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.

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 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.

Mike Dolce is a game-changer.

He has helped athletes go from good to great for years, but what he’s doing to the face of sports performance is legendary.

We all know that our society looks to athletes as a hallmark of what health and fitness should look like. The problem is that for decades top athletes have allowed their likeness to be slapped onto sports drinks, energy bars, breakfast cereals and other processed junk that is clinically proven to cause things like blood sugar disorders, gut dysbiosis, allergies, mineral deficiencies, and even obesity.

The athletes we admire as a society often train for hours a day, yet the foods they recommend are mostly consumed by people with a sedentary lifestyle and, even worse, young children.

Mike has ushered in a brand new approach to fitness and nutrition that’s based on earth-grown nutrients and real food. His athletes dominate their sport and also dominate the headlines (maybe you’ve heard of Rowdy Ronda Rousey?), which is making the rest of the world take note in a major way and making The Dolce Diet become a household name.

Mike’s approach and passion are helping us to move out of the junk food and supplement dark ages and into the golden age of real food and true longevity. Find out what Mike’s tried-and-true approach to nutrition and exercise is, and the incredible story of how this legendary trainer got his start in the first place.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What unique achievements Mike Dolce brings to MMA and why his mission is far bigger than the world of athletics.
  • The incredible story of what inspired Mike to get into health and fitness in the first place.
  • What Mike’s foundational approach to nutrition is.
  • What category of food is extremely difficult to overeat.
  • Whether or not counting calories is vital to your success.
  • How food manufacturer’s have been able to override our body’s natural satiety mechanism and make us eat more (this is crazy!)
  • Why The Dolce Diet puts such a large focus on longevity.
  • Why Mike cuts weight right alongside his athlete’s (this puts him in a league of his own!)
  • What the Mike Dolce Breakfast Bowl is and why it’s so popular.
  • Why being warm and friendly is a conscious part of Mike’s health practice.
  • What specific benchmarks everyone should strive to achieve in their exercise.
  • Why Mike does “progressive overload” and how it can work to improve your performance.

It’s not often that you meet someone like Steph Gaudreau.

After leaving a comfy job teaching high school science to pursue her passions in health and fitness, she’s one of the rare individuals who set out to reinvent themselves after you’d think that it was too late.

That’s the big issue. It’s the thinking involved that hinders so many of us. Steph didn’t make the leap without having fear. She didn’t take a huge risk knowing exactly what was going to happen. Fear was there, uncertainty was there, but she made the decision to do it anyway.

Whether it’s in our health, career, relationships, or anything else, it’s within our power to make the shifts necessary.

Today you’re going to hear about Steph’s story and how she made the transition from the conventional classroom to teaching online (and all over the world). You’re also going to learn some of the key insights that has enabled Steph to be so successful in helping other people, as well what her person fitness regimen looks like so you can see what keeps her fit, strong, and huge inspiration to others.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What drove Steph Gaudreau to leave her 10+ year job as a science teacher to start a solo career promoting health and fitness.
  • How certain body types lend themselves towards better performance in certain sports.
  • Why Steph no longer obsesses about the way her body looks (this is powerful!)
  • How doing what you love will help to change your inner dialogue/inner critic.
  • Why your body’s form will follow the function that’s required of it.
  • Why the exercise that you do transfers over into other areas of your life.
  • How your personality gains strength through lifting weights.
  • What crazy good numbers Steph has achieved on her favorite power lifts.
  • Why deadlifting is important for reversing and preventing back problems.
  • How Steph’s exercise program has changed over time and what it looks like today.
  • Why being “harder to kill” is a compelling drive to get healthier.
  • Why food is a “gateway” to a healthier overall lifestyle.
