    Stepping Way Out Of The Comfort Zone

    Adam takes a big risk for charity

    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.

    Adam's story

    Our longtime readers likely remember Chris' recount of his health transformation back in 2011, in which he trimmed off over 30 pounds through a process of prudent changes to his lifestyle.

    I've gone through a similar transformation as Chris and have been meaning to share that story for a while now.

    Chris Kresser: Functional Health

    More options for living better & longer
    by Adam Taggart

    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.

    Mark Sisson: Why Nutrition Is The Key To Health

    Our diet determines which genes get activated
    by Adam Taggart

    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.

    Robb Wolf: The Science Behind Healthy Diet & Fitness

    And how good health takes less time than we think
    by Adam Taggart

    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.

    Doing the Next Thing

    Steady steps is what it takes to build resilience

    The whole reason we spend our time looking at where the world is going is so that we can position ourselves to have as prosperous, joyous, and fulfilled a life as we can, while leaving behind a better world for those who will follow us.

    Today I can say with complete sincerity that I am a better, more fulfilled, happier, and healthier person than I was ten years ago.

    Mark Sisson: The Importance, and Achievability, of Being Fit

    An even bigger priority than fiscal fitness

    For years, Mark Sisson competed as a professional runner and triathlete. He trained hard and conventionally, but realized that the "better" shape he was in, the more problems his body had: joint pain, digestive issues, tendonitis, etc.

    Eventually he retired from competition and set out to find a way to remain fit, but healthy. His reseach led him to focus on the evolutionary path the human body has followed; How our physiology is designed and how our genes are wired.
