You Need To Hear This Podcast – Is Live!


There is a lot to cover and I have a tendency to be tl;dr, so here is the condensed version.

Where Can I Download The Show?

For those of you who would like to help, my podcast would benefit the most from being downloaded and reviewed through iTunes. My goal is to be featured in the New & Noteworthy  section in the iTunes Store. In short, the more downloads I get in a short period of time, the more of a shot I have to make the list. It’s not a guarantee, but you’d be helping my chances.

I care very much about the ethics of reviews so I’ll simply say if you like what you hear and it helps you, it would be great if you could leave a few words. I’d appreciate it.

What Is The purpose of You Need To Hear This?

I wanted to change the atmosphere of what you normally hear on lifestyle design podcasts and do something different. The majority of people who teach and educate on becoming a fitter person or “happier” person, often miss out on the actual research and critical thought it takes to be knowledgeable on these subjects. What we often end up having are marketers masquerading as experts. I’m all for being successful but not at the cost of the information. Too often, the people who have something to say aren’t on the platform or audience level desired. We are certainly seeing this play out throughout this recent political cycle.

What makes us happy? What defines success for each of us? More

Martin Berkhan And Intermittent Fasting: Interview

It has been a few years now since Martin and I did this interview. I am updating it for a few reasons:

1. There are some small additions and specifics Martin has released since the initial interview. I thought readers would enjoy that aspect of it.

2. It was lonely on the old site with outdated graphics. I don’t feel it did it justice.

3. I have a lot coming up in the future about my own approaches with clients that involve fasting and cycling. It makes sense to have this here to point to during those articles.

One More Thing

I want to make something clear, and I don’t do this frequently in the area of nutrition. When Martin and I did this interview years ago, people scoffed at the idea of this protocol. They were caught up in their dogma of meal timing, 5-6 meals a day, and fasting ruining your metabolism. At the time, I remember looking into fasting on small levels and finding the results interesting and not supporting this general dogma. When Martin came along, I was extremely impressed with his level of knowledge on the subject and the depth his goes in his research and anecdotal work.

I have since done a lot of research myself on the subject and anecdotal work. Fasting and their protocols can come in all shapes and sizes, but I do believe there are intelligent and educated methods of applying the application. It has been seen as a taboo in the past, but hopefully people are opening their eyes to critical thinking and research on the subject, instead of wives tales or bad experiences from those lacking educated actions.

So, for those of you new to this or learning about it for the first time, keep an open mind on the science behind what has previously been ruined by fad propaganda. More

Does Age Hinder Weight Loss And Transformation?


There are all types of myths in regards to aging and weight loss. Everything from the “freshman 15” to someone saying “if only I could eat the way I used to when I was 20.” This isn’t only held to diet. I have had many clients say, “if only I had youth on my side again.” This brings us to the question – Does age hinder weight loss & transformation.

The short answer? Yes, of course it does.  The long answer is more complex and detailed. More

Blood Tests For Diet, Training, and Sanity

This may not be the sexiest article, but it is an extremely important one you should take seriously. The problems I see people face because of lazy testing, paranoia and lack of testing are overwhelming. Take a few minutes and write a few things down for your next check-up.

If we look at the current trend of doctor visits, people fall into 3 categories.

1. They don’t go to the doctor.
2. They go to the doctor, but run through the motions.
3. They go to the doctor and demand medical attention for the money they are spending. More
