Mind and Body: The Collective Efforts of Positive Change, w/ Jason Komosa

This week we speak to Certified Mental Coach, Jason Komosa. Years after studying Psychology + Marketing while helping a small beverage company (Vitamin Water) grow into a Goliath purchased by Coca-Cola, and forgoing a Doctoral Program in Psychology at the University of Chicago to instead help launch an internet company (Groupon), Jason found himself confused, and unfulfilled. His career success grew at an exponential rate, as he was able to rapidly complete the ‘Path-To-Happiness’ checklist he superficially created as a teenager, albeit before the age of 30. He still found myself eagerly seeking more out of life. Now, Jason is using his education and experience to help others gain the habits and perspective they need to lead the life they were meant to.

Blood Sugar, CGMs, and Food Combinations, w/ Austin Mcguffie

Today you will hear from the metabolism mentor, Austin Mcguffie. Austin and I discuss blood sugar, the affects of blood sugar on our metabolic health, and the benefits of using a continuous glucose monitor. I’ve been personally using a CGM for a few months now, and it has made an immediate impact on my food choices. Most would call me a healthy eater, and while that may be accurate as a general statement, I still learned a lot about what specifically affects my body and metabolism and in what way. These adjustments have helped me to make better decisions and only further improve my health. Austin and I discuss this, how to make good food and lifestyle choices without a CGM, and dive in to todays diet culture and tips to avoid the negative advice that is out there.

At too young of an age, the father of Austin and Caleb Majors was given two weeks to live, diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer. Mr. Majors decided to take his health into his own hands, turning to major lifestyle changes in hopes he could defeat the odds. He would survive 7 years, inspiring and educating many along the way. Mr. Majors strength and selflessness in this situation is incredible, but equally as impressive is his family around him. Fast forward to today, Caleb and Austin have taken the recipes their mother used to aid in the health of their father and turned them into a successful business that gives healthier and higher quality snacks to all of us, BrothersNuts.
