Join me as we find out:

  • How did he make a start on Mark’s Daily Apple?
  • How can performance athletes balance their training requirements with good nutrition?
  • What's his formula for looking after himself these days?
  • How do we best navigate conflicting health information?

Also, Mark will share with us:

  • What he's doing for the world right now.
  • His thoughts on big business and nutrition.
  • The benefits of metabolic flexibility.

It was a pleasure to have Mark on the podcast, to soak up his many years of experience and the wisdoms he’s gained along the way:

“I created a mission statement that said I wanted to change the lives of 10 million people. About four or five years into that we already had hit that number and so I had to add a zero!”

“All the really cool stuff happens when you’re not eating.”

“Our ancestors didn't eat three square meals a day.”

“It’s the stuff you're not eating that’s making the big difference in your health.”
