We are delighted to welcome NFL player Tim Hightower to talk to us about his Paleo journey to recovery from a serious, career-threatening injury. Like many other young players in the NFL, Tim’s diet was not very well thought out, consisting of lots of fast food and whatever else was available. It was only after he sustained an injury that would put him out of action for almost four seasons that he changed his diet with the goal of recovery. In our conversation, he tells us about the perseverance it took to get back on the field after so much time out, and how long it took to find the right doctor to give him the right advice. He then takes us through his current workout and dietary practices and some of the basic lessons he has learned along the way. Tim drives home some important points around recovery, mobility, stamina, and adaptation. For a great talk with an experienced, top-level athlete, be sure to tune in!
