It's not often it happens on this show, but let's turn the tables where I get interviewed. This interview is one I did for a show called Zestology by Tony Wrighton. Tony interviewed me on my perspective around bulletproof coffee, anxiety issues are food and diet, why health and change is merely a change of perspective as to what is important, where and how high fat diets are applicable, why he's confused that I'm not a big proponent of supplements despite owning a supplement company, and we delve deeper into my journey and my drivers of change, going deep. Enjoy.

Want to know what we can learn from dogs? A lot. In this episode I talk to Graeme Hall, the Dogfather (from TV's 'Dog's behaving badly'), a dog trainer that focuses on human behaviour to get the best out of the owner, and the dog, to create positive change. So what if we apply dog training principals to our own lives, can we break habits we think we can't give up, can we do more, can we be more, can we change, for good?

Can we be the best at something? Can we stop eating junk food when we 'feel' we can't? Can we lift that weight we believe we can't? This is another life changing episode, if you're willing to apply some very simple principals of change.
