In this episode of Guard the Guardians we get a punch to the face on nutrition from Power Athlete HQ's head nutritionist, Tyler Minton. Tyler takes us through how he uses nutrition to get MMA fighters and service members ready for combat and your everyday heroes ready for the rigors of their day. Learn why eating too little is detrimental to your wellbeing, and why the old school food pyramid that has us eating multiple portions of grains is leading in the wrong direction. Tyler also takes us through our paces on the paleo way of life and the fundamentals of macro nutrition.

In today's episode we speak with a 14-yr veteran of the Special Operations community.  Our friend is still in a sensitive part of the military and asked to remain anonymous.  We've honored his request.  Join us as he delves into his thoughts on combat and identifying with the enemy, the struggles that come with changing duty stations overseas, dealing with combat loss, and overcoming stress.  If you've been looking for a way to share what you've been through with your friends and family, or you are curious about what tolls combat takes, then this is the episode for you.

 

RESOURCES:

To better understand the combat mentality and the toll that it takes on our warfighters, our friend recommends a couple books from Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, US Army (Retired).  These books have been required reading for numerous conventional and Special Operations units deploying to combat zones.

  • https://www.killology.com/publications
  • On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society
  • On Combat

 

Our friend also recommends Sebastian Junger's book, Tribe, to better understand how humans form bonds and what we need to feel right in society.

 

Lastly, TED Talks are an amazing and free resource to learn about new concepts, including psychology, neurochemicals, combat, and a host of other areas.
