In this episode, I interview my buddy Sal from the hugely popular Mind Pump Podcast, which he hosts with Adam and Justin, and which you should definitely check out.

I wanted Sal to talk about three topics that he’s particularly revved up about recently, and that’s gut health, overcoming systemic fatigue, and using mindful/intuitive eating strategies over more rigid, planning/tracking-based strategies.

Here’s a little sneak peek of what we talk about in today’s interview:

What “leaky gut” is and how it can affect your body.
How artificial sweeteners can harm our gut health, and how that can in turn affect many aspects of our health and wellness.
What “HPA/HPAT Axis Dysfunction” is, why many people are suffering from it, and what you can do to beat it.
