Kyle Kingsbury is a former football player (Arizona State) and mixed martial artist who fought professionally for eight years (UFC six years). While fighting at the highest level he became fascinated with all things diet, performance, and recovery related. Since retiring, his focus has shifted to learning more about longevity, plant medicines, and inner peace.
And the dude is one entertaining son-of-a-gun.
This summer, Kyle descended upon my home in Spokane, Washington and, as you get to hear in this podcast, recorded straight from my backyard, we take a deep dive into the realms of superfood smoothies, fasting, ketosis and the microbiome, biohacking, nutrition tactics, training tactics and beyond.
