  1. Please ask Kevin if he figured out how to make fermented okinawan turmeric tea. I make a lot of kombucha and would absolutely love to be able to learn how to ferment any super awesome longevity tea using turmeric. If he knows, he has to share….

    Thank you



  2. Kevin Rose is really bringing the show down. The fact that he’s considered a success in the US leads me to doubt the criteria for success in the US.


  3. You guys should do a random show where you talk about how to move to another country and make a living. I really want to do this but I have no idea how I would make money.


  4. I got goosebumps after watching that Mr Rogers clip. Love a good persuasive speech! Thanks for adding that at the end. I don’t think I would’ve gone back to watch it.


  5. Interesting to find out that the $ Hour Chef is not just about food/cooking, etc. That’s the impression I got. Now I’m intrigued and will definitely consider buying it.
    “Lady friend” sounds kind of impersonal lol as long as she likes it ;-)


  6. Hi Tim, Im writing to you today because I have a question first a little back ground, I started this diet with my husband shortly after giving birth to our second son, and 5 years of being out of shape and overweight. During this last pregnancy, I developed gestational Diabetes, all this was the push to so something about the weight and take care of myself. Your diet has truley been what has helped me return my sugar to normal and loose weight post baby.

    That being said, Ive reached a plateau in my weight loss, and I have looked to see if there was any advise for breastfeeding mothers out there, but I have reached a wall. My doctor has advised against the supplements for now as we are not sure what effect it will have on the baby. And I have tried including some of the workouts, but lets be honest, with a 4 month old, I hardly have time to cook my meals much less have time to workout. Ive upped my water intake, Ive indulged on my cheat days happily. Even tried including more calories.

    Ive lost 65 pounds post baby, with the help of your healthy eating plan but was wondering if you had any words of advise for me to push past the plateau.


  7. Just watched an online show last night, and I couldn’t shut it off. Both of you are very inspirational – I actually lost sleep thinking of new potential ideas.

    Looking fwd to reading the book Tim

  8. Quick tip:

    Besides an iTunes subscription could you provide simple RSS subscription and / or direct audio / video downloads?

    Many thanks!


  9. Tim, I’ve been a long time fan and avid reader of your books. Although I ordered The 4 Hour Chef during the rally promotion and never received it, I look forward to it when I do.
    I started watching the Random Show tonight and just wanted to send a shout out and a “high five” for the interesting conversation and very interesting topics and suggestions. Keep up the good work :)

  10. I started with your most recent episode of the random show and have been working backward. Actually kind of fun. Love the topics in these shows keep it up. I love this kind of format. I’ll throw it on the TV/Mac Mini and watch for some great insight and good laughs. Glad to see successful people can still have a great time. I think one part of the format that is great is that you record everywhere from Cabo to a bar to Kevin’s house. We need more shots with Toaster moonwalking!!!! All the best guys.
