Hey everyone out there in quarantine land, how’s everyone doing? Hopefully you’re holding strong and eating nutrient dense Sapien foods instead of ordering takeout. And going for walks in the sun and doing workouts in your living room. This is exactly what I’ve been doing and have been feeling better than ever.


I talked to Dr. Sean O'mara about so many interesting things during this interview we decided to cut it off and do another in the near future. We ended up not doing this immediately so please reach out to me on social media and let me know what questions or other topics you’d like us to address when we do our follow-up episode.


His work with measuring visceral fat with MRI is so important. This is such a huge thing that people are missing, even in the health community. It’s a relatively new concept and technology and is pretty costly, so it makes sense. But this is one of the huge ways to not only prove a calorie is not a calorie, but also really see someone’s true health status.


I won’t go on because there’s too many interesting things to bring up - better to just listen to the episode. Dr. Sean is very in tune with everything I’ve learned over the past 5 years and I hope to work with him in the future and get him into the Sapien organization.


Here are a few updates before we begin. http://NoseToTail.org is in high demand right now and we don’t have a ton of inventory, so jump on it while you can. You can still order this week if you're close to our ranch in Texas. If not, check the site over the weekend and get your order in so we can ship it Monday. Our most popular product is the primal and primal lite ground beef that has liver, kidney, heart, and spleen mixed in for the most nutritious burger patty in the game. We also have pork and chicken that is fed a special diet to make their meat ultra high in omega 3 compared to omega 6. As you've been learning through all these great experts on this podcast, a high ratio of omega 6 in your diet and all these pufas that are so ubiquitous these days is one of the biggest factors in chronic disease. So get the good stuff delivered straight to your door at http://NoseToTail.org

Other than that you can share with a friend, give it a review on the podcast app or iTunes, and make sure to start back at episode 1. It really makes me happy to hear people’s stories of starting from the beginning and learning more than most doctors and nutritionists know by the end. Especially when they implement it into their lives and have universally great results. How could you not? We’re talking about a Spaien diet here. This is how humans should eat.
