054 - Dr. Mike Roussell, PhD - Nutritionist and Author Glorious Professionals

    • Entrepreneurship

“My advice is to always find a way to take a good step forward.”
To kick off 2022, Dr. Mike Roussell joins Jason for Episode 054 focusing on nutrition. Dr. Mike consults on health, nutrition, and performance for a range of clientele from professional athletes, to celebrities, to Fortune 500 executives. “With a passion for nutrition rooted in sport,” he is a speaker, podcaster and author who breaks down complicated nutrition ideas and principles to easily digestible, immediately actionable steps. 
While he is a “diet agnostic” Dr Mike lays out early his six pillars of nutrition, and why he focuses on the “dos” instead of the “don’ts.” He talks about why making mental shifts -- and having supportive community -- are more critical to health and performance success than the perfect plan. He returns to a common Special Forces theme of “brilliance in the basics” and remembering you’re one meal (or even bite) away from being back on track towards your goals.
After covering the first steps and creating a foundation of nutritional health, Jason and Dr. Mike take it to a higher level of performance and cover a lot of ground from hydration, to eating to optimize recovery, his “calorie vibe” approach, rucking nutrition, the pitfalls of food marketing and the global problems in health literacy, and even the amazingness of Jason’s beloved PB&J. Throughout he advocates for “struggling through to make the new habit part of our lives.” 
Dr. Mike holds a degree in biochemistry from Hobart College and a doctorate in nutrition from Pennsylvania State University. He is well published both in academic circles and also has over 500 articles in places like Men’s Health and SHAPE magazines. He also walks the talk as a longtime athlete and weightlifter, and rucker since 2016.
