Most Limits Exist Only In Our Minds

Learn how to break beyond them
Friday, March 9, 2018, 8:26 PM

Roger Bannister died last week.

Even if you don't recognize his name, you're aware of his legacy: he was the first human to run a mile in under 4 minutes.

More than simply breaking a record, Roger Bannister's greater legacy was proving to the world that limits are largely set by the mind. When we fail (or more accurately put, fail to try hard enough), it's often because we believe we can't succeed.

Bannister's example showed us that by changing our mindset -- by being open-minded to success -- we can change our universe of potential outcomes. The 'impossible' becomes possible. » Read more

Stepping Way Out Of The Comfort Zone

Adam takes a big risk for charity
Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 9:21 AM

Most people have nightmares about finding themselves onstage in front of an audience with no idea what they're doing. Perhaps an even worse fear is finding yourself naked (or nearly so) in public.

Mash those two phobias together and you pretty much get how last weekend went for me. » Read more

The New Me (Round 2)

Adam's story

Chris Kresser: Functional Health

More options for living better & longer
Sunday, September 28, 2014, 5:42 PM

In today's discussion, we explore the world of "functional medicine" and other approaches to health and wellness that offer potential to complement, or in cases, replace conventional western medical treatment. Some of these practices have been used by eastern cultures for millennia, others are just coming to light now. But the common thread in each is to focus on the biological uniqueness of each patient and use an evidence-based approach to identify and resolve the underlying condition -- rather than merely treating the symptoms, which modern health care (sometimes referred to instead as "sick care") is often guilty of. » Read more

Mark Sisson: Why Nutrition Is The Key To Health

Our diet determines which genes get activated
Saturday, August 16, 2014, 9:51 PM

This week, Mark Sisson -- former professional athlete, founder of Mark's Daily Apple, and developer of the Primal Blueprint health & fitness lifestyle -- returns to discuss nutrition. In his opinion, it's the single most important factor for a healthy life.

While other key components like physical exertion, good sleep, de-stressing and sun exposure contribute to overall health and well-being, too (see our 2013 interview with Mark for a full background on his recommended regime), the food we eat can literally determine which of the genes in our genetic code get activated and expressed. So, in a very real way, we indeed are what we eat. » Read more

Robb Wolf: The Science Behind Healthy Diet & Fitness

And how good health takes less time than we think
Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 11:36 PM

This podcast puts the focus on practical behaviors that can materially improve physical health. Our guest is Robb Wolf, a former research biochemist who ended up playing founding roles in the creation of both the "paleo diet" and CrossFit training regimen.

Robb's principal warning is that the modern mainstream lifestyle has drifted concerningly far from the one our physiology evolved for. On average, we are too sedentary. Our diet is much too full of foods that we aren't designed to eat. The combination of these two factors is literally killing us. » Read more
