Last year, my sons and I watched the first season TV series called "The Chosen." It's basically the story of Jesus and his "chosen" disciples told in a very, very compelling manner. While speaking with a friend about "The Chosen," he commented to me that he knew the creator of the project, and the guy actually happened to be into fitness, recovery,…
 
Patrick and Laurie Gentempo are dear friends of mine, superstar parents, world-changers, philosophers, entrepreneurs and a featured couple in my upcoming Boundless Parenting book.

Plant medicine, psychedelics, Christianity, spirituality. For the past year, I've been engrossed in how those topics fit together, if and how I want to incorporate those practices and concepts into my life, and what I want to share with you if you're also looking to sort through things yourself. What has been particularly helpful in this process of…
 
You probably already know that I've become increasingly disillusioned with the use of plant medicines. A key book I read that significantly informed my decisions on this topic was titled Pharmakia: The Biblical View of Drug Use, by Robert Orem. This is a book that I often mention these days when I'm discussing plant medicines (and in my opinion, if…
 
I recently got into the sport of pickleball. Coming from a competitive tennis background, I wasn't quite sure I was going to love it, especially since my only experience with pickleball until about four months ago was that it is (take no offense) a gentler "old person's" version of tennis. Holy cow, was I wrong. In the past several weeks, I've pick…
 
I've had plenty of crazy biohacking experiences… …and what I did recently with my friend Dr. Jeremy Stich is at the top of the crazy list.

An outside…
 
I feel fortunate to be invited to many, many events in the health and wellness industry... ...but honestly, lately, I haven't felt all that motivated to go to most of them.

I don't normally get worried or overthink when I'm about to interview a podcast guest. After all, I've been doing the show for a while now. But I have to admit, before my talk with fitness and nutrition (and now finance) master Larry North, a 35-year talk radio veteran, I was a *little* nervous. I met my new friend Larry at a private event in Dalla…

If I asked you to make a list of foods that you predict would spike your blood sugar, what would be on your list? Coca-Cola? Twinkies? Frappuccinos? Probably not steak and green beans, right? Well, as it turns out, steak and green beans spike my blood sugar. I wouldn't have predicted that, either, before I started wearing a continuous glucose monit…

Throughout my career, I've been known as a health and fitness icon. I have to admit that I sometimes find this kind of silly. It's not that I don't think that taking care of my body is important. Far from it. My physical health remains a top priority, and this will probably be the case until the day I die. However, my days as a bodybuilder, Ironman…
