If you have followed me for any amount of time, you have likely heard me say action cures all. Since starting Healthy Theory, I have interviewed over 90 specialists and experts about everything from brain cognition, to gut microbiome, to reverse aging. Information is meant to be put into action, so today I am sharing with you what my daily routine consists of at the moment. Goals are important and should always be considered when choosing what is best for you. This is not advice for anyone, just a look at how I’ve applied the plethora of expert advice I’ve received over the past few years. This episode is Health Theory In Action with my own routine:
Key Points to My Routine:
1. Exercise and Meditation are a must.
2. Diet is critical for health. I keep it simple with meat, eggs, and veggies.
3. Learn what works best for your body and act in accordance.

“If you haven't at least explored that getting strong is the answer to your pain, that working out even though it seems like the riskiest thing you can do is actually the thing that's going to solve your problem, then you haven't even begun to explore potential remedies.” [3:02]
