How do you talk to your parents about eating healthier food without sounding preachy? Dietary trends have changed so much in the past fifty years, it can be hard for anyone to keep up - much less older Americans. In this interview, Rob Dionne (Open Sky CEO) explains how he’s broached the subject with his folks. Rob grew up in a big, working-class family in New York where pasta was celebrated and no one would “tsk” you for taking seconds, or thirds. “My Mom would cook for hours and feed close to twenty people on Sundays,” he said. But when Rob’s Dad had a heart attack when he was still in high school, his family started looking more closely at what they were eating. Like many Americans, they had been told that fat was bad, carbs were good and red meat caused high cholesterol, which led to heart attacks. “By the time I was in college, I was learning more about nutrition but mostly what I knew was to stay away from cake and sweets. So I would tell my Dad to not eat that, but at that time we thought whole grain pasta was the way to go because that’s what the food industry was telling us.” Today, they’ve become more enlightened about food — eating more greens and lean meats. But Rob still sees his Dad sneaking bread at the dinner table. “Whenever I tell them to eat better food, my Mom always says ‘We do!’’ But they still eat tons of bread.” Rob believes the way to change your parents’ behavior is to remain in a constant, nonjudgemental conversation.

Voted Personal Trainer of the Year by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and recognized as the top 100 Most Influential People in Health, Ben Greenfield has helped hundreds of thousands of people lose weight and gain lean muscle mass. In this episode, Ben talks to us about how to hack your day so that you stay fit, healthy and happy. “The goal is to strike the ideal balance between health and performance,” Greenfield tells us. “Not to throw workouts at your body until you break.” It’s not hard to live a healthy life. The point is to transition from making unhealthy unconscious decisions to setting up your life so that you can only make healthy decisions. “If you start If you start your morning with yoga, you won’t have to worry about whether you’re shallow breathing all day,” he says. “Likewise, If you buy a standing desk, you won’t have to worry about sitting all day long. And if you buy healthy food and eat at home, you won’t have to worry about eating junk. “ Greenfield also has a few rules for the road to making anyone’s fitness journey a lot easier and more enjoyable: 1. Enable yourself to be moving all day long, rather than thinking about the gym as the place where that happens. 2. Eat real food that is in its whole digestible form, but don’t necessarily deny the convenience of little bio-hacks like whole food powders and bars. 3. If you’re training, don’t think of your body as a noodle you’re flicking at the wall. Instead, take into account sleep, de-stressing, recovery, your posture, your happiness, gratitude, family, all the things that go above and beyond training. 4. Use technology but don’t over-rely on it and understand that your body is affected by it. Thanks, Ben! LINKS: bengreenfieldfitness.com twitter.com/bengreenfield facebook.com/BGFitness
