Ben Greenfield Fitness

The world around us continually requires more of us while we give less and less thought to our long-term health. This distracted and overwhelmed mindset has landed us squarely in survival mode, depriving us of the necessary steps to create lasting, sustained energy. The truth is most of us are so exhausted and don't know how to find the energy to live our best lives.

Ben Greenfield Fitness

I'll admit that I've never been a fan of the "juicing" and "cold-pressed juice" trend. Most of these juices are full of sugar that provide very little of the actual fiber and water you'd find in whole fruit. Yet, recently, I've begun drinking actual liquid juices again, as have my wife and kids.

Listener Q&A:

Is Nut Oil & Fish Oil Oxidized, Rancid Or Bad For You?...25:22

Grace from Australia asks: I've been hearing a lot about the dangers of polyunsaturated fats lately, particularly in regards to how they oxidize easily, which could create cellular damage. Does this mean I should avoid regular consumption of nuts and fatty fish? I know that in nuts, the antioxidant properties of vitamin E could offset this oxidative damage, but vitamin E is also susceptible to light and heat.

In my response, I recommend:

Can You Get Benefits From Sunlight In The Winter?...41:00

Taylor asks: I wanted to start by saying your podcast is absolutely incredible and it has changed the way that I view health and longevity. My question for you today is regarding sunlight. I live in the Midwest and typically in late October is when the UVB starts to decline. However, I was wondering if there is still benefit to getting out in the light, even without a shirt on. I know that sounds crazy in the winter months, but please let me know what your thoughts are on this, and thank you so much.

In my response, I recommend:

Jake asks: Hey, Ben, my name is Jake and I was just wondering how you find balance. I personally struggle trying to find balance in my financial, physical, mental, and spiritual health. How do you find the time? Thanks.

In my response, I recommend:

  1. Eat the frog first, whatever that is for you
  2. Create, not consume while using screens
    • YouTube to mp3 converter app
  3. All push notifications OFF
    • Kegel camp app
  4. Only one major meal per day
  5. Batch cooking
    • PowerXL Pressure Cooker
    • Good Crockpot
    • Joule Sous Vide Wand
    • Traeger Grill
  6. Split the day in two with a nap
    • NUCalm (w/ th 30 minute reboot function)
  7. Walk a LOT (and listen to audiobooks, podcasts, etc. while walking)
  8. Always be reading/learning (Kindle WhisperSync)
  9. Evernote synced across all devices (e.g. as outlined here) - use a simple text file to capture, organize, and ultimately clarify all relevant information during administrative blocks — leaving your brain free to execute.
  10. Ruthlessly outsource
  11. Calendar every Sunday evening (Google cal or Busy cal)
  12. Be in touch with God at all times
    • Book: Practicing His Presence
  13. Accept seasons in life of harder work (e.g. 16-18 hour work days)
