    #394: How to Boost Your Immune System, Dominate Your Days & Live Your Dream Life

    I was a sickly kid. Couldn’t go longer than 6 weeks without coming down with something and missing a few days of school. That lasted until my early 30’s. It was then that I decided to do a decade-long-deep-dive on learning everything possible about bulletproofing your immune system. 
    I couldn’t take being sick anymore. I wanted to be in full control of my immune system and finally experience true, radiant health. 
    In this episode I’m sharing all of that… and how, like a big dummy, I completely ignored those strategies on a recent 4 day bender that ended with me giving myself Covid. 
    Topics Discussed:
    How does training impact your immune system? What kind of diet should you follow to stay healthy? What are the most important foods to eat? What one food immediately suppresses your immune system?  Is intermittent fasting going to help or hurt? The # 1 way to boost your immune system overnight. Can cardio actually make you sicker?  Can you get sick just by being around someone who's sick? 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut. Do this to optimize it.  How the news and social media are making you sicker.  7 ways to dominate your days.  How to get more done in 4 hours than most people do in 16.  5 things you must eliminate if you want to live your dreams.  Little known ways to boost your libido (rock hard boners). The 8 characteristics of optimal health.  Sponsors:
