Peak Human - Unbiased Nutrition Info for Optimum Health, Fitness & Living

Jun 17, 2020

Hello again beautiful people! I hope everyone is doing well. Since I can’t ask how you’re doing, I’ll just skip straight to myself. I’m getting loaded with vitamin D daily and chowing down on Nose to Tail meat like it’s my job. It actually kind of is my job. My pool and gym are back open and things are looking good from where I’m standing. I hope people listening can say the same. Let’s try to keep that attitude positive!

I’m talking to my new pal Dr. Phil Maffetone today who’s a super interesting guy with a long career doing amazing things. He first tried running his body on fat back in the 70s and has been one of the leaders in the world getting athletes fat adapted to achieve peak performance. 

During his two decades in private practice and beyond, Dr. Maffetone has been a respected pioneer in the field of complementary medicine, bringing the latest advances to health-care professionals around the world. He is an internationally recognized researcher, educator, clinician and author in the field of nutrition, exercise and sports medicine, and biofeedback.

He’s worked with athletes in almost every sport at the highest levels including professional and olympic athletes.

Dr. Maffetone’s research has been reported in newspapers, magazines and other media around the world, including Huffington Post, The Today Show, Men’s Health, CNN, Readers Digest and The Atlantic magazine. He’s also published over 20 books since 1980. I think I’m just going to stop with his achievements already and get on to a few quick announcements. 

We’re finally officially launching the Sapien Program for those who want to seriously improve their health with a physician supervised program, our video series, and other written and visual materials. We also are offering personalized health coaching to guide you through and keep you accountable. If you're not ready for all that you can grab our free Sapien Food Guide at 

And if you're already on the right track you can join the Sapien Tribe to connect with us on a deeper level and get bonus content, extra resources, our private weekly Zoom meetings with Dr. Gary and others, and our private members area. This is all just getting going and we’re getting a lot of sign ups to the special limited lifetime membership at a deep discount. Find out about all of this at

Otherwise just share this podcast with a friend, go back and listen to the great episodes all the way back to #1, review it on the podcast app or itunes, and don’t forget about we’re shipping grass finished meat out weekly from our small ranch in Texas. I’ve been eating the primal ground beef with all the organs mixed in a lot lately and now regular ground beef tastes watered down. You gotta check it out.

Well that’s it so now it’s time for my interview with Dr. Phil Maffetone which I really enjoyed. We had such a good time we went for over 2 hours and then recorded even more bonus content for the Sapien Tribe members at the end. So much great info in this one - please enjoy!
