Project B3 Update

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.


What an amazing response to my initial post asking whether or not anyone would be interested in a “guided” program to help with holiday stress and weight.

I received hundreds of, “I’m interested!” emails – so here is how the pilot program will work.

First off – it’s FREE – there is no cost associated with joining any of the online weekly Zoom calls – so you can dial in and get all the information about how modulating your microbiome and improving your gut-brain-axis can help with mood, energy, focus, and yes – weight (see topic list below).

This online pilot program will guide you through 8 weeks of nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle tips using the same proven formula outlined in many of my books– and successfully implemented by thousands of people following my programs over the years. When participating in this program during the “holiday stress season” my participants have seen huge benefits for both stress level and body fat.

What you’ll “get” with the pilot program:

  • Weekly blog posts addressing different tips and topics
  • Weekly live online video calls with discussion and Q&A sessions
  • Access to recordings of all video calls so you can view and review at your leisure

While participation in the pilot program coaching is free to all participants, I’ll also be recommending a variety of nutrition products from Amare Global (The Mental Wellness Company) to help with microbiome modulation, gut-brain-axis balance, mood, stress, sleep, and more. You can choose to use all or some of the recommended products, based on your goals and budget.

I’m calling this pilot program, “Project B3” to emphasize that it’s a PILOT program that will focus on improving Brain& Biomeaspects of wellness (which will help everyone move to the “right” side of the Mental Wellness Continuum with better mood, lower stress, higher energy, sharper mental focus, superior vigor) – and which can all help to bring us toward a better Body(in terms of how we look, how we function, and how we perform).

You’ll see how important “B3 Balance” across Brain/Body/Biome is for overall well-being as we move through the program together.

I’m looking forward to joining you in this program – and to having a great Holiday Season – and to setting up 2019 to be your best year yet!

What to do now?

  1. Order your products so you have them at the start of November (you won’t actually start taking them until November 8 – but ordering in October entitles you to greater reward points to “spend” on future products for December).
  2. Get your buddies together – doing a program like this with friends will vastly improve your results.
  3. Bookmark– which is where we will hold the weekly Zoom calls on Thursday nights at 6pm PT, 7pm MT, 8pm CT, 9pm ET – and visit www.ShawnTalbott.comand “Follow” my blog so you’re notified each time I post new information there.


One final note – I understand that many Amare Leaders will be in Cancun celebrating their success during November 5-10, so they may be starting the program a week later than most people – NOT a problem. In fact, their results on the program might be particularly good because I‘m sure they will be “indulging” more than typical during this week – and they should!
