Hey, this is Guy Lawrence with 180 Nutrition, and welcome to another episode of the Health Sessions, where of course we're cutting through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts, to share the best in latest science and thinking, and empowering everyone that we possibly can to turn their health and lives around. This week, our fantastic guest is Mr. Rich Roll. Now, if you're not familiar with Rich, he is a [sheer guy 00:00:31], full of inspiration, I can assure you.

He became a number one best selling author, I think back in 2012, with his book Finding Ultra. He's got a whole amazing story prior to that as well, of transformation, that we get into, into the podcast today. He's got a hit podcast called the Rich Roll Podcast, which is always seen the top of the charts here in Australia, and he's doing amazing things in the USA with the podcast as well, so we're highly recommending you'll check that out after listening to this, no doubt.

He's well known for doing what was called the Epic 5 challenge. Basically, it's completing five Ironman distance triathlons on five islands of Hawaii in under a week. I think he did that. He said two years prior to that he didn't even ride a bike, so it's a true transformational story. It's amazing what Rich has gone on and achieved. He's become a phenomenal athlete, and a plant-based athlete at well. He's also been featured in, let me think now, CNN, Los Angeles Times, Sunday Magazine, the Huffington Post, Stanford Magazine, Men's Health Living, to name a few. He's done whole retreats as well, all around the world, and he's just doing great things. It was great to actually sit down with Rich for what was it, 45 minutes, an hour today, and pick his brains and discuss all these amazing topics.

We'll get over to that. I just want to read out a iTunes review that came in recently, because I actually thought it was fantastic advice as well. That was by Penny of PB Lifestyles. Penny, I even checked out your website, mate. You're doing fantastic things, traveling around the world, inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle. Well done, mate. Keep it up. It basically says, "Guy and Stu, thanks so much for helping to make this world a better place. I love that you're not like some of the wellness communities are, and I love the variety of guests you've interviewed. I'm trying to take just one actionable item away from each podcast." So are we, Penny, so are we.

"I think if everyone did that, worked on one take away from each episode, then they would help to not only make themselves healthier, but more present individuals, but contribute to a more peaceful world." We believe the same thing, and reviews like that really give us a kick and inspire us to keep searching the globe for the best possible people we can have on this podcast, and share it with everyone, so much appreciated. Guys, if you do get the chance to leave a review, please do. It takes two minutes on iTunes, and helps us spread these podcasts, which of course are free for everyone, across and get us found globally, which is the grand plan, and we're slowly getting there. Any feedback too, is greatly appreciated. Anyway, let's go over to Rich Roll. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cooke, as always. Hey, Stuart.

Stu

Hello, mate.

Guy

Good to see you, mate. Our awesome guest today is Rich Roll. Rich, welcome to the podcast.

Rich

Great to be here, guys. Really excited to talk to you today. Thanks for having me.

Guy

Oh look, it's truly appreciated, honestly. We kick off the show, I seem to be asking the same question every show lately, which is a good way to start. If a complete stranger stopped you on the street, Rich, and then said, "What do you do for a living, mate?" How would you answer that?

Rich

I always struggle with this question. I never know quite how to answer it, but I guess the best answer is to say that I'm an athlete, I'm an author, I'm a wellness advocate. I do lots of different things. I host a podcast, I write books, I blog, I vlog. Kind of omnipresent on the internet, but basically all pivoting around trying to help people unlock their best selves, and doing that through fitness, nutrition, and meditation and other areas of self-improvement.

Guy

You're not the only one that struggles with that question either, mate. It seems to be the guests we're having on the show lately. Look, I've got a sneaking suspicion we're going to be exposing you to a lot of new listeners on our show, and the one thing we love doing is delving into the background a little bit of the history of Rich Roll. I've been certainly looking into you a lot more this week, mate, and you've been on a fascinating journey. It's quite incredible. I was wondering, would you mind taking us back a bit and touching on what you used to do, to yeah, the changes you've been making, and the epiphanies along the way, I guess?

This week we welcome back to the show Donal O'Neill. The man behind the movies Cereal Killers & CK2 - Run On Fat, is here to discuss his new movie: The Big Fat Fix.

“The Big Fat Fix” is an independent co-production between Donal and cardiologist Aseem Malhotra. In the movie, they travel to Pioppi in southern Italy where the residents enjoy longevity and a healthy old-age with low rates of heart disease, diabetes and dementia. With their discoveries in Pioppi, they offer practical solutions to preventing and reversing diet-related disease.

Having financed the movie with a successful crowdfunding campaign backed by Jamie Oliver and supportive articles in the New York Times and Men’s Health, the content of the movie is 100% free from any commercial influence.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • You premiered in British Parliament - how did that happen and what was the reaction?
  • Beyond travelling to Italy, how much science is behind the findings and recommendations within the movie?
  • Great to see the ‘move daily’ message in there. What have been your discoveries when it comes to exercise lifestyle and health?
  • After everything you’ve learned, what are you views on carbohydrate consumption?
  • What are your stress reduction strategies?

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 nutrition and welcome to this week's episode of health sessions where of course we have cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts around the globe to share the latest science and thinking and empowering everyone including ourselves to turn our health and lives around. This week we are doing it with the awesome Donal O'Neil. If you are not familiar with Donal, we've had him on the podcast before and he's the man behind the documentaries 'Cereal Killers' and 'Cereal Killers To Run Off Fat.'

[00:01:00] We've got him back on the show today to discuss his new documentary, 'The Big Fat Fix.' I watched it the other day and it is awesome and I encourage everyone that listens to this show to go and check it out. Just rent it, download it, stream it, whatever, share it with your family because it is an awesome message. In this movie, he basically teams up with cardiologist Hassim [U-th-ra 00:00:54] from the UK and he takes him on a journey to a small forgotten village in Italy where the true secrets of the Mediterranean diet can be found.

The message I love from this movie, it's not only food, it's medicine, but lifestyle is medicine too. I thought they nailed the message really really well. Of course, then they show you how we can apply that message into our busy lives of today. We dive into it. You are going to love it. It was great to have Donal back on the show as well. If you do enjoy this episode, we've got a couple of other interviews that are very related because we've had Donal on before and other people from the cereal killers movie. Just remember Sammy [Inki-nen 00:01:36] and also [Me-ri-de-th 00:01:38] Lauren and Dr. Peter [Brook-na-sa 00:01:40]. They were all related to the other movie, so if you want to delve into this more and this message, just go and check those episodes back, but we will link on the show notes as well over at 180nutrition.com.au.

[00:02:00] Of course, don't forget guys, we are now distributing in New Zealand, so our products are available in New Zealand and the USA and I think Dubai is not far behind as we speak as well. If you are looking to clean up your diet and you are looking to improve your lifestyle as well, just head back over to 180 nutrition.com.au and there is a whole host of products; clean and ethical, ones that only we use and produce ourselves that can certainly help enhance your daily diet to bring in this way of life even more. Check them out when you can and of course drop us an email if you've got any questions.

Anyway, let's go over to Donal O'Neil. Enjoy.

Hi, this is Guy Laurence. I'm joined with Stewart Cook as always. Hey, Stu.

Stu

Hello mate. How are you.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Donal O'Neil. Donal, welcome back to the show.

Donal

Thanks guys. Good to see you again.

Guy

Mate, did you know that you have actually just broke a new record for 180nutrition. The first person to come back on the show for the 3rd time in 4 years. Can you believe that.

Donal

I will take a bow ...

Guy

It's absolutely awesome to have you back on to discuss your new movie in a bit, 'The Big Fat Fix.' We watched it the other day and just thought again you've just nailed a fantastic message and if we can continue to spread the word for you mate, then we are happy to get behind it because you are doing awesome stuff Donal. Well done. Fantastic.

Donal

Much appreciated. Thank you.

Guy

Let's maybe touch on who's Donal O'Neil, just in case people ... We are picking up new listeners every week. I'm pretty sure maybe 50% of [inaudible 00:03:34] seen your movies from the past, but we could be exposed to a new audience today as well. How would you do your elevator pitch, mate? Who's Donal O'Neil in a snapshot?

Donal

[00:04:00] In a nutshell. I'm a former athlete who got very badly injured and got to the age of 30 and couldn't run any more. That's probably the first thing I would say about myself. About 6 years ago, my father had an unexpected heart attack. He too was an elite athlete and I wondered why the hell that happened. That curiosity led me to completely changing careers. I was in the tech industry prior to that and online marketing and I decided I want to tell a few stories about health and wellness and human performance and I flew to South Africa and fortunately bumped into one professor Timothy [Nokes 00:04:27] who just happens to be the greatest sports scientist on the planet.

[00:05:00] He was very generous with his time and his resources and we made a movie together called 'Cereal Killers.' That was back in 2013. Off the back of that, we followed up with phenomenal [inaudible 00:04:44] champion who contacted me off the back of 'Cereal Killers' to say that he too eats a low carbohydrate, high fat diet and was winning world [armor 00:04:53] title. We were on a bit of a role there and 'The Big Fat Fixer,' our third movie with the brilliant young British Cardiologist Hassim [Ma-la-ha-dra 00:05:02] takes a full circle into my 6 year investigation into health and lifestyle and longevity and human performance.

In a nutshell, that's ... That's actually not a nutshell, that's quite a lengthy nutshell.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What does paleo mean to you?
  • Have your views regarding paleo changed at all since your book ‘Practical Paleo’ came out in 2012?
  • Why do so many people struggle to make long-lasting change when it comes to health and good eating habits?
  • How do we create healthy eating habits when our families are not onboard with the changes or have heard negative press regarding the paleo diet?
  • You’re a busy entrepreneur, how do you handle stress?

Hey. This is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition. Of course, welcome to this week’s episode of the health sessions where we cut through the confusion by connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. This week, we are doing it with Diana Sanfilippo, who is the best-selling author of this book that I actually happen to have with me, Practical Paleo. Now, this has been dubbed the Paleo Bible by readers everywhere. It came out, I think in 2012 and spent many many weeks on the New York Times’ Bestseller’s list. I think she has sold over 500,000 copies, which is pretty impressive.

[00:01:00] If you’re not familiar with Diane, she is owner, founder of Balanced Bites. She is also a certified nutrition consultant and of course the New York Times’ Bestselling Author. She got an impressive resume. It was awesome to have her on the show today. We literally dive into the topics of what does it mean to leave a practical paleo life, how she implements it in her lifestyle and what she has learned since the book has first come out. We get into, she is now releasing a revised edition of the book very soon by the time you’re hearing this podcast.

Also, why revise a book as opposed to writing a new one as well. I guess the four years in between, if any reveres a change. We’re getting into all sorts of topics including stress management, her exercise routines and all sorts. It was great. It was awesome to have her on the show. She is definitely a wealth of information and certainly making people think about the way they eat, which is what we are all for. Now, if you are listening to this on iTunes, if you could leave us a review, that would be fantastic. It just helps to spread the word. We want to get people listening to this for free, the reviews help us internationally as well.
[00:02:00] By subscribing in it as well, put five stars, so if you are enjoying these podcasts and consuming on a regular basis, a, it would be great to hear from you. Let us know. Also of course, help others find this podcast too. Yeah, we just love getting it out there. Anyway, let’s go over to the show and over to Diane. Enjoy.

Guy

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stu Cook as always. Hi Stu.

Stu

Hello mate.

Guy

Our lovely guest today is Diane Sanfilippo. Diane, welcome to the show.

Diane

Thanks for having me.

Guy

[00:03:00] I hope I got the surname correct. Now, before I get into the questions and start hitting you, I have to say, I’ve got your book here. My fiancee absolutely pulls this apart and loves it. I know she is very excited to know that you’re being interviewed today. That’s awesome, mate. It’s incredibly. Now, before we get into the book and everything else that you do, the first question I like to ask everyone on the show is if you were, say, at a bus stop and you were stopped by a complete stranger on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Diane

I always struggle with that question because I often don’t know how to describe what I do. Typically, these days, I say I’m an author. I write health and nutrition cookbooks, some thing to that effect.

It often depends on who is asking and what they might understand. If they’re someone much older who wouldn’t really get the whole online Internet-based business, programs and all of that. Typically, I do say I’m an author and I write nutrition-based cookbooks because that’s the bulk of it at this point, I suppose.
