Welcome to my Weekly Roundup!
In one convenient post, you're about to discover the most important things I've noticed this week, including the latest news from the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking and anti-aging research, the top photos, videos and stories from this week, upcoming events and speaking appearances, giveaways, specials and a host of other things you may have missed.
New Discoveries Of The Week (NEW Weekly Roundup Feature!): Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Two weeks ago, I posted this video on Facebook in which I asked you if you wanted more insider tips and tricks based on new things I've been trying, books I've read, or new “biohacks”, tips, tricks, toys or tactics I've recently discovered.
You seemed to like the idea, so, without further here's my top three discoveries this week!
–The Dirt is a paleo-friendly personal care company that makes Soy Free, Corn Free, Gluten Free, Grain Free, and Cruelty Free natural products particularly for oral care with no fillers. I’ve personally been using their mint breath spray in the morning when I need to leap out of bed with fresh breath and don’t want to take the time to brush my teeth or spike my blood sugar with a breath mint. This is also something that works great if you’re in bed with a loved one in and want to “get it on” in the morning without having to feel self-conscious about your breath (yep, you know exactly what I mean). Click here to try it out in either sexy cinnamon or refreshing mint flavor.
–LEVL To measure fat burning and ketone production, I have a brand new technology called a LEVL now sitting on my desk. You just breathe into it once, and within about 30 seconds you know your ketone level, your fat burning status and how many freakin' pounds of fat you can burn per week. If you want to try LEVL for yourself, just go to LEVLnow.com. Here's a demo of me using it.
–MyoBuddy I'm a huge fan of this thing called a MyoBuddy. It's a vibrating massage therapy device that's like a wake-me-up for the entire body. I use it nearly everyday for myriad things from full body massage starting with my feet all the way up to my jaw. Not kidding, I'll press it up against my jaw and just open and close my jaw repeatedly. It's also great therapy for increasing the tone of the vagus nerve (MyoBuddy doesn't necessarily recommend this, but I do, so there).

::: The Better Belly Project :::
It's no secret that I am a huge advocate for taking care of your gut. By abusing or neglecting a section of your body that is even more exposed to external environments than your skin, you’re setting yourself up for trouble. Your gut is very much alive and crawling with critters.
Over 500 species and 3 pounds of bacteria in your digestive tract form a giant ecosystem that helps you to digest food, regulate hormones, excrete toxins, and produce vitamins and other healing compounds that keep your gut and your body healthy. If that ecosystem is out of balance, then a bacterial imbalance called gut “dysbiosis” is the result, and you’ll soon learn how disruptive that imbalance can be to your performance.
Are you ready to take your gut health into your own hands, and enhance your mood, health, and performance? You'll definitely want to join the completely FREE Better Belly Project Summit. Registration for the Better Belly Project 2.0 Summit has begun! This completely free online conference brings together top experts (myself included…) in digestion, nutrition, and health.
