I don't share too many of my podcast interviews, but this one was exceptionally enjoyable talking on some topics that I haven't previously covered. If you want to hear more of my backstory and how my mindset has evolved over the years, then give this a listen.

I also talk about the link between social media and mental health and how Instagram is like the wizard of oz and the highlight reel vs the reality of the sweaty man behind the curtain.

Tim Spector is Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King's College London. 

He has won several academic awards and published over 700 academic papers, a large proportion of which relate directly to nutrition and the causes of obesity. Since 2011 he has been leading the largest microbiome project in the UK, using genetic sequencing to study the bacteria in the guts of 5,000 twins. He is the lead investigator for BRITISH GUT, the UK's largest open-source science project to understand the microbial diversity of the human gut.

He is a prolific writer with several popular science and diet books, the most recent of which will be the focus of today’s conversation.  That book is called Spoon-Fed: Why Almost Everything We’ve Been Told about Food is Wrong. 

If you’ve never questioned the conventional “wisdom” when it comes to the food choices you make or you just geek out on nutrition and anything to do with the gut (like me), then this is a must listen. 

 Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s podcast: 

  •     Why personalized nutrition is the way forward and the problem with ‘one size fits all’ diets.
  •     The diet myth and if you look after your gut how your gut will look after you.
  •     The most unsupportive myth for people with fat or weight loss goals.
  •     The optimal diet and lifestyle for gut health.
  •     What do look out for when choosing fish, meat and plants to eat. 
  •     Studying identical twins and what that shows us about weight loss and genetics.
  •     Why you can’t out exercise a bad diet and the importance of gut microbes for weight loss.
  •     Breaking down all the major nutritional misconceptions and myths out there.

Rob and Yvonne have been together for 20 years, married 12, and are the parents of two young boys.

Like so many couples and families out there, they fell into the trap of convenient food, takeaways and eating out, thinking they were far too busy to cook!

After their first holiday alone without the boys, they returned feeling tired, overweight and almost depressed. Their weight had increased and their energy levels had decreased, therefore they knew something had to change.

They set themselves goals, supported each other and committed to losing weight together. Over the course of two years, they went on to lose a whopping 13 stone (over 180 pounds). 

I’ve been dying to do this episode for nearly a year now; so, I hope you get as inspired from it as I did. 

Some of the topics we talked about in today’s podcast. 

 

·      Their journey to losing over 180 pounds in 2 years (and keeping it off) 

·      The mindset shift of ‘dieting’ vs a lifestyle change. 

·      The only thing you have to give up for weight loss are excuses

·      New year weight loss pitfalls to watch out for 

·      Self-belief and its importance for long term weight loss
