We’re trapped in a web of narratives. Right now, the United States is crippled by an obesity epidemic that’s getting bigger, made worse by the endless wave of related “facts” coming at us from every screen.

If there is a pill for every ill, why are we so sick?  

Shawn Stevenson Shows Almost 30 Nation How to Create a Unique Model of Health, Happiness & Success

Shawn Stevenson has been on a 20-year mission to learn and research where we went wrong and how we can get out of this mess. Forget about “burning fat” and instead learn the facts that will free us from this prison of chronic illness. Shawn’s exit strategy is to share information from an objective place, without an agenda, and truly respect the human body as a complex lab.

Your value is not based on a number. Fat is not your enemy, it’s more of an overprotective parent. Let’s step back, look within, and see what we find.

“The human body isn’t a calculator, it’s a dynamic chemistry lab.”

Shawn Stevenson, The Model Health Show

We also talk about:

  • The current state of health
  • A nuanced approach to obesity and weight loss
  • Fat: what it is and why we need it
  • Gut health and immunity 
  • The biology of fear 
  • How do we move forward?
