    Just finished listening to this episode. I knew nomeatathlete.com before so it was great to hear guy behind the website live. What’s even better, for me, are these podcast notes with names and links for all the resources – very useful. Definitely going to watch Earthlings.

      I’m glad you found the resources helpful. Earthlings is definitely worth your time, even though it’s tough to watch.

        Yeah, definitely not everybody is up for exposing themselves to the niceness set forth in this documentary. To spread the word, I sent out “Earthlings” to a bunch of people right after I’d watched the movie. The list included around 15 recipients of which two replied with something like “I haven’t even managed to get through the trailer, man”/”Are those people off their frickin’ chumps? You have to be a pervert to actually film stuff like this” and the rest of ’em didn’t respond at all. Ah…no, there was the third guy who said “Jesus Christ, it’s unbelievable”, but as far as I can observe he hasn’t taken any action since. I actually don’t know if he went through the whole movie or just skimmed over the trailer, but I guess it’s the latter, cuz it’s virtually impossible to eat animal products after accomplishing the former unless you got the compassion parts of your brain excised. Hiding from the truth is a really interesting phenomenon I must say. I am currently in the process of analyzing my own judgments that were withholding me from going vegan and I am truly and genuinely amazed by the finesse with which my left brain was rationalizing the consumption of animal products in order to keep me in, what it thought at the moment was the comfort zone. When it comes to self-deception and rationalization some people are really good lairs. It’s truly remarkable…

    This is episode was great and in my opinion the tip of the week is by far the best that you have ever delivered in the area of productivity, success and motivation.

    As for the episode its great and thought a lot of tips, its amazing that we are so accustomed to artificial drinks and gels but the natural foods are the ones to focus on.

    What was the name of the drink mentioned in the episode as a substitute to gatorade?
