Have you ever had a perfect day?

It’s a day where everything seems to be in your favor. You accomplish all of the things you want. You feel happy and fulfilled. And you go to bed at night wishing that everyday can be just like this.

Aaaaah… It’s a day that has that new car smell. It’s feeling like you have the Midas touch. It’s when life is just flat out awesome.

So, why can’t we have more perfect days like that? Well, the obvious answer is because a lot of crap happens in our life, and it can take our wish of a perfect day and throw it right into the garbage disposal.

The less obvious answer is because we forfeited having our perfect day because we didn’t know the simple, proven steps to create it. The breaking news flash today is that we CAN construct more perfect days. But we have to decide to stop spending our days playing the game of crap-dodgeball that life is flinging at us. We have to be proactive and activate The Perfect Day Formula. And you’re about to meet just the man to help you do it.

There’s a lot more to healing than meets the eye. Whether you’re healing from a tough workout, or healing from a chronic heart condition, numerous forces have to come together make it happen.

Hormones, lymphocytes, inflammatory cytokines, and several other intelligent entities in your body take action to set the ship right when things go wrong. You can either help or hinder your system from doing it’s job. And these are the facts.

If you get a big cut on your arm, and you pack the cut full of crumbled up M&M’s, chances are it’s not going to heal properly. However, if you apply some fresh aloe, and you take some natural anti-inflammatories that also support recovery, like the active compound in turmeric (curcumin), you are supporting your body in normal healing. So, yes, nutrition and smart hygiene matter in recovery, but there’s something else that gets overlooked.

Research shows conclusively that your mind and thoughts have a huge impact on the healing (or lack thereof) of your body. Stress, pessimism, worry, anger, depression… all of these things suppress your body’s natural healing capabilities. Try as your body may, it’s very difficult to make the changes you truly need when your mind-body connection is not in sync. That’s why today’s show is so important.

Today we are covering some of the most valuable insights on strengthening your mind-body connection. To help us out, we are fortunate to have on Tristan Truscott who has an amazing story of healing, and coming back from a place that many other people would’ve long given up on. He’s going to share his immense wisdom and provide you with some crucial tips that will likely last you a lifetime. Now, on to the show!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why you can appear to be tough on the outside but still scared on the inside
  • How helping others to protect themselves nearly destroyed Tristan’s health.
  • How you can easily be distracted from the pain signals your body is trying to send you.
  • Why physical problems are often a results of a deeper issue.
  • Why investing your energy to helping others can make you healthy as well.
  • The surprising impact that qigong has on sleep quality.
  • How qigong actually works to reduce stress and accelerate healing.
  • How movement meditations integrate stress-defense into your tissues.
  • Why stress aggravates depression.
  • What it means to “scratch up the CD” of your negative memories.
  • How reducing stress can result in weight loss.
  • How your body absorbs energy from far more than food.

The first time I tried to lose weight it was by drinking Slim-Fast shakes. The marketing said, “Have a shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch, and then have a sensible dinner.”

I gulped down that sludge of artificial nutrition, followed the plan, and the pounds started coming off. I was happy that it was working. But my victory was short lived.

Being on that plan, and focusing on calories rather than nutrition, left me with a ferocious appetite that would see me overeat at the end of the day… and then a snack… and another snack… until my will power just couldn’t take it anymore. Drinking that can of liquid denial was leaving me nutrient deficient, anxious, and ultimately blocking my weight loss efforts.

You see, it didn’t matter that I was a good person. It didn’t matter that I really wanted to lose weight. It didn’t matter that I tried really hard. Not a single one of those things matter because if my goal is one way, but my plan is taking me in the opposite direction, I’m ultimately going to end up somewhere that I don’t want to be.

Really great, smart people fall victim to clever marketing all the time, especially in the weight loss arena. It’s something so visceral, and so desired for all of us to feel comfortable in our own skin that we’ll cut corners and buy into the next new fad diet without giving it a second thought.

We try, we fail, but we don’t really seem to learn the lesson in this dirty dieting dance. But today that’s all about to change.

Our guest on this episode is the New York Times bestselling author of The Calorie Myth, Jonathan Bailor. He’s on today to drop some serious knowledge bombs when it comes to our mindset and beliefs around losing weight. After checking out this episode, make sure to check the links below for access to his past appearances on the show and special admission to his free half-day masterclass.

Our weight loss battles do not have to be fought alone. True, no one else can do your push-ups for you, but good friends and mentors who really care can guide the way, keep you accountable, and help you change your mind so that you can truly change your body.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why basing your diet around calorie counting can set you up for failure.
  • What nutritional serenity is.
  • Why obesity in not an effort problem.
  • How drinking gasoline can give you a huge understanding of how calories work (crazy, but you’ll see why!).
  • How type 1 diabetes makes you starve to death.
  • Why understanding your goals is critical to the weight loss approach you take.
  • What important weight loss lesson you can learn from Oprah Winfrey.
  • Why calories matter, yet you might want to stop calorie-counting and do this instead
  • Why “slowing down the problem” is not a real solution.
  • What the 3 biggest economic burdens are in our world today (this is shocking!).

When I was in college, there weren’t any classes on success. There wasn’t a Success 101 course. If there was, I would’ve been there.

There were a lot of classes on the fundamentals… math, science, writing, and even courses dedicated to our majors (like business, engineering, computer science, and health), but there wasn’t any classes that taught us how to put it all together. I’m charged to report that even the best colleges in the world fail to teach us how to actually be successful in our chosen field, let alone in life in general.

Right now it’s more important than ever to grab the study of success by the horns. Life, health, and happiness can quickly run away from you if you’re not fortunate enough to know what makes a successful life versus what allows us to just get by.

Recently, I felt that my formal education experience could lend a hand by giving a framework to discuss what success really looks like.

Anatomy is the study of structure or the internal workings of things. Today we’re going to be breaking down the anatomy of success and take a deep look at the internal workings of passion, commitment, and fulfillment.

Success isn’t merely a metaphysical thing. There are specific principles and insights that will make this the sweetest science you’ll ever learn. So, pull up to the blackboard, grab your notebook, and let the fun begin!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • The #1 muscle you need to develop to create a successful life.
  • Why indecision is often the biggest decision.
  • Why it’s great to be an amateur.
  • How The Model Health Show came into existence.
  • How to exercise your most important success muscle.
  • Why is critical to dissect your beliefs.
  • What creates your worldview and how to change it.
  • Why expectation is so influential on success.
  • How developing more compassion changes our lives.
  • What it means to digest greatness.
  • How to detox the garbage from your life.
