      Shawn- enjoyed the show & love That you bring quality guests that walk the line they preach. Ameer Rosic was very spot on regarding nutrition and going back to the basics practiced from past generations (cycles)and dispelling workout myths. He mentioned ideal time to workout was 4 PM, which differs from your views expressed on The Art of Charm where you said working out in the AM was best. Agree or disagree with his assessment and why?

        MAS, thank you so much. Truly! And that’s a great question. Our opinion is actually the same regarding performance being heightened in the late afternoon. In Sleep Smarter I mention this, and utilize this myself by training frequently at around 4pm. I recommend doing SOME type of physical exertion in the a.m. though for the sleep/hormone optimizing benefits. Could be a power walk, yoga, when you hit the gym, or whatever it may be.

        I usually do a 30 minute power walk in the morning and listen to a podcast or audiobook. Then I train at 4 if it’s one of my lifting days.

        Thanks for the great question, and thanks for tuning in!

    Thank you for so much – I loved this podcast and got a lot of information out of it. For one – that 80% of serotonin originates from your gut. Did not know that. I’m also going to try kettle bells as my high intensity training. Thank you again for such wonderful information and motivating me to take better care of myself. My downfall is one soda/day during the work week. And a few beers on the weekend. Trying to make better choices….

      Laurel, thank you so much for sharing that! I think those new additions sound good.
      Speaking of new editions, it may be a better idea for you to add-in instead of trying to STOP the other behavior. Seriously… which one feels better?

      Let’s start by adding in a higher quality soda. Real talk, it’s still soda, but you can do better with one made with more natural ingredients. Look for something reasonable at Whole Foods. Second, you could swap the one soda a week out for one kombucha a week. Try one of the berry or mango flavors. And the beer… same thing. Go for stuff that has truly higher standards in the processing. And always remember how awesome you are!
