Greens is about sure muslims. Chris i'm originally from new zealand. Which left me with the monica north. America of chris deke end. I am the proud founder and ceo of a company called athletic greens. This company was originally formed out of a search for a solution to my own problem. Which was that. I wasn't absorbing neutrons properly. And i ended up basically going on a journey to sort of addressing health problems that led to a clinic in phoenix spending a ton of money doing every blood stool saliva test. You can possibly imagine to have a group very smart people. Tell me that look You just don't appear to be absorbing nutrients properly which was a shock to me. Because up until that time. I thought i'd been doing pretty much everything right as it related to. How approach health nutrition and how it approach supplementation and sort of led me to the drawing board to think through an rethink through everything. I thought i knew about nutrition and health and everything else so long story short. I'm customer number. One of what has become a very popular way of removing the fiction from covering nutritional basis every day without cornerstone product grains which. I'm excited to be a part of and we've of lawrence two thousand nine two thousand ten. The proper film launch early two thousand eleven and since then have gone through fifty directions to continually. Look at how can we deliver what. Wait what we consider to be. Sort of that premium. Bist centralist approach to cover nutritional basis every day. Love it so. Tell me more about why. Your body couldn't absorb nutrients well enough. We'll so i have a background. In health and exercise. I studied sport science degree at open university. Which i dropped out of with two classes to go to stop my first business. I'm an entrepreneur through through and have just kicked this lifelong passion around health and fitness. And i was falling. What's considered the nineteen ten approach which was basically. Look if you do everything right. Non-extendible time the other ten percent meta too much and i'd had a few significant number of sort of respiratory tract fictions over the years and the committed to grow infrequency took that i was taking antibiotics for something three to four times a week. And i think. I had a couple of different Forces all collide at once. But at the end of the day i had very few good. Bacteria had a really torn up gi system. And i was eating very significant levels of both protein in a variety of vegetables and supplementing. With what i thought at the time was a great multivitamin and i ended up finding that i was in the eighth to twelfth percentile on a lot of the central bottoms as minerals and even mino- essence. And so when these guys came back from that testing and said hey digital's none of them. Why this right. We have some of these minerals in the twelfth percentile I was really shocked. And just turn out have all sorts of problems traditionally with the gut and the solution from these guys was to say. Look west put you on a basic limitation diet and they gave me at the time one hundred dollars a day customized my blood bike in st nutrition regime. And like i said. I saw two vessels taking fifty horse stalls a day and i just realized it must be a better way so this way back then led me on this journey to seek out experts on. I never claimed to be the sort of exit decide. Look at what good nutrition really was and start to understand things like what got health what is by ability y generally do you wanna get nutrition nutrients as much as possible from food. What food quality is some of these other dynamics at the lead me on a journey that led to us creding athletic rim. Yeah i mean you believe that you can achieve your best self. without nurturing. Your body with writing attrition right so in your opinion then after you've talked to all those experts what the right nutrition look like for me. I think for every human. There's a couple of different pieces. And i think we all want to cover off most basic nutrient basis an never put out any Around sort of supplementation being anything other than a path towards optimization i think food is i and you should always focus on food but in terms of what is great nutrition. My general framework is pretty simple. I think you want to eat to maintain your blood sugar levels and a healthy range. I think you want to eat a diet that for you does not lead to any sort of dynamic where you're very inflammatory environment. And i think you want to eat a sort of respite of metros in total calories that match your lifestyle and where that in line you wanna make sure. You're focused on food quality. Health quality pieces Seems to be of looked so often. And his principal or nutrient density and then the other variables around william micronutrients are coming from and the quality of and sort of how much cobb some extra protein. How much fat. That's a lot of those are gonna come down to individual preference potentially and then also just how do you live your life that attrition demands of someone who's on a bike aggressively training for two to france.

"Off nestle relationship that way then i met chris as well we started to work together in that basically led us to this conversation we touch on chris's upbringing and how his experiences traveling around the world with his family shaped him and it is awesome what they did and ultimately how that was the impetus for the creation of athletic greens there were times where chris was close to broke living on a diet of rice and beans just to get by but chris stayed the course and he believed in his mission and his vision and to do it the right way with highest ethics in its rat is just flat out right it's exactly what you'd hope and we worked to unpack how how did he do that what were the skills that he used the strategies employed to stay the course even when he was completely broke and he refused to alter the quality of the product to stay mission minded in a lot of people were telling him as it comes out in this conversation like just downgrade the quality and sell it for cheaper price and he said no that's not how it's going to work and i've got incredible respect for that that's exactly how integrity works and high character works and when you build that around product that you believe in i wanna say good things happen not always though because there are other things that take place that expose businesses and practices that are unforeseen even but this is a celebration of a product that i love as well as a person that i think is incredible how they've approached life so out this conversation is buyers you in that it is possible to do things the right way live with integrity and all the right ways and i don't know i love the idea when business and mission and wellness and potential when they all hub together and we're able to create communities in products and services that are working to make i don't know it sounds cheesy but make the world better you know and like that's really of hit in one last thing support athlete greens and their mission while you're at it go over to athletic greens dot com slash finding mastery and check out the offer that they put together for us in our community and with that let's get right.
