In this episode we get very honest with ourselves and our situations, the daily things we deal with as people that could hold us back, but shouldn't if we choose to be honest about the why and be clear with a solution. Could 1 simple shift in our mindset be the key....

We also muse around educating the obese segment of the UK population and what it would take to change that on a mass scale, as well as other fat loss musings with this weeks Q&A. Enjoy.

I invite Phil Graham for a 2nd interview on the podcast and this time we discuss diabetes, something that is very close to Phil's heart. In this interview we discuss the differences between type 1 and 2 diabetes, how to optimise it, the role of insulin, the importance of exercise, things you need to be aware of, optimising body composition with diabetes, health considerations, training considerations, micronutrient considerations, and more. I also delve into Phil's transition out of bodybuilding and into the normal world of training for health and performance. An excellent show with a knowledgable and humble guy, and if you haven't got a copy of his book, get one!

We are all capable of great things, but we have to choose to be great. Jamie is someone I disliked many years ago in fitness, but his teachings and where he is at these days impresses me daily, his mindset, his training, everything is an example to others to learn from. I interview Jamie (aka Grenade Jay) on whats changed, his journey, his habits, his values, his training, his diet, his life, everything, and there is something everyone can learn from in this podcast. Enjoy.

Are you seeking perfection? Is it a healthy or unhealthy habit you have? Where do we draw the line with what is healthy, and what is not? Being vein is a good thing, but there is a limit, how do we find this personal limit and channel this desire to be something that adds health and satisfaction to our lives, rather than leaving us anxious and unhappy. We also discuss self-awareness, dressing to impress and more.
