On today’s show Mark and Rick have a conversation with Jayson and Mira Calton -- they are among the world's leading experts on the topics of weight management, lifestyle medicine and micronutrient deficiency. Their high success rate working with adults and children to achieve sustainable weight loss and reverse health and disease conditions has made their consultancy highly sought after by celebrities, athletes and top corporate executives around the world. It is their belief that becoming micronutrient sufficient is the first step towards preventing and reversing many of today's most prevalent health conditions and diseases. (I stole that from their website). We talk to them about osteoporosis, the importance of micronutrients, bad multivitamins, a great multivitamin, a coupon code!, how the Caltons are like the late, great Weston A. Price, and the universal truth of nutrition.

Then it’s another edition of the Humans Being Human segment where Rick tells a story which, at the time of the event, he never thought he would ever tell anyone. Warning: it’s gross.
Our Simply Human Tip of the Week is try and go a full day without sitting in a chair -- only standing, squatting or sitting on the floor -- and if you do that, email us and let us know how it went. We promise we will read it on the show. Rick has a new email address --
