CJ Hunt is an independent filmmaker who
created his 2012 film entitled “In Search Of The Perfect
Human Diet” that takes a look at what nutritional approach our
bodies were made to run most efficiently on. He travels through
time and around the world on an unprecedented global exploration to
find a solution to the exploding epidemic of overweight, obesity
and diet related disease. The Perfect Human Diet takes us on a
2-million year evolutionary journey to discover breakthrough
scientific facts that could change the way we all think about food
in the first ever 'Paleo Diet' documentary.
In this episode we talk about what Paleo actually means and
what the research from around the world shows. Scientists have
shown that hunter-gatherer societies which were successful and
survived subsisted mostly on animal foods and very little starches.
He started out as a raw food vegan and eventually found that he
wouldn't have the energy to manage the stresses that life requires.
He then talks about how the foods we grew up with may not be the
best foods for our bodies. They could be normal and good but they
may not be optimal. Then we talk about how he made the movie and
how he spent 10 years and $250k to create it. Finally we talk about
how travelling allows you to have a deeper respect for lives around
the world and their ways of life.
Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Could it also provide some benefit and learning experiences later in life? I have always thought this and this is why I have relentlessly travelled the world and now have been to over 80 countries. I have always thought that I was planting the seeds of wisdom while in faraway lands. Through experiences with foreign people, cultures, concepts, and ways of doing things I learned much more than anything I could've done while at home. I interview amazing guests, bestselling authors, scientists, successful business people, dating experts, travel junkies, polyglots (people who speak more than 3 languages), and anybody who I think is interesting for the growth of our listeners and I as people. I think by doing this we can plant the seeds of wisdom which will ultimately lead to our success in career, business, money, relationships, self-worth, and generally being a more well-rounded person. But it requires you to be active making this happen. What do you think?
