Get Started

These are the resources that help me the most and those I recommend to Get Started on living a healthy lifestyle. You can access additional resources through the Blog, Instagram & Twitter feeds, and the pages via the Menu tabs on Nutrition, Performance, and Mind.

  1. Download the app or listen to The Rich Roll Podcast online – wealth of long form conversations with leaders in health, fitness, nutrition, art, entertainment, entrepreneurship & spirituality. This is the resource that has changed my life in the most significant manner. Also check out my previous blog, Why you should know Rich Roll, and my favorite Rich Roll Podcast episodes.
  2. Watch Forks over Knives. The film examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. The film is currently on Netflix. You can also access great recipes and register for regular emails from their website.
  3. Watch What the Health. Great film from the creators of Cowspiracy. It exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick. The film is currently on Netflix.
  4. Bookmark nutritionfacts.org and watch Dr. Michael Greger’s Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death. Dr. Greger’s website is a strictly non-commercial, science-based public service providing free updates on the latest in nutrition research via bite-sized videos. Dr. Greger’s video and Forks over Knives were the first two videos I watched and I was shocked I/we do not get educated about these facts anywhere. When you are done with this, I have a page devoted to my favorite Dr. Greger resources.
  5. Watch the video from Dr. Neal Barnard, What the Dairy Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know. Dr. Barnard established the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to promote preventive medicine, conduct clinical research, and advocate for higher ethical standards in research. His credentials are endless and you will hear these in the introduction. Subscribe to his YouTube channel…great content.
  6. Use YouTube!!! I continue to find things that lead to something else and then to something else and then to something else….. I then Subscribe to pages I really like. Some of the pages I subscribe to include:
