Listen in, life philosophers!

Give this podcast a listen. It’s nice to hear Martin speak on his life’s meaning, mistakes and successes and all that he’s learned. He’s a great speaker and has meaningful things to say.

Great information!

The aggressive dieting makes so much since to me, get in, get out, and spend more time at maintenance weight/cal. Thank you for the information, and science of why this works and is a healthy way to loose fat and keep it off.

zachyzz ,

Some interesting concepts but hard to listen

I find the speaker runs off topic a lot on tangents, even quick minor ones doing mental math out loud throwing out lots of “naught point naught naught…” or spending a long time trying to remember the author’s name on a a paper. I found it hard to focus given all the distractions
