Here’s what you can expect from me
These days, almost every time I post something on Instagram, I lose followers. Sometimes, a hundred at a time.
I imagine that’s because the kind of ideas I’m sharing don’t match what those particular people wanted and expected from me.
Most people think of me as the guy who co-founded the Whole30 program, who created the More Social Less Media program, or who speaks and writes about health stuff like exercise and sleep and social connection.
All of that is true… but it’s only a fraction of the real story.
I don’t do what I do because I think that food (or even health, for that matter!) is the most important thing in the universe.
I only care about your nutritional status or how your circadian rhythms work or what dopamine polymorphisms you have or what kind of functional strength program you do because those are always and only opportunities to open and expand the container of your mind so that your human experience includes more love, beauty, peace, ecstasy, gentleness, and wonder.
I’m in the late stages of writing a book about the most critical health factors—food, sleep, movement, and human connection—in an integrative, rhythmic system, yes, but I don’t care about those things as ends, only as means.
Purposely creating a life that works well for you is truly the work of a lifetime, but those health choices only matter to the extent that they can “clear the fog” and open up space for you to breathe, grow, live, and love better.
So here’s my stake in the ground: better living through living better.
I hope you’ll walk this long, winding, beautiful road through life with me. 🙏🏼
