benefits of a plant based diet for men

The Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet for Men with Fraser Bayley

The plant-based lifestyle seems to be everywhere lately, but is it really possible to maintain our bodies without animal protein? Won’t we feel tired and hungry all the time? What about our libido and testosterone levels?

Today’s discussion will reveal the surprising benefits of a plant-based lifestyle for men. Our guest is Fraser Bayley. He has founded Veg Up with his wife, Lauren, and together they help people cut through the confusion to achieve peak performance, an amazing body, and insane mental clarity on a plant-based diet.

You will hear how a plant-based diet can radically change your bloodwork, your energy levels, and your psychological wellbeing. You will also learn how being the healthiest dad you can be will make you more available for your kids while setting an example that will prime them for a healthy adult life.

Fraser Bayley

Fraser was a former butcher back in Auckland, New Zealand before he left the industry to study Nutrition, Human Structure & Function and Personal Training at the University of Auckland and Auckland University of Technology.

Coming from a former life of severe mental health issues, Fraser has spent the past 15 years deeply immersed in psychology & the human mind. Being an INFJ on the Myers-Briggs personality test, he seeks to understand the human mind as much as possible! These concepts are heavily woven into how he teaches their students all around the world.

He enjoys nomadic living & travel in their RV, hiking & outdoors, reading & learning from people from all walks of life.

Getting Started with Intermittent Fasting

Getting Started with Intermittent Fasting


It’s 2020, and we’re all pumped about taking action on our health and fitness goals. Intermittent fasting is getting a huge amount of attention, not just for weight loss, but for anti-aging, disease prevention, and mental sharpness.

Getting started with intermittent fasting is challenging mentally and physically, but in this show you will learn the benefits that make it all worth it.

Today we have Joel Staley from Dads Who Lift on the show. He helps busy parents turn their bodies into fat-burning machines. He tells us what happens to our bodies when we fast, how to break into a fasting routine, and what results to expect.

Intermittent Fasting Benefits

  • Better at preserving muscle than calorie deprivation
  • Gives your digestive system a break
  • Triggers autophagy, the recycling of old cells
  • Increases mental sharpness
  • Puts your body into ketosis to burn fat
  • Regulates hormones
  • Stimulates human growth hormone

How to Get Anything You Want Tony Stephan

How to Get Anything You Want with Tony Stephan

What if you could have anything you want? Sounds crazy, right? Here’s the truth—you CAN have anything you want. The problem is we run away from our fears instead of running toward our dreams. We shrink from adversity, hard work, and the unknown. The worst part about it is, this is what we show to our children.

Our guest today is Tony Stephan. He is a registered dietician and nutrition coach who’s been featured on Fox News, NBC, Huff Post, and Women’s Health Magazine. His childhood was full of hardship and tragedy. Anyone would’ve understood if he felt sorry for himself and drifted through life, but his humble father gave him the secret to achieving what he thought was impossible. Tony Stephan’s not only going to tell us how to use this secret to get the health we want, but how to get anything we want in life.

You can have anything you want if you’re willing to work for it.

Tony Stephan

Tony Stephan’s fascination with health began when his mother left the family. She was an addict, and Tony remembers clearly the moment his father took him down to the basement to tell him his mother was gone.

Tony was only fourteen years old and he couldn’t process what was happening. His dad knew his son would be hurt and confused. His solution was simple—an old bench and a set of weights. He told Tony that he couldn’t bring his mom back, but he wanted fitness to be Tony’s outlet instead of drugs, alcohol, and crime.

A few years later, when Tony was eighteen, his mother was found on a motel room floor dead from a drug overdose. Once again, Tony channeled his anger through working out. Fitness literally saved his life—mentally, emotionally, and physically.

From then on, Tony felt compelled to help other people cope with loss and trauma through fitness. He started out as a personal trainer making $6 an hour. Then he went into debt to finish his education. He spent the last of his savings on coaching to deal with his negative, self-limiting beliefs in order to reach people on a larger scale. Now he’s twenty-eight, just married, and living his dream life. He credits his dad’s greatest piece of advice.

You can’t choose what happens to you, but you can choose the meaning of it and what you do with that meaning.

What You’ll Learn

  • How adversities are here to make you not break you
  • How Tony’s dad couldn’t give him money, college tuition, or new cars, but what he gave him something invaluable—a work ethic and the possibility that Tony wouldn’t be defined by his circumstances
  • The danger of operating out of fear
  • How approaching from a perspective of abundance gives you more motivation and impact
  • How to make the shift from scarcity to abundance
  • Understanding you have a choice every day to interpret your life in a way that serves you
  • How adversity molded him into a fighter
  • How he feels about his future kids being raised in abundance
  • Why he doesn’t want to pay for his kids’ college tuition
  • Why he will consider himself a failure if he doesn’t produce children who are not contributing members of society
  • How a lack of resources helps you become resourceful
  • Why investing in yourself is a selfless act
  • How to hack your diet with protein and fiber
  • Exactly how much protein you need at every meal
  • Why you should eat foods that rot
  • Healthy fats sources
  • The importance of creating awareness of what you’re eating daily
  • Why there’s no such thing as bad food, just bad portions
  • The myth of intermittent fasting
  • Implementing behavior-based change – adding one easily achievable new habit at a time

Hunger was the best sauce I ever received.

Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp

The Driven Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp


Why do many of us fathers neglect our health? There are two main reasons. The number one reason is guilt. We feel bad for taking time away from work and family to spend on ourselves. The second reason is money. We would have to spend more to eat healthier, join a gym, or hire a personal trainer.

But not making our health a priority is the biggest disservice to ourselves and our families.

In this episode, we have a panel discussion with Dr. Adrian Chavez of Your Nutrition Prescription and Chris Hughes from The Driven Dad. They have put together a fully-customized 8-week fitness and nutrition bootcamp for dads. We also talk to members Rashad and Mickey about what made this bootcamp unique and how it has transformed their health and their lives!
