See #7 for this one…

The weekend is here and so are the 7 Things I Learned This Week…

Before I start, just a reminder, we’re ending the Tooth Soap and Brightener deal on Monday.

So head on over and get some awesome tooth care products AND a FREE Toothbrush.

Here’s where to go…

(Part 4 and 5 of the Perfect Teeth Protocol will come Sunday and Monday!)

On to the 7 Things…

1. My face is officially clear.

It’s been almost 6 months that my face had been clear and completely acne free.

For a few years, while I was experimenting, I ended up with some pretty wicked acne.

It was awful, embarrassing and frustrating.

I did many things and listened to many people.

Eventually, I found out what worked for me and now am thrilled it has.

The majority of acne breakouts start in two places:

Your gut and your endocrine (hormone) system.

If you can get these in check with fermented foods, eliminating any irritating foods, blood tests and balancing your hormones, I believe about 90% or so of acne will disappear.

Put me to the test and try it yourself! 🙂

2. Unbeknowst to me, I’m a tree hugging pot smoker.

A viewer wrote in VERY upset about my recommendation of marijuana for extreme pain.

She instantly assumed Annmarie and I sat around the RV with glow lamps, taking pulls from a 6 foot bong, and listening to Grateful Dead bootlegs.

She even went as far to tell us that she hopes we get arrested the next time we smoke pot.

Funny thing is this…

I haven’t smoked pot since my college days.

I don’t even drink.

If I do any partying, it almost always ends at 10:00.

The only time we’ve been up after 1:00 AM in the last 10 or so years is when we have a late flight somewhere.


Talk about slackers, huh?!

Assumptions can be silly, can’t they…

(I do like Dead bootlegs though.)

BTW: I did do one medical marijuana experiment which I’ll share with you in the upcoming weeks. It was categorically an AWFUL experience.

3. Quackwatch is NOT a credible website!

Please, please, please…

Stop sending in counter arguments to what I write that include links to

While I encourage discussion and arguments and disagreement, I don’t encourage quick web searches done under the guise of “research.”

This is NOT a credible site.

This is a site maintained by a sketchy old skeptic who thinks EVERYTHING is quack.


Green juices, massage, acupuncture, supplements of any kind, and more.

If you want to believe him, then you can.

Just don’t send me his links anymore. 😉

4. Making good food requires a plan.

I learned this from Cherie Soria this week during my interview with her…

No wonder my food is never cookbook worthy. LOL!

You can check out my interview with her on the blog and learn how to make your own recipes from a pro.

More of it will be up next week.

5. I’m a wimp.

I just did my CrossFit total for Back Squats and Shoulder Press.

I’m so far away from where I used to be.

It’s pretty humbling.

I used to be very strong and the last few years of experimenting has really taken me off my game.

My Back Squat total was a poor 225 lbs.

Shoulder press a little better at 115 lbs.

I’m using this forum for public accountability.

I will improve.

I used to rep 275 lbs. on the Back Squat!

Wimpy. LOL!

6. We need to live in a walking city.

Being in Toronto for the weekend affirmed that Ann and I need to live in a walking city.

We walked everywhere.

We did the same when we were in Cuzco.

It completely changes your experience.

Plus, it’s a great way to get in your exercise without it feeling like exercise.

How cool is that!

7. Annmarie is cute.

Just check out the picture above when she was about 5 or so.


Alright, enough for me now.

Just a reminder, the Tooth Soap and Tooth Brightener deal – get a FREE toothbrush – ends on Monday, so be sure to get it now while supplies last!

Here’s where to go…

Live Awesome!

Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.
