Clearly, Dr. Ca ...…

By age 35, 95-99 percent of your thoughts and actions originate from the habitual programming of the subconscious mind—a combination of memorized behaviors, emotional reactions, beliefs and perceptions that run in the background like an app on your smartphone.

Fatty popcorn boy is me — two years after exiting a really strict ketogenic eating strategy (mostly on account of R&D while writing Keto Reset Diet with Mark Sisson) and embarking upon an experiment to increase overall caloric intake, including by default, carb intake.

As I discussed in the previous breather show, Dr. Lipton asserts that we spend 95-99% in daily life operating from subconscious programming. This show is going to get a little science-y as it’s extremely important to understand just how your thoughts are directing your genetic and cellular function. Each of our cells has extremely thin membrane ...…

There’s no doubt that having healthy, productive morning habits is good for you.

I hit the record button and hit Mia Moore with a surprise question: why are you so chill?

We agree that toda ...…
