    {SPECIAL} Why I wrote How to Live an Awesome Life - OUT NOW

    Many have asked "Ben, why did you write How to Live an Awesome Life", why haven't you written a nutrition and health book? Well my mission has always been much bigger than that, its what I have strived for personally, and have tried to foster and inspire in others. Also, nothing works in isolation, you can't optimise some areas of your life without others, it has to all work in tandem, thats why I've written my new 11 step formula to living your most awesome life, which is out today.

    In this show I explain why I wrote the book, how my journey shaped it, what the 11 chapters cover, and what you'll get from reading or listening to the book.

    OUT NOW on Amazon, Audible, Kindle, just search my name, you'll see it, it's also in many book stores around the world!

    #685 - Hardest 2 Years of my Life

    The last 2 years have been really challenging and have seen me change as a person more than at any time in my life, from battling long covid, to having kids, to losing myself, to getting a low testosterone diagnosis, and more. In this show I reflect on these last 2 years, why they have been hard, what I have learnt from the experience and why I am now a better human as a result of it.

    I hope you enjoy the reflections, this is my final podcast for now after 10 years doing it, follow the next phase of my journey to inspire and help others, by being on my book waiting list:

    #684 - Knowing when to quit

    #684 - Knowing when to quit

    Knowing when to quit something in life is key, otherwise things sour, we get resentful, and we aren't doing things that keep us fulfilled and whole. It could be a job, a relationship, a commitment to someone else. We often use logic to decide whether to quit or not, but this is wrong, which I'll explain in this show.

    This is the penultimate podcast for Ben Coomber Radio, if you listen in, I'll explain why it's time to quit...

    #683 - Metabolism, can we increase it?

    #683 - Metabolism, can we increase it?

    We're often sold products to help us "increase our metabolism". Many believe they have "a slow metabolism". There are many metabolic myths, this podcast breaks them all down, defines both metabolism and metabolic rate, how we can increase it, whether products like 'Lumen' - a metabolism hacking device is worth it, and a few other musings, all aimed for us to improve health and body composition. Enjoy.

    #682 - Diet Culture & Motivational Quotes

    #682 - Diet Culture & Motivational Quotes

    Diet culture is a problem, but it's also misunderstood in many ways. We re-look at this important topic and evolve our thinking on it, looking at fitness culture, how information is communicated online, the definition of it, how it intersects with mental health, how we should conquer our goals, and finish with a look at our favourite quotes, whether they are motivational or not, and how motivational quotes actually work in the brain.

    #681 - The Optimal Human Diet: A New Perspective

    #681 - The Optimal Human Diet: A New Perspective

    A cool new piece of research has come out looking at the gut microbiome, bacteria, what happens when people eat different diets, and what this means for that claims that are made around what is the optimal human diet, and how the gut feeds into that conversation. We ensure we make this show practical, but also get to the heart of what the science is trying to tell us. Enjoy.

Absolutely Invaluable!!!

Been listening to BCR for years now. He set the standard on how podcasts should be. Some unbelievable knowledge and information given for free over the years and it continues to get better. You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic, anyone can listen and learn. Would highly recommend to anyone. 5stars from me.
