I received an e-mail from someone claiming to be part of Rich Roll's management team. Is it legit?

A less-than-savory individual or group of people have been spamming people with offers of payment for appearing on my podcast.

Hundreds if not thousands of these e-mails have been sent (I get a ton of DMs about this daily), with the aim of enticing the unsuspecting recipient into giving over their Facebook login credentials and in turn locking the rightful owner out of their account.

Although I am uncertain as to the end game, I suspect it allows the perpetrator to commandeer the Facebook page and weaponize it for their own gain through crypto scams and/or nefarious marketing aims.

Moreover, my podcast is not the only show being misrepresented. Tim Ferris, Steven Bartlett, Chris Williamson, Lewis Howes, Lex Fridman and many other prominent podcasters are being similarly affected.

For the record, I have never paid a guest nor accepted payment from a guest to appear on the show. Nor will I ever do this in the future. In fact, no legitimate podcaster (as far as I am aware) would do this. Therefore any such offer should serve as a red flag to ignore.

For most this scam is pretty transparent. But there have been victims. It’s quite upsetting that my name is being used to do harm to others.

Final thought: I don’t have a booker. I personally invite all guests for the show myself. So if you receive an e-mail that doesn’t have a ‘@richroll.com’ address, it isn’t legit.

Apologies to any and all that have been hassled by this intrusion.

What do you typically eat in a day?

In general, my basic diet varies depending upon the volume and intensity of training. That said, I have attempted to distill some basics I hope you find helpful.

Morning Nutrition

I generally begin each day with at least a liter of room temperature water with a few ounces of apple cider vinegar, followed by a green smoothie prepared in the Vitamix, our super high powered blender. This recipe varies considerably, but it generally includes dark leafy greens like kale, spinach and chard; 1 beet plus beet greens; 1-2 bananas; ½ cup of blackberries or blueberries; coconut water; 1 tablespoon each of chia seeds, hemp seeds and ground flax seeds, maca powder, spirulina powder and acai powder.

Typically this is more than enough to get me out the door for my first training session of the day. The only caveat is the occasional fasting workout where after my morning liter of water I enjoy 1 cup of strong coffee and then just head out to train, refraining from food until after my morning session.

If I am extra hungry in the morning, I will add a bowl of cold quinoa with blueberries, almond milk and chia seeds and/or some gluten-free toast with almond butter. For the super long sessions I pack one water bottle with 900 calories of Perpetum, a maltodextrin based, low glycemic liquid carbohydrate drink.

As an aside, all foods are organic – this is important.

Training Nutrition

During long cycling workouts, I drink coconut water and feed on bananas, dates, almond butter and sweet potatoes. During long-running workouts, coconut water, water, electrolyte tablets, dates and Perpetum get me through.

For swimming workouts, I stick to simply hydrating with water or coconut water.

Post Workout Nutrition

Upon conclusion of a training session, I immediately rehydrate with water and coconut water. Within the first-hour post-workout, it’s another big green smoothie, similar to the morning version with lots of greens with an added focus on fruits like bananas (3-4), berries and citrus, plus one scoop of plant-based protein powder. For this I prefer 22 Days Nutrition as it is organic (rare in the protein powder/supplements world).

It’s important to note that I do not overdo it with the protein – I have found through years of experimentation that we just don’t need as much as we think. I believe people would be surprised that despite my sever training load that I have had no issues building lean muscle mass and expediting my recovery between workouts without supplements – 1 scoop of protein powder a day or even every other day is more than enough – don’t get me started on all the confusion and misunderstanding around protein!


I keep it light throughout the day. A big salad with steamed or blackened veggies with balsamic dressing usually does the trick, supplemented by snacking and grazing throughout the day on fruits (bananas and dates) and nuts like raw almonds, walnuts and Brazil nuts. If I am really hungry, some rice or quinoa with lentils hits the spot.


I eat a large dinner, usually a recipe Julie prepares from The Plantpower Way – veggie burritos, vegan lasagna, enchiladas, a huge bowl of rice and quinoa with black beans, guacamole and hot sauce are typical fare.

One thing that might surprise people is that I actually don’t eat as much as people might think. Over time, my body has acclimated to the training load, becoming very efficient. Therefore, the long rides and runs don’t take the toll people think, so my appetite isn’t as voracious as one might believe. In addition, the foods I eat are so nutritionally dense that I am getting all the nutrients, micronutrients, phytonutrients, minerals and vitamins I need.
