My friend Tai Lopez is a very interesting guy.
Tai is a true renaissance man.
Tai (pictured right) went from being a college dropout living with the Amish and working on Joel Salatin’s farm (which we talk about in this podcast episode) to becoming a self made millionaire before the age of 30, while launching 12 multi-million dollar businesses in the process.
He is a member of MENSA: the high IQ society, a Certified Financial Planner, Chartered Financial Consultant, Chartered Life Underwriter, and most importantly a student of life with a ton of books (5000 plus at the last count).

Perhaps you’ve decided that you’re simply tired of sickeningly sweet sports gels.
Maybe it’s the candy-like taste.
Maybe it’s having your brain wired on a potent combination of caffeine and sugar for hours after your workout or race.
Maybe it’s knowing that every time you dump boatloads of sugar into your body, even during the relatively insulin-sensitive state of exercise, you can still rip yourself out of fat oxidation. 
Maybe it’s all the damaging and deleterious health effects of chronic blood sugar surges that you just learned about in my last article “Rewriting The Fat Burning Textbook: Why You’ve Been Lied To About Carbs And How To Turn Yourself Into A Fat Burning Machine.

Meet Brian Johnson.
Brian Johnson is the Philosopher & CEO of en*theos - a company that Brian describes as “creating cool stuff to help people optimize their lives”.
I first met Brian two years ago through my .mp3 player – where I listened to him walk me through 100 of the greatest personal growth books – in about 20 minutes per book, via “The Philosopher’s Notes“.
Later, Brian and I connected through random chance when I helped him and his wife interpret their WellnessFX blood testing results, and then I began online coaching Brian for muscle gain and fat loss.
As I grew to know Brian, I realized that he has an incredible story, in which he has combined fitness, health, happiness and business success into a very cool package.

Going “gluten-free” is all the rage these days as evidenced by an increasing number of products available on grocery store shelves and restaurant menus.  If we are to believe the hype, a gluten-free diet is healthier for you and may serve to improve a wide variety of symptoms.  In fact, people who have sensitivities to gluten do benefit by eliminating all sources of gluten from their diet.  However, this is a huge undertaking which requires constant vigilance and commitment.  
What is gluten?
Gluten is a type of protein found in wheat (including spelt, couscous, semolina, kamut, farro, and bulgur) and other grains such as barley, rye and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye).  Gluten is not found in other grains, such as rice, corn, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, millet, sorghum, teff, and oats (unless contaminated with wheat during processing).

You may have been hearing a lot lately about something called “Ayahuasca”.
From the movie “Wanderlust“, in which Jennifer Aniston tips back a cup of ayahuasca, to bodybuilder and six-time Mr. Olympia winner Dorian Yates lauding it’s benefits, it seems that this drink seems to be appearing everywhere.
But what is ayahuasca?
Is it safe? Is it legal? Does it enhance physical or mental performance?
How do you feel when you use it?
Does it mess up things like muscle gain or fat loss?
How is it different than other adaptogens?
Is it addictive?
You’ll find out the answer to these questions about ayahuasca and much more in this Premium podcast episode with Superhuman Certified Coach Stephanie Holbrook.

In Rewriting The Fat Burning Textbook – Part 1 you discovered how eating a high fat diet doesn’t make you fat, and may actually increase the amount of fat you burn as fuel at both rest and during exercise, allow you to exercise or function for longer periods of time while eating relatively few calories, massively improve your health and not limit performance in the least.
But much of that information is theoretical, and not grounded in hard, sweaty numbers. Sure, there are videos such as this that suggest high-fat diets and ketosis-adapted performance can aid with things such as fat loss and high-altitude resilience, but there is scant data related to the pointy end of human performance potential.

Lying facedown on a cold, vinyl-plastered laboratory bench, I grimaced and squirmed uncomfortably as a medical technician yanked a giant biopsy needle out of my right quad – sucking nearly 200 milligrams of my precious muscle fibers out of my leg. 
I knew my left quad and both butt cheeks were next in line to get more of my living tissue brutally extracted, so I braced myself and prepared for the next sharp needle jab.
