Is it possible to rewire your brain… without a brain implant?
The answer is undoubtedly yes, but the tricky part is that neuroplasticity doesn’t always go in the right direction.

- The difference between the mind and our physical brain
- How to manage depression, anxiety and negative emotions without drugs

Before You Go
Here’s a review that came in for Future Greens over at wildsuperfoods.com. Erin says…
You guys. Future Greens is AMAZING! As an avid listener of the Fat-Burning Man podcast, I’ve heard Abel talk about these for months now and wanted to give them a try because…
1) I am so bad about eating veggies, and 2) I like to vote with my dollar and support businesses that I trust to actually look out for our nation’s health instead of solely focusing on profits, and those that are helping reverse the diabesity crisis.
I honestly expected this green powder to taste terrible, and planned to take it like a shot of whiskey, but I tried it mixed in water and IT. IS. DELICIOUS!!! Seriously, it has been easy to drink this every day and I actually enjoy it.
Thanks Abel & Alyson for making it easy for me to fit vegetables into my hectic lifestyle!”
Erin, thank you so much for picking up some Future Greens, and I’m really glad that you like it and you don’t have to take it like a shot of whiskey.
I’ve been doing this for about 10 years, and we get sent products to try all the time. Alyson and I have tried a lot of green powders, a bunch of different formulations and to be honest, a lot of these green veggie and fruit powders taste like fish tank.
When you mix them up and drink them, it’s like it’s worse than whiskey in some ways.
Because at least whiskey can have a satisfying burn and aftertaste to it, but fish tank is not pleasant. Neither are fish burps, which happens with a lot of the omega and fish oil supplements that are out there.
So anyway, when you try Wild Superfoods, these are the products that we take ourselves.
I have really high standards for what I take personally, so I do hope that you like Future Greens. It’s got just 1 gram of sugar, so only a little bit of sweetness.
When I wore a continuous glucose monitor and looked at my glucose while taking Future Greens on an empty stomach, as well as taking Collagen Cocoa on an empty stomach, they didn’t spike my blood sugar.
So whether you’re talking metabolically, or the flavor, these products are vetted and proven. And we’re really happy to bring them to you over at Wild Superfoods.

Have you tried red light therapy yet?
Red and near-infrared light has become one of my favorite technologies for healing over the past few years, and there’s never been a better time to try it yourself.
So if you’re interested in trying red light therapy and you want a powerful and affordable set up, that’s great on the move, definitely check out the FlexBeam.
Unlike the larger red light panels, the FlexBeam is portable battery-powered and thankfully, far less expensive.
The FlexBeam is new and selling quickly, so shipping has been delayed a bit, but you still have time to save $140 bucks.
All you have to do is visit fatburningman.com/redlight.
If you have sore muscles or want to improve your recovery, this is a great opportunity to try this revolutionary new tech for a smoking deal. I can’t wait to hear how you like it. Thanks for listening.
