This Pod is good for your Bod

I just finished listening to two Fat-Burning Man episodes, back-to-back. The Ellen Goldsmith and Chaz Branham episodes were interesting counterpoints to each other with recurring underlying messages: listen to the signals our bodies are giving us. Too often food and exercise become ideas we carry with us about what “should” happen based on common knowledge, advertising, the pressure of our current age and society, or just plain misguided attempts to give ourselves what we need to be healthy and whole. What I enjoyed so much about the episodes individually, but especially taken together, was their illuminating ideas and approaches to view nutrition or exercise as fundamental parts of the human spiritual experience, far beyond conventional modern notions of the physical compartmentalization of food to body, or workouts to body.

In both episodes, the interviewees had made their own journeys, still ongoing, from being on autopilot, getting away with giving their (much younger) selves sub-optimum inputs, be that not enough high-quality (hi-chi!) Nutrition, or far too much hyper-stressful and non-sustainable weighted exercises. Don’t we all want to go from youthful inexperience to informed wisdom? As someone in their late thirties who has run the full gamut of most of the mistakes one can make with food, with exercise (and the scars to show for them), I found resonance with my own narratives, with my own experiments, failed and successful.

The process of working oneself from being not at ease (dis-ease) to health is not always intuitive, and is not always fast. Getting older does not have to mean that you compromise your health, or you write off things you used to do and love - quite the opposite. Abel’s Goldsmith and Branham episodes offer reassurance and expert guidance in navigating one’s way towards sustainable health, for life. I’ve stumbled across similar practices and insights (mostly through Abel’s show!) and feel, now in my 30s vs. in my 20s (despite being a world-class athlete then), better energy and vitality, better ease of movement, greater strength (on an absolute scale!) and a self-awareness I wish my 20s-self had had. Cheers to Abel and to his guests for giving us paths towards the health we can earn through our informed choices and practices in nutrition and exercise.
