180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions. (health & nutrition)

This week welcome to the show Josh Sparks. Josh has spent the past 14 years in high growth leadership roles as CEO of sass & bide, Managing Director with Urban Outfitters Inc, and CEO of Thom Browne New York.

As a lifelong health and fitness enthusiast, and with five years of powerfully personal experience with ancestral health protocols, Josh was consistently astounded at the lack of any authentically healthy dining in top retail centres around the world. Recognizing the transformational potential for a health and wellness brand founded on evidence based dietary principles, and excited by the opportunity to genuinely enhance how customers look, feel and perform, Josh brought together his many years of professional experience and personal passion to create THR1VE.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the main motivations behind the food industry? Profit? Wellness?
  • How do we take people from thinking about wellness to actually empowering them and taking action?
  • Has the word ‘paleo’ had it’s day? Where do you see the nutritional and health/wellness trends going?
  • You’re in good shape. What are your fat loss tips for the time poor?
  • Who inspires you in the health & wellness circles?

This week, we welcome back to the show the awesome Josh Sparks who is the founder of THR1VE. It was always a pleasure getting Josh back on the show and we get into some fantastic topics today including, where is the food industry and where is it going?

[00:01:00] Are we seeing any improvements ... Josh is in the firing line every single day with his THR1VE cafes ... What are the main motivations behind the food industry and world? Is it profit, is it wellness and why we have to be proactive and educate ourselves and know exactly what's going on so we can make better nutritional food and health choices moving forward. Josh also shares his top tips for fat loss and what he's discovered over the years and what he does and how he maintains his shape. Josh is the same age as me and, which is 43, I think, too and he's in fantastic condition, he looks after his health tremendously.

[00:01:30] We also get into his recent discoveries on longevity and what he did with Dr. John Hart, who was a fellow guest on the podcast as well. We get into that topic and we also get into a whole lot more including Josh's ready-made meals and what he's doing with THR1VE and making actually good nutrition much more accessible for people that are on a budget and have difficulty with time on their hands, which is a lot of us. No doubt, you're gonna enjoy today's episode.

[00:02:00] I just wanted to mention as well guys, if you do listen to our podcast on a regular basis through iTunes, please leave us a review. It takes two minutes to do, to say whatever you need to, whatever is honest, hopefully positive. If these shows are actually helping you and you get a lot out of them, a simple review, subscribe and a five star, goes a long way to helping us get the message out for other people that are trying to make the changes and find this content online, so that would be awesome. Anyway, let's go over to Josh Sparks. This one's a pillar.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I'm joined with Stuart Cook as always. I'll say good afternoon Stu.

Stu

Hello mate, how are you?

Guy

Awesome man and out fantastic guest today is Josh Sparks. Josh welcome back to the show.

Josh

Thank you so much for having me back, Gug and Stu.

Guy

[00:02:30] Josh, I got to say mate, you've made the next level 'cause you have now returned to the podcast. You've made like the elite few that have come on the podcast more than once.

Josh

That's actually been my ambition, that's been my dream. We've got a little jar of awesome up there, so I'm gonna write a note and put it in the jar of awesome.

Guy

Yeah, totally man, totally. Well, it's been a while, I think it's like two years almost, so it goes quickly, absolutely [crosstalk 00:02:48]

Josh

It's flown by. I haven't seen you guys in about that time, but it feels like not that long ago we were together doing the THR1VE conference on the [crosstalk 00:02:57]

Guy

You think? [00:03:00]

Josh

Mate, you're looking fantastic. You like reverse aging or something, I don't know. \

Stu

There you go, that was a big royal [inaudible 00:03:06] Take that mask off, Guy and we can get into [crosstalk 00:03:12] okay?

Guy

Yeah [crosstalk 00:03:13]

Stu

Mission Impossible [crosstalk 00:03:14]

Guy

 [00:03:30] I know, I know. Josh, just in case ... I ask everyone on the podcast this question. I don't think I actually asked it to you last time you came on. Just in case our listeners haven't been listening for the last two years, which is probably quite a few of them, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Josh

 [00:04:00] Oh wow, well, I would say that I'm the founder and CEO of THR1VE, which has been in my life for the last four and a half years or so. I've had an interesting journey pre-THR1VE. I spent 15 years building fashion labels of all things in Sydney and in New York and then in Philadelphia. It's been a long and winding road, always focused on consumers. I've never done business to business, always business to consumer. I feel like I'm still selling to the same people, I'm just not selling them superficial surface stuff anymore. I'm selling them nutrition to actually change them from the inside out, rather than the reverse.

Guy

Yeah, I was gonna say, if they asked you what THR1VE was, what would you say then?

Josh

[00:04:30] Well, our little tagline is extraordinary health, made deliciously simple. It actually kind of is a good summary. What we're trying to do is take the best of high performance nutrition, the best of nutrition science, match it up with our chefs to make it delicious, 'cause if it's not, there's not really much point and then make it as simple as possible. By that, we mean, accessible in terms that you can get it wherever you are, whenever you want and not crazy prices, not café restaurant prices, trying to make it available to as many Australians as we can.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition and of course, welcome to another stellar episode of the Health Sessions. Every week we connect with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and latest science thinking, and empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. [00:00:30] This week we are doing with the awesome Shaun O’Gorman. Boy did I love this show.Shaun is just a tower of strength, man. He set up what’s called the strong life project. Shaun has got a phenomenal story and background in what he’s doing. [00:01:00] To put it shortly, Shaun spent 13 years in the police force. We’ll get in to some of the things that he had seen and witnessed and had to deal with on a daily basis in the particular part of the force that he was in, in the dog squad. It’s quite incredible actually. He talks about his PTSD, and his depression, and his suicidal thoughts, and how he got through that and has come back out the other side to set up the Strong Life project, as a place for men in particular. Even that have been in the military or the police force, not necessarily, but where they can actually start to be open and talk about these things. [00:01:30] Shaun is sharing all his wisdom, what he’s learned and what he feels is necessary to turn these things around and then become a leader in your own family and your life. In Shaun’s words, he says, “This being a loving, connected, and powerful leader means you’re the best husband, partner, father, friend, and colleague you can be, whilst not being influenced by other people’s opinions.” It was just awesome and I loved every second of it. I have no doubt you’re going to get heaps out of this today. If you do know anyone that might be going through a bit of tough time or a dark place at the moment, then definitely, definitely share this episode with them after you listen to it because it’s things like this that can really shape and help people, the direction of their life moving forward, especially when it’s in that sort of place. It was awesome. [00:02:00] [00:02:30] Don’t forget guys, I want to mention as well, that we are giving away free samples of our 180 Super Food Protein Blend at the moment. All you need to do if you haven’t tried it, is come back to 180nutrition.com.au and click the big banner on the home page, and that will lead you where you can get your free sample. We just ask for a small fee in shipping and handling, which we think is fair enough. We always say, replace your breakfast with it. If you’re struggling to eat cleanly on a regular basis, start with a smoothie, start at breakfast time. It’s gonna be two minutes and you can get real food real fast. It’s empowering thousands of people. We aim to reach a hundred thousand people in Australia this year to at least try 180 so we can contribute and help their nutrition. So if you know anyone as well that you might think benefit from the 180 blend. Please, just send them over to 180 where they can actually grab a free sample and take it from there. All right guys, that is awesome. Let’s go over to Shaun. Enjoy the show, this is a great one. [00:03:00] Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I’m joined with Stuart Cooke. Good morning, Stuart. Oh.

  • Are there any myths or misconceptions around mould?

Guy

Hey everybody this is Guy Lawrence, of course, of 180 nutrition, and welcome to another awesome episode of health sessions. Where we're constantly connected with leading global health and wellness experts to share best and the latest science and thinking. Empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. And this week we're doing it on the topic of mold, and our awesome guest is Penny Tralau. Now, Penny has got a company called Mould Rescue, and she basically goes into your home and assesses the mold situation, and what you can do about it. [00:01:00] This episode isn't so much about the harmful effects that mold can cause on you, symptoms that can be related to around cold and flu symptoms, asthma, skin conditions and so forth. But this more of how we can start looking at our home. How we can adjust things moving forward. And how we can create prevention. And of course if you need to assess it even deeper, then somebody like Penny is perfect for that job. [00:01:30] So it was great to get stuck in and quiz Penny on all things mold today. I certainly learned a lot myself, and it's a topic we've not covered on the podcast before, especially coming from this angle as well. So it was fantastic to hear what Penny has to say. And I have no doubt after listening to this episode of the podcast; you're going to be looking around your home in a very different way, which is very cool. So it's bringing awareness to this topic in general, which is what we wanted to do. So we're very grateful for Penny coming on the show. [00:02:00] And I just wanted to mention as well, guys you might have noticed that we have currently got a promotion running, where we are giving free samples of our 180 super food protein blend away. All you need to do is go back to 180Nutrition.com.au and there's a banner on the homepage. You just click that, and all we ask is that you cover a small fee of shipping and handling. I'm sure if you've been listening to our podcast for a while, you know exactly what our super food blend is all about, and how to use it. And if not, the best place to start is with breakfast to help you cut out those processed meals and start with the smoothie using the 180. Anyway, learn a bit more because I promise you we've had thousands of people that are walking your path and we've had some fantastic results by helping people eliminate processed foods and eating something much more nourishing that's got healthy fats, carbs, and good fiber of course, and a good source of protein. [00:02:30] Anyway guys, let's go over to Penny. Enjoy everything mold and don't forget, if you want a free sample, go back to 180Nutrition. com.au on the homepage, click the banner. Enjoy guys. Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm with Stuart Cook, as always. Good morning Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy. Guy: And our lovely guest today is Penny Tralau. Penny, welcome to the show.

Penny

Good morning. How are you guys?

Guy

We're fabulous. Thank you.

Stu

Good. Thanks Penny.

Guy

Looking forward to this topic. We've not covered it on the show before. So I have no doubt it's going to be very interesting. [00:03:00] So Penny, everyone I ask on the show at the beginning, is if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Penny

I said, I would be a certified mold remediator.

This week welcome to the show Tim Noakes.  Prof Noakes was born in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1949. As a youngster, he had a keen interest in sport and attended Diocesan College in Cape Town. Following this, he studied at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and obtained an MBChB degree in 1974, an MD in 1981 and a DSc (Med) in Exercise Science in 2002.

In the early 90s, Noakes teamed up with Morné du Plessis to drive the founding of the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA). The Institute was built to provide a facility that would primarily fund research in sports performance. The application of this research would provide sports personnel of all disciplines with the means to improve. Noakes and du Plessis also wanted to use it as a platform to build public interest in the country’s top sports people and build state pride.

Prof Noakes has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He has been cited more than 16 000 times in scientific literature, has an H-index of 71 and has been rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa for a second 5-year term. He has won numerous awards over the years and made himself available on many editorial boards.

He has a passion for running and is still active, running half marathons when he can. He is a devoted husband, father and grandfather and now, in his retirement, is enjoying spending more time with his family.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • You’ve been a huge voice in making changes within the dietary guidelines over the last few years, how has the response been?
  • Can you tell us about the ‘Ocean View Project” and the results you have seen so far.
  • What results have you seen in reversing diabetes?
  • You’ve written a book called ‘Waterlogged’. Can you explain the concept behind this book and overhydration
  • On the topic of longevity should we favour a specific type of exercise?
  • And much much more.

[00:01:00] Hey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition. Welcome to another stellar episode of the Health Sessions, of course, where we are connected with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. This week we welcome back to the show the one and only, awesome, Mr. Professor Tim Noakes from South Africa. Now, if you're unfamiliar with Tim's work, he has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He's been cited more than 16,000 times in scientific literature. He has a H-index of 71 and has been rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa for a second five year term. Amazing. He has won numerous awards over the years, and made himself available for many editorial boards, and of course, has a very famous book. The Law of Running is considered the bible of the running sport itself. It was just a privilege to get Tim back on the show today and pick his brains on what he's been up to over the last few years.

[00:01:30] Now, if you're unfamiliar with Tim more recently ... Well, I say more recently, a few year ago, which we get into today, he kind of flipped his way of thinking around fueling for sport where he had been for 33 years promoting the low-fat, the carb loading, endurance sport diet for athletes. Then had a complete turn around and came out with that, which is a huge deal. We get into that today, and over the five years since, I think, this has happened what he's been up to and his fights against type II diabetes as well in South Africa. We get into sports recovery, sports hydration from his famous book, Water Logged, as well.

[00:02:00] It's all in there and you are going to love it. If you do love the show guys, just share it with people that you think are going to benefit from this kind of information because we're getting more and more people listening to our podcast. We're getting more and more emails and from people that are just having these epiphanies around their health, and it's definitely helping everyone, including ourselves as well. Help spread the love, share the word, and get this information out there with people, because it does change people's lives.

Anyway guys, let's go over to Tim. Hit me up on Instagram stories if you enjoy the episode. Oh, I've also started my own little Instagram channel as well, which is Guy H. Lawrence, which you can follow me on there as well, outside of 180 Nutrition. Awesome guys. Let's go over to Tim Noakes. Enjoy.

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

Stu

Hello, mate.

Guy

Our fantastic guest today is Mr. Tim Noakes. Tim, welcome back to the podcast.

Tim

Thanks very much Guy, lovely to be back with you.

Guy

It's phenomenal, mate. I can't believe it's been over three years since you last come on, and I have no doubt a lot has happened since then that we can get into today.

Tim

Yeah.

Guy

Tim, there's a question that we ask everyone on the show at the moment and that is, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Tim

At present I'm retired, so I do what I want to do. Essentially, I'm finishing up a five-year trial against me on the basis that I gave information on Twitter, which was considered unconventional. What we did was, we put the low-fat diet on trial. We said, "Okay, if you're going to try me for this nonsense, let's see whether there's any evidence that the low-fat diet is healthy." So we put it on trial, and the trial ended on April the 21st and I won 10-0.

And this week we are doing it with the awesome Lesley Maxwell. Now, if you're not familiar with Lesley, she redefines what it means to be 50 and fabulous. I'll tell you, she truly does, I mean it's amazing. She's a mother of three, she's Melbourne based and has more than 20 body sculpting titles to her name and represented Australia in New York where she won the prestigious Miss USA figure championship.

And, she's an Oxygen ambassador, plus Oxygen cover girl and Lesley is also a regular, ah, can't get my words out, contributor to Oxygen magazine and has appeared on TV and ACA and newspapers and so forth. And it was fantastic to tap into the topics that she discusses today, especially when it comes to training. Weight training especially, for people over 50 years old, which is phenomenal. And I'm a huge fan of Lesley's message and what she shares with us today and I have no doubt if you're not doing any weight training, this is going to inspire you. And I certainly am a big believer in it as well. So, I hope you enjoy the episode!

[00:02:00] And I just wanted to mention as well, guys, that we are currently giving away free samples of the 180 Superfood Blend, protein Superfood Blend.

So, if you want to try it and want to know what all the fuss is about and why thousands of other people who have walked your path in the past are using 180, making smoothies out of it and actually getting rid of some of those unfavorable foods and replacing it with the 180 smoothie, then you can go and try it out. All we ask in return is that you pay a small shipping and handling fee, and we will give you four serves for nothing. There you go, how's that for a deal? Anyway, go and check it out and hit me up on Instagram if you do so. Anyway, let's go over to Lesley. Enjoy the podcast and of course when it comes to iTunes guys, you know what to do. Awesome.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stu Cooke, as always. Hello Stu.

Stu 

Hello Guy!

Guy

And our lovely guest today is Lesley Maxwell. Lesley, welcome to the show.

Lesley

Hi Stu, hi Guy! Thank you so much for having me, it's great to be here.

Guy

[00:03:00] The privilege is all ours, right? It's a true honor. Now, just to kickstart the show Lesley, we ask a similar question to everyone at the start and that is, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Lesley

[00:03:30] Well, I actually change people's lives. Truly, I give them their lives back again because often people become so, you know at a certain age they think they should go downhill instead of revamping and getting better and stronger and healthier. And I feel I honestly give people a new lease of life and I give women, you know, help them get their sexy back and feel great and that's what life is. We've got so much to offer, and so much life to live. It's a shame that you shouldn't do that, just because you get to 50 or whatever it is they feel it's shut off point. When we can really improve our bodies and health and go on and live this amazing life in the best health and strength we can. So, it feels great.

This week welcome to the show Bronnie Ware. Bronnie’s calling is to lead by courageous example; a calling she honours with integrity. Having sat by bedsides of the terminally ill for several years, she knows the pain of dying with regret. Bronnie also understands the value of humour and being real. Consequently she exercises her power of choice with consciousness on a daily basis.

While acknowledging how much courage it can take to truly allow all we deserve through, Bronnie believes we are all worthy of joy. Her work and teachings draw on first-hand experience, always delivered with relatable honesty. With a grounded attitude and great sense of humour, Bronnie connects to people from all walks of life.

Her incredible life experience goes well beyond the years with dying people and has taught her how much we are all alike, rather than different. This attitude also connects Bronnie easily and delightfully to her audience worldwide, particularly once they experience her energy in person at live events.

One of her favourite things is getting people off their computers and back to real-life conversations and experiences. Bronnie's life so far has also taught her how crucial it is to enjoy the precious gift of time we are given, by courageously living as true to our heart as possible. With a passionate love of keeping life simple, Bronnie is also a master storyteller and a powerful teacher of courage.

Her favourite role is as a mother. Her favourite teacher is nature.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What were the top 5 regrets of the dying that inspired you to live life differently?
  • How to we go beyond our fears and self-doubts so we don’t live a life of regret?
  • What 3 tips would you give someone if they wanted to make substantial change in their lives so they don’t live with regret?
  • You have a new book called ‘Bloom’ out. What can we expect?
  • Space is a big theme in your new book Bloom, how has this shaped your life?

Shop: http://shop.180nutrition.com.au/

This week our awesome guest is Bronnie Ware. And boy, did I love this episode. I mean, it's a phenomenal story, and if you haven't heard of Bronnie before, we're obviously going to get into it well in the podcast. So make sure you stick around for this one. But, essentially she calls herself a fifteen-year overnight success, because she wrote a phenomenal book called "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying." It went on and became a worldwide, huge phenomenon, and sold over a million copies, and then's gone on to do amazing things ever since. She shares her findings and teachings and how she's applying them things into her own life as well.

[00:01:30] What I love so much about this message today is that it just reminds us that life is not infinite. We do have a limited time here, and these messages are fantastic to keep us in check and actually remind us and ask ourselves the questions about what are the most important things in life and are we applying them, are we doing them, and to live with courage and step forward and take that on. Because ultimately, like I always remind myself every day, is that all we have is now. All we have is this moment, right? Even though we spend so much time in the future or the past or whatever. And Bronnie just articulates it so well today, and she's just awesome. And it was a real privilege to have her on the show. So, I have no doubt you guys are going to enjoy. Sit back, and make you contemplate the way we're doing things, which is great, which is great.

Now, guys, I just want to give a shout out for our latest podcast review. We love them. Please keep them coming in, because it helps with the rankings and helps spread the word so other people just like you can listen to these episodes. But, it's from Katie Meredith. Thank you, Katie. She said, "I've been binge-listening to the guys of 180 for the last month due to a new long commute. I'm hooked. They're easily the most engaging, informative, and easy to understand podcast about nutrition, exercise, sleep, and everything to make you a better you. All the speakers explain the concepts thoroughly, but also give simple and easy ways to implement the tips into our everyday lives. It's accessible, real information. I am an exercise physiologist, and I've directed many of my clients, as well as my parents, to The Health Sessions, who also reap the benefits. Can't wait to hear more."

Big thanks for that review. Like, awesome. I really appreciate it, guys.

And, anyway, let's stop talking. Let's go over. You know what I do. Enjoy the episode, and I'll see you soon. Bye.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined by Stuart Cooke, as always. Good morning, Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

And our lovely guest today is Bronnie Ware. Bronnie, welcome to the show.

[00:03:00]
Bronnie

Thanks a lot, guys. Welcome. Thank you.

Guy

It's going to be awesome. I'm so excited about this. Through a mutual friend of Mr. Marcus Pierce ... I know he speaks highly of you. And I've just been interested, Bronnie, because I've just been constantly seeing you come up ... Since you've been on my, kind of, radar, I'm starting to see you everywhere, and your books and the podcasts and everything, and it was like, Oh my God, we have to get Bronnie on the show. This is phenomenal. So thank you for your time, Bronnie.

Bronnie

Oh, it's my pleasure. Thank you.

Guy

So the first question I ask everyone on the show, Bronnie, is if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Bronnie 

What I did for a living? Okay, well, I'd say I'm a teacher of courage.

[00:00:30] [00:01:00] Hey everybody. Guy Lawrence of course from 180 Nutrition, and welcome to another fantastic episode of the Health Sessions, where we are connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and latest science and thinking, empowering people to turn their health and lives around. This week we have the awesome guest of Dave O’Brien, and he is the founder, I should say co-founder, of this amazing facility in Melbourne called Fifth Element Wellness. David has worked with some fantastic people including Ido Portal, Charles Poliquin, James LaValle, worked on blood markers and biochemistry, and also Louie Simmons, strength training, posterior chain and so forth. I’ve got to know Dave, he’s become a very good friend of mine and he is a wealth of knowledge and one of the first people I’ll pick up the phone to when I need to get the question answered, and to get him to share his wisdom on the podcast today was phenomenal. We tackle his own story from how he burnt out to chronic fatigue and adrenal fatigue massively, and the steps he started to take to reverse that around. Not only that, but the things that he sees on a regular basis through his Fifth Element Wellness, and the steps we can take to adjust accordingly moving forward, to create our most optimum wellness and health and the best versions of ourselves.

[00:01:30] [00:02:00] Now this goes off in all sort of directions. We cover many many topics, like I said adrenal fatigue, the fitness industry in general, movement, where we should be starting from when it comes to exercise as well, and we get into hormonal function as well. You name it, it’s in there. Probably a podcast you’re going to listen to two or three times to make sure you understand what’s going on. It goes deep in places, but in other parts as well we have a really good time, and I loved every minute of it and I have no doubt you will too. I will mention the Internet is a little bit scratchy in the first five to 10 minutes. It’s still fine but the Skype drops in and out slightly so there’s not much we can do, but it clears up and is fine for the rest of the show. So stick with it. Well worth it.

[00:02:30] And of course if you’re enjoying our podcasts, please subscribe to us on iTunes. Leave a review and share this with family and friends or anyone you think would benefit from listening to this episode. Because once people start to get this information behind their ears … between them I should say, not behind them, and start thinking about health and nutrition differently, these podcasts become super powerful and I’m blessed to be sharing them with you guys. And enjoy as always. Anyway, let’s go over to David O’Brien. Enjoy. Hey this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cook is always. Good afternoon Stu. Good to see you.

Stu

Hello Guy. Thank you. Welcome to be here.

Guy

And our awesome guest today is Mr Dave O’Brien. Dave, welcome to the show buddy. David: Thank you very much. Hi guys. It’s great to be on the show, it’s amazing. Great experience, thank you. [00:03:00] Guy: It’s the official one. We did a bit of a rogue podcast last year for our listeners, I think after our fourth ice bath, and we got the iPhone set up and did one from the inside the Wim Hof Retreat. But it’s to get you back on and actually do an official episode and grill you for the next hour mate. Because I know what you’re going to have to say is going to benefit probably everyone listening to this show today. So cool. David: Yeah, I’m really looking forward to.

Guy

[00:03:30] So Dave mate, the first question we ask everyone on the show recently, it’s been a bit of a theme, if you got stopped in the street by a stranger and they asked you what you do for a living, what would you say?

David

[00:04:00] Probably the straightforward answer would be to say that I’m a strength and conditioning coach. But it’s actually not true. Because I’ve sort of drifted so far away from a strength conditioning coach, it’s just unreal. And then at the same time, I might say I’m looking at functional medicine, but then I’m [inaudible 00:03:58] inside those parameters as well, so really ultimately what I would say is I actually help people achieve their optimal health. The best version of what they can possibly achieve of themselves. Ultimately that’s what my job is.

Guy

Yeah, perfect. Seen that first-hand, mate, and you’re doing an amazing job.

David

Thank you.

Guy

[00:04:30] So let’s take it back a bit Dave, because I know … and this is a compliment by the way. You’re probably one of the most passionate people I know within the health industry. Your depth of knowledge is phenomenal. But I’m interested to know where that comes from, because you started life in the fitness industry and obviously it’s morphed into what it is now. So can you take us back, because you’ve been on a bit of a journey yourself. Can you fill us in a little bit?

David

[00:05:00] Yeah definitely. It has been an amazing journey my story, but my story I reckon is actually shared by most people. So what I’m about to say, I reckon there’s a large majority of the population that are just going through the exact same experience, and obviously it’s all to do with adrenal burnout, adrenal fatigue, adrenal dysfunction, whatever you want to label it, but ultimately that’s the experience I went through. [inaudible 00:05:19] all the time, and this is what people are going through day-to-day.

[00:05:30] [00:06:00] My body from an early age showed clear signs of me suffering adrenal burnout, and I had a lot of illnesses like chronic fatigue syndrome. I got a thing called Bell’s palsy. I remember when we did the last podcast I actually talked about the experience that I had through the breathing, doing that through with Wim Hof, that actually I had Bell’s palsy on one side of my face, and that actually like a viral infection basically, it actually causes a slight paralysis on one side of my face, and actually when I did the Wim Hof breathing, I felt this tingling sensation in that left side of my face, which for me was actually nerve endings getting stimulated, and all these things that actually hadn’t been stimulated because I hadn’t been getting oxygen into my body ultimately. So my body was giving me clear signs that, like anyone, I was just avoiding those signs. And I just kept on burning the candle at both ends. [00:06:30] [00:07:00]

[00:07:30] I was incredibly active, obviously as a personal trainer. I’ve been a personal trainer or strength and conditioning coach for almost 18, 19 years now. And so basically I was doing a lot of weight training, at the time I was doing a lot of triathlons, marathons. All these things that people like to do, and on top of that I was training sometimes 50, 55 clients in a week. I was sleeping about five hours, and then on the weekend I would hit it pretty hard. I partied incredibly hard. I was drinking and you name it, but basically the works. And the thing is, from my perspective, this is the majority of the population. Most people are doing this. And then what really started to come to a head, is I started to get a lot of serious complications that were coming through, especially neurologically. I actually started to get a lot of things like anxiety, and I actually went from a very social person to actually having social anxiety. I used to get very anxious in social settings, which really started to make me feel quite scared, because it was the complete reverse to the person I was previously.

Hey, everyone. This is Guy Lawrence, of course, and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions, where we connect with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering all of us to turn our health and lives around.

[00:00:30] And we have a fantastic podcast episode for you today with the awesome Mr. Marcus Pearce. It’s been just a pleasure to get Marcus on our show, he’s a good friend, he’s a ball of energy, he’s probably the most positive person I know and every time I catch up with Marcus I feel like I’m on cloud nine, and it is just awesome to be able to share his message with you today.

[00:01:00] Now if you have no idea who Marcus is, he is the CEO of Australia’s number one health and lifestyle podcast, network, I should say, which is The Wellness Couch. They’re fantastic, and in 2014, he created the Exceptional Life Blueprint, a company dedicated to helping people rise from mediocre, mediocre, I should say, to magnificent in each area of his life, and not just one. And Marcus spreads his message through his online programs, podcasts, live events, and retreats, and one-on-one mentoring and more.

Just help us spread the word. Help us get these episodes out there so we can all empower our lives for the better. Anyway, let’s go over to Marcus Pearce. Enjoy.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined by Stuart Cook. Good morning, Stu.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

And I just got to say, your camera just froze with the best expression ever then. That was just perfect.

Stu

That wasn’t the camera that was frozen. That was me. I was just waiting for something. I was waiting for a pearl of wisdom to come out your mouth.

Guy

And there’ll be plenty today, so hold on, mate. Hold on.

Stu

[inaudible 00:02:03].

Guy

And our special guest today is Mr. Marcus Pearce. Marcus, welcome to the show.

Marcus

Guy, Stu, thanks for having me on. Well done on what you guys have been up to. Incredible what 180′s been able to do, both in the health and wellness space and in the podcast space, so well done, and yeah, a pleasure to be with you guys.

Guy

Great.

Stu

Thank you so much.

Guy

[00:02:30] Thank you. You’re too kind. You’re too kind, mate. Now, Marcus, even though I know you well personally, we’ll be exposing you to many new listeners today. So I love to ask everyone on the show, just to get the ball rolling, if a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?

Marcus

[00:03:00] I have a different answer every day. I don’t know about you guys, but there’s always a different answer. Someone, it would be journalist by profession that used to be sports media that transitioned to health and wellness personal growth media. If someone had seen the online marketing, it would be I have an online program, and I run live events about helping people.

[00:03:30] Really, the purpose of my life is to help people rise from mediocre to magnificent in all areas of life, and not just one. But that is often too deep and meaningful for someone in the street, so to give that to someone in the street just knocks them out. So it’s actually just, yeah, journalist by profession that is a sports nut that wanted to do more than just work in sports, so I transitioned from sports media into health and wellness personal growth media, and then they’ll normally say, “What does that mean, and how do you do it?” and then I’ll tell them about The Wellness Couch and Exceptional Life Blueprint and the rest.

[00:00:30] Hey everybody, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition, of course, and welcome to another fantastic episode of the Health Sessions, where every week we connect with the leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. This week we are doing it with the awesome Dan Pardi. Now, Dan is an entrepreneur and a researcher, whose life work is centered on how to facilitate health behaviors in others.

[00:01:00] He does research with psychiatric and behavioral science department at Stanford, and the Department of Neurology and Endocrinology at Leiden University in Netherlands. God, I’m trying to get my words out today, not doing a great job. Dan Pardi, not only is he a wealth of experience and a top guy, we tackle everything on sleep today. We’ve really been itching to delve into this topic more over the years, since we’re doing the podcast, and I tell you what, boy, Dan didn’t disappoint.

[00:01:30] How do you get to sleep? Why is sleep so important? Why do we wake up in the middle of the night? What strategies can we do around it? What effects is that having on the body? This goes pretty deep, it’s a podcast I’m going to listen to again. Dan’s knowledge on the human body itself is quite incredible, and this podcast is fantastic. So, I highly recommend it. I’d give it a good listen, because no doubt it’s going to make you want to get your eight hours sleep and get into a bit of a rhythm every week, that’s for sure.

[00:02:00] Beyond that, I just want to give a shout out to our most recent podcast review on iTunes. It’s greatly appreciated. It’s great stuff, five stars from [inaudible 00:01:47]. “I’ve been a customer of 180 Nutrition for a few years now and I really like they’re non-preachy about the holistic approach to health and wellbeing. I just listened to the self love podcast,” that’s the one with Eloise King we did, and it was a very powerful one. “Thank you for being my companion in my journey of self discovery, love, and starting over.” You’re very welcome [inaudible 00:02:07], and it’s great to know, to hear these things.

[00:02:30] If you are listening to our podcast on a regular basis and yet to leave a review, head over to iTunes. It would be greatly appreciated because it obviously helps other people want to listen to our podcast too, which is what it’s all about in sharing this content with everyone. Of course, give us some feedback on today’s episode, guys. The best place to catch me is probably on our Instagram Stories channel. Flick me a video or message about when you listen to this episode, and that’s just on 180 Nutrition. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope yo enjoy this podcast as much as we did. Anyway, let’s go over to Dan.

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stu [inaudible 00:02:52]. Good morning, Stu. Good to see you.

Stu

Good morning, Guy.

Guy

Our awesome guest today is Mr. Dan Pardi. Dan, welcome to the show.

Dan

Thank you, Guy, so much for having me on. It’s great to be here

Guy

I’ve got to warn you, Dan, this is probably Stu’s most passionate topic ever, sleep. He’s been very excited. It’s something we haven’t really fully covered on the show before. We’ve had discussions on the podcast, but to bring someone in to talk more in depth about it is going to be awesome, so brace yourself, mate.

Dan

[00:03:30] Yeah, all right, good. Well, I am fascinated and really passionate about the subject myself so I’m happy to talk with you guys about it. Anybody who already is passionate about it, they’re my people.

Stu

Fantastic, fantastic.

Guy

Awesome. Dan, the first question I ask everyone on the show is just to give listeners a little bit of information. If a stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say to him?

Dan

[00:04:30] My mission is to promote personal health mastery in people. That’s what I do. I’ve been interested in health my whole life. My career, my education has been centered around this topic. I was interested in the topic from when I was a young kid, and I think I probably got into it because I was interested in athletics. I got injured when I was younger. Then the idea of healing and fixing my body was planted in me, and from a young age. Even though I moved past that injury, it still stayed in my mind about how to optimize, and the fascination grew with how to train better, to how does body fat, how is it regulated in the brain. It just kept going. I discovered sleep serendipitously about ten years ago. I completed a Masters in Exercise Physiology and after that I worked with Dean Ornish, we were doing lifestyle interventions for patients with prostate cancer.

[00:05:00] What I really liked about that research was that we were looking at not just a single nutrient or a single intervention, but rather a multi-factorial approach to promote wellness in patients that have prostate cancer to see if all these things, which we know matter, could affect the internal hormonal milieu and then have the affect the progression of the disease that they already had. Slowing down the progression of a diagnosis that existed or even reversing it. That made a really big impression on me and who I am and what I want to do.

[00:05:30] From there, I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for almost a decade in medical affairs, and I set up and ran the medical affairs department and we had a drug for sleep, so my job on a daily basis was to interact with some of the top sleep researchers in the world, literally, discussing research ideas, talking about our program and how we can work together, and I learned so much during that time. My fascination with sleep started then and has only continued.

[00:06:00] I left there, started my PhD. I do research now. I work with the Departments of Neurology and Endocrinology at Leiden and also Behavioral Sciences a Stanford, and then I started a public health product called Dan’s Plan which will soon be turning into Human OS. That is the idea of synthesizing all of the information out there to help people master their own health. One foot in research, one foot in health promotion.
