    49| Lee Boyce: Working Out For Your Body Type, Sustainable Diets, Losing Covid Weight

    My guest today is my friend Lee Boyce, a fitness coach who is basically featured on every major publication when it comes to fitness and men's health. He is such a wealth of information when it comes to training the body, and we talk about how there are different types of workouts that all work best for different body types.

    Lee also touches upon how he got interested in fitness and became a coach to begin with, the approach that he tends to take with his clients, how he goes about tailoring training regimens depending on his clients' body types, why and how the COVID-19 pandemic motivated him to get in better shape, and so much more! He also takes part in my frequent series of rapid-fire questions, answering questions such as what writing means to him, which of his articles he is proudest of and which one best defines who he is, what fitness has done for his life, how he goes about building an audience on social media, and more!

    I really enjoy Lee's social media content, and I love the simplicity of his philosophy around nutrition and exercise. I really appreciate his time coming on to the show, and I hope that you enjoy this conversation with him. If so, then, if you aren't subscribed to the show already, please be sure to subscribe on your favorite podcast app!

    48| Adam Smith - Healing the World Through Healing Your Attachment

    48| Adam Smith - Healing the World Through Healing Your Attachment

    I have actually known today's guest for quite some time! Adam Lane Smith is a former psychologist turned attachment coach with a couple hundred thousand followers on TikTok and a strong following on Twitter, and he and I talk in this episode about, among other things, how attachments impact every single aspect of our lives.

    Adam defines attachment as how we connect with other human beings and give love to and receive love from them. What is the difference between healthy attachment and unhealthy attachment, and how do we know when the attachment is unhealthy? What are the symptoms of unhealthy attachment, and how can we create secure, healthy attachment instead? Adam dives into all of these questions and also goes down a great rabbit hole explaining how World War I and World War II impacted generations to come and how we emotionally operate.

    He also goes into so much more such as giving advice on how parents can foster secure attachments in their children, even in the event that both parents have to work 9-5 jobs and the children have to spend some time with sitters and/or daycare. I am so happy that Adam reached out and that we were able to do this, and I hope that you enjoy my conversation with him. If you do, then, if you aren't subscribed to the show already, please be sure to subscribe on your favorite podcast app! I would also really appreciate it if you would share the podcast with at least one other person you know who might also enjoy it and if you would leave me a five-star review! That really helps the show out!

    I wanted to have a conversation with today's guest just to get some parenting tips from him but then decided that it would be a great idea to do a whole podcast episode around that.

    Chris runs KettlebellWorkouts.com and can also be found at ChrisLopez.io, and one of the main areas of interest that we talk about today is how Chris homeschooled his children before it was as common as it is today. We chat about why he went into entrepreneurship to begin with, the main principles of parenting and following through, and having integrity. We also talk about what some appropriate disciplinary methods might be when it comes to children misbehaving, and Chris shares his thoughts on phones, tablets, and social media.

    Chris also takes part in my series of rapid-fire questions, including what he loves most about his wife, who his favorite volleyball player is, what project he is most excited about right now, and so much more! I am so appreciative of Chris for his time and for his friendship, and I really hope that you enjoy this podcast episode that I did with him!

    45| I Taped My Mouth Shut For Sleep For 6 Weeks. Here’s What I Learned...

    This may come as a surprise to you, but taping your mouth shut while you sleep can make a hugely positive impact on your life, and I want to share with you how doing so has helped me over the past six weeks so that maybe you will want to make this change to your life as well.

    Sleeping with my mouth taped shut has changed the way that I sleep, my oral health, and how I breathe. I discuss how and why I started doing this in the first place, what the negative impacts are of mouth-breathing as opposed to the positive impacts of nose-breathing, what mouth-breathing (especially the Buteyko method) even is and how to do it, and so much more!

    I offer a few helpful resources as well, and I encourage you to check them out and do your own research because just because this has worked so well for me does not mean that it's going to work for everyone. I really appreciate your time tuning in to this. If this topic was interesting to you and you haven't subscribed to the show already, please be sure to do so on your favorite podcast app. I would also really appreciate it if you would share the podcast with at least one other person you know who might also enjoy it and if you would leave me a five-star review.

    44| Ted Ryce - How to Create High Performance Entrepreneurs

    I welcome Ted Ryce to the podcast today! Ted is a high-performance coach who has worked with celebrities like Sir Richard Branson, Robert Downey Jr., Ricky Martin, and a dozen CEOs of multimillion-dollar companies. We talk in this interview about various topics such as what happens when we start to help clients, what Ted does specifically regarding training and dieting, and even how death has impacted his life.

    Ted also touches upon his nomadic lifestyle and why, even though he loves the United States, he does not plan on returning to the States any time soon. He discusses how he had at one point wanted to be a neuroscientist and how that has connected to what he does now, what a protein-sparing modified fast is, why intermittent fasting doesn't always work, how chronic stress negatively affects our health, and more.

    As is tradition on the podcast, Ted also answers some rapid-fire questions such as what his favorite exercise is, what his current fitness goals are, what losing people to death has taught him about life, what he hopes his legacy will be, and more. This interview was really enjoyable for me especially since Ted and I sort of work with the same target clientele, and I really appreciate his being so transparent and vulnerable. If you enjoy this episode, I would really appreciate it if you would subscribe to the podcast so that you never miss an episode, and I would also be grateful if you were to leave a five-star review wherever you listen!
