#616 - Highs & Lows of Being a World Champion with Jenny Todd
In this episode Tom my co-host interviews his training coach, Jenny Todd, who is 4x England’s Strongest Woman and previous winner of Britain’s Strongest woman, Europe’s Strongest Woman and the 2017 Arnold Amateur Middleweight Division. They discuss her approach to competing, why she decided to retire from the sport after reaching the top, the lessons learned along the way about being a world champion level athlete, and also about being a happy person. They also discuss gym programming, where to start if you’re new to the gym, working on your weaknesses, and how to start out if you want to get involved with strongman! An awesome (in places deep) interview with a truly inspiring person - we hope you enjoy it!

#615 - Fruit vs Veg
We all agree fruit and vegetables are healthy, but is one better than the other? A recent article points to vegetables being better than fruit, is there any truth to the article? What about glycemic control, nutrient density, sugar content, preparation, and the overall calorie volume? It’s all discussed in this show alongside research processes, where goals intersect with the detail of nutrition, and ultimately how to navigate fruit and vegetables in your diet for health, long term.
#614 - Communication is Key
I'm in a bit of a personal life pickle, but, as ever, there is a lesson to draw from it, so here goes..
#613 - Could Life be Better After Covid?
What has the covid-19 pandemic taught us about our health, fitness, food, mindset, mental health, physical health, life and MORE? I'm one for reflection, perspective and learning, and I fire up the mic for a solo show on "8 ways I hope the world changes after covid". Got one you want to add to my list? Hit me up, email into the show and share it....
#612 - The Halo Effect
Tom and I delve into new research on The Halo Effect, how the generations have approached nutrition, how this feeds into how we feed our kids, how I have approached feeding my daughter, and how to positively influence change in someone else's diet or lifestyle, such as your kids, friends, family or partner.
WARNING - This show opens with references to 'Erections', and before you think WTF, we did a quick research review of erectile function and plant based diets.
#611 - Life Choices: I Interview my Mum
To truly understand ourselves we must understand our past and our upbringing, and there is no better way to do this than to grill your mum on what you were like as a kid - so I've done just that. I sit down with my mum and ask her "what was I like as a kid" "what was I good at" "what choices did I make" "how did the divorce effect me" "how have you seen me develop and mature" "what parenting principals did you try live by", and more. This is an interview I have wanted to do for a long time, and I had no idea how it would pan out, but I definitely learnt a thing or two about myself...

Truly makes you think and helps you manifest an awesome life
I’ve been a loyal listener since the beginning and Ben has always been extremely honest, knowledgeable, raw, well-spoken, and clearly wants to do everything he can to serve his audience.
Listening to this podcast has had a profound impact on my nutrition, fitness, and mindset and is a big reason why I am proud of the person I am today and am living an awesome life!
The education I’ve gained from this podcast has helped me lose over 50 lbs, get rid of my high blood pressure, overcome depression, overcome an eating disorder, and has inspired me to become a certified personal trainer and health coach!
I know I can trust everything Ben and Tom say because they base everything off of research and approach everything without bias.
Thank you so much Ben for serving so many people and for continuing to inspire me to help others live happy, healthy, fulfilling lives!
Keep it up buddy!
Finally, someone who doesn’t come across as over elite and explains things!
My favorite part about listening to Ben and his show is that Ben clearly has an abundance of well researched and tested knowledge. But he doesn’t come across as so elite that following him is useless. He talks to the listeners as if they are his best friends asking for help. Even the quick shows start with a “how are you? I hope you’re awesome!” and oddly I feel like he’s seriously saying / meaning. that and not just using a good opening line. Ben and his guests have really expanded my food / training knowledge and continue to do so. Thanks Ben, thanks Tom, and thanks to your guests!
