Just quickly, before we begin - I have 3 spots that have opened up for online coaching, and I thought I would offer them to podcast listeners first, as - let’s face it - you guys are awesome. If you’re maybe a bit confused as to how to implement some of the training or nutrition principles we’ve discussed on here, or maybe you’re a bit overwhelmed by all the information out there and you’re struggling to find a way of training that you’re truly happy with, I’m here to help. My coaching is pretty simple - together, we devise training programmes and nutrition guidelines that fit with your lifestyle, and our weekly check-ins are specifically designed to help reassure you that you’re doing the right thing. If this is you, get in touch. Drop me an email at lawrence@shreddedbyscience.com, and say you’ve come from the podcast. I may even offer you a podcast-exclusive discount.

In our final episode of January, we take a look at thriving. Many of you will have started 2018 with the aim of making this year more amazing than ever - so in this episode, we talk to my good friend Nicola Hobbs about just that. 

We cover: 

  • Thriving – what is it, why is it important, why it is important in training/business/relationships/life, THRIVE model (from the book)
  • Positive Psychology - why working in is as important as working out, why mental health is still a taboo
  • Yoga – what is it, benefits, how it can help in gym/work/life, how it changed my life, flow state/samadhi 
  • Meditation and mindfulness – what is it, why it’s important (especially with anxiety and distraction caused by social media), how to do it, explore why more people don’t do it 
  • Spirituality and science – blending an eastern and western approach, what is spirit, why is spiritual health just as important as mental and physical health
  • Key topics from the book Thrive Through Yoga – anxiety, body image, perfectionism, letting go (and any other chapters you think are relevant)
  • Simple things to do to make your experience of life more amazing

In this episode, I chat to Melody Schoenfeld about some of the myths surrounding vegan diets. Melody has spent over 20 years in the industry and has been a vegan since 2000, so she has some wonderful insights to share with you all. 

We talk about: 

  • Why do you lead a vegan lifestyle?
  • What do you feel are the biggest misconceptions surrounding veganism?
  • Why do you think that so many people who eat animal products look down on veganism?
  • What are your top tips for those looking to go vegan without their gym performance or physique suffering?
  • What are your biggest take homes from being in the fitness industry for 20+ years?

In this episode, I chat to Nicola Joyce about her month of veganism in 2017. 

I ask Nicola: 

  • What made you decide to go vegan for a month?
  • To what extent did you “go vegan”?
  • Were there any unexpected surprises during the month?
  • Did you find the vegan month affected your hormonal cycle?
  • You wrote quite a bit about the challenge of getting enough protein - what were the main struggles and how did you try to get around them?
  • What exactly is seitan, and how on earth did you make it?
  • What were the main things you learnt from going vegan for a month?
  • Will you adapt your diet at all going forward?
  • What are your thoughts on eating entirely vegan for a whole month, vs experimenting with including more plant-based food in your day-to-day diet?

You can find Nicola's blog where she details her vegan experiment at https://thefitwriter.wordpress.com/the-vegan-month/

In January, we're going to be focusing on one of the hottest trends of last year - veganism - to coincide with the new trend of "Veganuary". This involves going vegan for the month of January, for any one of a number of reasons: environmental, ethical or health-based. 

In this introductory episode, I have an informal chat with OG SBS Radio co-host Emma Storey-Gordon, as we discuss our own NYRs and give a broad overview of whether we think Veganuary is a good NYR for you.
