Gary Collins has a very interesting and unique background that includes military intelligence, Special Agent for the U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Collins’ background and expert knowledge brings a much-needed perspective to today’s areas of simple living, health, nutrition, entrepreneurship, self-help and being more self-reliant. He holds an AS degree in Exercise Science, BS in Criminal Justice, and MS in Forensic Science.
Gary was raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in a rural part of California. He now lives off-the-grid part of the year in a remote area of NE Washington State, and the other part of a year exploring in his travel trailer with his trusty black lab Barney.
He enjoyed and considers himself lucky to have grown up in a very small town experiencing fishing, hunting, and anything outdoors from a very young age. He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition, and fitness for almost four decades. He is also an active follower and teacher of what he calls “life simplification.” He often says:
“Today we’re bombarded by too much stress, not enough time for personal fulfillment, and failing to take care of our health… there has to be a better way!”
In addition to being the best selling author, he has taught at the University College level, consulted and trained college level athletes, and been interviewed for his expertise on various subjects by CBS Sports, Coast to Coast AM, The RT Network, and FOX News to name a few.
His website www.thesimplelifenow.com, and The Simple Life book series (his total lifestyle reboot), blows the lid off of conventional life and wellness expectations and is considered essential for every person seeking a simpler, and happier life

WOW!!! I knew it was bad, but this bad? Gary opened up and deeply expanded the counterfeiting in the supplement industry as well as in the foods industry. I take his suggestions to heart, body and mind. Thank you Drew for bringing him on your show. Gary, keep on spreading the word. Now, if there was truly a way to know what is real and what is counterfeit. Hmmmm.
Thanks so much for listening Janet! And for taking the time to comment!
Yikes! This is crazy. You hear about this kind of corruption but no one really wants to talk about it or admit its true. I appreciate his honesty about how conventional medicine and pharmaceutical companies don’t make money off of healthy people. It’s frightening to think that they actually want people to deal with illness to keep the money coming in. I strive to be an advocate for my own health and my families health so that we can stay out of the loop of illness as much as we are able! So interesting. I wish more people knew and would be more open minded to these discussions.
Thanks so much for listening and for commenting Cori! I couldn’t agree more, it’s scary to know what really goes on behind the scenes. Good for you for being an advocate for your own health!
