From unhealthy, unhappy and addicted… to one of the fittest humans on earth.
That’s the incredible journey of today’s podcast guest, the remarkable Rich Roll. He’s here on the show (for the second time!) to share the story of his success, the role of plant based eating in his mind-blowing transformation, the secrets of his conscious relationship, and how we can ALL unleash our full potential — no matter where you’re starting from.
Named one of the “25 Fittest Men in the World” by Men’s Fitness and “The Guru of Reinvention” by Outside, Rich is a globally renowned ultra-endurance athlete, wellness advocate, bestselling author, husband and father of four. Rich shares his inspirational story of addiction, redemption and optimal health in his #1 bestselling memoir ‘Finding Ultra’ and the cookbook & lifestyle guides ‘The Plantpower Way’ and ‘The Plantpower Way: Italia’, which he co-authored with his wife Julie Piatt.
Rich has been featured on CNN, on the cover of Outside magazine and been profiled everywhere from The New York Times to The Wall Street Journal. His latest book, ‘Voicing Change’, features timeless wisdom and inspiration from the wildly popular Rich Roll Podcast, one of the top 100 podcasts in the world with over 100 million downloads (and one of my personal faves!).
It was such a treat to sit down with this thoughtful, inspiring human and hear his hard-won wisdom on what it takes to turn your life around 180 degrees and bounce back from rock bottom. The strategies he shares are so smart and so practical, I know you’re going to walk away feeling pumped to take action and excited to see how simple it can be to experience massive, life-changing results.
So if you want to discover how the food on your plate can trigger huge transformation, how to connect more deeply with your partner (and fall more in love than ever before), and how to leverage the deep reservoirs of untapped potential inside you, then pop in those earbuds… this one’s for you.
