Robb Wolf joins Drew on this educational podcast about the importance of understanding your unique nutritional needs. Robb grew up in a family who didn’t stress the importance of a healthy lifestyle or nutrition. During his college years, Robb experimented with his diet and basically stressed out his body. He ended up with ulcerative colitis and, instead of removing half of his intestinal tract, he decided to change his nutritional life. Robb’s new book, Wired to Eat, looks at the science associated with a body’s glucose levels.

Drew and Robb discuss medical technologies, why one diet doesn’t fit all and parenting during the nutritional crisis in the U.S.

Drew welcomes the owner and founder of DNX bars, John Rooney. John started DNX Bars to provide a nutritious option for people who are on the go. John spent 20 years running his own business and not paying attention to his wellness. At age 50, when he sold his company, he decided he was going to turn his lifestyle on its head and start being good to himself. John found getting into the ‘Meat Snack’ industry was fairly simple but making real food to nourish people was a bit more challenging. It was a challenge he was willing to accept. When John realized government nutrition labels were a farce, he was determined to get people and food manufacturers involved in DNX’s Declaration of Transparency to educate people of a product's true ingredients, without being deceived by jargon and workarounds.

Drinking alcohol helps to reduce mind-chatter and in proper dosages, wine can help to enhance creative development and expression. Wine even brings more love into the world says Drew’s guest, Todd White.

Todd is a biohacker and creator Dry Farm Wines. All Dry Farm Wines are collected from artisans who produce non-irrigated, ketogenic, natural wines. Todd shares information about the government conspiracies to keep ingredient labels off of wine packaging, why alcohol content percentages can’t be trusted and why irrigation is used by tank farms solely for the purpose of producing quantity, not quality wines. Todd also details his morning ritual which includes breath fitness techniques and meditation. Plus, all Fit2Fat2Fit listeners get a bottle of Dry Farm Wines for only a penny!
