[00:01:00] This week I am super excited to welcome Brad Davidson. Now Brad is an author, a performance coach, speaker and presenter and is an expert on the topic of metabolism. Brad wrote his bestselling book "Stark Naked 21-Day Metabolic Reset," which has been the topic of conversation around our office for a while. Now he's a super nice guy. We had a lot of fun in this episode and discussed among many things how so many of us get it wrong when thinking about diet and exercise and how doing less and eating more carbs could lead to better health. Now I guarantee you'll get something out of this interview. I had a blast. Without further ado, let's get into the show.
Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Brad Davidson to the show. Good morning, Brad. How are you?
Hey. I'm doing great. Thank you. So excited to be on this.
[00:02:00] We've just been inundated with emails and requests from our audience over here in Australia, they're talking about "The Stark Naked 21-Day Metabolic Reset" book that seems to be causing a little bit of a stir over here as well. I dug deep and just had a little look what's it's all about, who's this about and realized that you really got a really good story to tell. From your story, you've radically changed the way you do things and now you're helping a whole heap of people. I would love, Brad, if you could perhaps just tell us a little bit about yourself, who you are, what you do and perhaps why you do it just to kick start.
[00:02:30] Yeah. Awesome. First off, I'm a husband, father of three, got my hands full. I'm a speaker now. I travel around the United States, Canada, get international a little bit here and there. Focused on the metabolism. I'm a big fan of energy. That's my thing. I learned early on at 33 that if you lack energy, you lack life. It was interesting because my life, fitness and obsession with extreme fitness and extreme nutrition, I mean just wiped me up. Talk about a curve ball in life. I was obsessed on that. I love to work with people that are burned out, tired, have roadblocks in life. Just kind of lost that zest for life.
[00:03:00] I love to just restart that. I'm a big fan of helping people live a more fulfilled life is the big goal now.
