What We Cover in This Episode:

How Mike survived the “dark, egocentric world” of journalism.
How God gives us passions and gifts that we can use in our careers and why you should do something you love.
The media has been a mess, never as bad as now, and what you can do about it.
How the darkness, evil and corruption of the world lead to cynicism, pride and using others as a means to your own end.
The temptation of prizes, awards, honors and scooping the competition.
Why he lied about reading the Bible.
What happened when he decided to take a 12-week “Survey of the Old Testament” course with his wife (with the subtle intention to prove it wasn’t true).
Why, as a believer, he could no longer “hold his head up” and remain part of the media.
How he transitioned from telling terrible stories to telling “good” stories on his blog.
What we should do as consumers of media today.
Most reporters care about evil, corruptions and want to make a difference and to do good, but…
How this generation of journalists has been taught to think a certain way and how that affects the presentation of the media today, often making evil look good and good appear evil.
How to be aware of the mainstream media bias and anger and how to keep a balance by reading conservative media too.
Why Mike would never, as a Christian, send his child to a public university.
As consumers, what we can do to have a good, positive influence on the media today.
The opportunity we all have to develop an alternate media that represents and preserves Christian values.
How “Christianese” can be the most destructive language we’ve even heard and how to promote Christian values in ways others can understand and digest.
What it means to be an “ipastor” running and “icampus”.
Staying connected to God while you’re on the road.
The funny thing Mike Huckabee does to serve in his church.
Why it’s important to learn to do your own Bible study that is independent of anything else.
How to use social media to challenge bad stories and point out good stories.
How the song “Amazing Grace” saved a woman from death and led to the eventual conversion of her attacker. (After the end of the show during the “after party” so keep listening.)

From Super Size Me to Super Healthy Me with Mike Wendland

Read more

In this episode of The Functional Medicine Radio Show, Dr. Carri’s special guest Mike Wendland talks about his health journey from ‘supersize me’ to ‘super healthy me’.

Mike has no involvement in healthcare whatsoever – he’s just a regular guy who decided to take control of his health!

Actually, he’s a longtime media guy and investigative reporter. He’s written for national newspapers, from USA Today to the New York Times. He’s also a travel writer who travels around North America in an RV looking for cool stories about people and places.

He uses his blog and podcast to chronicle exactly what happens to him as he started to exercise daily and abandon a junk food diet and eat only good, whole, organic and nutritious foods.

He shares every aspect of this adventure, revealing his weight, his struggles and successes and what he’s learning and experiencing through his new emphasis on health and fitness.

Main Questions Asked:

  • What was your big ‘aha’ moment that drove you to make a 180 degree turn with your health?
  • Can you share some of your struggles and wins as you’ve gone on this journey to health?
  • What has been the biggest impact to your success – diet, exercise, or mindset?
  • Is there a conspiracy going on in our food industry?
  • Does eating healthy cost more?
  • What are three tips we can do to help keep healthy?

Key Points made by Mike:

  • Mike struggled on yo-yo diets for years. It was the movie “Supersize Me” by Morgan Spurlock that gave him the idea to challenge himself to completely change his diet and lifestyle.
  • One of Mike’s secrets that helps keep him accountable is his podcast “Super Healthy Me” – his listeners help keep him on the health track.
  • As an investigative reporter Mike was shocked at the secret within the food industry to keep us addicted to their unhealthy, processed foods.
  • One thing he did was simply watch what fit people eat verses what obese people eat, and he started to mimic the fit eaters.
  • Between diet, exercise, and mindset, it’s really mindset that Mike credits with his success.
  • Mike put a tape measure down, put one foot on his age, then said to himself “How much longer can I expect to live?” and saw there wasn’t much room between the two numbers. This spurred him to take action!
  • Mike’s mindset: The past is the past – there’s nothing you can do to change it. But, the future’s still there. And, it will get longer the healthier you are.
  • Educate yourself about the food industry (like Mike did) and you will naturally start making better food choices.
  • Mike highly recommends the book “Salt Sugar Fat” to learn about how the food industry is diabolically plotting to make you addicted to their junk foods.
  • When you look at old photos and old movies from the 40’s and 50’s you’ll notice there are no obese people – they’re all fit! What’s changed? Our food and our diet are different now thanks to the food industry.
  • Eating healthy does cost more. But, you will also enjoy your food more, too – it tastes better, and you’ll feel better.
  • Reading labels is like a hobby for Mike. Learn to read labels and see what’s in your food.
  • Tip #1 – Do not eat after 6pm.
  • Tip #2 – Make sure you’re getting good sleep – 7-9 hours a night. Research shows it’s one of the most important factors to lose weight.
  • Tip #3 – Find exercises that you love doing, and then do them 30 minutes six days a week.
  • Sitting at a desk is worse for you than smoking cigarettes.

Mike Wendeland is a trained journalist who in 2012, bought a recreation vehicle or motor home, and while on the road, began covering the beat of the people and experiences they found along the way on his blog, RoadTreking.com.
Mike used to be a traveling journalist for the Detroit News and his curiosity as a reporter has carried over into his retirement, which he’s not taking lying down — but instead, on the road — in his RV, a mobile new media studio, from which he blogs and podcasts on his new show, Roadtreking: The RV Podcast.
As a result of this new project, Mike has attracted an enormous audience of RV enthusiasts to help perpetuate his travels, and who he now inspires to follow in his very unique footsteps.

Mike Wendland: Roadtreking

Read more
If you have been a frequent listener to these podcasts you will know me as the host of American Road Trip Talk but most of the time I wear an entirely different hat. For 40 years I have been a radio broadcaster in the Detroit Metropolitan area and for the last 16 of them I have hosted a weekly show called the Internet Advisor where we help people with their computer problems and introduce them to experts in the field.

So what has that got to do with traveling the open road? Glad you asked. On the first show of 2014, I interview Mike Wendland, a nationally noted tech reporter on radio and CBS TV Network. Mike recently retired and, like some of you, decided to take his considerable talents on the American Road in a small RV. Mike has turned this new chapter in his life into a whole new career called Roadtreking. You can find stories and pictures of his adventures at http://www.roadtreking.com. Mike now handles all sorts of topics from repairing your generator to dealing with sitting disease and knowing when it’s too cold to RV,

This interview is brought to you by the Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway--Where the Mother Road Begins. From famous road-side restaurants to hidden gems, Route 66 in Illinois offers a journey back in time.
