Today is the last day to get all the recordings for the Healthy Life Summit before the price doubles. Of course, you can also listen to all the recordings on the day they come out for free just by registering your email address. That’s how all these online conferences seem to work. There are definitely a few interesting talks amongst the 35 speakers presenting at this online “Summit.” My talk with the host, AnnMarie Michaels, airs on Friday, March 29th. Hopefully you can listen in to some of the talks without getting too swept away and cast back into the pit of dietary puritanism. If you do I’ll swoop in on Friday and rescue you, as AnnMarie and I talk about how the results she got from embracing some 180 principles far exceeded any help… Read more »
A while back I posted links to some of the best articles I had recently read. Readers seemed to really enjoy being directed to these great reads. Here’s another installment… The first is an absolute must-read. I love information, but I have a weakness for really clever and creative writing. This article combines both in one of the best pieces I’ve read on the modern disease known as healthitis… The Terrible Tragedy of the Healthy Eater Next is by Scott Abel. I’ve been impressed with Scott for years, and his material just seems to get better and better. This is a powerful article about how the dieting mentality influences young kids – certainly an inspiring motivator for ending the diet cycle. Warning – it mentions some really gruesome stats on… Read more »
When I first started health-geeking I lost touch with reality and practicality. I was just a single 20-something dude with a seasonal job, no debts, and very low expenses. I could afford to up and leave wherever I was living and just milk cows in exchange for raw milk, or volunteer at an organic farm to load up on local produce – both of which I did. I also had plenty of time and space just to allow my life to revolve around gathering, cooking, and eating my food. I, like so many of us who have congregated here, was painfully perfectionistic about my health exploits. The results were mediocre at best, the effort was completely life-eclipsing. I enjoyed myself don’t get me wrong. It was all part of my… Read more »
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Hey party people- Rob here, giving you a heads up about a live internet radio appearance with Matt tonight on Dr Marty’s Wellness Experience . I reached out to Dr. Marty a couple months ago about Eat for Heat and he wanted to have Matt share some of the tips and tweaks for increasing the metabolic rate by adjusting our food and drink patterns. You can call in live at 7pm EST and listen at (347) 633-9769 or tune in later to catch the archived edition here.
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Happy New Year Crew! Anyone looking for a little aural dose of 180? Well you’re in luck. Matt appeared recently on Healthy Talk with Dr Mike to talk about Eat for Heat and to discuss how to eat for a long, robust life. Should be a good one. Check it out today, January 2 at 1pm EST, or you can download or stream it anytime afterward at the link above. They also offer a free Life Extension Foundation Magazine, available on their sidebar. Feel free to check that out too. Catch you folks on the flip side.
Tune in at 3pm eastern time to hear my interview with Joni Cox of Homegrown Health on Natural News Radio. If you don’t tune in on time, you can find it in the Homegrown Health archives and listen to it later. On the show we talk about some of the basic ideas in Eat for Heat, and discuss Joni’s 2-day elimination of migraines that had plagued her for 2 years – all by stopping her ridiculous habit of forcing down water beyond physiological thirst in an attempt to be healthy. You know, that Water Cure crap by Dr. Batmandumphuck. Enjoy. And I apologize in advance for not rapping at the end, and beat-boxing per Joni’s request. I’m a wuss. It’s true.
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Happy Monday, everyone! Only eighteen days left ’til the solstice and the end of the Mayan Calendar. Whooo-daddy! Who knows what’s gonna happen? Haha. Anyway, I’ve been rabbit riding across the web, spreading glad tidings and 180D cheer, and I bring you a gift today: a lovely little piece from our inestimable Mateo, entitled Nutrition in Three Words. It’s published over at Exterminating Angel Press Magazine; this Winter 2012 issue is themed: Words, Words, Words. No peeking- can anyone guess which three words nutrition is all about? Thanks to Tod Davies for the feature.
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Ahoy, buckaroos- Rob here, emissary from the world wide web, letting you know about more happenings from Mattarino and 180D. Matt recently sat down (electronically) for a question and answer session with Rosie at the Natural Maven to talk about juicing. Is it good? Is it bad? If you know Matt, you know nothing gets so perfunctory and simplified a treatment. In the post, he talks about how and when juicing can be beneficial, the possible dangers, and how to go about incorporating it into your life if you’re inspired to. It’s a great primer, especially in light of the recent research and interest here about the role of fluids and their cellular concentration as it relates to the metabolism and feelings of well-being….

By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Greetings 180D party people- Rob here, writing to give you a heads up about a couple of guest appearances Matt has going on. One of them is a radio interview with Joni Cox of Homegrown Health Radio, airing today from 3-4pm EST. Tune in to Natural News Radio to listen live or here anytime afterward for the downloadable archived show. Another is an article for Donovan Baldwin over at Fitness Over Forty. Piggybacking on the recent topic of metabolic decline as we age, Matt outlines why what we eat does not correspond so tightly to how healthy we are, or what our specific health biomarkers will be. It’s an always useful message for those would would oversimplify the complex relationship between what we eat… Read more »
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Quick heads up folks- Matt recently offered a guest article for Tom Corson-Knowles on the bodyweight set point. It’s a nice introduction to the concept and has some ideas about how to impact it. Plus, the cast of Willow, the Swedish Bikini Team and Alf- oh my! It just went live over on Tom’s site, so head on over and check it out here.
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Ahoy, y’all- Matt’s got a new interview up over on Jason Hartman’s Holistic Survival Podcast. It’s a great one covering some of the big ideas behind 180D and what makes Matt’s approach unique and compelling. Especially for those just getting started here, it’s definitely worth a listen. Check it out: 180 Degree Health with Matt Stone Jason’s got a good site over there as well, helping people prepare for a changing world through proactive, positive steps. As a former apprentice on a permaculture homestead and assistant to an organic vegetable minifarm, I dig that a couple of permaculturists have been previous guests. He’s got lots of other good info there too, so feel free to poke around.
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Hey buckaroos- just wanted to give all a heads up that Matt’s got a guest article over at Outsmart Disease, a site hosted by Marina Gutner, PhD and geared toward those with thyroid issues like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Matt’s post is entitled ‘Thyroid Rehab- The Diet and Lifestyle Approach,’ and offers a nice summary of the role of stress hormones and inflammation in suppressing the metabolism and thyroid, and some general guidelines to suppressing that stress response and enhancing the metabolism. Go check it out!
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Hey everyone- know how y’all think Matt is crazy for suggesting that fast food can be the ticket to health for some people? That in the right context, junk food really can be therapeutic? Here‘s an elaboration on some of that, and why many people can’t see the forest for the trees. Kendahl at Our Nourishing Roots is featuring Matt in a guest post entitled ‘Nutrition Minutia Got Ya Down?’ Go check it out and see if Matt really has lost his marbles, or if he’s still playing with a full deck. Also, on or around Tuesday of next week, Matt will share the conclusions of the McXsperiment and some great video footage. And early next week I’ll have some thoughts to share about… Read more »
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Just a quick heads up here- Matt offered a nice introductory description of what 180 Degree Health is about in an interview with Tom Corson-Knowles for his podcast show. Listen to the interview below and pass it on. Full podcast page available here. Don’t forget to pay Tom a visit as well. He’s always searching for new ideas and approaches to health and wellness, and offers a lot for readers to chew on. Matt wrote recently about the benefits of being outdoors, including the upside of direct contact with the ground, and Tom has a nice recent post of the topic, a review and write up of Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? Another recent post describes the Japanese philosophy of Morita, which… Read more »
By Rob Archangel, 180DegreeHealth.com staff writer Today at the Real Foods Summit, I listened to Jenny McGruther talk about the practice and benefits of fermentation. This is a topic near and dear to me. Around six years ago, I stopped eating a vegan diet and found the Weston A Price Foundation. Through them, I found a guy named Sandor Katz. Sandor is awesome. He wrote a book called Wild Fermentation, and it inspired me to get into the practice of making things like sauerkraut, kimchi, sourdough bread and kombucha. Maybe it was psychosomatic, but I also found that as I started eating meat, especially fatty meats like sausages, having a like bit of ‘kraut or kimchi helped my belly like me more afterward. A year or so later, I left the… Read more »
Sean Croxton is up to his usual extreme interviewing prowess, and is at it again with another online summit featuring nearly 30 interviews. His eardrums must be made of some kind of titanium alloy. None of that Paleo stuff this time. This summit is the REAL FOOD SUMMIT. The speakers look good. If you have never heard Joel Salatin speak, who is first in the lineup, I promise you it is worth your time. I’m particularly excited about his talk, not necessarily because of his beliefs but because he is just such a rare character that tricks you into thinking deeply while you’re having a ton of fun. In 2008 I seriously contemplated spending a year apprenticing at his farm to learn about his revolutionary ”polyculture.” But then I came to my senses and remembered… Read more »
Tonight at 8pm Eastern I will be discussing digestion in great depth with Josh and Jeanne Rubin from East West Healing and Performance. The show is called “Filling in all the GAPS with the GAPS Diet. It should be a very insightful session. The Rubins really know their, ahem, shit. You should be able to listen to it here as it goes live at 8pm Eastern. Feel free to call in with questions, comments, or your experiences on the GAPS diet or similar protocols. I would highly recommend listening to their past shows as well – some hardcore geek outs with Ray Peat that make any lengthy roadtrip a breeze (got one coming up soon myself! – a road trip, not an interview with Ray!). The call-in number for the show is: … Read more »
If you missed my talk yesterday as part of the Paleo Summit, you’re in luck! For starters, as of midnight last night, you can purchase all the recordings plus transcripts and other bonuses from the Paleo Summit. If you are at all interested, get it now by clicking HERE. The price goes up after Sunday to like $99 I think (Warning! You are about to enter the internet sales vortex!). I hear some of the other talks were really good. I suspect both Jaminet and Kruse were both pretty interesting, although I haven’t heard a word of anyone’s talk yet. Just remember to IgNora Gedgaudas haha! Secondly, I just completed a written interview Q and A session with Hunter Copeland – a Johnny Lawrence-esque type of Alabama man (shown left) who comes… Read more »
