#30 Steven Sashen on Running Barefoot
1 hr 7 min
25% of the bones and joints in your entire body are located in your feet and ankles. Also, you have over 200,000 nerve endings on the sole of each foot. So why are we covering up these sensory powerhouses with padding and cushioning? Walking around or even running barefoot, or with footwear designed to let the feet be feet, can improve our overall physical health in ways we never imagined.WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW.On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too.Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. So, if you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you.Steven Sashen dives into things feet first.In fact, it’s his company motto. Xero Shoes was built out of a need for Steven to free his feet. After picking up sprinting again following a 30 year hiatus, Steven would injure himself constantly. Every couple of weeks would bring another pulled muscle or ankle strain. When a friend suggested a barefoot run, everything changed.After his first run with a barefoot running group, Steven was awakened with a new awareness of how his feet interacted with the ground. He ran 5K on that very first go around and was shocked at how easy it felt on his body. He was even able to pinpoint a reason for why he was injuring one leg more than the other. All this knowledge was too empowering to ignore, and Xero Shoes was born.In this conversation, Steven and I get into how incredibly powerful and intuitive our feet really are. We explore the foot to brain connection and how the modern day athletic shoe is counterproductive to the way we physically interact with the ground under our feet. Steven gives us the origin story of Xero Shoes, which gives you an understanding of why I refer to him as a “Master of Movement”. So kick off your shoes, and take a listen to this one, guys!Other topics in this episode:Steven’s history with movementHow to recognize  “Big Shoe” propagandaHow Steven’s research background at Duke helped fuel Xero ShoesThe lies we’ve been fed about our feetHow watching a child run barefoot can give you better idea of how the body is supposed to workThe truth about your archThe copycat nature of the athletic shoe industryDr. Irene Davis and her contribution to barefoot runningBalance and the elderlyHow tricking your brain can keep you youngSteven and Lena’s Shark Tank experience with Mr.Wonderful To register for We Are Podcast, go to WeArePodcast.com/darin.

Stan Efferding on Fixing Digestive Issues and Optimizing Your Gut
If you’re a regular here, you know the importance of diet. Macros for body composition, micros for general health, fiber and protein for satiety, yadda yadda yadda . . . But many people forget all about their gut and their diet’s role in gut health. Many people quietly (or loudly . . .) suffer from gastric distress without a clear path to fix their digestive issues. Many people don’t even draw the connection between their digestive system’s performance and their health. The two are tightly intertwined. Scientists have discovered that a healthy bacterial habitat in the gut (microbiome) is a crucial defense against many gastrointestinal diseases, such as inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) and disease (IBD), as well as mood disorder, brain dysfunction, stress, anxiety, depression, and even autism. So, it’s not a stretch to say that the state of your gut will determine much of the quality of your life. In this episode, I chat with Stan Efferding all about optimizing gut health through dietary tweaks to alleviate gastric distress and improve health and performance. In case you’re not familiar with Stan, he’s held two all-time raw world powerlifting records and is colloquially known as the “world's strongest bodybuilder.” He’s not all brawn, though. He’s also an entrepreneur who’s built multiple multi-million dollar businesses, including his own Vertical Diet program and meal prep service. In our conversation, Stan and I discuss . . . * The benefits of a low-FODMAP diet * Why fermented foods are easier to digest * Collagen protein versus bone broth * Meal prep services and the “vertical diet” * The relation of bowel movements to digestive health * His diet compliance hacks * Why red meat rocks and shouldn’t be eliminated * The importance of carbs for performance and why you shouldn’t go keto * And more . . . So, if you want to learn how you can tweak your diet to improve your digestive health, give this podcast a listen! 6:13 - Can you go into detail about your meal prep company? 8:54 - What is a low-FODMAP diet? 26:39 - Whats the name of your meal prep company? 28:55 - Why do you use bone broth? 35:05 - Whats the connection between how you poop and how healthy you eat? 38:05 - Why is greek yogurt easily digestible? 55:59 - What are some of your diet compliance strategies or tips and tricks? 1:19:21 - Where can people find you and your work?

FHP S2: E45 - Validating Our Own EXCUSES
Change requires change no matter how you look at it And often the changes we need the most? Well they're uncomfortable. Changes that make us uncomfortable don't feel sustainable. They feel so against everything we've been doing we find excuses not to make them. We even find ways to try to VALIDATE not doing them. We waste time putting up more mental barriers against the changes instead of just trying them, truly testing the changes by committing to them 100%, and seeing it as an experiment to gain a better understanding of our body. Often those uncomfortable changes are necessary to achieve a new and better result. Often those changes we least want to make, are the ones we need the most. And once we actually mentally GET ON BOARD with the changes? Once we stop trying to find reasons NOT to do it? Well we realize it isn't actually that hard after all. That NEW becomes habit. And amazingly sometimes we even think after awhile, "How was I not doing this before?! It is in our nature not to want to change. Change is uncomfortable. And we don't really like being uncomfortable. Plus, with change there is a fear of failure. That's why it's key we ADMIT why we truly don't want to make the change. We lower those mental barriers by RECOGNIZING them. We need to say to ourselves, "Ok I know this is going to be uncomfortable. I know I won't like it to start BUT I've got to take this risk and LEARN if I want a better outcome." By recognizing what holds us back from at least TRYING something new, we can then better move forward and commit 100% to the plan. Because if you don't test something new? If you keep doing what you've always done? You can't keep expecting things to turn out better. STOP trapping yourself in a hamster wheel working really hard without getting anywhere. You have the power at any time to step off that wheel by making an uncomfortable change. And once you do? You'll be amazed often how much BETTER things are and how that new lifestyle builds into something sustainable. We just often have to be willing to dive in and trust the process! * Recognize why you are resistant to the change. And remind yourself that change requires change. * Choose to recognize it as an experiment. * Don’t shut yourself in a bubble. Be willing to see the other side. * Recognize that you truly need to give something your 100% effort to know if it will or won’t work.

374 Roger Nygard | The Truth About Marriage: What Makes Happy Relationships Work & How To Find A Soulmate
"Soulmates are a problematic concept. You have to lower your expectations a little bit because society has given us all these expectations of what the perfect partner is like which are impossible for anyone to meet. It's better to find someone that you can both grow into soulmates over time and look at them from that perspective. Search for someone that you can finally be yourself around without any fear, retribution, or shame. Someone who celebrates who you are is going to want to be with you and you're going to want to be with them." - Roger Nygard Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.
