Learn More About Gary at PrimalPowerMethod.com

What started out as a conversation on primal nutrition with Gary Collins also led to a pretty deep discussion on entrepreneurship.   Gary really is an awesome guy and has become a great friend.  I think you will really enjoy or discussion today.

Gary Collins, MS was born in Southern California and raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition and fitness for over 30 years.

A self-declared sports junkie, he participated and excelled in various organized sports since the age of seven. He is extremely passionate about the pursuit of optimal health in mind, body and soul. Collins has two goals: To make being healthy as simple and enjoyable as possible and to give people the truth.

Collins’ background is very unique and brings a much-needed perspective to today’s fields of both health and nutrition. He holds an AS degree in Exercise Science, BS in Criminal Justice and a MS in Forensic Science.

After an exciting career in military intelligence Collins worked for the U.S. State Department, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a Special Agent. His career took him around the world and gave him a unique perspective on not only how the United States, but the world is affected by our food, drug and healthcare policies.

The highlights of his career took him from protecting some of the most powerful people in the world to investigations involving the biggest tainted pet food death case in the U.S. to the intricate dealings of one of the largest counterfeit prescription drug rings in the world. He has often said, “If American’s really knew what was going on in the area of healthcare and nutrition in this country, they would be appalled.”

It can be safely said no one in the health and fitness industry has the inside knowledge and background that Collins has. He is a hybrid of a high intensity health expert and an investigator rolled into one.

An author and college professor, Mr. Collins advises specialist and is a consultant for high-level organized sports programs and gyms. He is currently an exercise and nutrition consultant for the San Diego City College Men’s Basketball team, one of the most successful Junior College sports programs in California. Some of his other clients include college football players for high profile programs, to include Purdue and Kansas State University.

In addition to his published articles and Primal Power Method Series, his total lifestyle reboot, Factor X: The Last Health Program You Will Ever Need, blows the lid off of conventional wellness expectations and is essential for every American seeking better health. Collins is also a contributor to the Brink of Freedom online magazine and Paleo Magazine.

Episode-1057- Zero to Prepared – Fast, Simple and Low Cost- Part 2

Today we cover part two of going from zero to prepared.  If you haven’t listened to part one of this series yet, you really should do so first.  You will notice that title of this episode ends in “low cost” vs. “cheap”.

As a marketer there is a rule, if you can eliminate a word do it, but that won’t work here.  Cheap sets the wrong tone for what we will discuss today, we are talking about protecting your life, your property and the lives of those you love, one doesn’t go “cheap” with such things.

Today may seem like a basic beginners show but I will bet even the seasoned prepper will gain something and if nothing else will be better able to help others get started.  Prepping doesn’t have to be complex or expensive, what it must be is specific to a set of goals, today we talk about simple ways to make that happen.

Join Me Today as We Discuss…

Episode-418- Audience Feedback for 4-16-10

I still am sitting on a huge back log of questions and inputs from my week away so I though I would do some catching up for you today.  Additionally some recent shows have provoked a few questions/concerns/objections that I thought I would handle today as well.

I have also been asked on the forum to do a show called “The Best of the Tin Foil Hat Brigade”, discussing the possible reality behind some conspiracy theories.  That may be a bit much for an entire show if such theories are not your thing so today I will pick one or two from that thread and give you my opinion (note the word OPINION) on them.

Tune in today to discuss…

  • Barter is reportable as income to the IRS – SO WHAT!
  • Do I “hate government” and want all things turned over to the corporations
  • Is there anything at all behind the 9-11 Truther Movement
  • Is now a good time to buy gold and silver given their current pricing
  • How much longer will vacuum sealed seeds store than conventionally stored
  • Fluoride is a toxin?  Yes!
  • Buying metal online or locally and the sales tax effect
