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.
Are you taking a synthetic supplement that will overstimulate your nervous system and make you think that you have more energy… when you’re really just burning out your adrenal glands?
We have to take more responsibility for what we are putting into our bodies so that we can rise above the disease, poor performance, and struggle that has become common place in our society.
Knowing all of this, it’s not a small thing to take a supplement. You’d better know what’s in that supplement, where it comes from, and whether or not the human body even recognizes it in the first place.
Today we’ve got on the CEO of a company that is focused on what they call Total Human Optimization. Everyone from professional athletes to top executives are rushing to get their hands on the products and information that this company has put together.
Onnit is a brand that’s making huge waves in the fitness and nutrition industry by standing for something unique. It’s not just about the incredible supplements they carry (that are actually derived from earth grown nutrients), it’s about the food you eat, it’s about the exercise you do, and it’s about the lifestyle you take on to bring it all together and make it work.
The CEO of Onnit, Aubrey Marcus, cares about people, cares about service, and cares about making a real impact. He’s a leader that really walks his talk, and he’s about to share a wealth of information with you that can improve your life for many years to come.
