Now that I’m 36, the signs of aging are creeping up slowly but surely…
The gray hairs on my chin.
An aversion to loud music. (The older I get, the louder it gets.)
Taking an entire 15 minutes to get warmed up at the gym.
Hey, I’m no spring chicken anymore. Then again, despite the minor annoyances above, I’d say I’m aging pretty darn well.
I imagine that would have a lot to do with the way I live — real food, just enough exercise, plenty of sleep, low stress levels (well, most of the time), and an amazing group of friends who have similar lifestyles.
While there’s nothing I (or you) can to do to completely stop the aging process, it can certainly be slowed down by making the right choices.
This week on Underground Wellness Radio, Dr. Trevor Cates and I discusses exactly what those anti-aging choices are.

No one likes a dry, overcooked Thanksgiving turkey.
After hours and hours of prep time and cooking, a subpar turkey dinner can be a real bummer for everyone at the table, especially the cook.
So this year, my friend Chef Lance and I have set out on a mission to rid the world of dry bird disasters.
We’re calling it Operation Juicy Bird.
Our objective: To show YOU how to make the juiciest, most flavorful turkey to ever grace your Thanksgiving table.
One that will draw raves from your friends and family.
To carry out our mission, the chef and I filmed a step-by-step video for you below.
And that’s not it…
We also had Carrie the Graphic Designer put together an instructional Underground Holiday Recipe Guide with ingredients and instructions for your Juicy Bird as well as delicious side dishes, including yams, Paleo Bread stuffing, and Brussels sprouts with bacon.
When I was a little guy, I lived for those days when I would walk down to the local comic book and candy store with a five dollar bill to get 500 pieced of candy — butterscotches, bazooka gums, smarties, you name it — all for a penny each.
No wonder I had a mouthful of fillings!
Fortunately, I outgrew my childhood sugar addiction — though I do love me some dark chocolate covered almonds ever now and then…
But there a lot of people whose days are literally fueled by sugary, processed foods that forever have them riding the blood sugar roller coaster.
For these folks, it might be time for a sugar detox.
On this week’s episode of Underground Wellness Radio, Diane Sanfilippo — author of The 21-Day Sugar Detox — and I discuss how to stamp out sugar cravings, stabilize your energy levels, and break free of the sugar addiction cycle.

There’s one way to find out, and it doesn’t exactly require expensive testing and such.
Just STOP eating it.
Do it for 30 days and see if you feel better.
In my experience working with health coaching clients, nine out of ten people find that some, if not all, of their nagging health problems tend to disappear with the removal of gluten from the diet. When they start eating it again, the problems come right back.
Two plus two, right?
By now, everyone has heard of a gluten-free diet. Some people swear by it. Others call it quackery or a fad.
But this is no fad, my friends. This is science.
Our friend Dr. Tom O’Bryan has put together a FREE online summit that will inform you on the how, what, and why of gluten sensitivity.
