READERS SUMMARY: 1. WHAT BOOKS AM I READING NOW AND WHY? 2. WHY AM I WRITING BOOK REVIEWS IN A BLOG? 3. I THINK SOME PEOPLE HAVE IDEAS WE ALL NEED TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD? 4. I RARELY DO BOOK REVIEWS UNLESS THE BOOKS ARE WORTH IT, THESE TWO ARE. It’s time to begin packing for Jimmy Moore’s low carb cruise so I wanted to launch a post on some of the books I have been reading and spot light two of them that I think are really good reads. I have shared them with my members and my patients and now I want to share my thoughts with my blog readers. How to make your ‘I cans” always succeed your “I can’ts” First up, is Dean Dwyer’s first book called “Make Shift Happen” I met Dean for the first time at Paleo fx and we happened to be a on a panel together and his responses to audience questions really caught me be surprise. He was one of the most amazing breathes of fresh air in Austin I met. We spoke and he told me he wrote a book and I told him I’d love to readContinue Reading
TEDxNashville 2012–Brain surgery without a scalpel: Nashville neurosurgeon Dr. Jack Kruse’s third experiment revealed Nashville, Tenn.–In June of 2011, Dr. Jack Kruse began blogging about his findings as a neurosurgeon and formerly-obese American. After tearing the meniscus in his knee, he wasn’t satisfied with the prognosis from conventional medicine about his obese condition, experiencing the frustration of a debilitated patient firsthand. Determined to find a path back to health, he read over 5,000 articles in 18 months and set up three ground-breaking “thought experiments” to explore key neurological pathways affecting optimal health and longevity. Two were validated first using himself as the experimental subject, when he subsequently lost 77 lbs in three months and 133 lbs in a year, forever changing the way he treated his patients. Dr. Kruse’s first experiment was the now-popular Leptin Rx Reset, a step-by-step process which leverages circadian biology to reset leptin sensitivity, the key to metabolism, optimal health and longevity. Within three months of the blog’s release, www.JackKruse.com was getting over 10,000 unique visitors a month and a thread was started on a popular forum about his Leptin Rx Reset that to date, has received over a million visitors and 21,000 comments. In FebruaryContinue Reading
READERS SUMMARY: 1. WHAT HAPPENED? 2. WHO ROCKED YOUR WORLD? 3. DID I MEET ANY STARFISH? 4. ARE WE HEADED FOR A TRAIN WRECK OR ARE WE BUILDING A DREAM? 5. DID PaleoFX RAISE THE BAR FOR THIS GRASS ROOTS MOVEMENT OF PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT? I am back and very tired yet extremely energized by what went down in Austin. I wrote this on the plane ride home. I met some paleo luminaries for the first time, and I met a lot of people who were just lit on fire by this conference. PaleoFX was billed as where theory meets the practice of Paleo world. There is little doubt that the PaleoFX organizing team met their goal and fulfilled their mission statement. This event was launched in 150 days and to be there and see how professionally things were run was just jaw dropping for me. I honestly had no idea what to expect after AHS inaugural event last year at UCLA. My first day down in Austin was hectic. My flight was a bit late and the navigation in my rental car took me an hour away from the University of Texas Spark Center. I was due to speak atContinue Reading
READERS SUMMARY: 1. For those of you not going to PaleoFX here are my thoughts leading into the conference. I want to share them with you tonight. 2. Most of what follows were my prepared words for the opening remarks tomorrow…I decided to scrap them tonight. 3. I decided to make it raw and personal instead… 4. Transformation requires you to dig deep and reach for the truth inside of you. So that is what I am going to do tomorrow. WHAT IS PaleoFX to me? How do we lead a transformation in our society? How does the theory we espouse become the practice we seek? The ideas we espouse must become the ideas we preach collectively to show the world our vision of reality. The real key is that people must learn that finding their optimal self is just as simple as reactivating an epigenetic program that is wired into our owner’s manual. It has become my job to teach people this…and mental visions of those transformations make my job easier. Where do you start a new movement that begins with personal change? There are many theories on how to begin this, but how do we lead the mediocreContinue Reading
So what is the Paleo Summit to me? For me, it is where unconventional thoughts lead to stunning results! Come and listen to what we put together for free! Sean Croxton, of Underground Wellness, called upon me to talk about some stunning results. When Sean and I spoke, I was putting the finishing touches on a pretty epic bio hack to really address this with a real world N-1. Many of the gurus and experts will cite papers and research. Yet, I decided to use my primal instinct to bridge the gap to answer the question for myself. After 35 years of thinking and reading, I think I might have stumbled upon the answer to why the Paleo diet is the only adaptation a human may need to attain the road to Optimal! In 2012, I will be unleashing the most counterintuitive theories that the paleo-sphere has ever thought of. I will show you how one factor in our evolutionary history may just hold the key to what precisely is optimal is for us all. The one fact might predetermine precisely what we should be eating, instead of what we can eat. Many paleo forums are filled with macronutrient options that we haveContinue Reading
READERS SUMMARY: 1. Are you interested in an ancestral/primal/paleo insurance company? 2. Would you like to help gives us input in what you want and what you would like to see in this plan? 3. Where do I leave my comments on this topic for the 2012 AHS? 4. Can other primal/paleo/ancestral bloggers, followers, enthusiasts make this go viral to benefit all of us? 5. Why do we want to do this for our community? Many of you know that out of the AHS of 2011 many good thing occurred. The meeting really galvanized the community and now it is time to think about how to make this community leverage its power. Turn the kinetic energy of what was 2011 AHS to the potential energy of 2012. This was really brought home by Brent Pottenger recent post that I hope you all read. Please read the link to his post for you to read. Brent was one of the founders of the genesis of what eventually became AHS 2011. He told me recently that he had no idea where his 2009 idea would end up. Well, we just saw the effect of 2011 AHS in our community with all theContinue Reading
READERS SUMMARY: 1. Why you need to get outside of your box and go to a conference you just don’t have time for! 2. Why people you meet can make you more healthy 3. My big regrets……..? 4. What I heard and my interpretation of it? I left the Ancestral Health Symposium about an hour ago and my mind was abuzz with many thoughts and I was quite excited by what I heard these last few days. What was more inspiring to me was some of the people I met. Some were people I had an “ambient awareness” from their internet persona and others were completely new to me who made an indelible impact. Others came up to me to introduce themselves and just talk, and they made me a better person for sharing some ideas with me. I was so inspired, that as I drove back to the hotel I had to call my wife to tell her about the talks that just blew me away. I know many of the “chronologically younger” paleo netizens are out partying in West Hollywood tonight, but I have to sleep to protect my telomeres! And yes my telomeres are now at 29Continue Reading
