You will learn how sleep, gut health, stress, exercise and
community can work with or against our goals of health and
With Wired To Eat you’ll embark on a program

foods we do best (and worst) with. This will move us beyond
one-size-fits-all dietary dogma and into the modern world of

Top 3 Takeaways From The Show
- What have we got to lose from trying a diet like the Paleo
diet? If we're doing all that we can to help our health, but
nothing is helping, simply changing your focus on nutrition could
be the solution. Change can be difficult but with
Robb's 30 Day Reset
Program and 7 Day Carb Test,
we'll be able to see that making small changes to our diet really
isn't that difficult after all.
- Our modern world has stolen the positive impact of the
natural optimum foraging strategy that was passed down to us by our
ancestors. This is why we experience palate fatigue after we eat
the same processed foods over and over again. The Paleo diet brings
us back to that optimum foraging strategy so we can avoid palate
fatigue. What our bodies and minds need is a variety of healthy,
nutritious foods that can help us function better.
- Our bodies have a gut, health, and brain connection
and The 4 Pillars of Health have a great
influence over this connection. The 4 Pillars of Health are Sleep,
Movement, Community, and Nutrition. Our genetic and environmental
factors can either make it easier for us to overeat or if we're
able to balance the 4 Pillars, we can manage our nutrition.
Power Quotes From Robb Wolf
"Eat whole foods, get outside, move a lot, sleep like
you are on vacation, and surround yourself with loving
relationships." - @robbwolf
- "If we understand how our world has changed, our genetics are
wired for a different world, we can free ourselves of the shame and
missed placed morality associated with you and hearing difficulties
of change. We can finally stop bleeding ourselves for our inability
to lose weight and get healthy." - Robb Wolf
in Wired to Eat
- "We are genetically wired to eat more and move less; it’s no
wonder most people fail to achieve health and weight-loss goals."
- Robb Wolf in Wired to
- "The fact that the Paleo diet can be difficult for some people
to follow indicates that there is a mismatch between our genetics
and our current environment. Everything that made our ancestors
successful and everything that brought us to where we are today is
the reason why changing our diets can be difficult." -
Robb Wolf on why it's difficult for people to follow healthy diets
like the Paleo diet.
- "We often tell ourselves stories about why we are a certain
way. We tell ourselves why we can or cannot change. And the common
denominator with most of the stories is fear. Fear of change,
failure, or wasting time. This fear sends the logical mind
searching for credible reasons why embarking on a new solution
seems like a bad idea." - Robb Wolf in his upcoming
book, Wired to Eat about why we let fear get in
the way of our goals.
- "It's not about me, it's about the mission." -
Lauren Noel on the importance of staying true to yourself while
becoming more recognizable in the health and wellness
- "I basically adopted a low-carb, Paleo diet and it was almost
as if a switch had been flipped. For the first time in my life, I
didn't have to eat every hour and a half to two hours or face a
catastrophic hypoglycemic event. I was completely functional. I
felt good, I was leaner than I had ever been in my life, and it was
all effortless." - Robb Wolf on deciding to follow a
Paleo diet to improve his health.
- "Eat whole, unprocessed foods, get outside in the sun, move a
lot, sleep like you are
on vacation, and surround yourself with loving
relationships." - Robb Wolf in Wired to
Eat on how to stay healthy.
- "With a Paleo template, you can still add spaghetti if you want
to add it. You can have spaghetti squash and it might be a bit odd
for some people at first, but when you add the marinara sauce, it
still tastes delicious. It's the same as normal spaghetti because
you don't even taste the noodles. What you taste is the marinara
sauce on top." - Robb Wolf on how you can eat Paleo
foods and still enjoy the meal.
- "Be able to do whatever I want to do with very little
preparation or effort within the 4 pillars of health: sleep,
nutrition, movement, and community. We need to have a balance of
all 4 and if we're successful, we'll be able to do a large amount
of what we want to do with our lives." - Rob Wolf on
what wellness means to him.
- "People are not swayed into action by information. Most people
make changes in behavior due to emotion, not facts and figures.
This is not a bad thing; our emotions, coupled with our logical
intellect, is what make us human." - Robb Wolf
in Wired to Eat
