Sometimes I wonder how things that are so simple can be so powerful (and yet so overlooked). When we talk about fasting, we are talking about something that's deeply connected to the highest expression of our genes.

Fasting, itself, is an epigenetic trigger that "turns on" certain programs inciting your DNA to print out better copies of you. To put it simply, fasting can make you sexier, well... fast.

You're about to go on a life-changing ride and discover how fasting impacts your brain function, metabolism, aging process, and more. And I guarantee you'll be compelled to make some changes in your life to at least get a slice of what the health benefits of fasting can deliver.

There are many different types of fasts, but you can actually get most of the benefits while still being able to eat everyday if you utilize one of the strategies I'm going to share with you.

The benefits of fasting are clinically proven in study after study, and they're just too good to pass up. Time to learn the facts, dispel the myths, and utilize a plan to keep you healthy for many years to come!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What fasting actually means.
  • 7 different types of fasts you can do.
  • What a micronutrient fast is.
  • 8 incredible health benefits of fasting.
  • How fasting is related to fat loss.
  • What hormones are influenced by fasting.
  • How fasting dramatically impacts your brain health.
  • Why fasting could be one of the greatest anti-aging secrets in the world.
  • How human lifespans are actually shorter when compared to other animals.
  • Why fasting is an evolutionary benefit.
  • The surprising way that fasting impacts cancer.
  • How fasting influences your body's ability to handle carbohydrates.
  • Why fasting can be helpful for improving digestion.
  • Why personal development has a deep connection to fasting.
  • How fasting affects emotional well-being (this is shocking!)
  • How fasting affects inflammation and healing.

Today we are dealing with a major deficiency in our culture.

Sure we’re dealing with an epidemic of nutritional deficiencies… but there is an even bigger deficiency I’m talking about.

It’s a deficiency in knowing our purpose.

Statistically, people who know who they are and live with a sense of purpose outlive everyone else in the population.

Not only that, they experience far fewer chronic illnesses, far less memory loss, and more happiness in life overall.

It kind of makes sense when you think about it. Your mind and body really work on a “use it or lose it basis”. And if you are not inspired to use your body and mental faculties each day, why on earth would they be compelled to stick around?

Your purpose is literally tied to your lifeline. And today is the day to get fully connected with who you are, why you’re here, and what you’re all about.

Today’s show is loaded with insights to help you reveal what Paulo Coelho would call your own “personal legend”.

There’s actually a formula for uncovering your life’s purpose. It’s incredibly simple, but it’s only applicable if you’re ready for it.

So, if you’re ready, click play, listen with your heart, and take action on the exercises. Let’s go!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why you actually get to choose what your brain is made of.
  • How a sense of purpose impacts aging and development.
  • How purpose means different things to different people.
  • Why having lots of choices can become debilitating.
  • What the formula for finding your purpose is.
  • Why failure can be a huge launching pad to uncovering your purpose.
  • What important questions to ask yourself in order to flesh out your purpose.
  • How passion really ties into finding your purpose (and it’s not what you think!)
  • Why making a decision to live your purpose is often the hardest thing to do.
  • What the word decision really means and how to build your decision-making muscles.
  • Important caveats about living your purpose that involves other people (you won’t be happy without this!)
  • Why it’s CRITICAL to understand your own personal nature.

This conversation with biomechanist and award-winning writer Katy Bowman instantly changed my life.

Because I’m a very analytical person, sometimes I like to know the WHY before I jump head over heels into something.

Katy broke down exactly why movement matters so much, and how myself and many others are fooling ourselves when it comes to living an active lifestyle.

Even though I’ve been exercising for many years, and I even appeared to be fit on the outside, I was actually in the growing number of people who are classified as “actively sedentary”.

This was a serious gut check for me.

According to the research, even though exercise is awesome and incredibly good for us, it’s not tapping into our best genetic expression by a long shot.

You see, even if you work out for an hour a day, you are still only four percent more active than someone who doesn’t exercise at all! That four percent absolutely makes a difference, but when it boils down to it, one hour of activity doesn’t hold a candle to what we do the other 23 hours of the day.

I’ve made many strides over the years to combat this disparagement. Standing desk, periodic breaks for mobility work, and even the occasional walk in the middle of the work day. I knew these things made me feel better, but I also knew I would forgo them on a consistent basis because I was trying to get my work done first.

After listening to this episode again, I immediately took a nice walk. But this walk was different from any walk I’ve ever been on.

I was paying attention to things I had never noticed before. I had a real awareness of how valuable that walk was, and the small things I was doing during it that made the experience for my body even better.

What you’re about to learn from Katy today will likely change your life in an empowering way forever. These insights and tips will help you to realize some of the problems that have been hiding in plain sight, and give you the tools to break through them once and for all!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why consume conventional animal foods can create inflammation.
  • What a biomechanics are and how they impact to your life.
  • Why exercise and movement are not really the same thing.
  • How your environment shapes your body.
  • What nutritious movement is.
  • Why walking is equivalent to a macronutrient.
  • How your body actually adapts to things you put on your body (it’s shocking how much shoes can change you!)
  • Why just like “junk food” there is also “junk moving”.
  • What it means to be actively sedentary.
  • What cellular loads are (this is important!)
  • How killer whales in captivity can demonstrate the way our environment dictates our cellular expression.
  • How underwear can inhibit the natural function of your organs and tissues.
  • Why constantly self-regulating the temperature in your environment can prevent important muscles from developing.
  • What you can do to move your DNA and add more nutritious movement to your day.

Food matters.

Eating food is one of the most intimate things that we’ll ever experience in life. You are literally taking something from outside of yourself and deciding (consciously or unconsciously) to make it a part of you.

If we’re asleep to the real power of food, we won’t realize that every-single-thing we eat is changing every-single-cell in our bodies. Your genes, your DNA, your upwards of 100 trillion cells, are all in action to convert that chosen food into more you.

Now, here’s the real kicker of the situation…

You get to CHOOSE what you’re made out of. You can make yourself out of the most vitalizing, storied, health-giving foods in the world - or you can make yourself out of Honey Buns, Fruit Loops, Cheetos, and Skittles.

Grass-fed steak, bananas, or bagels… the choice is always up to you.

Now, that can be incredibly empowering, or incredibly scary depending on where your mindset is at.

Navigating this world of food today takes a special kind of awareness and heart. That's why we brought on our special guest today, because he’s all heart, he developed awareness through experience, and he can make you a meal that will bring tears to your eyes (like that single tear rolling down your cheek seen only in a movie scene).

Our guest today is New York Times bestselling author George Bryant (also known as the man behind Civilized Caveman Cooking). Today is going to be a real treat because the Civilized Caveman himself is here to share his story and his secrets with you.

We’re going to talk about our crucial relationship with food, overcoming eating disorders, deeply impacting the lives of others, recipes that will change your life, plus a whole lot more.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How you can be a master in the kitchen in a lot less time than you think.
  • Why a “degree” is not the solution to helping people.
  • Why the food you make yourself and your family matters more than anything.
  • What a triggering event means in relationship to eating disorders.
  • What some of the symptoms of bulimia really are.
  • How George was able to finally overcome bulimia (this is a powerful story!)
  • Why authenticity, congruency, and vulnerability are essential to long-term success.
  • How to make S.M.A.R.T. commitments to yourself and others.
  • Why it’s important to speak up in order to gain support in our lives.
  • How our relationship with food shapes our life.
  • Why an obsession with eating healthy can also be problematic.
  • How our perception of food creates our experience of eating.
  • What some of the Civilized Caveman’s favorite recipes are (you don’t want to miss this!)
