Here’s why I don’t drink juice…

There’s a lot of hype about the health benefits of cold-pressed juices. Pretty much every health store is selling them but the truth is, they’re not really that good for you. They’re also expensive, environmentally wasteful, and can actually be counter to a healthy lifestyle.

So the next time you consider forking out $10-$15 for a cold-pressed juice at Whole Foods – try and remember the following: Read More

Current supplements I’m taking (Oct 6, 2015).

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 4.13.00 PM

I get asked a lot via email and Facebook what supplements I take so here’s a list of what I have as my “active” supplements on my office desk that I build my daily nutrition plan around. I end up taking about 60-70% of these on a daily basis. Contact me if you want any more information. Dosages are normally as directed – but some I take higher dosages (like CordycepsMagnesium L-Threonate, and Ashwagandha which I am experimenting with a lot at the moment). I’ll add to the list as things change. About 60% of these are my own research and education. The rest are from deficiencies identified with genetic testing with 23andMe (when they were legally allowed to give more information than they do now), as well as through the massive blood panels and profiling I had done with Chris Talley, who looks after Red Bull’s athletes and is a former nutritionist for NASA. Chris’s company, Precision Food Works runs probably one of the most extensive blood and urine tests on the planet. Links are to the actual products: Read More

5 health reasons I stopped wearing aftershave

One of the scariest things I uncovered when researching my book was just how many toxins we’re exposed to on a daily basis. We drink out of plastic bottles that contain BPA, a known carcinogen that also sucks away our testosterone and makes us infertile. We eat foods laced with hormones that have the potential to give us prostate cancer. 90% of the soy in the USA is genetically modified, engineered to be resistant to massively toxic fertilizers and other poisons like Roundup – the poster-child for Monsanto’s billions. We suck the fumes from the freeways and swim in oceans that are polluted by the run-off from factories and industrial waste. Toxic chemicals and pollutants are all around us – but one fact I was surprised to uncover was just how many toxins and chemicals are in our fragranced personal care products – the stuff we put on our face and lather our bodies with every day.

How to eliminate the “Dad Bod”

“Dad bods” are the new fitness standard for a growing bunch of men across the United States. What’s a dad bod? Well, think Seth Rogan, Jason Segel or Leonardo DiCaprio on summer vacation and between movie roles: overweight, out of shape, and happy and content with his pasta, rosé and Victoria’s Secret models. Basically, pudgy, cuddly, doughy, don’t really care about how you look any more: That’s the dad bod. And some women are supporting the new trend, if you believe the studies — apparently because having a man who has a dad bod as a partner takes the pressure off them to stay in shape. Another rationale is that if the man is not as focused on his own body, he’ll spend more time with and take better care of his partner and family — or so the theory goes. Read More

What’s “skinny fat”?


If you are doing prolonged cardio exercise several times a week, or perhaps even more often, chances are you’re not getting the physical results nor the health benefits you think you are. You want to look good and be healthy, right? Although all that jogging, swimming, running, and cycling may make you accomplished at all of these activities, it also can put you into a category known as skinny fat. Read More
