S02E16: The Gut Health And Probiotics Episode: How Healthy Is Your Gut?
How important is your gut health to your overall wellbeing?
Well, new science has revealed that your brain and your gut talk directly to each other - which means that your gut health can literally impact your brain and cognition, but there’s more…
Your gut directly (or indirectly) impacts all major systems and processes in your body. When your gut is healthy, you feel energetic, alert, mentally sharp, and have great digestion.
Poor gut health can lead to lethargy, poor digestion, a weaker immune system, and increased cortisol (your stress hormone).
One of the best ways to improve your gut health is by consuming more probiotics in your diet (or through supplementation).
In this episode, we talk all about probiotics and why you need to know about them, including the top 5 foods you can eat to get more beneficial probiotics in your diet.
Why you need to pay attention to your gut health How you gut talks directly to your brain - and why an unhealthy gut can be the root cause of so many issues Probiotics and why you need them (including some of the most probiotic-rich foods you need to be eating) The Paleo diet: is it necessarily a bad thing?

In this episode of the Road To Ripped podcast, we talk about a huge issue a lot of people experience: a weight loss plateau.
This is natural and something everyone experiences at one point or another in their journey… And the thing is, this plateau usually happens just before you see your abs at 12-15% body fat.

S02E14: How To Free Yourself From A Victim Mentality & Live The Life You Want
Do you know anyone who seems addicted to being a victim, negative about nearly everything and acts like the world is conspiring against them?
Or what about someone who’s overwhelmingly positive, who faces and overcomes challenges and seems to always find a way to succeed?
The difference all comes down to mindset.
If you’re not experiencing the results you want - in your life, in your physique, in relationships… It’s your own mind that’s usually what’s holding you back.
Adopting and perpetuating the victim mentality is a choice - which means it can be a choice to rise above it and take charge of your life.
In this episode, we talk about how to take responsibility over actions and by doing so it allows you to live your life to the fullest.

Zach from the Kinobody team joins us today to talk about his dramatic fat loss transformation…
Following a bad breakup, Zach got a wake up call when he realized he was an unhealthy 250 pounds - and decided to make a change.

Putting his skepticism aside, Zach tried the Kinobody approach…
In just over a year, Zach went from a chubby 250 pounds to a shredded and muscular 185 pounds - and has kept the weight off effortlessly.

I’ve always said look at those d bags and their heavy weight. Now I’m one of those d-bags! Serious gains without gaining weight. Looking forward to new podcast next year. I re listen to all the old ones when I start to slip in motivation our need to hear a pretty spot on Owen Wilson impression. Thanks for the info Guys!
Honest, Concise, and Informed
My boyfriend and I love this podcast! Greg and Chris are amazing. The information that they provide is from true studies and they aren’t just spouting scare tactics. It’s all about mindset, and they have put their minds in a place where they can really meet us where we are. I have seen so much improvement in my state of mind since starting to listen to this podcast. Keep it up guys!
This is a great podcast. These guys share really good information in a really funny and relatable way. They feel genuine and are good at what they do. The intermittent fasting thing is working for me as well, I’m losing weight daily which is very encouraging. Another thing, these guys have this amazing sense of wisdom that usually comes with people that are in their seventies. Every episode I notice this manifested in something they say, really cool. My only critique (and I get if you can’t change this) is the way Greg talks sometimes. If you didn’t know his stuff worked already you’d think he was selling you poison. Alright alright, that’s it. Good job.
