TMHS 069: Super Nutrition And Total Human Optimization – With Aubrey Marcus


If we’re going to be successful in the field of nutrition, then we’ve got to come to the realization that EVERYTHING you put into your body has an impact.

Whether you’re eating a walnut or a doughnut, it will change every cell in your body at some level. Food is truly that powerful.

It’s time we start to leverage this to look and feel the way that we want. I often tell people that food isn’t just food, it’s information. And we need to start asking questions like: What kind of information am I putting into my body?

Before you make a decision to eat a food, take a supplement, or take a drug, just take a second and contemplate what this substance is commanding your body to do. Are you making a food choice that is commanding your body to secrete more insulin than it can handle, store more fat, and damage your metabolism? You can literally command your body to do this with a bottle of Mountain Dew.

3 reasons you need to change your protein powder

3 Reasons You Need To Change Your Protein Powder

Protein powders are as synonymous with fitness as tough workouts, competition, and yoga pants. (I want to give a special shout out to the creator of yoga pants… Thank you, where ever you are.)

Even though the protein supplement market has been oversaturated and misunderstood, the reality is that: Human beings are protein machines.

All the way down to our DNA, you’ll find instructions for building our brain, digestive system, muscles, immune cells, and so much more out of protein building blocks.

To build new structures, we must provide our bodies with the raw materials it needs to make it happen. You can’t build your muscle out of cheese fries and Doritos (believe me, I tried). And if your body is deficient in the protein building blocks it needs, you will breakdown faster, and live a poorer quality life as a result.

Boost Your Fat Loss

TMHS 068: Boost Your Fat Loss With These 5 Tips For A Healthy Liver


You’re going to be shocked to find out how much your liver function impacts your body’s fat loss (or lack thereof). Your liver is often referred to as the “second brain” of your body, and for good reason.

Your liver has responsibilities in regulating hormone function, assimilating nutrients, and handling insulin, just to name a few. All of these function are critical to your health, and all of these functions are also critical to your metabolism.

When looking to lose body fat, we tend to jump to the “external” things we can do, not understanding that fat loss is really an inside job.

It’s the function and performance of your body’s major fat-burning organs that will tell the tale of your fat loss long-term.

Healthy tips for Entrepreneurs

TMHS 067: 5 Health & Performance Tips For Entrepreneurs (And Anyone Interested In High Performance Overall!)


Whether you consider yourself an entrepreneur or not, there are facets of your life that you need to run the lead on. You may be the CEO of a major organization, or the CEO of your house and kids. The word entrepreneur comes from the French word entreprende which means ‘to undertake’. When you undertake the responsibility of being the boss, it’s essential that you know how to keep your health and energy up to par.

Many entrepreneurs don’t do well because they don’t feel well. Many more entrepreneurs have no idea about the profits and impact they’re leaving on the table because they don’t have the energy to move on opportunities when they present themselves. As a matter of fact, they are missing on opportunities left and right because they can’t even see them in the first place!

There is a story of a man walking along who was always frustrated, irritated, and in poor health. He tripped over something sticking up out of the ground, and cursed at it as he stumbled to catch his balance. He never looked down, just continued on in his agitation and frustration on how life would not cut him a break.

There was another man who was considered an optimist walking along. He was in good health, happy, and tended to look for the best in things. He went walking down the same path as the frustrated man and tripped over the same thing sticking up out of the ground. He caught his balance, looked down to see what it was, and it was a piece of gold that had been wedged into the earth. He exclaimed, “This is my lucky day!”, and reached down, dug the piece of gold out, and went on about his day.

How Food Impacts your genetics

TMHS 066: How Food Impacts Your Genetics And 4 Steps For Reaching Your Highest Genetic Potential


I remember R&B artist Genuwine had a hit song called “In Those Jeans” a few years back. Though the spelling is different from the genes we’re talking about here today, the objective is still the same. Let me explain…

The song is about getting in the jeans of the hottest person possible. Sexually charged: Yes. Unintentionally scientific: You better believe it.

We all want to get in the genes of our most vibrant, healthy and attractive self. Understanding that you do, in fact, have the power to change your genetic expression is one of the most important discoveries you’ll ever make.

Our society has been indoctrinated with this idea that your genes control everything about you. Your genes are the governing entity that will determine your health and longevity, and even control your success in life to a large extent. This is called genetic determinism, but it’s really the best free pass ever to give up on yourself.
