David Reaboi is an author and expert in National security & political warfare matters, and a jazz afficianado, but for the Longevitiy Lifestyle, we talk about fitness.
David is an amateur bodybuilder and fitness buff, and I asked him on the podcast because I wanted to talk about his health and fitness transformation. What it really takes to make dramatic changes in your physique, and learn some of the tricks, supplements, and well, pharmaceutical options that can help improve your health. We have a fun conversation, and I learned a lot… and it was a fun departure to have someone on to talk about their “healthy hobby” of bodybuilding.

Udo Erasumus is a pioneer in the health and wellness industry. He has sold over 250,000 copies of books, including Fats That Heal Fats That Kill, and sold and distributed 25,000,000 bottles from his Udo's Choice product line in 50+ countries
After being poisoned by pesticides in 1980, Udo turned his passion and attention to health. He obsessively studied literature, created a method for making good oils with health in mind, developed the first ever flax seed oil, authored several books on the effects of oils on health: Fats and Oils; Fats That Heal Fats That Kill; Choosing the Right Fats; Omega 3 Cuisine; and enthusiastically educated the public in about 40 countries on the effects of oils on health and disease.
In 1992, Udo developed healthy whole foods supplements for dogs, cats, and horses. In 1994, he developed an oil blend that is both better balanced and more effective than flax oil. He followed this with probiotics blends and digestive enzyme blends in 1997, and a year later developed prebiotic fiber and green blends.
“All suffering — including depression, insecurity, anxiety and physical disease — is a result of us never learning how to love, value and be true to ourselves on a daily basis. Our struggles and negative thinking are caused by us rejecting our true self, making our feelings wrong, and constantly trying to please others in exchange for love, acceptance, attention, approval and security. This daily self-destruction, which is passed down from generation to generation, breaks our heart, creates toxic stress, weakens our immune system and leads us into unhealthy personal and professional situations. We each can overcome the hurt, anger, fear and guilt within us by learning how to care for our body, heart and mind now. Understanding how to be accepting, honest and kind with ourselves is the most direct path to feeling well, fulfilling our purpose, enjoying our lives and loving fully before we die. It's up to each of us to break the cycle of self-harm and suffering for ourselves and future generations.”
Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. You may have seen his (or his company's) previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals.
Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
