There is more to life than just macros, calories, weight loss, and getting skinny. Strengthening our emotional and mental health are essential aspects of living a life of joy and fulfillment. We suffer when we focus on anything that is outside of our realm of power. Be it the past or the future. The present is the only thing we can truly master at this moment. Kathryn Dixon, the life coach who helped Drew realize he was worthy of unconditional love, joins him today on the podcast. She talks about The Work of Byron Katie, the role of addiction in our lives, and the breaking of generational patterns.

 

This episode touches on the side of transformation that isn't often discussed and how it all ties in together.

Knowing what you are good at and not good at can save you lots of money, just ask Chris Powell. Today we revisit our first interview with Chris - he figured out (by trial and error) he was a much better trainer than a businessman. He openly admits to his hard times and shares how living in a bitter place transformed him to become the friend, husband, father and trainer he is today.

The ketogenic diet has evolved since the 1920s when doctors discovered the benefit of using ketones as a fuel source to control seizures in children with drug-resistant epilepsy. Then before the dawn of social media, the keto diet was passed around like a secret in gyms where weightlifters and athletes worked out. Now, there is an entire industry built to offer support for those on the keto diet. You can get keto supplements, keto meal plans, books dedicated to keto, and even listen to keto-based podcasts. But, how do you know which version of keto is right for you?

 

In this episode, Drew explores the evolution of the ketogenic diet, why a bio-individualized approach is better than a one-size-fits-all approach, and the different morphs of the ketogenic diet, including the Carnivore and the plant-based versions.
