    Cookie Farts, Sex For Exercise, New Biohacks, Pre-Workout Stacks, Morning Vs. Evening Workouts, Calorie Counting & More With Max Lugavere & Crosby Tailor.

    BenGreenfieldFitness.com/threeway
     On a recent trip to LA, I had a chance to sit down with my friends Max Lugavere and Crosby Tailor for an absolute geekfest jam packed with our top of tools, tactics, tips and nutrition/training/life/spiritual/relationship "hacks" of late, recorded as sort of a roundtable, each of us going one at a time, with plenty o' "rabbit holing" as we talk through all of our latest self-optimization strategies.
    So who are these guys?
    Crosby Tailor is a represented fashion model and graduated college football athlete turned biohacker and sugar-free dessert chef. Crosby believes that everyone is different, and therefore, not just one diet or lifestyle will work for the majority. Crosby has tried every diet fad from going vegan, the body ecology diet, hardcore paleo, the alkaline diet, as well as super high fat ketogenic, and never felt completely balanced or satisfied, but there were things he absolutely loved from each lifestyle.
    So he decided to take bits of information that upgraded his life, from each of his favorite wellness mentors like Dave Asprey, Mark Sisson, David Wolfe, Charles Poliquin, Dr. Axe, Dr. Adamo, among many more, and specifically “Tailor” his lifestyle with what resonated best to increase his overall vibration and quality of living. He realized that nothing will ever be perfect, and that its about playing the best hand possible from the cards we were given, accepting what is, and celebrating how different we all really are.
    This would have never been possible if he didn’t learn to intuit what he needed, explore the proper research, and embark upon a trial and error period of learning what worked for him and what didn’t, in order to further the positive development of his mind, body, and soul. Crosby is not a doctor, nor is he here to make certain health claims, but instead share information that he has gathered over time, that might help you make your own best decisions for self improvement.
    Crosby is also the creator behind Crosby’s Cookies, “Eat Dessert Burn Fat,” a sugar, gluten, and grain free dessert company born from a labor of love. He hacked the dessert world and has come up with hundreds of recipes from cookies, cupcakes, donuts, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, ice creams, and chocolates! Every recipe is boosted with superfoods and beneficial ingredients that serve a purpose for your health. Crosby hopes to take you back to the inherent pleasures that abounded before refined sugar took over.
    Max Lugavere is a filmmaker, health and science journalist and the author of the New York Times best-seller Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life, published in 8 languages around the globe. He is also the host of the #1 iTunes health podcast The Genius Life.
    Lugavere appears regularly on the Dr. Oz Show, the Rachael Ray Show, and The Doctors. He has contributed to Medscape, Vice, Fast Company, CNN, and the Daily Beast, has been featured on NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, and in The New York Times and People Magazine.
    He is an internationally sought-after speaker and has given talks at South by Southwest, TEDx, the New York Academy of Sciences, the Biohacker Summit in Stockholm, Sweden, and many others. From 2005-2011, Lugavere was a journalist for Al Gore’s Current TV.

    Why The Way You Think About Time Might Be Wrong, Hacking Your Subconscious, The Perfect Morning Energy Routine & More: Reality Revolution With Brian Scott

    BenGreenfieldFitness.com/realityrevolution
    I recently read a book called The Reality Revolution: The Mind-Blowing Movement to Hack Your Reality.
    It was really good.
    Specifically, it did a great job "mashing up" in one title a ton of the energy flow and body enhancement routines, subconscious reprogramming, meditation and visualization tactics and much more in a very practical and easy to understand way, written and explained by someone who has obviously done this stuff for a long time.
    The author's name is Brian Scott, and he's my guest on today's podcast.
    Brian is an author, motivational speaker, thought leader, life coach, transformation coach, influencer, podcast host for the reality revolution podcast and the laptop lifestyle podcast, and he is also an artist.
    He has studied and worked on consciousness expansion for over 20 years. His primary goal is to find that spark to and unleash your greatest potential.
    Brian helps people overcome obstacles, unlock abundance, improve their health and improve their relationships. He incorporates basic to advanced strategies and technologies such as meditation, hypnosis, qi gong, reality transurfing, sensory deprivation, virtual reality, mind tech, quantum jumping, reality shifting, yoga, energy psychology, luck coaching, NLP, Silva Mind Control, and biohacking. After walking away unscathed from a near-fatal shooting in his home, Brian began a fanatical search for answers.
    He deepened his research into parallel realities, quantum mechanics, and consciousness to uncover what happened in his close call with death.
    Along the way, he developed a series of techniques capable of creating profound transformations.
    In The Reality Revolution: The Mind-Blowing Movement to Hack Your Reality, Brian introduces you to the techniques that have helped his clients find lasting love, create wealth, and revitalize health.
    You’ll learn how to surf through parallel realities and unlock the power of your mind through a mix of researched and science-backed techniques like qi gong, meditation, quantum jumping, energy work, and reality transsurfing. If you’re ready to create an incredible reality for yourself, this book shows you the way, and we have a great discussion about it on today's show.
    During our discussion, you'll discover: -How Brian's name change created an identity transformation...09:45 -How a near death experience led Brian toward his journey...12:11 -The big mistake people make about time...18:20 -Is intuition your future self talking back to you?...27:20 -Why slackers always get lucky...30:00 -Using anchoring to change your reality...38:50 -EcoMeditation...43:50 -Brian's energy flow manipulation routine...46:00 -The 5 Tibetan Rites...49:25 -Intention setting and your Reticular Activating System...1:00:00 -Brian's downloadable meditations...1:06:45 Episode sponsors: -The Boundless Cookbook

    The Renegade Breathing Mastermind Behind The Crazy Holotropic Breathing Protocol I Do In My Sauna (& Biohacking Breathwork, Best Foods For Breathhold Time, Dangers Of Wim Hof & Much More!).

    The Renegade Breathing Mastermind Behind The Crazy Holotropic Breathing Protocol I Do In My Sauna (& Biohacking Breathwork, Best Foods For Breathhold Time, Dangers Of Wim Hof & Much More!).

    BenGreenfieldFitness.com/niraj2
    I met my friend Niraj Naik (the same guy who invented the crazy holotropic-style breathwork protocol I do in my sauna) inside a sauna in Estonia, Finland, where he led me and one of my buddies through an "omming" breathwork protocol, and I've been hooked on him as my "go to guy" for breath work ever since.
    He joined me first on the podcast "The Renegade Pharmacist: How To Increase The Effects Of Psilocybin, The Secrets Of Colostrum, Fixing Constipation With Breathwork & More" and also invented the breath work routine that I took my boys and I through and detail in the article "How To Blast You (And Your Child's!) Physical, Mental, & Spiritual Resilience Through The Roof With Breathwork". He also recently designed an extraordinary 8 day breath work course called "SOMABreathFit" that my boys and I also just did - a course that combines fitness, sleep protocols, meditation protocols and much more in a simple-to-implement, done-for-you short daily program. 
    Niraj comes from a background of working long hours for several years as a community pharmacist. Becoming a certified “legal drug dealer” at the ripe age of 24, he got to witness first-hand, many clients going home with shopping bags full of drugs each month, rarely getting better and usually going on to suffer from other diseases.
    He also learned of the debilitating side effects of the prescription medications which drove many of the patients to have to take more and more drugs to ease the side effects. Curious to find ways to improve his own health, he attended several health seminars and discovered an in-depth approach on how to reach optimum health and vitality by understanding the true origin of disease and how to prevent it.
    After experiencing great benefits with his own health, Niraj was motivated to devise a scheme to see if he could also help his suffering patients. He incorporates a lifestyle plan called his "healthy shopping lists" that includes simple food swaps, tools and websites to support their specific conditions.
    Within two weeks he received testimonials from patients who were starting to get better and within a few months some being able to lower their dosages or completely come off their medications. After an arduous battle trying to get his novel approach accepted into the mainstream that resulted in a lot of stress and disillusionment, in 2010 he was diagnosed with a stress-related illness, ulcerative colitis, that left him housebound for over 10 months.
    He was told by doctors and nurses there existed no cure and he would need to be on medication for the rest of his life. Like his patients, Niraj suffered from side effects of his medication to the point he felt completely hopeless and even suicidal. He was then left with a choice that would be a major turning point in his life. Test out a new drug or have his colon removed. He decided to choose option 3, a path not yet known by conventional medicine. So began his search to learn from people who had great success with either curing themselves or others from chronic illness.
    He learned a combination of natural treatments including Ayurvedic practices and dietary recommendations from Paleo and Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). He studied healing methods through meditation, yoga and mind power techniques like self-hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). He even discovered the powerful techniques of sound and music therapy as tools for reducing stress and promoting self-healing. Niraj finally broke free from the burdens of his illness, without medication. The experience of illness has allowed him to completely re
    invent his life and discover a new passion for helping others to do the same. His specialty is helping people recover, prevent or reduce the dependency for longterm medication for the metabolic diseases of diabetes, heart disease and obesity as
