There is a health crisis going on right now in the US.

Metabolic diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease are at an all-time high.

Our collective health has been steadily declining over the last 40 years and it doesn’t appear to be reversing anytime soon.

And if you think your healthcare system, the food industry, or the government are here to help you, you are sadly mistaken.

If you want to avoid being another sta...

If you’re a runner and you are not engaging in some form of consistent, intentional strength training, you are leaving a LOT on the table.

This is another episode I’m doing in my “Back to Basics” series where I’m talking about the basics of good health, improved fitness, and becoming your most badass self.

Today is all about the importance of strength training for runners.

To be honest, most runners I talk to are not doing any form...

What do you think of when you hear the word “discipline”?

Does it conjure up images of “getting in trouble” or controlling behavior by means of punishment?

For a lot of people, the word has a very negative connotation, and they want nothing to do with discipline in their life.

But discipline is not always a bad thing. In fact, having more discipline in your life might actually be one of the best things you can do for your overall h...

Today, I’ve got another episode in my Back to Basics series. This time it’s all about why runners get fat.

I’ve talked about this topic a lot here on the podcast, but I want to go over it again today because understanding why you get fat – even if you’re a runner – is going to help you make the changes you need to make to reverse it.

Runners are not immune to gaining weight and getting fat. In fact, gaining a lot of weight as a run...

I’ve been thinking about this podcast topic for a while now and finally just felt ready to share my thoughts with you.

This is one of those “tough love” episodes, so fair warning in advance.

If you’re the kind of person who just wants to keep doing whatever you’re doing from a sports nutrition perspective, then this episode might not be for you.

But if you’re someone interested in making changes to the way you fuel your body for ov...

In my coaching practice, I hear this phrase a lot, “I feel like I’m spiraling out of control.”

Spiraling out of control can feel terrible and typically leads to out-of-control behavior like eating ALL the Oreos in the house or an entire large pizza by yourself. (I know this from personal experience, btw…)

But what does it really mean to be “spiraling out of control?” Are you actually out of control or does it just feel like it?

Most people don’t realize that their thoughts are responsible for every result they are getting or not getting in their lives.

They blame other people and outside circumstances for their inability to stay on their food plan or their lack of motivation.

They have all kinds of stories and reasons why things just won’t ever work out for them.

But I would argue that this is a pretty crappy way to go through your life.

Instead of being ...

I’ve taught a lot of nutrition and mindset concepts over the last two and a half years of doing this podcast, and some of these topics are worth a revisit.

Either because I’ve discovered new information about the topic and want to share that with you, or because it’s just so important that it’s worth another look.

So over the next several weeks, I’m going to be sprinkling in some of these “Back to Basics” episodes to share new and ...

There are a lot of misconceptions out there about what coaching is and what it isn’t.

Some people think coaching is just someone screaming at you like a drill sergeant in boot camp.

Others think coaching is having a cheerleader by your side telling you, “Great job!” all the time.

While both of these can be positive aspects of coaching, there’s a lot more to consider if you’re seriously looking for someone to help you reach your wei...

Today I have a bit of a different episode for you.

I’m going to be asking you a lot of questions about your diet, your weight, your current health, your running performance, and a few other things.

The reason for this is that I want you to consider how your current diet might be affecting you.

Most people don’t pay much attention to their diet unless they suddenly find themselves overweight or their doctor wants to put them on some...

If you want to make big changes in your life, then a lot of things in your life are going to have to change. The problem is that most people do not like to change things! Most people have big lofty goals but want to change as little as possible. So today, I’m going to offer up an alternative way of doing things, something I call “total immersion.”

When it comes to making lasting habit change, there are two main areas of “work” that you have to address. There’s the outer work, which is what to do and how to do it, and then there’s the inner work, which is all about making profound shifts in your mindset. In this episode, I’m taking a deep dive into what it means to be winning the inner game and why it’s a critical component of becoming a leaner, stronger runner.

I recently sat down with Melanie Millaway and we had a candid conversation about her experience of changing her diet and getting fat-adapted. But the real change didn’t happen on the outside. If you’re unhappy with the way you look and feel and you want more for yourself, then you have to do the inner work. This is the work that Melanie did and in this episode of the podcast, she shares how she’s absolutely transformed her life fro...

If you’re like most people (me included), your beliefs about what you can or can’t accomplish are based on whatever you’ve been able to do up to this point in your life. This is an incredibly limiting mindset and it’s keeping you stuck where you are. Today on the podcast, I’ll show you how powerful it is to start thinking beyond your current self so you can break out of the cycle of your past and become that badass future self.
