The Quest for Better Health

 

Steve Patterson interviews me about my quest for better health.  We discuss my story, going from a 38 inch waste and extra large size tee-shirts to a 32 inch waste and small tee-shirts, all while eating as much food as I want, and having more energy!  What is the paleo diet?  Why are grains unhealthy?  What is 80/20, and how does it make sticking with the paleo diet much easier?  How does the vegan diet stack up against the paleo diet?  We discuss all this and more.

 

 

 

For full disclosure’s sake, I misspoke when I said that as of last October (2013) I had been on the paleo diet for 3 years.  October 2013 was actually the 2 year marker for how long I have been paleo.  Sorry about that.

 

 

 

Here is a low commitment option ->  Try Mark Sisson’s 21 Day Challenge:  http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-primal-blueprint-21-day-challenge-infographic/#axzz2rhi4bx79

 

 

 

Here is the podcast with Karen De Coster that started me down the road to the paleo lifestyle:  http://www.lewrockwell.com/podcast/223-government-hates-good-health/

 

 

 

Here is my favorite health podcast.  Underground Wellness is great for gaining exposure to many different concepts and topics on health and nutrition:  http://undergroundwellness.com/radio/

 

 

 

My first, and still my favorite, paleo book:  http://www.primalblueprint.com/product/The_Primal_Blueprint/Books_and_Media

 

 

 

Mark Sisson’s blog also has basically all of the same information that is in the book above, and it's available for free online:  http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/#axzz2rhi4bx79

 

 

 

Here is a great site, complete with a phone app, for tracking the food you eat, how much you exercise, etc:  http://www.fitday.com/

 

 

 

Denise Minger was the woman I mentioned on the show who has done a great deal of work comparing the vegan diet to the paleo diet.  Here is a presentation she did on the China Study:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsf9Tpm2Dgc

 

 

 

Susan Schenck is a woman who use to be a champion for veganism.  She wrote books on how great it was.  And then it stopped working for her, and when I say “stopped working” I’m putting it very nicely!  She now writes books on how the vegan diet is awful, that you may feel great the first few years, but eventually the deficiencies catch up with you in a big way:  http://undergroundwellness.com/podcasts/when-a-vegetarian-diet-doesnt-work/

 

 

 

Choice Conversations is now on Facebook.  Stop in, say hi, discuss the shows, and more!  If you like Choice Conversations then "like" me on facebook, get notifications, and then share the page with your friends:  https://www.facebook.com/ChoiceConversationsPodcast

 

Choice Conversations has an opening for an editor.  Unfortunately my editor had to retire, and I simply do not have the time to do it myself.  Podcasts may be few and far between if I don’t get some help!  It is super easy, I can talk you through how to do it, it just consumes more time than I have available.  If you enjoy the podcast and otherwise receive value from it, editing a few shows for me would be a great way to reciprocate and give value in return.  Message me on facebook for details:   https://www.facebook.com/ChoiceConversationsPodcast

 

Help the Podcast!  I would greatly appreciate it if you went to itunes, wrote a quick review and rated the show.  This is a great way to increase downloads and to help the show grow.  The more downloads, the more easily I can book high profile guests:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/choice-conversations/id315666764

Ringing in the New Year with Glenn Jacobs

 

Professional wrestler Glenn Jacobs, who goes by the ring name of Kane in the WWE, joined me on New Year’s Day 2014 for a great discussion.  Glenn told me about his journey, getting into professional wrestling, and how that impacted the growth of his political and economic views.  We then took a hard look at the Federal Reserve, the NSA, and the TSA.  Was 9/11 not a big deal?  Is the public school system undermining American freedom?  How far is the USA from Soviet-style totalitarianism?  Can the internet save us? 

 

 

 

Listen to how Glenn and I ring in the New Year and “celebrate” the 100th birthday of the Federal Reserve. :)
