Welcome to my Weekly Roundup!
Discover the latest news from the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking and anti-aging research. I also tell you about all of my upcoming events and recap all of my special announcements–giveaways, discounts, and more.
New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I’m Trying, Books I’m Reading, And More!
– Book: You Can Be Younger by Marisa Peer. I had the pleasure of meeting Marisa at the recent A-Fest in Sardinia, Italy, and she gave me her new book to read on the long flight home. As an anti-aging enthusiast, I was intrigued by the research and practical instructions in the book for reversing aging with your mind and your subconscious. I folded over about 30 separate pages and plan to have Marisa on the podcast soon, but in the meantime: read her book if you ever find yourself struggling with thoughts about being “old” or “aging”.
– Meal Hack: Digize Essential Oil. I’ve recently been sporting a fanny pack to hold all my crazy salts, oils, tinctures and supplements that I inevitably wind up at a dinner table with. One such treasure is a tiny bottle of Digize. I rub it on my tummy and put just a few drops in a glass of pre-meal sparkling water to enhance digestion and reduce any bloating or gas. It’s a blend of peppermint, lemongrass, juniper, ginger, fennel, patchouli, tarragon and anise. Get it here.
– Fashion: Oh, and like I mentioned above, I am now on the fanny pack bandwagon. Particularly this Pacsafe Metrosafe LS120 Anti-Theft Hip Pack, recommended to me by former podcast guest Kyle Kingsbury. Inside my fanny pack are flavorings, salts, credit cards, phone charger, essential oils, bug sprays and beyond. I truly feel like Inspector Gadget.
