Tom Bilyeu is the host of the wildly successful Impact Theory, where he interviews some of the highest performers of our time. He also hosts the offshoot shows Relationship Theory, with his lovely wife Lisa, and Health Theory, where he interviews the top minds in health. Tom is also a founder of Quest Nutrition, which experienced 57,000 percent growth within its first three years in spite of Tom having no food industry experience before launch.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • The mindset and tactics that Tom used to achieve massive success in the health industry—which you can apply to any industry.

  • The only thing that matters in life to Tom (and how he came to discover that it's not money).

  • Why intelligence for many of us (myself included) is context-dependent.

  • Tom's health journey: coming from a morbidly obese family and emerging from a run of yo-yo dieting to ultimately find the eating style that worked for him to become lean and stay that way.

  • How the self-described "dumb and lazy" Tom came to embrace the idea that humans are built for adaptation.

  • And much more!
