Episode #719



On the cusp of my 40th birthday, I was your average couch potato. 50 pounds overweight. Dazing out in front of the television with a bag of cheeseburgers and fries, coasting into middle age on a crash course to chronic illness.

After suffering from a health scare, I woke up.

I ditched the junk food. I  attempted to eat healthier. And I came to a profound and surprising discovery: The more whole plant foods predominated my plate, the better I felt. This epiphany led to me adopting a 100% plant-based diet, which has served me well for 16 years, powered me through some of the world’s most grueling endurance challenges, and motivates me to evangelize its many benefits. All of which brings us to today.

For the past year and a half, we’ve been creating quarterly episodes centered on a singular theme offered as an RRP Masterclass. These compilation episodes are derived from multiple past guests, and today, we focus our attention on plant-based nutrition.

“My entire life transformed when I changed my relationship with food.”


To gain the greatest insight into this topic, my team and I mined wisdom from the most esteemed doctors and the foremost experts in nutrition science that have graced the show—individuals who have direct experience with the impacts of a standard American diet, treatment protocols that include lifestyle changes toward plant fuel, the impact, and reversal of serious cardiovascular issues. The full guest list with links to their full episodes is below:
