103: A Practical Approach to Improving Your Health | Ben Greenfield

You’re busy. I’m busy. We’ve got so much going on. And, if you’re anything like me, it seems that taking care of my health is the easiest thing to get pushed to the back-burner.

My guest today, New York Times Best Selling Author Ben Greenfield, shares with us how to carve out the time for our health, what key metrics we should be tracking, a powerful mindset each of us can implement, and how to take a more practical approach to controlling your health.

Gentlemen, I’m stoked to introduce my guest to you today, Mr. Ben Greenfield.

Ben is a beast when it comes to the physical events that he’s participated in. I ran across him and his work as I’ve done my own obstacle course and endurance event and I can tell you that this is a man who puts his money where his mouth is.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author but, as you’ll hear in this interview he’s also someone who’s willing to do as much as he talks about others doing.

He considers himself to be a Guinea Pig when it comes to health, nutrition, sleep, and fitness – you’ll hear about some of his experimentations in this conversation. And, he takes an extremely practical approach to staying on top of his health goals – in fact, he was walking on a treadmill while we held this conversation.
