Is training in the gym sustainable long term? Is it healthy, does it have meaning, purpose, and give us enough emotionally and physically? I discuss the various reasons we go to the gym, it's purpose, and whether it's applicable for everyone, and the circumstances you might stop going to the gym.

Chronic Fatigue is an end stage of acute long term stress, so are you at risk? Are you already suffering with the signs? What are the signs? In this episode I talk to functional medicine practitioner Alex Manos on the many contributing factors around chronic fatigue (syndrome) and how we can look to conquer this growing problem. We look at the 6 level approach, the physiological dynamics of such a condition, and then move into discussing the role of the gut and the microbiome and its affect on health.

Do you mindfully binge eat? Why is this? You know you're doing it, but you can't stop, yet you still get annoyed at the outcome. In this episode we discuss the paradox of calories and binge eating, under eating, under performing, and how this all connects to the bigger picture. We also discuss using alcohol as a way to relax, and the stress we all face in daily life. This is possibly one of my favourite episodes to date, truly real talk. Enjoy.

In this short new podcast format I rant on happiness, and whether you are going to choose to take it or not. Many of us have self-sabotaging habits, things we do that hold us back, the way we think and act that we know isn't 'normal' or conductive to success. Question is, are we going to choose to change?
