AWE Episode Mark Sisson

In our last episode we focused on 2018 goal setting. Considering that health- and fitness-related goals account for nearly half of all New Year’s resolutions, there’s a good chance that a many of you are currently engaged in the noble struggle of eating healthier, getting active, or just dropping a few lbs.

Of course,  New Year’s resolutions are notoriously hard to keep. In fact, 92% of New Year’s resolutions end in failure.

What differentiates the successful 8% from the rest? Knowledge and a game plan, for starters.

In that spirit, this week we have a presentation from Mark Sisson that’s all about helping you achieve your health, fitness, and nutrition goals. 

Mark is basically THE guy when it comes to understanding Ketogenic diets. He’s a former endurance athlete turned health and fitness expert and a New York Times bestselling author of the books The Keto Reset Diet and Primal Blueprint.

Mark has a unique ability to make Keto accessible, and in this talk provides ideas and strategies to up your health and wellness game in 2018.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The concept of metabolic flexibility, and why it’s the lynchpin of health, performance and longevity.
  • The definition of ketonic, and the benefits of training your body to metabolize ketones.
  • The evolutionary science that explains our metabolic processes – and why they’re not as useful for us as they were for our ancestors.
  • Some specific tips for living a more Keto-friendly lifestyle (without going full Keto).
