Just to remind everyone, I don’t have any sponsors. So far I’ve turned them all down so I can remain independent from any outside interests. I have my own beneficial products and services we offer at Http:// and to support the show, the film, myself, and my great team. I make a lot less money this way, but it’s a lot more satisfying to not have to rely on anyone else or promote any other products.

However, it only works if people support Sapien and Nose to Tail. Luckily we have amazing things to offer. Sapien is the health platform I’ve built with my business partner Dr. Gary. We have a practice in Woodland Hills, CA as well as an online program anyone in the world can join if they’re serious about weight loss and disease reversal using diet and lifestyle. You can find out more about the program at You can also get the free Sapien Food guide there.

Another thing we’ve got going is the Sapien Tribe. We have a growing community of people who are living this lifestyle and dominating life. I know that sounds pretty bro-ey, but it’s what is happening. People have gone from a life of mediocrity or even ill-health to being in top shape, reversing their chronic disease, having great body composition, and not getting sick anymore! Tribe members also get all the extras like the bonus episodes of this podcast, the extended show notes, the private members area, and special access and live Zoom calls with Dr. Gary and me. You can find that at as well.

You can also get the Nose to Tail meats at where we ship grass finished, ethically and sustainably raised beef, buffalo, pork, and chicken to your door. It’s all raised in Texas and ships out each week to the 48 contiguous states. Our specialty products include ground beef with liver, heart, kidney, and spleen mixed in. I don’t know of anyone else getting all these organs mixed in like we do. I think it’s the best and tastiest way to eat the fresh organs to get the ultimate in nutrient dense, bioavailable nutrition. We also have high omega 3, low omega 6 pork and chicken. We feed them a special gluten free, non-GMO feed that makes their meat and fat very low in PUFAs. I can go on forever about how great this stuff is, but just check it out for yourself at
