I’m often asked about my nutrition – and on the podcast, we've discussed my macronutrient intake (remember: saturated fats, carbohydrates, and proteins). Today, I bring on the expert to discuss nutrition and high performance. Here's the format: we dig into diet types, veganism, clean meat consumption, and discuss the poor farm treatment of animals.

Our guest today, in addition to being among the world’s first clean meat consumers, is Paul Shapiro. Paul's a four-time TEDx speaker and long-time leader in food sustainability. He's published hundreds of articles in publications ranging from daily newspapers to academic journals, and is the latest best-selling author on the podcast! Check out Clean Meat: how growing meat without animals will revolutionize dinner and the world. (www.CleanMeat.com)

Quickly: clean meat, you ask? It’s the next great scientific revolution of creating and commercializing cleaner, safer, sustainable meat – real meat – without the animals. More on this during the interview.

Suiting Up is a show that explores the psychology, playbook of tools, and strategies of the most influential people in sports, entrepreneurship, and entertainment.
