One of the biggest arguments against adopting a healthier lifestyle is the additional expenses you have to undertake. When someone makes the leap to buying organic and natural foods and personal care items, when they get to the register and look down at their receipt, their jaw just might drop right onto the conveyor belt.

I've been there... a time or 72...

When I first made the decision to change the way I was eating, my grocery bill effectively doubled. I justified it for years saying that it will pay me back in dividends with my health. And in many ways it did. But that doesn't mean that there isn't a better way (with an easier onramp) to make switching to a healthier lifestyle much for fun and less stressful for those who are motivated to do so.

I know that many of us are the exception and we'll invest the extra money to get things we feel are much healthier. For most people, however, it just isn't worth the extra expense when you're just trying to get buy, let alone thrive in our world today.

Well, Gunnar Lovelace set out to do something about this. After battling with the reality that healthy foods and personal care products are at a premium, while more cost intensive toxic "commercial" products are cheaper, he decided that enough was enough.

Gunnar co-founded Thrive Market and helped to grow an amazing team who are revolutionizing the way that we purchase healthy products for ourselves and our families. I'm flat-out blown away by the difference Thrive Market is making. Today's episode will tell you exactly how they are able to do everything that they do, and get YOU the healthy foods and products that you and your family deserve.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What drove Gunnar Lovelace to find a way to make healthy food affordable for everyone.
  • How Thrive Market is able to sell organic, natural, non-GMO food and personal care products for upwards of 50% less than natural food markets like Whole Foods.
  • Why Thrive Market gives away a free membership along with every paid membership (this is powerful!).
  • Why healthier foods cost so much and how companies like fast food restaurants are able to sell unhealthy food so cheap.
  • What huge brands like Coca Cola and McDonald's are doing to get in on the healthy food action (should we trust them?).
  • Why keeping secrets in today's market is a losing game.
  • What healthy food and personal care items I buy for my family at Thrive Market.
  • Why Thrive Market chooses to provide the top in each category rather than 20 brands of the same thing.
  • Why Gunnar put such a huge emphasis on making Thrive Market a company that overdelivers on giving.
  • How Thrive Market has been structured to be able to give so much to those in need.
  • Why in today's world you can't afford NOT to eat healthy.
  • How Thrive Market's business model could be a catalyst for change in countries all over the world.

The most influential factor on your health and success in life is the health of your relationships.

Nothing can influence your mindset, motivation, decisions, and destination more than the people you travel through life with.

When you are with the right person, in the right situation, being healthy, fit, and happy can seem almost effortless. Sure, everyone has their challenges, but when two people come together with a common goal and real understanding, nothing can stand in the way of their power.

No matter where you are in your relationship right now (or if you're currently looking for the right relationship), I guarantee that you'll glean some powerful lessons from this episode that will last you a lifetime.

Darren and Danielle Natoni are two incredible people individually, but when they come together, they are truly a force to be reckoned with.

They are on a mission to teach and inspire other people to tap into their true fitness and health potential, and they are leading by example.

Remember, no one is more influential than the person you choose to spend the rest of your life with. If you want to have an exceptional relationship, then you have to make it a study. It's not about perfection, it's about the process and wanting to grow and be better. It starts with learning from great examples. So, let the show begin!

  • How having parents who exercise and lead a healthy lifestyle can to impact their kids.
  • How Darren went from a soccer player, to a DJ, to a federal agent, to a top health & fitness spokesperson (pretty incredible to say the least!)

  • How to hold your significant other accountable with their health and fitness (without getting on their nerves).
  • Why Danielle says that everything is a discussion when it comes to building a health relationship.
  • Why accepting the other person in a relationship as they are is so important to long-term happiness.
  • How to instantly lessen the irritation from things your partner does that annoys you.
  • What tips you can use to help you and your loved one stay motivated in your workouts.
  • Why proactively getting outside your comfort zone is so critical to success.
  • How to stay consistent in your fitness & nutrition even when you're extremely busy.
  • How Darren was able to maintain a great level of fitness even when he couldn't workout normally due to injury (great lesson here!)
  • The secret thing Danielle does to show up as a better wife and a better mom.

Ben Greenfield walks his talk. He's one of the top health and fitness experts in the world because he's experimented with thousands of things firsthand and monitored the results that he got with his body. What works is shared ravenously; what doesn't is discarded. Pretty simple formula, but you've got to have some serious kahunas to do it.

I'm truly excited to have Ben on because he has a wealth of knowledge in so many different areas of health. Today you're going to learn some effective (yet little known) strategies for fat loss, surprising facts about building muscle, and even the real reason why Ben partakes in heart-pumping endurance events like triathlons and Spartan races (and it's not about fitness).
