Cool New Way To Easily Stay On Top Of The Latest Exercise & Nutrition Research
If you’re like most people, you have a number of health concerns and goals…
- You may want to build muscle while also dealing with diabetes…
- You may suffer from back pain while wanting to improve your memory…
- You could even be fighting multiple health issues—like cancer and heart disease—while trying to bring up your testosterone levels…
…and if you’re a health professional, you not only have your own goals to pursue but also your patients’ and clients’. Even if you’re not a health professional, you likely have friends and family who rely on you for health advice.
The good news: This is a golden age of research, with thousands of studies published each month on a wide variety of nutritional topics.
The bad news: No individual can possibly filter and review all those studies to determine which are the most important for your goals.
Understanding the latest nutrition research gives you an extra boost toward your health goals—and, if you have clients, puts you ahead of the competition. But how do you distinguish the signal from the noise?
Enter Examine Personalized. I've always been a fan of the good folks over at Examine, but they've really knocked it out of the ballpark with this latest service, which I've been beta-testing for the past couple months and have been very impressed with. Why do I like these folks so much? Examine.com is 100% independent—they sell no supplements, offer no consulting, and have no ads; all they do is analyze and make sense of scientific research. Founded in 2011, Examine is an education company with over 45,000 customers who rely on their unbiased examination of nutrition and supplement research. I've personally been a subscriber to their journal for the past seven years, and it has saved me tons of research time and expanded by leaps and bounds my ability to be able to research nutrition and exercise content quickly.
With their new Examine Personalized, you’ll get monthly updates on the nutrition research that matters to you. Here's how it works:
- You select the health topics you want to stay current on…
- They comb through hundreds of new studies in each of those areas…
- They then review and summarize the most important research…
- You get a detailed monthly report so you’re always on the cutting edge…
Check out the video below to see how it works:
Click here to sign up for Examine Personalized at what I would consider to be a steal: $9 a month. Or, you can prepay for the entire year and save even more ($6.25/mo). For the best deal yet, a one-time payment of $299 (normally $399) gets you lifetime access. Enjoy! I can pretty much guarantee this is going to save you tons of time and make you a very, very smart cookie. OK, maybe one of those gluten-free, low-carb, keto superfood cookies.

::: Get 25% OFF A Case Of Ultra-Hydrating HALO Hydration Drink :::
If you listened to my podcast “Quench: The Big “8 Glasses Of Day” Water Myth, Why Water Isn’t The Best Way To Fully Hydrate & Much More!” then you know that water is, surprisingly, not the best way to hydrate.
It's true. Foods that contain “gel water” are far more hydrating than plain ole H2O. But, if chomping on cucumbers all day or sinking your teeth into a fresh aloe leaf after a grueling workout in the summer sun doesn't sound appealing to you, then allow me to introduce you to something far more practical:
Not only is HALO proven to hydrate more efficiently than water, but it is the only electrolyte drink that contains over 70 mg of natural magnesium, a powerful immune booster. HALO is also…
- Fueled with organic lemon juice as a base and has only 10 calories and 2 grams of sugar in the entire bottle…
- PACKED with electrolytes (70mg of natural magnesium, which helps boost immunity and helps the body fight stress, sea salt and other natural electrolytes to help the body stay hydrated, potassium to help muscle fatigue, plus antioxidants to help fight free radicals)…
- Certified organic, keto-friendly, vegan, paleo, non-GMO, kosher, and gluten-free…
- One of the tastiest and most refreshing ways to hydrate with a flavor for every palate—such as peach, black cherry, tangerine, pineapple, lemon, blood orange, lime, and pink lemonade…

Put your cooking chops into overdrive with these reverse seared Hawaiian barbecue pork chops. These meaty, bone-in chops get the famous Traeger reverse sear for serious smokin’ flavor. These are, bar none, some of the fattiest, richest pork chops I've ever sunk my teeth into, courtesy @belcampomeatco (use code GREENFIELD10 at BenGreenfieldFitness.com/Belcampo. INGREDIENTS: 4 bone-in pork chops Rub: cayenne, black salt, black pepper 2 Tablespoon butter 2 Sprig thyme 1 Sprig rosemary STEPS 1. When ready to cook, set @traegergrills temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. 2. Season the pork chops liberally with rub and brush with @primalkitchenfoods Hawaiian BBQ sauce. 3. Place directly on the grill grate and smoke for 60 minutes at 155F 4. Remove chops from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes. 5. Increase the grill temperature to 500°F and place a cast iron pan directly on the grill grate to preheat for about 10 minutes while the pork chops are resting. 6. Place the butter and herb sprigs in the cast iron pan. When the butter is hot, place the pork chops in the pan. Sear on both sides for 3 to 4 minutes or until the exterior is browned and the internal temperature registers 140℉ in the thickest part of the chop. 7. Remove chops from pan and let rest 5 minutes; the internal temperature will rise to a finished temperature of 145℉. We punish these with a side of baked carrots, barbecued pineapple and a nice glass of bourbon on the rocks!
