“Giving up excess calories” inspired me to lose weight.

After listening to the episode “giving up excess calories” in mid-July, I couldn’t get the idea out of my mind, so a couple days later, I downloaded MyFitnessPal.
I’ve lost 23.3 pounds since then, and am now officially in the healthy weight range! All it took was the standard 500 calorie reduction. At this rate, I will reach my goal weight sometime early next year. Hearing Mark and Julie discuss their experience, in this case especially Mark discussing how easy it was for him to lose his first few pounds, made me believe I could do it too. Julie keeping a level head and opening up about body image has likely been benefits in the long term as well. I’m standing undressed before my bathroom mirror as I write this, and I can see the changes now. My body image is changing as well. I’m almost to where I’ve wanted to be for a long time, and I owe it to you two. So thank you.

I hope they never finish growing up.

Julie and Marc have a great time while while checking on the history (that's interesting) and science (YAY THIS PART IS MY FAVORITE!) of things most people just take for granted. This is a great show to binge on, but is also great because if you know someone who is interested in a certain topic they can listen to just that episode and be fine. But I'm pretty sure that once you start you'll want to hear them all anyway.
