Gut Health, Supplementation, and Nutrient Absorption w/ Marcus Filly

Marcus Filly is back on the show! He really opened up my mind to a lot of things in this episode. If you haven’t listen to his last one (Functional Bodybuilding), I highly recommend you check it out. It remains the most downloaded episode to this day.

Marcus painted a very clear picture with vivid examples on how to view your relationship with nutrition when designing it as a part of your lifestyle. He gave a perspective on what it means to be dedicated to a quality nutrition program over a long period of time. Completely outside of nutrition, he drops a lot of gems that are sure to get you thinking.

In this episode, some things we chat about:

  • How do you sift through all the B.S. in the supplement industry?

  • How do you choose your supplements on a budget? What should you spend your money on? What is a waste?

  • How does a gut health relate to stress, energy levels, and how sick you get?

  • How does gut health hold someone back from having a thinner waistline?

  • Poop.
