In today's episode, I will help you create your own Standard Operating Procedure for how to bounce back after a rough day, weekend or month.

Not only that, I'm going to give you access to a worksheet you can use to understand your own cravings to accelerate your progress in banishing them. Let's dive in.

If you are thinking, "I don't have time for a morning routine" then you are precisely the person who needs to listen to this episode on creating a morning routine. Before you poo-poo the idea, ask yourself this: "Who am I to suggest they aren't valuable when pretty much all of the most successful people in the world have deliberate morning routines?

Recently, the World Health Organization decreed that bacon & processed meats contain carcinogens and classified both in the same risk category as tobacco and asbestos.

There's a lot more to this story and I want to take the time today to go through some of the fine points and establish the bottom line.
I'm bracing myself! I know many of you aren't going to like what I have to say on this episode! The reason I think there will be resistance is because we live in a quick fix culture. We want what we want and we want it now. We don't want to wait. We don't care about the long term, we'll deal with that later, we just want to get results as fast as possible. This miiiiiight not be the best approach to fat loss. I can tell you from my own experience and my experience with clients that it is absolutely not!
In fact, I think there are two approaches to weight loss (and one usually doesn't work). You can either be playing the short term game or the long term game. The short term game is about speed. It's fueled by impatience which often backfires.

We'll overview the digestive process and identify at what stages things frequently go wrong and what we can do about it.
