This episode is all about practical living and overcoming challenges.

Tony Scarborough was the first ever guest on Rebooted Body, all the back on RB001 in April 2013. He’s a good friend of mine and someone who has been dedicated to real food and functional movement since I motivated him to make some changes a couple years ago, even though he’s faced a myriad of challenges along the way.

And those challenges are precisely why I invited him to be the first ever in-studio guest—to talk about healthy living in the real world.

Last week I did some equipment upgrades which also gave me the capability of having an in-studio guest (versus recording everything over Skype). Since Tony was the first guest on this show, I thought it fitting that he also serve as the first in-studio guest.

I’ve gotta say, I REALLY loved recording this episode. It was so much better and more engaging having my guest be here in person. And the conversation we had was really stimulating, practical, and important.

Not only do we talk about the challenges that Tony has faced (so you can hear how he has worked to overcome them), we talk about the politics of health and how to win even though the deck is stacked against you.

I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.

    This was the best show yet. I agree with the political commentary 100% and want to hear more! Don’t shy away from this topic in the future.

    Hi, I like you’re show and I’ve been listening as I drive tractors on the organic farm where I work. I am very interested – and still gathering information – about the GMO labeling decision. In the spirit of education and promoting conversation, I’d like to contribute to the dialogue. One point made during this show was that the organic label isn’t regulated when in fact, it’s very highly regulated through a third party private company. For us, it’s our Land Grant University. We get two audits per year, one announced and one unannounced. It’s not a huge cost in the long-run and given the benefit, but it involves a tremendous amount of paperwork and record keeping throughout the year every year and that takes a lot of man hours, adding to the cost. At the end of the day, it’s the majority of my job, so imagine adding one payroll to the company. The benefit is that we can sell to people outside of our direct scope, making a product more widely available. In other words, some farmers choose not to certify organic because they sell directly to the consumer and can talk to customers about their growing practices. However, by certifying – and by knowing that the label is regulated – people can buy ‘Organic’ at Whole Foods and it means something. The problem is that it puts the cost back on the organic farmer instead of the non-organic farmer. This to me translates to GMO labeling. If we require non-GMO companies to label, and if we want it regulated so that it actually means something (read: ‘organic’ vs. ‘natural’, which is unregulated and means very little) then we punish the non-GMO farmers. It would make sense then, that we regulate GMO labeling to discourage GMO farmers.

    Again, I am very interested in this conversation and by no means intend to create a divide. For the good of us all, it seems like an important topic to discuss. I am interested in hearing more. Thank you.

      Hi Marissa,

      Thanks for your comment. If you look at the history of government regulations in the food industry, they almost always do more harm than good. And since there are other ways to accomplish our goal of identifying foods made with GMOs, I staunchly oppose getting the government involved.
