Today on the show, we welcome Chris Kresser. Chris is a globally recognized leader in the fields of ancestral health, Paleo nutrition, and functional and integrative medicine. He is the author of the New York Times best seller, The Paleo Cure and has just released his brand-new book titled, Unconventional Medicine. More and more people around the world are starting to recognize that the problems we are facing in the current healthcare system are not ones that someone else can fix. Recent statistics suggests that we are going to have a shortage of over 50,000 primary care providers by the year 2025. One in two American's now have chronic disease, 30% of kids now have a chronic disease, and the average amount of time that a patient gets to speak before they're interrupted by the doctor is just twelve seconds! These are just some of the alarming statistics released in Chris’s book, which address the current state of conventional medicine in America today. So what can we do about it? In this episode, we discuss the role of functional medicine and how the move toward this approach is almost inevitable. Chris explains how we can start to implement functional medicine into our lives today and start addressing the root causes of our problems, rather than masking the symptoms. This is an insightful episode for those in a medical field, health activists, and anybody looking for a solution to their personal, long-term health.

If you haven’t already heard of her, you are in for a real treat today! Diane has an incredible story. She started a career building tech companies and was a millionaire by age 30.

Today on the show, we welcome Bill Schutt. I hope that you already ate, because today, we are talking about a topic pretty unlike anything we have talked about before on the podcast: Cannibalism. Bill is a zoologist and bestselling author who recently wrote a book titled Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History where he talks about cannibalism across all species, including humans. This isn’t a sensationalist book, but rather a sociological, cultural and anthropological look at the reasons why cannibalism occurs in nature. Bill covers topics such as cannibalism among ancestral humans and Neanderthals, as well as the diseases related to forced cannibalism. When it comes to cannibalism, Bill uses the term “Culture is King” and how that can explain why some cultures consider eating their dead to be a more practical, reasonabl,e and respectful practice than, say, burying them. Cannibalism is something that has fascinated humans for centuries, and Bill is all about de-mystifying it, reiterating that it is all about the lens through which you look at certain behaviors. So put down your fork and have a listen to this fascinating talk that will give you loads of great conversation pieces for your next dinner party. Bon a petit!

Today’s guest is Jason Thomas, athlete, explorer and founder of Pili Hunters. Ever heard of a pili nut? Well, just a few years back, Jason basically introduced the incredible pili nut to north America. On a trip to the Philippines, Jason discovered this super nut — a richer, fattier, low-carb nut, packed with nutrients.

From growing up in Alaska, to boxing in Las Vegas, to leading mountaineering treks around the world, kite-surfing, and doing cross fit — Jason is one of those people who has pretty much “done it all.” In this episode, Jason shares how a serious stint with rhabdo led to a year-long recovery process and, ultimately, to the pili nut! We’ll also learn all about the health benefits and harvesting of the pili nut and why Jason decided to do business the “old-fashioned” way.

Today on the show, we welcome Frankie and Theo, founders of Kimera Koffee. Nootropics could possibly be one of the hottest topics these days. Pills, drinks, and supplements infused with natural nootropics and adaptogens that are meant to improve your cognitive performance, assist in memory retention and mood and generally make you feel like a better and more productive human being. One of the more creative companies that are doing this a little differently is Kimera Koffee, a brand that infuses their coffee with amino acids and natural extracts like Taurine, Allithiamine and L Glutamine for energy, focus, and concentration. In this episode we find out how Kimera Koffee do things differently. In terms of their business model, how they harvest their beans, their very unique approach to social media and how they choose their brilliant brand ambassadors. In addition to the whole coffee thing, we also digress to topics such as boybands and jiu-jitsu. Even if you aren’t into nootropics, and even if you’re not a coffee person, this is an insightful and entertaining interview with two successful business owners who are staying true to themselves and doing things their own way.

On today’s episode, we welcome Darryl Edwards, who may arguably be one of the most fun paleo authorities around. Darryl is a speaker, a coach, nutritionist, an author, and the founder of Fitness Explorer Training. You might recognize his Primal Play methodology or perhaps you’ve just seen him piggybacking his friends around at different events. He’s been published in magazines like ELLE, Men’s Fitness, Women’s Health, and he even has a feature in an international documentary called We Love Paleo. Darryl was also recently interviewed for a new book called Born Primal and his goal with Primal Play is to make movement and activity fun and effective. Making individuals healthier and fitter in a way that’s enjoyable, rather than tedious. Although it certainly can be, play doesn’t have to mean silly or superfluous. As you’ll learn in this episode, play can also be an intense workout and help you become faster, fitter and stronger. Darryl’s method is not about rules and incremental improvements, but about moving your body creatively and using your environment to do so. Today, Darryl gives us some tips on how we can start running like a bear, chasing cars, climbing trees and putting play into practice. He also talks about the state of paleo both in London and the U.S and the future of the movement. Take a listen!

Today on the show we welcome Caitlin Allday, the Founder of Paleo University as well as the Director of Content and the organization’s nutrition coach. She is a personal nutrition coaching consultant, she studied nutrition at NYU, completed her dietetic internship at Texas ANM, and she’s also registered dietician and nutritionist. On top of that, she’s also kind of like the Indiana Jones of Paleo! Caitlin has been playing around with the paleo model of evolutionary nutrition in her own life for about a decade, and after working with many clients, she soon realized that the main issue for many people is not the idea of what to eat, it’s knowing how to cook healthy, real food in a way that’s simple, convenient, efficient, and sustainable. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re trying to break long standing habits and form new ones. So Caitlin decided to create this resource, Paleo University, where all the recipes, tutorials, meal plans, grocery lists, and kitchen skill info, is in one place. Making it easier for you to join and contribute to a more accessible community surrounding healthy habits. Today, we talk with Caitlin about her fascinating nutrition journey and what Paleo University offers, and maybe get some tips on how to be healthier, up your kitchen skills, and be more proactive in the kitchen. Take a listen!

Today’s guest is Dr. Norman Robillard, a microbiologist and a researcher who spent 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry before founding the Digestive Health Institute. Dr. Norm’s goal is to develop holistic treatments for digestive illnesses based on understanding the underlying cause of the disease, rather than just dealing with the symptoms. He has created the Fast Tract Diet, which he’s going to talk about in our interview, and he also has two books out — The Fast Tract Digestion and The Fast Tract Heartburn. Today, we discuss the complexities of gut health; touching on some interesting points around symptoms, treatment, carbs, enzyme supplements, fasting, fats, and why you should chew your food. We also get into some of the not-so-pretty stuff like SIBO, mucus membranes, fecal bacteria, and gas. But it’s all for a good cause and makes for an insightful conversation to help us understand our gut and how we can heal it. Take a listen!

Today we welcome Brian Mackenzie, co-author, together with Dr. Andy Galpin, of a book called Unplugged: Evolve from Technology to Upgrade Your Fitness, Performance, & Consciousness. Brian is a world-renowned strength and conditioning expert and has worked with many high level winning CrossFit games athletes and Olympians. He cofounded XPT Life, a wellness conditioning and recovery program, with Laird Hamilton and Gabby Reese. For a while now, the idea of being “plugged in” has been considered pretty much exclusively positive, but it’s safe to say that our addiction to technology today has spiraled out of control, keeping many of us from living our own lives or listening to what our body is telling us. Brian’s book, Unplugged, provides a framework for using technology to meet your specific health and performance goals in a more mindful way, while also reconnecting with your own instincts and the world around you. In this episode, we learn more about Brian’s research into breathing and discuss technology addiction, diving with sharks, why technology is never going to replace your soul, and how to balance it back into our lives. Take a listen!

  • Who is Brian’s book Unplugged communicating to?

On today’s show we welcome Serenity Heegel and her partner Joe Carr, founders of Serenity Kids, a company that makes portable baby food that’s gluten free, Paleo, and non-GMO in flavors like organic beef with Kale and sweet potato, chicken with peas and carrots, and even uncured bacon with kale and butternut squash. They started Serenity Kids because they wanted only the best for their future baby. They partnered with small, American family farmers to create a delicious baby food that contains meat from animals raised humanely, on pasture, without hormones, antibiotics, or GMO feed. Pastured meats benefit the animal, the family farmers, and the planet. 

The best part is that they're better for your baby because they have a much higher Omega-3s and CLAs than grain-fed meats. At Serenity Kids they blend these meats with high-quality organic vegetables to create balanced, nourishing meals. In this episode Joe and Serenity talk about how they found Paleo, why their product is unique in the baby food market, and they give some tips on the ideal baby food that I certainly didn’t know. 

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • How Serenity and Joe’s childhood health issues led them to starting Serenity Kids.
  • Identifying the gap in the market for paleo-friendly baby food.
  • Products launching on Serenity Kids.
  • Their relationship with the farms supplying the ingredients.
  • Breakdown of fats, proteins, carbs and calories in the foods.
  • Deciding what's nutritiously right to feed your baby.
  • The target audience Serenity Kids focuses on.
  • Challenging the cost of baby food.
  • Shelf life stable baby food.
  • Baby food for adults. Can we eat it?
  • We’re discussing future plans for Serenity Kids. 
  • Building good healthy habits at a young age.
  • And much more!

In today’s episode we welcome scientist and author Dr. Anthony G. Jay. Anthony is the President and CEO of AJ Consulting Company and recently wrote an eye opening book titled Estrogeneration: How Estrogenics are Making You Fat, Sick and Infertile. His book explains what estrogenics are, just how pervasive they are in our world today, and, despite the mounting evidence of their many negative effects, just how little is being done to minimize the use of unnecessary and often toxic ingredients in our food, skin care, plastics, and other daily products. 

Often scientific research can be inaccessible to the average human brain, but Anthony writes in such a personable and digestable way. Anthony exposes what is in our coffee, sunscreen, our salmon and critiques the shady politics of scientific research. Although the information in his book might absolutely horrify you, thankfully he offers plenty of actionable steps for us to easily minimize the amount of estrogenics in our daily life. If you are experiencing any type of health issue, suffering from depression, or even infertility — we would highly recommend you take a listen to this illuminating interview!

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • How Anthony combats the inaccessibility of science in Estrogenics.
  • What is an estrogenic?
  • The health issues tied to having too much estrogen.
  • If it’s natural can it be bad?
  • The link between lavender and man boobs.
  • Why you should avoid cosmetic parabens. 
  • Fat cell production and the estrogenic paradox.
  • Fat for your brain!
  • Money, politics and atrazine.
  • Mold, sunscreen, red dye and “fragrances”: How to avoid harmful estrogenics.
  • Why you might just be drinking birth control.
  • Phthalate is everywhere: Here’s how to void it.
  • The dirty secrets of science.
  • And much more!

PMR Episode 171 Feature Image


On today’s episode, we’re talking all about gut health. This is an incredibly multi-faceted topic as there are many layers when dealing with gut health, gut treatment, and preventative measures. From food, to exercise, to lifestyle factors, to different auto immune issues — gut health appears to be an endless topic of discovery, with rarely a clear cut diagnosis or treatment. So today, I’m talking with Dr. Michael Ruscio. Michael is a clinical researcher and author who practices functional medicine with the focus on digestive conditions. Dr. Ruscio has his own podcast and blog where he talks about gut issues, and he’s a frequent speaker on this complex topic. Here, I ask him all the questions that us, non-doctors, have about gut health. Like how to determine what your issues actually are, what they stem from, how to fix them, and even the order in which to take these steps. If you’re struggling with any gut health or digestive issues, or you know someone who is, this is an episode that you probably won’t want to miss!

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • What is a microbiome?
  • How to tell if you are having gut health issues.
  • Why food is not enough!
  • Where do you start if you’re having gut health issues?
  • Tele-medicine and Skype consults.
  • Finding the right doctor.
  • Probiotic and prebiotic pills.
  • How does paleo tie in to a healthy gut?
  • The low FOD map diet.
  • The effects of caffeine on gut health. 
  • Fermented foods and the role they play.
  • And much more!

You’d be surprised how often people bring their biases into a topic and then it becomes what looks like science.” — @DrRuscio [0:30:27.9]

If you can learn to just listen to your own body, you will find your own truth.” — @DrRuscio [0:54:19.5]

On today’s episode we have Dave Asprey, an entrepreneur, businessman, author and probably one of the most prominent bio hackers in the world. Not only is Dave the creator of Bullet Proof Coffee and the Bulletproof Diet, he’s also the man who’s gunning to live to 180 by hacking every element of his health. While some of Dave’s tactics are oh so Paleo – like eating quality whole foods and sleeping in a cool, dark room - some of his methods are about as opposite from traditional Paleo as you can imagine. Like taking over a 150 pills, vitamins and supplements a day! Whether you’re into bio-hacking or not, one thing we can say is that Dave Asprey is certainly putting in the time, money and effort into testing these methods for us.

In this episode we discuss everything from diets and sleep, to America’s moldy coffee and bio hacking in the womb, to what happens when Dave’s kids go through the McDonalds Drive through.

  • The problems with eating the way caveman ate in today's word.

  • The importance of getting more high-quality sleep.
  • Cold showers and dark room slumbers.

PMR Episode 170 Feature Image


Just like knowing someone’s history can help you understand them better, understanding your DNA can help you better understand your own body’s needs. On today’s show we talk with former Olympic athlete, Craig Pickering. Craig is a former Olympic sprinter and competed in four world championships and the 2008 Olympic Games before switching to bobsleigh and qualifying for the 2014 winter Olympics, making Craig only the eighth British person to be selected for both a summer and winter Olympic Games. There’s no doubt he’s got one heck of a good story and a ton of great insights on human performance to share.

Today Craig heads up another one of his passions called DNAFit. DNAFit uses genetic information to let us know what types of training, food and supplementation will help us maximize our health and athletic performance. We had a chance to take this test and learn all kinds of interesting things and in today’s interview, we get to use our results as an example for how to use this service.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • How Craig became a professional athlete.
  • Why Craig moved from the 100m Olympic sprint to British Bobsleigh.
  • What a bobsleigh is really like, and Craig’s experience.
  • Craig’s injury setback and how he got involved in DNAFit.
  • What DNAFit is and how DNAFit testing works?
  • How DNAFit helped Craig himself.
  • What we discovered using the DNAFit test.
  • Endurance versus power training. Which is best for me?
  • How to navigate your individual injury-risk level.
  • The most common diet recommendations that are given out through DNAFit.
  • What the caffeine gene is.
  • How to reduce trial and error by understanding your DNA.
  • How to quit fickle dieting plans for good!
  • Any much more!

“I had kind of a choice; either get a real job or find somebody else to pay me to do sports.” — @craig100m [0:05:04.1]

“Being in an actual bobsleigh was horrific.” — @craig100m [0:07:15.1]

“If we know what DNA we’ve got, we can change the training and diet we do to best suit our genetic makeup.” — @craig100m [0:10:53.1]

“The biggest issues around DNA testing is that people aren’t aware that you can do it and how valid it is.” — @craig100m [0:15:11.3]

“There is no good news or bad news, just actionable news.” — @craig100m [0:27:02.3]

“Having a better idea, at the start, of what works for you could be massively important.” — @craig100m [0:37:01.4]

On today’s show we're talking to the founder of The New Primal, Jason Burke. Jason started making his own jerky because he needed a healthy option and it went well, and the rest is history. Now he’s offering that healthy option to all of us, at more than 6,000 locations around the US as well as online. This company makes grass fed, grass finished beef jerky as well as marinades, meat sticks and even cute, perfectly proportioned snack mates for the kiddie’s lunch boxes.

This company has helped change the public’s perception of jerky from an aggressive salted and sugared trucker treat that you pick up at the gas station to a healthful, nourishing snack that really anyone can enjoy. In today’s episode, we talk about his product, the growing pains of running a company as well as having a life and a lot more.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Jason's background and how he came to be where he is now.
  • How he continues to differentiate and set himself apart from new jerky companies.
  • What Jason’s jerky recipe consists of.
  • The kid specific products that are available at The New Primal.
  • How Jason has entered new market segments with his healthy jerky.
  • How the packaging is inclusive and not classic meathead kind style.
  • What product is the most popular product from The New Primal.
  • How Jason found and developed a relationship with his suppliers.
  • How the local market is starting to make steps into the direction of grass fed cows.
  • The challenges of sourcing poultry.
  • How he and his family maintain a healthy lifestyle and find a balance.
  • The new products that The New Primal has and what to look out for..
  • And much more!

“Paleo or not, we’re among the cleanest that you’ll get and we don’t skimp on animal welfare practices at all.” — @thenewprimal [0:08:38.1]

This week we’re talking with Laird Hamilton and Gabriel Reece, two of the most high functioning, successful and driven people we have ever met, about their lives together and how they work to establish a lifestyle, routine and community centered around happiness and health. They’re professional athletes. Laird is basically the king of surfing and Gabby is a former professional volleyball player, they’re both business owners and between them, they have their own documentaries, podcasts, books and more.

They run and host a fitness, wellness and recovery program called XPT where they travel to different locales and spend three days eating, surfing, meditating and working out with other likeminded folks. We had a chance to attend one of these experiences last summer—it was an absolutely singular inspiring experience that still informs the choices we make every day. In this interview, we talk about XPT, we talk about their super food company, a new documentary about Laird’s life and we talk about the way they eat, work out and their relationship with each other and with other people in their community.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • What exploration and performance training (XPT) is all about.
  • How Laird and Gabby find the balance between establishing a healthy routine while being able to adapt.
  • How life may seem effortless but it takes a lot of effort.
  • How values, priorities, meditation and having a hovering perspective helps Laird and Gabby maintain perspective on life.
  • Why it’s important to be appreciative in life.
  • How they incorporate family into XPT.
  • Future plans for XPT to evolve and grow.
  • Gabby’s Podcast, The Truth Barrel.
  • Their public life and the sometimes negative publicity that comes with that.
  • What is meant by one partner taking the masculine and the other the feminine.
  • Superfoods and products which are based on whole foods.
  • The Peruvian coffee bean that Laird also offers.
  • Laird and Gabby’s healthy eating habits.
  • The importance of not to putting a lot of stress around your diet.
  • Gabby’s NBC show called Strong.
  • How some people can be born with drive for life.
  • And much more!

Crowd Cow is a pretty cool new company that is changing the way we purchase our meat by providing high quality beef in a convenient new format. They use an online system where you can put money on a cow, basically becoming a “steak-holder”, get it? You can purchase as much as you want without having to split a cow with someone else and then find a place to store it all. The grass fed beef comes from small, sustainable, and independent ranches and we can tell you personally that the quality is awesome. It’s delivered frozen straight to your door, in individual sous vide-ready vacuum packs.

The whole process makes getting the best quality beef, the exact cuts you want and the quantities, easier than ever. So we figured this company is something that Paleo listeners or anyone who appreciates a good steak would be interested in. Today we’re talking to Joe Heitzeberg, the CEO of the company, about how he came to the idea and we learn a bit more about the process, about the beef, and about some of the interesting challenges involved in running a company like this.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Crowd Cow and how the company works.
  • The niche market that Crowd Cow serves.
  • The types of beef cuts they provide and where they are sourced from.
  • The different seasonalities of beef cuts that are available.
  • The challenges that they encountered as they brought Crowd Cow to the public.
  • The importance of getting in front of the right customer base.
  • The relationship that Crowd Cow builds with its ranchers.
  • How the team at Crowd Cow built an online community to offer information and resources.

“Any cow standing in a field could be called grass fed.” — @jheitzeb @crowdcowusa [0:14:19.1]
