How can we separate truth from propaganda?
It surprises many to learn that in the United States, propaganda is perfectly legal.
It’s not so subtle though if you look closely, and the endless drum beat of talking heads repeating the same sound bites over and over doesn’t inform us or get us any closer to the truth.
Simply doing what we’re told won’t lead to long-term health or well-being—just look at the food pyramid—we have to take on that responsibility ourselves.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to do your homework and think for yourself, especially when your health is concerned.
And I realize that thinking for yourself has become very controversial as of late, but it certainly shouldn’t be.
In a time when we’re swamped with shameless corporate propaganda, I’m honored to be here with an incredible woman who takes journalistic integrity seriously.
Joining us on the show is our friend La’Tasha Givens, a multiple Emmy Award-winning reporter, anchor and radio show host who has more than a decade of experience in news.
You may also remember La’Tasha from back in 2016 when we starred together on that ABC TV show, My Diet Is Better Than Yours. While filming for the show, La’Tasha dropped an impressive 45 pounds and 18.5% of her total body weight in just 14 weeks.
You’re going to dig this one, we’re talking about…
- What it’s like to drop 45 pounds on ABC television in front of the whole world
- Getting results with different approaches to fat loss—there are different ways of getting there
- Why the past few years have been really tough on journalists
- Tips on time management from a busy mom and a reporter
- All-time favorite cheeses
- And much more…
Let’s go hang out with La’Tasha.

Here’s a review from BigBrewBrad that recently came in for the Fat-Burning Man Show on Apple Podcasts. He rates the show 5 out of 5 stars and says:
Five Years Strong
Thanks to this podcast I have learned so much and I live so well!
I’m 48 and look and feel like I’m 35!

Have you heard all the buzz about CBD?
I’ve been researching and experimenting with this potent plant compound for years, but finding a trustworthy source has been a constant challenge over the years, which is why I was happy to find Eaton Hemp.
Their CBD is minimally processed and grown right in their own organic farm in upstate New York.
Their full spectrum CBD is unfiltered and kept intact to ensure maximum terpenes.
With over 12,000 clinical studies, the benefits of this powerhouse plant compound speak for themselves.

If you’ve ever watched your macros, you know that quality protein is critical for building muscle and maintaining a healthy body composition.
And if you’re snacking or need a quick bite, protein is by far the most filling macro.
And the good folks over at PaleoValley offer high-quality, shelf-stable protein in their grass-fed beef sticks.
The grass-fed beef in their beef sticks comes from small American-owned farms that practice rotational grazing, feed their cattle 100% grass, and they’re never given antibiotics or hormones.
PaleoValley is doing things right, so I highly recommend taking a peek at what they’ve got in their store over at paleovalley.com.
