Primal Blueprint Podcast

Host Brad Kearns talks to young YouTube sensation Nathanael Morton about the benefits of integrating explosive, ballistic jumping exercises into your fitness routine and the integration of his positive energy and self-help message into his fitness videos. Nathanael offers some interesting insights about being overconfident as an athlete and then experiencing failure that forced him to recalibrate and then put in the hard work and focus necessary to be successful. 

You'll be captivated by the incredible self-imposed challenge that Nathanael completed, where he decided to run 111 miles in a single week despite not training as a runner for 10 years. The stunt was inspired by extreme athlete David Goggins and Nathanael wanted to explore his outer limits as an athlete and see what happened. Don't try this at home but take the inspirational message to heart - be willing to make the sacrifices necessary to reach the goals that you really want and believe in.

Brian is a personal trainer and scratch golfer from Chicago who has had some great success with intermittent fasting for both himself and his clients. He was initially inspired when he became frustrated by his inability to achieve the same results in the gym at age 38 as he did at 28 - imagine that! He started with the simple strategy of pushing his breakfast back an hour at a time until he was able to comfortably adjust to eating his first meal at around noon. Consequently, Brian typically ends up eating only two meals a day. Brian and Brad discuss an assortment of common sense tips to make fasting work for you, in particular: Be strict with your exercise so you don’t have decision fatigue and will power needed every day to stick with your plan; move around and keep busy during your fasting periods to make time fly by faster; clean up your diet so you can minimize glucose spikes and insulin crashes; make sure your dietary practices are a smooth fit into your busy life. 

Brian offers the memorable quote that muscles are made in the gym but that six-pack abs are made from diet. Another key benefit of adhering to some sort of fasting protocol is that you develop a greater appreciation for natural hunger and satiety sensations, and gain a greater sense of control in your life than when you have to rely on food for your energy, mood, and cognition. Enjoy numerous simple, common-sense insights that will get you psyched to try and succeed with Intermittent Fasting!
