Rebooted Body with Kevin Geary - HELP 7
Have you ever struggled with diet plans? Do you feel overwhelmed with information from family, friends, media, celebrities, and even popular television shows telling you what you should and shouldn't do to lose weight? How many times have you started a plan, had some success, and then put that weight back on (or put even more weight on your body)? Have you ever just wanted to just wipe it all away and start over?
You aren't alone if you answered "yes" to one or more of those questions. Let me be honest with you: I am there right now. I answered "yes" to all of those questions tonight. Every. Single. One. I wish it wasn't the case; I wish I could report that things were going splendidly, and I was well on my way to getting fit and losing weight. That would be a complete bullsh*t.
Drew Sample and I recently interviewed Kevin Geary, blogger, podcaster and creator of Rebooted Body. As he states on Rebooted Body, Kevin is a "leading authority on the psychology of eating. He and his team have helped men and women in over 30 countries around the world get a body and life they love." Kevin has been there. struggling with is weight since he was a teenager: thin and unhealthy. He used to have really low energy and was addicted to sugar and sugary drinks. Kevin discovered the "Real Food Movement" and lost 40 pounds. It wasn't until he examined his mindset and understood the "why" behind his eating patterns and confronted those issues that he broke the cycle and started living a healthier lifestyle.
Kevin, Drew and I discussed the following topics in this episode:
Diet and fitness over the past week and plans for the next week
Drew and I tell Kevin about our current diets and work out routines
Kevin leads a great discussion about the inner rebel, willpower and discipline (I can relate to the inner rebel)
Kevin then discusses the three pillars to healthy living: Eat, Move and Live
Eat - Eat real foods; our bodies are nutritionally deficient
Move - The human body needs to move; start by walking every day
Live - Sleep at least eight hours a day; focus on gut health
For me, this was a powerful podcast that I have been digesting and thinking about a lot recently. I will be doing some more research and self-examination using the Rebooted Body website and platform. I learned a lot from this interview, and I appreciate Drew and Kevin being on this podcast with me.
