I used to be extremely, painfully shy.
So shy in fact, that I would literally hide in my bedroom when we had visitors to the house, and my parents were forced to coax me away from my fantasy  novels to merely come out and make brief eye contact with our visitors…
…before I disappeared back into my bedroom to go back to my novel.
As you learn in my new book, I also thrived on hamburgers and pizza – and my version of a salad was iceberg lettuce drenched in ranch dressing.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of getting your blood tested, even if it’s just once a year.
After all, if you don’t know what’s going on inside your body, you have no clue how your foods, supplements, exercise or anythingelse you’re doing for your health is truly affecting you, your heart, your gut, or your hormones.
But until the past few years, accurate blood testing was only something the “elite rich” in America could get (lucky folks!) by spending 10,000 dollars or more, plus an airplane ticket, a posh hotel room, and lots and lots of time spent sitting in a doctor’s office.
However, with new technology, you can get these same fancy tests,without forking over tons of cash or visiting some fancy longevity institute.
Seriously.

Author, fighter and family man Mark Tullius (pictured sparring above) first appeared on this site a few weeks ago in the article “Endurance Sports, MMA and Extreme Exercise – Are They Worth the Risks?“
Mark describes himself like this:
“I’m a father and a husband, a brother and a son. I’m an Ivy League grad who worked in a warehouse, an MMA fighter with too many defeats. I’m the bouncer and bodyguard, the drunk guy in the fight. The jailer and the jailed, the guilty and innocent.
I’m a writer shaped by influences, too many to count. I grew up on King and Koontz while force-fed the Bible. I narrate Dr. Seuss and Disney nearly every night. Like you, I’ve seen things I wished I hadn’t, heard some truths I won’t forget.

I don’t think it’s any secret that often have a giant, fat-filled, “ketogenic kale shake” for breakfast…
…and sometimes not just for breakfast, but multiple times during the day, especially on busy days. Heck, there’s been occasional days where I have had a shake for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
You’ll need a powerful blender for this one. Take a couple large handfuls of kale (preferably dinosaur kale that’s been lightly steamed and drained), and toss the kale into the blender. Then add a handful of raw almonds, 3-5 raw brazil nuts (purchased in the shell, like this), 1/2-1 avocado, a teaspoon cinnamon, 1-2 tablespoons dark chocolate powder and 4-6oz full fat coconut milk (preferably the BPA free variety like this).

2 years ago, I decided I was fed up with supplements.
Just freakin’ tired of all the tablets, capsules, pills, powders and oils. And bottles. Lots and lots of plastic bottles scattered everywhere.
I distinctly remember the day I finally decided something needed to change. It was when I swung open the door of my refrigerator to dive into my daily regimen of vitamins, antioxidants, nutrients, micronutrients, fish oils…
…and I realized it was getting overwhelming. Sure, it was better living through science, but it was anything but simple.
I’m sure you’ve experienced the same thing.
You open what seems like nearly a dozen different bottles to launch into your morning supplement regimen….

You spend countless hours training, working out, eating right and buffeting your body…
…and hundreds or even thousands of dollars on gym equipment, training equipment, health supplements, healthy food, and if you’re a triathlete, marathoner, cyclist, adventure racer, obstacle racer or anything like that, travel and race entry fees too…
…but if you’re overlooking your hormone health, you’re often either taking two steps forward and one step back, or stagnating in your performance and fitness, or worse yet, backsliding in your results!
Go take a look at the results from your last workout or event.
