 A race is an excellent metaphor for life. The apostle Paul, drawing on his knowledge of the Olympic games, writes to his young protégé Timothy, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7 NIV). A successful race, like a successful life, involves a good measure of solid faith, steady effort, patient endurance, practiced discipline, and successfully coping with highs and lows.

Today, we continue our terrific LivingFuelTV series Fueling Olympic Dreams with 2012 Summer Olympic Games triathlete Manny Huerta. Building on Manny’s story from previous episodes, Manny shares the specifics of how he overcame negative self-talk and discovered how to supercharge performance in the most important race of his life.

Thirty minutes of moderate exercise, five days per week is a good goal for basic fitness.

Compare this 2½ hours of exercise over the course of a week to 70 hours of exercise over just five days—swimming a total of 12 miles, biking 560 miles, and running 131 miles. This is the extraordinary EPIC5 Challenge, held annually on five beautiful Hawaiian Islands.

Today on LivingFuelTV, we continue our popular series Super Human Feat with ultra-endurance athlete Christian Isakson. Join us as we look closely at the nutrition plan Christian used to fuel himself through this grueling event. While you may not complete an Ironman triathlon soon, what fueled Christian through the EPIC5 just might help fuel you through your day.

Exercising in 80-degree heat for 12 hours a day for 5 straight days requires a focused mind, a sound pacing plan, fortified confidence, and targeted nutrition. While we’re not likely to exercise 12 hours straight anytime soon, we all face epic challenges on various fronts each day. How do you plan for the inevitable stresses, challenges, and obstacles that life brings? Ultra-endurance athlete Christian Isakson learned much from his incredible effort at the EPIC5 Challenge in Hawaii. These lessons have direct application for us and our families. This is our subject for today’s great episode of LivingFuelTV.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

2 Timothy 4:7

Dear Living Fuel Family,

What is your “why”?

In other words, exactly why do you want to be healthy, why do you want to lose weight, or why do you want more energy?  Be specific.  Perhaps you’d like to play with your kids without tiring easily, or maybe you want that sense of accomplishment from completing a local 5K road race.  Your ‘why’ is personal to you.  It can motivate, encourage, and inspire you to do great things, and accomplish what you once thought was impossible.



Today on LivingFuelTV, we’re excited to continue our uplifting series Super Human Feat with ultra-endurance athlete Christian Isakson, 2011 finisher of the extraordinary EPIC5 Challenge event in Hawaii.  With great video footage from the scenic EPIC5 course, Christian recounts the great highs and lows he experienced and how he pushed through to the finish line.  His story is amazing, encouraging, and inspiring.  If you’re just joining us for this great series, be sure and watch the otherSuper Human Feat episodes that you’ll find below today’s episode.

You can’t exercise your way out of a bad diet.

- Christian Isakson, 2011 Finisher of the EPIC5 Challenge

Dear Living Fuel Family,

The quote above was particulary compelling from a man who exercised over twelve hours per day for five straight days in completing the astonishing  EPIC5 Challenge— five individual iron distance triathlons (swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and run 26.2 miles) totaling over 700 grueling miles in five consecutive days on five different Hawaiian islands.

Today on LivingFuelTV, we continue our fascinating and inspiring conversation with ultra-endurance athlete Christian Isakson.  How do you train for such an event?  How important is recovery after hard exercise?  How can eating with intention help fuel your dreams and goals?  Learn the answers to these questions and also how you can apply principles Christian learned to help you on your personal race to Super Health!

Today’s episode again features scenic video footage of Christian on the roads and in the waters of Hawaii.

Many of the principles that successfully fueled Christian in the EPIC5 Challenge, including the strategic use of protein and essential amino acids, can also help you achieve your weight optimization and wellness goals.  These insights are presented in my groundbreaking new book:

Packed with practical science, interesting history, and entertaining and inspiring stories, The Super Health Diet can accelerate you on your journey to Super Health.
