There’s a radical shift in thinking happening behind-the-scenes of many elite endurance athletes regarding the optimal nutrition for peak performance. What’s most fascinating about this movement is how many of these athletes are making a 180-degree change in their thinking about diet. For a Los Angeles-based Paleo-inspired Nutrition & Healthy Living Coach and keto-adapted Ironman triathlete and marathon runner named Nell Stephenson from Paleoista.com, the change she has made in the way she eats to fuel her body is like night and day. Nell has been a guest twice previously in Episode 399 and Episode 576 where we discussed her book Paleoista: Gain Energy, Get Lean, and Feel Fabulous With the Diet You Were Born to Eat. But now she’s back today to discuss how shifting to becoming a fat-adapted athlete has helped her win a couple of races and dramatically improve her race times. Listen in as Jimmy and Nell talk about this change that has happened in Nell, how the Paleo landscape has changed so much in the past few years that it’s become confusing, what it was like for her to start training and racing in a fasted/keto-adapted state, how many people are walking around sub-clinically sick and don’t even know it, and her upcoming 2-Day Women’s Workshop coming May 5-6, 2016. If you or someone you know is interested in ketogenic diets for athletic performance, then DON’T MISS this interview.

The swift rise in popularity of the Paleo community has given a platform for more and more opportunities for people promoting this real food-based lifestyle. From books to blogs, podcasts to reality television appearances, the Paleo message is going strong with a huge following of people embracing the principles of this way of living. It’s something that Keith & Michelle Norris from Austin, Texas first tapped into back in 2012 when they cofounded what has become the world’s largest Paleo conference (with over 2500 people in attendance in 2015) called Paleo f(x). The 2016 event is expected to be even larger when it takes place at the Palmer Events Center on May 27-29, 2016. Anybody who’s anybody in the Paleo community will be in attendance at this event and it includes people not just from Paleo, but also from the primal, low-carb, ketogenic, Weston A. Price, and general health communities. Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Keith and Michelle about what is sure to be another record-breaking attendance and historic event!

It’s sad but true that women are often an underserved and even forgotten part of our everyday lives.

She carries degrees in Sociology, Social Sciences, Broadcasting, and is certified in Nutrition and the Culinary Arts. Nikki is on the podcast today to talk about two exciting projects she is sharing in 2016 that will be focused on general health for everyone as well as specific wellness strategies that will empower and encourage women.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nikki discuss the upcoming 2016 Mega Wellness Summit beginning with FREE access to the 2015 event starting this week on March 5, 2016 and the new summit commencing on March 13, 2016, why helping women especially is so critically important to everyone’s health and well-being, her Women’s Wellness Academy designed to be a resource for women who are struggling to get their health in order, and so much MORE!

We all want to optimize and supercharge our brain health naturally and now there is an entire category of lifestyle and supplement protocols dedicated to doing just that. It’s called nootropics and a subject we’ve covered previously on this podcast in Episode 1008, Episode 989, and Episode 949. And today we have Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and Certified Nutritional Therapist Evan Brand from NotJustPaleo.com and the man behind the microphone on the popular iTunes health podcast called Not Just Paleo sharing his knowledge and experience about nootropics. Evan has written a book all about it entitled The Everything Guide To Nootropics: Boost Your Brain Function with Smart Drugs and Memory Supplements and he’s here to unveil his best brain-boosting tips.

Listen in as Jimmy and Evan talk about some of his most memorable podcast guests like Dr. Richard Hansler, how he got interested in mind-altering and brain enhancement, why the term “smart drug” is a bit misleading about nootropics, what the original intention of nootropics was supposed to be, the side effects of taking stronger nootropics, why you can take more natural forms of nootropics and get good results, whether ketones can be a natural nootropic, the reason why our brains aren’t optimized and need to be boosted, the tests he runs on people to determine if they have adrenal fatigue, why it’s a good idea to work with a functional medicine practitioner to get good analysis of their testing, how mainstream medicine has utterly failed on chronic disease management, whether there are basic nootropics everyone should be taking, the work of Paul Stamets on medicinal mushrooms, the positive impact of phosphatidylserine on Alzheimer’s disease, the conflicting studies on nootropics that depends on the patient, the role that dietary fat plays in making nootropics work well, and the positive impact this subject has had on Evan’s life.
