The Free-Time Formula with Jeff Sanders
01:06:57
Life... it's stressful. Work, kids, school, training, dishes, they all pile up draining you of energy and time, until suddenly, you no longer have any free-time to yourself. Now, there are a lot of productivity gurus and self-help personalities pushing life-hacks and cheats to save 15 minutes here or free up a little time there, but rarely do they solve any of the lasting struggles overwhelming your day. Jeff Sanders, a good friend of NMA, has a different approach. You may remember Jeff from previous episodes of the podcast. He's the host of the 5AM Miracle, and has helped both Matt and I work on creating more productive, healthier morning routines. Today we're bringing him back on, not to focus on mornings, but instead to help us understand how to identify and uproot the real causes of the procrastination and stress in our lives, and how to free up time to do what we love. And to do that through the functional, real-life strategies -- not hacks -- outlined in his new book, The Free-Time Formula.

Are We Improving Ourselves too Much?
53:01
It's no secret that we like self improvement strategies here at NMA Radio. We like to set big goals and create habits that help with performance, productivity, and effectiveness. But at what price? After reading a recent article in the New Yorker, and following it up with a few not-so-hip-on self improvement books, Matt has found himself in a place where he's no longer sure if focusing on self improvement is a good thing. Let's discuss...

Supplements for Vegans: What Do We Need? (Rewind)

The 5 Big Keys to Habit Change

Keys – or rules – that when not followed, are often the reasons why most people fail to make new health and fitness habits work. In today's episode, we share a clip from an Academy seminar, outlining those keys to creating habits that stick, and provide real life examples from my own successes (and failures) to help you put these rules into action.

The Big Holiday Extravaganza of 2017
01:06:21
One of my favorite episodes each year is our big, epic, vegan holiday extravaganza, where Matt and I discuss our wish lists and favorite seasonal films, and share what we plan to cook and drink over the holidays.  Here's 2015's and 2016's. This year, things are a little different. With Matt's family traveling to Spain for the holiday, the conversation shifted towards traditions, travel, and dealing with family expectations. But don't you worry, Matt still shares his (ridiculous, if you ask me) Christmas movie list. So light up the fire, pour yourself a Christmas beer, and enjoy this year's holiday celebration.

The Guilt Free Running Slump (Rewind)
39:13
Every runner goes through slumps. Life gets busy, the weather gets hot (or cold), and whatever “running mojo” looks like to you, you’ve lost it. I’m no different, and I’m in the midst of a slump now: the training I had planned for a fall marathon never really got off the ground, and my running for the past few months has been next to non-existent. But something is different this time. This time, I don’t feel guilty about it. Somehow (meditation, maybe?) I’m at peace with the slump. I’m not beating myself up for letting the marathon goal slip away. I can see this for what it is, without judgement, and in a strange way I feel free — with a newfound excitement about other types of training. As it turns out, co-host Doug is dealing with a running slump of his own. Except he’s one week away from a 50K, and his training looks a lot different from mine. In today’s episode, we talk about our slumps and how we’re embracing the lack of motivation instead of fighting it. If you’ve been in a slump recently, or you’re in one right now, this one is for you.

Small Steps, Cold Showers, and Conscious Parenting with Sid Garza-Hillman
01:10:44
Thumb through just about any parenting book and nearly every chapter will focus on the child. But that's the wrong approach, according to Sid Garza-Hillman.

In today's episode, we sit down with Sid to discuss his brand new book Raising Healthy Parents, and why a vegan nutritionist felt called to write a parenting book. Oh, and because it's Sid, we also talk about cold showers. Love that guy.

How Will Clean Meat Impact the Vegan Movement?
57:28

Are Vegan Documentaries Good for the Movement?
51:11
Over the past few years our Netflix feeds have seen several high-profile documentaries designed to push the vegan movement. They promote health, environmental, and animal rights benefits in a way books or articles simply can't. But these documentaries have also sparked blow-back both online and off. So it begs the question: Are vegan documentaries good for the movement? We try to answer that question in today's episode.

The State of the Vegan Movement (And What We Can Do Better)
53:59
The state of the vegan movement is ... As we recorded today's episode, how I completed that sentence began to vary. In my opinion, there's little doubt that veganism is becoming more mainstream and going plant-based gets easier by the day. But does that mean the movement is strong? In today's episode, Matt and I depart from our typical health and nutrition banter to discuss where veganism is right now as a movement. We're not approaching this topic from a place of authority -- neither of us can claim to be anywhere near authorities on the subject -- but instead as two dudes in the middle of it. We rave about all the new vegan options and foods, but also attempt to challenge each other on how we can do better as a community. Oh, and I make a terrible analogy using kale, so there's that too. Here's what we talk about in this episode: The state of the vegan movement is ... Is veganism more popular, or are diets in general more widely accepted? How to talk to someone on the Paleo diet The pros and cons of meat-like meat alternatives What we can do better as a movement

How Not to Be the Punchline of the Vegan-at-a-Dinner-Party Joke (Rewind)
55:05
This Thursday we have another Throwback Rewind of one of our most popular episodes. NMA Radio co-host Doug recently attended a bachelor party, where while discussing meals for the weekend, it became clear that one of the guys wasn’t comfortable with Doug’s being a vegan.      "We’re all having meat. What are you going to eat, Doug? Carrots?" We’ve all been in this situations like this. It’s that moment at a restaurant, party, or dinner when all of a sudden people realize you’re vegan or vegetarian, and don’t know how to react. Before you can even say a word, someone gets defensive or pokes fun of your diet.  So what do you do? Usually, we react in one of two ways. Either:      1) You use it as an opportunity to make a point, defend your diet choice, and maybe even convince a few people, or     2)You brush it off and keep the mood light, in an attempt to make veganism appear as normal as possible.  I’m not saying either of these better than the other; I respect both choices. But I know the one that I choose, almost every single time.  In today’s episode, we discuss these two approaches, and how Doug and I handle the uncomfortable situations at parties, with family, and while out to dinner. We also share the rest of Doug’s story, and how by the end of the weekend, he got that same guy to take interest in the vegan diet.

Rethinking Morning Routines
50:36
There's no shortage of morning routine recommendations on the internet ... including an older episode of No Meat Athlete Radio. And it typically goes something like this: Do what I do and you'll be more productive, creative, and cool. But that's not how self improvement works. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to habits, nor is there one for morning routines. Today Matt and I share our new take on the morning routine, and the habits and structures we think work (and why other approaches might not).

Make Time for Yourself (And Make Yourself Happy)
53:43
Matt is a wanna-be chess nerd. That's right, when Matt isn't working on No Meat Athlete, hanging with his family, cooking, or going to the gym, he's geeking out on chess.com tutorials. And that's probably exactly what he should be doing. It's easy to get so caught up in work, family, and other obligations that you never make time for yourself, and when you don't make time to do things that bring you joy, it's hard to bring joy into the other things you do. In today's episode, Matt and I discuss the importance of hobbies, what makes for a good hobby, and why we think they're so important.

Matt's Tony Robbins Experience
45:54
When I hear the name Tony Robbins, I think of a giant dude, dancing crowds, and walking on coals. And I think of Matt, who for as long as I can remember has been singing his praises. After all, it was a Tony Robbins event that inspired Matt to go vegetarian and start this blog (which has gone on to became his business and my employer). But even after reading the posts and hearing the stories, I'm still not convinced Tony does anything more than put on a show. In today's episode, just a few weeks after Matt and his wife Erin returned from a 6-day Tony Robbins experience, we hash that out. Can a Tony Robbins event help you become your best self, or is it nothing more than a scam?

Is It Ever Okay to Not Do Your Best?
53:22
"If you're not going to do it right, don't do it at all." That's the code Matt and I both try to live by most of the time. But throughout December, with Matt sick and me "functioning" on new-dad sleep, our healthy habits ... well let's just say they haven't been on point. In today's episode we discuss when -- if ever -- it's okay to not do your best, and when it's better to simply let a habit, hobby, or routine go completely.

15 Rules to Live By (Update and Replay)
58:52
After a long weekend at the Remedy Food Festival, Matt has lost his voice. To help save his voice (and your ears) from further damage, we decided to revisit on of our favorite episodes ... the 15 rules we live by. When it comes to food and fitness habits, I don’t think rules are a good thing. Guidelines, sure, but without a little wiggle room, it’s too easy to throw up your hands and give in when your willpower runs dry. But when it comes to living a meaningful life — and ensuring that my system for managing it works — I find it’s actually easier to be less flexible … and to follow a set of real, actual rules. In today’s episode, we share the 15 rules we live by, the firm boundaries that help us live the lives we want and find balance and happiness. They might not all be for you, but I hope you’ll find a nugget or two to add to your own set of rules for living.

In today's episode, Doug and I discuss that challenge, and why most big changes end up not feeling all that big once you make them. Heads up: There was something wrong with Doug's mic. We apologize for the sound quality, and will have it resolved before the next episode.

The real story is about mindfulness, letting go of pain and discomfort, and how to handle an injury that leaves you unable to run.

59:29
For something so simple, running brands sure put out a lot of gear. In today's episode, we wade through all the junk, and take a look at the running gear we actually use. We discuss our favorite shoes, clothing, recovery tools, hydration equipment, electronics, and oh so much more.

The Guilt Free Running Slump
36:09
Several months ago, I announced my marathon comeback. My intention was to focus on the marathon distance for the first time since qualifying for Boston. Fast forward to today, and instead of being in week 8 of an intense training cycle, I'm hardly running at all. I'm officially in a slump. But you know what? I don't feel guilty about it. For the first time -- maybe ever -- I'm not beating myself up for failing at my original goal. I'm at peace with this lack of motivation and training. As it turns out, NMA Radio co-host Doug is dealing with his own running slump of sorts, only he's 1 week away from a 50k, and his training looks a lot different than mine. In today's episodes, we talk about those slumps, what we're dealing with, and how we're embracing the lack of motivation instead of fighting it.

Our 100th Episode: A Look Back and Forward
47:33
Can you believe it? 100 Episodes! Things started off a little rough, but we've officially hit our stride and the 100th episode. In today's episode co-host Doug and I share some of the secrets behind this show, where we've struggled, and the lessons we've learned. We also look forward towards new ideas and changes coming in the next year.

All About Supplements!
45:34
Do vegans need to take supplements? In today's episode, it's all about the supplements. Which you need (if any) on a whole foods plant-based diet, and what you're already getting naturally. Plus you'll get the low-down on what we take ourselves and why.

Staple Foods in the Vegan Athlete's Pantry
56:23
Today it's all about the staples. For a new vegan, it's easy to find cookbooks and recipes that guide you through dinners, but what about a simple bowl of cereal, toast, or cup of tea?  With an increasingly large number of vegan substitutes available, it can feel overwhelming choosing the right vegan substitutes. Never mind knowing if your favorite bread or pasta is actually 100% plant-based. Inspired by a listener question, co-host Doug and I dig deep into our pantries and refrigerators, and discuss the most common staples you'll find in our vegan kitchens.

The Most Important Daily Habits
45:09
When you wake up each morning, you're forced to take care of a number of "most-dos." You must take the kids to school, answer emails, and go to work, for example. Most of us get so caught up in the most-dos that we neglect the important habits that could really shape our day. Habits for physical and mental health. Habits for happiness and gratitude. Habits that only take a few minutes to do, but still get brushed aside. In today's episode, Doug and I discuss our most important daily habits, and why we fight so hard to keep them.

What We Eat on a Typical Day
44:06
Over the past 95 episodes, we've talked a lot about the ideal diet, and ways Matt and I try to find it. Between the two of us, we've experimented with fruitarian, raw, juicing, no oil, and minimal processed foods. But while experimenting and talking about an ideal way of eating is fun and inspiring, it isn't always practical. And without the context, we've come to realize that it almost feels unattainable or too far out there for many of you, the listeners. So today Matt and I get real. We share exactly what we eat throughout a typical day. Not because it's perfect, but to give you a little context on where we're coming from. And hopefully to demonstrate that a whole foods plant-based diet isn't all kale and shots of wheatgrass.

How to Save Money While Eating Healthy and Vegan
27:54
It's no secret that local, organic, healthy food can get expensive. Add in fake meats and fancy spices or oils, and your new vegan diet is maxing out credit cards. But even when you shop at the hippest grocery stores, it doesn't have to be that pricy. You can eat on the cheap, and still get all the great whole foods your body is craving. In today's episode, we discuss our strategies for saving money on food, and which foods we avoid because of the price tag.

14 Things We Wish We Knew Before Going Vegan
36:49
A few years ago Matt wrote a post called 10 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Went Vegan. It was a reflection on his first 2 years as a vegan, and all the things he wish someone had told him before he made that change. Now that I'm inching towards my 2-year anniversary, we revisit that topic together and compare lists. When you make a giant change, like switching to a vegan diet or training for your first marathon, there's nothing that can fully prepare you for the experience. But in our cases, there are a few things we wish someone had told us -- or advice we wish we would have actually taken in -- before making the switch to a plant-based diet. In today's episode, we discuss those lessons, how they've impacted our experience so far, and why some of Matt's have changed since his original post.

How to GAIN Weight on a Plant-Based Diet
27:40
Most of us have no trouble losing weight on a whole foods plant-based diet, but is it possible to actually put weight and muscle on? Ever since college I've wanted to put on weight, and had success for awhile when I still ate meat. After going vegan, I immediately lost weight, and thought I could never bulk up again. Then I met guys like Robert Cheeke and others who were putting on muscle without the meat. So I set out to give it another try. In today's episode, co-host Doug and I discuss why someone might want to put on weight, whether or not it's healthy in the long run, and how to do it on a vegan diet.

Our Vegan Trip to Italy
28:27
My wife Erin and I are back stateside after a vegan tour of Italy. In today's episode, we talk about our favorite moments of the trip, what we thought of the food, and why we think it's alright to indulge a bit on vacation. Note: Because we're still on the road, the sound quality of this episode isn't very good. Bare with us another week and things will be back to normal!

Small Steps or Massive Action? The Best Way to Make A Change
45:42
Have conventional habit change methods been wrong this whole time? A few weeks ago I wrote about a major mistake I see person after person making as they try to start a new habit. They either go all in, dive head first into massive change, and burn out just as reality starts to set in. Or they take the small steps approach. They follow a slow, arduous process of tiny steps. With no major breakthroughs or results, the motivation simply disappears. My approach is different. I think you can do both. Instead of choosing massive action or small steps, you can bridge the gap between the two, and create a method that provides immediate results, and the structure to make it stick. In today's episode we discuss that philosophy, how it's the only process that has worked for me, and the steps you should take for lasting habit change.

Running on Vacation - is it worth it?
31:36
  Right as this episode goes live, I'll be landing in Rome, Italy, where my wife Erin and I are taking part in a vegan tour. It's guaranteed to be a blast.   But this week also marks Week 2 of my official marathon training plan. So it begs the question:   Should I be running while on vacation?   If you’re a regular listener to the podcast, it should come as no surprise that NMA Radio co-host Doug and I approach this answer differently. He loves running, and would do it all the time. Including on vacation.   I, on the other hand, don't. And I prefer my vacations free of stresses like a running routine.   In today's episode, Doug and I argue our different point of views, and discuss the pros and cons of keeping up a running routine. Doug also shares his tips for planning a running vacation … the vacation he looks forward to most each summer.

The Non-Running-Geek's Guide to Running Form
36:33
As young children, chasing friends on the playground, screaming through sprinklers, and rushing down the first base line in tee-ball, we were runners. Runners much more concerned with having fun than running form. At the time form didn't matter. Now that we're adults running harder and longer, small form adjustments can prevent injuries, make us faster, and burn less energy. The problem is, adjusting your form can be difficult. And confusing. Cadence, arm swing, foot-strike -- We've all heard the terms, but what do they really mean? In today's episode, NMA Radio co-host Doug and I break down proper running form in a way that's approachable to all runners. Even non-running-geeks like ourselves.

3 Ways We're Not Perfect (Actually Way More Than That)
28:01
I run a blog, host a podcast, and am working on my second book, all based on habits most people find challenging. I must be perfect at those habits, right? Wrong. When you read someone's blog, or listen to them share stories on a podcast, it's easy to assume they don't struggle with the same issues you do. The truth is that none of those people are perfect, they just try to look flawless in order for you to take them seriously. In today's episode, NMA Radio co-host Doug and I spill the beans. We admit that as much as we like to pretend we're flawless, we're not. We fight temptation and discipline just like you.

6 Rules to Follow for Your First Trail Run
37:43
Trail running is intimidating. There's no way around it. You could get lost or hurt. You have to deal with uneven footing and steep climbs. It's dirty, wet, and exposed. But for co-host Doug, it's the only reason he's still running at all. And all those factors I listed earlier? They're much less of an issue that most beginner's think. Doug runs almost exclusively on mountain trails, is the author of the Trail Runner's System, and gets more pleasure from playing in the woods than anyone I know. When we decided to record an episode on trail running for beginners, it seemed like a no-brainer to follow his lead. In today's episode, I ask Doug to share the 6 most important rules new trail runners should follow to stay safe and easily transition from the roads to the trails.

Phil Maffetone on Why We Should Run Slow
41:49
One of the most frequently asked questions Jason and I get at Run Your BQ is our opinion of the Maffetone Method. You may have heard of Dr. Phil Maffetone and his unusual training philosophy, which put simply suggests that slow running will make you faster. It sounds a little out there, but since first reading one of his books a few years ago, I've heard from complete beginners and elite runners who have all had success training with the Maffetone Method. Even Rich Roll used it while training for the Epic 5. So in this most recent training cycle, which I hope will lead to a marathon comeback, that I've integrated many of these ideas into my own training. Today I sit down with Phil Maffetone to discuss his approach to training, and learn more about why you need to run slow in order to run fast.

How Not to Be the Punchline of the Vegan-at-a-Dinner-Party Joke
48:04
NMA Radio co-host Doug recently attended a bachelor party, where while discussing meals for the weekend, it became clear that one of the guys wasn’t comfortable with Doug’s being a vegan.      "We’re all having meat. What are you going to eat, Doug? Carrots?" We’ve all been in this situations like this. It’s that moment at a restaurant, party, or dinner when all of a sudden people realize you’re vegan or vegetarian, and don’t know how to react. Before you can even say a word, someone gets defensive or pokes fun of your diet.  So what do you do? Usually, we react in one of two ways. Either:      1) You use it as an opportunity to make a point, defend your diet choice, and maybe even convince a few people, or     2)You brush it off and keep the mood light, in an attempt to make veganism appear as normal as possible.  I’m not saying either of these better than the other; I respect both choices. But I know the one that I choose, almost every single time.  In today’s episode, we discuss these two approaches, and how Doug and I handle the uncomfortable situations at parties, with family, and while out to dinner. We also share the rest of Doug’s story, and how by the end of the weekend, he got that same guy to take interest in the vegan diet.

Which Type of Runner Are You?
37:09
The Old-Timer. The Selfie Runner. The Kicker. We've all seen these runners and thought to ourselves, "I don't ever want to be that guy." I hate to break it to you, but you might be that guy. Or one of the nearly 20 other runner types we discuss in today's podcast. It all started while flipping through Mark Remy's The Runner's Rule Book, where I came across his Types of Runners list. The funny, lighthearted list not only takes aim at the obviously obnoxious runners, but also takes a jab at just about every single one of us. Doug and I decided to share that list, plus a few of our own, in an attempt to laugh at ourselves, and have a little fun with a sport we usually take so seriously. Doug admits that he's the "Ultra Guy," and as much as I wish it weren't true, I admit that I've been at least 5 types of runner over the past few years.  Which type are you?

Chef AJ and the Secret to Losing Weight
01:06:14
A few weeks ago I shared an interview with my wife Erin on her recent success with Chef AJ's weight loss program. That episode was the most downloaded release in No Meat Athlete Radio history, and the feedback and questions about the program have been pouring in. So to help answer those questions, and dive deeper into the philosophies behind the program, I asked Chef AJ herself to join me for an interview. During this episode you not only get to witness firsthand Chef AJ's fiery personality, but we discuss what it means to eat left of the red line, why eliminating oil isn't the extreme step most people think, and exactly how Erin lost all that baby weight.

Alex and Jeanette Ruiz, Leaders of NMA Miami, on Picking Yourself and Making Change in the World
48:48
Hanging on the wall in my office, so that I see it every time I start a workday, is a one-page essay by Seth Godin, titled "Pick Yourself."This simple phrase, to me, represents the enormous opportunity offered to each of us by our hyper-connected world. There are almost no "gatekeepers" anymore: if you want to be a leader, an artist, a change-maker, you don't need to wait around and hope you get picked.Instead, pick yourself. Start doing the thing you want to do and use the incredible tools -- blogs, podcasts, YouTube channels, social media -- now at your disposal to amplify and deliver your message to the people who need to hear it.This is exactly what Alex and Jeanette Ruiz have done as leaders of the successful NMA Miami group. At a time in their life when they were considering a move to another city for lack of plant-based culture in Miami, the opportunity to step up and lead their local movement came along.Their success in connecting with like minds made them hungry for more change, and they've taken their role as leaders in this movement a step further with a new podcast, called Planted in Miami, which was featured in iTunes' "New and Notable" section last week.In this episode of No Meat Athlete Radio, I talk with Alex and Jeanette about the success of NMA Miami and the steps they've taken to achieve early success with their podcast. This in hopes, of course, that it inspires you to find your voice in this movement, and to pick yourself.

Feel Better, Do More
34:35
"How have you been?""Good! Very busy."That common answer to what is most likely the most common question, makes me sad. As a society, we seem to idealize being busy. If we're busy, we must have a purpose. I've never been good at being busy, which is probably why I'm not cut out for the corporate world. I like to have time -- lots of time -- to do the things I like doing, not the stuff I feel like I have to do. That's what I talk about in today's podcast. How to build a lifestyle that creates both more time and energy to enjoy that time. Many traditional time management systems don't work for me, but the approach I take, and share in this episode, allows me have the time to do what I want. And yes, avoid feeling busy just to feel busy.

Our Favorite Running Hacks
40:27
Have you ever thought to yourself that your running habit would finally stick if it were just a little easier? As a husband, business owner, and father of two with little time and plenty of obligations, I'll do anything I can to make running easier. That doesn't mean I cheat my way out of the difficult days (I believe that's impossible with running), but it does mean I take advantage of easy tricks that make a difference. It turns out Doug's the same way. In today's episode Doug and I pulled together our favorite hacks, genius ones if you ask me, in hopes that they'll remove a few obstacles from your running routine. Because if you were given the opportunity to make something inherently difficult a little simpler, why wouldn't you?

10 Simple Guidelines for Eating Healthy
42:15
Here at No Meat Athlete, we aren't fans of following strict diet rules. We believe in a little flexibility when it comes to eating. But if there was an official No Meat Athlete diet, these 10 guidelines would be it. Guidelines for how to eat healthy on a daily basis, with enough wiggle room to make it sustainable for the long term. In today's episode, Doug and I discuss those healthy eating guidelines, and exactly why building in that flexibility is important.

The Irony of Commitment
46:32
What if I told you that by limiting yourself with a strong commitment, you're actually freeing yourself up to be more creative. You'd think I'm crazy, right? But it's true! Constraints on what you can do actually help artists, writers, and even runners. Which is why I recently posted a set of new commitments on the blog. A shiny new running commitment, and a somewhat scary commitment to you listeners. In today's episode, Doug and I talk about the power of commitment, and how to actually succeed once that commitment has been made. Which was all good for me to hear, because the last thing I want to do is fail in front of you guys.

Doug Wins His 24 Hour Ultra And How To Train In The Heat
48:08

In today's episode we hear a few battle stories from the race, what he learned, and how he managed the monotony of a loop course. And as summer approaches in the northern hemisphere, so does the heat. After the race discussion Doug and I dive into strategies and tips for training and racing on those hottest of summer days.
