Guidance and tools for a lean, healthy, and passionate you

Sid Garza-Hillman returns to the podcast to talk about his new book, Raising Healthy Parents. In typical Sid fashion, the book is funny, irreverent, wise, and insanely useful.

Sid is the Nutritionist and Program Director at The Stanford Inn by the Sea in Mendocino, California, and host of the Approaching the Natural podcast. He's also a race director, YouTuber, and health coach.

In today's conversation, we cover:

  • why Raising Healthy Parents isn't really a parenting book
  • why putting our lives on the back burner for the sake of our children can keep our families from thriving
  • the example we set is first and foremost – it's about us, not the children
  • the health of the family depends on the health of the parents
  • vs “top ten” list mentality
  • how to get to the place where you can incorporate the rest of the advice
  • if you're stress, fatigued, and pissed when you walk in the door, you won't be able to follow any parenting advice very well
  • there's no substitute for doing the work on yourself
  • “It's easier than ever to be a parent these days, just as it's easier than ever to nourish ourselves with food.” – from Matt Frazier's introduction
  • using tablets and smartphones as babysitters
  • the more depleted we are, the less we can give to our kids
  • Howard's family battles and the curse of knowledge
  • picturing yourself as the parent you want to be
  • implementing slowly, in small steps
  • and much more…
