Inspired by his best friend’s battle with cancer, Dr. Frank Merritt has engineered the fasting protocol, The 17 Hour Fast, which offers maximum benefits from a minimum fast that promotes an enriching mind, body and soul experience. Drawing on years of medical practice as well as VitalityPro research protocols developed with iconic athletes, respected nutritionists, and behavioral/exercise psychologists, The 17 Hour Fast embodies a minimum effective dose (MED) strategy harnessing powerful health and performance advantages of longer fasts while avoiding many of their pitfalls. Furthermore, The 17 Hour Fast is carefully synchronized and choreographed with diurnal/nocturnal hormone patterns, sleep hygiene, personal growth and relationship building techniques and suggested training/recovery activities to create a potent combination for success.

The 17-Hour Fast is founded on a bedrock of cutting-edge scientific data and presented in an intuitive and approachable way by Dr. Merritt and acclaimed writer Phil White (Unplugged, Game Changer, and Flight Plan).

Today we'll dive into The 17 Hour Fast and how to get started making it a habit.

In this episode you'll learn

  • Fasting as a an effective reset button
  • The power and accessibility of a minimum effective dose when it comes to a fast
  • The problem with some fasts and how that affects an individual in the long term
  • How the fast fosters accountability and sustainability
  • Easing into the fast and coming off the fast
  • The disadvantage of all the time on 24/7 news, social media, and outside influences and how the vacation night of the fast can keep that in check
  • Switching from sympathetic active mode to rest and repair parasympathetic mode

Stop. Catch your breath. Do you feel that?

Most likely right up until now, you were chasing something. Success, love, achievement, your social media feed, your to do list, or even your kids. I’m not sure where it happened in the evolution of humanity, but the vast majority of the human race seems to be in that exact frame of mind. A race.

We’re constantly in a never ending battle with time. Trying to use it wisely. Hoping for more of it. Swearing we don’t have enough.

In those moments of stress, rushing from one thing to the next in the existential race against time, our body replies. The stress-handling systems get triggered and the body prepares for response. Our digestion slows down. Blood flow goes to the extremities. Adrenaline and cortisol are produced. It’s primal as fuck. It’s our biological defense.

This can happen from the subtle stress of information overload, someone cutting you off in traffic, an argument with your partner, getting caught in comparison, or an unexpected change of plans that sends you spinning into anger, blame, and pointing the finger.

Often times, months or years go by before we ever notice that something’s wrong, or that a change is needed. We’re simply just too busy.

Clear goals and an unwavering commitment have the power to propel us forward. My guest today declared that he would win the Olympics in a sport had actually never done. Within 4 years, Jeremiah Brown went from first stroke to Olympic Medalist.

Jeremiah Brown won an Olympic silver medal as a member of the Canadian men’s eight rowing team at the London 2012 Olympic Games. A former commercial banker with a big dream, he is one of few Olympians ever to have started learning his sport only four years before winning a medal at the Olympics. After the Olympics, Jeremiah worked for the Canadian Olympic Committee as National Manager of Game Plan, an athlete wellness and transition program supporting 3000 Olympic, Paralympic, and national team athletes across more than 54 sports. Jeremiah is a Canadian sport system expert, author, keynote speaker, dad, and drummer who has played with award-winning artists. He lives in Peterborough, Canada.

His book The 4 Year Olympian: From First Stroke to Olympic Medallist tells his story from barely escaping an eight-month incarceration for robbery to ten years later standing on the podium with eight other men, now a silver medallist in rowing at the London Olympics. The story of how this fiery twenty-two-year-old without a passion—“an unlit fuse”— found himself learning the sport of rowing and four years later competing at the international level is about chasing a goal with everything you’ve got.

For me this book is about goals. What it takes to stay the course, and sticking with it even against literally painful odds.

In this episode you'll learn

  • How Jeremiah literally went from taking his first stoke to being on the Olympic National team in two years
  • Picking a sport that is more in line with your natural build
  • Knowing your own unique strengths
  • Some of the major stumbling blocks Jeremiah had to overcome to get great at the sport fast
  • Overcoming the critical voice on the way to a major goal
  • Moving forward even when you feel not good enough and lonely
  • The importance of being supported
  • Modeling pursuing your goals for your children
  • How to trust the journey
  • How our goals can shape our identity and what the transition looks like after achieving a goal
  • What the honeymoon phase post goal looks like
  • And MORE
